  • Not News? Clinton Foundation Honors Wife of Palestinian Terrorist

    09/22/2016 5:25:31 PM PDT · by Cheerio · 11 replies
    MRC Newsbusters ^ | September 22, 2016 | By Tim Graham was checking out a story the liberal media doesn’t want to touch: “Hanan al-Hroub, whose husband was jailed for providing chemicals used in making bombs that killed Israelis, was invited to speak at a Clinton Global Initiative dinner.” Ruling: True. So the liberal media thrills at any chance to associate Donald Trump with David Duke, but it can’t possibly find the newsworthiness in the Clinton Foundation honoring the wife of a terrorist bomb-maker. A Nexis search finds nothing in network or cable news, and nothing in the nation's most prestigious newspapers -- save one. Only The Wall Street Journal...

    Bolstering Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall and deport criminal illegals, a former Mexican foreign secretary said that there are "many ways" the Republican presidential candidate, if elected, can get Mexico to pay for the wall and deport four million immigrants. "The wall is a perfectly feasible promise to fulfill," said Jorge Castañeda, Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs from 2000 to 2003. Dismissing a Mexican Senate move to block federal payments to a Trump administration for the wall as "silly," Castañeda offered up several ways for Trump to find the money. "If he really wants Mexicans to pay for...

    On Thursday, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will release its report on “The Economic and Fiscal Consequences of Immigration.” According to the report, first generation immigrants as a group increase the nation’s fiscal deficit. In other words, the government benefits they receive exceed the taxes paid. The National Academies’ report provides 75-year fiscal projections for new immigrants and their descendants. The fiscal impact varies greatly according to the education level of the immigrant. Low-skill immigrants are shown to impose substantial fiscal costs that extend far into the future. The future government benefits they will receive greatly exceed...

    An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday. The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.” “The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email,...

    Americans for Tax Reform ^ | September 20th, 2016 | John Kartch
    Today Americans for Tax Reform released more evidence of Hillary Clinton’s long held desire to impose new and higher gun taxes. ATR's previously exposed her 1993 endorsement of a new 25 percent national retail sales tax on guns. But unreported since 1993 is Clinton’s support for a doubling of the current federal excise tax on guns. In a closed-door meeting, she told then-Rep. Mel Reynolds (D-Ill.) that his bill to double the tax was a “great idea." As reported by the Chicago Tribune on March 19, 1993: Rep. Mel Reynolds said Thursday that Hillary Rodham Clinton was "very enthusiastic"...

    Since news broke on Saturday regarding a string of pipe and pressure cooker bombs being found in New Jersey and New York (with some going off), nearly everyone in the news and political world have been offering their unsolicited hot takes via Twitter on bombs, radical Islam, and terrorism. Perhaps the most egregious and mind-boggling was MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes, who ran into proverbial buzzsaw of outrage when he declared in a tweet that the people of the New York City metropolitan area were “very very lucky that the attackers tried to use explosive rather than guns.”

    "Social justice warriors" (SJWs) — those perennially prone to offense by the slightest hint of political incorrectness or simple diversity of opinion — have a new coping tool, thanks to Project Veritas filmmaker James O’Keefe: the emotional first aid kit. O’Keefe introduced the new “must-have” campus accessory at the University of Houston, ahead of a sold-out appearance on Monday evening by Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulous, who is already “triggering” the politically intolerant. The emotional first aid kits are designed to address the trauma of any "microaggressions" a student or professor might encounter if they cannot reach a “safe...

Jackson when he said that if it was not for Republicans, African-Americans would still be enslaved. “Sean, Abraham Lincoln is long dead. Let’s talk about the current Republican nominee,” Reid said. “I think the reason African-Americans have civil rights is because African-Americans fought for them.”

    Sen. Chuck Schumer has reminded us just how important the upcoming presidential election will be in shaping the federal judiciary, calling getting a progressive Supreme Court his “number one goal.” “A progressive majority on the Supreme Court is an imperative, and if I become majority leader, I will make it happen,” Schumer, D-N.Y., said to attendees at a conference last week hosted by the Rev. Al Sharpton. These statements should concern individuals with a proper understanding of the limited role of the judiciary. The next president will appoint at least one justice to the Supreme Court and could fill one-third...

