        Attorney General Loretta Lynch said something incredibly stupid a couple of weeks ago. This shouldn’t be surprising considering the fact that she is a political appointee and that her primary qualification for the job is that she’s a loyal Obama sycophant.

        What a bunch of baloney!

  • The ethanol mandate has failed

    Families are gassing up the car to head out of town, fueling up the boat for a weekend at the lake, and getting out the mower to tackle the lawn.
