Ben Carson Warns That Christian Bakers Are Likely To Poison LGBT Wedding Cakes

How can a man who has never been elected to public office gain enough political support to be elected President of the United States? Apparently, Ben Carson has decided that his rise to the Oval Office will be achieved using the power of outrageous statements to audiences filled with people who are ready to hate. […]

Jim Rickards Warns Of Imminent Recession. So What?

It’s surprising to me, given that the Internet enables the communication of a variety of ideas in an unprecedented diversity of forms, how predictable and repetitive its right wing conspiracy theories have become. A standard format has developed that can be identified from a mile away.

So it is with the Jim Rickards conspiracy theory […]

Do Small Time Presidential Candidates Indicate Psychological Problems of Big Time Candidates?

Over the last few weeks, we at Irregular Times have been writing about some of the less well-publicized of the 2016 presidential candidates. As we’ve moved from Midge Potts to Robert Milnes to Michael Bickelmeyer and Dinesh Ravishanker, I’ve become more uneasy. I’ve looked at the information available on many of the declared presidential candidates […]

Whatever Happened To Robocall King Dinesh Ravishanker?

Of all the unconventional presidential candidacies in the 2016 season, I have yet to find any more enigmatic than that of Dinesh Ravishanker.

Luckily for Bobby Jindal, there’s a time-tested method for getting […]

No, Heaven Is Not For Real After All

There are two versions of the story about Alex Malarkey – the Boy Who Came Back From Heaven going around the Internet.

The first tells a half truth. It admits that the book titled The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, though it claims to be “a true story” is in fact a piece of […]

The Other Bush Running For President

Everyone knows that America has already had two members of the Bush family elected President, and that another Bush, Jeb, is currently running for President. Most people aren’t aware of the other member of the Bush family running for President: Michael Bickelmeyer.

Though Bickelmeyer is seeking the Republican president nomination, there isn’t much policy […]

Pope Says It’s Normal For People To Be Violent In Response To Blasphemy

After the murder of people working at a magazine that published blasphemous cartoons of Islam’s prophet Mohammed, has blamed the magazine for the attack. Making an analogy between a blasphemous cartoon of Mohammed and an insult against his mother, the Pope warned that, “If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my […]

Did Michelangelo Really Write This Famous Saying About Aiming Too Low?

“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” Maybe I’m not reading properly, but it looks to me as if Michelangelo never said these words at all. […]

Ben Carson Worked For Pyramid Scheme To Sell Bad Medicine

There is absolutely no reliable scientific evidence showing that Nutriverus does anything at all to improve anybody’s health in any way. That didn’t stop Ben Carson from endorsing Nutriverus, and from celebrating Mannatech’s questionable products in general. […]

How Republicans Feel About The Common Core And What They Know About The Common Core

Republican rants against the Common Core tend to take on the tone of opposition to “standardized testing” and “computers”, as if the best way to educate children is to give them non-standardized tests and to deprive them of all new technology. […]
