TransCanada is Seizing Private U.S. Lands to Build Keystone XL Pipeline – and Republicans Don’t Care

There is one thing that’s almost always a constant with the Republican party – conservatives have an irrational fear of the government. Their distrust and hatred for government is really the driving force behind their unhealthy obsession with our Second Amendment. There are literally millions of conservatives in this country who have stockpiles of weapons […]

John Boehner Goes Off on Embarrassing Twitter Temper Tantrum Following Keystone XL Veto

President Obama officially vetoed the Keystone XL pipeline bill yesterday, which shouldn’t have surprised anybody because the president said he was going to veto the bill weeks ago. But environmentalists really shouldn’t be celebrating too much, because this bill is eventually going to pass. It’s clear the president is going to use the pipeline as leverage […]

Senate Republicans Block Amendment Requiring Steel for Keystone XL Pipeline to be Made in America

After years of back and forth debate that only seem to be delaying the inevitable, Republicans finally have enough power in Congress to send a bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline to the president’s desk. The Obama administration has said it will veto any such bill and Republicans don’t seem to have the necessary 67 […]

Senator Bernie Sanders To Introduce Roads And Jobs Bill

I can’t remember a single proposal from Republicans in recent history that would actually create jobs, yet all we’ve heard from them is some variation of the same old talking point about how President Obama is holding back the economy. Once Speaker Boehner or Mitch McConnell repeat their usual “it’s all Obama’s fault” speech, then […]

Here are Some Facts About the Keystone XL Pipeline Republicans Really Don’t Want Americans to See

The other day I was talking with someone about the Keystone XL pipeline and I said it reminded me somewhat of the story of the tooth fairy. Only small children could believe such a ridiculous story about a magical fairy who travels all over the globe, exchanging money for discarded teeth. At least with Santa […]

3 Things Republicans Have Blocked That Americans Support More Than The Keystone XL Pipeline

One of the biggest talking points Republicans like to use as it relates to the Keystone XL pipeline (aside from their lies about jobs) is that the American people overwhelmingly support this project and want to see it built. To be fair, that’s pretty much true. About 65 percent of Americans surveyed said they support the […]

Fox News Host Embarrassed After Blatant Lie About Keystone XL Pipeline Gets Debunked

The Keystone XL pipeline is one of the many Republican lies that just won’t die. If you listen to Republicans tell the story, this is some massive job creator that would help the United States become energy independent. The problem is, neither of those claims are true. It’s absurd that Republicans have billed this as […]

John Boehner Caught Blatantly Lying About Job Creation by Fact Checking Site

Recently during a debate with a conservative I asked a fairly straightforward and simple question, “Outside of tax breaks for the rich, name me one bill Republicans have supported that would directly create jobs?” Their answer?  The Keystone XL pipeline. And I could see why they would think that.  If you listen to Republicans talk […]

Boehner Has Accomplished Nothing, but He’s Managed to Obsess Over President Obama – Just Look At This

While I know it’s natural for Republicans and Democrats to oppose one another, what I saw when I went over to House Speaker John Boehner’s Twitter account was—well, pathetic. He’s presided over the most unproductive Congress in United States history, and will probably go down as one of the worst Speakers of the House ever, […]
