  • SSC Tuatara now world's fastest car at 316.11 mph (stock production car)

    SSC announced a customer-owned Tuatara set a new production-vehicle land-speed record of 316.11 mph. The run took place on Oct. 10 on a seven-mile stretch of State Route 160 in Nevada and required a two-way average with both runs within an hour of each other to account for wind and gradients; a public road; street tires; street fuel; and satellite tracking. The car was stock...with a four-point seating harness and no roll cage...the team overfilled the Cup 2 tires with nitrogen...the active rear wing was locked in top-speed mode so it couldn't retract or angle for braking if anything were...
  • Vaseline gets woke and creates a Black Lives Matter ad

    10/19/2020 9:38:33 AM PDT · by rktman · 47 replies ^ | 10/19/2020 | Andrea Wilburg
    Vaseline has come a long way from the oil fields. Like all modern companies, its management hires are almost certainly required to have a college degree. And unless that college degree comes from Hillsdale, another virtual certainty is that the college requirement means that Vaseline's management is steeped in leftism. We've certainly seen this pattern with corporations instantly embracing the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement. Leftists also believe ridiculous theories such as the dishonest 1619 Project and the incredibly racist theory called "Critical Race Theory." With those people in charge — and reporting to a Dutch-British company that has no...
  • Donald Trump: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Has ‘Great Line of Bulls**t’ with Green New Deal

    President Donald Trump mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal proposal on Friday. “She’s got a great line of bulls**t, that’s about it,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia. “She knows nothing about the environment.” He noted that the Green New Deal proposed trillions of dollars of spending to reduce greenhouse gases on the planet in an effort to stop global warming “This is the craziest thing, done by AOC plus three,” he said, mocking the group of freshman Democrat members of congress that rallied to Ocasio-Cortez with far-left ideas. “These are not great academics,”...

    In May 2019, an FBI bulletin mentioning QAnon warned that conspiracy theory-driven extremists have become a domestic terrorism threat and were “very likely” to commit violent crimes inspired by their fringe beliefs. QAnon already has been linked to acts of real-world violence, including the killing of the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family.
  • ‘The Most Flawed Person I Have Ever Met’: Trump’s Former Chief of Staff John Kelly Reportedly UNLOADED on President in Private

    A new report from CNN says former White House chief of staff John Kelly has unloaded on his former boss in very stark terms in private. Since leaving the Trump administration, Kelly has made a few public comments criticizing President Donald Trump and his conduct in office, though he’s been more muted than others who have spoken out about their time working for Trump. Jake Tapper reported Friday on a quote from Kelly about the president that he has apparently told people close to him: “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature...

    George w. bush doesn’t like Donald Trump. He doesn’t like how Trump is behaving as president. He clearly doesn’t like the division in the country Trump has fostered. He knows American democracy is under threat. He has tried to be reassuring, telling people that America has survived rough times before—a way of using insistent optimism to diplomatically acknowledge the rough time the nation is going through now.

    Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, said on Wednesday that he is working on a book documenting his experiences with the Justice Department just a month after the release of his first book, which painted a highly critical and inflammatory picture of the president. “There’s so much more to the story that hasn’t been told, tangentially, related to Donald Trump,” Cohen told Politico in an interview on Wednesday. “It is fair and accurate to state that President Trump has weaponized the Department of Justice against those he deems to be a threat thus making it into the Department of...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is stressing that the country’s politics has “moved away from the spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.” And the 2012 GOP presidential nominee warns that the "rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters" to launch "dangerous action” such as the recent kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Romney, the most vocal Republican critic of President Trump in Congress, took to Twitter on Tuesday to take aim at the president.
  • Juventus, USMNT star Weston McKennie: My country might not accept me due to skin color

    10/12/2020 5:35:02 PM PDT · by neverevergiveup · 36 replies
    USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie has said he represents a country that "possibly doesn't even accept me just for the color of my skin." McKennie paid tribute to George Floyd during a Bundesliga match for former club Schalke as he wore an armband with the words "Justice For George." Floyd, who was Black, died in police custody in Minnesota in May after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for more than seven minutes. The killing sparked Black Lives Matter protests in cities across the United States. "This year, at the beginning of the season, we played and the fans...

    Billionaire NBA team owner Mark Cuban clashed with Megyn Kelly during a Monday interview on her podcast over questions related to the NBA’s willingness to do business with China despite the country’s human rights abuses, telling her it is not “the only one” to engage in such violations. Kelly began with a reference to the 2019 controversy inspired by Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey, who wrote a message on Twitter in support of Hong Kong protesters. “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong,” Morey wrote. “There was some guy who sent out one tweet,” Kelly noted. “All hell broke...

