IRS persists in targeting Americans for their political beliefs


This gun-toting American woman has medaled at the last six consecutive Olympic games – so why haven’t we heard about her?

California native and women’s skeet-shooting bronze medalist Kim Rhode’s road to Rio was one marked by obstacles: a challenging pregnancy, surgery, the death of numerous friends. "What the Olympics represent is that journey,” Rhode told NBC. “Overcoming those bumps, the obstacles, the good, the bad.” To top it off, Rhode’s historic Olympic career – the longevity of which is rivaled by few other Olympians – hasn’t gotten the accolades it deserves. “Were she involved in any other Olympic sports, she would be seen as a wonderful spokesperson. She is a mother and a wife. She plays ‘Pokemon Go’ and Clash of Clans. She ...

PBS’ Charlie Rose, Obama speechwriters laugh hysterically over “If you like your insurance, you can keep it” line

PBS’ Charlie Rose got chummy with former speechwriters under Obama David Litt, Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett to gush over their prosaic prowess and – apparently – make light of the infamous “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it” line that left millions of Americans betrayed by their commander in chief when that very promise turned out to be a falsehood. “Lovett wrote the line about, ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep it,’” Favreau said before the four men erupted in laughter.
