A survey conducted for Washington Post's FactChecker by the University of Chicago found that while few Americans believe in President Donald Trump's false statements, Fox News viewers are 50% more likely to than the rest of the country.

“Among adults who say Fox News is one of their top two sources for political news,” the Post wrote, “33 percent believe in Trump’s false claims tested in the poll, on average, compared with 21 percent of those who say Fox is not a main news source.”

The percentage varies by viewing habits. For example, 85% of “Hannity” viewers found the following statement true.

“When asked whether he knew of the meeting between his son, Donald, Jr., his son-in-law, Jared Kushner and his campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and agents of the Russian government that took place in Trump Tower in June of 2016, Mr. Trump replied, 'How could I? I was in Florida.”

>are there good niggers and jews
Yes, though "good" means different things to different people. Certainly there are people who stick firmly to the original sin mentality that if a person hails from a certain group/ethnicity they are inherently "bad." Personally, I tend to withhold judgement until someone takes actions which I do or don't agree with. The better question is, do you believe that there aren't any good Jews or black people and what does that say about you as a person?

>is the left trying to destroy western culture
Until you define what "Western culture" and "the left" is there is nothing I can really say. Are there people actively trying to destabilize the position of the US on the global stage? Certainly. But I would argue they tend to be extremists which can crop out of the left/right/wherever and aren't exclusively tied to what the average person would consider a part of any mainstream political movement. So once again, do you believe that the "left" is actively working to undermine western culture?

Tumblr was removed from the app store in November after child abuse images were found to have slipped through its content filters.

The social network then said it would ban adult content completely from 17 December.

However, the move has angered many people who said they used the platform as a way to express their sexuality.

"There are no shortage of sites on the internet that feature adult content," said Jeff D'Onofrio, Tumblr's chief executive, when the decision was announced.

Its new guidelines prohibit any depiction of human genitalia, female nipples or sex acts, including illustrations. There will be exceptions for classical artistic works and political protests that involve nudity, but the company has warned that enforcement may be inconsistent.

It will provide new reporting tools and people will also be able to appeal if their content is blocked.

However, many Tumblr users have warned they will leave the site completely and have exported a copy of their blog before it is "purged" of adult content.

Pornographers are bracing for the first major obscenity clampdown in three decades under President Trump’s new pick for attorney general, William Barr, a strident social conservative whose views threaten the lucrative industry.

Anti-porn campaigners were thrilled with Trump's selection of Barr, previously attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, noting his enthusiastic obscenity prosecutions in the early ‘90s.

Pornographers are taking the threat seriously, but argue a crackdown would be hypocritical under the thrice-married Trump. His links to the industry include softcore Playboy cameos, an alleged affair with Playmate of the Year Karen McDougal, an alleged tryst with hardcore star Stormy Daniels and an accusation of assault by adult actress Jessica Drake.

Barr, described by one Washington attorney as a "staunch Catholic conservative," isn't shy about his views, warning in a 1995 article that "secularists" were targeting "laws that reflect traditional moral norms" and that "we are seeing the constant chipping away at laws designed to restrain sexual immorality [and] obscenity."

Federal obscenity law hasn’t changed in decades, leaving a juicy target for Barr, who left office 25 years ago, before the explosion of Internet porn that flourished under three presidents.

Hustler publisher Larry Flynt said Barr “very well could be” a threat. "They can’t keep our streets clean, so they want to keep our minds pure by dictating our reading habits," he said.

Mike Stabile, spokesman for the Free Speech Coalition, a porn industry trade group, said, "We've long worried that Trump's anxiety about his porn connections would cause him to over-correct. After all, what better way to distract evangelicals and anti-porners from your relationship to porn and porn stars than to attack it?”
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/porn-industry-girds-for-trump-crackdown-on-filth
>>
“But if Trump launches an anti-obscenity campaign, he'll be the Larry Craig of porn,” Stabile said, referring to the former Idaho Republican senator who campaigned for public morality before being arrested for soliciting sex in an airport bathroom.

