  • Are we headed toward another civil war? Can it be avoided?

    Are we headed towards another civil war? Can one be avoided? When you step back and see the ravenous hunger that the MSM has to bring down President Trump.... how they will spin and magnify and they glory in and relish in their own faults narratives… How they overload the echo chamber of news…until their masters create a crescendo.. Can the second civil war be avoided? War IS a real possibility! I fear possibly inevitable! Why? Because of who controls the news today… ...They will not let up… They have no conscience… They have no morals… They only have one...
  • Glenn Beck: Let’s face it, Trump might win by five points now

    Via Business Insider, I missed this yesterday but it’s worth watching as the polls continue to tighten, especially since Beck is conservative media’s most famous #NeverTrumper. Trump was down eight points or so last week, Beck marvels, and thanks to James Comey he may finish five points ahead on Election Day. That is … highly optimistic, as five points would be beyond Obama’s margin of victory in 2012. Harry Enten tried to gauge the odds of a Trump comeback in a piece written three weeks ago, back when Hillary was up five or six points in the national average. Enten’s...

    At the same time that Russia is condicting its latest massive military drill on the border with Ukraine, and one day after the latest stark warning by Ukraine' president Poroshenko that the simmering conflict with Russia may be set to explode again when he said on national TV that “the probability of escalation and conflict remains very significant" adding that "we don’t rule out full-scale Russian invasion", Russian president Putin made a not so subtle point that Crimea will not be relinquished when he flew into contested territory on Friday, one day after staging war games there, and said he...
  • Donald Trump Talks Like a Third-Grader

    Donald Trump isn’t a simpleton, he just talks like one. If you were to market Donald Trump’s vocabulary as a toy, it would resemble a small box of Lincoln Logs. Trump resists multisyllabic words and complex, writerly sentence constructions when speaking extemporaneously in a debate, at a news conference or in an interview. He prefers to link short, blocky words into other short, blocky words to create short, blocky sentences that he then stacks into short, blocky paragraphs. The end result of Trump’s word choice is less the stripped-down prose style of Ernest Hemingway than it is a spontaneous reinvention...

    FoxNews' The Five attacked the newly announced Ted Cruz presidential candidacy on the same day as his announcement. You expect Juan Williams and Dana Perino (a mindless Bushbot) to oppose him. But, Eric Bolling said Cruz is just not ready and Greg "Congenital Idiot" Gutfeld opined that Cruz is only running because of his own self-importance.

    The World Health Organisation’s cancer agency has declared that one of the UK’s most widely used weedkillers is “probably carcinogenic to humans”.Amateur gardeners and professional farmers have been urged to “think very carefully” about using the popular herbicide Roundup, which contains glyphosate. A summary of the International Agency for Research on Cancer's (IARC) report, published in The Lancet Oncology, said that the herbicide had been detected “in air during spraying, in water, and in food”.It had also been detected “in the blood and urine of agricultural workers, indicating absorption”....The IARC's report said that its use has increased sharply with the...
  • Why Do People Believe Scientifically Untrue Things? Because to do otherwise would be immoral.

    Reason ^ | March 15, 2013 | Ronald Bailey
    You hear a lot about the politicization of science, but the real problem is the moralization of science. The New York University psychologist Jonathan Haidt has made a compelling case that moral differences drive partisan debates over scientific issues. Dan Kahan and others at the Yale Cultural Cognition Project have identified cultural differences that bias how people assimilate information. Together, Haidt and Kahan’s research suggests that what you believe about a scientific debate signals to like-minded people that you are on their side and are therefore a good and trustworthy person. Unfortunately, this means that the factual accuracy of beliefs...

    An atheist, Buckner believes that no religious literature should be provided in government-owned lodging, and he presented that concern to management at the Amicalola Falls State Park. Officials told Buckner they would remove the Bibles from all state park resorts while the state attorney general looked into the matter. Not long afterward, however, the AG issued a ruling saying the state was on firm legal ground because it hadn’t paid for the books. On Wednesday, Gov. Nathan Deal ordered the Bibles returned. Deal argued that if the state didn’t pay for them, it can’t be seen as endorsing them. He...

