Hillary Clinton Given Larger Podium Than Donald Trump At Debate To Make Up For Height Disadvantage – New York Daily News

Hillary Clinton says that we’re “stronger together,” but even she can’t deny Donald Trump is taller.

The Democratic nominee, who is 5-foot-4, has apparently enlisted the help of a raised podium for the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, who is 6-foot-3, Monday night, photos of the two podiums show.

According to WABC’s Rita Cosby, one of the two podiums inside the debate hall at Hofstra University, in Hempstead, N.Y., is larger than the other.

It is believed that the larger one was built at Clinton’s request to make her appear taller than she is.

The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to questions about whether the Democratic nominee would be using a raised podium at Monday night’s debate. The Commission on Presidential Debates, which organizes the debates, did not respond to questions either.

However, multiple outlets had reported last week that the Clinton campaign had asked the CPD if the Democratic nominee could use a raised podium to avoid appearing 10 inches shorter than Trump.

Monday’s debate between Clinton and Trump will begin at 9 p.m. and will run for 90 minutes without commercial interruption.

It is the first of three between the two major party nominees. The other two are scheduled for Oct. 9, in St. Louis, and Oct. 19, in Las Vegas.

The CPD has also scheduled a vice presidential debate on Oct. 4 at Longwood University in Farmville, Va…

NYC Bombing Suspect Is No Lone Wolf, But A Terrorist With A Family Of Sympathizers – New York Post
.

.
Last weekend’s NYC bombing is yet another case of terrorism and hatred for America not being isolated to a “lone wolf” but running in the family. We’ve seen this horror before, in Orlando, San Bernardino, Chattanooga and Boston – Muslim families playing dumb after their son goes on a terrorist rampage, only to find out later that the family sympathized with terrorism.

The latest evidence is damning: Two days before Ahmad Rahami allegedly planted the Chelsea bomb that injured 31, a family member’s cellphone video camera was used to film him testing bombs in the back yard of the New Jersey residence/chicken shack where he had lived and worked with his parents. After one “cylindrical” device explodes, unidentified people are overheard laughing on the recording, an FBI document reveals.

The video isn’t the only piece of evidence suggesting the fiend’s family may have known about his plot…

‘Trump Army’ Planning To Flood Polling Stations With Red – WorldNetDaily

When, after the 2012 election, it was discovered that there were oddities in the voting, such as the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions where Mitt Romeny got zero votes, to Barack Obama’s 19,605, WND reported on the Big List of vote fraud reports.

Including reports like that from a poll watcher in Pennsylvania who told WND up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station there reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected.

Or the report from Chicago elections worker Steve Pickrum who told WND as an equipment manager for the elections system, he was called when a voting machine malfunctioned.

He said, “On early voting when I did work on the floor when voters needed help using the equipment, I was able to see the preference of the voter, and every time that I saw [a] voter voted for Romney a ‘voter save failure’ message came up on the screen.” Then when he went on election day to vote himself, he picked Romney and experienced the same error message. He reported he never experienced the error message when the voter was choosing Barack Obama.

There’s no doubt questions continue to arise, with CBS in Colorado reporting just this week on the results of its review of voters who are dead nevertheless still submitting mail-in ballots or even showing up polling stations.

Secretary of State Wayne Williams said in that report, “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred.”

For example, Sara Sosa died on Oct. 14, 2009. However, the CBS4 investigation found her successful ballots cast in Colorado elections in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013…

Washington Post Begs Readers: Please Stop Calling Us ‘The Media’ – Information Liberation

Now that trust in the media has fallen to an all-time low, The Washington Post is begging its readers not to refer them as part of it.

The actual article is a pathetic attempt at rebranding now that they’re rightly the most hated people in America, nonetheless it’s hilarious.

From The Washington Post:

I’m writing because I have a request: Please stop calling us “the media.”

Yes, in some sense, we are the media. But not in the blunt way you use the phrase. It’s so imprecise and generic that it has lost any meaning. It’s – how would you put this? – lazy and unfair.

Fact is, there really is no such thing as “the media.” It’s an invention, a tool, an all-purpose smear by people who can’t be bothered to make distinctions…

Leaked FBI Data Reveal 7,700 Terrorist Encounters In U.S. In One Year; Border States Most Targeted – Breitbart

Leaked documents with sensitive FBI data exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border. The incidents are characterized as “Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters.” Some of the encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border at ports-of-entry and some occurred in between, indicating that persons known or reasonably suspected of being terrorists attempted to sneak into the U.S. across the border. In all, the encounters occurred in higher numbers in border states.

Some of the documents pertain to the entire U.S., while others focus specifically on the state of Arizona. The documents are labeled, “UNCLASSIFIED/LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE” and contain data from the FBI-administered Terrorist Screening Center, the organization maintaining the Terrorist Screening Database, also known as the “Terror Watch List.”

The leaked FBI data are contained in a fusion center’s educational materials, specifically the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center’s (ACTIC) “Known or Suspected Terrorist (KST) Encounters Briefing” covering from July 20 2015 through July 20 2016. The leaked documents are composed of 10 individual pages, but Breitbart Texas chose to release only nine of them due to page 10 containing contact information for ACTIC.

Man’s Anti-Hillary Demonstration At Capitol So “Disturbing” He’s Immediately Detained By Police – Fury News

As Americans citizens, we have certain unalienable rights granted to us under the U.S. Constitution. One of our God-given rights is the First Amendment, and being able to openly express our opinions, despite how unpopular our viewpoints might seem to others. We are constantly forced to endure liberals’ disgusting antics all in the name of “freedom of speech,” as we witness morons burning and defecating on our nation’s flag, or refusing to stand when National Anthem is played.

But when a Conservative man decided to exercise his First Amendment rights over the weekend at our nation’s capitol by holding an anti-Hillary demonstration, his freedoms were immediately trampled upon.

Back in 1996, Hillary held a speech in New Hampshire, speaking in support of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act that her husband, then president Bill Clinton signed into law…

Miami Marlins Ace Pitcher Jose Fernandez Dies In Boating Accident – ESPN

Miami Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was killed in a boating accident in Florida early Sunday morning.

Spokesman Lorenzo Veloz of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a news conference Sunday that Fernandez, 24, was one of three men killed in the accident.

The Coast Guard arrived on the scene around 3 a.m. to find a 32-foot boat upside down on a jetty off Miami Beach. Two of the victims were found dead under the vessel. One was found dead in the water. None of the deceased was wearing a life vest.

Fernandez died from trauma – not drowning, Veloz said.

The names of the other two individuals initially were withheld pending notification of relatives, the Coast Guard said. On Monday, the Miami-Dade medical examiner confirmed to ESPN that the names of the others were Emilio Macias, 27, and Eduardo Rivero, 25.

No further details could be provided on their connection to Fernandez because the case remains under investigation. However, the next of kin have been notified, the spokesperson said.

Speed is suspected to be a factor in the accident because of the impact with the jetty, Veloz said. There was no evidence of alcohol or illegal drug use.

“It does appear that speed was involved due to the impact and the severity of it,” Veloz said, adding that the boat was owned by a friend of Fernandez’s. “It does appear to be that they were coming at full speed when they encountered the jetty and the accident happened.”

The Marlins announced that Sunday’s game at home against the Atlanta Braves was canceled…

‘Hispanic’ Cascade Mall Shooter Is Actually A Hillary-Supporting, Turkish Muslim Named Arcan Cetin – Fire Andrea Mitchell

hey finally got the Cascade Mall Shooter who killed five last night and escaped. The liberal media immediately blamed it on a “Hispanic” male. Turns out, Arcan Cetin, the shooter is a Turkish Muslim from Adana, Turkey. I know a lot of Hispanic people, but I have never met one born in Turkey. Imagine that. The corrupt Clinton Media Complex’s rush to call Arcan Cetin a “Hispanic” and claim that this wasn’t terrorist have egg on their faces, yet again. This explains why the media completely dropped coverage of the Cascade Mall Shooting. Whenever there’s a shooting like the, the media is tooting their gun control BS 24/7. This story however just disappeared. Now we know why.

Here’s another reason. Arcan Cetin, the Turkish terrorist is also a supporter of Hillary Clinton.

More Proof Of Hillary’s Eye Problems – American Mirror

Hillary Clinton has “postponed” a second appearance of the week amid more evidence she may have a problem with her eyes.

Video of a brief Hillary Clinton press conference this week shows her eye problems weren’t just limited to a rally in Philadelphia.

A review of a press availability in a hangar at the White Plains, New York airport shows the incident of her eyes seemingly not syncing was not a one-time issue.

On numerous occasions, Clinton’s left eye could be seen turning more than her right.

It was the second time her eyes did not appear to be in sync with one another.

In Philadelphia, as The American Mirror was the first to report, Clinton’s left eye was frequently crossing during a speech to Temple University students.

Writing for The Hill, Dr. John R. Coppedge observed:

It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve. That nerve serves only one function and that is to make the lateral rectus muscle contract. That muscle turns the eye in the direction away from the midline.

It comes out of the base of the brain and runs along the floor of the skull, immediately beneath the brain before coursing upward to the eye. Dysfunction of that muscle causes the striking picture of the eyes not aiming in the same direction and causes the patient to suffer double vision.

Like all things medical, there is a long list of potential causes but in my opinion the most likely one, based on Clinton’s known medical history is an intermittent lateral rectus palsy caused by damage to or pressure on her sixth cranial nerve…

Hillary Forgot Classified Documents In Russian Hotel Room – Sputnik

U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton forgot classified documents at a hotel in Russia during a trip as secretary of state, documents released by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation show.

The documents, released on Friday and cited by ABC News, show that when Clinton was on a trip to Russia while serving as US secretary of state, her aide brought a classified briefing book into the hotel suite. The classified documents were left behind when the aide and Clinton left the room.

