  • Trump-loving model 'attacks stewardesses, threatens to bring down Vegas flight [comfort cat tantrum]

    An international flight from Las Vegas to Frankfurt made an emergency landing in Denver escorted by two F-16 fighter jets on Friday night after what officials called a 'disturbance on the plane.' It turns out the 'disturbance' was an international model and the flight had to land in the Mile-High City after she threw a hissy fit over her 'comfort cat' and even threatened to 'bring the plane down'. Zaneta Hucikova is being held at an immigration detention facility after she allegedly struck a flight attendant who denied her access to her cat, prompting the landing at Denver International Airport........
  • What’s the Deal with Trump?

    The Weekly Standard ^ | September 7, 2015 | Christopher Caldwell
    Two factors produced Trump. First, the governing style of Barack Obama, which, by insulating presidential action from constitutional checks and balances, drove up the value of “deal-making.” Second, the corruption of the Republican party. If the Republican Senate permits the president to pass off his Iran nuclear weapons treaty as a “deal,” abdicating its prerogative to ratify or block, then a better “deal”-maker is all it can offer the country the next time around. Candidates Jeb Bush and Rand Paul have fallen into this misunderstanding, treating Trump as a “fake conservative,” as if he were running for chairman of the...

    In typical Kanye West fashion, the rapper delivered a rambling, nonsensical speech when he was presented with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs on Sunday night. Taylor Swift politely presented Kim Kardashian’s husband with the award, and after he stood silently on stage for several moments, he ranted about crashing Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech six years ago. “And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.”

    August 29, 2015'Scary as hell’: Pens featuring Hillary Clinton’s cackling head spreading by postal mail by Twitchy Staff Vince Coglianese, executive editor of the Daily Caller, tweeted that he received this in the mail yesterday. At first we thought it was a Pez™ dispenser, but now we think it’s just a pen that happens to feature Hillary Clinton’s blood-chilling cackle. It also features Clinton’s logo from her 2008 run, which makes us wonder if there’s a warehouse full of these somewhere — maybe a bathroom closet in Denver, or an EPA mineshaft. We suspect they’re being sent out by either...

    MINNEAPOLIS — The Republican that Democrats fear most isn’t Donald Trump. It’s Jeb Bush, with John Kasich coming on fast. Ask members of the Democratic National Committee whom they least want to face in the 2016 presidential election, and they often joke how they hope Trump stays hot. “We are all Trump supporters,” Glen Maxey, a DNC member from Texas, said with a laugh. The DNC ended its three-day summer meeting Saturday, and members see Trump’s high negatives and penchant for controversy as lethal in a general election. The insiders most respect those who have succeeded politically, and Trump has...

    Following yesterday’s incident in which longtime Univision news anchor and Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos was ejected from a Donald Trump news conference, singer Ricky Martin has penned an op-ed defending Ramos and calling for an end to the attacks against Latinos. The piece was published on Univision and translated to English via Billboard. Martin begins by calling out Trump’s gratuitous harassments against the Latin community. From the beginning his intention was transparent: basically tell barbarities and lies to remain relevant in the public opinion, for votes or simply to stay on the media’s radar.

  • Ten Things You Didn’t Know Were Racist

    08/24/2015 4:51:32 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 41 replies
    1. “Baa, Baa Black Sheep” is racist. The nursery rhyme, which dates back to the Middle Ages, is under attack. Some schools and family centers in Scotland, England, and Australia have eliminated the word “black” as racist, and now refer to “rainbow sheep,” “happy sheep,” or “green sheep,” though these new adjectives make no sense at all. Stuart Chamberlain of the Oxford Sure Start Center in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, said, “Basically we have taken the equal-opportunity approach to everything we do.” A local dissenter, however, called it “Stalinist.” 2. M.A.s may be racist, postmasters too. Stephen Davis, master of Pierson...

    Has fatalistic, gallows humor set in at Hillary's campaign? Or has her staff perhaps been infiltrated by moles from competing campaigns who are trying to sabotage her? Hillary's official campaign store sent out an email this morning featuring beer koozies. The first reads "More Like Chillary Clinton. AMIRITE?" The second shows the Hillary 'H' logo all frosted over. Think of it: her scandals aside, Hillary's chilly, frosty personality is a perennial problem for her. Compare and contrast with good 'ol Uncle Joe Biden. But rather than trying to warm Hillary up, her campaign reinforces the negative image with frosty, Chillary...

    While innocently grilling some pork, Ted Cruz was ambushed by lesbian activist Ellen Page, who tried to shame him for not supporting homosexual marriage.  But instead of Cruz being shamed, it was Page who was tongue-tied while Cruz turned the tables on her. Page claimed that a florist who refused to serve a homosexual wedding was bigoted, but Cruz turned her attention to the Middle East, and asked her why liberals were "completely silent" about the execution of gays, and why Obama is turning over 100 billion dollars to Iran when they are hanging homosexuals.  When Page claimed that Christians...

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan was surprised the State Department hadn’t even made that request, and poked at the administration’s claim that the FBI needed to be left alone to conduct its investigation.

    Time travel is one of the elements of science fiction writing. However, in the case of former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett writing in The Atlantic it is more in the realm of science fantasy, emphasis on fantasy. Lovett's time travel to the near future of President Donald Trump tells us much less about Trump than it does about extreme liberal fantasies. As a bonus, Lovett's essay veers from science fantasy to extreme comedy but first let us watch him mock a future Donald Trump that exists only in his fervid liberal imagination:

    Not so long ago, Hillary Clinton’s supporters main concern seemed to be a fear that her coronation as the Democratic candidate for president would leave her unprepared for battle with the Republican nominee. Now, by all metrics, the former secretary of state retains a historically strong lead in the race to secure her party’s nomination. She is well ahead of the other declared candidates in terms of poll numbers, money and endorsements. But a succession of setbacks and the possibility of another mainstream rival joining the race has, to some degree, checked the presumptiveness of the presumptive candidate. This was...

Have a look at judge for yourself. There's a difference between feisty and flat-out angry. As for funny, Rodney Dangerfield can rest in peace. Hillary's delivery was wooden. The funniest thing she said was a bit of unintentional humor. Speaking of the email scandal, Clinton claimed "I won't play politics with the national security." Right. Protecting her personal...
