Trump Team Walking Back Muslim Ban Again

After making it one of the two major policies he advocated during the primary, Trump is clearly trying to back away from his ban on Muslim immigration and tourism. First Trump himself said it was just a suggestion, now his advisers are trying to woo Muslim voters (good luck with that!) by pretending it was no big deal. … [Read more...]

‘Coach’ Dave Daubenmire Starting to Snap

Poor "Coach" Dave Daubenmire. With society beginning to finally treat LGBT people like actual human beings with equal rights, he feels like a stranger in a strange land.

Trump Adviser: Food Aid Should Only Go to Christians

One of the lesser known Trump advisers is his "liaison for Christian policy," Frank Amedia. He's the head of Touch Heaven Ministries in Miami and Right Wing Watch did a little research on him.

Rios Thinks the Army Secretary Leads People Into Battle

The Senate, after a ridiculously long wait, confirmed the nomination of Eric Fanning as Secretary of the Army and the Christian right is clutching their pearls over it.

The NRA’s Incoherent Positions on Ex-Felons

ThinkProgress points out a rather obvious inconsistency from the NRA. On the one hand, they rail against the idea that ex-felons should get their voting rights restored after paying their debt to society. On the other, they think it's an absolute outrage that those same people can't own guns in some states. … [Read more...]

Trump: I’m Not Advocating Exactly What I’m Advocating

We are all used to politicians speaking out of both sides of their mouth, but Donald Trump is turning it into an art form.

Indiana’s New Anti-Abortion Law Threatens Medical Research

Anti-Islam Protesters Go Full-On White Supremacist

A group of bigots in Houston held a protest against an Islamic center that was started by NBA hall of famer Hakeem Olajuwon several years ago, but they were dwarfed by about five times as many counter-protesters. The bigots left no question where they stood, carrying signs that said "white lives matter" and yelling "white power." … [Read more...]

Megyn Kelly Attacks Critics of Her Trump Interview

It seems to be nearly universally believed that Megyn Kelly went soft as cotton in her interview with Donald Trump and she is responding to that criticism by not bothering to address the criticism at all but to attack a few critics and claiming that they're biased. … [Read more...]

Is Trump a Liar or a Fantasist?

The New York Times has a very long profile of Donald Trump after their reporter embedded with him and got a great deal of access over the course of a few weeks. It contains some stories and claims that make me wonder whether Trump is a liar or whether he just lives in a fantasy world. I think the answer is both, depending on the specific claim being made. … [Read more...]
