Martine Shkreli, the 'pharma bro' who made news this summer when his company bought the rights to a life saving medication and raised the price from $13 to $750 per pill was arrested this morning for federal securities fraud, stemming from an unrelated business. Now if we could just arrest him for price gouging the most vulnerable, but that would require a law and our Republican Congress has shown they don't care about the people, especially the vulnerable. 


Leave it to the right's most cherished and vile online news source to make the holiday's biggest shopping year about race.

Out of 3 million Syrian refugees we now have a case of 1 being a terrorist. Out of 100 million gun owners in America, this year alone 325 have committed mass shootings. When you do the math, an America gun owner is almost 10 times more likely to commit a mass shooting than a refugee is of being a terrorist. Are we really concerned about safety?

Donald Trump waded into the Starbucks non-controversy over their holiday cups yesterday, saying "maybe we should boycott". All that total silliness aside, he said something else that was really troubling.  "If I become president, we're all going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' again. That I can tell you. That I can tell you!" Trump told the crowd. Last I checked Christmas was a Christian holiday and our government is forbidden from establishment of religion under the First Amendment of our Constitution. So basically Trump has just said that he won't defend the Constitution of the United States, violating an oath of office before even having a chance to take it. Hopefully he will get pressed on that tonight during the debate, but being Fox Business, I highly doubt it. 

Ben Carson's Caught In Biggest Lie Yet

Lie after lie after lie. Ben Carson has turned into a total fabrication. Could this latest one end his campaign?

Trump Falls Nationally

Donald Trump has enjoyed the top spot nationally for the past three months. Today that changes in a new CBS/NYTimes poll.

Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama told a radio host this week he would impeach Hillary Clinton on day 1, a claim she has called "pathetic." But here's the thing. The Constitution states that impeachment can only incur if "high crimes or misdemeanors" are committed. So Mo Brooks is saying that the Democratic front runner has committed some sort of crime. Under law, when you know a crime is being/has been committed you are required to report it. Has Mo Brooks reported this alleged crime? If not, then perhaps he should be investigated by law enforcement for a failure to report. 

Well I guess he isn't such a "money maker". News just broke that he is doing drastic salary cuts for his campaign across the board. I think two words best describe this, "last throes". 

Every single time a Republican brings up a diplomatic/embassy attack from previous years, it's always one from the 90's, while Bill Clinton was President. It's as though no embassy or diplomatic station has ever been attacked during a Republican Presidency. Of course that chart above paints a different story...

Bernie is the one going up in the polls. Honestly, this is no shocker. Everyone knows Hillary and that means her support has pretty much hit the ceiling in terms of the primary. Short of a colossal explosion on the debate stage, Bernie was bound to go up, as he's selling himself to a lot of people who really don't know him, but know Hillary enough that they wanted to wait and weigh their options.
