Texas New Black Panther Party Leader: Blacks ‘Are Being Pimped Like Prostitutes’ By Democrats – Breitbart
.

.
The leader of Houston’s New Black Panther Party said blacks “are being pimped like prostitutes” by Democrats and should listen to the message from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump reached out to members of the black community last week during a speech following riots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Houston’s New Black Panther Party leader Quanell X addressed Trumps Milwaukee speech on a Fox 26 Faceoff with conservative radio talk show host Matt Patrick. “Let me say this to the brothers and sisters who listened and watched that speech,” he said. “We may not like the vessel that said what he said, but I ask us to truly examine what he said.”

“It is a fact, that for 54 years we have been voting for the Democratic Party like no other race in America,” Quannel continued. “They have not given us the same loyalty and love that we have given them. We, as black people, have to re-examine the relationship where we are being pimped like prostitutes and they’re the big pimps – pimping us politically, promising us everything, and we get nothing in return.”…

DC Minimum Wage Hike Linked To Largest Loss Of Restaurant Jobs In 15 Years – Daily Caller

The minimum wage hike in Washington, D.C, is already devastating employment in the region and is linked to the largest loss of restaurant jobs in the last 15 years.

Officials raised the minimum wage in July of 2015 to $10.50 per hour, up from $8.25 since 2014. The Employment Policies Institute revealed in a May report that 48 percent of District businesses had already reduced staff or cut hours to deal with the increases since 2014. In the first six months of 2016, the restaurant industry in D.C. lost roughly 1,400 jobs, a historic drop for a six-month period, according to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).

The restaurant industry in the suburbs outside D.C. grew by 2,900 jobs over the same period. The minimum wage rose again in the District July 1 to $11.50 per hour, and will continue to rise over the next four years to $15 per hour by 2020.

“This new report should serve as a warning to cities and states considering major minimum wage hikes like D.C.’s,” Jeremy Adler, AEI communications director, said in a statement. “The statistics don’t lie – they show a clear correlation between big minimum wage increases and jobs losses. It’s a reminder that there are serious consequences to these misguided labor policies, and that following D.C.’s example puts workers’ economic future at risk.”

Despite District officials flooring the gas on minimum wage increases, local business owners are very wary of the possible effects. Many are anticipating the law will result in higher consumer prices and less hours for employees. They also say employees will be laid off to factor in the higher costs to businesses…

Axe-Wielding ISIS Jihadi Attacks Priest In Indonesia After Trying To Blow Up Hundreds Of Worshippers – Daily Mail
.

.
An ISIS suicide bomber today attacked a Catholic priest with an axe as he tried to blow up hundreds of worshippers at a church during Sunday Mass.

Priest Albert Pandiangan, 60, was holding the holy ceremony at the altar when the 18-year-old fanatic rushed towards him with a backpack bomb and tried to blow himself up.

But the bomb burned without setting off the explosives, so the jihadi pulled an axe from his bag and slashed the priest’s arm at St Yoseph Church in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra in Indonesia.

The congregation then stepped in and managed to wrestle the axe from his grasp, detaining him until the police arrived…

How Obamacare Destroyed The Middle Class In One Chart – Zero Hedge

Ever wonder how politicians and bureaucrats can go out and deliver the same misleading propaganda to various media outlets each day and keep a straight face while doing it? Are these folks so detached from the real world that they go back to the “safe space” of their offices in Washington D.C. and pat themselves on the back thinking they’ve actually duped the American people into believing some alternate set of facts that have no basis in reality? Or, are they so immersed in the false narratives day in and day out that they actually start to believe their own rhetoric?

No matter the reason, one narrative we’ve found particularly misleading this week comes to us courtesy of Marjorie Connolly, of the Department of Health and Human Services, who has the brutally difficult job of defending the “success” of Obamacare as it literally on the verge of collapse from soaring premiums and declining insurer participation. While we certainly don’t envy the position of Connolly, we do find some of her comments to the press “slightly” misinformed.

Just to provide an illustrative sample:

Reuters (8/2/16) – “Consumers coming back to shop for 2017 will continue to have a robust set of choices.”

New York Times (8/19/16) – “A number of steps remain before the full picture of marketplace competition and prices are known. Regardless, we remain confident that the majority of marketplace consumers will have multiple choices and will be able to select a plan for less than $75 per month when Open Enrollment begins Nov. 1.”

The Tennessean (8/25/16) – “Consumers in Tennessee will continue to have affordable coverage options in 2017. Last year, the average monthly premium for people with Marketplace coverage getting tax credits increased just $2, from $102 to $104 per month, despite headlines suggesting double digit increases.”…

1,500 Mostly-Drunk Americans Accidentally Invade Canada – Buzzfeed

About 1,500 Americans accidentally invaded Canada this weekend when strong winds pushed them off course during an annual float down the St. Clair River separating Michigan from Ontario.

Each year during the Port Huron Float Down, people climb aboard inflatable rafts, inner tubes, and other vessels and float down the river for a day – aided by plenty of alcohol.

But this year, the weather intervened and many of them ended up on the wrong side of the international border in Sarnia, Ontario.

The whole thing was a huge headache for Canadian authorities, who suddenly had a bunch of dubiously sober Americans and their watercraft to deal with…

Private Helicopter Pilot Performs Heroic Mountain Rescue After Emergency Service Fails – Daily Mail

This is the incredible moment a private helicopter pilot performs a jaw-dropping rescue of a stranded tourist – after the professional team could not complete the mission.

In an ‘extreme and intense’ manoeuvre heroic pilot Constantin Apăvăloaei saves a severely injured 44-year-old woman stuck 2000 metres up on the Carpathian Mountains.

Another walker on the Piatra Craiului range was able to capture the impressive sight on camera.

It shows Mr Apăvăloaei, from the private company Corbex Helicopters in Brasov, expertly steering the aircraft into position.

With astonishing skill he reverses the helicopter backwards towards the hiker, from Bucharest, with its tail facing the mountainside.

Staying completely stable despite the strong updraft he slowly moves into position, allowing rescuers to drop down to the stranded tourist, who had fallen 30m down a crevasse.

Smoothly they pick her up in under a minute, before the pilot flies her off to safety.

The viral video, which has hundreds of thousands of views, was posted on the National Dispatch Rescue Facebook page.

It transpires, according to Romanian news site Digi 24, that a SMURD rescue team had arrived much earlier but could not finish the mission.

An investigation has now been launched by the Department for Emergency Situations, after Mr Apăvăloaei was at first denied from carrying out the rescue himself…

ACLU Loses Court Ruling In Fight Against Wisconsin’s Voter ID Law – Western Journalism

A federal appeals court on Friday declined to soften Wisconsin’s strict voter ID law, ending several weeks of legal jousting over the measure first approved by lawmakers in 2011.

The ruling is “a significant victory for the people of Wisconsin and ensures that Voter ID will be in place for the upcoming election in November,” said Rebecca Ballweg of the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

In July, a federal district court had ruled against the law, saying that voters who did not have the required ID could sign an affidavit attesting to their identity.

Wisconsin appealed that ruling. Initially, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit overturned the lower court…

Entire Facebook Trending News Team Fired Following Breitbart Coverage – Breitbart

Facebook has fired its Trending News team, responsible for curating the social media network’s “Trending News” list, after Breitbart Tech began to reveal their progressive biases last month. The team is set to be replaced by a team of engineers managing an algorithm.

Facebook’s Trending News feature is supposed to present users with the most popular news topics being discussed across the platform. But a Gizmodo exposé in May revealed that Trending News operated much like a traditional newsroom, with a team of “curators” selecting stories they considered newsworthy.

It was later revealed that the team artificially injected stories that were not trending into the Trending News feed, and routinely suppressed topics that were of interest to conservatives. In response, Republican Senator John Thune, Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, sent a letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg demanding answers.

Eager to avoid further congressional action, Facebook launched an internal investigation, which found themselves not guilty. However, in their report they did acknowledge that the “unintentional biases” of its overwhelmingly progressive workforce might have led to bias in its Trending News curation.

Last month, Breitbart Tech decided to show the world just how biased Facebook’s Trending News team were, with a series of articles documenting the wacky progressive views of some of its leading team members.

Now, according to Quartz, Facebook has laid off its entire Trending News staff as they move towards a more algorithm-focused process. Descriptions for trending news topics, which Facebook says was the primary reason for employing news curators, will be removed…

Turns Out Colin Kaepernick Is A Douchebag – NFL Network

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has willingly immersed himself into controversy by refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.

His latest refusal to stand for the anthem – he has done this in at least one other preseason game – came before the 49ers’ preseason loss to Green Bay at Levi’s Stadium on Friday night.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”…

State Department Dragging Its Feet, Says Clinton Calendars Won’t Be Released Until After Election – Associated Press

Seven months after a federal judge ordered the State Department to begin releasing monthly batches of the detailed daily schedules showing meetings by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, the government told The Associated Press it won’t finish the job before Election Day.

The department has so far released about half of the schedules. Its lawyers said in a phone conference with the AP’s lawyers that the department now expects to release the last of the detailed schedules around Dec. 30, weeks before the next president is inaugurated.

The AP’s lawyers late Friday formally asked the State Department to hasten that effort so that the department could provide all Clinton’s minute-by-minute schedules by Oct. 15. The agency did not immediately respond.

The schedules drew new attention this week after the AP analyzed the ones released so far. The news agency found that more than half the people outside the government who met or spoke by telephone with Clinton while she was secretary of state had given money – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation. The AP’s analysis focused on people with private interests and excluded her meetings or calls with U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives.

The AP’s reporting was based on official calendars covering Clinton’s entire term plus the more-detailed daily schedules covering roughly half her time as secretary of state…

‘Black Men For Bernie’ Founder To End Dem ‘Political Slavery’ Of Minority Voters By Campaigning For Trump – Breitbart

Black Men for Bernie founder Bruce Carter’s mission to restore black communities didn’t end when Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary. He opposed Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment then because he knew that they didn’t represent the minority communities he engaged in politics to fight for.

After the leak of internal DNC emails, Carter is convinced that the Democratic Party “rigged” the primary against his candidate and that Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Party has no intention of changing the policies that led to the destruction of the communities he’s working to improve.

Bruce Carter still believes that Hillary Clinton is the poster child for the kind of cronyism, corruption, and evil that the Bernie revolution was built to overthrow. He doesn’t believe Hillary Clinton when she labels Donald Trump and his supporters as racists because he knows she falsely labeled her opponents in the primary as sexist “Bernie Bros.” Carter’s preparing to take the experience, knowledge, and contacts his group built during the primary to campaign against Hillary Clinton and for Donald Trump and other Republicans in battleground states across the country.

