    Nicole Saphier, MD is a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and bestselling author of 'Panic Attack.' Her opinions are her own and not reflective of her employers.  An uncomfortable truth has become obvious as anxiety over the worsening infant formula shortage grows. For potentially millions of parents and children, it didn't have to be this way. At birth, 1 in 5 newborns receive formula within the first couple days. By three months, less than half are exclusively breastfed. As the shortage worsens, some babies may go without food and risk becoming malnourished while parents struggle to find formula, are unwilling to change brands or unable to create homemade remedies (which pediatricians warn against because they may not meet the nutritional needs of infants). Breastfeeding is physiologically more advantageous to mother and child, yet breastfeeding is underutilized in this country. The formula shortage has highlighted our collective, self-induced frailty related to feeding our infants. And part of the problem is that we are discouraged from talking about it. To be clear,...
    It is no secret to anyone that I am not a fan of President Donald Trump. So, this may surprise some readers to hear me take this position: I am calling on the most famous podcaster in the world, Joe Rogan to interview the most controversial president in modern history. Now let's be clear, I felt that during the four years that Trump was president, whatever ideological or legislative accomplishments he achieved, were outweighed by his unleashing of mental, emotional, and physical chaos that wreaked havoc all over our country in various forms. One of the tragedies of that time is that if Trump could have curbed any of his maniacal impulses, even a little bit, he might still be president. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden's approval ratings continue to slide and Vice President Kamala Harris continues to give nonsensical speeches during which she sounds more like a high schooler caught giving a report for which she hasn't prepared, than one of the most powerful women in the world. All of this presents Republicans with a golden opportunity to retake the...
    Former First Lady Melania Trump released a scathing statement Friday in response to reports that alleged she was raising money for a charity that didn't exist.   'Those who attack my initiatives and create the appearance of impropriety are quite literally dream killers,' she said. 'They have canceled the hopes and dreams of children by trying to cancel me.'  On Saturday, The New York Times reported that Trump was selling tickets for an April 'Tulips and Topiaries High Tea' event in Naples, Florida, where an unspecified amount of money would go toward 'Fostering the Future.'

