High-flying Holder: Report

WASHINGTON – Two high-tech luxury jets that the FBI convinced Congress were needed for the fight against global terrorism have instead been used to ferry around Attorney General Eric Holder and his predecessors, as well as FBI Director Robert Mueller, according to a government report released Thursday. Those officials -- which included Holder and Mueller, as well as former Attorneys General Michael Mukasey and Alberto Gonzales -- racked up nearly 700 "nonmission" trips between 2007 and 2011, at a cost of $11.4 million, according to the Government Accountability Office. Those officials are required to use government aircraft,

This is not a crime.
He is black.
Therefore he is entitled.
He has the goods on John Roberts. He has the goods on the RINOs. He runs the Government from behind his shield (Zero).
So forget it.
Holder has immunity (impunity?).
Holder is the new J. Edgar Hoover.

It never freakin´ stops. I had an email recently, didn´t check it thru Snopes (liberals!) that said Plugs Biden rode an airplane back and forth to work from Delaware, and on Saturdays and Sundays would come back to DC to play golf with Preezy Down Low. Cost of millions.

Mark Levin is just now talking about how 716 BILLION was shifted from Medicare to Obamacare in mid-February, half coming from the Medicare Advantage program. John Fund has an article about it. He (Levin) says people that take from funds that we pay into and move it to others who don´t pay a penny would be in jail if they were in the private sector. He´s a criminal.

Argentina is preparing a battery of instruments to attack the Falklands fisheries and involved fishing companies with the purpose of ´strangling the economy´ of the Islands thus forcing the UK to sit and dialogue on South Atlantic Islands sovereignty, according to a piece by La Nacion columnist Martín Dinatale. “Under these premises the Foreign ministry is working on the regulation of the fisheries bill to apply hefty fines to those companies which benefit from fishing simultaneously in the ´Argentine Sea´ as in South Atlantic waters under dispute with the UK”, writes Dinatale who reveals that the administration of President Cristina

Venuzuela, a country of 30 million, has been in a state of economic bedlam since strongman socialist Hugo Chávez succumbed to cancer a year ago. His successor, former vice president and bus driver Nicolas Maduro, has a penchant for sub sandwiches and the teachings of an Indian spiritual guru with an afro. The stock market is up 483 percent in the past year, largely because people holding depreciating Venezuelan bolivars seek any store of value and traders bet on the end of Chavismo and/or a return to some semblance of capitalistic rule of law. The black market, meanwhile, seems straight out

Is Argentina trying out the
5-point economy wrecking plan?

We were struck by a strange proposal this week. A top Argentine leader says his country should move the national capital from Buenos Aires in the east, facing the Atlantic, to a new city up in the north, closer to the Pacific. This would be an immense change – akin to Brazil moving the capital to Brasilia. It would be a shame to see Buenos Aires abandoned. But the idea that Argentina needs some shaking up is exactly right. A few weeks ago, we ran a report titled “How To Ruin Your Economy.” In five easy steps, it showed how a

NEW YORK – Around 5,000 undocumented students graduate annually from New York public schools but many do not go to college because they haven’t the money to enroll, even though the state legislature passed a bill providing them with access to state financial aid. A group of “dreamers,” as they are known, called on Gov.

Richard Blanco, an opposition legislator and deputy president of opposition Alianza Bravo Pueblo party, stressed that the number of violent deaths in Venezuela has skyrocketed by 483% since Chavezism took office in 1998. He claimed that high crime rates have been recorded even though Chavezism has implemented 22 different security plans and changed the minister of the interior and justice 12 times. The politician explained that some 4,000-5,000 people died annually in the country as a result of violence at the time Chavezism took office. He underlined that "today, the number of homicides in the country stands at some 25,000 annually. This

Recent attacks on Uber cars in Paris provide more anecdotal evidence that the French hate foreign competition and especially U.S. tech companies. Striking Paris taxi drivers attacked and vandalized at least a dozen cars booked through Uber, Bloomberg Businessweek and Rude Baguette reported Monday. Cab drivers are protesting increased competition from private car services. In a statement, San Francisco-based Uber strongly condemned the violence against its partner drivers and their cars. The attacks included broken windows, slashed tires, eggings and assaulted drivers. Uber makes a mobile app that connects passengers with drivers of vehicles for hire and ridesharing services.

The Five Worst Things About Ecuador

Observers wondering who would assume the mantle of Hugo Chavez as Latin America’s fiery, anti-American strong man did not have to wait long. That man is Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa. Correa won a second term last February and promised to continue his “citizens’ revolution.” However, his record looks different beyond the rhetoric. More than half of Ecuador’s 15 million people still live in poverty. Crime rates remain high. And journalists, members of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and indigenous inhabitants are routinely fined and arrested. As the world awaits the birth of true democracy and freedom in Ecuador, the Washington Free Beacon compiled the five

Months and months ago, when Barack Obama could be bothered to say anything at all about the attacks in Ben-ghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, the president promised to bring the perpetrators to justice. That was before White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed the attacks as something that “happened a long time ago.” It’s been 16 months. The U.S. government has neither captured nor killed a single participant in those attacks, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead. Why?

Movie producer Harvey Weinstein announced for the first time on Howard Stern’s radio show that he is making a full feature drama to try to destroy the National Rifle Association. Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” Mr. Weinstein then revealed his secret project about the gun rights group. “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,”

President Obama has been judged to be ´chronically incapable´ of conducting a coherent military strategy and ´has no sense of what he wants to do in the world´, according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan - one of the UK´s most respected and senior military advisers.

Shocking images depicting U.S. soldiers burning the bodies of what appear to be Iraqi insurgents, have emerged today. The explosive photographs, reportedly taken in Fallujah in 2004, have already sparked a Marine Corps investigation, but many of the 41 gag-inducing shots are just too grisly to publish. Two pictures show a Marine pouring what looks like gasoline on the remains of enemy soldiers and another two images appear to show the remains go up in flames. Two more capture the horrifically charred bodies. The sick snaps were exclusively obtained by TMZ, who turned them over to the Pentagon last week, triggering the

Washington´s political reporters, in lightning knee-jerk speed, have embraced President Obama´s Robin Hood war on “income inequality,” the latest example of the president´s success in using the bully pulpit to steer attention to his new populist campaign. The issue took center stage Wednesday during a briefing from the nonpartisan Business Roundtable meant to focus on the group´s agenda to push economic growth from 2 percent to 4 percent, but instead saw several reporters pestering the group´s president and chairman about the minimum wage and income distribution.

T ea Party activists and the conservative groups that have enforced their agenda are vehemently opposed to the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through September. On Wednesday evening, the House passed the bill anyway, 359 to 67, with plenty of votes to spare. Sixty-four of those no votes were from conservative Republicans. But it seems pretty clear from the vote tally that Tea Party–style "ideological purity has lost its power," says Jonathan Weisman in The New York Times.

A multi-billion-dollar high-speed train network linking America with Mexico moved a step closer as officials from both sides of the border thrashed out details. The proposed 300 mile route would link San Antonio, Texas, to Monterrey, Mexico - slashing the current journey time from five hours by car to under two hours. Advocates say the project, which would be the first high-speed train line in North America and is set to be completed by 2018, will provide huge economic boost to regions in both nations.

House Republican leaders are preparing for the first time to endorse legal status for many of the 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally, a step that could jump-start the moribund immigration debate. As early as next week, House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and other GOP leaders will release a one-page set of principles outlining how they hope to overhaul the immigration system, people familiar with their plans say. It will stop short of offering the sort of path to citizenship endorsed by the Senate, but represents a major step toward what immigration advocates and Democrats have long sought. The
