Phyllis Schlafly Issues Rubio Betrayal Memo

Conservative icon and grassroots heroine Phyllis Schlafly has released a new report extensively detailing Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s efforts to deceive the American people in his determined pursuit to open the nation’s borders.

Schlafly’s 15-page report on Rubio’s “betrayal” provides hyperlinked sources to document Rubio’s “big con.”
Schlafly’s memo warns the American people that Rubio’s push to deliver globalist immigration policies for his donors is not finished. “There is likely no person in the United States of America in a better position to enact mass immigration legislation than a President Rubio — no one who could deliver more votes in both parties for open borders immigration,” the memo states. “Senator Rubio is not Main Street’s Obama, he is Wall Street’s Obama: President Obama was a hardcore leftist running as a centrist; Senator Rubio is a Wall Street globalist running as a tea party conservative.”
The report is broken up into more than a dozen subsections, including “LYING TO CONSERVATIVE MEDIA,” in which Schlafly details how Rubio made countless false promises to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, National Review, and others. “Rubio traded shamelessly on the affection and trust conservatives had placed in him,” the memo states. “His deceptions about his immigration bill rivaled and exceeded Obama’s claims about disastrous Obamacare.”
Although in recent months, many of National Review’s writers have sought to boost Rubio’s candidacy, the memo later notes that “National Review has never received an apology for being repeatedly lied to by Rubio.” The memo reports, “To this day, Rubio has not only never retracted one of his false statements — never admitted any wrongdoing — but never even apologized to those he deceived, and their millions of listeners. Instead, he is raising more money and telling the same lies all over again, as he continues his push for mass amnesty and mass immigration.”
Another subsection of the memo entitled “AMERICAN WORKERS CAN’T CUT IT”statesIn a for-attribution interview with Ryan Lizza, two senior Rubio staffers expressed frustration that they couldn’t get even more foreign workers crammed into the bill for their boss.  They explained:  ‘There are American workers who, for lack of a better term, can’t cut it.’  Rubio’s spokesman — now his campaign spokesman — also compared opponents of amnesty to slaveholders. More on that here.
The memo also documents the back-room deals involved in the bill. A subsection entitled,“IMMIGRATION-FOR-PROFIT” reports that Rubio’s lawyer, who wrote the bill, also enriched his clients through it.”  The “REFUGEES” subsection notes: “Rubio’s bill included language giving the President unprecedented power to expand refugee resettlement.   The “FIANCÉ VISAS” subsection points out that “Rubio’s bill opened the floodgates for fiancé visas — and fiancé children — an unprecedented security risk and another handout to the foreign immigration lobby.”

In a subsection titled, “DECEIVING LAW ENFORCEMENT,” the memo states:   Read On>>>>>

Finally, America May Be Catching On to Ethanol Racket

Daily Signal

Portrait of Nicolas Loris

Nicolas Loris@NiconomistLorisNicolas Loris, an economist, focuses on energy, environmental and regulatory issues as the Herbert and Joyce Morgan fellow at The Heritage Foundation.Read his research.
The results of the Iowa caucus proved that even Iowans—long seen as fervent proponents of ethanol—don’t view Washington’s favoritism to it as necessarily still required.  Much like many campaigns out there, the Renewable Fuel Standard that mandates the use of biofuels in our gasoline has been full of empty promises. When Congress passed the Renewable Fuel Standard in 2005 and expanded the mandate in 2007, policymakers promised reduced dependence on foreign oil, a new source of cleaner energy to lower gas prices, a stronger economy, and an improved environment.
This was certainly wishful thinking, as none of it has come true.
Instead, the policy has resulted in adverse effects to the economy and the environment and demonstrated the folly of the government attempting to centrally plan America’s energy future.  The Energy Policy Act of 2005 first mandated that renewable fuels be mixed into America’s gasoline supply, primarily using corn-based ethanol. The 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act increased the quotas significantly.
By 2022, there must be 15 billion gallons of corn-based ethanol and a total of 36 billion gallons of biofuels blended into the nation’s fuel supply, including soybean-based biodiesel. The program does not end in 2022, however, but grants the Environmental Protection Agency authority to set yearly targets.  The mandate has harmed Americans in a number of ways. Ethanol has only two-thirds the energy content of petroleum-based gasoline, so drivers pay more. In addition, the Renewable Fuel Standard has not delivered on the promise of reducing dependence on oil and protection from high prices.   Read On>>>>>

