DHS OFFICER: JANET NAPOLITANO DECEIVED CONGRESS ABOUT BOSTON BOMBING

Newly retired official now can tell story of massive cover-up

Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano
Department of Homeland Security officer Philip Haney saw something nobody else in the intelligence and law-enforcement community was seeing.
Four years before the Boston Marathon bombing, he began developing a file on the mosque attended by the perpetrators of the attack, the Tsarnaev brothers. The information Haney uploaded to a National Targeting Center database – which is available to Department of Homeland Security officers at the nation’s ports of entry – documented the Islamic Society of Boston’s extensive ties to terrorism.
One day after the April 15, 2013, attack that killed three people and injured 264 more, a Saudi student who was at the scene, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, was under investigation.
Haney, with a nexus to the case because of his ongoing investigation of the Boston mosque, searched Alharbi’s name in one of the NTC databases.
Bingo. Alharbi’s file showed he was an armed and dangerous terrorist who was about to be deported.
Haney brought the information to the attention of the House Committee on Homeland Security, and later that week, Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., confronted then-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano with it.
Citing the DHS slogan “If you see something, say something,” Duncan asked why someone who not only was at the scene of the bombing, but also described by authorities as a person of interest in the case, was about to be deported.
An indignant Napolitano refused to answer, ridiculing Duncan for asking a question she said was “so full of misstatements and misapprehensions that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”
To this day, many of the details of the Saudi’s entrance and exit from the Boston story remain a mystery to the public.
But Haney, as a central figure behind the scenes of the investigation, tells his role in the story for the first time in his new book, published by WND Books and co-authored with WND News Editor Art Moore, “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.”
In the book, officially released Tuesday, Haney presents first-hand evidence that Napolitano either lied to Congress or was grossly misled by her staff and that she and her boss, President Obama, were protecting Saudi Arabia and a citizen the U.S. government regarded as a potential armed and dangerous terrorist.
But the story didn’t end with Napolitano’s public testimony. Somehow, the information Philip gave to the House Committee on Homeland Security was leaked to the Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier and to Glenn Beck, founder of The Blaze.
On the Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Beck held up a piece of paper claiming it was proof positive that authorities had designated Alharbi as a terrorist and intended to deport him to his home country of Saudi Arabia.
see-something-cover
One year after the bombing, Alharbi filed a lawsuit against Beck, claiming libel, slander and defamation. The case likely will go to trial this year.
“See Something, Say Nothing” presents many more remarkable accounts of what Haney saw during his nearly 14 years as a founding member of DHS. In short, he saw concern for the civil rights and civil liberties of foreigners and subversive Islamic groups – political correctness – take precedent over national security.
And for DHS officers who take their oath seriously, Haney discovered, the consequence of following the evidence where it leads often is punishment by a politically motivated administration.
Haney himself – while receiving many awards and commendations from his immediate superiors for work above and beyond the call of duty – was investigated nine times. Ultimately, he was the target of a criminal investigation by the Department of Justice – in which he was exonerated – accusing him of leaking the information about Alharbi to media.
Last week, WND reported Haney also disclosed that the Obama administration, citing concerns about discrimination against Muslims, shut down a case he developed that could have stopped the San Bernardino massacre last December.
The intelligence was ignored, despite having been used to connect members of the movement to terrorist organizing and financing at the highest levels, including for Hamas and al-Qaida.
In addition, 67 records of individuals and organizations linked to the case that Haney had compiled were completely eliminated by orders from “upper management.”
See a trailer for “See Something, Say Nothing”:
See Something, Say Nothing (Official Trailer)
Stranger than fiction
If it were concocted by a fiction writer, Haney’s story of being in the center of so many of the Department of Homeland Security’s seminal events would be dismissed as an implausible narrative.
But it’s a true story that Haney, with a background in scientific research, documented meticulously throughout his career. And unlike so many today who remain silent either because of ideology or fear of reprisal, he embraced his agency’s stated directive, “If you see something, say something.”
Here are some of the things he saw that are told in vivid detail in “See Something”:
  • How the Bush administration stripped him and other frontline officers of their ability to define the threat;
  • How much the Obama administration knew about the Islamic Society of Boston, in advance of the Boston Marathon bombing, and how it launched an ongoing cover-up on behalf of a major ally;
  • The administration’s stealth policy to protect Islamic leaders with supremacist beliefs and violent-jihadist ties, allowing them to freely travel between the U.S. and the Middle East;
  • The access to the White House and classified information given to members of Muslim Brotherhood front groups;
  • The damning intelligence on Muslim Brotherhood-linked leaders invited to sit at the table and help form national-security policy;
  • The “words matter” memo imposing the demands of radical U.S. Muslims leaders on the DHS, including stripping intelligence and official communications of any mention of Islam in association with terrorism;
  • The purging of training material that casts Islam in a negative light;
  • The erasing and altering of vital intelligence on terrorists and terror threats;
  • The fear-based tactics imposed by the Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. and their accomplices that paralyze officials, members of Congress and any Department of Homeland Security employee who dares to expose or resist their agenda.










