    Planned Parenthood is now offering “in home sex ed.” Pretty weird? It is called the Responsible Sex Education Institute and the largest chain of abortion clinics says it, “educates and empowers individuals and communities to make responsible choices regarding their sexuality and sexual health by serving as a source for safe, confidential, unbiased, and accurate information about sex and sexuality.” But, just what are they teaching? Apparently, not abstinence…. Rebecca Engle Planned ParenthoodRebecca Engel, Education Program Manager for the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ sex-ed program, told Trans* Youth Channel that abstinence education does not work.

    Writing in the Washington Post, Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democratic Senator from Rhode Island, offered a curious suggestion for dealing with global warming skeptics: (Snip) That's right -- a sitting U.S. Senator is suggesting RICO laws should be applied to global warming skeptics. Courts have been defining RICO down for some time and in ways that aren't particularly helpful. In 1994, the Supreme Court ruled RICO statutes could be applied to pro-life activists on the grounds that interstate commerce can be affected even when the organization being targeted doesn't have economic motives. (Snip) In February, Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., attempted a...

    Politico ^ | 6-2-2015 | ILYA SHEYMAN and CHARLES CHAMBERLAIN
    Today we announce the suspension of our campaign to draft Elizabeth Warren into the presidential race. There’s no sugar-coating it: We didn’t achieve our central goal. But there’s a bigger story that gives us tremendous hope: as one headline put it, “Elizabeth Warren may not be running, but she’s in the 2016 race anyway.” In the six months since we launched the Run Warren Run effort, Senator Warren’s agenda and message have transformed the American political landscape. Echoing Warren’s famous adage that “the game is rigged,” Hillary Clinton declared in her campaign announcement that “the deck is still stacked in...

    Denny Hastert — the former House speaker now indicted for violating regulations on bank withdrawals that were originally meant to snare drug dealers — was a man of integrity according to his former House colleagues. By the sketchy standards of Illinois politics, that might well have been true. But his fall from grace should prompt other questions about how a former high-school teacher who held elective office from 1981 to 2007 could leave Congress with a fortune estimated at $4 million to $17 million. When he entered Congress in 1987, he was worth at most $275,000. Hastert was the...

    BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon. According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department. He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core...

    A week ago Friday was an unusual day for the editorial page of The New York Times. An unsigned editorial in the paper lashed out at the president for his public statements about reengaging in Iraq. A Paul Krugman column attacked the administration’s defense of the new trade agreement. Both pieces said the administration was being … (how shall we say it?) … dishonest. Granted, this was nothing like the language Krugman and the Times typically use to describe Republicans. A few days earlier, Krugman accused Jeb Bush of “cowardice and vileness” with respect to his statements about Iraq. In...

    UNITED NATIONS — The boys said they approached the French soldiers because they were hungry. Some were so young that they didn't quite understand the acts the soldiers demanded in return. One boy, 8 or 9 years old, said he did it several times to the same soldier, "until one day an older kid saw him and told him what he was doing was bad." Another boy, 9, said he thought the soldiers had been urinating. United Nations investigators heard such stories of sexual abuse from several boys in May and June 2014 in Central African Republic, where French soldiers...

Mark Chelgren recently made headlines when he introduced Senate File 64, “an Act relating to the teaching effectiveness and employment of professors” at Iowa public institutions. Each year, the bill stipulates, any faculty who fails “to attain a minimum threshold of performance” based solely on student evaluations would be automatically fired regardless of rank or tenure. Lest you think that firing professors based on a questionable assessment metric affords them too much dignity, rest assured there is more. Some beleaguered governing body...

Ortel says the public record appears to confirm that the Clinton Foundation’s various components were reported as one consolidated entity to...

    Labour’s former council leader in Thanet, Iris Johnston, has been caught on camera allegedly ‘helping’ a member of the public to cast their ballot during last Thursday’s election. The votes for Thanet District Council took place on the same day as the General Election, when UKIP leader Nigel Farage was attempting to be elected as the Member of Parliament for South Thanet. ... Johnston’s proximity to the voter may well qualify as compromising the secrecy of the ballot, something that worried the Conservative Party’s Paul Messenger, who took the photo.

Stephanopoulos apologized Thursday and said he should have revealed the contributions, which were initially reported at $50,000. But an ABC official told Fox News on Thursday afternoon the anchor has changed that number, to $75,000. He is also pledging not to moderate any presidential debates, Fox News has learned. The...

