There is no impartiality in our journalists or our judges; often they don’t even pretend to not be committed to a cause.
Rod Dreher at the American Conservative pulls together several instances that demonstrate a complete lack of impartiality. Worse, they demonstrate that progressives don’t often even pretend anymore, though sometimes neither do conservatives.
The first instance he mentions is George Stephanopoulos, who has donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, while working as an Read more [...]
The White House denied it. Congress denied it. The Pentagon denied it.
They were lying. You probably guessed that already because you saw their lips move. Good call.
From World Magazine: “U.S. aided arms flow from Benghazi to Syria.”
Documents released today confirm the Obama administration knew weapons were flowing out of Benghazi, Libya, to Syrian rebels in 2012 even though the rebels had well-publicized ties to al-Qaeda and other extremist groups.
Previous reports, including one by WORLD Read more [...]
Richland, Mississippi, sports a new asset forfeiture police station and demonstrates why it is tolerated.
I remember when I was a young child watching a lot of animal shows. They would often show a predator—typically some kind of big cat like a lion or cheetah—sneak up on a heard of grazing herbivores like antelopes, deer, or cattle of some kind. When they charged, the grazers scattered and fled. Usually, the grazers then went a little distance away, calmed down, and started grazing again.

A Turkish teen was sent to the hospital after being shot in the head just for following her ambition to sing in her country's version of "The Voice" TV show.
Nineteen-year-old Mutlu Kaya was in critical condition Tuesday after being shot by someone who snuck into her backyard and shot her through a window while she was rehearsing.
The teen had reportedly been mentored by Sibel Can, a Turkish female folk singing star, and the family said that Can was helping with Kaya's treatment.
Kaya is Read more [...]
Silicon Valley both fundraises for Hillary Clinton and “pays” her millions for short speeches.
For awhile now I have written about how Hillary Clinton is essentially being lobbied, bribed, and/or paid off through insanely lucrative speaking gigs. Wall Street has been spending lots of money to buy her good will. Naturally, Silicon Valley is also bidding for her favor.
As the Washington Post reports, “Hillary Clinton was paid millions by tech industry for speeches.”
In one of her last Read more [...]
The Vice President listed religious condemnation along with violence and mistreatment by police as threats that homosexuals face.
Just like Hillary Clinton promised to change Christianity, Joe Biden has officially equated believing the Bible with violence against “gays.”
Here is Biden’s official statement for the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia:
My father taught me the simple notion that everyone, everywhere is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect. When Read more [...]
Rand Paul makes the most obviously true statement about ISIS and Saddam Hussein, but it is one that other Republicans are running from.
CNS News reports, “Sen. Rand Paul: 'ISIS Is More of an Aberration' Than Saddam Hussein.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that the threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is “more of an aberration” than Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was.
“I would say that I think that we are more at risk for attack from Read more [...]
The Federal Government is pushing back against students on social media to promote Michelle Obama’s school lunches.
As you know, students have been posting pictures of their disgusting, unsatisfying lunches on social media. See this post for a sample lunch that is completely unappetizing.
What was notable about these students is that no one paid them for pictures and no one was paid to solicit such pictures.
But now we get a response from the USDA.
The Washington Free Beacon reports, Read more [...]
Are reports that the President will end the militarization of the police to be trusted?
I wanted to believe it but the very first sentence in this summary news report killed my ability to believe that we are really going to see anyone put a stop to the militarization of police.
From Newser.com: “No More Grenade Launchers, Bayonets for Local Police.”
If a police department wants to outfit itself with military equipment, it will now have to make a very strong case for why it needs to.

A crony capitalism agency of the Michigan state government has hidden their expenses on their own authority.
It is pretty amazing that our state governments pretend that taking taxpayer money and giving it to huge corporations is in the public interest and the legitimate power of the state. But it is even more amazing when such a department of crony capitalism (i.e. pseudo-capitalism) makes its work—which is allegedly so good for the economy—a state secret.
Back in 2009, the Michigan Economic Read more [...]
Men kill themselves far more often than women do everywhere on the planet. So who is being oppressed?
Quartz.com published a stunning graphic along with an astounding story about male suicide. Men kill themselves in far greater numbers than women do virtually everywhere in the world.
In fact, briefly looking at the data, Japan and South Korea stand out as anomalies where the male suicide rate does not more than triple the woman’s rate.
So why do men kill themselves?
