Something useful did come out of the Comey circus

Some very valuable information came out. But the Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, could not care less. Their agenda is to delegitimize Trump, and block his agenda, period! Hundreds of terrorist investigations they care far less about

2,000 cases.

That was the most overlooked revelation to come from the testimony of the former FBI director. While the media parsed every Comey hiccup to bolster its election conspiracy theories, it ignored that number.

Comey stated that there were around 2,000 terrorism investigations. 1,000 of those came from “home grown violent extremism” with no evidence of contact with foreign terrorists. Another 1,000 had “some contact with foreign terrorists”. 300 from that 2,000 had come to America as refugees.

Two-thirds of the refugee terrorists were from Iraq. The other third were mainly from the six countries named in President Trump’s travel pause which left-wing activist judges have unconstitutionally halted.

Again, fighting terrorism is less important than smearing Trump to Democrats it seems. And such bastardism might lead us to become, Europe

In the UK, there are 3,000 potential terrorists being investigated, but 20,000 others had been “subjects of interest” in the past. We don’t know how large that second number is in the United States. But it’s probably not too far off the British one. In which case we also have over 20,000 potential terrorists.

But again, fighting Trump, and his common sense travel order is more important to Democrats than protecting this nation. If only they hated terrorists as much as they do Trump!

Did political correctness aid terrorism in Manchester?

Daniel Greenfield takes a long, hard look at the consequences of moral retardation

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester police were busy with more important things.

The Greater Manchester Police are one of only two police forces to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category. Earlier this year, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins honored Tell Mama for fighting Islamophobia. Tell Mama had lost funding earlier when its claims of a plague of violent Islamophobia fell apart.

Shahid Malik, the chair of Tell Mama, had been photographed with the leader of Hamas. Appearing at the Global Peace and Unity conference, where plenty of terrorism supporters have promenaded, he boasted, “In 2005 we had four Muslim MPs. In 2009 or 2010 we’ll have eight or ten Muslim MPs. In 2014 we’ll have 16 Muslim MPs. At this rate the whole parliament will be Muslim.”

Last year, Hopkins had appeared at a Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND) event at the European Islamic Centre along with Azad Ali. Ali has praised Anwar Al-Awlaki and other Al Qaeda figures. He justified the murder of British and American soldiers, he praised Hamas and Hezbollah. Instead of arresting him, the Chief Constable appeared at the same forum with a terrorist supporter.

Also present was Greater Manchester Police Crime Commissioner and Interim Mayor Tony Lloyd who came by to talk about “eradicating hate”. This was at an event attended by Anas Altikriti of the Cordoba Foundation, who had backed terrorists murdering British soldiers and accused Jews of dual loyalty.

Tony Lloyd will be the Labour candidate in Rochdale; home of the Muslim sex grooming cover-up.

Both Manchester Mayor Burnham and Chief Constable Ian Hopkins had appeared at MEND events. MEND’s Director of Engagement is Azad Ali.

After the attack, Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham vowed on camera, “terrorists will never beat us”. The terrorists don’t need to beat Burnham. He’ll eagerly collaborate without so much as a single slap.

Go read it all, and marvel at how the left’s obsession with egalitarianism, and “tolerance”, and their overwhelming fear of being accused of discrimination is making it easier for Jihadists to do their evil deeds.

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.

Team Obama approves of massive shipment of Uranium to Iran

i-see-stupid-people

Say it with me kids! What could possibly go wrong?

Obama can still inflict a great deal of damage between now and January 20 — and he appears bent on doing it:

Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.

If there is a Nobel Prize for sheer stupidity, trying to prevent the ayatollahs from building nuclear weapons by bribing them with uranium ought to win it.

Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium. U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.

He really does hate this coutry

Australian police thwart major terror attack

More here

Police have conducted a major counter terrorism operation in Melbourne which they say terror plotters allegedly planned to attack Flinders Street Station and Federation Square on Christmas Day.

Heavily armed police raided five homes across Flemington, Meadow Heights, Dallas, Campbellfield and Gladstone Park.

Seven were arrested as a result of those search warrants and five are still in custody and due to face court in the afternoon.

Victorian Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said five people were in custody being questioned in relation to the attack on Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and St Paul’s cathedral.

‘We’ve had an investigation that’s been running now for couple of weeks. As a result of the investigation, we believe we have neutralised that threat. In relation to that threat, we believe that there was an intention to conduct what we call a multimode attack, possibly on Christmas Day.’

Mr Ashton said there was no intelligence to suggest there were any threats to other events and believed the plotters planned to use an explosion and other weapons in the attack.

‘We believe it was certainly going to involve an explosive event,’ Mr Ashton said.

 

Thank God they caught those planning this latest atrocity

Selective Outrage Syndrome anyone?

Oh that Prince Charles, and his ears just beg to be mocked. Recently the Prince developed outrage over what he calls “anti-immigrant” sentiments

LONDON — The heir to Britain’s throne spoke out Thursday, saying the wave of anti-immigrant populism sweeping the world has “deeply disturbing echoes” of the Nazis’ persecution of Jews in the 1930s.

Prince Charles, the queen’s eldest son, said his parents’ generation “fought and died in a battle against intolerance, monstrous extremism and an inhuman attempt to exterminate the Jewish population of Europe.

“That nearly 70 years later we should still be seeing such evil persecution is to me beyond all belief,” he added. “We owe it to those who suffered and died so horribly not to repeat the horrors of the past.”

Wait, what? Did he actually say we are seeing the same type of evil persecutions the Nazis committed? So, there are concentration camps in Europe? People are being gassed? Of course not, but Chuckles is a Leftist, and he must therefore go way overboard with the emotionalistic rhetoric because #Caring

Surely raw, unworthy hatred for immigrants is a terrible thing. But much of what is going on across the Atlantic, and here, is that people are increasingly tired of immigration laws being rendered meaningless.They are also tired of any hint of national pride being demonized as extreme, or Nazi-like. The fact is much of the issue is with immigration without assimilation. Immigrants who do not care to even try becoming an American, German, Italian etc. is unhealthy for the nation they move to. Immigration without assimilation is a death sentence for the nation accepting such immigrants. Yet, prince Charles fails to see this basic truth. He shows no outrage for immigrants who refuse to integrate themselves into their new home.

He also shows no outrage at the many acts of terror, rapes, sexual assaults, and intimidation many Muslim “refugees” are committing against the Swedes, Germans, French, etc. Where is his outrage at the way far too many European women are being treated by these Muslim refugees? Where is his outrage at what Muslim refugees think about Islamizing Germany?

A translator at refugee camps in Germany has claimed Muslim migrants hate Christians and want to Islamize the country.

The woman, 39, from Eritrea, came to Germany as a refugee herself in 1991, before volunteering at asylum centers to “give something back.”

But the Arabic speaker said what she discovered when working with migrants over the last five years shocked her.

During her time at a number of centers across the country, she said she discovered Muslim refugees preaching “pure hatred” of Christians.

Muslim children were told by their parents not to play with Christian kids.

And she herself was told it was a sin for her to help feed and defend Christians.

She told German Catholic website Kath.net: “They want Germany to be Islamized. They despise our country and our values.”

I suppose this is not worthy of the selective outrage of Prince Charles. He is willingly blind to behavior that is far worse than being “anti-immigrant”

The Toronto Star titled their account of the story:  “Ontario facing ‘epidemic of Islamophobia’ survey finds”. The article did not discuss possible reasons for the attitude of Ontarians, which just may be based on real occurrences with real victims. Some examples: i) Sweden has now become the rape capital of the world; ii) a thousand women were sexually assaulted in Germany as the migrant rape crisis worsens; iii) the 70,000 crimes committed or attempted by migrants in Germany, iv) the declaration by the Islamic State that they have infiltrated the refugees and will continue to do so.

