    Picture a nude George Washington riding a white horse, wearing high heels and nothing but a coquettish pout on his lips. Now imagine a portrait of the scene hanging at the National Portrait Gallery in the nation's capital. That's not much different from what is happening in Mexico's most prestigious museum, Palacio de Bellas Artes, which is displaying a controversial portrait of Emiliano Zapata, one of the country's most beloved revolutionary heroes. The small painting by 32-year-old artist Fabián Cháirez, called "La Revolución," has provoked outrage and protests by a handful of Zapata's descendants and a farmers union. They are...

  • Is this the 'wokest' Pirelli Calendar EVER? Emma Watson, Kirsten Stewart and Claire Foy lead 2020 arty Juliet-themed spread... as the brand continues to distance themselves from topless models and mechanics' eye-candy

    n keeping with its new modern image, the Pirelli calender has enlisted the likes of rising talent Emma Watson and Claire Foy to front their 2020 calendar, which draws on a Romeo and Juliet inspiration. In the past, the Italian company heavily favoured images of nude models, with Kate Moss, Amy Schumer and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among a host of stars who posed naked for the annual tome. Now relying on moody shots, an arty finish, and a selection of A-list talent, the 2020 calendar - shot by 72-year-old famed fashion photographer Paolo Roversi - has been deemed the 'wokest' version...

    Q. What was your initial reaction to the 1619 Project? A. Well, I didn’t know anything about it until I got my Sunday paper, with the magazine section entirely devoted to the 1619 Project. Because this is a subject I’ve long been interested in I sat down and started to read some of the essays. I’d say that, almost from the outset, I was disturbed by what seemed like a very unbalanced, one-sided account, which lacked context and perspective on the complexity of slavery, which was clearly, obviously, not an exclusively American institution, but existed throughout history. And slavery in...

    Fr. James Martin touts blasphemous image of Jesus as a homosexual Warning: This article shows blasphemous images. November 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – In sending out a tweet about the Gospel reading from Friday’s Mass, Fr. James Martin, SJ chose to share a painting drawn from a series of blasphemous homoerotic works depicting the life of Jesus as if he were a gay man. “Gospel: Today Jesus drives the money-changers from the Temple (Lk 19). NT scholars say this was one of the main events that precipitated his execution,” tweeted the Jesuit. “Yet Jesus is not cowed by opponents. Another...
  • Washington Post Prints Blatantly False Article: 'Barack Obama, Conservative'

    The front of Sunday's Outlook section in The Washington Post is a complete spit take. There in bold type is the blatantly false headline "Barack Obama, conservative." David Swerdlick is an employee of the Post's Outlook section, so this isn't some freakish freelancer. At first glance, this article seems like an obvious ploy to explain away just how radical the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates are by comparison. Here's the thesis: “This is still a country that is less revolutionary than it is interested in improvement.” That remark helps explain why so many of the candidates’ proposals seem so...

    Ukraine, the 'borderlands' between Russia and 'civilized' Europe is on fire. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and Russia's access to the Mediterranean.The Maidan Massacre in early 2014 triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, spurred Crimeans to secede and join Russia, and sparked a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.Russia was portrayed by Western media as the perpetrator, and has been sanctioned and widely condemned as such. But was Russia responsible for what happened?Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in...

    This is a 90-minute documentary of the events in Ukraine from 2014 through to the election of Zelensky. IT IS NARRATED BY OLIVER STONE. I promise an eye-opening expose of almost everything we have read about the Obama WH behind the scenes as reported by John Solomon. (No need for The Hill to verify his reports now) I am frankly amazed this film even exists - since it is not the usual Ollie Stone topic, and it is so defendable of our own POTUS. It contains everything, planning the black ledger, Biden's instructions to Ukraine, framing Manafort, provoking the Russians...

Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, spoke Sunday after she accepted the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the ACLU of Southern California in Beverly Hills. She said: “When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information,...

    In between the first and second hour of the Democratic Party’s presidential debate in Ohio was a brief commercial from the Freedom From Religion Foundation calling for watchers to remember that secularism was a founding father plan for America’s government from the get-go and that those who say differently are, well — uninformed. Come on in guys, the fire’s warm. Ronald Prescott Reagan — the son of the late, great President Ronald Reagan — actually made the pitch for FFRF on national TV, wrapping with this mocking line: “I’m a lifelong atheist, I’m not afraid of burning in hell.” Yikes....

    "Where is Hillary?" That was the question then-U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice's mother asked when she told her she would be appearing on all five Sunday morning political shows on Sept. 16, 2012 — just five days after the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The plan was to appear in place of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at the White House’s request. "I smell a rat,” her mother said. “This is not a good idea. Can't you get out of it?" The exchange was detailed in Rice's new book, “Tough Love: My Story of...

    The hot gossip coming out of comic book shows this weekend from a number of prominent sources, is that in the summer of 2020 leading into 2021, DC Comics is planning to bring us a black Batman. Not Bruce Wayne, but someone else donning the cowl and cape. Who this new Batman will be, I don’t know. All I have been told is that it won’t be Duke Thomas, the young man previously teased as taking on the role of Robin and Batman to come. Marvel Comics has given us a black/Latino Spider-Man with Miles Morales, popularised in the Into...

    'There's a sense that conservatism is normal, and that white conservative men are the norm' MSNBC's AM Joy host Joy Reid on Sunday likened the coverage of President Donald Trump to the media's treatment of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Reid and her panel spent several minutes going after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and claimed he was helping Trump allegedly empower white nationalism, according to Newsbusters. After other panelists spoke, Reid jumped into the conversation to suggest McConnell was intentionally trying to destroy the United States for minorities before they gain power in the future....

We’re not sure which of the movie’s starry ensemble will take that role, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has now shared some fresh details about the mystery character, saying the following: “The Eternals will feature Marvel’s first openly gay character. He’s married and has a family and it’s part of who he is.” The full ensemble for The Eternals was revealed at D23 yesterday and we now know that Angelina Jolie is Thena, Richard Madden is Ikaris, Salma Hayek...

    Perhaps when you think of the founding of the United States, you think of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers. Now, the New York Times wants to "reframe" your understanding of the nation's founding. In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times has created something called the 1619 Project. This is...
