Obama Statement on Shimon Peres:
But Enough About Me
White House Dossier, by Keith Koffler    Original Article

President Obama last night issued a name-dropping, self-referential statement about Israeli President Shimon Peres, who died Tuesday at 93, noting three times that he and Shimon were “friends.” “My friend Shimon” “Our dear friend Shimon Peres” “I will always be grateful that I was able to call Shimon my friend.” Like, what kind of friends? As in, Hey Shimon, I’m calling because you’ll never guess what happened to me today!” They weren’t friends. I doubt if Peres, whose personality was seared in the struggle for the birth and preservation of Israel, had much respect for this man who rose to power through charm and little

Here is the video Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Campaign are selling as intensely controversial. The video is from 20-years-ago in 1997 where Donald Trump and 1996 Miss Universe Alicia Machado appeared together at a joint press event: Team Clinton are manufacturing an outrage, and the water-carrying media is intent on pushing their narrative. Irrelevant 20-year-old nonsense.

BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is firing back at the city´s top prosecutor for critical comments she made in a magazine profile. Rawlings-Blake told reporters Wednesday that State´s Attorney Marilyn Mosby rushed to prosecute six police officers in the death of a young black man whose neck was broken in the back of a transport wagon. (Snip) The mayor´s comments were in response to a profile of Mosby in The New York Times Magazine in which she said the mayor disseminated false information about the investigation into Gray´s death. In the story Mosby recalled "screaming" at Rawlings-Blake and blaming

Indonesia´s Search and Rescue Agency has evacuated approximately 1,000 tourists after a volcano on the Indonesian island of Lombok erupted unexpectedly on Tuesday, shooting a 6,560-foot column of ash into the sky. No injuries have been reported from the eruption that took place on Mount Barujari, a small mountain within Mount Rinjani, one of the most active volcanoes in the region. Approximately 50 climbers are yet to be accounted for, but they are believed to be safe. Located on the famed Pacific Ring of Fire, with more than 130 active volcanoes, Indonesia experiences a great many eruptions, particularly in the past

Trump Has Talented Advisors:
He Should Listen to Them

When Donald Trump first came on the scene during the U.S. primaries, many thought he was only trying to test the waters and give his brand a boost. And perhaps initially those were his intentions. But when the results of open and closed primaries showed overwhelming support for Trump from participating voters, it became clear he was the Republican candidate to beat. Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), also considered anti-status quo and rebellious, came out second. Understandably, the people who represent and benefit from the political, business, and media interests that are constantly under attack by Trump continually try to highlight his

Center for Security Policy president and founder Frank Gaffney joined Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday to offer his thoughts on the first presidential debate and a vitally important topic that was not addressed, the impending surrender of U.S. control of Internet registration. Gaffney recalled a discussion with Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas, in which Pompeo told him: Hillary Clinton made the case – I think pretty well, actually – for more of the same, and if you really want more of the same, whether it’s in immigration, whether it’s in trade policy, whether it’s in

You’re guilty and you don’t know it. Sure, you think you’re a decent person who treats people fairly, judging them on the content of their character and not the color of the skin. But let’s face it: You’re deluded. Especially if you happen to be white, you’re biased and you don’t even know it. You’re unaware of your own privilege, and of the extent to which your beliefs, speech, and even mannerisms oppress people of color. It’s time to confess. It’s time to be re-educated. It’s time to rid yourself of your false consciousness. This is the message of the

Chelsea Clinton weighed in on Donald Trump invoking her father’s “transgressions” this week, and Juanita Broaddrick responded by sending her a message on Twitter. Trump boasted after the debate that he could have gone there on Bill Clinton, but didn’t want to with his daughter in the room. Well, she responded to that in an interview with Cosmopolitan after the debate. Clinton said, “It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country

Fewer than one in five employees with a security clearance at the State Department has completed the mandated training for handling classified information as required by a 2009 Executive Order signed by President Obama, according to a new report from the government watchdog with oversight. (Snip) The report was commissioned after a 2013 review found severe deficiencies at the department when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. “When Department employees and contractors are unaware of classification standards and no mechanism is in place to enforce training requirements, there is an increased risk that information could be incorrectly marked, misclassified, and/or

Agnes Nixon, who created such soap operas as "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," has died, her daughter Cathy Chicos told ABC News. Chicos said the TV producer died on Thursday morning as a result of her battle with Parkinson’s disease and a recent stroke. She was 93. "One Life to Live" and "All My Children," both set in fictional Pennsylvania suburbs, enjoyed lengthy runs on ABC. "One Life to Live," which revolved in part around the Lord family, aired from 1968-2012. "All My Children," which famously starred Susan Lucci as Erica Kane, aired from 1970-2011. Both were



It Was ‘a Mistake’: Obama Reacts

President Barack Obama expressed his disappointment on Wednesday with Congress, which voted overwhelmingly to overturn his presidential veto on a bill that would allow families of terrorist victims to sue foreign nations. The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) will allow the families of 9/11 victims to seek restitution by suing Saudi Arabia, where the vast majority of the hijackers hailed from. It passed Congress unanimously, but Obama had expressed his intention to veto it, which he did on Friday. The Senate voted Wednesday 97-1 to override Obama’s veto, and the House voted likewise 348-77, effectively passing the bill into

The Construct of the
White Working-Class Zombies
National Review, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article

One of the strangest transformations in the era of Obama has been the overt and often gratuitous stereotyping of so-called white people — most often the white working classes who have become constructed into veritable unthinking and unrecognizable zombies. For progressives especially these were not the sympathetic old foundation of the Democratic party, who were once romanticized as the “people” pitted against the industrialists and the bluestockings, but rather have become monstrous caricatures of all sorts of incorrect race/class/and gender behavior and speech. Stranger still, this disparagement was concurrent to the release of a variety of recent studies that have

Two men seen removing an unexploded bomb from a wheeled duffel bag left on the street by the Chelsea bomber have been identified by the FBI. Officials say the pair are both Egyptian pilots who have since left the U.S., presumably to return to Egypt, ABC News reports. Their names have not yet been made public. The men had been seen on surveillance video removing the bomb from luggage on West 27th Street, Manhattan, at around 8pm on the night of the Chlsea bombing attack on September 17. They dumped the pressure cooker explosive on the street - which was

When Health Republic Insurance of New Jersey announced recently that it’s $46 million in debt and shutting down, it became the 17th failed ObamaCare co-op since the Affordable Care Act launched three years ago. Those failures – just six of the original 23 co-ops remain – have left hundreds of thousands of people scrambling for coverage. Meanwhile, insurers claiming big losses are leaving some state exchanges -- including Indiana University Health Plans, whose exit is expected to result in 27,000 Indiana residents losing ObamaCare plans in 2017. And companies still operating in the federal and state exchanges are raising premiums

The Obama administration is poised to surrender control of certain Internet functions to non-profit ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, on October 1. According to Americans for Limited Government’s senior editor Robert Romano, opposition to this Internet giveaway has united Republicans such as Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and presidential candidate Donald Trump. But questions remain as to whether or not the Republicans will unite sufficiently to insist language is included in a continuing resolution that will forbid the transfer of control. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) actually stripped out this language from the continuing resolution, and

Every four years, the AFL-CIO labor federation engages in a quixotic mission: to attempt to dissuade many of its own members from voting for their first choice for president, the Republican candidate. Between one-quarter and one-third pull the lever for the GOP, anyway. The labor leaders´ efforts have taken an added urgency this year because the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, may have the strongest appeal in decades of any GOP candidate to the union rank-and-file. The AFL-CIO has conceded as much. An internal poll it did in June found that 41 percent of its members in five key battleground states

HAVANA — A top Cuban diplomat on Wednesday rejected Donald Trump´s threat to undo detente with Cuba unless the single-party government meets the Republican presidential candidate´s demands. Trump said in Miami this month that he would reverse President Barack Obama´s executive orders loosening the U.S. trade embargo on the island unless Cuba meets demands including "religious and political freedom for the Cuban people and the freeing of political prisoners." Gustavo Machin, Cuba´s deputy director of U.S. affairs, said Cuba would never be pressured into making internal reforms, and he said whoever is the next U.S. president should respect Cuba´s right to self-determination.

Kaepernick was not impressed with either candidate. “It was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates,” Kaepernick said. “Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist.

Wearing a candidate´s campaign pin is hardly out of the ordinary this election season. But doing it while conducting congressional oversight at a hearing where that candidate´s conduct is front-and-center -- that´s another matter. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, raised eyebrows Wednesday when she showed up wearing a gold Hillary Clinton campaign pin to a House Judiciary Committee hearing dealing with the FBI probe regarding Clinton’s private email server. The committee heard testimony from FBI Director James Comey on the agency’s decision not to pursue charges and a newly revealed set of controversial immunity deals given to Clinton’s staff. Jackson

The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to reject President Barack Obama´s veto of a bill allowing relatives of the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia, the first veto override of Obama´s eight-year-long presidency. The vote was 348-76, well above the two-thirds majority needed for an override. The Senate earlier opposed the veto by 97-1, so the "Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act" will become law. The veto override is a blow to Obama, and to Saudi Arabia, one of the longest-standing US allies in the Arab world. Obama said the Justice Against Sponsors of

In the face of Republican Donald Trump´s disruptive candidacy, several local newspapers have broken with tradition this election to endorse his Democratic opponent, despite their long traditions of supporting GOP candidates. Here are some of the newspaper editorial boards that have shocked some by abandoning their usual political party of preference because of Trump. The Arizona Republic — The Arizona Republic threw its support behind Hillary Clinton Tuesday evening, breaking its more than 120-year-old streak of endorsing only Republican candidates for president. "[W]e have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never," the paper said. "This reflects a

Comic book legend and Marvel mastermind Stan Lee recently took time out of his schedule to travel to Georgia to film four cameos in a single day for upcoming Marvel films. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige discussed the filming at a Q&A session that followed a Friday screening of “Captain America: Civil War.” The 93-year-old Lee, who with several artists created many of comics’ most iconic characters, including Spider-Man, the Hulk and Iron Man, has had cameo appearances in nearly every Marvel live-action film, and neither Feige nor Lee seem interested in that trend ending any time soon. But neither
