    19 Aug 20181075 Netflixs Insatiable star Alyssa Milano railed against President Donald Trumps nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring that he will affect everything we know to be true as American citizens. Speaking alongside far-left pro-abortion activists including Lauren Duca, Cecile Richards, Jessica McIntosh, Jessica Morales Rocketto and Meagan Hatcher-Mays at the Los Angeles stop of the Rise Up for Roe tour, Milano described it as f***ing absurd that they are fighting to keep abortion legalized and called on people to mobilize against Kavanaughs nomination.

    Self-described "ass-kicking, motorcycle-riding, Texas Democrat" MJ Hegar, a candidate for Texas deep-red 31st district, has a novel approach to environmental politics: she doesnt care if her supporters believe in man-made climate change, but says it's hard to deny the corrupting effects of petroleum dependence on American foreign policy. "Our dependence on foreign oil is just so damaging to our country on so many levels," Hegar told ABC News in a June interview. "I respect other peoples freedom to be discerning and to make their own decisions. But they cant deny that the U.S. military pays the price for our dependence...

    File under child abuse Course disputes idea that heterosexual sex is 'natural' Eugene Lang College is offering a "Queer Ecologies" course this fall devoted to countering heterosexist explanations of animals and nature. According to the instructor, common scientific practices like using the terms "male" and "female" when describing reproduction among plants and animals contributes to the perception that "queerness" is "unnatural." And do you know what else is unnatural? post normal science (PNS). Once there was modern science, which was hard work; now we have postmodern science, where the quest for real, absolute truth is outdated, and "science" is...

    The majority of young millennial women reject unrestricted abortion, refuse a feminist identity, and indicate trust issues with the media according to a poll by the media. In anticipation of the upcoming midterm elections, CBS and Refinery29 teamed up for a poll concerning young American womens voting trends and views on certain issues. They began publicizing it August 13. While some media reports of the findings focused more on the political aspects, such as the Trump Administration, the poll revealed much more. Namely, that many young women dont fit the mold that the media and politicians often assume. Abortion...

    The Satanic Temple unveiled its statue Thursday of a goat-headed, winged creature called Baphomet during a First Amendment rally at the Arkansas State Capitol to protest a Ten Commandments monument already on the Capitol grounds. With Satanists, atheists and Christians among those in attendance, several speakers called for the removal of the Ten Commandments monument or for state government officials to install Baphomet as well. The Satanic Temple said the Ten Commandments monument violates constitutional freedom of religion rights and that installation of their statue will demonstrate religious tolerance. Satanic Arkansas cofounder Ivy Forrester, who helped organize the rally,...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Former Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said in seeking to make history and capture a U.S. Senate seat in New Mexico he'll have to give up a few of his favorite activities: marathon biking rides, hanging out in his northern New Mexico "dream" home and tuning out news about President Donald Trump. But he can't promise he won't smoke an occasional joint. Johnson, who served two terms as New Mexico governor in the 1990s and gained national attention as one of the first mainstream politicians to call for the legalization of marijuana, announced Thursday that he's...

    The IRS has reportedly recognized the Pussy Church of Modern Witchcraft as a legitimate church. The Maryland-based group is dedicated exclusively to lesbian feminists. Peter Reilly, a CPA for over 30 years focusing on taxation, first reported the new designation in a blog post for Forbes. "The IRS recognized it as a 501(c)(3) organization and went the extra step of recognizing PCMW as a church, the most enviable of all tax statuses exempt not only from income tax but also from the transparency that filing Form 990 creates," Reilly wrote. "A church does not have to apply for exempt status,...

    The "one nation, indivisible" referred to in the pledge is not only unconstitutional, it's contrary to the entire idea of the America the Founders sought to create. An Atlanta, Georgia, charter school announced last week its intention to discontinue the practice of having students stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance during its schoolwide morning meetings at the beginning of each school day, opting to allow students to recite the pledge in their classrooms instead. Predictably, conservatives were immediately triggered by this anti-American decision, prompting the school to reverse its decision shortly after. continued below

    Colorado is trying to compel the same baker who just won a Supreme Court case into baking a second cake that violates his religious beliefs. Masterpiece Cakeshops Jack Phillips, who won a Supreme Court case in June, is once again being harangued by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission for refusing to bake a cake with a pro-LGBTQ message. Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit late Tuesday night against the commission on his behalf, over the states second attempt to compel him to bake a cake with a message that violates his religious beliefs. Two months ago, the Supreme Court...

    Progressives (regressives) have been educating (indoctrinating) our American children for decades, inculcating (forcing) ideas such as political correctness (approved speech), globalism (one world government), global warming/climate change (redistribution of wealth), income equality (confiscation of wealth), resistance (anarchy), social justice (reverse discrimination), and tolerance (intolerance). Progressivism has generally succeeded in creating a few generations of snowflakes (melting babies given to tantrums) and college graduates whose degrees were expensive and useless. But nobody is complaining about higher education escalating costs and globalist indoctrination. Progressives have been urging their followers to make everything smart (U.N. compliant), to learn to deal with water shortages...

    bortion has been an important economic stimulus ever since it was legalized by the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, Chelsea Clinton claimed at a "Rise Up for Roe" event on Saturday. At the event promoting opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the former First Daughter of President Bill Clinton credited legalized abortion for helping add trillions of dollars to the U.S economy because women who had abortions were more inclined to enter the labor force: "Whether you fundamentally care about reproductive rights and access right, because these are not the same thing, if you...

    One of the nation's most powerful labor unions is rallying supporters to oppose Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. On Friday, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) began circulating a petition online for its allies to send to their home state lawmakers. The union letter calls Kavanaugh a "narrow-minded extremist" and accuses the D.C. Circuit Court judge of undermining workers' rights and opposing abortion. "Kavanaugh is a narrow-minded extremist who will chip away at our rights in the workplace, the doctor's office and the ballot box," the letter says. "If Kavanaugh is confirmed he...

    Democratic billionaire donor Tom Steyer said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is wrong for saying his push to impeach President Trump is helping Republicans. Steyer pushed back against Pelosis claim during an interview with BuzzFeed News that aired Sunday night, calling Trump reckless and dangerous and lawless. This is a historic time, Steyer said. If you step back for one second and think about this president, the most corrupt president in American history, somebody who is breaking the law on a daily basis. Pelosi warned Democrats earlier this year against pursuing impeachment efforts against Trump, saying it could hurt...
