.

.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, signaling that he is aggressively pursuing plans to erect “a great wall” along the 2,000-mile border.

The agency said it will request bids on or around March 6 and that companies would have to submit “concept papers” to design and build prototypes by March 10, according to a website for federal contractors.

The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20 and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by March 24…

Why I Will Leave The Democratic Party If Ellison Is Elected Its Chairman – Alan Dershowitz

Tomorrow the Democratic National Committee (DNC) will have to choose the direction of the Democratic Party, as well as its likely composition. It will be among the most important choices the DNC has ever had to make.

There has been a powerful push from the hard-left of the Democratic Party, led by senator Bernie Sanders, to elect Keith Ellison chairman. If he is elected, I will quit the party after 60 years of loyal association and voting.

I will become an independent, continuing to vote for the best candidates, most of whom, I assume, will still be Democrats. But I will not contribute to the DNC or support it as an institution. My loyalty to my country and my principles and my heritage exceeds any loyalty to my party.

I will urge other like-minded people – centrist liberals – to follow my lead and quit the Democratic Party if Ellison is elected Chairman. We will not be leaving the Democratic Party we have long supported. The Democratic Party will be leaving us!..

Psychopath In BMW Runs Over Girl Walking Down The Sidewalk With Her Mother – Daily Mail

A sickening video shows a driver deliberately mounting the pavement mowing down an unsuspecting teenage girl on a shopping trip with her mother.

The 17-year-old was left with serious head and neck injuries following the smash in Bromsgrove Street, Birmingham city centre at around 6.30pm on January 28.

The shocking 16-second clip shows the mother and daughter casually walking down the street as a black BMW 5 Series comes into view behind them and stops at a junction.

The driver even indicates as he calmly turns into the road before suddenly swerving onto the pavement and ploughing into the girl – sending her sprawling across the concrete.

Her mother throws up her arms in horror and rushes to the girl’s aid as the car speeds away.

Another car driving closely behind the BMW appears to carry on without stopping.

The victim was taken to hospital and is said to still be recovering from her injuries…

The Ten Worst Cases Of ‘Very Fake News’ – Deborah Weiss

As you all know by now, Trump has repeatedly accused the MSM of disseminating “fake news”, a charge that is thrown back at Trump by Leftist propaganda media outlets posing as news organizations. For those of you who do not understand what “fake news” is, it is not just unsubstantiated or inaccurate stories that constitute fake news; it’s the biased (and very possibly coordinated) steady drum beat of characterizations, foundationless questions and the one sided selection of what is reported. Following are some examples of MSM fake news.

1) The Russians “hacked the election”, giving the false impression that Russia was able to get into the voting machines, and designed to lead the viewer to believe that Donald Trump did not win the election fairly, legally or honestly.

2) Donald Trump is “anti-Semitic” simply because he didn’t word things the way they wanted him to, and ignoring or failing to report Trump’s policy positions that constitute the most pro-Israel positions we have seen in decades, including discussions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and the UN Ambassador’s position to ensure that Israel will be protected at the UN…

Trump Says It’s Time For U.S. To Boost Its Nuclear Arsenal – New York Post

President Trump said on Thursday he wants to build up the U.S. nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the “top of the pack,” saying the United States has fallen behind in its atomic weapons capacity.

In a Reuters interview, Trump also complained about Russian deployment of a cruise missile in violation of an arms control treaty and said he would raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin when and if they meet.

On another front, Trump said China could solve the national security challenge posed by North Korea “very easily if they want to,” ratcheting up pressure on Beijing to exert more influence to rein in Pyongyang’s increasingly bellicose actions.

Speaking from behind his desk in the Oval Office, Trump also declared himself “very angry” at North Korea’s ballistic missile tests and said accelerating a missile defense system for U.S. allies Japan and South Korea was among many options available…

What About Consent? Chris Cuomo’s Depraved Beliefs About Little Girls And Penises – Daily Wire

In defense of allowing guys into the girl’s locker rooms, on his verified twitter feed Thursday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo declaratively stated that a 12-year-old girl who doesn’t consent to looking at a penis is “the problem.” Or maybe the problem is “her overprotective and intolerant dad.”

After the backlash hit, Cuomo apparently deleted the above tweet and claimed, “This isn’t about a scared girl. It is about an overprotective parent who is afraid without basis.”

And that is what you call a distinction without a difference.

Regardless of whether or not Cuomo is blaming the child, what kind of sick freak believes there is something wrong with, or broken inside of, a 12-year-old girl who does not consent to being exposed to a penis?

You see, Cuomo’s highest value is not what this child agrees to or does not agree to be exposed to herself, his highest value is allowing guys into the girl’s locker room…

SEIU Loons Attempt To Protest GOP Lawmaker, Refuse To Leave After Being Told They’re At The Wrong House – Washington Free Beacon

Union leaders in California continued a protest even after neighbors and police informed them they were at the wrong house because their target, Rep. Steve Knight (R., Calif.), had moved away months ago.

The group of over 50 protestors, who arrived in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) vans, carried a fake coffin to the house to send a message that Knight’s votes in Congress were “killing” them, according to a report in the local Antelope Valley Press.

Police arrived at the scene to alert the union protestors that they were in the wrong place, but the activists – who had already been informed of this fact by neighbors – decided to continue the protest anyway. The police removed the protestors from the home’s driveway and front lawn, where they were holding a candlelight vigil.

An aide to California State Assembly Leader Anthony Rendon defended the protestors, saying that it was not an “embarrassment.”…

Arizona Senate Votes To Seize Assets Of Those Who Plan, Participate In Protests That Turn Violent – Arizona Capitol Times

Claiming people are being paid to riot, Republican state senators voted Wednesday to give police new power to arrest anyone who is involved in a peaceful demonstration that may turn bad – even before anything actually happened.

SB1142 expands the state’s racketeering laws, now aimed at organized crime, to also include rioting. And it redefines what constitutes rioting to include actions that result in damage to the property of others.

But the real heart of the legislation is what Democrats say is the guilt by association – and giving the government the right to criminally prosecute and seize the assets of everyone who planned a protest and everyone who participated…

Homicides In Chicago Outpacing Last Year After Deadliest Day So Far In 2017 – Chicago Tribune

Homicides are now outpacing last year in Chicago after the city experienced its deadliest day so far this year, according to data kept by the Tribune.

That’s the most homicides since Christmas Day last year, when eight people were killed in the city.

Homicides had been lagging behind last year, which had been the deadliest in two decades. But by Wednesday evening, the city had recorded its 99th homicide two days earlier than it did last year, according to Tribune data.

Like last year, the Harrison police district on the West Side has seen the most homicides: 16 this year compared to 12 this time last year, according to Tribune data.

New Hampshire Eliminates License Requirement To Carry Concealed Firearms – Concord Monitor

The moment marked a GOP victory one week after the bruising defeat of right-to-work, one of Sununu’s top priorities. Republicans in control of the Legislature have sought to repeal the licensing requirement in recent years, but Democratic Gov.

Philadelphia’s Leftist Soda Tax Leads To 30-50% Plunge In Sales, Mass Layoffs – Zero Hedge

When Philadelphia became the first US city to pass a soda tax last summer, city officials were eagerly looking forward to the surplus-tax funded windfall to plug gaping budget deficits (and, since this is Philadelphia, the occasional embezzlement scheme).

Then, one month ago, after the tax went into effect on January 1st we showed the tax applied in practice: a receipt for a 10 pack of flavored water carried a 51% beverage tax. And since PA has a sales tax of 6% and Philly already charges another 2%, the total sales tax was 8%. In other words, a purchase which until last year came to $6.47 had overnight become $9.75.

What happened next? Precisely what most expected would happen: full blown sticker shock, and a collapse in purchases.

According to Philly.com reports, two months into the city’s sweetened-beverage tax, supermarkets and distributors are reporting a 30% to 50% drop in beverage sales and – adding insult to injury – are now planning for layoffs…

Lawsuits Against Trump On ‘Muslim Immigration Ban’ Will Fail Fast – Robert Barnes

Council American-Islamic Relations announced an intention to sue President Donald Trump over his executive order banning most immigrants from Syria, and other countries that lack certain vetting standards and have issues with terrorism. Overnight, refugees who were in the air on the way to the United States are now being detained, and have also filed legal actions. The ban is perceived by some as a partial Muslim ban. Either way, at any trial, the law supports Trump’s order, and CAIR or others are likely to lose, completely, conclusively and quickly.

Liberal lawyer critics of Trump are making a habit of losing in their appeal to any branch other than elections – lost recount lawsuits, lost elector lawsuits, lost Russia-conspiracy derived lawsuits. Now, get ready to add lost emolument lawsuits and lost immigration lawsuits.

The Constitution gives Congress and the President exclusive, plenary control over immigration. This is how both Carter and Obama could single out various states or beliefs to exclude migrants on that basis, as both did.

At Least 25 Million Dead And Fraudulent “Registered Voters” In 2016 – Real Strategy

Trump Considering 20% Border Tax On Mexican Imports To Help Fund Wall – Business Insider

Spicer said the border tax would be part of a broader tax reform package and would help pay for the proposed wall along the US-Mexico border, according to the report.

“It clearly provides the funding and does so in a way that the American taxpayer is wholly respected,” Spicer said.

Spicer also claimed that the move “gets us in line, frankly, with the policies” of every other “major country” in the world.

Spicer later told NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander that the border tax was not a policy proposal, but an example of how to pay for the wall. Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus also said the tax was one of a “buffet of options” for paying for the wall…

During a memorial service for a victim of criminal gun violence on the South Side of Chicago, six people were shot including a 12-year-old girl.

Community activist Jedidiah Brown told reporters that “the opposition” to those attending the memorial came through an alley before opening fire on the group of mourners. He added that the mother of the person being memorialized was also among the victims, though police have not confirmed that information.

