Spotify Australia Claims This Song Is The Number One Sex Song

What are the best songs to make love to? Anything from Barry White works (if you can hold in the laughter). Marvin Gaye is a classic, and those who are more attuned to today’s music can get down to the Weeknd. Some people even dig Olivia Newton-John. But if you’re a Star Wars fan—and if you happen to be Australian— there’s only one band that’s going to put you in the mood.

And it’s the Star Wars Cantina band.

That, anyway, is the word from Spotify, which reported that Australians love banging to Frank Ocean, Trey Songz, and Kings of Leon. But also these dudes.


CPAC organizer denounces alt-right as left-wing fascist group

One of the first speeches at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference challenged the media to stop referring to the “alt-right,” a small, far-right movement that seeks a whites-only state and that strongly backed Donald Trump for president, as conservative.

“There is a sinister organization that is trying to warp its way into our ranks,” said Dan Schneider, the executive director of the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC. “We must not be deceived by hateful, left-wing fascist group.”

Over a few confusing minutes, Schneider argued that the “alt-right,” a term coined then popularized by the National Policy Institute’s Richard Spencer, was philosophically left-wing because it departed from his definition of conservatism, in which “the individual” is sovereign.

“They hate the Constitution. They hate free markets. They hate pluralism,” Schneider said. “Fascists tend to want big government control.”


Oh, do not go there, you fucking assholes. They are *YOUR* problem, not ours. *YOURS*. Get that right. See? They're so batshit crazy that they're blaming us for their problem, like they always do. Argh!!!!

So who is more likely to be arrested for bathroom crimes again?


This sums it up!

This is not Trumps America!: Passengers rejoice when man accused of racism is kicked off flight

“Goooodbyeee raaacists!”
That was the blunt — and unquestionably sarcastic — message one heated passenger delivered to a man and a woman as they were being kicked off a United Airlines flight Saturday evening for causing a disturbance that was blamed on racist comments.
The confrontation on Flight 1113 from Chicago to Houston began several minutes earlier, when a Pakistani man and woman wearing traditional clothing were boarding the plane, according to VHF affiliate KHOU.
As the couple placed their bags in an overheard bin, a male passenger — who was not identified by the airline — asked the couple if they had a bomb in their luggage, another passenger sitting nearby told KHOU.
“That’s not a bomb in your bag, is it?” the man said, according to the passenger who was not identified by KHOU. The passenger added that the couple did not immediately hear the comment, which prompted the man to repeat his remark.

“Happy flight home,” he added seconds later while his female companion holds her middle finger up to the person filming. “I hope you stay there.”
“Get out of here,” a woman responded. “Racists aren’t welcome in America! This is not Trump’s America!”
“Goooodbyeee raaacists!” the woman added.
“Hey, I’ll come back, but you’ll be gone,” the man said as he walked away.
Jonathan Guerin, a United Airlines spokesman, told The Washington Post the man and woman understood why they were asked to leave the plane and calm down. They were placed on a later flight bound for Houston, but Guerin said he didn’t know if the Texas city was their final destination.


Good for the passengers, these people were horrible!

Lol! #TinyTrump is trending on Twitter!

Here's a few good ones:






17 Times Trump Tweeted About Obama's Presidency That Could Be About His Own

Winning the 2016 presidential election hasn’t changed how much Donald Trump takes to Twitter to speak his mind. And before he was tweeting about how historic his not-that-historic Electoral College win was, he was tweeting about what a bad president Barack Obama made.

Trump has a backlog of years of tweets aimed at complaining about Obama’s job performance, his vacations, and of course, the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. But now that Trump is president, he has his own batch of criticisms to deal with. It also doesn’t help that a lot of the things Trump criticized Obama about are things Trump has done, or is doing, himself. Other Trump tweets sound like they could easily apply to the Trump presidency.

Here are 17 Twitter moments in which a mean Trump tweet about Obama could have been a mean Trump tweet about Trump — starting with the ones about Obama’s 2012 election.


Reminder: Trump lost the popular vote against Hillary Clinton by almost 3 million votes. He is president thanks to the Electoral College.



Trump’s position on Russia has been soft since before he took the presidency, and it’s well-documented that he’s never had a mean word to say about President Vladimir Putin. Like when he talked to Bill O’Reilly.



Reminder: Trump often only takes press questions from friendly conservative media.



Reminder: Trump complains often about “fake news” and unnamed sources. He often does it in tweets. Like this one:



Holy crap!

Why do we need to understand Trump voters? They need to understand us.

