Department of Interior official faked transcripts, lied about education
Well, this whole government data breach seems to be getting worse by the minute. The Department of the Interior’s computer systems played a major role in the breach of systems belonging to the Office of Personnel Management, and DOI officials were called before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday to answer questions about the over 3,000 vulnerabilities in agency systems discovered in | Read More »
My Conversation with Gov. Scott Walker
Earlier today I had a conversation with Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. He’s out on the campaign trail now. I started the interview with the late breaking news about Chattanooga, but also got him to focus on his one big item and why liberals, even when winning, seem so angry.
Apple, Inc. Has Little Interest in Conservative News Voices
I knew this was going to happen. I wrote about it a few weeks ago. It was my impression that Apple, in preparing a news service, would set it up in such a way as to make right-wing and orthodox Christian voices disappear. Sure enough. I just set up Apple News on my iPad. Here is the start screen. So we have the left-wing New | Read More »
Facts vs. Fluff on Gubernatorial Records
Because politicians add fluff to their records, it is important to compare the factual records of the conservatives running for president in 2016.

@BobCorker stunned that he is betrayed by Obama
Folks, this is Failure Theater at it’s freakin finest. It doesn’t get better than this. Obama is circulating a resolution for UN Security Council consideration that implements the Iran deal announced earlier in the week. The United States on Wednesday circulated a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council that would endorse the Iran nuclear deal but retain an arms embargo and ban on ballistic | Read More »

What the Hell Happened to Rand Paul?
Here is the guy who should be doing some cross-party fusion. He rallied a lot of Americans in bipartisan fashion on national security. He seemed to be playing his cards right. And . . . ? Bernie Sanders is kicking his butt in campaign fundraising. In fact, I dare say Sanders froze Paul’s chance at fusion. All the little rich libertine millennials that Paul was | Read More »
Wisconsin Supreme Court shuts down ‘John Doe’ investigation
This sad saga of abuse of authority by an unethical and highly partisan prosecutor may finally be at an end. By way of background, the Milwaukee County prosecutor, John Chisholm, decided to harness his office to Wisconsin’s misnamed ‘Government Accountability Board’ in order to harass Governor Scott Walker and jail, bankrupt or terrify as many of his allies as possible. To this end, innocent people | Read More »
AFL-CIO base futilely calls for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton.
The AFL-CIO base still thinks that their opinion matters when it comes to political endorsements. As the lady put it: “it is to laugh.”

Barack Obama: Willful Patsy
Joanne Chesimard killed a New Jersey state trooper named Werner Foerster during a traffic stop. Though she received a life sentence, Chesimard fled to Cuba where she has been taking refuge from the American legal system ever since. She joined Charlie Hill who, in 1971, killed a state trooper in New Mexico then hijacked a plane to Cuba. These two cop killers join almost seventy | Read More »
Moral Cowardice: President Obama Abandons Pastor Saeed and 3 Other Imprisoned Americans in Iran
In a stunning display of moral cowardice, President Obama struck a nuclear deal with Iran that leaves four U.S. citizens, including American Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned in Iran.
They’ve been abandoned. And for what?
The “historic” deal with Iran grants it billions of dollars in sanctions relief and new trade, a pathway to a nuclear weapon, and the privilege of being one of the only nuclear powers in the Middle East. What does it give up? Nothing.
In exchange for that epic disaster, President Obama is leaving behind four Americans. It’s diplomatic malpractice.

Review: “Go Set A Watchman”
In the days leading up to the release of Go Set A Watchman, the sequel to To Kill A Mockingbird (which remains my favorite book of all time), nearly every review of the book I read filled me with a sense of dread. Early reports of the book suggested a troublesome sequence of events, hinting that it was less “discovery of an old manuscript” and | Read More »
“HealthCare.gov does not appear to be set up to detect fraud.”
So, once you’re in healthcare.gov they’ll apparently renew you even if you’re fake. Charming.

Don’t Say Freedom of Religion.
We don’t need freedom of religion in this country. I’ll tell you why: that bland phrase, thanks to the popularization of the expression ‘separation of church and state’, has had its meaning warped in the minds of the public. We need to get back to the words in the Bill of Rights: We must fight for free exercise of religion.
Obama rewards a killer of American soldiers
While the biggest concern to most of us in regards to the Iran nuclear talks remains Obama’s aiding Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons, one of the most important items from Iran’s standpoint was the removal of economic sanctions. Not only were these sanctions hurting Iran’s economy and people — the mullahs could give a fat rat’s patootie about that — and it was hurting members | Read More »
