Self-Described Smarty Jimmy Kimmel Presents Stupid, Bigoted Anti-Christian Skit

Saturday afternoon, Christian Toto at NewsBusters chronicled how Jimmy Kimmel has gone from being an “aw, shucks” comedian to “a hard-left comic” who believes (Kimmel’s words) that “every talk show host is a liberal … because it requires a level of intelligence.” That sad, ignorant transformation was on display Friday night, as Kimmel attempted and failed to make a genuine point in a restaurant skit which intended to ridicule a Bakersfield, California bakery which refuses to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples.

CNN’s Conflicted Evan Perez: Nunes Memo ‘Was a Dud,’ But Dangerous

On Friday, CNN’s Evan Perez insulted Congress as people who “don’t have any idea how the law works” relating to surveillance, claiming that “grave harm … was done by the release of the Republican (Nunes) memo even though it was a dud.” How interesting, given that Perez knows, because he reported it in 2013, that Obama administration committed abuses serious enough to warrant an October 2011 FISA Court rebuke. Additionally, the now-FBI-defending Perez should know that in October 2016, the Obama administration admitted that it never changed its ways.

A citizen exercising his second amendment rights saved the life of a Utah police officer who was being attacked by a would-be robber, reports Fox News.

In a bizarre tale, an unidentified police officer confronted Paul Douglas Anderson, after seeing the man’s feet flailing out the back of clothing donation bin in Springville, Utah. The police officer told the suspect to get out of the bin. Anderson complied but began acting suspiciously. Anderson was told to remove his hands from his pockets and refused to do so. Moments later, he started punching the police officer in the face.

That is when Derek Meyer happened to drive by the scene, and quickly sprang into action.

“I carry a gun to protect me and those around me, but primarily I carry a gun to protect my family first and foremost,” Meyer, who has a concealed-carry permit, told Fox News. “Outside of that, if I were to use my gun to protect anyone it would be law enforcement or military personnel.”

Meyer also added that he wants to share his stories because there aren’t enough “good stories from responsible, gun-owning people.”

Meyer pointed the gun at Anderson and demanded he stop. The suspect then fled the scene and was later found hiding underneath a trailer. Anderson was arrested. The officer is currently recovering from a fractured eye socket and other damage. No shots were fired. …
