Van Jones: Sarah Palin Had Democrats ‘Shaking In Their Boots’ In 2008…

Van Jones

Takes a lot for someone like Van Jones to admit this…

Via Truth Revolt:

On CNN Tuesday night, activist and former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones and television and radio host and author of “Hands Off My Gun” Dana Loesch discussed the latest Palin-bashing extravaganza the media is currently wallowing in. During the festivities, Van Jones let it slip that maybe Sarah Palin wasn’t as dumb and worthless as Democrats have tried to paint her for every second of every day since the moment she took the national stage. He opined:

“Sarah Palin .. people forget. She had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech at the convention. That was, hands down, one of the best convention speeches – not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills.”

Jury Convicts Ex-Blackwater Guards In 2007 Baghdad Killings…


How many days will they be talking about this on MSNBC?

Via Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – In a sweeping victory for the U.S. government, a federal jury on Wednesday found four former Blackwater guards guilty on nearly every count they faced in connection with the 2007 killing of 14 unarmed Iraqis at a Baghdad traffic circle.

Jurors found three of the ex-guards guilty of manslaughter and weapons charges, and a fourth guilty of murder.

The verdict comes more than seven years after the shooting incident that outraged Iraqis and inflamed anti-American sentiment around the world.

A court clerk read the jury’s verdict aloud on Wednesday around noon to a packed courtroom, repeating the word “guilty” 71 times as the defendants sat and listened silently.

Paul Slough, Dustin Heard and Evan Liberty were convicted of voluntary manslaughter in connection with at least 12 deaths at Nisur Square, where the Blackwater unit had been trying to clear a path for a U.S. State Department convoy. The Washington jury also found the three guilty of attempted manslaughter in connection with the wounding of at least 11 Iraqis who had been at the site.

Hilarious: Desperate Davis Campaign Busted Using Photo of VA College Republicans As Young TX Supporters…

This is just too funny. A group of College Republicans in Virginia tweeted out a couple photos of themselves after finishing up some door knocking for conservative candidates.

A “girl” named @Lisa_In_Austin grabbed one of the photos and tweeted “My friends and I just voted for a candidate who stands for ALL of Texas!” with a picture of the Virginia College Republicans attached as if they just voted for Wendy Davis in Texas. Abortion Barbie’s Twitter then retweeted it with the message “Go GenWendy!”

Annnddddd busted:

The obligatory mocking:

The fail of this campaign never ends. The Lisa_In_Austin Twitter account is also curiously disabled now. Is some creep just lurking around Twitter looking for pics of young people to post as fake Wendy Davis supporters? Wouldn’t doubt it.


Secret Service Sucks Again: Man Jumps WH Fence, Taken Down By Dog, Not Agents

Via The Hill:

A man was taken into custody Wednesday after jumping the fence on the North Lawn of the White House — the first such incident since a veteran with a knife was able to scale the fence surrounding the executive mansion and run inside.

Video of the incident shows a man wearing a dark shirt and white gym shorts on the lawn outside the White House being yelled at by Secret Service officers. He briefly lifted his shirt to show his chest before a pair of Secret Service dogs rushed to the man and pounced.

The fene-jumper struggled with the animals, landing repeated punches and kicks. Eventually, a Secret Service officer grabbed the man to lead him away.

Co-Founder Of Weather Channel: Climate Change Proved To Be “Nothing But A Big Lie”…

Global Warming Murder

Via Express UK:

John Coleman, who co-founded the Weather Channel, shocked academics by insisting the theory of man-made climate change was no longer scientifically credible.

Instead, what ‘little evidence’ there is for rising global temperatures points to a ‘natural phenomenon’ within a developing eco-system.

In an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, he wrote: “The ocean is not rising significantly.

“The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number.

“Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).

“I have studied this topic seriously for years. It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid.”

Mr Coleman said he based many of his views on the findings of the NIPCC, a non-governmental international body of scientists aimed at offering an ‘independent second opinion of the evidence reviewed by the IPCC.’

He added: “There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in the past and there is no reason to fear any in the future.

BREAKING: Canadian Officials ID Ottawa Gunman As Michael Zehef-Bibeau, Recently Had Passport Seized – Update: Police Confirm Shooter A Muslim Convert…

Armed RCMP officers head towards the Langevin Block on Parliament Hilll following a shooting incident in Ottawa

I’m guessing he was a Muslim convert who wanted to join ISIS.

Via Globe And Mail:

Federal sources have identified the suspected shooter as Michael Zehef-Bibeau, a man in his early 30s who was known to Canadian authorities.

Sources told The Globe and Mail that he was recently designated a “high-risk traveller” by the Canadian government and that his passport had been seized – the same circumstances surrounding the case of Martin Rouleau-Couture, the Quebecker who was shot Monday after running down two Canadian Forces soldiers with his car.


