Oil magnate T. Boone Pickens believes President Obama has a plan to keep his campaign promise to wean America off foreign oil within 10 years — and Pickens thinks, well, he is the plan.
Union members are gathering on Wall Street Thursday to protest bank practices and push for specific reforms. The AFL-CIO, one of the largest labor unions in the country, expects 10,000 people to march through New York’s financial district calling for, among other things, a tax on trading. Union leaders say big banks owe taxpayers for the $700 billion bailout the firms received during the financial crisis.
Yesterday's Goldman Sachs hearing on capitol hill provided hours of highly-anticipated political theater. Democratic Senator Ted Kaufman led the charge by loudly accusing Goldman executives of lying — he effectively says it was obvious that subprime loans wouldn’t perform, that they were full of fraud, and that Goldman was being underhanded in their dealings with clients. They must have known — because it was common sense that giving loans to people without verifying their income was a bad idea, right?

It’s official — federal agencies can now require that contractors be unionized to bid on large federal construction projects. A ruling sent down by the White House on Tuesday finalized an Executive Order President Obama signed last year, which promotes the use of Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on federal contracts. PLAs are pre-hire, collective-bargaining agreements with unions that establish terms of a large contract.
The White House distanced itself from comments made last week by one of its top economic advisers in support of a new national consumption tax — yet others close to President Obama have similarly spoken in favor of a Value-Added Tax in recent months.
In honor of tax day, the Media Research Center (MRC) is releasing a report on how the press ignored, then disparaged the Tea Party movement. MRC, a conservative watchdog group, analyzed every mention of the Tea Party on ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening newscasts, as well as on Sunday talk shows. The group produced a report aimed to coincide with Tea Party protests on April 15.
After weeks of analyzing data on progressive values and counting down the top 100 liberal-friendly counties, The Daily Caller is proud to present its final result: shockingly, the city by the Bay is the most liberal place in America. In keeping with our tradition of reporting on what life is like in the most polarized places in the country (see: conservative Williams County — guitar-shaped pools and more churches that you could swing a dead cat at), we took at look at San Francisco. Click here to view the full list of the top 20 liberal counties and slideshow.

Union officers' pension plans are significantly better funded than the plans they negotiate for their rank-and-file counterparts, raising questions about whether union members have been manipulated by those they trust to bargain for them.
Legislation introduced last week could shift costs of union pension plans to taxpayers in an attempt to stave off organized labor’s pension funding crisis.
The venerable publishing company World Book, which produces a variety of popular reference materials, has released an online children's encyclopedia that is drawing fire from experts who charge that it lets politics get in the way of objective facts.
The Obama administration has proposed to overhaul the concept of what constitutes “inherently governmental” activity – with an eye toward keeping jobs that are deemed a core function of the government in-house.

Jesse James on Wednesday became the latest in a string of high-profile celebrities to enter rehab for a pathological inability to remain faithful to his wife. The Daily Caller engaged in some hard-hitting journalism to figure what the ado about sex addiction therapy is all about.
