  • The mature stoner: why are so many seniors smoking weed?

    Older people are the fastest-growing group of cannabis users, as stigma fades and some seek an alternative to prescription drugs As attitudes towards cannabis shift, the fastest-growing group of users is over 50 – and marijuana’s popularity among seniors is beginning to change the American experience of old age. Why are more seniors getting high? It might make more sense to ask: “Why not?” As adults reach retirement, they age out of drug tests and have far more time on their hands. Some feel liberated to abandon long-held proprieties. Elegant vape pens and other attractive, discreet products have helped de...

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    An inveterate fan of Christmas music, I added to my Sirius presets the Hallmark Radio Channel -- Channel 70, if you are looking -- the day after Thanksgiving. I have been rotating this channel, which plays standards from the American songbook, with a Christian station that features more traditional Christian music. I was pleased to hear that the Hallmark Channel continues to play the slightly naughty, 1949, call-and-response classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Hallmark, in fact, may very well play this song in its multiple versions more than any other. Composed by Frank Loesser of “Guys and Dolls” fame,...

    A coalition of women's rights organizations filed an appeal to the High Court of Justice arguing that Israel's recently-relaxed gun laws are causing more women to be murdered. According to Ynet, the ten different organizations say that a recent uptick of murders are the direct result of a decision by Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan to allow veterans of IDF infantry units to obtain personal handgun permits. In addition, the appeal claims that 40% of all women are murdered in Israel by handguns compared to only 28% in the OECD. "There is a clear and proven connection between the extent...

    Deadline ^ | December 1, 2018 | Geoff Boucher
    Forty years ago the big holiday hit was Superman, Hollywood’s very first superhero blockbuster. Warner Bros marketed the movie by promising the sky to moviegoers: “You’ll believe a man can fly.” Now, four decades later, that promise should be rewritten to reflect a new era of superhero blockbusters: “You better believe a woman can fly, too.” Deadline broke the news this week that Sony is ramping up a Spider-Women film that will feature three female iterations of Marvel’s wall-crawling Spider-Man and a script by Bek Smith. The project joins a growing wave of female superhero projects in the works that...
  • Elizabeth Yore on FGM: ‘Silence from Feminists Has Been Deafening on This Issue’

    Elizabeth Yore, an international child protection attorney, spoke on Wednesday to host Alex Marlow of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, highlighting the silence of feminists — and feminism’s prioritization of “diversity” — on the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM). “The silence from feminists has been deafening on this issue,” said Yore. “We need the support of feminists who believe in the rights of women to enjoy sexual pleasure. Well, these little girls have been robbed of that for the rest of their lives.” Yore added, “We’re supposed to be feminists, right? We’re supposed to protect women and girls. Why are...

    Ah, to have an all-female workplace, full of sugar and spice and everything nice and absent #MeToo turpitude and transgressions. Are you in, ladies? Well, before signing on that dotted line, you may want to consider the experiences of the sugar-and-spice girls at Sweden’s new Gender Equality Authority. Yes, that sounds like what’s birthed when Orwell’s 1984 meets The Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (Bill Maher’s most memorable movie), but it wasn’t mainly men being consumed in this bureaucracy. As Sweden’s FriaTider reports (auto-translated and corrected for grammar): The New Gender Equality Authority has a leadership consisting...

    This is CNN… On Friday, the outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news for its rabid anti-Trump and anti-Republican bias, published an op-ed suggesting that women engage in a “sex strike” before the midterm election, no doubt to help Democrats. “It’s time for a revolution,” wrote Wednesday Martin. “At the polls, and in the bedroom. And in our understanding of who women are, sexually and otherwise. Given the tight interweaving of economic and political power with sexual entitlement, female sexual autonomy has never been more urgent, and women’s sexual pleasure has never been more political. Let’s consider what...

That's right, fellas, you're all out of luck with the #Resist girls. Author Wednesday Martin has penned an essay at CNN called "What if Women Went On a Sex Strike Before the Midterms?"

    “So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right. And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?” –Don Lemon Just to illustrate the absurdity of Don Lemon’s comments, I thought it would be fun to go look at the current list of the FBI’s most wanted terrorists.

    Talk about a crowning achievement: FX has lured Cate Blanchett to the small screen. The two-time Oscar winner has signed on to star in FX’s ’70s-set limited series Mrs. America, TVLine has learned. The gig will mark Blanchett’s first major role in a U.S. television series. Created and written by former Mad Men scribe Dahvi Waller, Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly (played by Blanchett). Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and...

