Actor Josh Brolin Says His Anus Is Sunburned After Trying ‘Perineum Sunning’

Actor Josh Brolin says that his anus is now sunburned after trying out the latest fad known as “perineum sunning,” which involves sunbathing one’s nether regions. “I don’t know who the f*ck thought of this stupid sh!t,” said the actor, expressing his dismay over his burned anus.

“Tried this perineum sunning that I’ve been hearing about and my suggestion is DO NOT do it as long as I did,” said Josh Brolin on his Instagram account over the weekend. “My pucker hole is crazy burned and I was going to spend the day shopping with my family and instead I’m icing and using aloe and burn creams because of the severity of the pain.”

Baltimore Mayor Warns Of Body "Snatching" White Van Targeting Young Girls To Sell Their Organs

Seriously WTF!

We tend to report on how Baltimore City's socio-economic crisis is sending the region into a collapse. Now there's a new report that appears to be literally from a third world country!

Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. "Jack" Young warned in an interview this week with WBAL News' Vanessa Herring that a white van has been running around the city targeting young girls for their organs, reported The Baltimore Sun.
"We're getting reports of somebody in a white van trying to snatch up young girls for human trafficking and for selling body parts, I'm told. So we have to be careful because there's so much evil going on, not just in the city of Baltimore, but around the country," Young said. "It's all over Facebook."

Buttigieg Says Illegal Aliens ‘Subsidizing Everybody Else’

Illegal migrants are subsidizing Americans, Pete Buttigieg told a December 1 meeting hosted by progressives in North Carolina.

“The uncomfortable reality is that undocumented folks are, in many ways, like Social Security, subsidizing everybody else,” Buttigieg told Rev. William Barber, a progressive activist in North Carolina. Buttigieg was at the North Carolina event to raise his abysmal poll ratings among black Americans.

Buttigieg’s dismissive comments about Americans echo the government-centric view of progressives, who tend to value Americans and illegal aliens by their payments into federal, state, and local tax programs.

But his glib claim ignores the vast economic and civic costs that illegal migration imposes on ordinary Americans — and the huge economic subsidy that is gained by wealthy investors from the inflow of cheap immigrant labor.

Schiff Impeachment Report Offers Nothing But Predetermined Conclusion

“Funny: The dueling Republican and Democratic reports on the findings of the House Intelligence Committee hearings have one big thing in common: Neither offers hard evidence that President Trump committed a single impeachable offense. Yes, Rep. Adam Schiff, who helmed the hearings, says otherwise. But he’s been seeing ‘more than circumstantial evidence’ against Trump for three years now, since the early days of the ‘collusion’ probe,” the New York Post editorial board writes.

“The GOP report accurately noted that Schiff only created a ‘misleading public narrative’ based on ‘hearsay, presumption and emotion’: Not one witness testified to the clear ‘quid pro quo’ that Democrats advertised would be exposed, nor to the ‘bribery’ they later talked of.”

“House Democrats do not seem to grasp that they cannot legitimize such an illegitimate process halfway through. This process has been unfair for the president and the Republicans from the start, with Democrats ignoring the historical precedents outlined in the Clinton and Nixon impeachments. When it comes to Trump, Democrats have created a whole new set of rules,” Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) writes in USA Today.
“‘No one is above the law,’ Speaker Nancy Pelosi insists. Now get ready for the switch: At the hearing, Democrats and their hand-picked legal experts will argue that a president can be impeached even if he hasn’t broken a law. Suddenly, impeachment isn’t about upholding the rule of law. Why the switch? Because Dems don’t have the goods to show Trump has committed a crime,” Betsy McCaughey writes in the New York Post.
“Most Americans have no idea what a health care service costs before they get it. If we expect to lower health care costs, that must change.” That’s why in June, President Trump signed an order to eliminate barriers to price and quality transparency to protect American patients, CMS Administrator Seema Verma writes in the Chicago Tribune.
“Between impeachment, all the hearings and testimonies which have essentially turned Congress into a TV courtroom, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stall tactics which have prevented Congress from taking up key priorities, partisan politics has once again taken over, and things in Washington are not getting done”—including the important U.S.–Mexico–Canada trade deal to modernize NAFTA, writes Sarah Chamberlain, CEO of the Republican Main Street Partnership, in The Washington Times.