    I’d thought we might have heard the last of the Katie Couric infomercial posing as an examination of gun rights issues. After all, there was public outrage aplenty and even Couric herself finally admitted that the editing of the piece “might have been misleading.” (Really? You think so?) But the group which was the victim of the insulting and misleading editing, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, is bringing the GunGate story back into the news this week. Our colleagues at Bearing Arms have obtained documents confirming that the group is seeking to take Couric to court over the slanderous piece...

    Repent, secular heretic, and embrace the revelation du jour! Over the weekend, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine spoke at a Human Rights Watch event, extolling the virtues of his running mate on LGBTQ rights and dismissing Donald Trump’s claims to championing their interests. Kaine took a detour from that mission, though, to offer a campaign promise unlike anything ever seen. Kaine, a Catholic, noted that his unconditional support for same-sex marriage puts him at odds with his church, but predicted that the Vatican would adopt the progressive gospel in the future: “My full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality is...

    Former President Bill Clinton is being defensive about his wife’s health. CBS anchor Charlie Rose pressed him repeatedly with questions about Hillary Rodham Clinton’s health condition. She’d collapsed in New York City on Sunday after ducking out of the 9/11 memorial ceremony. “It’s almost certain she’s in better health than her opponent,” Bill Clinton said. “But we don’t know, because he hasn’t disclosed.” Clinton appeared frustrated after Rose repeatedly asked him why the campaign didn’t release more health records to reassure American voters.

O’Keefe replied, “What do you mean?” The student got distraught and said, “I don’t want my future to be this!” She later said, “You don’t have to make a wall. You don’t need a man like this!”

    Senator opposed to back-door ratification of test ban accord The Obama administration will seek a formal political agreement at the United Nations that would legally bind the United States to a nuclear test ban treaty rejected by the Senate 17 years ago. The plan was outlined in a letter from the State Department to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.), who is challenging the administration’s effort to lock in American adherence to the signed but unratified Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, or CTBT. The treaty bans nuclear testing and was signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1996....

    Last Friday, Twitter provided a near-perfect window into America’s divided, polarized soul. That afternoon, the FBI released its heavily redacted report and interview notes regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mails, and the responses could not have been more different. The Right side of the Twitterverse melted down. Some of the revelations were stunning. Hillary’s team wiped her server after the New York Times disclosed its existence — at the same time that Hillary herself was publicly calling for the release of her e-mails to the public. Incredibly, Hillary told investigators that she didn’t pay attention to the “level” of classification attached to...

    THE FIX IS IN - Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” when asked about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, President Barack Obama said he expected that Americans will say “no” to Trump’s policy measures. Obama said, “There’s a long tradition in the United States of inclusion, immigration, diversity, but also people once they’re included in what they consider to be the real America, worried about outsiders, contaminating, polluting, messing up a good thing. That’s not new. That dates back to the beginning of this country. What I’m always reminding people is that although you’ll see bumps, whether it’s the No-nothings,...

Mohsen Bahrami, the director of Iran’s space agency— which has long been suspected of providing cover for weapons research—announced that Iran would launch its newest satellite, dubbed “Friendship,” later this year. “The Dousti (Friendship) satellite (built) by (experts at) Sharif University of Technology is the first satellite which will be launched in the...

That was Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning's shooting-from-the-hip response to the latest revision to the gross domestic product by the Bureau of Economic Analysis in the second quarter. The number was revised downward from a tepid, inflation-adjusted 1.2% annualized to 1.1%.

The Pentagon’s inspector general recently audited three of the Navy’s large-scale renewable energy projects at installations supervised by the U.S. Pacific Command, finding that federal employees tasked with carrying out cost-effectiveness assessments of these projects did not have the documentation to back up their calculations or conclusions. The Navy has not provided “comprehensive guidance” for evaluating the cost effectiveness of the six large-scale...

A solid U.S. labor market "has strengthened" the case for the first rate increase since last December, Fed Chair Janet Yellen told a central banking conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Several of her colleagues said the increase could come as soon as next month if the economy does well. Further rate hikes are expected to be few and far between as the U.S. central bank tries to balance...

