Obama Judge Silences Group Investigating Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts

The Associated Press put the following story on the wire Jul. 31, 2015 7:06 PM EDT

Judge blocks release of recordings by anti-abortion group

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge has blocked the release of any recordings made at meetings of abortion providers by an anti-abortion group that previously revealed secretly recorded videos of a Planned Parenthood leader. 
Judge William Orrick in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order Friday against the Center for Medical Progress hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation. 
The federation says the Center for Medical Progress infiltrated its meetings and recorded its members. The group says release of any audio or video would put providers in danger.
In his three-page order, Orrick said the federation would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order. 
The Center for Medical Progress has previously released videos showing Planned Parenthood leaders discussing the use of aborted fetuses for research
Who is Judge William Orrick ?


A strange fact to omit from a news story about a judge trampling on the free speech rights of a group one might think.  Why would a judge want to stop further releases of videos showing the unethical and illegal actions of Planned Parenthood ?

Undercover investigator David Daleiden tells CNN the reason StemExpress is trying to suppress the video he took of its CEO on May 22 is because the company doesn’t want anyone to know it bought whole intact dead babies from Planned Parenthood.


A very liberal pro-abortion Obama bundler appointed by Planned Parenthood backer Barack Obama to a federal judgeship silences group that proves Planned Parenthood sells baby parts and babies born alive might be an important part of the story too.

Data in Hillary Clinton’s ‘Secret’ Emails Came from 5 Intelligence Agencies

Hillary Clinton's denials of wrongdoing are contradicted weekly by the release of information regarding her private email server. Close confidant Sidney Blumenthal's own emails have proven that Hillary didn't turn over all her emails in regards to Benghazi, Libya and the latest Inspector Generals reports contradict her claims about the sensitive nature of the information sent and stored on her unsecured 'homebrew' email server.  Excerpt trom McClatchyDC ....

Hillary Clinton Classified Emails Contained Information From Five Intelligence Agencies

The classified emails stored on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private server contained information from five U.S. intelligence agencies and included material related to the fatal 2012 Benghazi attacks, McClatchy has learned. 
Of the five classified emails, the one known to be connected to Benghazi was among 296 emails made public in May by the State Department. Intelligence community officials have determined it was improperly released. 
Revelations about the emails have put Clinton in the crosshairs of a broadening inquiry into whether she or her aides mishandled classified information when she used a private server set up at her New York home to conduct official State Department business. 
While campaigning for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, Clinton has repeatedly denied she ever sent or received classified information. Two inspectors general have indicated that five emails they have reviewed were not marked classified at the time they were stored on her private server but that the contents were in fact “secret.” 

The email issue, however, has distracted from Clinton’s campaign for days and already has hurt her in public opinion polls. Besieged with questions, she has found herself caught in a murky dispute between State Department and intelligence officials over whether emails on her server were classified. 
“Even if Secretary Clinton or her aides didn’t run afoul of any criminal provisions, the fact that classified information was identified within the emails is exactly why use of private emails . . . is not supposed to be allowed,” said Bradley Moss, a Washington attorney who specializes in national security matters. “Both she and her team made a serious management mistake that no one should ever repeat.”
McClatchy also has determined some details of the five emails that the intelligence community’s inspector general has described as classified and improperly handled. 
Intelligence officials who reviewed the five classified emails determined that they included information from five separate intelligence agencies, said a congressional official with knowledge of the matter. 


The Benghazi email made public contained information from the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, a spy agency that maps and tracks satellite imagery, according to the official, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the matter. 
The other four classified emails contained information from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the CIA, the official said. 
The Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General did not respond to questions about the matter. The five agencies either referred questions about it to the inspector general’s office or declined to comment. 
The intelligence community inspector general only looked at a sample of 40 emails, even though a total of 30,000 emails were turned over to the State Department by Clinton.

In documents that were publicly released, Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III said State Department officials had warned that there were “potentially hundreds of classified emails” on Clinton’s private server. 
Clinton’s campaign did not respond to requests for comment. Clinton has maintained she used a personal email account as a “matter of convenience” and has denied she emailed any classified material.

Bernie Sanders: The Candidate of Rich, White Progressives

NBC's Meet the Press highlighted the demographics of the average Bernie Sanders backer and it was predictable to say the least.. Would you guess that the progressive supporters of the far left populist Bernie Sanders are well off, white liberals with a college degree.  Bernie is a democratic socialist and that mainly  appeals to a demographic called the Liberal Elite.


Here is a breakdown from the NYTMES
Barack Obama won a razor-thin victory over Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Democratic primaries seven years ago in large part because black voters supported Mr. Obama by a 5-to-1 margin. Without their support, he would have lost, and lost big — probably by more than 20 points in the national popular vote. 
As a result, many have framed Mr. Sanders’s challenge in racial terms. But his challenge in getting the support of nonwhite voters is not simply a problem of race. It’s primarily a problem with moderate and less educated Democrats, regardless of race, which disproportionately affects his support among nonwhite voters. His challenge among black voters may be no greater than his challenge among ideologically and demographically similar white voters.
Meet the Press had a more straight forward infographic in this video.



The Democrats have spent decades dividing the country by age, race, income, religion and sexual preference so how can they run a campaign in 2016 with only old, white, rich progressives as the only choice to lead the party?

Ted Cruz Doubles Down in Mitch McConnell 'Attack'

 The United States Senate was open for a rare Sunday session in which Senator Ted Cruz continued his battle against the Republican establishment and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The Friday session revealed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell lied to GOP Senators about legislation and blocked  GOP Senator's input into legislation by filling the amendment tree, among other things. The Friday session was covered in a previous blog.
Ted Cruz Accuses Mitch McConnell of Telling a 'Flat-out Lie'

First, from Politico:

Republican leaders delivered a smackdown of Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee on the Senate floor Sunday — the latest in an increasingly testy rivalry marked by accusations of deceit and grandstanding. 
The showdown was triggered by an attempt by Cruz (R-Texas) and Lee (R-Utah) to employ arcane Senate procedures to take a tougher stand on Iran and to defund Planned Parenthood. Republican leaders led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) viewed the move as an affront to Senate rules and squelched the effort in dramatic fashion — an embarrassing setback for two of the chamber’s most conservative members.

