    White House Won’t Say if It Pays Other Countries to Accept Guantanamo Bay Transfers David Rutz BY: August 26, 2016 1:40 pm White House spokesman Josh Earnest would not say Friday whether the United States pays other countries to accept in transfers from the Guantanamo Bay terrorist prison, despite being asked directly twice. The Obama administration transferred 15 prisoners earlier this month, leaving just 61 remaining at the Cuba detention facility. The 12 Yemenis and three Afghans were sent to the United Arab Emirates. Since taking office in 2009, President Obama has repeatedly stated his goal to close Gitmo. Fox...

    Full Title: ‘Hillary’s Pickle’ trends as her pickle jar stunt backfires – it didn’t exactly prove what she wanted it to Hillary Clinton wants everyone to know that her health is just fine. With the help of Hollywood friend Jimmy Kimmel, the Democrat presidential hopeful pulled a mind-numbingly stupid stunt Monday night to poke fun at growing rumors surrounding Hillary’s precarious health. “Can you open this jar of pickles?” Kimmel asked as he “surprised” her with a jar. “This has not been tampered with,” he added. Yeah, right. In her typical highly exaggerated, and in no-way-authentic style, Hillary laughed wildly...

    You probably never heard of Max Boot, not that you missed much. Like Ash Carter, Mister Boot is one of those defense intellectuals who makes a living from all things vicarious; consulting, “scholarship,” partisan journalism, political appointments, and think tank sinecures. The shorthand for the Boot stereotype in Washington is “Beltway bandit.” Boot was born in Moscow and has served as one of Senator John McCain’s foreign policy advisors. You could do worse than think of Boot as a Russophobic wing nut. He also is a rabid advocate of regime change, global intervention, Russia-baiting, small wars for Islam, and other...

    The city of Hartford's investment in the Downtown North development, which includes construction of the Dunkin' Donuts Park baseball stadium, exceeds $102 million to date, according to an audit from Hartford's Internal Audit Commission released publicly Friday. Originally priced at $56 million for initial construction funding and bonded at $63.3 million, the unfinished stadium's pricetag has now jumped to $71.7 million, the audit said. For the overall Downtown North development, which includes road work, engineering and other infrastructure work, the total costs to the city are $102.5 million to date, the audit report said.

    France’s highest administrative court has overturned a town’s ban on wearing the full-body burqini swimsuit, in a case expected to set a precedent for the other towns with the same ban. The State Council ruled that local authorities could only restrict individual liberties if there was a “proven risk” to public order. The decision followed arguments from the Human Rights League and an anti-Islamophobia group seeking to reverse the decision by the southern town of Villeneuve-Loubet to ban the Islamic swimsuit. […] Not everyone was pleased with the court result. The former mayor of Nice and current President of Provence-Alpes-Côte...

Parole is usually used in specific humanitarian cases, such as temporarily admitting someone in dire need of medical treatment, but Mr. Obama argues it can also be used more broadly to try to boost the U.S. economy by letting wealthy entrepreneurs buy their way in.

    We’ve gone from deportation force to no amnesty, but we’re going to work with them regarding those who are here illegally. That’s a shift. That seems to be what other former GOP contenders were saying, including Jeb Bush. In fact, it is pretty much Bush’s immigration position that Trump slammed as being weak on illegal immigration. It’s the softening that so many of those who were skeptical about Trump warned the party about, which came out during the Republican nominee’s town hall event last night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity:

    Ever since Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony was delayed by a fall and a concussion, the state of her health has been questioned by her critics and treated by here defenders as a medical subset of the vast right-wing conspiracy. She attempted to make light of new questions being raised, in part from simple observation of her recent behavior by opening a jar of pickles on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Monday night and having him feel her pulse. Team Clinton would have everyone believe this is just another far-right conspiracy theory but incidents indicating she might be in a real pickle over...

    WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats, aware of the dead weight that Donald J. Trump has placed on their vulnerable Republican colleagues, can taste a reclaimed majority. But just as Senate Republicans blew their chances in 2010 and 2012 before finally taking control in 2014, Democrats find themselves hobbled by less-than-stellar candidates in races that could make the difference in winning a majority. In Pennsylvania, Katie McGinty, a relatively unknown former federal official who has never held elective office, is ahead in polls but lags Hillary Clinton’s large lead in the state. In Florida, a nasty primary between two flawed candidates could...

After all, among the many false narratives out there about Trump, the one pushed hardest is that he’s at odds with Latinos. But, like much of that rhetoric, it’s a deliberately simplistic assessment of the Latino electorate. And, for the record, yes —...

I'm simply explaining why he has to alter his position. Over the last two decades we have allowed our country to become overwhelmed by Third World values. What are these values? Third World values are a complete distrust of the system - so much in fact that you believe you should overrun it. It’s not just a movement of restoring the democracy, it’s an arrogance of vanity and self-interest that puts one’s interests above...

    In Traverse City, a couple could lose thousands of dollars in cash as well as their home because of the state’s loose civil forfeiture laws. Their case shows the perspective of both sides of this issue, but the solution is fairly simple – governments should not be able to take ownership of people’s assets unless they are convicted of a crime. The Traverse City Record-Eagle does a great job laying out the situation. The Traverse Narcotics Team believes Kenneth and Mary Murray profited from what it calls “ill-gotten gains.” The law enforcement agency accuses the couple of violating the state’s...

A recent study on increasing maternal mortality rates (MMR) in America made some blatantly dishonest claims about maternal deaths in the Lone Star state, concluding: “Adjusted maternal mortality rates for Texas show only a modest increase from 2000 to 2010, from a rate of 17.7 in 2000 to 18.6 in 2010. However, after 2010, the reported maternal mortality rate for Texas doubled within a 2-year period to levels not seen in other U.S. states.” Just....

    Government of Canada - 2016 Budget ^ | 26 August 2016 | Government of Canada
    Introducing a Bank Recapitalization “Bail-in” Regime To protect Canadian taxpayers in the unlikely event of a large bank failure, the Government is proposing to implement a bail-in regime that would reinforce that bank shareholders and creditors are responsible for the bank’s risks—not taxpayers. This would allow authorities to convert eligible long-term debt of a failing systemically important bank into common shares to recapitalize the bank and allow it to remain open and operating. Such a measure is in line with international efforts to address the potential risks to the financial system and broader economy of institutions perceived as “too-big-to-fail”. The...

  • Healey Hurts Families

    Recently, rogue Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, out of whole cloth, banned the sale of the AR-15 rifle in Massachusetts as an 'evil assault weapon.' Further, she left open the possibility of confiscation of all semi-automatic rifles as 'a common sense step in preventing gun violence.' Nothing in Massachusetts law allows this but she is apparently one more Dem who thinks she's above the law. See details

    Hundreds of streets are named after the founder of communism, but this conservative politician wants to give Marx the boot. Some 550 streets, alleys and plazas in former communist East Germany bear the name of of the Communist Manifesto philosopher, according to Die Welt. But the Economic Council of the CDU (Christian Democratic Union) believes it’s about time the country moved away from its Cold War past, as Bild first reported. “More than a quarter of a century after the political and economic bankruptcy of the GDR [East Germany], it is time to part ways with communism’s replacement of saints...