America’s Economic Freedom Has Rapidly Declined Under Obama

Daily Signal
Anthony B. Kim
Anthony B. Kim researches international economic issues at The Heritage Foundation, with a strong focus on economic freedom. Kim is the research manager of the Index of Economic Freedom, the flagship product of the Heritage Foundation in partnership with The Wall Street Journal. Read his research.


The Daily Signal is the multimedia news organization of The Heritage Foundation.  We’ll respect your inbox and keep you informed.
Millions of people around the world are emerging from poverty thanks to rising economic freedom. But by sharp contrast, America’s economic freedom has been on a declining path over the past decade.  America’s declining score in the index is closely related to rapidly rising government spending, subsidies, and bailouts.  According to the 2016 Index of Economic Freedom, an annual publication by The Heritage Foundation, America’s economic freedom has tumbled. With losses of economic freedom in eight of the past nine years, the U.S. has tied its worst score ever, wiping out a decade of progress.
The U.S. has fallen from the 6th freest economy in the world, when President Barack Obama took office, to 11th place in 2016. America’s declining score in the index is closely related to rapidly rising government spending, subsidies, and bailouts.
Since early 2009:
* Government spending has exploded, amounting to $29,867 per household in 2015.
* The national debt has risen to $125,000 for every tax-filing household in America—a total over $18 trillion.
* The government takeover of health care is raising prices and disrupting markets.
* Bailouts and new government regulations have increased uncertainty, stifling investment and job creation.
This is not something to take lightly. Economic freedom is the foundation of U.S. economic strength, and economic strength is the foundation of America’s high living standards, military power, and status as a world leader. The perils of losing economic freedom are not fictional.  It is painfully clear that our economy has been performing far below its potential, with individuals, families, and entrepreneurs being squeezed by the proliferation of big-government bureaucracy and regulations.
As documented by the index, and by other scholars, America’s economic freedom has been declining at an alarming pace.
Indeed, as The Wall Street Journal recently summed it up succinctly, Obama is “a champion when it comes to limiting economic freedom, and American workers have the slow growth in jobs and wages to prove it.”
Not surprisingly, our economic dynamism and innovative capacity have been measurably reduced. Self-inflicted wounds include:
No wonder the labor force participation rate has remained at near record lowsafter more than five years of steady decline.  Worse, vibrant entrepreneurial growth has been stymied by greater policy uncertainty and mounting debt. And a disturbing trend toward cronyism has gravely eroded the rule of law and distorted our free-market system.  House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, keynote speaker of the official release of the 2016 Index, recently stated:

It’s been almost seven years since the Obama “recovery” began, and our economy is barely out of neutral. Why does America have to settle for this?  Restoring economic freedom is prerequisite to revitalizing and brightening America’s future. 2016 is the year to reaffirm the principles of limited government, free enterprise, and rule of law so that we can reconstitute an America where freedom, opportunity, and prosperity flourish.

The time to act is now.

