    Separated Parents Are Failing Asylum Screenings Because They’re So Heartbroken Immigration lawyers say separated parents are too grief-stricken to focus on their cases. BROWNSVILLE, Texas Jodi Goodwin has spent the past month helping grief-stricken parents with their asylum cases. On most days, the Harlingen, Texas-based immigration lawyer drives to the Port Isabel Detention Center just outside of Brownsville to meet with clients who were separated from their children. But, she says, those mothers and fathers are too devastated to prepare for their court hearings. Instead, they replay the moment their kids were taken away by Border Patrol, worry about their...
  • OMEDIAN TRACEY ULLMAN: WOKE WILL EAT ITSELF

    Comedian Tracey Ullman: Woke Will Eat Itself (HotAir) Alternate title: A Typical Day on Twitter. The video is a few days old, but it’s so good as a palate cleanser that it simply can’t be missed. Comedian Tracey Ullman has enough standing as an entertainer and a cultural satirist to get away with this send-up of millennials and “wokeness” — I think, anyway. If she doesn’t, no one does, and it’s funny enough to test out the theory (Not Safe for Work language):
  • Pope Francis admits he is just making most of his theology up as he goes

    In an honest, impromptu homily delivered Monday, Pope Francis admitted he is just making most of his theology up as he goes, ignoring thousands of years of official Church doctrine in favor of “whatever pops into my head at the time.”Where past Popes have been careful in their attempts to stay in line with official Catholic teaching, Pope Francis confessed he doesn’t really know much official doctrine, stating that he’s more of a “shoot from the hip kind of guy” when it comes to weighty topics of morality, salvation, God, and eternity.“People ask me questions, and I’m not always sure...

    Comedians are becoming increasingly reluctant to perform on college campuses due to a sensitive culture of political correctness, and college bookers don't seem to mind. According to VICE News report published last week, several successful comedians, including Judy Gold, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock, now avoid going to college campuses because their jokes can be deemed offensive. “Why is it that everyone has to adjust to everyone else? Don’t hire me if you don’t want to hear what I have to say,” Gold told the publication. When asked to explain how she would react if her jokes offended an audience...
  • TV's imported comedians often stumble while trying to 'fix' America (Samantha Bee, etc.)

    In theory, the foreign-born comedians on America's late-night comedy and satire shows are supposed to provide a fresh, outsider’s perspective on the news in their adopted homeland. But in practice, these imported jokesters often seem to pander to their liberal audiences -- and that typically means unleashing vile attacks on the Trump administration. These comedians include Canadian-born Samantha Bee, British-born John Oliver and James Corden, and South African-born Trevor Noah. Out to 'fix' America Bee, 48, who acquired U.S. citizenship in 2014, is the latest example of comedians going too far in a bid to score cheap political points. She...

    Celebrities have opinions they like to share. Sometimes, what they have to say comes and goes without a blink, and other times it dominates a news cycle. In most cases, their thoughts are insignificant and don’t matter. President Trump is attacked on a regular basis by alleged comedians on late night talk shows. Jimmy Kimmel is one of Trump’s most prominent attackers. But has Kimmel become bored with his verbal assaults? Recently, Deadline interviewed Kimmel. He was asked if there was a “barrel full of barbs” for Trump in his upcoming ABC standup routine show. He surprisingly said he only...

    Jerry Seinfeld isn’t interested in Donald Trump jokes. The comedian behind the legendary Seinfeld sitcom sat down with David Letterman for an upcoming episode of the Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Perhaps hopefully, Letterman wondered, “Do you do Trump stuff when you go out?” Seinfeld shut down this topic by humorously changing the subject: “No, it doesn’t interest me. I do a lot of raisin stuff.” He joked: I just think that it’s interesting that after 80 years, Sun-Maid finally went, 'Hey, why don’t we put some chocolate on it?' Imagine not thinking of that for 80...

    Saturday Night Live hasn’t been running for my entire life, but sometimes it feels that way. When the show debuted I was still in high school, as hard as that is to believe today. I’ll definitely confess to being a fan of SNL early on, particularly when Belushi was still with them, though I sort of lost track of the show in the 80s and 90s. But after all these years, is the seemingly eternal Saturday night offering from NBC finally on its last legs?Christian Toto seems to think it’s possible. Not for a lack of advertising revenue or even...

    An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, 'Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?' The bar immediately falls absolutely silent… In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, 'Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, Given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer...

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the deplorable world, these donkeys hee-hawing, patting each other on the back and slapping their knees with their flimsy paper programmes are what’s being passed off as the fourth Estate! While the fake stars of the mainstream media were all making fools of themselves laughing themselves to hiccup stage at smears pretending to be jokes during Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, guess what their conspicuously absent ’Guest of Honor’ was doing? Putting the run to the Feds in Public Education. That’s what! “The Trump Administration announced today that it will began taking steps to...

    Standup comic Hannibal Buress, whose 2014 remark about sexual-assault accusations against Bill Cosby went viral, is getting another serious surge of attention. The path to Cosby’s conviction on Thursday on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home arguably started 3 1/2 years earlier in a Philadelphia comedy club, where Buress during his standup act mocked Cosby’s smug preachiness and called him a rapist. “I’ve done this bit on stage, and people think I’m making it up,” Burress said. “Bill Cosby has a lot of rape allegations. … When you leave here, Google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’”...

    One of the greatest comic minds of the twentieth century, Mel Brooks, said late last year that "stupid political correctness" would be "the death of comedy." "It's not good for comedy," Brooks said in September 2017.  "Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks.  Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behavior." It's safe to say Brooks speaks from a podium of unparalleled wisdom on this matter.  His movie Blazing Saddles remains one of the least politically correct movies Hollywood has ever made.  It's also probably the funniest.  Brooks has said that that "political correctness...

As he moved to take a drink of water to appear like a real human who thirsts, the faux human-eye lens fell out of his eye socket and the awful, piercing alien eyeball underneath quickly focused on the Senator questioning...

  • I just heard that there might be "Russian Collusion" between Trump and the Russians

    I think Trump has done a splendid job so far as president of the United States. However, I heard just today that there is a possibility that there might be some collusion (col-u-son) between Trump and the Russians. Apparently the Russians wanted Donald Trump to be president just as much as we did and so they did some collusion type things to make sure that Trump won the election. I'm not quite sure what kind of things they were but it could be that Russians were sent over here during the election to dance outside of Trump tower and hold...
