    A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution. Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with...

    Starbucks XXXXXX Charleston, SC 29401 XXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX December 28, 2017 Dear sir/madam: I am writing to describe my experience at Starbucks at XXXXXXXXXXX Charleston, SC 29401, which occurred on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 around 4:15 pm. My friend XXXXXXX and I had finished touring the XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX house, and decided we had enough time to go to Starbucks for a cup of coffee. What happened after we got to Starbucks was both humorous, and at the same time troubling. I ordered the coffee, and XXXXXX excused himself to the restroom. A couple of minutes later, I received a cell phone...

    A hairdresser has been jailed for life after deliberately infecting at least five men with HIV. In the first conviction of its kind in the UK, sadistic Daryll Rowe, 27, was found guilty of unleashing the “cynical campaign” to infect as many men as possible – targeting them through dating apps including Grindr. The sick plot was in “revenge” after he was diagnosed with the potentially killer disease, with the man today jailed for a minimum of 10 years and 253 days. Police had alleged that Rowe, who consistently denied having HIV, had refused treatment. A court previously heard during...

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Ohio) said Thursday that “it’s way too early” to discuss supporting President Trump in 2020. “Chris, you know it’s way too early to be talking about the 2020 - ” Johnson told CNN’s “New Day” when asked if he will support Trump in a 2020 re-election bid. “No, it isn’t not to say that you support the guy who’s president, who’s the head of your party,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back. Johnson argued that 2020 could be a different landscape and pointed to the November’s upcoming midterm elections. “It could be a completely different world...

    President Trump’s campaign for re-election in 2020 raked in $10 million for the first quarter of 2018, bringing the campaign’s total fundraising haul to $28 million, the campaign announced Sunday. Trump’s campaign had $22 million cash on hand by the end of 2017 and spent $3.9 million during the first quarter of 2018, Reuters reported. The president is also working with the Republican National Committee to raise money for GOP congressional candidates for the 2018 midterm elections. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) hauled in a record $85 million in campaign cash in the off-year election cycle ahead of the...

    If the Russians were really trying to blackmail the incoming President of the United States, then why would FBI and Comey himself NOT do everything in their power to protect the incoming POTUS from the blackmail vs. using the blackmail information from the Russians to intimidate and blackmail the President? In other words if the fake paid for dossier by Hillary and the DNC was real, then the FBI and Comey are just as guilty if not more of collusion with the Russians. This is because they have been using it in order to intimate and blackmail the President Trump....

    Dear Demoncrats: If you had a shred of decency, which you don’t. The slightest inkling on the ramifications of these developments and much recent, which you don’t because you’re a liberal blinded by the fury of a failed ideology on it’s last legs and generally not that bright. Brushed up against just once anywhere in the vicinity of truth, but that train left the station long ago, didn’t it. If you took a moment to reflect that most everything you touch turns to ruin, just one instance of clarity ... well, listen to me prattle on about silly time-honored notions...

    Trump is the President, but he didn't give up his constitutional rights when he assumed office. The recent raid on Cohen's office captured files, records and recordings that predated Trump's Presidency, and his campaign. So couldn't Trump, invoking his rights as a citizen, judge shop (as Democrats always do), and sue the FBI for violating his 4th Amendments rights, as well his statutory rights regarding attorney client privilege? And couldn't he sue the Special Counsel's office, and Mueller personally -- for yuge damages? Imagine tying up Mueller personally with serious legal fees. I know this sounds implausible, and I'm sure...

    We’ve been discussing this topic a lot here, so I wanted to post a story and get opinions. True story. Wednesday night a kid, HS junior, sends a Snapchat to his “friends” a picture of himself holding an AR-pattern rifle with a caption “don’t come to school tomorrow”. Cops go to the house. He says it was a joke. He’s suspended and banned from campus. He’s not (so far) arrested. Question is, do you (the cops) leave the rifle or take it?

    President Donald Trump denounced the Washington Post in a Sunday Twitter post, criticizing a story about his chief of staff, General John Kelly. “The Washington Post is far more fiction than fact. Story after story is made up garbage—more like a poorly written novel than good reporting,” Trump wrote on Twitter. The Washington Post reported that Kelly was experiencing a “downward arc” of influence in the White House while Trump was breaking free of his effort to instill more discipline. The story cited sixteen anonymous sources who were inside the White House, outside advisers, and confidants of the president. “Always...

    <p>The number of unarmed citizens (262,000,000*) slaughtered by tyrannical (mostly leftist, Marxist, fascist) governments during the 20th century would come pretty close to wiping out the entire U.S. population.</p> <p>Our founders understood the danger of runaway government power and tyranny, thus the constitution guaranteeing our God-given liberty and severely restricting the powers of government. And they included the 2nd amendment for good reason. An armed citizenry guarantees it stays that way.</p>

    Rudy Giuliani and his wife, Judith, are divorcing after 15 years of marriage, the former New York mayor confirmed first to Page Six. Giuliani, who married Judith in 2003, said, “It is with great sadness I can confirm that Judith and I are divorcing. We hope to do this as amicably as possible, and hope that people will respect the privacy of our children at this time.” Judith on Wednesday filed a contested divorce proceeding in Manhattan Supreme Court, which indicates she’s readying for a fight over their marital assets, which include property in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Fla.

    On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, if you can indulge me a quick soapbox about the political use and abuse of his legacy. I'm not going to argue that MLK was exclusively a man of the right. He wasn't and his legacy isn't. Most of us know of his too close for comfort associations with Communists, as well as the extent to which some of his ideals and rhetoric veered off into leftist territory, particular in his later (and less successful) years. But there is far too much that is valuable about...

The talking rectums never utter the word "illegal".What a bunch of a-holes at Fox.President Trump has nothing against people coming here legally. He's opposed to ILLEGAL immigration.

We know he is a fraud enjoying his expansive free media coverage. Can stop giving him that coverage here. Hopefully he will be gone in a month and we can move on.

    Trump Makes Progressive Democrats Go Left Toward Toward Socialism. Take Trumps putting "Are You a US Citizen" on the next census. The Democrats and their minions scream foul. Yet Trumps move lets us know how many immigrants (non citizens) that we have. How else are we to know so directly. So the Democrats move even further left. Trump say he will use the military to Fund some of the Wall and the same thing happens. Democrats don't care if they go so far left that they don't care about the dead ranchers and the drugs runners pouring across our borders....
