  • Clinton to Obama in 2013: Close Gitmo

    Hot Air.com ^ | November 30, 2015 | ED MORRISEY
    Give Hillary this much credit — in this case, she acted more like a leader than Barack Obama. That’s not a high bar to clear, especially in Obama’s second term. At the beginning of that second term, Hillary urged Obama to get serious about his oft-stated and unpopular goal of closing down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, stressing that “we need a White House lead” on the issue. The Huffington Post’s Ryan J. Reilly got the memo in a FOIA request: Weeks before she stepped down as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton wrote a memo urging President Barack Obama...

    Russia has received additional intelligence confirming that oil from deposits controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) goes through Turkey on an industrial scale, President Vladimir Putin said speaking on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris. Moscow has grounds to suspect that the Su-24 was downed by Turkish jets on November 24 to secure illegal oil deliveries from Syria to Turkey, he said. “At the moment we have received additional information confirming that that oil from the deposits controlled by Islamic State militants enters Turkish territory on industrial scale,” he said. “We have every reason to believe...

    No election season is complete without a good scandal, and even those close to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio know that. According to an excerpt from McKay Coppins' forthcoming book The Wilderness, unsubstantiated rumors about Rubio have been swirling around him practically since he entered politics: Jilted mistresses, sordid affairs, secret love children - Rubio's team had heard it all [...] One [rumor] that reporters in Florida had repeatedly tried to run down over the years dealt with a Tallahassee politico who Rubio had supposedly taken on several romantic out-of-state trips and paid for them with the state party's credit card.

    November 30, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - The picture emerging of the man who allegedly opened fire at a Planned Parenthood facility Friday is one of a deeply troubled recluse with a history of run-ins with the law and bizarre behavior that left some of those who encountered him fearful for their safety, and many convinced that he wasn't sane. On Saturday morning Colorado Springs police identified Robert Lewis Dear, 57, of North Carolina, as the suspect in the shooting that left three dead, and another nine injured. Dear allegedly began shooting outside the Planned Parenthood facility just before noon, Mountain Time,...

    Despite the huge number of candidates, the 2016 race is now starting to have some similarities to the 2008 Republican contest with some 1996 thrown in for good measure. For all the talk about how this cycle is going to eventually come down to Cruz competing against Florida senator Marco Rubio, this contest is really a three-man race, just as 2008 was. ... Then as now, the party was divided over a candidate with a fair amount of support who was also widely disliked within the party. The difference this time, however, is that the divisive candidate is one favored...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 18, 2015 | Morgan Chalfant
    The Department of Veterans Affairs network of health systems faces "crises in leadership and culture" in addition to other systematic problems, according to an independent assessment released Friday. The flaws rampant in VA hospitals demand a "system-wide reworking" of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). The independent review was mandated by the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act signed into law by President Obama in 2014 following revelations about secret waitlists at VA hospitals that led to dozens of veteran deaths. The report sheds light on the "systemic, critical problems" currently facing the VA's integrated health care system. "The assessments...provided evidence...

Cruz refused to take off the table his own support of a potential path to legal status despite his cries against "amnesty." "Let's demonstrate we can stop illegal immigration, we can protect our national security interests, we can protect our law enforcement interests," Cruz said after a campaign stop in Newton, Iowa.

    State Department officials are set to release roughly 7,800 pages of Hillary Clinton's private emails Monday amid new speculation about the former secretary of state's official meeting schedule. The email production Monday afternoon will kick off a countdown to the final two Clinton email releases, which will take place at the end of December and January respectively. Hundreds of the official emails Clinton hosted on a private server in her home have been published in batches since May of this year. The State Department released more than 7,000 pages of emails last month, surpassing its goal of having 51 percent...

    None of us knows how this election is going to play out, but the one thing that we can say is that this has been the most entertaining presidential primary season ever. By far the most amusing part has been the utter state of panic the GOP establishment has been in since the voters took a look at their “electability” candidate, Jeb Bush, and started laughing. Since then one nightmare has followed another.

Labour accused him of using soldiers to plug gaps when the Tories slash police budgets in the Spending Review.

    The Radiance Foundation condemns the horrific violence that happened this past weekend, and nearly every day, inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood. The daily destruction of human life for profit is inexcusable. Our hearts go out to mothers deceived into thinking violence is the answer to life that is unplanned. We also condemn the acts of an apparently deluded individual who terrorized and killed officers and civilians outside of the abortion mill. Our hearts go out to the families whose loved ones were ripped away by someone who thought violence was the answer to his confused life. Robert Dear is a...

    Well, that didn't take long. Within hours of the Colorado shootings, abortion-choice advocates were placing blame squarely on the shoulders of pro-lifers. Apparently, we're guilty of "violent" rhetoric--that is, claiming that abortion intentionally kills an innocent human being--and that rhetoric is fueling acts of terror against abortion providers. "Do we really think that there are no consequences to claiming that abortion is murder," writes Jessica Valentiin The Guardian. "Can we stop pretending that pro-life lies don't have an effect…We know why this [attack] happened. Clinic workers who put their lives on the line every day know why this happened. Because...

