  • Bill and Hillaryís sleazy road to riches (exploiting the presidency was key)

    Everything about the Clintonís sleazy drive to enrich themselves is a 2011 memo, ex-presidential aide Doug Band openly boasted about raising millions for the foundation from his business clientsóand even more for Bill Clinton personally. Bandís 13-page memo actually described the arrangement heíd set up as ďBill Clinton Inc.Ē ó ďdedicating myselfĒ to helping the Clintons use their government service to feather their own nest. And what a gravy train: Bandís clients at his Teneo consulting firm were pressed to give millions to the foundation ó and millions more to Bill. Teneo had raised $8M for the foundation and...

    The unavoidable truth is that many are becoming desensitized. When the Holy Spirit no longer fills hearts and minds with a passion for purity and holiness, there is a general lack of conviction. Compromise in this area can be well-illustrated through a story I heard years ago. Eskimos in the barren North often kill wolves by taking a razor-sharp knife and dipping it in blood. They allow the blood to freeze to the blade. Then they bury the handle of the knife in the snow with the blade exposed. As the wolf begins to lick the blade, his tongue becomes...
  • Yoga instructor accuses Donald Trump of sexual misconduct

    That didn't take long. A day after the final presidential debate of the 2016 campaign, a yoga instructor and lifestyle coach appeared at a news conference to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. Fighting back tears, 45-year-old Karena Virginia became the 10th woman to accuse the Republican presidential candidate of inappropriate behavior. She alleged that in 1998, Trump walked up to her at the U.S. Open tennis tournament, grabbed her arm, and then touched her breast, according to NBC News. "I was in shock. I flinched. 'Don't you know who I am? Don't you know who I am?' That's what...
  • FAIL: Gloria Allred tries to harm Trump, hurts Hillary Clinton instead?

    Sigh. But take heart! Instead of just having feelings of disgust over the thought of Gloria Allred in the spotlight once again, you can add some giggles to the mix. Because, while she is trying to harm Donald Trump, is she really harming Hillary Clinton instead? Signs point to yes:

    Donít call it corruption. Call it Ö a confluence of interests. In other words, whatever interested the Clintons became what interested the State Department. A new series of e-mails emerging from FOIA lawsuits and reported by the Wall Street Journal show how Clinton Foundation interests took precedence over matters of state during Hillary Clintonís tenure: On Jan. 27, 2011, Clinton Foundation Chief Operating Officer Laura Graham sent an email to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clintonís chief of staff Cheryl Mills, voicing concern about a rumor. Ms. Graham had heard that Foggy Bottom was thinking about revoking the U.S. visa of...

    Attorney General Roy Cooper, who is challenging Gov. Pat McCrory for governor, spoke out against House Bill 2 Tuesday morning during a press conference. Cooper said his office, "will not defend the constitutionality of the discrimination in House Bill 2." McCrory signed the bill, called the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, last Wednesday after it was passed by the North Carolina Senate. The law was in response to Charlotte's nondiscrimination ordinance that allowed transgender individuals to use public bathrooms of the sex with which they identify.

    Let me begin with this. If the National Enquirer wrote a story about me cheating on my wife with five women, I had better be extremely definitive in my response; because if Iím not, my wife Ėsmelling the guilt Ė would kick my ass. OK, let me also tell you that I wouldnít be angry; in fact, Iíd be ecstatic. Itís fun to count money from guaranteed punitive and compensatory damages in a multimillion dollar lawsuit. But thatís me. I canít speak for Senator Ted Cruz except to say that so far his reaction seems ówell, not exactly definitive. He...

    Like everyone who cares about the survival of America instead of the survival of the Republican Party and the jobs of a few hundred leeches in and around Washington, I carefully weigh each new bit of news regarding the candidates. I am a Donald Trump supporter so I am concerned with what happens on the Republican side of the arena. The Democrat side has its own problems as they are running headlong toward nominating either a Communist or a Felon with an indictment hanging over her head. The most important news this past week was the revelation that Ted Cruz...

    Chill out people! Everybody is churning out sleaze, and it needs to stop. We are better than this! I've seen all sorts of sleazy attacks directed at both candidates, and this is just wrong. People keep repeating the most unmitigated crap about the candidates to the extent that they have completely forgotten about being fair minded. If it's against the other guy, they repeat it, even if it is silly. So many people seem to have lost the ability to think critically, and have seemingly turned into a gaggle of emotional hate-spewing babies. It's not good for the Party, it's...

    So, listen, to get this out of the way, I am sure there are a lot of Donald Trump supporters who are not garbage human beings. I am sure there are quite a lot of them who just quite frankly donít know about the abominable things heís done since he started this campaign (including his mockery of a disabled reporter, his likening Ben Carson to a child molester, his multiple intentional lies about his own past positions, his open courting of white supremacists, or his lengthy history of supporting Democrats, including Hillary Clinton). Some (many?) of his supporters just see...

    A new report suggests Texas Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz has had several mistresses over the years. As the GOP presidential race between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump got personal this week, Ted Cruz wagged his finger at television cameras Thursday, warning Trump to leave his wife, Heidi, out of the fray. That was after Trump posted an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz on his Twitter page. But Cruz' wife isn't his problem now. A new report by the National Enquirer says private investigators have revealed at least five mistresses the sanctimonious senator has been hiding. The affairs include...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is criticizing Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz for what he calls "low-life, sleazy politics." Huckabee, who suspended his presidential campaign after a poor performance in Iowa, attacked Cruz's campaign for telling people on the night of the caucuses that rival Ben Carson would be dropping out of the race. "I can attest to the fact that even in our campaign there were many efforts to try and say that people shouldn't vote for me or Rick Santorum or Ben Carson," Huckabee said on his podcast this week, Buzzfeed News reported. "The Cruz people said it...

    When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) last month mocked Donald Trump‚Äės "New York values," it wasn‚Äėt entirely clear what he was implying. This week we got a clue: For Cruz, "New York" is another way of saying "Jewish." At an event in New Hampshire, Cruz, the Republican Iowa caucuses winner, was asked about campaign money he and his wife borrowed from Goldman Sachs. Cruz, asserting that Trump had "upward of $480 million of loans from giant Wall Street banks," said: "For him to make this attack, to use a New York term, it‚Äės the height of chutzpah." Cruz, pausing for laughter...

    Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump late Wednesday declined to attack Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the wake of news that the Texas senator misreported campaign finances, but did acknowledge that it was a "very big thing." "Well, I heard it's a big thing. I know nothing about it. But I hear it's a very big thing," Trump said in an interview on Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect." "I hope he solves it. I think he's a nice guy, and I hope he gets it solved." Trump has previously attacked GOP primary rivals for being bought by big donors, flouting his...

    (Reuters) - The White House on Thursday said legislation was not necessary to settle so-called "net neutrality" rules because the Federal Communications Commission had the authority to write them. Republicans in Congress are trying to drum up support for a bill that would counter the FCC's upcoming new rules. The Obama administration's comments, while not entirely rebuffing the legislative effort, could make some Democrats wary of joining it. "In terms of legislation, we donít believe itís necessary given that the FCC has the authorities that it needs under Title II," a White House official told Reuters. "However, we always remain...