There were also the stories the media covered up, about Muslim “refugees” threatening a Minnesota community with rape, and the incident involving the sexual harassment of teen girls by refugee men at a high school in New Brunswick.

Not all Muslim migrants are criminals. Among them are decent human beings who have gone through hellish experiences, and they need help. But Western media and authorities are also providing cover for jihadists and Muslim migrant criminals, at the expense of innocents who elected them in trust.

It is reprehensible that the entirely warranted caution and fears about Muslim migrant violence that are expressed by hardworking, taxpaying citizens of Canada (and in other Western nations) are brushed aside and deemed “islamophobic”. Authorities are failing their citizenry.

Indeed the hearts of decent people break for most of the refugees. But allowing massive numbers of unvetted people into your nation is no solution. And when a significant number of those people do not share your national culture and values, it is a very destructive thing. It is a vital role of governments to decide who enters their nation, and who can stay and become a citizen. Indeed one of America’s great blessings has been immigrants. But those immigrants must WANT to come here to learn our language, laws, and embrace our culture. E Pluribus Unum means out of many, one. Many different ethnicities, races, religions, etc have come here and have assimilated. That is healthy and wonderful. But, there is danger in simply saying OK, everyone come in

President-Elect Donald Trump is right: Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Somali refugee who went on a Palestinian-inspired jihad-rampage with a car and a knife, wounding 11 people at Ohio State University last Monday, “should not have been in our country.”

Artan is but one of an unknown number of Muslim refugees who have been allowed into the country through a deliberately flawed screening system that was established by the Obama administration.

Earlier this year, Amman’s refugee resettlement center coordinator at the American Embassy in Jordan, Gina Kassem, admitted that at least 600 refugees had been interviewed each day, hastily, since the center opened in 2015.  Moreover, to achieve the goal set by Obama to increase the flow of refugees to the U.S., the center has not been excluding anyone or “look[ing] for families with certain education background, language skills or other socio-economic factors [or] cut family sizes.”  It is safe to assume that similar actions have been taken by U.S. refugee resettlement coordinators elsewhere.

Where is your outrage Prince Charles? Or are Western lives expendable in your quest for “equality”?

Even if the interviews took longer, how could any U.S. agency involved with the screening of refugees requesting to resettle here check the background of Artan and his family, who reportedly claimed to be a Somalis, who had spent seven years in Pakistan?  Why were the teenage Artan, his mother, and his siblings allowed into the U.S.?  Islamic terrorist activities make both Somalia and Pakistan high-risk countries, and all applicants for immigration to the U.S. should have gone through most rigorous screening.

While White House press secretary Josh Earnest kept reassuring reporters: “This vetting of refugee applicants involves collecting biometric info, doing in-person interviews, doing background checks, running their info through a variety of national security and international databases,” it became clear that it is enough to be “a Muslim refugee” to fit into Obama’s plan to resettle the U.S. with Muslims.

And, truth be told, it seems that Christian refugees are not as likely to be admitted, why?

But the numbers tell a different story: The United States has accepted 10,801 Syrian refugees, of whom 56 are Christian. Not 56 percent; 56 total, out of 10,801. That is to say, one-half of 1 percent.

Somewhere between a half million and a million Syrian Christians have fled Syria, and the United States has accepted 56. Why?

“This is de facto discrimination and a gross injustice,” Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, told Fox News. Fox notes another theory: The United States takes refugee referrals from the U.N. refugee camps in Jordan, and there are no Christians there.

Again, one of the most essential duties of government IS to protect its citizens, and to control immigration. It is not an easy job, especially when so many in governments across the West seem incapable of common sense. Again, Prince Charles, where is your outrage for Maria Ladenburger?

The brutal rape and murder of a 19-year-old German woman, Maria Ladenburger, apparently by Afghan migrant who claims to be 17 years old, seems to have been the last nail in the coffin of Merkel’s open-door migrant policy, which she had promised to not to let go even after extreme opposition from within her own party’s leadership.

Ladenburger had been a medical student volunteering at a migrant housing facility. Her murderer had reportedly seen her in the shelter. The incident set off shockwaves not only in the Germany but also across Europe, especially after promises by Germany’s interior ministry to deport as many Afghan citizens as possible after failing to confirm any credible claims for asylum.

In the meanwhile, authorities in Berlin last weekend announced the arrest of an Afghan citizen who was actively involved in terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, while living part-time in Germany.

German police a few weeks back also launched an operation against a Salafist group in the country, whose members were brainwashing Muslim youths, mostly in Germany, to get jihadist training and join the Islamic State’s battle against the world in Syria and Iraq.

The Salafist organization had registered itself as a social work entity under the cover of distributing the Quran in markets and public places, and claiming to be bridging the gap between the West and Islam.

One suspect was arrested in Aschaffenburg and another was detained in Mannheim, on the allegation of plotting an Islamically motivated attack on a public place.

This recent shift in strategy is also a lesson that the West has learnt a bit too late, despite having experienced similar assaults not that long ago by the Nazis, Mussolini, Lenin, Stalin as well as terror organizations such as Baader Meinhof, al-Shebaab, ETA, the Red Brigades, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah, to name just a few.

Since the unprecedented terror attacks in France, Belgium and Germany, citizens across the Europe have been living in constant fear. They seem to be sick and tired of the Muslim extremists; children might be in danger on their way to school, and shopping takes place under the protection of soldiers.

Outrage you say Prince Charles? Or is it Selective Outrage?

So, how much cash has Team Obama given to the Iranians anyway?

Whatever the amount, understand that people will die because of this horrendously stupid administration and its morally bankrupt actions

The $1.7 billion Obama illegally paid to the terrorists running Iran in exchange for hostages is only the beginning of his largesse:

Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.

Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.

A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.

Most or all of this money will be spent on terrorism and Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

As I said, yes, people will be killed by terrorist acts funded with this money! Yes, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and yes, many Muslims as well. The victims, frankly, will come from every possible demographic, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or race. But, I must suppose that those lives are worth it to Dear Leader somehow

But at least Obama got Iran to secure his legacy by agreeing to the nuclear treaty that was not ratified by the Senate as the Constitution requires. Hereis how that treaty is going:

[T]he International Atomic Energy Agency said in a review issued Thursday that Iran had begun manufacturing rotor tubes for centrifuges, the spinning machines used to enrich uranium. …

The agency needs to keep a close eye on how many rotor tubes are being made and for what models of centrifuges to make sure they are being produced only in quantities and for machines allowed under the 2015 nuclear agreement that sets a schedule for when and how many advanced centrifuges can be tested. …

A senior diplomat familiar with the nuclear deal … said he could not verify reports that the six powers exempted some amounts of low-enriched uranium and facilities from the deal’s scope to allow Iran to be in compliance with the pact from the beginning of implementation in January.

So, we have paid billions, yes billions, most of it if not all in untraceable cash, which will be given to terrorists, who will slaughter innocents. The rest will be used to allow Iran to build, and eventually use nuclear weapons. So, this venture will not avoid war, or deter war. Instead it will lead to a much bigger, and more costly war. Fools, it seems never learn from history.

We must also remember that Iran has been allowed to threaten our Naval vessels, and on one occasion to seize one and hold our sailors. Let me say that would never happen if we had a president who put our country first. If I were Commander in Chief, every one of my commanders, in every branch, would have standing orders. They would have my permission and blessing to meet every threat with whatever force they deemed necessary to protect those under their command. And they would also know that I, as the Commander in Chief would have their back! And every nation on earth would know any military that sought to threaten our forces would be responsible for the results.

