Hillary Clinton's Transparent Lies: ^ | September 30, 2015 | Jacob Sullum 

In a "Meet the Press" interview on Sunday, Hillary Clinton said she has tried to "be as transparent as possible" in response to questions about her use of a private email server as secretary of state. A timeline of her efforts so far suggests she needs to try a little harder.
March 3: The New York Times reports that Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, used a private server for all of her electronic correspondence as secretary of state, thereby evading automatic archiving. A spokesman for Clinton says she complied with "the letter and spirit of the rules" governing State Department communications.
March 8: A spokesman for Bill Clinton says he has used email only twice in his life, both times when he was president.
March 10: Clinton reports that she erased about 32,000 email messages she deemed private, including ''personal communications from my husband and me,'' and gave the State Department about 30,000 work-related messages. She says she ''fully complied with every rule,'' "went above and beyond what I was requested to do" and "did not email any classified material to anyone."
March 31: CNN reports that Clinton, who said she used a private email address because ''I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two," carried two devices, a BlackBerry and an iPad, that she used for email as secretary of state.
April 21: Clinton mentions that she has since started carrying two additional devices, an iPhone and a mini iPad.
July 7: "I've never had a subpoena" seeking email messages, Clinton tells CNN's Brianna Keilar.
July 8: Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, releases a copy of a March 4 congressional subpoena seeking relevant Clinton email messages.
July 24: The inspectors general of the State Department and the intelligence community report that Clinton's email included classified material that never should have been stored on a private server.
August 18: Pressed by Fox News correspondent Ed Henry about whether she had "wiped" her email server, Clinton replies, "What? With a cloth or something?"
August 20: A federal judge hearing a Freedom of Information Act case concerning Clinton's email says, "We wouldn't be here if the employee had followed government policy."
August 26: Clinton concedes that using a private email server "clearly wasn't the best choice," adding, "I take responsibility for that decision." Revising her earlier claim about sensitive material in her email, she says she is confident an FBI investigation will show that "I never sent, nor received, any email that was marked classified."
September 4: Asked whether she owes Americans an apology for the email controversy, Clinton tells NBC News, "I am sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions."
September 7: Clinton tells the Associated Press there is no reason for her to apologize about her private email address because "what I did was allowed."
September 8: Clinton finally uses the m-word to describe her private email server, telling ABC News, "That was a mistake. I'm sorry about that. I take responsibility."
September 25: The State Department says it has email correspondence between Clinton at her private address and David Petraeus, then commander of the U.S. Central Command, beginning January 10, 2009, more than two months before Clinton says she started using that address.
September 27: Asked about the discrepancy on "Meet the Press," Clinton has no explanation. "There was a transition period," she says. "You know, I wasn't that focused on my email."
During that same interview, Clinton blamed the email controversy on a "drip, drip, drip" of "charges and claims" from Republicans. "There's only so much that I can control," she said. There's a lesson that Clinton, whose controlling tendencies gave birth to this story and kept it alive, really should take to heart.

"Black People" Panel Features No Black People!

The Social Memo ^ | 9/30/15 | Aurelius 

A "multicultural creative career fair" aimed at encouraging the hiring of African Americans featured a panel at their event that had no black people in it.
The fair, called "Here are all the black people," is a one-day event that "provides multicultural students, recent graduates, and creative professionals who are interested in exploring careers in advertising and design the opportunity to showcase their talent to top agencies in the industry."
A panel during the fair, however, featured precisely no black people, leading to this ironic photo:

Another angle of the panel was re-tweeted by The One's twitter account:

"Here are all the black people" was put together by the One Club, a non-profit that states they are "the world's foremost non-profit organization for the recognition and promotion of excellence in advertising."
According to the One Club, they present "Here Are All The Black People" "as a forum for the next generation of diverse creative professionals to showcase their creativity. These students, recent graduates, and transitioning professionals, travel in force to this event demonstrating their desire to gain entry into our industry. Courageously, they present fresh ideas to the best agencies and creative leaders in the industry."

Congressman Asks for Documents to Find Out Whether Women Got Special Treatment at Ranger School

People Magazine ^ | September 22, 2015 | Susan Keating 

A congressman who is a combat veteran and Ranger graduate has asked the Pentagon's top Army leader to produce documents related to the performance of the females who began Ranger School at Fort Benning, Georgia earlier this year, PEOPLE has learned.
In a letter obtained exclusively by PEOPLE, Rep. Steve Russell, R-Okla., gave outgoing Army Secretary John McHugh until September 25 to produce documents revealing the women's test scores, evaluations, injuries, pre-training and more. The letter was delivered to McHugh's Pentagon office on September 15.
"The training of our combat warriors is paramount to our national defense," Russell wrote to McHugh. "In order to ensure that the Army retains its ability to defend the nation, we must ensure that our readiness is not sacrificed."
The congressman is concerned because "sources at Fort Benning are coming forward to say the Army lied about women in Ranger School, that the women got special treatment and played by different rules," according to a Capitol Hill source with knowledge of why the letter was crafted. "These folks say one thing, the Army says another. Congress needs to know the truth, and Russell reached out to find it."(continued)

The fundamental reason why Cruz is the best choice!