    At George Washington University, feminists, documentarians and activists alike gathered and voiced their criticisms about the feminist movement at large and their resistance to acknowledge abuse of women in Muslim, Hindu and Sikh communities. In a panel discussion entitled, “Censorship and Free Speech,” a human rights lawyer-turned-documentarian and two activist directors and producers discussed their personal experiences with censorship from the Left and from Hollywood. Paula Kewskin, an attorney in international humanitarian and human rights law, also wrote and produced the documentary “Honor Diaries.” According to its website, the documentary “gives a platform to exclusively female voices and seeks to...

    The Paris attacks have raised fears of terrorists slipping into Europe by posing as refugees. But in Germany, the top migrant destination, security officials have another worry: Local extremists will recruit the newcomers to join the Islamist cause once they arrive. German authorities warn that migrants seeking out Arabic-language mosques in search of the familiar are increasingly ending up at those attended by Islamist radicals. In interviews, security officials from Berlin to the southwest German state of Saarland said they have registered a sharp rise in the number of asylum-seekers attending mosques they believed attracted extremists. Federal officials said they...

    The U.S. health care system is unsustainable but it could be dramatically improved with more efficient care of our sickest patients. Medical spending is rising at twice the rate of income growth. Medical prices are rising at three times the rate of consumer inflation. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was sold to the American people as a means to fix those problems and make health care affordable. The vehicle to achieve this is, implausibly, a requirement that we all purchase overpriced health insurance. In addition to stipulating the benefit package Americans are allowed to have, ACA regulations also force insurers...

    Turkish warplanes abruptly ceased violating Greek airspace after downing a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 bomber on November 24. Previously, air intrusions made by Turkish fighter jets took place on a daily basis and amounted to thousands a year. The data comes from a diplomatic source in Athens, cited by RIA Novosti. The last time Turkish warplanes were spotted in Greek airspace was on November 25, when six jets, two of them carrying weapons, entered the neighbor's aerial domain.Intrusions of Turkish jets into Greek national airspace remain a constant headache for Athens. Turkey and Greece, while partners in NATO, have been adversaries...

    If there's a silver lining to last Tuesdays downing of a Russian Su-24 warplane by two Turkish F-16s it's that the world is now starting to scrutinize President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Even to the uninitiated it seemed strange that a NATO member would shoot down a Russian fighter jet over an alleged 17 second violation of Turkish airspace. Why, one wonders, would the democratically elected leader of one of the world's foremost up and coming emerging markets decide, out of the blue, to become the first member of the alliance to engage a Russian or Soviet aircraft in more than...

    Nuclear Charade: The Obama administration admits to Congress that its nuclear pact with Iran has not been signed by the Iranian regime and has no legal force. Obama's "tough diplomacy" is puff diplomacy. The White House's latest updated "Strategy for American Innovation" left one innovation out: diplomatic pacts with other countries that don't have to be signed. Maybe President Obama will say that it saves the taxpayers money, since it eliminates signing ceremonies in lavish locales. Going back to when, as a candidate, he expressed a willingness to talk directly with Iran, then through months of negotiations on its nuclear...

    No one would argue that Friday's shooting near the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood is anything other than a tragedy. Another mass shooting has resulted in the loss of innocent lives. The suspect, Richard Lewis Dear, killed three people and injured 11 others after a standoff with police. An additional tragedy, however, is the liberal media's notion that the pro-life movement is to blame for the carnage. According to The Guardian's Jessica Valenti, this incident demands that "the violent radical language and lies about abortion stop."Believing she now has a justification for her pro-abortion agenda, she launched into a lecture about pro-lifers' role in...

    President Barack Obama was met with what appeared to be the U.N.'s version of the Oscars' "wrap-it-up" music Monday after he significantly overran his allotted time to speak at a global climate change summit. Obama was one of 147 world leaders given a three-minute slot at the COP21 conference to outline their vision for the future of the planet. The president of the free world, however, had other ideas. More than eight and a half minutes into Obama's address — and with no sign he was stopping soon — three beeps sounded across the auditorium, clearly audible to everyone present...

    Pope Francis has told worshippers in a mosque in the Central African Republic that "Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters". He was speaking to Muslims who had sought shelter in the capital Bangui after nearly three years of violence between Christians and Muslims. The mosque visit was seen as perhaps the most difficult part of his Africa tour, a BBC correspondent says. Pope Francis then held the final Mass of his Africa trip in Bangui. He was speaking in Latin, which was then translated into the local Sango language. His message of reconciliation appeared to have an immediate impact,...