    NEW YORK – Judicial Watch’s release this week of 725 pages of State Department emails involving Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin demonstrates the Obama administration considers a large percentage of the emails sent through Clinton’s private server too sensitive for Congress or the American public to read. Of the 725 pages, more than 250 pages were 100 percent redacted, many with “PAGE DENIED” stamped in bold. Judicial Watch said the new cache includes previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Abedin “provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state.” Judicial Watch added that in many...

    It’s now been 256 days since Hillary Clinton has done a formal press conference and the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward is wondering about the Democrat’s potential “transparency” as President. Woodward appeared on CBS This Morning, Tuesday, to offer some critiques of Clinton. But the famous Watergate journalist was sometimes mild in his assessments. He wondered, “I think people say if she became president, are we going to have some kind of transparency?” To be fair, the Post journalist did say of Clinton: “Let's face it, Hillary Clinton just did not come totally clean on this. And she would serve herself...

John Cornyn is demanding answers from Attorney General Loretta Lynch about the Justice Department’s decision earlier this year to decline an FBI recommendation to investigate the Clinton Foundation. The Republican points out in the letter that the DOJ’s decision not to pursue an investigation despite the FBI’s recommendation is in stark contrast to its decision last month to accept the bureau’s recommendation not to charge Clinton following its email probe. "The outcome in both cases favors Secretary Clinton," Cornyn writes. On Thursday, CNN reported that the FBI and three Justice Department field offices recommended that Justice Department headquarters...

Last year, $1 million of the total $1,042,000 that the Clintons deducted in charitable contributions went to the Clinton Family Foundation, the Daily Caller reported Friday. The tax return showed that the other $42,000 in contributions went to Desert Classic Charities, a nonprofit that organizes an annual charity golf tournament. The organization then in turn contributed $700,000 to the Clinton Foundation. A foundation adviser and longtime Bill Clinton assistant, Doug Band, was on the organization’s board...

    Americans now holding permits to pack a concealed weapon in public has soared 215 percent since 2007 to over 14.5 million, a record, according to a new report. The Crime Prevention Research Center said that last year alone a record 1.73 million were approved in states requiring them. John. R. Lott Jr., president of the Center, added that as the number of concealed carry permits has increased, the murder rate has dropped. Much of the surge in permits has come due to gun control threats from President Obama and highly-publicized mass shootings that have prompted several law enforcement officials to...

Nehlen began by discussing Ryan’s role regarding trade in general and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) specifically. "We are under siege in almost every industry–I would argue every industry–by government overreach. We have to get back to the Tenth Amendment. Why do I send a dollar to Washington in order to get seventy cents in education back?" continued Nehlen. While discussing the fact that the race has generated national attention,...

    One member of “Team Bush” has lined up behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Trump lampooned former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as “low energy” throughout the Republican president primary season. He also criticized policy decisions of former President George W. Bush regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the Iraq War. As a result, the Bush family has steadfastly refrained from endorsing Trump in his presidential campaign. That changed Saturday, when Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush urged Texas Republicans to support Trump. George P. Bush, 40, is Jeb Bush’s son.

Obama was asked about the future of his golf game by the Golf Channel’s David Feherty in an interview that took place just before he played his 300th game as president. “I’m not a hack, but I’m not quitting my day job,” he explained. “Actually you are quitting your day job fairly shortly,” Feherty pointed out. “Well then I may get good,” Obama replied grinning, before adding, “I’m being forced out, I didn’t quit.”

    The Democratic Party’s top donors are pouring money into Colorado political groups, drawing attention to state legislative contests and ballot fights that could affect the redrawing of key congressional districts, public records show. Billionaire hedge fund managers George Soros and Tom Steyer are steering money to Colorado state senate candidates, while the Democracy Alliance, a leading left-wing donor club created ten years ago by four wealthy Colorado Democrats, provides financing for an interconnected network of Democrat-aligned political groups. Campaign finance data reveals how the Alliance and its top donors are implementing a strategy conceived last year to retake power at...