First Cruz tried unsuccessfully to force the Senate to consider an amendment to a transportation bill stating that sanctions on Iran could not be lifted until the country recognizes Israel’s right to exist and frees four American hostages. But he was unable to rally enough senators to back his effort to get a roll call vote on the matter.
Then Lee tried to push through a vote on defunding Planned Parenthood. That, too, failed to muster enough support for a vote. On Monday, Lee is expected to try to repeal Obamacare with a simple majority vote of 51 senators, effectively circumventing the 60-vote requirement to break a filibuster after Democrats defeated an attempt to repeal the health care law on Sunday.
Now the Sunday Senate action as reported at TheHill.com
Cruz doubles down in McConnell attack
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) doubled-down Sunday in his attacks on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). 
Cruz on Friday accused McConnell of lying to him about whether he had agreed to allow Democrats a vote on extending the Export-Import Bank during negotiations earlier this summer on trade legislation.

On Sunday, he repeated the charge — which McConnell and his allies have criticized. 
“On Friday I gave an unusual speech, a speech unlike any I have given in this chamber. It was not a speech I was happy to give,” said Cruz, a Republican presidential candidate. “I described an explicit promise the majority leader had made to me and to all 53 Republican senators.” 
He said that McConnell made a promise “in front of every Republican senator” while “looking me in the eyes [that] there was no deal on the Export-Import Bank.” 
“We saw on Friday that promise was false," Cruz said. "That promise was made and that promise was broken.” 
Cruz said that McConnell took steps to “force a vote to reauthorize the Export-Import bank and they were directly contrary to the promises the majority leader made to all 53 Republicans.” 
“My saying so [on Friday] may be uncomfortable but it is a simple fact,” Cruz said.
He also responded to critics. 
Ted Cruz on the Senate Floor, Sunday July 26, 2015 

“I would note that it is entirely consistent with decorum and with the nature of this body traditionally as the world's greatest deliberative body, to speak the truth,” Cruz said. “Speaking the truth about actions is entirely consistent with civility.” 
Asked if he went to far during his Friday speech, Cruz instead blasted the press for not writing about whether or not McConnell lied about a deal. 
"I would note that on the discussion of my speech on Friday, there have been no stories written about whether in fact of Mitch McConnell told the truth," he said. "None of you have written the story about whether as to whether he told the truth or lied, the substantive story."

Bernie Sanders: Just Another Progressive Fraud

Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist from Vermont that caucuses with the Democrats is the perfect example of a progressive populist politician. The far-left Bernie Sanders is running for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States against Hillary Clinton, the queen of liars. How can Bernie Sanders possibly compete against the Clinton political machine ? Tell really BIG LIES too.



Progressives will proudly believe ANY lie told to them. In fact, cognitive dissonance is their specialty.



Recycling that discredited stat is intellectually lazy and dishonest. Great Job Bernie. .   Not only was the 77 cents on the dollar myth debunked, Bernie Sanders now says the rate is 78 cents for performing the same work.  B.S.



A Bernie Sanders 'supporter' links to this to prove I am wrong.. 

Updated with payscale tweet and graphic

Populist pablum is predictable and pathetic which makes Bernie Sanders the progressive prince of  B.S.  It cannot be just a coincidence that B.S. happens to be Sanders' initials too.

How pathetic is Bernie Sanders? A few of my previous blogs have examined  this B.S. artist.

Senator Ted Cruz Accuses Sen. Mitch McConnell of Telling a 'Flat-out Lie'

'Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for filing an amendment to the highway funding bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank and preventing senators from offering additional amendments by filling the amendment tree. He calls Senator McConnell's actions "procedural abuse" and compares his tactics to those of now-Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) when he was majority leader.' (Caitlyn Hillyard) 

Excerpt from Politico
Ted Cruz Accuses Mitch McConnell of Telling a 'Flat-out Lie'
During his speech, the Texas senator also strongly rebuked the GOP Senate majority’s record this Congress
Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor Friday and charged that Mitch McConnell told a “lie,” escalating his campaign against GOP leaders and challenging the traditions of the usually decorous chamber. 
In a scathing floor speech, the Texas firebrand accused the Senate majority leader of breaking his word to him and the rest of the GOP conference over McConnell’s plans for the controversial Export-Import Bank, the country’s chief export credit agency. In Cruz’s telling, McConnell privately promised him and other Republicans that “there was no deal” with a handful of senators who were seeking to revive the bank in exchange for their votes to advance a major trade bill in May.
McConnell, he said, became “visibly angry” when Cruz challenged him on the matter during a meeting in May. 
“Like St. Peter,” Cruz said, “he repeated it three times. He said, ‘The only thing I told the proponents of the Export-Import Bank is like any other senator in this body, they could offer any amendment they liked on an any amendable vehicle, but I gave them nothing.’”
That day in late May, Cruz said his staff informed him that McConnell was “lying” to him, but he said he believed the Senate GOP leader that “he wasn’t lying to us.”
But after McConnell took procedural steps Friday to move to a proposal to revive the Ex-Im bank, Cruz said on the Senate floor: “I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie.”

What we saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over again was a simple lie,” said Cruz, a fierce opponent of the bank. “The majority and minority leader, arm-in-arm again, should not team up against the American taxpayers.”
The attack is unusual even for Cruz, who has made his battle with Senate Republicans a centerpiece of his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination. Senators tend to avoid directly calling out specific senators on the Senate floor — particularly from their own party and especially their own party leader. Senate rules say, “no senator in debate shall, directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another senator or to other senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a senator.” 
Asked to comment, McConnell smiled and walked away. Sen. John Cornyn, a fellow Texas Republican and McConnell’s chief deputy, said he was reviewing Cruz’s remarks and would not comment further.

