    Canadian singer Shania Twain is still being attacked by the left, despite her apology for saying she’d have voted for Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” Twain had previously declared. “Do you want straight or polite?” Twain also described President Trump as “transparent,” adding, “and politics has a reputation of not being that, right?” However, the singer has since apologized for her comment, claiming it wasn’t “representative of my values.” “My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my...

    A Baptist pastor in Dallas is facing some harsh realities more than a year after leading his congregation to affirm homosexuality. In November 2016, Wilshire Baptist Church voted to extend membership to those involved in the homosexual lifestyle. The church's slogan is now "Open to all, closed to none." The action prompted the Baptist General Convention of Texas to sever ties with the church. A year later, Chelsen Vicari decided to contact senior pastor George Mason to see how the church has been affected by the change.

    BONN, Germany (Reuters) – That the personal data of tens of millions of Facebook users fell into the wrong hands is troubling politicians, but Germany’s top competition regulator is questioning the sheer volume of information that the social network harvests. Andreas Mundt, president of the Federal Cartel Office, is awaiting Facebook’s response to his findings, published in December, that it abuses its market dominance by gathering data on people without their proper consent. That includes tracking visitors to websites with an embedded Facebook ‘like’ or share button – and pages where it observes people even though there is no obvious...

    So much for the rumored intersectionality and tolerance of the left. It turns out they can be racist and sexist when someone disagrees with them. Actor and noted liberal Tom Arnold went on the offensive on Sunday after rapper Kanye West tweeted his support for conservative commentator Candace Owens from Turning Point USA. He stated that “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” causing controversy among the liberal Hollywood and Black Lives Matter circles. Perez Hilton, Shaun White, and Tom Arnold all went after both West and Owens, but it was Arnold who attacked Owens the most. After a series...

    Police have arrested a suspect after a white van mounted a curb and struck numerous pedestrians in Toronto. At least one person has died and at least several others were injured, according to a local hospital representative. Sunnybrook Hospital issued a statement saying that its trauma centre had received seven patients after “an incident involving a van striking a number of pedestrians.” A representative of the hospital later told CP24 that they were aware of eight patients, including one who died and several who were in critical condition.

    The news reports have all focused on the FBI’s second-in-command leaking information to the Wall Street Journal – or authorizing subordinates to do so -- and then lying to investigators about it. This is big news, provided that account is borne out by a subsequent criminal indictment and successful prosecution.

He said flatly that during the last months of the Obama administration, high-ranking Justice Department officials tried to kill the FBI’s on-going investigation into the Clinton Foundation. .....

    Workers at one of Russia's biggest aluminium smelters say their Siberian town is doomed unless Moscow mitigates U.S. sanctions against aluminium giant Rusal, a predicament mirrored across the company's sprawling operations. Trapped by mortgages for apartments built on barren steppe under communism, residents of Sayanogorsk, one of a string of towns dominated by Rusal, have few options if a loss of customers for its aluminium leads the firm to cut jobs. "The entire life of this city depends on Rusal," said Evgeny Ivanov, until recently a foreman at the plant in Sayanogorsk, where pockmarked asphalt recalls the harsh winters endured...

    My recent Blind Item in Ask Ausiello is a blind no more. As confirmed by our sister site Deadline, a big question mark is now hanging over Lethal Weapon‘s seemingly slam-dunk Season 3 renewal due to the behavior of co-lead Clayne Crawford. Per Deadline, Crawford has “been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment.” The issue reportedly intensified in recent months to the point where several actors and crew members on the Fox drama do not want to be on set with Crawford. A source tells TVLine that studio Warner Bros. is considering recasting...

    Time Magazine reports that the Trumps will host French President Emmanuel Macron and French First Lady Brigette Macron on Tuesday at the first White House State dinner of the Trump administration. Buried in the details of the decor, wine selection and menu is the fact that Melania Trump is planning a first course that “celebrates the wondrous first harvest of spring, using greens from the White House kitchen garden.” The main course will include New Orleans Jambalaya with Carolina rice “scented with the trinity of Cajun cooking—celery, peppers, and onions, and spiced with herbs from the South Lawn.” Let us...

    Video at link (0:46). This is what passes for a professor these days. This is academia in the U.S., 2018. If Fresno State lets Jarrar go for her vile statements about Barbara Bush, maybe Stanford will be able to snatch her up, but there is certain to be a bidding war. Meanwhile, I don’t know if Jarrar meant me, or neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, or someone else when she calls for acts of terrorism against “Spencer” in this video. Maybe she has Richard and me completely mixed up, as do so many. Academics today aren’t much interested in making distinctions...

  • Out of Africa: 90,000-Year-Old Human Finger Points to Much Earlier Migration

    04/23/2018 1:03:57 PM PDT · by SunkenCiv · 47 replies
    Researchers have directly dated the earliest-ever fossil from an anatomically modern human found outside of Africa and the Levant. This 90,000-year-old fossilized finger rewrites traditional theories of early migration, beating expectations by some 25,000 years. Homo sapiens, the team thinks, were exploring what was once the wet grassland of Saudi Arabia far earlier than previously thought. Humans may not have left Africa in one big wave, but in a series of trickles... Extensive testing at institutions around the world revealed not only was this the finger bone of a modern human, but it was also the oldest directly dated Homo...

    Even in extremely liberal Madison, Wisconsin, there is a core of Second Amendment supporters. Friends of the NRA is not a political group. The events are meant to raise money for things such as shooting ranges and teaching firearms safety. They are not allowed to endorse political candidates. It is clear that Friends of the NRA are Second Amendment supporters.  The Friends of the NRA in Madison, Wisconsin, held their 26th annual fundraising event on 11 April 2018. The event has been non-controversial for 25 years. This year the event drew some crybullies who want to tell other people...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will unveil a plan for the federal government to guarantee a job paying $15 an hour and health-care benefits to every American worker “who wants or needs one,” embracing the kind of large-scale government works project that Democrats have shied away from in recent decades. Sanders's jobs guarantee would fund hundreds of projects throughout the United States aimed at addressing priorities such as infrastructure, caregiving, the environment, education and other goals. Under the job guarantee, every American would be entitled to a job under one of these projects or receive job training to be able to...

    Laying out this year’s edition on Monday, Professor Giuseppe Ferrari, who heads the “Group for Socio-Religious Research and Information” which sponsors the annual gathering, went over the history of the course and also what’s new in the 2018 edition. One novelty, Ferrari said, is that for the first time, the course will feature a section on witchcraft in Africa. “We will deal with the theme of the kidnapping and murder of children for ritual sacrifice, linked to witchcraft, in order to obtain favors for clients,” he said, calling it a “cruel and inhuman practice.”
