    1. You trolling us, Eugene?

      1. No, it is the inevitable decline of service that stems from a prolonged lack of competition.

        1. Not everyone gets performance art, I guess.

    2. This is the depth of commentary we get when Robby does the lynx.

    3. Who cares. Who cares being a name of a troll from yesterday.

      1. Who trolled us yesterday?

        Who cares.

        No, I really wanna know.

        Who cares.

        1. Who’s on first!

    4. Hello.

      Michael Moore that fat head fat ass commie, huh. I’m sure the critics will just love him as they do all his films. Funny though, not that I watched it but I notice a good number of critics who savaged ‘Hillary’s America’ claimed the facts were all wrong. Suddenly facts matter when a conservative makes a movie. Not so much when a lefty does it.

      http://bit.ly/2axexNL

      1. Suddenly facts matter when a conservative makes a movie. Not so much when a lefty does it.

        An inconvenient truth.

        1. When I would point out the facts put forth by Fat Ass were easily refuted and debunked I was assured I was missing the ‘big picture’ and that it was more about art. Except when it’s not.

          Idiots.

          1. I am a comedian on a channel that features puppet shows!

            Except when I am being considered for a real news anchor gig.

      2. Hello.

        1. Nice handle. You new or is this just a makeover?

          1. I’m new. Something of a lurker previously, not a regular poster.

            1. Welcome aboard. I’ll show you around later during primetime. Remember that nausea is normal at all times and projectile vomiting is typical during or after reading Sug’s works.

      3. Oh Michael Moore, you scoundrel.

        1. 4000 cheeseburgers ago.

          1. He’s just claiming the proletariat’s rightful number of cheeseburgers.

        2. Ol’ MM: Once an idiot scumbag, always an idiot scumbag.

  1. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie.

    I hope they finally make him and Bucky boyfriends.

    1. That was so stupid. But everything those people think is really stupid.

    2. DeCraprio is getting too old for your twink fantasies!

      1. After the Revenant, I thought Leo was more of a bear?

        1. You are what you eat rapes you?

  2. A chilling vision of things to come if Donald Trump were to win the election.

    Racist militias will roam the wastelands of the former United States as Supreme Leader Klinton reluctantly declares martial law in a vain attempt to arrest the descent into chaos.

      1. That reminded me of the wide-eyed predictions that the ghettos would be on fire if Obama ever lost one of his elections.

        1. You can’t prove they wouldn’t have been.

          BTW I’m still waiting for my good calcium and bones to arrive.

            1. I did, and I ain’t got squat.

              In fact, I think I’ve developed osteoporosis.

              1. I think I’ve developed osteoporosis

                You misspelt, “impotence,” Jimbo.-)

            2. Thank him? Jimbo tried to BONE him! Jimbo apparently doesn’t know how any of this works

              1. Jesus.

                Include a “spook warning” next time.

                1. I can’t see youtube links at work so I’ll assume it’s some kind of gay porn.

                  1. You fuckboys aren’t ready for defcon 2spooky.

                  2. I can’t see youtube links at work so I’ll assume it’s some kind of gay porn.

                    It looks JUST LIKE YOU! (Yes, this is Jimbo at “work”) I realise it’s hard for you to view life through cum covered glasses, Jim. SAD!

          1. Aren’t they?

      2. That’s one guy who should lay off the sugary cereal.

        Just like climate change. NOTHING WILL FUCKEN HAPPEN you hysterical hyenas.

        Love how all of a sudden these folks fall back on history to draw analogies in depicting Trump as Hitler.

        It’s retardation in all its macabre magnificence.

      1. I believe the term we settled on was “cunted.”

        1. Call me old fashioned, then.

        2. I prefer to keep with the name (not Sug’s). Noobs will figure out the other part soon enough.

    1. Donald Trump will break HTML linking?

    2. Christ these people, the journalistas, are unhinged.

    3. Racist militias will roam the wastelands of the former United States as Supreme Leader Klinton reluctantly declares martial law in a vain attempt to arrest the descent into chaos.

      So Judge Dredd was right?

      1. I am the Law! – Judge _______

    1. Do they not understand time value of money over there in Paddyland?

      1. They only understand drinking and potatoes.

        1. “The classic Irish man’s dilemma: Do I eat the potato or do I let it ferment so I can drink it later?”

          1. Da, does this mean I won’t be getting the operation?

    2. The UK bookies had Trump at 3/1 for the past few weeks. If I could have, I’d have bet a couple hundred on that.

  3. Check out Drudge.

    That is all.

    1. Big if true.

      1. October Surprise, surprise, surprise!

    2. I learned from Men in Black that the tabloids are the only ones that do real investigative reporting.

      1. Enquiring minds want to know!

      2. They’re also the only news organization that bothered investigating the rumors about John Edwards cheating on his wife.

    3. I didn’t click through to the Enquirer – is there any meat or is this just a headline?

      1. There’s meat — and it ain’t loafing!

        1. So, Shrill-Bot would do anything for love, eh?

      2. There is a meat maw.

      3. Basically a headline for a story they’re releasing tomorrow, no actual details for now. So for now it is just interesting if true. .

    4. It’s the National Enquirer, so spades of skepticism, but since they did break the John Edwards adultery story there is a scintilla of possibility that they actually have something.

  4. Nothing about the O’Keefe videos?

    1. Of course not. Worry not, Froot Sooshi is still furiously masturbating to the memory the he, HE!, Froot Sooshi, Investigative Journalist Heir Apparent to Radley Balko, OUTED James O’Keefe at some Shrill-Bot political rally or somesuch. Don’t harsh on Froot Sooshi’s O’Keefe boner.

