Charles Love writes about False Prophets in the City Journal.
Coleman Hughes is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and contributing editor of City Journal. Read his compelling article on Stories and Data here.
It is an established fact that you shouldn’t judge someone until you walk in his shoes; take the time to read Mr. Hughes and Mr. Love’s article and see the world through their eyes. Instead of the media putting the likes of Al Sharpton on a pedestal, the media should be elevating the words of these young African-American men.

In case you missed Secretary Ben Carson on Fox News Sunday yesterday, June 14, 2020. For the first time in a long time, Mr. Wallace was left speechless. Great interview, Secretary Carson. As noted above, don’t judge someone unless you walk in his shoes, Mr. Wallace.

If they only knew the real Gov. Cuomo they wouldn’t be so quick to consider this: Dems would swap Biden for Cuomo, poll says: Switch basement Grandpa with guy who killed Grandpas. Dems need a strong personality (certainly not Joe Biden) to be their candidate and they think they have one in Andrew Cuomo.

Listen for yourself here.
It is important to know that this judge – Springing a cop-attacking looter: one judge’s new low – was appointed, not elected, to the bench by Mayor DeBlasio. And, if my math is close, she is approximately 66 years old (graduating from Brandeis University in 1976) which means this ultra-liberal judge has a minimum of 4 years to continue to use her “judicial discretion” to not remand the worst of the worst.
