  • GOP lawmaker: Secret Service agents may have been ‘scapegoats’ [White House "cover-up?"]

    Secret Service agents may have been used as “scapegoats” by the White House to “cover up what is potentially a broader problem” relating to the 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, according to Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah). In a letter to White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Chaffetz questioned whether a White House staffer involved in the scandal in the Colombian city of Cartegena had been disciplined. “Recently I have received information from credible sources that records also identified a White House staff person as checking in a female foreign national (FFN) as an overnight guest during the same trip...

    Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

    The only bright spot in the train wreck the United States and their Gulf States allies have created in Iraq, is a brave people, whose accomplishments in kicking ISIS ass, are impressive to say the least. But, not surprisingly, our government doesn't have a hand in this success story. The Kurdish people in Iraq, have taken the fight to the Islamic State with meager resources and have prevailed. All the Obama administration has done until just recently, was to lean on other countries to not purchase Kurdish oil, thus depriving the Kurds of much needed economic resources with which to...

Elibiary, a stalwart supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood , said he was leaving so he can focus on “reforming” the conservative movement ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

    Islamic activists that strong-armed the FBI to purge anti-terrorism training material considered “offensive” to Muslims have made their next wave of demands, which include an overhaul in the way all law enforcement officers are trained in the United States. The coalition of influential and politically-connected Muslim rights groups is demanding that the Obama administration implement a mandatory retraining program for all federal, state and local law enforcement officials who may have been subjected to materials they deem “biased and discriminatory” against Muslims. There must also be an audit of all federal law enforcement and intelligence gathering training and educational materials...

    John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis — left, right and center — of his recent cease-fire diplomacy. But that’s only half the story. More significant is the consternation of America’s Arab partners, starting with the president of the Palestinian Authority. Mahmoud Abbas was stunned that Kerry would fly off to Paris to negotiate with Hamas allies Qatar and Turkey in talks that excluded the PA and Egypt. The talks also undermined Egypt’s cease-fire proposal, which Israel had accepted and Hamas rejected (and would have prevented the vast majority of the casualties on both sides). “Kerry tried through...

    When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released in a swap for five Taliban prisoners three weeks ago and celebrated by the White House as a hero, his fellow Army platoon leaders came forward with details about how he was "captured" as a prisoner. Bergdahl was accused of being a deserter who violated his oath and left on his own accord by the men who served with him. At the time of their statements, State Department Deputy Press Secretary Marie Harf was asked during a press conference about the knowledge the platoon members had surrounding Bergdahl's alleged desertion. She dismissed their statements...

That’s a normal process in getting your prisoners back.” Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special forces by the Taliban Saturday, with the government of Qatar serving as a go-between.

    The first thing to remember is that, with the Obama administration, there are no coincidences. The attorney general of the United States is engaged in a shocking extrajudicial publicity campaign. Eric Holder is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion because he knows he wouldn't have a prayer of convicting him in a court of law. Worse, in doing so, Holder is quite deliberately stoking resentment and tension - under the guise of leading a "national conversation" about race. At precisely the same time, the United States secretary of health and human services has loathsomely injected race into...

The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers. The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland...

They claim that justice requires nothing short of opening all positions to females, regardless of the consequences to combat effectiveness, unit cohesion, or military readiness, factors whose importance they minimize in any event. What is perhaps most striking about Secretary Panetta's action is that it reverses the combat exclusion policy that...

On October 18, five weeks after terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans, President Obama told television host Jon Stewart that his administration had moved quickly to share all of the intelligence with the public. “Everything we get, every piece of information we get—as...

    Well now that the debates are over, my children can rest easy knowing that mommy and daddy are done yelling at our T.V. for 3 hours a stretch during each debate like we are complete maniacs! Oh, and I can put my blood pressure medication away, at least until election day! So the president has been so desperate lately, that he needed to keep Big Bird, and birth control at the forefront of his campaign. So much so that his campaign had been asked by PBS to stop running their ad featuring Big Bird.  The Obama campaign then went on...

