The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Poor Tulsi Gabbard – always abused and always cheated by the Dem establishment precisely because she does not come across as annoying in a specifically female way. I find her politics utterly wrongheaded and that’s why I won’t support her in an election, but she seems like a generally pleasant person who has no interest in trying to aggressively nurture me into becoming what she considers a better human being. Kurt Schlichter


Quote II

Maybe a Fidel-admiring revolutionary was never the best champion of even the most popular ideas -- just as a vulgar reality TV star wasn’t. Maybe Bernie is dead. But the universal popularity of hating Wall Street, war and immigration will never die.

It could be that a “safe” choice is all the Democrats need. But I think Trump just dodged a bullet. Ann Coulter


Quote III

“I’ll tell you what I make of it, is that Fox and the sort of right-wing echo chamber has mastered Facebook, aided and abetted, might I say, by Facebook. So I read that article and what that said to me was here it’s Super Tuesday, the Democrats are trying to decide who they want to nominate against Donald Trump, the Coronavirus is spreading, we now have more and more reports from different places in the country, but led by Fox News and Breitbart and others, it’s going to be about my e-mails. Hillary Clinton

Still everybody's fault but hers and Bill's. The Queen of Rationalization.


Quote IV

“I think what has really, really upset the British public is that Meghan Markle, who many people consider only, you know, five clicks up from trailer trash, has actually tried to disrespect the queen. And the queen is the most respected person – most respected woman – in the world.” Victoria Mather

He might not be in the news much anymore. But he still draws ire from the SJW among us. But you knew Milo Y. wasn't going to take shit lying down.

A waitress who attempted to have Milo Yiannopoulos removed from a restaurant in New Jersey for being “racist” was subsequently fired after Milo contacted the owners of the restaurant.

Milo said he went for supper at The Fox & Falcon with his black husband and another black friend but that “it turned out our table was insufficiently diverse for the waitress.”

The waitress tweeted that she had loudly asked near Milo’s table “why do we allow racist, sexist, antisemitic trash here?”

Milo responded by emailing the PR company that represents the restaurant and drawing attention to her tweet while claiming that he was working with a local news affiliate on a story about political intolerance.

Who is Doug Monahan? He's an individual that is a person of interest to many, many people.

Lots of people want a word with Doug Monahan — government lawyers, crowdfunding backers, people from his past, and me.

I’d been trying to find him for over a year. As a reporter interested in crowdfunding disasters, I thought Monahan’s failed iBackpack project was one of the ultimate gadget pipe dreams gone bad. The beats were familiar: an idea that raised more than half a million dollars, only to never ship and leave behind thousands of angry backers. The difference in this story, however, is that for only the second time, the Federal Trade Commission is coming for the creator.

The agency claims Monahan took his backpack funds and spent them on “personal expenses,” including bitcoin purchases, ATM withdrawals, and credit card debt. The agency says he threatened backers who pursued him for their bags. The state of Texas is suing him, too. A lot of people want a piece of Monahan, but he’s not going down without a fight. He’s serving as his own lawyer to dispute the claims in court, and he invited me down to Texas to clear his name and reputation.

If you want a new job, you might be interested in this.

Aside from making a lifelong commitment to the person you love and wearing a gorgeous dress, undoubtedly the best thing about weddings is the free cake and the booze.

But what if you could enjoy these on a regular basis and get paid for it - without getting married or having to attend a wedding?

Well, now you can.

That's because an online exhibition platform is looking to hire a member of the public as a ‘Wedding Fair Tester’, to travel around the UK and review wedding fairs across England, Wales and Scotland.

The successful candidate will be paid £50 an hour, as well as all travel expenses and must be wedding obsessed.

Nasty Joos and horrible Americans are out to destroy Iran or so they think.


As the Iranian regime struggles to maintain its legitimacy following one of the most challenging quarters in its 40-year history, it has added another longstanding enemy of the Iranian people to its list of parties responsible for the coronavirus outbreak that has killed thousands (officially 233) in the country.

That enemy? Israel and the Jews.

According to the Jerusalem Post, Iran’s Press TV, the regime's English-language propaganda network, has been pushing antisemitic conspiracies about the coronavirus in order to distract from Tehran’s abject mishandling of the outbreak, which has killed at least two lawmakers and several senior government officials.

I think I'd take my chances with Coke off the streets. Televangelist Jim Bakker has the cure for the Coronavirus.

A popular televangelist was recently issued a cease and desist order by the New York attorney general to stop promoting his cure-all product as a cure for the highly-contagious Covid-19 coronavirus strain.

The last thing you would expect a holy man to do is promote a fake cure against a potentially deadly disease to desperate people for profit, and yet, that’s allegedly exactly what Rev. Jim Bakker has been doing. To be fair, Bakker had long been peddling his “Silver Solution” – a scientifically unproven medication made from the precious metal – as a cure for all sorts of ailments, but when he included the rapidly-spreading Covid-19 coronavirus strain to the list of curable diseases, authorities stepped in.

Kute Korner Krack Dealers: They’re Baaaaaaack!

Who let them out? Why are they everywhere? On the corners, by the entrances to supermarkets, at the crossings, and all over the place. They swoop into the neighborhood in massive SUVs driven by classic MILFs. They pull in, tumble out giggling, and yank their card tables and their boxes of contraband from the back. Then they set up their offerings in stacks, and slap crude handmade signs with a heavy helping of glitter on the tables. Then they don their gang colors and get to work on you.

They are the most ruthless retail agents known to man. They are virtually irresistible in their peddling of their wares. They do it with cutting edge cute, and they have no scruples concerning your desperate attempt to diet away the winter flab.

They are the Girl Scouts and no matter how I try I cannot avoid them.

Their web of pushers has been strung across Seattle. They don’t even offer the first one free. They just jibber-jabber among themselves with their guardian MILF smiling knowingly at you. Sometimes, when the junkies are slow to line up for their fix, they do things like cartwheels or jump rope. Then they get your attention. The MILF sees this and smiles again.

There is a time and place for everything. This was not one of those times or places. Genius Award Winners.

A judge yesterday dropped contempt charges against a Pennsylvania couple who submitted a jury duty questionnaire filled with jokes, foul language, and other inappropriate statements.

The questionnaire was recently sent to Tina Keller, a 25-year-old Lackawanna County resident. But the form was actually filled out by Drayke Jacobs-Van-Tol, Keller’s 23-year-old boyfriend, who mailed the document back to court administrators.

Upon receipt of the questionnaire, a judge cited Keller for contempt and summoned her to a court hearing yesterday.

A repentant Keller told Judge Vito Geroulo that while she had signed the jury summons, Jacobs-Van-Tol (seen at right) had filled it out. The couple apologized for the submission, which Geroulo termed “intentionally disrespectful” and said could have landed them in jail for up to six months.

The two-page questionnaire includes about 40 questions, some of which required written answers. In response to the question “How many children do you have?,” Jacobs-Van-Tol wrote, “none survived the abortions.” Asked for a list of communities resided in during the past decade, he wrote, “The NSA knows everything. Ask them.”

March 7, 2020

A high school math teacher in New Jersey will be attending the New York Yankees season opener, thanks to his students.

Little did they know, the Yankees would take notice and give the teacher and his family an offer of their own.
