'Humans need to explore, push beyond current limits just like we did 45 years ago'

Aldrin, 85, spoke before a packed house Tuesday at Macky Auditorium on the University of Colorado's Boulder campus.

"America must be the world leader in human space flight," he said. "There is no other area that clearly demonstrates American innovation and enterprise than human space flight."

Aldrin made history with Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969, when the two men became the first humans to step foot on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission. In total, they spent 21 hours on the lunar surface gathering 46 pounds of moon rocks. Some 600 million people watched the historic scene on television.

AUDIO: Obama Admin Is ‘Going After’ Gun Dealers [VIDEO]



link - Patrick Howley/Daily Caller

The Obama administration’s Operation Choke Point program targets gun and ammunition dealers and tries to make life “miserable” for businesses that it doesn’t like, a payment processor told a Choke Point victim in jarring new audio.

Operation Choke Point is a program by which the Department of Justice works with other administration agencies, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to force banks to shut down accounts of businesses that it objects to. The program purports to fight fraudulent businesses, but has instead targeted many gun and ammunition dealers and other lawful businesses.

Audio obtained by the US Consumer Coalition and provided to The Daily Caller presents the latest disturbing example of Choke Point’s overreach....

“Well, they’re doing it by fiat. They’re doing it without a legislative process. They’re just doing it on a rather, you know, directed basis of their own free will,” Bacon said.

“They’re going after clinics, they’re going after collection agencies, they’re going after guns dealers, ammunition dealers, payment processors,” Bacon continued.

“We’re going to make your life miserable. Instead of auditing you once a year we’re going to audit you four times a year,” Bacon said, taking the voice of an Operation Choke Point investigator. “If we find anything negative we’re going to write it up and then you’re going to incur increased cost increased focus with your board of directors and from other banking regulators. And they all run scared because they’re all sheep.”

Hillary's Off-the-Books Mail Server Was in Her House, Registered to a Non-Existent Man



Clinton Private Server Listed Under Mysterious, Untraceable Name - CBS DC
It remains unclear exactly who set up and maintained the private email server for Clinton, but the AP traced it back to Eric Hoteham – a mysterious identity that “does not appear in public records databases, campaign contribution records or Internet background searches.”

However, Hoteham’s name is listed as a customer at the Clinton’s $1.7 million estate on Old House Lane in Chappaqua. The records have been registered for the Internet address for her email server since August 2010 and Hoteham is also listed as someone associated with the website “presidentclinton.com” and a defunct address for “wjcoffice.com.”

As of Wednesday, several fake Twitter accounts had been created representing the “Eric Hoteham” personality.

Operating her own server would have afforded Clinton additional legal opportunities to block government or private subpoenas in criminal, administrative or civil cases because her lawyers could object in court before being forced to turn over any emails. And since the Secret Service was guarding Clinton’s home, an email server there would have been well protected from theft or a physical hacking.

Gowdy: Clinton e-mails prove need for Benghazi probe - USA Today
Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said panel members knew Clinton used personal e-mail accounts during her tenure but didn't learn until recently that all of her State Department business was conducted outside normal government e-mail channels.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that Clinton avoided official e-mail accounts and may have broken federal rules about maintaining government records....

"You do not need a law degree to understand how troubling this is," Gowdy said.
Planet Hillary Sends in The Cavalry to Debunk Email Scandal, Fails to Correct the Record - Washington Free Beacon
One Hillary Clinton ally believes the New York Times owes Clinton an apology.

David Brock, known for his loyalty, went on Morning Joe Wednesday to come to Clinton’s defense.

Brock called Michael S. Schmidt’s article about Clinton using a private email address while Secretary of State “sloppily done” and demanded a retraction.

Instead, the reporter doubled down. Schmidt reported Wednesday that when Clinton was asked for emails related to the Benghazi scandal, the State Department did not hand over any emails from Clinton’s personal account.

Brock said the media was not treating Clinton fairly. He blamed the paper for accusing Clinton of breaking the Federal Records Act without full proof.

The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward rejected Brock’s argument.

“I’m sorry, but this kind of sounds like a non-denial denial,” Woodward told Brock.










Bill Clinton portrait features shadow of Lewinsky dress, says artist



Pennsylvania artist Nelson Shanks told the Philadelphia Daily News in a Sunday article that the painting features a shadow on its left-hand side, and that the shadow was actually cast by a blue dress that was placed on a mannequin. - LA Times

"The reality is [Clinton's] probably the most famous liar of all time. He and his administration did some very good things, of course, but I could never get this Monica thing completely out of my mind and it is subtly incorporated in the painting," the artist told the newspaper.

Shanks said that the mannequin was present while he was creating the portrait, but not while Clinton was posing.

He added that the dress "represents a shadow on the office [Clinton] held, or on him."

Lewinsky's blue dress was a focal point of the Clinton scandal, which first broke in 1998. In sworn testimony, the president initially denied that he had had sexual relations with the White House intern, who at the time of the encounters was 22.

After Lewinsky submitted a blue dress with a semen stain, Clinton publicly admitted that he had an improper "physical" relationship with the intern. Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives but acquitted in a subsequent Senate trial.

Mark Levin: Obama is Imprisonment President – More Genocide, More Rape, More Enslavement



link - Jim Hoft/Gateway Pundit

"Barack Obama is a community organizer. He’s a rabble rouser. He’s an ideologue. And, he’s an appeaser… What Obama wants is a like-minded leftist in Israel, and they’re there, to work with to accommodate his agenda. Now, I would be very careful about his agenda if I were a leftist in Israel. Since there’s been more genocide, more rape, more enslavement under this president than any president in modern history. You know I think back to Reagan. Reagan was a liberator. He liberated hundreds of millions of people under the Soviet Union. This president is the imprisonment president. Society after society is collapsing. And, he’s making nice with Iran which is an Islamic terrorist regime."

Poll: GOP voters want candidates to be much more conservative

Mitt Romney: President Obama may ignore @netanyahu, but he cannot ignore the truth he spoke. A flimsy Iran deal amounts to presidential malpractice.

Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous

Human Events’ readers, in an online poll, recently voted billionaire financier George Soros “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Here are the Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous: - Human Events

1. Gives billions to left-wing causes: Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes. Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups. This partial list of recipients of Soros’ money says it all: ACORN, Apollo Alliance, National Council of La Raza, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, Southern Poverty Law Center, Soujourners, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women.

2. Influence on U.S. elections: Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.” He put his money where his mouth is, giving $23.58 million to various 527 groups dedicated to defeating Bush. His early financial support helped jump-start Barack Obama’s political career. Soros hosted a 2004 fund-raiser for Obama when he was running for the Illinois Senate and gave the maximum-allowed contribution within hours of Obama’s announcement that he was running for President.

Maybe the Nobel laureate who had a vision of a world free of nuclear weapons can explain why he is so intent on making sure Iran gets some

Idiot Nobel Chairman Who Gave Obama a Peace Prize Receives Unprecedented Demotion - Stephen Kruiser/PJMedia

...Mr Jagland also oversaw the controversial award handed to newly elected US President Barack Obama in 2009, shortly after becoming chairman that same year.

The move stunned the world and the recipient alike, as Mr Obama had been in office for fewer than nine months and the United States was still waging simultaneous wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Mr Jagland said at the time that the organisation wanted to praise the US leader’s early vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and capture “the spirit of the times, the needs of the era....”
