In related news, Charlie Rangel is still a world class asshole.

Via Raw Story:

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) accused Republicans on Friday of stifling Loretta Lynch’s nomination as Attorney General out of racial bias, comparing them to the “Dixiecrats” who opposed the Civil Rights Movement, Buzzfeed reported.

“They come from the same communities. They fight the same liberal ways of allowing people to vote,” Rangel told radio host Joe Madison. “They have the same way. They have the same Confederate heroes on their wall.”

“You know if this woman was white we wouldn’t be going through this,” Rangel argued. “As a matter of fact it has nothing to do with her. It has everything to do with Eric Holder and everything to do with the president.”

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept Office Ordered Employees Not To Use Private Email, Hillary And State Dept Lied When Asked About It Earlier This Week

Do as I say, not as I do…

Via Fox News:

An internal 2011 State Department cable, obtained by Fox News, shows that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s office told employees not to use personal email for security reasons — while at the same time, Clinton conducted all government business on a private account.

Sent to diplomatic and consular staff in June 2011, the unclassified cable, bearing Clinton’s electronic signature, made clear to employees they were expected to “avoid conducting official Department business from your personal e-mail accounts.” The message also said employees should not “auto-forward Department email to personal email accounts which is prohibited by Department policy.”

When questioned earlier this week, both the State Department and Hillary Clinton claimed there was no prohibition on using private email for work during her tenure.

That means that both the State Department and Hillary Clinton lied, thinking no one would be aware of the cable or the dictate her office had issued.

White House: Obama Probably Learned About Hillary’s Private Email Scandal By Reading It In The Newspaper…

obama-reading-letter

I’m beginning to think the White House is trolling us.

Via Washington Examiner:

The White House Friday implied that President Obama learned former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exclusively used a private email account only after “reading the newspaper.”

“I have no idea when the president first learned,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters of the simmering controversy. “I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if he had learned about that by reading the newspaper. The president has a lot of things on his plate. I’m not sure the details of a senior administration official’s email arrangement lands on the president’s desk with any regularity.”

Clinton, the presumptive Democratic frontrunner for the 2016 presidential nomination, has faced immense pressure in recent days after a GOP investigation revealed that she relied exclusively on personal email during her tenure at the State Department — and even established a private server to handle the digital messages.

Terrorist Responsible For 20% Of American Casualties In Iraq, Now Leading Iranian Militia In Iraq

Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 7.53.14 PM

So now we are allowing the enemy we defeated back into the country.

Via Fox News:

Twice designated a terrorist by the United States government, considered responsible for up to 20 percent of American casualties in the Iraq war, Major General Qasem Suleimani, the legendary Iranian spymaster and leader of the Quds Force – the elite special operations wing of the hardline Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – is now stirring alarm in Washington for doing something the Obama administration would ordinarily cheer: taking the fight to ISIS in Iraq.

Photographs circulating on social media show Suleimani operating alongside senior Iraqi officials in the theater in and around Tikrit, the Sunni ancestral home of Saddam Hussein that is located almost equidistant between Mosul, the ISIS-controlled city 120 miles to the north, and Baghdad, the capital of the Iraqi government 100 miles to the south.

She had been deported back to Honduras once before but returned to the U.S. and was here illegally, officials said. Records showed she was arrested for battery in Palm Beach County in 2013.

“At this time there appears to be no nexus to terrorism,” the FBI said in a statement.

Libs Petition City Of Buffalo To Change Its “Racist” Name…

Seriously?

Via Change.org:

As an enrolled member of Navajo Nation, it is mine, Mark Beasley’s, and my Native American colleagues’ position that the City of Buffalo and the the news outlet Buffalo News, owned by Berkshire Hathaway, should change their offensive and racist names containing the word “Buffalo.” Buffalo is the name of the animal that was driven almost to extinction by the non-Native forces in order to annihilate and drive out my ancestors from the American landscape. Within only a few years from the beginning of the campaign, all Native nations were driven off their lands and into reservations, where we have prior and since been unduly subjugated and and exposed to genocidal horrors unimaginable to the rest of the world and throughout history. End the use of racist and genocidal imagery and symbols toward Native Americans today. End the pain and denigration these symbols and images incite and the damage to the psyches of Native Americans everywhere. Drop “Buffalo” from the New York city and its main news source and restore Native people’s dignity.