In short, my foreign policy in regards to our security would be Speak softly, carry the biggest stick, and to use that stick with no uncertainty, no reservations, and with such overwhelming force that every nation would look at us with respect, and would know never to threaten us or our closest allies. They would know never to confuse our inherent kindness with weakness or vacillation. They would know that we are not only capable, but willing to put down any threat to our people.

French Police foil terror plot

Thank God

Police in Paris made several arrests on Wednesday morning in connection with an apparent terror plot that involved an abandoned car next to the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The vehicle was left this weekend outside of the medieval church, which is one of the most popular landmarks and tourist attractions in Paris. Police were alerted to the Peugeot 607 because it had no registration plates and was flashing its hazard lights, and even though they didn’t find an explosive device, they discovered seven full canisters of gas inside the vehicle.

Anti-terror officials told France 24 that they traced the vehicle to its owner, and have made at least two arrests over the incident. The car’s owner was reported as having been on a watch list of suspected religious extremists, and documents written in Arabic were also found inside the car.

“We think he may have been trying to carry out a test-run,” one official stated, according to BBC.

Here’s How Tonight’s Presidential Forum Between Trump And Clinton Will Work – Daily Caller

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will participate in their first joint event as presidential candidates Wednesday night.

NBC News and MSNBC – along with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America – will host the the Commander-in-Chief Forum in New York City. It will be a one-hour forum where Clinton and Trump will answer questions about national security, military affairs and veterans issues in front of an audience mainly made up of 300 or so members of the military.

Matt Lauer – who is listed as a “notable past member” on the Clinton Global Initiative’s website – is moderating the forum. During an interview on MSNBC Wednesday, Lauer said he will not ask Trump and Clinton the same questions.

“I’m not going to be repeating the same questions, though some will overlap,” Lauer said. “The veterans will get a chance to ask these candidates their own questions.”

Lauer said that when he takes questions from the audience, he expects most of them to revolve around the system-wide failure of the Veterans Affairs program.

“Lack of treatment – that’s where I think they will focus their questions.”

Clinton will be asked questions first for approximately 30 minutes, then Trump will go on stage next.

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…

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.”

It comes after Calum took to Instagram on Monday to reveal his injuries, which he used as purported evidence of the alleged attack…

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…

Pro-Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Taunts E.U. Parliament: ‘You’re Not Laughing Now’ – Washington Post

Tensions between the European Union and Britain, as well as within the country itself, spilled over to Brussels on Tuesday, as Nigel Farage, the leader of the right-wing populist U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), told assembled members of the European Parliament that the E.U. was “in denial” about its failure and the fact that it was falling apart.

“When I came here 17 years ago and said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me,” Farage said in a speech that was carried live by TV channels in Britain and across Europe.

“Well, you’re not laughing now, are you?” Farage said. He continued to predict that the U.K. would not be the last nation to leave the European Union.

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, had to calm jeering parliamentarians after Farage told them: “Most of you have never done a proper job in your lives.”

Schulz accused MPs of “acting like UKIP,” but also criticized Farage for his lack of respect.

Farage’s provocations did not go unanswered.

“I am surprised that you are here,” Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, told Farage in parliament. “You were fighting for the exit. The British people have voted in favor of the exit. Why are you here?” European MPs reacted with applause and cheers to Juncker’s speech…

Corrupt Clinton Aide Rigged The Benghazi Accountability Review Board – 100PercentFedUp

The big question in all this corruption is why these people aren’t in jail! The collusion between Cheryl Mills and Hillary Clinton had to be there. Is there anyone out there who REALLY believes that Clinton isn’t culpable in all this? This entire thing is sickening!

Remember the Accountability Review Board, appointed in the wake of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans in September 2012? The ARB, headed by former ambassador Thomas Pickering, provided the first attempt at oversight over the State Department’s actions in Benghazi and Libya following the sacking of the American consulate. Pickering’s probe didn’t bother to interview State officials of higher rank, such as Hillary Clinton, and tried to lay the responsibility on low-level staffers instead.

According to the new majority report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi, that may not have been a coincidence. The report accuses longtime Hillary aide Cheryl Mills of undue influence over the ARB, from the composition of the committee to access to information and witnesses, Politico reports:

Cheryl Mills, the longtime attorney, friend and former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, influenced the findings of an internal State Department review of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a draft of the final House Benghazi Committee report.

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents reviewed by the board and helped edit the final report.

“The decisions to deviate from longstanding processes raise questions about the board’s independence, thoroughness and therefore the fullness of their findings of accountability,” the report reads…

More Than 2,000 Illegal Aliens Were Released From Prison Onto American Streets Last Year – Gateway Pundit

Liberals love to claim Obama has been tough on immigration and has deported tons of illegals but the facts tell a different story.

A new report from FOX News indicates that thousands of illegals who should have been deported after getting out of prison were allowed to stay for some reason:

Obama administration pressed to deport illegal immigrant ex-cons

More than 2,000 illegal immigrants were turned loose on American streets after serving prison sentences last year – often because their home countries refused to take them back – and many subsequently committed crimes including rape and murder, a key lawmaker charged Monday.

The claim, by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, comes a week after a federal audit blamed the Department of Homeland Security and an uncooperative Haiti for an illegal immigrant being freed to kill a Connecticut woman.

Grassley, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the Obama administration to put renewed pressure on countries that won’t take back their own criminals after they have been ticketed for deportation.

“Dangerous criminals, including murderers, are being released every day because their home countries will not cooperate in taking them back,” Grassley wrote in a June 27 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson…

Benghazi Report: Wardrobe Concern Stunted Rescue, Cover-Up Started While Victims Still Alive – The Lid

The official report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, offered proof of what America already knew about the attack, but more importantly added shocking details about the lack of leadership during that attack which led to the death of two of the four victims, and that the Administration was already working on a cover-up during the attack, when Ambassador Stevens was missing and not yet reported dead, and at least two of the four victims were still on the roof of the compound (Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods) fighting for their lives.

The official 800 page committee report issued Tuesday came just a few hours after a politically motivated report released by the Democrats which referred to Donald Trump more times than two of the Benghazi victims.

While the report does find fault with Clinton and the State Department, it does not focus on her just as committee Chairman Trey Gowdy promised. The report is a chronology of the events of the lead-up to the attack, the attack itself and the aftermath. Additionally, the committee interviewed more than 80 people, and reviewed thousands of pages of new documents not available to any prior investigation.

Along with finding fault in some the State Department and Hillary Clinton’s actions the report criticizes the CIA saying it “missed the looming threat despite warnings and wrote faulty intelligence reports after the attack. The findings will also indicate that the Defense Department did not meet its response times to deploy military assets to Benghazi and follow up to ensure Americans were rescued in a timely fashion.”

It is not surprising that the report says the story the Administration told America, that terrorist attack in Benghazi was incited by a lousy Mohammed video on YouTube, was a fabrication invented by the Obama Administration political team and had nothing to do with the ongoing live reports the state department was getting from Benghazi during the attack…

Open Borders Zealot Zuckerberg Angers Neighbors By Building Massive Wall Around His Home – Doug Ross Journal

For years, Kilauea, Kauai resident Gy Hall has enjoyed the view of the ocean and the breeze along Koolau Road. Then, a few weeks ago, a crew started to build a wall which happens to belong to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Hall said. “It’s really sad that somebody would come in, and buy a huge piece of land and the first thing they do is cut off this view that’s been available and appreciative by the community here for years.”

