Obama's Push for Illegal Law Breaking Amensty Texas Border Patrol on Brink of Collapse

Filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch has chronicled the problems along the Mexican border in his documentaries, including his latest: They Come to America II. Lynch sat down with Megyn Kelly to reveal some new information about just how bad things are getting at the Texas border.

Lynch said his information, which comes from “the guys who are down there” on the border, indicates that the Border Patrol there is nearing the point of collapse.

“What they told me is worse than I’ve ever been told before,” said Lynch, adding that he is being told there are a stunning 2,000 arrests of illegal immigrants a day in the Rio Grande Valley.

Lynch said the influx of immigrants from Central America, not Mexico, is becoming more than the Border Patrol in Texas can handle.

“The big driver of it all is the promise of amnesty. That’s what they’re all being told. We’re at the point right now where people are coming across and they’re just handing themselves in because they know they’re not going to be sent back,” said Lynch. “It’s so bad I don’t even know what to say anymore.”

Lynch explained that many illegal immigrants are just being brought to bus depots, where they’re taking buses to whatever area of the U.S. they want.

Goodbye freedom of religion....Colorado Civil Rights Panel Orders Christian Baker To Make Wedding Cakes For Gay Couples

Goodbye freedom of religion....Colorado Civil Rights Panel Orders Christian Baker To Make Wedding Cakes For Gay Couples

DENVER (AP) — Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission on Friday ordered a baker to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples, finding his religious objections to the practice did not trump the state’s anti-discrimination statutes.

The unanimous ruling from the seven-member commission upheld an administrative law judge’s finding in December that Jack Phillips violated civil rights law when he refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in 2012. The couple sued.

“I can believe anything I want, but if I’m going to do business here, I’d ought to not discriminate against people,” Commissioner Raju Jaram said.

Phillips, a devout Christian who owns the Masterpiece Cakeshop in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, said the decision violates his First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of his religion. “I will stand by my convictions until somebody shuts me down,” he told reporters after the ruling.

He added his bakery has been so overwhelmed by supporters eager to buy cookies and brownies that he does not currently make wedding cakes.

The couple who sued Phillips, Dave Mullins and Charlie Craig, were pleased that the commission roundly rejected Phillips’ arguments. “We’re just thrilled by that,” Mullins said.

Gay marriage remains illegal in Colorado. Mullins and Craig were married in Massachusetts and wanted a wedding cake for a reception to celebrate their union back home in Colorado.

Seeing Hillary Clinton live and up close isn’t quite as attractive as her machine thinks; tickets to see her in person at an event in Broomfield, Colorado next week have been reduced from $175 to $59 because the venue is finding buyers hard to come by.

Even with the 66% break in the price, the event, to be held at the 1STBANK Center, which seats between 6,500 and 7,500, has elicited only 200 tickets sold through the discount website, according to Living Social.

Hear Hillary Rodham Clinton Deliver a Keynote Speech

Former Secretary of State & Former US Senator from New York Hillary Rodham Clinton served as the 67th US Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her "smart power" approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century. Earlier, as First Lady and Senator from New York, she was a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero. Now, head to 1STBANK Center to hear her deliver a keynote address on Monday, June 2.

First order for Benghazi committee members: drawing up attack timeline

First order for Benghazi committee members: drawing up attack timeline

FOX News

by Catherine Herridge

Members of the Republican-led Benghazi select committee are getting down to work, with the first order of business a detailed timeline of the attack.

But it already is apparent to some committee members that previous investigations, including the State Department review known as the Accountability Review Board, were not as exhaustive as the administration claimed.

"If you go look at the other reports that were done, whether it be the Accountability Review Board or the Senate case (last January’s intelligence committee report), there are places where they have enough details but many, many gaps in the fact pattern," Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., a West Point graduate who sits on the Benghazi select committee, told Fox News.

"We still don't have all of the facts that surrounded the events of that night. Did the Department of Defense speak to the State Department? Did the State Department have good contacts with our intelligence operations folks?Where was the White House and its National Security staff, that entire team that's responsible?"

A detailed timeline breaks down into three phases, including the well- documented, severe threat environment before the attack as well as the security requests from U.S. personnel in Libya that were denied by the State Department.

"We're going to start from the events that led up to the enormous security failure, and the run-up to September 11, 2012 and then we'll look at the events of that evening, the deaths of four Americans and what could have been done to potentially rescue or at least make an effort as America always has done,” Pompeo said.
“And then the aftermath, what it is that this administration did in the aftermath that didn't provide the American people the real knowledge about the actions that took place in the run-up to the deaths of four Americans."

Pompeo, who also is a member of the House intelligence committee, indicated further investigation was warranted into the administration's flawed explanation immediately after the attack, blaming it on a protest gone awry over an obscure anti-Islam video.

In addition, he alluded to the role of presidential adviser Ben Rhodes, whose September 14, 2012 email stated a goal for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s talks show appearances should be “To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”

The Rhodes email was obtained by the conservative group Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit.

"We know that intelligence analysts on the ground knew instantaneously that this was Al Qaeda and its affiliates who had led this attack,” Pompeo said. “And yet it took an awfully long time, indeed today it's still not clear, (that) this administration has acknowledged the depth and the risks associated with what it means to have anAl Qaeda affiliate actually take down an American (consulate)."

Pompeo said the Republican committee members had met a handful of times, but not yet with the five Democrats recently appointed to the committee by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. One of the Democrats also sits on the House intelligence committee.

"I know Congressman (Adam) Schiff (D-Calif.) pretty well, he is a decent, hard-working man. I am hopeful that he will work just as hard as I do to get to the facts," Pompeo said.

"We have an obligation, not to grandstand, not to create a circus, but to do a thorough investigation and they have a completely matching obligation on their side. This isn't about going after any one person.This isn't about attacking any administration, this is about getting answers for the American people."

Separately, the group Special Operations Speaks, an organization of retired military special operations professionals, has written to the Benghazi select committee chairman, Rep.Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., urging him to further investigate the lack of a significant military response.

"When we as a nation put our people in harm's way, we must do so with the clear knowledge that we have done our very best to provide the support essential to their survival when the chips are down," the group wrote in a May 28 letter.

"This is an American value. That essential trust and confidence was breached in Benghazi and broadcast a very dangerous message to future diplomats, warriors, and citizens."

LOL....More Than 60,000 Low-Income Students In D.C. Area Refusing To Eat Michelle Obama’s School Lunch

More Than 60,000 Low-Income Students In D.C. Area Refusing To Eat Michelle Obama’s School Lunch

A report by local Washington D.C. news station NBC4 indicates that over 60,000 low-income students in the area are skipping lunch, dissatisfied with the food offered to them by their schools.

In Fairfax County, Virginia, which contains much of D.C.’s Virginia suburbs, 16 percent of students eligible for free lunch don’t eat on a typical day. In Washington itself, the figure is 24 percent. In Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland, over a quarter of low-income students don’t eat lunch per day.

The kids’ failure to eat is costing the schools big money, as they lose $3 in federal subsidies every time a student on free lunch forgoes taking a meal. That’s $180,000 a day, adding up to over $32 million in a school year lasting approximately 180 days. School officials say the lost subsidies are straining their budgets, as they need the money to pay for healthier food options mandated by Congress.

Pentagon Directive Outlines Obama’s Policy To Use Military Force Against American Citizens

Pentagon Directive Outlines Obama’s Policy To Use Military Force Against American Citizens

A 2010 Pentagon directive on military support to civilian authorities details what critics say is a troubling policy that envisions the Obama administration’s potential use of military force against Americans.

The directive contains noncontroversial provisions on support to civilian fire and emergency services, special events and the domestic use of the Army Corps of Engineers.

The troubling aspect of the directive outlines presidential authority for the use of military arms and forces, including unarmed drones, in operations against domestic unrest.

“This appears to be the latest step in the administration’s decision to use force within the United States against its citizens,” said a defense official opposed to the directive.

Directive No. 3025.18, “Defense Support of Civil Authorities,” was issued Dec. 29, 2010, and states that U.S. commanders “are provided emergency authority under this directive.”

“Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances unless specifically authorized by the president in accordance with applicable law or permitted under emergency authority,” the directive states.
“In these circumstances, those federal military commanders have the authority, in extraordinary emergency circumstances where prior authorization by the president is impossible and duly constituted local authorities are unable to control the situation, to engage temporarily in activities that are necessary to quell large-scale, unexpected civil disturbances” under two conditions.

The directive states clearly that it is for engaging civilians during times of unrest.

The directive was signed by then-Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn. A copy can be found on the Pentagon website:

Defense analysts say there has been a buildup of military units within non-security-related federal agencies, notably the creation of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams. The buildup has raised questions about whether the Obama administration is undermining civil liberties under the guise of counterterrorism and counternarcotics efforts.

Other agencies with SWAT teams reportedly include the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department.

The militarization of federal agencies, under little-known statues that permit deputization of security officials, comes as the White House has launched verbal attacks on private citizens’ ownership of firearms despite the fact that most gun owners are law-abiding citizens.

A White House National Security Council spokeswoman declined to comment.

Dick Cheney slammed Barack Obama after his foreign policy speech at West Point last night on Hannity.

I know from my own experience in a recent trip through the Middle East spending several days talking with folks I’ve dealt with all the way back to Desert Storm, they are all absolutely convinced that the American capacity to lead and influence events in that part of the world has been dramatically reduced by this president.”

Icy Reception for Obama at West Point – Less Than 25% of Cadets Give Him Standing Ovation- Good Obama does NOT deserve applause

Icy Reception for Obama at West Point – Less Than 25% of Cadets Give Him Standing Ovation

Obama was welcomed by the Black Knight of the Hudson for his speech at West Point on Wednesday, but less than 25 percent of the cadets gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction, the Daily Mail reported.

“Receiving tepid applause and a short standing ovation from less than one-quarter of the audience upon his introduction, Obama argued for a contradictory foreign policy that relies on NATO and the United Nations while insisting that ‘America must always lead on the world stage,’ the paper reported.

During his speech, which the Wall Street Journal called “consistent with that of every post-Cold War administration,” the president also took a swipe at critics, saying: “I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being. But what makes us exceptional is not our ability to flout international norms and the rule of law; it’s our willingness to affirm them through our actions.”

Much of the president’s speech focused on using military force only as a last resort and working with allies to solve global conflicts.

Charles Krauthammer analyzing Barack Obama’s withdrawal plan of U.S. Troops from Afghanistan, calling it a plan of “personal narcissism.”

Charles could not be more right. Obama wants to be the guy who ended two wars. It doesn’t matter one whit to him whether we lose the gains made by our troops or not. Oh, he says it does, but his actions speak louder than his words. We’ve lost the gains made in Iraq because of Obama’s disastrous actions, and now it’s going to happen in Afghanistan.

But as always, Barack Obama is all about Barack Obama. Remember when he said “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”

Friends of Marine jailed in Mexico recall how he saved lives, led by example

Friends of Marine jailed in Mexico recall how he saved lives, led by example

FOX News

The Marine sergeant imprisoned in Mexico since late March saved an untold number of lives thanks to his bravery and leadership during two tours in Afghanistan, combat veteran friends of Andrew Tahmooressi told

Imprisoned in Mexico for allegedly making a wrong turn into Mexico while carrying three weapons, Tahmooressi faces as much as 20 years in prison, even though his guns were legal in the U.S. and there appears to be ample evidence his border crossing was a mistake. While his family waits for his case to wind through the Mexican legal system, three of his fellow Marines reminded that Marines don’t leave another Marine behind.

Mark Podlaski, Sam Vranicar and John Richardson, who all served in Afghanistan with Tahmooressi, share a simmering frustration and anger with the lack of attention paid to their sergeant’s case by the federal government.

“I think John Kerry is completely lazy; I think it’s completely pathetic that our country is this slow to help Andrew when we’re so fast to help other countries,” Vranicar said. “I’ve lost hope in our country.”

“I’ve lost hope in our country.” - Sam Vranicar

Vranicar, 24, of Ocean Beach, Calif., is 100 percent disabled with a traumatic brain injury following an IED explosion while serving in the Marja area of Afghanistan with Tahmooressi. It was Vranicar who suggested Tahmooressi come to the Veterans Administration facility in La Jolla, Calif., for treatment of his post-traumatic stress disorder.

All of the vets agreed that Tahmooressi was a “Marine’s Marine” -- level-headed under fire and leading by example.

They recounted, in their own ways, how Tahmooressi saved the life of a Marine who had lost both legs in an explosion by quickly applying tourniquets and calling in for a helicopter evacuation.

Like Vranicar, Tahmooressi also was involved in an IED attack that destroyed the vehicle he was driving. Richardson, who served in the motor transportation unit, saw first-hand the damage IEDs did to vehicles and the humans inside them.

“There were so many hit in his platoon,” Richardson said. “He was hit with a 100-pound IED while bringing mail back to the platoon.”

Tahmooressi’s IED attack occurred August 1, 2010.

“It was the worst feeling in the world seeing your friend blown up,” Podlaski, 27, now a firefighter in Winston-Salem, N.C., said. “He then went out on patrol later that day.”

Podlaski said Tahmooressi had no desire for recognition. While he deserved a Purple Heart for the explosion that may have been the precursor to traumatic brain injury, he said Tahmooressi stuck it out and did his job. His second brain injury occurred shortly before his discharge in February 2012.

Podlaski said Tahmooressi was changing machine guns on a fighting vehicle when he lost his footing and hit his head on another vehicle.

“He was on the ground unconscious for some time before we found him,” Podlaski said.

Podlaski became furious when he heard how Tahmooressi had been treated in the first Mexican jail he was sent to by having all his limbs shackled.

“I couldn’t believe [what] they did to him and how they treated him like a prisoner of war,” Podlaski said of the stress positions his friend was subjected to.

