scary-clownTeens charged with ‘terroristic threats’ after creepy clown abduction posts on Facebook

Four teenagers in Georgia have been charged with making “terrorist threats” after allegedly posting Facebook messages threatening to abduct children while dressed as clowns.

The arrests come in the wake of a craze of creepy clown sightings that have spread fear amongst children and parents alike, and prompted police to establish if any real threat exists amidst the hoaxes. Reported sightings also sparked a spate of school closures.

Clowns are pretty scary. Pressure cooker bombs not so much, I suppose.

oilSocialism’s left Venezuela a ‘walking dead’ nation

Here’s socialism at its finest: Venezuela is now forced to import oil from the United States, the devil in the eyes of the regime.

Yes, the South American energy powerhouse is still pumping 2.4 million barrels a day on its own — but that’s a million barrels below the level before Hugo Chavez took over in 1999, and down 350,000 barrels from just last year.

Worse, production in key fields has reduced the state to buying 50,000 barrels a day of US light crude to blend with the domestic petroleum for a product fit for export.

celebvideoReally Freaked Out Celebrities Make Video Imploring People to Not Vote for Trump

Technically, they’re begging people to vote, just not for Trump. Which will, in all likelihood, compel even more people to vote for him. Yes, there’s nothing like the smell of fresh, smug arrogance is there? One of the “celebrities” is actually holding back tears as she exclaims “Your vote matters!” It does. And so does a future where the new normal isn’t controlled by a zombie army of terrorists and where Americans don’t have to worry about a bomb around every corner or getting stabbed in the mall. Just saying.

I have nothing but contempt for these people, whoever they are, and their fear delights me.
