GQ Magazine was forced to issue a correction after one of its columnists misidentified former segregationist Alabama Gov. George Wallace as a Republican in an effort to smear the GOP as racist. Laura Bassett, who also writes as freelance political reporter, wrote a Wednesday op-ed titled “The Anti-Abortion Movement Was Always Built on Lies,” attempting to chronicle evangelical efforts in building up the pro-life movement. The crux of Bassett’s piece rests on the foundation that the pro-life movement was “bought and paid for the Christian right,” to morph the Republican Party into the pro-life party.

To compound her stupidity someone could point out that many Democrats were pro-life in the 1960s-1970s.

I often thought that the GOP or a GOP PAC should put up billboards in some urban neighborhoods with pictures of famous democrats - George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door blocking the black children with the caption "Governor George Wallace was a democrat, Bull Conner with a picture of the fire hoses blasting and police dogs attacking the civil rights protesters and the caption "Bull Conner was a democrat" and of course Robert Byrd split shot with him in his Grand Kleagle outfit right next to the one of him hugging Hillary with the caption Robert Byrd, democrat and Grand Kleagle of the KKK. Or would be too harsh? Because people who should know it, don't.

GQ magazine published an anti-Trump issue in 2016. The issue was one huge, ugly, Trump-attacking piece. I wondered at the time why the magazine would purposely alienate half of its readership. And for the record, that's the last time I ever read GQ.

TBH GQ started going off the rails in the 1970's. The usual suspects saw an established market and corrupted it.

Didn't their correction just say he was not a Republican? Shouldn't they have said: “Correction 5/21: An earlier version of this piece misstated that George Wallace was a Republican. He was a four-term Democrat governor of Alabama and ran three times as a Democrat candidate for President. We regret the error,” All it said was that he wasn't a Republican. Yeah, you and I know he was a Democrat, but no one has gone broke underestimating the stupidity of many of our fellow citizens.

The abortion movement was founded by a hard core racist whose intent was to rid the world of black babies and 'other undesirables'. Read Margaret Sangers own words she was a racist, trying wipe out blacks. She planned to "hire black preachers" (her exact words) to push birth control and abortions in black churches.

Attorney General Bill Barr on Friday said he named Ed O’Callaghan to temporarily serve as acting deputy attorney general in the wake of Rod Rosenstein’s departure from the Justice Department. O´Callaghan, who served as Rosenstein’s principal deputy, will be the second in command at the Justice Department until the Senate confirms a new deputy. Jeffrey Rosen has been nominated, but not yet confirmed, for deputy attorney general. “Ed is a top-notch attorney whose intellect, competence, judgment, and experience are evident in every task he takes on,” Barr said in a statement.

The White House released a statement announcing Trump´s decision to pardon Michael Behenna, who was sentenced in 2009 to 15 years for shooting and killing Ali Mansur Mohamed. The move comes after repeated requests from Oklahoma´s attorney general for Trump to pardon Behenna. "Mr. Behenna’s case has attracted broad support from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public," the White House said, noting that more than two dozen generals and admirals as well as

While Chicago's beaches remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, dozens of people gathered in an area near the city's Montrose Beach Saturday, prompting criticism from Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Lightfoot posted a social media showing several individuals, many of them who appeared to not be abiding by social distancing guidelines, in a grassy area near boat docks. "It's called a pandemic, people," the mayor tweeted. "This reckless behavior on Montrose Beach is what will cause us to shut down the parks and lakefront. Don't make us take steps backwards." The mayor also tweeted she "stopped by to see for herself," and the situation is being addressed.

Hillary Clinton leveled a jocular broadside against New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd on Saturday, pointing out that the writer appeared to forget wholesale that Clinton chose a man to run as her vice president during the 2016 election. Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

I didn’t set out to compost Sean Hannity. It was something I settled on after considering several other options and rejecting them one by one. The first was leaving him in the basement indefinitely. That worked for a while. I could almost forget about him there, but then I would go down with a basket of laundry and see him and think, I have to do something. I should explain: I don’t mean the man himself, but Hannity the book. It’s called “Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty Over Liberalism.” It’s part of a collection I have: right-wing culture war books from the Fox-News-angry-White-person’s superhero universe.

The spokesman said Saturday that the band of travelers would be stopped on their way to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, in the name of preventing coronavirus from spreading any further.

The mass gathering at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally amid the pandemic is too crazy even for the company whose name is all but synonymous with the annual event.

The town’s main intersection is Main Street and Harley-Davidson Way. The plaza at the center of Sturgis is the Harley-Davidson Rally Point, and those who assemble there stand on a huge Harley-Davidson Logo.

Adbusters was the group credited with creating the Occupy Wall Street movement that ‘occupied’ not only Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan, but much of our news coverage in 2011. Occupy Wall Street never went away in spirit. In many ways, it set the stage for and is the inspiration of the current Anifa anarchist movement. Now Adbusters has a new project, a 50-day ‘siege’ of the White House in the run up to the November 3 election. September 17 is significant, because that was the date in 2011 that the occupation of Zuccotti Park started.
