    DETROIT (AP) - Fifteen people have been charged in an investigation of how Flint's water became contaminated with lead in 2014-15 and a related outbreak of Legionnaires' disease. Seven people have pleaded no contest to misdemeanors in deals that will leave them without a criminal record.

    Dear Pope Francis, I write this not only as a conservative, but as a Catholic. It’s time to give it a rest and get your house in order. There isn’t a week that goes by without some kind of declaration from you condemning western civilization for some ill somewhere. Climate change, income inequality, health care, you name it and you’ve weighed in on it, and always on the left. No offense, and don’t take this the wrong way, but riding a bike to lower your “carbon footprint” never saved anyone’s soul. A lot of what you spend your time condemning...
  • Congress' Use of Sex Hush Fund Violates Campaign Finance Law & is Embezzlement of Taxpayer Funds

    If Mueller's witch hunt is dumb enough to try and take down Trump by claiming that hush money paid to the two women was a campaign finance law violation, then Mueller must also go after all the Congressmen who secretly used taxpayer funds to silence claims against them of sexual harassment. Such a secret use of taxpayer funds is also embezzlement and they all should be prosecuted.

    RUSH: Michael Cohen has begged a federal judge for mercy after his guilty plea. I should tell you, Paul Sperry, who writes for the New York Post and Real Clear Politics, took a look. He did a deep dive into Cohen’s plea that has been publicized by Mueller. We’ll link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. I’d have to read the whole thing to you, basically get in the weeds, but his conclusion is that this plea deal actually exonerates Trump, but that that’s not the way Mueller is gonna end up reporting this. Now, Rudy Giuliani is out joining the criticism...

    California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters is certainly no stranger to controversy and scandal. In fact, she wallows in it. Waters strikes me as someone who believes she is above the law and can get away with whatever she wants. It’s one of the reasons she is seen as one of the most corrupt politicians in Congress. A new complaint has been filed against Waters and it and the new unfolding scandal surrounding the complaint has the potential to finish off her career. The complaint involves an obscure fundraising tactic that has raked in thousands of dollars from state politicians in...

    **SNIP** The cover-up has been so effective that this isn't happening. Imran Awan, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)'s I.T. aide, got off without jail time or restitution on only bank fraud charges. Congress got off without paying the price for possible corruption and for allowing a spy ring to run free in Congress. We can't even be sure that Congress has made the necessary reforms to stop another spy ring from infiltrating and spying on Congress and thereby using stolen data to blackmail a congressman, influence a vote, or just know where members of Congress stand on various pieces of...

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, for producing revelations of sexual misconduct allegations aimed at U.S. Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh after her committee questioned Kavanaugh. Pirro questioned the timing of the release of the allegations and noted that Feinstein passed on opportunities to question Kavanaugh on the subject.

    The Francis Show in Palermo… The Blessing that Wasn’t: Francis omits “Papal” Benediction because it could offend Non-Catholics On Saturday, Sep. 15, the Francis Show made a stop in Sicily, with the “Pope” visiting the dioceses of Piazza Armerina and Palermo. As always, Francis had a lot to say, cranking out such incredible nuggets of wisdom as, “Those belonging to the mafia are not living as Christians”, and, “…those who give themselves find the meaning of life and win” (source). The Vatican web site has posted the entire program of the trip to Sicily here. One of the highlights of...

    Edward Feser's Blog ^ | Wednesday, September 5, 2018 | Edward Feser
    There are five considerations that seem to me to make it very likely that Archbishop Viganò's testimony is truthful. To be sure, given how numerous and detailed are the claims he makes, it would not be surprising if he has gotten certain particulars wrong. And perhaps in his passion he has inadvertently overstated things here and there. But the main claims are probably true. I certainly do not believe he is lying. The reasons are these: The deafening silence of Pope FrancisThe apparent silence of Pope BenedictArchbishop Viganò's concern for his own place in history and his immortal soulPope Francis’s...
