  • Kevin Hart Will Not Negotiate with Terrorists

    If you had told me as recently as a month ago that I'd ever be backing up Kevin Hart, I would've thought you were crazy. I've endured several of his movies because of social obligations, and the only one I really liked was Jumanji, mostly because it was an ensemble comedy and contained a smaller percentage of Kevin Hart than usual. He's one of the reasons I'm eternally grateful for the Mute button. I don't begrudge the man his success, but so far I've been content with aiding his career by staying out of the way. Not everybody is so...
  • Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith Is Tripping All Over Herself and Dems See an Opportunity in Mississippi

    Nearly a year ago, Democrats pulled off an upset in the South against a Republican candidate hobbled by controversy. Now, they’re hoping to duplicate that feat in Mississippi, in the last Senate election of the cycle. Virtually no prognosticator has given the party much of a chance. But this past week, the Republican in the race, Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), has been caught twice making wild and insensitive remarks: the first expressing comfort attending a public hanging; the second openly musing about suppressing Democratic votes. All of which has encouraged the party to rethink whether the long shot Democrat in...
  • Nolte: Daily Beast Spreads Fake News About ‘White Nationalist’ Guest at White House

    The far-left Daily Beast spread the fake news Wednesday that a “white nationalist” had been a guest at the White House. After informing readers that the leader of “a white nationalist group … visited the White House on Wednesday,” the Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng and Will Sommer then claimed he had been a White House guest. According to the Beast’s “three sources,” who are supposedly “familiar with how the Trump White House operates,” readers are told that the only way this white nationalist could have had his picture taken “directly in front of the White House’s south front” is if...

    A heavyweight right-wing financier has thrown in with a left-right coalition to end the U.S. military’s involvement in the Saudi-led war on Yemen, one of the world’s most devastating humanitarian catastrophes, The Daily Beast has learned. The Charles Koch Institute, bearing the brand of one of the most influential sources of conservative political money, is backing an effort spearheaded by progressive California Democrat Ro Khanna to demand either an end to non-counterterrorism aid to the Yemen war or a direct congressional vote authorizing it. Multiple congressional and allied sources told The Daily Beast they plan to bring their resolution to...
  • Dummies: Daily Beast Calls Attempted Killer a 'Former GOP Candidate,' Not a Leftist Protester

    In the midst of the shock over bombs sent to former Democrat presidents and CNN and all, the Daily Beast boasted this misleading brief: "Former GOP Candidate Arrested for Attempting to Kill With ‘Radioactive Material’." snip Full stop. In Madison, Ryan is known as a lefty pro-pot protester nicknamed "Segway Boy" for taunting Republicans in 2011 when the national media was freaking out over Gov. Scott Walker's "anti-union" legislation and Diane Sawyer compared Walker to an Egyptian dictator. He ran for Paul Ryan's seat several times because perhaps low-information voters might think "oh, another Ryan."

    You could see the protesters gathering outside the Hex on Brett Kavanaugh from the edge of an industrial block in Brooklyn. They could be heard from even farther down the street. The mainly Christian-identifying crowd condemned the group of antifa witches who made headlines this week for planning to conjure misfortune onto the new supreme court justice. The hex was hosted by Catland, an occult shop that sells spiritual literature, healing crystals, tarot cards, burnable incense, and other occult accoutrements.

    Here's a sampling of headlines today from what are generally respected outlets: Buzzfeed: "Taylor Swift's Instagram Post Has Caused A Massive Spike In Voter Registration" Daily Beast: "Taylor Swift: Voter Registration Spike Follows Star’s Political Awakening" Washington Post: "Taylor Swift’s endorsement of Democrats causes spike in voter registrations" Variety: "Taylor Swift’s Political Comments Lead to Spike in Voter Registration" I'd give the Daily Beast a little credit for hedging some, but then there's the lede: "Taylor Swift’s first foray into politics appears to have produced impressive results." All the outlets made the same argument: that, a.) there was an increase in voter...

    The media's last resort is as inevitable as it is hilarious. "The Kremlin’s For Kavanaugh: Russian State Media Back Trump's Supreme Court Nominee" - The Daily Beast Why settle for McCarthyism as a metaphor? Does Moscow have any of the tapes of Kavanaugh's mass rapes? Mueller must investigate, after indicting Mark Judge on a dozen unrelated charges until he turns state's evidence and is willing to parrot back anything Mueller's minions tell him to say. Trump’s disregard for human rights and values is balm to the Kremlin’s sanction-wounded heart, which is why the Russians were quick to jump on the...

