    Conservative street artist Sabo created the phony posters timed for Jenner's appearance during Tucker Carlson's Fox News show in Bill O'Reilly's previous time slot. A conservative street artist has appropriated Stephen King’s story It, only in this version, Caitlyn Jenner is portrayed as the evil clown. The artwork, in the form of posters and fake advertisements, showed up Sunday around the Los Angeles Fox News bureau and Fox studios, timed for Tucker Carlson’s interview of Jenner during his show Monday night — his debut in the time slot previously occupied by Bill O’Reilly. In the faux ads appearing on bus...

    The United Nations chose Saudi Arabia, the country that covers women in black tents, doesn’t allow women to drive nor considers women actual human beings in charge of “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women”.    Makes perfect sense to me.     Via The Daily Caller:   The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women.   It is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.   Saudi Arabia, a...

    (I changed the title because it won't copy) AUSTIN, Texas — Lafayette High School junior pole vaulter Armand "Mondo" Duplantis outdid himself Saturday in the Texas Relays. Competing in the men's pole vault elite, Duplantis cleared the bar at 19 feet, 4Ľ inches to easily take the title and shatter the world junior record by four inches. The mark came three weeks after the 17-year-old Duplantis soared 19-1 at the New Balance Indoor Championships and a little more than a month after going 18-9Ľ for the national high school record at the LSU Last Chance Qualifier. He had a best...
  • Russia's new Arctic Trefoil military base unveiled with virtual tour

    BBC ^ | 4/18/2017 | Unknown
    Visitors to the Russian defence ministry website can now take a "virtual tour" of a new military base in a remote region of the Arctic. Such media openness contrasts markedly with Russia's traditional military secrecy. However, the tour does not show any new military hardware. The Arctic Trefoil permanent base is in Franz Josef Land, a huge ice-covered, desolate archipelago. The Russian military sees the resource-rich Arctic as a key strategic region.

    Older fans know Babylon 5, the game-changing 1994-1998 series, but younger fans may not have had a chance to watch it. Here’s your internet-sized window of opportunity. B5 has come to streaming service Go90. According to showrunner J. Michael Straczynski’s Facebook page, “This is the first time B5 has been streamed online or available in the US for a very long time.” Go90 is offering all five seasons for free, without commercial breaks. I tested it myself, and it looks great. For those who don’t know, B5 popularized the story arc in sci-fi television. (Robotech and other anime beat B5...
  • Aaron Hernandez may have committed murder to cover up a shocking secret

    Aaron Hernandez may have murdered Odin Lloyd to keep his own bisexuality a secret, according a report Friday that also said one of his suicide notes was addressed to a gay jailhouse lover. “One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm,” Newsweek reported. Hernandez’s sexuality had also played a role in the murder for which the disgraced Patriot tight end was serving life without parole in the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center, the report said. Hernandez may have fatally shot his old pal, Odin Lloyd,...

    Activision officially unveiled the next Call of Duty game this morning. Call of Duty: World War II is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the makers of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. That was a good game, and I'm excited to see what Sledgehammer can do with a World War II setting. Prior to Advanced Warfare, the developer had been working on a Vietnam-era game which was ultimately scrapped when Activision promoted the studio to one of its three regular Call of Duty developers. We know nothing about the game at this point beyond the setting and name. A livestream is...
  • Teacher filled Cialis scrip before ‘kidnapping’ teen student

    The Tennessee teacher charged with abducting his 15-year-old student skipped town with Cialis pills and went shopping for KY Jelly and chocolate while on the lam for more than a month, according to new court papers. Tad Cummins, 50, filled a prescription for Cialis at a Columbia, Tenn., pharmacy on March 10 — three days before allegedly blowing town with student Elizabeth Thomas, the federal complaint filed Thursday says. His wife, Jill, told investigators that he was prescribed the drug, which treats erectile dysfunction and prolongs sexual performance. Three days later, the pair was spotted at a Walmart in Guymon,...
  • Honeymoon from Hell: The Liberal Media vs. President Trump (89% negative coverage)

    As President Trump approaches the end of his first 100 days in office, he has received by far the most hostile press treatment of any incoming American president, with the broadcast networks punishing him with coverage that has been 89% negative. The networks largely ignored important national priorities such as jobs and the fight against ISIS, in favor of a news agenda that has been dominated by anti-Trump controversies and which closely matches what would be expected from an opposition party. Eight years ago, the networks’ treatment of President Obama’s first 100 days was very different. Back then, the networks...
  • John McCain lauds FBI Director James Comey: 'His independence has never faltered'

    04/21/2017 7:38:39 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 44 replies
    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is praising FBI Director James Comey for his "independence" while investigating politicians on both sides of the political spectrum and for not kowtowing to political pressure during the 2016 presidential campaign. In a short piece published Thursday honoring him as part of the Time 100 Most Influential People list, the Arizona Republican referred to Comey's "integrity" and argued that it "never wavered" over the past year, despite the presidential campaign that made him a household name. "Integrity is a word that doesn't get used a lot in Washington anymore. But that is the quality that has...

    Fox News took Bill O’Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN’s media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it’s time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy. These same media outlets despised the idea that Donald Trump would drag Bill Clinton’s sexual harassment lawsuits into the presidential campaign. On Jan. 8, 2016, the Times editorial staff sneered: “It is also a tired subject that few Americans want to hear more about. If...

  • Russia court outlaws 'extremist' Jehovah's Witnesses

    BBC ^ | April 20, 2017
    Russia's Supreme Court has accepted the government's request to designate Jehovah's Witnesses as an outlawed religious group, deeming it to be an extremist organisation. The justice ministry argued that the group had distributed pamphlets which incited hatred against other groups. Lawyers representing the group reject the claims and say they will appeal. The denomination says it has 175,000 members in Russia - a country where it was persecuted during the Stalin era. An estimated eight million people worldwide are part of the Christian-based movement, best known for going door-to-door looking for new converts.
