The conservative journalist duped progressives Ed Begley Jr. and Mariel Hemmingway to get involved in an anti-fracking film that was funded by Middle Eastern oil interests.

O’Keefe will unveil the movie at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday!

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

James O’Keefe says he duped Ed Begley Jr. and Mariel Hemmingway into agreeing to get involved with an anti-fracking movie while hiding that its funding comes from Middle Eastern oil interests.

Journalist James O’Keefe, known for his controversial undercover sting operations aimed usually at liberals – is set to unveil at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday the first of a group of videos that he says will reveal hypocrisy among Hollywood environmentalists.

In the video, obtained exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter and embedded below, actors Ed Begley Jr. and Mariel Hemmingway are duped by a man named “Muhammad,” who is looking to make an anti-fracking movie while hiding that its funding is coming from Middle Eastern oil interests.

Muhammad, accompanied by a man pretending to be an ad executive, seemingly has the two actors agreeing to participate in the scheme, even after he acknowledges that his goal is to keep America from becoming energy independent. The meeting, which appears to have been secretly recorded, took place a few months ago at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

And, he’s going to release this Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival!

President Asshat Caught Telling Yet Another Whopper

The Obama Lie That Was So Bad The Washington Post Said, ‘On Just About Every Level, This Claim Is Ridiculous’ – The Blaze

President Barack Obama earned “four Pinocchios” from the Washington Post Fact Checker, the highest ranking for a political lie, for asserting that Republicans filibustered 500 pieces of legislation, an exaggeration of nearly five times the reality.

.

.
Obama spoke at a fundraising event for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Los Angeles Wednesday, and made the charge against Republican lawmakers.

“Here’s what’s more disconcerting; their willingness to say no to everything – the fact that since 2007, they have filibustered about 500 pieces of legislation that would help the middle class just gives you a sense of how opposed they are to any progress – has actually led to an increase in cynicism and discouragement among the people who were counting on us to fight for them,” Obama said.

The Post unsparingly said of the president’s assertion, “On just about every level, this claim is ridiculous.”

“We realize that Senate rules are complex and difficult to understand, but the president did serve in the Senate and should be familiar with its terms and procedures. Looking at the numbers, he might have been able to make a case that Republicans have blocked about 50 bills that he had wanted passed, such as an increase in the minimum wage,” the Post said. “But instead he inflated the numbers to such an extent that he even included votes in which he, as senator, supported a filibuster.”

The Post said that in reality, “there have just been 133 successful filibusters—meaning a final vote could not take place–since 2007.”

Obama was bending the definition of filibuster, which means extending debate to delay a vote on a bill. However, the Post said he was likely referring to 527 cloture motions that were filed in the Senate since 2007 to close debate and go straight to a vote.

To automatically correlate a cloture motion and filibuster is inaccurate, the Post said, citing studies from both the non-partisan Congressional Research Service and the left-leaning think tank Brookings Institution.

The 2013 CRS report said, “it would be erroneous, however, to treat this table as a list of filibusters on nominations.”

The 2002 Brookings report asserted 94 percent correlation rate between cloture motions and filibusters from 1917 1996. “But, even if you accept the way Senate Democrats like the frame the issue, the president is still wrong,” the Post said.

“He referred to ‘legislation’—and most of these cloture motions concerned judicial and executive branch nominations. In the 113th Congress, for instance, 83 of the 136 cloture motions so far have concerned nominations, not legislation.”

The Post noted that Obama referenced two years before he was president, when he was voting himself to block votes on legislation.

“Obama’s count also includes at least a half-dozen instances when Republicans were blocked by Democrats through use of the filibuster. In fact, in the biggest oddity, the president reached back to 2007 in making his claim, so he includes two years when he was still a senator,” the Post said. “On eight occasions, he voted against ending debate—the very thing he decried in his remarks.”

Harry Reid Caught Giving Up To $31,000 In Campaign “Gift” Money To Granddaughter

Dirty Harry Reid Caught Giving Campaign “Gift” Money To Granddaughter In 2013… And 2012! …Up To $31,000! – Gateway Pundit

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) fumed at reporters Wednesday after he was asked about the FEC probe on his campaign donations to family members. The FEC discovered that Harry gifted his granddaughter with $17,000 in 2013.

.

.
Harry Reid reimbursed his campaign the $17,000 “holiday gift” he paid to his granddaughter in late 2013.

The Las Vegas Sun reported:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reimbursed his campaign nearly $17,000 paid to his granddaughter for “holiday gifts” in late 2013, after the Federal Election Commission insisted that his campaign clarify why the money was spent.