    It’s one of this autumn’s pleasant surprises. Two years after Donald Trump’s election as president and 10 years after his own, Barack Obama is gracefully re-entering our consciousness, reminding us of what we have lost and may yet recover. The contrast between Obama and Trump - decent vs. despicable; incisive vs. ignorant; honest vs. humbug; classy vs. clownish - is now the critical subtext of the 2018 campaign. With Obama’s current approval ratings more than 20 points higher than Trump’s, the aching memory of his presidency will help energize Democrats in the midterms. But Obama’s return is also a reminder...

    On Sunday evening, just as The New Yorker revealed the identity of a second woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, attorney Michael Avenatti announced that he, too, had “credible information” about Kavanaugh and his high school friend, Mark Judge. The media-savvy lawyer told The Daily Beast on Monday that his client would be coming forward “in the next 48 hours” with details and accusations that mirrored those already leveled and could, in his estimation, torpedo Kavanaugh’s confirmation—all of which would seem helpful for Democrats as they make the case that Kavanaugh is morally unfit to sit...

    Brett Kavanaugh stands accused of sexually assaulting a high school classmate. And Feinstein seems to have concluded that the public didn’t need to know this. First of all, what in blazes was Dianne Feinstein thinking? It was late July when she got that letter from a female constituent alleging that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. And only this week did she bother to share it with her Democratic Judiciary Committee colleagues? And not only that. According to Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer’s explosive New Yorker piece posted Friday morning, those colleagues got wind of...

    ORTLAND, Oregon—Outfitted in a flak jacket and fighting gloves, Enrique Tarrio was one of dozens of black, Latino, and Asian men who marched alongside white supremacists in Portland on Aug. 4. Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, is president of the Miami chapter of the Proud Boys, who call themselves “Western chauvinists,” and “regularly spout white-nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Last month, prior to the Patriot Prayer rally he attended in Portland, Tarrio was pictured with other far-right activists making a white-power hand sign. Last year, he and other Proud Boys...

    VENICE, Italy—Two years ago, the Venice Film Festival hosted the world premiere of Hacksaw Ridge, a World War II drama directed by Mel Gibson. The film marked Gibson’s first turn behind the camera in a decade, since he’d drunkenly slurred “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world,” pleaded guilty to battering his then-partner Oksana Grigorieva, and was caught on audio saying she was “asking” to be “raped by a pack of n****rs.” Despite never demonstrating much in the way of genuine contrition, he was treated to a prolonged standing ovation on the Lido—the opening salvo of...

    The idea that the U.S. is going to expand its might beyond the globe is a problem for people who believe we live on a disc. President Donald Trump wants a Space Force to expand U.S. military power beyond the globe. That’s a problem for flat earthers who incorrectly believe the world is a flat disc floating through space. On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence announced plans to launch “Space Force,” a sixth branch of the U.S. military by 2020. The proposed branch would be reserved specifically for outer space operations. Military experts say the Air Force currently carries out...

    Omarosa Manigault is no longer at the Trump White House, but she was apparently a trainwreck, she secretly recorded conversations, including in the Situation Room, and has accused President Trump of being mental diminished because of this soda habit. In truth, liberals would eat this up. I’m sure a few are, but the source is Omarosa. That’s the issue. Even liberal outlets, like Slate, along with a host of media figures unfriendly to the president have torched Omarosa’s credibility. Yet, here we are with the racism stuff again. Omarosa has accused Trump of being racistand apparently there’s an infamous tape,...

    China has long avoided entangling itself in direct military conflict abroad. But the Chinese ambassador to Syria last week suggested that China is considering doing just that — in Syria. On August 1, Ambassador Qi Qianjin told the Syrian pro-regime news outlet Al-Watan that China’s “military is willing to participate in some way alongside the Syrian army that's fighting the terrorists in Idlib and in any other part of Syria.” Qi praised the China-Syria military cooperation. The Chinese military attache in Syria, Wong Roy Chang, said that cooperation between the Syrian and Chinese militaries was “ongoing,” adding, “We – China...
