    FReeper fave Blazing Saddles is airing tonight on Turner Classic Movies at 10:30 p.m. EST. This FR thread from 2015 posited that Blazing Saddles could not be made today due to political correctness.Fortunately in 1974 Mel Brooks, Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Slim Pickens, Alex Karras, et al, were still free to make this comedy classic.The showing of Blazing Saddles is part of TCM's 31 Days of Oscar A to Z which started Wednesday.TCM airs films unedited, so all the jokes should be heard/seen.

    White House 'We the People' Petitions ^ | Thursday, January 5, 2017 | Kristinn
    A white disabled man was seen on live video Tuesday, January 3, 2017, being tied up, beaten and tortured by a group of Black people in Chicago. The attackers, among other acts, forced the victim to drink water out of a toilet bowl and cursed President-elect Trump. It is imperative for President Obama, as a Chicago native and the nation's first Black president, to strongly speak out and denounce this attack and to take responsibility for the cesspool of hatred and violence his hometown has become during his presidency. Video and details of the attack can be seen at this...

    While driving away from the Trump rally at the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando Wednesday evening, I drove though miles of Black neighborhoods trying to find my way back to the RT 408 toll road.One thing that struck me after I drove for a half-hour in stop-and-go traffic in all--and I do mean all-Black neighborhoods finally ending up at the John Young Parkway was that there was not one 'Hillary Clinton for president' sign to be seen anywhere.One would never know a hard-fought presidential election was in its closing days by driving through those Orlando neighborhoods. There were not any...

    The Daily Beast ^ | Thursday, August 4, 2016 | Katie Zavadski
    Days before an ISIS sympathizer attacked a cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, he received a text from an undercover FBI agent. “Tear up Texas,” the agent messaged Elton Simpson days before he opened fire at the Draw Muhammad event, according to an affidavit (pdf) filed in federal court Thursday. “U know what happened in Paris,” Simpson responded. “So that goes without saying… No need to be direct.” That revelation comes amidst a national debate about the use of undercover officers and human sources in terrorism cases. Undercover sources are used in more than half of ISIS-related terror cases, according to...

    The Boston Herald ^ | Sunday, July 31, 2016 | Brian Dowling and Joe Dwinnell
    New Bedford leaders are livid at Hillary Clinton’s depiction of the Whaling City as a place where handicapped children were abandoned at home because the schools lacked accommodations for youngsters with special needs. “It’s not true,” former Mayor Jack Markey told the Herald yesterday. “I’m even a Democrat, but the truth is the truth. “We would take handicapped kids in a small van to schools that could take them,” said Markey, who served on a local board that helped disabled children before he was elected mayor in 1971. “I would have been aware of a child needing help to go...

    Donald Trump has asked why I did not speak at the Democratic convention. He said he would like to hear from me. Here is my answer to Donald Trump: Because without saying a thing, all the world, all America, felt my pain. I am a Gold Star mother. Whoever saw me felt me in their heart. Donald Trump said I had nothing to say. I do. My son Humayun Khan, an Army captain, died 12 years ago in Iraq. He loved America, where we moved when he was 2 years old. He had volunteered to help his country, signing up...

    Iceland media reports are linking Donald Trump's son Eric to a weekend full of debauchery in the country in 2014. Ragnar Þór Jónsson, an Icelandic entrepreneur, told Fréttatíminn, a Reykjavik-based newspaper, that Eric Trump rented an apartment from him in August of that year, had a Charlie Sheen-esque night out and then abruptly left when local media picked up on his presence out of fear his then-fiancee, now-wife would find out. "I later heard that they invited 15 Icelandic girls to go out with them for dinner and drinks at a restaurant and paid each one 15 thousand Icelandic krónur...

    "An attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans." -Donald Trump just now. Can I get an AMEN? Trump's forceful defense of our men & women in blue tonight at the GOP Convention is one of the top reasons I will unapologetically support him over lawless Hillary in November. How about you? If you are in the D.C. area tomorrow night, please meet me for #bluelightfriday at the White House at sundown! I'll be holding vigil for the fallen with my friend, former NYPD officer John Cardillo, and many other retired/active-duty LEOs and friends/families/supporters of LEOs. We're lighting...

    Fox News ^ | Friday, July 8, 2016 | Howard Kurtz
    Donald Trump, in a sharp shift in strategy, is now refusing to appear on many television outlets, and top advisers who want to limit his exposure are no longer notifying him of every interview request. According to sources familiar with the campaign, one faction is worried that the constant rounds of interviews entail too much risk of the candidate making mistakes or fanning minor controversies, even though his mastery at driving the media agenda helped power his Republican primary victory. A series of clashes over these and other tactical questions has caused Trump himself to openly question who is running...

    CBS12 gets answers for firearms dealers and gun store owners claiming social media giant Facebook is banning them as users. This week, two different gun store owners told CBS12 the same story: after the Orlando terror attack, they were personally suspended from Facebook and their business pages were suddenly unpublished. Andy Hallinan, the owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, Florida, first made headlines for turning his gun store into a "Muslim-free" zone. He told us that, this week, he experienced problems on Facebook. "I woke up this morning to my phone just lighting up. People couldn't access my Facebook...

    The self-proclaimed Islamic State broke through a line of Kurdish forces in Iraq and killed a U.S. service member Tuesday who were there to advise them, a U.S. defense official told the Daily Beast. U.S. advisers had arrived on Monday morning to assist the Kurdish forces, known as peshmerga, in the northern city of Mosul, checking on “their morale and defenses,” the official said. The U.S. forces were as many as 3 miles from the frontlines when the ISIS fighters attacked, the official said. ISIS fighters “appeared to penetrate the forward line” and began attacking the peshmerga. A U.S. service...
