    Waterloo Courier ^ | 1/27/2015 | Ed Tibbets
    Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has hired a Democratic staffer in Iowa, as he considers a potential 2016 presidential bid. O'Malley's political action committee hired Jake Oeth as a consultant, beginning in mid-December, the PAC confirmed Tuesday. Oeth was the political director for Bruce Braley's Senate campaign last year. Politico first reported his hiring. O'Malley's PAC also said it has brought on Brad Elkins, who will be based in Washington, D.C. Both have Iowa experience. Elkins was sent by the O'Malley camp to Iowa last year to work for Jack Hatch's unsuccessful gubernatorial campaign. O'Malley, who left office after last...

    Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told FOX News today that White House witnesses including National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor, will come testify before the committee whether they want to or not. “I would suspect that some, and I won’t say who, it would not be fair to Mr. Cummings, I would suspect some will come voluntarily but they’re coming whether it’s voluntarily or not.

    NEW YORK – Documents obtained Monday through a federal court order show State Department officials disseminated the false story that the 2012 Benghazi attack that killed a U.S. ambassador was nothing more than the violent escalation of a demonstration by Muslims against an insulting video, even though they knew it was a coordinated military-style assault. Among the documents obtained by the Washington-based government watchdog Judicial Watch was a memo sent the day after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack to the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia, by the State Department’s Diplomatic Security Command Center titled “Emergency Message to U.S. Citizens: Demonstrations.”...

    No words exist to fully describe the abject wickedness which has consumed Albany, NY as it fails in its sworn duty to protect and honor the public trust! “It is a cesspool unworthy of respect or trust and now stands naked in disgrace,” says NY POST editorial writer Michael Goodwin. (1) The “three-men-in-a-room” scenario of Governor, State Senate Majority Leader and Speaker of the State House has ruled for decades, often in total disregard of legislators and ordinary constituents. But one man and one man alone in that room ruled New York, both state and city. His fiefdom of pay-to-play,...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, testifying in January 2013, before the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said "...what difference at this point does it make?" Clinton was speaking about the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans. Well, Hillary, it does make a difference, as we are now finding out. A report of findings of a Republican led committee accuses Clinton of "...seeking to cover up failures by the State Department that could have contributed to the attack last year that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans." But why was the attack successful? Why was there not adequate security...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) lambasted Hollywood liberals in a rambling speech at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday. The party’s 2008 vice presidential nominee, who said this week she’s “ interested” in a presidential bid, took the stage with to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” feeding off the energy of the crowd as she jumped from conservative topic to topic. Her speech was replete with memories of her own trips to Iowa, but she also focused on one recent controversy — defending criticism over the country’s top-grossing movie, “American Sniper.” Palin detailed how she and her family were...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton holds double-digit leads over potential Republican challengers Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney as the likely Democratic presidential candidate moves closer to entering the race, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds. Although Clinton, Bush and Romney are all longtime politicians and members of political dynasties, registered voters are less likely to count that familiarity against Clinton. That is a good sign for Clinton, a failed 2008 presidential candidate and the focus of Republican criticism that her time has come and gone. Clinton’s potential to make history as the first female U.S. president makes little difference to most...

John Podesta, a senior White House aide, will leave his government job in February for Clinton's campaign, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. "The precise role Mr. Podesta would play in a Clinton campaign is unclear. People familiar with discussions said he likely would be campaign chairman, should she decide to run," The Journal reported. Despite the ambiguity, it is clear from additional reports that Podesta is expected to at least hold a "senior title" in Clinton's...

Before and after images of two neighbouring towns, Baga (160 kilometres from Maiduguri) and Doron Baga (also known as Doro Gowon, 2.5 km from Baga), taken on 2 and 7 January show the devastating effect of the attacks which left over 3,700 structures damaged or completely destroyed. Other nearby towns and villages were also attacked over this period. “These detailed images show devastation of catastrophic proportions in two towns,...

Soon after John Kerry took over as Secretary of State, the U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, Terence P. McCulley, accused the Nigerian government of butchery during a confrontation with Boko Haram terrorists in Baga, a Nigerian town on the shores of Lake Chad, and in May 2013 threatened to withdraw U.S. military aid from the West African nation. Boko Haram militants attacked a Nigerian military outpost in April 2013 outside Baga, killing one soldier. Following the three-day battle human rights activists,...

    While it is somewhat belated, the press and the American government should be congratulated for waking up to the barbarisms performed with disturbing regularity in Nigeria. Following the slaughter of hundreds, including children, the fundamentalist militant group Boko Haram has finally earned front-page status after capturing 300 young girls and threatening to sell them into slavery. Outrage over the group’s actions on social media and in the Western press has forced the American government to pressure Abuja into accepting military, logistical, and intelligence aid. American lawmakers who are normally averse to the profligate use of American military power are advocating...

    Haven't we seen this movie before? Barack Obama has just proved his chasm-wide appeal again by conquering another Republican-red state -- Mississippi -- yet the battle for the Democratic nomination is set to stretch out on to the far horizon. As the comedian Bill Maher says, in a reference to John McCain's age, "It's a bad sign when the Democratic campaign is set to last longer than the Republican nominee." But the looming ending to this story feels flatly familiar -- like a slo-mo remake of Florida in the year 2000.

Do not be manipulated by leftists, use her whole name. If headline space is an issue I recommend: Mrs. Clinton.

