    Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday was presented with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award, which celebrates leaders “who have demonstrated a commitment to social change," the Associated Press reported. “I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but I’ve been on this hope kick for a while now. Even ran a couple of campaigns on it. Thank you for officially validating my hope credentials,” Obama said during his acceptance speech. “If we summon our best selves, we can inspire others to do the same. It’s easy to succumb to cynicism, the notion that hope is a...

    FULL TITLE: Unfixable? Several nations have tried to restore democracy after populist strongmen. It was never the same. In April, aided by massive gerrymandering, Prime Minister Viktor Orbans ruling coalition crushed opposition in Hungarys national elections, claiming a supermajority in the parliament. The prime minister who had used two prior terms in office to dominate media outlets, alter electoral rules so that urban areas were massively underrepresented and seize control of the top courts moved to further consolidate his power. He is pushing Central European University, a leading academic institution backed by George Soros, whom Orban has demonized,...

  • Ocasio-Cortez Suggests Ditching Columbus Day For Election Day Holiday

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the incoming U.S. representative from New York City, has an idea that could make voting easier: Take Columbus Day off the federal holiday list and replace it with Election Day. In a tweet Saturday, the progressive Democrat wondered why Columbus Day is a federal holiday while Election Day, when we engage in perhaps our most important civic duty, is not. Columbus Day, after all, celebrates a man who never actually set foot in what is now the United States and who certainly did not discover America. Daily Mail editor David Martosko tried to make a joke about Ocasio-Cortez...

    When a Canadian family noticed a group of bears on their property, the father attempted to scare them off by firing a warning shot into the air. Unfortunately, this provoked the mother bear, who charged. Amazingly, the man was able to fire off his last shot, momentarily knocking the beast off her feet and giving him enough time to make it back to safety. He later tracked the bear family, and believes while the mama bear is sore, shes okay. See the footage of bear attacks.

    **SNIP** Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic candidate running for a House seat from New York's 14th District, challenged the Trump administration "caravan" narrative and asked supporters to push back against white supremacy in the wake of the Pittsburgh hate crime attack. The 29-year-old Democratic Socialist has repeatedly challenged the talking points of both President Donald Trump and established members of the Democratic Party. But her recent move to refocus her efforts on white supremacist violence rather than "undocumented immigrants" prompted vicious right-wing criticism. Using her social media platforms with hundreds of thousands of followers, Ocasio-Cortez compared how Trump supporters and Americans...

    Speaker Ryan: You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday broke with President Donald Trump on whether an executive order could deny a constitutional guarantee of citizenship to babies born in the U.S. to noncitizen parents. But despite Ryan's stern rebuttal to the president, the idea of limiting birthright citizenship still has significant cache among congressional Republicans, even if they aren't quite sure how to undo a constitutional guarantee stemming from the 14th Amendment. Trump told Axios in an interview released Tuesday that the White House counsel had advised him that there was...

    A Fish and Game commissioner in Idaho who came under fire for circulating images of he and his wife posing with dead animals during a hunt in Africa resigned on Monday, saying he had made "poor judgments." In a letter to Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, the commissioner, Blake Fischer, said those judgments "resulted in sharing photos of a hunt in which I did not display an appropriate level of sportsmanship and respect for the animals I harvested." While claiming the photos were out of character, Fischer apologized and said he hoped the photos would "not harm the integrity and...

    Bold faced liars are Unfit for the Senate. Richard Blumenthal is a pathetic case of stolen valor lying and falsifying his military service. In the early days of "Da Nang Richard's" political career he repeatedly insinuated to voters that he served his country by fighting in the Vietnam War. He did not go to Vietnam. Truth: Da Nang Richard was a reservist who had never been deployed overseas, not once. How ironic that Blumenthal has the gall to insinuate that anyone else is not fit to serve office. How does Connecticut elect a man that has lied to them...

    When Burt Reynolds drove his celestial Trans-Am into the Great Beyond he took a significant chunk of Americas dwindling reserve of testosterone along with him. Unless you grew up in the 70s, its hard to understand his influence and impact, and how he reflected what Americans (particularly American men) wanted to be. Flicks like The Longest Yard, Smokey and the Bandit, and the criminally underrated Sharkeys Machine, all offered us a tough but funny hero who took on the bullies in authority with a smirk, a joke, and when appropriate, a football to the nether regions. Of course, you couldnt...

    Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in high school, faced allegations from her former employer that she engaged in unwelcome, sexually offensive conduct in 2000. WebTrends alleged in a lawsuit that, after the company determined she had engaged in inappropriate conduct, Swetnick made false and retaliatory allegations of sexual harassment against two male co-workers. Kavanaugh vehemently denied Swetnicks claims, and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, called the case bogus, pointing out that WebTrends dismissed its case.

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe? Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and cant swim, Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.' Cheers...

    Imagine this: the convicted domestic abuser next door tries to buy a gun. He's turned down because he fails his background check. When he gets home, he opens up his browser, and in half an hour he's printing out his own undetectable, fully functional plastic gun, with no background check and no record of his purchase. As of August 1, it will be a reality in America -- unless we are able to stop it. Due to a settlement between the State Department and Defense Distributed -- a Texas based designer of 3D guns -- felons, domestic abusers, terrorists, those...

    An Oregon woman recently came home to an unusual surprise: a mountain lion, which continued taking a nap for six more hours behind her sofa. The odd encounter took place on July 8 in the Ashland, Ore., home of Lauren Taylor. After drinking from a pond in Taylors backyard, the cat likely entered her home through an open back door, she explained in Facebook. The post had garnered more than 17,000 reactions and shares as of Tuesday morning.
