Podcast cover

President Trump finally weighed in on the abortion bans being passed in the South, and he thinks the GOP needs to get on the same page. He also fired off another reminder to Iran Never to threaten the US ever again.

Tornadoes are ripping through communities across the US this spring, with more to come. Big weather is going crazy with the coverage.

Biden wants to campaign on unity, Arnold chewed a dropkick, some states are having trouble passing weed bills, Google punished Huawei, and Deontay Wilder almost killed someone in the ring.

Rank #4: Hard Factor 5/1: Venezuela Coup, Trump Is Charging Admission to America, and Vampire Facials

Podcast cover
Read more

 Venezuela finally started that coup they're always taking about. They still have a bonus president, but Operation Freedom is in it's final phase.

Trump is tried of immigrants getting into America without paying admission and is hell bent on closing the loopholes in the Asylum process at the US border. Trump announced that he wants to charge fees to those who choose to seek asylum in the US, and will limit the court's time to 180 days to adjudicate all asylum claims (something that can take years now with over 850K backlogged cases), also you wouldn't be eligible to work in the US while you wait for your case to be adjudicated.

It's not exactly like it sounds. But way too many people have gotten HIV from a particular spa in New Mexico.  Pro tip, bring your own needles when getting injections from people that don't have medical degrees.

Rank #7: Hard Factor 5/8: Georgia Will Kill You if You Get an Abortion, Lyft Now Has Self Driving Cars, Great-Grandma Arrested for CBD Oil

Podcast cover
Read more

Bet you're thinking twice about that abortion now, huh? Yesterday Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a “fetal heartbeat” bill into law yesterday. The bill seeks to outlaw abortion after about six weeks, aka potentially in some cases one week after a teenager would tell her friends, “I missed my period.” This bill takes effect on Jan. 1, 2020, at which point you can be sentenced to death if you decide you're no longer interested in your pregnancy. Go Dawgs. 

Waymo, the self driving car company started by Google finally launched their first batch of death self driving vans in Phoenix. The company is starting small, starting with just 10 vans. Also yesterday Lyft announced that is lost 1.1 billion dollars in the first quarter of 2019, a trend that will surely continue as they are hit with countless lawsuits from passengers who drowned in lakes.

Hester Jordan Burkhalter, 69 from North Carolina was arrested at Disney World for possession of a CBD tincture. The great-grandmother who uses the cannabis product for horrible arthritis in her legs, arms and shoulder was jailed for 12 hours in and Orange County, FL jail before charges were dropped. This would break Chill Jonathan's heart.

Rank #9: Hard Factor 5/16: Alabama Fucks - But Don't Abort, British Maury Povich Is Killing People

Podcast cover

Alabama's Governor Kay Ivey is not a fan of abortion. She is 74 and she wants people to know the pregnancy options are binary, carrying pa baby to term, or not be pregnant at all. This is the worst abortion law since... last week. 

Jeremy Kyle is a complete asshole. His talk show was cancelled after a long run of ruining people lives, one person who was recently on the show and committed suicide seems to have been the tipping point. According to a lot of guests and people that previously worked on the Kyle show, the show was very unethical.. which led to, you know, suicides.

Podcast cover

On today's podcast. Donald Trump is not a big fan of people getting automatic US citizenship just because they are born here and he's thinking about doing something about it. Whitey Bulger led a gang, killed a bunch of people also snitched for the FBI before being #1 on their most wanted list for almost 20 years. Jack Nicholson played a character which was loosely based off him which was good, but Johnny Depp actually played him which was bad. All that and he's dead now because he was murdered in prison and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. There is a guy in Texas who wanted to play a version of fuck marry kill with a child that will certainly be the most disturbing thing you hear this Halloween and the outro is balls out nuts as well. Enjoy.

Rank #13: Hard Factor 3/14: Aunt Becky's Daughter Is A Smoke, Mark Zuckerberg Still Sucks, A Priest On The Molester List Is Found Shot To Death, And Trump Smacks Down Boeing

Podcast cover
Read more

The scandal that is shocking some, and not surprising to most who know how rich people operate, has many stars being named for paying off college coaches, as well as manipulating ACT and SAT scores to get their privledged kids into the college of their liking.  We take a look at just how this scheme was operated, who was involved and most importantly, what is the link to Olivia Jade's Instagram profile....

Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg are under yet another investigation involving two large cell phone companies, and once again selling our private data, FUCK  YOU FACEBOOK!!  It looks like Zuckerberg will again be in a lot of official looking rooms, staring at water like he has no idea what it is.  Also Facebook and Instagram were shut down yesterday, maybe still shut down, and everyone now knows just how addicted they are to those two social media sites.

John Capparelli, a priest who was previously named on a list with other child molesting Priests, was found dead in his Nevada home, and police think it may have been a crime of Karma/Homicide.  This guy had a long post being a creepy pedophile, including becoming a high school wresting coach where he forced his team to wear speedos during practice while showing them just how to perform certain moves, most of which ended with his crotch in their faces.  He also ran a website dedicated to erotic sweaty male wrestling.  What a peach, may you not rest in peace you piece of shit.

The man pictured above is Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party. An anti-Brexit "remainer" hit him with a salted caramel and banana milkshake from Five Guys Burgers & Fries. The big news here is that the United Kingdom has Five Guys. 

Does this look like the face of a woman that would jailbreak her boyfriend by calling the jail and pretending to be the sheriff? If you said yes, gold star. This is Maxine Feldstein, her boyfriend Nick Lowe was in Douglas County Jail in Arkansas for charges of identify theft back in Ventura Country, California. Lowe was awaiting transfer to Cali when Feldstein called up pretending to be from the Ventura Sheriffs department to let them know that he could be let because of overcrowding in Ventura County. Douglas County bought it hook line and sinker. Go figure. Now Feldstein is facing 15 years in the slammer.  Their fatal flaw? They didn't leave Arkansas. Bummer. 

Also...

- Trump slams Biden for moving out of Pennsylvania

- The French are lazy and shut down the Eiffel Tower because some guy climbed it

- A Disney World employee stole an animatronic puppet from Disney, obviously for sex.
