Following Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, primary voters rushed to sing the praises of their favorite candidates. For many Americans, however, including one who was on the debate stage, these performances are not expected to change the trajectory of next Tuesday’s delegate-rich, 12-state primary election day.

“Nobody’s going to win but Trump,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich told a CNN reporter just minutes after the debate concluded.

While he predicted brash front-runner Donald Trump will run the tables on March 1, he did acknowledge that there might be one anomaly in Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s home state.

“Well, look,” Kasich said, “I don’t know that, OK? It’s very, very close.”

Cruz has been leading Trump in several Lone Star State polls this week.

Though Kasich might be writing off many of the delegates up for grabs on Tuesday, he made it clear that he still sees a path to victory for his campaign.

“I will come out of Vermont, Montana, Massachusetts,” he said. “We’re spending a lot of time in Virginia. We hope that those will be productive for us.”

Beyond that, he said he hopes to gain momentum across predominantly northern states, with one Deep South exception.

“And then we’ll move from that to Michigan and Mississippi,” he said, “where we think we’ll have a good shot.”

By the time the primary reaches his home state, Kasich hopes to have already established a dominating campaign.

“When it goes north, when it trends to Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, you know, Michigan, and then over to New York and New Jersey and Connecticut,” he concluded, “who do you think is going to come north and be able to beat me there?”

Donald Trump apparently had his hands full at Thursday’s Republican presidential debate hosted by CNN. With attacks coming continually from both Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, Trump, according to a post-debate poll,  still came out on top. However, Trump’s popularity is in stark contrast to how he’s perceived by individuals who may have a better grasp of civics than the Republican front-runner.

In an exchange with Cruz, Trump made several inaccurate statements about the role of judges. Trump attempted to defend his sister’s record as a judge, but in doing so, revealed to the audience a bit of judicial ignorance, according to Leon H. Wolf of Red State. Trump said:

Now, Ted’s been very critical, I have a sister, who is a brilliant, [interruption] excuse me, she’s a brilliant judge. He’s been criticizing… he’s been criticizing my sister for signing a certain bill. You know who else signed that bill? Justice Samuel Alito, a very conservative member of the Supreme Court, with my sister signed that bill. So, I think that maybe we should get a little bit of an apology from Ted, what do you think?

 

Critical of the revealed ignorance in Trump’s comments Wolf wrote, “This is not ‘Trump isn’t a politician,’ this is ‘Trump doesn’t understand Civics 101.’” Judges do not sign bills which leaves open the question as to what Trump might have been trying to say. Was he referring a judicial decision? Was he referencing a court order? At any rate, Trump did not appear any more knowledgeable with his comments in the post-debate interview.

In the interview, Trump was asked who he would recommend for the vacant Supreme Court seat left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Trump replied, “I would want to see scholars, but I think more than my asking, I would go on references of other people that I respect. Because that is not necessarily my world. I’m very much into the world of legal and legality. But, that is not my world, so I would go to people that I have great respect for and say, ‘Who do you recommend?’” Trump has often fallen back on his role as a businessman, rather than a politician, when asked tough questions, a fact Blitzer highlighted when he wrote about the interview with Trump.

Wolf wrote, “This is a pretty stunning admission from Trump … What Trump is saying here is that he, personally, has no idea whatsoever what he would do. He has no idea what questions he might ask of a judge. This is not a guy who can be trusted … By his own admission he has literally no idea what he’s doing when it comes to judicial nominations. Quite frankly, as he demonstrated in the debate, he does not even know what judges do. And this is someone you want picking the replacement for Scalia?”

Outrage erupted at a Kentucky high school after several parents found anti-police artwork on display in their children’s classroom.

According to a report by WLKY, the artwork was the product of an honors English class assignment at North Oldham High School. Students were asked to read To Kill A Mockingbird, then draw pictures showing what they believed to be social injustice.

The artwork that sparked the outrage depicts a Klu Klux Klan member in 1930 about to shoot a black man alongside a picture of a police officer shooting a black child in 2015. It was drawn by a student in a previous year’s class.

 

But some parents and local residents haven’t accepted this response and are calling for the images to be taken down.

“I do think it’s a little dramatic, and right now it is a very touching time to have something like that come up,” said David Byrd. “They risk their lives for this job and our communities. Cops aren’t killers, they defend our safety. That’s my opinion about it.”

One of the parents upset about the artwork is David Hamblin, a local police offer. His daughter is a student in the class.

“My daughter is not unlike other children of first responders. Hamblin posted on Facebook. “She fears for my safety every day, and believes me to be a man of honesty and courage. What this propaganda creates, are future cop haters, which endanger me, and 800,000 other courageous protectors.”

“When I saw it, I could see immediately why [my daughter] didn’t feel comfortable with it, because I didn’t feel comfortable with it,” Hamblin told WDRB in an interview Wednesday. “It’s comparing a race-based ideology, or the KKK, to that of professional workers who serve their country day-in and day-out. There’s propaganda and there’s the First Amendment. They’re two different things, especially in a government-run classroom.”

North Oldham High School responded to the concerns with the following statement. “We believe that our role as educators is to prepare our kids for the world beyond the classroom, and sometimes things are going to be controversial,” said Tracy Green, the director of communications for Oldham County Schools.

“They’re pictures about social injustice, so I would assume they’re a little offensive to a lot of people, because we’re talking about a controversial issue,” Green continued.

While the school says it understands the anger, and that these images are in no way meant to diminish the service police perform, the images will not be coming down.

The attack and robbery of former Marine, Chris Marquez, on Feb. 12, as he exited a McDonald’s in D.C. made headline news.

This was not a lone incident. According to The Gateway Pundit, there was a second, unrelated attack on a Marine that day.

In the second attack, Operation Iraqi Freedom Marine, 35-year old Michael Schoeder, was viciously attacked, struck in the head and robbed. Schroeder was seen in the street, face down and beat up between two cars.

A man and his son driving by in a taxi saw Schoeder, contacted authorities and reported the attack.

Deidre Schroeder, the victim’s mother, was interviewed by WUSA-9. She said, “It’s an angel whoever found him and I’m very, very grateful. Michael could’ve died that night.”

Schroeder’s mother said that her son had been missing all day. Michael’s twin brother had been searching for him and finally located him in George Washington Hospital.

Michael suffered a severe concussion along with a fractured skull. Staples had been used to close the head wounds. He also had difficulty speaking.

Schroeder told WUSA-9 that he remembered having drinks with some friends. Later they left to go home and that is all he can recall.

“I wasn’t trying to find trouble,” Schroeder said. “I was actually trying to walk home.”

The police report stated that Schroeder appeared to be very cold and highly intoxicated. He was also bleeding from a blow to the head.

When asked why someone would attack him, Schroeder said, “It’s hard for me to understand because there would’ve been zero reason for it. He said his cell phone had not been taken, but he was missing between $40 and $60.

According to police, the attack was not captured on surveillance cameras in the area.

The police also state that they do not believe that this attack was connected to the attack on Chris Marquez.

Former president of Mexico Vincente Fox is not a fan of Donald Trump, or his plan to have Mexico pay to build a wall along the border of the two countries.

In an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Fox declared, “I’m not going to pay for that f–g wall.”

Fox then took on the role of a preacher by advising Hispanics not to follow Trump because he’s a “false prophet.” Fox also declared that what is happening in the U.S. presidential race is “not democracy” and said Trump will pay for the wall because he’s got enough money to do it on his own. Fox concluded Trump is simply egocentric.

Trump took umbrage with Fox’s comments about him. During Thursday’s Republican presidential debate, Wolf Blitzer quoted Fox’s f-bomb and then asked Trump how he would still intend to pay for the wall without Mexico’s help and how he would make them pay for it.

Trump responded, “I will and the wall just got 10 feet taller believe me. It got 10 feet taller. I saw him make the statement. I saw him use the word that he used. I can only tell you if I would have used even half of that word, it would be a national scandal. This guy used a filthy disgusting word on television, and he should be ashamed of himself and he should apologize.”

Trump alluded to possibly of going after current trade agreements with Mexico.

“We have a trade deficit with Mexico of $58 billion a year and that doesn’t include all the drugs that are pouring across and destroying our country,” Trump said. “We’re going to make them pay for that wall. Now the wall is $10 billion to $12 billion if I do it. If these guys do it it’ll end up costing $200 billion.”

Trump said, “You need a thousand miles. The great wall of China, built 2,000 years ago is 13,000 miles,” implying the wall can be done and will be done if Trump is elected president. “This is a wall that’s going to work.”

