Bill O'Reilly 'mad at God' over sexual misconduct allegations

Bill O'Reilly has repeatedly blamed reports of sexual misconduct on a politically motivated media. On Monday, he admitted that he also blames a higher power.

"You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," O'Reilly said on the latest episode of his web series, "No Spin News." "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. Yeah, I'm mad at him."

He then said that he derives perspective from the tribulations of others, including Kate Steinle, a ...

'Sweating' blood: mysterious case leaves Canadian experts searching for answers

“In all of these cases I dug out – the 42 case reports – the patients all survived. They’re terrified because it’s really frightening to have this happen, but it seems to be quite innocuous as a symptom.”

The Perks of Being a Regular

There are 501 emails in my inbox that contain the word “Bianca.” The first, from November 2004, is an email confirming dinner plans with my roommate at the time. The last, from September 2015, is a one-line Gchat to my husband: “Bianca closed last night :( :( :(.” Nearly every week for more than a decade, I had found myself eating at Bianca, a quaint little Italian restaurant at the easternmost end of Bleecker Street. It’s where I celebrated nearly every birthday, every New Year's ...

Rock is dead. Planned Parenthood killed it.

Nobody fights the power anymore. Everybody is a sellout. And anyone who doubts this should listen to the new 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood compilation.

A fundraising project for the largest abortion corporation in America, 7-Inches features more than two-dozen tracks from about as many artists, mostly album rejects repurposed into protest ballads regurgitating groupthink in order to win accolades from progressive politicos. It's pathetic.

Planned Parenthood's very-own Cecile Richards ...

The DEA Says It Came Under Fire During a Deadly Drug Raid. Its Own Video Suggests Otherwise

The Drug Enforcement Administration has for five years steadfastly defended the behavior of its agents in a late-night drug seizure carried out with Honduran forces on the remote Mosquito Coast, a mission that resulted in the deaths of four Honduran civilians.

In the DEA’s view, the dead — one man, two women and a 14-year-old boy — were among those on a boat that shot at a canoe carrying a joint DEA-Honduran anti-drug team. The DEA said it had evidence in the form of night-vision video ...

Border Patrol agency applicants keep admitting to serious crimes during polygraphs

Customs and Border Protection has an employment crisis. After a massive growth in ranks through the 2000s, the agency has been steadily losing Border Patrol staff since 2011, even as President Trump demands more. The problems are manifold, including low pay for jobs in remote areas. To widen the applicant pool, some lawmakers are now trying to do away with a prominent hurdle: polygraph exams. But documents show the polygraph interview has been catching an array of disturbing crimes at Customs, ...

Snap reportedly stuck with ‘hundreds of thousands' of unsold Spectacles

Spectacles were one of last winter’s hottest gifts, but apparently demand for them quickly died off and left Snap in a bad position. The Information reports that Snap expected demand for Spectacles to continue after the holidays and ordered “hundreds of thousands” of additional units. But after it opened sales to a wider audience, that didn’t happen, and those units are now reported to be sitting around in warehouses, unsold.

It’s not known exactly how many Spectacles have been sold ...

Bear in Myanmar has giant tongue removed by team of vets

A bear had emergency surgery to remove its tongue after it became so heavy that it lolled out of his mouth and dragged along the floor.

“Having to carry around 3kg of tongue is not normal and that’s a lot of weight on his jaw and head. Also, since he was dragging it around on the floor, from a hygiene point of view it’s pretty unpleasant and he couldn’t ever close his mouth. Now he should be able to close his mouth and manipulate food."

Black activists unknowingly organized events for Russia, helping effort to create divisions in U.S.

While we anxiously await the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump and company’s ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign, there is one thing about Russia that we know for sure: the Russian government tried to exploit America’s racial division and xenophobia in order to foment chaos and manipulate voter sentiments by using fake Facebook ads.

But it turns out that they didn’t stop there. Russian troll farms also contacted black activists in ...

School shootings and the brutalisation of boys

Much has been written and said about the role of masculine conditioning and patriarchal beliefs in cases like Eliott Rodger and the role misogyny plays in charging and inspiring their crimes.

The standard feminist theory (most popularly expressed by Michael Kimmel in books like Angry White Men) is that these young men – and they are almost if not quite always young men – are the extreme fringes of toxic masculinity and ‘aggrieved entitlement.’ Basically they are overcome by anger at ...

Pollution kills 9 million people each year, new study finds

Dirty air in India and China. Tainted water in sub-Saharan Africa. Toxic mining and smelter operations in South America. Pollution around the globe now contributes to an estimated 9 million deaths annually — or roughly one in six — according to an in-depth new study published Thursday in the Lancet. If accurate, that means pollution kills three times more people each year than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined, with most of those deaths in poor and developing countries.
