    "Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive," says the former Democratic presidential nominee. Teen Vogue's "woke" coverage of sociopolitical issues over the past two years has drawn ire from critics (Tucker Carlson among the most vocal), but with its latest cover star, the glossy just proved that its expanded focus is more than just a phase. The title secured Hillary Clinton as a guest editor and cover star for a special edition of the Conde Nast publication, which hits newsstands Dec. 5. Additionally, it was announced that she will serve as the...
  • Harper’s Bazaar urges women to divorce husbands if they support Trump

    According to an August 11 article published by #Harper’s Bazaar, anyone who is married to a supporter of President Trump needs to file for divorce immediately. That’s the advice given by the article’s author, #Jennifer Wright, who cites two recent high-profile divorce cases in which a wife filed for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable political differences. In July, a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader by the name of Lynn Aronberg split from her husband, Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg. The wife, who identified herself as a staunch Republican, claimed that she felt “increasingly isolated” in her marriage to a Democrat. More...
  • Hello, Media Fact Checkers! Hillary Claims She Beat Trump, and Nixon Was Impeached

    The Associated Press, PolitiFact, CNN, Snopes and all of the other "fact-checkers" should be busy this weekend and well into next week vetting the howlers contained in Rebecca Traister's New York Magazine Friday afternoon interview of a politician who has been in the public eye for decades. But it's a virtual lock that they won't bother, because the person Traister interviewed was Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton's montage of mendacity is virtually guaranteed to escape the scrutiny of "fact-checkers" because, as I noted at NewsBusters in mid-April, they "overwhelmingly select facts presented by Republican and conservative politicians and pundits, while ignoring similar howlers generated by...

    President-elect Donald Trump responded to Vanity Fair publishing a savage review of the Trump Grill last month by suggesting the magazine’s “no talent” editor, Graydon Carter, “will be out.” But on Friday, it’s Trump who will be inside Condé Nast, home to Vanity Fair and publications including The New Yorker, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Wired, GQ and Glamour. Trump is scheduled sit down with Carter and other members of Condé Nast’s leadership team, including Vogue editor and longtime Democratic donor Anna Wintour, at the company’s World Trade Center headquarters. Trump already met with Wintour last month at Trump Tower, on the...
  • Adam Winkler: Banning "Assault Rifles" Counterproductive

    Adam Winkler is a law professor at UCLA.  He has been reliably for imposing additional gun control laws, but is more "moderate" than many academics on the left.  He has more intellectual honesty than most, and has fairly described the racist roots of gun control in the United States. It is interesting to note that Winkler has been writing about the futility of "assault rifle" bans as early as February of 2015. From the latimes.com: There are approaches to gun control, such as universal background checks and cracking down on rogue gun dealers, that can reduce the daily death...
  • Iconic African American magazines Ebony, Jet sold to Texas firm

    Austin private equity firm Clear View Group has purchased two iconic African American lifestyle magazines from Chicago-based Johnson Publishing in a sale that took place in May, according to the Chicago Tribune. Ebony, a periodical that has reflected the lives of African Americans since 1945, was a notable influence and observer during the civil-rights movement of the 1960s. Historical images of subjects such as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali and Lena Horne were not part of the sale. Jet magazine has transformed from print to digital only.

    In his second speech on Sunday morning's terrorist massacre in Orlando, Florida, President Barack Obama said  on Monday that "the shooter was inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the Internet," that "we see no clear evidence that he was directed externally," and that "this is certainly an example of the kind of homegrown extremism that all of us have been so concerned about for a very long time." The press, led as usual by the Associated Press, is certainly cooperating with those characterizations. Presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has clearly made up her mind that...
  • JPFO Launches "High Cap Freedom"

    JPFO Launches "High Cap Freedom" by Rabbi Dovid Bendory, Rabbinic Director, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Copyright 2011 JPFO Rabbi BendoryJPFO today launches "The High Capacity Freedom Campaign". First, some background to highlight the hypocrisy and stupidity of a high-capacity magazine ban. Imagine you bought a Glock 17 9mm pistol a year ago. Your purchase was legal and included two 17-round magazines. Now along come Obama and other “common sense” gun-grabbers with a ban on “high capacity” magazines. The result? Based on the so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban of 1994, a federal mandate declares that after a certain date,...

