That was the case with Kerry’s contentious testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.Under pressure, Kerry tends to slip and say revealing things. That was how the infamous, “for it and against it” clip was born. Kerry dismissed breakout as “just having one bomb’s worth, conceivably, of material, but without any necessary capacity to put it in anything,...

    In his 2008 book, The Failure Factory, Bill Gertz detailed the nuclear apostasy of Air Force general George Lee Butler, former chief of the U.S. Strategic Command. Incredibly, Gen. Butler subverted U.S. deterrence policy vis--vis Russia and bragged about it later. When Gen. Butler retired in 1994 he confessed to being a nuclear pacifist. Rather than seeking to uphold Americas nuclear deterrent, Gen. Butler hated the self-serving profit interests of the military-industrial complex. As he put it, the United States had been in a messianic pursuit of a demonized enemy. He was not alone in this opinion. Many politicians and...
  • More defendants could be charged in (Democrat) Leland Yee case, feds say

    04/10/2014 6:27:21 PM PDT · by Libloather · 9 replies
    Federal authorities said today that they are likely within the next three months to announce additional charges and new defendants in the criminal case that involves Sen. Leland Yee and more than two dozen others accused of various crimes including running guns, selling drugs and arranging murder-for-hire. "While investigation by the Grand Jury is necessarily secret... it makes good sense to generally notify the Court and opposing counsel that additional charges and, potentially, additional defendants are inevitable," prosecutors wrote in a court filing today. Authorities continue to investigate possible racketeering and criminal violations and hope to return additional indictments in...

    Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer told Special Report with Bret Baier Wednesday night that the window had passed on prosecuting the Obama administration Benghazi, and that the GOPs disorganzed approach to congressional hearings had let Benghazi as an issue slip away. Politically speaking the administration has won, Krauthammer said. They ran out the clock. If we had had a select committee from the beginning, really had coherent hearings unlike what weve had, which were disjointed hearings, that let all things sort of slip away we really would have been somewhere. We would have gotten to the bottom of this. But...

    Considering the Obama administrations implicit and explicit support in ousting Egyptian Hosni Mubarak, Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi (both whom were subsequently replaced by Muslim Brotherhood governments), and the administrations ongoing attempts to force Bashar Assad to cede control of Syria to al Qaeda rebels, the transgressions of Senator Yee highlight yet again a disturbing trend in the American government to provide aid and comfort to al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. (And, lest we forget Fast & Furious, Mexican drug cartels, including the infamous Sinaloa cartel.) If Senator Yee is found guilty of his crimes, he should be charged with...

    This past weeks second mass shooting at the Ft. Hood Army base may finally stir the Department of Defense into action. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is reportedly ready to ban smoking by military personnel. While some are using this tragedy to urge that military personnel be allowed to carry weapons for self defense, I am not going to be stampeded into a move that runs counter to the Presidents philosophy on guns, Hagel declared. These shootings are tragic, but the toll from smoking is far larger. Even if we were to come up with a successful counter to these...

    Shocking enough are the allegations that a long-perceived unassuming state senator tried brokering an international arms deal with military-style rifles and rocket launchers, but Leland Yee may have narrowly escaped an even more ominous label: supporter of terrorism. Yee, whose arrest after an FBI undercover sting shook the California political world last week, would likely have been charged with aiding terrorists if not for a bureaucratic label missing from the militant Filipino group that he is accused of sourcing for an international arms deal, counterterrorism experts told this newspaper. His ties to the group, whose leader has said he personally...

    Former President Jimmy Carter yesterday said he is supportive of letting a known member of a terrorist group, Hamid Aboutalebi, into the United States as Irans newest ambassador to the United Nations. Aboutalebi was a member of the Muslim student group who held 52 Americans hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran for more than a year beginning in 1979 during Carters presidency. When asked in an interview if the United States should block Aboutalebis entrance to U.N. headquarters in New York, Carter told radio station WTOP: You know, those were college students at that time, and I think that...

    The stunning arrest of veteran Democrat Leland Yee will erode, at least temporarily, Democratic dominance in the very blue Golden State.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- State Sen. Leland Yee, accused of trafficking in illegal weapons and fraud, could have been pushed into brokering an arms deal, his attorney said Monday. It was only toward the end of a three-year investigation that federal undercover agents pushed hard for Yee to set up an arms deal, said Yee's attorney, Paul DeMeester, after a morning federal court hearing to discuss which of Yee's assets will be used to guarantee his $500,000 bond. "Entrapment is always a defense you can consider, but we have to look at all the evidence," DeMeester said after the brief hearing....

'Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016," said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who's Who of Brotherhood front groups. "We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community."

Yet it was a campaign debt only a fraction of that amount that federal officials allege pulled the veteran politician into a sprawling sting operation. The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrats focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayors race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in...

But, Ms. Francis acknowledged on a visit to Washington last week, not everyone up north is thrilled with the idea. I wanted to attack the Canadian establishment and say, Wake up, there is...

As the Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes notes in a tweet, administration officials told CNN's Barbara Starr that the arrival of officers of the 76th Chernihov Storm Troops Division and their dispersal across key choke points in Ukraine, including Crimea, wasn't an "invasion" but an "uncontested arrival." Whatever this Russian version of an "overseas contingency operation" is called, it was foreseen as the inevitable consequence of electing a president...

    Democrats who oppose the Keystone XL pipeline have thousands of dollars invested in direct competitors to the company looking to build the pipeline, public records show. A recent environmental assessment by the State Department was seen as a step toward the pipelines approval, but Sen. Tim Kaine (D., Va.) remains opposed to its construction. In my view, there is now enough evidence to conclude that construction of this pipeline is not in Americas long-term interest, Kaine said in a statement on the review.

    Voters in Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstines Oklahoma district may look meek and mild, maybe even sweet, but their opinions of President Obama reveal nothing but a battleground take-no-prisoners attitude. One lady, for example, said there needs to be changes in the Senate so we can impeach the S-O-B. Said another: Hes not president as far as Im concerned. Should be executed. Hes an enemy combatant. She complained that Congress is doing nothing, and that allows this moron to make decisions. He has no authority. None.

    Clearly immigration was why we lost in 2012. It had nothing to do with a milquetoast Republican candidate who had been on both sides of so many issues that a good portion of Republican voters just stayed home. No, forget the moderate candidate. It was the Hispanic vote that killed us! Also, Ive got some unicorns in my back yard Ill be glad to sell you on the cheap.
