Republican Senator Shoots Down His Own Party's IRS Obama Scandal

Republican Senator Shoots Down His Own Party's IRS Obama Scandal

An unintended consequence of the Republican attacks on the IRS has been that they have shined a big spotlight on their own dark money activities. People are now finding out that these conservative groups have been committing perjury by lying to IRS on a regular basis about their partisan political activities in order to avoid paying taxes.

The Republican planned summer of Obama scandals has sputtered and died. House Republicans will continue to chase their own tails on Benghazi and the IRS, but Blunt’s comments illustrate that a large majority of the Senate has no interest in pursuing bogus Obama scandals.

It looks like some parts of the mainstream media might be starting to figure out that the Republican strategy is to lie to them on a daily basis. Even full awareness of the GOP’s strategy won’t stop the press from reporting their lies as facts, but maybe they’ll actually ask a question or two before they pass off cooked up scandals and talking points as facts.

Westboro Baptist Church Praises Deaths Of Arizona Firefighters, Vows To Picket Funerals

The quasi-religious group also tweeted out a news release detailing plans for the protest. WBC spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper also took to Twitter, calling the fire a "marvelous work of God" that caused the so-called church to "bow in humble thanks and praise to God!"

Obama Destroys Paul Ryan's Claim that America is Facing an Immediate Debt Crisis

Obama Destroys Paul Ryan's Claim that America is Facing an Immediate Debt Crisis

The only way that Paul Ryan’s cuts like 47% in education, and 32% in infrastructure make sense is to portray them as necessary in the face of an urgent crisis.

What Republicans won’t admit is that President Obama’s policies are the reason why we don’t have an immediate debt crisis.

Jeb Covers Up The Family Legacy of Economic Destruction With a Bushel of Obama Lies

In order to explain away the facts, Jeb Bush has to repeat stupid and obvious lies about the president passing the “largest tax increase in history,” and “not being serious about the debt.” Entitlement spending and how this debt was created are two separate issues that Republicans are trying to mix up in order to accomplish their ideological goal of destroying the social safety net.

Before the sequester, Obama had already slashed the debt by $2.5 trillion. However, this apparently isn’t serious enough for Jeb Bush.

Gun Nuts Gone Wild!

Gun Nuts Gone Wild!

What do you think about these "crisis education" people scaring unsuspecting gun owners then using that fear to separate those gun owners from their hard earned money? Not only are these people not being ethical in business, but they are turning people away from the government with their bold faced lies!

Lawyers said Bush couldn’t spy on Americans. He did it anyway.

Lawyers said Bush couldn’t spy on Americans. He did it anyway.

A remarkable document released by The Guardian gives the public its first in-depth look at the legal process that justified the dragnet surveillance programs undertaken during President George W. Bush’s first term. And they make clear that lots of people involved in the process — government lawyers, judges, and the lawyers of private telecommunications companies — believed the Bush administration had stepped over the legal line.

Why Are Right Wingers Engaged Full Time Lying About President Obama?

Why Are Right Wingers Engaged Full Time Lying About President Obama?
If you think about it, the answer is quite simple. The right wing wants to take focus off all the great harm it is trying to do to this country and the people in it.

More GOP Fail: Private Sector Jobs Boom As Obamacare Doesn't Harm Growth

More GOP Fail: Private Sector Jobs Boom As Obamacare Doesn't Harm Growth

If Republicans don’t have the economy, the private sector (aka, “business), or jobs, and they already ceded national security and judgment to Democrats, what do they have left? Hating immigrants, hating gays, hating women, and pushing a patriarchal and warped version of their “values” onto the rest of the country (see Texas and North Carolina). Perhaps this explains the “divide” you see in our country. One party cares about the people and the country, another is desperately trying to appease anyone willing to vote against their own financial self interest, and apparently only hate will do that.

The Republican Party Has Become Toxic to High Information Voters

The Republican Party Has Become Toxic to High Information Voters

However, upon closer inspection, there is one data point that stands out. In the city of Cambridge, home to both Harvard University and M.I.T, Ed Markey beat Gomez 89-11 percent. That data point stands as a testament to how toxic the Republican Party has become for high information voters.

With their disdain for intellectuals, their flat refusal to acknowledge global warming, their denial of evolution and their inability to comprehend that rape can result in pregnancy, the modern, heavily tea-stained version of the Republican Party is simply unpalatable to the vast majority of scientists, professors and other educated professionals. As GOP candidates continue to pander to aging white religious fundamentalists and conspiracy theorists, they undermine their own hopes for reclaiming the White House in 2016.

Thank the President for fighting the illegal wildlife trade!

Thank the President for fighting the illegal wildlife trade!

Please send a message to the White House thanking President Obama for making the fight against poaching a national priority. By doing so, you will support the protection of iconic species, including elephants and rhinos, and make the world a safer place for humans and animals alike.

Seriously, after listening to some of the videos above, can you tell me how ANYONE could listen to this wingnut and believe what he has to say? He makes the LIES told by Rush Limbaugh look like those of an amateur.

Bearded Muslims and the Incredible Mental Midgetry of the Tea Party

Bearded Muslims and the Incredible Mental Midgetry of the Tea Party

Grover Norquist is a Muslim because he wears a beard. It shows that Tea Party portrayals of President Barack Obama stem from a common core of irrationality. Certainly if Obama can be a Muslim because he doesn’t back the idea of religious crusades, then Norquist can be a Muslim because he has a beard.

It’s no wonder they can think women’s bodies can repel a rapist’s sperm or that men are superior to women and white people to black people.

Tea Party is the American Taliban

Tea Party is the American Taliban

For a fictional show (based on ACTUAL events), this is the truest news story you have ever seen. This talks about what the Tea Party and their harm to the United States, as well as the voter registration laws republican states passed to prevent some Democrats from even being able to vote. This talks about the Tea Party, aka the American Taliban.

If you usually skip watching videos, don't make that mistake this time. This is a video that everyone should watch and then share with others. It tells it like it is.

The Tea Party’s Campaign For Mass Stupidity Promoted By Fox News:

The Tea Party’s Campaign For Mass Stupidity Promoted By Fox News:

The Tea Party movement has never been confused with Mensa, the high IQ society. In fact, there have been numerous studies that rank Tea Partiers at the bottom of the intellectual scale, particularly those recently elected to congress. As a group they dismiss the findings of science on matters as diverse as climate change and evolution. And they are skeptical of academics and Ivy Leaguers whom they regard as out-of-touch elitists.

So it is in keeping with their aversion to education that they are now leading the fight against a set of teaching principles developed to insure that K-12 students are prepared to enter college. And predictably, Fox News is only too happy to advance their crusade for national ignorance.
