  • Sid Blumenthal (in Hillary E-Mails): Boehner 'Alcoholic', 'Lazy', 'Banal', 'Louche'...

    'Louche' = dubious, shady, disreputable Seems as if we conservatives are on the same page as Team Hillary, re. John Boehner's principles, morals, and skill set-- if a just-released 2011 e-mail from one of the Clintons' closest advisors is anything to go by: 'Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference," (Sidney) Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "They are repelled by his personal behavior.' 'He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle,' he added. 'He is not Gingrich, the natural leader of a revolution, riding the crest into power,'... 'He is careworn and...

    Secretary of State John Kerry said today at an Arctic conference in Anchorage that “anybody running for any high office in any nation in the world” should visit a place where the “seismic challenge” of climate change is happening “and inform themselves about this.” “And we as leaders of countries will begin to witness what we call climate refugees moving – you think migration is a challenge to Europe today because of extremism, wait until you see what happens when there’s an absence of water, an absence of food, or one tribe fighting against another for mere survival,” Kerry told...

    The President today announced from aboard Air Force One on his way to a 4 week vacation in sunny Iran By The Sea, that he would take Executive Action “immediately to rename the former America which is a site of significant cultural importance to the original inhabitants, the Iranians. Iran first populated this great country of folks back in 13,000 BM (Before Me.)

    In a move said to side-step Constitutional impediments to reasonable gun control, US Secretary of State John Kerry signed on to a UN agreement establishing an international gun registry and controls over the sale and transport of “small arms.” “Every sensible effort to restrict access to guns in the United States has been blocked by court rulings citing the Second Amendment’s ‘right to bear arms,’” Kerry complained. “Well, the US Constitution doesn’t apply to the UN. It is not fettered by the kind of out-of-date notions that stymie policy in this country.” “While the gun extremists at the NRA may...

    If they wasted 5 minutes on this, it was too long. As you know, Obama is the greatest President in the history of the United States. He secured our borders, fixed healthcare, healed race relations, decimated Al Qaeda, and reduced ISIS to its current “J.V. Team” level of effectiveness. Oh, and he also lowered the sea levels. We can’t forget that. To be sure, those are impressive feats. However, his greatest achievement may be that he did it all so quickly. By solving all of America’s problems in rapid succession, he’s given himself a lot of free time. Now, he...

    On Saturday night’s broadcast of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Milwaukee County, WI Sheriff David Clarke reacted to the killing of Harris County, TX deputy Darren Goforth, pinning the blame on President Barack Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder. According to Clarke, their rhetoric has caused an “open season” on police officers. “I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic with what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand about it,” Clarke said. “I said last December war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people, one...

    How many firearms are lost or destroyed in the United States?  Is the number of guns in the U.S. increasing or decreasing? The current estimate of the private stock of firearms in the United States is about 363 million (16 million were added in 2013).  That number was calculated by the cumulative addition of domestic manufacture plus imports minus exports.  This does not count guns shipped to the U.S. military.   The figures are rounded to the nearest million. Firearms manufactured before 1899 are not included.  The starting figure in 1945 is 47 million. The numbers do not account for...

    There are over 3,000 criminal statutes in Michigan, but a recent unanimous vote in the Michigan House will trim that number, eliminating several outdated laws in the first step toward simplifying the state’s enormous penal code. Overcriminalization has recently come into the spotlight in Michigan as part of a larger movement pursuing criminal justice reform. In 2014, the Mackinac Center and the Manhattan Institute published a study on the topic, Overcriminalizing the Wolverine State. The study advocated for clarification and consolidation of the current criminal code, guidelines to govern the creation of new criminal offenses and enactment of a default...

It is a startling image of the young French freedom fighter – and it would soon become iconic. It comes from a colour film, shot by Hollywood director George Stevens in August 1944. It immortalises an 18-year-old Simone shortly after she helped capture 25 German soldiers in her home village of Thivars, south west of Paris. The defiant teenager gazes back at the lens, dressed in blue shorts, a black-and-white top with a red sash and a khaki cap,...

That’s enough to totally overwhelm the 300 million Americans living in this country. There are only 125 million Mexicans. Even if every one of them migrated to the United States we’d still outnumber them by a wide margin.” The candidate went on to outline what he called “a strong plan to interdict illegal Asian immigration...

    It is no secret that over recent decades, constitutionally defined powers reserved to Congress or the states have swirled into the Executive branch. As a result, no matter the name or the party, the next President will possess and put to use the autocratic power secured by Barack Obama. His will be a broad authority associated far more with the likes of brute strongmen like Hugo Chavez than with George Washington. But don’t put the entire blame on Obama, for he didn’t pull the keystone to the Framers’ division of powers and claim them all for his own. Blame early...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's call for mass deportation of millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, as well as their American-born children, bears similarities to a large-scale removal that many Mexican-American families faced 85 years ago. During the Great Depression, counties and cities in the American Southwest and Midwest forced Mexican immigrants and their families to leave the U.S. over concerns they were taking jobs away from whites despite their legal right to stay. The result: Around 500,000 to 1 million Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans were pushed out of the country during the...

