Saturday, a Students for Life leader and a few other peers were peacefully praying and counseling women outside of a Roanoke, Virginia, Planned Parenthood facility when one of them was assaulted due to her stance on abortion.
At around 8:30AM EST, Purity Thomas, a Students for Life of America high school fellow, and three pro-life group members from Liberty University were speaking to people in the park outside of the Roanoke Planned Parenthood facility in a public grassy area where the volunteers usually meet.
The students gather weekly and pray for and counsel women while also offering resources and various forms of support to mothers aside from abortion.
Witnesses reported that a woman confronted the group and began threatening them, claiming she would “f*ck them up”. In the video, which you can watch below, the young girl is approached and then assaulted:
The first encounter with the woman began when she stole one of the demonstrators’ signs, which read: “All people are made in the image of God” and following that incident, the students began filming the altercation. The woman left for a moment but returned with the intention of stealing another sign before assaulting a 15-year-old high school student, causing her to fall to the ground.
Police reports have been filed and the assailant has been spoken to.
Kristan Hawkins, the President of Students for Life of America, commented:
“This act of violence against a group of peaceful pro-life students who were outside a Planned Parenthood offering love and support to pregnant women serves as a sad reflection on the state of debate today. It’s horrific that a minor expressing love for pregnant women was targeted for violence. But this is not an isolated incident. Across the country we are witnessing a rise in the number of incidents of vandalism and violence against peaceful pro-life speech. Even the American Bar Association is demonizing pro-life speech, trying to block pro-life attorneys from taking a seat on the bench. We pray that the assailant from today’s attack is brought to justice swiftly. But we also pray for the protection of those who volunteer their time to speak for the innocent, preborn infants and their mothers.”

Saturday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reacted to a San Francisco jury finding Jose Ines Garcia Zarate not guilty for the death of Kate Steinle, attributing Steinle’s “unnecessary” death to the city’s sanctuary city policy. “Kate Steinle would not have died had we simply avoided these sanctuary cities, enforced our existing law,” Huckabee explained. “What a tragedy and an unnecessary one. It’s just impossible not to be heartbroken over her death and this absolutely absurd judgment that came down from San Francisco this week.” Huckabee then said the jury’s “absurd” decision is the result of the judge disallowing Zarate’s past deportations as evidence. “Those are the things the jury should have known,” he argued.

