Since Trump took office, there’s been a mass exodus of the State Departments career officials. Part of this is clearly a lack of support for the man who has systematically torn down our diplomatic corps and longtime strategic alliances. But a new report by the agency’s Inspector General concludes that a part of Trump appointees chased away many of those people with abusive behavior. (more…) Read more

In his best impression of the Million Dollar Man from the old WWE, Trump has repeatedly raised the question of why we can’t just buy the nation of Greenland to use the natural resources (coal, uranium and other minerals) it contains. He told the White House Counsel to look into the legality and what it would take to do it. (more…) Read more

Leave it to one of Fox News’ most extreme and vile hosts to excuse away the ICE prison guard in Rhode Island who intentionally drove his truck into a group of peaceful protesters sitting on the ground. Thankfully no one was seriously injured, but Lou Dobbs would clearly have been just fine with it if he’d killed someone. (more…) Read more

The Christian right seems downright obsessed with the “Jezebel spirit” that they claim now ruled over America (though Trump is supposedly going to break those chains of possession). Anti-gay bigot Michael Brown is the latest to invoke this inane idea, claiming that Jezebel is emasculating men and causing “radical feminism” as a Satanic plot to destroy the country.

A right-wing Christian minister running for state House seat in Colorado may actually eclipse former state Sen. Gordon Klingenschmitt for his bronze age views of women’s rights. He preaches that women wearing pants is evil because it’s not dressing “modestly.” Instead, they should wear skirts or culottes. Those seem a bit more immodest than wearing pants to me.

The man who blew the whistle on Bernie Madoff has published a 170 page report alleging that General Electric, one of the stalwart blue chip stocks for decades, has used accounting tricks to cover up $38 billion in debt. He said this is a fraud bigger than Enron and the markets responded with a huge drop in the value of GE stock on Thursday. (more…) Read more

Bonnie Weinstein, wife of Military Religious Freedom Foundation Mikey Weinstein, has just published a book full of the hate mail that group receives on a daily basis, much of it viciously anti-Semitic. And right on cue, in response to that very book, comes yet another email that go into the third edition of the series later. (more…) Read more

We very nearly had another Heather Heyer situation in Rhode Island, where a group from Never Again Action, a Jewish group that protests the Trump immigration policies and ICE in particular, were rammed by a truck driven by a guard from that facility, which houses ICE detainees. And the police then pepper sprayed the protesters rather than arresting the driver. (more…) Read more

Todd Starnes, who hosts a radio show for Fox News and is a frequent guest on their various TV shows as well, is nothing if not a professional hysteric. His job is to exaggerate every imagined threat into impending doom. So it is with immigration, which he actually compares to a Nazi invasion while ignoring the reasons why they try to come here and the actual evidence on things like crime. (more…) Read more

Right wing provocateur and “investigative journalist” James O’Keefe can’t stop embarrassing himself. Yesterday he released a video from his Project Veritas that features a former software engineer from Google who says their algorithm is biased against conservative websites. The problem is the guy is a major crackpot who believes in every conspiracy in the book. (more…) Read more
