    A journalist was assaulted by a soon-to-be congresswoman while asking her questions at a political rally for U.S. Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar in Minnesota on Saturday. Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian Muslim who won her primary in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday, forcefully grabbed Jewish journalist Laura Loomer and stole her phone when Loomer approached her to ask questions at the rally. In the Middle East, violence against Jews may be tolerable. In America, where Tlaib – running unopposed after her primary win – and is set to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives, it is not. In fact,...

    Here is radical Leftist Democrat Candidate Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim, running for Congress in Michigan on CNN today where she advocated for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). When pressed on whether she wants America to have Border Security – she would NOT say she does. Folks, THIS is today’s Democrat. This is the Democrat Party now. It’s not the Party of FDR, JFK, Harry Truman anymore. It’s a collection of radicals whose policies are dangerous for America. . . .

    DETROIT (Reuters) – Soul singer Aretha Franklin, who recently underwent surgery for an undisclosed health issue, was reported to be suffering from pancreatic cancer, the Detroit News said on its web site. Publicists for the 68-year-old singer, who has canceled all her appearances through May 2011, could not immediately be reached for comment...

    This is exclusive, and heart breaking for me and for the family and friends of the great Aretha Franklin. She is gravely ill in Detroit. The family is asking for prayers and privacy. Originally diagnosed with cancer in 2010, Aretha, who turned 76 in March, bravely battled back and refused to be knocked out by illness. Her last performance as on November 2, 2017 for the Elton John AIDS Foundation in New York. Her final public performance was at Philadelphia’s Mann Center in August 2017. It was a miraculous show as Aretha was already then fighting exhaustion and dehydration. Aretha...

    A conservative activist crashed a campaign event for two Muslim candidates on Saturday, interrupting them with shouted questions about Hamas and “terrorist groups.” Laura Loomer, formerly of the group Project Veritas, shared images and video of the incident on Twitter, calling the candidates "Jihadi" and writing that she was helping Minnesotans “break free from Sharia.” The event supported Minnesota state Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL) and former Michigan state Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D). Omar is a Somali-American candidate running to fill the congressional seat vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison (D), who is running for Minnesota attorney general. Tlaib, meanwhile, won the...

    Training camp for child terrorists has chilling connection to top Democratic Party operative. Siraj Ibn Wahhaj Jr., 40, of Clayton County, Georgia, was arrested along with his two sisters and two other adults last Friday in New Mexico on charges of felony child abuse ... But there is more to this story that is not appearing in the nightly news accounts we've all been following. Nobody is talking about Wahhaj's well-connected father, Siraj Wahhaj Sr., a radical Brooklyn imam who is the spiritual adviser to Democratic Socialist and Bernie Sanders supporter Linda Sarsour. The elder Wahhaj also has ties to...

    Mitt Romney is calling on Americans to “categorically and consistently reject racism and discrimination” on the anniversary of racist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 and on the eve of a repeat of the Unite the Right rally this year in Washington, DC. The former Massachusetts governor and current US Senate candidate in Utah issued a lengthy statement on Friday defending equality, steeped in his religious upbringing and belief that “we are all children of God.” Romney, who ran against President Barack Obama as the 2012 Republican nominee for president, touched on a number of issues in his post. He...

    A Massachusetts bill that recommended teaching children as young as 12 about oral and anal sex failed in the state House last week amid growing public outrage. The College Fix reports state Senate Bill 2128 passed the state Senate but died in the House last week when the legislative session ended. The bill seemed harmless enough at first. It would have required public schools to provide “comprehensive” sex education that is medically accurate and age-appropriate. This included “the benefits of abstinence and delaying sexual activity” and “the effective use of contraceptives and barrier methods.” However, Andrew Beckwith, president of the...
  • Think Confederate monuments are racist? Consider pioneer monuments

    08/09/2018 6:58:38 PM PDT · by Altura Ct. · 13 replies
    In San Francisco, there is an an 800-ton monument that retells California history, from the Spanish missions to American settlement. Several bronze sculptures and relief plaques depict American Indians, white miners, missionaries and settlers. A female figure symbolizing white culture stands atop a massive stone pillar. The design of the “pioneer monument” was celebrated in newspapers across the country when it was erected in 1894. Today, however, apctivists argue that the monument – particularly its depiction of a Spanish missionary and Mexican “vaquero,” or cowboy, towering over an American Indian – is demeaning to American Indians. Should the city take...