DEBATE DECEPTION? Hillary misled about FBI probe, former agents say

DEBATE DECEPTION? Hillary misled about FBI probe, former agents say

Hillary Clinton used misleading language in Thursday night’s Democratic debate to describe the ongoing FBI investigation into her use of a private email server to conduct official government business while she was secretary of state, according to former senior FBI agents.
In the New Hampshire debate with Senator Bernie Sanders, which aired on MSNBC, Clinton told moderator Chuck Todd that nothing would come of the FBI probe, “I am 100 percent confident. This is a security review that was requested.  It is being carried out.”
Not true says Steve Pomerantz, who spent 28 years at the FBI, and rose from field investigative special agent to the rank of assistant director, the third highest position in the Bureau.
“They (the FBI) do not do security reviews,” Pomerantz said. “What they primarily do and what they are clearly doing in this instance is a criminal investigation.”
Pomerantz emphasized to Fox News, “There is no mechanism for her to be briefed and to have information about the conduct, the substance, the direction or the result of any FBI investigation.”  Separately, an intelligence source familiar with the two prongs of the ongoing FBI probe, stressed to Fox that the criminal and national security elements remain “inseparable.”  The source, not authorized to speak on the record,  characterized Clinton’s statement “as a typical Clinton diversion… and what is she going to say, “I’m 95 percent sure that I am going to get away with it?”
Fox recently learned that one of the FBI’s senior agents responsible for counterintelligence matters, Charles H. Kable IV, is working the Clinton case, another indicator the intelligence source said that the FBI probe is “extremely serious, and the A-team is handling.”  Kable, known as “Sandy,” was appointed special agent in charge of the counterintelligence division at the Washington field office by Director James Comey in December.
He had recently served as the chief of the counterespionage section at FBI headquarters.  In that capacity, a bureau press releases says the 15-year, well-respected FBI veteran, “provided leadership and oversight to the field offices engaged in espionage, economic espionage, and insider threat investigations.”    While his responsibilities are not publicly known, Kable was described to Fox as “tough and no- nonsense FBI ” and analyst and agents are exploring whether the mishandling of classified information was “intentional” and who may have benefited. Read On It Gets More Interesting>>>>>

‘Nervous’ Jeb defends Poppy Bush’s  United Nations ‘New World Order’

George Herbert Walker Bush was the first president to popularize the idea of creating a multinational ‘new world order’ following the first invasion of Iraq in 1991.

Jeb Bush found himself in the awkward position of having to answer for his father’s legendary statements on the need to create a “new world order.”  The topic was raised by a questioner at a town-hall meeting in Laconia, New Hampshire, Wednesday where Bush was campaigning for next week’s GOP primary.  A man stood up and asked the former Florida governor: “Your father spoke of a new world order. If elected, specifically, how will you continue to move the country toward this goal?”

Bush seemed taken aback, stumbling over his words and, at first, refusing to answer the question.

“I don’t know. I don’t have any intention to, uh, lead… I don’t know what that means to you so I’m not going to answer it. It makes me nervous to… It might mean something different to you than it means to me.”  But he quickly found his footing and provided a long, rambling explanation of national security and the importance of the United States staying “engaged” in the world.  “I believe that the priority of the president of the United States is to keep us safe. Period. Over and out,” he said. “And the way you do that is by leading in the world, by engaging the world.”

Watch Jeb Bush answer a New Hampshire voter’s question about the “new world order’:

Opinion: Mr. Ban Ki-Moon – You’re No Messenger

We have a message for you: we find your agendized diatribe to be obsessive, ignorant, and outdated.