The FEC sent the treasurer for Friends of Harry Reid a letter insisting that he “must include a brief statement or description… to clarify the following description: ‘holiday gifts.’”

Reid’s campaign operation listed that description on its year-end report for two separate disbursements to Ryan Elisabeth of Berkley, Calif., on Oct. 23 – one for $5,416.93, the other for $11,370.00.

“Ryan Elisabeth” is actually Ryan Elisabeth Reid, the majority leader’s granddaughter, a spokeswoman for Reid confirmed Tuesday.

But there’s more…

According to the Ralston Reports – On Dec. 4, 2012, nearly a year before Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gave his granddaughter the nearly $17,000 for “holiday gifts,” his campaign gave Ryan Elisabeth Reid $9,000 for “gifts for supporters.”

More… In 2012 Reid helped out a Chinese solar firm that was represented by his son.

In December 2010 top democrats, including Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), helped a Chinese firm get stimulus cash for a wind farm. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his campaign received thousands of dollars in donations from the wind farm’s backers.

In 2012 Senate Majority leader Harry Reid personally pressured DHS on behalf of sons casino project.

UPDATE: “On Wednesday, Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston discovered that Reid’s campaign had paid out an additional $14,000 to Ryan Elisabeth Reid’s jewelry company for “holiday gifts” for staff and campaign donors.” (Adam O’Neal, “Reid to Reimburse Campaign $31,000 Paid to Kin for Gifts,” Real Clear Politics, 3/27/14)

Connecticut Substitute Teacher Caught Masturbating In School Hallway As Students Pass By

Substitute Teacher Charged With Masturbating In School Hallway As Students Pass By – Weekly Vice

Michael Luecke, a 72-year-old substitute teacher at Westhill High School, was jailed Wednesday after he was allegedly discovered masturbating in a school hallway.

.

.
According to police, Luecke’s activity was discovered at about 7:30 a.m. when a school paraprofessional who was walking the hall noticed a man laying on the floor.

Thinking that the man might be hurt, the paraprofessional moved in for a closer look. That’s when she realized that Luecke’s hand was in his pants “manipulating his penis,” according to the arrest affidavit.

The woman immediately alerted school officials who removed Luecke from the class he was teaching and then contacted police.

Investigators reviewed school surveillance video which reportedly shows Luecke masturbating in a school stairwell while staring at a group of students in a nearby courtyard. Luecke is then seen laying on his back and masturbating as six students pass by his location.

Luecke was booked into jail and charged with public indecency, breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.

Commie Mayor De Blasio Caught Running Stop Signs After Announcing Crackdown On Dangerous Driving

Mayor De Blasio’s SUV Caught On Camera Running Two Stop Signs And Speeding just Days After He Announced Crackdown On Dangerous Driving – New York Daily News

.

.
It’s another tale of two cities – one set of traffic rules for Mayor de Blasio, and one for the rest of us.

Just two days after de Blasio announced a sweeping plan to crack down on dangerous driving, an SUV with the mayor riding shotgun ran stop signs, changed lanes without signaling and flouted the speed limit.

.

.
It was caught on camera by a WCBS-TV/Channel 2 news crew that trailed de Blasio’s official two-vehicle motorcade after he left a news conference in Queens Thursday touting the city’s pothole repair work.

The behavior was a far cry from de Blasio’s comments Tuesday when he announced his Vision Zero plan to end traffic deaths.

.

.
He proposed a slew of measures, including lowering the citywide speed limit and installing more cameras to catch drivers who speed and run red lights.

.

.
“We’ve put a very bold plan before you,” he said Tuesday, “and we want the public to know we’re holding ourselves to this standard and we intend to achieve these goals.”

Yet, on Thursday, his official black SUV blew through two stop signs in Queens and was clocked by Channel 2 traveling 40 to 45 mph in a 30 mph zone and pushing 60 in a 45 mph zone.

.

.
When he reached City Hall, the mayor lingered in his SUV, leaving the second car in his caravan unable to pass through the City Hall gate – blocking a crosswalk and an intersection.

.

.
If a driver had been ticketed for all the violations, he would have racked up 13 points on his license – more than the 11 that trigger a suspension, Channel 2’s Marcia Kramer reported.

It is not clear why the mayor was in a rush, but he is often behind schedule. His news conference in Queens began 15 minutes late.

While serving as the city’s public advocate, in 2010, de Blasio chose to drive himself, “often accelerating aggressively to beat yellow lights,” according to an account in The New York Times.

De Blasio’s press secretary, Phil Walzak, said, “We believe public safety is everyone’s responsibility. We also recognize NYPD’s training and protocols, and refer questions related to security and transportation to them. With that in mind, Mayor de Blasio is firmly committed to the traffic safety policies outlined this week.”