Peter O'Donnell 

What is the fundamental reason to select Senator Ted Cruz over a field of other candidates for the Republican presidential candidate?
The answer lies in the constitution -- not in some part of the document, but in the IMPORTANCE of the document.
Senator Cruz has established that he understands this fundamental fact, and relies on it more than any other candidate. And he has the experience and educational background to make that understanding more effectual.
Why is the Constitution so particularly important in this presidential election? Was it not always equally important?
It is more important because America, like many western nations, has had an undeclared social(ist) revolution in recent years, and the Constitution has been shoved aside, either ignored or abrogated by actions of that revolutionary government.
The revolution has a deep foundation, it is sustained by academic and media elites, and most of the Democratic Party. Substantial parts of the Republican Party, while perhaps not as actively revolutionary, have chosen to look away and pretend this has not taken place. Some might say they have aided and abetted the revolution.
A second American revolution is a big deal no matter how you view it, and so to pretend it has not taken place is the ultimate act of denial. It is a big deal because it affects every important area of everday life, from security issues to taxation to the economy, foreign relations (again related to security) and the place of special interest groups in a larger society.
The first revolution had only one special interest group, that being the people of the (then) Thirteen Colonies. We, the people, fought that revolution.
This second revolution is a victory of a coalition of minorities against a placid and ambivalent majority, half of whom are so shamed by guilt trips that they refuse to take any stand whatsoever.
Yet the Constitution remains intact and the only effective foundation for resistance. Some speak of the need of a second American revolution, by which they mean a revolution against the progressives. However, that would be more of a counter-revolution, a restoration of constitutional principles.
The most significant constitutional principle that requires restoration is the separation of powers. In close second place would be the first (and second) amendments. Of equal significance perhaps is a restoration of the balance of powers between branches of government.
The Constitution also requires that the president be entirely loyal to the nation and not be the servant of some foreign power (or religion). Legitimate doubt now exists about whether this current administration is at least in the spiritual sense in violation of that essential principle.
Now the common law is also an extension of any free country's constitution, properly applied, and common law demands that a nation have clear borders, citizenship and military checks and balances. Can anyone truthfully say that America has any of those now?
I believe that America can count on Senator Cruz to restore the legal foundation of at least the executive branch of government, and to have a positive influence on other actors. Perhaps other candidates would be good in these areas too. It is not a case that only one man has any clue about the importance of these principles, perhaps half a dozen are appropriately concerned and able to act. But in each case, they fall short of the high standard set by Senator Cruz.
Foreign policy, relations with Russia and the Islamic world, also require a person of the highest integrity, resolve and vision. There are various sources of wise counsel in those fields, and Senator Cruz will need all of them in the mess left behind by the Obama years.
And if another candidate is to win, then I hope and pray that they will at least have the close co-operation and participation of Senator Cruz to assist them. Perhaps it would be just as effective to have a Trump-Cruz administration, one is challenged to imagine a Vice President Trump, but when given this high level of concern about the future of the nation (and the free world in general), one cannot think of a valid reason to set aside the best available candidate. We made that mistake in 2008, let's not make it again in 2016.
Cruz to victory.

Look at what we learn from Planned Parenthood when they’re under oath

Catholic Vote ^ | September 30, 2015 | Rob Corzine 

It took testifying under oath to get Cecile Richards (CEO of Planned Parenthood) to tell the truth about what Planned Parenthood does.
— She confessed that abortion does not account for “3 percent of their business” as previously regurgitated, but in fact a full 86 percent of their non-tax funded revenue.
— Planned Parenthood raked in 127 million dollars “in excess of revenue”. She personally got a $240,000 raise two years ago bringing her yearly “compensation” up to over half a million dollars. So much for being a non-profit.
— She admitted that none of the 600+ PP-clinics conduct mammograms. None. And then she LIED by saying, “We do not have mammogram machines at our health centers. And we’ve never stated that we did.” Um, yes… yes, you have stated that you did.
— She said she’d never heard of a case of a baby born alive from a failed abortion attempt…. except that Gianna Jessen just testified about how she was born alive in a Planned Parenthood clinic after her mother’s failed abortion.
In related news, two forensic analysts (one hired by PP and an independent analyst) reported that NONE of the videos were edited, except to take out irrelevant info (like bathroom breaks).

Under pressure: McConnell pushed to resign as Senate Majority Leader

The Washington Times ^ | 9-27-2015 | Ralph Z. Hallow 

With John Boehner now departing as House speaker, an influential Republican Party official is now seeking the ouster of another GOP leader who has frustrated conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.

Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus.


Mr. Villere did say what specifically about Mr. McConnell makes his state’s rank-and-file GOP voters so dyspeptic that they want him out as leader — his failure to challenge executive overreach by President Obama or fight to repeal Obamacare and other unpopular measures.

“Mr. McConnell could have suspended consideration of confirmations for all presidential appointees, except for those who are essential to national security, until the president rescinded his unconstitutional executive action on amnesty,” Mr. Villere said.

“This would have been a constitutionally appropriate response to the overreach of the executive branch,” he said. “It would have transformed the political environment, greatly encouraged Republican donors and grass-roots activists, and positioned us to refuse to confirm replacements for any Supreme Court openings that might occur during the remainder of the Obama administration.”.........

