    A homeowner stopped by to check on his suburban Atlanta property — only to be arrested for trespassing. Days after the departure of a previous tenant, Tim Arko pulled into the driveway of his house in desirable Decatur, where he suddenly encountered a stranger waving a gun in his face. “I just jumped the fence and ran. I didn’t know what else to do,” Arko told local channel WSB-TV. “I didn’t walk in on a family eating dinner. I walked in on weapons, a prostitute, a bunch of dogs in the back, my fence broken down,” he told a reporter....

    On its website, California wine company Ocean Fathoms praises the waters of the Santa Barbara channel as “the perfect environment” for aging its wines. “[T]he set of special characteristics of the Channel Islands’ environment gives Ocean Fathoms a superior product,” the company claims, before praising the abundant underwater flora and fauna that attach itself to each bottle. In 2017, Ocean Fathoms started to submerge specially designed crates of its wine in the channel, and when the bottles were retrieved 12 months later, they were sold for up to $500 each. The problem — and this is a significant one —...

In 2022, Xcel Energy, Colorado’s largest electricity supplier, filed for a $312 million rate hike, but under the settlement it will get an increase of $96 million. The reduced revenue figure was reached in a settlement between Xcel Energy...

    A tech worker in England tried to sue her former boss after apparently believing email abbreviations he used, such as “xx” and “???,” were codes asking for a sexual relationship. Karina Gasparova, an IT worker at “paperless global trade management” company essDOCS, filed a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against her boss Alexander Goulandris outlining alleged misbehavior dating back to 2019, according to the Independent. A judge threw the case out after an employment tribunal at London Central Court heard Gasparova’s claims. The IT employee claimed that Goulandris’ use of “xx” in emails to her were attempts to kiss her,...
  • The Big Lie about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

    When my daughter was in high school, she sang in the school chorus, a group that included 80 students. After one town-wide performance, a woman wrote to both the school newsletter and the local newspaper, complaining that the chorus was “not sufficiently diverse.” Diversity: Only Blacks Matter In a written reply, my daughter took exception to this view. She conveyed that students of Greek, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and Malaysian ancestry, along with students of European ancestry, including Italian, Hungarian, Austrian, French, and Spanish, were among the chorus members. Oh yeah, the chorus also had 12 African-Americans students and two Hispanic-American...

    Disney lobbied the federal government to change how copyright law works to protect Mickey Mouse, but over at Warner Bros. Discovery, they can’t even be bothered to keep Bugs Bunny on their own streaming service. As of the very end of 2022, 256 Looney Tunes shorts have been removed from HBO Max, covering everything from 1950 to 2004, which is about half of what that the streaming service had when it launched. Older shorts from 1930 to 1940 are still available, but Vulture notes that the deleted cartoons include “What’s Opera, Doc?” (see above), “Rabbit Of Seville,” “Duck Amuck,” and...
  • Jezebel and Mediaite board the Hitler clown car in a poor attempt to smear Dr. Oz

    The Pennsylvania Senate race between Dr. Oz and John Fetterman has officially entered the Godwin’s Law phase as left wing media outlets engage in a bit of manipulative ‘journalism’. Jezebel was seemingly first to the scene with this hit job that states ‘Oz stood in front of one of Hitler’s cars’. That’s a bit of stretch. It appears Oz is actually speaking in front of the Lyon Air Museum’s Douglas DC-3 ‘Flagship Orange County’. Perhaps the greater deception, which was repeated across Twitter by other Democrat propagandist outfits, was the fact that the actual photo from the event does not...

    Joe Biden undoubtedly is the free world's gaffe master at this point. He's able to twist words and mix phrases to distort just about any message. But if he's the gaffe master, Kamala Harris has to be the queen of confusion. With such comments as, "I think that, to be very honest with you, I do believe that we should have rightly believed what we certainly believe that certain issues are just settled." All right, then. TRENDING: Congressional curmudgeons It is The Federalist that has compiled quotes from "girlboss Vice President Kamala Harris" for people to enjoy. "And may it...

    Former Disinformation Governance Board leader Nina Jankowicz is worried Americans face a bleak future after the Department of Homeland Security reportedly “paused” their effort. “The problem is there are very real national security issues here, and not being able to talk about this in a mature way is a real disservice to the country,” Jankowicz told the New York Times in an interview published Wednesday. Jankowicz criticized Republicans and conservative activists after resigning three weeks after she announced her new position as the head of a Disinformation Governance Board on social media.
  • Former Buttigieg campaign adviser called Christine Blasey Ford 'Looney Tunes' in texts to team Cuomo Buttigieg, who publicly championed the Kavanaugh accuser, was being advised by a woman who separately called Ford "the height of Me Too overreach"

    Text messages released as a part of the probe into former New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo show a former top political adviser to then-presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg sharing disparaging sentiments about Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. A text exchange uncovered by Josefa Velásquez, a senior reporter at The City, reveals that Lis Smith – a former senior adviser to Pete Buttigieg, and former girlfriend of disgraced New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer – called Blasey Ford "looney tunes," and "the height of Me Too overreach." While former presidential candidate and...

    Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has defended its decision to donate $55,000 to 37 Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 Presidential election result. Toyota donated more than any other corporate PAC to the politicians who voted against the result - and even gave more than twice as much as the second-biggest donor Cubic Corp. ... The data shows that at least 103 of the 147 members who voted against the election result received donations from corporations including Walmart and Koch Industries. But Toyota is the company who has donated far more than other businesses, with its $55,000 worth of donations...

    Nearly three-dozen corporate PACs have donated at least $5,000 to Republicans who objected to certifying the 2020 election, yet Toyota leads by a substantial margin [a WHOPPING $55,000]. Why it matters: Following Jan. 6, huge segments of corporate America rethought their political-giving programs. The new numbers suggest some large companies have decided to maintain support — even for members of Congress deeply enmeshed in the pro-Trump conspiracy theories that fueled the Capitol attack... **snip** ...What they're saying: "We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification," a Toyota...

    For 14 months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended draconian restrictions on Americans' daily lives to combat COVID-19. The CDC made light of the hardships and economic losses the restrictions inflicted. Call the agency the "Centers for Doubletalk and Confusion." Now, evidence is emerging that the restrictions were based on flimsy science or sheer guesswork. Last week, MIT researchers showed that the CDC's six-foot social distancing rule has no basis in science. If you're indoors, your risk is the same whether an infected person is three feet away from you, or six feet away, or even 60...

    I love Looney Tunes, and I couldn't be less interested in discussing whether Pepe LePew is directly responsible for Andrew Cuomo #MeTooing his staffers or Joe Biden tweaking grade-school nipples. Even for a self-moronized suicide cult like 21st century western civilization, that's too stupid - even more stupid than, say, crediting Yosemite Sam continually shoving dynamite down his pants for our societal death wish. I miss the grand comic spirit of Looney Tunes, and the high artistry they brought to it. So screw the wokesters and let's spend our Saturday movie date with a certain anthropomorphized lagomorph and the other...

    A new report from the Hollywood Reporter confirmed this week that Warner Bros. Studios has axed the character ‘Pepé Le Pew’ from ‘Space Jam’ -an upcoming movie starring NBA superstar LeBron James. “RW blogs are mad bc I said Pepe Le Pew added to rape culture,” wrote one NY Times columnist. “Let’s see. 1. He grabs/kisses a girl/stranger, repeatedly, w/o consent and against her will. 2. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her 3. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.”“News of the character’s absence from the Warner Bros. film broke Sunday...

    Ocasio-Cortez had stated on Twitter: "I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there's common ground but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out. Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren't trying o get me killed." She was assuming that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was responsible for the people who rioted and vandalized the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The riot was the basis for the House vote, without witnesses or evidence, to impeach President Trump a second time. The Houston Chronicle said that if Cruz...

    Lin Wood has been making a lot of accusation against prominent politicians and leaders… and not just regarding the election. We are talking Voter Fraud, Dominion Voting Systems, Jeffrey Epstein, Sex Trafficking, Mike Pence, Chief Justice John Roberts and more. Most are calling him crazy and nothing more than a tin-foil hat conspiracy theorist… but now he claims to have video that proves his wildest accusations. What do we make of this? The accusations being made during this latest Twitter thread are so heinous and corrupt, yet would expose just how morally bankrupt those that run our nation truly are....

    His latest bombshell is either absolutely insane or the key to exposing the powers and principalities ruling this world. Attorney Lin Wood is quickly becoming the most controversial figure on the internet. His Twitter and Parler posts are both wildly popular and ridiculed. The QAnon crowd is torn between whether he’s schizophrenic or crazy like a fox. 4Chan debates about him are just as polarizing. His latest bombshell is either absolutely insane or the key to exposing the powers and principalities ruling this world.

    Hollywood actor and producer Rob Reiner had yet another unhinged rant against President Donald Trump, this time going so far as to compare him to Confederate leader “Jefferson Davis” in this “modern-day Civil War.” Reiner said this during a bizarre rant on MSNBC on Sunday. “Well, this election is going to come down to six or eight states, as you know, Wisconsin being one of them — key battleground state, and we have to win it. We lost it last time, and we have to win it this time,” Reiner said. “You know, Jonathan, you were talking earlier, and you’ve...
