BUSTED: Emails Reveal Hillary Aid And CNN Reporter Caught Conspiring To Do THIS At Benghazi Hearing

The U.S. media has always claimed itself to be an “unbiased” review of “the news,” and that its reporters do only that: report. But a recent review of Hillary Clinton’s emails seems to show that a CNN reporter coordinated with Clinton’s staff to push favorable stories on social media.

The CNN reporter in question is the network’s foreign affairs reporter, Elise Labott; and her communications seem to show that she coordinated with Clinton’s top State Department staffers during the former secretary of state’s January 23, 2013 Senate testimony about the Benghazi attacks.

The emails show that Labott took directions from Clinton staffer Philippe Reines by posting criticisms of Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul because he dared to ask tough questions of the secretary during the hearings.

According to the Daily Caller, “Labott also coordinated with Reines to post a favorable quote from Clinton’s testimony, which she gave just a week before she left office.”

After posting some of the tweets she was directed to post, Labott also engaged in high fiving Hillary with the State Department staffer.

“She was great. well done. I hope you are going to have a big drink tonight,” Labbot said to Reines in compliments over Clinton’s performance at the hearings.

And that wasn’t all. The next series of emails shows that Reines asked the “reporter” to join him on an instant messaging service so she could get further instructions. Minutes later, she sent an email saying, “done.”

According to Phil Kerpen, it appears that the “done” was in reference to a tweet Labott posted on January 23 at 4:01 PM. It was a tweet pushing a claim Clinton made during the testimony.

Kerpen needled the CNN “reporter,” saying, “A reporter who Tweets on request!”

This isn’t the first time that this CNN “reporter” has revealed her apparent left-wing bias on Twitter. In fact, she was recently suspended for two weeks after slamming Republicans for their vote to put a halt to President Obama’s importation of Syrian “refugees.”

On November 19, Labott tweeted, “House passes bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish.” This sort of opining, CNN claimed, violates its code of journalistic practices, and so Labott was suspended.

626 Democrat Politicians Just Rose Up Against Obama And Sent Him A Demand He Didn’t Want To See

Over 600 Democrat politicians from 32 states have joined together to oppose the centerpiece of Pres. Obama’s climate change agenda, the Clean Power Plan.

“As Democrats committed to a prosperous America and a healthy environment, we believe the United States has a unique opportunity to lead the world in addressing the global climate challenge, and yet do so, as we must, without unduly burdening the American economy or the American people,” the Democratic coalition called CoalBlue said in a letter sent Tuesday to Obama.

“The letter was signed by 626 state and local officials from nearly three dozen states, including 177 state legislators, 278 local elected officials and 148 Democratic Party officials,” the Washington Examiner reports

These leaders believe the Environmental Protection Agency’s new rules regarding carbon emissions will cause great harm to the economy:

Unfortunately, the EPA’s recently published rules for new and existing electric generating units severely miss the mark in many important regards. Taken together, they endanger the continued development of critical carbon-mitigating technologies necessary to achieve sustainability, threaten the reliability of the U.S. power grid, and place significant economic burdens on the American economy and the American people, in the form of higher energy costs and a potentially less reliable electric grid, without achieving any meaningful reductions in global CO2 emissions.

“The EPA, while well intentioned, has lost sight of the importance of preserving affordable and reliable energy in its pursuit of clean energy,” the Democrat leaders add.

As reported by Western Journalism, the EPA’s Clean Power Plan calls for a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by the nation’s power industry by 2030.

The energy sources that will be impacted the most by the new regulations are coal and natural gas. Currently, the United States derives 39 percent of its energy from coal, 27 percent from natural gas, 19 percent from nuclear, 6 percent from hydroelectric, and 7 percent from other renewables (mostly wind power).

The president has stated that his plans for the energy sector will necessarily cause utility rates to “skyrocket and result in the closure of coal-fired power plants.

The Heritage Foundation released a study last fall that found the EPA regulations the Obama administration has announced in order to achieve its climate change goals would reduce the United States’ Gross Domestic Product by $2.5 trillion by 2030. Further, employment levels would “track nearly 300,000 jobs below the no-carbon-regulation baseline in an average year, with some years seeing an employment deficit of more than 1 million jobs.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that a typical U.S. household could lose about $3,400 in disposable income per year, with a combined loss for all households of $586 billion by 2030, due to Obama’s new EPA climate change regulations.

The report by the Institute for Energy Research concludes that the “EPA’s regulations impose huge costs for small benefits. The agency’s ozone rule could be the single costliest regulation in U.S. history…Meanwhile, EPA’s CO2 rule will impose double-digit electricity rate hikes for residents of 43 states, but limit global warming by just 0.02 degrees Celsius. The solution is for EPA to withdraw its proposed ozone and CO2 rules.”

The Senate voted last week for two resolutions (both 52-48) blocking the implementation of Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), with Democrats Joe Machin (W.Va.) and Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) siding with Republicans. The House will likely take up the resolutions next week, while the president travels to Paris to take part in the U.N. Conference on Climate Change. The White House has promised Obama will veto the congressional resolutions.

Twenty-four states have joined together to sue the Obama’s EPA to block implementation of a new CPP rule regarding CO2 emissions.

Hillary Just Vowed To Never Utter These 2 Words During Her Campaign- And It Says A LOT

Hillary Clinton promised on Tuesday to refrain from using the phrase “illegal immigrant” during the rest of her campaign, saying she employed a “poor choice of words” at a previous campaign event.

