 Hilly's Continuing Saga of Malfeasance 
Anyone who works in the intelligence community, defense industry or any other capacity that requires a secret clearance or higher knows that there is information that must be safeguarded at all costs. A breach of security, mishandling of classified information and failure to follow policies results in termination, fines and/or imprisonment. For the average worker, these penalties are enforced rather quickly. Yet in the case of Hilly Clinton, this is not the case — at least not yet.
          The FBI's investigation into Hilly's malfeasance has most recently revealed that her private server contained not just classified material, but also information that an intelligence agency has identified as being extremely sensitive and "HCS-O." According to two sources who were not authorized to speak on the record, this is the code used for reporting on human intelligence sources in ongoing operations.
          This new evidence, along with the Special Access Programs (SAP) that were identified by the FBI last week, is very damaging for our national security. Dan Maguire, former Special Operations strategic planner for Africom, states, "There are people's lives at stake. Certainly in an intel SAP, if you're talking about sources and methods, there may be one person in the world that would have access to the type of information contained in that SAP."
          Despite the mounting evidence against her, Clinton continues to lie about her deliberate mishandling of classified information. In fact, during a recent interview on "Meet the Press," she insisted again, "I never sent or received any material marked 'classified.' I cannot control what the Republicans leak and what they are contending." So it's the Republicans' fault (vast right-wing conspiracy, anyone?), it's all made up and they are only doing it to derail her campaign for the presidency.
          In the Democrats' town hall Monday night, she repeated her claim of innocence: "[N]othing I did was wrong. It was not in any way prohibited."
          Both of her claims are outright lies.  -The Patriot Post

 Cruz hits Trump hard in Iowa -  Dallas Morning News: “Entering the Iowa homestretch under attack and still overshadowed by Donald Trump, Ted Cruz hit back Monday by painting the billionaire as a phony conservative and evangelical. And he projected confidence that he’ll finish strong in the first test of the 2016 contestnext Monday night. He asserted that Trump supports taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and “Bernie Sanders-style socialized medicine.’ And he launched a coordinated effort to portray Trump as a ‘New York liberal.’”  -Fox News

 nOBAMACARE MISSES MARK 
NYT: “When the Affordable Care Act was drafted, the Congressional Budget Office expected people to sign up quickly for new health insurance. Now, two years into the law, it’s clear that progress is going to be slower. The nObama administration acknowledged as much in late 2014, and again in October, when it presented its own modest predictions. Monday, the budget office also agreed, slashing its 2016 estimate by close to 40 percent. … The new budget and economic outlook now predicts that about 13 million people will get their health insurance through the nObamacare market places this year, down from an earlier estimate of 21 million. The budget office’s estimates for future years won’t be released until March, but it seems reasonable to assume they will also come down. Currently, the 2017 estimate is 24 million.”

Chinese Military Revamps Cyber Warfare,

{freebeacon.com} ~ A recent Chinese military reorganization is increasing the danger posed by People’s Liberation Army cyber warfare and intelligence units that recently were consolidated into a new Strategic Support Force... The announcement of the military reorganization made on Dec. 31 by the Chinese government provided few details of what has changed for three military intelligence units formerly under the now-defunct General Staff Department. However, U.S. officials and China analysts say the major cyber warfare and intelligence-gathering groups were elevated into the new Strategic Support Force, a military service-level force equal in standing to China’s army, navy, air force and missile services.        http://freebeacon.com/national-security/chinese-military-revamps-cy...

{freebeacon.com} ~ The business arm of billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer’s political advocacy network worked behind the scenes with senior administration officials to undermine a study by a federally commissioned group that criticized environmental regulations, internal emails show... Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), a Steyer-funded trade association, briefed senior administration officials on ways to preemptively debunk an anticipated study questioning EPA regulations’ impacts on the U.S. power grid. Leading AEE’s effort was an executive who just months earlier had left a prominent position at the EPA. However, the agency says that he did not meet the statutory definition of a “senior official” and hence was not subject to lobbying restrictions placed on recently departed federal employees.  http://freebeacon.com/issues/emails-show-steyer-epa-coordination-to...