This is the picture the Islamic State Media accounts are purporting to be Michael


Update: Shock factor = Zero

(Reuters) – Canadian police are investigating a man identified as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau as a possible suspect in the shootings on Wednesday around parliament in Ottawa, a source familiar with the matter said.

Police said the male suspect in the attacks was dead but did not confirm he was Zehaf-Bibeau. Some U.S. government sources said the shooter was born Michael Joseph Hall but changed his name to Zehaf-Bibeau.

Two U.S. officials said that U.S. agencies have been advised that the shooter was a Canadian convert to Islam. One of the officials said the man was from Quebec.

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service declined to comment on the gunman’s identity.

Canada’s capital was jolted by the fatal shooting of a soldier and an attack on the parliament building on Wednesday, with gunshots fired outside a room where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was speaking.

The shooting was the second attack on Canadian soldiers in a week.

Ferguson Protesters Storm Police Department…


If sanity prevails and Officer Wilson is not charged, how do you think these people will react?

CLAYTON, MO (KTVI) – Protesters marched inside the St. Louis County Police Department Wednesday afternoon.  They are seeking justice for the death of Micheal Brown.

The group wanted to talk with the police commission.  Officers said that meeting has been cancelled.  Police then told the demonstrators to leave the building.  The protesters say they are now seeking justice in the streets.  KMOX’s Allison Blood reports that the group is headed to the spot in Ferguson where Michael Brown was killed.

Brown, 18, was shot and killed by a Ferguson Police officer in August.  Demonstrations have now gone on for more than 70 days.  New details have emerged recently about the shooting.  Leaks have appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the New York Times from the officer involved in the shooting that sparked the protests.

Looks like Foxy Brown made an appearance:

Atheist Group Plans To Hand Out An Illustration Of A Human Bible Sexually Assaulting A Woman At FL Public Schools…


Yet if someone were to hand out a Bible at a public school all hell would break lose.

Via CNS News:

( – The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, is planning to hand out in several Florida public high schools a pamphlet that features an illustration on its cover depicting a humanized Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

The pamphlet is entitled: “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible.”

The front cover of the small purple booklet is illustrated with a cartoon Bible–which has arms, legs, face and drooling mouth–sexually assaulting a screaming woman as she tries to escape its grasp.

According to a news release posted on its website, FFRF plans to distribute the pamphlet, along with several other brochures and a few books, in 11 public high schools in Orange County, Florida, in January. Orange County is in central part of the state and includes the city of Orlando.

The materials will be available at the high schools of the Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) on National Religious Freedom Day, which is Jan. 16. Each year, on this day, the OCPS allows outside religious groups to set up a table with pre-approved literature—including Bibles–that students can take if they choose.

Nothing To See Here: Illegal Voters Found On NC Voting Rolls…



Via Breitbart:

With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heat, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

According to a Winston-Salem Journal report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters Tuesday night when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.

DACA beneficiaries in North Carolina are able to obtain drivers licenses, but they are not able to vote.

The Journal notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.

“Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as “legally present,” according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. These are license holders who were not U.S. citizens when they got a license. They may have been green-card holders, foreign workers or foreign students, for example.”

Tingles: Democrats Distancing Themselves From Obama Like He Has Ebola…

Chris Matthews reacts to Democratic Senate candidates Michelle Nunn (D-GA) and Mark Begich (D-AK), an incumbent, dodging the question if they voted for Obama.

“That’s the way people walk past guys who are trying to get a buck or a quarter from somebody,” Matthews said describing the candidates ignoring the question from a tracker.

“It’s like Obama has Ebola,” Matthews said on Monday’s broadcast of Hardball on MSNBC. “I wasn’t near him! I didn’t touch him!”


WaPo: More Than A Half-Dozen Witnesses Have Given Testimony That Supports Officer’s Account Of Michael Brown Shooting…

And we already have a good idea what’s going to happen if charges are not filed against Officer Darren Wilson.

Via Washington Post:

Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown after they fought for control of the officer’s gun and after Brown moved toward Wilson as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which cast Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.

The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.

Canadian Soldiers Told Not To Wear Their Military Uniforms In Public…

Thanks to the Religion of Peace™

Via Fox News:

A top military official Tuesday warned soldiers in Canada’s eastern provinces to avoid wearing their uniforms in public out of fear of being targeted in the wake of deadly attacks on personnel in Quebec and Ontario.

In an email titled “urgent measures,” Rear Admiral John Newton – who commands the Maritime Forces Atlantic and Joint Task Force Atlantic, a combined 23,000 personnel – tells soldiers “to restrict movement in uniform in public as much as possible.”

The note also asks personnel to stay in their respective buildings for the time being and to get the message out quickly, according to the Halifax Herald News.

