More Petraeus Punishment Looms as Hilly Evades Scrutiny 
Defense Secretary Ash Carter is weighing whether to add to retired General David Petraeus's punishment for the latter's confessed  mishandling of classified information. The Pentagon could demote Petraeus, stripping him of one of his four stars — a move that could cost Petraeus not only hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost pension money but deal yet another blow to his once-sterling reputation as one of the most brilliant military men of this generation. His "surge" saved Iraq — until Barack nObama abandoned it. According to The Daily Beast's initial report, Carter is seeking to "to send a message that even men of Petraeus's fame and esteemed reputation are not immune to punishment." But it's more likely the nObama administration leveling retribution for a commander who has criticized nObama's strategy. As Investor's Business Daily put it, "The real goal is a Chicago-style warning flare to any retiring military to keep your mouth shut. And don't testify before the Benghazi committee, as Petraeus just did."
          Equal application of justice is a welcome idea, but will the same level of punishment and scrutiny apply to another famous person who happens to be running for president? A newly disclosed letter from intelligence Inspector General Charles McCullough reveals that Hilly Clinton had "several dozen emails containing classified information determined by the [intelligence community] element to be at the CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET/SAP levels." SAP stands for "special access programs, and that information is even more sensitive than "top secret." Some 1,300 classified emails have so far been discovered. There's no way Clinton didn't know exactly what she was doing, and her actions did far more damage to national security than Petraeus's. She's the one who might best preserve nObama's legacy, but we still think it's possible she'll be indicted by the FBI, and that her candidacy is serving as a placeholder for Joe loose lips-Biden or Elizabeth Warren at the Democrat convention.  -The Patriot Post

 SCOTUS to Review Obama's Unilateral Amnesty 
Finally, after a year of legal hurdles in the lower courts, the Supreme Court will determine the constitutionality of Barack nObama's unilateral amnesty. On Tuesday, the justices agreed to hear United States v. Texas, the subject of two executive actions. "One, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), would halt deportations and offer work permits to the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent legal residents," The Hill explains. "The other would expand nObama's 2012 program — the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative — which provides the same protections to some high-achieving illegal immigrants brought to the country before age 16. The expanded program would simply extend DACA eligibility to a greater number of people." 
          Twenty-six states sued to stop nObama's amnesty shortly after it went into effect. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen issued a temporary injunction  last February, correctly accusing nObama of exceeding his executive authority. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit agreed in November and upheld the injunction. But the Supreme Court will ultimately have the final say. The timing is interesting to say the least. The Hill notes, "If the justices had declined to [take up nObama's amnesty] in the next round of cases, it would have solidified the Fifth Circuit's injunction through the end of nObama's White House tenure." Since a Republican president could undo these actions as early as next January, the justices' decision to take up the case leaves open the possibility that they have enough support to uphold nObama's amnesty. The administration's track record in cases regarding executive overreach, however, suggests otherwise. We'll find out by June.   -The Patriot Post

 Iran Embarrasses U.S. in Prisoner Swap 
In a twist of statecraft, the United States waited until the five Iranian-Americans held prisoner by Iran were safely on an airplane out of Iran before slapping sanctions against the country for test-firing ballistic missiles — sanctions that prevent 11 organizations and individuals associated with the tests from using U.S. banks. But it sure wasn't the diplomatic victory nObama wants us to believe. Iran still gets its $150 billion in unfrozen money thanks to the nuclear deal. And the administration left a man behind: Former FBI agent Robert Levinson still remains in Iranian custody. Furthermore, the administration claims it learned about Levinson's fate the same way nObama learns about so many other major news events: through the news.
          State Department spokesman John Kirby said, "Unfortunately, so many other people found out about it through press reports because the Iranians leaked the information early, too early for us to have made the phone calls and notifications that we wanted to make. Believe me, nobody is happy about the way that went down. That's not the way that we wanted it to happen." In the same way Iran humiliated nObama when it broadcasted the images of detained U.S. sailors when their boats drifted into Iranian waters last week, the country is trying to embarrass the United States by broadcasting news of Levinson so that the U.S. couldn't notify Levinson's family in a respectful way. The missile tests and failed swap of Levinson could be another sign that Iran's hard-line leaders are marginalizing moderates. Iran will hold parliamentary elections soon, and of the 12,000 candidates, nearly two-thirds of the candidates, the majority of them moderate, were disqualified by Iran's Guardian Council. Even Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's grandson was disqualified because the candidate advocating for reform missed a test into his knowledge of Islamic law.  -The Patriot Post

