    The fast-food worker strikes are expanding to more U.S. cities and going global. Workers in up to 150 cities across the country are planning to strike on May 15, according to labor organizers. The movement is also headed overseas, with plans for workers to join protests in 33 countries. On Wednesday, the workers announced the protests outside a McDonald's in New York City, and delivered a letter that called on the fast food giant to raise wages and respect workers' rights worldwide. However, security guards didn't allow the workers to bring the letter inside the restaurant. So, they posted the...
  • Meet the chief prosecutor in the GOP’s Benghazi show trial (Washington Post article)

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, the tea party Republican tapped to lead the new committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks, made a telling slip Wednesday morning in describing his mission. Asked by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough about the possibility that his panel’s work would continue into the 2016 election campaign, Gowdy replied that “if an administration is slow-walking document production, I can’t end a trial simply because the defense won’t cooperate.” A trial? And the Obama administration is the defense? So much for that “serious investigation” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) promised; his new chairman intends to play prosecutor, proving the administration’s guilt...

    Scandal: On the day after Benghazi, the brother of the White House staffer who wrote the Susan Rice prep email said the government believed it was not just a mob reaction to a video. So who told him that? When you're Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, and you've been tasked to prep U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on how to deflect blame from the Obama administration for the Benghazi massacre, it's good to have a brother who happens to run a TV network quite willing to push the White House spin....

    House Speaker John Boehner would not say Thursday if the House GOP’s campaign arm should stop including the Benghazi attacks in fundraising appeals. Asked three times whether the National Republican Congressional Committee should be fundraising based on what they call Democratic obstruction of the Benghazi investigation, Boehner answered only: “Our focus is on getting the answers to those families who lost their loved ones. Period.” An NRCC email sent Wednesday morning included a link to “become a Benghazi watchdog” – which led to a page where supporters can donate cash. A separate website called “BenghaziWatchdogs.com” still contains a link encouraging...

    Here’s an unsolicited tip for Rep. Trey Gowdy: A smoking gun explanation for the Obama Administration’s use of false talking points has already been found. And the culprit is not a White House adviser or State Department bureaucrat. It’s the intelligence community’s reliance on the media. It’s tucked inside the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on Benghazi, which reveals a key source of the bad intelligence that made it into Ambassador Susan Rice’s famous talking points: the media incorrectly reported that before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 there were protests outside the U.S. facilities in Benghazi when there...

YORBA LINDA, Calif. — Documents released Friday by the Nixon Presidential Library show members of President Richard Nixon's inner circle discussing the possibilities of global warming more than 30 years ago. Adviser Daniel Patrick Moynihan, notable as a Democrat in the administration, urged the administration to initiate a worldwide system of monitoring carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, decades before the issue of global warming came to the public's attention. There is widespread agreement that carbon dioxide content will rise 25 percent by 2000, Moynihan wrote in a...

This means the Keystone XL Pipeline is already obsolete. "Higher oil prices in Canada ... are a sign that oil-sands crude is finding its way to the U.S. even without the approval of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline," Journal reporters Nicole Friedman and Chester Dawson said. "The resurgence in Canadian oil prices and energy stocks is further confirmation that the transportation problems that have prevented both Canada and the U.S. from enjoying...

    NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 — The announcement of a select committee to investigate Benghazi has liberals panicked. The walls are closing in as the truth slowly comes out. Top Obama assistant Ben Rhodes was recently caught advising Democrats on how to blame Benghazi on an internet video rather than a policy failure. Covering President Obama’s hindquarters weeks before his reelection took precedence over the truth. With dogged prosecutor Congressman Trey Gowdy leading the select committee, Democrats are expected to get meaner, nastier and more defiant in an attempt to discredit the committee and save Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Cheney explains her suspicions. “I really wonder if this isn’t an effort on the Clintons’ part to get that story out of the way,” Cheney, announced on an interview on Fox News. “Would Vanity Fair publish anything about Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton didn’t want in Vanity Fair?” There may be a couple of holes in this theory. The first is that, while it does account for the Clinton’s motivations, it fails to...

But Mr. Ratigan experienced something far worse than a coffee spill. His health insurance premiums are skyrocketing thanks to the hilariously named Affordable Care Act. What happened? Well, for starters, Ratigan had catastrophic health insurance coverage. That means that he sees himself as pretty healthy and...

