“Fake News” Is Just Lies

“Fake News” Is Just Lies

Facebook announced that it will crack down on “fake news,” which many Democrats are now blaming for Hillary’s election loss (after previously blaming it on racism, sexism, misogyny, angry white men, uninformed voters, the KKK, Gary Johnson, the media, Russia, James Comey, Jill Stein, and seventy other reasons besides running an unlikable candidate with no new ideas). While fake news is not the reason Trump garnered 300+ electoral votes, it is still horrible. The news should come from people like Walter Cronkite with trustworthy mustaches, not dorks on the internet making things up to…

The Left Was Stunned By Trump’s Win Because They Were Willfully Ignorant

The Left Was Stunned By Trump’s Win Because They Were Willfully Ignorant

Just prior to the election, Seth Myers created a viral video that made the case for Hillary (Seth Myers videos never go viral because they’re funny, only because they reinforce existing ideas). In the clip, Myers talks about how unpopular both candidates are, and then goes on to explain how its hard to choose between Hillary and Trump. He points out that Hillary used a private email server, and then he shifts to Trump and lists off a litany of Trump offenses that continue nearly as long as the counting of votes in Michigan…

The 2016 Election Will Show If Voters Matter

The 2016 Election Will Show If Voters Matter

Once the polls close on Tuesday, something bigger will be revealed than whether Hillary or Trump will be president. When the results are read, we will learn whether American votes actually count, or if our political process is so controlled by insiders, corporate interests, and the media, that our votes are about as valuable as the right to buy Cleveland Browns playoff tickets. A Trump victory would be the ultimate proof that Americans do have a voice. His election would mean that citizens are free to choose whoever they want, even…

Democrats Are Bashing Comey Because They Don’t Trust Voters

Democrats Are Bashing Comey Because They Don’t Trust Voters

After FBI director James Comey announced that the FBI would be re-opening the investigation into Hillary’s email use, Democrats have turned their former golden boy into a punching bag. Comey fell faster than Hillary collapsing from heat on a 73 degree day. While months ago the media praised Comey for his unbiased steady hand, now they decry him as partisan and accuse him of committing crimes. Democrats are claiming that Comey’s announcement, less than two weeks prior to the election, breaks the FBI’s long-standing tradition of not taking action to influence…

Sports Leagues Are Not The Judicial System

Sports Leagues Are Not The Judicial System

The NFL is again catching controversy after suspending New York Giants kicker Josh Brown just one game for allegedly committing domestic violence against his wife. While the league standard for domestic violence is six games, the police had declined to formally charge Brown so there was no conviction. The NFL split the difference and gave Brown just 1 game – putting them in a no-win situation equivalent to answering whether you think your wife’s friend is hot. There could be no winning. Either Brown was innocent, and they were wrong, or he was guilty, and they…

Warren Buffet’s Tax Returns Show The Media’s Willful Ignorance

Warren Buffet’s Tax Returns Show The Media’s Willful Ignorance

During last weekend’s debate / parade of Bill Clinton accusers, Donald Trump claimed that the billionaires supporting Hillary, including Warren Buffet, took advantage of the same type of deductions he did when he claimed a $916 million loss in 1995. Many on the left wanted to believe that this wasn’t true, that other billionaires didn’t seek expert tax advice, and instead just put their earnings into Turbo Tax with the help of a receipt scanner they bought off of Groupon. To be clear, $916 million is a big loss to claim…

Some Thoughts on How Trump Can Turn The Election Around

Some Thoughts on How Trump Can Turn The Election Around

After being taped more or less talking about grabbing Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell’s pussy, Trump’s odds of winning the presidency fell to 17% on betting markets. He had an aggressive and not terrible second debate, but his stock only rose to 21 cents – so things are still looking desperate for the Donald.  Samsung’s stock didn’t fall this hard – and they make devices you put against your ear that randomly explode. An argument can be made that Trump’s audio should not kill his campaign. Sure, it was disgusting and…

Pepe The Frog Is Not A Hate Symbol, The Left Just Loves To Hate

Pepe The Frog Is Not A Hate Symbol, The Left Just Loves To Hate

Pepe the Frog, a dumb meme that features an ugly amphibian, has been classified as a “hate symbol” by the Anti-Defamation League. The frog was called a hate symbol after it was allegedly used by alleged white supremacists and “alt-right” groups. The categorization of an animal meme as a hate symbol makes little sense. An object’s meaning and intent shouldn’t be changed based on its users. Millions of trucks illegally feature Calvin and Hobbes peeing on a Chevy logo, but that doesn’t mean we should re-classify the comic strip as pro-urinating…

Simone Biles Ritalin Use Shows The Problem With Athletes And Drugs

Simone Biles Ritalin Use Shows The Problem With Athletes And Drugs

In between hacking the DNC and Colin Powell, Russia decided to snoop through the World Anti-Doping Agency’s emails to dig up some dirt on U.S. athletes (the organization had recently busted Russia’s doping program). The hackers soon uncovered a big find – America’s sweetheart, gymnast Simone Biles, had a medical exemption to use a banned substance called methylphenidate. While methylphenidate sounds like something Walter White would cook up, most people know it as a treatment for ADHD commonly marketed as Ritalin. Basically, Simone Biles was taking the same pills teachers that…

The Dakota Access Pipeline Shows The Media Has No Interest In Knowledge

The Dakota Access Pipeline Shows The Media Has No Interest In Knowledge

The Obama administration issued a ruling to temporarily halt construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. In this case temporary probably means until Obama is out of office, drinking a beer on the golf course, and watching his replacement trying to deal with it. Some parts of being the president are fun, but having to side with billion dollar oil corporations over poor Native Americans on horseback is not fun, even if their claims are a bunch of buffalo chips. For those not following the controversy, the pipeline would run some 1100 miles from North Dakota to Illinois….
