FBI Director James Comey can't seem to figure out on which side of the fence he resides; or, can he? A few days ago, in an interview on CBS's "60 Minutes," Comey stated that American citizens who went to fight jihad alongside ISIS members were "entitled" to return to the United States.

It’s been a rough year or so for the Internal Revenue Service. The agency has been in the news for “losing” key computer records that Congress wants to investigate. There was the scandal over high-level attempts to investigate and intimidate churches. And there were the demands that certain conservative and Christian groups reveal their prayers and promise not to oppose Planned Parenthood.
Oh, and don’t forget the agency’s huge role in collecting funds for Obamacare.
Now, in open Read more [...]

“If the Republicans want to lose guys like me — and a whole bunch of still God-fearing Bible-believing people — go ahead and just abdicate on this issue, and why you’re at it, go ahead and say abortion doesn’t matter, either.”
“Because at that point, you lose me. I’m gone. I’ll become an independent. I’ll start finding people that have guts to stand. I’m tired of this.”

President Obama spends more time golfing than on national security.
On average, it takes four hours to play a round of golf. President Obama has played about 200 rounds since he took office. That’s 800 hours.
It takes about 45 minutes for him to receive a national security briefing. Most days he skips those briefings–almost 60% of the time, in fact. Read more [...]
