    Progressive-turned-conservative comedian Roseanne Barr suggests stunning revelations on child sex trafficking will come to light this week. “lots of ppl will become Woke AF this week,” tweeted Barr. Earlier in the evening, Barr tweeted about how President Trump is strongly opposed to child sex trafficking. Barr then underscored how important it is to stop the suffering of innocent children. “I perceived Hollywood’s sexism 2B so pervasive as to not even be noticed-it was class based discrimination, with racial undertones based in anti-semitic sado-spiritual necroPedoism. #ThisIsNow. Trump opposes child trafficking & knows exactly where The Locos is-not many ppl r brave...

    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.”Lewis Carroll, “Through the Looking Glass,” 1872Although appearing in a satirical novel nearly a century and a half ago, this statement by Humpty Dumpty in many respects describes the post-factual world in which we now live.  “Reality shows” are anything but; substantive courses of study like history and civics increasingly are overshadowed by such drivel as “transgender studies”; and “fake news” has become the common currency of those who make news just as for...

    Roseanne Barr is not just a funny woman, she is also very adept at calling out BS. That’s exactly what she did with her now viral tweet about Obama. Obama’s presidency did not happen overnight, decades of evolving political correctness, the unraveling of the American family, and a Democrat pushed agenda to offer “free” stuff to voters to trick them into becoming completely dependent upon the government– they all got Obama elected! (tweet from tweeter machine) I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,” Roseanne Barr said earlier this year. “Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary. I think...

    The Obama administration doesn’t have watchdogs. It has whitewash puppies. The president’s Chicago bullies have defanged true advocates for integrity in government in D.C. from day one. So the latest report by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee on corruptocrat Charles K. Edwards, the former Department of Homeland Security inspector general, isn’t a revelation. It’s confirmation. Investigators found that Edwards compromised the independence of his office by socializing and sucking up to senior DHS officials. “There are many blessings to be thankful for this year,” the sycophantic Edwards wrote to the DHS acting counsel on Thanksgiving 2011, “but...

    Actress-comedian Roseanne Barr praised Republican Donald Trump, blasted Democrat Hillary Clinton and expressed doubts about the American political system in a wide-ranging interview with the Hollywood Reporter this week. “I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,’ the 67-year-old Roseanne star told THR on the eve of the California primary. “Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary.” Barr, whose own 2012 presidential run is the subject of the new documentary Roseanne for President!, told THR that she supports Trump in the 2016 election because to her, “[Trump] is saying that the order of law matters.” “When a president can...

    The other day, Steve Hayes had this piece up at the Weekly Standard. In it, he noted that Cruz was running a video positing himself as the heir to the Ron Paul Revolution. You'd never even know Rand was running. Rand Paul, after all, was the fusion candidate who was going to bring libertarians and conservatives together along for a ride against the left. It has not happened. Rand Paul's campaign has imploded. And now, if you scroll down in this article towards the end you will find this blurb: "Former Georgia congressman and Libertarian candidate for president Bob Barr...

    Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A. King, the president of the Dustin Inman Society, former congressman, Libertarian presidential candidate, and current Republican congressional candidate Bob Barr said he would work to pass federal legislation that mandated the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. (SNIP) In fact, in 2010 Bob Barr called “E-Verify” big brother-ism. In 2011, Bob Barr also opposed E-Verify. In May of 2013, Bob Barr opposed E-Verify. Hell, last week Bob Barr opposed E-Verify.

    Kentucky Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr of Lexington is one of the targets of a new ad campaign from national Democrats who are trying to put incumbent GOP congressmen on the defensive for repeatedly voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched web ads Tuesday aimed at Republican congressmen in competitive re-election races — including Barr — on the effect their attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act would have on their constituents. The DCCC is also launching a website, , in which Kentuckians and other Americans can share their stories of how the...

They hacked the Twitter account of Aaron Barr, the chief executive of HBGary, and sent out a series of angry tweets while many Americans were watching the Super Bowl match on Sunday night, allegedly including Barr's social security number and address, and his mobile phone number.

    Lexington Herald Leader ^ | November 6, 2012 | Jack Brammer
    The second time around proved a winner Tuesday for Republican Andy Barr in wresting Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District seat from Democratic incumbent Ben Chandler. Barr, a Lexington attorney, lost to Chandler in 2010 by 648 votes but defeated him Tuesday by more than 11,000 votes, thanks in large part to a huge sentiment in the 19-county district against Democratic President Barack Obama. Barr was successful in linking Chandler to Obama, especially on Chandler's support in 2009 for the Obama-backed "cap and trade" bill that angered coal officials by seeking to curb carbon dioxide emissions from coal-powered plants. The measure...

    While Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler voted against the original Affordable Care Act, he said it deserves a chance to be implemented and cut health care costs, which he also said is the best hope for preserving Medicare. “Let’s see if the Affordable Care Act works … We need to see if it deals with the cost issue,” he said. (8:50 in the interview.) And he said holding down the cost of health care overall is the way he believes Medicare can be saved even as it continues to add to the debt. Chandler, in his recent campaign ads, has...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — A lawyer for U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler's re-election campaign contends that a coal executive featured in at least three political ads has become a public figure, which negates claims he has been slandered. Louisville attorney John McGarvey responded by letter Tuesday to a claim that the Chandler campaign had slandered River View Coal Vice President Heath Lovell, who supports Chandler's Republican opponent, Andy Barr. Chandler and Barr are engaged in what is expected to be Kentucky's most competitive general election congressional race. Barr, a Lexington attorney, sought a rematch with Chandler after losing a squeaker to him...

    A coal executive is threatening to sue Congressman Ben Chandler over a recent campaign ad. Chandler is facing Republican Andy Barr in the November election. Executive Heath Lovell appeared in a Barr ad recently wearing a hardhat and miner's garb. In response, Chandler has been running an ad saying Lovell is not actually a coal miner. Lovell's attorneys sent Chandler a letter today asking that the campaign take down the ad. The letter also included certificates to show Lovell is a certified miner for underground and surface coal operations in the commonwealth. A spokesperson for Chandler did immediately not return...

    A senior Obama administration political appointee and longtime aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano resigned Saturday amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior lodged by at least three Immigration and Customs Enforcement employees. Suzanne Barr, chief of staff to ICE Director John Morton, said in her resignation letter that the allegations against her are "unfounded." But she said she was stepping down anyway to end distractions within the agency. ICE, a division of the Homeland Security Department, confirmed Barr had resigned. The Associated Press obtained a copy of Barr's letter.

    (CNN) -- The Green Party welcomed comedian Roseanne Barr as a presidential candidate Friday, following her Twitter announcement. A spokesman for the grassroots movement said she completed the party's requirements to run under the Green banner and will promote their platform ahead of the 2012 election. Scott McLarty, national media coordinator for the party, said Barr and Jill Stein, the other candidate that met the qualifications, are committed to ending the influence of corporate money on politics and elections and served as active participants in the Occupy Wall Street movement. "She's showing that she really is understanding what the Green...

    Seven of Kentucky’s eight members of the congressional delegation signed the Americans for Tax Reform “no tax” pledge that they have found they now can’t get out of. U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler of Versailles, the only Democrat in that group to sign, now says signing that pledge that is monitored by Grover Norquist was one of the biggest mistakes of his congressional career. “I’m sorry I did that, too,” Chandler said just before the 6:00 of the interview video. “I thought I was doing it for one session. And he made a determination that you do it forever. And I...
