Executive Rule-Reviewing Agency Head Says He’s Not Familiar With Proposed ATF Ammo Ban…

Playing dumb is a favorite past time of the nitwits in Washington…

Via CNS News:

CNSNews.com) – The head of the executive agency charged with reviewing the legality and economic impact of new federal rules admitted that he was “not familiar” with the Obama administration’s well-publicized proposal to ban ammunition for AR-15 rifles.

Howard Shelanski, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), made the admission during a heated exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Tuesday.

Jordan asked Shelanski about a proposal by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to exempt itself from the normal rulemaking process when banning the commonly used M855 ball ammunition.

The exemption would allow ATF to circumvent OIRA review.

More than 200 members of Congress have signed a letter to ATF director Todd Jones stating that “under no circumstances should ATF adopt a standard that will ban ammunition that is overwhelmingly used by law-abiding Americans for legitimate purposes.”

“They have said they’re not going to follow the normal process, the most transparent process, they’re going to deviate from that, they’re not going to have public notice and public comment,” Jordan said, asking Shelanski if he was aware of the proposal.

DREAMs of his father…

Via Fox Insider:

Judge Andrew Napolitano sat down with Megyn Kelly to share some insights on two court cases that have made headlines in recent days.

The first involves the murder of a contestant from the reality show “America’s Next Top Model.” Mirjana Puhar, 19, was one of three people found dead in a drug-related killing in Charlotte, North Carolina last week.

Police arrested 19-year-old Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez for the crime. There are reports that Rangel, who was a known gang member, may also be a “DREAMer” who was allowed to stay in the U.S. under the Obama administration’s immigration policies.

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, requesting information about Rangel’s immigration status and whether he was allowed to stay in the country under the President’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

DHS has not responded to the request.

Video From 2007: Hillary Says Secret Emails “Shredded Constitution”


Via Daily Caller:

Hillary Clinton supporters are currently scrambling to minimize the significance of her using a private Gmail address to conduct all of her business as Secretary of State, but in 2007, Clinton herself took a decidedly different tack, saying that secret email accounts “shredded” the very Constitution of the United States.

Clinton, then running for president, was speaking at the Take Back America conference held by the Campaign for America’s Future, and took the Bush administration to task for alleged violations of constitutional governance.

BREAKING: ISIS Bulldozes Ancient Assyrian City Of Nimrud In Iraq…


Islamic cavemen doing what they do best.

Baghdad (AFP) – The Islamic State jihadist group began bulldozing the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in northern Iraq on Thursday, the tourism and antiquities ministry said.

IS “assaulted the historic city of Nimrud and bulldozed it with heavy vehicles,” the ministry said on an official Facebook page, the group’s latest attack on the country’s historical heritage.

Last week, ISIS released a video featuring the destruction of artefacts in the Mosul Museum and statues at the palace at Ninevah. ISIS militants then said that they were planning to move on to Nimrud next.

Liberals Want To Replace Andrew Jackson On $20 Bill With Racist Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger


Maybe they will include some of Sanger’s racist comments on the design?

Via LifeNews:

In Margaret Sanger’s book, “Pivot of Civilization” she describes African-Americans, and immigrants as “human weeds,” “reckless breeders,” and “spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” However, pro-abortion supporters conveniently forget these words, and her crusade against the poor and minorities, when the praise her as an advocate for women.

In her book, “Woman and the New Race,” Sanger argues that because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family. She writes, “[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.” […]

Nevertheless, these outlandish statements haven’t stopped the group Women on 20’s from trying to replace President Andrew Jackson on the twenty-dollar-bill with a picture of Sanger. In their opinion, Sanger’s an American hero whose helped shaped our countries history.

Instead of sharing Sanger’s radical beliefs, Women on 20’s describe her like this:

One of 11 children in a working class family, Margaret Sanger grew up in the time of the Comstock Act, a federal law that defined contraceptives as obscene and criminalized their use and dissemination. While working as a visiting nurse on the Lower East Side of New York City and caring for women who suffered from botched illegal abortions, Sanger decided to fight for legal access to contraceptives for women so they could decide if and when to have children in order to lead healthier, more empowered lives. “Birth control,” she called it.

Obama’s Amnesty Projected To Grant $1.7 BILLION Of Taxpayer Funds To Illegals…



Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama’s November amnesty will give $1.7 billion in taxpayers’ cash to illegal immigrants, according to a congressional study.

