  • How did Democrats get here

    Democrats have become the party of thuggery, from the top leaders abusing President Trump as a traitor and criminal, to the Antifa black shirts beating up Trump supporters in Democrat cities. The ginned up hysteria over Trump’s election has grown with Trump’s triumphant successes with the economy and national security. The Democrats’ motivation for the fake impeachment crisis is obvious—they have no platform and no candidate that gives them a path to the White House. What is less obvious is why three years of ugly, crude propaganda, threatened and actual violence, wearisome agitation and lies is playing so well to...

    <p>In audio first put online by right-wing pundit and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos on Saturday, white nationalist Richard Spencer can allegedly be heard ranting about Jewish people and mixed-race people.</p> <p>The audio — purportedly from an emergency meeting that took place on August 13, 2017, the day after the far-right “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, disintegrated into violence, resulting in the murder of a counterprotester named Heather Heyer — features Spencer screaming racist and anti-Semitic slurs he has generally avoided using in public in an effort to more politely argue for “the creation of a White Ethno-State.”</p>

    On Sept. 25, the Democrat-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a 3 ½ hour “hearing” entitled “Protecting America From Assault Weapons.” That framing of the issue underscored the erroneous notion that Americans need protection from inanimate objects, rather than from violent criminals who have and always will use any means at their disposal to harm innocent, defenseless people. It also revealed the unfortunate agenda of the proceedings, which was to emphasize politics and finger-pointing over any useful exploration of how Congress might take meaningful steps to improve public safety, The NRA-ILA reports. The most startling claim of the proceedings came...

    A Virginia state judge ruled Wednesday that statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson that were at the center of 2017 protests must remain standing in Charlottesville, Va. Circuit Judge Richard Moore ruled that Virginia state law prohibits moving war memorials and that moving the statues would break that law. Moore issued a permanent injunction preventing the statues from being moved at the beginning of a trial over a lawsuit brought against the city by groups that wanted to preserve the statues. People pressing for the statues to be moved argued it was wrong to celebrate generals who had...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The mother of a woman killed when a man rammed his car through a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is suing the convicted murderer for wrongful death. Susan Bro filed a $12 million lawsuit Aug. 30 against 22-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., who is now serving life sentences plus 419 years on numerous convictions. The Daily Progress reports Thursday that Bro said she doesn’t want Fields’ “blood money.” She just wants to make sure he can’t profit from selling the rights to his story or publishing a memoir.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he would not be seeking the presidency if it weren’t for the white supremacist violence that occurred in Charlottesville in August 2017 and President Donald Trump’s response to it. At a fundraiser in Richmond, about an hour east of Charlottesville, Biden said he had been prepared to re-enter private life after forgoing a run against Hillary Clinton in 2016. “I had not planned on running for the presidency,” Biden said. “And I mean that sincerely.” Biden said his calculation changed “when those folks came out of the fields carrying those torches, chanting...

On Friday, the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force raided Reardon’s house and seized a cache of weapons and ammunition, including dozens of round of ammo, multiple semi-automatic weapons, a gas mask and bulletproof armor. snip Police initially became aware of Reardon on July 11 when he posted a video on Instagram of a man shooting a semi-automatic rifle with sirens and screams in the background.

    Instead of helping President Trump unify the nation after the recent mass shootings, Democrats are once again peddling the Charlottesville hoax to further inflame America’s divisions.For two years now, liberals have been brazenly lying about the remarks President Trump made in response to the 2017 Charlottesville tragedy, touting their fabrication as the most convincing evidence available that the president is actually the “white nationalist” they’ve always claimed. Following the twin shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio — which they blame on Donald Trump — Democrats and the mainstream media have predictably trotted out the Charlottesville canard once again. As...

