  • Now Tim Allen Is a Racist Because He Doesn't Know How to Play Spades

    Toy Story 4 is premiering next week, which means the stars are doing interviews to promote it, which means the Internet is picking apart every syllable to find something to be angry about. Outrage mining is America's #1 growth industry. Here's a snippet from what appears to be a harmless, lighthearted celebrity interview: "You don't know how to play Spades?" "I'm gonna say I do, just 'cause I wanna move on." I thought this was kind of funny because I don't know how to play Spades* either. I don't like card games in general, and when people talk about them,...

    Cuba Gooding Jr. will turn himself into NYPD on Thursday and will be arrested for allegedly groping a woman -- but on camera he insists he did nothing wrong, and there's hard evidence to prove it. Sources connected to the Oscar winner tell TMZ ... he plans to surrender Thursday and expects to be booked for a misdemeanor charge of forcible touching. Cuba was in L.A. Tuesday night -- about to board a flight to NYC -- when a photog asked him directly about the groping allegation. Cuba says the claim he grabbed a woman's breast Sunday night at Magic...

    Thailand's players were in tears at the full-time whistle after suffering the heaviest defeat in World Cup history at the hands of the US. There were those on social media who criticized the defending champions for celebrating each goal, but Alex Morgan -- who became only the second American to score five in a World Cup match -- told reporters that "every goal counts." With the US 3-0 up by halftime, the match was effectively over. With the title holders then proceeding to score four goals in the space of six minutes early after the break, it was a rout...

    US soccer star Megan Rapinoe stuck to her resolve not to sing the national anthem ahead of the team’s first match in the Women's World Cup against Thailand in France on Tuesday. The player stood silent and stony-faced as her teammates sang along to the 'Star-Spangled Banner' in the Auguste-Delaune Stadium in Reims. The 33-year-old midfielder went on to score a goal in the game as the US women's soccer team recorded the biggest victory in World Cup history with a thumping 13-0 win over Thailand and kicked off their quest for a fourth title.

    If you want to follow a legal battle by someone who knows what he’s talking about, you could not do better than reading Legal Insurrection, William Jacobson’s website. For some time now he’s been documenting the lawsuit filed by Gibson’s Bakery, a five-generation family bakery near Oberlin College that was boycotted based on false claims of racism after they had several students arrested for shoplifting, a crime to which the students pled guilty. …a black male Oberlin College student was stopped for shoplifting wine at Gibson’s Bakery and Market in downtown Oberlin, OH. Gibson’s had been in existence since 1885,...

    Publicly accusing jurors of disregarding “the clear evidence our team presented” when the trial is not over is another baffling move by Oberlin College. There are a lot of things about the way Oberlin College handled the Gibson’s Bakery dispute and lawsuit that have had me wondering who, if anyone, is in control over there.As mentioned numerous times, “from the start of this case I have questioned the aggressive and demeaning attacks on the Gibsons as a defense strategy,” and “I’m still shaking my head at the tone-deafness of the defense in belittling this family business.” The jury seems to...

    Australian rugby star fights back after being ousted from his sport for offending gays MELBOURNE, Australia, June 7, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Committed Christian and Australian rugby star Israel Folau is claiming before Australia’s Fair Work Commission that he was dismissed by his team because of his religion. Lawyers for the former Wallabies standout confirmed Thursday that they filed papers against  Rugby Australia and the New South Wales Waratahs for breach of contract. Folau, a 30-year-old fullback, is seeking “substantial remedies” from his former employers, arguing that his termination was unlawful, according to Section 772 of the Fair Work Act that...

    Researcher Evette Alexander told Hill.TV this week that there is a gender divide on college campuses when it comes to prioritizing free speech versus inclusion. "Men and women felt quite differently on what they considered the greater priority," Alexander, who is director of learning and impact at the Knight Foundation, told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton in a "Rising" interview that aired Friday. "It was a predictor of whether they would favor free speech over inclusion or inclusion over free speech." "We found that a substantial majority of college men, 71 percent, said that promoting free speech was the...