Obama Administration Caught In Iran Nuclear Side Deal LIE

Two images just hours apart sum up the amount of deception necessary by the Obama administration to pass the  Iran 'Nuclear Deal'. Side deals, what side deals ?  Oh, those side deals ?



A deal with Iran was always desperation by this administration to have at least one foreign policy success after two terms of abject failure.


This administration isn't capable of telling the truth or negotiating a binding deal, let alone enforcing the terms of it.

The New Democratic Party: Progressive Pablum, Pandering & Populism is Pestilence

The Democratic party and the progressive movement are eager to divide the country in terms of race, religion, income, religion and by gender. Divide and conquer. The new left's lust for power has many Orwellian features as seen in their word play known as political correctness in liberal circles and newspeak to historians.

 Progressive and neo-Marxist professors steeped in the anti-American writings of Howard Zinn  or various femi-Nazi authors for instance, indoctrinate  a generation of useless idiots to parrot their narratives.  Activist front groups are the only place of possible employment, outside of academia, for these victim-studies majors. Activist groups that are happy to utilize the youthful exuberance of the useful idiots and malcontents to divide, dis-inform and ultimately devour American society. Catchy slogans like forward, hope and change will be chanted so an intellectually lazy society won't hear the sounds of the swarming, progressive locusts.

Progressives play on emotions and the push to blame 'white privilege' or institutional racism is all the rage, when in fact, real examples of institutional racism codified into law are affirmative action in employment, and ironically, academia. The progressives actually are the racists.  and will continually use it as a wedge issue for decades to come.   For the latest example of how ludicrous the argument has become about race one only has to look at the darling of academia and the NAACP, Rachel Dolezal.

an excerpt from +CNN

Rachel Dolezal on being black: 'I didn't deceive anybody'
(CNN)Weeks after making headlines amid accusations that she is a white woman passing herself off as African-American, Rachel Dolezal says she is no longer confused about who she is. 
She is a black woman, she told Vanity Fair. 
"It's not something that I can put on and take off anymore," Dolezal said. "Like I said, I've had my years of confusion and wondering who I really (was) and why and how do I live my life and make sense of it all, but I'm not confused about that any longer. I think the world might be -- but I'm not." 
olezal stepped down as head of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP in June over criticism that she's portrayed herself as black, even though her parents told a local newspaper that the 37-year-old was born white. She said then that she identified as black, and Dolezal maintains that she wasn't being deceptive.

"I just feel like I didn't mislead anybody; I didn't deceive anybody," Dolezal now says. "If people feel misled or deceived, then sorry that they feel that way, but I believe that's more due to their definition and construct of race in their own minds than it is to my integrity or honesty, because I wouldn't say I'm African-American, but I would say I'm black, and there's a difference in those terms."

The woman who touched off conversations about what constitutes race now says that the whole thing was a misunderstanding and that she is trying to work out how to proceed, having lost her job and friends over the scandal.

Fact Check: Donald Trump's John McCain 'War Hero' Comment

Donald Trump currently leads the field of over a dozen GOP candidates for POTUS.  Ignoring the effects of name recognition on polling, the left slanted media is eager to attack the new GOP front runner. Using dubious headlines and partial quotes out of context is just another tactic the MSM will use to protect the Democrats and Hillary Clinton at any cost. Now Trump is under fire for this....


Fact Check: The Washington Post on Donald Trump and John McCain
Donald Trump appears to have gotten under the skin of not only Democrats, but also fellow Republicans and the news media. Has that subjected Trump, a Republican presidential candidate, to unfair and/or inaccurate reporting? 
An article in the Washington Post today is headlined, “Trump slams McCain for being ‘captured’ in Vietnam.” 
The article’s lead sentence states, “Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump slammed Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a decorated Vietnam War veteran, on Saturday by sayingMcCain was not a war hero because he was captured by the North Vietnamese [emphasis added].” 
Is this report accurate? 
Watch the clip in context 


Article Continued: 
In fact, Trump’s actual quote is the opposite of what is presented in the Post’s first sentence.
1. The Post did not provide context at the outset disclosing that McCain and Trump have been feuding, with McCain characterizing some Trump supporters as “crazies” and Trump stating that McCain graduated last in his class in Annapolis. The charged rhetoric continued at the conservative Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa this weekend. 
2. When a panelist characterized McCain as a “war hero,” the Post is accurate in reporting that Trump initially said McCain is “not a war hero.” But then, Trump immediately modified his statement saying– four times– that McCain is a war hero:
“He is a war hero.”
“He’s a war hero because he was captured.”
“He’s a war hero, because he was captured.”
“I believe, perhaps, he’s a war hero. But right now, he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people.” 
3. Did Trump say McCain is not a war hero because he was captured? No, not in the exchanges represented in the Post. 
4. Is the Post’s characterization an accident? It would appear not, because it is repeated in the Post’s caption of the video clip, which also states: “Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a decorated Vietnam war veteran, was not a war hero because he was captured by the North Vietnamese [emphasis added].”
Further, in the Post’s second sentence, Trump is quoted as stating of McCain, “He’s not a war hero…He’s a war hero because he was captured,” but the article selectively left out the phrase Trump had uttered in between: “He is a war hero.”


Turns out Trump's comment is just another variant of a joke that has been around for at least 15 years. Take this quote from current Senator from Minnesota Al Franken .....

Biased Media Spins Hate at South Carolina Rally

The Spin from the left wing media was on full display in South Carolina today.  Of course, the leftist jokes at the Huffington Post can always be counted on for half the story and peddling progressive pablum  The coverage of the two rallies sums it up nicely Check out the headline and article......




