    PolitiFact.com has been rating the truth of political statements since 2007. We grabbed the 2000 or so pages of people who had listed affiliations of Democrat, Independent, or Republican, kept only those who had at least 20 statements rated, ran a few python scripts, and produced this list of the ten most honest and most lying politicians. The “Honesty Index” is our invention (it’s the weighted average of how many truths and lies each person told) where 1.0 means they always told the total truth, and 0.0 means they only told pants-on-fire lies. “Percent Lies” is just that: what percentage...

    In the midst of economic crisis, the government a lot of money is spent on a cake for the "birthday" of Hugo Chavez, in a "celebration" that was held Thursday at the CDLM (Cuartel Mountain, January 23, Caracas) and also it included singers to llanera music. At least 1.20 meters and 90 kilos more ingredients were required for the "architectural replica" of the headquarters of the mountain that ended in the "whiskers" of Nicholas. Below is a list of the budget for the cake of "absent": Kilo of wheat flour: Approximately 2,000 Bolivars (Second-hand in Catia or Petare, by shortages)....

    The space company Sierra Nevada shipped the world’s first private, pilot-less space shuttle to California for testing Thursday. The pilot-less shuttle, called Dream Chaser, will undergo its first test flight later in 2016, and the Sierra Nevada plans to send the shuttle into space in late 2019. “We’re going to take it up to a very high altitude. We’re going to drop it and it’s going to fly itself,” Mark Sirangelo, the vice president of Sierra Nevada Space Systems, told a local Colorado news outlet. “It’s autonomous space vehicle, which means that onboard computers control everything that it does.” Currently,...

    Over 1,000 Cuban Doctors With Brazilian Families Now Caught in Difficult Situation Brazil’s Ministry of Health has made a request to the Cuban government and the Panamerican Organization of Health (POH) in hopes of allowing Cuban doctors extend their stay in the country. Brazilian Minister of Health Ricardo Barros said Thursday, July 21 that the “More Doctors Program” created in 2013 by Dilma Rousseff — in which 11,429 Cuban doctors have participated — is unfortunately only “provisional.” Though he did not mark a date for the end of the federal program initiated by Rousseff’s adminstration, the Health Minister told the...

    Democrats have spent years insisting there is too much money in politics and angling to impose heavy regulations on Wall Street investors and hedge fund managers. But a review of political donations by hedge fund donors finds their big money has heavily favored Hillary Clinton over businessman Donald Trump. According to the review of donations by hedge fund owners and employees, Hillary Clinton has been the recipient of up to $122.7 million in political donations this election cycle. Donald Trump, however, has gotten a paltry $19,000 from that same segment of donors.

    Even after Philadelphia, the momentum of the race to the White House points in Trump’s direction. After what even critics said was a highly effective Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton appears to have emerged as . . . the underdog. Conventional wisdom has long held that Mrs. Clinton will capture the White House in November, regardless of the challenges her candidacy faces. With three months to go, that calculus looks shaky. The 2016 election is trending toward Donald Trump. Mr. Trump is surging as well in swing states, where he is now slightly ahead, within the margin of error, or...

    Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan’s purge of political enemies after a counterfeit coup attempt has compromised U.S. led operations against the Islamic State. Many of the senior Turkish officers who were working with the United States have been either removed from military service or jailed. After the staged coup, President Erdogan began purging the military, with approximately 1,700 military personnel receiving dishonorable discharges including nearly half of the nation’s admirals and generals. The Turkish military had traditionally been the vanguard against the country being taken over by a dictator. Erdogan, however, greatly increased the size and strength of Turkey’s national police...

Corruption and incompetence were excused. Politicians in Washington have done too little too slowly to fix it. This situation can never happen again, and when Donald J. Trump is president, it will be fixed – fast. The guiding principle of the Trump plan is ensuring veterans have convenient access to the best quality care. To further this principle, the Trump plan will decrease wait times, improve healthcare outcomes, and facilitate a seamless...

    The three core principles of Donald J. Trump's immigration plan When politicians talk about “immigration reform” they mean: amnesty, cheap labor and open borders. The Schumer-Rubio immigration bill was nothing more than a giveaway to the corporate patrons who run both parties. Real immigration reform puts the needs of working people first – not wealthy globetrotting donors. We are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. That must change. Here are the three core principles of real immigration reform: 1.

