I’m not usually one to share articles or memes about people being “destroyed” or “owned” (or better yet “pwned”), but this response from historian Kevin Kruse on Twitter to a bunch of questions from Jeanine Pirro on Fox News merits an exception. This takedown is so brutal you’d think it was from the ECW. (more…) Read more

James Freeman, the editor of the editorial page at the Wall Street Journal, went on Fox Business and made two arguments about the coverage of preexisting conditions that are so inane he should be ashamed of himself for making them. He isn’t, of course, but he should be. These people are incapable of feeling shame. The first is he calls it a “phony issue” because the bill that would have ended coverage for preexisting conditions didn’t pass. (more…) Read more

A U.S. Army assessment of the refugee caravan coming through Mexico to our southern border flatly contradicts Trump’s demagoguery about it. In preparing to assist Homeland Security, their planning documents make clear that they’re dealing with just regular people seeking a better life, not the imagined threat to national security Trump pretends that they pose. First, only a small percentage of them will make it to our border. (more…) Read more

The Washington Post has a reporter following the caravan of refugees up through Mexico and their reporting is providing a powerful counterpoint to the dishonest fearmongering Trump is engaged in. This “invading army” is just a ragtag bunch of people who are desperate, poor, sick and often injured from the arduous journey northward. (more…) Read more

Bloomberg News reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is almost finished with his first report on two key questions in the Russia investigation and plans to deliver it to Congress shortly after the midterm election on Tuesday. I’d rather he waited until the new Congress is seated in January. (more…) Read more

In this week’s installment of Least Surprising News Ever, the man who went into a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida and killed two women on Friday was a racist, misogynist incel who despised women and believed they all existed just to trick men with their devious schemes. Elliott Rodgers could not be reached for comment. (more…) Read more

A federal judge has issued an injunction against the state of Georgia, and specifically against Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is now running for governor, over absurd restrictions he put in place to benefit his own campaign by suppressing thousands of votes. The policy is called “exact match” and it requires any voter who has any discrepancy whatsoever between different databases — a missing middle initial or apartment number, or a slight misspelling, for instance — to get cleared… Read more

Trump tweeted out a video the other day of a vile campaign ad accusing Democrats of allowing an undocumented immigrant into the country who killed two police officers in California. Turns out that the Clinton administration deported him, he snuck back in and was released again — by Trump ally and pardon recipient Sheriff Joe Arpaio. (more…) Read more

Larry Klayman has never seen a ridiculous conspiracy theory about his political enemies that he didn’t swallow whole and spit back out at his supporters, so it’s hardly surprising that he’s pushing the claim that Cesar Sayoc was paid off by Democrats to send bombs to 14 Trump critics and Democratic leaders.

With a few Republicans finally offering some tepid criticism of Rep. Steve King for his clearly white supremacist views, his fellow fascist racists are stepping up to defend him and making clear that they know he’s one of them, whether he denies it publicly or not. Such a surprise, don’t you think? (more…) Read more
