    President Obama used his executive powers to attack industries to lower the value of certain companies, allowing his friends in the private sector to swoop in and buy them up at reduced prices, according to Peter Schweizer’s new book Secret Empires: How Our Politicians Hide Corruption and Enrich Their Families and Friends. The book, released Tuesday, said Obama and his administration would deem industries either destructive to the environment or exploitative for the financial and professional gain of his friends, including industries such as coal mining, offshore drilling, cash advance companies, and for-profit colleges.

    The sheriff’s deputy who failed to engage the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School “believed he did a good job” because he called in the location of the massacre and gave a description of the shooter, a top union official said Thursday. School resource officer Scot Peterson, who resigned in disgrace from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, was “distraught” about shooting that killed 17 people — but believed he did his duty, according to the president of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association. “He believed he did a good job calling in the location, setting up the perimeter and...

    One week after a mass shooter Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Broward's top cop on Thursday revealed a stunning series of failures by the sheriff’s department. A school campus cop heard the gunfire, rushed to the building but never went inside – instead waiting outside for another four agonizing minutes as Cruz continued the slaughter.

    (Below are some excerpts from the article.) THE Jackass crew mesmerised and shocked the world with their hilarious and, at times, truly dangerous stunts. The likes of Johnny Knoxville, born Philip John Clapp Jr, became superstars in the process but it led many of them down a path of alcoholism, drug dependency and even suicidal thoughts. The series showcased wild stunts in a world before iPhones, social media and YouTube, airing for two years and eventually morphing into nine films and four spin-offs. But once the cameras stopped rolling, several of the show’s stars were left severely injured and...

    I know the mainstream media is still licking its wounds after President-elect Donald Trump smacked them around in his first press conference since winning the election.And I hate to add salt to their wounds, but it seems they’ve got a case of amnesia.The media feigned outrage after Mr. Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter.“Don’t be rude,” Mr. Trump told CNN’s Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”He went all-out against the network because they reported on an unsubstantiated 35-page document that...

    ... on both his mother’s AND his father’s side of the family, Obama is descended from people who owned and/or sold black African slaves. How ironic that Obama received almost universal support from blacks who are here because their ancestors were grabbed up and sold into slavery by other black Africans, including Obama’s father’s tribe. Not surprisingly, when this issue first came up from a story published in the Baltimore Sun on March 2, 2007, quoted here by Sweetness and Light, which only looked into Obama’s mother’s family, the media demonized Obama’s mother’s side of the family for apparently owning...

    Indiana Democrat, an outsourcing critic, has seen greater earnings in recent years. Indiana senator Joe Donnelly (D.) didn't make substantial investments in his family's ink business until after it moved part of its manufacturing into Mexico, and his profits have steadily increased in the years since, according to financial disclosure forms. Donnelly's investment in the family company, Stewart Superior Corp., was highlighted on Thursday by the Associated Press, which pointed out the senator's past criticism of companies that outsource manufacturing to Mexico. Donnelly has said that outsourcing is "a fancy term for ‘someone in Indiana has just lost their job,'"...

    Former Hillary Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri said former President Obama "looked kind of like a jackass" when he appeared on actor Zach Galifianakis' web show "Between Two Ferns" in 2014. Palmieri made the comments while speaking at a Yale University event on Thursday about the 2016 presidential horserace and the current political landscape. The comment was one of several blunt remarks Palmieri made, including referring to ISIS beheadings as a "manufactured press story." [Snip] Attributing Clinton’s loss to "sexism" and the "irrational hatred that hangs around her," Palmieri dismissed criticism towards the campaign's management as "distracting."

    The 300,000 pennies the Cedar Bluff, Virginia man took to the DMV Wednesday morning to pay sales tax on two new cars weighed in at 1,600 pounds. A mature Holstein cow weighs about 1,500 pounds. See, Stafford had a bone to pick with the DMV. It wasn’t about agonizingly long lines or a bad picture on his driver’s license: It came down to 10 phone numbers. And Stafford ended up filing three lawsuits and spending at least $1,005 to give the DMV his 2 cents. One might feel bad for the Lebanon DMV employees, who chose to count the coins...

    “Russia views these not as U.S. sanctions, but Obama sanctions, so he will go and we can both decide that we don’t bear any responsibility for the actions of a jackass,” Fyodor Lukyanov told Bloomberg News. Fyodor Lukyanov is chairman of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, a Kremlin foreign-policy advisory group. Russia is displaying grace, restraint, reason and humor in this matter as Obama launches accusations against the Kremlin and inflicted retaliatory sanctions. "Russia hopes that it can ride out the storm and put relations with the U.S. on a better track once [President-elect] Trump takes office," said...

    Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges blasted the “jackass remarks” made by the head of the city’s police union on Tuesday, while Police Chief Janeé Harteau issued a more measured response in the wake of four Minneapolis police officers who walked off an off-duty job at a Minnesota Lynx game Saturday. The officers quit the job before the game over the decision by players to criticize racial profiling and wear pregame warm up jerseys, that said “Black Lives Matter,” but also included the Dallas Police logo. Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll said in an interview with the Star Tribune on Monday...

    Of everyone in the MSM, Joe Scarborough has been widely seen as the most ardent Trump supporter--starting from the day Donald descended that escalator with Melania. Scarborough would argue he was merely offering dispassionate political analysis--saying that Trump's chances should be taken seriously while others were disdainfully dismissing him. But for those of us who watched Joe day in and day out during the primary season, there seemed to be something much more than green-eyeshade analysis going on. Scarborough revelled in every poll and primary result favorable to Trump. Which makes Scarborough's statement on today's Morning Joe so strange. Joe...

  • Obama Not Scheduled to Attend San Bernardino Funerals

    President Barack Obama is not scheduled to attend any of the funerals for the victims of the San Bernardino terror attack nine days ago, Breitbart News has learned. He has yet to visit the town in the wake of the deadliest terror attack since 9/11. The White House did not return a request for comment about the president’s schedule. It is unknown to the public whether he will attend any funerals, the first of which took place on Thursday for victim Yvette Velasco. Two were scheduled for Friday morning, which Obama appears to be missing as well.
