How Tone-Deaf is Hillary Clinton?
Check Out What She’s Doing
On the Fourth of July.

In a couple of days, Americans will fire off fireworks, drink beer, grill meats and celebrate the Fourth of July — America’s birthday. What is the Fourth of July all about? It’s not the date on which the United States actually won its freedom. It’s Independence Day, right? But independence from whom? Fourth of July is the date of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the document in which the United States of America declared itself independent from King George III and the Britain that he ruled. Prior to that, we were British colonies. The Declaration of Independence declares America’s

Media Silent on Allegations that
Cochran Campaign Engaged
in Cash-For-Votes Scheme

Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, is accusing Senator Thad Cochran´s campaign of violating election laws by giving black Democratic voters cash in exchange for votes in the recent GOP runoff. But mainstream media seem uninterested in the story. The only outlet outside of conservative media covering the story is Forbes magazine. On July 1, the magazine explained what the penalties might be if Fielder´s allegations prove true. "If true," Forbes wrote, "such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1;

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has 59,297 employees – 17.3 percent out of 342,089 workers total -- that make $100,000 or more in yearly salary, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Among those employees, 18,709 of them earn a salary of $180,000 or more. An OPM database, FedScope, contains historical data on the federal civilian workforce going back to 1998.

For the Fourth, 5 Songs You
May Not Know are Un-Patriotic
Newsbusters, by Lillian Bozzone    Original Article

What music comes to mind when you think of America and Independence Day? “The Battle Hymn of the Republic?” A John Phillip Souza march? Glenn Miller or the Andrews Sisters? Outside of country, there isn’t much music being made about America anymore. Oh, pop music is still filled with references. America’s favorite problem child, Miley Cyrus, turns up in nearly every 4th of July playlist with “Party In The U.S.A.” and Katy Perry’s “Firework” has also become an Independence Day party anthem. But Cyrus’ song mentions nothing American, except the “fame excess” of Hollywood. “Firework” just uses the 4th of

STATEWIDE- The state is now issuing EBT cards with a photo ID on them. Governor Paul LePage says this will help stop fraud and abuse, but democrats say it´s a waste of time and money. South Portland resident Shelby Macvane relies on her benefits to help pay the bills and take care of her daughter Ella. “I’m in college right now, not working,” she said. “It’s not much, but it helps.” Macvane says she is glad to hear the state is cracking down on fraud by forcing recipients to put their photo on their card. “I have heard a lot of

Federal Headquarters Costing
More To Renovate Than Trump
Tower Cost To Build

A federal consumer protection agency is spending more money per square foot to renovate its Washington D.C. headquarters than it cost to build the Trump World Tower or Las Vegas’s Bellagio Hotel — and the project’s budget continues to grow. That’s the House Financial Services Committee interpretation of a Federal Reserve’s Office of the Inspector General report that found that the cost to renovate the headquarters for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is now estimated to be $215.8 million. That is a significant increase from 2010´s initial cost estimate of $55 million and double last year’s upwardly revised estimate

The Obama administration is hoping that 4,000 Hellfire missiles might turn the tide in Iraq as the Middle Eastern nation takes on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Officials were told by the State Department last week that the Obama administration is trying to complete the sale with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government. Members of the Senate and House foreign relations committees will conduct a review of the planned sale. The process can take up to 40 days, Bloomberg News reported Wednesday. “As a matter of policy, we decline to comment on cases that have not been formally notified to Congress,”

An Oklahoma Congressman who visited an Army base being used to house illegal immigrant children now wonders what the federal government is hiding after he was denied access to the facility. “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” Rep. Jim Bridenstine said in a statement following his visit Tuesday to Ft. Sill Army base near Lawton. The Department of Health and Human Services has set up housing at Ft. Sill and two other military bases – Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio

A month after Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America targeted Target for letting North Texas open-carriers stroll through the toy section with Oreos and AKs, the Big Box has finally released a statement asking shoppers to leave their long guns at home. This morning interim CEO John Mulligan wrote on the company’s blog that the company’s leadership has been wrestling with the “complex issue” for several weeks. And in the end, he writes, the team decided to join Chipotle, Chili’s, Starbucks and other companies by asking folks to shop without displaying their weapons.

