    It's claimed the adult star, 39, believes she is in danger after revealing her alleged affair with US president Donald Trump. She also fears pulling out of Celebrity Big Brother this week has made her more of a target. A source close to the star told The Mirror: "She feels like everyone seems to be against her — Trump fanatics, his aides and even her own fans who will miss out on her appearing on the show." And they insisted Stormy wasn't interested in money. "It's not the money she is worried about — it's her safety," they said. The...

    I’m surprised.Historically, when have socialists ever been enemies of press freedom?Get excited for “Reliable Sources” this weekend on CNN, when stalwart media defender Brian Stelter will respond to this troubling precedent from a left-wing Democrat by ignoring it. [W]hen Ocasio-Cortez returned to the district for a Bronx community meeting with prominent healthcare activist Ady Barkan last Tuesday, her campaign manager, Vigie Ramos Rios, later told the Chronicle, she was “mobbed” by reporters, “even though we said no Q&A and no one-on-one [interviews].”According to Ramos Rios and campaign spokesman Corbin Trent, that unwanted attention led to a press ban both...

          WORD POWER!! During the invasion of Salerno, Allied forces employed propaganda on a scale they had never tried before. Artillery was used to fire shells, each containing thousands of leaflets, encouraging the Germans to surrender and promising them humane treatment if they did. The shells would open about 300 feet in the air and rain down the leaflets on German troops. One British Major made no secret of his anger at having to fire leaflets at the enemy instead of high explosives. In a short while, however, he changed his mind. For days his men had...

    Democratic congressional Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended banning press from a public town hall this week, saying the move was meant to protect residents of vulnerable communities. Ocasio-Cortez on Friday responded to a tweet from Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim, who wrote that the candidate “is in for a rough time on Capitol Hill -- where reporters roam freely at all hours of the day and night -- if this is her attitude toward the press.” The reporter also tweeted that the campaign should have made the event private, rather than making it public and stopping the press from attending.

    The federal government, coordinating with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, is to be commended for nabbing Omar Ameen a couple of days ago. He was wanted in Iraq for participating in ISIS attacks and murdering an Iraqi police officer, so we can chalk one up for the good guys. But ever since the details were made public, people have been increasingly fixated on one question. How did this guy manage to make it to California and be granted refugee status in the first place? (CBS Sacramento) As federal authorities in Sacramento prepare to extradite Omar Ameen to his home country...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday that he "fully admit[s]" Twitter employees share a largely left-leaning bias after facing accusations that conservatives are discriminated against on the social media platform. In an interview that aired Saturday on CNN, Dorsey said his company has a responsibility to be open about its political viewpoints, but to operate without bias when applying content policies to users. "We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is...is more left-leaning," Dorsey says. "But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to...

    August 14, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Disney is reportedly pushing the homosexual envelope yet again with an upcoming film in which it will feature for the first time an openly gay character. The move is being hailed as a "turning point" for Disney. British comedian Jack Whitehall will play a gay character in Jungle Cruise, which is based on the iconic theme park ride of the same name, the UK’s Sun reports. The film, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, is slated for an October 2019 release. Whitehall’s character is reportedly the brother of Blunt’s, and “a gay...

    For centuries the Swiss -- whether German, French, or Italian -- have been proudly insular in their mountain fastness, resolutely avoiding European conflicts. While hospitable to tourists, they're happy to see them spend their money and then get the hell out, and don't hand out citizenship lightly. Especially not when the prospective citizens bite the hand that's offered them: A Muslim couple have been refused Swiss citizenship after refusing to shake hands with people of the opposite sex, officials said. The couple were interviewed for citizenship several months ago in the city of Lausanne, and also “showed great difficulty in answering...

    Temporary reprieve for Sikhs, Muslims and ChristiansWhen a judge forced the University of Iowa to recognize a Christian student group on the same terms that it recognized a Muslim student group, the university balked. It derecognized more than three dozen religious student groups that didn’t explicitly allow students outside their faith to serve in leadership positions, including the Muslim club. Following a new lawsuit by a different Christian student group, InterVarsity, in response to its sudden derecognition, the taxpayer-funded institution has allegedly relented, at least temporarily. InterVarsity’s lawyers at the Becket firm said Monday that the university agreed to reinstate...

