A fiery speech about gun rights brought the Virginia House of Delegates to a halt on Friday, with many Democrats walking out of the chamber and then calling for a recess to try to calm their anger.
Del. Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper) set off the reaction with remarks that began by defending Republican resistance to gun-control measures in the wake of the Florida school shooting, but wound up blaming “the abortion industry” for fostering a broken society and castigating the Democratic Party for segregation and the Japanese internment camps of World War II.
He was responding to recent criticism that Republicans have blood on their hands for failing to act on gun violence. “I would really appreciate it if every time you want to make a powerful point, you don’t project the sins, the atrocities and the injustices that the Democratic Party perpetrated onto others onto us,” said Freitas, who is running for the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine this year. Four others are seeking the GOP nomination, including Corey Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, who equates gun control with castration and is holding campaign events at gun ranges.
After Democrats settled down, Del. Joseph Lindsey (D-Norfolk) told the House that “today, I have been offended as I can never recall since being a part of this body. And I have seen many of my colleagues emotionally shaken and bothered by either a lack of concern for facts or just simply playing to the cameras, I don’t know which.”
Google is now doing everything they can in order to brainwash idiots into believing that even left-wing groups are actually pro-life. Take a look at the search results showing Planned Parenthood is not only a pro-life organization, but the number one pro-life organization!
For those that don't know, Planned Parenthood is openly and admittedly pro-choice, and has absolutely no pro-life values whatsoever. It looks like the left-wingers at Google are doing everything they can in order to brainwash the public into believing the opposite.

Nightline correspondent David Wright on Thursday night desperately attempted to get actress and singer Dolly Parton to label Donald Trump as the face of 21st century sexism. Talking to the entertainer about her role in the iconic film 9 to 5, Wright played a clip of Jane Fonda deriding her character’s boss as a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot.”
Wright sneered, “The sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical portrayed so effectively in that movie by actor Dabney Coleman hasn’t exactly disappeared from the culture. We have a president of the United States who said the things on that bus.”
Accusations of sexual harassment and abuse certainly have surrounded Donald Trump. But they’ve also been plagued Bill Clinton for decades. Somehow, his name never came up as one of Wright’s examples. Parton shut the journalist down, refusing to get political:
I’m not addressing that. I do not get into that. Of course I have my opinion about everybody and everything. But I learned a long time ago, keep your damn mouth shut if you want to stay in show business. I’m not in politics. I am an entertainer.
The ABC correspondent whined, “And yet you’re also a role model.”
This is what happens when you booze it up before a performance.
Jesus couldn't save him.
A Massachusetts man was arrested on Thursday after a letter with white powder was sent to Donald Trump Jr.’s New York City apartment early last month, federal authorities said.
Daniel Frisiello, of Beverly, was taken into custody just before 8 a.m. while he was heading to work, federal authorities said. Frisiello is expected to appear in federal court in Worcester later in the day. Authorities were able to track down Frisiello by analyzing a “glitter bomb” letter — a prank where envelopes are filled with glitter — sent to Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber. Investigators matched the text font in the “glitter bomb” threat to those seen on the letters of the white-powder envelopes.
Former MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan, who is running for Congress as a Democrat in New York's 21st congressional district, said in a recent interview that he never voted in an election and was "wrong" not to cast a ballot.
Ratigan appeared on the "Jeff Graham Show" last week to discuss his bid to unseat incumbent Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. The host asked Ratigan about several issues, including a nonexistent voting record, which prompted the candidate to say that he has never voted because of "utter disgust."
"It's not a problem," Ratigan said. "Let's be honest with each other: the largest voting constituency in America is people who don't vote. You wanna know why they don't vote? Because they're disgusted. Because they're disgusted by a two-party political system that is running small little media companies that they call campaigns and then producing content that tries to destroy the identity and personal life of the other person."
Ratigan then said that he is one of those people, before adding that he "was wrong" not to vote and thought he could make "[his] difference" as a journalist and as a small-business owner.
