    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suffered a lengthy coughing spell Tuesday in an interview with Sirius/XM radio talk show host Howard Stern. After discussing the 2020 campaign race, and the difficulties of social media, Clinton started coughing as Stern continued speaking. As she continued coughing, Stern paused and said, “I feel like I need to give you a cough drop or something … you OK?” “I got one,” Clinton croaked. Stern recalled her coughing was also the subject of speculation during the campaign, leading people to “speculate about her health.” “I was dying,” Clinton said in a sarcastic raspy...

    Things turned spicy on Channel 9 this morning during a heated debate about Australian tennis legend Margaret Court. The panel on Sports Sunday was discussing how Tennis Australia (TA) handled its announcement yesterday it had invited Court to attend the Australian Open as a special guest to mark the 50-year anniversary of her incredible 1970 Grand Slam, when she won all four majors. In the same statement yesterday, TA also delivered Court a stinging backhand by saying it does not agree with her views that gay marriage should not be legal, which have “hurt and demeaned many in our community”....

    The United Nations may resort to military action against states that defy its mandates on global climate action, according to Ole Wćver, a prominent international relations professor at the University of Copenhagen. In an interview with ABC News in Australia, Professor Wćver cautions that what he sees as “climate inaction” might draw the U.N. into considering other means to ensure its goals are met, even if that leads to global armed conflict. Professor Wćver says more resistance to change could potentially threaten democracy although the U.N. would counter that the end justified the means in much the same way countries...

    New cases and deaths from anal cancer rose dramatically in the United States in recent years, according to a new study. With an increase of nearly 3% per year, anal cancer is one of the most rapidly rising causes of cancer incidence and mortality. But more widespread screening and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination could reverse this trend. “It is concerning that over 75% of U.S. adults do not know that HPV causes this preventable cancer,” lead author Ashish Deshmukh, PhD, MPH, of the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, said in a press release. “Educational campaigns are needed...

    The American Civil Liberties Union celebrated International Men’s Day by proclaiming its support for “men who get their periods” and men “who get pregnant and give birth.” The iconic civil-liberties organization used the awareness event, which takes place annually on Nov. 19, to wade into transgender issues and the redefinition of what a “man” is. “Men who get their periods are men,” ACLU’s official Twitter account told over 1.7 million followers Tuesday. “Men who get pregnant and give birth are men. Trans and non-binary men belong. #InternationalMensDay”

    November 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The transgender movement’s tactics are predictable, but it is still breathtaking to watch biology get transformed into hate speech so swiftly. First, the LGBT movement pushed for the acceptance of their chosen terminology. Progressive politicians, the media, and the entertainment industry climbed on board without a single question. With the framework in place and the premises legislated, the real work began: Rooting out heretics. (snip) According to the trans inquisitors, McCarthy-Calvert had been “trans exclusionary” for saying that only women had babies, as in their view, men can give birth, as well. They also objected...

    What could possibly go wrong? A National Health Service (NHS) trust in the UK has announced that it will deny treatment to patients it deems are ‘racists’ or ‘sexists’. No, this is not the Onion. The North Bristol NHS Trust said that “threatening and offensive language,” as well as “racist or sexist language, gestures or behaviour” and “malicious allegations” would all be punishable offenses. Patients who commit such an infraction will be subject to a “sports-style disciplinary yellow card and then final red card in which treatment would be withdrawn as soon as is safe.” “We have staff from many...

    This hothead is going to have to pray for a lot of forgiveness. A crazed woman wielding a stiletto heel and shouting “f–k your God” bashed an elderly singing subway preacher in the head on a train in Manhattan, according to disturbing video released Friday. The 79-year-old victim was preaching aboard a southbound No. 2 train near the 42nd Street-Times Square station at around 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, when the woman removed her high heel and menaced him with it as if it were a weapon, according to cops and video of the incident.

    The Washington Nationals will head to the White House Monday to meet with President Trump following the team's historic World Series victory. But pitcher Sean Doolittle won't be going. "There's a lot of things, policies that I disagree with, but at the end of the day, it has more to do with the divisive rhetoric and the enabling of conspiracy theories and widening the divide in this country," Doolittle said in an interview with The Washington Post. "At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my...

    Every Columbus Day, liberals insist that the story of European colonization is a simple narrative of good versus evil: horrible Europeans came upon innocent Native Americans, introducing slavery, exploitation, and oppression. A massive archaeological discovery blows one of many gaping holes in this narrative. While Europeans did indeed do horrible things, the natives weren't exactly innocent. Two hundred and fifty skeletons of children between the ages of 4 and 14 have been unearthed at Huanchaco, Peru, in what experts say is likely the world's largest child-sacrifice site. Huanchaco is a site of the Chimú culture (1200-1400), a predecessor to the...

    Joe Scarborough turns his lonely eyes... to Fox News?? Looks that way. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough dreamed of a scenario in which Fox News would turn against President Trump, thus bringing down his presidency. Scarborough analogized it to a "Cronkite moment." That was the time in 1968 when CBS News anchorman Walter Cronkite essentially declared the Vietnam War unwinnable. LBJ was reported to have said at the time, “if I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost Middle America.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The process could work on the gas at any concentrations, from power plant emissions to open air. A new way of removing carbon dioxide from a stream of air could provide a significant tool in the battle against climate change. The new system can work on the gas at virtually any concentration level, even down to the roughly 400 parts per million currently found in the atmosphere. Most methods of removing carbon dioxide from a stream of gas require higher concentrations, such as those found in the flue emissions from fossil fuel-based power plants. A few variations have been developed...
