    According to the store's website, the shoe serves up "toast-ed leather, smashed avocado textured suede, red pepper flake collar lining." And, because branding is key, "the 'Saucamole' shout out on the heel." The shoes are geared towards men, with a size conversion chart available to women who want to get in on the action.

    by Sheri Urban | 24News Late last month, Jussie Smollett’s claim about being attacked by two White Trump supporters in MAGA hats in Chicago led Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris to unleash a stunning tweet calling the attack a “modern day lynching:” But with Smollett’s story collapsing into a sick, race-baiting hoax, Harris was asked about the tweet on Monday was on her first campaign visit to New Hampshire. To say she was at a loss for words is an understatement. Kamala short-circuited…
  • Burnt toast could be more toxic than TRAFFIC FUMES, scientists warn

    Burnt toast can expose people to more pollution than if they were standing at a busy road junction, a study has claimed. Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin found burnt toast was especially harmful and the safest way was to “go for gold” – allowing the bread to turn a light gold colour. The team of experts built a mock-up of a three-bed house and equipped it with monitors to assess how everyday activities impacted on air quality. Roasting and frying can also prove to be toxic, the research found. Researchers in the US found the least harmful...
  • Fairfax accuser to speak with prosecutor after he threatens to file criminal complaint

    The woman who accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in Boston 15 years ago says she will now share her allegations with the local district attorney — after the politician threatened to pursue her for filing a “false criminal complaint.” Suffolk DA Rachael Rollins said earlier Wednesday that she’d reached out to lawyers representing accuser Vanessa Tyson about her allegation that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. In a response to the Boston Globe, Fairfax’s spokeswoman reiterated his denial and said he’d cooperate with an...

    Four staffers to Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax have quit in the wake of allegations of sexual assault and rape made against him days ago. Two of the three employees on Fairfax's state payroll and two employees working for his political action committee (PAC) have departed. As a part-time lieutenant governor, Fairfax keeps a small team of aides working on his behalf in Richmond. "The Lt. Governor appreciates the amazing service of his former staff members. Their work and dedication was incredible. He certainly wishes them well and appreciates their service to the Commonwealth of Virginia," said his political spokeswoman,...

    The Hill ^ | February 7, 2019
    Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) said on Thursday that he will support William Barr’s attorney general nomination, becoming the first Democrat to do so. “I have concluded that Mr. Barr is qualified for the position of Attorney General and his record strongly suggests he will exercise independent judgment and uphold the best interests of the Department of Justice,” Jones said in a statement. The Senate Judiciary Committee is poised to vote on Barr’s nomination Thursday. The Senate is expected to vote on it this month. Jones is on the ballot in 2020 in the deeply red state of Alabama and is...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) declined a reporter's request to perform Michael Jackson's "moonwalk" dance during a press conference after he said he wore blackface in the 1980s while dressed as the performer. **SNIP** "That same year [as the previous racist photo was taken], I did participate in a dance contest in San Antonio [Texas], in which I darkened my face as part of a Michael Jackson costume," Northam told reporters Saturday at a press conference. "I look back now and I regret that I did not understand the harmful legacy of an action like that," Northam said. "It is...

    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...
  • These Food Products Are Considered “Healthier” For Kids By The Food Industry

    In response to criticism over its role in the childhood obesity epidemic, the food industry vowed to only run TV ads for “healthier” foods to kids. Critics say the industry’s self-imposed rules don’t do much beyond giving them good publicity.Whether Tony the Tiger is declaring Frosted Flakes “grrreat” or a manic bird is going “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” food commercials remain mainstays of after-school TV even as childhood obesity has become a health crisis. For the last decade, the food industry has defended those ads in part by saying its products are relatively healthy — according to nutrition criteria it...

    The international climate mob have made President Trump an offer he can’t refuse: “Stay in Paris – or the U.S. gets it!” Among the threats made so far, should the president honor his election trail promise to quit the UN Paris climate agreement. The U.S. will lose $6 trillion worth of jobs in “clean” energy. The U.S. will become a “rogue country”. The U.S. will be removed from Angela Merkel’s Weihnachtskarte list. The U.S. may become the victim of further weaponized handshakes and other typically Gallic “your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” insults from prepubescent...

And it's important to sit with your thoughts every now and then and that did help me reconnect with what this whole campaign is about."

    FLORIDA: Trump 42 - Clinton 39 OHIO: Clinton 41 - Trump 41 PENNSYLVANIA: Trump 43 - Clinton 41 With a drop in grades on honesty and moral standards, Democrat Hillary Clinton loses an 8-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in Florida, and finds herself in too-close-to-call races in the three critical swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today. Clinton loses ground on almost every measure from a June 21 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. The Swing State Poll focuses on Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania because since 1960 no...

    ... His history with the gay community is a long one. He donated to charities focused on the AIDS crisis in the late 1980s and early ’90s. In 2000, when he briefly considered running for president, he gave an interview to The Advocate, a gay magazine, in which he supported amending the 1964 Civil Rights Act to “include a ban of discrimination based on sexual orientation.” “It would be simple. It would be straightforward,” Mr. Trump said in the interview, adding, “It’s only fair.” Sixteen years later, gay rights advocates are still trying to persuade Congress to pass a similar...

    The Washington Post ^ | March 27, 2016 | Robert O'Harrow Jr.
    Hillary Clinton’s email problems began in her first days as secretary of state. She insisted on using her personal BlackBerry for all her email communications, but she wasn’t allowed to take the device into her seventh-floor suite of offices, a secure space known as Mahogany Row. For Clinton, this was frustrating. As a political heavyweight and chief of the nation’s diplomatic corps, she needed to manage a torrent of email to stay connected to colleagues, friends and supporters. She hated having to put her BlackBerry into a lockbox before going into her own office. Her aides and senior officials pushed...
  • Beck Goes Full Bible: I ‘Believe That Ted Cruz Actually Was Anointed’ by God

    Breitbart published an article called “Robert Jeffress Rebukes Glenn Beck for Criticism of Southern Evangelicals,” which quoted Baylor professor Dr. Thomas S. Kidd as saying, “There are many reasons why devout Christians should hesitate to vote for Donald Trump, but God has not revealed Ted Cruz as the divinely anointed alternative, either.” Beck took this to heart and spent quite a while clapping back at them on his show today. Beck’s devotion to Cruz certainly is religious. He has fasted for the man. He has foretold violence if Cruz is not elected. He even theorized that God killed Justice Antonin...
