Mark Dice dubs Little Brian Stelter on the White House social media summit
Little Brian Stelter's ratings have fallen 42%. I'm afraid for Mark Dice -- what's he gonna do when Tater gets shitcanned? Dice needs to start promoting Reliable Sources.
David Steinberg: The Washington Examiner stole the Omar story we had broken, without crediting us, and when I complained, they said we should just be happy that someone gave the story some coverage
Now former writer Tiana Lowe says she merely salvaged the story from the "alt-right hacks" who had tainted it with their Nazi associations
Some take issue with this self-serving claim
It takes some cheek to imply that David Steinberg and the Powerline Guys, who are lawyers, are "alt-right hacks" who needed to have their story stolen from them -- without so much as a hat-tip! -- for the Greater Good. And now insults are piled on them to justify this.
I can't believe that an august publication like the Washington Examiner, which employs Seth Mandel, who took money too plant pro-Malaysia stories without disclosing this scheme to his readers, would countenance any kind of ethically-dubious behavior.
Report that a third tanker has been hijacked... I hear it's a Hong Kong ship. Also hearing that the British-owned ship (not the British flagged, Swedish owned ship) has been released with a "warning." So maybe they're picking on countries like Norway and Sweden that can't take the fight to them.
A friend says: "I wonder what course of action McCain would call for if he were still alive."
I'd like to think that McCain would begin an affair with his best friend's wife and break up that marriage and then divorce his cancer-ridden wife. But that's just me, I'm an incorrigible romantic!
Someone just chided me: "Dont make jokes during the funeral. Have some taste."
Iran's hijacking British ships. Earlier they hijacked a Marshall Islands flagged ship (a US territory). But not German or French ships yet. I wonder if they're trying to split the response of the European bloc, hoping that France and Germany will continue their old support of Iran and old pattern of giving the finger to their ostensible US/UK allies.
50 years ago, Muhammed Ali wrote a letter to the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne.Dear Mr. Kopechne, assert yourself in the interests of the good name of your daughter. Get yourself a good lawyer and sue that no good son of a bitch, Edward M. Kennedy, for everything hes got, [J.J. Sefton]
President of the American Vaping Association is a fan of the ONT and Misanthropic Humanitarian
Well, he's a fan of the ONT quoting him. Still -- I think that's something!
Can we start quoting Demi Rose, fellas? AIM HIGHER
Get the fainting couch for Little Benny Shapiro!
Oh wait, don't bother getting it; he's not troubled by this at all, strangely enough
Thanks to Deep State is in Deep Shit
169 127 Ilhan Omar loves this country so much that as soon as she got here she wanted to experience the rich cultural heritage of West Virginia by marrying a relative. None of you love America enough to do that!!

Justice on Trial is the #1 bestseller in the country, per Publisher Weekly's not-cooked list
Jonah Goldberg said a week ago that if he "heard" of Mollie Hemingway's book, he'd recommend it, maybe. Maybe ask him if he's heard of it now.
465 Thank god these people no longer influence anything except each other.

484 The really funny part of all of this is that of course none of this cuck performance art will ever buy them entry into the exclusive clubs of the Left.

Jonah Goldberg bewailed the chant, and his next 8,000 Twitter replies were liberals saying it was his fault because he wrote "Liberal Fascism" and the title hurt their feewings.

Wes Pruden, Washington Times editor and columnist, dies at 83
Thanks to "Ha" for alerting me. (And no, that's not any kind of insult to Pruden; "Ha" is the name he always goes by. A bit awkward in this context but it is just his screen-name.)

Here's What's Bugging Me Right Now

Content Warning: PG-13. Contains nothing but juvenile potty-mouth.

Another Content Warning: It's completely apolitical.

A Last Content Warning: I'm not sure this is even funny. It seems sort of funny to me, but what do I know? It's hard to judge your own schtick.

So. Like everyone else, I'm getting older.

I’m not liking it.

I was prepared for most of the things that happen when you get older. Hair gets a little thinner, a little grayer. You get a little slower, a little, rounder.

I was expecting all that. I’m all right with that. But something’s happened to me lately that nobody warned me about.

My main problem right now is with my, well, how to put this delicately?

My genitals. The problem is with my dirty, filthy genitals.

That's not very delicate at all. Let's call it my squadron.

Now, the lead pilot of the squadron, the guy who's on point, the shooter, he's still doing okay. Maverick -- that’s his call-sign -- Maverick’s doin’ just fine.

Actually, in some ways, he's doing better than ever. He's finally learned the virtue of patience and control and he now takes his sweet old time lighting up a target, rather than spraying the scenery with cannon-fire at the first sign of a bandit.

So, Maverick's okay. Don't you worry about Maverick.

The problem is more with the, um, wingmen.

I call them Goose and Slider. A pair of trigger-happy, devil-may-may care leathernecks who live life on the edge and play by their own rules.

Now, Goose and Slider used to fly a really tight formation. Wing-tip to wing-tip, if you will. A nice delta formation, a nice flying V.

But for the past, oh, five or six years now, I’ve noticed that Goose and Slider are getting a little… sloppy in their formations.

They used to fly at the same altitude. The same elevation. Level.

But lately they’ve been diverging a bit.

Now, Goose. Goose apparently is attempting to break Chuck Yeagher’s altitude record. He’s really elevating his game, if you know what I mean. Goose apparently is looking to reach the upper troposphere of the groin region.

Slider, on the other hand… Slider seems to have gotten entirely different orders from base commander.

I don’t know what he’s up to exactly, but it seems to be some sort of low-altitude scouting mission, maybe looking for troop positions by my knees.

What's he doing down there? I have no fucking idea. I think maybe he's trying to avoid radar or something.

So Goose and Slider-- or as I call them now, Droopy and Clutch -- used to form a nice tight tandem wing. A veritable Blue Angles exhibition in my shorts.

Now, I’ve got all of my business stacked up vertically over each other like DC-9’s over La Guardia.

And this isn’t just vanity. This isn’t just about the way I look down there now.
It’s not just out of an aesthetic appreciation for symmetry.

No, this offends my sense of social equality.

In the old, er, social structure, my guys were equals. They were peers. I liked that arrangement. It was democratic. Egalitarian.

It wasn’t this hierarchical, quasi-feudal regime of overlord and underling.

So there you go. I started out with a pair of genital Hardy Boys, joined at the hip and solving all sorts of crazy mysterious adventures with a combination of youthful exuberance and pluck, and now I’ve got a couple of round, wrinkly old men living in some sort of low-rent bunk-bed arrangement, a kind of downscale
testicular Odd Couple.

This is what's bugging me, right now.

Thank you.