In a prepared statement, the Police Department said “personnel assigned to the mayor’s security detail receive specialized training in driving based on maintaining security as well as safety.”

“At certain times, under certain conditions, this training may include… maintaining speed with the general flow of traffic, and may sometimes include tactics to safely keep two or more police vehicles together in formation when crossing intersections.”

Assistant Principal Caught On Video Admitting To Woman That She Sexually Abused Her As A Child

California Teacher That Allegedly Abused Girl Exposed In YouTube Video – New York Daily News

A California woman – who says she was sexually abused for years by her basketball coach – confronts her attacker in a damning YouTube video that quickly led to the educator’s resignation.

.

.
“Everything was stolen from me,” Jaime Carrillo, now a mother of two, told KTLA5 as she choked back tears. “I want her to be in jail and to pay for what she’s done.”

Carrillo, 28, has come forward to expose a relationship Andrea Cardosa allegedly started when the girl was just 12 – and stretched throughout her teenage years, according to reports.

Carrillo recorded her phone confrontation with Cardosa – who had since risen to the ranks of assistant principal at Alhambra High School – in a video that was sent to school officials.

Cardosa resigned from her post Friday – the same day the video was posted – and has gone into relative hiding since she was exposed online. Carrillo’s lawyers are exploring the possibility of a criminal or civil suit.

“The matter was handed over to the Alhambra Police Department who immediately began their investigation,” the school said in a statement.

Cardosa was reportedly allowed to quietly resign from her previous position at the middle school and continue her career, her lawyer said.

“That’s typically called passing the trash. If that is in fact true, everyone would agree that’s absolutely outrageous conduct,” her lawyer David Ring said during a news conference on Monday.

The alleged abuse began while Cardosa was working at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside. Carrillo says she was an impressionable girl when Cardosa began ensnaring her in a web of self-pity, Carillo told KLTA.

Cardosa cornered Carrillo one day at school – her advances grew from kissing to X-rated groping, the girl said.

.

.
“She was kissing me, and then it turned into putting her hands down my pants,” she told KTLA. “She just completely manipulated me into thinking that I needed her and I wanted it.”

The two carried on the torrid tryst until Carrillo was 20, she said. Cardosa can barely muster a full sentence in the video as Carrillo repeatedly slammed her alleged abuser for the entire world to hear.

“You should be so ashamed and disgusted with yourself,” Carrillo yells into the phone.

The educator could only eke out an “I am” on the other line.

“How f—–g dare you,” the distraught woman says, shaking as she holds the phone.

“I regret it every day,” Cardosa says glumly.

The YouTube video has collected more than 289,000 views as of Tuesday morning. Many of the commenters commended Carrillo for her bravery. Formal charges have yet to be brought against Cardosa.

Carrillo, who admits to still being emotionally damaged by the relationship, said Monday that she was shocked that Cardosa never apologized during the heated confrontation.

“It took a lot for me to come forward, but I kept thinking about my own kids and how I didn’t wouldn’t want anything happening to them,” Carrillo said.

Here’s the chilling confrontation between Carrillo and Cardosa, blow-by-blow:

Carrillo: Is this Ms. Cardosa?

Cardosa: Yes.

Carrillo: Um, the Ms. Cardosa that used to work in Moreno Valley?

Cardosa: Well, it depends on what part of Moreno Valley. Um, what, you know, um, yes.

Carrillo: Is it Val Verde school district?

Cardosa: Yes.

.

.
Carrillo: [inaudible] used to work at Chemawa?

Cardosa: Yes.

Carrillo: OK. This is Jamie. Um. You’re an assistant principal, huh?

Cardosa: [sigh] Yes.

Carrillo: So what happens when a student comes in and says that they’re having a sexual relationship with a teacher?

Cardosa: Then I would involve law enforcement.

Carrillo: So how is that any different from what you did when I was at Chemawa middle?

Cardosa: It’s not.

Carrillo: So why are you excluded from the law? Why did you do that? I was only 12-years-old when I met you. You realize you brainwashed me and you manipulated me? And that what you did was wrong?

Cardosa: Yes. And I regret it.

.

.
Carrillo: You know that I am completely messed up? That I have so many issues because of you?

Cardosa: I just wanted to help you.

Carrillo: How is having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old student helping?

Cardosa: That wasn’t anything that I intended. I don’t even know what happened.

Carrillo: It’s completely shocking to me that you are an assistant principal. Are you doing this with other students too?

Cardosa: No.

Carrillo: Is that how you help them?

