    The Tea Partyer was secretly recorded bashing Romney as the worst GOP presidential candidate on Earth.When Tea Party firebrand and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz lashed out Mitt Romney yesterday for daring to condemn his over-the-top charge that the Obama administration had become the world’s leading state sponsor of terror by negotiating a nuclear nonproliferation deal with Iran, it was hardly the first time the Texas senator has attacked his party’s 2012 presidential nominee. According to a new report in the National Journal, during a private speech back in May to the Council for National Policy, a secretive group of...

    People who insist that climate change isnít happening often try to disprove it by pointing to what they see as contradictory phenomena. One of their most visually compelling arguments has centered upon Antarctic sea ice, which expanded to reach record levels in 2014. If the planet really is warming, they ask, then shouldnít the ice in the southern ocean be melting? But now, in a new, not-yet-published paper, James Hansen, former director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and colleagues push back even harder. They argue that the increase in Antarctic sea ice not only doesnít refute climate...

    MADISON (AP) -- Newly released documents show Gov. Scott Walker's office was involved in drafting legislation to overhaul Wisconsin's open records law and keep some government materials secret. Republicans on the Legislature's budget committee passed a measure earlier this month that would have shielded many documents created by state government officials from the open records law, including drafts of legislation and staff communications. Republicans quickly backed off after a fierce backlash from outraged lawmakers from both parties and open government advocates.

    If there's a small silver lining for the Republican Party in the bonanza of insanity that is Donald Trump's candidacy, it's this: He's single-handedly managed to make the rest of the GOP field look downright reasonable by comparison. There's less talk of a "clown car" primary when the main attraction is the ringmaster of his own circus. Each day, Trump seems to reach new heights of absurdity, offensiveness, and popularity among Republican poll respondents. On Tuesday, he called fellow candidate Lindsey Graham an "idiot" and handed out the South Carolina senator's cellphone number ó a response to Graham referring to...

    All the negative press Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing lately is the result of a national press out to get him and "not looking out" for the American public. That's according to Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly. On his show Tuesday, O'Reilly said Trump is getting a raw deal from the national press because he isn't "cowering before them." "He has no fear," said O'Reilly, who has been known to attend sporting events with Trump. "He could not care less about censoring himself and the press does not intimidate him. So because of that approach, the media believe...

    The king of talk radio could take out Trump if he wanted to, so why wonít he sack up and do it?The New York Times recently ran a piece titled, Rush Limbaugh Rallies Listeners to Donald Trumpís Defense. In reading Rushís full transcript, I found that headline a bit unfair. On Monday, he did cite ex-CBS reporter Sharyl Attkissonís defense of Trumpówhich I (and others) found to be unpersuasive. But his comments were far more nuanced than the Timesí headline suggested. Apparently Limbaugh felt that way, too. ďBecause I donít join in the condemnation of Trump,Ē he explained on Tuesday,...

    It's the morning of Friday, January 20, 2017, and it's Inauguration Day. Donald John Trump Sr. has his hand on a Bible, and America looks on, agape, as he swears to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." How we got to this point isn't important. The question now is, what the [expletive] is about to happen? To come up with even the vaguest answer, we have to look back at history. Because as British TV science guy James Burke once said, "Why should we look to the past in order to prepare for the future? Because...
