Lemony Snicket funds series of unfortunate baby murders with $1 million Planned Parenthood gift

Daniel Handler, who writes children's books under the pen name Lemony Snicket (and in turn inspired a hit Jim Carrey film), announced on Twitter Monday that he was giving one million dollars to Planned Parenthood.

" & I are giving 1 million dollars to . We’ve been very fortunate, and good fortune should be shared with noble causes," he said in the tweet.

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America quickly tweeted out thanks to Handler and his wife Lisa Brown for the gift:

Shameless! Democrats, media imply Marco Rubio is a Nazi sympathizer

How can you tell Marco Rubio is on the political rise? Democrats and the media are both desperately trying to discredit him. The latest attack, however, is so incredibly over-the-top, it is amazing that anyone is taking it seriously.

According to a report by The Dallas Morning News, Rubio was in Dallas Tuesday for a fundraiser at the home of Harlan Crow, a real estate developer and one of the city’s wealthiest citizens. He is also a Republican, and often supports conservative candidates. However, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz blasted Rubio for holding a fundraiser in Crow’s home, and made this outrageous statement:
Senator Marco Rubio will hold a fundraiser in a home that features two paintings by Adolf Hitler, a signed copy of Hitler’s autobiography, Mein Kampf, and a cabinet full of place settings and linens used by the Nazi leader. An event at a home with items like these is appalling at any time of the year. Adding insult to injury, Rubio is holding this event on the eve of the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur. Holding an event in a house featuring the artwork and signed autobiography of a man who dedicated his life to extinguishing the Jewish people is the height of insensitivity and indifference. There’s really no excuse for such a gross act of disrespect.
Sounds terrible, right? Marco Rubio holding a fundraiser in the home of a Nazi sympathizer would be a terrible thing. Of course, as Wasserman Schultz is prone to do, she misrepresented the truth to attack Rubio, and The Dallas Morning News did nothing in its reporting to contradict it. What the Morning News failed to mention was the reason why those items are in the Crow home. Rather than being part of a Hitler shrine, as Schultz implies, the items are housed in a museum-like library of historical artifacts Crow keeps on his property. It is one of the largest and most respected private collections of historical artifacts in the country. We know this because The Morning News itself reported on it earlier this year. Here is an excerpt from their coverage from April 2015:
Over the past 40 years, Crow has collected thousands of documents, manuscripts and works of art that span centuries. “Many people have their own hobbies and have vocations,” he said. “American history is mine.”
Among his favorites, Crow counts an Abraham Lincoln syllogism about the evils of slavery, a copy of Poor Richard’s Almanac and a letter written in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, after his first trip to the New World. The collection has paintings by Renoir and Monet and by Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
A sculpture garden includes likenesses of Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, the late British prime minister.
It also has busts of dictators, including Russian communist leader Vladimir Lenin, Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and Yugoslav dictator Josip Broz Tito. Crow has said the collection is not intended as a celebration of repressive regimes but to preserve a part of world history.
Crow said invited guests visit the library about once a week. They range from single visitors to groups of 50 or 60 people. The library drew one of its largest crowds last year, when several hundred people attended a Park Cities Historic and Preservation Society tour.
We can expect Schultz to omit the fact that the Hitler artifacts were part of a historical collection, but to have The Dallas Morning News print her allegation and let it go unchallenged is shameful. Then again, since it comes at the expense of a Republican, are we really surprised?

Suddenly, when it allows them to attack Marco Rubio, Democrats are now staunch defenders of the Jewish people. If Schultz and her liberal friends care about the Jewish people so much, why aren't they supporting Israel as well?  

Conservatives furious over Ann Coulter's anti-Semitic, anti-Israel tweets

With a handful of tweets Wednesday night, Ann Coulter may have single-handedly kicked herself out of the conservative movement. The author and commentator raised the ire of many, and is being accused of anti-Semitism, after criticizing several Republican candidates during the Presidential debate for their support of Israel.

Coulter took to Twitter Wednesday night (September 16) as the top 11 candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination participated in the CNN Presidential Debate at the Ronald Reagan Library.

Live-tweeting as the debate unfolded, Coulter managed to unload criticism on every candidate throughout the night, except for Donald Trump, whom she has supported in recent weeks.

Coulter initially seemed annoyed when several candidates mentioned their support of Israel should they become President, tweeting this:

Coulter then made her feelings on Israel (and Jews) clear with her next tweet:

Coulter’s ranting tweets caught many by surprise, with some wondering if she had been hacked. However, Coulter doubled down in later tweets, complaining that the candidates were pandering to Israel, Jews, and Evangelicals. When someone called her tweet about Jews offensive, she joked that she had much more offensive ones. She defended her comments to a number of Twitter users who called the tweet offensive.

