    U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the congressman known for falsely claiming for years he had evidence of Trump campaign 2016 collusion with Russia and for putting a fabricated Trump phone transcript in the congressional record, has gone off the deep end this time, says talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh. In his opening statement Wednesday in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Schiff charged that the results of elections cannot be trusted and Americans who vote are too stupid to make such decisions."He actually said it. The son of a ... actually said it," Limbaugh told his listeners. Schiff said the Senate...
  • (NBC News) Trump voters motivated by racism may be violating the Constitution. Can they be stopped?

    If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58...
  • World's Dumbest Crooks: Two Men Accused of Gluing Winning Lottery Numbers on Losing Ticket

    From our "People do the stupidest things" file, a story out of Mississippi demonstrates the unlimited capacity of human beings to surprise and amaze us. In this case, our amazement is directed at the incredible stupidity of which people are capable. Two men walked into the Mississippi Lottery Corporation claim center and presented a scratch ticket that they said was worth $100,000. It must have looked pretty fishy because lottery employees immediately called the police. Incredibly, the two men tried to pass off a losing lottery ticket by gluing the winning numbers on to the ticket.

    Freshman Democratic New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argued earlier this month that the United States still does exist as an advanced society. “We’re here to say that what we’re living in right now is not an advanced society,” Ocasio-Cortez declared at a California presidential rally for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. “It is fascism, what we have. What we’re evolving into as well.” Progressives on the left have been harboring doomsday predictions ever since President Donald Trump took office, forecasting the destruction of the American economy and the erosion of civil rights. What the nation has seen since Trump’s inauguration however,...

  • Heroes of the Fourth Turning: A Play about a Growing Populist Divide

    National Review ^ | Nov 2019 | Nora Kenney
    Trump voters in the flyover states are often referred to as “the forgotten” — the men and women whom the media and other presidential candidates failed to understand. An entire cottage industry has materialized around them, intending to “humanize” them, or explain their perspective to a baffled coastal audience. J. D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy, is typically seen as the prototype of this group. But Will Arbery’s riveting off-Broadway play, Heroes of the Fourth Turning, dramatizes an even more obscure group, a forgotten sub-category within “the forgotten” — a group Rod Dreher, whose influence weighs heavily on the play,...

    Actor Anthony Hopkins said he avoids talking publicly about politics because he believes “actors are pretty stupid.”The Oscar-winning star of The Silence of the Lambs and the upcoming Netflix movie The Two Popes spoke in a conversation with fellow actor Brad Pitt for the latest issue of Interview magazine.“People ask me questions about present situations in life, ” Hopkins said.“I say, ‘I don’t know, I’m just an actor. I don’t have any opinions. Actors are pretty stupid. My opinion is not worth anything. There’s no controversy for me, so don’t engage me in it, because I’m not going to participate.'”Unlike many of his Hollywood peers, Hopkins has studiously...
  • WATCH: Biden Lacks Basic Knowledge About Obamacare, Struggles When Confronted

    Daily Wire ^ | 12/7/19 | Ryan Saavedra
    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden showed that he lacked even basic knowledge about Obamacare — which was passed while he served as Vice President in the Obama administration — during an interview with Telemundo, falsely claiming that the law covers illegal aliens. Biden’s lack of knowledge about former President Barack Obama’s so-called signature achievement is concerning considering the fact that the basic facts are laid out on the Obamacare website, which states that the only eligible persons are U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and lawfully present immigrants. The website specifically states: Undocumented immigrants aren’t eligible to buy Marketplace health coverage, or...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sought to move on from questions about impeachment during a televised town hall Thursday night, even as she insisted she wasn't bothered at all by polls showing sagging support for the probe against President Trump. Pelosi, who also claimed former President Bill Clinton was impeached only for "being stupid," made her comments at the CNN event just hours after she appeared at a fiery news conference to direct the House Judiciary Committee to begin drafting articles of impeachment against Trump. "Can we not have any more questions about impeachment?" Pelosi asked at one point. "I don't...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” House Judiciary Committee member Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stated that calling Hunter Biden as a witness is “more of a sideshow.” According to Gohmert, that was because Hunter Biden didn’t hold a government position. Gohmert called for the whistleblower, former NSC employee Abigail Grace, and former NSC employee Sean Misko to be called as witnesses. Host Ed Henry then asked Gohmert about calling Hunter Biden as a witness. Gohmert responded, “That’s more of a sideshow. Because the real corruption is not with Hunter Biden. He wasn’t in a position of —...

    President Trump on Thursday encouraged Ukraine and China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son amid growing concerns over how Trump has used his position to pressure foreign governments to look into his political rivals. “I would think that if they were honest about it they’d start a major investigation into the Bidens,” Trump told reporters at the White House when asked what he wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to do about the Bidens following the July 25 call between the two leaders. The call triggered an intelligence community whistleblower complaint and is at the heart of...

    In a case of wanting justice, a man wiped out his son's inheritance for his quest to win a legal battle. For a $100 speeding ticket, Richard Keedwell spent $30,000. Yes, that amount for a speeding ticket case that could've been solved by paying it. His battle for justice started at what he claims is a speed camera's disfunction, causing it to clock him traveling 35mph in a 30mph zone in Worcester. This took place three years ago and that is how long the court case went on. Instead of paying the speeding ticket, he instead challenged the fine and...

    VIDEO Once again, Kamala Harris has proved herself to be an absolutely HORRIBLE candidate. At a recent New Hampshire campaign even Harris responded to a man in the audience who described President Trump's actions as "mentally retarded" by laughing and saying "Well said!" a couple of times. Later she laughably denied hearing his comments despite her reaction to them. She also went on up on a soapbox and condoned that type of language even though she obviously condoned it with her own response. Note: My running commentary on these clips provides added value thus constituting fair use plus I've...

    Vulnerable spadefoot tadpoles eat their smaller competitors to speed towards toadhood as quickly as possible. Gulls and pelicans are among bird species that eat hatchlings for food or to prevent the spread of disease. In insect species such as the praying mantis or the Australian redback spider, males offer their bodies as a final gift to females after mating. It's more common than you'd think in mammals too. Many rodent mothers may eat some of their young if they're sick, dead, or too numerous to feed. Bears and lions kill and eat the offspring of adult females to make them...

    Edward Mosberg, a Holocaust survivor who extended an invitation to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to tour the concentration camps in Germany with him - the real concentration camps, not the ones the socialist freshman congresswoman claimed were at America’s borders - has now shrugged off her refusal and instead called out her “stupidity” and demanded her ouster from Congress. The guy is 93 years old. If anyone would know “stupidity” when he sees it, he would. The background: AOC, in wildly ridiculous comments, called out President Donald Trump’s border detention policies for illegals - essentially the same set in place by...