"I have great respect for our institutions of government," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in the statement to the House Judiciary Committee, a hearing he declined to attend. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)

IRS chief to Congress: I never wanted this job
RUDY TAKALA (@RUDYTAKALA)

The head of the Internal Revenue Service never asked to lead the agency, he said in written testimony on Tuesday, adding that he had been "happily retired" and that the move to impeach him was "wholly improper."
"I have great respect for our institutions of government," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in the statement to the House Judiciary Committee, a hearing he declined to attend. "When I began my services as commissioner ... I took over an agency under investigation by six different bodies and buffeted by ongoing, serious controversy. I regret that, in the period since then, we have not been able to bring these matters to a conclusion."

Koskinen took the helm of the agency in December 2013 after his predecessor, Lois Lerner, was forced to resign amid revelations that the agency had improperly targeted conservative. However, Koskinen has drawn the ire of members who suggest he has obstructed their investigation into Lerner's practices since he took over. He also faced criticism for failing to defend the agency against cyberattacks, and for failing to verify Social Security numbers for fear of outing illegal immigrants.

"I never sought the position of IRS commissioner," Koskinen wrote in his own defense. "I was happily retired. I served on the boards of two large, publicly-traded companies and tried to keep up with my grandchildren. But I agreed to serve when approached by the current administration in May 2013, because I have a longstanding commitment to public service, and because I understand the importance of the IRS to the government and the nation.

"I believe impeachment is a wholly improper tool in this instance," he added. "While the allegations made by some members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are serious and relate to acknowledged errors made by the IRS, the Constitution reserves the use of impeachment for 'treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors.' None of my actions relating to the issues above, viewed in light of all the facts, come close to that level."

With the exception of President Clinton, the last time Congress voted to impeach a member of the executive branch was in 1876, when the secretary of war was impeached on charges of public corruption.

Koskinen on Monday said he would decline to appear before the committee this week, saying he would do so at a future date but that prior travel arrangements made it too difficult for him to attend Tuesday's hearing.


