Conservatives Boycotting Target On The Transgender Bathroom Issue Are Being Hypocrites

According to Reuters, the socially conservative American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target stores after the retail chain announced that they would allow transgendered employees and customers to use the bathroom corresponding to their identified gender.

Petitions To Repeal North Dakota's Pharmacy Law To Be Circulated Again

I missed this in the lead up to the holiday weekend, but last week the Bismarck Tribune reported that another petition to repeal North Dakota’s bizarre pharmacy protection law has been filed with the Secretary of State’s office which is set to approve it for circulation. For the uninitiated, North Dakota law (specifically 43-15-35 of the

Bad News For Democrats: Former Congresswoman Gabbie Giffords Coming To North Dakota

Former Congresswoman Gabbie Giffords was forced to leave Congress after she was shot by a deranged man in Tucson. Now she’s on a multi-state tour aimed at chastising members of Congress who voted against gun control. “Our intention is not to chastise people,” Giffords aide Pia Carusone told Politico, but rather to “draw attention to

Texas Non-Profit Giving Away Free Shotguns, Training To Residents Of High-Crime Areas

This is fantastic: HOUSTON (TheBlaze/AP) – Houston resident Cheryl Strain’s inexperience with guns was apparent as she struggled to load shells into a 20-gauge shotgun.

IRS "Obamacare" Official Was Never In White House Meeting With IRS Commissioner

Recent reports detailed 157 visits by former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman to the White House during the time when the IRS was targeting President Obama’s political enemies for extra scrutiny.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will begin hearings this week focusing on the corruption at the IRS, and in advance of those hearings he’s released some statements from the depositions taken from IRS employees.

Heidi Heitkamp's Good Friend Harry Reid Has Some Major Ethical Problems

In terms of outside spending in the 2012 Senate race in North Dakota – spending, that is, that came from places other than the candidates themselves – there was no single person who had more of an impact that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Outside of the national Republican and Democrat parties, Reid’s Majority PAC

IRS Targeted Adoptive Parents For Audits

“[T]he IRS has harassed a number of pro-life groups, including at least one alleged demand that a pro-life group not picket Planned Parenthood,” writes David French for National Review. But even as the IRS was defending pro-abortion groups, they were targeting families who adopted children for audits. “In 2012, the IRS requested additional information from

Obama Ten Days Ago: We Should "Reject These Voices" Which Say Government Is "Sinister"

President Obama’s commencement address delivered at Ohio State University just ten days ago are sure coming off as ironic given the scandals uncovered in the last week. “Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems; some

Obama Claims He Didn't Know About The IRS Targeting Conservatives Until Friday

The IRS began targeting conservative and “tea party” groups three years ago. Senior IRS officials were aware of it two years ago. The IRS itself apparently tried to jump out in front of a yet-to-be-released IG report, which has been circulated widely in Congress, last week by preemptively apologizing to the targeted groups. But the
