    Had they only been armed to the teeth and determined to resist against government tyranny as is their God-given right, the Jews would never have been loaded meekly onto those Holocaust trains by the German government. The masses of Ukrainian and Russian peasant farmers would never have been starved to death by the Russian government. The Armenian Genocide could have been avoided. The Killing Fields of Cambodia would not have happened. And, had the blacks been armed to the teeth against government tyranny and determined to resist, there would have been no slaves in America. Think about that before allowing...

    A Tennessee school district apologized Thursday after a homework assignment asked students to pretend their “family owns slaves.” Dr. Mike Looney, director of Williamson County schools, called the assignment “insensitive” and “wholly inappropriate,” in an apology he issued on Twitter...The assignment, which dealt with issues of slavery, immigration and child labor, was given to 8th-grade social studies students at Sunset Middle School in Williamson County. Part of the homework asked students to imagine that their family owns slaves and then “create a list of expectations” for those slaves, FOX17 Nashville reported.

    Five day spas were targeted as a part of the investigation: Cove Day Spa and Therapy Spa in Stuart, Bridge Day Spa and Sequoia Apple Day Spa in Hobe Sound, and Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. “They were cooking on the back steps of the business. These women were sleeping in massage parlors, on the massage tables and had no access to transportation,” said [Sherriff] Synder, who noted the victims were averaging eight clients a day. “If you do the math, that is about 1,500 men a year, with no days off.” Ruimei Li, 49, (of Jupiter)...

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, said she “probably” would support the effort to study reparations for descendants of slaves. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) sponsored H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act, following Rep. John Conyers’ (D-Mich.) resignation from Congress in 2017. The bill seeks to “address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for...

    A group advocating to rename Faneuil Hall because of its namesake's ties to slavery will re-enact a slave auction outside the historic downtown building this weekend. The New Democracy Coalition says Saturday's event is designed to call attention to Boston's history of slavery. The building known as the Cradle of Liberty is named after Peter Faneuil, a wealthy 18th century slave owner who financed construction as a gift to the city.

    While Pyongyang is cut off from the international financial system, it is able to make up to $2.3 billion in hard currency a year by sending some 100,000 or more workers abroad, according to estimates. Up to 80 per cent of them go to China and Russia, where they are employed in what the UN has called “slave-like conditions” and give up to 90 per cent of their wages to Kim Jong-un's regime. Contractors have said North Koreans helped build the World Cup stadium in St Petersburg, where at least one died on site. Previously many of them worked in...

    Leftist ideologues live in an alternate universe, a product of their hallucinations of an America that does not exist except in their own demented thinking. The latest manifestation of this delusional perception is Eugene Robinson's opinion piece in the Washington Post on July 5. Here is some of what he said: Racism is a feature of the Trump administration, not a bug[.] ... We have not seen such overt racism from a president since Woodrow Wilson imposed Jim Crow segregation in Washington and approvingly showed "The Birth of a Nation," director D.W.

    Spain laid claim to the Island of Jamaica from the time Columbus landed there in 1494. In 1503, Columbus was shipwrecked there for a year. In 1655, Jamaica was captured by British Admiral William Penn, the father of Pennsylvania’s founder. Jamaica was too far from England to defend, so the inhabitants turned to privateers, freebooters, buccaneers and pirates for protection. The likes of Blackbeard, Calico Jack and Captain Henry Morgan, namesake of the rum, attacked Spanish ships and settlements, then returned to Jamaica with their booty. The skull pirate flag, called the “Jolly Roger,” was adapted from the flag of...

    I’d take muh man, Kanye, more seriously if he weren’t married to a Kardashian, the family that practically invented the ‘famous for being famous’ genre. Never the less, he’s blown the lid off the entire plantation mentality of the Left. And in true form the Left has censured him not just for exposing it, but for willfully throwing off the shackles.He was chastised by the legendary John Legend: Right! Remember that proud Republican racist running for president, George Wallace? Oh wait… Democrats always seem to have a hard time keeping the party allegiances of racists straight. But they are all...

