    PJ Media ^ | 11/11/17
    Sean Hannity was the friendliest possible interviewer that Roy Moore could have chosen to defend himself from accusations that he fondled a 14-year-old girl. Despite the host teeing up softballs for him, Moore flubbed his chance to put the controversy to rest, failing to completely deny dating teenage girls when in his 30s and claiming forgetfulness when trying to deny specific allegations. The money quote: "Let me ask you this, you do remember these girls? Would it be unusual for you as a 32-year-old guy to have dated a woman as young as 17? That would be a 15-year difference......
  • Sen. Cassidy Was Right: Most Planned Parenthood Businesses Are in Urban Areas

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Om Narayanan.  During a CNN health-care debate on September 25, 2017 Sen. Bill Cassidy stated, “You know, first, most Planned Parenthood settings are in urban areas, urban areas that have lots of OB/GYNs…Now, as it turns out, the folks who don’t have access to those cancer screenings live in rural areas. They live in areas where there are not enough physicians. So the idea is that we want someone to have to drive — a lower-income person drive — three hours to a Planned Parenthood facility there to get her screening, or would...

    The Salute To salute, all persons come to attention. Those in uniform give the appropriate formal salute. Citizens not in uniform salute by placing their right hand over the heart and men with head cover should remove it and hold it to left shoulder, hand over the heart. Members of organizations in formation salute upon command of the person in charge. NOBODY in attendance ever does this anymore... GRRR!
  • Baltimore Mayor Pugh says crime 'out of control,' orders agencies to meet with police every morning

    Baltimore Sun ^ | November 9, 2017 | Luke Broadwater and Kevin Rector
    Calling violence in Baltimore "out of control," Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered 30 agency heads to meet every morning at police headquarters, and to make crime reduction the top mission not only of police, but also of health workers, housing officials and public works crews. The mayor ordered the directors of more than half of the city’s 55 departments to report to meetings daily at 8 a.m., when they will plan with Police Commissioner Kevin Davis where weeds should be cut, lead paint covered and drug houses boarded up and job applications can be handed out, among other tasks.

  • Taylor Swift’s Persona Is Not Built For 2017 (too "Aggressively White")

    Buzz Feed ^ | 10 Nov 17 | Alanna Bennett
    Taylor Swift’s reputation is a complicated mess. Love her or hate her, she knows this and we know this — it's what her newest album (uh, Reputation), is all about. One would need a corkboard and miles of red string to sort out the full medley of exasperation that has accompanied conversations about Taylor Swift over the past few years. In one quadrant of tacked-up evidence are Swift’s celebrity feuds, generally juicy but also exhaustively long-running. In another, you’d find everything about Swift’s personal life that alternately grates and thrills (depending on your preferences). Move over a little from there...

    Church Militant ^ | November 10, 2017 | David Nussman
    "It's a raucous, hand-waving affair that doesn't even look Catholic at all" With its shrinking flock and declining number of priests, the bishop of Pittsburgh is turning to the Charismatic Renewal for a solution. A Pittsburgh diocesan committee called On Mission for the Church Alive is charged with managing the decline in the number of Catholics in the pews by merging, grouping and consolidating parishes. The group also seeks to make the best of the diocese's bad situation by solidifying community bonds and strengthening the faith lives of the few remaining parishioners. One way the diocese is seeking renewal, according...

    A French mayor and dozens of other MPs and elected councilors from around the Paris region sang the Marseillaise on Friday as they marched towards around 200 Muslim worshipers in a bid to stop them praying in the street. The standoff, which was caught in several video clips, took place in the Paris suburb of Clichy on Friday afternoon. The local right-wing mayor, Rémi Muzeau, led the march after growing infuriated by the presence of hundreds of Muslim worshipers praying on the town’s market square every Friday for the past nine months. Images relayed from the scene near Clichy Town...

    Drudge Report founder Matt Drudge, who knows of what he speaks, dropped a bomb Thursday with the newsy prediction that CNN chief Jeff Zucker is doomed. "Jeff Zucker out either way at CNN," Drudge wrote before adding, "primetime ratings abysmal. Feud with President Trump too personal and ridiculous ..." [Snip] The problem for last-place CNN, though, is that it has actual competition in the form of MSNBC and Fox, both of which are shellacking The Least Trustws Name In News in every conceivable metric. Moreover, when compared to the same month last year, CNN’s October 2017 ratings collapsed a whopping...

