  • This Is the Email a Former Clinton Aide Sent Hillary On How to Make Netanyahu’s ‘Politics Uneasy’

    A former national security adviser to President Bill Clinton wrote an email to Hillary Clinton in 2009 advising the then-secretary of state how to deal with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu if he continued to “be the obstacle” in negotiations with Palestinians. The email from Samuel Berger advised Clinton on how to navigate the waters with Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Abu Mazen. “Going forward, if Bibi continues to be the obstacle, you will need to find the ground from which you can make his politics uneasy,” the September 22 email said. “I think you can do that even with current...

    Donald Trump is taking the 2016 Presidential campaign by storm! Trump, who would be a bold defender of conservative principles in the White House, announced on Twitter who is pick for Attorney General is. His choice is South Carolina conservative Rep. Trey Gowdy (R), who continues to Chair the U.S. House of Representative’s Select Committee on Benghazi. Gowdy has been a consistent thorn in the side of the Obama administration, exposing the White House’s incompetence on issues ranging from amnesty, IRS abuses, and the illegal deletion of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. As Trump tweeted, “@HillaryClinton’s toast. Dems had...

    TORONTO, July 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Though Planned Parenthood in the United States is reeling from videos showing senior staff selling fetal body parts from its abortion facilities, in Canada the Abortion Rights Coalition (CARC) has responded by blithely encouraging women to donate their own aborted children for research. “If you ever need an abortion and would like to donate your fetal tissue towards research, here's how,” the Canadian Abortion Rights Coalition posted on its Facebook page on July 23, adding, "Canadian clinics do this too. Everything is handled under strict regulations and ethical guidelines.” But when asked to confirm...

    Canada is in recession. Canadian GDP unexpectedly fell 0.2% in May. This was worse than the 0.0% expected by economists. "The economy has contracted in 6 out of the last 7 months," BNP's Derek Lindsay noted. The resource rich economy has felt the crushing pain of falling commodity prices as global demand for raw materials has decelerated. And relief doesn't seem to be coming any time soon. "We continue to see falling commodities prices weighing heavily on the economy, with mining, utilities, and manufacturing presenting biggest drags on the goods side," Lindsay said. And this probably means more easy monetary...

    Jihadis? Non-Muslim Leftists? No way to be sure at this point, but the scream of “F–k Jews” suggests Islamic anti-Semitism more than just opposition to Israel. However, the hatred of Jews that these men harbor almost certainly derives from “Palestinian” jihad propaganda, which is rooted in the jihad imperative to “drive them out from where they drove you out” (Qur’an 2:191) and destroy Israel utterly. “Toronto Jewish community on alert after threats by hooded men taking photos of synagogue,” by Toby Trompeter, National Post, July 28, 2015 (thanks to Stephen): TORONTO — The greater Toronto Jewish community is disquieted and...

    If all else fails, there’s always drought shaming. After the Metro Vancouver area issued Stage 3 water restrictions last week, perturbed residents have turned to social media to publicly shame local water wasters. It’s the first time the area has imposed the Stage 3 restrictions since 2003, which limits people to watering flowers, vegetables and trees by hand – no sprinklers or hoses. Reservoirs levels have already dropped to 69 per cent in the region – lows that don’t usually come until August. Bylaw officers have received neighbour complaints and are issuing written warnings and $250 fines for offenders, but...

It’s hard to imagine a much more significant political story at this moment, given that she is the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination for president. The story – a Times exclusive — appeared high on the home page and the mobile app late Thursday and on Friday and then was displayed with a three-column headline on the front page in Friday’s paper.

The inspectors general for the State Department and intelligence community on Friday disclosed that an internal review of Clinton's system concluded some emails contained classified information and that the inspectors general had sent a non-criminal "referral" to the Justice Department over the matter.

    OTTAWA — Flora MacDonald, who served as a senior cabinet member in two Conservative federal governments and made a run for the party’s leadership in 1976, has died. She was 89. MacDonald’s long-time executive assistant Margit Herrman says MacDonald died in Ottawa this morning — the cause of death was not immediately available. MacDonald was the first woman to hold the foreign affairs portfolio in Joe Clark’s government from 1979 to 1980. She was heading the department during the Iranian hostage crisis when Canadian diplomats gave shelter to six Americans who escaped capture when their embassy was overrun.

