Trump Rejects Study Proving Positive Refugee Impact On US Economy (Video)

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” One of the promises President Donald Trump made on the campaign trail was to deny millions of refugees admission to the United States, claiming they were hurting Americans’ job prospects and were potential terrorists. It isn’t unusual, though, […]

House Dems Show Trump How To Deal With Pervs In Their Ranks (TWEETS)

In a sane world, Donald Trump’s presidency should have ended on Wednesday afternoon, when he declared that he would rather have a suspected sexual harasser and child molester in the Senate than a Democrat. He made that loud and clear when he all but endorsed former Alabama chief justice Roy Moore for the former seat of […]

Uranium One ‘Witness’ Might Have Some Credibility Issues (VIDEO)

Ever since Robert Mueller rolled out his first indictments, the main response from Donald Trump and his most diehard supporters has been typical–deflect, deflect, deflect. Their main deflection of choice has been Uranium One’s 2010 sale to Russia’s state-owned uranium monopoly, Rosatom. For those who don’t remember, Hillary Clinton had to sign off on the […]

A Fox News Anchor Gets Ripped To Shreds For Defending Hillary Clinton (Video)

Fox News told the truth this week. And its viewers were not happy. It isn’t usual for the conspiracy theory-laden network to debunk its own spin. But that was exactly what Fox News anchor Shepard Smith did Tuesday when he dedicated six minutes of airtime to fact-check Republican talking points about “Uranium One,” the erroneous charge against former Secretary of State […]

Trumpkin Calls Bill de Blasio An ‘Accessory To Murder’ For Opposing Trump (TWEETS)

As most of us know by now, a certain element of Donald Trump’s base thinks that daring to speak out against the Donald is nothing short of treasonous.

NRA’s Dana Loesch Warns Trump Foes They’ll Go Down ‘In Their Own Fires’ (VIDEO)

It initially appeared that the National Rifle Association had come down from the ceiling at last in the wake of the massacre in Las Vegas.

Trump Promised Fallen Army Sergeant’s Father $25K–Surprise! He Never Sent It (Video)

Almost exactly one year to the day, then-candidate Donald Trump boasted he would run the country like he runs his business. That was music to people’s ears if they were hoping a businessman would be able to reform Washington dysfunction. It was not music to people’s ears if they had once dealt with Trump in […]

One Simple Question Ties Abortion Foes In Knots (TWEETS)

One Simple Question Ties Abortion Foes In Knots (TWEETS)

As anti-abortion activists seem to get more and more extreme in their tactics, reasoning with them has seemingly become an exercise in frustration.

Schumer To Trump: Repeal And Replace Is ‘Off The Table’ (Video)

It has been almost one year since Donald Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States, and nine months since he took office.

NRA Lobbyist Tries To Peddle Alternative Facts On Fox–And Fails (VIDEO/TWEET)

Whenever a mass shooting happens, there are a lot of things that are as certain as death and taxes are in normal times.

These Guys Have Some ‘Splainin’ To Do About Their Ties To Breitbart, Bannon, And Milo (TWEET)

In a sane world, a lot of careers should have ended when Buzzfeed revealed the strongest evidence to date that Breitbart doesn’t merely give succor to racists, Nazis, and white supremacists. It is actively involved in a campaign to normalize and mainstream hate and bigotry. Notably, Breitbart’s once–and presumably future–star, Milo Yiannopoulos, actively collaborated with […]

Confirmed: Russia Used Facebook Ads To Help Trump Win Michigan And Wisconsin (Video)

Last week, we learned Facebook was preparing to give Congress 3,000 Russian-purchased ads through 470 phony pages and accounts that suggest African American rights groups, like Black Lives Matter, posed a political threat, in an effort to exploit racial divisions during the 2016 presidential campaign season. Facebook said at least $100,000 was spent for this purpose, a […]
