Did This Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate
Embellish Her Military And Legal Experience?

Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 5/12/2014 8:43:50 AM

If you listen to past statements made by Christine Jones, you might come away with the impression that the Republican candidate for governor of Arizona is a former Los Angeles prosecutor. You might also think she is an Air Force veteran. The problem: Neither of those things are 100 percent true. Jones, a political newcomer and former general counsel of web hosting company GoDaddy.com, is facing political attacks over statements about her work experience that don’t appear to line up completely with her past. Her campaign contests that she ever misled about her background. But spokeswoman Anna Haberlein acknowledged to

Comments:
Fudging the resume´ is not acceptable. I hope Arizona GOPers send their money to a different candidate.

Run, voters, run! Run AWAY from this liar.

These aren´t simply mistakes of facts. She LIED. She´s putting experience items in her resume that are false. "I tried cases in Compton." FALSE. There isn´t a law clerk in the country that "tries" cases. She was never a prosecutor in L.A. She. Lied.

And the obvious lie about being in the Air Force I find particularly egregious and insulting, as it should be to anyone who actually served. A ´Stolen Valor´ lie.

The Daily Caller is a Democrat propaganda outlet. Whether or not this woman is a worthy candidate for the governorsip will be determined soon enough by the people of AZ, with the help of their media. I prefer not to have to read the Caller´s stuff here.

#3, surely you are thinking of the Daily Beast, not the Caller. Even the Daily Beast is not as reliable lefty as it used to be.

Tucker Carlson has said his aim is to make The Daily Caller the conservative competition to Huffpo, offering constantly updated and current news and analysis from our perspective.

Obama and Elizabeth Warren have set a high standard for resume lying. This case does not rise to those levels, but it is a character flaw that should disqualify anyone from the job applied for, and require immediate dismissal for cause for anyone that has a job obtained under fraudulent pretenses. Therefore, security should be called and Obama and Elizabeth Warren led out of the building.

Even then, and I haven´t researched any facts, she should be judged against her opponent. Is she the best candidate or not.

We don´t get many clear choices these days.

Contrary to what you hear from the can´t buy a clue RINO posters, Tucker Carlson is not a conservative. He and his Daily Caller are RINO mouthpieces.

Instead of attacking anything TEA Party, when are the Karl Rove uglies going to start defending Boehner?

The strange case of the McDaniel staffer
locked in the county courthouse
Washington Post, by Philip Bump    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 6/5/2014 11:01:17 AM     Post Reply
The Hinds County, Mississippi Sheriff´s Department is investigating why three people, including a staffer for Republican senate candidate Chris McDaniel ended up locked in the county courthouse on election night, according to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger. Given how close the contest between McDaniel and Sen. Thad Cochran ended up on Tuesday night -- the two are separated by less than 1,500 votes -- the situation certainly raises eyebrows. Let´s get one thing out of the way at the outset. There is no evidence that the presence of McDaniel campaign coalition coordinator Scott Brewster and the others affected the results in the

The last of 29 Navajo Americans who developed a code that helped the Allies win the Second World War died in New Mexico on Wednesday at the age of 93, local media reported. Family members confirmed the death of Chester Nez to Albuquerque’s Action 7 News. He was the last remaining member of an original group of 29 Navajos recruited by the US Marine Corps to create a code based on their language that the Japanese could not crack. About 400 code talkers used their unique battlefield cipher to encrypt messages sent from field telephones and radios throughout the Pacific theater during

I don’t even know what to say. Via the New York Post (hat tip to NRO), more than half of the members of the New York City Council have served Walmart with a letter demanding that the company stop making millions of dollars in charitable donations to local groups: Twenty-six of the 51 members of the Council charged in the letter that the world’s biggest retailer’s support of local causes is a cynical ploy to enter the market here. “We know how desperate you are to find a foothold in New York City to buy influence and support here,” says

