“DHS Official: I Was Ordered to Purge Records of Islamic Terror Ties”

Actually, it’s a former DHS official. If his allegations are anywhere near true this is insidious.

lined up for beheading

A veteran official with the Department of Homeland Security claims he and other staff were ordered to destroy records on a federal database that showed links between possible jihadists and Islamic terrorist groups.

“After leaving my 15-year career at DHS, I can no longer be silent about the dangerous state of America’s counter-terror strategy, our leaders’ willingness to compromise the security of citizens for the ideological rigidity of political correctness—and, consequently, our vulnerability to devastating, mass-casualty attack,” the former employee, Patrick Haney, wrote in an explosive column that was published late Friday on The Hill website.

Haney alleges that the Obama administration has been “engaged in a bureaucratic effort” to destroy the raw material and intelligence the Department of Homeland Security has been collecting for years, leaving the United States open to mass-casualty attacks.”

Maybe You Didn’t Notice But That’s Just How He Operates.

This is from the New York Times’ Politics Page:

“Obama’s Lofty Plans on Gun Violence Amount to Little Action”

WASHINGTON — The centerpiece of a plan for stemming gun violence that President Obama announced to great fanfare last month largely amounts to this: an updated web page and 10,000 pamphlets that federal agents plan to give out at gun shows.

In a tearful display of anger and sadness in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama ordered a series of steps intended to limit gun violence and vowed to clamp down on what he called widespread evasion of a federal law requiring gun dealers to obtain licenses.

But few concrete actions have been put in motion by law enforcement agencies to aggressively carry out the gun dealer initiative, despite the lofty expectations that Mr. Obama and top aides set.

Obama administration officials said they have no specific plans to boost investigations, arrests or prosecutions of gun sellers who do not comply with the law. No task forces have been assembled. No agents or prosecutors have been specifically reassigned to such cases. And no funding has been reallocated to accelerate gun sale- investigations in Washington or at the offices of the 93 United States attorneys.”

Saints be praised. This President has, over and over again, shown himself to be shallow and uncommitted. What matters most to him is that he can Say he has taken action. It is not important that action actually occurs. Look at the nuclear agreement he signed with Iran. He gave them every thing they wanted, got nothing in return. He actually didn’t even Ask for anything. He could have suggested the release of the Americans Iran is hold in but he didn’t.

Now he can say he has taken action toward gun control because his eyes leaked when he talked about it. As the NYT notes there are no actions behind his ‘Promise’. It’s unfortunate that their editorial board is unable to see the big picture with Barack Obama. They can not see past his marvelous skin tone.

It’s not unlike the reason they support Hillary Clinton. It’s entirely because of her supposed genitalia.

“Iraqi migrant rapes a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Vienna and tells police it was a ‘sexual emergency'”

This story is a great argument for capital punishment. This savage saw nothing wrong with what he did. He will do it again.

30EE1AD400000578-3434708-image-a-2_1454751744814

A 10-year-old boy was so brutally raped by an Iraqi migrant in a swimming pool cubicle that he had to be hospitalised for his injuries.
A lifeguard immediately called an ambulance after the boy went to him in floods of tears, while the Iraqi was entertaining himself by repeatedly jumping off the three-metre diving board.
Police arrested him on the spot at the pool in Vienna, and during an interrogation, he told them that it was a ‘sexual emergency’ as he had not had sex in four months.”

A Good Good Cop Story From South Chicago

“Officers break the rules to save baby wounded in drive-by shooting”

11 Month-old Princeton Chew

11 Month-old Princeton Chew

The officers found five people shot, all victims of a drive-by shooting. One of them was 11-month-old Princeton Chew. Princeton’s pregnant mother and his grandmother were also shot and lay bleeding on the street.

A woman came running up to both officers holding the baby. Modzelewski knew right away the baby had been shot.

“It’s an unreal situation. Borderline helplessness,” the 11-year Chicago police veteran said. “You’re not quite sure what to do. You want to take action, some kind of action simply because it is a child, and that’s pretty much what we did.”

