    Can we just get along? This question is being asked more and more, what with the bitter polarization of the nation. The answer, right now, would appear to be a resounding no. It’s not because we can’t. We don’t want to. I had that thought the other day when I was listening to the Seattle City Council. Many council meetings of late involve left-wingers shouting at other left-wingers for not being left-wing enough. But on this day, a new purity test of left-wingedness was revealed. The council was debating the juvenile-justice issue. Not everyone agrees whether a new jail should...

Cars.com, Casper, Crowne Plaza, Leesa Sleep, Peloton, Ring.com and USAA insurance are the only companies that have pulled their ads from his show, but Hannity supporters are letting those companies know that there will be consequences: View...

    USAA, an insurance, bank and financial services company that caters to active duty military, veterans and their families, is getting slammed by members after announcing on Twitter Wednesday night the company was withdrawing advertising on the Sean Hannity show in response to pressure from liberal activists trying to silence Hannity by cutting off his advertising base. It was not stated by USAA if they advertised on Hannity’s Fox News Channel show or his nationally syndicated radio show.Hannity is a strong supporter of the military and veterans. He has a strong fan base among the military community.The effort to drive Hannity...

    Open letter signed by likes of Ken Loach, Roger Waters and Young Fathers urges band to join cultural boycottHigh-profile figures from the arts world, including Ken Loach to Roger Waters, have called on Radiohead to cancel an upcoming gig in Israel as part of a cultural boycott. An open letter also signed by the South African archbishop Desmond Tutu and the actors Maxine Peake, Ricky Tomlinson, Miriam Margolyes and Juliet Stephenson asks the band to reconsider performing in a country “where a system of apartheid has been imposed on the Palestinian people”. Also among the 47 signatories are the Wolf...

    It's hard to separate Donald Trump's businesses from his politics. As a result, some are calling for a boycott of any company that sell Trump products. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October following the publication of a leaked tape that showed Trump making lewd comments about women. Coulter used the hashtag to encourage people who were offended by Trump's language and actions to boycott companies doing business with his family.

    Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, the world’s largest, has removed US arms giant Raytheon from its blacklist after it stopped manufacturing cluster weapons, Norway’s central bank announced on Wednesday. The fund, worth around 7.42 trillion kroner (€830 billion, $892 billion) and which is subject to strict ethical guidelines, excluded Raytheon from its portfolio in 2005 because of its role in the production of these weapons. International campaigners have long sought a ban on cluster weapons because of the serious danger they pose to civilian populations. …

    The marching band of Alabama's oldest private, historically black liberal arts college has accepted an invitation to perform at President-elect Donald Trump's inaugural parade, organizers said. Talladega College's band will march at Trump's inauguration as other historically black schools such as Howard University, which performed at President Barack Obama's first inaugural parade, said they won't be marching in the Jan. 20 event. "We were a bit horrified to hear of the invitation," said Shirley Ferrill of Fairfield, Alabama, a member of Talladega's Class of 1974. "I don't want my alma mater to give the appearance of supporting him," Ferrill said...

    On the same day as the U.N. Security Council passed a controversial resolution condemning Israel, the 193-member U.N. General Assembly on Friday approved a budget that includes $138,700 to fund the compilation of a first-ever U.N. blacklist of private companies doing business in territories disputed between Israel and the Palestinians. Defined in U.N. documents as a “database,” the blacklist will cover companies of any nationality that do business in Israeli “settlements” located in areas claimed by the Palestinians, including Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter. The move, which was mandated by the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) last March, is expected to benefit...

    Last week, it was announced that the Rockettes would be performing at Donald Trump's inauguration, with the group's union—the American Guild of Variety Artists—mandating the dancers show up to the gig or lose their jobs. After considerable public outcry, Rockettes' management claimed they would not be required to smile and dance at America's gateway to Gozer after all—but in an interview with Marie Claire, one Rockette says she and her fellow dancers are still terrified that there will be more fallout. The Rockette, who wished to remain anonymous, told Marie Claire that though many of the women who declined to...

    “If anyone does do it, I hope that the check that they get is in the nine figures. Because it’s probably the last check they’re ever going to get,” Simon Renshaw tells TheWrap The Dixie Chicks’ manager says the title of one of their songs sums up why Donald Trump’s inauguration team can’t book A-list talent: Hollywood isn’t ready to make nice with the president-elect. Trump’s inaugural committee is still struggling to lock in A-list talent for his big festivities, according to Hollywood insiders, and even offering ambassadorships to anyone who can wrangle top singers. “If anyone does do it,...

