    Trump attt: SMEARING his sexual assault accusers is 'covered under political speech'

    Imagine for a NY nanosecond if Clinton had tried that approach. I'd like to think RawStory got this one from the ONION. But looks like they actually said it. Gee, perhaps Harvey Weinstein should have run for the Presidency. (In case you have forgotten, there is at least one sexual assault...

    Democ'y will be toast, political scientists sound the US authoritarianism ALARMS

    I'm highlighting the scariest line! Money for the top, PROPAGANDA for the rest (the top feeding it to them to keep them in line and so they can feel superior about themselves since they won't have SHIT). Most distressing, writes Illing, is that none of the political scientists at the event...

    FEMA chief on San Juan mayor: We 'filter' out political noise.

    this administration is becoming more and more like a dictatorship everyday. Could you imagine what the uproar would have been if any other administration official talked like this under these circumstances. Granted, they may think it's political noise. But, this Mayor is only doing what she...

    The MSM should stop broadcasting Trump's political rallies

    .... or anything that smells like one. Freedom of the press also means the freedom to not be used by tyrants to spread lies and propaganda. Who decides what to cover?....the free press.
