    [snip] It may come as an unpleasant surprise to the party's supporters, then, to learn that the Democrats' rumored message for the 2018 midterms is the following: "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages." Sweet fancy Moses. That's basically the Papa John's Pizza slogan ("Better ingredients. Better pizza. Papa John's"), but in reverse.

Your reparations came in the form of a man named Barack Obama

    As the Trump-Russia conspiracy express grinds on, a real scandal has been completely covered up by the corrupt mainstream media. That is that several high-ranking officials in the Obama administration conducted extensive domestic surveillance operations against the campaign of then candidate Donald Trump. It was a gross abuse of power as well as a hijacking of the national security apparatus for political means. The surveillance was aided by the “unmasking” of names of American citizens in intelligence reports that were widely distributed to political operatives. One who has been identified as a chief culprit is former Obama National Security Advisor...

    Al Gore: ‘I was wrong’ on Trump By Aida Chavez - 07/18/17 08:56 AM EDT Former Vice President Al Gore says he's given up hope that President Trump will "come to his senses" and act on climate issues. Gore on Monday night told "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert that his hopes about Trump were wrong. "I went to Trump Tower after the election," said Gore, who was on the show to promote his new documentary, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power." "I thought that there was a chance he would come to his senses. But I was wrong." Gore said...

    Ex-president Jimmy Carter was rushed to a Canadian hospital Thursday for dehydration as he was building a new Habitat for Humanity house in Winnipeg, according to a Canadian news network. Carter, 92, was working on the home when he “collapsed,” a volunteer told CBC News. Paramedics and firefighters rushed to help him and an ambulance took him to a hospital. “President Carter has been working hard all week. He was dehydrated working in the hot sun and has been taken offsite for observation. He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building,” a statement from the Carter Center said.

    George Stephanopoulos may be a giant in the news business, but “Good Morning America” has changed its set to cover up his diminutive size. “ ‘GMA’ initially thought using an anchor desk with elevated chairs would help the problem. Still awkward, George’s little-boyish mini-legs were seen dangling.”

    Nevada state officials declared a state of emergency after stores that sell recreational marijuana reported that their supply is running out just less than two weeks after the drug went on sale legally. Gov. Brian Sandoval, R-Nev., issued the state of emergency on Friday, which will allow state officials to decide on new rules that could ease the shortage of marijuana, according to Fox 13 Now. Nevada’s Department of Taxation released a statement that said it will contemplate emergency regulations that would permit liquor wholesalers to cash in on the marijuana sales. “Based on reports of adult-use marijuana sales already...

    Apologies to all my readers: Last week I carelessly wrote about President Trump's Warsaw speech as if the words therein corresponded to the definitions ascribed to them by Oxford, Webster's or any other English dictionary. My mistake. Apparently the plain meaning of the words is entirely irrelevant. Because the words aren't words per se, they're "dog whistles": Trump's white-nationalist dog whistles in Warsaw As James Taranto noted during a previous dog-whistling frenzy: "The thing we adore about these dog-whistle kerfuffles is that the people who react to the whistle always assume it's intended for somebody else," he wrote. "The whole...

  • Girl takes to Twitter to criticize “KKK” sign at baseball game, but there’s one big problem (t)

    A young lady at a baseball game became the time-honored dunce when she complained about the “KKK” sign in the outfield. Atlanta-native Sania Kay was at a Braves baseball game when she noticed the sign in the outfield and tweeted her distaste, writing “definitely NOT ok.” Of course, the Braves’ stadium is not a home of proud white supremacists; instead, what Sania encountered was the “K-Corner.” Almost every stadium has one of them, the so-called “living scorecard” where fans in the outfield keep track of the home pitcher’s strikeouts. Of course, Sania quickly got ridiculed online for her cluelessness. But...

    Donald Trump Jr has continued his attack on CNN by tweeting a meme of his father blowing up the 'fake news' network. Trump Jr's tweet comes less than a week after President Donald Trump tweeted an edited video clip of himself 'beating up' CNN. The president's son re-tweeted a short video that was edited to show Trump shooting and blowing up a missile with CNN's logo superimposed on it. The meme was originally tweeted by @OldRowOfficial on Saturday morning with the caption: 'Hey @CNN we heard you like memes'. Trump Jr re-tweeted the video ten minutes later, saying: 'One of...
