    Dinesh D'Souza: 'The weapons of the state are used against political opponents' Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza contends American politics are at their most combustible since just before the Civil War, and he says President Trump must lead the effort to destroy “plantation politics” and end the practice of using the power of government to punish political enemies. D’Souza latest film, “Death of A Nation,” which opens Aug. 3, contends one of the greatest dangers Americans now face is the Democrats’ weaponization of government to exact political punishment on their enemies. He believes that’s the reason for the increased...

He concluded his address by encouraging people not to be passive, and to instead "go to the Hill today." "Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople," he said.

    Vice’s music site Noisey is reassuring readers, “You Don’t Have to Worship 2pac.” And I, for one, am relieved. I wasn’t wild about getting that “Thug Life” tattoo. It seems that “Recent criticism of the rap icon from Lil Xan and 03 Greedo forces us to ask whether or not our heroes are beyond reproach.” Heroes assuredly are not beyond reproach. Neither is Noisey’s definition of “hero.” It’s certainly not for me to judge Tupac Shakur’s music, but people who can tell the difference (and I’ll assume Lil Xan and 03 Greedo are among them) haven’t been uniformly impressed. According...

    --(snip) "There is even more to the story: CDC data also show that within our nation’s cities, black Americans are, on average, eight times more likely to be killed by firearms than those who are white. The rate of death by gun homicide for black people exceeds those among whites in all 50 states, but there is tremendous variation in the magnitude of this disparity. In 2015, a black person living in Wisconsin was 26 times more likely to be fatally shot than a white person in Wisconsin. At the same time, a black person in Arizona was “only” 3.2...

    A family of three was hospitalized Saturday after being attacked by an adult and eight teens at Six Flags Great America after members of the larger group apparently cut in line and were using foul language when the family exchanged words with them, according to Gurnee police.

    Rapper Young Thug was arrested in Georgia on Saturday for one count of marijuana possession and tinted front windows, a representative for the Brookhaven Police confirmed to Variety. The rep confirmed that the rapper — real name: Jeffrey Lamar Williams — is facing felony charges although he was unable to provide further details at press time. It seems likely the stiff charge is related to Thug’s 2015 arrest after a police raid on his home in Sandy Springs, Georgia, that saw him charged with felony marijuana and cocaine possession and three counts of felony gun possession.

    Sometimes, you don’t need a crystal ball to see the future. Sometimes, the future says, “Hey, I’m planning for all hell to break loose on this date.” And then you know. The future is telling us right now that on November 4th, there will be sedition and riots across the country to end the Trump-Pence “regime.” Today, groups of people with communist leanings who intend to overthrow the United States government will be meeting in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Austin for “regional conferences,” which makes it sound like they’re a bunch of dentists of something.

    Easter weekend was Chicago’s bloodiest since New Year’s, with 45 shootings, at least two of them fatal — a bad sign heading into the warmer months. The Windy City’s only consolation is that it’s doing better than last year: 915 shootings so far, vs. 955 in the same period in 2016. Homicides are also down, from 171 to 166. But the numbers are still higher than New York’s, though Chicago has about one-third the Big Apple’s population. And the NYPD continues to bring its own crime stats down, year after year — progress it’s continued to deliver (with occasional setbacks)...

Leroy Schumacher, the grandfather, said there was no reason his grandson had to die over the attempted robbery, reports KTUL. “What these three boys did was stupid,” Schumacher told KTUL. “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die.” Jacob Redfearn, his grandson, and two other teens, Maxwell Cook and Jake Woodruff , were fatally shot by Zach Peters when they tried to break into Peters’ home on March 27....
