Venezuela economy ‘death spiral’

Socialism, Communism or maybe just Dictatorial Stupid-ism is killing children, the sick and the weak in Venezuela. Tulsa Today has warned repeatedly, but in many newsrooms loony lemmings continue to ignore the humanitarian crisis caused by Bernie Sanders styled socialism.  People are hunting rats and pigeons for food in South America.  Continue reading

The final nail in the Clintons’ coffin

A stunning opinion piece by Seth Mandel today in the New York Post, published under the headline “Dems’ ‘reckoning’ with Bill’s sexual offenses is the final nail in the Clintons’ coffin.”

Enraged Atheist attacks Christian in-Laws

Sutherland Springs Texas

Updated: During service Sunday unarmed Christians were massacred near San Antonio, Texas by Atheist Devin Patrick Kelley. Now 26 are dead and 24 injured in Sutherland Springs. Kelley’s in-laws attend the church, but were not there at the time.

Interrupting the slaughter of innocents, an armed neighbor engaged Kelley who then ran. Neighbors pursued Kelley’s vehicle until it crashed. Police found Kelley dead – the killing shot apparently by his own hand.

Kelley was convicted by an Air Force general court-martial on two charges of domestic assault against his wife and step-son, which legally would have barred him from purchasing firearms. He spent 12 months in prison at Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar in California, after which he was reduced to the lowest rank and given a “Bad Conduct Discharge” in 2014.  Continue reading
