DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY – KERRY’S STATE DEPT. FUNNELED MORE THAN $9 MILLION TO HIS DAUGHTER’S FOUNDATION

We’ve had so many years of this mess! It’s one tiring scandal after the next coming out of the government? So, then – WHY Hillary? Seriously – WHY? Don’t Americans want change?

The Daily Caller reports – More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

The Department of State funded a Peace Corps program created by Dr. Vanessa Kerry and officials from both agencies, records show. The Peace Corps then awarded the money without competition to a nonprofit Kerry created for the program.

Initially, the Peace Corps awarded Kerry’s group — now called Seed Global Health — with a three-year contract worth $2 million of State Department money on Sept. 10, 2012, documents show. Her father was then the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which oversees both the Department of State and the Peace Corps.

KERRY’S DAUGHTER GOT SIX FIGURE SALARY FROM ORG FUNDED BY DADDY

Some folks are born to wave the flag, others are born to be the daughter of an anti-war traitor senator collecting six figures from an organization funded by the part of government that daddy happens to run.

More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

The Department of State funded a Peace Corps program created by Dr. Vanessa Kerry and officials from both agencies, records show. The Peace Corps then awarded the money without competition to a nonprofit Kerry created for the program.

Initially, the Peace Corps awarded Kerry’s group — now called Seed Global Health — with a three-year contract worth $2 million of State Department money on Sept. 10, 2012, documents show. Her father was then the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which oversees both the Department of State and the Peace Corps.

Seed secured a four-year extension in September 2015, again without competition. This time, the Peace Corps gave the nonprofit $6.4 million provided by the Department of State while John Kerry was secretary of state.

What did this mean for Vanessa?

Kerry drew a salary from Seed for the first time in 2014. She was the only officer listed on the nonprofit’s 990 tax form to receive compensation — some $140,000 for a reported 30 hours per week.

By this time, daddy was Secretary of State. Which was certainly convenient. It’s also interesting when you have an organization with only one compensated officer.
What does Kerry’s organization do? It exploits student debt to recruit volunteers.

Recognizing that many US health professionals face financial barriers to service, Seed offers the only US loan repayment program for international service. The average US physician graduates from medical school today with more than $170,000 in educational debt; other applicants may have home mortgages or other obligations that would make a GHSP assignment impossible or difficult to accept. Seed believes that debt should not be a barrier to public service and provides up to $30,000 in needs-based assistance for each year served.

You know, debt for people who unlike Vanessa Kerry weren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouths. So they get to do “volunteer” slave labor.

Vanessa Kerry was last in the headlines due to her Iran link.

POLITICS TOP STORY Hillary’s Benghazi Emails To “Diane Reynolds” Released… True Identity Exposed

hcc21

Closer examination of Hillary Clinton’s emails may have yielded plenty of answers, but they’ve also yielded plenty of questions. Why did she need “one device?” Did Russia hack in to her email account? And who the heck is Diane Reynolds?

According to WikiLeaks, what sounds like Debbie Reynolds’ less-talented sister (think the Ashley Simpson of the early 1960s) was actually Hillary’s own daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

No less than 67 emails were exchanged between Secretary Clinton and Ms. Reynolds, who happened to be her own daughter.
While a lot of these were harmless, some of them had to do with sensitive political situations like the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on an American diplomatic mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya — an attack that Clinton clearly knew that day was not the result of random protests over an anti-Islam video that got out of hand.

“Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked and a young communications officer on temporary duty w a wife and two young children,” Clinton wrote to “Reynolds” in one email. “Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow.”

She also mentioned the chaos in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake there.POLITICS TOP STORY

Firstly: “Diane Reynolds?” What, were Johnny Ross and Carlotta Valdez already taken?

Secondly, Hillary Clinton has maintained strenuously that she believed her personal email server was impregnable. However, at the same time, her daughter used a fake name on it. In other words, either she or her daughter knew full well the risk that she was taking by having her emails being delivered by an unsecured server.

Thirdly, let’s point out that this isn’t the first time Clinton has told her daughter things that the American people weren’t privileged to — things that would have changed votes.

Take Benghazi. It’s already been proven that Hillary told Chelsea — oops, sorry, Diane — that the attack was a coordinated terrorist strike. And she did it via email, the same medium your parents usually use to tell you that your retired dad finally completed that tiny birdhouse that he’s worked on for years and has now moved on to cataloging the Houston Oilers games he recorded on VHS back in the 1980s.
The problems with this should be self-evident to our media, except they’re not — which is the reason why Hillary Clinton is the Democrat nominee.

