Elizabeth Warren Goes There on Impeaching Trump Elizabeth Warren Goes There on Impeaching Trump

What is there left to say about the Mueller Report? Depending on who you are, a LOT. But so far, plenty of it has also been incredibly bad. So this response from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is currently running for president, was a breath of fresh air:

The Only Acceptable Pets Are Cats and Dogs The Only Acceptable Pets Are Cats and Dogs

The human race fulfills an evolutionary niche unlike any other creature in the observed universe. We sit at the top of every conceivable food chain and all other organisms are beneath us.

Kamala Harris Cops Out Kamala Harris Cops Out

When Sen. Kamala Harris was attorney general of California, she championed a law that made it legal to prosecute parents of truant children.

Fravid Dum Fravid Dum

David Frum, the former Bush speechwriter who now has a cushy gig writing proto-fascist shitposts for the Atlantic, does not like Rep. Ilhan Omar. Bret Stephens, the climate change denier who now has a cushy gig writing proto-fascist shitposts for the New York Times, also does not like the Somali refugee-turned-elected…

When You Think About It Star Wars Episode IX Is About Politics, Specifically Nepotism When You Think About It Star Wars Episode IX Is About Politics, Specifically Nepotism

In Star Wars, there’s a lot of politics. In the prequel trilogy many of the plot points revolve around a labor hostile trade organization and a Galactic “Senate,” two things that we here at Splinter know are objectively bad. But the most recent trilogy, which will conclude this winter with Episode IX: The Rise of…

Eric and Lara Trump: DEEP STATE REAL Eric and Lara Trump: DEEP STATE REAL

Where were you when you realized the Deep State—that murky apparatus Donald Trump believes has been trying to sink him since day one—was real?

Bernie Is Back With a New (and Better) Medicare for All Bill Bernie Is Back With a New (and Better) Medicare for All Bill

Sen. Bernie Sanders will introduce a new version of his Medicare for All bill in the Senate today in a renewed push for his key proposal during the 2016 presidential campaign.

It’s easy to forget, in the age of massive Trump rallies and QAnon cops and Rep. Matt Gaetz, that Florida is a purple state. And voters there may not take kindly to the Trump administration reportedly considering plans to auction off areas of the state’s Gulf Coast waters to the oil and gas industry for drilling, a…

Trump Apparently Casually Told Border Agents to Just Go Ahead and Stop Letting People In Trump Apparently Casually Told Border Agents to Just Go Ahead and Stop Letting People In

Mike Gravel Launches Only Fun 2020 Campaign to Date Mike Gravel Launches Only Fun 2020 Campaign to Date

Former Sen. Mike Gravel’s presidential campaign, currently, is like no other in the race. Gravel, an 88-year-old who now lives in California, has no plans to actually become president, and instead wants only one thing: to gain admittance into the 2020 Democratic Primary debates so he can shout at every other candidate…

A Good Way to Fight the Gun Lobby A Good Way to Fight the Gun Lobby

For decades, an incredibly powerful network of lawyers, businessmen, and politicians have aggressively gamed every facet of the legal system to sell as many guns in this country as possible.