    Less than a week after making a stink about freedom of the press, President Trump and 'enemies of the people, CNN and apparently other news outlets have decided to get into the harassment business given that reporting news is just not good enough for them. Seriously, they tried to do this: In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case. Jurors haven not yet rendered a verdict on any of the 18 charges against...

    Four days after he disdainfully uttered the words “America was never that great” from a podium before an audience of feminists, Andrew Cuomo recanted the offensive declaration.  Despite 2 days of intense blowback, Cuomo was not able to force himself to utter the words, “Of course America is great.”  But he did so without providing any video, using a “conference call” to media. You can hear the recanting in this news report from New York City’s Channel 11, WPIX: The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle transcribes: During a conference call with reporters Friday, Cuomo dialed it back, saying he does...

    Business interests and police are doing their best to minimize attention to the slide into mob rule of the streets in Chicago’s nicest, most famous neighborhood.  But shoppers, tourists, and ordinary working Joes and Janes can no longer take for granted the freedom to walk around Chicago’s upscale shopping district along North Michigan Avenue near the famous Water Tower. Four times this year, mobs of “urban youths” have taken to “wilding” and attacking random pedestrians while looting stores. The latest instance happened on Tuesday. CBS Chicago reports: A brawl involving dozens of teenagers broke out near Chicago’s Water Tower...

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has...

    Fr Patrick McCafferty says pope should ‘stay away’ because of issue of clerical sex abuseA Belfast priest has said Pope Francis should cancel his visit to Ireland because of the issue of clerical sex abuse. Fr Patrick McCafferty told his west Belfast congregation that “the pope should not come to Ireland”. “I am going to say something now that will shock you,” said Fr McCafferty at the masses in the Corpus Christi Church where he is the parish priest. “With two weeks to go to the pope’s brief visit to Ireland, for the World Meeting of Families, I think the...

    The situation on the Korean Peninsula is flowing quite fast. On August 13, there were high-level talks between the two Koreas and a third inter-Korean summit, to be held in September in Pyongyang, was recently announced. President Moon Jae-in made the point in his message for the 73rd Korean National Liberation Day that Korea will take another step toward the declaration of the end of the Korean War and a peace treaty. Since this year's inter-Korean summit and the U.S.-North Korea summit are historically significant as the beginning of the Korean Peninsula's peace, Moon emphasized focusing on peace on the...

    New ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro told reporters that the network would not televise the national anthem before their Monday Night Football broadcast. There was some speculation that ESPN, who hasn't been shy about covering politics, might break with precedent and show the protests of players during the playing of the anthem. But, according to the story in USA Today, Pitano "bristled" at the suggestion that ESPN was a political network. Pitaro, who was hired March 5 following the abrupt departure of John Skipper, told reporters at a media event on ESPN's campus in Bristol, Conn., that the network has not previously...

    The new leader of Democrats in the Senate says Donald Trump is being "really dumb" for picking a fight with intelligence officials, suggesting they have ways to strike back, after the president-elect speculated Tuesday that his "so-called" briefing about Russian cyberattacks had been delayed in order to build a case. "Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you," said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday evening on MSNBC after host Rachel Maddow informed him that intelligence sources told NBC news that the briefing had not been...

    "They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees," "migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.  Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries. Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed?  What is it these luminaries see that we do not?  We – reputedly the most selfish, detestable creatures on...

    Newark, N.J., Aug 17, 2018 / 05:00 am (CNA).- Recent allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick include reports that he made sexual advances toward seminarians during his tenure as Bishop of Metuchen and Archbishop of Newark. CNA recently spoke to six priests of the Archdiocese of Newark, and one priest member of a religious order who was a seminarian in New York in the early 1970s, while McCarrick was a priest of the Archdiocese of New York. Citing archdiocesan policy and concerns about ecclesiastical repercussions for their candor, the priests agreed to speak to CNA only under the condition of...

    The Democratic Party has gone off the deep end in many more ways than just pushing socialism. One sign is the fanatical embrace of identity politics, which has become the hallmark of the Party of Obama (POO). Look at Vermont. There, the Democrats' primary race for governor was won by Christine Hallquist. What is unusual is that Hallquist calls himself a "transgender woman." To put it more accurately and without any politically correct gloss, Hallquist is a male pretending to be a woman. His pretending isn't all that convincing, as evidenced by this YouTube clip from Time magazine. CLICK ABOVE...
