    “I’m amazed that Lorne [Michaels] has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—ing believe it,” Chase told the Washington Post. “That means a whole generation of s—heads laughs at the worst f—ing humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s— than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.” It’s not just the current cast that Chase criticized — he hasn’t liked most of the most seasons of “SNL.” “I’d have to say, that after the first two...

    TOOELE, Utah — The owner of a female husky faces a slew of charges after the dog allegedly killed more than two dozen animals in the backyards of at least two Utah homes in just a couple of hours, according to KSTU. Police caught the culprit – a 4-year old husky – and now her owner is facing nearly 30 misdemeanor charges. One of the Tooele residents who lost several animals, Trip Kiss, runs a petting zoo with his wife to teach animal husbandry to children with disabilities. Chickens, ducks, peacocks, a turkey and a tortoise, are just a few...

    Montana Sen. Jon Tester, a red state Democrat running for re-election in one of the closest Senate contests this year, has campaigned as a big hunting proponent, sending out mailers to voters that show him on his farm with his gun in hand. “As we gear up for hunting season, Montanans know that hunting isn’t just a sport – it feeds our families, and it creates lifelong memories with our kids and grandkids,” Tester says in the campaign flier. “Montanans are lucky to have some of the best access, longest seasons and greatest hunting in the world.” But according to...

    A nation gawks as Washington sinks deeper into the muck, but put aside your disgust long enough to digest what we’re seeing. Three big things are on display. First, Democrats are proving again that their force multiplier is a win-or-die zealotry. They were on a mission to kill anybody President Trump chose to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and, within minutes of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer announced he would fight Kavanaugh “with everything I have.” All 10 Dems on the Judiciary Committee pledged to vote no. They looked silly given the nominee’s impeccable credentials,...

    Creepy horror story writer Stephen King promised an electoral horror show for Maine's Republican Senator Susan Collins if she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice. King's prediction came in the form of a tweet he posted on Saturday. This comes as no real surprise since King has a track record of really hating Donald Trump.  First a look at his tweet threat followed by a trip into the dark recesses of King's mind.

    A conservative columnist for The Washington Post compared President Donald Trump’s recent social media comments regarding hurricane fatalities in Puerto Rico last year to Holocaust denial, and accused the president of not caring about the deaths of Latinos and non-voters. Jennifer Rubin, a former writer for conservative outlets including The Weekly Standard and Human Events, excoriated President Trump over the weekend, telling MSNBC on Saturday the president was responsible for the deaths in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria last year. “Donald Trump has killed those people twice: once through neglect and oversight; secondly, disgracing that they died at all.” “If...

    “Are you better off now than you were two years ago?” Republicans should ask voters this key question during the 2018 midterms. It would shift the debate from the childish and shrill Resistance to the mature and optimistic topic of results. By nearly any measure, Washington’s unified Republican government has improved things for every American since the last election. The economy is roaring, thanks to Republican public policy. Obama’s “You didn’t build that,” anti-business hectoring has been replaced by gratitude. For each new federal regulation, 22 asphyxiating rules have been scrapped. And $1.5 trillion in GOP tax cuts have supplied...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | September 14, 2018 | Matthew Vadun
    Republican lawmakers have made it clear they have no intention of repealing Obamacare in the current Congress. Republicans in the nation’s top lawmaking body have never really wanted to get rid of Obamacare. They would prefer to present the program, which David Horowitz correctly describes as “the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes,” as a villain and whip up sentiment against it and run against it every election. They view Obamacare as good for the business of politics. They may chip away at it from time to time or tinker with it at the margins,...

    American Thinker ^ | Sept. 16, 2018 | Clarice Feldman
    Looking back on the week's events, it occurs to me that the Democrats' new theme song should be "Let's Do the Time Warp Again" as they reprise the demagogic lies and smear tactics that once worked for them but are now failing for anyone with a memory longer than a week or two. On the other hand, watching the Russian collusion fizzle, it might be "I'm Waiting for Ships that Never Come In."

    At least 12 people have died in the northern Philippines in the wake of the 560-mile wide Super-Typhoon Mangkhut. Most of them died in landslides or inside houses that got pummelled by the storm's fierce winds and rain. Presidential adviser Francis Tolentino said the dead included an infant and another child who were among four people killed in a landslide in Nueva Vizcaya, one of several provinces battered by the typhoon today. Mr Tolentino also said that at least two other people are missing and the death toll could climb to 16 once other casualty reports are verified.

    A licensed gun owner was hailed Thursday for his role in helping police in suburban Chicago stop a suspect who was firing an automatic weapon, officials said. Officials commended the unnamed civilian for his actions as they stood outside a hospital where Cicero police Officer Luis Duarte, 31, was undergoing surgery for four gunshot wounds suffered during the shootout, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “We were lucky enough to have a citizen on the street there’s who’s a concealed-carry holder, and he’s also engaged in gunfire,” said Cicero police Superintendent Jerry Chlada Jr. Image Gallery 3 PHOTOS Cicero police Officer...

    BRENTWOOD, Long Island — The mother of a teen killed by alleged MS-13 gang members in Brentwood was fatally struck by a vehicle at the site where a memorial service was about to be held for her daughter on Friday, officials confirmed. Evelyn Rodriguez, the mother of Kayla Cuevas, was killed at the same spot on Stahley Street where her daughter was found dead in September 2016. Congressman Peter King says it happened about an hour before a planned memorial service at that location for her daughter. Suffolk County police say they are investigating.

    Do you know what today is? Monday, September 17, is of course a very important and underappreciated occasion which I believe should be a national holiday -- Constitution Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. But it was on this date, September 14, that one of the most important provisions came into being, thanks to George Mason. It was Article V. "The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call...

    A random act of nature unfolded Tuesday when the most regal of American symbols, a bald eagle, perched atop a fire truck during a Twin Cities Sept. 11 ceremony. The unscripted landing added to the moment on the Main Street overpass above Hwy. 10 in Coon Rapids, where firefighters from various departments were paying their annual tribute to those who died 17 years ago in the coordinated terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and to the emergency responders who rushed into harm’s way. “Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” on-the-scene Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich said...
