  • Supreme Court refuses to hear 'Free the Nipple' appeal in New Hampshire case

    The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal by three women arrested for violating a New Hampshire city ordinance by exposing their breasts in public as part of the so-called "Free the Nipple" movement. The rejection leaves in place a 2019 ruling by New Hampshire's top court that upheld their convictions for violating a Laconia, N.H., measure that prohibits female toplessness in public. The women -- Heidi Lilley, Kia Sinclair and Ginger Pierro -- argued the ban violates the Constitution. The ordinance makes it illegal to uncover female breasts “with less than a fully opaque covering of...

    Pete Buttigieg improved by 10 points while Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped 12 points since September in the latest New Hampshire Democratic primary poll. The former South Bend, Indiana, mayor was the top choice of likely New Hampshire Democratic primary voters in a Monmouth University poll released Thursday, capturing 20% support, a dramatic increase since the 10% he received in a September Monmouth poll. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders were in a statistical tie with Buttigieg for first place, with the former vice president at 19% and Sanders at 18%. Biden dropped 6 points since...

    Washington (CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden dishonestly suggested on Saturday that he had opposed the war in Iraq "from the very moment" it began in 2003 -- even though Biden's campaign said in September that he "misspoke" when he made a similar claim. Biden was responding Saturday to a voter in Des Moines, Iowa, who told him, "I'm with you 90% of the way" but questioned his judgment in part because "you were for the second Gulf War, which was a mess." Biden said that "from the very moment" President George W. Bush launched his "shock and awe" military campaign,...

    During a rally yesterday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden spoke to a crowd in Derry, N.H., a town that many miners call home. He acknowledged the economic setbacks and job insecurity that coal miners face these days, and gave them some advice: learn to code. According to Dave Weigel of the Washington Post, Biden said, “Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well... Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake!”

    The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives committed political suicide two weeks ago and passed both articles of impeachment — obstruction of Congress and abuse of power — against President Donald Trump. After leading the most partisan impeachment inquiry in modern American history, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to send the articles of impeachment over to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell because she says Republicans won’t hold a “fair” trial. But maybe Pelosi is refusing to send the articles to the upper chamber because she knows several Senate Democrats will defect and vote against the sham charges levied against the president....

    Former Vice President Joe Biden was interrupted by a series of hecklers calling him "creepy" and a "pervert" during a campaign event in Milford, N.H., on Sunday night. Shortly after Biden started speaking, a man in the back of the room accused him of acting inappropriately, shouting, "don’t touch kids, you pervert." "This is not a Trump rally," a flustered Biden fired back. "This is a democracy." A woman then started chanting "quid pro Joe," before another attendee shouted at the 2020 hopeful, inquiring about Biden's business dealings in Ukraine.

    Mayor Pete Buttigieg is under fire again for his campaign's fundraising strategy. A top fundraiser to Buttigieg's campaign, Washington consultant H.K. Park, told a potential donor in an email that they should give money to the campaign in order to get on its "radar," appearing to sell access to the candidate. "If you want to get on the campaign's radar now before he is flooded with donations after winning Iowa and New Hampshire, you can use the link below for donations," Park wrote to an unnamed donor. The donor, who spoke with Axios and requested anonymity, characterized Park's offer as...

    At a time when momentum and political pundits seem to favor Barack Obama winning the Democratic presidential nomination, other indicators suggest the LGBT community's support is still largely behind Hillary Clinton, except in Texas. And Texas is one of three large primary states remaining that pundits say Clinton must win in order to stay even with Obama in the contest to secure enough delegates to win the nomination. The latest poll in Texas, conducted by CNN February 15-17 among 529 likely primary voters, found Clinton just two points ahead of Obama. A poll just a few days earlier, by the...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, has rented a home in New Hampshire just two months before the first-in-the-nation 2020 presidential primary state votes in February. "I grew up in Hawaii, where Christmas was 80 degrees and a day at the beach, and so being here in the winter, it's just -- the first snow of the year is always fun," she said, according to WMUR-TV in Manchester. Gabbard said she thinks New Hampshire, which votes after Iowa, will be her best chance to break through as a presidential candidate. On Tuesday, Gabbard tweeted a post of a yoga session at her...

    On Tuesday evening, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang celebrated the opening of his office in Manchester, New Hampshire, by squirting whipped cream into supporters’ mouths. The “uncomfortable” interaction was captured on video by ABC News reporter Christopher Donato. As shown in the video below, Mr. Yang squirts the cream into one kneeling young man’s mouth and then celebrates by shaking the bottle and joking, “That’s a full-service presidential candidate!” And he wasn’t done there, to the obvious displeasure of who appears to be the candidate’s campaign manager Zach Graumann. The businessman then squirts more cream into another kneeling male supporter’s...

    Kamala Harris was one of more than 20 Democrats hoping to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. She has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record and voted against a bill to protect newborns from infanticide. And she told voters she would force Americans to fund abortions up to birth. But the California senator decided to drop after today after lackluster results, a low polling and fundraising standing, and the inability to make it to prime time debates. Here’s more: Hours before Harris announced she was exiting the Democratic primary, her campaign canceled a New York City fundraiser that was expected to...

    Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro on Tuesday tweeted a meme invoking a character from the popular streaming series “The Mandalorian” to show his support for moving early primaries to states with more diverse populations that better reflect the Democratic base. The presidential candidate was responding to a tweet by Nate Silver of the polling website FiveThirtyEight, who tweeted, “If the Democratic Party wants a field that's representative of its members and its voters, it probably shouldn't have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire vote first every year.” In response, Castro tweeted an image of...

    The U.S. has continued to see a drop in the number of reported abortions, according to data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There were 623,471 abortions performed in areas across the country that reported data to federal officials in 2016, the latest available year for data, down from 636,902 the previous year, the CDC found. The latest abortion rate was 11.6 abortions per 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44 — down slightly from 11.8 in 2015 — while the overall abortion ratio ticked down to 186 abortions per 1,000 live births....

    If Joe Biden gets the Democratic nomination, it’s a good bet he will select a woman as his running mate. Biden has mentioned four women he might pick. They are Sally Yates, Stacey Abrams, Jeanne Shaheen, and Maggie Hassan. Yates has spent her entire career as a lawyer, not much of a recommendation for the second highest office in the land. Her biggest claims to fame are helping to set up Michael Flynn for prosecution and, as acting attorney general, refusing to enforce Trump administration immigration policy. These actions made her a hero to the Trump resistance. However, they do...
