  • Hypocrisy not the issue in Palin comments on Clinton email scandal

    Alaska Dispatch News ^ | March 5, 2015 | Scott Woodham
    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has joined critics of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the use of private email accounts to conduct public business. The rest of the United States should try not to be distracted by the gales of unseasonably warm laughter coming from Alaska today. On March 5, Palin's Facebook page posted the following:This Clinton email scandal can't be shrugged off. If this doesn't strike you as shady and corrupt, I don't know what will. Didn't anyone in the Obama administration notice that the Secretary of State for "the most transparent administration in history" was only using...

    The secretary of the Army is defending his decision to strip awards for heroism from a former Green Beret officer, saying the soldier demonstrated a "lack of honorable conduct" after he earned the medals. Golsteyn was later investigated for an undisclosed violation of the military's rules of engagement in combat — a violation related to the killing of a known enemy bombmaker, according to officials familiar with the case. The investigation closed in 2014 without Golsteyn's being charged with a crime, but Army Secretary John McHugh made the rare decision to strip him of both awards anyway. (snip) In a...
  • Progressives, It’s Time to Start Panicking about Hillary

    The National Review ^ | March 5, 2015 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    There is no Plan B for 2016. I’ll say it, happily: Democrats should be worried about Hillary Clinton, and moderately panicked about the immediate future of both their party and their cause. This is not, of course, because Hillary’s latest scandale du jour is in any practical way going to “disqualify” her; and nor is it because leftward-leaning voters are likely to recall anything more from this rather awkward period in time than that the Clintons are as perennially sleazy as they ever were. Rather, it is because the last few days have underscored just how tenuous the Left’s grip...

    Salon ^ | March 5, 2015 | Paul Rosenberg
    In the immediate aftermath of World War II, a wide range of thinkers, both secular and religious, struggled to make sense of the profound evil of war, particularly Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. One such effort, “The Authoritarian Personality” by Theodore Adorno and three co-authors, opened up a whole new field of political psychology—initially a small niche within the broader field of social psychology—which developed fitfully over the years, but became an increasingly robust subject area in 1980s and 90s, fleshing out a number of distinct areas of cognitive processing in which liberals and conservatives differed from one another. Liberal/conservative...

    [SNIP]".......When evangelicals picked up the issue of trafficking around the turn of the millennium, they drastically expanded the existing movement’s influence and reach. By now it has spawned major institutional efforts by nonprofits like World Relief, not to mention both state and federal legislation. According to some critics, however, Christians also changed the movement’s character. “It wasn’t until this evangelical coalition emerged that sex trafficking became this huge everyday issue,” said [Gretchen] Soderlund [author of the 2013 book Sex Trafficking, Scandal, and the Transformation of Journalism, 1885–1917, the better comparison may be to the“ white slavery” panic of the late...

    An Indianapolis bakery that drew national media attention a year ago after refusing to make a cake for a same-sex “wedding” has closed its doors. Randy and Trish McGath, the owners of the former 111 Cakery, said they closed the business down because Trish, the shop’s primary baker, was tired and wanted to spend more time with her grandchildren. The work was “wearing [Trish] out,” said Randy, who has since transitioned to a job selling recreational vehicles. Last March, the McGaths endured a campaign of internet harassment by homosexual activists after a local television station reported that the couple had...

    They were four words that became the national rallying cry of a new civil rights movement: “Hands up, don’t shoot.” Protesters chanted it, arms raised, in cities across the country in solidarity for Michael Brown, the black teenager who some witnesses said was surrendering when he was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The slogan was embraced by members of Congress, recording artists and football players with the St. Louis Rams. It inspired posters and songs, T-shirts and new advocacy groups, a powerful distillation of simmering anger over police violence and racial injustice in Ferguson...

When Alaskan native tribes honored the EPA worker with gifts, she returned the favor by telling the Wall Street Journal she threw one of the “f-ing things away” and that the moose meat she was given could “gag a maggot.” During Wednesday’s Environment and Public Works Committee, Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) grilled McCarthy about her ‘disturbing’ comments that were featured in the largely positive Wall Street Journal profile. “A lot of people saw that as a glowing article,” he said. “Most people in Alaska...

    Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder's race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson's police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD's vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report.

The military had been asked by Manning and her attorney to cease the habit, but filed an official opposition to that request. The Army Court of Criminal Appeals has now ruled on the matter, ordering that “future formal papers filed before this court and all future orders and decisions issued by this court shall either be neutral, e.g., Private First Class Manning or appellant, or employ a feminine pronoun.”