Kent State Professor for Supporting ISIS

{nicedeb.wordpress.com} ~ According to Fox News, “an independent probe” turned up some “disturbing posts” on his Facebook page “praising Usama bin Laden and urging Al Qaeda fighters to merge with the black-clad terror army.”... “Kent State is fully cooperating with the FBI,” said University Spokesman Eric Mansfield. “As this is an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment.” Mansfield would not comment on whether or not Pino would continue to teach at the university as he’s investigated by the Joint Terrorism Task Force for supporting ISIS and recruiting students to join the terror group. However a Kent State spokesperson told FoxNews.com that Pino is still teaching classes.      https://nicedeb.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/fbi-and-dhs-investigating-...
Video:  Here is a video from 2010 of Pino in full taqiyya mode – sounding more like a hippy-drippy, new-age Gaia-worshiper than an ISIS fanboi.

nObama Continues Caving
to Iran While Taking Credit for Diplomacy

.
.
{aim.org} ~ The mainstream media cannot stand that the film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, in depicting the violence in Benghazi and the heroism of the Global Response Staff (GRS) has a straightforward common-sense message... Instead, reporters like Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post see fit to mock that heroism, and even suggest that President nObama’s latest appeasement to Iran deserves equal Hollywood fame. “But, as Secretary of State John F. hanoi-Kerry secured the release of American prisoners in Iran just hours after ‘13 Hours’ opened, the movie’s simplistic, shooting-good-talking-bad moral scheme began to ring impressively false,” argues Hornaday. “Maybe one day, State Department envoy Brett McGurk, who led the team that negotiated the release, will get his own big-screen blockbuster, even if it doesn’t feature prominent biceps, heavy ordnance and a careening SUV with its wheels on fire.” A key message of 13 Hours, and the Benghazi scandal, is that the GRS’s gun-toting heroism wouldn’t have been necessary if President nObama and Secretary of State Hilly Clinton hadn’t been derelict in their duty to secure the U.S. Special Mission Compound beforehand, or to provide military support to the Americans once the shooting started.

{news.usni.org} ~ While terming North Korea’s most recent nuclear tests “alarming and provoking,” the director of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency said he doesn’t believe they show any increase in Pyongyang’s technical capabilities... Speaking Tuesday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think-tank, Vice Adm. James Syring said the United States’ ballistic missile defense (BMD) posture is unchanged for now. The agency will, however, “continue to watch it closely and continue to watch North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s actions with scrutiny.” He added in answer to a question on the North Korean tests: “I believe we are absolutely on the right path to stay ahead of that threat.” In answer to another question about agency priorities, Syring said the Redesigned Kill Vehicle is “the necessary and first step” before moving onto the Multi-Object Kill Vehicle. He said one question the agency faces is “how do you improve reliability” of the kill vehicles “for decades to come?” He said the three-contractor teaming on the project “has worked well” and the first flight test, without an intercept, is scheduled for 2018.        http://news.usni.org/2016/01/19/missile-defense-agency-head-syring-...

