    The Obama administration has steadfastly defended Planned Parenthood and its taxpayer funding throughout the scandal exposing its sales of aborted babies and their body parts for research. Now, new information reveals the Obama administration has been expanding funding for such research. The federal government has paid for so-called fetal tissue research for decades but the Obama administration, according to a report in The Hill, a Congressional newspaper, has expanded that funding. The report indicates the federal government spent $19 million on research involving the body parts of aborted babies in 1999 at the end of the Clinton administration. Now, President...

    Democratic strategist James Carville slammed “tool of the Koch Brothers” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), saying he “just feeds the New York Times stuff, and they put it in the paper. Just like the neocons fed the New York Times a bunch of bunk they put on the front page of the paper, basically helped start a war” on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” Carville said of the Clinton email scandal, “my question is, will this rise to the level of scandal as the white house christmas card list back in the ’90s that had 140 hours...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9-2-15 | Richard Pollock
    Hillary Clinton violated numerous State Department rules by using privately owned thumb drives to copy 30,000 of her official emails for her lawyer, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. The former Secretary of State in December 2014 downloaded 30,000 government emails created during her tenure in the position from her private server onto three commercial thumb drives, which her lawyer, David Kendall, transported to Washington, D.C. The State Department released 7,000 new Clinton emails Monday, including at least 125 that were treated by the department as classified. The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation into the handling of...

    L A Times ^ | September 2, 2015, 11:42 AM | By Ben Poston and Kate Mather
    Crime has jumped across the city this year, but nowhere has the increase been as large as in L.A.'s hippest new domain: downtown. Here, the forces of rapid gentrification are crashing up against the chronic poverty, homelessness and crime that have long been a part of life in the city center. Police and residents say the influx of new lofts, luxury high-rise apartments, bars and eateries have made these new downtown dwellers easy targets for street crime. "Those two communities are rubbing up against each other and for some reason it has gotten more aggressive," Mishkind said. "We understand there...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Wednesday blasted the Obama administration for reducing the debate on the Iran nuclear deal to "a partisan contest" that "raises even more serious questions about its durability and merits." "While the president may be able to sustain a veto with the tepid, restricted and partisan support of one third of one House of Congress over Americans' bipartisan opposition, it will require a bipartisan Congress to strengthen our defenses in the Persian Gulf and to stand up to the inevitable Iranian violations of the agreement that will need to be addressed after he has left office,"...

    The latest stash of emails from Hillary Clinton's private server released by the State Department has (once again!) revealed Washington to be a particularly unbearable place, employing particularly insufferable people. From Clinton's email correspondence with her senior staff we can observe how those with proximity to power engage in rare forms of backstabbing, obsequiousness, pettiness, bad humor, and self-obsession. There was the revelation that Huma Abedin, Clinton's aide-de-camp who held down multiple six-figure salaries at outside consulting firms while making $135,000 at State, apparently complains about not getting "paid enough." Another top Clinton aide, Philippe Reines, was seen tattling on...

    Police departments face a recruiting shortage amid a growing anti-cop mood that some fear has taken the pride out of peacekeeping and put targets on the backs of the men and women in blue. Open calls for the killing of police have been followed by assassinations, including last week's murder in Texas of a Harris County sheriff's deputy. Instead of dialing back the incendiary rhetoric, groups including "Black Lives Matter" have instead doubled down at demonstrations with chants of "Pigs in a blanket, fry me like bacon." Public safety officials fear the net effect has been to demonize police, and...

    Bonn (AFP) - Inadequate national targets for curbing climate-altering greenhouse gases meant emissions would be "far above" the level required to stave off disastrous global warming, analysts warned Wednesday. Instead of the UN-targeted ceiling of two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) of average warming over pre-Industrial Revolution levels, the world was on track for 2.9-3.1 C by 2100, according to the Climate Action Tracker (CAT), a tool developed by a consortium of four research organisations. "The climate targets so far submitted to the UN by governments collectively lead to global emissions far above the levels needed to hold warming to...

It’s not because she demanded skim milk for her tea, though any discerning tea-drinker would always insist on at least semi-skim. It’s not because she couldn’t work out how to watch ‘Parks and Recreation’ or ‘The Good Wife’ on catch-up TV, though coupled with her general apparent ignorance of all new technology this does little to negate the nagging sense that she’s simply too old for the top job in America. It’s not because her aides sometimes go 100 hours without sleep, though this...

There was no surprise there. Markey had topped the list of candidates supported by the Iran Lobby. And the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) had maxed out its contributions to his campaign. After more fake suspense, Al Franken, another IAPAC backed politician who also benefited from Iran Lobby money, came out for the...

    National Review ^ | 09/02/2015 | Mark Krikorian
    A new report by my colleague Steven Camarota finds that most immigrant households use welfare. That immigrants receive taxpayer-funded benefits at higher rates than the native-born isn’t a new finding. But previous research (including by CIS) has never found such a high rate. The reason is that Camarota used a different Census Bureau data source, the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), that is more difficult to use but, as its name suggests, provides the most comprehensive view of welfare use (a.k.a “program participation”). The study shows that 51 percent of immigrant-headed households use at least one welfare...

  • Cameroon involved in Central Africa ‘blood diamond’ traffic, UN says

    Illicit trafficking of diamonds from the Central African Republic into neighbouring Cameroon is helping finance the continuation of a nearly three-year conflict, an expert panel that monitors UN sanctions has said in a confidential report. The Central African Republic (CAR) descended into chaos in March 2013 when predominantly Muslim Seleka rebels seized power, triggering reprisals by "anti-balaka" Christian militias. They drove tens of thousands of Muslims from the south into a de facto partition of the landlocked country. Although rival armed groups agreed to a peace accord in May, the conflict has continued at a lower intensity, and a transitional...