    HONG KONG — The International Monetary Fund on Monday approved the Chinese renminbi as one of the world’s main central bank reserve currencies, a major acknowledgement of the country’s rising financial and economic heft. The I.M.F. decision will help pave the way for broader use of the renminbi in trade and finance, securing China’s standing as a global economic power. But it also introduces new uncertainty into China’s economy and financial system, as the country was forced to relax many currency controls to meet the I.M.F. requirements. The changes could inject volatility into the Chinese economy, since large flows of...

    Slower warming than predicted gives the world time to develop better energy technologies The climate change debate has been polarized into a simple dichotomy. Either global warming is "real, man-made and dangerous," as Pres. Barack Obama thinks, or it's a "hoax," as Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thinks. But there is a third possibility: that it is real, man-made and not dangerous, at least not for a long time. This "lukewarm" option has been boosted by recent climate research, and if it is right, current policies may do more harm than good. For example, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the...

"Accreditation" and "urgency" are words that may have never before appeared in the same sentence.

"At least I was once winning," Cain wrote on his website. "Jeb Bush has been doing nothing but losing throughout this entire campaign. His problem is him." Last week, Bush reportedly pointed to Cain, a pizza magnate who led the GOP presidential field in October and November of 2011, as evidence that outsiders such as Donald Trump and Ben Carson will falter before the first...

    California's aggressive push to increase renewable energy production comes with a catch for people with solar panels on the roof: You don't count. If a home or business has a rooftop solar system, most of the wattage isn't included in the ambitious requirement to generate half of the state's electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind by 2030, part of legislation signed in October by Gov. Jerry Brown. That means rooftop solar owners are missing out on a potentially lucrative subsidy that is paid to utilities and developers of big power projects. It also means that utility ratepayers...

It is unknown how many of the missing are still in the country or may have left for elsewhere in Europe.

    Billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump ridiculed President Obama for his emphasis on climate change, calling his remarks on the subject "one of the dumbest statements I've ever heard in the history of politics as I know it." Trump referred specifically to Obama's remark that there is no greater threat to future generation than climate change. "When we have large groups of people that want to blow up every one of our cities, that want destroy our country, that kill our people, and he's worried about global warming. I think it's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen," Trump said...

    I often come away from the conservative/Christian conferences I’ve attended around the country with the feeling that we’re trying to drive the car by hitting the gas and the brakes at the exact same time. Although I have met many wonderful people at those events, and received no shortage of inspiration from the speeches I have heard, there is also a shadow that looms over everything. This shadow taunts us with visions of an army, whose soldiers run away or whose weapons jam right at the very moment in the fight when resolve and execution matter most. And those shadows...

    India's oil demand is poised to reach 10 million barrels of oil per day (MMbopd) by 2040 -- up from 3.8 MMbopd last year -- as domestic energy consumption looked set for strong growth over the next 25 years, boosted by rising incomes and population as well as increased urbanization and industrialization, the International Energy Agency (IEA) commented Friday on its launch of the "India Energy Outlook 2015" report. "India is set to contribute more than any other country to the rise in global energy demand over the next 25 years, underlining its ever-greater influence in Asia and on the...

    In Australia, one is able to purchase a personalized label for a jar of Nutella, the popular chocolate and hazelnut spread. Unless, apparently, someone is trying to purchase a label for a person named Isis. A woman in Australia found this out the hard way, when she was told that she would not be allowed to purchase a personalized jar for her five-year-old niece, Isis Taylor. Her niece was named after the Egyptian goddess, and was born years before the creation of the Islamic State. Despite pleas to Ferrero Australia to please reconsider and print the label, the company stood...

    The Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM) has long been a mainstay of the U.S. strike weapon inventory. Launching from ranges out to 1,000 miles and armed with a 1,000-pound warhead, it is the Navy’s “Kick Down the Door” weapon, attacking well-defended high-value land targets. The BLK IV missile is the latest variant in a steady progression of capability, incorporating mission planning, navigation and guidance, and command and control upgrades designed to improve responsiveness and target flexibility. Combat-proven and operationally reliable, Tomahawk remains a weapon of choice for planners and commanders alike. The FY 2016 budget maintains production and inventory levels,...

    A graduate teaching assistant at the University of Missouri (MU) has been arrested and could be charged with child abuse after he allegedly assaulted a 14-year-old relative after seeing her in school without a headscarf. Youssif Omar was reportedly at Hickman High School in Columbia, Mo., last Tuesday when he spotted the girl, and noticed that she wasn't wearing a hijab, a traditional headscarf worn by many Muslim women and that many believers regard as a religious obligation. According to a Columbia police representative who spoke with the Columbia Daily Tribune, Omar reacted violently when he saw the relative without...

    "It's a great day to be a Republican in California!" I thought to myself when my colleagues elected me to be the next Beach Cities Republicans Club President, a growing grassroots organization in an otherwise deep blue state, which has witnessed and assisted remarkable Republican gains. I was following a long-list of who's who in the South Bay. The prior president, David Hadley, won the state assembly seat for my district, the first Republican in over two decades. Another fiscal conservative Republican won a seat in the East Bay, the first in over thirty years. Los Angeles County will enjoy...
