    "Most of the big ‘investigations’ in the news in recent years have not been at all what they pretended to be. The sham investigations of Hillary’s email, or the Clinton Foundation, or Weiner’s laptop, or Uranium One, or Mueller’s witch hunt, or Huber’s big nothing, or the IG’s whitewash, or the Schiff-Pelosi charades, have all been premeditated deceptions." The investigations are political theater. The column explores three types of fake investigations.

    Interview with Peter Schweizer ^ | March 2018 | Peter Schweizer
    Corruption is changing. The old school corruption is where a politician takes a bribe or payoff. These days, the politician doesn't take it themselves, but steers it to an adult child or a best friend. And both political parties are doing it. It's really a question of the kind of leadership we're going to have.  It's impossible for our leaders to respond to what we want — to make good decisions — if a chief motivation is to enrich their families and themselves. When you trace the money, you often find it comes from foreign governments like China and from...

    Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez has fired the island’s director of emergency management after officials found a warehouse full of emergency supplies dating back to 2017's Hurricane Maria. Vasquez dismissed Carlos Acevedo on Saturday and gave officials two days to investigate why the wasted supplies were forgotten. The warehouse was initially investigated for damage following recent earthquakes in the area, and investigators found thousands of items of supplies, including food, water, diapers, and medicine that were intended to help those affected by Hurricane Maria years ago. ¡Esto le saca las lágrimas de coraje a cualquiera! 😡😡😡 Pañales, comida para bebés,...

    Something remarkable just happened. The Houston Astros were punished in a severe way for having cheated to win the 2017 World Series. Major League Baseball suspended the team's manager and general manager for a year. It took away the Astros' first- and second-round draft picks for the next two years. It also fined the team $5 million. And then the Astros fired the manager and general manager, who led them to a World Series win. That's how you deal with cheaters -- short of a prison term. That's how you send a message that cheating will not be tolerated. That's...

    Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico’s Office of Emergency Management, was dismissed Saturday. The governor appointed Maj. Gen. José J. Reyes, the adjutant general of the Puerto Rico National Guard, to replace him. Acevedo has denied allegations of mishandling, saying the agency has been actively distributing supplies, according to a statement released through the office of emergency management. No residents have been denied any supplies in the warehouse, including food, diapers, baby formula and cots, Acevedo said. He said about 600 pallets of water were distributed when Hurricane Dorian and Hurricane Karen threatened Puerto Rico and during a drought that...

    In what is rapidly turning into one of the most bizarre developing stories in baseball history, a Twitter account alleging to be the niece of Carlos Beltran is beginning to drop some of the most profound bombshells the MLB has ever seen. A day after saying her uncle was stepping down as Mets manager a full 24 hours before the news of Beltran’s actual resignation officially broke, the mysterious account is now allegeding that Houston Astros superstars Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman wore ‘devices that buzzed’ on their shoulders, that were controlled by a hallway video guy who was already...

    Parents are plenty angry about a New Jersey law that requires LGBT material to be incorporated into public school classroom instruction. The parents say they are concerned the new law will “teach lifestyles and life choices that stand 100% against our family values.” They object to their tax dollars being used for what they call an “assault on religious liberty.” And they say a special interest group helping develop curricula for the new requirements has a “radical agenda” that could jeopardize the health and safety of children.

    The American people no longer trust what they hear from the media and their government. . . While the media and government officials have repeatedly assured the country that Epstein committed suicide in his prison cell on August 10, 2019, the American people are not convinced. A new Rasmussen Reports survey indicates that only 21% of the American people believe that Epstein killed himself. While 27% are undecided, most respondents, 52%, believe that Epstein was murdered.

    A bill to legalize adult prostitution in Vermont was recently introduced by female lawmakers in the state’s legislature. The bill’s text read: This bill proposes to repeal the prostitution laws while retaining felony human trafficking laws that prohibit recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining a minor for the purpose of commercial sex; patronizing a minor for commercial sex; recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining any person through force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of having the person engage in commercial sex; compelling any person through force, fraud, or coercion to engage in commercial sex; and patronizing any...

On September 10, 2019, the Chula Vista library held a particularly hideous and perverted “Drag Queen Story Hour” event.

    When an honest politician makes a mistake, he owns up to it. But after Joe Biden made a massive mistake by supporting the failed 2003 Iraq War that cost thousands of American lives and only further destabilized the Middle East, the 2020 candidate and his surrogates have instead chosen to completely deny that it ever happened. This continued on Sunday during Face the Nation on CBS. Former Secretary of State John Kerry, who has endorsed Biden for 2020, was asked by host Margaret Brennan about 2020 rival Bernie Sanders’ criticism of Biden’s support for the Iraq war. The Sanders campaign...

    Was President Donald Trump’s short term campaign foreign policy volunteer Carter Page set up by an FBI informant or the informant’s handler at the FBI? On the The Sara Carter Show, Page discussed the recent revelations in Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report and his interview in The Federalist where questions surfaced regarding his first meeting with Stefan Halper, one of the FBI’s spies in the Trump campaign. Questions Linger Questions still loom regarding Halper’s and his FBI handler. It appears that Horowitz’s report raises more answers than questions, said Page, who was not given the opportunity to...

    Maryland Governor Larry Hogan repeatedly steered state transportation development money to projects that would increase the value of his real estate holdings, according to a lengthy investigation by Washington Monthly’s Eric Cortellessa. Cortellessa reports that Hogan, who ostensibly left his brother in charge of his real estate brokerage firm when he was elected, has, in fact, maintained ownership and control while serving as governor; the trustees he handpicked to run his company have continued to keep him apprised of its business dealings. And as governor, he has advanced highway and road construction projects that directly boosted the value of land...
