    America’s young people have veered to the left. Opinion pollsters tell us so. According to a November 2019 Gallup poll, “Since 2010, young adults’ positive ratings of socialism have hovered near 50 percent.” A March 2019 Axios poll concurs, saying that 49 percent of millennials would “Prefer living in a socialist country.” And The Hill puts it more strongly, citing an October 2019 YouGov Internet survey in a story headed, “7 in 10 Millennials Say They’d Vote for a Socialist.” Traditional liberalism still exists. In a March 2018 Pew Research Center study of Americans aged 22–37, 57 percent called themselves “mostly” or “consistently” liberal. But “mostly” or “consistently” liberal may not be enough for young voters. This was evident in the 2018 congressional elections. Ten-term incumbent congressmen Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) and Joe Crowley (D- NY) were as mostly consistently liberal as they come. And they were kicked to the curb in Democratic primaries by leftists Ayanna Pressley and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. What’s the matter with kids today? Nothing new. A large portion of the brats, the squirts, the fuzz-faced, the moon calves,...
    President Trump and ABC correspondent Jon Karl had a tense exchange on Thursday after the latter accused the president of lying to the American people about the threat posed by the coronavirus, and suggested that as a result, they might not be able to trust him as a leader. "Why did you lie to the American people?" Karl asked during a press briefing at the White House. "And why should we trust what you have to say now?" Audio released on Wednesday provoked a media firestorm as it included Trump telling veteran journalist Bob Woodward earlier this year that he wanted to downplay the threat of the virus in order to avoid panicking the American people. Karl equated Trump's stance with lying and used that word when asking the first question of the news conference. Trump immediately started shaking his head in the middle of Karl's question and panned the phrasing as "terrible." "Such a terrible question and the phraseology -- I didn't lie. What I said is we have to be calm, we can't be panicked." BRET BAIER REACTS TO WOODWARD BOOK...
    “Why did you lie to the American people? And why should we trust what you have to say now?” ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked President Donald Trump at a press briefing Thursday afternoon. After opening the briefing with a lengthy statement blasting his 2020 opponent Joe Biden, the president was confronted by the press corps on an audio recording of him admitting he deliberately downplayed the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. Karl’s very direct question kicked things off. “That’s a terrible question and the phraseology,” Trump replied. “I didn’t lie. What I said is we have to be calm. We can’t be panicked. He continued: These are a series of phone calls, mostly phone calls. Bob Woodward is somebody that I respect just from hearing the name for many, many years. Not knowing too much about his work, not caring about his work. But I thought it would be interesting to talk to him for a period of calls. So we did that. I don’t know if it’s good or bad. I don’t know if the book is...
    Former “Today” co-anchor Ann Curry remains unclear as to why she was fired eight years after NBC News showed her the door. “I still don’t really understand,” Curry told Elle magazine. “I know I did nothing wrong. I know I was good at my job." ANN CURRY, MATT LAUER TAKE SHOTS BACK AND FORTH AS SHE CLAIMS SHE REPORTED HIM TO NBC IN 2012  Curry, who was a fan favorite on NBC’s flagship morning show alongside now-disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer before an awkward, teary on-air goodbye in 2012 became an infamous sore spot for the prestigious "Today" franchise. After being removed from “Today,” she stuck around NBC for another three years as a reporter but was rarely used by the network. Curry’s departure was plagued with rumors that Lauer wasn’t her biggest fan, but he was dismissed for inappropriate sexual behavior in 2017. “They say where there’s smoke, there’s fire... you can read the tea leaves. But you know, I’m a fact-based reporter, so it’s hard for me to go out there, with something so close to the vest. I don’t know. I don’t know,” Curry told the magazine...

