    It’s increasingly difficult to tell the difference between Teach for America — whose leaders are at the forefront of inflammatory anti-police protests in Baltimore, Ferguson, and now McKinney, Texas — and left-wing activist groups such as Organizing for Action (President Obama’s partisan community organizing army). Guess what, taxpayers? You’re paying for it!

    Wow, we are seriously screwed up as a nation. How quickly everyone has forgotten the massive terrorist attack on 9/11 that took almost 3,000 lives. It touched all of us. And the guys behind it were evil Islamists, plain and simple. The primary motive behind the protest by the people in Phoenix yesterday was to show that free speech still matters in this country and we won’t be cowed or stripped of our rights by thugs, who wear religion as a cloak of justification. However, you wouldn’t know that by watching the media. Even Fox News called it an anti-Muslim...

    Earlier this month the anti-cop protests, which certainly contain a lot of genuinely upset people, took a bit of a blow to their collective reputation when the #CutTheCheck movement broke out on social media. It highlighted the fact that at least some of the protesters in Ferguson, Baltimore and other locales were not only bussed in, but were being paid for their social activism. Hired protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement have started a #CutTheCheck hashtag and held a sit-in at the offices for the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Missouri...

    Cleveland police were taking no chances in the wake of the acquittal of police officer Michael Brelo, going to great lengths to ensure that Saturday afternoon’s peaceful protests didn’t evolve into violent riots like Baltimore and Ferguson have experienced in recent months.In addition to having the National Guard on standby, police followed protesters through the streets and arrested anyone who acted violently or refused to obey police orders to disperse. 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 won’t 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 Obama’s 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,...

    For most Americans, including President Barack Obama, the term "thug" seemed an appropriate appellation for the rioters who destroyed businesses, homes and other property in Baltimore this week. Now liberals are crying foul. The Baltimore Sun has editorialized, "Having city leaders apply it to the high school students and others who rioted throughout Baltimore tells the offenders that they weren't just wrong in what they did, but that they're also worthless because of it -- something too many people already believe." Baltimore's mayor, after initially using the term, apologized on Twitter: "That night we saw misguided young people who need...

    A pack of unruly teenagers who went on a rampage in downtown Charleston early Sunday morning, attacking and injuring some people, illuminated a problem: Department spokesman Charles Francis said officers were dispatched to 11 calls about disturbances on the peninsula from around midnight to 2 a.m. Sunday. He said they didn’t take some reports until two days later because they needed to respond to other calls. One man who would not give his name for fear the group might retaliate, said he was struck twice in the face. But when a policeman responded to the call, after asking if the...

    EXCLUSIVE - An analysis of social media traffic in downtown Baltimore Monday has unearthed striking connections to the protests in Ferguson, Mo. last year, according to a leading data mining firm that shared its findings exclusively with Fox News. The firm, which asked to remain anonymous because of its government work, found between 20 and 50 social media accounts in Baltimore that were also tied to the peak period of violence in Ferguson. While further analysis is being conducted on the data, it suggests the presence of "professional protesters" or anarchists taking advantage of Freddie Gray's death to incite more...

She is then clearly physically attacked by the group.

    Tensions ran high over the weekend when anti-”amnesty” activists showed up to a Spanish-language town hall event featuring Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) and proceeded to shout him down. The event at the University of Southern California was billed as “Keeping Families Together: An Immigration Town Hall” featuring Gutiérrez and fellow Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), and was delivered in Spanish with the option for attendees to wear headphones for English translations. The event focused on President Barack Obama‘s recent executive action on immigration, and featured materials assisting undocumented immigrants with signing up deportation deferrals under the new policy.

And as is always the case when the mob-manufactured smoke clears, it is the good people of a predominantly black working class city who are stuck with the check. On top of everything else they have dealt with since the media chose to pour satellite-truckloads of gasoline on the Michael Brown Lie, Ferguson residents are now seeing their property values plummet almost by 50%.

    The protest slogans addressing our latest struggle for justice and equity compel me to come up with a new phrase. The signs and T-Shirts emblazoned with “I Can’t Breathe!” “No Justice, No Peace!” and the latest, “Black Lives Matter,” carry connotations related to action. I often wonder what the folks who wear the T-shirts and hold the signs are doing to back up the slogans they spout. More importantly, I wonder who makes the shirts and who sells them. With that in mind, my slogan for action — economic action is, “Black Dollars Matter!” The “I Can’t Breathe” shirts worn...

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has begun work on a legal memo recommending no civil rights charges against a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who killed an unarmed black teenager in August, law enforcement officials said. That would close the politically charged case in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the officials said. A broader civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open, however. That investigation...

    In watching the anti-police protests over the last month you may have found yourself wondering what it is, if anything, these people blocking traffic want. Chants of “No justice, no peace,” are meaningless platitudes progressives have been chanting since the 60s, and drum circles don’t exactly convey a coherent message of any sort. But underneath all the “Hey-heys” and the “Ho-hos,” there is an agenda – it’s convoluted, rings of fascism, is decidedly anti-police and is downright stupid, but it is there. As if chanting their desire for “dead cops” and actually celebrating that chant coming to fruition wasn’t bad...

    Beginning way back in 2002, we wrote about International A.N.S.W.E.R., a Communist organization that was founded in September 2001 and that organized substantial antiwar demonstrations during the Bush administration. A.N.S.W.E.R. embodied within itself the seeming contradiction between the far left and Islamic extremism: it enthusiastically supported both Kim il Jung and Saddam Hussein, and is directed in part by the Muslim Student Association. Our earliest posts on A.N.S.W.E.R. have been lost in our various database moves; the first one that survives is this brief post from January 2003. At one time I did some research to try to figure out...

    That would be the same media which kept insisting that the violent racist protesters were peaceful.But progressives like Obama and De Blasio seem to have an odd love/hate relationship with the media. The moment a negative note intrudes into the positive coverage, they lash out.

What you manage to do is pull up the few who do not represent the majority.”He called it “unfair,” and...

    Activist groups in New York City have rejected a call by Mayor Bill de Blasio to hold off on any new demonstrations until after the funerals of two NYPD officers who were ambushed and murdered Saturday in Brooklyn. [Snip] However, the Rev. Al Sharpton told Reuters late Monday that de Blasio's request was too "ill-defined" to heed. "Is a vigil a protest? Is a rally?" Sharpton asked. Another group, The Answer Coalition, said it would go ahead with a long-planned march Tuesday evening, and denounced the mayor for what it called an "outrageous" attempt to chill free speech. ...
