    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.

  • FBI employee marries ISIS terrorist she was investigating

    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...
  • WHY LIBERALS HAVE JOINED DISCUSSIONS ON FREE REPUBLIC : THE BEAUTY OF A TRUMP VETO.

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

    Trump, not ISIS, is Americaís 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...

    Conservative Review ^ | 12/7/16 | Staff
    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...

    A skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump by two 10th-grade students at Marshall High School provoked anger and dismay from the parents of a student who watched it unfold last week. Harold and Melinda Bean said that in the skit, entitled ďThe Assassination of Donald Trump,Ē one of the boys made a gunfire sound effect with his cell phone as the other boy, portraying Trump, fell to the ground in mock death. ďI donít understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning,Ē he said. ďThough we understand she...
  • Hundreds in R.I. turn out for parade to defend wearing yoga pants (AP Photos)

    Hundreds of women, girls and other supporters proudly donned their yoga pants Sunday afternoon as they peacefully paraded around the Rhode Island neighborhood of a man who derided the attire as tacky and ridiculous. Alan Sorrentino says the response to the letter to the editor, printed in The Barrington Times Wednesday, has been ďviciousĒ and that heís received death threats. He implored marchers to stay away from his home and maintained the letter was meant to be humorous. But organizers say the so-called yoga pants parade wasnít a protest against Sorrentino specifically but part of a bigger movement against misogyny...

Instinctively, Shane pulled his daughter close and began searching for the cause of the commotion. Williams saw a woman running toward him; blood ran through her fingers where she clutched her abdomen. Behind her, a man dressed in a security guard uniform appeared to be wrestling with someone.

    Washington (CNN)It isn't exactly a squid pro quo, but scientists are naming a new fish after President Barack Obama partly as a way to say thanks for his decision last month to create a new protected area off the Hawaiian coast. National Geographic reported Friday that the maroon and gold creature, which was discovered 300 feet deep in the waters off Kure Atoll, is the only known fish to live within PapahńĀnaumokuńĀkea, an expanse of coral reefs and seamounts home to more than 7,000 species. One looking for the fish's official name, however, is likely to stay hooked -- a...

    Thrift stores 10 years ago would sometimes carry old color tv's, their color tuning wasn't automatic, they had 2 analog electronic controls, 1 for color balance, green or purple, the other for color volume, 1 extreme of the range was strict black & white, the other, color too "loud" so that you could never achieve the right green-purple balance if the color volume was too high. This color intensity control serves as an analogy for human sexuality before Playboy set the least common denominator. Children could once grow up "with the color volume turned down" in an atmosphere of...

    The fart heard 'round the world is an underdog story. It's the tale of a humble fart, unloosed on the world in a moment of innocence in the anonymity of a game between Swedish soccer clubs nobody had ever heard of. Its maker is Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, a left back for Jšrna SK's reserve team. They were playing Pershagen SK. He already had a yellow card. He also had "a bad stomach," per the Guardian. So, as he told Lšnstidningen SŲdertšlje, which we're going to guess is either a newspaper or a cheap, self-assembled coffee table, "I simply let go."...

    Blizzard officially cleared her of any wrongdoing a few days after the tournament ended, but that apparently wasn't sufficient to really make the point. To ensure there were no lingering doubts, she took to the stage and put on an hour-long showcase of her talent for all the world to see. I don't speak Korean so I have no idea what anyone's talking about, but the Reader's Digest version appears to be that she kicks ass until someone says no mas. Interestingly, despite the quality of her performance, she said she could have done even better but she's been under...