    White Republican voters chose a black conservative over a white billionaire in Michigan.  How can that be?  Democrat Andre Carson of the Congressional Black Caucus said the Tea Party (conservatives and Republicans) is racist and wants to see blacks "hanging on a tree."  Folks, as a black Tea Party activist since 2008, I can tell you this is the evil slander of salt-of-the-earth patriotic white voters I have been fighting.  Black conservative John James won Michigan's U.S. Senate Republican primary because he shares the values of most Americans.  James boldly expresses his desire to help Trump Make America Great Again.  Voters chose James because of...

    John James winning the GOP primary for one of Michigan's Senate seats could (hopefully) end up being one of the more significant political events of the year. If you haven't seen him speak, I'd invite you to go ahead and pull up some clips of his recent appearances. He's brand new to the political stage, so of course we'll have to reserve final judgement, but from all appearances, he seems to be right on point in terms of the MAGA movement, conservatism and the best of the Republican Party. He "gets it", and he's got the biography (West Point, Iraq...

    Local officials are investigating after a Michigan county ran short on ballots after a historic voter turnout for a spate of elections on Tuesday, The Detroit Free Press reported. The news outlet reported Wednesday that 34 percent of voters attempted to cast a ballot in a host of state, local and national elections on the ballot in Oakland County. That number was five percentage points higher than area officials were expecting. Officials attributed the shortage to a confluence of factors, including two open Congressional seats to replace Reps. David Trott (R) and Sander Levin (D). Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown...

    Voters in Ohio's 12th Congressional District appear to have narrowly elected Republican Troy Balderson in yesterday's special election, thwarting Democrats' hopes to flip another GOP-held seat ahead of the midterm elections.  The race came down to the wire, but the incumbent party ultimately prevailed.  There's a small chance that provisional ballots could trigger a recount, and that absentee ballots could shift votes, but left-leaning elections guru Dave Wasserman looks at the math and effectively calls the contest over, discerning that defeated Democrat Danny O'Connor would "need a miracle" to reverse the outcome.  For all intents and purposes, and barring major...

    A Green Party candidate for Congress in Ohio's nail-biter contest who won nearly enough votes to throw the race into an automatic recount – gave a speech-slurred interview this year in which he couldn't remember his own website address. Joe Manchik also says he's descended from aliens and hails from the town of Hell, Michigan. In Tuesday's closely watched special election, 1,127 Ohioans chose him over Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O'Connor.

    Here’s all you need to know about Michigan primary results: the two candidates endorsed by President Trump won. It’s not his fault that Attorney General Bill Schuette - who launched his political career 34 years ago with election to the U.S. House – is a RINO. His only viable rival in the race, Brian Calley, was an even bigger RINO. I loved Patrick Colbeck, my state senator, rocket scientist and certifiable conservative who was also running for governor, but he had no money, no campaign and sadly no talent for politics (something all RINOs have). So with Schuette as our...

    John James has won the Republican nomination in Michigan's U.S. Senate race. With 29 percent of precincts reporting, initial results on Tuesday night showed James with 56.96 percent of the vote to opponent Sandy Pensler's 43.04 percent. The Associated Press called the race for James at 10:11 p.m. James will go on to face incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow in the general election. Stabenow, who was unopposed in the Democratic primary, was first elected to represent Michigan in the U.S. Senate since 2000. In a statement following the call, James said Stabenow "better get ready for the fight of her political...
