. We may fiercely disagree with virtually every damnable thing uttered by conservative Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal, in 'normal' times, but he brings a superb analysis of the peculiar Pastor Mike Pence and other obsequious hangers-on camping in the rarified stench of Trump World. . The Puritan Pence is now weighted down with more consternation and outright in- "party" charges as a result ... Stephens baldly named the obsequious governor's human swamp of a running mate thoroughly out of control; and asserts that the alt-right Indianan shotgun rider is a Political Enabler. . Even a Moral Enabler. . Go [...]
Rev. Barry Lynn returns to the show with a new collection of his articles, speeches and testimony dealing with the separation of church and state. Great timing after John Oliver's epic takedown of televangelists on Sunday. Plus, journalist Will Bunch on the Trump phenom and more!
Chris Christie squeezes into the already-crowded GOP clown car today! Nicole discusses his unlikely bid and more with the Gliberal Goddesses (GottaLaff and Amy Simon) along with the rest of the news. Plus Frank Schaeffer on religious hypocrisy
It's interesting that the newest iteration of Swiftboating rears its ugly head on the day we try to Reset the Net. The thing the new swiftboaters, like Allen West, should remember is that the internet is forever. Write something once and it's there forever. So, let's take the war criminal Allen West as an example. Don't feel like you have to click on the link as Allen West's site deserves to die of loneliness, but back on Dec. 10, 2013, he wrote an article entitled The men Obama has abandoned. In it, he wrote, President Obama is in South Africa [...]
The Supreme Court today heard a challenge to the Affordable Care Act's mandated coverage of contraceptives. Two cases of corporations owned by religious zealots trying to impose their religious beliefs on their employees while claiming their religious rights are being infringed upon (welcome to opposite world) were rolled into this one hearing before the highest court in the land. It looks like the audio from today's arguments won't be posted until Friday. When it is posted, it will be found here.) Meanwhile, the Obama administration just lifted the ban that kept BP from pursuing new leases in the Gulf of [...]
I've recently made a concerted effort to stay away from playing clips of right wing nut jobs on my show, but sometimes they say things so absurd they figuratively make my head explode! There were two such incidents yesterday that metaphorically drove me crazy. I know Joe Biden gets chided for his misuse of the word "literally". But it seems that when he does it, it's little more than an annoyance or something easily mocked. But Rush Limbaugh is supposed to be a professional broadcaster. His stock in trade is words! The clip below is a perfect example of why [...]
Regular listeners of my show know that I've, at times, been critical of Ed Schultz. But nothing I've seen or heard from him before raised my ire as his segment last night on the Keystone XL pipeline. I happened to catch him shilling for the project with former Montana governor Brian Schweitzer on a couple of occasions, and was incensed when he basically concluded that even if the US acted responsibly with regard to the future of the planet, other countries like China and India won't, so we might as well reap the monetary profits from raping the earth. But [...]
Although that's how Hollywood depicts Jesus, history tells us he didn't quite look like that. But don't expect to hear facts from your favorite newsmodel at the Fox "News" Network. Fox's "Rising Star"™ Megyn Kelly tells us that, in response to a Slate piece entitled "Santa Claus Should Not Be A White Many Anymore": "...for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white, but this person is just arguing that, that maybe we should also have a black Santa. But you know, Santa is what he is and just so you know, we're just debating this cuz someone [...]