Arms for hostages, the sequel

Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry (L) meets with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on what is expected to be “implementation day,” the day the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verifies that Iran has met all conditions under the nuclear deal, in Vienna January 16, 2016. 
.
{aei.org} ~ As the United States and the international community lift sanctions on Iran and release to Tehran upwards of $100 billion in frozen assets, the Islamic Republic has announced that it has released four Iranian-American hostages... UPDATE: A fifth American, Matthew Trevithick, is also being released by Iran, U.S. officials have reported. President nObama and Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry might celebrate the release as a diplomatic coup, never mind that the deal abandons Robert Levinson, the longest-held hostage, but it’s worth remembering what happened the last time the United States effectively bribed Iran to release hostages. There is broad consensus today that the Reagan-era “Arms for Hostages” scheme was a strategic and moral mistake. Few people remember its genesis, however: the desire to cultivate relations with relative moderates and pragmatists in the Iranian power structure in order to privilege them relative to the hardliners. In other words, the logic behind the Reagan-era strategy was exactly what nObama’s team would embrace three decades later.        http://www.aei.org/publication/arms-for-hostages-the-sequel/?utm_so...

Evidence Growing that a
Benghazi Stand-Down Order was Given

{lidblog.com} ~ Evidence seems to building to confirm the accusation that troops were given an order to “stand down” and not help the Americans under attack on 9/11/12... Lost amid the recent stories about the Trump/Cruz pissing war and Hilly losing her lead over Larry David I mean Bernie Sanders, was a major Benghazi story. Evidence from the House Select committee and from investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson seems to confirm the accusation that troops were given an order to “stand down” and not help the Americans under attack on 9/11/12. The Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), was interviewed by Boston Herald Radio  on Wednesday and related that a number of witnesses testified that a stand-down order was given to military assets in proximity to Benghazi the night of the terrorist attack on 9/11/12. He also acknowledged that there were witnesses who denied a stand down order was given. I would like to see those men step forward and say so. Then face the ones who said there was an order to stand down.

nObama and GOP Unleash
“Community Schools” to Replace Parents
Alex Newman
.
.
{thenewamerican.com} ~ Parents, beware — Big Brother is coming for your kids. Buried deep inside the mammoth “bipartisan” so-called “education” legislation approved last month, dubbed the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA), is a radical expansion of what the statute refers to as “full-service community schools.”... The controversial institutions, more accurately described as parental replacement centers, seek to oversee every aspect of your child's life, ranging from their “mental health” and “well being” to nutrition and even dentistry. You are in the crosshairs, too, as the nObama administration defines parents as “equal partners” in child rearing. And those are just some of the many unconstitutional provisions in the bill and beyond that aim to turn government schools into parents, and parents into pariahs.   In short, an increasingly out-of-control Uncle Sam — with support from the leadership of both major political parties — wants to raise your child. And with the support of virtually every education-related special interest group you can think of, the latest federal education statute, passed by the GOP Congress and cheerfully signed as a “miracle” by nObama last month, is among the primary means by which the feds plan to further undermine and attack your role as parents. The implications of the accelerating assaults on families, parental rights, constitutionally limited government, the future of America's children, and the future of the nation itself cannot be overstated.

The nObama administration is placing a moratorium on most new leases for coal mining on public lands
.
{libertyinvestor.com} The nObama administration announced Friday it will place a moratorium on most new leases for coal mining on public lands... while the Interior Department conducts a review of such leasing and considers plans to overhaul it. The department will review the environmental and public health impacts of coal production on federal lands and “how to ensure American taxpayers are earning a fair return for the use of their public resources,” according to the department. The review is expected to take three years, so that is how long the moratorium is expected to last, though a new president that takes office next year could change that policy.  http://libertyinvestor.com/obama-halts-most-new-coal-mining-leases-...

nObama May Have Gone Too Far:

Judge Rules against Obama’s
Use of Executive Privilege on Fast and Furious
TIM BROWN

.
{sonsoflibertymedia.com} ~ It appears that Barack Hussein nObama Soetoro Sobarkah has once again acted wrong in the keeping of records about the notorious and criminal Operation Fast and Furious from Congress by executive privilege... On Tuesday, US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson determined that nObama’s use of executive privilege was not necessarily one of impropriety, but said that in light of other information the Justice Department had already released could not be sustained. “This ruling is not predicated on a finding that the withholding was intended to cloak wrongdoing on the part of government officials or that the withholding itself was improper,” Judge Jackson wrote. “There is no need to balance the need against the impact that the revelation of any record could have on candor in future executive decision making, since any harm that might flow from the public revelation of the deliberations at issue here has already been self-inflicted,” Jackson added. “The Department itself has already publicly revealed the sum and substance of the very material it is now seeking to withhold. Since any harm that would flow from the disclosures sought here would be merely incremental, the records must be produced.”        http://sonsoflibertymedia.com/2016/01/judge-rules-against-obamas-us...

