Why It’s Too Early To Get Excited About The Travel Ban Stay

Travel Ban

This afternoon the 9th circuit court ruled 3-o against lifting the temporary restraining order (TRO) on Donald Trump's travel ban.  Many of us fist pumped at the ruling and perhaps let out a cheer, but now is time to dig a bit deeper and look at what the future holds.  The challenge is still working its way through the court system and there is no reason to suspect that the administration will back down.

In all likelihood, even if the travel ban is struck down at the supreme court, the...

Are Skeptics, Atheists And Other Scientific Thinkers Starting To Believe In Our Own Conspiracies?

Russian Conspiracy

Is The Rational Left Building Its Own Conspiracy Theory?

Typically, atheists, skeptics, and people of science keep away from conspiracies like those popularized by Alex Jones and David Icke.  We  usually consider them foolish wastes of time and use the term conspiracy as a pejorative.  We mock the president for supporting unverified claims and ridiculous notions.  But has the Russian election hacking scandal caused us to develop our own conspiracy?

Polls suggest that the...

The Top 5 Biggest Threats To Science Under the Trump Reich.

Trump Executive Order

The Republican party has widely been considered anti-science for years, due mostly to their collective denial of climate change, large contingent of fundamental Christian Creationists, and hostility to progressive ideology.  On January, 20th, however, the country was taken over by someone far more dangerous than the average Republican party member.  Donald Trump is possibly the most explicitly anti-science president the nation has ever had.  I have already written about...

Trump Watches Infowars!! (According To Alex Jones)

Trump Watches Infowars

Alex Jones is one of my guilty pleasures.  I just can't help myself, he's basically a reverse fact-checker.  If he says something is true, you can usually be assured it isn't.  So on inauguration day I just had to see what the loon-in chief was saying about his glorious leader.  In his inauguration day broadcast we get the usual ramblings about globalism and the new world order, but he seemingly dropped a gem out of nowhere.  TRUMP WATCHES INFOWARS (3:20 in the video).  Other sources...

Steven Hayward: Calling The Race Too Soon

Steven Hayward, UC Berkeley Professor and, apparently amateur, blogger.

Oh Steven, you really are just quite the optimist aren't you?  You really thought that all of the protesting and anger would make Trump's approval rating go higher.  You see that's not quite how it works.

I know you'd like to imagine that we are all some kind of mindless drones who go out marching when the "left wing media" tells us to.  But we are the voters.  We are the majority that did not elect Trump, who...

A Late Post About Holocaust Remembrance Day, Refugees, And Skittles.

Statue of Liberty

Yesterday Donald Trump signed an executive order banning Syrian refugees and refugees from other Middle East countries.  We all know this by now.  But yesterday was also Holocaust remembrance day.  The day the world remembers the millions who lost their lives because others refused to act.  Because people went along with a regime that had no respect for human rights.

How in the living fuck did nobody at the white house have enough of a brain to realize that on HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE...
