    AOC: "I looked at this recipe and I needed basil, and I was going home and I get off the subway station and I go into the grocery store and there’s no basil, no fresh basil in the grocery store. So then I walked to another grocery store two blocks down, no fresh basil. I was very stubborn about making this recipe that evening, and I must’ve been — I must’ve walked around for an hour in our neighborhoods, visiting four or five grocery stores, and there was no basil, no fresh basil in any of them. And it just...

    Are you worried that—given his support for higher taxes and the economy-nationalizing Green New Deal—Joe Biden could jeopardize your retirement and ability to provide for your family? Do you therefore support President Trump? Professor Eddie Glaude Jr. wants you to know that your attitude is nothing less than "selfishness." On today's Morning Joe, Princeton prof and Morning Joe regular Glaude said that the Trump campaign has a double-edged strategy: appealing to non-college educated whites with "grievance and fear," and to suburbanites "because Joe Biden and the radical left will jeopardize their economic well-being, their 401(k)s and the like" who would...

    The momentum that had been building around Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) as a possible vice presidential pick for Joe Biden has come to an abrupt halt amid controversy over Cuba. The suggestion that Bass harbored some degree of past sympathy for the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro has caused consternation among Democrats in Florida. They worry that selecting Bass could seriously endanger Biden’s chances in the largest of the battleground states. The stakes could hardly be higher, they warn. Picking Bass “violates the central tenet of a vice presidential selection, which is ‘Do no harm,’” according to Florida-based pollster and...

    Left-wing actor and Hollywood director Rob Reiner suggested that all Trump supporters are racist, claiming that “we will find out how many racists live in America” on Election Day. “Trump is a stone cold racist who is running his campaign as a proud White Supremacist,” tweeted The Jerk actor. “On Nov.3 we will find out how many racists live in America.” Despite the fact that President Trump has lifted a ban on federal funding of faith-based historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and was honored with the “Bipartisan Justice Award” for his work on criminal justice reform, Reiner is no...

    John Roberts is a politician — a politician who consistently makes laws, inconsistently applies the Constitution, and can't be voted out of office. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Unelected leftist politicians in robes with lifetime tenure. Turns out, the Supreme Court is a joke, and the punchline is Chief Justice John Roberts.Two high court decisions this week brought that reality into focus, when the George W. Bush-appointed chief sided with leftist justices to say sexual orientation is “sex,” and that the current commander in chief can’t undo unlawful executive action from a past president because of his reasons.Roberts has quite the...

    Following George Floyd's death, the nation may not be ready for reparations on racism issues but the "church can lead the way in biblical restitution," according to the president and CEO of Christianity Today. Timothy Dalrymple said "repentance alone is not enough" for white evangelicals to atone for the nation's "original sin" of racism in an op-ed for the magazine. "The virus of racism infected our church, our Constitution and laws, our attitudes and ideologies. We have never fully defeated it," Dalrymple wrote.

    New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy indicated Monday that he has no plans to enforce social distancing rules on large groups gathering for anti-racism protests even as non-essential businesses are allowed to reopen only in phases and other large groups are prohibited. “I can’t imagine what it would look like if we said to people, ‘Actually, you have to stay in. You have to ignore systemic racism — I’m sorry, just ignore it. Stay in,’” the governor said during his daily coronavirus briefing. I can’t imagine what that looks like as it relates to public safety
