POLL: Should Alex Jones Have Lost Primary Custody Of His Kids?

Alex Jones berates environmentalists, calling them

InfoWars host and self-proclaimed "performance artist" Alex Jones has just lost primary custody of his three children in a Texas court, and will now share joint custody with his ex-wife Kelly. What do you think about him losing this latest battle in the war for your mind?

Bill Nye Used To Think Chromosomes Determine Gender

12:37 PM 04/28/2017

Bill Nye the Science Guy has the word "Science" in his very name, which is how you know he really likes science and is an expert on science. Do you have "Science" in your name? Then maybe don't talk so much.

YouTube Child-Abusers Double Down On National TV

I'd kinda hoped Mike and Heather Martin, AKA YouTube child-abusers DaddyOFive and MommyOFive, would go away. No such luck.

Baldy the Vodka Slayer strikes again! Why is it that the loudest woke feminist dudes always end up being the most utterly misogynist creeps?

Cops Arrest UC Berkeley Protester For Refusing To Take Off Mask

6:33 PM 04/27/2017

Ever wonder how people get away with wearing masks at political protests? Ever wonder why the police just let it go? Me too. If you're not there to cause trouble, why do you need to hide your face? Why don't you want to be identified doing whatever you went there to do? You're not Batman, bro.

Wisconsin ‘News’ Station Sues Pranksters For Being Funny

2:16 PM 04/27/2017

A few years ago, an actor named Mark Proksch (Better Call Saul, Son of Zorn) did a series of Andy Kaufman-esque pranks that proved just how desperate local TV stations can be to fill airtime. He'd go around to various midwest morning "news" shows, posing as a yo-yo master named "Kenny 'K-Strass' Strasser." The bit was that K-Strass had no idea what he was doing, with a yo-yo or anything else, and he'd see how long he could bumble around and spout nonsense before the baffled, mortified local "news" people cut him off. Here's what that looked like:

POLL: Is Political Violence Justifiable If It Silences People You Don’t Like?

11:03 AM 04/27/2017

Ann Coulter's scheduled speech at Berkeley this week was canceled over concerns about violence, and she's now ditched her subsequent plan to speak in a public area of the campus. This sort of thing keeps happening. Violent mobs keep attacking people whose politics are out of fashion in New York and San Francisco, and it seems to be working. These "Antifa" guys are effectively silencing their opponents. What do you think about that?

Mayor Of Salem, MA Tweets Evidence Of Witchcraft

6:32 PM 04/26/2017

Up until a few minutes ago, I didn't believe in witches, goblins, zombies, vampires, or any of that crap. Well, maybe goblins. I've seen a few people over the years who may very well have been goblins. But I never really believed in the supernatural until I saw this.

Vox.com Hates On Obama For Taking Big Payday

12:56 PM 04/26/2017

I think Obama is a hypocrite for taking a $400,000 speaking fee, after he spent eight years calling the rest of us greedy. And I think the people paying him that much for one speech are idiots. But that doesn't mean he shouldn't take the money. It's a whole lot of dough, for doing next to nothing. Even Hollywood superstars don't make that much per hour, and they actually have to do stuff. Who wouldn't grab that much cash for giving a dumb speech?

Could Bruce Jenner Be The First Female President?

11:30 AM 04/26/2017

Whoops! I mean Caitlyn. Caitlyn Jenner. Who is now a woman, because he's declared it to be so. I mean she. For you see, Dear Reader, one's self-selected identity overrides one's genetic identity. In 2017, you are whatever you proclaim yourself to be. (Unless, of course, you're Rachel Dolezal.) That's how science works: Feelings over facts. Bill Nye teaches us that.

Ann Coulter Prepares To Address Fascists Who Call Themselves ‘Anti-Fascists’

9:00 AM 04/26/2017

In 2017 America, "anti-fascists" have been using violence to stop "fascists" --- i.e. people who say things they don't like --- from speaking. Are they going to get away with it when Ann Coulter shows up to speak in the "home of free speech"?

Sometimes it seems like our leaders are just robots, spitting out whatever they've been programmed to say even if it bears no relation to reality. Now, it seems, "robot" isn't just a handy metaphor. Now you can make any world leader say anything you want, completely artificially.

Why Would You Pay Obama $400K For A Speech?

10:51 AM 04/25/2017

Barack Obama once said, "I do think, at a certain point, you've made enough money." However, he never specified at which point he will have made enough money. Clearly, in 2017 we're nowhere near that point.

YouTube Child-Abusers Say They’re Sorry

8:00 PM 04/24/2017

The other day I told you about the DaddyOFive YouTube channel, in which a Maryland couple named Mike and Heather Martin played "pranks" on their five kids that often involved mental cruelty, humiliation, and even violence. The Martins seemed to think they could do anything they wanted to their children, as long as it was followed up with, "It was just a prank."
