The Obama administration is withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.

The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.   Continue reading “Obama Admin Won’t Tell Congress How It Paid Iran $1.3 Billion in Taxpayer Funds”

On Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Ohio police that, if elected, he would give them military weapons. He also told black and Latino voters that since they live in “war zones” they could only be safe by voting for him.

Trump met with the Akron chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, a union that has not yet endorsed a presidential candidate. He reportedly vowed to be “a cheerleader” for police if elected president, and said he would supply them with military weapons currently unavailable to them.

The Pentagon has warned Syria and Russia that the US is ready to shoot down their planes, which Washington claims threaten American advisers in northern Syria.

The warning came after US fighter jets tried to engage Syrian Arab Air Force aircraft in Syria last week, but the showdown was avoided as government planes left before the Americans arrived.   Continue reading “US ready to target Russian, Syrian jets in Syria: Pentagon”

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal judge in Texas has blocked the Obama administration’s order that requires public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their chosen gender identity.

In a temporary injunction signed Sunday, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor ruled that the federal education law known as Title IX “is not ambiguous” about sex being defined as “the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth.”   Continue reading “Judge in Texas temporarily blocks Obama’s transgender rules”

As we reported a few days ago, Bill and Hillary Clinton spent Friday night in Martha’s Vineyard celebrating Bill’s 70th birthday (posted here).  We’re sure it was a grand affair, well worth the heat Obama had to take from Louisiana flood victims to attend.

Turns out the following morning, Hillary, not one to be bothered with traditional peasant forms of travel, awoke andtook her private jet just 20 miles over to Nantucket where the Rothschilds will be hosting a fundraiser.  The event is open to all…well anyone who can afford the $100,000 per person price tag.  Hopefully this is a sign that the whole global warming thing has been solved and we can all rest comfortably at night knowing that we’re safe from sudden, violent attacks at the hands of ManBearPig.   Continue reading “Hillary Clinton Flies 20 Miles In Private Jet To Attend Rothschild Nantucket Fundraiser”

A former Navy machinist mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state.

Kristian Saucier’s attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been “engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier” with information of much higher classification. It would be “unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid,” attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

Dated February 2016, the memo, co-authored by OSF U.S. programs director Ken Zimmerman and deputy director Andrea Batista Schlesinger, addresses the group’s 14-member advisory board of U.S. operations, the Daily Caller reported.    Continue reading “Soros Hack Shows Billionaire Tried to Buy Supreme Court Ruling on Immigration”

A California man is facing criminal charges for erecting a small dwelling off the grid on property that he owns.

Soylent CEO Rob Rhinehart purchased the 8,422-square-foot piece of land on Los Angeles’ Flat Top Hill in a city auction in December. With no electricity or water hook-ups, it sold for a cheap $21,300. Rhinehart spent a further $1,500 buying a red shipping container to place on the land and adding a portable toilet and solar power. His aim was to create a minimalist home featuring graywater recycling, solar panels, and a septic tank.   Continue reading “Man facing years in prison for placing simple off-the-grid cabin on his own property”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has signed bipartisan-backed legislation that will punish groups that endorse a boycott of Israel in protest of its violations of Palestinian human rights. Christie, who is one of the most outspoken supporters of far-right Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, signed the bill on Tuesday.

It requires the New Jersey government to identify companies that support a boycott of Israel, raising fears that it would create a “blacklist” of institutions that back the growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, or BDS, movement.

Most of Target’s 1,797 locations already have single-occupancy or unisex restrooms, but it will add the option to 277 stores by November and to about 20 remaining stores by March 2017, the company said on Wednesday.   Continue reading “Target To Spend $20 Million On Private Bathrooms After Customer Revolt”

The first day of school will be remembered for all the wrong reasons by 145 California children in the Folsom Cordova Unified School district, who arrived on the much-anticipated day only to be turned away because they lacked the proper immunization records.

The move is part of a new state law that went into effect last month, SB277, that removed vaccine exemptions based on personal and religious beliefs. Under the law, students who are entering “checkpoint years” – kindergarten and seventh grade – are required to provide their full vaccination records. Of the district’s 1,462 students in these grades, 157 had been singled out by the school as not having vaccine records.   Continue reading “MEDICAL TYRANNY: California children now being denied public education until their parents submit to forced vaccinations”

Yes, we are all well aware the Constitution limits the Presidency to two consecutive four-year terms of office.  Then again, if you weigh the track record of the Obama administration, the Constitution is nothing more than a challenge that he bypasses and circumvents with every given opportunity.  Small wonder that he may very well do the same thing with the upcoming presidential elections.  Already a sham, the presidential elections are actually a vehicle he can use to grab that “Third Term” for himself.   Continue reading “Obama Wants A Third Term And This Is How He Could Make It Happen”

Despite “heroic” promises to accept 160,000 Syrian refugees, European Union member states have only accepted 6,000 to date while the US alone has already admitted 8,000 of the 10,000 promised.  So in light of recent terrorist attacks this begs the question is the U.S. being honorable or just dumb?  According to Nayla Rush of the Center for Immigration Studies the answer might just be the latter (although she’s far more polite than we are):   Continue reading “Obama Accepts “Surge” Of 8,000 Syrian Refugees – More Than All Of Europe (And Hillary Wants More)”

The lawsuit, filed this week by Grant Smith, the director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, comes as the US and Israel have closed many of the gaps in negotiations over a new 10-year military aid package worth tens of billions of dollars.   Continue reading “Lawsuit says US aid to Israel illegal under 1976 law”
