Many Americans first became aware of Antifa only in 2017, when some of its followers descended on Washington to protest President Donald Trump’s inauguration. They broke store windows, set fire to a limousine, and caused more than $100,000 in property damage.But Antifa is much older and broader than a mere reactionary movement opposed to President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrumps light 97th annual National Christmas Tree Trump to hold campaign rally in Michigan 'Don't mess with Mama': Pelosi's daughter tweets support following press conference comments MORE's administration.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Photo: Alex Wong/Getty Images Ever since Nancy Pelosi ascended to a position of leadership among House Democrats, her standing has been in a state of near-constant peril. Last year, Pelosi’s critics within the caucus had granted her a reprieve, promising to delay their next challenge to her leadership until after the midterm elections, with the implicit threat that she would be deposed if Democrats failed to win a majority. “She’s been authorized to provide leadership, good or bad, for the next two years,” said Representative Steve Lynch of Massachusetts, who challenged her after the 2016 failure, last summer. “I think in fairness we owe her that. We owe her two years.” Now Pelosi’s critics have renewed their threat to depose her even if Democrats do win the midterms. Axios reports, “Some well-wired House Democrats predict she will be forced aside after the election and replaced by a younger, less … [Read more...] about Nancy Pelosi Is Good at Her Job and She Should Keep It.
Former President Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail prior to midterms and criticized President Trump multiple times during a speech given in Illinois. Fox News reported on Obama’s fiery speech, stating several points the former president attempted to make. At one point, Obama said those in power or with privilege want to “keep us angry because it helps them keep their power and their privilege.” Later, he said this type of mindset did not begin with President Trump, but that the current president is a symptom.Obama continued, saying Trump is “just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.” Obama continued and addressed a tribe appeal that forces groups to go against each other. He specifically stated that “telling people that order and security will be restored if [it wasn’t] for those who don’t look like us or don’t sound like us or don’t pray like we do, that’s an old … [Read more...] about Obama Hits Campaign Trail, Goes Off On Trump: ‘We Can’t Just Put Walls Up All Around America’
(Madrid, Spain) — Meet the Anti -Greta. Her name is Naomi Seibt, she’s 19 years old, but unlike some teenage activists we could mention she is most definitely not welcome at the UN’s COP25 climate conference. That’s because she believes the global warming scare is a massive hoax.Worse — and being a German, she should know — Naomi believes that her Chancellor’s green policies are steering her country inexorably towards the kind of totalitarianism it last experienced in the 1930s and the 1940s. Naomi’s outspoken position on such issues as Angela Merkel’s disastrous immigration policy and climate change mark her as the kind of brave, independent-minded, intelligent teenager of whom any parent could be proud. Again, unlike some hatchet-faced, brainwashed, finger-wagging puppets of the climate industrial complex we could mention. The endless conspiracy theories and denial of facts.#ClimateCrisispic.twitter.com/fFGlCXWVqy — Greta … [Read more...] about WATCH: At the Madrid Climate Conference Delingpole Met Naomi, the Anti-Greta
The Columbia Journalism Review has long been considered an arbiter of the profession and a beacon of high standards in a business whose product can vary widely. But several recent controversies have shown their position may be slipping, and that their role as an impartial shot-caller is being compromised by its own business relationships and guidance on reportorial practice. As a magazine published by the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the CJR aims to “be the intellectual leader in the rapidly changing world of journalism,” according to their website, but has committed some big missteps in recent months, all of which involve their close relationships with liberal activist groups. Let’s take a look at them.Climate Change Coverage CJR helped lead and organize an effort to hype climate change and Greta Thunberg ahead of the 2019 climate summit. The initiative was called Covering Climate Now, and its various partners were asked to devote a full week to … [Read more...] about The Decline Of The Columbia Journalism Review