    Gab, a service that has been billed by some as the social network for the alt-right, has had its access to both Twitter and Apple cut off, the company told Inc. on Thursday. Last week, Gab submitted its iPhone app to Apple so it could be included in the App Store, but on Wednesday, the company received a rejection from Apple, which cited pornography on Gab as its reason for the denial. Similarly, Gab on Monday added a new feature that let its users share their posts from Gab directly to Twitter, but on Wednesday night, Twitter cut off Gab's...

    The United Nations is set to vote next week to fund a "blacklist" of Israeli and international companies operating in Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and in Judea and Samaria. The vote, which will take place in the Fifth Committee which oversees the UN's budget and administration, will authorize funding for the UN's Human Rights Council to compile the list. The intent to create the list, which is expected to be utilized by Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists for anti-Israel activities, caused an international uproar when it was announced last March. Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, announced...

    The angry Left looks to punish conservative media for Trump’s victory Someone behind an anonymous Twitter account is trying to destroy the influential conservative Breitbart News website by smearing it as “racist” – and he’s already scared at least 47 advertisers away from Breitbart. In the current atmosphere of left-wing hysteria over the surprise election of Donald Trump as president, this blacklisting project has already earned an impressive return on investment. Breitbart is a target of the wrath of social justice warriors because it reports the truth about the Left and it used to be run by Stephen Bannon, now...

    The following is an email from Mark Nugent of Sacramento california who at the age of 16 was forced into the mental health system against his will, branded mentally ill, stripped of his trust fund by his liberal parents and forced on SSI. The SSI program was originally intended for those liberals branded too old or too stupid to work. It pays very little, about $695 a month and to receive it one must not hold assets or property worth more than $2000.  People with disabilities who receive SSI [Supplemental Security Income] payments continue to be the nation’s poorest citizens....

    DONALD Trump's protectionism has already stirred a hornet's nest in Europe with bureaucrats threatening an unprecedented clampdown on the new US president before he's even entered the Oval office. And the European Commission's tax chief has got the president-elect in his crosshairs after a meeting on Tuesday which began identifying countries which the EU intends to place on a tax blacklist. In an astonishing interview European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs Pierre Moscovici refused to rule out putting the USA on its blacklist. And he insulted Mr Trump calling him a “populist provocateur” before branding the...

    The European Union could remove Colombian guerilla movement FARC from its list of known terrorists, pending the signing of the peace agreement between the group and the country’s government. EurActiv Spain reports.Ahead of a formalization of the deal between FARC and the Colombian government, the EU indicated that it could soon remove the group from its terrorist blacklist. “FARC currently sits on the list of terrorist organizations in Colombia,” confirmed European Commission spokesperson Maja Kocijancic today (26 September), adding that the EU “has strongly supported the Colombia peace deal”.

    With many big-name conservative commentators vigorously opposed to — or, at least, highly skeptical of — Donald Trump, cable news channels have looked to the end of the bench for articulate, telegenic supporters of the Republican presidential front-runner. Who outside Boston had heard of Adriana Cohen before she accused Ted Cruz's former communications director, live on CNN last month, of sleeping with the Texas senator? And who, since season one of "The Apprentice," had cared what Omarosa Manigault said, until she made an off-the-wall remark about Fox News Channel contributor Tamara Holder's "big boobs" during an interview on Fox Business...

    Watching President Barack Obama hang out with Cuban “president” Raul Castro immediately triggered a question in my mind: How many innocent people were murdered during Fidel and Raul Castro’s brutal Cuban experiment in socialism? An exact number is hard to find, and available data does not include human suffering due to lack of food and basic services. But the consensus is stark: In his authoritative book “Power Kills,” R.J. Rummel estimates that the Castro regime murdered some 77,000 to 141,000 innocents, including deaths by firing squad and other executions, disappearances, and “extrajudicial killings.” This estimate likely does not include some...

    Last week the unhinged #NeverTrump crowd started up a list of conservative supporters of Donald Trump — so that they can blackball these Trump supporters. The list was initiated by Cruz supporter Amanda Carpenter who is usually kind and intelligent but now suffers from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.Today former Governor Sarah Palin responded to the threats from the elitist GOP crowd. This was brutal.
