Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) could be one of the biggest obstacles to passing audit the Fed in the Senate. As a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Senator Corker has been an outspoken opponent of the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.
Corker recently said: “People say this, audit the Fed, and I don’t think they really realize the Fed is audited and what this is really about is Congress getting involved in monetary policy.”
However, that’s not the case.
Tesla today announced a whole new product line called the Model W. As many in the media predicted, it's a watch. That's what the "W" stands for.
This incredible new device from Tesla doesn't just tell the time, it also tells the date. What's more, it is infinitely adjustable, able to tell the time no matter where you are on Earth. Japan, Timbuktu, California, anywhere! This will change your life. Reality as you know it will never be the same.

A Shocking Admission: “The Federal Reserve is a Criminal Conspiracy”

A spokesperson assured the assembled media that the Fed Board was “deeply concerned” about the American people, inflation, and the unemployment rate, but he was heckled off the stage.
Retired news legend Barbara Walters still has some clout - and a strong opinion about how ABC can turn things around at the ratings-challenged show she created, The View.
Barbara's magic bullet: Monica Lewinsky.
Walters says that the former White House intern would be a 'run away success' on The View, a network source tells Daily Mail Online.
She would attract great guests - even if casting her as a regular co-host would make it unlikely that potential 2016 Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton or President Bill Clinton would ever appear on the show again.
Breitbart.com snagged a snippet of an interview from the Hugh Hewitt show where Jeb Bush expressed just how “nervous” he was about the NSA. Not about their unconstitutional domestic spying, or about the rights of Americans being violated – none of that stuff. No, what makes Jeb nervous is that Obama, who he admits has actually enhanced the spying capabilities of the NSA, hasn’t defended that organization enough.
The presidential plans of GOP senators are testing the loyalties of their home-state brethren.
By Manu Raju and Lauren French
Republicans from all across Kentucky will be in the audience next week when Sen. Rand Paul announces his presidential run in Louisville — with one big exception.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has endorsed Paul’s national bid. But there are official endorsements and then there are endorsements with all the accouterments — fundraising help, stops on the campaign trail, leaning on fellow pols to get on board — and McConnell’s imprimatur is decidedly in the former category.
In the latest twist in a relationship between two politicians who in many respects are polar opposites, the Republican leader won’t be on hand for his junior senator’s White House campaign kickoff. Sources familiar with his decision insisted it’s not meant as a slight: McConnell is simply following through on his pledge not to campaign for Paul, lest he play favorites among the three other members of his conference planning or eyeing bids of their own.
“While McConnell has made his support for Rand known, he also has a job to do as majority leader,” said one Republican official with knowledge of their relationship. “With several members of his conference running for the same office, it’s just easier for him to do his day job that way.”
Taking aim at Jeb Bush, a group of leading New Hampshire conservatives and libertarians are preparing to stage their own caucus three months before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary — and then unify behind the winner.
Sick of the string of centrist GOP-ers who’ve dominated the state’s primary in recent years — including John McCain (twice) and Mitt Romney — conservatives and libertarians are hoping to defy the conventional wisdom that the Granite State is moderate-friendly turf between the evangelical-dominated Iowa caucuses and socially conservative South Carolina.

A new report claims that Facebook secretly installs tracking cookies on users’ computers, allowing them to follow users around the internet even after they’ve left the website, deleted their account and requested to be no longer followed.
Academic researchers said that the report showed that the company was breaking European law with its tracking policies. The law requires that users are told if their computers are receiving cookies except for specific circumstances.
Facebook’s tracking — which it does so that it can tailor advertising — involves putting cookies or small pieces of software on users’ computers, so that they can then be followed around the internet. Such technology is used by almost every website, but European law requires that users are told if they are being given cookies or being tracked. Companies don’t have to tell users if the cookies are required to connect to a service or if they are needed to give the user information that they have specifically requested.

A congressional panel investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks called for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday to testify by May 1, following a scandal involving her use of private emails while serving as secretary of state.
The Romans invented indoor plumbing. It took America in the late 20th century to uninvent it.
The fateful year was 1994, when the federal government mandated that all toilets manufactured and sold in the U.S. have tanks no bigger than 1.6 gallons. It was the new prohibitionism. Gradually over the coming years, the toilets stopped working as they once did.
