Jones: Sanders Supporters Like Followers of Hitler

Trump’s Terrible Answer on Eminent Domain


Jeb Bush and Donald Trump got into it over eminent domain, which Trump has used to steal property for his hotels and other developments over the years.

Rubio Defends No Rape Exception for Abortion Ban


Marco Rubio went on a Sunday morning talk show and defended his position that a woman should not be allowed to get an abortion even if she's raped.

The Clinton Campaign is Push Polling


In an odd coincidence, Nolan Dalla, a guy I know from the world of poker (not know personally, but know his decades of writing about poker), was push-polled by the Clinton campaign. A push poll, for those who may not know, is a fake "poll" that is really intended to spread negative information about one's opponent. Part of the transcript: … [Read more...]
