The former chief-of-staff of Iran’s armed forces said Tuesday that Western spies had used lizards to “attract atomic waves” and spy on his country’s nuclear program.
It was the latest in a long line of incidents of Western countries, including Israel, being accused of deploying secret agents from the animal kingdom.
Hassan Firuzabadi, senior military adviser to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was responding to questions from local media on the recent arrest of environmentalists.
He said he did not know the details of the cases, but that the West had often used tourists, scientists and environmentalists to spy on Iran.
“Several years ago, some individuals came to Iran to collect aid for Palestine… We were suspicious of the route they chose,” he told the reformist ILNA news agency.
“In their possessions were a variety of reptile desert species like lizards, chameleons… We found out that their skin attracts atomic waves and that they were nuclear spies who wanted to find out where inside the Islamic Republic of Iran we have uranium mines and where we are engaged in atomic activities,” he said.
An official portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama was unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery Monday morning.
The painting was done by Baltimore artist Amy Sherald, who is known for her social justice painting style.
“Let’s just start by saying, ‘Wow,’ again. Let me just take a minute. It’s amazing. Wow,” Obama said after the portrait was unveiled. The moment was met with a gasp and applause.
All presidents and first ladies have their portraits done and hung in the Portrait Gallery.
This is the hilarious moment a prankster dad left his son incredibly red-faced at airport security.
Ted Andressen, from New Orleans in Louisiana, smuggled a 12-inch sex toy in his son's carry on luggage - along with a pot of lubrication.
The shocked airport worker can't hide her smile when she lifts the offending object out of his luggage.
Dad Ted posted the footage on Facebook with the caption: "When you plant a 12 inch dildo and lube in your sons carry on. Priceless."
He started filming his son, who has not been named, and waited for the female member of security staff to discover the rogue sex toy.
If you're really curious why people call liberalism a mental disorder, just take a look at this absolutely insane SJW attempting to go into a rant about why Hillary Clinton would've been such a better president while acting as if the black barista in front of her is somehow a victim of oppression.
This is exactly why people need to turn off the liberal media and start thinking for themselves.
The recently released batch of text message exchanges between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reveal the partisan FBI agents criticized Chelsea Clinton in harsh and personal terms.
Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation for sending anti-Trump texts, criticized Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Committee convention in late July.
“Chelsea was awful. Tried to do Bills up close sharing. Didn’t come across as genuine. Plus, she has a HORRIBLE billv goat speech tic,” Strzok wrote in a text to Page — his mistress and FBI colleague on the investigation at the time.
The insulting characterization of Chelsea’s appearance was not the only time Strzok targeted Chelsea; two days prior to her speech he explained to Page that he didn’t “like” Chelsea because he felt she was “self entitled” and “feels she deserves something she hasn’t earned.”
The texts were part of a 400 page cache of messages released by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Wednesday. The document dump, which includes texts sent between Aug. 16, 2015, and July 23, 2017, was accompanied by an interim report on the panel’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.

Even Democrats can’t stay awake as Nancy Pelosi drones on and on.
As the House Minority Leader launched a House filibuster of sorts today, Rep. Doris Matsui had trouble staying awake.
Pelosi spoke on and on in defense of illegal aliens on the House floor, frequently stumbling over her words and the names of so-called “Dreamers.”
The longer she went, the heavier Matsui’s eyelids got, and the lower her head sank.
Pelosi profiled illegals who Democrats want to make citizens. Matsui perked up for a bit and listened to Pelosi, before returning to her slumber.
The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee was the victim of a prank phone call by Russian comedians who offered to give him 'compromising' dirt on Donald Trump – including nude photos of the president and a Russian reality show star.
DailyMail.com can disclose that after the prank, his staff engaged in correspondence with what they thought was a Ukrainian politician to try to obtain the 'classified' material promised on the call.
On an audio recording of the prank call posted online, Adam Schiff can be heard discussing the committee's Russia investigation and increasingly bizarre allegations about Trump with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.
The call, made a year ago, was actually from two Russian comedians nicknamed 'Vovan' and 'Lexus' who have become notorious for their phony calls to high-ranking American officials and celebrities, including UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Elton John.
Its existence was first reported by The Atlantic but not how a staff member working for the minority on the House Intelligence Committee pursued the information after the call.
Schiff's office said the congressman suspected the call was 'bogus' from the beginning and reported it to authorities afterward.
But in a recording of the eight minute conversation, Schiff appeared to take the call seriously – or at least played along convincingly - and emails from the Democrat's staff to the fake politician afterwards said he had found it 'productive'.

Rose McGowan is on tour to promote her new book Brave, and it got off to a rocky start earlier in the week when the actress got into a shouting match with a transgender woman during an appearance at a Barnes and Noble bookstore. McGowan has been promoting Brave on talk shows as well as book signings, but it appears that she has canceled all upcoming appearances after the meltdown at the bookstore. In a video of the altercation, a transgender woman asks Rose McGowan about some remarks that she made on RuPaul's podcast.
In the fan-shot video footage, it appears that Rose McGowan may have been answering questions from the audience when a woman in the back steps up and says, "trans women are dying, and you said that we, as trans women, are not like regular women." She was referencing McGowan's comments on RuPaul's What's The Tee? podcast back in July of last year. The actress and woman's rights activist instantly gets angry and unleashes on the woman. Rose McGowan kept shouting, "we're the same!" back at the woman to the shock of the crowd in the bookstore.
The woman began to shout back, "this is white cis feminism!" at the top of her lungs as she was being escorted out of the building. Rose McGowan continued to shout back well after the woman was out of sight. She said.
"Don't label me, sister. Don't put your labels on me, don't you f%$#ing do that. Do not put your label on me, I don't come from your planet, leave me alone. What I do is for the f%$#ing world, and you should be f%$#ing grateful! So shut the f%$#up. Get off my back, what have you done?"

