  1. ISIS on retreat in Eastern Syria after losing their capital of Raqqa.

    Classic JV squad move.

    1. Hello.

      Elizabeth Warren claimed to be sexually assaulted.

      The fake Indian was fake raped.

      1. BTW, that fucking #MeToo thing represents everything that’s wrong with our Victim-centric culture.

        1. How many have you raped with your eyes, Paul. Ever sniffed one of them while their backs were turned? Or is masturbation you thing?

          1. Fuck, I saw the “you” the second after I submitted.

        2. Maybe you need to calm the fuck down.

        1. As we know, nothing offends PB more than someone expressing regret about rape.

          1. I’m offended that Rufus is too stupid to keep Citizen X’s charade going!

            1. Dude, better Citizen X’s charade than Citizen X’s parade. Cause there ain’t enough catnip in the world.

        2. There is a lot of sickos in the world, but no way was anyone sick enough to want to rape Elizabeth Warren. She needs to keep her pornographic fantasies to herself.

          1. You haven’t met Derek.

          2. John translated: Ugly Democratic women can’t be raped.

            1. Yes. And Warren is a known liar. If you build your entire career around lying about being an Indian, you can’t really be trusted about anything.

              1. So are you accusing someone of being an Indian giver?

          3. STEVE SMITH OFFENDED BY LACK OF FAITH. EVERYONE #METOO IN STEVE SMITH EYES.

        3. Sez the Harvey Weinstein truther.

  2. House Republicans launch investigation into controversial Obama-era uranium deal with Russian company.

    They were hoping to be using it right now to discredit the president, but she didn’t get elected.

  3. Billy O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly spar over sexual harassment allegations levied at O’Reilly during his time at Fox.

    As long as they’re staying relevant.

  4. The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar continues.

    Who knew bad things could happen when you give your military free rein.

    1. And who knew that anyone in the world other than Trump and the evil JOOS didn’t love Muslims?

    2. Gosh, so people are handing the Saracen Berserkers their own heads on a platter for a change… I am reminded of Ebeneezer, the town drunk, reacting with a wide grin to the British and Hessians burning down the church at Concord in 1776: “That’s a shame.”

  5. Randy Freer named CEO of Hulu as Mike Hopkins moves to Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    Maybe this means Sony will be starting its own streaming service. We need another one.

    1. They already have one.

    Uh huh, hmm.

    1. All it means is that the new comments are 80% quality.

  7. Five whole links? Somebody must have given Britches a talking-to.

    1. They should have included alt-text in the talking points.

    2. Christian Dialtone Britches is immune to our criticism.

      1. He knows that we the commentators are the base for the full-on Koch revolution.

  8. The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar continues. Everyday Burmese seem not to mind.

    Christian Britschgi,

    The link you provided leads to Vacationing in the United States? Be Warned, Some Countries Say.

    1. Better than that time [insert name of Reason staff member] accidentally provided a link to [insert name of porngraphic Web site].

      1. This joke should be a collaborative effort, so fill in the blanks and make it funny.

        1. make it funny.

          Damn, sorry to let you down already.

        2. What about that time that Fusionist guy accidentally linked to SuperfluousFetus.

        3. Joke? ENB topically/intentionally links to pornhub, avn, or realdoll in every third article and for a couple of weeks straight Shackford didn’t go a day without linking to rentboy.

      2. I loved when Tucille linked to YokeltariansAlwaysCumFreely.xxx

      3. 1. Robby
        2. hairinmyfruitsushi.com

    2. Perhaps I’m confused, but is Muslim an ethnicity in Rohingya?

      1. Hell, seems like people use it as such here.

        1. I guess ‘ethic cleansing’ doesn’t have the same impact.

      2. Religion defines ethnicity in a lot of countries. Bosnia is an obvious example. Ireland also springs to mind (they don’t usually refer to Catholics and Protestants there as ethnicities, but that’s pretty much how they see them).

        In this case, though, the ethnic group is known as Rohingya, and they happen to be overwhelmingly Muslim. But according to Wikipedia, there are a few Rohingya Hindus as well.

