“Caitlyn” Jenner is now blogging for the Huffington Post. 

At the beginning of the week, the news outlet revealed that Jenner will be authoring an original series called “The Real Me,” about LGBT issues.

Talk about the irony – a Latina actress named America blasting presidential candidate Donald Trump on recent comments he made describing illegal immigrants.

America Ferrera is best known for her television role on “Ugly Betty” and has been an outspoken supporter for Democrats and immigration issues. In an an open letter to Trump on The Huffington Post, Ferrera actually thanking him for his comments because it would be a catalyst for driving more Latin/Hispanic voters to the polls:

Look at the data. That’s what former Gov. John Sununu of New Hampshire recently told Huffington Post Live about climate change.

Sununu’s June 15 appearance with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski was to discuss his new book “The Quiet Man,” which offers an insider’s perspective of George H.W. Bush’s presidency. Sununu served as White House Chief of Staff during that time.

On Friday's Anderson Cooper 360, during a discussion of revelations that Spokane NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal is a white woman who has spent years pretending to be black, liberal CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill oddly asserted that her actions constitute "the ultimate exercise in white privilege."

Ironically, after enumerating several reasons why blacks may want to pretend to be white for gain instead of the reverse, Hill ended up fretting that Dolzal may have deprived the university that hired her of being able to discriminate against her for being white if they wanted to hire an actual African-American to teach African-American studies.

As noted in my previous related post, one of the authors of a late-2014 study which made the nonsensical claim that “a single conversation (can) change minds on divisive social issues, such as same-sex marriage,” causing "a cascade of opinion change," issued a retraction last week, because the data supporting it was faked. Since it was published in Science Magazine — and because it conveniently fit a leftism-advancing agenda — numerous press outlets ran stories on the study's results.

Now they're all having to run retractions and corrections. Besides the obvious problem that the lies have gotten a long head start, let's look at how the seven original publishers identified by Retraction Watch, as well as the Associated Press, have handled the matter. All too often the answer has been: "Not very well."

"Science" has a problem — or more accurately stated, those who produce and publish "scienitific" studies — have a problem. Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, one of the leading weekly peer-reviewed general medical journals, caused quite a stir last week when he said that "much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue." That may be an underestimate.

One of the more recent such examples involves a paper published late last year in Science Magazine, which calls itself “The World’s Leading Journal of Scientific Research, Global News and Commentary."

Presbyterians chanting “Death to America!” Methodists beheading people on video, and those hateful Episcopalian fundamentalists stoning women to death for being raped. The world is clearly in the grip of a Christian terror crisis. Well, no. But Marc Lamont Hill would have CNN viewers believe Christians are as terror-prone as Islamists. 

A CNN panel with host Don Lemon, CNN conservative commentator Ben Ferguson, and Lamont Hill argued about over the recent shootings in Texas by Islamic radicals over a “draw Mohammed” cartoon contest.

BREAKING: The media is not pro-gay enough. In fact, according to Michelangelo Signorile, the media is explicitly anti-gay. It’s hard to argue with crazy. 

The editor of Huffington Post’s Gay Voices, Signorile, is calling for the media to be intolerant “of all forms” of “bigotry against LGBT people.” And by bigotry, he means anything less than celebration.

For the first time since Norman Thomas, America finally has a viable self-proclaimed socialist presidential candidate in the form of Senator Bernie Sanders. However, the Huffington Post tells us not to panic. After all, Sanders is not just a socialist.  He’s a “democratic socialist.” That makes it okay.

Something hasn't seemed right about the Memories Pizza story from the get-go. Now I know why.

In a Tuesday report, TV Station ABC 57 cited the Walkerton, Indiana business's Crystal O'Connor as saying that, in the station's words, they "don't agree with gay marriages and wouldn't cater them if asked to." In other words, they've never been asked to. The non-story which ignited a national firestorm is the result of a dangerously irresponsible ambush. The reporter involved admitted as much in a tweet late this morning:

Celebrities, high-profile executives and media outlets gunning for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and the state’s new religious freedom law are a “lynch mob,” Newt Gingrich said today in a HuffPost Live interview.

Everyone from singer Miley Cyrus to Apple CEO Tim Cook has taken a shot at Indiana SB 101, legislation that the “lynch mob” has decided opens a universal door for discrimination against gay people.

Following the passage of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), the Huffington Post began churning out anti-religious freedom screeds like an assembly line of hyperbole. The most outrageous of which came from the "Reverend" Susan Russell, who called the law a "perversion of religion into a weapon of mass destruction."

It’s remarkable how negatively this religious leader views religious history:
