    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...

An article in Boston.com from 2000, shows McCain cannot type on a keyboard.

Bush" The Democratic candidate was speaking in Erie as he prepared to embark on a "whistle stop" train journey through Pennsylvania, hoping for an upset in the state in Tuesday's primary, equal to that achieved nationally by President Harry Truman when he recaptured the White House 60 years ago.

    STEELTON, Penn. - Democrat Barack Obama lashed out Sunday at rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, mocking her vocal support for gun rights and saying her record in the Senate and as first lady belied her stated commitment to working class voters and their concerns. "She knows better. Shame on her. Shame on her," Obama told an audience at a union hall here. The Illinois senator has spent three days on the defensive after comments he made at a San Francisco fundraiser were disclosed that suggested working class people are bitter about their economic circumstances and "cling to guns and religion" as...

    The Miller Brewing Company, a sponsor of this weekend's homosexual "leather" street fair in San Francisco, has asked to have its logo removed from an advertising poster that has offended some Christians. The advertisement portrays Christ and his disciples as half-naked sado-masochists. "While Miller has supported the Folsom Street Fair for several years, we take exception to the poster the organizing committee developed this year. We understand some individuals may find the imagery offensive and we have asked the organizers to remove our logo from the poster effective immediately," the company told Cybercast News Service on Tuesday.

"Deployments for a child are a very depressing thing, and especially for particular ages who do not know how to deal with it," said Senior Master Sergeant John Roth, the base deployment coordinator. Aviano officials hold a mock deployment for children of deployed members twice a year to give them a taste of what their parents' experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan might be like. It...

    Functional Family: Mock theta mystery solved Erica Klarreich A pair of mathematicians has solved a problem that had tantalized number-theory researchers for more than 8 decades. It is the so-called final problem of the legendary Indian mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan. In the years before his death in 1920, Ramanujan studied theta functions, which are numerical relationships that show special symmetries. On his deathbed, Ramanujan wrote a letter to his British collaborator G. H. Hardy, in which he listed 17 complicated formulas for new functions. He called them mock theta functions because they had some properties similar to those of theta...

Now he could lose his job. "How do you like to unwind?" Bremen High School District Superintendent Rich Mitchell asks in the mock documentary that he later posted on the Internet. The tape cuts to a teacher who replies: "I enjoy a lot of leisure activities." "Such as?" Mitchell asks. "Killing," says the teacher. Mitchell asks another teacher: "What...

    Mike Wallace could be barred by his own network from covering gun-related stories on CBS News. The "60 Minutes" showboat correspondent appeared at a birthday party for columnist Art Buchwald -- a party that was also a fundraiser for the Brady Center, a prominent advocate of gun control laws. At the event Wallace showed a 47-second video of a past "60 Minutes" segment that, by Wallace's own admission, cast former NRA President Charlton Heston in a less-than-favorable light. In introducing the video, Wallace called Heston the "self-righteous enemy of the Sarah and Jim Brady bunch," according to a CBS News...

There were many students, socializing, eating lunch, laughing. We approached a small group, a young man and two young women, sitting on a bench. "May we talk to you?" I asked. Hearing our English, the good-looking, angular young man turned to us, "Where are you from?" he asked. "The USA," I said. He responded, "The big evil, huh?" clearly mocking the mullahs who refer to the United States as the "Great Satan," and...

    BERLIN (AP) - Prince Ernst August of Hanover, the controversy-prone husband of Caroline of Monaco, allegedly gave the stiff-arm Hitler salute to an airport security guard during an argument, prosecutors said Wednesday. The security guard told police the dispute erupted when the prince resisted being checked before boarding a plane Nov. 24 at Hanover's Langenhagen airport, prosecutors in the city said. Ernst August allegedly shouted insults, then raised his arm in a Nazi salute, said a prosecutors' spokesman, Thomas Klinge. He said prosecutors were considering whether to charge the prince with verbally abusing the security agent and making an outlawed...