“Mexico will pay for the wall. It’s a small portion of the kind of money that we lose and the deficits that we have with Mexico,” Trump concluded.

The gunman who went on a deadly rampage Thursday near Wichita, Kan., recently posted a video on Facebook of him shooting a semi-automatic weapon into a field.

After going on a shooting spree that left three of his co-workers dead and 14 injured, Cedric Ford, 38, was shot and killed by a Kansas sheriff at the Excel Industries plant in Hesston.

Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton stated a deputy had served Ford a restraining order around 3:30 p.m. Thursday involving his live-in girlfriend, the Wichita Eagle reported. The sheriff believes the order was likely what set Ford off on his tirade. 

Ford left the Excel factory, which produces lawn care products, not long after receiving the order and returned at approximately 5 p.m. and opened fire on his co-workers.

Law enforcement officials reported the gunman had a .223-caliber assault-style rifle and a semi-automatic pistol. 

Ford recently posted this video on Facebook.

He also posted multiple pictures of himself with various weapons.

“We always say it won’t happen here. Well here it is. It happened here,” Walton told NBC News regarding the shooting. “We’ll get through it. It’s a good community of good, strong people.”

Court records showed the assailant was a felon who previously lived in Miami and was on probation with a series of convictions in Florida, including burglary in 2000, according to NBC News. “He had a criminal record stretching back to October 1996, when he was charged with carrying a concealed firearm when he was 18 years old, the records showed,” the news outlet reported. 

How Ford obtained his firearms used in Thursday’s shooting is not clear.

Sheriff Walton told reporters that an officer from the Hesston police force, who was not named, went into the factory alone, killed the gunman and “saved a lot of lives.” Approximately 150 people were in the plant at the time the assailant was killed.

Five of the 14 victims injured remained in critical condition Friday in area hospitals.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback asked people to pray for those affected by the mass shooting.

Read More and Comment: Marco Rubio Plans NUCLEAR Option To ‘Take The GOP Nomination’- Voters Will Be OUTRAGED]]>
The campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is reaching a critical period. As Donald Trump gains more supporters, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are struggling to keep up.

However, Sen. Rubio reportedly has a “Hail Mary” plan he hopes with provide him the GOP nomination. Two anonymous sources came forward to CNN after a meeting Wednesday in Manhattan to allege that Rubio is preparing for a contested Republican Convention.

Terry Sullivan, Rubio’s top campaign adviser, provided a blueprint for such a tactic at the meeting with top donors, the sources said.

Sullivan laid out two possible outcomes. Rubio might achieve the necessary delegates to win the election. It’s also possible that none of the three candidates will have the necessary delegates needed to win before the convention. In the latter scenario, a contested convention might be the outcome.

Sullivan said that if John Kasich and Ben Carson were to drop out of the election, Rubio may very well pick up votes from Kasich and Carson supporters and possibly provide him with the leverage to win the nomination.

Sullivan also expressed great confidence that Rubio would win in his home state of Florida.

The Manhattan meeting was attended by approximately 200 people, including some former supporters of Jeb Bush. If Bush supporters are willing to throw their support behind Rubio, Carson and Kasich supporters may do the same.

The Manhattan meeting took place at a time when Rubio has picked up recent endorsements from Bob Dole, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, North Carolina Sen. Thom Tillis, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, Joe Craft, and the Koch brothers, to name a few.

However, many people believe these endorsements have come in too late to quell the Trump campaign’s mobility and progress.

If these high profile endorsements are too late, a contested convention could be a real possibility — even though the last time it happened was during the 1952 presidential campaign.

After ending his presidential bid in the wake of a sixth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s endorsement became a topic of speculation among political pundits.

In a press conference Friday, Christie announced which GOP candidate has his support.

“I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States,” he said.

The high-profile political endorsement came on the heels of Trump’s first congressional endorsements, which he received from Republican congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins earlier this week.

Within minutes, Christie’s announcement gained widespread traction among social media users. Several Twitter users suggested the endorsement was a step toward securing a cabinet position in a potential Trump administration.

“Attorney General then Supreme Court,” one user predicted.

“Woah!,” another replied. “I think I see a possible VP!”

Others recalled the bitter rivalry between Christie and Marco Rubio in the days leading up to the New Hampshire primary.

“Surprised he didn’t endorse Rubio,” a commenter wrote. “They are such good friends.”

A few more cynical social media users insisted the billionaire front-runner paid Christie for the endorsement.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his company are making headlines, but this time it’s not for something being offered to consumers. Instead, the news is coming from within.

Facebook maintains “free speech” whiteboards throughout it’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters. Staff members are allowed to write whatever they wish on the whiteboards.

Zuckerberg is apparently furious someone has, on more than one occasion, marked through “Black Lives Matter” statements and replaced them with “All Lives Matter” comments. Zuckerberg admitted in a private memo to employees he’d already asked his staff to refrain from marking through the BLM messages, yet someone keeps striking through them and writing “all lives matter.”

Zuckerberg was “disappointed” when it was happening earlier, but now he says he considers the action “malicious.” Zuckerberg then made reference to black social justice movements of the BLM group by saying the group only seeks to achieve “the justice they deserve.”

Zuckerberg said there were never any rules about what any staffer wanted to write on the whiteboards, but that striking through messages is equated to “silencing speech.” Zuckerberg then encouraged anyone and everyone to attend the on-campus “Black Town Hall” being held March 4.

It seems from the tone in the memo the free speech whiteboards may not be so free any longer if staffers are being told what they can and cannot do on the whiteboards. Faced with what Zuckerberg appears to view as a crisis of free speech, his leadership decision to investigate “the current incidents” may have some of his employees on edge for exercising their own rights to free speech by disagreeing with BLM statements.

As Elton John might say, astronaut Scott Kelly is “packing his bags, pre-flight.” His “zero hour” comes March 1, at which time he will have spent almost a year on the space station Soyuz.
His descent will come quickly, depositing him near Kazahkstan in a mere 3-1/2 hours. Counting all six missions, Kelly has spent more time in space than any other American astronaut.
One thing Kelly learned during this last mission: “A year is a really, really long time.”
He was there to serve as a kind of lab rat for experiments on the effects of long-term space travel on the human body and mind, to gain a better idea of what a trip to Mars might do. Bone density, vision, inner ear, cognitive ability, mood — all can be affected.
Conveniently, Scott has a twin brother, retired astronaut Mark Kelly, so valuable comparison studies can be made. Scott Kelly likened his time in space to being on a submarine — in that you can’t really go anywhere — but found things to do to pass the time, like corresponding with his more than 900,000 Twitter followers and cavorting in a (wait for it) gorilla suit.
When he steps out of the craft and begins to adjust to the Earth’s gravity, he may be dizzy for a while. But what strikes me is the dizzying amount of change that can happen for the rest of us here on Earth while the space station orbits high above.
Imagine if you were taking off today to spend a year on the space station. When you returned, it would be almost March of 2017. It might be a different world.
We complain that things stay the same regardless of who wins elections, but that’s not true. Things that look bad now have the potential to become better or infinitely worse.
The government can turn on a dime as yet another freedom disappears. If Obama hadn’t won his two terms, we would have different Supreme Court Justices and arguably different decisions that affect millions of lives.
We wouldn’t be looking at a ruined healthcare system. We might even have a coherent foreign policy.
Think how many antiquities might still exist, how many people might still be alive, and how many fleeing migrants might not be fleeing. As crazy as this campaign season is, it does no good to drop out of the system or cast a poorly considered vote in anger and disgust. We must do what we can do.
So, here’s my message to any American about to be shot into space:  Be sure to vote absentee!

Read More and Comment: Revealed: The 1 GOP Candidate The Establishment REALLY Wants Out Of The Race]]>
In one of the latest strategies from a Republican establishment trying to find the right combination of factors to stop presidential candidate Donald Trump, subtle and public pressure is being applied to convince Ohio Gov. John Kasich to drop out of the race.

The concept is that with fewer candidates, Trump foes will outnumber his loyalists and Trump will not win the nomination

There’s one problem: Kasich isn’t going away.

“I’m going to stay in for a long time,” Kasich said. “I’m going all the way.”

In keeping with the tongue-in-cheek tone Kasich often projects, his communications director sent a tweet Thursday calling on another mainstream candidate to quit.

“.‪@JohnKasich is the ONLY candidate who can beat @realDonaldTrump on 3/15. @marcorubio needs to do the right thing & suspend campaign,” tweeted Chris Schrimpf.

