Five years in, pizza chains

Five years ago, we discovered one of those hidden items in ObamaCare that Nancy Pelosi promised we’d only see after the bill got passed — and she was correct. The bill included a federal mandate for restaurants with 20 or more locations to post calorie counts on menu items, even though research since passage of ObamaCare suggest that calorie counts on menus don’t change consumer behavior at all. It does change the overhead for restaurants and their ability to expand and change their menu offerings, and nowhere is that problem greater than in the pizza industry. Dylan Scott reports for

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl slept on his bed frame, and then the concrete floor, collected contact information, and talked about becoming a mercenary in what his squad mates now describe as behavior that laid the groundwork for his disappearance in Afghanistan nearly six years ago. "I asked him, ´Why are you sleeping on the frame of your bed?´" former Sgt. Matt Vierkant recalled in a recent interview with Fox News. "I was like well, that´s weird. and then I remember coming back - - I don’t know if it was a week later, a couple days, and he had quit doing that

Beijing- China wants greater cooperation with other nations in space, particularly the United States, the country´s most experienced astronaut has told CNN in an exclusive interview. Fifteen nations including the United States, Russia and Japan cooperate on International Space Station missions, but China´s involvement has always been a non-starter because of longstanding resistance from U.S. legislators. "As an astronaut, I have a strong desire to fly with astronauts from other countries. I also look forward to going to the International Space Station," Commander Nie Haisheng told CNN.

When Jim Thigpen first met with an investor in early 2012 to discuss selling control of the Tennessee financial firm he had run for more than 20 years, he said W. Wesley Drummon boasted of a business plan that involved $2 billion from the Bank of China. Nothing was said about running a loan program for Atlantic City. But as Drummon negotiated with Thigpen to purchase the Tennessee Business and Industrial Development Corp., Drummon was working with former Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford to get $3 million from the city to launch a community loan program. Most of that money — not

HOUSTON — Officials are closely monitoring the levels of rivers in Texas engorged by the deluge of last weekend. The Colorado River in Wharton and the Brazos and San Jacinto Rivers near Houston are the focus of attention for officials as floodwaters from North and Central Texas move downstream toward the Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, the death toll continues to rise as search teams dig through debris piles along rivers that raged through Central Texas and the Houston area. Bodies found in Hays and Blanco counties raised the confirmed death toll Thursday to at least 24, with 20 in Texas alone, and

Michelle Obama and her crusade against unhealthy food appears have a new target in its sights - s´mores. Her officially endorsed MyPlate Twitter account is proposing a makeover for the classic American summer campfire treat by replacing the indulgent chocolate and marshmallow with Strawberry and yogurt - low fat of course. Appalled, social media was up in arms at the very suggestion that s´mores could ever be tampered with and angry commenters let fly at the health conscious First Lady.

ohn Watson, chairman and CEO of Chevron Corp. (NYSE:CVX), the third-largest oil and gas company in the U.S., was in Washington, D.C., last week to meet with policy leaders. He also made himself available to discuss energy issues confronting his company. IBD: Is the low price of oil a new normal for the United States? Watson: It´s clear that when oil and gas fell (to $40 a barrel earlier this year), that wasn´t a sustainable world price based on global supplies. Only a few producers can make money at that price, so when the price fell to that level, marginal producers dropped

Accountability: After encouraging rioters to lay waste to Baltimore, the city´s mayor now says she´s confident she can get Uncle Sam to pay for the damage. What is this, the new age of federally financed riots? One month after the race riots that trashed Baltimore, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said that the city would apply for a $20 million Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant to replenish the "rainy day fund" being used to pay for cleanup and police overtime costs in the wake of the mayhem that she herself is on record as encouraging.

Insisting Lois G. Lerner is still a target, congressional Republicans sent a letter to new Attorney General Loretta Lynch Thursday asking her to follow through on their official request last year for a criminal investigation into Ms. Lerner’s behavior at the IRS. Led by Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Republicans said it’s been more than a year and the Justice Department has yet to respond to the referral the committee approved on April 9, 2014, listing three areas where lawmakers believe Ms. Lerner may have broken the law. “The committee continues to believe

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has the power to end the famed Iowa presidential straw poll before it begins on Aug. 8 — and is thinking of doing just that, The Washington Times has learned. Also poised to skip the event is Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who enjoys significant support from Iowa supporters of his father, Ron Paul, the former Texas congressman who missed first place in the poll by only 152 votes in 2011, Republicans involved told The Times. The same is true for Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, considered a potential magnet for Hispanic voters and who, like Mr.

President Obama on Thursday linked hurricanes and other extreme weather events to climate change — the latest move by this White House to keep the issue at the forefront of domestic politics while also pursuing a landmark international agreement to save the planet. After touring the National Hurricane Center in Miami, the president defended his controversial plan to combat climate change, which centers on new restrictions on power-plant emissions, increased auto fuel efficiency standards and a host of other steps. Global warming increasingly is a centerpiece of Mr. Obama’s agenda during his final two years in office.

Venezuela´s inflation rate is over 500%

Venezuela’s bolivar is collapsing. And as night follows day, Venezuela’s annual implied inflation rate is soaring. Last week, the annual inflation rate broke through the 500% level. It now stands at 510%. When inflation rates are elevated, standard economic theory and reliable empirical techniques allow us to produce accurate inflation estimates. With free market exchange-rate data (usually black-market data), the inflation rate can be calculated. The principle of purchasing power parity (PPP), which links changes in exchange rates and changes in prices, allows for a reliable inflation estimate.

