The New Ferguson Videos Are The Emergence of Alternative Logic

The New Ferguson Videos Are The Emergence of Alternative Logic

The Ferguson riots happened so long ago that at the time of the shooting, Hillary Clinton was the assumed future president and Donald Trump was on the Celebrity Apprentice trying to figure out if Kevin Jonas or Kate Gosselin was better at selling pies. Despite the passing of two and a half years, most Americans have not changed their minds since day one – no matter what evidence emerged from the investigations. Many are still shouting “hands up, don’t shoot!”, even though Obama’s own justice department concluded that Brown did not…

The Washington Post’s Amazing Alternative Facts About Immigrants Returning to Mexico

The Washington Post’s Amazing Alternative Facts About Immigrants Returning to Mexico

After Trump’s election, it was fun to watch everyone switch issue positions as if political parties were a yoga class. Republicans suddenly became enamored with executive orders. Democrats realized that they love the CIA and want to start a cold war with Russia. There have been more flip flops in 2017 than you’d find at a frat house cookout, yet this recent Washington Post article on deportation still managed to stand out among the crowd. After years of praising illegal immigration and citing bogus economic studies which went through acrobatic contortions to conclude that…

Trump Had No Choice But To Skip The Correspondents Dinner

Trump Had No Choice But To Skip The Correspondents Dinner

Trump announced this week that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, making him the first president to miss the event since Ronald Reagan in 1981. Reagan missed the event because someone had tried to assassinate him, while Trump is missing it because both he and the press are asses. Trump and the media need to get on better terms. It’s not professional for him to ban top news organizations from White House press briefings, and it’s not professional for news organizations to let their reporters break huge…

#OscarsSoWhite Didn’t Work, It’s Supporters Just Don’t Understand Statistics

#OscarsSoWhite Didn’t Work, It’s Supporters Just Don’t Understand Statistics

The 89th Academy Awards will take place this Sunday. The Oscars are a celebration where good looking, millionaire celebrities finally have a platform to reach a large audience – which they will undoubtedly use to call the president a racist. Instead of a fashion pre-show where the host asks, “Who are you wearing?!,” Rachel Maddow should cover the red carpet and shout out, “What Trump insult are you using?!” Calvin Klein and Oscar de la Renta would be replaced with responses like “Trump’s a bigot!” and “We’re living under a fascist regime!” The Oscars,…

Both Trump and the Media Are Liars. But When The Media Lies, It’s Dangerous.

Both Trump and the Media Are Liars. But When The Media Lies, It’s Dangerous.

Alternative facts are everywhere. Each interview between the White House and the mainstream media devolves into a shouting match over who lied about what, as if they were an old married couple fighting over a dryer lint trap. But the problem is that the Trump administration and the media are not an old married couple, they are institutions who have worked together for a grand total of three weeks – yet both have lied so much that Pinocchio’s nose is so long you could chop it down and use the wood to build…

Political Correctness Ruined Super Bowl Commercials

Political Correctness Ruined Super Bowl Commercials

Super Bowl 51 was amazing. The Patriots came back in dramatic fashion. Roger Goodell had to hand Brady the trophy after he railroaded the Pats for allegedly deflating footballs, but acted like they released chemical weapons in Syria – then ignored it completely when another team was accused of the exact same crime. Lady Gaga was also great. Everyone expected her to stop in the middle of her performance and start doing a Ted Talk where transgender Syrians threw kale at the heads of white men watching Nascar, but she thankfully kept politics out…

Executive Disorder: Trump’s Immigration Chaos Will Have Lasting Damage On His Presidency

Executive Disorder: Trump’s Immigration Chaos Will Have Lasting Damage On His Presidency

On Friday, Donald Trump signed an executive order banning travel for nationals from seven Muslim majority countries. The order conveniently left out several countries that Trump did business with, including Saudi Arabia, which always seems to come out unscathed despite being the primary support behind 9/11. At this point, Saudi Arabia is like one of the guests at Westworld, doing damage just for fun, knowing that it is invincible and  that other countries will be the ones to feel the effect of its malfeasance. Saudi Arabia could set the White House on…

Obama Was Switched Out For Trump, But Be Careful Not To Change Yourself

Obama Was Switched Out For Trump, But Be Careful Not To Change Yourself

On January 20th, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, and the first president to have appeared multiple times on WrestleMania. Trump gave an inaugural address with a theme of “America First,” which proved surprisingly controversial given that he was elected president of America. If he was elected president of Senegal and gave a speech preaching “America First,” I could see people getting upset. But when MSNBC says his speech had a “Hitlerian background,” it makes you think Trump could have read aloud from Green Eggs…

Handing Out Election Oscars

Handing Out Election Oscars

After this past Sunday’s Golden Globes and subsequent Golden Globes backlash, it seems like a good time to hand out our own awards for performances in the 2016 Election. Because really, no movie can compete with this past year’s political cycle. Manchester By The Sea was not as depressing, La La Land was not dreamier, Hacksaw Ridge did not have as much action, Florence Foster Jenkins did not have a woman as deluded, and Deadpool did not have a man as big of a jackass than what we just experienced…

It’s Good That California Farmers Are Buying Machines To Replace Migrant Workers

It’s Good That California Farmers Are Buying Machines To Replace Migrant Workers

A California farmer, worried that Trump will crack down on illegal immigration, reportedly invested more than $600,000 in machinery in order to mitigate the uncertainty around his illegal labor supply. Another farmer said that he purchased three new almond sweepers to cope with both Trump’s election as well as new regulations granting farm laborers overtime. Because of the anticipated increase in costs, farmers are outraged and are “calling on congressional representatives to educate the president-elect on the workforce it takes to feed the country.” But this rhetoric is all nonsense. Trump’s threats, as well…
