WATCH What Protesters Did When Fox News Reporter Tried To Cover Chicago Protests

As Chicago erupted in protests on Tuesday night, video shows that some protesters were heard screaming “f*ck Fox News” and harassing a reporter who was on the scene to cover the unrest.

The protests emerged across the city as officials finally released the year-old dashcam video of the police shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was killed in October of 2014. The teenager, who was walking away from police officer Jason Van Dyke, was shot 16 times. Several of those shots came after he was already down and practically motionless on the street.

Also on Tuesday, Van Dyke was charged with first-degree murder.

Video of the marches shows that protesters were on the knife’s edge of turning violent. As thousands of marchers in several parts of Chicago surged into the streets, the city was practically shut down in many places.

While the protests were fairly peaceful, some marchers did throw water bottles and other items at police while they rushed police lines. In a few cases, marchers even tried to steal police bicycles.

The protesters also became quite hostile when they discovered that one of the members of the media worked for Fox News.

In the video you can hear dozens of voices chanting “F*ck Fox News” and some even yelling at Fox News correspondent Mike Tobin to “get the hell out of here!”

Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed for the most part in Chicago on Tuesday evening. There were some arrests, of course, but no major violence broke out in the streets of the Windy City.

According to The Washington Post, five were arrested and charged with weapons possession, resisting arrest, and other minor violations.

There are more protests planned for Wednesday evening, too, so there is still a chance that more troubles will occur, but thus far it is notable that for one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. Chicago seems to have avoided the fate of violent protests seen this year in such cities as Ferguson, Missouri, New York City, and Philadelphia.

Greens ‘Smuggle’ Climate Policy Into The Church, Aim To Tip Climate Politics

Based on a just-released report from New America, efforts to build a “broad coalition to pass major climate policies” are “doomed” without the evangelical community’s involvement.

“Spreading the Gospel of climate change: an evangelical battleground,” according to E & E News, offers “An autopsy of evangelicals’ influence on U.S. Climate law.” While the efforts “failed,” the authors posit: “there is an untapped potential for environmental activism in the world of evangelical Christianity.”

The report offers several reasons for failure, including: “donors who pushed for this ‘deliverable’ did not really understand the internal dynamic of the evangelical world,” and suggests future tactics such as “better messaging” and more “person-to-person connections.”

While I hope all readers find the report’s inside strategic analysis interesting, evangelicals should be particularly alarmed with the realization that we have been, and will continue to be, the target of an organized and well-funded effort, from outsiders who “lacked deep knowledge about evangelicalism,” to “recruit evangelicals into policy solutions to climate change.”

While admitting failure, there was some early success—including Saddleback Church’s Rick Warren and CBN’s Pat Robertson. The report states: “Movement leaders, funders, and the environmental movement were optimistic that this small victory could be the foundation for even more ambitious legislative goals.”

The report is a fascinating case study of the outside effort to “smuggle” climate policy campaign into churches.

When I read the 27-page document, the influence of “environmental funders” became obvious: “Since the mid-1990s, environmental funders recognized the need for a broader field of faith-based movements who could expand the influence of environmentalism to unlikely allies. They also realized that evangelicals had a special role to play in this religious portfolio because their religious community was closely associated with the Republican Party.” Evangelical Christians became the target of “constituency engagement development.” Financial grants were made to increase the role of climate change in churches. Environmentalists worked to reframe climate change as “Creation Care” and “hoped that evangelical Christians might publically embrace climate change as a moral issue and an authentically ‘conservative’ concern.”

The efforts at infiltration included “building faith-based environmental clubs in Christian colleges” and offering to help churches “reduce their energy bills.”

The report chronicles the work of Georgia Interfaith Power and Light—led by an Episcopal priest: Rev. Alexis Chase. She persuaded Southern Baptist churches to host HEAT classes to train lay leaders to save energy and money in their own homes.

In short, the evangelical Christian community has been used. National funders and environmental allies targeted us, thinking that we’d be ready to “influence legislation in Washington.” The strategy was to get “evangelical elites” to embrace “Creation Care” and “frame environmental concerns as moral issues”—thus “creating their own set of biblical and theological themes.”

While environmental funders who invested in building the Creation Care movement have admittedly failed, the report states: “Movement leaders have also deepened their commitment to more long-term, values-based organizing in local evangelical spaces.” Now, instead of targeting “evangelical elites,” they realize they need “rank-and-file evangelicals.”

I encourage my fellow evangelicals to put on the full armor of God. Use your intellect and prayer to discern the truth. Many Christians have come to realize that Creation Care has nothing to do with The Creator; instead, it is, like the serpent’s efforts with Eve, attractive messaging for a political agenda.

Be alert. You are the prize to those who lack knowledge about who you are and what you believe in. Without you, their efforts are “doomed.”

Watch: Former Muslim Goes On Fox News And Issues Chilling Warning To Americans

Author and former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Monday  and discussed the threat of radical Islam- and its growing presence in the United States.

She spoke about her upbringing in Saudi Arabia: “I cannot describe to you what kind of a place Saudi Arabia is. It is apartheid–gender apartheid. It’s a place where using modern tools and modern money…they actually enforce 7th century rules.”

Saudi Arabia’s sharia law system is similar to that used by ISIS. The exception is that Saudi Arabia is considered a key U.S. ally in the region.

Ali said that she was amazed to hear U.S. authority figures say that “what we see, these terrorist acts, the subjugation of women, the hatred of Jews and Christians, has nothing to do with Islam.”

She criticized Obama’s approach toward radical Islam, saying, ” I just think it’s a strategy that has failed. He’s not the only one who’s tried it.”

