Also there was Jumaane Williams, to gin up support for the upcoming race for public advocate — de Blasio’s old … [Read more...] about Pinkos Have More Fun

It's important to note that Harry, 35, is still recognized as a prince and direct grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, and he did not renounce, nor was he stripped of the title, but he has agreed simply not to use it. … [Read more...] about Meghan Markle, Prince Harry giving up public funding and use of HRH titles: What does that mean?
