    For years, conservatives have been complaining about the liberal bias on late night shows and Saturday Night Live. “They always attack Republicans and never go after Democrats,” the criticism goes. But this week brought forth the possibility that maybe it’s not bias, maybe it’s something else. It’s possible, judging by what we’ve just witnessed, that comedy writers don’t mock liberals because they have already become a parody, and it’s difficult, if not impossible, to parody a parody.Make no mistake, that’s what the Gang of Four, who call themselves “The Squad,” are: a parody. They’re like a Pavlovian experiment gone wrong...

    “We’re not having him set the agenda, we’re setting our own agenda.” – Speaker Pelosi, yesterday, speaking of President Trump Wasn’t it just last Friday that I tried to warn the Dems? “I’m afraid you own the racist slur, the “patriarchy,” feminist backlash, gender confusion and soon…you’ll hold exclusive rights to Russian collusion as well. Expect it all to be used against you because President Trump pushes back.” They didn’t listen, so the Pottery Barn rule - “You break it, you own it” – has been deployed. When you create chaos, you own the fallout and eventually the fallout...

    Madonna is out with her first album in four years, which means it’s time for her to wear something ridiculous, like a sequined eye patch, and say outrageous things for publicity, like that Jesus would agree with abortion. The singer went on Australian Andrew Denton's Interview, to promote the release of her new album Madame X, which came out on June 14, and the subject of religion and the Catholic Church came up several times in Tuesday night's broadcast (audio here). Denton made a joke about the Material Girl having a drink with the Pope and Madonna said, “One day...

    Miley Cyrus is in a state of rage. The sex-obsessed, eco-frenzied feminist pop star sat down with fashion magazine Elle to bash the patriarchy and the fossil-fuel devouring fools from previous generations who have handed millenials a “piece of shit planet.” The Cyrus interview checked off many of the boxes on the woke politics list, positing her own “gender queer” theory, demanding that the world understand and appreciate “bodily autonomy,” and having a religious preoccupation with “Mother Earth.” (An “angry feminist,” tired of being manhandled.) For more traditional circles, it’s impossible to see Miley as a role model, but for...

    The U.S. Army Field artillery going back again to manual methods of fire direction and gunnery after lessons of Russian intervention in Ukraine. The U.S. Army has not had to contend with electronic warfare during the long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but the conflict in eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region showed an increase of electronic attack threat levels. With the growing threat of cyberattacks, the U.S. Army Field Artillery School has placed a renewed emphasis on learning manual methods. “Bringing back the charts is a big deal,” said Staff Sgt. Chad Payne, an instructor for the 13J fire control specialist...

    It’s hard to take braying morons like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Terrorist Cheerleader Twins seriously, but maybe we should. After all, these aspiring dictatorettes are the heart, soul, and perpetually open mouth of today’s Democrat Party. We kind of assume they are jokes because, well, they are jokes, but history teaches that the socialist future they advocate is no laughing matter. They are now setting the agenda for one of America’s two great political parties. What would happen if they somehow took power? Not so funny anymore, huh? Americans are used to power changing hands in Washington; about half the...

    Due to the popularity of the "Survivor" shows, Texas is planning to do one entitled: "Survivor - Texas-Style!" The lucky contestants will all start in Dallas, drive to Waco, Austin, San Antonio, then over to Houston and down to Brownsville. They will then proceed up to Del Rio, El Paso, Odessa, Midland, Lubbock, and Amarillo. From there they will go on to Abilene and Fort Worth, and finally, back to Dallas. Each contestant will be driving a pink Prius with 15 bumper stickers which will read: 1. "I'm A Democrat" 2. "Amnesty For Illegals" 3. "I Love RAP" 4. "Boycott...

However, her homecoming ended in tragedy. By the time Trump unleashed his nativistic tirade against Omar, Nalayeh had been dead for two days.

