Another Iran deal low for
the Obama administration

New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/12/2017 5:12:41 AM

Just a week after the US Senate failed to stop the Iran nuclear deal, Tehran launched a major cyberattack on the State Department — and the Obama administration kept it secret. The Washington Free Beacon broke the story last week, revealing that Team Obama was even more craven than we’d thought. The two sides were then still negotiating the “side deals” to finalize the accord; it wasn’t too late to stop it. And the attack showed that Iran wouldn’t remotely begin to moderate its ways, as the Obamaites had hoped. Indeed, the hacking seemed to target the State personnel involved in those negotiations

Obama should be sitting in front of these Senate hearings for his lies and corruption of Iran, Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Obama-care lies,surveillance and unmasking and the IRS.

What Happened To Black Lives Matter?

The Highlander Research and Education Center is one of the unsung mileposts of the struggle for civil rights. People like Rosa Parks, John Lewis, and Ralph Abernathy refined their organizing skills at Highlander. It was there, in 1957, that a young Martin Luther King Jr. first heard Pete Seeger sing “We Shall Overcome.” On his way to the airport after the anniversary of what was then known as the Highlander Folk School, King proclaimed, “There’s something about that song that haunts you.” Highlander has since moved farther east, but its mission remains the same. That’s why shortly after the 2016 election,

Trump in Iowa: President calls for barring

Fox News, by John Roberts    Original Article

President Trump announced Wednesday night that he will soon ask Congress to pass legislation banning immigrants from accessing public assistance within five years of entering the U.S. “The time has come for new immigration rules that say ... those seeking immigration into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years," Trump told a campaign-style rally in Grand Rapids, Iowa. Trump´s proposal would build on the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, which allows federal authorities to deport immigrants who become public dependents within five years

Democrats reel from another
special-election loss, and

Narrow losses in two House special elections had Democrats once again trading recriminations Wednesday and pondering anew whether their leaders have them on a path back to power. Especially painful was Jon Ossoff’s three-percentage-point loss Tuesday in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District after his campaign was buoyed by more than $23 million in donations, much of it from grass-roots Democrats across the country eager to oppose President Trump. That funding surge was blunted by millions of dollars’ worth of TV ads and mailers from Republican victor Karen Handel and from outside GOP groups. A common theme in those efforts was to tie Ossoff

As a resident of Hollywood, CA, I didn´t exactly see crying in the streets, but I did "feel their pain," as the saying goes. According to (where else?) Variety, the local entertainment industry went in big time in support of Jon Ossoff, the jejune sometime documentarian, in his quest to win the election in Georgia´s sixth congressional district. Rosie O’Donnell [ je suis shockay], Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Sean Daniel, Connie Britton, Sam Waterston and Kyra Sedgwick are among those who have donated to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s campaign, while others have been participating in phone banks to get out the vote and

James T. Hodgkinson: Just Another

Washington Have you followed the drift of the Mainstream Media (MSM) as to what provoked James T. Hodgkinson to attempt the massacre of the Republican baseball team as it practiced in Alexandria, Virginia last week? Not the Democratic team, not the Washington Nationals team, but the Republican team. Well, it was not necessarily Hodgkinson’s politics we are told. After all, his politics were pretty much mainstream progressive. According to the MSM, it was “a Volatile Home Life in Illinois.” That is the way the New York Times put it on the newspaper’s front page Sunday. Strong drink was alluded to. Anger and

The Left-Wing Terrorist’s
Capitol Hill Coup d’Etat
American Spectator, by Austin Bay    Original Article

Throughout history, grandiose visions of world-altering consequences have motivated political assassins. Gavril Princip’s June 1914 rendezvous with Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo is a horrifying example. Despite the historical track record, until James T. Hodgkinson’s June 2017 criminal assault on a Virginia baseball diamond, a chilling congressional coup d’état scenario which alters history in these United States would be little more than an edgy plot-line in a paperback thriller. In the Hollywood movie version there is a one hundred percent certainty right wing activists would be the monsters who attempted the coup. Unfortunately, the scenario is no longer over the edge.

Families made homeless by the Grenfell Tower fire should be free to occupy any empty properties they like across London’s wealthiest borough, Jeremy Corbyn has appeared to suggest. The Labour leader has said ministers must do more to find homes for the families who lost everything in the devastating blaze. Last week he said that vacant properties in the borough should be requisitioned for those made homeless by the fire. On Sunday, he went further by appearing to suggest that people should be allowed simply to occupy vacant flats and houses wherever they could find them across the Royal Borough of Kensington and

Just a brief update in our years long coverage of the Chevron Shakedown, and one which should be the last act in this sordid play, at least here in the United States. You may recall that about one month ago, the plaintiffs in the case, led by Manhattan Attorney Steven Donziger and his group of “environmentalist” allies, filed an appeal from the last in a long series of judgements which had gone against them. Having unsuccessfully tried to pick Chevron’s pockets to the tune of billions of dollars in a corrupt trial in Ecuador, Donziger had been found to have

One night too long ago to mention, I lay in my bunk aboard the destroyer USS Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. watching condensation bead up on the hull and realizing suddenly that there was scarcely a half-inch of steel between me and the ocean. At age 19, it was my first intimation of mortality. But while that half-inch didn’t seem like a lot, it was a fact of life in the Navy’s so-called tin-can fleet. Destroyers, then and now, are light, fast and maneuverable, but not particularly good at absorbing punishment. Destroyer crews understand this and practice incessantly at damage control — the art

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis visited Capitol Hill last week and gave Congress an important message. He told lawmakers that President Trump had authorized him to decide how many American military personnel should be deployed in Afghanistan. This is good news if there is to be anything like a sustainable peace there. For too long, the military has been unable to send more personnel than the amounts decided arbitrarily by President Obama, who was obsessed with building a legacy as a peacemaker rather than with doing what would have been effective. This forced the Pentagon to keep a low troop presence in