Massachusetts woman charged with almost $4 million in food stamp fraud

Canada Free Press ^ | 09/30/15 | Robert Laurie 

It's only 'millions.' No biggie, right?
Progressives will tell you that food stamp fraud is basically a problem that doesn’t exist. At best they’ll admit that, perhaps, there are a few instances where a store sells something to a customer that shouldn’t be covered by the SNAP program - but they’ll claim those minor transgressions are extremely isolated cases. They’ll regale you with tales of the hard-working poor who hold down two jobs and receive welfare just to make ends meet.
They usually blame the plight of the less fortunate on capitalism and, if they’re feeling really saucy, they might throw in buzzwords like “one perenters” or “banksters.”

Young: ‘Thirders’ have taken over GOP!

The Austin American-Statesman ^ | September 30, 2015 | John Young 

A lot of Republicans are hoping Donald Trump will go away, and here’s why he won’t: The Thirders aren’t going away, either.
Understand, the Thirders aren’t a lot of us — just a third — but being the life force of the Republican Party, they are enough to run it. That’s a takeaway from the announced retirement of Speaker John Boehner. He is conceding the House to the forces of GOP wackery.
We used to know the Thirders as Birthers, but we’ve come to see that they have, um, diversified.
The term “Thirders” is my own. It came from polls that show a solid core of right-wingers resistant to any factual assault — polls consistently showing that one-third of Americans don’t believe President Obama was born here, and polls showing that about a third of Americans believe him to be a Muslim.
Anything they can believe about the man, the Thirders will rationalize. Did you hear about the poll showing that one-third of Louisiana Republicans blamed Obama for the poor federal response to Hurricane Katrina — three years before he became president? Did you hear that three years into implementation, a sizable portion of Republicans still believes “death panels” are built into the Affordable Care Act?
Did you hear that Obama will abolish the 22nd Amendment to make himself president for life? I hear this from Thirders who believe it. It would be a trick, considering what it takes to amend the Constitution, but Thirders know Obama is planning it.
It should be no surprise that Donald Trump, the Thirder with the most hair and most money, is leading in the race for the GOP presidential nomination.
It should be no surprise that Ben Carson also is doing well among the Thirders, and Ted Cruz still thinks he can secure their heart.
George Will is not a Thirder. He writes that, with his anti-immigrant appeals, Trump wishes to “turn America into a police state in order to facilitate ethnic cleansing.” Yikes.
Charles Krauthammer is not a Thirder. He calls Carson’s assertion that a Muslim should not be president not only contrary to the First Amendment but “morally outrageous.”
All of this is to point out the mathematical truth that these candidates’ popularity is based on the heartbeat of a fringe of America’s fringe.
Let’s do the Thirder math: If we assume, as polls show, that Republicans and those who lean that way are about 45 percent of voters — and if Trump and Carson are supported by roughly 20 percent of them apiece (new CNN poll) — that means that they are supported by 9 percent apiece of all of us. If 11 percent of Republicans fall for Carly Fiorina’s increasingly fact-challenged claims, that’s about 5 percent of us. If Cruz is supported by 5 percent of Republicans, that represents 2.25 percent of us.
Is Marco Rubio a Thirder? He made quite a play the other day. He implied that women get abortions for a piece of the profit alleged to Planned Parenthood from the sale of fetal tissue. That claim — illegal profiteering — is one that rafts of investigations and investigators have failed to prove.
Let’s say such irresponsible claims are a reason why Rubio now has 11 percent support among Republicans, having gained Thirder street cred. That’s, once again, 5 percent of us.
Add the cumulative support of Trump, Carson, Fiorina, Rubio and Cruz, and you’ve got — what did I say? — just about one third of Americans, spectacularly resistant to anything approaching reality, and ready to vote that way.

Taking on Trump: The elite media Are now trying to decipher the Donald!

Fox News ^ | September 30, 2015 | Howard Kurtz 

After a long summer of denial and disparagement, even the most elite precincts of the media establishment are trying to come to grips with Donald Trump.
First it was the cable news networks, which instantly realized that Trump was good box office, followed by the network morning shows. Then some of the columnists who had dismissed him as a sideshow began to grapple with his rising poll numbers, even those who continued to hammer him.
That was followed by a series of faulty predictions that Trump was about to implode because of this or that corrosive comment, to the point that some talking heads simply announced that they were getting out of the forecasting business.
Trump even scored a “60 Minutes” profile on Sunday for the season opener--drawing 15 million viewers--and later declared that CBS anchor Scott Pelley had been fair to him.
Now some other upscale outlets, rather late to the party, are joining in the dark arts of psychoanalysis: What makes Donald Trump tick, and how has he managed to completely upend the rituals and decorum of a presidential campaign and play by his own set of rules?
What does it say about the electorate that he has struck such a deep chord—and, I would add, what does it say about the media and political insiders who suddenly seemed so clueless?

