    “Regardless of whatever else happens, I know I did the best I could under the circumstances and am not sorry for anything I did,” former IRS official Lois Lerner told POLITICO in an exclusive interview released today. In the piece, Lerner portrays herself as being unfairly attacked by the very groups she spent years inappropriately targeting. Lerner, for her part, assumes she is at the center of the storm because “I was the person who announced it. I assume the other part of it is because I declined to talk, and once I declined to talk, they could say anything they...

Breitbart Texas subsequently reached out to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices around the country, in an attempt to learn more about release policies. Each ICE representative that Breitbart Texas came in contact with was familiar with the CIS report, but would not comment on it. They additionally refused to answer general questions regarding detention and release...

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said the shutdown was a striking reminder that national parks are a powerful economic engine for local economies across the country. The report released Monday said five states, including California and Arizona, lost more than $20 million during the 16-day shutdown.

    Mitt Romney presents one enormous problem for Barack Obama's campaign: No divorce records. That's why the media are so hot to get their hands on Romney's tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to "pick through, distort and lie about" -- as the Republican candidate says. Obama's usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents. Democrats aren't going to find any personal dirt on the clean-cut Mormon, so they need complicated tax filings going back decades in order to create the illusion of scandal...

Despite the fact that unions already win more than 60% of all secret-ballot elections and the median time frame between a union petition for and election and the election itself is 38 days, the proposed rule change would like shorten that time drastically, creating an ambush union campaign on targeted employers and employees. When the NLRBs union appointees issued the notice, it was met with a tremendous outcry from Americas employers, as well as...

    A primary task for the new Republican House majority is to undo as many of the pernicious effects of ObamaCare that it can. One of these effects is the spectacle of employers going hat-in-hand to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for waivers from some of the law's more onerous provisions. In September, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius began granting waivers to companies that provided workers "mini-med" coveragelow-cost plans with low annual limits on what the insurance will pay out. This followed announcements by some employers that they would have to drop these plans because they did not meet...

    Welcome to the Thugocracy It\'s not like the Founding Fathers did not envision this. They did. Posted byE Pluribus Unum(Profile) Tuesday, April 20th at 12:25AM EDT A republic, if you can keep it was said to be uttered by Benjamin Franklin once the Constitution was framed. As they met in 1787, Americans involved in shaping the new government were very familiar with tyranny, and phrases like consent of the governed were on their lips and on their minds. Madison and Adams and others crafted the Constitution with great care, in its effort to safe-guard America from having...

    When thousands of peaceful, Tea Party protestors came to Harry Reids hometown of Searchlight, Nev. last Saturday, you would have thought that the favorite son of this hardscrabble, mining town would garner tons of local support. Not so. Members of IBEW Local 357 were called to action to agitate the crowd and, as weve previously shown, to hurl eggs at the busses carrying them.

    Dear Sean, WHY? Even though I have great respect for your artistic talent, I was appalled by a recent television interview where you vigorously showed support for the regime of Hugo Chavez. Therefore, Ive decided to set the record straight for you regarding the Chavez regime, supporting my case based not only on my political ideologies, but on proven facts you choose to ignore. Otherwise, I believe your position would be different. Being born in Cuba, a country where freedom of speech is non-existent, its startling to observe how Venezuela, where I was happily raised, is fast becoming Cubas mirror...

    The notion that the pain of Obamacare would not really be felt for a few years has always been silly. It won't be fully felt, but he economy is dynamic. Corporations have to plan today for the conditions of tomorrow. More to the point, public corporations with disclosure obligations under the securities laws have to disclose today when developments change their outlook for tomorrow. Hence, AT&T's announcement that Obamacare will force it to take a $1 billion dollar charge the most alarming (but entirely predictable) bad news in a parade that, the Wall Street Journal's editors note, "includes Deere...

    Ace of Spades blog citing Powerline ^ | March 27, 2010 | Gabriel Malor
    This past week several big companies, including Caterpillar, Verizon, and AT&T, announced that ObamaCare would cost them millions of dollars this year. To pay for it they variously suggested layoffs and benefits reductions. Analysts suggest that the total first-quarter hit to S&P 500 firms will be $4.5 billion. Well, Democrats can't stand to have their precious economy-destroying healthcare program criticized in its very first week, so they've announced an "investigation" into the claims. Late yesterday, the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation sent letters to the CEOs of AT&T, Caterpillar, Deere & Co, and Verizon asking them to appear for...

    It would appear that what is needed most in the Obama White House is adult supervision. In the wake of the latest terror incident was the Administration's top priority finding the weakness in our security systems that allowed a Muslim terrorist to come so close to destroying an American airplane full of Christmas travelers? Well, no, according to an unnamed staffer who is quoted at American Spectator: "The idea was that we'd show that the Bush Administration had had far worse missteps than we ever could," says a staffer in the counsel's office. "We were told that classified material involving...
