Two angry US senators want to know why the Transportation Security Administration allowed a woman who admitted she planted bombs under police cars in the 1970s to join a program that lets selected passengers board planes with less rigorous screening than other fliers.
A TSA screener recognized Sarah Jane Olson, 67, boarding a flight at Minneapolis-St. Paul airport in June 2014, and asked a supervisor why she had been allowed into the PreCheck program, according to a report by the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general.
The supervisor ignored the complaint — after which a whistleblower contacted the inspector general. The IG also found that Olson should have been ineligible for the program because of her police record.

Most Americans (65 percent) say their opinion of Clinton has not changed in the wake of the email controversy, but 29 percent say their opinion of her has grown worse. Forty-nine percent of Republicans say their opinion of her is worse, as do 28 percent of independents.
More generally, 26 percent of Americans now have a favorable view of Hillary Clinton, while 37 percent view her unfavorably; another third are undecided or don’t have an opinion of her. As Clinton weighs a presidential bid, her favorable views are 12 points lower than they were in the fall of 2013, just months after leaving her position as secretary of state. Her unfavorable views have ticked up slightly, but the percentage that is undecided about her has risen eight points.
Clinton’s highest favorable rating in CBS News polling occurred in March 2009, early in her tenure as Secretary of State, when 58 percent of Americans viewed her favorably.

An Indiana Democratic state representative made a shocking claim during a floor speech earlier this week when she said a Republican colleague’s 18-month-old toddler was scared of her because she’s black.
Rep. Vanessa Summers was debating the Religious Freedom Restoration Act on Monday when she speculated that Republican Rep. Jud McMillin’s young son is a fledgling racist.
“I have told Representative McMillin I love his little son, but he’s scared of me because of my color,” Summers speculated. “And that’s horrible.”
“It’s true,” Summers said in response to groans from the legislative body.
“And that’s something we’re going to work on. We’ve talked about it. And we’re going to work on it.”
“I asked him ‘please, introduce your child to some people of color so that he won’t live his life as a prejudiced person.’”
Video indicates the son could have faces\d even more charges, but the cop was nice, and let him slide. Gets paid for his kindness with being accused of being a racist. Just unbelievable.

Video has emerged of the LAPD pulling over the 20-year-old son of Taraji P. Henson that appears to refute claims made by the Empire actress that he was racially profiled by police.
Henson hit headlines earlier this week by revealing in an interview that her son, Marcel Henson, was stopped in Glendale for no reason, then doing ‘exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car’.
‘It was bogus because they didn’t give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for,’ she told Interview magazine.
However the just-surfaced dashcam footage, taken in October last year, shows that Henson drove through a lighted crosswalk as a pedestrian walked across.
After being questioned, Henson admitted to having marijuana and Ritalin on him.
He was also found to hash oil, a grinder and a knife.
There’s a reason why his nickname around here is “Imam Kerry.”

They don’t care who they hurt, who they throw under the bus. They will slander his whole platoon rather than admit Obama shouldn’t have made the deal.
Washington (CNN)Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told the military he left his unit in eastern Afghanistan in July 2009 intending to walk to the nearest U.S. military outpost to report wrongdoing, believing he could not trust his own commanders to deal with his concerns, according to sources familiar with the Army investigation. It is the clearest indication yet of the motive behind his decision to leave his post.
Bergdahl was planning to report what he believed to be problems with “order and discipline” in his unit, a senior Defense official tells CNN. A second official says Bergdahl had “concerns about leadership issues at his base.”
This information is part of the report presented to General Mark Milley who this week decided to charge Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. This information outlines what could be a key part of Bergdahl’s defense, which the army is already aware of.
Both officials declined to be identified because of the legal proceedings against Berghahl, but both have direct knowledge of the information outlined in the report. “This was a kid who had leadership concerns on his mind,” the second official said. “He wasn’t fed up, he wasn’t planning to desert.”
Which of course explains why he would leave all his gear behind. Or write a letter home to his family about how disgusted with America he was. Nor does it square with any of the statements from multiple people in his platoon, all of whom said he deserted.
What violates Instagram’s community guidelines? Periods, apparently. Instagram has an ugly history of policing bodies. Over the last year the social media site has come under fire for banning images of women’s pubic hair — even though, according to Mic, Instagram has tolerated men’s pubic hair.
This week, Instagram told visual and spoken word artist Rupi Kaur that her self-portrait violated the app’s community guidelines. Her crime? The photo, which you can see below, shows Kaur with a small period leak.
The photo is gorgeous — but apparently periods, like women’s pubic hair, offends Instagram’s misogynist sense of propriety. In taking down Kaur’s photos, Instagram promotes a long tradition of shaming people who menstruate, most but not all of whom are women, as though their bodies are naturally dirty.

