  • Biden: World Leaders Ask Me For Assurance That Trump Won’t Be Prez (More idiocy)

    Talking Point Memo's Livewire ^ | July 27, 2016 | Allegra Kirkland
    Vice President Joe Biden claimed Wednesday that Donald Trump’s ignorance of foreign policy has prompted world leaders to assure him that he won’t really assume the presidency. “Every place I go, whether I'm reaching across the table to try to solve a problem with Xi, the president of China, or I'm down in New Zealand with the prime minister, they go, ‘Tell me, Trump—that can't happen, can it?” Biden said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I'm not joking.” The Vice President said that their fears were well founded given that Trump “knows nothing about foreign policy.” Like President Barack Obama told...

    Just as Elon Musk’s revolutionary Hyperloop technology was starting to look like a serious business model, there are signs that one of the most promising companies commercializing the technology may be facing some serious internal problems. Hyperloop One is one of the two most prominent companies trying to develop commercial versions of the Hyperloop. The company is now facing an explosive lawsuit from one of its co-founders, which may end up permanently derailing the firm’s ambitions. Hyperloop One is based in downtown LA and claims to be building a fifth mode of transportation based on Elon Musk’s original concept. The...

    While many criticized Donald Trump’s speech Thursday night at the Republican National Convention as largely doom and gloom, it was what the audience shouted back at the presidential nominee that has Glenn Beck worried. I said, ‘The winning campaign will be led by a leader who convinces you to chant back, ‘Yes, we will,’” Beck told his radio listeners, referencing the famous slogan associated with President Barack Obama’s successful campaign. “But how foolish was I because I had half the puzzle piece.” He continued, “Little did I know the power of one individual that could convince those people who are...

    Urban Outfitters putting out a controversial T-Shirt comes as no surprise to anyone. With a track record that includes selling a mock blood stained Kent State sweatshirt and a shirt that resembled the uniforms worn by gay prisoners at Nazi concentration camps, the brand are often called up for questionable design. Their latest foray into the political sphere is as lucrative and risky. Ordinarily you tend not to see multi-million dollar worldwide brands weighing in on political debate but the American presidential race has proved to be a tempting source of revenue for this clothing brand, who are currently selling...

    This year, February 27, Pokémon (pocket monster) turned 20. It was created by Japanese game designer Satoshi Tajiri for Nintendo as a video game for the old Gameboy handheld video game platform. My sons still own theirs. It was introduced to the United States in 1998. Nintendo was quick to capitalize on its popularity. The video game soon spawned a celebrated trading card game, books, movies and a television series. The tag line of Pokémon is: “Gotta Catch Em All.” Since then, at least a few of the Pokémon characters have gained international recognition. One of the most recognized characters,...

    What killed the dinosaurs? It’s a question as old as – well the dinosaurs themselves, and one that everyone from school children to scientists have been asking for decades. Movies like Jurassic Park and the Land Before Time only heighten that sense of wonder and raise the stakes behind that question. Now according to a new scientific study, it seems that black gold may have been the source of the dinos’ demise. Japanese researchers at Tohuku University and the Meteorological Research Institute authored a recent study in the research journal Scientific Reports suggesting that a meteor impact 66 million years...

    This radio personality gets more than he bargained for when he decided to punch a set bear trap. We don’t really know who pitched this idea, but these radio personalities at Rover’s Morning Glory in Cleveland decide that Dieter should put his arm in a bear trap. Bear traps are mostly in disuse now, and the bear trap itself was made as a huge hulking trap to hold a half-ton-bear or more. A 200-pound man is definitely no match against the raw power of the double long springs that power this beast of a bear trap from the past. See...

    In an analysis of moral turpitude crimes, the Fourth Circuit recently found that embezzlement is not tantamount to theft for purposes of the Immigration and Nationality Act. In the case at bar, it involved a man who was under threat of removal from the United States for having committed an "aggravated felony." But it also shines a light on a rather peculiar question. Just when is embezzlement theft? Is all property from fraudulently-obtained consent a form of theft? Mena v.

    In the wake of Britain’s controversial “Brexit” vote, the United Kingdom gets a new prime minister tomorrow. But Theresa May, the U.K.’s former Home Secretary, will succeed David Cameron without ever being elected. Why? It turns out that it’s possible for someone to take the most powerful role in Britain without winning the public’s vote. The reason: Parliamentary democracy. Unlike the United States, which has a presidential system of democracy and directly elects officials, Britain elects a parliament once every five years. Each member of the British House of Commons belongs to a political party, and the party that wins...