Lefty Pundits Rage At Whiteness Of Democrats’ 2020 Candidates

The skin color of Democrat presidential frontrunners moved to the forefront of discussion among left-of-center pundits after Democrat California Sen. Kamala Harris dropped out of the race Tuesday.

Harris’s announcement means the only candidates who have qualified for the next Democrat debate are white, a fact that caused chagrin among media figures and liberal activists.

“Obviously I’m no centrist but it’s downright effed up that smart, compelling, *very* experienced, centrist Democrat candidates of color are floundering while a smart but wildly inexperienced, centrist white mayor of teeny tiny city is surging,” liberal writer Sally Kohn wrote in a tweet. “Bad look, Democrats.”

Left-wing commentator Lauren Duca implied that Democrats have a racism problem, as evidenced by Harris’s failed campaign. “White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks,” she charged.

“It’s really f__d up that straight white male billionaires (plural) are going to qualify for the next debate while Kamala Harris is leaving the race. Like, immensely,” wrote Adam Peck, a staffer at the left-wing Center for American Progress.


Kobach: Democrats Now ‘Say Out Loud’ Intent to Turn America Blue by Immigration

Former Kansas Secretary of State and United States Senate candidate Kris Kobach says the political left is now quite honest about their long-held intent to turn the nation blue through mass legal immigration.

During an exclusive interview with host Alex Marlow on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Kobach said in the past Democrats would only talk behind closed doors about their efforts to transform the nation state-by-state through immigration, but that today they are honest about the plan.

In states like Virginia — where Democrats now control all of state government — the foreign-born population has grown more than 250 percent since 1990. In 1990, Virginia was home to less than 312,000 foreign-born residents. Today, there are close to 1.1 million, almost four times what the population was three decades before.


Rush Limbaugh producer 'Bo Snerdley' founds new PAC for black conservatives

He is well-known on the air waves as “Bo Snerdley,” the senior producer for Rush Limbaugh’s daily talk radio show, heard by an audience of 14 million. His real name is James Golden, however — and he is now on a mission to “make Black Americans Republican again.”

With fellow black conservative Autry Pruitt, Mr. Golden has founded New Journey PAC, a political action committee that promotes conservative values among black Americans — and everyone else for that matter. The organization includes MAGA.BLACK, a new online destination for one and all, they say.

“For 80 years, the Democratic Party has taken the black vote for granted. Under the leadership of President Trump, Black-Americans enjoyed the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded. The Trump approach has produced an economy that works for all Americans, yet Democrats are promising more of the same — votes for crumbs. It is simply not enough to stand on the sidelines and hope for the best,” the two founders say in their mission statement.


Prostate cancer patients who eat high-fat diets and red meat are four times more likely to die

Men who eat steaks, burgers, and pizza have a higher risk of prostate cancer than their vegan peers, a new study claims.

In fact, those diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer may be able to delay or even prevent the disease from progressing using diet alone.

That's according to researchers at McGill University, who found that a gene involved in progressing prostate cancer (known as MYC) is fueled by fatty foods and red meat.

Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention Reports November Success Through Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network

Editor's note: Salisbury is at the very bottom of the list. 
ANNAPOLIS, MD – The Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) today announced another successful month for the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network (MCIN). During the month of November, law enforcement in counties across Maryland worked with other partners in order to seize narcotics, keep weapons out of the hands of violent repeat offenders, and secure convictions.
MCIN is a criminal justice strategy funded by the Hogan administration through the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention. Announced by Governor Hogan in 2017, the MCIN strategy encourages local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to collaborate and share information to target, disrupt, and dismantle gangs as well as criminal organizations involved in drug, firearm, and human trafficking operations.
“The members of the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network understand that working together is vitally important to make Maryland’s communities safer,” said Glenn Fueston, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention. "Collaboration between local, state, and federal partners is the reason Governor Larry Hogan’s initiative has disrupted and dismantled more than 100 gangs, 400 drug trafficking organizations, and dozens more criminal organizations involved in firearms and human trafficking.”

