  • Global warming could leave us crying in our costlier beer

    Add beer to chocolate, coffee, and wine as some of life’s little pleasures that global warming will make scarcer and costlier, scientists say. Increasing bouts of extreme heat waves and drought will hurt production of barley, a key beer ingredient, in the future. Losses of barley yield can be as much as 17 percent, an international group of researchers estimated. That means beer prices on average would double, even adjusting for inflation, according to the study in Monday’s journal Nature Plants . In countries like Ireland, where cost of a brew is already high, prices could triple. The findings come...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This is what the Creepy Porn Lawyer calls a “moral victory.” – Monday was not a good day for Creepy Porn Lawyers, specifically, the nation’s most infamous Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti. You know, the guy who thinks he’s going to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee in 2020. Don’t laugh – he’s such an outright fraud that he just might get there, because we all know how Democrat voters love to nominate frauds for the presidency. Think about it. Yesterday, fresh off of making a national laughingstock of himself for putting...
  • Warren accuses Trump of ‘creepy’ comments about her DNA test

    WTOP-TV ^ | October 16, 2018 | Darlene Superville, The Associated Press
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested President Donald Trump’s comment about him personally administering a DNA test to her to prove her Native American heritage is “creepy.” She tweeted Monday that the president makes “creepy physical threats” about women who scare him, including her. “He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself,” the Massachusetts Democrat responded on Twitter after Trump made the comment during an appearance in Georgia. “It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work.”(continued)

    The self-proclaimed Climate Prophets who claim they can predict climate years in advance are either deliberately lying or incredibly stupid. Weather related scientists don't know enough about the factors that control daily weather to make more than approximate predictions of short term weather. How can anyone believe weather scientists can accurately predict weather decades in advance? If you look at a Weather Bureau forecast you will notice that if it predicts the possibility of rain the prediction will show the probability of rain as a percentage. The probability of rain might by 20% or maybe 60%. Meteorologists know rain can...
  • Serial Fibber Brian Williams: JFK Served Under General Eisenhower in WWII

    Serial fibber Brian Williams told yet another whopper on Friday night from his home in MSNBC exile known as The 11th Hour with Brian Williams. So what else is new? What makes his latest historical untruth ironically special is it came as Williams along with historian Michael Beschloss were fact checking President Donald Trump for a supposed error he made during his speech at a rally in Lebanon, Ohio on Friday. For years following the Civil War, many historians as well as much of the public in general discounted the military abilities of General Ulysses S. Grant by claiming he was able...

    Aays results say she could be between 1/32nd and 1/1,024th Native American. Statement From Boston Globe: "Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 10th generation relative. It should be 1/1,024."

    Senator Elizabeth Warren has released an analysis of her DNA showing that she has Native American blood. An analysis of Warren's DNA sample showed she had a Native American ancestor in her family dating back six to 10 generations. The release of the analysis comes after President Trump has mocked her repeatedly for her claim that she has Native American blood and called her "Pocahontas." Critics have charged that Warren has advanced her career with a narrative she is a descendant of Cherokee and Delaware tribes. A report released Monday says that the majority of Warren's ancestry is European but...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) This is just how the fake news media op…ok, well, as I was saying…yes, of course but…oh, nevermind. – In a 26 minute interview on 60 Minutes last night, fake journalist Leslie Stahl interrupted the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, 64 times. In an interview with Barack Obama on 60 Minutes several years ago, he was interrupted 4 times. But there is no bias at CBS News. Just ask them, they’ll tell you. And when you start to object, they’ll interrupt you. Another Democrat-run city, another abject failure...

    Some parents are proud when their kids are kind, generous, loving and compassionate. Feminist parents are proud when their kid CRIES after encountering a non-feminist. That’s exactly what Maggie Gyllenhaal’s daughter did. She’s obviously proud, because she told the story to everyone on “The View.” “She ran into somebody recently, a little girl her age, who said she wasn’t feminist and my daughter was astonished … she came home and cried to me about it,” she said. The View ✔ @TheView @mgyllenhaal shares about her 12-year-old daughter, who she calls an activist: "She ran into somebody recently, a little girl...

    Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, continued Sunday to accuse her Republican opponent of voter suppression even though the state recently broke its voter-registration record on his watch. Ms. Abrams alleged that Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp has stalled 53,000 voter-registration forms as part of a “pattern of behavior” aimed at gaming the election in the GOP’s favor. “It’s part of a pattern of behavior where he tries to tilt the playing field in his favor or in the favor of his party,” the Georgia House Minority Leader told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “This should not require...

    Here is the thing that is so amusing about CNN… Pretty much every day the far-left network engages in numerous acts of self-humiliation. A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath … and for what? If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNN’s ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN...

    President Donald Trump gazes out over his rally crowd and looses a stream of insults with a theatrical flourish and playful grin. He jabs at Cory Booker the “disaster” mayor, Elizabeth Warren the “Pocahontas” pretender and “sleepy” Joe Biden. “I want to be careful,” Trump tells the crowd, feigning a confession. He doesn’t want to hit his potential challengers too badly, he says, because then the Democrats may find “somebody that’s actually good to run against me. That would not be good.” The venue may be Council Bluffs, Iowa, or Erie, Pennsylvania, or Topeka, Kansas, but the formula is largely...

    The New York billionaire seems unable to comfort the nation in times of tragedy or celebrate its moments of triumph.It is a poignant paradox of Donald Trump’s ubiquitous presidency—all tweets, all the time—that a leader who prides himself as omnipresent in digital public discourse is so often absent from national life in the hundred human ways in which the country has come to expect its presidents to perform. Latest case in point: After Hurricane Michael devastated parts of Florida’s Panhandle, Trump played host at the White House to Kanye West, who—in a ten-minute monologue in the Oval Office—dropped the F-bomb...

The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.

    A violent incident, in which members of a Trump-supporting far-right group kicked and punched people and wielded a sword on the streets of Manhattan, was captured on camera Friday, and New York Police Department confirmed that three arrests had been made in connection with the incident. The altercation occurred shortly after the group, which calls itself Proud Boys and is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, held a meeting at the New York Metropolitan Republican Club. Before the meeting, the club had been vandalized. Fox News, in its story on the incident, seized on the...

    The Campaign Update Week in Review (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The most outstanding feature of this week was the media going nuts. What was so interesting about it to me was that they went nuts every time President Trump told the truth For example, at the formal swearing-in of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the President told the truth about the fact that he had been subjected to a shameful smearing organized by the Democrats. An absolute, unarguable fact. The media went nuts. At his rally in Ohio Friday night, Trump told the truth about the unarguable fact that...

    The new Roseanne Conner was unrecognizable, a once proudly feminist freethinker that was conned into voting against her family’s best interests (not that the show wanted to get into that), and a survivor of parental abuse that went from vowing to never strike her kids to championing spanking a teenager. It felt like the Roseanne revival was written by people working from glancing at Wiki summaries of old episodes; the characters were all there, but their personalities had been edited by randos. Now, in the kind of scientific sitcom experiment that we practically never see conducted, we get to witness...

    In Cinncinatti, President Donald J. Trump rankled the mainstream media yet again this weekend with seemingly complimentary comments regarding Confederate General Robert E. Lee as a "great" military leader. Yet, a full tale of the tape reveals that the commander-in-chief only made such comments as a preface to heralding Union General and United States President Ulysses S. Grant as a truly exceptional leader who was finally able to help President Abraham Lincoln defeat the South.First, NBC News tweeted an edited clip without context that made it appear as if President Donald J. Trump were discussing only Robert E. Lee. In the...

    Cortes said Lemon called Trump a racist every night, but Lemon said he hadn't done it that particular night. "Don't make up things," Lemon said. "Just about every night, how about that," Cortes said. Lemon said he did it "a lot" but only when it was "warranted."
