  • One Of Hillary’s Top VP Picks Also Destroyed Emails, Used A Secret Account

    The Daily Caller ^ | 07/20/2016 | MICHAEL BASTASCH
    One of the top candidates being considered for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Running mate in 2016 has had some email problems of his own. Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa and President Barack Obama’s current secretary of agriculture, was caught up in a 2004 scandal that resulted in emails being “inadvertently” destroyed. Vilsack partially blamed himself for destroying emails regarding the Iowa Department of Economic Development Foundation. The Des Moines Register had requested the emails. Vilsack’s response to the controversy, rather ironically, mirrored Clinton’s response to her own email scandal: he basically said he was old and...

    Donald Trump has a habit of boasting about his prestigious pedigree as a graduate of Wharton School of Finance. It turns out the feelings aren’t mutual. Current and former students of the elite University of Pennsylvania business school have penned an open letter that sends a loud message to the presumptive GOP nominee: “You do not represent us.” The scathing letter, published Friday on Medium, has been signed by over 600 people who want to distance themselves from the billionaire buffoon, who frequently flaunts about his Wharton roots to boost his credentials. “We, proud students, alumni, and faculty of Wharton,...

    Do you think the families and loved ones of the Orlando victims wish Omar Mateen’s father, an anti-American Afghani, had never been permitted to enter the United States? Do you think the great majority of Americans agree? The answer seems obvious: but not to the clueless cast of Morning Joe, which today trashed Donald Trump’s call for a ban on Muslim immigration. Mika Brzezinski epitomized the willful blindness, claiming the Muslim ban has “no connection at all” to the Pulse massacre. View the video here.

    Video;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ABh3tBFTMo Last week in San Jose, California, supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump found themselves surrounded by violent far-left protesters, most of whom were apparently supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Several Trump supporters were assaulted amid ugly scenes - but apparently they weren't the only ones "feeling the Bern." In fact, video footage from the day shows how at one point, several Bernie supporters apparently mistook each other for Trump fans, and promptly began a violent brawl - before realizing they were all on the same side. In a somewhat comical scene, as other Sanders supporters...

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney blasted Donald Trump on Wednesday after his successor hinted that it is unlikely he will release his tax returns before the November election. "It is disqualifying for a modern-day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters, especially one who has not been subject to public scrutiny in either military or public service," Romney wrote in Facebook post. "There is only one logical explanation for Mr. Trump's refusal to release his returns," he wrote Wednesday. "There is a bombshell in them. Given Mr. Trump's equanimity with other flaws in his history,...

    Kwame Gates, who goes by the rapper name K-Gates, has produced a documentary about violence in New Orleans, called "Murda Capital." He is hoping to shed light on the problems facing this city and stop the cycle of murder and violent crime. Even though he is a rapper, he believes the rap culture has had a strong influence on young people, glorifying drugs, money and violence. He introduced us to Althea Phillips, whose four sons were all killed in gun violence. As we left her house, Gates introduced us to a couple of rappers who call themselves the 8-9 Boys....

    For approximately 50 some odd years the US had a different 13th amendment than what is currently listed today. Someone would be hard pressed to say the original 13th was never ratified after reading through the historical documents, pictures, and records contained on this site. It passed the Senate on April 27th 1810 by a vote of 26 to 1. It passed the House on May 1st by a vote of 87-3. The 13th’s official ratification date is March 12th, 1819. Virginia was the last state required to ratify it. A good place to start is with the chronology link...

    Ruling: Private logging must comply with ESAPORTLAND (AP) -- A Portland judge recently ruled that Oregon's state forester must hold private landowners to tighter logging regulations. U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown ruled that the state must ensure that the private logging projects it approves adhere to the federal Endangered Species Act. The ruling was in response to a February lawsuit five conservation groups brought against State Forester James Brown, who reviews all logging in Oregon to see that it complies with the state Forest Practices Act. The five groups said Brown routinely violated the U.S. Endangered Species Act by...

She said that the question of what is morally right is routinely sacrificed to what is politically expedient. The change has come because legal philosophy has descended to nihilism "The integrity of law, its religious roots, its transcendent quality are disappearing. I saw the movie 'Chicago' with Richard Gere the other day. That's the way the public thinks about lawyers,"...

    In the past, left-wing student activists at UC Berkeley have joined unions in pushing for higher wages, including a “living wage,” for campus staff. Campus minimum wages have lagged behind local minimum wages because the university, as a public state institution, is exempt from local minimums. On Monday, University of California Berkeley chancellor Nicholas Dirks announced that the educational institution will be eliminating 500 jobs over the course of two years, which will wind up saving an estimated $50 million. “My concern and the public’s concern is that UC Berkeley is going to start cutting the people it can ill...

But as the primary season ramped up, Towers, who is Mormon, increasingly found herself turned off by Trump. “We have values and standards that he doesn’t hold dear,” Towers said of herself and other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As Trump continues to gain support from nearly every demographic that makes up the Republican primary voting base, primary results show that he is lagging behind with a small group: Mormon voters. -snip- Meanwhile, the...

Well, even the committee acknowledged at the time they weren’t giving it to him for accomplishments already made, but those hoped for.

    I’ll say this right here at the beginning: Shooting a drone out of the sky is probably a bad idea. But, if you’re dead set on taking down one of those unmanned flying camera copters, Snake River Shooting Products makes a shotgun shell made for that specific purpose. The packaging says, “Prepare for the drone apocalypse!” which is either a joke or a really alarmist thing to make people feel paranoid. The shells are full of #2 steel shot, which is rather big, meaning that hitting a drone from a reasonable range with one of these would likely reduce it...

    Have you ever been driving along, listening to the latest hit song on a Top 20 radio station, and thought, “Man, these lyrics are really dumb?” Well, you’re not alone. According to a new study conducted by data wiz Andrew Powell-Morse, the lyrics for the last decade’s No. 1 hit songs average a third-grade reading level.

    Former Cardinals outfielder Curt Ford said Thursday he may move away from the St. Louis area in disgust after being punched in an allegedly unprovoked, race-related attack at a gas station. “I’m going to let the authorities handle this situation, but I’ve had enough of St. Louis,” Ford said in a phone interview Thursday. “You hear about this kind of stuff happening, and I always knew it existed because of my previous experience working here in St. Louis, but you try to keep away from it, and there is just no way you can do that unless you stay inside...
