FBI’s Comey is complicit in Clinton

email scandal

Should James B. Comey, Jr. continue as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Is he professionally compromised? Does Mr. Comey continue to enjoy the “special trust and confidence” of the American people, the rank-and-file of the FBI, and the thousands of government employees holding security clearances and access to classified information?

On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, Mr. Comey conducted a fifteen-minute press briefing detailing the elements of the crime of mishandling national defense information, specifically Title 18 U.S.C. §793(f) and the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of an outlaw email server.

Comey provided the following detailed examples of how Mrs. Clinton violated the law: “110 e-mails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information.”

More Job-Killing Rules from EPA

More Job-Killing Rules from EPA

Paul Driessen |Posted: Jun 11, 2016 12:01 AM

Having already done yeoman’s work stifling economic growth and job creation, President Obama and his Environmental Protection Agency are doubling down again.

The United States created a measly 38,000 new jobs in May: one for every 8,000 Americans. Its labor force participation rate is a horrid 63% – meaning 93 million Americans are not working, while 6.4 million more are trying to feed their families on involuntary part-time positions and a fraction of their previous salaries. Manufacturing lost another 20,000 jobs in May, as the economy grew at an almost stagnant 0.8% the first quarter of 2016. Middle class family incomes and net worth continue to slide.

Meanwhile, well-paid federal bureaucrats increasingly regulate our lives, hand down fines and jail terms for some 5,000 federal crimes and 300,000 criminal offenses, and inflict $1.9 trillion in annual regulatory compliance costs on families and businesses, on top of $1.8 trillion in taxes.

House Bill Would Strengthen Welfare Work Requirement

House Bill Would Strengthen

Welfare Work Requirement

Faith Vander Voort / May 27, 2016

Rep. Jim Jordan introduced a bill Thursday that would reform the Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

“Welfare programs are meant to be a temporary safety net, but they have become a permanent way of life for millions of Americans,” Jordan, R-Ohio, said in a statement. “Instead of giving impoverished families and individuals a helping hand, the current system penalizes positive steps toward self-sufficiency.”

According to a press release from Jordan’s office, H.R. 5360, the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, is based on Maine’s successful reforms and the welfare reforms of 1996.

Who Owns Nevada’s Lands? (May 25, 2016)

During the regular meeting on May 25, 2016, Mike Little gave a presentation about the history of Nevada’s lands.  He discussed the progression of the State, from a collection of Utah counties, to a territory, and eventually statehood.  He showed how the Eastern most portion of the state was granted to Nevada by an act of Congress, as was the southern tip of Nevada, containing present-day Clark County and more than 50% of the State’s population.  This area was granted to Nevada by an Act of Congress in 1866, and accepted into the state on 1867 by an act of the State Legislature.  He concluded that all of these lands belong to the State of Nevada and not to the Federal Government, and it is not legally managed by the BLM.  Download his Power Point presentation here: Who Owns Nevada’s Lands?

GARTH KANT

WASHINGTON – Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., unleashed a tirade against Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., bemoaning that, “I am forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings of the minority leader.”

“Normally, like every other American, I ignore them,” he continued, “I can’t ignore them today, however.”

Cotton made the comments on the Senate floor Wednesday, while blasting Reid for “his cancerous leadership” and for trying delay a defense spending bill that had just passed by a vote of 98-0.

Politicians Wasted Billions Trying to ‘Invest in Our Future’

ENERGY / COMMENTARY

How Washington Politicians Wasted

Billions Trying to ‘Invest in Our

Future’

Nicolas Loris / @NiconomistLoris / May 06, 2016

The federal government has wasted billions on energy projects promising to usher in a new energy future.

Why? Because revolutions don’t come from the government—they come from the people, and the same holds true for energy.

Despite many attempts to force it, the next energy revolution won’t come from Washington. All Washington can do is play favorites when picking energy options (think Solyndra).

It does this through providing grants, loans, loan guarantees, mandates (like the use of biofuels), and tax subsidies to specific energy technologies—to only name of a few.

Another way in which the government intervenes in the energy market is the annual budget of the Department of Energy. Programs within the Department of Energy supposedly recognize that there’s great potential for wind, solar, fusion, geothermal, biofuels, carbon capturing technology for coal, and much more. These energy sources and technologies themselves may very well be worthy of investment, but that’s not the point. The problem is the government meddling in what is clearly not its role.

Please tell all the GOP bigwigs bashing Donald Trump to grow up

I guess this is why they call it the Grand Old Party and not the Grown-Up Party.

The reaction of so many leading Republicans to the impending presidential nomination represents the most childish temper tantrum in American political history.

Let’s start with Mitt Romney, the bumbling incompetent who managed to lose what everyone thought was a winnable election against Barack Obama in 2012.

There are reports that Romney has been consorting with closet left-winger Bill Kristol about a third-party candidacy against Trump this fall.

There are only two kinds of people who talk about third-party candidacies: Really stupid people and really smart people.

The really stupid people actually believe the third-party candidate can defeat the major-party candidates in the presidential race.

This has happened exactly never.

Executive Actions on Immigration goes to Supreme Court Today

House GOP Takes Fight Against

Obama’s Executive Actions on

Immigration to Supreme Court

Today

Leah Barkoukis | Apr 18, 2016

House Republicans are finally getting their day in court to make the case against President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration.

The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in United States v. Texas on Monday, a case that challenges the constitutionality of Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program.

While lawmakers routinely file amicus briefs in cases before the high court, this is the first instance in which the House authorized taking sides in the case. The House did that on March 17 by passing a resolution in a partly-line 234-186 vote.

Attorney Paul Clement will represent the House pro bono in the case, which originated in Texas. He’ll have 15 minutes to make the House’s arguments. While Clement will represent the House, Democrats aren’t on board and voted against the resolution.

Bernie Sanders and the ILLUSION of Socialism

It’s astonishing that the concept of Socialism even has to be explained in the United States of America and that we have someone of that persuasion running for the highest office of the land!*

Bernie Sanders and the ILLUSION

of Socialism

Written by Leonora Cravotta on April 17, 2016

Senator Bernie Sanders is giving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the race for the nomination for the 2016 Democratic presidential ticket. The Vermont senator, an Independent who became a Democrat so that he could run for president, was never predicted to make any significant traction in the race. However, the man who told congress when he was first elected to the House of Representatives, “I am a socialist and everyone knows that,” has proven that there clearly is an audience for his non-establishment outsider message in terms of his ability to generate huge crowds at campaign rallies, cultivate individual donor contributions and win primary races.

While Real Clear Politics has Clinton polling at 52.7% with a 13.8 point advantage over Sanders at 38.9%, in the critical upcoming April 19 New York primary, Sanders a New York native who has walked away with the last seven primaries still has the opportunity to cut into Clinton’s lead in the Empire State. Even though pragmatists would say that Sanders, who has 1,069 delegates to Clinton’s 1758, does not have a realistic chance against Clinton to earn the nomination, his recent primary wins and the current buzz about a Democratic brokered convention show that you cannot write him off just yet.

The “feel the Bern” momentum begs the reiteration of a key point. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. While there are some who applaud Sanders because he consistently beats Clinton on the trustworthiness and truthfulness quotient, we cannot lose sight of the definition of socialism. According to Merriam Webster, socialism is “a system of society or group living in which there is no private property” and “a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state.” Socialism eradicates the concept of individual wealth.
