Pro-Reform Iranians Strongly Support Nuclear Deal

NuclearSymbol

Friend and colleague Kaveh Mousavi, an atheist blogger who lives in Iran, has been posting a lot of important things about the nuclear deal between our two countries and how it is affecting reality in that country already. One of the arguments he has been making is that the agreement strengthens the hands of reformers who want to push Iran to be more democratic, free and equal. And a whole bunch of them are enthusiastically supporting the agreement. … [Read more...]

Jindal to Obama: Don’t Talk About Climate Change

BobbyJindal

Hurricane Katrina was 10 years ago, believe it or not, and President Obama was in New Orleans this week to commemorate that event. But Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, afraid that the president might offend the oil and gas industry that controls his state and has funded his campaigns, had the chutzpah to write a letter to him telling him that he shouldn't talk about climate change during his visit. … [Read more...]

Savage: Throw Homeless People in Jail

https://goo.gl/RY7VJn

Michael Savage, always an exemplar of human compassion, is tired of seeing homeless people all over the place and he has a solution: Throw them all in jail or in mental hospitals so he doesn't have to look at them all the time. He's actually on to something here, but not what he thinks. A huge number of homeless people are, in fact, mentally ill and need help. But you can't imprison people if they haven't broken the law, except in the totalitarian reality he wishes we all lived in. … [Read more...]

Alveda King’s Bizarre Planned Parenthood Conspiracy Theory

Tin_foil_hat_2

Alveda King, Martin Luther King's utterly deranged niece who has been trading on his name to give her credibility as she opposes everything he stood for, has a truly bizarre conspiracy theory about Planned Parenthood. She claims that the only reason they give women birth control is not to help them decide when to have children, it's because that gives them breast cancer and then they have to come back for cancer screenings so they make more money. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump, the Greatest Thing to Ever Happen to Women

DonaldTrump

After weeks of attention paid to his blatantly sexist attitudes toward women, Donald Trump wants you ladies to know that if he's elected president, he'll be the greatest thing to ever happen to you. Because he cherishes you, whatever the hell that means. He especially cherishes beautiful models half his age. In fact, he collects new ones every 10-15 years. And the money he pays them to go away is the greatest thing to ever happen to them. … [Read more...]

WTF is Ben Carson Talking About?

WordSalad

Ben Carson gave a stump speech in Little Rock, Arkansas that was simply baffling. It's one of the weirdest diatribes you'll ever see, just rambling and bouncing from one topic to another, contradicting himself. He claims that other people are trying to divide America while doing the same thing himself. He praises those hard-working immigrants while saying that allowing immigrants to come here is deliberately trying to destroy America. Seriously. … [Read more...]

Christie Favors Non-Discrimination Laws for LGBT

In a surprising break with most of his fellow Republican presidential candidates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has taken a public stand in favor of including sexual orientation as a forbidden basis for discrimination by businesses. He says that while religious organizations should be exempted from such laws, businesses that serve the public should not be allowed to deny service to LGBT customers: … [Read more...]

New Trump Co-Chair Bashed Him, Jumped For Pay

InaneClownPosse

Okay, I find this hilarious. A month ago, Sam Clovis was the chairman of Rick Perry's campaign in Iowa and blasting Donald Trump as an immoral draft dodger who hates veterans. But then Rick Perry ran out of money and stopped paying his campaign staff, so now Sam Clovis is Trump's national campaign co-chair and singing his praises. But the Perry campaign, God bless 'em, is releasing all those emails Clovis wrote about Trump before. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump’s Amway-Style Naturopathic Health Scam

DonaldTrump

In addition to his Trump University, which was determined to be an unaccredited scam by the state of New York, Donald Trump also had a short-lived multi-level marketing company that sold both get rich quick dreams (what MLM doesn't?) and a completely useless set of naturopathic "remedies," vitamins and work-free weight loss products. Britt Hermes, a former naturopath turned legitimate biomedical researcher, nails him for it: … [Read more...]

Donald Trump: Super Christian

DonaldTrump

With all that ridiculous talk about Donald Trump being a "straight shooter" it's rather hilarious to listen to him try to pretend that he's all about Jesus. Having never shown even the slightest interest in Christianity at any point in his life, the thrice-married billionaire who trades in wives on younger models (literally) every 10-15 years is now trying to present himself as a Bible-loving Jesus freak. … [Read more...]

Bryan Fischer Award: Tom Cotton

BryanFischerAward

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who display a breathtaking lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of their own worst sins and being completely oblivious to their own hypocrisy and contradictions. Today's winner is Sen. Tom Cotton, who announced his arrival in Washington, DC a few months ago by authoring that letter sent by 47 Republicans to the government of Iran to undermine our negotiations over their nuclear programs. Here's why: … [Read more...]

Carson’s Latino-free Latino Outreach Event

Credit: Michael Vadon https://goo.gl/cS3vxP

With Latino voters approaching 10% of the electorate, politicians are increasingly trying to appeal to them in their election campaigns. Given their xenophobic campaign against immigration, the Republicans have a particularly difficult time doing so, getting only 27% of the Latino vote in 2012. Ben Carton aims to improve that showing, throwing a Latino outreach event in South Carolina the other day. There was just one problem: No Latinos showed up. … [Read more...]
