Now in our eighteenth year!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

Islam at War with a Delusional, Suicidal West
Matt Barber
"Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance." – Barack Hussein Obama. Isn't it about time we crusade for self-defense? I'll say it again. Political correctness is a barrier to truth and a pathway to tyranny. It's also deadly… While Hillary is an appeaser, an apologist for Islam (or "dhimmi"), President Obama, I fear, is something far worse.

For Black Gun Owners, Bearing Arms is a Civil Rights Issue
In February 2015, Philip Smith started a Facebook group to make space for the often-overlooked concerns of law-abiding, license-carrying gun owners who happen to be African-American. Smith was tired of feeling conspicuous as the only black guy at the gun ranges he visited. Surely, he thought, there must be others out there, dealing with the same suspicions he faced when passersby glimpsed the Glock on his hip.

Hillary Tells NAACP Crowd That Police Have to
'stop the killings of African-Americans'

Just a day after three police officers were targeted and killed by a Muslim black nationalist in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hillary Clinton is demanding that it's the police who stop the violence. Clinton spoke to the NAACP Monday, saying that law enforcement must "root out" biases against black Americans and stop killing them.
Secret Document Lifts Iran Nuke Constraints
Key restrictions on Iran's nuclear program imposed under an internationally negotiated deal will start to ease years before the 15-year accord expires, advancing Tehran's ability to build a bomb even before the end of the pact, according to a document obtained Monday by The Associated Press. The confidential document is the only text linked to last year's deal between Iran and six foreign powers that hasn't been made public, although U.S. officials say members of Congress who expressed interest were briefed on its substance.
Obama Administration Defends UN-Funded,
Anti-Israel Textbooks for Palestinians

An elementary school textbook calls the 1948 establishment of Israel a "disaster," and a high school text tells of the "End of Days" when "Muslims fight the Jews," among other examples in a report from the Center for Near East Policy, a pro-Israel research institute based in Jerusalem. The UN agency, UNRWA, has come under scrutiny for years for supplying Palestinian schools with textbooks containing violent, anti-Israel references.
FBI Exoneration of Hillary Raises a Disturbing Question:
What if the Fix Was In?

Andrew P. Napolitano
What if the folks who run the Department of Political Justice recently were told that the republic would suffer if Hillary Clinton were indicted for espionage because Donald Trump might succeed Barack Obama in the presidency? What if espionage is the failure to safeguard state secrets and the evidence that Mrs. Clinton failed to safeguard them is unambiguous and overwhelming?
What if the Fix Was In?
Judge Napolitano Lays Out the Big Fix in Hillary's Email Investigation
Thomas Lifson
Judge Andrew Napolitano has put together a compelling case that a massive cover-up took place in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails. He writes it cleverly, with each sentence beginning, "What if…?" so as to be able to present hypotheses.
New York Times Sues for Defense Secretary Ash Carter's Emails
Carter's case has received little publicity in comparison to Clinton's, but it also raises questions about the security procedures in place at the top rungs of the executive branch – and whether officials are attempting to use their personal email accounts to skirt the Freedom of Information Act, the press and the public's main tool for forcing the release of government records short of the courts.
Scandal Rocks Democratic Party Truce On Eve of Confab
Democrats scrambled Sunday to contain damaging revelations of an insider effort to hobble Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign, with the party boss abruptly announcing her resignation on the eve of the convention to officially nominate Hillary Clinton. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she would step down at the end of the convention, a move that aimed to put an end to the scandal threatening an uneasy truce within the fractured party.

WikiLeaks' DNC Email Leak Reveals
Off The Record Media Correspondence, Collusion

WikiLeaks released over 20,000 emails on Friday allegedly sent from the accounts of U.S. Democratic National Committee officials, including dozens of off the record media correspondence. Dubbed the "Hillary Leaks series" by WikiLeaks, the leak is comprised of a searchable database of almost 20,000 emails with over 8,000 attachments and photos from the email accounts of top DNC employees.

DNC Approved Planting Satirical Craigslist Ad to
Mock Trump, Leaked Emails Show

The emails, just several of nearly 20,000 released by Wikileaks Friday, shows Deputy Communications Director Christina Freundlich seeking approval for the fictitious ad. Dated for May of 2016, the email thread begins with Freundlich stating how "digital created a fake craigslist jobs post for women who want to apply to jobs one of Trump's organizations."

9 Leaked Emails the DNC Doesn't Want You to See
Tom Cahill
20,000 new emails released by WikiLeaks on Friday show multiple examples of the Democratic National Committee coordinating with the Clinton campaign and major media figures to both build up Hillary Clinton and trash Bernie Sanders, all while claiming neutrality to the public. But the astonishingly deep level of collaboration and coordination has still gone unreported... Here are nine of the most egregious examples of the DNC actively working with the media and the Clinton campaign to smear Sanders:

One of Hillary's Top VP Picks Also Destroyed Emails,
Used a Secret Account

Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa and President Barack Obama's current secretary of agriculture, was caught up in a 2004 scandal that resulted in emails being "inadvertently" destroyed. Vilsack partially blamed himself for destroying emails regarding the Iowa Department of Economic Development Foundation... Vilsack's response to the controversy, rather ironically, mirrored Clinton's response to her own email scandal:
Feds: HUD Secretary Julián Castro Violated Hatch Act in
Interview Regarding Hillary Clinton

A U.S. Office of Special Counsel report released Monday found that Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro violated the Hatch Act, which restricts the political activity of some federal employees, during an April interview with Yahoo News. Castro's statements during the interview, according to a OSC news release, mixed his "personal political views with officials agency business despite his efforts to clarify that some answers were being given in his personal capacity."
Clinton Invites Families of Blacks Killed By Police to
Speak at Convention

