From an article in the American Spectator titled “An Elegy for the FBI“: Thanks to the raid of Trump’s home, the FBI is not only faced with having lost the confidence and cooperation of almost half of America. It has also transformed itself into a despised moral leper colony — a painted, hagged out,… Continue reading Quote of the week
A very, very good point
Regarding calls for a Constitutional Convention to “rectify” our current political problems, Karl Denninger observes (emphasis in original): [A convention] will do nothing until and unless it includes the willingness of the States to back the requirements of the Constitution with whatever force is necessary for it to be obeyed, Supreme Court, Executive and… Continue reading A very, very good point
“Should I get my anti-vax friends’ baby vaccinated without telling them?”
That’s the question put by an anonymous reader to Damon Young’s advice column in the Washington Post. Hi Damon: My best friend is an antivaxxer (not only covid, all the vaccines). His wife is, too. They have a 9-month-old baby and they haven’t vaccinated him. I babysit for them every other weekend. Should I… Continue reading “Should I get my anti-vax friends’ baby vaccinated without telling them?”
An FBI whistleblower alleges abuses
I highly recommend paying close attention to an FBI whistleblower’s case as it unfolds. The New York Post reports: Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to… Continue reading An FBI whistleblower alleges abuses
“Lies, Damn Lies, And Police Interrogations”
That’s the title of a recent video by the Armed Attorneys, Richard Hayes and Emily Taylor. I think it’s particularly important viewing in the light of partisan District Attorneys and police administrators in many jurisdictions in the USA. I’ve written about that problem extensively in the past, particularly in these two articles: Self-defense under… Continue reading “Lies, Damn Lies, And Police Interrogations”
An interesting tweet was sent my way by a reader. In it, Riley Stearns recounts the story of an unusual duel. Click the image below for a larger view. The story sounds almost too good to be true, but after over six centuries, I suspect we won’t be able to find out anything more. … Continue reading Good doggie!
“Montana has lost its water rights”
That’s the headline of an article over at The Organic Prepper. I think its overall tone is unnecessarily alarmist, but the meat of the matter is certainly cause for concern. This article covers the appropriation of Montanans’ water rights by the federal government in the name of the CKST (Confederated Kootenai and Salish Tribes).… Continue reading “Montana has lost its water rights”
Will you please help rescue a little girl?
The Intrepid Reporter, whom we’ve mentioned several times in these pages, is fighting a legal battle to gain legal custody of one of his grandchildren. It’s a horror story of competing interests, different laws in multiple jurisdictions, bureaucrats and emotions that’s been painful to follow. You can read about it here at the fundraiser he’s… Continue reading Will you please help rescue a little girl?
“There’s a reason the public’s confidence in the FBI has plummeted”
That’s according to Tucker Carlson, who analyzes the FBI’s misdeeds and malfeasance in some depth. I highly recommend watching the video in full if you can; if you don’t have time for that, a partial transcript follows. And here’s an excerpt from a partial transcript at Fox News. According to Merrick Garland, the onus… Continue reading “There’s a reason the public’s confidence in the FBI has plummeted”
“Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump?”
That’s the series title of four articles you’ll find at the Conservative Treehouse. They’re very long and detailed, so much so that I won’t even try to excerpt them here. The four are: Part 1 – The Story Behind the Documents Part 2 – The Evidence Within the Documents Part 3 – A Culmination… Continue reading “Why Did the DOJ and FBI Execute the Raid on Trump?”
