In defense of Ben Carson on the Border
Dennis Welch, local reporter for KTVK-TV in Arizona, made an outrageously worded report on Twitter about Ben Carson which he clarified right after. This report (I assume by design) sparked a wave of outrage against Ben Carson on Twitter. However I think that he’s probably right on border security, and here’s why.

Donald Trump Makes John Boehner Expendable
This year began with an election on whether Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% should continue as the Speaker of the House of Representatives. A number of brave House conservatives, led by Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) 86%, Tom Massie, and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 77%, waged a historic effort to deny Boehner the Speakership. What resulted was | Read More »
Jeb Bush supports more surveillance of Americans
So far, with the exception of an attack on Hillary’s alternative history of the Iraq War, Jeb Bush has given the impression of a man sleep-walking rather than one with the fire-in-the-belly it will take to win the nomination and the presidency. Sometimes he seems like the fighter who is trying to throw the fight just to make the pain end. Such was the case | Read More »
Scaring People To Death Is Not Science
How Modern Science Works Modern American Science has grown corrupt in the same way that $Trillion defense acquisition programs go corrupt. They burn through money by ginning up a threat that must be countered by massive action. The massive action never gets taken, while the threat never materializes. But the secular preachers of doom assure us that Armageddon is gathering in | Read More »
Re Senator Menendez: They Misspelled Whoremonger On The Internet
So Bob Menendez has decided to actually oppose something based on principle. YOLO, Baby! We should all try out new experiences. I’ll give the man some credit. In choosing to oppose the proposed US-Iran deal negotiated by John Kerry and the guy who was threatening to lock him up in the basement with the Gimp, he chose a pretty nasty thing to oppose. Principles are | Read More »

Bush donors getting uneasy
There is some whistling past the graveyard in this piece from The Hill: Jeb Bush’s donors aren’t sounding the alarm — yet. The former Florida governor had been labeled the GOP’s front-runner, but polls show he’s trailing Donald Trump by a wide margin. Even some supporters say he turned in a shaky performance at the first Republican debate earlier this month. The son of one | Read More »

Hillary’s email problem gets worse
Hillary Clinton’s email has proven to be the gift that just keeps on giving for the Clinton campaign. It has metamorphosed from a right wing conspiracy that was belittled to something that appears to place Hillary Clinton and her closest associates in grave jeopardy. We already know at least 305 emails may contain classified information and of that 305 no less than two contain information | Read More »
