Fake Historian Misleads About Government Oaths

William Federer, a low-rent David Barton without the erudition, has a Worldnetdaily column entitled "Why Belief in God is Necessary for Taking Oaths." His answer is quite predictable -- because belief in God (allegedly) makes you more likely to follow the oath. But there's some obvious misinformation along the way: … [Read more...]

No, Trump Did Not Save ‘Merry Christmas’

With all the ridiculous claims from Donald Trump during the campaign that he would make everyone say Merry Christmas rather than happy holidays, and now Corey Lewandowski saying that he's already succeeded at that, it's important to point out that America never stopped saying Merry Christmas at all. … [Read more...]

Alex Jones Suggest Glenn Beck is Gay

The blood feud between Glenn Beck and Alex Jones continues to rage. It seems odd since they seem so much alike, but maybe that's exactly why they hate each other so much. Maybe it's a turf war. The latest is Alex Jones calling Beck gay while denying that he's calling him gay. … [Read more...]

Fischer Still Lying About Past Statements

Like David Barton and Donald Trump, Bryan Fischer has a habit of claiming that he never said things that he did say, presumably because they don't realize that everything they say on their shows or in columns is recorded forever.

Report: Trump Wants to Keep Stake in Businesses

Donald Trump said he would hold a press conference Dec. 15 to announce how he would deal with his global businesses to avoid conflicts of interest. I said immediately that it would be a meaningless veneer, not the total divestiture that is required. Looks like I was right: … [Read more...]

Another Pizza Place Linked to Non-Existent Child Trafficking Hoax

It seems that Comet Ping Pong is not the only pizza place implicated by either paranoid wingnuts or intentional liars over this ridiculous story about a non-existent child sex trafficking ring run by the Clintons and John Podesta.

Trump Names Another Arsonist to the Fire Department

We're seeing a trend here as Donald Trump continues to appoint cabinet secretaries whose views are fundamentally opposed to the goals of the departments they're nominated to head. This time it's Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, a global warming denier who has sued the EPA for actually protecting the environment, to head the EPA. … [Read more...]

So Much for Spencer’s Claim Not to be a White Supremacist

Richard Spencer invented the term "alt-right" as a euphemism to cover up the fact that he is a white supremacist. He claims to be a new kind of "racialist" (another euphemism), not a violent, KKK-type thug. But his recent speech at Texas A&M makes that claim a lot less convincing: … [Read more...]

Trump Using Kids as ‘Informal Ambassadors’

The involvement of Eric, Ivanka and Donald Jr. in the transition and in the actual efforts of the president-elect is a very disturbing thing, not that Trump himself could possibly care. This is especially true of using them as informal ambassadors meeting with foreign officials. … [Read more...]

Hair: Nominate Roy Moore as Secretary of State

Some wingnut douche named Paul Hair has a column at BarbWire, where you have to be a wingnut douche to be published, urging Donald Trump to nominate twice-disgraced and now former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore to be secretary of state. … [Read more...]