    U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Saturday that she did not use a private email account to send or receive classified information while she was secretary of state, in response to a government inspector's letter this week. "I did not send nor receive anything that was classified at the time," Clinton said at a campaign stop in Iowa. The email controversy has dogged Clinton's bid for the presidency, fuelling worries that the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination has tried to sidestep transparency and record-keeping laws. At least four emails from the private email account that Clinton used while secretary...

Chairman Trey Gowdy asked Clinton to appear before the committee earlier this week, according to campaign spokesman Nick Merrill. Merrill also disputed media reports that Clinton had handled classified information improperly on her private email server, which prompted two inspectors general to refer the matter to the Justice Department for a possible criminal investigation. "Friday began with the printing of a story that was false," Merrill said in a statement. "Entities from the highest levels of two branches of government have now...

    July 23, 2015 The Obama administration formally announced that inspectors general will have to get permission from their agency heads to gain access to grand jury, wiretap and fair credit information — an action that severely limits the watchdogs’ oversight capabilities, independence and power to uncover fraud. An opinion, issued by the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel, says the Inspector General Act of 1978 — which was written by Congress to create the government watchdogs in order to help maintain integrity within their agencies — does not have the authority to override nondisclosure provisions in other laws, most...

Midway through July, only a single oil tanker, aided by a Coast Guard icebreaker, has been able to reach Iqaluit though the sea ice that remains in Frobisher Bay. "We had quite a bit of difficulty bringing it in," says Johnny Leclair, the Coast Guard's assistant commissioner. Sealift ships are also behind schedule, with the MV Anna Desgagnes and the MV Qamutik now...

U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks granted a protective order requested by the Clintons’ lawyers that blocked the depositions until the court resolves their pending motion to dismiss the case and halt discovery.

The news publication is reportedly seeking records about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedules and her former top staffers.

    Canada’s last destroyer is temporarily sidelined after a series of engine problems and other technical issues on the 43-year-old vessel caused senior navy leaders to worry the ship might not be able to continue operating. HMCS Athabaskan, the flagship of the country’s Atlantic fleet, is undergoing a series of repairs in Halifax, according to Royal Canadian Navy documents leaked to Postmedia. Earlier this year, the ship broke down in Florida because of engine problems. It later broke down in the Caribbean, again because of engine issues. HMCS Athabaskan sailors have contacted Postmedia to point out a litany of problems, including...

Since announcing her candidacy in April, Clinton’s stature has steadily slipped. Things got even worse this week. We learned, first, that Bernie Sanders eclipsed Clinton in small, individual donations, which is an indicator of popular support among likely voters. Second, and more problematic, the newest AP poll revealed significant weaknesses among Democrats on a host of issues, including trust, character, and...

    Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton on Monday took a giant step toward letting Democratic voters know she’s representing the progressive agenda, calling for tax increases and more regulation on Wall Street -- while making a play for a liberal base that has been gravitating toward Sen. Bernie Sanders. “I know as much as anybody, the role Wall Street should play for main street,” said Clinton, who vowed, if elected, to “rein in excessive risks” and appoint regulators to “prosecute firms and individuals” who break the law. Clinton also vowed to increase taxes on large corporations and the country’s highest wage-earners,...

The latest Suffolk University poll has Sanders within 10 percentage points of Clinton, at 41-31, among Democrats in New Hampshire. Clinton is only eight points ahead of Sanders, 43-35, in a WMUR/CNN poll. In Iowa she has slipped 26 points since May. Considering this enthusiasm...

The idea that we would remove this relatively small but vital source of funding for our businesses to compete is absolutely backwards.” Clinton’s defense of Ex-Im may be motivated by more than mere concern for American businesses.

We got 3,600 pages, half of which were press clippings, including articles about Richard Gere," he said on CNN.

    In April 2014, prominent Quebec City lawyer Lu Chan Khuong was detained after she walked out of a department store without paying for two pairs of jeans. She avoided trial and publicity by accepting the Crown’s suggestion the case be dealt with “non-judicially” as part of a program to avoid cluttering up the courts with minor offences. That, she hoped, was that. In May she was elected president of the provincial law society, the Barreau du Québec. “I will be the spokesperson for justice,” she declared when she took office last month. But after a newspaper reported her brush with...

