    After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story. “As soon as it was revealed through an interview with the child's father that the family had not been separated there was a really strong right-wing backlash to your cover, including...
  • Using Their Own Tactics Against Them.

    Using their Alinsky tactics against them. I'm fed up. I am fed up with being called a NAZI. Dan Bongino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQlw7Vbkva8&t=3087s gave a great show about this and why they are doing it. The Nazis did it to the Jews. Make them look like something less than human, so it's easier to do to them what was coming. The TIME magazine cover was the last straw. I have decided to resume the fight the only way I know how. I am a cartoonist, what can I do? "The political cartoonist is the biggest threat to a dictator, because he can...

    At the bottom of the TIME article of the young crying girl 'separated from her mother by border control agents', we find this: Correction: The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she taken from the scene. The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together.

    The family separation issue is tough, but don't expect liberals at TIME magazine to understand that. On Thursday, the magazine's cover attacked President Donald Trump as heartless."Welcome to America," the cover's title, is trending on Twitter.Orlando talk radio host Joe Kelly shared the cover, and explained it briefly. "Time Magazine's latest cover features a fabricated mashup of a child at the border crying with a seemingly uncaring President Trump staring down at her with the words 'Welcome to America,'" he explained.

    The History of Time after Pentecost THE SOLEMNITY OF PENTECOST and its Octave are over, and the progress of the Liturgical Year introduces us into a new period, which is altogether different from those we have hitherto spent. From the very beginning of Advent, which is the prelude to the Christmas festival, right up to the anniversary of the descent of the Holy Ghost, we have witnessed the entire series of the Mysteries of our Redemption; all have been unfolded to us. The sequel of Seasons and Feasts made up a sublime drama, which absorbed our very existence; we...

    Timeless recap: Bloodshed and betrayal in an explosive two-part season finale (SPOILER ALERT!) by Devan Coggan After an untimely cancellation and an unexpected resurrection in its freshman season, Timeless is taking no chances this time around. The time travel drama is closing out its stellar second season with a gutsy, guns-blazing finale that completely rewrites the rules — and showcases how much this show has grown. Not only has Timeless ironed out some of its kinks and tightened up its mythology, but it’s also finally leaning into its strengths — particularly its strong cast and time-period-of-the-week structure. -- SNIP --...

    President Donald Trump’s fiercest Democratic critic has launched a new attack on the president, this time telling him to just resign so that she no longer has to fight for his impeachment. Representative Maxine Waters, of California, has repeatedly called on Trump to be impeached, citing a variety of reasons, from his conduct in office to what she has alleged was his campaign’s collusion with Russia, even before Special Counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian interference. Asked if she had any advice for Trump during a gala for the Time 100 in New York on Tuesday, Waters...

    Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.

    What does it really mean to say that time ‘passes’? Why does time pass faster in the mountains than it does at sea level? The physicist explains in this extract from his latest book I stop and do nothing. Nothing happens. I am thinking about nothing. I listen to the passing of time. This is time, familiar and intimate. We are taken by it. The rush of seconds, hours, years that hurls us towards life then drags us towards nothingness ... We inhabit time as fish live in water. Our being is being in time. Its solemn music nurtures us,...

    The History of Paschal Time WE GIVE THE NAME OF PASCHAL TIME to the period between Easter Sunday and the Saturday following Whit Sunday. It is the most sacred portion of the Liturgical year, and the one towards which the whole Cycle converges. We shall easily understand how this is, if we reflect on the greatness of the Easter Feast, which is called the Feast of Feasts, and the Solemnity of solemnities, in the same manner, says St. Gregory, as the most sacred part of the Temple was called the Holy of holies: and the Book of Sacred Scripture,...

    The Long Now Foundation’s clock is a symbol for multi-generational thinking Jeff Bezos wants us all to be good ancestors. The Amazon supremo just tweeted that installation has begun on one of his pet projects of the last decade, the 10,000 Year Clock, also called the Clock of the Long Now. Designed to stay accurate for that huge time period, the giant clock will tick once a year, moving its century hand every 100 years, and send out a cuckoo once a millennia – just 10 times in its life. And it costs US$ 42 million. What is Bezos thinking?...

