10Tiger In The Garage

Two people from Texas snuck into a derelict home to smoke a little weed and found a tiger inside the garage.Last week, an unidentified man and woman entered an abandoned home in Southeast Houston to relax with a joint. While the human tenants might have been gone, there was still one notable occupant inside the home. The smokers found a male tiger locked inside a “rinky-dink” cage in the garage.[1]After making sure that the large feline was not the result of a weed-induced hallucination, the woman called the authorities. A vet ensured that the tiger was in good health, and animal control officers were able to tranquilize him and move him safely to a temporary home at the local shelter. The tiger has been named “Tyson” in reference to The Hangover and was relocated to the Cleveland Armory Black Beauty Ranch, southeast of Dallas.

9Ultima Thule Gets Weirder

New images of Ultima Thule have come in, and puzzled scientists say they have “never seen something like this orbiting the sun.”At the start of the year, the New Horizons probe sent back our first images of Ultima Thule, which became the most distant object ever explored by humans. Back then, it looked like Ultima Thule was a contact binary made from the collision of two round shapes, which made it resemble a snowman. Of course, New Horizons took more pictures of the cosmic object, but it took them a while to get here. New images from the side suggest that the two lobes are flatter than previously thought and resemble a walnut smashed into a pancake.[2] More importantly, though, this bizarre shape is not something we have encountered before. Scientists now have a new conundrum before them as they try to work out how such an object could have formed.It should be mentioned that the recent shots show Ultima Thule brightly lit only on one edge. While this has given us a better idea of its true form, the final shape might be altered yet again as New Horizons beams more images back to Earth.

8Who Was The Patriarch Of Pizza?

There is controversy in the world of pizza. One researcher has suggested that the man who brought pizza to America might not have been, in fact, the man who brought pizza to America.An Italian immigrant named Gennaro Lombardi is the one typically credited with the accolade. According to legend, he applied for a restaurant license to sell pizza in 1905 and opened Lombardi’s on Spring Street in Manhattan. However, food historian Peter Regas has scoured through old newspapers and uncovered articles which suggest that the true patriarch of American pizza is one Filippo Milone.[3]Curiously, Regas still believes that Lombardi’s was the country’s first pizzeria. He merely asserts that it already existed before Gennaro Lombardi obtained ownership. The researcher claims that Milone opened Lombardi’s under a different name in 1898. He then sold it to Giovanni Santillo, who owned it until Lombardi came along.Independently, food historian Scott Wiener was researching the origins of New York pizza around the same time, and he discovered that Gennaro Lombardi didn’t own the pizza joint until 1908. This lends some validity to Regas’s story, but it remains to be seen if it is accepted by the industry.

7Knowing Your Mark

A telephone scammer picked the wrong target after trying to con the only person in US history to serve as director of both the FBI and the CIA.William Webster might be 94 years old now, but he can still tell when something smells fishy. Therefore, when someone called him up and told him he’d won $15.5 million and a brand-new Mercedes-Benz in the Mega Millions Lottery, he knew it was a scam. When the caller told Webster he had to pay $50,000 to cover the taxes on the prize, he notified the FBI.[4]When the Websters refused to pay, the calls turned into harassment and then threats. On one occasion, the scammer talked to Webster’s wife, Lynda, and described in gory detail what would happen if he were to shoot a sniper’s bullet through her head.The scammer was 29-year-old Keniel Thomas from Jamaica. He had no idea that the FBI had already identified him and that there was a warrant out for his arrest. In late 2017, he flew into New York and was promptly detained. He was sentenced last week to 71 months in prison for extortion using interstate communications.

Jussie Smollett Appears Ready To Admit Hate-Crime Attack Was All An Elaborate Hoax

Multiple sources are just now telling ABC 7 Chicago Eyewitness News that Jussie Smollett and the two men currently being questioned by police staged the entire attack between them all because his character was being written out of the show ‘Empire.’

From The Washington Times:

Chicago police reportedly believe two Nigerian men and Jussie Smollett conspired to fake an attack on the “Empire” actor that supposedly involved racist and homophobic slurs and taunts that Chicago was “MAGA country.”

According to Chicago TV station WLS, the two “persons of interest” arrested late Wednesday and Mr. Smollett have been questioned along those lines all day Thursday by the police.

“Multiple sources tell @ABC7Chicago Eyewitness News Jussie Smollet and the 2 men who are being questioned by police staged the attack – allegedly because his character was being written out of the show Empire,” WLS reporter Rob Elgas tweeted. …

In response, Jussie Smollett is more than likely preparing to come clean about the whole thing. The jig is finally up. There’s no more hiding behind the lies and distortions.

Even the liberal mainstream media is reporting that the attack was faked and is urging Smollett to issue an official statement taking responsibility for his role in the fake hate crime.

“Get ready guys the Jussie Smollett case is about to break wide open. Insane details coming soon…”

Democrats Hate ICE So Much, They’re Protecting Illegals Caught Trying To Buy Guns

The Democratic Party has long had their sights set on undermining the Second Amendment-protected right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms, and have supported a plethora of proposals that would limit or even prohibit that right to certain individuals for a variety of reasons.

Many Democrats have also recently called for the abolition of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, dead-set in opposition to President Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on illegal immigration and secure the nation from criminal illegal aliens.

But what happens when those two issues — strict gun control versus strict immigration control — come into conflict? As it turns out, Democrats seem to prefer to side with illegal immigrants and oppose ICE over strengthening the gun control laws they themselves have proposed — laws that would alert certain authorities when an individual fails a background check for an attempted purchase of a firearm.

Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted on Wednesday, “Democrats in the Judiciary Committee just voted against notifying ICE when an illegal alien fails a background check to buy a gun. They hate ICE so much that they’d keep ICE in the dark when illegals try to get guns!”

"The Whole Project Is A Green Disaster"

OUCH: Former Obama economic adviser slams AOC for making ‘the most economically ignorant statement he’s ever read’ and LOL

If we needed another reminder that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not really a Democrat but a Socialist we need look no further than this tweet from Steven Rattner. Never heard of him? We hadn’t either so we did a little Google and whaddya know, Steven was on Obama’s auto task force and was an economic adviser of sorts.


So we’re thinking it’s safe to say Steven is a Democrat and even he seems to think AOC isn’t the brightest crayon in the box.

Let us reiterate here, this guy worked for Obama.

Completely agree. Unfortunately, politicians on boths sides are all too eager to stoke fear, rather the speak the truth. Depending on which politician you're listening you, you'd think that either illegal immigrants or big corporations are causing the destruction of America.
See Michael D. Klett's other Tweets
And as usual, the AOC zealots are jumping in front of their lady fair; wonder if these same people were Obama zombies as well? Life is funny, right?

Dude. He’s an Obama guy....
