Major League Baseball and People magazine have teamed up to honor the nation’s military heroes at the 2013 All-Star Game on July 16. Voting for finalists in the “Tribute for Heroes” contest will continue until June 30.

Conservative actor Dean Cain, a big supporter of America’s heroes, took to Twitter to share his pick: Iraq War veteran J.W. Cortes of “Stars Earn Stripes.” Cain partnered with Chris Kyle on the show.

Cortes is one of three finalists selected to represent the Yankees.

NYT columnist finds and returns Courtney Love’s cell phone

New York Times columnist Frank Bruni made an unusual discovery by finding Courtney Love’s cell phone. Bruni then set out to return the phone to its rightful owner.

The NYT might not have wanted to find out what was on the phone, but the editor of Gawker sure did:

New York Times management might wish Bruni had at least forced Gawker to buy 20 subscriptions to the paper.

The New York Post would have liked to have gotten their hands on the phone as well:

Maybe next time.

Watch Kanye West Joke About Kim’s Exes, Repudiate Racism In His BET Visionary Award Acceptance Speech

“For one of the first times in my life, I understand how it is to feel humbled.”

During a busy few weeks in which he debuted a new clothing line, new music, had dinner with Taylor Swift, and finally got around to listening to Beck’s album, Kanye West appeared at the 2015 BET Honors to accept this year’s Visionary Award.

BET.

The ceremony, taped weeks ago, was broadcast last night. Kanye accepted the award with a 9-minute speech that followed a tribute featuring statements by close friends and associates, including Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Common.

BET

 

In his speech, Kanye opened up about his marriage to Kim Kardashian and the stereotypes surrounding interracial marriage. He joked that Kim wasn’t a stereotypical woman after a rich black guy because she’s dated unnamed “broke” black guys.

Kanye also spoke out against racism and consumerism, saying that all of humanity is one “macro” race.

Don’t think that because we can afford this custom Balmain suit that we’re free. And don’t think that because we can buy a $300,000 car that we’re free. And don’t think that because 3% of a gated community has colored people in it that we’re free. It’s the mentality, the slave mentality, where we all eventually become slaves to that car, slaves to the perception, slaves to the idea of being cool.

Watch the full, unedited speech below.

Gov. Chris Christie looking svelte on victory cake [photos]

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie looks to win re-election easily tonight, but until the final numbers are in, reporters and guests had better keep their hands off the celebratory cake. To be honest, it’s pretty impressive.

Sarah Silverman thinks Hobby Lobby is now the government, or something

Do you even know what the heck you’re talking about? Clearly not.

The left wing idiocy will just not go away. You would think that at least one or two of these useful idiots might have accidentally stumbled upon a clue since the ruling, but no.

thing-that-couldnt-die

Stupid incarnate.

Huh? A craft store is doing this? Amazing.

With scrapbooking supplies and glitter, naturally.

Yeah, pretty sure that ship sailed already.

Pro tip: Stop using words you don’t understand.

Because not wanting the government to force you to pay for something against your conscience is EXACTLY LIKE killing Jews.

Repressive tolerance.

Twitterer who threatened to assassinate Mitt Romney is 15-year-old boy

http://twitter.com/#!/JacobWilcoxen1/status/255304546346205185

As Twitchy reported on Sunday, a Twitter user who goes by the handle @kyle__kyle threatened to assassinate Mitt Romney. The user later removed his tweets, claiming that the threats were only a joke.

It turns out that the person who made the threats is, in fact, a 15-year-old boy named Kyle Stusse. After Twitchy broke the story, Stusse faced a backlash over his vile tweets and was apparently contacted by the Secret Service. A death threat is a death threat, and regardless of Stusse’s age, it deserves to be taken seriously. One of Stusse’s friends disagreed:

https://twitter.com/JacobWilcoxen1/status/255349455639961600

And he mounted a #FreeKyle hashtag campaign to defend Stusse:

The hashtag quickly gathered steam, and others followed suit:

Stusse, for his part, insists that he has learned his lesson — the hard way:

i was only joking about my romney comments, i know now that they are serious and should not be put on twitter even as a joke…

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

i dont take national security as a joke now. dont kill me please.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

never in my life will i ever take the tinyest fraction of a step toward any of the U.S goverment officials with viloent intentions. NEVER

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

never had any tru baad feelings toward romney. just want Obama to win, thats all.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

I am 15 and pose no real threat to anybody.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

@wildpitchisab I am no real threat, I made a joke. I now realize that the joke is serious and should bot br put on twitter.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

@wildpitchisab I already said it was a joke and I do not have any real threats to anyone. This has no concern for you please stay out of it.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

@AltConservative I didn't even think it would be a big deal. I now know this is serious and should not be joked about.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

@AltConservative I never had any real intentions of even attempting to harm anyone. My tweets were bit serious.

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

@kyle__kyle @AltConservative not* not serious

— kyle stusse (@kyle__kyle) October 8, 2012

The road to maturity is clearly a very long one for Stusse. And while his contrition is likely genuine (it’s amazing what a reality check can do), he needs to understand that actions have consequences — at any age.