    First Lady Jill Biden did not feel "guilty" about being white after her visit to an Alabama school On Wednesday, Alabama state legislators are set to begin discussing the amorphous and still-never-before-taught-below-the-college-level Critical Race Theory (CRT) in the Yellowhammer State’s schools. Just before the start of the 2021-2022 school year, the Alabama State Board of Education officially “banned” critical race theory from being taught in or around its 1,637 schools. The vote to ban CRT was 7 to 2, with seven white Republicans voting to ban it and two Black Democrats voting to keep education standards in school somewhat higher than what can be taught to a goldfish. At the time, Michael Sibley, director of communications for the Alabama State Board of Education, told WBHM “It will have no impact on curriculums or any education standards. “Alabama doesn’t teach CRT. The resolution basically says we still don’t teach CRT.” Of course, everybody with some understanding of how ignorance works knew that the strange symbolism being pushed by right-wing think tanks—to use culture war bigotry to crush public education—was a promise to racists everywhere that their child’s...
    Bill Burr voiced his opinion about cancel culture and how it doesn't affect his stand-up material in the slightest. The comedian appeared on The Pat McAfee show this week and shared his take on why he doesn't lose sleep worrying about being "canceled" online.  "This is a time to be irreverent, and it's also a time to be empathetic," Burr reasoned. "And you have to know how to do both. These people that are on the extreme right and left, I think, only represent about 15% of the population. And any time you're hardcore or extreme, you inevitably become intolerant. I just feel like 85% of the country on the right and the left is kind of sitting there, when are dad and mom going to stop screaming at each other." "The thing is, I don't do anything in my act that's malicious," he added. "I'm not going out there to hurt anybody. But like, I also have the right to say whatever I want to say and say it the way I want to say it." GRAMMYS NOMINATE LOUIS...
    AN UPSET woman explained that she was too broke to buy basic hygiene products for her family, but her husband refused to cancel his pricey £80 per month TV subscriptions and suggested she stop buying baby formula instead. The husband, 37, who is currently unemployed, claimed that his TV channels were a right not a privilege and if she wanted to save money, perhaps she could switch back to breast feeding, even though it caused her pain. 1A woman explained she was broke but her husband refused to cancel his Tv subscriptionsCredit: Getty The mum-of-two, 32, felt that her fella shouldn't be spending part of her salary on the TV when there were so many other things the family was doing without. Writing on Reddit she said: "I'm the breadwinner and have a toddler and a 9-month-old baby. Their needs are never-ending and everything I buy is expensive. "My husband is unemployed but uses part of my salary for his subscription/paid streaming services which cost about 80+ a month for Hulu (premium) Netflix, HBO, Amazon, ESPN+ and more. "I...
    Emily Ratajkowski alleges in her new book that Robin Thicke sexually assaulted her on the set of the Blurred Lines music video in 2013 — but she insists that she doesn't believe in 'canceling' him and doesn't even think he's a bad guy. The 30-year-old model — whose book of essays, My Body, was released on Tuesday — reflected on the uncomfortable moment when Robin, 44, drunkenly put his hands on her bare breasts during the shoot, admitting on a new episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast that she'd pushed the memory from her mind for many years. But though she chose to include it in the second chapter of her book, Emily said she had no intention of encouraging fans to cancel Robin, and she is sure he has plenty of good qualities. 'I don't believe in canceling someone,' she said. 'I'm sure that Robin Thicke has a lot of wonderful things about him. I don't believe in good guys and bad guys. I think our world needs to understand that we live in a culture that allows...
    President of the Seattle Police Guild Mike Solan told "The Faulkner Focus" Tuesday why his union members are pushing back on the vaccine mandate for officers, warning about how many cops are leaving the ranks. SEATTLE POLICE UNION BLASTS ‘GROSS MISMANAGEMENT’ AFTER VACCINE MANDATE DEADLINE: 'PUBLIC SAFETY CRISIS' MIKE SOLAN: That's something else, removing any diversity of thought. They want to cancel police unions because we're the last bastion of some type of reasonable pushback against the unreasonable political public safety messaging coming from our elected officials because it's the activist culture, especially here in Seattle, that are driving the public safety political discourse.  And since we've been so boisterous in our pushback against that. We're going against the norm and going against the norm is causing an optics problem for elected officials.  … This is an optics battle, especially in the media, and we're all in here to protect jobs and inform our community that we humbly serve of what the reality is. We're dealing with truths and facts. The other side is dealing with completely covering up, in...
    "The thing is you can't say anything these days without being canceled," Collins told the paper. "What am I allowed to say?" She then gestured to the floral arrangement on the table and asked, "Am I allowed to say, 'These orchids are fake'? Because they are." "Well, forget it!" she continued. "I'm not kow-towing to cancel culture. Can't say this, can't say that. I'm like my father [the late theatrical agent Joe Collins] in that regard. Non-diplomatic. I think it's a Gemini thing." Collins also went off on attempts by society to cancel the historic import of World War II-era British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. She told the Times that she "hates the way they are disavowing Churchill, who saved us, saved us from the Nazis," Yahoo Entertainment reported. "I was too young at the time to realize, but they were on our doorstep," Collins continued. "If it hadn't been for Churchill, we would all be walking around with swastikas."
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It’s no secret that students struggled with distance learning. And a new law was intended to ensure last year’s grades don’t impact kids’ academic future. But the deadline to take advantage is it is just days away and CBS13 investigative reporter Julie Watts has compiled data that reveals some families may not realize they have options. READ MORE: As Californias Eviction Ban Ends, Some Protections Remain The law is AB 104 and it’s intended to help kids who got bad grades last year- in a number of ways. The governor extended a key deadline last week — allowing kids to essentially erase bad grades from their transcripts, but they must act before Friday. And we found big discrepancies when we asked schools: how many kids are taking advantage of this? The pandemic learning loss is undeniable and many students have the grades to prove it. But AB 104 was intended, in part, to help replace those bad letter grades with pass/no pass on their transcript instead. That means for high schools students a C or a D might not...
    Sharon Osbourne isn’t interested in returning to TV after her high-profile exit from "The Talk" earlier this year.  Osbourne faced allegations of racism at the time that ultimately led to her jumping ship with the long-running talk show after years on the air. Speaking in a preview for the upcoming Season 5 premiere of "Daily Mail TV," Osbourne explained that she doesn’t feel television is a "safe place" anymore given the proliferation of cancel culture.  "Right now, it’s not a safe place to be. Because the slightest thing, the slightest word and you’ve pissed off half the nation," she says in the clip that was shared with "Fox & Friends" Monday. "I don’t want to put myself up for that grief, I really don’t." The former reality star announced she was leaving the daytime talk show just weeks after she had a heated exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood in which she expressed her support for Piers Morgan after he left "Good Morning Britain" over differing opinions about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.  SHARON OSBOURNE WRESTLES...

