Why An Unsatisfactory
Recovery Keeps Getting Worse

In November 2013, prosecutors in Nashville were apparently frustrated by a defense attorney´s repeated reference to them as "the government." As USA Today points out (h/t National Review), it was an aggravated burglary case where the lawyer for the defense, the aptly named Drew Justice, was chastised to the judge by written motion to force Mr. Justice to stop using what the state called an intentionally derogatory slur, "meant to make the State´s attorney seem oppressive and inflame the jury." Being a serious criminal case, bias is nothing to easily dismiss on either side, but the defense´s motion in response

Dear Reader (and all my friends at sea), Forgive me readers, it’s been three weeks since my last “news”letter. So, as Bill Clinton hopes to say to a new crop of White House interns in 2017, be gentle with me, I’m rusty. I don’t mean to make light of the confessional, but I have been thinking lately (“That must be a new sensation for you,” — The Couch). It seems to me that the Internet is taking the place of God for a lot of people. I always liked the old line, “Character is what you do when only God is watching.” The alternate version,

Where is the Coverage of Juanita Broaddrick?

The liberal media feeding frenzy about a quarter-century-old alleged marital rape involving GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, and former wife Ivana, has a fury that was strangely absent when Bill Clinton was credibly accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978 when William Jefferson Clinton was attorney general of Arkansas. Ivana says her alleged “rape” never happened, Juanita Broaddrick says hers did. So why aren’t Hillary and Bill being peppered with questions about it as Donald and Ivana are? Perhaps because unlike liberal nemesis Trump’s case, Clinton’s more credidble story is now considered “old



St. Louis and Baltimore Face Record Homicide

The St. Louis homicide rate is on target to reach its highest level in 20 years. This comes after the anti-police riots by Ferguson #BlackLivesMatter protesters last year. The story made international headlines. Now St. Louis city is experiencing a record number of homicides. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reported: "The bodies are found on downtown streets and neighborhood alleys. Near O’Fallon Park in the north, and Gravois Park in the south. Their number is tallied nearly every morning. Two, three, four — sometimes more. With the homicide rate on target to reach its highest level in 20 years, St. Louis police are coming under increasing pressure.

Iran’s foreign minister:
Israel should disarm, too

Now that Iran has agreed to curb its nuclear program, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says it’s time for Israel to follow suit and abandon its long-rumored nuclear arsenal. “Iran’s push for a ban on weapons of mass destruction in its regional neighbourhood has been consistent,” Zarif wrote in an editorial for the Guardian. “And while Iran has received the support of some of its Arab friends in this endeavour, Israel — home to the Middle East’s only nuclear weapons programme — has been the holdout.” The nuclear deal signed in Vienna by Iran and the P 5 + 1 countries earlier this

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children. Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation. Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for

WASHINGTON — Sometimes it seems that political campaigns never end. In the case of some committees raising money for congressional campaigns, that´s literally true. Even after members of Congress leave office, their campaign committees often keep churning along. In fact, three committees are still active even though the lawmakers that started them have died. At least 141 former members of Congress retain campaign accounts containing a total of more than $46 million, a USA TODAY analysis found. Twenty are linked to campaign committees with more than $500,000 each. Nearly one-third of the ex-lawmakers have been out of office at least five years. The



Lincoln vs. Lee: How History is

Social engineers have a knack for destroying history, then self-servingly reshaping it to align with political agendas for consumption by the masses. The results of their skill are no better exemplified than we are currently witnessing. Confederate history is quite literally being destroyed, as monuments to Robert E. Lee and other Confederate heroes are being defaced by ignorant vandals who know nothing more than the legend of how Abraham Lincoln and his brave Union army crushed Jefferson Davis’ and Robert E. Lee’s Southern hordes in the name of liberating enslaved blacks. That this is legend is in no way true makes it

Turns out Obamacare is
a government takeover

During the legislative debate over the passage of President Obama´s healthcare law, supporters of the program were sensitive to any suggestion that it represented a government takeover of the healthcare system. Back in 2010, PolitiFact branded the charge that Obamacare was a "government takeover" as its "lie of the year." But as time has gone on, it´s become clear that the critics of Obamacare were correct about the government´s role under the program – a reality that was reinforced by new federal data. To be clear, it´s fair to acknowledge that Obamacare didn´t instantly turn the United States into Britain, where government runs

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge on Friday blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of an abortion providers´ association by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader. Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation. In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order "in the form of harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation." The National Abortion Federation sued in

Donald Trump is staking his run for U.S. president in part on a vow to protect American jobs. But this month, one of his companies, the elite Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Florida, applied to import 70 foreign workers to serve as cooks, wait staff and cleaners. A Reuters analysis of U.S. government data reveals that this is business as usual in the New York property magnate´s empire. Trump owns companies that have sought to import at least 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas since 2000, according to U.S. Department of Labor data reviewed by Reuters. Most of the applications were

Can we stop this deadly Iran deal? Perhaps. (Partially.) Should we try? Yes. With every fiber of our being. To the first point, there are two major hurdles that make stopping this deal nearly impossible. First, there are the numbers needed in Congress to override Obama’s veto. At this time, the numbers aren’t there. But perhaps we can change that. Second, even if Congress is able to override Obama’s veto, we cannot stop the full scope of the deal from going into effect. As John Bolton explained during an interview on Fox News, because Obama partnered with European nations, they will still honor the deal irrespective

Lions, Fetuses, and Ethics

Recently in Africa, a lion was killed by a game hunter. At the sane time news programs televised videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors discussing how they wanted to preserve fetal internal organs so they could obtain the highest prices for these parts on the fetal tissue market. Many commentators noted that the lion’s death received a lot more media coverage and serious concern than the doctors’ apparently callous disregard for the aborted unborn. These two responses appeared to be in conflict. There is an uncomfortable hypocrisy here. There should be more concern for the issue of selling the organs of

