Rise of ISIS Plus 9/11 Anniversary Put Washington on Edge

Sep 10, 2014 3:51 PM PT

The rise of ISIS and the 13th anniversary of 9/11 are heightening security concerns in Washington, especially for tomorrow, the anniversary itself.

Some Senate staff were told to keep their car keys and wallets on their person at all times this week in case the Capitol is evacuated. Staffers were not warned of any specific threat, however.

Senate staffers also said they expect a larger police presence on Capitol Hill this week.

One senior Democratic aide said U.S. Capitol Police have been “more meticulous” about checking IDs.

Obama and Sharpton: National In-Action Network

Aug 24, 2014 5:14 PM PT

Al Sharpton is always there for the rallies and marches but rarely for the solutions. 

Why are some Americans shocked when President Obama’s point man on race in Ferguson, MO is Sharpton as written on Politico Revved Up: How Al Sharpton became Obama’s go-to man on race? They hugged it out at the National Action Network’s 2014 dinner. Sharpton is a dishonest community organizer who's been a visible role model for Obama and every other progressive individual or organization that uses the black community under the guise of helping.

Top Cop In Ferguson, Missouri is Black, Sharpton Falls Over In Disbelief

Aug 19, 2014 9:48 AM PT

Civil rights activists (race-baiters) like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were quick in their efforts to make the unfortunate shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, into a racially divisive political circus like they did with Trayvon Martin.

Their actions and words only helped to insight more violence from angry “agitators,” who used the peaceful protests to mask their criminal acts.


After the initial policing of the rioting was condemned for its use of “militarized” police equipment, such as tear gas, body armor, and armor personnel vehicles, the Missouri State Police was called in to take over to try to calm tensions.
This move worked for about one day, but failed as the rioting and assaulting of police officers quickly resumed.

Allen West Says Lying About Military Service Is Nothing Less Than "Dishonorable"

Jul 22, 2014 8:18 AM PT

The story about Florida state House candidate Richard DeNapoli (R) lying about his service in the United States Marine Corps is catching fire, as more and more veterans are learning about, and becoming outraged over another case of "Stolen Honor."

DeNapoli once stated that he "served in the United States Marine Corps," but previous to making that statement, DeNapoli listed on his 2008 resume that he only completed weekend-long mini-OCS training.

I Quit

Jul 22, 2014 5:03 AM PT

This morning I woke after my all too common standard of 6 hours of sleep which I often supplement with an afternoon nap or something I tell myself is a period of rest before the next part of my day.

The first words in my mind after an ugh or two - I QUIT! After all, why wake every day and try to do the right things in life. We fight personal and professional battles in a complex world daily. We see others who do not which drains society in so many ways. Why not join the mediocre? Then there comes the moment I think of who I am as my parents raised me, the many who influenced me and those who still do. I even consider tomorrow momentarily and who I might meet.

Bergdahl investigation going about as expected

Jul 15, 2014 7:17 AM PT

In response to Bowe Bergdahl Returns To Regular Duty As 'Investigation' Ensues:

I heard some reasonable theories yesterday that Bergdahl was returned to active duty because if the military cut him loose, it would be harder to pursue the investigation against him for deserting his post.  There are some big differences between the way active vs. former military personnel are handled.  Plonking Bergdahl down at a desk in Texas keeps him accessible.

Bowe Bergdahl Returns To Regular Duty As 'Investigation' Ensues

Jul 14, 2014 11:37 AM PT

A lot of people - including Bergdahl's former platoon mates - had called for Bowe Bergdahl to be court martialed for desertion, but while the Army "investigates" his 2009 disappearance from an outpost in Afghanistan, he has been assigned what will likely be a desk job at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. 

Via NBC News:

Off duty, Bergdahl will be free to leave base and go where he wants without a military or medical escort. Army officials stressed that there are no plans for the military to assign media officers to him or take interview requests for him. It was not clear whether he will be under orders not to talk to the press.
