Like other preppers, he's afraid of some impending catastrophe but also what that will do to American society. "I think that is what...

    Friday on MSNBC's "Hardball," the son of former president Ronald Reagan slammed the Republican base as the "the most ignorant 20 percent of America." "Here's the Republican Party once again presenting themselves with all sorts of Catch-22 situations," Reagan said. "I assume John Boehner is trying to appeal, as well as to people in his party there in Congress, the 20 percent of America that's really the most ignorant 20 percent of America. i.e., the Republican base. The problem with that is while you are appealing to the ignorant 20 percent, 80 percent of the country think's you're crazy and...."

    Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) told Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) that he may be the next victim of the anti-incumbent Tea Party mood sweeping America with the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor earlier this year, Politico’s Manu Raju reports. “I might be next,” a “deadly serious” Roberts told Corker on a ride on the underground senate subway, Roberts recounted in an interview with Politico’s Raju in Kansas. “You never know.” Roberts was referring to how Dave Brat beat Cantor using an anti-incumbency style that Roberts’ current conservative primary opponent, Dr. Milton Wolf, is following. Wolf—President Barack Obama’s second cousin—has...

    During his Monday commentary segment on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” network senior political analyst Brit Hume argued the blame for the so-called humanitarian crisis at the southern border isn’t President Barack Obama and his administration’s fault. Instead he argued it was the law’s fault. Hume pointed to the wording of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, pointing out that it has specific requirements for unaccompanied minors coming into the United States illegally and that he said is where much confusion lies. “In the uproar of tens of thousands of illegal children pouring across the border,...

    Almost everyone agrees that Mike Huckabee is a likable guy. From my own interactions with him, I can testify that Huckabee is a guy I’d enjoy spending time with. He listens well – and, as a result, a conversation with him is always worthwhile. Don’t believe me? Just watch 15 minutes of his FOX News show, and you’ll be amazed at the way he treats both friend and foe with courtesy. He’s genuinely willing to listen to others’ arguments. The notoriously liberal publication, Newsweek, even showed him grudging appreciation in a 2007 profile, saying: “Huckabee comes across as an easygoing,...

    Returning to the same New Hampshire farm where he launched his last presidential campaign, Mitt Romney on Wednesday insisted he would not pursue a third White House bid but called on voters to punish President Barack Obama by giving Republicans the Senate majority this fall.

    Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate. His comments were made between 9:59 and 10:44 in the interview and began as an explanation of why he would not run for Arizona governor despite appeals to do so. Arpaio said, “I would have to resign; I’m not going to leave this office to somebody coming in when I have sensitive investigations going.” And then came the bombshell. Arpaio continued: “including the president’s birth certificate — I...

    Vinnie Troia, the CEO of Night Lion Security and a computer hacking forensic investigator stated that even though the IRS cancelled its contract with e-mail backup service, the agency’s e-mails are still stored off-site and should be retrievable. Troia pointed out that “even according to the 2012 and 2013 audits which were performed on the IRS systems, they were shown to have back-ups that were fully functional, back-ups that were offsite and tested to be properly off-site,” adding “those back-ups do exist somewhere. It is just a matter of finding them and going after them.” He also reported that the...
