Creationist Ken Ham makes unmarried Noah’s Ark employees sign chastity vows before hiring them

Published

on

The state of Kentucky is hoping that creationist Ken Ham’s new Ark Encounter theme park will create a lot of jobs, but it turns out those jobs come with a pretty big catch.

Fox13Now reports that Ham makes all prospective Ark employees sign a statement where they not only affirm they believe in creationism, but also disavow homosexuality and premarital sex. Ham is able to do this despite the fact that he’s receiving $18 million in sales tax incentives to build the Ark and boost tourism in the area.

Not everyone in the Ark’s hometown of Williamstown is enthusiastic about this, however. Baptist minister Bob Fox tells Fox13Now that he’s concerned about the erosion of church-state separation with projects such as this.

“There’s kinds of laws called ‘Sharia,’ where people have used legislation and the government to promote a religious faith, and I think we as Christians need to be careful that we continue to be Christian, and to be Christian in the context of the United States,” he said.

Regardless, the Ark is expected to open July 7, where it will be presumably staffed by dozens of sex-starved employees.

Here’s how lawyers enabling Trump’s obstruction can have their livelihoods stripped from them — by anyone

Published

In a column for the Daily Beast, a former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives laid out a simple way to force lawyers advising aides to Donald Trump to defy Congressional subpoenas -- or avoiding one themselves -- to stop giving bad advice by moving to have them disbarred.

According to Brad Miller, who represented North Carolina in Congress between 2003 and 2013, the way in which former President Bill Clinton's impeachment was handled -- and the penalty he eventually received -- is a road map for legal retaliation even if Democrats in Congress won't do it.

Lara Trump snarls at critics of ‘send her back’ for pushing a ‘biased, racially-charged narrative’

Published

Lara Trump, the wife of President Donald Trump's son Eric, has accused CNN anchor Anderson Cooper of pushing a "biased, racially-charged narrative" after he criticized her recent defense of the Trump administration over the "send her back" scandal.

This article first appeared on Salon.

"Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the “send her back” chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative. #FakeNews," Trump posted to her Twitter account on Saturday. She included a link to the Washington Examiner, a right-leaning newspaper which included a quote from Cooper blasting Trump for supposedly "lying" about her role in whipping up a crowd to chant "send her back" about Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Trump’s trade war with China has led to foreign investments in the US drying up: report

Published

on

Not only are U.S. manufacturers and farmers feeling the devastating brunt of Donald Trump's ongoing trade war with China -- among other countries -- now the New York Times reports that foreign investors no longer see America as a safe bet to park their money.

According to the report, "the once steady flow of Chinese cash into America, with Chinese investment plummeting by nearly 90 percent since President Trump took office."

With the report stating, the drop-off "stems from tougher regulatory scrutiny in the United States and a less hospitable climate toward Chinese investment, as well Beijing’s tightened limits on foreign spending," one analyst blamed the increasingly hostile trade relationship between the two countries.
