    FULL TITLE on Drudge Reporter given chance to question Hillary -- asks about favorite flavor of ice cream... Reporters traveling with Hillary Clinton were given the opportunity to ask the Democratic presidential contender a few questions Friday — and they lobbed a few softballs her direction. Here’s a transcript of the question and answer session from the pool report: Q: Bernie got almost 10,000 people at his recent rally. What does that say about him as a candidate and why aren’t you drawing those crowds. A: “well, we each run or own campaigns and I always knew this was gonna...

    DRUDGE Headline - Axelrod caught in new lie... Former White House senior adviser David Axelrod said in June he was unaware Hillary Clinton conducted business from a personal email server when she served as secretary of State – but a State Department document dump Tuesday evening raises questions about how much he knew. Asked last month in an interview whether he knew anything about Clinton's "homebrew" system when they worked together in the Obama administration, Axelrod responded, "I didn't know." However, correspondences from 2009 show that Axelrod may have had reason to know about Clinton's questionable email behavior. While it's...

    It was the most curious of spectacles. John Boehner, abandoning everything he claimed his stood for, has been reduced to an Obama hand puppet. That stench is the smell of Boehner hypocrisy. Boehner was instrumental in getting passed Obama’s Transpacific Authority and it has consistently been cloaked in secrecy. Secrecy. As in zero transparency.

    Did you know that the national debt could skyrocket if fiscally irresponsible Republicans decide to repeal ObamaCare? President Barack Obama, sounding a bit like a member of the Tea Party on Twitter Monday, warned that the national debt could increase by $137 billion if his signature achievement is repealed. This marks the first time Obama has ever shown concern about the national debt — which has exploded under his stewardship:The United States’ national debt has now passed the $18 trillion mark and is up by a whopping 70 percent since President Obama took office.

    Politico ^ | 6/12/15 | Sarah Wheaton and Edward-Isaac Dovere
    President Barack Obama responded to a stinging defeat dealt by his own party by declaring victory. It is a common tactic in Washington to downplay bad news, but the White House brought it to a new level on Friday after House Democrats soundly defeated a package of free trade legislation that the president had personally implored them to pass. The White House chose to highlight the fact that one part of the package passed, even though two approvals were necessary to give Obama the trade authority he needs to negotiate the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    The Obama Administration resumed its assault on gun owners this week, when it unveiled a so-called “Unified Agenda” containing 12 proposed anti-gun regs being planned by the Justice Department. This prompted a Fox News discussion this week, where GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt debated an anti-gun (Bloomberg) spokesman. You can view that debate here. Gun Owners of America will continue to update you about what is happening with this new ground assault being leveled by the Obama administration. But first, we wanted to alert you to the counter-offensive that House Republicans are waging against Obama’s gun control agenda. Kudos to...

    E-mails obtained from the Environmental Protection Agency show that Harvard University, Syracuse University and two of their researchers appear to have falsely claimed a study supporting EPA’s upcoming global warming rules was conducted “independent(ly)” of the agency. In early May, a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change purported to support a key EPA claim about its forthcoming global warming rules aimed at coal-fired power plants. The New York Times’ headline, “EPA Emissions Plan Will Save Thousands of Lives, Study Finds,” typified the media coverage.

    The ABC anchor has admitted he donated the money to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans do not want to let the matter die. ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, who for 15 years expertly navigated his re-invention from tough Clinton operative to respected television journalist, has finally—and perhaps inevitably—slipped up. His mistake, by any definition, is a beaut—no doubt prompting a blush of shame and putting the network news division on the defensive.

    The Obama administration violated U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction halting President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, Justice Department lawyers have admitted to the court, according to the Washington Times. The Times reports that in a late night filing Thursday, Justice Department lawyers revealed that the Department of Homeland Security had issued some 2,000 three-year work permits (as opposed to the currently permissible two-year permits) to illegal immigrants granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

This is how the WSJ explained it: The U.S. Justice Department’s criminal head said banks may need to go beyond filing suspicious activity reports when they encounter a risky customer.

    Move to eliminate all U.S. funding for diplomacy with Iran Congressional leaders have begun pressuring their colleagues to cut off all U.S. funding for the ongoing talks with Iran over its contested nuclear program as the Obama administration rushes to hash out the details of a deal in the coming months, according to multiple sources and a letter that will be sent next week to appropriators in the House of Representatives. With the deadline approaching, congressional Republicans have been exasperated by the Obama administration’s efforts to prevent them from having any oversight over the deal.

Members of the Republic of Texas, a secession movement dedicated to restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic, had gathered Feb. 14 in a Bryan, Texas, meeting hall along with public onlookers.

Obviously, a little unnecessary litigation is the most effective way to right the wrongs of a madman. According to CNBC: Ten families touched by the Newtown massacre filed a wrongful death lawsuit Monday against companies that made, distributed and sold the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary two years ago. The suit argues that the gun is a military assault weapon that never...

    The lame duck session hasn’t yet convened, but its first major battle — over how best to thwart the executive action on immigration the president is expected to issue in the coming months — is already underway. Conservatives are pushing to include a measure attempting to deny the government the funds it needs to administer the amnesty in a must-pass spending bill, the so-called continuing resolution. That would include the funds to issue green cards and work permits. National Review Online obtained a copy of a letter that Arizona congressman Matt Salmon is circulating to his colleagues to generate support...