      1. Shouldn’t that be “hair” apparent? Lulz. Hi, Doc.

      2. HE OUTED THE MICK FUCK REAL GOOD. Make sure everyone knows. Tell your family and friends.

    2. The Reason guys are taking some time off from voting for Hildog multiple times to make the case that our elections are entirely on the up and up.

      1. Yes, real libertarians vote for Trump instead of Johnson so really they are in the bag for Hillary.

      2. DD, do you ever get tired of being a completely bonkers asshat?

    1. You are not Rufus. Stop that.

      1. I can’t control this keyboard sometimes. I’m not as young as I used to be. Or maybe I was so much older then I’m younger than that now. Or something.

  5. Melania Trump says Donald isn’t responsible for his gross comments.

    Tourette Syndrome. I knew it.

    1. I thought the left liked sexual misconduct. Sure seems to, anyway.

      1. Only when done by the right kind of predators…

        1. As long as you’re pro-abortion, it’s OK.

          1. Hell, if you promise to keep abortion legal, they’ll just LET you do it. They’ll let you do anything!

            (or am I mixing my scumbaggery here?)

    2. Well, Obama isn’t responsible for anything he does; it’s those eeeeevil Republicans who make him do it.

    3. One of my colleagues blames his, um, outbursts on Stress-Induced Tourette Syndrome.

  6. Bernie Sanders was 39th (last) on a list of potential running mates for Hillary Clinton.

    After the veep debate, they might have been wondering if he shouldn’t have been bumped up.

    1. *Slow pull-in on Bernie reading the list, slash cut to his name at the very bottom*

      *Cue Curb Your Enthusiasm theme music*

        1. I wanna watch an episode where Sanders complains about there being too many choices on the menu. Then he goes to take a piss and gets lost and ends up walking onto the stage where people mistake him for a symphony conductor. So he has to play along and conduct, all the while getting more frantic because he has to piss.

    2. Right under Hrundi V. Bakshi.

      1. Bernie num nums?

        1. Nailed it, Greg.

  7. Hillary Clinton could have shared the Democratic presidential ticket with Bill Gates ? or with his wife, Melinda.

    Business people without public servant experience?

    Puh-leeeeeeease!

  8. Melania Trump says Donald isn’t responsible for his gross comments.

    The rat that lives under his hair, controlling his every move, is.

    1. Anyone can cuck?

      1. 8/10, would LOL again.

      2. Oh, bravo, madame, bra-vo.

        *polite applause*

    2. Demoratatouille.

    1. Hopefully they are aware of it and are trying to vet it before reporting on it. But they could have included it in AM or PM links as “unconfirmed.”

      1. They could, but that would be an acknowledgement that it exists. I’m sure we’ll get a cursory post on it in a few weeks.

        1. Matt Welch: “THERE. We covered it.”

          Commentariat: “But that was barely two paragraphs replete with vague statements and deflections.”

          Matt Welch: “DRINK!”

          1. That’s about right…

            Hey, can we post emojis yet?

            1. Hey, can we post emojis yet?

              God, i hope not. If you think Rico is half-assing the Linx now…

        2. Ha! Well-played.

    2. I am fairly certain that Reason will be all over this when the time is right, heck they’re probably writing up a major article about this right now, because they’re totally not helping to carry Hilary’s water.

      Or maybe they won’t cover it because they’re super bummed that all those articles they wrote about the violence of the Trump campaign and his supporters would appear incorrect. We wouldn’t Robby to be forced to issue an insincere retraction now would we?

      1. Humble pie is hard for everyone to swallow, but most especially for accredited journalists with the correct pedigree.

      2. Remember when that trump henchman ripped that lady reporter’s arm off and beat her with it while trump raped her?

        1. Vividly. Robby told me so.

      3. And the people who knew this was bullshit are still derided as idiot trumpkins, while the people who shat their pants over this false narrative are still up on their high horses tsk tsking the rabble.

      4. Given that O’Keefe has a history of maliciously editing his videos, they’re probably taking their time to verify everything. That’s hardly unreasonable. If O’Keefe was a left-wing activist with the exact same history who had a similar video exposing people on the right, the video would probably be instantly discredited in the eyes of a lot of people here.

        1. I’m glad you’re always around to give the prog perspective.

          1. Yes, anyone that doesn’t agree lockstep with your opinions must be a prog.

            O’Keefe is not trustworthy. That doesn’t mean that the video is a non-story, but it is good reason to be wary of the possibility of deceptive editing and to take that into account in vetting and writing a story about it.

            1. With all due respect, I’ll buy that excuse as soon as Reason implements the same protocols for articles from Salon, CNN, Slate, and MSNBC.

              1. What undercover videos of those outlets has Reason reported on? I don’t see why the comparison would be to an article. And I would say that in general, people should definitely try to look at full footage of stuff like this regardless of source, but especially from a guy like O’Keefe. I’ll throw in Michael Moore to give a left-wing example.

                1. I don’t see why the comparison would be to an article.

                  Because the facts are what are in question, not the style of presentation. I’m not saying that we just accept the video as the unadulterated truth, but let’s not pretend that Slate, Salon, CNN and MSNBC don’t also have massive trustworthiness issues. I doubt Reason spends much time vetting the claims and sources in an average CNN or Salon story.

                  1. Even if selectively edited, the people in the video directly and unequivocally say some pretty damning things.

                2. Those videos must be CGI or something. That’s not a retarded position to take.

            2. Do you realize Reason posted a trump bashing article based on a fake tweet? And you’re talking about vetting before posting?

