Unlike her colleagues at the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, on Tuesday night, actually dug into the finer points behind the big bombshells revealed in the IRS scandal this week.
Invited on Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to discuss the revelations of a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer confirming the existence of Lois Lerner’s “missing” e-mails and the IRS’s destruction of her Blackberry (stories the networks through Wednesday morning have yet to touch) Attkisson also did a great job of explaining the conflict of interest going on at the DOJ.
LUBBOCK, Texas — Breitbart Texas has exclusively obtained a leaked document warning federal agents about an ISIS-related terrorism threat across the entire US-Mexico border. Though the document focuses on the Texas-Mexico border, Breitbart Texas has confirmed that federal agents across the entire US-Mexico border have received the ISIS terror warning.
As we’ve presented here, Texas Governor Rick Perry is being indicted on charges of abuse of power. We shared the irony and hypocrisy of this charge being brought forth by a Democrat Travis County DA, who was arrested and charged with DUI. Quite excellent video of her here. And of course we couldn’t ignore the greater hypocrisy of having a president who has conducted several unconstitutional unilateral executive actions — certainly an abuse of his powers.
There can be no debate that the indictment against Rick Perry is politically driven. Just like the “bridge gate” assault against New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was politically driven. And to that list we must now add an attack against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
The Washington Free Beacon yesterday reported on researchers at Indiana University, supported by a National Science Foundation grant, creating a database of “political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution” - called “Truthy”:
The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.
“This service could mitigate the diffusion of false and misleading ideas, detect hate speech and subversive propaganda, and assist in the preservation of open debate,” the grant said.
Neurosurgeon Ben Carson challenged civil rights activist Jesse Jackson to defend his contention that the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson was a racist “state execution,” declaring that the 18-year-old’s death has “nothing to do with race.”
Carson and Jackson appeared on “Fox News Sunday” to discuss the ongoing dissatisfaction within the black community over the death of Brown, which many see as a symptom of systematic discrimination against blacks — particularly by white police officers.
The horrible barbarism of ISIS is just starting to impact and affect Americans directly. Katie wrote up the grisly news yesterday that 40-year-old American journalist, James Wright Foley, was allegedly beheaded by the terrorist group. (I haven’t seen the video, nor do I intend to, but the carnage speaks for itself).
As of this writing, ISIS’ savage claims cannot be substantiated — but the administration is nonetheless “appalled” by these recent developments. Meanwhile, Al Qaeda’s newest ally now claims to have another American in captivity, and is threatening to kill him too if the U.S. doesn’t stop their ongoing and effective airstrike campaign against ISIS in northern Iraq.
Buried under the numerous scandals that have plagued the administration in the years since, at least one federal judge still wants to get to the bottom of a federal gun-walking program that led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010.
As CBS News reported, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives initiated an operation known as ‘Fast and Furious’ in 2009, allowing criminals to take possession of more than 2,000 dangerous weapons without proper governmental oversight or tracking. The following year, illegal immigrants carrying multiple weapons involved in the program fatally shot Terry near the Mexico border.
Why would anyone dislike Barack Obama? Could it be because of what he’s done in the White House? As you get a refresher on the national nightmare that has been Barack Obama’s presidency, keep in mind that the biggest difficulty in compiling it was limiting it to just 50 examples of corruption, dishonesty, and incompetence.
1) Because of Obama’s policies since he became President, 11,472,000 Americans have left the work force.
2) “Fewer Americans are at work today than in April 2000, even though the population since then has grown by 31 million.” — Mortimer Zuckerman
As we had reported earlier, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, angered by the presence of Bibles in Navy lodges, sent a letter to the Navy Exchange, demanding they be removed.
The Exchange complied, using established “lost-and-found procedures” to systemically remove all Bibles, which had been donated by Gideons International, the organization which donates Bibles to schools, hotels, prisons, and hospitals, according to their website.
