    Remember when President Obama touted the Affordable Care Act by claiming if you "liked your plan you could keep it"? He earnedPolitifact's 2013 "Lie of the Year" for that whopper. Amazingly, several other Democrats made the same false promise. Knowing what we know now, wouldn't you want to expose any politician who stood behind that misleading statement? Well, if someone uttered those words in the state of New York, you may now be forced to let it slide. A new law in the Empire State, which some are calling the ' shut up rule,' could allow such lofty claims...

    A Mississippi judge on Friday dismissed Tea Party-backed Senate candidate Chris McDaniel's lawsuit, in which McDaniel has been attempting to overturn his narrow defeat in the Republican primary against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran — on the grounds that McDaniel missed the deadline to even file his challenge.Judge Hollis McGehee agreed with the Cochran campaign's contention that under a 1959 state Supreme Court ruling, there is a 20-day deadline to file an election challenge. By contrast, McDaniel filed his challenge 41 days after after the June 24 Republican primary runoff, which Cochran won by about 7,000 votes.McDaniel's lawyer told the Jackson...

    [Note: this  is a work in progress. I'm basically seeking comment as I develop a November predictive model.

    The shocking and disturbing videotaped execution of American journalist James Foley had, besides the most gruesome and obvious, another jarring element: the composed British voice of his murderer, repeating fanatical Islamist propaganda and making terroristic threats in impeccable English. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, an up-and-coming rapper who abandoned making music in London to make war in Syria in 2012, is far from the first UK national to embrace the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Great Britain’s Foreign Office estimates that at least 400 British citizens have gone to join the carnage in Syria. One member of Parliament thinks Merry...

    (Reuters) - The U.S. government sued a small Minneapolis suburb on Wednesday, accusing it of religious discrimination after local leaders denied a Muslim group the right to open a center in the municipality. The Justice Department filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis against St. Anthony Village, where council members voted 4-1 in 2012 to deny a request by the Abu Huraira Islamic Center to create a place of worship in the basement of the St. Anthony Business Center. "Religious freedom is one of our most cherished rights, and there are few aspects of that right more central...

    While we might like to think that voters research the issues, review the candidates, and then vote for the candidate that best reflects their views; the reality, based on political science research, is much different. According to George Washington University Professor Danny Hayes' research paper "When Gender and Party Collide: Stereotyping in Candidate Trait Attribution," "Stereotypes are relevant in politics because citizens are willing to devote only limited time to thinking about political matters. As a result, political judgments -- whether about issues, events or candidates -- are often the result of a few salient cues. Stereotyping is the assignment...

    With the news of Governor Perry’s indictment going viral, the Public Integrity Unit (PIU) of the Travis County District Attorney’s office is once again shaking up Texas politics, though more indirectly than it has in the past. The agency has been the bane of politicians for 30 years, and routinely comes under fire from Republicans for its supposed partisanship. How did this branch of municipal law enforcement in a deep sea-blue Democratic county come to carry such influence in a ruby-red state? Is it time, as many conservative say, to rein in the rogue outfit and place its duties somewhere...

    Less than a week after Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) was indicted by a grand jury on two felony counts, he may be in an even stronger political position than he was before the charges hit. Several prominent Republicans have spoken out on Perry's behalf. Conservative activists in Iowa and New Hampshire aren't shying away. Even a well-known Democratic strategist has suggested the case against him may be flimsy. For a politician who is openly weighing another run for president, it's a welcome turn of events: While politicians embroiled in legal fights of this magnitude typically find few public allies,...

The two studies found that in 2013: •Nearly 78 percent of office-based physicians acknowledged they had implemented some form of EHR system. •About half of all physicians had an EHR system with advanced functionalities, nearly double the rate of four years before. •About 59 percent of hospitals had an EHR system with advanced functionalities, nearly quadruple the rate of two years before.

He demanded sworn declarations specifying what the agency had done to recover the thousands of emails missing. Time’s up. The IRS filed its “declarations” yesterday.

    On Monday, Iraq's president asked Ibadi to form a new government, despite opposition from Maliki, who has said he wants a third term as prime minister. "The country is now in your hands," Massoum told deputy parliamentary speaker Ibadi, in a televised ceremony. "I hope you will be successful in forming a broader-based government." Massoum's request came despite a legal ruling by Iraq's highest court earlier on Monday declaring that Maliki's Shiite-led State of Law political bloc was the largest grouping in parliament.