            3. Yes, anyone that doesn’t agree lockstep with your opinions must be a prog.

              No, he’s right on the money. That’s the thought that crosses my mind damn near every time I see you post or interact with you. You accept the progressive version of history, of social relations, of human nature, of ethics and their identity politics. You’re just less of statist in the economic sense, but other than that the shoe fits. For you and a few others on these boards.

        2. Given that O’Keefe has a history of maliciously editing his videos

          Except that he doesn’t.

          He provides the good stuff up front in short videos while making all footage available.

          So he couldn’t ‘maliciously edit’ without catching himself.

          But thanks for playing, please pick up your consolation prizes on the way out.

  9. Michael Moore will soon be streaming an anti-Trump film, just in time for the election. Two words: Citizens United.

    Streaming? Is this the political equivalent of ‘straight-to-dvd’?

    1. Direct to streaming is the modern day equivalent of standing on a street corner with a sandwich board reading “THE END IS NIGH” preaching to anyone unfortunate to walk by.

      1. So, Joe from Lowell during the global warming threads.

    2. I believe the proper spelling is ‘steaming’.

  10. Bernie Sanders was 39th (last) on a list of potential running mates for Hillary Clinton

    You don’t necessarily need a choice of 39 running mates when there are hungry children in this country.

    1. No one needs more than… never mind.

      1. Jack Benny sure didn’t.

    2. Gotta hand it to Hillary, she cornholed Bernie even worse than Trump. At least Trump got in a few good shots on her before he went down.

      1. …before he went down

        Ewwww….

        1. SugarFree’s own Oatmeal and Pleasure Raisin cookies. I bet you can’t eat even one.

          1. Lumpy.

  11. Send more Chuck Berry

    He’s 90 today, and has an album coming out next year (first studio album in 37 years).

    http://www.foxnews.com/enterta…..years.html

    1. And he still loves watching women poop!

      1. I miss Spy magazine — I shared the Chuck Berry article with everyone I know. “Here comes my breakfast!” is an amazing line.

        1. Yeah, some good stuff. I remember when they faked a jailbait profile, sent it to a number of celebrities trying to hook up, but Wilt Chamberlain was the only one who responded looking for further contact.

    2. Berry is likely retired from touring, but anything can happen.

      Come *on*, Chuck! Show Jagger you can still Duck Walk!

      1. It wouldn’t surprise me if he really could still duck walk. Hell, I saw him live ~20 years ago, and he put on a live show better than guys a third his age.

    3. He’s the best.

    4. Holy shit! He’s still alive?

      1. Yes, the fact he is still and kicking left me speechless also.

  12. I’m discussing political correctness and the 2016 election with CNN’s Sally Kohn and Mic’s Jamila King.

    They probably would forgive the dropping of the h at the end of her name if Roberto showed up being the Hispanic ethnic they were expecting.

  13. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie.

    Unironically, I assume. And he’ll take a private jet to the premiere, I’m sure.

    1. His plane runs on supermodel queefs.

      1. So basically it can stay in the air indefinitely.

  14. Tonight at the UnConvention in New York City: I’m discussing political correctness and the 2016 election with CNN’s Sally Kohn and Mic’s Jamila King. Tickets here.

    *Jamilah* King.

    Nonchalantly misspelling a woman of color’s first name? Hello problematic white privilege.

    1. It’s worse than asking about her hair.

    2. He is LITERALLY invalidating her existence!

    3. Inventing a weird first name and then getting upset when people don’t remember how it’s spelled is almost as bad as inventing a new pronoun and demanding that everyone use it.

      1. This.

        At least you learn at a young age how to say “apostrophe”.

        1. Not anymore, Rich. The SJW’s (What I did theres, didja sees it?) have determined showing ownership of anything is the refuge of BadWrongthinkniks and violates Teh Collective SafeSpace.

      2. Dkxxcli don’t like your tone!

      3. RACIST

    4. Write it in it’s original Arabic abjad or don’t write it at all, I say.

        1. And I better not catch you writing Aidan, Aiden, Aedan, Aeden or whatever the fuck in anything other than the original Ogham. As well as Brayden, Cayden, Dayden, Eaden, Fayden, Gaiden, Hayden, Iiden, Jayden, Kayden, Laiden, Maiden, Nayden, Oiden, Paiden, Quaiden, Rayden, Sayden, Taiden, Uiden, Vayden Wayden Xaiden, Yayden, and Zaiden. (That covers the entirety of the official White Person Name List for 2000-2010, right?)

          1. Cayden

            I guess someone’s Mulatto privilege is finally shining through:

            Caden is a given name popular in the United States and Canada in recent years. It is used for both boys and girls, but is most popular for boys. It is possibly derived from the surname Mac Cad?in, meaning “son of Cad?n”, a name possibly derived from the boy named Cayden Patterson, and Irish name Cath?n, meaning “battle.”[1] It is a name with several alternative spellings, including: Cadan, Caedan, Caiden, Caedyn, Caydan, Cayden, Kadan, Kaden, Kaedan, Kaeden, Kaiden, Kaedyn, Kaydan, Kayden

            1. *phew*

              I thought you were going to reference this.

              1. That child is not that beautiful.

            2. Gayden

  15. Michael Moore will soon be streaming an anti-Trump film, just in time for the election.

    Why the hell bother?

    1. He needs money?

      1. He’s sitting on cash, loads of cash. He’s hoarding all the cash! We need to take our cash back!

      1. He does it for the free meals.

        1. The older that dude gets, the more like Jabba The Hutt’s uglier, semi-retarded cousin he looks.

        2. The police in Casper would like a word.

        3. +1 completely ruined craft table

    2. Hey, I’m sure there are tons of people who watch Michael Moore movies and are thinking about voting for Trump. It just SEEMS like this is Michael Moore’s version of masturbation.

