    'If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big we don’t have to really know anything about other people.' During a townhall meeting in Laos, President Barack Obama called Americans “lazy” multiple times. For one, Obama said Americans’ reluctance to embrace his favored environmental policies is a sign of laziness.
  • Ad Man Donny Deutsch ‘Scared’ Terrorists Will Launch Attacks to Aid Trump

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Will Islamic terrorists launch a major pre-election attack to help elect Donald Trump? That’s the scenario Donny Deutsch floated on today’s Morning Joe. Deutsch is an ad man/Hamptons playboy. His pronouncements on national security and terrorism might thus be taken with a giant grain of salt. But Deutsch was responding to a statement by Wapo’s David Ignatius, a serious student of foreign affairs, who said a major attack could be a “game changer” that would aid Trump. Deutsch said if “the terrorists and the radical Islamists want Trump in there. And if the way Trump gets in there is a...

    Manhattan hedge fund bro Brett Barna allegedly took it upon himself to trash a $20 million mansion with his annual, unfortunately-dubbed #Sprayathon party. There were 1,000 guests in attendance. There were "scores of bikini-clad women and costumed gun-toting midgets," according to the NY Post. Barna apparently name-dropped his boss, billionaire hedge fund manager Louis Bacon, when booking the Airbnb, and implied the event would have something to do with the Robin Hood Foundation. Regardless of what charity the party was purportedly supporting, the property owner said that "the only animals there were the people, a thousand of them." He told...

His funding goal is $25,000, according to the page. DiMassimo was arrested March 12 after he vaulted a stage barrier and rushed to the back of the stage in a hangar near Dayton International Airport in Vandalia, Ohio, a suburb of Dayton. His Go Fund Me page gets political, saying that he rushed the stage “not to...

    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says, current gas prices have gone down and the government is "missing an opportunity" to increase the gas tax. At a press conference in Chicago on Friday Durbin said, "Two weeks ago I paid $1.51 a gallon for gasoline in downstate Illinois. Clearly, the price of gasoline has gone down dramatically, as has the price of a barrel of oil -- which I think is below $30." "I think we're missing an opportunity here -- a 5-cent increase in the federal gas tax can really fund an infrastructure program that can help create new jobs in...

    First Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump at a time she had negative 11% favorables with the GOP. Then she missed the first event of the day following her endorsement. Then she blamed her son being involved in a domestic incident on Barack Obama's treatment of veterans, turning off a lot of veterans in the process by suggesting those who came back from overseas were no longer able to control themselves and were not culpable for their actions. Then she went to a Trump rally the day of the election with tons of undecided voters and started attacking Congressman Steve King,...

    Bill Clinton dismissed Paula Jones in the 1990s as a "floozy" and a "nobody" who was only suing him for sexual harassment in order to have her "moment in the sun," according to an audio diary recorded at the time by one of his closest confidantes. Clinton's friend and biographer, Taylor Branch, took notes on a late-night conversation he had with the president on Oct. 2, 1997, and immediately recorded them into an audio diary. The recordings were recently obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. According to Branch's diary, Clinton discussed the pending sexual harassment lawsuit brought against him by...

Beck, who hasn’t been shy in his opposition to the Republican frontrunner, said Tuesday that any Tea Partiers who jumped on the Trump bandwagon were probably not genuine in their beliefs. “The media’s making this look like Tea Party people,” Beck said, noting the press coverage of Trump’s enormous rally in Dallas. “I don’t think these are Tea Party people who are following him.

How many times must we see this?” Mr. King, who has openly supported banning semiautomatic weapons, tweeted to his 743,000 followers Thursday evening. “Too many closed minds on gun control. Worse, far too many PROUDLY closed minds. Meanwhile, the American shooting gallery remains open,” he wrote. “According to Bloomberg Business, gun deaths will exceed traffic fatalities in America this year. Can’t put a seatbelt on a semi-automatic.”

    Former Gov. Jesse Ventura filed suit Monday against HarperCollins, the New York publisher of the book that a federal jury in St. Paul said had defamed him. In July Ventura won $1.8 million from the estate of Chris Kyle, the late Navy SEAL who wrote the bestselling memoir “American Sniper,” which included a subchapter about an alleged California bar fight between him and a man he called “Scruff Face” and later identified as Ventura. Ventura, who is also a former member of a SEAL unit, successfully argued that the bar fight and disparaging remarks he made against Navy SEALs attributed...

  • Ira Hansen, ousted Assembly speaker, not guilty in trapping case

    11/27/2014 8:28:06 AM PST · by redreno · 3 replies
    Embattled Nevada Assemblyman Ira Hansen was found innocent after facing a misdemeanor charge of illegally setting animal traps. A New River Township Justice Court judge ruled that Hansen was not guilty of a misdemeanor when he set four animal traps known as snares within 200 feet of public roadways in Churchill County. The decision caps what’s been a yearlong battle and difficult month for Hansen, a Sparks lawmaker who recently stepped down as the Assembly speaker-elect. In November 2013, the Nevada Department of Wildlife spotted Hansen removing traps that were within the 200-foot limit. The department assembled a case and...

As for Obama, he’s “someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s...

    Todd Harris, the usually gregarious consultant to Sen. Marco Rubio, uncharacteristically resisted eight days of calls and emails seeking his thoughts for this column. When he finally did reply, the answer was: “to be honest, another story about Marco and immigration is not high on Christmas list!!” No wonder. The very issue Rubio (and Harris) thought would be a game-changing, legacy-builder looks like a big liability for the Florida senator, at least right now. In the process, the self-confident presidential hopeful suddenly looks wobbly, even a little weak, as he searches for what’s next. Rubio spent six months working over...

Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming. Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters. “So, you may have a question for me,” Whitehouse said. “Why do you care? Why do you, Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, care if we Republicans run off the climate...

In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning." Kerry said that because of the Bush administration's mistakes, "the job has been made enormously harder." Among the errors cited by the...

In his first bid for office, fresh out of Yale Law School, he lent himself $10,000, nearly a third of his campaign treasury, for the Florida House of Representatives. When he ran for Congress at 35, he invested $350,000. Now 47, and facing his most daunting campaign, he has spent $750,000 of his own money on a U.S. Senate bid, even though he didn't need the cash to stay comfortably ahead of Democratic...
