  • Over 150 High Schoolers Stage Walkout Protest After Trans Student Seeks to Use Girls' Locker Room

    Over 150 students at a Missouri high school walked out of class Monday and staged a two-hour protest to voice their disapproval with a transgender student's request to use the girls' locker room to change for her physical education class. After dozens of parents showed up to a school board meeting at Hillsboro High School last Thursday to discuss their concerns over a senior transgender student's desire to use the girls' locker room and bathrooms, students and parents took to the school's parking lot on Monday to tell administrators they won't allow girls' privacy rights to be infringed upon to...
  • Many Hispanics want Pope Francis to address Trump on immigration

    Karla Perez loves Pope Francis. Like her, he’s a native Spanish speaker. He is also the first Latin American to lead the Catholic Church, and he talks easily about soccer and prefers public buses to luxury cars. Most of all, though, Perez loves this pope because he has made better treatment of immigrants a centerpiece of his two-year-old papacy. She hopes, as do many of the nearly 30 million Hispanic Catholics in the country, that this month’s visit by Francis will change the tone of the nation’s divisive immigration debate. “I’m an immigrant myself, and I hear politicians saying they...
  • McConnell to conservatives: Look, we don’t have the numbers in Senate to defund Planned Parenthood

    We do have the numbers to force a shutdown, but McConnell’s already ruled that out. I’m going to look on the bright side here: At least this guy’s trying to spare us another dismal episode of GOP failure theater. If we had a majority in the Senate that was prepared to dig in and have this fight on principle, no matter what the polls say, it’d be worth considering a shutdown. Obama might blink if it lasted long enough. Because we have the majority we have, there’s really no point. It’ll play out just as lefty Bill Scher says...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has responded to a recent report that House Speaker John Boehner called him a "jackass" during a Colorado fundraiser. The Daily Caller quoted two attendees of an event last week where the Ohio lawmaker purportedly joked that Cruz's presidential campaign kept "that jackass" off Capitol Hill. But Cruz brushed off the criticism, saying that Americans are tired of politicians “bickering like schoolyard children.” "The speaker is entitled to express whatever views he likes, but I’m not going to respond in kind,” Cruz said in an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, according to Politico. “And I...

    In what could be the largest natural gas discovery in history, Italian energy company Eni says it has unearthed a "supergiant" gas field in the Mediterranean Sea covering about 40 square miles. The gas field could hold a potential of 30 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Eni says that's the energy equivalent of about 5.5 billion barrels of oil. The company won't know the field's true size until it begins to develop it. Found in the deep waters off the northern coast of Egypt, Eni claims the gas field to be the largest ever in the Mediterranean and possibly...

    It hasn’t been a good month for the EPA. A few weeks ago, EPA engineers accidentally breached a mine dam and polluted waterways in southwestern Colorado and northern New Mexico, after having bullied the landowner to access the mine. Ironically, their new rule that expands their authority by redefining the legal term “navigable waterways” was about to take effect tomorrow. A federal judge in North Dakota shut that down this afternoon, ruling that the EPA had exceeded its authority and jurisdiction from Congress: A federal judge in North Dakota on Thursday blocked a new Obama administration rule that would...

    Burger King has offered McDonald’s a golden opportunity to come together and make one burger to rule them all — in the name of world peace, of course.In full-page ads running Wednesday in The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune – the hometown paper of the Illinois-based McDonald’s – the fast-food chain is proposing the “McWhopper,” a hybrid of each company’s signature Big Mac and Whopper burgers that will be sold for one day in one pop-up store in one city.That city, Burger King is proposing, would be Atlanta, a meeting point between both company’s headquarters.

    I've already written about the Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume before, but that was before we got a chance to see the actual costume! For just a moment, look at what the LGBT reaction shows about the radical Left. After educating us that men can "feel" like a woman at any time in their lives you would think they would support such an effort on Halloween. Think of it as a one-night trial run! But liberals are incensed even by the very description of the product: The Jenner costume comes with a white padded top, matching shorts, a brunette wig,...

