Bill Clinton denies calling Obamacare ‘the craziest thing’ but check out this video

Former President Bill Clinton – after he was questioned by an audience member at a recent event – apparently denied an earlier statement in which he said out-of-control Obamacare premiums and diminishing coverage for those working overtime are “the craziest” thing. “That is not at all what I said. No? Oh, really? Go read it,” the former president said to the audience member. Let’s “go read” his earlier statement for ourselves, like the former president suggested. “So, you’ve got this crazy system where – all of a sudden – 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, ...

Study: Common Core benefits to students, educators ‘elusive’

Recent analysis released last month of federal funding for Common Core standards shows the only winners of its implementation are not students but those who set the draft the curriculum and set the agenda. The Washington Times has the details: The study, titled “Smart Money? Philanthropic and Federal Funding for the Common Core,” was released in September by the Education Policy Analysis Archives. It concludes, “In essence, those who set directions for the Common Core and those who provided resources for its implementation have benefited, even as potential benefits to schools, educators, and students are elusive, and the entire claim may ...

Sen. Mike Lee: Spending bill Senate just passed ‘keeps the government headed in the same direction’

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) in a 12-minute Facebook Live video Wednesday explains why he voted against the continuing resolution, a stopgap spending bill that keeps the government operating through Dec. 9. “It just keeps the government headed in the same direction – doesn’t really change much. It can contain a few revisions so it’s not really a budget, but it is a spending bill – a spending bill that simply says ‘Keep things more or less as they are subject to few minor changes,” says Sen. Lee. Members of Congress year after year face pressure from government employees and other groups to pass such resolutions, even if it means subver...

Jenny Beth Martin talks IRS, Obama’s internet giveaway with Daily Signal’s Genevieve Wood

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin recently sat down with Daily Signal Senior Contributor Genevieve Wood to discuss Congress’ pending vote on whether to impeach President Obama’s corrupt IRS Commissioner John Koskinen as well as to discuss President Obama’s plan in the coming weeks to hand over regulatory control of the internet. “Part of the reason [Commissioner Koskinen] needs to be impeached is because he misled Congress and he lied to Congress,” says Jenny Beth. The commissioner took the reins at the scandal-ridden agency in the wake of news the agency was targeting Americans for their political beliefs but, instead ...

Sen. Cruz: Foreign nations void of free-speech protections have no place regulating U.S. internet use

  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a Facebook post Tuesday invoked former President Reagan as he urged “colleagues on both sides of the aisle” to defend the internet against President Obama’s plans to cede control of it on Oct. 1 to an international organization that would inevitably leave the internet more vulnerable to censorship and taxation. “I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come together to ensure that we protect freedom of the #Internet for generations to come,” says Sen. Cruz. The senator, who is chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts, gathered half a ...

5 of the best quotes from liberty-loving suffragette Susan B. Anthony

At the heart of the women’s suffrage movement is the all-American desire to be independent – the desire to map our own course and be unfettered by anyone who violates our individual conscience. Here’s to the brave suffragettes who boldly persuaded our political leaders to give women the same independence as their male peers. In honor of the ratification of the 19th Amendment – which gives women the right to cast their own ballots – this day in 1920, here are some of our favorite quotes from liberty-loving pioneer Susan B. Anthony. 5. “There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.” ...