    A few weeks ago, Trump posted his proposed immigration policy and, predictably, drew praise from those who want to strengthen America and self-serving condemnation from those who want to weaken us. The Mexican government itself provides some of the best evidence that Trump is exactly right when he says that Mexico intentionally sends a portion of their population across our borders illegally. In fact, they even publish a how-to guide for Mexicans seeking to illegally enter and remain in the United States. As stated in Trump’s immigration policy (and reported by the New York Times, that bastion of anti-immigrant sentiment),...

    The Virginia shootings have rekindled the long-running debate on gun ownership in America with figures showing that there have been 247 mass shooting incidents in the US in 238 days so far this year. While America’s attention was focused on the horrific murder of two young journalists in Roanoke, Virginia, another mass shooting on the same day saw four people wounded during a home invasion in Minnesota. The figures for the multiple shootings have been compiled by GunsAreCool, a sarcastically named group which tracks gun violence in the US.

Kenny was also charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

    The takeaway moment from the latest fetal tissue video comes when a woman identified as Advanced BioScience Resources’s Perrin Larton recounts cases in which the fetus “just fell out” during an abortion procedure. Depending on what happened next, that could be an unfortunate accident — or it could be a violation of the national Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. Released Tuesday, the ninth undercover video from the pro-life Center for Medical Progress fuels the growing contention that those involved in the fetal tissue procurement business, including Planned Parenthood, may have broken as many as a half-dozen federal laws.

The undercover operation of the Center for Medical Progress revealed Planned Parenthood’s government subsidized abortion and political business has also been raising funds by harvesting and selling fetal body parts. Nothing is off the table – brain matter, eyes, hands, livers, hearts, lungs, and assorted tissue from aborted infants in various stages of development. The accompanying videos show Planned Parenthood abortion doctors talking about their work as if its just another day at the office, and they are negotiating bulk sales of...

    A new undercover sting video from the Center for Medical Progress shows a fetal organ procurement director complaining about how pro-lifers are making business difficult for baby organ traffickers. The video features a conversation between a prospective baby organ buyer/researcher and Perrin Larton, the procurement director for Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), a California-based non-profit organ middleman. In one portion of the video, Larton brags that while President George W. Bush banned federal funding for research on new embryonic stem cell lines, taxpayer-funded research on aborted baby body parts was not banned. “Now they’re trying to make abortion illegal, and that’s...

    Trump is America’s answer to Hugo Chávez. If by now you don’t find Donald Trump appalling, you’re appalling. If you have reached physical maturity and still chuckle at Mr. Trump’s pubescent jokes about Rosie O’Donnell or Heidi Klum, you will never reach mental maturity. If you watched Mr. Trump mock fellow candidate Lindsey Graham’s low poll numbers and didn’t cringe at the lack of class, you are incapable of class. If you think we need to build new airports in Queens the way they build them in Qatar, you should be sent to join the millions of forced laborers who...

    51 percent of immigrant households—both legal and illegal—receive some kind of public assistance, versus just 30 percent of native households. Whether immigrants contribute more to total economic activity or public revenues greater than they receive in benefits is not addressed in this report, and remains a subject of fierce controversy. ... This study is the first in recent years to examine immigrant (legal and illegal) and native welfare use using the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). While its complexity makes it difficult to use, the survey is widely regarded as providing the most accurate picture of...

    Hillary Clinton’s emails reveal the prominence of the Clinton Foundation in her activities as America’s top diplomat, and whether she drew the line between official US business and aiding the family charity run by Bill and Chelsea.

In one email, Chelsea, in Haiti, sent her thoughts about...

    Milwaukee County Sherriff David A. Clarke Jr. criticized the idea that President Barack Obama’s call for reforming the police is helping law enforcement and is instead weakening “the institution of policing,” adding that the solution is to “fix the ghetto” and stop trying to “fix the police.” […] “Look, President Obama has breathed life into this ugly movement,” said Clarke. “And it is time now for good, law-abiding Americans to rise up, like they did in Houston around that Chevron station [where the deputy sheriff was murdered], an outpouring.” “But it just can’t be symbolic,” said the sheriff. “We now...

    Second Amendment groups are accusing the gun control lobby of putting law-abiding owners of firearms in danger by urging people to call the police on anyone carrying a gun in public. As more states relax rules about open-carrying of guns, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has taken to social media to urge the public to assume gun-toters are trouble, and to call the cops on anyone they feel may be a threat.

    Solomon reports part of concern about the information being unsecured on Clinton’s home server is that it could have been hacked by the North Koreans–who would then know more about U.S. spying capabilities. Solomon reports the information was likely summarized from a secure site and sent in unclassified systems up the chain to Clinton. “One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites. “Multiple intelligence sources...

    President Obama is off to Alaska to re-name a mountain. Well, isn’t that special. If the people of Alaska want it, I’m all for it. It is their mountain. Of course, some rather important things have happened over the last few days. There was that Deputy that was executed last Friday. Deputy Darren H. Goforth was married, and the father of two, aged 5 and 12. Shannon J. Miles, thirty, has a wrap sheet of resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct with a firearm. Some minor infractions but nothing like what he allegedly did when he walked up behind Deputy...

Crews was asked, whether “Black Lives Matter activists hate police officers?” In light of the video showing activists chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.”