The perceived lack of attention the U.S. government is paying the Tahmooressi issue, the vets say, is endemic of a growing problem of neglect typically shown combat veterans, which has further been compounded by the simmering VA hospital scandal the Obama administration has been slow to respond to.

“It makes you feel helpless; left out in the rain,” said Podlaski, who also received a combat promotion to sergeant with Tahmooressi.

The vets expressed concern that this neglect of their comrade by the federal government could impact active-duty Marines when they see how they will be treated in civilian life.

“I really don’t believe they do enough for people who stuck their necks out,” Richardson, 24, of Huntsville, Texas, said. “I am so disappointed in the government. This is my brother in arms, my friend, and they don’t care.”

Richardson said he heard the gut-wrenching 911 call Tahmooressi made. where he was asking for help as he approached the customs checkpoint once he realized he was at a point of no return in Mexico.

“He asked his country for help, there were Border Patrol agents right there and nobody helped him,” Richardson said.

“This war took a piece of our souls, and now Andrew has to go through this in Mexico?”

Wild Thing's comment............

It is an outrage and happening so many times to Americans.

If Reagan was president, Mexico wouldn't be able to get this man back to us fast enough out of fear of one or more of their cities being leveled. Because of this "Muppet Show" we have in the white house no one fears us anymore. Makes me sick. Get this man home to his family.

Marine held in Mexico set to tell his story to judge

Marine held in Mexico set to tell his story to judge

FOX News

The U.S. Marine who has been jailed since accidentally crossing into Mexico nearly two months ago with three registered guns will appear before a judge for the first time Wednesday in Tijuana, where his mother says he is ready to face his accusers.

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been held in two Mexican prisons since his arrest, one of which he tried to escape after receiving threats, according to his supporters. On Wednesday at 9 a.m. local time, he'll go before a federal judge in Mexico's sixth-largest city. According to his Tijuana-based attorney, Alejandro Osuna, Tahmooressi will be afforded the chance to tell his story to the judge. The Mexican customs agent and soldiers involved in his arrest will also make statements.

"Justice will prevail, but not because of the truth from the other side." - Jill Tahmooressi, mother of Marine held in Mexico

"I have no confidence in their system," said Tahmooressi's mother, Jill Tahmooressi. "Justice will prevail, but not because of the truth from the other side."

Since his arrest, Andrew has faced death and rape threats, has had his feet and hands shackled and lost weight, according to his mother, who has been able to visit him and speaks with her son by phone several times a week. Speaking from her home in Weston, Fla., the worried mom said her son is relieved that he has the opportunity to state his case in open court and before a judge.

"It's never difficult to tell the truth," Jill Tahmooressi said.

When Andrew Tahmooressi realized that he was entering Mexico with the weapons at the poorly-marked crossing at the San Ysidro checkpoint, Tahmooressi immediately called 911, but was told by American officials that since he was in Mexico there was nothing they could do to help him. One Mexican customs official reportedly was going to accompany Tahmooressi back across the border but was quickly overruled by a soldier.

It is not known if media will be allowed in the federal courtroom at the Paseo de Los Heroes building. The hearing is slated to take place in a small room, with the judge, a court officer, typist, translator, two attorneys and the prosecutor present.

Tahmooressi's attorney, Alejandro Osuna, of Tijuana, said key pieces could begin coming together as the case winds through Mexico's judicial system.

“Andrew said that one of the customs officials offered to escort him back across the border,” Osuna said. “We need to find out what happened at that point."

Osuna said Tahmooressi will question the officers about things they stated during their testimony, and can also rebut statements if he believes that they are lying.

Key details could emerge from tomorrow's hearing, but Jill Tahmooressi said she expects those testifying against her son to all be on the same page

Wild Thing's comment............

This arresting American citizens better stop and better stop now. They give us their BS about how they have laws but at the same time they have yet to respect OUR laws,such as our laws on immigration. So FU Mexico.

Prince Charles Goes Deeper Into Insanity! He Says End Capitalism As We Know It To Save World From Global Warming

End Capitalism As We Know It To Save World From Global Warming

Prince Charles has called for an end to capitalism as we know it in order to save the planet from global warming.

In a speech to business leaders in London, the Prince said that a “fundamental transformation of global capitalism” was necessary in order to halt “dangerously accelerating climate change” that would “bring us to our own destruction”.

He called for companies to focus on “approaches that achieve lasting and meaningful returns” by protecting the environment, improving their employment practices and helping the vulnerable to develop a new “inclusive capitalism”.

In a politically-charged speech at the Inclusive Capitalism conference, the Prince said: “I remember when the Iron Curtain came down there was a certain amount of shouting about the triumph of capitalism over communism. Being somewhat contrary, I didn’t think it was quite as simple as that. I felt that unless the business world considered the social, community and environmental dimensions, we might end up coming full circle.”

Mom Says Her 5-Year-Old Girl Cries When She Has To Eat Michelle Obama’s School Lunch

Mom Says Her 5-Year-Old Girl Cries When She Has To Eat Michelle Obama’s School Lunch

WASHINGTON D.C. (Fox 4) — On Tuesday, First Lady Michelle Obama is expected to fire back against school meal critics who say the program to make school lunches healthier has gone too far.

Michelle Obama will host Republicans at the White House to highlight the success of the lunch guidelines.

However, the School Nutrition Association has been one of the most outspoken against federal guidelines to make school lunches healthier. It is already asking Congress and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to reconsider the whole-grain requirements, keeping the requirement at 50 percent rather than 100 percent. It doesn’t want sodium requirements reduced any further or to force children to take a fruit or a vegetable.

The School Nutrition Association says more children aren’t eating at school because they don’t like the new foods being served.

Michelle Obama, through a spokesperson, says the new standards are working.

A Republican-backed bill making its way through the House would allow schools to opt out of the new standards if they do not meet lunch sale goals for six months.

FOX 4′s Katie Ferrell reported Tuesday morning on the reaction from Kansas City-area parents to the more nutritious school lunches.

Among the comments:

“The food provided as school lunch is not even edible. My 5-year old isn’t picky and she cries if we accidentally forget to pack her lunch,” said Jaye Anne Isom-Moloski on our facebook page.

Wild Thing's comment..............

UPDATE: The CIA Chief in Kabul that was exposed by Obama and His Administration now has to leave Afghanistan

UPDATE: The CIA Chief in Kabul that was exposed by Obama and His Administration now has to leave Afghanistan

Essentially, they listed the name of the “Chief of Station” – meaning the CIA’s top spy in Afghanistan.

CNN’s Jim Acosta reports it is a “really big screw-up.”

It is extremely rare for a US intelligence operative to be outed by the US government. In 2003, someone inside the George W Bush administration exposed the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame, a month after her husband, the diplomat Joe Wilson, had publicly questioned the administration’s case for the Iraq war. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, former chief of staff to then-vice-president Dick Cheney, was convicted of obstruction of justice and perjury in connection with the case.

Members of the CIA's operations arm, called the National Clandestine Service, are typically given cover identities to protect both them and sources they have recruited abroad. A station chief, who manages all CIA operations in a country, is often a senior officer whose true name is known to the host nation and other intelligence agencies. The term "station chief" is sensitive enough, however, that former officers usually are not allowed to use it in their resumés in connection with specific countries, even after their covers have been lifted.

Because the Afghanistan station chief is known to Afghan officials and lives in a heavily guarded compound, he may be able to continue in his job. In 2010 the CIA station chief in Pakistan, Jonathan Bank, was evacuated after local newspapers published his name in connection with a lawsuit, and he was threatened.

All in one day Sat. 5/25/15 Obama flies to Afghanastan...exposes the name of CIA chief in Kabul...uses military for photo op

Obama's administration exposes CIA chief in Kabul which of course puts this person's life in even more danger.


The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.
The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country.

The disclosure marked a rare instance in which a CIA officer working overseas had his cover — the secrecy meant to protect his actual identity — pierced by his own government. The only other recent case came under significantly different circumstances, when former CIA operative Valerie Plame was exposed as officials of the George W. Bush administration sought to discredit her husband, a former ambassador and fierce critic of the decision to invade Iraq.

The Post is withholding the name of the CIA officer at the request of Obama administration officials who warned that the officer and his family could be at risk if the name were published. The CIA and the White House declined to comment.

The CIA officer was one of 15 senior U.S. officials identified as taking part in a military briefing for Obama at Bagram air base, a sprawling military compound north of Kabul.

Karzai refused to meet Obama at Bagram Air Base

Bagram, Afghanistan (AFP) – Afghan President Hamid Karzai was offered a meeting with President Barack Obama at Bagram Air Base outside Kabul but declined, a US official said Sunday.

The official said that Washington was not surprised that the meeting did not work out at short notice, after Obama arrived at the base on a surprise visit after night fell on Sunday.

“As we said, we weren’t planning for a bilateral meeting with President Karzai or a trip to the palace, as this trip is focused on thanking our troops,” the official said.

“We did offer him the opportunity to come to Bagram, but we’re not surprised that it didn’t work on short notice.

I would not meet with Obama either. Karzai is a jerk and should never be trusted, the same with Obama.

Highly Recommended for Tonight....Actors Gary Sinise And Joe Mantegna Understand The Price Of Freedom, Host 25th Memorial Day Concert In D.C.

Sunday, May 25 on PBS from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. for the 2014 National Memorial Day Concert, featuring actress Dianne Wiest, musical artists Danielle Bradbery, Jackie Evancho, Megan Hilty, Anthony Kearns, Jack Everly, and co-hosted for the eighth year by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise.

The 2014 National Memorial Day Concert will feature the stories of John Peck, a critically wounded veteran; Gold Star Mother Ruth Stonesifer, whose son Kristofor was the first to die in Afghanistan; and all those of the Greatest Generation who participated in the D-Day invasion.

Actors Gary Sinise And Joe Mantegna Understand The Price Of Freedom, Host 25th Memorial Day Concert In D.C.

Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna, two of Hollywood’s biggest patriots, are in Washington, D.C., to host the 25th annual Memorial Day concert on the west lawn of the Capitol.

It should be a given that actors, writers, and directors would appreciate the freedoms we enjoy here in America, but too often Hollywood seems to prefer celebrating those who are outspoken against American values, ideals, and even our service members. It’s dumbfounding considering that history teaches us artists are often the first to be silenced by totalitarian governments.

Sinise and Mantegna are two midwesterners who grew up with an understanding of the sacrifices members of our military have made to keep our nation free.

Sinise about his special connection to the troops and he said it really all started with his iconic performance as Lt. Dan in the film Forrest Gump. He has now started a foundation specifically designed to help wounded veterans, especially amputees.
“We have a whole new generation of Lt. Dan’s out there and we’ll highlight one of them at the concert this weekend,” he told me.

Sinese has said that his appreciation for Memorial Day goes back to his childhood in Illinois: “When I was a kid, I loved the Memorial Day parade. Especially saluting the soldiers who had done so much for our country. I was too young to understand the words ‘sacrifice’ and ‘tribute,’ but I knew what a hero was. And that’s what our service members have always been to me.”

Mantegna also grew up in Chicago; having military members in his family instilled a special appreciation for those who have sacrificed for our country:
“I had a lot of military in my family and they all came back from conflicts so there was no immediate attachment to Memorial Day in terms of a day of personal remembrance,” Mantegna said. “And yet, once I did that concert I realized Memorial Day is not just a holiday, it’s our most important holiday because of the sacrifices all these men and women made throughout our history.”

There’s plenty to complain about when it comes to some of the bone-headed, unpatriotic utterances from many of the members of the Hollywood community. But here are two examples of humble men who understand what it means to be truly free, and, sadly, what the cost of that freedom has been.

I know from personal experience there are more men and women like this in Hollywood.

Wild Thing's comment............

Federal Court in Denver Rules Christian Cop Must Attend Mosque To Learn About Islamic Beliefs

Federal Court Rules Christian Cop Must Attend Mosque To Learn About Islamic Beliefs

A panel of federal judges in Denver, in an opinion written by Judge Harris Hartz, found that it is perfectly appropriate for a police chief to order subordinates to attend an Islamic mosque where Muslims “discussed Islamic beliefs, Muhammad, Mecca, and why and how Muslims pray” in addition to encouraging officers “to buy” Islamic books and pamphlets that were for sale.

The ruling came on Thursday from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in a case brought by Capt. Paul Fields, who had been ordered by Tulsa police officials to either go to a special event at the local mosque himself, or order others to do that.

Fields refused based on religious freedom objections and was punished for that.

The judges on the 10th Circuit panel said that was perfectly appropriate.

“This ruling is troubling on so many levels,” said Robert Muise, of the American Freedom Law Center, which has pursued the case since it developed several years ago.

“We have argued throughout this case that Capt. Fields was summarily punished for simply raising and asserting a religious objection to the order mandating attendance at the Islamic event, and that such discriminatory treatment violates the First and 14th Amendments,” he said. “Yet, inexplicably, the 10th Circuit refused to address this main issue on appeal, claiming that it was not raised below.

“The court is wrong, and we intend to seek full court review of this patently erroneous decision,” he said.

“The evidence is overwhelming that the city and its senior police officials wanted to make an example of Capt. Fields by harshly punishing him, a Christian, for objecting on religious grounds to an order compelling attendance at an Islamic event,” said David Yerushalmi, co-founder for the AFLC.

“Consequently, when judges can rewrite the case and the case history to fit the conclusion they seek, as the 10th Circuit has done here, due process is robbed of any meaning,” he said.
“Had a Muslim officer objected to attending a Jewish event to be held at a synagogue on a Saturday and the officer was treated like Capt. Fields, there is little doubt that the entire Tulsa Police Department chain of command would have been fired,” Yerushalmi said.

Memorial Day Weekend “Last Full Measure of Devotion”

Last Full Measure of Devotion

This Memorial Day Weekend, we honor and remember those who gave the “last full measure of devotion” for the freedom and liberty of our nation – and for untold millions around the world.