VIA LIBERTY HANGOUT, Joseph Gatti writes:
Lucian Wintrich appeared at the University of Connecticut Tuesday night to present his lecture on Identity Politics. The young White House correspondent was met with an aggressive crowd of hecklers bent on taking his event down. Protesters began to migrate toward the Andre Schenker Lecture hall where Lucian was planned to speak after last-minute arrangements to increase the capacity of the event. The building was at full capacity the moment the doors opened as hecklers came in by the hundreds.
Lucian’s speech was about identity politics and how they establish a racist dialogue in politics. Lucian’s speech condemns racism and calls for an end of personal victim-hood on both sides of the spectrum from the far right to the far left. You can read his full speech here.
This didn’t stop the far left mob from calling him a racist though. The Uconn College Republicans who hosted Lucian posted the full live-stream of the event to their Facebook page. At 11:34 into the live stream, you can hear the hecklers chanting “go home Nazi” over his speech. This is the very same speech mind you that Lucian condemns alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer and tells conservatives to stay away from the alt-right.
“I don’t agree with Richard Spencer, I think he’s a moron, and a racial collectivist, which is totally the opposite of conservatism. He’s not right-wing, and, of course, he’s an actual racist.” – Wintrich
“Now I don’t want you running off and joining the alt-right. As conservatives, we should all reject white nationalism on principle. It’s collectivist for all the wrong reasons and it’s anti-capitalist. It says race is more important than the individual and doesn’t want competition from other races.” –Wintrich
“So, on a strangely progressive note, I urge you … Go out and be anti-racists.” –Wintrich
At this point in the night, the crowd was done with testing Lucian and the seriousness of the security company contracted to keep him safe. The hecklers decided to all get up and walk out of the event. While protesters started to leave, Catherine Gregory, a former professor and current adviser at Quinebaug Valley Community College, walked right up to Lucian’s podium and stole his speech. Security did nothing to prevent this, they did, however, move to help arrest Lucian for attempting to retrieve his property. Lucian was charged with “Breach of Peace in the second degree” while the woman who stole his speech wasn’t charged with anything.
Catherine Gregory’s lawyer said on Thursday that she stands by taking Lucian’s speech. Quinebaug Valley Community College later learned about Gregory’s involvement when it was reported, and then issued this statement standing by Gregory.
“The College does not condone the behavior and encourages peaceful discourse and compassionate debate. The employee attended the event as a private citizen.’’
It was very upsetting that security allowed this to happen. According to the Hartford Courant, Lucian said that:
“police had assured him they would not let the event get out of control and ‘were going to keep lines of defense’ around him. But when he asked officers to remove some of the rowdier members of the audience, they did nothing.”
A visitor wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hoodie and a hat volunteered to stand on stage to help keep Lucian safe, but that clearly wasn’t enough. It comes as no surprise that the head of security for the event was a leftist who was caught bragging on his Facebook about not protecting Wintrich.
Mark Loomis, the head of security went further and made fun of Lucian’s sexuality.
“Lucian is very effeminate. That’s cool – I know gender is a spectrum. But I just wonder if he is one of those self – hating gay Republicans who is in the closet or denial.” –Loomis
Loomis, whose Facebook profile is loaded with very left opinions and cruel insults to the conservative’s closing remarks at Tuesday’s events are however the most infuriating.
“It was really striking to see in person what a pointless, worthless infantile position this person was taking, and it was gratifying to see the immensity of the opposition to it. But then I remembered how much support this nonsense has in some parts of the country, and I could only shake my head.” – Loomis
On top of all of this, leftists have taken to the Uconn College Republican’s facebook page to lash out at the organization for inviting Lucian Wintrich. The College Republicans are currently sitting at 2.1 stars with students calling for repercussions to the organization. On Friday, leftist students marched on campus hoping to submit a list of demands to the university to bar the school from allowing people like Wintrich to speak on campus. Lastly, a meeting of healing was held to reconcile students bothered by Wintrich’s speech.
There is no doubt that these mobilizations to have the Uconn college Republicans penalized and to demand the University of Connecticut to prevent people like Wintrich from speaking on campus are in direct violation of free speech. These people artfully smeared Wintrich, creating a false narrative that he was speaking about white supremacy like they have done with other conservative speakers such as Ben Shapiro.
The truth is they don’t want dialogue. Looking through Wintrich’s speech, it’s painfully obvious he isn’t a white supremacist. These people just want to silence conservative voices on college campuses, and they’re willing to do so by any means. A student broke a window in the building Wintrich was speaking in, and another heckler threw a smoke bomb inside.
Now is as great of a time as ever to make sure our first amendment rights aren’t discarded because of the false accusations and criminal activity of agitators. The Uconn College Republicans were entirely within their rights to host Wintrich, and it’s a shame that many are attempting to have their organization shut down. Give their Facebook page a like and a good review to show your support for free speech.

President Trump took to Twitter Saturday evening to rage about the injustice of Michael Flynn’s life getting destroyed for making false statements to the FBI, while Hillary Clinton remains free after a rigged email investigation.
“So General Flynn lies to the FBI and his life is destroyed, while Crooked Hillary Clinton, on that now famous FBI holiday “interrogation” with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times…and nothing happens to her? Rigged system, or just a double standard?” President Trump tweeted Saturday evening.

Moments later, President Trump suggested Attorney General Jeff Sessions investigate Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
“Many people in our Country are asking what the ‘Justice’ Department is going to do about the fact that totally Crooked Hillary, AFTER receiving a subpoena from the United States Congress, deleted and “acid washed” 33,000 Emails? No justice!”

After raging about Flynn and Clinton, President Trump took aim at the fake news media.
“Congratulations to @ABC News for suspending Brian Ross for his horrendously inaccurate and dishonest report on the Russia, Russia, Russia Witch Hunt. More Networks and “papers” should do the same with their Fake News!”