  16. Michael Moore will soon be streaming an anti-Trump film, just in time for the election. Two words: Citizens United.

    Everyone will trust and believe the contents of the film because Michael Moore is widely regarded as a teller of truth and virtue.

    1. Meh, he started going down the Cindy Sheehan road a while ago.

      1. At least Sheehan didn’t disappear after Obama’s election like most of the anti-war left.

        1. Cindy who?!

          1. Yes, that’s what the mainstream press said when she didn’t fall in line.

            1. They told her that they had to fix but one light on the tree, and then they would bring everything back and make it just as it was. Poor, poor Cindy.

              1. I see, a Grinch reference.

                1. You win a Kewpie Doll!

              2. *nods and applauds gently*

      2. In one of Matt Taibbi’s books he noted how disheartening it was for him to interview Code Pink protesters — he being an anti-war lefty — because the majority of them were also 911 truthers.

        So, apt.

  17. Michael Moore will soon be streaming an anti-Trump film, just in time for the election. Two words: Citizens United.

    I can’t wait to see Hillary, and the left in general, condemn the fuck out of this.

    I bet I get alt-text first.

    1. Hahahaha
      Oh you were serious.

  18. I don’t think there is an October surprise that can really impact the election at this point. Hell, Trump and Clinton could unzip their skinsuits and reveal that they are actually Kang and Kodos and it would be met with a resounding “meh”.

    1. Well, I believe I’ll vote for a third party candidate.

      1. Go ahead! Throw your vote away!

        1. Don’t blame me I voted for Kodos.

  19. At the Mosul Front: Traps, Smoke Screens and Suicide Bombers

    Islamic State militants quickly showed that they were not going to abandon the villages without a fight: They unleashed at least five suicide vehicle bombs ? the militant force’s take on precision-guided weapons.

    Near the village of Badana, one vehicle packed with explosives streaked toward the Kurdish positions. A blast and a billowing plume of white smoke proclaimed its fate: Either a ground-fired missile or airstrike had abruptly halted the suicide run, short of its target.

    The monumental challenge that lies ahead was becoming clear. After all, the ultimate objective of the combined assault is not to clear largely depopulated villages, but to reclaim a city of more than a million people that is defended by as many as 4,500 Islamic State fighters. In preparation, the militants have filled trenches with oil, built tunnels and planted copious improvised bombs along the roads to the city and on the streets within it.

  20. Kind of interesting.

    The list of Democratic VP “food groups” is clearly organized by race, gender first with some additional categories thrown in at the end.

    I guess since Trump went white male governor she felt safe with Kaine.

  21. (recyclejoke)

    “I’m discussing political correctness and the 2016 election with CNN’s Sally Kohn and Mic’s Jamila King.””


    *They’re still trying to find someone to take the “con” side of the argument

    1. Robby’s gotten pretty good at tweaking the commentariat here–maybe there’s hope that he and The Golden, Glittering Mane will actually send Kohn into seizures.

      1. Are you kidding? He buys his official SJW Indulgences from her to retain his water his SJW Cred with all the RightGoodthinkniks.

      2. “”.””Robby’s gotten pretty good at tweaking the commentariat here””

        You’re attributing to wit what is more-easily explained by sincere inanity.

        Its like some cousin of Poe’s Law.

        1. You watch–she’ll post a hysterical tweet-storm about how his refusal to embrace rape-culture whole-heartedly and his luscious locks made her briefly consider not being a lesbian.

  22. This isn’t the worst PM links ever, but it definitely sucks.

    1. At least their links work.

    2. What are four words you don’t want to hear right after you finished blowing Leonardo DiCaprio?

      I’m not Leonardo DiCaprio.

      1. So who was it, Crusty?

    3. Forget it, Ken, it’s Robby Town.

      1. Should we encourage him as, for once, he didn’t post 5 links devoted to his monomanic hobby horse?

        1. It’s a one-off, HM. Nothing, but NOTHING will keep him from riding his Robby Horses. It’s like the one day some Mackey D’s swilling lard ass happens to eat a salad because it mistakenly was included in the Extra Value Meal instead of Super Sized Fries.

          Also, keep up calcium awareness, HM; I find your links quite entertaining…

        2. his monomanic hobby horse?

          “Mousse vs Gel”?

    4. Godzilla could be tap-dancing on Tokyo and Robby would still prioritize “”someone makes ‘gross’ remarks. In private. A decade ago”” as being the noteworthy topic of the day

      1. How has a story that has dramatically changed the presidential election not noteworthy?

        1. Sorry, were you referring to the unreported wikileaks dumps, or something more serious?

          1. #phakeSkenndull

            1. “”but how can he not cover what everyone is covering? And ignore what everyone is ignoring? Duh- that’s how journalism *works*!! Geez, next you’ll suggest “public interest” isn’t just what people are *interested* in. Why *wouldn’t* you want a libertarian political mag to just recycle contrived MSM narratives?? “”

            2. To: Trshmnstr From: Hrod [C]

              As a frequent handle-tweaker, might I say: Bravo!

              1. Thanks! I don’t typically go topical, but I couldn’t resist.

      2. I’ll thank you to leave me out of this.

    5. I dunno, I never read the links in the old days. I just commented, freestyle.

      1. It used to be about interesting stuff that happened during the day that impacted libertarian interests in some way that you might have missed.

        That’s what it still is when Shackleford or someone interesting does it.

        When Robby does it, like waffles said the other day, it just seems to be whatever Robby has open on his browser at the moment.

        PM links for Robby is a chore like taking out the trash. If nobody yelled at him, he probably wouldn’t bother.

