I don’t like trans fat. I think it is unhealthy and should be avoided. I am glad that companies have been abandoning it and soon will stop using it.
But I’m not deluded enough to think that the Food and Drug Administration is my friend. And I don’t think having a dictator of food safety for over three hundred million people is a path to safety.
Yet that is what our media takes for granted. The Politico headline is typical: “It’s official: Obama axes trans fat.” The words sound as Read more [...]

The latest outrage comes to us from Huntsville, Alabama – which is supposed to be a haven of conservatism, no? A Deep South state with deep south limited government Read more [...]
Radio host Rush Limbaugh says Pope Francis is “scary” and “a little out there” in his call to demonstrate “genuine faith” by opening their wallets even more to the poor.
“A man of religion, the vicar of Christ, seems to have fallen in with the communist way of doing things,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Wednesday, “controlling mankind through command-and-control governments backed by police or military power. This is what the pope is essentially calling for. The problem Read more [...]

Hillary Clinton reportedly charged a Boys and Girls Club chapter $200,000 for an appearance, then left the premise without saying hello to children who benefit from the program.
The massive fee, which she donated back to her family foundation, was the largest the Long Beach, California, organization had ever paid a public figure for a speech, Politico reports.
By contrast, the club made $106,000 off the lunchtime, charity event - its lowest yield in 25 years. A contributing factor to the diminished Read more [...]
Members of P.E.T.A. (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have successfully lobbied to outlaw outdoor barbeques within city limits and suburbs of Portland, Oregon. The ban was based on a P.E.T.A. claim that the smell of cooking flesh is highly offensive and no one should be forced to endure the fumes from what they call "a crime worse than the Holocaust."
Under the new law, individuals caught cooking meat outdoors can face a $2,000 fine or one day in jail.
Shortly after the ruling Read more [...]

Dolezal, The Blaze added, had married a black man and at one time claimed to have biracial parents. As we reported earlier Sunday, Read more [...]

The Obama administration has now given an invitation to jihadists to join military forces in the Middle East to be trained by US troops so that they can learn how to fight against Bashar al-Assad. Middle East analyst Robert Olson reports on the story:
Consequences of the U.S.-Gulf Cooperation Council summit at Camp David last month already seem to be falling into place, with significant geopolitical consequences regarding the civil wars in Syria and Iraq.
The first result seems to be that the Read more [...]
To people like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg and a variety of other liberals, people walking around armed is a supposedly dangerous situation. However, what these liberal whack-jobs refuse to disclose is that while they seek disarmament for the rest of society, they happily enjoy the safety that comes from being surrounded by a team of men with guns- which is what makes Bill Clinton’s recent comments so enraging:
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former President Bill Read more [...]
Based on a Google translation of the document, here's what you need to know about what the draft says.

Republican leaders in the U.S. House have come up with a strategy to revive a bill giving President Obama far-reaching powers to negotiate massive trade deals after Congress halted the legislation but didn’t kill it.
Sources tell WND the plan essentially is to tell Democrats leaders it’s their problem and, if that doesn’t work, try to hammer out a compromise.
Indeed, the White House confirmed that House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Obama spoke on the phone Monday to discuss Read more [...]
