Happy Dance time! Mother of All Bombs death toll rising!

Yes, more dead Jihadi swine is great news. Via The Right Scoop

The Associated Press says the death toll is rising!

The number of militants killed in an attack by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the U.S. military has risen to 94, an Afghan official said Saturday.

Ataullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, said the number of Islamic State group dead was up from the 36 reported a day earlier. A Ministry of Defense official had said Friday the number of dead could rise as officials assessed the bomb site in Achin district.

“Fortunately there is no report of civilians being killed in the attack,” Khogyani said.

The U.S. attack on a tunnel complex in remote eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border killed at least four IS group leaders, Khogyani said. He said a clearance operation to assess the site of the attack was continuing.

The Right Scoop also points out what soldiers are saying about America using its big stick

The Left hijacks another worthwhile cause

Give the Left a worthwhile cause and they will latch onto it, Then, slowly, but most assuredly, they will bastardize it, twist it, and use it to further their agenda. This time the cause is fighting bullying, and the Left is being joined by CAIR 

Educrats and Islamomaniacs are teaming up to impose ham-fisted moonbattery under the banner of antibulling:

Muslim safe spaces, increased lessons on Islam during social studies classes, and other measures will be adopted by San Diego Unified School District to combat bullying.

The Council for American-Islamic Relations and school officials in southern California collaborated on a “holistic” approach to bullying that will likely be implemented this fall. The changes, which include adding Muslim holidays to school calendars, are the result of a study directed by the San Diego school board in July 2016.

CAIR is a terror support group affiliated with Hamas.

“It’s more of a comprehensive program, not just a curriculum,” said Stan Anjan, the district’s executive director of family and community engagement, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday. “We’re looking at it from a very integrated and holistic approach.” …

“If we do this right, San Diego Unified School District would be the leading school district in the nation to come up with a robust and beautiful anti-bully and anti-Islamophobic program,” Mr. Anjan told the newspaper.

If CAIR is involved, it is propaganda, and nothing more. No parent should allow their child to have anything to do with this. Here is more on CAIR

Having explained why the UAE listed CAIR on its terror manifest, we must ask a second question: Is the listing warranted? Can a Washington-based organization with ties to the Obama White House, the U.S. Congress, leading media outlets, and prestigious universities truly be an instigator of terrorism? CAIR can rightly be so characterized. True, it does not set off bombs, but, as the UAE’s foreign minister explains, “Our threshold is quite low. . . . We cannot accept incitement or funding.” Indeed, CAIR incites, funds, and does much more vis-à-vis terrorism:

It apologizes for terrorist groups: Challenged repeatedly to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups, CAIR denounces the acts of violence but not their sponsors. It is connected to Hamas: Hamas, designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and many other governments, indirectly created CAIR and the two groups remain tight. Examples: In 1994, CAIR head Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas; the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), a Hamas front group, contributed $5,000 to CAIR; in turn, CAIR exploited the 9/11 attacks to raise money for HLF; and, this past August, demonstrators at a CAIR-sponsored rally in Florida proclaimed “We are Hamas!” It settled a lawsuit: CAIR initiated a libel lawsuit in 2004 over five statements by a group called Anti-CAIR. But two years later, CAIR settled the suit with prejudice (meaning that it cannot be reopened), implicitly acknowledging the accuracy of Anti-CAIR’s assertions, which included: “CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists”; “CAIR . . . is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries”; “CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists”; and “CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations.” It includes individuals accused of terrorism: At least seven board members or staff at CAIR have been arrested, denied entry to the U.S., or were indicted on or pled guilty to (or were convicted of) terrorist charges: Siraj Wahhaj, Bassem Khafagi, Randall (“Ismail”) Royer, Ghassan Elashi, Rabih Haddad, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, and Nabil Sadoun.

