Did Hillary Clinton betray a criminal client?
CNN, by Paul Callan

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/2/2014 4:40:53 AM

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on a national tour to promote her new memoir, "Hard Choices." But her journey has been unusually bumpy. Her recent gaffes about being "dead broke" or supposedly unlike the "truly well off" have made people wonder if she´s really in touch with ordinary Americans. And then there´s a legal case from her past cited in her book that makes one question whether she violated the attorney´s sacred oath to never betray a client´s secrets. The attorney-client privilege and its corollary duty to zealously advance the interests of even guilty clients form the very

Clinton´s brief against the 12-year-old victim was that "she exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way." What, did she throw a lamp at Hillary?

As to her legal ethics, it´s now well-known that her boss on the Watergate Committee said she had none.

Yes, she was fired from the Watergate investigation for being a liar. She is a consummate liar and totally unethical. She could not live with Bill Clinton and enable his behavior if she weren´t. Her brothers have the same ethics. Wonder if it is genetic or environment?

It was only a matter of time before anti-terror authorities reported that radicalized American or immigrant Muslims had returned home to the U.S. after taking up arms with ISIS in Iraq or Syria. A ranking Obama administration aide revealed as much on Monday, setting the stage for what must be unflagging surveillance, a drive to prosecute the returned jihadists to the fullest and a rewrite of federal law and policies to raise defenses. The rule should be: If you go to Syria or Iraq to fight as an unauthorized civilian, you are not coming home to the U.S. Responding to the White House

GOP Asks Obama To Reveal
His Secret Amnesty Plans
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/23/2014 5:26:24 AM     Post Reply
GOP legislators want President Barack Obama to explain his planned amnesty for illegal immigrants before Americans vote on Nov. 4. “Rather than attempt to hide these actions from the American people until after the midterm elections, Americans should be given the chance to come to their own conclusions… [so] they can then exercise their constitutional right to petition the federal government and let you know their opinions,” said the Sept. 20 letter from 22 GOP legislators. Obama announced in June that he would reduce enforcement of immigration law by the end of summer. He made the statement after GOP leaders told him

Why beheading?
Boston Globe, by Jeff Jacoby    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/23/2014 4:29:34 AM     Post Reply
ISLAMIC STATE has made the beheading of victims a key element in its campaign of terror and conquest. Most conspicuous in recent weeks have been the murders of Westerners James Foley, Steven Sotloff, and David Haines, whose severed heads and decapitated bodies have been shown in threatening videos produced by the jihadists. In the years since 9/11, other Islamist terrorist groups have circulated equally ghastly beheading videos. Among the earlier victims were journalist Daniel Pearl, businessman Nicholas Berg, and construction contractors Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong — all Americans beheaded by Al Qaeda. Last week, meanwhile, Australian police arrested 15 suspects

UN climate change: Obama gives

Fox News, by Richard Grenell    Original Article

This week, President Obama and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will frame the discussion at the U.N. as a simple way to confront the rising tides effecting coastal and island countries. There will be much talk from wealthy and developed nations about not ignoring these problems while poor and underdeveloped countries will eagerly agree to any action plan that includes money. But the two sides have very different goals. American and European liberals see the climate change debate, as well as the U.N. Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) discussion, as an altruistic response to their global public policy concerns. United Nations

Obamadale: The secret weapon
that could save Iowa Democrats?
CNN, by Peter Hamby    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/23/2014 4:22:08 AM     Post Reply
Des Moines, Iowa -- For a small band of supercharged Democratic organizers, the pleasant Des Moines neighborhood of Beaverdale goes by another name: Obamadale. The moniker was bestowed three years ago by a motley crew of Democrats who first met as strangers over martinis at a local restaurant in the early days of President Obama´s re-election bid, brought together under the aegis of the "neighborhood team" model that defined the campaign´s bottom-up volunteer structure. Led by Kimberley Boggus, a bubbly 33-year-old nursing student, and Sam Reno, a 42-year-old no-nonsense construction crew supervisor, the platoon of volunteers eventually managed to turn