Philadelphia's police union is blasting Hillary Clinton for inviting relatives of victims of police shootings to speak at the Democratic National Convention next week, but failing to include relatives of slain police officers. John McNesby, president of the FOP Lodge 5, said the union was "shocked and saddened" by the planned choice of speakers at the convention, which opens Monday in Philadelphia.
Tim Kaine Addresses Crowd in Spanish, Promises Amnesty Plan
'In the First 100 Days' in Office

"Hey, guys. Thank you!" he said as he took the podium, before immediately launching into a message in Spanish... "In our administration in the first 100 days we'll put forward a comprehensive immigration reform package that includes a path to citizenship," he shouted... His Spanish slogans existed separately from the rest of the speech and he did not always translate them into English for the rest of the crowd.
English content differed from Spanish content
KAINE 2011: 'Lying publicly is unforgivable'
In 2011, Hillary Clinton's new running mate Tim Kaine called on Anthony Weiner to resign from Congress because he lied to the American people. "Lying is unforgivable," Kaine said when asked about Weiner's sex scandal. "Lying publicly about something like this is unforgivable and he should resign." One wonders if he'll have the same standard for Hillary Clinton, the boss of Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin.
Mystery Surrounds Sources of Many Bill Clinton Speaking Fees
A review by the Washington Free Beacon found that Hillary Clinton often listed small foreign speaking firms as the sources of her husband's lecture payments in her Senate and State Department disclosures, even though the actual paychecks came from undisclosed third parties. In certain cases, these funders had interests that intersected with the U.S. State Department.
Keeping the Poor Impoverished Callous Eco-Imperialists Use Lies,
Scare Stories to Deny Poor Countries Better Living Standards

Paul Driessen
We are just now entering the age of industrialization, newly elected President Rodrigo Duterte said recently, explaining why the Philippines will not ratify the Paris climate accords. "Now that we're developing, you will impose a limit? That's absurd. It's being imposed upon us by the industrialized countries. They think they can dictate our destiny." More developing nations are taking the same stance – and rightly so.

Science or Advocacy?
David R. Legates
As attacks on "climate cataclysm" skeptics intensify, and the Democratic Party Platform demands replacing half of our fossil fuels with wind, solar and biofuel energy by 2050 – to prevent alleged climate disasters – there is a growing need for real climate science in our schools and body politic. Unfortunately, just the opposite is happening. Schools are replacing science with ideology and advocacy.

Real Climate Denial
Tim Kaine Misrepresents Cornwall Alliance on Senate Floor

Megan Toombs
As has been the case with other attempts to vilify, intimidate and silence experts who disagree with alarmist views on global warming and climate change, Kaine presented an argument rife with logical fallacies – appeals to emotion, straw men, ridicule, oversimplification and misrepresentation. The one thing the good Senator forgot to include in his speech was any sound science and ethics!
Kerry: Air Conditioners as Big a Threat as ISIS
"The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing," Kerry said. "Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it's because it is. It's the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year."

Press Driven Misconceptions from the Dallas Shooting Debunked
Last Thursday's police ambush in downtown Dallas was a perfect storm for confusion. A big, participatory event (the protest against police-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota) with media in place on the ground. Mix in social live-streaming through Facebook live and apps like Periscope. Add a violent act meant to inspire chaos, and misinformation is bound to flow freely.
The AR-15 is the Musket of Its Era
Charles C. W. Cooke
Those who wish to avoid such a change must thus ensure that their rifles are cast in the correct light. Day in and day out, the gun control movement attempts to represent the AR-15 as being in some way extravagant or outré-as the unlovely corruption of a worthwhile principle. "Sure," one hears it said, "I believe in the Second Amendment, but that gun just takes it too far." ... As the standard firearm of its day, the AR-15 does not represent some bizarre over-extension of the right to keep and bear arms. It is the very core of that right.
Customer with Concealed Carry Permit Shoots
Texas Waffle House Robber Brandishing AK-47

DeSoto police have identified the man who robbed a Waffle House last week with an AK-47, but was shot in the parking lot by a customer who was legally carrying a concealed handgun. Antione Devon Cooper, 26, of Dallas, reportedly stormed into the restaurant around 2:30 a.m. on July 7 brandishing the assault weapon.
Ohio Sheriff Urges Civilian Staff to Carry Weapons at Work
One southwest Ohio sheriff is encouraging staffers with licenses to carry to bring their weapons to work.

Since 2010, Refugees Have Not Been Screened for HIV Prior to Arrival
in U.S. Fulfilling an Obama Promise to Gay Activists

None of the estimated 400,000 refugees who have entered the United States since 2010 were screened for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in their overseas medical screenings, thanks to a change in federal regulations made by the Obama administration that year... No one knows exactly how much state and federal taxpayers are paying to treat HIV positive refugees.
'Angel Moms' Who Lost Children to Illegal Alien Crimes to
Hold Event at Wall Surrounding Paul Ryan's Home

On Saturday, American mothers who have buried their children as a result of illegal alien crime will be holding a press conference in front of Paul Ryan's personal border wall that protects his family and his estate. These "angel moms" say that Ryan has ignored the American families that have been torn apart by open borders for too long.
Republicans Accuse Democrats of 'Privately' Obstructing
Probe of Fetal Tissue Market

"The minority privately attempted to obstruct the panel's fact-finding mission," Chairman Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said of her Democrat counterparts... Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., a panel member, said the abortion industry "has been less than cooperative, and I think we have to ask ourselves why," adding: "If they're proud of this industry, if there's nothing to hide, if they think this is moral and meets the laws of America, open up. Give us the documents we asked for."
Obama Tells Cops to Admit Their Failures;
No Mention of his Own Shortcomings, Divisiveness

