  • The Truth Of Black Lives Matter

    NY Times ^ | 9-4-15 | Editorial Board
    The Republican Party and its acolytes in the news media are trying to demonize the protest movement that has sprung up in response to the all-too-common police killings of unarmed African-Americans across the country. The intent of the campaign — evident in comments by politicians like Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky — is to cast the phrase “Black Lives Matter” as an inflammatory or even hateful anti-white expression that has no legitimate place in a civil rights campaign

    Did you listen to Jeb Bush make his announcement yesterday? Did you hear loud cheers from a crowd that seemed excited at the prospect that there could be another Bush as President? Was I the only one confused? I don’t know one person who doesn’t threaten to leave the Country if it’s Bush vs Clinton for President again. Can’t imagine folks actually excited and cheering for Jeb. It got me wondering, would someone like Jeb, or another candidate that’s been struggling like he has, hire a crowd? Pay people to attend their rallies to make them seem like their gaining...

    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...

    Last month’s protests in Baltimore are still fresh in the minds of Americans. They evoked images of similar, often violent demonstrations that took place last August in Ferguson, Missouri, after the police shooting death of Michael Brown. Well, there are still protests happening today in Ferguson – but they’re a little bit different. Here’s the first part of a statement released this week by the Millennial Activists United: “On May 14, 2015 many individuals and organizations of the protest movement that began in Ferguson, Missouri organized a sit-in in the office of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE).

    FULL TITLE: Green Billionaire Activist Tom Steyer Escalates His War On Science, Truth And Western Industrial Civilisation Billionaire activist Tom Steyer, a household name here at Breitbart, has created a “war room” targeting Republican political candidates who are sceptical of climate change. Aiming to swing the results in 2016, Steyer’s campaign will ‘put candidates in the hot seat for their climate denial’ and attempt to link the GOP to “Big Oil” and the Koch brothers wherever possible. Steyer said he would spend “what it takes” for this campaign rather than committing to a specific figure beforehand.

    The all-out street war in Ukraine’s capital city of Kiev between anti-government protesters and security forces had its beginnings in late November, when President Viktor Yanukovych rejected a bid for closer integration of his country with the European Union. Protests began peacefully, but reports that security services used excessive force on demonstrators escalated the situation. As of Wednesday, dozens of people have been killed, including protesters and police officers, and hundreds injured. For years Yanukovych promised Ukrainians that he would sign an agreement with the EU, which would benefit Ukraine’s economy substantially. Protesters felt betrayed that he suddenly and without...

    From the outside looking in, Occupy Wall Street's headquarters at Zuccotti Park may look like a clutter of tents and sleeping bags. But just a few blocks away, the so-called Trojan Horse of this well-organized movement is in plain sight. That's where the Occupy Wall Street supply room is located, a stockpile of food, clothing, and medical supplies housed in a former bank on the corner of Broadway and Exchange. "We get anywhere from 100 to 400 boxes a day," protester Saum Eskandandi told NBC New York as he led a tour of the supply room. "People have been sending...

    (CNN) -- Charlotte Bevins' long blond hair blows in the wind as she stands amid protesters, her eyes red and puffy from crying. Just four months ago, Bevins' brother, Charles, lost his life in a drilling accident in central New York. He was 23, a father of two small children. Gazing at the ground, Bevins tightens her grip on the handles of the baby stroller that cradles her young niece while hundreds of protesters lining the nearby streets wave signs and yell around her. No fracking way. No fracking way. No fracking way, the crowd chants. Bevins recently made the...

    Spot the Satanic Obama 2008 logo, again rearing its ugly head?? College students may well have an agenda I would say.Send your photos as well showing a revival of support for "The One" more so then celebrating a united AMERICAN MILITARY AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCY victory, more of a hoped-for conclusion on the WOT rather than a redoubled effort to proceed even further to get more Jehadi scalps (al-Awaki, al-Zawahiri), and fully support our US military and intelligence agencies first and foremost in the process.

    OAKLAND -- Two men arrested on suspicion of looting following a downtown rally after the verdict in the Oscar Grant slaying were ordered to pay $25,000 each to the owner of a jewelry store that was robbed, city officials announced Wednesday.

They were at the scene of a July 8 rally to protest the verdict of involuntary manslaughter returned against former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle, who shot and killed Grant on a train platform early of the morning of...

    Updated Thursday, March 10, 2011 3:46:18 a.m. After learning the state Senate passed the collective bargaining portion of the budget repair bill without the 14 missing Democrats, the Capitol erupted Wednesday evening as protesters flooded the closed building against a court order. The hearings where the Senate passed the bill lasted less than a half hour, prompting the building to officially close around 6:30 p.m. Protesters outside chanted in frustration, “Let us in.” ...DOA spokesperson Tim Donovan said law enforcement officers attempted to prevent forced entry from happening but were unable to because of the large volume of people. “We’re...