A 12-year-old girl suffered a graze wound to the head from a bullet, police said, and was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where her condition had stabilized.

Four of the victims are in stable condition while two remain in serious condition.

“I’m asking that those individuals who may see this, that are planning retaliation right now, that you stand down from that and that we look for peaceful alternatives,” Brown said.

Police have not made any arrests yet.

So far in January 2016, 44 people have been shot and killed and 219 have been shoot and wounded. The city has seen 45 homicides this month with six days left in the month…

“The British people have made the decision to leave the EU… so today we have introduced a bill in parliament which will allow us to formally trigger Article 50 by the end of March,” said Brexit minister David Davis.

The two clause “European Union Notification of Withdrawal Bill” asks parliament to give May authority to “notify, under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU.”

The government said MPs would get their first chance to debate it on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

Obamacare On The Ropes As House Follows Senate In Voting To Repeal – Breitbart

The House of Representatives voted Friday to approve Senate Concurrent Resolution 3, which sets in motion the repeal of President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform legislation, Obamacare, by a vote of 227-to-198, with nine Republicans voting against the repeal bill.

“This provided Congress with the legislative tools that we need to repeal and replace Obamacare,” said Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R.-Wis.), who spoke on the House floor before the vote. “This is the critical first step toward delivering relief to Americans who are struggling under this law.”

It is very rare for a speaker to take to the House floor and comment on a bill, so Ryan’s remarks signal the importance of the vote.

“The law is collapsing, the insurers are pulling out, and people can’t afford it,” he said.

“The deductibles are so high, it doesn’t even feel like you have insurance in the first place,” Ryan said. “This is a rescue mission. This is a necessary move and I urge all of my colleagues to do what is right.”

Nine Republicans voted with Democrats against the bill and no Democrats voted for the bill.

After Ryan was done, he shook hands with other Republicans and walked off the floor.

Although it is the custom for the speaker not to vote, Ryan did join the rest of his conference to support passage of the bill that does not truly repeal the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Rather, because it is a bill using the track set up to pass the federal budget, it only addresses the financial underpinnings of Obamacare, such as the fees, taxes and, subsidies. Future legislation would have to address the rules and regulations…

Guccifer 2.0 Comes Out Of Hiding: I Breached DNC Network, The Intel Russia Report “A Crude Fake” – Gateway Pundit

Hacker Guccifer 2.0 came out of hiding and posted his first tweet since November on Thursday.

The obscure hacker admits he breached the DNC network in his latest post. He also says the Russia Report released by the CIA is a “crude fake.”

Guccifer 2.0 reported:

I really hope you’ve missed me a lot. Though I see they didn’t let you forget my name. The U.S. intelligence agencies have published several reports of late claiming I have ties with Russia.

I’d like to make it clear enough that these accusations are unfounded. I have totally no relation to the Russian government. I’d like to tell you once again I was acting in accordance with my personal political views and beliefs.

The technical evidence contained in the reports doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. This is a crude fake.

Any IT professional can see that a malware sample mentioned in the Joint Analysis Report was taken from the web and was commonly available. A lot of hackers use it. I think it was inserted in the report to make it look a bit more plausible.

I already explained at The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference that took place in London in last September, I had used a different way to breach into the DNC network. I found a vulnerability in the NGP VAN software installed in the DNC system.

It’s obvious that the intelligence agencies are deliberately falsifying evidence. In my opinion, they’re playing into the hands of the Democrats who are trying to blame foreign actors for their failure…

Baby Kidnapped From Florida Hospital Found Safe 18 Years Later – One America News

A woman who was taken as a baby from a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1998 has been found safe, Florida authorities said on Friday, and the South Carolina woman she believed to be her mother has been arrested for kidnapping.

Kamiyah Mobley, now 18, was located in Walterboro, South Carolina, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, which confirmed her identity through DNA testing.

She appeared to be in good health and “a normal 18-year-old woman,” Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said at a news conference.

“This young woman was abducted as a newborn, and she is going to need time and assistance to process all this,” Williams said. “She is taking it as well as you can imagine.”

The woman’s biological family was overwhelmed when they learned the news. It will be up to the victim to determine future contact, he said.

Authorities found Mobley through tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She was living under a different name established through fraudulent documents, the sheriff said, declining to release that name.

“She had an inclination beginning probably a couple of months ago that she may have been involved in this in some way,” the sheriff said.

The baby was only hours old when a woman, dressed as a nurse in a flowered smock and green hospital pants, abducted her from her mother’s room, according to the 1998 incident report…

Would You Want To Board Flight 666 To HEL On Friday The 13th? Finnish Jet Flies To Helsinki (And It’s A 13-Year-Old Plane) – Daily Mail

A spooky Friday the 13th coincidence paired the widely-regarded number of the devil with Helskinki resulting in flight 666 to HEL.

The Finnair flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen at 12.15pm today and was expected to land in Finland at 3.50pm.

Although it got off to a bad start as the jet, which also happens to be 13-years-old, took of a minute late – it landed safely at its destination even making up nine minutes.

The flight has been running for years, but the airline said it becomes popular whenever it lands on Friday the 13th.

Last year, it happened on May 13, and landed three minutes late without any problems.

Pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto has previously told RT: ‘It has been quite a joke among the pilots. I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me,’.

‘If there’s some passenger who is anxious about this 666, our cabin crew is always happy to help them.’

Flight tracker Twitter account Flightradar24 poked fun at the coincidence, saying: ‘Would you dare to sit in row 13, on board Finnair flight 666 en route to Hel on Friday the 13th?’

Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13, which dates back to the late 1800s.

A specific fear of Friday the 13th is called Paraskevidekatriaphobia, which derives from the from the Greek word paraskeví meaning Friday, and dekatria meaning thirteen.

While the number 666 is widely regarded as the number of the devil, some argue the number is 616…

How Venezuela’s Corrupt Socialists Are Looting The Country To Death – New York Post

Venezuela is no longer a country with a government, institutions and a civil society. It’s a geographic area terrorized by a criminal enterprise that pretends to govern, with a civil society made up of two sets of people: accomplices and victims.

More than 30 million of the latter.

The Hugo Chavez-led looting spree began in 2000. By “looting,” I mean fraudulent government contracts, a celebration of bribery, phantom payrolls across all government ministries, bogus government-grant programs, the sacking of Venezuela’s gold reserves and a massive currency-exchange scam.

More than $1 trillion has disappeared – some of it wasted on social programs that produced nothing – and a staggering amount has ended up in bank accounts in Andorra, Panama, New York, Hong Kong and Switzerland.

And the pillaging has turned Venezuela into a dystopian landscape. There are shortages of every imaginable foodstuff and basic necessity; diseases once thought eradicated are back with a vengeance; and a crime wave that has given Caracas the highest murder rate in the world.

Loving parents are putting their children up for adoption because they have nothing to feed them; the elderly are starving; patients with treatable conditions are dying in hospitals that lack basic medicine like insulin and oxygen, where vital equipment has been pilfered and emergency rooms operate without electricity. In a gruesome twist, even the morgues can’t handle the number of unclaimed bodies, so they rot in hallways…

Iowa Defunds Planned Parenthood, Cuts Off Libs’ Health Argument By Funding Comprehensive Clinics – Conservative Tribune

Man Gets Back At DMV By Paying His Auto Sales Tax With 300,000 Unrolled Pennies – Law Newz

A Virginia man became so frustrated with his local department of motor vehicles that he decided to strike back by showing up with five wheelbarrows full of change on Wednesday to pay the sales tax on a car he recently purchased.

Nick Stafford posted the entire backstory on his blog behind what culminated with him showing up at the local DMV with $2,987.45 worth of unrolled pennies to pay the sales tax due on a pair of vehicles he purchased last year. The pennies weighed over 1600 pounds.

According to Stafford’s account, the “DMV started counting the pennies using automated coin counting machines but the machines were jamming so they [had to start] counting the pennies by hand…”

He added, “As of right now it is 6:08 p.m. and all the DMV employees are staying late to finish counting.”

Stafford claims it ultimately took nearly 12 hours for the employees to complete counting the 298,745 pennies by hand.

During an interview with one local outlet, Stafford said he did all of this simply to “inconvenience” the DMV for not providing him with a phone number to call and answer questions he had about the vehicle purchase and titling process. He also filed several state records request lawsuits and claims to have spent an additional $1,000 in the process simply “to prove a point.”

Filing a lawsuit against the DMV “took time out of my day, so I brought pennies here to the DMV to register two vehicles – that is the reason,” Stafford said…

Trump Promises Full Report On Hacking In First 90 Days – Bloomberg

“Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans,” Trump said in a Twitter post Friday, adding in a later tweet, “My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!’’

In a flurry of early morning messages, the president-elect also suggested that the intelligence community had leaked damaging information about his alleged ties to Russia, after news reports published information about a dossier claiming the Kremlin had compromised him.

“Russia says nothing exists,’’ Trump said on Twitter. “Probably released by ‘Intelligence’ even knowing there is no proof, and never will be.’’

Obama Regime Used ‘Russia Blackmail’ Claim To Warm Israel Not To Trust Trump – Breitbart

U.S. intelligence officials warned their Israeli counterparts not to trust President-elect Donald Trump with intelligence secrets, citing alleged fears that Russia held blackmail information over Trump, according to a report today in Israel’s respected Yediot Ahronot daily newspaper.

The alleged blackmail information that U.S. officials reportedly warned Israel about seems to be in part referencing details contained in a debunked document of mysterious origin purporting to be an intelligence report alleging that Russia collected compromising videos and information on Trump.

In the report, investigative journalist Ronen Bergman writes of a meeting that took place “recently between Israeli and American intelligence officials (the date of the meeting is not mentioned to protect the sources of the report).”