America's police will be safer when they admit they have a problem, Pres. Obama declared on Sunday at a bilateral event with the prime minister of Spain in Madrid. Fielding a question on Sunday, July 10, about the violence against police in Dallas, Texas last week, which left five officers dead, Obama said police officers will be safer once they acknowledge their failures:
Vermont Doctors Push Back Against Assisted-Suicide Requirement
Vermont doctors and health care professionals are pushing back against an interpretation of state law that they say requires them to help kill patients who wish to die. Members of two medical groups, the Vermont Alliance for Ethical Healthcare and Christian Medical & Dental Associations, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against officials in two state medical agencies responsible for the interpretation.
Library of Congress Continues Work on Scrubbing
"Illegal Alien" from the Records

Republicans in Congress moved to attach language to the pending appropriations bill which would require the Library of Congress to stick to terminology as it exists in current federal law. But since it hasn't passed yet, the Library is moving forward with the changes and keeping up the debate in the media.

How the Left Lies When Blacks Are Shot By Police
Matthew Vadum
In order to reinforce the false narrative that blacks are systematically discriminated against in America, the Left and its accomplices in the mainstream media spent much of last week lying over and over again about two black men shot to death by police officers... The Left creates alternate realities in order to justify or rationalize past events and to move its agenda forward.
Here are 35 Email Lies Hillary is Still Telling On Her Campaign Website
A 4,000-word "fact sheet" on Hillary Clinton's campaign website contains 35 lies, half-truths, obfuscations, evasive statements and falsehoods about her private email setup, a Daily Caller analysis shows. Clinton and her campaign have long referred to the "fact sheet" in response to questions about her use of a personal email account and private server.
Republican National Convention Kicks Off Amid Tensions of
Terrorism, Cop Killings

Donald Trump, who will officially claim the GOP’s presidential nomination Thursday, had already dedicated the convention’s first night to arguing he can restore a feeling of safety. Republicans said the turmoil of recent weeks – both terrorist-inspired attacks here and abroad, and heightened tensions between police and racial minorities – undercut the leadership of this White House. “How many law enforcement people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country?” Mr. Trump said...
Baton Rouge Shooter Gavin Eugene Long was Nation of Islam Member, Railed Against ‘Crackers’ on YouTube Channel
A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning. Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member.
Timeline: 'Officer down' Repeated in Baton Rouge
Police Shooting Recording

The officers appeared to have been caught off guard, according to a recording of police radio that began with calm exchanges and then quickly turned into frantic shouting. In the first 14 minutes of the recording, there were several instances of "officer down" or "deputy down." This is a timeline of how events unfolded.
Police Swipe at Obama Over Tensions;
Blame President for Sowing Distrust

“The man responsible for the murders [in Dallas] was Micah Johnson, but having said that, I do think the president by his inaction has contributed to a climate where these things can happen,” William Johnson, executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, which represents about 240,000 law enforcement officers, said Sunday. “This president and his administration absolutely do not have our back and make our jobs more dangerous.”
New Black Panther Party Forms Baton Rouge Chapter
The New Black Panthers arrived in Baton Rouge last Saturday to protest the officer-involved shooting death of 37-year-old Alton Sterling. Two videos of the shooting sparked national outcry and protests across Baton Rouge. Jerald Justice said the group was approached by local residents like Edwin Smith to help establish a Baton Rouge chapter.
Confirmation: Higher Resolution Images Show Philando Castile Handgun at Scene of Shooting – Media Driven Agenda in Collapse
The original narrative presented by Diamond "Lavish" Reynolds, in the aftermath of the Falcon Heights shooting, is in complete collapse. Reluctantly, even Mediaite and MSM are now having to concede [police] officers ... initially pulled over Philando Castile because he fit the exact description of an armed robbery suspect. The leak of the radio transmissions surrounding the stop is irrefutable evidence the MSM are forced to accept.
Fox News’ Shepard Smith Scolds Former Gov. Bobby Jindal,
Says ‘All Lives Matter’ is ‘Derogatory’

During a Sunday broadcast, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith scolded former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for daring to use the phrase “all lives matter.” Smith slapped at Jindal and insisted that the phrase is seen as a “derogatory” and racist term.

Obama Admin Has Released 'Tens of Thousands' of Criminal Illegal Aliens Because Their Home Countries Won't Take Them Back
A "substantial number" of those involve serious crimes, a government official said Thursday during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on so-called recalcitrant countries. Nations like China, Liberia and Guinea often refuse to take back their own citizens after being convicted of crimes in the U.S.
Clinton to Resettle One Million Muslim Migrants
During First Term Alone

Under Hillary Clinton's stated proposals, Muslim immigration would grow substantially faster [than 2001-2013], adding nearly one million Muslim migrants to the U.S. during her first term alone. Clinton has said that, as President, she would expand Muslim migration by importing an additional 65,000 Syrian refugees into the United States during the course of a single fiscal year.
House Democrats' Plan to Secure Nation is Less Than Two Pages Long
House Democrats' brief plan to address national security comes at a time when threats facing the nation and its allies are complex, as demonstrated by Wednesday's deadly truck attack in Nice, France... Last month House Republicans unveiled a 23-page national security and foreign policy agenda – roughly 15 times the length of the proposals released by their Democratic colleagues on Thursday.
Number of Islamist Terror Plots Against the U.S. Rises to 89:
Proactive Approach to Terrorism Needed

