    President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago ó once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map...

    The Internal Revenue Service is used to being universally disliked every April 15. But this year, the widespread denunciations have started early, and for good reason. In November, the agency issued proposed new rules that are supposed to keep social welfare organizations from abusing their legal privileges by engaging in excessive electioneering. The effort came in response to complaints from Democrats about a 2012 surge in political spending by such tax-exempt groups, by the conservative Koch brothers and others to influence elections. The IRS wants to curb such efforts, and it doesn't display much concern about the likely effect on...

Texas legislators and the U.S. Department of Justice are holding forums to educate parents and government officials on the issue. Investigators with the Social Security Administration say identity theft is prevalent in Texas at least in part because the state has millions of illegal immigrants. Some look to obtain Social Security numbers belonging to children because they are a clean slate without a bad credit history. Experts say thieves...

    In the late 1970s, county employees in Galveston, Tex., made an unusual and risky decision that they thought would help secure their financial future. They took advantage of a federal provision available at the time and opted out of Social Security. Their decision was born out of a fear that the federal entitlement program, designed to keep elderly and disabled Americans out of poverty, might not be around in the future. After careful study, the county employees chose an alternative that allowed them to open personal savings accounts. Today, Galveston has become a poster child for critics of the Social...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry has taken a lot of heat for his critical comments toward Social Security. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says that Social Security shouldnít just be jettisoned but that the Texas governor is right to call for reform. "Well there's no need to frighten or throw under the bus our esteemed elders who have paid all of their working lives into the Social Security system. And the question should be asked of the politicians, where the heck is their money?" Palin said on Fox News. "What Rick Perry was trying to say I believe is that...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry continued his attack on Social Security over the weekend, calling it a "Ponzi scheme" and a "monstrous lie" to younger Americans who should not expect to get back their contributions upon retirement. "It is a Ponzi scheme for these young people. The idea that they're working and paying into Social Security today, that the current program is going to be there for them, is a lie," Perry said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "It is a monstrous lie on this generation, and we can't do that to them," Perry told a crowd a The Vine...

    In An Unsustainable System, A Warning of CollapseBob ChapmanAugust 24, 2011 We do not believe that Americans, particularly elderly Americans, understand what the elitists are up to in regard to Social Security and Medicare. The Council on Foreign Relations and the Peterson Foundation has for years been working on plans to terminate Social Security and Medicare. Cuts in these paid for programs were impossible to get through Congress. Thus, the ruse was born of getting around Congress. A flash issue was raised regarding a short-term debt extension that could have been passed in 15 minutes that demanded budget cuts for...

    Under New Proposed Inflation Measure Seniors Would Lose $720 per Year in Social Security PaymentsEconomic Policy JournalRobert WenzelJuly 18, 2011 As I have pointed out before, as part of the current deficit-reduction talks, White House officials and Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle are advocating changes to the way inflation is calculated by using a method to measure inflation known as the "chained consumer price index." This method would likely result in a slower inflation adjustment rate payment on social security. So if you think the current CPI doesn't reflect price inflation accurately, just wait until the SS...

    The Real Reason Hitting The Debt Limit May Mean Social Security Checks Stop July 14th, 2011By Aaron Krowne Founder, ML-Implode.com Itís crunch time, and now weíre hearing as part of the hyper-political debt ceiling debate that that Social Security checks may stop. But interestingly, weíre not just hearing that from Congressional Republicans: Obama has raised that spectre as well. Many left-leaning critics are shocked, believing Social Security to beÖ wellÖ secure, and are incensed that Obama would be willing to slaughter this sacred cow. After all, if in the case of default, the government can prioritize payments to various areas,...

    Well, either Obama and Geithner are lying to us now, or they and all defenders of the Social Security status quo have been lying to us for decades. It must be one or the other. Hereís why: Social Security has a trust fund, and that trust fund is supposed to have $2.6 trillion in it, according to the Social Security trustees. If there are real assets in the trust fund, then Social Security can mail the checks, regardless of what Congress does about the debt limit. President Obamaís budget director, Jack Lew, explained all this last February in USA Today:...

    Reid: No Social Security checks without debt dealAP Ė 10 minutes ago WASHINGTON (AP) ó Echoing President Barack Obama's warning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Social Security payments would stop if there is no deal to raise the government's borrowing limit by Aug. 2. Speaking on the Senate floor, the Nevada Democrat said flatly that payments for veterans benefits and the military, as well as Social Security, would cease if the government defaults on its obligations. His statement goes beyond Obama, who said earlier this week that he could not guarantee Social Security checks will be issued on Aug....
