When I ran the State Fair booth of the NCDP the past two years, the Sons of Confederate Veterans' booth was about 10 meters from my booth. Nobody protested against them, nobody hassled them, and they were peaceful and non-threatening. I did bring three American flags to decorate my booth, so they'd...

So I am a bit confused. Has Klayman actually filed a lawsuit, or is he just announcing it and trying to get people to watch someone's documentary? Yes. Yes, Klayman filed a lawsuit (in Florida state court). It is also a fairly transparent PR stunt for Gilbert's latest fail. That's GIL's draft. Did ...

Re: Duncan Hunter (CA-50) and wife indicted for misuse of campaign funds

Is he required to resign now? No. And this is a sweetheart deal for Hunter. He and his wife were indicted on 60 counts. I haven't read the indictment in a while, but IIRC, most of them were related to Duncan at least in part. I smell the hand of Bill Barr in this plea deal. FWIW: https://www.nytime...