    One way scam artists make money is by peddling mislabeled goods. The label on the can says “Wild Alaskan Salmon,” but what’s really inside is codfish from a filthy breeding pen in China, plus some food coloring. Selling mislabeled goods is illegal, but there’s nothing illegal about mislabeled laws. Michael Bloomberg knows that difference, and he is exploiting it. Right now in the state of Washington, Bloomberg is pushing a November ballot measure that is promoted as being about background checks for private sales. But it is really a law to criminalize most gun owners, including those who never sell...

    Barack Obama applied the brakes to the most critical component of his climate change plan on Tuesday, slowing the process of setting new rules cutting carbon pollution from power plants, and casting a shadow over a landmark United Nations’ summit on global warming. In a conference call with reporters, the Environmental Protection Agency said it was extending the public comment period on the power plant rules for an additional 45 days, until 1 December. The delay follows heavy lobby by Republicans and industry lobby groups to delay the rule – or withdraw it outright.—Suzanne Goldenberg, The Guardian, 16 September 2014

Of course, this raises a few questions: If corporations aren’t people, then why should we expect businesses to exercise “economic patriotism” in their tax dealings? I mean heck, I guess we shouldn’t...

In an interview with Breitbart News, Sen. Marco Rubio hinted that if Obama decided to grant executive amnesty to illegal immigrants, perhaps Republicans could block his actions using the budget process. If Democrats in the Senate balked at passing a funding resolution without money to process Obama's executive amnesty, it could cause a government shutdown.

    Robert Wolf bundled over a million dollars for Obama, got a WH appointment, and is cashing in on his connections As economists and policy wonks debate the merits of U.S. export financing, critics of one controversial program are warning of more subtle consequences exemplified, they say, by one of the president’s golfing buddies. Robert Wolf joined the president on the links this month in Martha’s Vineyard, the latest of his frequent outings with the president. The foursome also included private equity financier Glenn Hutchins and Cyrus Walker, cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

    Top House Dem exempted light rail project benefitting mega-donor from cost-effectiveness regulations, then secured federal subsidies A top House Democrat to whom billionaire liberal Tom Steyer has donated campaign funds steered more than a billion dollars to an infrastructure project that benefitted his hedge fund. That hedge fund, Farallon Capital Management, bought up large plots of real estate in San Francisco’s burgeoning Mission Bay neighborhood in 2004. The area is now booming and Farallon has sold most of its property there. Steyer, who founded and led Farallon until late 2012, has used his fortune to elect Democratic senators and governors....

    “No political appointees in an Obama-Biden administration will be permitted to work on regulations or contracts directly and substantially related to their prior employer for two years,” read one of the president’s many broken promises from the 2008 campaign. “And no political appointee will be able to lobby the executive branch after leaving government service during the remainder of the administration.” “I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over,” Obama said in 2007 according to a post on Change.gov which is, gallingly, still live. “I have done...

    More than 600 convicted criminals, including felons, were among thousands of illegal immigrants freed under the Obama administration in advance of 2013 budget cuts mandated under sequestration. That’s according to a new report today from the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security. According to the IG’s report, at least two-dozen “aliens” were released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement even though they were in a “mandatory detention category.” (After an internal review, ICE later redetained them.)

    Facing an increasingly hostile political landscape, Democrats are turning an old adage upside down; asking voters to believe what the candidates say, not what they do. In districts across the country, Democrats are campaigning on tax cuts, balanced budgets and rolling back harmful regulations. This pivot away from the national Democrat party isn't just on fiscal issues. With more conservative positions on guns, fracking and coal, for example, Democrat candidates, effectively, are practically carving out their own third party. Last year, Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis filibustered her way into liberal, feminist rock-stardom with an 11-hour stand against legislation restricting...

    Fresh off a trip to India and Australia, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed a group of Marines in San Diego, California Tuesday, and may have delivered a line that will show up in Republican campaign ads this election cycle. After updating the troops on some issues in the Pacific region and the Middle East, Hagel took questions from some of the Marines and gave a stark assessment of the global security situation: "The world is exploding all over." The remark came in response to a question about the Obama administration's realignment of the military towards the Asia-Pacific theater:

    MEXICO CITY – Gov. Jerry Brown suggested Monday that Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ordering of National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border to address the surge in border crossings is misguided, urging politicians instead to heed the “religious call … to welcome the stranger” in addressing the crisis. “This is a human problem, and it has been the religious call of all religions to welcome the stranger, and it’s in that spirit that I believe the clergy can call the United States, Mexico and all the players to perhaps a higher response than might otherwise happen,” Brown said on the...

    When international pressure starts to bear on this administration, their true motivation and agenda becomes all too clear. This phenomenon was on display late last week as Israel continued to drive into the Gaza Strip militarily in order to rid the territory of the scores of tunnels that Hamas had dug under Israeli schools and daycare centers, with the intention of murdering children. Thousands of rockets have been launched into Israel with the intention of killing Jewish civilians. Hamas infiltrators have been captured with tranquilizers and handcuffs confirming their desire to kidnap and kill as many Jews as possible, just...