Posted by Wild Thing at 12:55 AM | Comments (3)

We Will Never Forget Our Warriors

"Tell them, tell them when you get home that I gave all of my tomorrows so they could have today!"

Those are the words on a tombstone, far across the Pacific, of someone who gave up his life for our future.

Were those words uttered so that those of us who are left could just enjoy our lives without "getting involved", or were they written to remind us that the work of freedom and liberty is never done?

Were those words written to suggest to us that it is not our job nor our responsibility to keep alive what they fought and died for, or were they written to remind us that we were given the opportunity of life so that we would continue to defend, and keep alive the memory of what they gave their last full measure for?

Let us here today, tonight, tomorrow, next month and next year - remember these gallant defenders of our freedom.

Most were not heroes as defined by the most hallowed Medal of Honor nor even as defined by the silver or bronze star.

They were ALL Heroes

Yes they were heroes, because without hesitation they fought for our country when they were asked to defend her.

They left their families, friends and good times behind and went to fight for our freedom without hesitation.

Some -- never even fired their weapons because they were killed before they ever reached the beach.

But they were heroes because they were there, ready to fight for America - for family, flag and country.

Most were scared to death as they prepared to meet the enemy. Their stomachs were turned upside down and they prayed to God and wished they were with their moms, dads and sweethearts rather than being where they were.

But they were where they were, fighting an enemy that was threatening their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They were fighting an enemy because they believed in America, they loved Her flag and they wanted to protect Americans' right to worship as they chose.

They were there, without hesitation, fighting for what they believed in and dying for what they believed in so you and I could live the way we choose in a free country. But they did not die so that we would stop fighting for what they believed and died for.

They fought and died knowing that we, the living, would go on fighting for that same freedom, that same country, that same flag and for that same right to worship as we choose. Abraham Lincoln, at Gettysburg, said:

"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth."

It is for us the living to go on defending what they died for. It is for us the living not to allow history to forget what they gave up all their tomorrows for.

If when we attacked Guadalcanal and landed at Salerno, we found that "they" were going to fight back, we didn't give up because they fought back. We continued to fight because we knew our cause was right!

When Americans rode in the landing craft before storming the beaches at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Sicily, Anzio, Normandy, Peleliu, Saipan, Iowa Jima, Okinawa, Inchon and many other places we had never heard of before and when they fought in North Africa, the Philippines, Italy, France, Bastonne, Germany, Korea and Vietnam -- most were scared to death; their stomachs were turned upside down and they wanted to be back home with their loved ones.

But that did not stop them from attacking America's enemies bravely and without hesitation. They fought, and many died, but they did not give up because someone shot back at them.

It is for us the living to continue to defend and keep known what they fought and died for -- what they gave up all of their tomorrows for.

They did not die so that we could become complacent; nor did they die so that when we, the living, reached a single obstacle --- we should quit

They died knowing that we would go on defending their actions, defending history and defending what they gave up all their tomorrow's for.

If WE don't remember ---if WE don't defend what they fought and died for and what we fought for -- who will remember? Who will care?

How many of them and you who fought for our flag and our country and remember the feeling as Old Glory" was being raised over a piece of land we fought for ---- and many died for?

How many remember seeing or hearing about our valiant warriors, who were fighting on Iowa Jima, as they stood and cheered when they saw the flag being raised over Mt. Suribachi.

We take this time on Memorial Day to salute our Fallen Heroes who through the history of our country have fought and died for all of us.

-- Thank you , Wild Thing

Obama State Department Promotes Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa On Killing of U.S. Soldiers

Obama State Department Promotes Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa On Killing of U.S. Soldiers

The State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau promoted on Friday a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

The CT bureau on Friday tweeted out a link to the official website of Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a controversial organization founded by a Muslim Brotherhood leader “who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S.,” according to Fox News.

Bin Bayyah is reported to have been one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa that endorsed resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq, PJ Media reported in 2013, when Bin Bayyah met with Obama’s National Security Council staff at the White House.

Corrupt Liberal Judge Orders Michigan Officials to Place Congressman John Conyers on Primary Ballot

Judge Orders Michigan Officials to Place Congressman John Conyers on Primary Ballot

Of course. A federal judge (nominated by President Obama in 2013) orders Michigan officials to put Conyers on the ballot saying the Congressman had enough valid signatures. Only problem is, he didn't have enough signatures according to the Wayne county clerk's office

The circulators who were gathering signatures for Congressman Conyers were not registered to vote which is a violation of state election law. It makes all the signatures collected invalid.


A federal judge has ordered Michigan officials to place U.S. Rep. John Conyers back on the state's primary ballot.

State election officials had said the Democratic lawmaker had fallen short of requirements to make the ballot because two people collecting signatures for him were not registered voters, as required by state law.

Conyers, 85, has served in Congress since the mid 1960s, and was planning to seek reelection as a write-in candidate, if his ballot appeal was denied.

The primary is August 5. The district court order handed down on Friday concluded that Conyers had enough valid signatures to qualify for inclusion on the ballot.

Conyers is the second-most senior member of the House behind Rep. John Dingell, also from Michigan, who announced earlier this year he would retire after serving 58 years

Wild Thing's comment.......

One big thing we have seen far too much of ......liberal judges that over turn our votes such as the many gay marriage bans that various states have voted for being overturned by a liberal judge.

I will never forget the Judge that many years ago overturned our votes for 187 to stop illegals from getting handouts from the government in California. Our vote ended up meaning nothing.

And add to that this judge in this post that has made it possible for Conyers to be on the ballot even though in doing so it is against the laws and illegal.

Scientists rebut Obama and His Administration Scam on Global Warming

Scientists rebut Obama Administration’s “National Climate Assessment”

Yes, that’s right … scientists. Here’s their opening. As you’ll see, they don’t mince words nor do they show much respect for the nonsense spouted in the NCA or those who produced it. And I don’t blame them:

The National Climate Assessment – 2014 (NCA) is a masterpiece of marketing that shows for the first time the full capabilities of the Obama Administration to spin a scientific topic as they see fit, without regard to the underlying facts. With hundreds of pages written by hundreds of captive scientists and marketing specialists, the administration presents their case for extreme climate alarm.

As independent scientists, we know that apparent evidence of “Climate Change,”however scary, is not proof of anything. Science derives its objectivity from robust logic and honest evidence repeatedly tested by all knowledgeable scientists, not just those paid to support the administration’s version of “Global Warming,” “Climate Change,” “Climate Disruption,” or whatever their marketing specialists call it today.

We are asked to believe that humans are drastically changing the earth’s climate by burning fossil fuels. The problem with their theory is very simple:

It is NOT true.

Here we address the administration’s basic thesis and the essential evidence that they claim support extreme concern. The theory of ‘Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming’ (CAGW) is based on a string of inferences that begins with the assumptions that carbon dioxide is a ‘greenhouse gas’ and that we are slowly driving up the atmospheric concentration by burning fossil fuels. It is therefore claimed as self-evident that the Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) has already risen significantly and will continue to do so.

Higher GAST is then presumed to lead to all sorts of negative consequences, especially Extreme Weather. They promote their ‘Climate Models’ as a reliable way to predict the future climate. But these models dramatically fail basic verification tests. Nowhere do they admit to these well-known failures. Instead, we are led to believe that their climate models are close to perfection.

This document is structured around a “fact-check,” where we quote a number of the government’s key claims in the NCA and show each to be invalid. The first three claims involve their three crucial scientific arguments (Three Lines of Evidence or 3 LoE), which, if valid, would satisfy a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for making their case. But each is easily shown to be false; and because each is crucial, their entire theory collapses. That means that all of the overblown “Climate Disruption” evidence that they mention, whether true or not, cannot be tied back to man’s burning of fossil fuels. Hence, efforts to reduce or eliminate Extreme Weather by reducing the burning of fossil fuels are completely nonsensical.

They then present a point by point rebuttal of the “3 LoE”, pointing to evidence that shows them to be demonstrably false. And, as they point out, since those 3 LoE are the foundation of the CAGW theory, the theory collapses.

“As independent scientists, we know that apparent evidence of ‘Climate Change,’ however scary, is not proof of anything, Science derives its objectivity from robust logic and honest evidence repeatedly tested by all knowledgeable scientists, not just those paid to support the administration’s version of ‘Global Warming,’ ‘Climate Change,’ ‘Climate Disruption,’ or whatever their marketing specialists call it today."

Senator Marco Rubio: Democrats' blocking VA accountability bill 'outrageous'

Rubio: Democrats' blocking VA accountability bill 'outrageous'

Marco Rubio excoriates Bernie Sanders and Senate Democrats who blocked his bill to increase accountability at the VA.

Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) asked for consent to take up and pass the Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act, a bill that would make it easier/possible for the scandal-plagued department to fire employees based on poor performance. The House overwhelmingly passed the legislation on Wednesday, with a bipartisan vote of 390 to 33. (Only Democrats objected.)

Surely the Senate would follow suit, right? Not exactly. Senator Bernie Sanders, a union-backed socialist from Vermont, objected on behalf of Senate Democrats to Rubio’s request. Instead of taking any action now, Sanders said he is going to hold a hearing—several weeks from now.

Sanders, who chairs the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, has been one of the most outspoken defenders of the VA against allegations of misconduct. When asked about reports of multiple deaths related to long wait times at the VA healthcare system, Sanders told CNN: “People die every day.”

New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer Threatens Boehner: You Have Six Weeks To Pass Amnesty Or Obama Will Start Issuing Executive Orders

Schumer Threatens Boehner: You Have Six Weeks To Pass Amnesty Or Obama Will Start Issuing Executive Orders

Democrats have a new message for House Republicans who have been reluctant to take up a comprehensive immigration reform bill this year: Pass a bill in six weeks, or watch the White House take action on its own.

Four Senate Democratic leaders told reporters on Thursday they want House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to bring legislation to the floor “before the August break,” or else President Obama would begin taking executive action on immigration issues.

“Here is the bottom line,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said. “They have about a six-week window, from June 10 after the last Republican primary till the August recess. If they don’t pass immigration reform then, the president will have no choice but to act on his own.”

Democrats said they would not accept piecemeal legislation, either, despite Boehner’s promise to take up immigration reform in increments.

“We are not going to go along with minor fixes that fail to address the huge systematic problems of our immigration system today,” Schumer said.

Wild Thing's comment.........

The left always make threats, heck why not when the threats start at the top from Obama, others on the left see they can get away with it.

I was just thinking what if our side started to threaten the left for a change, big time. And mean it!

The entire reason the left want amnesty is they are worried about the elections coming up and they know the illegals if they do vote will for democrat.

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Using Tax Payer Funds and Violating House Rules By Screening Anti-Koch Brothers Movie In The Capitol Building

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Violating House Rules By Screening Anti-Koch Brothers Movie In The Capitol Building

The show must go on — unless it breaks congressional rules.

Rep. Candice Miller, the chairwoman of the House Administration Committee, wrote to Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Monday saying a scheduled film screening of an anti-Koch brothers movie in the Capitol Visitor Center is violating House and Senate rules.

The screening for “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition” is scheduled for Tuesday evening and both Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) will participate in a question and answer session for the film.

But, in letter obtained by POLITICO, Miller (R-Mich.) wrote that she has “several serious concerns” that using the Capitol Visitor Center for the film “may cross the line into partisan politics.”

Rules created by the House and Senate committees charged with administration of the Capitol complex state that “no audio visual presentations in the CVC may premiere, preview, showcase, or publicize a film.”

“We cannot hold partisan political rallies or fundraisers on the grounds of the Capitol, or within its walls. Our work in this hallowed building must solely be in the interests of the American people and not int the interests of any political cause,” Miller wrote.

Catholic Notre Dame University Rejects Pro-Traditional Marriage Student Group

Catholic Notre Dame University Rejects Pro-Traditional Marriage Student Group

A relatively new student group at the University of Notre Dame formed to defend traditional marriage has been denied official recognition as a campus club at the Catholic institution.

The decision to reject Students for Child-Oriented Policy was made first by the Club Coordination Council, a branch of Notre Dame’s student government, then ratified recently by Margaret Hnatusko, director of the student activities office.

“In evaluating a proposal, approval is based is on several things,” Hnatusko explained in her April 30 denial letter. “We consider the general purpose of a club, uniqueness to campus, proposed activities, a clear constitution, a strong understanding of budget planning, projected membership, opportunity for membership among other things.”

“The … mission of your club closely mirrored that of other undergraduate-student clubs on campus which served the intended interests of this club,” she continued. “As such, the Club Coordination Council felt there was not a need for another similar type club. … I regret to inform you that Students for Child-Oriented Policy will not be recognized by the Student Activities Office as a university student club.”

But the decision comes after Students for Child-Oriented Policy has been embroiled in an ongoing battle at Notre Dame over the university’s apparent apathy over the battle to support traditional marriage, as well as the Catholic college’s recent and strong support for the homosexual community.

During the 2013-14 school year at Notre Dame, a gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning student group called PrismND was established, hosting events on “National Coming Out Day” that encouraged students to “come out.”

Russian prime minister warns Obama is bringing the world to the brink of 'a second Cold War that nobody needs'

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has blasted the Obama administration for bringing the world to the brink of ‘a second Cold War that nobody needs.’

In a videotaped interview published Tuesday, he told Bloomberg Television that ‘we are slowly but surely approaching a second cold war,’ in part because President Barack Obama ‘could be more tactful politically.’

Seated at his private residence outside Moscow and speaking through an English translator, Medvedev blasted Obama for leveling sanctions at the Russian government and its wealthiest oligarchs.

‘Let’s be honest: Those sanctions are a sharp knife for European business,’ he claimed. ‘And American business doesn’t need them either. The only ones who want sanctions are politicians, who use them to reinforce their convictions and demonstrate their power.’

We are stuck with a community organizer with a communist/socialist/Marxist agenda.One thing for sure at least these enemies of our love their own country but Obama instead is OUR enemy and the enemy of our country.

