    Legends of Tomorrow is rewinding the clock to the very early Obama years. TVLine has learned exclusively that the time-tripping CW drama is revolving an upcoming Season 3 episode around a teenage version of President Barack Obama. Set in the late ’70s when the future No. 44 was a student at Occidental College, the hour is being penned by Keto Shimizu and James Eagan. Casting is currently underway for an actor to play Young Obama. The episode starts shooting in early February and is slated to air in April. This isn’t Legends‘ first time putting the spotlight on a U.S....
  • Star Trek takes PC to new extremes, even for Hollywood

    Those of you (most of you) who haven't been watching the new Star Trek series, Star Trek Discovery, are missing out on a entirely new level of political correctness. The show features a black female protagonist named Michael; her boyfriend, a Klingon disguised as a Muslim-Arab security officer; an obese female cadet who is a genius in all areas of science; and a gay couple, one of whom is black and possibly also hispanic. But that isn't enough for SJWs. They actually worry that the black gay character, who is also hispanic, is not visibly hispanic.

    In the three-plus decades that I have been a professional stand-up comic, the one thing I never worried about was an existential threat to comedy itself. Sure the humorless always have been and always will be among us, but they have usually been on the fringes of society, especially in a free speech-loving republic like the United States of America. Right?
  • ‘Don’t Be Evil’? Google Is Becoming A Police State

    Google employees are creating their own enclave of mandatory wokeness, but they're not content to keep this ideological policing within their own walls. Back in the day, Google famously adopted the corporate motto, “Don’t be evil.” It hasn’t turned out so well. The problem is that their motto didn’t define what constitutes evil, so it left an opening for narrow-minded zealots to commandeer company resources in a witch hunt against whatever they define as the forces of wickedness. That’s what has happened at Google, which has adopted a corporate culture of quasi-totalitarian ideological uniformity that it is now starting to...

    Trump, in a meeting with senators of both parties, referred to Haiti and African nations off-handedly as “s–hole countries,” as first reported by The Washington Post. He did so in context of discussing immigration, while wondering aloud why America should even considering taking in those who don’t offer much by way of benefit to this country’s citizens. “Why do we need more Haitians, take them out,” Trump reportedly said, NBC reported. The firestorm came quick. “@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest s–hole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not,” tweeted Vicente...

    Users of cannabis, cocaine and heroin are victims of discrimination and should no longer be called druggies or junkies, an international drug legalisation pressure group declared yesterday. It called for an end to negative language for drug users and their habits in order to ensure their human rights are respected. As part of the drive to persuade people to think differently about drugs, the words addict and even drug user must be thrown out, a report from the Global Commission on Drug Policy said. It urged newspapers and broadcasters to encourage more positive attitudes by calling a drug user a...

    One of my hopes for the New Year is that more people will find the courage to ignore or even speak up against cultural and moral insanity instead of going along with it. It’s difficult in many circumstances, such as working in a large corporation with “diversity” brainwashing sessions. Not everyone can afford to ask a question and earn an instant pink slip, especially those with dependents. But we don’t have to become cheerleaders for things that violate our beliefs. In Hans Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes, a young boy is the only person brave enough to point out...

    The PC Police are at it again in Finland. This time they’re chasing down a politician who dared to post uncomplimentary things about Islam on the Internet. Here’s the story from Tundra Tabloids: Finland: Police investigate gay politician once again for posting about Islam Sebastian Tynkkynen (FB) is a Finnish politician who has been at the forefront in creating awareness about Islamization in Finland. He had been investigated earlier by a heavily politicized Finnish police department over his Facebook postings in August of 2016, and went to trial almost exactly a year ago today, and was eventually found guilty of...

    Social-justice warriors dominate a leading tech company.Let’s ponder a disturbing question: What if the crisis of free speech on college campuses, with their often extreme intolerance for conservative points of view, represents the high point for free expression in a student’s life? In other words, what if the “real world” is more repressive, more ignorant, and more punitive toward dissenting speech? What if entire corporations adopt the ideologies and norms of the most ruthless campus social-justice warriors, ruining careers and depriving employees of their livelihoods when those employees dissent from the dominant ideology? In other words, what if the rest...

    James Damore, the ex-Google employee fired after writing a memo decrying Google for pushing diversity, is now filing a lawsuit against the company. The class action lawsuit, filed Monday by Damore and another ex-Google employee, alleges that Google discriminates against conservative white men. Or, as put in the lawsuit, their “perceived conservative political views,” their “male gender,” and their “Caucasian race.” The lawsuit gives an alarming glimpse into the runaway progressive culture present at Google. One of the more brazen tidbits the document provides is evidence of a number of Google employees outright endorsing political violence against “Nazis.” Who qualifies...

    Only Intel machines are affected by Meltdown Details have emerged on two major processor security flaws this week, and the industry is scrambling to issue fixes and secure machines for customers. Dubbed “Meltdown” and “Spectre,” the flaws affect nearly every device made in the past 20 years. The Meltdown flaw only affects Intel processors, and researchers have already released proof of concept code that could lead to attacks using Meltdown. The vulnerabilities allow an attacker to compromise the privileged memory of a processor by exploiting the way processes run in parallel. They also allow an attacker to use JavaScript code...

    A year in review of crazy A lot of things happened in 2017 — including a lot of being offended. It was hard to narrow it down, but here — in no particular order — are the eleven most politically correct moments of 2017: 1. It was declared “cultural appropriation” for a white woman to wear hoop earrings. A resident assistant at Pitzer College sent out a campus-wide email declaring that it was unacceptable for white girls to wear hoop earrings — because wearing them was culturally offensive to “the black and brown bodies who typically wear hooped earrings.” This...

    As 2017 draws to a close, I am moved to summarize and comment on President Trump's first year in office. His election was nothing short of an historic phenomenon and he has exceeded my wildest expectations. There are articles out there that list his top 81 accomplishments, but they include things like learning to play the accordion and walking on water. I'll stick to my short list. 1- my favorite. Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accords. Climate change is a corrupt, money-making hoax. Not that the climate doesn't change; it's been changing since the Big Bang, sometimes radically. For ninety-nine...

I am currently the only Jew who wears a kippah at my office every day.

    The FBI agent who wrote a pre-9/11 memo warning about terrorists from Middle Eastern countries training at U.S. flight schools says government officials didn't take action in response to his letter due to concerns about racial profiling. Ken Williams spoke to the Arizona Republic Saturday – his first interview since the now-famous memo was written. "If you look at the world prior to 9-11, we were prevented from doing certain things," he told the paper. "We were victimized by our own restraints." According to the report, Williams said he never blamed supervisors for what has been described as an intelligence...

    In an opinion piece published nearly three years ago by the NY Times Editorial Board, we learned that terminating people of faith from public sector jobs is not only acceptable but demanded if they hold politically incorrect views on LGBT matters. The “tolerant” liberals running the Times shared this little tidbit following the termination of Kelvin Cochran from his position as chief of the Atlanta Fire Department, a position where he was recognized as the 2012 Fire Chief of the Year after declining a Senate-approved appointment by Barack Obama to be FEMA’s US Fire Administrator in 2010. In other words,...
