    During a town hall-style agricultural symposium in Mankato, Minn., on Wednesday, Democratic lawmakers were left speechless after a citizen asked a very simple question about Obamacare.Screengrab via KEYC-TV The question: “I thought the Affordable Care Act would save $2500 per family. What happened?”Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Rep. Tim Walz, both of Minnesota, seemingly didn’t know how to respond. In fact, the room erupted in laughter after the two just stared at each other. Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), who also attended the meeting, was the only one prepared to respond.“I voted ‘no’, so I’ll let these guys handle that,” he said,...

    Likud Beytenu MKs prepared for the possibility that Israeli citizens will be included in the next prisoner release, submitting bills to deny terrorists National Insurance Institute allowances. "This bill is meant to stop the absurd situation in which a person enjoys benefits from the country he harmed," MK David Rotem (Likud Beytenu) said Wednesday. Rotem and coalition chairman Yariv Levin (Likud Beytenu) proposed almost identical bills taking away NII pensions and unemployment payments from terrorists freed in a prisoner release deal. The bills would not allow terrorists to receive funds from the NII during the duration of their original sentence,...

Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile...

    Berlin - The head of an umbrella organisation for Muslims in Germany on Monday rebuffed a call by a Jewish leader to do more to combat anti-Semitism after a rabbi was brutally attacked in Berlin.

The beating last Tuesday of 53-year-old rabbi Daniel Alter in front of his young daughter, allegedly by a group of Arab youths, has been roundly condemned. The president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Dieter Graumann, urged...

    Jews have no history in the city of Jerusalem: They have never lived there, the Temple never existed, and Israeli archaeologists have admitted as much. Those who deny this are simply liars. Or so says Sheik Tayseer Rajab Tamimi, chief Islamic judge of the Palestinian Authority. His claims, made last month, would be laughable if they weren't so common among Palestinians. Sheik Tamimi is only the latest to insist that, in his words, Jerusalem is solely "an Arab and Islamic city and it has always been so." His comments come on the heels of those by Shamekh Alawneh, a lecturer...

    Personally, I blame Bill Clinton Bill Clinton was an incredibly skilled politician. He mastered the five "D"s of political dodgeball (deny, deceive, denounce, distract, and deny) better than any national figure in my lifetime. He redefined what it means to be great at politics. He also convinced an entire American generation of the uselessness of politicians. The one-two punch of the irrelevance of the Clinton presidency, followed so closely by the profound power of 9/11, has created a climate in which being good at politics is a political negative. We don't want Huey Longs or LBJs or even Ronald Reagans....

Under federal law, only a conviction for a crime against the United States, such as treason or espionage, can cause a member of Congress or other federal employee to lose his or her government pension. That means Cunningham, a San Diego-area Republican, will keep his pension despite admitting taking $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors and others in exchange for government...

The denials came a day after the committee investigating corruption in the U.N. oil-for-food program released new evidence purporting to show that the two politicians, from Britain and France, received vouchers for Iraqi oil in exchange for supporting Saddam's regime. British lawmaker George Galloway called the claim against him "patently absurd." Former French Interior Minister Charles Pasqua said he has already repeatedly denied having "received any benefit...

The statement by the archbishop of Atlanta, along with bishops in Charlotte, N.C., and Charleston, S.C., is the most stringent yet as Catholic bishops nationwide debate whether pro-choice politicians are worthy of the rite. The announcement affects at least 200 churches in Georgia and the Carolinas.
