    A Bro-choicer calling himself “Bacon” on the Return of Kings Blog has come up with a “plan” for convincing a girl to have an abortion to avoid child support. The male abortion advocate writes, “Let’s face it: sexually active people have accidents. Shit happens, that’s life. But we know that men have no reproductive rights in opting out of a being a parent. With only two birth control options available to men (a condom and a vasectomy) the words you use to get your girl off the fence about having an abortion must be well thought out. If you are...

    Arizona Sen. John McCain is expecting a low voter turnout in next month's midterm elections because he says voters are skeptical of both the Obama administration and the Republican Party. “What I’m hearing from my pollster friends is that people don’t like Republicans and they don’t like Obama," McCain said in an interview on Pivot's "TakePart Live," a show co-hosted by his daughter, Meghan McCain. "And they're very, very turned off. And I’m afraid we are going to see a very low voter turnout in this election, and that’s not healthy for, obviously, any of us.” According to the latest...

    BOSTON (CBS) – A New Hampshire woman believes her tweets about an incident at the Philadelphia airport got her booted from a flight. Lisa Carter of Exeter was booked on JetBlue Flight #760 to Logan at 8:30 Tuesday night. But it was delayed several hours after another passenger accused the pilot of being intoxicated. JetBlue says the pilot submitted to a sobriety test which he passed. Carter tweeted and posted photos of what she witnessed at the gate.

    Piers Morgan blames Anderson Cooper's show for Morgan’s awful talk series being canceled by CNN. "Could I have done with a better lead-in? Yes." Morgan tells Politico. "Anderson is a great field reporter, but does he drive big ratings at CNN, outside of a big news cycle? I don't see any evidence of it. And yet the whole bank was being bet on him at 8 and 10 o'clock." Morgan also throws his old CNN boss Jeff Zucker under the bus and pleads with Rupert Murdoch to give him a job. Morgan claims Zucker took his show away because there...

    (CNSNews.com) - "We have our own racial and ethnic tensions," President Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, pointing the "the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri." He made the comments toward the end of a speech in which he urged the world to reject sectarianism, extremism, and violence. "I realize that America's critics will be quick to point out that at times we, too, have failed to live up to our ideals. America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true. "With a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe,...

    It may be hard for Jon Stewart fans to imagine, but the beloved Daily Show host is "anything but warm and fuzzy," according to staffers quoted in Lisa Rogak’s new biography of the comedian, Angry Optimist: The Life and Times of Jon Stewart. One tells the story of a time Stewart screamed in a producer's face and threw a newspaper at her, only to later apologize and explain, "Sorry, that's bad Jon. ... I try not to let him out." There are more such tales of Stewart's angry side in the book, Forbes reports, and Rogak notes, "I'm surprised that...

    New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road. He announced yesterday that he'll do a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the US since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter-century. Stevens, who also is releasing a blues album on Oct. 27 produced by Rick Rubin and titled Tell 'Em I'm Gone, is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild...

    Not surprising: that a 30-something man who appears to have recently gained weight, smokes heartily, and is probably perpetually stressed out from his dictatorial duties might have physical issues. Surprising: that that man is Kim Jong Un—and that state media showed him apparently exhibiting one of those physical issues today. Footage aired on state television showed North Korea's "supreme leader" limping onto the stage at a 20th anniversary tribute for his deceased grandfather, Kim Il Sung.

    PARIS -- An intriguing social phenomenon prompted a horrific killing spree in Santa Barbara, California, last week, and the same phenomenon might help explain the surprising results of last weekend's European Parliament elections. The suspected Santa Barbara killer, 22-year old Elliot Rodger, left behind a 141-page diatribe and multiple online videos expressing frustration over a failure to score with the opposite sex, despite ticking what he considered to be all the right boxes: a BMW, nice clothes and good looks. He couldn't figure out why that wasn't enough. Worse, why would college women instead gravitate towards loudmouth jerks? I...

