Leftist “Antifa” protesters stormed a county government building in Minnesota, seized and burned the county flag - then replaced it with an Antifa flag - on Monday.

After left-wing protesters marched through downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota in response to last weekend’s demonstrations in Charlottesville, Virginia, they hoisted the flag of the violent left-wing group “Antifa,” raising it in front of the county’s government center.—More…

California Bill: 1 Year in Jail for Using Wrong Transgender Pronoun

A new bill being considered by the California State Senate would punish people who “willfully and repeatedly” refuse “to use a transgender resident’s preferred name or pronouns” in a public health, retirement or housing institution.

The bill, SB 219, was proposed by State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco). It includes several other provisions that require a health facility, for example, to honor the gender identity of a patient, meaning that the patient must be admitted to a room that comports with his or her chosen gender; allowed to use whatever bathroom he or she wants to use; and wear whatever clothing or cosmetics he or she decides to wear. It has gone through several amendments.—More…

Charlottesville Arrest Records Show Trump Correct

President Donald J. Trump stood before journalists on Tuesday and said the unsayable: “I think there is blame on both sides.”

Rather than denounce only the execrable white supremacists and swastika-wielding neo-Nazis who organized Saturday’s hate-o-rama in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump observed that there was violence coming from the KKK side and from extreme Leftists who opposed them with force — not with tranquility, as did those at a peaceful vigil Wednesday night.—More…

The Algemeiner reports: JNS.org – Israel’s Shin Bet security agency on Tuesday unveiled the discovery of a complex money-transferring scheme run by the Gaza-ruling Palestinian terror group Hamas.

At least $30,000 in cash and a vehicle were seized in the raids.—More…

Media plead ignorance of the ‘alt-left’

Members of the national media are disputing President Trump’s decision to blame the “alt-left” for engaging in acts of violence, and many say there is no such thing even though the term has been used for months.

Trump said in a Tuesday press conference that “both sides” bear some of the blame for the violence at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Va., and asked why reporters were ignoring reports that the “alt-left ... came charging at the ... alt-right.”—More…

Court ‘big mouth’ butt-dials reporter, admits he barely shows up for $166K job

Rabbi who oversaw Ivanka Trump’s conversion to Judaism is ‘deeply troubled’ by Trump’s Charlottesvil

The rabbi who oversaw Ivanka Trump’s conversion to Judaism has co-written a scathing letter to his congregation about President Trump’s response to the deadly unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

Where Is the Corporate Disavowal of Black Lives Matter?

Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump’s manufacturing advisory council. Good riddance.

These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers, and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum.—More…

House Dems Offer Resolution To Censure Trump Over Charlottesville Remarks

A clever play to exploit the tensions between Trump and the congressional GOP as the media floods the zone about Trump’s press conference. Reporters will descend on House Republicans to ask them if they think a censure is in order. If they say yes, the pro-Trump Republican base will go berserk. If they say no, Democrats will cite it as “proof” that Republicans agree with him about the alt-right.

The odds of a formal censure must be south of 10 percent, although let’s see what polling on presidential job approval looks like next week. It ain’t good now, but next week probably won’t be much different. Probably. In any case, if something did pass the House, it wouldn’t read anything like Jerrold Nadler’s fantasy here:—More…

NY Times Reporter Admits Antifa Protesters In Charlottesville Were ‘Hate-Filled’ And Violent Before

New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg made the mistake of admitting that along with the abhorrent, violent, white supremacists who terrorized Charlottesville over the weekend, many Antifa protesters were also enacting “hate-filled” violence, as they’ve done in several other cities in recent months. For noting that the “hard left seemed as hate-filled as the alt-right” — citing “club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park” — Stolberg was hammered online, even after repenting and issuing a correction that depicted the violent left in more heroic terms.

“A few wrap-it-up thoughts from Charlottesville: 1. Striking how many of the white nationalists were young people, almost entirely men,” she wrote in a series of tweets Sunday. “2. The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park[.] 3. Among my unanswered questions: police response. Why did things get out of hand so quickly? Could violence have been prevented?”—More…
