    Portland police responded quickly and decisively to a group of protesters blocking traffic in the city Wednesday, running one of them right into the ground in dramatic footage posted online. About a dozen police in riot gear approach the scene of the protest in the video posted to Facebook by a local outlet, where agitated bystanders had gathered around the protesters as they blocked traffic. One man had climbed onto the front of the bus. “Here they come,” one onlooker says excitedly.

    That sonic boom you may have thought you heard was just the sound of Democrat heads exploding in unison. It was followed by the caterwauling of angry feminists protesting against. . .well, whatever the hell it is they’re protesting against these days. They hate you. They really, really hate you. Half of the work Trump will be doing in the immediate future will involve him just being in the White House. The Democrats will do the heavy lifting with their militant protesting. They are daily exposing their true selves: a demented gang of militant radicals who would think nothing of...

    A federal appeals court on Tuesday shot down protesters’ challenge of regulations that allow Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration Committee first dibs on the location of bleachers along the Friday’s inaugural parade route. As a result of the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the inauguration committee can keep set-aside bleacher seats in place at both Freedom Plaza and in front of the Trump International Hotel - locations protesters had sought to demonstrate in during Friday’s parade. The decision is a blow to anti-war group Answer Coalition, which has challenged the National Park Services’ allocation of...

    ..Accidentally, of course. We’ve all seen the clips. A mob of protesters rioters shuffles down the center of a three-lane highway like a scene from The Walking Dead. They block traffic, delay safety and rescue vehicles, and generally cause havoc in the name of their cause du jour. Many have wondered “what happens if you just plow into them?” Well, usually what happens is you go to jail. However, in North Dakota, that may soon be a thing of the past. OK, not exactly. Before you go all David Carradine in Death Race 2000, you should know that purposely running...

    A group of millennial activists from across the country plan to open a “movement house” in Washington DC next month, which will serve as a permanent base to protest Donald Trump’s presidency. The organizers are mostly women of color, many of whom campaigned for Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary. The house, which will be set up by inauguration day on 20 January, has been dubbed “District 13”, in a reference to a rebellious neighborhood in the Hunger Games books and films. Activists told the Guardian that it will serve as a “space for the best kinds of troublemakers from...

He was a true capitalist that feared God, inspired faith, and was a titan of industry. He funded several of America’s great educational institutions and was a philanthropist beyond measure, but his endowment is now responsible for a program that will certify the next generation of Marxists.- Let that sink in.According to a recent Duke Chronicle article, “Duke has long been known internationally...

    Well, this is a new one: On Saturday, women in New York City staged a topless protest against Donald Trump. Barstool Sports reporter Kat Timpf was on the scene and took some rather interesting footage. Per Timpf, nobody seemed swayed by the presence of naked breasts to change their mind on Donald Trump. A woman at the protest lamented that full-blown nudity is illegal in New York City (going topless is not), and therefore couldn't show off her Hillary Clinton-themed pubic hair.

    Donald Trump isn't the only one with a flare for a putdown. As protests and condemnations of the president-elect continue to roil the country, Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said the country needs to toughen up on tender millennials. "We're just treating these adolescents and these millennials like precious snowflakes," Conway told Sean Hannity of Fox News on Wednesday night. Conway said she was brought up to "respect the office of the presidency and its current occupant and the flag, and that's it." As her candidate has, Conway went after "paid protesters" and politicians who want to "whine and cry"...
