    So, did the progressive social media mob force a New York Times reporter to retract her statements about the left wing Antifa crowd that showed up in Charlottesville over the weekend? White nationalists descended into the city to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The day was marked with scores of people injured in skirmishes between the far right and far left. One person was killed when a 20-year-old Ohio man named James Alex Fields, Jr. plowed into counter protesters. He injured an additional 19 people in the attack. The only thing Sheryl Gay Stolberg noted was...

    Hollywood writer Bret Easton Ellis, author of “Less Than Zero,” “American Psycho” and “The Rules of Attraction,” has a question. “Is the Left F---ing NUTS?" The answer, of course, is yes, but in the case of Ellis that insanity came in the form of attacks on Ellis when he had dinner over the weekend with a group of liberal Hollywood elites. On July 16 Ellis tweeted: “Defending the American voter I'm yelled at in Sunset Tower for being a Trump apologist and colluding with Russia. Is the Left f---ing NUTS?” He then followed up: “Another dinner with the Hollywood liberal...

    A man is arrested for allegedly making threatening comments towards an Arizona senator’s staff. Authorities charged 59-year-old Mark Prichard with criminal trespassing as well as threats and intimidation. Speaking at Senator Jeff Flake’s Tuscon, Arizona office, Prichard referenced the shooting of House Whip Steve Scalise. He claimed liberals will solve the quote “republican problem” with better aim. Another man, 70-year-old Patrick Diehl, was also charged after allegedly trying to force his way into the Senator’s office Senator Flake was on the baseball field the day Scalise was shot, but not injured. Bail has not yet been set for the two...

    President Trump resisted some intense lobbying by leaders of other industrialized nations Friday to back the Paris climate-change agreement at a G-7 summit in Sicily, Italy. After hours of discussions, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni told reporters that the U.S. position on the Paris accord remains an “open question.” “All others have confirmed their total agreement on the accord,” he said of the leaders of Germany, Japan, Italy, Britain, France and Canada. Former President Barack Obama signed the Paris agreement to limit carbon emissions in 2015, but Mr. Trump is weighing a move to pull the U.S. out of the...

    Would you be friends with a transgender person? A full 27 percent of American adults on a recent YouGov survey said no. Even fewer—less than 20 percent—said they would be open to dating a transgender person. The disappointing but unsurprising results reveal a sad truth about the transgender rights movement: Cultural acceptance has tended to lag behind formal recognition.

    James Comey, the ousted FBI director, once wore a dark blue suit to a White House gathering to blend in with the curtains because he hoped that would help him avoid being called out by President Donald Trump, The New York Times reported Thursday. Benjamin Wittes — a friend of Comey's, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, and the editor-in-chief of Lawfare — told The Times about the incident, which he said Comey described to him. "He thought he had gotten through and not been noticed or singled out and that he was going to get away without an...

    Catholics participating in the Peoples Climate Movement march in the nation’s capital will be able to pray at a Mass and visit their representatives on Capitol Hill as part of two days of activities. March organizers are expecting hundreds of thousands of people to travel to Washington April 29 in a broad showing of grass-roots support for federal government action in addressing climate change and to oppose the rollback of environmental standards by the administration of President Donald Trump. Catholic organizations are planning to greet hundreds of Catholics as well. The Franciscan Action Network and Interfaith Power & Light of...

    The media is touting a new study claiming global warming could be, at least in part, to blame for the "diabetes epidemic" sweeping the globe. "When it gets warmer, there is higher incidence of diabetes," Lisanne Blauw, a Ph.D. candidate at the Netherlands-based Einthoven Laboratory and the study's lead author, told The Huffington Post Tuesday. "It's important to realize global warming has further effects on our health, not only on the climate," Blauw said.

    A Texas grand jury has decided that a GIF can be just as deadly as a gun or knife. The U.S Department of Justice and a Dallas grand jury issued indictments Monday against John Rayne Rivello, who is accused of intentionally tweeting a Graphic Interchange Format (GIF) animation designed to Newsweek journalist Kurt Eichenwald in order to provoke an epileptic seizure. The grand jury's indictment refers to the GIF as "a deadly weapon," along with a tweet, an "electronic device," and Rivello's hands.

    Lana Del Rey has joined a nationwide occult effort that seeks to remove President Donald Trump from office through the power of witchcraft. On Thursday, Del Rey mysteriously tweeted, "At the stroke of midnight Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23. Ingredients can b found online." While early speculation wondered whether the tweet had something to do with her upcoming LP, those four dates aligned with the lunar calendar's "waning crescent moon ritual dates." Occultists noted that, on those four dates, practitioners of witchcraft would congregate for a mass ritual that would with the hope that their efforts resulted...

    Self-described “serial monogamist” Susan Sarandon recently told a gay website her sexuality was “up for grabs.” “Is your sexuality more or less rigid these days? Basically, should we be welcoming you to the family?” an interviewer with PrideSource.com asked the 70-year-old actress in an interview published Tuesday. “Well, I’m a serial monogamist, so I haven’t really had a large dating career,” Ms. Sarandon answered. “I married Chris Sarandon when I was 20, and that went on for quite a while — each of my relationships have. I haven’t exactly been in the midst of a lot of offers of any...

    Transgender people will no longer be classified as “mentally ill” in Sweden, the country’s main national health authority has announced, in a decision widely criticized as overdue. Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare, or Socialstyrelsen, announced late on Friday that it would no longer automatically apply the diagnosis “gender dysphoria” to transgender patients. “…more than anything, this change has an important symbolic value,’ Kristina Bränd Persson, the organization’s head, said in a press release. “This is a completely reasonable change. Many divisions and categories are obsolete. For us, the decision is uncontroversial. We tend to follow the changes the...

    Food scientists at Cornell University have produced a strain of broccoli that thrives in hot environments, which may make it possible for states with stiflingly hot summers to grow the vegetable. California, where cool coastal fog is perfect for growing standard broccoli, currently produces more than 90 percent of the broccoli grown in the United States. If California were to disappear, what would the American diet be like? Expensive and grainy. California produces a sizable majority of many American fruits, vegetables, and nuts: 99 percent of artichokes, 99 percent of walnuts, 97 percent of kiwis, 97 percent of plums, 95...

    When planning December office parties that coincide with the Christmas season, it is a challenge for event organizers to make celebrations "all-inclusive." Many employers may wish to offer a traditional Christmas or holiday party if they know this approach makes sense for their employees and their organization, notes Mark Kessler, Ph.D., professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies at Texas Woman’s University. However, not all faith traditions have holidays in December, and not everyone identifies with a particular faith tradition. With this in mind, professor Kessler offers two approaches for those who want to make all employees feel included during...

    If you’re looking for a healthy snack, nuts might be the answer. A new study from European researchers in the journal BMC Medicine says eating a handful of nuts a day can cut down on several health risks. Data from more than 800,000 people who ate all kinds of nuts, including hazelnuts, walnuts and peanuts, shows they cut their risk of dying from heart disease by nearly 30 percent and cancer by 15 percent. The risk of premature death was also 22 percent lower for people who ate nuts. “It’s quite a substantial effect for such a small amount of...

    A jealous Russian teenager hacked off the head of his love rival, then took it to show his “distraught” girlfriend to prove his love for her, police have said. The 16-year-old kickboxer is reported to have asked to meet Artyom Shustov, 19, in a park in the eastern Russian city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where the pair got into a furious row. The younger teen accused the older one of forcing himself on his girlfriend, 17, at a party. Shustov insisted the girl had “started pestering him at the party, and he was drunk and could not resist her,” according to Russian...
