    FORT LEE, Virginia – Garrison and area residents are marveling at the specter of Gen. Ulysses S. Grant urinating on the main gate of this post in what is being called “the Civil War’s first live streaming event.” According to local paranormal investigator Helen “Velma” Martinson, Grant’s ghost began his ethereal number one on the main Fort Lee gate with a shower that lasted over 10 minutes on June 6, the day that the Marine Corps banned Confederate flags. “It was like he’d been holding it for 100 years,” said Martinson. Grant’s ghost has been amazingly vocal. “I got tired...
  • New Rona Song

    05/20/2020 11:23:57 AM PDT · by genetic homophobe · 10 replies
    So I wrote another Rona tune with my buddy Larry Chaney. The first one, Corona Saturday Night, was written 1 week in and we were still digging staying home with our fams. This one, Crampin’’ My Style, was written 8 weeks in, from a different perspective. While filming my small town local park, some criminal dads were practicing baseball with their kids on one of the diamonds. They looked at me suspiciously, probably worried I would report them for illegal family fun behind the yellow tape. Please feel free to share. https://youtu.be/UcPMRFErij8

    Op-ed: "Was a demon enthroned at the Amazon Synod?" During the first press conference of the Amazonian synod Bishop David Martínez De Aguirre Guinea, O.P., one of the special secretaries appointed by Francis, gave a response that lends weight to reports that the shamanistic ritual conducted in the Vatican Gardens was, indeed, the worship of the pagan idol, Pachamama. Bishop Martínez said: "Those who used this symbol wished it to reflect fertility, to women, to life, the life present among the Amazonian people and Amazonia as an entity full of life. I don’t think we need to make connections...

    A woman's daily habit of cleaning her ears with cotton swabs led to a life-threatening infection in her skull, according to news reports. The 37-year-old woman, who is identified only as Jasmine, said she cleaned her ears every night with cotton swabs... But over time, she noticed she had trouble hearing out of her left ear, and finally went to the doctor. She was initially told she had an ear infection, and was given antibiotics. But her hearing problems remained, and she soon noticed blood appearing on the cotton swabs after she cleaned her ears. After a hearing test showed...

    CNN's Reliable Sources, hosted by left-wing "media correspondent" Brian Stelter, is not having a good year -- it's average audience has fallen 42% since January.

That audience size is also about half the number of prostitutes in the United States, which is estimated...

    2017 FBI report Maine: 121 incidents of violent crime per 100,000 residents. Vermont: 165.8 incidents per 100,000.

Violent crime was down slightly nationwide, and it was the second year in a row that New Hampshire’s rate decreased... That disparity has long been the case — without any clear explanation...

    President Donald Trump praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un -- a man who leads a government that outside observers say brutalizes and starves its own citizens -- as someone who "loves his people." Speaking with Voice of America's Greta Van Susteren following his historic summit in Singapore on Tuesday, Trump called Kim "funny" and "smart." "He's got a great personality. He's a funny guy, he's very smart, he's a great negotiator. He loves his people, not that I'm surprised by that," Trump said. "I think that we have the start of an amazing deal. We're going to denuke North...

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson had his favorite liberal Cathy Areu on his show Wednesday to discuss the argument made by one professor that white people who do yoga contribute to white supremacy. Tucker asked, “So if yoga is racist, is hot yoga more racist or less?” Areu responded, “All Western yoga is racist, according to this author, according to this professor. All Western yoga. So yoga that is practiced in India has nothing to do with the yoga that is practiced in the Western world.

    It seems Donald Trump can hardly go anywhere without creating an awkward moment, and his latest has been directed at France’s new First Lady Brigitte Macron. The US president and his wife Melania had just finished a museum tour of Les Invalides with the Macrons, and were saying their parting farewells when Donald approached Brigitte. Looking her up and down, he tells the 63-year-old former teacher that she’s “in such good shape” before turning to her husband and repeating “she’s in such good physical shape… beautiful”.
