    The artwork hanging in the White House depicts the US president drinking with his Republican predecessors They say a picture is worth a thousand words, unless it’s a shredded Banksy, obviously, which is worth around Ł1m. But how to put a value on the majestic artwork Donald Trump was revealed to have gracing the wall outside the Oval Office, as eagle-eyed viewers of 60 Minutes spotted? So far, we know of two other “artworks” that Trump has: that Photoshopped picture of his inauguration crowd (dude, let it go), and the electoral college map. It is no wonder Trump wanted to...

    Actress Kristen Bell, who played the voice of Anna in Disney’s “Frozen,” argued there are plots points in the 1930s classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” that could be problematic for young children. Mrs. Bell, who has two young daughters with her husband, actor Dax Shepard, told Parents magazine that she points out those problems every time she reads the book with her children. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” she said she asks her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!” Ms. Bell, who is working...

    Actress Kristen Bell raises controversial questions about Snow White, consent, and it's all tied into the #MeToo movement. She may have forgotten that it's just a movie. When it's 2018 and nothing surprises you anymore, then it's no wonder a 38-year-old Kristen Bell is asking kids if they think it's weird that Snow White gets kissed in her sleep. Nevermind the fact that it's a fictional children's movie that kids love, but that doesn't matter. Bell just wants to be a nuisance and make people roll their eyes. Her bizarre point was made on the Parents.com website. To answer her...

    Although Kristen Bell absolutely loves reading to her kids before bed, she admits she's sometimes skeptical about the "lessons" her girls — 3-year-old Delta and 5-year-old Lincoln — are learning from Disney princesses. "[Story time is] truly my favorite part of the day," Kristen told Parents. "I glance away from the book and see their brains working while we're all cuddled up like meerkats." The 38-year-old actress says that despite playing Anna in Frozen, she has reservations about some of the messages in the older princess stories. This is a modal window.The media could not be loaded, either because the...

    Kristen Bell has made a thinly-veiled swipe at Melania Trump in her opening speech at the SAG Awards. Referencing how the show was using all-female hosts - and that she was the first on stage - Bell took an opportunity to mock the First Lady's campaign to stop cyber bullying. 'I think my first initiative as First Lady will be cyber-bullying, because I have yet to see any progress made on that problem quite yet.'

    I’m finding it kind of hard to keep up with all the rules about sex. On the one hand, it seems like we’re all supposed to be free to have sex with whomever we want, whenever we want, however we want (regardless of whether either party is married, knows one another, or intends to call in the morning). On the other hand, in order to actually have sex, we’re apparently required to obtain written consent — witnessed by a lawyer and signed in triplicate — or else it’s rape. So, are we having all the sex? Or aren’t we?It occurs...

Trump @realDonaldTrump Facebook has just stated that they are setting up a system to “purge” themselves of Fake News. Does that mean CNN will finally be put out of business? 6:48 PM · Oct 21, 2018 Trump’s tweet appears to have been sparked by a Fox News segment which aired Sunday morning highlighting the Facebook’s efforts to quell false political news heading into the 2018 midterm elections.

    Some conservatives have been peddling smears against missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in an effort to cushion President Donald Trump from blowback over his handling of the situation with Saudi Arabia, The Washington Post reported Thursday. Efforts to raise questions about Khashoggi have made their way to Capitol Hill, where a group of House Republicans have been circulating articles from conservative outlets that tie the missing journalist to the Muslim Brotherhood and Osama bin Laden, the Post reported. Among those circulating such claims is Donald Trump Jr., who last week retweeted an unsubstantiated claim insinuating Khashoggi is a terrorist sympathizer....

    This story originally appeared on the website LGBTQ nation under the headline DC Mayor will pay for 100 drag queens to run a footrace through city streets.If you saw that without knowing the source, you’d probably guess it was from a conservative site, likely because the title openly addresses the fact that the mayor is using taxpayer dollars to fund a footrace for drag queens, something that is certainly outrageous on many levels.The fact that this title is written glowingly, not for shock value, shows you exactly how great the ideological gap is between progressives and conservatives.Conservatives have the wild...

    President Donald Trump's administration is considering a policy that would eliminate transgender recognition by requiring individuals to be defined as male or female based on their genitalia at birth, according to a government memo obtained by the New York Times. The report has caused an uproar on social media Sunday (Oct. 21). The Department of Health and Human Services is aiming to establish a uniform definition of gender, determined “on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable," the report says. “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said President Donald Trump’s compliment of Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) for assaulting a reporter last May was “not OK.” Sasse said, “I believe the First Amendment is the beating heart of the American experiment. We need to have a president who celebrates the First Amendment and not pretends that beating up a reporter is OK. What you hear from Nebraskans who also tune out most of the rallies is that there’s a short-term, long-term thing going on and feel that the president’s rhetoric is short-term playful. I don’t think...

    From the occasionally used cortex department: Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Friday at a campaign event that the United States’ blueprint for beating global warming needs to be the same as the blueprint the U.S. used for defeating Nazi Germany in the 1940s. “So we talk about existential threats, the last time we had a really major existential threat to this country was around World War II,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And so we’ve been here before and we have a blueprint of doing this before.” “None of these things are new ideas,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “What we had was an existential...

    Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday night said the way the Allied Powers defeated the Nazis during World War II provides a blueprint for how the United States should defeat global warming. Ocasio-Cortez appeared at a climate change town hall in College Point, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, where she discussed her "radical" plan to tackle global warming, according to a clip first flagged by the Republican National Committee.

Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    I have no way of knowing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s character as a person, but assuming she’s nice, I’m very uncomfortable writing about her. The 28-year-old seems to be at the center of a prank being played by the Left, but I can’t decide whether the joke is on us or her. The self-proclaimed socialist wants all money to pay for all things for all people, with no discernible plan by which that could ever remotely be accomplished. In every interview, she smiles and nods as questions are posed. Then she opens her mouth and…dang it. Nevertheless, she continues to be promoted...

Talk of her too posh clothes has sparked a lot of talk in conservative circles lately.

    As many have said about socialism, the issue is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. Socialist and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is bound for Congress on an agenda that will cost trillions. $40+ trillion in the first decade alone for her left wing goodies of free college and single-payer health care, those are the two big items. In three decades, the price tag for American democratic socialism will hit $218 trillion. But remember, socialists, like the pigs in Animal Farm, they don’t have to sacrifice a thing. Is Ocasio-Cortez more of a limousine liberal than a...
