Guest Opinion: TBS is Pushing Samantha Bee to the Curb

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor TBS is pushing Samantha Bee to the curb, which is not a strange place for someone who has spent her entire professional life in the gutter. After seven seasons, “Full Frontal” will not return in the fall. Bee is one of the most filthy-mouthed entertainers in American history. She is also a relentless anti-Catholic bigot. In 2018, she showed how low she can go when she called Ivanka Trump the “c-word.” After being blasted by critics, which did not include the National Organization for Women or the Feminist Majority, she issued an apology. “I crossed the line and I do apologize for that.” She added that “A lot of women do not want to reclaim that word. They want it gone and I don’t blame them.” A few nights later, she said that while she will refrain from using the “c-word,” she admitted that it... Read more →

After more than a dozen locations experienced record-challenging heat and one airport recorded 100-degree heat for five consecutive days, cities in the Northeast may finally see the heat wave draw to a close.

SAY IT ISN'T SO! New Study Reveals Depression is NOT CAUSED by Chemical Imbalance in the Brain

For three decades, people have been deluged with information suggesting that depression is caused by a “chemical imbalance” in the brain – namely, an imbalance of a brain chemical called serotonin. However, our latest research review shows that the evidence does not support it. Although first proposed in the 1960s, the serotonin theory of depression started to be widely promoted by the pharmaceutical industry in the 1990s in association with its efforts to market a new range of antidepressants, known as selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs. The idea was also endorsed by official institutions such as the American Psychiatric Association, which still tells the public that “differences in certain chemicals in the brain may contribute to symptoms of depression”. Countless doctors have repeated the message all over the world, in their private surgeries and in the media. People accepted what they were told. And many started taking antidepressants because they... Read more →

NRA-ILA Opinion: Armed Good Guy Stops the Bad Guy

source NRA-ILA On July 19, 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken was shopping with his girlfriend at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood, Ind. when a gunman armed with a rifle opened fire in the food court. Upon witnessing the heinous crime, Dicken acted. The young man drew the Glock handgun he was concealed carrying and engaged the shooter as he gestured for others to flee. According to reports, Dicken initially confronted the shooter at a distance of 30-40 yards. Demonstrating significant marksmanship under pressure, the armed citizen neutralized the threat in just 15 seconds - landing 8 of 10 shots on the evildoer.

CNBNews graphic file Some initial reports indicated that Dicken was lawfully carrying a firearm in the mall due to Indiana’s new NRA-supported constitutional carry law, which went into effect...

The Story Behind The Story: Only a Bridge Length...

All it takes for evil to thrive is for good men to do nothing. ~Edmund Burke \ by Dorothy Philbin | CNBNewsnet Usually when it comes to politics in Philadelphia, I take a stand that "I don't live there, work there, or pay taxes there so it isn't really my business." However, now that George Seros-backed DA, Larry Krasner, has decided to not prosecute criminals, we in New Jersey are affected. We are only a bridge length away from Larry Krasner's criminals. It is about to get worse. Philadelphia's police department is about to lose their state-wide accreditation. Why? The geniuses who administer Philadelphia's laws and order have decided that their police officers may no longer pull over a car for a minor infraction, such as a broken taillight. That was the only example used in the Chris Palmer article published in the Philadelphia Inquirer (July 22, 2022.) I wonder... Read more →
