The Democrats Try To Shut Their Opponents Up (Cont.)

The Democrats Try To Shut Their Opponents Up (Cont.)

(John Hinderaker) We wrote here about the Democrats’ effort to clamp down on 501(c)(4) organizations–the only entities where Republicans raise more money than Democrats–by requiring such groups to disclose their donors. They have proposed the DISCLOSE Act, which would require such disclosure of 501(c)(4)s, but not of 501(c)(3)s–where the Left is strong–or unions. In the linked post, I wrote about the fact that a hearing on the DISCLOSE Act was scheduled today before the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. The scheduled witnesses included Heather Gerken and Dan Tokaji, both of whom are members of…

Was Lois Lerner Transferred to the FAA?

Was Lois Lerner Transferred to the FAA?

(Steven Hayward) It is quite clear that Lois Lerner was the designated political hit-person for Obama at the IRS, targeting Obama’s political opponents. ? Could she have been transferred to the Federal Aviation Administration and no one was told? The question arises from the peculiar decision of the FAA to prohibit American air carriers from flying to Israel, now extended to a second day, despite there being no new incidents of rockets falling near the Ben Gurion airport. ? Shouldn’t the decision about whether to fly to Israel be left to the individual air…

Shocker: GAO sting reveals Obamacare fraud

Shocker:  GAO sting reveals Obamacare fraud

(Paul Mirengoff) The National Journal reports on a sting operation conducted by the Government Accounting Office to test the strength of Obamacare’s eligibility-verification system. To no one’s surprise, the verification system failed the test. Fake applicants were able to get subsidized insurance coverage in 11 of 18 attempts. The total amount of the subsidies for the 11 approved applications was about $2,500 per month. The investigators created fake identities by inventing Social Security numbers, income, and citizenship, and by counterfeiting documents. Eleven of 12 fake online or telephone applications were approved. The only exception occurred when the investigator refused to provide a Social Security number. Apparently the laxity of the telephone …

How Obama is saving the DNC money on his fundraising trips — at your expense

How Obama is saving the DNC money on his fundraising trips — at your expense

During President Obama’s West Coast fundraising swing this week, he’ll squeeze in an official speech about job training at a community college between multimillion-dollar fundraisers in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles to benefit House and Senate Democrats’ re-elections this fall.

Is Hillary Clinton washed up?

Is Hillary Clinton washed up?

(Paul Mirengoff) Robert Merry is a veteran Washington journalist. John and I had lunch with him once when he was in charge of Congressional Quarterly. It was a pleasant encounter, though he seemed disappointed and perhaps a little bit put off by our support for the war in Iraq. Merry is also a historian and a scholar of the presidency. He wrote a rather good biography of James Polk and a flawed but worthwhile attempt to rate America’s presidents…

HBO, Beyond the Pale

HBO, Beyond the Pale

(John Hinderaker) HBO has done some good things, like Rome and Game of Thrones. But this is one of the most appalling things I have seen in a long time. There is an HBO program called “True Blood” that apparently is about vampires–way to be cutting edge, right? In its most recent episode, it featured a Ted Cruz fundraiser at the George W. Bush presidential library. In the clip below, you can see the characters discussing the fact that only “assholes” are…
