    I've taken a lot of flack here on FR for the past few weeks claiming that Buttigieg and his former employer McKinsey & Company were CIA. Mark Stein is filling in for Tucker Carlson and just spent the first ten minutes of the show talking about this.

    Canadian comedian Mike Ward has lost his appeal and has been ordered by a Quebec judge to pay $35,000 because of a joke he told about a disabled boy. Ward was ordered to pay $35,000 to Jeremy Gabriel, who suffers from a genetic disorder that causes facial deformity and affects his hearing, due to a joke the comedian told at shows between 2010 and 2013. Two of three judges ruled Mike Ward’s comments regarding Gabriel were not justifiable in a society where freedom of expression is valued. Ward was originally ordered to pay an additional $7,000 to Gabriel’s mother—a fine...

    **SNIP** “I can’t blame Trump for trying to help Sean Spicer,” Hillary began, referring to the president’s public support of his former employee who’s competing for the Season 28 “DWTS” crown. “But if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that these guys really can’t win the popular vote.” “Former White House spokesman Sean Spicer is now on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” Chelsea continued. “It is an improvement on his old job, ‘Dancing Around the Issues.’” After skewering Spicer for his brief and controversial stint as a White House rep, the pair then directed their humor at their favorite political punching...

    Joe Scarborough: he's not just another liberal talking head anymore. Now he's a bona fide Democrat electoral strategist, offering advice on how Dems can rack up a big win in 2020 and defeat President Trump. On today's Morning Joe, Professor Eddie Glaude was beside himself. He told Joe "I don't know what to do," faced with people who listen to Fox News and buy into the "lies" of Republican politicians. Scarborough consoled/explained to Glaude that everyone should vote Democrat to protest all the hate, bigotry, and lies of Trump: [snip] JOE SCARBOROUGH: Do you know what you do? And I...

    A Jewish bookie was at the races playing the ponies and losing his shirt. He noticed a Priest step out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, that horse - a long shot won the race. Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto the track. Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses. The bookie made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse won the...

In reality, there are Muslims, and Islamic jihadis, of all races. But TellMAMA wants to intimidate Britons into believing that anyone who makes a rude quip to a Muslim is a racist, and thus deserving to have the book thrown at him. But that’s all this was: a quip. Say anything you want: the guy was rude, or his joke was tasteless, or whatever. But an arrestable offense? That’s insane....

    It doesn’t get more hypocritical than A-listers jetting in on private planes to bemoan climate change at Google’s private party in Sicily this week. The Gulfstreams, mega-yachts and gas-guzzling Maserati SUVs used to ferry the wokerati around the seaside Google Camp have been spewing out greenhouse gases at the rate of small nations. Former President Barack Obama, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, singer Katy Perry and Prince Harry are said to be among 300 guests invited by Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to their luxurious annual shindig which has been dubbed “Davos by the Sea.” Either they don’t believe climate...
  • Democrats introduce Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United

    Senate Democrats introduced a constitutional amendment on Tuesday to undo the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision. A group of Democrats, led by Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), and progressive activists rallied outside the Supreme Court to unveil the amendment, which faces an unlikely path to being ratified. "Few decisions in the 200 and some odd years of this republic have threatened our democracy like Citizens United. People say they want to get rid of the swamp. Citizens United is the embodiment of the swamp," Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said at the rally. Schumer added that "overturning Citizens United...
  • Green New Deal Is Neither a Joke nor a Hoax, States Physicians for Civil Defense (11.69 years left)

    TUCSON, Ariz., May 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Green New Deal proponent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) now reportedly says that her Apocalypse Now prediction—that the world will end in 12 years—was a joke, taken seriously only by people with "the intelligence of a sea sponge." And President Donald Trump has called the Green New Deal a hoax. The proposal has not been withdrawn, and is endorsed by leading Democrat Presidential candidates. Schoolchildren are still being terrified about climate change destroying their future. "The Green New Deal is hardly new, and proponents are deadly serious," states its Physicians for Civil Defense president Jane...

    A man was thrown off of a Southwest Airlines flight for a joke about vodka, which was allegedly directed at a surly crew member. As first reported by Fox 40, the unnamed passenger was escorted off the Wednesday flight from Sacramento, Calif., to Austin, Texas, for making a joke after a long delay that made the cabin and crew annoyed and restless.

    In light of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the highest court in this country, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations and others’ must be taken seriously — their stories do have influence. Thus, it is even more important we evaluate what is defined as sexual violence. On March 29, Lucy Flores published an article describing her encounter with Biden: “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head.” In response to Flores’ piece, Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, tweeted that his actions were “disrespectful and inexcusable,” emphasizing that Flores’ experience was worth bringing...

This is a homophobic and transphobic document.)”</p>

    CNN’s Erin Burnett and Joan Walsh have slammed President Donald Trump for joking about buying the Clemson University football team burgers rather than having First Lady Melania Trump make “little quick salads.” “It seems to me like the president will not be happy until there is not one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist,” political analyst Walsh said. “He shouldn’t talk about the first lady in that way. We aren’t all here to make salads for men.”

    I am a professor of international political theory at King’s College London and bye-fellow of Pembroke College, Cambridge. I am a fellow of the British Academy and a member of the International Studies Association (ISA). Several years back the ISA voted me the “distinguished scholar of the year.” This year it censured me, not once but twice. I was guilty of saying “ladies lingerie” in a lift, and more disturbingly in their eyes, of writing a conciliatory email to the woman who had overheard me in the lift and filed a complaint. I appealed against this decision, but earlier this...

    Time and Donald Trump do interesting things to a man. They make Al Gore glitter. It’s almost impossible not to be thinking of Gore now, with the words “Florida” and “recount” so prominent in the news, and it’s hard not to credit him with virtues absent in Trump and increasingly rare in politics these days. Grace in defeat, for one. For another: a commitment to democracy greater than a concern for self. Sure, the review of ballots that Gore’s campaign demanded in 2000, as he and George W. Bush waited to see who would get the Sunshine State’s electoral votes...

    Hundreds of baseball memorabilia collectors gathered today at Democrat Headquarters in an attempt to purchase some old artifacts. “We heard that the Democrats had a collection of old bats”, said collector Bill de Baseballio. “Some of them may have pine tar on them because they are kind of slippery, but they’ll clean right up if you take a belt sander to them.” One of the old bats sought after was a Hillary Hickory. It never came close to any balls, but was handy for destroying computer memories. Another old bat that many searched for was the Mad Maxine Waters. There...
