Here’s The BOMBSHELL Book That Could Blow Hillary’s Campaign Out Of The Water

Recently declared GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul has been hinting for a while now that a new book would drop bombshell accusations on the Clinton campaign — revelations so explosive and so damaging that they could blow a huge hole in Hillary’s nascent run for the White House, if not sink it altogether. As The New York Times describes it: “The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings ‘big news’ that will ‘shock people’ and make voters ‘question’ the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

The as-yet-unreleased book whose advanced word is already causing huge waves in many media circles is Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, by Peter Schweizer. You may recall that Schweizer is the best-selling author of such hard-hitting political zingers as Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets and Throw Them All Out: How Politicians and Their Friends Get Rich off Insider Stock Tips, Land Deals, and Cronyism That Would Send the Rest of Us to Prison.

The latest Schweizer exposé, as described by the Times, details what the author characterizes as a self-serving “pay to play” racket set up by Bill and Hillary Clinton involving their foundation and her influence while secretary of state. The Times articles calls Clinton Cash “the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.” It reportedly describes the same sort of allegedly illicit activities that resulted in Democrat Sen. Robert Menedez recently being indicted for corruption in office.

A number of media outlets, including Fox News, are readying in-depth reports on Schweizer’s findings for the coming weeks. The New York Times — which has aggressively and repeatedly gone after Hillary Clinton for her questionable use of a personal, private email account to conduct official government business — is once again taking a lead position among liberal media in exposing Mrs. Clinton’s perceived political vulnerabilities.

The revelations in Clinton Cash, notes the Times article, are being downplayed by Clinton campaign operatives trying to dismiss the new 186-page investigation of donations by foreign entities to the Clinton Foundation as just another “conservative hit job.”

“The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.”

Because Mrs. Clinton seems to be able to dodge, shed, and inoculate herself against scandals that would likely bring down many other politicians, it will certainly be interesting to see if this latest round of disclosures and the intense media attention paid to them will actually resonate with Democrat voters who tend to overlook virtually all criticism of Hillary.

‘But This Is Different; This Is An Emergency': The Audacity Of California’s Assisted Suicide Proponents

The testimonies at the Senate Health Committee hearing on assisted suicide (SB 128) were heartfelt and heartrending.  Leading the way was the impassioned plea of Brittany Maynard’s mother, Debbie Ziegler, that there be no more cases in which a terminally ill adult of sound mind is forced to leave her family and friends to seek death with dignity in a strange place. Of course, everyone knows “Thou shalt not kill.” But – we were told by every witness in favor of the bill becoming law – this is different; this is an emergency.

Brittany Maynard was twenty-nine years old when she took her own life on November 1, 2014. Diagnosed with glioblastoma – an aggressive form of brain cancer thought incurable and known to be pain-filled and debilitating – she made a very public decision to end her life before the onset of most of its symptoms rather than deal with the pain and indignity of running its course. She has become – in death – the public face of a burgeoning movement to hasten death in cases like hers. The spearhead is a group called Compassion and Choices – a new name for the old Hemlock Society – whose very existence is based on one lie after another.

Witnesses testified the bill has built-in safeguards to ensure decisions to die will be made by mentally competent patients only–that manipulations and coercion by unscrupulous loved ones and medical professionals seeking transplant materials will be deflected, that copycat suicides by otherwise healthy people will not spike, and that the experience in those states and nations sporting assisted suicide has been uniformly good.  No evidence was presented to support these claims because there is no truth to any of them; the proposed law has no enforceable mechanisms, and the experience in Belgium and the Netherlands has been ghoulish. But the biggest lie is that suicide is mandated by incurable conditions like Maynard’s glioblastoma; the reality is that the disease is being cured as we speak at Duke University, according to CBS News’ Scott Pelley in a report released four days after the senate hearing.

This is truly an emergency, but it is not different. It is not different from any of the other lies the enemy of all life is forever foisting on the people for whom the Son of God gave His life.

Don’t get me wrong. I was a witness myself at that senate hearing; I heard Debbie Ziegler testify, and I know she spoke the truth as she understood it. She believes she speaks for her daughter and for others like her. She is wrong. Dead wrong.

Glioblastoma patients are being treated with a disabled form of the polio virus – God makes all things for an eventual good purpose – and going into remission from the disease. But – the critics will say – what about Parkinson’s and ALS and other debilitating diseases and brain injuries and such? The twin realities are these: there are no patients who cannot be made comfortable during their last days, as medical experts testified to an unmoved senate panel; and there is no way to prevent a person from taking his own life if he is determined to do it. But there are waves of copycat suicides in the otherwise healthy population; there are high incidences of depression and other mental conditions in the people who consider – and may choose – a “medically desperate” end to life. In thirty years of ministry that includes suicide intervention, I have never met anyone who regretted being given a breathing space to think things through a bit more.

The reality is that ethical norms are in place for protection against destructive behavior, not for the inhibition of freedom. And a principle that cannot stand against an emergency is not worth much when times are good, either.

In California alone, we claim “emergency exceptions” to ethical norms when we permit non-physicians to perform abortions. (The emergency exists because so few docs are willing to perform them.) We claim “this is different” when we authorize medical marijuana and taxes disguised as fire prevention fees. (There is no medical reason for smoking wacky weed when the active ingredient is available in a bottle and that fee – if it is so necessary – can be enacted according to law.) We have emergency water rationing and a proposal to raise the top of Shasta Dam – something our governor has dreamed about for years – which will not generate a drop of water in the state. Contracting with Israeli firms to build desalination plants is an approach that could solve California’s water woes forever, but it requires visionary thinking instead of pretending more storage will generate more water. But the biggest emergency we have is voters who keep re-electing the people who do whatever they want whenever they can claim, “But this is different; this is an emergency.” Many of these kool-aid drinkers are Christians.

