New York City Mayor has announced that five streets in each borough will be renamed after prominent leaders in the black community in honor of the Black Lives Matter movement. Bill de Blasio revealed the plans for the Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens and Brooklyn after a Sunday meeting with activists–including Gwen Carr–the mother of Eric Garner who was killed when NYPD put him in a choke hold in 2014. The names of the leaders have not yet been revealed.(Snip) 'It's time to do something officially representing this city,' de Blasio said in a Tuesday press briefing. 'To represent the fundamental power

He's just grovelling, aye pandering to try and keep the Blacks down on the Democrat plantation. It's something like "tote that barge, lift that bale....etc." and be sure to remember your Democrat slave master on voting day. Or how about letting them off the plantation and off the government teat so they can move out of those covid 19 public housing hell holes and be contributing members of society and have decent home and decent education for their children? But then they might vote Republican, the party of Lincoln who got them out of slavery the first time.

Kaiser Illhelm invents a new political display: the MauMau Kowtow. And why not rename New York. After all, it is named after the city of York England...a center for the Viking slavers. OOPS, those slaves were white. White slaves...is that even a thing?

Why not just rename New York City “Black Lives Matter City”. That would cover the whole kit and caboodle. Since people from York, England during the days of the old British Empire were obviously somehow connected to the slave trade, who in this day and age could oppose de Blasio doing that?

I've never been to New York an am not familiar with neighborhoods except for what I've learned through reading and movies. I'm looking forward to the street name recommendations from posters who do know. This brave act by DiBlasio is certain to relieve all tensions and cause an outbreak of peace and brotherhood. (I probably shouldn't use that word)

Renaming, destroying and occupying is what invading armies do after planting their flags. The riots are seen as battles and terrorism is now an acceptable strategy. The mayors and governors of blue states have surrendered. We may not think we’re at war with them but the radical left thinks they are at war with us. Those of us who came of age before 1968 have watched this whole thing play out over several decades. Communists, SDS, The Weather Underground, Occupy Wall Street, the Black Panthers, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dorn, etc. are still here, some under different names.

Kind of interesting that by adding an "o" in front of "lives" you can make it say "black olives matter" and by making the "v" in "lives" into an "m" by adding two vertical lines you can make it say "black limes matter." I wonder if anyone will be tempted. When I was an adolescent in the 70s I would have been SO tempted and it would have been for fun, not for ideology.

Watch the movie BLACK LEGION 1937 with Humphrey Bogart. It relates the story of the Black Legion which uses the same tactics as Black Lives Matter. It's just like the KKK and just as backed by the D'Rats. Black Lives Matter has nothing good for Blacks. . . Check out their website,

There is a New Yorker whom I revere but I doubt de Blasio ever heard of him. Pierre Toussaint was born into slavery in Haiti. The Berard family who owned him, left when the revolution began by Toussaint L'Ouverture began to ravage the island and relocated to New York City. Berard lost everything and died soon after. Pierre supported his widow from his job as a hairdresser. He was VERY popular with the upper class ladies and became a wealthy man. He supported job training for orphaned black children, gave generously to the Catholic church - he went to Mass daily and was a well respected philanthropist. He deserves to have a street named after him, but knowing de Blasio's mindset, it will probably be some drag queen.

Nelson's Column is the latest target of anti-racism campaigners who want it torn down over links to the slave trade. The Royal Navy hero is included in a hit-list of 60 statues on a "topple the racists" website listing memorials across the UK that activists say "celebrate slavery and racism".(Snip) The calls come after a statue of Edward Colston was toppled and thrown into the River Avon by Black Lives Matters (BLM) protesters in Brisol. And a statue of slave owner Robert Milligan was removed from London's Docklands on Tuesday evening. Nelson’s column was erected in 1840 in honour of Horatio Nelson,

The US economy will shrink by 6.5% this year, the Federal Reserve has forecast, announcing it would keep interest rates close to zero into 2022. The US central bank’s moves come as the economy struggles with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. However, the Fed expects the US economy will return to growth in 2021, with unemployment falling to 9.3% and GDP increasing 5%, followed by 3.5% growth in 2022. “The ongoing public health crisis will weigh heavily on economic activity, employment, and inflation in the near term, and poses considerable risks to the economic outlook over the medium term,” it said in a statement.

