2017 or 1984?

George Orwell’s magnum opus was his dystopian novel 1984 in which humanity lived in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation. Kind of sounds like today..

Pray For Manchester

Ariana Grande recently had a concert in Manchester and as concert goers were leaving towards the exit an explosive went off. Here is the timeline the day of the event as reported by TMZ: 3:25 PM PT – Several people present – including actress Julie Hesmondhalgh from “Coronation Street” – say there was no explosion but rather a loud bang, which created a stampede and people were injured trying to get out of the facility. 3:30 PM PT – London police just said, “Emergency services responding to serious incident at Manchester Arena. Avoid the area.” 3:45 PM PT – Greater Manchester Police say there are a “number of confirmed fatalities and others injured.” It’s unclear if the injuries are from the stampede or from a blast. 4:15 PM PT – Law enforcement says at least 20 people are dead. A video posted on social media purportedly shows a flash in the arena (left side of above video), and then a boom is heard. 4:25 PM PT – People connected with the show tell us they heard what sounded like an explosion in the rotunda area where merchandise is sold – in the venue but outside the seating area. There was an immediate stampede for the exits. 4:50 PM PT – Police are now treating this as a terrorist act. There are reports the explosive device was a “nail bomb” … which explains the images of victims, several bleeding profusely on the scene. 3:15 AM PT – The death toll has risen to 22.

Sinkhole Forms In Front Of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Sign From God?


A sinkhole opened up in front of President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach estate, also known as the Winter White House. This, of course, opens the flood gates for metaphors. Was it a result of President Trump recently cradling a mysterious glowing orb in Saudi Arabia? Or maybe it had something to do with the sweet nothings he whispered to Western Wall of Israel? A common theme is the vast amount of time and money that Trump has sunk into Mar-a-Lago during his trips there. Trump’s trips to Mar-a-Lago, in addition to his estate in New Jersey, have already cost the tax payers an incredible $26 million. In addition, Trump has hosted many world leaders at Mar-a-Lago including China’s Xi Jinping and Japan’s Shinzo Abe to name a few.

Bill O’Reilly Fired, Hold Applause

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. After multiple sexual harassment claims and the recent history within Fox News, advertisers backed away from Bill O’Reilly’s show which lead to Fox releasing him. Funny how he cost Ludacris his Pepsi gig 12 years ago and while he has been fired, Luda is sitting at the top of the box office.
