If you know your history, you know that the word "historic" can mean pretty much anything. Technically, every single thing that happens, every second of every day, is part of history. Yet liberals love to hyperventilate about how "historic" something is, as long as it's something that helps them further their agenda. You can't spell "histrionic" without H-I-S-T-O-R-I-C.
Well, we had a pretty good run, Planet Earth. The invention of fire, the moon landing, American Ninja Warrior... We've done pretty well for ourselves. Until today, that is, with the news that the UK has voted to leave the European Union. This is an absolute disaster. It's the worst thing that has ever happened, anywhere. It is a victory for evil, and it may very well bring about the end of the world. Here's why.
If you're anything like me: 1) You're welcome, and 2) You've been very worried about how Corey Lewandowski will put food on the table after being fired by Donald Trump. Shoving reporters around is a fun hobby, but who else is gonna pay him to do it?
Some people don't like the trailers for the all-new, literally dickless Ghostbusters. As their male tears fall like rain all over the shards of their shattered patriarchy, here's something else for them to complain about: a really good song that is fun to listen to.
If the House Democrats' temper tantrum-turned-slumber party on gun control doesn't make sense to you, don't worry. DNC Chairbot Debbie Wasserman Schultz is here to explain it all.
Let's say you're a House Democrat (sorry) and you're not getting what you want just because it's unconstitutional. Whaddaya do next? That's easy: You throw a big baby fit!
I live about 15 miles from Brownsburg, Indiana. It seems like a nice enough little town, if you like Indiana (which I do). Some might call it dull, but I call it quiet and peaceful. Anytown, USA. A nice place. A place I only ever pass through on my way to some other place, but a nice place. CNN once ranked it #33 on its list of best places to live in America.
When Omar Mateen said, "I did it for ISIS," what did he really mean? We may never know.
Last week, New York Daily News reporter Gene Kuntzman reacted to the Islamic terrorist attack on the Pulse night club in Orlando by going to a gun range and having his whole world shattered by firing an AR-15. Here's what he said about it:
Every time the Republican Party disappoints me, I'm reminded that their opponents are even worse. The Democrats really do stink, and some of them aren't even bothering to deny it anymore.
When Corey Lewandowski grabbed Michelle Fields and then lied about it, Donald Trump stood by his loyal aide. He made dark insinuations about Fields' ninja assassin skills. He claimed the Secret Service said nothing happened. He lied his fat ass off about it, just like he lies his fat ass off about everything else.
Here's a thought experiment: Imagine Omar Mateen had been an outspoken member of the Tea Party. Or the Catholic Church. Or the Republican Party. Or some other group that isn't considered acceptable outside of Flyover Country. Imagine that even as Mateen was murdering all those people in Orlando, he called the cops and the media to tell them exactly why he did it. Imagine Obama's Justice Department had transcripts of his every word.
Now that we know Omar Mateen killed all those people because the NRA told him it was the only way to stop being gay, we can get back to making excuses for any other bad thing a Muslim ever does.
Imagine if, in the days following 9/11, America's reporters competed with each other to see how quickly they could purchase plane tickets. And then, in grim tones, they reported on how easy it was to get those tickets.
The following would fall under the header of "Entertainment News," except that's redundant because it's 2016 and all news is entertainment.
With each new piece of evidence that Omar Mateen was an Islamic terrorist who wanted the world to know he killed all those people for Allah, our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media have to burrow their heads deeper and deeper into their ostrich holes.
As the search for a motive in the Orlando massacre continues, we're no closer to an answer. Every clue just seems to further muddy the water.
Have you ever listened to a really old person tell you a story, and gradually you realize they're telling you about a movie they once saw and they got it confused with real life?
Pam Bondi is the Attorney General of Florida. And thanks to Anderson Cooper, we now know an important part of her job description that she hasn't been honoring: to be a "vocal champion for gay and lesbian citizens."