Let’s hope we stop this wannabe familial dynasty in its tracks this year. Otherwise, in another decade or so we’ll be voting for Diane Reynolds.

Muslim attack on flag-waving American family remains mystery

by Leo Hohmann

momma-burqa
Amina Ali Ahra is a Muslim immigrant from Africa, charged with simple battery for attacking a family simply because she didn’t like their American flag.
It’s been two weeks since an Atlanta-area mother and her daughter were attacked at their home by a burqa-clad Muslim woman who stole the American flag from their front yard and charged at them, swinging the flagpole at the mother’s head.

The family says their lives have been turned upside down by the attack, and they don’t go anywhere now unless armed. Two weeks later, they say they’re still waiting for answers from their local police chief and the FBI.

Who attacked them and why?

Dami Arno and her husband, Jimmy of Lawrenceville, Georgia, told WND they are now wondering whether justice will ever be served.

And they want to know why Dami’s attacker – a woman believed to be an immigrant from Somalia – is not being charged with a hate crime. They also want to know why their attacker’s immigration status is being guarded like a state secret while they, the victims, are being ignored by authorities.

Read WND’s initial report on the attack detailing how more than 4,000 Somali Muslim ‘refugees’ have been resettled into the Atlanta area since the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Dami and Jimmy Arno said the Lawrenceville police officer who responded to the May 31 incident told them he could not remove the assailant’s burqa “because that would violate her civil rights.”

image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2012/05/Burqa32.jpg

The Muslim burqa is a full veiling of the female body, leaving only the woman’s eyes and feet visible.
It seems, the Arnos told WND, that the immigrant has more “rights” than they do as Americans who were the victim of an attack for no other reason than that the Muslim woman apparently didn’t like the large American flag flying from their mailbox.

All that is known about the female attacker is her name, and even that has changed over the course of the last two weeks.

Amina Ali Ahra, 30, emerged from the woods behind the Arnos’ home on the morning after Memorial Day as Dami Arno and her daughter were drinking coffee and chatting in their garage. The woman, standing about 6-foot-3 and dressed in a burqa, came out of the woods with only her eyes showing from behind the veil.

Ahra snatched the family’s flag off of their mailbox and used the pole as if it were a police night stick. She swung the four-foot pole made of PVC pipe wildly toward Dami’s head but missed.

“She came charging at me swinging it back and forth, actually coming toward my head with the flagpole, and I grabbed the pole and yanked it and was able to get control of her. And my daughter said I had her in a headlock,” said Dami Arno, a 42-year-old stay-at-home mother of two. “I could not believe what was happening, but at some point my mother instincts kicked in.

“My husband is a mechanic, and I work right beside him doing pretty much everything he does, and that’s made me very, very strong,” she added. “I thank God every day now that my husband has taught me and my kids to defend ourselves.”

The Muslim woman did not utter a word during the assault, said Arno, who was left with bruises on her arms.

What do YOU think? What comes to mind when you hear “Islam”? Sound off in today’s WND poll

Now WND has learned that another woman in the neighborhood was approached the night before by a woman in a burqa. She was afraid and ran into her house but did not report the stranger in the small, two-street neighborhood because she feared she would be considered a “racist.”

Since the attack, Jimmy Arno said he has twice called Lawrenceville Police Chief Randy Johnson, trying to set up a meeting in which the chief could provide information on his wife’s attacker. The chief has yet to call him back, he said.

Lawrenceville-family

Dami Arno with her daughter Brittany, 17, and son Chuck, 14. The son held a gun on his mother and sister’s Muslim attacker until police arrived.
Ahra was charged with two counts of simple battery and giving false information to police. She apparently lied about her name and address in the initial interviews.

“I called the chief the day it happened, as soon as I got off work and left him a message. My wife friended his wife on Facebook, and we left her a message on Facebook,” Jimmy Arno told WND. “I told him we didn’t like the charges that were filed, and I think more charges are warranted, and I want a call back. He still hasn’t called.”

A local officer told Arno the case was turned over to the FBI for possible hate-crime charges. An agent named Chuck Campo was “look into” the case, but no one from the FBI has contacted the family to interview them about what happened.

“We are trying to get a hold of him,” Jimmy Arno said. “I want to know whatever he knows. I want Chuck Campo to sit down with us in our kitchen with his files and I want some answers.”

