The most interesting overnight news is that former French president Nicolas Sarkozy has been “held for questioning” by police investigating allegations that he tried to influence a judge investigating a illegal contributions to his campaign. Under French law a person can be “held” for up to 48 hours without being charged. “This is thought to be the first time a French former head of state has been held in police custody.” (Snip) In today’s Vox, Ezra Klein writes of unease about the provenance of the Clinton stash. ”The problem isn’t that the Clintons are rich, it’s where the money came

Lois Lerner and Fellow IRS Official
Announced Targeting At 2010 Conference
The Same Month Their Emails Went Missing
Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/1/2014 10:42:53 AM     Post Reply
Ex-Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner spoke at a 2010 government conference where Lerner’s underling Nikole Flax announced the new IRS program scrutinizing groups applying for tax-exempt status. Both Lerner and Flax experienced “computer crashes” that led to the permanent deletion of their emails, according to the IRS, which said it cannot hand over their emails to congressional investigators on two House committees. Both Lerner and Flax briefed fellow government bureaucrats on the new targeting at the conference, where Lerner appeared at a workshop called “Will the IRS Come Knocking?” Flax announced the new program scrutinizing groups at the Washington Non-Profit Legal

Rep. Luis Gutierrez: Republicans

A small contingent of Republicans are letting intraparty threats and parochial viewpoints hold up immigration reform and damage their national brand, Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez said Tuesday. Mr. Gutierrez of Illinois said he never left the table when House Republicans demurred on an immediate path to citizenship or comprehensive approach to dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants in America. “Every time we said yes, they found a way to say no,” Mr. Gutierrez told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, has signaled his caucus will not move on comprehensive immigration reform this year — midterm elections are in

CARSON CITY, Nev.— Nearly 49,000 Nevada residents have taken written tests since January to obtain state driver authorization cards, and just under 16,400 people have gotten the documents as of June 11, state Department of Motor Vehicles officials said Monday. The cards are available under a new law that made Nevada the 11th state to offer driving privileges to people in the country illegally. Backers say the cards allow immigrants to take a driving test, get insurance and drive legally. Almost 6,700 people have been given authorization card instruction permits, putting the number of people eligible to drive with motorist

Liberal Professor Gives 4 Reasons
Obama Admin ‘Probably Doesn’t

Even George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley knows it hasn’t been a great week for the President. In an interview with CNN, the liberal professor lists the reasons why Obama would rather just stay in bed this week: 1. The administration was found to be in violation of the 4th Amendment and privacy when it was discovered that the National Security Agency had been compiling metadata records for all telephone communications in the United States. 2. Obama was found in violation of separation of powers when he made unconstitutional recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board. The Supreme

Worse than Nixon? Obama White House
accused of hiding public information

Though President Obama vowed to run the most transparent administration in history, his White House has quietly empowered itself to censor or delay the release of information in ways that not even Richard Nixon envisioned during the Watergate scandal, according to federal workers on the front lines of processing open records requests. The workers, who spoke to The Washington Times only on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal, said that an April 15, 2009, memo from White House Counsel Gregory Craig to all federal agencies has slowed, and in some cases nixed, the public release of government documents that

Justice Ginsburg’s Eight Worst

Mother Jones’s list of the “eight best lines” from her dissent seems to be pretty popular on the Left, judging from social media. They may indeed be her best lines, but they’re not very good. Others (such as Jonathan Keim) have already tackled some of them, but here they are in the same order MJ presents them.

In Monica Lewinsky’s first television interview in ten years, the former White House intern will open up about going from “a virgin to humiliation” to “the most humiliated woman in the world.” In clips of her interview with National Geographic obtained by the TODAY show, the former White House intern recalls her experiences after the public release of the Starr report. “That was one of the worst days of my life,” Lewinsky said. “I was a virgin to humiliation of that level, until that day.”

Some Thoughts on Hobby Lobby
National Revew, by Yuval Levin    Original Article
Posted By: mitzi- 7/1/2014 10:06:54 AM     Post Reply
The general sense about the Hobby Lobby decision handed down yesterday, very much suggested by the majority opinion itself, is that the ruling is highly significant for the particular matter at hand (the fate of the HHS mandate) but of limited significance for larger and broader questions beyond. It seems to me, however, that roughly the opposite may be the case. (snip) And Justice Ginsburg’s attempt to distinguish between profit-seeking and non-profit corporations on this front, made necessary by the fact that the administration did recognize the religious-liberty claims of some corporations and not others in this case, was the

This Barack Obama is a real piece of work. As the nation´s alleged leader, he manufactures crises, like a good Alinsky Acolyte would. As the commander-in-chief of the United States, he ignores problems, allowing them to fester until they become serial crises that he then employs to distract a lazy media and public attention from other crises. It´s the M.O. of B.O.. And, folks, it doesn´t look to get any better in the 933 endless days left. Let us count the crises:

Congress Quietly Deletes a Key
Disclosure of Free Trips Lawmakers Take

It´s going to be a little more difficult to ferret out which members of Congress are lavished with all-expenses-paid trips around the world after the House has quietly stripped away the requirement that such privately sponsored travel be included on lawmakers´ annual financial-disclosure forms. The move, made behind closed doors and without a public announcement by the House Ethics Committee, reverses more than three decades of precedent. Gifts of free travel to lawmakers have appeared on the yearly financial form dating back its creation in the late 1970s, after the Watergate scandal. National Journal uncovered the deleted disclosure requirement when analyzing

