FBI entrapped Raymond ´Shrimp

As state Sen. Leland Yee and his codefendants pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of political corruption, gun-running and other crimes financed by payoffs from undercover agents, a lawyer for one defendant accused the FBI of entrapment and racism. "The government created the crime, the government financed the crime, and the government ensnared my client," Tony Serra, lawyer for Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, told reporters after 21 defendants were arraigned in federal court. "We will put the government rightfully on trial." Chow, a Chinatown gang leader, was released from federal prison in 2003 after a racketeering sentence and promised to turn his

His attorney also said: The investigation was fueled, he contended, by "unadulterated racism..." Of course it was! They really do need to get some new material.

Deliberately false racism charges are inherently racist.

White House Passing the Buck to Biden to Deal with Iraq Crisis

Posted By: KarenJ1- 6/12/2014 10:30:57 PM     Post Reply
As Ukrainian protesters rallied against the Kremlin-backed government, were killed by government forces and weathered a subsequent Russian invasion, President Obama left it up to Vice President Joe Biden to directly communicate with the Ukrainian government. Obama even went so far as a skip a national security meeting on the Russian invasion at the beginning of March, which Biden joined via teleconference. Now, it appears that foreign policy methodology is playing out again in Iraq. Last night, the White House announced that Biden had jumped on the phone with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan “regarding the security situation around Mosul, Iraq, where elements of

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is welcoming members of Congress and their senior staff to tour a temporary shelter being used to house illegal immigrant children — but the invite comes with a list of rules, including a suggestion that members leave their cellphones in their vehicles. The 40-minute tour will take place Friday at the Ventura County Naval Base in Oxnard, Calif., according to the email invitation, obtained by The Daily Caller. The tours are meant to give members and staffers an inside look at how temporary facilities being used to house illegal immigrant children who

On Thursday, National Border Patrol Council Vice President Shawn Moran made an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” to discuss the recent revelations of how the influx of Central American children are being housed at border patrol facilities. Moran called it a “failure of policy” and explained that the agents on the border have been overwhelmed. “This is a failure of policy. Right now we have an immigration system designed to fail and our agents the border patrol agents nationwide – they’re stuck in the middle,” Moran said. “They are doing the best they can with the resources they have.

Gallup: Majority Says Obama

Fifty-one percent of the Americans who responded to a Gallup poll conducted June 5-8 said that they do not believe the phrase “is honest and trustworthy” applies to President Barack Obama. Gallup has asked Americans this question eight times over the last six years: “Thinking about the following characteristics and qualities, please say whether you think each applies or doesn´t apply to Barack Obama. How about: Is honest and trustworthy.” The latest poll, conducted June 5-8, was the first time that a majority said the description “is honest and trustworthy” does not apply to Obama. The poll surveyed 1,027 adults and had




The absurdity of electing

If House Republicans respond to the shocking primary defeat of Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., by elevating his handpicked successor Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., it would be beyond tone-deaf. It would be pure absurdity. Though we´ll never know precisely why Cantor was knocked off by Dave Brat, an obscure economics professor, it´s clear that in recent years, Cantor lost the trust of the conservative base and became a symbol of Washington. Whether it was on immigration or fighting to shrink the size and scope of government, Cantor was increasingly at odds with conservatives and far too cozy with business interests.

The U.S. military spent more than $3 million on patrol boats for Afghanistan in 2010 and then quietly canceled the shipment several months later with no explanation, leaving costly patrol boats unused in a Virginia warehouse for the past several years, according to new information released by a government watchdog group. It has come to light that the military and Defense Department cannot explain why the money was wasted due to “lapses in record keeping” that have resulted in files detailing the purchase being lost, according to an investigation by the Special Investigator for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). “The military has been unable

President Obama seems to have kicked his cigarette habit -- thanks to the continued use of nicotine gum, according to his doctor. “The president´s overall health is excellent. All clinical data indicates that the president is currently healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency,” the White House said today in releasing details about the president´s latest physical. Among the details: — The president continues to focus on healthy lifestyle choices. He eats a healthy diet, exercises daily, remains tobacco-free and only drinks alcohol occasionally and in moderation. — Ibuprofen. Occasional use to treat intermittent

President Obama, who rode his opposition to the Iraq War straight into the White House, isn´t so eager to talk about the conflict there anymore. The chaos just outside Baghdad has the potential to puncture Obama´s carefully crafted narrative, even more than the civil war in Syria or Russian aggression in Ukraine, because his political Image is more closely linked to Iraq than any foreign policy issue. The capture of Mosul and Tikrit by militants tied to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has once again called into question whether Obama is quick enough to deploy U.S. resources that

AUSTIN, Texas—Responding to the Texas border crisis, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott called on Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to fund the state of Texas to secure the border. This request for immediate assistance comes on the heels of reports of a 92 percent increase in the crossing of the Texas border by minors. Breitbart Texas has reported border patrol officials are overwhelmed by the influx of unaccompanied minors Texas. Last week, Brandon Darby, Breitbart Texas managing director, released photos showing the inhumane housing of these children who are being sent to Texas in hopes of a future amnesty. In

The coming fall of the artificial nation-state called “Iraq” should come as a surprise to exactly nobody. There never was such a place, other than in the minds of the British Foreign Office, which carved it and other equally imaginary countries out of the rump of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War. Now, an “insurgent” group nobody had even heard of two weeks ago, known by the pretty Egyptian-flavored acronym of ISIS, has gone and done the West a favor, if only we are smart enough to understand it, accept it and deal with it.

