Womp womp.

Russian 'Birth Tourists' Become Yet Another Trump Revenue Stream


Cynthia McFadden and Katie Tur talk about a mini-baby boom in Florida, thanks to foreign women who have enough disposable income to stay in America until their children are born. McFadden said **most of the medical tourists are from China and Russia**.

Trump has an open borders for anchor babies policy for his buddies. If you weren’t in on the con then you were the mark.

Franklin Graham Backs Trump's Job Plan Because There's No 'Pride' In Computer Programming

Franklin Graham Backs Trump's Job Plan Because There's No 'Pride' In Computer Programming:

I keep hearing how liberals are smug and dismissive unlike real Americans from the heartland.

There is a lot of pride in programming. You get to solve interesting problems. You spend more time interacting with your customers than most manufactures would. Systems I worked on have been mentioned in the press.

Kellyanne Conway Gets Flustered Refusing To Answer Whether Trump's Voter Fraud Tweet Was True

Kellyanne Conway Gets Flustered Refusing To Answer Whether Trump's Voter Fraud Tweet Was True:

George replied, “There is no evidence that there were millions of illegal votes, zero.”

Conway continued to whine about the media and legal recounts that are being conducted and cried, “Why can’t you allow this President-elect to form his government the way that President Obama and Secretary Clinton had suggested they would like him to do?”

wow.

CNN Host's Mind Blown: Trump Voters Believe Voter Fraud Claims

CNN Host's Mind Blown: Trump Voters Believe Voter Fraud Claims:

in this case it comes with one minor caveat: evidence is not needed if you’re a Trump voter. Period. Alysin Camerota of CNN’s New Day is a bit flummoxed over a group of these folks.

It’s no use asking for proof. They don’t have proof and their opinions on voter fraud as based on feelings, not facts.

Worth watching.

Lindsey Graham: Iraq And Syria ‘Coming Here’ To U.S. Mainland If Obama Doesn’t Go To War

Lindsey Graham: Iraq And Syria ‘Coming Here’ To U.S. Mainland If Obama Doesn’t Go To War:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned on Sunday that militants in Iraq and Syria would attack the U.S. mainland if President Barack Obama did not immediately take military action to stop them.

I guess we can assume that all those Republicans that called on Obama to attack ISIS will now rally around the president? Probably not.

George Will Shocks Fox News Panel: Tell Child Refugees 'Welcome To America'

George Will Shocks Fox News Panel: Tell Child Refugees 'Welcome To America':

"We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school, and get a job, and become American,’" Will suggested. "We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county."

Will explained. “We’ve handled what [American poet] Emma Lazarus called the ‘wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ a long time ago, and a lot more people than this.”

I don’t alway agree with him, but he is right here. The idea that there exists some subset of people who can not become American is contrary to all the historical evidence. Those kids will make it.

Promoting Evolution Is 'An Act Of Disloyalty To America'

Promoting Evolution Is 'An Act Of Disloyalty To America':

"American political philosophy is based on the belief that the world was created by God in six days, and that this creation event occurred about 6,000 years ago," he explains, adding that news reports describing the Earth as millions of years old were either ignorant or "anti-American."

Where is genesis mentioned in the constitution?

Wallace to Issa: 'Be honest, you do not have any evidence' linking Clinton to Benghazi

Wallace to Issa: 'Be honest, you do not have any evidence' linking Clinton to Benghazi:

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday confronted Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) after he was rated as having the “highest level of falsehood” for his obsession with the terrorist attacks in Benghazi.

I am still waiting on those who bought the fanciful theories that the right was selling to admit they were wrong.

Is Dr. Ben Carson unaware how women seeking abortions got pregnant?

Is Dr. Ben Carson unaware how women seeking abortions got pregnant?:

Newly hired Fox News contributor Dr. Ben Carson proposed on Friday to “re-educate the women” so that they would stop having abortions. 

He added there was obviously not a “war on women” because men give up their seats to pregnant women.

Giving women a seat _voluntarily_ somehow trumps government actions that deny women autonomy over their bodies? This guy is nuts. 

Intro to the Structure of Lies in Conservative Jurisprudence

Intro to the Structure of Lies in Conservative Jurisprudence

Scalia wasn’t just being hypocritical. He was, quite blatantly, lying. If he actually believed what he claimed to believe in Windsor, then he never would have joined the decision to strike down the Voting Rights Act in Holder. To the contrary, he would have denounced John Roberts’ opinion with venomous glee. To absolutely no one’s surprise, he did not. Because everybody knows he was lying in his Windsor dissent. Everybody knows he’s been lying for decades.

The whole five part series is worth a read. The conservative movement is basically founded on this kind of BS.

Colbert Mocks Tea Partiers For Whining About Tax-Exempt Status They Didn't Have to Ask For

Colbert Mocks Tea Partiers For Whining About Tax-Exempt Status They Didn't Have to Ask For

"How is that possible, that I didn't apply?" Colbert asked. "Am I breaking the law?" Potter took that opportunity to remind the Colbert Report host that he was not legally obligated to apply for tax-exempt status in the first place.

Amazing. The IRS blocked them from something that they were not obligated to do in the first place.

The Latest Lie: IRS Targeted Conservatives

The Latest Lie: IRS Targeted Conservatives

All that happened here is that groups applying to the IRS for special tax status were checked to see if they were engaged in political activity. They were checked, not targeted. Only one-third of the groups checked were conservative groups.

Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That's shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at

Yet another trumped up nonsense scandal diverting from actual problems like the AP scandal and the Gitmo hunger strike.

Huckabee suggested that without Fox News acting as a counterweight to "mainstream media," most Americans "will assume that Obama really is just doing a great job and he just can't get those crazy Republicans to help him out.

Paul Ryan Claims His Budget 'Preempts Austerity'

Paul Ryan Claims His Budget 'Preempts Austerity'

House Budget Commitee chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) says that his plan to slash government spending on programs for the poor while increasing defense spending and giving tax cuts to the wealthy would actually “prevent austerity.”

We must pass austerity to prevent austerity? Not from the onion. Ryan is a smooth talking confidence man. Nothing more.

Rick Santorum Rejects Catholic Church Teaching on Evolution

Rick Santorum Rejects Catholic Church Teaching on Evolution

I’m a little weary of Rick Santorum prancing around as the “Catholic candidate” when he stands in direct opposition to the Church on a whole host of issues, including torture, the death penalty, pre-emptive war, the welfare state and global warming — just to name a few.

In a nutshell, he only agrees with the church when it comes to gays being icky and women being unable to control their sexuality without the paternal influence of men.

In the last two years, according to the U.S. Justice Department, allegations of wrongdoing by police departments across the country have mushroomed to unprecedented levels. According to Thomas Perez, the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, at least 17 U.S. police departments are under investigation

You have a Republican ideology, which Mitt Romney obviously doesn't believe in. He just oozes insincerity, that's just so obvious. But all of the others are fools and clowns. And there is a question here, my hypothesis is that maybe this is an ideology that only fools and clowns can believe in. And that's the Republican problem.

Koch Head Conservative Filmmaker Hands Out Bongs At #OWS

Koch Head Conservative Filmmaker Hands Out Bongs At #OWS

"It’s ironic to me to watch someone claim to be standing for constitutional rights and liberty, a la Cato/Koch and yet sneer at the people out protesting, exercising their right of assembly and speech. Maloney is predictably conservative: ready to defend the rights of conservatives, and everyone else be damned. Oh, and if he can set them up to look like perennially-high, dope-smoking hippies? Even better"

Not surprised about this. This is classic hippie-punching.
