    Al Jazeera is a propaganda machine created by a guy who's literally called Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani. They dupe low IQ underachievers into churning out left-wing propaganda that makes everyone but Muslims look racist and evil and bad. It’s amazing how eager the alt-left is to take their checks. We are so easy to manipulate...

    Former President Barack Obama is hitting the campaign trail in the final days before the midterm elections, stumping for Democratic candidates in critical races in states such as Illinois, Georgia and Florida. Obama has ramped up his campaign appearances in recent weeks. The case Obama is making is somewhat similar to one that President Trump has made in his rallies, on the importance of voting in the midterm elections even though neither man is on the ballot. It's not unusual for former presidents to make campaign appearances after their tenure. But Obama is campaigning against Mr. Trump's agenda and Republican...

    For David Hogg’s next derp, he’s going to get people to boycott Publix. Everone’s favorite store in Florida. For serious. Go tweet someone you know in Florida and keep reading while you wait for a response. Chinless has proved he don’t know much about history with his black arm bad Nazi look. But he really should have copied off valedictorian-contender Kyle Kashuv’s homework when it came to critical thinking. Here’s Hoggy’s equation: Publix supports Adam Putnam for governor + Adam Putnam supports the NRA = Publix obviously supports the NRA. The store must pay for its thought crime. Showing that...

    MILWAUKEE — House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday he thinks President Donald Trump will be an asset to GOP candidates this fall in states like Wisconsin that he narrowly won, even as he warned fellow Republicans that a “blue wave” could wipe out advancements made during his presidency. Ryan addressed about 600 people at the Wisconsin Republican convention, his final one after 20 years in office. The state’s entire GOP congressional delegation, along with Gov. Scott Walker, honored Ryan, who received a standing ovation and chant from the audience of “Thank you, Paul!” Ryan told delegates he was surprised on...

Worse than that, he and his friends have not said a word to me since the shooting, considering my sister died on 2/14 don’t you think it would’ve been loving to reach out...

The father of UCLA freshman basketball player LiAngelo Ball has spent the last week telling the world his son and fellow Bruins Cody Riley and Jalen Hill didn’t really do too much wrong when they were caught shoplifting in three stores during the team’s recent trip to China. They were detained, confined to the country beyond their scheduled departure, released with the help of two presidents, publicly admitted their wrongdoing...
  • 'No Fascist USA!': how hardcore punk fuels the Antifa movement

    “No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist USA!” When Green Day chanted the repurposed lyrics from Texan punk trailblazers MDC’s 1981 song Born to Die during the 2016 American Music Awards, it gave the burgeoning anti-Trump, anti-fascist movement the slogan it needed – and it would soon appear on placards, T-shirts and be chanted by protesters in their thousands in months to come. It was a tiny piece of punk history writ large on American cultural life – but it only gave the merest hint of US hardcore punk’s influence on the current political landscape.

    Skip Bayless and 100,000 signers are calling for a boycott of games this NFL season if Colin Kaepernick isn't signed. Director Spike Lee is planning a pro-Colin rally in front of NFL headquarters on August 24. Kapernick, the seven-year veteran quarterback, caused controversy last year by remaining seated or kneeling during the National Anthem, declaring, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color." He choose to opt out of his contract with San Francisco in March and has remained unemployed since.
