    JAILBREAK. After more years than I can remember, engaging in guerilla warfare as a member of the Partisan Resistance operating deep behind enemy lines, behind the Pink Curtain of Communist occupied California, I AM FINALLY FREE. I have slipped the wire, crossed the mine field, thumbed my nose at the machine gun turrets, and am finally fulfilling the long-delayed dream of moving to the Eastern United States by fleeing this wretched cesspool of Marxism. Good-bye, Gulag California! I am headed to the lush green hills of eastern Tennessee where life is sane, my vote counts, my income is not taxed,...

    Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the 2020 presidential primary race, a senior campaign aide told CNBC. He is flying to South Bend, Indiana to make the announcement, where he served as mayor for two terms. The Indiana Democrat waged an unlikely campaign that saw a little-known mayor overpower governors and U.S. senators in the race for the party nomination. Along the way, Buttigieg assembled a substantial war chest and a vast national operation. A two-term mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg was the first openly gay major presidential contender. He scored a narrow delegate edge over Sen. Bernie Sanders...

    Well… not exactly. Or at least not entirely. But the State Department has ordered all non-essential personnel to leave the country. It’s a move unusual enough to lead to questions and it almost certainly has to do with the deteriorating situation with Iran. (NPR) The State Department has ordered all “non-emergency” U.S. government employees to leave Iraq right away.The travel advisory specifically orders the departure of employees at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad and consulate in Erbil, noting that “normal visa services will be temporarily suspended at both posts.”It was not immediately clear what led to the order on...

    (U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, wants those aiming to pick up certain guns, ammo and accessories to wait seven business days.) A group of House Democrats is backing a measure to delay sales of semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, armor piercing ammo and large capacity magazines. Introduced by Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, H.R. 4268 would mandate that both licensed dealers and individuals wait seven days after buying targeted guns, ammunition and accessories before transferring the item. The Houston-area Congresswoman debuted the bill two days after the shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas that claimed the...

    Edwardian Promenade ^ | 12-05-2013 | Camille Hadley Jones
    No one in the Edwardian era made any bones about the fact that marriage was a woman’s sole career, and that she owed it to herself and to the family that had so far supported her, to get on with it. Where a girl was concerned, it was the duty of everyone–her mother, her mother’s friends, her chaperone and her bill-settling father–to help her achieve this ambition.Once a young girl turned eighteen, her childhood was essentially over. The moment she put up her hair and lengthened her skirts, she was a woman. A coddled and protected woman, but a woman...

  • George Stephanopoulos’s Wife: We’re Leaving America if Trump Wins

    11/06/2016 7:24:24 PM PST · by Rockitz · 127 replies ^ | 6 Nov 2016 | Ben Kew
    The wife of prominent ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos, Ali Wentworth, has claimed the couple will leave the country should Donald Trump become president of the United States. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wentworth said that “If Trump wins, we’ll start looking at real estate in Sydney, Australia. No crime, no guns.” The couple’s plans pour further scorn over Stephanopoulos’s supposed “objectivity” given his role as a prominent interviewer for ABC, having interviewed Donald Trump twice over the election cycle. Stephanopoulos and his wife’s connections to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party are well documented, with Stephanopoulos having previously worked...

    Apparently Rick Perry's performance at the first GOP debate last week wasn't enough to keep donors writing checks. Perry, who debated in the 5 p.m. Fox News debate after missing the primetime cutoff, has apparently stopped paying campaign staffers in key early states and at campaign headquarters. From the Washington Post:Former Texas governor Rick Perry's presidential campaign is no longer paying its staff because fundraising has dried up, while his cash-flush allied super PAC is preparing to expand its political operation to compensate for the campaign's shortcomings, campaign and super PAC officials and other Republicans familiar with the operation...