Posting on Mumsnet, the woman explained that she and her partner have been struggling financially but her fiancé blew hundreds of pounds during his bachelor's party. 1A woman has been left devastated after finding out her husband went to a strip club on his stag doCredit: Getty "We are struggling for money at the moment but we didn't want to cancel the wedding and lose the money we had already paid so we have managed to scrape it together and we are eloping just us, our toddler and our parents," she explained.

    JOE Biden has rubber-stamped plans to extend the pause on federal student loan payments until 2022 as Covid cases continue to surge. Payments were halted last year after Congress passed the CARES Act and were due to restart in September - but this has now been pushed back until January 31. Biden's administration has described this as the "final extension", however. Those who have borrowed money do not need to make payments during this time and interest will not be added onto the remaining balance. “The payment pause has been a lifeline that allowed millions of Americans to focus on their families, health, and finances instead of student loans during the national emergency,” Education Secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement. “As our nation’s economy continues to recover from a deep hole, this final extension will give students and borrowers the time they need to plan for restart and ensure a smooth pathway back to repayment."

    Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) is among a vexed group of lawmakers coming forward with threats to cancel ice cream after Ben & Jerry’s announced this week it wouldn’t renew its current license agreement with its manufacturer in Israel which also distributes frozen treats to the West Bank. “If Ben & Jerry’s wants to have a meltdown & boycott Israel, OK is ready to respond. Oklahoma has an anti-boycott of Israel law in place,” Lankford wrote on Twitter Wednesday. More than two dozen states have laws opposing boycotts of Israel. The Oklahoma Republican urged his state to “immediately block the sale of all #Benandjerrys” to Oklahomans. The meltdown comes after the top-selling ice cream maker said a statement that it was “inconsistent” with its values to sell its ice cream in “the Occupied Palestinian Territory.” The Vermont-based company, founded by outspoken liberal activists Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, said it would find another way to stay in Israel after its existing agreement expires at the end of next year. The resulting war on ice cream has been swift. “Now we...
    KTTH Radio talk show host Jason Rantz spoke Monday to Fox News about how aspiring radio and podcast personalities can break into such a competitive industry, particularly in the age of cancel culture.  Rantz participated in a discussion at Turning Point USA's Student Action Summit in Tampa called "From Podcasting to Broadcasting, Breaking In and Standing Out," speaking to young conservatives about successfully building their own brand. "Make sure you know what you want to say and why you want to say it. What is your messaging? That's going to be your brand," Rantz summarized his advice during an interview with Fox News. "I think a lot of people get in trouble when they think they're just going to create a show and just talking for a couple of hours a day. It's not that easy, not everyone can do it, and you have to really be clear as to what your intentions are and what your goals are. And I think that if you have good content, you're going to succeed. It will find an audience." The Seattle-based radio...

    COLLEGE students signed a fake petition to cancel Memorial Day for "celebrating US imperialism," and want to "abolish the military." Conservative news site Campus Reform set up a fake petition and walked around the Georgetown area of Washington DC asking students to sign. 4These students said Memorial Day should be abolishedCredit: Fox News 4Some people were unsure why Memorial Day was celebratedCredit: Fox News The fake petition said that Memorial Day, which is meant to honor fallen veterans, is a "celebration of American imperialism" and should be banned. Several of the students Campus Reform interviewed agreed with the sentiment, while others were unsure what Memorial Day was for in the first place. "I'm not celebrating. I don't think Memorial Day should be a thing that we celebrate personally," one student said. "I feel like it's a celebration of US imperialism and colonialism." The same student later added, "I didn't really feel this way until I got to college and took women's and gender studies classes, and that put me on this path of, yes, f**k the US." 4Retired Marine bomb...
    DONALD Trump claimed that the Democratic Party just want to "silence and cancel millions of American voters" after a criminal probe into his organization was announced. The former president issued a lengthy statement on his website in reaction to New York Attorney General Letitia James confirming a probe into the Trump Organization "in a criminal capacity" this week. 10Trump claimed that the Democratic Party just want to 'silence and cancel millions of American voters'Credit: AP 10He said they want to 'cancel the MAGA movement'Credit: Reuters "Working in conjunction with Washington, these Democrats want to silence and cancel millions of voters because they don’t want 'Trump' to run again.'

    Protesters hold a rally in front of a building housing the Organising Committee of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games to demand the Games' cancellation in Tokyo, Japan, February 12, 2021.

Hospitals and doctors "have almost no spare capacity," the Tokyo Medical Practitioners Association said in an open letter. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A major doctors' group in Japan is calling for the Tokyo Olympics scheduled for later this year to be canceled as COVID-19 cases surge in the country. The Tokyo Medical Practitioners Association, which is made up of 6,000 primary care physicians, said in an open letter to Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga that Japan's healthcare system could be overwhelmed should the games continue as scheduled. "We strongly request that the authorities convince the [International Olympic Committee] that holding the Olympics is difficult and obtain its decision to cancel the Games," the organization said in the letter, seen by Reuters.

    Sometimes making fun of Republicans is like shooting fish in a barrel. Actually, no. They’re not fish so much as some kind of animal that can’t swim … or crawl out of a barrel. It’s like watching a drunk, elderly orangutan drown in a barrel. Yeah, that’s what I’m saying. I just add the color commentary. So the sovereign of the country we canceled 244 years ago via a violent revolution and abrupt late-night breakup text (“Yo, T-Jeff here. We done”) recently announced that British folks will need an ID to vote from now on. This prompted Republicans to do what they’re best at: grossly misrepresent what’s happening in the world outside their fever-ravaged brains.

    Candace Owens has called on parents to sue woke schools who seek to 'cancel' conservative thinking among students and teachers.  The conservative commentator said: 'Parents have to start speaking out, not just speaking out, but suing. You have to start suing the schools because they're ruining the lives of young children.' She was joined on Fox News by Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk, who added: 'Where are the adults that are going to start to stand up and realize that the next generation that's standing up for freedom in our country is worthy of protection, in this situation?  'It takes courage to be a young conservative. It's time for adults to start to protect young people's right to organize and speak their mind.'  Their comments came in the wake of two separate controversies that impacted elite New York City prep schools where parents complained their children were being brainwashed with anti-racism ideology. Owens added: 'This thought process that we keep seeing that conservatives are not allowed to exist, that being conservative is backwards and it's wrong, and especially when it comes to the...
    The editor-in-chief of the Babylon Bee has harshly criticized U.S. late-night comedians, saying they have become unfunny 'self-righteous zealots' in thrall to a 'leftist religion'. 'Over the last decade, late-night hosts across the board began to lay aside their relatable, everyman's brand of comedy and pivot toward lecturing the crowd on their moral values,' wrote editor Kyle Mann in a scathing column for the National Review. 'They went from chasing laughter — no matter who the butt of the joke may have been — to chasing applause. The result has been anything but funny,' he added. Mann pointed specifically to a recent interview with Samantha Bee, the Full Frontal late-night host on TBS, who admitted that she doesn't like to joke about President Joe Biden because she doesn't want to 'undermine' him.  Kyle Mann, editor-in-chief of the Babylon Bee has harshly criticized U.S. late-night comedians, saying they have become unfunny 'self-righteous zealots' in thrall to a 'leftist religion' Mann pointed specifically to a recent interview with Samantha Bee, who admitted that she doesn't like to joke about President Joe Biden...
    As a college graduate with a significant amount of debt left to repay, I am supposed to "love" Elizabeth Warren’s new plan to "cancel" student debt – or so the senior senator from Massachusetts recently assured people like me.  Actually, I hate it.

    In the wake of Daunte Wright’s accidental shooting by a Minnesota police officer, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) called for the purging of racism in America. Durbin said in an appearance on Tuesday’s CNN “New Day” that gun violence and racial incidents occur on “almost a daily basis,” and he asserted it is time to “cancel racism in America.” Durbin added there would be a “sincere and real effort” to create more oversight for policing in the country. “We have got to stand by the good policing and make it clear that bad policing is unacceptable,” Durbin emphasized. “And let me add, too, very quickly, there is a racial element here that is very, very real in America. The numbers tell the story. We have got to purge that racism from the administration to justice in America. He later added, “What we are seeing with Daunte Wright and with George Floyd, with Breonna Taylor, with Laquan McDonald is just a repetition — sadly just a repetition — on almost a daily basis of gun violence and a repetition of racial incidents...
    "Squad"-member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., claimed that a person is unable to be "anti-racist" unless they support cancelling student debt. In a tweet published on Monday, Pressley – one of the members of the "Squad" alongside Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. – shared an article by the Washington Post that detailed the stories of people across America with student debts. Alongside the article, the Massachusetts Democrat claimed that a person cannot stand against racism if they don’t support canceling student debt. "You can't be anti-racist if you're anti student debt cancellation," wrote Pressley. AYANNA PRESSLEY CALLS FOR ‘UNREST IN THE STREETS’ OVER TRUMP-ALLIED POLITICIANS IGNORING AMERICANS’ CONCERNS The article shared by Pressley included the stories of multiple people with student loan debts, and said the 45 million Americans who took out student loans hold a cumulative debt of $1.7 trillion.

However, the website also wrote that "Black and African American college graduates owe an average of $25,000 more in student loan...

    The Tokyo Olympic torch relay ran into big trouble on Thursday when the governor of Osaka prefecture and the mayor of the city of Osaka asked that relay legs going through the city be canceled with the games opening in less than four months. The prefecture and two others were selected on Thursday to come under strict new measures to counter rising cases of COVID-19. The new rules go into force on Monday and last until May 5.

    Hollywood elites want to "control the minds of everyone" and shut down differing political opinions, according to a conservative actor fighting back against cancel culture. Antonio Sabato Jr., alongside actor Kevin Sorbo and country music artist John Rich, spoke out Friday about their experiences in Hollywood during a panel interview on "The Faulkner Focus." Sabato, who claimed he was blacklisted from Hollywood after supporting former President Donald Trump, said that many conservatives in the industry have "had enough," and are moving to states like Texas and Florida in order to forge a career in the entertainment industry. "It’s about our freedom, it’s about the future of our country, it’s about being able to speak your mind," Sabato told Harris Faulkner. "They try to control your future, they try to control the casting directors, who you should hire, who you should not, based on their political views or other views that they disagree with."

