The Obama administration treats investigative journalists and their sources like “enemies of the state,” a former CBS News reporter who accuses the government of spying on her told a Senate panel Thursday. “The job of getting at the truth has never been more difficult,” Sheryl Attkisson testified at the Senate confirmation hearing for Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch. She said the DOJ’s surveillance of journalists could do “long-term damage to a supposedly free press” and urged Lynch to chart a new course. Attkisson is one of several reporters the Justice Department has been accused of spying on. She was among a number of

Unvaccinated teenagers have been sent home from school for as long as three weeks. Dozens of babies who may have been exposed to measles have been placed in quarantine. One in four of the more than 73 Californians infected has required hospitalization. (Snip)Enough. It´s time to ensure that more Californians are vaccinated.The outbreak this winter has illustrated quickly and forcefully how a highly contagious disease can spread when the vaccination rate falls below the level needed for "herd immunity." Herd immunity means that so many people are immune that the chance of outbreak is low, which protects the few who

Phoenix, Ariz. — About 1,000 people in Arizona near the site of Super Bowl XLIX have recently been exposed to measles, according to health officials. KIRO 7 reports doctors are concerned that the measles outbreak–which began at Disneyland–could potentially expose a large percentage of the million patrons headed to the festivities in Phoenix for Sunday’s game. There are presently 200 children being monitored at a Phoneix-area urgent care center. Doctors say that if you are not vaccinated, you are not safe in the greater Phoenix area. In fact, those who haven’t been vaccinated are being asked not to go out



Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch:
‘Tough On Crime’ Means Tough On Blacks

President Obama’s Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch said that being “tough on crime” actually means being tough on black people. Lynch, currently in Senate confirmation hearings to replace her sorority sister’s husband Eric Holder, expressed some bold racial views at a September 2007 panel at Duke University called “The Court of Public Opinion: The Practice & Ethics of Trying Cases In The Media,” which was convened after the Duke lacrosse rape case, in which three Duke players were falsely accused of sexual assault. “I guess where you stand depends on where you sit — but even with the statements as a DA

Former President Bill Clinton was on Thursday’s episode of the Rachael Ray Show, where he helped Ray cook up some black bean and butternut chili. Here’s what we learned: Clinton loves chili. He isn’t picking sides, but only rooting for a good game during Sunday’s Super Bowl. He loves House of Cards. Don’t ever accuse Clinton of being so rich that he pays people to open his bottles of beer. “When is the last time you even opened your own beer?” Ray asked when she needed a bottle to put in the chili. “Can you even remember? People probably do

Feinstein: GOP Using Lynch Hearing
Just to Complain About Obama, Holder

Senator Dianne Feinstein today scolded Republican colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee by using the hearing for potential next attorney general Loretta Lynch as another forum to just complain about President Obama and Eric Holder. Witnesses called by the GOP include Sharyl Attkisson, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke (a recurring guest on Fox News who doesn’t care for Holder), and Catherine Engelbrecht, the head of True the Vote, one of the groups targeted by the IRS. Republicans would argue the idea behind calling these witnesses is to go over what the Department of Justice has done under Holder and see what Lynch

Former President Bill Clinton joked during a taped interview with celebrity cook Rachael Ray that he would likely change his name to Adam if his wife and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were to win the White House. Why Adam? He’s the original first man, The Hill reported. Mr. Clinton also said the name could then serve for all the men whose wives, in future years, might become president — and wondered aloud about the scenario of a gay couple assuming the top executive spots, The Hill reported. “Let’s say if a woman became president, we could — I

Los Angeles Police Department is under fire for giving an escort to a convicted Mexican Mafia hit man so he could speak to a business leaders´ conference. Rene Enriquez, 52, known as ´The Boxer´, was a leader in one of the US´s most notorious and violent gangs, the Mexican Mafia, and is currently serving two life sentences for murder. But yesterday he was given a police escort from prison to downtown Los Angeles to address a group of local police chiefs and wealthy business leaders. Enriquez was speaking to around 125 people about the inner-workings of the criminal enterprise. Formed in the Californian prison