Syria Says Washington

DAMASCUS, Syria-- The Syrian foreign ministry said Tuesday that Washington informed Damascus´ envoy to the United Nations before launching airstrikes against the Islamic State group in Syria, attacks that activists said inflicted casualties among jihadi fighters on the ground. The ministry issued a brief statement, carried by Syrian state media, saying that "the American side informed Syria´s permanent envoy to the U.N. that strikes will be launched against the Daesh terrorist organization in Raqqa." The statement used an Arabic name referring to the Islamic State group, which seized large chunks of Syrian and Iraqi territory in a blitz this summer. The airstrikes hit

Friday evening I left Journal Sports World Headquarters™ in a melancholy fog. It had been another dreary day of accusation and obfuscation in the NFL. A few blocks up Sixth Avenue, Roger Goodell had delivered a news conference in which he was asked much and answered little. He may as well have stood there in flip-flops, clipped his nails and munched loudly on a bag of corn chips. Not long after, word arrived, via ESPN, that the Baltimore Ravens may have been less than candid about their initial handling of the Ray Rice incident. Ugh. I took the subway home, went

With National Security Emerging as
Top Issue, Candidates Adjust Strategies

The shifting politics of foreign policy has scrambled the calculations for both parties ahead of the November elections. It has put some Senate candidates, unaccustomed to talking about national security issues, in an uncomfortable position, while elevated others with military experience and foreign policy bona fides. Candidates´ past votes, comments and even their biographies are emerging as huge opportunity in key Senate races, while emerging as glaring vulnerabilities in others. And in Arkansas, where Democrats hoped to exploit war-weariness among the public against hawkish GOP Senate nominee Tom Cotton, the terrorist attacks from ISIS have suddenly changed the mood in the

ISIS is once again urging Muslims to ´kill disbelievers´ and attacking Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama for recent statements they have made about the terrorist group in a new audio recording. Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani refers to Sec. of State Kerry as ´the old uncircumcised geezer´ and calls Pres. Obama ´the mule of the Jews´ on the recording, which is roughly 42-minutes long. He then asks Muslims to do whatever they can to kill those who do not share their faith. ´If you can kill a disbelieving American or European - especially the spiteful

Scottish referendum: A useful
lesson in the limits of fiery activism
Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley    Original Article

So was it a glorious triumph for democracy or wasn’t it? Before we get sucked into the next constitutional adventure on which the Prime Minister has launched us, it is really important to spend a few moments meditating at the graveside of the Yes campaign. Understanding what just happened in Scotland is absolutely critical to what is being planned, it would seem, for the rest of the Union. There certainly was an important lesson in the nature of democratic politics to be learnt from the Scottish referendum, but it is not the one that so many people – for whom the

The Rape Epidemic Is a Fiction

Rape is a vicious crime, one that disproportionately affects poor women and incarcerated men, but Barack Obama knows his voters, and so his recent remarks on the subject were focused not on penitentiaries, broken families, or Indian reservations but on college campuses, where the despicable crime is bound up in a broader feminist Kulturkampf only tangentially related to the very real problem of sexual violence against women. The subject is a maddening one. President Obama repeated the endlessly reiterated but thoroughly debunked claim that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in her college years. The actual rate is .

Close races mean possibility
Senate control will be decided
by post Election Day runoffs
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 9/22/2014 4:32:23 AM     Post Reply
A handful of tight races in states with quirky election laws make for the possibility that Election Day will come and go without deciding which party controls the Senate. If that happens, brace for a fierce runoff election and possible recounts that could make for an ugly holiday season in politics and government. The main reason for uncertainty: Louisiana´s election laws. Strategists in both parties say a Dec. 6 runoff is likely because Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu and top Republican challenger Bill Cassidy will struggle to exceed 50 percent on the crowded Nov. 4 ballot. In Louisiana´s "jungle primary," all candidates -- regardless

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

   

 



 
Four teachings from Jesus

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God. The phrase "the banality of evil" gets bandied about a

Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet.

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago
