    A federal appeals court on Tuesday shot down protesters’ challenge of regulations that allow Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration Committee first dibs on the location of bleachers along the Friday’s inaugural parade route. As a result of the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the inauguration committee can keep set-aside bleacher seats in place at both Freedom Plaza and in front of the Trump International Hotel - locations protesters had sought to demonstrate in during Friday’s parade. The decision is a blow to anti-war group Answer Coalition, which has challenged the National Park Services’ allocation of...

    ..Accidentally, of course. We’ve all seen the clips. A mob of protesters rioters shuffles down the center of a three-lane highway like a scene from The Walking Dead. They block traffic, delay safety and rescue vehicles, and generally cause havoc in the name of their cause du jour. Many have wondered “what happens if you just plow into them?” Well, usually what happens is you go to jail. However, in North Dakota, that may soon be a thing of the past. OK, not exactly. Before you go all David Carradine in Death Race 2000, you should know that purposely running...

    Well, this is a new one: On Saturday, women in New York City staged a topless protest against Donald Trump. Barstool Sports reporter Kat Timpf was on the scene and took some rather interesting footage. Per Timpf, nobody seemed swayed by the presence of naked breasts to change their mind on Donald Trump. A woman at the protest lamented that full-blown nudity is illegal in New York City (going topless is not), and therefore couldn't show off her Hillary Clinton-themed pubic hair.

Conway said she was brought up to "respect the office of the presidency and its current occupant and the flag, and that's it." As her candidate has, Conway went after "paid protesters" and politicians who want to "whine and cry"...

First Baptist's pastor, Robert Jeffress was square in the middle of Trump's victory party in New York City on Tuesday night. He earned the spot: He has been the president-elect's liaison to the evangelical community from virtually the start of the campaign. In October 2015, he led a group of pastors to Trump tower, laying hands on Trump and gleefully telling Fox News that "anybody that was in that meeting would've left there, first of all,...
