If Black Unemployment Is Being Caused By Racism…
24 Aug 2011 7:29 am John Hawkins
According to Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), black unemployment is being caused by racism.
“When you look at African American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. I understand exactly the entire nation must be involved in this recovery but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That’s what we’re experiencing. And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class; it’s slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with …
Obama Attends Cocktail Party At Home Of Wealthy Harvard Militant Marxist Black Panther Mentor
22 Aug 2011 3:17 pm Pat Dollard
Charles Ogletree was a black panther. He is also the lawyer of Henry Louis Gates, the racist Harvard professor who’s racism caused the beer summit. Ogletree’s daughter Rashida was recently hired into Holder’s Justice Department as a lawyer. Ogletree is still a militant leftist and is still called on by the Obamas for advice.
OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama put in a brief appearance Saturday at the home of his friend and one-time teacher, Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, as he continued his Martha’s Vineyard vacation.
Anti-Americanism Disguised as Ethnic Studies in Tucson Schools
22 Aug 2011 1:12 pm Rachel Alexander
The Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) is in a contentious fight with the state of Arizona over its controversial Mexican-American Studies program. A state law went into effect in Arizona on January 1, 2011, banning the teaching of ethnic studies in K-12 schools. It was prompted by an investigation into TUSD’s ethnic studies curriculum by Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne when he was State Superintendent of Schools.
The program is known as “raza studies,” which means race studies, championed by organizations like the far left organization National Council of La Raza. …
On Illegal Immigration, “Civil Rights” Groups Want It Both Ways
9 Aug 2011 9:07 am William Teach
Los Federales have decided that states and localities cannot op out of the Secure Communities program
Civil rights groups are considering a lawsuit to try to block the federal government from requiring all police agencies to screen people booked into local jails for immigration violations.
The Department of Homeland Security on Friday announced that local police agencies could not opt out of a program known as Secure Communities, which started in 2008, is now active in 1,300 local jurisdictions and is scheduled to be in place nationwide by 2013.
That’s not actually put …
The Modern Roman Colosseum: Euthanasia as a Spectator Sport
8 Aug 2011 11:55 am Rachel Alexander
Last month, Nikolai Ivanisovich, a 62-year old Russian man with brain cancer, sold the rights to broadcast his euthanasia to BattleCam.com, a 24/7 reality TV website. The proceeds were reportedly enough to take care of his surviving family. In June, BBC2 broadcast a documentary showing the suicide of terminally ill Peter Smedley, including his pitiful cries for waterthat were refused by the doctor.
A disturbing trend has developed over the last few years of broadcasting the suicides of the weak and elderly in society for entertainment. Much of it is due to the glamorization …
Obama Should Make Black Americans Wonder If They’re Supporting The Right Party
5 Aug 2011 5:20 am John Hawkins
Black Americans have been voting monolithically for the Democratic Party since the Nixon era. In other words, for 40 years now, anywhere the black vote is decisive, there have been Democrats in charge.
The fascinating thing about that is the Democratic Party has delivered almost nothing other than poverty, misery, and victimhood for black Americans during that time. In other words, the more power black Americans give to the Democratic Party over their lives, the worse they do.
This includes Barack Obama, who is extremely popular with black Americans, despite the …

