Another Lawsuit Over Rolling Stone’s UVA Rape Hoax Will Proceed To Trial

I think rape is such a horrible crime that it's very important to make sure a specific accusation is true before punishing people for it. Whereas our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left think rape is such a horrible crime that any accusation serves as its own proof. We must #BelieveWomen, no matter what. Expressing any doubts or pointing out any inconsistencies in an accuser's story will get you branded a "rape denier." Well, if you want to know where that attitude leads, just look at what's happening to Rolling Stone.

#NotAllIslams Set Fire To Melbourne Bank Due To Long Wait Time

9:21 AM 09/19/2017

No, folks, not my usual #NotAllMuslims. This time I'm confining my racism and Islamophobia to people with the last name Islam. Only one of those people did what you're about to see, so it doesn't really count. #NotAllIslams.

Jared Fogle’s Ex-Wife Is Suing Subway

7:12 AM 09/19/2017

Speaking as a Hoosier and a fan of processed meats, I was heartbroken when it turned out Jared Fogle is a big piece of garbage. I'm glad he's in jail, but one thing has always bugged me about the whole fiasco: How did Subway IP Inc. not know? This creep got caught because he was blabbing to a reporter about what he was into, so it's not like he was keeping it to himself. He made Subway a lot of money over the years. Did they turn a blind eye to keep it rolling in?

Is This The Worst Political Ad Ever? Or Possibly The Best?

5:02 AM 09/19/2017

I don't know anything about Dan Helmer, except that he's a Virginia Democrat running for Congress and he's a veteran of the U.S. Army. I respect his service to our country, and I wish him no ill will as he seeks to challenge Republican Barbara Comstock. But this campaign ad he just put out is the most baffling thing I've ever seen, and I've seen mother!.

Top 10 Reasons I’ll Miss Rolling Stone Magazine

3:18 PM 09/18/2017

Jann Wenner is putting Rolling Stone up for sale, and a lot of people are wondering if this is the end of an era. You might not like the magazine because of their UVA rape hoax, or their Jahar Tsarnaev cover, or just the simple realization that it's not 1974 anymore and you don't have to care what they think. But no matter what happens, over the past 50 years Rolling Stone has given us a lot of historical moments to treasure. It's been an important part of American culture since LBJ was president. Although it was tough to narrow down the following list, here are the Top 10 Reasons I'll Miss Rolling Stone Magazine. Drum roll, please... Number 10!

Ben Rhodes Is Jealous That Somebody Else Is Getting Attention For Lying

11:11 AM 09/18/2017

If you watched the Emmys last night, my condolences. I didn't tune in for a bunch of Democrats further alienating America and making themselves even more of a fringe party, because I can get that by turning on any channel of TV, or looking at any other form of media, at any hour of an average day in 2017. Putting Stephen Colbert in a tuxedo to do it for a few hours on a Sunday night in September seems redundant, but let them have their fun. This is all they have left.

ICYMI (In Case You Missed It), the other day a very important thing happened on CNN. No, seriously! A crucial moment in American history occurred on their air. Here's what it looked like:

Berkeley Hosts Conservative Speaker Without Plunging Into Chaos

2:14 PM 09/15/2017

I don't know if Antifa decided to take the night off, or if they were deterred by the extraordinary security precautions in Berkeley last night. Maybe they just got bored with being violent assholes. But I'm glad Ben Shapiro was able to speak there without any leftist idiots starting a riot.

That Clown Protest Of The Movie ‘It’ Is A Hoax

Clowns have never scared me. All they do is disappoint me. And now they've done it again. If you can't trust a clown, who can you trust?

Who’s Ready For The Worst Reality Show Ever?

Here's one from the Department of Redundancy Department: Somebody's making a reality show set in Washington, DC. That place is already a reality show, amirite? [awesome high-fives all around]

Here’s The New Yorker Cover They Wish They’d Published After The Election

10:22 AM 09/14/2017

If your mantra is "He stinks, but at least she lost," then we are pals. And the New Yorker wants to feed our schadenfreude. They're not letting go of the dream. They're #StillWithHer.

Anthony Weiner: It’s That Teenage Girl’s Fault

Whenever I'm feeling down, I just remind myself of one important fact: I am not Anthony Weiner. How great is it to not be Anthony Weiner?

UVA Students Deface Statue Of Thomas Jefferson, Because That’s What We Do Now

1:44 PM 09/13/2017

Remember when people started freaking out over statues, and President Trump speculated that pretty soon they'd go after statues of the Founding Fathers? And remember how ridiculous you thought it was? Remember how you thought it would never come to that?

Berkeley City Council Allows Cops To Use Pepper Spray On Rioters

11:03 AM 09/13/2017

Note that I use the word "rioters," not "protesters" or "counter-protesters" or "demonstrators" or any other euphemism. The violence and destruction we're seeing at these rallies, committed by opponents of free speech, isn't protesting. It's rioting. And the cops need to be able to quell it, or there's no point in having cops.

Sorry, Hillary, But Benghazi Isn’t Going Away

9:00 AM 09/13/2017

I'm glad Hillary Clinton isn't president, and I enjoy the despair of the poor souls who think she should be. But that isn't sufficient justice for what she's done. She gets to waddle around promoting her latest stupid book, she gets to bask in the adulation of Democrats and the media (pardon the redundancy), while her uselessness, dishonesty, and flat-out lawlessness continues to go unpunished.

Michael Moore Isn’t Popular On Broadway Either

6:42 PM 09/12/2017

The only time anybody ever wanted to see a Michael Moore movie was when he was exploiting 9/11 survivors. Other than that, his movies have been duds. If he thought things would be different on the Great White Way, he was wrong yet again.

DaddyOFive Now DaddyOnProbation

10:42 AM 09/12/2017

A few months back I followed the story of Mike Martin, AKA DaddyOFive, a YouTuber who made a very comfortable living by monetizing his abuse of his own children. He posted dozens of videos of himself tormenting his kids, or coercing them into tormenting each other, and it earned him the closest thing to fame and fortune that's available on YouTube. Martin had a huge following among children and other psychopaths -- over 750,000 subscribers -- but once the adults found out what he was doing, it was all over. He lost custody of two of his kids, and his income stream was cut off.