WND contacted Lawrenceville Chief Randy Johnson, who denied he had received any voicemail messages from the Arnos.

“I have not heard from them,” the chief said. “I have not received a call of any type from them, no voicemail or email.”

Johnson said he has “no idea what they want to meet about.”

He said he does not know the alleged attacker’s country of origin. Nor does he know her motive for attacking a family flying a flag.

“I do not have those answers, Sir,” he told WND. “I do not know (what country she is from).”

As for the charges, he said they were “appropriate.”

“We charged them with what we felt was appropriate. There’s not a hate-crime law in Georgia. And the FBI has been contacted, and they’re gonna look at it to see if in fact she could be charged federally.

“I wasn’t out there to see exactly what happened,” the chief continued. “From what I’ve seen and what I know about the case, I feel like she was charged appropriately. The FBI has been contacted. They’re looking at this, and if they see the need for her to be charged federally for a hate crime, then they will in fact pursue those charges.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which supposedly monitors and tracks “hate crimes” in the United States, has been missing in action.

Jimmy Arno says his family has received support from people across America on their Facebook page. But he doesn’t expect any hate-crime charges to come out of the Obama Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who has vowed to prosecute Americans who speak out critically against Muslims in the wake of Islamic terror attacks (she was later forced to walk back the comments).

“If it had been the other way around, Barack Obama would have gone to their house and apologized to them, and charged us,” Jimmy Arno said.

He believes, at the very least, the Muslim woman should have been slapped with the additional charges of trespassing, felony assault and destruction of private property.

“I’ve taught my kids to respect people of all nationalities and all races until they don’t deserve your respect,” he said. “We’re not racist people. If that woman had appeared in a burqa and asked for a cup of coffee, she would have been drinking coffee in the garage rather than in a fight. That’s the kind of people we are.

“I don’t know what the answer is. I just know that the day after Memorial Day, our lives changed.”

Ahra remains in the Gwinnett County jail, police said.

Capt. Greg Vaughan, spokesman for Lawrenceville Police, told WND the police could not charge Ahra with assault with a deadly weapon because the flagpole, made of PVC pipe, was not capable of causing death.

Asked if Ahra spoke with a Somali or other foreign accent, Vaughan said, “I don’t know.”

Dami Arno said she has a friend who works at the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office who told her the attacker was of Somali origin living in the U.S. on some type of visa or possibly a green card.

WND also called the Sheriff’s Office and was told they could not give out the immigration status.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman told WND in an email that the agency has had “no contact” with Ahra.

“This individual is not subject to an ICE detainer,” said ICE spokesman Bryan Cox. “As such, this agency has no contact with her.

“While I can’t discuss this person’s information, I can tell you that, in general, if a person were in the country unlawfully a battery charge would typically warrant the issuance of an ICE detainer; which, again, has not been issued.”

That means Ahra was likely a legal resident of the United States, possibly a refugee from Africa, most likely Somalia. She originally told police the day of the incident she was “from Africa.”

Dami Arno said she fought off her attacker and wrestled her to the ground. Two neighbors arrived to help, pinning the large woman down until police arrived.

“The four of us sat on her until the police got there,” she said. “It felt like an hour. The report said they arrived in three minutes, but it felt like forever.”

Her son came out with the family pistol and was ready to fire if the woman had not been wrestled to the ground.

“He did everything right. He showed restraint by not shooting her. He did everything he was supposed to do,” Jimmy Arno said of his son. “Now I just want my government to do what it is supposed to do.”

He said he’s not expecting the Obama administration to commend his son for his bravery or to call his wife to offer a consoling word.

“My daughter, Brittany, talked about Clock Boy,” said Dami Arno. “He made a clock that looked like a bomb, and he got invited to the White House. We got attacked, my son had to defend me, and we haven’t gotten so much as a phone call.”

Jimmy Arno said the attack has changed the family’s outlook on life. The peaceful subdivision on the outskirts of town has changed, too.

“But I’m changed,” he added. “We don’t move to a different room in the house without asking, ‘Do you have the gun?’ I call home 10 or 12 times before lunch to make sure my wife and kids are OK. I shouldn’t have to do that. I shouldn’t have to mow the grass with a gun strapped to my side.”

Dami Arno said she and her daughter still have nightmares about the attack and how it could have turned out differently.

