NH GOP Chief Jennifer Horn Fights
Resignation Calls After She Slams Trump
Breitbart Big Government, by Matthew Boyle    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 11/26/2015 3:20:00 AM     Post Reply
New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn is fighting off calls for her resignation after she violated the bylaws of her own state party by attacking GOP candidate Donald Trump. WMUR, a local New Hampshire news outlet, first reported the calls for her resignation by GOP state Rep. Steve Stepanek of Amherst, New Hampshire. “It doesn’t matter if it’s Donald Trump or Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% or anyone else,” Stepanek said. “I’d still be calling for her resignation because she is violating the bylaw and hurting the Republican Party of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire primary.” He added: Donald

Why the Facts of American

Can you endure more discussion of Donald Trump, Jersey City, and 9/11? From the Tuesday edition of the Morning Jolt: As discussed Sunday night, there is no television footage of “thousands and thousands” “cheering as the World Trade Center came down,” and it certainly was not “well-covered at the time.” There was footage of Palestinians and Arabs celebrating in East Jerusalem on September 11. (You would be amazed how many Trump fans sent me that video, without bothering to check where the footage was recorded.) It is likely that Trump is mixing up the East Jerusalem footage with rumors of

Rush Limbaugh is a hypocrite

In the summer of 1992, Rush Limbaugh saved me from myself. I was an 18-year-old high school graduate about to begin college, too impatient to wait for adulthood to come to me. So instead, I went in search of it the only way I knew how: by engulfing myself in presidential politics and the fascinating campaigns that summer between Bill Clinton, George Bush and Ross Perot. Like many idealistic teens, I was at first drawn to the youthful Clinton campaign and Fleetwood Mac´s cheerful command to "Don´t stop thinking about tomorrow." But then I started listening to Limbaugh and it

An article on the government-administered museum’s blog, Smart News, claims one of the designers of Lady Liberty drew inspiration from monuments in Egypt and originally intended to construct a veiled female peasant on the Suez Canal. The article cites historian Barry Moreno, author of multiple books about the statue, whose Islamic origins were also reported last week by The Daily Beast. “Taking the form of a veiled peasant woman, the statue was to stand 86 feet high, and its pedestal was to rise to a height of 48 feet,” Moreno writes in “The Statue of Liberty.” The design of the

If you were wondering what the Spanish word for “Solyndra” is, this week provided the answer: “Abengoa.” Abengoa is a Spanish company that was another of President Obama’s personally picked green energy projects, and it’s now on the verge of bankruptcy too, potentially saddling taxpayers with a multibillion-dollar tab and fueling the notion that the administration repeatedly gambles on losers in the energy sector. The renewable energy firm, which is constructing several large-scale solar power projects in the U.S. and has received at least $2.7 billion in federal loan guarantees since 2010, said Wednesday it will begin insolvency proceedings, a

Russia announced plans Wednesday to deploy long-range surface-to-air missiles at its air base near the Syria-Turkey border to destroy any target that threatens its warplanes in the area — an angry response to Turkey’s downing of a Russian fighter jet, which raised fears of a direct clash between Russia and NATO. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the deployment of S-400 missiles in Syria as he and other officials in Moscow escalated a war of words with Ankara after Tuesday’s shootdown, which Turkey claims was justified on grounds that two Russian fighters ignored repeated warnings to change direction after entering Turkish

CHICAGO — Leaders of the Chicago City Council’s black caucus called Wednesday for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to remove his police chief, Garry McCarthy, one day after authorities released a graphic video showing a white police officer fatally shooting an African American teenager last year. Prosecutors charged the veteran officer, Jason Van Dyke, with first-degree murder on Tuesday. But the move did not defuse the anger rippling across parts of this city. Groups of protesters returned to the streets Wednesday, and parents of individuals slain by police demanded action from Emanuel’s administration. Although demonstrations by several hundred Chicago residents remained largely

During a two-day period early this week, the United States reported that coalition aircraft had conducted 23 strikes in Syria, destroying about three dozen Islamic State vehicles, buildings and tactical units. During the same two days, Russia said its aircraft had hit 472 “terrorist objectives” in Syria, including an Islamic State oil depot, an “oil production plant” and 80 tanker trucks. The numbers were fairly typical of descriptions separately released nearly every day by the U.S.-led coalition and the Russian Defense Ministry. In the eight weeks since Russia began air operations in Syria, its military claims to have flown many

The World Values Survey asked respondents in more than 80 different countries to state the type of people they did not want as neighbours. Over 40 per cent of respondents in India, Jordan, Bangladesh and Hong Kong said they would not want a neighbour of a different race. The British were among the most tolerant, along with former colonies the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. People in Latin American counties were also prepared to embrace racially diverse neighbours. The data from the survey by Niclas Berggren and Therese Nilsson was mapped by the Washington Post by Max Fisher.

Yes, we should consider refugees’ religion
Politico, by Michael W. McConnell    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 11/25/2015 10:15:49 PM     Post Reply
Americans have heard a lot of nonsense in the past week about the role of religion in our refugee policy – from both sides. Senator Ted Cruz has been derided, mostly justly, for saying that no Muslim refugees – but only Christians – should be admitted to this country from the killing fields of Syria and Iraq. But President Obama’s angry reaction that use of a “religious test” for evaluating asylum seekers would be “shameful” and “not American” is even more wrongheaded. “That´s not who we are,” he said to an audience in Turkey, apparently in response to Cruz.