Chiquita Is Blocking a 9/11 Victims’ Bill

For years, the conglomerate paid off Colombian militias. So it’s no wonder the company is now furiously lobbying to stop a bill that would make it easier to sue terror financiers. Washington makes for strange alliances—and even stranger enemies. But this could wind up being the oddest confrontation of all. Chiquita, the world’s largest banana producer, is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to block a 9/11 victims’ bill, The Daily Beast has learned. And outraged supporters of the legislation accuse a senior lawmaker, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, of working with the fruit kings to stand in their way. According to Congressional lobbying

Bergdahl, Boko Haram and Benghazi

The third "B" in the collapse of our national security system and the State Department hit this week. The release of five very high-value terrorist leaders as a swap for one U.S. serviceman was the third strike against the Obama administration´s policy of defeat, dishonesty and self-delusion. When Congress starts investigating the Bergdahl case it must broaden the analysis to look at the common patterns which connect it to the administration´s approach on two other national security questions: Boko Haram and Benghazi. The first was Hillary Clinton´s State Department´s decision from 2011 to 2013 to reject requests by the FBI, CIA, Justice Department

St. Petersburg, FL.- Don Zimmer wasn´t a fixture in baseball forever. It just seemed that way. He played alongside Jackie Robinson on the only Brooklyn Dodgers team to win the World Series. He coached Derek Jeter on the New York Yankees´ latest dynasty. And his manager once was the illustrious Casey Stengel. For 66 years, Zimmer was a most popular presence at ballparks all over, a huge chaw often filling his cheek. Everyone in the game seemed to know him, and love him. Zimmer was still working for the Tampa Bay Rays as a senior adviser when he died Wednesday

IMPERIAL, Calif.-- A military jet slammed into a Southern California neighborhood dense with homes and exploded in flames, but the pilot and everyone on the ground emerged unscathed, officials said. Moments after the pilot ejected to safety Wednesday afternoon, the Harrier jet went down in a residential area of Imperial and destroyed two homes and heavily damaged a third. Eleven-year-old Christopher Garcia was watching TV with his father and brother when he heard a frightening boom. Outside, he said he saw a pilot in a parachute falling from the sky, and what looked like a mushroom cloud of dark smoke two blocks

Tom MacArthur defeated Steve Lonegan in New Jersey’s 3rd District Republican primary Tuesday and will face Democrat Aimee Belgard in the fall, according to The Associated Press. MacArthur, a former insurance executive, won 60 percent of the vote, and Lonegan, a conservative activist, won 40 percent, with 41 percent of precincts reporting. In the Democratic primary, Belgard won with a commanding 78 percent of the vote. MacArthur loaned his campaign at least $2 million, giving him a cash advantage over Lonegan, who is best known for being the outspoken GOP nominee against Cory Booker in the special Senate election last year.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Two of the Southwest´s largest coal-fired power plants straddle the San Juan River in northwestern New Mexico, one within clear view of the other. But one of them didn´t factor into the Obama administration´s plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions across the nation because it is on an American Indian reservation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said it will hold off on emissions standards for four power plants on reservations to talk further with tribes and give them an opportunity to create cleanup plans of their own. If the tribes decline, the federal government will craft

With 70 million households in America owning pets, it’s no surprise that the TV ads with sad music showing needy cats and dogs tug at our heartstrings. Americans give hundreds of millions a year to national animal charities. Sadly, a good chunk of that money isn’t going to help those animals. It’s going to pay a racketeering lawsuit settlement. Last month, several animal-rights groups including the Humane Society of the United States agreed to pay $16 million to settle a suit over their alleged behavior in a different lawsuit. The payout settles claims that they’d engaged in illegal payments to a witness as

In the first year since the Wolverine State adopted a right-to-work law in 2013, SEIU Healthcare Michigan lost a staggering 80 percent of its members.

