  • Clinton’s Private Server Crashed Repeatedly, Sowed Confusion at State Department

    National Review ^ | 09/01/2015 | by BRENDAN BORDELON
    New Hillary Clinton e-mails released in a late-night document dump Monday reveal how the former secretary of state’s use of a private e-mail account sowed confusion in the State Department, with government IT professionals unaware that she was using a private — and apparently buggy — computer server to conduct official business. On February 27, 2010, State Department computer technician Christopher Butzgy sent an e-mail titled “E-mail test” to Clinton’s private e-mail account. “I work as a help desk analyst and it has come to my attention that one of our customers has been receiving permanent fatal errors from this...

  • Professor will flunk students who refer to students as ‘male’ or ‘female’

    August 31, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Multiple professors at one college are using their positions of authority to regulate their students’ speech, threatening to flunk or even expel young people from class if they use certain offending phrases in class – like “referring to women/men as females or males.” Gender and homosexuality politics are among the areas the professors are looking to influence the young people in their classes, along with race and immigration ideology. The affronting terms that could land students in hot water in a number of Washington State University classes include “illegal alien” and “illegals,” CampusReform.org reports, but...
  • Missouri man faces execution for raping, killing 15-year-old

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — An inmate scheduled to be executed Tuesday for killing a 15-year-old Missouri girl has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt his punishment, saying the death penalty is unconstitutional. But a detective who helped break the case scoffed at the appeal Monday, saying Roderick Nunley should have been put to death long ago. Nunley and a co-defendant were accused of kidnapping Ann Harrison as she waited for a school bus in Kansas City, then raping and killing the girl in 1989. If the courts don't step in, the 50-year-old Nunley will be lethally injected at 6...

    Anyone who studied U.S. history remembers Seward's Folly — America's purchase of Alaska by then-Secretary of State William H. Seward. Today in the 49th state, the president is carrying out folly of his own. Russia's price tag for Alaska in 1867 was $7.2 million — or 2 cents an acre for a land area twice the size of Texas. At the time, it was seen as an inflated price, but Alaska was soon recognized as strategically important for national security and rich with natural resources — first gold, then oil and gas. Obama's in Alaska for three days not to...

    Comments by Hawaii Governor David Ige this week has left Hawaiian Electric in a quandary regarding its plan to burn regasified LNG shipped from Canada in its oil-fired power plants, a source at the utility said Friday. "We're in a bit of a stew at the moment," the source, who asked not to be identified, said. Ige previously supported using LNG as a transitional fuel as the state moved to 100% renewable generation by 2045. "When it was first proposed, I was willing to support it as a transitional fuel because it had some clear advantages for Hawaii," Ige said...

    The ISIS Takfiri group has threatened to destroy the holy Kaaba in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. A member of the terrorist group posted a message on Twitter, saying that people worship a stone building instead of God and so it should be demolished. The message said if Daesh manages to conquer Makkah, it would raze the Kaaba to the ground on the order of the group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, al-Bawaba news reported. This is not the first time the Takfiri group talks of demolishing the holy place in Makkah.

    Hungary suspended all rail traffic Tuesday from its main terminal in Budapest and cleared the train station of hundreds of migrants trying to board trains for Austria and Germany — the hoped-for end destinations in their flight from turmoil in the Mideast and Asia. Migrants chanting "Freedom! Freedom!" congregated outside the station after being pushed out of the building, joining hundreds more in what has become a transit zone and place of refuge for those fleeing Syria's war and other hotspots.

    President Obama was forced to address the question of whether he is anti-Semitic. In an interview – out today – with the editor of Forward, a publication that covers Jewish American issues, Obama was asked about the charge: Then, I asked, does it hurt you personally when people say that you’re anti-Semitic? “Oh, of course,” he answered quietly, leaning back in his chair, a cup of tea on an adjacent table still untouched. “And there’s not a smidgen of evidence for it, other than the fact that there have been times when I’ve disagreed with a particular Israeli government’s position...

    On August 16, the Israel Defense Forces revealed that Iran has been directing terrorist attacks from Syria against Israelis in the Golan Heights region. Nobody paid attention. Four days later, Iranian-sponsored rockets from Syria struck Israel’s Upper Galilee. Is anybody listening now? ADVERTISEMENT For weeks, supporters of Israel have been warning that the emerging Iran agreement would give Tehran funds that it could use to wage war against Israel through its proxies. But now it turns out that Iran is already waging that war. The question is, who is paying attention? On August 16, a “senior IDF Northern Command officer”...

