White Supremacists Thrilled Trump is Defunding Domestic Terror Investigations

Trump is Trying to Make Sessions Quit

Chaffetz Does His Loyal Duty

Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz swapped a spot in Congress for a paid gig on Fox News, but his ability to think logically hasn't improved any. With nothing substantive to say in defense of Trump on the Russia story, he resorts to this surreal "a pox on both houses" claim. … [Read more...]

Sanders Promises to Tell the Truth

Sarah Huckabee Sanders now has Sean Spicer's job as White House Press Secretary (she was his assistant before) and, like him, she's pledging to tell the truth at all times while doing her job.

Bigot Files Incredibly Dumb Lawsuit

Chris Sevier, an anti-gay bigot and attorney with a history of filing ludicrous lawsuits against same-sex marriage, is now suing a group of legislators on the grounds that they display rainbow flags in their offices.