Stephanie Kirby saw her son Petre just three times in the past six months — visits that were possible only because he was in the hospital. Two of the hospital visits stemmed from Petre Kirby self-harming; the other was for a scheduled appointment. Outside of those painful and brief visits, Stephanie Kirby is otherwise unable to hug, comfort or see in person her 28-year-old son, who has an intellectual disability and functions at the level of a 3-year-old. Petre Kirby has depression and post-traumatic stress disorder stemming from abuse and neglect he suffered before Stephanie Kirby adopted him when he was 6. He lives at the Denton State Supported Living Center, where visitation has been restricted since March because of COVID-19. “I can understand COVID. I can understand what happened,” said Stephanie Kirby, who lives in Celina and acknowledges that safety precautions must be taken. But for her son, she worries “there's no way...
    In late March, the lieutenant governor of Texas, Dan Patrick, did the unthinkable. During a Fox News appearance, the Republican politician—and Trump water boy—said that America’s elderly should be willing to sacrifice their lives to help boost the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “No one reached out to me and said, ‘As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?’” said Lt. Gov. Patrick. “And if that’s the exchange, I’m all in… I just think there are lots of grandparents out there in this country like me.” The other Dan Patrick—legendary sportscaster and radio personality, formerly of ESPN and now The Dan Patrick Show—started getting notifications and texts galore. “Oh God,” Patrick tells The Daily Beast. “Whenever someone says, ‘Hey, you’re trending!’ I say, ‘What did he say now?’ We don’t think along the same lines politically.” So on March 24, Patrick took a break from his regularly scheduled programming to address the fracas. “I try...
    During a Fox News panel discussion of the blockbuster report from The Atlantic that claims President Donald Trump insulted and disrespected American war dead, The Bulwark’s Stephen Hayes called out Fox’s Mollie Hemingway for dismissing it as “not true” based on the story’s use of anonymous sources and vigorous White House denials. In an appearance on Special Report with Bret Baier, the panel noted the dueling narratives about the anonymously-sourced story, with the president and numerous other current and former administration officials claiming it was blatantly false, while several news organizations, including the Associated Press and Washington Post, backing the story, using anonymous sources as well. During her first turn at addressing the story, Hemingway flatly called the report “not true” based on “actual, contemporaneous evidence.” But moments later, Hayes, who is co-founder of the conservative outlet, The Dispatch, took issue with Hemingway’s stark skepticism about the report, pointing out Fox News’w own national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin reported on Friday afternoon that two top administration officials “confirmed to me key details” of The Atlantic story. “I have to say, look, I think it is important to point out,...
    Tucker Carlson asked acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf Monday why the feds aren’t acting quicker against people involved in the riots in major U.S. cities. Wolf spoke with Carlson following the violence in Portland over the weekend where one man — identified as a supporter of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer — was killed. Carlson questioned Wolf on whether he thinks DHS is getting enough help from the DOJ, asking, “Why haven’t we seen the leaders of Antifa and BLM arrested and charged for conspiracy under, say, RICO, like the heads of the Mafia families were?” Wolf said he’s spoken with Attorney General Bill Barr and that “they are working on it.” He talked about the number of arrests across the country of people at these riots, saying many of them were arrested in Portland. He added that the DOJ is targeting and investigating the head of these organizations’ and the people “paying for these individuals to move across the country.” “You’re not allowed to fund crime. Of course,” Carlson said. “If I do business with Iran, I go to...

    As chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam Schiff is attempting to meet the Supreme Court’s guidelines for gaining access to Donald Trump’s financial records. In a memorandum to committee members on counterintelligence risks posed by the president’s financial ties, he included this footnote: Based on the Committee’s review, it does not appear that Special Counsel Mueller issued any grand jury subpoenas to obtain the President’s financial records. The Committee also has reason to believe, based on its oversight work, that the FBI Counterintelligence Division has not investigated counterintelligence risks arising from President Trump’s foreign financial ties. That points to a question Schiff has been asking since the Mueller probe was completed in March, 2019.  Here’s how he explained it to the Washington Post‘s Philip Bump a few weeks after Mueller wrapped up his work : Just as a reminder, this all began as an FBI counterintelligence investigation into whether people around then-candidate Trump were acting as witting or unwitting agents of a foreign power. So it began as a counterintelligence investigation, not as a criminal investigation. Now obviously a criminal case —...
    Jacob Blake Sr, the father of Jacob Blake, spoke before a large Black Lives Matter rally on Saturday in Kenosha, Wisconsin sharing details of the emotional conversations he had with his bedridden son. “My son, the other day when I was in the hospital — give me a second,” Blake said as his voice began to crack. “He grabbed my hand — he closed my hand and he said, ‘Daddy, I love you. You know I love you.’ I said, man, listen, I love you more than anything in the world. He said, ‘I didn’t think you were going to come.’ What? Man, I got in the car, y’all, and drove all night.” Blake continued recalling, “Then my baby said, ‘Why did they shoot me so many times?’ I said, ‘baby, they weren’t supposed to shoot you at all.'” “I know — I know there’s a lot of parents out here in this crowd, you cannot imagine what it feels like to look at your baby, paralyzed from the waist down, shackled, shackled, where was my son going?

