You might know the name Jonathan Turley from his many appearances on the old Countdown with Keith Olbermann show and, most recently, from his vocal opposition to President Obama’s use of drones and NSA surveillance.

House Speaker John Boehner isn’t arrogant about Tuesday’s Republican victories. In a statement, he says it’s “not a time for celebration.” Boehner says instead, it’s time for government to start “implementing solutions to the challenges facing our country.” He says those challenges begin with what he calls a “still-struggling economy.” “Our proposals provide an opportunity […]

Besides promoting violence, there are other factual problems with John Boehner’s statement. Campaigning in Iowa, Boehner said: “When you look at this chaos that’s going on, does anybody think that Vladimir Putin would have gone into Crimea had George W. Bush been president of the United States? No! Even Putin is smart enough to know […]
