Yes to every word of this: “5 reasons I will not vote for Trump if he is the GOP nominee”

“Bernie promises the same free stuff we’ve been promised for a century…and there’s the problem.”

“Now explain to me how you assholes have such a rough intellectual time of it when you pretend to try to understand the Benghazi YouTube video cover-up?”

Flynn admits what we all knew: Obama ignored ISIS warnings because it didn’t fit re-elect ‘narrative’

Oh shut the fuck up

Absurd that you need a court’s permission for this

On the irrational hatred of the Victorian era

Freaking amazing:

The masters of Harvard’s 12 undergraduate residential Houses have unanimously “expressed a desire” to change their title—which some students have criticized as associated with slavery—Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana said on Tuesday. College and House administrators will soon meet to select a new name to replace the “House master” title, according to Khurana, who informed the Faculty of this decision at its monthly meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

Eye roll. This generation really does seem to think you can troll people to death.

What an incredible man:

The Nazi soldiers made their orders very clear: Jewish American prisoners of war were to be separated from their fellow brothers in arms and sent to an uncertain fate. But Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds would have none of that. As the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer held in the German POW camp, he ordered more than 1,000 Americans captives to step forward with him and brazenly pronounced: “We are all Jews here.” He would not waver, even with a pistol to his head, and his captors eventually backed down.

Seventy years later, the Knoxville, Tennessee, native is being posthumously recognized with Israel’s highest honor for non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during World War II. He’s the first American serviceman to earn the honor…It’s a story that remained untold for decades and one that his son, the Rev. Chris Edmonds, only discovered long after his father’s death in 1985.

Rahm: I won’t resign because the “voters spoke” in an election which I gamed by suppressing the dash cam video.

Chicago has paid out $521 million to settle police brutality cases in the last ten years alone.

Indeed. Rahm is the mayor Chicagoans deserve: “People in Chicago may be unhappy with their schools, their police, their public finances, their roads and sidewalks, and the 2,700-and-counting shootings in their streets, but they are not victims of corruption at city hall: They are partners in that corruption. And they’re getting what’s coming to them.”

ROFL Bullshit

This is what happens when you elect someone who has never managed anything in his entire life. He can’t even manage his own security, FFS.

A man masquerading as a member of Congress walked into a secure backstage area without being properly screened and spoke with President Obama at an awards dinner last fall. Five days later, a woman walked backstage unchecked at a gala dinner where Obama was a featured guest. Months after that, two people strolled unnoticed past a Secret Service checkpoint into the first layer of the White House grounds. The incidents were among a half-dozen previously undisclosed security breaches since 2013 that were detailed in an extensive, bipartisan congressional investigation of the inner workings of the Secret Service.

Congratulations, student protestors, you just got used.
