Time magazine was slammed on Tuesday over a bizarre article meant to help parents explain the significance of the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. "If you need help talking with the children in your life about the aftermath of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani's killing, @timeforkids has a guide to explaining the topic," Time tweeted. In the introduction to the "guide," Time for Kids executive editor Jaime Joyce acknowledged that children who are watching the news "are likely to have lots of questions" about last week's airstrike ordered by President Trump and that it's a "difficult topic to explain to kids." "Trust your instincts. You know your kids best.

They're willing to warp the children just to hate Trump. Another fake news, propagandist, morally corrupt institution.

I grew up with Time and Newsweek. Now the only time I see either is in a Drs. office, and I marvel at how few pages each has. More of a wonder is how two decent magazines have turned into trash desperately looking for attention.

2, About 8 years ago I was in a doctor's office and picked up a copy of Newsweek. It could not have been more than 1/8" thick. I knew print media was on its way out, but this thing was like a flyer for an outlet mall.

Take your kids to a gathering of veterans, show them the ones missing limbs and tell them, "You see that? That bad man we killed was responsible for that. He killed lots of their friends too."

FTA: "Sometimes, it’s best to let a child take the lead and only answer the questions that are asked." Sometimes it's best to let children be children, the troubles of the world will be theirs to solve soon enough. Parents kept their kids feeling safe when their fathers were off fighting Nazi's and Imperial Japan.

It's obvious by their sales (or lack thereof) that Time's service to parents in this case is not needed. Leftists are stupid parents who are way ahead of you anyway, and the rest of US ain't buying it. Go away, you child abusers!

I don't remember a guide from Time to explain to children what their government was doing to a family on Ruby Ridge or the killing and burning of families at Waco Texas by Janet Reno. Time explain the capture by a swat team of Ilion Gonzales by again Janet Reno.

As anti-government protests swept Iran in the aftermath of the downing of a Ukrainian plane, students from Tehran avoided walking on massive American and Israel flags placed on the road in front of them. (Tweet) Videos circulated on social media showed Iranian students parting as they approached the large flags, taking pains to avoid stepping on them. A few people who did walk over the flags were booed by protesters in the area with chants of "Shame on you." Some reports said that the protesters near the flags chanted "Our enemy is in Iran, not America." (Tweet) Hillel Neuer, the executive director of NGO UN Watch, tweeted in response

A top British official condemned Saturday’s arrest of the U.K. ambassador to Iran during anti-government protests in Tehran, calling the detainment “a flagrant violation of international law.” Rob Macaire, who has been Britain’s envoy to the Islamic republic since March 2018, was arrested as he stopped at a barber shop for a haircut after attending a vigil for the victims of a Ukrainian jetliner that crashed in Tehran last week, the BBC reported. Macaire left the vigil after it became a demonstration but was later accused by Iranian authorities of helping to incite the anti-government protest, The Independent of Britain reported.

Kandahar, Afghanistan - A roadside bomb hit a convoy of U.S. troops on Saturday in Afghanistan’s southern province of Kandahar, a NATO spokesman and an Afghan official said, but there were no immediate details of casualties in a blast claimed by the Taliban. A senior Afghan military official in Kandahar said the incident took place in the district of Dand when the device hit one of the armoured vehicles of the U.S. forces. Foreign troops cordoned off the area and kept Afghan forces away from the scene, the official added. The NATO spokesman said it was assessing the situation but declined to give details. Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi claimed responsibility

A New York high school student can put “planet discovery” on his resume after finding a new world during his NASA internship. Wolf Cukier was working at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland last summer when he uncovered TOI 1338 b — a planet orbiting two stars instead of one — while examining information captured by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), according to a release from the space agency. “I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit,” Cukier, 17, said in a statement.

Donald Trump has sent a 'happy birthday' message to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Chung Eui-yong, South Korea's national security adviser, said Trump gave him the message to pass along to Kim during a meeting in Washington on Wednesday. Chung told South Korean media that Trump wanted President Moon Jae-in to relay the message, and believes it was delivered the next day. Chung did not reveal the exact contents of the message, and did not say how it was received by the North Koreans. Kim's birthday is on January 8, and he is thought to have turned 36 years old.

Rep. Jody Hice said the most crucial principle to remember about America is that here, in this country, individual rights come from God, not the government, and that deviating from this path leads to cultural degradation, Big Government, socialism and, ultimately, utter governmental and societal collapse. He’s right, you know. The Republican from Georgia nailed it. “The more we kick God out,” Hice said, in an interview with The Washington Times for the podcast “Bold and Blunt,” the more frequently, the more habitually — the more frustratingly — “we see more and more intrusive government at the same time.” Hello socialist Rep.

The counties, including Summit and Cuyahoga, have sued CVS, Rite Aide and Walgreens, claiming they are party to blame for the addictions and overdoses among their citizens because they filled 'excessive' prescriptions.

The Ukrainian flight that crashed just outside the Iranian capital of Tehran was struck by an anti-aircraft missile system, a Pentagon official, a senior U.S. intelligence official and an Iraqi intelligence official told Newsweek. Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, a Boeing 737–800 en route from Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airpot to Kyiv's Boryspil International Airport, stopped transmitting data Tuesday just minutes after takeoff and not long after Iran launched missiles at military bases housing U.S. and allied forces in neighboring Iraq. The aircraft is believed to have been struck by a Russia-built Tor-M1 surface-to-air missile system, known to NATO as Gauntlet, the three officials told Newsweek.

Washington - The White House on Thursday introduced major changes to the nation’s benchmark environmental protection law, moving to ease approval of major energy and infrastructure projects without detailed environmental review or consideration of climate change. Many of the changes to the law — the 50-year-old National Environmental Policy Act, a landmark measure that touches nearly every significant construction project in the country — had been long sought by the oil and gas industry as well as trade unions, which have argued that the review process is lengthy, cumbersome and used by environmental activists to drag out legal disputes and kill infrastructure projects.

Hollywood celebrity is tough to shuck, at least for Meghan Markle, last seen in a starring role as Duchess of Sussex.

Harry and Meghan don’t know how good they have it. They want to bust out of their gilded cage and roam free, but they’re so naive they’re like fluffy kitties who have never crossed a busy road before and are likely to get squashed if they try. A key motivation to the shocking Megxit announcement this week — even as the Queen warned Meghan and Prince Ginger Whiskers against going public with their moronic plan — was their fury with the media.

For most of the twenty-first century, the world’s oldest surviving democracy has been led by a chief executive who received fewer votes than his opponent in an election for the position. The first of these executives started a war based on false pretenses that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. The second — a serial abuser of women who hired as his campaign manager a lobbyist for violent dictatorships - authorized an immigration policy that forcibly separated migrant children from their families and indefinitely detained them in facilities described as “concentration camps.” Democracy, as they say, is messy.

The number one story in the news in Great Britain (and a major story around the world) is the apparent abandonment of the Royal Family by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The story obviously has a strong personal element, but it also strikes me as emblematic of our time. The British monarchy is not just ancient, but profoundly old-fashioned. It is founded on a concept of duty, exemplified by Queen Elizabeth II, that is utterly at odds with the 21st century. Being a Royal is a great job, most would say, but it inherently involves sacrifice.
