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.

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 ...

National debt to soar to 77 percent of U.S. gross domestic product by end of fiscal year

Spendthrifts in Washington, D.C. by the end of September will have sent our national debt soaring by three percentage points to 77 percent of gross domestic product, the greatest ratio of debt-to-GDP we’ve seen since 1950 when we were still paying down debt from World War II.

Sauter… Sauter, the author of Homeland Security, a McGraw-Hill textbook ...

LifeZette has the scoop: When Judicial Watch filed its Freedom of Information Act appeal in 2014, it sought to overturn a lower court’s ruling to keep the information sealed. When the Department of Justice failed to respond in a timely fashion to the request, Judicial Watch sued. In 2014, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa ...

Source: FBI agents believe there was ‘inside deal’ in Hillary email scandal

FBI Director Comey’s decision to let former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off scot-free for exposing state secrets via an unsecure email server rather than recommend the DOJ press criminal charges against her has more than one person at the bureau foaming at the mouth – and rightfully so. The New York Post has the scoop: Meanwhile, FBI agents expressed their “disappointment” over FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges against Clinton, sources close to the matter told The Post. “FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one source...
