    We don’t know exactly what happened, all we know is that the attack left at least one man down.By all accounts it was an “alcohol fueled” incident related to “nightlife”  shenanigans. Little is known about the perpetrators at this point butt apparently there had been a confrontation between the two groups earlier.Early reports indicate that the wounds, while serious, do not appear to be life-threatening to the body.Even so the whole affair is enough to make a grown man cry.I sure hope they clear this mess on Capital Hill up quickly so we can get back to waging the war...

    Fearing that her popularity among young voters has fallen to a critically low point, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has adopted a so-called “gothic” look to appeal to millennials whom her advisors describe as suffering from angst and alienation. “We were hemorrhaging support to that [expletive] hippie Bernie Sanders, so we put drab ol’ Hillary in front of a mirror and asked ourselves some really tough questions, like if her style really speaks to today’s disaffected youth,” said David Gibbons, a longtime Clinton strategist who, as a high school student in the early 1990s, wore only black and went by the...

    The Daily Caller ^ | Blake Neff
    The former head of Chicago Public Schools (CPS) was indicted Thursday for allegedly participating in a bribery scheme that illegally influenced more than $20 million in city spending. According to the charges against her, ex-CPS CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett steered a no-bid $20.5 million contract to the consulting company SUPES Academy in return for bribes and the promise of a job after she left her post. Prosecutors claim that Byrd-Bennett’s corrupt dealings began in April 2012, when she first arrived in Chicago to work as chief education adviser, and continued for the next three years. U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon said Byrd-Bennett...

    When we read the papers or turn on the television (for those of us who have television), hardly a day or two passes by without the mention of new (or ongoing) actions by the Chinese government in a military capacity. Within the past year alone, China has extended her reach steadily beyond her own territorial waters and nearby sea-lanes. She has participated in numerous exercises, some of them jointly with foreign nations. Anyone can clearly witness her aggressive, outwardly expanding policies regarding territory and flexing her muscle. The most recent maneuver comes on the heels of the Russian actions in...

For a lot of progressives it entails a “a gun-free society.” I know I’m going to sleep better, now that Hilz has finally stated her position on gun control: she thinks it’s time for responsible gun-owners to 'take back' the 2nd amendment from those dangerous, nut-job extremists in the NRA. And she does this while managing to squeeze out a few tears (just to prove her humanity).And just in case you don’t think she’s willing to take on the NRA, let...

It is based on the following theses advanced, overtly or sub silentio, by Imam Obama: Islam is the true Religion of Peace and seeks, for the betterment of all humanity, to eliminate the savagery of false religions. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood are highly respected for their religious and hence peaceful nature and also for dealing fairly but firmly with all enemies of truth and justice. While announcing his courageous presidential initiative vis a vis the Muslim Brotherhood, President Obama also stated that He is reaching...

    Warning: This post will generate massive cognitive dissonance in some readers. If you think you can learn from that, please read on. If that prospect makes you uncomfortable, please don’t read it. — If you compare Donald Trump to whoever you have in mind as your ideal president, Trump probably comes up short. There are plenty of qualities one might want in a president that Trump doesn’t have. So I understand why people think he can’t get elected. But Trump will not be running against anyone’s imaginary standard for president. He will run against real people. That’s where things get...

    The Obama Administration has ordered the last remaining uranium processing facility in the United States to be closed. The final day of operations for the American Centrifuge project in Piketon, Ohio was September 30th. Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) was aghast. “This is beyond belief,” he asserted. “While this administration is green-lighting uranium enrichment in Iran and legitimizing 6,000 Iranian centrifuges, they’re shutting down our only domestic production facility here in America.” Secretary of State John Kerry belittled Wenstrup’s concern. “There are uranium processing facilities in Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Holland,” Kerry said. “If we need any we...

    More than 50 analysts for the Defense Intelligence Agency have complained to the Department of Defense's Inspector General that their reports are being fraudulently altered by "higher ups." The gist of the alterations has been to make the Administration's war against terror appear more successful than it actually is. "For the most part our efforts against ISIS have been ineffective," said one analyst requesting anonymity. "Despite the drone strikes and the President's tough talk, ISIS continues to gain strength. They have seized the American-made weapons abandoned by an Iraqi Army unwilling to fight. ISIS atrocities remain unabated. There is no...

    In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Priscilla Smith, a Director and Senior Fellow at the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School, maintained that dismemberment abortions are “humane.” The procedure entails gripping the child with medical instruments, twisting off limbs one-by-one until the baby bleeds to death and then crushing the head. Asked by Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va) whether such a “humane” procedure would be an appropriate method of executing convicted murderers, Ms. Smith said “no. Even if the condemned individual were sedated tearing him apart would be horrifically barbaric and messy. Rather...

    Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) brought his own armed guards to a Washington DC anti-gun rally sponsored by Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun advocacy group Everytown for America. The Governor saw no irony or hypocrisy in his action. “First of all, DC is a very dangerous place with a high rate of gun related violence,” McAuliffe said. “It would be foolhardy for me to expose myself without having some sort of protection. Second, a governor is no ordinary, expendable average schmo. My elevated position of power makes me a target. I have a right to defend myself against anti-government radicals.” McAuliffe also...

    The Obama Administration brushed off U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer’s ruling that the GOP’s lawsuit against unappropriated spending for health care would proceed. In her decision, Collyer wrote that “the Constitution could not be more clear: ‘No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in consequence of Appropriations made by Law.’ Neither the president nor his officers can authorize appropriations; the assent of the House of Representatives is required before any public monies are spent.” “While the President is disappointed that this errant judge has aided and abetted a GOP political stunt, the ruling will have no impact...

    Dismissing Republican objections that he has failed to comply with the Corker-Cardin law’s requirement that all portions of the deal with Iran must be disclosed to Congress, President Obama proclaimed that the agreement will be implemented next week. “At this point, whether Congress goes along is a moot issue,” Obama declared. “The UN has already approved it. A lower authority cannot overrule this higher authority. Besides, the GOP can’t even get a Senate vote on a resolution to disapprove the deal anyway. So, there’s no way they’re going to stop me.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell concurred, saying that “President...

Why should we be denied the benefits that America or Germany grant to their people?” US President Obama agreed, calling the job of building a new country from the ground up “daunting.

    The Department of Justice says it will not pursue an investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account for the transmission of classified government documents. “On paper it looks like Secretary Clinton broke the law,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted. “Juxtaposed to this, however, we have to consider the fact that President Obama gave his permission for Mrs. Clinton to use her private email system. Since he is the superior and she is the subordinate she cannot be held liable for merely following orders. To do so would seriously degrade discipline, obedience, and loyalty...

    A gaggle of university climatologists have written to President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch urging them to prosecute people who continue to contradict the "scientific consensus" on climate change. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) immediately endorsed the idea as "essential to our survival as a planet." "The freedom of people able to contradict the accepted science impedes the government from taking the steps necessary to combat dangerous climate change," Whitehouse contended. Paraphrasing a famous observation made by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes for justifying suppression of free speech, the Senator averred that "allowing a person to deny the truth...

    In what some are characterizing as a breach of diplomacy, President Obama has invited several prominent critics of Catholic doctrine to his meeting with Pope Francis. Among these controversial invitees are a pro-abortion nun, a transgender woman, a homosexual Episcopal bishop, and two Catholic homosexual activists. The intent of this affront says Press Secretary Josh Earnest “is to make the point that religious doctrine, just like Constitutional law, must evolve to meet evolving social customs and beliefs. High profile leaders like Pope Francis cannot afford to resist these trends if the Church hopes to stay relevant in the 21st century.”...

Nothing is as great a threat as the possibility that the omnibus budget won’t be approved in time to avert a government shutdown.” While not totally dismissing these other dangers, Obama told the business leaders that “these are more distant and dissipated sources of trouble.

The Obama Administration, however, refused to accept responsibility. U.S. Press Secretary Josh Earnest strove to deflect blame by pointing out that “the president’s preference has always been to kill our country’s enemies via drone strikes.

So, I don’t think there are any grounds for complaints.” Although he was unable...

Initially, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina called for the US to resist the Russian initiative by force if necessary.

Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens) averred that “it took a lot of courage for the Rosenburgs to buck the anti-communist hysteria that was sweeping the nation during the post war period. From a parochial perspective, sharing the atom bomb appears traitorous. But from a more ecumenical standpoint it can be seen...

    Here is their leader... There's a recent article in the "Men's Style" section of the New York Times titled 27 Ways to Be a Modern Man.You should never judge a book by its cover, except for now. This is as bad as you'd imagine. Maybe worse. I won't list all 27, just the worst five, with comment. You can see all 27 here and I recommend you do, because it was extremely difficult to pick the worst five. 1. When the modern man buys shoes for his spouse, he doesn’t have to ask her sister for the size. And he...

    In a lecture filled with lies Barry told us yesterday that mass shootings are “something we should politicize,” as if we haven’t. A visibly angry Obama blasted Congress for being unwilling to change the nations (sic) gun laws in response to a wave of mass shootings that have cast a cloud over his presidency. I guess we are all to agree with his flawed logic, submit to his will and by-pass the do-nothing Congress that we elected as stipulated in the Constitution because we need some common sense gun control laws; like repealing the 2nd Amendment. Because, you know, Obama’s...

    Given that we just lost another war that we won (Afghanistan, in case you’ve lost track); and given that Russia’s Vladdy just declared himself king of the mountain in the Middle East and has commenced bombing missions on our allies in Syria, perhaps we should hear from our Secretary of State, Jean Carré. He thinks it’s time to “deconflict” - which is something like “coordinate,” if by “coordinate” you mean “get out of the way.” There seems to be a consensus that Brit Hume summarized the situation best: It’s unclear if this serves as another example of Barry’s propensity for...

    Last week I did a version of this (here) to point out liberals only like Francis as long as he is useful to them. Boy oh boy was I right.

    - The three Chinese curses -May you come to the attention of those in authority May you find what you are looking for May you live in interesting times Last September BHO told us that we would degrade and destroy ISIS, and that he would not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria and Iraq as “this is a core principle of my presidency.” Butt apparently Putin thought 12 months was more than adequate time to implement one of your core principles, so overnight he issued an eviction notice, telling Barry to get his planes and soldiers out...
