BarbWire: Liberals Will Create Fake Christian Terrorist Groups!


Right-wing "thinker" Paul Hair has come up with preemptive conspiracy theory just in case we have yet another domestic terrorist attack from Christian right extremists. Should that happen -- and it will, as it has regularly in this country for decades -- he wants you to know that it's all a false flag, that those Christian terrorists are really "leftists" trying to make Christian conservatives look bad. … [Read more...]

Klayman Goes to the Well One More Time


Larry Klayman is nothing if not consistent. Consistently stupid and ridiculous, of course, but nonetheless consistent. His latest Worldnetdaily column calls on American "patriots" to remove Obama from office because the Republicans clearly won't do it. This is, in fact, a repeat from every day since January, 2009. How's that working out for you so far, Larry? … [Read more...]

Wingnuts Make a List; Right Wing Watch Checks it Twice


Liberty Counsel and the American Family association are doing their annual "Naughty or Nice" lists of companies that are either trying to destroy the baby Jesus by not talking enough about Christmas or are upholding Christian virtues by saying it a lot. But as Right Wing Watch points out, they can't seem to agree on which companies are naughty and which ones are nice. … [Read more...]

Santorum: Obama Refuses to Bomb ISIS!


At the presidential forum put on by the Iowa Family Leader last weekend, Rick Santorum put on a clinic in how to divorce yourself completely from reality while running for president (assuming he's still running for president; does anyone know? Does anyone care?). He actually said that President Obama refuses to bomb ISIS because they're not a state and we can only bomb states. … [Read more...]

Ladies and Gentlemen, Ben McCarthy Carson

Credit: Michael Vadon

It seems that Ben Carson is trying to really establish his McCarthyite bonafides by one-upping some of his Republican presidential rivals. Not only does he think we should have a database for all "foreigners," but he thinks we should be surveilling anyone he deems to be "anti-American." He means Un-American, of course. Perhaps even a House committee to oversee their activities. … [Read more...]

Huckabee: I’ll Summarily Outlaw Abortion as President


Mike Huckabee, who remains absolutely convinced that the president can ignore any Supreme Court ruling he doesn't like (unless Obama did that, of course; then it would be an outrageous HitlerStalinMao action), told the Iowa Family Leader forum this weekend that if he is elected, he will not only ignore the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling, he would issue an executive order outlawing abortion completely. … [Read more...]

Fiorina: Faith Makes Better Leaders


Over the weekend there was a public forum put on by the Iowa Family Leader, the most powerful Christian right group in that state, featuring several of the Republican presidential candidates. Carly Fiorina was in full pander mode, making the ridiculous claim that faith makes people better leaders because it makes them humble and gives them empathy. Seriously, empathy. … [Read more...]

Dumbest Conversation Ever on Fox News?


Could we finally have found a conversation on a Fox News show that is dumber than what is heard daily on Fox and Friends? It doesn't even involve Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade or Elizabeth Hasselbeck, which is almost astonishing to believe. It involves Tony Sayegh and Dagen McDowell talking about the Girl Scouts and McDowell explaining why she hated being a part of it growing up. … [Read more...]

Trump Reiterates Demand for Database, Promises Waterboarding


Donald Trump made his typical appearance on a Sunday morning talk show, this time the one with George Stephanopoulos. And he made his typically uninformed, ridiculous and appalling statements. He started by declaring the Syrian refugees to be a "Trojan horse" because he saw a picture of the Syrian refugees in Europe and they looked like "strong powerful men." … [Read more...]

Nolte: Mockinjay ‘Tanked’ Because Jennifer Lawrence Insulted Trump


The terminally ridiculous John Nolte, who covers the entertainment industry for, has a rather bizarre definition of a movie tanking. The 4th Hunger Games movie, Mockinjay Part 2, was the #1 grossing movie in its opening weekend with over $100 million in ticket sales. But Nolte says it's "underperforming" because Jennifer Lawrence said mean things about Donald Trump. … [Read more...]

Trump Tries to Pass On an Urban Myth as Something He Witnessed


Another day, another ridiculous lie from Donald Trump. During a recent speech he claimed that on the morning of 9/11, he saw "thousands and thousands" of Muslims cheering in Jersey City, New Jersey as they watched the towers come down. When challenged on that by George Stephanopoulos, he not only didn't back down, he doubled down on it and said he watched it on television. Which now makes it an entirely testable claim, which PolitiFact documents as a pants on fire lie. … [Read more...]

PolitiFact Debunks the Lie About Syrian Refugees Being Mostly Men


It has become virtually a mantra on the xenophobic and Islamophobic right that most of the Syrian refugees are "young men of military age" or some such nonsense. Carly Fiorina goes even further and says that the "vast majority" of the refugees are "able-bodied young men." PolitiFact points to data from the United Nations, which tracks all of the refugees, that completely refutes this claim: … [Read more...]
