    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) reportedly caused a scene at a New York City restaurant on Sunday, where he was seen yelling at a wealthy and well-connected supporter of President Donald Trump, calling Trump "a liar." Schumer was dining at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo Sunday night with friends, according to Page Six. During the dinner, Schumer encountered former secretary of health, education, and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson, Joseph A. Califano Jr. Califano was dining with his wife Hilary, the daughter of the founder and current chairman of CBS....
  • Judges’ ‘Twilight Zone’ logic in slapping Trump’s travel ban

    Bing. Bing. Bing. Bing. You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind — a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Next stop, the Twilight Zone. Or, more formally, the United States Court for the District of Hawaii. That’s where Judge Derrick Watson has just blocked President Trump from suspending travel to America from certain Muslim countries seething with Islamist terrorism. Watson issued on Wednesday his own nationwide ban against Trump’s plan to stem migration from specific war zones. The president’s aim is to beef up the vetting...

    When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning. What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts. It may not surprise you that the United States was founded...
  • Where Is the Left's Cognitive Dissonance?

    American Thinker ^ | 16 Mar, 2017 | William F. Marshall
    Merriam-Webster defines cognitive dissonance as "psychological conflict resulting from simultaneously held incongruous beliefs and attitudes (as a fondness for smoking and a belief that it is harmful)." Given all the hypocritical stances taken by liberals these days, one might expect to see them quivering uncontrollably with dissonance-related tremors, or at least losing a lot of sleep. But I can't say I've seen any signs that liberals are very troubled. A few examples of their contradictory positions will serve to make my point. In the March 6 edition of The Wall Street Journal, "above the fold" on page A8 was a...

    This arsenal of firearms is among the dozens of weapons that have been taken off London’s streets during the Met’s latest gun amnesty. Since Monday 45 weapons have been surrendered across the capital as part of the Give Up Your Gun campaign, including shotguns, revolvers, rifles and handguns, Scotland Yard said. Detectives from the Met’s gang unit today urged anyone still in possession of an illegal firearm to hand it in before the amnesty ends on Sunday night.

    United Airlines replaced a pilot before takeoff on Saturday after she boarded in civilian clothes and told passengers over the intercom that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were liars and that she was getting a divorce, witnesses said. The airline on Sunday declined to identify the pilot or comment beyond a previous statement apologizing to customers, many of whom left the plane out of concern for their safety. The flight from Austin, Texas, to San Francisco took off with a new pilot about 90 minutes late, passengers said. "She shows up dressed like a civilian and asked us to...

    With everything going on in Richmond and Washington, you may have missed this, but it’s important: Republicans in the House of Delegates just passed a bill to make it more difficult to vote in the Commonwealth. The GOP voted along party lines to require proof of citizenship in order to vote -- something that courts have said is unlawful at the federal level. Not only that, but they argued for the bill using the same lies about “voter fraud” that Donald Trump has been using. But we know the truth: Voter fraud is a myth, and Republican laws that claim...

    I don’t know anyone who is doing “well” right now. Have we entered an era of perpetual anxiety and deep uncertainty? Is this the beginnings of what some historians are calling the rise of an authoritarian regime in the US? Having been in power for less than two weeks, Trump has already reinstated the Global Gag Rule, pledged to revive the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines, banned federal agencies and scientists from publicly reporting their findings, halted immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, pledged to build a wall on the Mexico border and much more.

    Chelsea Manning saw injustice and stood up for what’s right. Now, she’s serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison. She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation. The news has sparked a groundswell of support for Chelsea online. Hundreds of thousands of people have already taken action to support her, but now the message is simpler than ever. But now...

    The Army says former private Chelsea Manning will lose her military healthcare benefits despite President Obama’s commutation of her prison sentence. “If Pvt. Manning is discharged with a dishonorable discharge, she will lose her entitlement to [military] benefits, including gender-transition care at [military] medical treatment facilities,” Army spokeswoman Cynthia Smith told USA Today Wednesday. Smith said Manning’s dishonorable discharge was included in the terms of the 35-year prison sentence imposed on her in 2013. Manning was convicted of leaking classified information about U.S. national security activities that were later publicly disclosed by WikiLeaks. Smith said Manning could appeal her discharge...

    Human Rights Watch has taken Trump derangement syndrome to new heights with the release of its annual report that lists the United States of America as a human rights abuser on par with China, Egypt, and Syria. Their reason? Donald Trump's rhetoric during the recent presidential campaign. Trump has yet to take office and the Soros-funded HRW is already condemning the U.S. for policies that have yet to be enacted.

Merkel received 89.5 percent of the votes from the roughly 1,000 delegates who were present at the conference in Essen, western Germany, according to German media. The vote secures her a further two years as leader of the party.

    ‘I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” was President Obama’s favored path to a foreign-policy legacy. Oops. President-elect Donald Trump may now use his own pen and phone to erase it. But it won’t be that easy. At first glance, the Paris agreement on climate change, the Cuba détente and the Iran nuclear deal seem easy to undo. Like many of Obama’s stabs at history-making, they were done unilaterally, without congressional advise and consent. But Obama’s pen didn’t quite write his ticket to immortality in disappearing ink. Take Iran. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry insisted that...

The New York state Board of Parole on Monday announced that it has again denied parole to Mark David Chapman, who on Dec. 8, 1980, shot and killed the former Beatle outside his luxury Manhattan apartment.

    It’s time for Republican leaders to consider a negotiated endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Barring a Wikileaks revelation showing Clinton to be a secret member of ISIS, she seems to be on a glide path to the White House. Instead of Donald Trump attempting to expand his base since securing the Republican nomination, he is politically self-immolating on a national stage. Trump apologists keep saying he will soon change course. But the only way for Trump to change course is to change who he is. That’s not going to happen.

    WASHINGTON— An analysis by the Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest finds the refugee plan of presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton could cost hundreds of billions of dollars. Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has announced her desire to admit at least 65,000 refugees from Syria – on top of the existing refugee flow already entering the United States. What Clinton has not explained, however, is that in addition to the clear national security implications related to accepting more refugees, there are massive financial costs that would be borne by federal, state, and local governments.‎ Assuming Clinton's desire to bring...

Below the heading were depictions of children playing. The white children were labeled as behaving "cool" while children of color were depicted as misbehaving, or "not cool," for breaking pool safety rules.
