Obama Concerned About Missile Tests, Intelligence Director Calls It ‘Deliberate Message Of Defiance’

Video Transcript:

In November and December, Iran carried out two missile tests in breach of UN resolutions. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was critical of Iran and the Iran/U.S. nuclear deal during his testimony Tuesday.

JAMES CLAPPER: The Iranians have conducted some 140 launches since the original U.N. Security Council Resolution 1929. It was imposed in 2010. As far as these two launches are concerned, I think this was a deliberate message of defiance, and that the Iranians are going to continue with their aggressive program to develop their missile force. Iran probably views the [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] as a means to remove sanctions while preserving nuclear capabilities. Iran’s perception of how the JCPOA helps it achieve its overall strategic goals will dictate the level of its adherence to the agreement over time.

After Iran’s missile tests late last year, North Korea jumped into the mix with a missile test of their own on Sunday.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I think we have been concerned about North Korea’s behavior for a while. This is an authoritarian regime. It’s provocative. It has repeatedly violated U.N. resolutions, tested and produced nuclear weapons and now, they’re trying to perfect their missile launch systems.

GAYLE KING: Were you surprised that they had actually launched a missile over the weekend, when you first heard it?

OBAMA: No. This is something that we’ve anticipated. We’ve seen a pattern of behavior over them. They are not very good at feeding their people, but they invest a huge amount in their weapon systems.

With Iran and North Korea provoking, it begs the question: how far can they go before something is done about it? Share and comment below.

Hillary Clinton Has Trust Issues – New Hampshire Voters Don’t Believe Her

Video Transcript:

Ahead of Tuesday’s NH primary, voters just aren’t sold on Hillary Clinton.

MALE VOTER #1: I’ve heard from quite a few people my age that they think you’re dishonest.

FEMALE VOTER #1: Is what she’s promising on the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire something that she really is—that we’re going to see on her presidential agenda?

FEMALE VOTER #2: I really don’t trust her.

MALE VOTER #2: I just – I think for me – I just right now can’t vote for Hillary. I can’t believe her.

FEMALE VOTER #3: I don’t think she is believable. I just, I don’t have the good vibes about her.

MALE VOTER #3: Hillary Clinton says many, many great things but often times her donors contradict her policy standpoints. So there’s a little bit of lack of legitimacy there for me.

Mrs. Clinton however, relentlessly claims the contrary.

HILLARY CLINTON: People should, and do trust me. And I have every confidence that that will be the outcome of this election.

Uh Oh: NH Women Offended At Hillary Clinton Playing Gender Card – MSNBC Shocked

Video Transcript:

During Thursday night’s debate, Hillary Clinton claimed she couldn’t be an establishment candidate because she’s a woman.

HILLARY CLINTON: Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me – a woman running to be the first woman president – as exemplifying the establishment. And I’ve got to tell you…

Kristen Soltis from the Washington Examiner says young women voters don’t care that Hillary is a woman.

KRISTEN SOLTIS: I think it’s a very bizarre argument. And what I’ve seen time and again – whenever I’ve done focus groups or research on younger women – they don’t necessarily give her credit because she’s a female candidate. They sort of assume that they’ll see a female president in their lifetime. That that to them does not seem like this incredibly special reason to vote for her. They want to know do they agree with her on the issues.

New Hampshire voters agreed with her.

WOMAN VOTER: I also am a woman. I also face discrimination as being a woman. Her feminism does not represent my feminism. And I think it’s really important to differentiate that.

WOMAN VOTER: It’s like, I think you have to realize that everybody is human and like, you have to go for who has the best ideals. Just because she’s a woman, doesn’t necessarily make her the best candidate.

MSNBC reporter Tamron Hill was blown away these women wouldn’t blindly vote for another woman.

TAMRON HILL: The young women there did not care that Hillary Clinton could be the first woman president. In fact, several of them were offended when she brought the line up pointing to the fact that, “How could I be an establishment? I’m a woman running for president.”

Border Patrol Agents Are Being Ordered To Stand Down By Obama Administration

Video Transcript:

Trey Gowdy and the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing Thursday about the Obama administration’s inability to secure the southern border.

TREY GOWDY: Secretary [Jeh] Johnson testified before the appropriations committee: “The message we are sending to people crossing the border is you will be sent home.” Either that message has not been communicated or it has not been received because the border cross, the unlawful border crossings continue.

According to U.S. Border Patrol, the Obama administration is ordering the release of illegal immigrants, effectively allowing them to stay.

BRANDON JUDD: The willful failure to show up for court appearances by persons that were arrested and released by the Border Patrol has become an extreme embarrassment for the Department of Homeland Security. It has been so embarrassing that DHS and the U.S. Attorney’s office has come up with a new policy. Simply put, the new policy makes mandatory the release, without an NTA, of any person arrested by the Border Patrol for being in the country illegally, as long as they do not have a previous felony arrest conviction and as long as they claim to have been continuously in the United States since January of 2014. The operative word in this policy is “claim.” The policy does not require the person to prove they have been here which is the same burden placed on them during deportation proceedings. Instead, it simply requires them to claim to have been here since January of 2014. Not only do we release these individuals that by law are subject to removal proceedings, we do it without any means of tracking their whereabouts. In essence, we pull these persons out of the shadows and into the light just to release them right back to those same shadows from whence they came. Immigration laws today appear to be mere suggestions. There are little or no consequences for breaking the laws and that fact is well known in other countries. If government agencies like DHS or CBP are allowed to bypass Congress by legislating through policy, we might as well abolish our immigration laws altogether. In the absence of consequences and enforceable laws innocent people are hurt, criminals are rewarded, chaos abounds, and cartels reap huge financial benefits.

Journalists Notice Problem For Hillary Clinton In Her Shouting

Video Transcript:

After observing Monday’s Iowa primary and her previous speeches, journalists noticed a weakness in Hillary Clinton’s loud delivery style.

HILLARY CLINTON: What a night! An unbelievable night. What a great campaign … For the democratic party and the United States of America … I know that we can finish the job of universal healthcare coverage for every single man woman and child.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe sees deficiencies in her bluster.   

BOB WOODWARD: I think a lot of it with Hillary Clinton has to do with style and delivery, oddly enough. She shouts. There’s something unrelaxed about the way she is communicating and I think that just jumps off.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Last night I was watching her and I said to myself, “Has nobody told her that the microphone works?”

WOODWARD: There is something here, where Hillary Clinton suggests that she’s almost not comfortable with herself. And you know, self-acceptance is something that you communicate on television.

SCARBOROUGH: But you were right though. Hillary’s always up here and again, it’s just not natural to her.

WOODWARD: She could make a case for herself if she would just kind of lower the temperature and say, “Look, this is what I’ve done, this is what I can do, this is what I believe in,” and kind of get off this screaming stuff.

Howard Dean was then shut down trying to claim people only criticize Hillary because she’s a woman.

HOWARD DEAN: If she were a male and she were making these kinds of speeches, would people be criticizing her for…

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: No, oh my God, that’s desperate.

DEAN: I’m sorry to say it, I didn’t want to but…

SCARBOROUGH: I promise you if there was a man who always talked like this on stage, I would make fun of that man a lot faster than I would have to a woman.
