    Donald J. Trump has been working to mend fences with many of his detractors, but among literary luminaries it is looking like it will be a tough sell. A group of more than 400 writers, including big names such as Stephen King, David Eggers, Amy Tan, Junot Daz and Cheryl Strayed, released an online petition on Tuesday to express their opposition to Mr. Trumps candidacy on the grounds that he is appealing to the darkest elements in American society.

From The Federalist: Glenn Beck and Erick Erickson have both written pieces in response to this weeks meeting with Facebook Beck as someone who attended, Erick as someone who didnt. Both suggest the same thing about the conservative relationship with Facebook: that criticizing the corporate entity for its obvious bias in its news curation is an act of hypocrisy and nothing more than a Jesse Jackson-style shakedown. These are the complaints of useful idiots. They...

Much of the anger is directed at the display of a pistol used by William Quantrill, a Confederate fighter who captured runaway slaves in Kansas and Missouri.

In January, the controversy was renewed after the Academy announced its acting nominations included no people of color for a second straight year. “It’s no change there. It’s not as if it’s ever been awash with people of color. Let’s face it, the Oscar membership is mainly old, white men,”...

    UNITED NATIONS: Pope Francis on Friday threw his support behind Iran's accord with major powers as he backed a goal of global abolition of nuclear weapons. The Iran agreement "is proof of the potential of political goodwill, exercised with sincerity, patience and constancy," Francis said in an address to the United Nations. "I express my hope that this agreement will be lasting and efficacious, and bring forth the desired fruits with the cooperation of all the parties involved," he said. Francis made his remarks a day after a friendly welcome at the U.S. Congress, where many Republican lawmakers have vehemently...
  • The Biggest Idiots in Politics: The #Blacklivesmatter Protesters

    Nobody is working harder to ensure that black Americans die violently than the #Blacklivesmatter protesters. Not the KKK. Not the Aryan Nation. Not the American Nazi Party. In fact, if those groups were smart (and being a part of one of those groups is de facto proof that they’re not), then they’d be doing everything they can to fund the #blacklivesmatter crowd. Why? Well, first of all, despite the name, the group doesn’t care about most #blacklives. On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted PER DAY in the United States. Many of those innocents are slaughtered via Planned Parenthood, an...

    Things got very awkward on Thursday when Chris Matthews asked DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz what the difference was between the modern Democratic Party and Socialism. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was completely stumped. She couldnt answer the question. We havent seen that dazed look since Rachel Dolezal was busted as a fraud. Because, as we all know, there is no difference between todays Democrat Party and radical Socialism. On Sunday DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was again asked to explain the difference between the modern day Democratic Party and Socialism. Again She failed. You know Chuck it is always fun to...

    Here's what we know: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed in 1953 for selling U.S. nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union after one of the most sensational Cold War-era espionage trials. They were convicted in 1951 owing, largely, to the testimony of David Greenglass, Ethel Rosenberg's brother. Here's what we don't know: How credible Greenglass' testimony was in court. Greenglass himself spent nearly a decade in prison for his role in the conspiracy. The Army sergeant stole nuclear intelligence from Los Alamos, N.M., and said he passed it on to the Rosenbergs. At the trial, he said Ethel Rosenberg typed...

  • So You Think That Rainbow Makes You Look Cool? (contains profanity)

    I have an important public service announcement for everyone who changed their Facebook and other profile photos to a rainbow recently. Absent some massive desire for more color in your life, you probably did this to celebrate the United States Supreme Court magically creating a constitutional "right" to a marriage license for gay people. Didn't you? I suppose you think this makes you quite tolerant, and forward thinking, but it doesn't. I imagine you think you're advancing freedom, but you're not. You probably feel really good about yourself for helping gay people gain acceptance in society, but that's not even...

    Ali Michael is a young writer for the Huffington Post. Thats bad enough in itself, but it gets even worse. You see, shes a white lady who hates whites. Herself included. As she explains in a recent piece about her views on race: "I definitely experienced this. There was a time in my 20s when everything I learned about the history of racism made me hate myself, my Whiteness, my ancestors and my descendants. I remember deciding that I couldnt have biological children because I didnt want to propagate my privilege biologically. "If I was going to pass on my...
