On Thursday President Barack Obama gave a speech focused on our nation’s anti-terrorism strategy, and during that speech Obama made it clear his administration will continue to use drone strikes to kill individuals suspected of engaging in or supporting terrorism, even if those suspects happen to be American citizens. Speaking about the assassination of American [...]
So Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s visiting Iowa this week, and while he absolutely positively 100% has no presidential ambitions (according to him), I’m left wondering when he’s actually going to spend time here in Wisconsin. After all, it’s not as if Walker’s done a bang-up job governing Wisconsin.
Perhaps Gov. Walker should spend more time [...]
All these past months I have been on a tirade against the Keystone XL pipeline partly because the dang thing would run thousands of miles across the country…risking any number of fragile local eco-systems…with the resulting fuels exported around the world from the gulf refineries…with only a small group of Americans actually benefiting…with the major [...]
In a short question and answer session with AARP, President Obama readily admits that the fuels refined from oil transported to the gulf through the Keystone XL pipeline will be exported…not used in the good ole USA and won’t hold down the prices of domestic fuels…no matter what the proponents of the pipeline would have [...]
Let’s start with Jonathan Karl’s unacceptable response to printing fabricated lies obtained from Republicans.

And corn production requires far more water than many other cash crops and that dry central farming region has heavily relied on irrigation to raise bumper crops of corn…until the last few years as [...]
While ranting on The Fine Print with Jeff Zeleny about the IRS ‘scandal’, Representative Michelle Bachmann presents a duh moment:
“Over and over and over, the common thread is the Obama administration was too willing to use the government to advance their agenda, their political agenda,” Bachmann tells The Fine Print.
Duh Rep. Bachmann, isn’t [...]
Yeah, not so much… The cover-up story relies on the premise that Obama administration officials pushed the idea of spontaneity in order to obscure the fact that they had missed warnings of planned terrorist attack. It’s plausible that someone was pushing that story for parochial reasons in these email exchanges. Perhaps the CIA put that [...]
Since the recession, the federal deficit has been topping One Trillion Dollars every year. But just three months ago the Congressional Budget Office predicted that the 2013 deficit would be around $845 billion…well that was then, this is now and the CBO is now projecting the 2013 deficit at $642 billion…just 4% of the gross [...]
As first reported by The Florida Nation, Pablo Pantoja, the now-former State Director of Florida Hispanic Outreach for the Republican National Committee, recently announced via email he is leaving the Republican Party because of the GOP’s “culture of intolerance.” Here’s an excerpt from Pantoja’s email.
