A number of notable celebrities are already throwing their support behind 2016 presidential contenders.

Most of the famous faces are solidly in Hillary Clinton’s camp, with a host of celebs, including actress Lena Dunham and NBA icon Magic Johnson, taking to Twitter to show their support for the Democratic front-runner after she entered the race.

But a few stars, including Willie Robertson from A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” have favorites on the GOP side as well. The CEO of Duck Commander is a big supporter of his home-state Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.), a potential contender.

The Hill is keeping a list of prominent stars and the 2016 hopefuls they are supporting.

CELEBRITIES BACKING DEMOCRATS

Uzo Aduba — The actress from Netflix’s hit “Orange is the New Black” tweeted her support for Clinton.

Clay Aiken — The “American Idol” who fell short in his own bid for Congress last year initially panned Clinton’s announcement video on Twitter. “Hillary, I love you. But why are you the stiffest and most scripted looking person in this video,” he wrote. He confirmed his support for Clinton in a later tweet.

Kat Dennings — The “2 Broke Girls” actress tweeted “Hillary” after Clinton’s announcement.

Lena Dunham — The “Girls” creator and star took to Instagram to post the famous picture of Clinton reading her BlackBerry. Dunham’s caption read: “This is Hillary reading a text from me that says, ‘With you every step of the way, gurl’ #mypresident.”

Rand Paul Accepts Award, Goes After Lindsey Graham Again…

Is Rand afraid to go after Hillary?

Via The State

Just a few hours after Lindsey Graham finished arguing (in absentia) with Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator walked to a podium not far from the Capitol, to receive an award. Paul was one of three recipients of The Constitution Project’s Constitutional Champion prize, recognized for his work on criminal justice reform, NSA reform, and the separation of powers. When he took the mic, Paul spent 12 minutes discussing crime, calling for an end to mandatory minimums and all sentencing disparities.

Then he swung back at Graham – in absentia, and not by name.

“One unapologetic senator, who I’ve had a few rounds with, said if you’re not talking to terrorists, why are you worried?” Paul said. “He goes on to say that he (would) censor the mail, if he could. Really? This senator goes on to say that if you’re an American citizen, and you ask for a lawyer, you just tell ‘im to shut up. Really? Have we stooped so low that that is our standard? If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear? It’s a long way from innocent until proven guilty.”[…]

Hiding In The Scooby Van From Real Questions: Hillary AWOL From South Carolina Party Convention

Bernie Sanders Leads March Against Fast Track Trade

Hillary and the Scooby van couldn’t make it to the everyday Americans in SC.

Via WaPo

As Democratic leaders and activists gathered here Saturday for their annual state party convention, they chatted in corridors and at coffee stands about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Her campaign staffers buzzed around with clipboards signing up volunteers. To many, the promise of the first female president seemed exhilarating.

But the candidate was missing. In Clinton’s absence, her longtime booster, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, did his duty again. But the response from the 1,000 convention delegates and activists was luke warm. And when McAuliffe signaled for a video message from Clinton to play, there was a technical snafu. Then silence.

“It’s on her e-mail somewhere,” shouted one man from the back of the convention hall, referring to Clinton’s controversial use of a private e-mail server as secretary of state.

What soon followed were fresh reminders that although Clinton is as dominant a front-runner for the nomination as any non-incumbent in recent history, the hearts of party activists are not yet hers.

Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont toying with a primary challenge to Clinton, brought Democrats to their feet with a fiery sermon about the hollowed-out middle class and the rise of an “oligarchic form of society” controlled by billionaires.

The reception Sanders received — several delegates called him “electric” — surprised Rep. James E. Clyburn, the state’s most powerful Democrat, who took it all in from the back of the hall.

“I really did not anticipate that from Bernie,” Clyburn said. “It says something about people’s thirst and hunger for a real message.”[…]

The Clinton team is staffing up, with a half dozen paid organizers across the state, and has built a volunteer corps of more than 600. A top national staffer, Marlon Marshall, was in South Carolina working delegates. On Friday, he and other Clinton aides mingled with activists at Clyburn’s famous fish fry, a rollicking party staged inside a downtown parking garage with hip hop music blaring and people dancing into the night.

In 2008, Clinton’s ties to Clyburn were damaged when Bill Clinton made a series of anti-Obama comments on the campaign trail that many in this heavily African American state interpreted as race-baiting. This year, Hillary Clinton extended an olive branch when she hired a Clyburn protege, Clay Middleton, to run her South Carolina campaign.

FBI Investigating Possible Islamist Terror Threat To LAX, Parts Of CA

LAXAirport_1381773839904_1097424_ver1.0_320_240

Via Al Arabiya:

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is investigating a possible Islamist-inspired terrorism plot in the United States, CNN reported on Saturday, quoting law enforcement officials.

A Federal law enforcement official who asked not to be named said there was a known threat to Los Angeles International Airport, but did not say whether this was a new threat or was associated with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group.

CNN said the investigation started after intercepted communication and other intelligence information that led officials to believe that a plot could be under way.