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton failed to provide any new documents to the congressional panel investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks, instead notifying the committee that she has “wipe[d] her server clean,” the lead investigator announced.
“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), the chairman of the select committee investigating the attacks, announced Friday evening.
“We learned today, from her attorney, Secretary Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server,” he continued. “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department.”
Clinton left it ambiguous, during her press conference, when asked about the existence of the emails. “At the end, I chose not to keep my private personal emails,” she said, while also insisting that “the server will remain private.”

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. human rights chief told the Security Council on Friday that in a “most terrible irony,” the Islamic State group may be more accepting of the ethnic diversity of its members than some states are about ethnic differences among their own citizens.
Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the first human rights chief from the Muslim and Arab worlds, spoke as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius chaired a special meeting on the abuses in the Middle East on ethnic and religious grounds. Both said the Security Council should refer the situations in Iraq and Syria to the International Criminal Court, and Zeid said the council should take unanimous action to end both conflicts.

There have been five presidents during that time, including three Republicans (Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush) and two Democrats (Bill Clinton and Barack Obama).
Reid was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1982 and then was elected to the Senate in 1986. He first took office in the House on Jan. 3, 1983, the first business day in January of that year. At the beginning of that day, according to the Monthly Statement of the Public Debt for December 1982, the total public debt of the federal government was $1,197,073,000,000.

As of December 2014, According to the Census Bureau, there were 116,827,000 households in the United States. The $16,955,289,814,977.42 that the debt has increased since Harry Reid first joined Congress thus equals $145,131.60 per household.

JACKSON, N.J. (AP) – A theme park plans to cut down more than 18,000 trees for the construction of what it says will be the largest solar farm in New Jersey.
Six Flags Great Adventure says the facility will generate 21.9 megawatts, or enough to power about 3,100 homes, and capable of meeting all of the park’s needs.
The facility will be located east of the safari park in Jackson and is expected to be operational during the second half of 2016.
Park President John Fitzgerald said in a statement that solar power will significantly reduce the park’s reliance on fossil fuels.
Six Flags spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher tells the Asbury Park Press the park and KDC Solar have pledged to replant 25,000 trees over a period of seven years.

