    Fireworks abound during Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News Monday night when he invited Sunsara Taylor, an organizer with Refuse Fascism, to discuss the organization’s manifesto. Refuse doesn’t mince words, describing the Trump administration as illegitimate and having roots in misogyny, white supremacy, and warmongering. Oh, and they hate women and deny science. For the good of humanity, we must all resist this fascist regime that has control of nuclear weapons. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Taylor went right into it with Tucker who initially asked if this is a fascist administration, how could it be that she could be on his show, alluding...

    TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Thousands of automotive jobs are coming to west Alabama but to get those jobs, you will require technical skill and training.

My sources tell me that US and Russian air forces are increasingly coordinating and de-conflicting their air actions in Syria and Iraq. This can clearly be seen in USAF and US Navy air attacks on "moderate" (in fact jihadi forces) in Idlib Province. these obviously have been coordinated with Russian air defenses. 3.

    Concord-based Alevo Energy is considering spending more than $250 million to expand production at its utility battery plant and add 202 jobs there. This week, Concord City Council voted to offer Alevo $4.2 million in corporate incentives if it chooses to expand and add jobs over the coming five years. Cabarrus County is considering a similar offer. “The jobs and the investment can have an important impact on the whole community,” says Joseph Beasley, economic development coordinator at the city of Concord. For Alevo, the project would become the first major infusion of capital since its owners announced in 2014...

My America started every day in school with prayer and then standing, placing right hand over the heart and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, including the line ‘one nation under God’.

They have a truly dangerous adversary like Milo Yiannopoulos, someone who bravely and wades into the fight, and does so in such a way that he exposes to the maximum number of people how monstrous the ideological enemy really is -- and then self-righteous "conservatives" take him down without the Left having to lift a finger. This is just so wrong. You'd think that people, especially those on...

    If an asteroid was headed for Sweden, the response of the Swedes would be to deny it, right up to impact. They would not get excited. They would not react. They would just die. Because they're so open minded and tolerant. Donald Trump made a statement, admittedly clumsy, about the effect of immigrants on Sweden. It ain't pretty. He was roundly ridiculed. Now, a few days later riots have broken out in the Stockholm neighborhood of Rinkeby: Riots broke out in a predominantly immigrant neighborhood of Stockholm Monday night, as residents clashed with police officers and set vehicles on fire,...

    Tuesday, February 21, 2017 The End of Palestine Posted by Daniel Greenfield Palestine is many things. A Roman name and a Cold War lie. Mostly it’s a justification for killing Jews. Palestine was an old Saudi-Soviet scam which invented a fake nationality for the Arab clans who had invaded and colonized Israel. This big lie transformed the leftist and Islamist terrorists run by them into the liberators of an imaginary nation. Suddenly the efforts of the Muslim bloc and the Soviet bloc to destroy the Jewish State became an undertaking of sympathetically murderous underdogs. But the Palestine lie is past...

The United States is a democratic republic.” Not satisfied with that justification of semantics and nuance, I continued to explore and discover the difference between U.S. republic and democracy and I’m still exploring it today.

Yet that’s the number of respondents who want to end sanctuary cities in favor of local law enforcement reporting illegals to the feds. That’s the top line of a new Harvard–Harris Poll, which contains some very good news for Trump and some very bad news for Democrats.

In response, Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera complimented Sean on his statistics, and then immediately pivoted to what the TV news stories would look like if the administration was rounding up 11 million “undocumented” immigrants in this country. Geraldo’s pivot was pure speculation. The administration’s latest directives on immigration say nothing about rounding up 11 million people.

It had even progressed - digressed, actually - to the point where the Republican...

    Some modest proposals to reduce the income tax have been introduced in the state Legislature. This triggered a backlash from pundits and politicians as they defend current spending levels by forecasting doom if the state dares to let Michigan families and small businesses keep more of their own money. But Michigan’s economy has been in growth mode for half a decade, putting more money in the state treasury year after year. Lawmakers can afford to give residents the income tax cut they deserve. In 2007, the state hiked the income tax from 3.9 percent to 4.35 percent to plug a...

Did you know that this massive cap-and-ball revolver was the most powerful revolver until the modern .357 Magnum cartridge was invented? That truth is certainly quite impressive. At the time, the Colt 1847 Walker Revolver would have been unlike anything ever experienced before. The massive .44 caliber revolver was meant for taking out mounted opponents on horseback, or the...

But there is more to be done, and lawmakers should start by opening up the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to more sunshine. The MEDC is the state’s department of corporate welfare. It takes hundreds of millions of hard-earned dollars from millions of Michigan taxpayers each year and bestows favors on a few select companies. It also spends tens...