Harry Reid: ‘Hell no’ Hillary shouldn’t pick Warren as VP

BY LARRY O'CONNOR


The smart guys in Washington think it would be a great idea for Hillary Clinton to pick Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as her running mate. The conventional wisdom suggests that the liberal firebrand would shore up Hillary’s left flank thus giving Bernie Sanders supporters someone to rally around.
There’s also a school of thought that the historic nature of not one but two women on the ticket could add some enthusiasm to the lackluster support for Clinton. Injecting Warren’s energy and passion to the cause could turn around recent poll numbers that show Democrats to be much less interested in this season’s presidential campaign then their Republican counterparts.
By the way, a fascinating sidebar on this “Elizabeth Warren brings energy to the ticket” idea. Did you know that Warren is only two years younger than Hillary Clinton? Two years. Doesn’t she seem a lot younger than Hillary? I mean, like ten years younger? It’s telling that her presence would be perceived as a “youthful injection” to the moribund Clinton campaign.
All that said, there’s at least one prominent voice for the Democrats saying that Warren would be an awful choice for Hillary’s Veep. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) spoke out strongly against the idea yesterday on MSNBC saying, “not only no, hell no,” to the idea:
“If we have a Republican governor in any of those states, the answer is not only no, but hell no. I would do whatever I can, and I think most of my Democratic colleagues here would say the same thing.”
Reid went on to say he would “yell and scream to stop” a move to nominate Warren or Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, another darling of the far-left.
At issue is Reid’s hope that the Democrats could regain a majority in the Senate this November. If either Warren or Brown were to win on the Clinton ticket, they’d have to vacate their senate seat to take on the “bucket of warm piss” duties of the Vice President.
That would mean that the Governors of those two states, Massachusetts and Ohio, respectively, would have the responsibility to nominate their successor. Those states are currently governed by Republicans, thus thwarting Reid’s hope to take back the senate majority.
It’s an interesting dynamic and Reid’s position is probably shared by other Democrats in senate leadership. The big question is, does Hillary care what Reid or any other Democrat thinks? The Clinton’s have shown themselves over the years to be some of the most selfish political couple in decades. They’ve been known to put their own political ambitions before any other consideration.
Many observers point to Bill Clinton’s agreements on welfare reform, a balanced budget and the crime bill back in the mid-90s as a cynical insurance policy for re-election in 1996. It did nothing to help his fellow Democrats running against the Republicans he was making deals with but he didn’t care. His presidency was paramount.
There’s absolutely no indication that Hillary would be any different. Expect her to ignore any other considerations when choosing her running mate. They’ll be picked for one reason and one reason only: To win her the White House.


Saudi Newspaper Claims U.S. Carried Out 9/11 Attacks

Nick Kangadis




A London-based Saudi Arabian newspaper Al-Hayat ran anarticle last Thursday claiming the United States was responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United 93.

This comes after the U.S. Senate passed a bi-partisan bill allowing 9/11 victims' families to sue the Saudi government. The Obama administration has threatened to veto the bill.

The author of the article was Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari, who wrote that the U.S. government carried out 9/11 as a way to introduce a war on terror.

According to the article which was translated to English from Arabic:

Those who follow American policy see that it is built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities. This is because it occasionally presents a certain topic to a country that it does not wish [to bring up] at that time but [that it is] reserving in its archives as an ace to play [at a later date] in order to pressure that country.

Basically what al-Shammari is saying is that America forgives, but they never forget. While that statement is true, why would the U.S. government destroy the financial center of its own country? And why would we hold out on actions against the Saudis until now?

The fact that our government had knowledge of the Saudis involvement on 9/11 and didn’t act on the information until almost 15 years later does seem a little peculiar. Could it be that the U.S. is less dependent on foreign oil than it once was? After all, a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration did just reveal that the U.S. dependence on foreign oil is at its lowest point since 1970.

Anyway, Al-Shammari continued:

September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings... Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions. [This policy] can be dubbed 'victory by means of archives.'

There have been many conspiracy theories over the years as to how the World Trade Center's towers collapsed -- which have been widely debunked -- and apparently, al-Shammari watched a ton of them. Alex Jones would be so proud.

The Daily Beast reported on May 12 of this year that U.S. District Court Judge William Zloch is trying to determine what information can be declassified among 80,000 pages of classified government documents relating to the 9/11 attacks. The documents are said to possibly include more information on the Saudis possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Are the Saudis trying to expose the U.S. for their actions, or are they worried that the documents could pose a serious threat to their own national security?

