Wiles: Trump Under ‘House Arrest’ by ‘Deep State’

Raving paranoiac Rick Wiles is tying it all together and blaming it on a conveniently vague boogeyman. He says the firing of Bill O'Reilly was engineered by the "deep state" (whatever that is), which has also put Trump under "house arrest" and is trying to destroy Alex Jones. … [Read more...]

Larry Klayman to Start a Radio Show

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, is launching his own radio show. This is, of course, proof that God loves me and wants me to be perpetually amused.

If you pay attention to the right-wing "news" sites and blogosphere, you'd think that Ben Carson became HUD Secretary and almost immediately found half a trillion dollars in lost money at the agency. Not a word of that is even in the ballpark of being true, however. Media Matters offers a few examples: … [Read more...]

Trump Claims Iran Violating ‘Spirit’ of Nuclear Deal

During a press conference on Thursday, Trump claimed that while the State Department has certified that Iran is in full compliance with the nuclear deal we signed, technically called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), they're violating the "spirit" by continuing to sponsor terrorism. … [Read more...]

Meeting of the Mind at the White House

Art Schlesinger famously said that JFK's cabinet was the single greatest collection of brainpower in the White House since Jefferson dined alone.
