Some conservatives and journalists condemned The New York Times following its “1619 Project” that “aims to reframe the country’s history.”

The “1619 Project” is made up of numerous stories and poems about slavery and racism and suggests America’s “true founding” was when the first slaves arrived.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich called the project “a lie” on Fox News on Aug. 19.

Twitter Accepts Chinese Regime Ads Smearing Hong Kong Protesters

 View image on Twitter


Twitter has accepted advertising from China’s largest state news agency attacking pro-democracy protesters. The ads, known as “promoted tweets,” call the Hong Kong protests “blatant violence.”

TechCrunch reports that Twitter is currently facing criticism for allowing promoted tweet advertising by China’s largest state news agency. The promoted tweets aim to smear pro-democracy demonstrations by protesters in Hong Kong as violent even though recently rallies which have drawn as many as 1.7 million people have been reported as largely peaceful by international media.

Franklin Armory’s New “Reformation” Isn’t a Pistol or Rifle and Doesn’t Need a Stamp (Full Review)


If you purchase firearms based solely on their ability to help you survive the zombie apocalypse, you might want to skip this one. But if you have a sense of humor, a love of weird firearms, and a healthy desire to Stick It to The Man, Franklin Armory’s new Reformation is exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Franklin Armory built its reputation pushing the boundaries of gun control regulations – and sticking it to The Man that is California’s DOJ. They always stay within the “four corners of the law,” as company President Jay Jacobson told me via phone, but they’ve been exploring the dark recesses of those corners since their founding over 20 years ago.

I Want To Live To See Jane Fonda Die (Re-post) 2011

Via John

Over the weekend, actor Peter Fonda died at age 79. *He died from lung cancer, and we wouldn't wish that kind of pain and suffering on anyone.

But that being said, owing to a spate of tweets in his final years, we have little choice other than to remember him as a complete asshole...

* I hope he was miserable and that his sister's will be worst.

There was a time I thought I’d live forever, I was too damn tough to die

But after all these years of abusing myself I’m damned if I know why

And it’s looking like my living days will soon be in my past

But there’s one thing, Lord, that I need from you, before I breathe my last.

I’ve probably asked for too much while I was taking up my space

But, I need to ask for one more thing, before I leave this place.

If you’ll grant me one last final wish, I’ll offer up my soul

Then take me any time you want, while they plant me in that hole.

Lord, please let me live , to see Jane Fonda die!

Then you can send me down to hell, and I’ll smile while I fry

I know you’ve let her live too long, but I'm damned if I know why,

So, please let me live, to see Jane Fonda die!

Some friends and I spent some time in a place called Viet Nam

Most of us left here young boys, but we all came back a man.

They didn’t let us make the rules, so we did what we were told

And almost sixty thousand men lost their chance at getting’ old.

Back home they marched against the war, and called us evil names

Like ‘baby killers’, and ‘war mongers’; and said we were insane

And, hell, we just ignored them, and let ‘em have their fun

We’ve forgotten almost all their names, but we won’t forget this ONE…..

While our friends were dying in the south, she flew up to Hanoi

And sat on anti-aircraft guns that were shooting down our boys

And the smile she wore while sitting there for all the world to see!

Is something that we won’t forgive for all eternity!

So, Lord, let me live to see Jane Fonda die!

Then you can send us both to hell, and I’ll smile while we fry!

I know you’ve let her live too long, but I'm damned if I know why.

But please, Lord, let me live to see Jane Fonda die!

Well, the traitor bitch went into hiding, for almost 40 years.

But that don’t mean a hill of beans to the mom’s who cried those tears

After losing sons who paid the price, so she could protest war

So you need to send her down to Hell; we don’t want her here no more!

OH, Please let me live to see Jane Fonda die!

I wanna piss and dance on her grave, and then I’ll gladly fry!

I know the price is condemnation, but this will be a celebration!

So, Lord! Please! Let me live, to see Jane Fonda die!
