Ethan Czahor Exemplifies Republican Problem With Bigotry

When I described the man Jeb Bush hired to run the online strategy for his presidential campaign as “outdated” a couple of days ago, I had no idea. It turns out that Ethan Czahor was too slow in deleting tweets in which he repeatedly referred to women as “sluts” and his described his fears that […]

Richard Shelby Introduces Constitutional Amendment To Encourage State Of Perpetual War

Yesterday, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama, proposed a new amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

The constitutional amendment introduced through S.J. Res. 9 would allow the U.S. Congress to pass a budget with deficit spending only if the United States is at war.

The amendment is being […]

GOP White Supremacist In Congress Tells Democrats To Hurry Up And Kick Hispanic Kids Out Of The USA

The legislation that Steve Scalise demands the Democrats allow to move forward would result in federal agents going across America, hunting down Hispanics that Steve Scalise and his racist allies find undesirable, breaking up families, and sending children out of the country. GOP leadership told us not to worry, but right now, before our eyes, Steve Scalise is promoting a NeoNazi vision for America. […]

Jeb Bush Hires Architect Of Abusive, Outdated Website To Run His Online Strategy

Violating Americans’ trust using a behind-the-curve cultural appeal? It sounds like this guy from Hipster.com will fit in quite nicely with the Jeb Bush for President team. […]

Is This A Satanic Bill From Republicans In Congress?

Christian literalists warn to be on the lookout for anything that incorporates the number 666, because “666 is the number, or name, of the wild beast with seven heads and ten horns that comes out of the sea.” You may be thinking, “What beast with seven heads and ten horns that comes out of the […]

Jeb Bush Tours Wealthy Influence Peddlers

Next week, Jeb Bush begins a fundraising push in the wood-panneled dining room of the posh Hotel Duval in Tallahassee, Florida, pictured below. Then, he flies off to an evening reception at the home of Henry Kravis, of the multinational private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company. […]

Walter Jones Favors Free Speech for Politicking Churches, Opposes Free Speech for Protesters

Yesterday, I noted that North Carolina Republican Representative Walter Jones had introduced legislation (H.R. 153) that would let churches start entering political campaigns without losing their special tax-exempt status. Jones terms it a “free speech” issue.

Today, I learned that Rep. Jones is a sponsor of legislation that would make it possible to toss protesters […]

Rand Paul Is A Phone Case

We’ve been writing about some rather odd small time candidates for President of the United States, from Robert Milnes, who dreams of bringing the Nazi Party into American politics, to Nathan Norman, who harbors the fantasy of bringing Newt Gingrich into the Libertarian Party with an offer of absolutely no money down.

We ought not […]

3 Republicans Break Ranks, Vote Against Repealing Obamacare

Republicans in Congress are no longer unanimous in their opposition to the health care reform law. […]

Senate Republicans Vote To Kick Children Out Of America

Today, Republicans in the United States Senate voted in favor of H.R. 240, a bill that would kick large numbers of children out of the United States – in the name of Homeland Security.

Right wing conspiracy theorists come up with all kinds of crazy ideas about secret plans by FEMA to set up concentration […]

Huckabee And Kids With Guns

It’s a story that we hear over and over again. A tiny child finds a parent’s gun and disaster results. This time, a 3 year-old boy shot both his father and his pregnant mother in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Other recent incidents in the United States include a 2 year-old who shot his mother to death […]
