  • LGBT Lobbyists Demand ‘Purity of a Queer Relationship’ in ‘Frozen’ Sequel

    According to GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), Disney has a big fat “F” for LGBT representation in their movies – meaning, there haven’t been any gay characters in children’s movies in 2015.  However, since Disney announced there will be a Frozen 2 in the works for 2018, a few frustrated lesbian fans are trying to use the movie to feature an alternative romance for Queen Elsa, a gay character – or in this case – a different kind of “queen.” When a movie includes a song about how "love is an open door," the LGBT lobbyists will...

    Republican presidential candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said he would seek out and deport all the illegal immigrants in the US and that both fellow candidates Donald Trump and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)“would allow those 12 million people to become US citizens” on Monday’s “The O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel. Cruz began by stating [relevant remarks begin around 2:30] that the law should be enforced, and illegal immigrants in the US should be deported. When asked if he would “go look for them” Cruz responded, “Bill, of course you would. That’s what ICE exists...

  • Obama Trying to make Kayla Mueller's Death a Political Triumph for himself

    02/10/2015 9:19:55 AM PST · by SoFloFreeper · 24 replies
    So the news is that local officials in ARIZONA were doing more to get Kayla Mueller released than Team Obama. Now that the girl is gone, Obama is releasing statements of sympathy and pretending like he and Michelle give a damn. Just saw a report on local media that was an obvious attempt to boost Obama's image. My theory is Valerie saw how King Abdullah got a boost when he ACTUALLY DID something, and now wants her man child to be praised. Thoughts?

    House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has some “downright sickening” plans today, according to the campaign arm of the House Democratic Caucus. “This is downright sickening,” the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee emails (signed “Democratic Headquarters”) said in an email today. “Today, House Republicans will vote for Paul Ryan’s Medicare-destroying budget. And guess what Ryan’s doing right after? Here’s what: Hosting a lavish fundraiser in the shadow of the Capitol, hobnobbing with those who will benefit the most from his budget — deep-pocketed millionaires and billionaires.” The message continues with a fundraising pitch. “The ultra-wealthy and their shady special interests...

After his victory his advisors announced that one of his first moves would be to lift a ban that would swell the number abortions both here and abroad.They weren't kidding.

    WASHINGTON - As he tries to explain how he'll cope with the return of his wife's cancer, presidential hopeful John Edwards is opening up about another family struggle — the death of his teenage son Wade 11 years ago. His family life suddenly in the spotlight, Edwards has responded by speaking about an experience bound to bring him sympathy, humanize his campaign and focus on perseverance after tragedy. The discussion began last Thursday when John and Elizabeth Edwards announced her breast cancer had spread to her bone. It continued Saturday when Edwards was asked if he could balance the campaign...

Chinese officials denied those allegations. Mr Matas and Mr Kilgour's second report, released today, includes interviews with organ recipients in 30 countries and Canadian hospital staff who cared for more than 100 patients who had...

    (Stratford-AP, Apr. 14, 2006 7:52 AM) The Beautification committee of Stratford's town council had to do some scrambling so it wouldn't offend anybody by making a reference to Christmas. The committee had submitted a request for $2,500 for Christmas wreaths this year. It was apparently a misprint, they were looking for "holiday" wreaths. Committee chairman Angelo Stavola says he moved quickly to change the wording so as not to offend anybody. He says it's the holiday season and we consider it the holiday season and they're holiday decorations. Mayor James Miron agrees. He says in this day and age, to...

Thanks to the work of Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, (D) and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, (D-Illinois), the U.S. State Department has created a special “designated event status” for the event which will allow HIV infected athletes and spectators to enter the country despite a national prohibition.

    The New York Civil Liberties Union will file suit against the city Thursday to keep police from searching the bags of passengers entering the subway, organization lawyers said. The suit, which will be filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, will claim that the two-week old policy violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection and prohibitions against unlawful searches and seizures, while doing almost nothing to shield the city from terrorism. It argues that the measure also allows the possibility for racial profiling, even though officers are ordered to randomly screen passengers. "While concerns about terrorism of course justify -- indeed,...

    LONDON (AFP) - Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, has complained that his future subjects have "tortured" him over his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles, a newspaper reported. The Mail on Sunday said the prince's comments to BBC journalist Gavin Hewitt, included in a new book, will fuel concern at the public's growing disenchantment with the monarchy and the prince's suitability to become king. While at first refusing to discuss his relationship with Parker Bowles, Charles is pressed further and then snaps: "I thought the British people were supposed to be compassionate. I don't see much of it,"...

    It sometimes pays incredibly well to be a protester in the city, as seven complainants discovered this week after the D.C. government agreed to ease their long-term distress with $425,000. The settlement goes back to demonstrations waged against the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank on Sept. 27, 2002, when D.C. police made mass arrests at Pershing Park, east of the White House. The settlement also calls for police Chief Charles H. Ramsey to write letters of apology to each of the seven. The pact, fortunately, stops short of requiring Mayor Anthony A. Williams to hold a ticker-tape parade...

Stranded on Blue Islands gives us the whole scoop about the Wisconsin vote but I'll just note three things: 1. You can register to vote on election day in Wisconsin. 2. In Miwaukee alone, 10,000 votes cannot be verified - ie, they...

The exact extent of the coverage is still uncertain as the networks await to hear from New York, Washington and Shanksville, Pa., on their plans for the day, but it is highly unlikely that ABC, CBS and NBC News will repeat their 2002 menu of broad live coverage...