Terror Attack: ‘Lone Wolf’ Palestinian Rams Car Into Crowd In Jerusalem: 7 Injured, Including 6 Female Soldiers

Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 8.23.00 PM

In Israel, they have no problem calling a terrorist, a terrorist…

Via Fox News:

A Palestinian motorist rammed his car into a group of people waiting for a train in east Jerusalem Friday morning injuring seven people, including six Israeli soldiers, before being shot and wounded by guards, police said.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri described the assault as a “terror attack.”

The motorist plowed his car into the curb after running over the group of people. Police said the man then got out of his car with a knife and stabbed a pedestrian before he was shot.

The injured and the motorist were taken to the hospital.

Police identified the attacker as a Palestinian man from east Jerusalem believed to be in his twenties. Police said certain attacks like these are difficult to prevent because they appear to be carried out by “lone wolf” assailants.

Obama: It’s Easier To Buy A Firearm Than A Book Or Vegetables In Some Neighborhoods…

Hmm, I wonder what those neighborhoods would look like?

Via Campus Reform:

It’s easier to buy a gun than a book or fresh vegetables in some neighborhoods, according to President Obama who spoke at a townhall at Benedict College on Friday.

Obama complained about Congress not passing stricter gun regulations to those at the historically black college in Columbia, S.C. Citing the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school in 2012, the president said Congress should have more than enough motivation to pass greater gun restrictions.

“As long as you can go in some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it is easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable, as long as that’s the case, we’re going to continue to see unnecessary violence” Obama said at the town hall meeting Friday afternoon.

Holder Prepared To Dismantle Ferguson Police Dept…If Necessary…

eric-holder-addresses-CBC

And now we get to the heart of it, it’s all about an exercise of federal government control, not about the facts. As we reported earlier, the DOJ report on the police department twisted facts to prove the supposedly ‘racist’ nature of the department.

WASHINGTON, March 6 (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday the Justice Department would use its full authority to demand police reforms in Ferguson, Missouri, including possibly going so far as dismantling the department accused of racial bias.

“We are prepared to use all the power that we have … to ensure that the situation changes there,” Holder told reporters.

Asked if that included dismantling the Ferguson Police Department, Holder said, “If that’s what’s necessary, we’re prepared to do that.”

Civil rights lawyers have previously said the county could absorb the functions of the Ferguson Police Department.

The Justice Department issued a report this week that found that police in Ferguson overwhelmingly arrested and issued traffic citations to black residents, creating a “toxic” environment with its policing practices.

REPORT: ATF Already Banned AR-15 Green Tip Ammo In Newest Regulation Guide…

ar-15 green tip

What the…

Via Townhall:

On Friday February 13 at 4:00 pm, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms released a proposal to ban commonly used M855 “green tip” AR-15 ammunition under the guise of law enforcement safety. The same day the proposal was released, on a Friday of a three day holiday weekend, ATF opened up a shortened 30-day period for the public to submit comments about the new regulation.

But it turns out, ATF has been working on a ban of AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition for quite some time and has already issued the ban in its new, 2014 Regulation Guide. For reference, ATF Regulation Guides come out approximately every ten years.

When you take a look at the 2005 ATF Regulation Guide, you’ll see an exemption for AR-15 “green-tip” ammunition, which means it exempted from the definition of “armor piercing” and therefore is legal on the federal level.

Psst DOJ, When You Go After Menendez, Don’t Forget Dirty Harry Reid’s Involvement…

Menendez dared to challenge Obama over Israel and Iran. Now he will be made to pay over charges that until now have languished. Very scary use of DOJ. But, this is de rigueur with this White House.

Via NJ.com:

Menendez (D-N.J.) is under federal investigation regarding his relationship with a donor, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen, and whether he interceded on behalf of his business interests with federal agencies and officials.

Menendez, who accepted flights on Melgen’s private jet and did not repay some of them until years later, has denied any wrongdoing and has set up a legal fund that has raised and spent about $1 million.

The Washington Post reported in March 2013 that a federal grand jury was looking into Menendez’s relationship with Melgen. The New Jersey Law Journal reports that the grand jury is “looking into gifts Menendez received from his friend, Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen, and actions the senator took on Melgen’s behalf.”

