President Donald Trump demanded U.S. companies stop doing business with China and announced increased tariffs on Beijing Friday, capping one of the most extraordinary days in the long-running U.S.-China trade war. Read more


"Keep Marysville a white community as much as possible," said Cramer, one of five candidates vying for three open council seats in November. "As long as, how can I put this? What Kathy Hayman doesn't know is that her family is in the wrong," she said. "(A) husband and wife need to be the same race. Same thing with kids. That's how it's been from the beginning of, how can I say, when God created the heaven and the earth. He created Adam and Eve at the same time. But as far as me being against blacks, no I'm not."

On the gathering storm comes a tall handsome man, in a dusty black coat with a red right hand. Read more


Bits of plastic too small to see are in the air we breathe. They are in the water we drink and the food we eat. How many of them do we consume? And how does they affect our health? A team of researchers has now calculated an answer to the first question. Answering the second, they say, will require more study.


Conservative lawyer George Conway tweeted Friday that President Trump should be sent to Walter Reed Medical Center and his Cabinet should declare him unfit to be president after Trump tweeted directions to American companies to find an "alternative" to doing business with China.

The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is a frequent critic of the president and has in the past claimed that the president is unfit for office, often advocating for Cabinet members to remove Trump per the 25th Amendment of the Constitution.

"I hereby order the White House staff to take @realDonaldTrump to Walter Reed, and to convene the cabinet under Section 4 of the Twenty-fifth Amendment," he wrote, adding the trending hashtag "Iherebyorder."


Nothing is sadder than the Hollywood movies that were THIS close to being blockbusters. They're known as "One Letter Off Movie Titles." There have been hundreds of famous examples that stretch all the way back to the Silent Era and on up until this very day. Have you ever heard of The Gold Tush? How about The Great Brain Robbery? Girth Of A Nation? Didn't think so ...


Professor Jackdaws' latest YouTube video contrasts two works of municipal, outdoor artworks, one a gated, inaccessible sculpture outside a Whole Foods market, and the other a nearby public fountain adorned with a spectacular mosaic celebrating the locale of Tarzana, California.


The stock index fell more than 400 points, or about 1.6%, after Trump tweeted he "will be responding to China's tariffs this afternoon." "We don't need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them," he said. He also "ordered" American companies "to immediately start looking for an alternative to China."


Few film franchises have met with the critical and audience acclaim paid to the Dark Knight trilogy, and for good reason. The story starts at the fabled "Bat-Man" beginnings and continues into the present day and beyond. For a tale stretching back 80 years, it's no surprise that the legend continues to build. Still, there is much about the myth that most fans are not aware of. Here are a few tantalizing tidbits to tide us over until the Dark Knight returns in 2021...


How does one man as young as Bill Hader (he allegedly just turned 41) learn the skills needed to be such a well-rounded, highly-gifted entertainer delivering at a level seemingly so far beyond his years? Is it because he's a Time Traveling Immortal? It seems to be the only reasonable explanation for Hader's incredible talents, which are rarely learned during the course of the average single lifespan of less than 100 years. Of course, there are exceptions, but there has never been a verifiable case of anyone, man or woman, living beyond 120 or so. Especially in show business. Let's face it, George Burns almost didn't make his 100th birthday party and Bob Hope spent his last days begging to be put out of his misery. Read more


Framed differently, the picture is this: Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women. Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don't need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression. Read more


"Trump veered from topic to topic with utter confidence, alarming ignorance, minimal coherence and relentless duplicity."


China will resume imposing additional tariffs of 25 percent or 5 percent on American-made vehicles and auto parts starting from 12:01 p.m. Dec. 15, the Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council announced Friday. Read more


After nearly 40 years of offering free college, starting in 1998 students in England were asked to pay about $1,200 per year. Since then, tuition has risen to $11,000 per year. Students in England now leave college with around $60,000 of debt on average. A government-backed loan scheme means graduates only start repaying that debt once they are earning more than $30,000. Any debt that remains after 30 years is forgiven altogether. Read more


After Huawei, now all of Chinese culture is labeled dangerous by "western" civilization! Read more


The current U.S. space defense strategy is inadequate and on a path to failure. As Trump said on June 18, "It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space." But the Air Force is not matching this vision. Instead, the leadership is currently focused on incremental improvements to existing equipment. Read more