According to the FBI documents, the briefing book should not have been brought into the hotel suite in Russia. Most of Clinton’s emails recovered by the FBI will reportedly not be made public until after the US presidential elections in November. The Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit demanding that all 14,900 of Clinton’s emails uncovered by the FBI be released…

Five Clinton Aides Received Immunity Deals In FBI Probe – USA Politics Now

Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff, received an immunity deal from the Justice Department during the year-long FBI investigation of Clinton’s server.

Two other State Department staffers, John Bentel and Heather Samuelson, were also given immunity agreements, bringing the total number of witnesses who were protected by deals to five.

Bryan Pagliano, Clinton’s former IT aide, and Paul Combetta, an employee at the firm hired to manage her server after she left the State Department, received such protection through deals that were reported previously.

The immunity agreements given to Mills and Samuelson covered the evidence recovered from their computers, a Democratic staffer told theWashington Examiner. The deals did not extend to their testimony before Congress or to the information they told the FBI, the staffer said.

Pagliano was held in contempt of Congress Thursday for his failure to comply with a subpoena for testimony and documents. Combetta appeared before the House Oversight Committee last week, but invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and refused to answer questions.

The FBI has said Clinton and her staff exhibited “extreme carelessness” by sharing classified information on an unsecured server that was kept in Clinton’s basement.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said the immunity deals were “beyond explanation.”

“I’ve lost confidence in this investigation and I question the genuine effort in which it was carried out,” Chaffetz said in a statement. “Immunity deals should not be a requirement for cooperating with the FBI.”…

Top U.S. Psychiatrist: Hillary Should Drop Out Of Monday’s Debate, She Could Get Hurt Badly – Gateway Pundit

Top American psychiatrist and author Dr. Keith Ablow told FOX Business Network he would advise Hillary Clinton to skip the debate on Monday.

She could get hurt badly .

Dr. Ablow: How do I think she should prepare? I think she should say I’m going to hold three press conferences, I’m not doing the debates. Because it’s like the third rail. I don’t know that debating Donald Trump is something you can plan for great success with. It’s like getting in the ring with Muhammad Ali. Because you got the rodeo clown and the skilled boxer in one person. In a way if I would have been advising Hillary Clinton I would say listen, say that he’s a reality TV host that’s been beyond the pale and simply don’t debate… I think she could get hurt and hurt badly.

I think she could get hurt because Donald Trump says things that are true. He says things that are unfettered, the naked truth.

Beck posted the following to his Facebook page:

Profoundly sad day for me.

Disappointment does not begin to describe.

Maybe it is time to go to the mountains for a while. (Read below and notice the knives prodding that direction)

Again, disappointment doesn’t begin to describe my feelings.

Come what may.

Pipe Bombs Detonated By Police In New Jersey As 5 People Are Questioned By FBI In NYC Bombing Investigation – NBC News

Law enforcement officials are searching for a 28-year-old man suspected of playing a role in the series of blasts that have terrorized New York and New Jersey in the last two days.

Multiple senior law enforcement officials and an NYPD spokesperson early Monday identified Ahmad Rahami of Elizabeth, New Jersey, as the suspect. The FBI said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

A senior law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation told NBC News authorities believe Rahami is the man seen in surveillance footage taken Saturday night in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, the site of an explosion that injured 29 people.

The source said there is other physical evidence linking Rahimi to the devices that have gone off or been found in New York and New Jersey.

The announcement came hours after a backpack that appeared to contain pipe bombs exploded as a police robot examined it near a New Jersey train station. That explosion occurred shortly before 1 a.m. ET Monday. It was the second in New Jersey since Saturday morning.

Congress Investigating Obama-Funded Campaign To Unseat Netanyahu – Washington Free Beacon

Congress on Friday launched a wide-ranging probe into a secret Obama administration-funded campaign to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to information exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The probe comes on the heels of an internal government report determining that the State Department provided hundreds of thousands to an organization that plotted to unseat Netanyahu in the country’s 2015 election.

Obama administration officials were found to have deleted emails from State Department accounts containing information about its relationship with OneVoice, the non-profit group that led the effort.

OneVoice, which was awarded $465,000 in U.S. grants through 2014, has been under congressional investigation since 2015, when it was first accused of funneling some of that money to partisan political groups looking to unseat Netanyahu. This type of behavior by non-profit groups is prohibited under U.S. tax law.

A group of nine leading lawmakers led by Sen. David Perdue (R., Ga.) are now formally petitioning the State Department to come clean about the effort and provide answers about how U.S. taxpayer dollars were permitted to be spent on an organization working against the elected leader of America’s closest Middle East ally, according to a readout of the investigation obtained by the Free Beacon.

“State Department officials failed to properly vet the OneVoice grant proposal because they failed to properly conduct an analysis of risks in the pre-award phase,” the senators wrote in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry…

Former Haitian Senate President Says Bill Clinton Once Tried To Bribe Him – Daily Caller

The former Senate President of Haiti, Bernard Sansaricq, told a crowd of Donald Trump supporters Friday that Bill Clinton once tried to bribe him.

Speaking at a Trump campaign event in Little Haiti, Sansaricq explained that he became president of the Senate in 1994, a year during which the Clinton presidency attempted to oust the oppressive military regime in Haiti by threat of invasion. Sansaricq said that in order to try to “appease” him at the time, Clinton sent Bill Richardson, a former U.S. Representative of New Mexico.

Sansaricq said he spoke with Richardson for four hours during the visit in an attempt to persuade him not to invade Haiti, asking him to “take the message back to President Clinton.”

NYC Kills Public Internet Kiosks Because People Use Them For Porn – PJ Media

New York City thought it was stepping into the 21st century when it launched its public internet kiosks. They envisioned yet another “free” public service being used for good and noble purposes. After all, the internet makes so many amazing things possible, right?

Unfortunately, the folks of NYC forgot that the public – who were taxed to pay for the “free” internet – is made up of people. They used the internet for their own purposes, and those purposes weren’t what the city envisioned:

Eight months after the appearance of the first LinkNYC hubs, which are – or were – internet kiosks meant to help bring the Big Apple into the 21st Century, the city has taken a step back.

Some of these kiosks were not used to “save data on their mobile plans, call relatives across the country, and get a much-needed quick charge” as they were originally intended. Instead, they were used to watch pornography.

And this is shocking… how?

Point me to any Democratic Party, taxpayer-funded project for “community enhancement,” I’ll point you to the new local hotspot for pervs or addicts.

Brand new park by the river? Brand new site for drug addicts and dealers.

Shiny new public restrooms on Sunday? Filthy “communal prostitution center” by Saturday.

With the kiosks, the official blame from New York City was directed at homeless people, who were unable to watch porn at home for obvious reasons:

Per an announcement from the LinkNYC team, “We… know that some users have been monopolizing the Link tablets and using them inappropriately, preventing others from being able to use them while frustrating the residents and businesses around them…

Three Bombs Found In New Jersey After Explosion Sparks Terrorism Fears – Breitbart

Federal investigators found three bombs with shrapnel after investigating a Saturday morning bombing in a New Jersey beach town that they are treating as suspected terrorism.

The bomb went off in a trash can timed to go off at the same time the Seaside Semper Five Marine Corps Charity 5K was set to occur.

No one was injured in the explosion, but the race has been canceled out of an abundance of caution, and a four-block radius around the area was closed off, according to the Asbury Park Press.

Authorities found two undetonated shrapnel devices connected to the exploded bomb, but it appears it “didn’t do the damage it was supposed to,” Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The explosion occurred around 9:30 a.m. as spectators and runners were about to line up for the start of the race, according to New Jersey 101.5.

The FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives is leading the investigation into the bomb with assistance from New Jersey State Police and local and county authorities.

Gov. Chris Christie has been briefed on the incident, and the New York City Police Department’s Counterterrorism Bureau is monitoring developments.

NYC Attacker Used Same ‘Explosive Device’ As Boston Bombers – Daily Caller

An undetonated bomb found after an explosion in downtown New York City Saturday night, resembled the same explosive device used by the Boston Bombers in 2013.

Authorities say one bomb was likely placed in a dumpster before it detonated shortly before 9 p.m., injuring 29. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said the explosion was “an intentional act,” but cautioned that there was no clear link to terrorism or claim of responsibility. De Blasio described some injuries as “significant.”

After the explosion, New York City counter-terrorism authorities found a second unexploded device fashioned out of a pressure cooker. The second explosive device was found several blocks away from the initial explosion.

A photo circulated on Twitter and later confirmed by police officials, shows the second device was a pressure cooker with wires and a cell phone attached to it.

Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev also used two pressure cooker bombs placed in backpacks to kill six and maim several hundred others. The brothers constructed their bomb using a manual within popular al-Qaida magazine, Inspire.

The manual the Tsarnaev brothers used is titled “Make A Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.” The manual encourages would-be terrorists to use common household items, such as pressure cookers, to fashion maiming explosive devices packed with shrapnel.

Sinkhole Causes 980 Million Litres Of Radioactive Water To Leak Into Florida Aquifer – Daily Telegraph

A sinkhole has opened up at a fertilizer plant in the US, causing about 980 million litres of radioactive water to leak into one of Florida’s main underground sources of drinking water.

The sinkhole, which is about 14 metres in diameter, collapsed beneath a pile of waste material called a “gypsum stack”.

Sitting on top of the stack was a storage pond containing phosphogypsum, which is a radioactive by-product resulting from the production of phosphate.

Mosaic, the world’s largest supplier of phosphate, said the hole at its New Wales facility in the town of Mulberry was discovered by a worker on August 27.

It said the sinkhole is believed to reach down to the Floridan aquifer, which supplies drinking water to millions of residents in the state. Aquifers are huge underground systems of porous rocks that hold water.

The company said it was monitoring groundwater and there was no risk to the public as the leak had not reached private water supplies. It is working to recover the water using pumps and the plant is still running.

“Groundwater moves very slowly,” senior Mosaic official David Jellerson told Associated Press, adding that the pond with the sinkhole was “now dry”.

However, his reassurances failed to ease fears of contamination in the area.