Porn star Cherie DeVille, who is considering a 2020 presidential campaign, said Trump "also cracked down on immigration and has a wife who is an immigrant, so it would be right on brand for the Trump administration to continue with its hypocrisy." She added: “The irony is that these men themselves are the biggest fanboys."

The porn landscape is dramatically different from the early ‘90s, when it was mostly sold at stores and by mail. Now, it's available for free on three of the top 10 U.S. websites.

“They are a luscious target for prosecution," said Patrick Trueman, who heads the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. "If you take one down, it’s a profitable firm and you are going to get a lot of forfeiture of assets."

"If you began with even just a couple of U.S. attorney offices with the backing of main justice and the attorney general, you would see some major progress," Trueman said.

Campaigners fondly recall Barr’s record, detailed in a 1991 speech by President George H.W. Bush, who praised the "superb job" Barr was doing on pornography.

"We have virtually eliminated that horrible mail order obscenity business. Imagine the indiscriminate mailing of hard core pornography into American homes?" Bush said, during what now seems like a much more innocent age.

For years, Trueman, who was chief of the Justice Department’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section from 1988 to 1993, has sought to get prosecutions resumed. He met with then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in August 2017, but Sessions — under attack from Trump — “didn’t make any promises and we didn’t hear from him afterward.”

“He didn’t take the easy route, which is just to prosecute child pornography,” said Trueman. “I have been in his office one on one [in the '90s] talking about the issue of obscenity, and I can say he was very sincere about it."

Donna Rice Hughes, founder of the group Enough is Enough that campaigns for "making the Internet safer for children and families," expressed "high hopes" for Barr. Hughes, who also met with Sessions, argues that convictions would be easy.

“Jurors look over and think, that’s the guy responsible for my husband walking out on me. Or that’s the one responsible for my 10 year old [viewing porn],” said Hughes, who turned to religion after a dalliance with Sen. Gary Hart, D-Colo., memorialized in a photo of Hughes in Hart’s lap, dooming his 1988 presidential campaign.

Leaders in Washington matter, Trueman said, recalling Robert Mueller, then head of the Justice Department criminal division, ordering an unwilling U.S. attorney in Houston to prosecute an obscenity case.

Barr could "survey the industry, find the largest companies, and put them on a target list,” Trueman said.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said judges may ultimately side with companies. The Supreme Court since 1969 has protected private possession of obscene pornography, and rulings "largely curtail prosecution for viewing or creating consensual adult pornography," he said.

“Porn sites have more traffic than Netflix, Twitter, and Amazon combined,” Turley added. “Some 35 percent of all downloads are porn related. Porn is now an almost $100 billion industry with some $12 billion coming from the U.S. alone. A crackdown may not be what the Trump administration wants to add to its political agenda."

UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh said that while porn distribution is very different, "the legal landscape hasn’t materially changed since 1992," Barr’s last full year in office.
>>
“The George W. Bush administration did prosecute some creators of what was seen as unusually offensive porn, so maybe that will return, whether or not it seems to be effective,” Volokh said.

Gay porn producer Michael Lucas expressed concern that "obscenity laws are so vague," with prosecutors having to show material violates subjective “community standards," but held out hope that the Trump administration would not be competent enough to take on filth.

“Obviously it would be a waste of government money, but with this administration, you never know," he said. "On the other hand, if follow through is as inept as it is on other initiatives, we don’t have to be particularly worried."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer openly mocked the president during a heated Oval Office exchange over border security and the spending bill. “When the president brags he won North Dakota and Indiana, he’s in real trouble,” Schumer told Donald Trump in response to the president saying Republicans made gains in the Senate this election cycle.

Both states are deep red and voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, so Republican wins there were hardly news.

The retort was part of a long, tense discussion captured by cameras between House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, Trump, Schumer and Vice President Mike Pence. During the meeting, Trump repeatedly threatened to shut down the government if he did not receive full funding for a wall along 1,000-mile long U.S.-Mexico border.

"I am proud to shut down the government for border security... I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it," the president said to the Democratic minority leaders on Tuesday.

