    Cruz Compares Actual Abuse by IRS in Targeting Obama’s Political Opposition to Nixon’s Attempted Abuse of IRS At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the IRS scandal today, Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas), in his capacity as chairman of the relevant subcommittee, gave a hard-hitting opening statement, comparing the revenue agency’s actual abuses of political opponents during the Obama presidency to Richard Nixon’s unsuccessful attempt to use the agency to target political adversaries. The video is here; the transcript follows: We are here today convening this hearing for two unfortunate reasons. The main reason we are here is because we...

    ...The deputy suffered a two-and-a-half-inch cut to his forehead and multiple bodily injuries. The doctor told the deputy it looked like the cut was made by a box cutter. "They roughed him up, but the officer was able to press a button and release his K-9 from the backseat," Adam said. The dog bit at least one of the suspects, potentially saving the officer's life, Adam said. That was more than good equipment and a good dog, Adam said. "We have four K-9 units here, but only two of our vehicles are equipped with the pop mechanism," he said. But...

    NEW YORK – While skimming tens of millions of dollars from U.N. levies imposed on airline travelers, the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Aids Initiative worked closely with a pharmaceutical company in India to distribute “drastically substandard” generic antiretroviral drugs to Third World countries that had no chance of helping HIV/AIDs patients, according to a Wall Street analyst. As WND reported Wednesday, over the past six weeks, Charles Ortel shared with WND, prior to publication, the results of his six-month, in-depth investigation into what he characterizes as an elaborate scheme devised by the Clintons to enrich themselves. WND reported Thursday the...

    ( Very long original title: Barack Hussein Obama will join Turkish president Recep Erdogan at the opening of a new $100 million Turkish mega-mosquetrosity in Maryland.) By BI: In the last 100 years, only one new church has been given permission to build in Turkey (albeit on top of a graveyard). But in America, under the Obama Regime, Turkey is set to open a monstrous $100 million Islamic indoctrination and jihad training center in Maryland. Built on a 15-acre site, the Turkish Cultural Center will be the largest and most ostentatious example of Islamic supremacism in the Western hemisphere. ANADOLU...

Guiding values however, will be 100% American. The Enemies Within will name names, and and go where no one has gone in modern times, in its quest to awaken Americans to the enemies within their own government.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remained vague on her 2016 ambitions Monday, but said her biggest regret while leading the department was the 2012 attacks in Benghazi. “You make these choices based on imperfect information and you make them to — as we say — the best of your ability. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns,” Clinton said Monday during the National Automobile Dealers Association conference in New Orleans, according to video from CNN.

    He grew to hate Americans, but that didn't stop him from living off them. Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev and other family members received state welfare benefits until last year, Massachusetts officials confirmed to the Boston Herald on Tuesday night. The 26-year-old Tsarnaev was killed in a bloody gun battle with authorities early Friday morning, and his younger brother and accomplice Dzhokhar was captured alive later that evening. Dzhokhar, 19, was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction and could face the death penalty.

A group of students from Bard College led two workshops for the youth, separated by gender.During the workshop for girls, the 13 and 14-year-olds were told to ask one another for a kiss. They were...

    If any recent day typifies life in this crazy modern world, it was probably this past Tuesday. World financial markets were in a meltdown and the Federal Reserve held an emergency meeting to cut the interest rate a massive three quarters of a point in an attempt to stave off a precipitous stock market drop. President Bush was working with congressional leaders on an economic stimulus package to reduce the likelihood of a recession. Meanwhile the U.S. presidential campaign was in full swing with Hillary and Obama having just ripped each other to shreds at a debate, and Fred Thompson...

    Ray: Sammi provides a partial translation of a notebook that appears to be from an Iraqi connected with the former SSO. The Center for Non-Proliferation Studies describes the SSO: If authentic, this document helps to establish the role that Syria played with Iraq as an arms provider. A lot of people may not realize this but Syria provided Iraq with many conventional munitions before the Gulf War and after. It is a little easier to accept the "Mission Impossible" sounding plot that Saddam moved remaining WMD to Syria if you realize they were sneaking weapons across the border all the...

    Is the NEA Paying for ASU’s Education Policy Research? Last month, ASU’s Education Policy Studies Laboratory (EPSL) headed by Professor Alex Molnar unveiled a new Think Tank Review Project. “Many think tank reports are little more than ideological argumentation dressed up as research,” explained Professor Molnar. One wonders whether Professor Molnar recalls whether those living in glass houses ought to throw stones. In 2002, an EPSL report offered the concluding recommendation that: “No existing charter school or private school voucher program funded by public money should be expanded,” arguing, “The existing evidence fails to support such expansion.” That year, Columbia...

    One of our regulars brought this story to our attention. The AP is reporting that "federal spending totaled $250 billion" in March, "up 13.7 percent from March 2005." The federal deficit for the month was "$85.5 billion, a record imbalance for March." Combine huge budget deficits with trade deficits running at a $800 billion annualized basis, and you have a prescription for economic disaster.

    “The only reason why Mao Zedung is given the bad reputation he has is because of the bourgeois press and their racism toward the Chinese,” said Marlene Kowal’s professor on the first day of the history class, Contemporary China. Kowal, a senior at Temple University in Pennsylvania, offered a number of examples of things frequently said in classrooms at Temple and presumably at other universities across the country when she spoke last week at the Academic Freedom conference in Washington, D.C. In the same class, Kowal’s professor declared herself to be a Maoist and that the purpose of her teaching...

    Although they still claim to be the last best hope for public education, the influence of teachers’ unions has wanted so much that criticism of the association’s and federations has spread beyond conservative and Republican groups to the school boards and superintendents that they once made and broke. “There is a teacher I have hired and I don’t know if he’s with us on our team,” Baltimore Talent Development High School principal Jeffrey Robinson said at a recent meeting at the National Academies of Science. “I know the unions have their rules and something must be done about the unions.”...

    Supporters of education have always sought to prevent the systematic imposition of views on students, said U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee at the first national Academic Freedom conference last week. The conference was held by David Horowitz’ Students for Academic Freedom on April 6 and 7 at the Washington Court Hotel in D.C. Delivering the keynote speech during breakfast, Alexander spoke on issues of political one-sidedness that he believes dominates American campuses. The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) was incensed by political one-sidedness of the right years ago, but now the problem is on the left said Alexander....

    Free Republic has always been good at organization. I saw it when I first joined years ago during the 2000 rallies. I have seen it on other issues. Action was taken and whether it was big or small, a difference was made. Right now we have been writing letters and making calls about the illegal immigrants and the demonstrations. Any ideas on what we should be doing now?