Disgraced Matt Lauer was fired from NBC News Wednesday after multiple claims of sexual harassment surfaced…
Lauer’s contract with NBC called for him to be paid tens of millions of dollars upon leaving The Today Show but NBC doesn’t expect to pay it now that he’s been fired. Last week, headlines claimed that Lauer’s lawers are trying to get him his estimated $30M payout from NBC.
However, in a memo on Friday, NBC News chairman, Andy Lack said NBCUniversal would conduct a review of Lauer’s behavior and would strengthen its internal processes so staffers wouldn’t feel intimidated coming forward with allegations of misconduct.
It seems although Lauer’s lawyers will try their best to get his payout, NBC News isn’t budging. Lack, pledging to hold an open forum for any abused NBC staffers, would send an opposite message if he paid out $30M to Lauer – who has been totally exposed and outed as a creep.
In total, five women have come forward so far to tell of harassment and abuse acted upon by Lauer. Notably, Matt Lauer also had a button under his desk that he could use to lock and unlock his office door. But get this, an NBC insider added that Lauer’s secret button wasn’t the only one at NBC’s 30 Rock Studios – a executive producer of The Today Show also had one!
In a statement, Lauer said he was “truly sorry” for the pain he has caused.
Sure, Lauer is very sorry now that he’s been exposed but were he truly apologetic of his actions, he would have realized the pain and trauma he was causing and stopped his toxic behavior. Instead, he continued to abuse staffers with no regard of their feelings… were he not ousted, he would still probably be abusing and manipulating his position at NBC. Lauer is only “truly sorry” because he got caught – period.

Here’s the lesson of the day for everyone:
Trickle-Down Economic Theory is a hoax in this day and age.
By making a bunch of corporate vermin (many of whom relish the thought of financially crucifying us) and Jews happier and richer, you’re still not going to suddenly bring the average White Man back from the brink of destitution.
There are too many variables at work to make such a theory viable – think outsourcing, lower wages, and rising benefits prices.
It may seem like common sense to many Nationalists, although to the Cuckservative, such logic is either unattainable, or just a bit too uncomfortable.
The New York Federal Reserve’s tool for forecasting gross domestic product (GDP) hit its highest point ever on Friday, pointing to a fourth-quarter GDP growth of 3.93 percent.
The number is so high that the New York Fed’s “Nowcasting Report” had to be rescaled to allow for such a high reading. Prior to the most recent quarter, the Nowcast has never before predicted GDP above 3.2 percent and rarely ever above 3 percent.
The Nowcast uses the most recent economic figures to try to get a real-time reading of economic output. It is updated weekly. Last week’s number was pushed up by good news about employment, inventories, and new home sales. Low inflation was a drag on the number.
The message from the New York Fed is simple: the economy is booming.
The economy has grown at greater than 3 percent for every full quarter that Donald Trump has been president. It grew at just 1.24 percent in the first quarter of the year as the country transitioned from the Obama administration to the Trump administration.
A 3.9 percent growth rate is far higher than economists forecasted when surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE). Despite signs that the economy had strengthened, most saw the economy slowing down at the end of the year.
If you can remember, I’ve talked briefly at times about how you can essentially manipulate the economy to show growth through mass immigration (Gross GDP will almost always rise with population increases), and through the implementation of seasonal employment (many hotel chains and companies like Walmart and Target are famous for this sort of thing).
With these measures, you can suddenly proclaim to the world that the American economy has never been stronger, and MAGA has at last hit home – never mind that we don’t have even the beginnings of a wall, sanctuary cities still remain untouched, and bills like Kate’s Law remain indefinitely stalled in Congress.
And let’s not even talk about the fact that yet again, we have many working-class White families struggling to make ends meet with Christmas just around the corner.
‘One of the Greatest in the History of the World’: Lewandowski Book Reveals Epic Trump Takedown of Manafort
Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie’s new book “Let Trump Be Trump,” offers readers ‘inside baseball’ details about Trump’s presidential campaign. The book is jam packed with juicy bits, ranging from the President’s love of McDonald’s to his obsession with Elton John’s music.
One of the most explosive parts of the book is brought to you by none other than the man himself: Donald J. Trump. According to Lewandowski and Bossie, Trump melted Manafort’s face off after the top aide suggested the candidate avoid television appearances.
As political operative Roger Stone has stated countless times, “Trump is his own man.”
Washington Post reports:
In a section of the book written by Lewandowski, Trump is described as flying on his helicopter when he learns that Manafort has said “Trump shouldn’t be on television anymore, that he shouldn’t be on the Sunday shows” and that Manafort should appear instead. Trump was angrier than Lewandowski had ever seen him, ordering the pilot to lower the altitude so he could make a cellphone call. “Did you say I shouldn’t be on TV on Sunday? I’ll go on TV anytime I g–dam f—ing want and you won’t say another f—ing word about me!” Trump yelled at Manafort, according to Lewandowski. “Tone it down? I wanna turn it up! . . . You’re a political pro? Let me tell you something. I’m a pro at life. I’ve been around a time or two. I know guys like you, with your hair and skin . . .” Lewandowski called it “one of the greatest takedowns in the history of the world.”
Click here to read more about Lewandowski’s new book.
Paul Manafort, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner were influential in the decision of getting rid of Lewandowski.
According to Fox News, “Paul Manafort, the veteran operative who since March has been amassing influence inside Trump HQ, recently telegraphed through third parties he would be gone in 48 hours if Trump didn’t oust Lewandowski, who’d run his campaign from the outset.”
Manafort grew tired of Lewandowski and eventually asked Donald Trump Jr. to fire him.
The NFL announced this week they will pay $100 million over 7 years to social justice causes.
This comes after players continue their kneeling protest of the US National Anthem.
According to one of the athletes at the forefront of the protests, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid [#35 in the photograph below], the windfall will come at the expense of the league’s planned financial support for breast cancer and military charities.
“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate.
Salute to Service supports military personnel and raises awareness of their sacrifices.
“So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one,” he continued.
The player protests, sparked when former 49ers player Colin Kaepernick began protesting racial oppression in America, originated in the liberal city of San Francisco, which found itself in the news this week as a jury acquitted an illegal immigrant who was deported five times for the death of Kate Steinle.