“It’s hard to trust them when they say ‘Don’t worry,’ when they’ve been keeping it secret for three weeks,” Jacki Lopez, Florida director of the Center for Biological Diversity, told Reuters…

So there he was today, feet planted in front of the podium in the White House briefing room, defending a trade deal that he and Obama both argue will help the U.S. economy and create trading key trading alliances with 11 other Pacific Rim countries.

Never mind that both presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have decried the deal, and never mind the fact that Sen. Rob Portman, a former U.S. trade ambassador running for re-election in his state, has also said he won’t vote for it in his current form…

San Francisco High School Football Team Refuses To Stand For National Anthem – Breitbart

Inspired by Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest of the national anthem, every player of San Francisco’s Mission High School’s varsity football team, save one, failed to stand for the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” on Friday night.

One player with a family member serving in the armed forces stood with a clenched, raised fist during the song.

Mission High won publicity with the stunt. But San Mateo High School won the game 28-25.

“We’re a school that is focused on anti-racist teaching and social justice, and we have been that way for many years now,” Principal Eric Guthertz told the San Jose Mercury News.

He added, “This is a school that is very engaged in both the Black Lives Matter movement and other issues of social justice. It’s been something that has been a part of the fabric of Mission High School for many, many, many years – this notion of social justice and equity.”

Their coach Greg Hill, who is black, stood in respect during the pregame ritual. He said the team, when all of whom took a knee during the song in their previous game, wanted to experience “this historical moment” as a unit, reported the San Francisco Chronicle. “I decided I’d stand for them,” Hill said. “I’m gonna stand for my team.” He stood again on Friday evening.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others in the NFL and professional sports have taken to sitting or kneeling during the national anthem to protest perceived racism, oppression, and police brutality against African Americans.

Jeremi Duru, a professor of sports law at American University’s law school in Washington, D.C., claims sports figures are realizing that they have a powerful stage to express social injustices…

Health Care Costs Rise By Most In 32 Years – CNN
.

.
Prices for medicine, doctor appointments and health insurance rose the most last month since 1984. The price increases come amid a broader debate about climbing health care costs and high premiums for Obamacare coverage.

A recent report by Kaiser/HRET Employer Health Benefits forecasts that the average family health care plan will cost $18,142, up 3.4% from 2015. That’s faster than wage growth in America.

Medical care costs altogether rose 1% just in August from July, according to the Consumer Price Index, a report on price inflation from the U.S. Labor Department.

Premiums on the Obamacare exchanges are expected to rise by double-digits this year.

Some health insurers, such as Aetna, have recently announced they would pull out of the Obamacare exchanges, saying Obamacare patients have turned out to be sicker and costlier than expected…

Hillary Advisor Sidney Blumenthal Helped Start ‘Birther’ Movement – McClatchy

Two supporters of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign reportedly shared the claim that then-rival Barack Obama was not born in the United States and thus was not eligible to be president.

One was a volunteer in Iowa, who was fired, Clinton’s former campaign manager said Friday. The other was Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, according to a former McClatchy Washington Bureau chief.

The issue arose Friday as Donald Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was born in the U.S. Trump, a leading champion of the debunked “birther” conspiracy theory for years, attempted to blame Clinton for starting it when she ran against Obama in 2008 for the Democratic presidential nomination.

In fact, there were several people publicly pushing the theory, which was repeated extensively on conservative news outlets. There were the two Clinton supporters, but there is no evidence that Clinton herself or her campaign spread the story.

Patti Solis Doyle, Clinton’s campaign manager during part of the 2008 race, told CNN on Friday that an Iowa campaign worker had passed on an email about the birther conspiracy and that Clinton quickly fired him.

Solis Doyle said she’d called Obama campaign official David Plouffe at the time “to apologize and basically say that this was not coming from us. It was a rogue volunteer coordinator.”

Phil Singer, Clinton’s 2008 campaign press secretary, said by email Friday: “The idea that the Hillary Clinton campaign had anything to do with spreading the birther issue has as much credibility as the birther issue itself: none. It didn’t happen.”…

Did Hillary Clinton Expose Little Girl Supporter, Barbra Streisand To Her Pneumonia? – Gateway Pundit
.

.
The physician for Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton issued a statement through the campaign on Sunday that Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday while being examined for a persistent cough.

That opens the question of whether Clinton risked exposing the little girl who rushed up to greet her Sunday afternoon as Clinton left her daughter Chelsea’s New York City apartment after having taken refuge there following a health crisis Sunday morning in which Clinton collapsed as she attempted to walk a few steps to a Secret Service vehicle.

Pneumonia is contagious, especially when the patient has a cough as Clinton does. Clinton bent over to greet her young fan face to face and posed with the little girl for a photo likely exposing the girl to her pneumonia germs…

Story Changes Again, Now Hillary’s Doctor Claims She Has Pneumonia – Zero Hedge

Having stated that her coughing fit last week was due to her suffering from seasonal allergies, and that this morning’s fainting episode was due to ‘overheating’, the Clinton campaign now once again changed the constantly changing narrative, releasing a shocking statement by Hillary’s doctor, according to which she was diagnosed pneumonia on Friday, which in turn made her “dehydrated.”

As CBS writes, Hillary’s campaign did not immediately explain why the Democratic nominee did not reveal the pneumonia diagnosis prior to the Sunday incident, raising questions of transparency.

This is what her spox said earlier: “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen. During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.” We read it twice: no mention of pneumonia.

So when the entire Clinton campaign fell like a ton of bricks on anyone hinting the presidential candidate was unwell after her dramatic coughing fits last week, what word best describes this? And then why did it take two days since Friday for this Doctor Bardack to reveal Clinton’s medical condition?

Five more questions:

Hillary made her infamous “basket of deplorables” comments at a Barbra Streisand fundraiser on Friday night – the same night she was supposedly diagnosed with pneumonia: why go to a fundraiser if sick, especially since pneumonia is contagious…

Hillary’s Collapse Puts Her Health Front And Center – John Hinderaker

Hillary Clinton’s health has been a significant issue in the presidential race for a while, in my opinion. But after she reportedly fainted or collapsed at a September 11 observance in New York and had to be helped or carried into a van, losing a shoe in the process, no one can deny that her ability to perform the demanding job of President is legitimately in doubt.

One wonders, too, what will happen if she is unable to continue as the Democrats’ nominee. Is there a federal statute governing withdrawal of a presidential candidate? Is it up to the party to determine how to select a substitute nominee? I don’t know, but it is time to start researching the issue.

STEVE updates:

Here’s the video that has emerged (along with the Fox News story from Rick Leventhal), as taken by someone whose Twitter ID is Zdenek Gazda:

Is Gazda’s video authentic? If it is it is devastating. But it seems odd to me. Why would there be no other media cameras at the scene? How was Gazda the only person apparently present? Why are there so few police and security around the van? Maybe there are perfectly good reasons why this seems so odd (Hillary’s detail improvised a quick exit by an unplanned route?), and it would seem difficult to fake such a video so quickly…

MSNBC Cover-Up: Hillary Left 9/11 Memorial Quietly To Be Polite – Breitbart

MSNBC host Alex Witt tried to help Hillary Clinton put a brave face on her sudden departure from the 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan on Sunday morning, suggesting that while Clinton may have suffered a health scare, she left quietly to avoid being impolite.

Witt said:

Of corse, the big story today has been the fact that Secretary Clinton left rather unceremoniously, having become overheated. We should say the weather has been horrific, very hot, extremely humid temperatures. She was adorned in a long-sleeved coat, a pantsuit. And so what we will see here now is her getting into the car. She was a little bit unstable there, not feeling too well. And, again, she had indicated to staffers around her as well as notably, probably, Secret Service officials that she was not feeling well, and she needed to leave the event. Of course, she certainly did not want to bring attention to herself if not feeling well, given the solemnity of the event going on there at Ground Zero commemorations there of 9/11. So those, again, pictures that we just got into us, and showing the Secretary leaving. She was a little bit wobbly. That’s I think, an appropriate word to use. You could see right there she had become overheated.

Witt seemed prepared to use the Clinton campaign’s own explanation – that the Democratic presidential nominee had become “overheated” – without asking what else might have caused her to feel faint and to stumble.

Obama Regime: Relying On ‘Common Sense’ Violates Title IX – Daily Caller

Defining sexual harassment using “common sense and reason” is a violation of Title IX, the Department of Education declared in a letter released Friday.

The letter, released by the department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR), concerns an investigation into alleged Title IX violations at Frostburg State University in Maryland. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination at all schools receiving federal funds, and recently OCR has begun investigating schools for allegedly violating the law by creating a hostile sexual environment for women.

OCR found the school mishandled sexual misconduct complaints, and the university has agreed to reimburse women for counseling expenses and make other changes to resolve the complaint.

Obama Purged Military Of Those Who Sought Victory – American Thinker

It was not hyperbole when GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said that under President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the U.S. military had been “reduced to rubble” and left floundering without a coherent strategy or meaningful capability to win wars. It is a fait accompli, engineered by our commander-in-chief to reduce America’s global footprint, an America he has profusely apologized for, and one he blames for all the world’s ills.

Almost as soon as he took office, President Obama began a military purge not dissimilar to those routinely conducted by third-world despots, with the goal of eliminating voices that might oppose his withdrawing America from the world stage. As Investor’s Business Daily editorialized:

We recognize President Obama is the commander-in-chief and that throughout history presidents from Lincoln to Truman have seen fit to remove military commanders they view as inadequate or insubordinate. Turnover in the military ranks is normal, and in these times of sequestration and budget cuts the numbers are expected to tick up as force levels shrink and missions change.

Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling and even harmful to our national security posture. We have commented on some of the higher profile cases, such as Gen. Carter Ham. He was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command after only a year and a half because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue mission in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi…

Gender Studies Professor Rips Down 9/11 Memorial Posters – Campus Reform

Members of the Young Americans for Freedom chapter at Saddleback College had their 9/11 memorial posters ripped down and shredded by the chair of the school’s History department.