For others, it’s not a laughing matter as the establishment tries to coalesce votes behind Sen. Marco Rubio.

“I think it is not helpful to have more than one mainstream candidate in this race,” said Bobbie Kilberg, a prominent Republican fundraiser,

“If at some point John were to decide not to go forward with his campaign, Marco would be the primary beneficiary of that decision,” former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said. “It’s not for me or anyone else to say when John should stay in or get out but … John’s decision to stay in or get out could have a marked impact on the race.”

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who endorsed Rubio earlier this week, said Kasich’s exit would help Rubio.

“It would be, but that’s up to John and John’s got every right to stay in the race,” Hatch said. “But sooner or later, it’s got to come down to Marco if people really look at it carefully.”

Polls in the upcoming Super Tuesday voting show Kasich trailing. However, Kasich’s home state of Ohio votes March 15. If Kasich were to win the winner-take-all contest, he would amass 66 delegates.

“They thought we would have a nominee by some point in March. This is going to be a race that’s going to go much deeper into the calendar,” Kasich strategist John Weaver told reporters Saturday. “The Kasich brand of being uplifting and inclusive, of having a conservative reform agenda that can be enacted and can be positive is a growing force in national politics.

“We do believe that it will be a one-on-one race with Donald Trump.”

As the establishment pushes Kasich, he is pushing back. He recently told a crowd at George Mason University that he’s bucking the establishment.

“I’m not gonna shut something down because a bunch of people in the inner city of Washington who frankly never liked me from the beginning are going to tell me what I’m gonna do,” Kasich said.

“I think it’s funny. I think it’s ridiculous,” he said when asked about efforts to nudge him to the sidelines. “I don’t take orders from K Street, from inner rooms, from lobbyists, I’ve challenged the establishment my whole career.”

In the final Republican debate before Super Tuesday’s slew of primaries, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz finally came to the hunt loaded for bear against Donald Trump. But there is still a lot of animosity between the two senators.

Despite their ire, what the pair did during a commercial break has people talking.

During a timeout from the Trump bashing that constituted a large part of the highly rated GOP debate, Cruz and Rubio crossed the stage to shake hands, something surprising to many because of the vitriol between them.

Even with Rubio’s habit of constantly calling Cruz a “liar,” it appears Cruz was still up for a handshake and a kind word. And Rubio replied in kind, if photos are any indication.

There were also some reports the two senators met and spoke before the debate even started, as well.

Certainly the two freshman Senators did a major tag-team attack on Trump during the debate in an effort Trump dismissed as just a pair of senators “swinging for the fences.”

Trump continued his own debate by jumping onto Twitter to slam his opponents.

Not surprisingly, Trump wasn’t bashful about his performance.

According to CNN, this debate was one of the “highest rated debates in months.”

The Independent Journal Review, along with Google Consumer Surveys, conducted a poll to determine who won Thursday’s Republican presidential candidate debate. According to the opinions of those polled who watched the CNN debates, Donald Trump won by a landslide. The debate, which had Sen. Marco Rubio, on Trump’s left, and Sen. Ted Cruz on his right, could be likened to a fireworks display of attack and counter-attacks, with both Cruz and Rubio sandwiching Trump with their blasts, which were often personal.

Viewers took notice and the poll numbers reflect their opinions on which candidate emerged the victor. Of those polled, 43.6 percent believed Trump defeated his Republican opponents. 29.7 percent has Rubio as the winner. Only 12.1 percent believed Cruz won the debates. Gov. John Kasich (OH) recieved 9.7 percent of the votes, and Dr. Ben Carson, coming in last in the polls, only had 5 percent of the post-debate votes.

Another potential post-debate poll was another question asked in the survey, that is, which candidate did voters most want to exit the race. Unfortunately for Carson, those surveyed also conveyed they most wanted Carson to drop out of the race.

45.2 percent want Carson to exit the race, and 22.1 percent want Kasich to leave the race. 12.6 percent, want Trump to leave the race, but as it appears now, that is very unlikely to happen.

All five Republican candidates side with the FBI over Apple in the stand off regarding gaining access to San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook’s iPhone.

At the GOP debate in Houston on Thursday night all the candidates but Donald Trump were asked whether, as president, they would force Apple to comply with a court order to assist the FBI in gaining access to the cell phone.

As reported by Western Journalism, Apple CEO Tim Cook has claimed the FBI wants his company to create a “backdoor” into the phone’s operating system, which he argues would potentially compromise the security of all iPhone users.

The government has responded that it only wants the company to disable the self-destruct software, so investigators can use its tools to ascertain the password to gain access to the phone’s data.

Trump has called for a boycott of Apple until it complies with the court order. “We gotta get to the bottom of [the San Bernardino shooting], but we’re not going to get to the bottom of it unless we use common sense,” Trump said at campaign event last week. “So I like the idea of boycotting Apple until such time as they give that information – I think that’s a great idea.”


His four GOP rivals also stated that Apple should comply with the order. Sen. Marco Rubio noted at Thursday’s GOP debate that the phone did not even belong to Farook, but to the government. “[A]ll they’re asking [Apple] to do is to disable the self-destruct mode or the auto-erase mode on one phone in the entire world. But Apple doesn’t want to do it because they think it hurts their brand,” the senator said.

Well, let me tell you, their brand is not superior to the national security of the United States of America,” he added, which drew applause from the audience.

Sen. Cruz Ted agreed, stating, “Apple doesn’t have a right to defy a valid court order in a terrorism investigation.”

Dr. Ben Carson pointed out that the Fourth Amendment guarantees citizens’ right against unlawful searches and seizures by the government without probable cause, but such is not the case regarding Farook. “I think allowing terrorist to get away with things is bad for America,” the candidate said adding, “I would expect Apple to comply with the court order.”

Gov. John Kasich said, “You know what the problem is? Where’s the president been? You sit down in a back room and you sit down with the parties and you get this worked out. You don’t litigate this on the front page of the New York Times…” He continued, “[Y]ou know what you do when you’re the president? You lock the door and you say you’re not coming out until you reach an agreement that both gives the security people what they need and protects the rights of Americans.”

The country’s top intelligence official testified on Thursday before Congress that the U.S. faces the highest terror threat level since 9/11.

Appearing before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stated that ISIS has now eclipsed al Qaeda worldwide and that “unpredictable instability has become the new normal,” the Washington Beacon reported

Clapper testified that seven countries now have collapsing governments and an additional 14 are in danger of failing, due to instability, which creates potential safe havens for terrorist groups to rise.

Syria is exhibit A in this global reality, according to the intelligence chief. “There are now more Sunni [Muslim] violent extremist groups, members of safe havens, than any time in history,” Clapper said, noting that the rate of foreign fighters now traveling to Syria and Iraq is “without precedent.”

“At least 38,200 foreign fighters, including 6,900 from Western countries, have made their way to Syria from about 120 different countries since the Syrian conflict began in 2012,” the Beacon reported. 

“Returning foreign fighters [to Europe and elsewhere], with first-hand battlefield experience, poses a dangerous operational threat,” Clapper said, citing last year’s massive terrorist attack in Paris. He added that terrorists could be trained in Iraq and Syria and sent to commit attacks in the U.S. like the one carried out in San Bernardino in December, the Daily Caller reported

The intelligence official also discussed the threat posed by Iran. “Iran continues to be the foremost state sponsor of terror and exert its influence in regional crises in the Mid-East through the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force, its terrorist partner Lebanese Hezbollah, and proxy groups,” Clapper said. “Iran and Hezbollah remain a continuing terrorist threat to U.S. interests and partners worldwide.”

He added that the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei still harbors and fosters hatred towards the United States. “Iran’s supreme leader continues to view the U.S. as a major threat and we assess his views will not change despite the implementation of the [nuclear] deal, the exchange of detainees, and the release of the 10 sailors,” Clapper said.

Another major threat to U.S. security is in the realm of cyber security, where Russia, China, Iran and North Korea hack and collect sensitive data from American networks.

“Targeting collection of the U.S. political, military, economic, and technical information by foreign intelligence services continues unabated,” he said. “Russia and China post the greatest threat, followed by Iran and Cuba on a lesser scale.”

Before the shouting started, there was one thing that everyone at Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate understood: There was a hero in the house.

Former President George Herbert Walker Bush and his wife, Barbara, both attended the event at the University of Houston. Bush, 91 and sitting in a wheelchair, was videoed on his way into the theater where the debate was held. He was later photographed surrounded by grinning students, most of whom were likely not even born during the Bush presidency that saw America regain its military might in the Gulf War while the Cold War ended and the Berlin Wall fall.

