WND Exclusive – Dirt Bags are Ruining it for the Good Guys

You may have heard the line, “I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave.” It was made popular by country singer Trace Adkins in his 2005 hit song, “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.”

Love Trace Adkins. Big, hulking, unapologetically conservative country star. What’s not to love?

Back then, the song seemed harmless enough. But were it to be released today, it would be an entirely different story. The video would be seen as pure objectification of women. And now, in this climate, people would undoubtedly begin looking into Adkins’ background for potential abuse of women – not to mention the writers of the song, Dallas Davidson, Randy Houser and Jamey Johnson. read more

Why Even Have Inspectors General

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 1978, during the tenure of Yimmy the peanut farmer (Jimmy Carter), the Inspector General Act was enacted. And thus the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) was formed.

Federal Inspectors General are supposed to be “the head of an independent, non-partisan organization established within each executive branch agency assigned to audit the agency’s operation in order to discover and investigate cases of misconduct, waste, fraud and other abuse of government procedures occurring within the agency.”

From time to time the OIG conducts audits of the department or agency for which they are assigned, to ensure that each federal agency is operating within the law. Inspectors General have full authority to, “issue subpoenas for information and documents, administer oaths for taking testimony, and can hire and control their own staff and contract personnel. The investigative authority of Inspectors General is limited only by certain national security and law enforcement considerations.”

Therefore, by law, no department or agency employee or even cabinet appointee can refuse requests or demands made of them by the OIG. But this is not the private sector, where one can be fined or jailed for refusing to cooperate with official government inspectors. No, this is the federal government, and worse, this is the lawless Obama federal government. read more

Entering College? What’s Your Gender?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Lately I’ve been hearing more conservatives say attending college may no longer be worth it. For one, it’s becoming ridiculously expense. If you were to go four years at an Ivy League or like school, it’s possible to exit with a debt of well over $300,000. I have friends in their 30’s still paying undergraduate student loans. There’s something wrong that.

That’s not to say it isn’t necessary in some cases. Science, medical, engineering, all pretty much require classroom and lab environments, but in a lot college-liberal-conservativesof cases these days, actually attending a college is no longer essential.

And then there is the wackiness factor. We right-wingers have understood for years the perils of rampant runaway leftism being thrust on our young skulls full of mush (hat tip – Rush) as they go away to school, only to be taught more about the evils of capitalism and white privilege, and the benefits of communism, multiculturalism, social justice, and gender studies than the subject matter they signed up for.

So when I read about the latest campus flap, I was not the least bit surprised.

The story actually goes back a few years but the absurdity continues. It’s regarding the University of Oregon and a new student, Elle Mallon, who wished to join a fraternity. read more