Hall said the wall extends along Koolau Road, near mile marker 20, and is about six-feet tall. He said its projected length and completion are unclear.

Multiple attempts by TGI to contact Shawn Smith, former Falk Partners manager, who Hall says sold some of the $200 million, 700-plus-acre property to the billionaire, were unsuccessful Friday.

Shosana Chantara, a Kilauea resident, voiced her concerns about the breeze that’s being obstructed.

“It’s hot behind that wall. Because it’s up on a berm, there’s not a breath of air on this side from the ocean,” Chantara said. “You take a solid wall that’s 10 or more feet above the road level; the breeze can’t go through.”

Another Kilauea resident, Donna Mcmillen, calls the wall a “monstrosity.”

The island of Kauai is a masterpiece of natural beauty.

That Zuckerberg would both build a security wall and despoil one of the most spectacular islands in the world would shame a normal person, but not – of course – any Democrat…

European Superstate To Be Unveiled: EU Nations ‘To Be Morphed Into One’ Post-Brexit – Daily Express

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

The plot has sparked fury and panic in Poland – a traditional ally of Britain in the fight against federalism – after being leaked to Polish news channel TVP Info.

The public broadcaster reports that the bombshell proposal will be presented to a meeting of the Visegrad group of countries – made up of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia – by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier later today.

Excerpts of the nine-page report were published today as the leaders of Germany, France and Italy met in Berlin for Brexit crisis talks.

In the preamble to the text the two ministers write: “Our countries share a common destiny and a common set of values that give rise to an even closer union between our citizens. We will therefore strive for a political union in Europe and invite the next Europeans to participate in this venture.”…

A video taken at a transgender pride march in San Francisco shows participants in the march burning an American flag. The video was recorded by Twitter user “Mx Emily A Rose,” who later clarified that she was not an active participant in the burning but simply recorded the act.

Transgender people in the U.S. have many more rights here than they do in many other countries, and are freely able to march and assemble as they did in San Francisco without fear of being put into jail for doing so. Not all LGBT people can say that.

CIA Weapons Shipped To Jordan For Syrian Rebels Stolen, Sold On Black Market – Reuters

Weapons shipped into Jordan for Syrian rebels by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia were stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, the New York Times reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, according to a joint investigation by the New York Times and Al Jazeera. (nyti.ms/292MmdH)

A Jordanian officer shot dead two U.S. government security contractors, a South African trainer and two Jordanians at a U.S.-funded police training facility near Amman before being killed in a shootout, Jordanian authorities had said in November.

The training facility was set up on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq to help rebuild the shattered country’s postwar security forces and to train Palestinian Authority police officers.

The weapons used in the shooting had originally arrived in Jordan for the Syrian rebel training program, the paper reported, citing American and Jordanian officials.

Theft of the weapons, which ended months ago after complaints by the American and Saudi governments, has led to a flood of new weapons available on the arms black market, the New York Times said.

Jordanian officers who were part of the plan “reaped a windfall” from sale of weapons, using the money to buy iPhones, SUVs and other luxury items, according to the paper, which cited Jordanian officials.

USSC Vacates Republican Governor McDonnell’s Corruption Convictions – Richmond Times-Dispatch

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday tossed out former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s 11 corruption convictions, narrowing what it called the government’s “boundless” interpretation of federal bribery law.

Illegal Alien Activists Shut Down Atlanta Highway To Stop Deportations – 100PercentFedIp

Once again, the illegal activists have decided to flex muscles and shut down entire highways and streets. do they really think Obama will deport them? Not happening!

Immigrant-rights activists attempted to block the road to federal immigration agents’ headquarters in Atlanta on Monday, demanding President Obama stop deporting any more illegal immigrants after last week’s Supreme Court stalemate.

Led by the Not1More campaign, which webcast the protest, the demonstrators called Mr. Obama to hamstring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the deportation agency, saying it’s up to the administration to protect illegal immigrants now.

“We are defending the security and stability of our families, sending a direct message to the Obama Administration,” said Carlos Medina, a member of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. “We know that he has the ability to stop deportations at any given time. Our fight will not stop.”

The Supreme Court issued a tie ruling last week that left in place a lower court’s injunction blocking Mr. Obama’s broad amnesty program, which would have granted tentative legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants.

Released Criminal Aliens Committed Nearly 10 Times More Crimes Than Obama Admin. Told Congress – Daily Insider

The Obama Administration “grossly misrepresented” the number of crimes the criminal aliens it released from custody in FY 2014 subsequently committed by nearly tenfold, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) charges.

According to FAIR, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) records the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) request on FAIR’s behalf reveal that the 30,558 criminal aliens ICE released in FY 2014 committed 13,288 additional crimes.

The number of subsequent convictions contained in FIOA documents is far higher than the 1,423 additional offenses ICE reported to the House Judiciary Committee last July.

The criminal aliens released in FY 2014 who went on to commit those additional crimes had convictions for offenses like homicide, kidnapping, assault, sexual assault, and drunk driving. The new crimes, according to ICE’s report to Congress, included vehicular homicide, domestic violence, sexual assault, DUI, burglary and assault.

“Rather than end dangerous politically-driven policies that have put a total of 85,000 deportable criminal aliens back onto the streets in the last three years, ICE tried to hide them by providing grossly inaccurate information to Congress and the American people,” Dan Stein, the president of FAIR, said in statement.

In April, ICE revealed that it released an additional 19,723 criminal aliens -who had a total of 64,197 convictions among them including 101 homicide convictions, 216 kidnapping convictions, 320 sexual assault convictions, 1,728 assault convictions, and 12,307 driving under the influence of alcohol convictions – from custody in FY 2015…

Home Intruder Craps Pants, Gets Shot – Washington Free Beacon

A Florida man is recovering in the hospital after breaking into a woman’s home, soiling himself, and getting shot by the homeowner.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office was called to a Ocala, Florida home on Sunday after a break in was reported, according to the Ocala Post. Police said they found Victor Alex Etherington naked, covered in his own feces, and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The intruder allegedly began knocking on the home’s kitchen windows demanding to be let in. When the 54-year-old woman inside refused to let him in, police say he kicked in the front door. At that point the victim ran upstairs to her bedroom, called 911, and grabbed her .22 caliber handgun.

“The suspect then followed her upstairs to the bedroom at which time she locked herself in the bedroom closet. The suspect forced entry into the bedroom, took off his shorts, (which he had defecated in) and forced entry into the closet where the victim was hiding,” a police deputy told News13.

Clinton Foundation “Hacked By Russians”, “Foundation Vulnerabilities” Document Leaked – Zero Hedge

Moments ago the newswires lit up with news that the Clinton Foundation was among the organizations breached by suspected Russian hackers in a dragnet of the U.S. political apparatus ahead of the Nov. election, Bloomberg reports.

As Bloomberg adds, the attacks on the foundation’s network, as well as those of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, compound concerns about her digital security even as the FBI continues to investigate her use of a personal e-mail server while she was secretary of state.

A spokesman for the foundation, Brian Cookstra, said he wasn’t aware of any breach. The compromise of the foundation’s computers was first identified by government investigators as recently as last week, the people familiar with the matter said. Agents monitor servers used by hackers to communicate with their targets, giving them a back channel view of attacks, often even before the victims detect them.

That’s the official version, and one which accurately focuses on the porous security at both the DNC and Clinton Foundation servers.

What really happened is that earlier today, the infamous hacker Guccifer2 – who as we reported previously, revealed himself as the individual who penetrated the DNC server (which was also blamed on Russian hackers) and revealed to the world the DNC’s “attack files” on Donald Trump, among others, including the Clinton mega donors – released another data dump which he titled as the “Dossier on Hillary Clinton from DNC.”

