My New Hero: Kemi Badenoch

Featured image I did not know that the UK government has an official “Equalities Minister,” and that name sounds perfectly sinister and Orwellian. Regardless of whether such a ministry is a good idea, right now the Equalities Minister in Boris Johnson’s government is Kemi Badenoch, and this attack on “critical race theory” is so good that I want to amend the Constitution so she can come to the United States and run for »

NBA playoff viewership falls off the cliff

Featured image Ben Strauss of The Athletic takes a deep dive into the television ratings for this year’s NBA conference finals. He finds that the ratings themselves took a deep dive: [T]hese were two of the least-watched conference finals series ever, despite featuring the league’s most famous player (LeBron James) on the league’s most famous franchise (the Lakers). It happened despite Nielsen using “Out of Home” viewership for the first time ever »

BLM: Where Does the Money Go?

Featured image In recent months, the Black Lives Matter organization has raised hundreds of millions of dollars (possibly into the billions) from individual and corporate donations. One Minnesota businessman gave the group $25 million. What do they do with all that cash? The BLM web site doesn’t answer that question, nor does it even tell us what sort of a legal entity BLM is. You can donate here, but your contribution doesn’t »

Life In a Blue City

Featured image In the video below, filmed in Hollywood, a Prius driver is stopped by a mob of Antifa/BLM criminals. They try to haul him out of his car, but he gets away. They pursue him in multiple vehicles, and a pickup cuts him off. Again the criminals try to assault him, and again he saves his life by driving away. The video ends with the victim being arrested and handcuffed by »

Justice but no peace

Featured image The woke mob has spoken. The decision not to charge any officer with homicide in connection with the death of Breonna Taylor is an outrage. Lebron James, that great legal mind, says so. Let the rioting commence. Actually, it has. No justice, no peace. But was the charging decision in Louisville unjust? Andy McCarthy says it wasn’t. I agree. McCarthy explains: The cops [who fired the shots] were doing their »

More In-Kind Contributions to the Trump Campaign

Featured image Last night in St. Petersburg, Florida, BLM/Antifa thugs harassed people who were eating in local restaurants. This video shows just one such scene: Protestors are now going restaurant by restaurant to chant at diners on Beach Dr. in St. Pete. A lot of diners yelled back, starting multiple confrontations. This one was the most significant. Protestors took over a couple’s table. Not sure why they were targeted specifically. pic.twitter.com/dzLM7KuCW9 — »

Biden Voters Reportedly Attack Home of Trump Supporters in Minnesota

Featured image The Democrats’ vow to “burn everything down” if they don’t get their way is allegedly being fulfilled. Last night in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, unknown arsonists attacked the home of two Trump supporters, burning the family’s garage and several vehicles and destroying a large Trump sign in their yard: As shown in one of those photos, the arsonists apparently spray painted “Biden 2020,” “BLM” and the Antifa symbol on a garage »

Pittsburgh Steelers center honors fallen police officer

Featured image Last week, I discussed how the Pittsburgh Steelers were planning to honor Antwon Rose, a drive-by shooter, by wearing his name on their helmets. Initially, only Afghan war vet Alejandro Villanueva declined to go along with this plan. He announced that he would wear the name of Alwyn Cashe, an African-American who was killed in Iraq. But then, Maurkice Pouncey, the team’s star center, also balked. He admitted he should »

Leftists Trash Portland [Updated]

Featured image Last night, Antifa/BLM criminals (there no longer seems to be any distinction between the two organizations) ran riot in Portland for something like the 100th day in a row, stopping traffic, starting fires, and smashing and looting stores. There seems to be be little or no police presence in Portland, and no political will to restore order to the city before it becomes a dead zone. As always, Andy Ngo »

Steelers’ star: I should have done more research before honoring drive-by shooter

Featured image I wrote here about how the Pittsburgh Steelers will be honoring Antwon Rose, a drive-by shooting participant and probable shooter, by wearing his name on their helmets this season. Only one player — Afghan war vet Alejandro Villanueva — refused to go along with this nauseating decision. He will wear the name of a fallen warrior, Alwyn Cashe, an African-American who was killed in Iraq. Now, however, another player, star »

From a Minneapolis Principal, a Cry From the Heart

Featured image If you want to understand what is going on in Minneapolis, which is probably similar to what is happening in a number of leftist-run cities around the country, please take seven minutes to watch this video. It was made by the Principal of Minneapolis’s North High School, in modern times the most heavily black high school in the city. Her name is Mauri Melander Friestleben. The boy whose death she »

William Barr tells it like it is

Featured image Attorney General Barr spoke last night at Hillsdale College. The Washington Post labels Barr’s address “remarkable,” and I agree. It’s remarkable that a public official spoke in public as plainly and as truthfully as Barr did. Here are some of the comments that made the Post’s Devlin Barrett and Matt Zapotosky unhappy: In response to criticism that Barr is “interfering” by overruling the decisions of career prosecutors, the Attorney General »

NFL player bucks teammates by honoring vet, not drive-by shooter

Featured image Alejandro Villanueva plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is a military combat veteran, having served in Afghanistan. This season, all of the Steelers except for Villaneuva will wear the name of Antwon Rose on their helmets. Villaneuva intends to wear the name of Alwyn Cashe, instead. Cashe, a black man, was a U.S. Army sergeant. He died of injuries suffered in Iraq in 2005. Rose, also black, was a criminal. »

Lovely

Featured image Lovely Warren is the mayor of Rochester, New York. This week she fired the city’s African-American police chief, who, by Warren’s own account, had already resigned. According to the Washington Post, she fired him based on findings that “the police department did not take the death of Daniel Prude seriously enough and engaged in conduct that may have been designed to mislead the public.” (Emphasis added) The findings Mayor Warren »

Republican Campaign Aide Murdered In Minneapolis

Featured image Lacy Johnson is the Republican who is challenging Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th District. Lacy is an excellent candidate fighting an uphill battle. Last night, two of his campaign volunteers were shot in North Minneapolis. The local CBS outlet has the story: The 17-year-old boy killed and another man hurt Monday in a north Minneapolis shooting were members of a Republican congressional candidate’s campaign. The Lacy Johnson campaign says the »

A Day Brightener

Featured image In Sacramento, several police cruisers apparently were responding to an emergency with their sirens blaring. A group of Black Lives Matter activists apparently thought that their inalienable rights include the right to prevent police officers from doing their jobs. A group of BLMers surrounded one of the police cars in an effort to immobilize it, while one of them jumped onto the hood. It didn’t end well. I especially enjoy »

Officers Shot In Compton [Updated]

Featured image Two deputy sheriffs in Compton, California were shot last night by a man who approached their squad car while it was parked on the street, and opened fire: Update: The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation. pic.twitter.com/cBQjyKkoxJ — LA County Sheriffs (@LASDHQ) September 13, 2020 The deputies are a 31-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man. Both were shot multiple times and are in »
