man got arrested for allegedly assaulting his mother with a pork chop because she hadn’t brought him cigarettes (something tells me a healthy lifestyle isn’t that important in this family.) But he just got arrested for the second time in three months on another pork chop-related charge. Either he’s totally out of control or the police are just busting his chops.
The left seems to think we should let celebrities influence our political beliefs. Okay, then what does one of the biggest stars in the world, Ringo Starr of the Beatles, have to say about all the “resistance” to Trump’s election?... Uh, hmm…Well, it turns out maybe the left doesn’t want you to be influenced by this particular celebrity’s opinion. All the more reason to click the link and read it.
Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a big load of heavy-handed PC virtue-signaling ruining Superman! Someone should tell DC Comics what happened to Marvel’s sales when they started turning their longtime superheroes into Social Justice Warriors. Hint: they dropped like Thor’s hammer.
If you were watching Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday, then you saw him interview John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor and Antifa activist Michael Isaacson. If so, then your reaction upon first sight of Isaacson was probably the same as Tucker’s: “Are you really a college professor?” And after hearing him try to explain why the First Amendment doesn’t apply to people whom you assume are going to say things that lead to violence so it’s okay to use violence to preemptively silence them, you probably thought: “No, seriously, are you REALLY a college professor?” Well, the answer to that question might soon be, “Not anymore.” It’s not a good idea to go on national TV before wiping your Twitter feed of some of the outrageous tweets that are unbecoming of a professor, like saying it’s a privilege to teach “future dead cops.” As you can see at the link, that’s just one example, but it’s enough to have New York’s largest police union demanding his firing. If he ends up having to apply for unemployment, I can already hear the clerk’s first question: “No kidding, you were REALLY a college professor?”
Friday, a federal judge sided with Chicago officials in a lawsuit against the Trump Justice Department, ruling that it can’t withhold federal grant money from “sanctuary cities” that refuse to abide by federal law and cooperate with immigration officials. And where is this federal judge? If you guessed “Chicago,” you win an autographed picture of Mike Ditka!
Last night, not far from Ferguson, Missouri, it was deja vu all over again as downtown St. Louis endured a night of protests and riots after a white former police officer was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of a black suspect following a chase in 2011. City officials anticipated the unrest, and there was a heavy police presence to keep order. Several officers were injured, and nine protesters were arrested. Former cop Jason Stockley claims he believed the suspect, Anthony Lamar Smith, was holding a gun and that his life was in danger. Detractors accuse him of planting the gun. The judge ruled that the state hadn’t proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the killing was not in self-defense. As for how strong the evidence was either way, the protesters didn’t seem to care. If you do, you’ll find more details on what happened here.
The number of people injured in the bucket bomb attack on a London subway car is now up to 29, and Britain has raised its terror alert to “critical,” the highest level. Police in Dover have arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with the attack. It's said to be a "significant" arrest. And ISIS is taking credit, although that’s yet to be proven.
Here’s a quick update on the major stories making news… Our UN Ambassador Nikki Haley points out that we’ve gone about as far with sanctions on North Korea as we can without starving innocent citizens, and Kim Jong Un continues to fire missiles, test nukes and threaten the US and his neighbors. So what’s next? Two words. You’ll find out what they are here:
