    A Kansas man has admitted to the crime of threatening to rape and murder employees at a national pro-life organization. Christopher M. Thompson, 22, of Wichita, plead guilty on Monday to one count of threatening members of Operation Rescue in 2018. According to a statement by the Department of Justice’s U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Kansas, Thompson admitted to making three phone calls to Operation Rescue in one day that included threats against them. Sentencing for Thompson is scheduled for Oct. 15, according to the Justice Department. Thompson could receive up to 20 years in prison and a...

    An offer has been made to settle a legal dispute over an incident at a York County golf course that made national headlines. But that offer isn’t likely to settle anything any time soon. When police were called about five black women playing at the Grandview Golf Course on April 21, 2018, the complaint alleged against them was that they were playing too slowly. This claim, refuted by other golfers playing behind the women, did not result in any charged being filed. The group of women then filed a lawsuit in response, alleging that the call to police was due...
  • 'Men in Black: International' has the worst opening ever for the franchise with just $28.5 million

    Studios are learning this summer that audiences have no time for their tired franchises. This weekend it's Sony that's taking the lumps as "Men in Black: International," the first "MIB" movie in seven years, opened with a franchise-low $28.5 million at the domestic box office. The first "Men in Black" in 1997 previously had the lowest opening with $51 million, but back then that was really good. In fact, if you count inflation, that would be a $100 million opening today. The $28.5 million performance, though number one at the domestic box office for the weekend, is below Sony's $30...

    The story of five black women who were asked to leave a York County golf course for reportedly playing too slowly is making headlines and causing outrage across the country. The group of regular golfers said they were confronted at the second hole by Steve Chronister, one of the owners of the Grandview Golf Course and a former county commissioner, who accused them of lagging and offered to refund their money if they would leave. They were the only African Americans or all-female groups on the course in Dover Township, according to Sandra Thompson, who posted a detailed account of...

    Kansas Democrats hoping to turn voter discontent into an upset picked civil rights attorney Jim Thompson to run for the U.S. House seat that Mike Pompeo vacated to become CIA director under President Donald Trump. Thompson, a 46-year-old political newcomer and Army veteran, will run against Republican state Treasurer Ron Estes in the April 11 special election. It will be the nation’s first special congressional election since Trump’s win, and Democrats view it as their best chance to flip the seat representing the heavily Republican 4th District in southern Kansas. After winning the Democratic nomination, Thompson, told delegates that the...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A legal battle has erupted over the estate of former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson. That legal battle comes in the former of a lawsuit filed late Tuesday by Thompson's two adult sons -- nine months after the death of the actor turned politician. In the complaint, sons Tony and Dan Thompson question a flurry of changes to their father's estate in the days before his death back in November.

    Mary Matalin, former counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney, is joining likely presidential candidate Fred Thompson’s team and will serve as an unpaid adviser. Matalin, who served as treasurer for Sen. George Allen’s unsuccessful re-election campaign last year, is a friend of Thompson and his wife Jeri, Politico.com reports. Also joining the Thompson team is Lawrence Lindsey, President George Bush’s first economic adviser and a proponent of his tax cuts. He will serve as chief architect of Thompson’s economic policy. Meanwhile, President Bush’s nephew George P. Bush – son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – has contributed to Thompson’s...

    **SNIP** The British couple is hoping to launch a protest movement in the aftermath of a recent tax scandal in the UK, during which it was alleged staff at the Swiss arm of the bank HSBC helped clients avoid hefty bills in Britain. Thompson and Wise hope a mass tax boycott will convince bosses at Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), the government department responsible for collecting the money, to penalise wealthy citizens and companies who avoid paying their fair share. Wise tells London's Evening Standard newspaper, "I want to stop paying tax, until everyone pays tax... I have actively...

    I was irritatingly reminded, once again, of just how degenerate our nation has become. I read recently that a football player for the Miami Dolphins, Don Jones, was fined and castigated for voicing his revulsion at the sight of a fellow teammate, Michael Sam, in a lustful display of homosexual eroticism. Which, by the way, has nothing to do with "love." Michael Sam is the latest black pawn of the homosexual movement. As a black person, I can relate to a factor that I think has bearing, at least in part, on Mr. Jones' revulsion. Not only was this erotic...

    NEW CASTLE, Ind. - A New Castle man faces charges in federal court for allegedly threatening to kill a United States congressman over his vote on an unemployment extension. According to a criminal complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney's office on Friday, Brandon J. Thompson, 32, of New Castle, is accused of making several threats via e-mail and phone between the period of March 1 and May 6. On March 31, FBI agents allege that Thompson sent a message to the office of Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) stating: WELL YOU DRUNK JOHN BIN LADEN ITS TIME TO TAKE YOU OUT...

    Calling his opinion legitimate and not racist because he is "black," Democrat Representative from Mississippi Bennie Thompson blasted Justice Clarence Thomas as an "Uncle Tom" during an appearance on a New Nation of Islam radio program. During a wide-ranging interview in which Thompson made numerous racially charged and ignorant comments, the Congressman also stated that people who do not support ObamaCare only do so because of their hatred for President Obama's race. Later, when talking about a recent Supreme Court decision in which the voters of Michigan were allowed to decide whether colleges could consider race when accepting students, the...

    “This is probably why Harry Reid’s been going after the Kochs so much,” muses Instapundit’s Glenn Reynolds as he delivers news of top Democrat money man Jeffrey Thompson’s guilty plea for campaign finance violations. It sure does sound like a gigantic case of projection, which has always been a major component of Democrat psychology – they love to cast their own sins at their enemies. If you don’t spend any time in the left-wing fever swamps, you might be surprised at how large the demonic Koch Brothers loom in their mythology, and probably thought it was a bit odd for...

    The Chief Deputy of Forsyth County, North Carolina, came up with a smart move to save the taxpayers money: Trade two vintage 1928 Thompson submachine guns with drum magazines for 88 Bushmaster AR-15 type rifles, even up, about a $60,000 dollar value.   The Sheriff's department was smart enough to register the guns in 1968, during the amnesty that was allowed for one month.  Most people did not even know that the amnesty period existed.  Thus, these two Thompsons are legal to be sold to private citizens, and are worth over $30,000 each.   It is far past time that another...

    As the Left foams at the mouth over Phil Robertson, the Christian man who described Almighty God's take on homosexuality and other gross sins, their fear is becoming more and more apparent. They seem gradually to be realizing that they are a pernicious minority that only thrives because they are bolstered by Obama's morally corrupt federal government; intellectually lightweight media, devoid of principles; and interestingly, a general decency of American people influenced by the nation's Judeo-Christian roots. The masses, however, are becoming increasingly fed up with the Left's imposition of a twisted worldview that does not comport with anything resembling...

    The most galling of the lies for me, a black person, is the equally ridiculous notion that homosexuality is comparable to being genetically black. Activists envision that their push to force their behavior upon society is no different from the civil rights movement for American blacks. I cannot begin to describe the disgust that this position engenders in me, and many other blacks, because being black is not a behavior. Blacks who oppose this lie know that it is simply one of the Left's many political agendas aimed at the destruction of civil society. So, this is my prediction. As...

    A reader of one of my articles expressed the view that if we could only rid the world of the killing of the unborn (abortion), much of the surrounding evil would fall. He thinks that the devastating consequences of the homosexual agenda and other agendas like it would be eliminated, as a result of the cleansing effect the removal of abortion would have on the world. I agree fully with that reader's stance toward abortion, but the legal push to force an acceptance of sexual perversion upon an unreceptive nation is somewhat different from permitting killing of the unborn. Abortion...