Continued Bergman:

During the meeting, according to the Israelis who participated in it, their American colleagues voiced despair over Trump’s election, as he often lashes out at the American intelligence community. The American officials also told the Israelis that the National Security Agency (NSA) had “highly credible information” that Russia’s intelligence agencies, the FSB and GRU, were responsible for hacking the Democratic Party (DNC) servers during the elections and leaking sensitive information to WikiLeaks, which hurt Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The American officials further added that they believed Russian President Vladimir Putin had “leverages of pressure” over Trump – but did not elaborate. They were apparently referring to what was published Wednesday about embarrassing information collected by the Russian intelligence in a bid to blackmail the president-elect…

German Court Calls Synagogue Torching An Act To ‘Criticize Israel’ – Jerusalem Post

A German regional court in the city of Wuppertal affirmed a lower court decision last Friday stating that a violent attempt to burn the city’s synagogue by three men in 2014 was a justified expression of criticism of Israel’s policies.

Johannes Pinnel, a spokesman for the regional court in Wuppertal, outlined the court’s decision in a statement. Three German Palestinians sought to torch the Wuppertal synagogue with Molotov cocktails in July, 2014. The local Wuppertal court panel said in its 2015 decision that the three men wanted to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict” with Israel. The court deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism.

Israel launched Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014 to stop Hamas rocket attacks into Israeli territory.

The court sentenced the three men – the 31-year-old Mohamad E., the 26-year-old Ismail A. and the 20-year-old Mohammad A.- to suspended sentences. The men tossed self-made Molotov cocktails at the synagogue. German courts frequently decline to release the last names of criminals to protect privacy.

The attack caused €800 damage to the synagogue. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans during the Kristallnacht pogroms in 1938. Wuppertal has a population of nearly 344,000 and is located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The court said the men had consumed alcohol and there were no injuries to members of the synagogue.

A 13-year-old who lived near the synagogue and noticed the flames informed the police. Several days before the fire, a person sprayed “Free Palestine” on a wall of the synagogue…

Senate Panel Approves Special Waiver That Will Allow General Mattis To Become Secretary Of Defense – IJR

The Senate Committee on Armed Services passed a waiver to allow retired U.S. Marine Corps General James Mattis to serve as the next Secretary of Defense, bypassing the rule that would have kept him from taking the position with seven years of active duty service.

By a vote of 24-3, the Senate panel passed the waive following Mattis’ confirmation hearing Thursday. The three votes came from Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), Elizabeth Warren (MA) and Richard Blumenthal (CT).

On the subject of keeping civilians in charge of the Pentagon, Mattis said, “I recognize my potential civilian role differs in essence and in substance from my former role in uniform,” adding:

“Civilian control of the military is a fundamental tenet of the American military tradition.”

The rule preventing recently retired military personnel from becoming Secretary of Defense has only been exempted once, when the Senate waived U.S. Army General George Marshall in 1950.

After the hearing, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who chairs the committee, said the overwhelming support from Democrats during the panel vote to approve the waiver will be mimicked across the chamber for the next step of approval.

“Oh I think it was very strong support there on the waiver,” McCain said. “So that’s indicative of the kind of vote we’ll get on the floor.”…

L.L. Bean Stands Up To Screeching, Leftist Assclowns; Trump Tweets Support – Washington Free Beacon

President-elect Donald Trump tweeted in support of Bean shortly after her appearance on Fox News.

Bean is a member of the board of directors for the L.L. Bean company, and she has recently been targeted by liberal activists for personally supporting Trump. Bean made a donation of $30,000 to the political action committee Making Maine Great Again in August.

The anti-Trump group #Grab Your Wallet has started a boycott against L.L. Bean for Linda Bean’s personal donation to a pro-Trump PAC.

The Sessions Smear – Rich Lowry

NAACP officials have already been arrested in an anti-Jeff Sessions protest. The Alabama senator’s confirmation battle as attorney general is sure to generate lots of heat and very little light. He will likely prevail, but not before his name is dragged through the gutter in an execrable exercise in contemporary racial politics.

At least Sessions is familiar with how this works. He went through the experience in 1986 when his nomination to a federal judgeship was rejected by a U.S. Senate committee on spurious grounds.

The outcome of that kangaroo trial is practically the first sentence in every article and petition opposing Sessions, and has become an endless warrant for calling him a racist, usually without his accusers even seriously trying to back up their allegations. Didn’t the Senate reject Sessions for racial insensitivity in 1986? What else is there to know?

The legend of the 1986 hearings lives on every time a media organization or a Democrat refers to Sessions speaking favorably of the KKK. The Sessions statement came in the course of an investigation into a hideous Klan murder of a black man whose throat was slit and corpse hung from a tree.

Barry Kowalski was a trial lawyer from the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department at the time. He recalled in 1986 Senate testimony that he was explaining to Sessions how it was difficult to nail down what the Klansmen were doing one night because they had smoked marijuana and their memories were fuzzy. It was then that Sessions said he used to support the Klan until he learned they smoked pot.

It never pays to try to explain a joke to people who are humorless out of professional obligation, but the point of the mordant comment was that Sessions was referring to the very least of the Klan’s sins…

Winston Churchill Bust Set For Oval Office Return By Donald Trump – Daily Telegraph

Donald Trump has made no secret of the fact that he intends to rip up Barack Obama’s legacy when he takes office – ending the Trans-Pacific Partnership, redrawing Obamacare and loading up Guantanamo with “some bad dudes”.

However, one expected action is likely to be less controversial, certainly in Britain: that of restoring the bust of Winston Churchill to the Oval Office.

Mr Trump, who has frequently professed his admiration for Britain’s wartime leader, was asked earlier this week whether he was considering returning the bust, sculpted by Jacob Epstein, to the White House.

“I am, indeed, I am,” he said, during an interview at the New York Times, at which he was sitting in front of a picture of Churchill…

Arkansas State Employee Gets 9 Years In Prison For Swindling 6.1M From Program Designed To Feed Hungry Kids – Real Strategy

A 16-year veteran Arkansas state employee has been sentenced to 9 years in prison after admitting taking bribes to allow two women to steal millions of dollars in federal funds intended to feed hungry children.

Tonique Hatton admitted in September that while working at the Arkansas Department of Human Services she took bribes in 2012, 2013 and 2014 to enabling the two women to fraudulently illegally obtain $6.1 million of Department of Agriculture funds, according to Arkansas Democratic Gazette.

Federal prosecutors said Hatton accepted $30,770 in bribe checks made out to her, and another $62,700 in bribe checks made out to a relative, to approve the applications.

She pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit wire fraud.

In addition to her prison term, Hatton is jointly responsible for repaying more than $7.6 million in stolen federal funds intended to feed hungry children.

Federal prosecutors said Jacqueline Mills, Gladys King, Tonique Hatton, and Kittie Jordan worked together to overstate the number of children served in its feeding program and then pocketed their ill-gotten gains.

The DHS started noticing irregularities in 2014, just as the after-school and summer program had grown as the state aggressively tried to combat child hunger. Agency officials suspected an employee may have been involved but took no action. Instead they notified federal officials, who began an investigation, according to KARK…

What Explains The Idiocy Of The Liberal Elite? It’s Their Education – James Batholomew
.

.
Enough! Enough! For months, the so-called liberal elite has been writing articles, having radio and TV discussions, giving sermons (literally) and making speeches in which it has struggled to understand those strange creatures: ordinary people.

The elite is bemused by what drives these people to make perverse decisions about Brexit and Trump. Are they racist, narrow-minded or just stupid? Whatever the reason, ordinary people have frankly been a disappointment.

Time, ladies and gentlemen, please! Instead, let’s do the opposite. Let’s try to explain to ordinary people what drives the liberal elite. The elite persists with some very strange and disturbing views. Are its members brainwashed, snobbish or just so remote from real life that they do not understand how things work? What is the pathology of liberal eliteness?..

Prisoner Serving Life For Murdering Wife During Conjugal Visit Stabs New Girlfriend To Death During Conjugal Visit – Daily Mail

A prisoner already serving time for killing his wife on a conjugal visit took advantage of his continued private visiting rights to also murder his new girlfriend in front of their baby.

Gabriel ‘Chirete’ Herrera, 39, stabbed Andrea Neri, 20, in a private visiting room in a prison in the city of Villa de las Rosas, in the north-western Argentine province of Salta.

Their two-month-old child was in the room at the time.

Just minutes after Ms Neri went inside with her baby, Herrera emerged holding the child and confessed to a prison guard that he had killed his girlfriend.

The baby was not reported to have been injured and is being taken care of by the victim’s mother.

It is the second time Herrera has killed his partner on a private prison visit.

Arrested in 2003 for robbery and murder, in 2006 he killed his former wife Veronica Castro, 29, strangling her with a shirt.

Then held in Metan Prison, Herrera came out of the visiting room and told his victim’s mother: ‘I have just killed your daughter.’

Veronica Castro’s mother came to the Villa de las Rosas prison to support the family of Herrera’s latest victim.

She told local media: ‘I told Andrea when she was about to give birth that she should be careful of him because he is a murderer.’

Local director of prisons Cesar Rodriguez said that all prisoners had the right to private visits from spouses or partners…

Congress Certifies Trump Victory, Despite Last-Minute Objections By Whiny, Leftist Bitches – Fox News

A joint session of Congress on Friday formally certified President-elect Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory, over the last-minute objections of several Democratic lawmakers who tried to contest the outcome – and were instructed by Vice President Biden, “It is over.”

The certification clears away any final hurdles for Trump’s road to the inauguration in two weeks.

Trump was certified as winning the White House race with 304 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227. Mike Pence was certified as the next vice president.

But as with other formalities in this election that normally would proceed without much ado, Friday’s certification was marked by moments of drama.

