    A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his outrage at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protesters. The officer also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to allow for the groups to ignite into exactly what happened. “We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first. We weren’t even allowed to...

    WASHINGTON — In the first 48 hours after the deadly Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. diplomatic outposts in Libya, senior Obama administration officials strongly alluded to a terrorist assault and repeatedly declined to link it to an anti-Muslim video that drew protests elsewhere in the region, transcripts of briefings show. The administration’s initial accounts, however, changed dramatically in the following days, according to a review of briefing transcripts and administration statements, with a new narrative emerging Sept. 16 when U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice asserted in a series of TV appearances that the best information available indicated...

  • Poll: Romney Claims Slight Edge in 15 'Battleground' States

    National Journal ^ | July 3, 2012 | Steven Shepard
    President Obama remains marginally ahead of Mitt Romney in a new national CNN/ORC International poll released on Monday, although Romney leads Obama in the 15 states identified by the network as battleground states. Obama leads Romney nationally, 49 percent to 46 percent, with 4 percent of those surveyed saying they would vote for another candidate or neither candidate. That is inside the poll's margin of error, and it is identical to the 49 percent to 46 percent lead Obama had in the previous poll, conducted in late May. It is also similar to the latest Gallup tracking poll, which shows...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | May 18, 2012 | Lawrence Lindsey
    . . . . So why is Congress holding hearings? The answer is the bank's CEO: Jamie Dimon. He is a lifelong Democrat and big contributor to Democratic candidates. This is not a way to get Republicans to like you. Since 2008 Mr. Dimon has also become increasingly critical and vocal about Mr. Obama's mishandling of the economy, and financial regulation in particular. Not a way to get Democrats to like you. . . .

    MInd Over Market ^ | August 21, 2011 | Robert England
    The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was a key architect of a law passed in 1992 that set Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the road to ruin, according to a new book by Robert Stowe England to be released September 30 by Praeger. The book, Black Box Casino, uncovers the myriad factors that led to the financial crisis of 2008, the worst financial implosion of modern times. This story is one of many threads woven into the book's narrative. ACORN was a key leader in clandestine negotiations among housing activists to shape new legislation that would...

  • Is Media Matters breaking the law in its 'war' on Fox News?

    The Examiner ^ | March 27, 2011 | Mark Tapscott
    Media Matters, the George Soros-backed legion of liberal agit-prop shock troops based in the nation's capital, has declared war on Fox News, and in the process quite possibly stepped across the line of legality. David Brock, MM's founder, was quoted Saturday by Politico promising that his organization is mounting "guerrila warfare and sabotage" against Fox News, which he said "is not a news organization. It is the de facto leader of the GOP, and it is long past time that it is treated as such by the media, elected officials and the public.”

    In a way, it has become one of the great, unsolved mysteries. What really caused the financial crisis and panics of 2007 and 2008? That was the assignment for the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, which Congress authorized with great fanfare in 2009. The quest for the answer is not an idle pursuit. In fact, it is a vital, burning question that still commands wide public interest. The reason, of course, is because the aftermath of the financial crisis still is a considerable drag on the financial health and economic vitality of the nation.

    The special inspector general for TARP discusses how and why the program has failed to meet some of its stated goals. . . . . Q: There have been statements since your audit report on the decision to pay 100 percent for the toxic assets in Maiden Lane III to AIG’s counterparties that said that the government and Federal Reserve Bank officials did not have the authority to require less than 100 percent payment. Yet, as you point out, the same officials did not have the authority to compel banks to accept the capital injections, yet they pressured them to...
