  • Watch: Sheila Jackson Lee Rails Against Trump Budget as Racist, Claims It Invokes Slavery

    Watch: Sheila Jackson Lee Rails Against Trump Budget as Racist, Claims It Invokes Slavery Democrats seem to term everything racist, especially when it has anything to do with Republicans or President Donald Trump, whether it makes sense or not. Some of the things they’ve termed racist over the years are just downright silly. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) demonstrated exactly that during a Congressional hearing on the proposed Trump budget for next year. Russell Vought was answering questions for the Office of Management and Budget to Congress. Lee attacked the budget talking about the “racist roots of work” and then...
  • Dems demand Twitter, Facebook take down edited video of Pelosi ripping up State of the Union speech posted by Trump.

    Democrats are calling on Twitter and Facebook to take down an edited video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripping up the State of the Union address -- claiming it's designed to “mislead” people. “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, said Friday.

  • ‘Make or break moment.’ Tampa Bay leaders hold climate change summit.

    Tampa Bay ^ | 1/08/20 | Zachary T. Sampson, Langston Taylor
    ST. PETERSBURG — As she arrived to speak at the region’s first ever resilience leadership summit, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor came upon a hotel parking lot packed with cars. Hundreds of people from local governments, universities and scientific consulting firms had shown up Tuesday. Valets at the Hilton in Carillon Park double-parked vehicles, choking the entry. The scene summarized the day: a symbol both of the growing interest in climate change in Tampa Bay and the enormous hurdles officials face as they aim to curb emissions (from cars, for instance) contributing to rising seas. **SNIP** Among the first speakers was...
  • 'Duty as a citizen': Bruce Ohr concealed efforts to spread Steele dossier

    Bruce Ohr, the highest-ranking Obama Justice Department official to involve himself in distributing the anti-Trump dossier, carried out his freelancing through numerous meetings, phone calls and emails as a link between the FBI and Hillary Clinton forces. He told a colleague that the Russia election scandal reached the top — Donald Trump. It was his “duty as a citizen” to spread the unverified allegations around town, he said. During all of Mr. Ohr’s maneuverings, from the summer of 2016 to Mr. Trump’s election to the fall of 2017, he hid the operation from his bosses. When Mr. Ohr’s name surfaced...
  • Could Tax Increases Speed Up the Economy? Democrats Say Yes

    New York Times ^ | December 5, 2019 | Jim Tankersley
    WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren is leading a liberal rebellion against a long-held economic view that large tax increases slow economic growth, trying to upend Democratic policymaking in the way supply-side conservatives changed Republican orthodoxy four decades ago. Generations of economists, across much of the ideological spectrum, have long held that higher taxes reduce investment, slowing economic growth. That drag, the consensus held, would offset the benefits to growth from increased government spending in areas like education. Ms. Warren and other leading Democrats say the opposite. The senator from Massachusetts, who is a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, contends...

    Responding officials found swastikas tagged on three vehicles, the garage door of a home and a stop sign, officials said in a news release. Investigators were interviewing neighbors and “following up on leads.” Officials do not believe the incident is a hate crime and it is being investigated as vandalism.

    STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Luke Logan missed a 35-yard extra point after Mississippi receiver Elijah Moore was penalized for celebrating a touchdown by crawling and pretending to urinate like a dog, and Mississippi State ended up with a 21-20 victory Thursday night in the 116th Egg Bowl. Ole Miss (4-8, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) pulled within a point with 4 seconds remaining on Matt Corral's 2-yard pass to Moore, but Logan hooked the extra point after Moore cost the Rebels 15 yards. "That's not who we are. We've been a disciplined team all year, and so just disappointed that happened," coach Matt...

    Full Header: Hilarious takedown of Dems’ shifting accusations… ‘collusion’ to ‘quid pro quo’ to ‘extortion’ to ‘bribery’ The Trump campaign rapid response team is on its toes. They just emailed a hilarious response to the start of hearings today: High Crimes (and Focus Groups!) Impeachment “is about patriotism. It’s not about politics,” a very sad and somber Nancy Pelosi insisted again yesterday. “It’s not about anything political. It’s about patriotism.” Actually, it’s about polling. The Washington Post reports today that “Democrats have stopped using the term ‘quid pro quo,’ instead describing ‘bribery’ as a more direct summation of Trump’s alleged...