House Republican aides say congressional leaders from both parties expressed deep misgivings about a proposed prisoner exchange when they were briefed on the idea in 2011 and 2012. The prisoner swap was first proposed to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, along with the top Democrats and Republicans of relevant Senate and House committees, on November 30, 2011. In the briefing, officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the Department of Defense, and the CIA, laid out the outlines of an arrangement they said had been working on since early 2011: to exchange five Taliban members being held at

The seeds of what blossomed grotesquely in the Rose Garden last weekend — a celebration of the release of five senior Taliban military leaders in exchange for a U.S. sergeant purported to be a deserter — were sown a long time ago: on the second and third days of President Obama’s first term, to be precise. On his second day in office, the president signed an executive order directing that the Guantanamo Bay detention facility be closed. You can watch the cringe-inducing video of the signing ceremony on YouTube, as the president stumbles through a reading of the order to

The chairman of the Democratic National Committee accused Republicans of “grasping at straws” in their criticism of the Bowe Bergdahl case and “nitpicking” over the number of Taliban exchanged for his release. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) accused GOP senators, specifically Susan Collins (R-Maine), of saying “we should leave a member of our armed forces who was in the midst of an armed conflict, regardless of the circumstances that he will likely be tried for and considered innocent until proven guilty later.” “That she would leave a soldier in an armed conflict behind when we had intelligence from everything that I understand

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that he didn’t know of any troops who had died in the search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, amid a growing controversy over whether the former Taliban prisoner deserted his unit. “I do not know of specific circumstances or details of U.S. solders dying as a result of efforts to find and rescue Sgt. Bergdahl," Hagel said at a press conference in Brussels, Belgium, where he met with NATO defense ministers, Reuters reported. Bergdahl’s release sparked controversy after the Obama administration’s decision to swap him for five Taliban commanders being held in the prison at

One of the most striking elements of the Bowe Bergdahl affair is word that top Army officers were so anxious to keep the matter a secret that they directed Bergdahl´s fellow soldiers to sign a pledge of silence about his 2009 decision to walk away from duty in Afghanistan. "Many of Bergdahl´s fellow troops…signed nondisclosure agreements agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl´s disappearance and the efforts to recapture him," wrote CNN´s Jake Tapper, who first reported the agreements last Sunday. Now, with Bergdahl back in U.S. hands, many of those former soldiers are ignoring the agreement they signed. They

Among the most tantalizing mysteries surrounding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s departure from his U.S. military base in 2009 is this: Was he trying to find the Taliban? Or did he simply wander away and get captured? Politicians and members of the military have criticized the Obama administration’s decision to swap five jailed Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, saying the soldier may have deserted. Until now, few details have emerged about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from his base. But The Washington Post has reached Afghan villagers who spotted Bergdahl shortly after he slipped away from his base. To them, it’s clear something was

Five years ago, I publicly raised questions about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion from Blackfoot Company, 1-501 Infantry (Airborne), 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division. A few weeks after his so-called “capture” in late June 2009, three conflicting accounts had surfaced: U.S. officials told the Associated Press Bergdahl had “walked off” the base with three Afghans; the Taliban claimed on its website that “a drunken American soldier had come out of his garrison” and into their arms; and Bergdahl claimed in his Taliban “hostage video” that he had “lagged behind a patrol” before being captured.

BRUSSELS— President Barack Obama said Thursday he "absolutely makes no apologies" for seeking the release of Sgt.

When it comes to getting soldiers back from war, Obama said, "We don´t condition whether we make the effort to get them back."

Bill Clinton´s critics in Arkansas used to say that he would rather climb a tree and tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth. In other words, Clinton would lie when the truth would do -- and when telling the truth would be easier. The saying might apply to the Obama administration´s public statements about Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier released from captivity in Afghanistan in a trade for five Taliban commanders held at Guantanamo Bay. There is substantial evidence to suggest that Bergdahl abandoned his post in 2009 -- he went AWOL, he deserted, whatever

Britain works “pretty well” as a “united” nation, the US President said, in major intervention in the debate over the future of Scotland. The President reiterated his call for Britain to remain in the European Union. The commemoration of D-Day shows Europe depends on Britain for its prosperity, and the UK will lose out if it excluded, the President said.