Bush’s entrance did not go unnoticed.

“… he was … met with a thunderous response following his entrance to the hall,” reported Chris Tognotti on Bustle. It probably rung to the room as a slightly melancholy moment, given that Jeb was forced to drop out before making it to Super Tuesday, but it was clearly a joyful moment for the partisan crowd as well.”

The crowd was so loud for Bush’s arrival that during the pre-debate coverage on CNN, discussion stopped a moment and one host called the former president’s reception “astounding.”

Bush and his wife also received a moment in the spotlight just before the start of the debate when they were officially announced to the crowd. A standing ovation ensued as the crowd gathered in the 41st president’s former hometown gave him some of the loudest cheers of the night.

During their introduction, Bush grabbed his wife’s hand. Just as though they were the evening’s winners, they held their grasped hands aloft as cheers rang throughout the theater.

My Advice To Trump On Releasing His Tax Forms: ‘Just Say No!’ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/my-advice-to-trump-on-releasing-his-tax-forms-just-say-no/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/my-advice-to-trump-on-releasing-his-tax-forms-just-say-no/#comments Fri, 26 Feb 2016 15:26:28 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=284822
Read More and Comment: My Advice To Trump On Releasing His Tax Forms: ‘Just Say No!’]]>
Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, there was a young political candidate who thought people would praise his transparency if he released 20 years’ worth of income tax returns, going all the way back to when he was first married. Alas, nobody gave him credit for his honesty or charitable giving. The only people who cared were his political opponents, who poured over his forms, hunting for any obscure item they could wrench out of context and turn into attack ads. The unsurprising twist: that young candidate was me. And the moral I learned was: “Never help somebody load a gun when it’s pointed at your own head. It’s not going to end well.”

Donald Trump is the latest candidate to be pressured to release his income tax forms. My Reaganesque advice to him: “Just say no!” Some have tried to interpret that as me favoring Trump, but I’ve given this same advice to candidates for years: Don’t release your personal tax forms. Trump, like every other candidate, is required by law to release detailed financial information. It must be signed under oath to verify that it’s accurate on penalty of perjury. Trump has done that, and it’s available for all to see.

Personally, I think that’s better than income tax returns. We all know how complicated tax forms are, particularly for someone like Trump. No average human can comprehend them; that’s why we have to pay experts to do our taxes. Do you really think some junior reporter at the Washington Post will understand Trump’s voluminous tax forms?  If he did, he’d be a seven-figure CPA.

I was disappointed to see Mitt Romney suggest that Trump might be hiding something in his tax returns. That’s the same kind of baseless innuendo that Harry Reid aimed at Romney in 2012. If Trump becomes the nominee, he’ll likely release his tax forms. But for now, he’s complied with federal disclosure laws, and his personal tax forms are nobody’s business but his own.

I know the argument: if he doesn’t release them, the media will beat him up. News flash: if he does release them, no matter what’s in them, the media will still find some reason to beat him up. I learned from bitter experience: when you’re a Republican, even if you’ve got nothing to hide, the media and your political opponents will find something anyway. Why make their job easier?

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio’s challenge on rival Donald Trump to explain Trump’s health care plan led to an “electric” moment that will be played over and over in the Republican presidential race, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer said Thursday night.

During Thursday night’s debate, Rubio, R-Fla., challenged Trump to provide details of his health care plan. Trump would not, or could not respond in depth to Rubio’s question.

“It was not exactly the subject you would have thought would spark this, but that’s when Rubio used ridicule in going after Trump on his so-called solution or replacement for Obamacare,” Krauthammer said. “And what he did is he tried to show … that there was really nothing there in the Trump proposal.”

“… The moment that was most remarkable, and obviously spontaneous, was when Rubio said, ‘Well, you’ve just repeated yourself within the five minutes.’ That I think is going to be the one that is going to be replayed.”

According to The Washington Post’s transcript of the debate, the exchange began as follows.

“What is your plan?,” Rubio said the Trump. “I understand the lines around the state, whatever that means. This is not a game where you draw maps.” After Trump said a few words, Rubio repeated, “What is your plan, Mr. Trump? … What is your plan on healthcare?

After both candidates talked at once, Trump mentioned Rubio’s “metdown” at a New Hampshire debate and then said, “I got to tell you, the biggest problem he’s got is he really doesn’t know about the lines. The biggest thing we’ve got, and the reason we’ve got no competition, is because we have lines around the state, and you have essentially…”

“So, you’re only thing is to get rid of the lines around the states,” Rubio said after more crosstalk. “What else is part of your healthcare plan…”

“You get rid of the lines, it brings in competition,” Trump replied after more crosstalk. “So, instead of having one insurance company taking care of New York, or Texas, you’ll have many. They’ll compete, and it’ll be a beautiful thing.”

“So, that’s the only part of the plan? Just the lines?” Rubio said.

“The nice part of the plan — you’ll have many different plans. You’ll have competition, you’ll have so many different plans, Trump said.

“Now he’s repeating himself,” Rubio said

“No, no, no,” replied Trump.

After a round of applause, Trump then said, “I watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago.”

“I just watched you repeat yourself five times five seconds ago,” Rubio replied.

The small town of Hesston, Kansas, was reeling Friday in the wake of a Thursday evening shooting spree that left three people dead and 14 wounded before a “hero” police officer ended the carnage by going in alone and killing the shooter.

Gunman Cedric Ford began firing at the passersby from his car at about 5 p.m. local time, not long after being served with what police called a “protection from abuse order.” He then drove to Excel Industries, which makes lawn care equipment, where Ford worked. He then began walking through the plant, firing in what appeared to be an indiscriminate fashion.

At about 5:06 police responded to the plant, said Harvey County Sherriff T. Walton. The first officer to arrive on the scene was alone. He single-handedly took down the shooter, Walton said.

“Even though he took fire, he went inside of that place and saved multiple, multiple lives,” Walton said, estimating 150 people were in the plant at the time. “(He’s) a hero, as far as I’m concerned.”

Walton did not identify the officer Thursday, but said he would do so Friday.

“Everybody says it can’t happen here,” Walton said. Hesston is a town of 3,700 people about 35 miles from Wichita. “And here we are. It happened here.”

Matt Jarrell, a painter at Excel, said the day began like any other as he and Ford — a long-time co-worker and friend — talked about Ford’s new truck.

“He was a mellow guy,” Jarrell said. “He was somebody I could talk to about anything.”

At break time, Jarrell went outside. Ford pulled up.

“He just parked and then opened up the door, hopped out with the gun on, strapped-up and everything,” Jarrell said.

Witnesses said Ford yelled “hey” at a bystander nearby and then shot that person.

“I witnessed him shoot the shots. I saw the shell casings come out of the assault rifle,” Jarrell said. “I mean, that vivid. I can still see it.”

I took off running,” said Martin Espinoza, who said Ford pointed a gun at him, but the gun was empty. While Ford grabbed a different gun, Espinoza fled.

“He came outside after a few people, shot outside a few times, shot at the officers coming onto the scene at the moment and then reloaded in front of the company,” Espinoza said. “After he reloaded he went inside the lobby in front of the building and that is the last I seen him.”

“We heard a pop, pop, and we thought it was just metal falling on the ground, and then the doors opened, people started screaming, coming out,” said a witness identified as Dylan. “We really didn’t know what was going on.”

“This is just a horrible incident that’s happened here,” Walton said. “It’s going to be a lot of sad people before this is all over.”

Ford, who reportedly had a criminal history that included burglary, grand theft, prowling and fleeing from police, had recently posted pictures on himself on Facebook with several weapons.

Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., came out swinging in Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate.

It was a difference in style and substance noted by members of a Texas focus group who overwhelmingly told Republican pollster Frank Luntz that Rubio was the debate’s winner.

Luntz released a breakdown of the 23 members of the group. Rubio was named the winner by 16 members; Donald Trump, 4; Ohio Gov. John Kasich, 2; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, 1. No one named Ben Carson, who at one point asked one of the candidates to attack him so he could get in on the action.

“He zinged [Donald] Trump several times,” one person said.

Rubio was called “knowledgeable about the issues” and “charming.”

“He didn’t seem like a mechanical robot, like he usually does when he comes on,” one participant said. “This time he was more personable, you know it was snap snap snap, it wasn’t something he memorized. It didn’t appear that way.”

Rubio started early, turning the first question he received on immigration away from the treacherous territory of past immigration bills he authored into an attack on Trump.