    I have often said that today’s Republican Party is full of perverse incentives—chief among them are who gets blamed, who gets punished, and who gets rewarded for their actions. I mean, Donald Trump incited an insurrection in an attempt to overthrow a democratic election just a couple weeks ago, yet the few brave Republicans who tried to hold him accountable are much more likely to suffer real-world consequences—particularly at the hands of their own party. Case in point: Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. In the brief days after she came out for impeachment, Cheney has garnered a Q-adjacent primary challenger, censure from the Carbon County Republican Party of Wyoming, Twitter and cable news attacks from the likes of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, and serious attempts to oust her from her House leadership position by the “Freedom Caucus.” That’s a heckuva way to thank her for what was (let’s be honest) a profile in courage—especially at a time when Republican politicians were reportedly worried not only about their political futures, but also their personal safety. Yet, in rebuking Trump for his...
    The Japanese government has privately concluded that the Summer Olympics in Tokyo could be canceled due to the pandemic of the Covid-19, according to the media. « Nobody wants to be the first to announce it, but the consensus is that it is too difficult (…) Personally, I don’t think it will happen, » a source from the Japanese ruling coalition told The Times newspaper. He added that after the cancellation, Japan will focus on hosting the 2032 Summer Games, it is the closest competition, the organizer of which has not yet been determined. However, on Thursday the member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Canadian Richard Pound, stated that « the IOC has no intention of canceling the Olympics and there are no reasons for this. The official advanced that the event could be carried out without spectators from other countries. At the same time, Pound did not rule out the suspension of the Olympic torch tour scheduled for March 25 from Fukushima. The IOC announced at the end of March 2020 that due...
    Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., pushed back on "Outnumbered Overtime" Friday against CNN anchor Don Lemon's claim that people who voted for President Trump are on the side of Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. Lemon doubled down Thursday on his initial demonization of all Trump supporters following last week's riot at the Capitol. Lemon was widely condemned Wednesday night after he argued that it's valid to associate everyone who voted for Trump with neo-Nazis and KKK members who also say they support him.  "If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported," Lemon said. "You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers ... You voted on that side, and the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side." CNN'S DON LEMON DOUBLES DOWN ON LUMPING ALL TRUMP VOTERS WITH KLANSMEN, NAZIS: 'I BELIEVE WHAT I SAID' Lemon remained unapologetic Thursday night. "I truly believe that, 100 percent," Lemon told colleague Chris Cuomo.  REP....

    Dr. Anthony Fauci again warned about the need for Americans to protect themselves during the winter as he said on CNN Tuesday he is not trying to “cancel Christmas.” The vaccine rollout is underway, and Fauci said on Fox News earlier in the day that Operation Warp Speed will go down in history as a great success. But the pandemic is still raging across the country. The United States has reached over 18 million total covid cases this week, and the deal toll has reached over 300,000. Wolf Blitzer asked Fauci, “What precautions should everyone watching — should Americans be taking right now to best protect themselves during this holiday season?” Fauci reiterated that people need to continue wearing masks and avoid gatherings and wash hands. “I know everyone wants to get back to the time when Christmas was a situation where you could have many, many guests indoor congregating, having fun together.

    A so-called renaming committee in San Francisco is erasing the name the 16th president of the United States from a school because Abraham Lincoln lived a life “stained by racism.” “Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,” Jeremiah Jeffries, chairman of the committee and a first grade teacher in that California city, said. “Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions.” The president who ended slavery is now being called a racist, according to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle, which asks if Lincoln’s true character has been “whitewashed” to hide misdeeds toward Native Americans.  The reporter who wrote the piece injects her opinion about the fate of some on the names on the cancel list, including American heroes Thomas Jefferson and George Mason: Critics have called the effort to rename 44 school sites, a full third of the district’s schools, amateur — citing the committee’s justifications pulled from Wikipedia or selective...
    House Republicans are speaking out following the Democrat calls to essentially cancel traditional Thanksgiving plans out of fear of the Chinese coronavirus, with one GOP lawmaker warning Americans that “liberal politicians want freedom for themselves, but not for you.” “Nov. 7: Democrat officials celebrate in the streets. Now: Democrat officials say citizens can’t celebrate Thanksgiving. Liberal politicians want freedom for themselves, but not for you,” Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) said on Tuesday following mounting calls from Democrat leaders to modify or cancel Thanksgiving plans: Nov. 7: Democrat officials celebrate in the streets.

