We all have often come across phrases in our daily life at least once or on repeated terms such as -- You have always been crazy; I don’t know what you want me to say; It’s your fault; Everyone agrees with me; That’s not how it happened; Your memory seems to be slipping; I did that because I was trying to help you.

  • American Girl is accused of 'stripping away all innocence' in magazine that teaches kids how to change gender by taking puberty blockers and going behind parents' backs to get 'help'

    The popular American Girl doll brand is facing backlash for pushing kids into changing their gender in a recent book marketed to young girls. The recently released book, titled A Smart Girl's Guide: Body Image, contains lines that give advice to prepubescents on how to change their gender - seemingly without their guardians' blessing. Parents have since based the book's contents as 'deceptive and dangerous,' citing the messages it looks to sending to its impressionable demographic. The 96-page handbook - billed as a 'guide' - is marketed to girls aged 3 to 12, and instructs them on how to make...
  • ‘Mother of Internet’ Radia Perlman argues for centralized infrastructure

    Internet pioneer Radia Perlman has argued in favor of centralized infrastructure, while speaking at the International Symposium on Blockchain Advancements in Singapore on Friday. Perlman said that conventional wisdom poses centralised systems as “bad” and decentralized as “good,” however decentralized entities are inherently problematic in multiple ways. “Blockchain as a buzzword started as the technology behind Bitcoin. People made money on Bitcoin and the more hyped it was, the more start-ups leveraged the hype to claim their product has something to do with Blockchain” explained Perlman. “If you hear so much hype, eventually you assume well, it must be incredibly...

    President Biden's administration is scrambling to track the nearly $20 billion in military aid it has sent to Ukraine as Republicans warn of impending audits when they take control of the House in January. Likely future House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has said his party will not be giving Ukraine a "blank check" to fend off Russia's invasion. A potential audit would determine how much, if any, of the U.S. aid is ending up in the wrong hands. The Biden administration's previous tracking efforts have inspected only a fraction of the aid provided to the country. While some staunch Ukraine allies...

The bizarre sight is no laughing matter according to Oddo. Her rescue has taken in another bird with dyed feathers that was also captured in the area of Pembroke Pines. “These are animals that are raised in...

No matter what anyone says the left do not want to investigate any claim, they only want to blame Republicans. Nonetheless, Jordan appeared on Fox News with Tucker Carlson recently and laid out a chilling story: “Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that a whistleblower in the FBI had provided information...
