    Because Donald Trump is, well, Donald Trump, a lot of attention has been paid to his hostile takeover of the Republican Party -- and how he continues to consolidate that power. What that focus on how Trump killed the old -- and by that we mean the 2012 -- version of the Republican Party misses is how much the Democratic Party has evolved -- and is evolving -- in its own way. Like Republicans, that change sped up -- rapidly -- in 2016. It was led by an unlikely figure -- Democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders. To say Sanders was...

    The American Left is stoking hatred and it’s tearing us apart. Our media is guilty of not only of failing to shame those responsible, in many cases they egg them on, giving them a platform. The volume of irrational hatred spewing into our ether is extremely unhealthy, even dangerous for our republic and the broader American culture.

    I'm looking for historical ratings of Presidents from a Conservative source. Most I've read are done by "liberal" political scientists. One example? Jimmy Carter ranked higher than George W. Bush? C'mon, that's preposterous.

    Americans have tossed former President Bill Clinton aside and now say that former President Barack Obama was the “best” president of their lifetime -- by a huge gap of 31 percent to 13 percent. But a new Pew Research Center survey of 2,002 adults found that President Trump topped Obama as the best president of their lifetime at this stage of his presidency.

    ByBRAD CRAWFORD Jul 9, 8:02 AM Which college football teams are the most complete and talent-rich heading into the 2018 season? Preseason magazine guru Phil Steele, who studies rosters and interviews coaches 12 months out of the year, believes he has an idea. He has compiled his annual 'Preseason Top 40' rankings, a list that's usually one of the most accurate nationally. Steele notes two important guidelines about this year's rankings, which for this exercise have been trimmed to the first 25 teams. "My preseason rankings are not my power rankings," Steele writes. "These rankings take into account the totality...

    With over 37 million residents, Greater Tokyo is the most populous metro area in the world today. Urban growth is not unique to Japan. By 2030, the United Nations predicts that the world will have 43 megacities, defined as metro areas with more than 10 million people. Most of them will be in developing regions in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The UN recently released its annual World Urbanization Prospects, which estimates which metro areas will have the highest populations by 2030. On World Population Day this Wednesday, let's take a look at the top 13: 13. Greater New...

    Forget the Golden Arches of McDonald’s, or the Whopper at Burger King, even the double double of In-N-Out Burger. Chick-fil-A is the tops for those wanting a fast meal. The chicken chain was named the favorite limited-service restaurant by consumers according to the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index’s Restaurant Report, USA Today reported. Chick-fil-A beat out other restaurants like Panera and Taco Bell based on interviews with 22,500 customers. They were asked about the products, services and satisfaction, USA Today reported. Specifically, those polled gave their ranking on a variety of topics including food quality and restaurant cleanliness, Fortune reported....

    Are you folks aware that when the weekly Cable TV News viewer numbers are posted, the viewers watching Fox Business Channel are not included. As it stands Fox News Channel alone is destroying both MSNBC and basement dweller, CNN. Add the FBN viewer numbers and fox just about outscores all of cable television. A recent article in Forbes magazine states, FBN crushes CNBC. Maria Bartioromo (Morning) has 260,000 viewers, Charles Payne has 310,000 viewers (Evening) and Lou Dobbs 430,000 viewers (Evening). The Fox pair is nearing the 4-5 million viewers per day on a regular basis...with MSNBC at about 2...

    Here are five judges who could potentially replace the retiring Anthony Kennedy. The retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy today gives President Trump a second nominee to the Supreme Court and an opportunity to strengthen the hold of conservatives on the court majority with a younger, more conservative successor to Kennedy. Five federal appeals court judges are at the top of the list of potential nominees: Brett Kavanaugh, 53, of Maryland, a major figure in conservative legal circles, sits on the D.C. Circuit Court. He is known for his impressive decisions and writings while sitting on a court that President Obama...

    10. ManchineelWould you believe that there's a tree so poisonous that you don't actually have to touch it to be harmed? It's called the manchineel tree (Hippomane mancinella), found throughout the Florida Everglades, Central America and the Caribbean. Inhaling sawdust or smoke from the 30-foot (9.1-meter) tall tree may result in a variety of uncomfortable side effects, including coughing, laryngitis and bronchitis. Some reports suggest that simply standing beneath the tree during a rainstorm and being splashed by runoff may result in rashes and itching. Your car isn't even safe from this toxic tree: Park under its low branches, and...

    While Fox News continues to dominate in the world of cable, CNN’s audience continues to shrink, reports TV Newser. In all of cable last week (not just cable news), Fox News was number one in primetime, averaging an incredible 2.513 million viewers. Fox News even humiliated second place MSNBC, which averaged just 1.78 million primetime viewers. But way, way, way down in 13th place, below even the Food Network, sits far-left CNN at number 13 and an average of just 914,000 viewers — which is about a third of Fox’s numbers. In total day viewers, Fox News is again number...

    "Melania” was among the top five baby names in rising popularity last year, the first year of Melania Trump’s time as first lady of the United States.

    Washington - The Democratic National Committee is eyeing eight American cities for its 2020 Democratic National Convention, a party official tells CNN. The DNC sent requests for proposals to a host of cities and received responses from eight: Atlanta; Birmingham, Alabama; Denver; Houston; Miami Beach; Milwaukee; New York; and San Francisco. "The DNC sent the original letters of interest to a broad list of cities that have traditionally been able to meet the preliminary requirements for serving as a host," the official said. "We expect the entire selection process to play out over the next year."

    Up to 95 per cent of plastic polluting the world’s oceans pours in from just ten rivers, according to new research. The top 10 rivers – eight of which are in Asia – accounted for so much plastic because of the mismanagement of waste. About five trillion pounds is floating in the sea, and targeting the major sources – such as the Yangtze and the Ganges – could almost halve it, scientists claim. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt flew in coach-class seats on at least two trips home to Oklahoma when taxpayers weren’t footing the bill, despite claims he...

    RENAULT unveiled the EZ-GO, a concept for a robotaxi, at the Geneva motor show, which opened on March 5th. Nissan, in conjunction with DeNA, a Japanese software firm, recently began trials of driverless taxis in Japan. The two companies are pursuing their own paths towards the future of mobility. Yet both are bound together in a close alliance, which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year. In 2016 they were joined by Mitsubishi. Last year the trio sold 10.6m cars between them, one in every nine worldwide. It is a unique carmaking liaison, neither a full merger nor as loose as...
