” In the age of federally mandated Common Core curriculum and widespread evidence of leftist indoctrination, it is not surprising a growing number of American families are exploring educational options other than public school. As parents try to protect their children from the propagandistic government system, however, the government is in turn seeking vengeance against them.
Nowhere was this disturbing trend more evident than in the recent removal of seven children from a Texas couple dedicated to homeschooling them. While Child Protective Services initially became involved in the case involving Trevor and Christina Tutt after two of the children wandered a short distance from home, a case worker subsequently indicated that “[t]here is no problem here.”
The same employee, however, subsequently made a highly subjective accusation against the couple.
“ Nobody in their right mind would…

How to boost the poor out of the “poverty trap?” Stop letting the government keep them there, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), says.
In comments today at the Brookings Institution’s Social Mobility Summit, Ryan outlined why the War on Poverty, launched 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson,“missed the mark.”
“Poverty is not just some form of deprivation, it is a form of isolation,” Ryan said. The poor are cut off from education, work and family, a divide he largely attributed to broken government programs created by the War on Poverty.http://blog.heritage.org/2014/01/13/paul-ryan-government-traps-poor/
Islamic terrorists attacked the US embassy in Benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and machine gun fire on 9-11- 2012 killing four Americans including the US ambassador.
Leader: Sufyan Ben Qumu, who has known extremist ties, became one of the top commanders of rebel forces in Benghazi. Sufyan Ben Qumu, who was reportedly once Osama bin Laden’s driver, was let out of the US military detention center in Cuba in 2007 and turned over to the government of Muammar Gaddafi on the condition he be kept behind bars.

The Obama State Department finally admitted the Benghazi killers were al-Qaeda linked terrorists today — which undermines their claims for the past year that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to an offensive video.
Barack Obama knew the Benghazi assault was a terrorist attack just minutes after Islamists stormed the consulate on 9-11, 2012.

End Welfare for the Rich
Editor’s Note: Tom A. Coburn is a Republican senator from Oklahoma.
(CNN) – The debate in Congress this week about whether to pay for extending the payroll tax cut by imposing a new tax on millionaires will have nothing to do with solving our nation’s economic challenges and everything to do with election-year politics. Senate Democratic leaders have already signaled they will use the debate as a purely partisan exercise designed to embarrass Republicans into opposing tax cuts for the poor while defending tax cuts for the rich.
I intend to offer an alternative. Instead of punishing the rich with higher taxes, I will give Congress the option of helping pay for extending the payroll tax cut by ending welfare to the wealthy.

Every year, politicians on both sides engage in a process of reverse…

A four-year-old boy who died on a “shambolic” hospital ward was so neglected that he resorted to sucking moisture out of wet wipes, his parents told an inquest today.
Sean Turner excitedly told friends that doctors were going to “mend his heart” when he underwent complex surgery to correct heart problems he was born with.
But after the operation he was moved out of intensive care too soon because his bed was needed for other patients, his parents told the inquest.
