  • Actually, Elizabeth Warren is a terrible candidate

    06/27/2016 9:18:53 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 26 replies
    Enthusiasm for Warren is artificially amplified by a sympathetic media echo chamber. This phenomenon is not unlike Huntsman ’12… (SNIP) I know what you’re thinking: Warren beat Brown. Scott Brown out-campaigned Warren in MA Senate ’12– and would have won, were it not for 3 factors out of his control… (SNIP) Despite Obama’s landslide victory (61-38), Warren won by a narrow margin: 53-47, meaning a significant number of Obama voters defected to Brown. (SNIP) That cycle, many Democrat Senate candidates– running in much less favorable territory– won by greater margins: √ Tom Carper 66.4% √ Sheldon Whitehouse 64.8% √ Joe...

    Vermont Watchdog ^ | June 27, 2016 | By Bruce Parker
    BURLINGTON, Vt. Epidemiologists at the Vermont Department of Health are concealing the number of refugees with contagious active tuberculosis nearly a month after Watchdog reported that more than one-third of Vermonts resettled refugees test positive for TB. Earlier this month, Watchdog revealed that 35 percent of Vermonts incoming refugees in the past four years tested positive for tuberculosis. How many of those cases are contagious and symptomatic, however, remains a secret, as state epidemiologists and top officials at the Health Department have spent weeks blocking efforts to obtain the data. Refugees brought to the United States take TB tests...

    Two delegates to the Democratic Partys platform drafting committee one appointed by Hillary Clinton and the other by Bernie Sanders said the platform must reflect the hardships faced both by Israelis and Palestinians. [Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., and Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., appointed by Sanders and Clinton respectively, said] Palestinians struggle under an unjust occupation that deprives them of the rights, opportunities and independence that they deserve. That is the reality of a conflict that has gone on for far too long and at a terrible cost. The statement was released by J Street, the liberal Middle East policy...

    Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.), a Hillary Clinton superdelegate, was convicted on Tuesday on corruption charges stemming from a racketeering conspiracy in which the congressman and four associates misappropriated thousands of dollars from federal, campaign, and charitable sources. Fattah and four associates were indicted in July 2015 on 29 corruption charges including racketeering, bribery, money laundering, mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, and falsification of records, among other charges. The Department of Justice said Fattah took an illegal $1 million loan from his failed Philadelphia mayoral bid in 2007 and disguised it as a loan to his consulting company. At...

    Since 1992, Republicans have been smarting their loss by claiming that Ross Perot stole enough votes to elect Bill Clinton. Even as much as the loyal opposition seeks to demystify the winner's victory, the Perot-elected-Clinton lie has only served to force the GOP to adopt pro-immigrant pro-big-gov narratives. Perot was more liberal than Slick Willie himself. http://www.ontheissues.org/Ross_Perot.htm He was pro-abortion, pro-homo, and for tax hikes on fossil fuel, the driver of American jobs. Bush I's job approvals in 1992 were as low than Jimmy Carter's in 1980 http://spectator.org/63682_bushioisie-wrong-ross-perot-didnt-cost-ghw-bush-white-house-1992/ http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx Of course Bush was 1000x better than Surrender Monkey Dhimmi, but...

It is called political energy. It is the lack of political energy that explains why the Democratic Party,...

Frank spoke of the attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando this weekend in an interview with the New York Times Monday. "It's an attack against gay people but it does not reflect a general deterioration of our standing in America," he said. "It reflects the virulence of the hatred in this sector of Islam."

And hes doing it in a more insidious, under-the-radar way than any previous GOP presidential nominee. Though he rarely raises his positions against LGBT rights on the campaign trail, Trump is making pacts with anti-LGBT forces.

In Sanders' speeches and interviews, there is virtually no mention of his being a Jew (unless he's asked about it), and -- what's truly amazing for an American presidential candidate -- there are few mentions of America, except to lament American inequality, Wall Street corruption and other American evils.