Cardosa: No. Not at all.

Carrillo: You ruined my life. You ruined my childhood. You realize that?

Cardosa: No.

Carrillo: You sicken me. You sicken me. Every day when I think about what you did you sicken me. I have kids of my own and I’m the age now that I pretty much met you at and I could never think about doing the things that you did. You should be so ashamed and so disgusted with yourself.

Cardosa: I am. I am.

Carrillo: How F—–g dare you.

Cardosa: I regret it every day. Every day.

Carrillo: You’re disgusting. Bye.

President Asshat Caught Lying About Meeting His Own Brother (Audio)

Obama’s Half-Brother ‘Floored’ About President’s Lying About Meeting Him – National Review

Mark Obama Ndesandjo said he was surprised to hear his half-brother President Barack Obama say they had only recently met for the first time.

.

……………………….Click on image above for audio clip.

.
“I was floored by it – I don’t know why he said it,” Ndesandjo said to Laura Ingraham, adding that he had met the president several times over the years and still isn’t sure what his motivation was for making the claim. “I think he was being president and was not being my brother,” Ndesandjo said.

From their first meeting, which took place in the 1980s in Kenya, where he lived as an American ex-pat, Ndesandjo​ said both he and the president had different views: Ndesandjo was trying to distance himself from his father and his father’s name, while Obama was looking to further embrace his father’s roots.

When Ingraham pointed out that Obama doesn’t spend very much time with his extended family and seems to prefer the company of celebrities such as Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Ndesandjo said she “had a point.” Ndesandjo, who has a book coming out in February, said ultimately that he isn’t very political and tends to focus on “the art side.”

Federal Judge: Obama’s DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Alien Parents

Judge: DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Immigrant Parents – Daily Caller

A case out of Texas has a federal judge asking just which side of the law the Department of Homeland Security is working for.

.

.
United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas Brownsville Division Andrew S. Hanen rebuked DHS for helping to deliver an illegal immigrant minor – detained at the border with her human smuggler – to her illegal immigrant mother living in Virginia.

Homeland Security “successfully complet[ed] the mission of the criminal conspiracy” to smuggle the child across the border to her parent, the judge wrote in an order issued on Dec. 13.

The mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, had agreed to pay $8,500 to have human smugglers bring her child from El Salvador to Virginia.

The smuggler, Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, was arrested and the child detained at a Texas border checkpoint when they were caught trying to use a birth certificate that belonged to Nava-Martinez’s daughter.

Nava-Martinez, a resident alien, also had a prior felony for food-stamp fraud in 2011.

“Despite this setback, the goal of the conspiracy was completed thanks to the actions of the United States Government,” Hanen wrote. “This Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (hereinafter ‘DHS’) of completing the criminal mission of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States.”

“Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child was taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos instigated this illegal conduct,” the judge continued. “Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her – thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. The DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.”

This was “the fourth case with the same factual situation this court has had in as many weeks,” Hanen wrote.

In each of those cases, Hanen explained, illegal immigrant minors – whose illegal immigrant parent or parents were paying human smugglers to bring them into the United States – detained prior to arriving at their destination were delivered to their illegal immigrant parents by DHS.

The judge noted that in all four cases, the American taxpayer ended up on the hook for the final delivery.

“In all cases when the Government apprehended some of the traffickers, the Government transported the children across the country to unite them with a parent (or parents) who was in the country illegally. In one situation, the Government flew a child to multiple locations in different parts of the United States. The taxpayers of the United States suffer the expense of delivering these minors,” Hanen wrote.

“This is an absurd and illogical result. The DHS could reunite the parent and child by apprehending the parent who has committed not one, by at least two different crimes,” he continued.

The judge added that “the failure by DHS to enforce current United States law” is concerning because illegal activities of this kind help fund drug cartels. It also undermines the deterrent effect of the nation’s immigration laws and lowers the moral of the men and women risk their lives to enforce the law, he wrote.

The order comes as Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and the union representing ICE officers and staff have been sounding the alarm about lack of immigration enforcement at DHS, with the Alabama lawmaker recently issuing a “Timeline of Administrative Non-Enforcement of Federal Immigration Law.”

DHS did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Nonprofit Obamacare Enrollment Group Caught On Video Conspiring To Engage In Political Activity

O’Keefe Video Captures Nonprofit Obamacare Enrollment Group Conspiring To Engage In Political Activity – Daily Caller

An official with the nonprofit Obamacare enrollment group Enroll America conspired to give people’s personal information to what he thought was a political action committee, according to James O’Keefe’s latest video, provided to The Daily Caller.

.

