    China poured cold water on hopes for a trade deal, signaling it would retaliate against the U.S. threat to put Chinese tech companies on a blacklist, just two days ahead of the highly anticipated trade talks in Washington. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang on Tuesday said “stay tuned,” when asked whether China would retaliate for the blacklist over alleged human rights violations against Muslim minorities. “We urge the U.S. to immediately correct its mistake, withdraw the relevant decision and stop interfering in China’s internal affairs,” Geng said at a news conference according to a transcript on the Foreign Ministry’s...

    As you know, “Will & Grace” actors Eric McCormack and Debra Messing have called on the media to publicize the names of those attending Trump’s Beverly Hills fundraiser later this month. McCormack and Messing deny that their attempt to create a blacklist would actually amount to a blacklist. Because the topic of blacklists has again been in the news, Pat Sajak thought he’d get in on the action:

    Full header: Actor Robert Davi: 95% of Hollywood’s Technical Crews ‘Are for Trump,’ But ‘They’re Frightened’ to Admit It While the vast majority of Hollywood’s behind-the-camera workers support President Donald Trump, they’re too frightened to say so because of liberal intolerance in the industry, veteran actor Robert Davi says. In an interview Monday with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Davi discussed how Hollywood liberals blacklist and discriminate against conservatives who are simply trying to earn a living in the entertainment field. Davi said he's been both offered work - if he would denounce Trump - and denied work because of his...

    "Will & Grace" star Eric McCormack is walking back his comments after he and his co-star Debra Messing were widely criticized after calling for Trump donors in Hollywood to be outed. Last week, McCormack responded to a report about an upcoming fundraiser being held in Beverly Hills in honor of President Trump's reelection campaign by requesting a followup of all the attendees. "Hey, @THR, kindly report on everyone attending this event," he wrote, "so the rest of us can be clear about who we don't want to work with. Thx," McCormack tweeted.

    “Google Snowden moment” Project Veritas has released hundreds of internal Google documents leaked by Vorhies. Among those documents is a file called “news black list site for google now.” The document, according to Vorhies, is a “black list,” which restricts certain websites from appearing on news feeds for an Android Google product.

    Amazon has permanently removed from its website books by Joseph Nicolosi, who was often referred to as the "father of conversion therapy," in a move some say portends censorship of anything Christian regarding sexuality. For months the global online retail giant has been petitioned by LGBT activists who have urged the company to discontinue selling the works of Nicolosi, a clinical psychologist and Catholic author who died in 2017, NBC reported this week. Nicolosi wrote several works about homosexuality in men and therapeutic approaches for persons with same-sex attraction. A Change.org petition that was launched five months ago and has...

    Fun fact: I've been crocheting since I was 10, when my Tita Lisa taught me the magic of granny squares. Fellow yarn nerds will understand the heavenly bliss of spending hours at Hobby Lobby or Walmart immersed in a sea of alpaca, mohair, angora, super bulky and super saver skeins for blankets, baby clothes, hats, headbands, scarves, bookmarks and potholders. (Yes, I've made them all!) I passed on the tradition to my artsy teenage daughter; teaming up on a Christmas afghan for my dad last year was one of my favorite ever projects. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be....

    Group stops debate of proposed law on House floorAUSTIN, Texas (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Texas legislature's LGBTQ caucus is taking credit for blocking a religious freedom bill in the state last week. Also known as the "Save Chick-fil-A Bill," House Bill 3172 would have protected business owners with publicly stated religious opinions from adverse government action. For example, the CEO of the fast food chain is an acknowledged critic of same-sex marriage as well as a frequent donor to organizations that promote traditional Christian marriage. Because of these strongly held positions, the San Antonio city council refused to issue permits that...
