  • Hillary: Women Cannot be 'Establishment'

    Lifezette ^ | 2/05/16 | Brendan Kirby
    Hillary Clinton on Thursday said a woman cannot be considered part of the Establishment. Clinton offered the claim during a Democratic presidential debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in Durham, New Hampshire. Sanders said Clinton "has the entire Establishment or almost the entire Establishment behind her. That's a fact." But Hillary said her sex makes that impossible. "Well, look, I've got to just jump in here because, honestly, Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the Establishment. And I've got to tell you that...

    New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is a bit apoplectic that the left, which has always wanted single-payer health care, is still pushing for single-payer health care. "Why," he frets, "do we hear not just conservatives but also many progressives trashing President Obama's biggest policy achievement?" He goes on to say, "A lot of what I hear from the left is not so much a complaint about how the reform falls short as outrage that private insurers get to play any role. The idea seems to be that any role for the profit motive taints the whole effort." Krugman says...

    **SNIP** McGuire, whose state organization, like the national party apparatus, is solidly behind Clinton, rejected the request, telling the Register in an interview Tuesday, "These are the final results." Democrats have never released actual head counts in Iowa caucuses, and McGuire flatly said they would not be released this time either. On Thursday, the Register published an editorial headlined, "Something smells in the Democratic Party," denouncing state party officials for refusing to agree to an audit or release details of the voting. "What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period," the Register wrote. "Democracy, particularly at...

    SEOUL/TOKYO, Feb 7 (Reuters) - North Korea launched a long-range rocket on Sunday carrying what it has called a satellite, but its neighbours and Washington denounced the launch as a missile test, conducted in defiance of U.N. sanctions and just weeks after a nuclear bomb test. The U.S. Strategic Command said it had detected a missile entering space, and South Korea's military said the rocket had put an object into orbit. North Korea said the launch of its satellite Kwangmyongsong-4, named after late leader Kim Jong Il, was a "complete success" and that it was making a polar orbit of...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow co-moderated last night’s Democratic debate, and while she did receive praise for asking tough, substantive questions, she did receive criticism because of the very fact that she was an outspoken liberal commentator moderating a presidential debate. Oh, and also the fact that she hugged both candidates. On Fox News tonight, Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz had their doubts about Maddow’s claim she would do the same for Republicans, with Kurtz insisting “she should not have been on that stage.” Kelly, however, pointed out that the RNC has pushed for conservative commentators to co-moderate their debates (i.e....

On Thursday, Ballinger, 21, of New York City, was arraigned in Ithaca City Court and was sent to Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond. University police said they identified him as the perpetrator "with the assistance of the victim."

    In the Iowa Democratic party's chaotic attempt to report caucus results on Monday night, the results in at least one precinct were unilaterally changed by the party as it attempted to deal with the culmination of a rushed and imperfect process overseeing the first-in-the-nation nominating contest. In Grinnell Ward 1, the precinct where elite liberal arts college Grinnell College is located, 19 delegates were awarded to Bernie Sanders and seven were awarded to Hillary Clinton on caucus night. However, the Iowa Democratic party decided to shift one delegate from Sanders to Clinton on the night and did not notify precinct...

    New York is taking steps to stop therapists from trying to change young people's sexual orientation, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday, joining a number of states that have acted against what's known as gay conversion therapy. The Democratic governor's move, announced Saturday, comes as gay rights advocates have campaigned state by state with mixed results to try to ban a practice that major mental health organizations have repudiated. Using executive power in a state where legislative bids to ban the therapy have stalled, Cuomo announced planned regulations that would bar insurance coverage for the therapy for minors and prohibit mental...

    The partner of rookie cop Peter Liang told Brooklyn jurors Thursday that he himself was unqualified to resuscitate the man Liang accidently shot in a housing-project stairwell — because the Police Academy lets ­recruits cheat on their CPR- certification tests. So he did nothing to help the dying victim. “How much time [during training] did you spend on a mannequin?” the partner, Shaun Landau, was asked by Liang’s defense lawyer, ­Robert E. Brown. “Not sure,” Landau ad­mitted. “Less than two minutes?” the lawyer asked. “Yes,” Landau answered. Jurors learned Thursday that nothing could have saved unarmed Akai Gurley from the...

    Excerpted KANAB — Most of the people who came to the funeral of LaVoy Finicum didn't know the Arizona rancher personally. They came anyway, in trucks and campers and caravans, drawn either by kinship with the Finicum family or by sympathy for the cause that took him to rural Oregon. The Arizona rancher was one of the most recognizable faces of the armed standoff in Oregon, where a group of protesters seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in early January to protest what they said was federal overreach into Western rangelands. Finicum was shot dead by police on Jan. 26...

