    FULL MEASURE W/ SHARYL ATTKISSON: Just a couple of months ago, we profiled Congressman Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the powerful House Oversight Committee which was poised to dig deep on wide-ranging investigations into government mischief, waste, fraud and abuse. A few weeks later, Chaffetz abruptly resigned from Congress. We asked the Oversight Man what changed his mind about being a lead watchdog with not only a GOP majority in Congress, but also a Republican in the White House. He told me it’s more a matter of what hasn’t changed. We started the interview with me asking how he...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan recently delivered a blistering speech in Istanbul, calling Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian Arabs “racist and discriminatory.” He also said that the Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the Gaza Strip “has no place in humanity.”Meanwhile, the Jewish population of Turkey – which has for decades been exposed to discrimination, as well as various forms of pressures and hostility – continues to decline. According to the 1927 census, there were 81,392 Jews in the country. Today, there are fewer than 15,000. And the situation is only worsening. Approximately 6,200 Jewish citizens are preparing to leave Turkey, according to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3-30-17 | http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/report-trumps-deputy-chief-of-staff-katie-walsh-leaving-white-hous
    President Trump's deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh is leaving her current position to work with political groups whose help the White House is seeking as it plows ahead with an ambitious agenda, two sources familiar with the move told the Washington Examiner. "She's got a track record of being able to raise money," a White House source said. "Hopefully she'll put that to good use in support of the president." But Walsh, a former Republican National Committee staffer who worked closely with chief of staff Reince Priebus in the West Wing, was not popular with some longtime Trump loyalists...

    Britain could be forced to write cheques to Brussels until 2030 despite leaving the EU, the German finance minister has warned. Wolfgang Schauble delivered his blustering warning as Theresa May flew into Berlin for talks with Angela Merkel and other world leaders. Mr Schauble said post-Brexit Britain would be bound by tax rules restricting it from granting incentives to keep investors in the country. He also insisted there will be no special deal to curb freedom of movement if the UK wants to remain part of the common market. Signalling that the bloc is determined to take a tough line...

    LIMA (Reuters) - Lori Berenson, a New Yorker once jailed in Peru for helping Marxist insurgents, is returning to the United States with her six-year-old son after finishing a 20-year sentence, her lawyer said Tuesday. Berenson, 46, was making preparations to leave Peru "in coming hours," said Anibal Apari, her attorney and the father of her son. He declined to be more specific. Apari and Berenson met in prison in 1997. He was also an inmate at the time. Berenson was on parole for the past 5 years after spending 15 years in prison. In 1996, Berenson was found guilty...

    Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show. The Comedy Central host informed his audience during Tuesday night’s taping he is stepping down from his role hosting the late-night series, a post he’s held since 1999.

    As head of the Senate Intelligence Committee since 2009, Sen. Dianne Feinstein has spent hundreds of hours in secret briefings and seen thousands of pictures from battlefields in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. She keeps two images with her. One shows a little girl wearing a gingham dress, white tights and black Mary Janes — but the girl's head is gone. Another is of a teenage boy, duct tape over his mouth, eyes bulging out, being forced to hold two severed heads. "To me, it's what we are up against," Feinstein said in an interview. "It is a testament to pure...
  • Greedy Politicians Get their Comeuppance as Taxpayers Escape

    Townhall.com ^ | May 4, 2014 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    If you’re a regular reader, you already know I’m a big supporter of tax competition and tax havens. Here’s the premise: Politicians almost always are focused on their next election and this encourages them to pursue policies that are designed to maximize votes and power within that short time horizon. Unfortunately, this often results in very short-sighted and misguided fiscal policies that burden the economy, such as class-warfare tax policy and counterproductive government spending. So we need some sort of countervailing force that will make such policies less attractive to the political class. We don’t have anything that inhibits wasteful...

    In light of this story, it should come as no surprise that two thirds of French Jews are considering leaving. Israel’s Immigration and Absorption Ministry presented its findings to the Knesset this week that more than two thirds of French Jews are considering leaving the country. The findings were presented in the context of an Israeli government effort to increase immigration from France; however they raise serious concerns that a prolonged exposure to increasingly virulent forms of anti-Semitism are taking their toll on the sense of security felt by Jewish communities in France and across Europe. ...

    BOSTON (AP) -- Rep. Barney Frank's decision to step down at the end of his term is the latest jolt to the bruised ego of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, which once counted Kennedys, House speakers and a president among its ranks. Instead, some of the state's best-known political figures are now Republicans, among them Sen. Scott Brown and presidential candidate Mitt Romney. "For a long time, Massachusetts Democrats have felt they played a special role in the national Democratic Party," said Tufts University political science professor Jeffrey Berry. "I think that has gone at this point. There is no one...

    Iranians who are able to flee their country are doing so, fearing an Israeli attack, Voice of Israel state radio reported Sunday. Iranian business people who hold dual citizenship with passports from European nations are allegedly leaving in droves. They apparently fear that Israel is preparing to attack Iran's nuclear facilities to eliminate President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's oft-repeated threat to annihilate the Jewish State. In a radio interview, a Palestinian Authority business owner with strong ties in Iran reported that many Iranians fear a “major attack” by Israel that would cause “terrible damage,” especially in Tehran. The source had returned to...

    In promising a U.S. military pullout from Afghanistan will begin in July, President Barack Obama is permitting his commanders to decide critical details, including the number of troops to depart first and whether any of those will be combat forces, administration and military officials said Sunday. Providing that leeway is important to Army Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan. It allows him to pace this year's phase of the withdrawal in a way that preserves combat power through the end of the traditional fighting season in October or November.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Katie Couric is leaving her anchor post at "CBS Evening News" less than five years after becoming the first woman to solely helm a network TV evening newscast. A network executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Couric has not officially announced her plans, reported the move to The Associated Press on Sunday night. The 54-year-old anchor is expected to launch a syndicated talk show in 2012 and several companies are vying for her services. Couric's move from NBC's "Today" show was big news in 2006, and she began in the anchor chair with a...
