22 years of Clinton bashing-and-accusations and the most relentless scrutiny ever focused on a couple - including when GW Bush focused every resource he could apply as president to finding a smoking-gun, even diverting agents from anti-terror duties. And after all that?  This is all dey got? If YOU were scrutinized and accused for 22 years, with zero evidence - nada, nothing, zip - might YOU demand the bastards either put up or shut up?

At a cost of millions, the probe finds faulty security and preparation but no evidence of a coverup.

99 million year old feathers.
Because #evolution is fact.

Ninety-nine million years ago, two baby birds met an unfortunate end and their severed wings became encased in amber. This is their story.

"While Donald Trump’s campaign claimed that the candidate personally donated millions to charity between 2008-2015, Washington Post investigation out Tuesday only managed to find one donation amounting to less than $10,000."

Good news. Another source of helium has been found in Tanzania’s Rift Valley. Till now, the dangerously dwindling supply was nearly all sourced in Texas… till the Republican majority in the US Congress commanded that much of the U.S. Helium Reserve be sold - cheap - to their own cronies. An act of corrupt betrayal that, alas, is both typical and tangentially related to the War on Science.

Oh but they are very good at spending tens of millions of dollars on useless “hearings” pursuing a Benghazi grudge that bore no fruit whatsoever. None.

The field, in Tanzania, is estimated to contain twice as much of the gas as the U.S. Federal Helium Reserve.

Now it's time for post-lies politics

It's common knowledge that a large fraction of the British press was happy to lie in order to promote the Brexit cause. But what do you do when it becomes obvious to everybody that what you have been saying is rubbish? You just act as though you'd never said it. InFacts has done a great job pointing out examples where newspapers are putting out articles that directly contradict what they were saying just a few days ago, without batting an eyelid. In a similar vein, Vote Leave has been dismantling large parts of its website in the hope, I presume, that its supporters will forget what they were told (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/brexit-vote-leave-wipes-nhs-350m-claim-and-rest-of-its-website-after-eu-referendum-a7105546.html). And of course, the Brexit politicians have been swift to deny that they were making the promises and claims that they were making. On that last point, it may be that the lies were collective rather than individual: for example, I don't know whether Farage made the £350m per week claim, but he didn't exactly go out of his way to correct it.
Eurosceptic newspapers misled voters throughout referendum. Now they are writing about the dangers ahead - without even blinking an eye.

It always happens at every mass shooting. In the mind of conspiracy "theorists" there is no such thing as an actual mass shooting by a lunatic/terrorist, it always has to be a conspiracy to them.

"The Kochs have spent over $88 million in traceable funding to groups attacking climate change science, policy and regulation.

Of that total, $21 million went to groups that recently bought a full page New York Times advertisement defending ExxonMobil from government investigations into its systematic misrepresentation of climate science. If you're an executive at a big oil company watching as ExxonMobil is finally exposed for studying climate change, covering up the science and spreading misinformation, you're probably worried now that state attorneys general are knocking on Exxon's door."

"Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, is refusing to heed Pope Francis' call for Christians to apologize to members of the LGBT community whom they have offended."

Oh dear poor Bill Donohue, who has spent much of his life is upset that the people he's been harangue and demonizing for so long for back against him. Now that the Pope has said they should apologize poor Bill can't hide behind the church for his hatred. 
Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, is refusing to heed Pope Francis' call for Christians to apologize to members of the LGBT community whom they have offended. "No,” Donohue said on CNN's "New Day" Tuesday when asked if he would apologize. "As a matter of fact, I want an apology from gays. I’ve been assaulted by gays. I’ve never assaulted a gay person in my entire life."
