He announced that he would be giving away the internet, the earthly CROWN JEWEL of worldwide freedom. And knowing who he is, he will give it to people who believe in 'hate speech' and anything that censors meaningful opposition to his perverse agenda. Let's face facts. We are on the verge of losing the internet on September 30 -- this year. The only people to save us are the very republicans we criticize the most. We must eat humble pie...

Albert Breer of MMQB became the latest national reporter to weigh in on Kaepernick Thursday morning. “Colin Kaepernick’s injury history, combined with the heavy injury guarantees in his contract, would be a motivator to put him on ice for the year if the team isn’t sold he’ll rebound in Chip Kelly’s offense,” Breer wrote. “The Redskins pulled something similar last year—they knew Robert Griffin...

    The 2009 film "The Invention of Lying" is set in a world where everyone tells the absolute truth. One day, the protagonist accidentally discovers that you can tell people something that's palpably false and, no matter how outrageous or absurd, they'll believe you, because they can't comprehend the idea of lying. To test his new insight, he has a conversation with a couple of his buddies in a bar, with hilarious results. Protagonist (who's clearly Caucasian): "I'm black." First friend: "Great, I always wanted a black friend." Protagonist: "I'm an Eskimo." Second friend: "I didn't know they had those, black...

Whilst conducting research, the six had to live with limited resources, wear a space-suit when outside the dome, and work to avoid personal conflicts. They each had a small sleeping cot and a desk inside their rooms. Provisions included powdered cheese and canned tuna.

    Thanks to DCLeaks.com and the work of journalist Kevin Jones the truth is finally out there. George Soros, a U.S. billionaire and one of the richest people in the world, has been secretly pumping funds into the push to legalise abortion in Ireland. In a private memo, clearly never intended to be seen by the Irish people, Soros’ foundation takes aim at Irish laws protecting unborn babies, and commits to funding three groups who will work ‘collectively’ to legalise abortion – Amnesty Ireland, the Abortion Rights Campaign, and the IFPA. The revelations are hugely embarrassing for abortion campaigners. Under pressure...

And he did, mowing letter by letter, for about two hours, until he had the biggest Trump sign around. “I just made the first one and made the other ones match it,” Eddy said. The...

The ad, titled "Keep Your Word," features footage of Trump during the Republican primary in which he suggested he'd drop out if he saw his poll numbers decline. The 30-second spot is marked for a limited run on broadcast networks in suburban Florida, Virginia, Ohio and Michigan, according to Regina Thomson, a Colorado Republican activist and leader of Free the Delegates, the organization that failed...

However, as the Afghan rebels began to acquire Stinger missiles from the United States, Su-25s began to suffer losses and the Soviet pilots were forced to fly higher to avoid the man-portable surface-to-air missiles. In all, some fifteen Su-25s were shot down in Afghanistan before the Soviet withdrawal.... While it’s fun to admire high-performing fighters like the MiG-29 or F-22 Raptor, the unglamorous Su-25 has so far had a greater impact on a wide range of conflicts. We can draw a few lessons from its recent combat record.

    The University of Missouri (MU) is renaming its “Unisex” restrooms on campus in response to complaints that the current label isn’t inclusive. Henceforth, restrooms intended for use by both men and women will simply be labeled “toilet.” The change is apparently meant to accommodate student complaints that the “unisex” label, intended to encompass everybody, is actually exclusionary and hurtful. “Unisex is just such an uncomfortable and outdated word,” MU student Sterling Waldman told the Columbia Missourian.
