Gates-Funded Fordham Institute's Petrilli: 'Pro-Common Core Side Is Still Way Out Ahead'

Ardent Common Core supporter Mike Petrilli, who, as of August 1, is the new president of the Fordham Institute, wrote in a piece on the organization’s website that though “there’s little doubt that in the ‘air war’ over the Common Core – especially in the conservative media – we’re getting our butts kicked,” the fact that 42 states are still on board with the controversial standards means that “the pro-Common Core side is still way out ahead.” 1 Aug 2014

Senate Now Mad at CIA Director? How About When He Was A Leaker on National Security?

Two Democratic senators, Mark Udall (D-CO) and Martin Heinrich (D-NM), have called on CIA Director John Brennan to resign after he admitted that the CIA had spied on Senate computers used by Senate staffers to research a report on the agency’s interrogation and detention practices during the Bush administration. Brennan apparently called Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to apologize. Despite this admission, however, neither President Obama nor Feinstein has called for Brennan’s resignation and the likelihood is the president won’t. 1 Aug 2014

Blue State Blues: Investigate the UN for War Crimes

The United Nations, predictably, has condemned Israel for defending itself, suggesting that Israel may have committed war crimes in fighting to protect its citizens from rockets and terror tunnels as Hamas hides and fights among Palestinian civilians.

Obamacare Going Back to Supreme Court

Late Thursday, lawyers challenging a key part of Obamacare petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to take their case. The Court is very likely to grant the petition, resulting in oral argument in January or February of 2015 and a decision next June as the presidential campaign heats up. 1 Aug 2014

Lamar Alexander Skips Senate Vote against Obama's Executive Amnesty

On Thursday evening, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) had a chance to stand with American workers and against amnesty by voting with Sen.

Obama's 5 Top Flip-Flops on Immigration

Boehner Border Bill Down to the Wire

A last-minute plan from Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to provide conservatives a vote on a bill attempting to keep President Obama from unilaterally granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens has already run into fierce resistance from the very people it was intended to placate, leaving passage of the main border crisis bill in doubt. 31 Jul 2014

Gaffey Grimes: Put Bumper Stickers In Your Yard!
