Facebook Isn’t The Problem. Congress is.

Congress has recently grilled Facebook’s Marc Zukerberg and Facebook itself has come in for a lot of (well-deserved) abuse in recent weeks. But is Facebook really the problem? Ms. Zeynep Tufekci, a cyber-security expert and commentator, rather suspects not. The real problem, she suggests, is Congress, which has had the power to regulate social media,…

Of Course Christians Support Trump. He’s Theirs.

William B. Turner Oh, lawd, another of these tedious stories about how puzzling it is that “evangelicals” still support the Donald. Um, looked at the history of Christianity lately? This is so tiresome. People who want to evaluate a person’s conduct for conformity to Christianity always whip out their bibles. This is pointless. The bible…

The Death Knell of White Supremacy

William B. Turner Of course there will be some significant rump of people who have their ideological blinders on so firmly that they will hold onto their racism, but the Donald, apparent savior of white people, may well kill off “white supremacy” in the United States. At least we can hope. We saw some evidence…

The Death Of Libertarianism?

By Michael Jay Tucker There’s an interesting article over in The Washington Post by Fareed Zakaria, The Reagan revolution is officially over.

The DCCC Screws Up Again

By Michael Jay Tucker What is wrong with the Democratic Party? Or, rather, what’s wrong with its elites? Why don’t they get it? Why do they keep screwing up? Case in point, the Party, and particularly the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), has repeatedly backed state and local candidates who don’t have the support of…

The Bristol Palin and Stormy Daniels Abstinence Road Show

William B. Turner Multiple reports lately about how the Trump administration is moving funds away from addressing teen pregnancy in effective ways into “abstinence only” “sex education,” which multiple studies have shown is entirely ineffective at best, harmful at worst. This is the epitome of the Trump administration. It perfectly exemplifies the point that Trump…

Top Pick To Replace Ryan Is a White Supremacist

Ku Klux Klan Cross Burning

Wait. What? This guy’s for real? Alas, so it seems. The leading Republican candidate in the race to take Paul Ryan’s place in Congress is a chap named Paul Nehlen, a fairly obscure non-entity who has been floating around Wisconsin politics for some time. The kicker? He is a white supremacist who’s best known for…

Suing Mr. Jones

By Michael Jay Tucker So I read the other day that three of the parents whose children died at Sandy Hook are suing Alex Jones, he of InfoWars, and the man who first widely promoted the appalling falsehood that it was all a “false flag operation,” that the dead were merely crisis actors, and that…

Liberals Taking Charge of Democrats

defiance

By Michael Jay Tucker There was an interesting article over on the Washington Post last week, “First-time, liberal candidates are flooding the Democratic primaries,” by Kevin Schaul and Kevin Uhrmacher. It seems, say the authors, that hundreds (maybe thousands) of liberals are entering the Democratic primaries. For the first time in a long while, it…

Ennui

By @BossBird17 Looking back over the past year, it’s unfathomable that Trump’s time in office has only been fifteen months. Indeed, it feels as if fifteen years have passed. In the book, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, one of the writers accurately depicted what every citizen is experiencing by conveying that we are locked…
