    Army to name new attack helicopter after Elizabeth Warren Published 12 hours ago on March 13, 2019 By Jim Bowie FORT RUCKER, Ala. — The U.S. Army will honor Elizabeth Warren and her Native American ancestry with the latest addition to its helicopter fleet, the AH-68 Warren, sources confirmed today. The Warren will join the Black Hawk, Kiowa, Apache, and Lakota in the Army’s impressive legacy of combat aircraft named after Native American tribes. The Warren conquered its two chief competitors, the AH-67 Redskin and V-23 Columbus, to win the Army contract. “The Redskin just offended too many white people,...

  • Elizabeth Warren opens door to reparations for Native Americans

    Elizabeth Warren opens door to reparations for Native Americans By Annie Linskey February 22 at 10:43 PM MANCHESTER, N.H. — Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Friday evening that Native Americans should be “part of the conversation” on reparations, showing a willingness to expand the debate over whether minority groups that have faced discrimination should be financially compensated by the federal government. Warren is one of four Democratic presidential hopefuls who have said in recent days that they’re open to providing some type of reparations to African Americans who are descendants of people who were enslaved in the United States, although they’ve...

    It’s just fine that Elizabeth Warren apologized to the Cherokees for falsely claiming to be one of them. It might be helpful if she also apologizes to the people of Massachusetts. She could have done it Saturday when she made her presidential campaign official, but she didn’t. Instead she reworked and expanded her attack on wealthy Americans who, she said, are not paying their fair share. Massachusetts is not Virginia where Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring, all Democrats, are all caught up in scandals of black face and sexual- harassment charges

    Don’t judge a book by its cover. Especially when that book is a scrapyard. One of the most incredible collections of vintage Indian motorcycles and memorabilia was recently discovered on the property of RJ&C Metal Fabricators in Phoenix, after its owner Rickey Jensen passed away. There, in a locked shed behind the stacks of barrels, beams, random machinery and broken down cars were 15 Indian motorcycles, several of the brand’s bicycles and dozens of signs, clocks and promotional items. According to Mecum Auctions, Jensen mostly kept it a secret, and only one or two other people had ever even known...
  • Native American activist Nathan Phillips has violent criminal record and escaped from jail

    Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist who falsely accused Covington Catholic High School students of blocking him during a confrontation he initiated, has a criminal record — including assault and escape from jail — and appears to have misrepresented his military service. Phillips, 63, suggested high school junior Nick Sandmann, the teenager at the center of the viral encounter after separate D.C. rallies, face expulsion for failing to "accept any responsibility” or apologize to Phillips publicly. In his own teenage years and early 20s, Phillips, using his adoptive name Nathaniel R. Stanard, was charged with escaping from prison, assault, and...

    Some are incapable of viewing the MAGA-hat-wearing teens from Covington Catholic as anything other than pure evil. In the nearly two hours of video footage that greatly elucidate what happened between a group of boys from Covington Catholic High School and Native American veteran Nathan Phillips, there are many moments that turn the media's initial, false narrative—racist teens harass well-meaning elderly man—on its head. ...Undoubtedly, it is a teachable moment for everyone who rushed to join the social media mob condemning the kids as abominable racists, including prominent journalists on the left, right, and center. To their credit, many have...

    The Washington Post has had to issue yet another retraction after falsely claiming that far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips served in the Vietnam War. He didn’t — but this lie was previously used to help raise money for a documentary about his life. On Monday, the Washington Post quietly issued a correction to their story about the activist, saying that while he served in the Marines, he was never deployed to Vietnam. “Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972...

    New York (CNN Business)Twitter suspended an account on Monday afternoon that helped spread a controversial encounter between a Native American elder and a group of high school students wearing Make America Great Again hats. The account claimed to belong to a California schoolteacher. Its profile photo was not of a schoolteacher, but of a blogger based in Brazil, CNN Business found. Twitter suspended the account soon after CNN Business asked about it. The account, with the username @2020fight, was set up in December 2016 and appeared to be the tweets of a woman named Talia living in California. "Teacher &...

The student said he was on the trip to Washington, D.C. for an anti-abortion rally with other Covington Catholic students on Friday.

Phillips is beating a drum inches from the face of the smiling student who is identified as Nick Sandmann. “This guy literally came out of nowhere. He just comes up, beating...

    FULL TITLE: Lawyer for Covington Catholic HS Families Threatens Lawsuits Against Media Unless They Retract False Stories Thanks to the sloppy, one-sided reporting of the malicious, agenda-driven media, a group of Catholic high school teenagers and their families have become the subjects of threats and harassment from a hateful online outrage mob.

CNN Business reported on Monday that Twitter took the step after receiving questions from the news network about the account. The account, @2020fight, posted a minute-long video of the interaction on Friday night with the caption, "this MAGA loser gleefully bothering a Native American protester at the Indigenous Peoples March."

    Native American activist Nathan Phillips confronted MAGA hat-wearing teens from Covington Catholic high school at the March for Life, where video of his interaction with the students went viral in the mainstream media. This is not the first time Phillips has garnered media attention accusing students of racism. Phillips previously accused students from Eastern Michigan University of being racist toward him in 2015. (READ: Phillips Starred In Skrillex Video About Attacking Police). In that 2015 instance, Phillips also approached the students, not the other way around, though he claimed the students called him over. Here is Phillips describing the encounter,...

    In the hours and days since those first snapshots of the encounter made the rounds, however, it has become crystal clear that the original narrative was hugely misleading. Additional videos from different angles began to emerge, proving that the students did not swarm or try to block the drum-toting man; rather, he proactively approached them. We also learned that a small group of African-American men were hurling racial and homophobic insults at the boys, singling out the small number of non-white students in the group for especially grotesque abuse (including creepily telling a black student that his classmates would harvest...

    ... lies spread against a group of Catholic teenagers, who attended the March for Life wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats. However, it is now becoming clear that the crime of assault under D.C. Code § 22–404 was committed against the Catholic boys primarily (but not only) by Native American activist Nathan Phillips. Phillips then massively lied about the incident to local news media. The video proves Phillips lied about every detail. About a dozen of those angry left-wing activists are guilty of the crime of disorderly conduct under D.C. Code 22-1321 when they left the site of their...

    Actress and leftist activist Alyssa Milano smeared the millions of Americans who support President Donald Trump and wear his “Make America Great Again” hat, equating them to the racist killers of the Ku Klux Klan. “The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself,” Alyssa Milano said Sunday in the wake a viral unedited video, which showed a clash between several Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American activist at the March for Life in Washington, DC, on Friday.
