Pro-Hillary smear grps & super PACs Media Matters-Correct the Record-American Independent Institute-American Bridge

“Redacted due to Chairman Gowdy’s refusal to allow release of transcript,” says a footnote to the pages of thick black redaction marks. “If released, the transcript would show that Republicans asked Mr. Blumenthal questions about his relationship with Media Matters, David Brock and Correct the Record.” Brock is a longtime Clinton loyalist, and Correct the Record and Media Matters are among the nonprofits he uses to attack Clinton opponents.

1.6 Million Enrollees Drop Out of Obamacare After Not Paying Their Premiums

The administration claims to still be on track to meet their enrollment goals, attributing much of the attrition to expected causes like enrollees switching to employer-provided plans. The point remains that all this free healthcare comes with a price tag that many simply don't want to pay. (Or can't AFFORD to pay)


Permanent taint... Phoenix Journalist Who Broke Story of Clinton-Lynch Private Meeting Claims FBI Issued Bizarre Order to Bystanders

The FBI ordered “no photos, no pictures, no cell phones” to those gathered on the Phoenix airport tarmac when former President Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on her plane Monday, according to the journalist who broke the story.

“The former president steps into her plane. They then speak for 30 minutes privately. The FBI there on the tarmac instructing everybody around ‘no photos, no pictures, no cell phones,’” Christopher Sign of KNXV-TV told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Thursday night, citing sources. “He then gets off the plane, gets on his own plane, he departs, she continues on with her planned visit.”

The White House says there's no back-up plan if Hillary Clinton gets indicted

That sound you just heard was the other shoe dropping.

Loretta Lynch regrets meeting with Bill Clinton and wouldn’t do it again, especially knowing she might get caught

According to this source, whose credentials were checked and confirmed by the Observer with sources inside both the FBI and the United States Secret Service, the attorney general was caught completely off guard by the meeting and the source dismisses suggestions that have been raised alleging that she waited there to see Bill Clinton or accommodated his request to see him. In fact, it seems from this source that it was Bill Clinton who was maneuvering for face time with the attorney general, because his plane had been scheduled to leave before hers arrived.

Clinton sought secret info on EU bailout plans as son-in-law's hedge fund gambled on Greece, shared classified information

Clinton stepped down as secretary of state in 2013 to run for president. But newly released emails from 2012 show that she and Clinton Foundation consultant, Sidney Blumenthal, shared classified information about how German leadership viewed the prospects for a Greek bailout. Clinton also shared “protected” State Department information about Greek bonds with her husband at the same time that her son-in-law aimed his hedge fund at Greece.

That America’s top diplomat kept a sharp eye on intelligence assessing the chances of a bailout of the Greek central bank is not a problem. However, sharing such sensitive information with friends and family would have been highly improper. Federal regulations prohibit the use of nonpublic information to further private interests or the interests of others. The mere perception of a conflict of interest is unacceptable.

Through its press representative, Eaglevale declined to comment for this story. Clinton’s campaign press office did not respond to a request for comment.

California will now require an ID and background check for ammunition purchases

The Legislature approved 12 bills on Thursday. One of the bills, which would have required a unique serial number or other official seal before assembling a firearm, was not immediately sent to Brown’s desk.

Bills Brown signed:

  • ▪ Assembly Bill 1511, by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago, D-Los Angeles, requiring that the infrequent loans of a firearm be made only to family members.
  • ▪ Senate Bill 880, co-authored by Hall and Sen. Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, and Assembly Bill 1135, Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-Greenbrae, amending the definition of assault weapons to include semi-automatic rifles with magazines that can be detached with a bullet button.
  • ▪ Assembly Bill 1695, by Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, expanding the existing misdemeanor of making a false report to law enforcement to include that a firearm has been lost or stolen, and imposing a 10-year ban on owning a firearm for people convicted of making a false report.
  • ▪ Senate Bill 1235, de León, creating a new regulatory framework for purchasing and selling ammunition.
  • ▪ Senate Bill 1446, Sen. Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, banning possession of high-capacity magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

Bills Brown vetoed:

  • ▪ Assembly Bill 1176, by Cooper, which would have put an initiative on the ballot to clarify that stealing a firearm is felony grand theft.
  • ▪ Assembly Bill 1674, by Santiago, which would have extended the limit on handguns of one purchase per month to long guns.
  • Brown said in a veto message that the regulation “would have the effect of burdening lawful citizens who wish to sell certain firearms that they no longer need.”
  • ▪ Assembly Bill 2607, by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, which would have expanded the list of people who are able to petition for gun violence restraining orders to include employers, co-workers, and mental health and school workers who had contact with the subject in the past six months.

In a veto message, Brown said expanding the list would be “premature.”

