  • Predictions on Sen. Ted Cruz's Final Delegate Total Count --- 6 6 6

    May 2, 2016 | Selfie
    As it stands now Sen. Cruz has 550 hard delegates and 15 soft delegates. He will pick up 20 here, and 27 there, and maybe even 100+ delegates. It is highly foreseeable that Ted reaches 666 delegates. Sadly, many are fearful that Ted may be 'locked in' or cursed at 666- the "Mark of the Beast." This can not be Ted's fate for 2016. Republican delegates must be in agreement to raise him above 666. An uncommitted delegate must be persuaded to vote for Ted and carry him beyond 'the mark' to 667.

    Control language and you control thought. That is why progressives have been erasing our language one word at a time, boxing us into an ever smaller corner of what they decide should be permissible. The latest word to be banished is “Eskimo.” The taxpayer-funded thought police at NPR explain that although the word comes from the Ojibwe language, it has a “controversial history.” That is, it could be tainted with Western culture: -People in many parts of the Arctic consider Eskimo a derogatory term because it was widely used by racist, non-native colonizers.- Anything used by the colonizers who brought...

    Most well-known conspiracies are rooted, even if only distantly, in fact: A blurry video, redacted government memos, a tragic real-life occurrence. But one of our absolute favorite conspiracies is one that is rooted in practically nothing, one that is so delightfully bonkers and out there that the idea of people actually believing in it strains belief. Behold: The lizard people! The reptilian conspiracy Lizard people are a common part of multiple folklore traditions and they show up frequently enough in fiction to have become a trope if you’re generous, a cliché if you’re less so.

Chief Executive Mark Thompson raised eyebrows at a gathering of managers on the business and news sides of the newspaper. According to three Wemple sources, “Supervisors who fail to meet upper management’s requirements in recruiting and hiring minority candidates or who fail to seek out minority candidates for promotions face some stern consequences: They’ll be either encouraged to leave or be fired.” …

    John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, is one of the most powerful people in the American political establishment today. He's also the one most likely to talk about UFOs, or as advocates prefer to say these days, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.”(VIDEO-AT-LINK) Podesta's credentials as both a political insider and a UFO advocate are sterling. He was White House chief of staff at the end of President Bill Clinton’s second term and, more recently, a counselor to President Barack Obama. Since 2002, Podesta has openly advocated for the public release of documents concerning UAPs and Area 51. Since...

    Media coverage of Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia typically noted that it reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to gay marriage. Slate’s William Saletan acknowledges the literal truth of that reporting, but suggested in an April 8 article that the document contains seeds that will sprout into Vatican acceptance of same-sex unions, though he admits that process “might take centuries.” Saletan argued that in time, the Church will extend Amoris Laetitia’s treatment of infertile heterosexual couples to same-sex couples: “This double standard, between homosexuality and other forms of infertility, is the cracked pillar at the foundation of the church’s policy against same-sex...

    PHILADELPHIA – Thursday marked the start of “The 17th Annual White Privilege Conference” and this year’s theme is "Let Freedom Ring, Re-Imagining Equality & Social Justice in the United States." The annual event is aimed at promoting the theory of White Privilege – that American society is hopelessly stacked against minorities and the only way to fix the system is for white people to acknowledge their immense "privilege" and repent. "Our vision is to build a community committed to dismantling white privilege, white supremacy and oppression, every day, everywhere," wrote Eddie Moore Jr., founder and president of “The Privilege Institute,”...

    The unofficial Obama Administration motto is "don't do stupid sh_t". Right. Given Hillary's slight lead, and her amazing history of past scandals (more noteworthy than any 20th century President since Warren Harding), what is your best guess for Hillary's most notorious future scandal? This prediction should be based on the fact of her being completely oblivious to the concept of Executive Functioning, kind of the behavioral equivalent of the pre-frontal lobe.

This makes them feel clever, superior, and better than the neanderthals that believe in a higher power. If they actually got their wish, and religion became a thing of the...

    The Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence has a new ad out, and it's incredibly disturbing. In the new ad, a girl portraying Alice from the beloved childhood fairy tale "Alice in Wonderland" comes across a handgun and shoots herself in the face. An actor dressed in a white rabbit costume looks on in horror for added effect. As the young girl shoots herself and creepy music plays, a narrator is heard saying, “Over one-third of all American households have a gun. Ask your neighbor: Is there a gun where they play? Asking saves kids.”

    John Kasich delivered a lofty speech on Tuesday in which he implored voters to reject the dark visions of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, slamming their divisive policies and behavior as “not worthy of the office they are seeking.” The Ohio governor’s speech at the Women's National Republican Club in New York had all the trappings of a presidential affair, with “Hail to the Chief” piped into the room and American flags prominently placed behind him. But the rhetoric and setting was out of step with Kasich’s campaign success to date. He has only won one state so far –...

