Former President Bill Clinton delivered a politically charge commencement address on Saturday as part of CNN’s two-hour primetime special honoring the class of 2020.“I urge you to embrace the challenge. The world needs you. Your country needs you,” Clinton said, warning students across the country that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic has released them “into an uncertain future.” (Tweet/Video) “Even before the outbreak, you knew you were entering a world of growing inequalities, and divisive tribalism, with people pulling away from those who are different from them,” Bill Clinton said. “Seething resentments and a broken information system

If you don’t have blue dress evidence , you are screwed. So, the lesson my friends is this- always argue the meaning of ‘is’, tell your opponent to put ice on it.. deflect,deny, and marry someone who knows how to bury bodies.. #arkancide #fortmarcypark

Is this a different special from the one that was on Fox? I watched it for about 15 minutes and it was really very good...until the lesbian soccer player came on to talk to the graduates. Turned it off. Can't understand why they would have anyone as divisive as her. There also was a quick shot of two young men kissing but it went by pretty fast. If you had blinked you would have missed it. Why do they have to shove depravity in our faces all the time?

U.S. equity markets soared Monday after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank will continue to support the U.S. economy for as long as necessary and drugmaker Moderna announced progress toward a COVID-19 vaccine.The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained as many as 800 points, or 3.388 percent, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite were higher by 2.79 percent and 2.16 percent, respectively. (Snip) Powell warned that while the U.S. economy will return to growth in 2020, it may not reach pre-crisis levels until late next year and that a full recovery may hinge on the discovery of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Republicans are preparing a multi-million dollar, multi-state effort to recruit volunteers to monitor voting places for fraud, a move that could bolster President Donald Trump's claims Democrats will cheat in the November election. President Trump repeatedly has complained elections are rigged: that Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic primary to Joe Biden because of it, that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in 2016 through cheating, and even last week's California special election, that Republicans won, was rigged.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign has frequently pointed to a 69-page “playbook” that the Obama-Biden administration created for dealing with pandemics, arguing that President Donald Trump had ignored it.White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany recently called the playbook “insufficient,” according to the Washington Examiner.In fact, the playbook is less than advertised. Of the 69 pages, only 27 are the actual “playbook.” The first 13 pages are the table of contents, executive summary, and various title pages. The last 29 pages are appendices. And within the 27 pages of the “playbook” section, only 17 deal with an international outbreak of an infectious disease.

It’s not rocket science to say the beginning of Trump hatred came from the Clinton campaign. He was once feted in New York, even by liberals. How did it change from high regard to hated? One thing is clear, dislike was instant once Trump entered the race as a Republican, increased as he ran, and took a quantum leap forward when he won the election. To this day the hatred has grown on a level hardly thought possible.It has now become common for leftists to accost those who differ by going into hysterics.

At the center of President Trump’s reelection campaign is a simple message: America is back and ready to turn the page on the coronavirus and its economic fallout. “Vaccine or no vaccine, we’re back,” Trump declared at a White House event on Friday. This is usually the argument an incumbent president makes during an economic boom or a victory over a great national challenge. Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America” reelection theme came after stagflation was whipped and the economy was growing at 6.8%.Trump is making this argument while the coronavirus still rages, and, as he acknowledged, there is no vaccine.

Former President Barack Obama on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump in all but name as he gave a televised commencement address for high school seniors. Obama's message to graduating high school students came at the end of an hourlong television special. Obama panned 'so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs' who do 'what feels good, what's convenient, what's easy.' 'That's how little kids think,' he added, 'which is why things are so screwed up.' The 44th President did not mention Trump by name, but there was no mistaking who he meant. Earlier on Saturday, Obama gave another commencement address

An article in Nowhere Magazine several years ago explored the ways ancient cultures dispatched the elderly, a practice known as senicide. Author Justin Nobel recounted several gruesome rites that made the Inuit habit of putting Granny on an Arctic ice floe seem humane. At one point, Nobel mentioned that his own grandparents had moved “to a fancy nursing home in the suburbs of New York City.” That made me shudder. If they are honest, historians judging the American experience during the coronavirus pandemic will excoriate our barbaric failure to protect the elderly.

When Tara Reade, a former staffer in the office of then-Sen.

Kavanaugh of sexual assault when both were teenagers). Democrats are in a pickle! Live by the “believe women” rule! This effort at moral equivalency made the same error that all such comparisons do: It attempted to treat unequal things as equal. In the case of Ford, she had never changed her account of an assault at a party, which Kavanaugh denies.

The host then spoke about how everyone loves comedian Howie Mandel, but that his obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is “a disease” that has brought great pain to the comedian over the course of his life. “He can’t touch a doorknob or wear shoes with laces [because] they might touch the ground,” Maher noted before quoting Mandel himself.
