  • ‘This was all planned’: Former IG says Hillary, State Dept. are lying

    The State Department is lying when it says it didn’t know until it was too late that Hillary Clinton was improperly using personal e-mails and a private server to conduct official business — because it never set up an agency e-mail address for her in the first place, the department’s former top watchdog says. “This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008.

    Each of the Democratic presidential candidates has come out in favor of some version of a plan to make college "free." This staggeringly bad idea would cost a half-trillion dollars per year. Things that seem to "cost nothing" can often wind up being worth nothing. College is no different. Students need to have some "skin in the game." They will make more considered choices-about where they go to school, how much debt they take on, how hard they party, and how diligent they are in their studies-if they're paying something. That's not to say that growing student debt isn't a...

    However, experts say earthquakes in Oklahoma will likely increase in magnitude over time. Now, research said it's only a matter of time before we get a big one that will change life for those of us living here. ... In 2011, a 5.6 magnitude earthquake shook the state, becoming the largest quake in recent Oklahoma history. Now, research shows a bigger, stronger one could hit soon. ... "It's unclear exactly how high we might go, and the predictions are upper 5-6 range for most things that I've seen," Todd Halihan, a researcher from OSU, says. Halihan studies these quakes; his...

    Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahus senior advisers have described the relationship between the Obama Administration and the Israeli government as irreparable, the UKs Jewish Chronicle reported on Thursday. Their dire evaluation comes on the heels of weeks of hostility from the White House and State Department towards Netanyahu, a situation which has intensified since Netanyahus Likud party won the largest amount of Knesset seats in Israels general election last week. Less than 24 hours after polls closed in Israel, and Likuds win became evident, the administration was already openly talking about a reevaluation of the relationship with Israel. The stance was...

    The world will run out of fresh water long before it runs out of oil, with the potential for major deficits by 2030, the chairman of bottled water giant Nestle said. "We have a major water management crisis," Peter Brabeck-Letmathe told CNBC on the sidelines of the Credit Suisse Asian Investment Conference on Tuesday. "We are destroying 20 percent more water for human consumption than there is available." Around 1.2 billion people, or almost one-fifth of the world's population, live in areas of physical scarcity, and 500 million people are approaching this situation, according to data from the United Nations....

    The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats dont think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama health care lies and all to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear lately

    Lets just tick through whats going on on the border. Whether its accidental or by DACA design, the US-Mexico border is being overrun with illegal aliens from Central America. Mexico was once known for its tough handling of its southern border with Belize and Guatemala. Not anymore. At least 52,000 illegal aliens have managed to cross Mexico and reach the US border in the past few months. Many of them are kids. Some of them are hardcore criminals. With Hizballah known to be active in South America and Mexico, who knows who else may be using this moment to slip...

    Five years ago, Jim Simpson informed America of the grand conspiratorial sabotage presenting Barack Obama for the United States Presidency. That is, he presented much more than we already knew, to those who were already awake, aware, alarmed, and looking for more. And we have all continued to tell those who have not been willfully, unrepentantly, and fatally ignorant. This article also introduced to many the very old, Marxist and fascist (some would say Illuminist and Jacobin) strategy of collapsing a nations economy through government obligations and debt, recently reprised as the Cloward-Piven strategy. Whether reviewing or reading for the...

    The Gang of Eights immigration bill could make illegal immigrants eligible for state and local welfare benefits almost immediately after it is passed, according to Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), one of the proposals leading critics. Further, he contends, some particular categories of amnestied immigrants and their relatives would be eligible for federal benefits long before the 13-year waiting period usually cited by the bills advocates, such as Senator Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.), who challenged Sessionss argument in a press release on Tuesday. These are just a couple of reasons why Sessions and others are calling on the Gang of...

    The White House announced Tuesday that it is canceling tours of the presidents home for the foreseeable future as the sequester spending cuts begin to bite and the administration makes good on its warnings of painful decisions. Announcement of the decision made in an email from the White House Visitors Office came hours after The Washington Times reported on another administration email that seemed to show at least one agency has been instructed to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.

    I had high hopes for President Obamas speech on the economy. But instead of going to Ohio on Thursday with a compelling plan for the future, the president gave Americans a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy. The falsehood is that he has been serious about cutting government spending. The fallacy is that this election will be some sort of referendum that will break the logjam in Washington. Fallacy first. Both parties have laid out their policies on the table for all to see, Obama said. Whats holding us back is a stalemate in Washington between two fundamentally different views of...

    On his show last night, Mark Levin said that President Barack Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of the war on the private sector. Levin discussed the lack of U.S. jobs and pointed to a number of disappointing economic statistics. I want you to look around you. I want you to think about family members and friends and co-workers. Many of you look at your own situation. Look at the situation of your children. Think how prices are rising, costs are rising. But, for most people income is flat if not, losing ground. There are 23 million unemployed or underemployed today."...

    SAN FRANCISCO, June 6 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama said Democrats and Republicans used to think "about the good of the country and the future" but "that's changed on the other side." Speaking Wednesday to an audience at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Obama said he and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney offer voters "two fundamentally contrasting visions" for America -- and he said Romney and congressional Republicans represent a departure from the GOP of 2008, when he defeated Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the general election. "The character of the party and the Republicans in Congress had...

    Writing in todays Washington Post, former Obama economist Larry Summers put forth the strange hypothesis that more red ink would improve the federal governments long-run fiscal position. This sounds like an excuse for more Keynesian spending as part of another so-called stimulus plan, but Summers claims to have a much more modest goal of prudent financial management.And if we assume theres no hidden agenda, what hes proposing isnt unreasonable.But before floating his idea, Summers starts with some skepticism about more easy-money policy from the Fed. Many in the United States and Europe are arguing for further quantitative easing to bring...

    President Barack Obama said: "Since I've been president, federal spending has risen at the lowest pace in nearly 60 years." And then he said, "Think about that." I went to the White House website to see what sort of historical light the data published by Obama's Office of Management and Budget would shine on his fiscal record. The data says this: Since fiscal 1930, the earliest year for which the government has made official calculation, only two presidents have spent 24 percent or more of GDP for three or more straight fiscal years that started while they were president. They...

    Thats the headline on yesterday's AP story by Charles Babington. The headline appeared on the main Yahoo page, which is far more heavily trafficked than any newspaper, and was picked up, based on a Google News search, by several hundred newspapers.*snip* The idea was to attribute plausibility to what is in fact a laughable suggestion. In order to effect the economy, Republicans would have to 1) enact policies that would do one or the other, or 2) block the Democrats from enacting policies that would do one or the other. The Republicans havent enacted anything since the Democrats took control...

  • AMERICAS DEBT BOMB: WORSE THAN EUROPES

    It has been said many times in recent months that we arent Greece. Now it will start to be said that we arent Spain. Both propositions are certainly true. (For one thing, Spain elected its socialist government in 2004, thus getting a head start on us.) But if we compare Americas debt crisis to Europes as a whole, how do we stack up? The Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee did the math and produced this graphic, which shows that the U.S. is now deeper in debt than the entire Eurozone, plus the United Kingdom. UPDATE: Mark Steyn thinks I...
