The messages "Defend Kids Not Fascism" was written on one side of the base, and "NOLA is Preaux Migrant" was on the other. "Melt ICE," referencing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was sprayed on the front...

    In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Baltimore removed its four Confederate monuments, including statues of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson. This action followed this weekend's events in Charlottesville, Va., when white supremacists protested the removal of a Lee statue, and events this week, when protesters vandalized Confederate statues in Durham, N.C., Louisville, Ky., and Gainesville, Fla. Activists and government leaders are calling for more removals, while some counter protesters have organized to protect some monuments. Here is a brief summary of the monuments under attack — and those that aren't.

    Meet another stellar illegal and remnant of the Era of Obama. His name is Eric Cruz Lopez. Naturally, this criminal represents the “Dreamers.” These are the solid citizens Leftists say dream of life in America, living in peace and harmony. Oh, and voting Democrat. Our poster child for Leftist Dreamers received taxpayer funded welfare in the form of a college indoctrination from the University of Connecticut. Interestingly, this college-miseducated Dream finds himself in trouble. As Donald Trump said of many illegals, they enter America not to improve their lives, but to disrupt ours. Whether voting illegally to skew our elections...

The crosses represent the 113 unborn lives taken by abortion-on-demand each day in Illinois, said Chris Iverson, a local pro-life leader and adviser to the...

    It is supposed to be a utopian vision of peace and love but this year's Burning Man Festival has been marred by "hooligans" carrying out a "revolution against rich parasites". The festival plays out each year in Nevada's Black Rock Desert where 70,000 people build a city in a week, burn a giant wooden effigy of a man, and then restore the arid playa to its original state. In recent years it has become popular with Silicon Valley millionaires, and billionaires. Luxurious so-called "plug-n-play" camps have sprung up which use hired staff like cooks, builders and security, and allow international...
