Top 11 Emails From The Final Batch Of Clinton’s Private Server Emails

By America Rising

Today the last batch of Clinton emails from her illicit, private server were released by the State Department. Of the 1,723 released today, 261 were found to contain classified information. Those 261 new classified emails brings the final tally to an astounding 2,079 emails held on Clinton’s unsecure server that now are said to contain classified information. In the 261 classified emails, 19 contained “secret” information. That also means that this batch includes the largest number of secret emails in any tranche.

CONFIRMED: : Obama Sent Weapons to Muslim Terrorists in Benghazi

By Daniel Greenfield

One of the few interesting items in the New York Times' whitewash of Hillary and Obama's illegal Libyan war is the confirmation of weapons shipments.

Obama ultimately took her side, according to the administration officials who described the debate. After he signed a secret document called a presidential finding, approving a covert operation, a list of approved weaponry was drawn up. The shipments arranged by the United States and other Western countries generally arrived through the port of Benghazi and airports in eastern Libya, a Libyan rebel commander said.

Congressmen Have No Idea Why Special Operators Have To Pay Out Of Pocket For Basic Gear

By Jonah Bennett

For reasons still unclear, elite special operators are often let down by their respective services and have to pay out of pocket for the most basic gear.

Private military suppliers have started to notice this phenomenon. During a panel discussion on Capitol Hill Thursday, heads of supply companies met with Congress to discuss the shortages and raise the issue with Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, Stars and Stripes reports.

THE NEW CALIFORNIA CRIME WAVE: Democrat Success Story #78,012

By John Perazzo

Something amazing has happened in California. First, a brief background: Crime rates across the state, after a long period of steady decline, had reached fifty-year lows in 2014. Then, that November, a 60 percent majority of California voters—presumably incapable of accepting such good news without a measure of collective guilt—decided that it would be a really enlightened idea to pass Proposition 47, a ballot initiative bearing the cheery name “The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act.” The purpose of this measure was to downgrade many types of drug possession and property crimes from felonies (punishable by more than a year in prison) to misdemeanors (which often entail no prison time at all). For the benefit of squeamish skeptics, the self-assured proponents of Prop 47 condescended to explain that these reduced penalties would not only alleviate prison overcrowding, but would also make California's streets safer by placing drug offenders into warm-and-fuzzy treatment and counseling programs, rather than into disagreeable prison cells. If you think this sounds like a familiar old tune, you're quite correct. It was #1 on the left-wing hit parade throughout the 1960s, when it became the theme song of skyrocketing crime rates across the United States. And now the Golden Oldie is back, in the Golden State.

QOTD: "Obama issues a new initiative—and the nation snoozes. He wastes the day on the golf links—and the nation snoozes. He smears his critics, invites a rapper to the White House whose latest album cover has a dead white judge lying in front of the White House—and the nation snoozes. He cozies up to America’s enemies and snubs our friends—and the nation snoozes. For the nth time, he blusters about closing down Guantanamo—and the nation snoozes. He opens the border even wider to welcome in more illegal aliens and future constituents—and the nation snoozes. Lame duckestry means not even being able to wake up your opponents.

There is so far no Obama legacy, except the creation of Donald Trump, a $20 trillion debt and zero interest rates—and the gift of flat energy prices that came despite not because of Obama’s efforts. Almost every major bureaucracy is awash in scandal or charges of incompetence. The common theme of the disasters at the GSA, EPA, ICE, IRS, NASA, Secret Service, and VA is ideological subversion and ingrained hostility to meritocracy. Would anyone be surprised that another government official pled the 5th, created fake email personas, resigned at 5 PM on a Friday afternoon, declared a foremost mission Muslim outreach, or withheld subpoenaed documents?" --Victor Davis Hanson

By Julia Hahn

At Donald Trump’s Sunday rally at Madison City Stadium, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s own constituents—two displaced Disney workers—publicly denounced Rubio for prioritizing the interests of his big business donors over the interests of his own constituents.

Dena Moore and Leo Perrero were two Disney workers who were informed that they were going to be laid off during the holiday season of 2014. They—along with scores of their colleagues—were told that before they were let go, they’d be forced to train their low-skilled foreign replacements brought in on H-1B visas. Earlier this week, Perrero testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the humiliation he was forced to endure by training his foreign replacement. While Donald Trump has called on Disney to hire back all of these workers and has pledged to end H-1B job theft as President, Sen. Marco Rubio has pushed to expand the controversial H-1B program—he has introduced two bills that would dramatically boost the issuances of H-1Bs. As recently as last year, Rubio introduced a bill—endorsed by Disney’s CEO Bob Iger via his immigration lobbying firm—that would triple the issuances of H-1Bs. Disney is one of Sen. Rubio’s top financial backers—having donated more than $2 million according to Open Secrets.


