I just found out that my personal Equifax file was exposed in the data breach. Since the reports are that 143 million credit files were breached last week, I guess I am not surprised. Now, Equifax wants to give those affected a free ID theft membership for a year! What a joke... the people that allowed my information to be exposed are now going to protect me? There is not a chance that I am going to fall for that. What makes matters worse, is that some reports are saying that by joining the free credit monitoring you may be... Read more →

With the announcement that President Trump will allow the release of the classified JFK files, Judyth Vary Baker weighs in on what she expects. Although Baker does not expect any major revelations in the coming document dump, the most important documents she would like to see released are the tax returns of Lee Harvey Oswald. Baker believes that Oswald's tax returns would provide proof that he was a government asset. She also shares her firsthand account of seeing Rafael Cruz (father of Ted Cruz) working with Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans. She believes that Cruz's assistance to Oswald proves... Read more →


Courtesy of the FBI’s website, we now know of another scam for which Americans need to be on the lookout…because bad guys never seem to tire of finding ways to separate us from our hard-earned dollars. Virtual kidnapping has arrived to terrorize and defraud innocent citizens. As with many other scams popular nowadays, the most important mechanism to perpetrating the crime is the telephone. And as with other telephone scams, virtual kidnapping involves leveraging victims into forking over money by way of extortion. Here’s basically how it works: A victim receives a random phone call and hears a woman screaming,... Read more →


That wacky California. It’s not nearly bizarre enough, apparently, to criminalize ‘wrong’ gender pronoun use, while lessening the penalty for knowingly transmitting HIV. There must be even MORE madness in the Golden State. How about this? Recently, at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library (because in California, the jokes write themselves, folks), children’s story hour became Drag Queen Story Hour, in honor of LGBT history month. And so a drag queen recently read to the kiddies. But that’s not all. The drag queen, Xochi Mochi, was dressed as a five-horned demon while he/she/it/they was in front of the children. The Christian... Read more →


Although Donald Trump was clearly the preferred choice over Hillary Clinton for many conservatives in the 2016 presidential election, there have been lingering concerns about whether Trump was really going to govern in the fashion of a genuine conservative. While there have been moments since last November that have given many conservatives cause to wonder if Trump would do all that he promised on the campaign trail, his conservative credentials have been beyond reproach in some areas. The new president very much kept his word, for example, on the matter of appointing a constitutional originalist to the Supreme Court when... Read more →


Judicial Watch (JW), a non-profit watchdog group that extracts information from the government by filing Freedom of Information Act lawsuits, has learned that former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner, recently sentenced to 21 months in prison after being convicted of transferring obscene material to a minor, had 2,800 government documents on his laptop that were sent directly to it by his wife, Hillary Clinton insider Huma Abedin. In a statement, JW president Tom Fitton said, “This is a disturbing development. Our experience with Abedin’s emails suggest these Weiner laptop documents will include classified and other sensitive materials. When will the Justice... Read more →


To what is surely no one’s surprise, the Clinton Foundation will not be returning, re-donating, or otherwise cleansing itself of the money donated to it by the now-notorious Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. According to the Daily Mail, that news outlet was told directly by the foundation on Sunday that the hundreds of thousands received through the years from Weinstein have already been spent on helping women in developing nations and on lowering the cost of HIV medication, and so cannot be returned. Additionally, the Daily Mail says it was told by the foundation that 2014 was the last time a... Read more →


As times change, one core element of the American lifespan that has been in place for as long as anyone can remember may be on the way out. Retirement. Per an article over at CNN Money, there are actually four reasons why retirement may well be a stage of life you end up skipping altogether now. One is that you simply expect Social Security to be able to meet your living expenses when you stop working. But if you’re one of those who’s planning exactly that way, you may be in for a rude awakening. CNN says that while Social... Read more →


You might remember this space passed along news a few weeks ago about a hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego, one significant enough that authorities were moved to try disinfecting the sidewalks. Well, things seem to be getting even worse in the land where everything goes. This past Friday, Governor Jerry Brown was force to declare a state of emergency because of the problem, according to the San Diego Union Tribune: “The declaration allows state health officials to buy additional doses of the hepatitis A vaccine to try to halt the outbreak, which is already the nation’s second largest in...

Woody Allen has weighed in with his thoughts on the Weinstein scandal. Actually, you probably don’t need to hear any more than that without thinking there’s a punch line coming next. But there isn’t. He actually has some thoughts about it. Weinstein must be banging his head against the wall after hearing accused pedophile Allen – a man who, in addition to being on the receiving end of a host of unsavory allegations involving sex and minors, wound up marrying the daughter of former partner Mia Farrow – seem sympathetic toward him in comments made to the BBC, as reported...

It’s tempting to play it safe. After all, the instinct of self-preservation may be the strongest we possess. So it is with investing. We want to live well, to be sure, but when it comes to our money, the safer the better; always. That said, a piece over at USA Today informs us that taking more risk in one’s investment behavior serves as the key to a prosperous retirement. While the article is not necessarily wrong, something more seasoned citizens may now consider is the option of taking a more creative approach to funding retirement…and, as a result, lessening their...

The Family Research Council put on the 12th edition of its annual Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. this past weekend, and Steve Bannon, once thought to be the power behind the throne in the Trump administration and now Executive Editor over at Breitbart News, appeared on stage to make a powerful case for “economic nationalism” in front of the assembled. Although Bannon resigned as White House chief strategist back in August, populist conservatives who’ve been Donald Trump’s greatest supporters still see Bannon as most representative of the ideas in which they believe. Indeed, many see Bannon as being the... Read more →

Former CIA agent, Eric Burkhart, joins Jim to discuss his book Mukhabarat, Baby! My Life as a Wartime Spy for the CIA.

Hollywood’s troubles are not only continuing; it looks like they may be just beginning. By the day, increasing numbers of movie A-listers are finding themselves caught up in the mushrooming sexual harassment scandal that now engulfs Tinseltown…and some are, without question, the biggest names in all of show business. This would include liberal do-gooder George Clooney, of all people, who is now on the receiving end of accusations being leveled by an actress from his days on the popular NBC TV drama ER. Using Twitter to get her message out, actress Vanessa Marquez, who appeared on the show for four... Read more →
