    As relations between Twitter and its conservative users continue to deteriorate, a new conservative-friendly alternative is gaining steam with its stated devotion to true freedom of speech. Founded by John Matze and Jared Thomson, Parler bills itself as a “non-biased free speech driven entity that “accepts your right to express your thoughts, opinions and ideals online.” Whereas Twitter and Facebook have steadily adopted and expanded roles as adjudicators of “productive” versus “hateful” or “misleading” speech, Parler says it “aims to empower users to control their social experience. Users can be responsible to engage content as they see fit.” The platform...

    A star cross country runner said she will no longer wear a jersey bearing her high school’s name — Robert E. Lee — and is pushing for a renaming of the 62-year-old campus, according to reports. Trude Lamb, 16, an incoming sophomore at the school who was adopted from Ghana back in 2014, wore the school’s jersey, emblazoned with “Tyler Lee,” throughout her freshman year — but has had enough, CNN reported.

    Former White House national security adviser John Bolton said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that he plans to vote for Joe Biden over his former boss President Trump in November.Why it matters: While Bolton's scathing upcoming memoir about his time in the Trump White House makes clear his disdain for the president, he is a lifelong Republican and conservative who runs two political action committees dedicated to supporting GOP candidates.What he's saying: “In 2016 I voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton,” Bolton told the Telegraph. “Now, having seen this president up close, I cannot do this again. My...

    Barron Trump is a wonderful person. At only thirteen years old he has dignity and grace, and I read that he has a very high IQ. Barron is outstanding, and President Trump wants his son educated. While every president’s child over the past 35 years has attended Sidwell Friends, the White House has confirmed Barron is attending St. Andrew’s in Potomac, Maryland. He is the first presidential child to do so. In a statement, Melania praised the school for “its diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.” He needs to be smart because leftists are constantly attacking him! The same...

    Sometimes, people need more than just a sandwich or a burger. After testing the concept in 2018, Chick-fil-A is bringing meal prep kits to participating locations nationwide. The move comes after the chain's restaurants were forced to shut down their dining rooms due to the coronavirus pandemic. With grocery stores also facing challenges due to panic-buying and social-distancing regulations, Chick-fil-A says the meals will also address challenges customers may be facing at dinner time.

    The German Bundesliga is poised to become the first sports league I follow to go back to work. In fact, players are already at work. They are practicing in anticipation of matches to be played in early May. When the Bundesliga season came to a halt, teams had nine matches left to play. And, for once, there was a genuine race for the championship. Normally, Bayern Munich has the top spot all but locked up by mid-March. This season, though, three additional teams were in contention. Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, and Borussia Mönchengladbach are all within six points (two games,...

    A Florida man encased himself in concrete outside the Governor’s Mansion in the state capital apparently to protest prison conditions related to the coronavirus. A Tallahassee police spokesman says 28-year-old Jordan Mazurek put PVC pipes horizontally into two 55-gallon plastic drums filled with concrete, with some sort of mechanism that locked his arms in place.

    Catherine Zeta-Jones got married almost 20 years ago, but she's reportedly only just seen her entire collection of wedding photos for the first time. According to the Daily Mail, the actress revealed that she'd never seen most of the official snaps from her nuptials. Zeta-Jones allegedly said, "I looked at the proofs and that was it - I never made an album. The photographer got in touch recently, so about three weeks ago I got to see all my wedding photographs. It was a wonderful day." While it's unclear why the Oscar-winning star had waited quite so long to see...

    UPDATE: An earlier version of this article misgendered Sam Smith as 'him'. It should have read 'them'. The error has been corrected. At the iHeart 'Living Room Concert for America' held on Sunday, March 30, Elton John hosted an hour-long special to raise funds for all the heroes and pillars of society working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic: aka the health care workers and first responders. The event saw performances by Billie Eilish, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, Tim McGraw, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, H.E.R., Sam Smith and more. However, what caught social media's...

    VIDEO Leftist voices have already weighed in on Tulsi Gabbard endorsing Joe Biden when she dropped out of the presidential race and they are far from happy with her. The reactions range from disgust to sadness and even to being resigned to Trump's ultimate victory in November. In fact, it is even starting to sound as if some among the left will be SUPPORTING Trump in the election since their other options have been closed off.
  • Why did CBS cancel ‘Hawaii Five-O?’

    Question: I want to know why Hawaii Five-O has been canceled. It’s been a hit since its first episode 10 years ago. It makes no sense to have a show that is so good and has great ratings to be canceled. —Mary Matt Roush: Networks don’t always feel compelled to give a “why” when it comes time to ending a long run, but it usually has a lot to do with the business of show. While Hawaii is popular, and does well in the international market, any show becomes increasingly expensive over the long haul when it comes to renewing...
  • Wikipedia says Dr Fauci is 79. Should he be out and about right now?

    Wikipedia says Dr. Fauci was born December 24, 1940 (age 79). If that's his age, it puts him in the high risk group for dangerous impacts if he were to contract COVID-19. He is definitely doing a public service by letting the American people know the magnitude of the potential crisis. But is he putting himself at risk by going around to TV studios and doing all these press conferences? Has anyone seen where the media has asked him if he has been tested, and whether he has considered limiting his social outreach because of his age? In other words,...

    After South by Southwest was cancelled on Friday over concerns about the coronavirus, two of its founders told the Austin Chronicle that the film festival doesn’t have insurance to cover the cancellation. Nick Barbaro, a co-founder of SXSW who is also the publisher of the Chronicle, told the paper that the festival does not have cancellation insurance relating to a disease outbreak or a policy that would be triggered by the city declaring a local state of disaster. “We have a lot of insurance (terrorism, injury, property destruction, weather). However, bacterial infections, communicable diseases, viruses and pandemics are not covered,”...

    In Syria’s last opposition stronghold, the worst fears of millions of people are coming true. With the help of brutal Russian airstrikes, Syrian government forces have seized about a third of Idlib Province over the last two months, pushing over 900,000 of the region’s 3.5 million people out of their homes and north toward the nearby Turkish border, where another 800,000 displaced people already live in crude, overcrowded camps. The current wave of refugees fleeing Idlib, about 80 percent of whom are women and children, is now the largest exodus of Syria’s nine-year conflict. Aid agencies are overwhelmed, and food...

    Meghan Markle has told friends there is nothing 'legally stopping' her and Prince Harry from using their Sussex Royal name, despite the Queen banning them from using it, DailyMail.com has learned. The 38-year-old complained to her inner circle that using the name 'shouldn't even be an issue in the first place and it's not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils,' the insider said. They added: 'Meghan said she's done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry.' On Tuesday, DailyMail revealed the Queen...