Hostages, Hostages, and Other Deals
Dr. Michael Ledeen
.
.
{aim.org} ~ Ransoming hostages is nothing new, indeed it’s routine for most countries and happens with increasing frequency for the U.S. Government and American corporations... The current minifuror over the “swap” of 7 Iranian criminals (plus lifting sanctions on 14 others) for 5 American hostages is based on the entirely understandable desire to avoid the sinking feeling that comes when you do such a thing. But that sinking feeling may yet drive us to take this war seriously instead of playing our enemies’ games. First, let’s review the bidding. We thought we knew about four Americans in the grip of the ayatollahs: the Marine, the priest, the journalist and the businessman. As it turned out, there were six, two of whom we’d never heard of. The businessman-Namazi-isn’t likely to get out soon, since the Iranians seem to believe he’s a real enemy, having taken the Revolutionary Guards to court for non-fulfillment of a natural gas deal with his Dubai company, and winning a big judgment. A billion or two. The Marine, the priest and the journalist are out, along with the two unknowns. Over here, we paid the ransom, in the form of the release or pardon of seven convicted or accused criminals, plus the removal of many Iranian names from the international no-fly list, plus more than a hundred billion in “sanctions relief.” And one will get you five that the bonus payment of 1.7 billion is part of the deal. That’s what the Iranians say, and their willingness to say it is a real change. Previously they had never publicly acknowledged their involvement in the hostage business; now they are bragging about it.

Largest Ever Solar System Discovered:
Planet 2Mass J2126-8140 Orbits 
a Star 1 Trillion KM Away
.
.
{creationrevolution.com} ~ The largest solar system ever recorded has been found, say astronomers... Scientists were studying a planet that they thought was just aimlessly wandering through space, but they discovered it is actually orbiting a host star roughly one trillion kilometres away from it. The planet that the scientists were researching – known as 2MASS J2126-8140 – was first believed to not have a parent star, but scientists were surprised when they found it was orbiting a red dwarf star, which has been called TYC 9486-927-1. The distance between the planet and the star is 7,000 times longer than the Earth and the Sun, report the astronomers in the Monthly Notices of The Royal Astronomical Society. The gap between the planet and star is so big that one full orbit takes the equivalent of almost a million years. That means that on average, one UK family would go through nearly 13,000 generations before 2MASS J2126-8140 completes a full orbit of TYC 9486-927-1.        http://creationrevolution.com/largest-ever-solar-system-discovered-...

{wnd.com} ~ Ammon Bundy and seven of his fellow militiamen are in FBI custody near the site of their Oregon stand-off and will face federal felony charges, authorities said... Two people, LaVoy Finicum and Ryan Bundy, Ammon’s brother, were shot during an altercation with police on Highway 395. Finicum, was killed, CNN reported. Federal authorities initially refused to release much information about the incident. “One individual who was a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased,” the FBI said in a news release.

Is Sexual Assault of Women 
Condoned in Islam?
 Tony Costa
.
{answeringmuslims.com} ~ Following  New Year's Eve celebrations the world was shocked to learn that over 600 women in Cologne, Germany were sexually assaulted en masse by men who were described as predominantly as "North African" and "Arab"... News later appeared that this was not an isolated incident, but that other similar attack took place in other cities in Europe. The media kept this disastrous news under wraps for about four days before reporting on it. Reports also suggested that the police were also complicit in keeping this story under cover. There is a practice in Arab world known as Taharush, an Arabic word meaning "harassment" usually associated with sexual harassment. Where does this practice come from and what is the motivation for it? Is it cultural? If so, then we have a culture that actually endorses the sexual harassment of women. So much for the politically correct view, better known as social Marxism or cultural Marxism that pervades most if not all of Western societies today which views all cultures as essentially equal. But the question must be asked, is this practice endorsed by Islam and its sacred texts? Islamic scholars who have weighed in to the events of Cologne have actually blamed not the perpetrators of these sexual assaults and rapes, but the victims, namely the women because they were wearing perfume and were not modestly dressed! As is becoming more and more common as evidenced in the media, the victims become the guilty party, and the perpetrators become the innocent party. While the Qur'an does not explicitly say that men should sexually harass in public, there is an interesting passage in the Qur'an 33:59 which seems to implicitly infer that if women are not properly covered, they may become subject to molestation. I have provided a number of English translations below of Qur'an 33:59 and have highlighted in bold the relevant words:

How stupid and vicious do 
elites think ‘we’ are?

