The New York Times has an article about Trump’s legal team that is dealing with investigations both by Robert Mueller and the Southern District of New York. And one of the problems they’re facing is that they don’t know if Trump has told them the whole story and given them accurate information about a host of potential charges he may face.

My friend Radley Balko’s work on our criminal (in)justice system is absolutely invaluable. I consider him to be an indispensable journalist on the topic. In his column at the Washington Post, he puts up a very long and detailed post that links to dozens of studies that prove beyond all reasonable doubt that there is systemic racism at every level of law enforcement and the courts. And he describes what this means: (more…) Read more

Firefighter turned Christian con man Mark Taylor just slides into the abyss of wingnuttia with every day that passes. Now he’s claiming that John McCain didn’t die of cancer but was executed by a secret military tribunal that Trump will also use on Clinton, Obama and everyone involved in that mythical global pedophile ring that the conspiracy crackpots have invented in their heads (why not, there’s plenty of room in there).

Ted Cruz is obviously getting really desperate as polls show a close race with Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke and his lies are becoming more ridiculous. When PETA protested one of his rallies, he told the crowd that O’Rourke would ban BBQ in the state of Texas if he wins the Senate seat. Then he repeated it on Twitter: (more…) Read more

Betsy DeVos is a horrible human being and manifestly unqualified to be the Secretary of Education, an agency she is actively trying to undermine as part of her anti-public school agenda that she has advocated for decades here in Michigan. And boy did she duck right into the punch with this claim: (more…) Read more

George Conway, husband of Baghdad Kellyanne Conway and someone initially considered for the job of Solicitor General under Trump, is once again publicly slamming Trump. After Trump brought up the ancient blooper of Obama mistakenly saying he had campaigned in 57 states, Conway pointed out the obvious difference between that and Trump’s constant lies.

The New Yorker has a long profile of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. It notes, accurately, her predilection for lying through her teeth for her boss, over and over and over again. A former Baptist preacher explained why a supposed Christian is willing to do that: (more…) Read more