        1. It doesn’t define ethnicity so much as correlate with it.

    THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS WILL SCREAM HELPLESSLY AT THE SKY ON TRUMP’S ELECTION ANNIVERSARY

    But remember, Trump is the crazy one.

    1. That actually is ironic. It’s a continuation of a meme going around about doing futile things in regard to Trump. Like “Anime Run Around Trump Tower” or “Hold a Seance At Trump Tower”. Stuff like that has been floating around lately.

      That being said, it will be interesting to see how many people actually do it.

      1. Pussy Riot unfurled a protest banner against Putin’n’Trump at Trump Tower this week.

      2. That actually is ironic.

        It’s like a black fly in your chardonnay.

    2. And that’s how the demonstrators (and Newsweek) describe themselves.

      Like Dogbert said, I’d mock them but the challenge is gone.

    3. Doesn’t have to be one or the other.

      1. Get back to me when they find Trump out on the White House lawn baying at the moon. Otherwise, it is pretty clear there is only one crazy party here.

        1. Screaming at the moon? There’ll be howling at 1600 Pennsylvania when Mueller returns his recommendation to indict.

          1. I can’t comment on things that happen in your fantasy world. Trump is never going to be indicted for anything.

            1. Oh yeah, John, this Russian investigation is totally my fantasy world. I must have one hell of an imagination. Y’all like to call out Buttplug for his rape apologies well your Russian apologies are well known sir as is your fat chick fetishes. Check the record. You laid your naked body on the altar of Trumps Russian lies and as those lies were laid bare so was your whore body exposed. In other words, you trusted Trump when he claimed no Russian connection of any kind. No connections at all. Pure lie. There were tons of Russian connections. Trump lied about the “adoption” meeting. I’m losing interest here but just check the record.

              1. How can you believe so completely in a thing with no actual evidence one might ask, but the answer seems pretty self evident.

              2. The only Russian connections were the bribes Hillary was taking

              3. Link?

          2. I assume this is satire of “The Resistance”

            If you’re serious, I hope you don’t or haven’t procreated

  10. I’ve grown to love how Christian hate-fucks us with his links.

    1. Gillespie: “Don’t forget, Christian, you’re on” [puff, cough] “links duty this afternoon, brah.”

      Britches: [sotto voce] “Motherfuck.”

    2. Who doesn’t like a man of few words.

      1. John and Ken.

        1. + many words.

        2. And Memory Hole, apparently. Is this a new troll? I haven’t been around much lately.

          1. We’re all Tulpa down here.

  11. ISIS on retreat in Eastern Syria after losing their capital of Raqqa.

    Why is ISIS on the retreat, what changed?

    1. They lost their capital of Raqqa.

      1. And it seems very easy for them to make a new capital.

      2. what is Raqqa?

  12. why does the Royhinga Muslim link go to a story about travel warnings for vacationers to the United States?

    1. It’s safe to book travel in the Middle East now.

      President Orange Fucking Moron fixed everything there. He said so himself. And Niger is like Disney now.

      1. Just continue to avoid Chicago.

        1. That community needs to get organized.

          1. It will. Around a billion dollar temple to Obama, which will hopefully feature bulletproof windows.

    2. What’s funny about all the breathless coverage of that, from a sheer geographical size point of view, it’s a bit like saying “bad shit happened in France, so stay away from all of Europe!”

      1. Done.

        I ain’t gots time for no stanky-assed foreigners.

  13. the Rohingya are supposed to be agents of a global Islamist conspiracy to take over the world and forcibly instate a global caliphate. The duty of any good Buddhist who wants to maintain the national and religious character of Myanmar is to prevent the Islamist takeover, and thus to help remove the threat posed by the “vermin.”

    given the behavior of Muslims in the last 50 years or so it’s hard to exactly blame the Buddhists for this view.

    1. I dunno about the Rohingya but that’s a pretty fair description of how Islam made it to Burma in the first place.

      1. yeah, exactly, and Indonesia, and probably India here shortly see e.g. Pakistan and Bangladesh…

        that’s pretty much Islam’s MO.