Trump Administration to Close Food Stamp Eligibility Loopholes for Able-Bodied Adults

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to announce a finalized rule Wednesday to promote self-sufficiency for able-bodied adults without children who receive food stamps.

The rule aims to close loopholes used by states that frequently grant broad exemptions for recipients to remain on food stamps longer without actively seeking a job or work training.

The Department of Agriculture’s final rule on food stamps—formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program—would affect able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 who do not have dependents. The rule wouldn’t apply to parents with minor children, the elderly, or disabled people.

The Agriculture Department notes that with the lowest unemployment rate in more than 50 years, “work-capable” Americans can find employment more easily. The unemployment rate is currently 3.6% with 7 million job openings in the United States, according to the Labor Department.


Troopers Arrest Delmar Man for “One Pot” Meth Lab-Delmar

Delmar- The Delaware State Police have arrested 32-year-old William A. Williams in connection with the manufacturing of Methamphetamine (Meth).
On December 3, 2019 at approximately 3:00 p.m., members of the Governor’s Task Force (GTF) were contacted by Probation and Parole, after they located components indicative of a one-pot methamphetamine lab in a detached shed during an administrative warrant for offender, William Williams.

'Annual holiday tradition': Stephanie Grisham slams media for criticizing 'all that the First Lady does'

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham criticized the media for what she described as a pattern of attacks directed at first lady Melania Trump during the holiday season.

The remarks stem from fashion pieces in the Washington Post that were critical of Trump's outfit and her Christmas decorations around the White House.

"It has become an annual holiday tradition for the media to attack all that the First Lady does. If this was a Democratic Administration, I suspect Mrs. Trump and her work would be featured positively in every mainstream news outlet," Grisham told Brian Flood of Fox News in response to the Washington Post's story.


Two youths are arrested after an off-duty officer is brutally attacked by a gang as he tried to help a woman

Two youths were arrested after an off-duty officer was brutally beaten by a gang when he intervened to stop them from stealing a woman's phone.

The incident happened when a young woman approached a gang of youths who allegedly stole her cellphone at around 8 pm at Bay Street Mall, California on Black Friday.

When she asked for her phone back, the gang became aggressive and began to assault her.

An off-duty California Highway Patrol officer, who wanted only to be identified as Greg P, then intervened to help the woman and the group subsequently began to violently assault him.

Drug Cartels Invade Quiet Mexican Town Packed With Americans

The failures of the nationalist Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) are starting to be realized in a huge way.

First, the economy is decelerating, second, murders across the country are hitting record highs, and third, there are small towns filled with Americans that cartels are now invading.

Mexico's economy entered a recession in 1H19, AMLO promised to "Make Mexico Great Again," though an economic downturn has unfolded and has derailed his beautiful plans of revitalization.

An imploding economy comes at a time of worsening cartel wars and record homicides, a story we've been documenting for the past five years. So far this year, 28,741 people have been killed as the socio-economic crisis deepens.

President Trump is ready to designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist groups, and this will one day allow the US military to fight drug cartels on Mexican soil.


Conservative Media Isn’t ‘Stoking’ The Culture War, It’s The Left

A recent Voxsplainer aimed at breaking down the “War Against Thanksgiving” to bespectacled urbanites referred, mostly in passing, to the “culture war-stoking conservative media.” This is adorable, and for two particular reasons.

First, because its matter-of-fact presentation demonstrates how deeply this notion is embedded as conventional wisdom on the center-left. Second, because it’s so obviously stupid.

Of course, it’s the Fox-guzzling conservative rubes stoking the culture war, those reactionary pitchfork wielders who burn Howard Zinn books and listen to Blake Shelton sing about trucks. Or perhaps it’s the fault of cynical Beltway operators who exploit the anxieties of Flyover simpletons for profit and power.


