    Gateway Pundit ^ | 5/16/16 | Jim Hoft
    In 2010 Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq was going to be one of the Obama administrations great accomplishments. Im very optimistic about Iraq and its going to be one of the great achievements of this administration. (Video) Biden was able to make these comments after the Bush surge resulted in enormous reduction in violence, an increase in GDP, peak oil production, increased electricity rates, a free press and democratic elections. But that all changed after Barack Obama withdrew US troops from Iraq in 2011. Since then, ISIS took over one-third of the country and initiated a genocide of Iraqi...

    U.S. Vice President Biden told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in a call on Friday that the United States is prepared to move forward with a third loan guarantee agreement to support reforms against corruption, the White House said. The United States promised the third $1 billion loan guarantee in November, but it was contingent on progress on reforms and fighting corruption. Biden also welcomed the appointment of a new prosecutor general in Ukraine as "an important first step to bringing much needed reform," to the prosecutor general office. Ukrainian lawmakers on Thursday appointed Yuriy Lutsenko, a close ally of Poroshenko,...

    Vice President Joe Biden says he would have been the best president if he had mounted a successful campaign in the 2016 election, but that forgoing the race was the right decision for his family. Speaking with Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview that aired today, Biden said he had planned to run but changed course only after his eldest son Beau died last May. No one should ever seek the presidency unless they're able to devote their whole heart and soul and passion into just doing that, he said. And, Beau was my soul. I...

Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said both Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahus government, suggested his approach raised profound questions about how...

While agreeing that their sole purpose for existing is to heroically protect her from losing the nomination, super-delegates do not, in fact, have super-powers such as: Tax-ray vision, mainstream media invisibility, abortion claws, a magic red tape lasso, debt deflectors, terrorist noise cancelers, tyranny empathizers, and a logic shield made out of laminated race cards. Clinton then went on to clarify that any Democrat has all of those things, but they are actually perks...

    Conservative and center-right columnists often have to do far more digging than their liberal counterparts, simply because overwhelmingly left-leaning beat journalists, aka "Democrats with bylines," provide such unbalanced reporting on current events on a daily basis. Fortunately, the Washington Post's Marc Thiessen did the entirely necessary work of rummaging through available information about federal court nominations in 1988 and 1992. Any beat reporter could have done the same thing, but either didn't, or decided not to report what was found. What Thiessen unearthed makes an argument-ending mockery of Vice President Joe Biden's claim, made in a Monday evening tweet, that when he...

"I never sent or received any material marked classified," she said with respect to the discovery of classified information on her private, unclassified email server. That surface denial nearly rivals Bill Clinton's classic: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." But this is no laughing matter. There is nothing trivial about a secretary of state having top-secret information on an unsecured computer in her home. That appears to have been the case, based on the State Department's announcement last week that 22...

    Panic among some Democrats about Hillary Clinton running into trouble with Bernie Sanders is spreading so rapidly that the idea of drafting Vice President Joe Biden is popping up yet again. Fox News has learned that a prominent backer of the "Draft Biden 2016" movement, Tulsa businessman Bill Bartmann, fired off an email Friday afternoon to several dozen Democratic allies musing about the possibility of reviving the push for Biden. "I would urge all of you to join me in 'keeping our powder dry' until we see if for the good of the party and the country, we should resurrect...

    Oh, what a web we weave, when we practice to deceive… Hillary’s really not very good at her main job; that of a professional liar. Every time Hillary Clinton is asked by the media about her involvement in the Email Scandal, she continually states that she did not receive or send any information marked classified at the time. When pressed on this, she comments that the information might have become classified at a later date, after it flowed through her non-secure server and into the hands of Putin, ISIS, Xi, Kim Jong-Un and the maniacal Mullahs of Teheran. Anyone who...

    According to a new report from the New York Times, the State Department announced that 18 emails between President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be withheld from release to the public. These emails "had been sent through Hillary Clinton's private computer server" on her private email. The report from the Times did not make the connection that Mr. Obama had lied. However, IOTW Report has found that this revelation proves that President Obama lied about how he gained knowledge of Ms. Clinton's server. According to CBS News, President Obama stated that he had no knowledge of Ms. Clinton's server...

    Vice President Joe Biden told fellow Democrats on Thursday that they should see it as “a gift from the Lord” if Republicans nominate Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas or billionaire businessman Donald Trump for president in 2016. “We may be given a gift from the Lord in the presidential race here,” Biden told lawmakers attending the annual House of Representatives Democratic conference, held this year in Baltimore. “I don’t know who to root for more: Cruz? Or what’s that guy’s name, he’s having a fundraiser for veterans tonight, I’m told,” said the vice president. Trump has announced he will snub...

    There’s no way these media reports are accidental or not directly connected. And none of this looks the least bit good against the larger dynamic of the Syrian crisis and President Stompy Feet’s prior position on ISIS.

    Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that if upcoming negotiations fail and no political solution to the civil war in Syria is possible, the United States is prepared to step in with major military force. "We do know it would better if we can reach a political solution but we are prepared... if that's not possible... to have a military solution to this operation in taking out Daesh," Biden said following a meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

    The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle "cut and pasted" material from the government's classified network so that it could be sent to her private e-mail address, former State Department security officials say. [Snip] "It takes a very conscious effort to move a classified e-mail or cable from the classified systems over to the unsecured open system and then send it to Hillary Clinton's personal e-mail account," said Raymond Fournier, a veteran Diplomatic Security Service special agent. "That's no less than a two-conscious-step process." He says it's clear from some of the classified e-mails made public...
  • Is Bloomberg out to ruin Hillary Clinton’s party?

    With polls showing a surge by Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in early-voting states, billionaire Michael Bloomberg is weighing a presidential bid as an independent, third-party candidate, the New York Times reported Saturday. Bloomberg, the popular former mayor of New York City, has sent up trial balloons before. But this time he seems concerned enough about the rise of candidates on the fringes of both parties - and Hillary Clinton's weakness in Iowa and New Hampshire - to assemble advisers and set down plans. In fact, Bloomberg is reportedly even studying up on past third-party runs by H. Ross Perot...

    Former GOP presidential candidate George Pataki is predicting that Democrat Hillary Clinton's "legal issues" will force an outside candidate to jump into the 2016 White House race as a white knight. "People talk about the problems in the Republican Party, but I think Democrats have a bigger problem," the former New York governor told host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM-970 on Sunday. "Hillary Clinton is cratering, the scandals just keep coming. She has grave legal issues that could totally prevent her from continuing her campaign, and the alternative is a self-avowed socialist who has never...

    Let me be clear - I am pro-life. I support that position with exceptions allowed for rape, incest or the life of the mother being at risk. I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me. My story is well documented, so I will not retell it here. However, what I will do with the remaining space is express my feelings about life, and the culture of life, as we just marked the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I build things. There is...
