    Barack Obama is doing everything in his power to encourage average Americans to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare. In fact, he's doing everything he possibly can to keep the legislation that has been deemed his legacy, from dying. On Monday, Obama shared a video, reminding Americans to sign up in case they get "very sick" in 2019. No jump shots. No ferns. No memes. Not this time. I’m going to give it to you straight: If you need health insurance for 2019, the deadline to get covered is December 15. Go to https://t.co/ob1Ynoesod...

    The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces. Lemon made that statement as Cuomo was signing off his primetime show October 29, as the pair complained about Trump’s rhetoric on illegal immigration. The liberal journalists, taking a note from their peers, tied it to the recent horrific murders at a Pittsburgh synagogue and a Kroger grocery store (because of course somehow everything is...

    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Friday evening that she opposed Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, becoming the only Republican senator to come out against President Trump's nominee. "I will be a no tomorrow," Murkowski said in a speech on the Senate floor after describing how she had come to lean against voting to confirm Trump's second nominee to the high court in a final vote on Saturday. But Murkowski said that in the final tally she would ask that her vote be recorded as "present," saying she was doing it as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), who is...

    Jane Fonda has a new biopic being released on Netflix this week called Jane Fonda in Five Acts, so of course sat down for a tell-all with USA Today to talk about her life in the limelight, her struggles with insecurity, and that infamous anti-war photo prompting millions to dub her “Hanoi Jane” -- something she says she deeply regrets. Published on Monday, the article presented the profile of a woman, who hadn’t (until recently) ever felt comfortable in her own skin. Fonda detailed how the early suicide of her mother, the aloofness of her father, and the pressure of...

    Flashback to November 2010. A video we posted almost eight years ago of Sen. John McCain on CNN praising Gov. Sarah Palin up one side and down the other. He even compared her to Ronald Reagan, saying “I think she’s doing a great job,” and “I’m proud of her.” Also remember that Sarah Palin went to Arizona and endorsed John McCain for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2010........(video)......Palin stood up for McCain when he needed it most. What a contrast to numerous media reports that indicate Palin was not invited to attend McCain’s upcoming funeral service. Some say there...

John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

    For Democrats and their flunkies, history is all bunk unless it is self-serving. The reason history is bunk to the Democrats is because history is a ledger of their perennial infatuation with monsters of the left – Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Fidel – including Putin, until it serves their interest to turn on a dime, as opportunists do, against those whom they were peddling a moment ago as friends and allies. Take Putin, for instance, when Obama and Hillary were signaling "reset" with Moscow, and Obama whispering to then-Russian president Dmitri Medvedev in 2012 while the mic was hot to...

    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for women to get more involved in social movements because men have been "getting on my nerves." "Women, in particular, by the way, I want you to get more involved," Obama said while hosting a town hall for young African leaders in South Africa. "Because men have been getting on my nerves lately. I mean, every day, I read the newspaper and I just think like, brothers what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us? Obama added that "empowering more women on the continent" would "lead to some better policies" right away....

    Showtime and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen rebuffed former GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's claim that she was "duped" into a prank interview for the British actor's new series. The network said in a statement on Monday that Baron Cohen conducted the interview for his new show "Who is America?" dressed as one of his new characters, Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., Ph.D. But contrary to Palin's claim that the character was intended to be a disabled vet, Showtime said that the show's premiere on Sunday proved that wasn't the case. "There has been widespread misinformation over the past week about...

    SNIP Palin appeared on ABC's “Good Morning America” on Friday to talk about the interview Baron Cohen staged for his new Showtime satirical series “Who is America?” The former governor of Alaska told host Robin Roberts that Baron Cohen showed her “propaganda” about sex changes and transgender people and claimed that Chelsea Clinton was the “recipient of a government-funded sex change.” “It got worse and worse and worse as the minutes went on in this bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating interview,” Palin said. “It mocked middle class Americans, it mocked our values, it mocked the disabled.” Palin said she had had...

    Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel says that the American people have had enough of the type of anti-Trump humor that he regularly spews and that it is now time for him to “make fun of ourselves.” In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts. “Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said. “So, I don’t know, I don’t know...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in his upcoming memoir that he does not regret alerting the FBI about the so-called Steele dossier, which includes allegations about President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published...

    CNN's Christiane Amanpour, who was just announced as Charlie Rose's replacement on PBS after he was fired over sexual assault allegations, was quick to denounce the Trump administration for its decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal Tuesday. "This is the regime change crew," she said on CNN. "They're back in town. They're ascendant." Some of the newest members of Trump's national security team include National Security Advisor John Bolton, who has often been criticized as too hawkish, and new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Speaking from the White House, Trump announced the U.S. would be leaving the...
