Clinton’s personal email use –
despite clear rules – raises
double-standard questions
FoxNews, by Judson Berger and Catherine Herridge    Original Article
Posted By: kono- 3/6/2015 10:58:59 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton´s State Department for years was telling underlings not to use personal email -- even ousting an ambassador, the ex-diplomat says, in part over his Gmail habits -- despite the secretary of state herself ignoring that advice. The disconnect is now raising questions of a double standard during her tenure. An internal 2011 State Department cable, obtained by Fox News, shows Clinton´s office told employees not to use personal email for security reasons. A year later, then-U.S. ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration resigned amid a series of clashes with the department, including over email.

Rubio Snags Top Donor
Ahead of 2016
National Review, by Eliana Johnson    Original Article

Jeb Bush’s decision to run in 2016 has prompted plenty of speculation about whether there will be enough top-dollar donors, particularly in Florida, to accommodate Marco Rubio’s own presidential aspirations. These days, depending on how much money one has, it only takes one, and Rubio, it seems, has him. He is Miami billionaire Norman Braman, a former owner of the Philadelphia Eagles and the owner of a string of high-end Florida auto dealerships. He is one of the top five donors to Republican causes in the state of Florida and a longtime Rubio backer who has resisted the gravitational pull

Benjamin Netanyahu leavened his powerful account of what´s really at stake in the nuclear negotiations with Iran with a little history and a little wisdom from the Bible. And why not? The war against the terrorists in the Middle East is a war against evil men peddling a violent perversion of a religion. Everything about this conflict seems rooted in religion. Mr. Netanyahu´s speech and the wake that follows falls in the week of Purim, the Jewish celebration of the story of Esther, told in the Book of Esther as a triumph of good over evil and the rescue of

A Bernie Sanders presidential
bid would take on the billionaires
Los Angeles Times, by Mark Z. Barabak    Original Article

Bernie Sanders has no patience. No time for small talk, glad-handing, saying how great it is to be back in Iowa. The middle class is circling the drain, oligarchs are taking over the government, and people — wake up, people! — are obsessing about football and baseball and what Kim Kardashian is wearing if, he says, she´s wearing anything at all. He is angry, righteous, waving his arms, hollering and contemplating a run for president, which is why 150 Iowans have turned out on a numbingly cold evening to hear Vermont´s independent U.S. senator vent.

In his address to a joint meeting of Congress this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “My speech is not intended to show any disrespect to President Obama or the esteemed office that he holds.” Forgive me for believing the latter and not the former.

Obama: Type Of Racial Discrimination In
Ferguson Police Department Not Isolated
CBS DC & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/6/2015 10:33:12 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said the type of racial discrimination found in Ferguson, Missouri, is not unique to that police department, and he cast law enforcement reform as a chief struggle for today’s civil rights movement. Obama said improving civil rights and civil liberties with police is one of the areas that “requires collective action and mobilization” 50 years after pivotal civil rights marches brought change to the country. The president made his first remarks about this week’s Justice Department report of racial bias in Ferguson, which found officers routinely discriminating against blacks by using excessive force. “I don’t think

Touted with fanfare by city officials and then-Gov. Pat Quinn at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, a planned network of charging stations for electric vehicles was billed as an environmentally friendly project designed to be the best and largest in the country. But the green initiative fizzled badly, and now two former owners of a California-based company initially selected to build the sprawling Chicago-area network stand charged with fraud in an indictment made public Wednesday in Chicago´s federal court. Prosecutors alleged the pair, Mariana Gerzanych and Timothy Mason, falsely obtained almost $3 million in federal grants administered by the city of Chicago

Hillary Clinton won’t be presiding over a soul-searching press conference or sitting down for a come-clean interview about her use of a private email address any time soon — at least if everything goes according to her team’s plan. The former secretary of state and her advisers have decided to adopt a time-tested Clintonian approach: take a concrete step to ease the pressure, then wait out the storm, according to three sources with knowledge of her team’s approach. Their theory is that her late Wednesday tweet asking the State Department to release the 55,000 pages of emails she provided to the agency