    Melissa Harris-Perry has joined Elle.com, where she will serve as editor-at-large. Elle.com editorial director Leah Chernikoff says Harris-Perry “will focus on the intersection of race, gender, politics, and yes, even fashion, telling the often-overlooked stories of women and girls of color.” Harris-Perry left MSNBC after an internal memo became public in February. In the memo, Harris-Perry accused NBC News chairman Andy Lack and MSNBC president Phil Griffin of taking away her weekend morning discussion program. “I will not be used as a tool for their purposes,” she wrote. “I am not a token, mammy, or little brown bobble head.” “Joining...

  • Rubio's Age Is Problematic, But Hillary Being Post-Menopausal Makes Her 'Perfect'?

    Time.com's Zeke Miller tweeted yesterday that a "reporter" asked recently declared presidential candidate Marco Rubio of Florida the following question: "Is 43 old enough to be president?" Meanwhile, two weeks ago, a column at Time.com claimed that Hillary Clinton is "biologically primed to be a leader." Seriously. Since he either can't or won't tell us who asked the question, we're unable to determine if the "reporter" to whom Miller referred was asking the question because he or she doesn't know the Constitution or was trying to bait Rubio into giving an answer implicitly or explicitly criticizing other candidates. It would...

    When you look at the endless problems we face in society today, it’s easy to think, “But what I can do? I’m just one person.”The fact is that God only has people to use, and He uses one person at a time. It’s amazing to see what can happen when one person decides to take a stand.Lisa L. is the homeschooling mother of three children. She’s 35-years-old and, along with her husband Mike, graduated from our ministry training school when it was based in Pensacola, Florida.Initially, the transition from ministry school to motherhood was challenging, as Lisa went from wanting...

    After years of being a sucker and buying magazines off of the tables at gun shows, I'm done. I'm looking at my mags and I have about a dozen gun show mags and only maybe two or three are reliable and quiet. Most jam or don't activate the slide stop when empty or just plain rattle when loaded. I've spent an average of $15 each. For the same $ I could have bought 6 factory mags and have 6 good mags instead of 2 or 3. As an experiment I loaded a factory 7rd Ruger .45 mag with 7 rds...
  • The science of why magazines are always out of date in GPs waiting rooms (This is Hugh!)

    It is a curious phenomenon that magazines in doctor’s waiting rooms are always out of date. Now a study has discovered the reason. The more recent the publication, the more likely it is to be filched by light-fingered patients. Researchers at the University of Auckland found that GP waiting rooms generally contain older magazines no matter how hard staff try to keep supplies up to date. And patients hoping to find something light-hearted to take their mind off a tooth or tummy ache are also likely to be disappointed. For the magazines that get left behind are not only out...

    Wednesday morning, Cosmopolitan magazine hailed the fact that 100 women are going to serve in Congress for the first time ever. The only problem? The magazine rooted against a fifth of them – or at least ignored them. The fashion magazine for some reason decided to jump into politics this year and endorse candidates for the 2014 midterm elections. Surprise, surprise, all of the politicians they endorsed were pro-abortion Democrats. Here were just a few: Amanda Renteria, Jeanne Shaheen, Alison Lundergan Grimes, Mary Burke, Carol Shea-Porter, Michelle Nunn, Staci Appel, and everyone’s favorite candidate, Wendy Davis. In the House races, specifically, conservative, pro-life...

    The New York Times ^ | October 23, 2014 | Ross Douthat
    Some years ago now, when the conservative media group Newsmax put in a bid to buy the limping, failing Newsweek, I wrote a post arguing that trying to reinvent one of the newsweeklies as a (moderately) right-of-center publication was as good a bet as any. Here was the nub of my argument: If [Jon Meacham, the previous editor] had wanted to play to what seems like Newsweek’s business strength — its large audience outside the Acela corridor — he would have tried to tilt the magazine toward the center-right rather than the center-left, in the hopes of becoming the go-to...

    After having formally launched JPFO’s “High Capacity Freedom” campaign (aka “High Cap Freedom”), JPFO’s Rabbi Dovid Bendory listed five reasons why you would WANT (not “need”) a high capacity ammunition magazine. We purposely held back at that time the crucial “Sixth Reason”. It has “stand alone” significance, and is probably the most important reason for an armed citizenry to “keep and bear” significant weaponry and ammunition capacity. It has been called the “elephant in the room” of American gun rights. Few in the Second Amendment movement are comfortable contemplating this critical issue. The matter is simple: “We the People”, as...