Betsy DeVos Suggests Federal Student Aid Should Be A ‘Standalone’ Entity

U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos delivered prepared remarks at a training conference for Federal Student Aid (FSA). FSA, bureaucratically housed within the U.S. Department of Education (DOE), is the office responsible for doling out “more than $120 billion a year in grants, work-study funds, and low-interest loans to approximately 13 million students,” according to the DOE’s website. According to the site, more than 21 million students last year applied for federal student aid in some form. FSA dates back to 1965, when its mission was established by the Higher Education Act.

DeVos suggested that FSA be bureaucratically restructured as a “standalone government corporation”:

"One has to wonder: Why isn’t FSA a standalone government corporation, run by a professional, expert, and apolitical Board of Governors?"

Structural reform at the FSA — and re-evaluating how the federal government entangles itself in the student loan enterprise, more generally — ought to be music to the ears of conservatives.

Conservatives routinely assail the perverse incentive structures that lead many quixotic teens to take out large-scale loans en route to all-too predictable and ubiquitous leftist indoctrination on the university campus. Here is how Inez Feltscher Stepman articulated the sentiment earlier this year for the Claremont Institute’s American Mind site:

"William F. Buckley wrote God and Man at Yale seven decades ago. Yet the university system still enjoys full public financial backing as though it had not degenerated from the elevated institution of yesteryear into an archipelago of training camps for Leftist activism. Whether Democrats or Republicans are in charge, Congress continues to increase its student loan investments, the lifeblood that has enabled insane cost increases well above inflation rates, as well as billions in direct grants to universities. …"


Trump's opponents keep shifting their position on Ukraine's 2016 interference

It would be really helpful for Democrats and liberals in the national media to get their story straight in the debate over whether Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election. Right now, they have four different and contradictory stories, and that makes it all but impossible to, you know, have an actual debate.

Their initial position was to deny that any meddling by Ukraine took place at all. The problem with that is the New York Times broke the story in 2016 that an entire Ukrainian government agency was investigating Paul Manafort, who at the time was serving as Trump's campaign chairman.

Back then, the paper reported that Ukraine’s "newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau," which worked in conjunction with America's FBI, was in possession of a mysterious, handwritten diary that showed Manafort was receiving millions of dollars in payments from one of the country's pro-Russian politicians. "Investigators assert," the Times reported, "that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials."

Nunes sues CNN over 'demonstrably false' Ukraine report

Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has filed a $435 million defamation suit against CNN over a story that alleged Nunes met with a fired Ukrainian prosecutor in an effort to dig up dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The story — "Giuliani associate willing to tell Congress Nunes met with ex-Ukrainian official to get dirt on Biden" — was published Nov. 22. It was based on the words of Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Ukrainian-born Lev Parnas, who worked closely with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani in pursuing allegations of Ukrainian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election as well as allegations of corruption in Ukraine involving Biden's son Hunter. Parnas is currently under indictment on campaign finance charges.

CNN reported that Bondy said Parnas was "willing to tell Congress" that in December 2018, Nunes traveled to Vienna to meet with Viktor Shokin, the top Ukrainian prosecutor who was famously fired in 2016 under pressure from the United States, represented by Biden, who said Shokin did not do enough to prosecute corruption in Ukraine. CNN cited congressional travel records showing Nunes and a few aides traveled to Europe between Nov. 30 and Dec. 3, 2018.


Turns out Schiff hired whistleblower's best buddy right after that famous phone call

House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff hired whistleblower Eric Ciaramella's best buddy, NSC aide Sean Misko, one day after that famous Ukraine phone call that started it all.

The Washington Examiner's Kerry Picket did some impressive digging and just came out with this:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff hired a former National Security Council aide who worked with alleged Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella at the NSC during the Obama and Trump administrations the day after the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

It was previously reported by the Washington Examiner that public records indicated Sean Misko, 37, started work on Schiff's committee in August as a professional staff member. A specific start date was not available until this week, when the latest congressional quarterly disbursements were released.

The new records show that Misko's official hire date was July 26.

