    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...
  • Tucker Carlson's Nightly Takedown of Lib: December 5th, 2016 Edition(video)

    As I mentioned last week, I was never much of a Tucker Carlson fan until FNC gave him this new show. Now I'm checking almost every weeknight to see if he's embarrassed yet another lib. My biggest worry at this point is that they will all eventually catch on and refuse to appear on his show. Tonight's victim was a smug college kid who came armed with the mustache of a 12-year-old boy and not much else. Enjoy.

    Tension is brewing within the Dakota Access protest as complaints grow about outside activists trashing the camps, mooching off donations, and treating the anti-pipeline demonstration like a Burning Man-style festival for hippies. ďNeed to get something off my chest that I witnessed and found very disturbing in my brief time there that I believe many others have started to speak up about as well. White people colonizing the camps,Ē said Alicia Smith on Facebook. ďThey are coming in, taking food, clothing etc and occupying space without any desire to participate in camp maintenance and without respect of tribal protocols,Ē she...

Earlier today, Nugent shared a graphic titled ‚ÄúSo who is really behind gun control?‚ÄĚ on his Facebook page.

    James Twyman, 'Peace Troubadour,' is embarking on 'the most important and dangerous peace mission' of his life-to the Israel-Syria border and beyond, wielding his classical guitar. ISIS generally doesn't respond well to music. But that isn't stopping James Twyman, an author and musician based in Portland, Oregon, from planning a trip to ISIS-held territory in Syria later this month to help bring peace to the region through the power of a musical-prayer concert.

He was instantly ostracized by the defense establishment and forced to retire. Hackworth, who later went on to a distinguished career as a journalist was a polarizing figure who was hated by the...

That rock legend is Neil Young, who on Sunday said Canada's leaders are ridding Alberta of its First Nation communities with its giant oil sands development. "We are killing these people. The blood of these people are on modern Canada's hands. And it will be the result not of a slow thing, but a fast, horrific thing if this continues," Young said at a...

    Itís easy to dismiss Burning Man as nothing more than a bizarre hippie love-fest that takes place deep in the Nevada desert every year the week before Labor Day. But doing so misses the fact that itís an amazingly successful enterprise--and, as such, has a thing or two to teach about how to inspire creative people and create a great product. Since it first began 25 years ago, Burning Man has grown larger every year (if you ignore the slight dip in recession-scarred 2009). Itís grown so much that this year, for the first time ever, the organization had to...

Through the boat's twitter feed, organizers said that a Greek Coast Guard vessel approached The Audacity of Hope...

    MARRAKESH Ė A bomb killed 14 people including foreigners in Morocco's bustling tourist destination of Marrakesh, officials said on Thursday, in an attack that bore the hallmark of Islamist militants. The blast ripped through a cafe overlooking Marrakesh's Jamaa el-Fnaa square, a spot that is often packed with foreign tourists. A Reuters photographer said he saw rescuers pulling dismembered bodies from the wreckage. If the bombing is the work of Islamist militants, it will be the first time they have carried out a major attack in Morocco since 2003, when a series of suicide bombings in the commercial capital, Casablanca,...

    During her speech to the first ever National Tea Party Convention in Nashville on Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin discouraged the very idea of a national organization, urging the movement to stay leaderless and decentralized. This was the most important and valuable part of Palinís speech. As for the rest of itĖSarah sounded pretty much like the same old Republican Party. Despite the many independents that make up the movement, the tea parties in large part represent a long overdue reexamination of conservative principles.

"The Men Who Stare at Goats" is based on a book by Jon Ronson about a secret unit created by the U.S. army in 1979 which, the author said, believed troops could become invisible, walk through walls and kill goats just by staring at them. Ewan McGregor plays a reporter who stumbles across a member of the unit as he prepares to enter Iraq, and he and Clooney's character Lyn Cassady go on an ill-fated journey...