Perhaps high off the buzz and Palin endorsement that that ad generated, Ernst just released another TV spot that is beyond parody. The 30-second spot, titled "Shot," features Ernst at the shooting range, "unloading" on Obamacare. The narrator's lines sound like a Palin speech run through the shredder. As Ernst rides into the frame on a Harley, we hear, "Conservative Joni Ernst: Mom, Farm Girl, and a Lieutenant Colonel who carries more than just...

As other recent national polls have shown, including the April health care tracking survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, the recent surge in signups for the new health care exchanges has had little impact on public opinion about the Affordable Care Act. In fact, the share disapproving of the law (55%) is as high as it ever has been in the four-year history of the law. Just 41% approve of the 2010 health care law.

Right after getting out of the Rose Garden, where, according to the second debate and other accounts he definitively called the attack terrorism, Obama is asked point blank about not calling it terrorism. He blinks and does not push back. Understand that this interview is just...

    In a long-winded speech on Wednesday at Georgetown University, former president Bill Clinton criticized the “political press” who, he says, are so often blinded by a “storyline” that they ignore reality, especially when it comes to Obamacare. “One of the problems is, if a policymaker is a political leader and is covered primarily by the political press, there is a craving that borders on addictive to have a storyline,” said Clinton. “And then, once people settle on the storyline, there is a craving that borders on blindness, to shoehorn every fact, every development, everything that happens into the storyline, even...

    Metro officers deal with large crowds all the time, but nothing like this. The crowd included former military men and ex-cops, people with various motives, their fingers poised just above the triggers of powerful weapons. With so much firepower in so many hands, a small incident could have set off a bloodbath and left nearly two dozen officers dead. Assist. Sheriff Joe Lombardo:"We were outgunned, outmanned and there would not have been a good result from it." I-Team reporter George Knapp: "A lot of scenarios could have played out that would have left a lot of dead officers." Assist. Sheriff...

    Hillary Clinton is running for President. Oh, sure, she hasnÂ’t announced it yet. But all the signs are there: speeches to certain groups, third-party money-raising apparatus, little hints dropped by Bill Clinton on Twitter. Hillary can play coy, but no one in the Democrat Party believes for a second that she did not walk out of the offices of Secretary of State and right into a campaign meeting. But what about the other big female name in American politics? No, not Elizabeth Warren. She is going to run with Hillary for the VP job. WeÂ’re talking about Sarah Palin. Ever...
  • Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi [it was Hillary]

    The e-mail revelations and the Obama administration’s lies Here is the main point: The rioting at the American embassy in Cairo was not about the anti-Muslim video. As argued here repeatedly (see here and here), the Obama administration’s “Blame the Video” story was a fraudulent explanation for the September 11, 2012, rioting in Cairo every bit as much as it was a fraudulent explanation for the massacre in Benghazi several hours later. We’ll come back to that because, once you grasp this well-hidden fact, the Obama administration’s derelictions of duty in connection with Benghazi become much easier to see. But...

Tonight on his radio show, Mark Levin discussed a new Benghazi email that shows AP reporter Matt Lee emailing then State Dept. spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on September 13, 2012 for her comment on what they agreed was “bullshit” reporting on Fox News regarding the State Dept. having credible information 48 hours before the Benghazi attack.

    Did JournoList help take down Hillary? (Part 1) July 27, 2010By NachumBy now,  the name ‘JournoList’ is well known throughout the blogosphere.  The assumption is that the hundreds of JournoListas acted in a coordinated attack on Sarah Palin.   It is well known that there is admitted bias and now it is a matter of public record.  What about their actions during the primaries though?   We have the names of the ‘JournoLists’,  so it isn’t hard to look at the record.  Let’s take a walk down memory lane?  The first name that comes to mind is Ezra Klein.  He is the...

    Among the most revealing aspects of life during the Obama presidency is the panoply of responses to a black family in the White House. What made so many of us proud of our country on Jan. 20, 2009, has increasingly provoked expressions of hatred from the far right. That is troubling, but not nearly as troubling as the behavior of conservatives who excuse, embolden or simply pretend to ignore the bigots surrounding them. Last spring, after unruly Tea Party protesters on Capitol Hill were accused of spewing racial epithets at civil rights hero John Lewis, an African-American congressman from Georgia,...

    With her boss struggling, the Secretary of State may be this administration's brightest prospect. Remember Hillary Clinton? The most powerful woman in American politics has kept her head down for most of the first 18 months of her tenure as secretary of State. But she is also, at present, by far the most unscathed senior member of a badly battered administration. And the once-defeated Democratic candidate may have, at present, the most promising political prospects of just about everyone in the administration, specifically including her boss, Barack Obama. The president’s economic team is reeling, having failed both at bringing the...