ALERT: Planned Parenthood President Admits that 86% of Revenue Comes from Abortions! ^ | September 29, 2015 7:23 pm | John S. Roberts

Earlier today, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards (who earns $520,000 annually as head of the abortion giant) was grilled by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) about the organization’s practices, and verbally admitted that she supports abortion by GENDER AND RACE.
Gee, wasn’t that founder Margaret Sanger’s intention in the first place?
Richards also let it be known that 86% of Planned Butcherhood’s earnings comes from abortions.
And some wonder why conservatives don’t support funneling $500 million yearly to the murderous enterprise?
From Twitchy: "There was just a great moment at the House hearing gong on right now where Cecile Richards was forced to admit under questioning from Rep. Cynthia Lummins (R, WY) that although abortions only account for 3% of Planned Parenthood’s total procedures, abortions account for 86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenues."
TWEET: Amy Curtis @modernc omments: "Abortions 86% of revenue, 3% of services. Lummins asks @CecileRichards to explain this disparity." 11:00 AM - 29 Sep 2015
86% !?! We need to 86 this vile outlet, asap!
…and then there’s this…
TWEET: Right to Life of MI @Right_to_Life: "Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards admits Planned Parenthood doesn't provide mammograms." 11:06 AM - 29 Sep 2015
So, let’s get this straight.
Planned Parenthood receives more than 3/4 of its money from killing the unborn, and they have zero mammogram machines on site.
I thought PP’s were in business to help women? Turns out – as we’ve all known for a long time – Planned Parenthood is in the business of destroying the lives of the most innocent, just like The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg told us last week.
MSNBC, ABC, CBS, HLN, and every other major network jumped on this news right away, and in a poll I’ve just conducted in my head, 99% of Democrats have now decided to support the defunding of the nation’s largest abortion provider.
A guy can dream.
Anyone who supports Planned Parenthood – or campaigns on how much they love the services the company provides to women – needs to get bent.

Hillary: “You mean the Mexican gun running?”
Trump: “No, the other one.” Hillary: “You mean SEAL Team 6?”

Two women tried to rob a senior citizen, things turned out poorly for them!

Hot ^ | September 28, 2015 | Matt Vespa 

An Oregon man was bound by home invaders, but was able to break free and grab his gun, which possibly saved his life. Fox 12 Oregon reportedthat two women tied the senior citizen to a chair, where they then proceeded to rob him:
One of the suspects, identified as 50-year-old Sheila Clark of Coos Bay, then took off in the man’s Chevrolet Blazer, according to deputies, while the second suspect, 27-year-old Michelle Taylor of Crescent City, California, stayed behind to guard him.
Police located the vehicle at McKay’s Market in Gold Beach and then found Clark in the store. She was arrested for an outstanding warrant out of Multnomah County and faces additional charges of robbery, coercion, burglary, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and theft.
In the meantime, investigators said the man who was tied up was able to free himself. He grabbed a handgun and pointed it at Taylor, the sheriff’s office said, and she ran away from the home.
These ladies obviously messed with the wrong guy, who exercised his Second Amendment rights, and was able to protect himself. Fox 12 added that Taylor is still at a large.
There have been other instances where the elderly had to exercise their Second Amendment rights to defend themselves. In Athens, Alabama, three people, one male, two females, were arrested for robbing a 74-year old man last week. AL News reported that a friend of the victim came over to his residence with two women he didn’t know; one of them asked if she could borrow $25. The elderly man did not fork over the money, as he did not know this woman. Later that day, the same two women returned with another man, who wanted to take his clothes line for scrap metal. That’s where the situation turned violent:
The victim said he refused to give it to him, and the male grabbed him around the neck and told him to “tell them where the rest of the money was or he was going to hurt him bad.” The women allegedly started searching his home for his money.
“The victim said he reached inside his pocket and pulled out his pistol and pointed it at the male’s face and pulled the trigger. The victim said the pistol didn’t fire,” Johnson said. “About the same time, one of the females yelled, ‘He’s got a gun,’ and everyone ran out of his residence.”
The victim said that he was missing $320 from the incident.
Given how the elderly are easy targets for such felonious acts by more unscrupulous characters in our society, it shouldn’t shock us that more and more seniors are becoming gun owners.

The Establishment’s Lies Are Catching Up (fun flashback from exactly one month ago!) ^ | 8/28/15 | Daniel Horowitz 

They had it all. The GOP party bosses appeared to be winning every legislative and electoral battle with conservatives. After beating back almost every primary challenge in 2014 and after passing one liberal bill after another with the support of Democrats, the elite technocrats and cronies within the party were high-fiving and slapping each other’s backs over their successfully crushing of the tea party.
Except – they never won anything. It was all an illusion. And in fact, their temporary victories set the stage for an irrevocable defeat in the long-run.
Last cycle, in my previous job, I was heavily involved in recruiting primary candidates to run against the phony Republican political class. The most striking lesson throughout the election season was that not a single establishment Republican would run on the veracity of their views – the ones they espouse and pursue in Washington. They co-opted all of our talking points on the core issues while often accusing the conservative candidates of being ideologically impure. In addition, they used their superior money, resources, and talent to bury the upstart candidates – most of whom had only rudimentary campaign resources and novice staff – before the candidates could even define themselves.
The bravado from the GOP establishment was only emboldened by the smashing victory over the Democrats in the general election. At the time, verses from Psalms (10: 5-6, 10) came to mind:

'Beyond Belief': Obama Moves to Close Last US Uranium Plant

Newsmax. ^ | 28 Sep 2015 | David A. Patten 

The Obama administration plans to close the last remaining American-owned uranium enrichment facility in the United States, even as it moves forward on a controversial nuclear deal with Iran that permits the Islamic Republic to conduct ongoing and significant uranium enrichment.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has informed Centrus Energy it will end the American Centrifuge project in Piketon, Ohio, on Sept. 30. Notices have been issued to some 235 workers that their jobs are in jeopardy.
This is beyond belief," Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, responded in a statement. "While this administration is greenlighting uranium enrichment in Iran and legitimizing 6,000 Iranian centrifuges, they're shutting down domestic production here in America."
Wenstrup called the closure decision "a dangerous threat to our national security."
In its announcement that it will shutter American Centrifuge, the DOE announced the enrichment technologies developed at Piketon may be transferred to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
As recently as 20 years ago, the United States produced nearly 50 percent of the global supply of enriched uranium. Today, however, U.S. production accounts for only about 10 percent of the global supply, with Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Holland producing the bulk of the world's enriched uranium.
cuts in U.S. enrichment capability are "potentially causing" U.S. nuclear plants to become dependent on foreign fuel sources. U.S. enriched uranium also plays an important role in powering U.S. Navy submarines and aircraft carriers.

State Department says classified material on Hillary's home-brew server was so sensitive that...

Daily Mail ^ | 9/28/15 

State Department says classified material on Hillary's home-brew server was so sensitive that the safe it gave her lawyer to store the emails wasn't secure enough!

The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn't provide Hillary Rodham Clinton's lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn't anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret.

In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton's emails may have contained classified information.

But it said last week the safe wasn't suitable for so-called top secret, sensitive compartmented information, known as TS/SCI, which the government has said was found in some messages.

Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley on Sept. 22 that 'while the safe was suitable for up to [top secret] information, it was not approved for TS/SCI material' because the material wasn't held in a facility set up for discussing highly secret information, known as a SCIF, or sensitive compartmented information facility.

Hillary attends fundraiser hosted by convicted cocaine dealer [She just can't turn down a buck]

American Thinker ^ | 09/28/2015 | Thomas Lifson 

How low will she go? We already know that the Clinton Foundation has rather…uh…lax standards when it comes to accepting massive donations. But now Hillary Clinton has attended a campaign fundraiser at the home of a convicted drug dealer. Anita Kumar of McClatchy writes:

Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for president, attended a fundraiser in New York hosted by John Zaccaro, convicted on felony drug charges after he sold cocaine to an undercover cop.

The 1988 conviction of the son of unsuccessful Democratic vice presidential candidate Gerraldine Ferraro was reported in numerous publications at the time. But the arrest was unearthed Friday by the Republican National Committee.

“Hillary Clinton can’t seem to kick her decades-long habit of taking money from sketchy campaign contributors,” RNC spokesman Michael Short said. “During her last presidential campaign it was straw donors, now it’s convicted cocaine dealers.”

As Ed Lasky says, “She’s never been able to turn down a buck.” If only there were a word for women like that….

As Pope Francis flew back to Rome, President Obama issued a stern warning to Christians, warning them their attempts to assert their religious liberty to oppose gay rights would fail. “We affirm that we cherish our religious freedom and are profoundly respectful of religious traditions,” he insisted during a dramatic speech at a LGTB fundraiser in New York City on Sunday night, praising the progress made on gay rights under his administration. “But we also have to say clearly that our religious freedom doesn’t grant us the freedom to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.” The fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee was specifically billed as an “LGBT gala” held in New York City in coordination with Obama’s trip to the United Nations Assembly. During his speech, Obama asserted that his administration was respecting what he described as “genuine concerns” of religious institutions but suggested that Republicans were using the issue just to earn more votes, as they did in 2004. “America has left the leaders of the Republican Party behind,” he declared proudly. He ridiculed Ben Carson for suggesting that “prison turns you gay” and added that another Republican candidate had boasted of his introduction of a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, likely referring to Sen. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

The Case for Ben Carson Grows: Maybe the quiet man is already stronger than the loud man!

PJ Media ^ | 09/28/2015 | Roger L. Simon 

Early as it is, recent polls are beginning to tell us something about the 2016 presidential election.
For one thing, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that Jeb Bush will be the Republican nominee. Not only is he a weak fifth (at 7%) in the just released NBC/WSJ poll, Republicans, as of now anyway, just don’t like him. In a new Fox News poll, he has a net favorability rating (like/dislike) among GOP voters of a measly one percent.

