    President Donald Trump's relationship with the LGBT community is complicated. During last year's election Trump positioned himself as a pro-LGBT Republican. On the campaign trail Trump promised he'd be "better for the gays" than his 2016 election opponent Hillary Clinton. The president even made history by mentioning LGBT issues during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. But since Trump took office many voices in the community say their rights and livelihood have come under fire. "We are at war," Ken Kidd, an organizer with direct action group Rise and Resist, tells AOL.com. "We are under...

    It has been reported today that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has been moved to the position of communications director and will no longer be the primary person delivering media press briefings. That said, it also appears many of the previous recommendations, CTH followers and Trump supporters have suggested, are being thoughtfully considered by the WH communications team. The media are apoplectic at the possibility the White House might shut down their ability to ‘create news-bites’ via planned and coordinated broadcast gotcha questioning. Below is the transcript for today’s press briefing. In my opinion, the non-broadcast format should be...

    After President Trump rejected the Paris Climate treaty, which had never been ratified by the Senate, the European Union announced that it would work with a climate confederacy of secessionist states. Scotland and Norway’s environmental ministers have mentioned a focus on individual American states. And the secessionist governments of California, New York and Washington have announced that they will unilaterally and illegally enter into a foreign treaty rejected by the President of the United States.

    Former Governor of New Hampshire, John Sununu told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Monday morning that Mueller is hiring Democrat lawyers because he knows that there is nothing to investigate. As TGP previously reported, Robert Mueller is stacking his Special Counsel team with Democrat donors and Obama lawyers as their Stalin-like witch hunt of ‘show me the man, I’ll show you the crime’ continues full steam ahead. Camerota: “Should the White House know if the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice?” Sununu: “If the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice, the White House should have been officially notified.”

    There are few things quite as expensive as “free health care.” And the nation’s most populous state may be about to find out the hard way. On June 1, the California Senate voted 23-14 in favor of a bill, the Healthy California Act (SB 562), to authorize the state to act as a “single payer” in place of insurance carriers in negotiating prices with doctors, hospitals and other providers. The measure covers all residents regardless of financial ability or immigration status. Annual costs may reach $400 billion – and that’s just for starters. As existing Medicare and Medicare funds will...
  • Ohio’s Nuclear Power: Will it Stay or Will it Go?

    Will Ohio lose both its nuclear power plants? If gauging the response of legislators is any indication, Ohio’s nuclear plants seem to be doomed. Clearly, grassroots organizers such as Generation Atomic, the American Nuclear Society, and North America Young Generation in Nuclear have failed to convince legislators to act to save Ohio’s only nuclear generation assets. These organizers have been working for months under the ultimatum from FirstEnergy Corp, the plant’s owners: convince Ohio lawmakers to pass ZEN (Zero Emission Nuclear) legislation by June 30th or else the plants will close and decommissioning will begin. That threat carries with it...

    The election of Donald Trump last year set the stage for major changes in U.S. foreign policy and particularly American policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran. It was clear on the campaign trail that Trump’s views on Iran could hardly be more different than those of his predecessor, Barack Obama. Almost six months into his first term the administration is now well positioned to lay the foundation for a lasting Middle East legacy by boldly embracing the goal of regime change in Tehran. Whereas the Obama administration took great pride in the Iran nuclear deal it helped to negotiate,...

    Miley Cyrus has made a strong statement against Italian fashion house, Dolce & Gabbana, and their politics. In an Instagram post on Saturday, the 24-year-old posted a photo of her younger brother, Braison, walking in his first ever runway show — for Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2018 menswear collection that afternoon. After a long post of praise for the male member of the Cyrus clan, she adds a line about the brand’s much-buzzed about politics, noting that she is not one to support, no matter how happy she is that they chose Braison to represent them on the runway. Alongside...

And that narrative is, somebody did something wrong. It was Donald Trump and therefore, at the end of the day, he must not be president.”

    Whenever the mainstream media awards a participation trophy to the loser of an election, it is sure bet they are awarding it to a Democrat. Such was the case with the June 17 Politico which awarded a participation trophy to Jason Kander who lost the 2016 U.S. Senate race from Missouri. No matter. As far as Politico is concerned he was really a winner as you can see from their title, How Jason Kander Won by Losing. What makes this article particularly amusing is how far overboard Politico writer Edward-Isaac Dovere goes in hyping the future political career of Kander....

    He said it. But if you repeat it, you’re a racist, bigoted Islamophobe. “Fight them until religion is all for Allah” (Qur’an 8:39). In recent statements and speeches, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders have emphasized that the Islamic Revolution in Iran is only the first stage on the path to the spread of the rule of Shi’ite Islam in the Middle East and worldwide, and that the mission of advancing the Islamic Revolution to these heights falls to the IRGC commanders…. The following are translations of recent statements by senior IRGC commanders on this matter: On March 11, 2017,...

    I Shook Hands With Hitler Reincarnation Today And I think I saw Vincent Price peering out of the corner, quick to be out of sight hiding from me. But I saw him. Met the vacant eyes of Bela Lugosi passing in the bathroom. Eerie organ music played as I entered the doors for my interview. Had a nice conversation with a woman who’d, I imagine, takes classes in incompetency. They’re very interested in me and want to explore the next level in the process. She mentioned a few caveats, shrugged at the facts that there were 2 meetings a day,...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — A judge has issued an injunction that will temporarily prevent the city of St. Louis from removing a Confederate monument from Forest Park. St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Robert Dierker on Monday issued the injunction and set a July 6 hearing for arguments over whether the city or the Missouri Civil War Museum owns the monument. The museum filed a lawsuit Friday against the city, contending the United Daughters of the Confederacy signed over the ownership rights to the monument last week. The city contends it controls the monument and wants to remove it soon. Dierker's...