This video is symbolic of where are now.
Last night, it was the big corporate tax cut. This afternoon it is paying homage to Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement. The story of the last year has been Trump’s conservative agenda. The OD Timeline (Part I, Part II, Part III) illustrates how Trump has celebrated the multiracial calendar. Aside from the Twitter feed, this has been an underwhelming conservative presidency.
Just look at the presidential proclamations: Native American Heritage Month, National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week, National Hispanic Heritage Month, Women’s Equality Day, African-American Music Appreciation Month, National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Jewish American Heritage Month, National African-American History Month. Is this what you call moving the Overton Window?

Father Of Man Murdered By Illegal Alien: Steinle Decision Because Of Leftist Desire To Take Down Trump
Late Saturday, ABC News announced it was suspending network investigative reporter Brian Ross four weeks without pay for an inaccurate report that aired Friday. The report claimed Donald Trump had directed his eventual National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to contact the Russians while running for president as a candidate. Ross followed up his reporting later that day with a “clarification,” claiming it was not while Trump was a candidate, but as president-elect. Statement as follows: We deeply regret and apologize for the serious error we made yesterday. The reporting conveyed by Brian Ross during the special report had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process. As a result of our continued reporting over the next several hours ultimately we determined the information was wrong and we corrected the mistake on air and online. It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience –- these are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday. Effective immediately, Brian Ross will be suspended for four weeks without pay. Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
Stocks crashed by 350 points on Friday following a report by Brian Ross at ABC News that that General Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser, would testify that he was directed to make contact with Russians during the presidential campaign in 2016.
But on Friday evening ABC News corrected their explosive special report that aired in the morning saying that Donald Trump, as a candidate for president, had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with Russians.
The mistake cost investors billions and it was #FakeNews.
Brian Ross apologized for the fake news report.
This was all fake news.
Hours later, ABC News issued a “correction.”
“CORRECTION of ABC News Special Report: Flynn prepared to testify that President-elect Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians *during the transition* — initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria, confidant now says,” ABC News tweets hours later.

The White House said on Friday that it was the Obama administration that authorized former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during President Trump’s transition, according to CNN.
Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Kislyak in the month before Trump took office, the first current or former Trump White House official brought down by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election meddling. Court records indicate that his communications with Kislyak were directed by a Trump transition official, with multiple news outlets reporting that official was Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. “They are saying here at the White House that Flynn’s conversations with Sergey Kisylak were quote ‘authorized’ by the Obama administration,” CNN correspondent Jim Acosta said.
“We should point out, that is something that we have not heard before in terms of a defense from this White House,” Acosta then bitterly noted.
Footage has resurfaced of Obama State Department spokesman Mark Toner saying Flynn contacting foreign governments during the transition poses no issues.