A memorial to the victims of the San Bernardino terrorist attack still remains outside as workers return to work for the first time at the Inland Regional Center (IRC), California, January 4, 2016
.
{aei.org} ~ How stupid and vicious do they think we are? That’s a question that I think explains a lot of things about politics and society today — and about this year’s unpredictable presidential race... The “we” in that question are ordinary citizens and the “they” are political and media elites who hold them in contempt. Which they do over and over again by trying to obfuscate and cover up the source and motives of terrorist attacks. Barack nObama, who refuses to use phrases akin to “Islamist terrorism,” is a prime offender, but far from the only one. His predecessor George W. Bush, after the attacks of September 11, made a point of visiting mosques and calling Islam a religion of peace.

Hilly's Tax Plan: Robs From the Rich,
Steals from the Poor
Jeff Dunetz
.
.
{lidblog.com} ~ Hilly Clinton  promised her tax plan would be fair, and it just might be as she claimed.  According to analysts just about everyone in the country will be poorer thanks to her plan... Fair enough, Hilly’s tax plan screws rich and poor alike. In other words she will be Barack nObama ‘s third term…only worse. Perhaps her “eat the rich” strategy is not what it’s cooked up to be. Even worse that average $19 Billion in added revenue/year will do little to stem the Federal deficit which the CBO projected to increase to  $544 billion in fiscal 2016.        http://lidblog.com/hillarys-tax-plan-robs-from-the-rich-robs-from-t...

Press Misleads Nation on 
Illegal Immigration
.
{totalconservative.com} ~ According to a new report from the Justice Department, illegal immigrants are being prosecuted at a much lower rate over the last five years... Recently released statistics show that criminal prosecution has fallen 36 percent from 2011 to 2015, partly because local and state authorities are shying away from detaining illegal immigrants on behalf of the feds. In the meantime, The Washington Post analyzed a report this week from the Center for Migration Studies, which says that the number of illegal immigrants in the United States has fallen by more than a million individuals since 2008. In part, the CMS study says, because Mexican illegals have decreased in number by about 600,000 since President nObama took office. The report, coming as it does in the middle of an election cycle, is meant to portray this administration (and, by proxy, Democratic contender Hilly Clinton) as being tough on illegal immigration. Of course, the Washington Post’s story neglected to mention that nObama presided over mass legalization of these immigrants. Nearly a million illegals who came here as children were given amnesty as a result of the president’s 2012 executive order. That number alone is almost enough to completely nullify any decline in the total illegal immigrant population. That, of course, is if we have any reason to believe that the federal government has a good grasp on that population to begin with.        http://totalconservative.com/press-misleads-nation-on-illegal-immig...

Russia Could Trade East Ukraine 
For Sanction Relief

{punchingbagpost.com} ~ Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry used the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland as a platform to announce that relations between Russia and the West may be warming up... hanoi-Kerry stated that sanctions against Russia could be completely lifted with the next few months, which suggests that perhaps Russia has agreed to trade East Ukraine in exchange for this economic relief. Russia may be desperate to save a plummeting economy that has been deeply impacted by the fall in oil prices and Western sanctions. It was recently reported that the Russian economy saw its steepest decline in GDP, 3,7%, since 2009.        http://punchingbagpost.com/russia-could-trade-east-ukraine-for-sanc...