The email was sent out about an hour after a series of reported shootings in Ottawa.

In Halifax, Capt. Peter Ryan, a spokesman at the Stadacona base, told the Herald News that security measures have been changed from the norm.

It Begins: Top Senate Democratic Officials Start Lashing Out At “Embarrassing” White House…

obama-ap-smile_c0-29-700-437_s561x327 (1)

“The ineptitude of the White House political operation has sunk from annoying to embarrassing.”

Via National Journal:

The relationship between the White House and Senate Democrats hit a new low Tuesday evening after the administration’s press office released a transcript of first lady Michelle Obama’s appearance in Iowa on behalf of Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley. The problem: The subject line of the e-mail referred to Braley as the “Democratic candidate for governor.”

The botch came after the first lady repeatedly referred to the Democratic Senate nominee as “Bruce Bailey” in a campaign appearance earlier this month—and it took an attendee in the crowd to correct her mistake. On Tuesday, she made light of the incident, reminding the audience she messed up his name last time and joking that she sometimes calls Barack Obama “Bo.” But the self-inflicted errors continued after her speech with the White House press shop’s email. At midnight, two hours after the initial press release, the White House issued a corrected e-mail that reflected his accurate title.

Indicating the sensitivity of the mistake, top Senate Democratic officials wasted no time lashing out at the Obama administration’s political team in response, suggesting it was acting like a junior varsity operation two weeks before the midterms. The slipup comes one day after President Obama told Rev. Al Sharpton on his radio show that Senate Democrats keeping their distance from him are still “folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress.” That alarmed Senate Democrats up for reelection this November, most of whom are working hard to distance themselves from an unpopular president.

Canada Terror Update: Eyewitness Says Shooter Was Wearing A Palestinian-Style Keffiyeh, Had A Beard, “Shouted Something” After Gunning Down Soldier…

Anyone want to speculate about what he yelled? I’m guessing it rhymes with “Allah Snackbar.”

Via National Post:

I was about to give a speech five minutes from Parliament Hill when word came through that shots had been fired at the War Memorial.

The CBC’s Evan Solomon and I took off on foot, racing up Sparks Street and arrived at the Cenotaph a couple of minutes later to find a scene that is going to change this country forever.

A police officer raced toward the scene, shouting into his walkie talkie: “DND member down.” [...]

A friend, who does not wish to be identified, said he saw the whole thing from his office window, overlooking the Cenotaph.

“I saw the whole thing; it was unbelievable. Three shots, two at point blank range,” he said. The shooter was young, 30ish, Caucasian and male. He had dark, longish hair, facial hair and a black and white Palestinian type head scarf over his face, which he pulled down after the shooting. Then he held up the gun and shouted something that I didn’t hear.”

The young soldier was wearing a kilt — he is a reservist from the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada in Hamilton — and appeared to have a bloody chest wound. The thought struck me that there should be a very special place in Hell reserved for a terrorist who shoots a soldier guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that honours this country’s fallen.

US And Iraq Draw Up Plan For Ground Force Attack On ISIS…


Yet still saying no Americans will be participating in combat on the ground…

Via Independent UK:

The United States and Iraq are drawing up a campaign plan for offensive operations by Iraqi ground forces to gradually reclaim towns and cities that have been occupied by Isis, according to a senior US official.

The plan, described as methodical and time-consuming, will not begin in earnest for several months and is designed to ensure that Iraqi forces do not over-extend themselves before they are capable of taking and holding territory controlled by the militants.

It may also include American advisers in the field with the Iraqis, should that be recommended by American military commanders, said the official, who updated reporters on administration strategy on the condition of anonymity. The advisers, the official said, would not participate in combat. President Barack Obama has said repeatedly that no US ground forces would be deployed to Iraq.

Obama’s No-Show Ebola Czar FINALLY Starts Working…


Oh, thank God. What would anyone do without him there?! Ron Klain finally started “working” today after missing 2 White House meetings. He also won’t be at a House hearing on Friday.

Via Washington Times:

Political point man or medical manager? That is the persistent question for Ron Klain, who officially begins his tenure as the nation’s “Ebola response coordinator” on Wednesday. The choice of the deft Mr. Klain — an attorney and former chief of staff to Vice Presidents Joseph R. Biden and Al Gore and an associate counsel to former President Bill Clinton — has critics wondering if President Obama “sees Ebola as a political crisis, not a health crisis” in the words of Rep. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican.

It is certainly a strategic crisis, riddled with mixed messages and tardy responses that Mr. Klain must cobble into coherence for the press and an alarmed public. Both have noticed that the newly minted czar will not appear before an upcoming House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform hearing on Ebola chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican. That could change.

Meanwhile, there is also a report that Mr. Klain accepted his position because of a future appointment as a replacement for John Podesta, counselor to President Obama.