If you’re an employer with more than 50 workers, you must comply with the employer mandate to offer health insurance starting Jan. 1, 2015 — unless you’re a medium-sized employer with 50 to 99 employees, in which case the mandate is delayed a year. To avoid penalties, you must offer coverage to full-time employees; that is, those who work at least 30 hours a week or 130 hours a month — but you can impose a 90-day waiting period before starting coverage. For seasonal workers, you can decide at the beginning of each month who among your workers will be

He actually said this: the system “is so broken” that “folks don’t know what the rules are." He was referring to the children’s crusade on our borders that has caused chaos as tens of thousands of people try to illegally enter America - a crisis he has created by lax, or no-enforcement, of our immigration laws and by issuing executive orders that basically re-created the Dream Act - a law that could not pass Congress. But the statement was just stunning in its disingenuousness and yet another example of the most hypocritical president in American history. Does anyone know what the rules of

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

The woman who police say viciously attacked a New Jersey mother in front of her two-year-old son has turned herself into authorities. Latia Harris, 25, surrendered to police on Monday night in relation to last week´s brutal that was captured on video. Authorities say they were ´close to capturing´ the fugitive over the weekend in Philadelphia. Harris faces two counts of aggravated assault and two counts of making terroristic threats. The 4´9" tall, 100 pound Ferreira says the attack left her with a broken nose and a mild concussion. Police say Harris is the attacker seen in the video wearing a red McDonald´s

The same failure-to-thrive cultural ennui gripping Italy, Japan, and a host of other “advanced countries” is evident among Americans of European descent. Katherine Peralta writes in US News: For the second year in a row, the number of non-Hispanic white deaths in 2013 outweighed the number of white births, signaling an increasingly older and diversified American public.

Fox’s Megyn Kelly passionately defended religious liberty on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday after the Supreme Court sided in favor of Hobby Lobby in a 5-4 decision. O’Reilly played a clip of Sandra Fluke on Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show Monday night, where Fluke described the decision as an attempt to limit women’s access to health care, saying “What this is really about at its base is trying to figure out as many ways as possible to limit women’s access to reproductive healthcare.” Kelly wasted no time in launching into an explanation of the ridiculousness of Flukes allegation. “It hurts, it hurts,

Mark Mayfield´s family plans to sue or bring charges against the city of Madison, its police department or "anyone responsible" after Mayfield´s apparent suicide Friday. Mayfield´s relatives, already angered over his arrest in May in the U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran photo scandal, say Madison police were trespassing when they showed up at his home in Ridgeland after he apparently shot himself. They say Mayfield´s arrest was politically motivated by supporters of Cochran and drove him to suicide. "The funeral is (Tuesday), but the first of next week, we will be suing the city of Madison," said Mayfield´s nephew, Ridgeland Alderman Wesley Hamlin.

One of the chief concerns of America’s Founders in the early days of the Republic was the possibility that foreigners would usurp American political power. As Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist No. 68, “[the] most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally be expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain improper [ascendancy] in our councils.” The possibility that foreigners might gain political power and subvert traditional American values is even more acute in today’s climate of mass illegal immigration.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had a bit of a weird moment at the White House tonight during an LGBT reception when the president praised the exquisite work of the White House Executive Pastry Chef and joked if he puts crack in them. A crack joke at the White House. Bet you never saw that coming. The Obamas said they were sad to see Bill Yosses leave the White House.

Rick Perry Or Ted Cruz For 2016?

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate. He fires up crowds unlike any other politician today, and the power of motivating voters and volunteers should not be underestimated. But will he run in 2016? The signs point to yes. One of his staffers left his office to start a committee to draft him into running. He has visited the early states and spent many weekends during his first 18 months in office raising

The United States fears that two of al-Qaeda´s most deadly international offshoots are plotting to bring down a commercial airliner with the help of European jihadists returning from Syria. The White House is debating asking its allies to step up airport security in response to the new threat from the terror group´s Syrian and Yemeni branches, meaning British travellers could face intensified screenings. The American plan, reported by ABC News, could call for an influx of armed US air marshals on British flights or an increase in searches of passengers headed to the US.

Last week, John Kerry said that Russia needed to pull back in Ukraine in a matter of "hours, literally." But more than 100 hours later, Russia has done no such thing. The secretary of State delivered the order to de-escalate within hours, paired with a warning of future U.S. action, on Thursday in Paris, after a meeting with France´s foreign minister. "We are in full agreement that it is critical for Russia to show in the next hours, literally, that they are moving to help disarm the separatists, to encourage them to disarm, to call on them to lay down their weapons

Hillary Clinton needs a conscience transplant, and she needs it now. Her book tour is in a shambles, the fate of her $14 million advance from her publisher is marooned somewhere in limbo. She’s under 50 percent approval for the first time in the presidential polling for 2016, and, scariest of all, she’s having to call on Bubba for help. She knows better than to become merely “a wife of,” but 2014 is beginning to smell like 2008, and she’s Miss Inevitability once more. This is dj vu all over again.
