    If the NFL thinks its new rule designed to quell player protests will end its national anthem controversy, it may want to think again. With less than three weeks to go until the start of preseason, Tennessee Titans star defensive end Jurrell Casey told CNN Sport on Wednesday in an exclusive interview he will remain on the field and protest during the US national anthem, while accepting any fines levied on him this season.
  • More Ocasio-Cortez: Low Unemployment Rate Is Because More People Have Two Jobs, You Know

    Jazz earlier described Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a gift to the GOP, but perhaps more accurately, she’s a gift that keeps on giving. So too for that matter is her appearance with Margaret Hoover on PBS’ Firing Line this weekend. Not only did she fumble an answer on the “Palestinian occupation,” Ocasio-Cortez managed to err completely on a basic economic question — despite her supposed expertise in the subject: Socialist Ocasio-Cortez confronted with booming economy & low unemployment numbers. She says "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs” and "Capitalism has not always existed in the world and...

    Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. Hes about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named Brett. In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from...

    Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton implied that the potential confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would bring the United States back to the times of slavery during a speech on Friday. I used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now, I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s. These will be urgent fights. Stakes could not be higher, she said during her speech at the American Federation of Teachers. This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, womens rights, including...

    On Wednesdays edition of New Day, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman spent a large amount of the program analyzing the ongoing NATO summit. Some of the coverage descended into silliness and absurdity, including two moments when Berman carefully dissected Chief of Staff John Kellys hydration habits. In the first hour, Berman brought up Kellys demeanor in a clip where President Trump was criticizing Germany for its energy dependence on Russia. In the clip, Kelly takes a sip of water, adjusts himself in is seat, and scratches his ear. According to Berman and CNN Senior Political Analyst, John Avlon, this...
  • Journalists Spread Conspiracy Theory That DHS Document Contains Secret Nazi Code

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 29 June 2018 | Alex Griswold
    A number of liberal Twitter users and journalists spread a conspiracy theory Thursday insisting a Department of Homeland Security document contained a secret Nazi code. In February, DHS put out a press release entitled "We Must Secure The Border And Build The Wall To Make America Safe Again," a fact-sheet making the case for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. "When it comes to stopping drugs and illegal aliens across our borders, border walls have proven to be extremely effective," it argued. The press release went largely unnoticed until months later, when a tweet accusing the document of being a...

    Short video at link. CNNs Jim Acosta shouted a question at President Trump Friday about his treatment of the press, asking if he would stop calling the press the enemy of the people. While at an event marking six months of the GOP tax law, Trump spoke about Thursdays shooting at a newsroom, saying the incident shocked the conscience of our nation. This attack shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief, Trump said. Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job. He went on to...

    If progressives hate Donald Trump so much, why are they trying so hard to get him re-elected? They may believe, with justification, that Donald Trump is vulgar and mean-spirited. They may think he acts more like a bully in middle school than a president. They may be convinced, based on the evidence before them, that he's impulsive and dishonest. But he's not a Nazi, no matter how many times they say he is. And he's not Adolf Hitler, despite what their fevered imagination keeps telling them. Now we have not some anonymous leftist at a street rally but a former...

    The Chicago Dyke March, an LGBT pride parade, prominently featured Palestinian flags one year after ejecting marchers waving Jewish flags. Participants in Sundays march can be seen waving Palestinian flags in a video posted by the Windy City Times, a newspaper serving Chicagos LGBT community. Marchers also waved Mexican, Puerto Rican and rainbow flags, and chanted No pride in occupation, no pride in deportation, according to the newspaper. The march this year was explicitly a very pro-Palestinian event, according to the Windy City Times. Last year, three women were ejected from the Dyke March for waving rainbow flags emblazoned with...

    Fox News host Juan Williams was shredded when he could not bring himself to denounce Peter Fondas vulgar attack on President Trumps young son, calling the tweets poorly worded instead. Williams downplayed the tweets by the Academy Award-nominated actor and filmmaker despite the fact that his threats prompted first lady Melania Trump to alert the Secret Service. Fox News Gregg Gutfeld assumed Williams would feel simarily about Fondas disgusting rant, but his response caused a major backlash from The Five co-hosts on Wednesday. In a series of tweets posted Wednesday, Fonda called for Barron Trump to be placed in a...

    Actor George Takei argued that "in one core, horrifying way," the family separations occurring at the United States' southern border are "worse" than the Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. "At least during the internment, when I was just 5 years old, I was not taken from my parents," he wrote in an op-ed for Foreign Policy magazine that was published Tuesday. Takei, an American citizen of Japanese ancestry who was detained with his family at camps in Arkansas and California, wrote that there was a "hideous irony" in the comparison. "At least during the internment, my parents were...

    On Sunday, a day we as a nation set aside to honor fathers and the bonds of family, I was among the millions of Americans who watched images of children who have been torn from their parents. In the six weeks between April 19 and May 31, the Department of Homeland Security has sent nearly 2,000 children to mass detention centers or foster care. More than 100 of these children are younger than 4 years old. The reason for these separations is a zero-tolerance policy for their parents, who are accused of illegally crossing our borders. I live in a...

"I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has some a grip on President Trump," Peters said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. "And, Anderson, when I first learned of the Steele dossier, it just rang true to me, because thats how the Russians do things. And before he became a candidate or president, Donald Trump was the perfect target for Russian intelligence." "Here is someone who has no self-control, a...

April 27, 2018 Daniel Greenfield aniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. A funny thing happened to the #MeToo movement in the Democrat Party. While #MeToo burned a fiery trail through the media, leaving behind the wrecked careers of top talent, after suffering some initial losses, the Democrats built a firewall by ruthlessly targeting activists. Their approach was eerily similar to that of Harvey Weinstein....

    A group of high schoolers isn't letting the March for Our Lives end after just one day.

    Today, students from around the country will converge on Washington D.C. and other locations for the March for Our Lives rallies. The organizers are survivors of the horrific February 14th shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that resulted in the deaths of 17 people, both students and faculty members. These rallies will receive massive media attention, which is in stark contrast to the press blackout that is given to the tens of thousands of students who visit our Nations Capital every year for the March for Life rally. The reason for this double standard is obvious....

    The high-school-student-organized March for Our Lives this weekend has put politicians in an unusual spot: the back seat. Although students are the driving force behind the D.C. march and sister marches around the country, elected officials and candidates from the District, Maryland and Virginia are finding ways to participate chartering bus loads of constituents, speaking at pre-march rallies and simply planing to be in the crowd. D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) is leading a contingent of D.C. students, joined by most members of the D.C. Council and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D). They will meet at Folger Park...

A junior at Midwood High School in Brooklyn, New York some 1,200 miles away from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, the Florida high school where a gunman murdered 17 students and faculty on Feb. 14 Giancola immediately thought the tragedy could have easily happened at her own school. It really hit home because Im in high school. That could have been my school, that could have been my friends, that could have been me that was shot or running away, Giancola told Fox News. So...
