  • Ocasio-Cortez: A New Depth of Stupidity?

    Powerline ^ | November 26, 2018 | John Hinderaker
    Newly-elected Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift to conservatives that keeps on giving. Her ignorance is so profound that it still surprises us, even when we thought we had fully plumbed the depths of her vacuity. This tweet, with Candace Owens’s response, is a classic:

    If you’ve ever wanted to get a really good look at Uranus, then tonight is your best opportunity. Not only is the distant planet at the closest point to Earth in its orbit at the moment, but it’s also particularly easy to locate. The seventh planet from the sun can be found just to the left of the moon in the night sky all this week. The moon is starting to wane after last night’s full moon, but it will still be shining brightly in the sky. Helpful for locating the distant planet. Uranus lies south-west in the constellation of...
  • LMAO: Nuevo Preachy Liberal, Taylor Swift, Isn’t Registered To Vote In TN!

    She’s really ‘committed’ to that new cause of hers, isn’t she? She couldn’t *possibly* have been just pandering to the crowds after the super-heated partisanship of the Kavanaugh hearings, could she? Yes, yes she could. We say that because for all of her ‘impassioned pleas’ for liberal fans to vote against that Tennessee candidate that ‘scares’ her so, she didn’t even register to vote, herself. At least, her name isn’t showing up in the register. Swift reportedly owns two homes in Nashville, Tennessee, both of which are in Davidson County. She also has several other residences in New York, Beverly...

    Why St. Paul Called Some Disciples Stupid Msgr. Charles Pope • October 10, 2018 • The first reading for Thursday’s Mass (27th week of the year) contains St. Paul’s provocative assessment that some of us are stupid.The Greek word used is ἀνόητος (anóētos), which comes from a (without) + noiéō, (to think). Therefore, this refers to not thinking, not reasoning through a matter, being unmindful, or acting in a mindless, dense way. This is rendered in English as “stupid.”There are three reasons that he calls some people stupid:1. They have looked away from the Cross. The text says,O stupid...

    "I'm not a racist person; I never have been," an irritated Cain told Arnold. Actors Tom Arnold and Dean Cain took a feud that began on Twitter and turned it into a real-life heated argument backstage at Larry King’s studio on Tuesday. “I’m not a racist person; I never have been,” an irritated Cain says to Arnold in video obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. Cain, best known for his portrayal of Superman in the Lois & Clark TV series, was challenging Arnold over his Sept. 22 tweet that read: "@RealDeanCain is another @realDonaldTrump loving fake Christian coward which makes Dean...

    CNN is shining a light on three of the “most consequential races” in 2018 — including the Texas bid for U.S. Senate — through debates or town halls in the coming weeks. But Texans won’t get to see incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso face off in this series. “Sen. Ted Cruz (R) declined CNN’s invitation to participate in the town hall,” a CNN statement noted. So O’Rourke will be featured in a live, one-hour town hall with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash in South Texas on Oct. 18....

    The community of Brookhaven just had to bury two police officers who were killed in the line of duty — 31-year-old Corporal Zach Moak and 35-year-old patrolman James White. As the community still mourns the loss of the two officers, the high school football team hosted Forest Hill, and Forest Hill’s band performance at halftime sparked outrage.

Judge Thomas: Senator, I would like to start by saying unequivocally, uncategorically, that I deny each and every single allegation against me today that suggested in any way that I had conversations of a sexual nature or about pornographic material with Anita Hill, that I ever attempted to date her, that I ever had any personal sexual interest in her, or that I in any way ever harassed her. A second, and I think more important point. I think that this today is a...

    Democrats have an endgame in mind when it comes to thwarting Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, revealed as much in an interview this week. Speaking to Politico, Hirono said Senate Democrats will try to keep retired Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat vacant until after the 2020 elections, should Kavanaugh's confirmation ultimately fail.

    Asked why they had quit their office jobs and set off on a biking journey around the world, the young American couple offered a simple explanation: They had grown tired of the meetings and teleconferences, of the time sheets and password changes. “There’s magic out there, in this great big beautiful world,” wrote Jay Austin who, along with his partner, Lauren Geoghegan, gave his two weeks’ notice last year before shipping his bicycle to Africa... Then came Day 369, when the couple was biking in formation with a group of other tourists on a panoramic stretch of road in southwestern...

    he Watergate tapes stand as one of the stunning, implausible twists of American history. Nixon confessed his crimes and recorded himself in the process. Who does that? In their book The Final Days, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein write, “the single thread that linked the problems together was the President’s tapes. The lawyers represented a President who had bugged himself, who had blurted his secrets into hidden microphones. They had not yet heard the tapes, nor seen any transcripts of them. The President would not permit it. They were told to mount a defense, but were not given the information...

    The Saudi Arabian government plans to withdraw all Saudi students studying at Canadian universities, colleges and other schools in retaliation for Canada criticizing the country’s human-rights record. A Saudi government source, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said there are more than 15,000 Saudis here on government-funded scholarships, grants or in trainee programs. Accompanying family members bring the number to 20,000 or more. The Saudi students will be moved immediately to study programs in other countries with similar education systems, such as Britain or the United States, the Saudi official said. Separately, Saudi Arabian Airlines, via the...
  • SamAdams76 Monthly trending of Twitter Follower Growth for 2020 Presidential Candidates - Aug 2018

    This is a monthly posting of Twitter follower growth over the past month. Last Month's post here The purpose of these posts is to track Twitter follower growth for announced presidential candidates on a month over month basis. This is unscientific and is not intended to be taken that seriously. I also understand that some presidential candidates may inflate their twitter following by artificial means. But during the 2016 campaign, the growth trends did seem to correlate to the actual results. All during that campaign, the Twitter growth of Trump was massive compared to the other candidates. Only Hillary and...

    Decades of climate research has established that the Earth is warming and that humans are a significant factor. Largely due to humans adding greenhouses gases to the atmosphere -- through burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and many other agricultural, industrial and human activities -- the rise in temperatures over the past century has been unprecedented. According to researchers at NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 2016 was the warmest year in documented history. In fact, 16 of the 17 warmest years on record have occurred since 2001. By 2050, annual average temperatures are expected to rise in...

    Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. He’s about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed – all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named “Brett.” In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from...
