U. of Michigan Dearborn Hosts Racially Segregated ‘BIPOC’ and ‘Non-POC’ Events

The University of Michigan-Dearborn hosted racially segregated events on Tuesday, one for “Non-POC,” and the other for “BIPOC” (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) students. During the two racially segregated “cafes,” the groups were encouraged to “discuss their experience as students on campus.” The university now says that it “sincerely regrets” describing the cafes as “Non-POC” and “BIPOC” events.

“The Non-POC (People Of Color) Cafe is a space for students that do not identify as persons of color to gather and to discuss their experience as students on campus and as non-POC in the world,” read the event description on the university’s website. Although the university has since pulled the relevant pages off their website, archives of the information pages exist.

“Feel free to drop in and discuss your experiences as non-persons of color and hopefully brainstorm solutions to common issues within the non-POC community,” added the description.

The school’s website went on to explain that the “non-POC” event will not be the only of its kind, and will appear as a bi-monthly event, occurring on the first Tuesday of every other month.

“The Cafe will be facilitated by a non-POC faculty/staff member to ensure that discussions are kept safe and respectful,” the description added.

Conversely, the school also hosted a “BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color) Cafe on Tuesday. Read more…

Tucker Carlson Releases Damning Audio of CNN President Jeff Zucker

Fox News host Tucker Carlson discussed a reportedly recorded 2016 conversation between CNN president Jeff Zucker and then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen in a Tuesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” exclusive.

The conversation, reportedly recorded in March 2016 as then-candidate Donald Trump was vying for the Republican presidential nomination, featured the two friends discussing Trump’s candidacy and even the possibility of a regular CNN show.

“On March 10, 2016, that was the day of the final Republican primary debate, Cohen called Jeff Zucker on his cell phone,” Carlson said. “CNN was hosting the debate that night in Miami, and Cohen, who was working for Donald Trump at the time, wanted to check in about it. Zucker almost immediately started bragging about himself, as he is wont to do.”

“After a few pro forma words about their families, Zucker launched into an extended lecture about about his own importance,” he continued. “‘Here’s the thing,’ Zucker announced to Cohen, ‘you cannot be elected president of the United States without CNN. Fox and MSNBC are irrelevant — irrelevant — in electing a general election candidate.’”

Carlson said Zucker told Cohen that the campaign has “had great instincts, great guts and great understanding of everything, but you’re missing the boat on how it works going forward.” Read more…

AG Barr: Operation Legend Causes Chicago’s Murder Rate to Decrease Almost 50 Percent

The federal government through Operation Legend has “reversed” Chicago’s surge in violence, making more than 500 arrests and charging 124 people with federal criminal charges, officials announced.

U.S. Attorney William Barr said during a Wednesday morning press conference that the federal program had helped decrease Chicago’s murder rate to the lowest it’s been “at any time” since April, cutting the rate “roughly in half since before the operation.”

“The results of those actions speak for themselves: over the first five weeks of Operation Legend in Chicago, murders dropped by 50% over the previous five weeks. August ultimately saw a 45% decrease in murders compared to July, and a 35% decrease compared to June,” he said.

At least 400 federal agents have been assigned to the Illinois city as part of Operation Legend – roughly 200 of whom were already working there, but whose roles were repurposed, and the remainder being deployed from elsewhere – and over one-thousand in total have been dispatched nationwide.

Throughout the country, more than 2500 people have been arrested and more than 600 are facing federal charges as part of the operation, an ongoing government effort to combat surging crime in parts of the country, officials announced Wednesday. Read more…

Sick: What Kamala Harris Told Accused Sex Offender Jacob Blake Is Disgusting

The Democrats will lionize anyone they think they can use to score political points with their radical base.

They don’t even lose a wink of sleep over any blatant hypocrisy or double-standards they may apply in the process.

If Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), vice-presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, didn’t have double-standards, however, she’d have none at all.

This woman, who openly claimed she believed Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford when it was politically advantageous to do so, told accused sex offender Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she was “proud of him.”

Why? Because Blake was shot seven times by police officers while reportedly trying to reach for a weapon after the officers responded to a domestic dispute in which Blake refused to give his accuser her keys back.

Apparently, being shot by police officers absolves a man of all his alleged crimes, in Harris’ eyes.

14 Texas Towns Have Outlawed Abortion. This West Texas City May Be Next

Lubbock may soon be the 15th and largest city in Texas to become a “sanctuary city for the unborn” and outlaw abortion, pending the decision of the mayor and city council.

Several state lawmakers and local activists have been pushing the city to adopt an ordinance essentially banning abortion as the abortion provider Planned Parenthood moves forward with plans to open a new clinic in the city.

“The fact that ‘the outlawing of abortion within the city limits’ is even being discussed as an option for the City of Lubbock shows just how far the Sanctuary City for the Unborn movement has come,” Right to Life of East Texas Director Mark Dickson told The Daily Wire in an email. “What started in a city of 2,189 is now being entertained in a city of about 300,000.”

Dickson is the founder of the Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn Initiative and the author of the proposed ordinance. State Sen. Charles Perry and state Reps. Dustin Burrows and John Frullo, all Republicans representing the Lubbock area, sent a letter to the city’s GOP mayor, Dan Pope, and the city council in August urging them to adopt Dickson’s ordinance.