    Delivering an unexpectedly robust address to America's most powerful pro-Israel lobby, the US secretary of state sent a strong signal that the Obama administration would not back down in its two-week stand-off with Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister. Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, ordered Benjamin Netanyahu to reverse a decision to build 1,600 homes for Israeli settlers Speaking as Mr Netanyahu arrived in Washington for high-level talks, Mrs Clinton cautioned that Israel's refusal to halt construction in the territories it occupied after the 1967 Six-Day was emboldening its enemies. She also hinted for the first time that...
  • Hillary Cheered Broadway's Book of Mormon, Condemns Innocence of Muslims

    American Thinker ^ | September 17, 2012 | Jack Cashill
    On Thursday of last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the video project Innocence of Muslims, the one that may or may not have provoked riots worldwide, "disgusting and reprehensible." Although Clinton could have seen no more than a 13-minute trailer for the video, she condemned it in no uncertain terms: "Let me state very clearly -- and I hope it is obvious -- the United States government had nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message." One would think that Clinton might have had a similar reaction to a musical comedy by the...

    Government has a right to regulate the Second Amendment, Hillary Clinton said in an interview on the June 5 airing of This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Clinton contended that Americans have historically recognized the governments right to regulate the bearing of arms, suggesting that it was not until District of Columbia v Heller (2008) that anyone thought otherwise. Stephanopoulos asked, Do you believe an individuals right to bear arms is a constitutional right? That its not linked to the service in the militia?

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) accused President Obama and Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton of giving Palestinians a pass on anti-Semitism, incitement, and terrorism in a new statement. Israel has suffered a wave of Palestinian terrorism over the past week, fueled by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ calls for violence and unrest. “Reminiscent of the days when Yasser Arafat talked peace in English and jihad in Arabic,” Rubio writes, “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas — a man President Obama regularly hails as a peacemaker — is inciting the bloodshed. ‘Every drop of blood that has been spilled in Jerusalem is holy blood as long as...

    May 25, 2005, 12:57 p.m. Senator Israel Hillary Clinton runs from her past. By Rachel Zabarkes Friedman Watching Hillary Clinton's speech at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference on Tuesday was a chance to observe a political master in action. In her usual stone-faced way, the senator set out to present herself as a stalwart supporter of Israel and of America's alliance with Israel and judging by the audience's reaction, she succeeded brilliantly. Many of the several thousand people gathered in Washington's Convention Center AIPAC says there were over 5,000 participants at the conference...

    The HIll ^ | March 18, 2016 | Benjamin Weinthal and Asaf Romirowsky
    This weeks AIPAC conference will place the fractured Israel-US relationship front and center in the American publics focus. Of all the promises that the Obama White House has failed to keep regarding US-Israeli relations, it is breaking its undertaking that there will be no daylight between the two allies that has above all solidified the growing wedge between Washington and Jerusalem. There is a soft/active boycott coming out of Washington as a result of the tough love message that Barack Obama has been peddling around since his talk in Jerusalem in 2013 and during his speech during Jewish American Heritage...

    Proving conclusively they're as politically tone deaf as they are inept, the Obama administration today paved the way for an Islamist 'scholar' with deep ties to terrorism and a thirst for the extinction of Israel to re-enter the United States. The breathtaking arrogance of these people beyond is beyond belief. I guess they weren't paying attention last night when Scott Brown stressed the importance of the war on terror. The State Department has cleared the way for two prominent but controversial scholars to return to the United States. State Department spokesman Darby Holladay said Wednesday that Secretary of State Hillary...
  • Hillary Clinton: Force Christians to Change Their Religious Views to Support Abortion

    In a speech last week, Hillary Clinton lamented that too many women are supposedly denied abortions. The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that pro-abortion comment, but she also is drawing widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech. The comment has Hillary Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions.“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion.“Rights have to exist in practice...

    DEMOCRATIC FASCISM [beware hillary clinton] Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler Friday, 04 November 2005 Lying to a Grand Jury is a very serious crime. We know this because when Bill Clinton lied under oath to a Grand Jury, he was sentenced to 30 years in a federal penitentiary. His fellow Democrats, putting patriotism before party, all agreed that perjury and obstruction of justice were inexcusable violations of law, and that no one, not even the President of the United States, was "above the law." What's that? Bill Clinton willfully perjured himself and impeded the special prosecutor's investigation but got...

The unrest came despite new security measures that have placed troops and checkpoints around Palestinian neighborhoods in east Jerusalem.
