    A new company is tackling the stock photography industry’s overwhelming whiteness, one photo at a time. TONL, created by photographer and Street Ettiquette founder Joshua Kissi and entrepreneur Karen Okonkwo, launched on August 23 with a goal to provide stock photos that feature a more diverse array of subjects and scenarios. Kissi, a 28-year-old creative director of the company, told HuffPost that the inspiration behind the idea came from the personal experiences he and Okonkwo (who he met through his girlfriend) experienced in the media industry.

    Nurses at a naval hospital in Florida have been booted from their posts after sick photos went viral of them rudely posing with newborn babies and referring to the tots as “mini Satans.” One of the pics posted to Snapchat shows Allyson Thompson, a corpsman at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, flipping the bird to a baby who’s wrapped in a blanket, along with the caption, “How I currently feel about these mini Satans,” according to Action News Jacksonville. In another photo, Thompson grins as she holds a baby up by its arms. The pic was shared by a woman who identified...

    The Wall Street Journal arrived yesterday, along with its semi-annual Mens Style magazine. This is the cover:Not shocking, as the WSJ men’s style editors have been pushing metro-sexual men for the better part of two decades and the downright goofy-gay “fashion” for the past 8 years. So the sight of Jared Leto* on the cover of their Fall Issue of the Men’s Style magazine in a “Gucci coat, Lena Skadegard necklace (top), Paul Morelli necklace and his own gold necklace” was not shocking. After all, this former business journal and bastion of Brooks Brothers haberdashery is now owned by Rupert...

    Libertarianism.org, a project from the Cato Institute, claimed “Islamic teachings are consistent [with] many libertarian principles, such as tolerance, property rights & individualism” in a tweet on Tuesday. In the post linked in the tweet, Libertarianism.org also praised Ibn Khaldun as a libertarian hero, describing him as “the most consistent of the many free-market economists in Islamic history,” despite the fact that Khaldun promoted slavery. “Therefore, the Negro nation are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negroes] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated,”...

    How bad has gun violence gotten in Sacramento, Calif.? City leaders now plan to pay gang members $1.5 million for a cease-fire. Following a fatal shooting last weekend in a city park, the Sacramento city council unanimously approved a controversial program called Advance Peace in an effort to address a recent spike in violence. The program offers gang members cash stipends for graduating from school and generally staying out of trouble.

    Doing a bit of research and looking for honest opinion without searching the internet for the answer first. I realize the answers here may differ from those I've received elsewhere. To be clear: I'm not asking to be judgmental. Rather, I would just like honest answers based on individual awareness of the noted aspect of history and our own Constitution, without regard for its origin. Questions: 1. Does your memory serve that the terms describing "concentration camp" and "death camp" are interchangeable and pertain to the Nazi Jew-murdering era? 2. Are you aware that there was a German Constitution in...
  • Sheriff Arpaio Gets A Get of Jail Freebe from POTUS

    WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned a notorious former Arizona sheriff who willfully violated a federal judge’s order by unlawfully detaining individuals his officers claimed might be in the country illegally. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had previously proclaimed himself “America’s toughest sheriff,” was convicted of criminal contempt last month for violating a 2011 order that barred Arpaio and his office from detaining individuals solely based on suspicions about their legal status. Arpaio, 85, was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 5. “Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public...

    The Greatest Twitter Account EverPosted: 15th February 2013 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized 1 I was reluctant to get on Twitter… I’m really busy, and I just don’t have time to pay attention to the moronic missives of talentless rappers or some vapid celebutard’s most recent yeast infection. Seriously… if you aren’t banging Kim Kardashian, why would you give a rat’s ass about anything she has to say? But on the other hand, I find that I do like reading the tweets of other hacks… misery loves company, I suppose. But most of all, I enjoy Twitter accounts that...

    A former Austinite is now The United Methodist Church's first openly non-binary trans person to be ordained as a deacon. After 12 years, M Barclay, who prefers the pronouns them/their, can call themself reverend. It's a title that took 12 years to earn-- more than twice as long as most Methodists pursuing the same ordination. "I am just filled with joy and excitement that this wall has been broken down-- at least in this moment," says Barclay.

    An FBI translator with top-secret security clearance traveled to Syria in 2014 and married a key Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist she was assigned to investigate, causing a serious security headache to the agency. CNN reported on Tuesday that the rogue employee, Daniela Greene, lied to the FBI when she told them she was traveling to visit her parents, and instead warned her new husband he was under investigation, according to federal court records. The man Greene married was Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned ISIS recruiter...

    A Trump veto cannot be overridden and the Lib-Demo- Rhinos know it. No mistake, this terrifies them, and no amount of involuntary elitist chastening can change this. Yes, we are on to you, and it just doesn't matter anymore. A Trump veto takes away the pressure that has intimidated the Republicans for decades. Now, the question may be asked, " Has Republican intimidation been sincere, or simply an excuse to go along with the same interests that move the Democrats? ". We will see. If they are not sincere, they must be replaced. What is absolutely required, is to kill...

    It seems Hillary’s lackeys are still working to take action against our government, aloof to the fact she lost the election. The details of this group’s actions are truly sick! This group has a guide for resisting Trump’s administration and is being led by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer, Jimmy Dahman. It’s also located at the same address as a George Soros organization, The Action Network, which is this group’s parent company, via Breitbart. Dahman was a field organizer in Clinton’s campaign in Iowa, and he is the founder of The Town Hall Project. They describe themselves as “a...

    Trump, not ISIS, is America’s greatest existential threat Who is more dangerous to the American way of life: ISIS or Donald Trump? The answer is obvious: Trump. This is not some bit of clickbait. I realized anew during Thursday's press flagellation that Trump can wreak far more havoc on America, its vaunted institutions and its people than a terror group on the other side of the world. First, the facts: Alex Nowrasteh's much-cited Cato Institute analysis of terror attacks on American soil between 1975 and 2015 reveals that an American has a 1 in 3.6 million chance every year of...

    US President Donald Trump is still talking tough about allies but instead of Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in his sights, he is turning up the heat on Barack Obama for negotiating the Manus Island and Nauru refugee deal. Mr Trump said on Thursday he loves Australia and will honour the deal struck by his predecessor but only refugees who pass extreme vetting will be allowed into the US. "If a previous administration does something you have to respect that but you can also say 'Why are we doing this?'" Mr Trump, speaking to reporters before a meeting at the...

    This vote was on whether or not IRS Commissioner John Koskinen's impeachment should be blocked. Conservatives have made the case that Koskinen was involved in covering up and hampering Congress' investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative groups and conservative speech. Koskinen has been accused of repeatedly lying under oath and refusing to cooperate with congressional investigators. In June 2014, he told Congress that since the start of this investigation into former Director Lois Lerner, every email had been preserved. Yet, just three months earlier, IRS officials magnetically erased 422 backup tapes containing as many as 24,000 of Lois Lerner’s...
