    HANOI, Vietnam - At a barbershop tucked away in a small Hanoi alley, Le Phuc Hai patiently waits for his hair dye to bleach his natural black into the color of the president of the United States. On a chair next to him, 9-year-old To Gia Huy emerges as a spitting image of a miniature Kim Jong Un...
  • Jussie Smollett may be responsible for the threatening letter mailed to him at 'Empire' studios

    Federal investigators are looking into whether 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett is responsible for a threatening letter that was addressed to him and sent to show's Chicago studio about a week before he was allegedly attacked, according to ABC News. The letter is currently being analyzed in an FBI crime lab, and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is also investigating the situation, according to federal officials. Two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who were persons of interest in the attack, told authorities that Smollett paid them to stage the attack after getting mad that the threatening letter didn't get as...

    On Monday, I asked if there was more hoax to the Jussie Smollett hoax than had yet been asserted. Ola and Abel Osundairo have claimed the three rehearsed the attack before it was acted out on a Chicago street. But what of — I asked — the threatening letter to Jussie, which supposedly served as catalyst for the staged fight (here)? On January 22nd, the Empire actor received a letter featuring a stick figure hanging from a tree, with a gun to his head and a caption reading “You will die, black fag.” As the Monday story went, detectives believe...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this month that the state faces a surprise hole in its budget to the tune of $2.3 billion. The legacy Democrat failed to add that the deficit was caused by oppressive policies that have gutted the population and wealth of New York. Instead, Cuomo conveniently blamed President Trump and the Republican tax cuts for the shortfall. While the new cap on the state and local tax deduction has likely prompted some of the high earners in New York to pack up and move to low tax jurisdictions, it is not tax reform causing the...

He was called among other things: "big Zionist...

Although DUmmieland is a far left site, they purged almost all Bernie supporters from there in 2016 due to the fact that their leader, Skinner, was deep into Clinton Cash.

NASA’s goal is to test out these vehicles on the Moon as early as 2024 and then use them to take people to the lunar surface by 2028

    Someone ought to send Jussie Smollett a gift and a thank you note. He's arguably done more for conservatives than anyone in recent memory. Maybe a MAGA hat and Subway sandwich. Smollett proved beyond any shadow of a doubt who really is biased, who really is racist and who really is full of sh*t. When it was first reported, virtue signalling liberals fell all over themselves expressing their outrage, facts be damned. Kamala Harris threw her two cents into the incident at light speed: https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1090361495119187969Then asked about it as the hoax unraveled, she stutters and stammers "What Tweet?"https://youtu.be/l2-hKqhTNiw  "I think...

    Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) took her opportunity to speak at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing to criticize the rising incomes and increased employment of minorities that has been sparked by Republican policies of less regulation and lower taxes. “GDP is great, unemployment is at an all-time low, African Americans are doing well, Hispanics are doing well, wages are rising at the fastest pace in ten years, blah, blah, blah,” she admitted. “The beneficiaries are only those who are willing to work. There was no boost in income for those unwilling to work. In fact, the lowered unemployment was...

    CBW Chicago ^ | February 18, 2019
    Smollett threat letter called "enormous mistake"; Purported attack location identified; Federal charges "certain" On Friday, Jan. 18th, a letter was dropped into a mailbox in Chicago’s southwest suburbs. The envelope was addressed in childlike scrawl to Empire TV star Jussie Smollett at Cinespace Studios, a West Side production facility that the Fox program calls home. “MAGA”—the acronym for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”—was sloppily written in the return address space. Four days later and about eleven miles away, the letter found its way to Smollett. Something about the envelope must have raised concerns. Smollett would...

    Scott Pelley’s tango dance with McCabe was just more steps in the dance After much media hype and online snippets the prime time CBS News interview of Andrew McCabe finally aired last night 2.17.19. It was a well-choreographed editorial hit-piece masquerading as journalism worthy of study by any legitimate journalism school if any still exist. 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley interviewed McCabe for the show. Pelley handled McCabe with the deference, tenderness, and soulfulness of a dance partner, completely inappropriate for interviewing the disgraced former acting head of the FBI involved in an unprecedented coup attempt against President Donald J....

    The real national emergency is capable of consuming the national boundaries, the national civility, and eventually, the very soul of America. There truly is a National Emergency in 2019! As the nation celebrated Presidents’ Day on Monday, the people are in the midst of sorting out the “National Emergency” that President Donald Trump declared this past Friday. But, despite the various “insights” and numerous concerns over the wisdom of the president’s actions, the real question remains as to whether the United States is facing a national emergency at the southern border or whether it is not. Despite whether the Border...

    In order to get rid of the Liberals, Justin needs to stay right where he is until October Yesterday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s principal secretary, Gerald Butts, resigned. Currently the Liberal government is involved in its worst scandal yet, being accused of trying to get then Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould not to proceed with criminal charges against SNC Lavalin, a company that contributes big time to the Liberal Party of Canada. Butts’ resignation was one of those things, if this makes sense, which was both shocking and not totally unexpected. Butts and Trudeau go way back and have been friends...

She in turn has criticized the FOX2 Detroit for doing a story on the social media commentary about it. Maybe it’s not fair, but hey, that’s the way it goes; if you don’t want people talking about your clothes don’t wear clothes that scream “LOOK AT ME!”My mother always told me that if you wanted to be taken seriously, dress accordingly. Gretchen’s mother must have told her not to hide her talents under a bushel.I only...

    On February 19, 1945, waves of 18, 19 and 20-year-old Marines hit the beaches of Iwo Jima, a heavily defended island held by the Japanese. The importance of taking Iwo Jima and converting it into a major airfield for American bombers, cannot be overestimated. Our planes needed a place to land and be repaired to continue their devastating attacks on Japan; and only courage and blood could secure the landing fields they needed to get the job done. Those young Iwo Jima Marines who are still alive, are great grandfathers now with the youngest survivors being 92 years old. We...

Much to the dismay of the anti gun crowd at that time, they messed up their wording and the law has been unenforceable and in limbo until the dems gained a super majority in the assembly and a majority in the senate plus the gov, lt gov and ag all firmly in dem hands after the (s)election last Nov.
