    A potentially par-inspired spar erupted in Massachusetts Friday, leading one golfer to bite the finger off of another. A 47-year-old man was arrested and charged with mayhem after taking matters into his own mouth – er, hands – at the Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth, Mass., WCVB reports. He was taken to jail, while his victim – whose thumb was reportedly chomped off to the knuckle – paid a visit to the hospital. Dispatcher audio obtained by WCVB reports that “two foursomes got into an altercation and there’s been a finger that’s been bitten off.” The audio also said...

    The bicyclist who was fired after being photographed flipping off President Donald Trump's motorcade last month recounted the gesture that has made her a liberal hero on Wednesday, telling MSNBC it was a "spur-of-the-moment decision." Juli Briskman was photographed on Oct. 28 extending her middle finger toward Trump's motorcade as it departed the Trump National Golf Course in Sterling, Va. She flipped off the whole fleet, and then she repeated the gesture when she caught up with the cars again, according to the New York Times. The pictures went viral, and she posted them to her social media accounts. She...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel used a private email server to communicate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta, leaked emails reveal. Emanuel, a former House lawmaker who served early on in the Obama administration, sent an email to Podesta asking him to consider Brian DeSplinter for a position with Clinton’s campaign. Emnauel sent the email from the address “”The email address is still active, according to, and is run through Google’s Gmail service.

  • Tucker Carlson Warns GOP Elite at RedState: You Give “The Finger” To Your Base “At Your Peril”

    Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson appeared on America’s Newsroom on Wednesday to speak to host Martha MacCallum about what would happen if — as even House Speaker Paul Ryan is refusing to rule out — the Republican Party does not accept Donald Trump as its nominee this summer in Cleveland. Carlson singled out RedState for attacking Trump’s voters as “diseased” and “probably on Oxycontin” or “secretly liberal,” but insisted that such talk is inherently counterproductive. “He is on track to receive more votes than any Republican nominee ever,” Carlson began. “He’s already surpassed Mitt Romney’s number in 2012.” He was...

    A former Kentucky police officer is suing a local gun store after he shot his finger off inside the store in a case of bad gun handling vs. horrible gun handling – plus a complete lack of personal responsibility. According to a civil lawsuit, former Glasgow police officer Darrell Smith went to Barren Outdoors and asked to see a .380 caliber handgun. An employee removed the gun from under the counter and handed it to Smith without checking to see if the gun was loaded. Smith then takes the gun, likewise failing to check if the weapon was loaded, and...

    White House Dossier ^ | 5/18/14 | Keith Koffler
    A motorist driving along I-66 in Washington gave President Obama’s motorcade the finger Saturday. It’s unclear if the president gave the driver the finger right back. Rumors that the driver was Solange Knowles could not be confirmed. From the White House pool report: Poolster observed one motorist on I-66 from DC extend his middle finger at the motorcade, but unable to tell if said motorist knew who was in the motorcade, or just didn’t like being passed. Well, I assure you, anyone if the Washington area with a car knows who is generally in a big motorcade. Unless it was...

    Take a moment and look at your hands. Specifically, compare the length of your ring finger to the one you use to point. Is the ring finger longer or shorter than your pointer, and by how much? It turns out that the answer to that question can tell a lot about your mental abilities and appetite for risk. As ConvergEx's Nick Colas details, a 2009 study of mostly male traders working in London found that the ones with longer ring fingers were generally more profitable than those with shorter ones. Traders with the largest fourth finger/second (pointer) finger ratios actually...

    Rather than make bold decisions conducive to peace, the government continues to “give the US the finger” with regard to talks with the Palestinians, Meretz MK Zahava Gal-on charged on Tuesday, reacting to statements by Secretary of State John Kerry that ascribed much of the blame for the present impasse to Israel. Kerry’s statements “are further proof that the extreme rightist… coalition has no interests in reaching an agreement, but rather is dragging out the negotiations and endangering Israel’s existential interests,” she said. “Instead of making courageous decisions, this bad government continued to give the US the finger,” she added....

    Jake Owen has lost part of his right ring finger after sustaining serious injuries in an accident last month. The accident took place over July 4 weekend, while Owen was racing go-karts against Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer — both of whom are professional NASCAR drivers. He was wearing protective gear, but sustained a very serious hand injury despite his gloves. He had to have surgery just days later. “I shattered my fingers — the bones inside,” Owen said. “The doctor said it was like taking a cinderblock and dropping it on your hand. Like it spider webbed the bones...

    A day before the first set of school closings was set to begin, Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis had some harsh words about how the Chicago Public Schools are funded and managed, blaming much of the district’s problems on racism. WBBM Newsradio’s Nancy Harty reports, at a luncheon on education reform, Lewis told members of the City Club that Chicago is the most segregated city in America.

And for 2013, one of the pillars of internet folk art is preparing for takeoff: An animated GIF is about to be sent into space for the first time ever. The message will be beamed over a giant radio dish in California tomorrow as part of the inaugural transmission of Lone Signal, a project that's hoping to communicate with extraterrestrials. The GIF will be sent toward Gliese 526, a potentially habitable solar system 17.6...

    Allen West did an interview with NewsMax today where they discussed everything from gun control to the debt ceiling to Afghanistan. Kinda the shotgun approach to get his opinion on as much as possible in 15 minutes – and it’s a great interview. But as far as gun control, West believes that it just won’t fly with the American people and he doesn’t believe that Obama has the populous mandate that he things he has. West says we’re not talking about the real issues anyway, we’re just talking about a political agenda:

Let's take bets here! We can gloat if we are right in how predictable Obama is. Anyone wanting to post photos of Obama and his infamous finger please do as reminders of this very special maneuver.

    Did Barack Obama intentionally make a one-finger gesture when referring to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton? Quite possibly, yes. The evidence is in a video filmed April 17th from a Raleigh, N.C., speech that Obama gave. "Hillary Clinton, she looked in her element, you know," Obama says right before reaching up and scratching his face with one finger ŕ la Will Smith in "Men in Black." Note the crowd reactions after Obama does it (21 seconds in) and his sly smile afterwards.

    A Dad had his finger bitten off in a fight — at a school nativity play. Parents waiting excitedly for their kids' Christmas performance were horrified as another father stormed into the primary school hall and launched himself at the victim. They wrestled for a few moments until one dad screamed as the other latched his teeth on to his finger. The attacker then bit through the digit before "spitting blood out like an animal". Teachers pulled the pair apart. The pupils, aged five to 11, were preparing in another part of the school — Harton Primary, in South Shields,...

    MOSCOW, - A Russian TV station said it has dismissed a news anchor for flipping the bird while reading an item about U.S. President Barack Obama. REN TV said it dismissed anchor Tatiana Limanova after she made the obscene gesture while saying the president's name during a Nov. 14 story about the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, RIA Novosti reported Thursday. However, officials with the TV station said Limanova's gesture was not aimed at Obama but rather at "editorial staff" colleagues who were attempting to distract her from off-camera. "This does not diminish her guilt and cannot be considered an...