Seeing Bigots Under Every Rock
 David Limbaugh
.
.
{townhall.com} ~ Remember when universities used to encourage freedom of academic inquiry and were seen as intellectual and social preparation for the transition into adulthood? I know; that was a long time ago -- before the left infected these institutions.
.
Everyone knows about the leftward slant of most American universities: their monolithic biases; their bent toward politicizing their curricula; and their practice of indoctrinating students. But increasingly the results of leftist community organizing -- the toxins of political correctness -- are seeping into university disciplinary rules.
.
This deplorable trend has concerned me for years, but it is particularly disturbing when it is occurring at my alma mater, the University of Missouri.
.
I'm not talking about Mizzou's recent racial controversy but reports that the university is now encouraging its students to file a report any time they witness or experience a "bias incident." It would be one thing if they were talking about true incidents of racial or some other form of discrimination, but it appears it's much more expansive than that.
.
According to the university's online statement, a "bias incident is an act of intolerance which is committed against any person, group or property and which discriminates, stereotypes, harasses or excludes anyone based on" any of some 20 different categories, from race to religion to gender expression, and yes, even physical appearance.
.
Look out, social fraternities. You better make sure no one overhears your actives talking to pledges.
.
Does it ever bother you that liberals seem to be preoccupied with these kinds of things -- as if they just sit around stewing about how they might be offended?
.
Do you think it helps society for academic institutions and government to shove these things in our faces all the time and invite us to feel offended at the drop of a hat? Shouldn't we aspire to colorblindness, not look for slurs at every opportunity?
.
Is it good for students that institutions of higher learning proactively try to turn them into thin-skinned, paranoid wimps? Isn't it bad enough that they offer classes largely devoted to convincing students that men hate and exploit women, whites routinely abuse blacks, the rich are evil and exploit the poor, cops are the enemy and Christians are science-averse Neanderthals -- as well as other types of poisonous bilge?
.
I am not discounting actual incidents of racial bias where people are harmed. But I don't think it's healthy for our institutions to pressure students to see racial or other types of prejudice at every turn. Why pit people against each other? Why stoke people's suspicions of each other? Won't that lead to distrust instead of reduce it?
.
College students are being groomed for the workforce where they will encounter all kinds of challenges. Should our schools train them not to handle even minor perceived sleights on their own but instead hone their skills as tattletales? I suppose it's not that surprising, considering that progressives advocate cradle-to-grave dependency in other respects.
.
The progressive mindset thrives on generating angst between different groups. Along those lines, Katherine Timpf has observed in National Review Online that the university is encouraging not just alleged victims of "bias" to report these incidents but also others who witness them, even if the alleged victim doesn't feel victimized. The school might as well supply volunteer student thought policemen with uniforms to troll around campus to chill speech.
.
It appears that this nanny-state administration wants students to report, for example, teasing based on physical appearance. It may not be nice, but does this rise to the level of a disciplinary matter?
.
Indeed, "name-calling" is listed on the form as an "act of intolerance." The instructions go so far as to say that "extreme examples of bias incidents -- regardless of severity -- can be reported using this form." Regardless of severity? Wow.
.
There's another problem with these speech and conduct codes. Those who promulgate and enforce them often have their own biases and generally don't recognize certain groups as worthy of protection. Do you think, for instance, your typical university administration would consider the dissing of Christianity or conservatism actionable violations of the code?
.
These types of overzealous regulations trivialize actual incidents of discrimination and harm the very groups they purport to help as well as society as a whole.
.
Maybe the people obsessing over "intolerance" are projecting their own malcontented worldview and would be better served, and would serve others better, if they would just chill out and back off a little bit. Students aren't as helpless or as prejudiced as progressives enjoy depicting them.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
