    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...
  • Cuban State Media: ‘Negro’ Obama ‘Incited Rebellion and Disorder'

    The Havana Tribune, a state-controlled Cuban newspaper, has added insult to injury following Fidel Castro’s scathing criticism of President Barack Obama upon his departure from the island. In an editorial, the title of which refers to President Obama as “negro,” an opinion columnist has accused him of “inciting rebellion.” The article is titled “Negro, ¿Tu Eres Sueco?” which roughly translates to “Black Man, Are You Dumb?” (The idiom “pretend to be a Swede” means to play dumb, hence the title is literally asking, “Are you Swedish?”) The author, who is black, goes on to condemn President Obama for meeting with...

    During an Iowa campaign rally on Tuesday night, Donald Trump took a shot at rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), noting the senator's Cuban ancestry."You gotta remember. In all fairness, to the best of my knowledge, not too many evangelicals come out of Cuba, OK? Just remember that, OK? Just remember," he told the crowd in Council Bluffs, Iowa. "When you're casting your ballot, remember."Trump made the comments while discussing Cruz's support in the polls, according to Business Insider.The real estate mogul made a similar comment earlier in December during a town hall event in Des Moines, Iowa. "I do like...
  • Robert Mugabe ‘proposes to Barack Obama’ [Zero a laughingstock]

    During his weekly interview with the national radio station, the Zimbabwean president joked that he planned to travel to Washington DC ‘get down on one knee and ask his hand’. Mugabe, who is known for his brutal crusades against homosexuality, was responding in bizarre fashion to the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling that the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees gays and lesbians the same right to marry as heterosexuals. Speaking on on Saturday, Mugabe said: ‘I’ve just concluded – since President Obama endorses the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance – thus if it becomes...

    The White House was scrambling Monday to put a positive face on an upcoming summit of Persian Gulf states after learning leaders from four of the six invited nations are expected to skip. While those nations are still sending representatives to the summit being hosted by President Obama later this week at Camp David, the absence of crucial heads of state -- notably, Saudi Arabia's new king -- could present an awkward situation for the administration. But State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf rejected the notion this was a "snub," and White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest likewise said the administration...

    Jeb Bush says he doesn’t want a “coronation,” and New Hampshire voters are making sure he gets his wish. Facing an audience of skeptical activists at a pivotal GOP gathering, the former Florida governor tried to assure voters he’s a real conservative in a somewhat rocky return to the campaign trail here. “My record’s a conservative record,” Bush said in response to a question at a nationally watched gathering of GOP activists attended by nearly all of the party’s presidential hopefuls. “It’s not a Republican-in-name-only record. ... It’s an ‘I’m not kidding’ conservative one.” Bush had just finished his stump...

    The White House Thursday was officially declared a “Laughingstock” and will be demolished by the Department of Interior within a month, officials said today. The proximate cause of the declaration was the White House decision to take the presidency to a brand new low, inviting in three absurdly unqualified and generally ridiculous people to interview the president of the United States. In what the White House no doubt concluded was a brilliant stunt that would allow President Obama to widely distribute his message unimpeded by tough questions and annoying follow ups, Obama aides enlisted three people who have built a...

Nevertheless, the Obama administration believes that we need to give the Islamic Republic another chance, trusting the...

    The State Duma has passed a motion suggesting that the US and EU extend the freshly introduced sanctions to all Russian MPs rather than a limited group of officials, defying western pressure just hours before Russia and Crimea signed a federation treaty. The motion was supported by a unanimous vote on Tuesday morning. It was prepared the day before by all four parliamentary parties after representatives of the United States and the European Union said they were slapping sanctions, such as visa bans and asset freezes, on a number of Russian officials who are seen as “key ideologists and architects”...

    Iranians honor man who killed hundreds of Americans and say full steam ahead on nuclear weapons despite Obama claim! So, Obama's bragging about the deal with Iran on Tuesday and said "give peace a chance." Perhaps Obama remembers the John Lennon song of the same name during his pot smoking days in that stoner choom gang he belonged to in Hawaii. But as details emerge, it now appears that the deal with Iran is even worse than first thought. It now appears that Obama, who claimed that his Administration would be the most transparent in history, inked a secret side...

From AP via My Way News (12/11/2013): Mandela ceremony interpreter called a 'fake' JOHANNESBURG (AP) - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela's memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa's government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages....

    Iran's President Hassan Rouhani tweeted historic news on Friday afternoon before quickly deleting it. Then, minutes later, he tweeted about the conversation again. The screenshot below shows Rouhani's initial tweet, a sentence fragment that indicates he had just spoken on the phone with U.S. President Barack Obama. This was the reportedly the first communication between American and Iranian presidents since 1979. Minutes after, the tweet had disappeared from Rouhani's Twitter stream, leaving many questioning its veracity. Only minutes later, Obama confirmed the phone conversation in a press conference and said he had spoken with the Iranian leader. "The very fact...

  • Caroline Glick: Obama is turning United States into a global laughing stock

    Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick explained to WMAL this morning how Obama’s fecklessness over Syria has put Israel in danger, not because Israel needs the US to defend it from Syria, but rather how much it emboldens enemies like Iran who will no longer believe that American statements have any credibility. She also says that Obama has turned the United States into a global laughing stock with the way he’s gutted the American military for no rhyme or reason, how he’s essentially left Afghanistan to the Taliban, his support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who is an enemy of...

    NewsBusters ^ | May 30, 2013 | P.J. Gladnick
    On his Wednesday radio show, Glenn Beck read a threat of Occupy Wall Street violence that appeared on the Web. Although no author was mentioned, it was written by DU fraudster William Rivers Pitt  who has a history of involuntarily turning himself into a Web laughingstock on numerous occasions. Remember the Karl Rove indictment hoax back in May 2006? Pitt was one of the perpetrators of that non-event. Since David Shuster of MSNBC at that time practically assured that Rove would be indicted, Pitt and his cohorts decided to deliver a "scoop" that Rove had already been indicted on May...

    No, it's not an early Halloween prank. The Associated Press is reporting that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a new "public health campaign" and has "urged citizens to prepare for a zombie apocalypse." The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have gotten into the act as well and have launched a series of seminars and social media campaigns on zombie attack survival. A CDC pamphlet, "Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse" gives a history of zombies and checklists of all the survival items that citizens should have in stock in case of a...

    n a web ad produced by Obama's campaign, the President dials up Kal Penn -- in character as Kumar the stoner -- to see if he's "on board" to support him this year. "Hey, this is Barack," Obama says after he dialed Kumar on the phone. "Listen, I need to know if you're on board. Okay, good. Because I'm counting on you, everybody is. We have to get this right. So there is a lot at stake here. Just remember I am trusting you on this and I'll see you there." The video then jumps to Kumar sitting on the...

    The race for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts has taken a turn toward the absurd. The contest pits two highly qualified candidates — Scott Brown, the incumbent, who made history by snatching Ted Kennedy’s seat away from the Democrats, and challenger Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard Law professor and whiz-kid of the Obama administration who created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. If any election could be counted on to maintain a high-minded tone and stick to important issues, it’s this one. Instead, Topic A is Warren’s facial features. From a campaign standpoint, Warren hasn’t done much to end this silly brouhaha. She...