The network quoted an official as saying the plot focused on parts of California and that officials there had stepped up security.

The Transportation Security Administration had also alerted local law enforcement agencies responsible for security around airports in the state although the possible threat was not necessarily related to aviation, CNN said.

It added that some U.S. cities had increased their security, but gave no further details.

No one at the FBI was immediately available to comment. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson also declined to comment on the reported threat to Las Angeles airport.

$70M School Budget For NH Town With 3,895 Students…

Voter apathy is to blame.

Via CNS News

The New Hampshire town of Merrimack recently approved a budget of $70,408,919 for a community that reports to have 3,895 kids enrolled in its public schools.

That comes to $18,076.74 per student for the annual budget.

According to the New Hampshire Department of Education, Merrimack schools (pre-school, kindergarten, elementary, middle and high schools) reported having a total of 3,895 students enrolled as of February of 2015.[…]

Reportedly voter turnout was low in Merrimack on the ballot that included the school budget. The Union Leader newspaper reported on April 14, “With about 18,000 registered voters in Merrimack, 2,166 ballots were cast on Tuesday.”

State Dept Spox Marie Harf Gushes Over Jane Fonda, Comes As ‘Date’ Of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

Warning for excessive leftist gushiness:

CNN invited Fonda to the dinner. Once again we see in even the little things, the incestuous relation of the media and the Left.

Via Daily Caller:

CNN Host Wolf Blitzer praised actress Jane Fonda and acting U.S. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf on Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“Nothing better than Jane Fonda,” the CNN host said of his guests.

“Can you believe I’m here with Jane Fonda and Marie Harf, acting spokeswoman of the State Department?! How cool is that?”

Harf joined in to gush about Fonda.

“I was looking forward to meeting Jane Fonda, so this was a dream come true,” Harf said. “We’ve already done selfies in the car.”

The State Department spokesperson also expressed interest in seeing other stars of the D.C.-based television shows “Veep” and “Scandal.”

Fonda shared kind words about her dinner date Wolf Blitzer.

“He’s smart. He’s cute. He’s progressive,” Fonda said on the dinner’s red carpet.

Fonda, who divorced CNN founder Ted Turner, recently starred in HBO television series “The Newsroom.”

She infamously was nicknamed “Hanoi Jane” in 1972 after visiting Vietnam and getting photographed on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft battery.

In a speech in Maryland this past January, she reportedly regrets the anti-war photograph and called it a “huge, huge mistake” but she still thinks the trip was an “incredible experience.”

New Mayor of City Near Ferguson Met By Police, Handed Articles Of Impeachment Over Voter Fraud…

Another game of guess the political party.

Via FOX News

The new mayor of a Missouri city had a tough first day on the job when she was met by police at City Hall and informed she had been suspended over allegations of voter fraud.

Betty McCray, the newly elected mayor of the city of Kinloch, was met in the parking lot at City Hall Thursday by police officers and the city attorney holding articles of impeachment, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

“You can’t come in as mayor,” attorney James Robinson told McCray. “You have been suspended.”

McCray, however, was defiant, telling Robinson, “You may be the attorney now, but I promise you, you won’t be later.”

The city, located between Ferguson and Lambert St. Louis Airport, has fewer than 300 residents and is plagued by shady land deals and bitter political fights, according to the Post-Dispatch.

“I won. The people spoke,” McCray said, according to MyFox2Now.com. “I was sworn in by the St. Louis County. Today I take office. I want them out, I want the keys.”[…]

On April 7, McCray defeated Mayor Darren Small 38 votes to 18. However, the outgoing administration refused to administer the oath of office to her after the allegations surfaced. She was later sworn in by a St. Louis County court clerk.

The city found that two of the apartments, where six people were registered to vote, were vacant and stripped of furniture and appliances. In one, only a jar of pickles and two used oxygen tanks remained among other debris, the Post-Dispatch reported.

McCray dismissed the allegations as absurd.

“It never came up until I ran for mayor,” McCray said.

This was not the only legal trouble facing the new mayor. In March, the city filed a lawsuit alleging she obtained a house fraudulently from the city in 2008, claiming that former mayor Keith Conway – who served time in prison for charges of wire fraud, theft from a federal program and witness tampering – gave her the house for free. McCray says she bought the four-bedroom house for $9,000.

“I didn’t defraud the city of anything,” McCray told The Post-Dispatch. “They are trying to get those homes back, so they can get the money and put it in their pocket.”

Clinton Foundation: “Yes, We Made Mistakes”

Mistakes were made, well, that just answers it all, doesn’t it?

Mistakes are picking up the wrong fork at the dinner with the Indian prime minister. Selling our uranium to the Russians isn’t a ‘mistake’…

Via Weekly Standard:

The Clinton Foundation is now admitting that mistakes were made. “[Y]es, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don’t happen in the future. We are committed to operating the Foundation responsibly and effectively to continue the life-changing work that this philanthropy is doing every day,” says Clinton Foundation acting CEO Maura Pally in a blog post.

