Breitbart: $22 Trillion For What?

The annual report by the Census Bureau on poverty was released this past week, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty. It should come as no surprise that the War on Poverty has not been a success by any stretch of the imagination. In 50 years, American taxpayers have spent an unimaginable $22 trillion on this so-called war.

According to Investor’s Business Daily: “Adjusting for inflation, [$22 trillion is] three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution. The federal government currently runs more than 80 means-tested welfare programs. These programs provide cash, food, housing and medical care to low-income Americans. Federal and state spending on these programs last year was $943 billion.”

There is no doubt that poverty is a major problem in the United States; however, today the poverty rate hovers around 14%, which is actually higher than the poverty rate when President Johnson’s programs were launched. How in the world is it possible that programs which spend approximately $943 billion annually have failed to even make a dent in the population of poor Americans?

The Cagle Post: Protecting The 7th Floor

Ever since four brave Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya two years ago, many questions have been raised about what then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew before, during, and after the fact. A shocking article by former CBS News investigative reporter Sheryl Attkisson published in The Daily Signal sheds light on what Hillary Clinton and her protectors did in the days and weeks after the attack. As someone who has investigated the Clintons for years, this type of cover up is nothing new and unfortunately expected. It’s in the Clinton playbook – obstruct and cover-up.

According to Attkisson’s reporting, “Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to ‘separate’ damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.” The story is based on an interview with Raymond Maxwell, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State who came forward with new details. For example, an office manager told Maxwell to “go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the ‘seventh floor’ in a bad light” – seventh floor was a code word for Hillary Clinton and her group of “principal advisors.”

It is no surprise that leading this clandestine effort was none other than Clinton’s Chief of Staff and confidant Cheryl Mills and Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. Both have extensive history with Hillary Clinton, and Cheryl Mills worked in the Clinton Administration during the myriad of scandals. Hillary wanted to keep whatever happened the night of September 11, 2012 in Libya under wraps that is why she tapped her most trusted aides to do her dirty work. Somewhere H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman would be proud.

Breitbart: A Politicized Justice Department

The latest twist to the ever-evolving IRS political targeting scandal, which began over a year ago now, would have been even bigger news this week were it not for the ISIS terrorist threat.

A top spokesman for Attorney General Eric Holder made a fatal error on Tuesday: Holder’s spokesman, Brian Fallon, mistakenly called House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s office in search of “some help leaking information about the IRS’s scrutiny of conservative groups."

This devastating revelation is just further proof that nothing about Eric Holder’s Justice Department’s investigation into IRS targeting is legitimate, and, as is the case with this current administration as a whole, partisan politics reign supreme.

Cagle.com: President Obama On The Wrong Side Of History

President Obama and his administration are fond of bragging that they believe themselves to be on the “right side of history.”

Strangely, what Obama seems to think the right side of history is and what actual history proves, are two very different things. Time and again, in his quest to be on the right side of history, Obama has come down on the wrong side of human liberty and dignity.

“I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history,”he said at a February 4, 2011 press conference.

Citizens United Vote Alert On The Udall Amendment Against Citizens United

Citizens United urges all U.S. Senators to oppose S.J. Res. 19, a proposed constitutional amendment by Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico, as well as any other attempts to limit the free speech of American citizens.

Vote Alert- SJ. RES. 19 by CitizensUnited

Breitbart: Harry Reid's Senate Is Focused On Citizens United While The World Is Burning

It has been a long, hot summer here in America and abroad. ISIS is on the march and has brutally beheaded two American journalists. The threat is so large that you even have liberal United States Senators like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Al Franken (D-MN) openly questioning President Barack Obama’s foreign policy.

The last time the threat to the homeland was this grave was in the aftermath of September 11th. So, what is first on the policy agenda for the United States Senate after a month-long recess? Developing a response to ISIS? Or even a policy on the Russian advances in the Ukraine? No! Reid has his sights on gutting the First Amendment and overturning the landmark Citizens United Supreme Court decision.

This folly known as S.J. Res. 19, introduced by Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), is just another example of how out-of-touch the Democrat-controlled United States Senate is and why Congress, according to the Real Clear Politics average, is at nearly a 80 percent disapproval rating. Harry Reid and the Democrat Caucus that he leads are completely consumed by a political agenda that attacks Citizens United. Why? Because the Citizens United decision gives a powerful voice to the opposition and makes it easier to participate in the process -- a scary thought for liberal incumbents.

Breitbart: Free Speech Is Winning, Thanks To Citizens United

In the nearly five years since Citizens United v. FEC was decided, more Americans than ever are exercising their First Amendment rights and engaging in political speech. The results are in: political speech and spending are up. While spending is up across the board, the real winners have been Republican candidates for office.

A new study, “The Business of American Democracy: Citizens United, Independent Spending and Elections,” analyzes state legislative elections that have occurred since the decision and finds that "Citizens United v. FEC was associated with a six percentage-point increase in the likelihood that a Republican candidate would win a state legislative race."

Democrats have been slow to exercise the rights that were restored by Citizens United, while Republicans have embraced the decision and rallied to support candidates they believe in.

Cagle: Common Core On A Downward Spiral

The more people learn about Common Core, the more they learn they don’t like it. Support for Common Core standards is now at an all-time low, according to a new poll highlighted in U.S. News and World Report which stated, “One year ago, two-thirds of those surveyed said they hadn’t heard of the standards. Now, more than three-quarters have heard about Common Core, and it appears that many don’t like what they’ve heard. Sixty percent of those surveyed said they oppose the standards.”

This new poll also revealed that forty percent of teachers oppose Common Core standards, that number was thirteen percent just last year. Support for Common Core has cratered among educators, dropping from seventy-six percent last year to thirteen percent this year. The pressure put on teachers to marry these standards with standardized testing and the trend of teaching to the test is getting to educators, and they are ready for more freedom to teach lessons without stringent standards like those in Common Core.

As a nation we can use this experience to learn and grow, or we can continue in the same line of thinking we have been for the past couple of decades that has us ranking below average internationally in math, science and reading. It’s high time we let the individual states focus on the needs of their students based on their counties and communities. The states and their governors, mayors and parents know the needs of their students and children better than the federal government.

President Obama and the James Foley Murder

The barbaric murder of American journalist James Foley by the radical Islamic caliphate Islamic State this week is a prime example of how President Obama just does not understand the world in which we live.

Back in January, President Obama spoke of Islamic State to the New Yorker: The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.

That is the President of the United States and the Commander-in-Chief equating a terrorist army to a basketball team… really? Is that the dialogue President Obama wants to use to describe Islamic State? No wonder why our enemies across the globe do not take President Obama seriously. His callousness in calling Islamic State “jayvee” is just another illustration of President Obama not understanding what it means to be the president of the United States.
