Investor's Business Daily

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover sting operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

|Obamacare: Is a $2,000 deductible 'affordable?'
States are starting to roll out details about the exchanges, providing a look at just how affordable coverage under the Affordable Care Act will be.

The CBO pegs its cost estimates of bills to ten years.

It also obscures the scope of the long-term entitlement crisis and the savings of reforms that would compound in the second and third decade.

The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the penalty they will need to pay the government if they do not buy a mandated health plan. The examples point to families of four and families of five, both of which the IRS expects in its assumptions to pay a minimum of $20,000 per year for a bronze plan.

Islamism accurately indicates an Islamic-flavored version of radical utopianism, an -ism like other -isms, comparable to fascism and communism.

Was the White House involved in the IRS's targeting of conservatives? No investigation needed to answer that one. Of course it was. All he needed to do was exactly what he did do, in full view, for three years: Publicly suggest that conservative political groups were engaged in nefarious deeds; publicly call out by name political opponents whom he'd like to see harassed; and publicly have his party pressure the IRS to take action.

BENGHAZI: It's Not Just Fox News Anymore —
Charges of a Benghazi Cover-Up No Longer ‘Fox-Induced Hysteria’
The emergence of a number of whistleblowers who have come forward to refute the claims made by some members of President Barack Obama's administration relating to the September 11, 2012, attack on an American consulate in Benghazi does not directly implicate the White House in a cover-up.
The New Yorker, Alex Koppelman
The ongoing debate about the attack on the United States facility in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, and the Obama Administration’s response to it, is no exception. For a long time, it seemed like the idea of a coverup was just a Republican obsession. But now there is something to it.

Hillary Clinton – Culpable For Benghazi from Beginning to End
When it first became clear that the CIA's Benghazi talking points had been altered, many of us viewed the White House as the prime suspect. It turns out, however, that the State Department was the prime culprit. Why did State want the talking points changed? Because it had ignored warnings about rising terrorist activity in Libya and had reduced security rather than beefing it up, as our embassy requested.

A source with intimate information about the events that happened on the ground in Benghazi the night the U.S. Consulate and the CIA annex was attacked by terrorists told Breitbart News that, ultimately, only the President of the United States, or someone acting on his authority, could have prevented Special Forces either on the ground or nearby from helping those Americans who were under deadly assault.

There was good reason for surprise. Within 24 hours of the attack, the U.S. government had intercepted communications between two al Qaeda-linked terrorists discussing the attacks in Benghazi.
