77 years ago today, D-Day.

Americans commemorated D-Day, June 6, 1944, on Sunday, that led to the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany.

“77 years ago, tens of thousands of American men bravely stormed the beaches of Normandy to rid the world of evil. Now on #DDay, we honor their memory by remembering their sacrifice,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted.

Any excuse to act like an animal will do.

A protester in Minneapolis on Thursday was standing in front of a fiery backdrop when he divulged that he did not know the name of the person he was rioting for.

Winston Smith, 32, was shot and killed Thursday in the city after an exchange of gunfire with police from a fugitive task force, KSTP-TV reported. Friends of the deceased man told the outlet that he loved music, had a family and didn’t deserve to die.

Once again her bra size clearly exceeds her IQ. AOC & family won't accept help from big bad caring people.

GoFundMe has disabled donations to a fundraiser organized by The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh meant to help Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) grandmother repair her home in Puerto Rico, which was damaged by Hurricane Maria in 2017.

In an email sent to Walsh Friday night, GoFundMe said they were “in touch with the beneficiary’s family and they made clear they will not be accepting the funds raised.”

Who is Christine Grady, MSN, Ph.D.? Why she is Mrs. Anthony Fauci

Now that Dr. Anthony Fauci is feeling the heat for funding gain-of-function research at Wuhan Institute of Virology and covering it up, it's time to scrutinize his wife. Christine Grady, MSN, Ph.D., is Fauci's colleague at the National Institute of Health, where she serves as chief of bioethics and head of human subjects research at the NIH Clinical Center. According to the Center's website, Grady's contributions are "primarily in the ethics of clinical research, including informed consent, vulnerability, study design, recruitment, and international research ethics, as well as ethical issues faced by nurses and other health care providers."

In a gushing portrait, Vogue portrayed Fauci and Grady as "a medical power couple leading the fight against the virus." But taxpayers might not be so effusive about Mr. and Mrs. Fauci's "international research ethics," and "study design," now that America's economy and liberties have been destroyed by the Chinese virus they funded.

Why was Grady ever placed in a position at the NIH, where she was the final arbiter of the ethics of her husband's experiments? If Fauci wanted to study gain-of-function research on lethal viruses, did he just need to roll over in bed and say, "Honey, is this OK?" to obtain "ethical" permission?


Nope, we aren't voting ourselves out of this.

A valid point made? Or one hell of an expensive mistake?

SAN ELIZARIO, Texas — A Texas mother posing as her 13-year-old daughter at middle school and documenting her experience online, allegedly to make a point about school shootings, was arrested for the “social experiment.”


Casey Garcia, 30, was taken into custody and charged with criminal trespass and tampering with government records, KWTX reported.

San Elizario Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Jeannie Mesa-Chavez said in a statement to KTSM, “While there was a breach in security by an individual associated as a parent with the school… We want to assure you that our security measures are being reviewed and evaluated.”

Garcia was initially booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility for criminal trespass, tampering with government records as well as one unrelated traffic warrant, KWTX reported. Her bonds totaled $7,908.

Instead of opening his piehole perhaps he should produce cars on time. ELON MUSK SAYS MONEY ISN’T REAL - HE CLAIMS THAT “GOODS & SERVICES ARE THE REAL ECONOMY.”


As part of his trend of tweeting confusing takes and meme posts about currency, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter and seemingly suggested that money isn’t real.

“Goods & services are the real economy, any form of money is simply the accounting thereof,” Musk said in a tweet on Saturday.


So Money Isn’t Real?
It seems as though the SpaceX founder is suggesting that money only acts to facilitate goods and services in the economy, which most anyone with a grade-school level understanding of “how money works” could have told you.

Can you make that an extra value meal asked our Genius Award Winner.

Soldier so drunk she tried to order McDonald’s from police officer arresting her

Soldier so drunk at drive-thru she tried to order burger for police officer
Army lance corporal Kayleigh Marie Goodall, 33, was removed from her car after asking to order food from police
An army lance corporal who drove to McDonald’s while three times over the alcohol limit was so drunk she tried to order food from a police officer sent out to arrest her.

Kayleigh Marie Goodall, 33, was caught driving ‘all over the road’ after boozing with friends in Richmond, North Yorkshire and heading back to her camp in Catterick Garrison for more drinks.

In a drunken haze on May 15, she decided to drive to a McDonald’s less than a mile from her base.

The drive-thru was closed and cordoned off but the corporal still pulled in, York Magistrates Court heard.

Something tells me that 2 women will still need to go together. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A women's urinal has been created by two ex-University of Bristol students, which they claimed was six times quicker to use than a conventional loo.

Amber Probyn and Hazel McShane designed the hands-free Peequal because they were fed up with long queues for the ladies toilets at festivals.

"No funnels are involved and it's semi-private, you can't see anything from the waist down," said Ms McShane.

A prototype is being trialled at the Bristol Comedy Garden at the weekend.
