Man Lands Gyrocopter At Capitol To Protest Corruption

Florida resident Doug Hughes flew 65 miles from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to Washington, D.C. in his gyrocopter before landing in front of the Capitol building Wednesday afternoon. The 61-year-old postal worker flew into the restricted airspace in a publicity stunt to draw attention to campaign finance reform. 

I’m going to land on the Capitol Mall in front of the Capitol Building. I’m going to have 535 letters strapped to the landing gear in boxes, and those letters are going to addressed to every member of Congress.

Mr. Hughes intended to deliver the stamped letters in a non-violent attempt to protest government corruption and to prompt lawmakers to advance campaign finance reform. He said that campaign finance reform must be fixed before addressing other problems.

There are these problems and these problems and these problems, that are much more important than campaign finance reform; but those won’t get addressed until we fix campaign finance reform.

Hughes was questioned by the Secret Service in 2013 after revealing his plan to a Tampa Bay Times reporter. He told them he had no intention to hurt himself or anyone else. Once Hughes landed, he was arrested by Capitol police; and the Capitol Building was put into temporary lockdown. However, the focus of Hughes’ publicity stunt to address campaign finance reform has been overshadowed by the Department of Homeland Security and the FAA wondering how a small, ultra-light aircraft could have flown undetected into a restricted No-Fly zone.

DEA Chief Says She Can’t Fire Agents Involved In Sex Parties

Drug Enforcement Agency Administrator Michele Leonhart told the House Oversight Committee that she cannot fire or discipline agents for participating in sex parties with prostitutes while working in Colombia. Representative Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., asked Leonhart what punishment she has recommended for misbehavior in the past.

Under Civil Service law I cannot recommend a penalty, I can’t intervene in the disciplinary process. I can’t even make a recommendation.

Mr. Gowdy inquired if Ms. Leonhart has any actual authority over these DEA agents.

Honestly, what power do you have? You have to work with agents over whom you can’t discipline and have no control and you have no control over the security clearance. What the hell do you get to do?

Representative Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., compared flirting with a co-worker versus engaging in sex with a cartel-supplied prostitute.

If I flirt with a co-worker in the office and that constitutes sexual harassment. I can be fired. But I can take an underage hooker from a cartel I’m investigating, and you can’t fire me. Is that what we’re talking about here?

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Mr. Mulvaney that it depends on how the employee is charged:

If you charge the offense (sexual harassment), removal is a possibility. If you charge something less… you don’t charge what actually occurred, that’s when the ability to discipline is limited.

The DEA issued letters of caution and some unpaid suspensions to the agents involved, but nobody was fired.

Marco Rubio Announces Campaign ‘Yesterday Is Over’

C-SPAN

Florida Senator Marco Rubio is the third Republican to formally announce his candidacy for president; he did so at a packed rally yesterday at Miami’s Freedom Tower. Rubio made his declaration just one day after Democrat Hillary Clinton officially jumped into the race. Rubio wasted no time in taking a jab at Hillary Clinton by declaring that yesterday is over.

Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday, began a campaign for President by promising to take us back to yesterday. But yesterday is over, and we are never going back.

Fox News contributor and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said that Rubio gives voters a distinct choice.

Basically he is saying do you want old or do want new? And he is also implying versus Jeb Bush, do you want privileged or unprivileged? And I’m the One, that’s his attractiveness. He promises youth, energy and a new leaf.

Hobby Lobby Founders Honored By Christian University

hobbylobby

The founders of Hobby Lobby, David and Barbara Green, were the recipients of the Daniel Award from Arizona Christian University at a banquet in Scottsdale Thursday night. Mr. Green told the audience that God called upon his family to take a stand against the government’s mandate to provide life-terminating drugs and devices in their company’s health insurance plan.

And also God calls us to take a stand. We have to take a stand. And that’s what happened when the government asked us to take life. We believe, without question, that life begins at conception.

The Greens’ request for an injunction was denied by several courts. Then they went to the Tenth Circuit Court and asked all the judges to review their case.

We asked the Tenth Circuit to have all the judges look at it, which rarely, rarely ever happens. Because of the prayers, they looked at it, they saw it and they gave us the injunction. The injunction happened on Friday and we would’ve had to start paying thus fine on the following Monday morning. So God came through at the very last minute.
