Paul Craig Roberts

The president signed an executive order calling for the Department of Justice to convene a task force to go after transnational criminal organizations like MS-13.
Bill O’Reilly joined Roger Ailes in enforced retirement on Wednesday. Both were accused of sexual harassment. Not to worry though.

Bill O’Reilly Sexual Harassment Charges Lift All Boats Also, there’s
Tulsa’s had some really inept and corrupt county election board secretaries. And the State Election Chief, Paul Ziriax, doesn’t seem to be elevating the standards. Gwen Freeman was just appointed to the post, due to the heavy lobbying of Senator Dan Newberry. The last county chief, Patty Bryant, got her job in a similar manner, when former Senator Jim Williamson intervened. Her team corrupted some really bad situations, leading to judicial intervention a […]
