It was another Sunday night/early Monday of nationwide riot-cop raids against the #Occupy Wall Street protests, this time in Oakland, Portland, Salt Lake City and Denver.

Everyone who misses the Cold War, with its moral simplicity and its ever-present threat of complete nuclear annihilation, is over the moon this morning as America and the Russians kicked it old school and swapped spies!

Hundreds of protesters waved signs and flags and stuff at the Port of Oakland on Sunday because an Israeli cargo ship was coming in and this was the most important way they could protest Israel for some reason. Longshoremen refused to cross the “picket line” of weirdos because apparently it had some union backing. In […]

Sonia-Maria Sotomayor loves to brag about how “ghetto” it was growing up in Mexico. Well this loaf of white bread has heard enough! Is Sonia’s Best Friend Forever serving life in prison? Was Sonia’s daughter stabbed in the chest with an enormous cardiac needle? No? Q.E.D. [American Thinker] “Ultra liberal zealot” highschool teachers are known […]
