Trump Goes Full Conspiracy Theory, Claims US Is Being Invaded

Donald Trump says '100pc' he will declare national emergency if Democrats don't budge on wall

Donald Trump has said “100 per cent” he will declare a national emergency to build his Mexico border wall if he fails to reach a deal with the Democrats to end the government shutdown.  In his strongest comments yet on the matter, the US president said he would “definitely” take the move if the Democrats continued to refuse to given him $5.7 billion for the wall.  Calling a national emergency could get Mr Trump out of his current bind, opening up new powers that could allow him to push forward c...

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2018, Including His Forthcoming Netflix Projects

It has become a tradition for Steven Soderbergh to release a list of everything that he watched throughout the preceding year, encompassing feature films, television shows, and short films, and he certainly didn’t slow down his viewing habits at all this year, even if he maybe spent too much time watching the Winter Olympics in February last year. Last year’s list from Steven Soderbergh features no less than nine viewings of Ocean’s 8, and since the movie didn’t come out until June 5, 2018, it ...

Despite Trump’s Vow To Own It, McCarthy Says This Is Pelosi’s Shutdown

During an interview with “Fox and Friends” Friday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blamed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for the government shutdown, suggesting she was more concerned about winning her speakership than compromising with Republicans on border wall funding. “ Well, we are going to  have to find compromise.  One thing you have to see  with the vote yesterday for  speaker, you realize why  Nancy has not been serious  about any offer.

Obamacare Was Ruled Unconstitutional By A Federal Court — But You Can Still Get Coverage

Texas-based federal judge Reed O’Connor ruled the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional on Friday, just one day before the ACA enrollment deadline in most states. The ruling would strike down popular ACA reforms such as compulsory coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and the extension of coverage to adults under 26 under their parents’ insurance plans, and potentially mean 17 million Americans could lose their healthcare.The timing has brought the future of the ACA into question, as ...

R29 Binge Club: House Of Cards Season 6

The king is dead; long live the queen. That is the mantra for the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House Of Cards, which arrived Friday, November 2. Clare Hale (star-executive producer-director Robin Wright) is using her maiden name — by the way, “maiden name” is a painfully outdated phrase — as the president of the United States. Claire’s husband Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) abandoned the position during 2017’s season 5, leading to Claire’s “My turn” ascendancy. Then, after Frank’s portra...

Despite Previous Attempts To Woo Her, Trump Slimes ‘Liberal’ Heitkamp At Rally

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — President Donald Trump urged voters Wednesday to fire “liberal Democrat” Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in November, claiming that she promised to be an independent mind but instead has voted in lockstep with her party leadership and against his agenda. Trump called instead for the election of Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, one of his staunchest allies in Congress. “When Heidi ran for office, she promised to be an independent vote for the people of North Dakota,” Trump said to an are...