The news emerged two days after top Republican leaders overcame GOP opposition to a 2015 budget bill that allows Obama to fund his unpopular amnesty for roughly 5 million illegals.

“The program could cost taxpayers $1.7 billion over 10 years, almost all of it in the first five years,” according to a report by the McClatchy Washington Bureau. The rebates are allowed by the IRS’ interpretation of existing laws governing the Earned Income Tax Credit program, which was designed to subsidize low-wage employment in the United States.

The Joint Committee on Taxation compiled the estimate, which was obtained by McClatchy.

“Those who were working illegally in the United States shouldn’t be rewarded for doing so,” said a statement to McClatchy from Republican Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, who is pushing a bill that would bar tax payments to illegals.

“My proposal would prohibit those granted deferred action from claiming the EITC [payments] for any year they were working without authorization in the United States,” Grassley said.

Hillary Warned Of Sophisticated Cyberattacks Against State Dept In Memoir; Hackers Getting Into “Personal Email Accounts”…

Isn’t this quite ironic?

Via WaPo:

“I myself am not the most tech-savvy person,” Hillary Clinton wrote in “Hard Choices,” her 2014 memoir of her years as secretary of state. “But I understood that new technologies would reshape how we practiced diplomacy and development.”

Clinton is now under fire for using her personal e-mail account nearly exclusively in the course of her official duties as secretary of state, as first reported by the New York Times. In the memoir, she includes a chapter titled “21st-Century Statecraft: Digital Diplomacy in a Networked World,” emphasizing how communications technology can help activists avoid persecution from repressive regimes and spur economic growth in developing nations. However, she also warns of the security risks of electronic communications, the lengths to which State Department communications were a target of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, and how she worked under “strict security precautions” to protect official information:

“We’d also seen the darker side of the digital revolution. The same qualities that made the internet a force for unprecedented progress — in its openness, its leveling effect, its reach and speed — also enabled wrongdoing on an unprecedented scale. It’s well known that the internet is a source for nearly as much misinformation as information, but that’s just the beginning. Terrorists and extremist groups use the internet to incite hate, recruit members, and plot and carry out attacks. Human traffickers lure new victims into modern-day slavery. Child pornographers exploit children. Hackers break into financial institutions, retailers, cell phone networks, and personal email accounts. Criminal gangs as well as nations are building offensive cyber warfare and industrial espionage capabilities. Critical infrastructure like power grids and air traffic control systems are increasingly vulnerable to cyber attack.”

Idiotic Sharpton Activist: Detroit Water “Almost As Bad As Gas Chamber For Jews”…


He fits right in over at NAN.

Via Truth Revolt:

One of Al Sharpton’s activists offered comments in a news conference Monday that has him in some hot water. President of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network Michigan chapter, Rev. Charles Williams, told a press conferences that Flint water is “almost as bad as gas chambers for Jews.”

Williams says, “the city of Flint’s residents are being sold bad water and being told to like it. That’s just as unjust as slavery, that’s just as unjust as genocide, and an injustice is an injustice.”

Rev.Williams was in Flint, Michigan with the National Action Network delivering bottled water to city residents. He described, “the water is slightly discolored it has an odor.”

According to Fox Detroit:

When our reporter Randy Wimbley asked Reverend Williams how he can compare the situation in Flint to Holocaust, he said,”we don’t know the severity of the effects on people who have drunk the water in Flint.”

Report: Harry Reid Secured Billions In Subsidies For Aides’ Donors…


And his office brags about it…

Via WFB:

Corporate donors to a green energy nonprofit operated by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s (D., Nev.) former staffers and a current campaign operative have received billions of dollars in federal loan guarantees and grant money as a result of Reid’s advocacy.

Fulcrum Bioenergy began contributing to the Clean Energy Project (CEP) in 2013. One year later, the Nevada Democrat steered tens of millions of dollars in federal grant money to the California biofuel company.

Fulcrum is one of at least nine corporate donors to the Clean Energy Project (CEP) that have secured federal financing for themselves or a client due in part to Reid’s behind-the-scenes advocacy—activity that watchdogs warn could be construed as unethical.

Rebecca Lambe, Reid’s top political strategist who has been directed by Reid to take the lead in hiring for his 2016 reelection campaign, founded CEP in 2008 and served as its executive director. Reid’s former chief of staff Susan McCue served as CEP’s president at that time. Lambe is now an adviser to CEP, according to her official bio. McCue is a member of its board.