Republican Senator Mark Chelgren of Ottumwa's proposed bill would freeze professor hiring at state universities until the faculty is balanced in terms of political ideology. This means, for example, a professor registered as a Democrat would not be hired unless the amount of Democrat and Republican faculty members at the school is within 10% of each other.

    On the eve of the deadline for anti-Dakota Access Pipeline protesters to vacate camps in North Dakota, the company in charge of construction said in a court filing on Tuesday that oil could start flowing in as early as two weeks, beating previous estimates. Texas-based developer Energy Transfer Partners, the builder of the pipeline whose construction has sparked protests since last August over its location, said in the filing to the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that the company "estimates and targets that the pipeline will be complete and ready to flow oil anywhere between the week of March...
  • Sean Hannity, Fox News Interview James O'Keefe via zerohedge: Is James O'Keefe About To Smoke CNN?

    James O'Keefe of Project Veritas is set to unleash holy hell Thursday on #FakeNews network CNN. Well, he didn't exactly say it was CNN, but it was heavily implied. Apparently the network has a mole... ADVERTISING O'Keefe is known for undercover sting operations which have led to such bombshells as the DNC's paid agitator network, the outing of "DisruptJ20" / Antifa organizers which took place comet ping pong - and netted three arrests (including a suspected pedophile), and most recently New Hampshire election fraud. Today O'Keefe was interviewed on Sean Hannity's radio show where he revealed that a major network...

    President Donald Trump pledged Tuesday to combat bigotry and unite what he called a "divided country" after wrapping up his first visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "Today and every day of my presidency I pledge to do everything I can to continue that promise of freedom for African-Americans and for every American," Trump said, calling his tour "a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry and hatred and intolerance." "We're going to bring this country together. We have a divided country that's been divided for many, many years, but we're going to...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 02/21/2017 | Sundance
    Many people are noticing a rather familiar, albeit oddly timed, leftist “anti-Semitism” narrative being pushed into the media broadcasts over the past 36 hours. Yes, it seems to have come out of no-where. Why? No-one is really understanding what’s going on. Understandably, the right-side of the political continuum are referencing the media push from the position of their own camp; that makes them defensive. However, the actual motive of the professional corporate media to push this meme has nothing to do with President Trump or republicans – it’s an internal maneuver and transparently Clintonian. {..snip..}

    Stanford Law School’s Journal of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties has published a special issue, A Lawyer’s Guide to Activism, Resistance, and Change Under Trump.“The focus of this edition is the role that law students and lawyers can play in protecting rights, liberties, and a healthy environment under a new president whose statements as a candidate and early actions indicate a significant retrenchment from gains made in these areas over the last several decades,” writes Diane T. Chin, associate dean for public service and public interest law, in the issue’s foreword.The issue contains five articles, all written by members of...

    I wrote a couple articles about Salon and their attempted justification of pedophilia. They ran posts from a guy named Todd Nickerson that tried to put a happy face on the depravity. Well, guess what? Now those articles have been removed. This is why you should always archive controversial articles from the mainstream media.

    A man suspected of killing a Whittier police officer in a shootout Monday, hours after slaying his cousin, was released from prison under a controversial program that many law enforcement agencies blame for an uptick in crime, authorities said. Michael Christopher Mejia, 26, of Los Angeles, was identified Tuesday by authorities as the suspect in the fatal shootings of Whittier police Officer Keith Boyer and 46-year-old Roy Torres, the suspect’s cousin.

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | February 21, 2017 | Chris Arnade in Youngstown, Ohio
    Anthony Rice’s house in Youngstown, Ohio is a mile away from a river valley once filled with factories offering jobs. Many of those left in the 1980s, and with them, many residents. His home is one of the few occupied on the street. Empty lots or boarded-up homes make up most of the block. He points to those remaining, listing his neighbors and their age. They are all over 70. “This neighborhood is okie-dokie, although not much goes down here”, he says. “Stores used to be all around here, but they mostly gone. The people left are either too old...

    Just when the Trump brand was teetering on the edge of no longer being the gold standard, along came TV producer, Mark Burnett. Burnett was the creator and chief architect of Survivor, the biggest of the TV reality shows that attracted viewers by the millions to watch beautiful people compete in exotic spots such as the Australian outback and the Polynesian islands. But Burnett's fabulous success couldn't mask one bit of unhappiness at the center of his life: he had little kids at home in New York and he was hardly ever there. "There has to be a way...

    The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who has refused Democratic requests to investigate possible conflicts of interest involving President Donald Trump, is seeking criminal charges against a former State Department employee who helped set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday asking him to convene a grand jury or charge Bryan Pagliano, the computer specialist who helped establish Clinton’s server while she was secretary of state. Pagliano did not comply with two subpoenas ordering him to appear before the oversight panel. The GOP-led committee...
