Inside Washington's Bipartisan "Housing Reform"
Earlier this month the U.S. Senate Banking Committee passed the so-called "Housing Finance Reform and Taxpayer Protection Act of 2013" by a bipartisan 13-9 vote. Proponents argue that the bill is a model of how the federal government can manage the major challenges in our economy, but they neglect to mention is taxpayers remain very much on the hook for public losses under this new proposed housing finance framework.   

Congress needs to force Audit of IRS
The very fact that donations to groups that were legally engaged in the public square prompted IRS audits is chilling to all future political speech, and goes to a systemic abuse of power that threatens the basic core of political participation.

Dr. Piketty is committing Malpractice
In any profession, prescription without diagnosis is malpractice and that includes the profession of Economics. Just as there is no need to cure people who have red hair, income inequality isn't an ailment; it is a sign that free markets are properly assessing the value that results from the labor of people in different professions.

As seen on TV: Obama's leadership failure
All of the White House's claimed ignorance leaves the American people ignorant of one important thing: who exactly is in charge of the executive branch of the United States government?

Republican primary theme: Beating incumbents is difficult
That is real lesson that can be taken from the Republican Senate primary election in Kentucky pitting Minority Leader Mitch McConnell against businessman Matt Bevins. There is a reason why incumbents who choose to run for reelection overwhelmingly get reelected.

The liberty and energy connection
People on the left want to interfere, restrict, and hamper North America's energy abundance—which will take away America's ability to provide cheap and reliable power to her citizens and take away the ability to grow the economy and create wealth. Why would anyone want to do that?

Obama owns GM recall malfeasance
The Department of Transportation is fining General Motors (GM) $35 million for waiting too long to recall 2.6 million vehicles with faulty ignition switches. The only thing missing in these product recall and government fines is an acknowledgement of the company's majority shareholder when the malfeasance took place.

Federal employees and a contractor diverted more than $1 million of charitable contributions to spending on themselves for in-office massages, meals at every meeting and other luxuries and unnecessary expenses, a government audit found.


NRSC - Barack Obama Admits Jeanne Shaheen's Liberal Secret at Ritzy Bel Air Fundraiser

May 9, 2014

Barack Obama Admits Jeanne Shaheen's Liberal Secret at Ritzy Bel Air Fundraiser 
A Vote for Jeanne Shaheen = A Vote for Barack Obama 

President Obama held a ritzy fundraiser in liberal Los Angeles to rake in much needed campaign cash for vulnerable Democratic Senators like Jeanne Shaheen. President Obama told the crowd of millionaires and billionaires that while his name may not be on the ticket, he is running through proxies like Jeanne Shaheen.

Jeanne Shaheen must have cringed when the President actually admitted what other Democrats have tried to hide for months: "I’m in trouble at home. I told Michelle back in 2012 I had run my last campaign. But a couple months ago, I had to let her in on a secret and that is, 'Honey, I’ve got one more campaign I’ve got to run," the president joked at the Bel-Air home of Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and his wife, Cindy. "

Earlier this year, Jeanne Shaheen completely dodged questions about appearing with Obama. Yet the truth is that Jeanne Shaheen is a beneficiary of these liberal fundraisers and has fundraised with the Obama Administration. The American taxpayers are even being forced to pick up the tab for Obama's extravagant fundraising event benefitting Jeanne ShaheenJeanne Shaheen has made a habit of ignoring the President in public, but privately accepting piles of liberal political cash that he raises for her. President Obama's revelation is further proof that Jeanne Shaheen is just a proxy vote for the liberal Obama agenda in the Senate.

"President Obama admits that a vote for Jeanne Shaheen is in essence a vote for him, which gives Granite Staters more than enough reasons to vote against her," said NRSC Press Secretary Brook Hougesen. "If Jeanne Shaheen wants voters to take her at her word, she will refuse to accept liberal campaign money and resources from both President Obama and the DSCC.  Until then, voters should assume that Jeanne Shaheen is simply a proxy for Barack Obama."


Heritage - Well, I Guess Obama Hasn't Healed the Planet

Well, I Guess Obama Hasn't Healed the Planet

When Barack Obama won his party’s presidential nomination in 2008, he proclaimed that “generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that… this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Six years later, the president is threatening to go around Congress and upend the American economy in a misguided attempt to secure his legacy on climate change.

He’s gone from the candidate who said, “I face this challenge with profound humility and knowledge of my own limitations” to the president who says if Congress won’t act on this issue, “I will.”
