David Bossie: State Department says it’ll take 45 to 65 YEARS to get me info on its role in the 2016 election

For years my organization, Citizens United, battled the Obama State Department over dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and lawsuits. It became common knowledge that if you wanted to get information out of the State Department in a timely manner, you had to go to court.

Hashtag Hell: The Southern Baptist Convention and Dr. Paige Patterson

Dr. Paige Patterson is living in hashtag hell. You know, a barrage of public comments and opinions without full knowledge of the people or events involved. The nature of social media quickly spirals into a modern-day public stoning. People choose a side, then choose words to hurl like digital stones. While this may be common behavior for the lost, professing Christians have blatantly entered the ring. The behavior of Christians on both sides of the Paige Patterson issue is unbiblical. Biblical truth should transcend cultural trends and practices – always.

Illegal immigrants, who dodged California ICE raid after Dem mayor’s tip-off, re-arrested for new crimes

Three illegal immigrants, who avoided capture after Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf blew the whistle on a raid by federal immigration authorities last month, have since been re-arrested for new crimes including robbery and spousal abuse, ICE officials said.  Schaaf tweeted out a warning ahead of the raid in northern California last month, infuriating Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and the Trump administration.  “How dare you!” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in California this month, addressing Schaaf. “How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda.”

In the War Against Faith-Based Adoption Agencies, Children Lose

I’m a lawyer. I confess that math was never my strong suit, and I figured that law school would keep me safe from it.  I did, however, pick up on some of the more basic concepts—like greater than or less than, and more versus less.  Surely, we can all agree on the basic math supporting the following statements:

Not Always Like This

One of the unavoidable tragedies of youth is the temptation to think that what is seen today has always been. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in our responses to the recent Parkland, Florida, massacre. Part of the responses to those murders are calls to raise the age to purchase a gun and to have more thorough background checks — in a word, to make gun purchases more difficult. That’s a vision that sees easy gun availability as the problem; thus, the solution is to reduce that availability.

As Robyn Gritz found out, he’s not a gentleman.

In April 2015, National Public Radio reported on the case of former FBI Special Agent Robyn Gritz who had been forced out of the bureau after she “got crosswise with her supervisors.”  “When you’re fighting terror and you’re seeing buildings come down before you, you’re passionate and you’re emotional, and I think the American people want you to be that way when you’re fighting terror and keeping them safe,” she said.

he House Ethics Committee asked two Democratic lawmakers from Illinois to pay the U.S. Treasury after investigations found one used office space in his district for nearly three decades without paying rent and the other paid a staffer-turned-contractor for work that was sometimes legislative in nature.  In lengthy reports released Thursday, the ethics panel reproved Reps. Bobby Rush and Luis Gutiérrez for violating House rules and called on them to pay $13,310 and $9,700, respectively. The committee will consider the matters closed once the payments have been made, the reports said.

More Racist Rhetoric From South Africa: Whites ‘Must Leave Everything’

As violence against white farmers continues, following the South African parliament’s decision to seize all farmland from whites without compensation, Julius Malema, leader of the Marxist-Revolutionary Economic Freedom Party, continues to spew hateful rhetoric against South Africa’s white citizens.

In response, Australia has debated whether or not they would be offering emergency visas to white farmers if the hatred reaches dangerous levels. Malema says that if white farmers wish to flee to a “racist country” like Australia, then they should be free to do so. However, he denies that their lives are in any danger — even as he’s talked publicly about “cutting the throat of whiteness.”

Crumbs!

The Patriot’s Editorial:

All of us have heard the saying: ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ and that is certainly true when it comes to ‘Crumbs’! Nothing could have put this into perspective more than the recent political statement regarding company bonuses immediately following the tax cut. So, I thought it might be enlightening to examine this ‘junk versus treasure’ comment to determine what was really said and why. Read More »

Gun/Weapon Education Versus Misunderstanding

The Patriot’s Editorial:

I recently read a Facebook post that was asking why do we need semi-automatic and automatic weapons. Well, the first thing we need is some education on the difference between those two types of weapons. Individuals that own and love guns as I do, know and understand the difference. There are three types of weapons and I will explain each one and show how they actually operate and why some are legal to own and others are not. Read More »

Challenges of Draining the………………What?

The Patriot’s Editorial:

What does ‘Draining The Swamp’ actually entail? That seems to be the million dollar question simply because new revelations about the depth and magnitude of problems in Washington seem to grow exponentially by the hour. Trying to make sense of this, and figure out what swamp draining involves, has proven to be a convoluted mess and thus, difficult to sort out. Like the ecosystem, many things are going on at once and all have to be addressed and corrected before all negative ‘cause and effect’ issues are eliminated. So, you can not just fix one thing without fixing something else. The obstacles to ‘Draining the Swamp’ are (but not limited to): Read More »