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin, on his radio program yesterday, called Barrack Obama “the greatest threat the Jews face, not in this country but in Israel, since the 1930s.”
“I’ve got something on the tip of my tongue that I believe to be absolutely accurate,” said Mark Levin, “and I’m really weighing whether to say it or not.”
“I’m gonna say it,” Levin said. “Barack Obama, as a result of this (Obama administration declassifying documents revealing Israel’s nuclear program), including arming up the Islamonazis in Tehran, is the greatest threat the Jews face, not in this country but in Israel, since the 1930s. Do you agree with me Mr. Producer?”
“He’s the greatest threat they face since the 1930s,” Levin continued, “and I say that because he is doing more now to degrade Israel’s military and defense posture, its intelligence information – he’s doing more now to arm Israel’s enemy – than anybody.”
“The Germans are resisting what he’s doing; the French are resisting what he’s doing; the Israelis are resisting what he’s doing; the Arab countries are resisting what he’s doing,” stated Levin.
Peter King looking for some extra media attention by faking outrage after people reacted angrily to his baseless smearing of Ted Cruz.
Via The Hill:
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) on Friday said his staff have been abused by vulgar fans of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) who have made “adolescent” calls to his office.
King said “women and young interns” in his office have had to deal with unspeakable words from callers suffering “from severe cases of arrested development.”
“The puerile language used is what most kids outgrow and move beyond when they reach sophomore year in high school,” King told The Washington Post.
“The fact that women and young interns in my office have to listen to these perverse rantings is particularly shameful,” King said.
King acknowledged that Cruz “cannot be held responsible for all his supporters.”
Still, he said it was telling that boorish individuals were drawn to the Texas lawmaker.
“Clearly, Cruz has many decent and honorable supporters,” King argued. “At the same time, though, we must ask why he has such an unusual appeal to this low denominator in American politics.”
Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) is formally entering the race to succeed Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), with allies suggesting he already has enough support to win what could turn into an uncontested race.
According to a person familiar with his planning, Schumer has already called most of his colleagues in the Democratic caucus following Reid’s surprise announcement Friday morning that he would not seek re-election next year.
A formal statement is expected Friday afternoon, but the Schumer adviser made clear that the race was the New York senator’s to lose. “He had the commitments from the overwhelming majority,” the source said.
The fast-moving race was effectively over before it really started, as Reid threw his full support behind Schumer in a Friday morning interview with The Washington Post. Later Friday Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), Schumer’s longtime rival to succeed Reid, told the Post that he endorsed Schumer in an early morning conversation on the Senate floor after he figured out that Reid was announcing his retirement.

A second grader in McMinneville, Tennessee has been forced to shave his head after his principal said his “military” haircut wouldn’t be allowed in class.
According to Adam Stinnet’s parents, the seven-year-old boy got a “high and tight” haircut to imitate his brother, a soldier in the Army who has served in Afghanistan. Just one day later, on March 9, the family received a letter from the principal saying the boy’s new look violated a school rule against “mohawk haircuts and other extreme cuts.”
His parents disagreed and sent Adam to school again without cutting his hair. This time, his mother, Amy, was summoned to meet the principal in person, and was told that until Adam’s hairdo changed, he would not be allowed back in class.
Deciding that the hair wasn’t worth having Adam suspended, Amy decided to give in.
“I did shave his head,” Stinnett said Thursday, according to the Army Times. “With no hair, he looks sick all the time.”

All jokes aside, Eleanor Holmes Norton should not be allowed to drive a car.
D.C.’s delegate to Congress is making news for her parking skills. Video published by Roll Call shows Eleanor Holmes Norton awkwardly trying to wedge her car between two cars parked in angled spaces near the Capitol earlier this week. You could say that didn’t go well.
The video was shot Wednesday along New Jersey Avenue Southeast, between the Longworth and Cannon House Office buildings, according to Roll Call. Norton, 77, is seen trying to squeeze her silver, four-door sedan in between two other cars that are parked in angled spots. The only problem? Norton is trying to park straight.
In a story about what they’re calling the “worst parking job ever,” Roll Call reports they got the video from a tipster. Posted on their YouTube channel, it offers running commentary by the mystery guys behind the camera, who clearly can’t believe what they’re seeing out the window.
According to the video’s narrators, Norton hit the red SUV on the right “repeatedly.”
“If she parks like that, she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” one of them says on the video.
The 1 minute, 42-second long video shows Norton getting out of her car once to walk away before turning around and coming back to give it another shot. But instead, she grabs something she appears to have forgotten (according to Roll Call) out of her car and walks away– leaving the terrible parking job in her rear view mirror, if you will.
“If she leaves it like that, that’s the worst parking job I’ve ever witnessed,” one of the mystery guys behind the camera said.
Speaking exclusively to FOX 5’s Tom Fitzgerald on Thursday, Norton said she was late for a TV interview, in an area where she doesn’t normally park, and wasn’t expecting construction or the six-point turn she would need to execute in order to park.
“Don’t worry! I have signed up for parking lessons and I’m even thinking about upgrading to one of those self-parking cars,” said Norton.
