Proud card-carrying NRA board member and habitual racist, anti-Semite Ted Nugent had another ragespasm Wednesday on his Facebook page. The aging rocker posted a fake video of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) taking out a gun and shooting Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, according to Media Matters.
“I got your guncontrol right here bitch!” Nugent posted.
The video shows footage from a CNN debate where the two candidates are talking about gun violence in America. Clinton begins to address the issue saying that the 90 gun deaths a day are no laughing matter and Sanders is depicted as pulling a gun from his pocket and shooting Clinton. The animation shows blood squirting from Clinton’s chest and she collapses to the ground:
Nugent is scheduled to speak at the NRA’s annual meeting where he will deliver a speech titled “2016 Election: Do or Die for America and Freedom.” The excerpt on the NRA’s site quotes, “The Obama/Clinton liberal Democrat gang is maniacal in their attack on all things individual rights, truth, logic, common sense and The American Way. Are there enough of us willing to do battle with these evil forces?”
Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
Chief Justice John Roberts issues New Year’s Eve warning to stand up for democracy
"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."
Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why
According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.
As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