McCue and Lambe also run Senate Majority PAC, a powerhouse Super Pac with close ties to Reid that spent $67 million to elect Senate Democrats last year.

Far from denying a role in steering subsidies to donors to aides’ group, Reid’s office brags about it.

“Senator Reid’s leadership on creating clean energy jobs in Nevada is something we like to talk about at every opportunity and we are glad you have chosen to cover this topic,” Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson said in an emailed statement.

DOJ Report On Sequence Of Events In #Ferguson: Michael Brown Attacked Officer Wilson, No Evidence Of Surrender

Via NY Times:

Officer Wilson Approaches

Michael Brown and Dorian Johnson walked down the middle of Canfield Drive, and Officer Darren Wilson arrived in his police vehicle. Speaking through his window, he told them to move to the sidewalk. He saw that Mr. Brown fit the description of a suspect in a convenience store theft, and he made a call to the dispatcher about the men. He positioned his sport utility vehicle to block them, and also blocked traffic.

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 1.05.05 PM


There was an altercation between Officer Wilson and Mr. Brown, who was standing at the driver’s window. In testimony supported by physical and forensic evidence, Mr. Wilson and some witnesses said that Mr. Brown reached into the vehicle, and punched and grabbed the officer. The two men struggled over Mr. Wilson’s gun. Autopsy results and other evidence confirmed that a shot grazed Mr. Brown in the right hand at close range.

Study: Veggie Consumption Among Students “Significantly” Down Since Mooch’s Healthy Lunch Mandate Went Into Effect

American Grown Mooch

Damn you racist like snotbags!

Via Free Beacon:

A federally funded study on the effects of First Lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch standards found that vegetable consumption has “significantly decreased” since the rules went into effect.

The study, released by the University of Connecticut’s Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, was praised by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as authoritative research that more kids are eating fruit and fewer are throwing away their food.

However, the USDA neglected to mention that the study found that kids are choosing vegetables 16.5 percent less of the time since the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act was enacted in 2012.

“The percentage of students selecting vegetables significantly decreased from 68 [percent] in 2012 to 62 [percent] in 2013,” the study said.

Last year, even fewer students chose vegetables, dropping to 52 percent.

The study’s authors, a group of academics from UConn, Yale University, and Berkeley, rationalized the findings that since fewer kids were choosing vegetables to begin with, less ended up in the trash.

Michael Brown’s Family Announces They Are Filing Civil Suit Against Darren Wilson, City Of Ferguson…


Justice for St. Swisher!

Via The Hill:

The family of Ferguson, Mo. teenager Michael Brown intends to sue Darren Wilson, the police officer who killed him in a shooting that attracted national attention, they said Thursday.

“You will get a more clear, a more accurate picture, of what took place that day,” said Anthony Gray, one of the lawyers who represents the family.

The suit will be filed against Wilson and the city of Ferguson, lawyers said, adding that more parties may be named. It will cover “wrongful death” and may include “other actions.”

Leslie McSpadden and Michael Brown Sr., Michael Brown’s parents, did not take questions. But their attorneys said they believe that they can win a civil case even though federal and state investigators did not bring criminal charges against the officer.

Crash And Burn: Americans Stop Buying Obama’s Class Warfare Schtick, 66% Say His Policies Favor Rich Over Middle Class…

Bummer for Barry.

Via Daily Caller:

A new Pew Research Center survey shows most Americans believe President Barack Obama’s two terms in office have favored the rich, and have not benefited the middle class or the poor.

Those negative attitudes are justified by much negative economic data, and could help GOP candidates in 2015 and 2016 who offer a populist criticism of “crony capitalism.”

The data may also nudge the Democrats’ 2016 candidate to run a populist anti-government campaign, despite Obama’s eight-year tenure.

Sixty-six percent of Pew’s 1,504 respondents say “government economic policies since the recession have helped” wealthy people a “great deal” or a “fair amount.” Only 29 percent said the wealthy were helped “not too much/not at all.”

In contrast, only 26 percent of respondents said middle-class people were helped a great deal or a fair amount.

North Korea Praises “Knife Attack Of Justice” After U.S. Ambassador Stabbed…


Or as Obama calls it, another “random” stabbing.

