Obamacare website scraped clean of ‘If you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ lie

Do you remember when President Obama promised “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor ? We do! But clearly it’s a line the Obama administration wants us to forget… The Weekly Standard has the details: "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was President Barack Obama's signature catchphrase he used to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people. Now Obamacare's flagship website, healthcare.gov, no longer even addresses the issue. Ironically, the section in question was the first public (if indirect) admission by the Obama administration that the president's promise was less than a "guarantee." As THE ...

Homeland security expert: Citizenship screening lacks questions about potential terrorist ties

Recent analysis from homeland-security expert Mark Sauter shows U.S. vetting of immigrants seeking citizenship status isn’t as thorough as it should be when it comes to filtering those with ties to top terror groups. The Washington Examiner has the story: While State Department and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service branch of the Department of Homeland Security do ask if immigrants have been involved in terrorism, the most well-known of over a dozen terrorist groups aren't listed in applications, according to the analysis from homeland security expert Mark A. Sauter… Sauter, the author of Homeland Security, a McGraw-Hill textbook ...

Hillary Clinton lied, didn’t turn over all her emails, FBI finds

Officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation discovered an additional 15,000 emails Hillary Clinton never turned over despite the former secretary of state’s insistence she had turned over every work-related email transmitted on her homebrew server when serving under President Obama. The Washington Times has the story: The Obama administration revealed the messages in a court hearing Monday. The 14,900 emails are just part of thousands the FBI has turned over, after it took control of Mrs. Clinton’s secret email server. The State Department said it will begin to process them and release them, though it could take months to put them ...

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 ...

Arkansas VA spent $408 million on solar-panel project as veterans faced brutal wait-times

Officials at an Arkansas Veterans Affairs hospital over a five-year period spent $408 million a so-called “green management” solar-panel project that went over schedule and over budget as former servicemen and women awaited care long overdue, according to a VA inspector-general report spurred by members of Congress. The Daily Caller has the details: The move to solar is part of the VA’s Green Management Program, which is tasked with installing renewable energy sources at various medical facilities. The probe included 11 out of 15 solar panel projects awarded from 2010 through 2013, which were still incomplete in 2015. Each of the 11 solar ...

Rep. Pompeo: Obama admin ‘violated federal law’ when it airlifted $400 million to ‘state sponsor of terrorism’

Lawmakers and policy experts alike are dumbfounded and furious over President Obama’s approval of a $400 million airlift to Iran, a leading state sponsor of terrorism, on the same day Iran released numerous Iranian-American hostages. The Daily Signal has the scoop: “I want to know what Obama administration employees were involved with this and how long do they serve in prison,” said Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., a member of the House Intelligence Committee. “There is no doubt they violated federal law when they transferred U.S. taxpayer funds to a state sponsor of terrorism.” Pompeo’s assertion to The Daily Signal goes farther than most ...

Daily Signal: Gun owners more law-abiding than law enforcement, study says

A new study unearthed by those at the news arm of the conservative Heritage Foundation finds Americans with concealed-carry permits are among the least likely to have a rap sheet, according to research conducted by the Crime Prevention Center. The Daily Signal has the story: The study compared permit holders to police, who committed 703 crimes from 2005 to 2007, and 113 of those were firearm violations. “It is impossible to think of any other group in the U.S. that is anywhere near as law-abiding,” reads a report on concealed-carry permit holders… “We find that permit holders are convicted of misdemeanors and felonies at less than a ...

Tea Party Patriots: Obamacare is Collapsing

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today after Aetna announced they are cancelling Obamacare expansion plans and stand to lose $300 million this year. “Obamacare is collapsing. Aetna just announced they stand to lose $300 million this year alone because of their participation in Obamacare, they’re pulling out and this shows just how toxic Obamacare is to both individuals and businesses.

WaPo: Hillary Clinton earns four Pinocchios for ‘cherry-picking’ answers on emails

Hillary Clinton continues to have trouble keeping her answers straight when it comes to the private email server she used as Secretary of State. Despite the fact that Clinton violated federal law by sending classified information through the server, she and her campaign still deny any wrongdoing. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Clinton said, “Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.” That comment earned Clinton four Pinocchios from the Washington Post. The ...