    WASHINGTON -- It is the end of the year 2014 and the beginning of 2015. Perhaps it is an appropriate time to think about what we are to be confronted with in the presidential year 2016. Ever since the autumn electoral rout of the Democrats, we have been confronted by news stories of the looming presidential prospects of Hillary Rodham Clinton and hints about the rise of the presidential prospects of Elizabeth Warren. Only rarely is there a news story about the presidential prospects of the Republicans, though I count more than 25 possible Republican candidates. On the Democrats side...

    Dateline: January 23rd, 2015: Washington: Republicans in the House and the Senate do THE slam dunk in the Democrats’ face by passing the Keystone XL Pipeline authorization. Not only does the bill authorize the controversial pipeline, but it also comes in at 11,571,283,475 pages long. “Take that, Pelosi!” Boehner shouts at the Rose Garden ceremony where Obama signs the bill. “Read that before you pass it byotch!”That’s right: Obama agrees to sign the Keystone bill in the Rose Garden because on page 2,351,546,379, buried in a footnote, the bill authorizes construction of the pipeline so long as no actual “pipes”...

    What can be said about a year that hasn’t happened yet? The optimist looks forward with hope, and the pessimist looks forward with realism, but most people are too busy looking at their phones to see anything at all. I fall firmly in the pessimist camp. There’s nowhere to go but up when you expect the worst from a year. As such, let us take a look forward, into the future, and see what awful, annoying, and stupid things 2015 may have in store for us. With Republicans in full control of Congress, President Barack Obama will spend more time...

    Hillary Clinton angrily condemned the bleakest results of Barack Obama’s economy in a recent speech, but didn’t dare say who was responsible for them. “What would Robert Kennedy say about the fact that still, today, more than 16 million children live in poverty in the richest nation on earth,” she said in an address to an elite, well-fed crowd in a Manhattan ballroom at an awards gala to honor the slain Democratic presidential candidate. “What would he say about the fact that such a large portion of economic gains have gone to such a small portion of our population,” she...

    The Washington Post's reporting brought down Richard Nixon. On Sunday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin wondered if it could do the same to President Barack Obama regarding his lawlessness on illegal immigration. Palin, who called for Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News, demanded in a Facebook post that Congress get answers to two questions: "What did the President know and when did he know it?" Palin mentioned that the Washington Post had a blockbuster piece on Saturday about how “top officials at the White House and the State Department had repeatedly been warned of the potential...

    A remarkable report by Anne Barnard of the New York Times this weekend confirms my multiple reports here at PJ Media about the increased alliance between the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra.As Barnard reports: In northern and eastern Syria, where Mr. Assad’s opponents won early victories and once dreamed of building self-government, the nationalist rebel groups calling themselves the Free Syrian Army are forced to operate under the extremists’ umbrellas, to go underground or to flee, according to Syrian insurgents, activists and two top commanders of the American-financed F.S.A. groups. Two weeks ago...

    The Affordable Care Act may become even more of a nightmare with Hillary Clinton in the White House, says Betsy McCaughey, chairwoman of the Committee to Reduce Infectious Deaths and former lieutenant-governor of New York. "Hillary could make it worse," McCaughey said Friday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV, referencing Clinton's attempt to launch a heathcare plan when her husband, Bill Clinton, was president. "Hillarycare back in November 1993, all 1,362 pages of it . . . was far more coercive than Obamacare." For example, said McCaughey, a medical doctor, Clinton's plan was far more rigid than President...

    Carly Fiorina is gearing up to run for president. National Journal reports she already has begun hiring staff. Fiorina has run for office only once, as the Republican challenger to Sen. Barbara Boxer of California in 2010 -- and she lost. Still, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO won prime attention by running and losing. She's on "Meet the Press" all the time. She's still rich and still good-looking. (In 2010, Fiorina and husband Frank claimed a combined net worth of $30 million to $120 million.) Insiders think she's probably running for vice president; if Hillary Clinton is the Dems' nominee, the...

    Abortion activist Hillary Clinton, if she seeks the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, would almost certainly become the party’s nominee. However, 48 percent of Americans already say they would definitely not vote for Hillary for president. A Wall Street Journal report indicates 48 percent of Americans are a definite no when it comes to putting Bill Clinton’s wife in the White House. Unfortunately, 50 percent of Americans say they would be open to the pro-abortion activist leading the country following 8 years of the pro-abortion Obama administration. Here’s more on the poll: A new poll shows 50 percent of...

    It’s been an eventful year, folks. We’ve already recognized Chris Hughes and Sean Eldridge as Couple of the Year for their efforts to destroy the dangerous myth that, in America, massive unearned wealth always translates into success. And be sure to stay tuned as we announce the winners of the Free Beacon’s 2014 Man of the Year awards. Until then, we have no choice but to single out an individual who repeatedly failed to live up to expectations in 2014. The Free Beacon award for Underachiever of the Year goes to: Hillary Clinton (public speaker). Clinton began the year by...

    One of the top possible candidates to lead Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has dropped out of contention. That has left the door open to the presidential of a leading pro-abortion group to become her campaign manager should she decide to run for presidential in 2016.Clinton is a longtime pro-abortion activists, opposing any pro-life limits on abortion and backing taxpayer funding of abortions. That gels with the views of Emily’s List, which opposes even a late-term abortion ban and requires that all of the candidates it endorses support forcing Americans to fund abortions.Now, reports indicate that Emily’s List’s president may run...