“I mean, how many times do you stand there and watch someone attack you from your own driveway, and how many times does a 14-year-old boy have to pull a gun?” she asked. “He has been trained, but it’s still traumatic. He still questions whether he did the right thing. He does get reassurance, but it’s hard on a 14-year-old boy. But he did have the decision-making skills to say, ‘Nope, she hasn’t taken my momma down yet, so I’m not gonna shoot her.’”

Jimmy Arno said he did get one small bit of satisfaction. When he arrived home early from work, the police still had Ahra on site in their patrol car.

“I grabbed a brand new flag and put on the flagpole and put back up, right there with her watching. It had to happen,” Jimmy Arno said. “It was important for her to know, OK, you’re not going to come in here and stop us in this neighborhood from flying the American flag.”

He’s also proud of his son.

“I know my son is gonna have my back when I’m not here,” he said. “Knowing he will protect his momma and sister makes me proud. My wife is 42 years old and never been in a fight before in her life, but the flag, here at this house, it means something.”

His wife agrees. The flag is to be defended.

“We’ve got to figure out what we can do to stop them (from attacking) because, as an American, I’m not going down like that and not giving up,” Dami Arno said. “The people who fought and died to make us free are just too important to just give up and let them win.”

Turks rape and kill while German cops bust speeders

polizei-anzeige-f-deutsche-tuerken-schlagen-dt-her

by Ana Marie Ballesteros

All my life I have experienced them as aggressive people. And they have no interest in our culture and hate us. They are in Germany only to get welfare and because of the immigration policy we all reject.
Even after decades, many Turks (like Mexicans in America) make little effort to learn the language of the White natives, and slaughter German grammar without compunction — as well as German people! Their accent is atrocious and sounds like neanderthals talking. In many areas, 50% of Turks are on welfare and have literally no skills after the German taxpayer has put them through high school.
They sell drugs, attack German men, rape German women, and engage in polygamy and killing their daughters if they marry the wrong guy (“honor killing”).
What is your opinion on Tuskish being unable to assimilate in Germany? Have you ever been in trouble with Turks? Have you ever about Turks being involved in criminal activities?
I’m not intented to offend anyone, just expressing my opinion)

Eliminating Public Sector Unions Will Eliminate the Power of The Left…

110317_wisconsin_woman_ap_328
“The real lesson of Wisconsin is that the Republican Party is at its strongest and greatest when it acts as a revolutionary liberation movement, breaking apart the power relationships of the Democratic Party that stifle people’s personal, economic and religious lives.

The Democratic Party has made it its mandate to politicize and collectivize the personal. It has done this to militarize every area of life, to transform all human activities into a battlefield and to bring every area of life under the aegis of its power relationships. These power relationships form its infrastructure, fusing together governmental and non-governmental organizations, to form the true ruling class.

These power relationships act as dams, walling up human energy into organizational structures, they create the mandates that provide power and money to the organizations, which are fed throughout the infrastructure to create a massive cage of bureaucrats, activists and think-tanks that set the agenda, which becomes law, and is then enforced by governments at every level.

The base activity of the left is organizational. Organizing a group dams it up. The organizers harvest its energy and use it to power their infrastructure. The purpose of a group is to draw money and power into the organization from outside and inside. Money and power are drawn from the inside through dues and member obedience. Money and power are drawn from the outside through leverage exercised by making demands on behalf of the group.”

CLINTON DELETED ALL EMAILS

hillary2015

by Garth Kant
WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton permanently deleted all of the emails on her private server by wiping it clean, according to the committee investigating Benghazi.

Clinton has turned over more than 900 pages of emails to the House Select Committee on Benghazi, but it had requested many additional emails.

Instead, Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a statement Friday evening, not only did Clinton not turn over any new documents, she deleted her remaining emails.

“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Gowdy said.

Clinton kept all her official correspondence as Secretary of State, as well as her personal emails, on that server.

Clinton gave 55,000 emails from her private email account to the State Department in December. On March 10, Clinton announced she had deleted 30,000 emails she considered personal.

Now, they all have been deleted.

“Secretary Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server. While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” Gowdy said.

“Not only was the Secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest,” he added.

Clinton also refused Gowdy’s request to turn over her server to a third-party.

“In light of the Secretary’s unprecedented email arrangement with herself and her decision nearly two years after she left office to permanently delete all emails … we will work with the leadership of the House of Representatives as the Committee considers next steps,” said Gowdy.

The committee plans to have Clinton testify twice, once on her emails use at the State Department and again on her role in the Benghazi debacle.

Here is the full statement released just after 6:00 p.m. by select committee on Benghazi.