Jay Carney Dredges Up His Standard LIE for Obama and says Obama only Learned about V.A. Scandal “through News Reports”

Jay Carney should come up with a different lie. Obama learned about the problems at the Veterans Administration through “news reports.”

We were told by Jay Carney that Obama knew nothing about Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting of Conservatives, the AP Phone Record Scandal, etc. etc. In all these cases, Obama just found out “through news reports.”

American Legion Slams White House for Distorting Statement on Veterans Controversy

American Legion Slams White House for Distorting Statement on Veterans Controversy

ABC News

At the White House briefing today, Press Secretary Jay Carney repeatedly suggested the American Legion had praised the Department of Veterans Affairs for the resignation Friday of top VA health official Dr. Robert Petzel.

It turns out, however, the American legion had issued a statement dismissing the resignation as “business as usual.”

Here’s what Carney said at the White House briefing: “The American Legion said that the group looks at Petzel’s resignation as a, quote, step towards addressing the leadership problem at the VA. So I think that undercuts the assertion that that is not a meaningful development.”

Carney went on to cite the American Legion nine times during the briefing.

In fact, the American Legion put out a statement on Friday about Dr. Petzel’s resignation saying almost exactly the opposite of what Carney suggested.

“This move by VA is not a corrective action, but a continuation of business as usual,” American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger said in a statement. “Dr. Petzel was already scheduled to retire this year, so his resignation now really won’t make that much of a difference.”

The statement — which can be found on the at the top of the American Legion’s website — goes on to say the real problem is at the top of VA. “Secretary [Eric] Shinseki and Under Secretary [Allison] Hickey remain on the job. They are both part of VA’s leadership problem, and we want them to resign as soon as possible.”

Texas Man Gets Ticket From Red Light Camera; His Response Will Make Lovers Of The Constitution Proud!

Texas Man Gets Ticket From Red Light Camera; His Response Will Make Lovers Of The Constitution Proud!

A Texan, apparently, isn’t easily accepting the ticket he got in the mail after a camera allegedly caught him in a traffic violation. He penned a cheeky letter, citing constitutional violations and even a mathematical formula to show why he thinks the case should be dropped. But an officer with the camera division says there may be a flaw in his argument.

“As per the instructions, I’m writing to plead ‘not guilty’ to this charge,” the alleged Plano resident, who lives in a Dallas suburb and wrote the infraction occurred on March 20, said. “Although this option is said to result in this matter going to court; it is my suggestion that the charges simply be dropped. This suggestion comes out of respect for tax payers, and my request that their hard earned money not be wasted in such proceedings.”

The letter, posted to Reddit under the title “This is how my brother tries to get out of a speeding ticket,” then goes through the man’s reasoning.

“There is no evidence of my involvement with this alleged ‘crime,’ as well as the fact that I am not granted my 6th amendment right to face my ‘accuser’ (a camera); I see no way the government could prove my guilt beyond a reasonable doubt,” he continued. “I also see […] no legal requirement for me to implicate someone else in this process, as it is the government’s responsibility to prove a person’s guilt. It is also my 5th amendment right to remain silent on the matter.”

Should the case proceed to court, the man requested evidence from the prosecution and all maintenance records from the camera that allegedly caught his infraction. He also wrote that he wanted records for the traffic light itself, which he wrote based on a video he watch lasted only three seconds, “50 [percent] less of what it should for a zone of 40 mph speed limit.

Drunk Illegal Alien Driving on Wrong Side of Highway Kills Arizona Officer

Drunk Illegal Alien Driving on Wrong Side of Highway Kills Arizona Officer

An illegal alien killed a police office while driving the wrong way in on an Arizona freeway.

Raul Silva Corona had driven a staggering 35 miles in the wrong direction on three freeways with a blood alcohol level of .238 percent — three times the legal limit — in the wee hours of Monday morning before he killed Mesa Police Officer Brandon Mendoza in a fiery crash , the Associated Press reported Friday.

In Arizona, a driver is considered intoxicated with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent.

Mendoza, 32, who served for thirteen years at the Mesa Police Department, was on his way home from work.

Customs and Immigration Enforcement told the AP that Corona, who was also killed in the crash, was from Mexico and in the country illegally.

This was not the first time Corona had broken the law. The AP notes that in 1994 Corona plead guilty to a criminal conspiracy charge in Colorado, and prosecutors dismissed other charges of burglary, assault, and leaving the scene of an accident.

At press time, Colorado authorities had not responded to Top Right News’ query as to why Corona had been treated so leniently and not at that time been reported to Federal immigration authorities for deportation, which might have prevented this week’s tragedy.

News of the horrific accident comes as Americans express outrage at a recent report revealing that last year ICE released more than 36,000 criminal illegal aliens convicted of nearly 88,000 crimes.

According to the document, 16,070 of those convictions were from drunk or drugged driving.

Today, Officer — now Sgt. Mendoza (as he was posthumously promoted), was laid to rest in Arizona. Yet another victim of the Federal failure to secure our border and enforce immigration laws.

Trey Gowdy has filled key position on House Select Committee

To lead the Republican majority staff, Gowdy selected Philip Kiko, a key aide to Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., when the latter served as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and more recently a registered lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, a K Street lobbying firm with a diverse roster of clients.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, swiftly welcomed Gowdy’s choice, calling Kiko “a man of unquestioned integrity with a record of distinguished service” in and out of Congress. “His appointment today is further proof of Chairman Gowdy’s commitment to an investigation that is serious, fact-based, and professional,” Boehner said in a statement, adding: “There is no better person to help lead this effort than Phil.”

The Internet's 51 New Regulators

The Internet's 51 New Regulators

The FCC goes ahead with its plan to control Web pricing.

The Wall Street Journal

Think of this as ObamaCare for the Web: enact an unworkable system and then get busy issuing waivers to prevent the new system from operating as designed.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler went ahead with his proposal on Thursday to give his agency the power to decide whether the terms and prices of broadband Internet services are "reasonable." That's bad enough as political discretion, but according to dissenting Commissioner Ajit Pai, regulators from every state will also be able to get into the act.

Mr. Wheeler's goal is to satisfy the "net neutrality" supporters demanding that every broadband customer receive the same deal, no matter how much bandwidth they consume. Backed by two other Democrats, Mr. Wheeler said he prefers the "reasonable" pricing standard. But he also suggested another, even worse option to regulate broadband prices: reclassifying Internet connections as "telecommunications services."

For two decades Congress has wisely refused to give the FCC the same power over the Internet that it holds over the telephone system. And for two decades the Internet has enabled a gusher of creativity that was unimaginable over a century of regulated telephony. Mr. Wheeler's brainstorm to change all this is simply to pretend the Internet is a phone network.

This would apply to today's broadband networks common-carrier rules that were designed for monopoly telephone companies—and created decades before the inventors of smart phones and social media were even born. Since this designation would automatically impose myriad obligations that have nothing to do with current customer needs—and that many modern firms could not possibly fulfill—the commission would then have to issue a flurry of exemptions ("forbearance" in FCC parlance) to prevent chaos in the market for Internet connections.

Think of this as ObamaCare for the Web: enact an unworkable system and then get busy issuing waivers to prevent the new system from operating as designed.

GOP Commissioner Michael O'Rielly, who also dissented, notes that the FCC's net-neutrality campaign "rests on a faulty foundation of make-believe statutory authority." But even if the FCC can persuade federal courts to accept one of its methods to assert control over the Internet, that still doesn't mean the agency can satisfy the net-neutrality crowd.

That's because for all the complexity and lawyering the new regulations would bring, no law has ever said carriers can't charge different prices for different services. If Google and Netflix want to push a lot of content over the Internet and ensure its smooth delivery to customers, they will need to pay more than the start-up sending the occasional packet of data.

Yet net-neutrality supporters have cast their campaign as a cause on behalf of start-ups. The fear is that big broadband companies will block access to small websites. Mr. Wheeler's FCC claims "there are no rules on the books to prevent broadband providers from limiting Internet openness by blocking content or discriminating against consumers and entrepreneurs online." But this is false. As former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell has noted, the Federal Trade Commission already has ample authority to go after businesses that mistreat customers, online or off.

The one sure result if telecom regulation is applied to the Internet is that fewer new networks will be built, and fewer start-ups will even try. The FCC will now await public comment on its two regulatory alternatives before it writes a final rule. As wireless Internet entrepreneur Brett Glass tweeted after the FCC vote: "May need to try selling my business before anything like this can be enacted."

Obama’s big carbon crackdown readies for launch

Obama’s big carbon crackdown readies for launch

The EPA will launch the most dramatic anti-pollution regulation in a generation early next month, a sweeping crackdown on carbon that offers President Barack Obama his last real shot at a legacy on climate change — while causing significant political peril for red-state Democrats.

The move could produce a dramatic makeover of the power industry, shifting it away from coal-burning plants toward natural gas, solar and wind. While this is the big move environmentalists have been yearning for, it also has major political implications in November for a president already under fire for what the GOP is branding a job-killing “War on Coal,” and promises to be an election issue in energy-producing states such as West Virginia, Kentucky and Louisiana.

“This rule is the most significant climate action this administration will take,” said Kyle Aarons at the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, one of a host of groups awaiting the rule’s release. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) has urged the EPA to “go ahead boldly” with the rule, saying the agency must step in where Congress has refused to act.

But for coal country, the rule is yet another indignity for an industry already facing a wave of power plant shutdowns amid hostile market forces and a series of separate EPA air regulations. Coal-state Democrats like West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin have joined the criticism, echoing industry warnings that the fossil fuel was crucial to keeping the lights on in much of the U.S. during this past brutal winter.

Studies prove that a Carbon Tax will drive up energy cost which would drive the U.S. economy deeper into stagnation. But that hasn’t prevented Progressives in Congress from pushing it as the solution to fighting fictional man made Climate Change.

Jeb Bush: I Would Govern Like Liberal Lyndon Johnson As President

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the “Great Society,” if he were elected president.

According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy.

Bush did not address Johnson’s Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, “We had a war on poverty, and poverty won.”

Rush Limbaugh’s first children’s book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,” earned him the Author of the Year award from the Children’s Book Council

Limbaugh’s book has touched a lot of readers.

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, you are listening to your harmless, lovable, little fuzzball host, Rush Limbaugh, well-known radio raconteur bon vivant, and now children’s book Author of the Year. The awards were handed out last night by the Children’s Book Council, and I want to take a moment here to thank everyone in the audience, particularly the young people who voted. This is an award where the readers determine the winners.

Kathryn and I flew up after the program yesterday to New York for the awards banquet, the event. This is the seventh annual. It’s relatively new, and it’s combined with the children’s literacy project, and what a great evening. It was a wonderful event, and I had, honestly, to make sure you understand, no expectation of winning this thing. When they announced my name I was momentarily frozen. We were sitting in the front row with a couple people from Simon & Schuster, the well known publishing house. Mitchell Ivers and Jean Anne Rose, they were there with us. It was just a really, really nice event.

“American history is profound,” Rush said Thursday. “The people who came here originally — discovered, founded, explored, built this country — are some of the most incredible people who’ve ever lived. And they are worth knowing. What they did is worth understanding and appreciating. And that’s the objective of these books.”

George Soros Gave $6.1 Million To Liberal Groups Whose Pressure Led IRS To Target Conservative Nonprofits

Soros Gave $6.1 Million To Liberal Groups Whose Pressure Led IRS To Target Conservative Nonprofits

As IRS efforts targeting politically-conservative groups gained momentum, George Soros-funded liberal groups repeatedly called on the IRS to investigate conservative nonprofit organizations.

While the first reported instances of extra IRS scrutiny for conservative groups began in Cincinnati in March of 2010, the attacks began to pick up steam on a national level soon after Soros-funded groups began firing off letters to the IRS in October of that year – following the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.

The talking points of these groups then bounced around a carefully created progressive “echo chamber,” until they eventually made their way into established media outlets. Key IRS policy changes about how it investigated conservative groups took place soon after it received three separate letters sent by Soros-funded liberal organizations.

Several Soros-funded groups including the Campaign Legal Center, Democracy 21, the Center for Public Integrity, Mother Jones and Alternet have worked to pressure the IRS to target conservative nonprofit groups. The subsequent IRS investigation flagged more than 100 tea party-related applications for higher scrutiny, including applications that included the words “Tea Party” and “patriot.”

The IRS scandal can be traced back to a series of letters that the liberal groups Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and Democracy 21 sent to the IRS back in 2010 and 2011. Both groups were funded by George’s Soros’s Open Society Foundations. The CLC received $677,000 and Democracy 21 got $365,000 from the Soros-backed foundation, according to the Foundation’s 990 tax forms.

The letters specifically targeted conservative Super PACs like Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS, asking the IRS to scrutinize them more thoroughly to determine whether or not they should retain their tax-exempt status.

Hero Cat Saves Young Boy From Dog Attack In Bakersfield

Hero cat saves child from dog attack

A boy and his mother were in their front yard, playing and watering the plants. The neighbor's dog was let out of its backyard enclosure, seemingly by accident. The dog spotted the boy from across the yard and stalked up behind him. The boy never saw the attack coming. The dog clamped on to his leg and began dragging the boy. That's when the family's cat took action.

Not only did Tara the cat hurl itself at the dog, but she chased him down the street. Thankfully my son is fine!" Roger Triantafilo said in the description of the surveillance video footage he posted on YouTube.

Catholic Cardinal: Obamacare Regulation “Violates God’s Law”

Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the archbishop of Boston and chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, said on Tuesday that the regulation issued by the Obama Administration under the Affordable Care Act that requires health insurance plans to cover contraceptives, sterilizations, and abortion-inducing drugs “violates God’s law.”