The Insidious Power Of The Media Disinformation Campaign For Hillary Clinton – American Thinker
.

The conservative radio personality, Chris Plante (WMAL, Washington, DC) opines that the most insidious power of the media is their power to ignore. While it is certainly true that the chief editor of a major newspaper or the producer of a network newscast has the ability to spike or kill a story, which is essentially their way of “ignoring” the news if you will, what is more subtle, deceitful – and dare I suggest corrupt – is their penchant to frame a story to fit a specific narrative. They no longer report the news, but they do shape a message.

There is not a finer example of the media ignoring the facts and shaping a message than what we are witnessing regarding Hillary Clinton’s email server, the classified material on that server, as well as the case of the missing emails. The media have embraced the Clinton campaign’s narrative that there is “nothing to see here,” that there wasn’t some “mishandling email controversy,” at most, or repeat Secretary Clinton’s own bogus statement, “using a personal e-mail was permissible” as “other Secretaries of State did the same thing.” Other excuses have been thrown against the wall to see if something will stick, such as, she was “trying to protect her privacy” or “she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer.”…

DOJ Backtracks And Releases Unredacted Transcript Of Orlando Shooter’s Calls To Police – Business Insider

The FBI and the Department of Justice released an unredacted transcript of the Orlando shooter’s phone conversations with police on the night of the massacre after facing backlash for leaving out the gunman’s references to ISIS in an earlier version of the transcript.

“We have re-issued the complete transcript to include these references in order to provide the highest level of transparency possible under the circumstances,” the DOJ said in a statement released on Monday afternoon.

US Attorney General Loretta Lynch told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday that the transcript would be “partial” and omit the group’s name.

“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Lynch said. “We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to ISIS].”

But critics were quick to accuse the FBI of trying to downplay Mateen’s sympathies for the extremist group by omitting its name from the transcript.

“Selectively editing this transcript is preposterous,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement on Monday. “We know the shooter was a radical Islamist extremist inspired by ISIS. We also know he intentionally targeted the LGBT community. The administration should release the full, unredacted transcript so the public is clear-eyed about who did this, and why.”

The gunman, who has since been identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, spoke to a 911 dispatcher and crisis negotiators as he carried out his attack on the Orlando nightclub Pulse on June 12, which left 49 people dead and more than 50 others wounded…

British Sniper Takes Out Two ISIS Bombers With One Shot, Saving Hundreds Of Lives – Daily Caller

A British Special Air Service (SAS) sniper took out two Islamic State bombers with a single shot, saving hundreds of lives in the process.

The SAS sniper took his shot from just over half a mile away, killing the terrorist driver in a split second.

But the story doesn’t end there. The bullet passed through the driver’s head and also hit his accomplice in the neck – an incredible feat, given these two targets were moving. The shot was one of the best in SAS history, according to an SAS source who spoke with the Daily Star Sunday.

“If the sniper had missed a lot of people would have lost their lives,” the SAS source said.

The ISIS driver and his passenger were on their way last month to a detonation site in Libya, where they planned to set off a car bomb and kill hundreds at a Tripoli marketplace. A local Libyan intelligence agent passed over information regarding the coming plot to the British, who promptly got their assets in play to put a stop to the massacre.

The SAS sniper took out his 338 Lapua Magnum rifle and fired two shots off-target to help give him an idea of the wind and speed of the car. Then, aiming carefully, he fired a single round, which hit the driver in the head and caused the car to veer off the road and crash. Libyan soldiers stepped in and fired a hail of machine gun fire on the car, detonating the bomb in the vehicle and causing a massive explosion.

Unfortunately, there are up to 20 British fighters in Libya who have declared loyalty to ISIS…

In comments from the bench, a visibly frustrated Judge Emmet Sullivan complained about the fragmentary way that new revelations about Clinton’s email use have come to light – largely through press reports and leaks and her shifting explanations for why she set up the server in her New York home rather than use an official “.gov” account when she was secretary of state.

“This is a constant drip… That’s what we’re having here, you know, and it needs to stop,” Sullivan said. He ruled that Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that had brought a lawsuit seeking answers about Clinton’s email server, could question six officials and top Clinton aides about why the email system was set up in the first place and how it was used. Transcripts of those interviews must be made public…

Activists Plan ‘World’s Largest Fart-In’ During Hillary’s DNC Speech – American Mirror

Far-left activists aren’t going away quietly – or with a pleasant aroma.

Cheri Honkala, head of Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, is organizing the world’s largest ‘fart-in’ to be held on July 28 at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated Democratic nomination acceptance speech.

“We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” Honkala says, TruthDig reports.

“We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”

Activists have invited Bernie Sanders to join their bean supper, which Honkala has dubbed “Beans for Hillary.”

“Any remaining beans will be served to the homeless, although we will, of course, be urging Sanders delegates to eat as much as possible,” she says.

Leftist author Chris Hedges will be offering a “nondemoniational” prayer at the dinner.

“I am happy to bless a meal that will be put to such effective political use,” Hedges says, according to TruthDig…

Liberal Site Becomes Internet Laughingstock After Writing About ‘Grenade Launcher’ Mod To AR-15 – Independent Journal Review
.

In the wake of the Orlando shooting, countless media outlets have tried to explain what an AR-15 rifle does and how it works.

Independent Journal Review reporter Joe Perticone recently debunked certain misconceptions about the gun, including the myth that it’s an assault rifle and can fire 700 rounds in a minute, which Congressman Alan Grayson (D-Florida) told a CNN anchor last week.

Now, Vox has attempted to explain the AR-15, still referring to it as an “assault” rifle.

There’s just one problem, Vox obtained the above graphic from the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, an anti-gun group, which identified a 37mm launcher as a “grenade launcher.”…

Belgian Authorities Arrest 12 In Major Anti-Terror Raid – CNS

Belgian authorities have raided dozens of homes and arrested 12 suspects in a major anti-terror investigation which they said required “immediate intervention,” fearing an attack could have been close.

Across Belgium parties were being planned Saturday to watch live broadcasts of the country’s soccer team playing Ireland at the European Championships in neighboring France and some media said such events could have been the targets.

Prime Minister Charles Michel said the nation would remain “extremely vigilant, hour by hour,” but that the terror level across the nation would remain at the second-highest level, meaning a threat of an attack “is possible and likely.” Belgium has been living under such a threat level since the Nov. 22 attacks on the Brussels subway and airport which killed 32.

“It will be the case in the coming hours that we will take additional and adapted measures,” said Michel after a meeting of the nation’s security council. He refused to elaborate on the nature of the threat.

The federal prosecutor’s office said Saturday that homes and car ports were searched in 16 municipalities, mostly in and around Brussels. The statement said there were no major incidents during the raids and that no arms or explosives were found.

It said 40 people were taken for interrogation, of which 12 were arrested, and a judge will rule on their continued detention later Saturday…

“Something Is Going On”, And It’s Worse Than You Thought – Justin Raimondo

I used to wonder why in the heck right-wing commentators on Fox News kept repeating the same mantra over and over again: sitting through the Republican debates, my eyes glazed over when I heard each and every candidate denounce the Obama administration for refusing to say the Sacred Words: “radical Islamic terrorism.” What are these people talking about, I thought to myself: they’re obsessed!

In short, I wrote it off as Fox News boilerplate, until the other day when, in the wake of the Orlando massacre, Donald Trump said the following on Fox: “Something is going on. He doesn’t get it, or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other.” Reiterating this trope later on in the same show, he averred that the President “is not tough, not smart – or he’s got something else in mind.”

