NBC, AP publish article saying crooked democrat Menendez on trial in New Jersey is a Republican

from Gateway Pundit: Fake news, dishonest reporting, call it what you will. At least the lefties at the NY Times neglected to give Menendez's party affiliation.

Fast-growing green energy 'scam' puts taxpayers and homeowners at risk

from The Washington Examiner: "Solutions" to our "global climate crisis" always seems to rely on the heavy hand of government.

The Profit Incentives Driving The Police State

by John W. Whitehead. If there is an absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off. Not only are American taxpayers forced to “spend more on state, municipal, and federal taxes than the annual financial burdens of food, clothing, and housing combined,” but we’re  ... MORE

23% Of Americans In Their Working Prime Are Unemployed

by Michael Snyder. Did you know that when you take the number of working age Americans that are officially unemployed (8.2 million) and add that number to the number of working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force” (94.3 million), that gives us a grand total of 102.5 million working age Americans that do not have a job right ...

John Stossel: Political Arrogance

Candidates advocate for a big fat government.   After the Iowa caucus results, it looks like Hillary Clinton vs. Marco Rubio in November! They lead the betting at ElectionBettingOdds.com. This scares me. Neither candidate shows any interest in limited government. They scoff at anyone who suggests that their grand schemes do more harm than good.  ... MORE

Taxpayers And Property Rights Win In Rams Move To LA

by Raymond J Nhan.      Eminent domain and public funded statia. Recent news of the Los Angeles Rams is a win-win-win for the NFL and taxpayers in Los Angeles and St. Louis. Though citizens of the Gateway City may feel differently right now, they just avoided a massive waste of taxpayer funds and a series of eminent domain abuses. And the   ... MORE

Wall Street Journal: American Tax Dollars For The Mullahs

Tehran gets more cash while its U.S. victims get nothing.  Ali Khamenei congratulated Iran’s diplomats on Tuesday for making the “front of arrogance and bullying”—that would be the U.S.—retreat. Iran’s Supreme Leader has good reason to be happy. Having preserved the core of his nuclear capabilities, his regime is now on the receiving    ... MORE

Melody Gutierrez: Jerry Brown's Scheme To Grow Welfare And Fix Roads Will Cost California Taxpayers Big Time

$7 billion more to be spent on IHSS welfare expansion.  Gov. Jerry Brown doubled down on his calls for fiscal prudence as he delivered a State of the State speech Thursday that recounted what California has accomplished and proposed little in the way of new policies or programs. Instead, Brown said his focus this year will be on how the state   ... MORE

Tami Luhby: No One Stays In The Top 1% For Long

Up and down the income ladder.      Made it into the Top 1%? Congrats! Just don't expect to stay there for very long. The Top 1% is often considered an exclusive, monolithic group, but folks actually rise up into it and fall out of it quite often. That's because their incomes can vary widely year to year. Some 11% of Americans will join the Top 1% for    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Busybody Left

Self-appointed minders of YOUR business.   The political left has been trying to run other people's lives for centuries. So we should not be surprised to see the Obama administration now trying to force neighborhoods across America to have the mix of people the government wants them to have. There are not enough poor people living in  ... MORE

Some Members Of Congress Want To Stop Squandering Tax Money On The DEA's Failed Marijuana Eradication Program

by Christopher Ingraham.    The Drug Enforcement Administration is not having a great year. The chief of the agency stepped down in April under a cloud of scandal. The acting administrator since then has courted ridicule for saying pot is "probably not" as dangerous as heroin, and more recently he provoked 100,000 petition-signers and seven       ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Moral Hazard

Incentives matter.    One of the things that makes it tough to figure out how much has to be charged for insurance is that people behave differently when they are insured from the way they behave when they are not insured. In other words, if one person out of 10,000 has his car set on fire, and it costs an average of $10,000 to restore the car to its  ... MORE

A New Taxpayer Bailout To Cover Up ObamaCare’s Failure?

by Betsy McCaughey.      How dare the Obama administration bail out insurance companies with our money in order to hide ObamaCare’s failures. Thursday, just hours after giant insurer UnitedHealthcare said it’s losing money selling ObamaCare plans and will likely exit the health exchanges next year, the Obama administration quietly       ...

Victor Davis Hanson: Can California Be Saved?

So naturally rich but so poorly run.  Crime is back up in California. Los Angeles reported a 20.6 percent increase in violent crimes over the first half of 2015 and nearly an 11 percent increase in property crimes. Last year, cash-strapped California taxpayers voted for Proposition 47, which so far has let thousands of convicted criminals go free  ... MORE

Ed Krayewski: Freddie Gray Death Ruled Homicide - All Cops Involved Being Charged Are Still Drawing Paychecks

Government has its perks.     The state's attorney, Marilyn Mosby, announced Freddie Gray's death, from a spinal injury incurred while in police custody, has been ruled a homicide. Mosby announced charges for all the officers involved. ABC News reports: Mosby announced a series of charges now facing the six police officers involved in putting     ... MORE

Look Out, Taxpayers: Student Loans Aren’t Being Repaid

More government folly comes home to roost.     The more than $1 trillion in student loan debt is a looming problem for taxpayers because the borrowers aren't paying it back in great numbers or amounts. "Widespread failure to repay is a problem for the lender, in this case, federal taxpayers," economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of   ... MORE

Sports Stadiums Throw Taxpayers For A Loss

by Steve Chapman.     It's a play fake that never fails. Since 1995, Los Angeles has been an anomaly: a huge city with lots of sports fans that has exactly as much professional football as Billings, Montana. This week, Angelenos got a bit of good news: They still aren't getting an NFL franchise. A corporation called AEG announced Monday that it    ... MORE

Keep Vaccine Choice—So Long as Families Pay Their Way

by J.D. Tuccille.    A friend of mine who worked in pediatric private practice in the Washington, D.C. suburbs had a strict policy on vaccination: If you didn't vaccinate your children, you had to find another practice. He would try to persuade, he would give several warnings, but ultimately, those who didn't vaccinate had to find another provider.       ... MORE
