    How many police officers have to die so a grad student in gender studies doesn’t have to get a real job?Follow the money is the watchword of politics. The left pretends that it is above money or against money, but its networks rival those of any drug cartel or mob outfit and are often constructed to thwart any investigation of its finances. These networks are strange reincarnations of Cold War era Communist front groups. Except that instead of the money coming from Soviet agents, the cash flows from left-wing billionaires and family foundations hijacked by the left to serve uglier...

    Tonight, a motley assortment of violent, radical left wing protesters supported by MoveOne.Org, forced the cancellation of a Donald Trump rally at the University of Illinois, Chicago Circle Campus in downtown Chicago. Over 25,000 Trump supporters were to attend the rally, which Mr. Trump cancelled based on security concerns from the Chicago Police and the Secret Service. Both the Chicago Police and the Secret Service feared a riot breaking out had Mr. Trump attended. In a continuation of a fearful trend among America’s youth, the protesters who were mainly University of Illinois college students demanded that Trump be prohibited from...

December 30, 2015 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. The dirty alliance between Obama and #BlackLivesMatter has torched cities, goosed crime rates, killed cops and suppressed law enforcement with the Ferguson Effect.

The refusal of a grand jury to indict the police officer in the...

    A Hennepin County judge on Tuesday dismissed charges against organizers of the massive Black Lives Matter protest at the Mall of America in Bloomington last Christmas season. The leaders of the protest, which drew more than 2,000 people to the mall on Dec. 20, had faced misdemeanor charges of aiding and abetting trespass, aiding and abetting unlawful assembly, and aiding and abetting disorderly conduct. In a 137-page decision, Chief Judge Peter Cahill dismissed all charges against the 11 organizers, while keeping in place trespass charges against 17 individual protesters.

    President Barack Obama endorsed the #Black Lives Matter movement “as something we have to take seriously.” Even though after seven years, Obama has done nothing to improve the lives of black Americans, his most loyal, boot-licking constituents. In contrast, Obama helped give homosexuals gay marriage and illegal aliens, amnesty. Blacks are poorer, more criminalized and uneducated than they were before the first black president was elected in 2008. Congressional Black Caucus Chairman G.K. Butterfield admitted as much, lamenting that in 2015 the black race finds itself in “a state of emergency.” Butterfield said: • 25% of black households live below the...

    Protesters gathered in Union Square Wednesday night to demand justice in the death of Freddie Gray, the man who died while in police custody in Baltimore. Several hundred people assembled as speakers addressed the crowd, with some people chanting 'Hands up, don't shoot'. Organizers say the rally is meant to show solidarity with people in Baltimore. "The game plan is to make sure people are politicized about the issues that are happening in terms of police brutality," said one organizer. "What's happening not only in communities in Baltimore, but in Brooklyn and Harlem and across the country." Police have barriers...

    Our city is hurting, we are hurting. Today we mourn the loss of two NYPD officers who were gunned down in a vicious act of senseless violence. As soon as news broke of the tragedy in Brooklyn, I spoke with both the families of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. And let me be perfectly clear, we are all outraged and saddened by the deaths of these police officers. Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehensible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases. At...

A video uploaded on YouTube Tuesday shows Gregory Lee Johnson, a veteran member of the Revolutionary Community Party, riling up a crowd and seemingly discouraging them from listening to police’s advice to calm things down.

Rodney King’s youngest brother, Zhan Paul King, on Monday said his family is dealing with the loss “the best that we can." He urged people to ignore rumors or innuendo and instead focus on his brother’s life of perseverance. “We appreciate all the support we’ve had over the years, and we’re going to need that support now," he said. The family still is making funeral arrangements, though nothing has been finalized, he said. Officials will not have a final...

    The Hill: Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that it's not enough for African-Americans to levy allegations of racism against the right-leaning protesters, and that the media must look into their views. "I want those people talked to; I want them interviewed," Waters told the liberal Bill Press Radio show in a podcast. "I want journalists to be all over those rallies and the marches with the birthers and the teabaggers."
  • Van Jones: On the 9/11 Attacks, Not Just a ‘Truther,’ a ‘Deserver’ (AmeriKKKa "deserved" attack!)

    The "resignation" shortly after midnight on Sunday morning of President Obama's "green jobs czar" Van Jones has generally been seen as a convenient holiday weekend move. By Friday, after White House Secretary Robert Gibbs would only say that he still was a part of the administration, it was obvious that Jones's resignation was only a matter of time. The 9/11 truther and other evidence accumulated by Glenn Beck, Gateway Pundit, and others was simply overwhelming. But it seems to me that it would have been more convenient had the White House waited until early Sunday afternoon to announce Jones's resignation....

    Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said that he is a supporter of Sarah Palin's apparent leadership of the Republican Party. "As a supporter of Sarah Palin for taking over the Republican Party, I’m one of her great advocates," said Conyers. "I mean, what an attractive, young, neoconservative reactionary! Wow! There’s never been one like her." “She attracts crowds. She’s going to write a book,” he said. “She’s so busy she can’t – she doesn’t have enough time to govern Alaska. ‘Hey, let’s get ready for the big one when we go back in and take on Obama.’ I want to encourage...

    RCP ^ | 8/6/2009 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Why does President Obama want to implement all at once radical changes in American foreign policy, environmental policy, education, health care and the tax code? The answer is easy: If he does not achieve these initiatives soon, he never will. Almost none of Obama's proposed policies any longer enjoy majority support among voters -- and many of them were not clearly outlined to voters during the campaign. Current polls show more Americans are against than in favor of his version of health-care reform. Nearly seven in 10 are wary of government takeovers of the economy, like the bank and car...

    FYI: The org "World Can't Wait" is an "anti-war" front for the Revolutionary Communist Party. The RCP, on their website, calls for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government. Former Abu Ghraib Brigadier General, Janis Karpinski, is listed as an "endorser" of the WCW movement on the World Can't Wait website. House Judiciary Committee chairman/Bush administration "torture investigators", democrat John Conyers Jr of Michigan, and HJC member, Maxine Waters, have also each given their endorsements to the Revolutionary Communist Party movement/organization, "World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Bush Regime" (they'll probably be dropping the "Drive Out the Bush Regime" portion of...

    Sunsara Taylor is a spokeswoman for the Revolutionary Communist Party. Of course that wasn't bought up by the idiots at Fox. The substitute host (I forget his name, he's a former congressman) only referred to her as a "peace" activist for the group "World Can't Wait". WCW is a front for the Revolutionary Communist Party. The program will probably repeat later if you want to see FoxSnooze, once again, blow an opportunity to expose the commie left. They've done it more times than I can remember. Check your local listings for schedule. From Taylor's own blog profile... "Sunsara Taylor is...