    Rhode Island is poised to join nine other states and the District of Columbia in allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry. Gov. Lincoln Chafee planned to sign gay marriage legislation into law Thursday evening, immediately following a final procedural vote in the state’s General Assembly. The outcome of the vote is not in doubt. Hundreds are expected to gather at the Statehouse to celebrate the new law, which has already passed the House and Senate once. The first weddings could take place Aug. 1, when the new law would take effect. …

    Former GOP vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., now supports the rights of gay Americans to adopt children, though he still believes marriage “is between a man and a woman.” In a town hall meeting with constituents in Wisconsin on Monday, the House Budget Committee chairman said he has changed his mind on the adoption issue, even though his opinions on other aspects of gay rights have remained unchanged. To date, two Republican senators — Rob Portman of Ohio, who had been in the mix for Mitt Romney’s No. 2 spot, and Mark S. Kirk of Illinois — have...

    Matt Mitrione was suspended indefinitely by the UFC on Monday, hours after the heavyweight fighter and former NFL defensive lineman called transgender MMA competitor Fallon Fox “a lying, sick, sociopathic, disgusting freak” in an interview. “The UFC was appalled by the transphobic comments made by heavyweight Matt Mitrione today in an interview on the 'MMA Hour,'” the UFC said in a statement Monday evening. “The organization finds Mr. Mitrione’s comments offensive and wholly unacceptable and — as a direct result of this significant breach of the UFC’s code of conduct — Mr. Mitrione’s UFC contract has been suspended and the...

    ...Yet no matter what the Justices decide after withdrawing behind their velvet curtain, the courtroom debate — and the period leading up to it — made clear that we have all been eyewitnesses to history. In recent days, weeks and months, the verdict on same-sex marriage has been rendered by rapidly shifting public opinion and by the spectacle of swing-vote politicians scrambling to keep up with it. With stunning speed, a concept dismissed even by most gay-rights leaders just 20 years ago is now embraced by half or more of all Americans, with support among young voters running as high...

    RANCHO CUCAMONGA -- Corey Braun, the operator-owner of a Chick-fil-A near Foothill and Day Creek boulevards, provided dozens of free entree tickets to gay marriage supporters at a demonstration. The fast-food chain came under fire from lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, groups last year after statements from the company's chief operating officer, Dan Cathy, voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage. Braun said Cathy's statements don't coincide with the company's policy on service to its customers. "There were a lot of things said over the past year," Braun said. "I wanted to show that Chick-fil-A doesn't discriminate against anybody....

    Too many of us so called “Christians” today buy into the perversion that is prevalent in entertainment, simply because it’s there, it’s being promoted and we read or hear good reviews. The popularity of such genre does not make it acceptable for us, as Christians, to take part in it. If anything, we should be speaking out against it.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona is bound and determined to make sure we never forget the embarrassment of the birther movement. Most of us would love to put that ugly little racist blip in our history -- a time when conspiracy theorists and fools alike accused President Barack Obama of not being American. But Arpaio, a sheriff in Phoenix, Arizona, just won't give it up. Can we say beating a dead horse, people? Sometimes it seems like certain politicians just do things to help out Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, and Bill Maher. After all, how else does anyone explain Arpaio's...

    WASHINGTON, November 21, 2011 ― On November 19, 2011, Carter Lee wrote an article titled, "Mr. Cain on David Letterman: Cain Simply Can't Cut It." Others who heard the same interview thought, unlike Lee, that Herman Cain handled himself well. We remain inspired by his life story and ideas. A tit-for-tat analysis of Lee's opinion would be pointless, as it is obvious from his article that he has complete disdain for Cain, with biases so complete that he couldn't find even one thing that he liked. I would just request that he comment on something more relevant in assessing a...
  • Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Becomes First Republican To Cosponsor DOMA Repeal Bill

    WASHINGTON -- Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) has signed on as the first Republican co-sponsor of the bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. “I voted against the constitutional amendment defining marriage so I’m pleased to co-sponsor the repeal of DOMA and work with my colleagues on marriage equality,” said Ros-Lehtinen in a statement. The DOMA-repeal bill, known as the Respect for Marriage Act, now has 125 cosponsors. Under DOMA, which was signed into law in 1996, states are allowed to not recognize valid same-sex unions performed in other states. Same-sex couples are also denied federal benefits afforded to opposite-sex...

    A senior at Proviso East High School, Belinda Sanchez hopes to one day become a civil rights attorney. On Thursday, the 18-year-old got her first taste of victory, winning the right to wear a tuxedo to her upcoming senior prom. Sanchez was initially told by the Maywood school's principal, Milton Patch, that she could not wear a tuxedo to her prom and needed to wear a dress. "I was just shocked," Sanchez said.
