TODAY, the Vice President cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate on a vote to move forward with repealing Obamacare. The vote, which was initially postponed as Senator John McCain of Arizona was recovering from surgery following the removal of a brain tumor, opens the Senate to days of debate and votes on the repeal and replacing Obamacare.

Regardless of what the Senate approves, it will still need to clear the House. More on that as details develop.

ISIS has been publicly killing gay and bisexual men. Now … the gays are fighting back. The International Revolutionary People’s Guerrilla Forces, a group of international volunteers fighting with Kurdish forces in Northern Syria announced the formation of a new LGBTQ fighting group … The Queer Insurrection and Liberation Army, or TQILA for short.

In the announcement, TQILA is said to be ready to “smash the gender binary and advance the women’s revolution as well as the broader gender and sexual revolution.”

It continues … “TQILA members have watched in horror as fascists and extremist forces around the world have attacked the Queer community and murdered countless of our community members citing that they are ‘ill’, ‘sick’ and ‘unnatural’. The images of gay men being thrown of roofs and stoned to death by Daesh [another name for ISIS] was something we could not idly watch,”.
