  • ‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’-- (Francis O'Rourke's Brilliant Poem)

    ‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’ --- This Beto O’Rourke Poem Is Beyond Belief Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry. Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.” “I need a butt-shine,” the poem begins … and it really all just goes downhill...

    A ‘BRITISH’ gunman who is believed to have filmed himself slaughtering Muslims in a New Zealand mosque wrote a chilling manifesto before the “terrorist attack”. The white-supremacist shooter, 28, who was born in Australia, said he wanted to take revenge for the "thousands of European lives lost to terror attacks". He boasted that he chose to use firearms so he could influence politics in the US. “Finally, to create conflict between the two ideologies within the United States on the ownership of firearms in order to further the social, cultural, political and racial divide within the United states," he wrote....
  • Pelosi Hasn’t Taken Impeachment Off the Table!

    RUSH: Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi says that impeaching Donald Trump is “just not worth it.” This was in an interview yesterday with the Washington Post. She said impeachment is so divisive to the country, unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan — bipartisan — I don’t think we should go down that path because it divides the country and he is just not worth it. Now, there could be any number of ways to analyze this and to explain it. One theory is that they think Mueller and their investigations are gonna find something that they can blow...
  • Ocasio-Cortez: State Of America Is 'Garbage,' Reagan Pitted Whites Against Minorities

    Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested during a talk on Saturday that America is "garbage" and that former President Ronald Reagan presented a "racist" vision of the country that "pitted" white working class people against minorities in order "to screw over all working-class Americans." Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks while speaking at the left-leaning South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas. "One perfect example, I think a perfect example of how special interests and the powerful have pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans in order to just screw over all working-class Americans, is Reaganism in...

    At this point in time Captain Marvel is eyeing a $63.5M Friday, including her $20.7M Thursday night haul. That figure is just under Beauty and the Beast‘s first day of $63.77M (which turned around a $174.7M opening, the best ever in March), and under Batman v. Superman‘s Good Friday haul of $81.55M on March 25, 2016 which grossed a 3-day of $166M. Beauty and the Beast reps the top opening for March, followed by BvS, and then The Hunger Games with $152.5M, which it looks like Captain Marvel is beating. Where does this put Captain Marvel stateside? Industry estimates predict...

    Americans are consuming more and more stuff. Now that other countries won’t take our papers and plastics, they’re ending up in the trash. After decades of earnest public-information campaigns, Americans are finally recycling. Airports, malls, schools, and office buildings across the country have bins for plastic bottles and aluminum cans and newspapers. In some cities, you can be fined if inspectors discover you haven’t recycled appropriately. But now, much of that carefully sorted recycling is ending up in the trash. For decades, we were sending the bulk of our recycling to China—tons and tons of it, sent over on ships...

    A Marion, Indiana, man was seriously injured after he accidentally shot himself in the groin with a gun he did not have a license to possess, authorities say. Mark Anthony Jones, 46, was out for a walk early on Feb. 28 with an unholstered Hi-Point 9mm handgun in his waistband when the weapon began to slip from its position, according to a police report. When Jones went to adjust the handgun, he accidentally discharged it, shooting himself in the genitals.

    My girlfriend and I recently found out she is pregnant. I told her I’d support her and the baby, and secretly started saving for an engagement ring. She said she thought I would have wanted her to get an abortion. I didn’t—at least at first. She was excited and started planning the nursery. It took me two months to save up, but I finally got on one knee and popped the question. She cried and said yes. I’m still scared about being a dad, but I’ve got a good job and so does she. We’ll make a great family, just...

    Well, well, well, it appears the hostless Oscars came to play. The 2019 ceremony just delivered what could be an Academy Awards first: An acceptance speech dedicated to none other than menstrual periods! Period. End of Sentence. just won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short. “I’m not crying because I’m on my period, or anything,” said director Rayka Zehtabchi. “I can’t believe a film about menstruation just won an Oscar,” she continued. Zehtabchi (who is 25!!) shared the stage with producer Melissa Berton and the rest of the Period team. Period tells the story of women in rural India fighting...

    Boston Herald ^ | 2/24/19 | MONA CHAREN
    **SNIP** But even supposing the “ultra-rich” would hold still while the state extracted a fixed yearly portion of their net worth, any plan for universal pre-K deserves skepticism — the opposite of what most news stories convey. ABC News, for example, contends, “The benefits of early child care have long been documented, even showing taxpayers can make money back when investing in high-quality early education.” This is tendentious and wrong. The links ABC provided don’t even support its assertion. The first is to a National Education Association publication (hardly a neutral arbiter), citing one famous study of extremely high-quality day...

    Billy Porter isn't playing around on the Oscars red carpet tonight. The Pose star arrived ready to snatch wigs in an actual tuxedo gown by Christian Siriano, which looked worthy of its own Academy Award. The velvety look featured silk lapels, white ruffled sleeves, a black bowtie, and a voluminous ball skirt. To say Porter slayed in the ensemble in an understatement.

    The conscientious citizens of Philadelphia continue to put their pizza boxes, plastic bottles, yoghurt containers and other items into recycling bins. But in the past three months, half of these recyclables have been loaded on to trucks, taken to a hulking incineration facility and burned, according to the city’s government. It’s a situation being replicated across the US as cities struggle to adapt to a recent ban by China on the import of items intended for reuse.

    I previously wrote how Brie Larson is a huge gamble for Disney and Kevin Feige - especially following the failure of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - and now the Captain Marvel movie looks to be in big, big trouble, unfortunately. Back in January, following the NCAA trailer, it was reported that Captain Marvel was projected to have a massive $160 million opening weekend with some estimates even offering $180 million. However, the bad news for Kevin Feige and Captain Marvel is that those projections have now dropped upwards of $80 million (note: article has been updated to reflect million...

    The good news: Congressional negotiators reached a deal late last night to finish the FY2019 budget — and it includes some funding for the border wall. The bad news: Sean Hannity may veto it. The Fox News host called it a “garbage compromise” as he covered Donald Trump’s rally in El Paso last night, and warned that Republicans who support the deal will have to answer to him: “On this new, so-called compromise, I’m getting details,” said Fox News host Sean Hannity, referring to the tentative agreement reached by a bipartisan conference committee that would allocate roughly $1.375 billion...

During his Monday night broadcast, Hannity broke into President Trump’s speech in El Paso, Texas, to criticize the reported deal to avoid a second government shutdown.

    Washington (CNN)Former FBI Director James Comey called Thursday for the removal of Confederate statues in Virginia's capital in the wake of blackface scandals involving top statewide elected officials, in an op-ed for The Washington Post. "Expressing bipartisan horror at blackface photos is essential, but removing the statues would show all of America that Virginia really has changed," Comey writes. "There is no doubt that Virginia's leaders need to be held accountable for their personal history, but every Virginia leader is responsible for the racist symbols that still loom over our lives," Comey writes.
  • Academy Awards Confirms No Oscar Host for Telecast

    The Oscars ceremony will not have an official host this year, an Academy spokesperson confirmed to NBC News. Variety reported earlier that the Oscars will instead recruit stars for various roles in place of "one marquee name to kick things off in a monologue filled with Trump zingers." Comedian Kevin Hart in December stepped down from hosting the Oscars after past homophobic tweets resurfaced. ABC's new entertainment chief says this year's pre-Oscars disarray had an upside.
