Megxit Done: Meghan/Harry To Repay Home Reno $$$, Won’t Use Royal Titlesby Tammy on January 18, 2020
So the details seem to be done, but as I noted on Twitter, they’ll make lots of money w books, personal appearances, speeches, selling socks & scarves, and whatever Hollywood offers. But what happens when they find out being a part of the royal family wasn’t at the core of their unhappiness? We shall see… One thing of interest to note: If anything went wrong with the relationship and they remained based in England, Markle would likely never be able to leave the country with her children, he/they would need to stay in the UK. Who would have complete custody of the great grandchildren of the Queen (and grandchildren of the next king) would also likely be an issue. With...
Surprise? Eric Swalwell To Drop Out Of Democrat Presidential Primaryby Shifra on July 8, 2019
OMG! So shocking that Eric Swalwell is dropping out of the Democrat primary race…said no one, ever. Via The Hill. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) is dropping out of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, according to a House Democratic lawmaker close to Swalwell. The congressman is expected to make a formal announcement at a press conference this afternoon. Swalwell would be the first in the crowded Democratic field to drop out…. Speculation swirled over the weekend that Swalwell would be putting an end to his campaign after he canceled Independence Day events in New Hampshire last week. A Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted June 29-July 1 showed Swalwell polling at zero percent among Democratic primary and caucus voters….

The cable news titan founded by Ted Turner in 1980 dropped to 15th place in the coveted 8 p.m.-to-11 p.m. time slot last quarter after losing 20% of its viewers, according to TV ratings tracker Nielsen. That’s five slots below where it was this time last year, Nielsen said….

Terrorist Group Hezbollah Feels Pain of Trump Iran Sanctionsby Shifra on May 20, 2019
Hezbollah gets 70% of their funding from Iran, which makes it even more enraging that Barack Hussein Obama sent billions in cash and gold to the Iranian regime. Via Daily Caller. Hezbollah has been forced to make “draconian cuts” to its expenditures as a direct result of President Donald Trump’s 2018 sanctions on Iran, according to The Washington Post. Hezbollah, a U.S.-designated terrorist group, received upwards of $700 million a year, or 70% of its revenue, from Iran in the past. But Iran’s ability to finance the Lebanese militia group has been significantly curtailed after Trump pulled out of former President Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal, WaPo reported on May 18….

Cash-Strapped United Nations Has to Hold Beg-a-Thonby PopArt on July 29, 2018
**Bumped Up From TAM Wire. Posted by PopArt** OK guys, on the count of three, let’s all break out our tiny violins and play a symphony of sympathy for our beloved cash strapped United Nations!

Reiner’s new movie, ‘Shock and Awe,’ brought in only $41,000 over the weekend. Aww. Not shocked. 🙂 Via Fox News. Liberal filmmaker Rob Reiner’s Bush administration-bashing “Shock and Awe” was a disappointment during its debut weekend with an embarrassing box office intake. “Shock and Awe” grossed only $41,000 on its opening weekend after being shown in only 100 theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. “Shock and Awe” finished No. 34 overall, behind numerous movies that have already been in theaters for several weeks, according to the service.

Palestinian Leader of Prison Hunger Strike Filmed Eating Secretly in His Cellby Shifra on May 8, 2017
This piece of human garbage is being held in an Israeli prison for the murder of five people in terrorist attacks. The NYT recently published his op-ed opinion piece, omitting the fact that he was a murderer. Isn’t it interesting how he orders everyone else to go on a hunger strike, while he enjoys a candy bar? He also sent other people out on suicide missions, but he never put on a suicide belt to carry out his own plans. Coward. Via CNS News. ….Surveillance video released by the Israel Prison Service Sunday purportedly shows Marwan Barghouti, a convicted terrorist viewed by some as a prospective future president, eating what looks like a candy bar in a bathroom stall in...
CNN Complains That a Drunk-Driving DREAMer Was Deportedby Shifra on March 29, 2017
Good! Thank you, Trump Administration! Via NewsBusters. ….If CNN was trying to make the case that innocent people were being swept up by immigration officials, then they obviously chose the wrong guy. It would be interesting to know how Mothers Against Drunk Driving would feel about Matadamas’ deportation knowing he was being held on a drunk driving charge, including evading arrest. That’s not to mention that it’s hypocritical for CNN to cherry pick this one case to champion against the Trump administration’s threat to sanctuary cities. Especially after Sunday’s Reliable Sources, where CNN’s “ridiculous figure,” Brian Stelter railed against Fox News for cherry picking the Rockville rape case to back up Trump’s calls for greater border security. Apparently, CNN picks...

UK Special Snowflakes Traumatized by Brexitby Shifra on July 3, 2016

Students have claimed they are experiencing physical trauma after UK voted to leave the European Union (EU), which could affect their ability to sit exams in the coming weeks. “Can I class Brexit as a traumatic event when I fail my exams next week? Because honestly, I’m so distracted now because of it?” posted one young scholar on a thread in theThe Student Room, called: “Does anyone else feel genuinely depressed about Brexit.” “Took about an hour for my hands to stop shaking, and for my knees to return to some semblance of working order after I saw the result this morning.

Moonbat MSNBC Anchor Acts Like A Moonbat, Boycotts Her Own Showby Shifra on February 28, 2016
That awkward moment when the host of a show throws a temper tantrum worthy of a twelve-year-old. Via NY Post: MSNBC on Friday called Melissa Harris-Perry’s decision to boycott her weekend show “really surprising, confusing and disappointing.” Harris-Perry, who hosts a two-hour show on Saturday and Sunday, made the decision because was angry that the show had been pre-empted the past two weekends — in favor of election coverage, she said in a scathing memo to her staff. Her show was back on MSNBC’s schedule this Saturday but she decided not to go on the air, saying management decided not to pre-empt it this week only to quiet media calls inquiring about her absence. “I will not be used as...

Note to self: Next time I shoot RPG, better move closer to window… Via Daily Mail: This is the moment a hopeless ISIS militant’s attempt to shoot an RPG through a small hole in a wall spectacularly backfired. Instead of shooting the shoulder-launched grenade out of the gap, the hopeless jihadi misses his target and destroys the building he is standing in. The video shows the explosive filling the room with smoke and dust – though it’s not known if the jihadi survived….