Ilhan Omar Endorses Riots – Calls Them an “Uprising”

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) released a video Sunday that described more than three months of riots as an “uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression.”

Yes, there’s so much racial oppression and neglect in America, a Muslim immigrant from Somalia can be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in a state called Minnesota.

“As we speak, we are in the midst of an ongoing uprising over centuries of racial neglect and oppression,” she said while collecting a six-figure salary from a position of enormous power and influence granted to her by a Midwestern state.

“We can’t talk about the protests in Minneapolis or Kenosha … without first looking inward,” she continued.

Then she just started lying…

“We maintain a system that binds millions to desperate poverty, a system that doesn’t provide the most basic necessities, like food, shelter, and medicines,” she added.

“Whether they are brutalized by police, by austerity economics, or by politicians who simply do not care about us, our nation is crying out desperately for change. We need to fundamentally change the way our society treats its most vulnerable because this has gone [on] long enough.”

You know what? Let’s give her some credit for calling this three-plus month terror campaign at the hands of the terrorists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa what it is — an uprising. Read more…

NY Mayor Bill de Blasio Defunded Police. More New Yorkers Keep Dying For It.

Back in early June, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio proudly crowed about shifting $1 billion from the NYPD to other parts of the city’s budget. “We think it’s the right thing to do,” de Blasio said. His activist wife, Chirlane McCray, said she saw a “world without police” as “Nirvana.”

Violent crime in New York was already surging by that point. The reasons come down to policy. As I wrote back in mid-June:

New York’s crime increase cannot be blamed on increasing population. The city has been noticeably losing residents for close to a year. In the halcyon pre-plague days of Sept. 2019, New Yorkers were leaving because they’d voted in very expensive public policy and then decided to leave without paying the tab. Plus crime was already starting to creep up.

New York’s population loss has accelerated as COVID restrictions persuaded many residents to seek a freer life elsewhere, and crime made the streets more dangerous. Businesses shuttered thanks either to COVID or the unchecked riots, removing thousands of jobs from the city.

Violent crime starting increasing in New York right around the time de Blasio unleashed a couple of his other brainchildren on the city: bail reform and disbanding the plainclothes anti-crime unit. The former put criminals right back onto the streets after police nabbed them. The latter made it even less likely police would nab them in the first place. The two actions together empowered criminals citywide.

Then de Blasio responded to far-left activists’ calls, in the hothouse environment right after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, to defund police.

And a few months later, here’s New York in the grips of an escalating violent crime wave. Read more…

Facebook to Block New Political Ads the Week Before the Election

Social media giant Facebook has announced plans to ban new political ads for the week leading up to Election Day on November 3. Mark Zuckerberg announced the ban along with several other changes because he fears “there could be an increased risk of civil unrest across the country.”

NBC News reports that Facebook has announced plans to ban new political ads in the week leading up to Election Day on November 3. The site will also remove posts that try to suppress or discourage voting according to company CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The decision aims to prevent campaigns and their supporters from making early claims of victory. The announcement is part of series of actions taken by Facebook to address concerns about how the social media site could be used to manipulate the election and includes a warning from Zuckerberg about potential unrest around the U.S. related to the election.

In a note to staff members, Zuckerberg wrote: “The U.S. elections are just two months away, and with Covid-19 affecting communities across the country, I’m concerned about the challenges people could face when voting. I’m also worried that with our nation so divided and election results potentially taking days or even weeks to be finalized, there could be an increased risk of civil unrest across the country.” Read more…

Trump Orders All-Department Review in Effort to Defund New York City

Donald Trump has signed a memo directing all executive departments to examine ways to defund New York City and several other cities.

In addition to New York, Washington, D.C., Portland, and Seattle have been singled out to be defunded. All of those cities are run by Democratic mayors who appeared to side with the violent protesters and refused to enforce the law and keep order.

Trump’s rationale for defunding the cities will play very well among his supporters.

New York Post:

“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump says in the memo, which twice mentions New York Mayor Bill de Blasio by name.

“To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.” Read more…

Antifa Drives Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler Out of His Home

The race for Worst Mayor in the United States is starting to heat up. There are a lot of contenders: de Blasio, Garcetti, Lightfoot, Durkan, Frey, Bottoms… They’re all bad public servants and even worse liars. Most mayors only disappoint and infuriate their own citizens, but these select few keep pissing off the whole world. Now there’s a dark horse in the race, and he’s moving up fast. He might not be running the biggest city in the country, but right now it’s one of the most violent. And he has absolutely no idea what to do about the chaos and destruction within his city limits, because his liberal ideas about the world haven’t prepared him for it. Of course, I’m talking about Ted Wheeler, the mayor of Portland, Oregon.

For the past three months, Portland has been the scene of nightly riots. When the sun goes down, antifa and BLM show up to break things, set fires, and beat people up. Now they’ve graduated to murder. And how does Wheeler respond?

Well, that oughta do it. Those rioters simply didn’t know they were inconveniencing anyone. They just needed to be told they’re doing the wrong thing. Now that they’ve seen Mayor Wheeler’s heartfelt social media posts, I’m sure they’ll knock it off already.

Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, these antifa scumbags just proved that capitulating to them doesn’t work. If you coddle them, they just see it as a sign of weakness and redouble their efforts against you. Read more…
