    Candace Owens, the Communications Director for Turning Point USA, issued a challenge to Avengers 4 star and Captain America actor Chris Evans after he expressed “racist sentiments.” By the way, @ChrisEvans—since you seem to suggest that black people who don’t agree with you are “stupid”, I openly challenge you to a debate. @Politicon is in a couple of weeks. Why don’t you put your racist sentiments on full display and debate a black conservative?—Candace Owens (@RealCandaceO) October 1, 2018 (snip) After Kanye West appeared on Saturday Night Live wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, the superstar musician would follow...
  • Colleges Don’t Need 9/11 Memorial Ceremonies

    A couple weeks ago, the internet’s right-wing outrage machine trained its sights on the small liberal arts school in Wisconsin where I teach. Ripon College had banned 9/11 memorials, venues like the Drudge Report and the Federalist Papers declared, because they might make Muslim students uncomfortable. On Twitter, folks who’d never previously heard of the school inveighed against its reputation, suggesting Ripon must be run by anti-American communists. One professor, born in Germany, received an email calling him a Nazi. There were threats of violence, and the cleverest tweets noted, “Ripon must be a Rip-off!”

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo, running for a third term and a potential candidate for president in 2020, acknowledged Friday that he was “inartful” when he said this week that America “was never that great.”The Democrat went on to expound on something that few elected officials ever need to spell out.“I want to be very clear: Of course America is great and of course America has always been great,” Cuomo said on a teleconference with reporters.Cuomo’s appraisal of the nation was somewhat different Wednesday when, speaking at a Manhattan bill signing, he critiqued Republican President Donald Trump and...
  • Jay-Z: Black Unemployment Drop Under Trump Doesn't Matter, "Because It's Not About Money"

    Hip-hop icon Jay-Z said the drop of black unemployment under President Trump does not make him a good leader because "money doesn't equate to happiness" in an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday night. "To give him a little bit of credit too, he is somebody who is now saying, look, I’m growing – I’m dropping black unemployment," Jones said of Trump. "Black people are doing well under my administration." "Does he have a point that maybe the Democrats have been giving us good lip service, but no jobs. He may say terrible things, but putting money in...

    Hundreds of educators have endorsed a letter opposing the "demonization" of Williams Ayers – the domestic terrorist who helped launch Barack Obama's poliltical career, and whose relationship with the Democratic presidential candidate continues to be major controversy – arguing that frequent reports of his involvement in domestic bombings are "designed to intimidate free thinking and stifle critical dialogue." "We write to support our colleague Professor William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who is currently under determined and sustained political attack," reads the letter, available for endorsement at "The...

    Attack us. Show us how ugly you are and the little respect you have for our wellbeing. Belittle our religion, our faith, our God. Distort our convictions and love of country. Make a parody of our conviction to family. Call us breeders, Christian zealots, and jingoist. Let us know that you will use our grace and gentleness against us. The things we believe, all men instinctively know. Let us know that you have no desires but power. No conviction but raw greed. No love of community but self interest. No honor, but perversion.

I will be correcting some of the factual errors I have a feeling could possibly arise. I welcome any company. This Thursday at Noon, Phoenix State Capitol. 1700 W. Jefferson.

    The San Diego Union-Tribune ^ | March 18, 2008 | Chris Reed
    It was extremely unlikely that Hillary Clinton was going to overcome Barack Obama's lead in delegates, states and total votes and take the Democratic nomination, but Obama's speech this morning -- graceful, thoughtful, nuanced, sweeping, challenging, unprecedented -- pretty much wiped out any chance at all. It was a speech Hillary could never have given -- really, few U.S. politicians ever could have given. I write this not just because I think this will dampen the Rev. Wright controversy. I write this because Obama did an extraordinary job of presenting himself as the candidate of "the better angels of our...

