    Donald Trump is intimidated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's boyish good looks, according to former White House aide Anthony Scaramucci, who calls his former boss an 'orange fat blob' by comparison. The famously caustic investor who lasted just 11 days as White House communications director told Australia's ABC television network that Trump is a 'malignant narcissist' who 'needs the spotlight at all times.' Trudeau, 47, has parlayed a telegenic movie-star image and deft political softness into a quiet, steady global image – the polar opposite of Trump's bombast. Scaramucci, now on a one-man crusade to stop the U.S. president...

    The National Review ^ | September 7, 2019 | Katherine "Kat" Timpf
    A prominent liberal author has compared the red “Make America Great Again” hats to Nazi swastikas, and told “normal people” — that is, people who don’t support Trump — to stop wearing any kind of red hat, lest they start “making people scared.” Rebecca Makkai, who has been a finalist for both a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award, made the controversial comments on Twitter, according to Fox News. To be clear, Makkai really was talking about all red hats. In fact, she even specifically asked fans of sports teams that wear red hats — such as the Cincinnati Reds...

    Ever since the Bugatti Chiron was launched, with a 261-mph speed limiter, we've been desperate to know what it could manage if let off the leash. Now Bugatti has done that at the vast Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany; the car smashed both the production-car record and the 300-mph barrier. Factory test driver Andy Wallace, who previously set production-car records in both the Jaguar XJ220 and the McLaren F1, drove a slightly modified Chiron to a time, certified by the German TÜV organization, of 304.773 mph. The Chiron used was in what is described by Bugatti as "near production" spec,...

    During a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Friday, Joe Biden fabricated an emotional story about pinning a medal on a reluctant Navy captain in honor of his daring attempt to rescue a downed comrade in Afghanistan. Addressing a crowd of over 400, Biden recalled how the captain rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire to rescue the body of a fallen American soldier only to resist when then-vice president Biden tried to pin a Silver Star on his chest to honor his efforts. “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!’ ” Biden shouted, recounting the apocryphal event....

    Staring down the barrel of a semi-automatic rifle wasn't enough to spook a cigarette-puffing St. Louis man into giving up his valuables early Wednesday morning when an armed robber came into a local bar demanding money. Bartender Dustin Krueger was serving six customers around 12.30am Wednesday at Behrmann's Tavern on Maramec Street near S. Compton Avenue on the city's south side when the unidentified gunman stormed in wielding a huge, military-style gun. Soundless surveillance video of the incident shows most of the bar patrons quickly raising their hands and sprawling on the floor as the thief made his way through...

    DENVER — Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet will not qualify for the Sept. 12 presidential debate — but that doesn’t mean he will be ending his campaign. “Because of arbitrary rules cooked up in a back room at the DNC, Michael and other qualified candidates will be kept from the national stage,” according to a fundraising email Wednesday. “Just because the DNC is stopping Michael from participating in the next debate doesn’t mean this campaign is done fighting for the future our children deserve.” Bennet recently blasted the Democratic National Committee for its debate requirements.

    President Trump’s sole Republican primary challenger is calling on the commander-in-chief to step down. “If Donald Trump is an American patriot, he should resign from office,” former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld wrote in an op-ed Wednesday appearing in The Bulwark, a conservative news and opinion website. Among the site’s founders is conservative commentator Bill Kristol, one of the leaders of the "Never Trump" movement.

    Former Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) does not think it is a good idea for Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) to launch a primary challenge against President Donald Trump. “No, I wouldn’t — I wouldn’t bother if I were him,” Boehner replied when asked about a possible challenge in a Wednesday interview on NBC host Chuck Todd’s podcast Chuck Toddcast, according to Politico Playbook. The former House Speaker noted the president still remains popular nationwide going into the 2020 election, putting him in prime position to fight off any potential primary challenger. “There’s this 38 percent of America that’s very big supporters...

    France proclaims trees should have rights April 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – “A tree is a living organism whose average lifespan is far longer than that of a human being. It should be respected throughout its life and have the right to develop and to reproduce freely, from its birth to its natural death, whether it be a town tree or a country tree. A tree should be considered as a subject of law, including when laws regarding human property are involved.” This astonishing proclamation of rights is perhaps the most extreme manifestation of anti-speciesism to date, way beyond the demands...

"For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not," she warned. "So, understand that the internet documents everything." "For those of you who are trying to mock and delay this moment, I mean, I just feel bad for you. I pity you for your role in history right now,"...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom boldly declared his state a model for the nation Monday but said its leaders have failed to rein in the soaring cost of living and stem inequalities that are making it harder for people to achieve what he called the "California dream." "We face serious challenges — some that have been deferred for too long," Newsom said in his inaugural address. "We face a gulf between the rich and everyone else — and it's not just inequality of wealth, it's inequality of opportunity." Still, Newsom said it's California that can best defend U.S. values in the...

    Actor Jim Carrey doubled down on his criticism of President Donald Trump on a panel at Vulture Fest Sunday, describing Trump as a “melanoma” and accusing Republicans of “raping” America’s system of government. “These are not people you can deal with. You cannot be bipartisan with a criminal. A rapist needs to be removed, not negotiated with. These people are raping our system, they’re destroying it right in front of us,” Jim Carrey said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “These people have to be removed from our system because they’re bad for us,” Carrey continued. “Trump is a melanoma, and...

    I liked it when the howling loonies started pounding on the bronze doors of the Supreme Court like Brett Kavanaugh was totally going to open them up and invite the freaks in to air their many stupid grievances over a hot cup of Too Damn Bad. I also liked it when Lindsey Graham dissed that silly shrieking harpy as he adjusted his tie and smirked. And I liked it when Jesse Kelly channeled Andrew Breitbart by heading down to the protest with a t-shirt that said “Hands Off My Uterus.” I liked a lot of things about last week, and...

    A House Democrat on the intelligence committee is suggesting that the White House and top aide Jared Kushner maintained a “hit list” of dissidents for the Saudi kingdom to assassinate. Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas, who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said the supposed list included murdered Saudi dissident/journalist Jamal Khoshoggi. The Saudi Arabia ruling family admitted Friday its operatives had killed Mr. Khoshoggi inside its consulate in Istanbul during what they described as a brawl. Mr. Castro, appearing on CNN, floated the conspiracy that President Trump’s White House target Mr. Khoshoggi in alliance with Crown...

Warren’s thread of 20-plus (and counting) tweets began at about 5:30 p.m. ET, where she attempted to both insult President Trump and defend herself.

    I was in the Senate gallery this afternoon when Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed. You would have thought I was at an exorcism in an insane asylum. Perhaps you were watching on television and heard the disruptions, though you certainly didn’t see them. The attenuated audio probably didn’t catch the frightening, incoherent shrieking – including the lingering screaming and howling as they were being dragged down the hallways outside the gallery. If there was any doubt that the opposition to Kavanaugh was unhinged, uncivil, disruptive, rude, and borderline nuts, my experience in the gallery made it clear. The first example...
