    Yahoo / Daily Beast ^ | Aug 29 | Matt Lewis
    Is it time for Republicans to take Nikki Haley seriously? According to a new Emerson College Polling survey, “Haley saw the largest increase in support among Republican candidates, jumping 5 points from 2 percent to 7 percent” following last week’s debate. “Nikki Haley’s support increased from about 2 percent to 9 percent among voters over 50 [years of age],” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling, “while Trump’s support dropped within this age group from about 56 percent to 49 percent after the debate.” This jump is modest, inasmuch as it still leaves Haley in the single digits....

    Former President Donald Trump lost six percentage points of support in a national tracking poll after skipping last week’s first Republican primary debate, though the 77-year-old is still well clear of the rest of the GOP field.An even 50% of likely Republican primary voters backed Trump in the Emerson College survey out Monday, down from 56% in the poll the outlet released Aug. 19, four days before the showdown at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis gained two percentage points from the previous poll and placed second behind Trump with 12% support. Following the top two were entrepreneur Vivek...

    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the former president was “panicking inside” over the legal cases he is facing. Guest anchor Katie Phang asked, “Michael, Trump obviously he wears his emotions on his sleeve as he’s quick to demonize law enforcement and the DOJ, including Jack Smith. Privately, though, what is Donald Trump saying to the people in his immediate orbit about the prospect of actually doing jail time for his crimes?”

    Donald Trump has a commanding lead in Republican primary polls, but right-leaning independent voters worry if he’s the GOP presidential pick, he’ll lose again to Joe Biden, according to an analysis of swing voters conducted for a pro-Ron DeSantis PAC. “What has changed is the number of right leaning independents expressing grave concern that Trump cannot beat Biden. For them this is a simple pragmatic realization, if Trump wins the GOP nomination, Biden gets re-elected. Importantly, DeSantis is the most preferred alternative by far,” the online monitoring firm Impact Social said in its analysis provided for the pro-DeSantis Ready to...

    Former President Donald Trump blasted the Special Counsel leak on Tuesday. The Special Counsel investigation's prosecutors have presented evidence that former President Donald Trump has "knowingly and deliberately misled his own attorneys about his retention of classified materials after leaving office," according to a former top federal judge who leaked the contents of a sealed filing to ABC News on Tuesday. "U.S. Judge Beryl Howell, who on Friday stepped down as the D.C. district court's chief judge, wrote last week that prosecutors in special counsel Jack Smith's office had made a 'prima facie showing that the former president had committed...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign stated they would return political donations tied to the collapsed Silicon Valley Bank on Friday, according to USA Today. The DNC told the publication that the money would be returned following last week’s bank collapse. The announcement was made the same day the bank’s parent company, SVB Financial Group, filed for Chapter 11 protection in New York bankruptcy court.

    A majority of Americans in a new poll have a positive association with the term “woke,” understanding it to mean “to be informed, educated on, and aware of social injustices.” The USA Today-Ipsos poll released on Wednesday found that 56 percent agreed with the more positive definition, while 39 percent had a negative association with the word and understood it to mean “to be overly politically correct and police others’ words.” However, Americans in the poll are divided on whether they consider it an insult to be described as “woke,” with 40 percent calling it an insult and 32 percent...

    Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 was an emotional day for Michelle Obama for reasons you might expect — and a few reasons that might surprise you. The former first lady is revealing the roller-coaster of emotions she went through as she, Barack Obama, and daughters Malia and Sasha, bid goodbye to their home of eight years. In a clip from the March 7 premiere episode of Michelle Obama: The Light Podcast, via People, the 59-year-old author of The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times shared that she was “uncontrollably sobbing” while “saying goodbye to the staff and all...
  • Fluoride exposure associated with hypothyroidism in pregnancy, study finds

    02/14/2023 9:11:43 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 5 replies
    New research found that fluoride exposure via drinking water may increase the risk of hypothyroidism in pregnant women. In a smaller subset of participants, the researchers found lower IQ scores between boys whose mothers had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism compared to boys whose mothers had normal thyroid levels. Earlier research found an association between maternal fluoride exposure in pregnancy and lower IQ in boys, and this new research may explain these earlier findings, according to Ph.D. student Meaghan Hall. In the study, a half-milligram-per liter increase in drinking-water fluoride levels, which may not sound like much, but is roughly the...