Bruce Carter and Black Men for Bernie are at war with the Democratic establishment, whom he says pander for votes but haven’t delivered meaningful results to minority communities for decades. Carter became politically active to support Bernie Sanders, who taught him how the establishment’s only real constituency was the donor class. When he paired that knowledge with what he knew about the decline in the black and minority neighborhoods he loves, he realized Democratic politicians and the media had been lying…

Update: Police Stood Back As Trump Supporters Were Assaulted, Robbed And Spit On By Pro-Hillary Mob – Gateway Pundit

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was in Minneapolis Friday night for a fundraiser held at the city’s convention city that was besieged outside by violent liberal protesters.

Trump supporters attending the rally were punched, spit on and robbed while Trump’s Secret Service motorcade was blocked by protesters who jumped on one of the vehicles.

PJ Media reported:

A week ago in Minneapolis, Republican donors attending a Trump fundraiser were assaulted, robbed and spat upon by a violent leftist mob as they were leaving the event. Attendees say that even though there was a strong law enforcement presence at the convention center downtown where the fundraiser was held, they were not afforded any police protection when coming to and leaving the event – and even more incredibly, there were no arrests.

Many people who attended the event told Fox 9 that police seemed to back down from intervening, but the Minneapolis Police Department insists there was no stand-down order…

Fact-Check: Top 20 Lies In Hillary’s ‘Alt-Right’ Speech – Breitbart

Andrew Breitbart would have been proud: on Thursday, his website became Hillary Clinton’s number one target.

In his book, Righteous Indignation: Excuse Me While I Save the World!, Andrew recalled how he warned the Tea Party what lay ahead for them: “I said that they’d be labeled racists and hate mongers and violent criminals, that they’d be depicted as the dregs of society, people to be excluded from dinner parties because of their made-up closet KKK status. They were about to be targeted.”

Andrew added: “They need to marginalize and demonize those that would stand up to their hardball, toxic, and antidemocratic tactics… But it won’t work. Given a fair hearing, given just the slightest exposure – and the American people will rise to the occasion. They see these tactics for what they are.”

Conservatives will never be “given” a fair hearing. But I made sure I was personally on hand in Reno to hear Hillary Clinton’s lies, wearing my Breitbart shirt.

Here are the 20 worst lies in her speech, in chronological order.

1. [Trump’s rhetoric] is like nothing we’ve heard before from a nominee for President of the United States. On the contrary, Barack Obama has specialized in divisive rhetoric, both as a candidate (“bitter clingers,” “typical white person“) and as president. And, of course, Hillary Clinton often uses racist language. In 2008, she pandered to “hard-working… white Americans”; in 2016, she borrows from Black Lives Matter, talking about “white privilege” and “systemic racism.”…

Hillary’s Own Hometown Newspaper Goes For Her Jugular – Red State Watcher

In a new move, Hillary Clinton’s hometown newspaper “The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette” has called out crooked Hillary and her “Corrup” Family Foundation.

ArkansasOnline.com reported: “Those of us who watched her rise here in Arkansas will know she’s been getting away with ethical shortcuts for a long, long time…” – Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Editorial Board.

Then there’s something called the Clinton Foundation, without the “Family” part in the title. And the Washington Post reported last week that more than half of the big donors to that outfit – those who have given a million dollars or more – are corporations or foreign groups or governments. The Post tallied them up in a feat of investigative journalism the other day. Among the big givers were the governments of Saudi Arabia, Barclay’s Bank in Britain, and American companies like Coca-Cola and ExxonMobil. Not to mention the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Brunei and Algeria.

But why wait till now to announce these supposed reforms? Weren’t they just as much an ongoing conflict of interest when Hillary Rodham Clinton was “only” secretary of state? And why wait to announce that they won’t go into effect until just after election day? Which means donors could rush to give the Foundation big money just before November’s election, when it would matter most.

(…) Those of us who watched her rise here in Arkansas will know she’s been getting away with ethical shortcuts for a long, long time and the lower she sinks, the higher she rises in the esteem of her fans – or just of those who have benefited from her largesse…

CNN Cancels Dr. Drew’s Show One Week After He Voiced “Grave Concern” For Hillary’s Health – Zero Hedge

One week ago, board-certified medicine specialist, TV personality and CNN employee Dr. Drew Pinsky broke the mold of conformity, when he said that he is “gravely concerned” about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s health, pointing out that treatment she is receiving could be the result of her bizarre behaviors.

Appearing on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning, Pinsky said he and his colleague Dr. Robert Huizenga became “gravely concerned… not just about her health but her health care,” after analyzing what medical records on Hillary had been released. Pinsky pointed out that after Clinton fainted and fell in late 2012, she suffered from a “transverse sinus thrombosis,” an “exceedingly rare clot” that “virtually guarantees somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system.” “What’s wrong with her coagulation system, has that been evaluated?” asked Dr. Drew.

Pinsky described the situation as “bizarre,” and said that Hillary’s medical condition was “dangerous” and “concerning”…

German Fisherman ‘Catches’ Nude Swimmer’s Penis – The Independent

Swimming is a dangerous affair: especially when you’re doing it in your birthday suit.

Herbert Fendt (who changed his name to avoid public embarrassment) was skinny dipping in a lake in Kaisersee in Southern Germany last week.

According to local media reports, Fendt, who is rather fond of skinny dipping, had been swimming when he felt a tug in his genital area.

It wasn’t a leaf from the surrounding trees. It wasn’t a fish.

Apparently, a nearby fisherman got a little too enthusiastic with his line, and ended up accidentally hooking onto the poor man’s penis.

Talking to Augsburger-Allgemeine, a German regional newspaper, he said:

“I cried out to the fisherman ashore shouting ‘do not pull, do not pull…’ I was terrified he was going to try to reel me in.”

Needless to say, some have questioned the validity of the story.

After all, Fendt was swimming in a lake many nudists frequent, located near Dickelsmoor.

The President of the local fishing association, Sylvia Fischer said:

“We fishermen can perfectly understand the situation… We have all had at times a fishing hook pierced through one of our fingers, so we can imagine the incident was quite painful.”

Fischer. Dickelsmoor.

If true, this may just be the most ironic story of the year…

EPA Withheld Key Info On Post-Spill Funding To Gold King Mine Culprit – Daily Caller

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials improperly withheld information from The Daily Caller News Foundation confirming its reporting that the contractor responsible for the August 2015 Gold King Mine spill was awarded nearly $2.7 million not long after the disaster.

The EPA internally acknowledged the award and crafted a response to TheDCNF’s finding, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, but the response was never sent to the news organization.

“It just slipped through the cracks,” EPA spokeswoman Melissa Harrison told TheDCNF 32 minutes after deadline. “It was a mistake on our behalf.”

The EPA response uncovered by TheDCNF defended the funding by claiming that the contractor was used for disaster assessments, rather than cleanup.

“EPA’s decision to reward the firm involved in the Gold King Mine disaster shows they’re more concerned about protecting themselves and their friends than the environment,” Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of transparency group Open The Books, told TheDCNF Thursday.

The contractor – Environmental Restoration LLC – excavated Gold King Mine at the direction of EPA officials, which caused a three-million-gallon flood of toxic waste to poison drinking water for three states and the Navajo Nation.

TheDCNF asked the EPA to explain the awards and gave the agency the opportunity to defend the funding. Agency officials responded internally almost immediately, but never provided comment for TheDCNF’s story, which was published nearly 39 hours later…

Clintons Already Planning Next Stage Of Corruption – Steven Hayward

Geez – Hillary Clinton hasn’t even won the election yet, and the Clintons are already planning to cheat on their promise to “scale back” the Clinton Foundation. From the Wall Street Journal this morning:

The Clinton Foundation is considering exceptions to its plan to stop accepting corporate and foreign donations and reduce family involvement as a way to insulate Hillary Clinton from potential conflicts of interest if elected president…

While the parent Clinton Foundation will stop accepting money from foreign governments and corporations, the foundation’s largest project, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, might continue to accept foreign government and corporate funding, Clinton health initiative officials said Wednesday.

And what’s one big thing Madam President Hillary will have to do if she wins? Clean up the mess that is Obamacare. And one way for health care companies to court favor with the House of Clinton will be to contribute to the “Clinton Health Access Initiative,” which is coincidentally the foundation’s largest program. “Access” indeed.

As Trump Gives $100,000 To Flood Victims, Hillary’s Caught In One Disgusting Display – Mad World News

Donald Trump did the presidential thing when he decided to visit Louisiana during the flood and donate $100,000 to help those suffering. At the same time, Hillary Clinton was missing from the campaign trail, but now we know what she was doing. As Trump was on the ground, helping Americans, Hillary was engaged in one disgusting display that will blow your mind.

Hillary couldn’t care less about real Americans who were hurting after devastating floods ravaged Louisiana. Instead, she couldn’t wait to be with the millionaires that she pandered to as those in Louisiana are struggling to put their lives back together.

Hillary was spotted in Martha’s vineyard eating what looks like a pork chop on a stick with her handler doctor, who is now in trying to blend in so he is not noticed. Yes, that black man is the same one who was outed as her handler, believe to be a medical doctor always at Hillary’s side. Hillary’s health problems are becoming undeniable, and it seems this doctor is always nearby just in case she has a seizure or some other episode.

Hillary was there for a fundraiser with Cher. She flew 20 miles in a jet, from the Vineyard to Nantucket, which should anger the nutty climate change activists on the liberal left.

However, there was something else that really got many Americans pissed off. She then followed that up with a ritzy fundraiser, raking in over $18 million with entertainer Justin Timberlake and his actress girlfriend Jessica Biel. She took ridiculous teenage selfies with Timberlake and Biel and made remarks mocking Trump, who had moved on to a rally in Texas.

Social Media users weren’t impressed with her rich friends. One tweet said, “Trump w/ Texans worried about tomorrow. Hillary w/ celebs worried about selfies.”…

How The U.S. Nurtures Jihadists On Its Own Soil FBI – Leo Hohmann

Maine Gov. Paul LePage is seeking sweeping changes in the way refugees are awarded welfare benefits after he blew the whistle on an “embarrassing” situation in his own state.

An Iranian refugee left Maine to fight for ISIS while he and his family received food stamps and other benefits for four years.

LePage is calling for an audit of all taxpayer-funded payouts to refugees in his state and nationwide, the Boston Herald reported in an article titled, “Welfare for ISIS: The outrageous case of Iranian refugee Adnan Fazeli.”

Fazeli, 38, came to Freeport, Maine, in 2009 and was killed last year on the battlefield in Lebanon after abandoning his wife and three kids to join the Caliphate’s army, according to federal court documents unsealed this week and disclosed by the Herald.

The family’s food stamps and welfare checks were cut off in 2013, Maine officials told the Herald, after Fazeli left the state for Turkey in his drive to become an ISIS fighter.

LePage said the outrageous revelation of an ISIS convert in his midst has left him “embarrassed” and outraged at President Obama’s “failed” vetting of immigrants, adding he’s fed up with states like his being left to deal with the refugee crisis.