    It's that time of the week where we once again look for a person or entity that shows itself to be an utter hypocrite or works to undermine American values. Many of our Jerk of the Week winners have been progressive liberals, but we've also taken aim at Republicans as well who just wish to stay feasting at the establishment trough. Our winner this week though is an institution of higher learning (though such claims could be doubted) who has spit in the face of freedom of speech and has totally caved to radical Islam. This week, Brandeis University rescinded...

    Liberals are always spouting that they practice tolerance and that mean old conservatives are all bigots who would round up undesirables into internment camps if given half a chance. We know that such views are nonsense, and that progressive liberals prove themselves on a daily basis to be festering mounds of hate and anger. If there's one thing I despise, it's rank hypocrisy and many of our Jerk of the Week winners are guilty of practicing it. Our winner this week is also guilty of this charge and they're becoming increasingly emboldened. Their actions have hit the internet this week...

    It sure was a busy week for those in the running for our Jerk of the Week honors. We had President Obama and Kathleen Sebelius yet again delay ObamaCare without having the authority to do so. We had intellectual giant Joe Biden voice the insane opinion that illegal aliens in the country were already American citizens in his opinion. Those are worthy candidates, but I find that I like to find a progressive liberal that opens their mouth and say what they actually feel, which serves to expose them as an utter hypocrite. That's why our Jerk of the Week...

    It's that time of the week again where we look among all the deserving idiots and pick our Jerk of the Week. This week was packed with the usual suspects of President Obama, John Kerry, Michael Bloomberg, and many others. I had almost decided to pick Lebron James and other celebrities shilling for ObamaCare (which they'll never have to use being wealthy themselves), but in the final tally, the winner was Bob Costas. For his continued anti-Second Amendment rants and utter hypocrisy, he is our Jerk of the Week. The far left leanings of Bob Costas became painfully apparent in...

    Once again, we begin our weekly awards show to look for viable candidates for our Jerk of the Week honors. The most obvious of choices are liberals, progressives, and others of that ilk, but we must also remain vigilant and look at those who are supposedly on our side. It's hard enough to fight your enemies when your so-called friends are actively working against you. One such entity is the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). As conservatives flock to CPAC to give and hear speeches, an undercurrent of not standing up for conservative values has been prevalent. That is why...

There was a late surge by the federal court in California who ruled that the Live Oak High School could ban t-shirts that had the American flag on them. In a normal week, that would have clinched it, but....we had a strong frontrunner that stayed the course. Our winners for Jerk of the Week are Chuck Hagel and Barack Obama. This...

    Many times we have focused on liberal hypocrites or establishment politicians as our Jerk of the Week recipients. However, there is one category of scum that truly deserves our scorn and disgust. I'm speaking of those who use the power of government to harass their political foes and attempt to stifle their God-given rights as enumerated in our Constitution. That's why our Jerk of the Week is John Chisholm, the Milwaukee County District Attorney. A federal civil rights lawsuit was filed early this week against the special prosecutor, the presiding judge, and top prosecutors in the Milwaukee County District Attorney's...

There was media outlets and Democrats spinning that less jobs under ObamaCare was a good thing. However, the most odious thing that I saw this week (I guess I'm just numb watching Obama lie constantly) was news concerning the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. That is why they are our Jerk of the Week. It was announced this week that the 9/11 Memorial and Museum was going to charge an...

Last weekend, Andrew Cuomo said during an interview, "The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they?...

As anybody who hasn't been living under a rock knows, a major brouhaha has blown up over A&E suspending the patriarch of the Duck Dynasty family, Phil Robertson. In an interview with GQ magazine, Robertson was asked about what he considered sinful and his reply quoted the Bible and included such sins as homosexual acts, bestiality, and sex outside of wedlock. The perpetual outrage machine of the progressive liberal left went immediately into overdrive and, within a few hours, A&E had suspended Phil Robertson...

