Again, we’ve known this for a long time. The left has never proven liberal groups were targeted too. Nonetheless, it’s another nail in the coffin, and further, independent, proof of a conspiracy.
Embattled former IRS official Lois Lerner is on two different hot seats this week, as a pair of Republican-led congressional committees aim to prosecute her for her role in a scheme to target conservative groups in the middle of an election campaign season.
Research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that gamers grow more aggressive the more they failed or were frustrated by the challenges presented, regardless of the type or genre of the game played.

And so are the other dinks out there saying violent video games lead to violent behavior. There is, literally, no evidence of such.

He’s one of the best basketball players in the country, and he led his team to victory in Monday night’s NCAA championship game. But the University of Connecticut’s Shabazz Napier recently told reporters he sometimes goes to bed “starving” because he can’t afford food, despite that UConn’s student-athlete guidelines include provisions for meal plans.
The liberal blogsite Uncrunched revealed Monday that OkCupid’s co-founder and current CEO Sam Yagan donated $500 to Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah) in 2004. Pointing to Cannon’s ultra-conservative voting record, the author of the piece claims that Cannon has a “special kind of hate for gays” and received a 0% rating by the Human Rights Campaign on his support of gay rights and abortion, both of which he consistently voted against.
On a radio talk show, Nemko clearly and forcefully debunked that ultimate myth – that women make less than men – by explaining why, when you compare apples to apples, it simply isn’t true. Even the White House report: Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being explains why. Simply put, men choose higher-paying jobs.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney doesn’t like when you apply the same logic governing wages in private businesses to his employer’s own payroll. As President Obama prepares to sign an executive order addressing the gender gap in federal contractors’ wages, critics have pointed out that female White House staffers make an average of 88 cents for every dollar male staffers earn.
Using the 2011 annual report of White House staff salaries that was submitted to Congress, an $11,000 difference is clear between the median female employee salary and the median male employee salary.
However, as The Washington Times’ Emily Miller highlighted Tuesday, not only is the Obama administration guilty of the very inequality they are accusing private industry of, all of the Senate Democrat leaders are likewise acting hypocritically in regard to gender equality. Miller found that all of the lead Democratic Senators—including Harry Reid, Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, and Patty Murray—have male chiefs of staff and male communications directors and, thus, all have female staffers that are paid less than the males. Out of the two parties, the Republican leadership is in fact modeling gender equality far better than its self-proclaimed pro-women counterparts.
When White House Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri light-heartedly mocked news organizations for sending mostly men to ask about “gender pay inequity,” Fox News reporter Ed Henry responded with a tweet so sarcastic it’s making headlines.
On Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, White House correspondent Major Garrett completely dismantled President Obama’s left-wing talking points on the supposed gender pay gap of women making 77 cents on the dollar compared to men, reporting: “The White House is getting…roughed up by hits own pay equity rhetoric.” [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]
