Trey Gowdy Violated the Golden Rule in the Clinton Benghazi Hearing

October 26, 2015

Watching Rep. Trey Gowdy chair the Hillary Clinton Benghazi hearing left me wondering. What I saw and heard on television during that hearing, and what Mr. Gowdy has said on other occasions just didn’t seem to match up. I’m wondering where the disconnect is.

The author presented it as a free speech issue. “[T]he last time I checked this is still a ‘free country’, where […]

Sunnie Kahle is an 8-year-old girl. But in the eyes of the staff at Timberlake Christian Schools, she dressed and acted more like a boy. After consulting by phone with Sunnie’s grandparents (her grandmom is her guardian), administrators at the school felt they had to take action, and sent the grandmother the following letter.  Dear […]