PETA apparently wants to take the “cow” out of “cowabunga, dude!” The animal rights group has asked the makers of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to swap out the superheroes’ favorite snack, pizza, for a vegan alternative.
In a Jan. 31 letter to Nickelodeon, PETA asked the network to take their upcoming cartoon series in a “different direction” by having the crime fighting turtles eat dairy-free pizza. “Modern kids are embracing vegan food, so why shouldn’t modern Ninja Turtles?” writes PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange.
Nickelodeon’s “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is set to debut in September of 2018 and has already made history by announcing that that turtles’ human sidekick April O’Neil will be depicted as African American for the first time since the characters were created in 1984. PETA is now pushing animators to go even further by having Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael embrace the alleged popularity of vegan food.
“Generation Z already scarfs down 57 percent more tofu and chugs 550 percent more nondairy milk than millennials do,” PETA claims. “70 percent of U.S. college campuses offer daily vegan options… an awesome 42 percent jump from just four years ago.”
PETA did not say if they objected to some of the strange toppings the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have put on their pizzas over the years, including peanut butter, marshmallows, and chocolate sprinkles.

Drinkers were left in hysterics after three women attempted to perform a graceful ballet routine in a pub .
The female trio were captured on camera holding on to the bar while preparing to ‘plié’ - a movement that sees dancers bend and then straighten their knees with their feet turned out.
But any hopes of impressing pubgoers were soon dashed as they accidentally yanked the brass fixture from the bar to send them all flying backwards onto the ground.
Jill Cunliffe, owner of the Rope and Anchor pub in Wigan, where the routine took place, was one of the women involved in the hilarious mishap.
She said the four-second video was cut short because the filmer dropped her phone in a fit of laughter.
Quincy Jones has produced some of the most iconic albums of all time, most notably Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad.
Speaking to GQ, the legendary artist spoke about almost everything, ranging from working with Frank Sinatra, growing up in Chicago, and having 22 girlfriends.
Perhaps the most interesting moment comes when Jones discusses modern music, revealing his adoration for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Drake, Mary J. Blige, and Jennifer Hudson.
However, asked about Taylor Swift — arguably the best selling artist on the planet right now — Jones was less positive. “We need more songs, man. F**king songs, not hooks,” he told the publication.
Asked about what’s missing from her music, Jones replied: "Knowing what you're doing. You know what I mean? Since I was a little kid, I've always heard the people that don't wanna do the work. It takes work, man. The only place you find success before work is the dictionary, and that's alphabetical.”
Questioned further about how he would produce a track, Jones said: "I'll figure something out. Man, the song is the sh*t—that's what people don't realise. A great song can make the worst singer in the world a star. A bad song can't be saved by the three best singers in the world. I learned that 50 years ago.”
Footage showing Emmanuel Macron giving autographs to dozens of kids in the city of Clermond-Ferrand swept French media on January 26 – and it was not Macron’s eagerness to talk to the children that made the headlines.
While President Macron, surrounded by excited children, was trying to give autographs, he found himself in a difficult situation, as he had no pad that would make writing easier. The video shows him asking one of his bodyguards for help, with the latter giving the president a writing case made of Kevlar fiber, which can be used to protect Macron from bullets.
Realizing that the case was unhelpful, Macron jokingly said “The thing is not bulletproof, it’s trash,” and proceeded to say that his security detail had no decent writing case because the services failed to “find one that knew how to write.” His remark prompted the bodyguard to call the president an “idiot” and a “bastard.”
NANCY CORDES: Senator, the President is giving his first State of the Union address this week and polls show that his biggest achievement so far, the tax cuts, are now gaining in popularity as some of these big companies hand out thousand-dollar bonuses.

SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS: Are we having a technical issue here?
NANCY CORDES: Senator, can you hear me? All right. It appears that we have lost our audio connection with Senator Sanders. We’ll take a commercial break and will be right back.
Wendy Williams made some rather interesting comments about the #MeToo movement and a recent grassroots campaign to boycott R. Kelly.
“It’s not going to work,” Williams said of the organizers of the #MuteRKelly campaign to ban the singer from the music industry. “Black people aren’t really good at protesting…not since the King march. It’s not going to work.”
“The #MeToo movement hasn’t affected R. Kelly, because R. Kelly, he wasn’t a #MeToo,” Williams continued. “Aaliyah voluntarily married him when she was 15 years old. And her parents voluntarily let her do it, when she was 15 years old. And that little girl that I saw from my own eye balls that he urinated on and he had his way with, was there at his house, she let it go down.”
Williams went on to blame the parents of R. Kelly’s alleged victims, and explained that she didn’t see a connection between the young women reportedly being kept away in the singer’s home and his long documented predatory behavior.
“The multiple allegations of R. Kelly holding women in his own home. Where are their parents? This is a whole different thing, it has nothing to do with #MeToo,” she added. “R. Kelly is just a very very sick man.”
This game is the sequel to the "TrapAdventure", quite possibly the most frustrating video game ever created.