Statement Regarding Subpoena Compliance and Server Determination by Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Washington, DC—Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy today issued the following statement regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response to the committee’s subpoena. She failed to produce a single new document and refused to relinquish her server to a neutral, detached third party for an independent review of potential public records:

“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis.

“We learned today, from her attorney, Secretary Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server. While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department.

“Not only was the Secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest.”

“In light of the Secretary’s unprecedented email arrangement with herself and her decision nearly two years after she left office to permanently delete all emails and because the equities at stake involve not only those of the Select Committee and Congress more broadly, but also those of the American people and their right to the full record of her tenure as secretary of State, we will work with the leadership of the House of Representatives as the Committee considers next steps. But it is clear Congress will need to speak with the former Secretary about her email arrangement and the decision to permanently delete those emails.”

Government Says It Lost “Only” $9.26 Billion On Auto Bailout

By kevin Glass

cliff
A Department of the Treasury report this week released some of its final numbers on the auto industry bailout, with good news: “only” $9.26 billion was flushed down the drain bailing out America’s labor union-dominated auto industry.
As the Detroit Free press reports:

Taxpayers lost $9.26 billion on the U.S. government’s automotive industry rescue program, according to a final tally released by U.S. Treasury this week… The government said it recovered $70.42 billion of the $79.68 billion it gave to General Motors, Chrysler, Ally Financial, Chrysler Financial and automotive suppliers through the federal Auto Industry Financing Program.

The government lost money, but far less than initially expected when the program was launched in 2009.

Of course, President Obama himself was consistently telling Americans that “GM has repaid every taxpayer dollar my administration” lent to them in the auto bailout program. That is, of course, a blatant lie.

And the Treasury Department isn’t exactly the most reliable source of numbers here, considering they’re led by political apointees beholden to President Obama. The Congressional Budget Office, for example, has historically put out different numbers than Treasury, showing the bailout to be in worse shape. The nearly $10 billion loss might be understating it.

The real test will be if GM and the other companies continue to survive or continue to need bailouts. As Jim Pethokoukis wrote for AEI last year:

Bailing out a failing company is a lot easier than turning around a troubled company so it once again makes a quality product… Washington didn’t save GM, if by “GM” you mean an innovating, value-adding, self-sustaining automaker. That’s just not something government really knows how to do.

GM has proved to be in dire straits. They had a disastrous recall in 2014, and they’ve struggled to produce midsize cars that compete even close to the same level as Japan’s leading Camry and Civic products. Maybe we’ll end up having lost “only” $10 billion. In a counterfactual world, though, the U.S. automakers might already be producing beter products. And in the real world, we may have just wasted a truckload of money delaying the inevitable.

GOP, It’s Time To Bring Down The Hammer On Obama Corruption!

