The great American novelist Stephen King has been given a bunch of free press because Governor Paul LePage thought he had left Maine to escape taxes. LePage wants to change the tax structure in Maine and argues that his changes will attract more people to the state. But using Stephen King as an example of tax migration was a big mistake—not just a factual mistake but a public relations disaster.
According to the Portland Press Herald, King wants LePage to “man up and apologize.”

Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, Read more [...]

The Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is forcing many rural hospitals to close – just like it was meant to do, according to the former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
“I think that’s what the ACA was really designed to bring about,” said Dr. Lee Hieb. “You can say it’s an unintended consequence. I’m not sure; I think it’s an intended consequence.”
Forty-eight rural hospitals have closed since 2010 and 283 others are in danger Read more [...]
Thanks go to the Daily Mail for posting the video, under the headline, “Moment rape survivor stood up in Maryland state Senate hearing to demand the right to carry a concealed weapon.”
Jacqueline Kahn was speaking in support of a measure that would allow residents in Maryland to carry concealed weapons for self-defense.
The state is currently one of just a handful in the nation that doesn’t allow residents to carry firearms on the basis of protection alone.
Kahn was raped because she Read more [...]
As children, many of us enjoyed the Lewis Carroll tale of Alice in Wonderland. We loved the talking animals, which made no real sense. Everyone loves the Cheshire Cat and his circular logic. Yet, it is not half as fun when the Cat is played by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. He would have us to believe that up is down.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday talks with Iran on curbing its nuclear program have made "genuine progress" and it was time to make "hard Read more [...]
On Wednesday Senator Dick Durbin, a liberal Illinois Democrat and the 2nd in command among the Democrat leadership, spent some time deriding the GOP and insinuating that they were racists. Durbin was complaining about how long Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to Attorney General, had been waiting around to be confirmed when he threw a rhetorical grenade at the GOP. While excoriating the GOP for not holding a vote to confirm Lynch sooner (something we’ll talk about), Durbin likened Lynch’s Read more [...]
Megyn Kelly’s been keeping them honest in Washington for a while now, but few could have predicted this huge of an admission from President Barack Obama’s perfidious State Department at her behest.
According to State Department officials who spoke on Tuesday, the department cannot find any record of Hillary Clinton’s OF-109 exit form.
The admission comes after a Freedom of Information Act request by Kelly that sought to determine whether the former secretary of state had signed the required Read more [...]
The chairman of a House committee investigating the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi formally requested Friday that Hillary Rodham Clinton turn over her email server for an independent review.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sent a letter requesting that Clinton, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, turn over to the State Department inspector general or other third party the server she used for official business while serving as secretary of state. The aim would be to have a third party determine Read more [...]
As I write this, I have no idea what Israel’s election results will be — but I do know my desired result. There is much evidence that the Obama administration had worked to secure a defeat for Prime Minister Netanyahu — of course the progressive socialists will deny and dismiss it as they always do.
However, there is another critical indicator that President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry wish to have an accommodating left-leaning person in Israel to enable their policy scheme.

A CNN panel on Thursday night became very heated as panel members argued over the recent Department of Justice (DOJ) report which said that Michael Brown never raised his hands to submit to Officer Wilson. The report casts a dark shadow on protesters who have routinely attacked police, investigators and anyone wondering if there was a rush to judge Officer Wilson guilty of a crime. The now popular “Hand’s Up, Don’t Shoot” chant and protests have been proven to be based on a lie propagated Read more [...]
Leave it to the EPA to decide how long is “too long” for a person to take a shower. Unless you’re one of those people who takes a shower once a month whether you need to or not, the EPA thinks you should cut down your shower time by at least a minute. Apparently, this is such a big deal that they’ve done studies to find out how long the average shower is. It’s 8.2 minutes. So, they don’t want anyone taking any showers longer than 7 minutes. Any longer, and you’d be wasting water.
The Read more [...]
