    A motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real jerk, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicitly offensive terms. The tirade goes on and on without the officer saying anything. When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the...

    President Trump's son sounded off on the current state of the Democratic party on Wednesday during a FOX News appearance with Sean Hannity. In discussing Democratic opposition to President Trump, the 45th president's son told Hannity he has "never seen hatred like this." "To me, they're not even people," Eric Trump told the conservative host. "It's so, so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have flown out the window." "You see the Democratic Party — they're imploding," the Trump son continued. "They're imploding. They're imploding. They have no message!" The executive vice president of the Trump Organization went on to...

    It is becoming obvious. The powers that be do not follow sharply delineated lines. The oligarchy running this country come from all sectors of society...liberals, leftists, GOPe folks, conservatives pretending to be for what is right and many of the ultra rich. It's all about money and the love of money. We, the people, want for things to be done with righteousness and justice. The oligarchy really cares nothing for those principles, but rather, wants to make sure the channels of income keep flowing. The Trump administration is the only entity in this nation actually trying to do things which...

    Edward Snowden Tweeted the following: "If you're writing about the CIA/@Wikileaks story, here's the big deal: first public evidence USG secretly paying to keep US software unsafe. pic.twitter.com/kYi0NC2mOp" During the time of the dust up over Snowden, I wrote my Seminal article dealing with this. Under the 1996 Telecom Act, Software and Equipment manufacturers are required to provide backdoor access and were compensated to do it. Why? Because, it is unconstitutional to make such a demand. However, as "an Investor" in these companies, the givernment has the right of ownership and access to technologies they "invest in". That is how...

    Turkey's anti-terrorism police have detained over 440 people for alleged links to the Islamic State group, the state-run agency reported Sunday. The Anadolu Agency said 60 IS suspects, the vast majority of them foreigners, were taken into custody early Sunday in the capital, Ankara. It said a total of 445 people were detained in simultaneous pre-dawn police operations that spanned several cities, including Istanbul and Gaziantep, near the border with Syria. The largest operation was in the southeast province of Sanliurfa, where police took into custody more than 100 suspects from multiple addresses and found materials relating to Islamic State...

    Donald Trump: ‘I don’t want the celebrities — I want the people’ By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times - Wednesday, January 18, 2017 President-elect Donald Trump says he wants “the people” — not the celebrities — at this week’s inaugural events and that there will be crowds “rarely seen before.” “Many of the celebrities that are saying they’re not going — they were never invited,” Mr. Trump said in an interview that aired Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.” “I don’t want the celebrities — I want the people.” “And we have the biggest celebrities in the world there —...

    Waitress Kelly Carter said a couple had written on the receipt: "Great service don't tip black people." Owner Tommy Tellez told BBC News the response has been "phenomenal". People have been dropping by the restaurant to give Ms Carter cash, Mr Tellez said, and a YouCaring campaign has raised over $300 (Ł245) for her. Her regular customers have been dropping by to give her hugs. Tipping is customary in the US, where restaurant servers often earn less than the minimum wage, with tips supposed to make up the difference in pay. The white couple who left the note appeared to...

    The losers are angry... If you were arranging publications based on their political content, any given issue of GQ Magazine would sit comfortably to the left of Marx & Engels. GQ is to sane political discourse what a pack of rabid pit bulls is to a steak. After all, this is the rag that keeps Keith Olbermann locked in a basement closet, where a food pellet drops each time he records one of his insane rants for YouTube. That means they have a nasty habit of letting the mask slip and sharing their insane feelings. In a year where the...
  • Are Christians and Jews Safer with Muslims than Agnostics and Atheists?

    The question isn't easy to answer in the current climate of marked instability. In past ages, Muslim conquerors were very brutal against Christian kingdoms, but conquered peoples of the book, Christians and Jews, were somewhat safer as long as they paid the jizya tax and accepted second class status.The question is, are Muslims more intolerant of secular people, who are typically out-of-control sexually, and except for fear, generally despise religious people.

    American Thinker ^ | December 7, 2016 | Sha'i ben-Tekoa
    Yes, it is good that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, especially in light of revelations of her private email security breaches and pay-for-play administration of the State Department. If true, she belongs in prison. However, what is ominous is the number of voters who, despite all that was known of her crimes, still voted for her. This is not a sign of a healthy American electorate. It seems the same citizens who voted for Barack Obama in 2012 after his disastrous first four years voted for her. Many people who go the polls in our generation are simply not thinking....

    Regardless of who wins the election in November, here are 10 things that I think he or she should keep in mind: --The old media rules do not apply. Do we still have to emphasize this in an era of smartphones, Facebook and Twitter? You do not control the media, and the media does not control the message. Oh, I know that the Obama administration has made media manipulation an art form -- and that the media has been more than happy to comply. But everyone is the media now. We found out about Hillary Clinton's pneumonia because of a...

    The Washington Post ^ | August 30, 2016 | John Bicknell
    With the prospect of a President Donald Trump or a President Hillary Clinton on the horizon, the growing trend toward the executive acting without the consent of Congress is troubling to all political stripes. Both parties claim to worry about a strong presidency, at least if the other party is in the White House. That trend has been exacerbated by President Obama, but it certainly didn’t start with him. With the exception of Calvin Coolidge, every president of the 20th and 21st centuries contributed to the problem. Many proposals to address the imperial presidency have been floated over the decades....

    How much do some people hate the idea of a President Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Apparently enough that they'd rather die in an apocalyptic event than see it become a reality. According to the latest survey by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling, 13 percent of people would rather have a giant meteor hit Earth than elect Clinton or Trump. .. The exact question: "If the choices for President were Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump, and a Giant Meteor hitting the earth which would you choose?" About 43 percent opted for Clinton, 38 percent for Trump, 13 percent for...

    At least 24 people are still missing after a collapse at Guatemala City's largest garbage dump this week that killed four people, the city said on Friday. People sifting through the dump, which receives about 500 truckloads of trash every day, were caught unawares on Wednesday when part of the massive heap of garbage caved in, according to authorities in Guatemala City. Four people were killed and 15 were rescued from the mountains of waste with injuries. City spokesman Carlos Sandoval said the 24 missing included seven recycling workers. Others had apparently entered the dump illegally, he said. The search...

"You know the thing I don't like about them?" Giannotti said. "They say, 'We're New York's team. We're New York's team.' No you're not. You're not New York's team. You're Upstate New York's team. You're Central New York's team." "New York City and like Central New York. It's a long way away," he continued. "It's not really this area. People talk differently there. They look differently there.

    I met my new roommates on Craigslist. Two white, one Chinese. Together we represented Portland, Florida, China and (with me) D.C., and as we moved into our apartment in Bed-Stuy last fall, I was excited for the potential of cross-cultural exchange. We had a get-to-know you powwow on the rooftop. We talked about ourselves, what brought us to New York. It was a warm evening in September, a couple of weeks after Michael Brown was shot, and somewhere in the mix I brought up Ferguson, hoping to spark a “conscious conversation.” Then it happened. The nightmarish response. “What’s happening in...
