    Vice President Kamala Harris sidestepped a question about who will be paying for the government's massive student loan handout program, and instead she opted to criticize the critics. Confronted by a Fox News producer with the fact that the government has yet to provide concrete information regarding where the money will come from, Harris did not even attempt to provide an answer to the question. "Well, let's start with this. First of all, a lot of the same people who are criticizing what we rightly did in following through on a commitment that we made to forgive student loan debt...

    (CNN) — Sean Hannity is a welfare queen. The controversial performance artist, host of the eponymous unreality TV show, has been revealed by The Guardian as a beneficiary of a federal mortgage guarantee program. The Guardian found that Hannity owns millions of dollars of real estate through more than 20 shell corporations, which shield his identity. The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, The Guardian notes, insured the mortgage loans with which Hannity purchased the properties. Let's be clear: This is a subsidy. This is a benefit. This is big government aiding a very wealthy man. This is welfare.

    This is part 1 of a series of episodes I am doing on the Seattle homeless crisis. It illustrates perfectly the problems with big government, the insanity of liberals and the great lengths these red diaper doper baby liberal degenerates will go to get a free lunch off the backs of those who earn their lunch by their own sweat and tears. This first episode is a prologue of sorts, at focus is the failure of Olympia and city hall in particular a taxpayer funded program, The committee to end homelessness in King county that has gotten little attention but...

    Glenn and TheBlaze have been covering the growing crisis at the southern border for a number of weeks now. With the situation further deteriorating, Glenn came before his audience on Monday morning with an interesting ask. In fact, Glenn described what he was about to say as “the hardest thing” he has ever asked for. But as he shared troubling new information about the humanitarian crisis at the border, Glenn asked his listeners to consider donating to Mercury One. I’m not going to tell you who is giving me this information because things down at the border are extraordinarily difficult...

    Perhaps I spend too much time lurking around left-leaning blogs, but there are many myths taken as fact without any additional analysis. One of the most prominent? The notion that red states take the most aid from the government. Mitt Romney sparked outrage during the 2012 election for his comments about the “47 percent” of Americans who are dependent on government. Romney was actually quoting the percentage of Americans who pay no federal income tax, not the percentage of people who receive government aid, which is a slightly larger 49 percent. In an article published before Romney’s gaffe, liberal economist...

    When Eugene Jenkins showed up at St. Paul AME Church at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, he didn’t know he would be one of the last people to get a ticket for assistance with his heating bill. He waited in line until 7 a.m., when officials started to hand out the tickets, then went home for a few hours before returning at 10 a.m. By the time he had finished up his paperwork, it was 1:15 p.m., making for a long day. Jimmie Samuel, executive director of the agency, said the need for assistance in Bibb County has spiked, while the available...

    A Cabinet minister was branded 'abhorrent' today after saying that the state should not provide limitless support to benefits claimants with large families. Campaigners reacted with fury after the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt savaged the policy of sizeable handouts totalling more than the average household earns. Mr Hunt claimed that the Government's proposed cap on benefits reflected the need for claimants to 'take responsibility' for their children.

    I am sure that most of you guys would have heard about the honorable gentleman MP Duwaisan and his suggestion that the government should give a Kuwaiti man KD8,000 (US$27,729.67) grant if he marries a Kuwaiti woman. Currently, the government pays KD 4,000 (US$13,864.89) per marriage. Duwaisan wants to double that amount since he claims that living expenses have doubled and lifestyles have also changed. So far, so good. The gentleman went to the extent of proposing that if the man acquires a second wife, he should be given another KD8,000. The condition is that the bride should be Kuwaiti....
