    Is this the rioter’s goal? The Daily Caller posted the following video on Tuesday. It depicts hundreds or even thousands of whites sitting or kneeling with their hands before a black leader and repeating everything she says in unison. This event took place at the Connie Morella Library in Bethesda, Maryland. Leader: “…About racism, anti-blackness or violence.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “I will use my voice in the most uplifting way possible.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “And do everything in my power to educate my community.” Crowd repeats in unison. Leader: “I will love my black neighbors the...

    Racial politics in America are a simmering pot waiting to boil over, they have been for decades. This is only exacerbated as the poverty created by the (totally unnecessary) lockdown starts to hit home. As the weather gets hot, and jobs dry up and prices skyrocket and the small businesses close…people will get tense. They will get angry. This is dry tinder which can burst into flames at any moment. All it took was a spark. Now the protesters swarm cities all across America, as windows are smashed, shops looted and public buildings set afire. Civilians are being maced and...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 3, 2020 | Staff
    Voters are more critical of the police response to the latest outburst of black protest nationwide but also tend to agree with President Trump that the so-called “antifa” movement thought to be behind much of the violence should be labeled as terrorists. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters think the “antifa" movement should be designated a terrorist organization. Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 22% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)...

    The absentee Mayor has worn out his welcome in NYC. Crowds are now officially calling for him to get out of Dodge. DeBlasio resign It hasn’t been a good week for Bill DeBlasio. They probably liked him better back in May 2019 when he was too busy deluding himself that he could be President to show up for work as Mayor. He did less harm then. DeBlasio hasn’t exactly been covering himself in glory, lately. He’s still stinging from his terrible management of the Wuhan Coronavirus health crisis in NYC. (He and Cuomo both have much to answer for...

    ...Antifa has never had to hide in Seattle, Portland or the rest of the West Coast. When the news media is forced to mention them at all, they obligingly call them “anti-fascists”, which, this week, useful idiots have been touting on Twitter as proof that being against Antifa means one is for fascism, to which I have replied, “why are you against ‘Making America Great Again?” Antifa loves guns, they have a militia arm and they have practiced seizing civilian infrastructure, part of Phase Two on Mao’s rules for Insurgencies In notoriously anti-Second Amendment Seattle, Antifa open-carried. They commandeered a...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    So many items of WINNING news today it’s hard to know where to start. How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it’s a big negative number, it’s still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But – and it’s a big BUT – the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more...

    VIDEO The 2018 Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein testified today in the Senate against the 2020 former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein over accepting responsibility for signing FISA applications. As you can see the sparks flew due to the 2018 Rod Rosenstein castigating the 2020 Rod Rosenstein on this issue.

    Rod Rosenstein is currently testifying before the Senate and it’s not going well. While there will no doubt be a lot more to come out as the day unfolds, there’s already been some highlights that are worth hitting. For example, Rosenstein is admitting that he had no evidence by which to start the Mueller investigation. Jonathan Turley @JonathanTurley · 3h Replying to @JonathanTurley Rosenstein just said he did not know that investigators by the early January 2017 asked for Flynn to be removed from the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. He signed off on these warrants and applications but was never informed...

    The hypocrisy of mega-rich celebrities calling for reparations for slavery is astonishing. Black Entertainment Television Founder Robert Johnson, as summarized by CNBC, said that the “U.S. government should provide $14 trillion of reparations for slavery to help reduce racial inequality.” He’s currently worth an estimated $550 million.

    The party affiliation of U.S. big city mayors tells an interesting story. The list can be viewed on wikipedia if you google "U.S. mayors 50 biggest cities" ... unlike metropolitan area populations, this list goes strictly by the populations within the cities. Democrats are mayors in 35 of these cities, Republicans in thirteen and independents in two. Rather than listing all the cities run by Democrats, it is all but these: Republicans are mayors in San Diego, Jacksonville, Fort Worth, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Fresno, Mesa, Colorado Springs, Omaha, Miami, Tulsa, Virginia Beach and Arlington TX. Independents are mayors of...

The media, Hollywood, politics, science - everything is fair game as a weapon in the ideological war between the left and right. Weaponized Zombie with extra ammo…just in case. Therefore nearly everyone is aware that the left has weaponized race, gender, income, food, medicine, viruses, etc. in order...

    Unlike with the reopen marches, where journalists gave us up to the minute “reports” on how protesters were not social distancing and/or not wearing masks, we have not been hearing the same “you’re gonna kill people, you selfish jerk!” lectures from Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media regarding those marching over the officer-involved death of George Floyd. Pharmacist Matt Dawson became so disgusted and frustrated over the hypocrisy and mixed messaging that he went on an epic rant on his Twitter feed Monday, calling out the inconsistencies of Democratic leaders and media figures who just a few days...

    Let’s revisit one of the Campaign Update’s recurring themes, which is that the corrupt national news media establishment, like the Democrat Party, represents a true existential threat to our country’s survival in its current form. If we cannot find some means of holding these disloyal and destructive media outlets accountable for their systemic and pernicious false reporting, and do it soon, then the United States will descend into chaos and possibly a second Civil War. Mollie Hemingway put it bluntly in a tweet yesterday: Mollie ✔ @MZHemingway The disconnect between reality and media coverage is disorienting, angering, terrifying. 46.8K 7:57...

    In case you’re wondering why Texas Governor Greg Abbott, in a press conference yesterday with the police chiefs and mayors of Fort Worth and Dallas, said that he would not be asking for military assistance from the federal government to quell any out-of-control demonstrations in our state, all you need to see is this photo taken last night in the halls of the Texas Capitol Building by Glenn DeShields: Image may contain: indoor Those are Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, sleeping on the marble floors. I have walked those floors many times. They are 100% firm – they don’t...

    Anybody else seeing all of the SJW/virtue signaling commercials and banners on their TV on all shows, news, etc? It's just so saccharine how much they are pandering to the element of society that is systematically trying to bring down our nation. There is no attempt to disguise the agenda here, it is just overt as can be. Newcasters interview protesters saying they want and expect charges filed on all 4 police officers in the George Floyd "Murder" and they want 4 convictions - no sense of irony in their calls for "justice". They are taunting anyone who disagrees or...

    ...I’ve related my encounter, decades ago now, with an elderly black man in a shanty town near Dallas who was being victimized by neighborhood thieves and who told me, “We should do like they did in the cowboy days, and that’s look for the nearest tree.” I’ve told of other black Americans who feel much the same way about crime. I’ve described how American frontier history and modern social science both give us reason to believe that actual enforcement of capital punishment can have an impact totally unsuspected by most of us, who have been instructed for years that death...
