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. President Obama, according to the Washington Free Beacon, on 36 occasions said his signature health-insurance law would not force ...

Columnist: ‘Work should be rewarded, not punished’

A writer and activist lobbying for right-to-work laws in Michigan criticized the status quo at the IRS and is pushing for a simpler tax code – one that doesn’t bog down hardworking American taxpayers. The Detroit News has the commentary: It’s a complex and corrupt system, now consisting of thousands of pages of instructions and explanations. But it doesn’t have to be this way. As government’s appetite for spending continues to grow, so do the taxes on workers and job providers. Why does Washington penalize workers and employers for earning and creating wealth? … If you are not an accountant, a professional lobbyist, or a politi...

(VIDEO) Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin’s Remarks from CPAC

Hello, CPAC! You know, the President of the United States last addressed this gathering eight years ago. Do the math – it was a different president then. As he sat in the Oval Office, preparing for that speech, he came across a phrase in the draft that confused him. So he asked, “What is this movement you keep talking about in the speech?” The speechwriter, stunned, responded. “Well, the CONSERVATIVE movement,” he answered. “You know, the one that started back in the sixties, when conservative groups first took root.” That apparently didn’t sit well with the President. “Let me tell you something,” he said. ...

The civil-rights division, says Haney, deleted nearly 80 records of investigations into individuals moving in and out of the country under the Visa Waiver Program – including an investigation into those at a Riverside, California mosque frequented by ...

Reading scores stagnant after Common Core banishes literary classics from schools nationwide

The work of legendary fiction writers is being banished to the school used-book sale thanks to Common Core standards that require students read less fiction and more nonfiction, a mandate some are attributing to students’ mediocre performance in math and reading. The Daily Caller has the details: The adoption and implementation of the Common Core State Standards Initiative in more than 40 states around the country since 2010 has wrought two major changes: (1) a notable decrease in the use of fiction and literature in America’s reading and English classes and (2) lower reading and math scores on the U.S. Department of Education-mandated ...
