    Put this one in the loony lefty bin. Hollywood actress Patricia Arquette, known for winning the best supporting actress Oscar two years ago, revealed she’s a conspiracy theorist last night on Twitter. After an Islamic terrorist killed 4 people and wounded at least 40 others in London Wednesday, the actress claimed it was all a ruse by President Trump to distract us from the FBI investigation into his ties with Russia: So far her tweet hasn’t received that much attention, but Arquette is certainly a media darling. In 2015 the actress made headlines when she gave a politically charged acceptance...

    Men ruin everything. And liberals ruin everything. So, if you do the math, you'll see that liberal men ruin everything like twicely or something. (Math was never really my subject. Or Grammar.) But it seems now that liberals and men are hell bent on destroying women's sports. Just a few decades after the liberal agenda gave us Title IX which demanded that educational institutions offer just as many scholarships for women's sport as they do men's sports, now liberals are demanding that men can call themselves women and that will effectively eradicate women's sports. You see, the first thing took...

    Poor Glenn Beck. His longtime supporters were hoping his career would survive the Trump presidency. But it doesn’t look like that is going to happen. Former conservative Beck – who endorsed Hillary Clinton for president – is now defending Muslims from President Trump’s temporary travel ban. Independent Journal Review reported: During a new interview with CBS News, Beck argues that — while he fully agrees that the world is facing a clear “Islamist threat” — the “short-sighted” way that the Trump ad

    James Comey should not simply be fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He must be barred forever from any form of public service. In the last 10 days, Comey has whipsawed the election for president of the United States. Now we know he did it for no reason. When his agents found information that suggested there were emails on a laptop that might have relevance to the investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email servers, Comey did not wait until he knew even a scintilla of information before announcing it to the world. Reasonably, lots of voters...

    When MSNBC's Rachel Maddow started promoting her big scoop about President Trump's tax returns, she made it seem like it would be the shocker story of the year. Trump resolutely refused to release his tax returns during the campaign, a break from tradition for presidential candidates. So many in the media were anxiously awaiting what they expected were embarrassing revelations. Turns out that in 2005 — the only return Maddow got her hands on — Trump paid a huge amount of taxes: $38 million to be exact. Based on his income for the year, that worked out to a tax...

OutVets, which marched in Boston’s 2015 St. Patrick’s Day parade after decades of resistance from organizers, said on its Facebook page that the reason for the denial to this year’s parade is unclear, but “one can only assume it’s because we are LGBTQ.”

In a short, nearly 10 minute address in the rain, O’Donnell avoided jokes and kept the tone serious. She accused Trump of treason and aiding Russia. Trump, who has traded insults with O’Donnell for years, has denied having any connection to Russia. The FBI and the Senate Intelligence Committee are currently investigating Russia’s tampering in the 2016 election and the president’s campaign staff’s alleged contacts with Russian officials.

Re-raped by a political system that ordains a clown – really bad.” The Divergent star made the claim in a Huffington Post video titled, “Ashley Judd describes being triggered by Trump.” Sporting a so-called “Pussy Hat” popularized by feminist activists, Judd said the same...

    Transgender people will no longer be classified as “mentally ill” in Sweden, the country’s main national health authority has announced, in a decision widely criticized as overdue. Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare, or Socialstyrelsen, announced late on Friday that it would no longer automatically apply the diagnosis “gender dysphoria” to transgender patients. “…more than anything, this change has an important symbolic value,’ Kristina Bränd Persson, the organization’s head, said in a press release. “This is a completely reasonable change. Many divisions and categories are obsolete. For us, the decision is uncontroversial. We tend to follow the changes the...

    In an article written for the "LGBTQ Nation", a pro-homosexual blog, writer Warren Blumenfeld (an anti-Christian bigot, Cultural Marxist, and supporter of terrorist Bill Ayers) claimed that schools displaying a portrait of President-Elect Donald J. Trump, even along with other presidents, could be "hate speech." Blumenfeld quoted students as well as "educators" on the "controversy" about whether or not to display President Trump's portrait in school. However, despite Blumenfeld having painted it as a raging debate, there are no other articles - anywhere - about this topic. This appears to be a non-issue that the Social Justice Warriors at the...

It appears that the term “privilege” does not apply to them. Nor do they care to learn what it is. Imagine being a black student on Penn’s campus with even one of these types of professors. I had three. And each one of those professors either did not care to learn about their white privilege, or lied to me and said that they did.

His hand was more or less a “birth defect,” according to body modification website ModBlog. Jason trained in first aid for months and eventually severed his arm with a power tool. He also allowed people to think it was an accident for years. If you think this is wrong in any way, you’re a bigot — at least if you follow trans-logic to its natural conclusions.

    Hillary Clinton was greeted by sobbing, ecstatic women on her way out of an event on Capitol Hill in Washington on Thursday. The ardent supporters thanked the Democratic presidential nominee for running for president, albeit unsuccessfully. The group of 20-something-year-olds cried as Clinton shook their hands. Clinton was in the company of former vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, a Democratic senator from Virginia. Clinton spoke at Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's portrait unveiling in the Russell Senate Office Building. After the Reid event, Hillary Clinton greeted several Kaine staffers and young supporters, some of whom can be heard sobbing in...

    Dr. Jill Stein, along with her campaign staff and fellow Green Partiers, came all the way to Trump Tower this morning to blast his “anti-verification campaign” and tell him to stop spreading false information her recount efforts in three swing states. Early Monday morning, the Stein campaign announced that a federal judge in Michigan granted the campaign’s emergency request to immediately start the statewide recount. On Nov. 28, the campaign said Pennsylvanian voters filed recount requests in more than 260 precincts across the state and two days ago that it would file for emergency relief in federal court to demand...

    During the last election campaign all of a sudden I kept hearing about the Alt-Right. Since I thought I was pretty well read and had never heard of them, I considered them to have the same social relevance as a Miley Cyrus song. I decided to investigate this supposed social phenomenon as soon as the election was over and I was done writing about real issues important to the campaign. I started by sending emails to mainstream Republicans asking them if they knew anyone who considered themselves members of the Alt-Right. The answer was a universal no. Then I sent...

    What would we do without psychological studies about sex and gender?  We've had studies that most women are "part lesbian" and a lack of access to sports bras deters girls from playing sports.  We've had a study showing that women are more likely to become lesbian if they don't have ready access to men and a landmark study showing that female chimpanzees are more likely to be domineering feminists. And now we have a new study concluding that white, masculine men are more likely to be mentally ill

    Dunham said she left the party early and was informed of Clinton’s loss when a friend called and told her. The actress wrote that as a result of her support for Clinton throughout her campaign, she received “threats and abuse” at a level she could never have imagined. However, she remained hopeful that her detractors represented “the dying moans of the dragon known as the patriarchy being stabbed again and again in the stomach.” Dunham continued: We believed that on November 9, they’d be licking their wounds while we celebrated. It is painful on a cellular level knowing those men...