        1. I’m still convinced he posts them from the driver’s seat of his Aztek on his way to the bar after work.

        2. I always figured a worthy topic would generate its own discussion. If not, I’d just talk about, I dunno, something random. Like a Dune/Sanford and Son mash-up.

          1. Like a Dune/Sanford and Son mash-up.

            Wait, is that something? Is that a thing? Can we make that a thing?

            1. Wait, is that something? Is that a thing? Can we make that a thing?

              You…You don’t know of the Litany Against Ugly????

              Pro’L Dib, lead this man into the Desert…

            2. I must not see ugly. Ugly is the taste-killer. Ugly is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face away from your ugly. I will permit it to pass over there and away from me. And when it has gone past I will turn a squinting eye to see its path. Where the ugly has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

              Gods below, you ugly.

              1. Paul Atreides, you dummy.

          2. You hear that Duncan Idaho? I’m coming to join you honey!

        3. That’s what it still is when Shackleford or someone interesting does it.

          Is it part of some long-running joke to add letters to Shackford’s name?

          1. Yup

          2. Not even the writers’ names are immune to the wiles of John’s keyboard.

      2. You’re teh Kwittheshitz Hadenough, Pro’L Dib, The Commenter Who Knows Many Links at Once. You didn’t have to bother reading the links. Prescience, it’s a helluva drug, no?

        1. “Try looking into those links where you dare not look! You’ll find me there, staring out at you!”

        2. What sucks is that Urkobold got disappeared. No more Mountie Python, no more Viking funerals, no more nothing.

          1. Yes, I see that Urkobold can no longer be accessed, just like birth control and medical care in the USA. You mean, no more Monkey Tuesday? No more Dearth Panels? Sad, sad times indeed…

            1. This pisses me off to no end.

      3. “”I just commented, freestyle.””

        I once told someone as a joke many years ago that I could rhyme over whale songs and a tambourine, my freestyle was so tight.

        That line ended up used in a rap song produced by the guy I was talking to way back when.

  23. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie. (Hurry up, Sweet Meteor of Death.)

    My younger brother loved that show. I was an annoying teenage progressive (before I became an annoying teenage conservative, before I became an annoying adult libertarian) at the time and could still see how terrible it was, even for propaganda. And with Leo DiCaprio at the helm it may actually be worse than what Ted Turner did with it.

    1. It might backfire. Remember that True Believers are prone to inadvertent self-parody, so this could end up like “Reefer Madness”.

      1. Either that, or it becomes the first film based on a cartoon to actually win Best Picture.

  24. The loneliest road trip: How NOBODY recognized Clinton at famous Chipotle stop and she had to do a lap of a gas station to find anyone to shake her hand

    n the Chipotle stop, ‘no one noticed who she was,’ reported press secretary Nick Merrill

    ‘Just stopped for lunch in Maumee, OH, at the Chipotle in a strip mall next to a Meijer supermarket, an LA Fitness, and a train depot, Merrill wrote on April 13th around lunchtime.

    ‘HRC went through the line and ordered a burrito bowl with chicken and black beans, gauc, and an iced tea. No one noticed that she was there, which made for an awkward encounter between me and the manager as I was taking aerial shots of HRC ordering,’ Merrill said.

    ‘I think he thought I was from the health department,’ he added.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    1. Somehow I doubt Trump could pull off the same feat.

    2. You know who else had to do laps around gas stations after a Chipotle stop?

      1. Everyone?

        1. Ha! Just watched this again today… Binge-watching them all from Season 1 on Hulu. SP has been on fire since about season 10.

    3. They probably recognized her but wanted to avoid her

    4. You don’t disturb the lizard-person when it’s feeding.

    5. Was this during their EColi scare?

      I wonder how much they donated

      1. More than you can possibly imagine.

  25. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie.

    Starring Don Cheadle?

  26. Did you guys hear about how the Clinton campaign disrupts Trump rallies and purposely incites violence like a bunch of brownshirts?

    “Scott Foval, National Field Director for a non-profit organization named Americans United for Change, told an undercover reporter, “The [Clinton] campaign pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays the Foval Group, The Foval Group goes and executes the shit.”

    What is this “shit” the Foval Group executes? Foval points to Shirley Teeter, a 69-year-old woman who dominated the airwaves after she said she was assaulted at a North Carolina Trump rally.

    “She was one of our activists,” Foval said to the undercover reporter.

    . . .

    Two of Creamer’s underlings in the video, Zulema Rodriguez and Aaron Black take credit for organizing the March Chicago protest which made Trump cancel his rally and left police officers injured.

    . . .

    “When Foval spoke about the events he organizes he said, “There’s a script of engagement. Sometimes the crazies bite and sometimes the crazies don’t bite.”

    “When they’re outside the rally, the media will cover it no matter where it happens. The key is initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people who are naturally psychotic,” Foval continued.

    1. Derp-o-Matic linked this at 4:34 on this thread.

      1. It didn’t make PM links. But then Robby’s typical posts are like a libertarian news show for Nickelodeon–except they aren’t libertarian.

        Regardless, it should be every third comment in the thread.

        Where’s your contribution?

        1. Maybe it didn’t make PM links because there are other videos dropping soon, and Reason staff wants to wait to see all of them before commenting.

          1. Yeah, that’s what they did when they were calling out Trump for inciting this violence at his rallies, too.

    2. Somehow, that sort of devastating-to-Hillary information seems less important around here than a Captain Planet movie.

      1. Well, he did throw in a dig at Trump, “Melania Trump says Donald isn’t responsible for his gross comments”, and how could that NOT be interesting?

        1. Which she didn’t say. And I only read the article because it sounded implausible and Robby is nothing if not hyperbolic. Had to confirm. Wasn’t wrong.

          1. “Hyperbolic” is too kind.