After beating MSNBC’s Morning Joe in the ratings for several months straight, CNN took out a full-page ad in today’s New York Times touting its morning shows New Day (CNN) and Morning Express (HLN), while poking fun at its rival network. “Sorry, Joe,” the ad blares. “While you were leaning forward, we were moving ahead!” it continues, in reference to MSNBC’s “Lean Forward” motto. As the ad boasts, New Day has beaten Joe for four straight months in total viewership, and seven straight months in the key 25-54 demo. HLN’s Morning Express has also overtaken Joe, beating the MSNBC show

The head of the Drug Enforcement Agency announced yesterday that the agency had abandoned plans to use surveillance cameras to photograph license plates appearing in the vicinity of gun shows. DEA Administrator Michelle Leonhart said in a statement that the proposal memorialized in an employee’s email was only a suggestion, never authorized by her agency and never put into action. The AP also learned that the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives did not authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan. Are these the kinds of ideas we are paying tax dollars for? I’m glad this wasn’t “approved” but

WASHINGTON- Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Senate´s most enthusiastic tweeter, is steering the venerable Judiciary Committee into a brave new world. The six-term Iowa Republican, 81, debuted as chairman Wednesday at the confirmation hearings on President Barack Obama´s pick for attorney general, Loretta Lynch. Meanwhile, Grassley reported live from the podium: The hearing was "moving right along," Grassley tweeted just before lunch. "Is that against the rules?" he asked later with a grin. The committee rules these days are largely up to Grassley, the first nonlawyer to occupy the chairmanship of a panel that, among other responsibilities, considers the president´s nominees

Obama administration Muslim adviser Mohamed Elibiary is no stranger to regular PJ Media readers. In September, Elibiary was unceremoniously removed from his fellowship position with the Department of Homeland Security, which he tried to spin as a “resignation,” but letters sent to members of Congress by DHS officials indicated he would not be reappointed. Undoubtedly, one of the chief reasons for DHS cutting ties with Elibiary was a long string of extremist statements he had been making on Twitter, including talking about the inevitability of the return of an ISIS-style caliphate — tweets that were subsequently used by ISIS supporters for recruiting

Sen. Lindsey Graham took his latest step toward a potential 2016 presidential run Thursday, launching a new exploratory committee to help him “test the waters” and decide whether to make the jump into the GOP primaries. The South Carolina Republican made the announcement official on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday morning. “Well, I’m going to take a look at the presidential primary on the Republican side. We’ll have an organization up and running today called, Security Through Strength, and this organization will allow people to donate money and their time and resources to see if there is a pathway forward for me,” Graham told

A Senate hearing opened this morning with Code Pink protesters trying to arrest former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger for “war crimes.” The protesters, bearing signs reading “Kissinger War Criminal” and “Cambodia,” rushed up behind the 91-year-old diplomat at the witness table of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which was holding a hearing on global challenges and the U.S. national security strategy. Also testifying were 94-year-old former Secretary of State George P. Shultz and 77-year-old former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) said he would call recess until Capitol Police removed Code Pink from the room. “I’ve been a member of

President Obama on Thursday will call on congressional Republicans to approve a “clean” funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security that preserves his executive actions on limiting deportations. During a visit to the House Democratic retreat, the president is expected to seize on a suggestion from some Republicans that they allow funding for the department to lapse if they are unable to secure concessions. “The president will join the Democrats in Congress in vehemently opposing that dangerous view and calling for a clean funding bill to ensure we are funding our national security priorities in the face of cybersecurity

The Obama administration’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is threatening banks to be silent about the administration’s new programs supervising and investigating private bank account holders. A shocking bulletin that CFPB issued to banks, which was obtained by The Daily Caller, was sent around this week in the midst of controversy regarding the administration’s Operation Choke Point program, by which the administration pressures banks to cut off accounts for supposedly suspicious businesses, including gun dealers. Operation Choke Point’s anti-gun mission was recently confirmed in a series of audiotapes published by the US Consumer Coalition, in which a bank teller explained to