Misko was the director for the Gulf States at the NSC between 2015 until the first half of 2018. The Washington Examiner has established that the whistleblower is a CIA officer who was on the NSC during the Obama administration and worked on Ukrainian issues with Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic candidate, when he was vice president.

Ciaramella, 33, is a career CIA analyst and was the Ukraine director on the NSC from 2016 until the summer of 2017. In October 2016, he was Biden's guest at a State Department banquet.

Picket reported earlier that the two of them were a-hole buddies, "bro-like" in their extended friendship, united together in all things anti-Trump.

Nadler: Trump's participation in impeachment hearings has been a 'priority' from 'the outset'

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler criticized President Trump’s decision not to testify in Wednesday's public impeachment hearing, saying his participation “has been a priority for the House from the outset.”

The committee will hold a hearing featuring four constitutional scholars who will provide their viewpoints on impeaching Trump for abuse of power, obstruction of Congress, and other offenses related to his effort to get Ukraine government officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

The hearing provides Trump or White House counsel the first chance to participate and defend the president against allegations that Democrats have been investigating for weeks.


Cartel Gunmen Crossed into Texas Before Deadly Attack That Killed 22

The Governor of Coahuila, a Mexican state bordering Texas, revealed that approximately 150 cartel gunmen illegally snuck into Texas through dirt roads and the border river as they made their way to the Mexican town of Villa Union for an hours-long shootout that killed 23 individuals–including four cops and two firefighters.

Coahuila Governor Miguel Angel Riquelme revealed that state authorities arrested two gunmen from the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas who disclosed their convoy consisted of approximately 25 SUVs carrying at least six shooters apiece, Zocalo reported. The gunmen took various dirt roads as they made their way to Villa Union, where they fired repeatedly at the city hall building, torched police cars, and then engaged authorities in a fierce gun battle.

In a series of statements made by Riquelme, the politician claimed that as the gunmen traveled through dirt roads from the border city of Nuevo Laredo, they planned to burn buildings and terrorize the community. According to El Norte, the publication spoke with a government spokesman who confirmed the information from the captured gunmen who said the convoy briefly crossed into Texas before engaging in targets back in Mexico.

'Slightly delinquent, I would say': Trump slams Canada over low NATO defense spending

President Trump admonished Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for not contributing enough to the NATO military alliance.

“Where are you now in terms of your number?” Trump asked Trudeau on Tuesday during a press gaggle at the summit.

"1.4 (GDP), and continuing to move forward," the Canadian leader replied.

“They’re getting there," Trump responded.

Wednesday Morning Funnies


Dear husband,

I'm writing this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you.

I've been a good wife to you for the last 20 years and feel I have nothing to show for it, and the last 2 weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you left your job today, which was the last straw.

Last week, you came home and didn't even notice I had a new hairstyle, had cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new nightie. You ate in 2 minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching your TV shows. You don't tell me you love me anymore; you don't want sex or anything else that connects us as husband and wife.

Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore; whatever the case, I'm gone.

Your Ex-Wife.

Don't try to find me. Your brother and I are moving to New Zealand together.

Have a great life!

------------------------------ ---------------


Dear Ex-wife,

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter.

It's true you and I have been married for 20 years, although a good woman is a far cry from what you've been. The reason I watch TV so much is because it drowns out your constant whining and bitching. Unfortunately, that doesn't work any more.

I DID notice when you got a hair-do last week, but the 1st thing that came to my mind was 'You look just like a boy.' Since my father taught me not to say anything, 'if you can't say something nice, etc.,' I didn't comment....and when you cooked my "favorite meal," you must have confused me with MY BROTHER because I haven't eaten prawns for years.

About the new nightie: I turned away from you because the $299.99 price tag was still on it, and I prayed it was only a coincidence that my brother had borrowed $300 from me just that morning.

After all this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out. So, when I won the $20 million Lotto on Saturday; I left my job and bought 2 tickets for us to Paris........ But when I got home you were gone.

Everything happens for a reason, I guess I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dollar from me. So take care.


Your Rich As Hell and Free Ex-Husband.

P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my brother Carl was born

I hope this doesn't present a problem.
