Walter Rhett: Ukraine: No Rules, No Foul
The real story in Ukraine is what happens when somebody doesn’t play by the rules. It is one of the great examples of conflict resolution unresolved. It is frothed with personalities and political interests, historic sleights and economic targets, military force, diplomacy and big money rolled into a global storm. It’s also an old-fashioned tale. So far, without terrorism.

Jeff Rosenzweig: Stormy Monday, 3/3/14
Already a month overdue, the President’s budget proposal is expected to drop Tuesday. Various House committees are already poised to posture, pontificate and proclaim their dismay, disgust and dudgeon, or – as it’s known in Washington – hold hearings.

Walter Rhett: Is Arizona the New Mississippi?
Rape. Sexual violence. Guns. Denial of health care. Food stamps. Religious liberty. Gays. Immigrants. Jobs. Deficits. Defense. Is Arizona the new Mississippi?

Jeff Rosenzweig: Stormy Monday, 2/24/14
House Republicans return to Washington this week, and among a host of very bad things, will attempt to expedite the ALERRT Act. While it might sound like yet another example of famously bad rightwing spelling, “ALERRT” is an acronym for “Achieving Less Excess in Regulation and Requiring Transparency,” which means the bill is actually just another example of famously bad rightwing ideas.

Sandy Todd: Climate Change Is A Hoax? It’s FALSE NEWS!
There’s never a shortage of false news on the climate change front. This week is no exception with the climate deniers flooding the airwaves to counteract Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama as they seek to jumpstart the global discussion on climate change.

Walter Rhett: Self-Defense: An Outlet for Violence and Murder?
Is it a delusion or a lie? A mistaken identity under stress and unreliable circumstances, or a catch-all fix, a safety outlet for violence and murder? The “I-thought-I-saw” defense?

Jeff Rosenzweig: Stormy Monday, 2/17/14
Mere days after Republican capitulation on the debt ceiling, scientists don’t yet know whether the violent disruption of the space-time continuum will be temporary or permanent. Congressional Republicans aren’t waiting on a verdict, of course, since they’re already working on other ways to ensure that the government does very little actual, you know, governing. Plus they hate science anyway.

Sandy Todd: Obamacare Destroying 2 Million Jobs?!? It’s FALSE NEWS!
Most have heard by now of the earth-shattering release of the OMB report on the Affordable Care Act and its devastating announcement of a loss of 2 million American jobs. You’ve probably also heard the White House response led by Jay Carney, and his now infamous remark that seems to indicate people should have no problem with not working and getting free Medicaid, if they want to. But here are a few details you might not have heard.

Sandy Todd: Health Insurance Downgrade? It’s FALSE NEWS!
An insurance company downgrade is such a serious act that it can, and does, alter the entire financial health of a company. It can easily send it into a downward tailspin. That’s why the recent news of the downgrade of the entire insurance industry was especially shocking and worrisome. When Moody’s, a leader in the analysis of capital markets, makes a credit rating, as the saying goes, people listen. And in the case of the right wing scream machine, they make sure everyone in America listens too. Unfortunately, they too often get it wrong, as Fox News, The Hill and others did in the case of the non-existent downgrade.

Jeff Rosenzweig: Stormy Monday, 2/3/14
For what it’s worth, Punxsutawney Phil’s outrageous prediction of six more weeks of this vile winter ensures that Broncos fans aren’t the only people shocked and saddened this week. It would cheer me up greatly if the Administration responded this week to the 242,995 signatories on a White House petition to revoke Justin Bieber’s green card and ship the insufferable little brat back over the Peace Bridge. Sadly, Press Secretary Jay Carney would go no further than saying an official response will be issued “relatively soon.” Stay tuned, and keep the signatures coming.
