    Happy Birthday Goldie!Goldie Hawn turns 70 today and she couldn't look better!

At 70, there's more to Goldie than just her contagious laughter and that voluminous hair. Here are a few things you may not have known about Goldie.

    The Huffington Post is out with a new article, which chronicles the "11 blackest moments" of the Obama Presidency. The article is aptly titled, "The 11 Blackest Moments In The Obama Presidency," with a subhead of "Thanks, Obama!" The article is not written ironically. According to the article's author, Zeba Blay, "Obama has always been in a precarious position where his blackness has been at various times a political hindrance." There there have been numerous times when "his blackness shines through." Among the "blackest" moments of President Obama's time in office, according to Blay: When President Obama made this face!...

    So this is the world we live in now. Asked by the Huffington Post whether he would go back in time and kill baby Hitler, Jeb Bush said, "Hell yeah, I would! You gotta step up, man." But do you? Should you? Given certain assumptions, killing baby Hitler isn't a hard question. Assume that going back in time merely eliminates Hitler, and that the sole effect of that is that the Nazi Party lacks a charismatic leader and never takes power in Germany, and World War II and the Holocaust are averted, and nothing worse than World War II transpires...

She said she heard this quote and knew what she had to do: "Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Thus, Boyd told the Huffington Post, she wanted to be the "sluttiest" thing possible and the "most hush hush thing you could be while at the same time chipping away at double standards in our society:" a vagina.

    Writing for the Huffington Post, Zeba Blay lauded and quoted statements that compared white people to "rattlesnakes" and which said that 90% of white people could be racists. Blay posted a video of Muhammad Ali from 1971 in which Ali said it's counter-productive to say that not all white people are racist. In the article, Blay quotes Ali as saying: There are many white people who mean right and in their hearts wanna do right.

    Colion Noir calls out The Huffington Post for their recent factually inaccurate, deliberately inflammatory anti-NRA hit piece. The article, which can be read here (https://archive.is/CuYIO) , claims Wayne LaPierre's video "How To Stop Violent Crime" inaccurately identifies De'Eris Brown, a thug who murdered a 9-year-old girl, and uses this to promote an "NRA is racist" narrative. Not only was this claim patently false, but it exposed writer Mike Weisser's own bigotry and bias in the process.

    If youre looking forward to finding out who "won" the GOP debate just minutes or hours after it ends on Wednesday night, you'd probably be better off waiting a few days instead. It's not that there won't be plenty of immediate data to look at, from focus groups and instant polls to social media and web traffic. But as the past few months have shown, none of those are especially reliable guides. A focus group led by GOP pollster Frank Luntz after the first Republican debate in August suggested that voters had soured on Donald Trump -- a prediction not...

    This Trump brag line goes like this: He had the vision and foresight to oppose the Iraq War ahead of the invasion in 2003. His opposition was so vocal, and his reach so great, that the White House approached him and asked him to tone it down. Really? We examined the slim evidence. The Facts At The Fact Checker, we place the burden of proof on the speaker. Trump has not responded to repeated requests by us or other media outlets for proof of his early opposition to the invasion. Military action began on March 20, 2003. An extensive review...

Conservative Party president John Walsh made the announcement in a media release Monday night, shortly after Justin Trudeau's Liberals captured a stunning majority government. "I have spoken to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and he has instructed me to reach out to the newly elected parliamentary caucus to appoint an Interim Leader and to the National Council to implement the leadership selection process pursuant to the Conservative Party of Canada constitution," Walsh said in the release.

    The Huffington Post actually has a poll and a slideshow up about Governor Palin's toenails. No, I'm not kidding, and it's already got hundreds of poisonous comments. This reminds me of the numerous wire photos of the Governor's feet and lower legs during the 2008 campaign, and the interest seems to be continuing. For instance, Ben Smith's Politico piece from last Saturday's Auburn visit included this quote: Her four-car motorcade, including two black SUVs provided by the New York State Police, then headed to Seneca Falls, where Palin, bright red toenails visible in open shoes, trooped through a museum that...