Trump told Pelosi that if he “needed the votes for the wall in the House,” that he would have them in “one session and we’d be done,” but that he needed Senate Democrats to vote for the wall too. Pelosi countered: “Mr. President, you have the White House, you have the Senate and you have the House of Representatives,” she said. “The fact is, you do not have the votes in the House."

Pelosi asked that the meeting, which she said was headed in a “downward spiral,” to be taken off-camera multiple times, but the president refused. In a post-meeting news conference, Pelosi told reporters that she did not want the discussion to be on-camera out of respect for the president.

"I didn’t want to in front of those people say, ‘You don’t know what you’re talking about,’” she explained.

Still trying to find that article that was written int the 1960s...it was some angsty guy from the generation before baby boomers - blaming them for everything in the exact same fashion boomers blame millineials for everything today - just highlighting the fact that anyone falls for the generation blame game, its a mouth breathing sheep with zero understanding of the true problems.

Things took a very bizarre turn on Tuesday night’s episode of “The Voice,” as one finalist was saved from elimination without even performing a song — and some extremely unhappy fans are blaming Adam Levine.

Levine, a coach on NBC’s hit singing show since it debuted seven years ago, found himself in the middle of this season’s biggest controversy. On Monday night, the Top 10 finalists performed. As usual, on Tuesday, everyone gathered for the viewer-voted results show to learn which singers would survive and go to next week’s semifinals.

The weirdness started as host Carson Daly brought the contestants onstage, and one person was missing: Reagan Strange, the 14-year-old soul-pop singer.

“She’s in the building, not feeling well at the moment, isn’t joining us. But is still here in spirit and part of the show, as for now,” Daly assured the audience. “So we’re thinking of her.”

In most cases, an absence would be unusual, but not a big deal — except that when Daly read the results, Strange was one of the bottom three vote-getters, along with 39-year-old country artist Dave Fenley and 22-year-old R&B-soul singer DeAndre Nico. Because only two singers would be eliminated, all three had a chance to try to save themselves (the show’s “instant save”) by performing one more song, as fans live-tweeted a special hashtag for their favorite.

The only problem? Strange, who performed Faith Hill’s “Cry” on Monday’s show, was now too sick to sing.

“Dave, DeAndre and Reagan remain at risk for elimination. And you can only save one of them. Unfortunately, Reagan’s still feeling under the weather, she’s not going to be able to perform tonight.” Daly said gravely. Then, a twist!

President Trump has privately asked aides about his vice president Mike Pence's loyalty, The New York Times reported Friday.

Trump reportedly questioned Pence's allegiance so many times that many of his advisers are alarmed, as those kinds of inquiries tend to indicate that he is irritated with someone.

According to the Times, most people within the White House have been supportive of Pence when asked, but some of Trump's outside advisers have suggested that the vice president may have used up his utility.

Trump has reportedly not made it clear whether he is seriously considering a 2020 ticket change or whether he is simply trying to get advisers' opinions before the campaign begins.

The Times noted that some outside advisers have suggested outgoing United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley as a potential replacement for Pence. Trump praised Haley when she announced her intentions to leave her post at the U.N. in October.

A mum-of-two has revealed she eats eight cigarette butts a day after developing a rare eating disorder.

Karen Kaheni, 42, developed an overwhelming desire to munch on the ends of her JPS Blue cigarettes last year – and soon after started yearning for blackboard chalk as well.

The heavy smoker, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, east the cigarette butts as she watches TV every evening.

She also eats 250g of chalk every week, costing £17 online.

She attributes her weird cravings to Pica, a condition that involves eating items like dirt and paint chips.

“It’s really embarrassing and I have no idea what triggered it,” she said.

“It isn’t so much the taste of the cigarette butts or the chalk that I like – it’s more the texture and the crunch.

“Now though, my cravings are so strong that when I run out of chalk or don’t have a cigarette at hand, I get quite agitated and my mouth begins to water.

Her chalk habit has helped her to cut back on eating nub ends – with her now consuming just two or three a day – but, already conscious of being a heavy smoker, she is concerned about the side effects of all elements of her strange diet on her health.

