Former Senator Harry Reid: Lockheed has crashed UFO debris but the Pentagon wouldn't let him see

In the New Yorker, Gideon Lewis-Kraus dives deeply into the US government's slow-but-sure acknowledgement of UFOs. Of course, just because a flying object is unidentified does not mean it's a flying saucer piloted by an extraterrestrial. (It doesn't mean it's *NOT* piloted by an ET either.) — Read the rest

How a 60-vote threshold in the Senate threatens to slam the brakes on much of Biden's legislative agenda

Drew Angerer/Getty Images A 19th-century Senate tactic known as the filibuster threatens to pose major hurdles for President Joe Biden as he tries to get his agenda off the ground. Democrats are poised to pass coronavirus relief with a majority vote if bipartisan talks fall through, but other parts of their agenda cannot pass via reconciliation. The odds of filibuster reform appear slim for now as a few moderate Democrats have come out against it. Visit Business Insider's homepage for mor...

The Long History of Right-Wing Terrorism in America

One of the critical things that Luke Mogelson’s must-read piece about the Jan 6th assault on Congress does is define the attack as the latest in a string of right-wing militant actions in DC and across the country, incited by Republicans (and Trump in particular): In April, in response to Whitmer’s aggressive public-health measures, Trump had tweeted, “Liberate Michigan!” Two weeks later, heavily armed militia members entered the state capitol, terrifying lawmakers. In her January 16th dispatc...

Biden’s Presidency Faces Early Defining Moment In GA Runoffs

Its Time To Cast Your Vote For The Duke Of Dukes

Alas, Michele Bachmann’s unhinged diatribes about  terrorist Muslims infiltrating the U.S. government could not top Dinesh D’Souza’s batshit.

Without A Blue Senate, A Pres. Biden Would Have To Dramatically Adjust His Expectations

As Democrats watched their opportunities to take back the Senate evaporate one by one Tuesday night, an increasingly likely future came into focus: President Joe Biden could take the White House, but Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) would keep hold of the Senate.  Biden doesn’t have the White House locked down quite yet, though he appears to have bagged Wisconsin and Arizona, and the outstanding vote in Michigan looks encouraging for him. Pennsylvania and maybe even Georgia may come through as ...
