  • Intel community: Hillary e-mail server exposed satellite intel on North Korea’s nukes

    hot air ^ | 9/2/2015 | Ed Morrisey
    Multiple sources within the intel community tell the Washington Times’ John Solomon that one of the two Top Secret/Compartmented breaches in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server dealt with critical satellite information about North Korea’s nuclear weapons. This information was one of the reasons that the intel Inspectors General referred the matter to the Department of Justice. If true, this also debunks the defense of Hillary Clinton that the information was unknown to be sensitive when transmitted:

    As feds dig deep into the computer hardware that once hosted the former secretary of state's emails, more than just the messages could turn up. Modern forensic tools could help determine if anyone tried to hack into the server while it was housed in Hillary Clinton's unsecured house. Even data thought to be erased could turn up and point investigators toward other email accounts that no one yet knows about. Because the server was put in place seven years ago, its old-technology hard drives aren't as good as newer machines at erasing things Now that federal investigators have Hillary Rodham...

    Here we go again. Stocks took another nosedive in early trading Tuesday following more fears about a slowdown in China's economy. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 300 points, or about 2%, and is 12% below the all-time high it set in May. The S&P 500 also fell 2% and is once again close to entering a so-called correction. It's down almost 10% from the record that it hit in May. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell more than 1.8% as well and is 10% below its July peak. The Nasdaq also lost its gains for the year Tuesday and is now...

    Millions of older people are wasting their time and money taking fish oils supplements to boost brain power after a study showed they do not slow mental decline. Scientists who monitored the progress of 4,000 people over five years found no evidence that omega-3 capsules kept them any sharper witted as they aged. Other studies have associated regular fish consumption with lower rates of the eye condition age-related macular degeneration (AMD), heart disease, and dementia, as well as larger brain volumes. So it has been widely assumed that the omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish are behind the health boost....

    This is the opinion of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever , Prof. Richard Lindzen, and many others. Climate change alarmism has a surprising number of attributes of a medieval or even ancient religion. Nevertheless, real religions have some pre-requisites, like a tradition spanning at least few generations. So the proper name for climate alarmism is a cult. And these are the telltale attributes: 1) Climate alarmists pretend to possess indisputable truths about the past, present, and future. From minute details of the paleoclimate to the world state 200 years in the future, alarmists know everything. 2) The alarmist...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump is pulling away from the pack in the race for the party's U.S. presidential nomination, widening his lead over his closest rivals in the past week, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday. Republican voters show no signs they are growing weary of the brash real estate mogul, who has dominated political headlines and the 17-strong Republican presidential field with his tough talk about immigration and insults directed at his political rivals. The candidates are vying to be nominated to represent their party in the November 2016 general election. Nearly 32 percent of Republicans surveyed...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's political leaders pushed to attack Iran at least three times in the past few years but had to back down on the advice of the military and due to concerns about its ally the United States, former defense minister Ehud Barak said. In interviews to his biographers aired late on Friday by Israel's Channel Two, Barak said he and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had wanted military operations against Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Israel has regularly hinted it could attack Iran to stop it getting nuclear weapons, something Teheran denies it is seeking....

    It’s finally happening. The crash season is upon us. We’ve seen the early signs this week with leading stocks getting the carpet swept out right from underneath them. China’s stocks are right where they were when its bubble burst 35% into July. UK stocks are in a correction. The DAX is in a correction. And the S&P 500 hasn’t busted quite as much – yet – but it’s dipped below that important level of 2,000 at the bottom of the S&P 500 Channel going back to late 2011. That strongly suggests the market has topped and the great crash is...

    There is only one person who controls Hillary Clinton’s fate, and it isn’t Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton is careening toward possible criminal charges involving her alleged mishandling of classified material on her personal email server while she was secretary of State. And President Obama is driving the bus. She and her team have, of course, reverted to form, blaming everyone but themselves: a “right-wing conspiracy,” The New York Times, overzealous investigators. What they are missing, however, is the one figure who wants her taken out politically, and who has the power to do it. She and Mr. Obama have a...

