  • Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker bashes Pride Month, tells women to stay in the kitchen

    There are some times when maybe, just maybe, one should actually stick to sports. After delivering some incendiary comments about Covid and President Biden, Butker got around to what he perceives as a woman’s ultimate and rightful place: the kitchen.
  • Problem receiving Yahoo email from conservative sources

    05/01/2024 11:38:19 AM PDT · by jasonandtheb · 21 replies
    The sources include Epoch Times and Jihad Watch. I can find these emails via a Yahoo email search, and the results indicate they are in the inbox, but I can't see them there. I've checked my filters, but there is nothing that might cause this problem. I added filters to whitelist the sources, diverting the email in the Inbox, but that didn't work. I've been consulting with Epoch Times about this. Other users of theirs have had similar issues with several different email providers. Any ideas?
  • JAIL PELOSI: Feds and Media Now Claim There Was a Mysterious Website Discovered on Dec. 20 with Over 500 Pages of Threats and Discussions of Killing Lawmakers and Terrorism on Jan. 6 – And We Are JUST NOW HEARING THIS??

    On January 6, 2021, Capitol Police killed four Trump supporters at the US Capitol. Dozens of federal operatives were working inside the enormous Trump crowd that day and promoting violence. The media hid this for years from the American public. Now tonight a new report was released of a mysterious website that had over 500 pages of threats and discussions of murder and violence at the US Capitol on January 6. For some reason that report was just released today by Yahoo News. Why now? And what website are they talking about? And if this is true, Nancy Pelosi should...
  • Mar-a-Lago Judge’s Stark Ruling: Jury Sees Secret Files or Trump Wins

    The MAGA-friendly federal judge who keeps siding with Donald Trump in his Mar-a-Lago classified records case has forced prosecutors to make a stark choice: allow jurors to see a huge trove of national secrets or let him go. U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon’s ultimatum Monday night came as a surprise twist in what could have been a simple order; one merely asking federal prosecutors and Trump’s lawyers for proposed jury instructions at the upcoming trial. But as she has done repeatedly, Cannon used this otherwise innocuous legal step as yet another way to swing the case wildly in favor...

    Actor Selma Blair is facing backlash online after an Islamophobic Instagram comment from last week went viral. The comment was made on an Instagram video posted by Abraham Hamra one week ago, in which he calls out U.S. Representatives Rashida Tlaib, D-Mi., and Cori Bush, D-Mo., for being the only two members of Congress to vote against a measure that would prevent anyone who partook in the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel from immigrating to the U.S. Hamra, whose Instagram bio refers to him as a speaker and Syrian Jewish refugee, calls Tlaib a "liar," "moron" and a "hateful...
  • Sen. Tim Scott Said 4 Words To Trump That Made People Cringe To Their Cores

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) left critics cringing on Tuesday with a stunning display of sycophancy to former President Donald Trump. The senator, who dropped out of the GOP presidential race in November, was one of two former candidates onstage with Trump in Nashua to celebrate his victory over Nikki Haley in the New Hampshire primary. In 2012, when she was governor of South Carolina, Haley appointed Scott, then a member of the House of Representatives, to his Senate seat to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint. “Did you ever think that she actually appointed you, Tim?” Trump said of Haley during...

    Over the weekend, as I pondered a volume of forgotten lore — it was Emily Wilson's gripping translation of Homer's "Odyssey," actually — my email inbox started filling up with the curious news that a long-discredited and retracted paper claiming that the COVID vaccines had killed nearly 300,000 Americans had been "reinstated." It did not take long to determine that the truth was, no, not really. But the sudden appearance of this claim and its rapid spread across the anti-vaccine ecosystem speak volumes about how "bad papers written by antivax ideologues designed to promote a narrative that vaccines are dangerous...

    HONG KONG — Chinese President Xi Jinping met with veteran U.S. diplomat Henry Kissinger in Beijing on Thursday, calling him an “old friend,” Chinese state media reported. Xi said the visit by Kissinger, who has been to China more than 100 times and recently turned 100, had special significance because of the two “hundreds.” Kissinger, who was Richard Nixon’s national security adviser, made a secret trip to China to 1971 that laid the groundwork for a historic trip by the president the following year and the formalization of relations between the United States and China in 1979. “It not only...
  • US podcast misinformation goes largely unchecked

    Misinformation about everything from election fraud to Covid-19 vaccines is reaching millions of Americans through a popular but opaque medium: podcasts. Many podcasts -- on-demand audio programs which users can listen to on smartphones -- bluntly promote false and unproven claims. The Brookings Institution found "War Room" from former Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon has aired the most false statements, amassing more than 135 million downloads while promoting allegations of vote rigging in the 2020 US election.

