The U.S. women are World Cup champions. Millions of fans across America are celebrating. In parks, on downtown streets, in living rooms, and elsewhere. So are the tens of thousands who travelled to France for the occasion. Fox News figured it would send a reporter and camera crew across the Atlantic to capture the scene in Lyon. And ... uh ... they found quite a scene!

LOL. I am not sure if you all have seen the clip of these "heros" dropping the US flag to the ground because they were hamming it up for the cameras. The pink haired freak was one of the two who dropped it. One of the players saw her duty and picked it up, but honestly, this is the most boring sport I can think of.

"Millions of fans across America are celebrating". Try thousands. Maybe tens of thousands. Certainly not millions. Was it on TV? Was it today? Nobody I know gave the match a second thought.

This is sports' behavior? My oh my. I'm sure no mom or dad want their young ones looking up to this type of behavior. Whatever happened to the 'setting an example and being role models? I'll answer that. You better leave the role modeling up to mom and dad. So parents remember, you are IT! Please be good parents that can produce and nurture children to be better citizens than this bumch of women. Teach your children to love their families, their flag and their country. And most of all....God.

On his second day of events in Nashville, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke met with immigrants and refugees living in Tennessee on Monday for a roundtable discussion. O'Rourke, a former Texas congressman, first held a rally at Marathon Music Works on Sunday, drawing hundreds of supporters to the campaign event where he largely focused on immigration and decried President Donald Trump's policies on detaining migrants at the southern border. The Monday roundtable was organized by TIRRC Votes, the political action committee of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren spent most of the spring as the Democratic presidential hopeful on the rise. Her poll numbers steadily ticked up, as she carved out a spot as a policy-focused candidate whose weekly plan rollouts set much of the broader campaign agenda. The momentum translated to fundraising. Warren took in $19.1 million in April, May and June — more than three times what her campaign raised during the first quarter of 2019, according to her campaign Monday. The fundraising total is about $1 million more than Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders raised, and about $7 million more than California Sen.

Pelosi’s decision to support the Senate version of the border funding bill instead of the House version triggered the rift. The bills differed in terms of stricter oversight of migrant care in detention facilities, which the House version demanded, and the additional funding for Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which the Senate version demanded. The Senate version was not well-received by the progressives, who

DES MOINES, Iowa — Democrats in the early presidential contest states of Iowa and Nevada will be able to cast their votes over the telephone instead of showing up at their states' traditional neighborhood caucus meetings next February, according to plans unveiled by the state parties. The tele-caucus systems, the result of a mandate from the Democratic National Committee, are aimed at opening the local-level political gatherings to more people, especially evening shift-workers and people with disabilities, whom critics of the caucuses have long said are blocked from the process. The changes are expected to boost voter participation across the board

America is awash in natural gas. In parts of the country there’s hardly a drop to burn. Earlier this year, two utilities that service the New York City area stopped accepting new natural-gas customers in two boroughs and several suburbs. Citing jammed supply lines running into the city on the coldest winter days, they said they couldn’t guarantee they’d be able to deliver gas to additional furnaces. Never mind that the country’s most prolific gas field, the Marcellus Shale, is only a three-hour drive away. Meanwhile, in West Texas, drillers have so much excess natural gas they are simply burning

Sir Kim Darroch, one of Britain's top diplomats, used secret cables and briefing notes to impugn Trump's character, warning London that the White House was 'uniquely dysfunctional' and that the President's career could end in 'disgrace'.

Nike offered a lame excuse that it had removed the shoe from retailers because “it featured an old version of the American flag.” In fact, it featured the American flag that was actually in use in 1776 on the original Fourth of July, and it is named for the pioneering Founding Mother to whom its design is commonly attributed, Betsy Ross.