VA: No apology, blames wait time scandal on computer program
By PETE KASPEROWICZ (@PETEKDCNEWS)


The Department of Veterans Affairs on Monday sought to clarify VA Secretary Robert McDonald's controversial comparison between the VA's wait times and wait times at Disneyland, by saying veterans themselves have said wait times are not the only important factor when it comes to healthcare at the VA.
But the VA declined to apologize for McDonald's remarks, which angered members of both parties on Monday, and declined to admit that the wait time scandal that broke in 2014 was the result of purposeful manipulation of data by VA workers. Instead, the VA blamed it on a bad computer program.

"When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what's important?" McDonald said Monday morning. "What's important is, what's your satisfaction with the experience?"

Hours after McDonald spoke, the VA released a statement from the agency itself, not a named spokesman, that said the VA is working to improve service, a goal officials "take seriously."

"We know that Veterans are still waiting too long for care," the statement said. "In our effort to determine how we can better meet veterans' needs, knowing that their satisfaction is our most important measure, we have heard them tell us that wait times alone are not the only indication of their experience with VA and that's why we must transform the way we do business."

The VA also said relying on wait times alone can have "unintended consequences," a reference to the years VA officials themselves manipulated wait time data in order to make it appear that veterans were getting timely access to care.

The statement said the agency is working with private companies to provide "positive experiences" for veterans.

The VA statement also described the agency's old wait time system and the changes it's seeking to make, but omitted any reference to the deliberate manipulation of wait time data by officials.

Instead, the VA chalked up the scandal to a system for generating wait times that was based on when appointments were requested, which it said created a "computer-generated time stamp ... that did not reflect the veteran's preference."

It said changes were needed to "clear up these interpretations or misinterpretations."

NRA Honors Rape Survivor Who Challenged Obama on Gun Rights

Kimberly Corban recognized by top NRA officials
Kimberly Corban
Kimberly Corban / Kimberly Corban - Survivor Facebook Page
    
BY: “This is actually my first meeting and I didn’t realize it was so big,” she said to the gathering. “It’s funny when you’re in a small room with the president and a bunch of cameras you don’t think beyond who I’m talking to at that time. To hear how many people that impacted and took something away from that is really, really humbling.”
After announcing his plan to enact new gun control measures through executive action President Obama appeared on a CNN town hall this January. He was questioned by those who support his efforts, as well as a number of skeptics. Corban spoke up during the town hall and challenged the president, suggesting that his proposals would make it harder for her to defend herself and her family.
“As a survivor of rape and now a mother to two small children, you know, it seems like being able to purchase a firearm of my choosing and being able to carry that wherever me and my family are, it seems like my basic responsibility as a parent at this point,” she said. “I have been unspeakably victimized once already, and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids. So why can’t they see these restrictions that you’re putting to make it harder for me to own a gun or harder for me to take that where I need to be is actually just making my kids and I less safe?”
President Obama said he was not trying to make it harder to purchase a gun. He then said it was questionable whether or not firearms can prevent sexual violence.
“There are always questions as to whether or not having a firearm in the home protects you from that kind of violence, and I’m not sure we can resolve that,” he said. “People argue it both sides. What is true is, is that you have to be pretty well trained in order to fire a weapon against somebody who is assaulting you and catches you by surprise.”
Corban was a sophomore at the University of Northern Colorado when a man broke into her apartment and raped her. He was soon caught and prosecuted. Thanks to her cooperation with police and her testimony at trial, Corban’s rapist was convicted and sentenced to 24 years to life in prison.
Once the trial was over Corban decided to make her story public in the hope that she might be able to help other survivors. “If I could just save one person from having to experience what I did then, everything would be worth it,” she said.
Corban began training with and carrying handguns a few years after her rape, becoming politically active in 2013. Her home state of Colorado passed a number of new gun control measures in that year and Corban viewed it as an attack on her right to self-defense.
“I went down and sat in front of the senators and talked about my horrible experience and why it was I needed the right to carry,” she said. “I was fine keeping to myself and carrying that firearm knowing that if I needed to use it to protect myself or my peers that I was able to do so.”
Susan LaPierre, a member of the executive committee of the NRA’s Women’s Leadership Forum, recognized Corban during the women’s luncheon at the NRA Annual Meeting on Friday. Chris Cox, the head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, recognized her again in the group’s members meeting on Saturday.


