The global employment picture appears to be brightening considerably…for refugees. OK, that’s a bit of an overstatement, but there is at least one American mega-company that is going to make refugee-hiring a priority in the wake of Donald Trump’s executive order that halts, for the time being, the resettlement of refugees to the U.S., as well as temporarily bars citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from gaining entry to the United States. In a move widely reported by a number of media outlets, including The Blaze, the CEO of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, announced this past weekend that the coffee chain... Read more →


Well, it was just a matter of time. It appears that mothers, as in the word “mother,” is on the fast track to joining the steadily-growing collection of terms that can no longer be uttered out of deference to political correctness. Think that’s hogwash? Check this out. According to The Telegraph, the British Medical Association (BMA), the professional association and trade union for physicians in the United Kingdom, recently said in a memo to its members that the term “expectant mothers” should be replaced by “pregnant people,” so as not to offend those who are members of the transgender community....

You know that 35-page dossier on Donald Trump supposedly put together by a British spy with the help of Russian intelligence reports, reports that suggested the existence of sex tapes involving Trump and Russian prostitutes? Well, one of the key figures behind the whole mess has suddenly turned up dead. It is not the British spy, now identified as Christopher Steele, who bit the dust, but, rather, the person believed to be his inside man on the Russian side of things, a former KGB spy by the name of Oleg Erovinkin. According to The Sun, Erovinkin was found dead in... Read more →


Last Thursday, a uniformed FedEx employee did not like what he saw at a protest in Iowa City, and did something about it. Matt Uhrin, a parcel carrier with the delivery giant, came upon a group of people reportedly protesting racial and social injustice, and doing so, in part by variously “desecrating and burning American flags,” according to a report on the incident by Fox News. As the group was working to set the flags alight, Uhrin rushes into the scene with a fire extinguisher to put out the fires. Although Uhrin quickly found himself in a tense confrontation with...

Well, here’s a cheery thought. Mikhail Gorbachev, the former, and final, leader of the Soviet Union, is warning that it “looks as if the world is preparing for war.” Gorbachev’s comments were made in an opinion piece he wrote last week for Time magazine. “Politicians and military leaders sound increasingly belligerent and defense doctrines more dangerous,” Gorbachev wrote. “Commentators and TV personalities are joining the bellicose chorus. It all looks as if the world is preparing for war.” Calling the present situation “too dangerous,” Gorbachev noted that “more troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers are being brought to Europe. NATO... Read more →


Sadly, it appears our nation’s veterans can’t catch a break even after they’re dead. As reported by a number of outlets, including the Military Times, it turns out that seven people were buried in the wrong graves at a veterans cemetery in Rhode Island. According to the Times, the mix-up at the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery can be traced to a series of errors that began back in November 2010, when grave workers left two markers - instead of one - when they began the process of transferring the remains of a veteran’s father at that time. From there,... Read more →


The March for Life, the annual rally that serves to demonstrate against abortion in America, held its 44th edition on Friday, and it is fair to say that this year’s event had perhaps the greatest degree of support from a presidential administration as any that have come before. The most notable speaker to attend the 2017 march was Mike Pence, the newly-sworn Vice President of the United States. Pence is the first vice president to appear at the March for Life, and is the highest-ranking government official to attend the march since it began back in 1974. Previous to this... Read more →


This may work out for everybody. There have been rumblings for a while now concerning an effort on the Left Coast to ultimately see California secede from the union. Typically, whenever there is talk of a state seceding, it is largely dismissed out of hand as just talk. However, California has been seen for some time…by Californians as well by those who live everywhere else…as now being so different in values and culture from the rest of America that there might actually be something to the idea of California splitting away from the United States. This difference was emphasized in... Read more →

Veterans of the U.S. Secret Service, the agency responsible for protecting the President of the United States and members of his family, expressed to Fox News their amazement at an active agent’s declaration that she would go to jail rather than take a bullet for Donald Trump. You may have heard about Kerry O’Grady, the agent in charge of the Denver, Co. office, who wrote in a Facebook post back in October that she would not do her job and defend Trump if he was elected president: “As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate...

One of Planned Parenthood’s cornerstone defenses to the attacks against it, particularly the formal efforts at defunding the group, is that PP assists women who actually decide to keep their babies with prenatal care. However, a stunning video by the pro-life group Live Action appears to show that PP is all talk and NO action when it comes to providing assistance to those women who want to carry their fetuses to term. Live Action says the piece is its first in a series of “Abortion Corporation” videos designed to reveal that Planned Parenthood’s lone agenda is in the providing of... Read more →


It begins. Of all the issues on which President Donald Trump campaigned, it is illegal immigration and border security that resonated earliest, loudest, and most persistently. Now, the newest occupant of the White House appears to be wasting no time in getting to work on fulfilling his promises. As reported by a variety of news outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, Trump used the tool of executive action on Wednesday to get the ball rolling. One order essentially re-appropriates money from inside the Homeland Security budget to build a wall on the nation’s southern border. The order also mandates the construction... Read more →


So-called “heartbeat” abortion bills have had basically no luck in all of the instances in which they have been proposed at the state level, but that unfortunate track record isn’t stopping one lawmaker from making an effort at getting one passed at the federal level. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has formally proposed H.R. 490, the Heartbeat Protection Act of 2017, which would make it illegal for doctors to perform abortions once a heartbeat can be detected. “It is a profound religious and moral understanding that every human person has the right to life,” said King. “The question that has hung...

LAWYER GAMES is the TRUE story of the murder case that gave rise to the book and Clint Eastwood directed motion picture, Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil. But this book goes far beyond the boundaries of a single murder case. No reader of LAWYER GAMES will ever again look the same way at a criminal trial. In the early morning of May 2, 1981, Danny Hansford was shot dead by James Williams with a World War II vintage Luger in a historic Savannah mansion. For the next eight-and-a-half years, through four murder trials and intrigue which reached... Read more →
