    Quislings: At the same time our president springs dangerous terrorists from prison, he has quietly promoted an Islamic cleric who has issued fatwas calling for the death of U.S. troops with "child bombs." The State Department last week had to apologize for singing the praises of the creep — Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah — in a Tweeted message promoting his Muslim Brotherhood organization. But officials there are only sorry they got caught. The same bunch last year issued a visa for the radical cleric so he could visit, of all places, the White House. That's right, the administration knew full...

    Indonesia's military chief says Australia has apologised over "offensive" training materials used at an army base in Perth. General Gatot Nurmantyo accepted the apology from the chief of Australia's army, the Indonesian military said. Indonesia last month said it had put all defence co-operation on hold, before clarifying the suspension was for one language-training programme. The nation said the materials referenced several sensitive topics. They were "soldiers in the past, East Timor, Papuan independence and 'Pancasila'", a reference to Indonesia's founding philosophy, Gen Nurmantyo said last month.

Specifically, the segment dealt with the casting of mixed actress Zendaya as the reimagined Mary Jane in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. As the Inquisitr reported, many fans were up in arms...

    Every satire has a ring of truth... If not for Jamaican Usain Bolt, the United States would've walked home with every gold medal that wasn't nailed down in Rio. USA doubled the score against the rest of the world in nearly every event save for ping-pong. Isn't that great, Mr. President? We've trounced them fair and square. USA doubled the score against the rest of the world in nearly every event save for ping-pong (and that's not satire). "Micro aggression is the term we use in Liberal circles. Now I have no choice except to beg the world to forgive...

    Donald Trump says Hillary Clinton must apologize for the "death and destruction" she caused during her tenure as secretary of State. "Her tenure as secretary of State may be regarded as the most disastrous in U.S. history, but yet she is totally without remorse," Trump said Friday at a campaign rally at Dimondale, Mich. "Her failed decisions as secretary of State unleashed ISIS onto the world. But has she ever apologized for the death and destruction she has caused?" Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, called his Democratic rival "indifferent to the suffering she has caused." "She offers no apologies for...

    Speaking today in Charlotte, North Carolina Donald Trump presented a different tone, admitting he had made mistakes at times and said “the wrong thing.” Opening his speech with a discussion of the devastating flooding in Louisiana, Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them and standing with them in these difficult hours.” After a brief discussion of the economy and terrorism, Trump offered a kind of extended apology for some of the statements he has made during the campaign. “I’m not a politician,” Trump said. He continued, “I’ve worked in business, created a...

    Faking regret... You’ll probably know CNN as that network you only watch when you’re trapped in an airport, there’s no wifi, your laptop’s battery is dead, you don’t want to spend money on outdated print media, and you need something to look at while you slurp up your third watered-down Bloody Mary. For you it’s background noise, nothing more. However, there are apparently still people out there who regard it as a source of actual news. We’re not sure who those poor, ill-informed, souls are, but we’ve been assured that, yes, they really do exist. Thanks to CNN’s deceptive editing,...

    For some reason, playing a song in which 50 percent of the lyrics are the exact phrase “smack my bitch up” for an accused domestic abuser didn’t quite sit right with people, leading the Cubs to issue the following formal apology: "The selection of this track showed a lack of judgment and sensitivity to an important issue. We have terminated our relationship with the employee responsible for making the selection and will be implementing stronger controls to review and approve music before public broadcast during our games."