Like pretty much else in this race for the White House as it pertains to Donald Trump, this Muslims-celebrating-in-Jersey-after-9/11-story dominating the narrative for days is a fascinating study in media process. Before we continue, a little background from the author: I was in New York on 9/11. I lived in Jersey (still do) at the time. I, like the rest of the country, watched the news non-stop for days, weeks after the attacks. And while I do vividly remember images coming out of the Middle East of people openly celebrating the attacks (that one older woman with big glasses snapping

Immigration: Most Americans don´t know it, but Cuba and its Latin American enablers are conspiring to create a ratline for unchecked immigration into the U.S. Only Nicaragua is throwing a monkey wrench into the scheme. That would be wretched, far-left Nicaragua. In any normal nation, leaders would be ashamed if large numbers of their nationals found the country they live in so unbearable, their only wish is to leave. Not so Cuba. It lies about its colossal socialist failures and blames it all on Uncle Sam. Now there are signs the communist country is encouraging great waves of Cubans to illegally migrate

Nuclear Charade: The Obama administration admits to Congress that its nuclear pact with Iran has not been signed by the Iranian regime and has no legal force. Obama´s "tough diplomacy" is puff diplomacy. The White House´s latest updated "Strategy for American Innovation" left one innovation out: diplomatic pacts with other countries that don´t have to be signed. Maybe President Obama will say that it saves the taxpayers money, since it eliminates signing ceremonies in lavish locales. Going back to when, as a candidate, he expressed a willingness to talk directly with Iran, then through months of negotiations on its nuclear program, Obama never

WASHINGTON — American soldiers and airmen who killed and wounded dozens of civilians in a strike on an Afghanistan hospital violated US rules of engagement and have been suspended as they await disciplinary action that could include criminal charges, military officials said Wednesday. Briefing reporters on the results of two investigations, Gen. John Campbell, the US commander in Afghanistan, described an egregious series of human and technical failures that led a US warplane to destroy a medical charity’s hospital in northern Afghanistan last month. Campbell and other officials would not say how many people had been removed from their jobs

Earlier this month, when Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) named his top campaign representatives across Florida, he tapped a conservative activist named Clyde Fabretti as one of the leaders of his presidential effort in Orange County, a key district that includes Orlando. But Fabretti, the co-founder of the West Orlando Tea Party, has a sketchy background that might not reflect well on Rubio´s campaign: He is a convicted white-collar criminal with a history of questionable business dealings and associations with fraudsters. Most recently, Fabretti´s name surfaced in an ongoing lawsuit by investors in a tea-party-related media startup who claim he played

Regulation: As Americans sit down for their Thanksgiving feast, they likely don´t realize that another big, nonholiday-related expense is about to hit, courtesy of the Obama administration: a new wave of regulations. With little fanfare, the White House announced more than 2,000 new regulations — including 144 deemed "economically significant" — just before Thanksgiving. The law requires doing this twice a year, and Obama has followed it faithfully — repeatedly releasing rafts of costly new rules just days before holidays, when people are most distracted and not paying attention. Luckily, Heritage Foundation fellow James Gattuso is paying attention. He notes that the 144

Washington - Away from public view, US President Barack Obama signed a defense bill Wednesday barbed with measures designed to undo his bid to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay. In a terse statement, the White House said Obama has signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2016, along with several other pieces of legislation. Obama´s signature significantly lengthens the odds that he will be able to close Guantanamo before leaving office in early 2017. The $615 billion defense policy bill upholds a ban on transferring prisoners to the United States from the US naval base at Guantanamo

The Republican-controlled Senate is confirming President Obama’s judicial nominees this year at a slower pace than Democrats did after taking the Senate majority in 2007 under President George W. Bush, prompting court watchers to warn that politics is skewing the process. Two years after Democrats detonated the “nuclear option” to change the filibuster rules to speed judges through confirmation, they are facing the other side of the coin: Republicans in charge who are flexing their powers to slow down the process. Senators last week approved LaShann M. DeArcy Hall to a judgeship in New York, just the 10th judicial

Hollywood is bursting at the seams with big names vying to support liberal candidates. But one internationally recognized singer just broke the mold. In a BBC One special, 27-year-old Adele thanked former vice-presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin for her rise to fame. It was a compliment Palin couldn’t ignore. Their story goes back to 2008, when the two switched spots on Saturday Night Live due to a conflict in Palin’s campaign schedule. "The week I was doing [Saturday Night Live], it was meant to be a normal week but the week after, Sarah Palin was supposed to do

Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head ´em up, move ´em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates?[SNIP]But the truth is that Jeb´s position on the illegals is at odds with the overwhelming majority of Republican voters. And so is Marco Rubio --

The United States has issued 680,000 green cards to immigrants of Muslim-majority countries, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The green cards were issued within the last five years and will be reissued again in five years. Among the people who received green cards are individuals who entered the United States as refugees. The data, released by Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) 82%, adds that these, “refugees have instant access to federal welfare and entitlements, along with local benefits and education services; these costs are not offset.” The release from Sessions notes that “Assuming no change in

The Hennepin County attorney’s office received a deadline extension Wednesday to decide if charges will be filed against four men arrested in connection with the shooting of five protesters near the Fourth Precinct police station earlier this week. The shooting happened at about 10:45 p.m. Monday on Morgan Avenue N., about a block from the police station where protesters have been encamped since Jamar Clark was shot to death by police Nov. 15. Minneapolis police arrested three men Tuesday in connection with the shooting. Allen Lawrence “Lance” Scarsella III, 23, was arrested in Bloomington. Sources said Nathan Gustavsson, 21, of

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered that an ad campaign he didn’t like be removed from the New York City subway system, The Associated Press reports. The ads, which had been approved by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, featured Nazi imagery and were meant to promote an Amazon video series, “The Man in the High Castle.” They were plastered on the inside of the 42nd Street shuttle train that travels between Times Square and Grand Central Station. Additionally, the ad imagery wrapped around seats on the subway. The show is set after World War II, and explores what may have happened