The main picture of a racist posing with the 'black power' salute wearing a shirt with a black hand with the meddle finger was only a start.  The article's images are the only hint that the Black Educators for Justice are affiliated with the militant Black Panthers terrorist organization.  Some news organizations actually reported that fact and that is another reason the Huffington Post cannot be considered anything but an arm of the Democratic Party or the DNC.   The only other giveaway to a connection to the Black Panthers would be ONE of the photos that they published at the bottom of their 'story' 

The flag and the black power salute aren't addressed in the story, but the Klan narrative and imagery isn't hard to miss.   Even video of the Black Panthers rally was hard to find scouring the web and is posted next. 


Chants of 'black power!' by the black panthers isn't racist or hateful ?  Obviously the left wing media either doesn't think so or doesn't want you to know the whole story.

The Huffington post wasn't alone

Others tried for at least a little balance

Hillary Clinton's Email Server Answers Avoid Key Questions

Byron York of the Washington Examiner has been following the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal closely and the reporting seems detailed and fair.  The following article is no exception.

Clinton email answers don't answer key question
It was lost amid news of President Obama's Iran deal, but this week Hillary Clinton released a 3,500-word explanation of her secret email system. While it is by far the most extensive statement the Clinton campaign has made on the issue, the explanation does not touch what has become a key question, if not the key question, of the email affair: Did Clinton withhold information from Congress?  
The statement is in question-and-answer form. In it, Clinton asserts that she carefully followed every law and regulation that applied to her emails as secretary of state. She did absolutely nothing wrong, she says. 
One of the questions asked is: "Did Clinton delete any emails while facing a subpoena?" Clinton's answer is no, she did not. According to the Clinton campaign: "The emails that Clinton chose not to keep were personal emails -- they were not federal records or even work-related -- and therefore were not subject to any preservation obligation under the Federal Records Act or any request. Nor would they have been subject to the subpoena -- which did not exist at the time -- that was issued by the Benghazi Select Committee some three months later." 

The subpoena to which Clinton referred was issued March 4, 2015, after the committee learned that Clinton kept her emails on a separate, secret server. Clinton seems to be confirming that she destroyed her email records (and all backups, according to her attorney) in early December, which would be three months before the Benghazi committee subpoena. So Clinton's argument is: There's no way I was subject to a subpoena because I destroyed everything before the subpoena was issued. 
Putting aside the question of whether Clinton's emails were already covered by an earlier subpoena -- Benghazi committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy maintains they were -- there is still the question of whether Clinton, all along, had a legal obligation to preserve her emails and hand them over to Congress. And on that question, there seems no doubt Clinton was legally required to do just that -- and despite that obligation destroyed the emails anyway.
On September 20, 2012, nine days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, the House Oversight Committee's Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations sent a letter to then-Secretary of State Clinton asking for "all information…related to the attack on the consulate." The letter told Clinton, "In complying with this request, you are required to produce all responsive documents that are in your possession, custody, or control, whether held by you or your past or present agents, employees, and representatives acting on your behalf." The letter specified emails as documents covered by the request.

The letter was clear. In response, the State Department produced not a single email to or from Clinton. The world now knows, of course, that Clinton did in fact possess emails covered by the request and did not turn them over.

How does Clinton's new explainer explain that? It doesn't. The campaign's new statement simply ignores that 2012 congressional letter demanding documents.



Continued:
..... For Clinton to argue that her "personal" emails were "not subject to any preservation obligation…or any request" is a non sequitur because the congressional request, beginning in 2012, was always for Benghazi- and Libya-related documents. Clinton had them and did not turn them over.
The Clinton explainer says that on December 5, 2014, she sent the State Department "30,490 copies of work or potentially work-related emails" from her time as secretary. But the Libya-related portion of those materials didn't make it to the Benghazi committee until recently, and even now a few documents are being withheld on some sort of claim of executive privilege.
Given all that, it seems beyond dispute that Clinton withheld Benghazi-related information from Congress beginning September 20, 2012. There are laws that govern such behavior. To give two examples: 18 U.S. Code 1505 says that anyone who "obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede…the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House, or any joint committee of the Congress" could face a five-year prison term, while 18 U.S. Code 1001 states that anyone who "falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact" in the course of "any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress" could face a prison sentence of up to eight years.
 While Mr. York goes on to say that he is not recommending charges necessarily be brought against Hillary Clinton and this is more evidence that merits and justifies further investigation of the former SOS Hillary Clinton. by Trey Gowdy.  I will have to say that her actions and intent were always criminal and the charges should be filed and a trial should begin forthwith.

Comrade Commissar Clinton

Politics and Propaganda go hand in hand just like Politico and the Democratic party. And speaking of, the following  tweet from Politico caught my attention

Inside Hillary’s campaign headquarters

The poster on the wall immediately caught my attention and seemed rather 'Stalinesque' and rather fitting considering the new left lurching populist pandering coming from the Clinton Campaign.   A Closer look of the poster :



Now a trip down propaganda memory lane with a few of the other progressives from world history. 


Hillary Clinton is in good company.They all have the blood of their countrymen on their hands, embrace the far left for maximum power and control of the masses and are 'ethically challenged'. Most importantly, they know what is best for you and know you aren't bright enough to realize it.  Your resistance is futile. .


Hillary is a progressive populist of convenience. 


Hillary Clinton should be in the movies. In fact,  it is called Hillary The Movie. 