No one missed the double entendre of your recent New York Times article titled, “Don’t Shoot the Messenger, Israel”, which had the chutzpah to both accuse Israel of a hot head and insinuate an itchy trigger finger. And yet amidst this thinly-veiled smear, you went on to suggest that you had offered Israel an important “message” – that we should rush to seal a Two-State deal – as if either we had never heard of this before or anyone in the region still thought it was a useful idea.
No one in Israel is going to shoot you for your trite and obsolete “message”, but we must shoot down the fallacious and hypocritical assertions of your article. Please allow me to elaborate:  First: Repeating the word “occupation” many times may sway the ignorant, but it is nothing but an outrageous lie. Israel is not in occupation in the West Bank at all. The West Bank – or what we call Judea – is the heart of our ancestral homeland. This was affirmed by the League of Nations, the predecessor of the United Nations, which recognized the historic rights of Jews in Judea. Indeed, because this is our beloved native land, many Jews (400,000 at last count) chose to build their homes and their lives here.
 Yet Jews are under attack in Judea, which is why we have deployed our army. If no one ran at Jews brandishing a knife, or mowed down Jews with automatic weapons while they sit in traffic, there would be no need for an army presence, and the “feel” of occupation would disappear. It’s just that simple. Stop threatening the life and limb of Jews, and you’ll stop feeling occupied. Keep denying the Jewish right to live in our ancestral lands and keep savagely attacking us, and it will keep feeling like there is a mighty Jewish army on your neck.
Mr. Ban Ki Moon, it is you who is keeping the Palestinians under an “occupation” of lies because you keep telling them that Jews don’t belong in Judea, and thereby spread the false hope that one day Jews won’t be there. But that is simply not the case. Israel will always be in Judea because, whether you understand it or not, it is at the heart of our identity. Now it is up to local Palestinians to decide: do they want to listen to you and live in denial and strife forever, or accept the truth, and live in peace?   Read On>>>>>

IT IS TIME FOR HILLARY CLINTON TO GET OUT OF THE RACE AND SHOP FOR AN ORANGE PANTS SUIT

Issa: FBI Has No Choice But To Recommend Clinton Indictment

Former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been under criminal investigation by the FBI for nearly a year. At this point, it’s been reported Clinton hosted thousands of emails containing classified information on her private email server. Worse, at least 22-emails contain the most sensitive of all top secret information about human sources, putting lives at risk in addition to compromising U.S. national security.
Yesterday on The Intelligence Report, former House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa explained why FBI Direct James Comey has no choice but to refer Clinton for indictment.  “The Director is somebody who cares a great deal about national security and with the body of evidence, he really has no choice but to refer this for indictment,” Issa said. “We have communications back and forth to the President from Hillary Clinton’s private email, we have 1300 sensitive documents, 22 classified at the highest level, this is well past anyone claiming that they didn’t know.”
“In this case she made a choice. She made a choice to have a private server, she made a choice to use it with highly sensitive material, she made a choice to receive and re-transmit documents that should have been classified and have later been classified,” he added. “These choices are what the prosecution will really be about.”
Currently, there are more than 150 FBI agents working on the Clinton case and the probe has expanded from the improper handling of classified information to public corruption surrounding the relationship between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department.

FOOT NOTE: The Clinton Foundations should be made to pay back the government for the cost of this investigation

“Nothing in the U.S. Constitution which offers any authority or role of the Executive Branch with regard to legislating to change the rights under the Second Amendment.”

New bull’s-eye on Obama’s ‘unconstitutional’ gun grab

The lawyer who brought the first legal challenge to the brand-new gun limits announced by President Obama last month now is asking a judge for a quick ruling, insisting there’s really nothing to argue over.   The new motion for summary judgment was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Palm Beach Division, by civil rights activist attorney Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch.
His recent lawsuit reasoned that there is “nothing in the U.S. Constitution which offers any authority or role of the executive branch with regard to legislating to change the rights under the Second Amendment.”  Now he’s arguing that the new gun rules, additional background check requirements, changed dealer licensing requirements and a move to abrogate privacy laws to require doctors to report on patient’s “mental health” issues did not follow the Constitution and the Administrative Procedures Act.
Besides, he argues, the executive branch admitted it was making the changes “purely because [Obama] does not like the legislative decisions of Congress.”  However, the motion argues, decisions “abridging the fundamental rights of the plaintiff and other U.S. citizens under the Second Amendment” are plainly unconstitutional.
“These actions are unconstitutional abuses of the president’s and the executive branch’s role in our nation’s constitutional architecture and exceed the powers of the president as set for in the U.S. Constitution,” he said.  He cites federal court rules that say a court “shall grant summary judgment if the movant shows that there is no genuine dispute as to any material fact and the movant is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.”
“Defendants openly and voluntarily admit to having changed the law regulating the purchase and sale, transfer, gift, or conveyance, of firearms, and the licensing requirements for those designated as ‘dealers,’” he explains.  That leaves Americans, “including plaintiff,” subject to “potential criminal prosecution … for conduct that was legal prior to Jan. 4, 2016.”
That was when the Obama administration announced numerous new interpretations of rules.  For example, the Obama administration warned that even individuals who sell a single firearm may, under the new interpretation, be considered a dealer and be required to obtain a federal firearms dealer’s license or be criminally prosecuted.  Klayman also notes Obama ordered federal agencies to strip citizens of Second Amendment rights sometimes even if they “have not been formally adjudicated as mentally incompetent by a court of law.”