“If people need to eat, I’ll feed them. But I want to keep Americans safe,” LePage told the Herald. “This is very embarrassing to the state of Maine, and I point the finger at the president and say, ‘How did this happen?’ If the federal government doesn’t do their job we don’t know what we’re getting.”

Fazeli reportedly became “self-radicalized” over the Internet while living in the U.S., according to an affidavit written by a state police detective on an FBI task force…

FBI Admits Hillary Used BleachBit Software Designed To Hide Traces Of Deleted Emails – Gateway Pundit
.

.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) told America’s Newsroom on Thursday that Hillary Clinton used BleachBit software to hide all traces of her deleted emails.

According BleachBit goes beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

Zero Hedge reported:

During his appearance on Fox, Gowdy clearly indicates that Clinton’s use of BleachBit undermines her claims that she only deleted innocuous “personal” emails from her private server…

Officials Stunned After What Obama’s Newly-Released Gitmo Prisoner Was Caught Doing – Fury News

The general definition of treason is betraying one’s country and helping your enemies during a time of war. While it might be politically incorrect to outright state that Barack Hussein Obama has committed treason against the United States of America, it’s pretty obvious what this man is up to by watching his ongoing antics over the past 8 years. Not only is this man the founder of ISIS as Donald Trump recently asserted, but his massive release of GITMO terrorists on almost a weekly basis speaks volumes of whose side this president is truly on.

While Obama continues to let his buddies out of Guantanamo Bay while trying to push the ridiculous rhetoric that these terrorists “rarely return to terrorism,” the stunning whereabouts of one prisoner was just revealed, which is nothing short of infuriating. FOX News reports that one of the prisoners released by Obama not only returned to terrorism, but was serving as a top commander and recruiter for ISIS. Abu Nassim, whose full name is Moez Ben Abdulgader Ben Ahmed Al Fezzani, was just arrested by officials after reportedly attempting to travel to Tunisia, along with 20 other ISIS supporters between the Libyan towns of Rigdaleen and Al-Jmail. Nassim was considered a top terror recruiter in Italy, and was also a most-wanted terrorist in the area.

While some excuse this president’s actions as pure negligence or out of his intent to keep his 2008 campaign promise to close down GITMO, both are weak excuses as it’s obvious there’s something more sinister at play here. According to the admission of his own administration, at least a dozen of released prisoners from GITMO have since launched massive attacks against the U.S. or our allied forces, and are responsible for killing at least a half-dozen Americans. Even in the face of this startling report from earlier this year, Obama continues to dump massive amounts of these violent high-ranking terrorists back onto the streets…

Elderly Veteran Kills Himself In Parking Lot Of V.A. Hospital After Being Denied Service – New York Times

A 76-year-old veteran committed suicide on Sunday in the parking lot of the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center on Long Island, where he had been a patient, according to the Suffolk County Police Department.

Peter A. Kaisen, of Islip, was pronounced dead after he shot himself outside Building 92, the nursing home at the medical center.

The hospital is part of the Veterans Affairs medical system, the nation’s largest integrated health care organization, which has been under scrutiny since 2014, when the department confirmed that numerous patients had died awaiting treatment at a V.A. hospital in Phoenix. Officials there had tried to cover up long waiting times for 1,700 veterans seeking medical care. A study released by the Government Accountability Office in April indicated that the system had yet to fix its scheduling problems.

Why Mr. Kaisen decided to end his life was not immediately known, but two people connected to the hospital who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss his death said that he had been frustrated that he was unable to see an emergency-room physician for reasons related to his mental health. “He went to the E.R. and was denied service,” one of the people, who currently works at the hospital, said. “And then he went to his car and shot himself.”

The worker questioned why Mr. Kaisen had not been referred to the hospital’s Building 64, its mental health center. The staff member said that while there was normally no psychologist at the ready in the E.R., one was always on call, and that the mental health building was open “24/7.”…

Brexit Britain Booming, So What Took Us So Long To Leave The EU? – Daily Express

The stock market is expected to soar. Retail sales are up, property and car sales remain strong and unemployment is falling. Where are all the naysayers with their doom-laden warnings about what would happen if we voted for Brexit now?

The fact remains that Britain has been held back for decades because of our membership of the EU. We have not been free to make the trade deals we would have wished for while whole swathes of industry were wrapped in red tape and bureaucracy.

A sense of freedom and potential has been bursting through in recent weeks and it is still only the early days. We have an even more brilliant future in store.

In the wake of the outcome of the referendum, there was a good deal of nonsense talked about older people voting to leave and thus putting the future of our younger generations at risk. What twaddle.

With youth unemployment reaching frightening heights across some parts of the EU, what would really have damaged the hopes and prospects of our young was to remain tied into a moribund institution in terminal decline.

As it is they, and the rest of us, have everything to play for. Whatever took us so long?

Just when you think that Islamic State cannot sink to any greater depths of depravity than they have already shown, along comes another incident so inhumane, so utterly barbaric that horror and revulsion are almost not enough…

Tennessee Official: Obamacare Insurance Market Near Collapse – Commercial Appeal

Tennessee’s insurance regulator approved hefty rate increases for the three carriers on the Obamacare exchange in an attempt to stabilize the already-limited number of insurers in the state.

The rate approvals, while a tough decision, were necessary to ensure that consumers around the state had options when open enrollment begins in November, said Julie Mix McPeak, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance. BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee is the only insurer to sell statewide and there was the possibility that Cigna and Humana would reduce their footprints or leave the market altogether.

Brexit Hero Nigel Farage To Appear With Donald Trump In Jackson, Mississippi – Breitbart

UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage addressed a 10,000+ strong crowd at the Coliseum in Jackson, Mississippi, telling them to “put on their walking boots” and urging them to form their own “People’s Army” to defeat the U.S. political establishment.

Mr. Farage – who led his party (UKIP) to victory in the 2014 European Parliamentary elections, to a whopping 4m votes in the 2015 UK general election, and mostly importantly, to Britain voting to leave the European Union in 2016 – has used the “People’s Army” moniker to describe his party’s supporters for years.

Introduced by Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump, he told the crowd that UKIP and Brexit campaigners had defeated the UK political establishment including the big banks, the corporations, the political classes, the pollsters, and the “liberal elite” by talking to people about controlling their country, their borders, and having self-respect for themselves.

He hit out at U.S. President Barack Obama, who visited Britain during the campaign and threatened to send the country “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the United States if Britain voted for Brexit.

Mr. Farage has previously called Mr. Obama “despicable” and said he refused to repeat his behaviour by telling Americans how to vote.

But echoing his words from an earlier interview with Breitbart London, Mr. Farage said: “I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if you paid me. In fact, I wouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton if she paid me!”

The crowd, massively receptive to Mr. Farage’s comments, cheered repeatedly when he mentioned how they too could defeat the political status quo…

Italy Earthquake Devastates Several Towns, Kills Dozens – Wall Street Journal

A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck central Italy early Wednesday, killing 120 people and leaving many trapped beneath the rubble of buildings that collapsed while they slept.

Italian soldiers and emergency crews were aiding the injured and searching for survivors in the hardest-hit towns of Amatrice, Pescara del Tronto and Accumoli, located close to the epicenter.

“The center of Amatrice is completely destroyed,” Nicola Zingaretti, president of the Lazio region, told Italian television. Aerial photos showed that the town was virtually flattened.

Immacolata Postiglione, head of emergency services for Italy’s Civil Protection Agency, confirmed the death toll. Earlier Wednesday, she told reporters in Rome: “There are people still under the rubble, so we fear that this number could rise further.”…

Army Confirms: Training Slide Lists Hillary Clinton As Insider Threat – Washington Examiner

An Army training presentation lists the woman who could be the next commander in chief as an insider threat, underneath the sailor who carried out the Navy Yard shooting.

A photo posted to the U.S. Army W.T.F! Moments Facebook page on Sunday shows an unclassified Army training slide on insider threats and handling classified information. An Army spokesman has since confirmed that the image is authentic.

On the slide are six photos, including one of Hillary Clinton, who sent classified information using her personal server.

The other photos show retired Gen. David Petraeus, who gave classified information to his biographer and mistress; Nidal Hasan, who carried out the Fort Hood shooting; Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor who exposed classified information before seeking asylum in Russia; Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard shooter; and Chelsea Manning, who gave classified information to WikiLeaks.

Maj. Thomas Campbell, a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command spokesman, confirmed that the photo showed a real training slide that was developed 18 months ago and used locally to teach best practices for handling classified information and maintaining operational security. The training slide has since been removed, he said.

“As is common with Army training requirements, the local unit was given latitude to develop their own training products to accomplish the overall training objective. This particular presentation had not been reviewed or approved by the unit’s leadership, and does not reflect the position of the Army,” Campbell said…

Hillary Helped Convicted Felon Get $10 Million For Haiti Scam – WorldNetDaily

Meet convicted felon Claudio Osorio, the Miami man serving a 12-year prison sentence who scammed American taxpayers out of $10 million and Haiti earthquake victims out of 500 homes – all with the help of the Clintons.

Osorio, 54, a pal of Bill and Hillary Clinton and President Obama, is a Clinton Foundation donor. He even hosted fundraisers for them at his waterfront home in Florida.

Obama Regime Paid Another $1.3 Billion To Iran; Can’t Say Exactly Who Got The Money – Washington Times

The State Department confirmed Monday that the Obama administration has paid Iran another $1.3 billion to settle a failed arms deal from 1979, but couldn’t describe who in the Iran government it paid, and couldn’t say what form that payment took – cash, check or otherwise.

The State Department also admitted it can’t guarantee that the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps wouldn’t be able to get its hands on the money eventually.

“We can always hand it over to someone who can hand it over to the IRGC,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters. Many in the U.S. see the IRGC as being responsible for helping to finance terrorism.

The administration agreed to pay Iran $1.7 billion to compensate that country for its payment to the U.S. in 1979 for military equipment. That deal fell through after Iran’s government was overthrown, and the Obama administration has said it owes Iran this money, plus interest.

The first installment of the payment was a $400 million cash payment, which has drawn criticism from Republicans. They say it looks like a ransom payment to ensure the release of American hostages who Iran released this year.

When asked how the remaining $1.3 billion was paid, Toner said he didn’t know.

“I’ll try my best to get details about that,” he said. He said the problem there is that the government generally doesn’t want to reveal entities that help the U.S. make these payments, since the U.S. has no direct financial relationship with Iran…

Birthday Boy Brings 363 Pizzas To Louisiana Flood Victims – USA Today

The day before Carson Boutte’s 9th birthday Saturday, his mom asked what he wanted as a present.

He said he wanted lunch – but not for himself.

“He said, ‘Really, I know all the poor people whose houses flooded… what I would really like to do is bring them lunch,’ said his mom, Lanie Boutte. “I suggested sandwiches and chips, and he added cookies.”

