The World’s Best Coffee?

On Saturday night’s episode of The Other Podcast, our Valdosta correspondent Dianna Deeley took time to thank John Hoge for a gift he gave her — Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

Biden Celebrates MLK Day With Speech to Group Founded by Infamous Jew-Hater

Maybe you don’t know who Al Sharpton actually is. Perhaps you never bothered to Google “Yankel Rosenbaum.” Maybe you’re too young to remember the Freddie’s Fashion Mart massacre. Your ignorance may be excusable because, after all, major news organizations have gone to great lengths to ignore or minimize Sharpton’s despicable history of inciting violence toward […]