    Waterbury Republican-American ^ | February 6, 2008 | Editorial
    Historians credit left-wingers with coining "politics of fear" to belittle Sen. Joseph McCarthy's campaign against communists in the U.S. government. The phrase went into hibernation in the 1960s, a torpidity even warmonger-in-waiting Lyndon Johnson's daisy-girl ad couldn't disturb, only to reemerge in the 1980s to denigrate Ronald Reagan's Cold War-winning strategy. These days, the phrase has become the lefties' No. 1 rhetorical trump card against the war against Islamic terrorism. To them, Americans have more to fear from the Bush administration than from the terrorists who seek to bring America to heel. Sen. Barack Obama uses it in almost every...

    The true novelty of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance Monday at Columbia University did not, as many critics would have it, lie in the fact that an august Ivy League institution had invited the Iranian president—a Holocaust denier, authoritarian leader, and sponsor of terrorism—to speak on its campus. The protests, the fury, the screaming New York tabloid headlines, the counterarguments about free speech—all that sort of thing we have seen before. No, the novelty of Ahmadinejad's appearance at Columbia lies in the fact that he wanted to make that speech at all. Though a blustering Columbia dean foolishly told Fox News that...

    When Americans evaluate today's political landscape, most feel something between impotence and disapproval. So, while citizens shake their heads or shrug at the mainstream media's “top tier” presidential candidates, it is extraordinary how many are becoming overjoyed about one lesser covered candidate. Tens-of-thousands have joined the appropriately named Ron Paul Revolution, joining groups, putting up signs, and crossing states to attend rallies. Congressman Ron Paul's genuine message and untarnished record of promoting individual liberty for everyone, a free-market economy of wealth and abundance, and a foreign policy of non-intervention, peace and free trade, has attracted vast support from diverse...

    .. MD:.. I watched some of Tuesday's House testimony by former CIA analyst and head Bin Laden hunter Michael Scheuer on C-SPAN. *snip* .. he made a vitriolic attack on your work on the secret prisons story. His basic viewpoint could be summed up as "people are trying to kill Americans -- we have to kill those people and if innocents suffer along the way, tough." I did some Internet research and the guy seems to run with an odd mix of people -- including, a libertarian site that sees all war as a tool of state expansion. Yet...

    When the world is silent amidst American aggression -- Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia -- it indicates assent, writes Curtis F J Doebbler* -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- As an American citizen, it is fascinating and harrowing to watch my country under President George W Bush stumble from one horrific mistake to another, but at the same time it is even more worrying to watch the cowardly response of other world leaders. When the US attacked Afghanistan in 2001, the world's leaders shrugged this off as a necessary and unpreventable response to a horrific act against the US. Almost no world leader questioned the use of...

    Sept. 4, 2006 — He's tackled Wal-Mart and Fox News with his scathing documentaries. Now, filmmaker Robert Greenwald is releasing a documentary which argues that private companies helping to fight the war in Iraq don't have the nation's best interests in mind. "Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers" debuts in limited release this week, and presents an assault on companies that provide the kinds of services in Iraq that the military once handled itself, such as supplying food, water and mail delivery for the reconstruction. In the film, former KBR/Halliburton water purification specialist Ben Carter is interviewed and says when...

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has changed the way it chooses nominees for best foreign-language film and eliminated a rule requiring entries to be in the official language of the submitting country. The academy’s governors approved a new process in judging foreign-language films, allowing New York-area academy members to participate in the selection for the first time, according to a statement issued last week. A shortlist of films from nine countries will be chosen by the same Los Angeles screening committee that has traditionally viewed the approximately 60 submissions. That shortlist will...

The NOW PAC put Hays in San Diego prior to the April 11 Special Election, and sent her and another organizer Monely Soltani there again in late May to work on the run-off vote, held concurrently...

    The poem by seven–year-old Autum Ashante ”White Nationalism Put U in Bondage,” has caused quite a stir in some circles but it shouldn’t have. It is the truth and Blacks who read their history know it is. The fact that the Pikesville, N.Y. school system has banned this young child from performing without doing its homework, is an indication of how little history our children are learning in our schools about what really happened in this country from slavery days to the present. Autum, the daughter of a Nation of Islam poet and activist, is no stranger to the Black...