In short CAIR has no good will towards America, or liberty. In short they are our enemies

When it comes to giving advice about “Islamophobia,” CAIR is the last organization Republicans—or anyone, for that matter—should listen to. That’s because CAIR has been listed as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has categorized any organization critical of Islamism and Islamist extremism as either outright promoting hatred of Muslims or supporting anti-Islam themes, and has been active in shutting down free speech in the name of Islamophobia.

The “values” of CAIr are incompatible with Western culture

While CAIR has shown support for terrorist organizations even while speaking out against violence, it has spent much of its money and energy going after so-called Islamic hate groups and individuals in the United States. In its recent report, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and Its Impact in the United States,” CAIR outlines its vision for America and the groups it sees standing in the way of that vision.

CAIR divides organizations and individuals who are standing in the way of those goals into two groups. The “Inner Core” comprises organizations or individuals “whose primary purpose is to promote prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims and whose work regularly demonstrates Islamophobic themes.” The “Outer Core” groups are those who might not appear to be promoting prejudice against or hatred of Islam and Muslims, but their work “regularly demonstrates or supports Islamophobic themes.”

Thirty-seven groups make up the Inner Core, including ACT! for America, American Freedom Law Center, David Horowitz Freedom Center, Florida Family Association, Jihad Watch, Middle East Forum, and Tennessee Freedom Coalition.

Thirty-two groups make up the Outer Core, including American Center for Law and Justice, American Family Association, Christian Broadcasting Network, Eagle Forum, Fox News, Liberty Counsel, Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, National Review, The Mark Levin Show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, The Savage Nation, Washington Times, and Worldnet Daily.

Along with publishing these kinds of warnings about Islamophobia both in Inner and Outer Core groups, CAIR is active in shutting down the speech of anyone it has labeled anti-Muslim. CAIR was recently successful in getting a Federal Bureau of Investigation representative to withdraw from speaking at a Texas event called “Domestic Jihad & Isis,” hosted by St. Mary’s University’s Center for Terrorism Law in San Antonio, that was initially sponsored by ACT! for America. After CAIR’s protest, the event dropped ACT! as a sponsor and one of its speakers, John Guandolo, whom CAIR said was an “anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist.”

Again, if CAIR has its hands in this, parents must not say no, they must say HELL NO!

*VIDEO* Wild Bill Vs Hillary Clinton

.

Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of a Hillary Presidency is………

What would Hillary’s immigration stance be? No, I am not referring to a “wall” that is never going to get built anyway, no matter which party s in power. I am not even wondering about our Southern border, which is a crucial issue. No, my biggest concern is immigration by refugees. Refugees whose values are simply incompatible with American values. Daniel Greenfield has similar concerns

The wave of Muslim refugee terror began with a bomb targeting a U.S. Marine charity run in New Jersey. By evening a pressure cooker full of shrapnel has exploded outside a Manhattan building for the blind. An hour later, a rampaging Muslim terrorist began stabbing people inside a Macy’s, asking them if they were Muslim and shouting the name of “Allah,” the genocidal Islamic deity of mass murder.

And that was one Saturday, two Muslim refugees and a wave of national terror 1,200 miles apart.

What did Elizabeth, New Jersey and St. Cloud, Minnesota have in common?

New Jersey has the second largest Muslim population in the country. This isn’t the first time it was used as a staging ground for Muslim terror.

11 of the 19 September 11 hijackers hung out in Paterson (known colloquially as Paterstine). Head toward Jersey City and you can see where Muslim enemies of this country stood on rooftops and cheered the attacks on September 11. It’s also where the World Trade Center bombing mastermind and the Blind Sheikh who provided religious guidance for a proposed wave of Islamic terror operated.

Go south and in Elizabeth you can pass the First American Fried Chicken joint where the Rahami clan made life miserable for their American neighbors before one of their spawn began his bombing spree.

New Jersey is a map of Muslim terror plots because of its huge Muslim population.