They don't. At all. They do not, nor do they care to understand us. Their rhetoric is everywhere. 40 years of Rush Limabugh, AM hate radio, and the conservative's just total fucking hatred for the "liberal media" which doesn't exist anymore gave us Trump. Conservative talking points dominate the news. Need proof? There's 32 channels of nonstop religion broadcasting 24 / 7 on DirecTV, yet we only get one hour per week of "Real Time With Bill Maher" and a half hour per week of "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver". And both shows are on the same channel. Conservative books dominate the bookshelves. Need proof? Just browse your local airport bookstore or the bookstore at your local Costco. Conservative guests dominate the talk shows. Need proof? Just watch Meet The Press. Look at Milo on Maher this week - you hear more about that than you do about Larry Wilmore. In fact, Trump supporters will tell you that Larry Wilmore came off as hostile and arrogant.

Their refusal to work with the other side will ultimately hurt them in the long run. In fact in the election, more people voted against Obama than they did for Trump. They don't know why they've been brainwashed to hate liberals, they've been told to do so by AM hate radio and Fox News pundits. They don't know why they hate us, they only hate us for the perceived notion that their precious guns are going to be taken away. Or that we hate Jesus. We don't. But if anything the NRA should be thanking democrats - anytime one of us is in power, sales of their killing machines go through the roof!

We have no voice now. We live in a world where "alternative facts" and "fake news" are a thing. I mean seriously, at one point Les Moonves, the president of CBS, the very "liberal media" that the republicans rail against, said that Trump wasn't good for America, but he was good for ratings. You say Trump spends too much time playing golf? They'll tell you the statistics on that are fake. You say the Bowling Green Massacre never happened? They'll ask you for proof. I mean, shit, they're still hung up on Pizzagate! They think that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta actually ran a child sex ring out of the basement of Comet Ping Pong. And you say that Comet Ping Pong never had a basement to begin with! They'll tell you it's a cover up.

What they need to understand is that we don't want theocracy. We don't want a fascist dictatorship. If you've seen history, you know what happens to tyrants. The first amendment guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press. The republicans have already knocked off freedom of the press, and now they're coming for freedom of religion. These are things that make America the great place to live that it is, and now these things are being taken away from us. These are rights, not privileges. We also want unions to make things better for workers. They don't. They're perfectly fine with CEOs making 150 times what the average worker does.

There was a time when we fought wars to keep people like Trump from getting power. And the republicans have become everything they hate about democrats. Safe spaces? They have plenty of them. They need their own fucking news network because they don't trust the major ones. Infowars was founded on the premise that the "mainstream media lies to you 24/7". Snowflakes? Look at Andrew Puzder - when the mere rumor that he wasn't going to be confirmed was flying around, bowed out quietly with his tail between his legs! Boycotts? They've had six threatened boycotts since the election because they're so thin skinned. We've had just one. They say we need to grow a spine. They're so spineless that they don't want to be seen in public because they're afraid of protestors following them! Hey, Obama got death threats on an almost daily basis while he was in office, and he sucked it up and went out in public. Can't say Mitch McConnell or Trump himself will go out in public very much.

If they actually took time to understand us, that would be one thing. But they want us gone. Dead. They would prefer we didn't exist. Don't believe me? Check your Twitter and Facebook feeds. They want us gone. They drink out of their "liberal tears" coffee mugs with pride and wear Trump t-shirts. I've seen extreme violence and hatred advocated toward us since the election. They wear their anti PC sentiments with pride. If you dare speak against Trump or any republican, you get called a libtard, a Marxist, out of touch elitist, or worse and run out of town. We don't need to understand them. They need to understand us. We need to turn that line of thinking around.

Now here's a campaign I can get behind!


John Oliver Discusses Trump's Toxic Relation With Putin Using Techno Music & Pyrotechnics

This week, Last Week Tonight turned its attention to Russia, which, John Oliver joked with viewers, is the country that gave us “potentially the 45th President of the United States.”

Donald Trump has many ties to Russia and hopes to improve relations with President Vladimir Putin. The New York Times has even reported that Trump’s campaign had numerous contacts with Russian intelligence during his presidential run and after, which lead to the resignation of Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser.

As Oliver says, “It’s a bit weird that has been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than to Meryl Streep.”

Trump has made no secret of his belief that it would “be nice if we got along with Russia” — to which Oliver counters, “It would be also be nice if you could walk right up to a bear and hug it.”

To remind Trump that being friends with a man like Putin can be a risky proposition, Oliver staged a cheesy techno-pop song complete with dancers and a driving beat to drive home the point.


We have to stop letting the republicans own the narrative that they are loyal to the constitution.

They are not. They are loyal to NO ONE. Period. End of debate. I will repeat: they are loyal to NO ONE.

If they were loyal to the constitution, they would have let Obama nominate Merrick Garland. If they were loyal to the constitution, they would not be unleashing the all out assault on the press that they are doing. If they were loyal to the constitution, they would have impeached Trump yesterday! They would not be causing riots at universities. The republicans have zero interest in protecting the constitution of the United States. They are only interested in their party, wealth, and loyalty. That is it.