Later that night, the thought of making maybe 500 lunches herself was overwhelming.

“So my husband suggested pizza,” she said. “I said I would spend $100 since that’s what I was going to spend on Carson’s present. I decided to post it on Facebook in case any of my family wanted to chip in, too.”

But by Saturday, her message to her family had traveled much further, and people from throughout Youngsville and nearby Lafayette, La., were volunteering to help. Domino’s offered a special rate for the food as long as those who wanted to help mentioned her name and paid for the order ahead of time.

“I had no idea it would blow up,” she said. Regional Vice President “John Richards from Domino’s matched the first 100 pizzas ordered…

“They were really awesome. Perfect strangers came out to help deliver, and I couldn’t believe it,” Lanie Boutte said. “It was unbelievable.:

By the end of Carson’s birthday, 363 pizzas were served to flood victims, firefighters and police officers.

Over Last 10 Months, Leftist Judges Have Blocked Deportation Of Nearly 100,000 Illegal Aliens – Fox News

Immigration judges around the country are denying the Department of Homeland Security’s attempts to deport illegal immigrants in record numbers, according to a new report.

Over the last 10 months, immigration judges opted against the department’s efforts to remove some 96,223 illegal immigrants, including criminals, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a Syracuse University-based nonprofit.

At this rate, TRAC estimates the number of illegal immigrants allowed to remain in the U.S. despite DHS attempts to remove them will surpass last year’s breaking number of 106,676. With the court’s protection, subjects can often remain indefinitely.

“It’s concerning to me that the immigration courts are becoming such a frequently used back-door route to green cards,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute, noting these cases will be nearly 10 percent of the green cards approved in 2016.

“Many of them arrived illegally, and are being awarded legal status simply because they managed to stay a long time and have acquired family members here.”

One in four of the illegal immigrants allowed to stay in the country despite DHS efforts to remove them this year is from Mexico, TRAC reported.

Another 44 percent were from the three Central American countries – El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras – where vast numbers of unaccompanied minors and women with children have crossed the border to seek asylum…

Monmouth University Pollster Busted Manipulating Poll Data To Give Hillary Edge Over Trump – Conservative Treehouse

By now most CTH readers are familiar with the more notoriously biased polling manipulators. One of those is Patrick Murray from Monmouth University [@PollsterPatrick on Twitter].

If you want to know where his political affiliations lie, you only need to read his twitter feed. Murray has also been on Fox News with Bill O’Reilly several times selling his polling results to the unwitting audience.

Today, Monmouth via Patrick Murray presents a presidential poll of Ohio voters. The actual raw data (pdf available here – see pg, 6 and 7) showed Donald Trump with a lead in the result; however, Murray changed the data through weighting to show Hillary Clinton with a lead.

“GOUSAAMER114” pointed out the manipulation:

Monmouth just announced that Clinton leads Trump 43-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick actually laid out what he did on pages 6 and 7 of the PDF.

He sampled 402 voters. In the unweighted sample, the split was 33.3R/29.3D/35.6I. With that split, Trump leads Clinton 41-39 in Ohio. But Pollster Patrick re-weighted it to a 29R/33D/37I split. Nothing else was re-weighted.

It’s obvious Murray didn’t expect to be called out on it – because when confronted with what he did, pollster Patrick Murray flat out lied.

You can do the math yourself and see that no “weighting” was done by “region, age, race, or gender” only by party ID.

Just as a reminder “weighting” is the term used for actually changing the raw data to reflect the “assumptions” the pollster puts into the anticipated turnout of the election…

Company Hiring ‘Gintern’ To Travel Around Europe And Drink Gin – Huffington Post

Hand in your notice and collect your P45, because there’s an opening available for what might be the best job ever.

A company is looking to pay somebody up to £20,000 to join their business and drink gin for six months.

ILoveGin is a monthly gin and tonic club which helps subscribers (read: hipsters) discover new craft gins and mixers.

The company is looking for a ‘Gintern’ to while away their days trying new gins and mixers. The lucky so-and-so will also be required to find new brands to work with, travel around Europe visiting distilleries, pair gins and just generally inspire the public with their gin-filled wisdom.

Sadly, it’s not a full-time position and only runs for six months – but we’re sure that by that time your liver will need a holiday anyway.

The job requires you to visit between one and two new gin companies each week. The rest of the time you’ll be able to work remotely from home – or in that trendy coffee shop you’ve been dying to check out.

“The gintern will get to travel around the UK and parts of Europe discovering new gins to work with and of course sampling them,” reads the site.

“The role is flexible so you can work from home but you will need to travel, one day you might be up in Edinburgh tasting a new craft gin, the next going to a launch event in London for a new tonic water.”…

Democrat Governor Of Virginia Restores Voting Rights Of 13,000 Felons – Washington Times

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he has individually restored the voting rights of 13,000 felons, a move undertaken after the state Supreme Court rescinded a prior executive action that restored the right to vote en masse to more than 200,000 former inmates.

The Democratic governor said individual restoration orders were mailed out to the thousands of people who had had their restored voter registrations cancelled by the state on account of the court ruling. He said additional restorations, which must be done on a case-by-case basis, will be prioritized by the order of the convicted felons’ release from prison.

“We will restore first those who have waited the longest,” Mr. McAuliffe said in an announcement made at the Civil Rights Memorial in Richmond.

Individuals eager to have their rights restored may also contact the governor’s office to request an expedited review.

A voter registration application will be included with each individual restoration order that is mailed out, Mr. McAuliffe said. The names of those who have their rights restored will be published on the 15th of each month.

Republican lawmakers filed a lawsuit in April challenging the governor’s order to restore voting rights en masse to convicted felons who have finished their prison or jail sentences as well as any supervised release. They argued that the move violated the state’s separation of powers by effectively suspending the Virginia’s ban on voting by felons and said that Mr. McAuliffe was ignoring decades of practice that made clear the governor could only restore such rights on a case-by-case basis…

Federal Court Blocks Obama’s Transgender Directive Nationwide – Breitbart

A federal judge has ruled in favor of 13 states against President Barack Obama’s directive that public schools must allow students and adults to enter whatever bathrooms or showers they choose, a policy imposing transgenderism on the nation’s schools.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids any employer from discriminating on the basis of sex. In 1972, Congress added Title IX, requiring all schools receiving federal funds – which includes every public school nationwide – to provide separate facilities of equal quality for both male and female students.

On May 13, 2016, the Obama administration’s Department of Education sent a letter to every school system in America, informing them that regulations implementing Title IX require all schools to allow all children and adults to use whichever bathroom and shower facilities they choose to identify with, regardless of whether that gender identity is the same as their biological sex. This corresponded with other federal pronouncements reiterating that all employers are subject to this same requirement under Title VII…

Bahrain’s Prince Got Audience With Clinton After Donating $32 Million To Her Foundation – Daily Caller

Newly released Department of State documents reveal that the Crown Prince of Bahrain was given an audience with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after he donated $32 million to her foundation.

The documents, released Monday by Judicial Watch, included emails between Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band and former Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin, which appear to show that Abedin acted as a middleman between Clinton and her foundation’s donors.

Band and Abedin’s email exchanges show that Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman had to go through the Clinton Foundation in order to set up a meeting with Clinton after the former Secretary of State declined to meet after official requests were made.

The first email, dated June 23, 2009, shows Band interceding on behalf of the Crown Prince, noting he is a “good friend of ours.” Abedin replied that same day noting that Salman had asked to see Clinton through “normal channels,” but it appears Clinton was not interested. A later email, dated June 25, 2009, from Abedin to Band offers Salman a 10 A.M. meeting with Clinton. Abedin said she “reached out [through] official channels” to secure the meeting.

Salman was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, having pledged millions to the Clinton Global Initiative through the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CRISP). By 2010, he had given $32 million to the initiative. Additionally, the Kingdom of Bahrain is reported to have given between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, while Bahrain Petroleum gave $25,000 to $50,000…

Federal Reserve Paper Reveals Another $4 Trillion Needed To Fight Off Recession – Economic Collapse News

Budget deficits, subzero interest rates and money printing are solutions to combat an economic collapse, says a new Federal Reserve paper.

If the United States economy enters another disastrous recession, similar to what happened in 2008 and 2009, then the Federal Reserve may have to ignite a $4 trillion quantitative easing initiatives. This is the suggestion made in a brand new Fed staff working paper, authored by economist David Reifschneider.

The paper makes the case that historically low interest rates, the near $5 trillion balance sheet and the lackluster U.S. economic recovery could actually hinder the central bank’s use of conventional monetary policy tools in the event of another recession. In other words, the Fed would have a difficult time employing traditional tools to juice the national economy.

Here is what the Fed paper states:

“In the simulations. QE and forward guidance take 10yr yields down 225-300 bps depending on the starting point for fed funds and whether you do $2 trillion or $4 trillion for QE. But that is not going to work very well if by design fed funds and 10yr yields can’t go below zero. And if expected rates are already low then forward guidance does not have much room. Fed official will gave to keep a straight face while saying they we will keep rates at zero… forever.

“What makes it work is that QE and committing to low rates for longer gets the long rate down quickly and this compensates for the inability to take short rates down as far as you would want. In the unconstrained model, the maximum drop in short rates is almost 9 percentage points, almost twice as much as in the constrained model, but the QE/forward guidance lower takes (and keeps) long rates 75bps lower than when the Fed takes rates to zero and stops…

Child Suicide Bomber Behind “Heinous” Attack At Turkish Wedding That Killed At Least 51 – Zero Hedge

As the death toll from a deadly suicide bombing – which took place late on Saturday at a wedding party in the southern Turkish town of Gaziantep, near the southern border with Syria – rose to 51, with another 69 wounded of whom 17 were critical, Turkey’s president Erdogan issued a statement denouncing the “heinous” bombing and saying that IS was “the most likely perpetrator of the Gaziantep attack.” This was the deadliest attack in Turkey so far this year.

The remains of a suicide vest were recovered at the site, according to the state-run Anadolu Agency, with president Erdogan later adding that the perpetrator was a child between the ages of 12 and 14 year, whose bomb was remotely or self-detonated.

The bride and groom survived the attack, however the groom did suffer injuries, a local official said, as cited by Reuters. “The celebrations were coming to an end and there was a big explosion among people dancing,” 25-year-old Veli Can said, according to Reuters. “There was blood and body parts everywhere.”

Taking advantage of the attack to further his domestic agenda, Erdogan said there was “absolutely no difference” between the Islamic State, Kurdish rebels in the southeast of Turkey or Gulen’s supporters, saying they are all terrorist organizations. “These bloodthirsty organizations and the powers behind them have neither the will nor power to silence the calls to prayer, lower the flag, divide our motherland and break up our nation,” he said, as cited by AP.