    Iranian television has broadcast what some say is purported footage of the $400 million pallets of cash that officials claim was part of the “expensive price” paid by the Obama administration to free several U.S. hostages. The footage, which could not be independently verified, shows images of large stacks of hard currency and features claims that the Obama administration sent this money over as part of an effort to free several U.S. hostages. The White House vehemently denied these claims this week following new reports about the cash exchange. BBC Persian reporter Hadi Nili posted the footage on Twitter and...

    Republicans in Congress are criticizing President Barack Obama’s administration for its approval of a $400 million delivery of cash to Iran on the same day the country released four American prisoners and formally implemented the nuclear deal. Though the administration says the timing of the $400 million money transfer was coincidental, and part of a resolution of a failed arms deal between the two countries that dates to the Iranian revolution, critics say that a link between the payment and the prisoner exchange is undeniable. “The claim that the timing is coincidental is beyond unbelievable,” said Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y.,...

    Hillary Clinton called for raising taxes on the “middle class” while campaigning on Monday in Omaha, NE. Joined by left-wing Democrat billionaire Warren Buffett, she received applause from those in attendance. “Because while Warren is standing up for a fairer tax code, Trump wants to cut taxes for the super-rich,” said Clinton. “Well, we’re not going there, my friends. I’m telling you, right now - we’re going to write fairer rules for the middle class and we are going to raise taxes on the middle class!”

    The Supreme Court decided Wednesday to put a hold on a ruling that would have required a Virginia school district to allow a transgender high school student to use the boy's bathroom. The eight justices split 5-3, with Democrat-appointed Justice Stephen Breyer siding with the Republican-appointed judges that the Gloucester County public school system does not have to accommodate student Gavin Grimm's request to use the bathroom of his choice.

    President Obama on Wednesday admitted that America's free press is "frustrating sometimes," but said in the end a free press is healthy because it helps identify real problems that need to be fixed. "[T]here have been times where I thought the press was very unfair, and I'd open up the newspaper and say, 'What?!' and I'd start arguing," he said in answer to a question he was asked at the Young African Leaders Initiative meeting on Wednesday. "But, there have also been times where the press investigated something, and I thought, 'You know what, this is a problem,'" he said.

    President Barack Obama is mocking Republicans who repeatedly denounce Donald Trump at the bidding of the mainstream media, challenging them to reject their party’s nominee. “The question I think that they have to ask themselves is, if you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him?” Obama asked. “What does this say about your party that this is your standard bearer?” Obama ridiculed Trump at a White House press conference for “daily and weekly” episodes in the presidential election where Republicans had to distance themselves from...

    Hillary Clinton said she was not interested in taking away guns from Americans during her acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, in spite of her past comments on the issue. "If we’re serious about keeping our country safe, we also can't afford to have a president who's in the pocket of the gun lobby," Clinton said in her speech. "I'm not here to repeal the Second Amendment. I'm not here to take away your guns. I just don't want you to be shot by someone who shouldn't have a gun in the first place." "We should be...

    Leaked emails seem to suggest that the Democratic National Committee maintains cozy relationships with mainstream media outlets but takes a more caustic approach with publications it believes to be conservative. According to these emails, party officials stonewalled and blacklisted the Washington Examiner when editors approached the party in May to gather the names of delegates to the Democratic National Convention for publication in a souvenir edition of its magazine. “I can send an alert to the state parties not to respond to this inquiry,” DNC Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker wrote in an email of May 10. “Examiner is a...

    Sub Heading: This will be one of the ugliest, most divisive elections in American history PHILADELPHIA — For four days here in this city of brotherly love and the nation’s founding, Democrats wrapped themselves in the language of patriotism and positivity, declaring the country would be “stronger together” as they nominated Hillary Clinton to serve as the first woman president. “Love trumps hate,” came the cheers from the crowd, only days after Donald Trump’s Republican convention echoed with chants of “Lock her up!” But as the 102-day general election starts, the reality is that both parties, saddled with two of...

    John McCain was a pilot in Viet Nam and there is no question that he and his fellow POWs suffered immeasurably in the Hanoi Hilton. For that we owe them all a debt of gratitude. Yet that does not give any one person the right to do harm to our country from a legislative position nor to put others in peril around the world by ill-conceived policy. Since I have been in Congress, Senator John McCain has pushed an agenda ranging from blanket amnesty for illegal aliens to support for President Barrack Obama’s and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s...
