    The former head of the Milwaukee FBI office twice scolded subordinates for talking to investigators, and in one case urged an agent to commit perjury, a Department of Justice report finds. Staff from the Office of the Inspector General concluded that former Milwaukee Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson most likely lied to them when they questioned her. They also found she may have broken federal law by telling an agent to lie under oath. The Justice Department declined to prosecute Carlson, and the FBI refuses to say if she has been disciplined. She remains in a high-ranking job, as...

    The lone gunman who killed six Sikh worshippers at a Gurudwara in Wisconsin was motivated by hate and this makes the incident even more tragic, Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate said today. "The tragedy in Wisconsin, where the Sikh temple was invaded by a gunman who was motivated by hate, racial hate, religious hate that makes it even more tragic, and tragic too to have a people that are known for their peaceability and their loving nature to be so brutally attacked," Romney said at a campaign event in Des Moines, Iowa. "We're thinking of them. Our hearts go...

    "You....You...Right-Wing Hate Monger, You! Why don't you and your Klan buddies go iron your sheets! The only reason why you and your Nazi friends in the Tea Party hate Obama so much is because he's black!" If you don't hear this crap at least once a day as a Conservative, you're simply not fighting the good fight. Like all real Conservatives, if I got a dollar every time I was called a racist for believing in limited Constitutional government, I'd be a millionaire with a Swiss bank account, sort of like DNC Chairthing Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Sadly, the rules don't work...

    Amardeep Kaleka was not surprised his father tried to stop a gunman at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. "It's an amazing act of heroism, but it's also exactly who he was," Amardeep said of Satwant Singh Kaleka, 65, one of six community members killed Sunday. "There was no way in God's green Earth that he would allow somebody to come in and do that without trying his best to stop it." The six killed in Sunday's attack were identified by police as five men -- Kaleka, president of the temple in Oak Creek; Sita Singh, 41; Ranjit Singh, 49; Prakash...