BREAKING – Anti-Trump Megyn Kelly Just Got THIS Terrible News

Megyn Kelly recently interviewed Trump during the pilot of a new show on Fox. But, it looks like her interview with Trump did exactly the opposite of what she was expecting.
According to NYMag.com, “It exposed the extent of her limited mainstream appeal. Kelly drew just 4.8 million viewers on Tuesday night, a number television executives say is a disappointment by any measure.”
The audience was about half of what the network was hoping for when it aired the program.
Keep in mind, this was also aired during an election night, when we would think everyone would have been very interested in the Trump vs Kelly battle.

A lot of the flack is centered around the fact Kelly appeared to have backed off Trump during the interview when most viewers wanted to see some serious fireworks.
I actually understand why Kelly kept the line of questioning the way she did; she just wanted the Trump attacks to stop.
However, in going this route, she really put the integrity of her journalistic abilities on the table for discussion.
Even though Trump supporters literally hated her for her attacks on Trump, she had more than enough support to justify going after him again if she so chose.
Now, it looks as though she has lost leverage with the Network in her new contract negotiations.
She may have also killed her hopes of being the next Barbara Walters, which was apparently her intent based on some of the comments she made during recent interviews.
Kelly really loses here, because the interview did a LOT of good for Trump, but may have sent her career on a downward spiral.


TSA, the VA, Venezuela and Bernie

What do these have in common—TSA, the VA, Venezuela and Bernie Sanders?
You may have already guessed, but first, in case you missed this on your Twitter feed....
UPDATE: Kelly Hoggan has been removed from his position as head of security at TSA, following our hearing on May 12 on mismanagement at TSA.
— Oversight Committee (@GOPoversight) May 23, 2016
CNN has more:
The House Oversight Committee conducted a hearing on TSA's operations on May 12. At the hearing the TSA Administrator, Peter Neffenger, was questioned why Hoggan was given $90,000 in bonuses when security lines were not improving.
His agency is on the defensive after three former TSA employees testified that they were retaliated against after "directed reassignments," where employees who have highlighted wrongdoing within the administration are shifted to other assignments.
Neffenger said then that he did not "tolerate" potential retaliation against whistleblowers and pledged to "look into it."
The TSA declined to comment. But in an internal memo from Neffenger on Monday, the TSA announced several changes to its management.
That's the same TSA that is making our lives miserable across America, many of us missing planes, with its total incompetence and endless airport security lines.
Meanwhile—the same day—over at the Veterans Affairs:
"The days to an appointment is really not what we should be measuring. What we should be measuring is the veteran's satisfaction," [Veterans Affairs Secretary Bob] McDonald told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, according to The Hill newspaper. "When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line?" he asked. "What's important is what's your satisfaction with the experience."
What kind of ghastly human being compares waiting to have an artificial limb so you can walk again with waiting for a ride on the Matterhorn or Pirates of the Caribbean?  Unfortunately, the answer is, you guessed it, "a government official."  (And, of course, you'll also guess who jumped on this one.)
It's obvious what these two Monday reports have in common—they're  from government agencies.  We expect them to be incompetent and so they are.  Indeed, it's almost certain TSA's work could be done better by the private sector.  Veterans Affairs is a bit more complicated, but even so....the more government agencies you have, the more a country comes to resemble....
Venezuela—from whence there was also news today:
A sugar shortage has forced Coca-Cola to stop producing soft drinks in Venezuela amid an escalating food and energy shortage.
Coke said that suppliers in Venezuela will "temporarily cease operations due to a lack of raw materials".
The announcement comes after the country's biggest brewer, Empresas Polar, closed plants due to a barley shortage.
Venezuela's economy has contracted sharply as oil prices plunge.
No beer, no Coke, no oil.  Oh, and no tires.  But have no fear. When socialist regimes indeed plunge into the toilet economically, as they inevitably do, we know who steps in—the military:
Either President Nicolas Maduro genuinely believes there is a credible threat to Venezuela's national security from an unspecified foreign power, or he is delusional.
In what were described as the biggest ever military exercises to have taken place on Venezuelan soil, President Maduro proudly declared that more than 500,000 troops from the armed forces and civilian militias loyal to the government participated in "Operation Independence 2016" over the weekend.
"We have never been more prepared than this," barked the president in a speech evoking Venezuela's military heroes of the past, none more important than Mr Maduro's predecessor in office, Hugo Chavez.
Sounds like it comes straight from the pages of Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism... or is it Hayek's The Road to Serfdom?  But have no fear again because Bernie Sanders has been careful to separate himself from the excesses of the nefarious Chavez and his spawn Maduro.  From Venezuela Today:
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is a rarity in American politics: a self-described socialist running for the White House. And this September, Sanders sought to distance himself from one of the most well known socialists of the new millennium — Hugo Chávez.
Sanders accused Hillary Clinton supporters of attempting to smear him by linking him with the divisive figure. Clinton is Sanders’s biggest rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, and the comments were allegedly made by pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC Correct the Record. But in trying to distance himself from Chávez, Sanders is making many Venezuelans angry.
And they should be, because Chavez, it should be noted, started out, like Bernie, as a democratic socialist. Hugo was elected democratically.  It just got a bit worse from there, as it often does.
SPONSORED
Now I'm not saying that's what Bernie—who is unlikely to be elected anyway, but you never know—is going to do.  But he will take us a step closer, increasing the power of government agencies -- and not just TSA and the VA.  Bernie believes government is the solution to everything.  And that's fine for a feisty old guy like him, if he just would have stayed in a coffee shop in Burlington, doing Larry David imitations instead of the other way around.  But unfortunately  he's going around the country infecting the brains of young people with this nonsense.  And it's pretty obvious they don't know better.  Why should they?  Their teachers don't either.
So you have the answer to the question—what do TSA, the VA, Venezuela and Bernie Sanders have in common?  As Orson Welles would say, A Touch of Evil.... maybe more than a touch.

