As additional information comes in about the despicable killer in Orlando, the complexity of the story continues to grow. Was the man a self-hating gay? Was he genuinely radicalized by ISIS, or was he simply in love with the thought of using his religion as an excuse for a killing spree? Did authorities who cleared […]
Bernie Sanders’ supporters, an easily entertained group if there ever was one, were sent into waves of ecstasy when a tiny bird recently alighted on his podium mid-speech, perhaps hoping to enjoy a refreshing bath in his impassioned flecks of flying spittle. Or maybe it was trained by someone not really clear on the whole […]
Hope n’ Change is still no fan of Donald Trump, but we won’t stand idly by while he’s blamed for the increasingly violent protests being waged by the well-funded and entirely-orchestrated Left. What we’re seeing is the culmination of over seven years of anti-Republican hate speech from the Democrats and media. Members of the GOP […]
Tonight the various contenders wishing to become president of the United States will get their first real test in the Iowa caucuses. The caucus (meaning “a gathering of Caucasians”) process involves Iowans grouping together to publicly debate which candidates have spent the most money in the state.
Following these impassioned discussions (frequently peppered with expletives like “gosh durn it!” and “hold on thar!”) the Republicans cast traditional secret ballots for their candidates, while the Democrats wave their hands in the air, shout, steal supporters from other groups, and eventually come to agreement via arm wrestling.
In what is likely a desperate and purely political attempt to make Hillary Clinton look like she wasn’t the nation’s worst-ever Secretary of State, John “You Rang?” Kerry has just come out with the least encouraging pronouncement imaginable about the throat-cutting, suicide-bombing, allegedly non-Islamic murderers of ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, or whatever the heck other name […]
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is attempting to elbow Dr. Ben Carson aside in brain expertise, claiming that if she’s elected she’ll eradicate Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. It’s a cause close to the former first lady’s heart, as both she and her husband have repeatedly suffered the devastating effects of memory loss when giving […]
The long, long wait is nearly over. Yes, we’re talking about the next Democratic presidential debate which has been curiously scheduled for Saturday night. What’s curious about that? Well, it’s the last Saturday before Christmas, so presumably most people who aren’t complete social pariahs will be at parties instead of huddling around the TV. And […]
Following criticism of his seeming insensitivity to the largest terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, Barack Obama is reluctantly making a brief pit stop in San Bernardino to express scripted condolences before continuing his flight to a 5-star multi-million dollar vacation in Hawaii. Based on his previous comments about the slaughter, we expect him […]
By wild coincidence, the president timed his ISIS speech in such a way that it would push another interesting story out of the news: accused deserter Bowe Bergdahl is now officially facing court martial and a possible life sentence behind bars. As you will recall (unless you happen to be a Democrat or a member […]
On Monday, Barack Obama gave a “powerful rebuke” to ISIS terrorists by telling them that it’s pretty much too late for them to do us in because western civilization is already doomed. And, unsurprisingly, it’s largely the fault of stinking, greedy, energy-guzzling Americans like you. Specifically, the Prophet Obama spake thusly: “I’ve come here personally, […]
As we reflect on Thanksgiving 2015, it strikes us that one of the defining qualities of the liberal left is that they demand everything but are thankful for nothing. We suppose it’s hard for them to count their blessings when they’re more consumed with covetous envy of others. And it’s seemingly impossible for them to […]