Fraire, 22, who is Xicana (Chicana) and a member of MEChA, a national Chicano/a activist student organization, attended a protest outside of the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on Friday. Inside, Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, was scheduled to speak at the Western Conservative Summit. But outside on the street, Denver Police, donned in riot gear, had set...

Either he didn't want his freedom, or he wanted to be locked up because any sensible citizen knows you just don't do that. Hand blamed drugs for his crime "fetish." Well, the judge didn't find it funny nor did he think Hand should get a slap on the wrist as pulling a weapon to steal and placing lives in danger is not a ticket to...

The Harry Walker Agency is a speaker’s bureau, which represented Hillary Clinton. On top of the $225,000 fee for her 20 minute speech, the agency gave the UNLV Foundation “standard travel expenses” for Clinton. This “include[s] a chartered roundtrip private air transportation (e.g., a Gulfstream 450 or larger jet),...

Unless, of course, those companies make laundry detergent in Italy or China. Or unless they're Fiat. Alas, Fiat has learned that the hard way, after facing serious backlash over an owner's manual distributed to customers in Argentina. Most startlingly, the manual assumed that cars would always be driven by men, with women only riding as "co-pilots" in the passenger's seat or back seat. It also assumed that women don't know...

    In an armchair experiment where humans are thought of as no wiser than animals, scientists have found that climate change could empty some nations by 2100. A warming of 2 degrees Celsius would cause 34 percent of the world’s population to migrate more than 300 miles, to places on the fringes of the tropics where the temperatures are milder. Dramatic population declines might occur in Mexico, Central America, Africa and India. The results were published today in Scientific Reports. The scientists are cautious about the predictive power of their thought experiment, particularly as it relates to humans. People, unlike animals,...

    Every now and then, a distant star called KIC 8462852 dims by as much as 20 percent. That's huge. Even a passing planet as big as Jupiter would only block about 1 percent of the star's light. Ruling out a planet, scientists have no idea what could be eclipsing the star (which is informally known as 'Tabby's Star'). The leading hypothesis is a family of really big comets, but that doesn't quite fit. Astronomer Jason Wright pointed out that the light patterns are consistent with what we'd expect if aliens had built a Dyson swarm of solar collectors around the...

Very few people find total balance and manage to maintain that balance. Consequently, our lives are a continuous roller coaster ride.

    Comas. Ha ha. There’s a funny topic. In the news recently was the story of a man named Jake Booth, who is a 35-year-old Army veteran living in Florida. He had suffered a heart attack as a result of a bad case of pneumonia and was put into a medically-induced coma. He woke from the coma on April 3, after a full 48 days of lying unconscious in a hospital bed. As he slowly opened his eyes, he saw his closest friends and family members sitting anxiously by his side, waiting for him to speak his first words. You would...

First of all, let me say that this is sick. An Abomination. And As mentioned by many I know as well as people in the videos down below you should watch, it is a sign of how evil and immoral America and the west has become. Michael savage is right when he said that Caitlyn Jenner is the...
  • Feminist Says Air-Conditioning Is Sexist. Out Loud. On Live TV. In Front Of The Entire World.

    Oh good grief, not this again. So, there’s this feminist who writes for the Telegraph in the UK and she was on one of their news shows talking about how air-conditioning is sexist. Somehow, she managed to say this with a straight face, which is a far cry from what I was doing as I watched this clown show – So, the women in her office building are standing around resembling human popsicles and her best idea was to go on TV and complain about it? Like, you didn’t talk to whoever sets the thermostat in your building and ask...

    A member of the United Church of Christ’s former Executive Council and a transgender leader within the denomination has been appointed to serve on President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-based Neighborhood Partnerships.

"Given the current political climate, I believe it's important that a voice of faith representing the transgender and gender non-conforming community—as well as a person of my years, nearly 82—be present and heard in these vital conversations," said Satin, who was involved in the church’s 2003 decision to affirm the inclusion of transgender people...

  • The Transgender Talk I Never Thought I'd Have with My 6-yr Old Son

    On Friday I shared why I was feeling a bit bitchy, bigoty, and conflicted click hereAs a basic recap, my son's kindergarten class had a new intern last week: a male who appears to be transgendering, in desperate need of a training bra, and wearing drag-queen quality makeup. Writing the post on Friday was cathartic, and I had basically come to the conclusion that my son would probably not notice the things I did about the new intern and that any discussion on my part would be more harmful than helpful. I was wrong. He did notice it and brought...