5 Killed, 8 Wounded At Fort Lauderdale Airport By Gunman Identified As Esteban Santiago – Orlando Sentinel

An arriving airline passenger with a gun in his checked luggage opened fire in the baggage claim area at the Fort Lauderdale airport Friday, killing five people and wounding eight before throwing his weapon down and lying spread-eagle on the ground, authorities and witnesses said.

The gunman – identified by authorities as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago, an Army National Guard veteran who served in Iraq but was discharged last year for unsatisfactory performance – was immediately taken into custody. His brother said he had been receiving psychological treatment recently.

An authority says Santiago flew out of Anchorage, Alaska. Jesse Davis, chief of police at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, told The Associated Press that a firearm was his only piece of checked luggage. He says Santiago flew from Anchorage to Minneapolis-St. Paul and on to Fort Lauderdale.

Davis said Santiago didn’t call attention to himself and “as far as we can tell” traveled alone, but he said the investigation is ongoing. Authorities are trying to track Santiago’s movements through Alaska’s largest commercial airport using video footage.

Davis noted that it’s not usual for travelers at the Alaska airport to check firearms because many people hunt.

One witness said the gunman apparently opened fire without a word and kept shooting until he ran out of ammunition, sending panicked travelers running out of the terminal and spilling onto the tarmac, baggage in hand.

Others crouched behind cars or anything else they could find to shield themselves as police and paramedics rushed in to help the wounded and establish whether there were any other attackers…

Stanley Black & Decker To Build New $35 Million U.S. Plant Thanks To Trump – USA Today

One of the nation’s best-known toolmakers, Stanley Black & Decker, said Thursday that it will move more manufacturing back to the U.S. from overseas, including construction of a new $35 million factory after acquiring the Craftsman brand from ailing retailer Sears Holdings.

Expanding American manufacturing makes “business sense” amid “pervasive” uncertainty regarding the future of U.S. trade with China and Mexico, Stanley Black & Decker CEO James Loree told investors Thursday in a conference call.

Although he did not mention Donald Trump by name in his remarks to investors, Loree hinted that the move has the side benefit of inoculating his company from the possible effects of the president-elect’s threatened “border tax,” a tariff on imports.

“It’s going to be advisable to have more manufacturing in the U.S.,” Loree said.

The sale of Craftsman marks another big move by Sears Holdings to stem losses. It also announced the closing of another 150 stores, including 108 Kmart locations.

Stanley Black & Decker is buying Craftsman for about $900 million, including future royalty payments. The move came several months after Sears put the Craftsman, Kenmore and DieHard brands up for sale as it seeks an elusive turnaround. Including the closing of 108 Kmart and 42 Sears stores, the company said the moves are “a difficult but necessary step as we take actions to strengthen the company’s operations and fund its transformation.”

Stanley Black & Decker has about 3,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs today, up 800 from three years ago, according to the toolmaker. It was not immediately clear how many jobs the company plans to add…

Record 95,102,000 Americans Not Participating In Labor Force – Washington Free Beacon

The number of Americans not participating in the labor force hit a record 95,102,000 in December 2016, according to the latest numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Last month, the number exceeded 95 million for the first time, with 95,084,000 Americans not participating.

The bureau counts those not in the labor force as people who do not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.

The labor force participation rate, which is the percentage of the population that has a job or actively looked for one in the past month, increased from 62.6 percent in November to 62.7 percent in December.

The unemployment rate for all Americans increased from 4.6 percent in November to 4.7 percent in December. This measure does not account for those individuals who have dropped out of the labor force and simply measures the percentage of those who did not have a job but actively sought one over the month.

The “real” unemployment rate, otherwise known as the U-6 measure, was 9.2 percent in December.

Democrats such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen have said this measure accounts for discouraged workers and those working part time instead of full time for economic reasons and is more representative of the labor market.

There were 5,598,000 Americans working part-time in December who would rather have a full-time job but cited economic reasons for not having such employment…

FBI Apparently Never Asked For Access To Hacked DNC Servers – New York Post

The FBI never bothered to inspect the Democratic National Committee’s infiltrated servers – despite claiming that the Russians were responsible for hacking the group’s servers, the according to a new report.

“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

Instead, the feds relied on an assessment by private tech company CrowdStrike, which was hired by the DNC to investigate the intrusion.

“Beginning at the time the intrusion was discovered by the DNC, the DNC cooperated fully with the FBI and its investigation, providing access to all of the information uncovered by CrowdStrike – without any limits,” Walker said.

An intel official told BuzzFeed: “CrowdStrike is pretty good. There’s no reason to believe that anything that they have concluded is not accurate.”

The revelation comes as the Obama administration has settled on the conclusion that the Russians were behind the election-interference maneuvers – while the incoming Trump administration has rejected that conclusion.

Al Qaeda senior leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a tape in August 2015, claiming that Hamza had joined the group. In the audio message, Hamza himself spoke and called for lone wolf attacks in Washington, DC, Paris and Tel Aviv.

He issued another audio message this past July, calling for ‘revenge against the United States’. The message specifically called on ‘Saudi Arabian-based tribes to unite with al Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen to wage war against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’ – an ally of the U.S.

Donald Trump Blasts ‘Head Clown’ Chuck Schumer For Continuing To Support Obamacare – Breitbart

President-elect Donald Trump is mocking Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for his press conference supporting Obamacare on Wednesday.

“The Democrats, lead [sic] by head clown Chuck Schumer, know how bad ObamaCare is and what a mess they are in,” Trump wrote on Twitter this morning. “Instead of working to fix it, they do the typical political thing and BLAME.”

Trump called Obamacare “a lie from the beginning,” specifically citing Democrat promises that people could keep their doctors and keep their existing health care plans.

“It is time for Republicans & Democrats to get together and come up with a healthcare plan that really works – much less expensive & FAR BETTER!” he concluded.

Schumer and congressional Democrats met with President Barack Obama on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to discuss the importance of blocking Republican efforts to repeal the law. During a press conference, Schumer denounced Republicans for trying to repeal the law and vowed that they would not help them replace it.

“The Republican plan to cut health care wouldn’t make America great again, it would make America sick again and lead to chaos instead of affordable care,” Schumer said…

DNC Chair Candidate Forum To Be Held At Anti-Israel Restaurant – Washington Free Beacon

The Democratic party’s slate of nominees have agreed to participate in a candidate forum hosted at a restaurant owned by a fierce critic of the Jewish State in the face of widespread criticism that one of the leading candidates to chair the Democratic National Committee is anti-Israel.

Candidates for the top DNC post will participate in a candidate forum later this month at Busboys and Poets in Washington, D.C., according to a Politico report. All the major candidates for the chairmanship except Labor Secretary Tom Perez have confirmed they will attend the forum, which is being hosted by Democratic advocacy group Democracy in Color.

Andy Shallal, an Iraqi-born political activist who uses his venue to advance a far-left political agenda, owns the restaurant.

Shallal is a vocal anti-Israel activist, stating that Israel is an “occupation” force guilty of “terrorizing” the Middle East. He has said the United States receives its “marching orders from Tel Aviv.”

“Israel continues to violate international law… while the U.S. and its allies sit on the side, getting its marching orders from Tel Aviv,” Shallal said during the World Says No to the Israel Occupation rally in 2007. “Folks, this is not an accident – this is a plan to create a new American-Israeli century, and those who dare to speak out will be squashed.”

“A century where the military will continue to call the shots, and where Israel, America’s largest arms depot, will continue to control and terrorize the region,” Shallal said…

Obama Commutes Sentences Of 72 More Drug Dealers; Total Exceeds Previous 11 Presidents Combined – Zero Hedge

Earlier today President Obama commuted the sentences of another 72 federal prisoners bringing his total to 944, more than the previous 11 presidents combined. This latest move is just further evidence of his stated intention to ramp up commutations throughout the remainder of his presidency. While the President often claims publicly that his commutations are only for “low-level” and “non-violent” criminals, The Hill points out that 16 of the 72 commutations from today were for people serving life sentences.

Friday’s clemency grants include 16 people serving life sentences. More than two dozen will be released as early as next spring, but many will not be freed immediately.

Some will not get out of prison until fall 2018. Other inmates’ releases are conditional on them entering enter residential drug treatment programs.

During the final stretch of his presidency, Obama has ramped up his use of clemency power to free prisoners serving lengthy sentences handed down during the government’s war on drugs.

In his typical fashion, the President also took to Twitter to brag about his latest “accomplishment.”

Of course, Obama has repeatedly denounced long sentences for “nonviolent, low-level” drug offenses as overly punitive, arguing they’ve had a devastating impact on “communities of color.” That said, we would encourage everyone to take a look at the DOJ’s list of offenses committed by the folks that Obama is intent upon releasing.

Illegal Aliens Take Over Hillary’s Campaign Office In Pittsburgh – Mad World News

There isn’t anything Hillary Clinton and her campaign wouldn’t do to ensure that she’s elected our next president. In fact, onlookers outside of her campaign office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania were absolutely horrified once they spotted what was inside the building, and it undoubtedly proves Hillary and her supporters are as desperate as they come.

As the presidential hopefuls near the end of their campaigns, the reality that one of the two will come out the loser is setting in. However, Hillary Clinton and her campaign recently proved that nothing is off the table when it comes to “winning.”

They will do anything that is necessary, including breaking the law, to ensure she lands herself back in our White House. In fact, when onlookers spotted illegal aliens inside her campaign office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it only proved how desperate she is for votes – as she let them charge their ankle monitors inside.

The horrified onlookers did the only thing they could think of doing – they snapped a photo. Clearly, no one would believe that the Clinton campaign office would actually allow illegal aliens on the premises, much less allow them to use their resources to charge up their ankle monitors.

