    Is this the rioter’s goal? The Daily Caller posted the following video on Tuesday. It depicts hundreds or even thousands of whites sitting or kneeling with their hands before a black leader and repeating everything she says in unison. This event took place at the Connie Morella Library in Bethesda, Maryland. Leader: “…About racism, anti-blackness or violence.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “I will use my voice in the most uplifting way possible.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “And do everything in my power to educate my community.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “I will love my black neighbors the...

    ...Antifa has never had to hide in Seattle, Portland or the rest of the West Coast. When the news media is forced to mention them at all, they obligingly call them “anti-fascists”, which, this week, useful idiots have been touting on Twitter as proof that being against Antifa means one is for fascism, to which I have replied, “why are you against ‘Making America Great Again?” Antifa loves guns, they have a militia arm and they have practiced seizing civilian infrastructure, part of Phase Two on Mao’s rules for Insurgencies In notoriously anti-Second Amendment Seattle, Antifa open-carried. They commandeered a...

    I'm just currently in a debate with someone online over the alleged mistreatment of minorities by the Florida justice system who originally citied this article dating back to 2017 as evidence for such a claim "Bias on the Bench" http://projects.heraldtribune.com/bias/ In response I citied the rebuttal by the 12th Circuit themselves. http://www.jud12.flcourts.org/Portals/0/News/Documents/Final-Response-SHT-Article/Final_response_to_bias_on_the_bench.pdf#page=2&view=fit He then citied another article that "facts checks" that response called 'Fact checking the 12th Circuit’s “final response”'. http://projects.heraldtribune.com/bias/fact-checking-the-12th-circuit/ I looked at the 12th Circuit's Judical site for their response but I could not find one. I was just wondering if anyone knows if there ever was another...

    Rod Rosenstein is currently testifying before the Senate and it’s not going well. While there will no doubt be a lot more to come out as the day unfolds, there’s already been some highlights that are worth hitting. For example, Rosenstein is admitting that he had no evidence by which to start the Mueller investigation. Jonathan Turley @JonathanTurley · 3h Replying to @JonathanTurley Rosenstein just said he did not know that investigators by the early January 2017 asked for Flynn to be removed from the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. He signed off on these warrants and applications but was never informed...

    A march through the streets of Portland in protest of the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody, turned into a fiery, violent downtown riot, with damage and looters at several locations. The Multnomah County Justice Center in downtown Portland was set on fire. That fire was put out. At least one other fire was started in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and Main Street. There were scenes of Dumpster fires, vandalism, and widespread looting at Pioneer Place Mall. All in all, they destroyed everything that came in their way. A disabled...

    The party affiliation of U.S. big city mayors tells an interesting story. The list can be viewed on wikipedia if you google "U.S. mayors 50 biggest cities" ... unlike metropolitan area populations, this list goes strictly by the populations within the cities. Democrats are mayors in 35 of these cities, Republicans in thirteen and independents in two. Rather than listing all the cities run by Democrats, it is all but these: Republicans are mayors in San Diego, Jacksonville, Fort Worth, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Fresno, Mesa, Colorado Springs, Omaha, Miami, Tulsa, Virginia Beach and Arlington TX. Independents are mayors of...

    Red State Nation ^ | 06.03.2020 | Sarah Hall
    Thousands of people across the US have flooded the streets to protest police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death. But as protesters confront police brutality, some are concerned that some protesters are being needlessly aggressive. In several videos circulating on social media, protesters deface, destroy property, or steal things from shop owners. President Donald Trump has blamed some of the protests on Antifa, an umbrella term for anti-fascists, and has sought to designate it as a domestic terrorist group. Attorney General William Barr has also blamed Antifa and “groups of outside radicals and agitators” for “riots” at the...

    Unlike with the reopen marches, where journalists gave us up to the minute “reports” on how protesters were not social distancing and/or not wearing masks, we have not been hearing the same “you’re gonna kill people, you selfish jerk!” lectures from Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media regarding those marching over the officer-involved death of George Floyd. Pharmacist Matt Dawson became so disgusted and frustrated over the hypocrisy and mixed messaging that he went on an epic rant on his Twitter feed Monday, calling out the inconsistencies of Democratic leaders and media figures who just a few days...

