    Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens on Thursday said that he does not believe President Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed to the high court. Stevens told a small crowd in Boca Raton, Fla., he once believed Kavanaugh to be qualified, but his performance in Senate Judiciary hearings changed his mind, according to The Palm Beach Post. “I’ve changed my views for reasons that have no relationship to his intellectual ability,” Stevens said, noting Kavanaugh's fiery denial of sexual misconduct accusations in a Senate Judiciary Hearing last week. “The Senators should pay attention to this,” Stevens...

    American conservative political commentator Glenn Beck is staging a nationwide intervention. That alone should give people reason to fear for the the state of our nation. But seriously, the guy who has spent plenty of time on TV crying and stirring up scandal and conspiracy theories on his radio show, thinks the country is addicted to rage, which just so happens to be the name of his new book. Beck seems to have some self-awareness that he has contributed to the problem. “After learning the hard way about the importance of thinking before speaking, Glenn invites audiences to have intimate...

    Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential election, just can’t quite seem to get it through her head — that she lost the presidential election. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, she told the writer she should’ve won — she would’ve won — had it not been for those dang, pesky Russians. Her words: “I would have won had I not been subjected to the unprecedented attacks by [former FBI chief James] Comey and the Russians, aided and abetted by the suppression of the vote, particularly in Wisconsin,” where I didn’t bother to campaign. Oops — that last was...

    Washington (CNN) -- The retired general who took charge of relief efforts in New Orleans, Louisiana, after Hurricane Katrina said Thursday that the U.S. military should have arrived in earthquake-devastated Haiti 24 hours earlier. "The good Samaritans who moved early on the first day are to be applauded. They made a difference," said Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, a CNN contributor. "What we've got to do now is get the heavy equipment in. I thought the U.S. military could have been there a day earlier.

    Actress Kirsten Dunst has come under fire from historians for her "frightful" interpretation of tragic French queen Marie Antoinette. Dunst plays the 18th Century monarch in Sofia Coppola's racy new biopic, which was booed by critics at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Now her overtly sexual performance has been attacked by France's Marie Antoinette Association as well, who insists the queen's bedroom antics are not factually based. The association's president Michele Lorin says, "I've seen the trailer for the film on the internet. It is a fright. We've spent years trying to convince people that the queen was not just...

    Lawyers for another condemned inmate say Stanley Tookie Williams may have felt horrible pain. Prison officials allowed the execution of convicted murderer Stanley Tookie Williams to proceed, even though a nurse had failed to hook up a backup intravenous line minutes before authorities delivered the lethal injection drugs, according to court filings made public Tuesday. Defense attorneys for a man on death row at San Quentin cited the problem as part of a legal challenge to California's lethal injection procedure. Later this month, U.S. District Judge Jeremy Fogel in San Jose will hear the challenge, which asserts that condemned prisoners...
