More than a decade after he was first accused of sexual misconduct, Bill Cosby will go to trial. During a pretrial hearing Tuesday, a Pennsylvania judge found enough evidence to proceed with a trial. Cosby's next court date will be July 20. Cosby faces three counts of felony indecent assault from a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at his alma mater, Temple University. She was the first of more than 50 women who have accused the comedian of sexual misconduct. If convicted, Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison.

Lawmakers in Oklahoma approved a bill Thursday that would make performing abortions a felony and revoke the medical licenses of any physician who assists in such a procedure. This sweeping measure, which opponents have described as unconstitutional and unprecedented, now heads to the Republican Gov. Mary Fallin. She will have five days to decide whether to sign the bill, veto it or allow it to become law without her signature, and her office did not immediately respond to a request Thursday about her plans. read more

If you were alive during March 2016, and I'm betting you were, you witnessed U.S. history.

One stunning feature from the March 2016 temperature map was just how universally warm the month was. Every one of the 357 climate divisions across the contiguous United States and Alaska ended up - at least - in the "warmer than normal" category. That's harder than it sounds: it means each of those divisions ended up in the top third of their own histories.

Something was amiss in Arizona on Tuesday. As Hillary Clinton claimed victory in the state's Democratic primary, thousands of voters were left out to dry, with shuttered polling places, endless lines, and widespread reports of disenfranchisement.

In Maricopa County, which includes the capital Phoenix, voters waited up to five hours to cast a ballot after the County Elections Office slashed the number of polling sites from 200 in 2012 to just 60 this year. As the state's most populous county, this amounted to more than 20,000 voters for every available polling location.

There were other issues too. A number of polling places reportedly ran out of ballots while four locations in Tucson received bomb threats forcing at least one to evacuate.

The disenfranchisement did not escape the attention of others, either, including Sanders himself.

"It's a national disgrace that people have to wait hours to cast a vote in any election."

Who is the bigger idiot - O'Keefe or the fools who listen to him?

What the left hates about him is the truth he exposes. Acorn was crooked, Planed Parenthood is a profit making business, SEIU was run by an embezzler.

What the left hates is you and your cohorts continuing to spread proven lies.

The accusations against ACORN were proven to be false.

The accusations against Planned Parenthood were proven to be false.

Not sure what the SEIU has to do with any of this as O'Keefe was not involved in uncovering that and the Republicans have just as many embezzlers and fraudsters (if not more) in their ranks. Guess you just threw that in there for a little spice. As far as I know the SEIU organization itself was not convicted of anything illegal.

Left leaning organizations tend to be geared toward expanding rights of the People while right-wing organizations appear to be geared toward reducing the rights of the People. How do you explain that Mr Libertarian?

How do you feel about organizations like ALEC's (if you don't know who ALEC is look it up) trying to prohibit activists from, among other things, "entering an animal or research facility to take pictures by photograph, video camera, or other means with the intent to commit criminal activities or defame the facility or its owner." It also proposed the creation of a "terrorist registry" that would contain the names, addresses and photographs of those convicted under the proposed law.

How do you feel about ALEC's attempts to also inspire voter suppression measures and limit democratic participation?
