Obamacare Slashes Senior Home Health Care Services

In early April, the Obama Administration delayed cuts in the Medicare Advantage program mandated by the ObamaCare law. These plans, used by 30% of Medicare beneficiaries, supplement traditional Medicare coverage. The planned cuts to the MA program risked a political firestorm just months before the midterm elections. While MA received a short-term pardon, the Obama Administration is going forward with dramatic cuts to home health care services for seniors. 23 Apr 2014

Bundy Family Says 'Euthanized' Cattle Shot Multiple Times

Ammon Bundy, son of embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, said some of the dead cattle the family found after the federal government backed down from a tense standoff over a week ago had been shot as many as five times – seemingly more than necessary to kill the animals. 23 Apr 2014

Study: Claims Of Common Core Advocates Not Valid

Supporters of the Common Core standards frequently make the claim that the standards are rigorous, reflect college-readiness, and have been internationally benchmarked and are, therefore, comparable with standards of high-achieving nations. A new study, however, challenges these claims. 23 Apr 2014

Conservative Oklahoma Senate candidate T.W. Shannon has opened up a 10-point lead after trailing Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) by 35 points just two months ago in the race to replace retiring Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). That represents a net swing of 45 points in Shannon's favor. 23 Apr 2014

Alaska Energy Boom Starts Cranking Up

In a flurry of Alaskan oil deals, London-based BP announced a sale of interests to Houston-based Hilcorp in four North Slope oil fields and the use of the proceeds for a big growth of investments on the North Slope. The major reason for America’s energy crisis over the last two decades was the 72% decline of Alaska oil production. However, passage of Bill 21’s exploration and development tax cuts is igniting a new American energy boom. 23 Apr 2014

The Land Grabbing Feds

In October 1980, Gerald Chaffin threw gasoline on his wood-frame home and burned it to the ground. He did it at the behest of the federal government. His crime? The BLM controlled the land on which his home had been located. He was the third owner of the home, which had stood for 37 years to house oil workers. His house, the BLM said, was trespassing. It would have to go. 23 Apr 2014

Meet The Drone-Shooting Montana Congressional Candidate

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) shot a cap-and-trade bill, and a Alabama congressional candidate shot a printed copy of Obamacare, but Matt Rosendale, the Montana GOP congressional candidate, took the meme to a new level when he shot a drone that had trained its camera on him for a recent ad. 23 Apr 2014

Colorado Democrats Abandon Bill to Ban State Regulation of Abortion

Last Wednesday, Colorado Democrats abandoned a NARAL-supported bill that would have banned any state regulation of abortion. The proposed legislation was dropped after the Democrat state senator who is the deciding vote publicly expressed his concerns about the proposal, making it evident Democrats might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber in which they hold only a single-seat majority. 23 Apr 2014

Obama's Aunt Zeituni Was Key to His Kenya Memoir

President Barack Obama has skipped the funeral of his aunt, Zeituni Onyango, to play golf--even though the 61-year-old was critical to his trip to Kenya as a young man, and featured prominently in the first of his two memoirs, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. "Aunt Zeituni," as he called her, had guided Obama around his father's ancestral homeland and introduced him to many of his long-lost relatives. 23 Apr 2014

Justices Skeptical of Ohio’s 'Ministry of Truth'

Obamacare, abortion, and political censorship were front and center today at the Supreme Court as the justices heard oral argument in a case involving an Ohio law that makes it a crime to “make a false statement concerning the voting record of a candidate or public official” during an election campaign. The Justices’ questions raised serious doubts about the constitutionality of the Ohio law and similar statutes in more than fifteen states. 22 Apr 2014

Sen. Jeff Sessions: Amnesty Advocates Will 'Hollow Out' Middle Class Even More

In light of a report that found that America's middle class is no longer the world's richest, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has been a relentless champion for the American worker in the immigration debate, blasted President Barack Obama and Congress for pushing for an "unprecedented surge in new immigration" while the middle class is getting decimated. 22 Apr 2014

Unmasking the Imperial Presidency

"Imperial Presidency" perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the U.S. Constitution. Criticisms of how President Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum. 22 Apr 2014

Democrat Candidates Belittle Opponents' Military Records

A series of instances in which Democratic candidates have belittled their opponents' military service is prompting a push-back from veterans groups and Republicans who note that the attacks are coming from career politicians who never served in the armed forces. 22 Apr 2014

Mary Landrieu, the Counterfeit Candidate

When Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu’s first television ad hit the airwaves this week, it purportedly highlighted her “efforts to stand up to the administration in order to fight for Louisiana, and protect and strengthen our energy industry that supports 300,000 high-paying jobs.” The commercial shows various clips of the senator on television news shows followed by clips of her from the hearing. Or so it seemed. 22 Apr 2014

Earth Day Miracle: Tourism Booms in Florida Despite Global Warming

Warm sunshine and sandy beaches make south Florida and its crown city, Miami, a haven for tourists, but the area is increasingly endangered by sea level rise, experts said Tuesday. During a special Senate hearing held in Miami Beach, Senator Bill Nelson described south Florida as "Ground Zero" for climate change and its threats to coastal communities. 22 Apr 2014

Hoosiers Against Common Core Blasts Gov. Pence as Panel Approves a 'Rebranded' Common Core

Despite significant warnings from standards writers opposed to Common Core, such as fellow Hoosier Dr. James Milgram, Indiana’s Gov. Mike Pence (R) and his Education Roundtable recommended Monday that the third draft of a new set of math and English Language Arts standards be adopted by the state school board to replace the Common Core standards. The problem is that parents who oppose the new standards and advisers Pence sought out on both sides of the debate say these new standards are strikingly similar to the Common Core and, in some cases, even inferior. 22 Apr 2014

Supreme Court Upholds Affirmative Action Ban

On Apr. 22 in Schuette v. BAMN, the Supreme Court of the United States held 6-to-2 that a Michigan constitutional amendment ending racial preferences in many aspects of state government does not violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. 22 Apr 2014

Bundy Family Supporter: 'I Don't Think This Will End Well'

Former NH Republican Party chair and current Tea Party leader Jack Kimball said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-NV) description of those supporting the Bundy family as "domestic terrorists" is indicative of a continuing face-off that will not "end well." 22 Apr 2014

Poll: Democrats in Worse Position Than 2010

A new Fox News poll goes a long way to explaining the growing anxiety among Democrats about the upcoming midterm elections. Not only is support for Obama and his signature ObamaCare law underwater, both are more unpopular than they were at this point ahead of the mid-term elections in 2010. Support for the Democrats and ObamaCare, in fact, is less than it was on the eve of the 2010 election, when Republicans routed Democrats up and down the ballot. 22 Apr 2014

Supreme Court Upholds Michigan Affirmative Action Ban

In a 6-to-2 decision in Shuette v. BAMN, the Supreme Court upheld a new provision in the Michigan Constitution that bars state agencies from using racial preferences (i.e., affirmative action) when making state decisions, including college admissions at schools such as the University of Michigan. 22 Apr 2014
