NY Dem Invested in Iran’s
Biggest Oil Customer

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Lachlan Markay

Original Article

A Democratic House candidate is under fire for his husband’s sizable investment in a Chinese oil company that does extensive business in the Iranian oil sector. Facebook cofounder and poke button pioneer Chris Hughes, the husband of New York Democrat Sean Eldridge, owns between $100,000 and $250,000 of stock in China Petroleum and Chemical Corp., according to disclosure forms released last week. That company’s activity in Iran spurred Rep. Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), Eldridge’s opponent, to call on him to divest from those holdings. Hughes’ stake in the company “impacts our country’s national security,” Gibson said in a news release on

We took a trip to Kirkuk today. It was eye-opening. The road seemed perfectly safe from here in Erbil, Iraq. There was plenty of ordinary traffic, and normal checkpoints, along the 65-mile route. But it was somewhat interesting that our local drivers, for the first time, brought sidearms, Kalashnikov rifles, and extra magazines to work. We went to the Kirkuk Air Base. "Krabtown" is what the thousands of U.S. troops who were stationed there called it. The ghostly remnants of the American G.I.´s presence are everywhere. We saw a bumper sticker pasted onto an old Soviet MiG fighter jet. "Wall

(Video) In an interview with Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor of WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall, legal analyst Joe diGenova stated that the IRS’s announcement that it could not find Lois Lerner’s emails was actually initiated by President Obama. From WMAL: “The President told O’Reily–remember–‘not a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS,’” diGenova said on WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall on Monday. “That was a signal for people to destroy documents. The President of the United States was telling people at the IRS to destroy documents.” The problem began when the House Oversight Committee subpoenaed all of Lerner’s emails–and the

Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the cumulative outstanding balance on federal direct student loans has jumped 517.4 percent. The balance owed as of the end of May was $739,641,000,000.00. That is an increase of $619,838,000,000.00 from the balance that was owed as of the end of January 2009, when it was $119,803,000,000.00, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. Earlier this month, Obama announced new executive actions to allow five million student-loan borrowers to cap their monthly payments at 10% of their income, according to the White House. “Now, I’ve made it clear that I want to

U.S. economy: Not looking so good

NEW YORK -When it comes to the U.S. economy, the glass just went from half full to half empty. At the start of the year, economists were optimistic. Perhaps the economy would grow 3% this year, they said, instead of the measly 2% pace it´s been stuck at for the prior three years. So much for that hopeful thinking. Half-way through the year, forecasts are being slashed. The latest Zorro move comes from the International Monetary Fund. The organization said Monday that the U.S. economy would only grow 2% this year, down from it earlier forecast of 2.8%. This comes

Just 10 miles away from the center of Iraq´s second largest city, Mosul, which was overrun by jihadist militants last week, is Bartella, a Christian town living in fear. On the road to Mosul, CBS News´ Holly Williams stopped at the last checkpoint before territory now controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The militants have vowed to impose strict Islamic law in Mosul, and they´ve allegedly massacred dozens of non-Sunni Muslims in their advance. Just outside the militants´ control, and desperately vulnerable to attack an attack by ISIS, sits Bartella. Williams says Christians have inhabited the

BATON ROUGE, La. - A nephew of “Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson says he is running for the Louisiana congressional seat held by Vance McAllister, who was elected with the TV family’s support and later was wrapped up in scandal when video surfaced showing him kissing a married staffer. Zach Dasher, a 36-year-old Republican who has never run for office, said in a statement Monday announcing his candidacy for the Nov. 4 election that he opposed the federal health overhaul and abortion and supports a constitutional amendment requiring that Congress balance the budget. “I got to looking around at the

It was another bloody weekend in Obama´s hometown of Chicago as the city celebrated Fathers day. By the time the weekend drew to a close, two were dead and 25 wounded in violence across the city. As the weekend began on Friday, June 13, a 15-year-old boy was among six wounded on the City´s South and West sides. Most of the victims were in their 20s and 30s but on Friday afternoon a 15-year-old was wounded in Avalon Park. The boy was shot in the chest and is listed in serious condition.

