Coulter Wants ‘Death Squads’ if DACA is Made Law

Professional outrage performance artist Ann Coulter is terribly disappointed that her hero, Donald Trump, may be wavering on booting out all the DREAMers by signing DACA into law.

Hegseth Makes His Move on Doocy and Kilmeade

I’ve long said that Fox and Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade are the two dumbest men on television (in that order), with Eric Bolling in third. Bolling is now off the air at Fox so Pete Hegseth, a host of the weekend version of that show, is staking his claim. (more…) Read more

Trump Attacks Basketball, Football Players

Donald Trump may take his sweet time half-condemning neo-Nazis and white supremacists, but he’s quick on the draw to go after professional athletes who dare to speak out against injustice and inequality — or who just don’t like him. He started during his appearance on behalf of Luther Strange in Alabama. (more…) Read more

Appeals Court: Stingray Search Requires Warrant

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week that the police do need to secure a warrant before using a Stingray device to spoof cell phone towers in order to surveil a suspect. This is a very important ruling that I hope the Supreme Court doesn’t overturn on appeal. (more…) Read more
