One gauge of a president's favorability is the assorted descriptors the public volunteers to a pollster about the leader of the Free World. The Pew Research Center has tracked the assorted description of President Obama over the years, and has this to say: "Terms like incompetent and liar now are among the most frequently used words to describe Obama."
Sen. Mike Lee's new book, "Why John Roberts Was Wrong About Healthcare," includes a dramatic theory — that the leading Supreme Court justice did not want to rule in favor of Obamacare but was pressured and intimidated.
Party like it's 2009? Fourteen Republican lawmakers, media mavens and liberty-minded activists will crowd onto the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, ready to rumble as they did four years ago when the tea party first crackled to life.
Conservative radio commentator Glenn Beck and liberal Hollywood movie-maker Michael Moore have found common ground on the National Security Agency whistleblower, Edward Snowden: He's a hero.
Whenever a serious dilemma arises in America, a debate soon follows. And whoever is able to frame the debate gains the upper hand. For example, abortion is not about taking the life of the unborn, it's about choice. And marriage is not defined by the formal union of a man and a woman, it's about equality.
Media frenzy over old news that the National Security Agency monitors the vast patterns of citizen communications has distracted and alarmed the public, leaving it to ponder both the content of the Fourth Amendment and the motivations of newly uncloaked "whistleblower" Edward Snowden, a former IT security contractor with the federal agency who shared its clandestine details with a pair of news organizations. But wait. National Intelligence Director James R. Clapper issued some details of his own via a straightforward public statement about the stakes at hand:
Capitol Hill Republicans on Sunday called the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative groups "chilling" and demanded a congressional inquiry.
Senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011, according to a draft of an inspector general's report obtained by The Associated Press that seemingly contradicts public statements by the IRS commissioner.
I raced off stage in Tampa after throttling my 6511th high energy rockout, mopped up as much dripping sweat as I could, changed into dry clothes, grabbed a Gatorade and a sack of food, hung onto my gorgeous wife Shemane and headed to the airport lickity split.
The growing backlash against the nationwide K-12 school standards known as Common Core, bubbling to the surface in Indiana, Michigan and elsewhere, has become the hottest story in education.
"Today, the National Rifle Association is a record 5 million strong. Even as thousands of Americans join our cause every day, the media and political elites denigrate us. They cringe at the sight of long lines at gun shows. They mock Americans who are buying firearms and ammunition at a record pace. They scorn and scold the NRA. They don't get it, because they don't get America."
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, the investigation into its perpetrators has been marred by a series of bizarre and even alarming actions by President Obama and his administration. Unfortunately, these increasingly suggest a pattern that is at odds with our national and homeland security.
Nationally known media personality Glenn Beck said the police response to the Boston Marathon bombing attacks reminded of Nazi Germany, with door-to-door searches to root out Jews during the Holocaust.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano dismissed a question "not worthy of an answer" by Rep. Jeff Duncan during a Capitol Hill hearing Thursday, who asked about the alleged deportation of a Saudi national who was questioned as a witness in the Boston bombings.
The Common Core system is meant to unify K-12 education standards in states across the nation. It's having the opposite effect within the Republican Party, as a rift grows between supporters including high-profile figures such as Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels and other Republicans who had a hand in crafting it and those who fear it's a well-disguised federal takeover of schools.
He said the observation was "funny, nothing more" and that the series "is 1 of my fav shows.
"You probably pay good money every month to your TV provider for access to channels like MSNBC and Al-Jazeera America — channels that you might not watch, or even agree with. Adding The Blaze will ensure that you and your family have a source of news and analysis that you can trust and that doesn't betray your values. If we succeed, then we change the media. If we change the media, we control the debate. If we control the debate, we change politics. And if we change politics, we change the country," declares Glenn Beck, in a new public pitch to bring The Blaze, his independent libertarian broadcast network, to cable TV.
