The former head of the FDA is accused of using the federal agency to run a massive conspiracy in order to generate millions of dollars in drug company profits for her husband's hedge fund firm – according to the lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
“Global press freedom declined to its lowest point in 12 years in 2015, as political, criminal and terrorist forces sought to co-opt or silence the media in their broader struggle for power,” Freedom of the Press research director Jennifer Dunham wrote.
Many consumers will see large rate increases for the first time Nov. 1 — a week before they go to the polls. The last thing Democrats want to contend with just a week before the 2016 presidential election is an outcry over double-digit insurance hikes as millions of Americans begin signing up for Obamacare. But that looks increasingly likely as health plans socked by Obamacare losses look to regain their financial footing by raising rates.
The GOP establishment’s sour reaction and apparent surprise that Donald Trump’s populist message appeals to huge numbers of Republican voters is a symptom of party leadership that long ago became isolated from the people they claim to represent.
Police are still investigating the crime scene but initial reports suggest the concealed carrier immediately contacted 911 and cooperated with police over the course of the investigation. It sounds like this guy did everything that was within his rights to do and responsibly at that. Best of all, he was able to walk away afterwards. In a defensive gun use situation, that’s the best anyone can hope for.
From beginning to end, in fact, SSA’s process makes no provision whatsoever for the individual to attend a formal hearing before an adjudicative authority, to put forth their own experts, or to cross-examining adverse witnesses. It only involves anonymous bureaucrats reviewing documents in a government-compiled file. That is hardly the process most Americans would consider an adjudication, and certainly not one sufficient to strip someone of fundamental liberties.
President Obama has budgeted $17,613 for each of the estimated 75,000 Central American teens expected to illegally cross into the United States this year, $2,841 more than the average annual Social Security retirement benefit, according to a new report.
I love it: Donald Trump’s campaign reveals the establishment for what it is, a swamp of corruption as fetid as those of Latin America. It is better entertainment than Vaudeville. The frantic scramble to rig the primaries, change the rules, and thwart the voters–anything to defend their cozy entanglement of political tapeworms–makes absurd any pretense of democracy.
Is there any wonder why the “establishment” of “senators, congressmen, and richer constituents throughout the nation” today are so worshipful of Hamilton and so relieved that his mug shot remains on the ten-dollar bill?
This was supposed to be the pragmatic Midwestern state that would deny Donald Trump the delegates he needs to secure the Republican presidential nomination. Yet on the eve of Tuesday’s critical primary, Indiana appeared poised to help the front-runner get closer to locking it up.
A new chart and analysis from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, details the extent to which taxpayers are paying more and more for fewer and fewer deportations.
So now the question is: Who would run with Trump? Would he pick a member of Congress who could help with relationships there? Would he be able to find a Latino to repair damage he has done with that community? Here are a few possibilities being tossed around:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s refusal to discuss even the broad strokes of some of its secret investigative methods, such as implanting malware and tracking cellphones with Stingrays, is backfiring – if the goal is to actually enforce the law.
Last week, Fox News TV legal commentator Andrew Napolitano said the FBI is in the final stages of its investigation into Clinton and her private email server. His sources tell him that “the evidence of her guilt is overwhelming,” and that the FBI has enough evidence to indict and convict.
Political pressure is the first tool we have to change things. And it begins with putting pressure on those who are in power to let them know that your constitutional privileges ought not be infringed by unnecessary and undue delays in paperwork.
Donald Trump continues to make establishment heads explode. The foreign policy prescription he laid out in a speech hosted by The National Interest magazine last week was more Ron Paulian than neocon, and for that it drew ridicule – like everything Trump does – from the Republican establishment, mainstream media talking heads and foreign policy “experts” whose policies, ideas and opinions have the world in flames and edging us closer and closer to all-out World War III.
If you sense that airport security lines are getting longer — much longer — you’re definitely not alone. A combination of fewer Transportation Security Administration screeners, tighter budgets, new checkpoint procedures and growing numbers of passengers has created a mess at airports around the country. In recent weeks, passengers have reported epic lines at T.S.A. checkpoints, causing heartburn and angst, as well as missed flights.
A series of data breaches overseas are spurring concerns that hackers could manipulate elections in the United States. Since December, hundreds of millions of voters in the U.S., the Philippines, Turkey and Mexico have had their data discovered on the web in unprotected form. In some instances, legitimate security researchers found the information, but in others, malicious hackers are suspected of pilfering the data for criminal purposes.
When you consider that non-vaccinating parents are frequently treated as second-class citizens and targeted with misplaced anger about the spread of disease, it is not surprising that this law is being required – as California and other states have stepped up their pro-vaccine rhetoric and used the power of state mandates to pimp for Big Pharma.
In what has become as reliable as clockwork, with the passing of another week comes another Hillary Clinton attack on gun owners. This time, the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination explained to supporters her intent to make an assault on gun rights and NRA one of her top priorities.
Most Americans expect the next great earthquake in the United States to come on the west coast. But what if it strikes right down the middle of the country instead? The New Madrid fault zone is six times larger than the San Andreas fault zone in California and it covers portions of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
In a complete denunciation of modern medicine, the profit-making schemes of health plans and political efforts to make healthcare available to all came to a dead end with a policy-bending report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that shows access to healthcare does not deliver health. The Affordable Care Act does deliver treatment. It does pay doctors and hospitals. But access to health care fails miserably at delivering health.
