Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino slams FBI, Clinton in epic Twitter tirade

Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino in a series of tweets this week slammed FBI Director James Comey for letting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off the hook despite the fact she transmitted state secrets – classified and above – via a private, unsecured email server.

Jenny Beth Martin: ‘I do not want, five years from now, to have my now-13-year-old daughter tell me she has just been drafted against her will’

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column lays out the real purpose behind the clause in the National Defense Authorization Act, passed this week by the Senate, that mandates 18-year-old women register for selective service in the event of a draft – and it has nothing to do with being more inclusive and curbing gender discrimination. The Washington Times has the commentary: I do not want, five years from now, to have my now-13-year-old daughter tell me she has just been drafted against her will, and forced by government mandate to put her life plans on hold for two years and make herself available for a combat unit ...

It would protect ...

ICYMI: Congress could learn a lesson in financial stewardship from this Tennessee teen with a heart of gold

Tennessee teen Kevuntez King from age twelve to age nineteen worked selling newspapers so he could go to college without borrowing a dime in student loans – and so his single mother wouldn’t have to dip into her own purse. Congressional officials would do well to take some cues from this young man. Fox-affiliate Q13 has the scoop: When it came down to school, my mom didn’t have to come out of pocket to do anything or I didn’t have to take out any loans to go to school,” he told WHBQ. He earned $200 every Sunday for five years straight and was just accepted into Tennessee State University. King has this piece of advice to share: ...

ATLANTA, Ga – Tea Party Patriots CEO and Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today reacting to comments made by Veterans’ Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald comparing the length of time veterans wait for health care to the length of time people wait in line at Disneyland. “Today’s comment by President Obama’s Veterans’ Affairs Secretary that VA shouldn’t be judged on the amount of time veterans wait to receive care because Disney doesn’t use wait times as a metric in its amusement parks shows just how out-of-touch the Obama Administration is with the needs of veterans, and anyone who can't see the difference ...

You will not believe how many credit hours it takes to qualify for this Tennessee license

A longtime hairdresser in Tennessee was driven out-of-state when Tennessee shampoo-licensing laws became too burdensome to handle. The Daily Signal has the story: In 1996, the Tennessee General Assembly passed a law requiring natural hair stylists to attain a cosmetologist’s license through the state’s Board of Cosmetology and Barber Examiners. Natural hair braiders like Nutall had excelled in their craft for years, learning braiding from their mothers and grandmothers. But now, the state was telling them they had to log more than 1,500 hours of education through an eight-week course with costs topping $12,000, Nutall recalled, and all for ...

Editor: U.S. credit will max out when the world ‘loses confidence in the dollars we owe’

A financial historian who has been writing for decades about economics says it's time to stop incurring debt otherwise we will soon find our proverbial credit card has been declined. TIME has the commentary: We owe more than we can easily repay. We spend too much and borrow too much. Worse, we promise too much. We conjure dollar bills by the trillions–pull them right out of thin air. I won’t insist that this can’t go on, because it has. I only say that it will eventually stop. I don’t know the date, but I believe that I know the reason. It will stop when the world loses confidence in the dollars we owe. Come that moment of truth, the ...

Heads up: These 8 Obamacare co-ops will probably fail this year

The health-insurance co-ops created under Obamacare are falling like dominoes, with eight of the remaining 11 likely to collapse within the year, according to analysis from an investigative reporter. The Daily Caller has the scoop: Twelve of the original 23 federally financed co-ops have already collapsed. The co-op program was funded with $2.5 billion in 2010. “In general, there’s not a turnaround in sight. The same problems that plagued them before are continuing,” Thomas P. Miller, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute who previously served as the senior health economist for the congressional Joint Economic Committee, told ...
