Meghan Markle's guest-editing position for the September issue of Vogue U.K. is already making headlines for all of the wrong reasons. Shortly after the issue was released, fans pointed out the glaring similarities the magazine’s cover seemed to share with Australian authors Samantha Brett and Steph Adams’ bestselling book, “The Game Changers." Brett and Adams told us the similarities between their book, which Meghan contributed to in 2016, is "flattering" but "disappointing." (Snip)Brett, a columnist in the land down under, told us of the cover choice which shows the faces of various women considered “Forces for Change” and placed in separate boxes.

That's ridiculous... a collage of photos has been a hundred times if not a thousand. This is an entirely unfair criticism of Markle.

I don't know that she has the intelligence needed to come up with something on her own and I see the similarities but I would put it down more to flattery and ignorance than to deliberate plagiarism of any kind.

Megan Markle is not "royal". She is an American ACTRESS. (Not that I have reverence for anyone who calls themselves queens and kings especially this crazy, inbred group of Germans) I am so thankful for George Washington who declined kingship.

I don’t care about that lefty fashion rag...enjoyed it in the 80s but now, ugh. As for Miss Me-Again Markle, Duchess of Bad P.R., she’s a narcissistic, mentally ill woman with a dubious past who bamboozled an equally disturbed and spoilt ‘prince’ who never recovered from the death of his mum. Hangers-on, both of them. I was an Anglophile and royal enthusiast but this duo...good Lord. For the love of all things British, Your Majesty, banish them both with Uncle Randy Andy, post haste.

A Texas judge received a public warning Monday from the state's Commission on Judicial Conduct for refusing to perform same-sex marriages. McLennan County Justice of the Peace Dianne Hensley has said her “Bible-believing” Christian conscience did not allow her to perform same-sex weddings and believes she’s entitled to a “religious exemption.” Hensley continues to perform weddings for heterosexual couples. The order made public Monday said Hensley was violating Texas Code of Judicial Conduct which states, “A judge shall conduct all of the judge’s extra-judicial activities so that they do not cast reasonable doubt on the judge’s capacity to act impartially as a judge,”

First Lady Melania Trump looked as though she stepped off the Italian runway while strutting down Downing Street for a reception with Queen Elizabeth II. For her first evening in London, England since last summer, Mrs. Trump went big and bold in a voluminous off-the-runway yellow Compact Drap cape by Valentino. The $3,850 cape, from the Fall 2019 Collection, is a microcosm of creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s codes for Valentino — striking colors, volume galore, and a childlike innocence. Mrs. Trump wore the Valentino piece over a custom knit dress by her personal couturier Hervé Pierre in a purple-pink shade which matched her suede Christian Louboutin stilettos.

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly said that he discussed the firing of former FBI Director James Comey with former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in late 2016 or early 2017, according to a new batch of documents released in relation to former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into election interference. The documents, released due to a CNN and BuzzFeed lawsuit, totaled 295 pages of witness memoranda and notes from FBI interviews that were part of the special counsel's probe. President Trump fired Comey in 2017, saying that he was acting on recommendations from Sessions and Rosenstein. Mueller's probe began in response to Comey's dismissal.

"I came here legally at age 11. Having grown up in extreme poverty and being homeless to now being one of San Diego's most prominent physicians, that's the American Dream, that's the California dream. And that's what Gov.

In an article entitled “Russia Inquiry Review Is Expected to Undercut Trump Claim of F.B.I. Spying,” New York Times writer Adam Goldman tries mightily, yet fails, to debunk claims that Obama officials tried to spy on the Trump campaign. In the podcast below, investigator Dan Bongino deconstructs Goldman’s “propaganda” and in the end, makes a stunning new connection between FBI informant Stephan Halper and the former head of the SVR, the Russian foreign intelligence service, Vyacheslav Trubnikov, who was a source for Christopher Steele.

What Happened To Drudge? 80 replies

It’s one of the questions you’re not supposed to ask in public but everyone talks about in private: What’s going on with Matt Drudge? For conservatives, the Drudge Report was a one-stop shop for news on the Internet starting in the late 1990s. When Matt first broke the scandal involving the President of the United States and an intern, his place at the top of alternative media, as it was called then, was secured. As always, imitators followed. But none came close to combing as many news outlets and boiling down the essence of stories like Drudge. That was his magic – he’d plow through stories and

The “No Country for Old Men” actor revealed the effect of tanning his bum in a Black Friday Instagram post. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain,” Brolin wrote next to a photo of a naked man lying on his back with his legs in the air as the sun kisses his posterior.

The liberal paper’s fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a piece headlined, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” which criticizes the outfit the first lady wore when unveiling the décor.

Next year, Democrats will control both houses of Virginia’s state Legislature as well as its governorship. On November 18, State Sen. Dick Saslaw introduced a bill that he will sponsor in the 2020 legislative session. That bill will outlaw not only the sale or transfer but also the possession of certain firearms. Saslaw’s bill — SB 16 — provides that “It is unlawful for any person to import, sell, manufacture, purchase, possess or transport an assault firearm” and makes such actions a Class 6 felony. (In Virginia, Class 6 felonies are punishable by imprisonment for between one and five years.)

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer whose anti-Trump text messages became ammo for Republicans to allege a "coup" against President Trump, stepped into the public spotlight one week ahead of a highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report. The Daily Beast published an interview with Page in the evening Sunday and shortly afterwards she was revealed to be on Twitter. "I’m done being quiet," Page said in a short tweet sharing the report. Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of Lawfare and "good friend" of former FBI Director James Comey, confirmed the account, @NatSecLisa, is hers.

Elizabeth Warren said she wants to be the last president elected by the electoral college and the first elected by the popular vote. The Democratic presidential candidate wants the electoral college abolished after the 2020 election, saying she would get elected next year under its rules and then by the popular vote when she ran for re-election in 2024. Democrats were outraged in 2016 when Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but Donald Trump won the electoral college and the presidency. (Photo/Tweet)

However, the executive summary laid out the broad outlines of the Democrats’ case.

My husband watches a lot of videos on YouTube and some are entertaining, but some are downright scary. I watched one recently made by a man defending the Electoral College because he lives in flyover country. He made a lot of sense and clearly understands why the Founding Fathers wrote it into the Constitution. The rants coming from the Democrats running for office clearly show that none of them studied civics in school. They seem to think that if you don’t live in large cities on the coasts, your vote shouldn’t count.

Fox Business host Stuart Varney revealed his 2020 predictions as the country gears up for a heated election year. "I think this is a split party, I think Bloomberg is the nominee," Varney said Tuesday about the Democrats, "and I think Trump wins big time in November." "Think about what's happening to the Democrat party," said Varney. "You've got two candidates for the presidency who are socialists and along comes this man who is ... the 11th richest person in the world ... so you've got the socialists, going up against the billionaires. That is a totally divided party."