            1. “Thoroughly unlikable”, “complete blowhard”, “sanctimonious panderer” and “smug self-fellator” all seemed too loaded to pack into such a short post.

          2. Yep. I’m giving Robby a “pant-on-fire” rating for this summation.

            I know he’s probably really tore up about that. But I gotta call em like I see em.

        2. Come on Ken, a candidate’s family is defending him. That is really big news.

    3. This has been fairly heavily talked about.

      1. You mean by everyone except Reason staff who called out Trump supporters for being violent?

        1. Who reads anything up there

        2. C’mon Ken. If those Trump supporters weren’t supporting Trump, this wouldn’t have happened, so it’s really the Trump supporters that incited the violence – by supporting Trump. See?

          1. Actually, it’s global warming’s fault.

        3. Well, yeah, ok. It’s true we’ve heard more about Bob Dylan than a Democratic dirty-tricks committee.

    4. Page taken straight from the brownshirt playbook. Yet it’s not newsworthy. I have to wonder, if it came out that Trump’s campaigners were doing this at Hilary’s rallies, would Reason report it?

      1. No need to speculate. They reported on these events as they were happening and slammed them.

        This article is typical:

        “The last contender given an opportunity to call out Trump’s rhetoric as an inciting factor in the recent violence . . .

        [Tapper] let Trump tap-dance his way out of any responsibility for inciting violence . . .

        . . .

        Trump’s opponents, who have railed against his “incivility” and “bullying” for months, completely let him off the hook at last night’s debate when presented with the opportunity to explain how the Trump movement goes far beyond just nasty rhetoric, but is instead now manifesting itself violently.

        . . .

        If last night is any indication of how Trump’s rivals and the media plan on holding Trump accountable for how his words influence the actions of his supporters, it’s a fair bet to say that “a little bit more” violence is what we’ll see.”

        “Donald Trump’s Rivals Completely Let Him Off the Hook on Violence Surrounding His Campaign”

        https://reason.com/blog/2016/03…..e-campaign

        Comes out that this was all orchestrated by the Hillary campaign, and now they’ve got nothing to say?

        1. The Reason writer who wrote this should be livid at the Clinton campaign for duping him.

          But there is no shame in being lied to.

          The shame is in refusing to acknowledge the truth. And this story is brand spanking new. This stuff only came to light after the last Wikileaks dump.

          God bless Julian Assange.

          1. I don’t see how dirty tricks by the Dems get Trump and his supporters off the hook. The Chicago incident specifically was the left’s fault, but referring to the more broad phenomena, if your opponents send people to protest your rally and your supporters react violently (which Trump supporters did do on occasion), your supporters are still to blame even if that was the desired result of the other side. Particularly given Trump’s rhetoric on the matter, particularly offering to pay the legal fees of a supporter who sucker punched someone getting escorted out of a rally.

            Also, I assume Reason is taking their time vetting this, and for good reason given that O’Keefe has a history of malicious editing in his videos.

            1. Fuck that noise!

              Not only does purposely instigating people into physically attacking you–in the hope that they’ll physically attack you–absolve the attackers, it also brings the credibility of the “victims” into question.

              Why should anybody believe anything these people say?

              And that wasn’t the only thing they were doing.

              And how do you know the people perpetrating the violence weren’t Hillary supporters, too?

              1. Wait, so individual responsibility doesn’t matter anymore? Agency? Freedom of speech? It is newsworthy but hateful speech does not justify violence in retaliation.

                1. Individual responsibility is extremely important.

                  And Hillary Clinton should take personal responsibility for intentionally provoking violence at Trump rallies to shut them down.

                  And the American people should know that this is the kind of President she would be: The kind of President who intentionally provokes violence at the rallies of her political opponents to shut them down.

            2. You telling me you don’t read the following article differently now than you did before the Thugs for Hillary story broke?

              “Minutes after Mr. Trump was to have taken to a podium on the campus of a large, diverse public university just west of downtown, an announcer suddenly pronounced the event over before it had begun. Hundreds of protesters, who had promised to be a visible presence here and filled several sections of the arena, let out an elated, unstopping cheer. Mr. Trump’s supporters, many of whom had waited hours to see the Republican front-runner, seemed stunned and slowly filed out in anger.

              Around the country, protesters have interrupted virtually every Trump rally, but his planned appearance here ? in a city run for decades by Democrats and populated by nearly equal thirds of blacks, Latinos and whites ? had drawn some particularly incensed responses since it was announced days ago.

              The canceled rally came on a day that Mr. Trump sought to move past the primary fight, saying that the party needed to come together behind him.

              . . .

              1. . . .

                “Elsewhere, Mr. Trump’s security has tried to identify and exclude potential demonstrators before they enter his events, but large groups of protesters had waited in line for seats here, and engaged in tense disputes with Trump supporters even as the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion was still filling up. For more than an hour before the event was to begin, security teams led protesters out, one by one, but many more remained, sparring with Trump supporters.

                In a statement, Mr. Trump’s campaign said that he “has determined that for the safety of all of the tens of thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena, tonight’s rally will be postponed to another date.”

                http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03…..ffles.html

                This by Hillary Clinton, who would be President?

                Fuck that noise.

              2. . . .

                “Elsewhere, Mr. Trump’s security has tried to identify and exclude potential demonstrators before they enter his events, but large groups of protesters had waited in line for seats here, and engaged in tense disputes with Trump supporters even as the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion was still filling up.

                This by Hillary Clinton, who would be President?

                Fuck that noise.

        2. Not a god damn word. And if you ask why that is, some white knights, usually Robby’s defenders, will ride in to lecture you about the existence of other news publications and feed you some variant of the classic argument “If you don’t like it, you can geeeeet out!”