Photos and videos posted on Twitter showed a demonstrator taking a sledgehammer to the head of one of the statues on the Portsmouth Confederate monument, which was built in the late 1800s and is said to sit at a site where slaves were whipped. The Portsmouth City Council had set a July 28 hearing to decide on the monument’s fate following demands that it be moved, according to local outlet 13News Now. But protesters took matters into their own hands, gathering at the monument and

'The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars,' the president continued. 'Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,' Trump said.

A professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, says he was suspended from his job after refusing a student’s request to effectively cancel final exams for black students amid protests over the death of George Floyd. “I have been placed on involuntary leave for three weeks, and it looks like it may end up being more than that,” Gordon Klein, who teaches accounting at the school, told The Post. Klein—whom students slammed as “racist” and “dismissive”—was also placed under police protection at his Malibu home after receiving threats from critics furious over the email exchange, the Free Beacon reported. The controversy began

Just as the Islamic State (ISIS) claimed territory in Iraq and Syria, antifa militants have claimed territory in Seattle, Wash. According to reports on the ground from The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo and Townhall’s Julio Rosas, protesters and antifa instigators have seized land in the Capitol Hill area around the Seattle Police East Precinct. Like ISIS, the rioters appear to have decided on setting up a government in their occupied territory, naming it “Free Capitol Hill.” “Seattle [Mayor Jenny Durkan] is allowing a dangerous situation to fester. [Antifa] militants have taken over & created an ‘autonomous zone’ in city w/their own rules. Police precinct abandoned.

NASCAR is finally showing a red flag to the Confederate flag. In a major move for the sport of stock-car racing, NASCAR announced it is banning the Confederate flag. “The presence of the confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry," NASCAR said in a statement on Wednesday. “Bringing people together around a love for racing and community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the Confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.”

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis called George Floyd by name, twice, and offered support to an American bishop who knelt in prayer during a Black Lives Matter protest. (Snip) Francis “wants to send a very clear message to these conservative Catholics here who are pro-Trumpers that, ‘Listen, this is just as much of an issue as abortion is,’” said Anthea Butler, a presidential visiting fellow at Yale Divinity School. Butler, who is African American, said the Vatican is telling Catholics “to pay attention to the racism that is happening and the racism that is in your own church in America.
Absolute Mayhem: Cornel West

Cornel West and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell were supposed to have a civil segment on defunding the police, urban violence, and Democratic incompetence at addressing these issues, but things went off the hinges almost immediately. It was absolute mayhem on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Hannity prefaced the segment about the Democrats’ inability to govern, which was interrupted by West. The shouting began almost immediately. Terrell hit back at West for just recycling old Democratic talking points. He then tried to have a discussion with West, “black man to black man,” which West did not take well at all.

Have you heard that a six-block section of Seattle has become an anarchist “capitol hill autonomous zone,” or “CHAZ” for short? It has. Police and firefighters vacated their premises and bugged out with a Twitter blessing from Mayor Jenny Durkan. Durkan dithered over the descent of protests into violence for a week before doing much, and when she did much, her choice was to tweet in hasty retreat. Anarchists quickly set up CHAZ to be and do its own thing, as long as that thing conformed with diktats of the CHAZ hierarchy. They put up makeshift signs saying, “You are now leaving the U.S.A.”

Tuesday on MSNBC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she is ignoring President Donald Trump because she believes he “doesn’t have anything to do with the reality of the situation.”Host Stephanie Ruhle asked, “When you talk about racial justice, national security, these are issues that matter to all Americans. The way the president is saying it, these are liberal rules, as though you’re trying to create a lawless society. That’s obviously not what you are doing. So when you look at the term defunding the police, how do you define it?”Pelosi said, “Well, first of all, I don’t pay that much attention to what the president sa

Seattle has been making big news in the last couple of days. The first major story emerged Tuesday when police ceded an entire neighborhood to Antifa and Black Lives Matter, representatives of which barricaded a large segment of the Capitol Hill neighborhood and declared the area an “autonomous” community, separate from Seattle itself. The second newsworthy story occurred when thousands of leftist protesters led by Black Lives Matter and Antifa entered City Hall shortly after midnight on Wednesday, demanding that Mayor Jenny Durkan (a Democrat) resign.

“Romney didn’t win, did he?” That was former Senate Democratic majority leader Harry Reid’s response to whether he regretted lying about then-GOP presidential nominee — and now Utah senator — Mitt Romney. Reid accused Romney on the Senate floor in 2012, when he was running for president, of not having paid any taxes in four years. It was absolutely untrue and was discredited by Washington Post fact-checkers and others at the time. But that didn’t stop the onslaught of unfair and inaccurate accusations and innuendos.