“The regulations that impose abortion and sterilizations, this is a violation of God’s law,” Cardinal O’Malley told

The cardinal also said that whether Americans should obey this “unjust” mandate and whether Catholic members of Congress could vote for a bill that funded its implementation were “complicated issues.”

Consumers frustrated by Obamacare as they find their doctors are not included

Consumers frustrated by new health plans as they find their doctors are not included

Some consumers who bought insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care law are experiencing buyer’s remorse after realizing that their longtime doctors aren’t accepting the new plans.

Before the law took effect, experts warned that narrow networks could impact patients’ access to care, especially in cheaper plans. But with insurance cards now in hand, consumers are finding their access limited across all price ranges — sometimes even after they were told their plan would include their current doctor.

Michelle Pool is one of those customers. Before enrolling in a new health plan on California’s exchange, she checked whether her longtime primary care doctor was covered. Pool, a 60-year-old diabetic who has had back surgery and a hip replacement, purchased the plan only to find that the insurer was mistaken.

Her $352 a month gold plan was cheaper than what she’d paid under her husband’s insurance and seemed like a good deal because of her numerous pre-existing conditions. But after her insurance card came in the mail, the Vista, California resident learned her doctor wasn’t taking her new insurance.

“It’s not fun when you’ve had a doctor for years and years that you can confide in and he knows you,” Pool said. “I’m extremely discouraged. I’m stuck.”

The dilemma undercuts President Obama’s 2009 pledge that: “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.” Consumer frustration over losing doctors comes as the Obama administration is still celebrating a victory with more than 8 million enrollees in its first year.

Obama White Housae Caught in Another LIE- IRS Scandal originated out of Washington – not Cincinnati

IRS Scandal originated out of Washington – not Cincinnati

Judicial Watch released emails obtained through FOIA requests that show the IRS Scandal originated out of Washington – not Cincinnati.

Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch today released a new batch of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents revealing that its handling of Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s headquarters in Washington, DC. The documents also show extensive pressure on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative-leaning tax-exempt organizations. The IRS’ emails by Lois Lerner detail her misleading explanations to investigators about the targeting of Tea Party organizations.

The documents came in response to an October 2013 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the agency refused to respond to four FOIA requests dating back to May 2013 (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:13-cv-01559)).

One key email string from July 2012 confirms that IRS Tea Party scrutiny was directed from Washington, DC. On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky “to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.” Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati and Sharon Camarillo was a Senior Manager in their Los Angeles office. Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, DC, responds:

EOT is working the Tea party applications in coordination with Cincy. We are developing a few applications here in DC and providing copies of our development letters with the agent to use as examples in the development of their cases. Chip Hull [another lawyer in IRS headquarters] is working these cases in EOT and working with the agent in Cincy, so any communication should include him as well. Because the Tea party applications are the subject of an SCR [Sensitive Case Report], we cannot resolve any of the cases without coordinating with Rob.

The reference to Rob is believed to be Rob Choi, then-Director of Rulings and Agreements in IRS’s Washington, DC, headquarters.

Disgusting Obama: Enforcing Our Immigration Laws Is “Not Smart. It Doesn’t Make Sense”

Obama: Enforcing Our Immigration Laws Is “Not Smart. It Doesn’t Make Sense”

Enforcing immigration law “isn’t smart,” President Barack Obama told law enforcement officials Tuesday, just one day after the public learned he had released 36,007 illegal-immigrant murderers, rapists, thieves and other criminals into the nation’s communities.

Cops should be going after major criminals, not the many illegal immigrants that are quietly living in their districts, said Obama, who has twice sworn to uphold the nation’s laws.

“You’ve got to spend time dealing with somebody who is not causing any other trouble other than the fact that they were trying to make a living for their families,” Obama said.

“That’s just not a good use of our resources. It’s not smart. It doesn’t make sense,” said Obama, who has already directed immigration police to minimize enforcement of illegal living far from the bordei.

Obama: We Only Have “Two To Three Months” Left To Pass Amnesty

Barack Obama believes there may only be three months left to get sweeping amnesty legislation done.

At a Tuesday meeting at the Eisenhower Office Building with law enforcement leaders, White House officials, and Jeh Johnson, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Obama said there was a “very narrow window” to pass amnesty legislation and “the closer we get to midterm elections the harder it will be to get things done,” according to pool reports.

“We’ve got maybe a window of two to three months to get the ball rolling in the House of Representatives,” Obama said.

Twenty-two senators recently denounced Obama in a letter for threatening the "entire constitutional system" by essentially nullifying the nation's immigration laws.

"Your actions demonstrate an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and legal residents," the senators wrote in a letter to Obama. "Our entire constitutional system is threatened when the Executive Branch suspends the law at its whim and our nation’s sovereignty is imperiled when the commander-in-chief refuses to defend the integrity of its borders."

Texas Gun Store Marquee: ‘I Like My Guns Like Obama Likes His Voters…’

Texas Gun Store Marquee: ‘I Like My Guns Like Obama Likes His Voters…’

A gun store outside of Houston, Texas went for some LULZ with its front marquee this week, at the expense of its characterization of President Barack Obama’s electoral demographic.

The sign out front of Katy, TX’s Tactical Firearms reads, “I like my guns like Obama likes his voters: undocumented.”

Tactical Firearms changes its sign every week, and the one-liners usually come from the staff. According to the owner, this week’s sign is reference to the fact that Texas does not require firearm registration. “Thank god for our First and Second Amendment rights,” he said in a statement to local news agencies. “It’s meant as a joke. It’s meant to be funny.”

This is not Tactical Firearms’ first foray into the politics of gun control. Last fall the shop hosted a debate among then-CNN host Piers Morgan, Ted Nugent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, and State Senator Dan Patrick.

Obama Releases Thousands of Convicted Crinimals (including murderers and those convicted of sexual assault)

Thousands of convicted criminals freed while awaiting deportation proceedings

Fox News

The Obama administration released thousands of convicted criminals -- including murderers and those convicted of sexual assault -- while they were awaiting deportation proceedings, according to a new report.

The Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based advocacy group, released the statistics on Monday, in its latest bid to draw attention to what analysts with the organization say are lax enforcement practices by the Obama administration.

The numbers showed that in 2013, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,007 "convicted criminal aliens" while they were waiting for the outcome of their deportation cases. They represented a total of 88,000 convictions.

The majority of the cases involved individuals convicted on lower-level or nonviolent offenses, like auto theft, drunk-driving and drug charges. But many were involved in more serious cases.

According to the report, the 88,000 convictions included:

-- 193 homicide convictions

-- 426 sexual assault convictions

-- 303 kidnapping convictions

-- More than 1,000 aggravated assault convictions

Jessica Vaughan, the group's director of policy studies, said in a statement she was "astonished" by the figures. Referring to an ongoing Department of Homeland Security review of deportation policies, she said any "further relaxation of enforcement" would be "hard to justify" in light of the statistics.

"Congress should resist further action on immigration reform until the public can be assured that enforcement is more robust and that ICE can better deal with its criminal alien caseload without setting them free in our communities," she added.

ICE defended its enforcement practices when asked about the report, and said in a statement that many of those cited were released "under restrictions such as GPS monitoring, telephone monitoring, supervision, or surety bond."

Further, the statement said the agency was required by law to release some of those individuals.
"The releases required by court decisions account for a disproportionate number of the serious crimes listed in the report. For example, mandatory releases account for over 75% of the homicides listed," ICE said.

The individuals in question were reportedly released on bond or on parole or under various other alternatives to detention while awaiting processing.

The same organization that published the data put out a separate report more than a month ago that showed ICE agents were opting not to deport thousands of "criminal aliens." These are separate from the cases detailed in the latest study.

According to that prior report, ICE released 68,000 foreign nationals in 2013 who either had criminal convictions or charges against them.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, though, accused CIS of distorting the numbers, and claimed that some of them could represent minor offenses. Further, the agency said a total of 216,000 "convicted criminals" were removed in 2013.

I doubt Obama will deport most or any of them, he wants their votes for his fellow dems in the next election.

Stupid! White House’s Newly Installed Solar Panels Will Generate Power For A Total of Six Lightbulbs

White House’s Newly Installed Solar Panels Will Generate Power For A Total of Six Lightbulbs

A solar panel array now adorns the roof of the White House and will produce an elephantine amount of solar power when the sun is actually shining: 6.3 kilowatts.

If 6.3 kilowatts sounds like a lot of energy, it isn’t. The average home consumes 27 kilowatts of power each day. Far more than the 6.3 kilowatts that will be produced by the new solar panels adorning the White House. According to TradeWind Energy, “one 50-watt light bulb running for 20 hours will use one kilowatt-hour of electricity (50 watts x 20 hours = 1,000 watt-hours = 1 kWh).”

In other words, the White House installed enough solar panels to power six 50-watt bulbs for 20 hours each day.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Says The Military Needs? Transsexuals

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Sunday he believes the military’s ban on transgender Americans serving in the armed forces “should be reviewed.”

While the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was repealed in 2010, transgender individuals are still prohibited from serving.

In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Hagel said he’s “open” to reconsidering the ban.

“I do think it continually should be reviewed,” he told ABC’s Martha Raddatz. “I’m open to those assessments, because, again, I go back to the bottom line, every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it.”

Hagel said his biggest area concern with reforming the policy is being able to provide medical support to transgender troops, especially for those in what he called “austere locations.”

Obama’s Minimum Wage Order Results In Veterans Getting Booted From Nursing Homes - Shreveport, LA News, Weather and Sports

Obama’s Minimum Wage Order Results In Veterans Getting Booted From Nursing Homes


Some military veterans are being forced to leave their nursing home. It’s an unintended consequence of President Obama’s executive order in February to raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour.

Sandy Franks, public affairs officer at Shreveport’s Overton Brooks V. A. Medical Center, explains that nursing homes that have contracts for subsidized care from the Veterans Administration become federal contractors. If they refuse to raise their wages, their contracts will not be renewed.

Former Marine A.J. Crain just wheeled himself into his new room at Shreveport Manor on Mansfield Road when he got the news that the home’s contract will end this month.

“We fought all your wars, and now we’re broke. Where do we go from here?” Crain asks.
"We gotta go. Simple as that. We gotta go," says Vietnam War Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient John Washington.
"I think it's very wrong. I think it's very distasteful," Washington goes on to say about Shreveport Manor's decision. "I mean some of these people here work their backsides off to keep this place going," he said, pointing to a woman changing his bed.

Shreveport Manor is owned by Gamble Guest Care. Their Chief Operating Officer says if they raise wages for workers there, they have to do that at all eight of their facilities.

In a statement, Gamble COO Matt Machen said, in part, "The additional labor expenses are simply unaffordable. As such, many long term care providers have indicated that they will no longer seek or renew V.A. contracts."

Franks at the V.A. agrees that this has the potential to be a national problem as more V.A. contracts with nursing homes expire.

"We will deal with it on a case by case basis," Franks says. "We will work the families and try to provide the most convenient, and the nursing homes that are up to our standards to take care of our veterans."

"I'm not too happy over the situation," grumbles former Navy sailor Charles Shufflin at Shreveport Manor.

Shufflin hasn't even bothered unpacking his boxes of belongings since he has a place to go. His daughter Vickie Carrington is making room at her house.

"For my dad, I love him," she says, kissing him on the forehead.
"I'm not so worried about myself," Shufflin says, "but the veterans that have no place to live."

"There's a lot of people out there that have fought for our country," Carrington adds, choking back tears. "And the ones that don't have family members to take them in to take care of them, where are they going to go?"

The V.A. says they'll look for space at other V. A. nursing homes, war veterans homes, or veteran community living centers.

Gamble's Machen says the company will try to keep its veterans in place by looking for other forms of reimbursement, such as Medicare and Medicaid. He says only about one percent of their residents are affected.

Shufflin and Crain had just moved into Shreveport Manor from Rose View Nursing Center across the street, after the V.A. recently deemed Rose View had fallen below V. A. standards. So those vets would be moving for the second time in as many months.

Democrat Who Wanted to Hand Out KKK Hoods to GOP Gets Absolutely Schooled By Black Conservative Woman

Days after announcing his plan to hand out KKK hoods at Wisconsin’s GOP convention, State Representative and Democrat candidate for Governor Brett Hulsey (no relation to author) took to the streets once again.

Dressed in a (homemade and inaccurate) Confederate uniform, he flagged down conservative attendees to speak about what he says is the GOP’s racist agenda.

Milwaukee, Wisc...] State Representative and Democrat candidate for Governor Brett Hulsey told reporters last week that he was going to hand out KKK hoods at the Republican State Convention, which took place last weekend. After major backlash, he instead decided to wear a homemade confederate uniform and talk to GOP

Good Grief!!!! California Moves To Let Gay Men List Themselves As “Mother” On Birth Certificates, Lesbians As “Father”

California Moves To Let Gay Men List Themselves As “Mother” On Birth Certificates, Lesbians As “Father”…

(Washington Times) — In California, it may soon be legal for gay men to list themselves as “mother” on birth certificates, and similarly, for lesbians to cite themselves as “father.”

Or, the gay parent could simply opt for the more generic label of “parent,” The Associated Press reported.

That’s because lawmakers on Thursday passed through the state Assembly with a 51-13 vote a measure to “modernize” the definition of the family to reflect same-sex unions.

Currently, birth certificate documents in the state have a space for “mother” and another space for “father.” AB 1951 sponsor Jimmy Gomez, a Democrat who represents Los Angeles, says the form is discriminatory and demands revision.

Dem Congressman John Conyers Short of Signatures to Get On Primary Ballot

Not only is Conyers short of signatures to get on the ballot according to the County Clerk's office, one of the people who circulated petitions for Conyers is an ex-con on the run. ABC7 interviews a political insider who has followed Conyers for decades, he says John Conyers chances from here are "the longest of longshots"

The political insider tells ABC, 'Maybe it's time to make a graceful exit rather than be embarrassed out of office." Watch the video. It looks like (according to this report) Dem congressman John Conyers is done

(WXYZ) - 7 Action News has learned that Congressman John Conyers does not have enough signatures to be on the next ballot.

A staff report from the Wayne County Clerk's Office, concluded that Conyers does not have enough signatures after a challenge determined some of the signatures were invalid. Out of 2,000 collected signatures, 764 were tossed out and 644 are being challenged. That leaves just 592 signatures. 1,000 signatures are needed, which makes Conyers' petition invalid.

Global Warming Freak Obama reverses Ronald Reagan, puts solar panels on White House roof

WH posted this video of solar panels being installed (in a small area) on the WH roof.
All this comes at the same time President Obama takes AF1 across the country (at $186K an hour) for Democrat fundraisers on the West coast. What an absolute joke.

Global Warming Freak Obama reverses Ronald Reagan, puts solar panels on White House roof

Nearly 30 years after Ronald Reagan tossed the solar panels Jimmy Carter had built into the White House roof, the Obama administration has completed installation of new panels on top of the executive residence.

It’s a symbolic move by the White House as President Obama pushes new initiatives to stop climate change.

“Continuing President Obama’s commitment to lead by example to increase the use of clean energy in the U.S., the White House has completed installation of American-made solar panels on the first family’s residence as a part of an energy retrofit that will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building,” said White House spokesman Matt Lehrich.

“The project, which helps demonstrate that historic buildings can incorporate solar energy and energy efficiency upgrades, is estimated to pay for itself in energy savings over the next eight years,” he said.

Wild Thing's comment..........

Reagan IMO was correct about these things. I have seen so many homes that have these on their roofs and after being there awhile they are horrible. They get very dirty for one thing and collect leaves etc. plus like here in Florida they get what we have here a black mold that will grow like crazy on things outside. The mold has to be cleaned off once a year for sure and not one home I have seen cleans them off.

Indiana Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill Boehner For Not Extending Unemployment Benefits

Indiana Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill Boehner For Not Extending Unemployment Benefits

The Hill

An Indiana man was arrested on Thursday on charges that he threatened the life of Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Justice Department said Friday.

In emails to Boehner's office and voicemails on his wife’s cellphone, Brandan James Thompson, 32, of New Castle, Ind., allegedly threatened to shoot the speaker because the House failed to extend emergency unemployment benefits.

Thompson was arrested by the FBI at his home on Thursday and appeared in federal court on Friday morning. He stopped receiving unemployment checks in January after the program lapsed in December, and in late March he allegedly posted a message on Boehner’s website threatening to kill him with a sniper rifle.

“Well you drunk John bin Laden it’s time to take you out mother****er you want to play with 2.7 million peoples lives I am going to take yours you will never see it coming with my sniper rifle :) :) :) :) :) :),” Thompson wrote, according to an FBI affidavit.

A month later, Boehner’s wife, Debbie, told the Capitol Police that she received a threatening message on her personal cellphone, which the FBI traced to Thompson.

“I’m coming after your oompa loompa f**king husband,” the message said. “He shoulda … he shoulda extended unemployment insurance. Now, it’s too late. Imma rip his f**ing head off.”

Thompson allegedly left Debbie Boehner another voicemail on May 6.

“You tell your husband to redo the unemployment extension because I’m going to come for him,” the message said. “I’m going to rip his f**king head off. He’s not untouchable, I will get my hands on him.”

Thompson had a concealed carry permit but no criminal history, the FBI affidavit said. He has a protective order issued against him in April and had four previous protective orders since 2001.

According to the affidavit, Thompson admitted when the FBI showed up at his house on Thursday that he had made the threats against the Speaker.

The Senate passed an extension of emergency unemployment benefits last month, but the House has not taken it up.

Boehner’s office declined to comment on the arrest.

In a statement, Joseph Hogsett, U.S. attorney for the southern district of Indiana, said, “Free speech is the cornerstone of our democracy but threats of violence have no place in our civil society. People who are inclined to make them need to know that they violate the law and they will be aggressively pursued.”

Democrats Not Sure They'll Participate in Benghazi Select Committee

Democrats Not Sure They'll Participate in Benghazi Select Committee

House Democrats say they're still waiting by the phone for Speaker John Boehner's call, and until they hear from him, they cannot decide whether to participate in the Benghazi Select Committee to which Republicans were named Friday.

“The speaker has not responded to respectful and reasonable requests for bipartisan standards. He has not responded. He did not return any phone calls that Leader Pelosi made to him yesterday. We are trying to find a way to make this work, but the Republicans have shown no inclination to make it work,” Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) told reporters on Friday.

Democrats want full access to the committee's documents and interviews, as well as input on who receives subpoenas.

“If this is going to be a true bipartisan inquiry, we’ll participate. If this is going to be a Republican campaign strategy, it’s going to be harder for us to participate,” Israel said, referencing the National Republican Campaign Committee's email to donors centered around the Benghazi Select Committee.

When asked by Breitbart News to respond to Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s floor remarks Thursday that the accusation that the GOP is fundraising off the 2012 Benghazi attack is like the "pot calling the kettle black," Israel responded, “I don’t know what she’s talking about, quite honestly.”

Israel continued:

We have asked the Speaker and his staff to consider a variety of options. I’m not going to talk publicly about what those options are, but we’re looking forward to a reasonable response from the Speaker. ... The Republicans have passed a resolution creating a committee, but until the gavel is banged and the first meeting is held, there’s room for us to discuss to make sure that this is fair and balanced and bi-partisan and not a witch-hunt.

Israel, who is the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), repeatedly said Democrats were willing to involve themselves in the select committee, but may very well boycott if conditions they are offering Speaker Boehner are not met.

Israel noted that Republicans should not have full control over determining the ratios, who gets subpoenaed, and who receives access to information. He also said:

I believe we should participate, as long as we participate in something that is a truly balanced and bipartisan inquiry, but if the response by the Republicans is 'our way or the highway,' I don’t know why we would want to participate in something. We have given them every opportunity and multiple chances to show us and work with us on a balanced and fair inquiry. And if every one of those requests has been met with rejection and partisanship, it would be very hard for us to participate.

If Democrats do not participate in the select committee, however, they will not have access to subpoenaed documents immediately, either. “I’m hopeful that before we even get to that concern, that the Speaker and the Republican majority provides [sic] us with a process that’s fair and balanced,” Israel told Breitbart News.

Wild Thing's comment.............

The left wants to play childish, hyper-partisan, anti-America games.

Kerry Says Poverty, Not Religion Is Motivation For Nigerian Jihadist Group Boko Haram

Kerry Says Poverty, Not Religion Is Motivation For Nigerian Jihadist Group Boko Haram

Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday underlined the issue of poverty as a recruitment tool for extremist groups like Boko Haram, although analysts and Nigerian officials have for months been reporting that the organization is forcibly conscripting civilians, including children, into its ranks.

During his recent Africa trip leaders had told him that much of the challenge in confronting violent extremist groups like Boko Haram lies in fighting poverty, Kerry said at a Council of the Americas conference in Washington.

“They all talked about poverty and the need to alleviate poverty, and that much of this challenge comes out of this poverty where young people are grabbed at an early stage, proffered a little bit of money,” he said.

“Their minds are bended, and then the money doesn’t matter anymore. They’ve got the minds, and they begin to direct them into these very extreme endeavors.”

The Islamist terrorist group has waged a violent campaign against Nigerian Christians and government targets since 2009, but shot to global prominence in recent weeks with its kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls in the country’s north-eastern Borno state. Its leader has described them as “slaves” and is threatening to sell them or “marry” them off.

Kerry’s comments on poverty as a key factor follows others by State Department officials in recent years, focusing on socio-economic issues rather than the religious element when discussing Boko Haram.

“It is important to note that religion is not the primary driver behind extremist violence in Nigeria,” then-assistant secretary of state for African affairs Johnnie Carson told a Senate committee in March 2012. He said Boko Haram “attempts to exploit the legitimate grievances of northern populations to garner recruits and public sympathy.”

Wild Thing's comment.............

Insanity in play big time and the next outrageous thing is there will be idiots that believe him.

I will never forget how Obama said something similar back when 9-11 happened in New York. Obama said a large part of the reason the Islamist attacked the WTV etc. was because of poverty. So Kerry is carrying on the same BS.

Evil at work!! Liberal Group Wants U.N. To Tell Catholic Church It Has No Right To Oppose Abortion

Lib Group Wants U.N. To Tell Catholic Church It Has No Right To Oppose Abortion…

The Center for Reproductive Rights, a non-governmental organization that advocates for legalized abortion, is urging the United Nations Committee Against Torture to tell the Catholic Church that “the freedom of speech and of religion” do not give the church the right to advocate against abortion.

When the committee met in Geneva on Monday for a hearing on the Vatican’s compliance with the Convention Against Torture, Vice Chairperson Felice Gaer, an American, said in her opening statement that laws that ban all abortion—which is the position of the Catholic Church–may violate the convention. She also repeated verbatim some language that had been in a letter the CRR had sent to the committee on April 11.

Gaer, however, did not quote the section in CRR’s letter that urged the committee to tell the church that the freedoms of religion and speech did not give the church a right to advocate against abortion.

CRR’s letter included several recommendations for how the Committee Against Torture should deal with Catholicism.

Health Insurance Official Testifies Before Congress: Many of Obamacare’s “Eight Million Enrollees” Are Actually Duplicates

Health Insurance Official Testifies Before Congress: Many of Obamacare’s “Eight Million Enrollees” Are Actually Duplicates

In a House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations subcommittee hearing this morning, a major health insurance trade association representative testified that the administration is reporting inflated enrollment numbers.

According to their testimony:

“Duplicate enrollments: Because of the challenges that surfaced with the launch of the Exchanges in October 2013, some consumers were advised to create a new account and enroll again. As a result, insurers have many duplicate enrollments in their system for which they never received any payment. In cases where an insurer has a new enrollment for a consumer who previously enrolled, they are not expecting that original policy to be effectuated – even though that data is still reported.”

In other words, due to website glitches, some individuals may have enrolled multiple times. In these cases, the government may count all of these enrollments toward the total enrollment number. The insurer, knowing that the individual enrolled multiple times, will count that individual as having paid.

Liberals Threaten to Assassinate Trey Gowdy for Leading Benghazi Investigation

Liberals Threaten to Assassinate Trey Gowdy for Leading Benghazi Investigation

The U.S. Capitol Police are investigating threatening emails against Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican recently tapped to lead a special panel probing the Benghazi terrorist attacks.

The investigation comes after POLITICO reporters and journalists at other outlets received two emails on Tuesday warning that Gowdy would be harmed because of his role in investigating the 2012 attacks.

The Capitol Police would not comment on the scope of the investigation but Officer Shennell Antrobus confirmed that there is “an active, open investigation.”

Gowdy was tapped on Monday to lead a new select committee on Benghazi. His office referred all questions to the Capitol Police.

Capitol Police investigate all threats against members of Congress but they’ve paid especially close attention to death threats — even those that seem improbably — after former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) survived an assassination attempt in 2011.

In 2012, a woman approached Gowdy with a gun while he was sitting in his car in Spartanburg, S.C.

Hillary Clinton Pushes Gun Control: “We Have To Reign In” Americans Support For Second Amendment Rights

Hillary Clinton Pushes Gun Control: “We Have To Reign In” Americans Support For Second Amendment Rights

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday offered her most detailed comments on domestic policy in months, calling for tighter gun restrictions while also going to bat for Obamacare and warning that rising economic inequality is contributing to “social collapse.”

As to whether she’ll run for the White House, however, Clinton said she’s still mulling it because there’s “a cost to everything.”

The former secretary of state, who would be the Democratic frontrunner in 2016 should she run, was delivering the keynote address at a conference held by the National Council for Behavioral Health, an organization that focuses on mental health.

“We have to rein in what has become [an] almost article of faith, that anybody can own a gun anywhere, anytime. And I don’t believe that,” she said.

Clinton, who argued it was possible to hold her position and still support the right to gun ownership, warned that unfettered access to guns could have dangerous consequences.

She painted a dark picture, warning that, “At the rate we’re going, we’re going to have so many people with guns everywhere, fully licensed, fully validated, in settings where [one] could be in a movie theater, and they don’t like someone chewing gum loudly or talking on their cell phone and decide they have the perfect right to defend themselves against the gum chewer or cell phone user by shooting.”

Fox Confirms Stunning WH Exchange On Benghazi & The Terror Question

From last night......Fox Confirms Stunning WH Exchange On Benghazi & The Terror Question - The Kelly File

Discrepancies Found Between Benghazi Emails White House Gave To Congress And Those Court Ordered Released To Judicial Watch…

Documents reviewed by Fox News show there are differences between Benghazi emails released through the federal courts to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and emails released to the House oversight committee as part of its investigation into the attacks.

The discrepancies are fueling allegations the administration is holding back documents to Congress.

“The key question is whether Congress now has all the documents,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a member of the oversight committee, said. As for differences between the two sets of documents, Chaffetz alleged: “They are playing games. The classification and redactions are different. Why should Judicial Watch get more than Congress after issuing a subpoena?”

The emails published by Judicial Watch last week, which showed additional White House involvement in shaping the public explanation of what happened, helped trigger the announcement Friday by House Speaker John Boehner of a select committee to investigate.

Two of the emails, from Sept. 14, 2012, appear to be part of the deliberations in advance of then-U.N. ambassador Susan Rice’s Sunday show appearances were she linked an anti-Islam video to the Benghazi attacks. The emails released to Judicial Watch include the names of those who participated in the email chain.

The same emails provided to the House committee do not include names.

While the text and subject line are redacted in full for both Judicial Watch and Capitol Hill, there are unexplained differences in the classification. The emails, originally marked “unclassified,” were retroactively classified in February by the Department of State.

