    Americans for Tax Reform ^ | July 28, 2015 | By Alexander Hendrie
    The IRS failed to search five of six possible sources of electronic media for Lois Lernerís emails, according to a documentation released by the House Oversight Committee on Monday. Over the course of investigations into the Lois Lerner targeting scandal, Commissioner John Koskinen repeatedly assured Congress that he would provide all of Lois Lernerís emails. But based on testimony from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), this did not occur. The agencyís ineptness -- or corruption -- resulted in 24,000 Lerner emails being lost when they were ďaccidentlyĒ destroyed. According to TIGTA official Timothy Camus, the IRS had...

And itís a recipe that seems to be working for one of the few DQs in the country still operating under a 66-year-old contract that allows them to dish up throwback treats alongside the standard corporate-approved items, a combination that turns Main Avenue and 8th Street into a hopping, slightly retro summer hangout.

Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence...

The survey offers a series of warning signs for the leading Democratic candidate. Most troubling, perhaps, for her prospects are questions about her compassion for average Americans, a quality that fueled President Barack Obama's two White House victories. Just 39 percent of all Americans have a favorable view of Clinton, compared to nearly half who say they have a negative opinion...

A technological revolution spurred the U.S. oil boom that resulted in the greatest increase in domestic oil production in a century, and while that has stuttered in the face of a major oil price slump and an OPEC campaign to maintain a grip on market share, the American response could be another technological revolution that demonstrates that the first one was merely an impressive embryonic experiment.

    Is this bolder than what Haley did or not as bold? Davis may not hold the same cultural currency as a symbol of southern pride that the flag does, but Haley had less to lose in making her move than Bevin does. She’s the term-limited governor of South Carolina; he’s the GOP nominee for governor in Kentucky. If there’s a broader southern backlash coming to all of the criticism of Confederate iconography this past week, he’ll pay for it more than she will. NEW: @MattBevin, in a statement to me, calls for removing the Jefferson Davis statue in the...

    In ancient Egypt, so many people worshiped Anubis, the jackal-headed god of death, that the catacombs next to his sacred temple once held nearly 8 million mummified puppies and grown dogs, a new study finds. The catacomb ceiling also contains the fossil of an ancient sea monster, a marine vertebrate that's more than 48 million years old, but it's unclear whether the Egyptians noticed the existence of the fossil when they built the tomb for the canine mummies, the researchers said. Many of the mummies have since disintegrated or been disrupted by grave robbers and industrialists, who likely used the...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on ďFox News SundayĒ the only way to stop gun-related violence, like the Wednesday massacre at Emmanuel African Methodist Church in Charleston S.C., was to repeal American citizensí Second Amendment rights. When Chris Wallace asked Rove how we can, ďstop the violence,Ē the long-time gun-rights advocate stated that we have made great strides as a nation in empathizing with the victims of these types of shootings, but the only way to guarantee they will stop is to ďremove guns from society.Ē WALLACE: How do we stop the violence? ROVE: I wish I had an easy...

    One day in the 1970s, George Lucas screened a rough cut of his new movie, Star Wars, for his influential Hollywood friends. And almost none of them liked it. The plot seemed incomprehensible, the made-up fantasy names absurd. Director Brian De Palma, who had just had a big hit with Carrie, made fun of everything about the film, including Princess Leia¬ís hairstyle: ¬ďHey, George, what were those Danish rolls doing in the princess¬ís ears?¬Ē Almost 40 years later, De Palma is mostly making low-budget movies, and the most-anticipated Ô¨Ālm of the year is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first...

    Oklahoma City, OK - A great time. Most of us got our picture taken with him, too at no extra charge. What a great deal! Steve and I attended the round table discussion. Mark Thomas of Canadian County asked him if he thought he could keep his principles while serving in office (my version of the question). Cruz said yes, he could. Steve Byas asked Cruz about TPA/TPP. Cruz spent a good deal of time on this answer. He said he voted for TPA because every President had had TPA until Harry Reid killed it. Cruz said all this does...

    Longtime Democratic strategist Bob Shrum said on MSNBC Friday that he ďcannot imagine the horror that couldíve unfoldedĒ if churchgoers were armed during the recent massacre in Charleston, South Carolina. Nine people were slaughtered on Wednesday night after suspected gunman Dylann Roof allegedly opened fire in the historically black church. Only three people survived, including a grandmother who played dead and laid on top of her granddaughter to protect her. Roof reportedly had time to reload his gun several times. ďI cannot imagine the horror that couldíve occurred if people were sitting around with concealed weapons, this thing started and...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is moving forward with votes on President Obamaís trade agenda next week, even though pro-trade Democrats have yet to promise their support. McConnell on Thursday filed motions to advance fast-track authority and a separate package of trade preferences for African nations combined with an extension of Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), a program that helps workers displaced by foreign competition. The Senate will vote to end debate on fast-track Tuesday and then will vote on final passage of the measure later that day or Wednesday. Immediately afterward, the Senate will vote to end debate on...

    Theyíre holy terrors. Bands of beggars dressed like Buddhist monks have invaded the High Line and other city parks, demanding upwards of $40 from tourists ó and officials are fed up. One High Line visitor handed over $5 last week, but it wasnít good enough. ďHe tried to get $20,Ē she told The Post. Another monkís zen demeanor dissolved after he got just a buck in exchange for the cheap plastic bracelet he proffered. ďFive dollar, five dollar,Ē he demanded. He would not explain what the money was used for. The behavior of the phony ≠Himalayan holy men has been...
