  • ‘Don’t Get Gaggled’: Minneapolis School District Spends Big on Student Surveillance Tool, Raising Ire After Terminating Its Police Contract

    Gaggle is currently used in hundreds of districts across the U.S., relying on artificial intelligence and a team of moderators paid as little as $10 an hour to scan billions of student emails, chat messages and files each year in search of references to sex, drugs and violence.
  • Hmm, Why Did Gretchen Whitmer Display a Sign That's Viewed as a Call to Assassinate Trump?

    Source: Twitter/ScreenshotGov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) sure is hypocritical, even for a politician. Just weeks after a deadly ricen poisoning was mailed to President Trump, Whitmer prominently displayed an "8645" sign in the background of the camera during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." When the term "86" is applied to a person it often carries the meaning of killing the individual.   The left is violent and murderous enough without further stoking by the governor. Antifa, ginned up by Democrats, routinely attacks cops and Trump supporters, killing one recently in Portland. Joe Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) talk about...

    Less than three weeks out from the Nov. 3 presidential election, during an interview with the Cap Times, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren touted the importance of Democratic candidate Joe Biden winning Wisconsin and the White House in a high-stakes election where "lives are on the line." The Massachusetts Democrat played up the stakes in this battleground state in Democrats' effort to oust President Donald Trump, describing it to attendees at a Madison drive-in get-out-the-vote event Saturday as one that lies "at the intersection" of this election. Slamming Republicans for “trying to steal a Supreme Court seat” ahead of the election...

    On Friday, protests took place in North Portland and at the Multnomah County Justice Center in Downtown. Demonstrators are calling for people to head to the Multnomah County Justice Center, which was where protesters gathered on Thursday as well. Earlier in the afternoon, demonstrators also hosted a sit-in at a Black Indigenous family’s home on Mississippi Avenue who are under the threat of eviction.

  • Police In Bangkok Use Water Cannon To Break Up Anti-Government Protests

    Riot police in Bangkok used water cannon and charged crowds to disperse thousands of protesters in the Thai capital, a day after the government officially banned street rallies demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, a new constitution and reform of the country's monarchy. Mostly students defied a government ban on gatherings in the capital on Friday imposed a day earlier after protesters halted and jeered a motorcade transporting King Maha Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida. It was an unprecedented display of displeasure for the royal couple in a country where people are taught to revere the monarchy and where...

    Conservative Daily News ^ | 10/16/2020 | Mary Rose Corkery
    Around 40% of college students said they will likely or certainly protest if President Donald Trump wins the election, according to an Axios poll released Friday. Exactly 22% of students surveyed said they are ‘likely’ to protest and 17% said they will ‘certainly’ protest should Trump win the 2020 election, the College Reaction/Axios survey found. More students, 30%, said they would not protest if Trump won and 31% said they are not likely to protest a Trump victory. “The dissatisfaction with the status quo is also reflected by the number of students who are willing to protest Trump reelection with...

    The lead writer of The New York Times’ anti-American “1619 Project” suffered a meltdown last week when a colleague at her paper offered fair criticism of its revisionist and inaccurate account of history.On Oct. 9, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens published a more than 3,000-word essay outlining the project’s blunders that have led the academics with the National Association of Scholars (NAS) to call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to revoke its award to the project’s chief essayist, Nikole Hannah-Jones.“Journalists are, most often, in the business of writing the first rough draft of history, not trying to have...

    Center for the American Experiment ^ | Oct 14 2020 | John Phelan
    Yesterday, the Minnesota Senate’s Transportation and Public Safety Committee released its report on this summer’s riots in Minneapolis. The Star Tribune report on this was headlined: ‘Minnesota Senate GOP report blames Gov. Tim Walz, Mayor Jacob Frey for slow riot response‘. The sub-header read: ‘Democratic leaders reject findings, call document fodder for election’, which is curious, because previously both Governor Walz and Mayor Frey had said that the other was to blame.

