    Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Kathy Barnette addressed several recent controversies over her record on Sunday, as she continues to surge in the polls ahead of Tuesday’s primary. Speaking with host Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday,” Barnette responded to criticisms about parts of her past that have come under fire in recent days, including questions about her military service record and insensitive tweets she had made in the past. She also blasted her primary opponents for raising controversy, claiming that they were “mad” because of her recent rise. “So I want to give you a chance to answer some of...

    MEYERSDALE, Pennsylvania — Unless either Dr. Mehmet Oz or David McCormick pulls out a miracle between today and Tuesday evening, just over 20% of the Republican primary electorate is going to nominate Kathy Barnette for U.S. Senate. This would mark the first time in modern Pennsylvania Republican primary history that such a complete unknown wins with no statewide infrastructure to support her candidacy, zero money, and little scrutiny. If she succeeds, she will have upended a race between two capable candidates who, up until a week ago, seemed to be locked in a two-man contest. This would also mark the...

    Kathy Barnette, who has taken Republican leaders by surprise with her late break run towards the GOP Senate nomination in Pennsylvania, said she would not support Mitch McConnell to lead her party if she makes it to Washington. “No, I think it’s time,” Barnette said in a recent interview with McClatchyDC. “These people have been in office longer than I’ve been alive. It’s time to move forward, thank you. Turn the page.” She added, “None of these people are going to release power. Power is addictive to them.” The 50-year-old Barnette, a Black conservative woman, poses a real threat to...

    Kathy Barnette, a Republican Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, has a social media history packed with anti-Muslim and anti-LGBTQ sentiments, as well as conspiracy theories about former President Obama. (snip) Driving the news: Former President Donald Trump warned Republicans Thursday that Barnette's history will preclude her from winning a general election in Pennsylvania. Trump has endorsed celebrity TV doctor Mehmet Oz in the race. (snip) In one of the tweets, Barnette said "pedophilia is a cornerstone of Islam." (snip) Worth noting: Barnette talked derogatorily about Muslims, Islam and Obama in speeches as well, CNN reports.

    INSIDE THE CHAMBER IT IS dark, and the flickers of torchlight play across the features of the men gathered. The meal over, they sit relaxed on long stone benches that face each other in the narrow nave. Their god has left them for the time being, but embers of the fire that brought him to share the feast still glow red on the altar nearby. Soon, the devout will gather and burn the scraps, including chicken bones and suckling pig carcasses picked clean of meat. Then they will disperse the ashes across the floor and pace deliberately back and forth...

    US Senate Endorsement: Kathy Barnette About a year ago I met with Kathy Barnette, a homeschooling Christian mom and veteran who had a big vision for the state of PA. Kathy was relatively unknown at the time, but I knew there was something special about her when I learned that Kathy filed a federal lawsuit related to mail-in ballot issues before the chaos of the 2020 election even happened. Kathy is also a Gab user and even wrote a guest post for our blog last year. Kathy’s testimony is incredibly powerful. She is the “byproduct of a rape” and celebrates...

    Surging Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Kathy Barnette has a history of anti-Muslim and anti-gay statements. In many tweets, Barnette also spread the false conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama is a Muslim. In one speech uploaded to YouTube in 2015, Barnette forcefully argued it was OK to discriminate against Muslims and compared rejecting Islam to "... rejecting Hitler's or Stalin's worldviews." In comments on her radio show, she said accepting homosexuality would lead to the accepting of incest and pedophilia. One post she wrote called a transgender person "deformed" and "demonic."

    If there's one thing I'm NOT afraid of, it's being 'cancelled'. If being cancelled means me living in integrity as a human being who thinks for themselves, CANCEL ME TODAY! I repeat; I am not afraid. What I'm truly afraid of is existing in a world that forces me to submit to an ideology without question, otherwise I'm to be shamed (or pressured to shame myself) and cast out of the community. A world that tells me that because I inhabit a black body; I will forever be oppressed and at the mercy of some omnipresent monster called 'whiteness'. That...

    Lori Vallow Daybell has been restored to competency and will face a jury trial on murder charges. District Judge Steven Boyce issued a written order Monday morning saying Daybell is fit to proceed and ordered that she be released from a Department of Health and Welfare facility where she has been undergoing treatment in northern Idaho since last summer... Daybell and her husband Chad Daybell are charged with multiple counts of conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 16-year-old Tylee Ryan — two of Lori’s kids — and Chad’s first...

    Sarah Lawrence College sex-cult leader Larry Ray was convicted Tuesday afternoon on all counts by a Manhattan jury — ending a yearslong prosecution launched after the fiend’s tyrannical abuse of a group of young people was exposed in a magazine article. Ray, 62, faces life in prison when he is sentenced by Manhattan federal Judge Lewis Liman later this year. Throughout the monthlong trial, prosecutors and victims painted Ray as a calculating predator who asserted control over a group of college students and others to enrich himself as the leader of a criminal organization he dubbed “The Ray Family.”

    Joe Rogan took aim at woke “activist” employees of large Silicon Valley tech firms, calling them “mentally ill” and “lunatics who are running the asylum to a certain extent.” Rogan made the comments on his Spotify podcast during an interview Wednesday with Antonio García Martínez, an ex-engineer at Apple and Facebook who parted ways with the iPhone maker after employees complained of “misogynistic” writings in his book. During the segment, Rogan asked Martínez what it was like to work for a large tech firm. “For someone from the outside, we look at it and say: ‘How are those #### places...

    A man commits a serious crime, then he gets released. He has "paid his debt to society". But wait a minute, he's only ready for the half-way house. He's unlikely to get a prestigious job in his new prison suit coat, or any job at all; he has civil impediments, he can't vote or hold certain offices. His crime was serious enough that he won't be presumed to have been completely rehabilitated until he performs a notable service to society, or at least spends many years on the straight and narrow, so that his crime can be truly overlooked or...

    There’s something idiosyncratically American about Joe Rogan. Maybe it’s his frat-boyish persona. His passions for hunting and extreme sports. Perhaps, most of all, Joe Rogan embodies some whimsical notion of the American Dream: a college dropout turned stand-up comedian, who worked his way up to become one of the world’s media titans....Last year, it was Spotify’s most-streamed podcast globally, in the US and the UK. Rogan is, anyone would have to admit, quite the big deal. And yet, he is a polarising figure. A staunch libertarian, Rogan has faced accusations of sexism and transphobia over remarks made on the podcast....

Brzezinski emphasized that the riot and attempts to overturn and steal the election are threats to our democracy “that we still face right now.”

    <p>Penn Jillette, the tall half of the hugely successful magician duo Penn & Teller, is one of the entertainment industry’s most outspoken atheists. For decades, Jillette has smugly condemned all manner of religious, psychic, and pseudoscientific irrationality. He also has a fan base on the right, because as a self-described libertarian, Jillette’s often mused about how “taxation is theft” and government compulsion is bad.</p>

As part of its zero-COVID policy, China has shut down multiple cities, stopped trains and quarantined all of its passengers after finding out that only a single one can been in contact with a COVID-19 patient, and restricted public transport...

    A TWISTED cult leader facing murder charges over a human sacrifice ritual has been killed in a police car crash. Self-styled prophet His Excellency Dr Kevin O Smith died alongside a detective, while two other officers were seriously hurt. The 39-year-old, whose sinister influence over British churchgoers was exposed by The Sun last week, was in a police convoy, being taken to be charged with murder, when his car overturned. Smith, under investigation after two people had their throats slit at his church, was cut out of the wreckage but pronounced dead in hospital. Last week, The Sun told how...
