    Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the legislation on Sunday, prohibiting middle schools from starting class before 8 a.m. and high schools no earlier than 8:30 a.m. "The science shows that teenage students who start their day later increase their academic performance, attendance and overall health," Newsom said in a statement. "Importantly, the law allows three years for schools and school districts to plan and implement these changes."

    Bill Gates in an interview published Tuesday defended his association with registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, describing his relationship with the disgraced financier as business-oriented. Gates told The Wall Street Journal that he met with Epstein solely for his connections to other businessmen, adding that he did not attend the rumored parties at which Epstein was accused of preying on young girls. "I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn’t go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that," Gates told the Journal. "There were people around him who...

    Cables sent from the United Kingdom's Ambassador to the United States to the British Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) describe President Donald Trump as "inept," "insecure" and "incompetent," a UK government official confirms to CNN. The cables were leaked to and first published by the Daily Mail. Sir Kim Darroch, the British Ambassador to the US, used secret cables and briefing notes to warn the UK government that Trump's "career could end in disgrace," and described conflicts within the White House as "knife fights," according to the Daily Mail. A UK government source tells CNN the memos described in the Daily...

    We really, truly think that Sen. Elizabeth Warren actually thinks that a DNA test revealing she might be 1/1024th Native American is proof of her claim to Native American heritage — even though the Cherokee Nation itself is disputing that delusion and taking it as the insult it is. And we’ve already seen that a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described Elizabeth Warren as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color.” Wonder where they got that idea? Is that what she told them, or did she wear native garb and bring in a dish from the “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook...

    The Deep State rabbit hole just got a little deeper. Did you know anti-Trump FBI official Peter Strzok grew up in Iran and Saudi Arabia? Strzok’s father, Peter Strzok Sr. was in Iran when Muslim hardliners stormed the U.S. embassy, took hostages, and overthrew the U.S. friendly government. Since that time Iran has been a “death to America” fixture in the Middle East. Strzok Sr. was supportive of the Iranian revolution. Fast forward several decades later and you want to know who headed the Obama-era outreach to Iran where hundreds of millions of dollars were given to the radical Islamic...

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said he regrets telling FBI agent Peter Strzok in Thursday’s House Judiciary and House Oversight committee hearing that he deserves a Purple Heart medal for his testimony. “I said something at the hearings yesterday about Purple Hearts which another network that is named for a four-legged animal has been making a big deal about,” Cohen told CNN, referring to criticism from Fox News. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart,’” he continued. “I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should be given to agent Strzok. But I do believe that...

    I know the mainstream media is still licking its wounds after President-elect Donald Trump smacked them around in his first press conference since winning the election.And I hate to add salt to their wounds, but it seems they’ve got a case of amnesia.The media feigned outrage after Mr. Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter.“Don’t be rude,” Mr. Trump told CNN’s Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”He went all-out against the network because they reported on an unsubstantiated 35-page document that...

    In a new Vogue feature, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence described the reason behind her political affiliation, including why she doesn't support the Republican Party. And the Hunger Games star's logic is simple. "I was raised a Republican, but I just can't imagine supporting a party that doesn't support women's basic rights," Lawrence told Vogue. Many of the Republican presidential hopefuls have identified as pro-life. Some have advocated for defunding Planned Parenthood, which offers reproductive health services to women. "It's 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we've come so far, so, yay! But have we?...

    It kills me to write this post. I have spent more time worshiping Beyoncé than just about any other pop star. I've spent countless hours dancing to "Grown Woman" alone in my apartment. I've been the only guy in a dance class aimed at teaching the "Single Ladies" dance, and I loved every second of it. Beyoncé has been queen in my life since the first time I watched the "Crazy In Love" video. But. Over the past few months, Beyoncé has repeatedly refused the opportunity to speak out against the legalization of discrimination against LGBT people in her hometown......

    Residents of the Israeli border city of Sderot would like actor Mark Ruffalo to visit and learn how they feel living under the constant threat of rocket attacks, after he posted a tweet calling on Israel to lift its blockade on Gaza. Ruffalo also tweeted a link to an online petition that accused Israel of violating international law and keeping Gazans from receiving construction materials to rebuild homes destroyed in last summer’s military conflict between Israel and Hamas. The petition did not mention the terrorist group that controls Gaza. “I invite Mark Ruffalo to come to me for [Sabbath], to...

    Rush Limbaugh wasn’t exactly happy about last night’s debate, and took a few shots at Fox News and Megyn Kelly for how it went down. Donald Trump and at least one of Kelly’s own colleagues weren’t happy with her line of questioning last night, and Limbaugh pointed out today that Kelly and her co-moderators Bret Baier and Chris Wallace got far more airtime than any of the candidates. He also brought up Kelly’s question “filled with snark about Jesus” directed at John Kasich. But what astonished him the most was how the Fox moderators basically made it seem like there’s...