While it is difficult to wage war against those who worship big government and seek to undermine individual liberty, those forces are much easier to recognize. The harder foe is the one that claims to be on your side, but who then pushes you aside once they've gotten all the political capital that they can get out of you. These sunshine pseudo-conservatives are just as much as a detriment to...

    Usually it's pretty easy to pick a Jerk of the Week here at RightWingPatriot.com, but this week was a little murkier. I could easily decided on Piers Morgan, the host of a pitifully low-rated CNN show, for his obnoxious Fourth of July tweet. He said, "To Life, Liberty & Happiness - and deep, abiding regret that George III couldn't keep his s**t together. #July4." An absolutely pathetic attempt to make himself relevant. Then there was Bette Midler, who tweeted on the Fourth, "Happy Independence Day! Just think, if we hadn't won that war, today wouldn't be a holiday AND we'd...

    Lil Wayne is lying through his diamond-encrusted teeth ... claiming he didn't INTENTIONALLY step on the American flag during a video shoot ... despite the fact he can be seen looking down on Old Glory several times during the performance. Wayne just tweeted about his controversial video shoot for "God Bless Amerika" in New Orleans ... saying, "I didn't step on the flag on purpose! It's a scene in a video where the flag drops behind me and after it drop it's just there as I perform." Translation -- I swear it was an accident ... please don't hate me....

    It is a sad fact of life that there exists many whose sole reason for existence seems to as much as a blight on the enjoyment of life as they possibly can. Narcissistic to the core and contemptuous of those they believe who are beneath them (which just happens to be most ordinary folk), these bringers of misery wreak havoc with people's lives whilst proclaiming their actions are "for the greater good." As we all know though, that these actions hurt most people except for those proposing such actions. RightWingPatriot.com offers up another of these blowhards as the recipient of...
  • Saudi prince sues Forbes for libel

    06/07/2013 8:56:56 AM PDT · by Irenic · 24 replies
    A Saudi prince is suing Forbes magazine for libel because it said he was only worth $20billion in its annual rich list instead of $30billion. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the world's richest businessmen, claims the magazine underestimated his wealth by £9.6billion when it placed him at 26th in this year's list. Being listed as worth $29.6billion would have placed him in the list's top ten. Alwaleed accused Forbes of 'flawed and inaccurate, displays bias against Middle East investors and financial institutions' in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph in March.

    A dispute over a dog resulted in a man being charged with assault occasioning bodily harm when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.He is Donald Brown from a Kingston address. According to Brown, the altercation began after the complainant breached a contract, which stated that he (the complainant) would pay him $35,000 for a 'top of the line' Rottweiler dog, but instead paid only $20,000. The complainant revealed to the court that Brown, however, owed him $15,000 for rent and he deducted the money from the sale of the dog. The complainant told the court that...

    Singer Chris Brown has taken to Twitter to defend artwork outside his Hollywood Hills home that neighbors and the city of Los Angeles want him to take down. Neighbors claim the monsters are scaring neighborhood kids and ruining the hillside aesthetic of the area below Lake Hollywood. "There are lots of babies, lots of children, and they're literally frightened. It's like devils on the wall — big, scary eyes and big, scary teeth, and just the whole vibe is not what we're used to," said Patti Negri, president of the Hollywood Dell Civic Assn. Responding to complaints about the art,...

    I’m calling Gov. Hickenlooper endangered for a reason: he just made a rather poor life choice. You see, the fellow bowed to pressure from East Coast liberals and signed into law today an effective firearms ban masquerading as a “high capacity magazine ban.” John Hickenlooper is apparently just self-aware enough to realize what problems this is going to cause him down the line: “[Hickenlooper] said his office later today will release a “signing statement” to try to explain how the bills, particularly one that limits ammunition rounds, should be interpreted.” If you’re explaining, you’re losing. And here’s why Hickenlooper is...

    "One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these [violent] scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal." So wrote horror writer Stephen King in a Kindle essay Friday entitled "Guns." "Plenty of gun advocates cling to their semi-automatics the way Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson clung to the shit that was killing them," King wrote in his...