by Ben Crystalcorruption1
Barring a late-season push, the Democrats are heading into this fall’s midterm elections looking at a near total loss. President Barack Obama is dragging down his party’s image like a battleship anchor lashed to a rowboat.
Direct assaults on Americans’ individual liberties, once laughed off as “phony” by the Democratic ownership, have clung to the headlines like a particularly virulent fungus, mostly because Obama and his minions have a bad habit of doubling down when they get caught lying. But most importantly, the Democrats’ willful refusal to acknowledge that they’re not the only ones whose opinions count has infuriated Americans to no end. Yet the Republicans appear to be doing everything they can to keep the Dems in the game. At this point, as the country reels from yet another race-infused nightmare made infinitely worse by the machinations of Obama and his ilk, the only reason the Democrats are still in the midterm electoral fight is GOP hesitation to deliver the knockout blow.
Obviously, the biggest violator of the public trust is Obama himself. His scandal-plagued regime’s tendency to launch vicious attacks on his perceived enemies not only has produced the still-unresolved Obamacare fraud debacle, the Benghazi nightmare, the NSA domestic spying scandal, the outrageous use of the IRS as a political weapon and a foreign policy as confused as it is impotent; but it also has produced a presidency that is every bit as detached and isolated from the people it purportedly serves as the Hollywood bobbleheads are from the shmoes who buy tickets to sit through their dreck. Nonetheless, beyond the efforts of dedicated public servants like Congressmen Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the Republicans have made almost no effort to return justice to the fore. Instead, they’re suing the president.
Oh, how I loathe the idea of suing Obama. When dealing with a self-styled despot of such low character, a mere lawsuit just seems too small. The guy didn’t back over the mailbox; he backed over the entire U.S. Constitution. The image of House Speaker John Boehner and the rest of his blue-suited lawyer buddies sitting in the hallway of some courthouse waiting for some slip-and-fall case to finish up so they can play the lawsuit lottery strikes me as positively surreal. Moreover, seeing Boehner and his lieutenants filing into a courtroom like disgraced former Senator John Edwards and his ambulance-chaser choir is just plain funny.
Better remedies for a rogue executive exist, up to and including impeachment. However, as long as sociopaths like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are allowed to wander the halls of the Capitol with impunity, impeachment will flatline worse than Michael Moore in a CrossFit competition. Plus, impeachment would let far too many people off the hook.
I say it’s high time Congress goes old school on the White House. I’m talking Richard Nixon-era action — “Dirty” Harry Callahan interrogating a suspect or John Shaft going upside some sucka’s head! The president of the United States and a number of his accomplices represent a clear and present danger to the lives, the liberties and the pursuits of happiness of every American — even the ones who voted for him. When Nixon’s administration got caught trying to cover up its criminal activities, people went to prison. Obama and his henchmen have been caught trying to cover up a criminal empire, and not one of them has had their ticket punched for a stay in the big house.
Instead of some endless, special prosecutor-filled, mind-numbingly debated impeachment hearings, let’s see Congress drag every one of the Obama minions who got caught flouting the law onto the mat for a full-on, prison-yard beatdown.
Bring Attorney General Eric Holder back and punish him for his role in — and lies about — Operation Fast and Furious, which resulted in a significantly higher number of deaths than the Ferguson, Missouri, incident, albeit with fewer Jesse Jackson fundraising speeches.
Duckwalk back IRS stooges John Koskinen and Lois Lerner for their offensively cavalier — and incredibly stupid — attempts to whitewash what is a growing firestorm over the IRS harassment of innocent Americans.
Frog-march back former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for violations of the Hatch Act, not to mention Obamacare’s trillion-dollar excesses.
Pinch former ambassador and current National Security Adviser Susan Rice — and even squirrely little mouthpieces like former White House press secretary Jay Carney and his successor, Josh Earnest — and bring them up to Capitol Hill in handcuffs.
Hell, go all in. Get a warrant and make President Executive Orders himself do a perp walk. Unlike Obama — who overstepped his bounds in his executive orders on immigration, Obamacare (the post-passage changes for which he’s being sued) and so-called “global warming” — Congress actually does have the power to issue arrest warrants.
The Democrats would scream bloody murder. They would pivot from their usual yammering about racism, sexism and any other “-ism” they can dream up to screech like howler monkeys at the affront to the dignity of the office of the presidency. They’d accuse anyone and everyone they could of undermining the executive. They’d shriek about Congress overstepping its bounds. And — of course — they’d play the race card.
And here’s how the Republicans should respond: “So?”
The affront to the dignity of the office of the presidency presented by criminal charges would be nothing compared to the affront presented by Obama’s six-year house party. When the executive deliberately and illegally undermines Congress — as it has with Obamacare, the immigration ploys and upcoming U.N. “name and shame” global warming sham — I didn’t hear of too many Democrats wringing their hands over the offenses. And the old tack of smearing your opponents as “racist” is just plain sad.
Would all the arrests result in convictions? Probably not. Some of them might not even hold up in court. Neither did Obama’s attempt to force taxpayers to fund abortions, but the victims of that end run around the 1st Amendment still had to fight all the way to the Supreme Court just to beat it back. And again, I say: “So?”
If the Republicans start playing hardball, who will they send running for the hills? The Democrats are already conditioned to reflexively hate anyone of whom and anything of which their fuehrers don’t approve, so they’re not likely to swing back. Meanwhile, the conservative base would be energized, and the fence-sitters would finally hear a better campaign slogan than this: “Vote GOP! We’re Slightly Less Appalling!”
To the Republicans: Heed the wisdom of the ages, “Go big or go home.” And to the Democrats: Heed the other wisdom of the ages, “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.

Heil Obama – Federal Government to Track Politically “Misleading Ideas” and “Hate Speech” on Twitter

Posted by: Barry Secrest

Refocus Notes:

Monitoring hate speech–To be administered by college academians….Hey! What could go wrong?

This impetus is all about eradicating any ideas which do not conform to those currently in power…..as tried many times in the past, one particular example is just below.

The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”

The university has received $919,917 so far for the project.

“The project stands to benefit both the research community and the public significantly,” the grant states. “Our data will be made available via [application programming interfaces] APIs and include information on meme propagation networks, statistical data, and relevant user and content features.”

