Twitter Is Joining The Evil Autoplay Video Ad Cult

  Twitter is already inserting unsolicited, er “promoted” content into our timelines. Now they’re gonna eat even more of our monthly mobile bandwidth with autoplay video ads. Because what we all want is spurts of useless cruft annoying us at inopportune times, right? It seems like everyone wants to shove autoplaying videos in your face and now Twitter wants to join the ranks of Facebook and Instagram in the fight for your eyeballs. According to Advertising Age, Twitter is now testing video advertisements that automatically play in your feed. The test applies to promoted video ads and hopes to see […]

A Simple Question: What Has She Accomplished?

  Hat/Tip to Thomas Sowell at Right Wing News. A question, beautifully elegant in its simplicity – what has Hillary Clinton actually accomplished? It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards. The simple question was asked by Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News Channel, and it was addressed to two Democrats. He asked what has Hillary Clinton ever accomplished. The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O’Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking […]

“Large And In Charge” Michelle Obama Is Demanding To Weigh Your Toddlers In Daycare

  Who the hell died and put Moochelle in charge of our kid’s snack time? Well, as the saying goes, she’s Large And In Charge. And if your kid is too fat, she wants to know. Bureaucrats from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will weigh and measure children in daycare as part of a study mandated by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. The agency published a notice in the Federal Register on Friday proposing data collection on what meals are served in professional and home daycare facilities and how much physical activity children perform. “Children will […]

After Obama Slobbers All Over The Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls On U.S. Youth To Join Jihad

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]

Poll: Most Americans Want Hope And Change – They Hope The Next President Will Change Obama’s Failures

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Eight years is a long time when it comes to doing damage to this country, and it looks like that same time frame may be short when it comes to fixing all that damage. Some positive news! This does not bode well for Hillary or any Democratic candidate. Now all we need is a good candidate in opposition. Most Americans’ perfect presidential candidate is someone who’s willing to change most of President Barack Obama’s policies, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. More from CNN about the poll results: Three statements generated wide-reaching support. Fifty-nine percent of […]

Left Pushing To Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill With Baby Killer And Genocidal Enviro-Statist

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Hell bring the $2 bill back and put someone with female genitalia on that… There is a new campaign afoot that is tickling the interests of the mainstream media. It is an effort to kick President Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman. Sadly at least three of the candidates do not belong on the list. One is a famous hater of men, another can only be termed a mass murderer, and the third was an important supporter of […]

Woman Raised By Lesbian Couple: ‘I Ached Every Day For A Daddy’

Hat/Tip to Michael W. Chapman at CNSNews.com. Hopefully more brave people like this remarkable lady will speak out so that we can someday, put the myth to bed that the traditional family doesn’t matter. It damn well does. Heather Barwick, who was raised by her mother and her mother’s lesbian partner, wrote in an essay this week that same-sex “marriage” is not the same as normal marriage between a man and a woman, that the traditional family is best, and that while growing up she “ached every day for a dad.” Barwick, who is 31 now, married, and has four […]

Mandatory Voting? An Idea So Dumb Only Obama Could Propose It

You know where they have Mandatory Voting? Cuba. Iran. The old Soviet Union. Obama’s kind of places, for sure. Because the party in power always “wins,” with 99.9% of the “vote.” So it comes as no surprise he’s floating the same compulsion here. They say the only two things that are certain in life are death and taxes. President Barack Obama wants to add one more: voting. Obama floated the idea of mandatory voting in the U.S. while speaking to a civic group in Cleveland on Wednesday. Asked about the influence of money in U.S. elections, Obama digressed into the […]

First Accredited Muslim College In US Will Receive Federal Grants: Affirmative Action?

  Tammy Bruce notes that the first accredited Muslim college, in the U.S., was founded by three “jihadists,” and she asks if Zaytuna College, in where else–wait for it–Berkley, will offer courses in Advanced Stoning. I’m asking if affirmative action will be required, and adhered to? Well, yes it will according to the guidelines of the National Conference of State Legislatures. Any “minority” wanting to study with Jew-haters, male or female (yes, female) may apply, and within whatever the affirmative action guidelines are for schools receiving taxpayer’s dollars, an applicant should have a reasonable expectation of admission. The National Conference of State […]

Annals Of The 47%: Obama Administration Made $125 Billion In ‘Improper’ Payments Last Year