Smiley did have some criticism for Democrats––they’re taking the black vote for granted––but also said that black people shouldn’t be expected to vote for Republicans running a “segregated campaign.” He said that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have not engaged in minority outreach and let other groups know that their votes matter.

Cruz, who is trailing Donald Trump in the Republican delegate count, made the surprise announcement during a rally in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. “Your average Republican voter may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer,” Cruz said. “But I’m beginning to realize that even Republican voters aren’t stupid enough to vote for a Canadian Latino running on an anti-immigration platform.” The Senator from Texas claimed that he is the kind of leader that the Tories...

    As Republican presidential candidates argued about foreign policy, terrorism, immigration and, of course, the horrors of a Hillary Clinton administration, another politician was sneakily making his move -- and he wasn't even on stage. "America, I'm only getting started," announced President Frank Underwood in a fake, but cleverly timed, campaign ad for his reelection bid. The parody ad, which promotes the launch date of the fourth season of Netflix's "House of Cards," was released with the hashtag #FU2016 during Tuesday night's GOP debate.

    People who pride themselves on rational thinking know there are few feelings worse than being wrong about something, especially something that they made a big noise about at the time. What helps lessen this intellectual humiliation is understanding that, given the information available at the time, the decision was a rational one at the time. The remedy for the initial error is to use the newly available information to reach a more reasoned decision. As the campaign season goes forward, we're learning more about Donald Trump's politics and seeing his initial ebullient puckishness too often give way to self-referential arrogance...

    A school district in Delaware scrambled to apologize Wednesday for accidentally sending parents a humorous "hurt feelings report" sheet that appeared to make light of bullying. The sheet was sent as an email attachment to parents whose children attend Lombardy Elementary School in Wilmington. At first, the document looks almost indistinguishable from the various bureaucratic reporting forms used by the government across the country. But at a closer glance, the irreverent tone of the sheet quickly becomes apparent. The principal purpose of the document is "to assist whiners in documenting hurt feelings." Various fields to fill out include the "whiner’s...

    John Shannon, who lives in Homestead, Florida, was leaving his house on February 11th to go to work. At 5:55AM, the morning sky was still black, and when he looked up he saw an amazing sight. As you can see in the video, it starts out like a beautiful falling meteor shower and then becomes something completely different. Very, very different.

    Usually, a presidential candidate welcomes the endorsement of a group of – shall we say – independent businesswomen, especially if said candidate is Hillary Clinton. However, Clinton, who is locked in a neck and neck race with Bernie Sanders for the Nevada Caucus, may not know what to think about her election being touted by “Hookers 4 Hillary,” a group of sex workers who ply their trade at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel near Carson City, Nevada, and similar establishments, including the Alien Cat House located near Area 51.

    Picture courtesy 12news.com A house fire in Gilbert, Arizona, appears to be a rare case of a reloading accident getting out of hand.  No one has determined the cause of the accident.  I hope that smoking was not involved.  One of the things forbidden to reloaders is to smoke while engaged in the hobby.  The reloader suffered burns to his face and upper body.  That is likely why the fire got out of hand.  It would not have taken much to get the three vehicles out of the garage.  Their loss was certainly a substantial percentage of the total...

    Running into lots of conservatives concerned media giving Trump a pass and not vetting him, just reporting everything he says and acting as his press agent. There's a reason for this: Trump as the nominee accomplishes their two main objectives. RatingsThe destruction of the Reagan Coalition But fear not, my young padawans, I bring you glad tidings of great joy this morning. Because if a real vetting of Trump-World madness is what you want, rest assured starting the morning after he gives his rambling, incoherent acceptance speech at the convention the vetting will begin. Some things you may learn later...

    It was 2013 and I was road tripping out in the American south west. I was lucky enough to get a car with Sirius satellite radio which meant even in the most remote locales of the country I was able to listen to pretty much whatever I wanted. So there I was, in Canyonlands National Park, far far away from the only civilization in Moab, when a hilarious comedian by the name of Amy Schumer came on the air. She was funny. She was hilarious. She made my trip all that much enjoyable. And I took a note in my...

    February 15, 2016 Bernie Sanders a Bum Who Didn't Earn His First Steady Paycheck Until Age 40 Then Wormed His Way Into Politics by Jim HoftWhat a shock. Bernie Sanders was a bum who didn't earn a steady paycheck until he was 40 years old. He was a slob who lived in a shack with a dirt floor. He later wrote about masturbation and rape for left-wing rags for $50 a story. The Socialist then wormed his way into politics. Bernie had his electricity cut off a lot so he'd run an extension cord down to the basement. He couldn't...
