    Lutheran pastor and author Nadia Bolz-Weber has argued that there should be no shame in consuming pornography, especially if it is "ethically sourced." In a recent interview with the New Jersey-based LGBT publication Out In Jersey, Bolz-Weber discussed her upcoming new book on the issue of sexual ethics and the church. In discussing pornography, Bolz-Weber explained that while she recognizes that there are "issues of justice and exploitation within the porn industry," she still does not believe that the "consumption of pornography should be shamed." "There is ethically sourced porn. There are people who say it's sexual immorality, but if...

    Mitt Romney joined the fray on Tuesday defending the violent club-wielding Antifa terrorists from Charlottesville. An ignorant Mitt Romney defended the Antifa terrorists for rejecting “racism and bigotry.”"No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes." - Mitt Romney  This did not go unnoticed. Romney got schooled on Twitter for defending the violent domestic terrorist group. "The fact that you view Antifa as moral and acceptable is beyond disgusting. No wonder you lost resoundingly in your presidential run." - Alex@SoCal4Trump Ann Coulter tore into the former Republican leader. "The...

    Media Matters for America, the George Soros-funded progressive activist organization, is praising Trump’s National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster, for terminating some members of President Donald Trump’s National Security Council, criticizing conservative media for questioning his loyalty to the president, and his decision to allow former NSA Susan Rice continued access to classified information.   “Media in support of President Donald Trump are calling for the ouster of Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, accusing him of being a ‘globalist’ ‘traitor’ who is ‘aligned with the enemies of Trump and America,’ ” Media Matters wrote on its website on Friday....

    House Speaker, Paul Ryan once again showed he is the enemy within by defending Special Counsel Robert Mueller as ‘anything but’ a Dem partisan. The Washington Examiner reported that Paul Ryan spoke to Wisconsin-based radio host, Jay Weber on Monday and defended the witch hunt by Mueller, saying, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican who was appointed by a Republican who served in the Republican administration who crossed over and stayed on ’til his term ended.” “I don’t think many people are saying Bob Mueller is a biased partisan. He’s really, sort of, anything but,” Ryan continued. “The point is we...

    Hillary Clintons solution to combat terrorism? Understand those different from us, apparently including terrorists, right down to the foods they eat. While speaking Monday at a Baltimore fundraiser for a youth program that sends students to Israel, Clinton lashed out at President Trump and his response to the latest London terrorist attack. This is a time for us to reach out to the world, Clinton said, to understand more about what is happening. Not just in our own country but indeed across the globe. Its a time for steady, determined leadership, like we are seeing from local authorities in London,...

    Punk icon John Lydon, better known by his stage name Johnny Rotten, defended U.S. President Donald Trump against the left-wing media during a Monday interview in London. The former Sex Pistols frontman, who became a U.S. citizen in 2013, said on ITVs Good Morning Britain that Mr. Trump is a complicated fellow but doesnt deserve being labeled a racist by his liberal opponents. What I dislike is the left-wing media in America are trying to smear the bloke as a racist, and thats completely not true, the 61-year-old said. Theres many, many problems with him as a human being, but...

    Berlin (AFP) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday rebuffed calls to reverse her welcoming stance toward refugees after a series of brutal attacks in the country. Merkel, who interrupted her summer holiday to face the media in Berlin, said the four assaults within a week were "shocking, oppressive and depressing" but not a sign that authorities had lost control. The German leader said the assailants "wanted to undermine our sense of community, our openness and our willingness to help people in need". "We firmly reject this," she said at a wide-ranging news conference. Merkel repeated her rallying cry from...

    We're just one week away from the South Carolina primary and tonight the remaining six presidential candidates took the debate stage in Greenville to make a final push. Debate moderator John Dickerson opened the night with a moment of silence dedicated to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died earlier today after serving for three decades on the high court. The debate, hosted by CBS News, was certainly the most entertaining of the cycle with candidates repeatedly going after each other with an audience that loudly booed throughout the night.(snip) 2) Trump said Planned Parenthood does "many wonderful things for...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow co-moderated last night’s Democratic debate, and while she did receive praise for asking tough, substantive questions, she did receive criticism because of the very fact that she was an outspoken liberal commentator moderating a presidential debate. Oh, and also the fact that she hugged both candidates. On Fox News tonight, Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz had their doubts about Maddow’s claim she would do the same for Republicans, with Kurtz insisting “she should not have been on that stage.” Kelly, however, pointed out that the RNC has pushed for conservative commentators to co-moderate their debates (i.e....

    It looks like the GOP elites are absolutely intent on running Trump out of the race so they can control the process. The Party now determines who should be eligible to run and who meets their approval. Cruzs Washington Cartel analogy was right! Last week GOP leader Reince Priebus defended Megyn Kelly and FOX News after the controversial debate where they planned zingers for the Republican candidates. This week he approved Hugh Hewitt, who has frequently spoken out against the GOP front-runner Donald Trump, to be debate moderator at the next Republican debate.

    The Obama administration defended a recent meeting between White House and State Department officials and "Breaking the Silence," an activist group Israel's justice minister has condemned for "slander[ing] the State of Israel." Breaking the Silence, which according to NGO-Monitor gets its funding from European sources, issued a report last month containing what it says are testimonies of Israel's use of indiscriminate force against Palestinian civilians from anonymous IDF soldiers who served during last summer's Israel-Hamas conflict. Though the IDF said it would investigate the report, it has raised significant questions about its credibility, some Israeli soldiers labeling it "a total...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fresh from an embarrassing rebuke at the hands of conservatives in his own party, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner played down any risk to his continuing leadership on Sunday, saying disagreements with fellow Republicans were merely over strategy, not goals. Asked if he could lead the fractious House, Boehner said, "I think so. I'm not going to suggest it's easy, because its not." The House narrowly averted cutting off funds to the Department of Homeland Security on Friday after Boehner failed to rein in conservative Republicans. They were insisting on tying the issue to blocking...

    At his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu focused primarily on international issues including the Iran nuclear agreement, the struggle with Islamic State, and global anti-Semitism. "In the coming weeks, the major powers are liable to reach a framework agreement with Iran, an agreement that is liable to leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state, which would endanger - first and foremost - the existence of the State of Israel," Netanyahu warned as he began the meeting. "This is the same Iran that has taken over Lebanon and Syria and is now taking over Yemen and Iraq. This...

    EDGARTOWN Mass. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama delivered a somber statement on the death of American journalist James Foley after a video emerged showing Foley's grisly execution by Islamic State militants. Then Obama proceeded directly to a golf course to play 18 holes. That juxtaposition of events on Wednesday drew Obama a fair amount of criticism as he tries to juggle the U.S. response to rapidly unfolding world crises while taking some time to relax during a two-week August vacation that has been frequently interrupted.

Rivers got animated at the paparazzi's question about the mounting civilian casualties, saying, Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out. If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey."