    Scientists fret FDA could OK vaccine before its fully tested 20 McDonalds Secrets Employees Dont Want You to Know The Great creator Tony McNamara on the shows biggest challenges and why he changed the ending Warning: This article contains spoilers for season 1 of The Great. © Provided by Entertainment Weekly Ollie Upton/Hulu; Inset: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images Tony McNamara, creator of Hulu's The Great, knows his show is a bit different. The often anachronistic, occasionally true 10-episode series follows the younger years of the eponymous Catherine the Great (Elle Fanning), the longest-ruling female leader of Russia, as she plots to overthrow her childish (and dangerous) husband, Emperor Peter (Nicholas Hoult). The show, which is up for two Emmys at this year's awards — Matt Shakman's directing of the first episode, and writing for McNamara — is frequently ludicrous, and McNamara had some trepidation about how it would be received. "I think when you know you're making something that's probably a little bit different, you don't know whether that difference is going to be good or the thing that makes...
    Meaghan Ellis August 26, 2020 0 Comments Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) weighed in on the shooting of Jacob Blake, Jr., at the hands of officers with the Kenosha Police Department as he suggested Blake should have yielded to officers. On Tuesday, the South Carolina senator attended a press conference where he announced the endorsement of the South Carolina Fraternal Order of Police. During the press conference, he was asked about Blake’s shooting which immediately led to more protests, riots, and public outcry over racial injustice and police brutality. Graham sympathized with police officers as he also raised questions about Blake’s involvement in the shooting. The Republican senator wonders why Blake didn’t “yield.” “I don’t know what happened there. Let’s find out. It’s dangerous being a cop,” Graham said on Tuesday. “I don’t know why the gentleman didn’t yield when he was asked to yield. I don’t know what the facts are.” .@LindseyGrahamSC on Jacob Blake being shot by police: "I dont know why the gentleman didnt yield when he was asked to yield."WALKING ???????? AWAY ????????

    The Republican National Campaign opened on Monday night, and Donald Trump Jr. was the featured speaker who effectively closed the evening. The president’s son predictably praised his father’s management of the coronavirus outbreak, even as polls show Americans believe he has handled the pandemic poorly. He also hit Democrats and their nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, in a remarkably dystopian way, saying, “They want to bully us into submission. If they get their way, it will no longer be the silent majority. It will be the silenced majority. This has to stop. Freedom of expression used to be a liberal value. At least before the radical left took over.” None of that got the lion’s share of the attention on Twitter, and elsewhere it seems. CNN’s Dana Bash reported receiving numerous texts from Republican sources asking about Don Jr’s watery eyes (the clip of which you can see above via CNN.) And in blue checked quarters of the social media platform instead was focused on what appeared to be Don Jr’s bloodshot eyes, and perhaps manic energy. Or...

    Getty Dak Prescott Dallas Cowboys defensive finish Tyrone Crawford used a part of his media availability Monday to defend his quarterback from what he considers unwarranted vitriol. Crawford conveyed after the crew’s first padded observe of coaching camp that Dak Prescott’s detractors — many simply amongst the fan base — are of the imbecilic selection. “The person’s a beast. Should you can’t see it, who cares,” he mentioned, by way of beat reporter Brianna Dix. “He does precisely what he’s informed to do, and he does it at a really excessive stage. I’m an enormous fan of Dak. Not lots of QBs that I can say that about, however Dak is certainly one of my favorites. He’s an expert on and off the sector, and he does his factor. Anyone speaking about him, I don’t actually assume they know soccer. The man will get the job finished. I can’t actually say way more.” Prescott bought the job finished in 2019, throwing for a career-high 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns. He added a...
    By BILL BARROW, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Joe Biden is pushing back at Republican assertions that he should take a cognitive test to disprove President Donald Trump’s claim that the Democrat isn’t fit for the Oval Office. Biden grew testy when CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee about the matter in a recent interview. “No, I haven’t taken a test? Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden said. He then told Barnett: “That’s like saying … before you got on this program, you’re taking a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” The former vice president, who is 77, also tried to turn the matter back around on the 74-year-old president in the latest jousting over the two men’s fitness for office. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden said, appearing to refer to Trump’s public discussion about his own clinical examinations that physicians often give...

    When I first got with my now husband, I was so deliriously besotted with him and our sex life, I shared an extremely intimate video of us with a few of my closest friends. My friends are used to me being open about sex and asking them all sorts in the interest of research for my books, but this was one step too far in the completely wrong direction. It was way, way, WAY TMI. Why did I do it? Mostly because I was happy and excited about my new relationship and wanted to share this with my friends. Was I wrong to do it? Hell, yes! I still have no idea what I was thinking. (OK, I do. Lust and love send you barmy at the beginning.) My friends were amused and indulged me but they were also shocked to be shown something so personal. I feel hot with embarrassment every time I think about it – and that was nine years ago.