  • ▪ Senate Bill 894, by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, which would have made it an infraction to fail to report the theft or loss of a stolen firearm.

In a veto message, Brown noted that he vetoed similar messages in 2012 and 2013 “because I did not believe that a measure of this type would help identify gun traffickers or enable law enforcement to disarm people prohibited from having guns.

“I continue to believe that responsible people report the loss or theft of a firearm and irresponsible people do not; it is not likely that this bill would change that.”

▪ Assembly Bill 1673, by Gipson, which would have expanded the definition of “firearm” to curb homemade weapons created without serial numbers, or “ghost guns.”

The White House's (and Hillary's) latest headache

California's political class knew damn well the high-speed rail was a likely boondoggle; they just didn't care

Former Reason editor and current Bloomberg View columnist Virginia Postrel has a terrific new column laying out in damning detail the latest revelations in California's high-speed rail boondoggle. The Los Angeles Times, Postrel notes, published an investigative piece earlier this month showing that (in her paraphrasing), "When the Spanish construction company Ferrovial submitted its winning bid for a 22-mile segment, the proposal included a clear and inconvenient warning: 'More than likely, the California high speed rail will require large government subsidies for years to come.'" Worse yet—the state scrubbed that we're-gonna-need-a-bigger-subsidy warning from the project's website, almost certainly because the California High-Speed Rail Authority is heavily invested in the provable fiction that (in its own shouty words), "HIGH-SPEED RAIL IN CALIFORNIA WILL NOT REQUIRE OPERATING SUBSIDIES."

That thievery-level mendacity of the vested pro-rail interests within government, you can be sure, will not be the target of suggested fraud prosecutions in the Democratic Party's national platform. (Indeed, if they were being even-handed about suggesting law enforcement crackdowns against intentionally misleading forward statements, Democrats would be investigating why their own "five million green jobs" stubbornly failed to materialize.)

But California's broader political class also has blood on its hands...

Elizabeth Warren Shrieks: Successful Companies Like Apple “Snuff Out Competition” And “Threaten Our Democracy”…

A group of Nobel Prize-winners have signed onto a campaign demanding activist groups and their seemingly willing accomplices in the press refrain from spreading misinformation about the science behind genetically modified foods.

"The media very often likes to present a supposedly balanced argument," Sir Richard Roberts, who is spearheading the campaign along with fellow Nobel Prize-winner Philip Sharp, told the Washington Examiner's media desk Thursday.

"They present it as though it's a 50/50 deal, rather than the fact that it's a 99-to-1 percent. The media have to do a better job. They just have to do a better job of estimating where is the consensus and if you want to bring another view in, you have to point out it's a minority view," he added.

Zogby: Donald Trump is winning independents, middle class, Catholics, Protestants

And Rasmussen Reports poll of 1,000 likely voters shows Donald Trump with 43 per cent, compared with 39 per cent for Hillary Clinton. It's the first national poll since May 22 where Trump has been in the lead. Last week the same pollsters found Clinton ahead by 5 points – marking a 9-point swing in just 7 days

Mother of Benghazi victim slams Hillary: 'I'm not the liar -- you are!'

“Hillary is a liar,” said Smith, who was the mother of U.S. information management officer Sean Smith.

“It is definitely not time to move on. It has not been dealt with.”

Smith says there’s only one thing that would give her closure: to “see Hillary in stripes.”

“I think she ought to be made to acknowledge what she did, and she has not. So far, all she has done is lied and people are believing her.”

Smith doesn’t believe the media has done enough to get her answers about what happened in Benghazi.

“Have her call me! I’m still waiting. Hillary, I’m waiting for what you promised me. All I heard was you getting on TV calling me a liar. That’s not true, Hillary. I am not the liar. You are the liar.”

Smith was responding to Clinton’s indignant proclamation that it is “time to move on.”

It's time to demand a Special Prosecutor to investigate Clinton emails/Foundation

As his wife is under federal investigation for her use of a private email server, former President Bill Clinton met privately with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Airport Monday evening in what both sides say was an unplanned encounter.

An aide to Bill Clinton confirmed to CBS News that the meeting wasn't planned in advance: Clinton realized she would be on the same tarmac at the same time and wanted to say hello, adding that it's a courtesy Clinton "always extends" to public officials.

The meeting comes as former secretary of State Hillary Clinton is still under investigation for her email practices--and also came the day before House Republicans released a report criticizing the Obama administration's response to the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

Lynch told reporters that the topics of Benghazi and Clinton's email server did not come up, and that she and Clinton spoke largely about his grandchildren, golf and travel....

Join us in our #conventioncountdown! Only 18 days left!