For half a lifetime, political radicals have been crossing a desert. Three decades ago, the collapse of communism and the destruction of the Berlin Wall turned them into orphans of history. American leftists, determined and resourceful, have gotten a firm grip on the levers of mass culture. But even with that, and with one of their own—a genuinely gifted politician—a two-term president until earlier this year, they have not gained a reliable base in the American public; and they have been humiliated by Donald Trump’s victory. Today, the leftist core is in reach of a most improbable political victory. It’s

The convoluted war zone in Syria grew more complicated Sunday with the downing of a government warplane by an American jet defending U.S.-backed coalition forces battling the Islamic State and, for the first time, direct action against the insurgent terror group by Iran, which fired ballistic missiles at Islamic State targets in Syria. The American shootdown of the Syrian jet took place near the Syrian town of Ja’Din, located south of Tabqa dam, the coalition’s main logistics and air support hub for the ongoing assault to drive the terror group also known as ISIS or ISIL from their self-styled capital of

Turns out…money can’t buy you love. Or a House seat in Georgia’s 6th District. Democrats pulled out all stops in their effort to show that the #Resistance isn’t just about marches and slogans and insulting the president, but also about flipping the House in 2018. They poured tens of millions of dollars into what became the most expensive House race ever, trying to elect 30-year-old nonentity Jon Ossoff to fill the seat of HHS head Tom Price. They cast the race as a referendum on Donald Trump, and a bellwether for 2018. Republicans will be elated with the outcome, and hopeful

It was the closing days of the summer session and Durden was already set for the fall semester. She was listed as a returning adjunct professor to teach mass communication and popular culture and two effective speech courses.

Republican Karen Handel staved off a furious challenge from Democrat Jon Ossoff on Tuesday in a race to represent a suburban Atlanta seat in Congress, as the GOP and President Donald Trump avoided an embarrassing defeat in the most expensive U.S. House contest in history. A former Georgia secretary of state, Handel emphasized her experience and roots in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District to defeat Ossoff and keep a seat that’s long been held by Republicans in GOP hands. She becomes Georgia’s first female Republican member of the U.S. House.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Video of a woman demanding for her son to be seen by a "white doctor" at a walk-in clinic in Ontario has gone viral. CTV Toronto reports the four-minute argument was recorded by a patient in the waiting room at the Rapid Access to Medical Specialists clinic on Sunday. In the video, an employee is heard explaining to the woman that a "white doctor" would not be available until 4 p.m. to see her child. To which she responds, "So you´re saying in the whole entire building there isn´t one white doctor? You´re telling me my kid has chest

Jon Ossoff was on a trajectory to defeat Karen Handel narrowly, poised to deliver a humiliating blow to the White House in a race billed as a referendum of Donald Trump’s early months in office. Then the Republican voters in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District unexpectedly showed up in droves. Pollsters say sky-high turnout drove Handel, the GOP nominee, to a nearly 4-point victory on Tuesday, despite most pre-election surveys showing Ossoff with a small-but-shrinking lead. Mathematically, a 4-point loss for a Democratic House candidate in a district that has traditionally elected Republicans by wide margins is an encouraging result for

Republican Karen Handel has defeated her upstart Democratic challenger in a Georgia runoff election. Handel, an experienced politician and former Secretary of State for Georgia, emerged on Tuesday night with a narrow win over 30-year-old Jon Ossoff. Incomplete returns show she is on track to receive about 53 per cent of the vote. Her narrow victory in Georgia´s 6th Congressional District allows Republicans a sigh of relief after the hotly-contested race, which is considered the most expensive in US House history. The special election was considered one of the first tests for Donald Trump´s controversial presidency, with voters given a chance to put another

(Video) - The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information. The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began,

A city on Mars with a million inhabitants could be achievable within 50 years, the space entrepreneur Elon Musk has forecast, as he laid out plans to turn mankind into a multi-planetary species. The SpaceX founder warned that humans would need to venture away from Earth to avoid a ‘Doomsday event’ and our ‘eventual extinction.’ But he said that a huge Martian city could be established this century, which would not just be an outpost, but a fully functioning society with ‘iron foundries and pizza joints.’

Democrat Jon Ossoff conceded the Georgia special election runoff to Republican Karen Handel Tuesday night, even as he argued that "fight goes on" for Democrats even after their latest election defeat. "This small community in Georgia, which has become the epicenter of politics — sometimes to my chagrin — for months now, it´s had nothing to do with me, it never has," Ossoff told the crowd at his campaign´s Atlanta watch party, soon after news outlets declared Handel the winner of the pivotal special election. "It´s about you. It´s about an extraordinary community at an extraordinary moment in history." Democrats had

Ed Morrissey may be on vacation but he’s still keeping his ear to the door of American politics. He popped up on Twitter this morning, searching for his dictionary to look up the definition of “chutzpah.” The reason for his apparent confusion was a rather off-putting interview with Georgia-06 Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff conducted by NPR’s Rachel Martin. The subject of the massive, record-breaking amount of cash dumped into this race couldn’t be avoided, so Martin asked Ossoff to weigh in. He did so, but his take on the subject rang a bit hollow to say the least. (Emphasis added

Despite receiving an invitation to meet with President Trump, members of the Congressional Black Caucus have reportedly chosen to decline, per Politico. Both Trump and the Congressional Black Caucus met in March to discuss issues important to CBC members, yet many in the Caucus felt as if little to no progress has been made since that meeting three months ago and that any subsequent meeting would be merely lip service. One Democratic aide illustrated the thinking of some in the Congressional Black Caucus saying, “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show.” Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa Manigault,
