The interim CEO and president of USA Gymnastics, Mary Bono, has resigned just four days after she stepped into the role. “It is with profound regret, coupled with a deep love for the sport of gymnastics and respect for those who aspire to be great gymnasts, that I today tendered my resignation as the Interim CEO of USA Gymnastics,” said Bono in a statement. “My withdrawal comes in the wake of personal attacks that, left undefended, would have made my leading USAG a liability for the organization.” (Snip) In her resignation statement, Bono said she had taken issue with Nike’s use

Bono said Colin had a right to speak his mind, so why doesn´t she have a right to express her opinion?

It is my recommendation that no man or women get (Outside of USA Gymnastics) involved with the USA Gymnastics Teams.

The opportunity for a career ending Sexual Slander claim, or character defamation is to much of a risk.

Let the teams manage themselves, and any services they may need.

I believe Ms Biles should be the first to take this responsibility on for the USA Team.

President Donald Trump used the weekend´s winter storm to mock global warming on Twitter as he warned citizens to stay inside. ´Be careful and try staying in your house. Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold,´ the president tweeted Sunday morning. ´Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn´t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!´ he added.(Snip) Trump has famously said in the past that he doesn´t believe in climate change.

A new true-crime series poses the theory that at least 100 college-age men whose deaths were thought to have been accidents were actually murdered by a sinister gang of killers who spray painted smiley faces nearby. The documentary series, Smiley Face Killers: The Hunt for Justice, will begin on Saturday night on Oxygen. It features retired NYPD detectives who have spearheaded a private investigation linking the numerous, suspicious deaths of men around the country together and asking whether or not they were in fact the victims of murder. (Snip) The deaths began in 1997 and all bear striking similarities

Migrants can be seen marching toward Border Patrol agents by the hundreds, according to video obtained by ABC News. Smugglers dug a series of seven holes, only a few feet long beneath the steel border fence, with hundreds going beneath the wall and a smaller number clambering over it, according to CBP.

It happened Wednesday morning at South Gate Middle School. The LAUSD employee has been identified as Annette Arvizu, a senior technician who has worked for the school district for 18 years. Arvizu says Wednesday morning´s confrontation began when striking teachers wouldn´t let her leave due to prior tensions.

The Obamas´ best friend Valerie Jarrett has dished about spending her evenings relaxing and gossiping with Michelle and Barack on the Truman Balcony at the White House and her unfettered access to the former president and first lady in her upcoming memoir. The former senior advisor was even nicknamed ´Night Stalker´ by her White House colleagues who believed she would spend her nights at the family´s residence whispering into their ears and influencing policy.

A petition drive to win support to paint the Walt Whitman Bridge the multi-colors of the gay pride flag has been launched on social media. The petition was posted on Change.org with a goal of tallying 1,000 signatures. The 2-mile bridge connects Gloucester City, just south of Camden, with Philadelphia, and was opened in 1957. It is named for Walt Whitman, widely considered one of the most influential American poets. Whitman is also celebrated for prose about the beauty of the human body and his love for men which is depicted in some of his best-known works,

A dine-and-dash by wig-wearing Applebee’s customers in Clifton on Wednesday led to a high-speed chase through three counties after a cop investigating the theft got dragged 50 feet by a car, authorities said. The chase began about 6:30 p.m. after police were called to the Applebee’s in Clifton Commons on Route 3 East about a theft of services, according to police. Workers told police two women and two men ordered food at the restaurant and left without paying, authorities said. (Snip) An Applebee’s employee ran after them and grabbed one of the men not far

Now they cage him. A violent thug who’d been bailed out by a nonprofit—only to viciously choke and sexually violate a young woman in the Bronx a week after he was sprung—will stay behind bars for the next 18 years under a plea deal he took Wednesday. Lynneke Burris, 30, of Brooklyn, already had a lengthy rap sheet, including for violent muggings, and had been jailed on a new assault charge when The Bronx Freedom Fund posted his $1,000 bail on April 5. On April 12, he followed a 23-year-old high school English teacher into the elevator