“You’re the only person on this stage that’s ever been fined for hiring people to work on your project illegally,” Rubio said, referring to the illegal use of Polish workers on past construction projects that were part of one of Trump’s enterprises.

Rubio also attacked Trump for having a “fake school,” referring to lawsuits aimed at Trump University alleging fraud and deception and said was a child of privilege.

Trump defended himself and at one point dismissively waved off Rubio’s comments, saying the case Rubio was referring to happened 38 years before. “I guess there’s a statute of limitations on lies,” Rubio retorted.

 

“If he hadn’t inherited $200 million, you know where Donald Trump would be right now? Selling watches in Manhattan,” Rubio said.

About half way through the final Republican debate, an entertaining moment occurred when Marco Rubio took the offensive against Trump’s healthcare proposal.

Pressing Donald to explain his healthcare proposal, Rubio asked, “What is your plan [Donald], I understand the lines around the states, whatever that means, this is not a game where you draw maps around, what is your plan?”

“You know I watched him melt down two weeks ago with Chris Christie, I gotta tell ya, the biggest problem he’s got is he doesn’t know about the lines … the reason we have no competition is because we have lines around the state,” said Trump.

“So you’re only thing is to get rid of the lines around the states, what else is part of your plan? I’ll give him time of mine so he can tell us his plan,” said Rubio.

“When you get rid of the lines it brings in competition, you’ll have many, they’ll compete, and it’ll be a beautiful thing,” responded Trump.

But Rubio continued to push Trump for something specific and more detailed than just removing the lines. “You’ll have competition, you’ll have so many different plans,” explained Trump.

In a surprising moment of humor Marco said with a grin, “but now he’s repeating himself,” clearly referencing his own blunder at the previous debate.

“No, no, I don’t repeat myself,” Trump said, looking irritated. “Here’s the guy who repeats himself,” Trump exclaimed, pointing at Rubio.

“You don’t repeat yourself?” Rubio asked now visibly laughing. “You repeat yourself everyday.”

“Talking about repeating, I watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago,” responded Trump.

“And I saw you repeat yourself five times five seconds ago,” said Rubio. “I see him repeat himself every night, he says five things. Everyone is dumb, gonna make America great again, we’re gonna win win win, he’s winning in the polls, and the lines around the state,” Marco finished to a thundering applause from the crowd.

The same back and forth continued a little longer, but if the crowd’s reaction was any indication, it seems as if Rubio scored some points against Trump this time around.

Following the initial debate on immigration, Trump and Cruz found themselves going at it again, this time over who would do better in Washington.

“I’ve had an amazing relationship with politicians, both Democrat and Republican, because I was a businessman … I got along with everybody. You get along with nobody,” Trump said, pointing at Cruz.

Trump continued, “you don’t have one Republican, you don’t have one Republican senator and you work with them every day of your life … but you don’t have one Republican senator backing you, not one, you don’t have the endorsement of one Republican senator and you work with these people, you should be ashamed of yourself.”

Cruz didn’t take this lying down and hit back at Trump hard. “You know I actually think Donald is right, he is promising if he’s elected he will go and cut deals in Washington. And he’s right, he has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats.”

But it didn’t stop there for Cruz, “Anyone who really cared about illegal immigration wouldn’t be hiring illegal immigrants. Anyone who really cared about illegal immigration wouldn’t be funding Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, wouldn’t be funding the Gang of Eight.”

“And you know, he is right, when you stand up to Washington, when you honor the promise you have made to the men and women who elected you and say enough with the corruption, enough with the cronyism, lets actually stand for the working men and women of this country, Washington doesn’t like it. And Donald, if you wanna be liked in Washington, that’s not a good attribute for a president,” said Cruz.

Donald had the final word, mocking Ted Cruz as “Robin Hood” who was going to stand against corruption while also taking loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank.

“This is Robin Hood, he talks about corruption, on his financial disclosure form he didn’t even put that he’s borrowed money from Citibank and Goldman Sachs … he just left it off and now he’s going to protect the people from the big bad banks,” Trump exclaimed.

While it is true that Cruz has taken loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank, he has addressed these allegations in the past, claiming the loans were disclosed through multiple sources.

Read More and Comment: GOP Candidates Debate Amnesty]]>
In the first heated segment of the night, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz went at it over the topic of illegal immigration, with each candidate claiming they were the strongest opponents of amnesty.

The initial question – leveled at Trump – asked if he supported amnesty due to his claims that the “good ones [illegals]” will come back under his plan.

“We have at least 11 million people in this country that came in illegally. They will go out, they will come back, some will come back, the best, through a process … it may not be a very quick process, but I think that’s very fair and very fine,” said Trump.

Cruz responded to this by citing the dramatic benefits the state of Arizona has seen since they adopted tough laws on illegal immigrants, which has caused illegals to flee the state.

“The dollars they [Arizona] are spending on welfare, on prison, on education, all of those have dropped by hundreds of millions of dollars, and the Americans, and for that matter the legal immigrants who are in Arizona, are seeing unemployment drop, are seeings wages rise, that’s who we should be fighting for,” said Cruz.

Most importantly, Cruz voiced his opinion that it would be unfair to reward any lawlessness on behalf of illegal immigrants, regardless of whether they are the best. “I think it is a mistake to forgive those who break law, to allow them to become U.S. citizens, and that’s why I’ve led the fight against granting citizenship to those here illegally,” Cruz said.

Trump responded to this by citing his recent endorsement by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, who is largely regarded as “America’s toughest sheriff.”

“Well, I’m very glad that Ted mentioned Arizona, because probably the toughest man on borders is Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and two days ago, he totally endorsed me, so thank you,” Trump responded.

Not to miss an opportunity to jab both his top opponents, Marco Rubio claimed that Cruz was not always tough on immigration, but more importantly that Donald Trump has made a practice of hiring and rewarding illegal immigrants.

“In 2011, he [Cruz] talked about a pathway to citizenship. In 2012, Donald criticized Mitt Romney, saying Mitt lost his election because of self deportation, and so even today we have a report that Donald, you’ve hired a significant number of people from other countries to take jobs that Americans could have filled,:” Rubio said. He continued, “My mom was a maid at a hotel, and instead of hiring an American like her you’ve brought in over a thousand people from all over the world to fill those jobs instead. So I think this is an important issue.”

Trump rebuffed these accusations by claiming the times he hired illegals were during the height of the season in Miami when he couldn’t find Americans to take the part time, low income positions.

Marco countered this by citing that Donald has even been fined for hiring illegal workers, to which Trump rebuttled, “I’m the only one on the stage who has hired people!”

While Donald Trump’s rise to political prominence in the GOP might baffle some, at least one individual was predicting this phenomenon as far back as 2008.

On the Adam Carolla Show, comedian and host Carolla made this prediction while discussing the billionaire and poking fun at some aspects of his private life.

“He’s going to be president in eight years, you understand that everybody? You understand Donald Trump is going to be president? He will be president one day, it will be in our lifetime,” said Carolla.

Asked whether Trump would still be with his current wife Melania, Carolla jokingly responded, “No, no, no, no, because she will have seen her 38th birthday. There will be uh … I think they’re harvesting Eva Gabor’s eggs right now as we speak to make a new classy chick from ‘Classilvania’ for Trump to marry as his fifth wife.”

The comedian continued his predictions with a much more facetious tone, seeming to imitate Trump’s brash and sometimes simple way of speaking.

In regards to his children, Carolla noted that they would most likely be members of his cabinet. “The ‘Secretary of Class,’ that’s what you’ll be, Ivanka. Ivanka, you will be the ‘Secretary of Does Not Suck and Class.’”

Referring to Trump’s son, Carolla suggested he might be nominated “Chancellor in Charge of Losers,” where he would watch over all the “losers” in America to make them winners.

“[The son] he’s terrific. That’s why I’ll make him the ‘Chancellor in Charge of Losers.’ He will have to look over the losers as a terrific child.”

While some people mind find this sort of thing offensive, it is important to note that Adam Carolla is a comedian and was most likely making these jokes in good fun.

Storms, which stretched from the south to the northeast, created dangerous tornadoes, leaving power outages and destruction in their path.

This photo, posted by WDBJ, shows three crosses in Evergreen, Va., that withstood the devastation.

Among all the devastation in Evergreen, these crosses still stand.

Posted by WDBJ7 on Thursday, February 25, 2016

According to a report from CNBC, the storms consisted of at least 60 tornadoes and were responsible for the deaths of at least eight people.

CNBC also reported that over 238,000 homes from Virginia to Maine are without electricity.