Enroll America, which Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted to fundraising for, is a “nonpartisan” 501(c)(3) nonprofit that critics accuse of working as an unofficial Obamacare navigator across the country.

Enroll America’s Texas state communications lead Christopher Tarango conspired to provide a list of potential Obamacare enrollees, obtained through the “commit cards” that the group hands out door to door to help them pick insurance plans, to an O’Keefe investigator posing as the representative of a political action committee.

Tarango also admitted that someone tried to export a list from the nonprofit pro-Obama advocacy group Organizing for Action [OFA] to a political campaign, but that the attempted leaker was caught.

.

.
“I still don’t think we can get a list from Enroll America because of the 501(c)(3) status. How do you suppose we get around that?,” Tarango told the investigator from O’Keefe’s group Project Veritas, who tried to purchase the list from Tarango on November 8.

“Okay, I will talk to one person that I think might be open to having this conversation behind closed doors and I will get back to you on that,” Tarango said.

“The answer is this guy has access to this list. Is he willing to play ball? That’s another conversation…I don’t know if he’s willing to play ball. But I’m willing to have that conversation with him. Yes,” Tarango said.

“And the reason that I know this is because last year in North Texas, in your neck of the woods, someone did that. Someone exported a list, an OFA list so they could then give it to a political campaign, a local political campaign, and… they caught him doing this immediately. So I don’t know what mechanism is in place for folks to find out that this list was exported or whatever. But there are those safeguards in place,” Tarango said.

Tarango made clear that “the person [he] is referring to” is “like me in a leadership position, and so he could export the list if he wanted to.”

“I know him well enough to feel like if we had a few beers that this would not be the craziest conversation that he’s ever heard. Is he my boy? The answer is no but I think we can speak the same language,” Tarango said.

“So in the meanwhile what I’ll do is have that conversation with this individual. I will think a little bit further about the idea that I had with the progressive Project and just, you know, ask some questions out there and I’ll also talk to some of my other friends within the political infrastructure here in Texas and ask them… And have a conversation with them about how we can get proven immediately, uh, proven, proven voter contact lists,” Tarango said.

In an earlier happy hour conversation also captured by Project Veritas, Tarango discussed his partisan political activity.

I’m doing Enroll America right now but I’m also, I shouldn’t be saying this, but I’m also helping out with [House District 50 race]. So that’s as partisan as it gets,” Tarango said, noting that “we’re all Obama people” in the nonprofit groups Enroll America, Battleground Texas, and Organizing for Action.

Enroll America did not immediately return a request for comment.

Sebelius’ relationship with Enroll America is the subject of a pending government ethics audit.

Sebelius admitted in testimony before a House ethics panel in June that she personally asked the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and H&R Block to contribute to Enroll America. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation owns more than $1 billion across 13 million shares of stock in Johnson & Johnson, which is regulated by HHS.

The HHS inspector general even subpoenaed Johnson and Johnson in August for information about its promotional efforts for a pain medication.

Sebelius also admitted that she called the health insurers Kaiser Permanente, Ascension Health, and Johnson and Johnson – all of which are regulated by HHS – to discuss Enroll America, but without soliciting donations in those calls. Sebelius bestowed a 2012 award on Kaiser Permanente Colorado, vowing that Kaiser “will be serving as a role model for the rest of the country.”

The Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) open audit of Sebelius’ communications on behalf of Enroll America is still pending, though a GAO spokesman declined to provide details to The Daily Caller about the status of the audit.

Obama Regime Caught Violating The Law… Again

Appeals Court: Obama Violating Law On Nuke Site – Times Dispatch

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has been violating federal law by delaying a decision on a proposed nuclear waste dump in Nevada, a court ruled Tuesday.

.

By a 2-1 vote, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ordered the commission to complete the licensing process and approve or reject the Energy Department’s application for a waste site at Yucca Mountain.

In a sharply worded opinion, the court said the NRC was “simply flouting the law” when it allowed the Obama administration to continue plans to close the proposed waste site 90 miles from Las Vegas.

The action violates a law designating Yucca Mountain as the nation’s nuclear waste repository.

“The president may not decline to follow a statutory mandate or prohibition simply because of policy objections,” Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh wrote in the majority opinion, which was joined by Judge A. Raymond Randolph. Chief Judge Merrick B. Garland dissented.

“It is no overstatement to say that our constitutional system of separation of powers would be significantly altered if we were to allow executive and independent agencies to disregard federal law in the manner asserted in this case by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission,” Kavanaugh wrote.

An NRC spokesman said Tuesday that the agency was reviewing the decision.

