The news hit the political front with the expected clash of ideologies. The left was appalled at yet another blow that would flood the political process with a tidal wave of cash. The right hailed their newfound “freedom” to extend their political reach with that tidal wave reaching across the entire nation. While most of the media plainly state the ruling as striking down limits on campaign contributions, few are willing to challenge the Roberts Court claim that these limits “intrude without justification on a citizen’s ability to exercise ‘the most fundamental First Amendment activities’”. Is the real purpose of campaign finance caps, as Investor’s Business Daily states, an unjustified means of “trying toprevent people financing their own political speech”? Fact: McCutcheon … Continue reading
The only thing they have left is the fake “Movie Star” histrionics of a phony vigilante and the memory of another fake Movie Star named Ronald Ray-Gun, whose accomplishments in GOP fan fiction far outstrip his actual accomplishments in real life. Continue reading
Freedom of speech only works if those who pretend to be our “press” actually attempt to speak the truth. Otherwise, we’re looking at exactly what we’re looking at: a worldwide press emulating old Soviet Pravda. Continue reading
Ghost writing is nothing new for Farah, who ghosted Rush Limbaugh’s last “book,” the delightfully mature entitled “See! I Told You So.” But that was just a theory, of course. I mean, WHO has underpaid amanuenses write their syndicated columns FOR them, after all? Ridiculous! Continue reading

Can we stop NOT laughing at the spectacle of imbeciles, whores and unemployable hacks touting the false and ridiculous party line that global warming is a myth because it’s not warm? Can we stop NOT sneering at the uninformed, specious and intellectually incurious or bankrupt affecting an air of intellectual superiority even as they prove — forensically and beyond a reasonable doubt — that they are PRECISELY the opposite?
Making up fake narratives to whip up their cannon fodder, the Republicans openly plot to take over the country by violence and intimidation. Continue reading
On Tuesday, Bruce Springsteen released “High Hopes,” his 18th studio album. Springsteen also took to the stage on “Late Night” with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to mock New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in the wake of Christie’s BridgeGate Scandal: Christie’s intial explanation, “that it was a move to punish a Democratic mayor who had refused to endorse Christie’s reelection bid,” is being met with a lot of skepticism as “two special legislative committees” begin investigations into the scandal on Thursday. The panels will have subpoena power, which means that in the coming weeks and months, a parade of former and current Christie administration officials — as well as many of the governor’s closest political associates — will be called to testify. … Continue reading