And, he says, doctors are being encouraged to violate their patients’ privacy and “report their patients who exhibit any poorly defined mental health ‘issues.’”  “Even … those who disagree with the defendants are being labeled as mentally ill for disagreeing with politically correct opinions,” Klayman says.

Obama’s War on Poor Americans

Obama’s War on Poor Americans

President Obama just can’t help himself. Due to a broad array of economic factors, including, but not limited to, the expansion of an American domestic oil industry that his administration has rejected every step of the way, the price of oil is lower than it’s been in years. This has been a source of some relief for middle income Americans who are currently unemployed or undermployed on a massive scale. However, because it flies in the face of President Obama’s green agenda, he’s doing what Democrats do best: calling for a tax.

President Barack Obama is about to unveil an ambitious plan for a “21st century clean transportation system.” And he hopes to fund it with a tax on oil.  Obama aides told POLITICO that when he releases his final budget request next week, the president will propose more than $300 billion worth of investments over the next decade in mass transit, high-speed rail, self-driving cars, and other transportation approaches designed to reduce carbon emissions and congestion. To pay for it all, Obama will call for a $10 “fee” on every barrel of oil, a surcharge that would be paid by oil companies but would presumably be passed along to consumers.

There is no real chance that the Republican-controlled Congress will embrace Obama’s grand vision of climate-friendly mobility in an election year—especially after passing a long-stalled bipartisan highway bill just last year—and his aides acknowledge it’s mostly an effort to jump-start a conversation about the future of transportation. But by raising the specter of new taxes on fossil fuels, it could create a political quandary for Democrats. The fee could add as much as 25 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline, and even with petroleum prices at historic lows, the proposal could be particularly awkward for Hillary Clinton, who has embraced most of Obama’s policies but has also vowed to oppose any tax hikes on families earning less than $250,000 a year.

As Politico correctly points out, this tax is going to be passed down to the American consumer who’s already been browbeaten by the Obama economy, at which point money will be handed over to the same administration that brought us Solyndra, Solar City, and other failed energy and infrastructure investment projects, at a point when our current pace of government spending is already unsustainable.

Obama’s last year can’t pass fast enough.

AFTER 7 YEARS CONGRESS FINALLY DECIDES TO DO THE RIGHT THING?

GOP forms task force to challenge Obama’s ‘executive overreach’

Upset with what they see as “executive overreach” from the Obama administration, Republicans are forming a task force to challenge the president’s power.  The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday approved the task force, which will be chaired by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). The top Democrat on the task force will be Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.).  The task force will probe some of President Obama’s most controversial executive orders and regulations as it looks for ways to reassert GOP power in Washington.
“The Constitution is clear: It is the role of Congress to make all laws, the judiciary to interpret the laws, and the president to enforce the laws,” House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said in a statement.  The task force accuses “presidents of both parties” of “legislating from the Oval Office,” but the focus will be on the Obama administration.  Republicans are upset with President Obama’s use of executive action, particularly his recent moves to enact gun control and prevent millions of illegal immigrants from being deported.
The task force will “study the impact the increase in presidential and executive branch power has had on the ability of Congress” and look for legislative approaches to “restore the proper balance of powers.”  But Democrats expressed concerns that the task force could turn into a “partisan political witch hunt.”  “These efforts seem to many to be nothing more than political fishing expeditions designed not to get to the truth, but to energize the Republican party’s base voters in preparation for this year’s elections,” Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) said in a statement.

