An IRS employee was suspended for 100 days for using his job at the agency’s help line to try to convince callers to vote for President Obama, a government watchdog agency announced Thursday. The employee, whose name wasn’t mentioned in the announcement from the Office of Special Counsel, admitted to using his job for political purposes and agreed to the settlement that involved a 100-day suspension. “OSC’s complaint alleged that, when fielding taxpayers’ questions on an IRS customer service help line, the employee repeatedly urged taxpayers to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by delivering a chant based on the spelling of the

Germany orders US intelligence
chief out of country

Germany’s federal government has ordered the US intelligence station chief at the Berlin embassy to leave the country - before he is expelled - after a second double agent was uncovered inside the German government. Investigators in Berlin have interviewed a man working for the defence ministry on suspicion of co-operation with US intelligence - a week after an officer in the BND foreign intelligence service said he had sold classified files to the CIA. German officials have now upped the ante in the spy affair to demonstrate their frustration at perceived stone-walling by Washington. A year after the first revelations by

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States. Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be

The Chilean government released a report about two high-quality photos it believes could indicate a close encounter. The particular incident under investigation occurred at the remote Collahuasi copper mine in Chile’s Atacama Desert back in April 2013, when four technicians working at the mine witnessed a disc-shaped object approach the area slowly, hover for about an hour over the mine before finally heading off to the east. The Committee for the Studies of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (known by its Spanish acronym, CEFAA), is responsible for investigating any unexplained aerial phenomena within Chilean air space.

Remember when President Obama made that surprise appearance in the web series Between Two Ferns? Well, funny story. The Emmy nominations were announced today and… yep, you guessed it. The Obama video got a nomination. The video received an Emmy nod for Outstanding Short-Form Live-Action Entertainment Program, up against the Adult Swim show Childrens Hospital, a digital short for the NBC show Parks & Recreation, The Soup (for its True Detective parody), and this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show (featuring Bruno Mars). You may recall that the Between Two Ferns video inspired much outrage within the conservative media, especially with Bill O’Reilly

America´s Energy Nightmare

What do we need to turn our country around? Well, for starters, we need a president who stops getting his energy policies from Hollywood movies — and Hollywood liberals. Consider President Obama’s dithering when it comes to approving the Keystone XL pipeline. First proposed in 2008, this massive infrastructure project would bring low-cost crude oil from fields in Canada southward to the United States. Despite nearly six years of government reviews — and nearly four dozen oil and gas pipelines already safely operating between the U.S. and Canada — the Obama administration and the State Department still have not approved the

BEIJING—U.S. officials said they had eased relations with China during two days of talks on issues ranging from cybersecurity to foreign currency, but they forged few major deals, suggesting wide gaps remain between the world´s two biggest economies on issues of global significance. Secretary of State John Kerry said the annual talks, known as the Strategic & Economic Dialogue, showed "the U.S. and China are committed to a new model of relations based on practical cooperation, but also constructive management of differences." That was a theme echoed by Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and by Chinese officials. The good vibes even

Chinese hackers broke into the computer networks of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management earlier this year with the intention of accessing the files of tens of thousands of federal employees who had applied for top-secret security clearances, according to The New York Times. Senior U.S. officials say the hackers gained access to some of the agency´s databases in March before the threat was detected and blocked, the Times reported in an article posted on its website Wednesday night. How far the hackers penetrated the agency´s systems was not yet clear, the newspaper said. Accusations of hacking by China and

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated the administration isn’t particularly concerned with the uranium seized by ISIS terrorists in Iraq, saying the “old chemicals” aren’t weaponized. Reuters obtained a letter written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on July 8 from Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim, in which the envoy asks the world body for help to “stave off the threat” of the use of the 88 pounds of uranium compounds from the University of Mosul by terrorists. “Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote,

Supporters of reserve Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi had hoped that Wednesday’s closed evidentiary hearing would result in the judge sending him back to the United States, but the Mexican ordered that he be returned to prison until an Aug. 4 hearing. Tahmooressi, who served two combat tours in Afghanistan, was arrested at the San Ysidro border crossing the night of March 31 and is currently being held in the El Hongo II prison in Tecate, Mexico, for bringing guns into the country. Tahmooressi reportedly had a rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, a .45-caliber pistol and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in

IUD may carry higher risk for
breast cancer in certain women

Modern contraceptives have radically changed women´s lives, but they are not risk free. A new study out of the journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology finds the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) or progesterone-releasing IUD, may be associated with a higher than expected incidence of breast cancer. (snip) "It´s a great reminder that we need to weigh the benefits of some of these methods against the risks," said Dr. Angela Marshall, director of Comprehensive Women´s Health in Silver Spring, Maryland. "We need to educate our patients, because many of these therapies may work, but some could have serious side effects. Women need

On Wednesday´s Hannity on Fox News, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin said that formera Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was "exactly right" in her call for impeachment. Levin, who was the chief of staff to Attorney General Ed Meese in Ronald Reagan´s administration, said that if America is a "functioning Constitutional republic" with a President who "violates the separation of powers" and thumbs his nose at the court system and says he´s going to do more of it... she´s exactly right." "This would be an open and shut case," he said. "She stands with the framers." He also blasted House Speaker

