The leader of a relatively new group of white supremacists in Texas, the Patriot Front, is a former Marine who is giving lessons in combat techniques and strategy to its members to prepare for “future missions” — and to attract more women to those oh-so-manly men. (more…) Read more

It has become clear since the start of the 2016 campaign that Donald Trump, while claiming to be some kind of business genius, has not the slightest clue how trade deficits and budget deficits work, or even that there is a difference between the two. This his claim that it would be “easy” to pay off the entire federal debt by renegotiating our trade deals. (more…) Read more

Those on both sides of the culture wars have been wildly exaggerating the effect and distorting the meaning of last week’s Supreme Court ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado.

One of the things I love about self-declared “prophets” is that they continually make testable predictions. Not that it affects his followers, who ignore all the misses, but it becomes very easy to document that they are con artists peddling lies. Here’s Lance Wallnau’s latest example: (more…) Read more

As I reported earlier, the Trump administration is now taking the position that the ban on considering preexisting conditions in health insurance decisions is unconstitutional.
