Missteps by Feds Exposed on Boston Marathon Bombings

Authorities must investigate every shred of evidence and pursue every lead until they determine who else, if anyone, was involved in this terrorist attack on the United States.

Congress, Obama Plan Amnesty in Secret

Senator Leahy has one measly hearing on the calendar, scheduled for this week – despite the fact that the amnesty legislation has not been presented yet! Not good enough, say Senate Republicans.

HHS Spreads Sequester Scaremongering in Letter to Governors

"[T]he Education Department for days was unable to cough up the name of a single school district where these notices had been delivered … [T]here is no reason to hype the statistics — or to make scary pronouncements on pink slips being issued based on misinformation. Indeed, Duncan’s lack of seriousness about being scrupulously factual undercuts the administration’s claim that the cuts are a serious problem." Apr 1, 2013 4:46 PM PT

WH Claims Bin Laden Burial Details Would Lead to 'Retaliatory Attacks'

So first, we were told that we could not see videos or photos of the burial, and now we are told we can’t see written information about the burial. This attempt to rewrite FOIA law to include a “let’s not offend the terrorists” exemption is another example of the Obama administration’s thinking it is the law unto itself.