“I don’t really want to tell people about it, especially not doctors, so now only my close family and a few friends know,” she said.

“I did recently discover a Facebook page for people with Pica and that has been really useful for me.

“It’s nice to know that it isn’t just me and there are other people out there with the same problem.

“It makes me feel like less of a weirdo – less like I’m going mad.”

Yeah that gave me a bit of a chuckle.

In July 2008, Donald Trump undertook one of his most infamous transactions. He sold a mansion in Palm Beach for $95 million to Dmitry Rybolovlev, Russian oligarch and billionaire. Trump had purchased it four years earlier for $41.35 million. The sale price was nearly $54 million more than Trump had paid for the property, even though he had made only modest improvements in it. Trump boasts about his dealmaking skills in this transaction, but the details suggest something more sinister.

July 2008 was the middle of the recession. The real estate market had tanked, especially in Florida. Despite the recession, not only was the price 230 percent of what Trump paid, but it was also $13 million above the highest price previously paid for a Palm Beach mansion, according to the Palm Beach Post. Rybolovlev did not conduct an inspection. He did not obtain an appraisal. He did not order any professional review or undertake any other form of due diligence before purchasing the property.

Five years after the sale, when the economy had made a significant recovery, Palm Beach County appraised the house for just $59.8 million. In other words, despite an actual recorded sale of $95 million and despite the economic recovery, the county determined that it was worth $35 million less than what Rybolovlev had paid five years earlier.

As of March 2017, Rybolovlev had never even lived in the house.

Why did Rybolovlev make this deal? There was publicity about a messy divorce and speculation that Rybolovlev was hiding assets from his wife (the divorce was not filed until five months after the purchase). Alternatively, he may have made the purchase as an investment.

Either way, the whole point would be to get his money back at some point. Overpaying for the property makes no sense. Nor does his complete failure to conduct even the most rudimentary due diligence.

Egypt is investigating a video which appears to show a Danish couple scaling the Great Pyramid and posing naked.

The alleged incident has sparked outrage in the conservative Muslim country.

Prosecutors will explore whether the video is real, and if so how they were able to climb the 140m (460ft) tall structure, state-run newspaper Al-Ahram reports.

Officials had initially suggested the footage might be fake.

The Great Pyramid of Giza, also known as Khufu or Cheops, is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world

A photographer said he and a friend had spent several hours "sneaking around" before making the climb.

The Egyptian antiquities minister told MPs on Sunday that prosecutors were investigating whether the Danish couple "really filmed an explicit pornographic video" at the famous site in Giza.

Donald Trump is getting worried for the “first time in his life,” one of the legendary journalists who help exposed the scandal that led to former President Richard Nixon’s resignation has warned.

Carl Bernstein, who worked with Bob Woodward in the 1970s to uncover the Watergate scandal, appeared on Sunday to discuss the allegations against Trump revealed through a sentencing memo written by federal prosecutors for the president’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen. The document, which references Trump as “Individual 1,” says that the president led the criminal conspiracy to pay off two women with whom he allegedly had extramarital affairs.

“It certainly looks like they are the kind of offenses that would call for impeachment hearings into the conduct of the president of the United States,” Bernstein told host. “There’s something much more important than just impeachment going on, and that is the fact that Donald Trump for the first time in his life is cornered,” he said.

The journalist pointed out that the former businessman “always could bully his way out of a corner” when he was managing his private company. “He always could buy his way out, cheat his way out. He is boxed in by Mueller, and the people around him know that he is."

Thus far, thirty-three people and three companies have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election. Mueller’s final report is expected soon, and the most recent allegations have led many politicians to suggest the president could be impeached, or even criminally indicted and jailed.

“It’s clear that Mueller is now connecting the dots between a massive obstruction intended to hide the truth about the Trump campaign, Trump, his business organization, and his family from the investigators."

The GOP is going to have to make some tough decisions, because at the rate that things are going Trump is going to bring them all down with him.

Pretty much.