The decision was hailed by supporters of the Yucca site, which has been the focus of a dispute that stretches more than three decades. The government has spent $15 billion on the site but has never completed it. No waste is stored there.

South Carolina and Washington state filed a lawsuit seeking to force the NRC to rule on the Yucca Mountain application. The states have large nuclear waste sites that would use the Yucca repository.

Under pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., the administration abandoned the project early in the president’s first term.

Reid called the court decision “fairly meaningless.” Congress has cut funding for Yucca and is unlikely to restore it, Reid said. The site has drawn nearly unanimous opposition from Nevada elected officials.

Woman Caught On Tape Casually Plotting Murder Of Husband With Cop Posing As Hit Man

Breathtaking Footage Of Wife Meeting With Fake Hit Man To Plan Her Husband’s Murder – Daily Caller

Muskegon County resident Julia Merfeld hired a Michigan State police detective disguised as a hit man to have her husband murdered.

.

Two meetings between the two were caught on hidden camera and captured this shocking footage.

Merfeld was arrested after the second meeting with the fake hit man, both conversations occurring in his vehicle and lasting about 11 minutes.

21-year-old Merfeld told the cop she thought was a hit-man, “When I first decided to do this… its not that we weren’t getting along. But… terrible as it sounds, it was easier than divorcing him.”

Authorities attribute another motive: her 27-year-old husband’s $400,000 life insurance policy. Merfeld planned to use some of the life insurance money to pay the hit man’s fee, she told him.

In this astonishing footage, the young wife discusses possible dates for the killing in between laughs and checking her calendar on her cell phone.

.

.
During the second meeting, she gives him a floor plan of the house and directions. She then tells him she wants it done in the most painless way possible.

The detective tells Merfeld that when she leaves his car it will be a done deal, to which the young wife responds, “It makes me sad.” She proceeds to leave the vehicle and wish the hit man good luck.

The man who tipped off police was Carlos Ramos, her co-worker whom she offered $50,000 to kill her husband. Instead, he called police, who set up the meetings with the fake hit man that led to her arrest, according to MLive.

The couple recently moved to Muskegon, MI from New Jersey with their two young children.

Merfeld is currently being held in Muskegon County Jail where she awaits her trial on July 30. The judge committed to a minimum sentence of six years and a maximum up to life in prison after she pleaded guilty to solicitation for murder on June 26th.

State Department Caught Lying About Secretary Kerry Yachting During Egypt Coup

State Dept: Oops, We Lied, Kerry Was Yachting During Egypt Coup – Big Peace

On Friday, the State Department admitted that Secretary of State John Kerry was on his yacht off of the coast of Nantucket as the Egyptian military took over the country from elected Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi. Originally, the State Department denied the report from CBS reporter Mosheh Oinounou that Kerry was aboard the “Isabel” Wednesday afternoon. The State Department said that Kerry was working “all day” on Egypt, and State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki – the same Obama campaign worker who once claimed that the campaign knew nothing about Joe Soptic – said that the CBS report was “completely inaccurate.” That despite multiple tweets, reports, and even video of the Kerry motorcade getting stuck in traffic.

.

On Friday, Psaki said that Kerry was “briefly on his boat on Wednesday.”

In other words, the American people were directly lied to about the whereabouts of the Secretary of State as a coup took place in one of the most strategically important countries in the world – a country where the President of the United States chose to launch in foreign policy in 2009, where the US embassy was overrun in 2012, and where the Obama administration planted its flag with the Arab Spring in 2010. Only an administration completely secure in its control of media spin could pull such a stunt.

Psaki added, “Secretary Kerry has been working tirelessly around the clock since he returned from his 10-day trip and there has not been a moment where he has not been focused on doing everything possible to communicate with his team in Washington and in Egypt, within the administration and with his counterparts around the world.”

Location of key officials during national security situations has been a repeated problem for the Obama administration, which still refuses to explain where President Obama was on September 11, 2012 as the US consulate in Benghazi was under fire and Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered.

At this point, State Department non-essential staff have been given a mandatory evacuation order from Egypt. But, as a former Secretary of State once put it, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Whistleblowers: University Raising Black Students’ Grades In Order To Raise School’s Standing

Public University Unfairly Raising Grades Of Black Students, Say Three Former Faculty Members – Campus Reform

School administrators at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) are systematically raising the final grades of African-American students, three ex-faculty members told Campus Reform last month.

.

Former Director of Academic Technology Shira Hedgepeth, along with two former professors who spoke to Campus Reform on the condition of anonymity, alleged administrators at the historically black college routinely increase the final grades of African-American students in order to raise the school’s standing.

