New website layout for Radio Vice Online

By Steve McGough / July 31, 2015 /

I’m not sure how long we’ve had the current website theme in place, but it’s been a long time. Even though I have not been writing for quite some time, we needed to make a change.

For Obama, federal government reach has NO limit – Free college proposed

By Steve McGough / January 9, 2015 /

For years, I’ve been advocating the complete shutdown of the U.S. Department of Education. In the United States Constitution, funding of education is never mentioned or implied, but for 35 years federal government has been handing out cash to states and school systems in return for capitulating to prescribed standards and rules created by federal bureaucrats. Now…

A portion of the Christmas message from President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy. Dec. 24, 1981.

Video: Officer defends himself, shoots teen near Ferguson, Mo.

By Steve McGough / December 24, 2014 /

Overnight, a police officer shot and killed a teenager outside a gas station in Berkeley, Mo. just west of Ferguson. I almost never write about breaking news anymore. Usually when some sort of tragic event happens, the information in the first hours or days turns out to be totally wrong. But today, I’ll make an exception…

Airline employee smuggles 153 guns through Atlanta to New York

By Steve McGough / December 23, 2014 /

Those arrested moved up to 20 or more guns at a time via Delta flights in the passenger cabin. There are a couple questions you should think about when reading this story. First, why are guns being smuggled to New York? (Hint, it has absolutely nothing to do with restrictive gun laws in New York.) Second, where…

Brown family reaction: “Burn this bitch down”

By Steve McGough / November 25, 2014 /

The small group is quiet and reverent for the first few moments after they realize the grand jury did not deliver the indictment they were looking for. Lesley McSpadden tearfully speaks. CNN and The New York Times captured the video at this moment. Then came the demand to “burn this bitch down” by McSpadden’s husband…

Furguson grand jury testimony, reports, witness interviews released

By Steve McGough / November 25, 2014 /

Overnight, documents were released revealing what we are told includes all of the information the grand jury in Ferguson had when it made the decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the self-defense shooting of Michael Brown. We are not privy to the deliberations of the grand jury because it is private.

Ferguson grand jury expectations – Update: No Indictment

By Steve McGough / November 24, 2014 /

As I begin typing this post, it’s about 8:10 p.m. ET, 50 minutes or so prior to the announcement concerning the grand jury’s decision in Ferguson. They are making the decision if Officer Darren Wilson should be indicted for shooting and killing Michael Wilson in Missouri.

Obama immigration Executive Order speech wrap-up

By Steve McGough / November 21, 2014 /

I watched only a few moments last night, and listened for a few more. It concerns me the president referenced Reagan and Bush 41 regulations and interpretations of laws* passed in Congress in comparison to his Executive Order that will completely ignore current law. But that’s not all conservatives are rightfully bitching about.

Fast & Furious: Holder’s email on Issa’s “idiot cronies”

By Steve McGough / November 11, 2014 /

On election day, the Department of Justice released about 65,000 Fast & Furious-related documents subpoenaed more than two years ago by the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform. The DOJ claimed the documents were privileged, but our friend John Hinderaker over at Power Line doesn’t think so. I’ve got a comment on Attorney General Eric…
