    So this happened. I have a hypothesis. Gay people often get away with murder. Certainly behavior that straight men could never get away with. So my producer and I put that to the test. Behaving the exact same way and even repeating the exact same phrases to women at the mall. The only difference? One of us is gay. One straight. The reactions are, well... entirely expected. You're welcome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngATnQFL-FQ

    Uh oh... As you know, the past 48 hours has been extremely tough for Milo Yiannopolous. After the liberal media deceptively edited a video of him, they accused him of "being okay" with pedophilia, but that's simply not the case. You can see his full apology and retraction here. [Ed. -- There's no link given on the original site, which is why I can't post the link to the retraction here.] Having said that, the liberal left jumped ALL OVER Milo during these past 48 hours. However, are they as ferocious when video emerges of someone on THEIR team joking...

    It's hard to separate Donald Trump's businesses from his politics. As a result, some are calling for a boycott of any company that sell Trump products. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October following the publication of a leaked tape that showed Trump making lewd comments about women. Coulter used the hashtag to encourage people who were offended by Trump's language and actions to boycott companies doing business with his family.

    I admit it. I’m a night owl. Producing the Hugh Hewitt Show, and for decades well before that, going back to the Johnny Carson era, I’ve had a weak spot for late night television. I can look past the 10:1 ratio between jokes at Republicans’ expense versus Democrats’ expense. That bias, like virtually all mainstream media bias, is chronic and will not go away anytime soon. That said, last night, James Corden on CBS’ Late Late Show took it to a whole new level…by leaving the country in order to “protest” the Trump executive order on immigrant travel. Last week,...

"It's a variety show in the style of 'Pee-wee's Playhouse' and it's basically Barron Trump getting read a bedtime story, and then deciding to stay up past his bedtime and play with his imaginary friends," Noll said Friday. Those include: Ben Carson, a "woke young kid and her Auntie, who has just come in from India," Betsy Ross and Vladimir Putin as "sort of a gossiping teenager." Though Noll conceived...

    At least six out of the seven countries targeted by President Donald Trump’s latest executive order have entry policies that discriminate against Israel. Trump signed an executive order Friday temporarily prohibiting citizens from seven majority Muslim countries — specifically Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen — from entering the U.S. Of that group, Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Sudan refuse entry to foreign travelers holding passports or travel documents indicating that they have been to or are affiliated in some way with Israel.

A mother has been given probation and been spared jail despite pleading guilty to raping her daughter's 13-year-old boyfriend. Elaine B.

"Religious freedom" is in scare quotes, a warning that deplorables will use that thing called religion as their weapon of choice in the coming assault on the LGBTQ community. The same website is celebrating a petition urging the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to reverse its acceptance of an invitation to sing at President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration. The freedom to disassociate becomes a terrific idea when used to reject Republicans or conservatives. Slate's story has a hero...

Ramon, who is 12, was a student at Royal Oaks Middle School outside of Detroit during the final months of the presidential race.

She wasted no time in flaunting her 306 electoral votes and the Democrats’ 52 seat Senate majority. “America has decisively rejected the hate embodied by Donald Trump and his deplorable supporters,” Hillary bellowed, as she gripped the podium unsteadily, still woozy from her 80 proof election night “party.” She went on: “I have a massive mandate to impose fundamental change and usher in a new America!

Wellington acknowledged that “on a strictly fashion note,” Melania pulled off an “angelic look.” But the white designer dress was a “scary statement,” and supposedly gave off the subliminal message “that in the G.O.P. white is always right.” Ten days later, Wellington changed her mind and decided that white was an ok color for politicians to wear.

    Another shooting in Europe yesterday, this time in Germany, shocked the media into action.

But something was different this time. Eyewitness reports began trickling in indicating that the shooter was heard complaining about refugees, so the media shifted gear, dropping the usual journalistic reticence when it comes to discussing a killer’s motives. Many seemed certain that this killer was finally part of the always-expected, but never-quite-materializing, backlash...

    Illustrating that FBI Director James Comey is a liar and a fraud, his agency helped convict a Navy reservist last summer of the same crime that he just cleared Hillary Clinton of committing. In that case the reservist from northern California got criminally charged—as per FBI recommendation—for having classified material on personal electronic devices that weren’t authorized by the government to contain such information. The FBI investigation didn’t reveal evidence that the reservist intended to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel, so he was just being “extremely careless” like Clinton and her top aides. Similar offenses, vastly different outcome. The...

