    No amount of alcohol, sausage or bacon is safe according to a new global blueprint on how to beat cancer. Even small amounts of processed meats and booze increase the risk of a host of cancers outlined in World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) guidelines updated every decade. The respected global authority has unveiled a 10-point plan to cut your risk of getting cancer by up to 40%. Brits have been told to banish favourites such as ham, burgers and hot dogs from their diets by experts who say they are a direct cause of bowel cancer. Processed meats also cause...

The Palm Beach Post reports that Lake Worth residents received the message during a power outage Sunday. The alert warned that more than 7,000 customers lost power "due to extreme zombie activity."

    Democrats are preparing to highlight allegations of corruption surrounding the Trump administration — and a legislative agenda to prevent future abuses — as they continue rolling out their party platform ahead of November’s midterm elections. The first planks of the “A Better Deal” platform, released last year, focused on the party’s economic agenda. Now, with questions about pay-to-play politics swirling around President Trump and his current and former aides, Democrats are set to introduce anti-corruption proposals Monday billed as “A Better Deal for Our Democracy.”
  • Elizabeth Warren pledges not to take ‘single penny’ from NRA. There’s no escaping that irony.

    One might expect the National Rifle Association would opt to burn its money in a huge bonfire before contributing to the campaign of hard-left zealot Sen. Elizabeth Warren, but that didn’t stop the Massachusetts Democrat from pledging not to take donations from the pro-Second Amendment group. Proving that Democrats have never met a catchy slogan they will not rally around to create a groundswell of support for their failed agenda, Warren took the pledge being pushed by NoNRAMoney.org, which has declared that “it’s time to make the NRA politically radioactive.” “I pledge not to take a single penny from the...
  • Ukraine should blow up Putin's Crimea bridge

    Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the Kerch Strait Bridge connecting Crimea, Ukraine, with mainland Russia on Tuesday. Putin did so by in a typical show of bravado by leading a column of transport vehicles across the bridge. Ukraine should now destroy elements of the bridge. While that course of action would be an escalation against Putin and one that would almost certainly spark Russian retaliation, this bridge is an outrageous affront to Ukraine's very credibility as a nation. Of course, from Putin's perspective that's the whole point. The bridge cost Russia's near-bankrupt government billions of dollars, but it offers Putin...

    Barack Obama made a habit of stealing private land to create more public parks. Now, in a highly ironic turn of events, public park activists have filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Chicago and the Chicago Park District to block construction of the planned Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park on the city’s South Side. The Obama Presidential Center has been mired in controversy from the start. In March 2015, the Chicago City Council approved an ordinance for Chicago Park District land in Jackson Park to be transferred to the City of Chicago to lease to the Obama...

    Laurel or Yanny? If you are scratching your head over that question then you probably haven't been on the Web for the past few days. During that time, a viral audio clip has been featured in which a listener will hear either "Laurel" or "Yanny." Two very different sounding words. Well, the White House entered this controversy with an amusing video featuring staffers who heard one or the other word. They also tweeted out the video and not unsurprisingly it triggered an angry reaction from liberals as we shall see.
  • When President Trump Attacks, Vulnerable Democratic Senators Shut Their Mouths and Pray

    Vulnerable senators up for reelection have adopted a strategy of silence in response to the president’s avalanche of putdowns. Jon Tester was on his farm in rural Montana when his phone rang with the news: It was his chief of staff, informing him that the president of the United States had just called for his resignation on Twitter. The Montana Democrat briefly considered President Donald Trump’s latest attack on him, then fired up his tractor and went on his way. Tester wasn’t going to get into it with Trump over the senator’s role in bringing down the president’s Veterans Affairs...

    A federal judge in Hawaii has blocked the recent release of three U.S. detainees from North Korea, calling it a political stunt that violated the detainees' constitutional right to "full and fair punishment," ordering that they be immediately returned to a North Korean prison. The case, brought by Hawaii Atty. Gen. Douglas Chin, follows his earlier move to declare Trump's peace effort unconstitutional and ordering the Korean War to continue as it had been during previous administrations. The latest decision, made just hours after the plane with the detainees landed in Washington, D.C., has struck down the Trump administration's attempt...

    President Donald Trump’s approval ratings are rising. The Democratic advantage on survey questions about party preference for control of Congress is vanishing. Liberal anxiety about the fate of the midterms — is rising. For world leaders, Donald Trump is the representative of America, which remains the planet’s military and economic powerhouse, and in that way, for now, America is not only too big to fail, it is too big to forsake. Other countries will do whatever it takes to have a successful relationship with the United States, whatever their version of “successful” means. In the case of Trump, many have...

    Breitbart ^ | 15 May 2018 | John Binder and Neil Munro
    The GOP legislator who is pushing the “discharge petition” is telling lobbyists that he will have enough GOP signatures to force an amnesty vote in the House once this week’s primaries are finished, sources tell Breitbart News. California GOP Rep. Jeff Denham is the frontman in the petition effort, which needs just seven more GOP signatures to reach the 25 needed GOP signatures on the discharge petition. Those 25 signatures will allow the 193 Democrats to take the 218-vote majority control of the House floor and push through a no-strings amnesty for roughly 3 million younger ‘DACA’ illegals. That amnesty...

    VIENNA (AP) — Arnold Schwarzenegger is urging President Donald Trump to join in efforts to promote green energy, saying he would have "a lot of victories." The former California governor spoke Tuesday at the R20 Austrian World Summit, an offshoot of a Schwarzenegger climate change initiative. Schwarzenegger has sparred with Trump, who last year announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord. Schwarzenegger said: "Those of you who resist because you can't imagine success without fossil fuels: we ask you to join us. Everyone. Also you, President Trump: Join us." He added: "You said ... you want to have...

    During an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof admitted that the media has an addiction to covering President Trump, leading them to avoid covering other newsworthy topics. He flushed this argument out further in a recent New York Times op-ed titled “Our Addiction to Trump.” Host Brian Stelter appeared to agree with Kristof, declaring that “I'm a Trump addict. I think I’m willing to admit that. I think all roads lead to Trump right now.” Kristof then admitted that he also suffered from Trump Addiction: “My wife and I, we find ourselves, our pillow talk...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Utah, is being treated for pancreatic cancer, his family said in a statement Monday. Reid underwent surgery Monday at Johns Hopkins Cancer Center to remove a tumor from his pancreas. "His doctors caught the problem early during a routine screening and his surgeons are confident that the surgery was a success and that the prognosis for his recovery is good," the family statement said. Reid is out of surgery and in good spirits, his family went on to say, and he will now undergo chemotherapy as the next step in his treatment. Senate Minority...

    While White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders cherishes her role as a mother to three children 6 years and under, she doesn’t shy away from the fact that there are difficult motherhood days – similar to dealing with CNN’s Jim Acosta. “Both of them whine pretty regularly. They both like to ask the same questions and sometimes their tone needs to be adjusted a little bit. So I think that having kids has prepared me for the job that I have right now,” Sanders responded to the Daily Caller question: “What’s more difficult: Dealing with your children on an onerous...

    After Turkish President Erdoğan said “If the nation says "tamam" ("enough") we will go”, millions of tweets were posted with the word “tamam”, which received great attention from global media. In a speech yesterday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said, “If one day our nation says tamam (enough), only then will we step aside,” and posts with the word “tamam” started popping up on Twitter. There were over 1.8 million posts that included the word “tamam”, while different versions/spellings of the word were also popular. The hashtag “devam” (“continue”) started by pro-Erdoğan groups immediately after lagged behind at 300.000 posts....