Dear Influential Conservative Blogger [Ed.: Heh.],

Perhaps the best chance we have for the Presidential election 2016 is not Donald Trump, but rather a ticket with Ted Cruz for President and Marco Rubio for Vice President. I believe their combined poll ratings are higher than those of Trump.

Ted Cruz for President can be contacted at

The campaign's phone number is 713-353-4330.

If Ted Cruz is still in the race after Super Tuesday, but has not yet made Rubio his running mate, his campaign can be reached by snail mail at:

PO Box 25376
Houston, TX 77265

Flush with Obama cash, Iran awards financial grants to families of Palestinian terrorists

By The Tower

Iran will pay $7,000 to the families of Palestinian terrorists who were killed while carrying out attacks, and $30,000 to families of terrorists whose houses were demolished by Israel, the Iranian ambassador to Lebanon announced on Wednesday.

“The decision firstly includes giving an amount worth $7,000 to every family of a martyr of the intifada in Jerusalem,” said ambassador Mohammad Fathali during a Beirut press conference.

CATACLYSM: 30 Blocks of Democrat Governance

By Jim Quinn

“Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” – H.L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy

I’ve written dozens of articles about the 30 Blocks of Squalor over the years. The 30 blocks are essentially from 69th Street to 39th Street encompassing the wretched potholed route from unsafe Upper Darby through the killing fields of West Philly. The fine union government workers in the Streets Department have consistently maintained Chestnut Street in a constant state of disrepair. Not that drivers notice.

QOTD: "I've spent the last fortnight in a country where on illegal immigration everyone electorally viable is a hard-ass. That's to say, there's a bipartisan consensus that anyone attempting to enter the country without authorization should be warehoused in a detention camp – not in Australia but offshore, either on Nauru, a pile of guano that fancies itself a nation-state, or on Manos Island, which belongs to Papua New Guinea. It's the equivalent of Trump imprisoning Mexicans in a camp in the Dominican Republic. After years in detention, the migrants are generally either returned whence they came or resettled in a third country. Whatever squeamishness the Aussie Labor Party might feel about this is subject to the compelling political arithmetic that the voters are overwhelmingly at ease with it.

In America, by contrast, there is a cozy bipartisan consensus between the Democrat Party and the Donor Party that untrammeled mass unskilled immigration now and forever is a good thing. The Dems get voters, the Donors get cheap labor. The Dems have the better deal, but over on the GOP side the Stupid Party is too stupid to realize that suicide in slow motion leads to the same place as one swift sure slice from Isis.

So it was obvious that the moment someone proposed to rupture this corrupt and squalid arrangement that there would be takers for it – particularly among America's downwardly mobile lower middle class who, as a price for supporting the Donor Party, are supposed to put up with stagnant wages and diminished economic opportunity as a permanent feature of life.

The Five Must-Read Emails Of The Latest Clinton Email Dump

By America Rising

Today the State Department released the penultimate batch of emails gleaned from Hillary Clinton’s illicit, private email server. The release featured another 88 emails that the government has determined contained classified information. Those 88 emails bring the total number of Clinton’s email that contain classified information to at least 1,818.

While the State Department’s release of Clinton’s emails is winding down, the amount of damaging information found in Clinton’s emails certainly isn’t. The latest tranche of Clinton emails spotlight many of questionable aspects of her State Department tenure.

The biggest bombshell of the batch is an email from Neera Tanden that exposes Clinton’s faulty approach to email security. Others, such as one from Wendy Sherman, highlight the failed policies Clinton pursued at the State Department. There is also a damaging exchange about trade that reminds people of the many flip-flops Clinton has made this campaign.

See below for the five best new emails from this latest batch:

IN ONE WORD: Why Rubio Can't Win

By CR Wire

Tonight on his radio program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin explained why Marco Rubio is running to lose, the way he’s conducting his campaign.


Marco Rubio will not win the Republican nomination because of one word: amnesty.

Rubio’s record as senator, his record as a pro-amnesty Republican, will prevent him from beating Donald Trump outright, Levin says.

The Rubio strategy, Levin says, appears to be destroy Ted Cruz, run for second place, and then try to win a brokered convention. This strategy gives Trump a free ride to victory.

And so, Levin argues, Rubio is playing spoiler for conservatism in this race.

In addition to banning Stacy McCain's Twitter account for the high crime of offending feminists, the social network's ill-named "Trust and Safety Council" has also banned the the Twitter account used to promote his book, Sex Trouble.