    Hillary Clinton likely dodged criminal charges Tuesday for a simple reason: the bar for bringing criminal charges against a politician, particularly a high public official, is so much higher than they are for anyone else. Prosecutions against such high public officials only go forward when there is “definitive” evidence. Evidence that prosecutors know will lead to a certain conviction. Why do I say that? Because earlier in my career I was chief economist at the United States Sentencing Commission. I worked frequently with prosecutors. The reputational loss public officials face from criminal charges can be so great that prosecutors feel...

    The time was eight years ago. The scene: An Alaska consignment shop. Reporters far and wide ran to the Land of the Midnight Sun to do what reporters do: Go straight to the source, get the facts. This was a huge story, one of national importance, after all… CBS News Headline: Just one week before the 2008 election: Palin’s Consignment Shop’s Owner Speaks The CBS News reporter sent was Julie Chen. Her pointed questions included: “So how long has Governor Palin shopped at your store?” “What does she usually buy at your store?” “And does she also shop for her...

    A Navy sailor entered a guilty plea Friday in a classified information mishandling case that critics charge illustrates a double standard between the treatment of low-ranking government employees and top officials like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and ex-CIA Director David Petraeus. Prosecutors allege that Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier used a cellphone camera to take photos in the classified engine room of the nuclear submarine where he worked as a mechanic, the USS Alexandria, then destroyed a laptop, camera and memory card after learning he was under investigation.
  • Eight "New Normal" Charts That Are Insanely Abnormal--and Dangerous

    Anyone questioning the sustainability and rightness of The New Normal is immediately attacked by the mainstream-media defenders of the crumbling status quo. Not only is everything that broke in 2008 fixed, everything's going great globally, and anyone who dares question this narrative in a tin-foil hat conspiracy nut or simply an annoyingly doom-and-gloomer who recalcitrantly refuses to accept the positive glories of official statistics: low unemployment, rising valuations of stock market Unicorns, etc. But the New Normal is anything but normal; all the readings of artificial life-support and manipulation are off the charts. If the New Normal were indeed a...

    “This skit was outright sacrilege. They know if they did this to Muslims they’d have to be put into the witness protection program,” the singer-actor said. Pat Boone is calling out NBC and Saturday Night Live for allegedly being anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, cowardly, “diabolical” and even demonic for a skit over the weekend that parodied God’s Not Dead 2, the actor-singer’s latest movie. In God’s Not Dead 2, Melissa Joan Hart plays a public school teacher who is persecuted for answering a student’s question about Jesus. In the SNL skit, a trailer for a movie called God is a Boob Man...
  • Ted Cruz Tries, Fails to Explain ‘New York Values’ to Actual New Yorkers

    Cruz's reception in New York was chilly. Back in January, Ted Cruz made the mistake of assuming the rest of America still hates New York. His dismissal of "New York values" didn't endear him to the Empire State — Governor Cuomo demanded an apology from Cruz, and the New York Daily News did what the New York Daily News does best — and as expected, the comment came back to haunt him as he campaigned in the Bronx on Wednesday. Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

    Breathe easy, America. Before you judge Donald Trump's proposed Muslim ban too harshly, consider this: It will not apply to Muslims who are, A. Donald Trump's friends, and B. rich. Feel better? The Republican presidential candidate, with a totally straight face, told MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Wednesday that he has "a lot of friends that are Muslim," many of whom are "rich" and would get special treatment to let them in the country....

    FULTON, N.Y. -- A Fulton nurse convicted of taking a photo of an unconscious patient's penis with her iPhone last year surrendered her license, according to the New York State Education Department. Kristen Johnson was forced to give up her license as part of a plea deal where she pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disseminating of unlawful surveillance photos. Her conviction came after a nine-month investigation by the Onondaga County District Attorney's Office into complaints from her Upstate University Hospital co-workers that she sent pictures of two patients via text message. She was originally charged with two counts of second-degree unlawful...

    TEXAS senator Ted Cruz is embroiled in a sex scandal befitting the bizarre nature of the current the Republican race for the presidential nomination. An angry Cruz has accused “Donald Trump and his henchmen” of feeding the National Enquirer a salacious story claiming the conservative Christian politician has had extramarital affairs with five different women. “This National Enquirer story is garbage. It is complete and utter lies,” Cruz snapped after a campaign stop in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on Friday. “It is a tabloid smear, and it is a smear that has come from Donald Trump and his henchmen.” The supermarket tabloid...
