    Mark Rober was one of the 11 million Americans who fell victim to package theft, but unlike most victims, he had a plan for when the robbers tried to strike again. Rober was first alerted to the package thieves by his home security system. He knew a package had been listed as delivered, but it never arrived. He checked his home security footage and found that a couple had stolen it right off his front step. "If you've ever been in a situation like this, you just sort of feel violated," said Rober. When he brought the security footage to...

    #MeToo Redux (pronounced re-doo) So I got to thinking about all these purported mail bimbs and the left's attempt to pin it on right-wingnuts as opposed to it being a pathetic false-flag attempt to divert attention from the sinking blue wave. When I heard that De Niro's restaurant received the latest one, it dawned on me that many on the left are probably wondering, "hey, why didn't I get one!!! I'm just as progressive as Hillary or De Niro." Yep, the old hey, what about me? I'm just as deserving. So I can just imagine a second wave of self-mailed...

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is thrilled beyond belief that New York and New Jersey experienced bombings over the weekends. His rationale? At least they didn’t use guns. Can you believe someone could be so stupid to say something like that? How does this child hold down a steady job? Even for a liberal network, it’s ridiculous they allow this sort of thing. I’m not mincing words, either. Read his tweets.
