Did Hillary Clinton know of Benghazi attack in advance?
This is not shaping up to be a good week for Hillary Clinton. Not only has someone inside the Democrat party apparatus fed the New York Times a damning batch of emails that indicate that Hillary used the State Department to enrich cronies and lied to Gowdy’s Benghazi committee about her use of private email, she has now been firmly nailed down as being a | Read More »
Pay-to-play at Hillary’s State Department
The more we see of Hillary Clinton’s private emails the more corrupt and inept she is revealed to be. Clinton, is seems, attempted to use US foreign policy as a piggy-bank for her cronies and friends, paralleling the way she and her husband used American foreign policy to enrich themselves. Via The New York Times: While advising Mrs. Clinton on Libya, Mr. Blumenthal, who had | Read More »
Russ Feingold Refuses to Decline Super PAC Money for 2016
Russ Feingold is throwing his hat into Wisconsin’s 2016 Senate race against the man who beat him in 2010, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) 47%. Feingold is, if you will recall, a champion of so-called campaign finance reform (McCain-Feingold, anyone?) and a vocal critic of money in politics (or at least the kinds of money Democrats don’t like). So, it should go without | Read More »
Will Congress Finally Defend Its Constitutional Turf – to Stop the EPA’s Assault on Water?
It is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches. And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands. Obama’s Legacy of Overreach Obama Amnesty ‘Unprecedented’ Threat to Constitution Obama Is Breaking The Law By Repeatedly Making Changes To ObamaCare Without Going Through Congress Net Neutrality Power Grab Is Worse than ObamaCare The Coming Climate | Read More »

Georgia Right to Life Bullies Congress Against Pro-Life Bill
In Bible-belt Georgia, one would think that pro-life organizations would support the federal “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which imposes a 20 week abortion ban (with exceptions for rape and incest). The bill passed the House last week generally along party lines, 242-184. But one pro-life organization vigorously opposed this bill. Georgia Right to Life wrote that the bill, H.R. 36, “contains dangerous exceptions | Read More »
Two Argentine judges have lost their minds
Try as I might, I couldn’t come up with a shorter or more clever title, mostly because I’m horrified at how the world around us is going straight into a Hell I never imagined*. Two Argentine judges are under fire for reducing the sentence of a convicted child abuser on the grounds that his six-year-old victim was gay. They said he ‘was making a precocious | Read More »
Liberalism Is Lethal – Baltimore Proves It
If Progressivism makes so much gosh-darned progress, then please explain to me why Freddie Gray drank his water from leaden plumbing. His family is suing the city. Their child is dead. They probably voted repeatedly for the people that helped make their own city a killing ground worth of Al-Anbar Province in Iraq. Here’s a brief bio of Freddie Gray that appeared in The Washington | Read More »

The New York Times Must Ignore History to Place Blame on California’s Woes
Adam Nagourney, writing in the New York Times over the weekend, penned this piece looking at the history of Calfornia’s father-son governors, Pat Brown and Jerry Brown. He used the California drought to cast the story of Jerry Brown, now the governor, having to clean up the messes caused in part by his father. Pat Brown was California’s governor during the boom time of the | Read More »
Tech at Night: Radio ga ga
No industry should ever get special privileges in this country. That’s picking winners and losers at a basic level. Radio gets a cutout, and it should be ended. Copyright is copyright. Just ask any freelancer what having your stuff given away for free, in exchange for ‘exposure,’ is really worth.
Waco, Caring and Police Brutality
So a bunch of really bad people decided to engage in a turf war over drugs, babes and a grubby hang-out called Twin Peaks.* Eight people died another 192 went to the can. The police came in like a pissed-off hurricane and exercised peace through superior firepower. The aforementioned “business establishment” got the business and won’t be reopening for at least seven days. If we | Read More »
Hog: For the Summer
I get copies of books to review and have been fortunate enough to start getting cookbooks for review. Most of them have been dreadful. Seriously — they’re food porn with recipes that look beautiful, but no one would ever want to make, let alone could because of the complex and hard to find ingredients. But some real gems come my way too. I was not | Read More »
President Obama’s Permanent Presidency?
Imagine if President Obama and his policies never left office.
Imagine if the unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in the IRS, DOJ, HHS, DHS, and other federal agency could target conservatives, “piece together” charges against patriots, and force a permanent partisan progressive agenda on the American people.
That’s the reality we face in America today. But there is something we can do.

The Culture War is Upon You, Whether You Want it or Not
With the fall of Ramadi to ISIS over the weekend, many foreign policy analysts are scrambling to assign and apportion blame between George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and various other recent key players for the slow-rolling failure of the current Iraqi state. I guess these questions are interesting within the context of political supremacy here in the United States as between Republicans and Democrats – | Read More »
