  • California Can't Regulate Its Way to Success, Report Shows

    The Independent Institute in cooperation with Canada’s Fraser Institute has issued a new 2017 Economic Freedom of North America report and California’s ranking shows what happens when politicians who have never held a real job or created real jobs in the private sector decide they can regulate an economy into success. California ranks 49th out of all 50 states, finishing just ahead of that slave to Big Government, New York. For some reason the wizards in Sacramento think driving out businesses and replacing them with illegal aliens attracted by “sanctuary policies” is going to pay off big the for state....

    BOMBSHELL! Newly Released Emails Reveal Obama Admin’s Reaction to Benghazi April 29, 2014 By Greg Campbell Emails obtained by Judicial Watch have revealed that the top priority after the Benghazi terrorist attack was not national security nor was it ensuring a proper investigation into who orchestrated an attack on our consulate that left four Americans dead. No, the priority of top advisors in the earliest days after the Benghazi attack was ensuring that President Obama “looked good” prior the 2012 election. As part of a Freedom of Information Lawsuit, the Obama Administration released nearly 100 pages of documents to Judicial...

    “I’m stunned that they couldn’t even get him on using the weapon,” Brad Steinle. Brad Steinle told the Chronicle that he can’t believe the “culmination of errors” that led to Kate’s death, including a lack of understanding about weapons, given the defense team’s argument to the jury that the gun went off accidentally. “I own a handgun,” Brad Steinle said. “I know that guns don’t just go off. But you have a jury full of people, the vast majority of which probably haven’t shot a gun before and don’t know the intricacies of how a gun works.”

    Four years after Gov. Jerry Brown launched his signature program to boost California jobs by awarding tax credits to the businesses that create them, businesses have left two-thirds of those available credits unclaimed — a sign that most expected jobs have yet to materialize. Nor can the state say for sure how many of the administration’s 83,414 projected jobs over five years have actually been created. State offices responsible for awarding and monitoring the California Competes tax credits say they aren’t keeping count. So far, the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz) has awarded $622.8 million to 865...

    VIENNA -- A new review by the United Nations agency monitoring Iran's compliance with a treaty that restricts its nuclear activities has not identified any violations by Tehran. The quarterly report issued on Monday by the International Atomic Energy Agency is significant considering President Donald Trump's criticism of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. "Iran is now subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime, and the IAEA has so far had access to all the locations it needed to visit in the country," Amano said, pushing back on the criticism from Mr. Trump and Republican lawmakers. On Friday, Amano...

Bill Nye on his climate change education efforts: “I am a failure” “The Science Guy” looks back on his 1990s TV show, and why climate change education has not reflected policy change Between hosting “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and serving as CEO of The Planetary Society, Bill Nye’s career as a science educator means he is also, inherently, an activist when...

    President Barack Obama's national security adviser said Friday that her full-throated praise of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was appropriate given the former Taliban prisoner's willingness to go to war for his country -- despite questions about whether or not he deserted his Army colleagues. Susan Rice, who on Sunday said Bergdahl served the United States with "honor and distinction," told CNN in an interview that she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country. "I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this," Rice said. "But...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday blasted President Trump's decision not to re-certify Iran's compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, accusing Mr. Trump of jumpstarting an "international crisis." "President Trump's decision today is dangerous," Kerry said in a lengthy statement he posted to Twitter. "He's creating an international crisis. It endangers America's national security interests and those of our closest allies. "The president has polluted the negotiating waters and made it easier for legitimate concerns to be distinguished from back-door efforts to kill the deal," Kerry added. "What we've seen today lacks common sense and strategic thinking to...

    WASHINGTON – The Obama Foundation announced on Friday a search for a “diversity consultant” to enforce minority contracting goals for the future Obama Presidential Center and to police pledges that jobs will flow to South and West Side residents. In a statement the foundation said the “diversity consultant” should “demonstrate a verifiable record of implementing transparent and significant diversity and inclusion programs” working with companies owned by minorities, women, veterans, the disabled and “individuals who identify as LGBTQ.” The “diversity consultant” should have “a history of working with unions and engaging with underemployed populations including ex-offenders and youth to increase...

