    Former Democratic Gov. Steven Beshear’s response to President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday evening was so underwhelming even liberal pundits like MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow described it as “stunty and small.” Immediately following Trump’s address, the impressed hosts of CNN remarked upon the “subdued” and “different tone” the president struck in this speech to “reset” the national dialogue. CNN host Anderson Cooper even admitted that the speech was quite “moving” in key parts.

    John Lewis Makes A Fool of Himself On Capitol Hill... by refusing to attend the 2017 Inauguration. Lewis is apparently outraged over the loss of his party leader's bid for the presidency. Although Donald J. Trump won thirty of the fifty states and more individual counties than any other U.S. president since President Reagan, Lewis has been unable to accept his party's defeat. Accepting an uncomfortable loss is a life experience that escapes John R. Lewis, a man of 76 years of age. Lewis can be found declaring the President-Elect was not legitimately elected and promising to forego the Inauguration....

    On Monday, the six-month anniversary of the Pulse nightclub massacre, the city of Orlando kicks off an initiative designed to make lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people safer. The Orlando Police Department will issue a new rainbow decal in the shape of a badge for offices, stores and organizations that want to participate. "This location is a SAFE PLACE for victims of anti-LGBTQ crimes and harassment to call 911 and wait for police to arrive," it says.

    So it looks like we've been played. I don't want to hear people say about how this or that was misquoted, because they weren't. Assange promised a Clinton email dump that would indict her. Dot Kom hinted he would release all 33,000 of her emails. Anonymous promised Bill's child porn. WHERE IS IT??? It's too late now if there was such a leak to play. The media takes three days just to notice anything. There's no doubt that Assange's leaks have hurt Hillary. But the coup de gras was supposed to be HER stuff. We've seen emails from everyone on...

    The first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was a major event and with that, there is pressure to appear to be informed. So we went out on the street during the afternoon before the debate and asked people what they thought of the debate 'last night.' The debate hadn't even occurred yet, but that did not stop them in this special debate edition of #LieWitnessNews.

    South Africa’s parliament has approved a bill that would see the government make compulsory land purchases from rich whites and redistribute it more fairly to address racial disparities, two decades after the fall of apartheid. The ruling African National Congress (ANC) has the August elections to consider, and the party has promised to ramp up the series of measures with its Expropriation Bill, South Africa’s Mail & Guardian reports. Having passed the National Assembly, which added changes on Thursday, the bill will now head to President Jacob Zuma’s desk for signing. The bill combines a series of measures that would...

    New Jersey hospital emergency room becomes first in U.S. to end use of opioid painkillers PATERSON, N.J. -- St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center announced it has become the first hospital in the country to implement a program that will manage patients' pain in the emergency room without the use of opioid painkillers. Painkillers most frequently used in the emergency room in the past were oxycodone, vicodin and percocet, according to Dr. Mark Rosenberg, the Emergency Department chair. “Our job here together is to look at the whole equation and understand how we can stop people from going from a prescription,...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) acknowledged that "Iran may do bad things with the $150 billion that will be released to them as part of the deal negotiated by the Obama Administration. "Will they fund terrorist cells?" Pelosi asked. "Undoubtedly, but these terrorists will only kill thousands. A nuclear weapon could kill millions. Under this premise, paying billions that would enable terrorists to kill thousands seems a worthwhile trade off." "Sometimes you've got to make a deal with the devil," she added. "For example, look at the deal Chamberlain made with Hitler in 1938. A small sliver of land...

    NBC Bay Area ^ | 1/14 | Tamara Palmer
    A kinder, gentler car has debuted in Palo Alto. Tesla Motors has made vegan interiors (seats, steering wheels and gear shifts) an option on its new, falcon-winged electric Model X SUV thanks to the urging of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a company shareholder. "By offering a 100 percent leather-free car, Tesla is pushing its eco-friendly business even further into the future," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a statement. "PETA can now point to Tesla as a source for top-quality vehicles whose cruelty-free seats are as kind to the environment as its engines are." New...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | December 10, 2015 | Adam Kredo
    A Senate committee on Thursday approved a resolution that critics described as an "unprecedented" move granting immigrants easier access to the United States. The amendment, offered by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D., Vt.) and first reported on by the Washington Free Beacon, affirms the Senate's belief "that the United States must not bar individuals from entering into the United States based on their religion, as such action would be contrary to the fundamental principles on which this Nation was founded." The language was offered in response to recent comments from a presidential candidate who called on Muslims to be barred from...

    A NASCAR spokesperson said the request would pertain to "overt displays" of the Confederate flag. If you're a fan wanting to bring in a 15-foot Confederate flag to fly on track property while at a race or are planning to use the symbol as a way to make a boisterous statement, you're likely going to be asked to not do so and possibly escorted out of the track premises.

    It is always those in the middle -- and especially what Marxist intellectuals call the petit bourgeois, the aspiring, hard-working workers and savers -- who are hurt the hardest It was Adam Smith who put it best. “There is a great deal of ruin in a nation”, he wrote in reply to an over-excited young man who thought that Great Britain was facing devastation after a setback during the US war of independence. Smith was right about the specifics as well as the general point, of course: America was thankfully soon to win its independence, and both Britain and the...

    Caesar's death was more than the end of an extraordinary life; it was the end of an era. Karl Theodor von Piloty, The Murder of Caesar (1865), oil on canvas “No country was ever saved by good men,” Horace Walpole once observed, “because good men will not go to the length that may be necessary.” I thought often of Walpole’s remark while reading Barry Strauss’s thrilling account of the assassination of Julius Caesar, which is full of robust men going to incarnadine lengths. [snip] I have always been slightly puzzled about what exactly Caesar did to rouse the murderous fury...

    Fool me once. We were told that the health care system was broken. As a result, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law with the promise that premiums would be lower, we could keep our doctors and our insurance. Fool me twice. When the IRS was accused of targeting conservative groups, the president said there was not even a "smidgen" of corruption. Of course the Department of Justice declined to investigate. Fool me thrice. When four Americans were killed in Benghazi, it was said the cause was an offensive video. Susan Rice went out on a Sunday morning and...

    'Taco Liberty Bell' (1996): Taco Bell Corp placed a full-page ad in seven major newspapers announcing it had 'bought the Liberty Bell' and was renaming it the 'Taco Liberty Bell' in-order to help pay-down the national debt. Predictably, angry (+ slightly naive and/or lacking a calendar) citizens melted the phones at the offices of the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell is kept. Taco Bell executives let them stew for a few hours before revealing it was all an April Fools gag at noon.  President Clinton's quick-on-his-feet White House press secretary Mike McCurry responded when asked about the...