David Inserra
These three cases bring the number of terrorist incidents since the start of 2015 to 25, with 17 last year and eight so far this year. This is the most active period of terrorist activity in the U.S. since 9/11, with the growth in plots linked to the rise of ISIS. At least 21 of the 25 plots in the past year and half have been at least inspired by ISIS.
Six Canadian Cities Ban "Islamophobia" at CAIR's Behest
NCCM [National Council of Canadian Muslims, formerly the Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada (CAIR-CAN)] is the same group Jason MacDonald, former Director of Communications for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, accused to having "…documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas." So much for NCCM representing the interest of 'moderate' Muslims.
"$2 Billion a Year" – Illegal Immigrants Get More Food Stamp Benefits Than Poor American Citizens
There's a reason Americans are angered over illegal immigration and despite what liberal-leaning socialists like Hillary Clinton and the Huffington Post may suggest, it has absolutely nothing to do with racism. It's an economics issue, plain and simple. And as highlighted by a new report from the Washington Examiner, it's actually American citizens who are feeling the brunt of the pain and being treated unfairly, not the other way around:
House Takes Wasted Funds from EPA Autocrats
Puts Money Towards Something We Really Need

Rick Wells
Few agencies are more bloated, less responsive and more out of control that the EPA. They are the most loathed agency nationally for those who have been unfortunate enough to have had the occasion to deal with them. They are detested at levels even exceeding the animosity created by the IRS. Today Congress sent a strong message to Gina McCarthy and her band of bureaucratic bandits, cutting their funding to the tune of $70 million.
Britain SHUTS DOWN Its Global Warming Agency
Britain's new government abolished its Department of Energy and Climate Change Thursday morning, ridding the country of its global warming bureaucracy. Officials stated that the DECC has been abolished and U.K.'s environmental policy is will be transferred to a new ministry called the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Some former DECC's functions will be outright abolished, while others will be handed back to the new ministry.

“The committee has a responsibility to protect First Amendment rights of companies, academic institutions, scientists, and nonprofit organizations.

Killing Gun Rights By Smothering Gun Makers

Marshall Lewin
In a March 27 op-ed in the tabloid New York Daily News, Clinton wrote, "First, we need to repeal the law that gives the gun industry sweeping liability protections, so companies that make and sell guns can be held accountable when their products kill people." Then she goes on to push a laundry list of her other anti-gun proposals. But as usual, Hillary Clinton lies about the entire issue.
Nice Terror Attack Cut Short by Civilian Who Jumped Into Truck
Law enforcement sources in Nice confirmed Friday that the July 14 terror attack was cut short by a citizen who jumped into the cab of the semi-truck and fought with the terrorist driving the vehicle. The semi-driver, 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, was distracted and slowed by the citizen, allowing police to position, open fire, and end the attack.
I’m a Mom. Here’s What I’m Doing to Fight
Obama’s Transgender Agenda.

Bethany Kozma
To put it simply, a boy claiming gender confusion must now be allowed in the same shower, bathroom, or locker room with my daughter under the president’s transgender policies. When I learned that predators could abuse these new policies to hurt children in school lockers, shelters, pool showers, or other vulnerable public places like remote bathrooms in national parks, I realized I had to do something.
Connecticut Department of Children and Families:
Believing There are Only Two Genders is 'Genderism'

According the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), which published an LGBT glossary of more than 250 terms, the belief that there are only two genders – male and female – should be treated as "genderism."

Media Ignore the Tsunami of Black Violence Against Cops
Colin Flaherty
The shootings in Dallas did not make much of a difference. Not to the reporters explaining the protest and the reason behind the assassination of five police officers. The reason for the demonstration was simple and beyond pushback: White cops shoot black people all over the country, all the time, for no reason whatsoever. Everybody knows that. So sad.
Obama’s False Racism Claims are Putting Cops’ Lives in Danger
John R. Lott
Hours before the murders of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, President Obama was again spouting false claims about racism by the police. He sees racism whenever there is any disparity in outcomes, no matter what the cause. Obama and others inflame passions, but take no responsibility, and instead use events to push for more gun control. Yet, shouting racism can endanger the lives of police officers.
Obama Justice Department
Laughed Off Armed New Black Panther Threat

J. Christian Adams
In 2009 and 2010, lawyers working at the United States Justice Department warned top Obama political appointees and other Justice Department officials about the dangerous threats of New Black Panthers to kill police officers and other whites. I was one of those lawyers who delivered those warnings.

Dallas Attack: The 'Pigs in a Blanket' Crowd Got What They Wanted
Todd Starnes
I've noticed an unusual pattern with the Obama administration. Whenever there is a Muslim terrorist attack they are quick to urge people not to rush to judgment. And yet, when there is a police-involved shooting, it's "Guilty, Guilty, Guilty." In Dallas, the narrative is about guns. In Baton Rouge and Minnesota, the narrative is about racism.

Is Mainstream Media Being Hoodwinked by
BLM Activist Rev. Jeff Hood?

Judi McLeod
Incredibly, Rev. Jeff Hood has somehow become the primary victim of the horrors that went down in Dallas on Thursday night. Why turn the spotlight over to a self-described ‘police brutality’ activist and winner of the Next Generation Action Network’s ‘Person of the Year’ for his work against police brutality? In the telling of the story, wouldn’t an activist have his own axe to grind?

Are Blacks Disproportionately Involved in Police Shootings?
John Hinderaker
Listening to liberals like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, you would think that enormous numbers of black men are being gunned down by police officers. When the issue is debated, many take it for granted that a vastly disproportionate number of blacks are involved in police shootings–in fact, if you didn’t know better, you might think that only blacks are ever shot by policemen. The numbers tell a different story.
Soldier Demonstrates How Alton Sterling Could Have Posed a
Deadly Threat to Baton Rouge Cops Who Shot Him

A former U.S. Army soldier, posted a video to Facebook showing how easy it is to shoot a gun without ever taking it out of your pocket. While many still question the decision, pointing out that Sterling's hands were restricted, Brown's point is resonating. Since yesterday, the video has gone viral, with over a million views.

