    A lesbian activist has urged women to eliminate men from their minds and lives in a controversial new book that claims to provide the ultimate solution to female emancipation. Paris city Councillor Alice Coffin, has revealed in her debut book, Lesbian Genius, that she doesn't listen to music, read books, or watch films made by men and her partner Yuri also only consumes things that have been produced by women. Reflecting on feminism and lesbianism in the years since French feminist Simone de Beauvoir penned The Second Sex, she claimed that the only way for women to be truly emancipated...

    Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) distanced herself from comments by former Vice President Joe Biden in the presidential debate Thursday night, after he pledged to “transition from the oil industry.” Biden made the comment as he attempted to defend his record on fracking, a technique that allows oil and gas to be extracted by breaking up rock formations deep underground. During the Democratic primary, Biden pledged to end fracking, but has since backtracked.

    Jill Biden was allowed to brush off The Post’s bombshell reporting on son Hunter Biden’s business dealings as “smears” and “distractions” in a softball interview on “The View” — even as evidence mounted that her husband, Democratic nominee Joe Biden, was heavily involved. In an interview on the ABC daytime talk show on Wednesday, the former second lady did not deny the allegations that her scandal-scarred stepson tried to leverage his family connections to land lucrative deals with overseas executives. But she also insisted the American people didn’t care about the Biden family’s murky deals with energy companies in Ukraine...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has granted U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden permanent residency rights, his lawyer said on Thursday, a step towards Russian citizenship if he wants it. Snowden, 37, fled the United States and was given asylum in Russia after leaking secret files in 2013 that revealed vast domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by the U.S. National Security Agency where he was a contractor. U.S. authorities have for years wanted Snowden returned to the United States to face a criminal trial on espionage charges brought in 2013. “His (Russian) residency permit was expiring and we asked to extend...

    WASHINGTON — Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski was warned “don’t mention Joe” in a 2017 text exchange which emerged following Bobulinski’s bombshell statement to The Post that former vice president Joe Biden was involved in his family’s plot to make millions in Communist China. The messages, obtained by Fox News on Thursday, purportedly shows Bobulinski being instructed by James Gilliar, another key player in the alleged scheme, not to make any mention of the former veep’s involvement. “Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u [sic] are face to face, I know u [sic] know that but they...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Wednesday urged President Trump to not focus on Hunter Biden during the second and final presidential debate, saying it would be "a mistake." The former GOP presidential candidate argued during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" that "the average person doesn't understand" the "complicated" nature of the story around the younger Biden and how it pertains to his father, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “Forget about all the distractions of everything except one thing: Remind the American people that it is their lives that really on the mark right now," Huckabee said on...

    Editor's Note: This column was authored by Skip Estes. It’s official: football Sundays are back. Last month the Las Vegas Raiders officially unveiled their new, state-of-the-art home at Allegiant Stadium. With a sleek, black 275-foot videoboard that looks like it belongs in the Death Star and a real grass field grown atop a track that allows it to be rolled outside for sun exposure, the facility cost $1.9 billion — a pretty penny. Yet, the Raiders organization is not breaking a sweat over the astronomical cost of their new stadium. Why? Perhaps $750 million in taxpayer dollars has something to do with...

    Senate Democrats blocked a scaled-down, GOP-only $500 billion coronavirus bill Wednesday, as talks continue on a bipartisan deal between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the White House. Senators voted 51-44 to end debate on the Republican proposal, falling short of the 60 needed to overcome the procedural hurdle. The GOP bill was widely expected to fall short—and is less than a third of the latest offer made by the White House. But Senate Republican leadership was eager to force Democrats to go on the record on coronavirus relief as the number of cases per day is on the rise...
  • Secret Service Travel Logs Match Details in Alleged Hunter Biden Emails [Joe Biden said he never took the trips that are mentioned in the emails. Secret Service travel logs prove that he did take those trips.]

    Secret Service logs obtained earlier this year by Senate investigators include dates and locations matching those discussed in the emails allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The alignment of the dates in the emails and the Secret Service protective detail logs is significant because the authenticity of the emails, first published by the New York Post last week, is the subject of heated debate. The FBI, which purportedly obtained Hunter Biden’s laptop in December last year, has not yet officially confirmed that it is in possession of the device and whether the emails...

    Intercept founder Glenn Greenwald called Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) "the most pathological liar in all of American politics" accusing the House Intelligence Chairman in an interview on Fox News of fabricating "accusations at the drop of a hat the way other people change underwear." Greenwald, the journalist who in 2013 worked with whistleblower Edward Snowden to published leaked intelligence on the National Security Agency's surveillance programs, accused Schiff of lying about Russia being behind a New York Post story on Hunter Biden's emails. “He just fabricates accusations at the drop of a hat the way that other people change underwear,"...

    In a recent interview with Breitbart News, the American rock star, Ted Nugent sounded off on Joe Biden’s gun control proposals and the power of Michigan hunters as a voting bloc. Biden’s idea to put AR-15s under the National Firearm Act of 1934, which means hunters could be obligated to register their AR-15s with federal authorities, submit their fingerprints and photos, and leave it for an FBI background check, and also they will be required to pay a $200 federal tax on guns they already own. When asked about Biden’s plan, Nugent stated: “Everybody who is paying attention knows that...

    SSC announced a customer-owned Tuatara set a new production-vehicle land-speed record of 316.11 mph. The run took place on Oct. 10 on a seven-mile stretch of State Route 160 in Nevada and required a two-way average with both runs within an hour of each other to account for wind and gradients; a public road; street tires; street fuel; and satellite tracking. The car was stock...with a four-point seating harness and no roll cage...the team overfilled the Cup 2 tires with nitrogen...the active rear wing was locked in top-speed mode so it couldn't retract or angle for braking if anything were...
