Obama rejects finding that he
broke the law in Bergdahl swap
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/22/2014 7:17:25 PM     Post Reply
The White House on Friday rejected findings by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) that President Obama broke the law when he swapped Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders from Guantánamo Bay. "We strongly disagree with GAO´s conclusion, and we reject the implication that the administration acted unlawfully," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said. "The president has the constitutional responsibility to protect the lives of Americans abroad, and specifically to protect U.S. servicemembers." The GAO report, released Thursday, said the Pentagon violated a law that requires the administration to inform Congress at least 30 days before any prisoner

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) issued a subpoena Friday for White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, arguing he has not cooperated with a GOP probe of President Obama´s political office. Issa accused McDonough in a letter of failing to accept investigators´ "good faith" effort to address concerns about revealing privileged communications between Obama and his staff. "The White House has acknowledged that the dialogue has been constructive and that progress has been made. Unfortunately, these characterizations represent the total sum of what the White House has provided," Issa wrote

Brigitte Bardot, the 1960s icon of liberated, bikini-clad French womanhood, has described the far-right leader Marine Le Pen as "the Joan of Arc of the 21st century" in an interview with Paris-Match. [Snip] "I am a native Frenchwoman and proud of it," Bardot said. "I mourn the fact that my beautiful country has deteriorated in every way. It´s criminal to submit to these depths."

James Foley was singled out for the harshest treatment by his ISIS captors after they found pictures of his brother who serves in the U.S. Air Force on his laptop computer, fellow prisoners said on Thursday. He was regularly the victim of mock executions including once when he was ´crucified against a wall,´ said French journalist Didier Francois. Francois, 53, told Europe 1 Radio that the captors gave Foley rougher treatment from the rest of them because they discovered a picture of John Foley — the hostage´s 35-year-old officer brother — on his computer.

Democratic House Candidate John Foust attacked his female Republican opponent Barbara Comstock on Thursday, saying, “I don’t think she’s even had a real job.” “In her mind [creating jobs] means giving tax benefits to special interests and the super wealthy,” Foust said at an event in Leesburg, Va. “I don’t think she’s even had a real job.” The Comstock campaign pushed back on Foust’s “bizarre and sexist attack,” calling his comments offensive to working women, federal employees, and stay at home moms.

As of right now the support page for Police Officer Darren Wilson has raised over $190,000 and growing. People around the nation are awake to the propaganda within the culture of rabid hate within the professional grievance industry. People like Daryl Parks, Benjamin Crump and Al Sharpton can only exist within a system that allows them to rage against people for fallacious reasons. The constructs of hate are always manipulated by people who derive financial benefit and power from the targeting it creates as a specific consequence. Their latest chosen target is Police Officer Darren Wilson. But something is different this time,

In a wide-ranging interview with The Huffington Post´s Howard Fineman, Glenn Beck took the opportunity to again blast conservatives critical of his decision to greet the recent wave of underage illegal immigrants with toys and hot meals. "I don´t understand those who cannot see the plight of children," Beck told HuffPo. The border issue is one example. Beck took heat from fellow conservatives for his decision to distribute large amounts of relief supplies through churches and other organizations in McAllen, Texas, to undocumented children caught at the southern border. Sen. Cruz was at his side. Beck´s view is that the law says

A top aide to Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul rebutted a charge on Friday from the Democratic National Committee that the Republican senator was out-of-line to criticize President Barack Obama’s immigration policies while out of the country this week. “Senator Paul did in Guatemala what he does every day in the United States — speak the truth,” Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Paul, said in an email to The Daily Caller. “If the DNC and the White House don’t see that their shredding of the Constitution and abdication of responsibility for securing our border is the problem, they are the

White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz was asked at today’s press briefing why the administration was unwilling to negotiate with terrorists in James Foley’s case, yet traded five Taliban for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. “I think, again, what the president made clear at the time of the Guantanamo transfer was that his commitment to the men and women that serve overseas is a bedrock one, that we will leave no man or woman behind. That’s what he was keeping faith with, and that’s something that’s unshakeable for him,” Schultz said. “As we’ve made previously clear, the administration

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, apologized today for Asian-themed jokes he made while speaking to the Asian Chamber of Commerce in Las Vegas on Thursday night. “My comments were in extremely poor taste and I apologize. Sometimes I say the wrong thing,” Reid said in his brief statement. Reid’s remarks were caught on tape and posted to the Internet by the Republican opposition group America Rising. While speaking to the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Reid said, “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.” The Senate Majority leader then went

What´s A Grand Jury? How Will
It Work In The Ferguson Case?

