    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed a gathering in Detroit on Sunday to mark the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March, and used it as a platform to launch yet another attack on Jews, calling them “termites.”

    Twitter said Wednesday that it will not suspend Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan over a tweet comparing Jews to termites, the company confirmed to The Hill. Farrakhan, who has been accused of making anti-Semitic remarks for years, posted a clip to Twitter of a speech he gave captioned, "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite." The tweet prompted backlash on the platform, with figures such as Chelsea Clinton blasting it as anti-Semitic. "The responsive laughter makes my skin crawl. For everyone who rightly condemned President Trump’s rhetoric when he spoke about immigrants 'infesting our country,' this rhetoric should be equally...

    Farrakhan tweets video calling Jews 'termites' Harvard Law professor and longtime Democrat Alan Dershowitz blasted Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan Thursday, calling on "all decent people" to condemn him after his most recent anti-Semitic comments. At an event in Detroit, Farrakhan pushed back on those who say he's anti-Semitic by labeling Jews as "termites." "So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, you know what they do, call me an anti-Semite, stop it. I’m anti-termite. I don’t know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference," he said.

    The responsive laughter makes my skin crawl,” Clinton said on Twitter. Chelsea Clinton called Louis Farrakhan’s antisemitism “dangerous” and said laughter in response to it “made my skin crawl.” Clinton, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was reacting on Twitter to a Farrakhan tweet in which the leader of the Nation of Islam said “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-termite.” “Comparing Jews to termites is anti-Semitic, wrong and dangerous,” Clinton tweeted Wednesday, quoting Farrakhan. Twitter, meantime, said it would not suspend Farrakhan from the site. A BuzzFeed reporter quoted a spokesperson for...

    CE car sales are down and EV sales are up. Most people know this much. Also, EV sales are not up by as much as ICE car sales are down. The two metrics are believed to be independent of one another. I believe they are related. When someone purchases a Tesla Model 3, that car sale is an EV and not a new ICE vehicle. So that is a first sale the ICE industry loses. Next, the new EV owner often trades in a used ICE car and someone else will purchase that car. Some number of car buyers will...

    The mainstream media is hellbent on ruining President Trump's reputation. Their latest ploy has been blaming him for Ford Motor's recent announcement of layoffs within the company. The liberal media claimed that Trump's tariffs were to blame. A spokesperson for Ford spoke to Watchdog.org, however, and explained that the whole thing is a "MISCHARACTERIZATION." The most recent job cuts will have an impact on salaried employees only. Manufacturing employees will not be affected. The spokesperson also explained that it has nothing to do with President Trump's tariffs. "The reports you have read about our organization redesign work being related to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 12, 2018
    In the Michigan Senate race, Republican nominee John James remains a long shot against Democratic incumbent Sen. Debbie Stabenow. But he's an especially attractive candidate, and the most recent poll shows him just 9 points behind his overwhelmingly favored opponent. What's going on here? Some might point to the fierce battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's nomination. But I think the candidate himself is the key here. As a small business owner who illustrates both the history and progress of the American dream, James is also a West Point and Harvard graduate and a combat veteran. Although he branched...

    One woman's trip to the gym ended with a brawl and destruction, video shows. A pair of videos posted to Facebook by Alexia Delange show an unidentified woman threatening to kill a Planet Fitness employee in Grand Rapids, Michigan before she starts throwing objects at the man — including a desktop computer. She continues to threaten and shout expletives at the worker, the video shows, and then lunges at him. She tumbles to the floor but gets back up and throws some punches. The video shows the employee deflecting the attacks. "Let's go," she shouts. She then appears to blame...

The Saginaw News reports nothing was found in the search Sunday at Planet Fitness in Saginaw Township, about 85 miles (140 kilometres) northwest of Detroit.

    AFTER A 50-YEAR siege, the great strategic fortress of liberalism has fallen. With the elevation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court seems secure for constitutionalism — perhaps for decades. The shrieks from the gallery of the Senate chamber as the vote came in last Saturday, and the sight of that bawling mob clawing at the doors of the Supreme Court as the new justice took his oath, confirm it. The Democratic Party has sustained a historic defeat. And the triumph is President Trump’s. To unite the party whose nomination he had won, Donald Trump pledged to select his high...

The sweep, called Operation MISafeKid and conducted on Sept. 26, and was aimed at locating victims of sex trafficking. “Three cases were identified as being possible sex trafficking cases, and one homeless teen was transported back to the command post after it was discovered that he had not had anything to eat in three days,” the U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release.

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on tour. The Clintons announced on Monday that they would headline a series of live events together -- billed "An Evening with The Clintons" -- across the country in the final weeks of 2018 and into 2019. The tour will provide the Democratic stalwarts with a notable platform weeks after the consequential 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, when a number of Democrats will be jockeying for positions in the fight to be the party's standard bearer against President Donald Trump in 2020. The events, which are being produced by tour promoter Live...

    The only thing that’ll make the Kavanaugh saga sweeter for righties at this point is watching their least favorite lawyer get the Billy Batts treatment from his Democratic frenemies. He’s spent the past six months telling them to go get their shinebox. They were destined to stomp him as soon as an opportunity presented itself. “Well you know at some point there were a lot of folks coming forward making all sorts of accusations,” said Sen. Gary Peters, a Michigan Democrat, when asked about the allegations raised by Avenatti and his client. “It turns it into a circus atmosphere and...

Edsel Ford the founder had another vision for this foundation which has never been met. His goal was: “to receive and administer funds for scientific, educational and charitable purposes, all for the public welfare.” During its early years, the foundation operated in Michigan under the leadership of Ford family members and their associates and supported the Henry Ford Hospital and the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, among other organizations. Since his presidency, Walker needs to fix the world and make...
