Ted Cruz’s Cockeyed Christmas Commercial Is Completely Appalling

Senator Ted Cruz has been sneaking up on Donald Trump in the polls, and leads him in Iowa, which is the first state in the Republican primaries. As Ben Carson has repeatedly blundered, his poll numbers have dwindled rapidly – to the benefit of Ted Cruz. On Friday, a video was uploaded to Ted Cruz’s […]

Ben Carson Wants To Fight ISIS By Putting American Troops On The Canadian Border

Just a few weeks ago, Dr. Ben Carson was flying high in the Republican polls.

Primary voters initially overlooked absurd proposals like […]

The Tea Party Is Slowly Dying, But It’s Being Replaced By Fascism

Remember when the Tea Party was the dumbest thing that the Republican Party had going on? Remember when we had Michele Bachmann and the half-term governor from Alaska as the best examples of how mindless GOP voters had become? Boy, those were the days, weren’t they? Just a few years ago, the Tea Party was […]

Jewish Holocaust Museum Warns Lawmakers Not To Ignore Syrian Refugees

Back in the 1930s, many members of my family lived in Germany. With the rise of Hitler, some realized something very bad was on the horizon, and they got out of the country.

Ben Carson Compares Syrian Refugees To ‘Rabid Dogs’

Presidential candidate Ben Carson has begun his decline in the polls after a rough couple of weeks of intense scrutiny of his biography.

Rep. Steve King: Ted Cruz Is God’s Pick To ‘Restore The Soul Of America’

If you asked the current GOP candidates for president, most would likely tell you that god told them to run.

As Donald Trump […]

Ben Carson Warns About United States Accepting Refugees After Paris Attacks

Yesterday, over 120 people were killed in Paris by ISIS.

Bear in mind this is the same guy who has claimed he was OK with shooting down […]

Ben Carson Apparently Doesn’t Think Shooting Down a Russian Plane is a Big Deal (Audio)

Dr. Ben Carson has repeatedly demonstrated recently during his book promotion tour presidential campaign that he not only has a fuzzy grasp on the facts of his own life, but that he also knows very little about foreign policy. He’s also claimed that free college would destroy our country, and that evolution was a lie […]

Choosing a President for Alderaan Reasons: Modern Mythmaking & the “Dark Side” of Presidential Politics

Myth matters. Gilgamesh slayed the great beast Humbaba. Persephone was abducted by Hades. Anubis weighs hearts at the threshold of eternity. There is great meaning to be gleaned from each of these mythological still shots, a meaning that does not depend on historical veracity, on whether they actually happened, or happen.   Oh, and here’s […]

We Must Put an End to the Biggest Republican Lie About Taxes

One of the biggest go-to lines for many Republicans when talking about the economy is to bash our tax code. Granted, it is an insanely complicated mess that even many in the tax industry struggle to understand. For decades, “simplifying the tax code” has been a talking point pushed by almost every Republican in this […]