For comparison, favorability ratings for Trump are +12, Cruz +21, Fiorina +30, Rubio +35, and Carson an unprecedented +52. Almost everybody likes him. (I thought Republicans were supposed to be bigots.) Carson is also creeping up behind Trump over all, only one point behind in the aforementioned NBC/WSJ poll, 21-20. (Fiorina and Rubio are tied for third at 11.)
Perhaps more telling, in another just released poll of North Carolina voters by Elon University, in a hypothetical NC general election matchup we find Trump losing to Clinton by 7%, but Clinton herself losing to Carson by 11%. That’s a huge 18 percent swing! (I don’t think you’ll find Donald bragging about that one on Hannity.)
Something is clearly going on here, Mr. Jones. But what is it? First off, voters have liked Dr. Carson from the beginning for his life story and his authenticity. But lately he has shown more than that. His statement that he would not support a Muslim for president — and then giving his reasons, specifically that sharia law with its legislated misogyny and homophobia, not to mention immutable fusion of church and state, is in direct contradistinction to our Constitution — has highlighted issues for the electorate that no other candidate has thus far dared to raise, at least to the level that Carson has. And he has resonated with the public on the subject across party lines. (In one poll, 51% agreed with Carson and 28% disagreed.)
Moreover, Carson is talking seriously about substantive ideological issues like taqiyya – the principle in both Shia and Sunni versions of sharia law allowing Muslims to lie to non-Muslims for the advancement of Islam — that rarely are discussed in political campaigns (or, for that matter, in Iran negotiations). The public, some small part of it anyway, is being educated.
Not surprisingly, this – dare we call it – uppityness on the part of the neurosurgeon has elicited a fair amount of cognitive dissonance or, in Andy McCarthy’s term, willful blindness from the liberal punditocracy. Jake Tapper on his Sunday show acted as if he could scarcely understand what Carson was saying, even though it is quite simple. Fortunately for us, CNN itself published a transcript. From Carson:
Let me tell you what I would advocate, I would advocate that people go back and look at the transcript of what I actually said. …I would have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam. If they are not willing to reject sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran. If they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would. I would ask you, would you be willing to do that? Would you be willing to advocate for somebody who would not do that? Probably not. …Is it possible that maybe the media thinks it’s a bigger deal than the American people do? Because American people, the majority of them, agree and they understand exactly what I am saying.
Thankfully, they do.
Now wise friends of mine still tell me that the former pediatric neurosurgeon cannot be president, even though he has done such pioneering things in the operating room and even though he is arguably the most extraordinary individual to run for president since Lincoln and Washington. And I understand what they’re saying. It would be something very different. But those same people were telling me that Trump could not be president months ago, until Trump showed he had staying power in the polls. We don’t know anything anymore. But what is clear is that Ben Carson is formidable. I would suggest that in this instance (as in many instances actually) the quiet man may emerge to be stronger than the loud man. Maybe he already he is.
And here’s something else for Republican voters to think about. Wouldn’t a Carson-Rubio ticket, or vice-versa, someone from the inside and someone from the outside, do more to destroy the despicable identity politics the Democratic Party has been exploiting to everyone’s detriment for generations than just about anything you could think of? It would upend all the reactionary nonsense Obama has stood for on symbolism alone. Worth pondering, no?
And, as Steve Jobs would say (hey, there’s a movie coming out), ONE MORE THING: Joe Trippi — a smart liberal pundit who is not a bad guy — has written an L.A. Times oped today insisting “No, pundits, Hillary is not collapsing.” Maybe he’s right. Maybe Sanders and Biden can’t really overcome her, unless, of course, she’s indicted. But the essence of what Joe T. is saying is that the ethnic (read: black) vote will save Hillary after she goes down in white-bread Iowa and New Hampshire, where her numbers look really bad. That, however, is all the more reason to put Carson on the Republican ticket (if he doesn’t get there by himself, which he well might). Ben would DESTROY Hillary in the general election. Besides the fact that he’s authentically black, as opposed to “Clinton black,” Ben’s already got Kanye West on his side. Game over!

Where 'gays' are heroes, pedophiles victims, Christians crazy

WND ^ | September 25, 2015 | Unattributed 

Experts say morality's continued 'evolution' has no limits!

Traditional morality regarding sex isn’t just collapsing, it’s being inverted.
Homosexuals, whose behavior once was illegal and reviled, are heroes. Pedophiles, considered among the lowest of the low for millennia, are being characterized as victims.
And if you think there’s something wrong about all of this, you might have a mental disorder.
It’s a perspective that Paul Kengor, a university professor, historian and author of “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage,” argues is being pursued aggressively by Democrats.
“Once upon a time, you would have never seen a piece like this in a mainstream leftist publication like Salon. For that matter, you would have never seen a piece arguing that same-sex marriage should not only be legalized but that those against redefining marriage are mere bigoted hatemongers, or that a florist or baker or photographer who begs not to service a same-sex wedding ceremony because of religious objections should be fined, shut down or even thrown in jail. You couldn’t find a Democrat anywhere in Washington who believed such insanity.
“Now, it’s a statement of faith for Democrats today.”
This weekend, director Roland Emmerich’s “Stonewall” opens in theaters, a cinematic tribute to the 1969 riots, a violent attack on police officers now widely celebrated as the beginning of the “gay” rights movement.
Both Emmerich and screenwriter Jon Rabin Baitz are homosexuals, and Emmerich has called for it to be the first of “many Stonewall films.”
The film ends with a dedication to the “unsung heroes of the Stonewall riots.” Ironically, the film is now being heavily criticized and even boycotted by some activists for not containing enough black and Hispanic characters, as the clientele of the Stonewall

John Boehner: Bad Speaker or Worst Speaker?

