    I have a buddy in rural Illinois who is living with and helping out his elderly mom, and he likes to cook. He cooks up a storm. They both enjoy the food. The house they are in has begun to display a very bad bedbug infestation. Both my buddy's mom and my buddy are freaking out. They don't have a lot of money but they are about to call Orkin. I stopped to think about the science of bedbugs. Both my buddy and I did a lot of online research after discovering the infestation. But I think I have a...

    Three suspensions at the Independent Journal Review have robbed the publication of what should have been a great week for it. Only one member of the press accompanied Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Asia recently and she was from IJR. Her big moment has been overshadowed, however, by the suspension of three of her colleagues: writer Kyle Becker, content editor Becca Lower, and Chief Content Officer Benny Johnson. (You know Johnson’s name because he got fired at Buzzfeed for plagiarism.) The post that caused the suspensions came after a Hawaiian judge blocked portions of Donald Trump‘s second travel ban....

    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    Social Security... The SSI program. Liberals hail it as the toast of socialism. Liberals promulgate SSI as proof that government cares. The social secuirty program cares, the program is there to help those who cannot help themselves and that welfare state is superior to Christian charity. According to New York Times columnist and leftist Charles Blow, "Social security is the gift of Washington to the American people. It is what makes America a higher standard in freedom and prosperity." Just like everything printed by the Bolshevik News media including the Times and its left wing mouth pieces, nothing could be...

    FBI Director James Comey once again found himself sitting in a room full of angry congressmen and eager reporters on Monday, when he testified before the House Intelligence Committee about the agency’s investigation into the alleged Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Comey confirmed the FBI has been investigating potential links between President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government. The investigation “includes whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russian efforts,” said Comey, who also announced because much of the information involved is classified, he couldn’t “say more about whose conduct we are investigating.” Comey’s latest...

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Monday during the confirmation hearing for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, that Roe v. Wade is now a “super precedent” that cannot be changed. Feinstein argued that Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, is “settled law” and could not be overturned by the Supreme Court in the future. “The Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld Roe’s court finding, making it settled law for the last 44 years,” she said, citing 14 cases where the high court upheld...

Dana replied, “The position that I’ve always held as a limited-government conservative is that it’s completely not hypocritical (to...

Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) explained Sunday on “Fox News Sunday” that based on all of the evidence his committee has so far investigated, he cannot conclude that there was any collusion whatsoever between Trump’s campaign and the Russians. When asked by host Chris Wallace if there is any evidence to suggest collusion, Nunes replied, “I’ll give you a very simple answer: ‘No.'” “Up to speed on everything I have up to this...

    For some reason, the GOP believes if they go about things in a similar fashion as Democrats, but do them as Republicans, the outcome will be different. Let’s just say there are a lot of short attention spans in D.C. As you’ve noticed, the American Health Care Act (Trumpcare/Obamacare Lite/Ryancare) has received incredibly sharp criticism from all sides, and rightly so. Speaker Paul Ryan tried to sell it to us in a Powerpoint presentation last week, which didn’t go over so well. During that attempt he even said “This is the closest we will ever get to repealing and replacing...

Given that there appears to be nothing embarrassing about the return whatsoever, and the world is laughing at Maddow, my money’s on Trump being the leaker. It’s probably the most favorable return for his narrative in existence. So: he leaks it, hoping this will end the controversy for good — and change the subject from all this CBO/TrumpCare talk.

    Relying upon a technique rarely seen in political journalism these days, anonymous and nebulously described sources, BuzzFeed, hot off its tour de force in releasing the Trump “dossier” now has another scoop? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — which Trump said he would rescind on day one — is rough political terrain for the White House. Conservative media and elected officials see it as a rare hardline immigration promise the administration hasn’t kept, and the White House is kicking it down the road for as long as officials can. But according to two sources who regularly speak with...

    After some intial discussion about marijuana legalization, Hewitt tosses this in from what seems, at least to me, left field: HEWITT: Now let me switch to the Department itself, Mr. Attorney General. It had a bad eight years. I’m a proud veteran of the Department of Justice, as you are. But the IRS case, the Fast and Furious case, Secretary Clinton’s server, the Department of Justice came under great criticism. How about an outside counsel, not connected to politics, to review the DOJ’s actions in those matters with authority to bring charges if underlying crimes are uncovered in the course...

    Clumps of cells. Products of conception. Contents of uterus. The abortion industry has a lot of terms they use to avoid stating the obvious: it’s an unborn baby. In a new video from LiveAction, a former Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer says that they all knew the truth. They know these aren’t just clumps of cells. Thayer goes on to discuss the way they hide information from the mothers and the horrible way they dispose of the bodies.

    Speaker Ryan dropped a bombshell on every person who has ever voted Republican since 2010 because of the chance to repeal Obamacare: Follow POLITICO ✔ @politico .@SpeakerRyan: “This is the closest we will ever get to repealing and replacing Obamacare” http://politi.co/2lITgKG 6:40 PM - 9 Mar 2017 32 32 Retweets 35 35 likes Wow. Their steaming pile of crap, Obamacare Lite, (NON-REPEAL), “World’s Greatest Healthcare Plan of 2017” — No, I’m not even joking with that moniker — is apparently the best thing Republicans can offer after years of promising to repeal Obamacare. Thank you, Republicans. Thank you for proving...

    That didn’t take long. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has already released a statement, on his website, condemning the newly proposed House GOP replacement bill for Obamacare. “This is not the Obamacare repeal bill we’ve been waiting for. It is a missed opportunity and a step in the wrong direction,” Sen. Lee said. “We promised the American people we would drain the swamp and end business as usual in Washington. This bill does not do that. We don’t know how many people would use this new tax credit, we don’t know how much it will cost, and we don’t know if...
  • Idea! Let's fight each other! (vanity)

    Thinking back to those wonderful days last October when it looked like we might lose the POTUS, the SCOTUS and the SOTUS I think it appropriate now that we find, and fight about, any differences we have about the way forward. If, in the end, it looks like we can only get 75 or 80 or 90 or 99% of what we want then let's kill everyone, burn the place down and salt the earth where it was. Let's fight each other! And if no one will fight us then lets fight ourselves!!

    Disarm techniques have been taught to many law enforcement, military and in self defense courses. In the defensive tactics mindset, it is taught you never look for a disarm. If you do, its best to use your own firearm to disarm a bad guy. Disarms itself are accidental if not incidental. Disarms are not that complicated its a matter of determination and self preservation being the primary motivator. Watch as this security camera footage captures the tables turning on a would-be thief. See the footage here.

    Here's a short piece of audio written, voiced and produced by our friend who wishes to remain unnamed for his family's sake, although there will be those who recognize his professional voice. Men who have fought for our country will relate the most to this, and the rest of us will appreciate it. Our friend isn't versed in creating and posting videos on You Tube, so I made this one for him, and for anyone, to share. The photograph is mine that I took this morning of our front porch flag (so no copyright issues on it, either).

    It seems like MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski thinks a female journalist’s place is behind the anchor desk and not flaunting her “long legs and short skirts” in front of viewers. The “Morning Joe” co-host ripped into the women on Fox News’s “Outnumbered” after the show’s co-host, Harris Faulkner, called Brzezinski “emotional” for her criticism of President Trump.