    Grassroots voters in 2014 apparently foiled a secret plan by House Speaker Rep. John Boehner to give his top job to the partys House Majority Leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, who is a close ally of the GOPs establishment wing. The plan suddenly collapsed last June after Cantors constituents in Virginias 7th district rejected him in favor of his primary challenger, economics professor Rep. Dave Brat. Brat won by blasting Cantor for mimicking Senator Sen. Marco Rubios effort to pass the mass-amnesty bill that would further raise high immigration levels. The Speakers plan was to serve only through the end of...

Pope Francis touched on many topics in his speech to Congress, but conservatives may have expected him to say more about abortion and same-sex marriage. During his historic speech at a joint meeting of Congress on Thursday, Pope Francis hit upon a variety of issues that have defined the Catholic church: protecting the environment, helping the poor, addressing the plight of immigrants, abolishing the death penalty and taking a stand against the proliferation of the weapons trade, to name a few. Yet, while the pope had strong...

That moment for Sarah Palin was her Katie Couric interview in 2008 -- the hockey-mom-has-no-clothes revealing from which she, and the McCain campaign, never recovered. In Donald Trump's candidacy -- which The Huffington Post is appropriately covering in our Entertainment section -- the equivalent moment might have just happened. It was not the moment in the second Republican debate when Carly Fiorina carved him...

    At least two reporters have had their press credentials denied by Donald Trump's campaign staffers within the last week. There is speculation that Trump ordered the move because two major news outlets have been publishing stories about his presidential campaign in the entertainment section instead of under political news. According to CNN, Huffington Post reporter Samantha-Jo Roth and Jason Noble of the Des Moines Register were told that they would not get credentials for Trump events "from now on," but they would be able to attend as part of the general public. http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2015/09/21/two-reporters-banned-from-donald-trump

Rand Paul. He lashed out at the eye-doctor, constitutionalist and junior senator from Kentucky seemingly out of nowhere in the very beginning of the second GOP presidential debate in Simi Valley, Calif.

Clinton's favorability rating among black Americans eclipses those of the other Democratic hopefuls. The next highest rating belongs to Sen. Bernie...

Meanwhile, Donald Trump escalated his disruptive impact on the Republican presidential field, with a post-debate remark implying that Fox reporter Megyn Kelly was menstruating when she asked him provocative questions, fittingly, about his coarse put-downs of women. The two forms of disruption invite comparison. BLM is disrupting the most progressive candidate in the Democratic field. Why?

While the FBI is currently investigating the email security of one candidate, Bernie Sanders is narrowing Clinton's lead nationally and defeating Republicans in other polls. Like Brent Budowsky writes in The Hill: The fact that Sanders beats Walker by 6 to 7 points, depending on whether all voters or likely voters are counted -- a near-landslide margin in a general election -- makes it clear...

    However, 25 years later the themes of this film still resonate with Trump's character. A quarter of a century later, here it is. In 1988, Leonard Stern commissioned the film as part of a celebrity businessman series. Here's a Huffington Post piece about the documentary by its original writer, and here's the press release announcing the online debut-it appears that the film covers some allegations... Trump grew wealthy during the 80's, the start of the "me generation" of moneymakers, and the "decade of greed". In it, he was revealed to be "the opposite of a small-government conservative" and someone who'd...

    The New York Daily News ^ | July 27, 2015 | Ralph Nader
    The brouhahas over billionaire Donald Trump show how broadcasters favor easy, juicy stories about powerful peoples bad words over harder, less sexy ones about their bad deeds. This is a teachable moment for the mass media. Failing to take Trump seriously could set a dangerous precedent for future candidates with fresh ideas, looking to shake up the controlling status quo. The Huffington Post, which carries my column, announced that it is excluding Trump from its political coverage and instead filing all stories about the man leading the Republican field, according to the most recent polls, under entertainment. If they existed...