Texans whose cities have been deluged by torrential flood waters have another problem to contend with - a tide of more than one thousand snakes seeking shelter in their homes. Panicked residents of the Lone Star State, as well as those in Oklahoma, which has also been swamped by the floods, have been finding the reptiles slithering into their houses in a bid to escape the rising waters. Species including the rat snake - which can grow up to six feet long - have been found inside homes, nestled in the wheels of cars and hiding on patios. The onslaught of snakes has led to a spike in calls for rescue services to shift them out,

In his defense, the odds that an avowed socialist writing in the early 1970s might have been high when formulating his opinions have to be north of 90 percent. According to various psychological surveys conducted over the past 40 years, somewhere between 31 and 57 percent of women confess to having rape fantasies, with the true number doubtless higher given the reluctance of some to admit that they’ve had thoughts like that. A survey published last year claimed that 29 percent of women had fantasized about being forced to have sex while 60 percent of men had fantasized about “dominating” someone

Any breaking story involving scandal among the powerful inevitably entails other recognizable names, either as victim, confederate or kibitzer. Headlines in the last few days have been dominated by the arrest of top ranking members of FIFA, an acronym for a sports association that stands for the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. It controls the revenues which flow out of soccer football and has known cash reserves of $1.4 billion dollars, which — or so investigators allege — represent only a fraction of the actual moneys that the association deals with.

Obama administration attorneys urged a federal judge Thursday to throw out a politically charged lawsuit by House Republicans over the president´s health care law, but encountered plenty of skeptical questions. ´You don´t really believe that, do you?´ U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer interrupted Justice Department attorney Joel McElvain to ask in the opening moments of his argument, as he tried to assert that the House hadn´t suffered a particular injury in the case and therefore lacks any basis for suing. ´I have a very hard time taking that statement seriously,´ Collyer said.

If you’re a Republican planning to run in 2016, you’re going to be asked about Iraq — and you’re expected to say it was mistake. While it is legitimate to ask members of the party chiefly responsible for a military venture that cost hundreds of billions of dollars and over 4,000 American lives whether they would do it again, there’s another failed foreign intervention that’s getting conveniently overlooked this election cycle — even though one of its architects is running for president. That adventure, of course, is the U.S.’s 2011 foray into Libya. Remember that? You know, it was apart of

The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a report published today by the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam). By executive order last summer, President Obama amended the Johnson-era federal order on non-discrimination in hiring by federal contractors to include non-discrimination based on “sexual orientation and gender identity.” That order has roiled faith-based groups. A confidential source tells C-Fam that the White House has directed federal agencies to include “sexual orientation and gender identity” as

Chris Matthews has already scripted his dream scenario for the post-convention portion of the 2016 presidential race. Hillary Clinton is up 5 to 10 points in the polls and she selects, as a gracious move to prove she´s about bringing all Americans together, Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) as her running mate. Matthews offered this gem somewhat out of the blue during a segment on the May 28 edition of Hardball, after discussing the interesting dynamic that would ensue if the libertarian and dovish Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ended up the GOP nominee facing off against Clinton. Here´s the relevant transcript:

During a live interview with Carly Fiorina on Wednesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted over the Republican presidential candidate’s attacks on Hillary Clinton: “You were really the breakout star according to all reports from Iowa last weekend, the biggest crowds, especially when you went after Hillary Clinton. Is that because you’re the only woman in the Republican field, that you feel enabled to go after her?” Fiorina explained: “I think when 82% of the American people now believe that there is a professional political class more interested in preserving its own power and privilege than it is in serving the American

Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard who has an 0-1 record running for elective office, is running for President of the United States as a non-politician. (Snip) In a sit-down interview on Tuesday, Fiorina was impressive even by the standards of Union Leader editorial interviews. Most candidates, seasoned or not, struggle to stay on message. The temptation to stray, to elaborate, to explain is too great. To overcome the impulse, they memorize talking points, after which they sound robotic... then they stray. Not Fiorina. Her ability to stay on message without repeating the same worn talking point four times is

Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby’s high-profile prosecution against the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray may have devolved into what could arguably be described as a three-ring circus, but she and her husband, city councilman Nick Mosby, are literally going to be guest ringmasters in a traveling black circus that is visiting Baltimore this weekend. Via The Root: This comes on the heels of Marilyn Mosby’s appearance onstage with music legend Prince for his #Rally4Peace concert, which drew criticism a few weeks ago. She is also being accused of bias by pro-law-enforcement critics for her close ties to the

President Obama’s administration on Wednesday claimed dominion over all of America’s streams, creeks, rills, ditches, brooks, rivulets, burns, tributaries, criks, wetlands — perhaps even puddles — in a sweeping move to assert unilateral federal authority. The Environmental Protection Agency, along with the Army Corps of Engineers, says it has the authority to control all waterways within the United States — and will exercise that authority. “We’re finalizing a clean water rule to protect the streams and the wetlands that one in three Americans rely on for drinking water. And we’re doing that without creating any new permitting requirements and maintaining all previous
