Poll: Majority In Germany Wants Repatriation of Government Powers From EU

A poll in Germany shows just under two-thirds of voters want the European Union (EU) to return responsibilities to national governments.

The results of the Emnid survey of 1,000 eligible voters, published today by German television news channel N24, show 62 per cent of respondents want EU member states to become more powerful.

In what is either a refusal to accept the situation, or a position informed by previous plebiscites in the EU, the survey also found that a third of Germans believe Brexit will never happen — rising to 45 per cent of respondents under the age of 30 — irrespective of the outcome of the UK’s referendum in June which called for that.

In saying so they contradict Chancellor Angela Merkel (pictured) who, as Breitbart Newspreviously reported, has publicly stated that thinking the British decision is reversible is mere “wishful thinking”.


Desperate Dems Wheel Out 'Trust Hillary' Campaign

Because not even her own supporters trust her.

While Hillary Clinton spent 4 hours in the FBI’s company this weekend, Democrats set about one of the most difficult tasks they could possibly engage in, to convince the general public that Hillary is in any way honest and trustworthy.

The ‘trust Hillary’ talking point has begin to be heavily injected into public appearances and media outings by Democrats, presumably at the behest of party leaders who know that the American people, and even Hillary’s most staunch supporters, know she has built a career on deceit.

Sen. Sherrod Brown and Labor Secretary Tom Perez, both in the running as potential VP picks, appeared on Sunday news shows and made efforts to convince viewers that Hillary is honest.


Brawl at family event at North Carolina country club leaves one man dead and multiple people shot, stabbed and beaten

A massive brawl at a family event in North Carolina has left one man dead and several others who were either shot, stabbed or beaten hospitalized in serious condition.

Authorities responded to the brawl that broke out during a private party at the Lakewood County Club clubhouse in Salemburg around 2.30am and found several groups of people fighting.

'Responding deputies discovered several groups fighting upon their arrival and attempted to break up the fights,' a statement from the Sampson County Sheriff's Office said.

Three people were shot, one person was stabbed and two people were beaten during the massive fight, the sheriff's office said.

One victim, Anthony King, of Roseboro, died a few hours later from the injuries he sustained in the shocking incident.


What's Next for the College Snowflakes?

This past school year, colleges and universities saw some of the most embarrassing displays of student and faculty behavior ever witnessed in modern history.

Bolstered by a grievance culture that promotes victimhood, campus protesters demanded "safe spaces" from ideas they disagreed with and "trigger warnings" on readings that might make them uncomfortable. They accused those whose comments might seem slightly insensitive of committing "micro-aggressions."

They commanded their college administrations to change the names of buildings by judging past actions by today's standards. They protested speakers who they found controversial and they labeled as "hate speech" anything they found objectionable.

It was a year of humiliation for institutions of higher education, which found administrators giving in to the absurd and petty demands of the students they were supposed to be preparing for life as adults.

At Lebanon Valley College, students wanted to change the name of the "Lynch Memorial Building" because of the the word "lynch." It didn't matter that "Lynch" obviously referred to the name of a person — these special snowflakes couldn't handle seeing the word without his first name attached.

At Columbia, students requested a trigger warning to accompany Ovid's "Metamorphoses" because it contained a passage alluding to the rape of the Greek goddess Persephone.

The thinking, as it goes, is that anyone in the classroom who might have been raped (or a low-income student or student of color, according to the students who demanded the warning) would be traumatized if they were not adequately prepared for what they were about to read.

So how did we get here?

GOP billionaire: Trump worthy of Christian support

'Throughout history, God has harnessed imperfect people to fulfill' will

Foster Friess, a billionaire who donates generously to the Republican Party, said in a letter to supporters that Donald Trump deserves the backing of the evangelical community because God, throughout biblical history, has always tapped the imperfect to work his perfect will.

“[A]ll throughout history,” he wrote, “God has harnessed imperfect people to fulfill his perfect will. King David sent Bathsheba’s husband, Uriah, off to the front lines in hopes he would be killed so David could play cozy with the guy’s wife.”

He went on, saying he thought even the most “principled evangelical Christian woman” ought to support Trump, even if she had concerns about his morals and past indiscretions, the Washington Examiner reported. And, he reminded, “You and I are changing and so is Donald Trump,” the newspaper reported.


Why Does the European Union Insist On 'Free Movement'?

In his Bloomberg News column lamenting British voters' decision to leave the European Union and speculating on whether it could be reversed, British-born Clive Crook also (and more interestingly) challenged German Chancellor Angela Merkel's insistence that the "four freedoms" proclaimed by the European Union, including freedom of movement from country to county, are indivisible. "The price of access to the single market means freedom of movement," Merkel said.

Nonsense, Crook replies. "This position makes no substantive sense. The indivisibility of the four freedoms is a mere assertion — a preference, not a requirement of fairness or logic."

It's a point I hadn't thought of and it's indisputably true: you can rip down tariffs and trade barriers and still not allow foreigners to immigrate into your country. This is basically what the United States did in the 20 years after World War II.

So where does "freedom of movement" come from?

The Golf between Colleges and Common Sense

If laughter is the best medicine, then someone ought to take a copy of UNC's "microaggression" guidelines to every hospital in America! The memo, brainchild of the University of North Carolina's Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, is a new low for a politically correct movement that's already God's gift to late-night comedy. What is microaggression, you ask? It's defined as "brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial, gender, sexual orientation and religious slights and insults to the target person or group."

Gone are the days of simple, run-of-the-mill PC. According to UNC, even golf is on par with bigotry! Asking someone to hit the fairway is anything but, officials argue, because it "assumes employees have the financial resources/exposure to a fairly expensive and inaccessible sport." Well, guess what? College is expensive and inaccessible for some too. Should we stop talking about it too? Welcome to the new normal, where even saying "you guys" is discouraged for being "binary" (which must offend... computers?).

Have we really reached this level of lunacy on college campuses? Believe it, say conservative students. This kind of hypersensitivity is overtaking higher education, but rarely in a form as ridiculous as Chapel Hill's. Not only did the taxpayer-funded guide take a swing at the PGA, but there's even a Claus about Santa. As far as the PC police at UNC is concerned, employees should discourage references to Christmas or any holidays that center around the "Christian faith and minimizes non-Christian spiritual rituals and observances." Uttering the words "Christmas vacation" (sorry, Chevy Chase) is incredibly taboo. (I don't know what macroaggression means, but somebody better warn the Easter Bunny.) Telling a female employee "I love your shoes!" is apparently more insulting than calling them ugly. And the list goes on.

"'How did you get here?' constitutes a national origin microaggression because it acknowledges that some 'immigrants get to this country illegally,' while asking 'Where are you from?' implies that 'you are not American and do not belong to this community.'" By all means, never ask someone to "Please stand up and be recognized," since, the school explains, it "assumes that everyone is able in this way and ignores the diversity of ability in the space." Then of course, there are the more routine warnings -- such as avoiding such oppressive gender stereotypes as "husband/wife" "boyfriend/girlfriend." But above all, make sure you have some sexually confused friends, because not knowing people who identify as gay or lesbian is offensive. "I don't know any LGBTQ people," campus officials insist, "means that the person you are talking to must 'openly declare' their gender identity and sexual orientation in order for you to 'care about LGBTQ issues.'"


America's Dangerous Outcome-based Culture Threatens Liberty

A pernicious culture that prioritizes preferred outcomes over the means used to achieve those outcomes has emerged as a dangerous threat to liberty.

Americans are increasingly dismissive of constitutional protections on liberty and limits on federal power that stand in the way of reaching their desired ends.

Whether it's free speech, religious freedom, due process, or checks on executive power, Americans are willing to disregard them if they can get what they want out of government.

This sad reality has played out most recently with the debate over barring individuals on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns. On the surface, it seems like a no-brainer to prevent terrorists from buying weapons. The problem is that being on the no-fly list, which contains 81,000 names, does not necessarily mean somebody is a terrorist. There are no clear standards for placing somebody on the list and no fair way to appeal inclusion on the list.

Throughout the Bush administration, Democrats condemned the erosion of civil liberties in the name of fighting terrorism, including the use of lists.

But because they want to look at any angle possible to restrict gun ownership and are looking to score election-year points, they have thrown such concerns out the window.

Injured bald eagle rebounds to fly again

WASHINGTON — A bald eagle found injured in a backyard in Potomac, Maryland, has beaten the odds and is flying in the skies again over the D.C. area.

It was back in March that the bald eagle named “Trust” was found at a home on River Road. She was named by the two Montgomery County police officers who helped capture the frightened bird that was unable to take flight after it is believed she was hit by a car.

The bird was taken to the Owl Moon Raptor Center in Boyds, Maryland, where it was determined the eagle had a fractured bone in its wing.

“The bone was fairly displaced, so we were worried about the ability for her to fly again,” said Suzanne Shoemaker of Owl Moon Raptor Center.


Trump: ‘Crooked Hillary’ Ordered Bill to Meet with Loretta Lynch

GOP presidential candidate says Bill Clinton boarded plane to broker deal

“Crooked Hillary” Clinton ordered her husband Bill to collude with US Attorney General Loretta Lynch last week during a discreet airplane meeting, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump alleged Sunday.
The likely GOP nominee blasted the notorious Clinton – Lynch tarmac encounter, claiming Bill is “not in trouble” for following Hillary’s orders, except for the fact he was caught.
The inappropriate meeting was made all the worse, Trump said, by the FBI forbidding reporters from documenting the encounter.

Group pushing for citizens on Baltimore officer trial boards

BALTIMORE —One of the issues stalling negotiations over a new Baltimore Police Department union contract is the issue of officer trial boards and whether civilians should have a say in discipline cases.

A citizens group is planning a rally for this week in front of City Hall.

Following Freddie Gray's death and the riots and unrest in Baltimore last year, lawmakers in Annapolis, as part of a package of police reform laws, allowed civilians to be members of trial boards for police officer discipline.

In Baltimore, that can only happen if the police union agrees to reverse a provision in its contract with the city that does not allow citizens to review such cases.

"They've policed themselves and we know they can't police the city well, let alone police themselves, so at this point in time, we are looking for change," activist Kim Trueheart said.


How Rolling Stone's rape story became 'its worst nightmare'

A Rolling Stone article describing the brutal gang-rape of a University of Virginia (UVA) student was dubbed 'our worst nightmare' by staff as they slowly realized it was built on a foundation of lies, newly released documents show.

'We're going to have to run a retraction,' wrote Sabrina Rubin Erdely, author of 'A Rape on Campus,' the now-discredited November 2014 story that ultimately saw the magazine facing multi-million-dollar lawsuits.

The email - titled 'our worst nightmare' - can be found among hundreds of pages of notes, correspondence and other information released Friday that shed light on the piece's construction, reception - and collapse.


Girl Calls 911 When Dad Passes Out In Car; NJ Police Find Vodka

CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. (AP) — Police say a 4-year-old New Jersey girl called 911 to report her father had passed out in their car.

Cliffside Park police say 41-year-old Jamil Graham, of Englewood Cliffs, was charged with child endangerment, being under the influence of alcohol and several motor vehicle offenses. Police say a half-full bottle of vodka was found in the car.

Authorities say the girl called 911 at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Officers tracked the cellphone signal to find Graham’s car.


Was TWA Flight 800’s fiery crash part of a massive cover-up?

On Wednesday, July 17, 1996, at 8:19 p.m., TWA Flight 800 took off from JFK airport and headed out over Long Island toward Paris. It was a perfect summer night, 70 degrees, the sky clear.

Twelve minutes later, TWA 800 exploded mid-air, killing all 230 people on board. The crash was close enough to the coast that plane wreckage washed up on Suffolk County beaches for weeks.

“There was a wall of flame 30 feet high,” Suffolk County police officer Vincent Termine, who witnessed the explosion, told the Independent in 1997. He said it looked like the ocean was on fire.


Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. "Hillary Clinton knowingly broke the law"

Rep. Andy Harris, M.D.
Hillary Clinton knowingly broke the law, yet she was once again given a pass by the Obama Administration. I am disappointed in the FBI’s decision to not recommend prosecution, even though it is clear that Clinton blatantly disregarded the rule of law.

Got 'Er Done

“The tarmac summit sent a signal. It is a signal to all of the hardworking FBI agents who have the goods on Hillary. The attorney general has made it clear what team she is on. The attorney general isn’t on the side of justice. She’s on the Democratic Party team."—J. Christian Adams, former DOJ Voting Rights Section attorney

Hillary Clinton: Too big to jail

FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation Tuesday that Hillary Clinton escape federal prosecution for exposing our national security infrastructure means the Obama administration’s politicization of the entire federal government and the system of justice is complete.

For all of Comey’s scripted thoroughness, the net result of the FBI investigation is that Clinton failed in her most basic responsibility to protect U.S. secrets, but rather than recommend prosecution, Comey chose a cowardly path by giving Attorney General Loretta Lynch the OK not to pursue the case further.

It is inconceivable that General David Petraeus could be prosecuted and convicted for disseminating classified information due to his mishandling of classified information by providing it to his biographer who had clearance to read classified information. Somehow the same FBI and the Obama Justice Department were able to prosecute that case where the information never made it into the public domain, yet cannot find the political will to prosecute Clinton whose recklessness dwarfed Petraeus’ mistake.

The FBI admitted that Hillary Clinton had a minimum of fifty-two classified email chains passing through her unclassified server, a breach of massive proportions due to her negligence. Yet the FBI believes the Hillary is too big to prosecute effectively taking off Lady Justice’s blindfold, leading her to the basement of the J. Edgar Hoover Building and executing her.


America Destroyed

When I was young, America still existed. No more. Not even the blather from the 4th of July can hide the obvious fact.

The young do not know that they have lost their country, because they are born into a time when the country is lost. To them that is normalcy.

Besides, the young are too busy texting and describing themselves, often intimately, on social media to be aware of the fate that awaits them, lost as they are in their insouciance.

When I was young, the police were the public’s friends. We could count on them to help us, not abuse us. False arrest was rare. Abuse of citizens even rarer. Today both are routine.

Over the years I have written about the transformation of the police from protectors of the public into abusers of the public.


Huma Abedin admits that Hillary Clinton BURNED her schedules while she was secretary of state

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's longtime aide, testified last week that her boss burned her schedules while serving as secretary of state.

'If there was a schedule that was created that was her Secretary of State daily schedule, and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that ... that certainly happened on ... on more than one occasion,' Abedin told lawyers representing conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, according to the New York Post.

While Clinton admitted to deleting personal emails from her homebrew server, this is the first time anyone in Clinton's State Department inner circle admitted to destroying public records while on the job.


Newspaper Publisher Thrown in Jail Over Open Records Fight — Read the Indictment

A rural North Georgia journalist was indicted on a felony charge and jailed overnight last week, all for filing an open-records request.

Mark Thomason, publisher of the Fannin Focus, a local paper, and his attorney Russell Stookey were jailed Friday of last week and charged with identity fraud and attempted identity fraud. Additionally, Thomason was accused of lying in his open-records request.

According to the Atlantic-Journal Constitution, Thomason’s pursuit of public records relating to the local Superior Court angered Brenda Weaver, the court’s chief judge who also chairs the state’s Judicial Qualifications Commission. Frustrated by Thomason’s actions, Weaver took the issue to the district attorney, who obtained the indictments.


Analysis: Red States Have Much Cleaner Air Than Blue States

The average red states’ air is 10 percent cleaner than the average blue state, according to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) data analyzed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The EPA data tracks average exposure to small particulates, which kill roughly 5.5 million people globally every year and cause most asthma. Particulate emissions have fallen by 35 percent since the year 2000, mostly in states that voted for Republicans.

The state with the cleanest air in America was Wyoming, which had a population-weighted average exposure to particulates of five. California’s air was the nation’s dirtiest, with an average weighted exposure of 12.5. The average red state had a weighted exposure of 8.31 while the average blue state had an exposure of 9.05. Adjusted for scale, this means that red states have air that is 9.87 percent cleaner than blue states.


Georges Island Maryland (Aerial) - Abandoned

Abandoned fishing community. "Stockton, once known as Sandy Hill, stood out a century ago as a water-oriented town noted for its famous "Chincoteague" oysters. The commercial fishing operations here played a significant role in the prosperity of the area. After the 1933 hurricane, the seafood industry and, in particular, oystering, rapidly declined. Fifteen oyster packing houses were destroyed during the storm and most were never rebuilt. The permanent salt-water influx from the Ocean City inlet has since allowed for oceangoing drills and parasites to decimate the oyster population." Taken with CGO2

Organized Crime

The Clinton Foundation is "organized crime" at its finest. Here is a good, concise summary of how the Clinton Foundation works as a tax free international money laundering scheme. It may eventually prove to be the largest political criminal enterprise in U.S. history. This is a textbook case on how you hide foreign money sent to you and repackage it to be used for your own purposes. All tax free.

Here's how it works:

1. You create a separate foreign "charity." In this case, the Clinton's set it up in Canada.
2. Foreign oligarchs and governments, then donate to this Canadian charity. In this case, over 1,000 did -- contributing mega millions. I'm sure they did this out of the goodness of their hearts, and expected nothing in return. (Imagine Putin's buddies waking up one morning and just deciding to send untold millions to a Canadian
3. The Canadian charity then bundles these separate donations and makes a massive donation to the Clinton Foundation.
4. The Clinton Foundation and the cooperating Canadian charity claim Canadian law prohibits the identification of individual donor’s.
5. The Clinton Foundation then "spends" some of this money for legitimate good works programs. Unfortunately, experts believe this is on the order of 10%. Much of the balance goes to enrich the Clinton's, pay salaries to untold numbers of hangers on, and fund lavish travel, etc. Again, virtually all tax free, which means you and I are subsidizing it.
6. The Clinton Foundation, with access to the world's best accountants, somehow fails to report much of this on their tax filings. They discover these "clerical errors" and begin the process of re-filing 5 years of tax returns.

7. Net result -- foreign money goes into the Clinton's pockets tax free and untraceable back to the original donor. This is the textbook definition of money laundering.
Oh, by the way, the Canadian "charity" includes as a principal one Frank Giustra. Google him. He is the guy who was central to the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired massive U.S. uranium interests and then sold them to an organization controlled by Russia. This transaction required U.S. State Department approval, and guess who was Secretary of State when the approval was granted.
As an aside, imagine how former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell feels. That poor schlep is in jail because he and his wife took $165,000 in gifts and loans for doing minor favors for a guy promoting a vitamin company. Not legal but not exactly putting U.S. security at risk.
Sarcasm aside, if you're still not persuaded this was a cleverly structured way to get unidentified foreign money to the Clinton's, asks yourself this:
Why did these foreign interests funnel money through a Canadian charity? Why not donate directly to the Clinton Foundation? Better yet, why not donate money directly to the people, organizations and countries in need?
This is the essence of money laundering and influence peddling.
Now you know why Hillary's destruction of 30,000 e-mails was a risk she was willing to take.
Bill and Hillary are devious, unprincipled, dishonest and criminal , and they are Slick! Warning: They could be back in the White House in January 2017.

Collingswood, NJ Cops Will No Longer Interrogate Children For Saying 'Brownie'

Yesterday, I told you about the New Jersey elementary school that called the cops on a third-grader for saying the word “brownie”, just because the whole class was eating brownies. Somehow, one of the other students deemed the word “brownie” to be racist hate speech and a matter for the police. And what’s even worse: the cops actually responded.

A lot of other people made note of this story yesterday. It’s amazing how quickly a little national attention can stop child abuse by public officials. Emma Platoff,

A controversial policy that required Collingswood public schools to call police for nearly every incident of student misbehavior has been “reversed,” Mayor James Maley said.

The change comes after parents complained that their children, some as young as 7, were questioned by law enforcement for incidents such as roughhousing on the way to the cafeteria, allegedly making a racist comment at a third-grade class party, and a playground fight between two middle school boys.

JUST IN: Ex-National Guard member charged with plotting to help ISIS

McLEAN, Va. (AP) - A former National Guard soldier has been charged with plotting to help the Islamic State and contemplating a Fort Hood-style attack against the U.S. military.

Twenty-six-year-old Mohamed Jalloh of Sterling, Virginia, is expected to make an initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria.

Court records made public Tuesday indicate Jalloh is a former member of the Army National Guard who says he quit after hearing lectures from radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

President Barack Obama to tell foe-to-friend story at Hillary Clinton event

From bitter rivals to then allies and colleagues, President Obama plans to tell the story of how he eventually warmed up to Clinton – to make the case that the country should too.

Obama and Clinton will appear together for the first time this campaign cycle on Tuesday, where they will show of a new phase of their storied relationship: co-dependents.

Clinton's chances of winning the White House hinge on rallying Obama's coalition to her cause.

Obama's legacy depends on her success.

Eight years after they spent millions tearing each other down in pursuit of the White House, they will now spend countless words and four months selling each other to the public.


Hillary's Closest Aide Admits Clinton 'Illegally' Burned Daily Schedule

Just two weeks after we exposed the fact that Hillary Clinton's official calendar is "missing" a lot of entries, more 'illegal' allegations are being exposed from her reign as Secretary of State.

In a deposition last week, NYPost reports that Hillary Clinton's cloests aide - Huma Abedin - revelaed that her bossdestroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those public records.


Good News For Seafood Lovers As Md. Crab Population Surges

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A new report by the Chesapeake Bay Program brings good news for Maryland crab lovers — the blue crab population is growing at a healthy rate.

A bountiful supply of blue crabs is not always guaranteed. But for waterman Sonny Norris — who owns Norris Seafood Market in Essex — his livelihood depends on it.

“I’ve been doing it all my life, and it’s just up and down. It’s just mother nature,” said Norris.

A recent survey out of the Chesapeake Bay shows a surge in the crab population.

With more than 550 million this year, the new crab survey indicates that Maryland is up from 410 million last year, making it the fourth highest crab population in 20 years.


History repeating? Hillary has knack for eluding jail

Adds credence to Trump's concern 'fix is in' today

The emerging history that Hillary Clinton evaded a planned Justice Department prosecution in the 1990s for her evidently criminal activity in the Whitewater affair has now been fully documented by Washington-based Judicial Watch.

That Hillary escaped jail over Whitewater adds concern that Bill Clinton’s tarmac meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch may have been a resumed effort to the Bill-Hillary crime partnership to keep a planned political indictment from wrecking the political foundation upon which their ill-gotten financial gains continue to depend.

On Saturday, WND reported Donald Trump had tweeted his concern that, according to CNN’s unidentified sources, the expectation is no criminal charges will be brought against Hillary, leading Trump to insist, “Like I said, the system is totally rigged!”

While Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign will never admit federal prosecutors had prepared a written indictment charging her with criminal activity for her involvement in the Whitewater scandal, Judicial Watch has been able to identify the exact location in the National Archives where the Obama administration hides the incriminating documents.

Feds were prepared to indict Hillary over Watergate



According to recent polling, almost six out of ten Americans say visitors and immigrants who support Islamic sharia ideology should be excluded from the country

This poll reveals good news for Donald Trump, who has been pushing a comprehensive reform of border security and strategies which will exclude supporters of Radical Islam from entering the United States.

The poll was conducted by OpinionSavvy on 803 registered voters via telephone, using automated questions, and with a margin of error at 3.5 percent.

The pollsters’ question distinguished between Muslim people and Islamic ideology, by focusing its questions on Americans’ attitudes towards the sharia ideology of Islam.


SPD Press Release 7-5-16 (Shoplifting)

Oil Rally Threatened as Gasoline Supply Surge Swamps U.S. Demand

American drivers’ seemingly insatiable thirst for gasoline is running into a flood of supply.

Refineries across the nation are operating full-out and imports are pouring into the East Coast, boosting gasoline supplies to a record. At the same time, consumption has turned out to be less robust than thought. That’s weighed on prices, threatening to stem oil’s rebound from a 12-year low.

"Earlier this year there was a lot of hope that gasoline would lead crude higher," said John Kilduff, partner at Again Capital LLC, a New York hedge fund focused on energy. "That’s not turned out to be the case and gasoline will soon be a weight on the market."


The Internet Is Furious Over What James Comey Said About Hillary Clinton’s Emails

The Internet was furious after the director of the FBI recommended no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton after she used a private server to communicate about classified information.

“Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” James Comey said during a press conference Tuesday.

“To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.”

People were quick to express their frustration on Twitter.


Mark "Oz" Geist: Stop Clinton, Vote Trump

Exclusive: Bill Clinton and the Selling of US Security

For the Clinton crime family, selling out US national security is a family business

This may be the greatest scandal in 50 years of American history.

It makes Watergate look like a jay walking charge. It makes the Iran Contra affair look like a small time operation. This is what House Republicans should have Impeached Bill Clinton for instead of lying about a White House Intern giving him head in the Oval Office. It’s called treason.


Bill Clinton is at the center of the greatest foreign policy deceit ever perpetrated on the American people. He used the power of his office to allow the selling and delivery of high tech missile defense components to governments of countries that are listed as threats to this country and the stability of the world. Russia was one of the benefactors of deals Clinton made without proper authorization from Congress. Ignoring CIA and Pentagon reports that showed how Russia was continuing a major and secretive modernization program for its strategic nuclear missile systems, Clinton allocated over $1 billion to “help” the Soviets “dismantle” their nuclear weapons. In 1995 the General Accounting Office (GAO) wrote that Moscow refuses to permit American audits of the $1.25 billion disarmament aid. This is an important issue because it allowed the Russians to use American taxpayer’s money to build new offensive nuclear weapons that directly threaten the United States.


Armed Grandma: ‘I Decided That It’s Either Them or Me’

An armed grandma who confronted three suspects in her home said, “I decided that it’s either them or me.”

The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon in Boynton Beach, Florida.

According to CBS 12, a suspect began “banging” on the grandma’s door and ringing her doorbell around 12:45 pm. Through the peephole she saw the suspect leave and return with “a T-shirt over his head” and she noticed he was “putting on gloves.”

The grandma immediately moved toward her bedroom to retrieve her handgun and, as she did, the sound of breaking glass filled the house. She said, “It was really scary,” and added, “I decided that it’s either them or me, you know. I had to save my life.”

The grandma stood inside her bedroom with the gun raised and trained on the doorway...

FBI recommends no charges for Clinton over email system at State Department

WASHINGTON — The FBI recommended Tuesday that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges over her use of a private email server as secretary of State, even though she and aides were "extremely careless" in handling classified information.

While FBI Director James Comey criticized Clinton and her aides for carelessly handling classified, top-secret information, he said there is no evidence she intended to do so, the basis for criminal charges.

"Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information," Comey said in a 15-minute statement explaining the investigation, "our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."

Comey said his agency acted apolitically, and went where the facts took them. While, technically, the FBI makes recommendations to Justice Department prosecutors over potential charges, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has said she would accept the bureau's views in this case.

"In looking back at our investigations into mishandling of removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts," Comey said.


FBI director doesn't recommend charges against Hillary Clinton

(CNN) FBI Director James Comey said Tuesday that he would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state but that Clinton and her aides were "extremely careless" handling classified information.
"Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," Comey said.

"Although we did not find clear evidence" of intentional misconduct, he added, "There is evidence that they were extremely careless of very sensitive, highly classified information."

Comey said neither the Department of Justice nor the White House knew what he was going to announce Tuesday, and said the FBI investigation it was nearing its end.

Democratic Sen. Calls For Ammunition Control

Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, who is on the shortlist to be Hillary Clinton’s vice president, called for limiting the size of magazines on semi-automatic rifles.

In an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator Chuck Todd asked, “Are you in favor of an assault-weapons ban?”

“I have voted for it,” Kaine said. “But I think there’s a better way to go at the problem and that is limitations on the size of magazines and ammunition clips.”

“So you think an AR-15 should be sold,” Todd asked.”You don’t think there should be any limitations?”

FBI won't recommend charges for Clinton despite 'extremely careless' handling of sensitive emails

FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday he will not recommend the Department of Justice seek criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her personal email use while secretary of state.

The decision helps remove what was arguably the biggest threat to her presidential campaign going forward – a criminal referral that could have led to an indictment – just weeks before her party’s national convention in Philadelphia where she is set to seal her nomination as the Democrat standard bearer.

Clinton consistently had downplayed the FBI investigation, even calling it a “security review,” and as recently as June 3 said there was “absolutely no possibility” she’d be indicted. Weeks ago, a scathing State Department inspector general report directly countered her long-running claim that her personal email use was allowed, though her campaign continued to defend the candidate’s actions.

In the wake of that report, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump stepped up his criticism of her email actions and said she belongs in “jail.”


Army veteran saves bald eagle by shooting it out of a tree

An Army veteran is being credited with saving a bald eagle by shooting it out of a tree.

Jason Galvin was driving near his home in Minnesota when he saw the bird hanging upside down by a rope about 75 feet up.

After telling his wife Jackie, the couple decided something needed to be done so they started calling local officials.

According to Jackie, all of them gave the same answer, the bird had been stuck there for 2 and a half days and it was dead.

The Galvins believed the eagle was alive so Jackie encouraged her husband to shoot the rope the bird was tangled in.


Seven Refugees With Active TB Sent to Idaho

Seven refugees with active tuberculosis (TB) were diagnosed shortly after their resettlement in Idaho between 2011 and 2015, according to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

This makes Idaho the seventh state to confirm to Breitbart News that recently arrived refugees have been diagnosed with active TB.

The other states in which recently arrived refugees have been diagnosed with active TB include: Louisiana (twenty-one), Florida (eleven), Colorado, (ten), Indiana (four), Kentucky (where nine were diagnosed in one county), and North Dakota (where four refugees who resided in the United States for less than five years were diagnosed in one county).


WikiLeaks Releases Over 1,000 Clinton Iraq War Emails

WikiLeaks has released 1,258 of Hillary Clinton’s emails in relation to the Iraq war, preceding the British Chilcot report on the conflict set to be released later this week.

WikiLeaks tweeted a link to their email archive from their official Twitter page today. Wikileaks appears to have a substantial amount of information on Clinton, having already released a large archive of Clinton’s emails earlier in the year. Breitbart has previously reported on Julian Assange’s claims that Google is complicit in the managing of Clintons online media campaign.

Former Navy SEAL Tej Gill: 'Hillary Clinton Killed My Friends'

Former Navy SEAL Tej Gill joined Breitbart News DailySiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon Tuesday to discuss the T-shirts his organization, Project War Path, has created, which read “Hillary Clinton Killed My Friends.”

Originating with a bumper sticker, “they’ve gone viral in the SEAL community,” said Gill. “So we started making T-shirts, and we want to get the word out there what Hillary Clinton did.”

Asked if the charge was too harsh, Gill did not back down:

She literally killed my friends, Ty Woods and Glenn Doherty. I’ve known Ty since 1997 and Glen since 2003. They were both good friends. Her actions led to their deaths. By denying multiple requests for the upgraded security at the outpost, it was attacked. Terrorists just literally pushed the gate open. They flooded that compound in ten seconds, took it over, and then they got killed because of her. If that consulate would have been hardened like it should have been, none of that would’ve happened.

Gill also does not think much of the Benghazi committee, which released its report Tuesday. “No, not satisfied,” Gill replied when asked. “They talked it up like they were going to ask her some real questions, and it seemed like they basically let her off the hook.”


Clinton To Ride on Air Force One — Trump Wants to Know Who’s Footing the Bill

President Barack Obama, who will hit the campaign trail with Hillary Clinton for the first time this week, will give the presumptive Democratic nominee a lift on Air Force One Tuesday when they fly to North Carolina for a joint campaign appearance.

The flight, a powerful representation of the presidency, appears to be a gift Obama is more than happy to offer to his preferred candidate for the White House. But Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, isn’t nearly as happy with the president’s offering.

“Why is President Obama allowed to use Air Force One on the campaign trail with Crooked Hillary?” Trump posted to Twitter Monday evening. “She is flying with him tomorrow. Who pays?”


Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign will be hurt no matter what the FBI decides to do in email case

WASHINGTON - No matter how the FBI investigation into the handling of sensitive information on Hillary Clinton’s personal computer server ends, it likely will hurt her presidential bid.

If she is indicted, she will face further questions about her honesty and perhaps even calls for her to step aside. If she isn’t indicted, as many legal experts predict, critics will accuse the Obama administration of letting her escape charges merely because they want her to win the White House.

Clinton was interviewed by the FBI Saturday for three-and-half hours at its headquarters in Washington, according to her campaign, suggesting the inquiry is nearing its end.

“Secretary Clinton gave a voluntary interview this morning about her email arrangements while she was secretary,” Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. “She is pleased to have had the opportunity to assist the Department of Justice in bringing this review to a conclusion.”

BREAKING: FBI Director James Comey to Give Press Conference This Morning

Could this be the press conference where we learn of Hillary Clinton‘s fate?

Just three days after completing a highly-publicized 3.5 hour interview with the former Secretary of State, the FBI is prepared to give a press conference this morning. FBI Director James Comey is scheduled to give the remarks at 11 a.m., which are on an unspecific topic.

Last week, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced that she was prepared to receive the recommendation from the FBI about the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server and the handling of classified information.

Political Twitter immediately wagered their best bets about the press conference and what we might expect to hear when Comey takes to the microphone. Many are pointing to the fact that Clinton is scheduled to make her first campaign stop later today alongside President Barack Obama as a likely indicator about how Comey’s remarks may be colored:


EDITORIAL: One law for us, another for you

California’s legislative hypocrisy a failure of democracy

This is just one of many bills Golden State politicians used this legislative session to set themselves apart from the little people, the ones who pay their inflated salaries. Annual compensation for legislators averages about $140,000, not counting luxurious perks such as taxpayer-funded cars and free gasoline. By comparison, the average Californian earns $50,000 a year, and the unemployment rate is 11.9 percent - far above the national average. Exact salaries for state assemblymen and senators are obscured by the use of a “per diem” payment scheme that shelters a significant chunk of income from taxation.

Attempts by a handful of reformers to require politicians to provide a full annual disclosure of the benefits received from the public treasury have been rebuffed. Currently, government officials must file a statement of economic interests revealing income from any source other than a local, state or federal government agency. Gifts worth more than $50 also must be disclosed, but lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes.

Bills of this nature never meet an honest fate in which roll-call votes put members on the record as favoring or opposing each idea. Instead, reform measures are held in committee to die quietly as legislative deadlines pass. As of last week, it’s effectively impossible for a bill to become law if it hasn’t already passed in at least one of the chambers.


NYT: Hillary Clinton 'May Decide' to Keep Loretta Lynch as Attorney General

Patrick Healy of the NYT pens an 1,800-word slobber job on Hillary Clinton: in her first 100 days, she’ll appoint a historically diverse Cabinet, work with Republicans on “broadly popular issues,” and — psst! — probably decline to replace Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who just happened to speak privately with her husband Bill last week.
Far-left Salon alumnus David Sirota puts this development in context:

Sen. Ben Cardin joins local Muslims 'United Against Hate'

ROSEDALE, Md. —Muslims in the Baltimore region are encouraging open and honest conversation amid all the violence.

U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin attended a Baltimore mosque Sunday night and said it's fitting that the United Against Hate event happened the day before Independence Day.

Mosque leaders said outreach events are working in the battle against Islamaphobia, but admit there's a long way to go.

Cardin said Americans need to build more bridges to overcome hate.

"Demolition is very easy rather than construction. You can demolish a building in three seconds. It will take three years to build it. We understand that and we're in it for the long game," said Raheem Younus, president, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Baltimore Chapter.
