Conservative radio and television host Sean Hannity received the United in Purpose’s “Outstanding Impact Award” for his “transformational impact on American culture” at the organization’s inaugural awards ceremony, held Wednesday at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. (snip) “I want to accept this award on behalf of every irredeemable, deplorable American that clings to their God, guns, Bible and their religion and their country,” Hannity said.
A daredevil slackliner completed a nerve-wracking walk from the Eiffel Tower while suspended nearly 200ft above the River Seine.Trapeze artist Nathan Paulin balanced barefoot on the tiny rope while making the 2198ft crossing from the iconic Parisian landmark to Trocadero square on the other side of the river. Stomach-churning pictures show the 22-year-old - who holds several slacklining world records - dangling upside down as excited crowds watch from the street below. (Photos/Video) Mr Paulin inched along the wire while the Eiffel Tower loomed in the background and completed a world first for this length of crossing in an urban
Birmingham, ALABAMA — Despite efforts by Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones to pass himself off as a moderate, the politician has been deeply tied to radical groups financed by billionaire George Soros and has led efforts on behalf of those groups seeking to enact far-left, transformational policies. Jones’s personal website has urged supporters to get involved with Soros-financed far-left groups and he took leadership positions in numerous Soros-financed activist projects, including one seeking to fundamentally remake the U.S. criminal justice system into one that pushes progressive policies. He also took a significant role in an effort by a far-left legal
By now everyone is likely aware of the Fake News story run by CNN on Friday surrounding an email received by Donald Trump Jr. The email was part of the investigative evidence shared with the House Intelligence committee; and later leaked from within that committee to CNN – thereby initiating the false reporting on the content. The central issue in the CNN story was the date of an email. It was leaked from within the committee, and later reported by CNN, that the date was “September 4th, 2016”; a date convenient for a collusion narrative between Trump Jr and WikiLeaks.
On Thursday, alleged comedian Chelsea Handler tweeted a video in which an actress impersonating White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gives a makeup tutorial: (Tweet) Twitter user @danahaigh pointed out that it’s not cool for a feminist to mock another woman’s appearance: (Tweet) Handler hit back by calling Huckabee Sanders "pure evil": (Tweet) Just to put this in context: Chelsea Handler – the same woman who ardently supports Planned Parenthood and has given a platform to the organization’s president, Cecile Richards – is calling someone else "pure evil
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Sylvester Dawson will vote Tuesday in Alabama´s Senate election, but he´s hardly thrilled about the choices. "Honestly speaking, I´m not that excited about either one of them," Dawson said of Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore as he shaved a client at the barber shop he´s run for 23 years in Birmingham´s historic black business district. (Snip) That tepid enthusiasm is widespread among African-Americans in Alabama, concerning Democratic officials and operatives who know black voters are the core of the party´s base in this deeply Republican state. African-Americans make up about 27 percent of the state´s
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge Friday his investigators have already uncovered evidence of abuse in U.S. government’s surveillance practices. (Photo) As previously reported, the House Ethics Committee announced Thursday it cleared Rep Devin Nunes (R-CA) of claims he mishandled classified information after dragging it out for eight months.Rep. Devin Nunes walked away from the House Intelligence Committee Russia probe in April after he said in a press conference in March that Trump and his associates were unmasked after viewing intelligence reports. Nunes then went to brief the President on the information in the
Watching the world from Rome in Italy, I have been struck by how many things happening across the globe are radically different from our previous expectations and past analyses. In fact, they are so different that none of the patterns and models I have learned in the past can accommodate them.The more I have thought about the current period of rapid change, uncertainty and reaction our world is living through, the more I am convinced that we are closer to Alvin Toffler’s concept of future shock than any traditional pattern we have commonly understood and accepted.Human history is an ever-changing
Beer lovers have a sweet new brew to look forward to. Two Tampa Bay breweries have teamed up to use Krispy Kreme donuts in the brewing of their beers.Both Hidden Springs Ale Works and Arkane Aleworks in Tampa, Florida, have starting brewing up batches of the beer, with one batch made out of dozens of glazed donuts, while the other is made out of cream-filled donuts, according to the Tampa Bay Times.Hidden Springs Ale Works posted a picture of the brewing process on their Facebook last week, showing chunks of the donuts they’re mixing in with a Russian imperial stout
Two men were killed and at least seven other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday evening.Most recently, a man was found shot to death Saturday morning in the Fernwood neighborhood on the Far South Side. A neighbor found the man, thought to be between 40 and 45 years old, lying in the snow about 8:30 a.m. in the 10200 block of South State, according to Chicago Police.

BAGHDAD— After more than three years of combat operations, Iraq announced Saturday that the fight against the Islamic State group is over after the country’s security forces drove the extremists from all of the territory they once held. Iraqi and American officials warned, however, that key challenges remain despite the military victory.Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally announced the victory in an address to the nation aired on Iraqi state television Saturday evening.“Honorable Iraqis, your land has been completely liberated,” he said. “The liberation dream has become a reality. We achieved victory in difficult circumstances and with God’s help, the steadfastness
Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting
Facebook warned Breitbart News on Friday that the author of a completely factual story concerning the accuser of Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore needed to consult “additional reporting” from the liberal fact-checker Politifact. The story, published on Friday morning, detailed how Beverly Young Nelson, who accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager, admitted to adding “notes” to part of her yearbook, which she claims Moore signed. This revelation came despite Nelson claiming at her initial press conference alongside her lawyer Gloria Allred, that the entire yearbook document was solely Moore’s handwriting. In a message
MCALLEN, Texas — A South Texas jury sentenced a former Catholic priest to life in prison for the murder of a local school teacher and former beauty queen in 1960 when he was assigned to a local church. For more than 55 years, the priest managed to avoid facing any consequences in connection with the murder. (Snip) During the trial, testimony pointed to a deal between the district attorney in 1960 and members of the Catholic Church. As part of the agreement, Feit was expected to plead guilty to the assault and authorities would not investigate him in connection with the murder.