A federal judge has ordered Hillary Clinton and two of her top aides at the State Department, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, to attest, under penalty of perjury, that they have turned over all official government records in their possession. U.S. District Court judge Emmett Sullivan issued the bombshell ruling late Friday, hours after the State Department released its second batch of Clinton emails. The ruling was issued in the matter of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department. Sullivan issued three orders that will likely produce answers to looming questions about Clinton’s private email server arrangement. Clinton

With all the media focus on Donald Trump’s antics and the anxiety over the upcoming Republican primary debate, the mainstream media are mostly ignoring the surreal drift of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s troubles. Despite the fact that the Democrats seem to be escaping harsh media scrutiny, this is no easy time for them. In fact, to be considered as a leader who is in sync with the Democratic faithful and the disconnected yet growing left-wing base of the party, you have to put yourself through ideological, intellectual and moral contortions. To be seen as a good Democrat, you

The TMZ reporter asks Rubio about Cecil the Lion, and Rubio offers a sensible response: ”Obviously there’s laws in that country, so whatever laws there were, that guy should have followed them.” Then, however, he rightly pivots to the far more important story: But you know, everyone’s fired up about this tiger- or this lion– people should be more fired up about these babies that are coming out of the Planned Parenthood videos. If people are going to be outraged about an animal being killed, they should also be outraged about a human being being killed… It’s especially important to

Only Hillary Clinton could try to get away with slamming her Republican opponents for siding with the wealthy at the same time disclosing she’s filthy rich. Just $141 million for her and Bill Clinton since 2007, a figure that makes even the one-percenters envious. But Hillary’s different from other rich people because she wishes she had less money. If only her heartless GOP opponents would let her. “They want to give me another tax cut I don’t need instead of putting middle-class families first,” she said. Another thing that makes Hillary Clinton understand the middle class better: She pulled herself up by the bootstraps. “We’ve come

Making up a story, if it’s about a designated villain, is hip in certain quarters but it’s never cool, as Rolling Stone magazine is learning in the sordid wake of its account of a gang rape at a fraternity house at the University of Virginia. It was a gang rape that by all recent accounts never happened. The magazine retracted the story, but the damage was done. Now law suits are accumulating, the editor who presided over the story at the magazine walked the plank this week, and there’s talk that the White House may have been involved in advancing

A Winter Olympics in

When the International Olympic Committee selected Beijing on Friday as the host for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, the Chinese capital became the first city to have hosted both the Summer and Winter games. This, most likely, isn’t coincidental: Beijing’s hosting of the Summer games in 2008 was generally considered a success, and Almaty, the Kazakh city whose bid placed second, lacks comparable experience. A closer examination of Beijing’s 2022 bid, though, reveals the selection is far more peculiar than it seems at first glance. One reason: It barely snows in Beijing. China’s northern plain is extremely dry, and what precipitation

ISIS strives to create a new Caliphate. It is the fundamental reason for its existence. But the vision does not stop there.

The union representing the University of Cincinnati police force has filed a grievance on behalf of Raymond Tensing demanding that he get his job back as an officer because the university fired him this week without due process, a union official said Friday. Thomas Fehr, representative of the Fraternal Order of Police-Ohio Labor Council, said the union filed the grievance Thursday, the same day Tensing was arraigned on murder charges in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court. Tensing is accused of killing motorist Sam DuBose July 19 in Mount Auburn. Tensing had stopped DuBose because his car did not have a front license

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday attempted to distance herself from the controversial 12-nation trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership. During her tenure as U.S. secretary of state, Clinton publicly promoted the pact 45 separate times -- but with her Democratic presidential rivals making opposition to the deal a centerpiece of their campaigns, Clinton now asserts she was never involved in the initiative. "I did not work on TPP," she said after a meeting with leaders of labor unions who oppose the pact. "I advocated for a multinational trade agreement that would ´be the gold standard.´ But that was

Secretary of State John Kerry has been painting an apocalyptic picture of what would happen if Congress killed the Iran nuclear deal. Among other things, he has warned that “our friends in this effort will desert us." But the top national security official from one of those nations involved in the negotiations, France, has a totally different view: He told two senior U.S. lawmakers that he thinks a Congressional no vote might actually be helpful. His analysis is already having an effect on how members of Congress, especially House Democrats, are thinking about the deal. The French official, Jacques Audibert, is now

Fifty years later, the scene from Selma´s Bloody Sunday march still leaves a dark stain on United States history. Four months from its anniversary commemoration, the NAACP says the march for voting rights is not yet finished. As Congress prepares to go back into session, hundreds and thousands are expected to put their feet to the pavement this summer to join the NAACP in "America´s Journey for Justice" to demand federal protection of civil rights for all Americans. The march will kick off Saturday at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the setting for Selma´s Bloody Sunday, and will culminate

The chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission has a novel idea for reforming the turbulent agency she leads: Fire everyone -- except for her. Ann Ravel, the Democratic head of the commission, pitched the plan during a recent conference. While calling for a host of campaign finance reforms -- including more disclosure by political groups, easier online access to data -- she urged changes as well for the "cop on the beat," the FEC.

On a February evening last year, a Libyan woman confronted two patrons at the Bohemian Biergarten in downtown Boulder, Colorado. She poured her beer on one of the customers and later threw a glass at the other, leaving a bloody gash serious enough for sutures. Boulder police arrested the Libyan woman on a second-degree assault charge. It was not her first scuffle with the law in America. She´d been arrested three times before for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault.