    President Donald Trump won the November 8, 2016 election in an electoral landslide. President Trump captured several states that have not voted Republican in decades. Riding on his coattails the Republican Party also won back the House of Representatives and won a majority in the US Senate. In December 2016 Speaker Paul Ryan spoke about how he would help the new president push through his agenda. The new Republican president wanted to pass tax cuts, repeal Obamacare and build a border wall in his first 100 days. But no matter how hard President Trump and his team worked, the Republican...

  • Sticker Shock: Iowa's only ObamaCare insurer seeks 57 percent rate increase

    FOX News ^ | August 17, 2017 | By Barnini Chakraborty
    In one of the biggest 2018 premium hikes sought to date, Iowa’s only ObamaCare insurer is looking for a 57 percent rate increase – that’s 13 percent more than they asked for just two months earlier. It’s a troubling trend that’s been spreading across the country as jittery insurers stay stuck in a holding pattern waiting on Congress and the Trump administration to decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act. President Trump has at different times encouraged lawmakers to let ObamaCare implode, pushed his party to repeal and replace the bill, admonished his own party for failing to do...

IMHO, this cute little gig, set-up and planned by Democrat, McAuliffe and his buddy Mayor and assistant Mayor in Charlottesville did not go off as planned, because the police were setup to fail with the orders issued by the Governor and his two Mayors. Results, three people murdered, multiple people injured while extreme Right wing & Left wing nutcases tried to kill each other, uncontrolled...

    Inflation in Venezuela's crisis-hit economy quickened to 248.6 percent in the first seven months of the year, the opposition-led congress said on Wednesday in the absence of official data. Various factors underlay the seven-month price rise, including a lack of U.S. dollars in the country, a sharp weakening of the bolivar currency, and political uncertainty, opposition lawmaker Angel Alvarado said. The government says it is victim of an "economic war" led by opposition-linked businessmen.

    A good one-sentence summary of the current American political divide is this: Republicans think that Democrats are wrong, but Democrats think that Republicans are evil. I mean, if you believe that all human problems -- poverty, racism, inadequate healthcare, income inequality, whatever -- can be solved, and that the world can be perfected, by another government program and some more spending and coercion, then who could be so evil as to stand in the way? And, if our opponents are evil, shouldn't we be angry? Really angry? We just need someone to articulate and channel that anger to rev up...

    SKY News ^ | August 2, 2017 | By Paul Kelso
    One in four terminally ill people who need expert end-of-life care are not receiving it because of funding pressures, the hospice movement has told Sky News. Hospice UK said as many as 118,000 people in the UK with terminal or life-limiting conditions are not able to access palliative care from its members. On average, hospices most of which are charities, receive just one-third of their funding from the NHS and rely on donations, shops, bequests and investments for the rest. Hospice UK said two-thirds of hospices had their NHS funding cut or frozen last year. It argues that with more...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 31, 2017 | by Robert King
    Idaho's insurance regulator blasted the Trump administration's unwillingness to pay Obamacare insurers as the reason premiums couldrise by up to 38 percent next year. The state's Department of Insurance posted proposed rates for 2018 Monday. The state's six Obamacare insurers are calling for an average 38 percent rate hike, including a 50 percent increase for the silver plan, which is the most popular of Obamcare's three plan options. Idaho said the proposed increase for silver plans was because of "the potential refusal by the federal government to fund the cost share reduction mechanism." Insurers are required under law to lower...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was moved to near tears while speaking about Sen. John McCain early Friday morning after the Republican "skinny repeal" of Obamacare failed on the Senate floor. Schumer choked up as he turned his attention to McCain, who recently received a diagnosis of brain cancer. "And let's turn the page in another way," Schumer said. "All of us were so inspired by the speech and the life of the senator from Arizona. And he asked us to go back to regular order, to bring back the Senate that some of us who've been here a while...
