Does Anyone Care About International Women’s Rights?
“Mom taxi” is a term that has been used in the U.S. for years to describe a vehicle a mother uses to drive her children. Americans take for granted that driving their children is a task a woman can perform.
Until Sept. 26, women in Saudi Arabia could only dreaming of sitting behind the wheel. That’s because the nation prohibited women drivers, the only nation to do so, but starting in June 2018, Saudi women will be able to obtain a driver’s...
“Last night we talked about starting a revolution with Judge Moore's victory,” Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist and Breitbart News executive chairman, said as he introduced Roy Moore.
Moore was the victor of Alabama’s Republican runoff election Tuesday, beating Sen. Luther Strange who had been endorsed by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“You are going to see,” Bannon continued, “in state after state after state, people that follow the...
The Trump administration won a minor victory when Justice Anthony Kennedy issued a temporary order, saying a 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling could be put on hold while the Supreme Court considers the issue of a travel ban.
The appeals court had ruled that the administration must admit refugees if a resettlement agency took care of their basic needs. It also said the definition of who was exempt from the ban was too narrow.
This meant as many as 24,000 refugees would be admitted.
Not many 70-years-olds are as polarizing as Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA). The former Reagan speech writer is in his 15th term in the House of Representatives, and his views are on the fringe. He believes climate change is a hoax and so were the Charlottesville, Va. riots.
Most recently, Rohrabacher called White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in an attempt to negotiate a pardon of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange or “something like that.”
WikiLeaks has been under investigation since 2010 when...
Poisoning by hemlock?
Sounds like a way to murder someone in the Middle Ages.
When a TMZ reporter recently asked celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain what would be on the menu if he were catering a dinner between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, he said hemlock — and laughed.
Hemlock is extremely toxic. It kills via respiratory failure, affecting the nerve impulses to the muscles. It is so poisonous people have died after eating animals that have consumed hemlock.
At least 30 people were injured in the Parsons Green tube attack in London this past week. This horrific event could have been much worse, too, had the homemade bomb worked as the terrorists intended.
“I think it was more a premature detonation than anything else,” terror expert Will Geddes told the Daily Mail. “This could have been a lot worse. It could have killed a significant number of people.”
UK Security Minister Ben Wallace confirmed that the device, placed on a subway carriage car dur...
Meteorology is the only profession where you can be wrong the majority of the time and still keep your job. Such was the case with Hurricane Irma and the disaster predictions.
Cost estimates from before the storm hit places damage for the U.S. at $200 billion. This has since been revised down to $58 billion — still expensive, but no longer the costliest storm in the nation’s history. That distinction will still belong to Hurricane Katrina, which caused $160 billion in damage in 2005.
You'll read a lot about the fake news media's spun narrative about economic recovery and a booming stock market. You'll hear the delusional rally cries from pundits that swear "it's different this time."
But don't be fooled. If you read in between the lines and do enough digging you'll find we're on the verge of another financial crisis. There's too much leverage — and way too much debt. How much? Well, the nation’s debt surpassed $20 trillion for the first time, the Treasury Department said....
Whether you love him or hate him, there's no debating this: President Donald Trump's approval rating — which went up slightly to 38 percent as of this week according to the latest Gallup poll — is much higher than that of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In a poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, 18 percent of Kentuckians approve of the job McConnell is doing, while 44 percent said they would vote for his opponent if McConnell were up for re-election today.
Beginning of the feud
What comes to mind when you hear “World War III”? Cyberterrorism? North Korea? Nuclear annihilation? Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk thinks about artificial intelligence.
It’s not that Musk is fearful of technology. He’s the CEO of both electric car company Tesla and commercial spacecraft developer SpaceX. Whether you agree he is a successful businessman or not — given how his companies just ooze money — he’s built his name and reputation on technology.
No, Musk is fearful of artificial in...
Not that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has a big ego or anything, but he thinks there should be a parade held in his honor. He’s that great of a mayor. Apparently.
Yes, it'd probably be appropriate to insert the confused thinking-face emoji here.
“When I think about how crime’s gone down for...
The echoes of prayer were shattered this past week when ISIS attacked the Shi'ite Imam Zaman mosque in Kabul, Afghanistan.
The attack began when suicide bombers placed themselves outside the mosque’s front gate. One blew himself up, signaling the other gunmen to enter the mosque and open fire. Me...
Most technology has a dark side. This is the case with StingRay tracking devices that allow law enforcement to dispatch a signal that prompts all cell phones in the area to transmit data, allowing the police access to calls, messages and call logs. The devices are designed to apprehend suspects. ...
The Iraqi city of Tal Afar has been fully liberated from Islamic State militants, also known as ISIS and Daesh, Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said.
"To Daesh criminals we say: Wherever you are, we will come to liberate and you have to choose only death or surrender," the prime minister sa...
Who is the most divisive person in the United States? The answer depends on what side of the political spectrum a person falls. For those on the left, blame falls solely in the hands of President Donald Trump.
He is the most divisive president in our history,” former Sen. John Danforth (R-MO) rec...
