The Bill Clinton Effect:

Saudi Arabia executes 47 people, including top Shiite cleric

Republican: Obamacare repeal would be "significant step in improving our healthcare system"

One of Ted Cruz’s first messages of the year is not about politics and polls, but galaxies and geekdom.

“For anyone who grew up idolizing Han Solo, as I did as a kid, there is an image in this movie that was traumatic at a level that will be permanently seared onto my mind forever,“ he added, being careful not to give away any spoilers for fans who haven’t yet seen the movie.

He did, however, make a point to let listeners know his opinion on one particular aspect of the series.

“Just for the record, Han Solo shot first,” he said.

Despite the purported similarities between the dysfunction in Washington and grim future societies featured movies such as the Hunger Games, the Texas senator was quick to reassure prospective voters that his super hero fandom is purely for entertainment, not practical purposes.

“I think it’s fair to say that I’m unlikely anytime soon to put a mask on my head and start murdering bad guys on the street,” he joked.
Cruz is, however, a fan of the Hunger Games’ Mockingjay symbol that has popped up as a tribute to liberty by supporters of his campaign.

“I think it’s fabulous,” he said. “We could use a few more Katniss Evergreens in the world to take on what’s wrong with Washington.”

Secret Service agents: Hillary is a nightmare to work with

“Good morning, ma’am,” a member of the uniformed Secret Service once greeted Hillary Clinton.

“F— off,” she replied.

That exchange is one among many that active and retired Secret Service agents shared with Ronald Kessler, author of “First Family Detail,” a compelling look at the intrepid personnel who shield America’s presidents and their families — and those whom they guard....

“When in public, Hillary smiles and acts graciously,” Kessler explains. “As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.”

He adds: “Hillary Clinton can make Richard Nixon look like Mahatma Gandhi.”

...Secret Service “agents consider being assigned to her detail a form of punishment,” Kessler concludes. “In fact, agents say being on Hillary Clinton’s detail is the worst duty assignment in the Secret Service.”

After studying the Secret Service and its relationships with dozens of presidents, vice presidents and their families, Ronald Kessler’s astonishment at Hillary Clinton’s inhumanity should reverberate in every American’s head.

As he told me: “No one would hire such a person to work at a McDonald’s, and yet she is being considered for president of the United States.”

NEW DETAILS: Man charged with arson in southwest Houston mosque fire

Investigators also cited in court records say they identified Moore as the suspect via surveillance video from a pharmacy adjacent to the mosque. Claims by law enforcement in court records show the suspect was seen walking quickly from the mosque shortly before smoke erupted from the building.

Police allege during a search of Moore's home that they recovered a backpack and clothing that appeared to be the same items seen in the surveillance video from the time of the fire, court records show.

Police also say they found a single charcoal lighter -- which appears to have been sold as a pair -- at Moore's home. In addition, they allege a charcoal lighter found at scene matched the one found at Moore's home using markers and stamped numbers on the containers, records show.

Authorities say in those court papers that they took computers, tablets, cell phones, and other electronic devices for forensic testing from the Moore's home.

Sex, Lies, Clinton and Trump

The Donald — you'll be surprised to hear if you've been living on Pluto — has been firing back, sweeping Mr. Hillary, now supposedly about to stump for his wife, into the fray.

"You look at whether it's Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones or many of them," Trump said on NBC's TODAY. "That certainly will be fair game. Certainly if they play the woman's card with respect to me, that will be fair game."

In recent days, the GOP front-runner has been highlighting the former president's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, saying that Bill Clinton has a pattern of "abuse of women."

NYT Scrubs Details From Article About An Obama Off-The-Record Meeting

“I really wanted [San Bernardino Terrost Attack] to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims”…

More from the New York Post:
The cleric acting as spokesman for the San Bernardino mosque where terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook worshipped claims he barely knew Farook and didn’t know his terrorist wife at all. But phone records and other evidence uncovered by federal investigators cast suspicion on his story.