TOP 5 REASONS TO IMPEACH: IRS Chief John "One Step Shy of Perjury" Koskinen

By Sarah Feldspauch

Taxpayers deserve a transparent, accountable government, starting with Commissioner John Koskinen’s complacency in uncovering the truth in the Lois Lerner conservative targeting scandal. The agency has continually displayed extraordinary lack of responsibility.

Koskinen has also proven to be incapable of correctly handling taxpayer dollars, protecting them from identity theft, fraud, and even lied to the American people and Congress. Clearly, the agency is in desperate need of reform and new leadership.

The following are the top five reasons to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen:

QOTD: "On Friday, Breitbart News published an exclusive interview with Chris Crane, an ICE officer of 13 years and a U.S. Marine, in which Crane said Sen. Rubio treated law enforcement “like absolute trash” during his push to pass his 2013 amnesty bill. On Saturday, Rubio appeared on Fox News and implicitly denounced Crane and his service to the country. “He’s not an ICE official, he’s head of a union,” Rubio said angrily.

Miller, who worked for Sen. Sessions as Rubio sought to push the Gang of Eight amnesty bill through the Senate, explained that: “Chris Crane was a central figure in stopping the Gang of Eight immigration bill from becoming law. He did that in his capacity as the ICE Council President for America’s nearly 6,000 ICE officers and personnel. What that means is that the 6,000 ICE officers and personnel cast a ballot to pick one from among their own ranks to represent them nation-wide… He [Crane] was a central figure in exposing the Gang of Eight bill and stopping it.”

Miller explained that rather than rebutting ICE officer Crane’s specific accusations, Rubio responded by attacking Crane’s integrity... Rubio’s treatment of law enforcement and his implicit denunciation of Crane “really has become one of the central issues of the 2016 race,” Miller said." --Julia Hahn

SCORCHED EARTH FOR A GENERATION: President Hillary and the End of the Second Amendment

By Wayne LaPierre

“Only Eight Years of President Hillary Can Take the Supreme Court Away From Conservatives”

That headline on the Daily Beast website succinctly lays out the devastating threat to our liberty that defines the coming November elections—demanding that we as NRA members mobilize as never before.

You can bet that a Hillary Clinton Supreme Court will make sure to carry out her threat to “take back the Second Amendment” and that the protections of the First Amendment on free assembly and free speech—as exercised to perfection by NRA members—will be erased.

That entire progressive agenda is in danger if they “don’t get a lock on the White House and pack the bench for a generation.”

An Open Letter to Senator Sanders

By David Brock

Dear Senator Sanders,

I’m writing today to urge that you and your campaign immediately halt all negative campaigning against our party’s prospective candidate for the Presidency, Secretary Hillary Clinton.

After first pledging to wage a positive campaign for President, you and your campaign have for weeks now engaged in a relentlessly ugly barrage of false character attacks against Mrs. Clinton, including running negative TV advertising of the sort you promised you never would.

Following the Nevada caucuses, you had the opportunity to live up to the self-professed ideals of your own campaign by delivering an aspirational message of systemic change, but instead you chose to ramp up spurious negative attacks against the winner of those caucuses.

AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH: The Democrats's Phony Gun Violence "Epidemic"

By Richard Larsen

On the first day of the year, President Obama declared that he could “no longer sit around and do nothing about the epidemic of gun violence” in this country. The New York Times in December published a front-page editorial titled “End the Gun Epidemic in America.” But do we really have an “epidemic,” and at what point does hyperbole damage rational debate and resolution?

To illustrate how hyperbolic the notion of “epidemic of gun violence” is, let’s look at what real epidemics look like. Typhus, which spread throughout Europe during the Thirty Years War in the 1600s claimed over 10 million lives. It resurfaced during the 20th century, and caused several million deaths during WWI in Eastern Europe.

QOTD: "I welcome Ms. Seymour’s retirement and hope that it will represent an important turning point at an agency plagued with mismanagement and negligence at the highest level. Last year, OPM fell victim to the worst cyber-attack in United States’ history largely due to internal failure within the agency to implement proper cybersecurity measures. Throughout the course of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s investigation into the hack, it came to light that OPM officials ignored an Inspector General’s cybersecurity recommendations, leaving the personal information of millions of federal employees, members of the U.S. military, and intelligence officials vulnerable to a hack.

The OPM attack was a failure at every level and will have security implications for decades to come. I look forward to a new day ahead at OPM and am eager to work to ensure that the necessary measures are taken to prevent a data breach of this magnitude from ever happening again" --Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)