Arizona Republican Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain are calling on President Obama to send “a clear message” to those seeking to enter the United States illegally that they are not eligible for his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. “While resisting the temptation to take further unilateral action on immigration enforcement, the present situation begs your best efforts to make clear that there are consequences for illegally entering the U.S.,” Flake and McCain — members of the bipartisan Gang of 8 that pushed an immigration reform bill through the Senate last summer — wrote in a letter to Obama

Given the unfolding rebellion in Iraq, how can the White House claim the end of the Iraq War and the “decimation” of al Qaeda as “two signature achievements”? That was the key question posed by ABC reporter Jon Karl to White House spox Jay Carney on Thursday afternoon. “There is no question that the president pledged to end the War in Iraq and he did,” Carney immediately responded, prompting Karl to question: “There is no war in Iraq now?” And so Carney clarified: “[No] U.S. combat mission in Iraq.” Carney defended the administration’s being a “good partner” to the Iraqi

The staggering Republican primary defeat tonight of Eric Cantor, the second highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives and the third most-powerful Republican in Washington, is a reminder of just how volatile American politics has become. And how responsive. Eric Cantor wasn’t supposed to lose. His own pollster had him up by, get this, 34 points the other week. He’d raised nearly $5 million, and in the past two weeks spent $1 million against his rival’s $79,000. Not enough. There’s a lot of triumphalist talk tonight about sending a message to Washington and the establishment vs. the outsiders and all

The Islamic State of Iraq and greater Syria (ISIS) is shredding Iraq. After seizing the northern city of Mosul on Monday, on Tuesday ISIS stormed down Iraq’s route 1 highway to take Tikrit. This victory has left them emboldened and only 110 miles from Baghdad. [Snip] What´s happening in Iraq and Syria today is the nightmare that drove George W Bush to gamble everything on his January 2007 surge. He knew that Iraq’s collapse might enable Al-Qaeda in Iraq to rip the Middle East apart. And today Al-Qaeda in Iraq’s successor--ISIS--have never been closer to their dream.

A bipartisan delegation of House lawmakers are circulating a measure to reprimand the Obama administration for violating a U.S. law mandating that the administration provide Congress with advance notice before releasing dangerous terrorists from the Guantanamo Bay prison camp. The resolution comes in response to White House efforts to keep Congress in the dark about its controversial decision to release five top Taliban prisoners in exchange for captured Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel admitted in testimony to lawmakers Wednesday that the Obama administration intentionally and knowingly ignored the law, which mandates that Congress be given 30

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News. The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for

It is just about impossible to keep up with all of the Obama administration scandals, but the corruption of the Internal Revenue Service ranks near the top. Unfortunately, it has gone hand in hand with Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s corruption of the Department of Justice. The perversion of law enforcement agencies for political ends is starkly revealed by the fact that in 2010, as part of its effort to stem the Tea Party movement, the IRS gave the FBI disks containing more than 1.1 million pages of documents on Section 501 non-profits, so that the FBI could selectively prosecute

They’re barely old enough to vote, but graduating seniors at a Massachusetts high school were encouraged Wednesday by President Obama to boot Republicans from office and help the administration enact more of its agenda. Speaking at the commencement service at Worcester Technical High School in Worcester, Mass., the president slowly transitioned from delivering a pep talk to leading a political pep rally. After praising the school’s focus on career-centered education and encouraging graduates to give back to their communities, Mr. Obama addressed the rising cost of higher education, blasting Senate Republicans for stalling a Democrat-backed bill that would allow borrowers

Before he became a Taliban prisoner, before he wrote in his journal “I am the lone wolf of deadly nothingness,” before he ever joined the Army, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was discharged from the U.S. Coast Guard for psychological reasons, said close friends who were worried about his emotional health at the time. The 2006 discharge and a trove of Bergdahl’s writing — the handwritten journal along with other essays, stories and e-mails provided to The Washington Post — paint a portrait of a deeply complicated and fragile young man who was by his own account struggling to maintain his mental

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Irving-based Boy Scouts of America perpetuates “the worst stereotypes” by barring gay people from becoming Scout leaders. “The continuation of a policy that discriminates against gay adult leaders — by an iconic American institution — only preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes,” Holder said in a speech to the gay civil rights group Lambda Legal in Washington. Holder did not announce any legal action against the Boy Scouts. A Supreme Court decision 14 years ago said the Scouts, as a private entity, had a right to discriminate against