    One of the main indicators used by economists to measure the health of the nation’s economy is housing starts – the number of private homes being built around the nation. In 2018 housing starts fell in all four regions of the nation, representing the biggest drop since 2016. While many economists point to issues such as higher material costs as a reason for the drop in housing starts, a much more ominous reason may be emerging. Across the nation, city councils and state legislatures are beginning to remove zoning protections for single-family neighborhoods, claiming they are racist discrimination designed to...

    Avengers: Endgame star Mark Ruffalo took to Twitter on Monday to promote his own Marvel licensed t-shirt, for which proceeds go toward the “fight for climate justice.” Ruffalo, who played the role of Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk in the blockbuster film franchise, urged his followers to “act fast” in purchasing the t-shirt, which declares the battle against climate change as “the fight of our lives.” The Limited Edition Charity T-shirt costs $39.99 and is officially licensed by Marvel. Proceeds from the shirt’s sale go toward The Solutions Project, an organization co-founded by Ruffalo with the aim of promoting...

    There is a reason you don’t let inmates run your asylum, allow your toddler to eat candy for dinner or tell the Labrador retriever sitting behind the wheel of your car, “OK, Duke, I guess you drive.” Those who are, mentally speaking, a few slices short of a loaf don’t get to make grown-up-people decisions. This brings me to Harvard undergraduates. In the softest and most spoiled generation of humanity ever to exist (they feel threatened by Halloween costumes and the existence of Ben Shapiro; their forebears endured World War II and Vietnam and even riding bikes without helmets), the...

    You’re not going to like this.Millennials spend more time on social media than older generations: People ages 25-34 spend 141 minutes per day on it, versus 105 for the 35-44 set. And that could be hurting both their finances and mental health.Indeed, nearly half of millennials (49%) say that their spending habits have been influenced by the photos and experiences their friends share on social media, compared with only about one-third of Americans in general, according to a data survey of more than 1,000 Americans by financial firm Charles Schwab. “Social media has become the millennials’ financial Achilles Heel.” —...

    If you live by the sword of identity politics, you're going to die by the sword of identity politics. Brie Larson, who's known as much for being a social justice warrior championing the cause of intersectionality as much as she's known for playing Captain Marvel, is facing calls to resign her largest, most lucrative acting gig to date. Those who want her to step down want her to do so in order for the producers to cast a gay woman of color. The online petition, which has garnered nearly 7,000 signatures as of the writing of this article, declares: We...

    Bre Kidman, a Saco, ME attorney who enjoys spending weekends dressed as a "queer feminist mermaid" and splashing around in kiddie pools filled with glitter, recently announced a campaign run for the Maine Democratic Senate nomination in hopes of unseating incumbent Republican Sen. Susan Collins. According to Steve Collins of the Sun Journal, "Kidman said they have been fat since they were 7, gay since age 10 and figuring out what it all means ever since." The attorney does not use traditional gender pronouns, Kidman instead asks people to use "they/them" as pronouns. “Like all other politicians, whether or not they want...

    **SNIP** A few months ago, in a cascade of disgraces both Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface, then Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women. Now the story has seemingly disappeared from the front pages, or any pages, of the local news outlets. **SNIP** University of Virginia political analyst Kyle Kondik says Northam remains in office for a number of reasons. “For one thing, Fairfax is even more toxic than he is, and the accusations against the lieutenant governor help insulate the governor. But I also think the governor...

    “Weird Al” Yankovic is in his fourth decade poking fun at the biggest pop songs around. Does he have to start apologizing for a few of them now? If so, he’s not alone. Comedians are revisiting their past material given our overly sensitive times. Often, the decision is made for them. Just ask would-be Oscar host Kevin Hart, felled by old homophobic jokes. Others are taking pre-emptive measures to avoid those “Apology Tours.” It’s why Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen apologized for their comedy hit “Superbad.” It might explain why Judd Apatow, the king of “white dude bro” humor, went...

    IOWA CITY, Iowa — Democratic voters say that more than anything, they want to beat President Donald Trump in 2020. But some worry that means putting their hope of electing the first woman president on hold. "I can hardly think about it. It makes me sick thinking about how nasty this could get for a woman,” Marianne Mason said, clutching her stomach as she waited for Sen. Kamala Harris of California to arrive at a town hall event at the University of Iowa on a recent Wednesday night. "How are they supposed to rebut someone like Trump? I want to...