Remember, when it comes to progressives peddling populism, equality and fairness are just talking points. In fact, when examined closely, we find that  “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Bernie Sanders' Wife Accounts for ALL His Reported Assets

Far left liberal, progressive and democratic socialist are all labels that apply to Bernie Sanders.  There are reasons why Bernie Sanders ran for office and some will even say it is because he is a public servant. Most people know better than that however

First from Politico:
Bernie Sanders' wife accounts for all his reported assets
Bernie Sanders on Thursday reported less than $750,000 in assets — all of it in his wife’s name — according to his presidential personal financial disclosure form. 
The Vermont senator, mounting a liberal insurgent campaign against front-runner Hillary Clinton, also listed between $25,002-$65,000 in credit card debt on his Visa cards. 
According to the disclosure, Sanders and his wife Jane reported between $194,026-$741,030 in assets, a broad combination of investment funds.
Continued:
Sanders, by contrast, has no listed assets on his entire financial disclosure form, save for a municipal pension — all the assets provided in the form are listed in his wife’s name. He reported no trusts or stock of any kind. 
His two credit cards, issued through the Congressional and Senate credit unions, carry interest rates of 8.5 and 10.25 percent respectively.

Useless & Unemployable - Just like his supporters in Occupy
Bernie Sanders doesn't have any assets or is it a game of appearances for public or tax purposes ?   Why would he hide them under his wife's name or is he that bad with his finances? Do his high credit card balances also reflect poorly on his financial acumen ?

What would Bernie Sanders history tell us about him ? Now to an article at Frontpagemag.com :

BERNIE SANDERS LIVED OFFUNEMPLOYMENT, COULDN'T GET A NON-GOVERNMENT JOB
Bernie Sanders can only exist when being paid by taxpayers.
The Politico piece on Bernie Sanders is built around his weird personal life and who the mother of his kids is, but that's of less interest and less surprise when dealing with leftists back then. Equally unsurprising and telling, Bernie Sanders was unemployable outside politics and seems to have financed everything with dubiously obtained unemployment checks. 
We're told that "He read Marx, Lenin and Trotsky." Like them, he wasn't big on working. Marx lived off Engels. Sanders lived off Uncle Sam.

"That summer, not quite 23, he and his wife, Deborah Sanders, bought for $2,500 some property in Vermont, near Montpelier in the town of Middlesex off Shady Rill Road, according to property records." 
Where did the money come from?

"He explained the origin of the money Sanders used to buy the Middlesex land and the carpentry he did on the sugar shack. He said Sanders received unemployment, “for a few months,” in 1971, though Sanders can’t remember what the job was that qualified him for the benefits." 
But living off unemployment was the Sanders way.

“The electricity was turned off a lot,” Barnett said. “I remember him running an extension cord down to the basement. He couldn’t pay his bills.” 
He worked some as a carpenter, although “he was a shitty carpenter,” Bloch told me. “His carpentry,” Morrisseau said, “was not going to support him, and didn’t.”... 
“He was always poor,” Sandy Baird, another old friend, told me in Burlington.
“Virtually unemployed,” said Nelson, the political science professor at the University of Vermont. 
“Just one step above hand to mouth,” said Terry Bouricius, who was involved with Liberty Union, served at times as a de facto campaign manager for Sanders and at one point crashed for a couple months on his couch. 
Liberty Union “people found it difficult to support themselves while engaging in full-time political work,” Michael Parenti, one of those people, wrote in the Massachusetts Review in the summer of 1975. “Some held jobs that allowed free time for campaign activities, while others lived off unemployment insurance.” 
Sanders, according to an article in 1974 in the Bennington Banner, was one of them. He was on unemployment for a few months in 1971. In subsequent Liberty Union campaigns he advocated for “the doing away with all time limitations for unemployment benefits.”
Bernie Sanders, just another unemployable populist political hack that fooled a lot of the people, a lot of the time.  His lack of real experience and support from the extreme left makes him a contender for the Democratic nomination in 2016. Welcome to Muriburiland.




Gov. Scott Walker Cleared in Campaign Finance Witch Hunt

As usual, the headline in the left-leaning media and the article that follows never tells the full story. The Governor of Wisconsin Scott Walker has been a target of the left for years now and the recall election that failed has made the left even more bitter.  First an excerpt from TheHill.com
Walker cleared in campaign finance probe

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) did not violate campaign finance laws during recall elections against him, the Wisconsin Supreme Court decided in an opinion released Thursday. 
Wisconsin’s highest court ruled on Thursday that Walker did not illegally collaborate with conservative groups during 2011 and 2012 recall campaigns.

The ruling ends a significant legal challenge against Walker just three days after his entrance into the GOP’s 2016 presidential field. It halts any continuing investigation or legal discovery that could tarnish the Wisconsin governor’s image heading into next year. 
The justices involved with the case split 4-2. 
Justice Michael Gableman wrote in the court’s majority decision that the campaign finance law at issue in the case is “unconstitutionally overbroad and vague.” 
“To be clear, this conclusion ends the John Doe investigation because the special prosecutor’s legal theory is unsupported in either reason or law,” he said. “Consequently, the investigation is closed.”
A twitter reaction sums it up well:

The targeting of Walker, conservative groups in Wisconsin were also part of a national effort to silence speech of the Democrat's political opponents.

