Do We Really Need Four More Years of This?

Remember this infamous NYT piece on then-Senator Barack Obama in September of 2008?
“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Mr. Obama told Patrick Gaspard, his political director, at the start of the 2008 campaign, according to The New Yorker. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m going to think I’m a better political director than my political director.”
Now fast forward to the current election cycle:
...let me start the discussion by showing you this video:

TIME TO FLUSH HILLARY: Number of Classified Emails Found on Clinton's Bathroom Server Climbs to 1,700

That steady drip, drip, drip sound you hear is not just the leaky faucet in Hillary's bathroom. It's also the repeated revelations that she compromised national security by maintaining a email private server to evade public and governmental scrutiny.

Today's release of 1,000 pages of emails revealed 84 new classified documents, bringing the total number of felony violations to nearly 1,700.

The State Department has released more than 1,000 new pages of Hillary Clinton’s emails... Eighty-one messages were classified, mostly at the lowest level of sensitivity. None was declared top secret.

The department has now released more than 45,000 pages of emails from the private account Clinton used as secretary of state... It plans to finish making her emails public on Feb. 29, a day before the critical Super Tuesday primaries.

SAY IT AIN'T SO: ISIS Affiliate Targeted Gun-Free Zone

By Institute for Legislative Action

NRA has been criticized by our opponents for contending that those seeking to wreak mass violence on innocents choose their targets based on the likelihood that they will meet armed resistance, and that armed citizens could assist in halting this type of violent attack. As part of their efforts, gun control activists and their allies in the media have frequently lampooned NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s astute remarks that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” The bankruptcy of this anti-gun position was exposed late last week when details from an FBI terrorism investigation revealed that an alleged ISIS supporter chose the target for a planned terrorist attack because it was a gun-free zone.

Police Confounded Over Motive After Dude Named Mohammad Goes on Slashing Rampage at Ohio Deli

By The Tower

A machete-wielding man stormed a central Ohio restaurant owned by an Israeli on Thursday evening, injuring four people before being shot dead by police.

Authorities identified the suspected attacker as Mohamed Barry, a 30-year-old of Somali background who police say may have traveled to the United Arab Emirates in 2012. The FBI, which has joined the investigation, is probing whether the assault was an instance of homegrown extremism motivated by the mistaken impression that the restaurant owner was Jewish, according to NBC News. Security officials are worried that the incident is the same sort of “lone wolf terrorist attacks they’re trying to stop,” CBS News added.

QOTD: "Of [the Gang of Eight], Donald has contributed money to five. 3 Democrats(!) and 2 Republicans. They were Schumer (5 times!), Durbin, Graham, McCain & Menendez.

And what did Trump expect to get for his money? Because don’t forget, it was Trump that said he put money into candidates so he could get what he wanted. It was Trump that said he was part of the problem. His donation to Graham was in 2014, a year AFTER the Gang of 8 bill was proposed, so I guess he felt he got his money’s worth.

Did he change his mind since he made these donations? Always possible. This is a guy whose entire persona is wrapped up in changing his mind on a whim. I wonder if it was around the same time he changed his mind on the idea that Romney lost the election because he was too hard on illegal immigration?

But back to the point, what credibility does Donald Trump have to criticize Rubio’s membership in the Gang of 8?" --Ben Howe

DONALD TRUMP WANTS YOUR HOUSE: Because You're a F***ing Loser Standing in the Way of a Casino Parking Lot

By Star Parker

Donald Trump is running a pretty successful presidential campaign saying that he wants to "Make America Great Again."

But he seems to have very little interest in what exactly it is that makes America great.

This paradox is very much on display when Trump talks about eminent domain, the authority given to government in the constitution to take private property for public use.

Trump says, "Eminent domain is wonderful."

The Fifth Amendment to our Constitution tells us: "No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

The key question is, what is "public use"?

DEVASTATING: The Clintons' Mind-Boggling Damage to National Security

By Major Ed. Coet [Ret.]

I am a retired US Army Intelligence Officer. In my last job in the army I was the Chief of the Human Intelligence Branch for the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany. In that capacity I was also the Designated Program Manager for a Special Access Program (SAP) like the SAP that Hillary Clinton is alleged to have compromised in the most recent State Department Inspector General report to Congress and which has been widely reported in the news. Here is what I personally know about SAP's and what I can attest to in an unclassified forum:

1. The names of each SAP are themselves classified Top Secret because the information within the SAP are far and above Top Secret.

QOTD: "I can’t get over the reluctance Democratic voters have to embrace Hillary Clinton as their nominee.

Here is President Obama’s former secretary of State, wife to the forty-second president and twice-elected senator from New York, and she ties in Iowa and loses by double digits in New Hampshire to a septuagenarian Vermont socialist.

There’s also an enthusiasm gap at work here—Republican turnout is up in both Iowa and New Hampshire, suggesting that GOP voters have had it after eight years of Obama and are ready for change. Clinton is a candidate of the past, she has no discernible message, she is compromised ethically and under investigation by the FBI. This is the candidate Democrats want to put forth in November?" --Matthew Continetti
