But now, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is now digging into why Abedin was allowed to retain special government employee status while also working for a consulting firm. This is an ongoing effort by Grassley to get some answers from both Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, as both used private email accounts while working for the State Department. [click to continue…]

On Thursday, Indiana governor Mike Pence signed into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and from the reaction of the media and various celebrities you would’ve thought that anti-gay Jim Crow laws had just been enacted in the Hoosier state.

On Saturday an estimated 3000 people protested in Indianapolis against the RFRA, waving rainbow flags and chanting “No hate in our state! Whose state? Our state!” CNN headlines referenced the “Indiana law that allows biz to reject gays.” A hysterical guest on Al Sharpton’s little-watched MSNBC program likened Mike Pence to Jim Crow and George Wallace (never mind that Wallace was a Democrat).

Protests in Indianapolis.

Businesses with corporate connections to Indiana predictably began shaking in their boots. Angie’s List halted their building project in Indianapolis, its chief executive Bill Oesterle stating that “Angie’s List is open to all and discriminates against none and we are hugely disappointed in what this bill represents.” San Francisco-based Salesforce.com Inc. has cancelled all programs requiring travel to Indiana. And the NCAA, faced with next week’s Final Four basketball games already scheduled in Indianapolis, designated themselves as watchdogs at the event, “. . . to assure student-athletes competing in, and visitors attending, next week’s Men’s Final Four in Indianapolis are not impacted negatively by this bill,” in the words of NCAA President Mark Emmert.

And then there are the celebrities.

Unfortunately, you read that headline correctly. Indiana state representative Vanessa Summers, a Democrat, actually got on the state House floor during a debate over the religious freedom bill, where she informed her GOP colleague Jud McMillin that his son is “scared” of her because she is black.

McMillin’s son is 18 months old. Not years, MONTHS.

“I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scared of me because of my color,” Summers told McMillin, who is white, during debate over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act in the House.

“It’s hard,” said Summers, D-Indianapolis. Then, as other lawmakers groaned at the comments, she followed up with, “It’s true.”

Summers stood by her comments afterward, detailing the meeting with McMillin’s young son earlier in the session.

“He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried. And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared,” she said.

Asked whether his son shied away because of her skin color, she said, “I truly believe so.”

This is so mind-numbingly insanely stupid that I don’t even know where to begin. (The video is here, if anyone wants to hear how crazy this sounded.) But we’ll start with McMillin’s response back to Summers. [click to continue…]

Well folks, it became official with Ted Cruz’s  official announcement of his long rumored Presidential  aspirations at Liberty University earlier this week-2016’s Presidential Open Season is upon us. Usually, the Politi-Geek in me just eats this stuff up but with the split in the GOP having opened up wide enough to swallow any hopes we had at gaining representation for Republicans in the Pacific Northwest, I worry that the same may be about to play out at the national level. Before you read on, please note that the opinons expressed are mine alone. [click to continue…]

March 27, 2015

In addition to admitting to molesting her sister and lying about being raped, Dunham has […]

Student Forced To Shave Head Because Principal Is Clueless About the Military

March 26, 2015

The story is so simple, and yet the actions are baffling, idiotic, and infuriating. Seven year old Adam Stinnett’s older stepbrother is in the Army, and has previously served in Afghanistan. Like many little brothers, Adam wanted to copy big brother, so he got a “high and tight” haircut. But apparently, Principal Monti Hillis is […]