    Jeff Schweitzer heralded the discovery of an apparent Earth-like planet as a nail in the coffin for religion in a Thursday item on Huffington Post. Schweitzer, a scientist, "rationalist," and former Clinton administration senior policy analyst contended that "with this discovery, we come ever closer to the idea that life is common in the universe," and added that religions would "all will come out and say such a discovery is completely consistent with religious teachings. My goal here is to declare this as nonsense before it happens."The Huffington Post contributor led his article, "Earth 2.0: Bad News for God," by...
  • HuffPo Author: We Should Replace the Phrase "White Privilege" with "White Advantage"

    Writing for the Huffington Post today, Daniel Cubias suggested that liberals get rid of the term "white privilege" with "white advantage," or another phrase that shows that whites receive societal benefits simply for being white. Cubias cautions in his piece Let's Get Rid of the Term 'White Privilege' that "white privilege" does indeed exist. However, the phrase itself is not catchy enough. Liberals were smart to change "global warming" to "climate change." He explains, "consider the worst branding decision of all time: "global warming". As we all know, climate deniers just scoff and say, "Then why was it so cold...

    Want updates on Donald Trumps 2016 presidential campaign? Youll have to search next to their headlines on Kim Kardashian, says the Huffington Post. In a mocking note about the billionaire businessman Friday morning, the liberal site announced it would be treating the Donalds White House run as Entertainment. After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow....

    DURHAM, NC, March 20, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – During a national media blitz, the Duke University student who makes pornographic films to pay her tuition has said her experience in the industry has left her feeling “empowered” and uplifted. But an anti-pornography activist has posted a shocking video graphically undermining her claims. “My experience in porn has been nothing but supportive, exciting, thrilling, and empowering,” Miriam Weeks, who revealed that she performs under the name Belle Knox, wrote on the feminist website xoJane.com last month. “For me, shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy.” “It is my artistic outlet: my love, my...

    The Huffington Post said on Friday it will no longer cover the presidential campaign of real estate mogul and former reality TV star Donald Trump as politics, but rather, as entertainment. "Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow," read a post bylined by the site's Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim and editorial director Danny Shea.

    The Huffington Post ^ | 07/12/2015 5:32 pm EDT | Bill Schneider
    There's a reason why Donald Trump is stirring up the Republican race. The Republican Party has become a resistance movement, and Trump is leading the resistance. What it's resisting is the rise of the New America. That's the coalition of groups that were historically marginalized: immigrants, racial and religious minorities, gays, working women, single mothers, young people and "unchurched" Americans with no religious affiliation. It's a coalition united by a commitment to diversity and inclusion. And deeply opposed to symbols of exclusion like the Confederate flag, hostility to immigrants and homophobia. The coalition is growing in numbers as the U.S....

    Writing for the Huffington Post, Mandy Hitchcock declared that racism "was created by white people" and that it is entirely on white people to end it. In her article, titled "It's My Job to Raise Children Who Are Not Only Not Racist But Actively Anti-Racist," Hitchcock spends multiple paragraphs on the privileges that white people have. "Zero: the number of times I have discussed race or racism in any meaningful way with my white four-year-old son," Hitchcock writes. "Of all of the many privileges I enjoy as a white woman in America, this is by far the most significant." She...

    It was a difficult marriage from the beginning. Its success was largely regional and state by state. But where it worked, it worked well, mainly the South and parts of the West. They papered over their differences for years. Now they've grown apart and a messy divorce looms. It wasn't exactly a shotgun marriage. The Wall Street/Koch Brothers crowd gleefully accepted the support of Tea Party and evangelical leaders, as long as austerity, high-end tax cuts and deregulation were part of the agenda. The cultural right needed money and legitimacy. Everybody got along. No more. The split was thrust into...

    You see, what you just did with your straight talk was send more Latino voters to the polls than several registration rallies combined! Thank you for that, Ferrerra wrote in a guest blog for the Huffington Post. Here we are pounding the pavement to get American Latinos to the polls, while your tactic proves most effective, she continued. Remarks like yours will serve brilliantly to energize Latino voters and increase turnout on election day against you and any other candidate who runs on a platform of hateful rhetoric.