Don’t Let Prosecutors Terrorize Citizens Under Secret Charge
Last year’s predawn raids against Wisconsin conservatives and subsequent legal harassment from prosecutors suggest a police state.
In the predawn hours of October 3, 2013, armed deputies raided the homes of R.J. Johnson, Deborah Jordahl, and several others in a paramilitary style blitz across Wisconsin. The detainees weren’t terrorists bent on mass murder or the overthrow of the government. The agents weren’t looking for contraband narcotics or illegal firearms. In fact, no one was quite sure what they wanted, but agents got it all; computers, phones, business records, files, and communications dating back years. Deputies told the raided subjects to keep quiet or there would be consequences, as a pedophile might tell his prey.
The targets represent only a fraction of political activists sucked into Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s “John Doe”—a grand-jury-type mechanism Wisconsin prosecutors prefer for its secrecy. Chisholm accuses them of “illegal talking” by coordinating messaging, which is supposedly forbidden under Wisconsin’s prolix campaign finance code. The investigation, which Chisholm has expanded 18 times, has engulfed advocates, large and small, for years on end. His favorite tactic is bulk intimidation. Alongside raids and gag orders, he employs kitchen-sink subpoenas, many of which are eventually quashed at great legal expense. When he fails to get sufficient obeisance, he serves arrest warrants and sends people to jail on nonexistent charges. One judge reviewing a John Doe prosecutor’s actions stated, “The conduct described is nothing that we as Wisconsinites should be proud of, bottom line . . . . Mr. Landgraf was behaving badly, probably for political reasons.”
More:
Chisholm’s John Doe represents the worst kind of legal thuggery, rife with personal enmity, conflicts of interests, and professional skullduggery. Unfortunately victims are left with little practical recourse. The laws, judicial doctrines, and disciplinary structures that shield Chisholm and his cohorts should be reformed to prevent this type of abuse from ever happening again. 
Only Conservatives Faced Chisholm’s Intimidation
Chisholm’s jihad against Walker’s allies has been clouded from the start. His personal antipathy for Walker is publicly known. His wife is a union steward reportedly brought by to tears by Walker’s union-busting Act 10. Both Chisholm and his wife have apparently attended anti-Act 10 union rallies. And according to whistleblower Michael Lutz, Chisholm considered it his “personal duty” to stop Walker
The 'progressive' Democrats are used to abusing their power and never being held accountable.  Whether is is the GAB, IRS or any of the alphabet agencies of BIG government the 'progressives' think their ends always justify their means.

Iran's Supreme Leader Mocks the U.S. With Post-Deal Letter to Obama

Iran's Supreme Leader Mocks the U.S. With Post-Deal Letter to Obama


IRONY: 'You are well aware that some of the six states participating in negotiations are not trustworthy at all,' Khamenei wrote in a stunning rhetorical act of jiu-jitsu. posted online just 8 minutes after Obama's press conference concluded

Iran’s Version of Nuclear Deal Differs Even at Press Release Level

The United States and three Western Countries, plus Russia and China, say they’ve reached a historic agreement with Iran to curb its nuclear program. 
The deal’s general outline has been described as putting tough restrictions on Iran’s nuclear plans and setting up an inspections regime to verify that Iran is meeting its obligations. In exchange, the sanctions on Iran will be dropped, allowing Iran to sell more oil and become part of the international financial system. 
But the most scant examination of the Iranian version of the deal reveals disturbing differences between it and the Western version.
Some of the differences:
Obama insisted the deal cuts off “every pathway” Iran has to acquire a nuclear weapon. It removes two-thirds of Iran’s centrifuges; Iran commits to avoid using its advance centrifuges for 10 years; Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium and weapons-grade plutonium will remain limited for 15 years. 
But Iran’s version of the deal, according to IRNA, says “All nuclear installations and sites are to continue their work contrary to the early demands of the other party, none of them will be dismantled.
More:
Secretary of State John Kerry also went into more details about the deal in Vienna, saying that it does Allow Iran to enrich uranium, but only up to 3.67 percent, which is needed for civilian—medicinal—purposes, but a whole lot lower than what is required to build a weapon. 
IRNA says: “Iran’s nuclear infrastructure will remain intact, no centrifuges will be dismantled and research and development on key and advanced centrifuges such as IR-4, IR-5, IR-6, IR-8 will continue.”
And:
Kerry said Iran has agreed to turn its Fordow facility, an underground bunker, into a research facility that will invite world scientists to work there. 
As to the heavy-water reactor in Arak, which was capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium—it will be rebuilt using a design approved by the international community, according to Kerry. And that design, Kerry said, would make the production of weapons-grade plutonium there impossible. 
IRNA says: “Arak Heavy Water Reactor will continue its work and remain intact, to be modernized, and equipped with latest technology, new laboratories and new installations and through cooperation with the owners of most sophisticated and most secure technologies in the world, early demands for dismantling or changing it to a light water reactor is void.”
Both sides are talking about the same deal?

347,000 Convicted Criminal Illegal Immigrants in the Country Roam Free

Conveniently hidden under the headline at TheHill.com is the fact that 347,000 convicted illegal immigrant criminals roam our streets, even though the Obama administration says it deports criminals. Somehow they are are deported while hundreds of leftist run cities passed sanctuary city ordinances that somehow supersede Federal law to prevent such deportations.

From TheHill.com:
Fed data: 1,400 released immigrants convicted of new crimes


More than 1,400 immigrants on the path to deportation who have been released by the federal government have gone on to be convicted of new crimes ranging from sexual assault to burglary, according to federal data. 
Additionally, there are more than 347,000 convicted criminal immigrants in the country illegally who have been released onto the streets. About half of those are currently in removal proceedings, and the rest have received orders to be removed from the country but are still roaming free.

The new data released by the House Judiciary Committee, which received it from Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is sure to rile conservative critics of the Obama administration’s immigration enforcement policy. 
The Democrats Promise, but  NEVER secure the border
The news comes on the heels of a woman’s killing in a popular San Francisco waterfront that authorities say was committed by an undocumented immigrant who had been convicted of a felony and had been deported from the country five times. 
“Despite DHS’s [the Department of Homeland Security] pledge to prioritize the removal of serious criminal aliens, in the last year the number of administrative arrests of criminal aliens has fallen by a third and the department continues to release thousands of such aliens onto our streets,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said during a hearing with department Secretary Jeh Johnson on Tuesday. 
“This effectively releases criminal aliens onto the streets, with all too tragic results,” he added. 
In the wake of the San Francisco killing, conservatives have jumped on the chance to blast“sanctuary cities” that ignore federal immigration orders, and accuse the administration of letting them get away with it.

