    A grabbing frenzy erupts at a superstore with scores of Black Friday shoppers fighting tooth and nail for TOWELS. The mainly female crowd of bargain-hunters whoops, hollers and cries out with excitement over the reduced fabric and other household wares. Most squabbles over Black Friday bargains have tended to be over higher value items, such as TVs and games consoles.

    You thought you ate a lot for Thanksgiving? Turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie were just the beginning as President-elect Donald Trump dined with his family at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Their festive feast included six choices of main courses and eight different desserts — including "three-layer Trump chocolate cake." Here's what else was on the soon-to-be first family's menu.

    New York Police Department's Precinct 60 has pulled off a massive mannequin challenge with a holiday flare. The nearly three-minute video opts out of the traditional Rae Sremmurd's 'Black Beatles', which is typically used in the challenge. Instead, it plays the cheery song 'Easy Street' from the Walking Dead as the camera breezes through the precinct, revealing all kinds of mischief and holiday fun the officers are getting into. From new recruits to plain-clothed officers and high-ranking cops, it appears everyone took time out to participate in the video, which has been viewed more than 27,000 times.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Barack Obama and his family are spending Thanksgiving with friends, family, turkey and touchdowns, as he puts it, and reflecting "on what truly binds us as Americans." He says the country has just emerged from "a noisy, passionate and sometimes divisive campaign season." But he says in his weekly radio address that the holiday "reminds us that no matter our differences, we are still one people, part of something bigger than ourselves." The White House says Obama made nine telephone calls to service members who are on deployment. The Obamas' menu begins with a large list...

    A U.S. service member was killed by an improvised explosive device in northern Syria on Thursday, the Pentagon announced in a statement. The service member was killed near Ayn Issa, a town roughly 35 miles northwest of the Islamic State’s self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa. The death marks the first time a U.S. service member has been killed in the country since a contingent of Special Operations forces were deployed there in October 2015 to go after the extremist group.

    Normally I would go to my only relative I talk to in the area, my cousin, but he's down in Williamsburg on vacation. So I am home alone, made a modest Thanksgiving dinner with a New Braunsfels smoked chicken (yum!), mashed potatoes, dressing and peas. I had a co-worker invite me over to his house if I wanted to, but I politely declined - I like the guy, he is a fellow Trump supporter in my department. But I am really not alone. I have all my FReeper buds keeping me company this holiday. And for that I give thanks.

    This week almost 50 million Americans will take planes, trains, automobiles (and even boats) to travel miles from home for Thanksgiving festivities according to AAA. The auto club sees more than a million extra travelers leaving home this year between now and the end of the month. Thanksgiving is traditionally of as a time for turkey and dinner with family, but given these statistics perhaps it ought to be thought of as a time for travel. After all, the first Thanksgiving was really about travel as well with Europeans having just finished the perilous journey across thousands of miles of...

Kimbrough is one of two Americans on board, but all of the astronauts—who are from the U.S., France and Russia—will dig into a space-friendly version of a quintessential, American Thanksgiving meal: packets of turkey, green beans, candied yams and mashed potatoes. In order to eat dinner, the orbiting men and women just add...

    Thanksgiving has always been a time to gather with friends and family, to reflect on the year that's gone by and give thanks for the blessings you've been given in life.This year, however, many of you may be meeting with relatives and friends who have very different political views that you, which may have caused a serious rift (or an ending altogether) in your relationships. Although family should always come before these differences, in many cases relatives are being uninvited to Thanksgiving dinner due to their political choices during this election.

    (CNN)It's been a bad couple of weeks for Democrats. And if President-elect Donald Trump's early staffing choices are any indication, the next few years could be considerably worse. Come January, the Democrats will be entirely out of power in Washington for the first time in a decade. But while the immediate future seems full of inner conflict and rearguard actions to preserve political and social norms (to say nothing of President Barack Obama's legacy), there are still at least a handful of reasons for Democrats to feel grateful this holiday season.

The bickering and griping from the purists and professional conservative class who are out to prove that Trump is not a "true conservative" will go on forever, but they quickly forget that he has already saved (conserved) our nation from a one-way trip to a third-world Marxist/fascist cesspit under the rule of the godless Hillary Clinton.

    Several years ago, President Barack Obama's political team inaugurated an interesting holiday tradition when they advised Americans to talk about health care policy over Thanksgiving dinner. They were amateurs. After this year's election, with everyone hot to tell their relatives in America's heartland about the errors of their ways, Thanksgiving is going pro. A few talking points to help you: If home is a Rust Belt community hollowed out by globalized economics and left with inadequate assistance for trade adjustment, mediocre schools and a porous social safety net, then, before the bird is even stuffed, lay into your relatives about...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The Real Story of Thanksgiving is a tradition on this program. I have to tell you, the holidays anymore, I am just overwhelmed with so many different emotions. I have the... This is my favorite time of year, starting now and going through Christmas. I just absolutely love it. It's because of my childhood and memories of my childhood, and being in Sacramento and Pittsburgh, and then moving to New York in 1988, and my mother and father passing away. It's nostalgic to the hilt. Nostalgia reminds you of the good times. But now it's become guilt...

    St. Augustine, Florida, is a small city with a lot of “firsts” to its credit. It was the first permanent European settlement in what is now the United States. It was the site of the first Mass in the U.S. It is the place where the first shrine to Our Lady was erected (it stands on the grounds of the Mission Nombre de Dios). It was from here that the first Catholic mission to American Indians was launched. And, now, here comes the surprise — St. Augustine was the site of the first Thanksgiving celebration in America. As you’d...

    1 min 45 second new video from Trump's YouTube channel stressing national unity with the coming Thanksgiving Holiday. I like these because it's a way to completely circumvent the mass media without resorting to Twitter.

    We are very blessed to call this nation our home. And that's what America is. It is our home. It's where we raise our families, care for our loved ones, look out for our neighbors, and live out our dreams. It's my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions, and move forward as one country, strengthened by shared purpose, and very very common resolve...

    The 400 year history of Thanksgiving as a holiday of thankfulness for God’s mercy to our founding forefathers and Natives has been replaced with a new motif on our omniscient college campuses: Thanksgiving is Racist! This new postmodern narrative says that Thanksgiving represents racism, crimes against Native Americans, exploitation, evil colonization, theft of native lands, and genocide (with no examples of course). Adherents even maintain that there is no evidence that the Thanksgiving story actually occurred (despite libraries of evidence written by men and women who were there). Yes, this all knowing generation has taken the mantle from their omniscient...
