  • NANCY PELOSI NOW DAZED, HISSING IN PIG LATIN ABOUT LOSING TO TRUMP & WHO’S FAULT IT IS

    05/24/2017 12:28:04 AM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 26 replies
    “Talk about Russia undermining our elections. They did it. Thisssss…ssss….” began Nancy Pelosi, and it went downhill from there. Speaking at the hilariously-named Peter J. Peterson financial summit this week, the House minority leader literally seemed to hiss about Russia – a scapegoat which Democrats are still frantically trying to pin their 2016 Presidential election loss on. But then, her embarrassment got worse. Pelosi appeared to believe the NRA – the National Rifle Association – is a department of intelligence in the Federal government. “The uh…director of the FBI or the DNI, the Director of National Intelligence, or the NRA….person...

  • Reporters Fall for Fake Document of Trump Making Absurd Demands in Israel

    Reporters on Monday fell for a fake "White House" document that supposedly showed President Donald Trump making unusual demands of his Israeli hosts during his trip abroad. The Twitter account Rogue White House Senior Advisor on Friday shared what it claimed was Trump's demands ahead of a trip to Israel, including roughly a metric ton of sugary and non-kosher junk food. .. Some elements of the purported demands were obvious jokes. The demand that microwaves remain unplugged was a mocking reference to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway's bizarre comment that the appliance could be used for spying, and the request...

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/19/17 | Jim Hoft
    For months since the election the only topic on the mainstream media (MSM) news outlets has been that President Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton by working in collusion with Russia. This fallacious argument is played around the clock by the MSM and discussed repeatedly ad nauseam by Democrats every chance they get. On Wednesday the headline of the Drudge Report was that Democrats felt they were finally at the place where they could poll test their efforts to impeach President Trump. Democrats can’t do anything without a poll. The Drudge Report’s headline linked to a report from...

    CINCINNATI -- The mayor of Cincinnati has tearfully apologized to city police after his office unwittingly approved a proclamation honoring a man suspected of killing an officer in an ambush. Mayor John Cranley delivered his apology Thursday at the police union hall, saying the proclamation was stamped by a new staffer. He said he also called the officer's widow to apologize. "This was a huge mistake," said Cranley. "It's not done intentionally. It's human error, but the buck stops with me."

    AMESBURY — A recent quality inspection of the $300 million John Greenleaf Whittier Bridge replacement project turned up evidence of substandard work – for the second time – that could push back the project’s estimated late summer/early fall completion date. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation began work to demolish the 62-year-old Interstate 95 bridge over the Merrimack River and replace it with separate northbound and southbound bridges in 2013. While the northbound bridge was completed in 2015, quality inspectors for MassDOT recently found that concrete poured for a pier cap on the southbound bridge by an unnamed contractor did not...

    How like sheep are liberals? Easily led, like lambs to the slaughter. CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert (of ‘cock holster’ infamy) informed his audience Tuesday evening at the taping of the Late Show of the then-breaking news that FBI Director James Comey had just been fired by President Donald Trump. Colbert’s liberal audience erupted in wild cheers at the news that their defeated 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s nemesis (over his handling of Clinton’s email investigation) was finally dealt justice. A stunned Colbert rebuked the audience, waving a shaming finger at them and saying, “Huge, huge Donald Trump fans...

    Working for Barack Obama can be a career maker, but Hebrew readers have been puzzled by the explanation for the path that one former staffer took. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Michael Slaby, whom the newspaper described as “among the key tech gurus for Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns,” has founded a startup called Timshel that helps not-for-profits and activist groups use digital tools to increase their analytic capabilities. Sounds good. But where, exactly, does the name Timshel come from? “It’s a reference to [Steinbeck’s] ‘East of Eden’ — the Hebrew word for “Thou mayest” from the Bible [in the...
  • Seattle Mayor Taxes Diet Soda Because ‘Affluent White People Drink More Of It’

    Via The Seattle Times: Mayor Ed Murray’s soda-tax legislation led to criticism it was unfair because white and affluent people tend to drink more diet drinks. The mayor’s revised proposal lowers the tax rate slightly and adds diet soda. The changes were recommendations that emerged when staff from the mayor’s office and the office of Councilmember Tim Burgess studied disparate impacts the tax could have on people with low incomes and on people of color, according to Murray. That work involved conversations with community advocates, public-health professionals and business owners, according to the mayor. After Murray’s initial announcement, some suggested...

    Recent moves by Ms Le Pen to appeal to a wider audience seem to be working as she has removed herself as the leader of the Front National party, and rebranded her campaign with the new motto “Choose France”. Pollster Harris Interactive, who correctly predicted the result of the first round, revealed a six points slip by Mr Macron since last Sunday. Ms Le Pen said: “The country Mr Macron wants is no longer France; it's a space, a wasteland, a trading room where there are only consumers and producers.” The latest polls were conducted prior to the announcement that...

    A 53-year-old man stole a knife from a Lowe's Home Improvement Center, then died after he impaled himself on it as he ran from the store, the Plant City Police Department said. Police said they received a call about 6:40 p.m. about a shoplifting in progress. Store officials told them a white male subject -- identified as Jerry Ellis Word, 53 of Lakeland -- had entered the store, 2801 James L. Redman Parkway, removed a knife from its packaging, then hid it on his person. Word then left the store without paying for it. When he was confronted by store...

    It was supposed to be a visual celebration but an official poster to mark the 68th anniversary of the Chinese navy has instead been a massive Photoshop fail for the Ministry of National Defence. The poster of the Liaoning, the country’s first aircraft carrier, was produced by the ministry and shared on its official microblog on Sunday. It pictured the carrier sailing the ocean waves with a flotilla and under a bright blue sky, declaring: “Happy birthday, People’s Liberation Army Navy!” But online commenters were quick to point out that instead of a Chinese jet crowning the vessel’s deck, the...

    Israel’s Opposition Labor party announced Wednesday that it is postponing its internal elections because the date clashed with a Britney Spears concert. The party explained that the concert would lead to traffic congestion in the Tel Aviv area, that it would be difficult to recruit security guards on that day because they would all be going to the concert, and that they would be not be able to hold an election event at one of their preferred venues. Therefore, they decided to postpone the elections by a day. .....

But somehow CNN's Kate Bolduan began to interview the San Francisco Democrat two minutes later, while she was still being interviewed by Matthews. {..snip..}

    Cheerios cereal brand is under fire for sending out billions of potentially disease-spreading seeds in an attempt to help save bees from extinction. The brand recently announced that it would mail out free wildflower seeds as part of its "Save the Bees" campaign. The seeds, once planted, were meant to provide more nectar for the declining bee population. As of Friday, Cheerios had sent out 1.5 billion seeds, according to General Mills, which owns the cereal brand. There's one problem with Cheerios' charitable effort, however: some of the wildflower species included in the packet of seeds can do serious...
  • Democrats Hoped to Hurt Trump, but Raised Suspicions of Obama

    The mainstream media have been doing a victory lap since the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Security Agency (NSA) confirmed on Monday in testimony before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee that President Barack Obama did not wiretap Trump Tower. But that was already known. There was only one new revelation at the hearing, and it was a bombshell: senior Obama administration officials could have known the identities of surveillance targets. One of those targets, retired General Michael Flynn, lost his job after it was revealed that his conversation with the Russian ambassador had been monitored, and that...