Obama’s amnesty plan is to use illegal aliens as “seedlings,” said the federal officials. They will “navigate, not assimilate,” as they “take over the host,” create a “country within a country” and start “pushing the citizens into the shadows.” Welcome to the “fundamental transformation” of America.

    Although Hillary Clinton and her allies may be claiming that her private e-mail system is no big deal, Hillary’s State Department actually forced the 2012 resignation of the U.S. ambassador to Kenya in part for setting up an unsanctioned private e-mail system. According to a 2012 report from the State Department’s inspector general, former U.S. ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration set up a private e-mail system for his office in 2011. The inspector general’s report offered a scathing assessment of Gration’s information security practices — practices that are eerily similar to those undertaken by Clinton while she served as Secretary...

    I work for the G. I work in the Office of the Executive Secretariat in a SMALL government agency. I'm sure many people are coming forward claiming some kind of insider knowledge, but trust me when I tell you that (low level that I was) I was one of 4 people in my agency with access to our Administrator's emails. I went through every day and sorted the emails with a color code. Here's the thing; our Administrator, in our puny agency, averaged over 250 incoming emails each and every single day, 365 days per year. If I read correctly,...

    Meet Diane Reynolds. Diane is 43 years young, and she likes shopping at Chico’s and drinking wine spritzers. She drives a sensible SUV, visits her book club once a week, and enjoys the benefits of a secret email server hidden in her mother’s basement, and her mother just so happens to be Secretary of State.That is because “Diane Reynolds” is actually the pseudonym of Chelsea Clinton, who the New York Times recently learned had her own secret email on the ClintonEmail.com servers. (Note: We have chosen a photo that best approximates what we believe a woman named “Diane Reynolds”...

    March 5, 2015 A cornered Clinton is a craven Clinton, which is why we should view Hillary Rodham Clinton's latest public relations trick with practiced skepticism. "I want the public to see my email," she tweeted Wednesday night. "I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible."

    Hillary Clinton's secret email account was HDR22@clintonemail.com.  HDR stands for the initials of her maiden name, Hillary Diane Rodham.  22 is a clever by half reference to Title 22 of the US Code which covers diplomatic law.  The official title of section 22 is Foreign Relations and Intercourse. (see below for link to Title 22)  https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22 It's a lawyer joke/reference to the Code that covers foreign relations by a lawyer about to become Secretary of State.  Such an account is corrupt and illegal for a Secretary of State.  It is Nixonian.  It was meant to maintain control over information and...

    Chuck Schumer wants to do just that. It sounds oh so reasonable, right? U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for passage of legislation prohibiting individuals on the U.S. terrorist watch list from buying guns. The New York Democrat noted the arrests this week of three Brooklyn men on charges they conspired to join ISIS in Syria or carry out attacks at home. If they were on the terrorist watch list, the bill Schumer’s backing would have prohibited them from buying firearms or explosives.

    In 2012, U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration abruptly stepped down from his post. According to a Foreign Policy report by Josh Rogin (now a reporter for Bloomberg), Gration was the subject of a whithering evaluation from the State Department: The impending release of a highly critical report by the State Department’s Inspector General’s office prompted the sudden resignation Friday of U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration, according to administration and congressional sources. Very soon after the Ambassador’s arrival in May 2011, he broadcast his lack of confidence in the information management staff. Because the information management office could not...

    Freedom Outpost ^ | 3/5/2015 | Theodore Shoebat
    John Allen, a retired US general who works as Obama's envoy to the international coalition that is combating ISIS, has made it very clear that the Obama administration will defend Syrian rebels, who are all Muslim jihadists, once they are in combat. He also made it clear that the US plans on training 15,000 of these jihadists over the next 3 years. As we read from the report: The United States will be ready to "protect" moderate Syrian rebels, possibly with air power once they enter into combat, a top US official said March 2. Retired US general John Allen,...

    After days of controversy surrounding the use of personal email for all of her official State Department Business, former Secretary Hillary Clinton is breaking her silence. Late Wednesday night Clinton sent out a tweet saying she has asked the State Department to release her emails. As soon as possible? How about Clinton, who has access to all of her emails thanks to running private server from her house, releases them herself? And if she really wants the public to read her emails, she should do it now. State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf, who has defended Clinton's use of private email...