    Hillary and the federal government are determined to ensure a "fair" and "open" election this November and will stop at nothing to reverse discrimination against "oppressed" segments of the American electorate, well at least if you live in a large swing state. This morning, the WSJ reported that the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia struck down North Carolina's voter ID law just days after we wrote about Virginia's similar effort to register 200,000 "oppressed" felons. The ruling asserts that North Carolina's law violated the Voting Rights Act by discriminating against low-income and minority voters, saying: “In...

    Top Donald Trump donors tried to set up a meeting between the GOP presidential nominee and Charles Koch in Colorado Springs on Friday, but Koch aides rejected the entreaties, according to two Republicans with knowledge of the outreach. Koch and his brother David Koch, who helm an influential network of advocacy groups and major conservative donors, have been sharply critical of Trump’s rhetoric and policy stances and have indicated they do not intend to support his campaign. Trump in turn has blasted the Kochs and other major conservative donors as puppeteers to whom his GOP primary rivals were beholden, while...

    After 15 years, the US's counter-terror strategy has 'unequivocally failed' Apple and Google, two of the country’s biggest employers, don’t mess around with failure. Leaders either produce or they’re gone. Major League Baseball and National Football League teams have one standard for their leaders: get us into the playoffs or you’re fired. The government’s foreign policy elites, however, don’t have to succeed to keep their jobs. Unlike the rest of America, when U.S. leaders in foreign policy fail, they are rewarded or promoted, while the 330 million Americans living outside the Washington beltway foot the bill.

But China gains no new market access to the United States.” None of what President Clinton promised came true.

This legislation, passed by totally partisan votes in the House and Senate and signed into law by the most divisive and partisan President in American history, has tragically but predictably resulted in runaway costs, websites that don’t work, greater rationing of care, higher premiums, less competition and fewer choices.

Fellowship with Christ is built on love, trust, and obedience. The recipients of 1 Peter, like us, had never seen Christ but they enjoyed fellowship with Him just the same. And their fellowship was genuine because it was marked by love, trust, and obedience. The love Peter speaks of in 1 Peter 1:8 isn't shallow emotionalism or sentimentality.

To such people, liberal media bias exists but it is something that they in their great wisdom can overcome. Contrary to the consultants’ claims, however, empirical research conducted...

    After nearly a week of testimony and consideration given to the punishment he will face, a Seattle doctor who admitted to murdering his partner and their toddler son was sentenced to 49 years in prison -- the maximum allowed. Louis Chen, 44, pleaded guilty to reduced charges in February, wanting to avoid a trial. He was sentenced Friday by King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman. Chen's defense attorneys spent this week arguing that his mental problems -- and a possibly psychosis-inducing intake of cough syrup -- fueled actions he would otherwise have never committed. On those grounds, they lobbied...

    Obama really said this Wednesday night: “I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” You don’t say, Mr. President? So why don’t we size up her, uh, qualifications, eminent as they might be, compared to some of the prior, lesser 44 occupants of the office. Dwight Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander. Hillary ran the Bimbo Eruptions Unit. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Hillary wrote “It Takes a Village.” Teddy Roosevelt...

These voter machines are essentially a computer. Who is to say they could not be rigged?” asked Stone on the topic of voter fraud. “Of course they can. Now, you ask me why the Republicans don’t do it, but sadly I think they do,” Stone said. “That’s why I briefly had to leave...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign computers have been hacked, said sources who added Friday that the Russian government is likely responsible for yet another attack on Democrats. The newly revealed attack comes after computer networks for the Democratic National Committee and the party’s fund-raising committee for congressional candidates were also hacked. A trove of stolen e-mails from the party — released last week — resulted in the downfall of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who resigned as a result of explosive revelations. The Justice Department’s national-security division is investigating the cyber attacks. The FBI warned the Clinton campaign in March that it...

    Leaders of military medicine are promising TRICARE beneficiaries a smooth transition of healthcare coverage next year when three support contract regions (North, South and West) are reorganized into two (East and West), and many TRICARE users see different contractors take charge of civilian provider networks that deliver health benefits off base.