The FBI has questioned the cleric, Roshan Zamir Abbassi, about his phone communications with Farook — including a flurry of at least 38 messages over a two-week span in June, coinciding with the deadly Muslim terrorist attack on two military sites in Chattanooga, Tenn.
And then there’s this. Abbassi reportedly posted anti-American comments on Facebook and there was a nutter conspiracy video on the mosque’s webpage suggesting that the attack was a “false flag conspiracy” and that Farook and Malik were “patsies”:
Abbassi recently posted a message on Facebook condemning the United States and other Western nations for their Mideast policies, arguing they are equally guilty of violence to achieve political and religious goals. His mosque’s Web page features a video claiming that the San Bernardino shooting was carried out by the US government in a “false flag conspiracy,” and that Farook and Malik were “patsies” assassinated “by government-sponsored perpetrators.”

“When that thing happened in France, we were sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God, these terrorists!’ And I can’t even tell you how much that day the thing that happened in San Bernardino — I was in Hawaii — how much I really wanted that to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims, because it’s like: ‘Oh, shit. It’s here. And it’s here in another kind of way.’ Now, okay, it happened on an Army base and it happened somewhere else. But now? It’s like they have a legitimate reason now to look at your Muslim neighbor, friend, whatever in another way. And they become the new young black men.”

The Palestinians Descend Deeper Into Depravity

While American eyes are rightly fixed on ISIS, Palestine’s so-called “Stabbing Intifada” continues. For those unfamiliar with the latest twist in Palestinian terror tactics, Israel is beset by a spate of apparently spontaneous stabbing attacks, where (mostly) young Palestinians grab kitchen knives or other sharp objects and do their best to stab or hack to death as many Jews as possible. The Washington Post has the chilling details:
Young Palestinians with kitchen knives are waging a ceaseless campaign of near-suicidal violence that Israeli leaders are calling “a new kind of terrorism.” There were three attacks on Christmas Eve — two stabbings and one car ramming. There have been about 120 attacks and attempted assaults by Palestinians against Israelis since early October, an average of more than one a day. At least 20 Israelis have been killed; more than 80 Palestinians have been shot dead by security forces and armed civilians during the assaults. There is a numbing repetition to the news: knife-wielding Palestinian at a military checkpoint or bus stop shot dead at the scene — or “neutralized,” as the Israeli media call it. Many of the assaults or their aftermaths have been captured on cellphone videos....

Hillary, post 9/11, said “Ban All Muslims”: Now she’s trying to HIDE THE VIDEO


Post-9/11: 'We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe'

While now claiming Donald Trump is the personification of an ISIS recruiting poster and having Tweeted last month that Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism, Hillary Clinton was telling a different story post-9/11.

In fact, she once called for profiling Muslims and doing "whatever it takes to keep our people safe."

That's what she told ABC's Sam Donaldson in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Donaldson asked: "Let's talk about American life now, though. What happens in the future from the standpoint of the question of security versus relaxation or giving up some of the freedoms that we've enjoyed in this country? How far do we go, for instance, on airline security?"

Clinton responded: "Well, I think everyone recognizes we have to tighten security. We have to do whatever it takes to keep our people safe."

Donaldson asked: "Including profiling, senator?"

Clinton answered: "I think we have to do whatever it takes, Sam. And I believe that, you know, Tuesday changed everything. Tuesday was a day that America has never, ever had to experience. And I hope to heaven that we never have to again. But we are in a war situation, and we're going to have to do things people do in times of war. I just heard your interview with the mayor, and I think he's right to look at examples in history like the Battle of Britain. Many of us have been studying what others did to carry on. And we know that we have to make tradeoffs in convenience, in our freedom of movement, without undercutting or losing our way of life and our values, which I really want to make America special and great. And we can't ever let anyone undermine that."

Yeah, I'm sure Ambassador Stevens wasn't too happy w Hillary's theories about self- defense either.
