We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.

Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, fired for insubordination after she told DOJ not to defend Trump’s immigration Executive Order, is being held up as a new hero by the left for doing so.

She attended an event on race in Atlanta this week and got a standing ovation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported:

Oh, Democrats. Why can’t you look in the mirror and just admit your problem? The Democrats suffered a massive blow when President Donald Trump crushed Hillary Clinton in the presidential Electoral College race. But Democrats also suffered in Congress and at the state level.

To fix that, the party wants to fight...

The Judiciary is taking a first, timid step toward interceding on Congress’s side and against executive over-reach regarding the Operation Fast and Furious.

On Tuesday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Justice must hand over to Congress documents...

In no small part because this administration seems to dish up scandal and outrage on a seemingly weekly basis, the Fast and Furious scandal has yet to be fully investigated or resolved.  After Eric Holder cleared Eric Holder of any wrong-doing,...

Outgoing attorney general Eric Holder made a stunning assertion at the National Press Club yesterday by suggesting that America isn’t at a time of war.

The American people, who see the Islamic radicals of ISIS beheading Christians and burning people alive probably think differently.

It pains me to come to the conclusion that Loretta Lynch should not be confirmed as our next Attorney General.

As I wrote before, Lynch was a law school classmate. While we were not “friends,” we were acquaintances. I have only good memories of her, and it does not surprise me that...

It was bad enough that none of President Obama, Vice President Biden or Secretary of State Kerry attended Sunday’s Solidarity March in Paris, attended by dozens of world leaders.

It would have been the right thing for Obama to attend. There was enough security to protect obvious targets like the French...

As expected, on Saturday Obama nominated Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General.

The Washington Post is reporting that the Department of Justice have found little legal basis on which to bring civil rights charges over the August 9 shooting of the black Mike Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.  The reason:  the actual evidence simply doesn’t support such a case.

She recently appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, DC to discuss the Fast and Furious scandal and others as well as the media’s refusal to aggressively report these stories.

Upon hearing the news of Eric Holder’s resignation from the Department of Justice yesterday, NBC’s Chuck Todd took to the airwaves and claimed that Holder is a very non-political person.
