    When we talk about growing violence in America’s larger cities we frequently focus on New York and Baltimore. (And for good reason, to be honest.) But the nation’s capital has been experiencing its own problems along those lines lately. A rather chilling recounting of some of these “local stories” provides the backdrop for a recent op-ed column in the WaPo by Colbert I. King. I’ll confess that some of the stories of violence and mayhem King is talking about were completely unknown to me, leading the author to compare Washington to “the wild west.” One example is the case where...

Whats truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama and Democrats will not use the instruments of government to destroy one of their own.

    "..................In my book, if you are pissing off liberals this much, you must be doing something right.The problem for the Left as it concerns Walker is that he is a tough cookie to crack. One Democrat in Wisconsin said that despite the situation and how dire it may seem for him, he always responds with a wink or a smile.Of course, Walker would not be the only Republican to be flirting with what they refer to as racist ethno-nationalists. Since most of their accusations and proof is rooted in code words and dog whistles, ethno-nationalist is a Leftist code word...

    The summer has not been kind to Hillary Clinton. The drip-drip-drip of revelations about her possible misuse and mishandling of classified information threatens to become a deluge in the fall. They have taken a serious toll on her reputation and even more notably, her treatment by liberal media figures who surely would rather she be elected even if the Risen Christ were to be the Republican nominee. Democrats are worried so worried five donors who raised millions for President Obama as well as Obamas chief Florida strategist have both sworn off Hillary and joined an effort to draft...

    IT was snowing in Maine on Jan. 9. Id been to the dentists the day before. The staff there were pleasant enough when I changed genders 12 years ago. Well just change your forms, the receptionist had said, cheerfully. Its no problem. That day, Papi Edwards, 20, a transgender woman of color, was shot to death outside a hotel in Louisville, Ky. If youd told me in 2000, as a transgender woman just coming out, that I was a person of privilege, Id have angrily lectured you about exactly how heavy the burden Id been carrying was. It had nearly...

    "The reports about my race, about my past, and about the pain I've endured are all lies," wrote King, who blogs at the Daily Kos. "I refuse to speak in detail about the nature of my mother's past, or her sexual partners, and I am gravely embarrassed to even be saying this now, but I have been told for most of my life that the white man on my birth certificate is not my biological father and that my actual biological father is a light-skinned black man," he said.
