    { Full Title } Masked Protesters Hurl Feces At New LA Kosher Coffee Shop During Grand Opening Event — Because Owner Supports Trump Residents of a rapidly gentrifying enclave of Los Angeles tried to shut down the grand opening of a new coffee shop, saying the owner’s support of President Donald Trump’s stance on immigrants is reason alone to want him out of the neighborhood. On Thursday, protesters held signs and screamed at patrons in front of Asher Caffe & Lounge located at 945 S. Boyle Ave. in Boyle Heights, a traditionally Jewish neighborhood that is now predominately Latino. They...

    Baton Rouge prosecutors have ruled out criminal charges against several people who are suing over their arrests at protests after a deadly 2016 police shooting in Louisiana's capital. A court filing shows the district attorney's office notified plaintiff's attorneys on Wednesday that it won't prosecute five protesters and two journalists who were arrested on misdemeanor charges. They were among nearly 200 people arrested

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell showered his wife, Elaine Chao, with praise Thursday night, over her confrontation with protesters who wanted the Kentucky Republican to answer for immigrant children being separated from their parents at the U.S. southern border. Chao, who serves as transportation secretary, told the demonstrators to “leave my husband alone” as the couple departed an event at Georgetown University on Wednesday evening. McConnell explained he told his wife to hop into the waiting car, but Chao leapt into action....
  • Claim: ‘Red Hen’ Owner Followed Sarah Sanders’ Family to Another Restaurant, Kept Heckling Them

    Gov. Mike Huckabee said Monday on the Laura Ingraham Show that even after Red Hen restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson threw his daughter Sarah Sanders out because she worked for President Donald Trump, she also stoked a protest at a nearby business where some of Sanders’ party had relocated. Sanders, Trump’s press secretary, wrote on Twitter about the incident. “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat...

    Protesters confronted Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi as she was leaving a screening of a new Fred Rogers documentary Friday night. Bondi was exiting a Won’t You Be My Neighbor? screening and being escorted out by police when a protester called her out on healthcare and followed her out the door. “What would Mr. Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” activist Maria José Chapa, a labor organizer, yelled, according to the Tampa Bay Times. “Shame on you!”

    Former Diablo Valley College professor Eric Clanton may face 11 years in prison for allegedly busting a Trump supporter’s head with a bike lock, according to an interview he did with Rolling Stone entitled “Antifa on Trial: How a College Professor Joined the Left’s Radical Ranks.”I love how this headline suggests that it’s UNUSUAL for professors to be part of the radical left; perhaps this author needs to tune in to Campus Unmasked. But I guess if you define “radical” to include only outright violence and not anti-white and and anti-Israel curriculum, readings from the Marxist Frankfurt School, etc., you...

    Mark my words ... If the left ever gets another foothold in our land (and I believe they may) we will NEVER see our liberties or safety ever again On the peaceful drive home from Santa Fe, going the back way up through the San Luis Valley to Colorado Springs, I caught an AM radio program that was wafting in and out from some town in the southwestern United States. The sun was setting. I was alone on the highway. And the saged prairies dotted with dark juniper cedar trees were rolling by in front of high mountains covered in...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | March 10, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    By Philip Cottraux In George Orwell’s 1984, all freedom is a thing of the past and the world is run by an authoritarian government known as Big Brother. People live under misery and oppression, every move they make being watched carefully by the sinister party, INGSOC. Every room of every home is equipped with a telescreen that monitor’s one’s every move, the slogan “Big Brother Is Watching You” playing over and over again. Even showing a facial expression of slight disinterest over one of the Party’s big announcements can cause one to be arrested for suspicion of “thought crimes.” Our...

    The protests that have rattled Iran this weekend are in many ways an echo of the near past. In the summer of 2009, millions of Iranians took to the streets to protest the reelection of President Ahmadinejad. The opposition believed his reelection victory was fraudulent. They chanted slogans demanding a recount of the votes. Others denounced the regime and its highest authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Hardliners and security forces confronted the crowds with anti-riot gear and harsh condemnation, often labeling them agents of foreign powers. It was a huge moment and seemed, at the time, to portend an irreversible...

    There’s a common quote, frequently attributed to G.K. Chesterton: “Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason why it was put up.” In our modern context, this should be rephrased a bit: “Don’t try to pull down a statue if you have no idea who or what the statue was really about.” During a 2016 Columbus Day protest conducted by Wunk Sheek, a Native American student organization, activists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus hosted a “die-in” at Bascom Hall, near a statue of President Abraham Lincoln.  According to The Daily Cardinal, a campus newspaper, the protest...

    OK, the headline’s a little misleading in that it appears some women will always feel compelled to dress as vaginas while protesting, while the more demure will settle for the Women’s March pussy hat. So it’s actually kind of refreshing to see people dressed as dinosaurs marching on Washington for a change.

    Seconds after President Trump’s Monday remarks finally calling out the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists by name, CNN hosts and panelists made clear that there was nothing Trump could have said that would have satisfied them, excoriating him for not going far enough and announcing “policy in terms of addressing this.” Inside Politics aired during and immediately after the President’s statement and Bloomberg’s Margaret Talev got the first crack, slamming Trump for not doing “outreach to people not white or who might feel that they were on the victimized end of the message that the protesters were carrying.”Never Satisfied: CNN...

    The First Amendment right to protest the government ends when you use a bolt cutter to breach a security fence and enter a restricted area, a federal judge told six people he found guilty Wednesday for their actions during a chaotic protest outside last summer’s Democratic National Convention in South Philadelphia. “A fence is a fence is a fence,” Senior U.S. District Judge Michael J. Baylson told the six out-of-towners after finding each guilty of trespassing on restricted federal grounds, a misdemeanor. “As a matter of common sense,” said the judge, “when an adult sees a fence, it is clear...
