Corruption and Cronyism in the Old Dominion

Wed, 2014-08-06 20:45
The first week of the McDonnell corruption trial has concluded, and if the testimony thus far is any indication, things aren't looking good for the defendants. The facts of the case reveal the unsavory influence that power and celebrity can have on individuals and families and of the insidious relationship between money and power in the world of politics. 2014-08-06T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-07T03:45:12Z Ken Connor

Obama's Whining, Petulant, Petty, Lame Duck Message

Wed, 2014-08-06 20:45

Quieting the Death Knell

Wed, 2014-08-06 20:45
I was really impressed with yesterday’s session as all the pieces were in place for a serious sell-off. Days with little to zero economic data are perfect test beds for the true pulse of investors. 2014-08-06T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-07T03:45:12Z Charles Payne

Wed, 2014-08-06 12:45
?America prides itself on being the land of the free, but over the past four decades our prison population has risen tenfold. We have by far the highest rate of incarceration in the world, and as a consequence, at least 2.7 million children have at least one parent in prison. Some fathers have abandoned their children, but others have been locked away from them. 2014-08-06T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-06T19:45:13Z Harry R. Jackson, Jr.

Liberals Come Late to the Pot Party

Wed, 2014-08-06 08:19
With the usual fanfare and self-regard we have come to expect from the New York Times editorial board, the prestigious paper has changed its mind about pot.

Unimpeachable Tales in Washington

Tue, 2014-08-05 22:15
All this talk of Republicans on the verge of impeaching President Obama is nonsense, stoked by Democrats and a few wistful conservatives who dream aloud about what, in a constitutional republic, should actually happen to a lawless president. 2014-08-06T00:01:00-04:00 2014-08-06T05:15:04Z Robert Knight

Tue, 2014-08-05 20:45
It’s not uncommon for shopping malls to have rules of conduct. Some places ban saggy pants. Others won’t let you ask people for money. But a mall in Georgia may have one of the most unusual rules -- they won’t let shoppers pray – not even over their meals. 2014-08-05T13:33:00-04:00 2014-08-06T03:45:05Z Todd Starnes

In a recent interview, the nation’s chief extortionist officer (Eric Holder) explained that being an “activist” was necessary for his job at the DOJ… Isn’t that kinda like a patrol officer slapping a political bumper sticker on their police cruiser? 2014-08-05T02:09:00-04:00 2014-08-06T03:45:05Z Michael Schaus