Given the length of time it takes to research and write a biography, it´s a pretty safe bet that Joe Hagan, the author of Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone, had no idea that his book would be published on the eve of a scandal that has engulfed Hollywood, the news media, and Washington, D.C. Since October, we´ve been in the pitchforks and guillotines French Revolution phase of the ‘60s sexual revolution, which Jann Wenner championed from the helm of Rolling Stone magazine just as much as Hugh Hefner did from the Playboy Mansion and
WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
In the late winter of 1964, Kitty Genovese was murdered in a residential part of Queens, New York. Newspapers claimed that 38 witnesses saw or heard the attack but wouldn´t help. Had people become so indifferent, so cold? This was the big question debated across the country and around the world. Experts endlessly discussed the "bystander effect" and the "Genovese syndrome." Later research suggested that a much smaller number were witnesses. It was the middle of the night, there was much confusion, and many people did hear shouts but couldn´t confirm what was happening. Maybe it was a domestic dispute.
President Trump on Saturday accused CNN of making a "vicious and purposeful mistake" when the network was forced to correct an erroneous news report related to the Trump/Russia probe.In an early morning tweet, Trump called on the news network to fire "those responsible," and commented that an ABC News reporter who was suspended for a separate erroneous report should be fired as well."Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday. They were caught red handed, just like lonely Brian Ross at ABC News (who should be immediately fired for his ´mistake´)," Trump wrote. "Watch to see if @CNN
A video posted by the conservative news site Campus Reform appears to show several members of the Fordham University College Republicans being kicked out of an on-campus coffee shop over wearing President Trump´s famous red "Make America Great Again" hats.In the video, the self-identified president of Rodrigue’s Coffee House, which is run by a student club, tells the students that she is removing them to ensure the safety of other customers, explaining their hats violate the shop´s policies.“I am protecting my customers,” the president says in the video. “We are your customers, we bought something,” replies a member of College
So-called “fact-checking” websites have objected to Breitbart News’ use of the term “forgery” to describe the yearbook that Roy Moore accuser Beverly Young Nelson and her lawyer, Gloria Allred, have used in attempting to corroborate Nelson’s allegation that Moore sexually assaulted her some 40 years ago.Politifact labeled the claim “Pants on Fire,” and Facebook has even attached a pop-up warning to a Breitbart article about the alleged forgery.On Friday, Nelson admitted that she had added “notes” to an inscription that she claimed Moore made in her high school yearbook. She still claims that Moore signed the yearbook, but admitted that
North County’s Lilac wildfire is now 20 percent contained as firefighters focus on hotspots and embers that could ignite islands of vegetation the fire hasn’t yet scorched. Many residents forced to evacuate continue to wait for permission to return home, with firefighting officials saying they’re reluctant to let residents go back because they could be forced to evacuate again if fires flare up. Some of the crews that worked overnight to suppress the 4,100-acre blaze are getting relief from new crews scheduled to join the effort this morning. The potential for winds to flare up and turn hotspots and embers into larger
Theresa May today crowned her church´s Christmas tree with a shoe in fitting tribute to her love of expensive footwear. The Prime Minister beamed as she placed the silver heel while husband Philip watched on in their Maidenhead church. Mrs May described shoes as ´the love of her life´ after famously chiding her colleagues for their reputation as ´the nasty party´ in a pair of leopard-print kitten heels in 2002. The tree she crowned was one of many in St Luke´s church which held its annual tree festival today. There was not a hint of tiredness about Mrs May who
In a piece titled "These are your white allies on Facebook," CNN enthusiastically introduces us to a group called "White Nonsense Roundup" (WNR). Essentially, the group of roughly 100 "white ally" volunteers take turns swooping in to save African American people (already suffering from the "emotional labor" of systemic racism) from social media arguments when issues of race arise. You know, because these white liberals are "woke" enough to recognize their inherent sin of whiteness and, apparently along with CNN, think people of color need white people to fight their social media battles for them. Talk about the soft bigotry
Cyndee Weston can barely remember the last time she didn´t have to switch health plans during an Affordable Care Act sign-up season. By her count, she has been on five plans in five years. Every fall, after she has spent months figuring out her insurance plan´s deductibles, doctor networks, list of covered drugs and other fine print, she receives notice that the policy will be canceled as of Dec. 31. (Snip) Under the market-based system set up by the ACA, individuals are encouraged to "shop around" each year to find insurance that better suits their medical needs and income. In
The decision by the NFL Compensation Committee on Wednesday to give Commissioner Roger Goodell a five-year contract extension that could top out at nearly $40 million a year is pure craziness. NFL owners are watching their brand implode and TV ratings for games plummet under a reckless commissioner – and they fail to see that Goodell is running the wrong game plan. Giving Goodell a huge compensation package like this – 90 percent of it tied to incentives – is like giving Hillary Clinton an award for outstanding email practices and honesty. Goodell’s contract extension is a slap in the face
