Sharpton sent this tweet:

I’m in South Africa headed to the Global Citizen Festival with Congressional Black Caucus members Greg Meeks, Barbara Lee, Bobby Rush & Hank Johnson & my @MSNBC colleague Joy Reid. #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA

More from Fox News:

Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took a $60,000 trip to see Beyoncé and other stars perform in concert in South Africa late last year, according to congressional disclosure records.

The lawmakers were U.S. Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Bobby Rush of Illinois, Terri Sewell of Alabama and Hank Johnson of Georgia, according to the data.

They attended the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert from Dec. 1-3 to celebrate the centenary birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty. In addition to Beyoncé, other musical acts included her husband Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin.

Sharpton has made a lot of money over the decades. He decided to pocket another $531,000 by selling the rights to his life story.

Nothing wrong with that, right?

Here’s the thing.

He sold the rights to his own charity.

Sharpton, president of National Action Network (NAN), made over $240,000 in compensation from the group in 2017 alone.

Linda Sugin, a Fordham University Law School professor and associate dean, warns of “funny business” afoot.

Sugin: “When I see this kind of thing, it just makes me roll my eyes because there’s so much potential for funny business.

Al, Al, Al.

It made sense that the Dems went to see Beyonce. She’s not exactly someone who preaches “America first.”

From NBC News, circa 2016:

Beyoncé’s politically charged performance at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show continues to inspire fans and detractors several days after the game has come and gone.

The pop icon performed her new song “Formation” while flanked by a squad of stunning black women clad in clothes meant to conjure up memories of the Black Panthers, which was founded 40 years ago. Prior to her performance on Sunday, the “Drunk in Love” singer released a music video for the song. It made more plain the sociopolitical content of the record, with allusions to the Black Lives Matter movement and Hurricane Katrina. In perhaps the video’s most incendiary image, Beyoncé sits atop a New Orleans police car which is eventually submerged in the water.

On Monday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who himself has a polarizing record on police brutality issues, condemned the performance. “I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive,” he said during an appearance on Fox News. ”And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers.” Giuliani’s broadside was followed by calls for a protest outside of the NFL’s headquarters in New York on February 16 by an anonymous critic who called Beyoncé’s performance a “race-baiting stunt.”

Save conservative media!

Roughly ’10 to 15 Percent’ of Americans Are ‘Not Very Good People,’ Says Joe Biden

Imagine if Trump said it…

Like most (if not all) Democrats, Joe Biden can get away with anything he says because he has the mainstream media on his side. President Trump is obviously not afforded that luxury. Anybody want to get a jump on those inevitable “10 to 15 percent” t-shirts? Check this out, via New York Times: WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.” Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not. Joe said, “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out.” He added, “Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1201984322909229056?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201984322909229056&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/trippwhitbeck/status/1201992151292432384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201992151292432384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/sunscreen_ceo/status/1201985832703287296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985832703287296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/1962Kiser/status/1201985108128829440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985108128829440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/laurenduca/status/1201930900445057024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201930900445057024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/notaguido1/status/1201943648583200769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201943648583200769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Fdemocrat-voters-are-so-racist-lauren-duca-shames-the-left-for-their-white-supremacy-after-kamala-harris-drops-out-ha%2F https://twitter.com/Thomas_Firenze/status/1201996468757749760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201996468757749760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/FourthHailMary/status/1201985912328130561?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985912328130561&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/markbeenyc/status/1201987371115388928?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201987371115388928&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/navymig/status/1201985998801911808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201985998801911808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F https://twitter.com/alexsimonelis/status/1201986045719568384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1201986045719568384&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2019%2F12%2F03%2Ftalking-kamala-harris-msnbc-panel-seems-to-confirm-that-democrats-are-racist-and-sexist%2F H/T: Twitchy

‘Practice Things Like An Eye Gouge!’ Project Veritas Infiltrates Antifa, Learns Devastating Truths

These guys aren’t playing around!

“Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” says Antifa member, Nicholas Cifuni. Pretty sickening. Then again, nothing about the anti-fascist fascist movement is on the level. James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had an operative infiltrate an Antifa outfit in Portland. What was learned is pretty devastating. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLR76_e_koE&feature=emb_title From Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr announced Thursday that investigations of recent violence spinning out of protests yielded evidence that not only are various “extremist” groups taking advantage of the unrest for their own ends, but that “foreign actors” are also getting involved. […] Barr said that there is evidence that those extremists include Antifa and other groups of different political persuasions, as well as “foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1267091647042473985?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1267091647042473985&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-james-okeefe-infiltrates-antifa%2F Here’s more Antifa nonsense… https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268693940376604677 https://twitter.com/mtgreenee/status/1268692420834799617 https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1268684723053789184 https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1268684820151844864 https://twitter.com/SamParkerSenate/status/1268529530655793152?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1268529530655793152&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2020%2F06%2F04%2Four-revolution-cannot-be-stopped-project-veritas-infiltrates-antifa-exposing-the-terrorist-movement-and-holy-crap-watch%2F https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1268686572439904260
