    My first thought after hearing of this was, “I bet AOC and her ‘Squad’ in the House would welcome a law like this.”My second thought was, “Maybe AOC’s right that right-wingers spend too much thinking about her.”We should be thinking about Trump in this case, not her. You want looser libel laws to make it easier for him to sue the “fake news media”? Okay, but remember that the left will avail itself of those laws too. Call a male-to-female transgendered person a “he” on Twitter and who knows how much you might owe. Caroline Farrow said Surrey Police...

    A series of prominent Democrats demanded Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's resignation on Friday, excoriating him for appearing in a racist yearbook photo showing one person dressed in blackface and another in the KKK's signature white hood and robes. The calls came from a number of 2020 presidential candidates, members of Congress and prominent liberal organizations, all of whom said Northam's apology on the issue was not enough. The NAACP also called for Northam to leave office. Those calls, however, were not echoed by Virginia Democrats, including Sens. Tim Kaine and Mark Warner. Both said they were shocked and offended by...
  • Senate: Rating Changes in Four Races

    10/04/2018 12:48:43 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 22 replies
    Two things tend to happen in the final weeks of an election cycle: a few races that we’ve been watching become more competitive while others that had the potential to become very close recede to safer columns for the party holding the seats. Both are true when it comes to today’s rating changes. Ratings Changes: Montana (D – Tester): Lean Democrat to Toss Up → Ohio (D – Brown): Lean Democrat to Likely Democrat ← Nebraska (R – Fischer): Likely Republican to Solid Republican → New Jersey (D – Menendez): Likely Democrat to Lean Democrat → MONTANA: There was a...

    Publix is backing down in a standoff with survivors of this year's mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, saying it has suspended political contributions. The regional supermarket chain, which is based in Florida, announced its decision amid a "die-in" at several Publix stores in the state to protest the supermarket chain's financial support for a gubernatorial candidate who opposes gun control. Publix said Friday in a statement that it will "suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes."

    The Saudi Arabian prince arrested last week for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at the Beverly Hills mansion he was renting is just the latest rich and well-connected Kingdom VIP accused of running amok in America and around the world. Majed Abdulaziz al-Saud was arrested Sept. 23 and charged with sodomy, battery and false imprisonment before being freed on $300,000 bail. The alleged attack, revealed after a passerby saw the bleeding victim scaling a wall to escape the $37 million mansion, is one of several similar cases involving suspects with ties to the Saudi royal family. Detectives also are...

    Discovered inside the huge tranche of secretive Obamatrade documents released by Wikileaks are key details on how technically any Republican voting for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would technically also be voting to massively expand President Obamas executive authority when it comes to immigration matters. The mainstream media covered the Wikileaks document dump extensively, but did not mention the immigration chapter contained within it, so Breitbart News took the documents to immigration experts to get their take on it. Nobody has figured how big a deal the documents uncovered...

His younger sister Jessica can't believe the big brother who always protected her now needs her help.
  • Woman eats only Starbucks items for a year

    One Seattle-area woman just gave the phrase "Starbucks junkie" a whole new meaning. For an entire year, Beautiful Existence (yes, that's her name) ate all of her meals exclusively at the company's brands and documented it. "I started designing these yearlong challenges, and I knew I wanted to do an eating challenge because eating is a really large challenge that many people are interested in and want to take on," said Existence in a phone interview.

    Anthony Weiner’s campaign did not respond Tuesday to repeated inquiries about a new set of unverified images suggesting that he exchanged sexually charged messages — and an explicit image — with a woman last summer.The screenshots of conversations — on the nightlife site The Dirty — could not be independently confirmed. They consist of screenshots of exchanges on Facebook and the lesser-known social network Formspring between a woman (whose avatar is blurred) and a man alleged to be (and who she appears to believe) is Weiner, but who also uses the handle “Carlos Danger.” The site’s anonymous tipster claims that...

    Fourteen people were injured in a stabbing incident Tuesday at Lone Star College's CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, a Harris County sheriff's spokesman said -- an incident prompting officials to urge students to take shelter. Authorities have detained one suspect -- so far the only suspect at this point, the sheriff's spokesman told reporters Tuesday afternoon. "At least four were transported by (helicopter). A suspect is in custody. The campus is on lockdown," the sheriff's department said in a news release.

    It was a shocking moment when the GE CEO, Jim Campbell, fell off his stool and onto the floor under the platform riser during Bidens speech and it was caught on video! We are waiting to hear news on if he is okay but it has to be said everytime I am forced to listen to Biden, I do the same thing. Or perhaps, he got a look at the latest budget numbers. I have to point out that Bidens comment right after the spell, and while the poor man was still on the floor was, Ladies and Gentlemen, thats...

    Score another victory for the stealth jihad: Phoenixs Sky Harbor International Airport, where the janitorial firm GCA Services recently instituted a new uniform that featured pants. But thirty Somali Muslim women who work for GSA Services protested: up to that point they had been allowed to wear skirts, and they thought that pants offended against the modesty Islam mandates for women. With help from the Council on American-Islamic Relations, this week they won permission to forgo the new uniform and wear skirts on the job.

    Colombian military intelligence used the Red Cross emblem in a rescue operation in which leftist guerrillas were duped into handing over 15 hostages, according to unpublished photographs and video viewed by CNN. What seems to be part of a red cross is seen on a bib worn by a man involved in the rescue in this official image. Photographs of the Colombian military intelligence-led team that spearheaded the rescue, shown to CNN by a confidential military source, show one man wearing a bib with the Red Cross symbol. The military source said the three photos were taken moments before the...

    The only "crisis" in health care in this country is that doctors are paid too little. (Also they've come up with nothing to help that poor Dennis Kucinich.) But the Democratic Party treats doctors like they're Klan members. They wail about how much doctors are paid and celebrate the trial lawyers who do absolutely nothing to make society better, but swoop in and steal from the most valuable members of society. Maybe doctors could get the Democrats to like them if they started suing their patients. It's only a matter of time before the best and brightest students forget about...