    The United States presidential election of 1980 was the 49th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 4, 1980. The contest was between incumbent Democratic President Jimmy Carter and his Republican opponent, former California Governor Ronald Reagan, as well as Republican Congressman John B. Anderson, who ran as an independent. Reagan, aided by the Iran hostage crisis and a worsening economy at home marked by high unemployment and inflation, won the election in a landslide, receiving the highest number of electoral votes ever won by a non-incumbent presidential candidate.

    Washington (CNN)Since announcing his campaign in late June, Donald Trump has quickly leapt to the top of the Republican field, leading recent polls nationally, in Iowa and in New Hampshire. And now, for the first time in CNN/ORC polling, his gains among the Republican Party have boosted him enough to be competitive in the general election. The poll finds Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by just 6 points, a dramatic tightening since July. Trump is the one of three Republican candidates who have been matched against Clinton multiple times in CNN/ORC polling to significantly whittle the gap between...

    So Bernie Sanders is leading in New Hampshire. That cheers me — though not because he's my ideal candidate, and certainly not because I think he could win in the general election. I'm convinced he would almost certainly lose against all but the loopiest or scariest Republican opponent. Then why am I — someone almost certain to vote for a Democrat, and hoping to vote for a woman, in 2016 — so pleased by Sanders' ascent? Because it helps to puncture the aura of inevitability around Hillary Clinton. Yes, she continues to lead in every national poll by a large...

    A stunning new poll has Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) beating presumptive Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire. Sanders has eclipsed Clinton by a 44 to 37 percent margin, according to a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll that was first reported by the Boston newspaper Tuesday evening. The previous FPU/Herald poll taken in March had Sanders trailing Clinton 44 to 8. Today's poll is the first to show Sanders, whose liberal policies are popular with the Democratic base, ahead of Clinton in New Hampshire. And it comes as reports surfaced that Clinton will turn over her private email...

    To the average American, the crimes of murder and rape are the most serious but to the intelligence community, it is misuse of classified materials and information. The very existence of the Intel operation demands secrecy and they do not look kindly on violations. Hillary was an idiot for keeping her own server and email account not because it would look bad or cost her votes but because, as secretary of state, she knew that a very large proportion of the emails she sent and received must, perforce, have contained classified information.

Obama said his administration is implementing a new rule that will require communities to frequently review the racial and socio-economic makeup of local neighborhoods and regularly report the results to the federal government. "Just a few weeks ago, the Supreme Court ruled that policies segregating minorities in poor neighborhoods, even unintentionally, are against the law," Obama said, referencing a ruling on the Fair Housing Act largely ignored by the media due to attention on the Obamacare and...

    for running, Hillary Clinton relaunched her campaign at a memorial to FDR. She used the glorious setting of Four Freedoms Park to summon Roosevelt’s legacy and frame her theme as “Four Fights.” She also invoked her husband and President Obama, as if piggy-backing on presidents would define her. Perhaps it will work, but her predicament recalls a Dem president she didn’t mention: Lyndon Baines Johnson. The similarities must scare her. LBJ looked certain to be re-elected in 1968, until a Minnesota senator with a penchant for poetry named Eugene McCarthy shocked the world by getting 42 percent in the New...

    A crackdown on children attempting to illegally enter the United States by Mexico and other Latin American nations has cut this year's surge to a still-high 30,000, but proponents believe that has made the situation even more desperate for kids, leading to greater crime and deaths. "Those that are fleeing and trying to get out of their countries are now using even more dangerous tactics with more criminal entities and costing them even more money to get through to safety," said Kimberly Haynes, director of children's services for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

So Dan Shaul turned to his state legislator- himself - and guided a bill to passage barring local governments from banning the bags. Shaul's dual role in state government and business may be a bit out of the norm. Yet his actions are not.

(discussion: p. 4) 2. 57% of the cumulative anthropic emissions since the beginning of the Industrial revolution have been emitted since 1997, but the temperature has been stable.

He's forming his own Muhammad expo! That's right, he's not running. He's standing. The UK Telegraph reports: Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders said on Wednesday he wanted to stage a parliamentary exhibition of the cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed that sparked a deadly shooting in Texas that left two dead.
