With Americans Elect on the Sideline, Jokesters Hop on the Unity12 Memewagon

Americans Elect, the corporation with an aim of nominating its own candidates for President and Vice President of the United States in 2012, has remained silent for an unexpectedly long time. All of its activity, from declaring its existence as the Unity12 Task Force in April, to paying the legal bills of Unity08 in May, [...]

Pew Center Confirms There Is No Border Crisis

A new study by the Pew Hispanic Center proves that the so-called Border Crisis is nothing but a hoax. [...]

New Bonus Baloney added to the Obama Occidental Hoax Sandwich

The claim that Barack Obama registered at Occidental College as the Indonesian citizen “Barry Soetoro” was debunked well over a year ago. You probably know this. What you may not know is that American conservatives continue to circulate the story as if it were breaking news. As they move the hoax along, new bits are [...]

Valley Forge Tea Party Swallows Obama Birth Certificate Hoax

It’s been more than six months since the notion has been thoroughly debunked that an “AP article” proving that Barack Obama somehow registered at Occidental College as “Barry Soetoro” and therefore is really a secret Indonesian! It’s utterly untrue, but some people really really really want it to be true. They want it to be [...]

Did Barack Obama Apply to Occidental College as a Foreigner Named Barry Soetero? Is New Jersey a Portal for the Flaxxian Alliance Starfleet?

It claims that an Occidental College shows proof that Barack Obama registered there as an undergraduate under the name “Barry Soetoro,” and as a foreign student. Aha! Here is the smoking gun proof, the posts declare, that Barack [...]

Hatchet Job on Sarah Palin and Thomas Muthee Forthcoming?

We were contacted today by the agent for prominent co-authors (I won’t name them out of courtesy) who are collaborating on an article regarding the connection between Sarah Palin and Thomas Muthee. You may recall that Sarah Palin, the vice presidential candidate, sat in the audience three years ago as Thomas Muthee preached before her [...]

Now it can be Told: What Was Recovered Bigfoot Eating?

Bigfoot was filled with road kill, reads the headline.

How sad that we humans in our ever-encroaching ways have pushed the Bigfoot out of their natural habitat and taken away the grubs and berries on which they previously fed. With a nonzero instantaneous possibility that a cryptid gathering roadkill will be hit by an oncoming [...]

War On Halloween from Consumer Product Safety Commission

Stories were invented back in the 1980s by fanatical right wing Christian groups who hated Halloween because of their religious belief that Halloween is a satanic holiday. These groups tried to get parents to fear trick or treating by spreading false rumors about mysterious, un-named neighbors all across America who used Halloween to attack children. These Christian groups got local TV news and newspapers to spread their warnings that all candy should be checked, just in case a neighbor had pumped cyanide into a Reese’s peanut butter cup. [...]
