  • What a catch! Suitor offers Obama 50 cows, 70 sheep, 30 goats to marry daughter Malia

    President Obama’s daughter Malia has won her first marriage offer, and boy is he a keeper! Malia, who will be 17 on July 4, received a serious matrimony proposal from a Kenyan lawyer who’s willing to put all his wealth on the table to win her hand. Felix Kiprono reportedly told the scandal-loving Kenyan tabloid The Nairobian he’s willing to pay the president 50 cows, 70 sheep and 30 goats as a dowry for Malia. ”I got interested in her in 2008,” when Malia was 10 years old, Kipromo told the newspaper. “As a matter of fact, I haven’t dated...
  • OPINION: Bernie Sanders is Hillary's leftward advance man

    05/27/2015 6:09:48 AM PDT · by SandRat · 14 replies
    Is Bernie Sanders pulling Hillary Clinton to the Left? No, for the same reason a canoe doesn’t pull an aircraft carrier. The Vermont socialist running in the Democratic presidential race is currently at 7.4 percent in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls, versus Clinton’s 64.2 percent. Clinton is in fact moving leftward on issues like immigration, gay marriage, inequality and more, but it’s not because she’s feeling the heat from a little-known competitor. Still, Sanders is staking out a role as the forward scout of the Democratic Left,

Fazlur Rehman while highlighting the demerits of an operation against the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said that the Taliban were not Pakistan’s enemy and the forces needed to target the real enemies of Pakistan. “The Taliban are our brothers and their angst against the state is justified,” Fazl said adding that, “As brother Ansar Abbasi has so eloquently put in the...

    It sounds like a script from the "Zoolander" movie but it is the hilariously too real report from Jason Horowitz in the very appropriate Fashion & Style section of the New York Times. Horowitz, who often sounds like he wants to ride on Hillary's lap to the White House, covers what he thinks is the oh so important subject of whether Hillary Clinton can win the support of the very very fashionable. First we find out that the very fashionable Marie Claire contributing editor Audrey Gelman no longer feels like an outcast as she did in 2008 for supporting Hillary:...

    If Kenan Thompson ever wants to host a late night show, Reverend Al Sharpton says he better drop some major poundage because nobody wants to fall asleep to a puffy porker. Our photog asked Sharpton which black comedian he'd like to see snag a hosting gig, when out of nowhere he begins blasting Thompson's weight. It's a strange response from Al -- who was once 305 lbs. himself, but now thinks Kenan is so big ... just seeing him gives people the munchies. Ooooh-weeee ... what up with that, Al? Check it out.

This dominance of the three major means of affecting the culture and of transmittinevan+sfvrc+promog information is indisputable and, of course, damaging. Obviously we at Rage fight against the leftist control of the news media, but we also recognize the need to fight against their monopoly in these other arenas as well.

    This week, Late Show host David Letterman retired. Letterman was a funny guy. But he was also an unabashed liberal who often ferociously attacked his conservative guests while gushing over prominent liberal politicians and media figures. Of course, it’s been obvious for quite some time that comedy—whether on television, in film or in the stand-up world—is dominated by liberal voices. But, conservative comedian Evan Sayet is about to change that. Sayet is a pioneer of conservative stand-up comedy and he’s about to bring his no-holds-barred brand of humor to venues across the country. The tour opens on May 27th in...

The Republican Party voter is old—and getting older, and as the adage goes, there are two certainties in life: Death and taxes. Right now, both are enemies of the GOP and they might want to worry more about the former than the latter. There’s been much written about how millennials are becoming a reliable voting bloc for Democrats, but there’s been much less attention paid to one of the biggest get-out-the-vote challenges...

If the proposal wins final approval, the museum will be located at the Celeste Street Wharf in the Lower Garden District. Supporters say the museum will enhance and perpetuate New Orleans' status as a major cultural hub and destination by recreating the saga of the African Diaspora story of slave trade in the United States along the Mississippi River, via the Port of New Orleans. The proposed $170 million museum will include a life-size interactive slave ship built inside...

It was only a matter of time before the other end of this politically correct pincer movement was put into action, by students protesting that those human mascots that remain are too offensively white. Emmet Brennan, identified by the Rutgers student newspaper as a “student assembly parliamentarian” (the word “assemblyman” being verboten, of course), observed one day that the Scarlet Knight mascot has blue eyes and pale skin.

    It’s been a tough week for Hillary Clinton, with a flurry of bad news that is casting further doubt on her prospects for winning the Democratic Party nomination, let alone the White House. She did receive a celebrity endorsement, but, alas, it came from pornographer Larry Flynt, and as Bloomberg’s John Heilemann observes, it “beggars belief that she and her team will be issuing any press releases touting the latest bold-faced name to clamber aboard her bandwagon.” A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans suspicious of Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy.

    Hillary Clinton's first official foray into the 2016 presidential campaign is raising questions about whether the former first lady, senator and secretary of state can find the same common ground with voters -- and the same success -- her husband did in winning two terms in the White House. Unlike Bill Clinton, whose ability to convey to individual voters an air of personal concern for the issues that affected them and their families -- a campaign technique referred to as "retailing" -- Hillary Clinton's initial attempt to connect with voters at an Iowa coffee house and her stealth visit to...

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Jeb Bush confronted one of the Republican Party’s touchiest debates head-on Tuesday, telling Puerto Ricans that conservatives should be proud that America is “an immigrant nation” and value the contribution immigrants make to the country. Immigration is a delicate subject for him in the primacy race, with several potential rivals favoring a harder line on those who come to the U.S. illegally. But he took it up unapologetically in his remarks. “We’re an immigrant nation and we should be proud,” he said, as someone in the audience yelled, “Yes!” “We should create an immigration...

Social Justice Warriors can see something offensive in a grain of sand and demand, and receive an apology. Welcome to Stevenson College. The letter you are about to read is real even though it sounds like it comes from the Twilight Zone.

    On the Thursday edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers jumped aboard the Clinton campaign’s push to discredit the upcoming book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer by mocking Schweizer’s background, previous book titles, and chalking the book up to be nothing more than the latest work from “the cottage industry of anti-Clinton books that come out every year.” Dubbed the topic of the latest “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers introducted the book and that it’s been mentioned in the news before making a Game of Thrones reference to go after the GOP: “Now, when a new anti-Clinton book comes...

    Patriots’ Gronkowski: Maybe Obama Was ‘Wasted’ at WH Ceremony The New England Patriots — minus quarterback Tom Brady — came to the White House on Thursday where President Barack Obama honored them for their 2015 Super Bowl victory. During his remarks, he just couldn’t help but make a joke about the team’s DeflateGate scandal. It did not go over well with the players: Obama also made a joke about tight end Rob Gronkowski’s proclivity for taking his shirt off: Later, when reporters asked the infamous partier if any drinking went down during the ceremony, Gronkowski said, “No. There’s no drinking,”...

    This isn't as damning as the Clinton story from this morning. Or that other story from this morning. Or that one from last week. Or that one from the week before. Or any of those Clinton stories in that book that's coming out. But it does substantiate the argument that Hillary Clinton wasn't completely removed from the Clinton Foundation's accounts receivable department. It turn out that, if you, as a corporation, wanted to get a swanky award from the State Department while Hillary Clinton was in charge, just to commemorate your commitment to global humanitarianism, what you really had to...