    Nationwide states are taking a different road for No Child Left Behind, with 34 states now having applied for or been granted NCLB waivers by the Obama Administration. In particular, Florida has come under fire for its publicized race-based education goals. As the New York Times notes, only eight of 34 states may have avoided this waiver provision. According to Lizette Alvarez, reporting for the Times, “Florida is one of several states required to cut its achievement gap in half for all students by 2018, including those who are black, Hispanic, white, Asian, low-income, disabled or speak English as a...

    CBS News and "60 Minutes" reporter Lara Logan lambasted the Obama administration for pushing the "major lie" that the Taliban has been weakened in Afghanistan by the U.S. military. Logan gave a blistering speech in Chicago this past week that ripped the administration for the way it has handled the war in Afghanistan and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. "I chose this subject because, one, I can't stand that there is a major lie being propagated," Logan said about the administration touting the weakening of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Speaking about Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to...

    "How can this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?" asked Hillary Clinton. The shocking attack on the US consulate in Benghazi late on Tuesday that left four Americans dead abruptly revealed the fragility of America’s position in the post “Arab Spring” Middle East. The statement made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after the blast revealed the state of shock and disbelief that Obama’s administration is in. Obama’s reluctance to intervene in Libya, misleadingly interpreted by some as “leading from behind,” was abandoned hastily in a telling sign of the...

    If you weren't already uncontrollably furious over the debacle in Libya that led to the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other embassy personnel, this is likely to send you over the edge.  From Breitbart News: In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department:"The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards...

    *Caution!  Graphic picture belowSo I woke up the morning of 9/12/2012, to the sad news that one of our ambassadors to the Middle East, Christopher Stevens and his staff had been killed, and our embassy in Cairo had been breached. My first thought was, "What is the administration going to do about this?" My second thought was, "This should be an act of war (in Libya)!" I was sadly disappointed with their tepid response. Secretary of State Clinton had somewhat of an emotional response, but the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, had the most weak-kneed, please...

    Today, speaking about the despicable and stomach-wrenching attacks by Islamists on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and our embassy in Cairo, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked: “How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?” That single line is the most damning indictment of Hillary Clinton’s State Department that could ever be penned. It demonstrates her complete lack of knowledge about the region, her failure to anticipate security threats, and worst of all, her willful ignorance about the Islamists that she and President Obama trusted to take over Libya and...

    DO YOU APPRECIATE THE LAW OF PHYSICS? From an Automotive Engineering Newsletter A very big thanks to Michigan member M.P. who sent in this bit of humor, which was forwarded from a senior-level person at Chrysler. The date on this note was Sunday, July 19, 2009: Monday morning, I attended a breakfast meeting where the speaker/guest was D.C., Chairman of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR and Professor at U. of M.). you all have likely heard CAR quoted, or referred to in the auto industry news lately. Mr. C., who is an engineer by training, told many stories of...

    While all eyes were on the Republican National Convention in Tampa and Hurricane Isaac on the Gulf Coast, the White House was quietly jacking up the price of automobiles and putting future drivers at risk. Yes, the same cast of fable-tellers who falsely accused GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney of murdering a steelworker's cancer-stricken wife is now directly imposing a draconian environmental regulation that will cost untold American lives. On Tuesday, the administration announced that it had finalized "historic" new fuel efficiency standards. (Everything's "historic" with these narcissists, isn't it?) President Obama took a break from his historic fundraising drives...

    On Tuesday, Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) announced that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has denied his request for the Virginia State Police to join the 287(g) program which trains local and state law enforcement to identify illegal aliens in custody for possible deportation. Gov. McDonnell told reporters: "I'm incredibly disappointed with the Obama administration." In August 2010, McDonnell asked DHS to allow 28 state troopers to receive the specified training in order to identify illegal aliens charged with serious crimes such as "major drug offenses or violent offenses such as murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and kidnapping, as well as...
