  • Star Wars 9 SHOCK: Meryl Streep set to REPLACE Carrie Fisher as Leia in Episode IX?

    04/02/2018 6:38:29 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 78 replies ^ | Fri, Mar 30, 2018 | George Simpson
    The 68-year-old Streep ... played a version of Fisher in Postcards from The Edge. [F]ans have petitioned for the Leia recasting, with almost 8000 signatures gathered. The petition states: “As the fans of STAR WARS and Carrie Fisher, we really want Leia to shine in Episode IX and we certainly do not want her to be written out of the film abruptly without a reasonable plot. Despite fan support, it’s not clear if a majority would be comfortable with such recasting following Fisher’s death. After all, to the fan base she is and always will be Princess Leia. However there...

    Nearly 17 months after losing the Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton has announced she will embark on a historic apology tour. Dubbed the "I Love the Deplorables Tour," Clinton will tour the 2,649 counties won by Donald Trump. While on tour, Clinton will also be selling leftover "I'm With Her" t-shirts and copies of her book, "What Happened?" "The last year and a half has been a wake up call," said Clinton. "Well maybe not the last year and a half. Maybe it was last week. But I figure, hey, it's never too late, right?" Many conservative pundits are skeptical about...

    It’s till the 1st of April in the United States and the Russian Foreign Ministry has made it one to remember. Anyone attempting to phone the Russian Foreign Ministry received a message that no one but the American liberal-left could take seriously. The message told callers: “You have reached the Russian embassy, your call is very important to us. To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponents, press one, to use the services of Russian hackers press two, to request election interference, press three and wait until the next election campaign. Please note that all calls...

    Dear Owner, I am David Wilson, Head Officer-in-Charge, Administrative Service Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agency in Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our investigation, I discovered an abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from United Kingdom which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport to our facility here in Atlanta, and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 130kg. The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or...

    A gentleman from Hawaii by the name of Gerald, called into Rush's show yesterday and gave a list of the many ways the Democrat Party is killing Americans. I added one or two and posted them in an easy to read list. The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. Psalm 14:1 The Democrat Party is so foolish, it has become the party of fools, and those who follow the doctrine of the foolish party are fools themselves. Thus, today is National Democrat...
  • Time for Trump to Resign- Russia is Real

    Everyone Just Knows | Me
    Friends, It is time for us to face some facts. The total lack of evidence notwithstanding, there is just too much smoke surrounding the allegations of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia. This is making it impossible for Trump to govern effectively. Moreover, Vice President Pence is equally tainted by his constant contacts, real or imagined, with Russia. Thus, Paul Ryan should assume the Presidench as soon as conveniently possible. I did not reach this conclusion easily. No, it took a bottle of Scotch and a trip to Colorado to smoke some legal weed to get me here. But here...

  • Google killed its April Fools' Day joke after it allegedly lost people their jobs

    Google has abruptly killed off one of its April Fools' Day "jokes" after it caused outrage online, with multiple people claiming that it lost them their jobs. The premise of the joke was simple. In Gmail, next to the standard "Reply" button, Google added a "Mic drop" button. Using it would reply to the email, archive it — and also add a GIF of a "Despicable Me" minion dropping a mic. "Email's great, but sometimes you just wanna hit the eject button," Google wrote in a tongue-and-cheek blog post explaining its purpose. "Like those heated threads at work, when everyone's...

    UNC head basketball coach Roy Williams received a phone call today from the NCAA informing him that his team would be cited for enrolling students in fake academic classes over a 15 year period, which included at least one national championship team. In response to this accusation, Coach Williams responded, "Our young scholars worked as hard in these bogus academic classes as any students in real classes with real professors. In fact, our student athletes worked harder to circumvent the academic rules real students in a brick and mortar classroom. We believe in hard work, and our athletes worked hard"....

  • Lefty Celebrities Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore Announce Joint Venture

    Newsbusters ^ | APRIL 1, 2015
    In the most surprising news of the year so far concerning liberal celebrities, the New York Times reported in its Wednesday editions that Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell have more than ideological synchronicity. They are now expecting their first child together. As befits the leftist agenda of the Times, reporter Amanda Portcullis, who interviewed Moore and O’Donnell for the story, presented the developments in a highly positive light. She quoted no one who criticized Moore’s anti-business, anti-conservative movies, nor did she allow anyone to state an opposing view to O’Donnell’s 9/11 “trutherism” and hostility to gun rights. The article revealed...

    'Taco Liberty Bell' (1996): Taco Bell Corp placed a full-page ad in seven major newspapers announcing it had 'bought the Liberty Bell' and was renaming it the 'Taco Liberty Bell' in-order to help pay-down the national debt. Predictably, angry (+ slightly naive and/or lacking a calendar) citizens melted the phones at the offices of the National Historic Park in Philadelphia where the bell is kept. Taco Bell executives let them stew for a few hours before revealing it was all an April Fools gag at noon.  President Clinton's quick-on-his-feet White House press secretary Mike McCurry responded when asked about the...
  • April Fool's Day is a Catholic Thing

    04/01/2015 5:16:02 AM PDT · by Alex Murphy · 19 replies
    Okay, so it isn't really Catholic thing per se, but the origin of April Fool's Day is actually found in the Church. A lot of people don't know this, so here's how the story goes. On February 24, 1582, Pope Gregory XIII issued the papal bull Inter Gravissimas which established the Gregorian calendar (which gets it's name from this pope) as the official calendar for the Christian world. With this pronouncement, the Julian calendar was replaced and the first day of the new year was moved to January 1. Those who continued to observe it on April 1, whether out...