The New Jersey Law Journal report also said the government alleges that Menendez and then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met with then-Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius regarding Melgen in 2012 — something that has not been previously reported. The Washington Post in 2013 reported that Menendez met with the acting administrator of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding a Melgen billing dispute.

Sen. Menendez Outspoken And Highly Critical Of Obama On Iran, Cuba Deals; Considered WH’s Least Fav Dem…

Robert Menendez

As everyone is well aware of by now, the DOJ is bringing corruption charges against Sen. Menendez. Recently he’s been knocking the Obama admin pretty hard.

Like:

Being a top critic of Obama’s Iran deal.

Via Weekly Standard:

Menendez has been one of the top Democratic critics in Congress of the Obama administration’s negotiations and forthcoming deal with Iran over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions. Earlier this year, the New Jersey Democrat said the White House’s talking points on the Iran deal were “straight out of Tehran.”

Saying the Cuba trade deal will reward “brutal behavior”

Via The Hill:

Sen. Robert Menendez (N.J.), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is slamming President Obama over the deal to release an American held in Cuba.

“President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government,” Menendez, known for his tough stance on Cuba, said in a statement.

“There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation.”

American aid worker Alan Gross, who was held in Cuba for five years for trying to set up Internet for a small Jewish community, was released on Wednesday as the U.S. released three Cuban agents convicted of spying.

Menendez said the move “sets an extremely dangerous precedent.”

In fact, he’s emerged as one of the most troublesome obstacles to President Barack Obama’s legacy-building effort to end decades of U.S. estrangement with Cuba and Iran. He’s also poked the administration on its troubled relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with whom he shares a hawkish outlook towards Tehran.

But the senior senator from New Jersey, 61, is now in the news for a different reason, after CNN first reported Friday that the Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal charges against him.

Perhaps the last straw was Menendez’s AIPAC speech this past week:

Senior Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) blasted the Obama administration’s Iran policy while delivering a speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) national conference.

The AIPAC crowd cheered when Menendez, the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, vowed to stand up for Israel even when he faces opposition from “political friends.”

“When it comes to defending the U.S.-Israel relationship, I am not intimidated by anyone–not Israel’s political enemies, and not by my political friends when I believe they’re wrong,” declared Sen. Menendez before an enthusiastic AIPAC crowd.

“As long as I have an ounce of fight left in me, as long as I have a vote and a say and a chance to protect the interest of Israel, the region, and the national security interests of the United States–Iran will never have a pathway to a weapon,” he later added. “It will never threaten Israel or its neighbors, and it will never be in a position to start a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Not on my watch.”

Iran Gaining Ground In Iraq, Unhindered By U.S, As Shiite Forces Fight ISIS

Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 5.15.11 PM

Obama has effectively opened the door for a small-scale invasion of Iraq. The enemy of my enemy is my enemy, as Benjamin Netanyahu so succinctly put it.

AWJA, Iraq — All along the green irrigated plains in the heart of what American occupying troops used to call the Sunni triangle, lampposts and watchtowers are flying the flags of the Badr Organization, a Shiite militia long hated and feared by many Iraqi Sunnis.

The road from Baghdad to Tikrit is dotted with security checkpoints, many festooned with posters of Iran’s supreme leader and other Shiite figures. They stretch as far north as the village of Awja, the birthplace of Saddam Hussein, on the edge of Tikrit, within sight of the hulking palaces of the former ruler who ruthlessly crushed Shiite dissent.

More openly than ever before, Iran’s powerful influence in Iraq has been on display as the counteroffensive against Islamic State militants around Tikrit has unfolded in recent days. At every point, the Iranian-backed militias have taken the lead in the fight against the Islamic State here. Senior Iranian leaders have been openly helping direct the battle, and American officials say Iran’s Revolutionary Guards forces are taking part.

Little Brainwashed Marxists At UC Irvine Remove “Offensive” American Flag From “Inclusive” Space…

American Flag

Cali students once again showing their true colors.

Via Campus Reform:

The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted Tuesday to remove all flags, including American flags, from an inclusive space on campus because of their offensive nature.

The bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara, and accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy,” the bill reads.

The legislation argues that flags may be interpreted differently; the American flag, for example, can represent “American exceptionalism and superiority,” as well as oppression.

“[T]he American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the bill continues, arguing that “symbolism has negative and positive aspects that are interpreted differently by individuals.”

