  • GOP rivals demand release of Trump’s off-the-record NY Times audio on immigration

    BizPac Review ^ | 03/01/16 | Michael Dorstewitz
    A New York Times columnist offered her analysis of Donald Trump after a recent interview he did with the left-leaning paper. Her opinion prompted his rivals to demand the release of off-the-record audio that allegedly calls into question the businessman’s public views on immigration. All just in time for Super Tuesday. What a coincidence. In the interest of the voting public’s right to know, Republican presidential rivals are calling upon the front-runner to instruct the Times to release either the tape or a transcript of the interview. The meeting with the Times’ editorial staff took place on January 5, along with other candidates, to pitch...

    In the frantic effort to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo the Obama administration keeps freeing the world's most dangerous terrorists, this month a Taliban soldier who served as Osama bin Laden's bodyguard. The Yemeni, Majid Mahmud Abdu Ahmed, will be released to an Arabic-speaking country with "appropriate security assurances" and "reintegration support," according to the Periodic Review Board (PRB) created by the president to clear out the compound at the U.S. military base in southeast Cuba. "The Periodic Review Board, by consensus, determined that continued law of war detention of the detainee is no longer necessary to protect...

    The Obama administration has released one of al Qaeda’s most skilled explosives experts, a man personally praised by Osama bin Laden and who created the shoe-bomb design that was used unsuccessfully to bring down an airliner in 2001. The Pentagon said on Thursday that Egyptian Tariq Mahmoud Ahmed Al Sawah, who may have known of the September 11, 2001 plot, was transferred to the government of Bosnia. Al Sawah fought with the Bosnia army in the early 1990s and eventually made his way to Afghanistan in 2000. Like other members of al Qaeda, al-Sawah began his terrorism career as a...

    TEHRAN - Iran announced Saturday that it had released four Iranian-Americans as part of a prisoner exchange with the United States. The announcement from the judiciary on state television did not identify the four, but Iranian news media said they included Jason Rezaian, The Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent; Amir Hekmati, a Marine veteran; and Saeed Abedini, a pastor. There were discrepancies in the Iranian reports about the identity of the fourth prisoner. It was not immediately clear whom the Americans released, but Iranian reports said seven Iranians were freed. The exchange was apparently orchestrated to coincide with the expected announcement...

    The Defense Department announced Thursday that 10 Yemeni detainees have been set free from Guantánamo Bay detention camp in Cuba. All of them were sent to the Gulf state of Oman, the Pentagon said. Less than 100 detainees now remain at the military facility. “The Oman transfer of 10 is the single largest transfer to a single country at one time under the current administration,” A Pentagon spokesman told the media. Since the beginning of 2016, 14 detainees have been released from the detention facility. Previously released detainees include Al Qaeda terrorists and a man who pledged to kill Americans...

    In President Obama's quest to shut down Guantanamo Bay, his administration is continuing apace in releasing detainees. We're only 13 days into the new year and four have already been released, including 40-year-old Muhammad al Rahman al-Shumrani. Al-Shumrani's transfer back to his home country of Saudi Arabia is particularly troublesome because he's already made it clear that killing Americans will be a top priority upon his release. According to his leaked confidential file, he reportedly told guards on October 14, 2007, the following: On 14 October 2007, detainee stated, "When I get out of here, I will go to...

    The U.S. military is preparing a bulk transfer of 10 detainees on Thursday from its detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, two defense officials told Fox News. The transfer, amounting to about 10 percent of the remaining prisoners, marks the largest group of detainees to be shipped out of the camp since Defense Secretary Ash Carter informed Congress in December his department would transfer a wave of detainees at the beginning of 2016. The accelerated transfers reflect a renewed effort by the president - who is likely to highlight the issue in the State of the Union address Tuesday night...

