    I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!

    Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren asked Rev. Al Sharpton and a mostly black crowd for an “amen” during a speech she was giving at a National Action Network conference Thursday. . . . “So when the Trump administration and the Republicans take steps to undermine equal rights, to roll back economic opportunity or to subvert equal justice under law, then we’re going to call them out and we’re going to fight back every single time,” Warren declared, before asking “Can I have an amen on that?”

    Al Sharpton will be marching on Washington on Martin Luther King Day, just five days before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. It may be a lonely walk. Sharpton’s “We Shall Not Be Moved” march has piqued the interest of fewer than 1,000 people on Facebook. A rival event, the Women’s March on Washington, has already secured 175,000 RSVPs, with an additional 250,000 people saying they’re interested in attending. Two key organizers of the Women’s March are former executive directors of National Action Network, the civil-rights nonprofit Sharpton founded in 1991. Led almost exclusively by women of color, the Women’s March is...

    There is something otherworldly about Hillary Clinton accusing her Republican rival of running a presidential campaign steeped in “racial resentment,” “divisive rhetoric,” and “racist comments.” Otherworldly, because these are precisely the elements that have been Hillary's stock-in-trade since the dawn of her political career. During her first presidential campaign eight years ago, Mrs. Clinton spoke at an event held by Al Sharpton's National Action Network, where she crowed about the “long and positive relationship” she had enjoyed with Sharpton and his organization.

    He's been a loud, inescapable and expensive adversary of the New York Police Department for years: the publicity-loving lawyer who got huge settlements, and headlines, in some of the city's most notorious brutality cases. Now Sanford Rubenstein is getting unwelcome attention as a potential rape suspect. --snip-- A member of Sharpton's National Action Network has accused the 70-year-old attorney of sexually assaulting her at his luxury apartment after Sharpton's 60th birthday party

    Thanksgiving week is typically a time for people to reflect on the blessings they have known and to be grateful for all of the bounty we receive in our lives, so we should kick off Monday morning with just such a story. One person who apparently has a lot to be grateful for is Al Sharpton. The nationally renowned race agitator arranged for some particularly rich blessings last year in the form of a 71% pay raise, made possible largely through the renewed, high profile image he obtained via multiple public appearances with President Barack Obama and New York City...

    It pays to have friends in high places. Al Sharpton gave himself a 71 percent raise last year after his National Action Network group drew a record $6.9 million in donations — as the controversial cleric’s association with Mayor de Blasio and President Obama lent him a newfound air of legitimacy. De Blasio’s election gave Sharpton a seat at City Hall, as the mayor treated him as an adviser and presented him at a press event next to Police Commissioner Bill Bratton after the death of Eric Garner. Also in 2014, Obama addressed NAN’s annual convention, bringing along five...

    An advocacy group run by the Rev. Al Sharpton is set to announce a reward for information leading to the arrest of the white man who opened fire inside a prayer meeting inside a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine people including its prominent pastor. The Harlem-based National Action Network is expected to announce an award for the gunman in the Wednesday night massacre at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, a landmark in the heart of the genteel southern city, as authorities continue to hunt for the suspect in what they’re calling a hate crime.

    Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape. Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a secretly recorded conversation by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas. One of O’Keefe’s investigators poses as a Garner supporter with a hidden camera during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.

    So far, every for-profit enterprise started by Al Sharpton and known to National Review Online has been shut down in at least one jurisdiction for failure to pay taxes, a review of public records in New York and Delaware reveals. Records show that Sharpton’s beleaguered for-profit entities often overlap and intertwine, some sharing ties with the reverend’s nonprofit organization, National Action Network. Their financial records are copious, confusing, and sometimes outright bizarre, and together, they depict persistent financial woes for Sharpton, who also personally owes New York State nearly $596,000, according to active tax warrants. “He clearly appears — based...

But “thanks to the Affordable Care Act,” she said, “7.8 million African-Americans with private insurance now have access to expanded preventative services with no cost sharing.” Ms. Burwell’s speech comes as HHS ramps up its efforts to insure people ahead of next month’s

A prescription for the sex pill Viagra was found in Rubenstein’s apartment — but it was issued in Sharpton’s name, a police source told the Daily News. A shocked Sharpton initially said he was unaware of a doc's note for the little blue pill that treats erectile dysfunction. “I don’t know anything about that,...

    Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist? Then you need to pay Al Sharpton. For more than a decade, corporations have shelled out thousands of dollars in donations and consulting fees to Sharpton’s National Action Network. What they get in return is the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence. Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal met with the activist preacher after leaked e-mails showed her making racially charged comments about President Obama. Pascal was under siege after a suspected North Korean cyber attack pressured the studio to...