Ahmad Khan Rahami came to America as the son of an Afghan refugee. He stabbed a man two years ago. His family was a local nuisance who cried “Islamophobia” at the least provocation. His brother was a Jihadi sympathizer and may have fled the country after assaulting a police officer. By the time Ahmad was done, he had wounded a police officer and 29 other people. If his plot had succeeded, he might have pulled off the largest Muslim terror atrocity in the country since September 11.

And of course Minnesota has similar issues

Minnesota has suffered from the presence of the largest Somali migrant population in the country. And so a state which used to be known for its Swedish and German immigrants instead became a recruiting ground for ISIS and Al-Shabab. Al-Shabab, which is aligned with Al Qaeda, attacked the Westgate mall in Kenya a few years ago. The Somali killers quizzed their victims to distinguish Muslims from non-Muslims.

Dahir Adan, the Somali Muslim migrant who invaded America from a refugee camp in Kenya, attempted to duplicate that attack, asking those he stabbed at the Crossroads Mall if they were Muslims.

Dozens of Somali migrants in America have joined Al-Shabab and ISIS. The only difference between Dahir Adan and them is that instead of getting on a plane back to his native Somalia to join the local Jihadists, he carried out his Jihad against the nighttime shoppers in a Macy’s.

The Crossroads attack was the tragic price paid by innocent people for Muslim refugee resettlement.

Muslim Somali migration dramatically increased under Obama, rising from 2,500 in 2008 to around 8,000 and 9,000 in the last few years. Somali settlers represent almost 1 percent of the population of Minnesota. Most of the “refugees” dumped in St. Cloud were Somalis migrants and Lutheran Social Services has taken the lead in inflicting Somalis on the unfortunate natives of St. Cloud.

From the very beginning of their arrival, the Somali colonists were a problem for the people of St. Cloud. They displaced American workers and clashed with the native population. In this decade, St. Cloud has become 10% Somali. The Crossroads attack was the inevitable result of that demographic growth.

What happened in New Jersey and Minnesota is the same thing that has been happening in Europe. Islamic terrorism is caused by Muslim migration. As the Muslim population grows, so does its terror.

Yes, just like Europe. well, Europe has it far worse, for now, because it has been more heavily engaged in allowing mass immigration of people who, again, hold very different values than the West does. Yes, Europe has it worse, for now. But Europe also grants us a preview what is to come. And that will be sooner rather than later given the Left thirst for more refugees, more Muslim refugees to be specific. The fact is the American Left is turning a blind eye to reality. Anyone who writes what Greenfield writes will be blasted as a bigot, as Islamophobic, or intolerant. Facts be damned, what we see in Europe be damned. We must have tolerance, or at least the Left’s perverse definition of tolerance in America. Even if it kills some, or many of us. 

The fact is, there are numerous reasons for our government, yes both parties turning a blind eye to illegal immigration. Some are economic, some are, based on the Left’s version of fairness. But at the heart of both illegal immigration, and the influx of Muslim “refugees” is the Left’s hatred of American sovereignty. If the Left believes anything at all, it believes America must be broken and remade. America was founded on every value and principle the Left abhors. Individual liberty, natural rights, free markets are all despised by the Left, which is Collectivist in nature. So, anything that alters America is and will be supported by the Left.

Immigration, of course is not the problem. Immigration sand assimilation IS the problem. The Left, of course sees assimilation as a bad thing. After all, bringing in immigrants who share America’s  Judeo-Christian values, and love of Individualism will not change America will it? Stressing assimilation is never going to really change what America is. Of course not. Your religion, or skin color do not matter so much if you share the basic American values of free markets, individual liberty, respect for the rights of others and self-determination. So, assimilation is undesirable according to the Left. Again, the Left is using immigration, both legal and illegal to change, yes fundamentally change America.

