    (Warning: The Following May Be Offensive) Having grown up with too much pornography in the picture, the notion of a lesbian was inevitably associated with extreme sex acts I found repulsive early in my life less so as the porn proliferated and I consumed it. In the religious subculture at the university I went to I remember a woman resembling Rachel Maddow was in the picture... I've learned over the decades that my lesbian friends and acquaintances have stories of being hurt including sexual harm done to them. Child abuse is also a part of their experience including sexual abuse....

    CáRDENAS, Cuba · Elián González says he wants to be a gymnast when he grows up. But his grandfather, Juan González Sr., knows Elián's future career choices are as variable as any normal preteen's and could change next month. "I want him to be a good man, to do good deeds, not do anything he will regret. Everything else is all right," he said, sitting in his home in the coastal town of Cárdenas under a large photograph of a very young Elián. At age 11, the boy whose bitter custody battle stands as a symbol of the Cold War...

    Gonzalez, who became the center of an international custody battle at 5 years old, was nominated Sunday to Cuba's National Assembly. Elian Gonzalez, the Cuban national whose precarious boyhood arrival in the U.S. in 1999 prompted a fierce international custody battle, is set to become a lawmaker. Gonzalez was nominated by his local municipal assembly on Sunday to serve in Cuba's National Assembly... Gonzlaez was en route to Florida with his mother when their boat capsized on Thanksgiving 1999 and she and other migrants drowned. The boy's fate thereafter became a flashpoint in U.S.-Cuba relations. His father, a waiter named...

    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace seemed to roll out the red carpet for White House chief of staff Ron Klain to discuss the latest jobs report. U.S. job growth shattered expectations in January, according to the jobs report released Friday from the Labor Department, adding 467,000 jobs, topping the 150,000 jobs gained forecast by Refinitiv economists who were pessimistic with their predictions due to the surge of the omicron variant. The unemployment rate ticked up to 4 percent.

    White House chief of staff Ron Klain has come under fire as Joe Biden's popularity wanes and Democrats struggle to pass the president's huge social safety net legislation. The litany of complaints against Klain, a longtime Democratic insider, goes as follows: He 'micromanages' the West Wing, he's too deferential to the liberal wing of the party, and he pays way too much attention to cable news and social media. Two reports on Klain, 60, this week - timed to the one-year anniversary of Biden's tenure in office - were filled with criticisms about his work. Most are from anonymous sources,...

    The biggest news President Biden made at his news conference wasn't about Ukraine. It was his brief answer to the question: 'Are you satisfied with your team here at the White House, sir?' Biden, to the consternation of observers in both parties, answered curtly: 'I am satisfied with the team.'

    The Supreme Court came in today with a decision blocking the Biden administration’s OSHA mandate on private businesses with 100 or more employees requiring that employees be vaccinated or tested weekly. The Court ruled they didn’t have the unilateral power to impose such a mandate. The Court did, however, allow a vaccine mandate for workers at federally funded health care facilities to take effect nationwide.Not only did the Court soundly reject Joe Biden in the effort to impose his will on private businesses, Justice Neil Gorsuch also reserved a few words for White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.When the...

    Following Chief of Staff Ron Klain's logic, 1929 wasn't all bad if you somehow overlook the stock market crash that led to a 10-year global depression. And 1968 wasn't all bad if you overlook the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy, the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, and riots in the streets all over America. Likewise, 2021 wasn't all bad if you overlook a plethora of problems. So who would write the latter article? None other than liberal shillmeister Al Hunt. And what is really funny is that Hunt's article, which was originally published in The Hill...

    He’s the Whine House Chief of Staff. President Biden’s top aide, Ron Klain, took to Twitter Saturday to decry press coverage of his boss. The chief of staff — known to insiders as the “Prime Minister” for his outside influence inside the West Wing — shared an opinion essay from the Washington Post arguing that Biden was receiving worse coverage than former President Trump. The piece from Post opinion columnist Dana Milbank warned that “My colleagues in the media are serving as accessories to the murder of democracy.” Milbank said he came to the conclusion after an analysis of more...

    White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain has taken a lot of flak for his assertion that "Americans should stop whining about supply chain problems and inflation" and his suggestion that "they could forage through dumpsters for edible food." This week a woman going by the name "Dumpster Diving Freegan" boasted she found $1,000 of free food in the trash bin behind a Whole Foods Market. In her post to Tik Tok she explained that "everything was still packaged and unopened and nothing was past its use by date – and it was all just one day's worth of waste."...

    The Biden administration is bracing for a number of lawsuits from governors and businesses around the country after President Joe Biden announced new Wuhan coronavirus vaccine mandates and weekly testing requirements, which impact 100 million Americans, on Thursday afternoon. After the mandate was announced, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klein took to Twitter in hopes of finding praise on the issue. While he was there, he retweeted MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle, who said using OSHA to implement the mandate was the "ultimate work-around." George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, who also happens to be a Democrat, noticed and...

    Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called White House chief of staff Ron Klain’s recent retweet appearing to praise the Biden administration for executing the "ultimate work-around" for President Biden’s recent vaccine mandate "breathtakingly daft." "The retweet was breathtakingly daft on the eve of litigation over the order. It is reminiscent of President Biden admitting that his own White House counsel and their preferred legal experts all said that the eviction moratorium extension was likely unconstitutional," Turley told Fox News on Friday. "Courts will now be asked to ignore the admission and uphold a self-admitted evasion of constitutional limits," Turley added. The...

    Ronald Klain, the White House chief of staff, faced criticism on social media Thursday after he retweeted a post that seemed to praise the Biden administration for pulling off the "ultimate work-around" for a national COVID-19 vaccine requirement. President Biden announced proposed rules that would force private-sector employers with more than 100 workers to either require them to be fully vaccinated or mandate that they undergo weekly tests. Biden referred to the mandate as a "new action plan." The rules would be enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Businesses that do not comply would face fines up...

    On August 8 the White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, turns 60 years old. It is, writes Mark Leibovich of the New York Times, a much-anticipated event on the D.C. social calendar. Klain, you see, has commemorated earlier "round-numbered birthdays" by throwing large, sumptuous "blowouts," including a fête at a Maryland farm in 2011 where hundreds of VIPs gathered to eat deep-fried Oreos and deliver "tributes to the honoree." Everyone who was anyone in Barack Obama's Washington was there. One's absence signified one's exclusion from the tribe. To know Ron Klain, then, is to have entered the power elite....

    A National Pulse review of White House Visitor Logs from November 2014 reveals a meeting in the White House Situation Room, chaired by then-Ebola Czar Ron Klain. The meeting appears to have been coordinated by Dr. Anthony Fauci, and included several high-level U.S. government agency heads. (snip) These details may go some way to helping uncover the truth behind the National Institute for Health (NIH) and its alleged funding of gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The information puts Klain and Obama at the head of the table for the decision to green-light what Fauci has been ferociously...

    President Joe Biden is looking into his "legal authority" to cancel student-loan debt up to $50,000, the White House chief of staff, Ron Klain, said in a Politico Playbook interview on Thursday. Klain told Ryan Lizza, Politico's chief Washington correspondent, that Biden had asked Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to create a memo on the president's legal authority to forgive student loans. He wants the memo to look into both forgiving student loans and canceling debt up to $50,000, Klain said.
