    Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during President Obama's tenure, went on the Kelly File last night to talk about the possible manipulation of ISIS intelligence. He said the investigation should "start at the top. Where intelligence starts and stops is at the White House."

    Speaking from the White House Monday after more than a week of being overseas, Press Secretary Josh Earnest tried to reassure reporters that President Obama is taking the threat from ISIS seriously and is gathering as much intelligence on the terror army as he possibly can. "The intelligence reports that he's received about ISIL and the impact they've had on Syria and Iraq in particular, have been troubling and that is part of what has prompted the kind of aggressive and sustained commitment to degrading and ultimately destroying that organization that you've seen put forward by the president," Earnest said....

    While millions of Americans prepare to stuff themselves with Turkey and pie, the Obama administration quietly released its plans for 2,224 federal rules Friday - a preview of just how many more regulations the president is attempting to issue before he leaves office. President Barack Obama's Unified Agenda for Fall 2015 is his administration's regulatory road map and lays out thousands of regulations being finalized in the coming months. Obama has developed a habit of releasing the agenda late on Friday before a major holiday.

    Hillary Clinton has glaring weaknesses as a candidate. The historical odds are against her goal: getting a third term in the White House for one party.

Her mishandling of official e-mails as secretary of state, along with her clumsy lies about it, have kept generating unflattering coverage. Her favorability ratings have been falling for four years straight. A small majority of Americans have an unfavorable impression of her in the latest poll average at RealClearPolitics.

The White House intends to use the hefty fines as leverage in the upcoming 2016 enrollment period, which starts in November: Administration officials are looking for a balance. ďWe need to be make sure that...

That's because 60 votes are necessary to overcome a filibuster, and because the parliamentarian has indicated she believes repeal would have to come from a bill, which can be filibustered. Some Obamacare opponents have called for the law to repealed through so-called reconciliation, a special budgetary procedure that requires only a simple majority of senators to pass.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order, eliminating the IRS argument that they couldn't comply because taxpayer information is private. Washington Times: ‚ÄúThis court questions whether section 6103 should or would shield records that indicate confidential taxpayer information was misused, or that government officials made improper attempts to access that information,‚ÄĚ the judge wrote in denying the¬†IRS‚Äôs request to close out the case.

    A federal judge Friday ordered the IRS to turn over the records of any requests from the White House seeking taxpayersí private information from the tax agency, delivering a victory to a group that for two years has been trying to pry the data loose. Itís not clear that there were any such requests ó but Judge Amy Berman Jackson said the IRS cannot just refuse to say so by citing taxpayer confidentiality laws, known as section 6103 of the tax code. ďThis court questions whether section 6103 should or would shield records that indicate confidential taxpayer information was misused,...

    If she were anyone but a Clinton, would Hillary's campaign not be kaput? Imagine: you're a big Dem donor, elected official in an early primary state or grassroots organizer trying to decide whose bandwagon to jump on. You turn on Morning Joe today, and there's Ron Fournier, MSM member-in-good-standing and someone who's said he's voted for Clintons more than anyone in DC, saying about the email scandal that Hillary "might pay a big price criminally." Schnikes! Where did you say Bernie Sanders is appearing next? As bad as Fournier's statement was for Hillary's fortunes, something Joe Scarborough said might be...

    Thousands of clients using the affair-oriented Ashley Madison website listed email addresses registered to the White House, top federal agencies and military branches, a data dump by hackers revealed.

Indeed, more than 15,000 of the email addresses used to register accounts were hosted on government and military servers. Buried in the list are emails that could be tied to multiple administration agencies, including the State Department and Department of Homeland Security, as...

    Hundreds of email addresses from the Obama White House and key federal agencies have been uncovered in a leaked list of clients who use Ashley Madison, the website that encourages people to sign up for a chance to cheat on their spouse. Hackers broke into the cheating website, and late Tuesday, Wired.com reported that information on 32 million users was posted on a "dark" website used by well-known hackers. The data includes much of the personal information of the alleged users, and one link made available breaks the data down into how many clients come from various government websites. According...

    Then quickly backs down when called on it. One of the worst promises Barack Obama ever made - and thatís saying something - continues to vex him and his administration because of the political and logistical nightmares involved with carrying it out. Thank God for small favors. So despite an executive order he signed on the first day of his presidency, the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay remains in operation, and the administration continues to stumble in its pursuit of a way to close it down. Letís just say this up front: Guantanamo should never close. The establishment of the...

    'Heard about it from the news reports' If youíre even a casual observer of current events, youíve probably seen the gruesome Planned Parenthood videos. If youíre a reporter, blogger, commentator, or just a regular person who follows politics, youíve definitely seen them. Given that fact, its a safe bet that someone whose day-to-day life is 100% tied to the 24 hour news cycle has seen them. Letís face it, if everything you do is about handling various sectors of the news media, you have to know what youíre talking about, right? Apparently, no, thatís not right. When CNNís Jake Tapper...
