Believing in my bones, as I do, that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are unworthy and unqualified to be president of the United States has drawn me more and more to the writings of the legendary H.L. Mencken and less-than-legendary Albert J. Nock. (Snip) Under Democrat Woodrow Wilson, the United States established the first modern ministry of propaganda, the Committee on Public Information. The Wilson administration jailed political dissenters by the thousands, encouraged the brown-shirt tactics of the American Protective League and censored newspapers and magazines with abandon.

From Brexit to Visions of a UN Exit?
PJ Media, by Claudia Rosett    Original Article

Britain´s vote last week to leave the European Union -- the Brexit -- was a vote for freedom, a revolt against an unaccountable bureaucracy in Brussels. Amid the excitement, Fox News briefly reported the story as even bigger than it was, with a TV screen banner proclaiming not that the U.K. was leaving the EU, but "UK VOTES TO LEAVE UN." Yes, some things are too good to be true, and this was one. As parody, it would have been genius. As a piece of news reporting, the Fox mixup of the EU and UN inspired plenty of derision -- a bit

The Islamic Republic of Iran has taken its $100 billion non-signing bonus on the Iran deal. With the cash in hand, it will ramp up its nuclear program and fund terrorism without financial constraints. The murderous terorist group Hezbollah is a chief beneficiary of Iran’s largesse. As Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah explained late last week: “We are open about the fact that Hezbollah’s budget, its income, its expenses, everything it eats and drinks, its weapons and rockets, are from the Islamic Republic of Iran.” At PJ Media, Bridget Johnson notes the deep thoughts of White House spokesman Eric Schultz when asked



Benghazi report details Clinton’s
malfeasance and nonfeasance
Washington Post, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has issued its report. The 800-page document is the result of an investigation that, according to the committee, encompassed 81 new witnesses and 75,000 pages of new documents. The report covers every aspect of the Benghazi scandal — the “before,” the “during,” and multiple phases of the “after.” At Hot Air, Larry O’Connor provides a good summary and Ed Morrissey homes in on the report’s finding that Hillary Clinton’s aide, Cheryl Mills, exercised undue influence over the Accountability Review Board (ARB) that investigated (sort of) Benghazi. This was malfeasance. Hillary Clinton, of course, figures heavily in

CARACAS, Venezuela — In the darkness the warehouse looks like any other, a metal-roofed hangar next to a clattering overpass, with homeless people sleeping nearby in the shadows. But inside, workers quietly unload black plastic crates filled with merchandise so valuable that mobs have looted delivery vehicles, shot up the windshields of trucks and hurled a rock into one driver’s eye. Soldiers and police milling around the loading depots give this neighborhood the feel of a military garrison. “It’s just cheese,” said Juan Urrea, a 29-year-old driver, as workers unloaded thousands of pounds of white Venezuelan queso from his delivery truck. “I’ve

An official in Turkey said on Tuesday night that the majority of those killed in the attack were Turkish citizens, while the Foreign Ministry in Israel said there is no indication that any Israelis were injured. Israeli passengers who were stranded at the airport following the attack were taken to nearby hotels until flights are renewed on Wednesday. The Foreign Ministry has opened an emergency hotline at +972-2-5303155. Turkish officials have confirmed that two suicide bombers detonated their explosives in the attack. Turkey´s Justice Minister initially told reporters that at least 10 people were killed in the attack, but senior Israeli officials in Turkey

United Kingdom Independence Party Leader Nigel Farage has a message for Donald Trump: The United Kingdom´s problems are factors worse than those in the United States. But if his comments Tuesday are any indication, he is not too fond of Hillary Clinton. "Donald Trump dares to talk about things other people want to brush under the carpet. What Mr. Trump is doing in America is very different than what I´m trying to do in the United Kingdom. My problem in politics is far greater than Donald Trump´s. We literally have lost our sovereignty, lost our borders, lost our ability," Farage told

