An O’Fallon, Missouri man was arrested on April 23 after allegedly secretly filming women in a Target dressing room.
Matthew Foerstel, 26, faces felony charges for invasion of privacy in the second degree and unlawful possession of a firearm.
The Brentwood Police Department arrested Foerstel on April 23 after he allegedly held a camera phone under a dressing room door while a female shopper tried on swim suits at the Target store in Brentwood.
An officer went to Ranken Technical College to place Foerstel under arrest and reportedly found him in possession of a loaded handgun.
In 2013, Foerstel was convicted of invasion of privacy in St. Charles County for “knowingly and intentionally” filming an 11-year-old girl while she was partially nude inside a department store dressing room.… Continue Reading

It looks like the Republican candidates were right all along.
During a February debate in New Hampshire, U. S. Senator Marco Rubio called out the mainstream media for not asking the Democratic candidates about their positions on abortion. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, too, has consistently talked about Secretary Hillary Clinton’s extreme stances on the issue. Two months later, while vying for New York’s vote, Clinton decided it was time to bring out her favorite issue—abortion—and call out the media for not asking her about it in debates (town halls don’t count apparently).
Frankly, I agree with her . . . and the Republicans.
The question is: will the mainstream media really question Clinton on abortion? Or will they ask a question in a debate, allow her to give a vague answer, and not ask detailed follow up questions on her policy positions.… Continue Reading

With the Left attacking North Carolina as if it were, oh say, Saudi Arabia for wanting to protect the privacy rights of women in bathrooms and locker rooms, The Donald ran for cover (as I reported).
Guess who is running towards the good people of North Carolina and common sense values? Lion Ted:
“There have been very few complaints the way it is,” Trump told The Today Show. “People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate, there has been so little trouble.”
Hours later in Maryland, Cruz gave his response: “Let me ask you, have we gone stark raving nuts?”
“I’m the father of two little girls,” he added. “Here is basic common sense: Grown adult men, strangers, should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls.”
Cruz further pounded Trump for his “political correctness.”
“I am waiting with anticipation for the new baseball cap, ‘Make P.C.

One predictable element of the current Republican primaries is that each time Donald Trump‘s supposed inevitability is challenged, he will tell you it is because the process is unfair. He, his official spokesmen, his “unofficial” enforcers, his sycophantic “conservative media” surrogates, and his hornet’s nest of online commenters, consistently greet any momentary setback with a cacophonous chorus of “rigged,” “stolen,” and above all “unfair.”
To be fair to Trump, it is true that life really is unfair sometimes. Furthermore, it cannot be denied that political insiders beget more than their fair share of life’s unfairness (such as when they seek preferential treatment in their private business dealings by buying off politicians). So we must not let the crybaby antics of a front-running sore winner obscure the possibility that the GOP primaries really are unfair.… Continue Reading

John Kasich said on Sunday that he would “probably not” sign a bill preventing biological males from using women’s restrooms, locker rooms, and showers – and those who are hung up on the issue should “take a deep breath,” “chill out,” and “get over it.”
“Face the Nation” moderator John Dickerson ended his interview with the the Ohio governor and presidential hopeful by asking if Kasich would sign a bill similar to the one enacted by North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory. The new law strikes down a Charlotte ordinance giving those who identify as transgender the right to use the public accommodation of their chosen sex.
Dickerson said the act also “banned anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation” from being imposed statewide.
“Probably not,” Gov.… Continue Reading

Conservatives and other Barack Obama critics are entitled to a big “I told you so,” after Obama’s stunning admission that he doesn’t believe there’s that much difference between communism and capitalism.
Actually, it’s not that stunning to people paying attention. Many of us warned about Obama’s Marxist sympathies before he was first elected president, and we’ve repeatedly pointed it out during his presidency. Obama was raised and mentored by communists and spent many years engaged in community organizing (radical leftist activism). He established himself as the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate. Yet our warnings were met with cries of extremism, irrationality and, of course, racism. I wonder what these scolds would say now.
After playing his fiddle in Cuba and paying homage to the romanticized Marxist Castro regime while Belgium was burning, Obama spoke to a group of young people in Argentina.… Continue Reading

Donald Trump is a boor. He’s a vulgarian, a liar, an ignoramus. He has only the most cursory grasp of policy, a stentorian voice and a great big set of self-assurance. He’s winning the Republican nomination.
It is partly because of the Clintons.
While the media point and laugh at the Trump reality show carnival, they forget that the Clintons originally took us all to the circus. This week, we found out that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal now occupies the attention of 147 FBI agents, and that she will be questioned by the FBI. We found out that her pig husband allegedly snorted cocaine off the table of one of his former lovers in 1983, as well as gallivanted around her place wearing her nightie while playing the saxophone.… Continue Reading

This column is not about politics. It is about basic human decency, civility, and respect for women.
The latest fracas involving Donald Trump began when a Super PAC, unaffiliated with the Cruz campaign, produced an ad featuring a nude photo of Donald Trump’s wife wrapped in fur, taken from a GQ magazine spread.
Senator Ted Cruz and his campaign had nothing to do with the ad. In fact, they are prohibited by law from interacting with Super PACs in any way. The only way the senator could have gotten involved, by urging the Super PAC to take down the ad, for example, would be to break the law.
The truth, with whom he has a “tenuous relationship,” has never slowed Trump down. He immediately and falsely blamed the ad on Senator Cruz, just as he continues to falsely accuse him of lying about what went down in Iowa.… Continue Reading

Before he can crush the serial felon that is Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz has got to beat the serial liar that is Donald Trump. And he must do it before the love child of De Niro’s Wag the Dog and Pacino’s Simone becomes the Republican Presidential nominee. The Donald may be the biggest farce in American political history but he’s rallying the dispossessed with the verve and the acumen that The Governor showed in Woodbury.
Cruz had a solid game plan going into Super Tuesday but who would have thought that the perfect storm that is Hurricane Donald would have Archie Bunkered his way into the heart of the disenfranchised?
Turns out that those who have been chewed and screwed by the Republican establishment aren’t in a discerning type of mood, and they’ll raise the white tail to the first buck that prances by. … Continue Reading

Ever wonder how Bernie Sanders’ brand of “democratic socialism” differs from socialism in general, which has wreaked havoc all over the world?
The short answer is: only by degree. Progressives of all stripes work to establish “equality” by empowering governments. The difference is their place on the axis of forced egalitarianism.
Like other democratic socialists, the Vermont Democrat rejects communism, National Socialism (Nazis), fascism and other variants as anti-democratic. The democratic socialists insist that they can preserve human liberties while forcing everyone into communal economic arrangements. The key is to have “the people” collectively make all important economic decisions.
I ask: Have you ever been on a small committee? Can you imagine trying to get collective agreement on literally millions of economic decisions made by people every day?… Continue Reading
