Stephen Colbert calls Trumps national emergency plan ‘insane’

Donald Trump is set to declare a national emergency in order to unlock $8 billion in additional funds for his border wall, on top of the lowered $1.375 billion allocated in a bipartisan budget bill the president is also expected to sign.  The Late Show host Stephen Colbert unpacked the troubling situation in his opening monologue Thursday night, casually calling Trump’s plan “insane.” “He claims he could get all the funding he wants for his wall if he just declared a national emergency. That, of course, would be insane,” Colbert said.  “It would be usurping Congress’s power, there would be immediate court challenges. Many in his own party have said it would set a terrible precedent of unconstitutional overreach by …

Your 2019 Valentines Day Horoscope Betches

Either way, stuffing your face with candy hearts and chocolate-covered strawberries doesn’t seem so bad, right? Besides, don’t tell me you need a boyfriend for a little self-love, because Cher Horowitz had absolutely no shame sending herself love letters, flowers, and candy just so Christian could see how desired she was, in case he didn’t already know. (I totally memorized that line.) Funny enough  star Alicia Silverstone was born with her sun in charming Libra, and I’m pretty sure she would do the same in real life. Why? Because Libras WOULD, and let’s face it: that’s one of the many reasons why they’re so adorably charming. Anyway, here’s what’s in store for you this Valentine’s Day, according to your zodiac …

How sustainable is supermarket palm oil?

In 2018, the supermarket Iceland announced that it would stop using palm oil altogether in its own-brand products. That proved more difficult than it thought and Iceland now says that work should be completed by April 2019. All the UK’s other major supermarkets use palm oil certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), but it has four types of certification which are not obvious to consumers. They are: Identity preserved – involves palm oil that can be traced back to a single certified supplier Segregated – involves palm oil that can be traced back to several certified suppliers Mass balance – where sustainable palm oil from certified sources is mixed with ordinary palm oil throughout the supply chain …

Planned Parenthood president: What gives me hope

(CNN)On Thursday, the Supreme Court temporarily blocked a Louisiana law that would require a doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the facility where she performs an abortion. That appears to be President Donald Trump’s goal. I sat in the balcony of the House chamber during last week’s State of the Union address, angry and disgusted as he called for Congress to pass laws restricting safe, legal abortion and criticized state legislation that seeks to protect access to health care. He doubled down at a campaign rally Monday night where he continued lying to the American people, scaring viewers, and shaming women and their families. I won’t repeat what he said because it’s deliberately misleading …

Chris Evans Asks Trump 1 Blunt Question About His Base

may be done playing “Captain America.”  Evans, who in recent months has not been shy about using his public profile to criticize Trump, asked why the president continued to confuse weather with climate, “despite literally everyone explaining it to you every time you tweet this ignorance.” Trump revived his “Pocahontas” slur against the Democratic presidential hopeful. Many people also interpreted his use of the term “TRAIL” to be a mocking reference to the historic government-forced relocation of Native Americans called the “Trail of Tears.” Evans said that by Hume’s logic, Trump’s “ignorance has become normalized/expected.” RELATED… Trump Fan Launches 'Incredibly Violent Attack' On BBC Cameraman At El Paso Rally John Oliver Gets Booed By Colbert's Audience Over Trump Prediction Harrison …

Border Towns ‘Safer Than Any City Trump Has Lived,’ Says Texas Congressman

Donald Trump’s fake narrative that U.S. border towns are lawless frontiers, declaring that they’re in fact “safer than any city the president has ever lived in.” McAllen, Texas (population 145,000), in Gonzalez’s district didn’t have a single homicide last year, the congressman pointed out in an interview Saturday on MSNBC. He added: “I can assure you McAllen is safer than any city the president has ever lived in. It’s much safer than New York City, it’s much safer than Washington, D.C. I could walk around the middle of the night in the city of McAllen without a single threat … this campaign rhetoric that has continued for two years really needs to stop. People need to look at FBI stats and …

Fighting climate change may be easier than we think

(CNN)With the plethora of dispiriting reports on climate change — we recently learned, for instance, that our oceans are warming at least 40% faster than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change originally thought — many elected officials have taken up the mantle of fighting global warming. Take the United States as an example. Wind and solar power are now on average the least expensive ways of generating electricity. In some locations, wind and solar energy prices are as little as one-third the cost of coal. Even without including the contribution of coal to global warming, it is simply no longer a cost-effective energy source. Wind and solar are now economically sounder investments. But what about the unreliability of renewable energy …

Cardi B Deleted Her Instagram Because People Are The Worst

After suffering sitting through five hours of Grammys coverage on Sunday night, I swore I wouldn’t devote any more mental energy to them, but here we are. The fallout surrounding the Grammys and the hip-hop community is continuing in a really unfortunate way. Cardi B’s win for Best Rap Album was historic, as she’s the first solo woman ever to win that category. But wherever you can find a woman making history, you can always find a bunch of butt-hurt dudes trying to tear her down. Cardi B deleted her Instagram last night because clearly the haters got to her. In the past couple of years, celebrities have gotten quicker and quicker to deactivate their social media accounts at the …

Is Justin Bieber And Hailey Baldwin’s Marriage Doomed? Betches

As a creative writing major, I will start my critique with one positive comment, as you do: Hailey looks stunning on the cover in a white Prada dress and Tiffany & Co jewelry. That’s the only nice thing I have to say because everything else about the cover is pretty horrific, not limited to Justin’s creepy drug dealer smirk. View this post on Instagram But I’m not here to provide an art critique. I got the sense that the article wants me to conclude that Justin and Hailey are perfect for each other, despite what tradition and/or common sense may lead many to believe. Maybe I’m just cynical, but my reading experience was a little different. As the girl sitting at the …

Does CBD Work? We Tried A Bunch Of CBD Products Betches

Okay, so I battle chronic Lyme disease and anxiety on the daily. I also train Brazilian jiu-jitsu 3-4 days/week. What I’m trying to say here is that I’m basically an ideal candidate for CBD because I’m always broken and hurting. Beauty/Skin Care whoAs someone with eczema and super sensitive skin, trying any form of beauty or skin care product on my face or body (aside from my tried-and-true usuals) has always scared me. I tried and on Sunday night after I showered and found out for myself.   I pumped a glob onto my finger and wiped what I thought was a respectable amount of serum underneath and around my eyes. I had some extra serum left over, so I …

Reality Check: Thefts of catalytic converters

Trade association the British Metals Recycling Association has said stretched resources mean the police are unlikely to prosecute scrap dealers operating illegally and are more likely to encourage them to apply for licences retrospectively. Indeed, it is not unusual to see advertisements for illegal scrap metal dealers offering cash for scrap. The Met suggests worried car-owners take steps to make their vehicles less vulnerable, such as: A serial number could be engraved on the catalytic converter to make it easier to trace and harder to sell at a reputable dealer If the converter is bolted on, it may be possible to weld the bolts shut, although that would deter only thieves working with just a spanner Protective coverings are available …
