  • Hollywood Celebrates Major League Baseball Taking a Knee: ‘I Started Tearing Up!’

    Hollywood celebrities cheered their approval when major league baseball players took a knee during Thursday’s season opening games on both sides of the country. The players, who were sometimes joined by their coaches, knelt during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner. The kneeling was their way of paying tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement as well as to former NFL star Colin Kaepernick, who started the trend when he began kneeling during the national anthem at football games. President Donald Trump has expressed his disapproval of kneeling during the national anthem, saying that he will stop watching sporting events...
  • U.S. Senate passes $740 billion defense bill, bucking Trump on Confederate names

    The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed its version of the National Defense Authorization Act, a $740 billion bill setting policy for the Pentagon that President Donald Trump has threatened to veto over a provision removing Confederate names from military bases. The vote was 86-14, one of the few times the Republican-led Senate has broken from the president, and could pave the way for a fight later this year with the White House. The Senate and Democratic-led House of Representatives each passed versions of the bill, known as the NDAA, with far more than the two-thirds majorities needed to override a...

    **SNIP** In Sterling Heights, three teen girls from Chippewa Valley High School - Mary Vucaj, Angel Santana and Ariana Belyue - planned and lead a 4,000-person protest along the Golden Corridor on June 6. In Detroit, 16-year-old Stefan Perez has become a leader among the daily Black Lives Matter protesters. Meanwhile, 17-year-old Rockwood teen Taylor Martin held her own Detroit protest along the Dequindre Cut. So, what is inspiring local Gen Z teens to stand up against police brutality and speak out in support of equality more so than teens of past generations? We spoke with Taylor Martin to find...

    “Useful idiots” is a phrase attributed to Vladimir Lenin, who supposedly used it to describe communist sympathizers in Western Civilization. It is a very appropriate descriptor when it comes to the so-called “woke” mob of the so-called “resistance” that has overtaken the streets of America. Well, let me rephrase that: They have overtaken the streets of major population centers in America. The infestation of wokeness and idiocy seems concentrated in the very places where progressive socialist policies have failed in America. Consider the idiocy of a city in Colorado that is incarcerating people who do not wear a mask. Yet...
  • What My Neighborhood Needs: Fewer Virtue Signaling Lawn Signs

    American Thinker ^ | June 21, 2020 | Clarice Feldman
    ... As soon as the mayhem began in Minnesota, a number of houses on the next block sprouted commercially prepared lawn signs supporting Black Lives Matter. (Many of these same homes earlier sported lawn signs saying “Hate has no Home here” and “All Are Welcome” when the President halted immigration from countries where background checks were decidedly unreliable.) Frankly, I was never under the impression that black lives didn’t matter. I’m old school enough to think all lives matter. Indeed, I think treating all people equally and entitled to the protection of their person, property, and rights of civil enjoyment...

    San Francisco's Mayor London Breed is setting up her city's social workers for potential bloodshed, offering a series of "reforms" that even her former police commissioner calls "pure political pandering." San Francisco police will no longer be called to settle disputes between neighbors, or to handle homeless people, or any non-criminal cases, according to a new plan announced by Mayor London Breed.

    American Thinker ^ | K.E. Campbell
    An investigative report on Black Lives Matter (BLM) published four and half years ago foretold current events in many respects. The report, Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Roots of Black Lives Matter by James Simpson at the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, is the best source I've found as to BLM's origins, tactics, funding, and goals. The report begins with this: The Black Lives Matter movement casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner-city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades....

    Actor Ben Platt, the star of Netflix’s The Politician and the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, is urging white people to keep donating money to bail funds in order to keep rioters who have been arrested out of jail. “White ppl at home pls keep donating to the bail funds below,” Ben Platt tweeted on Sunday. The Tony Award-winning actor also voiced his support for Black Lives Matter and told white people to avoid creating chaos when protesting in the streets because it will reflect badly on the black community. “White ppl at protests, though we can’t control undue violence...