BombShell: This Is Who Boehner Thinks Could Drop Out Of Presidential Race

While speaking at a conference recently, former House Speaker John Boehner declared that he would not be surprised if presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is forced to withdraw from the Presidential race due to criminal charges as a result of the FBI investigation into her use of private email server.
According to The Blaze:
Speaking at the SALT Conference in Las Vegas, Boehner reportedly said such a scenario would not surprise him he could see Vice President Joe Biden taking her place as the party’s nominee.
The comment came as the FBI is said to be in its finals stages of an investigation into Clinton’s email conduct while secretary of state.
An email conversation made public Thursday revealed Clinton, frustrated with technical issues, once abandoned a secure line in favor of using her house phone to talk to a top aide.
Biden said earlier this week that he “would have made the best president,” but ultimately decided not to run for the nation’s highest office after his son Beau died last May of cancer.
When high-level officials start making comments like this, you know they are trying to get you ready for such a possibility. Clearly the former Speaker knows more about the Clinton email investigation then what’s reported in the news, and clearly he sees things coming to fruition in the next couple months.


This Unconstitutional Decision Back In Court In Maryland


7142291_s
The United States Fourth Circuit Court is revisiting Maryland’s 2013 Firearms Safety Act, which banned “assault style” weapons and magazines that have over a ten-round capacity. Since signed by anti-gun Democrat Gov. Martin O’Malley, the ban has seen a considerable amount of courtroom action.

In February a three-judge panel for court, citing the ban violated the Second Amendment, kicked the 2014 decision by U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Blake upholding the prohibition back downstairs with the mandate that it be heard with new guidelines, requiring Maryland to prove the restriction argued in Kolbe v. Hogan furthers a compelling interest and is narrowly tailored to achieve that interest.