“The open-source platform we develop will be made publicly available and will be extensible to ever more research areas as a greater preponderance of human activities are replicated online,” it continues. “Additionally, we will create a web service open to the public for monitoring trends, bursts, and suspicious memes.”

“This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the grant said.

“Truthy,” which gets its name from Stephen Colbert, will catalog how information is spread on Twitter, including political campaigns.

“While the vast majority of memes arise in a perfectly organic manner, driven by the complex mechanisms of life on the Web, some are engineered by the shady machinery of high-profile congressional campaigns,” according to the website….
“Truthy” claims to be non-partisan. However, the project’s lead investigator Filippo Menczer proclaims his support for numerous progressive advocacy groups, including President Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action, Moveon.org, Greenpeace, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International, and True Majority.

Menczer, a professor of informatics and computer science at Indiana University, links to each of the organizations on his personal page from his bio at the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research.

The government-funded researchers hope that the public will use their tool in the future to report on other Twitter users.

“Truthy uses a sophisticated combination of text and data mining, social network analysis, and complex networks models,” the website adds. “To train our algorithms, we leverage crowdsourcing: we rely on users like you to flag injections of forged grass-roots activity. Therefore, click on the Truthy button when you see a suspicious meme!”

The project also seeks to discover why certain Internet memes go viral and others do not. Funding is not expected to expire until June 30, 2015.

Obama to the Rescue – of Hamas

Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. Hamas

Operation Protective Edge is now two weeks old. Since the ground offensive began Thursday night, we have begun to get a better picture of just how dangerous Hamas has become in the nine years since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip. And what we have learned is that the time has come to take care of this problem. It cannot be allowed to fester or grow anymore.

We have known for years that tunnels were a central component of Hamas’s logistical infrastructure.

What began as the primary means of smuggling weapons, trainers and other war material from Hamas’s sponsors abroad developed rapidly into a strategic tool of offensive warfare against Israel.

As we have seen from the heavily armed Hamas commando squads that have infiltrated into Israel from tunnels since the start of the current round of warfare, the first goal of these offensive tunnels is to deploy terrorists into Israel to massacre Israelis.

But the tunnels facilitate other terror missions as well.

Israel has found tunnels with shafts rigged with bombs located directly under Israeli kindergartens.

If the bombs had gone off, the buildings above would have been destroyed, taking the children down with them.

Other exposed shafts showed Hamas’s continued intense interest in hostage taking. In 2006 the terrorists who kidnapped Cpl. Gilad Schalit entered Israel and returned to Gaza through such a tunnel.

Today the presence of sedatives and multiple sets of handcuffs for neutralizing hostages found in tunnel after tunnel indicate that Hamas intends to abduct several Israelis at once and spirit them back to Gaza.

In an interview with Channel 2 Monday evening, Minister Naftali Bennett spoke of a mother at Kibbutz Netiv Ha’asara who told him that her children wake her in the middle of the night and tell her that they hear digging beneath their beds.

As Bennett said, this state of affairs simply cannot continue. People cannot live in fear that there are terrorists burrowing beneath their homes, digging tunnels to murder or kidnap them.

These tunnels must be found and destroyed not merely because they constitute a physical danger to thousands of Israelis. They must be located and destroyed, and Hamas’s capacity to rebuild them must be eliminated because the very idea that they exist makes a normal life impossible for those immediately threatened.

Hamas’s tunnels are also the key component of their command and control infrastructure inside Gaza.

Hamas’s political and military commanders are hiding in them. The reinforced bunkers and tunnel complexes enable Hamas’s senior leadership to move with relative freedom and continue planning and ordering attacks.

The sophistication of the tunnels and the malign intentions of Hamas are not in the least surprising.

But Hamas’s rapid advances in both tunnel and missile technology are deeply worrisome. At a minimum, they indicate that if it is allowed to end the current round of fighting as a coherent, relatively well-armed terrorist army, Hamas will be able to rapidly rebuild and expand its capabilities.

As a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas is not a stand-alone terror group. It is part of a much larger web of Islamic jihadist terror groups including al-Qaida and its affiliates as well as the Shi’ite Hezbollah. Like Hamas, all of these threaten several major Sunni Arab states.

Due to their recognition of the threat Hamas and its allies pose to the survivability of their regimes, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have taken the unprecedented step of supporting Israel’s efforts to defeat Hamas.

