John Boehner Sues Obama for Bypassing Congress – Then Urges Him to Bypass Congress


In something that seems straight from The Onion, several Republicans wrote a statement urging President Obama to take unilateral action on immigration – one day after House Republicans voted to sue the president… For bypassing Congress and acting unilaterally.   You really just can’t make this stuff up. In a statement posted on John Boehner’s website, Republicans […]

Michele Bachmann Says Obama Wants to Use Immigrant Children for Medical Experiments (Audio)


Well, I guess we can add this to the seemingly endless list of conspiracy theories and absurd statements Republicans have made about President Obama. During an interview with WallBuilders Live, Rep. Michele Bachmann asserted her belief that President Obama is planning to bring many of these immigrant children into the United States for the purpose of allowing […]

Coward Ted Nugent Called Me a ‘Lying Punk,’ Then Embarrassed Himself Trying to Prove It


I know, I know… people are sick and tired of hearing about the batcrap crazy Ted Nugent.  Heck, I don’t even enjoy writing about him.  But he was unfortunately thrust into the news when a few liberal websites fabricated a story that went viral, claiming that Nugent had called the Native American tribe that canceled his concert “unclean vermin.” […]

Neil deGrasse Tyson Hammers ‘Fear Factor’ of GMO’s: ‘I Don’t Have a Problem’ with them, ‘So Chill Out’


Knowing what I know about the debate over GMO’s and modified foods, I’m sure the comments made by famed astrophysicist and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson will bring about an interesting discussion. I’ve never really waded into the waters of the debate over GMO’s.  Mainly because it seems that it just causes people to shout at […]

Fox & Friends Look Like Absolute Fools Trying to Use One GOP Talking Point Against Another (Video)


How ridiculous are conservatives?  In short, pretty darn ridiculous.  So much so that they’re actually having to contradict some of their older talking points with their new ones. A perfect, hilarious example of that came during Fox News’ Fox & Friends where the hosts literally tried to push two different right-wing talking points that are in complete […]

Mocking and Debunking 10 of the Most Popular Conservative Talking Points


If there’s one thing about conservatives that never ceases to amazing me, it’s how easily they’re manipulated.  I’ve often joked that I really don’t even need to debate conservatives, all I really need to do is turn on Fox News, because they’re just going to regurgitate whatever is said on that network. They’re built on […]

Rush Limbaugh Brags That He’s Responsible for the Dumbing Down of America


Nothing quite like one of the most well known conservatives in media trying to take credit for the dumbing down of America.  But that’s what happened recently when Rush Limbaugh boasted about the fact that the United States leads the world in climate change deniers. Limbaugh said, “Fifty-four percent of Americans agreed with the statement, ‘The climate […]

Lawless Texas “Militias” Patrolling Border, Threatening Illegal Immigrants They Encounter with Death


Lunacy is apparently breaking out on the Texas border. Apparently around 10 “teams” of these clowns who like to call themselves members of “organized militias” (when in reality all they are is a bunch of guys who couldn’t outgrow playing with their G.I. Joe’s) have been “patrolling” along the Texas border looking for illegal immigrants. […]

Ted Nugent: Native American Tribe That Canceled Concert is ‘Weak and Stupid’

Perhaps many of you were duped this week by the fake story pushed by some liberal blogs about Ted Nugent calling Native Americans “unclean vermin.” And if you didn’t happen to catch the original story, maybe you ran across the second story written by Addicting Info’s Stephen D. Foster Jr. claiming that Nugent “doubled down” on their […]

Satanists Using Hobby Lobby Ruling to Shield Women from Anti-Choice Laws


I learned a long time ago to be careful what you wish for.  When the Supreme Court ruled that Hobby Lobby could use its religion to violate parts of a federal law, anyone with half a brain knew that the floodgates had just been opened. Because that ruling wasn’t just about Hobby Lobby being given […]
