This is a Major Reason Why Republicans Often Deny Truth, Facts, and Reality

As the few sane and rational Republicans left in this country are quickly realizing, the vast majority of the conservative media has become a massive problem for not only the Republican Party, but the entire country. Lifelong conservatives are being shunned and attacked as “RINOs” (Republican in name only), not necessarily because their views have […]

Kellyanne Conway Melts Down After Fox & Friends Asks Her About Roy Moore (Video)

I could probably write a book based on nothing more than absurd comments Kellyanne Conway has made while giving interviews. A woman who repeatedly proves that she has no shame, there really doesn’t seem to be a level to which she will not stoop to defend the never-ending circus known as the Trump administration. Such […]

It’s Important to Understand the Alt-Right’s Endgame

While most people on the left think of the Alt-Right as a white nationalist movement driven by bigotry and racism, I think many folks are missing the bigger picture concerning what the Alt-Right is really all about. Yes, they’re largely comprised of racists, Nazis, white nationalists, and bigots. But that’s a rather narrow way to […]

Embarrassing New Report Confirms Exactly How Cowardly and Weak Trump Is

I’m sure everyone reading this knows Donald Trump likes to portray himself as a “strong, confident leader,” even though that couldn’t be further from the truth. He’s a weak, fragile, egotistical narcissist whose life is consumed with trying to mask his insecurities and tear down others trying to make himself look more powerful. Sadly, millions […]

Jake Tapper Brilliantly Slams Cowardly Trump For Avoiding Questions About Roy Moore (Video)

Say what you will about CNN as a whole, but Jake Tapper is someone who I’ve always found to be fair, honest, witty, and unafraid to ask tough questions of both Democrats and Republicans. Like on Wednesday when he did a brilliant breakdown of how Donald Trump’s take on sexual harassment and/or assault seems to […]

The United States of Trump: A Nation Being Led by a Legitimate Moron

In day-to-day political rhetoric, it’s not uncommon for one side to accuse the politicians from the other of being “stupid,” “idiots,” or “morons.” Though in most instances, these insults have more to do with an opposition to political ideology rather than a factual assessment of a politician’s actual intelligence. The truth is, no matter what […]

Real Reason the GOP Wants Moore to Step Down Has Little to do with the Accusations Against Him

When the Republican Party decided to embrace Donald Trump, it lost any real ability to claim a “moral high ground” on much of anything. Remarkably, backing a self-admitted sexual predator on his third marriage who’s said some Nazis are “fine people” hasn’t stopped these Republican hypocrites from continuing to proclaim they’re the “party of Christian […]

Most Republicans Don’t Seem to Understand the Meanings of the Words and Phrases They Use

If there’s one thing I’ll give Republicans credit for, it’s that they are masters at pushing a message, talking point, or piece of propaganda once it’s been established. From the top of the party, through the conservative media, all the way out to their millions of supporters, like drones programmed to repeated what they’re told, […]

Hannity’s Latest Attempt to Defend Roy Moore is One of His Most Pathetic Yet

On Monday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity took his desperate attempts to defend an accused child sexual predator to another pathetic level when, instead of actually trying to defend Moore, he did what he usually does — he attacked the “other side.” This time he tried to slander liberal website Media Matters. The headline on his […]

Hannity Fans Embarrass Themselves, Destroy Expensive Appliances After Company Pulls Ads From Show

When it comes to politics, we’re in unprecedented territory. While I’ve never viewed most Republican voters as rational, logical, or even factually-driven people, I’ve never seen the type of hypocrisy or outright insanity like I have over the past few years. Especially the last two since Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP. As […]
