    Gateway Pundit ^ | 8/14/2018 | Cassandra Fairbanks
    Pro-Trump mother and businesswoman, Chele Farley is running for the United States Senate in hopes of replacing Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who she says has embraced a socialist platform. Farley spoke to the Gateway Pundit to explain why supporting her in this race is so important for New Yorkers and our nation. When asked if she will support President Donald Trump from the Senate, Farley explained that she voted for him and thinks that his treatment by certain parts of the media has been very unfair. Farley is also a hardcore advocate for term-limits, so much so that she has personally...

    Not strictly limited to politics, is a website that supposedly attempts to debunk and invalidate urban legends, Internet rumors and other stories of uncertain origin. Today, they are the voice of the statist globalist oligarchy. Of course, others mostly rich country-club Democrats, think otherwise. They point out the mission statement at the website. It is officially an “independent entity” privately owned by its operators. Not for profit? The owners, Barbara and David Mikkelson, have both publicly stated that they receive no funding in any form. Curious. Most curious. This is really, really interesting. You know, it sure is curious...

    Omarosa Manigault Newman is as nationally famous today as that creepy porn lawyer what’s-his-name was just a few days ago. President Donald Trump’s former reality TV show villainess is hotter than a glass blower’s furnace, so hot it hurts your face just to watch her speak. She burns so bright that others are diminished. You can’t even see the recently fired and disgraced FBI senior counterintelligence official Peter Strzok. Also left invisible is demoted Department of Justice layer Bruce Ohr, who’ll testify soon before Congress about the infamous Steele dossier. They are but tiny fireflies compared with Omarosa’s media blaze....
  • Judicial lunacy: New Mexico's accused school shooter-training terrorist let out on bail

    A missing child. A dead body found on a "compound." Eleven starving kids. A police warning about a training camp to train school shooters. A raving maniac of the Islamic fanatic persuasion. And somehow, none of that's quite good enough to hold the creep behind that utterly disturbing picture in jail for trial. Solitary for Paul Manafort for a decades-old crime, sure, but this guy, Sirraj Wahhaj, and all his buddies get let out to go about their business. Here's what the Daily Caller found: A New Mexico state judge ruled Monday that five alleged Muslim extremists accused of training...

    A supermassive black hole has been found at the center of a tiny galaxy, a rare find. What makes the discovery even more unique is that it has been located in an ultracompact dwarf galaxy, stunning researchers. The findings, published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, note that the galaxy Fornax UCD3 is part of a set called ultracompact dwarfs (UCDs), a very rare set of galaxies. "We have discovered a supermassive black hole in the center of Fornax UCD3," said the study's lead author, Anton Afanasiev, in a statement. "The black hole mass is 3.5 million...

  • Vanity - How will alleged multi woman abuser, Democrat, Keith Ellison be treated?

    It will be most interesting to see how the Media and the Democrat Party treat the Vice Chairman of the DNC, now that Keith Ellison is an alleged sex abuser of multi women. It will also be most interesting to see how Ellison is treated if he wins his primary election this evening for Minnesota Attorney General, by his own Democrat Party and the Media. After all, he and Judge Roy Moore are cut from the same cloth...both alleged, sex abusers. It will be fun to watch....stay tuned...folks!!!

    Seattle’s anti-Trump mayor, Jenny Durkan, may be on track for a political backlash: Her city’s $52 million money splash on public transit appears doomed because new taxpayer-funded streetcars apparently won’t fit the existing tracks. Durkan’s office has braced city residents for the possibility, the Seattle Times reported. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) reportedly ordered 10 new streetcars last year, to help expand the Seattle Streetcar system by linking the two existing streetcar lines. But the new streetcars also are reportedly heavier and longer than the ones currently in use, raising concerns about whether they'll be used at all. “It...
  • Kent State University graduate whose photos with AR-10 went viral to host campus gun rally

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Kaitlin Bennett, the Kent State University graduate who gained Internet fame with graduation photos where she posed with an AR-10, will host an open carry rally at the university this fall. Bennett posed with the gun to protest the university's weapons policy. Kent State bans students, staff, faculty and people doing business with the university from carrying "deadly weapons" on its campus, which includes firearms and explosive devices. Since Bennett is no longer a student or person doing business with the university, she is allowed to carry a weapon outside on campus. She will host a rally...

    "The Pond" An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple, and peach trees. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it...

    On Sunday's episode of The $100,000 Pyramid on ABC a contestant made the mistake of mixing up former Taliban leader Osama bin Laden with Barack Obama. The game show, which pairs a contestant with a celebrity as they offer clues based on a topic for their partner to guess, saw the contestant in question, a new father named Evan Kaufman, paired with Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows. As Kaufman's round began, starting with the easiest topics at the bottom of the pyramid, the hint in question was "People Whose Last Name Is Obama." Instead of citing the former president...

    Violence in Chicago over the weekend was about normal for summer — at least 37 people shot — and for that city officials were relieved. The toll was down by more than half from the previous weekend, the city’s most violent in more than two years with at least 74 people hit by gunfire. On Aug. 5, more people were shot in a single day since at least September 2011, when the Tribune began tracking every shooting in Chicago. At least 47 were hit by gunfire, 40 of them during a seven-hour period. The bloodshed brought demands from community leaders...

    A North Carolina woman who is eight months pregnant with twins was humiliated by a police officer who wrongly accused her of shoplifting items under her shirt, according to reports Monday. “[The cop] pretty much jumped the gun without any type of evidence, except my stomach is large,” the shopper, Sherell Bates, told the local TV station WSOC. “That’s not fair. No mom should have to go through that.” Bates was shopping for back-to-school supplies at Staples in Pineville on Friday when the cop stopped her near a checkout line — and asked what was under her shirt, she told...

    LAS VEGAS — Two Boise men were killed in a crash Wednesday near Las Vegas, media partner CBS 2 News reports. The Nevada Highway Patrol told station KSNV a semi-truck driver admitted he fell asleep before a five-vehicle crash on Highway 93. The crash happened just before 6 a.m., Wednesday at an active construction zone. According to highway patrol, the semi was filled with sand, so the driver could not stop in time, running over the car in front of him. The car was ripped in half, split down the middle. The two men inside were pronounced dead at the...

    A restaurant chain is facing a lawsuit regarding a Harlem restaurant staff's refusal to serve a group of transgender woman and a gender nonconforming person. Deja Smith, Daniele Marino, Jonovia Chase, Jahmila Adderley and Valerie Spencer claim they were told the Texas Burgers & Chicken on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 116th Street was out of chicken when they attempted to order there on May 28, but a customer directly behind them had his order taken, according to multiple reports. A video of the discriminatory behavior went viral in May after it was posted to Instagram by "Orange is the...

    A 4-year-old Manchester boy is being called a hero after his grandmother stopped breathing on Tuesday and he called 911. Max Velez is being credited with saving her life, and this week, he was recognized for his actions. “I'm so proud because he's really shy, and I guess he was calm the whole situation,” said Fallon Clarke, Max’s mother. While Clarke was at work, he was home with his grandmother when she had a medical emergency. “Really extreme – she couldn't breathe,” Clarke said. “She couldn't get up, so really, Max handled the whole situation, they said.” Max said he...
