    Well, that didn't take long. A "senior Obama administration official" is breaking ranks to call out his boss in Time magazine about Libya.In an article published online Sunday night, Time writer Massimo Calabresi buries the lede by holding the bombshell quotes until the fourth paragraph, preferring to write about himself the first three.The quotes have the official all but calling Obama a liar over his stated reasons for going to war in Libya. The article also has the official saying Obama is knowingly taking a "huge gamble" because al Qaeda has cells in Libya that could benefit from the the...
  • Desperate Hillary: Trump supporters: ‘dark, divisive, dangerous’ and in need of intervention

    She's 'sick and tired' of you. I suspect that, somewhere in the cancerous bowels of Clinton campaign HQ, there are some ugly internal polling numbers. The candidate, and her surrogates, are starting to sound scared - the kind of “scared” you hear from people who thought something was in the bag, only to have the rug pulled out from under them at the last minute. You can see it everywhere you look. Hillary’s cronies are melting down during interviews, Obama has abandoned his ‘hands off’ stance in regards to James Comey and seems upset by black voter turnout, and Hillary...

    Hello fellow FREEPer prayer warriors and believers! This evening, we got an email from our employer that portends some very bad news. To put it simply, one of the adults in the household is highly likely to be facing reduced (perhaps down to zero) income in the very near future. We use this income for, as you can imagine, to pay essential bills. We care for an elderly relative, living at home, who has dementia. And we care for a youngster in college. Essentially this is, dare I say: Not good. So, God is greater than all of this and...
  • What kind of “intervention” was Hillary calling for against “Bill’s a Rapist

    Canada Free Press is asking the man who was forcibly removed from Clinton’s Detroit rally yesterday to send a message over the world wide web that he arrived home safely. Can anyone attest to the fate of the African-American man who courageously wore a shirt featuring a likeness of Bill Clinton with the word “RAPE” emblazoned across the front, since Hillary Clinton openly called for someone to follow him and “stage an intervention”? Given the track record of suspicious disappearances and worse for individuals who have openly criticized the Clintons, wanting to know if he arrived home safely is surely...

    Oops! This wasn’t supposed to happen. A student(?) in a Bill Clinton rape T-shirt popped up behind Hillary at Wayne State University rally. A Black man was thrown out at the Hillary Clinton #OH rally for wearing a Bill Clinton wearing RAPE shirt. From the video: Hillary says, " I hope that someone follows that young man out and stages an intervention..."

    Hillary Clinton encouraged supporters Monday to follow and stage an intervention for a protester who was removed by security after he interrupted her rally in Detroit. "You know," Clinton said after the demonstrator was forcibly removed from her campaign event, "I do hope somebody follows that gentleman out and stages an intervention." The demonstrator, and African-American male, was wearing a shirt featuring a likeness of Bill Clinton with the word "RAPE" printed across the front.

    Worried Republican leaders are plotting an "intervention" with presidential candidate Donald Trump in a desperate bid to get his careening campaign back on track. Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich are among Trump supporters reportedly hoping to talk some sense into him before he blows the election and brings the party down with him. They hope to enlist the aid of Trump's children who are believed to have the biggest pull with their dad, reports NBC News.

  • Rep. Jack Kingston: Marco Rubio’s Tough National Security Talk is Cheap

    Redstate ^ | Friday February 19, 2016 | Congressman Jack Kingston
    On the campaign trail, Senator Marco Rubio has been pushing a media narrative that he is the most “serious” foreign policy candidate. It’s an odd position since he missed all but one of the 19 votes connected to the National Defense Authorization Act last year! But far more damaging than his missed votes is his inability to learn from our past national security mistakes. Whether it’s Libya, border security, or major security gaps in our visa and refugee programs, when he has voted, it’s often on the side of misplaced liberal ideals and illegal immigrants instead of America’s One disturbing...
  • How Far Will The U.S. Go If Turkey Invades Syria?