This issue, to me might be the most crucial reason we must never elect Hillary Clinton. We know what her immigration positions will be. Hillary is of the Left, she shares their values, and she will seek to do everything in her power to continue the Obama administration disastrous refugee and immigration policies. And yes, her policies will lead to more, not fewer terror attacks. If you do not believe me ask France how its immigration policies are working out. Or ask Germany, or Sweden. Of course, we must also consider how a President Hillary would respond to increased acts of Jihad. She would likely blame America, who else? And she would be certain to use such attacks to increase pressure for stricter gun laws, which would make us less safer still. She would likely lead a charge to punish “anti-Muslim” speech as well. Again, she, and the Left would eagerly use such a situation to further push their ultimate goal of altering America. Remember, the Left never allows a good crisis to, well you know the rest!

Another terror test run in France?

It does not look good

Via Daily Mail:

A car filled with gas cylinders was today found parked outside a synagogue in the south of France.

The suspicious vehicle was discovered by police officers after it was left near the Bar Yohaye synagogue in Marseille.

Dozens of worshippers were inside the building and were attending a service on Saturday morning.

The discovery comes just one week after a similar vehicle – also filled with gas cylinders – was left outside the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

A jihadi woman, 29, who is on a terror watch list, masterminded the plan and disappeared with her boyfriend, aged 34, last Sunday morning.

Her Peugeot 607 was found with its lights flashing in a no-parking zone in Paris’s Rue du Petit-Point, across the River Seine from Notre Dame, at 7.30am.

There were seven gas canisters inside – prompting fears of a terrorist attack on the ancient place of worship, which is high on a list of ISIS targets.

Three women were arrested and it was reported that they were allegedly planning to blow up the busy Gare du Lyon train station in Paris.

The Religion of Peace strikes again

Terrorism down under

SYDNEY — A French man shouting the Arabic phrase “Allahu akbar” stabbed a British woman to death and wounded two men in an attack at a hostel in northeast Australia, police said Wednesday.

The 29-year-old suspect did not have any known links to the Islamic State group and appeared to have acted alone, Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said. Police were trying to determine whether the man had been motivated by extremism, or something else.

Ah, motivation? Well listen to the killers battle cry

The man, a French national visiting Australia, shouted “Allahu akbar” — the Arabic phrase meaning “God is great” — both during the attack and while being arrested by police, Gollschewski said. He has not yet been charged, but police weren’t looking for any other suspects related to the incident.

I would suspect that might be a tiny clue, but, then again, I am not well versed in PC avoidance of reality

Obama Admin Hiding Info From Congress On $1.7B ‘Ransom Payment’ To Iran – Washington Free Beacon

The Obama administration is withholding from congressional leaders documents and information related to a $1.7 billion U.S. taxpayer funded payout to Iran earlier this year, furthering accusations the cash was part of a “ransom payment” to free U.S. hostages from Iranian custody, according to communications obtained by the Washington Free Beacon and conversations with lawmakers.

The controversy over this payment – which arose from the settlement of a longstanding legal dispute with Iran – has deepened in recent weeks after Iranian officials disclosed that nearly all of the U.S. money had been spent to strengthen Iran’s military.

Congressional efforts to compel the Obama administration to come clean about the payment have yet to yield results, prompting a separate effort to determine whether the White House overpaid Iran and is now withholding information that would prove this claim, according to documents obtained by the Free Beacon.

Lawmakers suspect that key records relating to the $1.7 billion payout were not properly maintained over the years and are now seeking to force the Obama administration to hand over the evidence.

The timing of the March legal settlement has raised questions on Capitol Hill among lawmakers who view it as part of the Obama administration’s effort to free 10 U.S. sailors who had been abducted by Iran. It also is suspected that the payout was another byproduct of last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

“Earlier this year, the administration announced a $1.7 billion settlement to a case that had been pending for 35 years before the [International Claims] Tribunal, claiming it was in the American public’s best interest to settle,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), one of the lawmakers spearheading the disclosure effort, told the Free Beacon…

Europe Crumbles: Support For Angela Merkel Plummets As EU’s Growing Divisions Laid Bare – Daily Express

The German Chancellor’s approval ratings have plummeted in the countries hit hardest by Brussels’ chaotic economic policies and the spiralling migrant crisis.