Hillary’s Emails Endangered CIA Operatives In The Field
By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN
Published on TheHillaryDaily.com on February 3, 2016
Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, non-secure email server housed in her Chappaqua basement resulted in the exposure of hundreds of classified documents to foreign hackers. Some of her emails contained highly classified information that endangered the lives of our spies.
According to the State Department Inspector General, 22 of Hillary’s emails totaling 38 pages included materials marked “HCS-O,” the most sensitive category reserved for information about clandestine CIA operatives in ongoing operations. These emails were so sensitive that they could not be released — even with the entire message redacted.   According to John Schindler, an intelligence analyst writing for The Observer,, “these classified emails could jeopardize “sources, methods, and lives…and exposed the Holy Grail items of American espionage such as the true names of Central Intelligence Agency intelligence officers serving overseas under cover,” Schindler added :”Worse, some of those exposed are serving under non-official cover.”
Schindler has confirmed the content of the emails and labeled them as “colossally damaging to our national security [that[has put lives at risk,” According to Schindler’s sources, the names of foreigners on the CIA payroll were also included, jeopardizing their cove — and their lives — if the material was hacked.  On her home-brewed server, the documents were unprotected and easily vulnerable to hackers. According to former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Hillary’s emails were probably hacked by China, Russia, and Iran.
Hillary’s response to this shocking disclosure by the Inspector General is vintage Clinton: there’s no problem because she “never sent or received any emails marked “classified.” To her, that’s the end of the discussion. All the attention to her emails and her private server by the FBI and by U.S. intelligence agencies is either unnecessary bureaucratic in-fighting or the right wing conspiracy trying to derail her candidacy. Nothing is her fault.
But it is her fault. She set up the secret server and she was careless in the handling of the most sensitive material. She put her “convenience” over the safety of our CIA agents. And, according to the Intelligence Community Inspector General, at least 2 emails were marked “Top Secret” when sent.  As for the purportedly “unmarked” classified information, it is absolutely NOT TRUE that classified material has to be marked – and Hillary knows it. It is irrelevant whether it was marked or not and State Department employees are taught that as soon as they begin to work. In fact, on the first day she took office as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton signed a mandatory “Classified Information Non-Disclosure Agreement” and swore to keep all classified materials confidential. That Agreement did not apply to only those document that were marked “Classified” or “Top Secret.”
The Agreement” defined what the term “classified” actually meant:  “As used in this Agreement, classified information is marked or UNMARKED” (To see a copy of the Agreement, Go Here!)

“They’ll Sue His Ass Off”: Donald Trump Blasts Ted Cruz Over Eligibility; Dirty Tricks

Tuesday, February 2, 2016: At a Trump campaign rally in Milford, NH, GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted opponent Senator Ted Cruz over his campaign’s dishonest tactics in Iowa, including his campaign sending out a message telling his supporters to tell Ben Carson’s supporters that Mr. Carson had dropped out of the race.

Trump also once again questioned Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be President and said if Cruz is the nominee, the democrats will ‘sue his ass off’.

