    What's a disgusting sex predator like far-left Democrat Rep. Katie Hill doing in Congress? Naked pictures of the congresswoman have turned up, first at RedState, and now beyond, showing Hill sitting there with her giant naked thighs spread out, buck naked in some hotel room, stroking her very, very, young submissive female staffer's hair like an alpha orangutuan, It was a picture which must have been taken by someone else, perhaps the man, legislative director Graham Kelly, in the reported Hill "throuple" relationship, (we get to learn so many new words with these freshmen Democrats), or else her husband, who's...

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” closed out Wednesday’s show with a segment on author Joel Stein’s new book, “In Defense Of Elitism,” culminating in him calling hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough “the worst” for being so-called “boat elite.” Stein kicked off the segment describing how he visited the “town in America with the highest percentage of Trump voters, and I thought I would teach them a lot and they would teach me a little.” He also sought to answer a question from Mike Barnicle on why those people “feel such resentment toward people like us and where we like and how...
  • A Note to Our Readers

    10/23/2019 8:03:25 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 15 replies
    To our readers: Last month, The Crimson covered a rally organized by campus group Act on a Dream that called for the abolition of United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. During the course of our reporting, Crimson reporters requested comment from ICE — a decision that has proved controversial with many of our readers. We stand behind that decision, and we wanted to share with you our thinking. The Crimson exists because of a belief that an uninformed campus would be a poorer one — that our readers have the right to be informed about the place where they live,...

    They are an enormous cause of emissions, and deadly to pedestrians? Is it time for automakers to stop selling them or cities to stop allowing them on their streets? Over the last decade, global SUV ownership has doubled. In that time, the vehicles contributed more to the increase in global CO2 emissions than airlines, trucks, or heavy industry, according to an analysis by the International Energy Agency. Even if we add nearly 150 million electric cars to the road by 2040, if SUV ownership grows at its current rate, they’ll offset that entire emissions reduction. And while they’re spewing emissions,...

    Edited the title with XXXX so "wax her balls" doesn't show up on the forum headlines. Article:Jessica Yaniv, a Canadian transgender activist, lost a court case she brought against estheticians who refused to wax her male genitalia. "Human rights legislation does not require a service provider to wax a type of genitals they are not trained for and have not consented to wax," the BC Human Rights Tribunal determined according to the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms which represented five of the estheticians. Yaniv was found to have "engaged in improper conduct" including filing "complaints for improper purposes." The Tribunal...

    The Verge ^ | Oct 18, 2019, 3:45pm EDT | Colin Lecher@colinlecher
    In two letters, a bipartisan group of lawmakers sharply criticized Apple and Blizzard over their recent actions in China. The first, addressed to Apple CEO Tim Cook, expresses “strong concern” over the company’s decision to remove an app used by Hong Kong protesters from its App Store. The app, called HKMap, tracked police presence and was used by pro-democracy activists, but was removed earlier this month after Apple claimed it was being used for criminal activity. The app’s developers said there was no evidence of that, and Apple has been slammed for the move. “Cases like these raise real concern...

    For Chelsea Clinton, America just isn't good enough. Here's her talking about her mom and the country whose voters rejected her, in an appearance on The View, finishing up with not wanting her kids to be exposed to such a place: “I am so proud of my mom. I’m very biased toward her…love her very much and feel very protective of her, although I know she doesn’t need me to be. But, really my most important role now is as my kids mom. You know I have a daughter Charlotte who just turned five last week, a son Aiden, he...

    This is the first segment of AFGE’s 5-part series: The Secret Memo : Inside Trump’s Plan to Destroy Unions.A leaked White House memo, as first reported by the New York Times and then obtained by POLITICO, outlines President Trump’s plans to destroy public and private-sector unions, get rid of worker protections, cripple workers’ ability to organize, and increase profits for corporate special interests.This explosive 19-page document was prepared in 2017 by Special Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy James Sherk, who was previously a research fellow at the regressive, anti-worker Heritage Foundation.The memo, laced with familiar half-truths and outright...

