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. Trump's defense of eminent domain was absolutely ridiculous and his defense of his particular use of it was a whopper of a lie. Ilya Somin, a legal scholar who specializes in eminent domain, nails him for it. Trump said: … [Read more...]

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. He'd tell her how sad he is for her tragic situation, but she's just an incubator now and must be forced to give birth to her rapist's child and then maybe even split custody with the rapist. … [Read more...]

Trump is Booed, Lies About the Audience


For the first time in the campaign, Jeb Bush actually got the better of Donald Trump during the New Hampshire Republican presidential debate on the subject of eminent domain. Trump tried to bully him and use ad hominems, of course, and the audience booed him. And then Trump flat out lied about the audience. … [Read more...]

Cruz: Waterboarding Isn’t Torture


During the last Republican presidential debate, Ted Cruz was asked directly whether waterboarding was torture or not. He answered that it clearly was not "under the definition of torture" and "under the law."

Roosh V is Not ‘Pro-Rape’; Roosh V is a Rapist


Human excrement Roosh V has gotten a lot of attention lately in the press, not just here but all over the world. And most media accounts have said he was pro-rape, or at least hinted at that fact. But the truth is that he is not pro-rape, he is an actual rapist. He says so in his own books. Some excerpts from them that prove my point: … [Read more...]

Racist Explains Trump’s Appeal to Racists

OMG! ‘Nazi Occupation Storm Troopers’ Take Oregon!


Bradlee Dean's Sons of Liberty website is a home for all manner of cranks, crackpots and conspiracy nuts, including, of course, Dean himself. So naturally he publishes an article by another one named Dave Hodges about the federal government being "Nazi occupation storm troopers" who have "taken over Eastern Oregon." … [Read more...]

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...]

And More Fake Quotes


Duck Dynasty douchebag Phil Robertson has endorsed Ted Cruz for president and has been traveling with him to promote his candidacy. Given that David Barton is the head of the Cruz Super PAC, it shouldn't be at all surprising that Robertson is using a famously fake quote from James Madison to do so. … [Read more...]

It’s a Fake Quote Festival

State Rep. Matt Shea of Washington has submitted a gun rights bill in the legislature there and offers a half dozen quotes from the founding fathers to support it.

Arian Foster on Thanking God After a Game

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is one of the very few NFL players, or professional athletes at all, who have ever come out as openly atheist. In a video for Funny or Die he pokes fun at the nearly ubiquitous practice of thanking God after winning a game (but never after losing, strangely). … [Read more...]