Boston - He insists he’s not running for president a third time, but Mitt Romney is campaigning again in New Hampshire. The former Republican presidential nominee is set to endorse Senate candidate Scott Brown on Wednesday, campaigning publicly in New Hampshire for the first time since the early hours of Election Day 2012 as he continues a larger effort to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. The day is supposed to be focused on Brown’s quest to defeat Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen this fall. But Romney’s return to the state where he began and ended his last presidential campaign looms over the Senate

VATICAN CITY — Exorcists now have a legal weapon at their disposal. The Vatican has formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, a group of 250 priests in 30 countries who liberate the faithful from demons. The Vatican newspaper L´Osservatore Romano reported Tuesday that the Vatican´s Congregation for Clergy had approved the organization´s statutes and recognized the group under canon law. More than his predecessors, Pope Francis speaks frequently about the devil, and last year was seen placing his hands on the head of a man purportedly possessed by four demons in what exorcists said was a prayer of liberation

What happens to the illegal immigrants caught crossing the border? That question was answered with the release of this video, captured at the Laredo, Texas, Greyhound bus station over the weekend. Hector Garza, a Border Patrol agent and spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 spoke with Breitbart News about how the federal government is handling the influx of people pouring over the border. “The majority of these people crossed the border illegally and were then dropped off here at the bus station, so they could continue to their final destination, and that destination is an American city near

As part of an effort to stem the flood of children caught trying to cross the nation´s southwest border, President Obama is trying to change a 2008 law that dictates how the federal government handles those immigrant children in order to speed up their deportations. (Snip) The 2008 law, which passed both chambers of Congress by unanimous consent and was signed into law by President George W. Bush, dictates exactly how children caught crossing the border without their parents must be treated. For children coming from "contiguous countries" – in other words, Mexico and Canada – a Border Patrol officer has the authority

Hundreds of Palestinian protesters have been rampaging through the streets of the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shu’afat since early morning Wednesday following news that the burned body of 16 year Palestinian teenager Muhhamad Abu Khdeir had been found in the popular and heavily visited Jerusalem Forest. In addition to firebombing three light rail stations, the rioters burned tires, lobbed Molotov cocktails and pipe bombs, and hurled bricks, glass, stones, and pipe bombs at police and security forces. Police responded with stun grenades to disperse the mobs. They closed off the area to prevent other rioters from escalating the violence. Police are

The city wants to give immigrant entrepreneurs a leg up.

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the Libyan militant charged in the 2012 deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, will remain in a U.S. detention center until his trial. Federal prosecutors made the request, saying they have forensic evidence and statements by Ahmed Abu Khatallah linking him to the terror attacks, in which four Americans were killed at a U.S. outpost in Benghazi. The ruling was made by Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson, who also told Khatallah’s court-appointed lawyers that they reserve the right to revisit the issue. A defense lawyer attempted to dismiss prosecutors’ arguments that his client was armed

NEW YORK — Target is asking its customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it is allowed by law. In a statement posted Wednesday on the retailer´s corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees. "Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said. (Snip) A group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America gathered nearly 400,000 signatures for a petition asking Target to prohibit shoppers from carrying guns

If things were bad between Tea Party activists and the Mississippi Republican establishment before last Tuesday´s Senate primary runoff, it´s about to get a lot uglier. State Senator Chris McDaniel defeated Sen. Thad Cochran in the first round of the Senate GOP primary but then the aging incumbent staged an unexpected surge to win the run-off. Cochran´s surge was fueled by cross-over Democrats voting in the GOP run-off and before the votes were all counted, rumors were rife about walk-around money and other voting irregularities. Vote-buying and news buying Earlier this week, Breitbart News posted a story based on claims of a black

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has reportedly been charged with corruption and influence peddling after being held for questioning for 15 hours. Mr. Sarkozy was held at Nanterre, just outside of Paris, where he was questioned on allegations that he violated campaign finance laws and abused his power to manipulate the legal system. Authorities officially charged him, his lawyer and a senior magistrate early Wednesday morning, according to several news outlets. Prosecutors accused Mr. Sarkozy of appointing a magistrate in Monaco, Gilbert Azibert, to a senior judicial position in exchange for under-the-table information regarding campaign finance probes against him.

A terrible polling season just got humiliating for President Obama. On top of collapsing personal and job approval numbers, and a stunning loss in public confidence, a new Quinnipiac poll shows that the American people now see a president who rode into office on a wave of hope and change as the worst president since World War II. Adding insult to injury, in hindsight, only 38% of voters believe Obama is doing a better job than his 2012 Republican rival Mitt Romney would have. A plurality of 45% believe Romney would be doing a better job than Obama. When asked who the

At a White House reception for LGBT Pride Month, President Obama was praising outgoing executive pastry chef Bill Yosses for his ever so sweet baking skills. Then the president suggested that perhaps Yosses’ pies were so addicting because of a secret ingredient. “I don’t know what he does, whether he puts crack in them, or…,” Obama said. The first lady shot her husband a look, laughed, pursed her lips and shook her head with almost an eye roll. “No, he doesn’t,” she said, head