    LOS ANGELES, CA—Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, having opposed large religious gatherings in his city for the past 7 months, has suddenly reversed course, allowing a large worship service to take place in the streets of the city last night. Despite the ban on religious gatherings, the worshipers came together to honor their god, LeBron James, in a spontaneous outpouring of love and praise. Worshipers in this religion, rather than singing songs or saying prayers, topple cars and throw things at the police.
  • Sean Lennon can’t ‘imagine’ why Portland protesters toppled Lincoln statue

    Sean Lennon just can’t imagine why protesters would try to take Abraham Lincoln down. The son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono got on Twitter Monday to ask his 307,000 followers: “Can someone explain why it appears a Lincoln statue was toppled in Portland? Asking for a friend.” The 45-year-old musician was responding to Sunday night’s protests in the Oregon city — billed as an “Indigenous Peoples Day of Rage” — over the Christopher Columbus holiday, in which a crowd toppled statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt. Lennon then appeared to mock the protesters by sarcastically suggesting that...

    The riots of 2020 are the battlefront of a movement hatched from an alternative history built upon an abstruse foundation of systemic racism and white privilege. In early summer, they created an apocalyptic spectacle of 23 American cities in flames, burned-out cars, shattered storefronts, unchecked looting, and occupied neighborhoods. Then events then took a curious turn. According to the Bridging the Divide Initiative, a Princeton think tank that conducts U.S. protest modeling with a wink and nod to the left, there was a free fall in the number of BLM-associated demonstrations and uprisings from a late-May peak to an October...

    The intersection in south Minneapolis where George Floyd died in police custody on May 25 has become a quasi-religious shrine. It is a shrine not just to Floyd, who is honored here as if he were a saint or a martyr, but to the political power of the Black Lives Matter movement and the ascendency of the radical left in this city. The intersection and the neighborhood around it have been “occupied” for months now. To get to the memorial—or “George Square,” as it’s now called—you must approach on foot. For a block in every direction, the streets are closed...
  • How China funds and organizes riots and civil unrest in America

    Even while it expands its economic and military reach abroad, China is stealthily funding and organizing riots and civil unrest in America. There is growing comprehension of the extent of China's attempts to undermine America and establish itself as the world's dominant economic and political power. Globally, China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), begun in 2013, has spread across all continents, enrolling at least 138 countries to date. The BRI reach is vast, and, although it lacks transparency, a common estimate is that it incorporates 38 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, 25 East Asia and Pacific countries, 17 nations in the...
  • Slow Motion Video Of The Denver Shooting From Photos Was Released It Shows Matthew Dolloff Clearly Reaching For Keltner’s Gun

    Denver police have arrested a private security guard working for a television crew on suspicion of murder after he shot and killed a man believed to be part of a ‘Patriot Muster’ rally outside the Denver Art Museum. The Patriot Muster protester maced the security guard, who then pulled out his handgun and shot him dead. This is what we hear from the mainstream media. But the reality is that the patriot who was shot dead was reportedly trying to defend himself with bear spray when confronted by two suspects at gunpoint. The man who was shot dead was reportedly...

    Democrat mayors and city councils have surrendered America’s largest cities to “domestic terrorists,” said Howard Safir, former New York City police commissioner and fire commissioner, offering his remarks on Monday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. Safir said, “It’s the Democratic cities who have basically ceded their cities to what got called ‘peaceful protesters’ but are really people who are vandals and looters, and in some cases, not only assault people but are murderers.” Safir added, “You look at Seattle, you look at Minneapolis, you look at Chicago, and places like that where basically they have...

    American Spectator ^ | October 12, 2020 | J. T. Young
    Liberals’ thin edge of delegitimization has brought with it the thick wedge of lawlessness. In contrast to leftist apologists’ claims, this is not an unintended consequence but a direct result of the left’s strategy to deny authority to the existing status quo. It knows exactly what it is doing, only America remains in the dark. Lacking control of legitimate authority, and thereby the means to remake society, the left must seize authority. To do so, it must first wrest authority from its legitimate holders. Unable to do this by force, or it undoubtedly would do so, it must erode the...

    In the midst of a challenging pandemic, many American cities have been under siege. Amid violence and riots, the rule of law has been abandoned by the same elected officials who swore to uphold it. Law-abiding citizens who unwittingly drove through protests have found themselves attacked or left to the mercy of a mob. The promotion of civil unrest and the systematic destruction of neighborhoods and businesses have been permitted with limited consequences under the guise of the First Amendment’s protection of the right to protest. Yet when the case for protecting the Second Amendment couldn’t be stronger to reasonable...
