Yesterday, ISIS released a video showing them cutting journalist James Foley’s head off. I have not watched the video nor do I intend to. It is not surprising coming from the barbarians that are slaughtering men, women and children by the tens of thousands in the pursuit of … something vaguely Islamic.

Brown was shot in the ensuing fracas. Other witnesses, including Brown’s companion (who has yet to be interview by … Read more
While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake.
