    (CNSNews.com) – One day after the United States handed over to the Iraqi authorities a Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist accused of killing at least five American soldiers, Iraqi officials were quoted as saying the prisoner will face criminal charges – for illegal entry. Iraqi officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Associated Press Saturday that Ali Musa Daqduq would be prosecuted for entering the country with an illegal passport, an offense carrying a prison term of just over five years.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department has provided Congress with 1,364 pages of documents detailing how the department gave inaccurate information to a U.S. senator in the controversy surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, the flawed law enforcement initiative aimed at dismantling major arms trafficking networks on the Southwest border. In a letter last February to Charles Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Justice Department said that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had not knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to a straw purchaser

    On Wednesday, the Budget and Finance Committee of the Board of Supervisors will take up a bill that would give a payroll tax credit to local employers who hire ex-felons.

    And to think thatAttorney General Eric Holder is getting testy about congressional calls for his resignation. After all, the Justice Department has nothing to hide, right?: The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico. This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the “most transparent” administration in history? After all, the rifle used...

  • Man Sentenced for Sending Facebook Friend Request to Sex Victim

    WENTWORTH, N.C. (WGHP)— A convicted sex offender was sentenced to 66-89 months in prison Thursday after officials said he sent a Facebook "friend request" to one of his victims.

    The Los Angeles Times opened up a new front in the Solyndra scandal on Friday (and there are too many fronts to count at this point), reporting that Steve Spinner, another prominent Obama donor, served as a top official in the Energy Department program that made the half-billion dollar loan to the now bankrupt solar panel maker. In Spinner's defense, he did recuse himself from the decision to grant the loan—because his wife works at a law firm that represented Solyndra. Still, as the Times notes, these conflicts of interest did not prevent Spinner from spinning for Solyndra—without any disclosure...

Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, said. “Last year, President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt was granted asylum and now his illegal immigrant uncle has been released from [the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency] custody, even though he was arrested by authorities for...

    If you're looking for proof that Too Big to Fail is still alive, and that Washington won't leave large financial institutions to the mercies of capitalism, consider billionaire Obama fundraiser Warren Buffett's $5 billion bet on struggling Bank of America. Buffett, who recently won plaudits for advocating higher taxes, has spent four years betting on bailouts and big government -- and tilting the playing field in that direction by putting his money and prestige at the service of Barack Obama. Buffett gave the maximum donation to Obama in 2007 -- $4,600 to his campaign, and $28,500 to the Democratic National...

This one is not based on arguments or facts, but on sheer abuse of the powers he has as President. Kenneth Vogel writes in Politico that President Obama is "considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections." These measures appear broad in scope: The White House last week began circulating a draft executive...

The good news is that the recall folks say that they still have enough signatures, so it should have no insurmountable effect on the recall process, but you can expect that local Democrats will try to wring as much...

Often, in the public and private sectors, job applicants are asked to check a box indicating whether they have a criminal record. Mr. Burgess said his "ban the box" legislation is modeled on that of other cities and a handful of states.

    The original article is (New York Times): The Bay Citizen: I.R.S. Looks at Finances of Bay Area Clinic There is a FreeRepublic thread on this as well: I.R.S. Looks at Finances of Bay Area Clinic [ IRS ] This situation was so criminal and so bad that Planned Parenthood tossed the clinics in question out of the Planned Parenthood network. Coverup. That is the word to describe. If a coverup happens to some liberal sacred cow such as Planned Parenthood, the New York Times will ignore. However, if it a conservative situation, the New York Times will throw all their...

    If someone were to write Insurance Fraud for Dummies, it might include such advice as: Before you fake an injury, make sure there's an actual crash. Also, don't get caught on video running a quarter-block to board a bus after an accident. "It's almost comical," said Assistant District Attorney Linda Montag. On Nov. 19, 2008, a SEPTA bus made contact with a taxi in the 1300 block of Walnut Street about 2 p.m., she said. "It was a very small tap by a taxicab. There wasn't even a scratch on the bus," she said. Yet three people - including two...

    Exposing the Planned Parenthood business model by Abby Johnson Wed Apr 06 1:19 PM EST April 6, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Myths about Planned Parenthood are spreading like grassfire. Thanks to a perfect storm of events, the abortion provider is scrambling to cauterize the biggest PR hit it has ever sustained. November’s election of an overwhelmingly pro-life Congress, revelation of numerous violations by its staff and repeated calls for its defunding by social and fiscal conservatives alike have put Planned Parenthood’s lifeblood on the line. Planned Parenthood’s bottom line is numbers. And, with abortion as its primary money-maker, that means implementing...

    This is an article written by an ex IRS investigator....very interesting. Trump is correct, Barry Soetoro, AKA Obama is hiding something in his past that is very bad... and it may not be his citizenship. (Trump would not say this if he did not know something and he has the money to get the dirt...) As an IRS tax examiner,one of many former federal jobs, I have seen what it appears Barry Soetoro has done, mostly by illegal aliens attempting to acquire a new identity in the U.S and/or criminals looking to acquire a new ID. Barry, AKA Obama, was...

    A batty Brooklyn mom who admitted to inducing the abortion of her two-timing husband's love child was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison. Kisha Jones, 40, who has already been jailed for 17 months following her diabolical deed, has about two more years to spend in the clink when factoring time off for good behavior. The mother-of-five tricked her hubby's mistress Monique Hunter, 26, to take cytotec, causing early labor on October 2009. When the baby was born alive, she tried to deceive hospital workers into taking the premature newborn off the respirator. Both Hunter and her child are...

    Last year, it was announced that billionaire George Soros gave his first ever contribution to Media Matters, an organization that puts a specific emphasis on criticizing the Fox News Channel. Now we may know the reason why Soros has made this donation public. On Sunday’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” on CNN, Soros took a few shots at the Fox News and Rupert Murdoch, the CEO of parent company NewsCorp, accusing the media mogul of using Fox News and his media empire to change the direction of government.