Deputy Prime Minister Mehmet Simsek, who is in Gaziantep, said that Ankara would not “yield” to the terrorists…

Hillary’s Top Aide Was Working As Assistant Editor Of Radical Muslim Journal When It Blamed America For 9/11 – Daily Mail
.

.
Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11, it has been revealed.

Abedin, who could become the future White House chief of staff if Hillary wins the election, was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs until as late as 2008, NY Post reports.

The aide was at the journal in 2002 when her mother Saleha Mahmood Abedin, who remains editor-in-chief to this day, published an article which appeared to blame the US for bringing the 9/11 terror attacks on itself, according to the Post.

The article stated that the United States’ ‘spiral of violence’ was creating intense ‘anger and hostility’ while the sanctions and ‘injustices’ imposed on certain Muslim countries was creating a ‘time bomb’…

Far-Left Huffington Post Now Calling For Corrupt Clinton Foundation To Be Shut Down – Breitbart

The Huffington Post, one of the world’s most trafficked news sites, featured a headline on Sunday calling for the closure of the embattled Clinton Foundation. The left-wing outlet’s front page banner linked to a New York Times article, which highlights, among other things, that Bill and Hillary Clinton’s billion dollar nonprofit has “accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department – before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary – criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues.”

The Huffington Post is just the latest outlet to acknowledge that the explosive research, found first in Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer’s New York Times bestselling book Clinton Cash, has inspired a massive movement of journalists and political figures – on the left, right, and center – calling on the Clintons to dismantle their problematic nonprofit.

The Times piece shines the spotlight on “a deal involving the sale of American uranium holdings to a Russian state-owned enterprise” – another revelation first revealed in Clinton Cash – “…which involved major Clinton charitable backers from Canada…” as “another example of the foundation intersecting with Mrs. Clinton’s official role in the Obama administration.”

For weeks, the Democratic presidential candidate has been bombarded with questions about the apparent global nexus of influence peddling involving top aids to Clinton offering preferential treatment to million-dollar Clinton Foundation donors when she was the head of the State Department.

In a staggering sign of vulnerability, Bill Clinton told a room full of the foundation’s staff on Thursday that he will resign from the Clinton Foundation board if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November…

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton may soon have to answer questions about an estimated $6 billion in contract mismanagement, fraud and incompetence that happened under her watch at the Department of State.

Non-profit government watchdog Cause of Action Institute (CofA) filed a Freedom of Information Act request Friday for records related to a March 2014 management alert issued by the department’s Inspector General (IG).

U.S.-Mexico Border Agents Stop Thousands Of Middle Eastern Illegals With Forged Papers – Zero Hedge

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents working with Mexican immigration officials have found thousands of non-Hispanic illegal immigrants crossing Mexico’s southern border to make their way to Texas. As Breitbart details, the so-called “extra-continental” immigrants enter countries as far south as Brazil and make their way to the United States, often with forged travel documents.

“The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters [on its southern border] that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border,” a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told Reuters this week. The Reuters article confirmed the Syrian nationals reported at the Mexican border with Laredo last year by Breitbart Texas’s Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz are part of this growing pattern of illegal migration.

Since that time, the federal government has been largely silent on the numbers of what they call “Special Interest Aliens” (SIA) being captured in Texas and other border states. DHS assistant secretary for international affairs Alan Bersin told a House committee in March,

“While many citizens of these countries migrate for economic reasons or because they are fleeing persecution in their home countries, this group may include migrants who are affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, intelligence agencies, and organized criminal syndicates.”

The new information obtained by Reuters shows that 6,342 SIAs were apprehended at Mexico’s southern border. That number is up significantly from a 2015 total of 4,261 SIAs. Only 1,831 were reported for all of 2014 when Breitbart Texas’ Brandon Darby reported a leaked intelligence document from CBP official showing countries from all over the world were exploiting the porous southern border between the United States and Mexico. Most of those SIA tend to enter the U.S. through Texas…

President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.

In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”

Gang Members Chant “Black Lives Matter” While Beating Up White Victim – Real Strategy

Gang members chanted “black lives matter” as they viciously beat up a white victim in Charleston as part of an initiation ritual, a story that has received no national media attention.

In a video posted on Facebook, Brandon Reiter relates how he was driving home before picking someone up to “help them get home”.

A woman was “frantically waving her arms on the side of the road” and Reiter offered her a ride, reports Counton2.com.

When he arrived at the destination, Reiter’s passenger stole the tip money he had on his counter and when Reiter exited the vehicle, he was immediately surrounded by two black men and had a gun put to his head.

A member of the gang known as “Blue” ordered the other gang member to shoot Reiter, before Reiter was able to snatch the gun away and run back to his truck

However, other members of the gang were waiting for him and subjected Reiter to a brutal beat down that was part of a gang initiation ritual.

“It was a setup,” said Reiter, “There’s no way that many people would have been right there and it would have been so planned out.”

“I was kicked, punched, hit in the head with the gun, had my life threatened… they made him kick me, they made him punch me,” he said.

Federal Judge: Hillary Must Answer Written Questions In Judicial Watch Email Lawsuit – NBC News

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. ruled Friday that Hillary Clinton must answer written questions from a group that filed a lawsuit over her private email server.

Lawyers for Judicial Watch, a conservative government watchdog organization, asked to interview her under oath as part of their Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.

But Judge Emmet Sullivan said Friday that the group “has failed to demonstrate that it cannot obtain the discovery it seeks through other, less burdensome or intrusive means such as interrogatories.”

He gave the group until October 14 to give her the questions, and she has 30 days to answer them.

If the group wants to ask her follow-up questions in writing, it must go back to the judge and get permission.

The group is seeking the details of Huma Abedin’s relationship with the State Department that permitted her to do outside work while she was a top aide to Secretary Clinton.

Judicial Watch lawyers told the judge that only by interviewing Clinton under oath could they hope to learn why set up up a private e-mail server.

Today in Dimondale Michigan Donald Trump gave what was not only the best speech of his campaign but a speech that will one day be seen as a landmark in the emergence of a new Republican Party – a party finally returning to its roots as the party of Lincoln. If this sounds like hyperbole ask yourself what other Republican leader in recent memory has addressed America’s African American communities in this voice:

The African-American community has given so much to this country. They’ve fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the long march for Civil Rights. They’ve sacrificed so much for the national good. Yet, nearly 4 in 10 African-American children still live in poverty, and 58% of young African-Americans are not working. We must do better as a country. I refuse to believe that the future must be like the past.

Semi-Literate, Leftist Mayor Of Bankrupt City Denounces Critics As Racists – Daily Caller

The Democratic mayor of Petersburg, Va., has denounced all critics of his leadership as racist Republicans in a bizarre email replete with many grammatical errors.

Petersburg, a city of just 32,000 people, is battling severe budgetary issues. It has an expected budget deficit of $12 million and over $19 million in unpaid bills. The city is even in danger of losing its garbage pick-up service because of missed payments to the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority.

But Mayor W. Howard Myers says the many people critical of his administration are simply racists out to take him. And he makes his claim in a leaked email that are suggests he is barely literate in the English language.

The grammar of the letter is so atrocious that at times it’s difficult to deduce what Myers actually wants to say. Some of the most baffling lines include:

“Our economic and financial development is in crisis and until this Council set aside the foolishness of one and Facebook cronies, we will not be able to move forward.”
“No one Council member does it alone as always regurgitated
I will as the representative of Ward 5 and as Mayor duly to my right hand, serve the Public without blemish and from scare tactics from a few racists and Republicansupporters.”
“Vote your conscious not your election. “

EPA’s Absurd New Fuel Standards For Trucks Will Raise Upfront Costs – CNS

In a continued effort to address alleged man-made global warming, the Obama administration has finalized energy efficiency standards for medium and heavy-duty trucks. While the administration is pledging to reduce fuel use and cut greenhouse gas emissions, its stringent energy mandate will do nothing to affect climate change.

What it will do, however, is take decisions away from the American individuals and businesses and consolidate more power in Washington. The regulation requires a wide variety of vehicles – from school buses and passenger vans, to garbage and delivery trucks and long-haul tractor-trailers – to improve fuel efficiency.

This is the second round of fuel efficiency standards coming from the Obama administration, with this one covering model years 2021-2027.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s press release, owners of the vehicles need not worry about the higher upfront prices paid to implement new technologies because drivers will save money on fuel costs – an estimated total of nearly $170 billion, according to the EPA. The press release states that “The buyer of a new long-haul truck in 2027 would recoup the investment in fuel-efficient technology in less than two years through fuel savings.”

It is so considerate that the federal government would devote taxpayer-funded resources to create and enforce a regulation that will help trucking business’ bottom line.

It’s a bunch of hogwash…

As Trump Visits Flood-Ravaged Louisiana, Obama Golfs And Hillary Phones It In – Daily Wire

On Friday, Donald Trump made the brilliant political move of flying to Louisiana with vice presidential pick Mike Pence to hand out supplies and visit with those affected by the catastrophic flooding. The media covered the landing, but immediately downplayed the fact that two other major political figures didn’t show up in Louisiana: President Obama, who was too busy golfing, and Hillary Clinton, who was too busy sleeping in her crypt far beneath the spires of her castle in Transylvania.

Obama’s excuse, other than that he had to work on his short game, according to Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post: “he believes he can monitor the situation as well – or better – from where he is. And that the sole reason to go to Louisiana is for the theatrical piece of politics, a piece that he not only rejects but detests.”

State Department Admits Obama Is A Stinking Liar: $400M To Iran Was Ransom Money – Zero Hedge

If you define “ransom” as “a payment exchanged contingent on the release of a hostage” then you find yourself forced to admit that President Obama lied last week when he aggressively denied (and was irked at the question) that he paid Iran a $400 million ransom for the return of 4 hostages. Today, The State Department’s spokesperson John Kirby told the truth that the Iran payment was contingent on the prisoner release… but of course spun this ‘ransom’ payment as masterful diplomacy “deliberately leveraging the moment.”

As Bloomberg reports,

The U.S. withheld a $400 million cash payment to Iran earlier this year as leverage to ensure that American prisoners would be released as the country had promised, State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

“We were able to conclude multiple strands of diplomacy within a 24-hour period,” Kirby told reporters in Washington on Thursday. “We deliberately leveraged that moment.”

Kirby was responding to a report in the Wall Street Journal that the U.S. wouldn’t let Iran take control of the money – which the country was owed as part of a $1.7 billion settlement over a long-running dispute – until a plane carrying the American prisoners had left Iran in January.

Disputes over the timing of the payment have fueled criticism of the administration’s nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. While the U.S. has said talks over the release of the prisoners were held separately from last year’s negotiations on the payment and the nuclear deal, Kirby’s comments represented an acknowledgment that those two matters eventually converged…

Trump’s Support Among Blacks Increases By Over 500% In One Week – Breitbart

The Los Angeles Times/USC Dornsife national tracking poll of the presidential campaign picked up a sharp uptick in African-American support for Republican nominee Donald J. Trump, which it now pegs at 14.6 percent.

