So, we have Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl released in exchange for five of the most notorious Taliban held in Guantanamo, the place Obama keeps saying he wants to empty. This certainly helps to empty it. The five men will now be held by Qatar, which has reassured us they’ll be in secure…

The reliably leftist publication Mother Jones has noticed that using trains to transport oil hasn’t worked out too well over the last few years. Too bad there’s no safer way to transport fuel.

Obama and many of his supporters have claimed that problems with the VA go back many years. While there is some truth to that, they’ve neglected to point out that prior to becoming president, Senator Barack Obama served on the Veterans Affairs Committee. This was a very good catch by Weasel Zippers… Yesterday, Barack…

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released yesterday in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo. On the one hand, an American soldier was brought home. As with the Israelis, it sends a signal that we don’t leave anyone behind, even when the trade is lopsided and frees those who may…

White privilege is the political Swiss Army Knife of the progressive movement. There is literally nothing that happens in the country for which white privilege does not serve as a tool. If you are white, you have white privilege. If you are not, you suffer from lack of white privilege. The insane White…

Luckily, the Illinois House has backed off the idea for the moment. USA Today reported… Illinois shelving $100M gift to Obama library A plan to…