    The proposed major military assault into Syria holds considerable risk for Turkey, not the least of that being a possible accidental escalation of hostilities with Russia, but it now seems unavoidable if Ankara is not to see a major disaster, not only wasting more than five years of intense effort to overthrow the Syrian Gov-ernment of President Bashar al-Assad, but also to avert the unfettered escalation of the Kurdish war to wrench a large part of Turkey away from Ankara to create a new Kurdish state which would link with Iraqi and Syrian Kurds. Already, Turkey has paid an enormous...

    A judge in New York on Monday ordered the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to post $10 million in cash or bond while they appeal a jury's finding that they supported terrorist attacks in Israel, Reuters reported. At a court hearing in Manhattan, U.S. District Judge George Daniels said the defendants must also deposit $1 million each month pending the appeal of a February jury verdict worth $655 million in favor of 10 American families. The order came a week after the Obama administration took the unusual step of urging Daniels to "carefully consider" the PA’s...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Burton G. Malkiel
    The biggest drop in Chinese stocks in eight years Monday is another sign that Beijing’s efforts to prop up prices have failed. Moreover, the interventions themselves have made China’s equity markets more volatile and damaged their credibility in the long run. To stabilize stock prices, Beijing has employed numerous techniques, including suspending trading for a time on well over half of listed A-shares. Short sales were banned, and major shareholders were prohibited from selling. New initial public offerings were disallowed. China needs more professional participants in its equities markets. But why should institutions buy when the government can control if...

    TRENTON, N.J. -- The pretrial intervention program offered to Ray Rice in the assault case involving his wife was granted in less than 1 percent of all domestic violence assault cases from 2010-13 that were resolved, according to New Jersey Judiciary data obtained Friday by "Outside the Lines." Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, were arrested on Feb. 15 and charged with simple assault after an incident at an Atlantic City casino. Janay's charges were later dropped, but on March 27, an Atlantic City grand jury increased Rice's assault charge to aggravated assault-bodily injury in the third degree causing bodily...

    Hillary Clinton has been working full-time to control the story of her time as Secretary of State. That was the point of her clunky, largely unread book, and the point of her awkward, gaffe-laden book tour. Clinton argues (plausibly) that she wanted a more activist approach to Syria than that served up by her boss. She argues (implausibly) that she wasn’t really sold on the “reset” with Russia. As to Libya, Clinton’s priority must be to duck, to the extent possible, the political fallout from the killing of our ambassador and three other Americans by terrorists in Benghazi. But what...

    Gennady Zyuganov (head of the Communist Party of Russia)at the meeting with journalists on Monday made several constructive ideas: the introduction of a no-fly zone, border control and cross-border corridors for Russian volunteers, riding on Donbass. "We have a full right member of the security Council to declare a no-fly zone over this territory and to contribute to any military objects, which will appear on this territory, were eliminated," he said. He added that this must be done for the security of the local population. "To watch them from planes shot of the city and civilians, to look at the...

    Russian military forces are “pulsing the border” and making a “run toward Ukraine” — but pulling up well short — in their “training exercise," U.S. officials told NBC News on Thursday. But it’s not clear whether the Russian forces are actually preparing to cross the border into Ukraine or simply putting on a “show of force,” the officials said. They added that there is no strong indication that the Russians are preparing to invade but still stick by their earlier estimate that from their current positions, these troops could launch a complex invasion and be inside Ukraine in less than...

    Polls: Americans Repeatedly Say "No!" to U.S. Intervention in Ukraine 21 March 2014 In polls taken over the past few weeks by a number of opinion survey and news organizations, the American people have sent a remarkably unified message to President Obama and the U.S. Congress: “Stay out of Ukraine!” Despite being peppered with a constant onslaught of dramatic news video footage from Kiev and the Crimea, as well as a visit to the Obama White House by Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk, and the usual stable of policy “experts” from the Brookings Institution and the Council on Foreign...
