    A hospital in Maine is apologizing after the state's Human Rights Commission said workers had created a ďwall of shameĒ ridiculing disabled patients and incorporating confidential medical information, according to CNN. MyKayla McCann, an employee who was treated at St. Mary's Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, said that at least two co-workers looked at her medical records and that after she returned from a leave of absence she believed they were treating her differently. In September 2016, she reported her discomfort and the ďwall of shame,Ē which included details of patientsí sexual activity, bodily functions and private parts, according to...

    President Trumpís online insults directed at me on Monday were predictable after I publicly said that heís unfit for office. The tenor of his abuse only reinforces my thinking: I can no longer in good conscience support the presidentís reelection. This isnít a Road to Damascus moment; my concerns have been building publicly for a while. And Iím not seeking absolution. I just want to be part of the solution. The negatives of Trumpís demagoguery now clearly outweigh the positives of his leadership, and it is imperative that Americans unite to prevent him from serving another four years in office....

The David Horowitz Freedom Center was founded in 1968. The David Horowitz Freedom Center is dedicated to the defense of free societies whose moral, cultural and economic foundations are under attack by enemies both secular and religious, at home and abroad.

    President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Monday against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records, claiming House Democrats are simply attempting to harass him. Politico reported that in a joint statement, Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., called the Trump suit ďmeritless.Ē They claimed Trumpís suit was a tactic to delay accountability. Waters is the chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee and Schiff is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Schiff said at the time that the subpoenas were part of an investigation "into allegations of potential foreign...

    Australian feminist Germaine Greer didnít hold back when speaking about the future for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

    SUICIDE SQUAD: REASONABLE RENT AND APARTMENT ¬ĎINCIDENTS¬í By Matthew Coslett hen visitors first come to Japan, there is a constant temptation to try and save money by cutting as many corners as possible. With relocation and transportation fees all stacking up, it can be galling to think about paying the ridiculous śē∑ťáĎ„Āó„Āć„Āć„āď (security deposit) and Á§ľťáĎ„āĆ„ĀĄ„Āć„āď (¬ďkey money¬Ē) fees that most apartment owners want. One thing that foreigners attempt in an attempt to save cash is to stay in ¬ďincident apartments.¬Ē These are properties where bad things have happened. Due to their history, these apartments are often in convenient locations...

    June 27, 2017 | MosesKnows
    Why Wouldnít This Work One problem with a centrally planned government healthcare delivery program is that some receive non taxable income in the form of employer paid health care insurance premiums while others have to have to pay the premiums from their after tax income. One of two ways toward a solution is to either treat the employer paid premiums as taxable income or have the premiums paid by individuals treated as non-taxable income. The benefit to the people will come because of the Constitution and Capitalism. The Constitution limits the legislative power to control the people and Capitalism allows...

    ďAmazon just bought Whole Foods,Ē my friend texted me seconds after the announcement of the proposed acquisition. ďItís over. The world.Ē This unease is widespread, and has raised new calls for breaking up Jeff Bezosís impending monopoly by force. Surely the company, which now generates 30% of all online and offline retail sales growth in the United States, and already controls 40% of internet cloud services, has reached too far. The 3% hike in Amazonís share price since the announcementówhich would alone more than pay for the acquisitionómay attest less to the dealís appropriateness than to investorsí growing fear that...

    National Review ^ | 6-10-2017 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    He believed that the FBI director misled the public to think that the president was under investigation. At last, at least for your humble correspondent, this weekís big hearing brought clarity. I now believe President Donald Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey because he believes Comey intentionally misled the public into believing Trump was under investigation by the FBI. There is enough support for this theory that, had the president been forthright in explaining it when he dismissed Comey on May 9, there might have been considerably less uproar. Instead, Trump dissembled, as he seems hardwired to...
