Video: John Oliver Dissects America's Deranged Televangelism Industry

YouTube This is just brilliant, as John Oliver takes apart the televangelism industry and the conscienceless hucksters who shamelessly bilk gullible people out of their life savings. U.S. tax law allows television preachers to get away with almost anything. We know this from personal experience. Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption will not...

In Which Breitbart's Ben Shapiro Says Mass Deportation Would Be Cheap

Image via Shutterstock The right wing propagandists at Breitbart "News" are frantically cheering for Donald Trump's mass deportation plans, of course; but the saddest and ugliest comments of all are coming from a guy named "Ben Shapiro," who thinks mass deportation would be cheap and easy. There's a case against mass deportation,...

"Strict Constitutionalist" Rush Limbaugh Cheers Trump's Call to Destroy the 14th Amendment

Media Matters The right wing media and talk shows are absolutely smitten with Donald Trump's immigration plan, because it's thoroughly down and out vicious. But the revealing part of all the exultations is the way people who fetishize the US Constitution, like Rush Limbaugh for example, are suddenly gung ho about...

Sunday Evening Jam: Courtney Barnett, "Dead Fox"

YouTube I just took a run around the right wing blogs and they're all gushing about Donald Trump's insanely xenophobic reality-challenged immigration statement. It's a grotesque celebration of pure meanness, horrible people exulting about the potential deportation of millions of families. At times like this when the entire right wing world is...

Donald Trump Has Released an Immigration Policy Plan and It's Completely Insane

Image via Shutterstock Donald Trump has actually released an immigration policy plan, which is more than any of the other candidates have done. However. It's absolutely insane. Xenophobia completely off the scale. We're talking batshit, cubed. Let me summarize this bizarre fear-mongering screed. Trump insists he's going to build a gigantic impenetrable wall along the...

Sunday Jam: Galia Social, "Doorways"

YouTube Whew. It was exhausting just watching this epic performance of a tune with seemingly endless changes. Very impressive work from Galia Social. http://www.facebook.com/galiasocial http://www.youtube.com/galiasocial http://www.galiasocial.bandcamp.com

In Which Donald Trump Gloats About Dominating Megyn Kelly

This is what happens in the conservative world when a woman, any woman, even one as ostensibly powerful and well-placed as Megyn Kelly, goes up against a right wing caveman like Donald Trump: Donald Trump Says Roger Ailes 'Knows That's Not the Way to Talk to Me' Kelly began a...

Lawyer for Planned Parenthood Smear Videos: Tissue Donation Is Just Like "Nazi Gas Chambers"

SoundCloud One of the lawyers from an anti-choice legal group that works with the Orwellian "Center for Medical Progress" went on a crazed conspiracy-themed radio show this week and compared the donation of fetal tissue for medical research to "Nazi gas chambers." "It's reminiscent of, you know, with the Nazi gas...

Fox's Greg Gutfeld: Women Should Have No Right to Donate Fetal Tissue for Research

Media Matters You knew this was coming, and Fox News angry manbaby Greg Gutfeld is now going there. Gutfeld says women should have no right to donate fetal tissue for medical research. He compares this to the second amendment, saying you have a right to own a gun but you don't have...

Ben Carson Slammed Planned Parenthood for Fetal Tissue Donation, but Did Research on Aborted Fetal Tissue Himself

Like all the Republican candidates (and in fact, nearly all Republican politicians), young Earth creationist Dr. Ben Carson advocates defunding Planned Parenthood. He told Fox News's Megyn Kelly recently that medical research can be conducted without the use of fetal tissue, saying the Planned Parenthood "sting" videos make him question...

Rand Paul Went After Donald Trump, and Boy Did It Backfire

YouTube It's too funny to see the Republican candidates tearing at each other like crazed ferrets on bath salts. If Donald Trump achieves nothing else with his gonzo campaign, he'll have done serious, lasting damage to the image of the Republican Party. The video above shows Rand Paul trying to get a...

Erick Erickson's RedState on Hillary Clinton: "Even a Homely Woman Can Sleep Her Way Into Power"

When RedState founder Erick Erickson very publicly uninvited Donald Trump to his right wing conference, claiming it was because of Trump's woman-hating comments, people who actually pay attention to the absolutely horrible things Erickson himself has said (not just about women, he's equal opportunity horrible) pointed out the sheer hypocrisy...

Bernie Sanders Suddenly Leads Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire Poll

There are still well over 400 days left before the presidential election, so polls don't really mean a lot at this point; but still, it's surprising to see Bernie Sanders pull ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has rocketed past longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton...

Donald Trump Threatens to Physically Fight "Black Lives Matter" Protesters

The most memorable moment from Donald Trump's short press conference: he said Bernie Sanders was "weak" when he allowed #BlackLivesMatter protesters to take the microphone at his rally... and actually threatened to physically fight them if they tried to do the same thing to him. The exact quote: "I don’t know...

WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump's Press Conference

Video At this point I'm only interested in Donald Trump for the inadvertent comedy he's sure to provide. And here's another opportunity for that, as Trump gives his first press conference since the Clown Car Fox News debate.
