    In the House’s first congressional hearing on gun violence prevention in almost a decade, tensions flared between the father of a Parkland high school shooting victim and a Florida lawmaker. During the meeting, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said illegal immigration, not guns, is a major factor behind acts of public violence that have plagued the nation over the past two decades. (snip) ...Oliver interrupted him at least two more times. Gaetz then petitioned Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., to remove Oliver from the gallery.

    Coca-Cola is abandoning it’s eleven-year run of airing an ad during the Super Bowl this year, opting instead to run a commercial promoting “unity” as “our nation feels divided” just before the National Anthem. At up to $5.3 million per sixty-second spot, the soda giant has pulled out of airing an ad during the most expensive TV time of the year, but is not snubbing the game entirely, according to Variety. Coke-Cola will run an ad focusing on “diversity” in the half hour before kickoff. According to a statement, Coke celebrated its history of “unity and positivity.” “We have a...

    As soon as the 2018 election concluded, the 2020 cycle began. It never ends. It’s a perpetual war. And as we conclude 2018, the Democratic clown car is getting ready for its magical mystery tour across the country. It’ll be a race of who can out-left wing the other, who can call to officially abolish ICE first, who can raise taxes more, who can entangle business in the most in regulations, and who can be the most anti-Trump candidate. It’s going to be entertaining—annoying but entertaining. The first slate of candidates is reportedly Sens. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY), Kamala Harris (D-CA),...

  • 45 Democrats jostling to challenge Trump in 2020 (maybe minus one because she needs to be locked up)

    An unprecedented 45 Democrats are jockeying for the party's nomination to challenge President Trump in 2020 — shattering the record for the number of candidates aspiring to be commander in chief. A review of potential contenders by the Washington Examiner reveals that up to 45 candidates could mount a serious bid to become leader of the free world. While many will undoubtedly decide against formally entering the race, most Democratic strategists expect at least two dozen to do so. Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, co-chairman of the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, said recently that the 2020 presidential contest...

    The Senate testimony of Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett M.

    Caitlyn Jenner has said time and time again that she's "just friends" with blonde bombshell Sophia Hutchins. But now, it's being reported that they're getting married! After their close friendship was described as a "mother and daughter" relationship, it's now said they've been dating in recent weeks. And things are getting serious very quickly - despite their 47-year age gap. If Caitlyn, 68, married 21-year-old transgender student Sophia, it would be her fourth marriage.

    P.T. Barnum always has been regarded as a great entrepreneur and show business pioneer who saw things no one else did, perhaps realizing the business was just one big circus. The new musical The Greatest Showman avoids the pitfalls of typical biopics to become more of a fantasia of song and dance, a joyous exercise in pure entertainment that is made for the holiday crowd. If it doesn’t get swallowed up by other family fare like another Jumanji, another Star Wars, another Pixar toon and even Fox’s own Ferdinand, audiences will discover than true rarity: an original movie musical. Although...

    Just returned from Circo Hermano Vasquez. Ringling Brothers was run out of business for using animals in its circus. But Circo Vazquez lives because it handles animals in a 3rd world cultural tradition that the animals understand ... until PETA hears this. In the middle of the show the midget (little people play a special role in Mexican humor) came out with a Donald Trump wig and was a live Meme (just a couple blocks up the street from meme guru Laz). The audience roared with laughter. The clowns and MC did their typical humor. Immediately after Trump left the...

The circus gave the final performance of "The Greatest Show on Earth" to a sold-out crowd at Nassau Coliseum, showing off its death-defying stunts and exotic animals for the last time after 146 years.

    As judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals weigh the legality of President Trump’s immigration executive order, a Republican push to split up the controversial court -- and shrink its clout -- is gaining steam on Capitol Hill. Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona introduced legislation last month to carve six states out of the San Francisco-based court circuit and create a brand new 12th Circuit. They argue that the 9th is too big, too liberal and too slow resolving cases. If they succeed, only California, Oregon, Hawaii and two island districts would remain in the...