Rep. Ed Case apologized Wednesday after he claimed at an event for Asian American and Pacific Islander voters that he’s an “Asian trapped in a white body.” Mr. Case, a Hawaii Democrat, sparked a social media backlash over the reported comment he made Tuesday at a Washington event billed as a “celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander members of the 116th Congress.” According to National Journal fellow Nicholas Wu, Mr. Case, who represents a majority Asian district in Honolulu, declared at the event, “I’m an Asian trapped in a white body.” (Tweet) Mr. Case apologized for any offense caused

Gillette´s controversial new ad tackling toxic masculinity has gotten mixed reviews, but even fans of the message are baffled to see the company discouraging sexism while continuing to charge more for its female shaving products. Known as the ´pink tax,´ the common form of gender-based price discrimination involves women being charged premium prices for items specifically marketed towards women while men pay less for virtually the same product.(Snip) One woman tweeted screengrabs from Target´s website to show that a refill pack of blades for one of Gillette´s popular women´s razors costs $2.50 more than its male counterpart.

Domnio’s Pizza has been legally required to makes its app and website fully accessible to the visually impaired following a years-long legal battle with a blind customer who was left unable to order a pie with personalized toppings through his iPhone. Guillermo Robles in a lawsuit filed back in September 2016 first accused the popular pizza chain of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act “for its failure to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible and independently usable” for those who are blind. The Americans with Disabilities Act, made law in 1990, says it is unlawful

Vox dubbed her “the most buzzed-about first-term member of the House of Representatives,” and The Atlantic credited her with an “unusually transparent approach to public relations.” She’s a former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and a self-styled democratic socialist.

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller´s office said the report was "not accurate."

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.

Protesters among the Women’s March in Washington, DC, Saturday called for free abortions for all, President Trump’s children to be caged, and for Trump to “drop dead.” The left-wing protesters showed support for feminism, prostitution, transgender issues, and immigration. Many demonstrators also showed serious hatred for the president. “Make America Great Again, and Drop Dead!” one sign read. (Photo) One protester called for Trump’s children to be caged.

President Trump outlined a plan to end the government shutdown in a Saturday afternoon address, offering three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients — including protection from deportation —and Temporary Protective Status awardees. He also offered $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, 75 new immigration teams to reduce the court backlog of 900,000 cases, which he called an ´impossible nightmare,´ in remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. In exchange, he said he wants $5.7 billion for the ´strategic deployment of physical barriers, or a wall,´ that he will use to put ´steel barriers in

Country music is the most American of musical idioms, alongside jazz. With a longer history than rock and roll or hip-hop, country has produced a powerful pantheon of memorable artists, albums, and songs. Growing up, I pretended not to like country music, even though it was the music I heard my dad listen to the most (while my mom turned me on to the incredible pop and rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s). Nowadays, I’ve shaken that youthful pretension and will admit to enjoying most types of country’s many subgenres. I also have to admit that compiling a list

Should you believe in a God? All the discord and vitriol in our culture boils down to how you would answer. Border walls, gay marriage, abortion, national defense, school choice -- where you stand on these issues and the myriad others comprising our daily tussle is for the most part defined by how you answer this question. Your answer, yeah or nay, draws a very hard line. The professional philosopher John G. Messerly begins with this question in his recent Salon piece, “Religion´s smart-people problem: The shaky intellectual foundations of absolute faith.”

Mueller, the wall impasse, the shutdown, the "postponement" of the SOTU – all are skirmishes in the undeclared war on President Trump waged by Democrats, the Deep State, and the compliant media. A decisive battle will be enjoined if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies or resigns this year. Nothing scares the left more than the prospect of Trump filling another seat on the SCOTUS with a young, fire-breathing constitutionalist who would join with Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh to form a conservative bloc for the ages. Pelosi and Schumer are praying that Justice Ginsburg survives and remains on the bench until

If someone walks up to you and bangs a drum in your face, are you guilty of harassing the drummer? You might be if you’re white and wearing a MAGA hat. Just a day after rushing to judgment about a BuzzFeed story that claimed President Trump had instructed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress — a story Robert Mueller’s own office subsequently debunked, the blue-checkmark media elite had a new instant narrative to promote. It was a tale perfectly tailored to liberal biases: white Catholic teenagers in MAGA hats had harassed an old and frail Indian veteran during the March