    2. Something something fighting monsters beware something something. .

      1. No one ever said life owed you good choices.

  14. The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar continues. Everyday Burmese seem not to mind.

    Seems sad.

    Shame that there is a lot of sad stuff in the world.

    1. And yet somehow the world is a better and safer place year after year.

      1. On average yes. Certain spots tend to be shitholes.

  15. House Republicans launch investigation into controversial Obama-era uranium deal with Russian company.

    I watched their press conference on CNN. There were three Republicans — Nunes, some guy filling in for Gowdy, and Peter King (my god is he wearing a Halloween mask). Check the film, they had guiltiest looks on their faces as they were announcing their big investigation. I look forward to the Democrats investigating this investigation because Nunes looked like he was about to or had committed a crime.

  16. “House Republicans launch investigation into controversial Obama-era uranium deal with Russian company.”

    This is going to be as dumb as the Benghazi scandal (which was indeed very problematic scandal, just not for any of the reasons Congressional Republicans focused on), but I don’t know how anybody can defend Obama’s Russia policy for his entire presidency. He deliberately avoided any confrontation, let Russia run rampant around the world without reproach, and tried to be buddy-buddy with them as much as Trump does. And now the Hill evidence suggests he hid the extent of corrupt Russian influence in American businesses and politics.

    Many idiotic people on the left compare this election to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, and if that’s the case, Obama is far more directly responsible for failing to protect the nation than FDR or Bush were for those events.

    However, it wasn’t anything close to 9/11. I still am not convinced a president Hillary would have been better, and I don’t think anything about the meddling unprecedented at all. We just care now and are noticing. Does anybody think if Hillary won anybody would even care about Russians buying $100,000 worth of Facebook ads?

    1. This is going to be as dumb as the Benghazi scandal (which was indeed very problematic scandal, just not for any of the reasons Congressional Republicans focused on), but I don’t know how anybody can defend Obama’s Russia policy for his entire presidency. He deliberately avoided any confrontation, let Russia run rampant around the world without reproach, and tried to be buddy-buddy with them as much as Trump does. And now the Hill evidence suggests he hid the extent of corrupt Russian influence in American businesses and politics.

      Not just him.

      Robert Mueller. The lead investigator. He ALSO did so.

    2. The difference seems to be that Russia was full of great guys while Obama was in office but when Trump came along suddenly the Russian’s became Cold War Bond villains again. It’s a clear double standard.

      Not saying that nothing untoward could have happened between Trump and Russia that we don’t yet know about, but as of yet there is exactly zero proof and it’s been long enough that you would hope either evidence would have surfaced or the case put to bed.

      Every day that goes by makes Mueller look more and more like a political operative. If you’re a democrat, you’d think people would be calling him incompetent by now since there is a bizarre wide-spread belief that Trump must have done something illegal. How does that jive with the perception that Trump is also retarded? That makes Mueller look like a double-secret retard for not finding proof yet.

      1. I get the feeling that if Mueller finds something really incriminating, it will be completely unrelated to Russia, perhaps something like a shady real estate deal. Trump made his living in New York after all

        1. I agree. Trump doesn’t strike me as an ethical sort of a guy, I mean he ran for President and no sane man seeks that job, but traitor? That seems unlikely. Furthermore, the probability is that it would be a New York politician that would go down with him, so…Hillary?

          If Bill Clinton got out of being indicted, there is absolutely no way in hell Trump will be without a true smoking gun. And lets face it, it’s been almost a year and we have absolutely nothing whatsoever except a widely discredited opposition research report.

          Frankly, I suspect the whole theater treatment is because a lot of politicians got a lot of egg on their face for believing such an obviously false document in the first place.

      2. The difference seems to be that Russia was full of great guys while Obama was in office but when Trump came along suddenly the Russian’s became Cold War Bond villains again. It’s a clear double standard.

        I blame that damned Obama flexibility.

