Tim Russert spent decades building NBC News’ “Meet the Press” into the benchmark of Sunday morning appointment television. But his replacement, David Gregory, has fallen into the same pit of partisanship that has turned the rest of NBC’s news apparatus into a weird little carnival of mealymouthed mendacity.
The Department of Homeland Security has decided to give “trusted traveler” status to Saudi Arabian travelers. That’s right, the country that we’re told produced 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers can have its citizens coming to the United States pass fast-tracked through customs without hassle.

If the Republican Party is to have a future, Senator Rand Paul (and Senators who joined him on the floor like Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah and Jeff Flake of Arizona) are it.
On the backs of money debasement, $7 trillion in additional debt and mainstream media propaganda, helicopter Ben Bernanke has created the illusion of a prosperous economy. It’s a bubble that will soon burst. When it does, it will be ugly.
If you’re reading this, then you’re one of the blessed few who somehow survived sequestration. By “blessed few,” I mean “everyone on the planet.” And by “sequestration,” I mean “infinitesimally minor reduction in the growth of our already grotesquely obese government.”
