  1. Doesn’t look like Tomi Lahren to FoX News is happening

    Saw this on Twitter

    Fox spokesperson confirms that this is NOT happening; Tomi Lahren is not getting hired.

    • Nice interview with Megyn Kelly’s mother.

      My guess is that public people cross their fingers and toes when family members are interviewed.

      There is no telling what they might say.

  2. Just read the story where two Americas confronted a terrorist on a passenger train going from Amsterdam to Paris.

    They took the bastard’s AK and handgun away, beat him unconscious, hog-tied him. They then treated a slash on the neck he received while attacking the Americans with a box cutter.

    Hurray, guys!

    • The Left is absolutely obsessed with race. And God have mercy on anyone, especially a non-white, who disagrees.

        • The other day, I was at Barnes & Noble looking for a book for my son-in-law (the new website is useless for store searches). It was this year’s NFL Guide.
          A woman right behind me started screaming about the name of the Washington team. When I tried to explain that it wasn’t offensive, she called me a “racist.” I then showed her my Tribal Card. She still said that I didn’t know what I was talking about because, “Rachel says…” Asking her who Rachel was, it was Maddow, of course.
          I ended up telling her that I thought that the Dallas team should be forced to change its name. After all, in the 1800’s, the term “cowboy” met a lowlife, usually a rustler. theif, a thug in general. This nice lady then told me to go and eff myself and stormed off.

          Sorry for the long post, but I thought the story explained these people to a “T.”

          • I generally find the opposite. People in real life are civil and will politely comment on a political issue and be open to other opinions.

            You know…the opposite of the way that they may act when they’re sitting anonymously behind a monitor.

          • I never raised my voice or showed anger during the above incident. I have noticed that many on the Left simply cannot conduct themselves the same. My “cowboy” comment was an attempt to both defuze the matter with humor, and point out how ridiculous she was.

            The only thing that she did accomplish was gathering a small crowd that looked at her the same way that you’d look at somebody else’s small child throwing a tantrum.

          • Thank you, Cece. But, like us all, I can have my moments.

            I guess that I should’ve told the woman, after I was cussed, to give my regards to Chucky. Just in case, y’know.

  3. Z’s “nuanced Baltimore coverage” reveals good TV….good social justice TV that plainly declares that a free college education is the solution for escaping West Baltimore. In a street version of Obama’s campaign slogan, one of the teens in Blackwell’s interview says, “You can have as much hope as you want. That don’t mean it’s going to change.”
    As Zurawik admonishes the rest of cable TV for not measuring up to CNN’s “stronger sense of social consciousness in this case,”
    West Baltimore with its “drug and violence” culture is treated as a lost cause, a terminal case of self abuse, neglect and malpractice.
    Left out of Blackwell’s “inspirational” story is any discussion of the cause and a possible cure for what ails West Baltimore.

  4. Re: invitation to a lawsuit

    Kelly wasn’t married to her husband Doug when she was practicing law and he supposedly said she was aging beyond her years…

    Look what they did to Goldie Hawn. Photoshopped her looking like Jabba the Hutt.

        • He’s been under the microscope for various schemes. The diet scam was the most memorable. It would not surprise me one bit to find him tied up in this, as well.