The 2016 Republican National Convention will be held in Cleveland, Ohio at the Quicken Loans Arena July 18-21, 2016.

The Republican National Committee (RNC), the convention will host approximately 2,470 delegates and 2,302 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories.

The convention will also include approximately 15,000 credentialed media—an international press corps second only in size to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games—as well as a global audience that will witness a front row seat online thanks to our Internet and social media efforts.

Nearly 120 staffers will eventually live, dine and shop in the Cleveland area in preparation for the 2016 Republican National Convention. And roughly 50,000 people are expected to visit the Cleveland area during the gathering.

2016 will mark the fourth time the Republican Party will convene its convention in Ohio. The Buckeye State also played host to the 1876, 1924 and 1936 Republican National Conventions in Cincinnati (’76) and Cleveland (’24 and ’36).

Hillary, Here’s Why It’s Not ‘Time to Move On’ on Benghazi

Hillary Clinton thinks it’s “time to move on” following the release of the House Select Committee’s final report on Benghazi.

There’s a little problem with that. In order for me to move on, I’m first going to need her to tell the truth.

So, some questions for you, Hillary. Answer these and maybe we can move on. (at the link)

Tips for staying safe while traveling overseas after terror attack in #Istanbul

This week's terrorist attack at Istanbul's main airport may make many travelers jittery as they prepare for an overseas summer getaway. And who can blame them, following attacks in Paris, at the Brussels airport and elsewhere around the world?

Travel experts advise vacationers not to lose sleep over the highly-publicized tragedies and to look at the larger, statistical picture. Be more concerned, they say, with more-common vacation hazards, like failing to put on an extra coat of sunscreen to avoid skin cancer....

Travel expert Wendy Perrin offers a number of tips on her website to stay safe overseas.

  • "Clearly, we're living in a world where an attack can happen anywhere at any time. The answer is not to stop traveling abroad out of a misperception that your risk is greater overseas than it is at home," Perrin says. "The answer, actually, is to experience more of the world — to make friends in other countries and to be a responsible ambassador for yours."
  • Planning for a safe trip starts long before departure. For instance, Perrin suggests booking hotels that have CNN, BBC, and Al-Jazeera and reliable internet so travelers can get news in the mornings and evenings.
  • And when arriving at the hotel, grab its business card — the one written in the local language — and carry it at all times. If there is an emergency, the card can be shown to non-English speakers, such as taxi drivers, who can help you get back to the hotel.
  • Program emergency numbers such as the police, the hotel and medical facilities into the cellphones of everyone in your party.
  • Finally, make practical decisions such as staying away from bad neighborhoods, especially a night, just like travelers would in any U.S. city.

EU to Britain: No access to single market without migration

...27 remaining EU members remain divided over how to deal with immigration. Central European nations led by Hungary refuse to accept imposed EU refugee quotas, and countries further north have all tightened border controls in response to the arrival of more than 1 million migrants last year. Britain is more concerned about EU immigration, since its strong economy draws hundreds of thousands of workers from other EU nations....

The president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, said the e-mails released Monday show Clinton “did not turn over all” records in her possession and raised questions about what other records should have been produced. “I keep on asking, What else is out there?” Fitton said.

#AlQaeda now telling members not to kill minorities because America will blame Christian Republicans & not them:

People were weeping tears of joy because they have easier access to kill their unborn children. What have we become?

Once upon a time, liberals portrayed the procedure of abortion as a thing regrettable but sometimes necessary. This was the cottony, “safe, legal, and rare” piety of yesteryear. That old rhetorical dressing has been ripped off for good. Today, The Daily Show is taking a tut-tutting in the media for having tweeted to its 4.25 million followers a comment that some find tasteless: “Celebrate the #SCOTUS ruling! Go knock someone up in Texas!” The indignation is faux. Under the logic of secularist progressivism today, the only thing regrettable about abortion is that there isn’t more of it.

Dems Kill Zika Funding After Not Getting Extra Cash for Planned Parenthood

When it comes to preparing for the potential effects of the Zika virus, Democrats in Congress and the President have stymied efforts to protect a favored constituency.

They're insisting that abortion provider Planned Parenthood be eligible for additional, emergency appropriations for Zika preparations.

#Brexit is a clear signal to Congress: Fix America's overregulation problem

At the heart of the decision by the U.K. to leave the European Union was an evident desire of the British people to restore economic freedom, self-determination, and independence. Congress should take note: Americans want the same thing.

Fundamentally, the Brexit campaign has been about pursuing the freedom to choose, driven by the proven conviction that greater freedom will lead to greater entrepreneurial dynamism and prosperity. The British people made it clear that they want to “exit” from the straightjacket of senseless overregulation imposed by unelected bureaucrats....