Liberal politicians want freedom for themselves, but not for you. #NoLockdowns — Ted Budd (@RepTedBudd) November 17, 2020 “Don’t cancel Thanksgiving. Don’t cancel Christmas. Cancel lockdowns,” Rep.

    Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday that he is supporting a petition to oppose “woke politically correct liberals” who want to remove portraits of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from West Point. “What does bother me is when you have woke, politically correct liberals who are trying to erase history,” Cotton told Fox News’  “Tucker Carlson Tonight” during an interview about America’s storied army college potentially removing portraits of and renaming buildings commemorating Lee. “West Point is not just a military academy. It is, essentially, a museum to the United States Army,” Cotton said. “And the cadets there need to learn about their history. That’s why they have a line of portraits of every superintendent of West Point. Robert E. Lee was one of those superintendents, from 1852 to 1855.” (RELATED: Trump Reads List Of Statues Commission Wants Removed From Washington — Then Throws Away Letter) “Are we going to take that painting down and pretend that he wasn’t a superintendent? When he was still an officer in the United States Army?” Cotton asked. The senator also referenced...

But that’s easier said than done, right? That’s why I tried it out. I called up some of my service providers and attempted to cut the cost of my bills. Here’s how you can learn from my successes — and improve upon my failures. (Spoiler alert: Be prepared to make sacrifices.)

This is a powerful tool to save money. These tactics can be used for securing a better deal on cable, internet, subscription services and more. First, review all of your recurring payments by identifying charges on your credit card and bank account. Then, decide if you really want (or need) those anymore.

    Amanda Marcotte August 28, 2020 4:30PM (UTC) If there was one major takeaway from this week's Republican National Convention, it's that conservatives live in mortal terror of "cancel culture," their shiny new term for what they used to call "political correctness". Even though Donald Trump controls the White House, conservatives control the courts and Republicans control the Senate, speaker after speaker insisted that the real power in this country belongs to a shadowy liberal elite with all-encompassing powers of censorship.  "The goal of cancel culture is to make decent Americans live in fear of being fired, expelled, shamed, humiliated and driven from society as we know it," pronounced Donald Trump during his interminable acceptance speech on Thursday night. "The far left wants to coerce you into saying what you know to be FALSE, and scare you out of saying what you know to be TRUE." : "We want a culture where differences of opinion and debate are encouraged, not canceled," Ivanka Trump claimed in her introduction to her father's speech that same night.  During his sweaty and red-eyed speech on the first night of the convention,...
    Chicago-area leaders urged the Illinois State Board of Education on Sunday to halt history classes that “unfairly” communicate history until an “alternative” can be found. Democratic state Rep. LaShawn Ford of Chicago said the current state history curriculum leads to a “racist society” and may cause “white privilege” before a Sunday press conference in Evanston in a release obtained by NBC 5. In the release, Ford called to replace courses and books that “unfairly communicate” history until a “suitable alternative is developed.” “When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans,” Ford said in the release. “I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history.” “Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved,” he continued.