    The results of the Iowa caucus proved that even Iowans-long seen as fervent proponents of ethanol-don't view Washington's favoritism to it as necessarily still required. Much like many campaigns out there, the Renewable Fuel Standard that mandates the use of biofuels in our gasoline has been full of empty promises. When Congress passed the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2005 and expanded the mandate in 2007, policymakers promised reduced dependence on foreign oil, a new source of cleaner energy to lower gas prices, a stronger economy, and an improved environment.This was certainly wishful thinking, as none of it has come true.Instead,...

But Clinton offered a message that the collected plutocrats found reassuring, according to accounts offered by several attendees, declaring that the banker-bashing so popular within both political parties was unproductive and indeed foolish. Striking a soothing note on the global financial crisis, she told the audience, in effect: We all got into this mess together, and we’re all going to have to...

The task force will conduct hearings and investigations “relating to separation of powers and executive overreach issues,” according to the resolution approved on a voice vote on Wednesday. It’s unclear which of President Obama’s executive actions the task force will focus on, but immigration policies will...

    O.J. Simpson has spent the past eight years locked up in Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center for his role in the 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping of a Las Vegas sports memorabilia dealer. He is not fairing well, his former business manager, Nick Pardo, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He's a broken man," says Pardo. "He's really becoming a recluse and doesn't want to talk to anybody, including his own family." Adds Pardo, "He just wants to serve his time and part of him knows the only way to do that is to forget the outside world exists, which is hard to do...

    This year's presidential primary is the first in which New Hampshire's voters will be required to show identification before they can cast their ballots ... When New Hampshire voters go to the polls Tuesday for the first presidential primary of the 2016 race, they will have to do something new.

Before the state's new voter ID law went into effect in 2013, voters could just give their name and address, get checked off the roll, and...

    Federal prosectors argued at a hearing in November that Gilberto Hernandez-Ordunez should be locked up before trial, noting he faced decades in prison on a cocaine charge and was likely to flee to Mexico because he was in the U.S. illegally. Federal law presumes someone like Hernandez-Ordunez, who was found with 15 kilograms of cocaine brought to Milwaukee sealed in metal elevator parts. U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin saw the case differently. He released the 34-year-old on a signature bond with no electronic monitoring, noting he had no criminal history, was employed and had strong family ties to Milwaukee. Now,...

    New Hampshire Union Leader ^ | February 5, 2016 | John R Lott Jr
    Hillary Clinton has made gun control a major part of her presidential campaign, at least in New Hampshire. Over the last month, a quarter of all of her campaign ads in New Hampshire have focused on gun control. In rural areas of Iowa, by contrast, she did not run a single ad related to gun control. In all of Iowa, just six percent of her ads discussed guns. Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, recently wrote in the Union Leader attacking Bernie Sanders. He recycles Clinton’s rhetoric on the issue. Gross asserts: “Brady background checks...

    Team Clinton seized on this report yesterday, claiming it was an email scandal "game-changer" that shifts the terrain of a controversy that has plagued Hillary's campaign for months. It is, and does, nothing of the sort, for reasons we'll address in a moment. First, the basics, via Politico: Former Secretary of State Colin Powell said the FBI has contacted him about his use of personal email when he was the nation's top diplomat, as a review conducted by the State Department inspector general concluded that Powell and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice both received classified information through private email accounts...The State Department...

    Gunmen disguised as police opened fire on boxing fans at a Dublin hotel Friday, killing one man and wounding two others in an attack that could reflect tensions within Ireland's top cocaine-smuggling gang.

Witnesses inside the ballroom hosting the ceremony saw two other men in the crowd, including one disguised as a woman, running away holding handguns.

    Critics are blasting Hillary Clinton for claiming at Thursday night's Democratic debate nothing will come of the FBI probe into her email practices and seizing on reports that other former officials received classified information on personal accounts -- saying she's glossing over glaring differences between her case and theirs. "The attempt to paint her predecessors in the State Department as equal offenders in mishandling classified material is an insult to what we now know to be the truth," Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said in a statement Thursday, calling the argument an "everybody did it" defense. Clinton pointed at the debate...

    A top Senate Republican is warning that the federal Bureau of Prisons could be letting Muslim groups with terror ties vet chaplains and religious instructors, increasing the risk of indoctrination and radicalism behind bars. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, in a letter to the agency, flagged "recent revelations that the bureau enlisted an organization previously found to have ties to terrorist organizations" to screen potential Islamic chaplains. "It is imperative that the BOP take every measure possible to ensure the safety of its personnel within federal prisons and take all reasonable measures to ensure that Islamic extremism is...