The email released to Judicial Watch is now marked “SECRET,” and the same email released to the Oversight Committee is marked “Confidential.” Both are marked to “DECLASSIFY” on Sept. 13, 2037 — 25 years after the terrorist attack which killed four Americans.

Fox News also reviewed an email from Sept. 12, 2012 from Rice to members of the U.S. team at the United Nations where Rice was U.S. ambassador at the time. This unclassified email, whose subject line and text are also redacted in full, was retroactively classified on April 16, 2014, one day before it was released. While the contents and subject line were redacted in both versions, the email released as a result of the federal lawsuit to Judicial Watch does include the names, while the other does not.

Wild Thing's comment...........

The WH and Obama acting more and more guilty in how his administration handled this.

If there is no difference, if Benghazi really didn’t matter, then why did the president and the Secretary of State lie about it for weeks afterwards? Why was it so important to lie about it? Just this week, Jay Carney lied about it again!!

20 months later and we still do not have answers to basic questions. For instance, where was the president that evening while his ambassador was being killed? We now know he was not in the situation room at any time during the evening. Where was this absentee president? What was he doing that was more important than Benghazi? We still do not know…we can only guess…

Some articles for those who need some background:

Jay Carney Refuses to Answer if Obama White House Will Cooperate With Benghazi Investigation

White House spokesman Jay Carney refused to answer if the Obama administration will cooperate with the Benghazi investigation.

He was asked if the administration considered the new committee legitimate, and said he declined to speculate. ABC’s Jonathan Karl later asked directly if the administration would cooperate, to which Carney declined to give a yes or no answer.

“What I’m not going to do is speculate about what might come and how it’s going to play out,” Carney said after making a comment that elicited laughter from the White House press corps. “What I will remind you of is our cooperation of our history on this and many others.”

He went on to say, “We’re going to focus on where we can move forward for the American people.”

New Benghazi documents released last week revealed the White House hid the truth from Congress.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) released this statement regarding the announcement that Speaker John Boehner has chosen him to lead the select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks:

“I applaud Speaker Boehner for his decision to establish a select committee and am honored to serve as Chairman. Twenty months after the Benghazi attacks, there remain unresolved questions about why the security was inadequate, our response during the siege itself, and our government's interaction with the public after the attack. All of those lines of inquiry are legitimate and should be apolitical. Facts are neither red nor blue.

“While people are free to draw different conclusions from the facts, there should be no debate over whether the American public is entitled to have all of the facts. In a courtroom, juries are free to believe one witness over a hundred witnesses. But you cannot make that or any other credibility determination if you do not have access to all relevant witnesses, documents and other tangible evidence.

“Four of our fellow citizens were murdered, and a facility emblematic and representative of our country was attacked and burned on the anniversary of 9-11. Our fellow citizens are full well capable of processing the truth about the attacks and aftermath, and most assuredly entitled to hear it.”

Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi

Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi

By Andrew C. McCarthy ( former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York. A Republican, he is most notable for leading the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others. )

For entire article ( PLEASE CLICK HERE )

White House Spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on September 15, 2012, four days after terrorists stormed the consulate in Benghazi and killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens, that the Middle East protests were in response to a video.

“These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region… The unrest we’ve seen in the region has been in reaction to a video.”

The Obama administration lied about the Cairo protests, too.The rioting at US in Cairo on 9-11 2012 was not about about a video.

Why would Carney claim, with a straight face, that Rice was being prepped “about protests around the Muslim world”? Because, other than Benghazi, the “protest around the Muslim world” that Americans know about is the rioting (not “protest,” rioting) at the U.S. embassy in Cairo a few hours before the Benghazi siege. When Benghazi comes up, the administration — President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney, et al. — loves to talk about the Cairo “protests.” Why? Because the media, and thus the public, have bought hook, line, and sinker the fraudulent claim that those “protests” were over the anti-Muslim video. Obama & Co. shrewdly calculate that if you buy “Blame the Video” as the explanation for Cairo, it becomes much more plausible that you will accept “Blame the Video” as the explanation for Benghazi — or, at the very least, you will give Obama officials the benefit of the doubt that they could truly have believed the video triggered Benghazi, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.

You see, the Benghazi fraud hinges on the success of the Cairo fraud. If you are hoodwinked by the latter, they have a much better chance of getting away with the former.

But “Blame the Video” is every bit as much a deception when it comes to Cairo.

Thanks to President Obama’s policy of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic supremacists in Egypt, post-Mubarak Cairo became a very hospitable place for jihadists. That included al-Qaeda leaders, such as Mohammed Zawahiri, brother of al-Qaeda emir Ayman Zawahiri; and leaders of Gama’at al-Islamia (the Islamic Group), the terrorist organization led by the Blind Sheikh — Omar Abdel Rahman, the terrorist I convicted in 1995 for running the jihadist cell that bombed the World Trade Center and plotted to bomb other New York City landmarks.

In the weeks before September 11, 2012, these jihadists plotted to attack the U.S. embassy in Cairo. In fact, the Blind Sheikh’s son threatened a 1979 Iran-style raid on the embassy: Americans would be taken hostage to ransom for the Blind Sheikh’s release from American prison (he is serving a life sentence). Other jihadists threatened to burn the embassy to the ground — a threat that was reported in the Egyptian press the day before the September 11 “protests.”

The State Department knew there was going to be trouble at the embassy on September 11, the eleventh anniversary of al-Qaeda’s mass-murder of nearly 3,000 Americans. It was well known that things could get very ugly. When they did, it would become very obvious to Americans that President Obama had not “decimated” al-Qaeda as he was claiming on the campaign trail. Even worse, it would be painfully evident that his pro–Muslim Brotherhood policies had actually enhanced al-Qaeda’s capacity to attack the United States in Egypt.

The State Department also knew about the obscure anti-Muslim video. Few Egyptians, if any, had seen or heard about it, but it had been denounced by the Grand Mufti in Cairo on September 9. Still, the stir it caused was minor, at best. As Tom Joscelyn has elaborated, the Cairo rioting was driven by the jihadists who were agitating for the Blind Sheikh’s release and who had been threatening for weeks to raid and torch our embassy. And indeed, they did storm it, replace the American flag with the jihadist black flag, and set fires around the embassy complex.

Because there was a kernel of truth to the video story, and because the American media have abdicated their responsibility to report the predominant causes of anti-Americanism in Egypt, journalists and the public have uncritically accepted the notion — a false notion — that the video caused the Cairo rioting. That acceptance is key to the administration’s “Blame the Video” farce in connection with the lethal attack in Benghazi.

At about 10 p.m. Washington time on the night of September 11 — after they knew our ambassador to Libya had been murdered and while the siege of Benghazi still raged — Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama spoke on the telephone. Shortly afterwards, the State Department issued a statement from Secretary Clinton blaming the video for the atrocity in Benghazi. That was the beginning of the fraud’s Benghazi phase — the phase Susan Rice was prepped to peddle on nationwide television. But it wasn’t the beginning of the fraud.

BOOM!… Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell (Ret.) to Congress on Benghazi: ‘This Was No Demonstration Gone Terribly Awry”

Brigadier General Robert Lovell, U.S. Air Force (Retired) told the House Oversight Committee today, under oath, that the military knew immediately Benghazi was terrorist attack and not a “protest gone awry.” Brigadier General Robert W. Lovell served as Deputy Director for Intelligence and Knowledge Development Directorate, United States Africa Command in the discharge of all Intelligence and Counterintelligence responsibilities as assigned by the Unified Command Plan.

“Nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us, be it kidnapping, rescue, recovery, protracted hostile engagement, or any or all the above. But, what we did know quite early on was that this was a hostile action. This was not demonstration gone terrible awry. To the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. The Africom J2 was focused on attribution. The attacks became attributable very soon after the event.”

Democrat Communist Rep. Barbara Lee Supports Raising Minimum Wage In California To $26 Per Hour

Daily Caller

California Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee expressed support for a $26 minimum wage in her state — a move Republican congressman Andy Harris encouraged, assuming jobs would rapidly flee California to his state of Maryland.

Lee and Harris appeared Friday on CNN’s “Crossfire,” hosted by former Obama advisor Van Jones and former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The panel discussed the proposed increase in the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour.

“Let me ask you this question, you’re a good advocate for this,” Gingrich asked Lee. “The mayor of Seattle is proposing that the minimum wage ought to go up to $15 an hour.”

“Good for him,” Lee responded. “In California — more than likely, from what I remembered — a living wage where people could live and take care of their families and move toward achieving the American dream was about $25, $26 an hour.”

“So would you support that as a minimum wage for California?” Gingrich asked.

“Absolutely I would support it for California. I think the regional factors –”

“And you don’t think that’d have an effect on unemployment?” Gingrich interrupted.

“No, Newt, trust me, believe you me,” Lee replied, “you’d have a more productive workforce, you’d have people who could afford to live in areas now where they cannot afford to live. You would increase diversity in certain communities where you don’t have diversity anymore. You would have economic parity and the income gap would begin to close.”

Gingrich pointed out that many countries in Europe — including economic powerhouse Germany — has no minimum wage, yet has tremendously-high economic productivity and relatively low unemployment. He pointed out the average European country with minimum wage laws had 13.8 percent unemployment. No wage law? Just 6.3 percent.

Lee tried to dismiss the comparison, claiming Europe “has a safety net” that America doesn’t possess. But Van Jones quickly moved to change the subject.

Veteran, Purple Heart Recipient and Actor Efrem Zimbalist Jr Passes Away at 95

FBI TV Show Opening Theme

77 SUNSET STRIP: Opening Credits / Intro & Theme Song

Veteran, Purple Heart Recipient and Actor Efrem Zimbalist Jr Passes Away at 95

Efrem Zimbalist Jr., the son of famous musical parents who established his own name in the long-running television series "77 Sunset Strip" and the even longer running TV hit "The F.B.I.," died Friday at age 95.

Zimbalist died at his Solvang home in California's bucolic horse country, said family friend Judith Moose, who released a statement from his children, actress Stephanie Zimbalist and her brother, Efrem Zimbalist III.

"We are heartbroken to announce the passing into peace of our beloved father, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., today at his Solvang ranch," it said. "He actively enjoyed his life to the last day, showering love on his extended family, playing golf and visiting with close friends."

Zimbalist's stunning good looks and cool, deductive manner made him the ideal star as the hip private detective ferreting out Hollywood miscreants in "77 Sunset Strip," which aired from 1958 to 1964. As soon as that show ended he segued seamlessly into "The F.B.I." which aired from 1965 to 1974.

At the end of each episode of the latter show, after Zimbalist and his fellow G-men had captured that week's mobsters, subversives, bank robbers or spies, the show would post photos from the FBI's real-life wanted list. Some of the photos led to arrests, which helped give the show the complete seal of approval of the agency's real-life director, J. Edgar Hoover.

Zimbalist was the son of violin virtuoso Efrem Zimbalist and Alma Gluck, an acclaimed opera singer.

Young Efrem studied the violin himself for seven years under the tutelage of Jascha Heifetz's father, but he eventually developed more interest in theater. He became an actor, and "77 Sunset Strip" made him a celebrity.

His daughter also took up acting -- and small-screen detective work, in the 1980s TV series "Remington Steele." Her father had a recurring role in that show as a con man.

After serving in World War II, Zimbalist made his stage debut in "The Rugged Path," starring Spencer Tracy, and appeared in other plays and a soap opera before being called to Hollywood. Warner Bros. signed him to a contract and cast him in minor film roles.

In 1958 "77 Sunset Strip" debuted, starring Zimbalist as a cultured former O.S.S. officer and language expert whose partner was Roger Smith, an Ivy League Ph.D.

The pair operated out of an office in the center of Hollywood's Sunset Strip where, aided by their sometime helper, Kookie, a jive-talking beatnik type who doubled as a parking lot attendant, they tracked down miscreants. Kookie's character, played by Edd Byrnes, helped draw young viewers to the show and make it an immediate hit.

The program brought Zimbalist an Emmy nomination in 1959, but after a few seasons he tired of the long hours and what he believed were the bad scripts.

"A job like this should pay off in one of two ways: satisfaction or money. The money is not great, and there is no satisfaction," he said.

When the show faltered in 1963, Jack Webb of "Dragnet" fame was hired for an overhaul. He fired the cast except for Zimbalist, whom he made a world-traveling investigator. The repair work failed, and the series ended the following year.

Zimbalist had better luck with "The F.B.I.," which endured for a decade as one of TV's most popular shows.

Perceiving that the series could provide the real FBI with an important P.R. boost, Hoover opened the bureau's files to the show's producers and even allowed background shots to be filmed in real FBI offices.

"He never came on the set, but I knew him," Zimbalist said. "A charming man, extremely Virginia formal and an extraordinary command of the language."

During summer breaks between the two series, Warner Bros. cast Zimbalist in several feature films, including "Too Much Too Soon," "Home Before Dark," "The Crowded Sky," "The Chapman Report" and "Wait Until Dark." In the latter, he played the husband of Audrey Hepburn, a blind woman terrorized by thugs in a truly frightening film.

Zimbalist also appeared in "By Love Possessed," "Airport 1975," "Terror Out of the Sky" and "Hot Shots."

But he would always be best known as a TV star, ironic for an actor who told The Associated Press in a 1993 interview that when Warner Bros. first hired him he had no interest in doing television.

"They showed me in my contract where it said I had to," he recalled.

"I ended up with my life slanted toward television and I just accept that," he added. "I think you play the hand the way it's dealt, that's all."

In the 1990s, Zimbalist recorded the voice of Alfred, the butler, in the cartoon "Batman" series, which, he said, "has made me an idol in my little grandchildren's eyes."

He was born in New York City on Nov. 30, 1917.

His mother reasoned that living amid the musical elite was not the best upbringing for a boy, so she sent him to boarding schools where he could be toughened by others his age. But young Efrem was bashful and withdrawn in school. His only outlet was acting in campus plays.

