Here we go again.  The third round of democratic debates is tonight.  We will be live streaming the shit out of the debates and cracking jokes pre show, during the commercials and post show.  We will also be gambling HEAVILY on the debates.

- Asshole Tesla drivers are falling asleep at the wheel on purpose, in their first or whatever early generation of auto pilot the Teslas are now on, and it's terrifying

- Scientists found a "super earth" with water on the exoplanet that is eight times the size of earth, so you know it's gravity as fuck

- Trump is trying to ban fruit flavored e-cigs.  The American Vaping Association members probably have some serious frowns on their faces, that you can't see because they are covered by giant aggressive pinkish colored clouds

- The Supreme Court Globetrotters had another tip drill and ruled 7-2 against the ban on the asylum ban

Podcast cover

Michael Cohen is headed to minimum security prison for three years, and here's the real shocker… he blames it all on Trump. The USA has finally moved industrial hemp (a crop that can't get you high) off the list of Schedule I narcotics so it can finally be farmed again all across the country. We bring in Hard Factor's resident nutritionist Stefani from Root of Wellness to judge us on our weight loss performance so far; and a lightning round of other headlines, including Post Malone's new Crocs, Voyager 2 making it out of the solar system, and Nancy Pelosi humping the democratic party into submission.

Podcast cover

Well that was wild, the whole fucking cathedral almost burnt to the ground and the whole world was watching it and acting like it was a royal wedding except one where someone got stood up at the alter. This is not the first time Notre Dame was nearly or just straight up destroyed, it happened in World War I as well. No one died, they will rebuild and the baguettes and wine will still be phenomenal in the meantime.

Tiger won the Masters, holy shit let's give him a Medal of Honor, the Nobel Peace Prize, the Pulitzer, a Grammy, a Kennedy Center Honor and the Presidential Medal of Freedom along with his fifth green jacket. President Trump says he is actually going to give Woods the Medal of Freedom, good for Tiger and great for local madams because Tiger is back and he be fucking.

Yesterday was Tax Day and fuuuck Tax Day. Bernie Sanders seemed to be loving it though as he released the last ten years of his tax history and revealed that he became a millionaire when he ran for President in 2016 by selling a shit load of copies of his book as well as whatever else money you make running for President.

Rank #6: Hard Factor 4/18: Apple Settles Lawsuit With Qualcomm, A Mom In CA Banged Her Daughter's Boyfriends, Shady Opioid Doctors Busted, Lightening Round

Podcast cover
Read more

Coral Lytle, of Tulare CA is being accused of banging her daughters two separate freshman boyfriends and bribing them off with booze and smokes.  Sounds like a great deal for a 15 year old boy, because she is kinda hot.....The whole thing fell through when one of the freshman got a conscience and alerted police because he felt guilty shaking her husband's hand.....what an idiot that kid is.

Apple and Qualcomm have finally settled their lawsuit.  What does it mean??  Well this is great news for Iphone users because it means Apple will be able to bring you 5G service quicker, so quicker stream times for porn clips and whatever else you like to look at on your phone.

Federal prosecutors charged 60 physicians and pharmacists Wednesday with illegally handing out bullshit scripts for opioids in what they are calling is the biggest dirty doctor opioid bust ever in the U.S.  It's probably laughable in China.  Doctors were handing out prescriptions to friends, trading them for sex, and even pulling teeth to cover up the prescriptions.

Lightening Round:

- Double Suicide, including the girl who was terrorizing Colorado schools with threats of another Columbine Massacre, she's dead.  Former Peruvian President, Alan Garcia, killed himself while police were in his house to arrest him for charges of money laundering and accepting bribes.

- Scientists now believe that you know you are dead for several minutes when your heart stops and are actually conscience of what is happening around you....bummer.

- The dog that was found swimming 135 miles off Thailand is back on land, safe and sound, maybe..

National Security Advisor John Bolton "Resigns"

On today's show....It's the anniversary of 9/11 and we want everyone out there to NEVER FORGET!!

National Security Advisor, John Bolton, was fired/asked to resign by President Trump yesterday.  The move comes after a string of disagreements over foreign policy, and quite possibly the fact that Bolton's mustache became too much for Trump to handle any longer.

In North Carolina they are holding the last federal elections of 2019 after election fraud was uncovered, and its the race of the Dan's.

