    Why did Juan Williams have an earpiece in his right ear during Monday's show? Was he being fed his opinions or is he hard of hearing?

    FOX broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman don’t appear to be big fans of military pregame flyovers at NFL games. In a video obtained by Defector media, Buck and Aikman, who apparently didn’t know they were being recorded, could be heard on a hot mic before the start of Sunday’s Packers-Bucs game mocking the pregame flyover as a waste of money by the government. TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover. JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work! AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll...

    Is the average American voter really thinking about all the ways to get back at voters who voted for President Trump? Adrian Vermeule @Vermeullarmine · Oct 18 If any voters in Pennsylvania are reading this: do you really want to elect these people? Quote Tweet Robert Reich @RBReich · Oct 17 When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.

    American Thinker ^ | 20 Oct, 2020 | Christopher Chantrill
    It’s easy, after the notorious censorship of the New York Post’s investigative piece on Joe Biden’s corruption, to blame Big Tech for being evil. But I think the problem is deeper than that. I think the problem is what you might call the Lina Lamont Problem: the Tech Lords are not as smart as they think they are. You remember Lina Lamont in Singin’ in the Rain and her Jaysey accent: “What d’yer think I yam? Dumb or Some’pn?” Let’s get real about the Pichais, the @jacks, the Zucks of the world. They are super-duper at building tech empires. But...

    Alan Howell Parrot claims that both George W. Bush and Barack Obama were fully aware that bin Laden and more than 100 of his top Al Qaeda fighters were sheltering in Iran, along with their families. And he’s now released documents to support his claim Alan Howell Parrot is an unusual character with a flowing gray beard and wizard’s turban who looks like he popped out of a movie. Born in Maine, he followed his fascination with falcons to the Middle East, serving as Chief Falconer to the Shah of Iran and organizing falconry hunts for the royal families of...

    It’s just the flu, bro. We are in a holding pattern it seems. Nobody is relaxing Coronavirus rules right now. So we wait. Some say we only need to wait until the election. Others might say we have to wait until after the virus-supporting winter weather is over in March. Still others might say we should wait until the Spring of 2022 to relax the rules. I think there are some who will do everything they can in order to make the mask mandate and lockdown permanent. They will use two reasons to justify it even AFTER nobody has Coronavirus...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - As of Monday, more than 635,000 absentee ballots have been cast in North Carolina. State data shows about 98 percent of them have been accepted, but that still leaves thousands of others with issues. Now voters have a chance to fix them. **SNIP** The state is now directing county boards of election to notify voters about problems with their ballots so they can correct them. “We’re going to push to get everything out as fast as we can. We’ve got an entire team working on it,” said Wake County Director of Elections Gary Sims. He said...

    PHILADELPHIA, PA—Biden's town hall last night was filled with undecided voters. The first one the moderator called on was a hard-working Irish-American immigrant named Henry O'Clintonhan. "Thank ye for takin' me question," O'Clintonhan said, adjusting his large red beard and giant green hat. "Me question is: why is Donald Trump such a bad man, and how-are-ya such a great one, my lad?" It seemed like a slam-dunk for Biden, but he was flustered, shouting one of his silly gaffes that "the bad woman is here" and "she's trying to take me out again, please send help." After a brief intermission,...

    New Yorkers are getting frustrated by extremely noisy vehicles with modified exhaust pipes that terrorize residents, with many slamming the NYPD's laissez faire response. The obnoxious sound of revving car engines and the distinct gunshot-like 'pops' of vehicles without mufflers gradually inundated the city's five boroughs this summer - and residents have had enough. 'Cars and motorcycles are completely out of control now that the cops are nowhere to be seen and there's no traffic in Brooklyn,' one person vented on social media in June. 'It's really dangerous and scary.'

    Juneteenth has officially become a state holiday after lawmakers unanimously approved legislation during the Virginia General Assembly special session. Juneteenth marks the day news of the Emancipation Proclamation reached Texas, which was the last state to abolish slavery. The companion bills were introduced by Sen. Mamie Locke, D-Hampton, and Del. Lamont Bagby, D-Richmond. Gov. Ralph Northam signed the legislation on Oct. 13.

    Documents appear to show Hunter Biden's signature on a receipt for $85 at a Delaware computer shop where he dropped off laptops that included details of his international business deals. Last week a New York Post report claimed that Hunter Biden’s laptop was abandoned at the computer shop in April 2019 for months and was found to contain e-mails that purportedly implicate Joe Biden in his son's international business dealings during his time as Vice President. The laptop's hard drive was later obtained by the FBI and Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who shared its contents with the Post. A...

    Fusion power is the technology that is 30 years away, and always will be, according to skeptics, at least. Despite its difficult transition into a reliable power source, the nuclear reactions that power the sun have a wide variety of uses in other fields. The concept fusion drive, called a direct fusion drive (or DFD), is in development at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). Though still under development, the engine itself exploits many of the advantages of aneutronic fusion, most notably an extremely high power-to-weight ratio. The fuel for a DFD drive can vary slightly in mass and contains...

    In 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that we’d be having 15-hour workweeks by the end of the century. But by the time it was 2013, it was clear that the great economist had gotten something wrong.Welcome to the era of bullshit jobs, as anthropologist David Graeber coined it. Since the 1930s, whole new industries have sprung up, which don’t necessarily add much value to our lives. Graeber would probably call most jobs in software development bullshit.I don’t share Graeber’s opinion, especially when it comes to software. But he does touch an interesting point: as more and more processes are automated,...
  • Attorney for group of ex-players fires back at Iowa Hawkeyes

    The attorney representing eight Black former Iowa football players who allege racial discrimination during their time with the Hawkeyes said Monday night that the university's rejection of their demands, which included a payment of $20 million, is not the end of the matter. Civil rights attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons of Tulsa, Oklahoma, had stated the players' demands in a 21-page letter to university officials dated Oct. 5. In addition to $20 million, the players called for the firings of head football coach Kirk Ferentz, offensive line coach Brian Ferentz and athletic director Gary Barta.

    In wake of the New York Post reporting a “cash-for-influence” scheme between the Bidens and foreign entities, the Debate Commission has dropped the “foreign policy” focus of the upcoming presidential debate. Instead, the upcoming debate will simply mirror the topics of the first debate. “The third presidential debate – set to take place on Thursday – was originally supposed to center on foreign policy,” quipped the National Pulse. “But following the release of the Hunter Biden e-mails/laptop details in the New York Post, the wildly partisan Presidential Debate Commission announced that would no longer be the case, the effect being...
