  • Nurse Says She Didn’t Laugh as Vet Suffocated, So Angry Family Rolls Sick Video

    There have been a lot of stories over the past few years about doctors and nurses treating veterans terribly at Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals around the nation. Tragically, this sort of horrible behavior isn’t just limited to VA clinics. There are several instances where veterans were treated horribly at other institutions. A veteran at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation nursing home died in 2014. What makes this case truly sick is that the veteran was calling for help, and was ignored, WXIA reported this week. When a nurse did finally enter the room and found the patient, James...

    Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students. . . . Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Ms. Coury told The Duke. “So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that...

    Hillary tapes reveal she voluntarily defended a child rapist that she knew was guilty. In this 1980's taped interview, Hillary Clinton laughed about getting the convicted rapist of a 12 year old child off on a technicality. Hillary got him off with time served in county jail, about 2 months. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge."
  • New video shows StemExpress CEO joking about shipping “a lot” of intact aborted babies

    ( UPDATE, 6:25 PM: Ahead of the full video release CMP has posted quotes from StemExpress executives, who say they ship whole heads, because neural tissue is “insanely fragile,” and that they work with nearly 100 clinics nationwide – half Planned Parenthood – with which they have a good relationship. They also say some abortion clinics they work with are unsanitary and they’ve “seen staph come out of clinics.” This afternoon Los Angeles District Court Judge Joanne O’Donnell lifted a temporary restraining order (TRO) that had been placed against The Center for Medical Progress after fetal tissue procurement company StemExpress...

  • Anchorman Can’t Stop Laughing Over Latest Dubious Claims from Brian Williams

    There was a telling media moment on Friday’s Lou Dobbs Tonight, as the Fox Business host dissolved into a fit of uncontrollable laughter as he recounted the latest questionable claims from suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. By the time Dobbs had finished reading the 30-second update, he was laughing so hard he could barely speak. The spontaneous giggles say as much as anything about how Williams’s pompous persona has deflated over the past two weeks, as the once-top rated anchor has sunk to Commander McBragg levels of incredibility. Here’s the video followed by the relevant transcript (but in...

    Rush Limbaugh: “You’ve got to make sure that when it fails, the right people get blamed, and this is what Obama can’t even do. You have to competently, in an evil mastermind kind of way, design the failure so that it looks like it’s the fault of who? The insurance companies, the hospitals, the doctors, the pharmacies, and, of course, the Republicans. Everybody EXCEPT government.”

    Don't be fooled by the false praise being heaped upon Chief Justice John Roberts by the mainstream media and its favorite go-to legal commentators. Jeffrey Toobin, no less, of the New Yorker and CNN, lets the cat out of the bag--they are celebrating Roberts's opinion in the Obamacare case, even though they know it is a total farce: In the end, of course, Roberts did uphold the A.C.A. as an exercise of the constitutional power to tax. Frankly, that argument is not a persuasive one. As the conservative Justices wrote in their joint dissenting opinion, taxes are enforced contributions to...

  • RI Gov. Chafee: Stop paying for vitriolic commentary

    When talk radio hosts use harshly divisive language, "The advertisers should shut them down," Governor Lincoln Chafee said this morning. Chafee said the solution to the vitriolic rhetoric -- which some have linked to the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords over the weekend -- is for people to stop paying for it, including not buying books from people who use such language. Chafee made his comments in response to reporters' questions after a meeting on health care. He noted that he had been a target of violence-tinged criticism himself. In 2006, conservative commentator Ann Coulter wrote a column, "They...

    When Gary Sanders was pulled over by police he was sure he had done nothing wrong. The company director was obeying the speed limit and not driving dangerously. But to his astonishment he was told he had been stopped for excessive laughing. Mr Sanders had been talking on a hands-free kit and was chuckling at what his friend had said. But the officer who ordered him to stop at the exit to the Mersey Tunnel told him: ‘Laughing while driving a car can be an offence.’ If that had been the end of the matter then Mr Sanders, 47, would...

    A man was handcuffed, arrested and dragged before a court after falling off the settee with laughter while watching Have I Got News For You. Christopher Cocker, 36, was enjoying the BBC1 show when a joke made by panellist Paul Merton had him doubled up with laughter. He collapsed on the floor - but the thud startled his downstairs neighbour who, believing he had collapsed, called police. Officers arrived and said Cocker was initially co-operative but became 'aggressive' when they asked his name and tried to shut his front door. He was eventually disabled with parva spray through the gap...

    JOKES about Jews and the Holocaust have become increasingly common at the Edinburgh Fringe as comedians tackle one of the last taboos. Some think that controversy over Israeli attacks on Lebanon have made Jewish history and beliefs worthy topics for stand-up routines. But one comedian has apologised after his outburst offended Jewish comedians and audience members. Steve Hughes, an Australian stand-up, told The Times that he regretted describing Richard Perle, an advisor to President George Bush, as “that f***ing Jew Richard Perle”. The comment, in his show The Storm, offended audience members including Jamie Glassman, a Jewish comedy writer. Glassman...

    For asthmatics, laughter is no laughing matter Fri May 27, 2005 1:08 PM ET By Alison McCook NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - More than half of people with asthma have symptoms that are triggered by laughter, according to new study findings presented this week. Laughter is "one more trigger in a long list of triggers" for asthma, study author Dr. Stuart Garay of the New York University Medical Center in New York told Reuters Health. However, among people with symptoms brought on by laughter, nearly half said they could laugh attack-free when their asthma was under better control. To Garay,...
