  • No, Ted Cruz Doesn’t Want Federal Regulation of Home Schooling

    The Resurgent ^ | February 11, 2016 | Brian Sikma
    Contrary to what some bloggers (many of whom support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign) and the Internet rumor mill have been saying, Sen. Ted Cruz does not support federal regulation of home schooling.The source of the myth is Cruz’s co-sponsorship of S.306, a bill introduced during this session of Congress by Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Some form of the bill has been introduced since 2000, but the measure has never been controversial until presidential campaign politics intervened. What the measure does is expand who can use Coverdell education savings accounts by clarifying that for the purpose of Coverdell expenses only, the...

    Reuters ^ | February 10th, 2016 | By Michelle Nichols
    Several United Nations Security Council members pressed Russia on Wednesday to stop bombing around Syria's Aleppo in support of a Syrian military offensive and allow humanitarian access ahead of a crucial meeting of major powers in Germany on the conflict. The 15-member Security Council met behind closed doors to discuss the situation after the U.N. warned that hundreds of thousands of civilians could be cut off from food if Syrian government forces encircle rebel-held parts of Aleppo. "Russia's air strikes have been a direct cause of this crisis around Aleppo," New Zealand's U.N. Ambassador Gerard van Bohemen told reporters after...

    his one went by so fast that most of us seem to have missed it. This past weekend’s Saturday Night Live had not one but two Jewish jokes. One was moderately funny, notable mainly for the fact that it came from the mouth of Senator Bernie Sanders, during a back-and-forth with his doppelganger Larry David. The other, delivered by Weekend Update fake news co-anchor Michael Che, was far more pointed and may just have crossed a line. Here’s Che’s bit: “On his first visit to a U.S. mosque, President Obama called on U.S. television producers to create characters that are...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | February 7, 2016 | Daniel Halper
    Saturday Night Live did not just take aim at Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The NBC comedy show also mocked his daughter, Catherine. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) In last night's cold open skit last night, an actor playing Cruz said, "First, my family, I would be nothing without the love and support of my incredible family like my daughter Catherine here." "Come here, sweetie," says the fake Cruz. "How about a hug for daddy?" "No," says the actress, clearly much older than the real life Catherine Cruz. "Come on, now, give daddy a hug for the camera?" "No." "Come here, sweetie. How about...

    There are few movies as quotable as the 1980 disaster-movie parody Airplane! — and of the movie's many memorable gags, arguably the most enduring is the moment when reluctant pilot Ted Striker (Robert Hays) tells Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen), “Surely you can’t be serious,” and Rumack replies, “I am serious — and don’t call me Shirley.” As part of our weeklong 100 Jokes That Shaped Comedy series, we dug into the origins and execution of that exchange — as well as the overall comedic mechanics of Airplane! — with the trio who wrote and directed the film, Jim Abrahams, David...

    Baskets Series Premiere Recap: Bakersfield Blues By Andrew Lapin Feel that dry heat in the air? Alt comedians are having a moment with Bakersfield, California. Situated midway between L.A. and the Bay Area, the inland desert region is the setting for Rick Alverson's Entertainment, a horrifying feature that follows an obnoxious comic as he performs his gimmicky stand-up act to indifferent crowds. (I liked it, but it isn't an easy sit.) Now the new FX series Baskets charts a similar character — a pretentious aspiring clown who takes a job entertaining indifferent crowds at the local rodeo. Not since Five...

    Frank Skinner once admitted that new girlfriends were always "subjected to the Laurel and Hardy test", when he would play a video of the Laurel and Hardy dance sequence from Way Out West. "If she didn't laugh, I instantly wrote her off as a future companion," said Skinner, conceding that this wasn't exactly rational behaviour. Perhaps we can all be divided by that Laurel and Hardy test. Those who love the Way Out West dance, which captures perfectly the charm and on-screen chemistry of the comedy duo, will already have been delighted by the news that the BBC1 is...

    Liberals must be so disappointed with the much-hyped "gun control episode" of South Park. There was a big build up that the show’s season 19 finale, “PC Principal Final Justice,” would see every South Park citizen arm themselves and lead to an explosive conclusion, but that never happened, much to their chagrin. In anticipation of the episode, Crissy Milazzo from Complex.com noted, “Interestingly enough, the Southpark creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone aren't really pro-gun control… Maybe ten or so mass shootings have changed their minds?” And Natasha Noman on Mic said of a preview clip, “The show's writers have...

    All in the Family revolved around the life of a working class bigot named Archie Bunker and his family. The show set new broadcast standards by tackling issues previously considered unsuitable for U.S. network television comedy, such as racism, homosexuality, women's liberation, rape, miscarriage, abortion, breast cancer, and the Vietnam War. Throughout the 70's the series became one of television's most influential comic programs, as it interlaced radical issues of the day with the live audience sitcom format. In this episode, Its Thanksgiving and Archie decides its time to make sure that his future grandson is not raised an Atheist....

    "Hear us out a minute: What if Bernie Sanderss whole Presidential campaign is just fodder for a new season of Larry Davids beloved HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm? A new viral video created by editor Dominick Nero provides plenty of evidence for that interpretation. Using footage from the recent Democratic Party debate, Nero re-edited Sanders exchanges into vintage David freak-outs, underscored by the shows famous theme song, Frolic, by Luciano Michelini. Even the reaction shots are classic Curb; Hilary Clinton comes across like the Jeff to Sanders David, while gangly Martin OMalley is the resident Marty Funkhouser."

Kimmel's guy ticked off parts of the plan liberal-friendly items like no taxes for low-income workers, and conservative red meat like killing off the death tax and received a chorus of...

Hes just like all Democrats who hate FoxNews and bash it daily. Roger Ailes is a Ronald Reagan movement conservative. Trump is not. FoxNews is the only mainstream news organization that doesnt follow the lead of The New York Times. Trumps war on FoxNews makes me distrust him even more.

While other 2016 Republican candidates are out giving big speeches and attaching themselves to causes and making trips to Europe, Cruz has stayed relatively quiet, which is strange given that his animating purpose up to this point has been to loudly remind you that Ted Cruz exists. The biggest headlines Cruz has earned for himself lately were for a dumb joke he told about Joe Biden just after the vice presidents son died (Cruz quickly apologized). Thats not to say he hasnt been busy, though. Despite middling poll...

Being shot to superstardom often results in an instantaneous social media vetting, something Noah, Stewart, and Comedy Central were apparently unaware of. It’s fairly obvious no one in charge vetted Noah’s Twitter feed or they just didn’t care that it is loaded with jokes aimed at gays, Asians, the overweight, and Jews. This revelation is especially interesting after learning that Noah has already trashed America as racist. The hypocrisy of Jon Stewart is just...

After introducing Noah as the show's newest contributor at the time, Stewart noted: "And I know that you flew in, I guess, yesterday from South Africa." Noah replied: "Yeah, I just flew in and boy are my arms tired....No,...

But is he funny? No. Not even close. Just try watching and reading the highlights in some...