    On Monday morning, Twitter erupted after Kanye West posted a screenshot of a text exchange he had with a friend about Abraham Lincoln. Twitter was set ablaze after Kanye West posted a screenshot of a text exchange he had with a friend named ‘Steve.’ “Abe Lincoln freed and protected the slaves and he was Republican,” Steve said to Kanye in a text message. “Republicans were the ones who helped black people; Democrats protected the rights of the slave owners of the south,” Steve continued. Kanye West replied, “I’m gonna tweet this” Steve responded with, “Those are facts”

    So, Kanye West has decided to leave the 21st century plantation. Way, way off the plantation:There will be hell to pay. For starters the media will try to make him out to be a mad man. The artist’s latest statements follow media outrage over the weekend after he claimed to love the thinking of conservative black activist Candace Owens, AKA Red Pill Black. On Monday he continued outraging the left by tweeting videos of conservative icon Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, examining the “golden age” taking place and discussing breaking free from “prisons of the mind.”That day West also fired...

    A California lawmaker has introduced a new bill that would make it illegal to distribute single-use straws to consumers at restaurants unless specifically requested. Ian Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California’s lower house, brought forth Assembly Bill 1884, citing environmental protection as a reason to discourage the use of “single use straws,” typically distributed with soft drinks, smoothies, and coffee, which are then disposed of after being used. “We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon stated in a media release. “AB 1884...
  • WATCH: African migrants tortured, auctioned by human traffickers in Libya

    A video showing migrants being tortured by human traffickers in Libya went viral on social media following a report by CNN showing footage of migrants being sold as slaves there. The last two scenes of the video shows migrants being subjected to unprecedented torture and brutality. A migrant who was completely stripped of his clothes cries out in pain as the trafficker burns a plastic bottle and drips hot plastic on his body. The migrants body shows several scars and burns. Another stands on his head using insulting language telling him to look up at the camera. The second video...

    BROOKSVILLE — A last-minute lawsuit may put the brakes on the long-awaited extension of the Suncoast Parkway north into Citrus County. Construction was slated to begin early next year. At a Hernando-Citrus Metropolitan Planning Organization meeting last week, city and county officials talked about a push at the state level to move the project ahead even faster. A ground-breaking ceremony was in the works. But like other steps in the process of building the toll road extension known as Suncoast Parkway 2, within days of that discussion, another shoe dropped. On Dec. 15, the Friends of Etna Turpentine Camp, Inc.,...

    They date back to the time of Thomas Edison. They’ve provided decades and decades of warm bright light to our homes and workplaces. And they’re about go bye-bye. Starting Jan. 1, 2018, the humble everyday incandescent light bulb will continue on its long and steady fade into our collective memory. Manufacturers will no longer make the traditional 100-watt bulb and stores will eventually sell out of current supplies. Consumers will have to choose from more efficient bulbs that use no more than 72 watts, including halogen incandescents, compact fluorescents and light-emitting diode, or LED, bulbs. This is not the first...

    Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara called Wednesday for "all urgent measures" to end migrant slave trading in Libya as he opened an Europe-Africa summit meant to focus on long-term economic growth and stability. The slavery revelations are casting a shadow over the Abidjan summit, which both sides hope will launch a deeper partnership to create jobs for Africa's exploding population while reducing mass migration and terrorism. "Given this wretched drama which recalls the worst hours of human history, I would like to appeal to our sense of responsibility to take all urgent measures to put an end to that practice...

    SOUTH KOREA, November 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – President Trump blasted the forced abortions and infanticide that are regularly committed in North Korea, asking why China would “feel an obligation” to help a country that kills Chinese babies for being “inferior.” “North Korean women are forced to abort babies that are considered ethnically inferior,” Trump told South Korea’s National Assembly. “And if these babies are born, the newborns are murdered.” “One woman's baby born to a Chinese father was taken away in a bucket,” Trump recalled. “The guard said it did not deserve to live because it was impure.”

    Houston Texans players are planning to protest as a unit before Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks in the wake of team owner Bob McNair's controversial "inmates running the prison" comment, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Texans held a players meeting Saturday in Seattle to decide how to handle Sunday after McNair's comments surfaced, the source said. Texans left tackle Duane Brown told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Sunday morning that he anticipates that "up to 65 to 70 percent" of the team's players could kneel. He said the players would not remove the team's decals from their...
