Here’s One of the Dumbest Fox News Segments They’ve Aired Since Trump Took Office (Video)

Over the years, I’ve seen and heard many… many completely ridiculous things that have been said, posted, or covered on Fox News. When you’re really nothing more than a conservative entertainment network masquerading as a “news” network, that’s bound to happen. That being said, I just saw what is, easily, one of the dumbest segments/articles I’ve ever […]

Fox News Host Hilariously Whines About Trump Supporters Not Liking Facts (Video)

For over 20 years now, Fox News has spent much of its time serving as nothing more than a conservative propaganda machine pretending to be a cable news channel. From their overly patriotic graphics, to their laughable catchphrase “Fair and Balanced,” it’s been a very effective tool at turning the Republican Party into a modern […]

Disgusting Republicans Gut Animal Cruelty Bill to Grandstand About Abortion

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that there are many atrocities in the world, but I’ve always viewed people who are mean to and/or abuse animals to be some of the most vile and disgusting people on the planet. How anyone can purposely mistreat, abuse, or torture animals is nauseating. So it goes without saying that […]

My Message for Sean Hannity: You’re a Hypocrite, a Vile Human Being, and an Asshole

I think it goes without saying that I’m not, by any means, a fan of Fox News’ Sean Hannity. In my opinion, he’s nothing more than conspiracy-pushing hack who spends most of his time pandering to the worst parts of our society. It’s an absolute joke anyone takes this clown seriously and it’s an even […]

10 Ridiculous Myths Republicans Have Conned Their Voters Into Believing

Once upon a time the Republican Party was actually a great American political institution. Despite the pathetic joke it’s become, the GOP is the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. It wasn’t until the 50’s and the 60’s, when Republicans embraced what’s known as the “southern strategy” that the party began […]

Trump’s Budget is a $1 Trillion Example of How Much Republicans Hate the Poor

How any poor or middle class American can vote Republican is mind-boggling. It’s a testament to the power of brainwashing, religious manipulation, and preying on fear that the GOP has managed to unabashedly con tens of millions of Americans into supporting policies that go against their own best interests. Look no further than the 2016 election […]

Intelligence Director’s Tuesday Testimony Made Trump Look Even More Guilty (Video)

There are many ways to say something without actually saying it directly. In fact, sometimes what a person doesn’t say is often just as important as what they do. Case in point, what Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said and didn’t say during a Senate Armed Services hearing on Tuesday. One of the biggest […]

Trey Gowdy Tries Outsmarting Former CIA Head Into Helping Trump, Fails Miserably (Video)

While Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) might not be as big of a household name as Donald Trump or Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, that doesn’t make him any less of a scumbag. As one of the main figures behind the GOP’s Benghazi propaganda, Gowdy has a rather extensive record of proving he’s nothing more […]

10 Things Robert Reich Learned When He Asked European Leaders About Trump

Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich is one of the more well-respected members of the progressive community. While I don’t always agree with him, I know he’s an intelligent individual who puts a lot of thought behind everything he says. He’s not someone who lashes out on irrational, emotionally-driven outbursts — like some people. So […]

Trump Official’s Jaw-Dropping Ignorance on Saudi Arabia is Inexcusable (Video)

Without a doubt, the United States’ relationship with Saudi Arabia is fairly controversial. Considered a key Middle Eastern ally, many Americans take issue with what they feel is too cozy of a relationship with a country ruled by a strict theocratic monarch with an abysmal record when it comes to freedom and human rights. This […]
