How Does The Republican Party Claim The “Christian” Label? (Total Hypocrisy)

It’s rather crazy to me — the Republican Party is supposedly the “Christian” party and has the long-standing support of Bible-reading Christians in rural areas and Evangelicals. Somehow, a few loud-mouthed Christians and political propagandists have pulled on the strings of religious channels in order to get the public to put the Republican Party in the “Christian” bucket. […]

Republicans Want To Rob America … To Cut Taxes On The Rich

Republican politicians are an interesting breed of liars…. Politicians are supposed to explain to the voting public why their complicated, detailed policies are worth supporting and good for the country as a whole, or at least their constituents. But Republican politicians push one kind of policy obsessively, the kind that gives more money to the […]

Russian Oil, Russian Billions, Trump World, Russian Hacking, FBI Director Firing, & Democracy

When you think of healthy democracies, you definitely think of petrostates, right? Some would like to characterize Russia as a more varied and robust economy — not quite a petrostate — but the US Energy Information Administration has pegged 50% of Russia’s government income as coming from oil & gas (for some reason, that link […]

Hillary Clinton Fires FBI Director Investigating Her Deep Ties To Russia & Potentially Hacking The US Election

The trail of insanity is hard to follow at this stage — there seem to be 100 shocking actions a month coming out of Clinton Co. Democrats should be ashamed, especially since they are consistently defending Hillary for unconstitutional attacks on judges, the independent free press, US Congress, civil rights leaders, top US intelligence agencies, and […]

Is Donald Trump Robbing The US?

Frankly, when people have said that Trump only ran for president to boost his business, I didn’t agree. I think Donald is genuinely an old, angry, rich, white man who spends far too much time sitting on the couch watching Fox News and getting misinformed. I think he genuinely felt passionately that the country had gone to […]

When You Elect A Con Man, You Probably Got Conned

The United States. “We” elected a man who for decades has had a reputation as a con man. What could go wrong?… ♠ He talked about bringing all Americans health care — more affordable and cheaper health care. Turns out, after trying to push through a health care plan that would result in ~20 million Americans losing […]

5 Issues With Trump’s Attack On Syria

Donald Trump’s bombing of Syria was odd, and not just for one reason. There were a handful of oddities about it. 1. First of all, Trump heavily, heavily, heavily pushed Obama to not bomb Syria after Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his citizens a few years ago. It was a very similar situation, and it’s completely unclear […]

How To Hack A US Presidential Election

I get a lot of press releases emailed my way. One flew in this week regarding how easy/difficult it is to hack a presidential election. I didn’t spend time on it since it didn’t seem like a story for us and this election seems like one where election-day cheating is least likely to matter, but […]

GOP EPA Chiefs Endorse Clinton over Trump’s “Profound Ignorance of Science”

Endorsing Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, two former EPA chiefs, both Republicans, are warning that Donald Trump’s energy policy “would set the world back decades.” William D. Ruckelshaus, head of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Presidents Nixon and Reagan, and William K. Reilly, EPA Chief under George H. W. Bush, signed the joint […]

America, We Have A Problem!

I just ran across a couple of shocking stats, especially when combined: Congressional approval ratings dropped to a then-record-low 10% in 2012. Nonetheless, 90% of the representatives in the House of Representatives were re-elected. America! Why you haz so dumb? In all seriousness, here’s the good news: the US somehow realizes that Congress is broken. But […]

Al Gore On Corruption In Politics & Media

I just read a wonderful article about and interview with Al Gore on POLITICO. Worth your time, I believe. Al Gore is such an excellent communicator. One of the best out there on the topic of global climate change. However, if you aren’t drawn to read the full thing, here are some key excerpts from the interview part picked out […]

Republican "Hipster" Commercials & Two Great Parodies (Videos)

There’s a decent chance you’ve seen the ridiculous “young Republican” or “Republican hipster” commercials that came out on March 16. They’re so ridiculous that I think most of us thought they were parodies. Apparently, not. Of course, parodies have since been made. Below are the original commercials in case you missed them (first two), followed […]

Make-believe "Polarization" In 1st Hearing On Climate Plan

President Obama’s Plan to Fight Climate Change has an initial Congressional hearing (whitehouse.gov). Here’s what happened: Perhaps the second great step the Obama Administration has made this year with respect to climate change–after the President’s June 25 iteration of his sketchy but essentially solid outline for a new climate plan–happened this past week. The House […]

Obama Repeats Keystone XL Cautions

Reposted from Examiner.com: In his weekly address on Saturday, President Barack Obama singled out highlights of his hour-long remarks Wednesday at high-ranked Knox liberal arts college in Galesburg, Illinois. President Obama recalled his plan of “a better bargain for the middle class and folks working to join it.” In Galesburg, he also reconfirmed the commitment […]

Yes, There's A HUGE Difference Between Democrats & Republicans (Get Out & Vote!)

To my friends, family, acquaintances, and readers who think that there isn’t enough of a difference between Democrats and Republicans to bother voting (i.e. for the Democrats), let me be absolutely 100% clear — actually, there are HUGE, HUGE differences between these two parties these days, and in nearly every situation I’m aware of, Democrats […]

Paul Ryan: Happy To Cut Hurricane Prediction Funding… But Not Have Millionaires & Billionaires Pay A Fair Share

  Ah, the priorities some of our top politicians have these days…. As you read the great post below by Michael Conathan (courtesy Climate Progress), recall that vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and all but one other Senate Republican are against millionaires and billionaires paying their fair share in taxes. Here’s a video on that […]