Robert Barker/University Photography Gabrielle Boley '09 and Ronnie Solomon '08 act out a skit in the Robert Purcell Community Center, Aug. 27, about coming out to dorm-hall residents.

    When I was growing up in Bellflower, Ca., I never, as a child with a good imagination, could have ever imagined that my life would take the peculiar turn that it has. I could not have foreseen giving birth to a child that would eventually be wrongfully and devastatingly killed in war or that I would be meeting with world leaders or be nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. Along with the Vice President of Spain, Foreign Minister of Ireland, Attorney General of Australia and countless parliamentarians from all over the globe, one of the world leaders that I have...

    May 31, 2006 -- A gun-toting stalker, who claimed she was pressured into a lesbian affair by members of a hippie-style commune on Staten Island, opened fire on its co-founder in a midnight ambush that left him critically wounded, authorities said yesterday. Despite his life-threatening injuries, Jeff Gross, who helped establish Ganas, the city's oldest '60s-style commune, was able to tell cops who allegedly shot him once in the chest and twice in the arm outside his Tompkinsville home Sunday night.

    "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." -Yogi Berra With all due respect to Yogi, the question is which fork to take. With Election Day approaching, and the very real possibility that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid may retake Capitol Hill, conservatives reply that Republicans must quit hiding and start behaving like Republicans again. This is always the right thing to do. But midterm elections are "base" elections, and since the GOP's conservative base outnumbers the Democrats' liberal base, motivating it and turning it out will ensure a November victory, preparing the way for the bigger...

    Two succulent, naturally raised chickens with good farm references are in the oven, snuggled up in a roasting pan like doomed lovers. Fat, perfect carrots are peeled, chopped, seasoned and ready to simmer. "Notice that I am literally barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen," observes Mrs. Crunchy Con, and perhaps, she quips, she should have done her hair for the occasion like Phyllis Schlafly's. The li'l Crunchy Cons, boys ages 2 and 6, are out back in the warm Wednesday afternoon sun, making sculptures out of a bowl of ice cubes -- something constructive and home-schoolish, something very We're Not...

    Mid-Level Business Staffers Hit Hardest... Time Inc. eliminated another 250 jobs today in its latest, largest and, perhaps, last round of cutbacks. The mid-level and junior-level workers shown the door almost all came from the business side of operations at a long list of titles. "As Time Inc. continues to evolve from a magazine publisher to a multiplatform media company, we're continuing to look at our cost base and how to run our business more efficiently and effectively. In doing so, unfortunately, we've had to eliminate a number of positions." "But it's not just about cost cutting," Ms. Zelenko added...

    TORONTO, Canada (The Catholic Register) Ė Quaker and Christian Peacemaker Teams leader Tom Fox was remembered by Christians and Muslims together at a Mass in a Baghdad Roman Catholic parish March 12, the Sunday after his body was found. *snip* "We observed the human-rights abuses of the American armed forces and the chaos that the people were living through. And this time, with the kidnapping and the ultimate death of Tom Fox, I started to realize that we had shifted from being observers to being actual participants, victims, whatever you like."

    YAHK, British Columbia (AP) -- A Vietnam war-era deserter who was caught crossing into the United States and held for a week says he made a mistake when he fled the Marine Corps in 1968. "When I was 18, I wasn't aware that duty and honor would mean as much to me as they do now," Allen Abney, 56, said Monday in this southeast British Columbia town. "Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't have done what I did 38 years ago," he said. "It wasn't worth it, all the pain I caused my family." Abney was arrested March 9...

    March 17, 2006 Hollywood, California As most of you know, Scooter had gone from a regular guy to superstar literally overnight. After shacking-up with the well-known producer who gave him his first major film role in the gay cowboy film, "Home On The Strange," Scooter then went on to a series of gay and straight relationships with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. I couldn't pick up a tabloid without seeing his face on the cover with his love-interest-of-the-moment. In no time, Scooter was commanding tens of millions of dollars a film and his name was on the lips...