    ...Good news for looters, you can find some overpriced junk with Teigen's name on it at Target....Maybe if Target stopped doing business with radical lefty celebs who help looters and rioters, its stores would be less likely to be looted. But Vladimir knew what he was talking about. Corporate America can't and won't stop following the lead of the radical lefties...Keep doubling down on social justice and eventually you'll run out of stores. When you make America a target, you also make yourself a target.
  • We learned that in Minnesota the National Guard, State Police, and the local Police turned and ran and left the citizens to defend for themselves. So I have a couple of questions for our “Protect and Serve” authorities. (Vanity)

    1. What determines the point at which you will turn and run and abandon the citizens you have sworn to protect and serve? 2. Can you draft a policy which gives the citizens a clear understanding of when you will turn and run? This is vital to the community because they need as much notice as possible to arm, organize, and deploy to have a chance to overcome the threat. 3. Hypothetically, suppose a crowd of thousands of thugs approaches a community and you turn and run and abandon your citizens. The next day, thousands of bodies of thugs are...

    Just four days after George Floyd was killed by Minneapolis Police Officer, Derek Chauvin, and the video sparked protests across the country, Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz welcomed in a few dozen African American community leaders to talk at One Government Center. Mayor Kapszukiewicz acknowledged that Toledo is 652 miles away from Minneapolis, where the incident happened that resulted in Floyd's death. But he said the video made him sick to his stomach and he made a long-term commitment to opening up communication, and having difficult conversations like he had. In front of the Safety Building after the meeting, the mayor...

    The Bangladeshi-Indian restaurant, Gandhi Mahal, in Minneapolis' 3rd Precinct was burned to the ground during riots that ravaged the city Thursday night into Friday morning. The restaurant sat in the epicenter of where America's riots began following the death of George Floyd. In fact, 18-year-old Hafsa Islam, the restaurant owner's daughter, saw Floyd being arrested while she was making a Door Dash delivery. She learned later in the day that Floyd had died. Hafsa was originally upset with the fact that her family's business – and main source of income – was lost until she heard her father say, "Let...

    We knew from recent rallies and riots that it’s highly likely the groups behind today’s riots are Domestic terrorists, revolutionary communists, US based radical Islamist organizations and others related to the Democrat Party. Today we have more proof this is the case. We reported a few days ago that Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar’s daughter tweeted out support for the protestors: Minnesota Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar’s daughter Isra Hirsi, retweeted a list of supplies for “comrades” who are rioting in Minneapolis. Isra Hirsi is the co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike and her Twitter bio says she ‘hates capitalism.’ Isra Hirsi...

    A video shows a white couple bending down and kissing the boots of black power group members to apologize for slavery. The eight-minute clip appears to have been filmed in First Citizens Plaza in Charlotte, North Carolina. It was uploaded to the YouTube page of the Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, a radical faction of the black nationalist Black Hebrew Israelite movement, under the title: “WHEN HEATHENS #RECOGNIZE TRUE #PROPHETS OF #GOD.” Two people who had expressed an affinity with the group were responsible for the December 2019 attack on a JC Kosher Supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey...

    The World Health Organization is currently reeling from President Donald Trump’s decision to halt funding due to the group’s alleged mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and its repeated deference to China’s Communist leaders who have covered up the extent of the outbreak. On Saturday, the United Nations agency sought to put its troubles out of sight and out of mind as it enlisted Lady Gaga and Beyoncé to lead an all-star virtual concert that helped raise more than $128 million, according to a release from organizers. Of the money raised, $55.1 million will go toward the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response...

    Flubros day 5! It’s just the flu, bro. Starting this thread earlier in the day today so that East Coasters can see it more easily. How do you become a flubro (or flubra) and join the caucus? Easy - all you have to do is correctly recognize that Wuhan Chinese flu is not really that dangerous compared to an ordinary flu and the government/media/health care industrial complexes are overblowing things. Swine flu killed 12k in one year a decade ago in the USA and hardly anything got shut down. The economic consequences of this overreach will kill more than this...
