    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Summary of Obama’s IRS scandal, as of July 31, 2015 In May 2013, the Washington Post reported that the IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional reviews. Organizations with the words “tea party” or “patriot” were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members. When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees...

    The Golf Channel is promoting Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) appearing on the show “Feherty” on August 3, where he will be discussing the importance of golf in his life, which brings him to tears. Boehner says that President Barack Obama wants to go golfing with him, but they cannot golf together “because everybody gets bent out of shape worried about what we are up to, when all we are really want to do is just play golf.”

    Dallas – McLennan County’s criminal justice community is not trying to “scheme against” defendants in the Twin Peaks shooting, said a lawyer appointed to represent a judge recused in the case. A supplemental pleading to the 10th District Court of Appeals cites those remarks as evidence a gag order is unconstitutional and unworkable, according to the lawyer who filed the court papers. “Mr. (Matthew) Clendennen and his counsel are subject to the gag order entered by the Judge of the 54th District Court, Matt Johnson, and cannot publicly speak to this matter of grave public concern to our justice system....

    Hello all. Asking for more prayers for my father. Today he is at Hopkins to have triple-bypass surgery. This is harrowing enough, as is the thought of "recovery" with them cutting bones for it, but last night I just got a call from my aunt (his sister) and she stated that she and my uncle (brother), who is paralyzed, have a defect in their spines and that my dad should ensure surgeons are aware of this because of possible genetic similarity. I called my parents this morning to tell them (my aunt oddly did not mention it to them). But...

    Sometimes companies seem to appear overnight, or spontaneously come up with a solution to a problem you didn’t even know you had. In these scenarios people should remember that the spotlight only shines on those who have made the grade. The work, pain, risk, heart and drive to get to that point rarely attracts focus. Battle Comp Enterprises, maker of compensators, is one of these companies, although I might be several years too late bringing about that point. Nonetheless, not only did they appear onstage in 2010, but they have managed, against all national economic challenges, to grow and continue...

    My wife is mentally ill. I realize many men say this and most are probably kidding but in my case it is 100% true. Her illness began in 1996 after the birth of our last child. At first we were told it was post-partum depression. She was hospitalized that year several times and given various medications. We’ve never really gone to church much but she began talking about religion quite a bit so I bought her a bible (NKJ) and she devoured it. She was reading it all the time and one day I noticed she was crossing parts out...

Tuesday's vote is not the end of the story, however. According to WREG, the Chancery Court would also have to approve the removal of the remains and Forrest's family would also be involved in the decision. Forrest and his wife are currently buried...

    A teenager has survived after falling 100ft off a cliff then being bitten by a venomous snake at the bottom. Brock Leach, 14, tumbled over a cliff edge and bounced off outcroppings and rocks during his descent - before landing on a ledge. But as he tried to clamber to safety before the tide came in Brock suddenly felt a sharp pain in the hand he'd been using to help pull himself along. He was horrified to discover he had been bitten by an adder - the only native venomous snake in the UK. The fall was witnessed by his...

    Not long ago, I was in the market for a small handgun safe. After visiting a local gun shop and bringing home something made by GunVault, I took my new safe out of its box, and wondered if I’d spent too much. Up close, the device looked insubstantial. A nagging suspicion motivated me to go online, where I quickly discovered research by Marc Tobias and Tobias Bluzmanis of Investigative Law Offices and Security Laboratories. Their work confirmed my suspicion about the safe. It could be broken into easily. Tobias and Bluzmanis, who specialize in evaluating security systems, did an analysis...

Zhou, a factory worker in central China, had his left hand chopped off due to the incident, which involved spinning blade machine. When he was taken to the hospital, his arm and severed hand were badly wounded, leading doctors to decide to graft it to his right ankle. For over a month, the appendage was left there, so the nerves and tendons could heal. "Under...

    There has always been a rule – an overriding rule in the common law, in the criminal justice system and in the insurance industry – that society must not allow you to profit from a crime you committed. For example, if you file an insurance claim on your house, and it’s proven that you burned it down yourself, you get imprisoned for arson and the insurance company gets all the money back. Or if you file for the life insurance on your parent or spouse, and it’s proven that you murdered him or her for the insurance money, you get...

    Today, there are hundreds of thousands of men and women working overseas on various contracts and making good money, probably two to three times what they can make in the United States. On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (it’s higher for 2015). However – and I can’t emphasize this enough – they are earning it! Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria,...

    Women are not a minority in America, gentlemen. There are some 6 million more of them than us – perhaps even a few more since 2010’s census, where that stat comes from. Many female shooters are interested in the shooting sports as well as personal defense. If you are in a gun-related sales field, you would do well to treat them well. If you are a professional trainer, you must be alert to the nuances and differences of the female thought process.

