    "Well, look, there's nothing like the warm embrace of the mainstream media," Sen. Ted Cruz told Fox New Tuesday night, after various liberal media outlets bashed him as a "scary," "dangerous," "slimy" no-compromiser with a "hardline conservative message." For starters. The day after announcing his presidential ambitions, Cruz told Megyn Kelly one of his "favorite comments" came from the New York Times, which said that Cruz could not be swayed by the Washington elites, who hate him. "And I have to admit, my immediate thought was, holy cow, do I have to disclose that to the Federal Election Commission (the...

    A grand jury subpoena released late Friday by the state Auditor’s Office shows that the U.S. Department of Justice sought documents about a part-time technical writer who used to work with state Auditor Troy Kelley in a business that tracked loan and real estate documents. The federal subpoena requested email conversations between Jason Jerue and other auditor’s office employees relating to Jerue’s past employment at Post Closing Department, Kelley’s company that became embroiled in a lawsuit with a former client, Old Republic Title. The subpoena, which was served on the Auditor’s Office March 6, also requested emails between Jerue and...

    A TAMPA, Florida, socialite and her husband claimed in a lawsuit that the government willfully leaked false and defamatory information about them in the scandal that led to the resignation of David Petraeus as CIA director. Jill Kelley and Scott Kelley filed the lawsuit in federal court against the FBI, Pentagon and unidentified officials in the government, claiming the couple's privacy was violated. It was Jill Kelley who became the focus of national media attention last year after it was revealed she received anonymous emails from Paula Broadwell, Mr Petraeus' biographer and mistress.

    The IRS has admitted to harassing conservative groups seeking tax exempt status, singling out for extra special scrutiny organizations which featured “patriot” or “tea party” designations in their name. We now know that a number of these groups were forced to withdraw their applications, being unable or unwilling to continue what in some cases had become a 3 year battle with the corrupt federal agency. But few in the media have bothered to ask who directed the IRS to engage in this criminal behavior. It has been reported that Senators Chuck Schumer and Al Franken addressed a letter to IRS...

The weapons, which are also to be installed at other facilities in the Energy Department complex, were displayed Thursday by Linton Brooks, head of the National Nuclear Security Administration. Brooks called the new weapons a way to make sure any attempt to storm the nuclear weapons lab is unsuccessful.

The charges grew out of a two-year federal and state investigation of the McNamara administration. The jury found Wilbourne Kelley III, 68, and wife Barbara Kelley, 56, guilty of extortion, bribery, conspiracy and lying to the FBI. Barbara Kelley also was convicted of money-laundering.

    Of all the issues ripe for further investigation in the scandal over the leak of Democratic strategy memos from the Senate Judiciary Committee last year, the least relevant is whether GOP staffers "stole" the documents. That's the charge Democrats have so far successfully made to deflect attention from the memos' actual content. On this point alone, the Justice Department's decision this week to open a criminal investigation into the matter could turn out to be useful. David Kelley, the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, and a Democrat, has been tapped to lead the probe. We doubt Mr. Kelley is going to...