When the “Daybreak” poll began July 10, Trump‘s support among black voters was 4.6 percent and he fluctuated between 5.4 percent Aug. 1 and 2.5 percent Aug. 11.

The upswing in support for Trump – more than 500 percent above his low less than a week previous – comes after the New York City developer’s address Tuesday in the Milwaukee suburb of West Bend, Wisconsin.

Rick Perry Leads Ted Cruz By 9 Points In Hypothetical Senate Match-Up – The Hill

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) leads Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a hypothetical 2018 Senate primary match-up, a new poll finds.

The survey from left-leaning Public Policy Polling found Perry leading his former GOP presidential rival by 9 points, 46 percent to 37 percent, with 18 percent undecided, according to the Texas Tribune.

Perry is the only potential challenger that tops Cruz in the poll. Cruz holds a 22-point lead over Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) and a 32-point lead over Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas).

In a general election match-up with Democrats, the poll also showed Perry leading Housing Secretary Julián Castro, as well as former gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis by 12 points.

The survey also found that half of Republicans in the Lone Star State want Cruz to be their Senate nominee in 2018, compared to 43 percent who would rather have a different GOP candidate. Cruz also has a negative job approval rating, with 39 percent of Texas voters approving and 48 percent who don’t.

While Cruz is not up for reelection for two years, there’s already been speculation over a possible primary challenge.

Obama Dreamer Carjacks 91-Year-Old Woman, Throws Her Out Of Moving Vehicle – 100PercentFedUp

Police have a man in custody after officers say he carjacked a 91-year-old woman at gunpoint Tuesday and pushed her from her moving vehicle.

It happened about 1:30 p.m., at Independence and Hardesty avenues.

Police say a friend was driving the elderly woman to a drug store so she could pick up prescription medicine.

Police recovered the woman’s car in the northland, about a half hour after the carjacking.

At the drug store, officers say a Hispanic man approached the driver, a woman in her 60s, pointed a gun at her head and ordered her out of the car. Police say there was a brief struggle before the armed man took control of the car.

“The 91-year-old was still sitting in the passenger seat when the individual got in the car and started to take off,” said Darin Snapp, of the KCPD. “They had a short exchange of conversation. She said, ‘Are you stealing my car?’ He said ‘Yes.’ That’s when he forces her out of the passenger’s door, pushes her out. The vehicle is still moving when she is thrown out.”

Police say the elderly woman suffered injuries to her back and hip, but she’s lucky it’s mostly bruises. After police broadcast an alert, other officers spotted the car north of the river. There was a short chase, and the armed man bailed out of the car and tried to run away when police arrested him.

Police say they’re still trying to positively identify the suspect, who’s believed to be an illegal immigrant. He’s expected to face felony charges of eluding police and armed carjacking…

‘Human Sacrifice’ Ceremony At Geneva’s CERN Laboratory Investigated By Chiefs At Famous Science Center – Daily Mail

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has launched an investigation into a video filmed at night on its Geneva campus depicting a mock ritual human sacrifice, a spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The bizarre video which has circulated online for days shows several individuals in black cloaks gathering in a main square at Europe’s top physics lab, in what appears to be a re-enactment of an occult ceremony.

The video includes the staged ‘stabbing’ of a woman.

Air Force Officer Faces Investigation Over Bible On His Desk – Fox News

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is demanding an Air Force major be “aggressively punished” for having an open Bible on his desk at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo.

“It [the Bible] is very obviously a statement of Christian preference, Christian primacy,” MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein told me. “Had that been the Book of Satan or the Koran there would be blood in the freaking streets.”

He accused Maj. Steve Lewis, a supervisor at the Reserve National Security Space Institute, of “harboring and encouraging a truly abhorrent example of First Amendment civil rights violations.”

Mr. Weinstein is a fussy little fellow, isn’t he?

Col. Damon Feltman, the commander of the 310th Space Wing, told me they are reviewing the incident involving the Good Book.

“He has removed the Bible voluntarily because he didn’t want this to cause attention or disruption to his unit,” Col. Feltman said. “I’ve performed a walk-through of the office and everything seemed to be in compliance with Air Force regulation.”

So when will Maj. Lewis be able to return the Bible to his desk?

“I’m waiting on the unit commander’s review of the situation before making a final assessment,” the colonel said.

He stressed that Air Force personnel are free to exercise their constitutional rights to practice their own religion “as long as it is respectful of other individual’s rights to follow their own belief system in ways that support good order and discipline and don’t detract from (the) military mission.”…

$6.5 Trillion Missing From Defense Department – WorldNetDaily

A relatively obscure audit report from the Office of Inspector General of the United States Department of Defense suddenly is getting a lot of attention for what it apparently reveals: The Pentagon can’t account for $6.5 trillion.

At ArmstrongEconomics, the blog reported, “Once again, the office of inspector general has come up with a huge hole in the Department of Defense with a missing $6.5 trillion.”

The day before 9/11, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld admitted $2.3 trillion was missing from the Defense Department budget, noted the blog.

That figure has now grown to $6.5 trillion and counting.

To get a handle on its magnitude, a pile of $100 bills in that amount would be enough to make every man, woman and child in the states of Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota an instant millionaire.

The report, “Army General Fund Adjustments Not Adequately Documented or Supported,” started out with the goal of finding out whether the changes in the Army General Fund data during Fiscal Year 2015 to financial statements were “adequately documented and supported.”

Whether the economy is up or down, Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover” is a proven plan for financial fitness

The report concluded “the office of the assistant secretary of the army (Financial Management & Comptroller) (OASA[FM&C]) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis (DFAS Indianapolis) did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter journal voucher (JV) adjustments and $6.5 trillion in yearend JV adjustments occurred because OASA(FM&C) and DFAS Indianapolis did not prioritize correcting the system deficiencies that caused errors resulting in JV adjustments, and did not provide sufficient guidance for supporting system-generated adjustments.”…

Well, they got them and those very cameras are doing exactly what we all knew they would. They are proving that these shootings are in fact justified.

Did that stop these ignorant groups from rioting and burning down parts of cities? Nope! They do it anyway. The death of these criminals during crimes is NOT the actual reason for these riots, the rioters simply needed to find something that would make it appear as if their outrage was justified.

Guess what? It is NOT justified. None of the actions taken to date by ‘protesters’ has been because EVERY single shooting that they are protesting has been found to be justified in one way or another. They don’t protest when a 9-year-old black girl is shot in her room while doing homework, no , only when a career criminal trying to kill a cop gets shot by that cop! Come on America, it’s time to wake up. All of us, everywhere need to stop falling into the Democratic bait-traps!…

First Elected Somali In Minnesota Legislature Married Her Own Brother – Front Page

Are you feeling enriched by our newfound diversity yet?

Somali Ilhan Omar defeated 22-term incumbent Phyllis Kahn for the nomination of the DFL to serve as the representative of House District 60B in the state legislature. Omar came in first in a three-way primary race for the nomination in Tuesday’s primary. When elected, Omar will be the first Somali to serve in the Minnesota legislature.

As Scott Johnson at Powerline notes though, Omar has a very interesting background.

A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website here.

The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”

Don’t worry. The campaign has a great Hillaryesque response.

““There are people who do not want an East African, Muslim woman elected to office and who will follow Donald Trump’s playbook to prevent it. Ilhan Omar’s campaign sees your superfluous contentions as one more in a series of attempts to discredit her candidacy”…

Obama Releases 15 More Gitmo Terrorists In Largest Transfer Of Presidency – Washington Free Beacon

The U.S. approved the release of 15 detainees from the Guantanamo Bay military prison to the United Arab Emirates on Monday evening, marking the single largest transfer under the Obama administration.

The Pentagon said the transfer of 12 Yemenis and three Afghans from the U.S. facility in Cuba drops the total number of remaining detainees to 61-nearly four times lower than when President Obama first took office. In 2009, there were 242 men imprisoned at Guantanamo.

Obama reiterated his aim earlier this year to close down Guantanamo Bay by the end of his presidency, calling the prison “contrary” to U.S. values and a recruitment tool for terrorists.

U.S. law bars the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to American soil, which a bipartisan majority in Congress supports keeping in place, although the Obama administration is hoping lawmakers change their minds. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry have to negotiate with foreign leaders to resettle or repatriate the detainees.

Republican Rep. Ed Royce, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told the Wall Street Journal that the “cajoling and arm-twisting to get countries to accept these terrorists” is at times “pushing detainees on countries that can’t handle them.”

“Once again, hardened terrorists are being released to foreign countries where they will be a threat,” Royce said in a statement.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) released an unclassified Pentagon report last week detailing the extremist backgrounds of more than 100 detainees held or recently transferred from Guantanamo Bay…

Soros Hack Reveals Plot Behind Europe’s Refugee Crisis; Media Manipulation; Cash For “Social Justice” – Zero Hedge

In the two days since the Soros Open Society Foundation hack by the DCLeaks collective, several notable revelations have emerged among the data dump of over 2,500 documents exposing the internal strategy of the organization, which expose some of Soros’ tactics to influence and benefit from Europe’s refugee crisis, the opportunistic funding and influence of media organizations, providing cash for assorted “pro-democracy” groups including the infamous La Raza, Soros’ funding of various “social justice” organizations while paying to track unfavorable media coverage including that of Pamela Geller.

One particular leaked memo, profiled earlier by the Daily Caller, argues that Europe’s refugee crisis should be accepted as a “new normal,” and that the refugee crisis means “new opportunities” for Soros’ organization to influence immigration policies on a global scale.

Wonkette: Bill Clinton Raping A Woman Doesn’t Make Him Evil – Downtrend

Liberals are struggling with many things wrong with Hillary Clinton: her lies, her flip-flops, her scandals, her lawlessness, etc… but nothing is more troubling to the left, especially the female left, than Hillary’s serial rapist husband Bill. In easily one of the worst apology pieces ever, the editor and owner of Wonkette says yes, Bill is a rapist, but that doesn’t make him a bad guy or even a bad feminist. I guess as long as you are a democrat, you can stab puppies in the head and light nuns on fire and it’s all good.

To bring you up to speed on this piece, In the Spring of 1978, then Attorney General of Arkansas Bill Clinton invited himself to the hotel room of Juanita Broaddrick, a volunteer helping him run for governor of the state. He forced himself on her sexually, with her trying to fight him off. He proceeded to brutally rape her, ripping her clothes off and biting her lip during the attack. After the rape he told her not to worry because childhood mumps had left him sterile. This was 2 years before his daughter Chelsea was born.

With renewed interest in Bill’s rapey ways, Wonkette editor Rebecca Schoenkopf shared some random thoughts on this. First, some excusing of boys just being boys:

I can absolutely see Bill Clinton doing this (then, not now) and not even thinking of it as rape, but thinking of it as dominant, alpha sex. I can see a LOT of men doing that during that time period, before we started telling them in the ’80s, “hey, that is rape, do not do that.” I can see YOUR NICE GRANDPA doing that, back then.