    Kate Middleton might have watched a family friend lose the Wimbledon final Sunday-Roger Federer, who lost to Novak Djokovic, attended Pippa Middleton's wedding-but at least she came away with a cute gift for her youngest son. As Metro reports, legendary tennis player Stan Smith handed a tiny sneaker (an Adidas Stan Smith, naturally), to the Duchess of Cambridge as she sat in the royal box, signed in gold ink and dedicated to Prince Louis.

    Lying has always been a part of politics. But what we’re seeing today is extreme. Politicians’ falsehoods, eagerly parroted by celebrities, are aided by a media that, rather than acting as an impartial referee, has become an agency for Democrats and the political left. Here are the top three whoppers since President Trump took office that those sick with Trump Derangement Syndrome just won’t let go of. Trump’s Supporters Are Racist “Trump is, without question, a racist,” a senior writer at The Root named Michael Harriot, who identifies himself on his Twitter account as a “master race-baiter,” wrote recently in...

    Senate Judiciary Committee ^ | June 16, 2019 | Robert Epstein, Ph.D.
    Fortunately, there is a simple way to end the company’s monopoly without breaking up its search engine, and that is to turn its “index”—the mammoth and ever-growing database it maintains of internet content—into a kind of public commons. There is precedent for this both in law and in Google’s business practices. When private ownership of essential resources and services—water, electricity, telecommunications, and so on—no longer serves the public interest, governments often step in to control them. One particular government intervention is especially relevant to the Big Tech dilemma: the 1956 consent decree in the U.S. in which AT&T agreed to...

The boy seen in a picture posted to Facebook by the Brigham City Police Department shows him holding a sign that says "ICE COLD BEER" but in small letters above "BEER" it says "ROOT." Yes, the kid is selling root beer. It appears the boy is selling his "ICE COLD *root BEER" in front of a church.

    U.S. District Judge William H. Walls, the first male African-American judge to sit on the federal bench in New Jersey, died last week at the age of 86. Described once in a CNN headline as a “judicial renegade,” Walls had a storied — and sometimes enigmatic — history on the bench. But it was his comments during the trial of U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, when he told the senator’s attorney to “shut up” and referenced the 1977 World War II film “A Bridge Too Far” as he cautioned the parties on their tactics, that garnered him national attention in 2017....

    A watchdog group is asking the Maryland attorney general to investigate whether Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife used a charity for improper self-enrichment, according to a copy of the complaint obtained by the Washington Examiner. The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, which leans conservative, filed the complaint on Monday against the Center for Global Policy Solutions, a nonprofit organization founded by Cummings’ wife, Maya Rockeymoore. The complaint asked Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh to investigate the financial relationship between the Center for Global Policy Solutions and Rockeymoore’s for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC. The similarly named entities...

    Here we look at a wonderful, much under-appreciated, movie with special effects by Ray Harryhausen. It’s title is “Jason and The Argonauts” and it is simply beyond awesome. Words cannot describe what an impact that this move had on me as a young boy in the 1960’s. But I will try… There is a spectacular sequence in Harryhausen's most popular picture "Jason and the Argonauts" in which Jason and his crew do battle with seven sword fighting skeletons. This is surely one of the greatest special effects sequences in motion picture history. There are shots in which the screen is...

    Back in the day, I was one of the first people to start using Google as a search engine. I liked it’s clean interface, and simplicity. Of course, over the years, other people also found this to be the preferential search engine. Unfortunately, Google became big, powerful and yes, evil. They siphon up your personal information with zero regard to fourth amendment protections. They sell the information to the highest bidder, and give it away for free if the person is part of a government agency. Unfortunately, people like myself VALUE privacy. And that means that I no longer can...

    The New Jersey judge who refused to try a 16-year-old boy who was accused of rape as an adult — because he comes from a “good family” — has decided to step down, according to officials. The state Supreme Court granted Judge James Troiano’s request to resign on Wednesday and terminated his services effective immediately. The longtime family court judge reportedly retired in 2012, but was still hearing cases on a part-time basis in Monmouth County Superior Court. **SNIP** “This young man comes from a good family who put him into an excellent school where he was doing extremely well,”...