    Judicial Watch has uncovered a secret email account linked to official business that was used by Lois Lerner, the IRS executive who took the Fifth Amendment and retired to an estimated $100,000 a year retirement income. The effect of using a secret email account – in this case, Lerner’s email account was in the name of Toby Miles – is to prevent Freedom of Information Act inquiries from uncovering the official information contained in the secret emails. In toehr words, it is a way for a government official to deny the public its right to see how the government...

    Unconfirmed reports suggest that two people in Toronto have killed themselves over the Ashley Madison hack, local police said in a briefing providing details about the beginning of the leak. “As of this morning, we have two unconfirmed reports of suicides that are associated because of the leak of Ashley Madison customers’ profiles,” Toronto police service staff superintendent Bryce Evans said at a press conference on Monday. Evans said the nature of the dating site for married people was “of no interest to us as the investigative teams”. Security analyst Brian Krebs said last week he feared exactly that outcome....

    John McAfee may no longer be associated with the famous security company he founded, but he still writes about and consults on the topic, and he now claims to know the Ashley Madison “hack” was, in fact, data stolen by a “lone female who worked for Avid Life Media.” His argument relies on two separate bits of evidence. First, McAfee says the files found in the leaked database contain some peculiarities that he wouldn’t expect a hacker to normally access. “The data contains actual MySQL database dumps,” he says, adding “this is not just someone copying a table and making...

    The e-mail server used by Hillary Rodham Clinton when she served as secretary of state was turned over to the FBI late Wednesday afternoon from a private data center in New Jersey, according to an attorney familiar with the transfer. “It was picked up about 4 p.m.,” said Barbara J. Wells, a Denver lawyer who represents Platte River Networks Inc., a small computer services firm that has managed the Clintons’ private e-mail system since mid-2013. Wells said her client was contacted by the FBI, which expressed interest in obtaining the old server. The FBI did not have a search warrant...

    As pressure builds on Hillary Clinton to explain her official use of personal email while serving as secretary of state, she faced new complications Tuesday. It was disclosed her top aides are being drawn into a burgeoning federal inquiry and that two emails on her private account have been classified as “Top Secret.” The inspector general for the Intelligence Community notified senior members of Congress that two of four classified emails discovered on the server Clinton maintained at her New York home contained material deemed to be in one of the highest security classifications - more sensitive than previously known....

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — After more than a year of waiting the first piece of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been found. Experts have confirmed that the debris found on Reunion Island last week was that of Malaysian Airlines flight 370 that went missing last year, Malaysia's prime minister said Wednesday. "It is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you that an international team of experts has conclusively confirmed that the aircraft debris ... is indeed MH370," Prime Minister Najib Razak told reporters. Malaysian Airlines published a press release shortly after the debris was confirmed: ______________________________________________________ Malaysia...

    I think I speak for all of us when I say, “Who’s Kelly Osbourne?”The best part of this is an offended Rosie Perez apologizing to Osbourne after being reminded that they should focus on the Common Enemy. Perez clarified the point Collins was trying to make, saying, “There are a lot of Latinos here in this country that do agree that the immigration problem is a problem and it does need to be addressed and it does need to be fixed. But [Trump] making those comments [about rapists]—those racist comments—does not help.”“If you kick every Latino out of this...

    He may fashion himself conservative, but there's nothing traditional about the way Ted Cruz eats his bacon. In a short online video produced by IJReview titled "Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz," the 2016 candidate demonstrates that happiness — at least at breakfast time — is literally a warm gun. "There are few things I enjoy more than on the weekend cooking breakfast with the family," the Texas Republican senator says in the video. "Of course, in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks." A video montage then plays showing Cruz, an ardent supporter of gun rights,...

    Puerto Rico missed its first debt repayment on Monday, the first time the troubled US commonwealth has failed to pay its bills. The island paid just $628,000 toward a $58m debt due to creditors of its Public Finance Corporation. While the default was expected, it is likely to worsen the financial situation for the island as it struggles with debts estimated at $72bn.

Dan is the CEO of Seattle-based credit card payments processing firm Gravity Payments, and three months ago, he did a funny thing. After talking with a friend who confessed to having difficulties making student loan payments and rent each month on an annual salary of $40,000, Dan decided to set a $70,000 per year pay floor at Gravity. Dan was not, The New York Times says, looking to insert himself into "the current political clamor over low wages or the growing gap between rich and poor." All he wanted to do was improve the lives of...
