Walker Backtracks on the Canadian Wall

So here’s Scott Walker with Chuck Todd on Sunday’s Meet the Press (with my emphasis): Chuck: We are talking about the southern border and building a fence there. We don’t talk about the northern border, where this is about securing the border from potential terrorists coming over. – Read the full article

Because They’re Just That Dumb

Do RWNJs get dumber on the phone?  Check out these polling stats from ThinkProgress (with my emphasis): Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), was born in Calgary, Alberta in Canada in 1970, according to the birth certificate he released two years ago. But a Public Policy Polling poll released on Monday found that 40 percent of Republican voters falsely believe Cruz was born in the United States — compared to just 29 percent who believe the same of Hawaiian-born Barack Obama. – Read the full article

Could Trump Bring Down Fox?

Its on! The Trump versus Fox News feud reached incredible new levels today as Fox “circled the wagons” in defense of Megyn Kelly. Trump refused to back down, which Frank Luntz learned (to his shock and dismay) is the main appeal of Trump to his supporters. – Read the full article

Another Hole in Rafael Cruz’s Bio

Here at ATD we’ve documented the absurdity of “Pastor” Rafael Cruz’s embellished bio. Now a new fact has come to light that contradicts his slaving away as a dishwasher to put himself through college narrative. In his defense, Mr. Cruz probably didn’t realize that many newspapers have preserved their early editions on microfilm; but we’ve stumbled across one such page just recently. – Read the full article

Rational Thought on the Clinton Email “Scandal”

Not that it matters to RWNJs because they’re in perpetual pounce mode (exceptions: Trump, Walker, Bush), but I ran across this comment at a Game of Thrones forum (of all places) that does a good job of explaining where rational people are on Hillary’s so-called “email scandal”. – Read the full article

The Real Cost of Trump’s Immigration Policy

Donald Trump, on the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants: Deport all of those who are, you know, bleeding from wherever. Ok, that quote’s made-up. Here’s his real quote: We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go. They have to go … we either have a country, or we don’t have a country. – Read the full article

The Not-So-“Evangelical” Embrace Trump

Surprise! “Evangelicals” are just plain old Republicans masquerading as Christians, and my friends, it seems the, ahem,  “Godly” are embracing Donald Trump’s candidacy. Pastor Jeremiah Johnson had this to say: “The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, ‘Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. – Read the full article
