    This week, the number of announced Democratic presidential contenders reached 23. The crowded field left many desperate to generate interest in their candidacies. Front-runner, former Vice-President Joe Biden vowed to give free health care to illegal aliens. Reminded that these immigrants already receive this benefit, Biden insisted that “it’s not free enough. They’re forced to seek out clinics to get these services. When I’m president we’ll have an outreach program that requires doctors to make house calls so immigrants can enjoy these services in the comfort of the free public housing the government provides for them.” Nomination rival Sen. Elizabeth...

    Reporters set Twitter abuzz when New York Times White House Correspondent Maggie Haberman noted that the White House was playing the song “Edelweiss,” suggesting there was significance to the song that the White House did not understand. Does…anyone at that White House understand the significance of that song? — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 18, 2019 Users quickly commented that Haberman seemed to think Trump was playing a Nazi song in the White House. The song is from Richard Rodgers’ and Oscar Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music” and is played by Captain von Trapp right before the family flees the...

    Full header: Barack Obama: Trump’s Nationalism ‘Not Pride in Country, but Hatred for Somebody on the Other Side of the Border’ Former President Barack Obama derided the American nationalism of President Donald Trump’s supporters as rooted in a “hatred” of foreigners, offering his remarks on Tuesday at Rice University in Houston, Texas. He joined former Secretary of State James Baker and presidential biographer Jon Meacham. When I hear people say they don’t like identity politics, I think it’s important to remember that identity politics doesn’t just apply when it’s black people or gay people or women. The folks who really...
  • South Africa: You have the support of Britain on land reform – Theresa May

    Britain supports South Africa’s land reform program provided it is carried out legally, Prime Minister Theresa May said in Cape Town on Tuesday, adding that she would discuss the issue with President Cyril Ramaphosa. “The UK has for some time now supported land reform. Land reform that is legal, that is transparent, that is generated through a democratic process,” May told newsmen. “It’s an issue that I raised and discussed with President Ramaphosa when he was in London earlier this year. “I’ll be talking about it with him later today.” NAN reports that on August 22, US President Donald Trump...

    As people around the world don rainbow swag in celebration of International Pride, the World Health Organization (WHO) has come out with an announcement of its own. For the first time since 1992, the organization issued a major revision to its international manual of diagnoses and, among other things, a major shift in the way transgender people are treated. The 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) reframes “gender identity disorder” as “gender incongruence”, moving it from a mental health disorder to an issue of sexual health. Codes issued by the ICD are used by countries to determine...
  • Joy Reid’s Old Blog Portrayed John McCain As The Virginia Tech Shooter

    Mediaite ^ | May 31, 2018 | Caleb Ecarma
    Joy Ann Reid‘s old, supposedly hacked blog that was first reported on by Mediaite is apparently the gift that keeps on giving, as BuzzFeed News dug-up an old post today in which the MSNBC host likened Senator John McCain to a mass shooter. The October 2007 post, which was published on the now-defunct Reid Report, is titled “Baghdad John Strikes Again” and features a picture of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho but with the head of McCain squarely edited on top of his. “Republican presidential candidate John McCain told workers of small weapons factory that he not only wants to...

    While bemoaning during Friday’s Deadline: White House about the lack of decency and civility in light of White House staffer Kelly Sadler’s ugly comment about Republican Senator John McCain (AZ), MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace joked to White House correspondent Kristen Welker about choking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. If that wasn’t enough, MSNBC contributor John Heilemann hailed White House reporters for doing “valiant work” in press briefings exposing the White House’s lies and Wallace’s fellow McCain/Palin campaign aide Steve Schmidt ruled that Sanders is worse than Baghdad Bob.
  • Florida Gov. says Puerto Rico should become a state

    Florida's Republican governor says he supports making Puerto Rico the nation's 51st state. Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday said the United States should "respect the will of the people of Puerto Rico." The U.S. territory held a referendum last year where more than a half a million voters backed statehood.

    It's been half a year since Phil Murphy was elected governor and more than 100 days since he's been on the job. But few people know seem to know this. Earlier this month, a Stockton University Poll found that Murphy remains a virtual unknown to a sizable part of the population. One in three respondents said they were either not familiar with Murphy (10 percent) or were unsure of what to think of him (23 percent). Can it really be that a state of 9 million people knows little to nothing about its chief executive? We decided to put it...

    Nervous that left-wing loon and former "Sex and the City" star Cynthia Nixon will oust him in the Democratic primary this coming September, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to convince voters that he is all things to all people. In saner eras, the standard Democratic ploy was to promise an array of government-funded goodies to constituents. Now, though, Cuomo seems determined to persuade the gullible that he is "a Muslim, a Jew, a gay, a woman, a transgender, a criminal, an undocumented immigrant—I am every person, except a straight white male, and am the most perfect candidate to represent this...

