Wisconsin-based Three Square Market will soon offer its employees the option of having microchips implanted under their skin. The technology will work in tandem with computers, allow employees to pay for food, and open doors. (KSTP-TV ABC-5 Wisconsin screenshot)

Human microchips -- coming to Wisconsin company near you

A Wisconsin company is asking employees if they want to get a microchip implanted in their hands, in the space between the thumb and forefinger. Welcome to the next era -- a creepier, more intrusive, less private era where the lines between constitutional and not grow fuzzy and the opportunity for unintended consequences to grow seems unlimited.

Trump's right: It's a sewer, not a swamp

President Donald Trump tweeted in the lead-up to Jared Kushner's widely waited for Senate-Russia testimony that it's not a swamp he's trying to drain. It's a sewer. And yes indeed, that description is much more apt. Published July 25, 2017

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, speaks to reporters in reaction to news that Donald Trump Jr. revealed emails that show him discussing plans to hear damaging information on Hillary Clinton, and that the Russian government was behind the information on Clinton, his father's opponent in the presidential election, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, July 11, 2017.

Trump, Schumer, Clinton, Kushner and the 'sleazy' Adam Schiff

And they're off -- that's the tenor of Monday's politics, as Jared Kushner headed to the Senate Intelligence Committee to testify that he did not collude with Russia to sway U.S. elections. And everybody's got an opinion -- but the most surprising so far is from Sen. Chuck Schumer. Published July 24, 2017

Jeb Bush rallies Republicans to scold Trump on Russia

Jeb Bush, former Florida governor, former presidential hopeful and former loud critic of President Donald Trump, has stepped back into the political arena to call out his fellow Republicans as hypocrites -- for not publicly condemning Trump. Sigh. Why do entrenched Republicans insist on picking public fights with fellow GOPers? Published July 24, 2017

Scaramucci, you go: Fire the leakers

Anthony Scaramucci, new White House communications director, apparently ain't playing. When asked by CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson what would happen to leakers and whistleblowers under Scaramucci's watch, the newbie fired off this reply: "They're going to get fired." Good.

Linda Sarsour: Even CNN's Jake Tapper sees your deceptions

Linda Sarsour, defender of all things Islam and hater of all things President Donald Trump, has apparently gone a bit too far with her radical rhetoric, and raised the eyebrows of even those on the left -- of even some of her once-staunch supporters. Published July 22, 2017

Media jumps to showcase Scaramucci as Trump's new failure

Democrats shun 'resistance' to become Party of Pizza

Democrats, party of election-time failure, have decided their "resistance" slogan isn't doing them any good and have adopted a new tag line they hope will wing them across the finish line come 2018. It's from the pizza commercial, Papa John's. Published July 21, 2017

Red flag rising: Eric Holder says Mueller's ethically OK

Eric Holder just said President Donald Trump has no cause to question the integrity of special counsel Robert Mueller. Now you know Trump does. A thumbs-up on ethics from Holder is pretty much a red flag for the truly ethical to run. Published July 21, 2017

Joe Biden, drunk on capitalism, charging big bucks for signed books

Joe Biden, the same guy who served under one of America's most rabid wealth distributors in modern political times -- Barack Obama -- and the same guy who presents as oh so very much concerned with the plight of the middle class, has taken a fat cat step toward Profit Lane. Published July 20, 2017

Baltimore cops, giving police everywhere a bad name

A Baltimore police officer named Richard Pinheiro was caught by his own body camera planting -- allegedly -- illegal drugs at the scene of an arrest. This is beyond ruh-roh. This is egregious, criminal -- and politically hot. Published July 20, 2017

John McCain: In cancer, he unites

Now, even those who can't stand his politics -- who've fought him tooth and nail over policy, legislation, RINO-ism and globalism -- wish him well, hope for the best and send him prayers. This is how God works: through struggles, a light. Published July 20, 2017

Republicans, thy name is mud

Republicans, as a party, are reeling at their most recent failure -- an epic one -- regarding repeal-replace Obamacare. Stumbling seems to be Republicans' new mode of transportation. What's insanely angering about it is they're stumbling over their own roadblocks. Published July 20, 2017

Rand Paul, atop white horse, rescues Obamacare PR

Republicans are having a head-hanging moment, to be sure, on Obamacare. So it's with no small measure of relief that Sen. Rand Paul has seemingly rode in on a white horse, to give the party a new public relations message on Obamacare that keeps Republicans afloat. Published July 19, 2017
