Republicans, you can bombard us with your disgusting lies and sleazy BS all you want. We're going to call you on it, each and every time, and expose you for what you really are.

Meanwhile, we really have to do something about the dominance of the "pretend liberals" in the Democratic Party.

And looking out around the globe:

Pruning Shears: Destroying Cyprus in order to save it.

The Duck of Minerva: The non-crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

The Peking Duck: Historical horrors and China's selective amnesia.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.

Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com.

Can you help us out?

For nearly 20 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