"As I did that, you know what happened? It got worse and worse, and the government became less serious and less serious. And the risks of the country got bigger and bigger, and the opportunity to improve the country gets bigger as the risk gets bigger," Ratigan said. "My indulging, my disgust—my accurate assessment of the dysfunction of the two-party political system is something I can no longer indulge."
The National Republican Congressional Committee blasted Ratigan in a statement after the interview, noting that his first vote will be for himself.
"It's only fitting that Dylan Ratigan would move from New York City and the first vote he casts will be for himself," said NRCC spokesman Chirs Martin. "He's a liberal talking head with no voting record, and now he's running for Congress in a desperate grasp for relevance."
Ratigan said in another interview last week that, if the incumbent was a Democrat, he would "consider" running as a Republican.
On the "Jeff Graham Show," Ratigan was asked whether he would support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to lead House Democrats if they win a majority, prompting the candidate to say that voting for her is something that he would have to "look at." He emphasized that Pelosi is "definitely not" one of his favorite politicians.
CNN’s Chris Cillizza and Jackie Kucinich dismissed the Obama-era “Fast and Furious” scandal, in which the administration allowed the sale of U.S. arms to Mexican drug cartels, on air Tuesday.
The two were responding to comments from President Obama, in which he claimed in a speech at MIT that his administration was scandal-free:
One of the things I’m proud of in my administration was the fact that, and I think these things are connected, we didn’t have a scandal that, you know, embarrassed us. There were mistakes. We’d screw up. But there wasn’t anything during eight years.
Kucinich mentioned that there were scandals in the administration but said, “When you’re talking about the core staff, he’s probably right.” The analyst brought up Benghazi but failed to mention any others before saying, “The Mexican gun runners – I’m losing the name of it at the moment.”
“The guns. The Eric Holder issue when he was attorney general related to the gun running,” Cillizza jumped in.
“There were issues. However, when you’re talking about the core people, no, you didn’t hear the same sniping. There wasn’t the palace intrigue that you hear with [the Trump] administration,” Kucinich continued.
Apparently, the office of Attorney General does not qualify as a core member of the presidential administration, according to CNN.
New York City was stunned Thursday when the person who Mayor Bill de Blasio picked to lead the city's school system turned down the job on live television.
De Blasio's office announced to reporters on Wednesday that Miami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho had accepted the open position of schools chancellor.
"Alberto Carvalho is a world-class educator with an unmatched track record of success," de Blasio said in a statement. "I am very confident that our extensive, national search has found New York City the best person to lead the nation's largest school system into the future."
But in an emergency Miami-Dade school board meeting the following day televised by the New York press, Carvalho seemed to telegraph that he was having second thoughts.
"I know everyone expects a decision now, and I am confident in telling you I have made a decision," Carvalho said. "However, I'm a man of honor and I believe the decision I made needs to be communicated to the person who made me an offer."
Carvalho called de Blasio's offer one "that just hours ago I thought was the best offer for me" and said honor dictates he should speak to the mayor about his decision before announcing it publicly.
Carvalho then asked for a recess, left the room, and returned to the meeting about 20 minutes later.
"This is probably the second most difficult thing I've done in my life. The very first was to leave my country," said Carvalho, who was born in Portugal.
Carvalho sung de Blasio's praises, but eventually announced to loud cheers: "I am breaking an agreement between adults to honor an agreement and pact I have with the children of Miami."
"I shall remain in Miami-Dade as your superintendent," he announced.
Awesome and entertaining images to make your life better.
Two shoplifting suspects running from police scaled a fence to get away from officers and landed in a secure parking lot of a police station — and in custody.
The pair ran along the side of a building and jumped a fence, despite a sign for “Peoria Police” above the door. Security video shows Hourieh trying to hide under a bench before being placed in custody.
Mac Biggs, a 17 year-old transgender boy, was named the top female wrestler in the 110-pound weight class for the state of Texas.
Biggs has been undergoing HRT as part of his transitioning process.
His testosterone surge gives him a massive advantage over girls, as he “manhandles” opponents with ease. Several female wrestlers have forfeited their matches rather than compete with Biggs.
