Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"

Lies, gibberish and the dangerous evolution of "fake news"
Donald Trump did not start out telling his audience that the media was making up stories about him.  He only said that all the stories written about him were negative. That, he said is what he calls “fake news.” He also said that he invented that phrase (he didn’t), which apparently gave him the right... Read more »

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew

Christians United for Israel may be pro-Israel, but they're not pro-Jew
When people tell you that they’re members of Christians United for Israel, it’s just a new way of saying, “Some of my best friends are Jews.” Or, like pedophile Roy Moore’s wife, Kayla famously quipped, “One of our attorneys is a JYOOOO.”  To see Mrs. Moore spitting out the word Jew like it was spoiled...

Did 9/11 really happen or is it just Libtard, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton fake news?

There is no proof that smoking cigarettes is bad for your health or that it causes lung cancer
The following piece was published on June 7, 2016.  I’m re-posting it tonight for that one guy out there in Maricopa County who reads my stuff and keeps asking for a non-Trump piece: A new study from the London Institute of Ethical Science (LIES) was released over the weekend and it clearly demonstrates that all...

Donald Trump is the first Republican to win Wisconsin since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952
Donald Trump told a clamoring throng of supporters in Fargo, North Dakota this week that he was the first Republican to win Wisconsin since 1952. If you’re one of the two or three people who read my stuff regularly, I would hope that you’re thinking to yourself, “Hmmm, that doesn’t seem right.” You would be... Read more »

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?

Is Ivanka Trump really a feckless vagina?
Samantha Bee stirred up quite a controversy last month when she called First (and favorite) Daughter, Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt.” Out of respect for our sensibilities, I substituted the the v-word for the c-word in the title. It’s hard to say how any word can become such anathema to all that it is universally... Read more »

Is Vladimir Putin tired of winning?
During his campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly promised, “You’re going to get tired of winning.”  Who knew that he was talking to Vladimir Putin?