Minnesota: Confirmed – Philando Castile was an Armed Robbery
Suspect – False Media Narrative Now Driving Cop Killings

Saint Anthony, MN, Police Officers Jeronimo Yanez and Joseph Kauser pulled over Mr. Castile and Ms. Reynolds because the driver, Philando Castile, matched the suspect profile in an armed robbery which occurred on July 2nd, at a convenience store, only a few blocks from where their car was pulled over. The armed robbery occurred on July 2nd 7:30pm (Sat). The CCTV images were given to media and LEO by detectives on July 5th (Tuesday).

White House Petition to 'Formally Recognize BLM as a
Terrorist Organization' Picks Up Steam

A White House petition to "formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization" has started to pick up steam in the wake of the Dallas police shooting. At the time of publication, the petition – which was created the day before the attack – had earned more than 12,000 signatures, but still has far to go before reaching its goal of 100,000 by the August 5 deadline.
Barack Obama is Harnessing the Increasing Attacks on Police in Dallas to Push His Agenda to Federalize State and Local Police Forces
The [2014] report urges the federal government to federalize police training and practices, via the use of federal lawsuits, grants and threats to cut federal aid. So far, Obama's deputies have cajoled and sued more than 30 police jurisdictions to adopt federal rules in a slow-motion creation of a national police system, similar to the slow-motion creation of a federal-run health-sector via Obamacare.
Obama’s Biggest Failure – The president has substantially set back race relations in the United States.
Steven Malanga
When the country elected Barack Obama president in 2008, those of us who disagreed with many of his policy ideas were nonetheless consoled by the fact that his victory illustrated that America had moved well beyond institutional racism. Certainly the fact that Obama had succeeded in both a hard-fought Democratic primary and a general election meant that the country was ready to move past the intense focus on race in our national politics. Boy, were we wrong!
James Comey Opens Floodgates as Attorneys Now Intend to
Ask for ‘the Clinton Deal’ for Their Clients

Though many see a double standard in FBI Director James Comey's decision not to recommend charges against the former secretary of state who used a personal and unsecured email system for official business, others see possibilities. Mark Zaid, a defense attorney for national security whistleblowers and people accused of mishandling secrets, says he plans to ask for “the Clinton deal” in the future.
Bret Stephens: Jim Comey and Our Political System

Bret Stephens,highly respected reporter for the Wall Street Journal, said that Jim Comey's decision was completely predictable. Comey, he says will always put politics first.

Is Hillary Morally Unfit to Be President?
Patrick J. Buchanan
FBI Director James Comey said, "I am not recommending prosecution, because, to do that, would be to force Hillary Clinton out of the race, and virtually decide the election of 2016. And that is my not decision. That is your decision. You, the American people, should decide, given all this evidence, if Clinton should be commander in chief. You decide if a public figure with a record of such recklessness and duplicity belongs in the Oval Office."
These Guns Dispel the Notion the Founding Fathers
Could Never Have Imagined Modern Assault Rifles

A popular gun control mantra is that the founding fathers could not have envisioned assault rifles when they wrote the Second Amendment.

FBI Flagged This Congressman as a Terrorist.
Here's Why He Opposes a New Gun Ban.

A well-known state senator at the time, McClintock was left stranded at the Sacramento International Airport about 10 years ago. He couldn't fly home under his own name. "If your fundamental constitutional rights can be withdrawn at a bureaucrat's whim" without due process, McClintock argues, "then the Bill of Rights means nothing." Democrats in Congress disagree.

Reject Socialism, Promote Capitalism
Rolf Yungclas
The key to America becoming the most prosperous and freedom-loving country in the world is our history of free-market capitalism and citizen-participatory limited government as outlined in our Constitution... If we continue to allow business as usual to continue, state governments will become nothing more than managers of federal programs, effectively abolishing the 9th and 10th Amendments to our Constitution.

How’d you like to be running a presidential campaign dependent on Muslims not acting up again between now and Nov. 8? It’s getting awfully hard for the media to keep being indignant about Trump’s proposed Muslim ban, as long as Muslims keep blowing things up and shooting people. I’m assuming here that The Washington Post has not already ruled the Muslims who blew up the Istanbul Airport to be self-hating gays infected by America’s culture of homophobia.

So the post-Brexit number-crunching is over and it turns out that the decisive support for Britain’s leaving the EU came not from right-wing nationalists but from working-class Labour voters.

Much of Britain’s prosperity in recent years has centered on London, which has done very well and become very pleased with itself.

Perhaps it was an unguarded moment, but the White House has seemingly confirmed that the Justice Department is conducting a “criminal investigation” regarding Hillary Clinton’s personal email use – despite persistent claims from the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee that investigators are pursuing a mere “security inquiry.”
Rights Groups Silent as Clinton Foundation Takes Millions from
Countries that Imprison Gays

The Clinton Foundation has accepted millions from Middle Eastern and other foreign governments that criminalize homosexuality – but prominent gay rights groups in America have stayed silent on the apparent disconnect between Hillary Clinton’s rhetoric and the donations. "Unquestionably, they´re not standing up for their principles," said Human Rights Foundation President Thor Halvorssen.
Obama Admin. On Pace to Issue One Million Green Cards, or
Lawful Permanent Residency, to Muslim Migrants