Autocrats, dictators, leaders for life!
The latter bit of the last millennium shows perfectly well what a world full of despots looks like. The last century was like the bloodiest ever and all thanks to dictators. It was bloody not only because of the wars; it was bloody because of democide—the sheer mind numbing number of ppl that these creeps and jerks killed within their own Westphalian Sovereignity dodge proof borders -169 million.
Tyrannies killed more of their own citizens than foreigners. Despots caused …
The KKK Does Public Relations
1 Jun 2011 5:00 pm John Hawkins
This story just struck me as absurdly funny. I think it’s because the KKK is protesting one of the very few groups that are even less popular than it is.
As President Obama honored fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery on Monday, three members of the Westboro Baptist Church protested the ceremony, holding signs that read “Pray for more dead soldiers” and “God hates your prayers,” as the controversial group has become known to do. They were met by about 70 counterprotesters, including members from a group just as contentious as …
Anti-Homosexual Hate Crime at UNC Was Yet Another Hoax
13 Apr 2011 12:02 pm Dave Blount
University of North Carolina freshman Quinn Matney made the news with claims that he was called a bad name and even burned with a piece of hot metal for being a homosexual. Like most outlandish hate crimes attributed to the enemies of political correctness, his story is fake:
A UNC-Chapel Hill freshman who told police he was attacked by a man who burned his hand and called him an anti-gay slur made a false report, the university says.
In a message just released to the campus community, Chancellor Holden Thorp says: “The …
Iran’s “Forgotten” Revolution for Democracy Becomes a Genocide
1 Mar 2011 11:06 pm Jane Jamison
Update: Persian2English: March 2, 2011 “Iran executes at least 20 people in one day
The world is “happily” focused on the “new” revolutions and uprisings in Northern Africa and the Middle East, and blissfully ignoring warnings that these are actually “veiled” actions by radical Islamists who are waiting their turn to take over these countries. Overlooked entirely is the media ’buzzkill” of a mass genocide in an Islamic dictatorship which noone in the world has the courage to stop.
Obama’s Department of Injustice Targets Popular Republican Governor
27 Feb 2011 7:22 pm Brian Garst
Eric Holder’s DoJ is not interested in prosecuting the Black Panthers, but they are pulling out the stops to take out a rising star in the Republican Party – Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. The legal harassment is ostensibly to enforce “voting laws,” but political motivations are evident.
From The Washington Examiner:
Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department has targeted Gov. Bobby Jindal’s, R-La., administration as part of a rushed investigation into whether Louisiana is complying with federal voting laws. Undercover investigators …

Head Of NC DOT Wants Citizen Investigated For Speaking Up
4 Feb 2011 9:15 am William Teach
From my hometown of Raleigh, NC, we learn that dissent is a means to a criminal investigation
David N. Cox says he was merely exercising his right to petition the government, but a state Department of Transportation official has raised allegations that Cox committed a misdemeanor: practicing engineering without a license.
Cox and his North Raleigh neighbors are lobbying city and state officials to add traffic signals at two intersections as part of a planned widening of Falls of Neuse Road.
After an engineering consultant hired by …
Amanpour Fails to Understand History, Says Political Climate Just Like the 1960s
24 Jan 2011 4:00 pm Warner Todd Huston
The inch deep analysis that we get from the illiterati in the left-media shows that they have agendas, sure, but no grasp of history, logic, or facts. No better example of the facile nature of the Old Media can be had than Christiane Amanpour and on ABC News she strutted her imbecilic excuse for historical analysis once again.
In a January 20 interview with the sister of John F. Kennedy, Amanpour attempted to equate the “political atmosphere” of today with that of 1963 when President Kennedy was murdered as well as …
The Left’s New Civil-sorship
22 Jan 2011 10:43 am Warner Todd Huston
Let’s be civil, OK? I mean, let’s tone it down out there. You people need to rise to a better, more civil discourse. I know this because the entire left wing in America today is telling us this (even as Democrat Steve Cohen is calling anyone that opposes him a Nazi).
We need to get rid of all the violent rhetoric, they say. We need to stop saying words like “target” or using a crosshair symbol on election maps. Maybe we should stop saying that politicians have a “war room,” too? …

Obama to Sue States to End Worker’s Right to Secret Ballot
19 Jan 2011 12:21 pm Warner Todd Huston
Barack Obama has given more payoffs, sweetheart deals, and new favorable regulations to Big Labor than any president in history. They should love him for his incredible largess. Next, in his never ending quest to harm the business community, defy the will of the voters, and give his pals in Big Labor paybacks, Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) — a federal labor regulatory agency — is about to sue any state that dares attempt to protect the right of workers to have secret ballots in their workplace elections. The …View More...

Stephen Breyer: Your Constitutional Rights vary with geography
12 Dec 2010 9:20 pm Chris Wysocki
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning. He spoke to his interpretation of the Founding Fathers’ intent with regard to gun control. Hint — as an ultra-liberal Mr. Justice Breyer is totally in favor of as much gun control regulation as possible. After all, he authored the dissenting opinion in D.C. v. Heller in which the majority affirmed the right to keep and bear arms clearly articulated in the Second Amendment.
What struck me most about Breyer’s reasoning though was …