According to The New Guard, the students were participating in the Young America’s Foundation “9/11: Never Forget” project, which involves planting 2,977 American flags to remember the lives lost 15 years ago on 9/11, when they were accosted by the professor, who proceeded to rip down their posters and direct them to confine their activities to one of the “free speech areas” on campus.

Prior to that altercation, The New Guard reported Wednesday that the school administration had cancelled the planned memorial service, prompting the YAF members to defy the prohibition by waking up before dawn to plant the flags and hang posters.

The students told Campus Reform that the perpetrator was Margot Lovett, a gender studies and humanities professor who has a history of controversial actions on campus. Notably, OC Weekly reported in 2001 that she had promulgated a statement by the Black Radical Congress to her colleagues blaming “U.S. Imperialism” for the 9/11 attacks.

After ripping down the posters, video footage of the incident reveals that the professor came over to tell the students that they were not allowed to put up posters on that part of campus, because it was not a free speech zone.

“I was absolutely amazed that a professor believed that they had the authority to tear down posters put up by students in remembrance of the terrorist attacks,” Audra Leslie, the president of the Saddleback’s YAF chapter, told Campus Reform…

Black, Female Sailor Faces Discipline After Viral Flag Protest Video – Military

A sailor who filmed herself refusing to stand for morning colors is now facing administrative action, Military.com has learned.

Lt. Cmdr. Kate Meadows, a spokeswoman for Naval Education and Training Command, said actions were ongoing regarding the sailor, but declined to specify what they were.

The sailor, who has not been publicly identified, is assigned to Naval Air Technical Training Center in Pensacola, Florida, Meadows confirmed, and is expected to be allowed to continue training.

The command became aware of the filmed protest Aug. 31, Meadows said.

At issue is an eight-and-a-half minute video posted to Facebook in which the sailor sat through morning colors in protest of the now-defunct third stanza of the National Anthem, which she described as racist.

The video has been widely shared and was viewed more than 13,000 times after being re-posted to a military humor page, US Army Military Police WTF Moments.

The sailor referred to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who made headlines in August when he opted to take a knee for the anthem, saying he was not going to “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

Over 70% Of U.S. Doctors Surveyed Say Hillary’s Health Concerns Are “Serious, Possibly Disqualifying” – Zero Hedge

On a day when Hillary Clinton proclaimed the media biased (against her), labeling the GOP as “sad, misogynistic sexists,” a survey of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) found that nearly 71% of physicians thought concerns about Hillary Clinton’s health are “serious – could be disqualifying for the position of President.”

With her lead over Trump tumbling to six-week lows following a poor performance at last night’s “commander-in-chief” forum, and a press conference focused on what she was not asked (or didn’t answer)…

The former secretary of State also laid into Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for his tweet that she looked “angry” during an MSNBC presidential forum.

Clinton didn’t rule out sexism when asked if she was being treated differently in the political race because she is a woman.

“I’m going to let all of you ponder that last question,” the first female presidential nominee replied with a grin at a press conference.

$14 Billion In Cargo Stranded At Sea, Crews “Go Crazy” On Hanjin Ghost Ships – Zero Hedge

The fallout from last week’s historic bankruptcy of one of the world’s biggest shipping lines, Hanjin Shipping, continued with little resolution with as much as $14 billion worth of cargo stranded at sea according to the WSJ, sending cargo owners scurrying to try to recover their goods and get them to customers. Since Hanjin’s bankruptcy protection filing, dozens of ships carrying more than half a million cargo containers have been denied access to ports around the world because of uncertainty about who would pay docking fees, container-storage and unloading bills. Some of those ships have been seized by the company’s creditors.

As Bloomberg adds, 85 Hanjin ships that have been effectively marooned offshore as ports in the U.S., Asia and Europe have turned the company’s ships away. The worry is that Hanjin ships won’t be able to pay port fees or their contents might be seized by creditors, which would disrupt port operations. The global shipping disruption comes just as companies are shipping merchandise to fill shelves and warehouses for the end-of-year holiday season.

Earlier this week, South Korean authorities rushed to piece together a capital injection. Hanjin Group will provide 100 billion won ($90 million), including 40 billion won from Chairman Cho Yang Ho, to help contain disruptions in the supply chain. At the same time, South Korea’s ruling Saenuri Party asked the government to offer about 100 billion won in low-interest loans to the shipping line if Hanjin Group provides collateral, in what is effectively a government funded DIP loan.

Some have calculated that the funding package won’t be enough: South Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries estimates Hanjin Shipping needs more than 600 billion won to cover unpaid costs like fuel, including about 100 billion won immediately for payments such as to port operators to unload cargo from stranded ships…

Does President Obama have the guts to call Americans “lazy” to our faces? Or is he more brave to tear us down a half a world away?

The president twice called Americans “lazy” today as he addressed a group of young leaders in Laos.

“So usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development. It’s usually because we’re being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, sustainable way,” Obama said during a town hall meeting.

He also said, “And I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world.

“If you are in Laos, you need to know about Thailand and China and Cambodia, because you’re a small country and they’re right next door and you need to know who they are,” Obama said.

“If you’re in the United States, sometimes you can feel lazy and think we’re so big, we don’t have to really know anything about other people,” he said.

DHS Election Takeover? Agency Itself Was Hacked – WorldNetDaily

As the Department of Homeland Security contemplates taking possibly unconstitutional power over the U.S. election system due to the threat of hackers, citizens should consider the fact that the agency itself was the victim of a major cyber intrusion that stole sensitive personal information of thousands of its employees, contends a former DHS officer.

That, combined with a politically correct approach to the Islamic-jihad threat that allows dangerous people to enter the country should be enough reason to reject the plan suggested by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, contends Philip Haney, the co-author with WND News Editor Art Moore of the expose “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.”

Johnson said last week that DHS is considering whether or not it should declare the U.S. election system a “critical infrastructure” due to potential cyber threats.

Has our own government already surrendered to Islamic jihad? A national security insider uncovers the terrible truth. Philip Haney’s “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad” is available now from the WND Superstore.

The fear, Haney points out, is that the DHS could overrule powers given to local and state governments to mange their own elections under Article 1, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, not to mention the powers afforded states in the 10th Amendment.

“They certainly don’t have an exemplary record in safeguarding our borders,” Haney told WND. “What gives us confidence they will safeguard our electoral process?”

He noted that DHS “didn’t have the capability of preventing the background paperwork for our secret clearances from being hacked.”…

GOP Senator Jeff Flake Says He Can’t Support Trump, But Praised Socialist Dictator Robert Mugabe – Gateway Pundit

It should be clear at this point that there are several Repubicans openly campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Senator Jeff Flake has been an utter disappointment since he joined the senate. The freshman senator from Arizona joined the pro-amnesty Gang of 8 senators as soon as he was elected.

In July he missed the Republican Convention because, as he told reporters, he had to mow his yard. It’s clear that Flake has no regard for the Republican voters.

Sunday, Senator Flake trashed the Republican nominee on “Face the Nation” for several minutes and said he will not support Donald Trump for president. But this same “principled” senator praised Socialist dictator Robert Mugabe.

Got News reported:

A GOP senator who backs increased trade with the Cuban dictatorship once praised the policies of socialist dictator Robert Mugabe.

Jeff Flake of Arizona favors ending the embargo with Cuba but his 1987 BYU master’s thesis raises profound questions about his judgment backing the socialist dictator.

Might he be wrong about what will happen with Cuba?

The entire premise of Flake’s thesis, “Zimbabwe: Rhetoric vs. Reality,” (below) is that Mugabe really isn’t a Socialist and is “on the side of the West.”

“After a visit to the country with exposure to the amount of private enterprise and limited government interference in the economy, as well as recognizing the viable existence of a second party, one would clearly see that Zimbabwe is more on the side of the West,” Flake wrote…

During a radio interview with John McIntyre on August 16, Dr. Pinsky commented on the release of the Democratic presidential candidate’s medical records, saying that based upon the information he had reviewed with another doctor, he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.”

“Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care she was receiving, we would be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge,” Dr. Pinsky concluded. “We would be laughed out. She’s receiving sort of 1950s level care by our evaluation.”

Eight days later, CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz announced that the last episode of Dr. Drew would air September 22.

“Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” Jautz said in a statement announcing the show’s cancellation. “Their audience-driven shows, in particular, were innovative and memorable TV. And Dr. Drew has been an authoritative voice on addiction and on many other topical issues facing America today.”…

Hillary Clinton Charges Kids $2,700 To Ask Her A Question – Downtrend
.

.
Hillary Clinton hasn’t held a press conference in forever. She does not take questions from the press. When she does an interview it is with a liberal-friendly outlet with pre-approved softball questions. Don’t go thinking she is completely inaccessible though. It turns out there is a way to ask her something. The requirements are that you are child and have rich parents. If you can believe this, Hillary charged the parents of rich donors $2,700 so that their kids could ask her a single question.

This is an astounding revelation, but equally as amazing is that the information comes from The New York Times. In a rare piece that is critical of Clinton, the NYT actually lays in to the democratic nominee for being a wealthy elitist who has completely abandoned the working class people she pretends to champion.

Check some of this stuff out, remembering it came from Hillary’s print-medium propaganda arm…

Migrant Gangs In France Targeting Tourists’ Cars In Terrifying New Ambush Technique – Daily Mail

Migrants from the Calais Jungle camp are using a deadly new tactic in their attempts to get to Britain.

Ruthless gangs are deliberately causing crashes on the roads to the French port by hurling large objects at cars – then sneaking on to lorries caught up in the resulting tailbacks.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has spoken out after a team of Mail on Sunday journalists narrowly escaped death last week when three migrants threw a log at their car, forcing it into the path of a 38-ton juggernaut.

After being briefed about the incident, Ms Rudd issued a statement describing the development as ‘extremely concerning’.

She added: ‘It’s vital that people feel safe when using the Channel ports. This shows just how it is in all our interests to combat attempts to enter the UK illegally.’

