    A game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies came to a brief halt on Friday, when a cat of unknown origin tried to live out its big league dreams. During the eighth inning, the cat made its first appearance — really more of a teaser — by running along a wall behind home plate. No one on the field seemed to notice.

    (CNN)A livestream of a virtual court proceeding in Texas took an "appawling" turn when a lawyer appeared as a cat on screen. Judge Roy B. Ferguson of the 394th Judicial District Court in Texas kindly addressed the cat in the virtual room, suggesting that attorney Rod Ponton adjust his Zoom settings. The mishap on Tuesday was posted by the court's YouTube channel. "Mr. Ponton, I believe you have a filter turned on in the video settings," the judge said. The small, white kitten looked sad with its concerned eyes darting back and forth. The kitten opened its mouth to speak....

    Thru a tale of misunderstandings, Jae Seon, the boy Sol Ah loves, thinks that Sol Ah has abandoned a kitten and, abandoned often as a child, he pulls away from her. But when a new girlfriend returns the rescued cat 10 years later, Jae Seon reluctantly allows Sol Ah to keep it until he can find it a new home, allergies preventing him from keeping it himself. And that’s when the cat discovers that, when he’s with Sol Ah, he can become human. As misunderstandings resolve, a love triangle complicates the situation.

    As a consistent critic of Lil Annie Menopause Coulter I have mocked her over the past three years. I never saw any reason to support this hideous bag of quisling bones. Nevertheless, every thread dealing with this lowlife invariably draws her supports out and there will be comments in her support. This always puzzles me considering what site we are on. These things said, I have to ask; given this latest spew of vicious mendacity from this foul pos a woman, what do her supporters have to say to this tweet from their hero? Replying to a tweet by President...

    The former controller of Continental BMW in Connecticut used the stolen funds for travel, plastic surgery, and a $50,000 Ford Mustang. Vanessa Vence-Small, the former controller of Continental BMW in Darien Connecticut, has been accused of embezzling $1.1 million from the successful, family-owned car dealership. Vence-Small is now facing 30 months in prison courtesy of the U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut after pleading guilty of wire fraud, Automotive News reports. In order to supplement her $150,000 yearly income, the former controller cooked the books to the tune of over a million bucks over the course of 2.5 years....

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign responded to former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Donna Brazile’s criticisms of the Clinton campaign, including the charge the campaign essentially rigged the 2016 primaries.“It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health,” reads a letter published online Saturday that was signed by former Clinton campaign officials, including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, Jennifer Palmieri and John Podesta.Brazile wrote an op-ed Thursday for Politico, claiming the DNC entered into an agreement that gave the Clinton campaign de facto control of...

Charles Pope • October 4, 2017 • Here at Holy Comforter-St. Cyprian Parish in Washington, D.C., we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi with the blessing of the animals. Although most folks bring dogs to be blessed, there are usually some who bring cats and a few other animals like ferrets. Once, someone even brought a snake!In the past I have shared a list of things we can learn from dogs. When I was growing up, we always had a dog, so although I did not compose the...

    The Washington Compost ^ | July 3, 2017 | Amber Phillips
    It's a common retort among those who have to work with President Trump but don't appreciate his tweeting: The president can do two things at once. Trump allies' argument goes like this: “The fact of the matter is that he can do more than one thing at a time,” Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said on NBC's “Meet the Press” on Sunday. That's technically true. The president can send a tweet while he's in a meeting. He could probably send several. It takes all of a couple seconds — a couple minutes, max — to formulate and post...

    WSJ ^ | Feb. 22, 2015 | Rudolph Giuliani
    There has been no shortage of news coverage—and criticism—regarding comments I made about President Obama at a political gathering last week in New York. My blunt language suggesting that the president doesn’t love America notwithstanding, I didn’t intend to question President Obama’s motives or the content of his heart. My intended focus really was the effect his words and his actions have on the morale of the country, and how that effect may damage his performance. Let me explain. (clip)........ Obviously, I cannot read President Obama’s mind or heart, and to the extent that my words suggested otherwise, it was...

    At first, it was easy to overlook. With all of his statements about caring for the poor, the disabled and immigrants, and all the fanfare surrounding his famous "Who am I to judge?" proclamation, Pope Francis seemed like a breath of fresh air for a church stuck resolutely in the past. The fact that he never commented on the long-standing marginalization of women in the Catholic Church, and asserted quite plainly that there would be no ordination of women, did nothing to dampen progressive enthusiasm for the new pope. There has been a hopeful sense that he would get around...
  • Obama is a complete failure [Communist Noobie Teases with Title Then Flops, Fails & Gets Zotted]

    Hi. My name is Chris. I'm posting to state how angry I am at Obama. He has failed to deliver. It proves my point that there's no difference between the democrats and republicans. Here are some of the reasons. Obama gave a temporary reprieve to just 5 million. All 12 million undocumented immigrants deserve full US citizenship. Obama has failed to stop Keystone and has done little for the environment and to stop global warming. He may as well be a republican. He's failed to ban guns. He's essentially for the entire NRA agenda. He's done nothing to stop the...

    Sheila Weller’s forthcoming tell-all ‘The News Sorority’ claims to offer up details on the scandalous and sometimes catty escapades of noteworthy newswomen, including how some apparently hold strong disdain for each other. Katie Couric cultivated an “American Girl identity” but she was also a bully with a “chip on her shoulder.” Diane Sawyer strived to be “America’s Aunt” but she rode her staff hard and used “staged humility” to disarm critics. Christiane Amanpour was fearless in the field and would remind her bosses, “Do you know that I’m the world’s best-known foreign correspondent?” And, when feeling threatened, these pioneering, primetime...

    It was the eagerly awaited meeting of the world’s two most important first ladies. But there was a clear winner when Michelle Obama met her counterpart Peng Liyuan for the first time in Beijing. As photographs and television footage began to emerge of Mrs Peng and Mrs Obama touring the Chinese capital, the country’s online forums were quick to claim victory in the “battle of the First Ladies”. “Our First Lady is so graceful and elegant, leaving Michelle far behind,” said one critic. “We have won this time,” remarked another. “Ours is more refined and eye-catching,” said a third.

    WASHINGTON, June 17 (by Karin Zeitvogel for RIA Novosti) – Mexicans in the thousands have pledged their support for a political candidate with a different outlook in next month’s mayoral election in Xalapa: a black and white cat called Morris who’s vowing to rid the university city of rats. “Tired of voting for rats? Vote for a cat. Only a cat can restore order in the face of all the rats who go after political posts,” reads the slogan on the Facebook page of “El Candigato,” which is a play on the words “candidate” and “cat” in Spanish. Morris is...

    It's been two months since Jessica Simpson gave birth to daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, and yet, according to fitness experts, she still looks to be at least 182 lbs. For a woman whose body has been a major part of her success, Jessica is traumatized by her surplus size. And friends say she has reached a breaking point in her struggle to lose the baby weight. While no new mom should be expected to be superslim so soon after giving birth, Jessica, 32, is actually getting paid — to the tune of a reported $4 million — to shed 70...