    All in God's time Question: God always was and always will be. We are talking about millions of years. How can I better understand this? — Eugene Herkins, Naples, Florida Answer: The wording of your question indicates you are thinking of time in a linear way. To be sure, it is difficult for us to grasp such a long period of time. However, God is more than very old, he is eternal. Eternity refers not merely to the length of time, but more accurately, to the fullness of time. For God, there is no tomorrow or yesterday; everything is...

    We already have a well-established way of representing time using years, months, week, days, hours, minutes, and seconds. Want to go smaller? We've got milliseconds, microseconds, and even nanoseconds. But none of these suited Facebook in terms of accuracy, so engineers at the social network came up with a brand new unit of time called Flicks. A flick, as described on the Flicks GitHub page, is "the smallest time unit which is LARGER than a nanosecond." One flick is 1/705,600,000 seconds, where as a nanosecond is 1/1,000,000,000 seconds. But why did Facebook need to invent Flicks? It's in order to...

    Just what is a second, exactly? The question has been open to interpretation ever since the first long-case grandfather clocks began marking off seconds in the mid-17th century and introduced the concept to the world at large. The answer, simply, is that a second is 1/60th of a minute, or 1/3600th of an hour. But that’s just pushing the question down the road a bit. After all, what’s an hour? That answer is related to the best means of time-keeping ancient civilizations had — the movement of the Earth through the heavens. The amount of time it takes for the...

    Liberal reporters are scandalized by what they say is President Trump’s effort to “discredit” and “undermine” special counsel Robert Mueller, worried that it could presage an attempt to “remove Mueller, or end his investigation.” But when President Bill Clinton was being investigated by Ken Starr, journalists applauded Democratic and White House attacks on the independent counsel, and frequently joined in themselves. Today’s journalists seem appalled by attempts by the President and his allies that question Mueller’s credibility. Washington Post reporters Devlin Barrett and Sean Sullivan sounded the alarm in a front-page story on December 7: “Several law enforcement officials said...

    Juanita Broaddrick will not stay quiet regarding Time magazine’s “silence breakers” piece on the #MeToo movement. Time featured a slew of famous faces for its annual “Person of the Year” issue — those who bring awareness to sexual assault collectively captured the distinction — but Ms. Broaddrick says her contributions were conspicuously left out. The woman who has maintained for decades that former President Bill Clinton raped her in Arkansas when she was 35 years old says her message for Time’s editors veered from the “liberal victim mold.”

    IME Magazine named “The Silence Breakers” of the #MeToo movement — the social media-born status symbol for sexual assault and harassment survivors — as its 2017 Person of the Year, referencing President Donald Trump in its cover story more than a dozen times. The #MeToo movement made waves in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex misconduct scandal as women spoke out in protest against sexual harassment in Hollywood, the media, and beyond. The TIME cover story honoring the social media-driven moniker name-drops President Trump nine times and references him on several other occasions despite the fact that the allegations...

    It has created a wave of awareness and brave confrontations over sexual harassment and assault, taking down powerful men in the process. And now the #MeToo movement has been named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2017. On its cover, Time called the movement "The Silence Breakers." Its story features women and men who have spoken out - including activist Tarana Burke, who started the hashtag 10 years ago. #MeToo had its start as a social media campaign in the wake of high-profile accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

    Time Magazine has released a list of finalists for their "person of the year:" Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, Jeff Bezos, Colin Kaepernick, The Dreamers, Robert Mueller, Patty Jenkins and Donald Trump. Why it matters: President Trump was named Person of the Year by the magazine last year, and tweeted a couple weeks ago that he he had told Time "no thanks" when they informed him he would "probably" receive the title again. Time denied the story. Trump has often boasted about being on the cover of Time magazine, and the Washington Post discovered that...
