Throw the Book at Bowe Bergdahl
We have lost all sense of justice in this country. Justice, at its root, is a word that means fairness.

Sane People Would Build More Reservoirs
Planet Earth is usually self-correcting and adjusting. Often cities, as heat islands, get really warm and then cause thunderstorms that cool them down. California has been in a drought situation and the Northeast got slammed with a blizzard last year — a blizzard with so much snow that in June one collected snow pile still existed.

A President for All Women
Josh Kraushaar, the political editor of the National Journal, spent ten paragraphs today kicking around the subject of Hillary Clinton’s rather wide and deep unpopularity among Male-Americans. I say “kicking around” because Kraushaar accidentally stumbled upon the reason why it’s happening, but he didn’t notice it. Pretend you are surprised to hear that a new NBC/WSJ/Marist poll… shows her favorability rating with men at a | Read More »

Philip Bump is a Hack. Clinton’s email was at risk.
Philip Bump, Washington Post reporter, is ready to criticize or talk down every candidate for President not named Hillary Clinton. But her, he’s ready to stick up for.

Hillary Clinton Disclosed Identity Of CIA Source From Sid Blumenthal
There comes a time when a “scandal” becomes a crime and in the case of Hillary Clinton, revealing the identity of a CIA source certainly seems to fit that description, even to a non-lawyer like me. Trey Gowdy, tired of leaks from Democrats on the Select Committee on Benghazi, designed to make Hillary Clinton look sympathetic, sent a blistering letter to Elijah Cummings who has | Read More »
After getting its butt kicked, Obama administration warns Russia of Syrian “blowback”
Ever since the Russians started their intervention in Syria, the theme coming out of the White House has been that the Russians will get “bogged down” in Syria.