          Criticism is unacceptable and always indicative of some sort of immaturity or mental defect. Real libertarians don’t criticize the dumbfuck hypocritical editorial decisions made by Reason staff.

          1. *coughs to get FS’s attention*
            *points at the door*

            /SJWtarian

            1. Is that what all the coughing’s about?

      2. If that were the case, Reason wouldn’t have to report it because it would be the only topic on every television network on the dial. Heck, HGTV would do a three-hour special about it.

        1. If that were the case = if it were the case that the Trump campaign was sneakily inciting violent protests at Clinton rallies.

          (there were a bunch of replies while I was going through the comments, so my reply was separated from the original comment.)

  27. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie. (Hurry up, Sweet Meteor of Death.)

    If it’s HALF as entertaining as the original series, we will be in for a real treat! If by ‘treat’ you understand ‘barbiturate’.

    Melania Trump says Donald isn’t responsible for his gross comments.

    “Duh voices in heet head made him doo it.”

    Michael Moore will soon be streaming an anti-Trump film, just in time for the election. Two words: Citizens United.

    Two words: What for?

    Tonight at the UnConvention in New York City: I’m discussing political correctness and the 2016 election with CNN’s Sally Kohn and Mic’s Jamila King. Tickets here. Livestream here.

    Sally Kohn… Sally Kohn… Is that the short-haired guy who looks like a Don Martin character?

    1. If by ‘treat’ you understand ‘barbiturate’.

      FALSE: Under the right conditions, a barbiturate can be a real treat.

  28. The Latest: More than 100 US troops with Iraqi forces

    A Pentagon spokesman says more than 100 U.S. troops are embedded with Iraqi forces, including the Kurdish Peshmerga, as they advance toward Mosul.

    The spokesman, Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, told reporters Tuesday that the Americans are “well back” from the front lines as they advise the Iraqis and perform other tasks such as relaying information received from frontline Iraqis about potential Islamic State targets for coalition airstrikes. Some hundreds of other U.S. troops are in support roles such as processing intelligence and providing logistical help from Iraqi staging bases.

    Davis said U.S. warplanes are supporting the Iraqis, as expected, and that American artillery is being used against Islamic State targets. He would not be more specific about the use of U.S. artillery.

  30. Naked statue of Hillary Clinton in downtown Manhattan causes fight during morning commute

    An artist erected an obscene statue of Hillary Clinton in downtown Manhattan Tuesday morning causing a heated fight between defenders of the profane piece of protest art and women trying to tear it down.

    The grotesque caricature of the Democratic candidate appeared outside the Bowling Green station during morning rush hour on Tuesday and shows Clinton with hoofed feet and a Wall Street banker resting his head on her bare breasts.

    The statue was up for less than three hours before an enraged woman toppled it over and started yelling at the statue’s creator.

    “This is obscene!” shouted the woman, an employee at the nearby National Museum of the American Indian who would only identify herself as Nancy.

    “To put something up like this in front of my work place…I shouldn’t have to see this,” she later told the Daily News, fighting back tears as she gestured toward the crude figure.

    1. Grab it’s fucking pussy.

    2. If you’ll excuse me, I need to go gouge out my eyeballs.

    3. Interesting. Naked Trump statue results in quiet lines of polite people taking pictures and facebooking the experience…

    4. This is rape culture and totally not cool. Unlike the statutes of naked Donald Trump which were heroically speaking truth to power.

      1. No shit. These people would be right at home in Versailles stabbing each other in the back for the chance to wipe Hillary’s ass with a sponge.

        1. If by sponge, you mean ‘tongue’.

          Picture it.

          1. Robby, some Bleach-Bit right here, please.

    5. “To put something up like this in front of my work place…I shouldn’t have to see this,” she later told the Daily News

      “‘Shouldn’t’ has nothing to do with it.”

      1. +1 William Munny from Missouri

        1. Next sumbitch touches my statue, I’ll kill him, kill his family , and burn down his house!

    6. I recall seeing a naked Trump statute that some people grumbled about and most laughed at it. No one felt so entitled as to attempt to demolish the thing on the spot.

      1. I would approve of a Naked Trump Statute if it were limited to Ivanka and Melania

    7. If the statue was by the same artist, that would be so delicious.

    8. On one hand, double standard with naked Trump statues.

      On the other hand, naked statues of HRC should be at least considered acts of terrorism if not war crimes.

    9. —–An artist erected an obscene statue of Hillary Clinton in downtown Manhattan Tuesday morning causing a heated fight between defenders of the profane piece of protest art and women trying to tear it down.—–

      You couldn’t pay me enough to click on that link. That being said, I got a case of the lolz from the woman whining about a ‘grotesque caricature’. The irony is so strong it burns.

      PS: Eventually, I’m going to learn this fancy HTML tags so I can do alt-text and stuff. Maybe.

      1. [i]Text you want in italics[/i]

        replace square brackets with angled ones. Easy enough that you can do it from a phone.

      That wasn’t the only thing that was erected, amirite Crusty!?!

  31. Reason.com is the only news source to which I have access, so not only would I appreciate Reason.com covering the stories I want them to cover, I would also appreciate it if they posted the stories when I want them posted.

    Thank you.

    1. With titties on page 3

    2. And CJ implores you to stop with the creepy clown shit, it’s cramping his style with the homeless peeps.

  32. I want it to be Fall 2017 so this election is over and so I can play Red Dead Redemption 2.

    1. Jonesing for a little Five Finger Fillet?

    2. I’d settle for it being Friday, so I can play Battlefield. Then when the election comes around and everyone loses their damn mind, I can just say, “Hm? The election? Oh, I didn’t go; I was busy playing Battlefield.” And I’ll go back to playing Battlefield.

