Via USA Today:

WASHINGTON — Sen. Ted Cruz, the first major Republican candidate to declare his White House candidacy, raised $2 million during the first three days of his presidential campaign — as his team deployed a mix of complex social-media strategy and behavioral analytics to reach and sway potential donors.

Hours before his announcement speech Monday in Lynchburg, Va., Cruz tweeted the news that he was running for president. That day, he had 5.7 million interactions on Facebook. So far, nearly two-thirds of his fundraising haul has flowed in through the Internet, aided behind the scenes by a team of data scientists who closely monitor social media and digital traffic to determine who’s reading their messages, who’s sharing them and who’s clicking through to his website and taking action.

‘Empire’ Actress Apologizes To LAPD Officer After Dash-Cam Shows Son Not Racially Profiled

270FFE5200000578-0-image-a-18_1427499894741

At least she apologized, Al Sharpton wouldn’t have…

Via Daily Mail:

Empire star Taraji P. Henson has issued a groveling apology to the LAPD admitting her son was not racially profiled.

The actress unleashed a scathing attack on officers earlier this week, accusing them of pulling over her 20-year-old son Marcel ‘for no reason’ to ‘illegally search his car’ in Glendale, California, in October.

But after the force released dash-cam footage showing the car streak through a red light, Henson has backtracked.

The video, released on Friday, shows Henson admit to having marijuana and Ritalin on him, before an officer also finds hash oil, a grinder and a knife.

After a short and calm conversation, the officer lets Henson drive off without a ticket.

Turkey The Gateway For ISIS Recruits, Can’t Tolerate Iran Bid To Dominate Middle East…

ISIS TURKEY

Erdogan would prefer the Caliphate.

Via Reuters

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused Iran on Thursday of trying to dominate the Middle East and said its efforts have begun annoying Ankara, as well as Saudi Arabia and Gulf Arab countries.

Turkey earlier said it supports the Saudi-led military operation against Houthi rebels in Yemen and called on the militia group and its “foreign supporters” to abandon acts which threaten peace and security in the region.

“Iran is trying to dominate the region,” said Erdogan, who is due to visit Tehran in early April. “Could this be allowed? This has begun annoying us, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf countries. This is really not tolerable and Iran has to see this,” he added in a press conference.[…]

Erdogan said the conflict has evolved into a sectarian one and urged Iran to withdraw. “Iran has to change its view. It has to withdraw any forces, whatever it has in Yemen, as well as Syria and Iraq and respect their territorial integrity.”

Erdogan’s plans to visit Iran had not changed, his spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, told journalists earlier on Thursday without giving a specific date.

In an interview with France 24, Erdogan also criticized Iran’s role in the fight against Islamic State in Iraq, saying Tehran was aiming to drive out the Sunni insurgents only to replace them.[…]

The most prominent Iranian military officer seen on the battlefield during the Tikrit offensive is Major-General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the al-Quds brigade of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

“This is someone I know very well,” Erdogan said, referring to Soleimani. “Yes, he is part of the operations in Iraq. So what is their objective? To increase the power of Shi’ite in Iraq. That’s what they want,” he said.

#Germanwings Pilot Told Girlfriend He Was Planning Horrific Act That Would Be Remembered Forever

He crashed in an area with which he was familiar, where he liked to fly glider planes.

Via Daily Mail:

Killer pilot Andreas Lubitz told an ex-lover he was planning an act so heinous his name would be remembered for ever, it was sensationally claimed last night.

Lubitz was a tormented, erratic man who was a master of hiding his darkest thoughts and would wake up from nightmares screaming ‘we’re going down’, the former partner said.

The 26-year-old Germanwings stewardess, known only as Maria W, revealed to a German newspaper how Lubitz ominously told her last year: ‘One day I will do something that will change the whole system, and then all will know my name and remember it.’

When she heard about the crash of Germanwings Flight 4U9525 on Tuesday, she remembered Lubitz’s menacing prophecy. ‘I never knew what he meant, but now it makes sense,’ she told Bild.

NY Times Editorial Board Member Questions Whether GOP More Loyal To Israel Than The United States…

NYT

Only in the world of NYC’s über-elitist libs is opposing Obama’s attempts to throw Israel to the Islamonazi wolves considered treason.

Via Free Beacon:

A member of the New York Times editorial board suggested that pro-Israel Republicans were more loyal to Israel than to the United States on Friday.

“Should loyalty b 2 US or Israel? [U.S. and Israel’s] interests not always same: GOP, in Shift, Demand Lockstep Support for Israel,” tweeted Carol Giacomo, who covers foreign affairs issues for the editorial board. Giacomo linked to an article originally headlined “Republicans, in Shift, Demand Lockstep Support for Israel” that was published in the Times on Friday. The article’s headline was later changed to “For G.O.P., Support for Israel Becomes New Litmus Test.”

The article highlighted how support for Israel has grown among Republicans in the two decades since the George H.W. Bush administration. It also reported that likely presidential contender Jeb Bush has faced backlash over one of his foreign policy advisers, former secretary of state Jim Baker.

Baker, who has a long history of supporting anti-Israel policies, gave the keynote address at the annual J Street conference earlier this week. Bush has spent the past few days doing damage control.

Seven Southwestern states will soon be infiltrated by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians.

Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks. Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them wil drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training.

But with residents of the entire states of Texas and Utah dubbed ‘hostile’ for the purposes of the exercises, Jade Helm has some concerned the drills are too realistic.

Via NY Post:

If you can’t trust a convicted terrorist, who can you trust?

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.

CBS Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Favorable Rating Takes A Nosedive To Just 26%, Down 32-Points From High…

Hillary

Ouch.

Via CBS News:

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.

Indiana Dem State Rep Claims Republican Colleague’s 18 Month Old Baby Is Racist Against Her

Here’s a thought. Maybe the baby can sense you are a Democrat and doesn’t like to be around people who make no sense.

Via Daily Caller:

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.’”

Police Release Dashcam Video Of The Arrest Of The Son Of Empire Actress, Refutes Her Claims Of ‘Racial Profiling’

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.

Via Daily Mail:

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.

Senior Defense Official: Bergdahl Wasn’t Deserting, He Was Trying To Reach Another Post To Report Unit Misconduct

US-AFGHANISTAN-MILITARY-HOSTAGE-POLITICS-FILES

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.

Feminist Outrage Of The Day: Instagram Is Sexist For Censoring “Gorgeous” Pic Of Woman With Menstrual Blood Stain…

instagram-logo

Errrr, yeah.

Via Feministing:

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.

Hillary Clinton Defies Subpoena, ‘Wiped Her Server Clean’ AFTER Govt Asked Her To Turn Over Emails – Laws Are For The Commoners…

Hillary Oooh

She should have claimed a hard drive failure, Bill could have backed her up. Update to this previous story.

Via NRO

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.
