  • Shalala walks into anti-Castro buzz saw: How a campaign event with Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee [tr]

    Poltico ^ | October 18, 2018 | Marc Caputo
    There’s a simple rule in running for Congress in Miami: Don’t campaign with someone who praised Fidel Castro and fought sanctions against Venezuela’s dictatorial regime. But Donna Shalala didn’t figure it out until it was too late. In a district filled with Castro-hating Cuban-Americans and Venezuelan exiles, Shalala’s campaign committed an egregious gaffe — and set off a round of Democratic finger-pointing — by posting an announcement that she would hold a campaign event Wednesday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Californian, Rep. Barbara Lee.

    Wilson Times ^ | 10/15/18 | Olivia Neeley
    Wilson voters made a statement Monday afternoon when they banded together to change their political party affiliation. **SNIP** Six voters headed to the Wilson County Board of Elections Monday to do just that, including 88-year-old Joyce Wells. “I’ve never felt like this before,” said Wells, who has been a registered Democrat for 70 years. “I’m going to independent.” Wells said the decision to switch followed Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct. “I can tell you how simple it is for me,” Wells said. “I believe in the Constitution and innocent until...

    Men are being asked to don a suit and tie for a Friday protest circling the Supreme Court, the day after the Women's March returns in D.C. to demonstrate against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The FBI's supplementary investigation into sexual assault allegations against the judge is expected to available for viewing at the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

    When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society's rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules. I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. I watched left-wing students make "nonnegotiable demands" of college administrations. I saw the Black Panthers engage in violence – including torture and murder – and be financially rewarded by leftists. Today, we watch leftist mobs scream profanities at professors and deans, and shut down conservative...

    AFPC China Reform Monitor ^ | 4/27/2011 | Joshua Eisenman, ed.
    Chinese security forces continue to surround the Kirti Tibetan monastery in Sichuan after local residents tried to stop them from arresting the 2,500 monks holed up inside. The standoff began earlier this week, when hundreds of people living in Sichuan's Aba region converged on the monastery determined to stop police from removing the monks for reeducation. The monks could soon face food shortages because they depend on offerings from locals, the Voice of America reports. A U.S. State Department spokesman said the U.S. is concerned about China's actions in Aba, which it called it inconsistent with the internationally recognized principles...

    Students held a sit-in today at Yale Law School to protest the Kavanaugh nomination while some of their classmates traveled to Washington, D.C. for a similar protest. Classes were canceled to make time for all the protesting. From the Cut: Today, 115 YLS students bussed down to the U.S. Capitol, while dozens of others are occupying their school’s halls in a sit-in to demand that the Senate committee conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the mounting sexual-assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

    POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. -- The College of the Ozarks says it's dropping its affiliation with Nike in response to the company's new ad campaign. Nike released their ad campaign this week on the 30th anniversary of the “Just Do It” slogan. It features ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The endorsement deal is prompting a flood of debate online as sports fans react to the apparel giant backing an athlete known mainly for starting a wave of protests among NFL players of police brutality, racial inequality and other social issues. “In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an...

    Protesters billing themselves as "anti-violence" will march along the Kennedy Expressway in Chicago to O'Hare airport where they say they plan to shut the facility down. Chicago police have offered the protesters alternatives, but it looks like some kind of confrontation is inevitable. USA Today: Any disruption could cause major headaches for travelers headed home from holiday weekends. Major David Byrd, spokesman for the Illinois State Police, said authorities will not allow the protest to interrupt traffic. Byrd said authorities had offered protesters alternative venues for the march, adding that he hoped no arrests would need to be made. But he...

    Illinois State Police on Monday arrested a dozen anti-violence protesters who were trying to march onto the Kennedy Expressway near O’Hare International Airport. Eight men and four women were arrested, given $120 citations for being a “pedestrian on a highway,” and released, according to State Police Major David Byrd. Among those arrested was the Rev. Gregory Livingston, who organized the protest. Livingston and about 60 other protesters were met by dozens of state troopers who lined the Cumberland Avenue entrance ramp to Interstate 90. A trooper on a megaphone repeated: “This is the Illinois State Police. It is against the...

Newton Gun Club and New Black Panther Party.

    NEW YORK (AP) — The government’s top official overseeing the $1.5 trillion student loan market resigned in protest on Monday, citing what he says is the White House’s open hostility toward protecting the nation’s millions of student loan borrowers. Seth Frotman will be stepping down as student loan ombudsman at the end of the week, according to his resignation letter, which was obtained by The Associated Press. He held that position since 2016, but has been with Consumer Financial Protection Bureau since its inception in 2011. Frotman is the latest high-level departure from the CFPB since Mick Mulvaney, President Donald...

    Prison inmates across the country are preparing to go on strike by refusing to eat or work, as a way to protest what they call 'prison slavery' and poor conditions. Though the extent of the planned strike is not known, prisoners in at least 17 states say they will be taking part in coordinated action, which will begin on Tuesday and last through September 9. Organizers say the strike is partly in response to the April riot in South Carolina's Lee Correctional Institution, where seven inmates were killed by other prisoners when gang tensions boiled over. The masterminds of the...

    Warning: This story contains graphic content Paul Welch came to the downtown protest Aug. 4 to let his political leanings be known. With pride he clutched his U.S. flag as he moved among the crowd of like-thinking demonstrators. Soon a group of black-clad anti-fascist protesters, also known as antifa, demanded he lose the flag, calling it a fascist symbol. Welch refused, and a tug-of-war ensued. It ended with Welch taking a club to the back of the head, lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood. Only Welch was not a Proud Boy, a Patriot Prayer supporter...

    Right-wing demonstrators gathered Saturday in Seattle for a "Liberty or Death" rally that drew counter-protesters from the left while dozens of police kept the two sides separated. The right-wing groups Washington 3 Percenters and Patriot Prayer were holding the rally outside Seattle City Hall to protest an effort to launch a gun-control initiative that would raise the age in Washington state for people buying semi-automatic rifles. The left-wing groups Organized Workers for Labor Solidarity, Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party were rallying at the same site.

    heart attack, yup. It was said by her own mother, during a live TV broadcast and there wasn’t shit the news media could do about it. It’s also exactly at that moment the media hurriedly buried it. Now, I’m no conspiracy nut either, but I do recognize it when someone’s trying to manipulate a story to push an agenda. If you try to look up the cause of death, the only thing that’ll come up will refer to the original report from the scene that day, which was just the opinion of whoever showed up and filled it out, but...