    3. Mafia 3 was a massive letdown.

      1. From guys who said, “You know what GTA needs more of? Traffic safety.” Who would of thunk it.

  33. Someone posted that Democratic Underground rant by a Canadian guy about how Trump is Hitler on the AM Links. I didn’t get a chance to comment on it, but my god is this guy infuriating:

    he Brits were rather pleased with us, as were the French (may I remind you they have nukes even if we don’t?) and a whole lot of other countries with standing armies who are watching in horror as America falls victim to an authoritarian, sociopathic narcissist.

    We remember Hitler. We were there. We will be ready.

    What’s the over-under on this motherfucker absolutely refusing to increase funding for the Canadian armed forces? Or if he’s even in the reserves, let alone the regular forces? Because goddamn buddy, if you think we have a hope in hell of fighting the modern American military you’re an idiot. We’d get rolled like a third world nation’s army in a week or less. And it’s because since the Korean War we’ve had Ottawa constantly shit on us again and again and again. Our wee little army is nowhere near the standard of most developed nations, our navy has gone from the fourth largest in 1945 to a flotilla of aging ships with new tech slapped on every chance we get, and the Chair Force might get some shiny Euro fighters but that don’t mean shit. You want to saber rattle give us the goddamn money to actually fight.

    In his World War 2 fantasy, we’re not Canada, we’re the bloody Netherlands. Fucking nationalists man.

    1. Do you think Canada secretly has nukes?

      1. Yeah, but they’re all pointed at Quebec.

      2. If by ‘Canada’ you mean America, yes. I mean, it’s all North America right?

        1. We should place a few silos just over the border, just to give their PM something to do.

          1. One and done, Pro’L Dib. I have had the Maritime Annihilation Project at full, operational capacity (I managed to procure some wayward Ukrainian nukes).

            Just give me The Word…

      3. If we do I’m certainly not aware of them.

        Excuse me.

        They’re onto us, get the back to our secret Chinese overlords!

        1. Nuclear mines in the Arctic. Brilliant.

      4. If we did we’d have to deliver them in fucking canoe

    2. It’s just typical bourgeois prog breast-beating. Most of these dopes would melt in about 15 seconds if shit ever got real. The Dems can’t even incite riots at Trump rallies without paying mentally retarded people to start fights.

    3. The low defense spending is one of the good things about Canada.

      1. Nope.

        “Low defense spending” and “underfunding the military and constantly screwing them over” are not the same things.

        Afghanistan fucked us in the ass, that environment is hell on equipment. We need another two years before we can possibly deploy anywhere. Ottawa’s response? “Make do with what you have. And oh yeah, we want you to do some more dumb peacekeeping missions in the next year or so.”

        Fortunately the Defense Minister explained to Prime Minister Zoolander how stupid that is. Probably with hand puppets.

      2. Low is okay if you maintain a minimum standard. But ours is low to embarrassing levels as JT points out.

        It’s a national disgrace yet we have nationalist jerk offs like Gordie McIdiot at DU squawking as if they live in a la-la world. In fact, it permeates throughout this naive population who don’t believe we need one because if Canada speaks people will respect us *just because*.

        Canada CAN’T DEFEND ITSELF.

        Now tell me where’s the honor in that?

    4. as America falls victim to an authoritarian, sociopathic narcissist.

      Justin Trudeau?

  34. Captain Planet better fight Hitler or this is a waste of my frigging time.

    1. What’s with the fu manchu?

      1. Probably a “HE’S TOTALLY HITLER, WE DIDN’T PUT HITLER IN OUR KIDS’ SHOW, DON’T WRITE US ANGRY LETTERS” moment.

        I remember Justice League did a similar thing when they time-traveled back to World War 2. “Quick, Vandal Savage took over Nazi Germany! There’s no Hitler here, he’s just frozen away somewhere!”

  35. In honor of Russel Martin’s walk, I share this photo for the ladies and homotariat.

    NSFW – hella gay.

    1. You’re lucky in the Firewall guy at my company.

      1. NGFW — hella gay

        1. Alternate joke (who am I, Eddie?): so, you work around the clock?

    2. In honor of Russel Martin’s walk

      I don’t know who or what that is, but the tatts ruin it as usual.

  36. With all these revelations about the Clinton campaign inciting violence at Trump rallies, making false accusations, “bird-dogging”, etc., it makes you wonder . . .

    All the things the guy in that video are saying they do for the Hillary campaign are a lot like what Michelle Fields did to the Trump campaign at one of their rallies.

    I don’t know of any evidence that she was coordinating with the Hillary campaign, but now she’s working for The Huffington Post and publicly giving Hillary advice on how to beat Trump.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlxbAV_kL2o

    1. Her mom was a proggy activist before this whole election started. Fields was probably a plant as far as I’m concerned.

  37. Leonardo DiCaprio might be producing a new Captain Planet movie.

    Starring Don Cheadle?

    1. The interesting thing is in that article they gush over how you can use the ethanol for fuel after sequestering the CO2 from burning EVUL fossil fuels. Nevermind that burning Ethanol produces… wait for it… CO2 and water. DERPITY DERPA DERPTY DOO!

      1. The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.

        Plants are not going to like the competition.

      2. Also, this process needs energy input (obviously). Even though it’s my field, I can’t tell just by skimming the paper (nice work btw) how much power is required to produce a gram of ethanol. If it’s more than the ethanol can produce, it’s not very exciting. Not to mention the energy consumption needed to produce the catalyst (enormous). That’s probably why it’s in Chemistry Select and not Science or even any ACS journal.