    Agency Gives Utilities a Break, Reclassifies ‘Cooling Ponds’ as ‘Waste Treatment Systems’ Alice Fleming Guzick and her husband, Bill, have been living at their lake house on Lake Keowee in South Carolina since the coronavirus pandemic started. She likes to paddleboard and kayak there. Trump and Radical Republicans stripped environmental protections from lakes such as the one Guzick lives on when the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers repealed former President Barack Obama’s Clean Water Rule and replaced it. Environmentalists say the change removes lakes such as Lake Keowee from being protected under the landmark Clean Water Act, which...

    The NFL is set to celebrate the LGBTQ community’s “National Coming Out Day” during its Sunday Night Football broadcast this weekend. The campaign, labeled “It Takes All Of Us,” will feature a 30-second video starring openly gay or bisexual NFL players including Ryan O’Callaghan, Jeff Rohrer, R.K. Russell, and Wade Davis. The ad encourages gays to come out and be proud of their sexual proclivities, according to CNN. The video starts with the aforementioned players saying, “To all current players who are thinking of coming out, when you are ready, so are we.” The ad then segues to other players...

    Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, aka “Johnny Rotten,” has confirmed that he is “definitely” voting for President Donald Trump in America’s upcoming presidential election, railing against the establishment politicians who’ve been running the country. Lydon, who is English but became an American citizen in 2013, said he doesn’t care about Trump’s personality but rather a continued shake-up of the political system. “He’s an individual thinker, I’ll give him that for a start,” he said in an interview with BBC’s Newsday. “He’s not the most lovable fellow on God’s earth, but I cannot see the opposition as offering me anything by...

    If Americans want to see people trying to look intelligent while arguing, cable news already provides numerous showcases of Smart People Behaving Badly. At this point, 2020 seems like the awful Thanksgiving dinner-turned-shouting-match that just won’t stop. On top of a COVID lockdown-induced recession, our culture has become coarser and more vitriolic than ever. Riots and protests have broken out in dozens of cities as both political parties hurl invective at each other.So, what did NBC decide to return to the airwaves in the middle of this blazing-hot zeitgeist? A remake of an insult-filled show.It seems sadly ironic that the...

Griffin, who rose to infamy after posing with a replica of President Trump’s bloody, decapitated head in 2017, later added that she was “patiently waiting for trump’s coma to commence.”

    A few times in my career, I have genuinely feared for my life. In Arkansas, I posed as an ultimate fighter at a cage match and challenged anyone in the audience to take me on. When my fake ex-boyfriend volunteered, we engaged in some heavy petting, triggering a near riot. The crowd—including some recently paroled prisoners with swastika tattoos—erupted in homophobic slurs and started hurling metal chairs at us. Had I not ducked into a trapdoor and out an escape tunnel, I think the crowd would have beaten me senseless. Moments like that are frightening. Today, though, I’m truly terrified—for...

    Trump is a fount of conspiracy theories, disinformation, and childish fantasizing, and his White House is filled with bumbling sycophants who can't keep their stories straight. Trump desperately wants us to believe his rosy projections for a complete and imminent COVID recovery. But Americans, rightfully, don't think he or his White House can be trusted. The details of the Commander-in-Chief being laid low by a dreaded disease mere weeks before an election are crucial information in the public interest. The president and his deputies work for the people. They owe us the truth. Even if Trump's people weren't the Keystone...

    Co-host Joy Behar revealed one of her desires about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View.” Behar said, “I’m dreaming of the day when we all say ‘President Nancy Pelosi.’ I think that sounds really good. But the polls are showing that Biden is ahead in key swing states. It’s very encouraging in many ways, Pennsylvania, et cetera, but I’m still worried that they could steal this election. I know that the Russians are still involved.

    As Americans have begun to vote in the presidential election, one must make an important distinction in Donald Trump’s record in office. It’s entirely fair to call him nominally anti-abortion. It’s not credible to call him pro-life. And the distinction matters. As a young pro-life activist, I still remember the publication of Pope John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae, its words touched this Protestant’s heart, and when he rooted the pro-life principle in the “incomparable worth of the human person,” it crystalized not just my opposition to abortion but also an aspirational ethic of care for all persons – from conception...

    I woke up panicked early Saturday morning: I couldn't smell. I immediately sprung out of bed, terrified I had contracted Covid-19 from President Donald Trump and his supporters after sitting only 15 feet away from them at the debate in Cleveland last week, where I was a guest of former Vice President Joe Biden.
