    Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford announced Sunday that he is running for president as a Republican, becoming the latest to challenge President Trump in the GOP primaries. Sanford said the Republican Party is facing an identity crisis, and he wants the GOP to take a look at itself and do some soul searching. “I think we have to have a conversation about what it means to be a Republican,” Sanford told “Fox News Sunday,” claiming the party “has lost our way.” Sanford specifically made reference to the debt, deficit and government spending. Other conservatives expressed concern about these issues...

  • The Crazy Was On Full Display In The Democratic Debate

    On today’s show we dig into the first night of round two of the Democratic Party’s presidential debates. From the craziness of Marianne Williamson to semi-sane voices who warned about the party going so far left that they lose, the debate had it all. If you were looking to have free stuff promised to you, last night’s debate was for you. Free health care, free college, free entry into the country … the only “free” that didn’t warrant a mention from anyone on the stage was individual freedom. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren clashed with Rep. Tim Ryan and...

    You may perhaps have heard about the preteen drag performer who goes by the name “Desmond Is Amazing.” Desmond Napoles is an online sensation who’s appeared on “Good Morning America” and has become a cause célčbre among the LGBT community. In January, a bit of a cultural scuffle happened that may have gone under the radar. Desmond, who is managed by his parents, appeared in December, at the age of 11, at the 3 Dollar Bill, a New York City establishment that is either a “gay bar” (the description used by The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher) or “a queer, multifunctional...
  • Men are in trouble. ‘Incels’ are proof.

    The Internet has enabled the flourishing of countless subcultures, from the harmless to the less so. Lately, one of the latter groups has begun to break into the mainstream: the “incels.” “Incel” is short for “involuntary celibate,” and as their self-imposed name implies, these mostly young men have come to define themselves by their inability to find a sexual or romantic partner. Men who identify as being #ForeverAlone have gathered online in forums such as Reddit to trade stories of woe. These communities tend to be self-reinforcing. Members believe that their looks or personal traits have consigned them to lifelong...

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night suggested that if the Justice Department was going to let Russia get away with interfering in the 2016 presidential election, it might be OK if one of the 2020 Democratic candidates enlisted China for help. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate offered a seemingly tongue-in-cheek hypothetical to Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show. “Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said, you know, the only other adversary of ours who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China,” Clinton told Maddow. “So why...

    Forecasting Brexit is still the same old mug’s game it always was. But the probability of a no-deal Brexit has risen dramatically since last week’s summit of European leaders. That scenario can be avoided, for now, if Theresa May were to be ousted as prime minister. The EU would always accept a request for a further delay in such a situation. But it would still insist Britain organise European Parliament elections on May 23 — the UK cannot be allowed to undermine the legitimacy of the European Parliament while it is negotiating its way out. And a new leader would...
  • Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel won’t go quietly

    Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary — whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court. Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSO’s response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

    Former CIA Director John Brennan said that he didn’t mean President Trump had committed treason when he called Trump’s press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin “nothing short of treason." Brennan clarified the comment during an interview Friday, after MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said Brennan said the press conference “rose to treason.” The former CIA director disputed the characterization of his "treason" tweet, saying that he felt compelled to make the comment after Trump sided with Putin’s denials of Russian election interference. “And for Mr. Trump to so cavalierly so dismiss that, yes, sometimes my Irish comes out and in my...

    The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy. FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russia’s central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said. It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections. It’s unclear how long the Torshin inquiry has been ongoing, but the news comes...

    The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Wednesday on a sweeping proposal to speed the deployment of self-driving cars without human controls and bar states from blocking autonomous vehicles, congressional aides said. The bill, which was passed unanimously by a House panel in July, would allow automakers to obtain exemptions to deploy up to 25,000 vehicles without meeting existing auto safety standards in the first year, a cap that would rise to 100,000 vehicles annually over three years. Automakers and technology companies including General Motors Co and Alphabet Inc’s’ self-driving unit Waymo have been pushing for new federal rules making...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Donald Trump’s bitter rival early on in the 2016 presidential campaign, recently said one prediction he made about the then-candidate has proven true. “When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president. Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now.” Bush made the comments at the SALT hedge-fund conference in Las Vegas Friday and elaborated on his conclusion.

    “Pathetic.” “Arrogance.” Those were the key words that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski used on today’s Morning Joe, respectively, to describe Hillary Clinton’s excuse-making for her loss. Interviewed by Christiane Amanpour yesterday, Hillary paid lip service to her own mistakes, but ultimately concluded that “the reason I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days,” citing the Comey letter and Wikileaks. Scarborough: “So who’s going to say it on the set? Who’s going to say it? Anybody going to say it? That was pathetic. I’ll say it. Let me go out, I’ll get killed.” Mika went...

    Failing NY Times ^ | 4/7/17 | Scott Obamacultist Shane
    When the Syrian government carried out a gruesome chemical attack on civilians this week, many people had a question: Didn’t the Obama administration, working with Russia and international experts, destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stocks in 2014? In his State of the Union address that year, President Barack Obama declared, “American diplomacy, backed by the threat of force, is why Syria’s chemical weapons are being eliminated.” Months later, in July, on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Secretary of State John Kerry essentially declared the mission accomplished: “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out.”

    Malia Obama Just Made Windbreakers Cool Again The teen has officially mastered '90s style. Despite being born in 1998, Malia Obama has seamlessly mastered the art of '90s style since moving to New York. The former First Daughter has been spotted around the city for her internship in high-waisted denim, Timberlands and lace-up combat boots but over the weekend, she took her penchant for the '90s to a new level. Obama stepped out in one of the most memorable trends of the '90s: a bright color-blocked windbreaker. The 18-year-old styled the retro outerwear with a pair of vintage-cut dad jeans...