    State Department officials released roughly 2,900 pages of Hillary Clinton's private emails early Friday morning, several hours past their target of late Thursday evening. State first set a broad target of somewhere between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Thursday. But as the night wore on, that shifted to a 2 a.m. estimate. They were finally released right around 1 a.m. The late release was on top of State's failure to release all the emails by New Year's Eve. Instead of releasing everything on Dec. 31, State said it needed another few days to finish the group of Clinton messages. The...

    State Department officials are set to release 2,900 pages of Hillary Clinton's private emails Thursday after falling short of a court order requiring them to publish those documents by New Year's Eve. While the agency should have posted more than 8,000 pages of emails online at the end of last month, State officials blamed the holiday schedule for releasing just 5,500 pages on time. They vowed to catch up by publishing the remainder during the first week of January. Citing the heavy burden imposed by screening so many documents for sensitive information in such a short period of time, the...

The three Islamic Jihad linked terrorists from Wadi Ara, members of the Agrebya clan, infiltrated a training base in the southern Carmel Mountains and used pitchforks to murder three IDF trainees as they slept, in a horrific attack that was termed the Night of Pitchforks. All three became heroes among the Palestinian Arab public, with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas demanding their release in the last round of peace talks that lasted from 2013...

    On Monday, President Obama is announcing a new order to reduce potential discrimination against former convicts in the hiring process for federal government employees. It is a step towards what many criminal justice reformers call "ban the box" - the effort to eliminate requirements that job applicants check a box on their applications if they have a criminal record. While the rule was once seen as a common sense way for employers to screen for criminal backgrounds, it has been increasingly criticized as a hurdle that fosters employment discrimination against former inmates, regardless of the severity of their offense or...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House will not allow the release of emails exchanged between President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton from when she was secretary of state, a senior administration official said on Friday. The emails may be withheld until after Obama leaves office under the Presidential Records Act, according to the White House, which governs public access to the president's records. The number of emails involved has not been made public. The White House said Obama and Clinton, who is now running as a Democrat to succeed him in office in 2017, exchanged emails "on occasion."

    The Obama administration is preparing to release Jonathan Pollard, who was convicted in 1987 of spying for Israel, in hopes of alleviating tensions over the Iranian nuclear deal, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. According to US officials cited in the report, some are pushing for Pollard’s release in a matter of weeks, while others say it could take months. Still other US officials mentioned in the report denied any link between the Iranian nuclear deal and Pollard’s potential release. ABC News’ managing editor tweeted Friday night that US officials had confirmed to ABC that the former Navy analyst was...

    The US Department of Justice will allow for the release of Jonathan Pollard, accused of spying for Israel, after fulfilling his 30-year sentence, according to a report in "Algemeiner." The report cited a source close to the possible decision on Pollard's release, while a similar report also appeared in the Haredi site from New Jersey, "Lakewood Scope," citing a source in the US Senate. Speculation suggests that the Department of Justice's neutral stance on Pollard's release may be part of American concessions to Israel intended to soothe tensions after the US and other world powers signed a nuclear deal with...

    A federal judge has ordered the federal government to grant U.S. civil rights to illegals who are caught at the border, and to release all migrants except for those who may endanger Americans. The migrants “may have legitimate claims to asylum … [and] their presence here may become permanent … [so] that they are entitled to the protection of the Due Process Clause, especially when it comes to deprivations of liberty,” said the judge, who was nominated by President Barack Obama. Under current rules, border-crossers who are released are also allowed to compete against Americans for jobs, and to attend...

Ernest Istook, a former U.S. Congressman and writer for the Washington Times, pointed out on his radio program that “Obama claims minorities usually get longer terms than whites, so he wants to shorten their time served. He says letting them out of prison early will save taxpayers money.” Most of the prisoners were convicted for crack cocaine violations, almost always for dealing or possession with intent to sell.