The officers broke a department policy, opting to rush the baby to the hospital themselves in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.”

Well, Well: “Iowa Democrats reviewing some caucus precinct results”

Iowa Democrats are feeling the heat because the local paper has challenged the honesty of the caucus results. As a result they have agreed to look at one or two precincts that they can choose to see if everything was on the up-and-up. There was so much funny business reported after the caucus that everyone, except Hillary supporters, of course, want to know just what went on.

This is a start but now is not the time for the Register and the rest of the country to let up on the pressure.

The Register, too, has received numerous reports that the results announced at precincts Monday night don’t match what the Iowa Democratic Party has posted on its official results website.

Just one example: Grinnell precinct No. 1.

At least three caucusgoers there (including Dan McCue and Zack Stewart) and the Grinnell College newspaper reported that Sanders won 19 county delegates and Clinton 7, but party officials said the final tally was Sanders 18 and Clinton 8.”

How Has The Increased Minimum Wage Affected Jobs Market?

Investor’s Business Daily has been looking into it. This action/reaction phenomenon is really a no-brainer. Thinking people understand that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Non-thinking people don’t care. They just want MORE.

“Minimum Wages Surged In 6 Cities Last Year; Then This Happened”

ECONwage_020416

Hiring at restaurants, hotels and other leisure and hospitality sector venues slowed markedly last year in metro areas that saw big minimum-wage hikes, new Labor Department data show.

Wherever cities implemented big minimum-wage hikes to $10 an hour or more last year, the latest data through December show that job creation downshifted to the slowest pace in at least five years.”

More Brilliance From The Oval

Every time President Obama proposes something this stupid, this unlikely to be passed by a GOP held Congress, it makes me wonder what his other hand is doing.

“Obama to propose $10-a-barrel oil tax”

obama oil  pump

President Barack Obama is about to unveil an ambitious plan for a “21st century clean transportation system.” And he hopes to fund it with a tax on oil.

Obama aides told POLITICO that when he releases his final budget request next week, the president will propose more than $300 billion worth of investments over the next decade in mass transit, high-speed rail, self-driving cars, and other transportation approaches designed to reduce carbon emissions and congestion. To pay for it all, Obama will call for a $10 “fee” on every barrel of oil, a surcharge that would be paid by oil companies but would presumably be passed along to consumers.”

Tax-and-spend. That’s all this proposal is. Spend more so you can burden the people with more taxes. Do anything you can to focus more control in the hands of the federal government. Even the Politico writer understands that this will go nowhere:

There is no real chance that the Republican-controlled Congress will embrace Obama’s grand vision of climate-friendly mobility in an election year—especially after passing a long-stalled bipartisan highway bill just last year—and his aides acknowledge it’s mostly an effort to jump-start a conversation about the future of transportation. But by raising the specter of new taxes on fossil fuels, it could create a political quandary for Democrats. The fee could add as much as 25 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline, and even with petroleum prices at historic lows, the proposal could be particularly awkward for Hillary Clinton, who has embraced most of Obama’s policies but has also vowed to oppose any tax hikes on families earning less than $250,000 a year.”

“Des Moines Register calls for audit of Iowa results: ‘Something smells in the Democratic Party'”

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that the Clinton campaign will resist this with everything they have. Why? Simple. A review of the Democrat caucus will show that Sanders was actually the winner. With a margin as slim as this it would take only one coin flipper to break down and admit that the toss was rigged. It would only require one precinct to be reversed.

When I first saw the headline above I thought the Register was reacting to Donald Trump’s demand that he get a do-over. But no, the stench of possible, no, likely, corruption comes from – no surprise – the Democrats.

des moines register masthead

From the Des Moines Register opinion page:

Once again the world is laughing at Iowa. Late-night comedians and social media mavens are having a field day with jokes about missing caucusgoers and coin flips.

[…]

What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period. Democracy, particularly at the local party level, can be slow, messy and obscure. But the refusal to undergo scrutiny or allow for an appeal reeks of autocracy.