#FUCKROMNEY: Hate and death threats greet Romney’s RNC speech

Conservatives chronicle Romney death threats, face false reports

Israel Approves $46 Million Plan To Absorb European Jews Following Terror Attacks

“We are bracing ourselves and calling for a mass immigration from Europe,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

The Israeli Cabinet on Sunday approved a $46 million plan to finance the arrival of thousands of Jewish people expected to immigrate from Europe, following a number of anti-Semitic attacks on the continent in recent months.

Just hours after a gunman in Copenhagen, Denmark, fatally shot a man outside a synagogue as part of twin terrorist attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country was ready to welcome Jews “home.”

“I would like to say to all of Europe’s Jews, and Jews everywhere, Israel is the home of every Jew,” he said in a Facebook post.

Under Israeli law, Jewish immigrants to Israel are entitled to financial support. The multi-million-dollar package approved Sunday will finance the arrival of what the government estimates will be thousands of Jews from Ukraine, France, and Belgium.

While much of eastern Ukraine has been left devastated by civil war, France and Belgium have been the target of anti-Semitic attacks in recent months. In Paris last month, four Jewish men were killed inside a kosher supermarket by an Islamist gunman, while four people were killed at a Jewish museum in Brussels in May 2014.

“This wave of attacks is expected to continue,” Netanyahu told his Cabinet. “Jews deserve security in every country, but we say to our Jewish brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.”

However, Netanyahu’s comments were met with anger by Copenhagen’s chief rabbi, Jair Melchior.

“People from Denmark move to Israel because they love Israel, because of Zionism. But not because of terrorism,” Melchior told the Associated Press. “If the way we deal with terror is to run somewhere else, we should all run to a deserted island.”

On Sunday, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt lay flowers outside the synagogue where a security guard was shot dead.

“Our thoughts go to the whole of the Jewish community today,” she told reporters. “They belong in Denmark. They are a strong part of our community, and we will do everything we can to protect the Jewish community in our country.”

Netanyahu is in the middle of a re-election campaign, with elections scheduled for March 17.

Viewers wonder: Why is Florida state attorney Angela Corey smiling so big?

Florida state attorney Angela Corey just lost her shoddy case against George Zimmerman, but she’s smiling like she just won the Super Bowl and is about to head to nearby Disney World. Trial observers are scratching their heads. And Trayvon Martin supporters are…livid.

Say cheese!

The creepiness has even been immortalized in haiku.

Bet she wasn’t smiling when she got this…

Get off the stage already, lady.

Angling for her own cable news show? Failing upward is, after all, a government privilege.

‘You Eric(k)s all look alike’: Huh? Bolling & Erickson, separated at birth?

Heh.

Really?

bolling-erickson

We suppose this is a bit less baffling than the time The Daily attributed tweets from RedState’s Erick Erickson to BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith. A bit.

According to Erickson, he gets a surprisingly large number of tweets intended for Fox News host Eric Bolling. One example:

Remember These 90’s Foods? No? Good. They Were Absolutely Awful. Ewww.

The 1990s were a wonderful time by most metrics, except of course when it comes to junk food. In a lot of ways it was a sort of renaissance for junk food. Never before had Americans had so much choice and variety of deliciously terrible food.

Sadly, it was also a bad time for the internal organs of all those people enjoying said junk food. If you’re having a hard time remembering your favorites, enjoy this list of the 20 worst (and most delicious) junk foods of the 90’s. My stomach hurts just thinking about #13. 

1.) WWF Ice Cream Bars.

There’s no better way to enjoy your favorite wrestlers than by literally eating them.

2.) EZ Squirt Ketchup.

Who ever thought that colored ketchup was a good idea?

3.) Rice Krispies Treats Cereal.

Scientists said it was impossible to pack that much sugar into a breakfast cereal. They were wrong.

4.) Dunk-Aroos.

In a pinch, these also made a great lunch.

5.) Squeezits.

No nutritional value at all.

6.) 3D Doritos.

Why did they ever discontinue these?

7.) Fruit Stripe Gum.

This had one of the strangest tastes ever.

8.) Vanilla Coke.

I think you can still buy this in some stores. But why would you want to?

9.) Fruitopia.

Needless to say, this did not taste like fruit.

10.) Disney popsicles.

A disappointing frozen treat.

11.) Gatorade Gum.

For those rare times you’re thirsty and want gum. Which is basically never.

12.) Berry Berry Kix.

Trading on the good name of Kix cereal to create something horrific.

13.) Surge.

This should never have been legal. Ever.

14.) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pies.

Just because they have the Ninja Turtles on the package, does not make them any better for you.

15.) Crispy M&M’s.

I’ll admit, they were tastier than they looked.

16.) Pepsi AM.

Soda for breakfast, what could go wrong?

17.) Hi-C.

A 90’s school lunch was not complete without one (or two) of these.

18.) Josta Soda.

The precursor to energy drinks. Yuck.

19.) Butterfinger BB’s.

Who could forget Bart Simpson’s snack of choice?

20.) Oreo O’s.

How about a big bowl of type 2 diabetes for breakfast?

(Via: Distractify)

Oh man I’m getting junk food flashback. (Especially of drinking Surge and then becoming severely depressed when it was discontinued. I think that’s a sign of withdrawal. ) It wasn’t my proudest moment, but it was delicious at the time. The three cavities, thought? Not so much.
