  • State Dept. to Withhold Docs Related to Clinton E-Mail Security Until After Election

    Law Newz ^ | May 5, 2016 | Chris White
    The State Department on Tuesday notified Vice News that it will not release documents responsive to the news outlet’s FOIA requests related to the security of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server until after the November election. According to Vice News reporter Jason Koebler, soon after news broke of Clinton’s use of a private e-mail for State Department business, he filed a FOIA request with the State Department seeking “communications, presentations, and procedures created by the State Department to secure Hillary Clinton’s email from electronic threats.” In his new report released on Thursday, Koebler describes how despite several promises from the State...

    I have been commenting lately on the assumption that the FBI is now actually doing any Investigating. Found the link on Drudge to CNN article. Says Huma and others have been interviewed. It was done very quietly. Now they are ready for Hillary before they wrap up. Of note, they mention the IT guy who was given immunity and his part in the investigation. I hope I did this correctly. Not intending to break any rules.

    The New American ^ | 05 May 2016 | C. Mitchell Shaw
    The United States imports nearly everything. The nation that built a strong economy on manufacturing now exports very little. One new thing that is being exported from the United States is a foreign policy of subversion and perversion. Having nearly wrapped America in the rainbow flag of the homosexual agenda, the Obama administration has now begun the process in Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2013 President Obama appointed James Walter "Wally" Brewster — who is openly homosexual — as U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic. He was not well received. As Nil Nikandrov wrote for the online journal of...

    We have seen our fair share of bad takes this election cycle—we’ve seen the personal essay (ie. “Why the Feminist Vote Is a Vote for Jeb”), the unexpected turn (ie. “You Might Think Hillary Is a Woman—Here’s Why She Isn’t”), the outrage-bait garbage (ie. “A Liberal Case for Donald Trump”) (that one’s real). Late Wednesday evening, the Washington Post published something new. Written as advice to the Clinton campaign, the article, entitled “Hillary Clinton is walking into Donald Trump’s trap,” instructed the female candidate to stop making such a big deal of her gender. It was emasculating, the article argued—someone...

    The migration tsunami that swamped Europe with 1.5 million “refugees” in 2015 is roaring back with a tidal wave that may be double the size of last year’s deluge. In fact, most citizens of the European Union countries appear to be unaware that their unelected and unaccountable rulers at the European Commission, in their own European Economic Forecast report issued last fall, announced precisely that. That is, they projected (with apparent acceptance and approval) that three million refugees/migrants would arrive in Europe in 2016. The warming spring/summer weather along the Mediterranean now means calmer seas are returning, which means many...

    The elites’ refusal to grapple with the reality before their eyes continued long after it was obvious Trump was no passing phenomenon. They resorted to increasingly implausible rationalizations to explain his success. “In nearly every election cycle, there are candidates who lead national polls and sometimes even win states, but don’t come close to winning the nomination,” explained Nate Cohen of the New York Times in December. “It would be tough for Mr. Trump to prevail in a one-on-one contest against a typical mainstream Republican, much in the same way that Mr. Buchanan quickly faltered against Mr. Dole.” Why, since...

    It is no surprise that “lawfare” attacks by the left on traditional American values have ramped up since President Barack Obama took office. What has been surprising, though, is how swiftly many major U.S. corporations have acted to support its radical agenda. Why has this happened? Is it simply a case of corporate cronyism? Or have these companies been drafted into the social justice army against their better judgement?

    Several years ago in a live Q&A session, someone asked John MacArthur if taking the mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation would be an unpardonable sin. His answer, in short, was no. Though there is a stern warning against taking the mark of the Beast in Revelation 14, the sin is not categorically said to be unpardonable. (That would contradict Matthew 12:31.) The point of the severe language in Revelation 14 is to make clear what an utterly reprehensible sin it will be to swear an oath of willful loyalty to Antichrist. Someone posted John MacArthur’s reply to...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen is out with his first potential viral video ad of the 2016 election cycle. Nehlen is a water filtration company executive in Wisconsin who calls himself a tea party sympathizer. He is challenging Ryan in the First Congressional District, prioritizing three key issues: government spending, mass immigration, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Nehlen can gain traction on those issues because of Ryan’s decisions since he’s been at the top of House leadership, responsible in part for crafting a national bipartisan agenda with the Democratic-controlled White House. Nehlen’s candidacy thus far is reminiscent...

