A note from the author: Since originally publishing this book in October of 2013, the wide variety of nefarious activities that North Korea has been involved with have become more than apparent. It appears that the regime, desperate to fulfill its military ambitions, will operate as a state sponsor of hacking, ransomware, and worse. In hindsight, I wish I had brought more attention to this element of my investigation when the book was first released. As a result, I am publishing the below excerpt and making the entire Kindle book available for free on Amazon for a limited time. Excerpted... Read more →


Forgotten about this? Obamacare, which is already in a death spiral, fights to stay alive each year with higher and higher premiums. Well, come 2018, as things stand right now, in addition to however much premiums are due to increase simply on the basis of the failing mechanism, they will go higher still. This is thanks to the Obamacare health insurance tax that’s always been lurking, but never (yet) implemented. The health insurance tax has always been a component of the Affordable Care Act, but one that politicians have managed to keep at bay during the first years of the... Read more →


Do you live in Illinois? All this talk of financial turmoil in your state got you down? Avoiding visits to the Windy City since it became a murder factory? Well, it turns out the news isn’t all bad in the Land of Lincoln. Now, you can celebrate Barack Obama’s birthday. And it’s all official-like, too. As reported by a variety of media outlets, including Fox News, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner last week signed a bill that makes the 44th President of the United States’ August 4 birthday a state commemorative holiday. Pretty neat. According to Senate Bill 55, that day... Read more →


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for some time, you know that a solar eclipse, known as the Great American Eclipse, is just a relative handful of days away. August 21 is the date, and it will mark the first time since 1918 that a total solar eclipse has been visible throughout the nation. The eclipse will begin in Oregon and move across the country in a southeast direction, finishing in South Carolina. There is no shortage of activity in advance of the obviously-rare occurrence, with countless communities throughout the U.S. making all kinds of plans for viewing parties... Read more →


The Department of Labor released employment data last week making it clear the economy is on the mend. As a matter of fact, according to the numbers, job openings in the United States made a resounding jump from May to June. The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) revealed the number of open positions in the U.S. rose from 5.7 million in May to 6.2 million at the end of June…an eight percent increase in just a month. Perhaps even more significantly is the number of those jobs that came to life in the private sector: 417,000, or a... Read more →


But will there still be archery and horseback riding? The Daily Caller, reporting on a piece over at the Associated Press, is telling the world about a transgender day camp that is getting along quite “swimmingly” since opening its doors three years ago. That’s right…a transgender day camp. Rainbow Day Camp, which can be found in the San Francisco Bay Area, describes itself as being devoted to “gender diverse youth who are gender creative, transgender, gender non-binary or exploring both gender expression and identity,” and describes its vision, in part, as to be a place that “provides a safe space...

The “hate cops” narrative in America remains in full effect, apparently. A report surfaced last week of two plainclothes NYPD officers, with visible badges, who were denied service at a New York City Dunkin’ Donuts because they are police officers. The employee at issue allegedly said, simply, “I don’t serve cops.” In response, Michael Palladino, president of the Detectives’ Endowment Association, a police labor union, declared the employee’s treatment of the officers to be “disgraceful,” and said that “it should not go unattended,” at which point he called for NYPD detectives to boycott Dunkin’ until the company issues an apology....

Men, have no fear – putting on your best face each day will soon be easier than ever In a recent interview with The Telegraph, L’Oreal’s Marketing Director for the United Kingdom, Vismay Sharma, believes the world can expect to see male cosmetics counters in department stores within the next “five to seven years.” That should put the fear of God in the enemies of the West. Sharma said that the acceptability of men wearing makeup is growing out of deference to what he called the “selfie generation.” The “selfie generation;” clearly, something else that has been a big help...

It is well known that Hillary Clinton has taken little to no personal responsibility for her loss in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton has pointed the finger at a variety of external influences she sees as the “real” reasons behind why she was defeated by Donald Trump last year; most prominent among those is alleged sexism, as well as the decision by then-FBI Director James Comey to take another look, just before the election, at her use of a private email server. Well, if you ask some of her supporters throughout the New York City area if there are any... Read more →


An item over at CNBC.com explains just how bad things can get for dissatisfied customers of a business should they carry their criticisms of a product or service to extremes When Neely and Andrew Moldovan of Dallas, Texas were making wedding plans, they contracted with photographer Andrea Polito to capture the memories of their special day. Eventually, however, the Moldovans and Polito found themselves in a dispute over a $125 fee the photographer said was required in order to put a cover on the couple’s wedding album. The newlyweds claimed that service was supposed to be included in the package... Read more →


Militaries everywhere seem to be changing a LOT. You know about the ongoing battle in this country about what, if any, role that so-called transgenders should be allowed to formally play in the defense of the nation. Well, in countries well known to be even more progressive than the United States, it seems the incorporation of social justice agendas is becoming an official component of their very mission. Take Sweden. As reported by a variety of news outlets, including the International Business Times, the official Facebook page of Sweden’s army made last Monday what many saw as a curious update...

Well, this is one way to try to see Obamacare repealed. In Virginia, there’s a Republican donor claiming his party has committed fraud because it raised all of the money it during the previous election cycle, largely on the promise of repealing the Affordable Care Act, only to see the law remain very much intact, despite the fact that all three branches of government are firmly in Republican control. The Hill, citing an article over at The Virginian-Pilot, reports a retired Virginia Beach attorney by the name of Bob Heghmann filed a lawsuit on Thursday in U.S. District Court, saying... Read more →
