  • Hillary Clinton’s million little lies

    The New York Post ^ | 11/28/2015 | Michael Walsh
    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the conqueror of Mount Everest — even though she was already 6 years old when he made his famous ascent. On a visit to war-torn Bosnia in 1996, she claimed she and her entourage landed under sniper fire and had to run “with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base” — although videos of her arrival show her waltzing serenely across the tarmac, waving to the crowd. She blamed the 2012 attack on American diplomatic and intelligence-gathering installations in Benghazi on...

    Nearly five weeks after Hillary Rodham Clinton's marathon testimony on the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, several investigations into the deadly assault and Clinton's use of a private email account and server are going full bore — and likely will continue into the presidential election year. Republicans on the House Benghazi panel were traveling to Europe, while Senate investigators continue to probe Clinton's use of a private homebrew email server for business purposes and her decision to delete messages she deemed personal. Clinton served as secretary of state during the Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens,...

    Sharyl Attkisson, the former CBS reporter and independent journalist, has a long history of getting under the government’s skin. In her book Stonewalled, she detailed many of the battles she encountered when attempting to expose the truth in the tradition of the Fourth Estate and how unpopular stories tended to wind up being discounted or silenced. Later, her Nosy Nellie ways attracted the interest of the Department of Justice, though they have thus far failed to file any actual charges against her. This week, Attkisson tells the story of how she finally sought to obtain her own FBI file and...

A few dozen activists carried a coffin and chanted “no more bloodshed” and “16 shots and a cover-up.” McDonald was shot 16 times by officer Jason Van Dyke, who was charged with murder on Tuesday, 13 months after the shooting.

    The current situation in the world can only be described as precarious. ISIS and radical jihadis are wreaking havoc across the globe. Old allies are frustrated with a complete lack of US leadership and old enemies like Russia are on the move. We’ve gone from the days in 1989, where Ronald Reagan was told, “the world is quiet” during his last days in office, to “the world is on fire.” Coupled with this, is the state of the US military, which is reeling from readiness, budget and social issues. Added to the military’s problems is what I call, “the demise...

He tweeted Sunday that he was “looking for a buck” in Vilas County and posted a picture of snow-covered woods. He tweeted again Monday that he was “back at it,” with another picture of snow-dusted trees. Later Monday he tweeted that it was snowing but his view was amazing and included another picture of the woods.

One spokesperson for BAIR (the Bureau on American Islamic Relations) went on Facebook and published a list of local Muslims and their supporters who opposed a law which would have forbidden Sharia Law (or any other religious court) supplanting civil authority. I first saw this reported at a link from TPM. The leader of a group of armed anti-Muslim protesters in Texas posted the addresses of dozens of local...

    WASHINGTON (AP) P_resident Barack Obama is trying to negotiate a legacy-making climate change pact this coming week in Paris with one hand tied behind his back. Congress can't even agree whether global warming is real. Scientists point to the global agreement, years in the making, as the last, best hope for averting the worst effects of global warming. Obama has spent months prodding other countries to make ambitious carbon-cutting pledges to the agreement, which he hopes will become the framework for countries to tackle the climate issue long beyond the end of his presidency in early 2017. But Republicans have...

    Former CIA director Michael Morell said last week that the White House has hampered the intelligence community's ability to attack oil fields and oil trucks controlled by ISIS. Morell said that, "we didn't go after oil wells, actually hitting oil wells that ISIS controls, because we didn't want to do environmental damage, and we didn't want to destroy that infrastructure." He went on to say that there was a pretentious feeling in the war room that bombing ISIS oil targets would indeed cause environmental damage. On November 18th, Colonel Steve Warren said that striking oil trucks owned by ISIS may...

    Think you only need a passport to board an international flight? In 2016, some fliers better have one to fly domestic, which means they had better be paying their taxes. It now looks as though your passport could be cancelled if you owe the IRS. The Real ID Act created a national standard for state-issued IDs. It hits air travel in 2016. Some states initially refused to comply, fearing that the feds would make a national database of citizens. Others cited high administrative costs and a 50% increase in fees for drivers. Most states are OK, but millions in Louisiana,...

    China carried out a sixth flight test of its new high-speed nuclear attack vehicle on Monday designed to defeat U.S. missile defenses or carry out global strikes. The ultra-fast maneuvering strike weapon known as the DF-ZF hypersonic glide vehicle was launched atop a ballistic missile fired from the Wuzhai missile test center in central China’s Shanxi Province, according defense officials. The vehicle separated from its launcher near the edge of the atmosphere and then glided to an impact range several thousand miles away in western China, said officials familiar with details of the test. The DF-ZF flight was tracked by...

    ...the challenge for Hillary Clinton is likely to be much different. Rather than worrying about whether she can hold the lead and run out the clock, the question will become whether or not she can pull off a come-from-behind victory. In all likelihood, the Republican nominee will start off the general election season as the favorite. That perspective may sound crazy to Clinton supporters and many in the D.C. media club. They see the Democratic front-runner as obviously experienced and qualified in contrast to the leading GOP candidates. But fundamentals drive elections more than candidates do. The most important measure...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said Turkey's political leaders had been encouraging the Islamisation of Turkish society, something he said was a problem, Russian agencies quoted him as saying. Speaking a day after Turkey shot down one of Moscow's jets, Putin said: "The problem is not the tragedy we witnessed yesterday," the TASS news agency quoted him as saying. "The problem is much deeper. We observe ... that the current Turkish leadership over a significant number of years has been pursuing a deliberate policy of supporting the Islamisation of their country."(continued)

With anti-immigrant sentiment soaring among Republican presidential candidates, and immigration reform stalled in Congress and the courts, New York advocacy groups, with the support of the Obama administration, are redoubling their efforts in one area they can control: citizenship. They are pushing to convert as many of the country's 8.8 million green card holders as possible into naturalized Americans. The influence of the Latino voting bloc has added impetus to the drive. According to Latino Decisions, a polling and research firm, 80 percent of naturalized Latino citizens voted for...