The total 832,014 new permanent residents do not include migrants on temporary, nonimmigrant visas – which allow foreign nationals to come to the U.S. temporarily for work, study, tourism and the like. As the subcommittee notes, the number also does not include those migrants who overstayed the terms of their visas.
Why so hard to tell the truth about Orlando?
Michael Graham
"Islam has a terrorism problem." Why is that sentence so hard to say? It's an obvious and indisputable fact. And yet in the aftermath of yet another Islam-inspired terror attack – the worst mass-casualty shooting in U.S. history – politicians and the press twist themselves into rhetorical pretzels to avoid even suggesting it.
"And Islam is not peace, please," she said.
Syrian Nun, Relief Leader: 'Whoever Says ISIS Has
No Connection to Islam ... Is a Liar – ISIS is Islam, Islam is ISIS'

Sister Hatune Dugan, who runs the Hatune Foundation that helps persecuted people around the world, especially Christians and other religious persecuted for their faith, said that people who claim the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam are lying because "ISIS is Islam" and "Islam is ISIS," and that the goal of ISIS is to convert the world to the Islamic religion.
What Obama Thinks of Islamism, Communism – and America
The 20th Century Through the Eyes of Barack Obama.

Elliott Abrams
There has been quite a debate recently about President Obama’s understanding of Islamism, and his refusal to use terms such as “Islamist terrorism.” But he has given us his view of another significant term: Communism. In one of his apparently innumerable conversations with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, President Obama explained his view of Communism.
European Arrests Show Jihadists Infiltrating Syrian Refugees;
Homeland Security Recommends Suspension of Refugee Plan;
Senate Democrats Block Bill Aimed at Curbing Plan

When Europe agreed to open its borders to Syrian refugees in response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our age, officials assured the Western world: we've got this. There will be no jihadists among them; and if there are, we'll be sure they won't get in. But it wasn't exactly true... Now the Obama admin increases number admitted to U.S.

51% of U.S. Muslims Want Sharia;
60% of Young Muslims More Loyal to Islam Than to U.S.

Jihad Watch – Robert Spencer
A considerable portion of U.S. domestic and foreign policy is based on the assumption that Islam in the U.S. will be different: that Muslims here believe differently from those elsewhere, and do not accept the doctrines of violence against and subjugation of unbelievers that have characterized Islam throughout its history. But on what is that assumption based? Nothing but wishful thinking.

Ultimate Sleeper Cell:
U.S.-Born Kids of Immigrants are Fertile Jihadist Recruiting Grounds

Stephen Dinan
"Historically, the 'high stress' generation for American immigrants has been second generation," said former CIA Director Michael V. Hayden. "Mom and Pop can rely on the culture of where they came from. Their grandchildren will be (more or less) thoroughly American. The generation in between, though, is anchored neither in the old or in the new. They often are searching for self or identity beyond self."

Afghanistan Migration Surging into America; 99% Support Sharia Law
Julia Hahn
Between 2001 and 2013, the U.S. permanently resettled nearly 30,000 Afghan migrants on green cards. According to Pew, nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) support sharia law as official law. As legal immigrants, these migrants will be granted lifetime resettlement privileges will be given automatic work permits, welfare access, and the ability to become voting citizens.

Two Critical Conclusions from Orlando Terror Attack
Ambassador John Bolton
We simply must start acknowledging that terrorists – whether ISIS, Al Qaeda, or others – are not structured like governments or corporations. Nor do they function like spy networks and subversive political movements of days gone by. They do not carry party identification cards. They do not communicate through dead drops, brush passes, invisible ink and microdots.

Egyptian Mag.: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrates Obama Administration
An Egyptian magazine claims that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy... the story published in Egypt's Rose El-Youssef magazine suggests the six turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood." The six named people include:
Obama can't say Islamic Terrorism
You’re On Your Own When it Comes to Islamic Terrorism
Thanks, in Part, to Obama’s ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ Task Force

Judi McLeod
Struck in response to the San Bernardino attack, the mission of the ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ task force is to root out not the terrorist cells preparing for attack on home turf or abroad, but to foil the presumed blowback from right-wing ‘bigots’ and ‘Islamophobes’ who the government accuses of discriminating against Islamic terrorists.

Law Enforcement ‘Never Guessed’
Gay Club Would Be Targeted by Jihad
Robert Spencer
Why would they never have guessed? Because the FBI and other law enforcement agencies don't study Islam, and this is a direct result of Muslim groups demanding the removal of such material. Those who are committed to protecting us are taught to downplay and deny the motivating ideology behind jihad terror attacks.

The Islamic Radicals Want to Kill All of Us –
Gay, Straight, Christian and Jew

Todd Starnes
Convert or die. That is the war cry of the modern-day jihadist. "They target each and every one of us," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote in a powerful call to action. "Their objective, which they broadcast worldwide, is to murder or forcibly convert every single American." And as we saw in Orlando, Florida – this enemy shows no mercy.

Islamic Speaker Admits: Killing Gays is a Belief Held by
‘Moderate Muslims’ Yet the Regressive Left Still Defends Islam

Paul Joseph Watson
In light of the massacre of dozens of people at a gay club in Orlando, it's worth re-visiting the comments of Islamic speaker Fahad Qureshi, who admitted that the desire to see homosexuals killed was a belief held by so-called "moderate" Muslims. "I always try to tell them [the media] that….these are general views that every Muslim actually has….every Muslim believes in these things," says Qureshi.
Lynch: "Partial Transcript" of Orlando 911 Calls
Will Have References to Islamic Terrorism Removed

In an interview with NBC´s Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage. "What we´re not going to do is further proclaim this man´s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda," Lynch said.
Could Concealed Carry Have Saved Lives in Orlando?
Bob Owens
50 people were murdered in the most deadly terrorist attack in the United States since 9/11. Another 53 were injured. Predictably, the reliably anti-gun mainstream media was outraged at Trump's suggestion. But what do actual defensive firearms experts think?
Orlando Massacre Prompts Some in LGBT Community to Come Out –
for Trump and the 2nd Amendment