“Some students had their final grades changed based on their race,” Hedgepeth told Campus Reform on June 6. “That was a common complaint of many of the faculty that I worked with.”

“None of the Caucasian or non-African American students… none of their grades were changed,” she added. “The way the grades fell out, there was no other reason for changing.”

Documents provided to Campus Reform by one of the former faculty members appear to validate these claims. Campus Reform has chosen not to publish the records due to concerns that doing so may violate the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act by revealing the names and grades of students.

According to Hedgepeth, and the two former professors who were granted anonymity because of they feared speaking out may jeopardize their retirement, instructors would submit final grades to the school only to have them later revised upwards by administrators as a way to “take care of their African American students.”

“There is no other motivation,” said Hedgepeth. “If you work on that campus you know it. Everything that was done was to make sure we service the African American students.”

WSSU’s spokesman, Aaron Singleton, however, told Campus Reform that the university had received no complaints.

“I checked throughout our administration and the university has not heard of any of those allegations,” said Singleton. “No one has filed any complaints at the university.”

According to one of the former professors, however, several faculty members have filed numerous complaints which were ignored.

“I have reported everything,” the professor said. “I doubt anything was done.”

“I have tried reaching out to our accrediting body but they would not take complaints such as these,” added Hedgepeth. “We have done everything we can to get somebody to start looking.”

Another former professor, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the practice is ongoing.

“Oh yes, definitely,” said the former professor. “Oh yes, it is still going on.”

The two professors wished to remain anonymous due to fears the school would retaliate against them.

“All the faculty, white and black are very fearful to speak,” said one of the professors. “The department is run by fear and through retaliation. If you speak out you will be retaliated against.”

Hedgepeth was terminated by WSSU in 2011. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has since ruled she was a victim of racial discrimination when she was terminated. She now has two pending lawsuits filed against the school.

Chicago Man Allegedly Caught Raping Pit Bull During Tour Of Pound

Gerardo Perez Allegedly Caught Raping Pit Bull During Chicago Pound Tour –

A Chicago man has been arrested and charged with forcing himself upon a pit bull dog during a tour of a local pound.

.
……….

NBC Chicago reports that 50-year-old Gerardo Perez allegedly assaulted the animal on May 29 at the Chicago Animal Care and Control Facility on S. Western Avenue. A worker claims to have caught Perez violating the dog in a cage in a restricted area of the pound.

Democrat State Senator Resigns After Getting Caught Spending Campaign Funds At Porn Shops

Senate Leader: State Senator Robert Ford Resigns – WLTX

State Senator Robert Ford has resigned from office, even as an ethics case against him proceeds at the State House.

Senate Pro Tem John Courson announced Friday he’d received a letter of resignation from Ford. It is effective immediately.

.

The news came on day two of an ethics hearing against him. The hearing is to decide if the Charleston Democrat violated ethics laws by using campaign money for personal expenses and failing to report expenses, donations, and personal loans.

During Thursday’s hearing, the committee heard claims that Ford spent some of the campaign money at two adult stores. Ford says the items were gag gifts for campaign staffers.

Ford’s lawyer says the problems were just sloppy bookkeeping.

Ford did not attend day two of the hearing after he spent the night in the hospital.

Ford’s attorney told News19 his client was taken to Palmetto Baptist Hospital in Columbia Thursday night, and was released Friday morning. He adds that doctors treated Ford for cardiovascular problems and high blood pressure.

If senators determine Ford violated the law, the findings could be sent to prosecutors.

Pennsylvania: Democrat Legislator Caught Trolling Pro-Fracking Constituents Online (Video)

Pa. Legislator Apologizes For Anonymous Online Attacks On Constituents Who Back Gas Drilling – Washington Post

A state legislator has apologized for anonymously attacking constituents who support Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling and calling a woman an “industry troll.”

Rep. Jesse White, D-Allegheny, apologized Thursday for online attacks that included saying the woman was “dumber than a box of rocks.”

.

The woman who was verbally abused, Janice Gibbs, is a 64-year-old resident of McDonald, a small town about 18 miles southwest of Pittsburgh that has seen a boom in a natural gas drilling process called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, over the last five years.

“The part that hurts the most is this is my state representative,” Gibbs said. “This is not just me talking to a neighbor.”

A friend of Gibbs, Darlene Barni, said residents have “a binder full” of posts that appear to have been made by White. She said residents have been working for months to confirm suspicions that White was behind attacks that included calling women who support drilling “whores.” She said part of the shock in the community is that White, who’s 34, had so aggressively attacked older people, who are normally treated with respect in rural communities.

Gibbs said the attacks on supporters of gas drilling escalated. She said she used the online name Proud American and then attacks started coming from another person with the tag Prouder American.

“It wasn’t a normal debate. It was a bashing,” Gibbs said of the anonymous attacks on her. “It made me nervous. It kind of scared me.”

White, who recently voted for a House bill that would make online impersonation a crime in cases of harassment, said in a statement that the posts were “an error in judgment that I regret” and that he’ll seek to meet with Gibbs and a local man he acknowledged attacking anonymously. White said he didn’t use government resources while posting the comments to websites.

White also complained that the natural gas industry had made “numerous misleading and personal attacks against me in an attempt to distract people from the real issues” about gas drilling.

TV station KDKA first reported White’s link to the online attacks. KDKA also reported that the anti-drilling website GasRootsPA was registered to White but that the registration was changed an hour after a reporter began asking questions.

.

.
White’s spokesman declined to comment on specific allegations.

The Pennsylvania natural gas drilling boom began in White’s district, and over the last few years he’s been engaged in a fight with state agencies and some drilling companies over the proper extent of regulations and oversight.

The Marcellus Shale lies under parts of Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and West Virginia. Fracking, which involves injecting large volumes of water with sand and hazardous chemicals underground to break apart rock, has made it possible to tap into deep reserves of oil and gas, but it also has raised concerns about air and water pollution.

White said that he won’t stop asking tough questions about gas drilling to ensure that “we’re developing our natural resources in a responsible way that generates an economic benefit to our community but also protects the people who live and work here.”

The Marcellus Shale Coalition, an industry group, declined to comment on White’s behavior.

7 Pakistanis, Saudis and Singaporeans Caught Trespassing At Massachusetts’ Largest Freshwater Reservoir

7 Caught Trespassing At Quabbin Reservoir In Belchertown, Mass.; Patrols Increased Across State – International Business Times

Seven people were detained on Tuesday after being caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown, Mass., state police have revealed.

Authorities say that the seven trespassers, consisting of five men and two women, are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, CBS Boston reports. Massachusetts State Police claim that each trespasser “cited their education and career interests” as their reason for being in the restricted area.

.

According to CBS Boston, the men told police that they were recent college graduates and chemical engineers.

State police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement that a trooper noticed two cars parked near a reservoir park entrance around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. Five men and two women were then spotted walking toward the vehicles from the direction of the Quabbin Reservoir.

The Quabbin Reservoir, located in Belchertown, Mass., is one of the nation’s largest manmade public water supplies, CBS Boston reports. The Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs provide drinking water for the city of Boston.

While the seven trespassers were questioned, state police said that there were no warrants or advisories pertaining to the individuals. Authorities added that “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing,” CBS Boston reports.

Each of the seven people were allowed to leave after being issued a summons for trespassing. However, the FBI is investigating the matter, and precautionary inspections of nearby public water supplies have been increased, CBS Boston reports.

The seven trespassers currently reside in the Massachusetts towns of Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland and Northampton, and New York City. State police have yet to release their names, as a court date has not been set.

President Asshat Caught In Yet Another Benghazi-gate Lie

PolitiFact: Obama Claim Benghazi Review Board ‘Investigated Every Element’ Is Pure Fiction – Big Journalism

For months, conservative media has been howling over the falsehood that the Accountability Review Board (ARB) offered a thorough investigation into the September 11 terror attack in Benghazi. The most frustrating part is that in order to ignore the legions of unanswered questions surrounding Libya, Obama and his media (most famously Slate’s Dave Weigel, who used the report to say GOP claims of a cover up were “pure fiction”) have hid behind the ARB’s report as though it were definitive.

.

On Monday, President Obama tried this ruse again. But now that the media has finally woken up from a five-year infatuation, he isn’t getting away with it. PolitiFact has labeled as “mostly false,” Obama’s claim that…

Over the last several months, there was a review board headed by two distinguished Americans, Mike Mullen and Tom Pickering, who investigated every element of [the Benghazi incident.]

Here is PolitiFact’s reasoning:

While the [ARB] did investigate numerous angles of the security issues, it didn’t look at who perpetrated the attack, nor did it probe the administration’s public communications afterward. No less an authority than the board’s co-chairman undercut Obama’s sweeping claim that the board “investigated every element” with repeated comments on three Sunday shows. On balance, we rate Obama’s claim Mostly False.

Oh how times have changed. Back in December Weigel could get away with using the ARB report to falsely claim the Administration had been cleared of a cover up even though the ARB didn’t even look into the possibility of a cover up.

Today, Obama can’t even get away with it.

By the way, this is the second falsehood the President of the United States has been caught telling this week.

And it is only Wednesday.