    Germany's air fleet was grounded this week after "too much biodiesel" fuel found its ways into the gas tanks, according to German reports saying the Luftwaffe cannot safely fly with such a mixture. Germany's Tornado fleet of war planes was reportedly grounded after an unsafe mixture including too much biodiesel was used to fuel the planes, requiring the fleet to be grounded and their fuel tanks flushed. "The tolerance values are minimally exceeded," Colonel Kristof Conrath of the Tactical Air Force Squadron 51 was quoted as saying in media reports. "It's not that the aircraft would fall from the sky....

    Back in about 1986, when I was single, a friend set me up on a blind date. We made a foursome: my friend and her boyfriend, a friend of the boyfriend and me. We all went to dinner, and this fellow (I’ll call him John, since I can’t remember his name) and I attempted polite chitchat. We had the usual banter of background and mutual-interest inquiries; and while John was a perfectly nice fellow, it became apparent we had very little in common. We dated once or twice more, then wished each other a pleasant life and went our separate...

    California is poised to meet its goal to reduce greenhouse gases 33 percent, to 1990 levels, by the year 2020. Its targets for use of more renewable energy by that date are, in some cases, already exceeded. ...hold on tight for what comes next. The state’s overarching plan was intended to ease industry and consumers into a carbon-free future bit by bit; ten years in, the training wheels are off. Emissions-reduction must hit 40 percent by 2030 and twice that by 2050. In 12 years, half the state’s energy must come from renewable sources. 14 million buildings must operate twice...
  • Greek life retreat ends abruptly with bias concerns (Banana peels are racist)

    This weekend, leaders from Ole Miss Greek life convened upon Camp Hopewell in Lafayette County for a three-day retreat designed to build leaders and bring campus closer together. The retreat was cut short Saturday night, however, after three black students found a banana peel in a tree in front of one of the camp’s cabins. The students shared what they found with National Pan-Hellenic Council leaders, sparking a day’s worth of camp-wide conversation surrounding symbolism, intended or not. In the midst of the open and sometimes heated discussion, senior accounting major Ryan Swanson said he put the banana peel in...

    It seems you can’t talk about Germany these days without dragging Turkey into the conversation and that’s particularly true of the ongoing refugee crisis. Chancellor Angela Merkel sat down for an interview this week and was asked about the refugee situation and whether or not she might consider a cap on incoming immigrants in light of all the problems they’ve been experiencing. Despite some of her previous statements during the current election campaign, Merkel flatly rejected the idea of limiting the number they would accept

    Comedian Kathy Griffin held a press conference Friday with her attorney regarding the backlash surrounding the image of her holding up a faux severed head of President Donald Trump.During her opening statement, Griffin said the reaction from the White House is something that has never been seen before."A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the first lady are personally—I feel—personally trying to ruin my life forever. Forever," the comic said. "You guys know him, he's never going to stop."Since images and video of her controversial photo shoot were posted earlier this week, Griffin has been...

    Facing some grumbling from more conservative Republicans and jabs from Democrats, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that a spending deal worked out in Congress in recent days was a “clear win” for his policy goals, citing extra money for the military and border security. “After years of partisan bickering and gridlock, this bill is a clear win for the American people,” the President said in the White House Rose Garden, flanked by members of the Air Force Academy football team. Mr. Trump eagerly cited $21 billion in extra defense spending in the bill for the Pentagon.
  • NASA Considers Magnetic Shield to Help Mars Grow Its Atmosphere

    Such a shield could leave Mars in the relatively protected magnetotail of the magnetic field created by the object, allowing the Red Planet to slowly restore its atmosphere. About 90 percent of Mars's atmosphere was stripped away by solar particles in the lifetime of the planet, which was likely temperate and had surface water about 3.5 billion years ago. According to simulation models, such a shield could help Mars achieve half the atmospheric pressure of Earth in a matter of years. With protection from solar winds, frozen CO2 at Mars's polar ice caps would start to sublimate, or turn directly...

    The lunacy of the left continues to spill over past-election. English doctors are being told to refer to expectant mothers as "pregnant people" as to not offend those who are transgender. Robert Reich claims that the Berkeley riots were actually instigated by "Right Wingers" (with no explanation as to why) and Planned Parenthood continues to lie about provide so-called "Prenatal Care." Add to that the fact that some are now claiming that 3 and 4D Ultrasounds that not only identify the sounds of a baby's heartbeat but show 3 dimensional images of babies moving in the womb are "imaginary and...

    You would be wrong. Embarrassed, angry, and confused, the Left is simply doubling down on the behavior and the rhetoric that drove large numbers of Americans to vote for Trump in the first place. If you’re a liberal and you want to greatly increase Trump’s chances for re-election in 2020, here are four easy steps you can take to make that a reality. 1. Deny the Legitimacy of the Election Results The election had barely been called when liberals began claiming it had been a rigged affair. Ari Berman implied that “the GOP’s attack on voting rights” was a likely...