The purpose of a grand jury, in theory, is to protect citizens against unfair and unwarranted prosecutions by the government. In medieval England, it was viewed as a protection against the Crown. Colonists found the institution protected them against unfair English prosecutions and included the right to a grand jury in the Fifth Amendment. But in practice, the prosecutor who runs the grand jury has a great deal of influence in orchestrating the outcome. (Snip)The grand jury that was to begin hearing evidence in the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is a St. Louis County

Leo DiCaprio Declares War on

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has declared war on Western industrial civilisation by funding and narrating a series of short eco documentaries urging us all to leave fossil fuels in the ground, cripple our economies with carbon taxes and embrace bird-frying, bat-chomping renewable technologies such as solar and wind. The first film in the series on Carbon – co-written by liberal activist cum talk radio host Thom Hartmann – is riddled with basic errors, extremely dubious propaganda claims, and flagrant politicking on behalf of the more left-wing elements in the Obama administration. But DiCaprio may well have been unable to afford a

Within the span of a few months in 1970, the short-lived film genre known as the "concert/documentary movie" reached its apogee with three releases that each marked a turning point in artistic evolution. "Let It Be" was the final major appearance of the Beatles; "Woodstock," the first big blockbuster concert movie—boasting one classic rock band after another—amounted to the zenith of the form, still yet to be surpassed. But "Elvis: That´s the Way It Is" was something else entirely: It captured the King of Rock ´n´ Roll at the very moment he was reclaiming his throne and beginning a new

The Pentagon on Friday called a Chinese jet’s encounter with a U.S. anti-submarine warfare aircraft an “aggressive” and “dangerous” act and said it has protested the action with Beijing. Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters that the incident took place Tuesday in international airspace. “We have registered our strong concerns to the Chinese about the unsafe and unprofessional intercept, which posed a risk to the safety and the well-being of the air crew and was inconsistent with customary international law,” Kirby said, adding that the incident was “very, very close, very dangerous.” “Also—and we’ve made this clear—that it undermines efforts

Eric Holder’s ´Fair´
Investigation in Ferguson?

Attorney General Eric Holder travelled to Ferguson, Missouri, Wednesday to personally intervene in the investigation of the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unprecedented and highly questionable move. In a column published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Holder claimed that the Justice Department would conduct an investigation that would be “fair” and “independent.” But given Holder’s biased views on race and the history of his tenure at DOJ that we outline in our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” we have serious doubts that his department can conduct an impartial investigation. This is particularly true given the hostility

President Barack Obama´s unwillingness to give up golf while the world churns and burns finally caught the attention of the late night crowd. Jimmy Fallon mocked Obama´s golf obsession on Thursday´s The Tonight Show, mixing humor with the serious notion that the president should put down the golf clubs and get back to work. The president isn´t really helping himself by going on vacation. In fact, I saw that President Obama played the eighth round of golf of his vacation today. I mean, he´s played so much golf, I guess he´s getting pretty good, but he´s still not quite at

The key witness in the shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was arrested for lying to cops in 2011 and currently has an outstanding arrest warrant. Dorian Johnson, 22, was arrested by police at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri, where he attended college for two years.

School children in Elyria, Ohio are mourning the demise of a 40-year tradition - the loss of their beloved pink cookie. The fabled cookie, long served in local school cafeterias, was done in by a pound of butter, six cups of powdered sugar and the Obama administration´s food police. "It no longer meets the national school lunch program guidelines for snacks," said Amy Higgins, the spokesperson for Elyria City Schools. "It has too many calories." The USDA "Smart Snacks in School" standards mandate that all snacks must contain less than 200 calories.
