  • American Airlines insists farty passenger wasn’t cause of emergency...Huh?

    American Airlines faced a big stink aboard one of its flights – but the airline insisted Monday that claims of a gassy passenger are a bunch of hot air. The Sunday afternoon flight from Charlotte, NC, landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, where airport officials initially said a passenger “passed gas,” WNCN reported. The station reported Sunday that the passengers were removed after experiencing nausea and headaches from the noxious fumes. But airline and airport officials blew off reports of severe flatulence Monday, telling The Post that the plane was not evacuated during a “medical call” after a mechanical issue aboard....
  • In the Trump era, Obama nostalgia is a booming industry (Barf Alert!)

    Pat Cunnane spent six years in the White House helping to promote Barack Obama’s message. From the outside, he still does: On Tuesday, Cunnane became the latest Obama alumnus to land a contract for a book on his experiences. While much of the world obsesses about the more impetuous musings of President Trump — or perhaps in reaction to that obsession — a new market for Obama nostalgia is manifest in the growing number of books, podcasts and TV and film treatments by or involving young veterans from the Obama stable.

    Daily Mail ^ | 06/05/17 | Daniel Bates
    Hillary Clinton has been reading daily devotionals since losing the election which teach her about 'being strong in the midst of unpredictability', her pastor has revealed. The Rev Bill Shillady said that the former Democratic Presidential candidate's prayers have been about 'encouragement' as she grapples with her shock defeat to Donald Trump. He said that Clinton has been finding 'strength and hope' in her Methodist faith as she tries to understand what went wrong. Clinton has only touched briefly on the personal impact her defeat has had on her making Rev Shillady's disclosure a significant insight into her state of...

    President Donald Trump has fulfilled a key campaign pledge, announcing that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. The Paris Agreement, which committed the U.S. to drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, was a truly bad deal—bad for American taxpayers, American energy companies, and every single American who depends on affordable, reliable energy. It was also bad for the countries that remain in the agreement. Here are four reasons Trump was right to withdraw.
  • Greg Gianforte wins Montana special election a day after being charged with assault

    Just 24 hours after being charged with assault for allegedly body-slamming a reporter in his Bozeman campaign office, Republican Greg Gianforte on Thursday defeated Democratic opponent Rob Quist to win the special election for the U.S. House seat in Montana. The race was thrust into the national spotlight in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night after Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs described being "body-slammed" by the GOP candidate, and a Fox News crew who witnessed the incident said the former technology and software executive "grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him." "I'm sick...
  • In Montana, cowboy Democrat looks for anti-Trump election win (Gag alert!)

    Can a guitar-strumming cowboy poet strike the first blow at the polls against President Donald Trump? Democrat Rob Quist reckons he can do just that, in Thursday's closely-watched special congressional election in Montana. Quist croons at campaign rallies and writes poems for supporters. And as a first-time candidate for public office, the 69-year-old is running an unexpectedly tight race against a Republican businessman in Big Sky country. The lead once enjoyed by Republican contender Greg Gianforte "has diminished in polling so much that it's miniscule," Jeremy Johnson, an associate professor of political science at Carroll College in the state capital...

    Throughout the 2016 Republican primary, Donald Trump’s opponents and most mainstream media were certain he would self-destruct. After he won the nomination, they were nonetheless certain his campaign would implode, and that Hillary Clinton would win the general election in a landslide. I was one of the dissenters who recognized early on, and explained in great detail throughout 2016, that Trump was probably going to be the 45th president of the United States. Since his inauguration it has grown increasingly apparent that, rather than having learned some kind of lesson, Trump’s erstwhile opposition remains as closed-minded and overconfident as ever....
  • Anthony Weiner pleading guilty to obscenity charge, report says (Putz alert!)

    Anthony Weiner is expected to plead guilty Friday to charges he sexted with a minor last year, according to a report. The scandal-scarred former congressman will cop to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor as part of a plea agreement with the US Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, The New York Times reported. Feds have been investigating claims that Weiner, then 51, sent a 15-year-old North Carolina girl inappropriate messages starting in January 2016. The charge carries a potential sentence of 0 to 10 years in prison. A likely result of his plea is that Weiner will...

    He found out like most people. Ousted FBI Director James Comey first learned that he was fired from watching the news — which was playing on television screens during a meeting he was having with agents in Los Angeles, a report says. The 56-year-old had been in the middle of speaking to the bureau employees when the breaking news alert came flashing across the TVs, according to ABC News. An FBI official who was in attendance told Los Angeles Times reporter James Queally that despite the circumstances, Comey “kept on talking.” “He was caught flat-footed,” the official said.

