    Big deadly fires are nothing new to California, particularly during fire season when the Santa Ana or Diablo winds blow hot and dry, making tinder out of trees and bushes that have been baking all summer long. But the firestorm now raging through Northern California isn’t the typical wildfire. We don’t yet know what started the fires in Northern California, but we have a good idea of what made them so destructive. Authorities blame a combination of factors. Burning fossil fuels is not the only human activity that contributes to the destruction wrought by wildfires and hurricanes. So does the...

Screenshots of the ad went viral on social media after makeup artist and model Naomi Leann Blake posted them to her Facebook page on Friday.

  • Facebook Censors Pro-Gun Video Mocking Weapon Hysteria

    10/05/2017 10:06:25 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 17 replies ^ | 10-5-2017 | David Hookstead
    Facebook censored a pro-gun video of a user mocking the hysteria around how “easy” it allegedly is to convert rifles to automatic fire. The video can be seen here, but can’t be embedded because it “may show graphic violence or gore.” The censored video doesn’t show violence or gore. It shows Facebook user Andy Orlando disassembling a rifle and handgun while joking about converting them to automatic fire. In reality, he made the weapons completely useless. He pulled the slide spring out of his Sig handgun, and removed the bolt carrier group from his AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is 100...

  • 'Stupidly politically correct society is the death of comedy', warns veteran comedian Mel Brooks

    society's "stupidly politically correct" sensibilities will lead to the "death of comedy", the veteran Hollywood comedian Mel Brooks has warned. Brooks, known for his plethora of acclaimed comedy movies, said political correctness was becoming a stranglehold on comedians. "It's not good for comedy. Comedy has to walk a thin line, take risks," he said. "Comedy is the lecherous little elf whispering in the king's ear, always telling the truth about human behaviour." The producer and director said that his iconic western parody Blazing Saddles could not be made in today's political climate.

    I wish I wasn’t the one to bring this tragedy to these vaulted pages amidst the litany of bad news we’ve huddled together against. I’m only the messenger of this giant’s downfall, who no doubt touched us all. Rapper Shawty Lo has died in a car accident in Atlanta. The 40-year-old rapper, born Carlos Walker, was ejected from his vehicle after he crashed into two trees on his way home from an Atlanta strip club. Walker leaves behind 11 children from 10 different mothers. He made headlines in 2013 when the television network Oxygen announced a special about the rapper...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Southern Poverty Law Center has announced it would include prominent American veterans’ organizations American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars in its listing of hate groups, sources confirmed today. In a written statement signed by SPLC President J. Richard Cohen, the organization said both the VFW and Legion were included since many of their members sympathize with radical, extreme-right-wing ideals such as freedom, safety, and family values. “I hate to criminalize a group of decorated war veterans,” Cohen said, from somewhere deep within a fog of pit sweat in his corporate think-tank steam room, where Sen....

    My wife recently came into the house and announced that there were strange looking creatures living in our stock pond. She is from Scotland, so at first, I was concerned that she had gotten into the cooking wine and had seen the Loch Ness Monster again. However, when she described the creatures to me, I realized she was talking about brine shrimp. Of course, every Baby Boomer who grew up in America knows them by their proper name, which is sea monkeys. For those who ever read a comic book in the 60s and 70s, you would have seen the...
  • Much to do about nothing

    08/26/2017 9:16:51 AM PDT · by Trumpnation · 10 replies
    I ask myself: What does one write about when they have nothing to say? An even more prudent question is: Who would want to read it anyway? Well, I suppose if the writer had previously demonstrated the ability to put two or three words together in a coherent fashion, there may be those who would indulge him...or her. Then again, maybe not. Is the subject of nothingness really that disinteresting? Many of us crave the moments we have nothing scheduled to do in exchange for something randomly pleasurable to do. Not all somethings are created equal, you see. It follows...

    The Babylon Bee ^ | 8/25/17 | Staff
    U.S.—In a move designed to improve the accuracy of the name of the movement, a gathering of leaders of the Antifa protest group voted Monday to change its name to just “Fa,” better reflecting its fascist ideas and methods. The new name is short for just “Fascist,” according to the group of often violent protesters. “We were called ‘Antifa,’ but let’s be honest here, we’re using violence to advance our cause, we forcibly suppress those who oppose us, and we’d all be okay with a totalitarian Communist regime,” an Antifa spokesperson clad in all black said in a press conference....
