Michelle Duggar has never been shy about expressing her conservative political beliefs, but her recent opposition to an Arkansas law might surprise even her most far-right fans.

The TLC reality star recorded a robocall message for the citizens of Fayetteville, Ark., encouraging them to vote against an anti-discrimination law.

The legislation is designed to outlaw prejudice against transgender individuals with regard to employment, housing, and use of public facilities.

Duggar not only wants to keep current segregation policies in place, she reveals in her call that she refuses to recognize transgender people by their proper gender.

In fact, she informs callers that the new law would allow "men - yes I said men to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, [and] showers."

You can read the full text of Duggar's message below:

A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for abusing the powers of his office, but the longest-serving governor in state history denies any wrongdoing.

Perry allegedly abused the powers of the governor's office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption.

He promised publicly to nix $7.5 million in funding over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg.

This threat took place after Lehmberg, a Democrat, was convicted of drunken driving last year, but refused Perry's calls to resign from her position.

No one disputes that Perry is allowed to veto measures approved by the Legislature, as he did in following through on his promise to axe the funds.

By using public pressure to boast that he would do so as a means of trying to Lehmberg to quit, however, the grand jury felt he broke the law.

We already know dogs can do amazing things.

They can serve as alarm clocks. They can garner a crazy number of Instagram followers. They can dress as Game of Thrones characters.

But can they reach across the aisle, work with the opposing side and pass important legislation?

Such is the challenge that now faces Duke, a canine in Cormorant, Minnesota who just got elected mayor of that tiny town. We’re not joking.

Dog as Mayor

According resident Tammy Odegarrd, Duke won the election last Thursday to be honorary mayor for the year of this miniscule hamlet, which has 12 total citizens.

Gene Simmons has some advice for immigrants, and it's not exactly politically correct. But as an immigrant himself, he feels direct is the way to go here.

During an interview with the Huffington Post, the rocker who moved to the country with his family at the age of 8 says people doing this need to assimilate.

"The politically correct climate is bulls--t," the 64-year-old Simmons said. "You don't want to upset anybody by saying, 'Learn to speak goddamn English.'"

"But, as an immigrant, I'm telling you: Learn to speak goddamn English."

"It is the key that will unlock the keys to the kingdom," the KISS rocker went on. "If you make the effort, all the possibilities of this culture will open up for you."

That effort, he says, "will give you all the rewards that I've gotten."

"I wasn't born here and America enabled me to become a team owner ... to have reality shows, to be in a rock band and to have licensing and merchandise and a restaurant chain."

Simmons says it's "too bad" if people are offended by his quote, but "learn to speak a language correctly! It's not easy. By the way, you don't have to."

The Secret Service dealt with the world's cutest threat last night when a toddler squeezed through the White House security gates and on to the North Lawn, triggering an automatic lockdown.

As a result of this breach, President Obama’s residence went into high alert and Pennsylvania Avenue was closed (per protocol) until the pint-size interloper was apprehended.

Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service, told the media that the unidentified child would not face any serious charges.

For those parents out there struggling to find the best ways of talking to kids about the Second Amendment, boy do we have the perfect children's book for you.

My Parents Open Carry was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, the co-founders of Michigan Open Carry who feel this issue can't be discussed early enough:

My Parents Open Carry Book

Brian and Nathan decided to pen a book on packing heat in public because, well, they "looked for pro-gun children's books and couldn't find any."

Given the countless number of children killed or injured by firearms each year, one can understand why. The authors feel this is an unfair statement, however.

The synopsis for My Parents Open Carry is as follows:

"Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together."

What's not so typical about this family, the book educationally points out, "is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense."

Former White House press secretary and outspoken gun control advocate James Brady has died at the age of 73, his family said in a statement Monday.

The family cited "a series of health issues" for the long-time political spokesman and figure who was paralyzed during a shooting 33 years ago.

"Over the years, Jim inspired so many people as he turned adversity into accomplishment," the family said in the statement, referencing the attack.

That attack was the 1981 assassination attempt on his boss, President Ronald Reagan. Brady went on to lead a gun control campaign that bears his name.

The federal law that requires background checks be conducted on handgun buyers, The Brady Bill, passed in the ensuing years, to James' great pride.

"Few Americans in history as directly responsible for saving as many lives as Jim," said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Yesterday, Liam Payne (sort of) went full frontal on Instagram.

Today, fellow One Direction member Zayn Malik made even more waves online; not by taking his clothes off, but by showing support for Palestine in its endless bloody conflict with Israel.

Like others such as Rihanna have done before him, Malik Tweeted #FreePalestine yesterday evening, taking a controversial stance in a war that continues to claim more and more lives each day.

Unlike Rihanna, however, Malik did not delete the Tweet as soon as backlash arose.

And that backlash surely has arisen.

Sarah Palin is giving the people what they want (or want they want to be up in arms about) by starting her own subscription-based online network.

The Sarah Palin Channel, which went live on Sunday, bills itself as a "direct connection" between the former Alaska governor and her supporters.

Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, vows on her homepage that the new political channel has "no need to please the powers that be."

"Are you tired of the media filters?" Palin asks. "Well, I am."

"I always have been. We're gonna do something about it," she adds, promising, "we'll talk about the issues that the mainstream media won't talk about.

Palin says she will oversee all content on the channel, which is either a good or a bad thing depending on how you view Sarah (to state the obvious).

By now, it's all but guaranteed that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016. She's a virtual lock to receive the Democratic nomination and she's the current front-runner to succeed Barack Obama in the highest office in the land.

If the details revealed in a new tell-all book turn out to be true, however, Hillary's most important political ally could turn out be her biggest liability.

The book is titled The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents, and according to those who have received advance copies, author Ronald Kessler hits the Clintons the hardest.

Kessler reportedly makes some shocking claims about Bill's still very active sex life - specifically with regard to the 42nd president's frequent liaisons with a busty blonde mistress nicknamed "Energizer."