Reporter Ben Ellery, 32, and photographers Steve Burton and John McLellan were all injured when their British-registered Audi swerved to avoid the missile.

They then hit the lorry, sending their vehicle spinning out of control. The juggernaut dragged the car sideways for about 50 yards.

The three men were later rushed to hospital for treatment. Ellery’s head was gashed to the bone after it struck the steering wheel, and he required eight stitches.

McLellan, 60, was left with deep cuts to his face, and Burton, 57, suffered a gash on his head and severe bruising to his back…

Meet The Mastermind Behind Clinton’s Massive Email Cover-Up – New York Post

Venezuelan President Maduro Chased By Angry Mob With Pots And Pans – American Thinker

How’s that socialism working out for ya’, Venezuela? Apparently so poorly that even the New York Times notices.

President Nicolás Maduro was chased at a routine political event by a crowd of angry protesters banging on pots and yelling that they were hungry, just days after thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets to call for his ouster, local news media reported on Saturday.

Scenes from the confrontation late Friday, which also appeared in videos uploaded to social media, captured the attention of Venezuelans, many of whom blame the unpopular president for the country’s food shortages.

In one video, Mr. Maduro tries to calm the pot-bangers by walking among them, only to be surrounded as the furious crowd yells obscenities.

“What is this?” an astounded voice behind the camera asks in one of the video clips.

Mr. Maduro had traveled from the capital, Caracas, to Margarita Island off Venezuela’s northern coast to inaugurate a number of new public housing units and give a televised address.

During the speech, he denounced his opponents’ calls for his removal from office, calling them “vampires” and saying they were preparing for violence.

At this point, Venezuela faces a massive preventable tragedy. The spectacular failure of socialism there, despite the world’s largest oil reserves, is all the proof anyone should need (note that the word socialism appears nowhere in the Times article)…

Record Gun Sales In August – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Newly released FBI figures show that last month saw the most gun-related FBI background checks of any August on record.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, conducted 1,853,815 checks in August. That’s over 100,000 more checks than the previous record set last August. It is also the 16th month in a row to set a record.

The number of NICS checks considered one of the most reliable gauges for how many guns were sold. Nearly every sale made through a licensed gun dealer, whether it’s made inside a store, online, or at a gun show, is required to complete a NICS check.

However, the measure is not a one-to-one recording of gun sales for a number of reasons. Most states do not require NICS checks on sales between non-dealers…

Bombshell: Hillary Admitted Shocking Consequence Of Her Brain Injury To FBI – Mad World News

The Hillary Clinton campaign is in major damage control after this Friday’s email dump from the FBI, showing Hillary’s testimony on July 2nd in which she admits to brain damage. It also shows that due to that brain injury, she was unable to carry out vital duties as Secretary of State. You’ll be shocked by the one thing she says happened due to her “concussion.”

Hillary just painted herself into a corner that she can’t escape, and it all revolves around her testimony in front of the FBI last July 2nd. At the time, Hillary was on the hot seat over her email server, and this testimony was never supposed to be for public consumption.

Clinton told investigators during an interview on July 2 that she “received no instructions or direction regarding the preservation of production of records” after stepping down as Secretary of State in early 2013. [via Breitbart News]

However, the FBI and Department of Justice know that she received instructions on preserving her records, and this is where it gets really bad for Hillary. Not only did she get those instructions but she had to sign documents saying she got instructions on how to handle classified information.

Catherine Herridge, a really good investigative reporter at Fox News, held up two documents and said:

“[Clinton] not recalling any specific briefing on how to handle information associated with special access programs is a very big problem, and I’ll tell you why. Because in 2009 within days of becoming Secretary of State she signed two of these. These are non-disclosure agreements.” [via Gateway Pundit]

According to the reports from the FBI, Hillary answered virtually all questions by saying, “I can’t recall.”…

Jeryl Bier Reports

Either Hillary Clinton lied to the FBI or she lied on a State Department form as she began her tenure as Secretary of State. This conclusion appears inescapable after Friday’s FBI document release related to the Clinton email investigation.

As revealed by those FBI documents, Clinton told agents that she could not recall “any briefing or training by State related to the retention of federal records of handling of classified information”.

But the second paragraph of the Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement – which she signed on January 22, 2009 – states that “I hereby acknowledge that I have received a security indoctrination concerning the nature and protection of classified information.”…

FBI Data Dump Shows Clinton Is Criminal And Clueless – John Schindler

Today, on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released documents on its investigation of Hillary Clinton and her mishandling of email while she was secretary of state. The Friday afternoon data dump is a venerable Washington cliché, a shady way to bury a story that the bureaucracy doesn’t want covered in depth, but even by Beltway standards this was a shocker.

Nobody expected much from the FBI here, given the Bureau’s recent punting on its formal inquiry into Hillary’s dubious activities with her “unclassified” email of bathroom server infamy. I’ve been covering the EmailGate story for over a year, from the beginning, and I too didn’t expect the FBI to reveal much about what Hillary did that was unwise and perhaps criminal.

To be fair, a good amount of today’s release has been redacted. The original documents were classified at the Secret/Not Releasable to Foreign Nationals level, and to make it Unclassified about a third of the text has been cut out.

But what’s there is awful enough for Team Clinton. Although the FBI’s press release is terse, the documents themselves indelibly portray the Democratic presidential nominee as dishonest, entitled, and thoroughly incompetent.

Considering that Hillary has been accused of mishandling classified information on an almost industrial scale, what shines through is that Clinton is utterly clueless about classification matters, betraying an ignorance that is shocking when encountered in a former top official of our government – and one who wants to be our next commander-in-chief…

Vermont DMV Pays $40,000 To Illegal Alien Abdel Rababa After Reporting Him To The Feds – American Mirror

The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles is shelling out $40,000 to an illegal alien because staff tipped off federal authorities about his status.

DMV staff helped to coordinate a meeting with Abdel Rababa, of Jordan, that resulted in his arrest by federal immigration officials in 2014, Vermont Public Radio reports.

“DMV staff tipped off federal authorities that they had doubts about Rababa’s residency status after a paperwork mistake by the department made it appear that Rababa had claimed to be a legal resident,” according to the news site.

The case centered on a Vermont law enacted in 2014 that allows illegal immigrants to obtain “driver’s privilege cards” that allow them on the roads legally.

“If you then take actions such as DMV took in this case based on an individual’s national origin, you are essentially eviscerating the intent of the law that the legislature created,” Karen Richards, head of the Vermont Human Rights Commission, told VPR.

“One of the problems in this case was that they rolled out this new law and they didn’t actually provide any training or policy changes for their staff, and so staff was left without the tools necessary to actually implement it correctly.”

The DMV must now pay Rababa $40,000 as part of a settlement, and the department must also start training employees on “fair and impartial policing and on other immigration and constitutional issues that should help avoid having this unnecessary contact with federal law enforcement,” Richards said…

College Students Know Nothing About The Guns They Want banned – YAF

Curious as to how fellow millennials would react when questioned about the proposed “assault weapons ban,” I took to the campus of The George Washington University to ask their opinions.

An overwhelming majority of the students I spoke with favored the ban on assault weapons, but couldn’t offer even the most basic definition of the term itself.

While a couple students confidently claimed, “A lot of people don’t know how to control their use of guns,” and “Anything above what a shotgun would be […] is just not necessary,” they simply couldn’t follow up by defining the very weapons they wanted to ban.

In fact, their answers were stunningly bizarre.

Many of their attempts to answer the question hit all the tired and overused liberal talking points about “military-style, high-capacity” firearms. When pressed to follow her strange definition to its logical conclusion, one young woman admitted that she believed a rock “is an assault weapon, I guess.” A helpful vegetarian offered hunting advice, warning against using assault weapons to hunt deer noting “you’re pretty much just making ground beef at that point.”

Some students were more honest, like the one who sheepishly admitted, “I don’t know anything about gun names.”

Others did their best to keep up their expert appearance. When asked to expound on what he meant by military-style assault weapons one young man wagered it might have something to do with the color of the weapon, saying it would be “made out of a different material, like something black,” with “more expressed features, like the trigger might be larger… it could have, like, those rings around the barrel.”…

Patent Office Workers Defraud Inventors Of Millions Of Dollars – IBD

Innovation: Reviewing and issuing patents is one of the few responsibilities of the federal government that is actually important – which makes the revelations contained in a new report from an inspector general all the more disturbing.

The Commerce Department’s IG found that hundreds of patent examiners billed for close to 300,000 hours that they didn’t work, over a span of 15 months. That cost $18.3 million, the IG says, with the bill paid by inventors themselves who fund the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office through application fees. Plus, had these employees actually worked those hours, they could have cut the USPTO’s chronic backlog of patent reviews by 16,000.

The investigators conducted a “minute-by-minute” review of almost every patent examiner’s claimed work hours, and compared that to data on when they badged in and out, when they logged into computers, if working from home, and other evidence that they were actually doing their jobs…

Judge Slams DNC ‘Shenanigans’ In Election Fraud Class Action Lawsuit – Investment Watch

The judge presiding over the election fraud lawsuit served to the DNC by Shawn Lucas is moving the class action lawsuit forward.

The judge presiding over the election fraud lawsuit served to the Democratic National Committee by Shawn Lucas has advised the plaintiffs to serve the papers to the DNC again in order to move the class action lawsuit forward.

Judge William Zloch chastised the DNC for their “shenanigans” in trying to derail the case.

“The court hereby advises Defendant DNC that will not tolerate the conduct in which Defendant DNC engaged in this instance,” Judge Zloch wrote in his order.

Lawnewz reports:

The recent developments haven’t gotten much mainstream media attention, but they are all documented in federal court. So, we decided to dig into them. And yes, they involve a lawsuit process server – who served the DNC with the class action paperwork-and then suddenly died.