The most dishonest Obama

At a press conference last night, President Obama placed the blame for the border crisis on Republicans, saying that because they are trying to block his $3.8 billion supplemental appropriation, they are responsible for the mess. He further stated that passage of his immigration reform bill would solve the border crisis for 20 years. Daily Caller: The Republican Party, but not the White House, has the power to block the flood of at least 100,000 migrants from Central America, President Barack Obama repeatedly told the nation in a Wednesday night press conference. “Are folks more interested in politics, or are they more interested in

Many on the Left didn’t want any exemptions to the contraceptive mandate, even for purely sectarian groups. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, among others, considered that narrow exemption “itself a compromise.” The secularist central planners of Obamacare wanted total participation by all employers. They just couldn’t get away with it politically. So, naturally, they treat any objections from the religious to supposedly generous modifications of the mandate with the greatest impatience. That impatience was on display in Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent from the Supreme Court’s recent granting of a temporary reprieve to Wheaton College as its challenge to mandate-related regulations continues. Sotomayor felt

LAKELAND, Fla. - A man convicted of the 1994 rape and killing of an 11-year-old Lakeland girl is set to be executed Thursday with the victim´s grandmother watching from the witness chamber on behalf of the child and her deceased mother. Eddie Wayne Davis, 45, is scheduled to receive a three-drug injection at 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison for his 1995 conviction on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Waters, whose mother had briefly dated Davis. It would be the sixth execution in Florida this year and the second in the state since the death

Hamas’ Interior Ministry has ordered residents of the Gaza Strip to remain in their houses if they are about to be bombed by the Israelis, a move that effectively turns citizens into human shields and is intentionally meant to boost the casualty rate, according to a copy of the order published by Hamas. Israel warns Gaza residents of air strikes before they take place so innocent civilians have time to flee and seek shelter. The latest Hamas order that citizens ignore Israel’s warnings and stay put is a clear effort by the terror group to increase the death count and apply pressure

Scholarly journal retracts 60 articles,

Every now and then a scholarly journal retracts an article because of errors or outright fraud. In academic circles, and sometimes beyond, each retraction is a big deal. Now comes word of a journal retracting 60 articles at once. The reason for the mass retraction is mind-blowing: A “peer review and citation ring” was apparently rigging the review process to get articles published. You’ve heard of prostitution rings, gambling rings and extortion rings. Now there’s a “peer review ring.” The publication is the Journal of Vibration and Control (JVC). It publishes papers with names like “Hydraulic enginge mounts: a survey” and

President Obama visited Denver this week, was offered marijuana, and laughed. His administration made possible the open marketing and use of marijuana in Colorado and Washington state by directing that federal law not be enforced. The president is joined by Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul in supporting marijuana legalization. As Clinton recently told CNN, "On recreational marijuana, states are the laboratories of democracy. We (are) experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is.” There is no indication that Obama is really paying attention to what he has done in Colorado.

A source told Breitbart Texas that an illegal immigrant from Guatemala is currently being treated for active tuberculosis (TB) at the University Medical Center (UMC) of El Paso. Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet--a preventive medicine physician and former Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS)--has practices in Arizona and Texas. Vliet claimed that one of her patients, whose name can not be disclosed for confidentiality reasons, called her with fears that the TB-positive immigrant was putting other lives at risk.

  



22 times President Obama was
definitely interested in a photo-op

President Obama said in a press conference Wednesday that he had not inspected the crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico because his presence would be little more than “political theater.” “This isn´t theater. This is a problem,” Obama told reporters in Dallas. “I´m not interested in photo ops. I´m interested in solving a problem." Unsurprisingly, the president’s claim that he’s not interested in photo-ops was met with titters, guffaws and outright mockery — because he is most definitely a fan of photo-ops. No, really. That´s pretty much all he does. And although many social media users have already dredged up

Secretary of State John Kerry hopes he has found a partner to take to the climate-change dance, and her name is China. Kerry is in Beijing for the United States-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, a bilateral series of negotiations that involve top-ranking officials from both countries. The two countries struck deals on eight climate-change projects this week, and China agreed to set more stringent emissions standards for vehicles and greenhouse gases. "This effort has to be mutual," Kerry said Thursday. "It’s not about one country making a demand of the other. It’s the science itself demanding action from all of

A Northern Virginia county at the center of the early fights over illegal immigration on Tuesday approved pursuing the Department of Homeland Security for information about what it did with the 7,000 illegals arrested in the county since 2008. The Prince William County Board of County Supervisors on Tuesday approved the filing of a Freedom of Information Act request to force the agency to disclose whether illegal immigrants arrested and sent to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been deported, detained or released.

After more than a week of protests by local residents in Murrieta against transfers of illegal aliens caught in Texas to a local U.S. Border Patrol facility, the federal government has called off future transfers to the area--for now. Late Wednesday, local Fox affiliate KSWB reported that a fourth planeload of illegal aliens--many of them unaccompanied minors--scheduled for Thursday had been canceled, and no future flights would be scheduled. The announcement will be seen as a victory by anti-illegal immigration activists, who kept a vigil near the U.S. Border Patrol site after successfully blocking the first convoy of buses, which
