Outtakes from the First Jeb Bush For President Campaign Advertisement

Jeb Bush is in the process of making his very first commercial for the 2016 presidential campaign season. Irregular Times has received secret outtakes from the cutting room floor, which we share with you in this video.

A Very Tea Party Exit By Kerry Bentivolio

No one was odder than Thaddeus McCotter… until Kerry Bentivolio came along. Michigan’s 11th congressional district has a habit of electing Republican politicians with a tangential relationship to reality, and Bentivolio slipped out of Congress almost as soon as he slipped in, replaced by Dave Trott, a lawyer who made his fortune by helping banks […]

Ben Carson Super PAC Lurches Clumsily Out Of Gate In Iowa

Jeb Bush Begins His 2016 Presidential Campaign With Corruption

It’s official: Jeb Bush is running for President in 2016.

This morning, in a message to his followers, Jeb Bush wrote that he will now “actively explore” […]

Ben Carson Wants Americans To Surrender Civilian Control Of The Military

Ben Carson is running for President, and seeking the help of voters, acting in our democratic system of government, as he does so. Yet, part of Ben Carson’s political platform is to place a huge section of the government outside of our democracy.

Ben Carson’s plan is to make the operations of the U.S. military […]

Ben Carson, Torture, and Immaturity

Last week, when Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson learned of the release of the results of a Senate Intelligence Committee report detailing the illegal brutality with which CIA agents had tortured people who turned out to have been mistakenly imprisoned, what did he do to demonstrate the kind of moral leadership he would demonstrate if […]

Jeb Bush Is Morally Absent On Torture

Jeb Bush is planning to begin his campaign for the 2016 Republican party presidential nomination, but as he does so, his political organizing is remarkably unbalanced.

Jeb Bush is laying the groundwork for gathering huge amounts of money. He’s hitting up family friends, and calling in the debts of corporate executives who profited from […]

Rick Santorum 2016: The Pros And Cons

Retired U.S. Senator Rick Santorum has announced that he will be running for President in 2016. In 2012, Santorum was one of the Blip Of The Month Republicans, as GOP favor flittered around between him and Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry before settling on the year’s biggest loser of all, Mitt Romney. Rick […]

Honesty In A Politician: Roger Jewell For President

It is often said that there’s no such thing as an honest politician. Anyone who says this has, however, never heard of Republican presidential candidate Roger Jewell.

While other presidential candidates talk about their great personalities and impressive experience, Roger Jewell talks about his flaws. He doesn’t do this just as a quick mea […]

Fred Upton Positions Himself For Success In An Era Of Oil Company Cash Abundance

Today, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing called:“Are We Positioning America for Success in an Era of Energy Abundance?”

The answer to that question found during the hearing may be largely determined by the success with which Chairman of the subcommittee, Fred Upton, has positioned himself to receive money from the […]

Vote For Torture – Elect Marco Rubio President 2016

Yesterday, reacting to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation that found that the CIA had engaged in widespread torture of prisoners, many of whom were not involved in terrorism in any way, obtaining no national security benefit as a result, Senator Marco Rubio, who is planning to run for President in 2016, released a statement saying […]
