Alek Minassian, the Canadian man who killed ten people and injured 15 more by driving his van into a crowd of people, was reportedly another Elliot Rodger, the California man who killed a raft of people because, he claimed, women wouldn’t have sex with him. The CBC reports: (more…) Read more

Travis Reinking, the guy who killed four people at a Waffle House in Tennessee the other day, was like an all-you-can-eat buffet of inane right-wing beliefs. For instance, when he was arrested outside the White House last year, he told police he was a “sovereign citizen.” That probably tells you all you need to know, but there’s more than that.

Trump took office promising to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC of the corrupt influence of lobbyists and politicians on the make, but he’s done the exact opposite. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is practically the poster boy for such corruption at this point. A new report shows that the landlord who cut him a sweetheart deal on rent on a condo in DC was lobbying the EPA on behalf of a client at the same time. (more…) Read more

Everyone was surprised when Trump nominated Ronny Jackson, his personal presidential doctor, to run the Veterans Administration. He may be a fine doctor, but he has no experience running a large bureaucracy, much less one that spends almost $200 billion in tax money every year. Now he has bailed on his own nominee. Again.

Whenever I hear David Barton and his followers argue that America was founded as an officially Christian nation, I can’t help but laugh at just how bad their arguments are. In particular, the equation of the founding of the colonies with the founding of the country is so utterly illogical. They even cite the evidence themselves and are still oblivious to it. Here’s a great example. (more…) Read more

Disgraced former FBI agent John Guandolo — he was fired for having sex with a witness he was supposed to be protecting — has made a new career for himself as a far-right, anti-Muslim extremist (blessed with the ability to spot a Jihadist just by the fact that they have a beard). But as Ann Coulter found out long ago, maintaining such a career requires that you constantly one-up your own outrageous and bizarre claims. Like this one: (more…) Read more

NBC News has an article about the Gatestone Institute, headed until he took the job as National Security Adviser by John Bolton for the last four years. Gatestone is one of the lesser-known but best-funded of a web of Islamophobic groups that push white supremacist rhetoric about how Muslims are going to destroy white European hegemony through immigration.

If there’s one thing we have learned about Donald Trump, which any observant person should already have known, it’s that he hates any implication that he is not perfect. And he especially hates the idea that someone else might be placating him or condescending to him. Which is why this new article in the New Yorker probably puts Defense Secretary James Mattis’ head directly on the chopping block. (more…) Read more

Crackpot Liz Crokin, to borrow a favorite tactic of Cheetohead Trump’s, has found yet another reason to tell her clueless followers that now, finally, at last, that video she claims exists of Hillary Clinton raping a child and cutting their face off will be revealed. Rudy Giuliani’s gonna do it. (more…) Read more

Sen. Cory Booker has been questioning Secretary of State nominee Mike Pompeo about how his anti-gay religious views would affect American policy on the mistreatment of LGBT people in other countries. Predictly, the Christian right is throwing a tantrum over it, dishonestly and hypocritically accusing him of establishing a religious test for office, which would be forbidden by the Constitution.