They understand that a decisive Israeli blow against Hamas in Gaza will directly benefit them. Not only will Hamas be weakened, but its state sponsors and terrorist comrades will be weakened as well.

Presently, Hamas’s most outspoken state sponsors are Qatar and Turkey.

As Israel’s Calcalist newspaper reported earlier this week, Qatar is Hamas’s biggest and most important financier, a role it plays as well for ISIS, al Nusra, the Muslim Brotherhood and various jihadist groups in Libya.

Turkey for its part is aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Like Qatar, Turkey has also been a major supporter of ISIS and al Nusra, as well as Hamas. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s slander against Israel has grown so hysterical in recent weeks that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who has been trying to downplay Turkey’s animosity, called him out on his open anti-Semitism.

By Tuesday morning, IDF forces in Gaza had destroyed 23 tunnels. The number of additional tunnels is still unknown.

While Israel had killed 183 terrorists, it appeared that most of the terrorists killed were in the low to middle ranks of Hamas’s leadership hierarchy.

Hamas’s senior commanders, as well as its political leadership have hunkered down in hidden tunnel complexes.

In other words, Israel is making good progress.

But it hasn’t completed its missions. It needs several more days of hard fighting.

Recognizing this, Israel’s newfound Muslim allies have not been pushing for a cease-fire.

In contrast, the Obama administration is insisting on concluding a cease-fire immediately.

As Israel has uncovered the scope of Hamas’s infrastructure of murder and terror, the US has acted with the UN, Turkey and Qatar to pressure Israel (and Egypt) to agree to a cease-fire and so end IDF operations against Hamas before the mission is completed.

To advance this goal, US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Cairo on Monday night with an aggressive plan to force on Israel a cease-fire Hamas and its state sponsors will accept.

As former ambassador to the US Michael Oren told the media, it is clear that neither Israel nor Egypt invited Kerry to come over. Their avoidance of Kerry signals clearly that the US’s two most important allies in the Middle East do not trust US President Barack Obama’s intentions.

And their distrust is entirely reasonable.

The State Department has openly applauded Turkey and Qatar for their involvement in attempts to achieve a cease-fire. Last week Israeli officials alleged that the US was responsible for Hamas’s rejection of the Egyptian cease-fire proposal. By attempting to coerce Egypt to accept Qatar and Turkey as its partners in mediation, Obama signaled to Hamas’s leaders that they should hold out for a better deal.

Due to Turkey’s membership in NATO and the glamour of the Qatari royal family, many Westerners find it hard to believe that they are major sponsors of terrorism. But it is true. Turkey and Qatar are playing a double game.

While sending his ambassador to Brussels for NATO meetings, Erdogan has been transforming Turkey from an open, pro-Western society allied with Israel into a closed, anti-Semitic and anti-American society that sponsors Hamas, ISIL, al Nusra and other terrorists groups.

As for Qatar, the tiny natural gas superpower presents itself to Americans as their greatest ally in the Muslim world. The emirate gives hundreds of millions of dollars to US universities to open campuses in Doha and pretends it is a progressive, open society, replete with debating societies.

Qatar hosts three major US military bases on its territory. And it is becoming one of the most important clients for US military contractors. Earlier this year Qatar signed an $11.4 billion dollar arms agreement with the US.

At the same time, according to the Calacalist report, Qatar is the major bankroller of ISIS and al Nusra in Syria and Iraq. It gives $50 million a month to jihadists in Libya. It gives Hamas $100m. in annual aid. And in the past two years Doha has provided Hamas with an additional $620m. dollars, including $250m. it transferred to Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal’s personal bank account, and $350m. in military aid to Hamas, transferred after the Egyptian military forced the Muslim Brotherhood government from power last July.

Add to that the $100m. per year that Qatar pours into Al Jazeera’s satellite network – which has dedicated itself to undermining pro-Western Arab regimes while popularizing the likes of al-Qaida and Hamas, and Qatar is the largest financier of international jihad in the world.

Rather than notice that Qatar and Turkey are playing a double game, and treat them with suspicion, the Obama administration has embraced them.

Chances that Kerry will secure a cease-fire in the near future are small. In all likelihood, the government will be able to buy the time necessary to complete the mission in whole or large part. But the fact that the US has chosen at this juncture in the operation – with Israel enjoying unprecedented support from the most important Sunni states in the region – to side with Hamas and its state sponsors in their demand for an immediate cease-fire speaks volumes about the transformation of US foreign policy under Obama’s leadership.
