Washington Post: “6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008… Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2014/10/24/could-non-citizens-decide-the-november-election/

Could non-citizens decide the November election?

October 24, 2014

Could control of the Senate in 2014 be decided by illegal votes cast by non-citizens? Some argue that incidents of voting by non-citizens are so rare as to be inconsequential, with efforts to block fraud a screen for an agenda to prevent poor and minority voters from exercising the franchise, while others define such incidents as a threat to democracy itself. Both sides depend more heavily on anecdotes than data.

In a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies, we bring real data from big social science survey datasets to bear on the question of whether, to what extent, and for whom non-citizens vote in U.S. elections. Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races.

Our data comes from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES). Its large number of observations (32,800 in 2008 and 55,400 in 2010) provide sufficient samples of the non-immigrant sub-population, with 339 non-citizen respondents in 2008 and 489 in 2010. For the 2008 CCES, we also attempted to match respondents to voter files so that we could verify whether they actually voted.

How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.

We also find that one of the favorite policies advocated by conservatives to prevent voter fraud appears strikingly ineffective. Nearly three quarters of the non-citizens who indicated they were asked to provide photo identification at the polls claimed to have subsequently voted.

An alternative approach to reducing non-citizen turnout might emphasize public information. Unlike other populations, including naturalized citizens, education is not associated with higher participation among non-citizens. In 2008, non-citizens with less than a college degree were significantly more likely to cast a validated vote, and no non-citizens with a college degree or higher cast a validated vote. This hints at a link between non-citizen voting and lack of awareness about legal barriers.

There are obvious limitations to our research, which one should take account of when interpreting the results. Although the CCES sample is large, the non-citizen portion of the sample is modest, with the attendant uncertainty associated with sampling error. We analyze only 828 self-reported non-citizens. Self-reports of citizen status might also be a source of error, although the appendix of our paper shows that the racial, geographic, and attitudinal characteristics of non-citizens (and non-citizen voters) are consistent with their self-reported status.

Another possible limitation is the matching process conducted by Catalist to verify registration and turnout drops many non-citizen respondents who cannot be matched. Our adjusted estimate assumes the implication of a “registered” or “voted” response among those who Catalist could not match is the same as for those whom it could. If one questions this assumption, one might focus only on those non-citizens with a reported and validated vote. This is the second line of the table.

Finally, extrapolation to specific state-level or district-level election outcomes is fraught with substantial uncertainty. It is obviously possible that non-citizens in California are more likely to vote than non-citizens in North Carolina, or vice versa. Thus, we are much more confident that non-citizen votes mattered for the Minnesota Senate race (a turnout of little more than one-tenth of our adjusted estimate is all that would be required) than that non-citizen votes changed the outcome in North Carolina.

Our research cannot answer whether the United States should move to legalize some electoral participation by non-citizens as many other countries do, and as some U.S. states did for more than 100 years, or find policies that more effectively restrict it. But this research should move that debate a step closer to a common set of facts.

Compare and Contrast: DONALD TRUMP vs OBAMA on Tyrant Fidel Castro’s Death

Compare and Contrast: DONALD TRUMP vs OBAMA on Tyrant Fidel Castro’s Death

November 26, 2016

Cuban Communist Fidel Castro finally died last night.

He was 90 years old.

Barack Obama and Donald Trump both released statements on Castro’s death.

President Barack Obama released a statement Saturday morning on Castro’s death.

Obama would not condemn this evil man.

Instead, Obama said “history will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”

What the hell was that supposed to mean?

Via The White House:

Statement by the President on the Passing of Fidel Castro

“At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”

“For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements. During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity. This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.”

“Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future. As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.”

###

Now here is President-elect Donald Trump’s statement that was just sent out:

President-Elect Donald J. Trump Statement

“Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”

“While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.”

“Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.”

Defcon nuclear threat REDUCED to safest level following Donald Trump victory

Update: The “Defcon Warning System” mentioned in this article is NOT the official DEFCON system that we are all familiar with. Instead, it is a completely DIFFERENT organization which deliberately tries to trick people. And I fell for it. My error. I apologize.

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/732135/donald-trump-election-defcon-reduced-level-5-safest-level

Defcon nuclear threat REDUCED to safest level following Donald Trump victory

America’s Defcon warning level has been reduced to its safest threat level possible following Donald Trump’s shock presidential election win

November 15, 2016

The Defcon Warning System, a private organisation which monitors world events and estimates the nuclear threat against America, is now at Level 5 – its lowest possible state.

Just weeks ago the warning was accelerated to Level 3 following increased tensions between US and Russia, with insiders fearing the West was creeping closer to nuclear war.

Level 3 means US troops could be mobilised in as little as 15 minutes.

But the group, made up of experts claiming to have contacts within the US security industry, have seen Donald Trump’s election win as a pacifier for Russian relations.

The group wrote on its website: “The United States took a tentative step toward a more isolationist policy with its recent presidential election.

“While it will take several months to see how the US reforms its foreign policy, already some world leaders have expressed hope that relations could improve, including Russia and Syria.

“If the new US President keeps to his previous statements, look for the United States to withdraw somewhat from military confrontations in the Middle East and possibly European theatre, though it is highly unlikely it will abandon NATO commitments, and the Ukraine will likely pop up again in the near future.

“Russia, however, will probably wait to see what the new President does, as well as now being hampered by the coming winter.”

Donald Trump’s election as president of America was welcomed by Vladimir Putin, leader of the US’ biggest rival Russia.

He said he hoped the pair would be able to work well together towards a more friendly relationship between the two superstates.

The group did warn, however, about some remaining threats to US and world security.

It said: “China and North Korea … continue to either cast a wary eye or are outright belligerent. Israel … will become more of a focal point again.

“Meanwhile, more troops are to be sent to Europe in 2017 to bolster defences against Russian movements and NATO continues building up forces in Poland and surrounding areas to protect against a potential Russian assault.”

While the US government also uses the Defcon system, it is private and not available to the public, so public records are estimates.

Level 5 means the US Department of Defence should be at its lowest state of readiness for nuclear war.

Robert Creamer visited Obama’s White House 340 times

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/10/19/robert-creamer-okeefe-investigation-fame-visited-obamas-whitehouse-340-times/

Robert Creamer visited Obama’s White House 340 times

October 19, 2016

The political consulting firm Democracy Partners is at the center of the Project Veritas investigation exposing Democrat operatives instigating violence at Trump rallies and plotting potential voter fraud.

Robert Creamer is the founder of Democracy Partners and a frequent visitor to the Obama White House. Logs show Creamer making 340 visits to the White House, with 45 of those meetings including President Obama.

Creamer’s meetings at the White House include two meetings with President Obama in March 2011 and June 2013 where the total number of people is listed as just two. Presumably, just Creamer and Obama.

I just added 55 new items to my list of Obama’s lies, lawbreaking, etc.

Items 1 through 500 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/08/15/obama-252/

Items 501 through 1,000 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/obama-part-2/

Items 1,001 through 1,304 can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/obama-part-3/

Here are the 55 new entries:

1,250) A spokesperson for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton contradicted Clinton’s own statement about the 30,000 emails that Clinton had deleted from her private server

In March 2015, ABC News reported the following about the 30,000 emails that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had deleted from her private server:

“We went through a thorough process to identify all of my work-related emails and deliver them to the State Department,” she said, adding that all other emails were personal and pertained to matters such as “yoga routines,” “family vacations,” and “planning Chelsea’s wedding.”

In July 2016, Donald Trump said:

“I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens. That’ll be next. Yes, sir.”

Hillary for America senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan responded by saying:

“This has to be the first time that a major presidential candidate has actively encouraged a foreign power to conduct espionage against his political opponent… That’s not hyperbole, those are just the facts. This has gone from being a matter of curiosity, and a matter of politics, to being a national security issue.”

So, which is it?

Are all of the emails private and not related to work?

Or, are they a matter of national security?

They can’t be both.

So which is it?

1,251) The “most transparent administration in history” illegally ignored a Freedom of Information request regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedule

In 2015, Associated Press sued the Obama administration for illegally ignoring a Freedom of Information request regarding Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedule.

1,252) “Emails reveal how foundation donors got access to Clinton and her close aides at State Dept.”

In August 2016, the Washington Post reported:

Emails reveal how foundation donors got access to Clinton and her close aides at State Dept.

A sports executive who was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and whose firm paid Bill Clinton millions of dollars in consulting fees wanted help getting a visa for a British soccer player with a criminal past.

The crown prince of Bahrain, whose government gave more than $50,000 to the Clintons’ charity and who participated in its glitzy annual conference, wanted a last-minute meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

U2 rocker and philanthropist Bono, also a regular at foundation events, wanted high-level help broadcasting a live link to the International Space Station during concerts.

In each case, according to emails released Monday from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, the requests were directed to Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and confidante, Huma Abedin, who engaged with other top aides and sometimes Clinton herself about how to respond.

1,253) The “most transparent administration in history” said it would not release the rest of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedule until after the November 2016 election

In August 2016, the Obama administration said that it would not release the rest of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedule until after the November 2016 election.

1,254) The “most transparent administration in history” waited seven months to tell the public that it had airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran

In August 2016, it was reported that seven months earlier, the Obama administration had secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran.

1,255) The Obama administration lied about whether or not its payment of $400 million in cash to Iran was a ransom for releasing four American hostages

On August 2, 2016, the Obama administration said that the $400 million in cash that it had given to Iran in January 2016 had nothing to do with Iran releasing four American hostages.

However, on August 18, 2016, the Obama administration said that the payment was contingent on the hostages being released.

One of these two statements by the Obama administration must be a lie. I don’t even have to know which of the two statements is true, and which one is false, to know that one of them is a lie.

1,256) The “most transparent administration in history” refused to answer questions from Congress about how it paid an additional $1.3 billion to Iran

In August 2016, it twas reported that the Obama administration had paid $1.7 billion to Iran. Of that amount, $400 million was paid in cash as ransom for four U.S. hostages. However, the Obama administration refused to answer questions from Congress about how it paid the other $1.3 billion.

1,257) Commander-in-Chief Obama “killed entire families instead of ISIS fighters”

Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military. In July 2016, the Washington Post reported:

An airstrike in Syria killed entire families instead of ISIS fighters

The airstrikes at dawn on Tuesday pulverized entire families, including young children — families that were fleeing Islamic State militants but were instead mistaken for being those very fighters. Depending on whom you ask, the number of bodies found in the rubble is 56, 85, 160 or 212. Pictures of the mangled bodies, covered in dust, are a testament to the carnage.

People who live near where the bombs fell — about 10 miles north of Manbij in northern Syria — said the only planes they’d seen since June were from a U.S.-led coalition battling the Islamic State.

At least 56 civilians were killed in this incident.

1,258) Obama engaged in the same kind of “unconscionable ineptitude” that he had previously accused Bush of engaging in

After Hurricane Katrina, Bush flew over Louisiana. Obama accused Bush of “unconscionable ineptitude.”

However, in August 2016, after another hurricane in Louisiana, Obama played golf at Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.

1,259) After Secretary of State John Kerry said that air conditioning was just as big a threat as ISIS, the Obama administration ignored a petition to remove air conditioning from State Department buildings and vehicles

In July 2016, Secretary of State John Kerry said that air conditioning was just as big a treat as ISIS. In response, people signed a petition for the State Department to remove air conditioning from all of its buildings and vehicles. However, the State Department ignored the petition, and continued to use air conditioning in its buildings and vehicles, despite Kerry’s claim that air conditioning was as dangerous as ISIS.

1,260) After a Swedish telecom company called Ericsson paid Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s husband $750,000 for giving a speech, the Obama administration gave the company an exemption from U.S. sanctions

In November 2011, a Swedish telecom company called Ericsson paid Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton, $750,000 for giving a speech. In April 2012, Obama signed an executive order which placed sanctions on telecom sales to Iran and Syria. However, Ericsson was given an exemption from these sanctions.

1,261) Obama continued Bush’s policy of having the Veterans Administration spend millions of dollars on artwork while veterans were dying form lack of medical care

In July 2016, it was reported that Obama had continued Bush’s policy of having the Veterans Administration spend millions of dollars on artwork while veterans were dying form lack of medical care. Between 2004 and 2014, the agency had spent $20 million on artwork. Of this amount, $16 million happened during Obama’s presidency. A list of these artworks, including their prices, can be read here. 12 of these pieces of artwork had individual price tags of $250,000 or more, and of these 12, nine were purchased during Obama’s presidency.

1,262) Although patients at the Veterans’ Administration were dying due to lack of medical care, out of the 39,454 new jobs that it added between 2012 and 2015, fewer than 10% were doctors

In May 2016, on page 3 of this PDF, Open the Books reported:

While long wait times persisted the VA added 39,454 new positions to their payroll between 2012-2015. Fewer than ten percent of these new positions (3,591) were ‘Medical Officers,’ i.e. doctors.

1,263) Regarding the Obama administration’s $400 million dollar cash payment that was airlifted to Iran, White House press secretary Josh Earnest falsely said “There’s actually not anything particularly unusual about the mechanism for this transaction”

In August 2016, it was reported that seven months earlier, the Obama administration had secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran.

In August 2016, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said of this payment:

“There’s actually not anything particularly unusual about the mechanism for this transaction.”

However, Associated Press responded to Earnest’s comment with the following:

But diplomatic historians and lawyers with expertise in international arbitration struggled to find similar examples.

Asked to recall a similar payment from the United States using cash to settle an international dispute, the office of the State Department historian could not provide an example.

1,264) 17 of the 28 U.S., European, and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo had either donated to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation, or paid her husband to give speeches

The term “Skolkovo” refers to the U.S. government sharing biomed, space, nuclear, and IT technologies with other parties. In July 2016, it was reported that 17 of the 28 U.S., European, and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo had either donated to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s foundation, or paid her husband to give speeches.

1,265) Gave illegal aliens advice on how to illegally stay in the U.S. without getting arrested

In August 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had given illegal aliens advice on how to illegally stay in the U.S. without getting arrested.

1,266) Illegally kept private information about law abiding U.S. citizens who had legally purchased guns

When law abiding U.S. citizens legally purchase guns, a background check is conducted. Federal law requires the U.S. government to get rid of this private information after the sale has been completed. However, in August 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had illegally held on to this information.

1,267) State Department spent $185,000 of taxpayers’ money on a piece of artwork that was made from balls of thread, and was displayed in Islamabad, Pakistan

In August 2016, it was reported that the State Department had spent $185,000 of taxpayers’ money on a piece of artwork that was made from balls of thread, and was displayed in Islamabad, Pakistan.

1,268) Gave Somali Muslims a special tour of U.S. airport security where they were allowed to see areas that most U.S. citizens are not allowed to see

In August 2016, it was reported that the Department of Homeland Security had given Somali Muslims a special tour of U.S. airport security at      Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where they were allowed to see areas that most U.S. citizens are not allowed to see.

1,269) While Veterans were dying due to lack of medical care, the Veterans Administration spent millions of dollars to install solar panels that were never used because they were incompatible with the local electric grid

In 2013, while veterans were dying due to lack of medical care, the Veterans Administration spent millions of dollars to install solar panels at its facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. Two years later, the panels were removed and reinstalled to accommodate a new parking garage. However, the panels were never turned on in either of these installations, because they were incompatible with the local electric grid.

1,270) Although Obama supports tougher gun control laws for law abiding gun owners, he either pardoned or commuted the sentences of 107 federal inmates who had been convicted of gun crimes

Obama supports tougher gun control laws for law abiding gun owners. However, as of August 2016, he had either pardoned or commuted the sentences of 107 federal inmates who had been convicted of gun crimes.

1,271) Obama gave his own daughter an exemption from the federal laws against marijuana which he had prosecuted so many other people for

Item #7 on this list contains a huge number of examples of people who were prosecuted by Obama for smoking medial marijuana, despite the fact that it was legal in the states where they lived.

On the other hand, Obama refused to prosecute his own daughter, Malia Obama, for smoking recreational marijuana, which was reported here, including video evidence, on August 10, 2016.

Furthermore, on August 11, 2016 – the very next day – the Obama administration announced that it would continue to classify marijuana as an illegal and dangerous Schedule 1 drug.

For the record, I think that marijuana, both recreational and medical, should be legal. I don’t have any problem with Obama’s daughter smoking marijuana. It’s President Obama’s hypocrisy that I have a problem with.

1,272) The “most transparent administration in history” “altered intelligence reports to portray a more optimistic picture of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria”

In August 2016, the New York Times reported:

Military Officials Distorted ISIS Intelligence, Congressional Panel Says

Officials from the United States Central Command altered intelligence reports to portray a more optimistic picture of the war against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria than events on the ground warranted, a congressional panel said in a report issued Thursday.

The interim report, from a task force established by the Republican chairmen of the House Armed Services Committee, Intelligence Committee and Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, found “widespread dissatisfaction” among Central Command intelligence analysts, who said superiors were doctoring their assessments of American efforts to defeat the Islamic State. Central Command, known as Centcom, is the military headquarters in Tampa, Fla., that oversees American military operations across the Middle East and Central Asia.

“Intelligence products approved by senior Centcom leaders typically provided a more positive depiction of U.S. antiterrorism efforts than was warranted by facts on the ground and were consistently more positive than analysis produced by other elements of the intelligence community,” a news release about the report said.

“What happened at Centcom is unacceptable — our war fighters suffer when bad analysis is presented to senior policy makers,” said Representative Ken Calvert, Republican of California. “The leadership failures at Centcom reach to the very top of the organization.”

“Throughout the first half of 2015, many Central Command press releases, statements and congressional testimonies were significantly more positive than actual events,” the report said.

In August 2016, U.S. News & World Report reported:

Sailor Denied ‘Clinton Deal’, Gets 1 Year in Prison for 6 Photos of Sub

A former Navy machinist mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state.

Kristian Saucier’s attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been “engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier” with information of much higher classification. It would be “unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid,” attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill sentenced Saucier to one year in prison and a $100 fine, along with six months home confinement, 100 hours of community service and a ban on owning guns, his legal team says.

1,278) “U.S. Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars, auditor finds”

Obama is the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. military. In August 2016, Reuters reported:

U.S. Army fudged its accounts by trillions of dollars, auditor finds

The United States Army’s finances are so jumbled it had to make trillions of dollars of improper accounting adjustments to create an illusion that its books are balanced.

The Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a June report, said the Army made $2.8 trillion in wrongful adjustments to accounting entries in one quarter alone in 2015, and $6.5 trillion for the year. Yet the Army lacked receipts and invoices to support those numbers or simply made them up.

Bahrain’s Prince Got Audience With Clinton After Donating $32 Million To Her Foundation

Newly released Department of State documents reveal that the Crown Prince of Bahrain was given an audience with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after he donated $32 million to her foundation.

The documents, released Monday by Judicial Watch, included emails between Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band and former Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin, which appear to show that Abedin acted as a middleman between Clinton and her foundation’s donors.

Band and Abedin’s email exchanges show that Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman had to go through the Clinton Foundation in order to set up a meeting with Clinton after the former Secretary of State declined to meet after official requests were made.

1,281) As part of the “most transparent administration in history,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton illegally ignored 237 of the 240 Freedom of Information requests that she had received

In August 2016, Judicial Watch reported:

Hillary State Dept. Helped Jailed Clinton Foundation Donor Get $10 Mil from U.S. for Failed Haiti Project

The new batch of emails showing that the State Department gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state brings to mind the case of a shady Miami businessman serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions. His name is Claudio Osorio, a Clinton Foundation donor who got $10 million from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings.

Osorio got the money from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), a federal agency that operates under the guidance of the State Department, to build houses in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. The OPIC supposedly promotes U.S. government investments abroad to foster the development and growth of free markets. Osorio’s “Haiti project” was supposed to build 500 homes for displaced families in the aftermath of the earthquake. The project never broke ground and Osorio used the money to finance his lavish lifestyle and fund his illicit business ventures. He also ran a fraudulent international company with facilities in the U.S., United Arab Emirates, Germany, Angola and Tanzania that stole millions from investors. Some of the OPIC Haiti money was used to repay investors of his fraudulent company (Innovida), according to federal prosecutors. In September 2013, Osorio was sentenced to 150 months imprisonment and three years of supervised release.

1,293) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her private server for email which contained information about the whereabouts and plans of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was one of four U.S. citizens who were murdered by Islamic militants in the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012

While Veterans were dying due to lack of medical care, the Veterans Administration spent millions of dollars to install solar panels that were never used because they were incompatible with the local electric grid

In 2013, while veterans were dying due to lack of medical care, the Veterans Administration spent millions of dollars to install solar panels at its facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. Two years later, the panels were removed and reinstalled to accommodate a new parking garage. However, the panels were never turned on in either of these installations, because they were incompatible with the local electric grid.

In this instance, how is “paying for a speech” any different than “giving a bribe”?

In November 2011, a Swedish telecom company called Ericsson paid Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton, $750,000 for giving a speech. In April 2012, Obama signed an executive order which placed sanctions on telecom sales to Iran and Syria. However, Ericsson was given an exemption from these sanctions.

In this instance, how is “paying for a speech” any different than “giving a bribe”?

Obama’s double standard for people who illegally share classified information

In July 2016, it was reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had shared 22 emails that were marked “top secret” with three of her aides. These aides had not been cleared to receive such information, which means that it was illegal for Clinton to share the information with them. However, Obama refused to prosecute her.

However, in August 2016, one month later, U.S. News & World Report reported:

Sailor Denied ‘Clinton Deal’, Gets 1 Year in Prison for 6 Photos of Sub

Hypocrite Barack Obama gives his own daughter an exemption from the laws against marijuana which he has prosecuted so many other people for

All of the people cited below were prosecuted by President Obama for smoking medial marijuana, despite that fact that it was legal in the states where they lived.

On the other hand, President Obama refuses to prosecute his own daughter, Malia Obama, for smoking recreational marijuana.

The below image comes from http://radaronline.com/photos/malia-obama-smoking-pot-claims-lollapalooza-twerking-video/photo/1329712/

There’s also this video from YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIK9fG-RA9M

In May 2008, Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt said that Obama would end DEA raids on medical marijuana in states where it’s legal. Also in 2008, Obama said that he supported the “basic concept of using medical marijuana for the same purposes and with the same controls as other drugs” and that he was “not going to be using Justice Department resources to try to circumvent state laws.”

However, in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana grower in Highlands Ranch in Colorado, a state where medical marijuana is legal. Also in February 2010, DEA agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in Culver City in California, a state where medical marijuana is legal. In July 2010, the DEA raided at least four medical marijuana growers in San Diego, California. Also in July 2010, the DEA raided a medical marijuana facility in Covelo, California. Then in September 2010, the DEA conducted raids on at least five medical marijuana dispensaries in Las Vegas, Nevada, where medical marijuana is legal. In 2011, the DEA conducted raids on medical marijuana in Seattle, Washington, West Hollywood, California, and Helena, Montana, all places where it is legal. In April 2012, the DEA carried out several raids on medical marijuana in Oakland, California.

In February 2012, Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Obama’s war against medical marijuana went “far beyond anything undertaken by George W. Bush.” In April 2012, Mother Jones magazine wrote: “The president campaigned on the promise that he’d stop federal raids on medical marijuana operations that were in compliance with state laws, a vow that Attorney General Eric Holder repeated after the election. But then the Obama administration raided more than 100 dispensaries in its first three years and is now poised to outpace the Bush administration’s crackdown record.” In May 2012, the Washington Post wrote: “Obama has become more hostile to medical marijuana patients than any president in U.S. history.” In May 2012, U.S. Congressperson Nancy Pelosi (D-California) said she had “strong concerns” about Obama’s forced closure of five medical marijuana facilities in Pelosi’s congressional district. In April 2012, commenting on Obama’s crackdown on medical marijuana, U.S. Congressman Barney Frank (D-Massachusetts) said, “I’m very disappointed… They look more like the Bush administration than the Clinton administration.”

In July 2012, federal prosecutors filed civil forfeiture actions against Harborside Health Center, a medical marijuana dispensary in Oakland, CA, which claims to be the world’s largest, and which claims to serve more than 100,000 medical marijuana patients. In April 2012, federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, an educational institution in Oakland, CA, which teaches people about medical marijuana. In April 2012, federal agents raided a medical marijuana facility which had been serving 1,500 patients near Lake Elsinore, CA. In June 2012, the Obama administration filed asset-forfeiture lawsuits against two landlords who rented their buildings to medical marijuana stores in Santa Fe Springs, CA. The Obama administration also sent warning letters which threatened similar legal action to dozens of other, nearby landlords. During the first seven months of 2012, the DEA shut down 40 medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, all of which had been operating in compliance with state and local law.

In April 2013, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California. Also in April 2013, the DEA raided a medical marijuana dispensary in San Diego, California. In July 2013, the DEA conducted multiple medical marijuana raids in Washington state, including the cities of Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle. In August 2013, the DEA raided People’s Choice Alternative Medicine, a medical marijuana facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In October 2013, the DEA raided 28 medical marijuana facilities in Michigan. In November 2013, the DEA raided 12 medical marijuana facilities in Denver, Colorado.

In April 2014, the DEA raided four medical marijuana dispensaries in Denver, Colorado. In June 2014, DEA agents visited the homes and offices of doctors in Massachusetts who had written prescriptions for medical marijuana, and threatened to confiscate their federal licenses to prescribe certain medications if they did not stop writing prescriptions for medical marijuana. In October 2014, the DEA raided two medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles, California.

In May 2012, ABC News reported that during Obama’s youth, he often smoked large quantities of recreational marijuana.  Obama’s marijuana smoking wasn’t even medical – it was recreational. And yet now, he is taking large scale, widespread action to prevent people with AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, and other illnesses, who have prescriptions from their doctors, from using their prescription medicine – how cold hearted can a person be?

In 2016, CNN reported the following about the high levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan:

The EPA says anything over 15 ppb is unsafe, and Walters’ home tested at more than 13,000 ppb.

Emails show that it was 11 months from the time that an EPA official first expressed concern over high levels of lead in Walters’ home — and seven months from when Del Toral wrote his draft memo — until the EPA issued an emergency order in Flint.

1,209) A statement by Obama on the use of guns for self defense contradicted a previous study which had been funded by his own administration

In January 2016, Obama said:

“And so if you look at the statistics, there’s no doubt that there are times where somebody who has a weapon has been able to protect themselves and scare off an intruder or an assailant. But what is more often the case is that they may not have been able to protect themselves but they end up the victim of the weapon that they purchased themselves.”

However, a 2013 study which had been funded by the Obama administration stated:

“Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”

1,212) Pressured Ally Bank to pay a settlement for racial discrimination even though there was no evidence that the bank had actually engaged in racial discrimination

In February 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had pressured Ally Bank to pay a settlement for racial discrimination even though there was no evidence that the bank had actually engaged in racial discrimination.

1,213) Continued Bush’s policy of spending $5.7 billion of taxpayers’ money on a cyber defense system that did not work

In February 2016, it was reported that the administrations of Bush and Obama had spent a combined total of $5.7 billion of taxpayers’ money on a cyber defense system that did not work.

1,217) After Obamacare caused Obama supporting graduate students at the University of Missouri to lose their insurance, they falsely blamed it on the school

In August 2015, the University of Missouri issued the following message to its graduate students:

“The Affordable Care Act prevents employers from giving employees money specifically so they can buy health insurance on the individual market. Graduate teaching and research assistants are classified as employees by the IRS, so they fall under this ruling.”

However, in November 2015, left wing graduate students who had voted for Obama, falsely blamed their loss of insurance on the school, instead of on Obamacare.

In April 2016, it was reported that the State Department official who had approved visas for 11 of the September 11, 2001 terrorists was still employed by the federal government.

1,220) Ben Rhodes, the person whom Obama chose to be his lead foreign policy advisor, has a master’s degree in fiction, and has no experience or training in foreign policy

In May 2016, the New York Times reported:

The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru

How Ben Rhodes rewrote the rules of diplomacy for the digital age

Rhodes writes the president’s speeches, plans his trips abroad and runs communications strategy across the White House, tasks that, taken individually, give little sense of the importance of his role. He is, according to the consensus of the two dozen current and former White House insiders I talked to, the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Potus himself.

His lack of conventional real-world experience of the kind that normally precedes responsibility for the fate of nations — like military or diplomatic service, or even a master’s degree in international relations, rather than creative writing — is still startling.

Having recently spent time working in Hollywood, I realize during our conversations that the role Rhodes plays in the White House bears less resemblance to any specific character on Beltway-insider TV shows like “The West Wing” or “House of Cards” than it does to the people who create those shows. And like most TV writers, Rhodes clearly prefers to imagine himself in the company of novelists.

Jon Favreau, then the campaign’s lead speechwriter, felt as if he could use a foreign-affairs expert who could write… “The idea of someone with a masters in fiction… seemed perfect for a candidate who put so much emphasis on storytelling.”

1,222) Gun control hypocrite Obama allowed the Secret Service to shoot an armed man outside the White House

When Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

However, in May 2016, as President, Obama allowed one of his Secret Service agents to shoot an armed man who was outside the White House.

1,223) “U.S.-funded Somali intelligence agency has been using kids as spies”

In May 2016, the Washington Post reported:

U.S.-funded Somali intelligence agency has been using kids as spies

MOGADISHU, Somalia — For years they were children at war, boys given rifles and training by al-Qaeda-backed militants and sent to the front lines of this country’s bloody conflict. Many had been kidnapped from schools and soccer fields and forced to fight.

The United Nations pleaded for them to be removed from the battlefield. The United States denounced the Islamist militants for using children to plant bombs and carry out assassinations.

But when the boys were finally disarmed — some defecting and others apprehended — what awaited them was yet another dangerous role in the war. This time, the children say, they were forced to work for the Somali government.

The boys were used for years as informants by the country’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA), according to interviews with the children and Somali and U.N. officials. They were marched through neighborhoods where al-Shabab insurgents were hiding and told to point out their former comrades. The faces of intelligence agents were covered, but the boys — some as young as 10 — were rarely concealed, according to the children. Several of them were killed. One tried to hang himself while in custody.

The Somali agency’s widespread use of child informants, which has not been previously documented, appears to be a flagrant violation of international law. It raises difficult questions for the U.S. government, which for years has provided substantial funding and training to the Somali agency through the CIA, according to current and former U.S. officials.

The child informants were used to collect intelligence or identify suspects in some of the world’s most dangerous neighborhoods, according to their accounts.

“They took me sometimes in a car and sometimes on foot and said, ‘Tell us who is al-Shabab,’­ ” recalled one 15-year-old who said he was held by the intelligence agency. “It’s scary because you know everyone can see you working with them.”

The teenager was one of eight boys interviewed by The Washington Post who described being forced to work as informants after leaving al-Shabab. The boys each spoke alone, through an interpreter, but their accounts were nearly identical. They said they spent years in the custody of intelligence agents and were dragged along on missions, sometimes several times a week. Occasionally, they were told to wear NISA uniforms. They were threatened with violence if they didn’t cooperate, several boys said. Their parents didn’t know where they were.

1,224) Illegally used taxpayers’ money to bail out Puerto Rico

In May 2016, it was reported that Obama had used taxpayer’s money to bail out Puerto Rico. Because Obama did this without approval from Congress, his action was illegal.

1,225) Former Obama speechwriters laughed at Obama’s promise that people could keep their health insurance

In May 2016, on “Charlie Rose: The Week,” former Obama speechwriters laughed at Obama’s promise that people could keep their health insurance. Video of this can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pkqn6wsrUfs

1,226) A federal judge ruled that some of the funding for Obamacare was unconstitutional

Hidden Microphones Exposed As Part of Government Surveillance Program In The Bay Area

OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed.

Imagine standing at a bus stop, talking to your friend and having your conversation recorded without you knowing.  It happens all the time, and the FBI doesn’t even need a warrant to do it.

Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations.

Jeff Harp, a KPIX 5 security analyst and former FBI special agent said, “They put microphones under rocks, they put microphones in trees, they plant microphones in equipment. I mean, there’s microphones that are planted in places that people don’t think about, because that’s the intent!”

FBI agents hid microphones inside light fixtures and at a bus stop outside the Oakland Courthouse without a warrant to record conversations, between March 2010 and January 2011.

1,228) A federal judge ordered lawyers from the Department of Justice to take ethics classes because they had lied to him in order to get Obama’s immigration program approved

1,232) The “most transparent administration in history” deleted online conflict of interest disclosures for top federal officials

In May 2016, it was reported that the Obama administration had deleted online conflict of interest disclosures for top federal officials.

The Daily Caller reported that before these online reports were deleted by the Obama administration, they had been:

… the primary tool that watchdog journalists, political activists and interested voters can use to guard against presidential appointees using their positions to enrich themselves or others….

… website featured a sortable, searchable list of over 1,000 government appointees, including their names, agencies and titles, and flagging new ones. By clicking on a name, users could easily access multiple disclosures for the appointee, including yearly financial accounting, stock ownership and a letter detailing any agreements surrounding conflicts, such as issues when the individual promises to recuse himself….

1,233) Obama extorted banks into making “donations” to some of his favorite left wing community organizing groups

In May 2016, it was reported that after Obama sued Citigroup and Bank of America over their actions regarding the collapse of the housing bubble, Obama told these banks that they would only have to pay 50 cents on the dollar if, instead of paying the settlement money to the actual victims, they “donated” the settlement money to some of Obama’s favorite left wing community organizing groups, including NeighborWorks and La Raza.

1,234) Obama’s refugee program continued to discriminate against Christian refugees from Syria, even though Christians in that country were being specifically targeted for persecution

Christians made up 10% of Syria’s population, and they were being specifically targeted by ISIS.

However, in May 2016, the Obama administration admitted 1,035 Muslim refugees from Syria into the U.S., but only two Christian refugees from that same country.

1,235) The “most transparent administration in history” edited a video of a press briefing to remove a question from Fox News correspondent James Rosen

1,242) The Obama administration knowingly allowed Omar Mateen to murder 49 people because it didn’t want to offend Muslims

In June 2016, an Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen murdered 49 people in Orlando, Florida.

Multiple people had warned the federal government that they thought Omar Mateen was going to commit a terrorist attack, but the government dismissed these complaints because, in the hierarchy of political correctness, not wanting to offend Muslims takes precedence over saving the lives of innocent U.S. citizens.

In 2013, Mateen’s coworkers reported to the FBI that Mateen had made terroristic threats, had told them that he had family connections to Al Qaeda, had told them that he was a member of a Shi’a terrorism organization, and had told them that he hoped to be a martyr (which wikipedia defines as “a man or woman who dies while conducting jihad”).

In response to all of these things, the FBI conducted a 10 month investigation into Mateen.

The FBI closed this 10 month investigation by falsely concluding that Mateen’s coworkers were “racist.”

Also in 2013, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara’s office reported to the FBI that Mateen had said that he could have al-Qaida kill one of Mascara’s employees and the employee’s family, and had also said that the Fort Hood shooter (an Islamic terrorist who murdered 13 people in Texas in 2009) was justified in what he had done.

The FBI investigated this, and falsely concluded that Mateen was “not a threat.”

1,243) Planned to removed references to Islamic terrorism from the transcripts of 911 calls made by Omar Mateen

In June 2016, an Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen murdered 49 people in Orlando, Florida.

During his attack, Mateen called 911 three times, and made references to ISIS and al-Baghadadi.

Afterward, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the FBI would remove references to ISIS and al-Baghadadi from the transcripts of these 911 calls before releasing them to the public.

However, after people complained about this, the FBI changed its mind and released transcripts with those references included.

1,244) Told federal employees who were investigating Islamic terrorism not to use words such as “jihad,” “sharia,” and “takfir”

In June 2016, the Department of Homeland Security told its employees who were investigating Islamic terrorism not to use words such as “jihad,” “sharia,” and “takfir.”

1,245) The Obama administration lied to Congress about the number of crimes committed by criminal illegal aliens after they had been released by the Obama administration

In July 2015, Immigration and Customs Enforcement told Congress that in 2014, criminal illegal aliens who had been released by the Obama administration had committed 1,423 additional crimes after they had been released.

However, in June 2016, a Freedom of Information request showed that the actual number was 13,288.

1,246) A federal judge ruled that the Obama administration’s fracking rules were illegal

In June 2016, Judge Scott Skavdahl of the District Court of Wyoming ruled that the Obama administration’s fracking rules were illegal because they had not been approved by Congress.

1,247) The “most transparent administration in history” allowed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to omit meetings with political donors, foundation contributors, and corporate interests from her official calendar

In June 2016, Associated Press reported:

An Associated Press review of the official calendar Hillary Clinton kept as secretary of state identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were not recorded or omitted the names of those she met.

The fuller details of those meetings were included in files the State Department turned over to the AP after it sued the government in federal court.

1,248) A federal judge said the Obama administration had acted illegally when it used a “stingray” to find a suspect’s apartment without a warrant

According to the Huffington Post, a “stingray” is “a surveillance device that can trick suspects’ cell phones into revealing their locations.”

In July 2016, U.S. District Judge William Pauley in Manhattan said that the Obama administration had acted illegally when it used one of these devices to find a suspect’s apartment without a warrant.

1,249) The “most transparent administration in history” continued Bush’s policy of allowing Hillary Clinton to use third parties to hide the true identities of many of the parties who paid her husband to give speeches

Hillary Clinton was a U.S. Senator during the Bush administration, and Secretary of State during Obama’s administration. While holding both jobs, it was often the case that instead of naming the true source of funding for paid speeches that were given by her husband, Bill Clinton, she listed middleman companies, such as “World Management Limited.”

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/12/obama-admin-sent-taxpayer-money-oust-netanyahu/

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

July 12, 2016

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.

He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.

Mr. Netanyahu survived the election, and the U.S. spending was not deemed illegal because the State Department never put any conditions on the money. Investigators also said OneVoice didn’t turn explicitly political until days after the grant period ended.

“The State Department ignored warnings signs and funded a politically active group in a politically sensitive environment with inadequate safeguards,” said Sen. Rob Portman, chairman of the investigative subcommittee. “It is completely unacceptable that U.S. taxpayer dollars were used to build a political campaign infrastructure that was deployed — immediately after the grant ended — against the leader of our closest ally in the Middle East. American resources should be used to help our allies in the region, not undermine them.”

Sen. Claire McCaskill, the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee, said the Obama administration followed the law.

But she said their investigation exposed “deficiencies” in the State Department’s policies.

OneVoice had been politically active in Israel’s 2013 elections, which should have been a red flag to U.S. officials to put strict controls on how American taxpayers’ money was spent, the investigation said.

While it wouldn’t have necessarily disqualified the group, the State Department should have written a specific prohibition against using American money to influence a foreign election, the subcommittee said.

It’s part of a pattern of bad behavior at the State Department. The Government Accountability Office reviewed more than five dozen department grants and found officials cut corners and missed red flags in 80 percent of them.

The State Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

Lynch: “Partial Transcript” Of Orlando 911 Calls Will Have References To Islamic Terrorism Removed

This is 100% consistent with a President who refuses to use the phrase “Islamic terrorism” to refer to Islamic terrorism, and who prefers to call it “workplace violence” instead.

Lynch: “Partial Transcript” Of Orlando 911 Calls Will Have References To Islamic Terrorism Removed

June 19, 2016

In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Attorney General Loretta Lynch says that on Monday, the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando nightclub shooter to the police during his rampage.

“What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,” Lynch said. “We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State].”

The Washington Post reported last week that the gunman made multiple phone calls while holding hostages: “The gunman who opened fire inside a nightclub here said he carried out the attack because he wanted ‘Americans to stop bombing his country,’ according to a witness who survived the rampage.”

Salon reported that: “Everybody who was in the bathroom who survived could hear him talking to 911, saying the reason why he’s doing this is because he wanted America to stop bombing his country.”

The Washington Post also noted that during his 911 call from the club, the gunman referenced the Boston Marathon bombers and claimed “that he carried out the shooting to prevent bombings, [echoing] a message the younger Boston attacker had scrawled in a note before he was taken into custody by police.”

FBI Director James Comey said at a press conference that the shooter’s past comments about Islamist groups were “inflammatory and contradictory.”

“We see no clear evidence that he was directed externally,” the president added. “It does appear that at the last minute, he announced allegiance to ISIL. But there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL, and at this stage there’s no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot.” ISIL is another name for ISIS, or the Islamic State.

Loretta Lynch says the FBI will release: “A printed transcript [that] will begin to capture the back and forth between him and the negotiators.”

“We’re trying to get as much information about this investigation out as possible,” she said.

Transcript:

LORETTA LYNCH: What we’re announcing tomorrow is that the FBI is releasing a partial transcript of the killer’s calls with law enforcement, from inside the club. These are the calls with the Orlando PD negotiating team, who he was, where he was… that will be coming out tomorrow and I’ll be headed to Orlando on Tuesday.

CHUCK TODD: Including the hostage negotiation part of this?

LYNCH: Yes, it will be primarily a partial transcript of his calls with the hostage negotiators.

CHUCK TODD: You say partial, what’s being left out?

LYNCH: What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.

CHUCK TODD: We’re not going to hear him talk about those things?

LYNCH: We will hear him talk about some of those things, but we are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance and that. It will not be audio, it will be a printed transcript. But it will begin to capture the back and forth between him and the negotiators, we’re trying to get as much information about this investigation out as possible. As you know, because the killer is dead, we have a bit more leeway there and we will be producing that information tomorrow.

“Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.”

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/june_2013/26_of_obama_supporters_view_tea_party_as_nation_s_top_terror_threat

26% of Obama Supporters View Tea Party as Nation’s Top Terror Threat

June 27, 2013

Half of all voters consider radical Muslims the bigger terrorist threat facing the nation, but supporters of President Obama consider the Tea Party to be as big a danger.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups. Two percent (2%) see the Occupy Wall Street movement as the bigger terrorist threat. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

However, among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29% see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent (26%) say it’s the Tea Party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims.

As for those who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75% consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat. Just one percent (1%) name the Tea Party.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 22-23, 2013 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Interestingly, while the Occupy movement was allegedly targeting the “one percent”, upper income Americans are more likely than others to see the Tea Party as the bigger terror threat. Among those who earn six-figure incomes, 21% consider the Tea Party the bigger threat, while just two percent (2%) say the same of the Occupy movement. Among Americans who earn less than $30,000 a year, 12% see the Tea Party as the bigger threat, and seven percent (7%) say that description best applies to the Occupy movement.

The Tea Party received a boost in popularity earlier this year following revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted it and other conservative groups. Most voters believe the targeting was politically motivated and that the decision was made in Washington.

Conservatives overwhelmingly see radical Muslims as the greater terror threat. Liberals are fairly evenly divided between radical Muslims and the Tea Party.

Twenty percent (20%) of government workers see the Tea Party as the nation’s bigger terror threat. Twelve percent (12%) of private sector workers hold that view.

Most voters today believe the federal government is a threat to individual rights.

Sixty-seven percent (67%) of voters think it is at least somewhat likely that terrorist groups will soon gain access to nuclear weapons, including 34% who feel it is Very Likely.

However, 57% believe economic challenges represent the biggest threat to the United States. Half as many (27%) see terrorist attacks as the biggest threat.

Obama allowed a Clinton Foundation donor with no intelligence experience to be on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board

People are supposed to get on these kinds of government boards based on their relevant qualifications, not on their pocketbooks.

This, by itself, means that neither Obama nor Clinton has either the moral or practical qualifications for being President.

I’m genuinely surprised that ABC News had the decency to report on this before the election. I mean, if this was a Republican, then yeah, sure. But for the Democratic candidate? Before the election? A mainstream source such as ABC News? Wow!

With just this one article, ABC News has already done more vetting for Clinton before the election, than it did with all of its articles on Obama before the election combined:

 

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/clinton-donor-sensitive-intelligence-board/story?id=39710624

How Clinton Donor Got on Sensitive Intelligence Board

June 10, 2016

Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff.

The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later.

Copies of dozens of internal emails were provided to ABC News by the conservative political group Citizens United, which obtained them under the Freedom of Information Act after more the two years of litigation with the government.

A prolific fundraiser for Democratic candidates and contributor to the Clinton Foundation, who later traveled with Bill Clinton on a trip to Africa, Rajiv K. Fernando’s only known qualification for a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB) was his technological know-how. The Chicago securities trader, who specialized in electronic investing, sat alongside an august collection of nuclear scientists, former cabinet secretaries and members of Congress to advise Hillary Clinton on the use of tactical nuclear weapons and on other crucial arms control issues.

Fernando’s history of campaign giving dated back at least to 2003 and was prolific — and almost exclusively to Democrats. He was an early supporter of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 bid for president, giving maximum contributions to her campaign, and to HillPAC, in 2007 and 2008. He also served as a fundraising bundler for Clinton, gathering more than $100,000 from others for her White House bid. After Barack Obama bested Clinton for the 2008 nomination, Fernando became a major fundraiser for the Obama campaign. Prior to his State Department appointment, Fernando had given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the William J. Clinton Foundation, and another $30,000 to a political advocacy group, WomenCount, that indirectly helped Hillary Clinton retire her lingering 2008 campaign debts by renting her campaign email list.

The appointment qualified Fernando for one of the highest levels of top secret access, the emails show.

And he continued to donate to Democrats, and to Clinton. He emerged as one of the first “bundlers” to raise money for Clinton’s 2016 bid. And in July 2015, he hosted a fundraiser for Clinton at his Chicago home. Fernando has also continued to donate to the Clinton Foundation. He now is listed on the charity’s website as having given between $1 million and $5 million.

Obama supporters seem to dislike my Obama book not because it’s false, but because it’s true

Some Obama supporters seem to have trouble handling the truth about him. This is the most recent amazon customer review of my book on Obama:

Why do people who write and believe this crap exist?

ByVictor Varelaon June 6, 2016

God awful!!! Why do people who write and believe this crap exist?

Note that this reviewer does not point out even one factual error in my entire book. Given that I make more than 1,200 criticisms of Obama in my book, and that the reviewer could not find even one factual error, I’d say that this reviewer dislikes my book not because it is wrong, but because it is right.

Gun control hypocrite Barack Obama allowed Secret Service to shoot armed man outside White House

When Barack Obama was an Illinois state Senator, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from rapists and murderers.

However, as President, Obama allowed one of his Secret Service agents to shoot an armed man who was outside the White House.

In other words, Barack Obama is a gun control hypocrite.

Two years after Obama revokes trademark protection for Washington Redskins, 90% of Native Americans say they are not offended by the term

In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive.

This sets a horrible precedent.

Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc. The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent, trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it offensive, then I can’t even begin to imagine how much damage this would cause to the concept of intellectual property, as well as to the arts, sciences, music, literature, movies, etc.

There is no such thing as a right to not be offended. The whole point of protecting free speech in the first place is to protect speech that some people might find offensive. If we only protected speech that was dull, bland, and non-controversial, there wouldn’t be much point to having such protection in the first place.

And now, two years later, we get a new reason for why Obama was not justified to do what he did: a poll by the Washington Post shows that 90% of Native Americans are not offended by the Washington Redskins name.