    Despite what the current polling shows, voters view 2020 presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden as "too much of an empty vessel" to elect him into office in November, "Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host Pete Hegseth asserted Thursday. In an interview on "Varney & Co," Hegseth explained that while he thinks a Biden victory is possible, the odds of the former vice president returning to the White House are slim. BIDEN LEADS IN NEW SWING STATE POLL BUT MAJORITY SAY 'SECRET TRUMP VOTERS' COULD TILT ELECTION "I think there’s too much time. President Trump has accomplished too much," Hegseth said, calling Biden "completely incapable." "There might be people that don’t love how COVID-19 has been handled in every way, they don’t love, you know, the clashes in the streets so they are uncertain right now," he explained. "But when the contrast comes down to that month before the vote, and you say 'do you support law enforcement or not...do you believe in borders or not, do you think we should, you know, go back to school or should we stay shuttered,' I think the contrast will be so clear."

    Nobody has to fret about Tiffany Haddish — or her hair. Haddish sparked concern on social media final week when she shaved her head virtually bald, prompting followers to assume she “misplaced her thoughts.” Because it seems, the 40-year-old comic grabbed the clippers for a brand new film position. “I even have this film that I’m engaged on and my character has to put on wigs. So it could be simpler if I don’t have any hair on my head. The wig will match higher,” she was heard saying at Dave Chapelle’s socially distanced present in Ohio held over Fourth of July weekend. Haddish — who revealed her bald look on Instagram — is starring within the thriller “The Card Counter” with Willem Dafoe and Tye Sheridan. “Lower my hair!” the “Dangerous Journey” actress captioned the 26-minute video displaying off her new look. “I reduce all my hair off trigger I need to see my scalp.

This week, thousands of users reported experiencing bugs that rendered their devices useless, and what’s causing the issue remains unknown. According to several reports that flooded Reddit, ZDNet, Twitter, and Samsung’s own support forum, owners complain that their Blu-ray players become stuck in an endless start-up loop after being turned on. Others reported that their home theater systems have stopped responding to button commands, begun shutting down seconds after booting up, or started making weird buzzing noises as if trying to read a disk, even in cases where there wasn’t one inserted. Reports of these issues began cropping up on Friday, according to ZDNet, and have continued to pop up throughout the weekend. The issue doesn’t appear to be contained to one model either, as users have reported experiencing it with the BD-JM57C, BD-J5900, HT-J5500W, and other versions from Samsung, according to Digital Trends. One user posted a video of their Blu-ray player getting...
    (CNN)What caused the lake to turn pink? That was the question on people's minds across India after Lonar Lake in the state of Maharashtra suddenly changed hues in recent days.Experts believe that the change is likely due to either increased salinity in the water, the presence of algae or a combination of both -- like parts of Utah's Great Salt Lake or Lake Hillier in Australia.Gajanan Kharat, a local geologist, said in a video posted to Maharashtra Tourism's Twitter feed, that this has happened before, but was not as prominent."It's looking particularly red this year because this year the water's salinity has increased," he said. "The amount of water in the lake has reduced and the lake has become shallower, so the salinity has gone up and caused some internal changes."Read MoreKharat said that researchers are also investigating if the presence of red algae caused the color change. Samples are being sent to several labs, he said, and "once they have studied it we will be able to definitively say why the lake's water has turned red."The lake, which is...
    Reese Witherspoon says she isn’t afraid of death because of the religious way she lives her life. “I don’t have a lot of fear, that’s true,” the 44-year-old “Legally Blonde” actress recently told the LA Times. “There’s a time and a purpose and a place, and I don’t fear death, because I know there’s heaven. I know it.” Witherspoon said her confidence comes from her strong belief that her Episcopalian faith will ensure her entry into heaven. The actress, who attends church twice a week and grew up singing in her church choir, explained that she never questioned the idea of an afterlife. “I believe deeply that there’s a higher power — and I don’t know what that is — but I just don’t fear dying,” the “Big Little Lies” star said. “A lot of people have these repressive experiences with religion, and I didn’t. I felt this incredible acceptance and that everyone has a gift and we’re all God’s children and your purpose in the world is to find the gifts that God gave you.” Despite her lack of...