Oddly enough there’s a tenuous cultural connection between the long ago days of the Philippine anti-Marcos underground and Auschwitz. Back in the day I went to see Jose Diokno about getting someone in trouble with the regime off the hook. Martial law was still in force and Diokno’s willingness to meet with a nobody from the shadows under doubtful circumstances says a lot about his willingness to run risk for the cause, especially since he himself had just been released from two years in prison. I should explain to my readers and anyone born in the last 30 years, that

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch at a confirmation hearing today that the fact that, in support of Planned Parenthood, she had advocated for partial-birth abortion did not "disqualify" her from serving as attorney general of the United States. "In 2006, you signed an amicus brief supporting Planned Parenthood´s opposition to partial-birth abortion ban; is that correct?" said Graham at Lynch´s confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee. "Yes," said Lynch, "I was one of a number of former Department of Justice officials [who signed it]." "Although, the amicus brief that we signed

Aired-out uproariously on “Saturday Night Live,” “Deflategate” has been a national fixation since word broke that the New England Patriots used underinflated footballs in their Super Bowl-berth-clinching victory over Indianapolis. The alleged-cheating controversy has even pumped up the loveability of the oft-despised Seattle Seahawks. However, Think Again if you believe Deflategate is merely hot air. Though overblown, Americans’ disquiet reflects our fairness instinct and commitment to equality of opportunity — the ideal that all competitors in the race of life, no matter their status, can succeed on a level playing field. Sensing a slanted NFL field, Seahawk Richard Sherman questioned

Former successful cattle-futures investor, first lady, senator, unsuccessful presidential candidate, secretary of State and presumable repeat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has reportedly sent word to the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi that she is eager to testify. That may be another statement she comes to regret, along with her now infamous "What difference at this point does it make" outburst before a congressional committee. Clinton is following standard political protocol for damage control: Appear up front and get the bad news, all of it, over with as quickly as possible. Better 2015 than 2016. But there´s a problem.

In an effort to put an end to Operation Choke Point — a financial task force that was created by the Obama administration to “choke out” businesses it finds objectionable like gun shops — the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. issued a letter Wednesday saying all banks should examine their customer relationships on a case-by-case basis and not by industry operational risk. The government agency followed the action with a memorandum to its supervisory staff requiring examiners put in writing their recommendation to terminate an account, which the financial institution must review before the account is ended.

We’ll start off the day with some video goodness for you. As previously noted, confirmation hearings for Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to replace Eric Holder, got underway this week. One of her inquisitors was Senator Ted Cruz (R – Tex) who had plenty of questions, many related to the performance of the current Attorney General and how her approach might differ, if at all. The conversation would, in my opinion, be described as polite and professional, while still being confrontational. This first section (which starts in the first couple of minutes in the video below) deals with the limits

He menaced cops with a machete — and the city paid him for it. A Brooklyn thug who was shot by officers while waving an 18-inch blade at them and later sued the department for $3 million got a $5,000 settlement from the city — even though his own attorney said the shooting was probably justified. Ruhim Ullah, 24, had pleaded guilty to menacing a police officer after the 2010 confrontation, in which he was shot once in the leg by a cop trying to stop him from attacking ­officers with the machete, according to his lawyer.

The good news: The discomfort over the embargo of Cuba has led to a good bargaining position in talks with the US. The bad news: Raul Castro’s the one that thinks so. Far from being grateful for the diplomatic overture from Barack Obama, Castro wants the US to pay reparations for the economic damage that Castro says the embargo caused, plus the immediate return of control over Guantanamo Bay, as the opening ante for normalizing relations: Cuban President Raul Castro demanded on Wednesday that the United States return the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, lift the half-century trade embargo on