The Beltway crowd went ballistic. Lindsey Graham had a hissy fit, and other Republican lawmakers started edging away from the presumptive GOP nominee. The Washington Post ran a story with the headline: “Donald Trump Suggests President Obama Was Involved With Orlando Shooting.”…

Illegals Flood Border; Already Worse Than 2015 – Universal Free Press

According to new statistics just released by the Department of Homeland Insecurity, so far this year, the number of illegal alien families invading the United States has is already exceeding the total number for all of 2015. Proving that contrary to the current Democratic administration, the border problems are anything but under control and continue to grow daily.

The new figures say that 6,788 invaders traveling as families were caught on the southwest border in May – a leap of more than 20 percent over April, and putting the total for the first eight months of the fiscal year at nearly 45,000 illegal invaders that have violated our borders.

That number is well in excess of the 2015 yearlong total of less than 40,000, though it is a slight improvement over the record pace set in 2014. At that time, the Obama administration allowed a massive invasion of over 50,000 illegals to flood the border in just one month. That is when Americans really started to understand just how ineffective the Obama administrations program to stop the flood really is.

Since that time, the Federal and local authorities have struggled trying to explain the latest surge in families, rather than figuring out how to stop the flow. In a recent attempt to explain the problem, a government lawyer told a federal judge earlier this month, that the Obama administration’s own lax enforcement policies, set in part by the courts, have enticed ever more people to make the harrowing journey. Something that only a change in administration will be able to fix.

The Justice Department’s immigration-law expert even told the judge that Illegal immigrants are abducting children on their trip north, hoping to pose as families to take advantage of the lax policies…

‘That Is Not My Question’: Trey Gowdy Absolutely Grills DHS Official On Second Amendment, Due Process – The Blaze

Last December, Rep.

In light of the recent terrorist attack in Orlando, Gowdy re-posted the video of his back-and-forth with DHS Deputy Assistant Secretary, Kelli Ann Burriesci, to his personal Facebook page.

To combat the common liberal call for gun control that follows terror attacks, Gowdy reminded a confused Burriesci that the right of every U.S. citizen to own a firearm is is affirmed in the Constitution, and that there’s a certain “process” that takes place before that right is stripped.

“What process is currently afforded an American citizen before they go on that list?” Gowdy said.

Burriesci denied that such a process exists. She casually added, however, that those who “feel that they are unduly placed on that list” can just “petition the government” to be removed.

“Yes, there is,” Gowdy contended. “When I say ‘process,’ I’m actually using half of the term ‘due process,’ which is a phrase we find in the Constitution.”

“Can you name another constitutional right that is chilled until you find out it is chilled, and then you have to petition the government to get it back?” he continued.

“Sir, there are strict criteria before anybody…“ Burriesci began.

“That is not my question,” Gowdy interjected. “My question is what process is afforded a United States citizen before that person’s constitutional right is infringed?”…

Illegal Immigrant Charged With Murder In California Fire Had Prior Arrests, Was Never Deported – Fox News

The suspect charged with murder in connection with a vacant building fire in Los Angeles was in the United States illegally and had a string of arrests to his name – but the feds never deported him, officials said Friday.

Johnny Sanchez, a 21-year-old citizen of Honduras, was initially arrested in 2012 for crossing the southeastern California border illegally, the Los Angeles Times reported. Authorities said they released him because he had no criminal history or previous immigration violations at the time.

He was arrested again in January on suspicion of domestic violence and twice in the ensuing months on suspicion of drug possession, officials said.

After he crossed the border, authorities reportedly placed him under supervision and ordered Sanchez to report to them regularly – but he stopped doing so in 2014, the Times adds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement never started the process of deporting him, spokeswoman Virginia Kice said, adding that the reason why was unclear. She told the newspaper it’s ICE policy “to focus on individuals who pose a public safety threat.”

The fire on Monday killed five homeless people. Four of the badly burned bodies weren’t found until Tuesday afternoon, when search dogs located them under a heap of debris on the second floor…

Egypt’s Ex-President Mursi Gets Life Sentence In Qatar Spy Case – NewsMax

Egypt’s former President Mohamed Mursi was jailed for life, while six people, including two Al-Jazeera staff members, had death sentences affirmed by a Cairo criminal court in a case linked to passing state secrets to Qatar.

The death sentences had been referred to the Grand Mufti, the government’s top religious official, for ratification. Mursi and two others who served in the government during his one-year presidency were given the standard life sentence. The verdicts can be appealed.

The judge, Mohamed Fahmy, said religious authorities who reviewed the case found that what the defendants had “surpassed espionage,” because what they accomplished no spy could have done.

The two Jazeera journalists were identified as Alaa Omar Mohamed and Ibrahim Mohamed Helal. They were tried in absentia.

Egyptian officials have claimed the Qatar-based satellite channel is sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement that fielded Mursi for office and was branded a terrorist organization after his July 2013 ouster.

Mursi, who was pushed from power in a military-backed popular uprising, has already been sentenced to death in connection with a prison breakout at the time of the 2011 uprising against his predecessor, Hosni Mubarak. He has also been sentenced to life in prison in connection with another espionage case tied to the Palestinian Hamas movement…

Violent Gitmo Prisoner Obama Released Is Missing; Search Begins – Right Wing News

As his last few years in office begin winding down, President Obama has been speeding to release as many dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay detention facility as he can before he has to exit the White House. Now we’ve discovered that one of those terrorists is missing.

Conservatives have been warning of Obama’s efforts to return terrorists to the battlefields of the Middle East since day one, but neither the left nor the media have paid any attention.

Now the Washington Post is reporting that one of Obama’s terror pals has disappeared after being released.

A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner transferred to Uruguay in 2014 has vanished and is believed to have left the country under uncertain circumstances, U.S. officials said.

Law enforcement is now searching for the former detainee, Syrian national Jihad Ahmed Mustafa Dhiab, in Brazil, a U.S. official said.

“We are coordinating with officials in Brazil and Uruguay to determine his whereabouts,” the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive incident.

While the Obama administration declined to comment publicly about the case, officials believe that Dhiab may have crossed into Brazil without documents that would allow him to enter that country legally…

The EU Wants To Impose A Tax For Sharing Links On The Internet – Zero Hedge

No wonder the people of Great Britain are itching to rid themselves of this miserable, idiotic union.

TechDirt reports:

We’ve written plenty of times about ridiculous European plans to create a so-called “snippet tax” which is more officially referred to as “ancillary rights” (and is really just about creating a tax on Google).

The basic concept is that some old school newspapers are so lazy and have so failed to adapt to the internet – and so want to blame Google for their own failures – that they want to tax any aggregator (e.g., Google) that links to their works with a snippet, that doesn’t pay for the privilege of sending those publishers traffic.

As you may remember, Germany has been pushing for such a thing for many, many years, and Austria has been exploring it as well. But perhaps the most attention grabbing move was the one in Spain, which not only included a snippet tax, but made it mandatory. That is, even if you wanted Google News to link to you for free, you couldn’t get that. In response, Google took the nuclear option and shut down Google News in Spain. A study showed that this law has actually done much to harm Spanish publishers, but the EU pushes on, ridiculously.

As discussed a year ago, some in the EU Commission are all for creating an EU-wide snippet tax, and as ridiculous and counterproductive as that is, the Commission is about to make a decision on it, and the public consultation on the issue is about to close (it ends tomorrow)…

“Was he motivated by the ideology of some fanatic Islamic organization which believes it is somehow heroic to mow down innocent and defenseless men and women?” Sanders asked.