    Mayors from 50 world cities flew to Denmark last week to discuss ways to address the “global climate emergency,” pledging to “do something about it” before they headed homewards again on Sunday. Telling adults to eat less than 300 grams of red meat – about the equivalent of two fillet steaks – a week was one initiative they could agree on.

    CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter brought on "Legendary Journalist" Sam Donaldson to unload the usual liberal mantras on Sunday. That's how CNN tagged Sam -- "Legendary Journalist" -- not only on screen, but even in the CNN transcript. Donaldson raised eyebrows much smaller than his by claiming that Trump fans are "fixated" on narrowing the country: "They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. They don't want the diversity." DONALDSON: I'm telling you something, if public opinion is strongly for the impeachment and the conviction of President Trump, he...

    As Matt Kirwan walks through Maryland’s Blackwater National Refuge, his rubber boots begin to squish. With each step the land beneath him turns from dry ground to increasingly soggy mud. The trees around him go from tall and full of leaves or needles to short, bare and pale white. Partway out, ankle deep in water, Kirwan stops. “At this point we’ve transitioned from being in the forest, to actually being in a full-fledged marsh,” explains the Virginia Institute of Marine Science ecologist. “This ground is now too salty and too wet to support living trees.” Kirwan is standing in the...

    After 23 years as one of the most prominent on air personalities at the Fox News channel, left wing program host Shepard Smith made the surprise announcement at the end of his program Shepard Smith Reporting on Friday afternoon that he is leaving the channel immediately (Fox News video here). Only minutes before, Fox News Media Relations emailed a news release to journalists, including this one, titled “Shepard Smith to Step Down from FOX News.” The release was attributed to an unusually high level source at the channel, Irena Briganti, the Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications for Fox...

"A woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet, because of what I know about our children's future," she added, apparently choking back tears.

    Even by the dismal standards of the 1400s, Christopher Columbus was a terrible human being. So why does California continue to honor him with his own holiday when other states have already replaced it with Indigenous Peoples’ Day? A brief review of the terrors he unleashed reveals why it’s time to make Columbus Day a relic of the past.

    How much is too much to blow on a new ‘do? Ever since Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got the $260 cut and color heard ’round the world, reactions have been mixed. Detractors accuse her of “champagne socialism,” while others argue the price tag is within reason for a public figure — and a New Yorker at that. “I don’t think it’s outlandish,” megastylist Scott Buchanan tells The Post. Prices at his five NYC-area Scott J salons start at $75 for a cut and $90 for color, with lowlights such as the ones AOC received starting at $160. He also notes that...

    Just watched part of the interview with the CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods on CBS Sunday Morning. What a loser this guy is; and a liar to boot. He actually claimed (in essence) 'what kind of society refuses to do background checks'.... He also claimed that the straw that broke the camel's back was the shooter in FLA bought a shotgun from Dick's; he said 'that was it! even though he didn't use that gun in the shooting'. This guy is a complete fraud

    If you give a flight attendant a candy bar, you'll likely score a free drink, but for one Southwest passenger, even a king-sized Snickers probably wouldn't have earned him a complementary whiskey soda. A Southwest flight attendant who recently noticed a passenger wearing a Trump shirt vented her frustrations on social media. The shirt read "Trump 45" and "Suck it up Buttercup." "Someone did NOT get my most Positively Outrageous Service today on my flight ... #notgoingtosuckitup #dumpTrump #eeew," wrote the flight attendant.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested Thursday at a town hall meeting in Queens, New York, that the U.S. should develop “zero-carbon airplanes” as part of a push to solve the problem of climate change. After answering a question about a proposed monorail to deal with climate change, she declared: When it comes to the Green New Deal, people are, like — and of course, they come from this zero-sum mentality: “We’re going to take away your hamburgers. We’re going to take away your airplanes. We’re going to take away all of these things.” And really, what this is asking us...