She is now viewed with “no confidence” by huge swathes of the European population at a time when the EU is facing potential oblivion in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

The results show a growing backlash against Germany from the rest of a bloc that feels Mrs Merkel has trashed their economies and unleashed huge levels of migration for her own country’s gain.

And the survey was carried out before Britain voted to leave the EU, with it likely that her approval ratings have sunk even lower still since the historic June 23 referendum.

Many southern European nations have suffered terrible hardship and depression following the imposition of the euro, which has fuelled an economic boom in Germany by driving down the cost of its exports.

Meanwhile many Balkan and eastern European countries blame Mrs Merkel for unleashing chaotic mass migration on their borders following her infamous welcome for the whole of the Middle East to settle in Germany.

The new poll, by the respected US Pew Research Center, shows that the German leader’s approval ratings are unsurprisingly lowest in Greece, which has been forced into abject austerity and poverty by Berlin…

Boris Johnson Says He Isn’t Seeking To Replace British Prime Minister David Cameron – Wall Street Journal
.

.
Late Wednesday, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, who teamed up to win the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, had their arms around each other, celebrating their victory at a Conservative Party fundraiser at the Hurlingham Club, a members-only hangout in West London.

Mr. Johnson, London’s former mayor, was hours away from formally entering the race to become the country’s next prime minister, with Mr. Gove, the current justice secretary, as his co-chair.

But the next morning – in a tumultuous turnabout – it was Mr. Gove who threw his hat in the ring, blindsiding Mr. Johnson.

Mr. Gove, who had long insisted he didn’t want, and wasn’t equipped for, the job, said he felt he had no choice. He said he had lost confidence in Mr. Johnson’s ability to form a team to lead the U.K. through its separation from the EU…

IRS Scandal: No End To Lois Lerner’s Lawlessness – Investor’s Business Daily

Justice: IRS official Lois Lerner didn’t merely target conservative groups to take away their tax-free status, as first suspected, but also handed over more than a million pages of tax returns to the Justice Department. That’s a crime.

It’s now apparent, if it wasn’t before, that the Internal Revenue Service – which was created solely to collect revenues due the government, not to persecute the administration’s political enemies – has become a kind of rogue agency.

Its chief, John Koskinen, is being threatened with impeachment for not telling the truth in testimony before Congress. But Lerner, more than even Koskinen, has become a symbol of IRS arrogance and illegality.

As Eliana Johnson of the National Review reported this week, Lerner transmitted some 1.25 million pages of tax returns of mostly Tea Party and conservative groups to the Justice Department in October 2010. In Johnson’s words, this was “likely the largest unauthorized disclosure of tax-return information in history.”

For some perspective, this took place at the start of a three-year period during which the same groups found their applications for tax-free status inexplicably held up, while those for liberal groups were more or less routinely rubber-stamped.

But the actual transmission of their tax returns as part of a fishing expedition by Lerner is the big problem here – because she also transmitted IRS Schedule B data, which includes the names and addresses of contributors to those conservative groups. That’s a big no-no…

Obama Admin Tells Florida Agencies To Deny Public Records Requests On Orlando Attack – Daily Caller

ISIS Terrorists Used Obama’s ‘Fast And Furious’ Gun During Paris Attack – Gateway Pundit

On the evening of 13 November 2015, ISIS linked terrorists slaughtered 130 people in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris.

The Islamists murdered 89 concertgoers at the Bataclan during a concert by the Eagles of Death Metal.

ISIS later released a poster of the Paris killers.

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks was from Phoenix where Obama allowed criminals and cartel members to buy thousands of guns in his Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

Judicial Watch reported:

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”.

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers. The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations – for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic – but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual…

Judge Upholds Voter Citizenship Checks – Washington Times

Kansas, Alabama and Georgia can demand their residents submit proof of citizenship before signing up to vote even if they’re using the federal government’s registration forms, a judge said Wednesday, delivering a win to states concerned about voter fraud.