“Was he motivated by homophobia and hatred of the gay community? Was he motivated by some kind of hatred of Latinos? Was he suicidal and wanted to end his life by taking others with him? We may never know the answer to those questions.”

Sanders noted that the attacker was one person, not an entire people or a religion.

Expressing concerns in an ITV interview about the Democratic presidential candidate, who he claims is monitoring him, Assange described Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump as an “unpredictable phenomenon”, but predictably, given their divergent political views, didn’t say if he preferred the billionaire to be president.

He was not asked if he supported Green Party candidate Jill Stein, even though she said she would immediately pardon Wikileaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning if elected.

Another Planned Attack? Suspect With Explosives, Camo Outfit, Assault Weapons Arrested In West Hollywood – Zero Hedge

While initial reports are scarce and there is no confirmation yet, moments ago a ProPublica reporter wrote that according to LA law enforcement, a suspect dressed in a camouflage outfit and wearing a security badge, transporting explosives and assault weapons, was arrested in West Hollywood, a popular neighborhood among the Los Angeles gay community, just as the local gay pride Parade was set to begin.

As a reminder, tens of thousands of people were expected to flood West Hollywood on Sunday for the annual L.A. Pride Parade. The festival celebrating the region’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community kicked off Friday with a musical lineup that features more than 40 artists, headlined by pop stars Charli XCX and Carly Rae Jepsen. Held in West Hollywood Park, festival hours are 2 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. on Sunday.

Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.

Early Sunday, there was a call to Santa Monica police of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street.

Muslim Mass Murderer Omar Mateen Had Been Investigated By FBI, Tied To Islamic Terror Groups – Pamela Gellar

The jihadi who slaughtered at least 50 at a gay nightclub in Florida last night was known to law enforcement. More of their “Muslim outreach,” I’m sure.

“Omar Mateen, Terrorist Who Attacked Orlando Gay Club, Had Been Investigated by FBI,” Daily Beast:

Mateen was a ‘known quantity’ to federal law enforcement before he killed 53 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.

Mateen came to the attention of federal authorities twice prior to being identified as the gunman in the Orlando nightclub mass shooting, a senior law enforcement source told The Daily Beast.

If this was a terror attack, you knew, we all did, that it would happen here, again CBS News Live

CNN has coverage here, 20 feared dead, dozens more wounded

Approximately 20 people are dead inside Pulse, a gay nightclub, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said Sunday morning, just hours after a shooter opened fire in the club. At least 42 people have been transported for medical treatment, he said.

Police have shot and killed the gunman, Mina told reporters.
“It’s appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.” Law enforcement sources told CNN that the device, which was strapped to the suspect, was possibly explosive, but authorities don’t know if it was real or not.
A canine unit indicated there were explosives inside the suspect’s car as well, the sources said.
Too early to say, but via CNN
While investigators are exploring all angles, they “have suggestions the individual has leanings towards (Islamic terrorism), but right now we can’t say definitely,” said Ron Hopper, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Orlando bureau.

Update: Our colleagues at Twitchy are on the story as well.

Update: The terrorist has been identified as a 30-year-old American male citizen from Port St. Lucie, Florida. In keeping with our policy of refusing to name mass or spree killers, we will not name him. We will note that authorities think that the shooters has radical Islamist ties.

ABC News just Tweeted this

The FBI is saying he might have made threats in the past that he had ties to terror groups

Oh dear God, reports are that 50 are dead

 

The Washington Post has this

A gunman opened fire inside a crowded gay nightclub in Orlando, killing 50 people and injuring dozens more in a rampage that turned into a deadly hostage situation.

Authorities in Orlando said that 50 people were killed in what authorities are calling an act of domestic terrorism, and many others were injured in the violence at Pulse, a popular gay bar and dance club. Police had initially thought about 20 people were killed in the attack.

The Romanian hacker who claimed he easily breached Hillary Clinton’s email server pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to two counts of computer hacking charges, as part of a deal with the Justice Department.

Fish-Keeping Father-Of-One Is Told To Demolish His Garden Pond Because Burglars Could Fall In It And Drown – Daily Mail

A fish fanatic has been told to get rid of the pond in his back garden because it could potentially be a hazard for burglars.

Sovereign Housing have told Kevin Sheehan to demolish the water features at his home in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

When he asked why, the 62-year-old claims they told him the measure had to be adopted because ‘if someone breaks in they could fall in’.

Mr Sheehan, who lives with his partner and their one-year-old daughter Olivia, has slammed the ruling as ‘ridiculous’.

He told the Oxford Mail: ‘It’s my home, I am going to fight it as much as I can – there is no rule in the tenancy about fish ponds.

‘The reason they gave was if someone breaks into the back garden they can fall in the pond because there’s a six-foot fence all round and they can’t see it.

‘I said: “Well they shouldn’t be breaking in.”‘

‘I’ve got about 80 fish in the pond, where can I put these fish if I’ve not got a pond? I can’t put them in the river, I’d get into trouble. They can’t die because of this.’…

VA Admits To Wrongly Declaring Over 4,000 Veterans Dead – Washington Free Beacon

The Department of Veterans Affairs admitted it wrongly declared more than 4,000 veterans dead over the past five years, cutting off benefits for them and their dependents.

The agency disclosed that it wrongly terminated benefits for 4,201 veterans between 2011 and 2015 in a letter to Rep. David Jolly (R., Fla.) this month. The admission came more than six months after Jolly initially requested information on veterans whose VA benefits had been erroneously cut off following a series of mistaken death cases by the VA in the Tampa Bay area.

State Department Sets New Single-Day Record For Syrian Refugee Approvals – Washington Times

The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a single-day record, as President Obama tries to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year – renewing fears among security analysts who say the administration is cutting corners to meet a political goal.

Officials insist they are moving faster because of improvements in screening and say they are still running all the traps on applicants.

But the spike is stunning, with more people accepted Monday alone than in the entire months of January or February.

“The Obama administration is on full throttle to admit as many people as possible before the time clock runs out on them,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “This is the classic scenario when political expediency trumps prudence, and someone slips through who shouldn’t have, and tragedy ensues.”

Powerless to stop the civil war in Syria, Mr. Obama has instead offered the U.S. as a haven for some of those fleeing the conflict.

He promised to accept 10,000 refugees from Oct. 1 through Sept. 30. As of Tuesday evening, the administration had approved 2,540 – an average of about 10 applications a day…

DNC Chair’s PAC Has Paid More In Salaries Than It Has Given To Democrats – Washington Free Beacon

The leadership PAC of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) has paid out nearly $100,000 more in salaries than it has given to Democratic candidates during the 2016 election cycle, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows.

The Democrats Win Seats PAC, or DWS PAC, has a stated mission of directing “resources to help elect Democrats around the country.” However, records show the PAC has spent more on staff than helping campaigns.

Between Jan. 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016, the PAC paid $153,453 to Lindsey Schulte, the committee’s highest-paid employee, according to a review of the DWS PAC’s finances.

Jason O’Malley, the second highest-paid employee at the PAC, collected $69,112 in salary and an additional $20,000 for “fundraising consulting fees.”

Meredith Swan made $37,463 and Anna Stolitzka made $3,164 since January 2015, bringing the PAC’s payroll to $283,282.

The DWS PAC contributed just $186,000 to the committees of Democratic politicians, with the largest donation of $15,000 going to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The PAC disbursed $97,282 less to candidates than it paid to the people running the committee.

Oberlin Progressives Want Low Grades Thrown Out, Conversations Instead Of Written Exams – Truth Revolt

The list of demands from social justice college students around the country is growing daily. Most of them demand bully-proof safe spaces just to escape from any and all perceived oppression. Now, some at Oberlin College are asking for a bit more from administration: throw out all grades below ‘C’ and convert written exams to conversations.

