Former Baltimore Mayor and Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley was once thought to be the next big thing in Democrat politics... not so much anymore. He's taking the Democrat National Committee head-on and he's not winning any friends by doing so. For the second time in a matter of weeks he's calling out the DNC for what he says is "rigging" the primary for Hillary Clinton. However, in the latest example of his willingness to attack his own party for playing politics, he decided to specifically call Read more [...]
Department of Homeland Security officials are wasting taxpayers’ money by failing to keep track of how many warehouses their agencies have.
“Because the warehouse inventories are inaccurate, DHS cannot manage warehouses or … limit the size of real property inventories and reduce costs,” the DHS Inspector General said in a report made public Tuesday.
“We found buildings that should not have been on the department’s warehouse inventory. Conversely, we found buildings that should have Read more [...]
It started when an outraged parent of a second-grader went to the American Humanist Association (AHA) for assistance in suing the school for allowing a principal to pray at a graduation ceremony. It wasn’t just that the principal Lisa Patterson prayed, but apparently she ended her praying with "in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen." Oh, and also there was a sign on school grounds with “Jesus” written on it.
According to the AHA, these are both instances of violations of the Constitution’s establishment Read more [...]
The only religion that Atheist organizations like the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the American Humanist Association really care about is Christianity. To appear objective, Atheists might criticize religions like Islam, but they don’t harbor hatred toward them like they do with Christianity.
If a public schoolteacher says anything about being a Christian, Atheists are quick to sue that teacher personally and in his professional capacity for violating the 1st Amendment’s “Establishment Read more [...]
"There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice." - Charles de Montesquieu
Malevolent action taken by the federal government is rarely overt. Any action taken by the government that is designed to strip away our rights is always marketed as being "for the good of the people." That's how they get away with it. The leaders of a republic cannot simply say "We're taking these rights because they don't belong to you anymore." There must always Read more [...]
If the details of the Iranian nuclear agreement and the rhetoric surrounding it seems overwhelming, you're not alone. In a sky with a million points of light, it's difficult to know where to look. The most basic question is the best place to start. Will this deal allow Iran to construct a nuclear weapon? Yes. But how? What components of the deal are most likely to allow Iran the means to build a nuclear weapon?
For me, the two components of the nuclear agreement most likely to allow Iran the capacity Read more [...]
Hillary Clinton may be having some problems with our criminal justice system of late, but that doesn’t mean that she’s forgotten how to pander. Liberals love Labor Day because it offers them the opportunity to get back to their socialist roots without seeming ‘overly socialist’ -- and Hillary is not one to ever miss a chance at being socialist. This year, in the midst of a run at the Democrat presidential nomination, the Clinton team decided to use Labor Day as a means of pandering to her Read more [...]
The American public continues to show a staggering level of ignorance about the basic principles of America’s Constitution and government, according to a new survey put out by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA).
ACTA, which promotes high standards and a core curriculum for college students, commissioned a survey of 383 college graduates nationwide and quizzed them on basic American civics via a series of multiple-choice. The result were, for the most part, appalling.
When Read more [...]
U.S. Democrat Senator Tim Kaine from Virginia referenced the recent on-air double murder by Bryce Williams as evidence that our current gun control laws don’t work to stem senseless gun violence. He then proposed more gun control laws that would effectively ban private sales and transfers of guns and that also won’t work to stem senseless gun violence.
His proposed law, the Responsible Transfer of Firearms Act, would make the seller of any firearm criminally liable should he not take the proper Read more [...]
The men’s barbershop in Washington, Pennsylvania referred the woman elsewhere and even offered to pay for her haircut because of the inconvenience of not being able to serve her. Now, they’re getting slapped with a $750 fine by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs for gender discrimination. The Associated Press reported:
[Barbiere] Owner John Interval tells the (Washington) Observer-Reporter the fine “infringes” on his shop’s environment.
The female Read more [...]
According to an article in The Intercept, the private prison lobby is working closely with Hillary Clinton to fund her 2016 presidential run:
Last week, Clinton and other candidates revealed a number of lobbyists who are serving as “bundlers” for their campaigns. Bundlers collect contributions on behalf of a campaign, and are often rewarded with special favors, such as access to the candidate.
Richard Sullivan, of the lobbying firm Capitol Counsel, is a bundler for the Clinton campaign, Read more [...]
If you had any questions about the limited tolerance of the leftists who are most vociferous in their calls for open-mindedness, wonder no longer. A lesbian mother has lost a suit against a sperm bank for “wrongfully” impregnating her with the sperm of a black man:
Jennifer Cramblett, a 36-year-old woman from Uniontown, Ohio, filed suit Sept. 29 against Chicago-area Midwest Sperm Bank because, according to the allegations, the clinic artificially inseminated and impregnated her with the wrong Read more [...]