Racial Politics: Unable to pin racism charges on Ferguson policeman Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, Attorney General Eric Holder is using half-baked data to manufacture a case of racism against his entire police force. Holder´s race-baiting civil rights crew combed through several years of Ferguson Police Department data on traffic stops, searches and arrests and "found a pattern of racial disparities in Ferguson´s police activities." "African Americans are overrepresented in FPD´s vehicular stops" and victims of "racial bias," Holder concludes in his report. He notes that blacks accounted for 85% of vehicle stops, "despite comprising only 67% of Ferguson´s

The United States Air Force announced new initiatives to recruit and retain more women and minorities, as Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James warned that those who choose to not understand “diversity and inclusion” will not thrive in the service. The changes include giving women shorter than 5 feet 3 inches waivers so they can meet the height requirements to become pilots and “gender-neutral standards for all jobs.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Thursday postponed a vote that had been expected next week on legislation allowing Congress to weigh in on any Iran nuclear deal. "It is clear that Senate Democrats will filibuster their own bill -- a bill they rushed to introduce before the White House cut a deal with Iran," Don Stewart, McConnell´s spokesperson, said in an email. "So, instead, the Senate will turn next to the anti-human-trafficking legislation while Democrats decide whether or not they believe they and Congress as a whole should be able to review and vote on any deal the

Eric Holder Uses Bogus “Disparate
Impact” Statistics To Frame DOJ
Ferguson Report
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: SoCalGal- 3/6/2015 10:03:45 AM     Post Reply
From the beginning of Eric Holder’s tenure as DOJ head he has used the cloudy social engineering concept of “Disparate Impact” to advance his civil rights position(s). Not coincidentally the same DOJ, during the same AG tenure, has fought religiously to keep each case that used Disparate Impact (as legal standing) from reaching higher courts.The reasoning is quite simple, “disparate impact” as a legal standard, while it might win you positional standing to drag a party to court, fails the “common sense standard” almost every time it is challenged. “Disparate Impact” uses statistics of consequences to argue the legality of intent.

Newly Relevant Benghazi

When the House created its Benghazi Select Committee last year, it seemed like a joke—derided by mocking Democrats and eye-rolling Republicans, who´d already run through multiple investigations and hearings on the U.S. consulate attack. Then the committee revealed Hillary Clinton had used multiple personal email accounts for official business at the State Department. And suddenly, Democrats are terrified—terrified that the Benghazi panel is about to become the House Select Committee to take down Clinton, their presumptive presidential nominee. “I did not want to believe it, but everything I’ve seen so far has led me to believe that this is an

February jobs report shows 295,000
jobs added, jobless rate 5.5%

The US economy had another month of relatively strong job creation, adding 295,000 jobs in February while reducing the nominal unemployment level to 5.5%. It’s the fourth month in a row of good numbers, although January’s previous 257,000 level was revised downward to 239,000 by the BLS. The status of workforce participation didn’t budge from its 36-year low, however, and recent economic indicators may signal tighter times ahead for American workers: Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 295,000 in February, and the unemployment rate edged down to 5.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.

The mainstream media’s ‘Grouse of the Day’ shouldn’t be why Hillary Clinton reportedly will not be taking any questions at the Toner Prize Celebration, an event honoring “excellence in journalism”, but why Clinton, of all people, would be keynote speaker at such an event. “Organizers of the March 23 Toner Prize Celebration, which is named after the late New York Times reporter Robin Toner, told the Center for Public Integrity the event would be open to reporters. However, the keynote speaker, Clinton, does not plan to take their inquiries”. (Business Insider, March 5, 2015) Fire the speaker, and bring in someone else

“Simulated reality,” according to Wikipedia, “is the hypothesis that reality could be simulated—for example by computer simulation—to a degree indistinguishable from ‘true’ reality.” What motivated Hillary Clinton to create a private email system, argues James Taranto, is that it gave her the means to simulate her own reality, or as Bloomberg’s journalists put it “a high level of control over communications, including the ability to erase messages completely, according to security experts who have examined Internet records.” “You erase it and everything’s gone,” Matt Devost, a security expert who has had his own private e-mail for years.

