    When Apple released its iPhone XS line, with screens that range from 5.8 inches to 6.5 inches, they became the company’s largest phones yet. But the big screens have triggered a backlash from women who say the device is too large for the average female hand. “Women like me with small hands who need the most secure phone for safety reasons are stuck with something they can’t hold and constantly risk dropping,” tweeted sociology professor Zeynep Tufekci, who teaches at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “Some people like the bigger phones. Fine. Keep an alternative for the...

    Ever wonder why the democrats operate in lockstep, why not a single democrat has decried Diane Feinstein and her Judiciary colleagues' militant tactics? Because Chuck Schumer has repopulated the Senate with visceral far-leftists. Here's the rundown. Brown (OH) - 2006 Cardin (MD) - 2006 Casey (PA) - 2006 Gillibrand (NY) - 2006 Kaine (VA) - 2006 Klobuchar (MN) - 2006 McCaskill (MO) - 2006 Menendez (NJ) - 2006 Sanders (VT) - 2006 Tester (MT) - 2006 Bennett (CO) - 2008 Merkley (OR) - 2008 Shaheen (NH) - 2008 Udall (NM) - 2008 Warner (VA) - 2008 Blumenthal (CT) - 2010...

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says Republicans on the Judiciary Committee can’t be trusted to conduct an impartial review of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer says voting on Kavanaugh scheduled for this week must be delayed so these “serious and credible” allegations can be investigated by the FBI.

    Indicted GOP Rep. Chris Collins will remain on the ballot in November, The Buffalo News reported Monday, setting up a potentially competitive race in a deep red district in Western New York. Collins will face Democratic Grand Island Town Supervisor Nate McMurray in November in a district President Donald Trump won by 24 points in 2016. Collins’ recent indictment for charges relating to insider trading have shaken up the race. Collins initially said he would run for re-election, but reversed course under pressure from local and national party leaders.

    As many have said about socialism, the issue is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. Socialist and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is bound for Congress on an agenda that will cost trillions. $40+ trillion in the first decade alone for her left wing goodies of free college and single-payer health care, those are the two big items. In three decades, the price tag for American democratic socialism will hit $218 trillion. But remember, socialists, like the pigs in Animal Farm, they don’t have to sacrifice a thing. Is Ocasio-Cortez more of a limousine liberal than a...

    Vanecko and Davis. Their firm made millions in fees even as retirement plans for teachers, cops, other Chicago city workers suffered big losses. A dozen years ago, five financially strapped city of Chicago pension funds invested $68 million in a shaky real estate deal put together by a former boss of resident Barack Obama and a nephew of Mayor Richard M. Daley. It was a high-risk investment. Allison S. Davis — who once headed a small Chicago law firm that gave Obama his first job out of Harvard Law School — and Daley nephew Robert G. Vanecko even warned in...

    New York City is the most recent city to allow a third gender option on birth certificates for persons who do not identify as male or female. They will be classified as gender X. NBC News reported that the city council and board of health in the nation's largest city voted Wednesday to include the third gender marker on birth certificates as of Jan. 1, 2019. The new policy will no longer require persons who identify as such to provide a note from a doctor or a health care provider's affidavit in order to make such a change. New York...

    The socialist insurgency against establishment Democrats in New York emerged triumphant as no less than 6 far left candidates defeated establishment Democrats in races for the state senate. New York Times: Years of anger at a group of Democratic state senators who had collaborated with Republicans boiled over on Thursday, as primary voters ousted nearly all of them in favor of challengers who had called them traitors and sham progressives. The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the...

    Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. The investigative book by the veteran Watergate reporter, who has written books about every administration dating back to President Nixon, was powered by excerpts published before the book's public release Tuesday and President Trump's public rejection of it. Trump called the book "a con on the public" consisting of quotes that are "made up frauds" designed to boost Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm...