The lawsuit, which was actually filed before the Wikileaks document dump, claims that the DNC “actively concealed its bias” from its donors and supporters backing Bernie Sanders. Hundreds of Sanders supporters have reportedly signed up to be part of the class. They have even started a very active Facebook page. The plaintiffs say the recent Wikileaks emails only give them more evidence that the Democratic National Committee was on board with Hillary Clinton from the very start.

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

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. I would just like to say thank you to the writers, producers, actors, our amazing crew, and, most importantly, the best fans that a show could ever hope to have.”

In a post to his WordPress blog, the vandal – who previously provided nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee e-mails to Wikileaks – uploaded an Excel file that includes the cell phone numbers and private e-mail addresses of nearly every Democratic member of the House of Representatives.

The Excel file also includes similar contact information for hundreds of congressional staff members (chiefs of staff, press secretaries, legislative directors, schedulers) and campaign personnel.

In announcing the leak of the document, “Guccifer 2.0” reported that the spreadsheet was stolen during a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach,” the hacker wrote…

96% Of Clintons’ 2015 Charitable Donations Went To Their Own Foundation – Mediaite
.

.
96 percent of the roughly one million dollars given to charity by Bill and Hillary Clinton in 2015 was given to the Clinton Family Foundation, a tax-exempt charity controlled by the Clintons.

According to the tax return released by the Clinton campaign Friday, Desert Classic Charities received $42,000 from the Clintons while the Clinton Family Foundation received a cool million. But as the Daily Caller points out, The Desert Classic Charities in turn contributed $700,000 to the second Clinton charity, the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

The Clintons’ charitable work has been the source of controversy ever since the publication of the 2015 book Clinton Cash, which alleged that many of the other Clinton Foundation’s big donations from foreign and domestic actors coincided with beneficial decisions by Hillary Clinton’s State Department…

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.

But international judo experts called the match a sign of progress.

“This is already a big improvement that Arabic countries accept to [fight] Israel,” International Judo Federation spokesman Nicolas Messner told CBS…

Suicide Bomber Kills At Least 70 At Pakistan Hospital – Reuters

A suicide bomber in Pakistan killed at least 70 people and wounded more than a hundred on Monday in an attack on mourners gathered at a hospital in Quetta, according to officials in the southwestern province of Baluchistan.

The bomber struck as a crowd of mostly lawyers and journalists crammed into the emergency department to accompany the body of a prominent lawyer who had been shot and killed in the city earlier in the day, Faridullah, a reporter who was among the wounded, told Reuters.

Abdul Rehman Miankhel, a senior official at the government-run Civil Hospital, where the explosion occurred, told reporters that at least 70 people had been killed, with more than 112 wounded, as the casualty toll spiked from initial estimates.

“There are many wounded, so the death toll could rise,” said Rehmat Saleh Baloch, the provincial health minister.

Jamaat-ur-Ahrar, a faction of the Islamist militant Pakistani Taliban group, claimed responsibility for the attack in an email.

It was not immediately clear if the group had carried out the bombing, as it is believed to have claimed responsibility for attacks in the past that it was not involved in.

“The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaat-ur-Ahrar (TTP-JA) takes responsibility for this attack, and pledges to continue carrying out such attacks,” said spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan in the statement.

Only last week, Jamaat was added to the United States’ list of global terrorists, triggering sanctions…

Crazed Anti-Trumper Caught Vandalizing Sign, Tries To Run Down Elderly Homeowner With Car – 100PercentFedUp

A woman was arrested after she allegedly vandalized a resident’s Donald Trump campaign sign and nearly ran over the homeowner as she tried to speed away.

Andover Police said Susan Bryant of North Reading spray painted the Trump sign on Jenkins Road early Saturday morning.

One side of the sign was painted with “Putin’s (expletive),” a reference to Trump’s purported relationship with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. On the other side, Bryant allegedly painted “Gold Star Fail!”

When homeowner Art Gonsalves confronted Bryant, she allegedly drove off erratically, forcing the victim to run out of the way of her car.

Police tracked down Bryant and charged her with four counts of defacing property and one count of assault by means of a dangerous weapon.

Bryant is suspected of vandalizing signs at the property several other times in previous months.

Gonsalves did not suffer any injuries, but said he was “absolutely terrified.” He said he’s caught her defacing his signs on several different occasions and recently installed a security camera.

All Gonsalves, a veteran, wants to do is express his First Amendment rights…

NFL Hall Of Fame Game Between Packers And Colts Cancelled Due To Pussification – USA Today

The NFL season didn’t kick off Sunday night after all.

Poor field conditions at Tom Benson Stadium prompted the cancellation of the NFL’s annual Hall of Fame Game. Thus the Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers will only play four preseason games, like every other team.

“Due to safety concerns with the condition of the playing surface in Canton, tonight’s game between the Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers has been cancelled,” read a joint statement from the NFL and players union. “We are very disappointed for our fans, but player safety is our primary concern, and as a result, we could not play an NFL game on this field tonight.”

Apparently, portions of the Hall of Fame logo in the middle of the field melted, causing concern that players’ cleats would stick.

“This is a very, very difficult decision for us today,” Hall of Fame president David Baker said on ESPN. “But we think it’s the only decision that can be made.”

After a long deliberation that included Colts general manager Ryan Grigson and Packers general manager Ted Thompson, everyone was asked to leave the field around 6:30 p.m. ET, roughly 90 minutes before kickoff. Fans were allowed to enter the stadium after a delay, but were not told about the cancellation of the game until Baker addressed them at 8 p.m, nearly 75 minutes after the players were told.

“As a result of some painting on the field today, some questions arose about player safety,” Baker told the fans. “We talked to both sets of players. I can tell you – I had a son who played in this league – if it had happened with him on the field, I would’ve wanted somebody to make the same decision.”…

Media Rigging Polls, Hiding New Evidence Proving Trump Is Winning – Truth Division

There’s no doubt about it – the liberal media’s polls are rigged from the bottom up.

How do we know this? Simple – social media. Trump’s following on the major social media networks absolutely blows Clinton out of the water.

Allow me to prove it:

Facebook

Trump: 10,174,358 Likes
Clinton: 5,385,959 Likes

Trump nearly doubles the amount of Clinton Likes. Now, some people follow Trump who don’t like him, so let’s look at some posts. Here’s the stats for his latest Facebook live stream:

Trump Live Stream Post – 21 hours ago: 135,000 likes, 18,167 shares, 1.5 million views
Clinton Live Stream Post – 25 hours ago: 11,000 likes, 0 shares, 321,000 views

Since Clinton has zero shares, here’s the next best original post I could find from Clinton, albeit it’s not a live stream post:

Clinton post – 30 hours ago: 22,000 Likes, 7241 Shares, 773,000 views

Fact-Checker: Trump Is Right, He Didn’t Kick Baby Out Of Campaign Rally – Washington Post

Donald Trump is complaining that the media has spun a fable that he kicked a baby out of his rally in Ashburn, Va.

The New York Post, for instance, headlined its article: “Trump loves crying baby, then kicks the tot out of his rally.”

The New York Daily News, in its article on the incident, began: “What a baby. Donald Trump booted a fussy baby from a rally Tuesday because the tot was wailing over the businessman’s speech.”

The Guardian newspaper even used the incident to declare that this is a core problem with Trump – that he has “a total lack of empathy.”

Within days, the Clinton campaign highlighted the baby affair in a video trashing Trump’s week,

In reality, this is a situation when the video can lie – and Trump’s odd sense of humor can backfire. Let’s roll the tape.
The Facts

There are two parts to the video. During his speech a baby starts to cry, and Trump says: “Don’t worry about that baby, I love babies… I hear that baby crying. I like it. What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around like – don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy, and that’s what we want.”

But then about a minute later he says: “Actually, I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here… I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”…

Hillary Tells Police Union To Pound Sand – The Hill

Top officials at the biggest police union in the country are upset with Hillary Clinton, saying she snubbed them.

The leader of the National Fraternal Order of Police told The Hill that the Democrat sent a signal through her staff that she wouldn’t be seeking the union’s endorsement.

“It sends a powerful message. To be honest with you, I was disappointed and shocked,” said Chuck Canterbury, the president of the National Fraternal Order of Police.

“You would think with law enforcement issues so much in the news that even if she had disagreements with our positions, that she would’ve been willing to say that.”

Clinton’s GOP presidential opponent, Donald Trump, is now actively seeking the union’s support as he trumpets a “law and order” message on the campaign trail.

Canterbury spoke to The Hill in a telephone interview Friday shortly after he left Trump Tower in Manhattan.

He and other leaders of the police union – which says it represents 335,000 members – visited with Trump on Friday morning to sound out the Republican nominee about his positions on issues of importance to law enforcement officers. Politico first reported the meeting.

The union will not be meeting with Clinton because her campaign decided not to fill out a questionnaire that is required for seeking the police union’s endorsement…

Obama’s Cash Payment To Iran Was More Than A Ransom, It Broke Criminal Law – Andrew C. McCarthy

Did it ever occur to President Obama to ask why he couldn’t just cut a check to the Iranian regime?

Outrage broke out this week over the revelation that Obama arranged to ship the mullahs piles of cash, worth $400 million and converted into foreign denominations, reportedly in an unmarked cargo plane. The hotly debated question was whether the payment, which the administration attributes to a 37-year-old arms deal, was actually a ransom paid for the release of American hostages Tehran had abducted.

It is a waste of time to debate that point further. The Iranians have bragged that the astonishing cash payment was a ransom – and Obama has been telling us for months that we can trust the Iranians. The hostages were released the same day the cash arrived. One of the hostages has reported that the captives were detained an extra several hours at the airport and told they would not be allowed to leave until the arrival of another plane – inferentially, the unmarked cargo plane ferrying the cash. The reason American policy has always prohibited paying ransoms to terrorists and other abductors is that it only encourages them to take more hostages. And, as night follows day, Iran has abducted more Americans since Obama paid the cash. No matter how energetically the president tries to lawyer the ransom issue, if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…

More worth examining is why the transaction took the bizarre form that it did. To cut to the chase, I believe it was to camouflage – unsuccessfully – the commission of felony law violations.

