Rand Paul Versus Bernard Sanders On CIA Spying Against The US Senate

Here we are, a full day since the news that the CIA has been conducting illegal spy operations against the United States Senate. In reaction to the revelations yesterday, our writer J. Clifford speculated that the issue could enter the 2016 presidential election, with libertarian Republican Rand Paul and independent Bernard Sanders taking special interest […]

Libertarians, How Do You Feel About the Rand Paul Plagiarism Scandal?

Since he appeared on the national scene in 2010, Senator Rand Paul has been a favorite of libertarians in the United States. Libertarians assert “the right to life — accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others,” and also emphasize “the right to property… and the prohibition of robbery, trespass, […]

A Vatican Of Bad Fish

If anything positive is likely to come of the meltdown of credibility in the Vatican, it is that Americans will finally allow their own values of equality, liberty, acceptance of diversity, and government free of religious interference to lead the United States toward a legal system less influenced by medieval prejudice. […]

GSA Scandal vs. Military Scandal

I would prefer to see the U.S. government pay for clowns to perform silly shows on stage than to see the U.S. military pay for soldiers to keep clowning around with human body parts. […]

What’s The Big Deal About Secret Service Prostitutes?

If it was Barack Obama who hired a prostitute in Colombia, I could understand calling that a scandal, though it wouldn’t really be very political. If the Secret Service agents and American soldiers had passed classified secrets on to the prostitutes, I could understand calling that a scandal. But, there’s nothing of that sort in this story, so what makes it a scandal? […]

Buddy Roemer Buying Votes in the Americans Elect Presidential Nomination With “Swag”

Just when you thought the Americans Elect circus couldn’t get any more zany…

… Even though he’s the frontrunner among Americans Elect declared candidates, Buddy Roemer is far from getting enough “support” votes to actually make it onto the ballot. What’s a frustrated candidate to do?

Buy votes with “swag.” Tip of the pen to […]

$10.6 Million Dollars a Day in Untraceable Campaign Spending

From October 16 to October 20, 2010 (the latest day for which FEC data is available), corporate entities that have made-up names and are largely exempted from having to reveal their mysterious donors spent $53,052,839 in independent expenditures on congressional campaigns. $15.0 million went to oppose Democrats, $2.9 million went to support Democrats, $4.7 million […]

John Conyers Substitutes Press Release for Action on Illegal FBI Surveillance

Last week we learned that the FBI had violated American constitutional standards and federal law five times over by:

1) lying about terrorism emergencies that did not exist 2) to obtain phone records of American citizens 3) who were reporters 4) without a warrant 5) in order to figure out who in the government had […]

Will FBI Coverup Chief Robert Mueller Resign? Will Obama Condone Government Lies?

In order to grab domestic records of phone calls made within the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation lied, simply making up terrorist threats that did not actually exist. The Fourth Amendment to the United States of the U.S. Constitution guarantees that the government cannot accomplish searches or seizures without a warrant and an […]

Intentionally Misread Headline of the Day: He Has One There, Too?

CNN International: “Sanford spending holiday weekend with family in Florida”

The poor dear. If he weren’t such a policy hypocrite on marriage, I’d give him a break.

United We Buy T-Shirts and Pens and Pay the Executive Director

As you know, September 11, 2001 changed everything.

Here are a few pieces of the everything that changed:

$3.1 million in new payroll slush money unaccounted for by the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police in 2006 alone,

$800,000 in new extra pay for the director of the OACP, who happened to be a […]
