    An American organization called One million Moms has started a campaign in order to protest a 'lesbian' scene that was present in the movie. Also, the group of mothers has accused Disney of choosing ‘to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly entertainment’, and have advised the Mouse House that they should stick to entertainment, rather than pushing an agenda and exposing children to controversial topics. This scene has caused enough outrage among the members of the organization that they have started a petition against Disney and has gained 12,555 signatures. According to the petition, the members believe they have been...

    God, it must stink to be a leftist. Many sold all of his stocks in case of an impending Donald Trump presidency. They feared that they would lose all of their money if a billionaire with experience creating thousands of jobs were put in charge of the economy. Why they felt this way exactly remains unclear aside from their stupidity. If they had kept his money in the stock market, they would all probably be a lot, lot wealthier. Instead, they are getting run over by the MAGA train and it just keeps going and going.  As reported by Bloomberg...

    (WASHINGTON) — The House Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to authorize subpoenas for 12 people mentioned in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, including President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The panel also voted to authorize subpoenas for documents and testimony related to Trump’s handling of immigration, including on the separation of migrant families at the southern border. The resolution authorizes an investigation into whether there have been any discussions of Trump offering pardons to Homeland Security officials who work on immigration issues. Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York will make the final decision about...

  • Appeals court denies demands to halt Trump abortion referral 'gag rule'

    The Hill ^ | 7-11-2019 | Jesse Hellmann
    A federal appeals court on Thursday ruled that the Trump administration can proceed with its overhaul of the Title X family planning program, setting aside demands to halt a recent decision allowing the administration to enforce a "gag rule" for abortion referrals. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against emergency petitions that sought to block the rule from taking effect while the changes are being challenged in court. That means the administration can enforce the rules, which block abortion providers like Planned Parenthood from the Title X program and bans providers in that program from referring women for...
  • Jeffrey Epstein’s Fortune May Be More Illusion Than Fact

    07/11/2019 1:55:13 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 67 replies
    When federal prosecutors announced sex-trafficking charges against Jeffrey Epstein this week, they described him as “a man of nearly infinite means.” They argued that his vast wealth — and his two private jets — made him a flight risk. Mr. Epstein is routinely described as a billionaire and brilliant financier, and he rubbed elbows with the powerful, including former and future presidents. Even after his 2008 guilty plea in a prostitution case in Florida, he promoted himself as a financial wizard who used arcane mathematical models, and he often dropped the names of Nobel Prize-winning friends. He told potential clients...
  • JEFFREY EPSTEIN SHIPPED HIMSELF A 53-POUND SHREDDER AND A CARPET AND TILE EXTRACTOR..

    07/11/2019 1:42:56 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 40 replies
    JEFFREY EPSTEIN SHIPPED a shredder from the U.S. Virgin Islands to his Palm Beach home in July 2008, shortly after reaching a non-prosecution agreement with then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, maritime records show. Then, in March of this year, shortly after a Florida federal judge invalidated that agreement, Epstein shipped a tile and carpet extractor from the Virgin Islands to his Manhattan townhouse, the records show. Epstein, a billionaire financier, was arrested in New Jersey last Saturday on charges of running a sex trafficking ring that involved luring underage girls to his New York and Florida residences, and taking them on...

    Rep. Wm. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) unloaded on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday for "using the race card” after Ocasio-Cortez accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of being racially insensitive. Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, fumed at Ocasio-Cortez and the group of progressive lawmakers that includes Reps. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.).

    Commenting on Rush Limbaugh’s passionate denunciation of the spirit of anti-American leftism that is destroying the country, Lloyd Marcus, who blogs at The Unhyphenated American, agrees that the time has come to say “No!” He concludes, with Limbaugh, “It is time that we take action to take back our country. It is time that we say no to anti-American traitors and anti-biblical cultural assassins.” This is a sentiment that cannot honorably be refuted. The problem is trying to decide what saying “No!” actually means. Merely saying “No!” is obviously a futile gesture and will produce little to nothing in the...
  • Trump drops executive action on U.S. Census, will seek citizenship survey by other means

    R ^ | 7/11/19 UPDATED AN HOUR AGO | Jeff Mason, David Shepardson
    A government official confirmed that Trump is expected to announce he will drop the legal battle to include the question on the census survey and instead direct the Commerce Department to obtain answers on citizenship through other means, but it was not clear how that would occur or how it would be funded. The U.S. Census Bureau is part of the Commerce Department. The U.S. Constitution specifically assigns the job of overseeing the census to Congress, limiting the authority of the president over it, which complicates adding the question to the decennial survey via presidential missive. Trump’s decision not to...

    Prepare to meet The Flintstones all over again. Warner Bros. Animation is working with Elizabeth Banks’ Brownstone Productions on an adult-skewing primetime animated comedy based on the classic cartoon series, TVLine’s sister publication Variety reports.

It was even the first animated show to be nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series at the Primetime Emmys in 1961. More than 10 follow-up series and spinoffs aired...

    Jeffrey Epstein’s former Wall Street mentor says the financier’s coziness with former President Bill Clinton “absolutely” led to his ruin. “The Clinton relationship destroyed Jeffrey Epstein and did not help Clinton. Because that was his first major high-profile relationship, and he enjoyed the media pizzazz, not understanding it and letting his ego be inflated by being put in articles next to a former president of the United States,” Steven Hoffenberg told Observer. “That raised his pridefulness enormously. It inflated his ego… That changed him.”

    Chernobyl, the site of the world's worst nuclear disaster which resulted in thousands of deaths, is to become an official tourist attraction, Ukraine's president has announced. Once at the centre of a 1,000-square-mile exclusion zone, Chernobyl has seen a sharp rise in visitors since an HBO mini-series about the tragedy aired earlier this year. And according to President Volodymyr Zelensky, it is now time for a different narrative surrounding the site. "We must give this territory of Ukraine a new life," Zelensky said as he signed a decree on Wednesday. "Until now, Chernobyl was a negative part of Ukraine's brand....

    Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein socialized with the rich and powerful, harboring a sordid hidden life that came to light in 2008, landing him in prison for the solicitation of underage girls for sex. Epstein was infamous for his private Boeing 727 airliner nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” which ferried guests including Bill Clinton and a bevy of young girls allegedly pressed into prostitution at his Caribbean estate dubbed “Orgy Island.” His laughable 13-month sentence after being accused by more than 40 minor girls of sexual abuse is a testament to his connections in high places. Those guests included the aforementioned former...