This photo was posted by CNBC, showing people trying to clean up after the tornadoes.

In addition to the severe destruction of property, the storms also affected air travel. According to FlightAware, there were nearly 300 flight cancellations nationwide, with approximately 90 of them occurring at LaGuardia Airport in New York.

People took to social media to post photos of the damage and offer prayers and encouragement.

The Weather Channel reported that in Virginia, there were over 35,000 homes without electricity.

Timothy Williams was in the car with a friend when the tornado struck. Williams said, “It picked the car right off the ground and put it right back on the ground.” Fortunately, he and his friend were uninjured.

Bristol Palin’s first out-of-wedlock child caused some controversy during her mother’s 2008 vice-presidential bid. Since then, the younger Palin has been embroiled in a contentious custody battle with her son’s father, Levi Johnston.

According to an update recently posted to — and subsequently deleted from — Johnston’s Facebook profile, the prolonged legal drama has finally come to an end. He referenced the “seven years” and “around $100,000” he has spent in an effort to join his former partner in “successfully co-parenting” 7-year-old Tripp Johnston.

The social media post continued with a message to other fathers in a similar situation.

“I want to say that even though fathers in this country don’t usually have the upper hand in court,” Johnston wrote, “I encourage every father to never give up on fighting to keep their kids in their life. It’s always worth it.”

While he affirmed that life is “really looking up” from his perspective, Bristol Palin apparently took exception to her ex-fiance’s side of the story.

“Always be careful of what you hear about a woman,” she wrote on Instagram. “Rumours [sic] either come from a man that can’t have her or a woman who can’t compete with her.”

In a later post, she included a photo of herself, her son, and a daughter from another relationship.

“These babies are my world,” she wrote in the photo’s caption, “and I will always be doing what is best for them.”

Attempting to explain the custody situation as the best thing for her family, Palin insisted there were no losers in this custody battle.

“Every child deserves two loving parents,” she said, “so I will continue to encourage that no matter what. I have never, and will never, keep them from having a positive relationship with their fathers.”

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck said on his program Thursday that one thing in particular from Donald Trump’s victory speech in Nevada on Tuesday night caught his attention.

The host played a clip from the speech in which Trump said, “You know, I get greedy. I want money, money. Now, I’m going to — I’ll tell you what we’re going to do, right? We get greedy, right? Now we’re going to get greedy for the United States. We’re going to grab and grab and grab,” which drew applause from the audience. 

Beck’s co-host Stu Burguiere chimed in, saying Trump’s comments are “at odds with what he’s done his entire career,” suggesting the billionaire has been “greedy for himself and abused the United States in the process,” The Blaze reported

“But you missed the correction that he made mid-course. He said, ‘I get greedy. And you know I — you know what we’re going to do,’” Beck said. “He said, ‘You know what I — you know what we’re going to do.’”

The radioman went on to observe that he does not want to be “part of a nation that grabs and grabs and grabs.” Rather, he offered the observation made by the French political philosopher Alex De Tocqueville, who famously said, “America is great, because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” 

“Since when has greed and ‘grab and grab and grab’ been good?” asked Beck. “That’s not good.”

Perhaps Beck, who has endorsed Trump’s GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz, would be more in agreement with what the billionaire candidate said Wednesday night at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va.

Before sitting down for an interview with university chancellor and Christian Broadcasting Network CEO Pat Robertson, Trump addressed the crowd saying wealth is not what makes people happy.

“I know the most successful people in the world. I deal with them all the time. I know them in many cases very well,” the businessman said. “These are not the happiest people, generally. A couple happy, not too many. Because no matter how successful, they all want more, more, more. It’s never satisfying.”

“I get a little bit guilty of that also,” Trump added. “But the fact is the happiest people I know are the people with great families, that love their families, and when their families love them,” which drew strong applause from the audience.

Read More and Comment: You Want To Give The FBI The Right To Kill You AND Crack Your iPhone?]]>
When I was growing up, the FBI was personified by Efrem Zimbalist Jr., and the Highway Patrol by Broderick Crawford.

The G Men and the State Troopers were there to keep us safe from bank robbers and people who would commit carnage on our nation’s highways.

And no little boy in the 50s and 60s would ever think anything different.

We trusted them, and we believed they were the good guys because, for the most part, they were.

They have lost that luster in many cases, and much of what has happened is reflected in the FBI’s ongoing attempt to force Apple to write an entirely new piece of software to hack one of its iPhones, ostensibly to “help” them in the investigation of a now dead terrorist.

It all gets down to who you trust, and frankly, it is an interesting juxtaposition to see Donald Trump complaining about Apple’s actions in this case when his candidacy has been boosted and supported by many of the people who no longer trust the Federal Government to do the right thing. And, as smart as I believe Trump is, he’s being badly misinformed in this case.

Back when I was growing up, it took some research if you wanted to commit a federal crime. There were maybe a few thousand violations of the law which would possibly qualify for the FBI’s attention. Robbing a federally insured bank was a mainstay. So was kidnapping across state lines.

Today, because some clown in Congress is always crying, “There ought to be a law!” there are nearly 5,000 acts for which the FBI can investigate and arrest you. If you mistakenly import wood from a country on Barack Obama’s list, as did the Gibson Guitar Company, you can be a target as they were.

So, before we get all high and mighty about Apple’s “duty” to assist the FBI, let’s put this question in a different form.

Sure, we want to make the world safe from terrorism.

But what if the FBI was—two years after the fact—investigating Cliven Bundy and his guests who made the Bureau of Land Management stand down in 2014? And what if they wanted to hack THEIR iPhones to get evidence against them? (Was the FBI carrying Harry Reid’s water there?)

Or…what if you told your bank a fib on your last Mastercard application and that application only existed and was encrypted in YOUR iPhone? (Yes, you can go to prison for that.)

In point of fact, the FBI can lie to you all day long with no legal consequence; but if you lie to them, you can go to prison. That’s the law. Ask Scooter Libby.

Now do you see the problem?

And that’s only one of a number of problems.

The second problem here is that what this little Federal Magistrate in California has ordered Apple to do is to write a piece of software which doesn’t exist.

Writing software is like writing this column. Could that Magistrate order me to write a column? I think not.

The third problem is that once that software is written, the genie is out of the bottle.

Which returns us to the issue of who do you trust.

This is, after all, the same FBI which orchestrated the killing of one Lavoy Finicum recently in Oregon by the Oregon Highway Patrol. He was killed because he did not comply with the “commands” of law enforcement.

These folks are not Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and Broderick Crawford. Do you really want to give them the right to shoot you dead for not obeying their “commands” AND the right to peer into your most private information which you carry with you every day?

Truth be told, I carry an aging iPhone 5, and I had not password-protected it.

Until I discovered that the FBI couldn’t crack Apple’s encryption software.

Now, I’m much more impressed with my iPhone than I used to be..

But, if Apple caves, I’ll find a new phone which is manufactured by a company which won’t.

Read More and Comment: Exposed: Obama Admin Caught Making Illegal Move That Makes ObamaCare Look Even Worse]]>
The Obama administration has been caught — once again — seeking to circumvent the law related to Obamacare by diverting billions in funds intended for the U.S. Treasury to cover private insurance companies’ losses.

In 2014, Sen. Marco Rubio inserted language into the omnibus spending bill which specifically barred the Department of Health and Human Services from dipping into the general funds of the Treasury to bailout failing insurance companies, the Washington Post reported.

Marc Thiessen, writing for the Post, observed that the provision is “quietly killing” Obamacare, while the New York Times headlined in December, “Marco Rubio Quietly Undermines Affordable Care Act.” The Hill called the provision, “the biggest blow in the GOP’s five-year war against Obamacare.”

Both the Post and the Times pointed out that private insurers have been taking heavy losses participating in the healthcare exchanges, and to entice them to stay, the Obama administration was subsidizing the companies with taxpayer dollars.

According to the Times report, in 2014 “insurers lost $2.9 billion more than expected on Obamacare…Thanks to Rubio’s provision, the administration was allowed to pay only 13 cents of every dollar insurers requested. Without the taxpayer bailouts, more than half of the Obamacare insurance cooperatives created under the law failed.”

Several insurers have pulled out of the remaining exchanges. United Healthcare and Aetna, two of the nation’s largest providers, have indicated they are considering pulling out of Obamacare altogether, due to the billions in losses they have sustained.  

As a means of mitigating the disastrous financial impact of the law on insurers, the Obama administration announced earlier this month it will hand out $7.7 billion to companies from fees collected through the ACA. The only problem is $2 billion of that money is supposed to go the Treasury’s general funds.

