    The crack discovered Tuesday in a steel beam that supports the roof garden of the new, $2.2 billion Transbay Transit Center — forcing the terminal’s abrupt closure just as rush-hour was getting going — is the latest headache for the 2 1/2 block long transit hub.

      The latest left wing media darling is Alexandra Ocasio Cortez. She defeated incumbent Joe Crowley in the democrat primary by approximately 16,000 to 12,000, which, given that each House district represents about 700,00 people, is what you might call a very low turnout. Let's take a look at the new media sweetie. Her platform reads like this: a call for the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE). Ocasio-Cortez championed a single-payer, Medicare-for-All health-care system, declared that housing is a right, and called for sweeping criminal-justice reform. And she identified as a proud member of Democratic Socialists of America. She's not...

    WASHINGTON -- I have in my office a framed note from President Donald Trump. It says, "Bob, Now We Really Did It. Thanks For All Of Your Help!" The note is dated Jan. 13, 2017. He was responding to my congratulatory email to him earlier acknowledging that indeed he "did it." He won the election and was then gearing up for his inauguration and what would follow. Today he has been president for almost a year and a half. What has he done? He has realized more of his conservative campaign promises than anyone since President Ronald Reagan. Perhaps he...

    Edgy comedy website, Cracked, has silently let go “a lot” of its staff after various writers and some senior staff were let go from the site, which has been confirmed by various writers let go and the executive editor, David Wong, confirmed the news. Across Twitter various individuals caught wind of former Cracked writers who have been laid off in the process of Cracked trimming the financial of those individuals let go is former managing editor, John Cheese. So Cracked had no qualms about getting rid of its upper management. This was further corroborated by executive editor, David Wong......
  • (Vanity) All you need to know about John McCain

    As I watch another passive-aggressive hit on Trump by McCain, his latest being his remarks about the Kushner-Russian back channel fake news story, I see a shrinking and increasingly butt-hurt man. A man who was once a hero and has since been corrupted and minimized by the swamp in which he now comfortably resides. But all you have to do to know John McCain is to consider something. As one of the most powerful Veterans and senators in Washington, it was under his watch, spanning several different administrations, that the VA crumbled into one of the most shameful and embarrassing...
  • 6 Reasons Breitbart Is The Most Bat---t Crazy Website Ever (CRACKED slimes Breitbart)

    A few weeks ago, Donald Trump decided his campaign team wasn't Legion of Doomy enough, so he added Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon. Now, a presidential candidate forming an alliance with a media website in itself is pretty weird, but Breitbart isn't just any media outlet. Breitbart makes Fox News look like the BBC. If websites were people, Fox News would be your friend who's casually thinking of voting for Trump because they can't stand Hillary Clinton, and Breitbart would be Donald Trump when he went on the WWE.

    Sun Tzu, generally considered a reliable source on Good War Ideas, said something along the lines of, "You've got to know your enemy in order to beat him, because some dudes hate being kicked in the junk and others seem to enjoy it." The difficulty we've had defeating ISIS suggests that, maybe, we don't really understand who and what the [censored] they are. Everything we hear is filtered through politicians and pundits, each with their own agenda ("You know what ISIS is afraid of? Me, Donald Trump!"). Fortunately, it turns out that finding out what ISIS wants is like finding...

    Look, we here at Cracked aren't cockeyed optimists (or cockeyed anything, for that matter). We've lived in this world long enough to understand that some folks just aren't "on the level" and the things they say should be "taken with a grain of salt" because they're "completely full of $%^&." But even jaded, cynical @*#&$@$ like us should expect more from reputable news organizations. Shouldn't we?Nope! Just take a look at a few of the more blatant lies that once passed for journalism.

    What do you imagine when you hear the word "welfare"? Most of us think of a minority living in a filthy house with five kids running around while an alcoholic dad sleeps it off face down on the couch ... if there's even a dad at all. I talked in another article about the things politicians will never understand about poor people, but it's not just Washington elites who treat the poor like an alien species. Hell, I find myself thinking in "welfare queen" stereotypes, and I grew up among them. The problem is that everyone -- from the news...

    Islam believes in freedom of speech, because freedom (from hell) is part of Islam. Other kinds of freedoms have to have limits. When the true profit is denigrated, three billion Muslims are offended, so there must be consequences. Islam is a revealed religion, so it must be protected and honored, none more deserving than the Profit (saw). As believers in the Allmitey and in religious decency, we must instigate riots and kill those who share the same citizenship as those who perpetrated the crime against Islam. I hope we all unite and go KABOOOM!

  • Sherman Minton Bridge Closed Indefinitely After Cracks Found

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels ordered the immediate closure of the Sherman Minton Bridge on Friday evening. Transportation officials in Kentucky and Indiana were informed Friday of the discovery of two cracks in the load-carrying element of the bridge on Thursday. Officials with the Indiana Department of Transportation said the crack is in an arch support over the Ohio River. There are two archways on the bridge; the crack was found on the underside of the roadway, near the archway closest to the Ohio River. Officials called the cracks incredibly serious and potentially catastrophic. "I would not have...

    ~ EXCERPT ~ The battle over the federal deficit hasn’t flipped in favor of the Democrats. The GOP isn’t suddenly at grave risk of losing its House majority. But after two years of getting pummeled over spending and the size of government, Democrats now appear to have found a political weapon that’s capable of evening out the fight: Medicare. The popular entitlement program wasn’t the sole issue behind Kathy Hochul’s upset victory in a New York special election Tuesday night, but strategists in both parties say it was an important force. And for the first time since November, the idea...

    A North Carolina man who allegedly cracked the code to mentally calculate any multiplication problem is now offering to reveal his secret - for the bargain price of $33. Albert Clay said he came up with his system as a high school junior, but never showed anyone aside from a high school math teacher who shrugged off the achievement, the News & Observer reported. Now 75 years old, the retired pharmacist has copyrighted the formula, "How to Multiply Any Number by Any Number in Your Head," and hopes to demonstrate it in schools, books or even personal mailings to anyone...

    Most people have already seen the following images in the ‘WTF’ sections of social bookmarking sites, in threads dedicated to badass pictures or just circulated through their inboxes by the “funny” boss. There is never an explanation for these pictures, because they seem to intrinsically defy explanation; they are just still moments in time of unbelievable scope, and epic badassery. It seems hard to imagine what brought about the extraordinary circumstances these images depict, and that’s the magic, really - letting your imagination run with these ridiculous situations. Well, I decided to do some research on what the actual explanations...