The late 70’s wasn’t the stone ages. Rape was actually rape back then, especially a violent attack like Bill delivered on this poor woman…

Chairmen Of House Committees Lay Out Case For Perjury Charges Against Hillary To U.S. Attorney – TruthFeed

Trump Was Right: FOIA Document Shows Obama And Hillary Knew Their Actions Would Create ISIS – Gateway Pundit

A declassified and released FOIA document from 2012 shows that Obama and Hillary knew their actions would destabilize eastern Syrian and allow a Salafist principality to take hold of the region.

Judicial Watch released this 2012 document in 2015 after a FOIA request.

Russia Insider reported:

The latest “OMG, Trump said that!” moment is The Donald’s claim that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are, correspondingly, the “founder” and “cofounder” of ISIS. True to form, the media reaction has been to shriek in outrage that he would cast aspersions on such august personages.

As of this writing, not one American media source of which this writer is aware has brought up in relation to Trump’s claims the August 2012 report (declassified and released in 2015 under a FOIA request from Judicial Watch) from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) stating that “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.”.

The “supporting powers” are identified as “western countries” (no doubt including and led by the United States), “the Gulf States” (presumably including and led by Saudi Arabia), and “Turkey” (just Turkey).

In August 2012 the Secretary of State at the time was one Hillary Rodham Clinton. The President was and still is one Barack Hussein Obama.

The DIA report said, in essence, that if we (the U.S. and our local cronies) keep aiding al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other such sterling democrats, something really nasty would arise in eastern Syria. Several months later, it did, when ISIS declared itself a state straddling the Syria-Iraq border…

Obama Regime Hides $25 Million In Payments To Lawyers Suing Under Environmental Laws – Daily Caller

Groups concealed by the government have raked in $25 million in legal fees from federal agencies through lawsuits under three environmental laws since 2009, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis found.

The Department of Treasury’s Judgment Fund database tracks how much federal agencies have paid out for lawsuits and court settlements, but doesn’t track the names of the individuals or groups that are actually suing the government.

More than $49 million in taxpayer funds was paid to lawyers suing the Obama administration under three major environmental statutes, TheDCNF found. Environmental activists have gotten millions from taxpayers suing the government to expand federal regulation.

But further analysis revealed that more than half of those payments went to groups the federal government concealed.

Treasury isn’t keeping complete data on law firms, and activist groups getting taxpayer dollars has transparency advocates worried. The department also frequently redacts names of attorneys getting tax dollars under the Privacy Act, according to an attorney with the Judgement Fund.

“It’s no surprise the Treasury Department is hiding who gets the money in these transactions,” Adam Andrzejewski, Founder and CEO of transparency group OpenTheBooks.com, told TheDCNF. “Because these suits involve the federal government, taxpayers have a right to know where their tax dollars are going and what agendas they’re advancing.”…

Hillary Drafts Illegal ‘Dreamers’ To Get Immigrants To Vote – Washington Examiner

Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Sunday announced a program to recruit undocumented “Dreamers” into a voter registration army even though they are not allowed to vote.

Celebrating the four-year anniversary of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Clinton launched “Mi Sueno, Tu Voto” (My Dream, Your Vote), to rally and “secure commitments” from immigrants who can vote.

The DACA program created so-called “Dreamers,” the children of illegal immigrants who the president has offered renewable two-year work visas and deportation deferral. The goal for many in the program is amnesty.

On Monday, the Democratic National Committee also heralded the DACA anniversary and said that Clinton will go further than Obama as president…

Governor Walker Activates National Guard In Milwaukee Following BLM Riots – Politistick

After a night of anarchy and mayhem in Milwaukee on Saturday night, including lighting buildings and cars on fire, Republican Governor Scott Walker announced that he was activating the Wisconsin National Guard following a request from Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

Walker tweeted both his official statement and the executive order to put the National Guard on alert Sunday morning.

It should be noted that the police officer who shot the criminal was black, making it more difficult for terrorist groups like Black Lives Matter to claim that the shooting was racially motivated.

Milwaukee police reported that photo evidence shows that the black man shot be police was “without question” holding a gun in his hand and that the man, identified as Sylville K. Smith had a “lengthy police record.”

‘Black Lives Matter’ Leader Arrested Multiple Times For Impersonating Police Officer – Law Officer

An outspoken member of the Black Lives Matter movement in Atlanta is on probation for perhaps the last reason one might imagine. Fox5Atlanta.com reports Tyree “Sir Maejor” Page, has been arrested multiple times in the past few years for impersonating a police officer.

According to the report, Page was first charged with impersonating an officer after an incident in December 2014 where he allegedly handcuffed an African American woman while “wearing a replica of the Atlanta police officer uniform.” A police report obtained by the news station says Page was also armed with a .45 semi-automatic pistol at the time of the incident. Page told officers he was working as a security guard at the time.

Page was reportedly at it again in October 2015 when he was arrested outside a MARTA station after demanding to see identification from an individual who happened to be an Atlanta Police Department sergeant. At the time of that arrest, police say Page was in tactical gear and was wearing a bulletproof vest.

The news station uncovered court records indicating another arrest after a particularly brazen incident in January of 2016 where Page allegedly impersonated an FBI agent to get past security at a state office building. Page was allegedly armed during this incident as well, with one witness telling police, he “had more weapons than I ever seen an officer wear.”

In addition to claiming he was a security guard, Page also reportedly told police he was dressed in tactical gear because he was bounty hunter. However, neither the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office or the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office had any record of Page registering as a bounty hunter…

Cost Of Obamacare Medicaid Expansion 49% Higher Than Previously Estimated – CNS

A government report finds that the cost of expanding Medicaid to millions more low-income people is increasing faster than expected, raising questions about a vital part of President Barack Obama’s health care law.

The law provided for the federal government to pay the entire cost of the Medicaid expansion from 2014 through the end of this year.

Obama has proposed an extra incentive for states that have not yet expanded Medicaid: three years of full federal financing no matter when they start. But the new cost estimates could complicate things.

In a recent report to Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said the cost of expansion was $6,366 per person for 2015, about 49 percent higher than previously estimated.

“We were told all along that the expansion population would be less costly,” said health economist Brian Blase with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University in Virginia. “They are turning out to be far more expensive.” Blase previously served as a GOP congressional aide.

The new estimates could be a warning light for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who has promised that if elected president she would work to expand Medicaid in the remaining 19 states that have not done so. Higher costs would make it harder for a President Clinton to sell Obama’s full-financing plan to Congress…

Thomas (Hotch) Gibson Fired From ‘Criminal Minds’ For Kicking Writer – Hollywood Reporter

Thomas Gibson’s time on CBS’ Criminal Minds has come to an end.

“Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds. Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date,” producers ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios said in a statement.

The dismissal follows news that the actor – who had been on the veteran procedural since its start – kicked a writer on-set. As of Thursday, Gibson was facing a two-episode suspension following the incident. His character was to be written out of both episodes, with that now turning into being written out of the series on which he has starred for 11 seasons.

The incident occurred while Gibson was directing an episode of the drama’s upcoming 12th season when he had a dispute with the hour’s writer, who also happened to be on-set. Insiders say they got into an argument and tempers on both sides flared, with Gibson said to have instinctively reacted to aggression and kicked the writer.

“I love Criminal Minds and have put my heart and soul into it for the last 12 years,” Gibson said in a statement to THR on Friday. “I had hoped to see it through to the end, but that won’t be possible now.

Egyptian Judo Fighter Refuses To Shake Israeli’s Hand After Losing Match To Him At Olympics – New York Post

An Egyptian judo star refused to shake hands with his Israeli opponent after a controversial match at the Olympics, according to reports.

Islam El Shehaby left Or Sasson hanging – by backing away and shaking his head – when Sasson put out his hand Friday, CBS reported.

El Shehaby had lost in the final two minutes of the first round – and the handshake snub sparked loud booing, CBS reported.

His rebuff was a breach of judo etiquette, in which competitors typically bow or shake hands at the beginning and end of a match as a sign of respect.

The disrespectful gesture came after weeks of pressure on El Shehaby from Islamic extremists to pull out of the match with his Jewish opponent, according to reports.

On Thursday, Mataz Matar, an Islamist network TV host, demanded that El Shehaby withdraw.

“My son watch out, don’t be fooled, or fool yourself thinking you will play with the Israeli athlete to defeat him and make Egypt happy. Egypt will cry; Egypt will be sad and you will be seen as a traitor and a normalizer in the eyes of your people,” he said, according to CBS.

At Least Four Killed And Dozens Injured In Series Of Coordinated Terrorist Attacks In Tailand – Daily Mail

At least four people have been killed and dozens more injured in a series of co-ordinated attacks across tourist destinations in Thailand that saw bombs hidden in plant pots and flower beds detonated by mobile phones.

Western tourists fled in terror as the first two blasts hit the seaside resort of Hua Hin overnight, killing one Thai woman and one other and wounding 21 people.

At least one British national was reportedly among those injured in the twin bomb attack, which targeted a busy street filled with bars and restaurants. The town was also hit by small explosions on Friday morning.

Hours later two small bombs were detonated in the beach town Patong, Phuket, another area popular with foreign tourists. One man was said to have been ‘lightly wounded’ in the attack. His nationality is not yet known.

Thai police and media have also reported similar strikes in the southern regions which killed one person in Surat Thani and and another in Trang, with both used as stop-off points for many visitors travelling on to the country’s islands.

There were also reports of blasts or fires in Phang Nga and Krabie.

Thai officials have said they believe the attacks were carried out locally and are not terror related. There is some suggestion they were launched by the opponents of the ruling junta, which recently bolstered its military power…

Joint FBI-U.S. Attorney Probe Of Clinton Foundation Underway – Daily Caller

Multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation, according to a former senior law enforcement official.

The investigation centers on New York City, where the Clinton Foundation has its main offices, according to the former official who has direct knowledge of the activities.

Prosecutorial support will come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices – a major departure from other centralized FBI investigations.

The New York-based probe is being led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.

The official said involvement of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York “would be seen by agents as a positive development as prosecutors there are generally thought to be more aggressive than the career lawyers within the DOJ.”

Bharara’s government biography notes that he, “has applied renewed focus on large-scale, sophisticated financial frauds by creating two new units – the Complex Frauds Unit and the complementary Civil Frauds Unit.

“The Civil Frauds Unit has collected close to $500 million in settlements since its inception, including multi-million dollar settlements with Deutsche Bank and CitiMortgage for faulty lending practices and other fraudulent conduct.”…

The 2015 version of an annual survey of intelligence analysts and their managers conducted by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) discovered that 40 percent of the analysts surveyed who were working for the U.S. military’s Central Command – whose area of responsibility includes Syria and Iraq – said “they had experienced an attempt to distort or suppress intelligence in the past year.”