The Wall Street Journal has reported that the Justice Department strongly objected to the cash payment to Iran…

At Least 9,000 Companies Have Left Democrat-Run California Since 2008 – Breitbart

At least 9,000 companies have left California from 2008 to 2015, according to the 378 page study by Spectrum Location Solutions titled, California’s Forty Year Legacy of Hostility to Business.

Joseph Vranich, president of site selection consultants Spectrum Location Solutions (VLS) in Irvine, found that roughly 9,000 California companies moved their headquarters or diverted projects to out-of-state locations in the last seven years due to the Golden State’s “hostile” business environment.

Vranich reports that the bitter negative perceptions of California for business began during Jerry Brown’s first chaotic two terms as California Governor from 1975 to 1983. Things got so bad that the Governor instructed his aides in 1977 to begin wearing “California Means Business” buttons.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Brown tried to convince reporters on a late 1970s junket to Japan that “Our economic climate is very good.” He added, “I think this is dissipating a good deal of the political rhetoric surrounding the business-climate talk.”

VLS points out that despite the growing anti-business environment, California’s economy grew for the next three decades due to wonderful scenery and climate, a workforce with technical expertise, and trade access to Asian nations.

But since the start of the Great Recession and accelerating after Brown’s election as governor in 2009, a mass exodus of businesses from the not-so-Golden State to more “friendly” locations like Texas and Nevada occurred…

Machete-Wielding Terrorist Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ Attacks Two Female Cops In Belgium – Daily Mirror

A crazed man hacked at a policewoman’s face with a machete and shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before turning on another officer just seconds before a third cop shot him dead in a suspected terror attack.

The machete-wielding terror suspect launched his terrifying attack in Charleroi this afternoon after walking up to the Belgian city’s main police station just before 4pm.

He wandered up the policewomen at a checkpoint at the entrance of to station and immediately pulled out the huge blade.

Screaming “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest), the twisted attacker then flung the machete into the face of one of the female officers with huge force.

A second officer was close by and the savage immediately lunged towards her before a third officer who was at the checkpoint with her colleagues pulled out her gun and blasted him in the chest and leg and later died.

Terrified witnesses reported hearing a series of shots as the attack, which Belgian authorities later described as appearing to be an act of terror.

Bernie Supporters Chant ‘Lock Her Up’ In Philadelphia Protest Against Hillary – Wall Street Journal

It’s not just Republicans that want presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in prison.

At a lively Sunday march in support of former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, chants of “lock her up,” “Hillary for Prison” signs and t-shirts and calls for indictment were common among the most ardent supporters of Mr. Sanders, who arrived in Philadelphia to make their voices heard to the delegates attending the Democratic National Convention.

Republicans used last week’s Republican National Convention to make the case that Mrs. Clinton’s perceived ethical lapses made her unfit for office. Delegates to the Republican convention could be heard chanting “Lock her up!” while “Hillary for Prison” shirts and bumper stickers have proliferated across the country.

Mrs. Clinton hasn’t been accused of any criminal wrongdoing – in fact, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey explicitly said that her use of a private email server for government work did not rise to the level that would justify criminal charges. However, Mr. Comey called her “extremely careless” in her handling of the nation’s secrets by running her work email off a private server, while a State Department probe concluded that she was in violation of Department rules.

But at the pro-Sanders rally, attendees were more than eager to list the reasons that Mrs. Clinton deserved to be incarcerated. At least once during a four-mile march from City Hall to Roosevelt Park, rallygoers began loudly chanting “Lock her up!” – the same chant heard on the floor of the RNC.

Javier Ruiz, 20, listed the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks, her use of personal email email and her refusal to unconditionally condemn hydraulic fracturing as reasons she should be imprisoned.

Standing in Roosevelt Park, another protester named Tim Keane saw a young woman dressed in an costume with wings. “Are you the indictment fairy?” he asked her with a smile, then invited her to sign a “Bernie card.”…

Debbie WhatsHerName Schultz To Resign As DNC Chair Following Convention – New York Daily News

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Sunday she would resign from her post amid a nagging email leak that fueled allegations of favoritism and bias.

In a statement released on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Wasserman Schultz said she would “step down as party chair at the end of this convention.”

“As party chair, this week, I will open and close the convention and I will address our delegates about the stakes involved in this election not only for Democrats, but for all Americans,” the Florida representative said.

Wasserman Schultz’s resignation announcement came just a day after news emerged that she had been stripped of her speaking and presiding privileges at the Philadelphia convention following the publication through WikiLeaks of more than 19,000 emails that depicted the Democratic Party as trying to sabotage Bernie Sanders’ White House run.

She had also been the target of intense criticism throughout the Democratic primary process over her decision to limit the number of debates and because of her support of the superdelegate system, both of which Sanders backers felt conveyed outright support for Hillary Clinton.

Leaked DNC Documents Show Plans To Reward Big Donors With Federal Appointments – Daily Caller

Democratic National Committee documents recently released by WikiLeaks include spreadsheets and emails that appear to show party officials planning which donors and prominent fundraisers to provide with appointments to federal boards and commissions.

The documents, which were circulated among top DNC officials in April, could raise legal questions for the party, says Ken Boehm, the chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

“The disclosed DNC emails sure look like the potential Clinton Administration has intertwined the appointments to federal government boards and commissions with the political and fund raising operations of the Democratic Party,” Boehm told The Daily Caller.

“That is unethical, if not illegal.”

The records, which WikiLeaks released along with nearly 20,000 hacked DNC emails and other documents on Friday, also expose one of the Beltway’s worst kept secrets: that wealthy politicos can often buy their way to presidential appointments.

President Obama has been criticized for appointing dozens of top fundraisers – called “bundlers” in the political fundraising realm – to ambassadorships and other cushy federal positions.

The spreadsheet – which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team – contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees…

Syrian Refugee Hacks Pregnant Woman To Death With Machete, Injures Two Others In Reutlingen, Germany – Daily Mail

A Syrian refugee wielding a machete has killed a pregnant woman and injured a man and another woman in Germany before being arrested by police after he was run over by a man driving a BMW.

The attack happened in the south western city of Reutlingen near a doner kebab stand in a bus station at Listplatz Square in what has been described as a ‘crime of passion’.

German media have been reporting that the motive for the attack in the city south of Stuttgart was unclear but the attacker and the 45-year-old Polish victim both worked at the same snack bar.

Pictures from the scene appear to show the knifeman lying on the ground with blood on his face after being apprehended.

Armed police officers can be seen pinning him down to the ground before binding his hands behind his back.

Meanwhile, footage filmed by passers-by also showed the bearded attacker in the moments following the rampage running around in the street while people scream ‘oh my god’.

This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted, or even cut off entirely.

This finding has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an object alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure. This is accomplished through an injection into the patients’ veins. Once injected, the microparticles can oxygenate the blood to near normal levels.

This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen is needed but unavailable. For medical personnel, this is just enough time to avoid risking a heart attack or permanent brain injury when oxygen is restricted or cut off to patients…

Moronic Leftist Posts ‘Support Your Local Cop Killer’ Sign, Then Calls 911 For Help – American Mirror

A Richwood, Ohio man who put up signs advocating for the death of police called on his local law enforcement after someone ran over the signs, then flipped out when he was told officers had more important priorities.

The unnamed, retired 66-year-old man erected the signs on his Boundary Road property in Union County and locals posted pictures of the messages to Facebook, WSYX reports.

“A good cop is a dead cop,” read one sign, red paint scrawled on wood.

Another said “Make America great again – support your local cop killer.”

“Dump Trump,” a third sign read.

Jody Soviak posted a picture of the signs to Facebook with a prophetic message:

Union county friends these are our neighbors on Boundary Rd. Real nice. Sad thing is that the police would still respond to them if needed.

Someone was apparently offended by the man’s signs and plowed them over Wednesday night, trashing the signs and leaving tire gouges through the lawn in front of his farm. So, of course, Mr. Cop Hater called his local cops.

“Yes, hello… Why somebody vandalized my property, my signs last night,” the man told Union County 911 dispatchers Thursday. “I want the people responsible for this.”

The dispatcher explained that Union County Sheriff’s deputies were occupied with more pressing issues, but help is on the way.

That wasn’t good enough…

Entire Russian Team Banned From Competing In Rio Olympics Due To State-Sponsored Doping Program – Daily Mail
.

.
The entire Russian Olympic team will today be banned from competing at the Rio Games next month, The Mail on Sunday understands.

According to well-placed sources, the International Olympic Committee will punish all 387 Russian sportsmen and women in the strongest possible way after revelations of their country’s state-sponsored doping programme shocked the world.

The country’s corrupt track and field stars have already been banned from the Games, and last week lost a desperate legal challenge to overturn that decision.

But today’s ruling – the most momentous in Olympic history – will see Russia’s medal hopes in cycling, judo, wrestling and all other disciplines excluded from competition in the wake of the scandal…

White House Pumps $4.5 Billion Into Electric Car Charging Amid Sales Slump – Washington Examiner

The White House unleashed $4.5 billion in new loan guarantees Thursday to build out the recharging infrastructure it hopes will make electric vehicles a reality and curb global warming.

The effort was announced at the closing of the Energy Department’s first-ever Sustainable Transportation Summit and a report from the Environmental Protection Agency that reaffirmed regulations to drive more electric cars into the market, despite falling sales of the vehicles due to low gasoline prices.

Low gasoline and diesel prices have caused more consumers to purchase newer sport utility vehicles and other large cars, instead of fuel-efficient vehicles like the hybrid-electric Prius or full-electric Nissan Leaf.

The White House called today’s action the next “responsible step to combat climate change, increase access to clean energy technologies, and reduce our dependence on oil,” according to a fact sheet issued along with the announcement.