Eh not really. They're looking at a shellacking next election whether or not Trump wins. If Mueller comes back with something on the level of pedophillia/treason they'll impeach, if he comes back with financial crimes they'll wait it out and lose.

The logical decision would be to abandon Trump and take the 2020 loss with the hope of coming back in 2024 with a new candidate, instead of sticking with Trump and guaranteeing the next Democrat will last eight years.

>The hush-money payments were violations of the law because campaign spending is regulated. You can only accept money under certain conditions, you can only spend that money under specific conditions, and that spending needs to be reported. In this case, the payments to Karen McDougal (made on Trump’s behalf by American Media Inc., as the company admitted in an agreement with the government released on Wednesday) and Stormy Daniels (made by Cohen) were not made with legally collected money and not reported as campaign spending. In addition, the spending by AMI was itself illegal, since corporations can’t coordinate with campaigns on political spending. The two campaign finance charges to which Cohen pleaded guilty related to his payment to Daniels and his work with AMI to make the McDougal payment.

The Australian Government consulted with its allies to conduct such a decision and conducted discussions within the country.

In the future, Australia wants to place a security and trading office in Jerusalem. However, the transfer of the embassy from Tel Aviv will not yet be.

Despite the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the Australian Prime Minister stated that he also acknowledged the Palestinian people's desire for their own statehood.

Be careful when dabbling with spirits and the occult.

That’s what Amanda Sparrow Large of Northern Ireland is warning others as she prepares to leave her husband of nearly three years – the ghost of an 18th-century Haitian pirate, John Robert Teague. Many know of the notorious marauder as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Large received international news coverage after she revealed she'd married the ghost on the high seas in July 2016. But now she says she regrets the decision to marry him.

“I wish I never got married to him. I wish I was that healthy person that I was before I met him,” Large, who no longer goes by her married name, told InsideEdition.com in her first interview since the split. “Jack has turned what was a beautiful and loving relationship to something that is ugly.”

While she explained their marriage was just like any other, filled with love and happy memories, she said she suspected Jack had malevolent intentions. Large said spirits take energy from living beings in order to be active in the physical world, but taking too much energy from someone can cause them to become ill or fatigued.

“Obviously I was in love with Jack ... Unfortunately Jack was taking far too much energy and literally draining me and pretty much just using me for his own selfish intentions,” she said. “He was a pirate, what he did was steal when he was alive. Now he’s stealing or draining energy, it kind of makes sense when you think about it. I can’t believe it took me this long to figure it out.”

She believes her misfortune and poor health started after their wedding day in 2016. Large said she'd been in and out of the hospital several times in the last year, including surgeries, trips to the emergency room and one near-death experience.

As Donald Trump’s West Wing careens through one of the most turbulent weeks of his presidency, White House officials are struggling to understand the source of the fury fueling the president’s eruptions. “This is a level of insanity I’ve never seen before,” one former West Wing staffer told me. Current and former officials are debating different theories for Trump’s outbursts, ranging from his fears over his son Don Jr.’s legal exposure to the prospect that House Democrats will unleash investigations in January. “He’s under a tremendous amount of mental stress,” one prominent Republican close to him told me.

What’s surprising to some advisers about how bad the past week has been is that Trump initially seemed to take the midterm losses in stride. Last Tuesday, he was in high spirits as he watched election returns come in with about a hundred friends at the White House. Trump told people that his barnstorming rally schedule had mobilized his base and held Republican losses to historical lows, while increasing Republican gains in the Senate. “He really thought he won the midterms,” a prominent Republican who spoke with Trump said.

But by Wednesday, after hours of commentary about the suburbs’ distaste for him and with seat after undecided House seat slipping toward the Democrats, his mood slid, too, hitting bottom in a bizarre and combative press conference. “He was furious about the narrative. He said, ‘Look, I went to all these states and now people are saying Trump lost the election,’” the Republican who spoke with him recalled. Within hours, Trump forced out Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replaced him with Matt Whitaker, who’d been a frequent cable-news critic of the Robert Mueller investigation.
