    “Microaggression” list scorns would-be bigots An official University of California list of racist “microaggressions” asserts that saying “I’m not racist” is racist. The university guide defines microaggressions as, “everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalized group membership.” Examples listed on the university’s official website include telling someone, “you speak English very well,” telling an Asian person that they are good at math and insisting that “America is a melting pot”. Using the phrase, “I’m not racist, I have several...

Suchomel was uninjured in the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, and after the terrifying event she used her Facebook presence to contradict the official story of a lone gunman. According to Kymberley Suchomel’s posts, there were multiple shooters involved in the horrific mass shooting that left 58 people dead and 546 injured. In fact, Suchomel, who was the co-founder of the High Desert Phoenix...

    A flyer recently appeared at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs (UCCS) declaring that “in order to protect our academic institutions we must ban veterans from four-year universities.”The flyer is part of a new “Social Justice Collective Weekly” newsletter, which is not affiliated with the school, and is aimed at “promoting justice in our society.” The first issue of the newsletter includes an article titled “Should Veterans Be Banned From UCCS and Other Universities?” "Extremist right-wing groups must be suppressed on campus. This would include their followers: veterans." “A four-year, traditional university is supposed to be a place of learning, of...
  • Calexit III? New ballot measure plots another route to California independence (YES!)

    Sacbee ^ | 8/17/17 | Jim Miller
    On Thursday, people unhappy with California’s place in the United States filed yet another proposed ballot measure that could lead to the Golden State striking out on its own. This time, the goal is convening a U.S. constitutional convention to overhaul what proponents call a moldy national blueprint out of step with life in California. The measure says a reworked Constitution should include a provision creating a “clear and reasonable path for states to achieve complete independence from the United States should any state so choose.” No state has become independent under the existing U.S. Constitution. “The world has changed...

    **SNIP** That recruitment process will continue with the California National Party’s third annual convention, which takes place on Sunday at the Betty Ong Rec Center in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, who has been at the forefront of a campaign to qualify a California secession initiative, is the keynote speaker. Attendees will also revise the party’s progressive official platform, which in addition to the contention that the Golden State is overtaxed and underrepresented on the national stage, advocates single-payer universal healthcare, an overhaul of policing and criminal justice policies, high-speed rail and a path to citizenship for undocumented...

    No state has taken the election of President Donald Trump harder than California. The Golden State has long been overrun by liberals as Hillary Clinton’s swamping of Trump by over 4 million votes shows. California hasn’t taken kindly to Trump’s win. State Democrats brought in former Obama regime fixer and ex-Attorney General Eric Holder as a legal hired gun and Hollywood celebrities are calling for coups, martial law, open rebellion, and even outright violence. Unbelievably, a recent comic book/graphic novel “CalExit” promotes the idea of armed revolt against the United States government.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will deliver the keynote address March 31 at the Revolution for Truth rally in Washington, D.C., organized by the Vaccination Injury Awareness League to call for more transparency in the research and government approval process of an ever-expanding schedule of vaccines. Kennedy has said that he is “pro-vaccine,” but he believes more research should be done to investigate potential health risks and is critical of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s handling of the issue. “CDC recommended five pediatric vaccines when I was a boy in 1954,” says Kennedy, son of the late U.S. Senator...

    Self-described “serial monogamist” Susan Sarandon recently told a gay website her sexuality was “up for grabs.” “Is your sexuality more or less rigid these days? Basically, should we be welcoming you to the family?” an interviewer with asked the 70-year-old actress in an interview published Tuesday. “Well, I’m a serial monogamist, so I haven’t really had a large dating career,” Ms. Sarandon answered. “I married Chris Sarandon when I was 20, and that went on for quite a while — each of my relationships have. I haven’t exactly been in the midst of a lot of offers of any...

    Calling the Colorado Republican Party’s decision not to hold a primary popular vote a scandal, talk-radio host Michael Savage declared Sen. Ted Cruz should disavow the move and call for a vote. “What just happened in Colorado should, frankly, disqualify Cruz, who claims to be a constitutional conservative,” Savage told his listeners Monday. Savage is a strong supporter of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, who has been a regular guest on “The Savage Nation.” (full article at link)

    The Ted Cruz sex scandal may be nothing of the sort, some journalists are beginning to say after the seemingly bombshell story hit the news this week. On Friday, the National Enquirer reported that Cruz had been something of a ladies man in Washington, with five different mistresses. It appeared to be a major story, especially given Cruz's strong Christian faith and his seemingly strong morals. But there very quickly appeared to be cracks in the story, and now many journalists are going on record to raise doubts that any of it might be true. The most immediate denials came...

He has conducted thousands of interviews and interrogations for the CIA and other federal agencies. His colleague Don Tennant contributed to this report.The eyebrow-raising story that appeared earlier this week in the National Enquirer, citing claims that Sen. Ted Cruz had engaged in five extramarital affairs, drew a sharp response by the Republican presidential contender. Sharp as it was, however, it was strikingly weak in terms of denial, and strong in terms of...

(excerpted) The ($500K, excerpted) money from the Fiorina campaign was laundered through a company called MLJ Consulting. Nearly half of the money spent on ads, over $251,795, was paid to MLJ Consulting.

  • Follow Trump's Money to Moscow

    Renew America ^ | December 25, 2015 | Cliff Kincaid
    The phrase "follow the money" is supposed to help explain human behavior, especially in politics. So why has Donald Trump embraced Russian President Vladimir Putin? Why has he denied the evidence of Putin's killing of Russian journalists and dissidents? A savvy businessman, Trump is certainly not dumb. There must be something else to it. Reports dating back to 1987, during the time of the old Soviet Union, reveal that Trump has been seeking business in Russia and attempting to build a "Russian Trump Tower" in Moscow and perhaps other Russian cities. At this particular time in history, with Putin's cronies...