    In July 2016, the Obama administration announced its decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for felony mishandling of classified information and destruction of government files. In the aftermath, I observed that there is a very aggressive way that the Justice Department and the FBI go about their business when they are trying to make a case — one profoundly different from the way they went about the Clinton emails investigation. There, they tried not to make the case. That observation bears repeating today, as we watch Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of any possible Trump-campaign collusion in Russia’s alleged interference...

    Italian authorities have accused a leftist politician of paying €25 per vote to win his seat in regional elections held in Sicily last weekend, the daily La Stampa reported Saturday. Edmondo Tamajo, 41, has been charged with criminal conspiracy in relation to electoral corruption, said the newspaper. On his Facebook account, Tamajo stated, “I have never bought a single vote, and have built my political career on daily acts to support people.” He added he was willing to cooperate with the investigation to clear up the situation. …

    In a wide-spanning discussion with Professor Jordan Peterson of the University of Toronto, Camille Paglia argued that Women’s and Gender Studies departments should be defunded. “The English Department had taken a century to develop,” Paglia began. “All of a sudden, to create a department with a politicized agenda from the start taught by people without any training in that field? What should be the parameters of the field? What should be the requirements of the field? How about biology? If you are going to be discussing gender, that should be a number one requirement.” Paglia argued that active programs in...

    "Star Trek" icon George Takei has responded to an accusation of sexual assault made by a former model and actor who alleged an incident at Takei's home in 1981. In a series of tweets Saturday morning, Takei writes that the events "simply did not occur." He adds that he does not remember Scott R Brunton, who made the allegations in a THR interview which ran on Friday. "I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them," Takei continues to his 2.8M followers. Takei, who played Mr. Sulu on the original “Star Trek,” and who...

    FULL TITLE: 'I thought about killing him, I thought about killing myself': Male rape victims of Jeffrey Dahmer - one of America's most notorious serial killers - reveal why he stopped short of murdering them Serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has been dead for more than 23 years, but the murders and dismemberments of the 17 boys and men he killed, and sometimes ate, still haunt the living today. Two men have given interviews to reveal Dahmer raped them during his military service, are now speaking out about the murderer who they call a 'sociopath.' Preston Davis was 20 years old...
  • Our culture is experiencing a hostile takeover. We must stop rejecting God if we ever want it to end

    The recent Texas church shooting, the terrorist driving a truck through a crowd in New York City, and the Las Vegas massacre may seem shocking – but to anyone who has been paying attention, they should not. Our culture is undergoing a hostile takeover. American society used to be governed by Judeo-Christian do-unto-others morals. But we have drifted (been pushed, really) into a hedonistic YOLO (You Only Live Once) cultural morass. The upshot of this is a distinct lack of respect for human life in general, as well as a pervasive, insidious obsession with self. This is the “me” generation,...

    The first snows of the season have begun to fall in Germany, as a cold front from the north moves across the country, bringing heavy rain, storms and snowfall at regions over 1,000 meters. The cold polar air has reached the north of Germany and is moving south, bringing heavy showers and the possibility of sleet and one or two storms, DWD predicts. Temperatures will reach highs of 5°C to 11°C, and most of the country will have cloudy skies throughout the day on Friday. There will be a fresh west wind with strong gusts in the north and particularly...

    Michael Moore: I am ‘hopefully’ Trump’s worst enemy By Max Greenwood - 11/11/17 10:47 AM EST Director Michael Moore said on Friday that he hopes he is President Trump's "worst enemy" in the "battle" for working-class white voters in middle America. "I think Trump's had a complicated relationship with me – the way that he's tweeted at me in the past and danced around without trying to get too angry, because I am his base," Moore said on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." "I am his demographic, and I am an angry middle-aged white guy from the Midwest." "And...

    Angel Soler's mother brought him to the U.S. as a young boy, figuring things would surely be better than in Honduras, where he had lived in one of the world's most violent cities. Javier Castillo's father made the same calculation when he took his young son out of gang-plagued El Salvador. Life in the leafy Long Island suburbs of New York didn't prove to be any safer.
