Alec Baldwin recently made a statement about the importance of voting out Trump and his allies in Congress, saying that this would “overthrow” the government. Which it would, in at least one rather obvious sense. Naturally, the reactionary wingnuts are now demanding that he be tried for treason for advocating the overthrow of the government through the actual means the Constitution provides for.

The sheer chutzpah of Donald Trump is truly astonishing. In the wake of his own followers threatening to murder journalists and the killing of a Saudi journalist who lived in the U.S., he goes to a campaign rally in Montana and praises Rep. Greg Gianforte, who pleaded guilty to beating up a reporter who dared to ask him a question during the 2016 election. (more…) Read more

As expected for the last few days, the Saudi government has chosen its fall guys, the ones who will take the blame for Mohammed bin Salman, who will now claim that he had nothing to do with it and it was just a few rogue agents of his team that did it all without his knowledge. And if you believe that, I’ve got a solar power grid in Saudi Arabia to sell you. (more…) Read more

Deranged con artist Kat Kerr, self-declared “weather warrior” who has failed to prevent every natural disaster she “takes command of,” spoke recently at the Gateway on Mt. Zion Church in Golden, Colorado, where she made some of the most outrageous claims imaginable. Like how she controls an army of 33 billion angels who do whatever she tells them. (more…) Read more

My old pal Larry Klayman has filed yet another defamation suit, this one on behalf of fascist former Sheriff Joe Arpaio against the New York Times for an editorial they published a few weeks ago that detailed his long record of unconstitutional abuses and racist policing. They’re asking for a ludicrous $147 million in damages. (more…) Read more

Bloomberg News is reporting that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton got into a big shouting match that led to Kelly storming away muttering obscenities. The fight was apparently over immigration, the caravan from Honduras moving north through Mexico and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s handling of it. (more…) Read more

The Trump administration’s crusade against any regulation that actually helps people rather than businesses has been pursued with a legal recklessness that has seen them smacked down multiple times by federal judges. The latest is a judge who has reinstated Obama-era rules that provided relief to some who had fraudulent student loans, calling the process for eliminating it “arbitrary and capricious.” (more…) Read more

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, now running for governor, is asking a federal judge — the same one who hammered him and sanctioned him repeatedly in a case over the last year — to block the release of a videotaped sworn deposition in that case because, he says, it will hurt his campaign.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Trump was asked about the subject of climate change. He offered the common, and utterly stupid, “some scientists disagree” argument, then brought up his scientist uncle yet again and said that he has an “instinct for science” when it comes to climate change.

Rep. Steven King, who has revealed himself to be a white supremacist in recent years, has now endorsed Canadian white supremacist Faith Goldy, who is running to be the next mayor of Toronto. She has pretty much a zero chance of winning, but the endorsement is just another piece of evidence against King — and the Republicans who refuse to repudiate him. (more…) Read more