It´s almost 30 months exactly since that awful, murderous night in Benghazi when the United States ambassador was killed, the first such fatality in three decades, along with three other dedicated government workers. President Obama has never deigned to tell his countrymen where he was and what he was doing during that long, deadly darkness that saw no military response or rescue attempt. Nor has Hillary Clinton explained why, despite repeated pleas for more security, she actually allowed cuts in consulate protection a month before the 9/11/12 attack. But Obama aides proudly informed media that upon learning of the consulate

Fight over voting rights continues

With tens of thousands of people expected to gather this weekend in Selma, Ala., to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a turning point in the American Civil Rights movement, activists hope to use the moment to turn the spotlight back on voting rights issues in the USA. (Snip) The protesters of Selma ultimately prevailed, and the moment helped usher in the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965. But in moves that activists call sweeping erosions of voting rights that disproportionately affect minority communities, several states have passed more stringent voter ID rules after the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down

Just call it Goretopia: While Hillary Rodham Clinton addresses multiple political challenges, the press continues to spiral off into speculation. Who is the Democratic standard bearer should she decide against running for president? In the last 24 hours, Al Gore has made the list. Now 66, the former vice president remains stubbornly active in global warming issues; he is, in fact, going to Iowa — but not for campaign reasons. He’s teaching a climate “leadership” workshop in Cedar Rapids. All that aside, there is momentum building here as Mrs. Clinton’s complications increase. More succinct are these headlines: “With Hillary imploding,

Hands up, don’t shoot? Lie. Gentle giant? Lie.

While concerns are rightly focused on the infectious disease risk to United States citizens via illegal immigration from Mexico and Central America, illegal immigrants from other regions also threaten the health of legal American residents. In addition to the large Mexican and Central American illegal immigrant population in the U.S., there are also hundreds of thousands of illegals from countries such as the Philippines (310,000 as of the latest Homeland Security estimate for 2012), India (260,000), South Korea (230,000), China (210,000), Ecuador (170,000), Vietnam (160,000), and about another 1.8 million from other countries.

There´s a rule in mathematics that also should apply to charges often made against the Clintons: No matter how high the number, if you multiply it by zero, it is zero.Fact: Hillary Clinton´s use of a private e-mail account when she was secretary of State was lawful. The law restricting such private accounts by public officials was changed in 2014. Thus, as to the e-mails "controversy," let´s agree on the facts, because innuendo and partisan attacks are the mathematical equivalent of "zero."

Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn´t count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress. A number of right-wing Republicans, long-wary of Boehner´s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama´s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they´d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach

In the race to the future, education is key. Everyone knows that. And yet, if that´s so, America may be in big trouble. U.S. millennials -- the demographic now aged roughly 16 to 34 years old -- scored poorly on an international test of literacy, math and technological problem-solving ability. So poorly, in fact, that Anita Sands, a researcher for the Educational Testing Service and co-author of a new report on the test, called the U.S. performance "abysmal." "We were taken aback," Sands told Washington Post Wonkblog writer Todd C. Frankel. "We tend to think millennials are really savvy in this

A common plot device in action movies is for terrorists to seize control of the air traffic control system, so they can crash plans into the ground or into each other. It´s always seemed a bit far-fetched, until this week. An alarming Government Accountability Office report finds that the Federal Aviation Administration has failed to take even basic steps to protect its air traffic control system from cyberattacks. As a result, "significant security control weaknesses remain," and "these shortcomings put (air traffic control) systems at increased and unnecessary risk of unauthorized access, use, or modification that could disrupt air traffic control operations." That, the