It said the loan guarantees, along with a number of other actions it is announcing today, represent “an unprecedented set of actions from the federal government, private sector, and states, as well as a new framework for collaboration for vehicle manufacturers, electric utilities, electric vehicle charging companies, and states, all geared towards accelerating the deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and putting more electric vehicles on the road.”

The White House announcement began with the “unlocking” of “up to $4.5 billion in loan guarantees and inviting applications to support the commercial-scale deployment of innovative electric vehicle charging facilities.”…

Leaked Emails Show DNC Officials Planned Anti-Trump Protests – Daily Caller
.

The release of Democratic National Committee emails by WikiLeaks Friday reveals that DNC officials planned anti-Donald Trump protests.

In multiple emails, DNC officials signed off and acknowledged the existence of two anti-Donald Trump protests in South Bend, IN and Billings, MT. The release of nearly 20,000 emails is the first in a WikiLeaks “Hillary Leaks” series.

On April 29, a DNC press staffer, Rachel Palermo, alerted Eric Walker, deputy communications director, about a Facebook page for an anti-Trump protest on May 2 in South Bend. “Whoo! Thanks to our interns for finding this out.” Walker replies, “I like it, as long as the students feel safe getting involved. I imagine this demo will be nicer than the one in San Fran today.”…

Why Obama’s Half-Brother Says He’ll Be Voting For Trump – New York Post

President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again — so he’s voting for Donald Trump.

“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”

Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”

The last straw, he said, came earlier this month when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of a private e-mail servers while secretary of state.

“She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” said Obama.

He’s also annoyed that Clinton and President Obama killed Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, whom he called one of his best friends.

Malik Obama dedicated his 2012 biography of his late father to Khadafy and others who were “making this world a better place.”

“I still feel that getting rid of Khadafy didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.”

But what bothers him even more is the Democratic Party’s support of same-sex marriage.

“I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me,” he said…

CNN Trashes Its Own Poll After Receiving A 75 Percent Positive Response To Trump’s Nomination Speech – Breitbart

Donald Trump won the Republican nomination for president in Cleveland during a momentous week in political history.

On Thursday night, Trump gave a one-hour-and-fifteen-minute speech accepting the Republican nomination. The speech was so overwhelmingly well-received among the crowd that the media did not know what to do to tear it apart. Chyrons appeared on mainstream networks: “Trump Accepts Nomination.” Nothing scandalous.

CNN late-night host Don Lemon’s face was distraught during his panel, as was the face of one-time Ted Cruz employee Amanda Carpenter. Lemon’s show would play on the screens at public places without any sound, which was appreciated by the attendees…

U.S. Immigration Court Backlog Exceeds 500,000 Cases For First Time – BuzzFeed

The backlog of immigration court cases has ballooned to an all-time high of more than 500,000, a number fueled by unaccompanied minors and families from Central America, officials said Wednesday.

The Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) said there are 500,051 pending immigration cases in the U.S. system. To deal with the backlog, EOIR plans to boost the number of immigration judges from 277 to 399.

“This is our highest pending caseload,” Kathryn Mattingly, a spokeswoman for EOIR, told BuzzFeed News. “We currently have approximately 100 more immigration judges at various stages of the hiring process.”

The backlog has been fueled by a growing number of unaccompanied minors and families, mostly from Central America, who have been crossing the border in recent years. Many of them are fleeing violence back home and are seeking better economic prospects in the US.

Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, which also reported on the backlog, said the judicial appointments have so far been insufficient to curb the court system backlog because the number of new cases continues to outpace the number of those closed each month.

The new figure is up from 456,216 at the beginning of this fiscal year nine months ago, and up from 408,037 at the beginning of fiscal year 2015, TRAC reported…

Hillary Clinton Picks Virginia Senator Tim Kaine For Running Mate – Wall Street Journal
.

.
Hillary Clinton named Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine to be her running mate Friday night, turning to a seasoned politician from a battleground state and a figure long seen as the favorite to complete the Democratic presidential ticket.

“Tim is a lifelong fighter for progressive causes and one of the most qualified vice presidential candidates in our nation’s history,” Mrs. Clinton said in an email to supporters a day after GOP nominee Donald Trump scorched her in a speech to the Republican National Convention. On Twitter, she called Mr. Kaine “a man who’s devoted his life to fighting for others.”

Mr. Kaine, also on Twitter, said he couldn’t wait to hit the trail with her Saturday in Miami. The senator, 58 years old, is widely considered a safe choice befitting a cautious presumptive nominee, and people close to the campaign have seen him as the front-runner for months. He is broadly respected in the Senate, has a foreign-policy background and is seen by Mrs. Clinton and close aides as a potentially strong partner in governing…

Virginia’s Top Court Rules Against Leftist Governor’s Move To Restore Felons’ Voting Rights – News Max

The Virginia Supreme Court ruled on Friday against Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe’s order restoring voting rights to more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences, court documents show.

The court in a 4-3 ruling said McAuliffe overstepped his clemency powers under the state constitution by issuing a sweeping order in April restoring rights to all ex-offenders who are no longer incarcerated or on probation or parole.

In its opinion, the Virginia Supreme Court said that none of the state’s previous 71 governors had ever issued a clemency order to a class of felons.

“To be sure, no governor of Virginia, until now, has even suggested that such a power exists,” the court said. “And the only governors who have seriously considered the question concluded that no such power exists.”

If the court had upheld McAuliffe’s April 22 executive order, it could have helped to tip Virginia, a perennial swing state in presidential elections, in favor of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Clinton chose U.S. Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia as her vice presidential running mate on Friday to help her do battle with Republican nominee Donald Trump in November’s election.

John Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, hailed the ruling, saying in a statement that McAuliffe’s decision amounted to “a blatant effort to stack the deck for Hillary Clinton in November.”…

Traitor John Kerry: Climate Change As Dangerous As Terrorism – CNS

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that climate change is as dangerous as, if not more, than the threats posed by the Islamic State and other extremist groups.

Speaking Friday in Vienna at an international climate change conference, Kerry said the issue might not get as much public attention as terrorism but that the meeting is as important as a gathering he hosted only Thursday in Washington on combatting the Islamic State.

“What you are doing here right now is of equal importance, because it has the ability literally to save life on this planet,” Kerry told the conference of parties to the 1987 Montreal Protocol, a global treaty to end the use of many chlorofluorocarbons from aerosols and refrigerants that deplete the ozone layer…

TSA Agents Took Upskirt Photos Of Women At Seattle Airport, Prosecutors Say – Washington Post

A Transportation Security Administration agent was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of taking upskirt photos of female passengers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Nicholas James Fernandez, 29, was detained as part of a voyeurism investigation. He’s been suspended indefinitely without pay pending the outcome of the case.

King County, Wash., prosecutors say Fernandez left a TSA checkpoint during a break at 11:15 a.m. and rode an escalator to a lower level of the airport where he stood behind a woman wearing a skirt and began videotaping beneath it with his mobile phone, according to a probable cause statement.

Fernandez was under surveillance by a TSA special agent and Port of Seattle Police detectives at the time. The TSA had previously received a tip from a male passenger that Fernandez was surreptitiously photographing women, according to the statement and charging documents.

Fernandez was placed in detention at the King County Regional Justice Center, where he remains, on two counts of voyeurism, a class C felony that carries five years of jail time if convicted, with a combined bond of $27,500.

A TSA spokesman said in a statement that the agency does not tolerate “illegal, unethical or immoral conduct.”

“When such conduct is alleged, TSA investigates it thoroughly,” the statement added. “When appropriate, TSA investigates jointly with other law enforcement agencies or requests that a law enforcement authority investigate the allegation. When an investigation finds that misconduct has occurred, the appropriate action is taken.”…

Black Lives Matter Racists Reject Barbecue With Cops: ‘I Eat Pigs, I Don’t Eat With Them’ – Breitbart

The Oakland Police Department (OPD) extended an invitation to followers of the Black Lives Matter movement to participate in a barbecue to start a constructive dialogue between the two groups. However, the police were met with flat-out rejection by a spokesperson who referred to law enforcement as “pigs.”

“A BBQ is definitely not going to stop this blockade,” Karissa Lewis, a self-described “radical black farmer from East Oakland,” told local Fox affiliate KTVU. “And as a radical-black farmer from East Oakland, I eat pigs, I don’t eat with them,” she said.

According to KTVU, Lewis used the “mic-check call and response technique,” which was popularized at many of the Occupy protests, in order to rally support for her response from fellow protesters, who also rejected the offer. KTVU notes that “many of the activists, at least at this one protest, seemed to be in agreement with her about the offer.”…

Texas State Employee Busted Selling Driver’s Licenses To Illegals For $2,000 Apiece – American Mirror

A San Antonio woman who works for the Texas Department of Public Safety was sentenced this week to 35 months in federal prison for issuing driver’s licenses to about 150 illegal immigrants.

Linda Ann Perez, 47, sold the licenses to illegal immigrants for between $1,000 and $2,000 each while working as a clerk at a state office on South Gen. McMullen Drive in San Antonio, a scam that netted an estimated $215,000, according to court documents cited by the San Antonio Express-News.

Department of Public Safety officials realized something funny was going on last spring and alerted Homeland Security Investigations and Texas Rangers.

“According to prosecutors and court records, the bribes were generally delivered to her office counter in brown paper bags carrying food,” according to the news site.

“Homeland Security officials have expressed concern about Perez’s actions, saying the people who received the licenses were not vetted, and the officials surmised some could possibly ‘do our country harm.’ Officials said a handful of the immigrants were tracked down, but others couldn’t be because they might not have provided their real names.”

Perez, who worked for DPS for eight years, pleaded guilty in November, and Chief U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia sentenced her to 35 months in federal prison and ordered her to pay $215,000. The woman’s attorney, Louis Vera Jr., told the Express-News he’s working to enroll his client in a drug treatment program in prison to cut time off her sentence.

Several folks who commented about Perez’s predicament online were clearly not impressed by the scam…

Wikileaks has released nearly 20,000 emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee officials.

The release could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention, which kicks off next week in Philadelphia.