Since then, I have stated in numerous interviews with local, national and international media that I plan to make my life's work trying to implement effective and reasonable safeguards against this happening again. In recent years we have witnessed similar tragedies unfold on TV: the shooting of a congresswoman in Arizona, the massacre of schoolchildren in Connecticut and of churchgoers in South Carolina. We have to ask ourselves: What do we need to do to stop this insanity? In my case,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Aug. 31, 2015 | GLENN HEGAR
    In November 2014, the leaders of Saudi Arabia made one of the biggest bets in history. Their strategy was flawed, and they’ve already lost. In an OPEC meeting that month, Saudi Arabia announced it would maintain high oil-production levels despite falling prices. The Saudis were betting that by keeping prices low they could protect their market share and kill America’s energy renaissance—a rebirth driven largely by Texas, which produces 37% of America’s oil and 28% of its marketed natural gas. The Saudi strategy seemed to make sense. The conventional wisdom was that energy producers working in “tight” shale formations would...

    It seems that every week we hear about one senseless public shooting after another. After each incident, advocates on both sides of the firearms issue come out, guns blazing, trying to frame the incident in a way that supports their views on the Second Amendment. ADVERTISEMENT What I find mystifying is when politicians contradict themselves on these issues that they claim to be so passionate about, revealing double standards. President Obama recently said, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws. Even in the face of...

    American Thinker ^ | Thomas Lifson
    The headline from Investor’s Business Daily on their own poll uses the word “shock” – “Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump On Deportation of Illegals.” But as Jared Peterson wrote on these pages yesterday, for the last two years Rasmussen polling has demonstrated a huge gap between the overwhelming majority of Americans and the political establishment of the GOP on immigration policy. The IBD polling, which mentions mandatory deportation, reinforces this stunning disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly serve, a chasm that Donald Trump has spotted and used to his huge advantage. IBD editorializes: The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked...

    Those putting party over country try to conceal their votes from the public. Democratic senators supporting President Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal with Iran are cowards. They know that a majority of Americans oppose the deal. Thus, they are running for cover to avoid going on the record and voting against a resolution disapproving the deal. A filibuster to block a vote on the merits altogether is the Democratic Senate caucus’s preferred way out. The White House is reportedly pushing the filibuster strategy even though Obama is virtually certain to have enough votes to sustain a veto of a resolution of...

    A disturbing trend on the rise in the Islamic Republic. I was speaking recently with some Iranians on the ground in Iran when they told me about a recent wedding where a 14-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl got married. They argued that the religious government admires such marriages, and the trend is unfortunately increasing. The authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran gave full permission for this marriage. As the Iranians were telling me about a recent wedding, I was prepared to offer my congratulations until one of the men mentioned that it was between two young children. Here are...

    Even if the Democrats had a strong candidate running, after eight years of the worst President in American history, the smart money would still have to be on a Republican winning the presidency in 2016. Unfortunately for the Left, instead of a strong candidate Democrats have a crook and a Commie dogfighting it out to be their nominee. With that as a background, you start to understand why Democrats could view a candidate as ridiculous as Joe Biden as a potential savior. Of course for Democrats, the problem with having Joe Biden defeat Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to become...

    A South Florida bus driver is upset after he was suspended from work for several days months after he was viciously attacked by a passenger. According to the victim, his employers told him he should have handled the altercation differently. Sixty-six-year-old Ken Legler was on his routine drive July 15 when a woman stepped onto the bus. Legler said she handed over her bus pass, but he noticed it had been tampered with and then called his dispatcher to inform them regarding the pass. "I've been a bus driver 28 years.

Wyoming rancher Andy Johnson believes a man’s land is a man’s land to use wisely. That’s why he built a stock pond for his animals and his family.

Now Castańeda and others fear Trump's talk about erecting a "big beautiful wall" at the border and deporting millions could make it near impossible to find the guest workers they need, and who would obtain legal status under most comprehensive reforms bills. "There are growers out there screaming for labor," said Castańeda, a farm labor contractor in San Luis Obispo County in central California. "The people who are coming...

Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, has not had a seasonal respite from his breakneck fund-raising of earlier this year. Nor has he had a stretch of good headlines. Instead, he’s had Donald J.

The “super PAC” supporting Mr. Bush is set to go on air with television ads this month in the hopes of turning around his numbers. Mike Murphy, his longtime adviser...

New York State, with its relatively strict laws — restrictions that are even tougher in the five boroughs — had 4.2 gun deaths per capita in 2013, the third-fewest number of gun-related deaths nationwide, according to the National Journal’s study released Monday. It examined gun-related deaths of all types — from murders to suicides and accidental shootings — in the year 2013 and found “while it’s certainly true that a number of factors contribute to...

    1. He's advancing a populist economic message Tax-cutting and deregulation have been key parts of Republican orthodoxy since the days of Ronald Reagan.

Poll after poll shows economic security is the most important issue for Republican voters, and Mr Trump's entire message - his anti-illegal-immigration stance, his condemnation of Chinese and Mexican trade practices, his calls for taxation of Wall Street hedge fund managers and his constant touting of his resume as a successful businessman and "job-creator" - is built around...

The report, which outlets including The Daily Caller News Foundation reported at face value, claimed to expose a secret memo. It purportedly described Russian government compensation to the families of 2,000 soldiers who had died in Ukraine’s civil war. The story, which Forbes first broke in English, understandably attracted significant Western media attention and was promoted online by several prominent figures, including former Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt and ex-U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. If the...

    Facing an imploding stock market and the potential for even more widespread economic chaos, the dictatorship ruling mainland China — the top foreign holder of U.S. Treasury bonds — is selling U.S. debt to prop up the Chinese yuan (renminbi), according to news reports. The move, which has long been anticipated by analysts, could have major implications for the American economy and especially the U.S. dollar — particularly if the pace of liquidation were to accelerate. As of now, confusion about the developments is running rampant. Analysts have been warning of the sales since at least early last week. However,...

    In the years since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd and ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets; and as the situation in markets becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase. This might seem counterintuitive. You would think that the more obvious the economic collapse becomes, the more alternative analysts will be vindicated and the more awake and aware the average person will be. Not necessarily. In fact, the mainstream spin machine is going into high speed as more negative data is exposed and absorbed into the markets. If you know history, then you...

  • N.J.'s tough new car seat law begins Sept. 1

    09/01/2015 2:23:14 AM PDT · by SMGFan · 31 replies
    TRENTON — New Jersey's new car seat law goes into effect this week with some of the most restrictive rules in the nation on how kids should be buckled into vehicles. The law, which begins Sept. 1, includes new regulations that require toddlers under age 2 and 30 lbs. to remain in rear-facing car seats. Older kids must remain in a booster seat until they are either age 8 or 57 inches tall. That could mean big changes for many New Jersey families. The state's previous law only said children under age 8 needed to be in a car seat...

    Hillary Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal had nothing but bad things to say about incoming House Speaker John Boehner on the day Republicans won back the House from Democrats in 2010, according to new emails released by the State Department late Monday. "Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "They are repelled by his personal behavior." "He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle," he added. According to dictionary.com, "louche" means "dubious, shady, disreputable." "He is not Gingrich, the natural leader of a 'revolution,' riding the...

    Donald Trump may show up to his campaign events in his own 757 aircraft emblazoned with a personal logo. But Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker may trump Mr. Trump for the flashiest ride over Labor Day. Mr. Walker plans a bodacious motorcycle ride through New Hampshire which covers considerable territory. “Mark the date on your calendar! Governor Scott Walker will be riding a Harley-Davidson through all 10 counties,” his campaign advises. .......Mr. Walker has released a new video message with a close focus on the Iran nuclear accord. “I refuse to live with a deal that threatens our safety and that...

    Thousands of Hillary Clinton's private emails released by the State Department Monday evening illustrate the deep ties Clinton maintained to her family's foundation while serving as secretary of state. Clinton seemingly kept close tabs on the Clinton Foundation's activities — a situation the Obama administration had hoped to avoid when bringing Clinton into the State Department in 2009. Much of her involvement with the foundation focused on its work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake there. The Clinton Foundation was heavily involved in projects across Haiti after the disaster, many of which have subsequently been criticized. Clinton referred to the...
