Cruz Appoints Fiorina Vice President Of Imagination Land

27 April 2016

Major news! Ted Cruz has decided he’s going to name his pick for Vice President: Carly Fiorina. Now all he has to do is go back in time and prevent his past self from constantly losing primaries. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) intends to name former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate if he succeeds in winning the GOP nomination, multiple sources reported Wednesday.

Cruz’s move is seen as a last-minute gambit in hopes of shaking up the race and blocking front-runner Donald Trump, who easily swept five primary states across the Northeast on Tuesday.”

Ted Cruz Tries Pandering To Indiana Hoosiers Fans, Fails

27 April 2016

Ted Cruz desperately needs to win Indiana to have any chance at a brokered convention, and the nomination. He recently bungled an attempt at pandering to a crowd of Indiana Hoosiers fans. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“In what will henceforth be remembered as Ted’s Terrible Tuesday, Ted Cruz (R-Texas) bricked big in the night’s primaries and in an even more damning misstep, he completely botched a re-enactment of the timeless movie “Hoosiers” when he called a basketball hoop a “ring.”

Cruz chose to hold a rally outside Indianapolis at the gym where the iconic basketball movie was filmed. The GOP presidential candidate has touted his love of the 1986 film, which tells the inspiring tale of a small-town high school basketball coach played by Gene Hackman who leads his team to the state championship. Cruz elected to stump in Indiana instead of hanging around for a primary drubbing in five northeastern states.”

The leading contenders in both parties, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, are committed to a vast military escalation following the November election: here.

Cruz, Trump, recruiting sergeants for ISIS

This satiric video by Mark Fiore from the USA says about itself:

Thank You. Love, ISIS

12 April 2016

If we carry out police crackdowns just because people are Muslim and ratchet up the torturing in response to ISIS attacks, the terrorists have won. I know it sounds dramatic, but it’s true. These religious nutballs want nothing more than for the West to pour gasoline on the fire and drive more recruits to their apocalyptic mission. (More on my Patreon page, btw.)

Trump’s High Steaks

12 April 2016

It makes perfect sense that a few days after touting his penis size during a presidential debate, Donald J. Trump would display raw meat, wine and champagne at a press conference. Will there be a lion on a leash or bear wrestling next? Things seem to be getting a little more primeval in this campaign, at least on the Republican side. You can see more on my Patreon page.

Juan Gonzalez: Kasich May Look Like a “Moderate,” but He’s Still Dangerously Conservative

With the Republican primary in New York less than two weeks away, John Kasich met this week with the editorial board of the New York Daily News. Juan González talks about quizzing the Ohio governor about his anti-union, pro-fracking views. Juan wrote about the meeting in his latest column, “‘Moderate’ John Kasich is still dangerously conservative.”

Military Historian Agrees with Bernie Sanders: Hillary Clinton is an Unreconstructed Hawk

8 April 2016

In the Democratic presidential race, Senator Bernie Sanders has often clashed with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about U.S. policy in the Middle East. At one debate, he accused Clinton of being “too much into regime change.” We ask military historian Andrew Bacevich for his assessment.

Helping refugees from Syrian war, a crime in South Carolina, USA?

New Republican Law Targets Refugee Hosts

2 April 2016

South Carolina Republicans have turned to a pretty underhanded tactic to try to crack down on Syrian refugees receiving aid and resettling in the United States. The bill would hold sponsors of refugees responsible for any subsequent crimes committed by the refugee. John Iadarola (ThinkTank) and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“The South Carolina Senate on Thursday passed a controversial bill targeting refugees in the state, prompting concern that it may portend a wave of anti-refugee legislation around the country, particularly in the tense climate following the terrorist attacks in Brussels.

The bill, if passed by the South Carolina House and signed into law by Gov. Nikki Haley, would require refugees’ sponsors to register them in a database maintained by the state’s Department of Social Services. It would also impose strict liability on a refugee’s sponsor if the refugee, at some point in the future, commits a terrorist or criminal act.”*

Donald Trump, women and the Republican party

This video from the USA says about itself:

1 April 2016

Even with Donald Trump‘s most vitriolic and dangerous attacks on women, the GOP leadership supports him.

UltraViolet Action in the USA writes about this:

Donald Trump reached shocking new lows this week, even for him.

Possibly more shocking: the number of Republican Party leaders who say they’ll endorse him if he’s the nominee (which is highly likely).

Trump’s racist and sexist rhetoric is defining this election, and every woman voter needs to know what the 2016 GOP is all about. Check out this short video and then please share it with everyone you know.
