  • George Will: GOP Must Stop Trump Even if He Wins Nomination–The Hill

    04/30/2016 4:34:28 PM PDT · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 44 replies
    Conservative columnist George Will is calling on the GOP to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, even if he wins the nomination. “Donald Trump’s damage to the Republican party, although already extensive, has barely begun,” Will wrote in a new Washington Post column Saturday. Will warns a Trump nomination would create “down-ballot carnage” that could end Republican control of the House.

  • Boom times for rent-a-mobs

    These are busy — and profitable — times for rent-a-mobs. Just days after Black Friday protests against Walmart stores, many of the same agitators will be out again on Thursday protesting at fast-food restaurants in New York City and across the country. We’re all supposed to pretend these are “organic” worker “uprisings” against exploitative employers; in fact, they’re all bankrolled by Big Labor and its allies. At the forefront of this perpetual protest machine is New York’s Restaurant Opportunities Center, the union-founded “worker center” infamous for its protest shakedowns of nonunion restaurants.
  • Author suggests childless women deserve 'meternity' leave

    An author is receiving backlash after voicing that childless women also deserve a maternity leave. The concept is deemed a "meternity" leave, and Meghann Foye makes her statement in an article in the New York Post. Foye, 38, thought up the idea when she was a magazine editor and became "envious" of her co-workers who would leave to care for their children after their eight hour days. She said that she felt as if all of the childless workers had to then pick up the slack and work for ten or more hours a day.

Tom Wolf signed the executive order Thursday. He says he can't wait any longer for Republican lawmakers to move on legislation that would ban such discrimination in employment, housing and public services. Wolf says Pennsylvania needs to be seen as a welcoming place. The move has the support of some of the state's biggest businesses and business advocacy groups. It comes amid a backlash over what Wolf has called a "discriminatory" bill signed by North Carolina's governor.

He and 34 others had died the day before when their Air Force plane crashed into a Croatian mountainside. Not one to shy from exploitation of a tragedy, President Clinton was busily profaning the memory of Martin Luther King – who had been killed on April 4, 1968 – by comparing King’s mission to Brown’s. What Clinton did not say was that Brown had gone to Croatia to broker a sweetheart deal between the neo-fascist strongman who ran Croatia, Franjo Tudjman, and...

Open wounds that are exposed to canine saliva can also increase the risk of contracting meningitis, according to Sykes. Playing fetch with a dog is...

    WASHINGTON — A Republican senator's remarks expressing support for Senate consideration of President Barack Obama's Supreme Court pick have angered conservatives and underscored the passion the issue stirs in GOP and Democratic activists. The comments by Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran put him at odds with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other GOP leaders, who have said the chamber won't hold hearings or a vote on the nominee. Only a handful of Senate Republicans have diverged from that stance.