Boris Johnson may appear shambolic. He is anything but. The UK’s possible next prime minister is an upper-class master of schmoozing and game-playing. Amid the post-referendum rending of garments over Brexit, it has become settled wisdom that it was older working-class voters who spearheaded the Leave vote. But plenty of older upper-class voters were just as rabid in their eagerness to stick it to the foreign busybodies across the Channel, and the oldest and most upper-class of them all was reportedly among them. There were ritual denials from the palace last week after the queen’s (pro-EU) biographer Robert Lacey, writing in The

With the summer Olympics just a few weeks away in Brazil, a veteran Al Qaeda operative released from Guantanamo to Uruguay has gone missing and authorities in Latin America believe he sneaked into Brazil after being denied legal entry. The Islamic terrorist’s name is Jihad Ahmad Diyab an in late 2014 President Obama sent him to Uruguay along with five fellow Gitmo inmates as part of a misguided plan to shut down the U.S. military prison at the Naval base in southeast Cuba. Now officials from Uruguay, Brazil and the United States are scrambling to find Diyab, according to news

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the official report from House Select Committee on Benghazi, revealing that the Obama administration never attempted to deploy military assets or troops throughout the entire 13-hour terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi: “The Select Committee report further confirms what Judicial Watch already uncovered through its independent investigations. Our investigation continues, as the Clinton email obstruction of our Benghazi FOIA lawsuit is the subject of court-ordered discovery. This report proves beyond all doubt that after four Americans died in Benghazi, the Obama administration lied.

Watchdog: Some texts to VA suicide

Almost 30 percent of text messages sent as a test to a crisis hotline for suicidal veterans went unanswered, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released Monday. “Our tests of text messages revealed a potential area of concern,” the report reads. The GAO report follows a scathing inspector general report from February that found some calls to the hotline were going to voicemail or didn’t receive immediate attention. The inspector general report prompted backlash in Congress, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in turn promised to fix issues in answering calls to the hotline. The GAO report also addressed the wait

Or is it that Bernie went the full Trump? Poll Americans on free trade over the last few years and you’re apt to find stronger support among Republicans than Democrats. Maybe that’s due to simple partisanship, i.e. Dems feeling tribally obliged to defend Obama’s trade deals, or maybe it’s due to left-wing professionals having less to fear from international competition than the right-wing working class, but it is what it is. A typical result from the recent PRRI survey:(Snip for graph) Here’s the full transcript of today’s speech. Could this message win Pennsylvania and Ohio if delivered consistently by a

As if clutching a get-out-of-prison card for their corrupt and convicted client, lawyers for former state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver cheered the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous decision Monday to vacate the conviction of ex-Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and make it tougher to prosecute government officials on the take. No, folks, nothing to see here in Silver’s proven acts of fraud and extortion, as found by a jury last November — just “conduct that is part of the everyday functioning of those in elected office,” Silver’s legal team crowed. Theirs is the delusion of the desperate and despicable.

The federal government spent more on anti-obesity rap songs, a soap opera series about HIV, and a device to monitor how long hotel guests spend in the shower than Congress spent investigating the attack in Benghazi, Libya. Democrats are very concerned that taxpayer funding went towards the investigation of the 2012 attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. They say the investigation has cost about $7 million. “We are issuing our own report today because, after spending more than two years and $7 million in taxpayer funds in one of the longest and most partisan congressional investigations

Leading climate doomsayer Michael Mann recently downplayed the importance of climate change science, telling Democrats that data and models “increasingly are unnecessary” because the impact is obvious. “Fundamentally, I’m a climate scientist and have spent much of my career with my head buried in climate-model output and observational climate data trying to tease out the signal of human-caused climate change,” Mr. Mann told the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee at a hearing. “What is disconcerting to me and so many of my colleagues is that these tools that we’ve spent years developing increasingly are unnecessary because we can see climate change,

"It seems at this point that ... after eight different congressional inquiries have now been conducted into this matter, it seems that there is only one remaining question, and it´s simply this: Is the RNC going to disclose the in-kind contribution that they received from House Republicans today?" Earnest said. "This was a $7 million effort, funded by

The New York senate has passed a bill which will prohibit universities from providing funding to student groups that “encourage hate speech.” Bill S8017, which was co-sponsored by Senators Jack Martins and Todd Kaminsky, is described as “relating to certain student groups that are ineligible for funding.” The legislation states that universities must “adopt rules that any student group that receives funding from the [university] that directly or indirectly promotes, encourages, or permits discrimination, intolerance, hate speech or boycotts against a person or group based on race, class, gender, nationality, ethnic origin or religion, shall be ineligible for funding.” However,

Benghazi Bombshell: No Evidence of

The House Select Committee on Benghazi report contains at least one major bombshell: the committee found no evidence of the “three directives” that President Barack Obama claimed he issued when he first learned about the ongoing terror attack. Neither the committee’s official report, nor the Democrats’ dissenting minority report, mentions the “three directives.” (In fact, President Obama barely features in the Democrats’ report at all, as if someone else were Commander-in-Chief that evening.) The Democrats’ report does mention a general instruction that Obama gave to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair General Martin Dempsey when

According to the upcoming report from the House Benghazi Committee, President Barack Obama skipped his personal daily intelligence briefing the day after the 2012 Benghazi attacks. The revelation is buried in one of the appendices to the 800-page report released by the Republican-controlled committee Tuesday. According to the Executive Coordinator tasked with delivering the daily briefings, she first delivered the briefing to White House chief of staff Jack Lew. But instead of giving Obama a briefing, she gave the folder to a White House usher. That day’s briefing contained a sentence claiming “the presence of armed assailants from the outset

A baby has been born in Florida with defects caused by the Zika virus after its mother traveled to the U.S. from Haiti to give birth. The mother - who has not been identified - contracted Zika abroad before entering the country, officials said. The child was born with microcephaly, a condition that causes babies to be born with shrunken heads and often leads to developmental issues. The baby is the fourth child to be born in the U.S. with defects caused by Zika after their mothers contracted the incurable virus while abroad. The Florida Department of Health confirmed the

The main airport for the capital, the Turkish Interior Ministry have confirmed two explosions were heard at the international hub. Multiple casualties have been reported, with at least 40 people feared injured. The Turkish Justice Ministry confirmed 10 people have been killed in the attack, which took place on Tuesday. Harrowing photos from the scene show people lying on the ground in pools of blood. Turkish officials have claimed it was a joint suicide attack, with two suspected attackers blowing themselves up. It is thought they detonated their explosives just before the x-ray security screening. Footage allegedly from the scene shows passengers cowering on

Istanbul — A Turkish official says two explosions have rocked Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, wounding multiple people. The official said Tuesday it was unclear whether the explosions were caused by bombs or a suicide attack. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government protocol. The state-run TRT television said an explosion hit a control point at the international arrival terminal of the airport. Other media reported the sound of gunfire at the scene. Turkey has suffered several bombings in recent months linked to Kurdish or Islamic State group militants. The bombings included two in Istanbul targeting tourists

When tourists arrive for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro this summer, they might be taken aback by the police and firemen who meet them at the airport. Brazil is in a state of disarray, and the confused priorities of big government have led to fire and police layoffs. As a result, cops and firefighters meet tourists at the airport with this sign, "Welcome to Hell." The sign adds, "Police and firefighters don´t get paid, whoever comes to Rio de Janeiro will not be safe." These public servants have been forgotten in the country´s massive corruption scandal. In April, the legislature voted

BRUSSELS — European leaders took a tough stance Tuesday against British efforts to leave the European Union, as leading exit campaigners appeared to accept that they may not be able to pick the best parts of E.U. membership while discarding the onerous ones. The showdown came as the E.U.’s 28 leaders gathered in Brussels for the first time since the shock British decision to split from the union. E.U. leaders are seeking to keep their bloc from fracturing even more, promising a hard-line stance against allowing Britain to retain coveted free access to the largest consumer market in the world
