UNLV dropped its mascot "Hey Reb!" but will keep the Rebels moniker, the school announced Tuesday. UNLV President Keith Whitfield said in a letter to students that the team has no plans on a new mascot. Over the summer, the team had removed the "Hey Reb!" statue on campus citing criticism that the mascot was rooted in racist ideology.

Can you image a cancel culture in the future where everything that the 21st century abortionists touched was erased and or rejected? What's worse, murdering babies you don't consider fully human or enslaving people that weren't considered fully human? In my heart I think they both knew and know better.

You get stuff like this in every university today. You also get an article in the Las Vegas Sun like this.The article didn’t bother to tell you that a poll taken about Hey Reb showed people were against the removal by about 65% to 35%. Again, the ignorants of the country are running it. 😡

My great great grandfather served in the Confederate Army of Texas. I don't think he ever did anything, and he was a very great man, because he had my grandfather, who had father, and thanks very much for it. I revere my ancestors, will never separate from them, and do not take any insults to my ancestors. Thank you.

At the office they call me Don Quixote — because I spend too much of my time as an art detective on wild goose chases. And my latest project, I have to admit, had all the hallmarks. I really had no idea what I was getting into. Certainly no inkling that it would involve not only Adolf Hitler but the Russian army, the East German secret police, present-day neo-Nazis and a sinister Far-Right organisation. It all started with a phone call in 2014 from Michel van Rijn, once a major player in the criminal art world and now supposedly straight — though one could never be 100 per cent sure.
Washington Post scrubbed unflattering
Kamala Harris story from site, restored it

The Washington Post removed an unflattering tidbit about Vice President Kamala Harris from a 2019 feature and republished a new version of the story that is friendlier to the Democratic media darling -- but eventually restored a link to the original after widespread backlash. Reason reporter Eric Boehm noticed the edit and took the Post to task in a scathing breakdown of the situation. [SNIP] Harris bizarrely compared the rigors of the campaign trail to…life behind bars. And then proceeded to laugh—at the idea of an inmate begging for a sip of water," Boehm wrote, calling it "an extremely cringeworthy moment" that painted Harris in a negative light.
Schumer says senators will decide if Trump

This going to be hard to live down. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer got a rise out of lawmakers on the Senate floor Friday when he fumbled his words and said that they will have to decide if former President Donald Trump incited the “erection” against the US. “Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the erection against the United States,” Schumer said. Noticing his boneheaded slip-up, he corrected himself and said “insurrection,” but that didn’t stop online wags from roasting him. “Well, sometimes insurrection is a HARD word to pronounce,” one Twitter user wrote.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill were momentarily left standing in the cold on Inauguration Day after the front doors of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue weren't opened for them – a breach of protocol caused by the firing of the chief usher of the White House hours earlier. With the world watching on, the 46th US President and his wife walked up the steps of their new home for the first time on Wednesday, as a small crowd of family members followed behind. [SNIP] They then embraced one another, before turning to venture on inside. But there was a problem: the doors didn’t open.

Google has threatened to remove its search engine from Australia over the nation's attempt to make the tech giant share royalties with news publishers. Australia is introducing a world-first law to make Google, Facebook and potentially other tech companies pay media outlets for their news content. But the US firms have fought back, warning the law would make them withdraw some of their services. Australian PM Scott Morrison said lawmakers would not yield to "threats". Though Australia is far from Google's largest market, the proposed news code is seen as a possible global test case for how governments could seek to regulate big tech firms.

A Tennessee mayor drew criticism for a Facebook message and a picture of the town’s American flag at half-staff on Inauguration Day. “While many critics accused him of trying to incite anger with the post, the mayor insisted that his post had nothing to do with Biden’s inauguration,” the Blaze reported Thursday. In his Facebook message, Robert T. Keeton III, mayor of Bruceton, wrote, “The Town of Bruceton grieves for our Republic and our loss of freedoms. We mourn the victims of the Chinese plague and those that have suffered its depredations.” “We pray that God delivers and restores us and that we do not fall to the clutches of communism.”

President Joe Biden is looking to the Justice Department to reinstate a controversial Obama-era practice that allowed prosecutors to make settlement agreements where defendants paid outside groups instead of the government or victims, according to a report. The Trump administration stopped these payments in 2017, as outlined in a Justice Department manual that initially came from a memo from former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people — not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in 2017.

There’s still plenty of time for President Biden to remember that he does not owe his election to the far left.” Mr. McConnell, who is negotiating a power-sharing agreement with Majority Leader Charles E.

A brave reporter asked Psaki if Joe Biden will keep Trump’s Air Force One color scheme. “This is such a good question!” Psaki said smiling. “I have not had the opportunity to dig into that today…”Rather than ask questions about the investigation into Hunter Biden’s money laundering scheme and how Joe Biden turned his son into a bagman, the reporters ask about paint.

America knew, within a couple of hours, the names of Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, Marc Chapman, Shirhan Shirhan, James Earl Ray, and James Hodgkinson. (Or did you already forget that James Hodgkinson shot House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and three others on a softball field, in an attempted mass assassination of members of the House GOP caucus?) But after searching the Internet for a few hours, there only remain questions, and no answers about Ashli’s shooting. My only assumption can be that the hard facts concerning the shooting are so egregious, and so threatening to the incoming Democratic Congress and new Biden Administration

Of course, this indicates a total lack of support due to the fact the election was stolen.A great report at BehindtheBlack.com compares the Biden inauguration to President Trump’s inauguration in 2017. The report provided the pictures above and says all you have to do is look at the pictures above to know Joe Biden didn’t win the election legitimately.

Clinton, the only child of Bill and Hillary Clinton, said she told her son Aidan that 'it's the 21st day of the 21st year in the 21st century'. Her son then responded immediately: 'Yeah, but it's cooler it's Joe Biden's first full day in the White House'.