The group of illegals is known as “Buffalo 25,” and they were not only seen charging their ankle monitors but sought asylum and even brought their sleeping bags. However, even the Clinton campaign staff eventually grew tired of their antics and called the police for their removal. Perhaps they got a little bit too comfortable and showed exactly how many illegal immigrants act – like actual ”…

Real Unemployment Rate: 9.5% – CNS

Although much of the major media are reporting the national unemployment rate for October as 4.9%, the “real unemployment rate,” as determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and which includes part-time workers and those marginally attached to the work force, is 9.5%.

In other words, the real unemployment rate in the United States for October is nearly double the 4.5% rate reported by most media.

The “total unemployed” rate, or U6 number, is defined by the BLS as, “total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of all civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers,” seasonally adjusted, workers 16 years old and over.

The Gallup survey group explains the incomplete nature of the “national unemployment rate.”

“Widely reported unemployment metrics in the U.S. do not accurately represent the reality of joblessness in America,” says Gallup. “For example, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) does not count a person who desires work as unemployed if he or she is not working and has stopped looking for work over the past four weeks. Similarly, the BLS does not count someone as unemployed if he or she is, for instance, an out-of-work engineer, construction worker or retail manager who performs a minimum of one hour of work a week and receives at least $20 in compensation.”

For that reason, the BLS also provides the U6 rate, or total unemployed rate. That rate was 9.5% in October and 9.7% in September. It was 9.6% in June…

Prince began by saying he had no problem believing reports that the FBI was highly confident multiple foreign agencies hacked Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

“I mean, it’s not like the foreign intelligence agencies leave a thank-you note after they’ve hacked and stolen your data,” Prince said to SiriusXM host Alex Marlow.

They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

Obamanomics: Multiple Jobholders Hits 21st Century High, As Full-Time Jobs Tumble – Zero Hedge

While today’s headline jobs print was somewhat disappointing, with the Establishment Survey missing the expected print of 173K, rising by 161K, it was offset by upward revisions to previous months. But while the quantitative headline aspect is open to interpretation, the qualitative component of the October jobs print was – just like in the case of September – all too clear: it was ugly, again.

Recall that in September, the Household Survey revealed that the number of part-time workers soared by 430,000 as full-time workers actually declined by 5,000. The trend continued in October, when another 103,000 full-time jobs were lost, which was offset by a 90,000 increase in part-time jobs.

FBI Agents: Hillary Is The “Antichrist Personified” – Zero Hedge

Having exposed the mutinous divide between The FBI and The Department of Justice, it appears the drip-drip-drip leaky bucket has turned into a spigot as The Guardian cites several seriously pissed off agents describe the FBI as “Trumplandia.”

As The Hill details, in a report published Thursday, multiple sources within the FBI say that deep antipathy toward Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and anger that FBI Director James Comey did not bring charges against her this summer have motivated leaks that could damage her presidential campaign.

One agent told The Guardian that many at the bureau view Clinton as the “antichrist” and are supportive of Trump.

The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel,” and that “the reason why they’re leaking is they’re pro-Trump.”

“The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.

But another FBI source disputed the level of support Trump has within the bureau, according to The Guardian.

“There are lots of people who don’t think Trump is qualified, but also believe Clinton is corrupt,” the source said. “What you hear a lot is that it’s a bad choice, between an incompetent and a corrupt politician.”

Voter Fraud Update: California Man Finds Dozens Of Ballots Stacked Outside Home – Fox News

Jerry Mosna was gardening outside his San Pedro, Calif., home Saturday when he noticed something odd: Two stacks of 2016 ballots on his mailbox.

The 83 ballots, each unused, were addressed to different people, all supposedly living in his elderly neighbor’s two-bedroom apartment.

“I think this is spooky,” Mosna said. “All the different names, none we recognize, all at one address.”

His wife, Madalena Mosna, noted their 89-year-old neighbor lives by herself, and, “Eighty people can’t fit in that apartment.”

They took the ballots to the Los Angeles Police Department, but were directed to the post office. They felt little comfort there would be an investigation, and called another neighbor, John Cracchiolo – who contacted the Los Angeles County Registrar’s office.

A spokeswoman for the Registrar said the office will investigate. Both Cracchiolo and Jerry Mosna told FoxNews.com they think they stumbled upon a case of fraud.

NYPD Source: Weiner Laptop Has Enough Evidence To Put Hillary Away For Life – New American

Sex crimes with children, child exploitation, money laundering, perjury, and pay to play, reads the partial list of crimes that, claim New York City Police Department sources, could “put Hillary and her crew away for life.”

Shocking evidence of such criminality has been found on ex-congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer, claim the sources, which was seized from him by NYC officials investigating his allegedly having sent sexually explicit texts to a 15-year-old girl. Moreover, Hillary Clinton’s “crew” supposedly includes not just close aide and confidante Huma Abedin and her husband, Weiner, but other aides and insiders – and even members of Congress. According to True Pundit:

NYPD sources said these new emails include evidence linking Clinton herself and associates to:

• Money laundering
• Child exploitation
• Sex crimes with minors (children)
• Perjury
• Pay to play through Clinton Foundation
• Obstruction of justice
• Other felony crimes

NYPD detectives and a [sic] NYPD Chief, the department’s highest rank under Commissioner, said openly that if the FBI and Justice Department fail to garner timely indictments against Clinton and co- conspirators, NYPD will go public with the damaging emails now in the hands of FBI Director James Comey and many FBI field offices.

“What’s in the emails is staggering and as a father, it turned my stomach,” the NYPD Chief said. “There is not going to be any Houdini-like escape from what we found…

FBI Agents Working To Expose Top DOJ Officials – Daily Caller

Agents within the Federal Bureau of Investigation want to take down the personnel at the top of the Justice Department, according to a former D.C. based U.S. Justice attorney.

UK Court Rules Parliament Must Vote On Brexit – Bloomberg

The U.K. must hold a vote in Parliament before starting the two-year countdown to Brexit, a panel of London judges decided, setting up a constitutional confrontation at the country’s Supreme Court next month.

Triggering the departure from the European Union would “inevitably” change domestic law without Parliament’s approval, Judge John Thomas said Thursday, delivering a decision that is a setback for Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to unilaterally start the process by the end of March by invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

The ruling sent immediate shockwaves through London’s financial and political enclaves. The pound – the worst-performing major currency in 2016 – rose to a three-week high against the dollar and lawmakers on both sides of the debate grappled over whether the decision would force May to alter her plans. The government said it can still press ahead with the March timetable even if it loses an appeal.

“Politically speaking, this is a difficult moment for the government,” said Nikos Skoutaris, a lecturer in EU law at the University of East Anglia. “It is a strong reminder, however, that the government should respect the constitutional rules during the Brexit process. At the end of the day, Brexit would lead to a fundamental change in the British constitutional order.”

The government said it will appeal, and the Supreme Court has already set aside time for a hearing between Dec. 5 to Dec. 8. A court spokesman said it is likely all 11 judges would participate in the review for the first time in the tribunal’s seven-year history…

For the second time in less than a month Politico chief political correspondent Glenn Thrush has been caught sending stories to Hillary Clinton staffers for approval.

It is included in Podesta’s emails as Palmieri shared the email with several other Clinton staffers, including campaign manager Robby Mook and Podesta.

Pathological Liar Obama Was Notified Six Different Times When Hillary Changed Email Address – Gateway Pundit

In March Barack Obama told CBS News he heard about Hillary Clinton’s private emails through news reports.

Obama lied.

FBI records released in September revealed Barack Obama emailed Hillary Clinton often using a pseudonym.

And then there’s this…

Catherine Herridge on FOX News reported this morning that the Obama White House was notified six different times when Hillary Clinton changed her email address.

Hillary’s assistant Huma Abedin disclosed this information during FBI testimony.

Catherine Herridge: One of the key things we’ve learned in the FBI interviews known as 302s came from Clinton aide Huma Abedin. She told the FBI investigators that every time Hillary Clinton’s personal address changed they would update the White House so the president could continue receiving Hillary Clinton’s emails on his high security devices including his Blackberry.

Bret Baier: Barring ‘Obstruction’, Indictment Almost Certain In FBI Investigation – Daily Caller

Citing sources at the FBI, Fox News anchor Bret Baier said the FBI’s renewed investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server will almost certainly end in an indictment, unless some sort of “obstruction” arises.

Baier made the claim Wednesday night during a broadcast of “On the Record” with Brit Hume. He said that a “lot of evidence” had been recovered from Anthony Wiener’s laptop, and made an eventual indictment appear very likely, even if it came months after the election.

“I pressed, again and again, on this very issue,” Baier told Hume. “These sources said, yes, the investigations will continues [sic], there’s a lot of evidence, and barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they’ll continue to, likely, an indictment.”…

I’ll hand things over to Fox News anchor Bret Baier and let him deliver one bombshell after another over two clips, the first from Special Report, then an On the Record follow-up – during which the prospect of future indictments is floated, and the hacking details are revealed (confirming what other top officials had long suspected). Baier’s information comes via a pair of FBI sources with “intimate knowledge” of the bureau’s concurrent, ongoing criminal investigations into both Hillary Clinton’s national security-compromising email scheme and the Clinton family foundation. Wow:

Real Clear Politics has a strong summary of the key revelations from Baier’s two well-placed sources. Any one of them would be significant, if taken in isolation. Considered together, this is very serious stuff – and some of it goes directly to the heart of the questions raised in the original post below:

(1) The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far and has been going on for more than a year.

2) The laptops of Clinton aides Cherryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have not been destroyed, and agents are currently combing through them. The investigation has interviewed several people twice, and plans to interview some for a third time.

(3) Agents have found emails believed to have originated on Hillary Clinton’s secret server on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. They say the emails are not duplicates and could potentially be classified in nature…

Hillary’s Eye Problems Return During Vegas Speech – American Mirror

On multiple occasions, Clinton’s eyes did not appear to be in sync with one another.

