  • About That Photograph – NASCAR Panics After Someone Caught Intentionally Promoting “Fake Noose” Story – Provide Photo of “Noose”, But Picture Makes Their Story Worse…

    Today, NASCAR released a picture of the garage pull-down rope and knot that both they and Bubba Wallace described as a “noose hanging over the car“. Except it clearly was not hanging over the car, and it clearly wasn’t a “noose” or it wouldn’t function to help pull the door down. Driver Bubba Wallace now calls it “a non-functioning noose.” Or, in simple terms, a garage pull-down rope with a loop-knot tied in the end. However, what NASCAR does not yet realize is the picture they have provided actually makes the situation worse; because the picture shows something else, something...

    Restaurants Are Toast - Not Satire This is totally devastating for all of the United States. Speaker Pelosi made an error when she voted down the fourth traunch of the Care Act because she thought that not all small businesses had bank relationships. The fact is that the only small business that do not have a relationship with a bank are drug dealers.Restocking their freezers and rent have to be included in the Care ActCall your congress person and you senators today and tomorrowWe need to work together with the Dems and rid this country of hate and haters.

    Julián Castro’s campaign will fire its staff in New Hampshire and South Carolina, an official familiar with the campaign told POLITICO. The campaign notified the state teams on Monday and their final day will be next week. The source said the campaign will continue focusing on Iowa and Nevada with a $50,000 television ad buy in Iowa beginning Tuesday morning. The moves amount to a long-shot attempt to remain in the presidential contest in the hopes of catching fire before the first contests begin next February.

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden declined to answer questions on the campaign trail this week about his son's overseas business dealings in countries where the then-vice president was conducting diplomatic work, an issue his political opponents have already begun to wield against him as he wades into the 2020 presidential campaign. More than once, after his father engaged in diplomacy on behalf of the United States in foreign countries, Hunter Biden conducted business in the same country. At two separate campaign stops on Monday, Biden avoided questions about his son while his staff blocked reporters from approaching the candidate. Biden's...
  • Biden concedes that under Obama 'a lot of people (white folks) were left behind'

    Joe Biden said the White House under President Barack Obama, when Biden was vice president, did not do enough to address the concerns of white working-class voters in the Rust Belt. "A lot of people were left behind," the 2020 Democratic candidate told the New York Times when discussing the post-recession economic recovery. "In areas where people were hard hit, I don't think we paid enough attention to their plight." Biden, 76, tried chalking up the disillusionment of white former Democratic voters to a messaging problem, saying Obama told him he didn't want to take "a victory lap [because] we...

    So that’s how the Rev. Al stays so thin. Al Sharpton outlined a super specific diet and workout regimen that for years has helped him maintain his 130-pound weight in a Q&A with GQ Thursday. The 64-year-old activist turned MSNBC host’s exercise routine has him up at 4 a.m. seven days a week — and he follows a diet that includes three slices of seven-grain toast a day. “I have to stay at a hotel with a fitness room and that also has seven-grain toast,” he told the magazine. Sharpton was once over 300 pounds, but the controversial activist has...

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 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...

    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,...

    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...
