    Vice President Pence arrived in Aspen, Colo., this week for a holiday vacation — but not without encountering a silent protest from his neighbors in the liberal ski resort town. “Make America Gay Again,” reads a rainbow banner posted on the stone pillar at the end of the driveway of the home where Pence and his wife, Karen, are staying. A dispatcher with the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office referred The Washington Post to the White House press office Saturday, but Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione told the Aspen Times that Pence’s next-door neighbors posted the banner shortly after the vice president...

    Democratic Kentucky state Sen. Julian Carroll was officially removed from his position as minority whip Sunday following a local news report that alleged the lawmaker groped a male staffer in 2005. The Senate Democratic caucus formally voted to remove Carroll and called for him to resign his office, according to a Spectrum News report. “In light of recent media reports, the Senate Democratic Caucus has voted to remove Senator Carroll from his leadership position as minority whip,” Senate Democrats said in a statement. “The Senate Democratic Caucus calls on Senator Carroll to resign his Kentucky State Senate seat, immediately.” The...

    Claremont College fired its new director for the Queer Resource Center within days of his employment for controversial tweets, and now “student affairs professionals” are crawling out of the woodwork to condemn his termination as “an act of violence.” Dr. Jonathan Higgins was initially welcomed aboard with a warm reception – divisive tweets and all, by those doing the hiring – and was introduced as “a motivational speaker dedicated to empowering all LGBTQ students with an emphasis on students of color,” by a dean at a cluster college. However, within 72 hours of his employment, his tweets had made the...

    Influential Sen. Lindsey Graham said he expects May hearings into allegations former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice ordered the unmasking of names of associates of President Donald Trump and compared her denials to the purposefully wrong claims that the Benghazi embassy attack in 2012 was caused by an anti-Islam video. The South Carolina senator said, "I'm not going to prejudge. But I know, do know during Benghazi which you're well aware of, that she started the storyline of a protest caused by a video. It was always a terrorist attack on day one. They manipulated the information, I think...

    What comes up must always come down. Fresh off the heels of her brand’s record-breaking sales month of February, Ivanka Trump’s company was just slapped with a major class-action “unfair competition” lawsuit. In case you need a recap: The first daugther’s lifestyle brand took a major nosedive in January. It all started when Nordstrom announced it would not be renewing its contract with Ivanka. Neiman Marcus, Gilt, ShopStyle, and the Home Shopping Network, quickly followed suit. Meanwhile, TJMaxx and Marshalls instructed employees to trash all Ivanka Trump signage and mix her merchandise into the racks. And Sears and Kmart said...

    Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Sen. Tim Kaine says that he changed his mind on the issue of same sex marriage, because when the Virginia legislature tried recognizing that a “marriage is between a man and woman” they were “doing it to try to make the state a hostile place.” “You know, on marriage equality I got tell you, in my first year as governor my legislature decided to put one of those same-sex — marriage is between a man and woman issues on the ballot and the more I listened to the reason they wanted to do it the more...

    JCPenney, faced with unexpected light sales in mid-April, slashed payroll, froze overtime and took other drastic cost-cutting steps in an attempt to protect its bottom line, The Post has learned. As the end of its first fiscal quarter approached, the mid-priced department store told store managers to take the emergency measures because the chain faced “an expense challenge,” according to an internal memo obtained by The Post. “We have an expense challenge for the month of April and are asking all stores to do their fair share by closely monitoring all expenses,” the memo said. Employees were stunned when their...

His funding goal is $25,000, according to the page.

His Go Fund Me page gets political, saying that he rushed the stage “not to...

    ( -- Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion...

    The National Rifle Association, the country's most influential gun-rights supporter, is challenging President Obama's new plan to use his presidential power to tighten firearms laws, calling it a "political stunt" that fails to increase public safety. President Obama said this weekend that he'll meet Monday with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss his "options” toward curbing gun violence, after ordering his White House team several months ago to identify "new actions" that he can take. The president also said that he's taking action because Congress has failed to act. He is expected to use so-called executive orders to tighten federal...

    Ironically, this claim [“the body of Christ is queer”], by an ordained bi-sexual female, Layton E. Williams, in the PC(USA), appeared the day before the decision of the USSC to legalize same sex marriage in all fifty states. Culturally, this legal decision represents an historic moment for the United States. The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time...