Doug Badger, a senior fellow with the Galen Institute, writes the “reinsurance fee” is $107 for every man, woman and child with a private health plan, which adds up to billions in collections each year.

“The law states a fixed share ‘shall be deposited into the general fund of the Treasury of the United States and may not be used’ to offset insurance companies’ losses. But the administration gave all of it to the insurance companies last year, and got away with that heist. So they’re trying it again,” Betsy McCaughey wrote in Investors Business Daily.

According to Badger, the amount the Treasury is supposed to receive — but won’t because the Obama administration has directed it be paid to private insurers — is $3.5 billion over the two years.

The Daily Signal reported Thursday that the House Energy and Commerce Committee is investigating the multi-billion dollar transfer of taxpayer money.

“[Earlier this month], the administration announced that they would be using billions of taxpayer dollars to make payments to insurance companies under the Obamacare reinsurance program,” Rep. Joe Pitts, R-Penn., a member of the committee said Wednesday during a hearing with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell. “The announcement that the administration made represents an illegal wealth transfer from hardworking taxpayers to insurers.” 

The Ways and Means Committee has also taken up the issue. Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas; Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Peter Roskam, R-Ill.; and Subcommittee on Health Chairman Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio, asked Burwell for documents related to the reinsurance program in a letter sent Feb. 9.

“It appears that the administration has illegally diverted funds from the U.S. Treasury to fund the transitional reinsurance program established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” they wrote. “Not only is this diversion inconsistent with past policies promulgated by the administration but it is incompatible with clear congressional instructions contained within the ACA. We ask that HHS immediately submit to the Treasury all diverted funds.”

The Obama administration’s diversion of funds is just the latest example of changing provisions of ACA without congressional approval. Other instances included delaying implementation of the employer mandate twice, delaying the individual mandate for two years, and not creating a means to adequately verify whether those signing up were actually eligible for health care subsidies.

The hosts of ABC’s The View discussed the latest Donald Trump news this week, specifically dissecting the results of a controversial recent poll.

Last month, YouGov and The Economist conducted the survey, finding that 2 in 10 of the Republican presidential front-runner’s supporters believe slavery should not have ended in the U.S.

Whoopi Goldberg asserted the news is a direct result of Trump’s outreach to “poorly educated” voters.

“Maybe it was tricky,” she said of the wording used in the poll, “… but it doesn’t change the fact that these seem to be going along with the kind of rhetoric that we have heard about black people, immigrants.”

New Poll on Trump Supporters and Slavery“It’s not ignorance, it’s racist,” says Joy Behar in response to the new poll on Donald J. Trump supporters and slavery.

Posted by The View on Thursday, February 25, 2016

Candace Cameron Bure said the results are baffling, insisting that she was not defending Trump or his acolytes when arguing that some of the respondents were likely confused by the question.

“I want you to know from my opinion, I can’t wrap my mind around this,” Bure said. “I can’t believe that there are people that would still think that that’s OK.”

After reiterating that she could not comprehend the ostensibly pro-slavery responses, Bure concluded, “I think it was a tricky poll. I think people didn’t really understand what they were being asked.”

Goldberg then engaged Joy Behar in a debate over whether the poll identified racism or ignorance among the 20 percent who favored slavery.

“They generally run hand in hand,” Goldberg said. “You can be very smart and still be ignorant.”

Video Transcript:

SEN. MARK KIRK: Let me just ask one question. I want to show you a picture of Ibrahim al Qosi who was recently released by the administration to the Sudanese and he appeared on some al-Qaeda videos recruiting people for [al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula]. Now that he’s out, I would hope we would end the policy of issuing terrorists to terrorist nations, and where they can get out.

JOHN KERRY: Well, senator, he’s not supposed to be doing that. And there are consequences for that, and there will be.

KIRK: So as they said in Team America: World Police, you’re going to send them a very angry letter?

KERRY: Uh, no we do more than that.

HANS BLIX: Let me see your whole palace, or else.

KIM JONG II: Or else what?

BLIX: Or else we will be very, very angry with you. And we will write you a letter telling you how angry we are.

Just one day before, President Obama criticized the role Guantanamo Bay plays in national security and touted the rigorous steps to safety close it.

OBAMA: For many years it’s been clear that the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay does not advance our national security. It undermines it. It’s counterproductive to our fight against terrorists because they use it as propaganda in their efforts to recruit. Since I took office, we’ve so far transferred 147 more. Each under new significant restrictions to keep them from returning to the battlefield.

Significant restrictions, huh? What does Obama have to say about that terrorist and the many more who have returned to battle?

As gun control remains a major issue of contention among many Americans, business owners have often taken sides in the debate. In some cases, employees have intentionally violated no-gun policies in the interest of their own safety, ultimately being able to use the weapon to fend off attackers.

Other entrepreneurs, however, have taken a much different stance. One such example is Lance Toland, owner of an Atlanta-based insurance company.

“We made a conscious decision in our firm to protect ourselves,” he said.

Toland recently announced the early results of a new policy requiring his employees to obtain a concealed-carry weapons permit. Though his largely female staff is encouraged to bring their firearms to work, it is not a requirement. In any case, everyone in his employ will receive a powerful pistol upon completing the applicable training course.

When he learned a longtime employee — who was also a highly skilled firearms instructor — would be leaving the company, he said it created a “void” that his new pro-gun policy will help fill.

“With the presentation of their license, they all got a 410 Judge pistol,” Toland said of his current staff.

In a recent Fox News Channel interview, Toland explained that he became serious about protecting his employees and clients after another local insurance company was robbed.

“You can’t rely on the police to be there,” he reasoned. “They’re going to be there eventually, but they’re not going to be there when the perpetrator comes.”

Not only is his staff excited, he said many clients “are high-fiving when they hear this” and “think it’s the best thing for a company to mandate gun ownership and be responsible.”

Thursday night’s Republican debate may prove crucial for Sen. Marco Rubio.

This will be the last debate before Super Tuesday primaries and his final opportunity to pull supporters away from front-runner Donald Trump.

According to an article by Politico’s Alex Isenstadt, Rubio will implement a new strategy in an effort to diminish Trump’s lead.

Instead of attacking Trump, he plans to attack Ted Cruz.

“Going after Trump would accomplish little because the businessman’s supporters are deeply committed and unlikely to swing Rubio’s way,” Isenstadt writes. “Inciting a confrontation with Trump onstage would create drama but wouldn’t help the senator gain voters, something he badly needs as he looks for his first primary win.”

Isenstadt said the Rubio campaign believes attacking Cruz is its best bet for attracting more voters. “They think the Texas senator’s voters are less locked in and could swing Rubio’s way should Cruz fade. The only way to dislodge Trump, Rubio’s advisers say, is to turn it into a two-man race — meaning that they first need to get Cruz out of the way.”

During the previous debates, the rhetoric between Rubio and Trump has not been aggressive. But if Trump decides to challenge Rubio, then the senator’s campaign had better be ready to respond to the challenge.

That’s particularly important in light of Rubio’s disasterous debate performance prior to the New Hampshire primary.

But Rubio’s campaign advisers believe the only way to lessen Trump’s lead is to eliminate the remaining candidates and create a two-man race between Trump and Rubio.

Should this strategy have the intended results, then Rubio would feel free to launch his attack on Trump.

Of course, there is always the chance Rubio’s strategy will backfire. But with Super Tuesday being so close, Rubio may not have any other choice.

Progressive Totalitarianism: Prescription For A Slow Death For America http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/progressive-totalitarianism-prescription-for-a-slow-death-for-america/ http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/progressive-totalitarianism-prescription-for-a-slow-death-for-america/#comments Thu, 25 Feb 2016 21:04:08 +0000 http://www.westernjournalism.com/?p=284551
Read More and Comment: Progressive Totalitarianism: Prescription For A Slow Death For America]]>
In his book The Snapping of the American Mind, David Kupelian asks the painful question that millions of Americans like myself have pondered for years and will ponder for some time to come as America slowly rips itself apart.

Kupelian writes, “How could it be that hundreds of thousands of Americans fought and bled – and many died – on foreign shores to contain an evil and metas tasizing ideology variously called communism, Marxism, socialism, collectivism, or statism, and yet now, just a few years later, we would gaze up at the pinnacle of power in our own country and behold leaders in thrall to essentially the same core ideology we fought and died to protect strangers from?”

