    Isn't it time to stop talking about Kyrsten Sinema's inauguration dress?

    Opinion: We're still talking about her inauguration dress weeks later, and that sends an annoying message about what we value most. Can we stop talking about the dress Sen. Kyrsten Sinema wore to her inauguration? Every inch of fabric has been dissected repeatedly, on both sides of the aisle, as if it were an extension of the woman. Some said it was inappropriate – sleeveless! With fur! And all that pink! – while others said it was a fierce statement of independence, a welcome middle finger to the D.C. establishment. Good grief, people. It was just a dress. Look, I know people are going to react (often negatively) to what women wear. It's human nature to judge a book by its cover, and no matter

    White House pushes long odds strategy for wall

    But even Republicans on the Hill recognize the idea is not likely to succeed pending a shift in Democratic thinking. The White House has a new, long-shot idea for getting President Donald Trump's border wall: persuading the Senate to take up the president's wall request to force a deal with the Democrats, then reopen the government. As the government shutdown enters its fifth week, the White House wants the Senate to take up legislation that would provide $5.7 billion for a barrier along the southern border, among other options that have been discussed with GOP leaders. Vice President Mike Pence and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner met Thursday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.),

    Brian Howey column: Profiles in discouraged

    INDIANAPOLIS – For two years, Republicans controlled the White House and both chambers in Congress. They wouldn't pass funding for a concrete or steel border wall. In September 2017, USA Today asked every Republican whether they would fund what was then a $1.6 billion appropriation for the wall. Fewer than 25 percent of House and Senate Republicans were willing to stand up for the legislation. It found only 69 of 292 Republicans on Capitol Hill said they would vote for the wall. President Trump has now partially closed the federal government over the wall. The showdown began in mid-December, with Democrats poised to retake the House. On Dec. 11 in a contentious Oval Office meeting with House

    Team that spoofed Pence has new picture story, on immigrants

Writer Jill Twiss and illustrator EG Keller are collaborating on The Someone New, HarperCollins Children's Books announced on Wednesday.

    President Pence? That vision should terrify women

    Karen Pence is not just the wife of the US vice-president, she's an empowered career woman in her own right. While her husband works tirelessly alongside Trump to make America white again, Karen Pence, it was announced this week, is returning to her old job teaching kids art. The Christian school in northern Virginia where Pence will be working requires its teachers to agree that they won't engage in or condone “homosexual or lesbian sexual activity” and “transgender identity”. A policy that seems to chime perfectly with the vice-president's own bigoted worldview – Pence has a long history of homophobia and transphobia.

    The 46th Annual March for Life rally was held on the National Mall in Washington D.C. Friday afternoon, an event to demonstrate objections to the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v Wade decision. (Jan. 18) WASHINGTON – Thousands of anti-abortion activists, including many young people bundled up against the cold weather gripping the nation's capital, gathered at a stage on the National Mall Friday for their annual march in the long-contentious debate over abortion. Signs reading "Choose love, Choose life," "I am the pro-life generation," and "Defund Planned Parenthood" dotted the crowd gathering under hazy, wintry skies at the morning rally.

    Karen Pence teaches at school that bans LGBT students and staff · PinkNews

    Vice President Mike Pence's wife Karen Pence has taken on a part-time job as an art teacher in a Christian school that bans LGBT+ students and staff. The Second Lady, who is an illustrator and an advocate for art therapy, announced she will return to teach at the Immanuel Christian School on Tuesday (January 15). But publications like the Huffington Post and The Washington Post were quick to point out that the school, an institution she used to work at between 2000 and 2012 when her husband served as a congressman, operates admission and employment policies that discriminate against LGBT+ students, families and staff members. The Immanuel Christian School is based in Fairfax County in Virginia,