    Americans are taking a been-there, done-that approach to the 2024 presidential election. Among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, 58% of voters prefer somebody other than President Biden as their standard-bearer in two years, and 49% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say the same about former President Donald Trump, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Sunday. While 44% of Republicans support Trump being their nominee, only 31% of Democrats back a Biden run for re-election.

    our cereal could be killing you. A new study out of England published Tuesday links ultra-processed foods with heightened risk for developing and dying from cancer. Researchers at London’s Imperial School of Public Health collected diet data for nearly 200,000 middle-aged adults and monitored their health over roughly 10 years, specifically their risk of developing 34 types of cancer. The medical researchers found that every 10 percentage point increase in the consumption of “ultra-processed” food — defined as items heavily processed during production such as ready-to-eat meals and a majority of breakfast cereals — was associated with a 2 percent...

Here’s why you may want to cut down on your consumption beyond dry January.Sorry to be a buzz-kill, but that nightly glass or two of wine is not improving your health. After decades of confusing and sometimes contradictory research (too much alcohol is bad for you but a little bit is good; some types of alcohol are better for you than others; just kidding, it’s all bad), the picture is becoming clearer: Even small amounts of alcohol can have health consequences.

    Sam Bankman-Fried said he did not steal money and blamed the collapse of his now-bankrupt FTX exchange on a broad crash in cryptocurrency markets, in a highly unusual blog post on Thursday (Jan 12), a month after his arrest on United States fraud charges. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan last month said Bankman-Fried stole billions of dollars from FTX customers to pay debts for his crypto-focused hedge fund, Alameda Research, purchase lavish real estate, and donate to US political campaigns. SNIP "I didn't steal funds, and I certainly didn't stash billions away," Bankman-Fried wrote in the blog published on Substack, in...

    Findings from the team at the Rocky Mountain Institute in Colorado suggest that the roughly 35 per cent of American homes that use gas stoves should mitigate the spread of toxins like nitrogen dioxide and benzene by switching to an electric induction stove. Their research is the latest installment in a growing body that shows the danger of having a gas stove in the home, which can emit carcinogenic toxins that put people at risk of severe health effects.

    A staffer for Herschel Walker’s Senate campaign has alleged to The Daily Beast that longtime Republican activist Matt Schlapp made “sustained and unwanted and unsolicited” sexual contact with him while the staffer was driving Schlapp back from an Atlanta bar this October. The staffer said the incident occurred the night of Oct. 19, when Schlapp, chair of the American Conservative Union and lead organizer for the influential Conservative Political Action Conference, “groped” and “fondled” his crotch in his car against his will after buying him drinks at two different bars. The staffer described Schlapp, who had traveled to Georgia for...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/20/22 | William Kevin Stoos
    Some say that Dickens is the father of the modern Christmas celebration—a tradition that was disappearing at the time he wrote the story. His portrayal of a Victorian snow-filled holiday celebrated with wassail, caroling, and families gathered around the table to eat the Christmas goose, perpetuated the secular Christmas celebration, which many Americans now enjoy. Yet, it was far more than a holiday tale. A Christmas Carol was a powerful, almost subliminal, message of Christian values and morality—though Jesus, God and the New Testament are barely alluded to in the story. How many readers knew that Dickens was an unconventional...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Monday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that former President Donald Trump was already “constitutionally disqualified from holding office, having participated in insurrection.” Raskin said, “The historians and political scientists we have spoken to have been very clear about this. The surest sign of a successful coup coming is a recently failed coup where the coup plotters and insurrectionists got to diagram the weaknesses in the existing structure. And so if there’s impunity, if they think they can operate with impunity and under the cover of darkness, then they are undoubtedly going to come back again. So...

    Former President Donald Trump revealed Thursday that the “MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT” that he teased earlier in the week — which some of his supporters thought could be anything ranging from his announcing a bid for House Speaker to announcing who he would want to be his VP pick should he win the GOP primary — was a series of digital trading cards. “I’m doing my first official Donald J. Trump NFT collection right here and right now; they’re called Trump Digital Trading Cards,” Trump said in a promotional video. “Here’s one of the best parts: Each card comes with an automatic...
  • POLL: DeSantis remains GOP's top 2024 pick over Trump, most Dem voters don't think Biden should run again

    Most voters would rather see Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., as the GOP nominee in 2024 over former President Donald Trump, according to a new poll that also found the majority of Democrats do not think President Biden should seek re-election next cycle. A Marquette Law School poll revealed that in a hypothetical 2024 matchup between DeSantis and Biden, the two candidates were tied among registered voters, both receiving 42% support. About 11% said they would choose a different candidate. The results reflect a major increase in support for DeSantis compared to a January Marquette poll where he received only 34%...
