    Was the real reason behind Senator Elizabeth Warren’s outrage over Mick Mulvaney’s appointment as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) about her own political survival? The New York Post’s Paul Sperry reports that the CFPB is engaged in a wide-variety of corruption. Everything from amassing secret ledgers to using penalties to ‘launder,’ funds into left-wing causes. Of course, because the CFPB operates independently of the U.S. Government, a full audit of the agency’s balance sheet have never been done. This sad reality may very well change under Mulvaney’s leadership.

    You should never pull a gun on a war veteran. Thieves, robbers, general people up to no good: don’t try to pull anything on someone who’s prepared and packing heat. See what happens when a burglar attempts to rob a store clerk who is also a war veteran and knows how to handle intense situations. In the video, the robber walks straight up to the counter, takes a drag from his cigarette, and immediately pulls his gun out and says, “You need to give me all your money.” He was probably thinking a simple “Stop N’ Rob” That was a...

During that process, I don't know if my face hit the register or hit the ground - because he has a scar on his head and I have a big old bloody nose now."

    A lawyer for an Alabama inmate put to death by lethal injection said Friday she is concerned his trembling limbs and labored breathing were an indication something “was not right” with the procedure. Robert Melson, 46, was pronounced dead at 10:27 p.m. CDT Thursday at a southwest Alabama prison, authorities said. Melson’s attorneys had filed a flurry of last-minute appeals seeking to stay the execution, arguing that the state planned to use a sedative that would not reliably render Melson unconscious before other drugs stopped his longs and heart. In December, an Alabama man coughed and heaved for the first...
