    A U.S.-based traveller is facing a mischief charge after trying to board a flight with a "mock improvised explosive device" at Toronto's Pearson airport this morning, in an incident that caused an hours-long delay for passengers. United Airlines Flight 547 was set to depart at 7 a.m. ET for O'Hare International Airport, but during security clearance, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found a device in a passenger's suitcase that caused them concern. According to a statement, CBP notified Canadian Air Transport Security Authority officials who "swabbed the mock IED for explosives with a negative result."
  • Flashback: Journalists Mocked Trump’s Announcement As A Joke

    When Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign on June 16, 2015, the savants in the news media weren’t just skeptical — they were openly disdainful of the man who will be sworn in as America’s 45th President at noon tomorrow.   Reporters sniffed that Trump’s campaign was a “carnival show” which threatened to turn the GOP primary race into “a joke.” CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin called Trump a “fool,” NBC’s Chuck Todd blasted him as “a political streaker,” and pundit after pundit insisted the real estate mogul had no chance of winning.   “Can we stipulate for the purposes of...

    At the Democratic National Convention speakers are repeating the claim, amplified ad nauseam by the left and establishment GOP opponents over the past year, that Donald Trump mocked the disability of New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski. This accusation has served as a very convenient tool to both smear Trump’s character and to avoid having to confront him on substantive political issues. But is it true? Here is the story the media is not telling you.

Students from more than 150 Maine schools chose the Republican businessman over Democrat Hillary Clinton in a mock election. The results were tallied Wednesday in the state capital of Augusta.

    "I absolutely agree that it is okay for those of the Left to critique, mock, [and] deride Christianity, but Islam gets a free pass," Zuckerman told "Which is so strange, because if you care about women's rights, if you care about human rights, if you care about gay rights, then you really... uh... then Islam is much more problematic." From a human rights perspective, Christian nations are among the most successful, yet Zuckerman said he would not criticize Islam for fear of execution. "As an atheist, where on planet Earth is the death penalty meted out to atheists? It's...

    After a recent terror threat on an American mall, an official has revealed that the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation has been staging mock attacks in U.S. shopping centers for nearly two years to test their readiness. The secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson recently warned shoppers at Minnesota's Mall of America to remain vigilant after a new terrorist video from Al-Shabaab -- An Al-Qaeda-linked militant group out of Somalia -- threatened an attack on the iconic mall. But, an official told CNN that the FBI has been preparing for such an attack for nearly two years, since the...

    Piers Morgan used a fake news site to mock Sarah Palin on Twitter on Thursday. He linked to the satirical news site The Daily Currant saying that Palin claimed Jesus celebrated Easter. "And she's back!" Morgan gloated, with absolutely no mention that the article was fake. When critics told him the website was satire, Morgan answered that he knew it was. Yet he praised the notion that it was believable. "That's the beauty of it," Morgan wrote when someone tweeted that it was "hilarious even if its fake. Why? I believed it." That wasn't the first time Morgan has derided...

    As Twitchy reported, evidently a rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask must now be entered in the Handbook of Racial Code Words. Don an Obama mask to mock him? Not allowed. The always awesome Dana Loesch laid down the smack in epic style. The rodeo clown crisis was then averted when the Mo. State Fair permanently banned the Obama-mask-wearing clown. No, for reals. They did that. Enter #MockObamaDay:

    In Harvard University’s latest attempt to promote the delegitimization of the state of Israel, Jewish students in freshman and upper class dormitories received mock eviction notices in light of “Israel Apartheid Week”, which is currently being organized on college and university campuses worldwide. The campaign, organized by the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Committee, distributed notices at the beginning of March which read, “We regret to inform you that your suite is scheduled for demolition in the next three days”, a reference to the group’s views regarding Israel’s treatment of the Arab population. The Anti Defamation League (ADL) expressed outrage over the...

    A senior Iranian foreign ministry official mocked on Sunday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's over his bomb diagram during his UN speech last week. Addressing a ceremony in Iran's southern city of Kangan on Sunday, Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular, Parliamentary and Expatriates' Affairs Hassan Qashqavi said, according to the Fars news agency, “The fake regime of Israel is mocked by everyone in the world today, although such cheap actions of the leaders of the occupying Zionist regime are nothing new.” He added that the Islamic Republic's dignity and might has angered Israeli regime officials so much that they show such...

While "MSM" pr0mod Obama rock star (from the Associated Press: "It's not only Obama's youth, eloquence and energy that have stolen hearts across the Atlantic...."), Romney endured a focus on gaffes and the trivial.

    Following the sudden death of conservative rabble-rouser Andrew Breitbart, bloggers began a Be Breitbart and I Am Breitbart campaign. But muck-raking sounds like a lot of hard work and not much fun. If I am going to be anyone, it is Jim Treacher. Sure. He has a lot of fun making fun of our 44th president. He was the one who pointed out, hey, Barry ate dog. Which is more important, slopping Solyndra or eating a dog 40 years ago? Solyndra, of course. But which is more fun to write about? I get angry when I think of Solyndra. When...

    Sarah Palin is the voice of America. She is the mother, the daughter and the wife of good and reason. If the feminine spirit and energies were put on earth to guide and protect humankind, that spirit and energy are embodied in Governor Palin. Gov. Palin delivered a speech on Madison Wisconsin’s “Tax Day Rally” April 16, 2011 which places her as the only previously elected official that is willing to articulate the Conservative cause and defend it against it’s Progressive enemies in government and media. First, I must confess that I was put off of Ms. Palin because of...

    A recent leftist rally against a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square was crashed by proud nationalist Russian Israelis who aimed at making a mockery of the event. Hundreds of people congregated on Saturday afternoon against Jewish Judea and Samaria, and in solidarity with Arab residents of Hamas-controlled Gaza and the recent terrorist-laden Gaza "aid" flotilla. The rally, called "The Government is Drowning Us All," was planned prior to the flotilla incident, but co-opted the issue on the day of the march

    When someone claims to have been “offended” by someone else’s remarks, he is usually grandstanding. Believe me: I’ve been on the receiving end of synthetic outrage more often than most. It’s one of the reasons I feel a certain kinship with Rowan Williams. ... It’s a similar story with the fabricated row about Chris Grayling’s belief that religious B&B owners should not be forced by law to let rooms to gay couples. Such hoteliers are guilty of bad business as well as bad manners: they are harming their profits for no good reason. But you don’t have to be anti-gay...

    Morning Blackberry messages from White House faith director Joshua DuBois notwithstanding, the main religion of President Barack (aka Barry Soetoro) Obama is the Mocking of America. Not only is the president with no past pulling the wings off the eagle called America, he seems to want us to know that he revels in it. Thanks to the British Mail online we found out early this Easter that Obama “worships with prayers sent to his trusty phone”. “He may be too busy to go to church as often as he would like. But President Obama can always find time to check...

    Iranians chanted "Death to Israel" on Friday as Islamist students unveiled a book mocking the Holocaust in an Al-Quds (Jerusalem) Day annual parade to show solidarity with the Palestinians. And in Gaza City, the Islamist Hamas movement that has ruled the impoverished Palestinian territory since June 2007 marked the day by calling for more suicide attacks on Israel. The book "Holocaust," published by members of Iran's Islamist Basij militia, features dozens of cartoons and sarcastic commentary. Education Minister Alireza Ali-Ahmadi attended the official launch of the book in Tehran's Palestine Square. The cover shows a Jew with a crooked nose...
