You’ll Never Believe Where Saba Ahmed Showed Up

1saba

On Monday, June 16, the Washington DC press got a glimpse of Saba Ahmed, and were all too eager to provide her the platform she craves.

Daylight Dissed! Oregonian Trots Out Smear Expert To Attack Citizen Journalist.

Oregonian reporter Harry Esteve smeared City of Springfield. Had to apologize on TV and in print.

You have to laugh about the Oregonian trotting out their most egregious hit-piece artist to attack me because I caught Governor Kitzhaber … wait for it … shopping for eggplant!  I ran into the Governor while he was at shopping at QFC and YouTubed the bizarre coincidence for laughs, and because well, it’s my First Amendment […]

The Actions Of Nick Meli Helped End The Oregon Mall Shooting

The Actions Of Nick Meli Helped End The Oregon Mall Shooting

UPDATE: Brave liberal trolls gallantly commenting from their anonymous hidey-holes are still making statements that this story is made up. For these special types of google-challenged buffoons, my buddy Victoria Taft has confirmation on her blog: Although law enforcement wouldn’t divulge Nick Meli’s version of events to The Victoria Taft Show, the Zero got a […]

All The News That’s Fit To Fake

All The News That’s Fit To Fake

Despite the fact that there have been at least two stories somewhat critical of Obama in recent weeks, some still cling bitterly to their mantra that the liberal media is in the tank for Barky. As it happens, CBS hasn’t been especially successful at contributing to the effort to dispel such perceptions of the MSM: […]

By 2015, the nation’s working population had grown by nearly 130 percent, and taxpayers had spent well over a trillion dollars improving and operating urban transit systems. Yet the number of people taking transit to work […]

  • Reason #2 to Stop Subsidizing TransitSubsidies Haven’t Increased Ridership April 21, 2017
    In 2015, the American Public Transportation Association issued a press release whose headline claimed that transit ridership in 2014 achieved a new record.