This survey result was affirmed in an interim report released today by a Joint Task Force formed by the chairmen of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House Armed Services Committee and the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense.

The task force includes Rep. Ken Calvert (R.-Calif.), who is a member of the appropriations committee; Rep. Mike Pompeo (R.-Kan.), who is a member of the intelligence commmittee; and Rep. Brad Wentrup (R-Ohio), who serves on the intelligence and armed services committees…

Nearly 100 People Shot In Democrat-Run Chicago In Less Than A Week – Chicago Tribune

Nearly 100 people have been shot in Chicago in less than a week, pushing the number of shooting victims so far this year to more than 2,500 – about 800 more than this time last year, according to data kept by the Tribune.

Between last Friday afternoon and early Thursday, at least 99 people were shot in the city, 24 of them fatally. At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data. Among the wounded that day was a 10-year-old boy shot in the back as he played on his front porch in Lawndale.

The number of shooting victims in Chicago stood at 2,514 Thursday morning. At this time last year, 1,725 people had been shot. The city has not seen this level of gun violence since the 1990s, a trend the Police Department has blamed on lax gun laws and feuding gang factions.

Over eight hours from Wednesday evening through early Thursday, three people were killed and at least 10 others were wounded in the city.

A 45-year-old man was killed and two others were wounded when someone walked up to their van in the Gresham neighborhood around 1:55 a.m. Thursday, yelled “Hey” and started shooting, police said.

The three – two men and a woman – had been stopped at a stop sign in the 8000 block of South Marshfield Avenue when the gunman opened fire, police said. The van took off, made a left turn on 78th Street and stopped, police said.

The 45-year-old man was shot in the back and forearm. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and was pronounced dead, police said…

Obama Regime Sued By Western Energy Alliance For Illegally Canceling Oil And Natural Gas Lease Sales – The Hill

An energy trade group is suing the Obama administration over canceled oil and natural gas lease sales in the West.

The Western Energy Alliance on Thursday sued the Interior Department and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), saying they are breaking congressional mandates by canceling several lease sales over the past two years.

The group, which represents oil and natural gas companies, said the administration is working too closely with the anti-fossil fuel activists who have pushed officials to end lease sales on federal land.

“Through protests and petitions, the Keep-It-In-The-Ground movement is trying to coerce BLM into violating the law by stopping all leasing on federal lands,” Kathleen Sgamma, the group’s vice president of government and public affairs, said in a statement.

“Yet without doing anything, activists could achieve the same goal just by leaving BLM to its own devices. Western Energy Alliance is simply asking the courts to compel BLM to follow decades-old law and hold quarterly lease sales in every oil and natural gas state.”

Federal law directs the BLM to hold four lease sales annually in a handful of oil- and gas-producing states in the West, but the agency has canceled or postponed several such auctions there since 2015.

Environmental advocates have threatened to protest several of the lease sales as part of their effort to ban fossil fuel development on federal land…

Government Incompetence Update: Dangerous Fugitives Living In Taxpayer-Funded Public Housing – Daily Caller

Federal law bans fugitives from living in taxpayer-funded public housing, and federal officials have no idea how many criminals are doing it anyway.

An estimated 1,300 felony fugitives were found living in federally funded homes in just one region of the country in 2012. Local public housing authorities refused to evict them, according to an unpublished Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General (IG) investigation first reported July 26, 2016, by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Those residents faced warrants for crimes ranging from felony theft to rape and murder. But four years later, HUD officials don’t know what happened to the 1,300, or how many live in taxpayer-funded residences now.

“No data to report to you,” agency spokesman Brian Sullivan told TheDCNF after repeated inquiries over a nearly three-week period.

It’s unclear if the original 1,300 fugitives were ever arrested or evicted. The IG report was never made public because of “questions about the validity of the data,” IG spokesman Darryl Madden previously told TheDCNF. He refused to provide details.

Madden called the report a “draft,” though the document lacked the typical markings used to indicate that status.

Regardless, the IG’s report was labeled as a potential “systemic” issue, which suggests investigators are concerned local authorities are refusing to evict fugitives from federally funded housing across the country…

Cuban Woman Indicted In Florida For Marriage Fraud With 10 Illegal Aliens – Breitbart

A Cuban U.S. resident who has more marriages to her name than Zsa Zsa Gabor has now been indicted for immigration fraud, after allegedly being paid to wed 10 illegal immigrants.

Prosecutors say Yosandra Piedra Vasquez was paid to marry the 10 illegal immigrants to secure them legal status in the U.S., according to Agence France-Presse. The Cuban-born bride married seven illegal immigrants in south Florida and three in Georgia between 2002 and 2012.

A federal grand jury handed down the indictment charging Vasquez and her crime partner Yoel de Moya Lozada – who allegedly recruited interested customers for Vasquez. They are charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and conspiracy to encourage and induce an alien to live in the U.S. illegally, according to AFP.

The indictment comes as an increasing number of Cuban migrants are making their way to the Texas border via Central America.

Vasquez and Lozada, AFP quoted the indictment, ”did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with each other (…) to arrange fraudulent marriages.”

Vasquez married her first fake husband “J.A.G” 2002, then “ N.E.M.” in 2006, according to In Cuba Today. She married “C.R.R.K.” and “ P.A.G.G.” and another unidentified individual in 2008. She married another three men in 2009, “F.A.G.C.,” “L.C.D.P.,” and “G.M.” In 2010, she married “N.F.R.F.” and finally in 2012 she married “G.M.F.”

“Using one’s immigration status for fraudulent purposes, such as in this case, is a serious crime,” said Kathy A. Redman, Southeast Regional Director for USCIS, said according to In Cuba Today…

Democrat Regulators Trying To Stifle Free Speech Online… Again – Washington Free Beacon

A leading federal regulator is renewing efforts to restrict political speech on the internet in what critics are describing as an extra-legal campaign to censor political groups, nonprofits, and even online news organizations.

Democratic Federal Election Commissioner Ann Ravel moved this week to deny a conservative nonprofit group legal protections that exempt most online political communications from federal political spending limits and disclosure laws.

Experts say the move is an attempt to undermine the “internet exemption,” as the provision is known, without going through normal legislative and regulatory processes. In effect, they say, Ravel was denying legal protections to the group simply because she disagrees that those protections should exist.

Ravel’s move came as the FEC weighed a complaint against the Foundation for a Secure and Prosperous America, a conservative nonprofit that ran television ads last year attacking Sen. Rand Paul’s (R., Ky.) support for the nuclear deal with Iran.

The FEC’s six commissioners unanimously ruled that the group’s failure to report expenditures associated with the ads did not violate federal law, since they focused on a legislative issue and did not call for the election or defeat of a political candidate.

However, the commissioners split on a separate question. In its legal analysis, the FEC’s general counsel noted that four YouTube videos cited in the complaint against the foundation would have been legally permissible even if they had engaged in “express advocacy.”…

Hillary Propped Up By Man To Keep From Falling Over During Campaign Speech – Gateway Pundit

A photo from April shows now-Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton being firmly held up by a man on her right side to keep her from falling over as she addressed an overflow crowd during a campaign stop in Los Angeles, while a man on her left side is seen urgently extending his arm to aid in propping up Clinton. Obscured behind Clinton is a third person whose extended hand can be seen reaching out to steady her left arm.

The man holding Clinton up has one hand clasping her right hand and his other hand grasping her bicep. Clinton is leaning forward speaking to the crowd using a microphone held in her left hand.

The photo by Mark Ralston with AFP/Getty Images was published with the caption:

“US Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks to the overflow crowd who were unable to get into the venue during a campaign rally at the Southwest College in Los Angeles, California on April 16, 2016. / AFP / Mark Ralston (Photo credit should read MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)”

Another photo taken by Ralston from the same perspective shows Clinton was standing on a large, square concrete platform meant for sitting that was wide enough to hold several standing people. Clinton is seen standing alone and unaided in that photo.

It is not clear what made Clinton lose her balance such that three people had to rush to keep her from falling down…

A teenage Subway employee was arrested Monday in Utah after investigators say the sandwich shop worker purposely tainted a police officer’s drink with illegal drugs.

Tanis Lloyd Ukena, 18, was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of felony surreptitious administration of a poisonous substance, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Authorities say the teen was working the drive-thru of Subway in nearby Layton when an unidentified law enforcement officer in uniform dropped by earlier that afternoon and ordered a lemonade. After reviewing surveillance camera footage and conducting tests on the drink, investigators determined that the employee deliberately drugged the cop – a second-degree felony.

Senator Sessions Highlights 20 ‘Vetted’ Terrorist Refugees As Obama Ramps Up Admissions From Terror Hot-Spots – Breitbart

The Obama Administration’s ongoing effort to admit tens of thousands of refugees from Syria and other hotbeds of terrorism endangers the safety of the United States and has already had dire domestic consequences, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest warns.

“Despite a clear nexus between immigration and terrorism, and warnings from top officials in his own Administration about their inability to properly vet refugees, President Obama remains in denial about the dangers that his policies pose to the United States,” Sessions said in a statement Wednesday.

To Sessions, Obama’s refugee plan is reckless and fails to consider the real perils of a refugee flow that has already been infiltrated by terrorists in the past. The Alabama lawmaker said, “the Obama Administration leads the United States down a dangerous path – admitting as many refugees as possible from areas of the world where terrorists roam freely, and granting a temporary amnesty to Syrians living in the United States illegally. And contrary to the assertions made by many, the potential for future terror activity is real.”

According to Sessions, the administration should be seeking out locations of refuge for displaced migrants close to their homelands so that they might be able to return once the conflict is over. Instead, however, the Obama Administration has pursued a plan of further displacement, promising to bring at least 10,000 Syria refugees to U.S. shores by the end of this fiscal year – as Sessions noted, a nearly 500 percent increase over FY 2015 when just 1,600 Syrian refugees were admitted to the U.S.

“This radical increase places the safety and security of the American people at risk, there will surely be consequences,” Sessions said…

Email Shows Hillary’s Chief Of Staff At State Department Covered Up Unsecured, Private Server For Years – Daily Beast

The top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was told in late 2012 that a non-profit watchdog group had requested information about Clinton’s email, including the number of accounts she used, according to documents released Wednesday.

The aide, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and other Clinton advisers knew at the time that the secretary was using a private email system to conduct official business. But despite the information request, the State Department told the group that it had found no “responsive” records.

“This is evidence that Cheryl Mills covered up Hillary Clinton’s email system,” Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, a conservative group that sued for information about that original 2012 request, said in a statement. “She was aware of the [Freedom of Information Act] request about Clinton’s email accounts and allowed a response to go out that was a plain lie. And you can bet if Cheryl Mills knew about this inquiry, then Hillary Clinton did, too.”…
