    Gillette has released a new advertisement featuring a trans man shaving for the first time as his father looks on with pride. The ad features Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, a young Canadian, who says, “Growing up I was always trying to figure out what kind of man I want to become and I’m still trying to figure out what kind that I want to become.” Brown then receives encouragement and advice from his father. “Now don’t be scared. Shaving is about being confident. You are doing fine.” Brown concludes the ad saying, “It’s not just myself transitioning. It’s everyone around me...
  • Ghoulish 'MSNBC Republican' Wants Trump Admin 'Body Count, Death of 1,000 Cuts, Pain Level'

    Joy Reid billed Rick Wilson as a Republican "media strategist." A more apt term might be "sadist," or perhaps "ghoul." Wilson appeared on Reid's MSNBC show this morning to discuss the possible impeachment of President Trump. He began by analogizing Trump to the homicidal OJ Simpson, warning that Simpson "got away with it." Wilson urged Dems to adopt a go-slow approach to impeachment. Three times, he advised them to up the Trump admin "body count," while encouraging Dems to inflict a "death of 1,000 cuts," and to "raise the pain level."Get the rest of the story and view the video...
  • A.I. Songwriting Has Arrived. Don't Panic (I disagree)

    “IT’S CHEATING.” That’s the response you’ll hear from self-proclaimed music purists talking about technological innovation in song creation. Sampling, synthesizers, drum machines, Auto-Tune—all have been derided as lazy ways to make chart-topping hits because they take away the human element. (With apologies to Vanilla Ice, Gary Numan, Prince, and T-Pain.) The new argument among fans and musicians will be about the use of artificial intelligence in songwriting. According to several estimates, in the next decade, between 20% and 30% of the top 40 singles will be written partially or totally with machine-learning software. Today, recording pros can use A.I.-powered programs...
  • 'Stinks, Complete Idiot, Pathetic': Morning Joe Hurls Insults at Trump

    Self-awareness is not Morning Joe's strong suit. On the one hand, today's panel accused President Trump of acting in an immature manner in his handling of yesterday's short-lived meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. On the other, the panelists themselves unleashed at Trump a string of churlish, middle-school worthy insults. Joe Scarborough claimed Trump "stinks" at deal-making. Mika Brzezinski said the President acted like a "complete idiot." And even the normally level-headed Willie Geist got into the act, referring to Trump as "pathetic." Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. seconded Willie's sentiment, adding that Trump was also "dangerous," surprisingly eliciting a...
  • AOC says growing cauliflower is 'colonial' as she insists community gardens central to her [tr]

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that growing cauliflower in community gardens is 'taking a colonial approach to environmentalism.' The firebrand New York Democrat took to Instagram to discuss how such gardens were a 'core component' of her proposed Green New Deal on Tuesday. She discussed in the live broadcast how it was important that people of color felt they were able to grow foods familiar to them in these green spaces. The 29-year-old said: 'What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It's so important.'

    More evidence that Joe Scarborough has descended deep into the liberal fever swamp. Now he's calling on a leftist billionaire with a fixation on impeaching President Trump to shell out for a phalanx of lawyers to get Attorney General Bill Barr disbarred. Tom Steyer is the left-wing billionaire in question. He has poured tens of millions of dollars into TV ads demanding that President Trump be impeached. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough called on Steyer to direct his efforts toward having Attorney General Bill Barr disbarred. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    CHICAGO — Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg on Friday accused Vice President Mike Pence of advancing “homophobic policies,” saying that while he doesn’t know whether Pence is truly homophobic, his policies are “hurting other people” just the same. “I don’t know what’s in his heart,” Buttigieg told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview airing Friday. But, he added, “if you’re in public office and you advance homophobic policies, on some level it doesn’t matter whether you do that out of political calculation or whether you do it out of sincere belief.” “The problem is, it’s hurting other people,”...

    "Law and Order" fans, how's this for an episode? A retired judge calls for a special prosecutor to examine how Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx mishandled the notorious case of actor Jussie Smollett -- a case abandoned under peculiar circumstances that imply Foxx improperly gave the celebrity special and unfair treatment by dropping charges that he had faked and lied about a racist, homophobic attack by supporters of President Trump. The effort by Foxx's office to pre-empt appointment of a special prosecutor only intensifies questions: What's the full list of outsiders who sought to influence Foxx? Who motivated a...

  • Extinct flightless bird came 'back from the dead' because of a quirky evolutionary process

    Fox News ^ | 5/09/19 | Chris Ciaccia
    A bird that had previously gone extinct came back to life thanks to a rare evolutionary process known as "iterative evolution." The white-throated rail bird can presently be found on the island of Aldabra. Early fossils of the bird suggest it lived there thousands of years ago and died out because it could not fly to higher ground when rising sea levels threatened its safety. But thanks to "iterative evolution," which evolves similar body parts due to genetics from a similar ancestor, the bird came back from the dead. **SNIP** In order to make the determination that the extinct bird...

    This morning a post was pulled regarding the discovery of Mastadon bones in maybe Indiana. The reason cited for pulling it was "chat". I don't get it. The article was NOT a vanity; it was a published news article. Things like that are interesting and should be allowed. For God sake, they let a letter jumble puzzle be posted every morning. Does FR have a defined criteria as what is allowed and what is not. This kind of thing has happened more than once. Yes, it is Robinson's site and he can do what he wants, but to me this...

    Former Rep. Trey Gowdy reacted Friday to former FBI Director James Comey's appearance at a CNN town hall this week, saying that Comey believes he always "gets to write the moral script." "Saint James Comey," Gowdy, R-S.C., said on "Hannity," gave "pretty much the same as any other interview. He is always right. He gets to write the moral script." During the town hall, Comey said that people like outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are not of "strong character." “I think people like that, like Rod Rosenstein, who are people of accomplishment but not real sterling character, strong character,...

    TODAY, THE INTERCEPT launches “A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” a seven-minute film narrated by the congresswoman and illustrated by Molly Crabapple. Set a couple of decades from now, it’s a flat-out rejection of the idea that a dystopian future is a forgone conclusion. Instead, it offers a thought experiment: What if we decided not to drive off the climate cliff? What if we chose to radically change course and save both our habitat and ourselves?

    Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg drew a sold-out crowd to a fundraiser at an iconic West Hollywood gay bar on Thursday. Attendees at The Abbey each paid about $25 to attend the grassroots event for Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who was introduced by his husband, Chasten. “If anybody tells you whether they’re not sure if America is capable in these twisted and dark times of delivering or vindicating our hopes,” Buttigieg told the crowd, “tell them you saw at The Abbey in West Hollywood the top tier presidential candidate on his way to the White House, moments after...

Regardless of my views, the United States Military is spending billions to prepare for war against China in the...

    The founders were great but they really made a big mistake by allowing congress to go after the president all they want. The president is hands off congress. How is that fair? It seems like the president really is at a very big disadvantage. They keep saying co-equal branches. But when the president has little power over congress, it seems like congress is in a stronger position. I’m hating this. Nobody brings this up either which is annoying.
