Sean Penn ‘thanks’ Dick Cheney — an ’embittered bacteria of humanity’ — for creating ISIS

Published

Actor Sean Penn wondered aloud how Dick Cheney kept living, despite serious health problems, while someone as “beautiful” as Harvey Milk was cut down.

Penn appeared Wednesday on Conan O’Brien’s talk show, where he heard the host bring up the former vice president during his monologue.

“You mentioned Dick Cheney, this kind of, you know, embittered bacteria of humanity,” Penn said. “It’s always a surprise to me to remember that, through bionic technology and so on, this guy’s still here.”

Cheney, who has had five heart attacks since 1978, underwent a heart transplant in 2012.

“But then we have people like Harvey Milk, who were beautiful, brilliant, impactful guys, and, you know – it’s just no good deed will go unpunished, and then you’ve got the Cheneys,” said Penn, who played the slain LGBT rights activist and San Francisco city supervisor. “This is just me musing.”

Penn credited Cheney and his boss for inspiring the brutal Islamic State extremist group sowing terror in the Middle East.

“These are the guys, he and President (George W.) Bush and some others, who invented Daesh, or ISIS,” Penn said. “I mean, they really are that which created it, and so I wanted to give him a shout-out. Thanks for that.”

The truth about Bernie Sanders’ medical records: They’re encouraging — but a key detail is missing

Published

When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) landed in the hospital at the beginning of October 2019 after suffering a heart attack, it became guaranteed that his health would be an issue in the 2020 Democratic primary. The 78-year-old is known for his passionate rallies and reveling in the rigors of the campaign, but a candidate's health condition can change the course of an election, and a serious medical crisis like a heart attack puts into question his ability to do the job.

To help allay these concerns, Sanders assured voters that he would release "comprehensive" medical records. But he hasn't, and now it seems he doesn't plan on doing it. Instead, he released three letters in December from doctors describing his health positively and vouching for his ability to handle the campaign trail and potentially, the presidency.

How the question of who killed JFK emerged in an unexpected way on the 2020 campaign trail

Published

on

On Monday night in Fairfax, Virginia, Donald Jeffries, author and talk radio host, asked Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard about a book she was seen carrying, “JFK and the Unspeakable.” Published in 2008, the book is a Catholic philosopher’s meditation about the assassination of liberal president John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, one of the great historical crimes of American politics.

Gabbard replied she had not finished the book, but “from what I have read, it… speaks to what happened [on November 22] in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.”

Trump whines about losing the Time ‘Man of the Year’ award he lost to a teenage girl

Published

on

President Donald Trump goaded his audience into booing a teenager during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Trump said, "I got beaten up by Greta" -- in reference to Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who recently celebrated her 17th birthday.

The leader of the free world went on to complain about Thunberg being declared TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" award in 2019.

He said that many women wish it was still "Man of the Year" and suggested separate categories by gender, which would prevent him from competing against European teenage girls.