Top Democrats said Monday that President Obama is ready to sign an executive order, long sought by liberals, than bans discrimination by federal contractors on the basis of sexual orientation. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Mr. Obama’s move “marks another significant step in our nation’s progress on civil rights.” “This executive order adds to the list of the [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender] community’s accomplishments during the Obama administration and is cause for celebration as we recognize June as LGBT Pride Month,” she said. Mr. Obama has directed his staff to draft the executive order that would

City officials have declared war on rats in their latest effort to attack a population that experts estimate could be double that of the Big Apple’s 8.4 million people. Starting next month, the city’s 45 inspectors will be bolstered by nine new employees of a pilot program to tackle the vermin in neighborhoods where rats have resisted repeated efforts to eradicate them — such as Washington Heights, West Harlem, Chinatown, the Lower East Side and the South Bronx. In an effort to keep them from spreading, inspectors will target rat havens like parks, sewers, dumping areas and subways. Financed with

The biggest show in town this week is “Revenge of the Thrifty Nerds,” starring Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos. It starts out with cool California kids having all the fun before the geeks in Seattle get their turn. Instead of competing for dates, they’re trying to win over consumers entering the next phase of the smartphone era. Bezos takes the stage Wednesday, when he’s expected to announce a phone that may be his most ambitious hardware product since the Kindle debuted in 2007. It’s great timing for a bargain-minded innovator. People are tired of being gouged by wireless companies and by phone-makers pressuring

A newly unearthed audio recording reveals Hillary Clinton engaging in a candid discussion of a case involving a man she defended who had been accused of raping a 12 year-old girl in 1975. The recording is of an interview with Clinton in which she tells an Arkansas journalist how she obtained a plea bargain for the accused rapist, despite her indication that she knew he was guilty. Unearthed by The Washington Free Beacon, the conversation is part of a five hour interview that both Hillary and Bill Clinton gave to Arkansas journalist Roy Reed. The tapes from that interview are

At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor´s primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton´s book tour. They´re all genuinely important news stories, and they´ve crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration´s attempts to deflect blame for the border

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense (snip) Let the Muslims kill each other. After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right. It is almost impossible for the administration to screw it up. All it has to do is nothing. Yes, Nothing!

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, "The ultimate attack of the evil one is

Top Jeb Bush adviser Mike Murphy, who did not even pay attention to Dave Brat´s campaign like Breitbart News did, has falsely been claiming that Cantor´s embrace of amnesty for illegal immigrants was not the reason he lost last Tuesday. Liberal writer Mickey Kaus had enough of Murphy´s nonsense and slammed him on Twitter on Friday evening. Kaus became Brat´s de facto press secretary and top advocate on Twitter in the last months of the campaign because Kaus, like Brat, opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants because it would hurt American workers. He mentioned to Murphy that talk radio host Laura Ingraham

Bill Clinton is by far the most admired president of the past quarter century, a new poll shows, underscoring how much he has done to burnish his profile since leaving the White House in 2000. Asked which president of the past 25 years they admired most, some 42% of respondents named Mr. Clinton in the new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Annenberg Survey. That was more than twice the share that named any other president. The other three presidents of the quarter century all polled about the same: 18% said they most admired President Barack Obama; 17% named George W. Bush; and 16%

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – It´s perhaps appropriate that President Barack Obama is vacationing this weekend in California, where the state flag features a roaming grizzly. The restless president, who has compared himself to a caged animal on recent wanderings by declaring the "bear is loose," took a long Father´s Day weekend away with his wife and older daughter. The visit to the desert resort area of Palm Springs is one of the ways Obama has been trying to escape during his sixth year cloistered in the White House. "I think frankly we've all been through a cold and bitter winter and the bear has cabin fever,"

Anaheim, CA - President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an uncomfortable truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to

President Barack Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese, as he issued a call to action on global warming to Saturday´s graduates of the University of California, Irvine. Obama issued the call to the tens of thousands gathered at Angel Stadium even though he said Congress ´is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence´ and say climate change is a hoax or fad. Obama said others duck the question. ´They say, "Hey, look, I´m not a scientist." And I´ll translate that for you: what that really means is, "I know that

Members of Congress called on President Obama Sunday to link up with Arab allies and quell a quick-moving crisis in Iraq, where Islamic militants swept toward Baghdad and left a bloody trail in their wake. Republican lawmakers said the administration has sat on the sidelines for too long as sectarian violence threatens to undo what U.S. troops accomplished during the war in Iraq. The bloodshed spurred by militants from an al Qaeda splinter group could topple the country’s fragile government while civil war rages in neighboring Syria, they said, offering a magnet for extremists from Iran and even western nations.

The first daughter looks to have set her sights on working behind the scenes in Hollywood after visiting the Los Angeles set of a new sci-fi show last week. Malia Obama, who turns 16 on July 4, spent a day working as a production assistant on the set of Halle Berry‘s upcoming sci-fi series Extant. The series is being produced by prominent Obama donor Steven Spielberg. First Lady Michelle Obama accompanied Malia to the CBS Studios as the teen helped with re-shoots of the pilot episode, assisting with computer alignments, and the director even let her use a production slate
