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. My first time dealing with him was on a radio show, when I made him look quite foolish over the Terri Schiavo situation. His announcement: … [Read more...]

Root: Trump is Wildly Popular, Won a Landslide

Wayne Allyn Root, who seems to be attached to Donald Trump like a Tom Thumb condom, says that all the polls are wrong except one and that Trump is really wildly popular, at least with the only people who matter (businessmen, of course). … [Read more...]

Shoebat: Fox Fired O’Reilly to Make Room for Gay Nazis

Rabid, violent bigot Theodore Shoebat says he doesn't think Bill O'Reilly sexually harassed anyone at all. In fact, he says the only reason Fox News fired him is so they could make room to hire gay Nazis in his place. Wait, what? Yep, he said that. … [Read more...]

New Proposal to Kill Obamacare Even Worse

The House "Freedom" Caucus, Republican leadership and more moderate Republicans have reached a tentative agreement on a new bill to kill Obamacare and replace it with a terrible plan that would still eliminate coverage for tens of millions of people and dramatically raise costs for those with preexisting conditions. … [Read more...]

No, Ben Carson Did Not Find Half a Trillion in Lost HUD Money

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. I would submit that Wednesday night's meeting between Trump, Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock was an intellectual void that dwarfs the Grand Canyon. … [Read more...]

Texas Nailed Again for Racial Gerrymandering

A panel of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has, for the second time in just a few weeks, ruled that the Republican-dominated Texas legislature intentionally drew congressional districts to dilute the influence of minority voters, engaging in unconstitutional racial gerrymandering. … [Read more...]

Does Sessions Know Hawaii is a State?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a remarkably blinkered statement on the Mark Levin radio show about a Hawaiian judge who blocked enforcement of Trump's Muslim ban 2.0. He seems to think that the fact that Hawaii is an island in the Pacific has some bearing on the validity of the judge's ruling: … [Read more...]

Another Unnecessary Fear-Mongering Bill

A Michigan Republican legislator is proposing yet another pointless bill that will be useful to use for demagoguery during the next campaign, this time a bill that would forbid the use of foreign law by Michigan courts, something already not allowed except in contractual situations. … [Read more...]
