    Actress Kristin Davis opened up recently about her fear for the safety of her 5-year-old daughter, who is black, after Donald Trump’s Nov. 8 victory. A reported spike in hate crimes since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential election has raised concerns of a continued increase in racially motivated acts of violence. “I’m on the intense learning curve because I have to protect my child,” the “Sex and the City” star said in a “How I Got Over” interview with WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll. “I might have had the intellectual learning curve that we all hope and wish we...

    Robert Reich argued Trump is trying to boost his 2020 chances and “selling out Americans’ health to seal the deal.” Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich has broken down what he believes is President Donald Trump’s “lethal four-point plan” to boost his 2020 election chances by reopening the economy “at all costs” amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Clinton-era official explained in a video released on his YouTube channel Tuesday how Trump was trying to “remove income support, so people have no choice but to return to work,” “hide the facts” about testing for the contagion, “push a false narrative about ‘freedom’...

    Many gays with kids face the same challenges of straights with kids. How do you teach children morals? How do you get gum out of the dog’s hair? How do you teach children manners? How do you get your son or daughter into Harvard, Notre Dame, the Olympics or NBA Basketball? But a few of the challenges arise only in that particular environment of the gay man or men raising one or more straight sons. Boys grow up, and sometime between the period of cute adolescence and mature adulthood, there is that time when a son is a rebellious teenager....

  • Pro-Abortion Feminist: Pro-Life People Who Protect Babies From Abortions are “F—— Monsters”

    Several states are taking a stand on whether or not it’s “essential” to continue abortion during the coronavirus crisis. And so are many in the media. Their stance is no secret: abortion is “essential.” Pieces from Slate to the New York Times go so far as to suggest it’s even more necessary during a pandemic. And the politicians that are placing abortion on hold are “f****** monsters,” according to one Vice editor. That’s because, among their many reasons, they say that abortion is time-sensitive – and the lack of it endangers lives. Never mind that at least one life ends...
  • Donald Trump Has Stake In Hydroxychloroquine Drugmaker: Report (Huffington Post Hit Piece)

    President Donald Trump reportedly owns a stake in a company that produces hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug he has repeatedly touted as a coronavirus treatment even though his experts say there’s no strong evidence it works. Trump “has a small personal financial interest” in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine, The New York Times reported Monday. In addition, Sanofi’s largest shareholders include a mutual fund company run by major Republican donor Ken Fisher, the paper said. Trump’s three family trusts, as of last year, each had investments in a mutual fund whose largest holding was...
  • Elizabeth Warren Could Never Escape The Baggage Of Being A ‘Female Candidate’

    Elizabeth Warren wasnÂ’t trying to be the first female president. She wanted to be president. She wanted to cut banks down to size and relieve student debt. Root out the corrupt influence of money in politics and go after monopolies. Warren didnÂ’t focus on how sheÂ’d be breaking a glass ceiling. She didnÂ’t shy away from her gender, but when she talked about feminism, it was most often centered on female organizers and the movements theyÂ’ve led throughout history. But Warren couldnÂ’t just run for president. At every step of the campaign, she was reminded that people still saw her...

    The veteran ABC news anchor on Friday endorsed the billionaire media mogul’s run for president, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper he believed Bloomberg was the “best-suited” Democratic candidate to take on Donald Trump in November. But times had changed and he now felt compelled to act because “we are in the grip” of a “sick, ignorant man,” Donaldson explained. “He’s mean, he’s corrupt and if we don’t get this right, we may lose the things that have made this country the best place to live in the world and that shining city on the hill that Ronald Reagan used to talk...

    When the CNN moderators gave Sanders the Trump treatment, the outraged ululations of the Left could be heard from sea to shining sea. Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi tweeted, “This is an unusually vile performance by CNN.” The Nation’s Elie Mystal raged, “Jesus Christ I hate these biased questions from the moderators. ‘How would you keep your plan from bankrupting the country?’ JUST ASK THE KOCH BROTHERS TO MODERATE NEXT TIME!” HuffPost’s Zach Carter griped about CNN’s post-debate panel discussion, “CNN’s crew is just straight bashing Sanders post-debate.” The New Republic’s Libby Watson whined, “CNN is truly a terrible influence on...

    Bloomberg News drew fire earlier this year for making it company policy to not investigate its owner (liberal billionaire 2020 presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg) or his Democratic rivals going into the election. The company said they would continue to investigate President Donald Trump, however. A recent Bloomberg investigation showed the outlet violated that policy, and the liberal HuffPost is having none of it.

    A former security director for the Senate Intelligence Committee has pleaded guilty to one count of giving a false statement to FBI agents looking into leaks of national security information to several reporters, including one at the New York Times he dated, the Justice Department announced Monday.

    There’s an important revelation from the first day of impeachment hearings that I haven’t heard discussed. It has to do with the witnesses’ strange notion of how foreign policy works. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent and Acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor both accused President Trump of interfering with U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine. They indicated they differed with Trump’s skepticism of Ukraine’s newest leadership, and they disagreed with Trump’s apparent decision to keep Ukraine at a measured distance while he assessed the situation. They further said that Trump gave approval for his attorney and adviser, Rudy Giuliani, to develop a communications channel on Ukraine...

Numerous people woke up to odd text messages like these ― sent from friends and family members, exes even! They seemed to make little sense. The messages appeared disjointed, not relevant to any current or ongoing conversation. To add further...

    White House aides believed Mike Pence would support using the 25th Amendment to remove Donald Trump, a new book has claimed. The bombshell claim - immediately denied by the Vice President's camp - has emerged in a book by an anonymous Trump official entitled 'The Warning'. The official is the same one who wrote a New York Times op-ed in 2018 claiming to be 'part of the resistance' inside the Trump White House. In the book, the author claims that White House staff made a 'back-of-the-envelope tally' in 2017 of who would be willing to plot against Trump. According to...

    Peter Wehner said there’s a reason why many of President Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters won’t turn on him. “It is almost like a hermetically sealed world,” Wehner said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” “Facts are like BBs, they’re just bouncing off of a brick wall. They just don’t penetrate.” Wehner, who served in the administrations of presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and as a senior aide in the White House of President George W. Bush, said it comes down to a concept called the psychology of accommodation. “People decided early on for a variety of reasons to accommodate...

    George Conway, who is married to senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, said Thursday that President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office “without delay” if it turns out he pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on political rival Joe Biden. The conservative attorney, a frequent critic of the president, was referring to a report in British newspaper The Independent that Trump allegedly told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden if he wanted to improve relations with the U.S. Three House committees launched an investigation last week to determine if the president, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani...
