DOJ Tries To Seize Control Of Public Records Arbitration

The unprecedented move would give the…


Free Govt. Meals Contributing To Obesity

In a laughable story that illustrates how dense government can be, a taxpayer-funded program that feeds low-income children free breakfast in public schools is causing concern about child obesity.

U.S. Says Water Supply At Risk From Global Warming

Less than a year after the U.S. government warned about global warming’s threat to the world’s food supply, a separate taxpayer-funded study reveals that water is also at risk from the ills of climate change.

Access To White House For Sale

GSA’s Vegas Bash Tip Of Corruption Iceberg

The scandal surrounding the General Services Administration’s (GSA) exorbitant Las Vegas conference is merely the tip of the iceberg for a bloated federal agency that apparently has quite a history of mismanagement and waste.

Border Patrol Agent Runs His Own “Fast and Furious”

In what appears to be the latest of many crimes resulting from the Obama Administration’s disastrous Mexican gun-running operation, a federal agent has been indicted for trying to smuggle high-powered weapons and large amounts of ammo south of the border. The U.S. Border Patrol agent undoubtedly got his idea from…


More 2008 Election Fraud Uncovered

Alcee Hastings Ranks No.1 In Nepotism

A Florida congressman impeached as a federal judge and currently under House Ethics Committee scrutiny has earned yet another recognition for his transgressions, this time nepotism.

Pelosi Touted Jobless Benefits While Jailed Killer Collected In her State

An inconceivable story about a convicted murderer who for years collected unemployment benefits from jail has made national headlines though a crucial component, associated with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has been left out.

Fla. Accused Of Demonizing Islam By Banning Sharia Law

Florida legislators are under attack from a terrorist front group for considering a bill aimed at banning the application of Sharia law—the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism—from courtrooms throughout the state.

$20 Mil To Help States Spend Federal Money

In a development that should make the average taxpayer’s head spin, the U.S government is doling out tens of millions dollars to support programs that help states spend their federal money more efficiently. It’s definitely a new era of government spending. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is…


CBP Busy Confiscating Fake Perfume, Dangerous Hair Dryers

While loads of drugs and illegal immigrants slip into the U.S. through the southern border, the Homeland Security agency created after 9/11 to protect the nation from such threats boasts about intercepting counterfeit perfume and unsafe hair dryers.

Diplomat At CPAC: Bin Laden’s Death 10 Years In Making
