Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist and supplement salesperson who heads Infowars, told listeners today they can look to Jesus Christ and Lazarus for inspiration fighting the supposed globalist liberal elites that want to destroy them, claiming that those who are defeated in the battle will see their spirits ascend to a higher power.
During his broadcast today, Jones claimed that the latest round of sexual assault allegations purging powerful men from their positions in media was proof the “house of cards” concealing the unlawful behavior of liberal elites was crumbling down. Jones warned that he and some of his supporters may suffer collateral damage to their own livelihoods, but urged viewers to look to Jesus Christ for inspiration.

A female Democrat running to be Michigan’s next attorney general says in a new online ad released this week that voters should support her because of her sex, but for a reason not typically seen during a political campaign.
Dana Nessel argues in her new ad, flagged by HuffPost, that Michigan residents should vote for her because they can trust that she will not show them her penis in the workplace—because she does not have one.
“If the last few weeks have taught us anything, it’s that we need more women in positions of power, not less,” she says in the ad. “So when you’re choosing Michigan’s next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so.”

A group of players in the National Football League accepted an offer from NFL owners for $100 million for social justice causes in exchange for … umm … I want to use a term that expresses the exact sentiment while still conveying a modicum of journalistic integrity. I think the most precise way to describe what the owners want in exchange for this obscene amount of cash is an Old English term called “Shutting the fuck up.”
President Donald Trump retweeted three videos posted by Christian activist, Jayda Fransen, and now she is appealing to him for assistance as she faces prison time stemming from ‘hate speech’ charges.
Trump triggered a predictable international uproar after sharing the videos which purport to show a variety of violent acts committed by Muslims around the world.
Ms. Fransen, a Christian nationalist and leading figure in the Britain First political party, seized the opportunity to highlight her predicament and issued a plea to President Trump to intercede on her behalf before she is sent to jail for up to two years if convicted for speaking out against Islam at an anti-terrorism rally in Belfast, Ireland.
Donald Trump found an unusual ally Tuesday night as Trevor Noah tackled the problematic Elizabeth Warren behavior that spawned the president’s “Pocahontas” nickname.
On Monday, during a ceremony honoring Navajo code talkers, Trump again used his nickname for Warren in derogatory fashion.
As 2017 draws to a close, the International Monetary Fund is projecting the volume of trade in goods and services will have climbed 4.2 percent over the year, up from 2.4 percent in 2016. That would be the first time trade has outpaced output growth since 2014 and harks back to the pre-crisis days when such outperformance was a regular occurrence.
Anti-fascist activists believe in dressing for the job they want. Right now, many think, that job is punching Nazis.
In late August, a crowd of thousands — primarily leftists and liberals — cascaded down Martin Luther King Jr. Way in Berkeley, Calif. They were marching on a spattering of right-wingers, Trump supporters and Nazis who were gathering under the mission to say “no to Marxism in America.” At the front of the march were about 100 people dressed in head-to-toe black.
Earlier this month, Councilwoman Cindy Bass introduced a bill to better regulate the hundreds of “stop and go” convenience stores that operate predominantly in Philadelphia’s low-income neighborhoods. Among its stipulations, the controversial measure would prohibit any physical barrier that separates cashiers from customers at these so-called “nuisance” establishments – including protective bulletproof glass.
According to Bass, these storefronts take advantage of the city’s lax restaurant liquor license provision while contributing to a variety of quality-of-life issues in low-income communities. Content to rely solely on the sale of cigarettes and alcohol, along with a bag of Doritos or two, many of these business owners don’t even sell the food that they advertise.
Children at Roman Catholic church schools in England could still be “at risk” of sexual abuse despite years of efforts to root out predators, an inquiry has heard.
The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) is examining the prevalence of paedophilia in the English Benedictine Congregation and failures in protecting young people.
But although numerous inquiries have exposed the problem of child abuse within church institutions and a string of offenders convicted, lingering safety concerns could remain, it was heard.
Did you know that the number of retail store closings in 2017 has already tripled the number from all of 2016? Last year, a total of 2,056 store locations were closed down, but this year more than 6,700 stores have been shut down so far.
That absolutely shatters the all-time record for store closings in a single year, and yet nobody seems that concerned about it. In 2008, an all-time record 6,163 retail stores were shuttered, and we have already surpassed that mark by a very wide margin. We are facing an unprecedented retail apocalypse, and as you will see below, the number of retail store closings is actually supposed to be much higher next year.
Whenever the mainstream media reports on the retail apocalypse, they always try to put a positive spin on the story by blaming the growth of Amazon and other online retailers. And without a doubt that has had an impact, but at this point online shopping still accounts for less than 10 percent of total U.S. retail sales.