News Buffet:

- China may have discovered aliens

- California's homeless are shitting everywhere they please

- El Paso shooting "hero" gets called out for being a fraud

- Antonio Brown has some harsh allegations against him

- Bets

Rank #8: Hard Factor 4/30: Hot Rod Resigns, Russia Is Militarizing Whales and Invisible Aliens are Banging Us

Podcast cover

'Hot" Rod Rosenstein is out as the Deputy Attorney General.  He has resigned effective May 11th and his bosses boss President Donald Trump is probably thrilled since he has asked for treason charges to be considered for the "Hot Rod."  Way to avoid the awkward performance review Rod.

Russia is very likely training whales, dolphins and seals to join their navy.  Floating whale mines is pretty fucking genius if you ask us.  Not writing anything else about this one, but you should listen to the full story on the podcast.

According to a Korean doctor that is a professor at Oxford for the time being, there are a bunch of invisible aliens that are having sex with us to procreate. Maybe this is why we wake up with morning wood!

Trump's Staying Busy

Donald Trump and his administration are busier than a hive of bees.  They are talking about mental health monitoring, 2020 tax cuts, beefing with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen on twitter, and getting policies blocked by California judges just to start the week.

Vaping is Bad Mmmkay

Five people have now died from vaping.  Allegedly.  The CDC is saying we should all stop vaping which is ridiculous.  It looks like the cheap knock off vape pens are riskier than say a Juul and add liquid vitamin e that can cause lipoid pneumonia so just buy a fucking Juul.

Also...

- A couple got $120,000 of free money from the bank and spent it and now they are arrested

- A small German town unanimously elected a Ne0-Nazi as their mayor. He didn't have an opponent, but it's probably because he intimidated the shit out of everyone in that little town of Dipshitze

Rank #11: Hard Factor 5/9: Bill Barr Held In Contempt of Congress, More Big Dicked Heroes Coming From School Shootings, Alcohol Consumption On The Rise Worldwide, Lightening Round

Podcast cover

The House Judiciary Committee voted on Wednesday to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in “contempt of congress” because of his choices to first skip his second day of scheduled hearings, where the D's celebrated by eating fried chicken, and then claiming executive privilege as the basis to not turn over the full un-redacted Mueller Report to the committee.

Alcohol consumption is on the rise, and if you spent any time in the Hard Factor studio you would see that this is VERY true.  Surprisingly Europe is slightly down, and so is New Zealand.  Asia as a continent is way up and India is leading the charge, up 38%!!

We have another hero on our hands.  Kendrick Castillo, who charged the micro-penised shooter at STEM School in CO, gave his life trying to save his fellow classmates.  This is the second time in recent shootings that a student has given their life by rushing the piece of shit who was dead set on killing innocent people.  These guys are heroes, thank you for your service!!!

Rank #12: Hard Factor 4/23: Social Security Is Fucked And Hand Jobs In Florida

Podcast cover
Read more

So stop me if you've heard this before, Social Security is going to run out right before you're old enough to collect. Word on the street is that people are going to be collecting a lot less than 100% of their social security check starting in 2035, but that can change. Baby boomers are good though so don't worry about them.

Elon Musk had his space ship blow up, one of his cars spontaneously combust, and his smelly girlfriend Grimes said she feels like she's in "villain mode" and turned into Thanos because of hanging out with him. What the fuck have you done lately.

Okay enough of the Florida hand job shop in the news already.  Apparently now there is a video of Bob Kraft getting his front drained that is now on sale to the highest bidder.  We propose that Kraft just lean into this whole thing, buy the video himself and play it over the giant screen at Gillette before the first home game right before they drop the banner.  Blurring of any objects onscreen could be a game time decision.

Three churches and four hotels were bombed in Sri Lanka on Easter in an apparently religiously motivated attack. There have been counter attacks, and it's a bad situation.

A Seton Hall professor wanted to “celebrate” Easter by lighting several Catholic churches on fire… good news for everyone that this man is an absolute moron and didn't get away with his plan. Also, a pastor in Ohio encouraged his 12 year-old Sunday school kids to spit on him and cut him with steak knives to simulate the torture that Jesus Christ endured; and aggressive lesson plan to say the least.

69 year-old Larry Mitchell Hopkins has been arrested for leading a militia group on the border, apprehending border crossers they felt were unable to be handled by the Federal authorities. The real star of this story is the mug shot.

Cannabis Cup Recap, Michael Avenatti allegedly stole over a million from Hassan Whiteside and his ex-girlfriend, and Ukraine has elected a comedian as their new president.

The Colorado jogger who claimed he had killed a mountain lion that was "at least fifty pounds" actually just stomped out a baby kitten mountain lion, is a pathetic liar, and is headed straight for the Soft Corner.

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.
