  • Mayor of DC to Pick Up the Bill for Halloween Drag Queen Footrace

    The Activist Mommy ^ | October 16, 2018 | The Activist Mommy
    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...
  • How to fool the ‘biased academic left’

    The Blaze ^ | October 15, 2018 | Glenn Beck
    On Monday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn was joined by author and mathematician Dr. James A. Lindsay to discuss a series of fake “grievance studies” that he and cohorts Peter Boghossian and Helen Pluckrose penned in order to test the extent of political bias in left-wing academic circles. Lindsay, Boghossian (an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University), and Pluckrose (editor-in-chief of Areo Magazine) wrote an op-ed for USA Today titled, “From dog rape to white men in chains: We fooled the biased academic left with fake studies” in which they spelled out the purpose, method...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | October 11, 2018 | William A. Jacobson
    So many lines have been crossed by Democrats and their supportive media, IÂ’m not sure there are any lines left. Stephen Miller, advisor to Trump, is hated by Democrats and other leftists because of his role helping elect Trump and MillerÂ’s strong positions on immigration. MillerÂ’s condo building has been the subject of protests. The New York Times investigated MillerÂ’s high school and college years: Mr. MillerÂ’s journey to this point, outlined over dozens of interviews with friends, classmates and current and former colleagues, is a triumph of unbending convictions and at least occasional contrivance. It is a story of...
  • Soros Elevator Activist Illegal Alien Ana Maria Archila Made $178,071 in 2016 as a Far Left Activist

    10/06/2018 10:01:12 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 49 replies
    The women who were screaming at Senator Jeff Flake in the elevator are Soros-funded astroturfed activists. Their names are Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila. ***** They celebrated after Flake caved! And they raised over $30,000 on CrowdPac for their elevator antics. ***** Ana Maria Archila (on right in picture above) is from Colombia where she says she was sexually abused as a child. She was screaming at Jeff Flake in a elevator on Capitol Hill. Earlier this week, thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we discovered Ana Maria Archila is an illegal alien. So we now have illegal alien Soros-paid activists...
  • Editorial: Mobile hygiene unit in Oroville a creative step (Homeless crisis in California)

    The Enterprise-Record ^ | September 26, 2018 | The Editorial Board
    Working on a complex issue often takes creativity. When it’s an issue like homelessness, every angle is worth exploring. So when the nonprofit Oroville Southside Community Improvement Association Inc. asked to partner with the city on its Haven of Hope on Wheels project, which includes a trailer outfitted with showers, toilets and laundry facilities, the Oroville City Council obliged. The council sensibly saw the project for what it is — another way to help the disenfranchised while keeping them from disrupting businesses or taking baths, doing laundry and going to the bathroom along rivers and in parks. The council voted...

  • Judge suggests Trump’s tweet about Stormy Daniels was ‘hyperbole’ not defamation

    The Hill ^ | September 24, 2018 | Michael Burke
    A federal judge on Monday said that a tweet by President Trump at the center of Stormy Daniels's defamation lawsuit against Trump was "rhetorical hyperbole" rather than defamation. “This appears to be rhetorical hyperbole by a public official involving a public figure,” U.S. District Judge S. James Otero said at a hearing Monday, according to Bloomberg News. Otero didn't issue a ruling Monday, but Bloomberg and the Associated Press reported that his comments could signal he is leaning toward throwing out the lawsuit because Trump's tweet was protected speech. Daniels, the adult-film star, filed the suit in April over a...

    The total cost of the May 2015 Twin Peaks shootout has run into the solid seven figures and the state, at least so far, has little to show for its effort, all the while realizing the final cost is not yet calculated for the defendants and in some cases may never be. McLennan County reports $1,317,835.96 in total identifiable costs related to Twin Peaks. Francis Bartlett, CPA, first assistant county auditor in McLennan County, said the county has received $914,058.07 in the form of grant reimbursements from various sources, leaving a net cost to date of $403,777.89. That figure does...

  • Obama repeatedly stutters, talks about himself 79 times while campaigning for candidates

    There were times during a Thursday rally Barack Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself, even though he was supposed to be talking about other people. There were other times he could barely talk at all. During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama repeatedly talked about himself, despite the candidates sitting behind him. Several times, he stuttered as he attempted to attack President Trump and the success of recent Republican initiatives.
  • Why Some Women Are Getting Tattoos Of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Face

    Refinery 29 ^ | April 27, 2018 | Natalie Gontcharova
    The documentary film RBG, in theaters May 4, portrays Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a hard-nosed workaholic with more than a few wins for women's rights under her jabot. But it also highlights, rather pointedly, her influence on The Youths. In several scenes, fawning would-be attorneys run up to her to ask for her autograph or take a selfie. The adoration has extended to pop culture, and the film makes a mountain out of things the sober Supreme Court Justice hasn't historically paid a whole lot of attention to: memes (obviously, Notorious RBG), SNL, and most certainly not tattoos. While flattered...

    The Sun of a Beach Mouse If you own a house on the beach on Perdido Key you just got screwed to the wall by Escambia County in sunny Florida, sometimes referred to as LA (Lower Alabama). It’s a shame how the liberals have begun to pollute a once conservative enclave in Sunny Florida. Escambia County is proposing a non-ad valorem (NAV) levy on the rich residents of Perdido Key for the protection of the Perdido Key Beach Mouse. It’s basically a soak the rich levy and it’s illegal. They could use tax revenue but in Florida local governments have...

    The Dangers of Scientism By Philip Cottraux “Science, like other outmoded systems, is destroying itself. As it gains in power, it proves itself incapable of handling the power. Because things are going very fast now…it will be in everyone’s hands. It will be in kits for backyard gardeners. Experiments for schoolchildren. Cheap labs for terrorists and dictators. And that will force everyone to ask the question - ‘What should I do with my power?’ Which is the very question science says it cannot answer.” -Michael Crichton, Jurassic Park****** Atheists often accuse religious people of being anti-science. They cite past examples...

    Former President Barack Obama visited The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Friday to accept the school’s ethics in government award, and to offer his take on “the state of our democracy.” And while Obama found plenty of time to denigrate Republicans for allegedly stoking fear during these “dangerous” and “extraordinary times,” he also dedicated a lot of his speech to patting himself on the back for everything from the improving economy to supposedly helping to heal the country’s racial divisions. All told, the former president referred to himself – I, My, Me – more than 102 times in about 64 minutes,...

The company’s head of accounting, Dave Morton, and head of human resources, Gaby Toledano, said they were leaving the company, which has been placed at the centre of a string of controversies by its maverick CEO. Morton, who joined the company just one month ago, said he...

    A BOTTLE containing a mystery liquid dating back to the time of Jesus Christ has been hailed as a “unique” discovery after being unearthed in Russia. The 2,000-year-old artefact was uncovered on the site of the Phanagoria city, which was founded in the 6th century BC. The ancient city was the largest Greek settlement on the Taman peninsula in the present-day Krasnodar Krai region of Russia. The extraordinary object was discovered in the grave of a warrior in the Eastern Necropolis of the city. It is filled with a mystery liquid which has not been identified...........
