  • Chris Cuomo: If Dreamers become CNN hosts, will be “used like a Pińata” by Republicans

    Paging the PC police! On CNN this morning, when Republican congressman Chris Collins light-heartedly suggested that Dreamers should be free to pursue whatever career they like, including “CNN host,” Chris Cuomo responded: “That’s a low bar, Congressman. You should have higher hopes for people than to get into the media, be used as a pińata for guys like you all the time.” View the video here.

    Left-wing Mexican senators celebrated the start of the Christmas season by beating a pińata of U.S. President-Elect Donald J. Trump while chanting “faggot” and other expletives. In this case, the assembled group echoed the chant, “chinga tu madre”, calling for the President-Elect’s mother to be violated sexually. Many senators whistled the insult in lieu of saying the exact words.

    "Let's bring up some people and give them a f—ing stick," frontman Axl Rose said as stagehands helped concertgoers up. "Express yourselves however you feel." Guns N' Roses encouraged fans to destroy a pińata of President-elect Donald Trump during their concert Wednesday night at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes. Frontman Axl Rose and the stage crew invited fans onstage and armed them with sticks and basically let them go to town on the thing, as TMZ points out.

    Mexico City (AFP) - Mexicans have smashed Donald Trump pinatas and torched the Republican White House hopeful's effigy. Now they hope he will crash and burn in Tuesday's US presidential election. The New York billionaire became Mexico's bogeyman ever since he called migrants "rapists" and drug dealers when he launched his campaign last year. "The guy is a clown, a blowhard," said Jafet Granados, an 18-year-old biotechnology student who was standing under Mexico City's Angel of Independence monument. "If he wins, he won't do half of what he has promised."

    Democrats accused Republicans on Tuesday of taking their cues from Donald Trump after the Senate’s No. 2 Republican said President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court should expect to be treated like a “pińata.” Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said Republicans were “acting like big, tough people threatening to destroy the reputation of a Supreme Court nominee they haven’t even met yet.” Reid and other Democrats denounced a comment by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas, who told reporters late Monday that anyone nominated by Obama to the high court “will bear some resemblance to a pińata.” Reid...

    A new food cart in Portland, Oregon, El Diablito, staged its grand opening celebration by featuring dancers and a Donald Trump pinata. A banner on the stage read “El Diablito” which means “the little devil.” Little kids and adults lined up to take turns battering the effigy, which they say they were destroying to “promote peace” and “fight hate.” One little kid screams out “I want to kill him!” when he takes his turn beating the Trump piñata. The food cart owner claimed this wasn’t about politics.

    A video posted online that shows a former union leader in South Carolina smashing a pińata effigy of Gov. Nikki Haley has riled the national office of the AFL-CIO, which wants it taken down. “Do you think we can get this video pulled,” asked a national AFL-CIO official in an email to Palmetto State union sources. The author of the email also worried the video might get “picked up by tea partiers, maybe even Haley herself, to attack labor again.” The video in question features former AFL-CIO of South Carolina president Donna DeWitt smacking a Haley pińata with a baseball...

    Donna, TX -- Parents are angry about their kids being exposed to some X-rated party favors at a busy intersection. They say the topless pińatas at a shop on the corner of Val Verde and Business 83 are inappropriately exposing their children to pornography. The adult party favors are being sold in plain view next to children themed pinatas, such as Batman and Elmo. The topless pinatas sell for around $45 compared to $15 for the cartoon character designs. A worker at the store says the pinatas are big sellers for bachelor parties.

    "…The more terrifying the occasion for defense, the closer will become the organization and the more coercive the influence upon each member of the herd. War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to become—the inexorable arbiter and determinant of men’s business and attitudes and opinions…" -Randolph Bourne Dear...

