Dem. Congressman Suggests North Korea Could Smuggle Nuke Into U.S. Inside ‘Bale of Marijuana’

Brad Sherman Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) took to Twitter Wednesday to voice his fear that North Korea could smuggle a nuclear bomb into the United States – simply by hiding the devastating weapon inside a bale of marijuana. After the U.S. Senate was bussed to the White House for a briefing on North Korea, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials headed to the Capitol to brief Congress. While many Democrats slammed the briefing as little more than a photo-op, Sherman had serious questions for the Trump administration – namely, whether it’s prepared for North Korea to slip a nuclear weapon into the U.S. disguised as a large bale of marijuana. The congressman also suggested that North Korea could sell its weapons to a cash-rich Iran, and slammed the administration’s resolve as “weak.”

Berkeley Lecture Co-Sponsor: We Didn’t Abandon ‘Lying’ Ann Coulter

The president of the Young America’s Foundation, which was one of the co-sponsors of the now-cancelled Ann Coulter speech at Berkeley, struck back at the controversial author over her charge that his group and the student organizers abandoned her. “I think she’s lying about the circumstances…she still could have gone to Berkeley. She’s just looking for the cover by…not attacking the university, but by attacking Young America’s Foundation and the students who stuck their necks out,” Rob Robinson said on the syndicated Mike Gallagher Show on Thursday. Robinson later contended that “the idea that we’re a group that backs away is ludicrous to me.” Host Mike Gallagher brought on the longtime conservative activist for his reaction to Coulter’s attacks on his organization on social media and on Fox News. The YAF president emphasized that his group is at the forefront of bringing conservative speakers to campus. “This was Continue reading "Berkeley Lecture Co-Sponsor: We Didn’t Abandon ‘Lying’ Ann Coulter"

‘We Did Not Elect Ivanka’: Alex Jones Vlog Rants Against First Daughter

What’s Alex Jones up to these days? Besides a custody battle and a legal fight with Chobani yogurt, the man is live vlogging while he drives. Everyone needs to vent, you know? Today, in a clip he streamed to Facebook Live while he cruised down the street, Jones did something quite unlike his usual tactics: he tackled a topic the mainstream media is covering. Specifically, he went after Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the president. She has been elevated to a staff position in the White House, which is not really how a democracy works. “We did not elect Ivanka Trump to be the 45th President of the United States,” he said. He did, of course, defend the daughter of the candidate he pulled for in the 2016 election, adding, “I think she’s talented. She’s beautiful. I think the dresses she wears — the clothing lines are cool. I Continue reading "‘We Did Not Elect Ivanka’: Alex Jones Vlog Rants Against First Daughter"