Obama’s minions aren’t very good stewards of the public’s money. In fact, they’re so bad, they set a new record for improper payments handouts. Federal agencies made $125 billion in improper payments last year, including tax credits to people who didn’t qualify, Medicare payments for treatments that might not be necessary and unemployment benefits for people who were actually working, said a government report released Monday. The level of improper payments was a new high after several years of declines. In addition to fraud, the errors included over payments and under payments, as well payments made without proper documentation. While […]

Obama’s EPA Is At It Again: “If You Like Your Barbecue Grill, You Can Keep Your Barbecue Grill”

  First they “suggested” that we go vegan to Save The Planet. Now Obama’s storm troopers are going to regulate our backyard barbecues using the Clean Air Act. The Environmental Protection Agency has its eyes on pollution from backyard barbecues. The agency announced that it is funding a University of California project to limit emissions resulting in grease drippings with a special tray to catch them and a “catalytic” filtration system. The $15,000 project has the “potential for global application,” said the school. The school said that the technology they will study with the EPA grant is intended to reduce […]

As American As … Apple Pie??

  Setting aside the legal criteria required to hold the office of the President, it doesn’t much matter whether a man was born in Oahu or Lower Slobbovia.  The essence of being American means subscribing to a set of principles on governorship as codified in the U.S. Constitution.  By that measure — which is the only one that really counts — Barack Obama (and by extension, the modern Democratic Party)  is as anti-American as it gets. Could he be: Our Muslim President? No other American President has ever been so partial to Islam and Muslims as Obama and it is […]

ObamaCare Navigator Imprisoned For Terrorism

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius Forum. This is the kind of top quality public servants brought to you via our President, Barack Obama. Obama’s Chicago terrorist has been sentenced to 18 months in prison, authorities in the Windy City announced late last week. No, not his old terrorist, Bill Ayers, his newer terrorist, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, the woman he hired to work as an ObamaCare “navigator” in Illinois. Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, a terrorist from Jordan, was convicted in Israel for her part in several bombings including one from way back in 1969 that killed two students in a […]

NJ Catholic High School Fires Teacher For Posting Catholic Doctrine On Facebook

It is a tenet of the Catholic faith that homosexuality is instrinsically disordered. It is also a tenet of the Catholic faith that same-sex “marriage” is a mirage. Alas, at Immaculata High School in Somerville, New Jersey, you can be Catholic and believe these truths, but you can’t post them on Facebook. Or mention them in a classroom. Patricia Jannuzzi, the Immaculata High School teacher who was forced to remove her Facebook page by the school after making anti-gay posts, has been put on administrative leave. The school notified alumni, parents and students in a letter today. “This episode has […]

When It Comes To Private Email Accounts, Jersey City Is Hillary’s Kind Of Town

  Hillary Clinton is not alone among Democrats. In Jersey City, NJ, everybody uses a private email account. The government servers are lonely, and empty. As Hillary Clinton faces scrutiny over her use of a private email account to handle government business, some local public officials are defending their own use of private email accounts while on the job. The officials — including Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop and former Gov. Jim McGreevey, who runs Jersey City’s prisoner reentry program — offered a variety of reasons for why they use private email accounts, including age. “I’m going to be 58 […]

Clinton Hacked Emails Point To Saudis Funding Benghazi Attack – What About Muslim Brotherhood?

Many times I have read that the Muslim Brotherhood, and then-Egyptian President, Mohamed Morsi (Mursi), were behind the Benghazi attack, and funded the attack though Ansar al-Sharia. A strange confluence of events came together just before the Benghazi attacks (more below). Now there are reports that the Saudis funded the attacks, and both reports point to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), based in Algeria. Hillary Clinton’s “adviser,” Sidney Blumenthal, reportedly had his email hacked by Romanian hacker “Guccifer,” or Marcel Lazar Lehel, as he is known legally. Blumenthal allegedly corresponded with Hillary: One purported Blumenthal email from Feb. 16, 2013, […]

Cheryl Mills And Hillary Clinton: What We Must Not Forget About Benghazi And Their Cover Up

  The Benghazi Accountability Review Board, (ARB) washed Hillary Clinton white as snow, but the Board was as dirty as a rat’s nest. Admiral Mike Mullen served on the Board, and made it clear that Hillary Clinton was NOT to blame. Fearless reporter, Sharyl Attikson told us of Raymond Maxwell, who walked into the Foggy Bottom of the State Department and found Cheryl Mills and other destroying documents, and Congressman Trey Gowdy said “months and months” of Clinton emails are still missing. Details on all below–a jumble of information that must not be forgotten. The ARB didn’t interview Hillary, nor […]