    The Israeli cabinet took a courageous and politically unpopular step by approving the release of 104 Palestinian prisoners, including many terrorists who had murdered Israeli babies, women, the elderly and other civilians. According to Israeli intelligence some of these released murderers are likely to rejoin terrorist organizations and may kill again. Relatives and friends of the victims have protested the decision to release these killers. Yet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet withstood these pressures and ordered their release. The United States government had pressured the Israeli government to release these prisoners because the Palestinian Authority had made...

    "Prime ministers are occasionally required to make decisions that are contrary to public opinion, when the matter is one of importance to the state. "There is no need for prime ministers, in order to make decisions that enjoy the support of public opinion. "At this time, I believe it is very important for the state of Israel to enter a diplomatic process. This is important for fully exhausting the chances for ending the conflict with the Palestinians, and also for solidifying Israel's status in the complex international reality that surrounds us. "The huge changes in our region – in Egypt,...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu intends to free 82 terrorist prisoners in the course of negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, according to Channel 10. Most if not all of the terrorists were convicted of murder. The prisoners are reportedly to be released in four waves, once every two or four months, as the negotiations advance. According to the report, Netanyahu may prefer not to bring the release of terrorists to the full Cabinet for approval, but rather to the smaller “Security and Diplomacy Cabinet.” However, Bayit Yehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett, who is a member of the smaller forum as well, may...

    Justice Minister Tzipi Livni is considering the release of terrorist murderers and has received, for this purpose, the files of 120 Arab terror prisoners currently held in Israel. There is international pressure on Israel to carry out “gestures” toward the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a prelude to “peace talks” with it. The Almagor terror victims' organization has asked Livni to meet with its representatives before she decides on recommending the release of any terrorists. Almagor head Meir Indor voiced concern that a release is becoming more likely, following an interview in which President Shimon Peres said that he favors a...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif.—California may speed up the release of some inmates while allowing other inmates with a violent history to become firefighters, under a proposal to cut crowding in state prisons filed by Gov. Jerry Brown late Thursday night. Brown filed the plan "under protest," said Corrections Secretary Jeffrey Beard. Brown warned that the options he presented to the court would undermine public safety, and Beard reiterated that the state plans to appeal in an attempt to avoid going through with the measures. The governor's plan calls for increasing early release credits for inmates and paroling elderly and incapacitated prisoners, while...

    'We’re going to continue to do that…  for the foreseeable future' Most of you know the story by now: Obama first tried to blame a pending (fictional) sequester apocalypse on the Republicans -even though the sequester mechanism/legislation was entirely the President's own invention, and he signed it. Those who dared point-out the actual truth were threatened, attacked, mocked, and denigrated. So Dear Leader tells us the automatic budget cuts are now bad, and he insists on replacing half the cuts with revenue in the form of NEW TAXES. The GOP astoundingly grew a pair -at least temporarily- and told him to go pound sand. ...

    WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised to release more illegal immigrants into the United States, saying the budget sequester has left her no choice. Several hundred detainees have already released because of the sequester, she insisted. They were released on bail, or because their legal status had changed, she said. “We’re going to continue to do that … for the foreseeable future,” Napolitano said at a March 4 breakfast meeting hosted by Politico. “We are going to manage our way through this by identifying the lowest risk detainees, and putting them into some kind of alternative to release.”

    The release of hundreds of illegal immigrants into a federal monitoring system this week may be an ongoing headache for the Obama administration, as Republicans focus their scrutiny on uncovering potential missteps. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, “will be aggressively examining the ramification of this decision,” according to a committee aide. And Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.), the top Republican on the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on homeland security, pressed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to take more responsibility for the releases, which she says she did not know about beforehand. “I am concerned that you...

    Never one to let a crisis go to waste, President Obama is using impending budget cuts to justify releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers throughout the country. Groups of illegal aliens have been freed this week from facilities in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to a mainstream newspaper story that quotes advocates reporting “waves” being released. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed the secret liberation program, but wouldn’t say how many illegal immigrants were let go or what facilities they came from. One appreciative illegal immigrant, Manuel Perez, actually issued a statement after getting released from a...
