Trump Turns to McCarthyite Attacks as His Suleimani Story Crumbles

After insisting for almost two weeks that he ordered the assassination of the Iranian general Qassem Suleimani to thwart an imminent Iranian-inspired operation, or operations, that could have killed hundreds of Americans, Donald Trump changed tack on Monday. In a series of statements, he claimed that Suleimani’s history of orchestrating attacks on American soldiers and installations was sufficient to justify his killing, and he also suggested that Democrats who questioned his judgment were giving succor to terrorists. In one of a barrage of Twitter posts on Monday morning, Trump said, “The Fake News Media and their Democrat Partners are working ... Read more

Socialists Humiliated When Capitalist Hospital They Criticized Turns Out to Be Socialist

The Socialist Party of Great Britain doesn’t do much business at the polls these days. After all, up until getting demolished by voters in December, the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn was socialist enough for anyone who cared about these sorts of things, and a whole lot more electable. However, what the Socialist Party lacks in support at the ballot box it makes up for in memes. While its webpage is a mess of 2012-ish proportions, its Twitter account is full of political cartoons and other images you can share with your comrades. Take, for instance, this very scientific diagram showing ... Read more

By Chris RoddaSenior Research DirectorMilitary Religious Freedom Foundation Army & Air Force Exchange Service bottom line to MRFF’s attorneys: “Jesus candy” will no longer be proselytizing our military one piece at a time in military base exchanges. A story that went unexpectedly viral over the holidays among the right-wing and Christian media was that of the “Jesus candy,” and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation’s (MRFF) complaint about it on behalf of multiple dozens of service members at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs who objected to its display and sale in their base exchange. As I previously wrote, and ... Read more

Cops Respond to Call of Woman Screaming ‘Let Me Out.’ Turns Out To Be 40-Year-Old Parrot

It’s important as we go about our daily lives to be aware of what’s going on around us and ready to jump into action if we think someone needs help. That’s exactly what one woman in Lake Worth Beach, Florida, did when she heard screams for help coming from her neighbor’s backyard last week. “Help, let me out!” repeated the voice, over and over. Police were sent to investigate, and when they reached the house in question, resident Jason Sprague was out front working on his wife’s car. The cops probably didn’t know what to expect, but Sprague — as ... Read more

Punk Cruelly Beats Elephant, Beast Turns Around and Sends Him Running

Video out of India shows a villager repeatedly beating an elephant. Unfortunately for the pachyderm’s attacker, this beast turned around and made him regret it. The incident happened Monday in the town of Karanjia, according to the U.K. Daily Mail. Before the attack, the elephant was allegedly browsing through farmers’ crops. Soon, however, villagers began to filter into the field as men started to confront the massive beast. While most were content to shout at the elephant in an apparent attempt to scare it, one man took it to the next level. Armed solely with a stick, he ran up behind ... Read more

After Extended Deployment, the USS Abraham Lincoln Turns Toward Home

More than nine months after embarking on what was supposed to be a seven-month round-the-world deployment, the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln is finally on course for its new home port of San Diego. The ship, which has been operating in and around the Middle East since May, left the region in mid-December and is bound for home. When the carrier left Norfolk, Virginia, on April 1, its crew knew it was in for a deployment that was outside the norm. Not only was it deploying to the Middle East, but it also was switching home ports from the East Coast ... Read more

Turns Out ‘Regretful Trump Voter’ in Swing State Ad Never Even Voted in 2016

An ad running in a state vital for President Donald Trump’s re-election is pushing a lie on unsuspecting voters. Although the ad from American Bridge 21st Century PAC shows Pennsylvanian Mark Graham, a man who claims to have voted for Trump in 2016 and regretted his decision, WJET-TV confirmed that the man never even cast a ballot in that year’s elections. Despite being a total lie, the video is still up and running, accessible by millions of Pennsylvanians who will vote in the upcoming 2020 elections. “I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because I thought he would make a ...

Woman Floored When Billionaire Bill Gates Turns Out To Be Her Secret Santa

People have mixed opinions about the whole “Secret Santa” thing. Without fail, every year, in every office or group that participates, there are two main categories of participants: Those who painstakingly pour out part of their soul to ensure they get their giftee just the right item(s), and those who forget until the last minute and frantically wrap up a neutral item they’ve been gifted in the last few days. Perhaps this is why some people have come to avoid Secret Santa. There’s no guarantee that you will get as thoughtful a gift as you give. But for those who ... Read more

Animator Turns Rediscovered Biden Speech Into Creepy Cartoon

Creepy Joe Biden can’t seem to catch a break. The former vice president’s cringe-worthy past of making gaffes at the most inopportune moments has given conservatives plenty of ammunition during his 2020 presidential run. The latest grenade to hit his campaign has come in the form of a cartoon making fun of downright bizarre remarks he made in 2017 about how kids would rub lotion on his “hairy legs” when he served as a lifeguard at a pool in Wilmington, Delaware, in 1962. The video, which has garnered over 100,000 views, was released Monday on YouTube by an online animator ... Read more
