    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday mocked a “Straight Pride Parade” that is reportedly being organized in Boston as a response to Pride Month. “Will ‘Straight Pride’ be a Freaky Friday type situation where all of our history books, movies, stories, media, news, etc feature mostly LGBTQ+ people & perspectives?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter. “Will people have to come out as straight? What would folks march in? Socks w/ sandals on? Dad jeans?” she continued. Reports of a possible "Straight Pride Parade" were mocked widely on social media. The parade is being organized by three men, according to The Washington...

    He said it a Brooklyn press conference on Tuesday. Mayor Bill de Blasio, in addressing the increase in hate crimes in New York City under his watch, said, “I think the ideological movement that is anti-Semitic is the right-wing movement.” DeBlasio made the outrageous comments at a Brooklyn press conference on Tuesday. Anti-semitic incidents in 2019 are up 90 percent more than they were in June of 2018. A reporter had stated that there is also anti-Semitism “on the left – in the BDS movement around the world.” But Hizzoner the Mayor disagreed. He continued, “I want to be very,...

    A teenager visiting Yosemite National Park from Jerusalem plunged to his death this week while reportedly trying to take a selfie at the park’s popular Nevada Fall. ... Multiple fatalities have been reported in the park this year. In May, a man died on Half Dome after he slipped and fell during a thunderstorm on the last 400 feet of the climb, where hikers grasp cables to scale the summit. According to the park service, most accidents there occur during wet conditions.

    Democratic-Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, as Breitbart News reported, was born in the Bronx and raised in the affluent suburb of Westchester, told Hawaii Democrats on Thursday evening that her life has been shaped by “an unaddressed history of imperialism and poverty.” Ocasio-Cortez was campaigning for Hawaii Democratic congressional candidate Kaniela Ing ahead of this weekend’s primary election and argued that Hawaii felt like a “kindred home” because she also comes “from a place of colonized people.” Ocasio-Cortez said that she and Ing had similar life experiences even though they grew up worlds apart because they both lost their fathers...

    Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson says he would “either have knelt or raised my fist in solidarity” in the clash between President Trump and NFL players kneeing during the national anthem. “I felt like our president’s responses were being dictated by the noise, and not the actual problem,” Johnson said in an interview with Rolling Stone, adding that the protests were “a cry for help.” He added: “I think when human beings are in jeopardy, and they ask for help, good-quality human beings, whether locally or at the highest level of office, they help.” Last year, Johnson criticized the way Trump...

    After insisting that enough damage had been done and swearing off future insults toward Jeb Bush, Donald Trump on Friday returned to badgering his favorite presidential foe. In the fallout of CNN's Republican debate in Las Vegas, Trump has once again taken up needling the former Florida governor. Bush, eager to energize his sagging campaign, brought the fight to Trump on the debate stage, repeatedly talking over the billionaire as the pair tangled. "I have an idea for @JebBush whose campaign is a disaster. Try using your last name & don't be ashamed of it!" he tweeted Friday. I have...

    AUSTIN -- Gov. Rick Perry has the opportunity for a political do-over this week in a critical debate that he hopes will get his sagging campaign back on track after subpar debate performances and a plunge in the polls. Conversely, another poor showing in Tuesday's Republican debate in New Hampshire could plunge him deeper into a hole, making it even harder for the one-time GOP front-runner to regain the momentum he enjoyed in the opening weeks of his campaign. Perry's performance at the last debate in Florida was universally panned and contributed to a downturn that knocked him out of...

    Levi Johnston, the hunky baby daddy of Sarah Palin's grandson, called the former vice presidential nominee wise for not trash talking him in her soon-to-be aired interview with Oprah Winfrey. "She's being smart," said Johnston, when a reporter told him last night that Palin didn't blast him in the interview she taped with Winfrey Wednesday afternoon. "She knows what I got on her. It's a smart move on her part." Johnston described his relationship with Palin and her family is "not good." He said he will be going to court to get better access to his son, Tripp. On Twitter,...

"I don't know -- They just don't want me in his life," Levi says. He says he believes this based on things his son's mother Bristol has said to him, but believes it is the former GOP vice presidential candidate who is "feeding her something."

Shepherd — who said earlier this year that she didn't know if the world was flat or round — said during a short-lived discussion of Greek philosophy on Tuesday's show that she was pretty sure nothing "predated Christians."

    With her trip to Syria, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi achieved two things: She undercut her own credibility in Washington, and she spotlighted what is wrong with the Democrats' approach to national security. The spectacle of Pelosi making nice with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in Damascus and accepting at face value his claim that he is ready to "resume the peace process" with Israel had a large portion of official Washington tittering. At the same time, Syrian authorities were telling the local press that there had been no change in its position. And Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Pelosi that...

    DAMASCUS, Syria (CNN) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived Tuesday in the Syrian capital, where she is expected to tackle an issue complicating the U.S. mission in the Middle East -- Damascus' alleged support for militants in Iraq and Lebanon. Though her visit conjured a strong rebuke by the White House, Syria seemed to welcome the 67-year-old California Democrat. After arriving in Damascus, Pelosi visited a centuries-old market district, where she mingled with Syrians. She also visited the Omayyad mosque in Old Damascus, which is considered one of the most sacred sites in the capital. (Watch what the White House...

    Washington -- Reckless is the best way to describe Nancy Pelosi's latest in-your-face attempt at upstaging George W. Bush foreign policy. Assad is viewing her trip as a green light to take over Lebanon the way Saddam viewed Glapsie's lack of interference as a green light to invade Kuwait. Will she take the blame if Lebanon falls to Assad and his cabal of murderers and thugs? Probably not. But the American people and the Lebanese must hold her feet to the fire. Nancy Pelosi is on a power trip. Those who have worked closely with her in Congress speak of...

    I stumbled across her blog today and thought it was interesting to see the way she responds to questions from readers. She actually responds to negative comments but in a very childish potty mouth nyah, nyah, nyah kind of way. A lot of bizarre, incoherent rants, mispelled words, shortcut words (ur = you are), and lower case spelling. Thought it was pretty funny to read and thought I'd share it with my friends.

    Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright criticized the U.S. invasion of Iraq, saying Monday it had encouraged Iran and North Korea to push ahead with their nuclear programs. Albright, who served under President Clinton, said "the message out of Iraq is the wrong one." "The message out of Iraq is that if you don't have nuclear weapons, you get invaded. If you do have nuclear weapons, you don't get invaded," she said after an investors' conference in Moscow. Albright visited North Korea in October 2000, becoming the highest-level American official ever to travel to the country. The two nations do...
