The “tea party” wing of the Republican Party is still trying to extract concessions from President Obama at this writing, and they’re taking the country to the brink with their budget demands and efforts to defund Obamacare. On top of that, tea party mercenaries such as Ted Cruz are even using the prolonged stalemate to raise funds for reelection. Does this sound like something a patriot would...  Read More

Ted Cruz, the “tea party” junior senator from Texas with the impeccable educational credentials, is dividing the Republican party over his threat to shut down the federal government if he doesn’t succeed in getting Obamacare defunded. He just doesn’t have the votes, and I guess since I don’t have such impeccable educational credentials, I don’t quite understand his strategy. Neither do many in...  Read More

Jim DeMint is a former senator from South Carolina. He quit the U.S. Senate in January to head the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing “think tank” that’s awash in money from the fossil fuel industry and conservative billionaire plutocrats. DeMint is identified with the so-called “tea party,” and is a favorite of the Koch brothers. The Heritage Foundation has consistently promoted the oil...  Read More

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! As the fiscal clock ticks down to midnight, it’s time once again for our congressional “tea party” clowns to take center ring. The Republican extreme obstructionists are threatening not to pass a stopgap measure, known as a continuing resolution, to keep the government operating after Sept. 30, unless President Obama’s Affordable Care Act is repealed,...  Read More

After the murderous rampages committed with guns in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo. and Tucson, Ariz., among other places, we all thought we were finally moving away from our bizarre national gun idolatry and toward common-sense reform on the gun-safety front. But the high priests of our national gun cult aren’t about to relinquish their power over America quite that easily. Last April, the NRA...  Read More

Since my last post on the butcher Bashar Assad, the British House of Commons voted against supporting U.S. missile strikes in Syria, and President Obama decided to seek congressional authorization for U.S. military action. The question with regard to Obama is why? Why, after defining a “red line” last year and insisting that he could strike Assad’s military without congressional approval, would...  Read More

The Rim fire, one of the biggest wildfires in California history, continues to burn in the Stanislaus National Forest. At this writing, it has consumed almost a quarter of a million acres of forest, including parts of Yosemite National Park, and is presently only about 45% contained. Full containment isn’t expected until Sept. 20. As a result of this fire and another 33,000 wildfires across the...  Read More

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), like most congressmen, was back in his district last week meeting with constituents during his summer vacation. Since he’s a so-called “tea party” Republican, of course as you’d expect, he was trashing President Obama and doing other mischief. You need to know that Bentivolio, a freshman who only took office in January 2012, represents Michigan’s 11th...  Read More

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