A border patrol agent monitors Canada-U.S. border in Montana, which has 550 miles of largely unprotected border. The border continues along North Dakota, Washington, Idaho, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Maine, Ohio, New York and several other states.
Canada’s new Liberal prime minister plans to “fast track” the acceptance of thousands of Syrian refugees over the next few weeks and that has some in Congress worried about security at the mostly unpatrolled northern border.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took office Nov. 4 promising to take in no less than 25,000 Syrian refugees by Dec. 31 and up to 50,000 by the end of 2016. The government fell far short of its goal, admitting only 6,000 as of Dec. 31 and about 15,000 to date, but Trudeau’s administration now says it will meet the 25,000 goal by March 1.  Canada and the U.S. share the world’s largest undefended international border. It stretches more than 5,520 miles across 13 states over land and water. The International Peace Garden was opened in 1932 in Bottineau, North Dakota, and the famed Peace Arch in Blaine, Washington, was dedicated in 1921 to celebrate the fact that the two countries share not only miles of border but values based on freedom and democracy.
But that was before the Syrian civil war, the Arab Spring, and mass migration of millions of Muslims out of the Middle East and Africa into Europe and North America.  Read On>>>>>

You May Have Thought It, Now You Know HIllary is a Bought Socialist!!!

Soros Gives $6 Million To Save Hillary On Eve Of Iowa

Last May, Hillary Clinton said, “I will do everything I can to appoint Supreme Court justices who protect the right to vote and do not protect the right of billionaires to buy elections.” Yet on the eve of the Iowa caucus, liberal billionaire George Soros is hoping a $6 million donation to a super PAC supporting Clinton’s candidacy will be the difference maker in the Hawkeye State.

Why Is George Soros Donating So Much Money To Hillary Clinton?

  She Will Implement Socialist Policies         She Will Make Him Even Wealthier         They Agree On All Of The Issues

The Soros donation was given to Priorities USA Action, a Clinton-alligned super PAC. The PAC reported $36 million in the bank at the beginning of 2016.   The $6 million check from the billionaire follows a $1 million donation he previously gave the the group and another $1 million donation to another pro-Clinton super PAC American Bridge 21st Century, bringing the billionaire’s total to $8 million given to help elect Hillary Clinton.  Read On>>>>> http://dailycaller.com/2016/01/31/billionaire-to-the-rescue-soros-gives-6-million-to-save-hillary-on-eve-of-iowa/

 

The shooting and out right Murder of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum – A man who exited his vehicle with his hands in the air!

Published on Jan 28, 2016

This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum along Oregon Highway 395 near milepost 50 in Harney County. This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the FBI on 01/28/2016. Note regarding date/time stamp in the left corner of video: Pilots use Zulu Time, also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), when they fly. Zulu time is eight hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time (PST). Therefore, although this footage was taken on January 26, 2016 in Oregon, the date/time stamp on the video shows just after midnight January 27, 2016.

NOTE:  Sources told The Oregonian/OregonLive that Finicum and Ryan Bundy disobeyed orders to surrender and resisted arrest:  Watch very closely, Mr. Finicum exits the truck with his hands up in the air; is this resisting arrest? He is then shot in the side, reaches to the wound which would be a normal reaction, then other agent shoots him again, and then the agent comes out of the woods and kills him. This is outright Murder! 

He was hit twice, never showed a firearm why did the third agent have to kill him?

LaVoy Finicum

Rest In Peace knowing you did right.

WHY THE FBI IS ‘SUPER PISSED OFF’ AT THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE FOR ‘WEIGHING IN’ ON CLINTON INVESTIGATION

WHY THE FBI IS ‘SUPER PISSED OFF’ AT THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE FOR ‘WEIGHING IN’ ON CLINTON INVESTIGATION

On Friday White Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters some officials at the FBI have said Hillary Clinton is not a target of the current investigation. These latest comments by the Obama White House reportedly have FBI and Justice Department officials “Super Pissed Off.” Catherine Herridge reported: “That statement by Josh Earnest has got the back up of our contacts at the FBI and Justice Department for two reasons… They are SUPER PISSED OFF to use a technical term. Number one, Josh Earnest has absolutely no clearance or visibility in the FBI investigation. Number two, they say it really seems part of a troubling pattern from the White House because the president earlier said he did not see any national security implications to the Clinton emails and then we found out he had never been briefed.”
