The Presidential Power of Hair Dye

K. of Washington State writes in to Irregular Times with a request:

Could you possibly offer a Robert Reich in 2016 bumper sticker?

(It’s one way of encouraging him to run. We need a good candidate with a major party affiliation. Independents like Bernard Sanders do not get elected, and he’s too old.)

Fact check: [...]

Yes, Harry, the Audacity has Infected Both Sides

Harry Canyon writes this week to Irregular Times, reacting to an Anti-Republican bumper sticker web page of ours on which we write disparagingly of the GOP:

“Politics is an audacious enterprise. It takes some audacity to claim so strong a grip on the truth as to pass a law stripping away Americans’ freedom, or requiring [...]

Editor’s Note: for an update on these cancer claims, see the March 9 2014 article, “What Connects the Matthew 4 Protocol to Dr. Mark Stengler?”

What is the Matthew 4 Cancer Protocol — and can it really cure cancer?

The Jim Cook Conspiracy

Eleanore Hartz-Cook of Wickenberg, Arizona writes in to Irregular Times:

Dear Irregular Times,

I am the widow of the late Arizona Republic reporter, editor, and columnist Jim Cook.

Religious Preference of Servicemembers and Chaplains Religious Preference % of all Servicemembers % of all Chaplains None [...]

Linkforce: Placing A Paid Link On Your Website for a Client that May Not Exist

This has got to be the most existentially perplexing link spam offer we’ve received at Irregular Times in some time:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am emailing you regarding the formation of a partnership with my client.

My name is Catherine Byrne and I work for Linkforce Ltd based here in UK. I would like [...]

Mitch McConnell: Communist Sympathizer by Association?

Yesterday’s mail brought Irregular Times quite a claim: Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is apparently a communist sympathizer! Jack Blackburn writes:

Senator Mitch McConnell is supposed to represent KY. USA in Congress for American Freedom, Idealism, and Capitalism! Does he really do this? He is marrried to the Daughter of a Chinese COMMUNIST Billionaire [...]

Irregular Times Schooled on Biblical Morality: It’s OK to kill entire races if they’re Evil Races

Samaroo Joel writes in to Irregular Times, hoping to set us straight on genocide in the Bible.

Dear friend,

I was reading your article titled “secretes of the Bible”. You quoted two verses from the Bible to proof that God of the Bible promotes Genocide. But you ignored thousands of other verses which promotes to [...]

ACLU Joins Push to Stop FISA Surveillance Renewal on the Sly

This week is the last week of the summer in which Congress plans to meet and pass bills. It’s a dangerous week for America because members of Congress know that Americans aren’t paying attention. This is the week when our leaders on Capitol Hill will try to pass laws that would embarrass them if we [...]

The safest way to predict a disaster is not to predict anything. Kirk Elliott of the Asset Preservation Institute demonstrates the technique in an e-mail blasted out to the world this week:

Red Alert!

Important Announcement

For many years we have been providing information regarding the destruction of America, the collapse of the currency and [...]

Obama is Poopy and Occupy is Pee-Pee? Conservative America Speaks.

Bern enjoys singing in a Maryland barbershop quartet in his spare time. When he’s not putting on a straw hat, he sends out e-mails explaining why he opposes Barack Obama. In a word, it’s because Barack Obama is poopy. In a message this morning, Bern explained that he’d like me to put these images on [...]
