    A federal judge dismissed Friday the $25 million defamation lawsuit filed against the Washington Post by Kentucky teen Nicholas Sandmann over the newspaper’s coverage of his viral encounter with an elderly Native American activist at the Lincoln Memorial. Senior U.S. District Court Judge William O.

    Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar believes illegal immigrants are entitled to free, taxpayer-funded abortions in America. On Monday, the Democratic representative argued that abortions are “medical care” and those crossing the border illegally deserve easy access to them, the Daily Caller reports. “No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care,” Omar wrote on Twitter. Under the tweet, she shared a Vox article that argues her radical pro-abortion position. “Immigration and reproductive rights are often treated as separate issues by the media and the...

One possible reason for the difference could be that “Top Gun: Maverick” is being produced, in part, by Tencent Pictures, a Chinese film distributor and production company. Tencent has co-financed films like “Wonder Woman,” “Kong: Skull Island,” “Venom” and the upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate.” China and Japan have long had a...

While the resolution doesn’t explicitly name Israel or the pro-Palestinian Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, she told media outlets that the resolution concerns the Jewish state. “We are introducing a resolution … to really speak about the American values...
