Joe Biden As Reverend DIMmesdale
Biden has sponsored more damaging drug war legislation than any Democrat in Congress. Hate the way federal prosecutors use RICO laws to take aim at drug offenders? Thank Biden. How about the abomination that is federal asset forfeiture laws? Thank Biden. Think federal prosecutors have too much power in drug cases? Thank Biden. Think the title of a “Drug Czar” is sanctimonious and silly? Thank | Read More »
Why Hunter Biden will get away with being thrown out of the Navy for cocaine use.
The more I read about Hunter Biden (VP Joe Biden’s son) cocaine-fueled discharge from the Navy, the more it stinks on ice: …it is worth noting that, while Biden’s summary discharge occurred last February, it did not become public until the Wall Street Journal revealed the story this week. Biden’s statement about “the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy” — for | Read More »

As a senior member of the United States Senate and as the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Finance (Committee), it is my duty under the Constitution to ensure that Inspectors General, which were created by Congress, are permitted to operate without political pressure or interference | Read More »
The Palins, the Bidens, and the Obamas

If anything, it has increased as she now takes to the campaign trail. One of the reasons is something I have not seen discussed much, if at all, in the media or in the blogosphere. But it is something I feel | Read More »
Pay no attention to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s totally not fair game. He’s only making money off his dad’s connections, that’s all.
Here is a story most of the MSM is going to run away from as fast as possible. The son of Barack Obama’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Joe Biden, is a top partner at a Washington law firm that has lobbied his father’s office, a family tie that could prove embarrassing for a campaign that has positioned itself as fighting lobbyists and special interests in | Read More »