The Iowa Democratic Party must act quickly to assure the accuracy of the caucus results, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

First of all, the results were too close not to do a complete audit of results. Two-tenths of 1 percent separated Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. A caucus should not be confused with an election, but it’s worth noting that much larger margins trigger automatic recounts in other states.”

Politico also reports the story here.

This whole thing is so… so ‘Clintonesque’.

“U.S. eyes ways to toughen fight against domestic extremists”

The Justice Department wants to come after the three percenters.

One of the most important criminal trials in U.S. history begins March 31 in Denver for Gulf War veteran Timothy McVeigh, accused of blowing up a federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 and injuring 500 others on April 19, 1995.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department is considering legal changes to combat what it sees as a rising threat from domestic anti-government extremists, senior officials told Reuters, even as it steps up efforts to stop Islamic State-inspired attacks at home.

Extremist groups motivated by a range of U.S.-born philosophies present a “clear and present danger,” John Carlin, the Justice Department’s chief of national security, told Reuters in an interview. “Based on recent reports and the cases we are seeing, it seems like we’re in a heightened environment.”

[…]

The government shifted its focus to international terrorism after al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001.

But in recent years anti-government activists, like those who occupied a wildlife preserve in eastern Oregon last month, have regained prominence.”

When Cleve Jones, a longtime gay activist who led the creation of the Aids Memorial Quilt, went to his local gay bar in the Castro district, he saw something that shocked him.

“The tech bros had taken over The Mix. They commanded the pool table and the patio. These big, loud, butch guys. It was scary,” he said. “I’m not heterophobic, but I don’t want to go to a gay bar and buy some guy a drink and have him smirk and tell me he’s straight. They can go anywhere. We can’t.”

The CBS video is a little long but it shows the grown-up in the room. Ted Cruz reacts to Donald Trump’s tantrums.

Ted Cruz lashed out at rival Donald Trump after the billionaire businessman said Cruz was a fraud and “stole” the Iowa caucus. Among his feisty remarks, Cruz said Trump is “hysterical,” “losing it” and “would nuke Denmark.” Watch the full video of the remarks.”

I would hardly call what Cruz said, “Lashing out”.

“How a Trump Tantrum Alters the Race”

Sad Trump

In the wake of the Iowa caucuses, some on the right that have been cheering on Donald Trump’s campaign weren’t happy, and understandably so. Ted Cruz’s victory and Trump’s slide in the last week from a strong lead to barely edging out Marco Rubio for second place changed the dynamic of the GOP race.

Trump did manage to draw a record number of voters in Iowa – to vote against him.

Had Cruz dodged the issue, become defensive, or attempted a cover-up, I’d be upset with him. But he didn’t do any of that. It was a straightforward apology for mishandling a communication issue. There’s no evidence that the Cruz campaign planted the story about Carson’s break.”

This is an effort from the media, CNN, to discredit the only conservative in the race.

What An Opportunity For Fraud!

Oh, man. Who gets to be the city official who decides who gets the dough?

corruption

The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.

Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. Those people would be directed to participate in behavioral therapy and other programs. If they fulfill those obligations and stay out of trouble, they would be paid.

The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year.

[…]

Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie, a Democrat who wrote the legislation, said it was part of a comprehensive approach to reducing violent crime in the city, which experienced a 54 percent increase in homicides last year. Homicides and violent crime are still down significantly since the 2000s, and even more so since the early 1990s when the District was dubbed the nation’s “murder capital.”

McDuffie argued that spending $9,000 a year in stipends “pales in comparison” to the cost of someone being victimized, along with the costs of incarcerating the offender.

“I want to prevent violent crime — particularly gun violence — by addressing the root causes and creating opportunities for people, particularly those individuals who are at the highest risks of offending,” McDuffie, a former prosecutor, said in a letter to constituents last week.

Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser has not committed to funding the program, which would cost $4.9 million over four years, including $460,000 a year in stipend payments, according to the District’s independent chief financial officer. “

Tim Wolverton owns a gun store in Jackson, Mississippi. He has printed up a sign for his store that reads, “If you voted for Kenneth Stokes or Barack Obama you are too stupid to own a gun and we won’t sell you one”.
