  • Utah woman fights criminal charge after kids see her topless at home

    SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah woman charged with a crime after her stepchildren saw her topless in her own home is fighting the case that could force her to register as a sex offender, citing a court ruling that overturned a topless ban in Colorado. Attorneys for Tilli Buchanan argue that the law is unfair because it treats men and women differently for baring their chests. They are asking a judge to overturn her misdemeanor lewdness charges and declare that part of the law unconstitutional. Prosecutors counter that nudity is commonly understood to include women’s breasts in American society...
  • Coalition strikes on Raqqa 'killed 1,600 civilians'

    More than 1,600 civilians were killed in US-led coalition air and artillery strikes during the offensive to oust the Islamic State group from the Syrian city of Raqqa in 2017, activists say. Amnesty International and monitoring group Airwars said they had carried out investigations at 200 strike locations and identified 1,000 of the victims. They urged the coalition to "end almost two years of denial" about such deaths. The coalition says there were 180 civilian casualties in its campaign. Commanders say all feasible precautions to avoid civilian casualties were taken in those cases and that the decisions to strike complied...

    Let's cut the crap. These women only have to listen to these guys for a few minutes. Next thing you know they're ready to take their pants off. It worked with B.J. and Hussein. Doesn't matter to them if they end up like Mary Jo or Kathleen Wiley-remember her? Beto stepped up to be the next one. Are all women this way? The answer is no. It only takes a few and the election is lost. This is what we are up against. John Edwards must be fuming somewhere.

    Jerry Miculek is busy pouncing 22LR lead and wearing the paint off some steel targets with the new Thompson Center T/CR22 rifle. Whats is remarkable is when he goes at it again he takes it up another notch in speed.

The T/CR22 includes a green fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear peep sight for quick target acquisition, while the built-in picatinny-style rail allows for the mounting of an optic for precision shooting at longer ranges.

    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...

    The most annoying word or phrase used in casual conversation this year? Whatever. According to the annual Marist Poll released Monday, for the ninth consecutive year, “whatever” takes the prize as the most irksome word, 33 percent of Americans say. Rounding out the top five were “fake news” (23 percent), “no offense, but” (20 percent), “literally” (11 percent) an “you know what I mean” (10 percent), according to the poll.
  • Hope Hicks went from Mimicking Ivanka's style to Melania Trump's—and it could reveal building drama

    Business Insider ^ | Katie Taylor
    While once Ivanka Trump was a conservative darling, the first daughter has fallen out of favor with much of the right, including the president. Republicans' perception of Ivanka Trump has dropped as the first daughter has been increasingly seen as a moderating force. Even President Trump was reportedly frustrated after Ivanka criticized Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual harassing and assaulting teen girls. Over the same period, Hope Hicks has stopped taking fashion cues from Ivanka — and moved on to Melania Trump. Hicks debuted the new fashion strategy at a state dinner in Tokyo....

    <p>Nowhere is the gendered double standard more apparent than in the Miss Universe competition.</p> <p>While women in all industries face professional hurdles, pageants are one of the only workplaces where they are required to wear ball gowns while doing so. In this annual competition, women are expected to be gorgeous, intelligent, and poised; to look good in a bikini, ace a question-and-answer segment, represent their entire nation and walk perfectly in high heels. Meanwhile Steve Harvey, the reigning male host, automatically exceeds expectations if he manages to read out the correct winner (and was somehow rehired after fucking up his one and only job).</p>

    F. Lee Hannity ended his show a few minutes ago by giving Roy Moore an ultimatum. He showed a clip of him grilling Moore this past Friday and said Moore acted evasive. He goes on to say that the new allegation and the Yearbook sigining looks really bad for Moore. Then F. Lee Hannity looked straight in the camera and said “Roy Moore you have 24 hours to to explain yourself and put an end to this.” F, Lee Hannity didn’t say what he intended to do if the judge does not PROVE to him he’s an innocent man, What...

    Lord Jesus, Satan's plans for America have somehow been derailed by the election of President Trump and witches, pagans, Luciferians and other NWO Unipartiers are reacting with Satanic prayers. Lord, You sit in the heavens and laugh in derision at these created beings who attempt to conjure up supernatural evil as they claim Satan's power is equal to Yours. Expose this lie, thwart this evil movement against our President and may Your glory be revealed for all who dare to practice occultism against our President and Christians in this nation.

    Donald Trump's campaign manager appeared to contradict the presidential candidate in a radio interview on Tuesday when he said that Ted Cruz has no connection to the super PAC that put out images of Trump's wife. Speaking on the John Fredericks Show, a Virginia talk radio program, Corey Lewandowski started by denying that the Trump campaign had anything to do with an unsubstantiated tabloid story alleging Cruz had multiple affairs. That story quoted former Trump campaign official Roger Stone. "I can tell you unequivocally that this campaign, nor anyone associated with this campaign, had anything to do with this story,"...

    Hillary Clinton spoke about the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina by posing the following questions: How many innocent people in our country from little children to church members to movie theater attendees? How many people do we need to see cut down before we act? In the first question, Hillary makes obvious references to the shootings at Sandy Hook, the theater shooting in Colorado as well as both the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin and last night's attack. Hillary speaks of little children, church members and movie theater attendees. But what about our...
  • Chris Rock rants about the lack of African-Americans in baseball

    African-American participation in baseball is on the decline. This isn't a new development. Over the past couple years, a number of black athletes have addressed the issue.This isn't just an issue for other black players, it's becoming an issue for black fans, according to comedian Chris Rock. Rock gave his take on the alarmingly low rates of blacks in baseball for HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumble." (WARNING: NSFW Language).Rock's rant is humorous, obviously, but it also points out some discouraging facts about why fewer black people are playing, and watching, the game. The fact that Howard, a prominent...
