    George Lopez got into a physical altercation with a man who reportedly was harassing him with pro-Trump rhetoric at a Hooters in New Mexico. The comedian was in Las Cruces Sunday to film the upcoming faith-based movie “Walking with Herb” when TMZ, which obtained video of the incident, reported that the unidentified man started hectoring him with comments about his politics and yelling “MAGA.” In the video, the man appeared to be lying in wait inside the Hooters when Lopez walked up. “Here comes my boy, George,” he said.

    Who incited David to take the census in 2 Samuel 24, God or Satan? Why was God so angry at David for taking the census? Why did God punish the Israelite people when it was David who ordered the census?" Answer: Second Samuel 24:1 says, “Again the anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and he incited David against them, saying, ‘Go and take a census of Israel and Judah.’” The parallel account of the incident surrounding the census, however, reveals it was Satan who incited David to take the census: “Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to...

    In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing "clearly false" affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" and "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a...

    Hillary Clinton appears to have been unharmed when the Secret Service vehicle she was riding in was involved in a crash. The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate was headed to a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey in Jersey City on Tuesday night. The vehicle pulled into a parking garage, made a left turn and hit a concrete crossbeam. Clinton emerged from the van and walked to the fundraiser, where she was the featured guest. The Secret Service says no injuries were reported, and the Jersey City Police Department is investigating. In its accident report, police say the...

    Ancient Origins ^ | July 25, 2017 | Theodoros Karasavvas
    By combining two imaging techniques (visible hyperspectral imaging and x-ray fluorescence), a diverse team of Northwestern University researchers has developed a new technology that gives access to medieval texts hidden in parchment re-used for ancient book-bindings, as Live Science reported. The new technology is seen by researchers as truly innovative, as it can be used to help decipher the text under the surface of other bookbinding materials. "For generations, scholars have thought this information was inaccessible, so they thought, 'Why bother?'" the study's senior researcher, Marc Walton, a senior scientist at the Northwestern University-Art Institute of Chicago Center for Scientific...

    A Bronx man trying to enjoy lunch at his favorite pizza joint had his face slashed and his eye socket broken with what he described as “a Mike Tyson punch” in an unprovoked bias attack, the victim told The Post. Chris Bilcik, 59, said he was sitting alone in Ray’s Pizza on East 138th Street on Oct. 6 when the unhinged man walked in, grabbed a slice of his own, and launched into a racially charged diatribe for no apparent reason.

The feud began with Sexton quote tweeting CNN on Warren, saying, “It’s a good thing CNN wasnt blatantly complicit in the massive, unforced error Warren pulled yesterday. That would’ve been really embarrassing. Oh, wait a minute.”

    Red Double of the Second Class The goodness and kindness of God our Savior hath appeared to all men. It would seem that the third Evangelist, a disciple of St. Paul, had purposed setting forth this word of the Doctor of the Gentiles; or may we not rather say, the Apostle himself characterizes in this sentence the Gospel wherein his disciple portrays the Savior prepared before the face of all peoples; a light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of … Israel. St. Luke’s Gospel, and the words quoted from St. Paul, were in fact written...

    Reddit CEO Steve Huffman on Wednesday detailed the "war room" the company has created to fend off foreign misinformation campaigns on the fifth most-visited U.S. site, saying the collaborative effort has helped the company address the issue. Huffman told NBC News that the company has multiple teams dedicated to addressing the spread of misinformation and protecting the site from manipulative behavior. The look inside the "war room" comes just a few weeks ahead of the midterm elections, which experts have warned are a target for foreign entities attempting to influence American voters. "They’re not simple issues," Huffman told NBC. "The...

    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...

    Sen. Claire McCaskill's (D-Mo.) campaign is asking her Senate race opponent, Attorney General Josh Hawley (R), to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate whether a right-wing group violated state laws in secretly recording and publishing a video from inside the senator's campaign headquarters. KMBC News in Missouri reported that McCaskill intends to pursue legal action after the conservative group Project Veritas secretly recorded staffers talking about how they handle Planned Parenthood donations. McCaskill's campaign did not comment Wednesday night on the possibility of legal action, but pointed to a statement criticizing Hawley for his inaction after the video was released....

    On October 16, a New York state trial court judge removed the Republican and Conservative nominees for Judge of the State Supreme Court from the November ballot. See this story. The basis was that the nominating conventions for this office, for these two parties, violated state law. The ruling says the parties may convene a new convention and re-nominate. New York elects State Supreme Court Justices from districts. This incident concerns the Fifth Judicial District, which, this year, is electing four justices. Although the Republicans have been removed from the Republican line and the Conservative line, they are still on...

    Letters spelling out “Trump Place” on the facades of an Upper West Side building will be pried off by workers Thursday, following a vote from the condo’s board, according to reports. Residents at 200 Riverside Blvd., a 46-story building between 69th and 70th streets, fought for the right to tear the Trump name from their building following the 2016 election, with many people wanting to distance themselves from politics, The New York Times reported. Eric Chung, a longtime resident whose family owns two units in the building, told The Times that removing the letters “makes a very powerful statement.”

    There’s nothing the American right likes better than skewering the crazy libs, and oh boy do they have some content on their hands today. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, three leftist scholars decided to prank academia by submitting satirical papers to very real academic journals in the topical vicinity of something called “grievance culture.” As it turns out, they were phenomenally successful. Read, if you will, the description of this paper by “Helen Wilson” about rape culture among dogs, and note that it was actually published in a journal called Gender, Place, and Culture: The author admits that...
