Cancer in Chief

In other news, Team Cruz is reportedly trying to gain control of the GOP's convention platform committee so they can put things like bathroom bills on it.

Meanwhile, Alabama's right wing Chief Justice Roy Moore has been suspended from duty for... being an activist judge who legislates from the bench. Imagine that!

This is the second time Moore has faced such charges. In 2003, the Court of the Judiciary removed Moore from office after he installed a washing machine-sized monument of the Ten Commandments in the state judicial building in Montgomery. Moore refused a federal court order to remove the monument, leading to his removal from the state's highest court.

Finally, the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the Urban Institute Health Policy Center say Bernie Sanders' economic plans would create so much debt ($18 trillion) it would actually damage the economy by raising interest rates and increasing government borrowing costs.

  • It’s about damn time they suspended Moore. He’s been shitting on the Constitution for quite some time now. Hopefully they’ll yank his ass permanently this time.

    And yet oddly, I attended a seminar last week in DC where a group of economists advised that Sander’s economic plan was far more desirable and worthy of consideration than Trump’s or Clinton’s, so this is definitely not written in stone in the that community. Not surprising though at how anything related to Sanders is presented here since pretty much every time Sanders is mentioned on this website, it is solely to be bashed while acting like Hillary Clinton is some sort of God-like being incapable of fault.

    Thanks for the article regarding Bernie’s economic plans. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad he is running but the ‘Bernie or bust’ nuts are getting as annoying as the Greenwald and Snowden zealots.
    I truly hope he starts to pivot soon because the delegate math doesn’t work and his followers are displaying a purist nonsense that will have them wasting their vote or staying home.