While she says it is true that we are not at war with Islam, she also says that we have “hundreds of thousands of people who are at war with us”: Radical Islamists.

On a positive note, Ali insists that there “millions of peace-loving Muslims.”

However, she chillingly warned: “Even for Muslims who are already here…there is an active Islamization process going on in the United States of America. We’ve been in denial about it for a very, very long time. It is time that we wake up, and see who is behind this.”

BUSTED: Emails Reveal Hillary Aid And CNN Reporter Caught Conspiring To Do THIS At Benghazi Hearing

The U.S. media has always claimed itself to be an “unbiased” review of “the news,” and that its reporters do only that: report. But a recent review of Hillary Clinton’s emails seems to show that a CNN reporter coordinated with Clinton’s staff to push favorable stories on social media.

The CNN reporter in question is the network’s foreign affairs reporter, Elise Labott; and her communications seem to show that she coordinated with Clinton’s top State Department staffers during the former secretary of state’s January 23, 2013 Senate testimony about the Benghazi attacks.

The emails show that Labott took directions from Clinton staffer Philippe Reines by posting criticisms of Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul because he dared to ask tough questions of the secretary during the hearings.

According to the Daily Caller, “Labott also coordinated with Reines to post a favorable quote from Clinton’s testimony, which she gave just a week before she left office.”

After posting some of the tweets she was directed to post, Labott also engaged in high fiving Hillary with the State Department staffer.

“She was great. well done. I hope you are going to have a big drink tonight,” Labbot said to Reines in compliments over Clinton’s performance at the hearings.

And that wasn’t all. The next series of emails shows that Reines asked the “reporter” to join him on an instant messaging service so she could get further instructions. Minutes later, she sent an email saying, “done.”

According to Phil Kerpen, it appears that the “done” was in reference to a tweet Labott posted on January 23 at 4:01 PM. It was a tweet pushing a claim Clinton made during the testimony.

Kerpen needled the CNN “reporter,” saying, “A reporter who Tweets on request!”

This isn’t the first time that this CNN “reporter” has revealed her apparent left-wing bias on Twitter. In fact, she was recently suspended for two weeks after slamming Republicans for their vote to put a halt to President Obama’s importation of Syrian “refugees.”

On November 19, Labott tweeted, “House passes bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish.” This sort of opining, CNN claimed, violates its code of journalistic practices, and so Labott was suspended.

626 Democrat Politicians Just Rose Up Against Obama And Sent Him A Demand He Didn’t Want To See

Over 600 Democrat politicians from 32 states have joined together to oppose the centerpiece of Pres. Obama’s climate change agenda, the Clean Power Plan.

“As Democrats committed to a prosperous America and a healthy environment, we believe the United States has a unique opportunity to lead the world in addressing the global climate challenge, and yet do so, as we must, without unduly burdening the American economy or the American people,” the Democratic coalition called CoalBlue said in a letter sent Tuesday to Obama.

“The letter was signed by 626 state and local officials from nearly three dozen states, including 177 state legislators, 278 local elected officials and 148 Democratic Party officials,” the Washington Examiner reports

These leaders believe the Environmental Protection Agency’s new rules regarding carbon emissions will cause great harm to the economy:

Unfortunately, the EPA’s recently published rules for new and existing electric generating units severely miss the mark in many important regards. Taken together, they endanger the continued development of critical carbon-mitigating technologies necessary to achieve sustainability, threaten the reliability of the U.S. power grid, and place significant economic burdens on the American economy and the American people, in the form of higher energy costs and a potentially less reliable electric grid, without achieving any meaningful reductions in global CO2 emissions.

“The EPA, while well intentioned, has lost sight of the importance of preserving affordable and reliable energy in its pursuit of clean energy,” the Democrat leaders add.

As reported by Western Journalism, the EPA’s Clean Power Plan calls for a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by the nation’s power industry by 2030.

The energy sources that will be impacted the most by the new regulations are coal and natural gas. Currently, the United States derives 39 percent of its energy from coal, 27 percent from natural gas, 19 percent from nuclear, 6 percent from hydroelectric, and 7 percent from other renewables (mostly wind power).

The president has stated that his plans for the energy sector will necessarily cause utility rates to “skyrocket and result in the closure of coal-fired power plants.

The Heritage Foundation released a study last fall that found the EPA regulations the Obama administration has announced in order to achieve its climate change goals would reduce the United States’ Gross Domestic Product by $2.5 trillion by 2030. Further, employment levels would “track nearly 300,000 jobs below the no-carbon-regulation baseline in an average year, with some years seeing an employment deficit of more than 1 million jobs.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that a typical U.S. household could lose about $3,400 in disposable income per year, with a combined loss for all households of $586 billion by 2030, due to Obama’s new EPA climate change regulations.

The report by the Institute for Energy Research concludes that the “EPA’s regulations impose huge costs for small benefits. The agency’s ozone rule could be the single costliest regulation in U.S. history…Meanwhile, EPA’s CO2 rule will impose double-digit electricity rate hikes for residents of 43 states, but limit global warming by just 0.02 degrees Celsius. The solution is for EPA to withdraw its proposed ozone and CO2 rules.”

The Senate voted last week for two resolutions (both 52-48) blocking the implementation of Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), with Democrats Joe Machin (W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) siding with Republicans. The House will likely take up the resolutions next week, while the president travels to Paris to take part in the U.N. Conference on Climate Change. The White House has promised Obama will veto the congressional resolutions.

Twenty-four states have joined together to sue the Obama’s EPA to block implementation of a new CPP rule regarding CO2 emissions.
