    Jeb Bush may be top dog in the latest 2016 polls, but he’s woefully behind the rest of the GOP field when it comes to friends, likes and retweets. The former Florida governor took to social media Tuesday to announce that he will “actively explore the possibility of running” for president in 2016, tweeting a link to a statement on his Facebook page. Journalists and political junkies leapt at the news, but Facebook fans … not so much. As of early Tuesday afternoon, hours after Bush’s 10 a.m. announcement, his tweet had amassed 5,700 retweets and 2,200 favorites. On Facebook,...

    An alleged weapons maker for the Islamic State (IS) claimed that a “radioactive device” has been smuggled into an undisclosed location in Europe, according to an intelligence brief released Monday by the SITE Intelligence Group. “A Radioactive Device has entered somewhere in Europe,” according Twitter user Muslim-Al-Britani, who claims to be a freelance jihadist weapons maker now working alongside IS (also known as ISIL or ISIS), according to tweets captured and disseminated by SITE.

    <p>The internet troll army’s selling of the Kremlin’s parallel universe to the Russian people and to a skeptical Western audience is a matter of life and death for the Putin regime. If the Russian people do not buy their story, Putin loses the high “ratings” on which his regime rests. If he cannot convince his Western audience, Europe and the United States will take actions that spoil his Novorossiya ventures and threaten his regime. Trolling is a high stakes business that Putin takes seriously and the West must not underestimate.</p>

    In the battle for Internet attention in the 2016 presidential race, two candidates stand head and shoulders above the others when it comes to social media — but that doesn't necessarily mean they are headed for a win. In fact, on the Republican side, the Internet winner is far down the list of potential GOP candidates for 2016. In the last 10 months, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, have been running neck-and-neck in attention on social media sites, Politico reports. However, despite his Internet popularity, Cruz came in at ninth in a CNN November...

    Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter tonight to defend 20th Century Fox's new movie "Exodus" that casts Christian Bale as Moses, and a variety of white actors as Egyptians. There’s been scuffle on Twitter ever since Murdoch made his observations. And a lot of this stems from a quote director Ridley Scott gave Variety about why he didn’t use Egyptian or Arab actors for the film. He said: "I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such," Scott says. "I'm just...

    Earlier today, it seemed like #BlackStormtrooper might actually eclipse #BlackFriday as a trending topic. That’s because the official trailer that aired Friday for the next film in the Star Wars saga—The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams and scheduled for release in December 2015—opens on a black man wearing a stormtrooper’s uniform. The man, who is played by John Boyega (of Attack the Block), pops into view perspiring and panting hard. He is surrounded by desert: in all likelihood the rolling dunes of Tatooine, the homeworld of both Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. And he appears to be in trouble.

Duncanville Independent School District trustees unanimously voted to terminate Vinita Hegwood's contract. Hegwood, who is black, has apologized for comments made Nov. 7 on her Twitter account that were laced with expletives and derogatory references to whites and blacks. Administrators have called the remarks "reprehensible." [Snip] The school board rejected a resignation and instead fired her with cause.

The show is fictional, but Stanford University psychologist Philip Zimbardo believes there's a lot of reality to it. In a new e-book, "The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Struggle and What We Can Do About It," written with Nikita Duncan, Zimbardo theorizes that all those hours spent in front of a screen — not just watching porn but playing video games too — is leaving men in...

To avoid losing to a candidate who, is a good debater, but a poor campaigner, the President is pulling out all the stops in his desperate quest to hold on to power. Of course, Barack Obama does not want to give up the tremendous perks associated...

    In yesterday's DUFU, we introduced you to a young woman named Lena Dunham, an obscure actress who cut an ad for the Obama campaign called "Your First Time." In the video, Ms. Dunham glowingly compares voting for Barack with being deflowered by him. Unbelievable. And so this thing went viral faster than a herpes outbreak. People couldn't believe Team Obama would actually want voters to see this. But apparently they do. I thought for a while that, because of the widespread (no pun intended) negative reaction, they had pulled the video. But today, at least, the YouTube VIDEO is...

    Lena Dunham, creator of the HBO sitcom "Girls," has stated that the character she plays would view dating a black Republican the same way as dating a Nazi. The show's second season premieres Sunday night, and Dunham's character Hannah has found a new love interest in Donald Glover of NBC's "Community," whose character is a Republican. In an interview with New York Magagazine, Dunham explains what his character's politics mean for her character, Hannah. Why make him a Republican? We liked the idea of a Republican entering their universe. And Hannah doesn’t really have a clear sense of why you...

    <p>American college campuses are the most fertile grounds for fake hate. They're marinated in identity politics and packed with self-indulgent, tenured radicals suspended in the 1960s. In the name of enlightenment and tolerance, these institutions of higher learning breed a corrosive culture of left-wing self-victimization. Take my alma mater, Oberlin College. Please.</p>

    so, basically, every single newspaper and media outlet in America has to correct their reporting on Oberlin.— Greg Pollowitz (@GPollowitz) August 22, 2013 They got it wrong. Big time.Earlier this year, “hate incidents” — including racist, anti-gay graffiti and a blanket-clad student — at Oberlin College prompted canceled classes and soul-searching. Oberlin alumna Lena Dunham was beside herself with grief. What had become of the college’s “beautiful, inclusive and downright revolutionary” character?Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin, also an Oberlin grad, immediately called B.S. As she noted at the time, Oberlin has a shameful history of hate crime hoaxes, and this...
  • Vogue's Lena Dunham airbrush uncovered: Unretouched image reveals exactly HOW MUCH Photoshop..

    Apparently unretouched photographs of Lena Dunham's Vogue shoot have revealed exactly how much the fashion glossy airbrushed the star. The pre-Photoshop images, acquired by Jezebel today, show how the Girls creator's jawline has been narrowed, her waistline slimmed and even smile lines removed. An image of the 27-year-old star seated on the edge of a bathtub in a Dolce & Gabbana dress demonstrates these changes to greatest effect.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)As expected, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham got nude on Saturday Night Live this weekend, in one scene mocking the Genesis Eden story, where a partly blurred-out nude Dunham and leaf-covered co-star Taran Killam poked fun at the biblical narrative. Saturday’s episode earned SNL’s second lowest ratings of the year. "Son of God. Noah," says the narrator. "And now, another extraordinary Biblical film that tells the astonishing story of the Garden of Eden and the Garden of Life itself." Dunham then appears naked. "Adam, Adam, a snake just talked to me. Is that normal?" Dunham says. "Before there were Girls," the...

    Perhaps we'll be seeing less of Lena Dunham on screen in the future: The "Girls" talent says she might consider quitting acting to focus on some of her other work. But don't worry, she's not going far. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," the Golden Globe-winning 27-year-old said in the April issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands March 18. Appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO series about four 20-something women growing...