“The clear answer to this problem is for DHS to mandate compliance with detainers and for this administration to defend the mandatory nature of detainers in federal court,” Goodlatte railed on Tuesday. 
"The last time I looked we had a supremacy clause [in the Constitution], so federal law trumps state law, and God knows it trumps the law in San Francisco," echoed Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). 
Johnson refuted the criticism.
While he encouraged cities to abide by federal orders, he said that they should not be forced to do so. 
“I do not think we should mandate the conduct of state and local law enforcement though legislation,” Johnson said. 
Instead, “the most effective way” to get jurisdictions to abide by its orders “is through a cooperative effort with a program that removes the legal and political controversy," he said.
This administration and the Democrats have no desire to secure the border. In fact, their open embrace of lawlessness starts at the top with Barack Obama.  He admitted that his executive action on immigration would be illegal yet he did it anyway. 

Then again, the Democrats have always lied about 'immigration reform'

Son of Boston Police Captain Arrested Over Alleged ISIS-Inspired Terror Plot

ABC News details one of the disrupted terror plots made over the July 4th weekend.
Son of Boston Police Captain Arrested as Possible Terrorist

The estranged son of a respected Boston police captain was arrested July 4 by FBI agents as part of a counter-terrorism operation against alleged ISIS-inspired domestic terrorists, federal officials told ABC News today. 
Alexander Ciccolo, 23, of Adams, Mass., was taken into custody on gun charges after buying two pistols and two rifles from an undercover FBI confidential informant, federal officials said. In a search of his apartment, officials reported they found it loaded with possible bomb-making equipment including a pressure cooker, a variety of chemicals, an alarm clock, along with “attack planning papers” and “jihad” paperwork. FBI agents said he used the name Abu Ali al-Amriki and neighbors said he was a recent convert to Islam.

“This is a very bad person arrested before he could do very bad things,” one senior federal official briefed on the arrest told ABC News. 
According to the FBI, Ciccolo attempted to stab a nurse in the head with a pen during a routine screening, “leaving a hole in the nurse’s skin.” 
An FBI affidavit said Ciccolo initially planned to travel to “another state” and used a pressure cooker bomb “to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel.” The FBI said the attack location was later changed to a town with a state university and would be concentrated on “college dorms and cafeteria, to include executions of students, which would be broadcast live via the internet.”

Ciccolo’s father is Boston police Captain Robert Ciccolo, a veteran commander assigned to Operations at Boston Police headquarters who was one of the first responders to the deadlyBoston Marathon bombing in April 2013. According to the FBI, the younger Ciccolo said he was “inspired” by the Marathon bombing and the use of pressure cooker bombs, and told the FBI undercover operative, “Allahu Akbar!!! I got the pressure cooker today.”
Law enforcement officials said Capt. Ciccolo alerted counter-terrorism authorities about a year ago that his son, with whom he had had minimal contact for several years, “was going off the deep end” and “spouting extremist jihadist sympathies.”

Another 'jihadi' is off the streets today thanks in no small part to his father.  The religion of peace strikes again. Three things....

Drug Kingpin Once Armed by Obama Admin Escapes from Mexican Prison

The Washington Post reports the jailbreak of drug kingpin Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman from prison in Mexico. The Mexican government and the Obama administration's connections to Guzman are nothing short of criminal. Guzman heads the Sinaloa drug cartel, the most powerful in Mexico and  it happens to control the drug trade in Chicago . This was the same drug cartel that was armed with 'assault weapons' by the ATF under Barack Obama and Eric Holder. The same administration that uses increasing gun violence in Mexico to push for more gun control in the United States.

Drug lord Chapo Guzman tunnels out of maximum-security Mexico prison

MEXICO CITY — Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the world’s most famous drug lord, has escaped from a maximum security prison in Mexico for the second time in his drug-running career, a spectacular breach of security that set off a massive manhunt in the early hours Sunday.
For the past year and a half, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel had been incarcerated inside the Altiplano, a federal facility set amid farmland west of the capital that holds the top captured drug bosses and has been described as the country’s most impenetrable prison. 
That all changed late Saturday night, when Guzman slipped out of the prison through a rectangular passage in the shower area of his cell that led to a nearly mile-long tunnel running underneath the prison, according to Mexico’s national security commissioner, Monte Alejandro Rubido.

The Associated Press video reports that this is his SECOND escape from prison in Mexico.

Washington Post continued:
In a brief morning news conference, Rubido said that Guzman was last seen inside the prison around 8 p.m. while receiving his daily dose of medication. After guards realized he had disappeared, they found the hatch that led by ladder down to the tunnel, which was illuminated, perforated with PVC piping for ventilation and equipped with adapted motorcycle-on-rails to whisk the drug lord to freedom. 
The escape of Guzman is a staggering blow for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who had been building a strong reputation for arresting top drug bosses from all the major cartels. However, as his administration has succeeded in weakening some cartels, such as the Zetas and the Knights Templar, others are now ascendant, including the New Generation cartel in Jalisco. 
But the failure to hold the country’s most important drug trafficker reveals the weakness of Mexico’s justice system and will add to the perception that the state has become so riddled with corruption that powerful criminals can in fact exist above the law. 
The manner of Guzman’s escape suggests that his rescue operation was well-planned and financed and may have occurred with the complicity of officials inside the prison. 
But in the Sinaloa Cartel, Guzman still has a large and lucrative drug-running operation to welcome him back into the fold. 
In February 2014, Guzman was captured by a team of Mexican commandos while he was sleeping in the Miramar condominium in the beach town of Mazatlan. The arrest came after a series of military operations, which relied heavily on intelligence gathered by U.S. law enforcement officials, that led to houses with their own elaborate tunnel network in the Pacific Coast state of Sinaloa that Guzman had used to evade capture for years.

 'El Chapo'  had extensive connections inside the Mexican and United States Government. In fact, the Sinaloa Cartel was armed with 'assault weapons' by the Obama administration in Operation Fast and Furious. 