With having to juggle protests, general activism, and avoiding contrary ideas written in chalk, these students are finding little time left to study and need someone to throw them a lifeline, and fast. What’s worse, as Reason points out, the stress, mental anguish, and living in a “toxic” atmosphere, is leading many students to drop out altogether.

The latest in desperate pleas on campus were discovered in a piece for The New Yorker that introduced several student activists at Oberlin who are asking the impossible.

One of them is Megan Bautista, a self-described “Afro-Latinx.” She expressed frustration at having to drive back and forth to attend the protests for cop shooting victim Tamir Rice forty minutes away and keep up school work back in 2014.

“A lot of us started suffering academically,” Bautista noted.

She had hoped that Oberline would see the needs of the Black Lives Matter movement and once again follow its previous grade modifications offered during the Vietnam War protests and the Kent State shooting in 1970. She signed her name along with over 1,300 other students to a petition asking for the elimination of average grades and below. However, the administration didn’t oblige…

‘An Abuse Of Power:’ IRS To Face Lawmakers After Thousands Seized From Small Business Owners – Daily Signal

For more than four years, Maryland dairy farmer Randy Sowers has been fighting the federal government, asking it to right what many say was a wrong.

In Feb. 2012, two federal agents told Sowers, who owns South Mountain Creamery in Frederick, Md. that the Internal Revenue Service was seizing more than $60,000 from his farm’s bank account under a subset of civil forfeiture laws governing cash transactions.

According to the IRS, Sowers had committed structuring violations. Structuring is the act of making consistent cash deposits or withdrawals of under $10,000 to avoid government reporting requirements.

But the dairy farmer didn’t know he was doing anything wrong, and because Sowers and his wife sold milk at local farmer’s markets – where customers paid primarily in cash – they frequently made cash deposits into the business’s bank account.

Sowers and his wife tried to fight to the government to get their money back, but ultimately decided to settle.

The IRS returned $33,436 to the Sowers and kept $29,500…

Kasich Joins Cruz, Rubio In Keeping Delegates As Campaign Leverage – Fox News

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has become the latest Donald Trump rival to take a clenched-fist approach to the delegates he won during the primary season, moving this week to keep those delegates as bargaining chips going into the party’s July nominating convention.

A former top aide to the Kasich presidential campaign confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that he is instructing his delegates to stay bound to him through the convention.

Kasich joins Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in keeping delegates on lockdown despite suspending his presidential primary campaign weeks ago. Though Trump is expected to formally clinch the nomination during the final June 7 primaries, his ex-rivals are thought to be holding onto delegates as a means of leverage.

Kasich thinks that holding onto them will force or at least persuade Trump to run a more positive general election campaign and try harder to unify the party, a Kasich aide told The Washington Post, which first reported the story.

According to The Washington Post, Kasich on Monday told party officials that the 161 delegates he won in state primaries and caucuses should keep their allegiance to him through the Cleveland convention…

Chicago Students Now Required To Adopt Transgender Newspeak – Daily Caller

Under a new set of guidelines rolled out last week by Chicago public schools, children will now be required to address transgender students and employees by their preferred name and pronouns – or face the consequences.

Transgender students and employees can choose their preferred bathroom, locker room, name and pronouns, and everyone else is required to affirm the individual’s new identity, according to the guidelines.

Trangender students and adults in the CPS system can require their peers to adopt gender neutral terminology, such as using the pronoun “ze” instead of the usual “he” or “she.”

“Preferred Gender Pronoun (PGP) is the pronoun or set of pronouns that an individual would like others to use when talking to or referring to that individual,” the guidelines state.

Chelsea’s Husband’s Hedge Fund A Total Disaster, Closes After Losing 90% Of Its Value – TruthFeed

Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky is finally shutting down the Greece-focused fund, after losing nearly 90% of its value. Investors were told last month that Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity would finally be put out of its misery and would shutter.

The closure comes as the worst possible time: we are confident that Donald Trump will be quick to work it into his political attack routine.

Mr. Chelsea Clinton and his partners began raising money in 2011 from investors for the firm’s flagship fund. Since then, that portfolio has posted uneven performance. A Stanford University graduate, Mr. Mezvinsky worked at Goldman for eight years before leaving to join a private equity firm. He left that job to form Eaglevale with two longtime Goldman partners, Bennett Grau and Mark Mallon. The hedge fund firm is named after a bridge in Central Park.

As noted above, some of the firm’s earliest investors were Goldman partners, including Lloyd C. Blankfein, Goldman’s chief executive officer, who let Eaglevale use his name in marketing the flagship fund. Ironically this is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of dollars that Goldman paid to Marc’s mother-in-law…

An Out-Of-Control EPA Loses Yet Another Court Case – Investor’s Business Daily

When Wyoming rancher Andy Johnson decided to create a stock pond for horses and cattle on his 8-acre property, he did what any conscientious landowner would do. He got permits from both the state and local government before moving any dirt.

What he didn’t count on was a power-mad Environmental Protection Agency, which in January 2014 said Johnson’s pond violated the Clean Water Act – even though the CWA exempts stock ponds – told him to get rid of it, and threatened him with a $37,500 fine for every day he delayed.

Rather than cave to federal thuggery, Johnson refused the order, and then sued the EPA with the help of the invaluable Pacific Legal Foundation. Environmental experts he commissioned said the pond was exempt, and served as a habitat for migratory birds, fish and wildlife.

More than two years later, Johnson won. In a settlement reached with the EPA, he gets to keep his pond, he won’t need to get a federal permit, the EPA fines have been removed, and all Johnson agreed to do was plant some willow trees and limit access to a portion of his pond for a while…

Dry Rot In Academia – Thomas Sowell

Jason Riley has now joined the long and distinguished list of people invited – and then disinvited – to give a talk on a college campus, in this case Virginia Tech.

Mr. Riley is a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal and, perhaps most relevantly, author of a very insightful book titled Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed.

In short, Jason Riley’s views on race are different from the views that prevail on most college campuses. At one time, 50 years ago or earlier, exposing students to a different viewpoint was considered to be a valuable part of their education. But that was before academia – and the education system in general – became virtually a monopoly of the political left.

Today one can literally go from kindergarten to becoming a graduate student seeking a Ph.D., without ever hearing a vision of the world that conflicts with the vision of the left.

State Department “Unable To Find” Hillary Emails To IT Aide, Apologizes For Incompetence – Zero Hedge

To say the least, it’s going to be an interesting couple of months for Hillary Clinton. As the FBI probe into Clinton’s handling of classified information makes its way to Clinton herself, the Clinton camp will also need be focused on trying to stave off attacks by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

More on the FBI probe in a moment, but first, one of the key areas that Trump will inevitably be focused on is trying to frame Hillary Clinton as just another typical insider who despite the rhetoric, is as cozy with Wall Street as any other bought and paid for politician. To that end, the Republicans are not letting go of the fact that Hillary has yet to release any transcripts of her speeches given to Wall Street.

As The Hill reports, Republican operatives are scouring the country for transcripts, notes, or secret recordings of those Wall Street speeches that the Clinton camp refuses to discuss in any great detail – probably because Goldman Sachs alone paid Clinton $675,000 to speak. We’re going to go out on a limb here, but Clinton probably was not brought in to speak multiple times by Wall Street firms just so they could hear how bad they were, which is precisely why the GOP wants to get its hands on anything they can related to those speeches (recall: The Real Reason Hillary Clinton Refuses To Release Her Wall Street Transcripts)…