    3. There won’t be any prosecutions from this. As damning as it looks, I doubt there’s any smoking gun. We’re talking about the Clintons here. They’re obvious enough to get noticed but still smart enough not to get caught

  17. Most People Believe In JFK Conspiracy Theories

    According to a new FiveThirtyEight-commissioned SurveyMonkey poll of 5,130 adults, conducted Oct. 17 to Oct. 20, 2017, only 33 percent of Americans believe that one man was responsible for the assassination. A majority, 61 percent, think that others were involved in a conspiracy. In pretty much every demographic, most respondents believed that Oswald didn’t act alone.

    That’s just what they want you to think.

      1. Stonecutter was my nickname at the girls’ parochial school.

    1. Well the right is full of conspiracy theorists that believe ntohing the government tells them, and nobody on the left wants to admit that it was a Communist that killed Kennedy.
      Bobby Kennedy was murdered by a anti-Zionist Palestinian.
      Somehow there is a widespread belief that their deaths were the result of racists or Republican hatred.

      The only Kennedy that actually deserved to die was Ted, because he left an innocent young woman to suffocate to death after driving her into a fucking river. Shame.

  18. In Response to Far Right, LGBTQ Gun Group Hits Firing Line

    Fuck yeah!

    Shooting a gun and then noshing a garbage plate is a damn good day out.

    1. Good for them. The alt-right is truly bringing our nation together.

    2. “It’s a way to assert our strength,” said Jake Allen, 27, who helped form the group. “Often, queer people are thought of as being weak, as being defenseless, and I think in many ways this pushes back against that. And I want white supremacists and neo-Nazis to know that queer people are taking steps necessary to protect themselves.”

      “Is an arms race what we really want?” asked Scott Fearing, executive director of Rochester’s Out Alliance. “What we know in any arms race is that it’s never good for anybody, and death and destruction and harm and hurt can come when so many people have arms and weapons.”

      Trigger Warning members stress they are about empowerment and self-defense, not offense. Members say it also gives them a sense of community ? even if it comes on a firing line in the middle of farm country.

      1. Good for them. Everyone has a human right to self defense. It is funny how they are only worried about white supremacists and neo-Nazis attacking them. I seem to remember some other group of lunatics who have a problem with gays. Hmm.

      2. Serious question, are white supremacists anti gay? What about being a white supremacist necessarily means you hate gays?

        1. Well, they like Milo enough.

          1. Some of them seem to.

            1. People in the”alt-lite” like him. But the alt-right does not, even after he tried to get in good with some of them. They obsess about degeneracy and I would guess that most of them include homosexuality in that category. Plus he’s part Jewish. The antisemitism in that crowd is absolutely rabid

              1. It’s insane how anti-semetic they are. Which is weird, as I love the jews.

          2. Well, they like Milo enough.

            Based on his hate mail…not so much.

        2. One would think they would have no real problem with white gay people but I don’t know any to question. Something tells me that an organization that espouses racial superiority isn’t very tied to logic though.

      3. Way to go, poofters!

    3. Ironically, this was a huge cause for Milo. He wanted gays to get better armed for a while due to the increased likelihood of violence with the Left’s new Islamic buddies.

    4. Trigger Warning Queer & Trans Gun Club
      yelling, “Pull!” and blasting
      pushes back against that
      the gaping hole
      twinkling our fingers
      taking up arms

      Are we sure this isn’t a prank?

    5. This quote is the most awesome thing about this article.

      “the gaping hole in the knowledge of people on the left” about firearms.

    6. Putting a scope on a shotgun is so G A Y.

  19. House Republicans launch investigation into controversial Obama-era uranium deal with Russian company.

    “Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status,” said a statement by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.)

    Ha ha, it is to laugh.

  20. Trump Administration Again Certifies Iran Is Complying With Nuclear Deal

    https://goo.gl/M2CFKA

    1. That was in July. It is now October. They didn’t recertify it. it was in all the papers.

      1. Iran is still in compliance.

        The Orange Fucking Moron just wants to overturn the deal because Obama owned his ass at the WHCD.

        1. Not according to the state department and the international community. You need to get your news from somewhere besides the Mullah Jihad network.

        2. He accepted the election results! What more do you want?

  21. Link for Muslim killing points to wrong article

  22. He who is in desperate need of a vowel in his last name doesn’t enter the comments.
