Are Republicans Self- Immolating Over Obama’s SCOTUS Pick?

Almost at the moment of the unexpected death of Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia last weekend, Republicans exploded in full spin mode, flailing their arms wildly, not unlike the Alien famously jettisoned by Ripley into hyperspace.  Their cause: selling the American people on the hype that President Obama, with nearly a year left in office, has no business appointing a new Justice to fill...

So asks radio host and EPIC TIMES founder Jerry Doyle. Jerry and I agree that a strong two party system is necessary for effective governance. But since President Obama’s last state...

The Terror in the Torture Report
