    After Devin Kelley murdered 26 people at a Texas church on Sunday, Gov. Greg Abbott noted that the killer had unsuccessfully sought a concealed handgun license from the state Department of Public Safety (DPS). "So how was it that he was able to get a gun?" Abbott asked in a CNN interview. "By all the facts that we seem to know, he was not supposed to have access to a gun. So how did this happen?" The answer, it turns out, is that Kelley's trouble obtaining a carry permit had nothing to do with the 2012 assault convictions that should...

    Before he killed 26 people, Devin Kelley was sentenced to confinement and discharged from the military. Last week, he ominously showed off an assault rifle on Facebook. Devin Patrick Kelley has been identified as the gunman who killed at least 26 people at a church in Texas, a U.S. official told The Daily Beast. A week before he committed the worst massacre at a place of worship in American history, Kelley posted a photo of a semiautomatic rifle to Facebook with the caption: “She’s a bad bitch.” Kelley entered First Baptist Church at approximately 11:30 a.m., witnesses reported, and opened...

  • THE REAL REASON GEN. ALLEN RESIGNED

    Marine Gen. John Allen, a 1976 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served this country admirably for more than 36 years. Now he has announced he wants to retire. The 59 year-old former top officer in Afghanistan cited his wife's "chronic" illness and said he wants to devote more time to helping his beloved Kathy cope with serious health problems, including an undisclosed "auto-immune disorder." We join the vast majority of Americans who pray the general's wife will get better, and thank him for his service to this country. But one would have to be pathetically naive not to realize...

    "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.

    Nine senators, congressman follow pattern of S&L scandal: contributions and intervention. So here’s the formula. An independent agency of the U.S. government. United States Senators. A powerful campaign contributor to said United States Senators. A powerful campaign contributor who wants something from said independent agency. Add it all together and what you get is — The Keating Five. And the IRS Ten. Let’s start, by way of illustrating how the game worked, with The Keating Five.

    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...

I received the following response to my question from the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) — the union for IRS employees headed by ex-14 year agent Colleen Kelley. The response came from union spokesperson Dina Long. It reads, in its entirety, this: Statement of NTEU On March 31, 2010, NTEU President Colleen M. Kelley attended the White House Forum on Workplace Flexibility at the Old Executive Office Building. The forum was attended by approximately 200...

    Nearly two-thirds of campaign contributions from IRS employees go to Democrats.NTEU president Colleen Kelley The IRS may be “an independent enforcement agency with only two political appointees,” in the words of White House press secretary Jay Carney, but its employees are represented by a powerful, deeply partisan union whose boss has publicly disparaged the Tea Party and criticized the Republican party for having ties to it. The White House continues to insist that profound incompetence, not partisan malice, led the IRS to single out conservative groups applying for nonprofit status. If the testimony of acting commissioner Steven Miller is true,...

    Jeffrey Lord at the American Spectator has reviewed the White House logs looking for a relationship between meetings listed there and the timeline found in the Inspector General’s report on the targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups issued last Tuesday. Lord’s work represents yet another example of alternative media scooping a lazy or negligent establishment press. What Lord has found is that President Barack Obama met with the President of the National Treasury Employees Union Colleen Kelley, on March 31, 2010. The NTEU is “the 150,000 member union that represents IRS employees along with 30 other separate government agencies.”...
