News Summary
Cutting thru the Propaganda
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups. 

Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!
Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans? 

It can only be

Dishonest Republican
Claims of Media Bias
As a political party, the Republicans have become "post-policy," meaning that since their only real agenda is increasing the wealth of their donors through tax cuts and corporate deregulation, they must appeal to middle class voters through dishonest propaganda and pandering. One of the most egregious practitioners of this sleazy tactic is Texas Senator Ted Cruz. A Politifact analysis of 47 policy statements made by Ted Cruz found that only one was unambiguously true -- and it concerned toilet seats.  As former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg noted, ""You've got a guy like Ted Cruz -- who I think (Alan) Dershowitz said was the smartest law student he ever had -- and he says some of the stupidest things I've ever heard, The only explanation -- the only explanation -- is he doesn't believe it; he's just saying it." In response to Bloomberg's criticism, Cruz campaign spokesman Rick Tyler characterized the former mayor as a "myopic" elitist, adding, "Most of what Ted Cruz says is simple common sense." Common sense? Only to know-nothings and rubes. Cruz lies compulsively and habitually because he has no respect for the intelligence of his audience and he understands that the corporate media will never challenge him on his lies out of fear of being charged with "liberal bias." Luckily for America, Cruz is so repulsively smarmy that it's doubtful he could ever achieve popularity outside of the fever swamps of Republican primary politics.  MORE   MORE   MORE