    Shanghai, China—As the Fourth of July approaches, Shanghai Multi Fortune International Trading Company, LTD, has designed, and will begin to sell its new innovation—a Rush Limbaugh Pińata. With the mainstream media beating Limbaugh to a pulp over the Sonia Sotomayor comments, the designer of the pińata—Chin Kuuk—designed this stroke of brilliance for families to enjoy during the holiday season. At the low cost of $99.99, Americans can own the life-size replica of Rush Limbaugh standing behind the “Golden EIB Microphone.” The pińata, filled with candies of all kinds, also emits the words—“Sotomayor and Obama are racists”—when Limbaugh is hit in...

    Large corporations prefer to use H-1B visas to hire foreign engineers and computer technicians. H-1B workers increased threefold during the Clinton administration, and CEOs are constantly demanding that the number be raised or even unlimited. Large corporations prefer H-1B foreigners because they work for lower wages with fewer rights. A recent study by researchers at top business schools reported that H-1B visas depress wages for software engineers and programmers by as much as 6 percent. The cumulative effect, as described by another study, depresses wages even more. Many U.S. engineers even lost their jobs just after they were required to...

    I experienced a moment of clarity: The Republican coalition can not stand the dominance of the neocons. 1) Communism possessed a powerful military force with numerous nuclear weapons. Radical Islam does not threaten us in the same way. 2) Businessmen do not feel as threatened by Islam. 3) Some in the Republican coalition will worry that Israel is using us. 4) Converting Moslems into our friends is made harder by our Middle Eastern conquests. The Communists were easier to convert by conquest, they rarely held any real love for Communism. Neoconservatives can be a part of the coalition, but they...

    You won't hear executives at MSNBC chanting "yes we can." The network that they cobbled together as a TV version of the left-wing screed Air America is in the ratings dumper. Advertising dollars that have never been easy are getting thinner. Since the inauguration of Barack Obama, Bill O'Reilly and the Fox News Channel have owned prime time -- although O'Reilly has owned prime time for years. One night last week, for example, O'Reilly scored 3.5 million views compared to Olbermann's 1.4 million. Keith Olbermann may need to go back to sports. MSNBC is in big trouble without Bush to...

    Religion is the problem, just like government is the problem. In both cases people have beliefs that don't fit reality. In both cases people try to push their beliefs on other people. In both cases people believe in fairytales that just aren't true. They have no factual support. In both cases people believe "faith" should substitute for facts, like with Obama for instance, and Bush for that matter, and "going to heaven" for instance, and an "ever-burning hell" for that matter. In both cases you can't say what you think. In both cases you have to be "politically correct." In...

    I'm currently of the opinion the disaster that has been president Bush for the last few years (yes, I was a supporter of George till he quit being a conservative) should cause Obamanation to win. I'm all for fighting the war over there. What I'm not for is letting the current congressional majority pass whatever they want and the President not showing any leadership skills with Republicans currently in congress. RINO's like McCain have ruined the party with their descent to moderation from Regan style Republican values. Obama should win this election so the nation can see the real differences...

    An Obama nomination is now in doubt. Hillary has won every large state except Obama's own Illinois. The momentum is all Hillary's. It's time to consider "who" she might pick to beat McCain. Hillary has shown she can now be the "moderate" Dem and even a populist. Obama's fall and McCain's unpopularity with conservatives shows the country does not want a liberal (McCain) or a Socialist (Obama) for President. While she will pull our troops out of that toilet bowl/hellhole called Iraq, she's decidedly for winning in Afghanistan. That's hardly "a leftist" position! She's come out against dl's for illegals....

    Absolut-ely Ridiculous Rick Moran Take a look at this map that Absolut Vodka is using in its latest campaign in Mexico and the US: Now I have an open mind about a lot of things. But somehow, giving California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Oregon, and about 4 other states to Mexico because they don't like a treaty they signed after losing a war 160 years ago seems a little too much in the way of good neighborliness if you ask me. The word is "reconquista." The open borders crowd tells us that this is a myth, that the issue of...