  • POTUS flushes a big carp from the swamp!

    Just look at the democrats, media and RINOS screwing themselves into the ground over Comey. What's the problem? Stumblebum Comey told the American people all the laws violated by Hillary and her private server and then said never mind! What's up with liberals? They wanted Comey's head on a stick when he was reopening the email investigation of Hillary and now they defend him after Trump fires him? Maybe it's that liberals don't really give a rat's rear end about Comey. Just maybe they are after Trump no matter what he does. (Most of us know the answer to that...

    The sex secrets of the young Barack Obama have been revealed in an authoritative new biography of the ex-president. Obama slept with his girlfriend Genevieve Cook on their first date, before she wrote him a poem about their 'f***ing' and called their sex 'passionate', the book about the former president reveals. They also did cocaine together - and after they split she slept with his best friend. Obama also considered a gay relationship while at college, twice proposed to another white girlfriend, and cheated on Michelle with his ex during the first year of their relationship. His past is revealed...
  • Comey says he feels ‘mildly nauseous’ that FBI may have influenced the election

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton puts the blame on her election loss to President Donald Trump on two factors — the hacks of her campaign manager’s emails, and the announcement of a reopening of an investigation into her email server just before the election. And the man responsible for the latter says he’s at least a little bit upset by that. ‘It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election.’ FBI Director James Comey Comey said that based on the metadata from a computer seized from former Rep. Anthony Weiner, there...
  • Portland rose parade canceled after ‘antifascists’ threaten GOP marchers

    For 10 years, the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association has kicked off the city of Portland’s annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade meant to attract crowds to its diverse neighborhood. Set to march in the parade’s 67th spot this year was the Multnomah County Republican Party, a fact that so outraged two self-described antifascist groups in the deep blue Oregon city that they pledged to protest and disrupt the April 29 event. Then came an anonymous and ominous email, according to parade organizers, that instructed them to cancel the GOP group’s registration — or else. “You have seen...

    On April 15, a pro-Trump, pro-free-speech rally at University of California, Berkeley, descended into violent mayhem after radical far-leftists — members of the organization Antifa — began to attack the peacefully assembled crowd. Antifa, which stands for “anti-fascist action,” is a network of loosely affiliated far-left anarchist and communist groups that orchestrate violent protests and attacks on populists, conservatives, and anyone else its members deem to be “fascists” or “Nazis.” “Anyone who tries to hold any sort of right-wing event literally gets beat up by militant communists in the street.” Antifa was formed originally in Germany in the 1980s, its...

  • Here’s how much Gov. Jerry Brown wants to raise the gas tax to fix crumbling roads (GAG!)

    AP ^ | 03/29/2017 | AP Staff
    California’s governor and legislative leaders on Wednesday proposed raising $52 billion to fix the state’s roads through a big gasoline tax increase, higher car registration fees and a charge on emission-free vehicles. The 10-year plan would boost gasoline excise taxes for the first time in more than two decades, raising them 12 cents per gallon — a 43 percent increase. The tax would rise automatically with inflation. For the first time, owners of zero emission vehicles would pay a $100 annual fee because they use public roads but don’t pay gasoline taxes that fund highway maintenance. The plan also includes...

    Three California Democrats have a warning for contractors who sign up for President Donald Trump’s border-wall construction project between the U.S. and Mexico: Build it, and we will divest from your company. In the latest act of resistance against the Trump administration, the state lawmakers have introduced a bill that would force the state to drop its pension investments in any companies involved in the project. “This is a wall of shame and we don’t want any part of it,” Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, said in a statement. “Immigrant stories are the history of America and this is a...
  • Colin Kaepernick will reportedly stand for national anthem next season

    Colin Kaepernick hired new agents, which was reported this week. The agents told teams Kaepernick would be opting out of his San Francisco 49ers contract to become a free agent, news that broke Wednesday. On Thursday, ESPN reported that Kaepernick would stand for the national anthem in 2017. All of these things are related, of course. Kaepernick will have a tough enough time finding the right fit in free agency, given his inconsistency on the field over the past few years. Kaepernick’s national-anthem protest of last season likely wouldn’t have been a positive for most NFL owners. So Kaepernick –...

    The Hill ^ | 02/222017 | Ben Kamisar and Owen Eagan
    As Democrats head to Atlanta this weekend to vote on their party’s next chair, the race to lead the Democratic National Committee chair is coming down to its two leading candidates. Rep. Keith Ellison (Minn.) has the edge over former Labor secretary Tom Perez in The Hill’s new survey of DNC members. But while both men claim they are close to securing commitments from the majority of the 447 voting members, neither candidate is assured victory.