    The president of the United States, Donald Trump, never said there were "fine" Nazis or Ku Klux Klansmen. This is one of the two great lies of our time — the other being that all Trump supporters are racists — and perhaps in all of American history. I cannot think of a lie of such significance that was held as truth by so many Americans, by every leading politician of one of the two major political parties and disseminated by virtually the entire media. The major news media need to understand these are important reasons that half of America...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke peddled misleading statements about Donald Trump’s so-called “Muslim ban” and remarked the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia on CNN's “State of the Union."Host Jake Tapper failed to challenge Beto on his statements.Tapper started the segment by asking O’Rourke about his assessment a week ago, where he labeled the president a “white nationalist,” adding, “I just wonder, sir, President Trump won your home state of Texas by nine points, almost 63 million Americans voted for him, do you think it is racist to vote for President Trump in 2020?”

    White supremacists have committed at least 73 murders since the far-right rally two summers ago in Charlottesville, Virginia. That comes from a report released Thursday by the Anti-Defamation League that says 39 of the killings were “clearly motivated by hateful, racist ideology.” The violence of the Unite the Right rally has led to an increase in white supremacist activity, according to the report, which is titled “Two Years Ago, They Marched in Charlottesville. Where Are They Now?” “The violence on the streets of Charlottesville has kindled two major tracks of white supremacist activity,” the ADL said. “The first is the...

    Did President Trump call neo-Nazis “very fine people” during a famous press conference following the Charlottesville riots of August 2017? The major media reported that he did. But what if their reporting is wrong? Worse, what if their reporting is wrong and they know it’s wrong? A straight exploration of the facts should reveal the truth. That’s what CNN political analyst Steve Cortes does in this critically important video.

    Just got this email....(I try to keep up with the enemy)....Check out the last paragraph..... .............................. David, today, we are heartbroken. But it’s more than that -- At least 29 lives were stolen, families broken, communities shattered in El Paso and Dayton within 13 hours. Dozens more wounded. Between those two mass shootings, dozens more were killed and injured by gun violence that didn't make national headlines. First: Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines don’t belong on our streets. We must stand up to the NRA and gun manufacturers -- they don’t own this country. We the people own this country....
  • Charlottesville Mayor: Don't Worry, Jefferson Can Still Celebrate Birthday 'in Hell'

    Thomas Jefferson's birthday in mid-April is currently recognized as a city holiday in Charlottesville, VA. But if it was up to Mayor Nikuyah Walker, she'd change it to “Liberation and Freedom Day.” The alternative holiday, which she proposed at a city council meeting last month, would instead celebrate the emancipation of slaves in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Walker is one of several people advocating for the change because it's well known that Jefferson, the third president of the United States and drafter of the Constitution, was also a slave owner. Some citizens are up in arms over her suggestion, accusing...

James Alex Fields Jr., 22, received the sentence for killing one person and injuring dozens during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, 2017. Last month, Fields received a life sentence on 29 federal hate crime charge

    On Monday, the City Council of Charlottesville, Va., voted to replace the official paid holiday celebrating the birth of Thomas Jefferson with an official paid holiday celebrating slave liberation in the city. The city council revoked Jefferson's holiday during the week of July 4, the American holiday celebrating the Declaration of Independence, which Jefferson drafted. Charlottesville is indebted to Jefferson, and this decision seems a clear message of ingratitude. Late on Monday, councilors voted to remove April 13, Jefferson's birthday, from the city's holiday schedule, NBC 29 reported. Jefferson's birthday was the only holiday uniquely celebrated by the city. While...

    The city of Charlottesville will no longer celebrate Thomas Jefferson’s birthday as an official city holiday and instead will observe a day recognizing the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. The City Council voted Monday to scrap the April 13 holiday honoring the slave-holding Founding Father. Charlottesville will now mark Liberation and Freedom Day on March 3, the day U.S. Army forces arrived in the city in 1865. Charlottesville has been grappling with how to tell its history of race and discrimination. Those efforts intensified after white nationalists gathered in the city in 2017 for a rally that descended into deadly...

    A year ago, according to James S. Robbins, a Pentagon official during George W. Bush’s administration and author of the book “Erasing America,” quoted POTUS Donald Trump opining that the American Left would never be satisfied with simply pulling down Confederate monuments. No, the president said in 2017, Leftists would eventually adopt overt efforts to actually memory hole our founders, our traditions and our culture. “Is it George Washington next week” he said, “and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?” Noted Robbins: “Liberal historians tut-tutted at...