Jose Antonia Vargas, an immigration activist, asked the former secretary of state during a Telemundo Facebook chat if she would commit to his “#wordsmatter” pledge regarding the issue.

“On behalf of the organization I founded, Define American, and the 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in this country — including myself — I am asking all the presidential candidates to recognize that #wordsmatter by committing to not using the term ‘illegal’ when referencing the undocumented population,” Vargas wrote on Facebook.

Vargas and others seeking a recognized status by the government for those who moved into the United States illegally prefer the term on “undocumented immigrants.”

Clinton responded to Vargas’ question on Facebook writing, “Yes, I will. That was a poor choice of words. As I’ve said throughout this campaign, the people at the heart of this issue are children, parents, families, DREAMers. They have names, and hopes and dreams that deserve to be respected.”

“I’ve talked about undocumented immigrants hundreds of times and fought for years for comprehensive immigration reform,” Clinton added. “And I will continue to do so.”

“We are a country built by immigrants and our diversity makes us stronger as a nation – it’s something to be proud of, celebrate, and defend,” she concluded.

At a town hall in New Hampshire earlier this month, Clinton was asked about securing the border to stop the flow of illegal immigrants.

“Look, I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. And I do think you have to control your borders,” Clinton said.

Ted Cruz argued during the Republican presidential debate earlier this month that the United States has the right and the responsibility to uphold its immigration laws.

“I will say for those of us who believe people ought to come to this country legally and we should enforce the law, we’re tired of being told it is anti-immigrant, it’s offensive!” Cruz said.

“I am the son of an immigrant who came legally from Cuba to seek the American dream and we can embrace legal immigration, while believing in the rule of law,” he said.

“And I would note, try going illegally to another country. Try going to China or Japan. Try going to Mexico. See what they do. Every sovereign nation secure its borders and it is not compassionate to say we are not going to enforce the law and we are going to drive down wages for millions of hardworking Americans.”  

Ted Cruz Just Got HUGE News That Has Trump Looking Him Straight In The Eyes

“Say it to my face!”

Those words last week from Senator Ted Cruz challenging Barack Obama may have been what Iowa voters were waiting for before putting their seal of approval on Cruz in the latest Iowa polls.

Western Journalism reported that Cruz made headlines last week when he responded to criticism from Obama. Obama called Cruz out for his stance on keeping Syrian refugees out of the U.S.  Obama even implied hypocrisy on the part of Cruz, whose family benefited from an open door refugee policy toward Cubans fleeing the Castro regime.

Now, possibly as a result of Cruz’s strong words and firm stance against Obama’s foreign policies, the senator is in a virtual neck and neck tie with Donald Trump in Iowa polls. Quinnipiac University polls have Trump leading Cruz, 25% to 23%, and Carson leading Rubio, 18% to 13%. Trump supporters are likely to be unwavering. 

One twitter user, Bill Mitchell of Charlotte, N.C., who is also a self-professed “Yuge Donald Trump fan,” tweeted about the Quinnipiac poll. He tweeted: “We have 4 new national polls and 3 new Iowa polls showing Trump CRUSHING Cruz yet the media reports ONLY Q-Poll showing it close. Typical.”

According to Real Clear Politics, only the latest Quinnipiac poll of Iowa voters has Cruz in a dead heat with Trump. The national polls still have Trump as the clear front-runner.

But the Cruz campaign has a lot to celebrate, and a lot of work ahead of the Iowa primaries. Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier told Politico, “Sixty-eight days until Iowa…It’s game time.”

Politico interviewed Doug Gross, who is a knowledgeable Iowa Republican. Gross reportedly told Politico, “Once people start to have second thoughts, to the extent they do, about Trump, those … tea party Republicans will start gravitating toward Cruz…I think he’s got staying power…I expect him to win Iowa.”

Glenn Beck Claims This Scary Prediction He Made Years Ago Is Now Coming True

As he has monitored the rise of ISIS, the resurgence of Russia and the collapse of the West’s moral order, radio host Glenn Beck has long warned the world that it is drifting closer to World War III.

“I wish we would have been wrong,” Beck said. “But we’re not.”

Beck warned that countries of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization might soon start calling for the invocation of Article Five, which requires all of NATO to respond if one member state is attacked. Turkey, which shot down a Russian jet on Tuesday near the Turkey-Syria border, is a NATO member.

“If anybody is talking about Article (Five) — and this could be brought up by France. I don’t think it will be brought up by Turkey, but it could be,” Beck said. “If anybody starts talking about Article (Five), that is the article in the NATO alliance that brings us all to war.”

Article Five was last invoked after the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

Beck also revealed the extent to which the Obama administration is complicit in ISIS’ rise to power. He shared a 2012 declassified Department of Defense document that discussed the possibility of a radical Islamic group opposing Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

“If the situation unravels, there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist (orthodox Sunni) principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime,” the document states.

Beck said the Obama administration let ISIS flourish because “this president wanted an extremist Islamic group fighting Assad.”

“Team Obama would have you believe that ISIS caught them by surprise and we’re doing everything we can to destroy them,” Beck said. “In reality, they saw ISIS coming. They wanted ISIS to come.”

America is now “reaping what has been sown by our own president,” Beck said.
