    "NEW EMAIL shows adviser telling Hillary to CREATE PALESTINIAN UNREST in order to pressure Israel!!" The Free Beacon caught a pretty remarkable email that went to Hillary and recommended that she spark fake protests among Palestinians in order to pressure Israel: Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton considered a secret plan created by her then-advisers to foment unrest among Palestinian citizens and spark protests in order to push the Israeli government back to the negotiating table, according to emails released as part of the investigation into the Democratic presidential frontrunner’s private email server. In a Dec, 18, 2011, email, former...
  • New York Magazine’s Chait ‘Votes’ For Oregon Militia Members To Be ‘Killed’

    Don’t confuse this as a defense of the Bundy family or their team of armed militia members who have occupied an abandoned building located on a federal wildlife preserve in Oregon. Any rational-thinking American should be horrified at the amount of land the federal government has confiscated, especially in the American West, but once you use or threaten violence to further a cause, you have lost me. Their cause is just. Their methods are appalling and un-American. Also un-American is Jonathan Chait of New York Magazine openly hoping these militia men end up dead.

    While the video release of a Chicago police officer's shooting of Laquan McDonald prompted a domino effect of change, including the ousting of the police superintendent and a federal civil rights investigation, the department finished 2015 on an ironic note: Officers shot the fewest people that they have in years. Chicago police officers shot 22 people in 2015, eight of them fatally. That's a 40 percent drop in the total number of people shot compared with 2014, when 37 people were hit by police gunfire and 16 of them were killed, according to department figures.

Organizers in Chicago are hoping the Christmas Eve demonstration will be a repeat of another Michigan Avenue demonstration in which a few hundred people disrupted shopping there on Black Friday. A group calling itself The Coalition for a New Chicago says the march will begin a noon at the south end of the Magnificent Mile shopping district and move north. The area is one of the largest...

    Black Lives Matter spread its Christmas cheer in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon–one of the busiest travel days of the year-with what it dubbed a "Black XMas" by briefly shutting down the southbound 405 Freeway in Westchester. The move was part of what activists called "a national day of action" and a national effort to shut down business as usual across America, from shopping malls to airports. "The message continues to be: There will not be business as usual as long as black lives continue to not matter," Activist Pete White told the Los Angeles Times. The southbound freeway lanes...

He led the crowd in several chants and referred several times to protesters' plans to rally at the Mall of America on Wednesday. Dozens of people were charged, but charges against the protest's 11 organizers have been dismissed.

    The University of Vermont recently held a retreat exclusively for Caucasian students so they could explore white privilege. "Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White," was the name of the three-day conference, as first reported by the website Campus Reform. It's a bit wordy for a t-shirt, in my humble opinion. They should've just called it "Blame the White Guy 2015." As we all know the only way to build a stronger and inclusive university campus is to shame the white children into acknowledging they are personally responsible for every imaginable evil that has befallen...

The new demands, released by a group calling itself Next Yale, were read aloud to Yale president Peter Salovey Thursday night by protesters who marched to his front door at midnight. The group says the demands are necessary to “reduce the intolerable racism that students of color experience on campus every day.” Salovey is given until Nov....

A total of 71 people were arrested, including one journalist who left his press pass at home.The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported: “We only moved into make arrests when things...

    CLEVELAND Cleveland police made 71 arrests Saturday during protests against the Michael Brelo verdict, Police Chief Calvin Williams said Sunday. Authorities attempted to give demonstrators the space to exercise their First Amendment rights, but they had no choice but to make arrests when the protests became violent or when protesters refused to disperse, he said. Police arrested demonstrators in downtown Cleveland on Saturday night following the acquittal of a police officer who stood trial in the 2012 shooting deaths of two unarmed people. CNN video showed police in riot gear moving down East Fourth Street, a strip of restaurants,...

    This could have been one of the biggest weeks for immigrant rights in modern history, opening up sweeping deportation relief and extending a temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants nationwide. Instead, they will have to continue waiting but it wont be quietly. Rallies are scheduled across the country on Tuesday as advocacy groups protest what would have marked the unofficial kick-off date to President Obamas second and most sweeping executive action program on immigration. Known as DAPA, the executive measure would have benefited as many as 3.7 million undocumented immigrant adults who have children born...

    "Peaceful protest turns violent," read the San Francisco Chronicle headline about the May 1 protest in Oakland that ended badly. Police arrested about a dozen people after activists trashed new cars and smashed bank windows. I love that headline. It makes it seem as if it's an anomaly when an Oakland protest ends with errant sparks and glass shards -- even though a social-justice demonstration in Oakland has a better chance of ending with vandalism than a Hollywood marriage has in ending in divorce. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf had warned that violence would not be tolerated, but to no effect....

    NEW YORK (AP) In a deeply personal response to outbreaks of racially motivated protests, President Barack Obama on Monday blamed a lack of opportunity in minority communities and harsher treatment of black and Hispanic men by police for fueling a sense of "unfairness and powerlessness." The country's first black president called for a nationwide mobilization to reverse inequalities and said the cause will remain a mission for the rest of his presidency and his life. "There are consequences to indifference," Obama said. Helping launch a foundation to assist young minorities, Obama said the catalysts of protests in Ferguson, Missouri,...
