Who’s Tom Steyer?

If you don’t know Tom Steyer and his brother are the liberal equivalent of the Koch brothers, but of course since they’re liberal other liberals, including Democrats in office and media lackeys, have no problem with Tom Steyer and his big money, his corporate interests, and his politics, unlike what they have with, say, the […]

Putin’s Apologists

I had no idea such a ridiculous movement of Russian apologists had reformed, but I suppose Vladimir Putin has his “useful idiots” as much as Stalin or Lenin did.