"I walked onstage in a play at prep school, and with childish naivetΘ, told myself, `Wow, I'm an actor!"' he once recalled.

He was kicked out of Yale after two years over dismal grades, which he blamed on a playboy attitude.

Afraid to go home, he stayed with a friend in New York City for three months, working as a page at NBC headquarters, where he was dazzled by the famous radio stars. Unable to break into radio as an actor, he studied at the famed Neighborhood Playhouse.

During World War II he served in the infantry, receiving a Purple Heart for a shrapnel wound in his leg.

In 1945, Zimbalist married Emily McNair and they had a daughter, Nancy, and son, Efrem III. His wife died in 1950, and he gave up acting to teach at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, where his father was an artist in residence. After five years he returned to Hollywood. He married Loranda Stephanie Spalding in 1956, and she gave birth to daughter Stephanie.

He is survived by his children, four grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.


WW II. he served five years serving in the European Theater and earned a Purple Heart at Huertgen Forest where he was wounded in the left thigh by a shall fragment while leading an infantry platoon during an attack on Germany’s Siegfried Line

Wild Thing's comment........

Amazing he was 95, he lived a long life, what a blessing. RIP and thanks for the memories.

I also remember Efrem Zimbalist as a Reagan supporter and California GOP delegate to the national convention.

Veteran’s Affairs Cancelled 1.5 Million Unresolved Requests For Appointments

Veteran’s Affairs Cancelled 1.5 Million Unresolved Requests For Appointments

The Department of Veterans Affairs purged more than 1.5 million medical orders without ensuring patients received medical care, the Washington Examiner reports:

Since May 2013, veterans’ medical centers nationwide have been under pressure to clear out 2 million backlogged orders for patient care or services.

They were given wide latitude to cancel unfilled appointments more than 90 days old. By April 2014, the backlog of what the agency calls “unresolved consults” was down to about 450,000.

What happened to other 1.5 million appointments is something that no one, including top officials at the veterans’ agency, can answer.

A review by the Government Accountability Office of the process VA used to close old consult orders found that poor documentation in patient files and the lack of independent verification made it impossible to know whether patients got care they needed before their medical orders were canceled.

The VA is currently embroiled in scandal after news investigations revealed dozens of veterans, including 40 at a Phoenix VA hospital, died from delays in treatment.

The total number of veterans who have died from delayed treatment is unknown.

The VA released a fact-sheet in April showing 23 veterans had died nationwide from delayed gastrointestinal cancer screenings.

An investigation by the Center for Investigative Reporting found the VA has paid out $200 million for nearly 1,000 wrongful deaths since the 9/11 attacks.

Pro Criminals Obama Says Death Penalty Racist After Execution of Black Man In Oklahoma Goes Awry

Obama Says Death Penalty Racist After Execution of Black Man In Oklahoma Goes Awry

Barack Obama today tried to raise his supporters’ long-standing opposition to jury-directed death-penalties by suggesting to a German reporter today that Americans jurors and judges may be biased against African-American murderers.

“What happened in Oklahoma was deeply troubling,” said Obama, referring to a recent execution of an African-American man in Oklahoma.

The comments came two years after Obama used a Rose Garden appearance to focus African-Americans’ attention on a dispute over the killing of a young black man — Trayvon Martin — by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida. “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” Obama said in March 2012, months before the November election. [...]

Instead of sidestepping a foreign reporter’s question about a state-level issue in Oklahoma, Obama choose to expand the Oklahoma case into a veiled attack on the death penalty.

“We have seen significant problems — racial bias, uneven application of the death penalty, situations in which there were individuals on death row who were later on were discovered to have been innocent… and all these I think do raise significant questions about how the death penalty has been applied,” he claimed in the Rose Garden press conference.

“I’ll be discussing with [Attorney General] Eric Holder and others to get me an analysis of what’s steps have been taken,” he said.

“We do have to, as a society, ask ourselves some difficult and profound questions about these issues,” he claimed, even though the death penalty is supported by roughly 55 percent of the public, and is opposed by 37 percent.

Obama made sure to offset his veiled opposition to the death penalty by saying he supported its use in “heinous crimes,” such as mass-murders or the the killing of children.

Wild Thing's comment.........

It is always the same, the left wants and demands to be able to KILL innocent babies, but fuss and complain when our laws allow the death of criminals, murderers.

Tricare For Life Program To Cut Discounts For More Than 400K Retirees

Tricare For Life Program To Cut Discounts For More Than 400K Retirees

Stars and Stripes

Starting this spring, more than 400,000 military retirees and senior dependents in the Tricare for Life program will owe the full amount for certain prescription refills if they use a retail pharmacy rather than a military pharmacy or a mail service.

The change, part of a pilot program created by Congress, is meant to help control the cost of military health care and in its first year, is expected to cut $120 million from the $3.3 billion that the U.S. Department of Defense pays annually for Tricare For Life pharmacy needs.

The government insurance serves about 2 million military retirees and their dependents over 65, supplementing Medicare. Tricare for Life accounts for nearly half of the $7.1 billion that the Defense Department spends each year on its pharmacy program.

The pilot includes more than 400 medications – mostly brand-name – for chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma. Prescriptions for pain relievers, antibiotics and other medicines for acute conditions aren’t affected.

With the program, members can fill eligible prescriptions three times at a retail outlet, usually a 30-day supply for a $17 copayment. Then, if they don’t switch, they’re responsible for the drug’s entire cost for subsequent refills, charges that quickly could climb into hundreds of dollars.

If they do switch, they’ll owe $13 for each 90-day supply through the Express Scripts mail service or nothing when they use a base pharmacy.

After a year, members can opt out of the pilot and return to paying $17 for a 30-day supply for their retail refills. Nine out of 10 people who switch to the home delivery program decide to stick with it, according to Tricare.

Tricare for Life will grant waivers on a case-by-case basis due to “personal need or hardship, emergency, or other special circumstance.”

Beyond savings and convenience, Tricare officials said the move to mail delivery can help patients adhere more closely to their drug regimens by requiring less effort to get their prescriptions refilled.

That compliance can keep patients healthier, an obvious plus for them. It also can save insurance plans the expense of hospitalizations or other medical care, said health economics consultant M. Christopher Roebuck.

But brick-and-mortar pharmacies say it takes more than access to ensure that patients take their medicines correctly.

“A lot of people, they have medications that they just don’t take,” said John Norton, a spokesman for the National Community Pharmacists Association. “Or they have medication and they start to feel better, and they don’t take it to its conclusion.”

Some – including members of the U.S. House of Representatives – have expressed concern about over-reliance on mail delivery for pharmaceuticals.

In a March 31 letter to the Pentagon, nine congressmen, including North Carolina Republican Walter Jones, stressed the value of in-person counseling from community pharmacists.

Though the pilot program offers around-the-clock phone access to pharmacists, they said that might not be enough.

“We urge Tricare to allow patients who prefer to utilize their local community pharmacist as opposed to a telephone hotline to do so,” they wrote.

Tricare for Life members in South Hampton Roads offered mixed opinions about the pharmaceutical mail service.

Jerry Walton, 69, said he hadn’t wanted to switch, and he remains apprehensive about the potential impact of inclement weather.

“A 100 degree day, what’s the temperature in a metallic mailbox and what’s the status of the drugs after eight hours in that?” the Virginia Beach resident said. “Maybe they’re fine, maybe not, maybe it depends on the drug.”

Doris Plock tried mail delivery last year after surgery made it difficult for her to get around. She was surprised to discover a new $15 charge for insulin she’d been getting for free and unhappy that her doctor was required to undergo a complicated verification process for a medicine she’d been taking for years.

After she recovered, she abandoned the mail order program for the military pharmacy at Sewells Point Branch Medical Clinic.

“If something like that happened again, I guess I would have to go back to it,” Plock, 69, of Virginia Beach, said, “not that I would want to, but I would have to.”

Chuck LeGeyt feels differently.

In three years using Tricare’s mail order program, he experienced just one hiccup – a delayed delivery during last winter’s snows.

“I couldn’t even tell you how to improve it,” said LeGeyt, 66, of Virginia Beach. “It’s that good.”

Bret Baier: Jay Carney's Lie and Spin On Benghazi Briefing Materials "Surreal"

Bret Baier: Jay Carney's Spin On Benghazi Briefing Materials "Surreal"

BRET BAIER: This was a surreal answer from Jay Carney. Now, this is a prep session with Susan Rice, getting ready for five Sunday talk shows. This is three days after 9/11 when four Americans, including the American ambassador to Libya, are killed. Everybody in the chain has said it’s a terrorist attack, everyone in the chain is saying there’s no protest. And yet this email, if we’re to believe Jay Carney at the White House, had nothing to do with Benghazi. It was more about the broad scope of the region. Now, imagine that. What are they going to ask about on five Sunday talk shows when you have four Americans who were killed just days before? They’re not going to ask about the other protests that didn’t see any Americans killed. They’re going to ask about that. So then he said that the reason they didn’t originally put forward this email to the committee — they eventually got it to the committee redacted — was because it didn’t deal with Benghazi. Now, that really strains credulity, I mean it is really out there.

Sen. Ed Markey (Democrat) Pushing a Bill To Allow Feds To Troll Internet Looking For Hate Speech And Possible Hate Crimes Charges

A new proposal would empower the feds to scour the Internet, TV and more for so-called hate speech.

Democratic Sen. Ed Markey is pushing a bill to have a federal agency monitor anything that it suspects may encourage hate crimes. He wants the agency to work in connection with the Department of Justice and U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, then file a report to Congress on what’s hateful and could lead to hate crimes.

So, who gets to decide what’s hateful and what will they then do about it?

“Those are the two big questions, and we don’t have the answers to those questions, which I think is the root of what’s troubling about this,” political editor Guy Benson told Megyn Kelly.

He questioned who would hold the agency accountable if abuses occur?

Price Tag for Obamacare Website Repairs Jumps To $121 Million

After shelling out $677 million to build the federal health care website, the government will spend an additional $121 million in 2014 to repair it—$30 million more than previously estimated—the Washington Times reported last night. This comes just as the Obama administration is starting the hunt for next year’s diverse group of contractors.

CGI Federal, the original lead contractor awarded $93.7 million, was replaced by Accenture this past January. Accenture received an initial payment of $45 million—an amount that was supposed to double by year’s end, according to the Washington Post. But yesterday, Accenture Federal Services announced their final agreement of $121 million for work through January 10, 2015.

The search for Accenture’s successor has commenced, and the administration has some specific criteria on its applicants’ gender, race, and socioeconomic status. From the New York Times yesterday.

Museum Devoted To Islam Planned Near 9/11 Ground Zero _ Disgusting!!!

Museum Devoted To Islam Planned Near 9/11 Ground Zero

The developer whose proposal to build a Muslim community center and mosque near the World Trade Center failed amid a national controversy three years ago said Tuesday that he now plans to construct a museum devoted to Islam in the same location.

Sharif El-Gamal, the developer, said through a spokesman that instead of a $100 million, 15-story community center and prayer space, he now planned a smaller, three-story museum “dedicated to exploring the faith of Islam and its arts and culture.” The building would also include a sanctuary for prayer services and community programs.

To make the plan more attractive to neighbors, he said in a statement, he had commissioned a French architect, Jean Nouvel, winner of the 2008 Pritzker Prize, to design the building at 45-51 Park Place, about two blocks from the former World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, and had included plans for a public green space.

“This is a more tailored approach, both physically and programmatically,” said Hank Sheinkopf, a spokesman for Mr. El-Gamal. “It will prove to be an important addition to the neighborhood and to New York City’s arts and cultural community.”

The museum will be a 5,000-square-foot, three-story structure, Mr. Sheinkopf said, adding that the dimensions and design are still in development. He said Mr. El-Gamal’s signing of Mr. Nouvel “shows his serious commitment to realizing this project.”

Sebelius Now Refusing To Testify Before Senate Panel

Sebelius Now Refusing To Testify Before Senate Panel

Outgoing Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius is now refusing to testify before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies, a Senate aide told The Daily Caller Tuesday.

Sebelius had originally been set to testify before the subcommittee about the department’s 2015 $70 billion budget request on April 2.

According to another aide, however, several weeks after confirming the hearing date, she requested a date switch with the National Institutes of Health budget hearing on May 7. The committee accommodated her request.

Now, after announcing her resignation on April 11, she is refusing to testify according to the two aides, even though she is still the sitting secretary — remaining at the post until her successor, OMB Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is confirmed.

Typical, I would never trust a democrat.....never. If they are breathing they are telling a lie.

Jay Carney Says ( anti-Semitic) Obama Stands By Kerry’s Israel “Apartheid” Comment

Jay Carney Says ( anti-Semitic) Obama Stands By Kerry’s Israel “Apartheid” Comment

Barack Obama agrees with the Secretary of State John Kerry, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney suggested Wednesday: the word “apartheid” was wrong, but the underlying sentiment that Kerry was trying to express wasn’t.

Carney was asked at Wednesday’s White House press briefing about Kerry’s comments at a recent event assessing the future of the peace process, which exploded after a tape of them was posted on the Daily Beast over the weekend.

“The overall point that we have made as a matter of policy, that Secretary Kerry makes, that President Obama makes, that [Israeli] Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu makes, is the desired outcome here is a two-state solution in which there is a sovereign Palestinian state and a democratic, Jewish state of Israel that is secure and safe,” Carney said.

Including the word “democratic” as part of what would be entailed by two-state solution could be read as pointing to the outcome that Kerry was trying to warn against when he said “a unitary state winds up being either an apartheid state with second class citizens, or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.”

Kerry issued a statement Monday evening saying he wished he could “rewind the tape” and choose a different word — but not backing away from his analysis, which tracks with comments made by Israeli leaders about the unclear future if a deal isn’t eventually struck to create two separate countries and Israelis resist granting full citizenship rights to Palestinians.

Not surprised at all, Obama hates Israel.
