    Some public officials leave office as far behind the knowledge curve as when they entered it. "One recent analysis found that 95 percent of the jobs created since 2008 required some post-secondary education or training," outgoing U. S. Secretary of Education John B. King, Jr. declared at the Center for American Progress (CAP) last Wednesday. "Think about that." "If you didn't finish high school—or even if you graduated—you can knock on 95 doors looking for a job before one opens. And everyone else without higher education will be trying to squeeze through those last five doors alongside you." It's a...

FNC notably saw a substantial bump at the 7:00 pm, EST time slot, now occupied by former “Fox & Friends” host...

    Just a random thought for the day...I believe there's a good possibility that had JFK, Jr. not died, he may very well have become POTUS by now...or possibly be Trump's opponent this time around.

    Of the 32 names on this year's Hall of Fame ballot, only two were approved Wednesday by baseball writers to join the immortals inside Cooperstown: Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza. They're two iconic sluggers of the 1990s with 1,057 homers between them, whose paths will cross again when they're inducted July 24. Griffey, on his first ballot, earned 99.3 percent of the vote, a total that surpasses Tom Seaver's record of 98.84 in 1992. Griffey missed three ballots. Piazza, in his fourth Hall of Fame campaign, received 83 percent, up from the 69.9 percent that left him outside of...

    NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt, Jr. opened up in a recent interview, discussing his strong opinions about the Confederate flag. When topic was raised by reporters at the Sonoma Raceway on Friday, the 40-year-old stock car driver did not bite his tongue when supporting the need to remove it. “I think it’s offensive to an entire race. It does nothing for anybody to be there flying, so I don’t see any reason.” Dale Earnhardt, Jr. further identified the one place where he feels the Confederate flag belongs and should remain. “It belongs in the history books and that’s about it.” USA...

    There should be people going to jail over the IRS targeting conservatives like this. Sarah Palin’s brother, Chuck Heath Jr., posted this note on Facebook on January 11, 2014: My father, who worked multiple jobs and faithfully and honestly paid his taxes for fifty years, had never heard a word from the IRS. In 2008, his daughter was tapped to run for vice president of the United States. Since that time, he has been, in his words “horribly harassed” six times by the agency. They’ve tried to dig up something on him but he’s always operated above board. Government...

    The man under FBI investigation for making violent threats against Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was inspired to encourage violence by Democratic Party messaging efforts. Troy Gilmore, Jr., who identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Navy, is under FBI investigation for possible violent threats on Twitter against Republican senator Cruz. The FBI has communicated with Gilmore as part of the investigation and is monitoring for possible violence inspired by Gilmore’s online writings. “Given this is a security matter, all I can say is that we have notified the appropriate authorities of the threats,” Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told...

    Christians in the United States are witnessing a subtle but mounting transformation in our relationship with the American empire. Some would say the changes are not so subtle. Believers have enjoyed an enviable status throughout the history of this country, largely due to our own efforts in helping to secure certain liberties during it’s founding decades. These “unalienable Rights” were seen, not as rights created by Government, but as gifts given to mankind by the Creator. The Bill of Rights, for example, was composed in order to impel the government to secure rights which already existed. This climate of liberty...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (D., Ohio) has asked a federal judge to show leniency in the sentencing of former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D., Ill.), describing him as the “highlight of our karaoke nights” in a letter, the Huffington Post reports: “Not only is he highly intelligent, he is charming and entertaining,” Fudge wrote. “When things got tough or extremely difficult on the House floor, we could count on Jesse to bring levity to an otherwise daunting situation with a bad joke or a one-man skit. Jesse was the highlight of our karaoke nights and always made everyone feel like...

    Sources with knowledge of the probe told the Chicago Sun-Times that investigators believe Jackson had learned of the federal scrutiny of his financial activity prior to his June 10 leave from Congress. The sources said it didn’t necessarily mean the tip was from an investigative source, saying it was possible the congressman received a tip from someone who was notified about the probe, possibly through a subpoena. While Jackson, a South Shore Democrat, eventually released information concerning his health, he did not publicly disclose he had knowledge of the federal probe until last Wednesday — the day he submitted a...

    CHICAGO — A few years ago, the political career of Representative Jesse L. Jackson Jr. was soaring. His appeal had long since crossed race and class lines — a Barack Obama before anyone heard of Barack Obama — and he seemed destined for a political future that could reach higher and wider than that of his father, the civil rights leader and former presidential candidate whose name he shared. But Mr. Jackson’s prospects have tumbled precipitously since the end of 2008. Most recently, Mr. Jackson, 47, has been absent from Congress since June 10, and in the last few weeks...
