  • Survey Finds People Who Identify as Left-Wing More Likely to Have Been Diagnosed With a Mental Illness

    The data speaks for itself. A new survey of more than 8,000 people has found that those who identify with left-wing political beliefs are more likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness. Ann Coulter’s “liberalism is a mental disorder” catchphrase has become something of a clichéd meme, but the data appears to support it. Carried out by Slate Star Codex, the online survey collected a wealth of data from respondents about their education, demographic, lifestyle and political views. The results show that people who occupy the farther left end of the political spectrum are more likely to have...
  • MSM’s ‘Bombshell’ video of a Parnas-Fruman-Trump ‘meeting’ helps Trump

    The MSM released the full 90-minute tape of the President’s ‘meeting’ at the Trump Hotel with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman in attendance. The video is not of a meeting as the MSM portrayed it. It’s a casual, private dinner with light conversation. In fact, it’s amazingly uneventful. The President listened, asked questions, and joked. This appears to be a fundraiser with donors. It’s harmless and Trump didn’t say anything he doesn’t always say. He didn’t even know what business all these people are in and had to ask during the conversations. He might well not remember Parnas and Fruman....
  • Donald Trump blames Barack Obama for giving Iran the cash to buy missiles flung at U.S. bases—as he offers to 'embrace peace' and claims Tehran is 'standing down' but warns of 'hypersonic weapons' and 'lethal and fast' attacks

    Donald Trump blamed Barack Obama on Wednesday for supplying Iran with the money to purchase a torrent of missiles fired at American military positions Tuesday night. “The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” he said, citing $150 billion in frozen assets that the previous president released and $1.5 billion flown by the U.S. to Tehran. […] “Our missiles are big, powerful, accurate, lethal and fast,” he said, sending a warning in nearly the same breath as an olive branch. “Under construction are many hypersonic missiles,”...
  • Schumer: Newly revealed emails a 'devastating blow' to McConnell's impeachment trial plans

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) seized on newly released emails surrounding President Trump's decision to delay aid to Ukraine, arguing they underscored the need for witnesses and documents as part of an impeachment trial. “The newly-revealed unredacted emails are a devastating blow to Senator McConnell’s push to have a trial without the documents and witnesses we’ve requested," Schumer said in a statement. "These emails further expose the serious concerns raised by Trump administration officials about the propriety and legality of the president’s decision to cut off aid to Ukraine to benefit himself," he added. Schumer's comments come after Just...

    In a ruling Monday morning, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit denied President Donald Trump’s request for a preliminary injunction protecting him from a grand jury subpoena for his tax returns. The court in an opinion written by Chief Judge Robert Katzmann rejected the notion that the president is immune from all state criminal processes...

    Morning segment on Oklahoma City's KOCO-TV turns inappropriate(Newser) – Things got awkward during a morning show segment on Oklahoma City's KOCO-TV Thursday as co-hosts Alex Housden and Jason Hackett chatted about a gorilla at the Oklahoma City Zoo. "Kind of looks like you," Housden said jokingly to Hackett at the end of the segment. "He kind of does, actually, yeah," Hackett replied in a tone USA Today describes as "hesitant." He laughed, too, notes Jay Connor at The Root: "The kind of laughter that black folks in white spaces know all too well. The kind of laughter that dissuades our...

    President Donald Trump has repeatedly refused to accept any responsibility for inciting violence in American communities, dismissing critics who have pointed to his rhetoric as a potential source of inspiration for some citizens acting on even long-held beliefs of bigotry and hate. "I think my rhetoric brings people together," he said last week, four days after a 21-year-old allegedly posted an anti-immigrant screed online and then allegedly opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 22 and injuring dozens of others. But a nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 36 criminal cases where Trump...

    A gun store in Texas hosted a back-to-school firearms sale just weeks after a mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart killed 22 people. Boyert Shooting Center, in Katy, outside Houston, posted a sign on its marquee earlier this month that said: "Back to school sale August 13th-18th Up to 50% off firearms." The gun range also promoted the sale on Facebook, highlighting a $999.99 discount on a semi-automatic .50 caliber gun that the shop called a "beast of a rifle." Local resident Michelle Simons, who took a photo of the range's sign, told KTRK she thought the sign was...

    The four progressive congresswomen who are currently in a nasty feud with President Trump offered a not-so-subtle warning to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, the next time she "singles them out." Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass, often referred to as "The Squad," sat down with "CBS This Morning" host Gayle King on Tuesday as the House voted to formally condemn Trump over tweets that Democrats labeled as racist. King asked the congresswomen if they've been in contact with Pelosi. "Our teams are in communication," Ocasio-Cortez responded. "But shouldn't you be meeting...

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at Hillary Clinton when it comes to her husband's escapades. "The kitchen sink," in this case, is Jeffery Epstein's “Sex Slave Island” and President Bill Clinton’s ties to it. Why wouldn’t Trump use this ammo? The answer is simple: Trump himself has ties to Epstein, the billionaire Democratic donor and convicted pedophile known for having under-age sex slaves on his private plane and what the media calls "Sex Slave Island." Here are seven connections between Trump and Epstein's sex slave endeavors that you need to know about:...

    The Justice Department has revealed the name of a former U.S. attorney accused of misconduct after Buzzfeed News successfully sued for disclosure of his identity. The Justice Department announced in May 2017 that the since-retired attorney had an affair with a subordinate, created a hostile work environment and possibly violated department policy on sexual harassment. A federal judge ruled in March that public interest superseded government officials’ right to privacy, forcing the Justice Department to disclose last week the attorney in question was Stephen Wigginton, who served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois from 2010 to 2015....

    The Senate passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Thursday, which serves as one of the final steps for Congress to pass historic tax legislation. The Senate passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 51-49, almost entirely along party lines, with Vice President Mike Pence presiding over the vote. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) voted against the bill, and 48 Democrats voted against the tax reform legislation as well. Reluctant Republican senators such as Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) voted for the bill after last minute changes were made. Flake received a commitment from Republican leadership and the...

    Around the time that President Clinton got into hot water with Monica Lewinsky in 1998, wife Hillary coined the phrase "vast right-wing conspiracy" to denote the supposed nefarious, political forces that were determined to bring her husband down and cause him to leave office. Personally I think Hillary was a bit off in her assessment of Clinton's enemies (personally I think Bill Clinton was his own worse enemy)but 13 years later I think we do have a vast right-wing conspiracy set up to derail the Presidential ambitions of Sarah Palin. In the past I focused more on the Left and...

    The man who likely has done more than anyone to put the libertarian philosophy of freedom and small government on the political agenda probably will make another run for the presidency: U.S. Rep. Ron Paul. Paul is always upbeat, but lately he's had more reason to be, as he sees libertarian ideas bubbling up from the grass roots. "People outside of Washington are waking up," he told me, "and they're getting the attention of a few in Washington." Paul has been in Congress more than 20 years, and much of that time he's played a lonely role, often being the...

    And you thought this weekend was going to be all about Donald Trump! Probably only one other lightening-rod VIP could have stolen the mogul’s buzz in the pro-am zeitgeist tournament known as the White House Correspondents’ weekend, and darned if she didn’t pull a surprise appearance. You betcha, she did. Sarah Palin walked into the Georgetown home of Mark Ein shortly before noon Saturday to dazzle a brunch crowd of Washington insiders and visiting luminaries. Black bell-sleeved summer dress, shiny hair. She and a clean-shaven Todd Palin posed for a few photos with hosts Wendi Murdoch and Susan Axelrod, then...