Despite getting major coverage on The Drudge Report, no mainstream news outlet has covered the apparent issue with Clinton’s eyes.

But the several instances over the last few weeks, and as recently as last Friday, have been enough for doctors to publicly call on Clinton to undergo a full medical exam and release the results.

“My rational self would say that they could have defused all this a long time ago by releasing her medical records and having her undergo the same type of neurologic exam that every high school football player in America who ‘gets his bell rung’ on Friday night must undergo before he can suit up for the game next Friday,” Dr. John R.

Hillary Failed To Disclose 400,000 In Gifts To Bill, Even Though She Was Obligated To Do So As Secretary Of State – Daily Mail

Hillary Clinton did not disclose ‘expensive gifts,’ free vacations, and complimentary private jet travel her family received from business interests while she was at the State Department, according to leaked emails and federal disclosure records reviewed by the DailyMail.com

Long-time Clinton aide Doug Band claimed in a confidential 2011 memo published by Wikileaks this week that he helped obtain free vacations and personal travel for Bill Clinton and his family as part of his duties.

During Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, she did not report any gifts or travel reimbursements for herself or her spouse in her financial disclosure filings.

‘In support of the President’s for-profit activity, we also have solicited and obtained, as appropriate, in-kind services for the President and his family – for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like,’ wrote Band in the Nov. 16, 2011 memo to attorneys conducting an internal review of the Clinton Foundation…

FBI Sued By Judicial Watch For Information On AG Lynch’s Meeting With Bill Clinton – Law Newz

They want 1) All the interview summaries on the case, called “FD-302” forms; 2) all communications FBI employees, agents, and representatives made about the investigation; and 3) records on Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s June 27 meeting with Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton.

You’ll probably remember that the AG and the former president crossed paths at a Phoenix, Arizona airport. They said it was an accidental meeting, and that they only made small talk. They insisted that they said nothing about the FBI’s then-ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s purported mishandling of official emails. But this got a lot of bad press to say the least. Critics said it showed that the Clinton’s were exerting undue influence on the feds.

“There is significant controversy about whether the FBI and Obama Justice Department investigation gave Clinton and other witnesses and potential targets preferential treatment,” Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, wrote in a statement obtained by Law Newz.

2006 Audio Emerges Of Hillary Clinton Proposing Rigging Palestine Election – Observer

On September 5, 2006, Eli Chomsky was an editor and staff writer for the Jewish Press, and Hillary Clinton was running for a shoo-in re-election as a U.S. senator. Her trip making the rounds of editorial boards brought her to Brooklyn to meet the editorial board of the Jewish Press.

The tape was never released and has only been heard by the small handful of Jewish Press staffers in the room. According to Chomsky, his old-school audiocassette is the only existent copy and no one has heard it since 2006, until today when he played it for the Observer.

The tape is 45 minutes and contains much that is no longer relevant, such as analysis of the re-election battle that Sen. Joe Lieberman was then facing in Connecticut. But a seemingly throwaway remark about elections in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority has taken on new relevance amid persistent accusations in the presidential campaign by Clinton’s Republican opponent Donald Trump that the current election is “rigged.”

Speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), Clinton weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats).

“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”…

Oregon Militia Leaders Acquitted In Wildlife Refuge Standoff – New York Post

Armed militants who took over a federal building and wildlife refuge in Oregon in a deadly, 41-day standoff with authorities were acquitted of all charges Thursday.

The seven anti-government militia members, led by brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, were found not guilty of conspiracy and weapons charges in the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

An eighth occupier, LaVoy Finicum, was fatally shot by police during the standoff.

After the verdict, court officers had to tackle, tase and hold Ammon defense lawyer Marcus Mumford when he repeatedly yelled that his client must be released immediately. Mumford himself was freed hours later.

The judge said Ammon could not be released because he still faces charges in Nevada stemming from an armed standoff with the feds at dad Cliven Bundy’s ranch two years ago.

An attorney for another defendant was shocked.

“It’s stunning. It’s a stunning victory for the defense,” said Robert Salisbury, attorney for defendant Jeff Banta. “I’m speechless.”

The defendants had maintained that the occupation was an act of civil disobedience inspired by religion and that the weapons they brought onto federal grounds were vital for protection against the government.

“This is a tremendous victory for rural America,” defendant Neil Wampler said outside court…

FBI Reopens Hillary Email Investigation – Washington Times

Mr. Comey said his agents learned of new emails “pertinent” to their probe while working on an unrelated case. He said his agents need to review those messages to see whether they contain classified information and whether they affect his previous decision.

In July, Mr. Comey announced that while he determined Mrs. Clinton did mishandle classified information, she was too inept to know the risks she was running, so he couldn’t prove she did it intentionally – undercutting a criminal case.

After the men gently carry her along the carriage she launches straight into a headstand for her final showpiece.

The granny, dressed in a modest white shirt, black trousers and spectacles, exudes joie de vivre as she fist pumps the air after her headstand.

She then joins the men in a little dance before ducking underneath them to get back to her seat.

* “Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news… we need to clean this up – he has emails from her – they do not say state.gov”

* “How is that not classified?” Huma Abedin to FBI when shown email between Clinton & Obama using his pseudonym. Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”

* I can’t state how huge this is, it’s a cover up involving the President of the United States. There are a lot of emails implying this, but this email states it very clearly so anyone can understand. The email proves obstruction of justice and shows how they lied to the FBI, and likely perjury of Congress. This at the very least proves intent by her Chief of Staff.

* Obama used executive privilege on their correspondence. Cheryl Mills (who was given immunity) states they need to “clean up” the Clinton/Obama emails because they lacked state.gov.

* Additionally, Obama on video publicly denied knowing about the server. He also claimed on video that he learned about the secret server through the news like everyone else. The corruption goes all the way to the top! Obama is lying to the American public…

Obama Threatens To Veto Military Bill Because It Protects Religious Groups – CNS

On D-Day, FDR famously asked a country of many faiths to pray that God protect our troops as they “struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization” against tyranny. Given our military’s tradition of defending religious liberty from attack, it is disappointing to see President Barack Obama threaten to veto the military’s main authorization bill if it contains protections for religious freedom.

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is an annual bill that sets policies and budgets for our nation’s fighting forces and is currently being negotiated by both houses of Congress in conference before a final vote. Included in the House-version of the National Defense Authorization Act is an amendment offered by Rep. Steve Russell, R-Okla., that applies decades-old religious exemptions from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) to federal grants and contracts. The Russell Amendment is sound policy that will prevent the administration from stripping contracts and grants from faith-based social service providers whose internal staffing policies reflect their faith.

Jewish day schools and Catholic adoption centers, for example, are not liable under Title VII for being authentically Jewish or Catholic, and their staffing policies shouldn’t disqualify them from federal grants and contracts either.

But Obama’s veto threat is actually the strongest proof of why the Russell Amendment is needed…

Corrupt Obama AG ‘Pleads Fifth’ On Secret Iran Ransom Payments – Washington Free Beacon

The Clintons: Grifters-In-Chief – Kimberley Strassel

In an election season that has been full of surprises, let’s hope the electorate understands that there is at least one thing of which it can be certain: A Hillary Clinton presidency will be built, from the ground up, on self-dealing, crony favors, and an utter disregard for the law.

This isn’t a guess. It is spelled out, in black and white, in the latest bombshell revelation from WikiLeaks. It comes in the form of a memo written in 2011 by longtime Clinton errand boy Doug Band, who for years worked simultaneously at the Clinton Foundation and at the head of his lucrative consulting business, Teneo.

It is astonishingly detailed proof that the Clintons do not draw any lines between their “charitable” work, their political activity, their government jobs or (and most important) their personal enrichment. Every other American is expected to keep these pursuits separate, as required by tax law, anticorruption law and campaign-finance law. For the Clintons, it is all one and the same – the rules be damned.

The memo came near the end of a 2011 review by law firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett into Clinton Foundation practices. Chelsea Clinton had grown concerned about the audacious mixing of public and private, and the review was designed to ensure that the foundation didn’t lose its charitable tax status. Mr. Band, Teneo boss and epicenter of what he calls “ Bill Clinton, Inc.,” clearly felt under assault and was eager to brag up the ways in which his business had concurrently benefited the foundation, Clinton political causes and the Clinton bank account. The memoed result is a remarkably candid look at the sleazy inner workings of the Clinton grifters-in-chief…

Hillary Tries To Hack Assange And Erase His Data, Backfires Instantly – Mad World News

American Tax Dollars Going To Sports Programs For “Refugees” – Daily Caller

Refugees are desperately in need of American sports programs. At least, that’s what a federal officials intend to spend taxpayer money on.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (OOR) informed governors’ offices of its intent to provide sports programs, mental health counseling and job placement services for refugees during a conference call Thursday.

On the quarterly call on refugee issues, participants were told the sports programs are necessary to help them acclimate to American culture. The cost of the sports programs has not yet been disclosed.

The conference call was held in conjunction with the Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the Department of Homeland Security’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

According to one of the call’s participants, the focus remained largely on what benefits refugees will receive – not the vetting process prior to even entering the United States.

“We were eager for assurances that these refugees are being thoroughly vetted and steps are being taken to prevent another San Bernardino. Let’s just say that call did not make us feel better,” the participant told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “What we took from it was, ‘We might have no idea who these people are, but don’t worry, let’s talk about the sports programs we have for them.’ Unreal, but at this point, we expect nothing less.”…

Leaked Memo Exposes Shady Dealings Between Clinton Foundation Donors And Bill’s “For-Profit” Activities – Zero Hedge

We have written frequently in recent weeks about a feud that erupted between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band back in 2011 after Chelsea raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest between Band’s firm, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation and the State Department (see here, here, here and here).

