Samantha Bee’s Take on Brexit and the Dangers of Donald Trump Was Brilliant (Video)

Even though it’s been a few days since the Brexit vote shocked the world, I fully expected Samantha Bee to have plenty to say when her show Full Frontal aired on Monday. Being that she’s not known as someone who’s ever be afraid to express her opinion on something, I was looking forward to hearing her take […]

5 Reasons Why the Supreme Court’s Latest Abortion Ruling is a Humiliating Defeat for Republicans

Without a doubt the big news of Monday was the Supreme Court, in a 5-3 ruling, striking down Texas’ highly restrictive anti-abortion laws. This was easily the biggest ruling on abortion in two decades, and it’s already being considered a landmark decision for women’s rights advocates. To summarize, Texas Republicans knew that they couldn’t place an […]

John Oliver Tells Americans Exactly What They Need to Hear About Donald Trump (Video)

I knew John Oliver was going to have plenty to say Sunday night in regards to the Brexit vote that will ultimately lead to Britain leaving the European Union — and I was not disappointed. After running down how this vote is already hurting the British economy, Oliver took aim at the long-term (and very likely negative) impact […]

Brand New Poll is an Embarrassing Disaster for Donald Trump

He spoke about them plenty during the Republican presidential primary, but you’re not likely to hear Donald Trump praising many polls any time soon now that most of them show Hillary Clinton beating him in their head-to-head matchup. I wouldn’t be shocked if he starts bashing and attacking many of the same polls he once used as a […]

Green Party Hero Jill Stein Busted Trying to Cover Up Her Praise of Bigotry-Driven Brexit

I recently wrote an article where I called out Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein for posting a statement on her website that spoke very favorably of the bigotry-driven Brexit vote, calling it a “victory” for people who are tired of a “rigged system.” Needless to say, I received a good amount of backlash from […]

It’s Time Sane Republicans Admit the Truth: They No Longer Have a Party

While I’m not a fan of Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Peter King, John Kasich or Lindsey Graham, I’ll at least give them credit for being sane. Sure, I disagree with them on practically every major political issue we face in this country, but at least when it’s all said and done, when I hear them […]

Stop Calling Donald Trump a Christian, Because He Damn Sure Isn’t One

There are a lot of things people can say about Donald Trump, but calling him a Christian shouldn’t be one of them. Over the years I’ve grown increasingly annoyed with the phrase “Christian” being thrown around as if owning a bible or going to church makes someone an actual “Christian.” While everyone is free to call themselves […]

Green Party Candidate Jill Stein Sides with Donald Trump, Praises Bigotry-Driven Brexit Vote

Update: Since this story was published, Jill Stein secretly changed her statement online without indicating she did so. What’s posted now is not what her original statement was. While I admire the passion of Green Party people, too often I’ve found many of them to act like a liberal version of the tea party. One […]

I Would Like to Address Gun Fanatics & Their Ridiculous Pro-Gun Propaganda

I’ve reached my limit when it comes to people who can’t even attempt to be the slightest bit rational or reasonable about sensible gun regulations. When I say “sensible,” that does not mean I support gun confiscations. It’s absolutely ridiculous how any time we try to have an adult conversation about guns in this country, gun fanatics go […]

Yes, the Brexit Vote Has a Lot in Common with Donald Trump & Should Terrify Us All

I didn’t write anything about it, but I had a feeling that the Brexit vote was going to go the way the bigots, racists, radicals and fear-mongers wanted it to. Selling fear is much easier than trying to be reasonable and logical, which always puts those trying to explain complex situations based on factual information […]
