The New York Times published an investigative piece after getting their hands on Trump’s tax returns from 1985 to 1994, finding he lost money in business every year, sometimes more than any other American taxpayer, and it added up to almost $1.2 billion over that ten year period.

In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has officially denied a request from the House to view Trump’s tax returns.

So shocking. (more…) Read more

God told Coach Dave Daubenmire to stake out the Clinton’s house in New York so she would be arrested and absolutely nothing happened, so he’s taking a second shot at it, inviting “Christians, patriots, veterans, anyone who loves America” to join him for another round of…what, exactly?

David Jolly, a Christian dominionist not to be confused with the former Congressman from Florida, has a column at BarbWire arguing that if America does not undergo a “Biblical revolution,” it’s time for an armed revolt against the “tyrannical left.” And he gets the history of the American revolution hilariously wrong in the process.