Why don’t you come back to Wisconsin and debate me—man-to-man, face-to-face—on the realities of TPP. And if you don’t want to debate me, maybe we can arm wrestle,” says Nehlen with a twinkle in his eye,...

The SSA, which will propose the rule in Thursday's edition of the Federal Register, says it plans to notify disability beneficiaries who might be reported and establish a process for them to appeal their placement in the FBI’s background check system.

    Planned Parenthood has found a new niche that could prove nearly as controversial as providing abortions: helping transgendered people through the sex-change process. In the wake of last summer’s undercover videos that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials selling baby body parts for money – which is illegal – legislators in several states have looked for ways to deny funding to the women’s health giant. While Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing, they have stopped accepting reimbursements for providing fetal parts to researchers. However, the gender reassignment process may enable the organization to make up the lost cash by other...

Obama has said he will continue granting commutations during his final months in office to inmates who meet certain criteria set out by the Justice Department. Since the Obama administration launched its high-profile clemency initiative two years ago, thousands of inmates have applied. More than 9,000 petitions are pending....

Many people believe this move to not grant money makes the legislation mainly symbolic because most illegal immigrants would not practically be able to pay for health premiums on their own, according to Kaiser Health. Covered California staff personnel presented an analysis of the proposed legislation to the organization's board last month and...

The boxes have padding and climate control, and they alert authorities when a baby has been placed inside. Several European and Asian countries have been using them for years, but Indiana is the first state in the U.S. to initiate the project. A key leader behind the effort is Monica Kelsey, whose mother abandoned her...

    “Nobody has ever done a global startup before, have they?” muses Martin Leach, co-president of NextEV, an EV startup that intends to launch an electric supercar later this year and a mainstream vehicle in 2017. Founded in late 2014, NextEV has its design headquarters in Munich, a software hub in San Jose, and most of its engineers in Shanghai. “This time last year we were less than 10 people,” said Leach in an exclusive interview with IEEE Spectrum. “Now we’re over 1000, and by the end of this year, we’ll be over 2500. Probably by the end of 2017, we’ll...

    Governor Snyder signed the Rape Survivor Child Custody Act into law on May 3. The new law helps prevent a rapist from gaining custody of a child. The law was included in a larger package of bills addressing domestic violence that Governor Snyder also signed. Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “Half of women who become pregnant through rape don’t have abortions and most of those women decide to keep their child. Michigan was not doing enough to protect women from their attackers in those circumstances.” Under old state law a parent whose child was conceived through...

    California's public employee unions used their muscle this week to fight back a legislative bid to open their books, killing in committee a bill that would force them to post online how dues are spent -- and a second bill requiring a union vote every two years. "These members want to belong to a union. They want to be represented by a union. They just want to know where their money's at," said bill sponsor Assemblywoman Shannon Grove, a Republican. The two bills went down Wednesday on a party-line vote, after dozens of union members came out against the legislation....

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan, the nation’s highest-ranking elected Republican, said Thursday he was “not ready” to endorse Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. Mr. Ryan, who is also chairman of the Republican National Convention, has repeatedly said he would support his party’s nominee. But he has carved out some terrain to differentiate himself, by insisting that House Republicans write their own policy agenda this year and by giving speeches that at times criticized Mr. Trump’s views. Mr. Ryan said Republicans needed a “standard-bearer” who embodied the party’s standards. “I don’t want to underplay what he accomplished,” Mr. Ryan said...
  • From Nixon to Clinton

    05/05/2016 1:16:46 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 5 replies
    I’ve been saying for months that Donald Trump is the George McGovern of the GOP, the fractious leader who so alienated the elders of his party that they deserted him in droves, handing the election to his opponent. We’re already seeing the signs. Clinton has begun casting her candidacy in recent days as a cry to unify a divided country. After a series of victories last week, which all but ensured she will capture her party’s nomination, Clinton called on Democrats, independents and what she called “thoughtful Republicans” to back her bid.

    The Clinton campaign came out with a new attack ad against Trump that features a number of Republicans trash-talking him. Let’s evaluate it for persuasiveness... On an emotional level, I experienced a wave of pity for Clinton while watching the ad. I mean that literally. Her advisers seem blind to the tools of persuasion. Other people who were blind to Trump’s powers of persuasion include Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Carly Fiorina. None of them will be your next president.