    In the wake of the terror attacks in Paris, politicians and others are calling for a ban — or at least a delay — on the influx of refugees to the United States. Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush have called on the U.S. to accept only Christian Syrian refugees, not Muslims. Presidential candidate Donald Trump goes one step further, saying he would accept none. Dr. Ahmad Jaber, president of the Arab-American Association of New York and Dawood Mosque, calls such rhetoric unconstitutional. "How dare you say you are not welcoming refugees," Jaber said. "How dare you say...

    A sustained outburst of anger and deep disdain for government that has shaped the Republican race for president and confounded the pundits is not going away. The spirit of insurrection that has powered outsider candidates like Donald Trump to the head of the polls is threatening to close an already narrowing lane for more traditional candidates in the frenzied run-up to the first early voting contests early next year. A Pew Research Center poll published Monday showed that the deepest suspicion of government, though also elevated among the broader electorate, remains in the Republican Party. The intensity of that sentiment...

    Quebec has refused an alleged federal request to suspend its “right-to-die” law, with the province’s justice and health ministers declaring the legislation will go into effect December 10 as planned, according to the Canadian Press. Liberal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould reportedly asked her provincial counterpart, Stephanie Vallee, on Wednesday to hold off implementing the province’s Bill 52 so the federal government can draft its own legislation. But Vallee says that Quebec will move ahead with Bill 52: “We’re staying the course, obviously,” she stated. That leaves pro-life advocates with “our great hope” that Quebec’s Superior Court will intervene and block...

Why? Because Sharpton's core constituents aren't in the workforce; they make their living through welfare, not work.

And he managed to publish his results, “Corporate funding and ideological polarization about climate change,” in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.What do you think his conclusions were? Perhaps that thirty years of failed temperature predictions boosted Americans’ skepticism? Or that the obvious eagerness of politicians to leverage exaggerated fears have left many skittish? Or...

The incident happened on November 5, as 67-year-old Blake Alford was preparing to fly from ATL to Chicago Midway Airport (MDW). In his bag was a Ruger .38 pistol, loaded with a full magazine of seven hollow-point bullets....

    First there was that incident at the Trump rally in Alabama. You know, the one where a protester with, shall we say, some ideas that are not terribly compatible with those of Trump or many of his supporters, showed up. He wound up on the ground, taking a beating and throwing some punches of his own before security booted him from the gathering. And then this week, much of the country learned of news that what has seriously been described as masked men shot five people protesting what they believe to be a questionable police shooting near a Minneapolis police...

"Accordingly, states may not categorically deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees," the letterfrom Wednesday read.

    In the November 16 Presidential Debate, the Democratic candidates argued about the minimum wage. They all favored raising it, with Hillary Clinton arguing for $12 per hour. What she preaches is not what she practices, when running her own campaign. Recently, her lawyers asked the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for permission to use unpaid interns during "the spring, summer, or fall at the Campaign's headquarters office in Brooklyn." The lucky students would receive nothing from the Clinton campaign. However, Clinton wants the college to give the interns college credit. She also wants the college to pay the student $3,000. The...

    Capitol Hill Republicans are aiming to take the air out of President Obama's push for a global climate deal at next week's international summit in Paris, warning they will block vital funding if he tries to circumvent Congress. Obama and other world leaders are charging ahead with the two-week U.N. conference starting Monday, under heightened security in the wake of the Paris terror attacks. At a press conference alongside French President Francois Hollande, Obama cast the climate summit as a global statement of solidarity. "What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one...

    Christian camps being offered as shelter for asylum seekers are told by the authorities to remove all Christian symbols. Due to the large influx of asylum seekers to Norway, UDI (Immigration authorities) has found it necessary to lodge asylum seekers in more places than ordinary reception centres. The Norwegian Missionary Society (NMS), operates several Christian camp sites, which they offer to rent to UDI. UDI says yes please, but on one condition. All Christian symbols must be removed before the asylum seekers can move in, says UDI, according to the newspaper Dagen. - We want the accommodation offered to be...

    Think Progress's Esther Lee is beaming with glee over President Obama's executive actions over illegal immigrants because of the huge impact it will have on elections in America. In a new "Isn't That Something" video, Lee states with a smile: Rapid demographic changes are providing voters of color with great potential to influence future elections. "In 2016," she adds, "1.5 million of these citizen relatives will be eligible to vote." Barely able to contain her excitement, she continues: "By 2020, that number jumps to 2.25 million, as more and more children reach voting age." Lee concludes: And eligible voters with...

    Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is challenging Republican leaders in Congress to officially stop taxpayer dollars from being used to bail out Obamacare. “If we don’t make this happen, then the American people have every right to be angry at the Republican leadership because this should be among our highest highest priorities at the end of this year,” the presidential contender says in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News. For years, Rubio has pressed leaders in his party to repeal the “risk corridor” provisions in Obamacare that would allow the federal government to effectively bail out insurance company losses from...

    D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier is an outspoken proponent of gun control (in a district which already has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation). So, when asked by 60 Minutes how people should respond to being near an active gunman, Lanier's response was bemusing as The Washington Times reports, saying that the "best option for saving lives before police can get there” would be for citizens to try to subdue, or even kill, the gunman.