    Right Journalism ^ | 06.03.2020 | Alex D.
    As protests over George Floyd’s death spread across the country, officials have blamed the violent nature of some demonstrations on members of a controversial group known as Antifa. President Donald Trump on Sunday said the United States would designate Antifa a terrorist organization, and he received huge support for his intentions! But it seems that American patriots had enough of having their stores burned and their cities destroyed. Antifa tried to riot in Yucaipa, California but their actions were not so well received. The patriotic citizens decide to defend themself and this could be a lesson for every violent rioter...

Murphy spokesman Mahen Gunaratna declined to comment, adding, “We’re not going to dignify anonymous allegations with a response.” NJ Advance Media knows the identity of three of the employees, who asked not to be named because of fears of retaliation. They say other staffers joined them, but they would...

    The majority of those who have died in the riots at the hands of ANTIFA were black, which is a stunning statistic when you consider that ANTIFA is mostly white. Do you see this as an ‘organic movement to protest police violence’? I see nothing of the kind. I see rioters, looters, thieves, assaulters and all manner of degenerate humanity being sent in as an ersatz military force by the global elites to tear society down to shreds, so that a New World Order can rise up in its place. This is nothing to do with the death of George...

    Republican National Committee officials are considering Nashville and other locations as potential sites for the GOP convention amid a standoff with North Carolina over whether it will allow the party to hold it in Charlotte as planned. Party officials are expected to make a trip to Nashville later this week, likely Thursday or Friday, according to a person familiar with the deliberations. Nashville is one of several locations in which Republicans are expressing interest. Others include Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Georgia. All of the prospective sites have directly expressed interest in hosting the convention, and party officials...

    ...It is true that there are injustices in the United States. It is true that there is tension and distrust between the police and racial minorities, and that this has terrible human costs, George Floyd’s death prominent among them. But the rioters and looters and their apologists are advancing a more specific claim still: that Floyd’s death is not just an individual tragedy worthy of particular outrage, but part of an epidemic of lethal violence perpetrated against unarmed black men by police officers. That such tragedies happen with startling frequency. That black men cannot leave the house without getting shot...

    Former Vice-President Joe Biden backed off from an earlier promise to choose "a woman of color" as his running mate for the November election, saying "my run-in with Charlamagne Tha God last week has caused me pause. I thought that skin color would be sufficient as a measure of authentic blackness. Now I have my doubts." "Likewise, I have been informed that my classification of what constitutes a 'woman' may be too rigid for today's reality," Biden added. "What seemed simple is now complex. I thought Sen. Kamala Harris or Gov. Stacey Abrams were obvious choices. Now I'm not sure...

    Neo-Ciceronian Times ^ | June 2, 2020 | Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus
    Over the past week, Americans have been treated to the spectacle of rioting and looting that has engulfed dozens of our major cities. One thing that many of them didn’t recognise until this started, however, is the widely spread regimen of anarchotyranny that accompanies, and will continue to accompany, the response on the parts of the elites in power to these riots. Many have criticised Democratic mayors and governours for weakness in the face of the rioting, but that actually miscomprehends what it taking place. Rather, these politicians have purposefully been softpedaling their responses to the crises in their cities...

    Chaziel Sunz (Former Black Lives Matter Ferguson Organizer) shined the light on who pays for Antifa, Black Lives Matter, what the plan is of the Democratic Party! The video was never reported by any major news outlet probably because that doesn’t fit their narrative! Chaziel Sunz exposed the plan of the Democratic Party using the ethnic groups. Transcript below: “For the people still believing that this Black movement, even some of these White movements, are legit, man, you have a lot of growing to do. A lot of the Black leaders are straight leading us to our demise. They have...

    Tucker Carlson went live last night after a weekend of violent rioting and looting across many of America’s major cities. He took no prisoners in what was easily the most important monologue of his career. It’s a moment in media history that will still be talked about a decade from now. That’s how powerful it was, whether you agree with every conclusion or not. Over the course of 30 minutes, Carlson laid out the case that our leaders have failed to protect us in this time of chaos. He played the clips of men and women being beaten, the videos...

    While he acknowledged that "the fight against COVID is largely won," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) vowed "to keep this City shutdown as long as I can. We mustn't overlook the greater threat posed by the possibility that Trump will be reelected. Averting such a possibility is my top priority. If that causes additional suffering in the short-run that's a price we have to be willing to pay." To bolster his strategy, the Mayor pointed to a just-released statement by Harvard professor Jason Furman that "a strong economic recovery would almost certainly lead to President Trump winning...