    Some parents are proud when their kids are kind, generous, loving and compassionate. Feminist parents are proud when their kid CRIES after encountering a non-feminist. That’s exactly what Maggie Gyllenhaal’s daughter did. She’s obviously proud, because she told the story to everyone on “The View.” “She ran into somebody recently, a little girl her age, who said she wasn’t feminist and my daughter was astonished … she came home and cried to me about it,” she said. The View ✔ @TheView @mgyllenhaal shares about her 12-year-old daughter, who she calls an activist: "She ran into somebody recently, a little girl...

    Democratic allies gathered downtown Saturday for Chicago’s latest Women’s March, with organizers pushing for participants to help get out the vote ahead of next month’s midterm elections. Organized as a nonprofit — and not specifically endorsing candidates — the group Women’s March Chicago is bankrolled by Democrats and Democratic supporters. Major donors include the Chicago Federation of Labor and Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker’s campaign. Several thousand took part in Saturday’s march and rally, which was the third Women’s March through Chicago. It was a far cry from the roughly 250,000 who marched through the city shortly after President Donald...

    An activist group has filed a Title IX complaint against Georgetown University Professor Christine Fair, who came under fire earlier this month for calling for the deaths and castration of several GOP senators. “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” Fair wrote in the tweet on September 29. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” Since then, Fair’s Twitter account has been briefly suspended and reactivated. Now, the National Coalition for Men has filed...

    More than 650 law professors, including 13 affiliated with Yale Law School and 21 with Harvard Law School, have signed a letter to the Senate arguing that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed because of his “lack of judicial temperament.” The professors pointed to Kavanaugh’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week amid allegations of sexual misconduct, where the Yale Law School graduate defended himself and called the attacks a “grotesque and coordinated character assassination.” “The question at issue was of course painful for anyone. But Judge Kavanaugh exhibited a lack of commitment to judicious inquiry,”...

    House of Representatives Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the Texas Tribune that she felt famous feminists “crowding” her in her chair during her first meeting with President George W. Bush in the White House after becoming part of the Democratic leadership in the House of Representatives. […] Three of these women — (Susan B.) Anthony, (Elizabeth Cady) Stanton and (Alice) Paul — were also pro-life, in contrast to Pelosi’s pro-abortion views. In her interview, Pelosi suggested that a woman’s “right” to have an abortion was non-negotiable. “One place you can’t find common ground, I can just tell you...

    They're just putting on stupid t-shirts, vulgar costumes and hats, and crashing hearings, fundraisers or legislative meetings in order to convince themselves that their agenda is meaningful. It's time to tell feminists to shut the hell up The #MeToo crowd, also known as “feminists,” have shown they are not rational, nor are they feminine. They are not ladylike, girlish, soft, tender, or effeminate, as is the definition of feminine. Even more importantly, radical feminists are not on pleasant terms with the truth. What causes these feminists to be so angry all of the time? I’ve long said their misplaced anger...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, late Sunday slammed Senate Democrats for withholding information from the committee regarding new sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The Iowa Republican said the committee will attempt to evaluate the new claims, but said in a statement “it appears that they [Democrats] are more interested in a political takedown" than “pursing allegations through a bipartisan and professional investigative process.” His office released the statement after two new allegations emerged against Kavanaugh.

    As one of our authors said in a column at the beginning of Kavanaugh’s hearing, this current method of “examining” SCOTUS nominees started with Robert Bork. Once the left saw Teddy Kennedy’s success, they grabbed ‘hold and haven’t let go. This is our opportunity to turn it around. We’ve been afraid to “discredit” a sexual assault or harassment victim. Unfortunately, the Left has made those terms so vague as to render them meaningless. And, they’ve insisted we believe every female because… chromosomes. In my opinion, Chrsitine Blasey Ford suffered some kind of trauma. I don’t know who the perpetrator was,...

    A jury has ordered a female blogger to pay an Army colonel she accused of rape a total of $8.4million in damages. Susan Shannon, 52, who now lives in Everett, Washington, first alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Army Colonel David 'Wil' Riggins in 1986, while they were both cadets, on her blog in 2013. She said she waited three decades to come forward about her experience because of the army's 'code of silence'.