The anti-flag hanging bill adds that free speech, such as flags in inclusive spaces, can be interpreted as hate speech.

“[F]reedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible[,] can be interpreted as hate speech,” the bill reads.

“Let it be resolved that ASUCI make every effort to make the Associated Students main lobby space as inclusive as possible.”

Obama Threatens Federal Lawsuit Against Ferguson…

He’s watching you.

Via Washington Times:

Days after the Justice Department issued a scathing review of police practices in Ferguson, Missouri, President Obama on Friday said the embattled city “will now have to make a decision” to either end discriminatory practices or face a federal lawsuit.

Speaking at a town-hall meeting at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, the president said the Justice Department findings aren’t a broad indictment of police procedure across the country but rather proof that bad actors exist in law enforcement and that institutionalized bias is not merely a fantasy.

In the Justice Department report, Attorney General Eric Holder described the situation in Ferguson as a “highly toxic” environment in which African-Americans were singled out and issued heavier fines and faced excessive use of force by police.

Seniors At Albuquerque High School Vote For Communism-Themed Prom…

“Prom-munism”. That’s super clever…..

(h/t Vanessa Oblinger)

Via KRQE:

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – They’re calling it “prom-munism.” Seniors at an Albuquerque school want their prom to have a Communism theme. Seniors at Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School near I-25 and Paseo del Norte voted online this week for the theme of their prom this year.

“They wanted prom-munism, so that’s what got voted for the most,” said senior Sarah Zachary.

She voted for “A Night in the Reef,” because the prom is expected to take place at the Albuquerque Aquarium on April 25.

“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” Zachary said.

However, students who asked to remain anonymous don’t believe Communism is a joking matter.

“I would hope Cottonwood would realize the seriousness of having a very powerful and destructive idea as the theme for a prom,” one student wrote.

Another said, “While the seniors meant no harm in their choice of theme, it is not appropriate.”

“Our students are in the International Baccalaureate program, so they are very academically focused,” said Sam Obenshain, executive director at Cottonwood. “One of the classes they enjoy the most is a world history class.”

Obenshain said, despite the vote, this is not a done deal. He said he plans to talk with the students about it next week.

In a recent speech, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) declared that Chicago is the “friendliest immigrant city in the nation” because under Mayor Rahm Emmanuel they “no longer cooperate with immigration authorities when it comes to the deportation or separation of our families.”

Gutierrez, chairman of the Democratic immigration task force and outspoken amnesty proponent, made the comments during a speech last week to the City Club of Chicago. In his remarks, Gutierrez proudly proclaimed that Chicago, under Emmanuel’s leadership, was blocking the deportation efforts of immigration authorities to protect illegal immigrants:

On immigration, I want to let everybody know, the city of Chicago is the friendliest immigrant city in the nation and Rahm Emmanuel had a lot to do with that. He made sure that we no longer cooperate with immigration authorities when it comes to the deportation and separation of our families by using city structures. Nobody can be asked when you enroll your kid in a school or seek out care because you’re injured what your immigration status is and that’s the law in the city of Chicago. I think that’s something.

FOIA Request Submitted In 2012 For Hillary’s Email Address Never Answered; Mysteriously Listed As “Closed”…

Side note: The group who filed the FOIA has since been taken over by David Brock, the far-left wing nut who created Media Matters.

Via WFB:

The State Department may have ignored or rejected a request made in 2012 under the Freedom of Information Act by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) seeking Hillary Clinton’s email addresses, according to a Daily Caller report on Thursday.

The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server for her email during her four years as secretary of state, skirting federal records laws, as well as State Department and Obama administration transparency guidelines, and raising suspicions that numerous public records requests for her emails were improperly blocked.

Anne Weismann, CREW’s general counsel, submitted a FOIA request to the State Department on Dec. 6, 2012, seeking “records sufficient to show the number of email accounts of or associated with Secretary Hilary Rodham Clinton, and the extent to which those email accounts are identifiable as those of or associated with Secretary Clinton.”

CREW’s request came on the heels of news that former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson had used an alias email account to conduct government business, and the organization was seeking to see if other senior officials used similar pseudonymous email accounts.

“CREW seeks to learn how widespread this practice is, and to evaluate the extent to which it has led to under-inclusive responses to FOIA, discovery, and congressional requests, and a failure to preserve records in a way that complies with the Federal Records Act,” Weismann wrote.
