Gov. Nathan Deal handed his critics a huge gift after he made a statement that a Hispanic student attending a forum on immigration at the University of Georgia was an illegal immigrant, WGCL-TV reports.

Dinesh D’Souza Compares Ferguson Protesters to ISIS Extremists

Can’t recall hearing that any of the Ferguson protesters beheaded anyone, of even abducted women and children. Here’s more from Buzzfeed: “The common thread between ISIS and what’s going in Ferguson is you have these people who basically believe that to correct a perceived injustice, it’s perfectly okay to...

Rep. Steve King: Racial Profiling Not Factor in Ferguson Protests, All of Continental Origin

Rep. Steve King proved once again why he is a raving lunatic. He was asked by Newsmax TV if the Congressional Black Caucus should investigate what’s occurring in Ferguson over the murder of unarmed black teen Michael Brown and he said it’s not necessary because they are all black. Huh? “This idea of no racial profiling,” King said, “I’ve seen the video. It looks to me like you don’t need to bother with that particular...

Sarah Palin Launches Web TV Network That’s Pricier Than Netflix

Half-term Alaska governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is taking her sideshow to the web with a focus on American politics via her own network, The Sarah Palin Channel.  Um, this is too funny. The Sarah Palin Channel is a Glenn Beck knock-off.  Palin took to Twitter to peddle for prospective viewers. Only one problem….Netflix is cheaper. You know, I swore off writing about Sarah Palin, but this was too good...

New Surveillance Whistleblower John Tye Says NSA Violating U.S. Constitution

Move over Edward Snowden, there’s a new surveillance whistleblower on the scene. His name is John Napier Tye and he’s warning Americans about illegal spying. John Tye claims he filed a complaint with the State Department before leaving. In other words, he’s no leaker like Edward Snowden. Tye, a former State Department official who served in the Obama administration from 2011 to 2014, said that ongoing surveillance...

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is looking more and more like a possible Democratic presidential candidate and he’s putting some distance between himself and President Obama, particularly on the border crisis and the undocumented children streaming across the borders. Watch out Hillary, maybe the nomination isn’t yours for the taking. O’Malley believes these children, or “refugees” as he calls them,...

John Boehner to Sue President Obama Over Unilaterally Delaying Employer Mandate

The GOP clown car just keeps on rolling….Just when you think Congressional Republicans couldn’t sink any lower with their obstructionist tactics, House Speaker John Boehner just outdid himself. He now plans to sue President Obama for not imposing the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act fast enough. Yes, fast enough. But wait, didn’t we have a government shutdown led by Teabagger Sen. Ted Cruz over defunding...

Russian President Putin Congratulates President Obama on Independence Day

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated President Obama on Independence Day and called for the ties between both countries to continue to develop on a “pragmatic and equal basis.” Seems to me Putin stuck his finger in America’s eye by granting NSA leaker Edward Snowden temporary asylum and thumbing his nose when he invaded the Crimean region. In his message of congratulations, Mr Putin said that he hopes that...

GOP FAIL: ‘Imperial President’ Obama Remains Defiant on Executive Orders

President Obama is calling the bluff of the Republican Party, most notably Mr. Do Nothing, House Speaker John Boehner’s threatened lawsuit. Well, guess who can’t stand it? The Republicans. They are still pushing the “imperial presidency” line because Obama said if the Congress won’t work with him, he’ll go it alone. Um, I wonder how long will it take for them to realize they aren’t dealing...

The Cheneys painted a picture of gloom and doom from the start of their op-ed:  “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so...

Is The Right Wing Trying to Make Thomas Alfred Taylor Hillary Clinton’s Willie Horton?

The right wing has dug up some tapes of Hillary Clinton talking about representing accused child rapist Thomas Alfred Taylor. This is akin to the Tony Rezko case they tried to smear Barack Obama with during the 2008 presidential campaign or even his former pastor Jeremiah Wright. Remember how the Republicans smeared Mike Dukakis with Willie Horton? I wish the Republican Party would spend some time telling us how they would make life...