The answer can be found within the culture itself and more specifically within America’s youth who have seemingly embraced the concept of socialism with little to no understanding of what it even is. Yet, like frogs slowly boiling to death in the cesspools that have become our college campuses, our nation’s youth collectively embrace the ideology that will destroy them while demanding they be “protected” from opinions that run contrary to their beliefs.

For instance, after outspoken conservative and feminist critic Milo Yiannopoulos gave a speech at Rutgers University, the college responded in a way that has become typical in the cesspools that are our academia. Writing in the Rutgers campus newspaper The Daily TargumNoa Halff notes:

Students and faculty gathered in the Paul Robeson Cultural Center on Busch campus to generate dialogue about Yiannopoulos’s visit and the protest that occurred during his lecture. A variety of different organizations and departments were present to listen, answer questions and show support.

Representatives from the Rutgers University Police Department, the Office of Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance, Counseling, Alcohol and other Drug Assistance Program and Psychiatric Services and the Bias Prevention and Education Committee were present. Members from the Black Student Union, the Asian American Cultural Center, Center for Latino Arts and Culture, College Student Affairs and many more were also in attendance.

In short, this official response to a conservative speaker from what was once one of America’s most prestigious universities is a damning indictment of a generation that has been primed for totalitarianism. The fact this isn’t an isolated example is bad. What’s worse is these very same college students have become champions of government-regulated speech so long as the speech being regulated emanates from the right.

This is happening while, at the same time, students are actively discouraged from thinking for themselves. It’s a testament to how successful the left has been in capturing our nation,s schools that analytical thinking, once the basis of our education system, is now virtually gone.

It’s a symptom of progressivism to see the supposed “college educated” of today have become fierce proponents for government-regulated speech. But progressivism itself is not the underlying root cause. The cause itself can be found in the ideology known as liberalism, which has been carried to its logical and practical extreme — totalitarianism.

As James Burnham explained in his 1964 classic Suicide of the West, “Liberalism has always operated most naturally as a tendency of opposition to the prevailing order, to the status quo, the ancien régime, the Establishment in general or in its several parts.” Liberalism, continues Burnham, “has always stressed change, reform, the break with encrusted habit whether in the form of old ideas, old customs or old institutions. Thus liberalism has been and continues to be primarily negative in its impact on society.”

What is different today is that liberalism now controls all the powerful institutions of culture — from the media to education and everything in between — while at the same time it faces literally no opposition. The left controls the culture and given that political issues are often decided at the cultural level before they even reach the political realm, the opposition is almost always rendered defenseless.

Or in the case of college campuses, the opposition isn’t even permitted to make its case.

It is outright totalitarianism that is taking place today within American society, from the silencing of conservatives on college campuses to forcing Christian business owners to pay excessive fines and face prison sentences for holding true to their beliefs in traditional marriage. The nation has fractured into two separate Americas that continue to drift further and further apart, with half the nation seemingly convinced their rights stem from the government while the other from God.

The former seeks not only to control the latter, but to see to it that the latter is utterly destroyed. To accomplish this, liberalism functions as all totalitarian movements have functioned in the past by subjecting individuals to unbearable stress, conflict and crisis until each is broken.

Whether the means to do so are accomplished financially, spiritually, culturally, or psychologically matters little, as it always justifies the end. The end, of course, being the destruction of the will of each and every American so that liberalism can remake the individual from the ashes in which it has destroyed them.

Liberalism wants you to snap. It wants to challenge your sanity and destroy your belief system so that it can remold you in its image of dependency. First and foremost though, it must extinguish those institutions in which we hold dear. It is why, since his first day in office, Barack Obama has relentlessly attacked the cultural, moral and religious institutions that those of us on the right hold dear.

Yet Obama himself is not solely to blame, for he represents the logical extreme of liberalism. He is a symptom of the progressive creation and his rise to the pinnacle of power in this nation represented a turning point for the worse as the government has been infused with an ideology of totalitarianism. Take a look at any government agency functioning today and you’d be hard pressed to find just one that isn’t completely politicized into attacking the ideological opponents of progressivism.

In turn, you can do the same exact thing with our culture itself and you’ll find the same results. Wherever the progressives are in power, from the government to the culture to the academia and the media, the hatred of Western values dominates.

Popular discourse today sees the West in general as being “guilty of genocidal crimes against civilization,” for Western values seen through the lens of liberalism represents the “greatest repository of racism, sexism, xenophobia, antisemitism, fascism, and narcissism.” As the “Father of the New Left” Herbert Marcuse so eloquently put it, “American society is oppressive, evil and undeserving of loyalty.”

With this notion in mind, liberalism places a new emphasis on liberating all men and women from the “evil repression” and “tyrannical values” Western civilization was built upon. To bring this about, progressives have designed numerous strategies to discredit and smear the values that had forged and sustained the West for the past 2,000 years.

“Critical Theory,” writes Nelson Hultberg in Cultural Marxism: The Corruption of America, “was the first and most important of these strategies” as it was not only critical to discrediting capitalism but also social conditions of contemporary society and existing social institutions. Hultberg explains, “Under its auspices, every tradition of Western life was to be redefined as ‘prejudiced’ and ‘perverse.’ And these redefinitions were to be instilled into the social stream via devastating scholarly criticisms of all values such as family, marriage, property, individualism, patriotism, faith in God etc.”

Critical Theory precisely defines the tactics used by progressives today as they attack Christianity, capitalism, family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, loyalty and patriotism. It is this routine and consistent attack on any and all foundations of our society in which liberalism has destroyed our culture and advanced its totalitarian agenda.

The left, no matter what they call themself today, breeds the ideology the totalitarianism as every single proposed and forced through “reform” serves to reduce human personality to its most primitive levels and extinguish the highest, most complex and “God-like” aspects of human individuality. Even equality itself, while serving as a powerful appeal to the masses with its great promises of “each according to his need,” turns out to signify not equality of rights, of opportunities, and of external conditions, but equality of complete uniformity in thought and condition.

The total implementation of the principles espoused by liberalism deprives human life of individuality and simultaneously deprives life of its meaning and attraction. America isn’t at this point yet, but it is coming as reflected in a generation that is at best negligent, and at worst complicit in the march towards totalitarianism.

How do I know for certain this is where we are headed? Because what I’ve been calling progressive totalitarianism is what was once called socialism. And following the basic tendency of socialism, liberalism is hostile toward human personality not only as a category, but ultimately to its very existence. In the words of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, “Socialism of any type and shade leads to a total destruction of the human spirit and to a leveling of mankind into death.”

Socialism masquerading as progressivism is really totalitarianism that will inevitably lead to the total destruction of the American spirit and to a leveling of America into death.

Some have speculated that the Republican presidential candidates could work out a deal, whereby three candidates would bow out and allow one of the two front-runners to take on Donald Trump head to head. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said emphatically, that a deal like that will never happen.

Rubio addressed possibilities of a consolidation of presidential candidates with Fox News’ Fox and Friends Wednesday. Rubio said, “First of all, both Ted and I are both running vibrant national campaigns, so the voters are going to have to provide the consolidation.  It’s not going to be a deal between candidates.  And that just never happens, and it isn’t going to happen now.”

On the same day in another interview with CBS This Morning, host Charlie Rose asked Rubio, “Is it simply too little too late to stop Donald Trump, especially if he does well on…Super Tuesday?” Rubio answered, “It’s important to take a deep breath here…It’s not based on how many states you win.  It’s based on how many delegates you pick up.” Rubio further added there are, “plenty of states out there that, in the winner-take-all category, that if you win them, you more than catch up.” Rubio did admit the votes against Trump are “spread out” among four other candidates, which has allowed for Trump’s previous successes.

“There’s a significant number of Republicans who do not want Donald Trump to be their nominee,” Rubio stated. Co-host Gayle King asked Rubio, “At what state do you think you’re going to be the one to Trump Donald Trump?” Rubio confidently predicted, “We’ll win in Florida now that Gov. Bush is no longer in the race,” even though the hosts reminded him he is currently trailing in FL polls.

“We feel great about the work we’re putting in and what it’s going to lead to when this process plays out,” Rubio said. Rubio also implied Bush would endorse him but commented, “we haven’t discussed an endorsement.”

If the remaining candidates of Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Ben Carson remain in the race, the outcome will likely guarantee a Trump nomination. It is unclear, however, if the outliers were to drop out, whether Rubio or Cruz would even be able to take on Trump for the nomination given Trump’s popularity and landslide victories in NH, SC, and NV.  Super Tuesday will, more likely than not, lead a few of the field of five to drop out and give the frontrunners a better chance at beating Trump.