WASHINGTON – A knife attack on Mark Lippert, U.S. ambassador to South Korea, was applauded by North Korea on Thursday as a “knife attack of justice.”

Mr. Lippert was slashed in the face early Thursday and required two hours of surgery to stitch up his wounds. The regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un added that the attack reflected “anti-U.S. sentiment” in South Korea, CNN reported Thursday.

Kim Ki-Jong, 55, screamed “South and North Korea should be reunified” during the attack and was promptly taken into custody by police. He was previously found guilty in 2010 for throwing concrete at a Japanese ambassador to South Korea and received a suspended two-year prison sentence, CNN reported.

Leftist Bible Daily Kos: ISIS May Have Roots In Climate Change

Screen Shot 2015-03-05 at 7.31.54 AM

Strangely no mention of Islam. Because when my farm fails, it really motivates me to behead people…

Via Daily Kos:

Analysts often point to many factors that contributed to the rise of ISIS. Sunni frustration with the Shi’a-dominated central Iraqi government, the remnants of Al Qaeda in Arabia, and of course the disastrous U.S.-led war just to name a few. But another factor may have played an early role in destabilizing Syria:

We know the basic story in Syria by now: From 2006-2010, an unprecedented drought forced the country from a groundwater-intensive breadbasket of the region to a net food importer. Farmers abandoned their homes—school enrollment in some areas plummeted 80 percent—and flooded Syria’s cities, which were already struggling to sustain an influx of more than 1 million refugees from the conflict in neighboring Iraq. The Syrian government largely ignored these warning signs, helping sow discontent that ultimately spawned violent protests … A preventable drought-triggered humanitarian crisis sparked the 2011 civil war, and eventually, ISIS.

A new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science provides the clearest evidence yet that human-induced global warming made that drought more likely. The study is the first to examine the drought-to-war narrative in quantitative detail in any country, ultimately linking it to climate change.

It’s unfortunate that we in the U.S. have senior policymakers playing rhetorical games with snowballs as the world warms up and populations are displaced. But climate change denial isn’t just bad science, it’s bad business. And since our elected leaders increasingly take marching orders from corporate America instead of we the people, perhaps we can hope global energy companies and related firms, many of which are highly leveraged in the Middle East, will conclude that simply denying climate change is bad for their shareholders.

Oh My: Hillary Clinton’s State Department Forced U.S. Ambassador To Resign For Using Private Email…


Just when you think this can’t get any worse for Pant Suits…

Via Federalist:

Although Hillary Clinton and her allies may be claiming that her private e-mail system is no big deal, Hillary’s State Department actually forced the 2012 resignation of the U.S. ambassador to Kenya in part for setting up an unsanctioned private e-mail system. According to a 2012 report from the State Deptartment’s inspector general, former U.S. ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration set up a private e-mail system for his office in 2011.

The inspector general’s report offered a scathing assessment of Gration’s information security practices — practices that are eerily similar to those undertaken by Clinton while she served as Secretary of State […]

The inspector general’s report specifically noted that Gration violated State Department policy by using a private, unsanctioned e-mail service for official. In its executive summary listing its key judgments against the U.S. ambassador to Kenya who served under Hillary Clinton, the inspector general stated that Gration’s decision to willfully violate departmental information security policies highlighted Gration’s “reluctance to accept clear-cut U.S. Government decisions.” The report claimed that this reluctance to obey governmental security policies was the former ambassador’s “greatest weakness.”

Ferguson Protesters Arrested For Blocking Traffic, Chant Cops Are “Racist”…


Only four? They’re losing their edge.

Via Politico:

On Wednesday night, shortly after the mayor of Ferguson, Missouri, acknowledged the findings of a scathing Justice Department investigation into his city’s policing practices, the Ferguson Police Department arrested four protestors for blocking traffic outside police headquarters.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that two of the arrests were of protestors sitting in the street. A local Democratic committeewoman told the paper that two of those arrested were “legal observers,” though it’s not yet clear if these were the same people.

All four of those arrested are women.

Video footage and photographs shot by journalists at the scene reveal a group of a few dozen protestors peacefully chanting that the Ferguson police department is “racist.”

Eventually a larger group joined hands in the street for a moment of silence honoring the late Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American man who was shot by a Ferguson police officer last August amid disputed circumstances. Protests following last year’s shooting ultimately triggered the Justice Department’s investigation.