The feud ultimately resulted in Band being forced to draft a memo spelling out, in vivid detail, the many entangled relationships between himself, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation and the State Department. Fortunately, today’s Wikileaks dump included that memo which reveals, for the first time, the precise financial flows between the Clinton Foundation, Band’s firm Teneo Consulting, and the Clinton family’s private business endeavors.

The memo starts with a brief background on Teneo, which was created in June 2011, shortly after Declan Kelly resigned from his position as “United States Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland,” a position to which he was appointed by Secretary Clinton.

In June 2009, DK Consulting was founded by Declan Kelley. Mr. Kelly served as COO of FTI Consulting until June 2009, when he stepped down and established DK Consulting. At that time, he also became the United States Economic Envoy to Northern Ireland. Pursuant to the terms of his exit agreement with FTI and consistent with the ethics agreement of his uncompensated special government employee appointment at the State Department, Mr. Kelly retained and continued to provide services to three paying clients (Coke, Dow, and UBS) and one pro bono client (Allstate). In late 2009, Declan retained me as a consultant to DK Consulting to help support the needs of these clients…

As Secretary Of State Hillary Proclaimed “Our Goal Is To Help Strengthen Russia” – Fox News
.

.
Hillary Clinton has mocked Donald Trump for saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin is a strong leader. But in a newly discovered interview with Vladimir Pozner of Russia’s First Channel Television on March 19, 2010, given while she was Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton says, “our goal is to help strengthen Russia”.

“One of the fears that I hear from Russians is that somehow the United States wants Russia to be weak. That could not be farther from the truth. Our goal is to help strengthen Russia. We see Russia with the strong culture, with the incredible intellectual capital that Russia has, as a leader in the 21st century. And we sometimes feel like we believe more in your future than sometimes Russians do,” Hillary Clinton says.

It’s a stunning admission from Hillary: she believes more in Russia’s future than Russians do?…

Five “Refugees” Gang-Rape Women During Calais Camp Clearance – Breitbart

A young woman was gang-raped by five men amid the destruction of the Calais Jungle camp, French prosecutors have revealed.

The Ethiopian was attacked on Tuesday morning as volunteers and police were clearing the Calais slum in preparation for the attempt to resettle its inhabitants in asylum centres across France.

The victim has been examined by a forensic doctor but had difficulty communicating the details of the attack, as she only speaks an Ethiopian dialect. A source told reporters that the woman will stay in Calais until a translator can be found.

Thompson Reuters recently reported that female migrants, who had been moved from Calais to a makeshift migrant camp in the French countryside, feared the clearing of the Jungle would lead to an increase in the number of rapes and endanger women still living in the camp.

“There are so many people [in Calais], so many boys. When you walk down the road they will talk to you and we hear they are raping some girls,” an Ethiopian woman told journalists.

“Because of that we don’t think [Calais] is safe for us. Here, there is no problem.”

The revelation of the latest attack came as prosecutors in France reported that three suspects involved in the knifepoint rape of an Afghan interpreter and filmmaker, exactly a week before, could have been people smugglers.

DNA samples were taken from the victim but the attackers, believed to be Afghan, may now have escaped to Paris along with hundreds of others from the camp who don’t want to receive refugee status and be moved to rural areas…

House Slaps U.S. Government With Lawsuit Against Obamacare Bailout Of Insurance Companies – Daily Caller

The U.S. House of Representatives filed an amicus brief against the federal government Thursday, targeting insurance companies who want Obamacare bailouts.

It’s difficult, almost impossible, to imagine a situation in which Obamacare could get any worse: 16 healthcare co-ops went belly-up, the Tennessee Health Commissioner is saying the state’s Obamacare exchanges are “very near collapse,” and analysts cannot fathom a positive future for the system in either the short or long-term.

The House amicus brief, in addition to explaining why the insurance companies should be barred from receiving bailout funds, also discusses why the Obama administration’s move to settle other cases with billions of taxpayer dollars is both unlawful and unconstitutional.

“The law is clear that insurance companies operating on the health exchanges established pursuant to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have no right to government handouts in excess of incoming funds under the Act’s risk corridors program. This is because the program was intended to be budget-neutral and self-funding – i.e., outgoing payments would be covered by incoming payments – and Congress has confirmed this intent, not once but twice, through annual appropriations legislation,” the brief reads.

Chief among the complaints of House members, is the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS is “apparently bent on paying insurers despite the absence of any legal obligation to do so. Allegedly in light of a non-existent ‘litigation risk,’ HHS recently took the extraordinary step of urging insurers to enter into settlement agreements with the United States in order to receive payment on their meritless claims.”…

Judge Strikes Down Sandy Hook Suit Against AR-15 Manufacturer – Breitbart
.

.
Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis has struck down the lawsuit that Sandy Hook Elementary families had brought against Remington Arms.

Remington is the parent company of Bushmaster, the brand of AR-15 that Adam Lanza stole then used to killed 26 innocents at the school.

According to a Friday report from CBS New York, Bellis cited the 2005 Lawful Protection of Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which protects gun manufacturers from being sued in instances where the gun in question was legally made and sold. The AR-15 used in the Sandy Hook attack was legally made and was sold and registered to Nancy Lanza, Adam’s mother. He stole that gun from her, then shot and killed her before going to the school.

The suit against Remington was filed in October 2014. BBC News reported that court documents in the filing said, “There is one tragically predictable civilian activity in which the AR-15 reigns supreme: mass shootings…

Brain Implant Allows Man To Feel Touch On Robotic Hand – Spectrum

At the end of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Luke Skywalker feels when a needle pricks his newly-installed bionic hand. Researchers report today in the journal Science Translational Medicine that they can do something similar: stimulating regions of a human test subject’s brain with electrodes can recreate the perception of touch in a robotic hand.

This year, about 280,000 people in the United States alone are living with a spinal cord injury, according to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center. Depending on the severity, damaged nerve connections lead to effects ranging from a partial loss of feeling to complete loss of motion in different limbs.

“If you lose that sense of touch, you have a really difficult time” grabbing, holding, and manipulating different objects, says Richard Gaunt, a neuroengineer at the University of Pittsburgh who works on touch feedback for prosthetics. To safely interact with other human beings and handle delicate objects such as eggs, humans need more than just control–they need to be able to modify control based on touch feedback.

In the May 2016 issue of IEEE Spectrum Dustin Tyler, head of the Functional Neural Interface Lab at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, described technology that allows amputees to feel a robotic arm prosthesis. That technique relied on electrically stimulating peripheral nerves using electrodes implanted into the user’s arm. The system improved the delicate motion capabilities in a robotic arm. But the technology doesn’t work if the connection between limbs and brain is absent, such as with spinal cord injuries, Gaunt says…

Former U.S. Attorney: Agents See FBI Chief Comey As A ‘Dirty Cop’ – American Spectator
.

.
James Comey presides over an FBI in revolt over his leadership, a former U.S. attorney tells The American Spectator, and pursues “paranoid, delusional, and vindictive” measures to prevent negative information leaking out to the public.

“I know that inside the FBI there is a revolt,” Joseph diGenova tells The American Spectator. “There is a revolt against the director. The people inside the bureau believe the director is a dirty cop. They believe that he threw the [Hillary Clinton email] case. They do not know what he was promised in return. But the people inside the bureau who were involved in the case and who knew about the case are talking to former FBI people expressing their disgust at the conduct of the director.”

The loss of faith in the bureau chief stems in part from a dishonest rendering of the decision not to indict Mrs. Clinton as unanimous rather than unilateral and in part from the bureau’s decision to destroy evidence in the case and grant blanket immunity to Clinton underlings for no possible prosecutorial purpose…

Hillary’s Email Cover-Up Squad Tried To Shield Co-conspirator Obama – USA Politics Now

Do you recall when Barack Obama said he didn’t know about then-SecState Hillary Clinton’s private email server?

The media probably doesn’t.

We later learned that 44 used a pseudonym when communicating with Clinton.

Now, another WikiLeaks reveal shows an attempt by Hillary’s team to shield Obama the day after her emails were subpoenaed.

Putin Ally Warns Of Nuclear War If Hillary Is Elected President – New York Daily News

An ultra-nationalist Putin-ally says Americans must vote for Donald Trump this November – since voting for Hillary Clinton would set off “Hiroshimas and Nagasakis everywhere.”

Vladimir Zhirinovsky asserted Trump is the only candidate who could soothe relations between Moscow and Washington, spurring further suspicion about what financial ties the billionaire mogul might have in the eastern superpower.

“Relations between Russia and the United States can’t get any worse,” Zhirinovsky told Reuters during an interview in Moscow. “Americans voting for a president on Nov. 8 must realize that they are voting for peace on Planet Earth if they vote for Trump. But if they vote for Hillary it’s war. It will be a short movie.”

The boisterous lawmaker – who regularly lauds Trump for praising Putin over President Obama – did not expand on his fear-mongering claims…

Wall Street Journal Finally Lashes Out: “The Press Is Burying Hillary Clinton’s Sins” – Zero Hedge

Even the Wall Street Journal is now fed up with the biased media coverage of the 2016 Presidential election as revealed by a scathing article written by Kimberly Strassel, a member of their editorial board. As Strassel points out, it’s almost impossible to turn on the TV without hearing about Trump’s “lewd” comments while coverage of Hillary “uniformly ignores the flurry of bombshells” inherent in the various WikiLeaks, FOIA releases and FBI interviews.

If average voters turned on the TV for five minutes this week, chances are they know that Donald Trump made lewd remarks a decade ago and now stands accused of groping women.

But even if average voters had the TV on 24/7, they still probably haven’t heard the news about Hillary Clinton: That the nation now has proof of pretty much everything she has been accused of.

It comes from hacked emails dumped by WikiLeaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, and accounts from FBI insiders. The media has almost uniformly ignored the flurry of bombshells, preferring to devote its front pages to the Trump story. So let’s review what amounts to a devastating case against a Clinton presidency.