The Fourth Circuit then followed this up in March with a decision to rehear the case in total by a rare en banc panel of the entire court.
Opening remarks by John Parker Sweeney, counsel for the plaintiffs, lasted an hour and kicked off a lively discussion.

Justice to seek death penalty against Charleston church shooter
By ANNA GIARITELLI (@ANNA_GIARITELLI)


Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced Tuesday that the Justice Department would seek the death penalty against Dylann Roof, the suspect in the 2015 shooting at a Charleston, S.C., church.

"Following the department's rigorous review process to thoroughly consider all relevant factual and legal issues, I have determined that the Justice Department will seek the death penalty," she said. "The nature of the alleged crime and resulting harm compelled this decision."

NBC and ABC News Shine Spotlight On Democratic Divide, 15 Percent Of Obama Voters Supporting Trump

It’s a year of complete unpredictability this election cycle. At their own peril, many Republicans wrote off Donald Trump - he’s now the presumptive nominee. Many correctly predicted that Hillary Clinton would win the Democratic Party’s nomination (she's 85 delegates away), though the level of divisions between the Clinton and Sanders camps wasn’t projected to get this intense or fractured. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, like Trump, has amassed a loyal army that doesn’t seem eager to wave the white flag, and a significant chunk aren’t committed to backing Clinton in the general when Sanders is eventually beaten for the nomination come July.
The Sunday morning talk shows put a spotlight on the Democratic civil war that reached a new level of intensity during the chaotic Nevada Democratic Convention in Las Vegas last week. Yes, the vast majority of Sanders supporters will vote for Hillary in November, but 17 percent plan to vote for Donald Trump, according to NBC News’ Chuck Todd. ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos noted that 15 percent of Obama voters plan on voting for Donald Trump.
The Atlantic’s Molly Ball also said on CBS’ Face The Nation that she’s surprised the level of division has become this deep on the Democratic side. Moreover, she added that it’s not just a question about Clinton bringing the party together, but whether she can win over Independents and young voters — core factions in the Sanders army — who have voted for the Vermont senator in those open primary contests — many of whom have been “immune” to Clinton’s hopelessly inauthentic stump speeches. Again, we’re circling back to Hillary Clinton, the campaigner, in which she’s not Bill, and certainly not Barack Obama.
Democrats say the longer Sanders stays in the race, the more his attacks on Clinton will resonate. She’s already facing criticism for being a corrupt, a liar, not transparent, or an amalgam of the three; Sanders is hitting her for refusing to disclose her Wall Street transcripts, while Trump is calling her “crooked Hillary,” an attack that does have cross party appeal.
The Democrats’ conflict is now percolating to down ballot races, with Sanders supporting Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) primary opponent, Tim Canova, who has raised $250,000 since he received the endorsement from the self-described Democratic socialist.
In the meantime, the Republican Party seems to be unifying around Trump at an accelerated rate. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was staunchly anti-Trump in the primaries, but he’s now trying (covertly) to get the rest of the conservative wing to back the billionaire real estate magnate. The key, though moderate, Philly suburbs have taken a liking to Trump in Pennsylvania. The National Rifle Association endorsed Trump at their Annual Meeting last weekend as well. Republicans already have their guy, and the wounds from the primary seem to be healing—while the blood sports continue on the left.






Hillary hasn't driven a car since it was abolished (during Bill C.'s administration BTW)

In 2006, then-Senator Hillary Clinton made an odd suggestion to the National Press Club – a return to the 55 mph national speed limit.

The AutoBlog quotes Clinton as arguing, “The 55-mile speed limit really does lower gas usage. And wherever it can be required, and the people will accept it, we ought to do it.” Even with rising gas prices and pressure from environmentalists, that measure would be disastrous with voters.

The peculiar statement showed then, as it does now, that Clinton is completely out of touch with the American people.