The National Day of Repentance is calling for a week of prayer and fasting beginning April 30 – the next scheduled National Day of Repentance – and going through May 7, the National Day of Prayer. These two ministries are partnering to call our state to repentance – re-focus on God – and seeking His face in our present emergency. Some will think this a silly exercise, and they are welcome to their view. For those who think – at the very least – nothing is lost by taking the Word of God seriously as it is spoken in 2 Chronicles 7:13-14, go to www.dayofrepentance1.org for details and encouragement. Our emergency is far broader than a mere lack of rain. The good news is that God’s solution is far deeper and more fruitful than what can be covered in a news conference.

Are WalMart’s Pay Raises A Good Thing?

The budding “revolutionary guards” among WalMart employees may be learning a lesson about economics in the real world–a course they were never offered during their substandard public educations.

The pressure from militant employees and union thugs has brought about a series of raises for WalMart workers, which is supposed to be good news. But is it?

Some of these raises will start immediately, and others will follow until all REMAINING workers will see remarkable increases in their salaries; some will be getting $80 per week raises.

Nevertheless, WalMart has not become the largest retailer in the world by voluntarily shrinking its own already razor-thin profit margin. The “hard fought – hard won” raises have a price tag that will be paid by some of the very “revolutionaries” who fought so hard for them.

Since the new pay structure was announced, WalMart has experienced an outbreak of “faulty plumbing” in some of its stores. These suspiciously handy “plumbing failures” have necessitated closing at least five stores due to “ongoing plumbing issues that will require extensive repairs.” A review of the listed stores shows that one, in Pico Rivera, California, has been the scene of ongoing employee work stoppages and picketing.

During the widely reported incidents, a worker was quoted as saying she “walked out …missing her afternoon shift, because ‘when we speak out, they cut my hours in retaliation and they have me pull pallets, which is very hard work. I’m a single mom and I can’t afford them cutting my hours.’”

Apparently, she never heard the story of WalMart’s Jonquiere, Quebec store. In 2004, its workers voted to join a union. In response, the company closed the store six months later, citing the union’s requirement that new workers be added and new work rules be imposed. Yes, the union appealed to the Canadian Supreme Court and won, meaning the 190 fired workers may eventually get back pay with interest; but WalMart had made its point. The store has yet to reopen.

This time, WalMart has apparently learned its lesson: Say you’re closing because of plumbing problems, not union rules!

The Pico Rivera store will be closed for at least six months. Has WalMart now added “lessons from the real world” like “don’t tug on Superman’s cape” to its employee benefits package?

Hillary Attacked From The Left, Branded A Flip-Flopper

While some pundits continue to treat Hillary Clinton’s presidential nomination as a foregone conclusion, at least a few Democrats are poised to put up a primary fight. One of the names bandied about as a potential Hillary crusher is Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, a politician who seemed up for the task in a recent conversation with reporters.

He criticized the former secretary of state for her previous views on a number of issues, primarily because he felt she was too far to the right. The fact that she has since revised her positions to align themselves with the leftist Democrat platform, O’Malley contended, was simply evidence of her willingness to vacillate.

“I’m glad Secretary Clinton’s come around to the right positions on these issues,” he said, referring specifically to immigration and marriage reform.

O’Malley posited that it took her so long to change her position because she was more interested in pleasing potential voters than expressing an unpopular opinion.

“I believe that we are best as a party when we lead with our principles and not according to the polls,” he said. “And every election is about the future. And leadership is about making the right decision — and the best decision — before sometimes it becomes entirely popular.”

For good measure, O’Malley clarified his own views regarding the two issues.

“I believe marriage is a human right,” he said in support of gay marriage, “not a state right. I’m glad she’s come around to that position as well.”

As for providing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, O’Malley asserted that he thinks “we do our country a disservice when we make it harder for new American immigrants to abide by the rules of the road and obtain driver’s licenses.”

Do you think Hillary is more concerned with poll results than what is best for America? Let us know in the comments section below.

Christian Quarterback Tim Tebow To Sign With The Philadelphia Eagles

It looks like ‘Tebowing’ will be returning to the National Football League (NFL).

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, devout Christian quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles after arriving in the City of Brotherly Love Monday, ending a two season hiatus from the NFL. Tebow is set to join the team for offseason workouts.

The quarterback last played a game in the NFL with the New York Jets, backing up Mark Sanchez in 2012–who he will rejoin in Philadelphia. He played the previous two seasons for the Denver Broncos, where he was drafted 25th overall in 2010, reaching the AFC championship in 2011. The devout Christian will not only rejoin Sanchez, but former roommate Riley Cooper.

In 2013, he was invited to training camp with the New England Patriots but was cut from the roster by Head Coach Bill Belichick before the start of the season. He has been working as an analyst for the SEC Network (a subsidiary of ESPN) since 2014, and as a commentator for ABC’s Good Morning America.

Prior to being drafted by the Broncos, Tebow captured two NCAA National Championships and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 with the University of Florida.

As The Washington Post notes, this would add Tebow to a depth chart which includes Sam Bradford (who was acquired last month with the St. Louis Rams in a deal for Nick Foles), Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley, and G.J. Kinne.

Many have already taken to Twitter to laud the Christian athlete for his return to professional football:
