When she was elected to that post on Nov. 14, 2002, Pelosi became the first woman in U.S. history to become the leader of either party in the House or Senate. “I sit down and as he [President...

    CNN commentator and longtime Clinton ally Paul Begala said Wednesday that the U.S. should be debating whether to "blow up" agencies like the GRU in an apparent call for President Donald Trump to bomb Russia. Begala, who like many Democrats praised Barack Obama for mocking Mitt Romney's description of Russia as "our No. 1 geopolitical foe" in 2012, said on CNN that Russia is a "hostile foreign power" and the Trump administration should be "retaliating massively" for Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election in 2016. "We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power, and they seem...

    Does anyone here understand Beck's intense hatred for Trump? I mean he seems to have more in common in values with Beck than Hilary (pro-gun, pro-life, constitutionial justices.) So what rationale does he give for his hatred towards the man while he has the "oh whatever" attitude towards Hillary? Anyone know?

    “All we need to do is establish one pair,” Evers said. “Once that one pair is established and once that pair produces young, and those young come back, and they start to establish territories, then you’ve got some brooding that can start from that little seed.” However, common loons can be slow to recover because they don’t breed until they are several years old. “Loons depend on high-quality habitat without certain types of disturbance,” said Danielle D’Auria, a wildlife biologist with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

    He's known in MSNBC ranks as "the most radical preacher in America." But it's not the message that makes him radical. Rather, it's the messenger himself. Allyson Dylan Robinson is the first openly transgender ordained in the Baptist church. Donning long red hair and thick-rimmed glasses, he told the Alliance of Baptists he was a "white, straight, lower/upper middle class, European-descended man" when he first arrived at Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary. As Robinson tells the story, he prayed for 30 years that God would change him and even tried deliverance ministry to find freedom. But God did...

    Glenn Beck has been one of Ted Cruz’s most high profile surrogates—but Beck’s support could become a little less desirable when he heads to court this summer for allegedly defaming a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing…… One of Ted Cruz’s most prominent supporters could be headed to court soon to defend his Islamophobic falsehoods about a victim of terrorism. “…But come this summer, it’s Beck who could face judgement. The radio talker currently faces a defamation lawsuit—because he doubled and tripled down on charges that a victim of a terrorist attack was actually the real terrorist. “… previously unnoticed...