    [Summary: Decline in American public schools is best explained by the far-left politics of our Education Establishment.

If you had enough power, you moved on to Communism, which was more coercive. One intellectual summed up the matter this way. Socialists persuade you with speeches. Communists persuade you with guns. In the days after the Russian Revolution, American leftists expended billions of hours trying to describe the perfect society. Fundamentally, all the debates turned on how much power the central...

If you were against the war, you were a Democrat and for the war, a Republican. It was an easy line to see and pretty much lasted through Nixon into the Carter years. During Carter, we were reminded that the economy didn't have to remain bullet proof just because we were Americans. This is where I was intrigued by the fledgling libertarians that had the "pure" economic theory that was...

  • Republicans Remain Slightly Favored To Take Control Of The Senate

    If Americans elected an entirely new set of senators every two years — as they elect members of the House of Representatives — this November’s Senate contest would look like a stalemate. President Obama remains unpopular; his approval ratings have ticked down a point or two over the past few months. But the Republican Party remains a poor alternative in the eyes of many voters, which means it may not be able to exploit Obama’s unpopularity as much as it otherwise might. Generic Congressional ballot polls — probably the best indicator of the public’s overall mood toward the parties —...

  • U.S. Army in Europe to Get German Chief of Staff

    BERLIN—A German will for the first time become chief of staff of the U.S. Army in Europe, a sign of further cooperation between the two nations despite a chill caused by allegations of U.S. spying here. Brig. Gen. Markus Laubenthal from Germany's Bundeswehr will report to Lt. Gen. Donald Campbell, the U.S. commander for U.S. Army Europe, known as USAREUR, with headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany. "This is a bold and major step forward in USAREUR's commitment to operating in a multinational environment with our German allies," Gen. Campbell said. The appointment of a German to the position has been several...
  • Former Redskin Releases Epic Statement Attacking Hillary For Calling Team's Name 'Insensitive'

    A former Washington Redskins player is fuming mad because Hillary Clinton had the audacity to call the football team's controversial name "insensitive." Clint Didier, a former tight end for the team for seven years who is now running for Congress as a Republican in Washington State, released a six-paragraph statement Wednesday evening demanding Clinton's apology. In it, Didier also criticized remarks made by Clinton unrelated to the football team and closed with a reference to alfalfa. "I'm just flabbergasted that Hillary Clinton now thinks she's the expert on what's insensitive. But if she has suddenly become the Miss Manners of...
  • Bipartisanship is Alive and Well, but not in the Obama White House

    Bipartisanship is dead. That's the conventional wisdom, and there's a lot of evidence to support it. But there's evidence to the contrary as well. On two important issues, veterans' health and job training, congressional Republicans and Democrats have, with little notice, reached constructive bipartisan agreements. These are both issues on which everyone agrees government should be involved. The country certainly owes something to veterans. And no one's proposing to eliminate job training programs altogether. But government is also not doing a good job on either. The Veterans Affairs Department scandals have revealed a culture of lying and incompetence that comes...
  • Jesus, Today’s Church, and ‘Inequality’: What the Lord Really Said (and didn’t say)

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 07/28/2014 | Jack Kerwick
    That Jesus commanded His disciples—of which I am one—to love “the poor” is beyond dispute. Equally beyond dispute, however, is that, regardless of what growing legions of left-leaning clerics would have us believe, Jesus never—never ever—addressed the issue of “inequality.” The head of my church and the most visible religious leader on the world stage today, Pope Francis, is as guilty a culprit as is anyone on this score. The Pope made headlines on more than a few occasions since his tenure began when His Holiness condemned “inequality” generally, and the traditional American economic system in particular, with a bluntness...

    Way back, even before the beginning of Barry's first term, we opined that he belonged in GQ magazine, not the White House. We were reminded of this upon reading the delightful Bud Norman's essay "The end of Language" in which he despairs of the loss of common words like "fop." The disappearance of the word “fop” from the language seems to have coincided with the disappearance of society’s sneering contempt for men who take excessive pride in their physical appearance that it once conveyed, for instance, and as a result American society is inundated with preening pretty boys and empty...