    Alejandra Onieva attends "Alta Mar" second season preview by Netflix at Noia Festival, at the hometown of its creator, Ramon Campos, on November 8, 2019 in Noia, Spain. Sebastian Stan and Alejandra Onieva are coming under scrutiny from Twitter users who are demanding that the pair are canceled because Onieva wore an Asian dress at a party in April 2018. The couple have been linked together in various tabloid reports since July 2020. The issue began on July 13 when a Twitter user named @Angelas550 posted the photo Onieva, 28, along with her friend, Spanish journalist Casilda Aguilera. Both appear to be wearing Japanese geisha garb. The original caption on the photo was “Asian night.” The photo came from Aguilera’s Instagram account. At the time of writing, the photo has been deleted. A version of the photo also appeared on Onieva’s account. Onieva is an actor in her own-right appearing in the Netflix series, High Seas. Are you fucking kidding me.
    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of...a bunch of wealthy blowhards deciding that now, of all times, is the appropriate moment to ask us all to stop being so mean to them on Twitter. On Tuesday, Harper’s Magazine—the musty magazine of choice for musty magnates—published a ridiculous and delusional open letter signed by such luminaries as J.K. Rowling, Bari Weiss, David Brooks, Jesse Singal, and Malcolm Gladwell. The purpose of this screed? Ostensibly, to encourage “open debate.” But upon closer inspection, the upshot appears to be that writers and journalists should be able to advance whatever bullshit ideas they want without being held in any way accountable. One might ask why anyone thought now, of all times, was the moment to do this. After all, we are in the middle of a pandemic. And an urgent movement for Black lives. Another recession is looming. So is an eviction crisis, and several more issues that feel more pressing than the right to spew transphobic garbage...
    New York — Cardi B she is a woman of arms to take and she says the things as she feels them. The interpreter of “Press” has responded to all the “haters” who are inventing things about her and who want to cancel her on Twitter. And it is that the rapper from the Bronx entered the social network and saw that it was trending but did not know what the reason was. After investigating why “Cardi B Is Canceled Party” was trending, the celebrity did not miss the opportunity to defend herself from attacks against her. “I woke up and saw that people were writing ‘Cardi B Is Canceled Party.’ I said to myself, ‘what? I’m not doing anything, ”Cardi shared in an audio on Twitter. “Now I see that people are editing and saying that I have a fake Instagram. I don’t know, people think I’m a 15-year-old girl. “ Girl lies that these weird people trying to do. https://t.co/6slh0KjN9h pic.twitter.com/VWuzGy4gcc – iamcardib (@iamcardib) June 25, 2020
    Disney star Skai Jackson has recently begun using Twitter to expose teenage racists. Now, she’s facing heat for sharing details about a 13-year-old boy that fans claimed caused the kid’s parents to lose their jobs. For those unclear, Jackson has become known for posting the identities of racists online—which usually includes posting their full names, social media handles, high schools, colleges, and employers.  However, after a headline surfaced Saturday evening that a 13-year-old was expelled from school “& both of his parents lost their jobs,” Jackson called the claim “false!” on Twitter.

What a fucking loser that girl is.”  “Hi, I just want to address this situation,” Jackson wrote in response. “I never knew ‘guacamole n**** p****’ was something that was said in a meme. Please do not spread false info that his parents lost their job This screenshot is his best friend and someone else....
    Hall of Famer Rod Carew said Thursday he believes Major League Baseball should cancel the 2020 season because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Carew told CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki & Tierney” he doesn’t understand why anyone would want to play, citing the virus and the fact that no one is going to be in the stands. DIAMONDBACKS' JON DUPLANTIER RECALLS RACISM IN HIGH SCHOOL, LACK OF BLACK REPRESENTATION IN BASEBALL “I don’t see why they want to play,” Carew said. “I think you’re putting a lot of players in danger of maybe contacting this disease and not knowing what it’s going to do to them. I would just say to let the season go." He said the fans “have to understand” the circumstances. “I don’t want to watch a baseball game with no one in the stands because to me it’s not exciting that way. I think it’s crazy. I’m more concerned about the players and the players’ families than I am about playing baseball at this time,” he added. MLB COMMISSIONER ROB MANFRED MEETS WITH MLBPA'S TONY CLARK IN 'BIG...
