This Chart Breaks Down Year-By-Year Congressional Settlements. It’s Stunning.

Not ALL of these are sexual harassment settlements it must be noted. (From The DailyWire) On Wednesday, the Congressional Office Of Comp...

  


Party set to sack Mugabe, Zimbabweans celebrate expected downfall

    And celebrate they should. One of the world’s great crony capitalists is on the way out. Of course who the next devil is is a big question. Zimbabwe is a particularly sad situation. It is a country with vast resources and in developing world terms a very high literacy rate. It ...

The Fed’s Bubblenomics

    But where are the bubbles this time? Arguably the most obvious ones are in stocks and in alt-currencies. (For the record I am very much pro-Bitcoin, Etherium, Litecoin, the whole bit. (So to speak.) But there is a LOT of hot money in cryptos. That can’t be denied.) China just ...

  


‘Racist’ gun range billboards in South Jersey should come down, activists say. The range’s owner disagrees.

    Image: Philly.com   The “activists” say that the billboard is racist. I don’t think so. In your face? Yes. Racist? No. Frankly this is pretty soft for a presumed Eagles fan. (From Philly.com) A gun range in Camden County is resisting calls to take down two bil...

  


Awful: Report Finds Link Between Veteran Suicide and VA Neglect

    This report is not surprising. The VA is a vast bureaucracy that ensnares vets in red tape all too often. I can almost guarantee that there are many more than this 1 suicide that can be laid at the feet of Veterans Affairs. Over the years we’ve chronicled the boneheaded meander...

Franken forces Dems to finally confront their own sexual assault scandals

Franken and Louis CK.   This is a broad ranging issue. It (obviously) transcends party. However, the Democrats have for so long blathered on about the “war on women” that the recent news about Al Franken, Mr. Good Liberal, Mr. Tut Tut, is resonating particularly. And it’s no...

  


If we are going to have a Bill Clinton “reckoning”, let’s have a bank bailout reckoning while we’re at it. Seems good a time to do it

  If we are going to go back and re-examine Bill Clinton’s exploits, perhaps we should take this time to go back and look more closely at what really happened during the bank bailouts too. Time to get religion? What do you think? See the comments for this video at our . [...]...

  


Congress Grants Itself Immunity From Paying Sexual Harassment Claims

  So if a Congressman gets busted harassing a staffer or an intern guess who pays the monetary penalty? You and me. Not the offender. And that will continue to be the case. . [...]...

Hey Millennials: Communism Sucks, I Lived It

    The girl holding up the print of Joseph Stalin (in the article) makes me want to vomit. Again, I am increasingly convinced that the neo-communists just have no idea what socialism/communism is all about. But their ignorance is less forgivable than the ignorance of similar Americans i...

Congress paid out $15 million in settlements. Here’s why we know so little about that money.

    Who got paid what, because of whom, and for what, would be very interesting. (From CNN) Two things have become painfully clear on Capitol Hill this week: Lawmakers and staffers say sexual harassment is  — but even members of Congress have . The controversial and sensitive...

  


Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It

  Where this thing stops, nobody knows.   (From KABC) I couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep. I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated. How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny? I told my husband e...

Israel Ready To Share Intel With Saudis “Against Iran” Ahead Of Possible War

Politics really is ruining Thanksgiving, according to data from 10 million cellphones

  Wouldn’t you rather eat than fight anyway?   Thanksgiving has to be a time of cease fire. I know it’s hard. I KNOW it’s hard. But we all need to remember that perfectly good people can disagree on political matters. We can all let it go for a few hours or even an entir...

  


Harvard professor predicts half of U.S. colleges will be bankrupt within 10-15 years

    Given the inefficiencies (and the general cronyism) in colleges today I can’t see how the system continues as it is for all that much longer. “College” is an industry that is primed for disruption. A classic government inflated (via easy student loans) bubble that w...

    (From Mediaite) “You worry about a rape culture in America,” O’Connor elaborated. “Juanita Broaddrick was ignored, ridiculed, demeaned and absolutely trashed by the party elites, by [Hillary] Clinton, by the way, for the last 20 years. And just now suddenly Democrats are se...

  


Why don’t pro-tax big government bazillionaires just GIVE their money to the Treasury? (VIDEO)

  You know why and I know why. The crony game, and tax cuts or tax increases, works for them. Indeed, increasing the size of government often helps these bazillionaires directly. Plus as Varney explains below, many of these people don’t make much “income” (in relative terms)...

  


The individual mandate belongs in the trash heap

(From The Washington Examiner) Finally, and perhaps most important from the long-run perspective: repealing the individual mandate gets it off the books and out of the way for future health reform plans.

Zimbabwe’s army seizes power, targets ‘criminals’ around Mugabe

Mugabe had to figure it would end like this. Actually, he probably thought it would end worse than this. It is a tragedy what Mugabe did to his country.

Defense stocks have soared since Trump’s election

    The military industrial complex is so massive it creates its own gravitational field. And it looks unfortunately like it’s getting much more massive under Trump. Good to see ole’ crony Boeing doing so well. And that the damn Ex-Im Bank still lives. (From Defense News) ...
