No deal from prosecutors; no delays. This beast should be dispatched before 2015 arrives.
I’m basing my opinion on the story in the Chicago Tribune, “Murder charges filed against suspect in deaths of 7 women in Gary, Hammond.”
A convicted sex offender has been charged with the murder of one of seven women found dead in Gary and Hammond over the weekend as police continue their investigation, including the suspect's possible involvement in other murders stretching back decades, police Read more [...]
Hate speech investigations nullify the First Amendment.
Oh brother. If this petition is granted, any radio or television station reporting weekly football scores could lose its license.
George Orwell, call your office!

The National Religious Broadcasters has asked the FCC not to open a proceeding on Read more [...]
A real journalist? Not in the New York Times, or course, but at the Daily Signal: “Benghazi Document Review Familiar to Career Public Servant.”
To Sonya Gilliam, a recent account of improper sorting of Benghazi-related documents at the State Department brought back vivid memories of her own encounters with high-level government officials who withheld, deleted or destroyed public records.
And one name stood out for its familiarity: Cheryl Mills.
A former deputy assistant secretary of Read more [...]
By sending aid "to civilians" that is knowingly being used to consolidate power in the Islamic state, and support ISIS killers, we are effectively creating the best enemy money can buy.
United States strategy in its fight with ISIS: Fight the enemy... feed the enemy. Bomb the enemy... train the enemy. Kill the enemy... heal the enemy.
Thus, the Daily Beast headline: “U.S. Humanitarian Aid Going to ISIS.”
While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in Read more [...]
Official police cowardice means it is better to sacrifice the innocent to death and maiming than risk a police officer’s life.
Look, I get it. Being a police officer today can be a thankless job. Even when you do the right and necessary thing, mindless minions in the culture and their media-savvy figureheads might decide to turn the criminal you had to take down into a martyr. At that point, you find yourself vilified by a bunch of people who don't care a whit about justice—they simply Read more [...]
At an Obama campaign event Democrats walked out.
This is being portrayed as an event where Obama campaigned for a Democrat running for the office of Governor in Maryland.
But that portrayal is not convincing. Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown is ahead of his GOP opponent by 11 points according to Real Clear Politics. So this wasn’t Obama helping out a local politician. This was a local politician with a comfortable enough lead that he believed that he could afford proximity to the President Read more [...]
Any deficit reduction victory will soon be forgotten amid a national debt crisis.
A few days ago Bob Allen responded to Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew’s “victory lap” over the historically small deficit.
You know you’re doomed when your Secretary of the Treasury takes a “victory lap” simply because the Federal Government devoured an all-time record of citizens’ hard-earned money—and it still spent half-a-trillion more than it plundered!
A Bloomberg story backs up Bob’s Read more [...]
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, notice of Obamacare insurance cancellations are going out to many Coloradans.
It is all just more fallout from the Big Lie: “If you like your plan you can keep your plan.”
The Colorado Division of Insurance announced Friday a surge in health-care policy cancellations in the wake of Obamacare, just what Democratic candidates in high-profile races didn’t need less than three weeks before Election Day.
In a letter to state Senate Republicans, Colorado Read more [...]
Same sex marriages are mandatory for Christian ministers.
And the hits just keep on coming.
“It's all about equality...” “We just want to live and let live...” “It won't lead to polygamy.”
Here is the story from Todd Starnes of Fox News Radio: “City Threatens to Arrest Ministers Who Refuse to Perform Same-Sex Weddings.”
Two Christian ministers who own an Idaho wedding chapel were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to $1,000 in Read more [...]
The Ebola Czar shows that people want to believe in magic. They want to believe in magic people who work like genies granting wishes.
It is pretty clear that no one knows how to manage the PR and the real health risks involved in the African Ebola epidemic. So what do they do? They find someone who they want to believe will make all the hard decisions for them. If that person fails, the blame will be put on him. If he succeeds, Barack Obama will take the credit (though he will generously give Read more [...]
Recent fuel prices are spoiling the government’s plans for getting us all into alternative energy and other technologies they have been pushing on us.
In every case, the government’s apologists and spokespersons claim, in the most condescending and pretentious manner possible, that the government has the experts and the resources to tell us all how to best move into the future. We don’t have “five-year-plans” in the U.S. but that isn’t because the people who rule us don’t wish Read more [...]
A town is blatantly running a criminal operation in its gun permit procedure. Of course, being criminal, they did try to keep it quiet for awhile. But, now that it is revealed, they have insisted on continuing.
The Second Amendment acknowledges the right to bear arms, which calls into question the whole concept of a government-issued gun permit. But the law has been allowed for a basic background check involving public information.
The Fourth Amendment acknowledges the right to be secure Read more [...]