    The federal voter registration form has zero safeguards. She was only caught because she accidentally self-reported. Last week, the Department of Justice Board of Immigration Appeals upheld a decision to deport Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick for voting in a federal election. Fitzpatrick registered to vote in Illinois using the federal “Motor Voter” registration form. Fitzpatrick’s criminal act is one more example demonstrating that non-citizens voting in American elections is not a myth. The opinion by the Board of Immigration appeals stated: On August 5, 2005, she applied for an Illinois driver’s license and signed a voter registration application in which...

    Election 2016: The State Department is dragging its feet with unusual delays in releasing records pertaining to presidential contender Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state. Some requests are up to four years old. It's not as if the Associated Press and others that filed the Freedom of Information Act requests were asking for Clinton's private diaries or the encryption codes used by the State Department. Among the requests are such seemingly innocuous things as schedules, appointment, travel records, where and when she traveled, and who she traveled and met with. There are items, however, that a 2016 presidential candidate...

    This past Sunday, the lives of the Rev. Kaci Clark-Porter and the Rev. Holly Clark-Porter intertwined in perhaps an even more extraordinarily spiritual way, as the couple walked down the aisle at Wilmington, Delaware’s First and Central Presbyterian Church to become ordained Christian ministers. The ordination came just days after the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) announced a change in its constitution that embraced a more inclusive definition of marriage, defining it as being between "two people" instead of between a man and a woman. With this change, PC(USA) becomes the largest Protestant group to offer a nationwide welcome for LGBTQ...

    Yesterday, the Department of Justice offered a curious contrast in their fight against corruption, with actions in two cases sending competing messages. Apart, each case has its own highlights, and cover very different kinds of alleged corruption. Put together, though, it seems to tell an intriguing story about how this Department of Justice views its mission, and its targets, which is the subject of my column today at The Fiscal Times: Nearly eleven months later, the Department of Justice has decided to pass on enforcing the contempt charge. Even though Lerner offered testimony in her opening statement and her...

    An email obtained by The Associated Press shows that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office rebuffed interview requests with a federal agent investigating the U.S. government's investor-visa program. The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Inspector General twice asked McAuliffe for an interview in the summer of 2014 but said in a recent report that the efforts were "unsuccessful." McAuliffe spokesman Brian Coy told The AP the governor was too busy "running the commonwealth" to sit down with investigators but offered to provide any specific information agents needed.

    The Justice Department will not seek criminal contempt charges against former IRS official Lois Lerner, the central figure in a scandal that erupted over whether the tax agency improperly targeted conservative political groups. Ronald Machen, the former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, told House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) in a seven-page letter this week that he would not bring a criminal case to a grand jury over Lerner’s refusal to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March 2014. The House approved a criminal contempt resolution against Lerner in May 2014, and Machen’s office has...

    Earlier this month we reported the official Star Wars canon would get its first LGBT character in the form of Moff Mors. She makes her debut in Paul S. Kemp‘s upcoming novel Star Wars: Lords of the Sith next month — but it seems her presence might ultimately stretch beyond the books. According to a new rumor, Moff Mors will make the leap to the big screen in one of the spinoffs, and might even appear in a live-action series. More on the LGBT Star Wars character’s possible screen debut after the jump. The report comes from Cinelinx. They’re the same...

    She can’t help herself. Hillary Clinton is addicted to deception. The news that she used an iPad as well as BlackBerry demolishes her already-ridiculous claim that she set up a private e-mail server so she would only need to carry one gadget as secretary of state. At a March 10 press conference, Clinton put it this way: “I thought using one device would be simpler, and, obviously, it hasn’t worked out that way. Looking back, it would have been probably . . . smarter to have used two devices.” Those comments, her first public ones on the scandal, are now...

    The White House reacted to the news today that Chairman Trey Gowdy of the House Select Committee On Benghazi requested an interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding the use of her private email address and her home server. During the White House press briefing today, Earnest said that the issue was now in the hands of Clinton and her lawyers as well as the leaders of the congressional committee. “I don’t have an opinion on it,” Earnest said, when asked about the request by reporters, reminding them that the former Secretary of State was acting as a “private...

    On top of an $18.9 million Defense Department grant doled out in Sept. 2010, the Institute received $13.6 million from the Department of Education, according to USASpending.gov. In the 2009 federal budget, another $5.8 million was appropriated through the Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services.