One opponent’s father filed a lawsuit to convince the authorities to allow Biggs to wrestle boys.
According to the Washington Post, crowds have booed Biggs as he competed. During his semifinal match, a coach asked, “If you really want to be a boy, why don’t you wrestle the boys?”
This is the dramatic moment an oblivious intruder tries to break into a house - while the homeowner watches his every move from an upstairs window.
The suspect, armed with a crowbar, was operating in broad daylight as he tried to make his way into the house.
The blundering house-breaker works away at the door for several minutes, completely unaware that he is being watched from an upstairs window.
In fact, he doesn't even appear to notice that the window is open at all as he smashes at the glass at attempts to prise the plastic open.
All the while, the homeowner has already called 999 and is waiting for authorities to arrive.
He has the Olympic spirit.
Rapper Vic Mensa is not a fan of AR-15s, and he made that crystal clear.
Mensa recently was spotted by TMZ and told them, “Point blank, you’ve got to ban AR-15s…You don’t need an AR-15 to kill a deer. You just don’t.”
It’s pretty wild that Mensa thinks he’s qualified to hand out gun advice given the fact he was arrested and pled no contest to having an illegal concealed weapon in his vehicle.
Call me crazy on this one, but I really don’t think we should be taking gun advice from people who have a criminal history. Again, maybe that’s too hot of my own take here, but I don’t think it is.
Another CNN analyst proved his ignorance about guns on Saturday by suggesting that women cannot carry concealed guns because they wear skirts and dresses.
CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes fiercely argued against President Donald Trump’s suggestion that teachers and school officials could prevent school shootings if they carried guns in the classroom.
His reasoning, however, was both unexpected and borderline misogynistic.
“A lot of these schools—Sandy Hook had an all-female faculty, from principal to teachers. For a woman, where are you going to hide that gun during the day?” Fuentes argued. “If you wear a dress, if you wear a skirt, are you going to have to wear a jacket everyday with a belt and a holster, the way a detective on duty would do? It’s not a real practical solution for a variety of reasons.”
A passenger was thrown off a flight after he walked across the tarmac and smoked a cigarette while the plane was refuelling.
The reckless holidaymaker didn't seem to care he was dangering the lives of everyone around him as he smoked a cigarette on his way to the Airbus A320, at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in Jakarta.
Security staff stormed aboard the Citilink flight seconds before takeoff at around 9.30pm yesterday.
Policemen were filmed grappling with man in his seat as he protested and asked if he will put on a different plane, to which the officers tell him ''we will talk about that outside''.
The officers then dragged him away down the aisle and off the flight.
Listen to Tommy Robinson interview a bunch of German leftists who seem to know absolutely nothing about what's going on in their own country as long as it's a Muslim who commits the crime. They even attempt to cover up for the Muslim after he murdered and raped a young German girl. Listen to some of these responses from the leftist who seem to know absolutely nothing, and then their right wing opponents who seem to know everything about what's actually going on in their country.
Watch this drunk idiot almost get into a fight with his own mirror reflection before finally seeming to realize that he wasn't going to win the battle.
A widely-used online writing and grammar resource by Purdue University is encouraging students to avoid ‘generic use of MAN and other words with masculine markers.’
No more using the words “mailman”, “postman”, “mankind”, “Manchester”, “man-made”, “Manhattan”, “batman, “superman”, “boogeyman”, “businessman”, “cameraman”, “woman”, “human”, “romance”, and the list goes on.
All set to be banned because of the ‘feelz’ of a looney few.
It looks like the Antifa terrorist movement is quickly losing its steam as they're even unable to garner support and possibly one of the most democratic cities in all of America, Washington DC.
Anti-fascist demonstrators clashed with police in Milan on Saturday during a day of nation-wide demonstrations against the far-right Casa Pound party.
Clashes erupted when demonstrators tried to overcome a police cordon in Largo la Foppa in an attempt to enter an adjacent street and form a procession.
Anti-Casa Pound demonstrations took place in Rome and Palermo on the same day, in a tense political climate ahead of the March 4 general elections.