Of course, the list of Hillary scandals is becoming way to long to remember though one of the biggest has been her establishment of the now infamous private email server and the subsequent intentional destruction of federal records despite the existence of a Congressional subpoena.

Start with a June 2015 email to Clinton staffers from Erika Rottenberg, the former general counsel of LinkedIn. Ms. Rottenberg wrote that none of the attorneys in her circle of friends “can understand how it was viewed as ok/secure/appropriate to use a private server for secure documents AND why further Hillary took it upon herself to review them and delete documents.”…

Gennifer Flowers: Bill Clinton Paid $200 For Me To Abort His Baby – Breitbart

In a rare exclusive interview, Gennifer Flowers, who says she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, opened up about what she described as the experience of having an abortion after she says she found out she was pregnant with Clinton’s child.

Flowers stated that Clinton personally paid $200 for the abortion in 1977, and she revealed that she was made aware that Hillary Clinton knew that same year about the alleged affair, which Flowers says continued another eleven years or so.

Flowers described the abortion as “psychologically a horrible thing to go through,” and “not only physically painful but it was very psychologically painful.”

Flowers was speaking in an hour-long emotional interview set to air Sunday on this reporter’s talk radio program, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM…

Judge Rips Off Robe, Tackles Defiant Stalker Resisting Courtroom Arrest – American Mirror

Jackson County Circuit Court Judge John McBain doesn’t take any lip from criminals in his courtroom.

Michigander Jacob Larson, in McBain’s courtroom for repeatedly stalking a former high school classmate, learned that lesson the hard way when McBain tossed off his robe and tackled him for mouthing off and resisting arrest in December, Mlive.com reports.

In recently released courtroom footage, McBain grew increasingly agitated by Larson throughout the hearing as the man attempted to blame his ridiculous behavior on his victim, whom he alleged McBain was “buddy-buddy” with. McBain acknowledged that his daughter is acquaintances with the victim, but stressed that he did not personally know the victim or Larson.

The woman victim told the court Larson was “obsessed” with her for some reason and sent her 22 Facebook messages between August, when McBain granted a personal protection order, and the Dec. 2 hearing.

“He’s not leaving me alone,” the 22-year-old told the judge.

McBain noted that Larson put things on the woman’s car, visited her at work, sat and waited at the woman’s car and engaged in other creepy antics.

“It’s Fatal Attraction stuff I warned you about last time,” McBain said. “I told you to just leave her alone.”

“I want her to tell me to leave her alone,” Larson shot back.

“You know what, I told you to leave her alone,” McBain replied. “And apparently that didn’t get through loud and clear so today you are going to jail for three days. And the next time you violate it you’re going…”

“You two are buddy-buddy,” Larson said, cutting him off.

That’s when things got ugly.

“You know what, you have a bad attitude. You had a bad attitude the last time… you were even referencing discussions about my own daughter,” McBain said…

Democrat Governor Who Supported Obamacare Now Blasts It As Unaffordable – Zero Hedge

Soaring Obamacare premiums and declining insurer participation rates in exchanges across the country have been a frequent topic of conversation for us (see “Obamacare On “Verge Of Collapse” As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017″ and “Stunning Maps Depict Collapse Of Obamacare “Coverage” In 2017″).

Now, even early proponents of the “Affordable Care Act” are starting to distance themselves from a policy initiative which is, at this point, a complete and obvious failure. According to CBS, Democratic Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton, recently called for changes to the healthcare exchanges in his state saying that “the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable.”

“Ultimately I’m not trying to pass the buck here but the reality is the Affordable Care Act is no longer affordable,” Dayton said.

Dayton says changes to the program are critical, as he stepped away from one of his signature political platforms…

Catholic Bishop Calls Hillary ‘Scheming, Robotic Liar’ – Washington Examiner

Outraged by the anti-Catholic bigotry displayed in leaked Team Clinton emails this week, the powerful Philadelphia bishop blasted both President Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton for their efforts to undermine church teachings.

In his weekly column for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Archbishop Charles Chaput Thursday demanded that Clinton repudiate the emails – then added that he doesn’t expect her to.

Mocking the theme in the emails that Catholics are backward thinking for views on abortion, marriage and other core issues, Chaput wrote, “Of course it would be wonderful for the Clinton campaign to repudiate the content of these ugly WikiLeaks emails. All of us backward-thinking Catholics who actually believe what Scripture and the Church teach would be so very grateful.”

He described Clinton as “a scheming, robotic liar with a lifelong appetite for power and an entourage riddled with anti-Catholic bigots.”

The emails have roiled the Catholic community, especially among conservative church followers and leaders like Chaput.

The email scandal gave Chaput a chance to also blast Obama and his liberal policies that, he said, have done “cultural damage.”

Then, he turned to Clinton in his column, writing:

“But bad can always get worse. I’m thinking, of course, of the contemptuously anti-Catholic emails exchanged among members of the Clinton Democratic presidential campaign team and released this week by WikiLeaks. A sample: Sandy Newman, president of Voices for Progress, emailed John Podesta, now the head of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to ask about whether ‘the bishops opposing contraceptive coverage’ could be the tinder for a revolution…

Bill Clinton’s Penthouse Pet Lover Died In Mysterious Fire That Her Sister Believes Was Started To Cover Up Affair – Daily Mail
.

.
As more and more women line up to tell their stories about sex with Bill Clinton – both consensual and forced – there is one who is unable to relive the details of her alleged affair.

Penthouse Pet Judi Gibbs died in a mysterious house fire in 1986 amid rumors that she had pictures that proved she and the then-Governor of Arkansas had been regular sex partners.

And even now, 30 years after she died alongside her much-older other lover, doubts remain about how and why Gibbs and her long-time beau Bill Puterbaugh met their grizzly deaths.

But now DailyMail.com has pieced together the life and death of Judi Gibbs, telling for the first time how the auburn-haired woman from a pin-prick of an Arkansas town managed to bed the man who went on to be one of the most powerful men in the world.

And the question remains unanswered: Was Judi Gibbs killed because Bill Clinton and his advisers feared the affair was about to become public?

‘I have always been convinced that Bill Clinton was responsible for the fire, but I have no proof,’ Gibbs’ older sister Martha, who still lives in Sims, Arkansas, told DailyMail.com. ‘And what would happen if I had proof – you can’t touch those people.’

At the time of her death, Gibbs was 32 and living with 57-year-old developer Puterbaugh in a large isolated home a quarter-mile drive opposite a tiny airport outside Fordyce, Arkansas.

Their bodies were both found in the huge master bedroom. They died of smoke inhalation.

Puterbaugh’s son, Randy, who followed him into the real estate business, tells a similar story to Martha Gibbs, even though the two have not spoken since the days following the double death…

Twitter Suspends James O’Keefe As He Releases New Hillary Video – Daily Caller

Twitter suspended the account of conservative activist James O’Keefe in the hours before and during his release of a video of a Democratic senatorial candidate saying Hillary Clinton might use executive power on guns.

O’Keefe went undercover to a August fundraiser for Wisconsin Democratic senatorial candidate and former Sen. Russ Feingold in California. O’Keefe asked Feingold what Clinton could do about gun control and Feingold replied, “Well, there might be an executive order.”

Amy Rao, the host of the fundraiser and a Clinton donor, is also featured in the video. Rao told O’Keefe, “Hillary wants to shut it down. If we can get guns away from everyone in this country, she’ll close the loopholes, she’ll get rid of assault weapons, she will get rid of being able to buy you know, unlimited bullets, she’s gonna make all that stop.”

Twelve hours before the release of the video, Twitter suspended O’Keefe’s account and as of Thursday afternoon it remains suspended.

“Economic growth will take off when people in the middle feel more secure again and start spending again,” Clinton said in her speech at General Electric’s Global Leadership Meeting in January, 2014.”

“Giving people income assistance, like the food stamps program, would help the economy because families on food stamps will have more money to spend, Clinton argued. “We need to get back to Henry Ford paying his workers a high wage because he wanted people to buy his cars,” Clinton told the group, referring to Ford’s 1914 decision to double increase wages and bonuses for his employees.”…

CNN’s Jake Tapper On Donna Brazile Leak To Clinton Campaign: ‘Unethical’, ‘Horrifying’ – Breitbart

A WikiLeaks document suggests former adviser to President Bill Clinton and current Democrat National Chairperson Donna Brazile provided a question to Clinton’s aides during the recent Democrat primaries. Now Brazile’s CNN colleague, Jake Tapper, insists Brazile’s actions were “unethical” and “horrifying.”

In a Thursday interview on Washington D.C.’s WMAL radio, Tapper told host Larry O’Connor that the evidence that Brazile leaked debate questions to Hillary’s campaign was a journalistically unethical act.

Tapper told O’Connor that the WikiLeaks news was “very, very troubling,” before noting that Brazile is “a good person.”

The CNN host of The Lead with Jake Tapper went on to express dismay over the leak purportedly emanating from his cable network.

“It’s horrifying. Journalistically it’s horrifying,” Tapper said, “and I’m sure it will have an impact on partnering with this organization in the future and I’m sure it will have an effect on… Donna Brazile is no longer with CNN because she’s with the DNC right now, but I’m sure it will have some impact on Donna Brazile.”

Tapper also assured WMAL that CNN takes this “very, very seriously.”

In closing, the CNN host reiterated, “it’s horrifying and very, very upsetting and I can’t condemn it any more than… I condemn it in no uncertain terms, it’s awful.”

According to the documents released by WikiLeaks, on March 12 – just one day before a Democratic presidential town hall debate between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Hillary Clinton – Brazile allegedly sent an email titled “From time to time I get the questions in advance,” to Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton’s campaign communications director. The email provided a question about the death penalty that she said “worries me about HRC.”…