More from WaPo
The escape promises to be a major irritant in the relations between the U.S. and Mexican governments. American officials had pressed for Guzman’s extradition so that he could be prosecuted for drug crimes and held in the type of facility where he would be more secure. But Mexican officials took it as a point of pride and national sovereignty that they could hold even drug traffickers as powerful as Guzman in prison.

In Latest Embarrassment, House Dems Display Incorrect Confederate Flag

The Democratic party is always eager to pretend to fight racism wherever they can create it.  The latest episode of monumental stupidity shows that the party of the left and their beacon of justice and liberty is powered by a bunch of rather dim bulbs.

House Dems display incorrect Confederate flag

House Democrats referenced the wrong Confederate flag Thursday during a debate over the controversial symbol. 
A photo from floor debates shows a Confederate flag with 17 stars, according to a post on CSPAN’s Instagram account. 
The actual Confederate battle flag had 13 stars, one for each of the states that seceded from the Union before joining the Confederacy as of late 1861. 
CSPAN’s photo shows a number of House Democrats speaking by a cutout of the incorrect version on Thursday morning. 
Reps. James Clyburn (S.C.), Al Green (Texas), Keith Ellison (Minn.), David Cicilline (R.I.), Eric Swalwell (Calif.), Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas) and Terri Sewell (Ala.) all missed the apparent mistake. 
House GOP leaders abruptly canceled a vote Thursday on a spending bill for the Interior Department amid intraparty infighting over displays of the Confederate flag. 
The proposed legislation was shelved after the House moved to vote on an amendment to a measure that would continue allowing the display of the controversial symbol in certain federal cemeteries.

The Democratic party and the opportunists that inhabit its ranks in office and their coalition of astroturf activists know no shame as they peddle distortion after distortion and lie after lie,. from Ferguson to Charlotte.

Ferguson was an embarrassing lie for the Democrats, from Obama on down.....

Hillary Clinton Denies Being Subpoenaed: Investigators Release Subpoena

In a CNN interview on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton was caught in yet another lie.......
When CNN's Brianna Keilar asked Clinton in an exclusive interview on Tuesday about the decision to delete 33,000 emails while under investigation by a House panel, Clinton said other secretaries of state had done the "same thing." 
Keilar asked if her predecessors had also been subpoenaed, to which Clinton responded, "You're starting with so many assumptions ... I've never had a subpoena. Again, let's take a deep breath here." 
But House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy said Wednesday, "It couldn't be more plain." 
"To state that you never received a subpoena, you did get one, in March. Your lawyer was on notice months before that, that this committee of Congress wanted your work-related emails," the South Carolina Republican told CNN Wednesday. 
Gowdy requested Clinton's emails last December, but did not subpoena Clinton until this past March, following reports that she had maintained a personal email server.
Clinton lawyer David Kendall responded to the subpoena on March 27, writing that Clinton was awaiting approval from the State Department before providing them to the committee.



More from the Washington Free Beacon
Clinton conducted official business on two personal email accounts hosted on a “home-grown” server in her New York home. 
“There was no law, there was no regulation, there was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate,” she told CNN’s Brianna Keilar on Tuesday. 
That is inaccurate, according to Daniel Metcalfe, who ran the Justice Department’s Office of Information Policy during the Bill Clinton administration. 
“Anyone at [the National Archives and Records Administration] would have said you can’t use a personal email account for all of your official business,” Metcalfe told PolitiFact in March.
According to Gowdy, Clinton also skirted federal rules designed to preserve official documents and communications. 
“Secretary Clinton had a statutory duty to preserve records from her entire time in office, and she had a legal duty to cooperate with and tell the truth to congressional investigators requesting her records going back to September of 2012,” he said in his statement.




Select Committee on Benghazi Releases Clinton Subpoena
July 8, 2015
Press Release

Washington, DC—The House Select Committee on Benghazi today released its March 4, 2015, subpoena to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in response to her inaccurate claim she had not been subpoenaed. The committee subpoenaed Clinton directly after it became aware of her exclusive use of personal email and a server and that the State Department was not the custodian of Clinton’s official record. The State Department failed to reveal this essential information to the Benghazi Committee or any other investigation into the Benghazi terrorist attacks until days before a media outlet was going to publish the information, meaning no investigation prior to the Benghazi Committee’s had access to the Secretary of State’s communications as part of its review. 
“The committee has issued several subpoenas, but I have not sought to make them public," said committee Chairman Trey Gowdy. “I would not make this one public now, but after Secretary Clinton falsely claimed the committee did not subpoena her, I have no choice in order to correct the inaccuracy. The committee immediately subpoenaed Clinton personally after learning the full extent of her unusual email arrangement with herself, and would have done so earlier if the State Department or Clinton had been forthcoming that State did not maintain custody of her records and only Secretary Clinton herself had her records when Congress first requested them.” 
“The fact remains, despite when this subpoena was issued, Secretary Clinton had a statutory duty to preserve records from her entire time in office, and she had a legal duty to cooperate with and tell the truth to congressional investigators requesting her records going back to September of 2012. Yet despite direct congressional inquiry, she refused to inform the public of her unusual email arrangement. This information only came to light because of a Select Committee request, not a voluntary decision to turn over records almost two years after leaving office, records which always should have been in State’s custody." 
"Moreover, the timing of the Secretary's decision to delete and attempt to permanently destroy emails is curious at best. The Secretary left office in February of 2013. By her own admission she did not delete or destroy emails until the fall of 2014, well after this Committee had been actively engaged in securing her emails from the Department of State. For 20 months, it was not too burdensome or cumbersome for the Secretary to house records on her personal server but mysteriously in the fall of 2014 she decided to delete and attempt to permanently destroy those same records." 
The subpoena to Clinton can be found at the link.
Hillary Clinton has always denied, delayed, obfuscated and obstructed the Benghazi investigation.