    Posted by "Lemmy"... Yes. We hate all you Christ-f*****s and your silly cult. :roll: Christ-f*****s or Jesus-A**-lickers? Which do you prefer as a retort to your proghole insistence? This is in a topic about how a Christian law school is losing their accreditation because they won't approve of homosexuality. This is of interest to FReepers because this is the kind of hate we can expect to see from the left in the very near future.

    A court in Canada has ruled that a Christian law school can be denied accreditation for having a policy in opposition to homosexuality. In a ruling made last week, a three-judge Divisional Court of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruled against Trinity Western University, which had filed a lawsuit against the Law Society of Upper Canada after it denied accreditation to the evangelical Christian university based in Vancouver, British Colombia, in April 2014.

    TORONTO, July 7, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- As Ontario’s Ministry of Health plans measures to reduce the wait time for publicly funded sex-reassignment surgery (SRS), a well-regarded Toronto-based psychiatrist says the rush to provide these procedures is “absurd” and the push to increase their availability politically motivated.Citing an unnamed source “close to” Health Minister Eric Hoskins, Toronto’s Globe and Mail claimed on June 25, a day before the Toronto’s “Trans*Pride March” parade, that the ministry will increase the number of sites that can approve sex-reassignment surgeries, but it is “too early to tell where these will be.”Right now, only the Toronto-based...

    According to financial disclosure reports, President Obama has an estimated net worth of $7 million dollars. Since he was worth $1.3 million in 2007, that makes the millionaire 438% more wealthy than when he first ran for office... While the average US citizen has a median income of roughly $51,000, Obama rakes in the cash with an annual presidential salary of $400,000. In addition, he receives money from book royalties and other investments. Hypocrisy isn’t a stranger to the liberal elite. Michael Moore’s fifty million dollar fortune came from creating documentaries that makes free enterprise look like the same as...

    They said it was a “protest” not a terrorist attack. Now there’s more proof that they lied. The Obama administration knew al-Qaeda was planning an attack in Benghazi to “kill as many Americans as possible” ten days in advance. Judicial Watch reported: Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR),...
  • Some White House Republican hopefuls want curbs on legal immigration [Walker, Santorum]

    Reuters ^ | July 6, 2015 | Andy Sullivan, editing by Ross Colvin
    Republican 2016 presidential hopefuls Scott Walker and Rick Santorum are suggesting a potentially controversial way to boost Americans' job prospects: admit fewer legal immigrants into the United States. The notion, absent from presidential politics for at least 20 years, could help them tap into the frustrations of working-class voters who have struggled with stagnant wages and reduced job opportunities since the economic crisis of 2007-2009. It could also complicate prospects for a comprehensive fix to the nation's outdated immigration system and tar the Republican Party as anti-immigrant at a time when it needs to broaden its support base of Hispanics...

    Initially, most Republican candidates tried to ignore him. But as major corporations cut ties with Trump over his declaration that some Mexican immigrants are rapists and drug-runners, and as the issue continues to fill the airwaves of Spanish-language media, more candidates have spoken out, separating into two camps. Donald Trump's comments on immigration complicate GOP's 'Latino problem' Donald Trump's comments on immigration complicate GOP's 'Latino problem' Those who hope to appeal to Latino voters, including the two Floridians in the race, former Gov.

    During a C-SPAN interview on Sunday, July 5th, Clinton Cash author and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer addressed the renewed interest in Hillary Clinton’s private email server, saying the scandal “works hand in glove with the issues raised” by his bestselling book. CALLER: I want to thank you for your passion and–I just–some people might think this is an unfounded witch hunt but, like Benghazi or a conservative attack on the Clintons, again, but my question is, why do you think that political adversaries of Hillary, particularly the 2016 presidential candidates–why do you think they haven’t taken action, especially...

Ted Cruz (R-TX)96% said Donald Trumps comments about Mexico sending it’s criminals to the Untied States were “bold” and “brash,” but put a needed focus on the many Republicans who support the Chamber of Commerce and Wall Street’s cheap labor immigration push. “I am a passionate advocate for legal immigrants,” Cruz said. “I am the son of an immigrant who came legally from Cuba and I’ll tell you, from the day I started campaigning I traveled the state of Texas talking about how all of us, we are the children...
