    As WKRG reported, 23-year-old Atmore resident Sara Milliken won Miss Alabama on her third try over Memorial Day weekend. The morbidly obese Milliken claimed her goal was only to make the top 10 after failing even to place in her previous two attempts. Yet, she is now Miss Alabama. A few days later, despite an array of stunningly beautiful, charming, and intelligent women to choose from in the Miss Maryland USA pageant, the contest’s judges awarded the crown to a biological male who goes by the name of Bailey Anne Kennedy. How did this happen? You know the answer as...

    A top cancer charity has apologized for using the word 'cervix' instead of trans-friendly 'front hole.' The Canadian Cancer Society, which is run by philanthropist Andrea Seale, acknowledged the LGBTQ+ community on a webpage dedicated to cervical cancer, under the page's 'words matter' section. The non-profit said that 'many' non-binary people and transgender men have 'mixed feelings' or 'feel distanced' from the term cervix. 'We recognize that many trans men and non-binary people may have mixed feelings about or feel distanced from words like "cervix",' the statement said. 'You may prefer other words, such as “front hole.” We recognize the...
  • Chicago Mayor Extends Contract on Anti-Crime Program That He Campaigned Against As Racist

    I have written about the disastrous policies of Mayor Brandon Johnson for Chicago. As a native son, it is hard to watch this wonderful city undermined by Johnson and radical allies in the city council. Some initiatives like reparations and state-funded grocery stores will cost money but will not impose nearly the costs of Johnson’s dismal record on crime and taxes. However, this week saw a particularly confusing moment when, after calling the anti-crime program ShotSpotter “racist,” Johnson asked the company to extend its contract beyond the upcoming Democratic National Convention. So Johnson will put an end to this supposedly...

The moms-to-be and Will posed for a joint photo on the invitation, which said: “Welcome little Zeddy Wills 1-5.”

    High school students in a northern Virginia County on Wednesday protested a school policy that allows biological males in girl’s locker rooms and restrooms. The protest occurred in Loudoun County, which in recent years has become a focal point over school policies regarding transgender students and the transparency of those policies. The protest was over at 2021 policy that affirms the district’s commitment to “providing an equitable, safe and inclusive learning environment for all students regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, transgender status, gender identity or gender expression,” according to the Daily Caller news outlet.

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom will appoint EMILY’s List President Laphonza Butler to fill the seat of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein, elevating the head of a fundraising juggernaut that works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, according to a person familiar with the decision. Newsom is moving swiftly to name the next senator, two days after Feinstein’s death and just as a perilously split Congress narrowly averted a government shutdown. Senate Democrats are in need of every vote in the closely divided chamber. The announcement was expected to come Monday, and an adviser to the governor, Anthony York,...

    Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is indicating he’s against any motion to vacate Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s reportedly budding relationship, saying the public is “excited” by it. Asked during a Monday appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” if he watched the previous night’s football game between the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs — which “Karma” singer Swift attended as she cheered on Chiefs tight end Kelce — McCarthy replied that his inner circle was happy about the matchup and the coupling.

    Appointments for free vasectomies at a Planned Parenthood facility in Oklahoma filled up in less than 48 hours as dozens of men signed up to get 'the snip.' Up to 100 slots are thought to have been made available at the Oklahoma City clinic, with all slots filled in less than two days, and many more men joined a waitlist. Staff at the clinic say more men are signing up for procedure because of the state's political climate, with Governor Kevin Stitt vowing to make Oklahoma the most anti-abortion state in the country. Under current state laws, abortions are illegal...
  • Electric cars have a road trip problem, even for the secretary of energy

    When Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm set out on a four-day electric-vehicle road trip this summer, she knew charging might be a challenge. But she probably didn't expect anyone to call the cops. Granholm's trip through the southeast, from Charlotte, N.C., to Memphis, Tenn., was intended to draw attention to the billions of dollars the White House is pouring into green energy and clean cars. The administration's ambitious energy agenda, if successful, could significantly cut U.S. emissions and reshape Americans' lives in fundamental ways, including by putting many more people in electric vehicles. Granholm approaches a charging station to charge...

    NASCAR driver Noah Gragson has been suspended indefinitely by his team for liking a meme mocking George Floyd. Gragson later said after the blowback from the incident, "I am disappointed in myself for my lack of attention and actions on social media." The meme of Floyd is his face on the crab from Little Mermaid, with a caption saying, "Under da knee," connecting to the song, "Under the Sea."

    The reparations panel in California is now recommending up to $1.2 million per resident, but Democrat Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri clearly thinks that’s not nearly enough. She wants a cool $14 trillion in reparations payments. That’s more than half of the U.S. GDP.

Here are some examples.By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)February 19, 2023This article from the Telegraph lists a huge numbers of the changes that publisher Puffin has recently made to Roald Dahl’s books.Dahl himself has been dead for decades, so he had nothing to do with these changes. I’m certain that when he wrote his original text, he put a tremendous amount of thought into the words that he chose. I’m guessing that he would probably drop dead from a heart attack if...

    More U.S. adults disapprove than approve of the way President Joe Biden has handled the discovery of classified documents at his home and former office, a new poll shows, but that seems to have had little impact on his overall approval rating. The new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds 41% of Americans say they approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, about the same as the 43% who said that in December. In the new poll, 77% of Democrats approve of how Biden is handling his job, while 91% of Republicans...

"In 'Field of Dreams' a question is asked, 'Is this heaven?' - No, it's this midwestern state also known as 'the corn state,'" read host Mayim Bialik. DeVitto guessed Wisconsin and was shot down. Candace Parker, a WNBA player, offered Nebraska, which was also wrong. Comedian Patton Oswalt, a...

    Democratic consultant and political commentator James Carville said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that former President Donald Trump was the reason Democrats did not lose up to 57 seats in the House of Representatives. Co-host Joe Scarborough asked, “But James, you know, this is just the ebb and flow of politics. Bill Clinton wins big in ’92. Idiots like me get elected in ’94. Obama wins massively in ’08. The Tea Party wins in ’10. Could you explain to people who don’t know politics as well as you how historic last night was?” Carville said, “I’m going try. If you...

    The progressive left, embodied by the Democrat party, has decided to pursue an idiocracy, a government ruled by idiots. The idiots ruling their party leave no room for doubt that this was intentional. Let’s take a look at this gathering of goons and airheads. It is headed, no pun intended, by Joe Biden, the President of the United States, ostensibly the most powerful man in the world. It is apparent to all that Biden is incapable of even the most minor decision. Unless propped up by some unknown drug cocktail and aided by a multitude of teleprompters, Biden is entirely...

    So of course, when Vice President Kamala Harris was asked at an event this week to explain her favorite parts of the Inflation Reduction Act, she faltered. "S- I mean, so much, so m- I- one of the things that I'm very excited about is what we have been doing in terms of electric vehicles," Harris decided was her favorite part of the *Inflation* Reduction Act. "And I have a particular fondness, I must tell you, for electric school buses," she gushed. "I love electric school buses," she added to a smattering of applause from the audience. "I really do....