In this case, the federal government has decided a vegan company cannot put the name “Just Mayo” on its clearly labeled vegan mayonnaise product because the company doesn’t include egg whites in the mixture and does include some healthy stuff, like beta carotene.

They argue for more books and less bombs; in "nation-building" here rather than abroad; in spending American tax-payer treasure on education and infrastructure here at home. They believe that Iraqis and Syrians and Yazidis and Kurds, Sunni and Shia, Arabs and Persians, Pashtuns and Tajiks, and Muslims in general should all solve their own problems without the expense of one more American soldier's life.

    Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota granted plaintiffs an injunction against the Environmental Protection Agency's implementation of new navigable waterways regulations that were set for immediate enforcement. The EPA's new regulations would have extended its authority over every body of water within the United States including rain runoff, temporary puddles, and spillage from yard sprinklers and driveways where home owners wash their vehicles. The Judge observed that "it seems extremely improbable that the proposed EPA authority could conceivably apply to the so-called 'navigable waterways' described. As such, the 13 states suing the EPA...

    The red line is the number of private firearms in the United States, in units of 100,000.  At the end of 2013, the estimate was 363.3 million. The green line is the number of fatal firearm accidents, or unintentional firearm fatalities, in the United States.  The number in 2013 was the lowest recorded, 505. The number of fatal firearm accidents, or unintentional firearm fatalities, have been falling for more than 50 years.  At the same time, the number of firearms in the United States has been steadily rising.  The cause of fatal firearm accidents is not correlated to the...

    This is the perfect opportunity to defeat the establishment, who are currently weakened, disoriented and perplexed at the success of candidates they consider “jackasses.” Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! This week at a Colorado fundraiser House Speaker John Boehner stunned donors when he referred to Texas Senator Ted Cruz as a “jackass.” During remarks at the event for Congressman Scott Tipton, Boehner said he was grateful that Cruz was often campaigning for President, which kept that “jackass” away from Capitol Hill. Of course if there is one person who is an expert on jackasses it is Boehner....

    Kick the federal government out of their State in regards to Planned Parenthood, abortion, any and all health services, health programs, health care, or health insurance intrusions Radio Host Dave Levine, a host on KMET 1490 AM on Monday, wrote on his blog, “Arkansas is the fourth state to terminate such contracts with the Feds—New Hampshire, Alabama and Louisiana are the others. By this time next year, 30-plus states will have stopped funding the baby killer company.” Mr. Levine was referring to Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson’s decision to order his State’s Department of Human Services to terminate the Medicaid contract...

    Seeking to divert attention from her admittedly unwise and likely illegal handling of classified material through her unsecured private email account, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton sought to draw a parallel between advocates of defunding Planned Parenthood and Islamic terrorists. "Both groups relegate women to second class status," Clinton claimed. "Both deny women the right to control their reproductive heath. Both would force women to be vessels for carrying unwanted children into the world. Both espouse out-of-date ideas about how the world should work." GOP presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla) characterized Clinton's claims "as twisted and malevolent an inversion...

    Police say one car was shot at, and several other cars possibly hit by a sniper lurking along I-94 between I-69 and Battle Creek. Other possible hits happened on I-69 south to the Indiana border.

If you've found suspicious damage to your vehicle, contact police. Also, if you are driving and believe you are shot at, don't stop. The Sheriff says drive to...
  • Honolulu Mayor Gives up $575,000 to aid Gun Manufacturers

    Mayor Caldwell of Honolulu appears to have made the decision to destroy over half a million dollars of Smith & Wesson pistols, rather than sell them to police, police departments or to gun dealers anywhere.   The mayor did not seek to gain political "credit" for the decision.   The scheme was kept secret until it was leaked by whistle blowing police officers about a month ago.   No credible reason was given for destroying the valuable merchandise. There is no shortage of pistol manufacturers.  If the guns were sold to police or gun dealers, they would be directly competing with other...

    The statewide news site MLive recently published a column by the owner of a solar panel installation company claiming the state’s renewable energy sector has produced an estimated 82,600 jobs. Dean Berden, owner of DB Solar in Snover, wrote: “In recent years, Michigan's renewable sector has already seen tremendous growth, with more than an estimated 82,600 jobs in renewable power industries, energy efficiency and other conservation services.” The column links to a report called, “Powering Up Michigan," and attributes the 82,600 jobs number to a 2010 Bureau of Labor and Statistics report. ForTheRecord says: That particular Bureau of Labor Statistics...

    The stench of desperation Let’s say you’ve been in politics for thirty or forty years. You’re crooked, corrupt, and mad with power.

    Semis and school buses. What could go wrong? I don’t even really know what to say about this. Is it insane? Yes. Is it further evidence that this country isn’t really interested in dealing with the threat of homegrown radical Islam? Yes. Is it a painfully obvious recipe for disaster? You bet. However, according to FOX 9 Minneapolis, it’s also the truth. A man whose name appears on the no-fly list thanks to his efforts to radicalize young people has been given a Class-A commercial driver’s license. That allows him to drive large semi-trucks that he can fill with whatever...
