‘Her death is funny’: Is this a shameful subtweet of the late Bre Payton, or just a shameful tweet?

As Twitchy reported Friday, Bre Payton, staff writer for The Federalist, passed away at age 26. Tests determined that she had contracted the H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis and slipped into a coma.

Guy Benson has an assignment for ‘reporters on the ground with Pelosi on her mid-shutdown Hawaiian vacation’

The murder of a police officer in California by a suspect who is in the U.S. illegally has many asking (rhetorically) why more in the mainstream media aren’t all over the story, considering so many Democrats support sanctuary policies: This is the part that outrages people.

Huh: When Mother Jones suggests approaching white supremacists with empathy, it’s ‘provocative’

Bethany Mandel says it’s starting to feel like a cosmic joke, and she’s right.

Remember back in mid-November when Rep. Eric Swalwell tried to quash the idea of a well-armed militia even having a chance against a government that decided to confiscate guns? “The government has nukes,” he reminded law-abiding gun owners, adding, “they’re legit” for good measure.
