Hillary Clinton: Trustworthy?
The GOP opposition research group America Rising has released a very slick video on Hillary Clinton. If you reject Clinton and all her works and all her empty promises, as I do, you will be delighted. The neat editing of Bashar Assad (whom Clinton called “a reformer”) into what looks like him making a Nazi salute and the use of an extensive James Carville cut | Read More »
FBI declares Hillary Clinton an “insider threat”
Well, not exactly but very nearly. An “insider threat,” is defined by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center as: An insider threat arises when a person with authorized access to U.S. Government resources, to include personnel, facilities, information, equipment, networks, and systems, uses that access to harm the security of the United States. Malicious insiders can inflict incalculable damage. They enable the enemy to plant | Read More »

The novel Red Harvest describes just exactly how | Read More »
Yesterday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 90% referred to Hillary Clinton as “yesterday’s candidate.” It is a theme he can use about Jeb Bush too as he tries to pivot. Rubio, like Bill Clinton in 1992, is campaigning on a bridge further into the 21st Century. As he does so, along with the other Republicans, Hillary “Madam Yesterday” Clinton is going to keep | Read More »
Tech at Night: Republicans move to stop the picking of winners and losers
Picking winners and losers in the marketplace is a common theme in the Obama era, and Republicans want to put a stop to it. Marsha Blackburn has a bill to quit picking favorites in Radio and close up some copyright ‘loopholes’ (really just favoritism) in the current law. Meanwhile efforts are underway to block Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet misleadingly named ‘Net Neutrality’.

Hillary Needs a Man
One of my first thoughts upon hearing the (not surprising) news that Hillary Clinton is officially in the running for the presidency was: “She wouldn’t have gotten here without Bill.” It’s not as if they adore each other or anything. They clearly understand that they’re both one-half of a politically motivated duo whose role as a power couple won’t be ending any time soon. While | Read More »
Unions’ Pelosi-Like Pitch To Workers: You Have To Pass The Union To Find Out What’s In It…

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 18% [D-CA] made the statement “you have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Within two weeks, employees at Boeing’s plant in North Charleston, South Carolina may* be voting to determine whether or not to become unionized | Read More »
“Police” Accidentally Shoot Unarmed Man in Tulsa
This is a pretty terrible story out of Tulsa. The incident occurred a couple of weeks ago when police were chasing an unarmed suspect on foot. The suspect in question had been caught and corralled by the police and was on the ground when he was shot. The official story by the Tulsa PD is that the officer in question meant to reach for his | Read More »
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains a conservative favorite in 2016. In 2012, the establishment backed his Senate opponent in Texas, then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The conservative grassroots backed Cruz and pushed him over the finish line. Cruz has since remained a favorite of the grassroots with a continually antagonist relationship with the Republican establishment. In 2010, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul | Read More »
Smart guys: Congress should go back to sleep and let Obama complete Iran deal
One of the consistent refrains from the foreign policy establishment is that Congress is somehow impeding the impending Iran nuclear weapons agreement and that said impediments are a bad thing. This idea seems to be rooted in the utterly unconstitutional idea that Congress has no role to play in shaping US foreign policy and that the president has something approaching plenary powers when making agreements. | Read More »
