No rationalizations, just that income inequality is not only fine but conducive to a healthy economy.

Four charged for Facebook Live beating video

Apparently they have been charged with hate crimes, as well, as they allegedly hurled ethnic slurs at the victim while they tortured him.

And Shaun King has refused to condemn them.

Can someone explain to me why a lot of the right is fanatically
pro-israel?

Because the Jews own the banks that own the politicians amirite.

Patriotic Correctness

Some of the more annoying parts of left wing political correctness may be phased out (thankfully), but so far Trump has been shaping up to be another big government liberal.

The most monumental things he has done since being elected involve either giving select companies free handouts for keep

Why is the left blaming everything on the Russians?

Russia is a convenient scapegoat for people who throw temper tantrums when the political process doesn't yield the results they want.

This is not to say that Russia is not a real geopolitical threat with an interest in undermining democracy, since they are. But it would be a false dichotomy to s

Meanwhile in the USSA.......

The article amounts to hearsay. It's "Some unnamed source told us that an unnamed source told them that an intelligence agent working with spies who have ties to someone whose brother's girlfriend's third niece twice removed visited the kremlin on a field trip one day said..." and while I do gener

The first link is interesting, but I will reserve my judgement until an actual investigation occurs.

The second one is just hilariously bad.

Fake News Epidemic - Man Fires Rifle in Pizzeria

I don't know about "more accurate," but 85 is definitely right in implying that the primary cause for the rise of alternative media is lack of trust in mainstream media (which has been said in this thread at least twice now.)

For example, there is this fake news that has been going around for ye

Fake News Epidemic - Man Fires Rifle in Pizzeria

As pa man noted, this is mainly a symptom of partisan reporting by mainstream media. If the big 3 news networks ever stopped reporting in such a fashion that marginalizes huge portions of the population, alternative news (which will still exist even if they do) will be much less radical and people

Maddog Mattis is nominated for Secretary of Defense

Congress has to approve him. This has not happened in a long time, but Congress is also pretty unified and invigorated as far as I know. Mattis emanates conservative values and is just overall a highly qualified nomination to serve in the presidential cabinet. I don't predict his path into the c

Donald Trump on flag burning

defend this with out bringing up gun rights.

Why would I not when that is part of the answer?

For one, Hillary has been instrumental in devising much of the entire democratic platform, so many of its shortcomings can be traced back to her in some way.

Specifically, however, she supports

Donald Trump on flag burning

Towards the end of his campaign he released a list of potential SCOTUS nominations that were quite solid overall.

As far as trusting Trump, it would be a long shot to say that is the case, but as it stood, his opponent was the much greater threat to constitutional liberty, and at the end of the d

Yeah, that was pretty insane. The sooner we fill SCOTUS up with constitutional conservatives the sooner Trump's vendetta against Freedom of Speech can cease to be such a liability (or so I'm hoping...)

President Elect: Millions voted illegally

the fact that he's surrounding himself with a collection of far right figures and his rich children show that he will almost undoubtedly be detached from reality.

Basically. I was all for the idea of Trump teaming up with his former enemies (IE: Cruz, Romney) in hopes that they would attempt

President Elect: Millions voted illegally

When he actually takes the oath of office I imagine he will become much more presidential under the prospect of impeachment. He is just exercising his first amendment rights while he still has them.

President Elect: Millions voted illegally

He probably is listening to Steve Bannon too closely, as various alt right news publications are publishing a statistic of "3 million illegal immigrants" voting in this election, with every road leading back to a single tweet posted on behalf of some anti-fraud institution which refuses to publish i

Cuba's Former President Fidel Castro dead at 90

There is no excuse for torturing political dissidents and no one should have to fawn over Fidel Castro because the US has also done bad things. This is the geopolitical equivalent of telling someone to check their privilege and it doesn't stop them from being right here either.

Cuba's Former President Fidel Castro dead at 90

Communist rule was already coming to a close in the final year of his life. Cuba was having trouble producing food because large scale agricultural efforts required more work than the people were willing to do. Obama went to Cuba so that the Castros could petition for the US to bring its capitalis