The League of Women Voters and the Obama administration had tried to halt the practice, arguing that federal law doesn’t require an extensive citizenship check when people register to vote, and saying the three states were imposing an extra burden on voters.

But Judge Richard J. Leon said that while it may be an inconvenience to require proof of citizenship, and voter registration drives may have to do more work to get folks signed up, it’s not an insurmountable burden – and certainly less so than trying to explain Obamacare.

“The organizational plaintiffs and their members will undoubtedly have to expend some additional time and effort to help individuals,” Judge Leon wrote. “But let’s be candid: doing so pales in comparison to explaining to the average citizen how the [Affordable Care Act] or tax code works!”

Since the voter groups didn’t show a real and irreparable harm, he rejected their request for a preliminary injunction.

The ruling is the latest in a years-long struggle by some states to combat potential voter fraud by insisting voters prove they are citizens. In one Kansas count alone, officials count 25 instances of non-citizens attempting to register to vote.

“This is a very real problem and the only way to solve the problem is to require proof of citizenship on the front end,” said Kris W. Kobach, Kansas’ secretary of state…

A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the State Department to produce the e-mail records of Hillary Clinton’s scheduler during her tenure as secretary of state, expanding an investigation being pursued by conservative nonprofit Citizens United into the overlap between Clinton’s official travel and her meetings with foreign Clinton Foundation donors.

Citizens United is slated to receive all e-mails sent to and from Lona Valmoro, Clinton’s State Department scheduler, in the two-week periods before each of 14 international trips Clinton took during her four years in office. David Bossie, president of Citizens United, hopes to confirm suspicions that Clinton maintained an off-the-books schedule, meeting with Clinton Foundation donors on the taxpayer’s dime. “Citizens United wants to know how many overseas dinners Secretary Clinton attended with Clinton Foundation donors that didn’t make it on her schedule,” he says.

Judge Rosemary Collyer, the federal judge presiding over a public-records case brought by Citizens United, was initially hesitant to allow the release of Valmoro’s e-mails, and asked the group to provide one example of an off-the-books meeting with Clinton Foundation donors…

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan Faked Gay Hate Crime Injuries In Police Cell After Being Arrested For Vandalism – Daily Mirror

YouTuber Calum McSwiggan claimed to have been “beaten up” after he left a gay club in West Hollywood, but according to reports, officials have since rubbished his story.

Posting to his Instagram account, the 26-year-old vlogger – who runs a LGBT and lifestyle channel – shared a picture of his injuries as he recovered in a hospital bed after an alleged attack at a nightclub on Sunday night.

“After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys,” explained the caption.

But in a statement to The Advocate , Captain Holly Perez, from the West Hollywood Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, explained that officers had been “unable to substantiate the assault” and that the pictured injuries were self-inflicted inside his police cell.

The police statement explained that authorities found him with “no visible injuries” after the alleged attack and were forced to arrest him after they “observed him vandalising a car”.

It went on to describe how the YouTuber was booked and placed in a cell where he was “then observed injuring himself with the handle and receiver to a payphone inside the cell.”

Fox News Targeted By FEC Dems In First-Ever Vote To Punish Debate Sponsorship – Washington Examiner

Finally making good on long-harbored anger at conservative media, Democrats on the Federal Election Commission voted in secret to punish Fox News’ sponsorship of a Republican presidential debate, using an obscure law to charge the network with helping those on stage.

It is the first time in history that members of the FEC voted to punish a media outlet’s debate sponsorship, and it follows several years of Democratic threats against conservative media and websites like the Drudge Report.

The punishment, however, was blocked by all three Republicans on the commission, resulting in a 3-3 tie vote and no action. The vote was posted Thursday and is here.

A Republican FEC commissioner leading that fight, Lee E. Goodman, revealed the vote to Secrets Wednesday and said the official report of the May 26 executive vote will be released Thursday. It is here…