American THinker ^ | 9-28-2015 | C. Edumund Wright 

All you need to know about the failed speakership of John Boehner was exposed to the entire world by Boehner himself as he announced his resignation from Congress. The what, the how, and the why of his failures were succinctly explained when he said, “The first job of any Speaker is to protect this institution that we all love.”
Do what? Well, no wonder he was a disaster as speaker. He had no clue what the job description was. In just 15 words, everything about his disastrous reign was brought into laser-sharp focus. Never has someone so orange said so much with so few words and so many tears. When you're this out of touch and have abused this much power and wasted this many opportunities that have caused a nation great pain, there is no limit to the scorn you deserve.
And for the record, that "institution that we all love" comment may be the dumbest political statement since David Brooks proclaimed Barack Obama a great president on the strength of his pant crease. It's also a perfect bookend comment to some words he uttered through tears in November of 2010 as he was preparing to take the gavel without a clue what message the voters had just sent.
The salient point that Boehner made clear is that the country is here to serve the government. The important people are those in government. What else can his words possibly mean? When he said "the institution that we all love" – it's clear that we means the House of Cards Washington Cartel in the House. For damned sure, no one else has any love for that institution.

What The Hell Is An Angry Conservative Supposed To Do? ^ | September 28, 2015 | Kurt Schlichter 

Something is going to end up a smoldering ruin. Maybe it will be the whole country. Maybe it’ll just be the elite-run GOP. Hopefully it will be whatever painfully white, elderly, socialist creep the Democrats nominate. But regardless, I’m one of those many people who is so angry he just wants to see something burn.

Boehner down, plenty to go. Now is this reasonable? Is this a smart, savvy strategy? I’m not sure we even care anymore.

See, we’ve been shafted too long– these hacks can’t even keep the government from spending money on baby dismemberment – and someone or something has got to pay. I’d prefer it be the Democrats, but I’m happy to wreck unholy vengeance on the GOP elite that has lied to us, cheated us, and run away faster than Brave Sir Robin.

Which raises the question – what is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? Well, I don’t care if it’s African or European; I just want to roast it on a spit.

So where do we go now? Walker and Perry are out, two great guys with impeccable records. And, while I am sorry to see them go, I am not sorry to see them go now, because it seems clear they weren’t going to get the job done. And I want the job done, then I want the doer to take the cannoli.

We conservatives must choose between five categories of GOP candidates (with apologies to Hugh Hewitt, who started discussing his four categoriesabout the time I first started drafting this column). We can throw caution and conservatism to the wind and sign on with the super outsiders, Trump or Carson. We can go with one of the true conservatives, like Cruz or Jindal. We can go down to glorious defeat with a certifiable loser, like Santorum or Huckabee or Paul. We can go with Team Squish and sullenly fall in line, as our elite donor class betters command, for Jeb! or that nattering churchlady John Kasich. Or we can go with the straddlers, Rubio, Christie and Fiorina, who might be able to bring both the moderates and conservatives on board.


The outsiders shouldn’t be president. Sorry. Dr. Carson is a nice man who has no instinct for ripping out his opponents’ jugular. I want to hear some liberal womyn lamenting the crushing of our enemies, Doc, but you’d probably go and comfort them.

And then there’s Donald Trump, whose embarrassing debate performance started the trend of people saying, “You know, it was fun for a while but this guy has become tiresome.”

Trump has the aggression – that’s the only thing I like about him – but it’s also the only thing he has. The polls are showing that his novelty is wearing off; people can only deal with so much whining. He’ll always have a hardcore set of minions, but for the first time in weeks I don’t think we have to seriously contemplate the notion of Ivanka the veep.

Then there are the true conservatives. I like Bobby Jindal, but unlike most Americans, I know who he is.

I like Ted Cruz too. He’s a lawyer and usually talks like one. But I’m a lawyer and not a normal human being. I’ve seen him up close in the past and he seems to lack charisma. He’s not Gort in a pantsuit like Hillary, but he’s off-putting to people who don’t use words like “tort” in everyday conversation. Normal people may be repelled and frightened, though in his recent Colbert appearance he seemed uncomfortable but human. Still, as great as he is on policy (in fact, I don’t think anyone is better), I just don’t see him putting together 270 electoral votes in a country full of so many blithering idiots. Moreover, I expect the money he needs to beat Hillary will dry up because the treacherous GOP elite will collectively loosen its bowels if he’s nominated.

Sorry. I don’t see how Cruz wins, and crushing the Democrats is important. Now, if we gotta go down fighting, Cruz is a good hill to die on, but I’d prefer we not die in 2016. More precisely, I’d prefer my country not die, which I think a Hillary victory could very well lead to.

There’s no reason to spend time with the losers. Santorum and Huckabee are punchlines, and railing about sodomy is not a platform. Get a clue, Rick – no one likes you. Huckabee should stop acting like anyone cares about what Kim Davis thinks; all she does is prove that even annoying people can suffer injustice. Go back to covering “Free Bird” and hawking diabetes cures.

As for Rand Paul, well, whatever. Blame the Illuminati.

