Merrick Garland Now Holds the Record for Longest Supreme Court Wait

Wednesday marked a bleak achievement for Merrick Garland.

He passed Louis Brandeis as the Supreme Court nominee with the longest wait for a Senate hearing.

And while Brandeis' saga ended with his 1916 confirmation Garland's prospects remain, at best, unclear.

Republicans who control the Senate — currently on summer break — still refuse to grant Garland a hearing, saying it should be up to President Obama's successor to pick a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February.

Porn viewership hits all-time high in Cleveland during Republican National Convention


The party of Lincoln, it appears, is also the party of porn.

In Cleveland, where Donald Trump was nominated by his party’s delegates Tuesday afternoon, porn viewership has surpassed—for the first time—New York City, Miami, and Los Angeles, according to a leading adult-video streaming service.

The increase in Cleveland porn traffic during the Republican National Convention is allegedly 184 percent higher than usual, xHamster reports. Cleveland is making history in all sorts of ways, shattering its previous record for porn viewership while topping out at 873,294 views.

There are more people in Cleveland watching porn right now, xHamster says, than when the Cavaliers won the NBA championship (though, it’s not entirely clear what one has to do with the other).

Having Balls near the RNC convention will get you arrested!


DOZENS OF POLICE OFFICERS swarmed protestors from the activist group CodePink outside a main entrance to the Republican National Convention Tuesday, because they were holding tennis balls.

In June, the City of Cleveland added tennis balls to its list of prohibited items inside a 3.3 square mile “event zone,” surrounding the Quicken Loans Arena. Other prohibited items included tape, rope, bike locks, and any stepstool that could be used to address a crowd. But the prohibition did not apply to guns – meaning that convention attendees and onlookers are allowed to openly carry firearms, including assault weapons.

Cleveland Police requested that Ohio Gov. John Kasich suspend open carry laws inside the “event zone,” but he denied the request.

Kerry poker-faced as press takes Johnson to task for 'outright lies'

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry kept his composure -- just -- as he endured an awkward joint press conference with his new British counterpart, Boris Johnson.

The pair faced journalists at the Foreign Office in London Tuesday in Johnson's first news conference since his controversial appointment by the UK's new Prime Minister, Theresa May.

The two met to discuss the world's most pressing issues and to reaffirm the two country's oft-vaunted "special relationship" in the face of the UK's decision to leave the EU, but the tone from the assembled reporters was combative.

Johnson was taken to task by the AP's Brad Klapper for what he cast as insulting references to world leaders and other notable figures, including accusing U.S. President Barack Obama of having a "ancestral dislike for the British Empire" and describing presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as a "sadistic nurse in a mental hospital."

John Kerry's face when a US journalist accuses Boris of making "outright lies" is quite something.