    On July 13, 2015, Barack Obama proudly announced 46 commutations at a federal prison. It’s not unusual for a president to pardon people or commute sentences. Many presidents and governors do so occasionally, hopefully when they are absolutely convinced that the criminal justice system otherwise failed an innocent defendant. There are exceptions, of course. Gerald Ford pardoned his predecessor, Richard Nixon, in a well-intentioned effort to heal the nation after the Watergate “scandal” (though calling any political kerfuffle a “scandal,” in light of the Obama administration’s notorious daily crimes, does seem an abuse of the word). And Bill Clinton used...

    Much has been written on the unconstitutionality and irrationality of the Supreme Court’s Obergefell “same-sex marriage” opinion. Will Governors and officials around the country kowtow to the Court and allow lawless same-sex marriage in states where it was banned? Will they imitate the disgraceful Massachusetts model? Will citizens allow this to happen? The turning point for the radical effort to impose “same-sex marriage” (SSM) on the country was the 2003 Goodridge case in Massachusetts. There, the homosexual activists pioneered using the courts to circumvent the democratic lawmaking process and took advantage of an ambitious Governor to implement their dream. In...

    A coalition of Mexican mayors has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in the U.S. to Mexican border cities, saying the deportations are contributing to Mexican border violence. The request was made at a recent San Diego conference in which the mayors of four Mexican border cities and one U.S. mayor, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, gathered to discuss cross-border issues. Ciudad Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes blamed U.S. deportation policy for contributing to his city's violence, saying that of the 80,000 people deported to Juarez in the past three years,...

    The biggest thing Donald Trump is doing is realigning public perceptions on immigration among the low-information voters, for whom being seen as moderate and reasonable is more important than issue analysis. Up until now, nobody has been able to force the ideas Trump has espoused into the mainstream media. As a result, the perception of what is moderate has drifted to the left, and we have been, up until now, unable to stop it. This part of this book has a good example of the cognitive principle that Trump's rhetoric is affecting in low information voters. P is less committed...

    Race is the viscous grease Al Sharpton uses to lubricate his flim-flam machine. Adding the “Reverend” moniker affords him cover by having a credible partner, i.e., God, who doesn’t want a cut of his ill-gotten gains. And not atypical of race-hucksters, he makes his choices based on what will garner him the most cachet. He is a craven coward who depends upon the likes of Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly to give him credibility. He avoids those such as myself and Dr. James David Manning like a prostitute avoids police. I have publicly challenged Sharpton to debate me for several...

    On Wednesday, July 1, 2015, a young American woman – Kathryn Steinle, age 32 – was shot in the back as she and her father were strolling on a pier in San Francisco. She died in his arms, pleading “Help me, help me!” The facts in the case are plain, and undisputed. We don’t even need to fill the story with the adverb “allegedly,” since the demon who did it has admitted to have done it (though he claims it was accidental, in alternate moments claiming either that the gun went off on its own or that he was just...

    Mention slavery to any American and visions of captured Africans shackled in chains and suffering every kind of abuse known to man comes to mind. While this form of slavery is the most severe, there are other forms and degrees by which one might be condemned to bondage. In western Europe slavery was eventually replaced with serfdom. Serfdom differed from slavery in that it was a voluntary lifetime contract between an individual and a lord that extended into perpetuity. In exchange for the military protection of their lord, and in some cases land to farm, serf’s bound themselves and their...

    Brazil, the Next (Regional or Global) Threat to the U.S. Economic Supremacy? What Chuck Pierce saw about the U.S. and Brazil By Julio Severo In 2008, I met Chuck Pierce. He told me and a group of evangelical leaders in Brazil that God had removed his national anointing from the U.S. in 2008. For me, the confirmation came next year, when Obama (a pro-Islam, pro-sodomy and pro-abortion creature) became the U.S. president. Under his presidency, the U.S. has become the biggest exporter of the homosexual ideology in the world. Pierce also said that God was looking for another nation...
  • The media just allowed a bogus AP hit job on Cosby to happen.

    Wow. The media just allowed a bogus AP hit job on Cosby to happen. He did not admit to what AP insinuates he did. It editorializes with commentary from the PLAINTIFF'S LAWYER. It also notes that two other women took quaaludes voluntarily. At NO TIME does Cosby state that he gave *anything* to *anyone* involuntarily. A question that is unanswered because of an objection means NOTHING. It is NOT an admission of anything, folks. They want you to leap to a conclusion unsupported by any evidence. This is NOT a smoking gun. He admitted that he took quaaludes for sex,...

    The Waco secret of the day is the surveillance video shot by the Don Carlos Mexican Restaurant in the Central Texas Market Place in Waco on May 17. Dallas Attorney Clint Broden wants a copy. Recent escapees from Syrian prisons need to know that there was a big news event in that shopping center that Sunday around lunch time. Some arbitrary number of people, some number in the low two hundreds, were detained. One hundred seventy-nine people were arrested. A couple of them were let out of jail that night. Police announced there were about 160 arrests. Eventually, after a...
