U.S. Has Cash to Close Memorials, Can’t Afford Enforcing FOIA

The U.S. government can spend money shutting down and barricading memorials around Washington D.C., but it won’t dedicate the necessary resources to obey transparency laws, using the shutdown as an opportunity to ignore the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Mexico Orders Release of Spies Convicted in U.S. Court

The Obama administration has given Mexico enough input and authority over U.S. matters that its lawmakers felt emboldened enough to order the release of four communist spies serving lengthy sentences in federal prison. The Mexican Cámara de Diputados, which is similar to the U.S. House of Representatives, actually passed a…

Syrian Islamist Group Steers U.S. Policy

Alarming evidence has surfaced that indicates a U.S.-based group that advocates for Syria’s rebels is defining and steering policy in the Obama White House and perhaps in Congress as well.

Obama Revives Green Car Loans on Heels of Fisker Bankruptcy

A fly-by-night electric car company recently folded after getting nearly $200 million from the government yet the Obama administration plans to pour more money into the green auto loan program, according to a mainstream news report that acknowledges it’s “controversial.” That’s quite an understatement considering the shady experiment’s history.