    Graeme Massie Thu, June 8, 2023 at 2:11 PM MDT·2 min read A Donald Trump-supporting New York billionaire says that he wants to buy embattled CNN from Warner Bros. Discovery. Grocery mogul John Catsimatidis told The New York Post that he would “go run the place tomorrow morning and all I’d want is $1 per year.” The news network has been hit by falling ratings and earlier this week under-fire CEO Chris Licht, who attempted to drag CNN to the right, was fired after a searing profile in The Atlantic. Greek-born Mr Catsimatidis, 74, refused to tell the newspaper how...
  • Top US Surveillance Lawyer Argues That New Technology Makes The 4th Amendment Outdated

    Reuters has an interesting piece looking at how many experts are concerned that mass surveillance efforts by the federal government are making a mockery of the 4th Amendment. The focus of the article is on the scan of all Yahoo email that was revealed back in October, but it certainly touches on other programs as well. The concern is easily summarized by Orin Kerr: "A lot of it is unrecognizable from a Fourth Amendment perspective," said Orin Kerr, a former federal prosecutor and Georgetown University Law School expert on surveillance. "It's not where the traditional Fourth Amendment law is." But,...
  • Trump Extremists Demand Civil War, Mass Murder After New Indictment

    Extreme supporters of Donald Trump have met news of his federal indictment with visions of violence and retribution. At The Donald, a forum for ultra-MAGA Trump supporters, users demanded public executions and other forms of lynching to avenge the federal prosecution of Trump, for the alleged mishandling of state secrets at Mar a Lago after he was no longer president. The calls for violence appeared in comment threads, responding to posts on the front page of the forum Thursday night, after news broke of Trump’s latest legal troubles. The most extreme comments were written in response to a fanciful post...

    Yahoo plans to lay off more than 20% of its total workforce as part of a major restructuring of its ad tech unit, executives told Axios. The cuts will impact more than 50% of Yahoo's ad tech employees — more than 1,600 people. Why it matters: The changes will end Yahoo’s years-long effort to compete directly with Google and Meta for digital advertising dominance. Driving the news: In an interview, Yahoo CEO Jim Lanzone stressed that the layoffs are not attributable to financial challenges, but rather, strategic changes to the company's Yahoo for Business advertising unit, which is not profitable....

    Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign just got a bit more interesting as there are reports one congressperson is ready to throw their name in the hat and become his running mate. It’s a curious development as the former president has been struggling to garner support from the Republican Party as they look for new leadership to run against the likely Democratic candidate, President Joe Biden. According to NBC News sources, Marjorie Taylor Greene is interested in the job and former Donald Trump aide, Steve Bannon, thinks she is already working behind the scenes to make it happen. “This is no...

    (Reuters) - Florida's Chief Financial Officer said on Thursday his department would pull $2 billion worth of its assets managed by BlackRock Inc, the biggest such divestment by a state opposed to the asset manager's environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) policies. While the move will hardly dent BlackRock's $8 trillion in assets, it underscores how the backlash among many Republican politicians, such as those in Florida, against ESG investing, which they see as promoting a "woke agenda" is gathering steam. Republicans are set to assume control of the House of Representatives in January. This will allow them to hold...
  • Op-Ed: Free food for all? Absolutely. In this age of abundance, it should be a human right ["If some processing plants, distribution warehouses and retailers were owned by government"]

    One way to do that would be to restructure some food companies, distribution warehouses and retailers as a public utility, like how the energy grid, sewers and water delivery are managed. If some processing plants, distribution warehouses and retailers were owned by government, they could use subsidies to buy grains, legumes like beans and meat directly from farmers, and the resulting goods could be made available free to everyone. Programs could alternatively take the form of universal school meals and open-to-all cafeterias that serve meals throughout the day.