    It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo. The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don't appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification. In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, 'Yes.' However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked 'uneasy', and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting. 'Errr. I'm just learning about this,' Hillary responded. 'It's a very...
  • Air Canada Will No Longer Refer To Passengers As “Ladies & Gentlemen”.

    Many airlines are making efforts to be more inclusive. For example, earlier this year we saw airlines for the first time add a non-binary gender option when booking travel, including the option to select “X” as your gender (rather than “M” or “F”). Air Canada is largely a progressive airline, and La Presse reports on an internal memo that has been sent to employees. Currently Air Canada’s flight attendants, gate agents, and pilots, refer to passengers as “ladies and gentlemen” when making announcements, but they’ll soon be updating their phrasing to be more gender neutral.

    Just 20 years ago, great white shark sightings were so rare in the North Atlantic that they were declared "vulnerable" and given protected status by the U.S. government. Now they are seen so often, and so close to shore, they are drawing a public outcry, particularly on Cape Cod. Bill Whitaker reports on the great white controversy for the 52nd season premiere of "60 Minutes" on Sunday, September 29 at 7:30 p.m. ET and 7 p.m. PT on CBS. It's true there are many more great whites now say scientists who study them. Whitaker saw them not much more than...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- Overdue library fines will now be a thing of the past for Chicago residents. Starting Tuesday, October 1, the Chicago Public Library will eliminate overdue fines for all CPL-owned items currently in circulation, per an announcement from Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office. The mayor's office said the move is meant remove barriers to basic library access especially for youth and low-income patrons. "Like too many Chicagoans, I know what it is like to grow up in financially-challenging circumstances and understand what it is like to be just one bill or one mistake away from crushing debt," said Mayor...

    The story has invited more ridicule than sympathy: an Australian couple has been arrested in Iran after only traveling there in the first place to “try to break the stigma around travelling to countries which get a bad wrap [sic] in the media.” (snip) the responsibility for their plight lies not just with the Islamic Republic of Iran or ISIS, but also with the Leftist world in which they moved and lived. The Left’s leaders constructed a fantasy world, because Leftist ideas are dead on the drawing board without it. In this fantasy world, Islam is peace. Borders and nation-states...

    ...“We just heard from NASCAR on a number of gun-related ads and unfortunately, due to a gradual shift in NASCAR’s position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed—especially those that are depicted as assault-style rifles/sniper rifles. NASCAR is still open to some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes.” Consider this, even if your audience was split 50-50 as to the issue of the Second Amendment, why would you intentionally alienate half of your base? Let’s take it to an extreme. What organization wants to intentionally anger even 10 percent of its base? I am sure much...

    Being simultaneously comical and tragic, perhaps nothing reflects our descent into Idiocracy more than millennials who’ll insist their misspellings of words are correct. Just yesterday I read an eyebrow-raising story about this that was quite timely, as I’d experienced millennial spelling moronity just the day prior. My case involved a leftist who emailed me with some deep, substantive criticism: He said I was “insane,” “nuttier than a fruitcake” and “f*****g” nuts.” I responded to him. While I generally don’t play the spelling Nazi, leftists’ characteristic superciliousness inspired me to mention to him, kindly, that he’d written “you’re” as “your” three...

    Many gun magazines have their flavor of gun bunnies showcasing inside the calendars, AR girls, etc.. Here's our short list of close-call gun accidents in the hot girl gun category. Sure, real gun folks often have better videos, but the hot girls sometimes wear bikinis. These girls simply can't handle a weapon, making them probably not the safest hands for a firearm to be in. There are many gun bunny FAILs out there in the wild internet. The girls on this list probably wish they didn't have someone posting these mishaps on social media, or probably hoped that they'd be...

    CNN is reportedly set to impose a “net 90” payment term on freelance employees beginning in June, meaning the company’s freelancers will be paid just once every three months. “In a blow to their financial stability, CNN sent a letter to several of the network’s freelancers this week, extending their payment terms to net 90 (payment 90 days after invoice). The move has met with significant blowback. “Net 90 is NOT a reasonable payment term for people who must pay rent every 30 days,” Freelancers Union Executive Director Caitlin Pierce wrote on Thursday. “CNN is effectively asking freelancers to finance...
