    WORLD—North Korean President Kim Jong Un came under intense scrutiny this week after meeting with a barbaric nation that has killed over 60 million of its young since legalizing abortion in 1973. Political commentators agreed that by meeting with the nation of savages that abort hundreds of thousands of their young each and every year, Kim Jong Un appeared to be legitimizing the backwards, depraved nation of America. “Just picture Kim Jong Un up there shaking hands with Hilter,” one pundit said. “That’s basically what this amounts to, when you consider that he’s meeting with a country that his killed...

    Editors at BuzzFeed were reportedly aware that one of their reporters engaged in a years-long romantic relationship with one of her top sources, the former director of security for the Senate Intelligence Committee who was indicted and arrested Thursday night for lying to FBI agents. According to the Daily Caller, Ali Watkins, employed as a national security reporter by BuzzFeed from November 2015 to May 2017, informed her superiors of her relationship with James Wolfe, yet none of her stories ever made note of the serious conflict of interest inherent in her covering the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    New York Times reporter Ali Watkins' past tweets are raising eyebrows after revelations she had a three-year romantic relationship with a Senate Intelligence Committee aide now accused by federal prosecutors of leaking sensitive information to journalists, including herself. (Snip) In an April 2013 tweet, Watkins also tweeted about the fictional Netflix television show “House of Cards,” where a young reporter has an affair with an older member of Congress. “I wanted to be Zoe Barnes...until episode 4,” she tweeted. “Sleeping with your source- especially a vindictive congressman? #badlifechoice #HouseofCards”

    This story is being written in facets which I am still putting together. The facets are connected to the JonBenet Ramsey murder, human trafficking, and the suspicious murders of those involved in the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation. Right now, it is being reported on Twitter that a suspicious camp has been discovered in Arizona. There is background noise that there were arrests made last night. Apparently, this may not be true. I am finding confusion around all of these events. twitter.com/MoPopskull/with_replies “Have you seen what is happening in Tucson, Arizona?

    On Wednesday night, CNN's Chris Cuomo asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a (seemingly) simple question: Why don't you support the idea, put forward by some of your Democratic colleagues, to impeach President Donald Trump if your party retakes the House in the fall? This is her answer: "Well, first of all, let me just say, our founders gave us our guidance. They said E Pluribus Unum, from many, one. They couldn't possibly have imagined how many we would be or how different we would be, but they knew that we had to be one. "I have hesitated to use...

    A bodyguard who has protected outspoken moviemaker and gun-control advocate Michael Moore was arrested at Kennedy International Airport for allegedly carrying a pistol without a New York license, authorities said Thursday. Patrick Burk, 34, faced arraignment on a felony charge of criminal possession of a weapon. Prosecutors did not have his attorney’s name. Burk was questioned by police Wednesday night after he notified a United Airlines ticket agent that he wanted to carry his weapon — unloaded and in a bag — on a flight to Los Angeles, said Port Authority spokesman Tony Ciavolella. The bodyguard, who works for the...
  • A Quick Thought On America’s Useless Trillion Dollar Military Industrial Complex

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    America is a country drowning in debt, slowly but surely, and the United States’ trillion dollar (annually) military-industrial complex, as Eisenhower put it more than half a century ago, is part of our national disaster. Before going all MAGA on me, just answer this question: when was the last time the US military defended the homeland? The answer is pretty simple if you know your history: in 1945. The sad truth is that the United States has world’s largest (and best funded) army, yet realistically speaking, it has no (military) enemies. No nation on Earth even comes close to having...

    Mad Maxine is having a temper tantrum because the facts are prevailing. The Time 100 honoree (why?) told the magazine during its ceremony that she wants Trump to “just get out” of office. “If you had to give some advice to President Trump, what advice would you give him?” a Time reporter asked Waters on the red carpet. “Please resign so that I won’t have to keep up this fight of your having to be impeached, because I don’t think you deserve to be there. “Just get out!” she declared.

    The 86-year-old social scientist says accepting the impending end of most life on Earth might be the very thing needed to help us prolong it. We’re doomed,” says Mayer Hillman with such a beaming smile that it takes a moment for the words to sink in. “The outcome is death, and it’s the end of most life on the planet because we’re so dependent on the burning of fossil fuels. There are no means of reversing the process which is melting the polar ice caps. And very few appear to be prepared to say so.” Hillman, an 86-year-old social scientist...

  • Vegan Woman Forced Her Fennec Fox To Go Vegan, And Here’s What Happened

    Fennec foxes eat rodents, insects, birds, rabbits, and eggs, but this one doesn’t. For years, vegan blogger Sonia Sae has been raising her pet fox Jumanji on a vegan diet, and it has developed all sorts of health problems. Recently, however, a few people worked hard to spread the word about this behavior they call abusive, and the internet is infuriated. According to experts, a fennec’s diet in the wild is comprised of about 90% animals and insects while the remaining 10% consists of various plants they dig up. Naturally, they need a lot of protein when living in captivity...

    No one wants to pay unfair prices for something, particularly when that something used to be free. While putting a price on carbon, in the form of a tax or fee, could offer environmental benefits, many question if some people would struggle to pay this tax, or if it’s “right” to charge people for the gas at all. However, a study conducted by 11 different research teams showed that carbon taxes can actually be both effective at curbing greenhouse gas emissions and fair to the tax payer. The researchers claim that depending on the exact mechanism chosen, it is possible...

However, i have this "pull" to construct my final resting accommodations. OK, let me flash forward a little bit... I loved my grandfather dearly. He was a man of very few words, and a lot of hard work; he was a sharecropper. I was always in awe of him. When i was a very young man, 7-ish, he started to teach me woodworking. He taught me; he made things with his hands with me. He showed...

Not just shooting at the bulletproof glass but he’s going to get behind the glass and have his friend shoot at it. Though, he keeps iterating that he’s dumb for doing this. He obviously is an adrenalin junkie. There are many unwise decisions in life, this is certainly one of those. His friend shot at him 3 times...
