Gov. Rick Perry just shared the reason why he’s joined “Dancing With The Stars” and it will melt your heart

Former Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) is already waltzing his way into the hearts of Americans nationwide after officially announcing on Twitter why he’s joined the latest season of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” “I’m dedicated to helping #veterans however possible, and I’m going to use @DancingABC as a stage to do that. #DWTS,” Perry tweeted Tuesday morning. The former leader of the Lone Star State has a history of reaching out to and showing his appreciation for our military men and women, including in 2015 helping an Army green beret suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after his six deployments cope with the loss of his ...

As Obamacare co-ops crumble, residents in five states have no choice in their Obamacare exchange

Lawmakers nationwide gave speeches touting the Obamacare exchanges, saying the exchanges will create “competition” (though how this works when the exchanges are all hewn from the same rock and under the auspices of Obamacare apparently never occurred to these legislators) and thereby drive down health-insurance prices. They couldn’t have more wrong as the exchanges are crumbling. A total of five states now only have a single Obamacare-exchange option. The Daily Signal has the details: Five states will be down to just one health insurer on the Obamacare marketplace next year, and consumers in 664 counties are projected to face that same ...

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 ...

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. The Washington Examiner has the scoop: The agency projected that the debt held by the public will rise 3 percentage points to 77 percent of U.S. gross domestic product by the end of fiscal year 2016 in September. Debt has not hit that ratio since 1950, when the government was still in the middle of paying down the debt it incurred paying for World War II. Over 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 ...