Some among the reliable Democratic constituency were not persuaded by President Obama's post-attack call for new gun control measures and renewed warning against painting Islam in a negative light. Trump's counter message that Americans – including those in the LGBT community – must protect themselves against the hatred of radical Muslims struck a chord with Stephen Zieman.
Gun stores have reported anecdotal evidence of a surge in gay people buying firearms.
Killing Homosexuals is Not ISIS Law, it is Muslim Law
Andrew C. McCarthy
There are various ways to interpret Islamic scripture in order to attempt to evolve it out of violence... Sharia, on the other hand, is basically set in stone. Even most Islamic reformers acknowledge that it badly needs reform – not that it can be reinterpreted, but that it needs to be changed. Its provisions and especially its draconian punishments were largely fixed a millennium ago. The mandate that homosexuals be killed is not from ISIS or al-Qaeda. It is from sharia – which draws on Muslim scripture.

In Wake of Orlando, Gays Should Arm Themselves:
Otherwise, in Gun-Free Zones Like the Pulse Nightclub,
We're Sitting Ducks to Maniacs and Terrorists

Tom G. Palmer
There has been jubilation on the internet at the massacre of peaceful people who were killed because they were gay and they were Americans. That made them a "twofer" for the so-called Islamic State, or ISIS. It's time to fight back. No more gun-free designated massacre zones.
Gun stores have reported anecdotal evidence of a surge in gay people buying firearms.
Gay People Respond to Gun Controllers:
Stop Trying to Ban Us from Protecting Ourselves

Bre Payton
In the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack, the worst strike on U.S. soil since 9/11, gay activists are speaking out about why gun control prevents LGBTQ people from protecting themselves. The Pink Pistols, a gay-friendly shooting club with dozens of chapters nationwide, released a statement on Sunday condemning the knee-jerk gun control efforts many public figures pushed for in the aftermath of the attack at a gay nightclub.
Homeland Security Told Not to say
‘Jihad’ or ‘Sharia’ or Any Words ‘Disrespectful to Muslims’

Less than a week before Omar Mateen walked into an Orlando gay club and killed or wounded more than 100 people, the Homeland Security Advisory Council submitted its Countering Violent Extremism report to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson. The report instructs the DHS not to use any language that might be "disrespectful" to Muslims, including (but not limited to) the words "jihad," "sharia" and "takfir."
Despite – or Because of – Orlando,
Weapons Fly Off Shelves at Gun Show

[Gun owners] think their critics are ignorant about both guns and the people who own them. And they believe they are the victims of a double standard – that the same people who are always careful to distinguish between Muslims and radical Muslims in discussing terrorism don’t hesitate to lump all gun enthusiasts together as mentally unstable people with a potentially homicidal fascination for “weapons of war.”
The red herring of gun control has been left out in the sun too long.
More Job-Killing Rules from EPA
‘The Social Cost of Methane’

Paul Driessen
Having already done yeoman’s work stifling economic growth and job creation, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is doubling down again. In June 3 EPA issued more rules: methane emission standards for new and modified oil and natural gas drilling, fracking, pipeline and other operations.
University of Wisconsin Students to Undergo Mandatory
'Cultural Competency Training'

The university has announced that it will require about 1,000 incoming students to participate in "cultural competency training" this fall, at a cost ranging between $150,000 and $200,000, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. The training will address "topics such as identity, culture and micro-aggressions," the newspaper reported. The State Journal defines the term "micro-aggressions" as "seemingly minor or unintentional slights that contribute to a hostile atmosphere for people of color."
Stunning Testimony: At Least 480,000 Overstayed Their Visas Last Year,
Adding to a Backlog That's Reached Some 5 Million Total

Immigration agents launched investigations into just 10,000 of them, or about 0.2 percent, and arrested fewer than 2,000, less than 0.04 percent, saying the others don't rise to the level of being priority targets. "We utilize our prioritization scheme along with the resources that we have," Craig Healy, assistant director for national security investigations at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said as he struggled to defend the Obama administration's meager efforts.
'We shall not take anyone in' Hungary Tells EU
It's Full and It Doesn't 'need' Immigration

Minister of the Prime Minister's Office Janos Lazar said: "We shall not take anyone in in Hungary, we do not need immigration in Hungary." Hungary passed a law on Monday that allows police to send illegal migrants detained within 8 km (5 miles) of its southern frontier back to Serbia, drawing criticism from the UN refugee agency.
Court Documents Show the IRS Focused Scrutiny on
Conservative Groups

Three-year-old allegations of political influence at the Internal Revenue Service are being revived as two House committees move toward punishing the IRS commissioner, John Koskinen.

California Election Corruption is Widespread
Katy Grimes
Thousands of voters in the June 7th California Primary election showed up at the polls across the state to discover their political party registrations had been changed. Hundreds of "dead voters" were recently uncovered in Southern California, the majority of them in Los Angeles County. Some of these deceased voters have even been voting for years, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Week ending 12 June 2016

What is Hillary Hiding?
Michael Ledeen
I think we've lost track of the central question: Why was she so eager to conceal her communications from Congress and the American public? Most of the commentary goes something like "because she wanted to evade discovery." She dreaded all the FOIAs. But that only leads to the question another time: What did she want to hide, and why?
America’s Second Chance to Prove Clintons Aren’t Above the Law
Michael Goodwin
As usual, Mark Twain had it right when he reputedly said, “History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.” He might have been envisioning the current Clinton drama and whether the nation learned anything from the last one. Seventeen years after the United States Senate rejected two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, America is getting a mulligan.
"Allah Akbar" 50 Killed In Shooting at Florida Nightclub
 Shooter was Licensed Security Officer, Known to FBI