Her tweet also unleashed several anti-Semitic responses in support of her anti-Israel stance, including one tweet that included a drawing of someone wearing a Star of David defecating into Uncle Sam’s mouth, which is too graphic to include here.

Coulter also complained that the Republicans were pandering to the pro-life crowd, accused the candidates (except Trump) of wanting to bring terrorists to America as refugees, made fun of Chris Christie’s weight and Rand Paul’s hair, and called Carly Fiorina “annoying.” Only Trump escaped her vitriol.

Debate Fact Check: Trump DOES take outside money

Part of Donald Trump’s appeal to GOP voters was his insistence that he was so rich that he could not be bought by special interests and didn’t need outside money.

During last night's debate at the Reagan Library, he again asserted that he is taking no money from anyone. It isn't a new claim. He has claimed that he had plenty of money to fund his campaign, and criticized Republican candidates who sought out donors. “I wish good luck to all of the Republican candidates that traveled to California to beg for money,” he recently tweeted.

It doesn't take much research to find that Trump's claims are completely false. He has, for some time, taken in donations. 

A visit to DonaldJTrump.com now shows the real estate developer has added a donation page (shown below), where supporters can give as much as $2,700 to the self-professed billionaire’s campaign.

Trump himself has not addressed the donation page, nor answered whether he thinks supporters will see the move as hypocritical or a flip-flop on previous statements.

Why can't an Ivy League graduate become a U.S. citizen?

The immigration reform debate has been raging for years, but rarely do we see the perspective of actual immigrants, and their experiences working through our dysfunctional system. Contrary to popular belief, becoming an American citizen or gaining legal residency is not a matter of "getting in line" and filling out paperwork. Just ask William Han.

Han is from New Zealand, and came to America on a student visa, with dreams of one day becoming a U.S. citizen, until those dreams hit reality. Han has earned two degrees from Ivy League colleges, and for the past 15 years, has tried to become an American citizen. In a recent essay for Vox.com, he has documented perhaps the most complete breakdown of how difficult it is to become an American, and outlines the various obstacles and costs even he has been unable to overcome. If an Ivy League graduate cannot navigate our dysfunctional system, how does a family from Central America or Asia with little money and no legal resources stand a chance? This is why we have illegal immigration; many of these immigrants do not want to flaunt our laws; they are often left with no other choice.

While Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be tracking down true criminals like Kate Steinle's murderer or gang members, they focus on easy targets for deportation, like families trying to gain legal status or students like Han. Here's an excerpt from his essay:
When the rest of the world send America its best and brightest, America says 'Go away.' Numerous American friends, when the subject of my immigration status came up, have said to me things to the effect of, "Why don't you just become a citizen?" To the Americans I have known, it really seems that people, or at least law-abiding people like me, should be able to just go down to the DMV, fill out some paperwork, and get citizenship. Time and again I have had to disabuse my friends of this misconception. What matters when it comes to obtaining citizenship is your "status" while you're in America, and your status can be difficult to change. Years spent as a student do not count. Neither do years on a work visa unless your employer is willing to sponsor your green card.

Feminist choir replaces "Jesus" with "Hillary Clinton" in praise hymn

Here's something that will make your stomach turn. A self-proclaimed "women's alternative chorus" named "Voices of the Heart" is caught on video changing a hymn, removing "Jesus" and replacing it with "Hillary."

Yeah, THAT Hillary. The choir sings "Woke up this morning with my mind set on Hillary," accenting it with a "hallelujah." Where's a bolt of lightning when you need it?

You won't believe how much time Obama has spent on the golf course

This weekend, CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller reported that President Obama played the 250th round of golf of his presidency on Saturday. Knoller also mentioned an interview Obama did with CBS back in 2009, in which he said he enjoys playing golf because it gets him "out of the bubble" of the White House and outside for six hours. Think about that - our President is spending six hours at a time on any given day out on the golf course. Only our President could do that and still keep his job.

We decided to do the math and figure out exactly what sort of impact Obama's golf hobby is having on his job. 250 rounds of golf, at six hours per round, equals out to 1,500 hours. That means President Obama has played golf the equivalent of 24 hours a days for nearly 63 days of his Presidency. That's obscene.  

That time Stone Cold Steve Austin smacked Donald Trump (VIDEO)

Just last year, the possible future President of the United States was hamming it up on television with a role on WWE wrestling. Donald Trump participated in a WWE storyline in which he bet his wrestler could beat Vince McMahon's wrestler, and the loser would get their head shaved. Of course, Trump won, and McMahon lost his hair. However, Trump managed to tick off Steve Austin, who served as the match referee. Austin then delivered the "stunner," to Trump. Mind you, this all happened as he was considering a second Presidential run. Leader of the free world, folks.
