The Staggering Cost of Immigration

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine released a report laying out its findings from a study on immigration’s impact on government expenditure. The findings of the study, which calculated the cost burden of both legal and illegal immigration, run counter to the oft repeated claims by Barack Obama and Democrats that the economic benefits of immigration far outweigh any negative cost.

The study used eight different scenarios and found that the immigration burden experienced by federal, state and local governments costs anywhere from $43 billion to $296 billion per year.

The report noted that in some of the scenarios the federal government’s revenue in taxes did outweigh spending for benefit programs, but those same scenarios also witnessed state and local losses surpassing the total amount of federal government revenue. In other words, an overall loss. The report stated, “Fiscal impacts vary strongly by level of government. States and localities bear the burden of funding educational benefits enjoyed by immigrant and native children.

Voter Fraud Far From ‘Myth,’ Panel Asserts

The Obama administration opposes states verifying citizenship status of registered voters. Inquiries into voter fraud are typically met with derision from both government and the media—and in at least one instance with prosecution. Prosecutors don’t prioritize voter fraud, while convictions only garner light sentences.

These are among the voter fraud problems facing the United States, experts noted this week, even as prominent voices on the left say such fraud is a myth.

The left’s opposition to voter integrity laws or even inquiry can be simply explained, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.

“Why on earth would you not want to make sure that only citizens are registered and voting?” Fitton, author of “Clean House: Exposing Our Government’s Secrets and Lies,” said at a forum at The Heritage Foundation Tuesday. “That to me shows that the Obama administration and the left generally, which is behind this, wants to be able to steal elections if necessary. To me, that’s a crisis.”

“The percentages of non-citizens in the United States are approaching nearly 15 percent now,” said Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “So it’s a numbers game. A certain number of those citizens — a certain number of those residents, both legally were present and illegally present, are going to register to vote.”

A 2014 study by Old Dominion University found that 6.4 percent of all noncitizens voted in the 2008 election and 2.2 percent voted in the 2010 midterm elections. The study concludes this likely put Minnesota Sen. Al Franken, a Democrat, over the top in the race in his 312-vote statewide victory over Republican Norm Coleman in 2008.

Media Try to Make Charlotte Shooting Fit National Narrative

Violence again erupted overnight in Charlotte, North Carolina, following a police shooting that left an armed black man dead.

But the national media is largely ignoring – or burying – a key fact about the case in order to fit Charlotte into a larger “trend” of racially charged cop shootings nationwide: the police officer involved in the Charlotte shooting was black.

The New York Times, for example, devotes hundreds of words to Keith L. Scott’s death, describing, in great detail, Scott’s encounter with police, the demeanor of strangers at his memorial, a Charlotte crime scene from Wednesday night’s riots, and what the Times luridly calls “a grim snapshot of America’s continuing crisis in black and blue” before mentioning briefly that the Charlotte police officer who killed Scott was also black.

And even that is a recent addition – late Wednesday night, the lengthy New York Times story made no mention of the officer’s race.

In the Washington Post, the revelation doesn’t come until almost the tenth paragraph, in a throwaway comment that also mentions that the cop, Brentley Vinson, is on administrative leave. Before then, the Post waxes poetic about North Carolina’s (alleged) history of racism, its voter identification laws, and even its recent “bathroom law” — which has nothing to do with cops or race.

The Associated Press account leaves a bare mention of the “black officer” until almost the very end, quoting the Charlotte police chief at a press conference. CBS News also quoted the press conference, but left out the detail about Vinson’s raceuntil after the news outlet accused Charlotte of staging the Q&A in a desperate attempt to “change the narrative” surrounding the shooting.


Walmart Workers Refuse to Make Cop’s Retirement Cake.

Three Walmart workers in McDonough, Georgia refused to decorate a “thin blue line” cake for a police officer’s retirement party because they said it was racist.

A number of my Georgia readers alerted me to the story and on Saturday night I spoke directly with the police officer’s daughter. She asked that I not divulge her name and I’ve agreed to honor her request.

“The baker told me the blue line cake was racist”


“I was so shocked,” she told me. “I didn’t know what to do or say or anything. I was trying not to lose my temper or make a scene.” 

Ignore the Flu Vaccine Propaganda

Last year the flu season was predicted to peak in February. However, this year the news media, on cue from the Centers for Disease Control, is starting their vaccination campaign early by planting the idea of vaccination in the minds of senior Americans who are most at risk for the flu and suggesting in doubletalk that seniors wait and get their vaccine later rather than sooner (??).

US News & World Report continues with the annual drivel that 36,000 people in the US die from the flu annually. [US News Sept 21, 2016] The Centers for Disease Control states: “Hundreds of thousands are hospitalized and thousands or tens of thousands of people die from the flu every year.” [ Aug 3, 2016]

The Global Vaccine Institute sets the record straight. For reference, in the era prior to flu data manipulation, there were only 257 deaths attributed to influenza in 2001. []


National ICE Council Anounces First-Ever Presidential Endorsement In Its History

Early Monday morning, the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council made a huge announcement that rocked the political world.

“We hereby endorse Donald J. Trump, and urge all Americans, especially the millions of lawful immigrants living within our country, to support Donald J. Trump, and to protect American jobs, wages and lives,” the organization’s president, Chris Crane, wrote in a statement published at

What made the endorsement so stunning was that the National ICE Council had never before in its history made an endorsement for a candidate running for an elected office.


Wire: Little Public Support for Hillary Clinton — in Liberal Brooklyn Neighborhood

(REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it.

Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous.

The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication of the Democratic nominee’s struggle to generate enthusiasm among left-leaning voters, a challenge that’s borne out in polling data, and could potentially haunt her if voters fail to turn out on election day.

Clinton leads Republican challenger Donald Trump by four percentage points among likely voters, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Friday.

But Americans of all political stripes have been more critical of Clinton than they were of Obama when he was running for his second term four years ago, according to the daily tracking poll.

Baltimore Police: 3 Gunmen Shoot, Wound 8 In Attack

Three gunmen shot and wounded eight people including a 3-year-old girl on an east Baltimore street Saturday night, police said, adding the suspects fled and the victims were all expected to survive.

The shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the three armed men converged on the group from different points, Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at a news conference

Davis, who went to the scene, said the shooting was a premeditated act of retaliatory violence in response to a Labor Day weekend shooting in which a man was fatally shot and two women were wounded, one of them pregnant. He did not immediately explain how investigators believed the shootings were linked.

Davis said the victims could have recognized the gunmen but authorities haven't immediately been able to identify the suspects and were still searching for them hours afterward.

According to the commissioner, one of the armed men emerged from an alley and two others ran down the street, stopping just short of the victims before they opened fire. He added that the 3-year-old girl and her father were standing a slight distance away from the others and that the child was not an intended target.


The Biggest Economy Bubble Will Burst In 2017

Gas Prices Spike Following Pipeline Repairs

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Local motorists are still seeing a spike at the pump, following a ruptured gasoline pipeline in Alabama. The leak was repaired last week, but officials say prices are still high.

Typically in the winter, the demand for gas goes down, making it cheaper, but because of this issue, Maryland drivers are now paying more than the national average. A leak in the Colonial Pipeline was first reported in early September, disrupting the supply of gasoline up and down the east coast.

“That has eliminated one point three million barrels of gasoline a day for distribution so you can imagine all the drivers impacted,” said AAA spokeswoman Christine Delise.

Gas prices typically trend down in colder months, but this leak is forcing prices to go up.


Clinton Campaign Manager Unable to Answer Questions on 'Hillary Coverup Operation'

CNN anchor Jake Tapperconfronted Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook Sunday over an IT worker handling her private email server joking in a 2014 email about a “Hillary coverup operation,” with Mook dodging the question and blaming Republicans for “selectively leaking documents.”

TAPPER: There was a document dump on Friday, that we learned from the FBI that an IT contractor managing Hillary Clinton’s private email server made reference to the “Hillary coverup operation” in a work ticket. He used those words after a senior Clinton aide asked him to automatically delete emails after 60 days. This IT worker certainly sounded like he was covering something up, no?

MOOK: Look, Jake, I’m — first of all I’m glad you asked that question. A lot of this stuff is swirling around in the ether. It’s important to pull back and look at the facts here. The FBI did a comprehensive and deep investigation into this. And at the conclusion of that, FBI Director Comey came out and said to the world that there was no case here, that they have no evidence of wrongdoing on Hillary’s part.

TAPPER: So what’s the “Hillary coverup operation” that the IT worker was referring to?

MOOK: Well, well, but this is — but this is — this is the perfect example of what’s going on here. Republicans on the House side are selectively leaking documents for the purpose of making Hillary look bad. We’ve asked the FBI to release all information that they’ve shared with Republicans so they can get the full picture. But again, I would trust the career professionals at the FBI and the Justice Department who looked into this matter, concluded that was no case, than I would Republicans who are selectively leaking information.


SPD Press Release - (Bank Robbery-First Shore Federal) 9-26-16

A riot that dares not speak its name

Charlotte is the conversation we’re getting about race in America, with rioting, death and looting, encouraged by the noise of the mob, the purple rhetoric of certain newspapers, bloody mayhem on the television screen, and encouragement, no doubt unintended, by the president of the United States. It’s a carnival out there, but not much conversation.

The city buttoned down for a third night of violence Thursday, with National Guardsmen joining the thinning blue ranks to impose restraint if not order. The lot of a policeman, nor of anyone else in Charlotte, is not a happy one.

President Obama finally spoke up Thursday. Not the president himself, but his earnest spokesman, Josh Earnest. “The president hopes that the rights of peaceful protesters will be protected,” he said, and added, as if afterthought: “But he also believes that it should be made clear that the protests must remain peaceful, and they should not be used as an excuse to engage in vandalism or violence.”

After Getting Hate for Pro-Cop Comments, Charles Barkley Hits Back With a Million-Dollar Question

Former NBA star Charles Barkley has never been shy about either his political beliefs or his thoughts about what the 'black community' should do in the wake of riots and protests over police shootings.

Barkley waded into the issue of Black Lives Matter activism a couple weeks ago, when he told ESPN’s “The Dan Le Batard Show”:

“The cops have made some mistakes; black people have made some mistakes.

We have to sit back and be honest with each other. The cops have made some mistakes, that don’t give us the right to riot and shoot cops.”
Barkley got plenty of hateful responses on his remarks, but he shrugged it off during a follow up interview on Sirius Radio's The Bleacher Report:
 "Black people only like you when you say what they want you to say. I'm a big boy. I can handle the heat."
Talk about heat. Barkley waded straight into the fire:

Boy Walks Into NC Police Station, Shocks Cops With What’s Around His Neck

A little black boy stumbled off of the street and into the Charlotte, North Carolina police station, shocking cops on office duty with what was around his neck. Before the boy could even say a word, one officer called for other cops to come out when she realized what else the child had in tow.

The nightmare for the boy began on Tuesday when he awoke to helicopters and sirens right outside his house when riots broke out in his neighborhood but had no way of understanding what was happening. The following morning, his mom, Deanna Hooker, was driving him to school when a breaking news report came on the radio that several police officers had been injured during the violent protests that woke her son the night before.

Deanna didn’t know that this news and unrest surrounding him had affected her son as much as it did. After becoming saddened that other people’s decisions were stealing the innocence her son, who had to see it and try to make sense of it, she was surprised when he approached her with what he wanted to do.

The boy had spent most of Wednesday thinking about the riots that have still not ceased, but that didn’t stop him from wanting to make a difference for those who risk their lives to ensure his safety. “He asked me if he could bring the police donuts and give them hugs for all they do,” Deanna wrote in a post shared by Love What Matters. He put his idea into action on his own with a little assistance from his mother who was so proud of her son when she saw the cops’ faces when the boy walked into the station.

Kerry: We must 'act or shut up' on two-state solution

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly blasted Israel at a private meeting in New York last Monday over its policy in Judea and Samaria, Haaretz reported Sunday.

According to the newspaper, Kerry’s comments came at a closed meeting of ministers representing the countries providing financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

The Secretary of State repeatedly raised his voice, emphasizing that Israel and the PA are moving in the direction of a bi-national state rather than a Palestinian state alongside Israel and are also headed toward war.

Kerry reportedly added that if the international community is interested in putting a halt to these developments, “Either we mean it and we act on it, or we should shut up.”

Western diplomats who were present at the meeting, but who asked not to be identified because the meeting was not public, noted that Kerry was extremely agitated.

While he blasted Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, the U.S. Secretary of State also expressed criticism of the PA, the sources said, citing the increased number of terror attacks and the incitement against Israel.

However, the thrust of his remarks constituted criticism of what was described as “the unprecedented rate” of construction in Judea and Samaria particular, and Israel’s policies in the region in general, according to Haaretz.


EXCLUSIVE - Kathleen Willey: Bill Clinton Alleged Sex Victims ‘Could Fill The Entire Audience’ At Presidential Debate

NEW YORK – Bill Clinton’s alleged sex assault victims are likely so numerous that “we could fill the entire audience,” stated Kathleen Willey when asked by this reporter if she would hypothetically be willing to attend tomorrow’s presidential debate.

Willey, a White House aide during the Clinton administration who famously accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, joins accusers Juanita Broaddrick and Paula Jones in commenting on the audience of tomorrow’s debate.

Stated Willey:

Most of us are well known and our stories have been repeated several times over the years, but what concerns me the most are the voices of my sisters who are still afraid to come out of the darkness. I have communicated with a number of them and they are still terrified of publicly sharing their experiences with the Clintons.

The real story here is not one of our presence in the front row at any of these debates, but the unhindered lust for power that the Clintons have displayed for decades. Hillary Clinton has lied, cheated and stolen our lives from us. People have died in her wake of deceit.


Hillary Says "No Need" For Brain Test After 'Cock-Eyed' Dementia Concerns

Responding to concerns of dementia symptoms - following her 'cock-eyed' appearance earlier in the week - Hillary Clinton has told a local reporter that "there's no need" for a brain scan claiming that she has met "the standards that every other person running for president has ever had to meet."

Hillary Clinton exhibited abnormal eye movements during her recent speech in Philadelphia and they were not photoshopped.

And while doctors were concerned, she is not. As The Sun reports, Hillary Clinton has ruled out taking a brain test during a TV interview about the elevated risk of dementia among older people. The under-fire Democrat said ‘there’s no need for that’ when she was being grilled about having a check by ABC anchor Sarina Fazan during an interview in Orlando. (starts at 3:30)


Three-year-old girl among 8 injured in Baltimore shooting

BALTIMORE – Three gunmen shot and wounded eight people including a 3-year-old girl on an east Baltimore street Saturday night, the city's police commissioner said, adding the suspects fled and that the victims were expected to survive.

The shooting erupted outside some rowhouses about 8:30 p.m. after the armed men converged on the group from different points, Davis told The Associated Press at the scene.

Davis said it was a premeditated act of retaliatory violence in response to a Labor Day weekend shooting in which a person was fatally shot and two others were wounded, including a pregnant woman. He did not immediately explain how investigators believed the shooting was linked to the earlier shooting.

Davis said the victims could have recognized the gunmen but authorities haven't immediately been able to identify the suspects and were still searching for them hours afterward.


"Home Prices Are Out Of Hand Again"

U.S. home prices appear to be getting out of hand again as the gap between home price growth and household real income growth is close to where it was just before the housing collapse.

It’s also notable, and worrying, that the housing market is back in a “flipping frenzy” with non-bank actors climbing aboard to fund the speculation.

Since 1999 year-end through 2015 home prices have risen 76% while household mean real income has grown less than 2%; the millennium-to-date gap between the two growth rates peaked at 84% during 2005-2006 and has risen back to 74% as of 2015 year-end. Gap at year-end 2007 was 75%.

This millennium through 2015 has seen average new and existing home sale prices rise 84% and 55%, respectively, despite the lack of income growth.

Existing and new home sales average prices peaked at $280.2k in June 2015 and $384k in Oct. 2014, respectively; both peaks exceeded levels seen during housing boom.

Over the same period outstanding home mortgage debt has risen 14%, though it’s notable that with the end of easy mortgage credit it has fallen 11% from its June 2008 peak.

Concurrent with this 11% fall, the homeownership rate (63.8% at 2015 year-end) has slid back to levels last seen in the mid-1960s.

The friendship of George W. Bush and Michelle Obama

(CNN)Saturday's dedication of the National Museum of African-American History and Culture brought together the president who signed into law the funding for the museum and the president who was in office during its completion.

But the gathering of the 43rd and 44th first couples also saw the reuniting of two unlikely friends.

Over the past eight years, former President George W. Bush and First Lady Michelle Obama have been seen becoming increasingly chummy. At public events, the two can often be found sitting next to each other, sharing a laugh or lending a hand to hold.

Saturday's ceremony was no exception. During the event, Obama reached over and grabbed Bush into a hug as their spouses clapped and looked on.

Trump Vows to Drive Down College Costs: 'Education Is the Bedrock of Our Society'

Donald J. Trump, the GOP nominee for president, rallied with supporters in Chester Township, Pennsylvania with his call for a law and order program that protects all citizens and a new plan to drive down the cost of public college tuition.

“The rioting in our streets is a threat to all peaceful citizens. It must be ended,” said Trump, who did not directly name the mayhem and violence that dominated Charlotte Tuesday and Wednesday–but, it was clearly understood by everyone in the audience at the Sun Center Studios.

“The main victims of these violent demonstrations are law-abiding African-Americans who live in these communities and only want to raise their children in peace,” he said. “Who is looking out for them?”

Doctor: Hillary Clinton’s ‘Abnormal Eye Movements’ Serious

A general surgeon from Texas, John R. Coppedge, MD, FACS, writes in The Hill that Hillary Clinton’s “abnormal eye movements” during her speech in Philadelphia on Monday are likely symptomatic of serious health issues.

From The Hill:

Her eyes did not always move in the same direction at the same time. It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve. That nerve serves only one function and that is to make the lateral rectus muscle contract. That muscle turns the eye in the direction away from the midline.

It comes out of the base of the brain and runs along the floor of the skull, immediately beneath the brain before coursing upward to the eye. Dysfunction of that muscle causes the striking picture of the eyes not aiming in the same direction and causes the patient to suffer double vision..

New doctor: Hillary has epilepsy

Debate, specialist says, could trigger seizure

A new doctor specializing in internal medicine is convinced Hillary Clinton is suffering from epilepsy and that a brain seizure could well be triggered in Monday night’s debate.

Amid the mounting evidence Hillary Clinton is suffering from a serious neurological disease, a physician in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has presented WND with her expert analysis of recent videos of Clinton, concluding she has recently exhibited strong symptoms of both Petit mall and Grand mal brain seizures.

“I specialize in internal medicine and can assure you that Hillary is having Petit mall seizures and you can see it clearly on the video of Hillary freezing during her Las Vegas speech in August, if you know what you are looking for,” Paulette Metoyer, MD, explained to WND in an email and a subsequent telephone interview. “I’m concerned Clinton could easily experience another seizure during Monday’s presidential debate with Donald Trump.”


Poll: Hogan Approval Rating At 70-Percent

A new poll indicates Governor Larry Hogan's approval rating is still high.

The Goucher College poll of 668 Maryland residents finds that 70% either strongly approve, or approve of the job Governor Hogan is doing.

The poll found that 12% either disapprove, or strongly disapprove of Hogan.

A Goucher Poll in February found Hogan with a 63% approval rating.

Earlier this month, an OpinionWorks poll gave Hogan a 71% approval rating.

Goucher Poll Director Mileah Kromer told WBAL NewsRadio 1090 that Hogan remains popular among Democrats, whose voters outnumber Republicans by a 2-to-1 margin.

"Larry Hogan remains really popular in the state. He’s at 70%. It makes him one of the most popular governors in the country."

The poll finds Hogan's approval rating among Democrats at 69%, and among Republicans at 85%.

Kromer said that Hogan’s continued high approval ratings will make it tough for any potential Democratic challenger in the 2018 election.


Burlington Shooter ID'ed as Arcan Cetin, Immigrant from Turkey

Police have identified thealleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

Cetin allegedly killed four women and one man at the Cascade Mall on Friday evening. Local NBC News affiliate KING-5 reports that he used three guns in the attack, all of which had been legally purchased by Cetin’s father, and which he stole.


"The Hillary Coverup Operation" - How PRN Described Clinton's 60-Day "Email Retention Policy"

Just a few weeks after getting lambasted by just about everyone outside of the Clinton campaign for dumping investigation notes on the media the Friday before Labor Day weekend, in an obvious attempt to "bury the story", last night the Federal Bureau of Immunity did it again dropping nearly 200 pages of new, redacted interview notes.

Perhaps one of the most interesting discoveries in the new notes comes from yet another "Undisclosed PRN Staff Member." Apparently, after receiving a request from Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson (both of whom we no know were granted immunity deals by the DOJ) back in December 2014 to change Hillary's email retention policy to 60 days, this "Undisclosed PRN Staff Member" wrote a work ticket that referred to the request as "the Hillary coverup operation." Per the FBI notes:
Hillary Coverup Operation
But don't worry folks, according to the FBI's notes on the interview conducted on February 18, 2016, this "Undisclosed PRN Staff Member" assured the FBI that the comment was just "a joke." Apparently that explanation was good enough for the FBI so we should probably just take it at face value as well.

Though the Trump campaign doesn't seem to be buying the "it was just a joke" defense as Senior Communications Advisor, Jason Miller, released the following statement last night on the situation:


Congressman: Charlotte Rioters 'Hate White People'

Republican North Carolina Rep. Robert Pittenger said during a Thursday BBC interview that the reason why demonstrators have rioted this week in Charlotte is because “they hate white people.”

The answer came in response to a question from a BBC anchor asking the congressman what “grievance” does he see motivating the violent protests.

“The grievance in their minds – the animus, the anger – they hate white people because white people are successful and they’re not,” Pittenger replied.


What Others Are Saying … Anti-Drilling Campaign Merits Recognition

Working in the environmental field, it’s not every day that we have something to celebrate, but this past March gave us something to truly take the time to appreciate.

When the Obama Administration unveiled plans in early 2015 that would have allowed offshore drilling off our coast, Assateague Coastal Trust knew we had to do everything in our power to stop these plans from moving forward. We worked closely with citizens, civic groups, national leaders, and numerous municipalities in the Delmarva Region to ensure our voice was heard in Washington.

Our coalition came together to pass 11 resolutions opposing offshore drilling in towns stretching from Lewes, Del. to Northampton County, Va. Letters expressing opposition to the plan were also submitted by the Ocean City Chamber of Commerce, the Rehoboth Beach Homeowners Association, the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association, the founder of the White Marlin Open and numerous local citizens. In fact, Assateague Coastal Trust’s website generated the 12th most referrals to the online federal public comment page of any other website in the world.

Delmarva made sure that its voice was heard in DC and recognition of that effort was delivered in March of this year when the Obama administration decided to rescind its plans for offshore drilling in the Atlantic, at least for the next five years, citing overwhelming grassroots opposition as one of its deciding factors. As is the case with most environmental victories though, we must not let our guard down and work still remains to be done to ensure the protection of our coast.

Flynn: Hillary Clinton Should Not Be Too Big To Jail

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former Defense Intelligence Agency Director and current adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn, said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should not be too big to jail.

Flynn said, “So a couple things. The very last thing that John Podesta just said is no individual too big to jail. That should include people like Hillary Clinton. Five people around her have had — have been given immunity to include her former chief of staff. When you are given immunity, that means you have probably committed a crime. I don’t know how he can sit there and say something like that with all the things that have been going around — just swirling around Hillary Clinton with her e-mails.”


Obama Legacy Marred By Growing Number Of Race Riots

The violent riots that broke out in Charlotte after a black police officer shot and killed a black man fall into a line of similar race-related riots that mark President Barack Obama’s legacy.

Under Obama, the number of both white and black Americans who believe race relations are good has declined, and a July Rasmussen poll found 60 percent of Americans think race relations are worse; a growing number of violent riots across the country seem to back up that sentiment.

Here are more than 10 riots that have occurred since Obama took office in 2008.


FBI Dump Reveals Obama's Pseudonym Use, Private Email Traffic with Hillary's Private Email

The Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed Friday that President Barack Obama used a private email address and pseudonym to communicate with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary R. Clinton and her own private email account as early as June 2012.

Posted at the FBI’s Vault site, the revelation was part of a 189-page document dump of interview notes from conversations its agents conducted about how Clinton handled classified electronic correspondence, other documents, and her private email scheme during her tenure as secretary of State.


Homeland Security Chair: ‘Good Chance’ Mall Shooting is Islamic Terror


We learned earlier today that the Cascade mall shooting in Burlington, Washington was not carried out by a “Hispanic male.”

Arcan Cetin is an immigrant from Turkey who supports Hillary Clinton.

In case you weren’t sure, Islam is king in Turkey (but I’m not sure how many Hispanics live in the country).

Cetin stole three guns from his father he then used to terrorize innocent people this past Friday.

Now, Homeland Security Chair Michael McCaul says there’s a decent shot the incident was Islamic terror.


Cheryl Mills Immunity Bombshell: She Avoided Signing Mandatory Security Forms

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Top Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills was granted immunity by the Department of Justice in the federal FBI investigation into the Clinton email scandal.

Mills was reportedly given immunity right before the Feds started looking through her computer for classified information. Why was Mills given immunity? Why did this information come out, through congressional sources, on Friday?

Mills could be in hot water.

Bombshell evidence shows that Mills may never have qualified for a security clearance to view classified information. This evidence becomes especially meaningful now. Just this week, a federal judge ruled that the State Department must start turning over information pertaining to the security training, briefings, and clearances that were undertaken or obtained by Hillary Clinton and her aides including Mills.

FBI Investigation of EmailGate Was a Sham

NSA Analyst: We now have incontrovertible proof the Bureau never had any intention of prosecuting Hillary Clinton

From the moment the EmailGate scandal went public more than a year ago, it was obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation never had much enthusiasm for prosecuting Hillary Clinton or her friends. Under President Obama, the FBI grew so politicized that it became impossible for the Bureau to do its job – at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned.

As I observed in early July, when Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not be seeking prosecution of anyone on Team Clinton over EmailGate, the Bureau had turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice. “Malfeasance by the FBI, its bending to political winds, is a matter that should concern all Americans, regardless of their politics,” I stated, noting that it’s never a healthy turn of events in a democracy when your secret police force gets tarnished by politics.

Just how much Comey and his Bureau punted on EmailGate has become painfully obvious since then. Redacted FBI documents from that investigation, dumped on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, revealed that Hillary Clinton either willfully lied to the Bureau, repeatedly, about her email habits as secretary of state, or she is far too dumb to be our commander-in-chief.

Worse, the FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011. This crime, representing the worst compromise of classified information in EmailGate – that the public knows of, at least – was somehow deemed so uninteresting that nobody at the FBI bothered to ask anybody on Team Clinton about it.

DEA Warns First Responders and Public About Danger of Exposure to Elephant Tranquilizer

The Drug Enforcement Agency on Thursday warned the public and law enforcement agencies nationwide about the dangers of exposure to carfentanil, an elephant tranquilizer that is ten thousand times more potent than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl, which itself is 50 times more potent than the heroin with which it is often mixed.

Carfentanil is now linked to a "significant number" of overdose deaths in the U.S., and DEA warns that improper handling of the synthetic opioid "has deadly consequences."

"It is crazy dangerous," said DEA Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg. "I hope our first responders -- and the public -- will read and heed our health and safety warning."

Carfentanil and other fentanyl-related compounds are a serious danger not only to police and other first responders, but also to medical and laboratory personnel, the DEA said.

The opioids come in several forms, including powder, blotter paper, tablets, and spray, and they can be absorbed through the skin or accidental inhalation of airborne powder.

A German’s View on Islam

Hard to argue with this:

This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read.

The author of this email is Dr Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come.' My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.

'We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is a religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace.
‘Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

'The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide.
‘It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
'The hard quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.

‘Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.

The New Yorker Magazine On Trump

This is absolutely brilliant. A surprising article from the New Yorker Magazine. This magazine has always been a left wing apologizer so this article is even more amazing. Don’t pass it up. 

The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote extensively about Obama even before he was nominated.

"Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald Trump?"

The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment.

Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only." They know there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.

Ben Carson is not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides - lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an[islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)

Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why?

Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.

No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] will slash federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.) No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New Hampshire .

Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