The blog post reads:

Over the past few days, many questions have been raised about the Clinton Foundation, its initiatives, and the financial support that allows us to do the uniquely impactful philanthropic work that we do at home and around the world.

Without question the Foundation’s accomplishments stand on their own. From fighting obesity by helping create healthier learning environments for more than 11 million students; to working to combat one of our greatest global threats, climate change; to lowering the price of lifesaving antiretroviral drugs that have benefited more than 9 million people fighting HIV/AIDS; one thing is clear, the Clinton Foundation has not been afraid to take on big challenges and see real results.

Just as important as the results we see, is how the Foundation has transformed philanthropy into a collaborative effort by bringing NGOs, local stakeholders, government officials, private sector actors, and others together to maximize their collective investments. It seems logical, but fifteen years ago, that just wasn’t how philanthropy was done.

Charity Watchdogs: Clinton Foundation Put On ‘Problematic Watch List’, Called A “Slush Fund”

Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 9.52.32 AM

The wonder is why this hasn’t been called out long before this. Oh wait–MSM, never mind…

Via NY Post:

The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month.

The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.

The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.

On its 2013 tax forms, the most recent available, the foundation claimed it spent $30 million on payroll and employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent and office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel. None of the Clintons are on the payroll, but they do enjoy first-class flights paid for by the Foundation.

‘GoFundMe’ Shuts Down Page For Sweet Cakes Failure To Bake A Gay Wedding Cake, Doesn’t Fund Heinous Crimes…

Left still butt hurt over the success of Memories Pizza. Update to this previous story.

Via Washington Times

A crowdfunding campaign that had raised more than $109,000 for the Christian-owned bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Oregon was removed Saturday after complaints from gay-rights advocates.

The website GoFundMe said in a statement Saturday that it took down the page because the campaign violated the policy against raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful, or sexual acts.”

“The campaign entitled ‘Sweet Cakes by Melissa‘ involves formal charges. As such, our team has determined that it was in violation of GoFundMe’s Terms & Conditions,” said GoFundMe in an email statement.

“The money raised thus far will still be made available for withdrawal,” said GoFundMe.[…]

The crowdfunding campaign launched shortly after the award was announced Friday afternoon by Mark Kost. The site had collected more than $109,000 in less than eight hours.

But foes of the couple, led by Lisa Watson of Oregon, said on Facebook that they had urged GoFundMe to remove the crowdfunding page.

“Lisa Watson of Cupcake Jones started her own campaign to contact GoFundMe and report the campaign as being in violation of their terms of service,” said the website GoLocalPDX in a Saturday post.

“Watson’s own post on Facebook stated, ‘this business has been found GUILTY OF DISCRIMINATION and is being allowed to fundraise to pay their penalty. The gofundme terms of service address hate speech, bigotry, criminal activity, and sexism among other things in their campaign … The amount of money they have raised in a matter of a few hours by thousands of anonymous cowards is disgusting,’” said the website.[…]

Sweet Cakes by Melissa has since closed its doors, although the Kleins are still providing baked goods from their home. The Kleins, who have five children, have said they are now struggling to make ends meet.

300 Pound Man Dies In West Baton Rouge Parish Jail, Grieving Family Files Lawsuit For Excessive Force…

WBR Jail

He was ‘peacefully’ resisting arrest.

Via The Advocate

The family of a Jennings man who died at the West Baton Rouge Parish Jail shortly after he was arrested has filed a lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Office asserting sheriff’s deputies violated the man’s constitutional rights and used excessive force that led to the man’s death.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court on Tuesday, also accuses Sheriff Mike Cazes of failing to properly train his deputies and provide adequate supervision in the Nov. 26 arrest of Ervin Edwards.

The lawsuit claimed sheriff’s deputies used a stun gun on Edwards, 38, after he had a minor altercation with his girlfriend in the parking lot of the Chevron gas station on La. 415 in Port Allen.

Edwards died at the parish jail around 6 p.m. Nov. 26 where he was being held on resisting arrest and disturbing the peace, according to court documents.

The lawsuit says unidentified sheriff’s deputies used the stun gun on Edwards, which the family’s lawyer thinks may have led to Edward’s death.

“Even if this was a legitimate arrest you don’t have the right to kill someone,” attorney Joel Porter said Wednesday. “He was tased after the deputies were informed about his medical conditions. And not only did they tase him, they beat this man. I can assure you this family wants justice.”

Russian Hackers Obtained Some Of Obama’s Emails

Russian hackers reportedly obtained some of President Obama’s emails when the White House’s unclassified computer system was hacked last year, indicating that the breach was significantly more intrusive than originally thought.

Citing officials briefed on the investigation, The New York Times reported Saturday that while the hackers did not appear to have breached more carefully guarded servers that contain Obama’s BlackBerry messages, they did manage to obtain access to email archives of people with whom Obama communicated.

Officials did not tell The Times how many emails were obtained, but admitted that the unclassified system often contains highly sensitive information that includes schedules, email exchanges with ambassadors and diplomats, and debates about policy and legislation. The president’s email account itself does not appear to have been hacked
