Latest Conservative Controversies Added
  • Energy Secretary Rick Perry seemed to not understand the law of supply and demand during a visit to a coal plant near Morgantown, West Virginia. Perry began by saying " here's a little economics lesson: supply and demand. You put the supply out there and the demand will follow.” The problem with that statement is that is not how the law of supply and demand works.
  • The Trump Administration waited too long to book a hotel for the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany and had to find alternate accommodations because all the hotels in the town were booked by other dignitaries.
  • Donald Trump gave a speech to a very friendly crowd in Warsaw Poland and that is very likely because the Polish government promised Trump cheering crowds and bused in thousands of people sympathetic to Mr. Trump.
  • United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley complained that North Korea's missile test of a weapon that could reach the United States ruined her July 4th holiday plans because she was "spending [her] 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea."
  • Donald Trump seemed to not know what Presidential limo to enter after deplaning Air Force One when he arrived to D.C. after another weekend at one of his golf properties. Trump walked off his air plane and wandered around the tarmac before being redirected by a military aide who walked him to his limousine.
  • Donald Trump shared an edited video of himself body slamming a wrestler with a CNN logo blocking out his face in an apparent attempt to incite violence against the network and its reporters.
  • The commission Donald Trump set up to investigate the non-existent voter fraud problem in America asked all fifty states to give them confidential and sensitive voter information. The commission asked states to turn over the "dates of birth, political party (if recorded in your state), last four digits of social security number if available, voter history (elections voted in) from 2006 onward, active/inactive status, cancelled status, information regarding any felony convictions, information regarding voter registration in another state, information regarding military status, and overseas citizen information."
  • Donald Trump signed an Executive Order that banned anyone from seven predominately Muslim countries from entering the United States regardless if they are current Visa holders. The seven countries are Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The order put a halt to accepting any refugees seeking asylum, no matter their country of origin, for 120 days. Update: A Federal District Court put an injunction on the ban. Update No. 2: Trump amended the ban and took Iraq off the list. Update No. 3: The Supreme Court allowed a portion of the ban to go into effect pending a full hearing on the ban in its term beginning in October.