A gunman who may have pledged allegiance to ISIS opened fire early Sunday morning in a packed Orlando nightclub, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53 more in a bloody scene that ended hours later when police stormed the building and killed the shooter. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack Sunday afternoon via its Amaq news agency, Reuters reported.
Orlando Gunman Tied to Radical Imam
Released from Prison Last Year

Omar Mateen, whose bloody siege inside a packed Orlando gay nightclub ended when SWAT teams stormed the building and killed him, was a radical Muslim who followed Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a law enforcement source said. “It is no coincidence that this happened in Orlando,” said a law enforcement source familiar with Robertson’s history of recruiting terrorists and inciting violence. “Mateen was enrolled in [Robertson’s online] Fundamental Islamic Knowledge Seminary.”
Coworker Complained to Company About Omar Mateen,
They Did Nothing Because He was Muslim

Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said Mateen frequently made homophobic and racial comments. Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because he was Muslim. Gilroy quit after he said Mateen began stalking him via multiple text messages – 20 or 30 a day. He also sent Gilroy 13 to 15 phone messages a day, he said.
Imam Speaking in Orlando Said
Gays Must Be Killed Out of 'Compassion'

Patrick Poole
This is not the first time that the gay community has been targeted by would-be jihadists. In fact, an imam speaking in Orlando in April said that killing gays according to Islamic law should be done "out of compassion". On Twitter I've noted two previous cases from 2014 in which Islamic terrorists, Musab Masmari and Ali Muhammad Brown, targeted the gay community.
Reuters: Migrants Linked to 69,000 Would-Be or
Actual Crimes in Germany in First Three Months of 2016

Migrants in Germany committed or tried to commit some 69,000 crimes in the first quarter of 2016, according to a police report that could raise unease, especially among anti-immigrant groups, about Chancellor Angela Merkel's liberal migrant policy... The report from the BKA federal police showed that migrants from northern Africa, Georgia and Serbia were disproportionately represented among the suspects.
Germany: Peaceful Muslims Burn Down 'Refugee' Center
After Not Receiving Ramadan Wake Up Call

According to the testimony of "several burly Moroccan refugees" which the paper had spoken to even as the hall burnt down, the Iranians employed by the German state to look after other migrants from around the world had "deliberately" not woken the Arabs up in time for their Ramadan breakfast following a long run dispute.
Obama Administration Surge Agenda Threatening U.S. with
100 Syrian Refugees per Day

The Obama administration has created a “resettlement surge center” which has produced a pouring of 100 Syrian refugees in the U.S. per day. The very real risk to Americans – the lack of proper vetting of these individuals by the quick processing that is being done, almost all of them reported to be Muslims.
DOJ Wants to Hide the Names of Illegal Aliens Granted Amnesty
Hans von Spakovsky
The Justice Department is resisting a judge's order to provide ethics training for its lawyers and is objecting to turning over to the court the names of illegal aliens who were granted what amounts to administrative amnesty ("deferrals") in stark violation of an injunction issued by the court.
Democrats Introduce Bill to Reinstate Votes of Convicted Felons;
Measure Would Nullify Constitution's 14th Amendment

A bill has been introduced in the U.S. House that would restore the voting rights of convicted felons. The No One Can Take Away Your Right to Vote Act of 2016 was introduced by Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.) and would amend the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to prohibit states from "disqualifying individuals convicted of criminal offenses, other than individuals convicted of murder, manslaughter, or sex crimes, from registering to vote or voting in elections for Federal office."
England Giving Up On Wind Power
John Hinderaker
Breaking Wind Hugh McNeal, chief executive of the British wind industry’s trade body, has acknowledged that with subsidies at an end, there won’t be any more wind turbine projects in England. Why? The wind doesn’t blow hard enough:“We are almost certainly not talking about the possibility of new plants in England. The project economics wouldn’t work; the wind speeds don’t allow for it.”

Denmark & Germany Join the UK in Breaking Wind

John reported here a few days ago that Britain was scaling back wind power, and it looks like much of the rest of Europe is following. The Global Warming Policy Foundation gives a nice roundup today, starting with Denmark, which is postponing additional offshore wind for almost ten years: “Denmark Scares Off Investors After Energy Agenda Is Jettisoned”
No matter how many turbines you build, you still have to have enough coal, gas or nuclear plants to meet peak demand.

Scrubbing Words is Nothing New for Team Obama
Paul Mirengoff
The Algemeiner [website] reminds of two past instances of record scrubbing – the kind of dishonesty evinced in what Tapper calls "lie number two" – by the Obama administration (it also cites a couple of examples from previous Democratic administrations). In both prior cases, as with the Psaki deletion, the Obama administration tampered with words in order to promote a false narrative on important matters of foreign policy and national security.
Despite Clinton Claims, 2012 Email Had Classified Marking
Hillary Clinton, from the moment her exclusive use of personal email for government business was exposed, has claimed nothing she sent or received was marked classified at the time. But a 2012 email released by the State Department appears to challenge that claim because it carries a classified code known as a "portion marking" – and that marking was on the email when it was sent directly to Clinton's account.

As it is a legacy accomplishment for Barack Obama, it has posed an unusual set of problems for Hillary Clinton. Clinton gave at least 45 speeches pimping the TPP:

Pro-life activists have asked JAMA to retract a 2005 paper that suggested fetuses can’t feel pain before the third trimester.

What’s more, they note, some of the authors failed to mention their ties to the abortion industry.

Research has found that powerful psychological issues, such as anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or alcohol or drug dependence often accompany gender dysphoria.
