Once upon a time, I worked for Sam’s Club, which is owned by Walmart. When Forward Progressives first launched, I still had a lot of ties to my days working there, which meant I got quite a few “inside stories” as to how the company was operating internally. Such as an article I wrote exposing […]

There’s a Huge Aspect to the Russia Facebook Ads Story that Needs to Be Discussed

It’s no secret that Russia was heavily involved in trying to influence last year’s election. While we’ve known about the cyber attacks launched against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, it wasn’t until fairly recently that we learned Russia operatives had spent at least $100k buying ads on Facebook targeting certain people, demographics, groups, and […]

GOP’s Twitter Account Tries Attacking Bernie Sanders’ Medicare-for-All Plan, Fails Miserably

It’s no secret that most Republicans oppose any mention of a single-payer/Medicare-for-All health care plan. Despite the fact that nearly every other major country on Earth has some form of universal health care system in place for its citizens, the vast majority of the GOP is staunchly against ending the for-profit model we have here […]

5 Cowardly Ways Republicans Con People Into Voting Against Their Own Interests

When it comes to Republican voters, one thing that baffles many people on the left is why millions of Americans vote for a party that clearly doesn’t represent and/or fight for their own best interests.

Addressing the Idiocy of One of the Most Absurd Conservative Memes I’ve Seen

It’s not often I write an article addressing some random Internet meme that I’ve seen on social media (though it has happened). With that said, if there’s an exceptionally egregious one that I see being passed around much more than usual, that’s when I feel it needs to be addressed. For instance, this meme which […]

Dear Trump Supporters: Fox News & the Conservative Media are Lying to You (Video)

It’s not a coincidence that political discourse in this country has rapidly deteriorated over the last 20 or so years, which is the same amount of time America’s most-watched conservative entertainment network, Fox News, has existed. The network that once used the slogan “Fair and Balanced” has been anything but, often serving as nothing more […]

Donald Trump’s Not the Main Problem, the Spineless and Hypocritical Republican Party Is

When it comes to Donald Trump, there’s plenty all of us can say about what a horrific, vile, and disgusting human being he truly is. That being said, we have to at least give him this much credit: He is exactly who he is. Does he lie a lot? Nearly all of the time. Does […]

10 Facts that Prove It’s not a Matter of Opinion, Republicans are Simply Wrong

Once upon a time, my debates with my conservative counterparts were mostly about ideological differences. Sure, there were some factual clashes during the debates from time to time, but there weren’t many instances where indisputable facts were dismissed as “opinion” simply because they chose not to believe in them. Even when you quote someone like […]