We come to the elite’s choices, Jeb! and Kasich. Ugh. Since I prefer my Republicans to actually be Republicans, that kind of eliminates the GOPers who support amnesty, Common Core, Obamacare, and gun control. Sure, they’ll deny all of that, but they lie. Sadly, Mitch McConnell and the French Army up on Capitol Hill ruined the squishes’ “Talk right, rule left” scam. If the elite wants to bet we won’t dare destroy the party and that we’ll fall into line with their puppets, I’ll see you and raise you the Whigs. I’ll vote for Trump before I vote for either of these tools. No kidding; I don’t think I can ever swallow voting for these jerks.

Oh, and what was the pre-debate thought process that led Kasich to steal Tom Skerrit’s hairstyle from Top Gun?

That just leaves the three potential straddlers of the conservative/moderate divide. I’m being kind by letting Christie in here. He’s much more establishment, and his new-found love of conservatism can’t erase the image of his Hurricane Sandy tonsil hockey tournament with Obama. So nope.

Marco Rubio. I could write a whole column on him and might do it down the road. There’s so much to like there, and so much that makes me want to slap him.

I keep wanting to like him, but then I keep remembering that he lied to us about amnesty. I want to hear it from him: “The default for illegal immigrants is going home. You never, ever, ever, get to be citizens because you disrespected us by breaking our laws.” Anything less, and he’s weaseling, and he weaseled once on us already; he should be on his knees shouting “I’m not worthy” in gratitude that we’d even consider allowing him to beg our forgiveness after that shameful Gang of 8 episode.

Oh, and he needs to stop being so damn prissy. I know the consultants are telling you Americans want to hear a “hopeful message,” but our definition of “hopeful message” is “I intend to destroy progressivism and crush its quasi-fascist adherents wherever they lurk.” That’s hope.

And learn from Donald Trump – did I say that? Stop sucking up to the media. Let’s practice:

Media Hack: “So, do you think Donald Trump should have corrected that random guy who thinks Obama is a Muslim?”

Rubio: “I think you liberal media hacks should stop asking me stupid questions. Why don’t you scurry off to the Hillary-o-tron and start asking it while it didn’t repudiate President Fail when he compared patriotic Americans to the mullahs for opposing his Iranian nuclear sell-out. Now get out of my face or I’ll slug you. Jerk.”

I’m sick of Rubio coming across like the kid who reminds the teacher she forgot to assign the homework. But on the plus side, he knows foreign policy and his wife is hot, so there’s that.

Which leaves Carly. She seems ticked off. I like that. She kicks tail. I like that too. She can put together a coherent sentence. Finally. I don’t despise her. That’s something new for a GOP candidate. And, best of all, I think the elite distrusts her and Hillary fears her – in fact, she could mop the floor with the Orange Pantsuit Lady.

Yeah, maybe Carly.


But if not her, and if there’s no one else, then I’m still ready to burn it all down.

Hillary Signalling More Email 'Stuff' Will Come Out!

NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein 

Don't put that popcorn-popper away just yet . . . On today's Morning Joe, Chuck Todd said he felt that in his Meet the Press interview of Hillary Clinton yesterday, she was signalling to her Dem supporters that there could be more damaging revelations to come on the email scandal.
Todd was alluding to the moment in the interview in which Hillary agreed with his characterization of a "drip, drip, drip" aspect to the scandal. When Todd asked whether she could "reassure Democrats that there's nothing else here," Hillary's answer was a very un-reassuring "there's only so much I can control."

John Boehner vs. the 'crazies': Should GOP just let tea party win?

The Christian Science Monitor ^ | September 27, 2015 | Mark Sappenfield, Staff writer 

John Boehner is leaving as speaker because he can't control the tea party. Should the whole GOP give in? It has happened before.
The Republican Party is barreling head-first toward a worst-case scenario – or is that a best-case scenario?
The tea party wing of the party has essentially toppled House Speaker John Boehner. His replacement will almost certainly need the tea party's stamp of approval.
Meanwhile, the Republican presidential campaign continues to confound the establishment. Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz together have more support than all other Republican candidates combined, according to polls....

Top GOP official seeks McConnell ouster as Senate leader ‘GOP brand is being damaged!

The Washington Times ^ | 09/28/15 | Ralph Z. Hallow 

With John Boehner now departing as House speaker, an influential Republican Party official is now seeking the ouster of another GOP leader who has frustrated conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.
Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus.
“Mitch is a good and honorable guy, but the base is leaving our party,” Mr. Villere said in an interview with The Washington Times. “I’m out in the field all the time and we have all our elections this year for state offices, and it’s hurting us tremendously with our elections.”
Aides for Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, did not return repeated calls and emails seeking comment. A spokeswoman for Mr. Priebus said he was unavailable Sunday.
Egged on by irate rank-and-file GOP voters, a conservative rump group in the House GOP caucus forced Mr. Boehner’s sudden announcement on Friday that he will resign his post and his House seat as well next month.
An ideological irony is that his probable replacement, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the current House majority leader, is closer politically to Mr. Boehner than to the more ideologically passionate members who were prepared to call for a no-confidence vote on Mr. Boehner as speaker.
The same may hold true for Mr. McConnell in the Senate. Though he is not considered likely to resign, there is no one in his chamber whom conservatives seem ready to unite behind as an alternative.
