    “Trump's father, Fred Trump, was arrested after a KKK riot in Queens, New York, in 1927.” (Newsweek, 1/15/18.)“In 1927, Donald Trump’s Father was arrested after a Klan Riot in Queens.” Washington Post (2/29/16.)(Turns out, the “KKK riot” was in fact a Memorial Day Parade in which a few Klan members—minus robes and hoods—participated. And Fred Trump was not among those, as clarified by the Washington Examiner.)  Nonetheless, it appears that the mainstream media regards the political associations of a U.S. president (or U.S. Presidential candidate’s) parent—however brief, tenuous, ancient or bogus-- of enormous import. No?Fine. Then let’s apply the same...

    A group of right-wing activists filed a "formal complaint" with the New Castle Police Department, in New York, this weekend calling for criminal charges to be brought against a notable area resident: former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton. Members from the Equal Justice Tour, a group of radical right-wing activists advocating for the arrest of Clinton, marched to the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate's local police department near her home in Chappaqua on Saturday to drop off the complaint documents with officers. A New Castle Police Department officer confirmed to Newsweek their arrival at roughly 2:30 p.m. local time. A...

    I don't get why Iran would attack its trading partner while the president of Japan is in Tehran on a peace mission. Now who would want the US to attack Iran? "on Monday, a former Iranian ambassador and Foreign Ministry spokesperson said both the U.S. and Israel may have been involved in last week's attacks, which he claimed were designed to undermine Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo's visit to Iran."

    Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg did his best Friday night to ignore a small but vocal group of protesters who yelled anti-gay slurs and told him to "repent" during a speech in Dallas, Texas. Buttigieg, the openly gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was speaking at an event for the Dallas County Democratic Party when he was interrupted several times by a handful of protesters who hurled, among other anti-gay remarks, "marriage is between a man and a woman" and "what about the babies?" Part of the interruption was caught on video by CNN reporter DJ Judd. Rather than confront the...

    Climate change caused by humans could have caused droughts as far back as 1900, according to a study. Scientists looked at data on the climate, as well as on tree rings dating back up to 900 years, giving an insight into moisture levels in soil over a long period of time. In research published in the journal Nature, the team showed that as the amount of greenhouse gasses pumped into the atmosphere rose following the industrial revolution, droughts spiked between 1900 and 1949. “The human consequences of this, particularly drying over large parts of North America and Eurasia, are likely...

    ‘GOD DOESN’T HAVE A POLITICAL PARTY’ Appearing as the nightcap for CNN's five-part Town Hall segment on Monday, 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg addressed concerns over his lack of political experience, his age and his views on how faith can be used to unite Christians from all political spectrums. Buttigieg, who is the current mayor of South Bend, Indiana, talked about his faith at the end of the hour-long question and answer session. "You've talked opening about your strong Christian faith, as well as your identity as a happily-married gay man. I myself am a bi-sexual Christian woman," Harvard freshman...

"I got a call at 11 o'clock. My mom said, 'Well, Dad's not feeling well—he really can't stand,'" Tendler's son, Walter, recalled. "Within a couple of hours...

    New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to defend herself against claims promoted by Donald Trump, Jr. and others that she changes her accent to pander to minority audiences. In a string of Saturday evening tweets, the first-term Democrat wrote that her habit of "code-switching" was informed by years of navigating professional and social environments as a woman of color. "Next time you‘re told straight hair is 'unprofessional' and that speaking like your parents do is 'uneducated,' then you can complain about code-switching," she wrote, referring to the practice of changing speech patterns based on environment.

    Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday called Fox News “AOC TMZ” and blamed the conservative network for her poor favorability rating in a new poll. A Gallup poll released Friday showed that more Americans, 41 percent, viewed her unfavorably than favorably (31 percent). Her unfavorably rating climbed up from 26 percent in September, while her favorability rating also increased from 24 percent, meaning her net favorability dropped from -2 percentage points to -10 percentage points. Ocasio-Cortez responded by tweeting that she has net favorable ratings from women, people ages 18 to 34 and people who are not white. “If you...

    NYU Psychology professor Eric Knowles and doctoral student Sarah DiMuccio queried 300 men on Amazon's crowdsourcing platform Mechanical Turk to discover whether they had or would search for terms such as "erectile dysfunction," "how to get girls," "penis enlargement," "testosterone," and "Viagra," among others. They discovered a high level of concern about masculinity "was strongly associated with interest in these search topics." They then correlated the geopgrahic dispersion of these search topics in 2016 with how such areas voted in that year's election, finding "that support for Trump in the 2016 election was higher in areas that had more searches...