Glick: Ted Cruz’s American Restoration
Caroline Glick
.
.
{truthrevolt.org} ~ Under President Barack nObama, the United States has been fundamentally transformed. From the land of the free and the home of the brave, seven years into the nObama presidency, America acts like the land of the over regulated and the home of the risk averse.
.
In the Middle East, the new America is treacherous, and pathetic. It is despised by its allies and scorned by its enemies.
.
Consider the state of America’s relations with Saudi Arabia.
.
Following US Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry’s trip to Vienna last week, where together with his European sidekicks he met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Zarif and announced the end of the international sanctions against Iran, the top US diplomat traveled to Saudi Arabia.
.
The purpose of the trip was to demonstrate America’s continued commitment to its chief ally in the Persian Gulf.
.
It was a bluff and no one fell for it.
.
The deal nObama and hanoi-Kerry concluded with Iran sells Saudi Arabia and the rest of the US’s allies in the Middle East down the river. Quite simply, you cannot be pro-Iranian and pro-Israel or pro-Arab Gulf states at the same time.
.
The Saudis know it. They have given up on America.
.
hanoi-Kerry’s only major media appearance in the kingdom was at the US embassy. Speaking before an audience of people whose paychecks he signs, hanoi-Kerry insisted emptily, “We have as solid a relationship, as clear an alliance and as strong a friendship with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia as we have ever had, and nothing has changed because we worked to eliminate a nuclear weapon with a country in the region.”
.
It is a sign of America’s reduced status that no one bothered to question hanoi-Kerry’s ridiculous pronouncement. Seven years into nObama’s fundamental transformation of America, no one cares what the Americans say.
.
America’s spurned allies are making their peace with its global self-destruction. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t praying that America will come to its senses. Unfortunately, history cannot wait forever. Time is running out.
.
Incremental change simply will not do. The world is changing too quickly and dangerously for a hesitant successor or one that fails to recognize that the entirety of nObama’s foreign policy must be rejected from the outset.
.
And no, although it is impossible to know what tomorrow will bring, the safe bet is that the US can’t afford to elect the wrong leader in November. 2020 will in all likelihood be too late.
.
And so, a week before the first votes are cast in the 2016 presidential election, who among the candidates has the courage and the competence to enact a counterrevolution in American foreign policy?
.
Who has the courage and the competence to restore America’s greatness at home and abroad, restoring its stature not only as the land of the free and the home of the brave, but as the most trustworthy ally and feared enemy throughout the world?
.
Seeing as both former secretary of state Hilly Clinton and Vermont’s socialist senator Bernie Sanders have endorsed nObama’s foreign policy, the Democrats are not the answer.
.
This leaves us with the Republicans. According to Real Clear Politics, 64 percent of Americans believe that their country is going in the wrong direction. An angry electorate historically goes with the party that has been out of power. So the Republicans have every reason to believe that they can win in November.
.
But which candidate is up to the task? Although the field of candidates remains large, the polls indicate that the race today has become a contest between businessman Donald Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Florida Senator Marco Rubio remains the choice of the Republican elite, despite his low polling, and so must also be considered.
.
On the face of it, both Trump and Cruz answer the yearning of voters for an American restoration. Both channel the anger Republican primary voters feel toward their congressional leadership and party elite which voters believe refuses to fight for them. Both highlight their outsider status.
.
Trump’s anti-establishment bonafides are based on the fact that he has never held elected office. True, Trump admits that as a businessman he played politicians and politics to maximize his profits, and so benefited from the worst aspects of the American political system.
.
But, Trump insists, with some credibility, since he is self-funding his campaign, as president he will be able to act against the wishes of the donor class to whom presidential candidates are generally beholden, due to their dependence on political contributions.
.
Cruz is a much different person. Cruz is, to borrow Margaret Thatcher’s term, a conviction politician. He isn’t in politics to make a deal. He is in politics to make a difference.
.
By all accounts, Cruz is one of the most gifted living litigators. If Cruz had wanted a successful career outside of politics, he would have had his pick of top firms and corporations beating a path to his door.
.
In other words, if he had wanted to make billions and be a deal maker like Trump, the road was open before him.
.
Cruz opted out of a lucrative career in the private sector because he believed that it was more important for him to serve his country. Over his four years in the Senate, Cruz has worked tirelessly to block nObama’s domestic and foreign policy agenda. He has been Israel’s most outspoken ally. He has been the most outspoken critic of nObama’s nuclear and financial capitulation to Iran and his betrayal of America’s Sunni allies.
.
Cruz has used all the power of his office as senator to fight the nObama administration’s radical policies. But that is not all he has done. Cruz has worked with grassroots organizations in Texas and throughout the country to empower the public to stand up for its rights.
.
One of the strangest lines of attack against Cruz has been the claim that he is an opportunist. Cruz, it is argued, doesn’t actually believe in the causes he fights for. He’s just doing it to get donations, or media exposure, or votes.
.
But this is preposterous. Most of the things that Cruz has done for Israel for instance, have brought him no advantage. Cruz did more than any other Republican to force the administration to end its ban on US flights to Israel during Operation Protective Edge. The same is true of his leading role in galvanizing opposition to nObama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
.
No large Jewish donors have rallied to Cruz’s side as a result of his tireless efforts to defend Israel and the US alliance with the Jewish state. Conservative Jewish commentators have lined up behind Senator Marco Rubio, who has taken the lead far less often than Cruz in defending Israel.
.
Even worse, unlike Cruz, Rubio has supported some of nObama’s worst policies in the Middle East. These include nObama’s decision to support the overthrow of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and instigate the overthrow of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. These policies, which Rubio and his conservative Jewish supporters backed, rival nObama’s nuclear pact with Iran in terms of their disastrous impact on pro-American governments, including Israel, on global security and on US national security.
.
In perhaps one of the strangest developments of the Republican race, not only have conservative Jewish commentators lined up behind Rubio, they have directed inordinate ferocity and hatred toward Cruz, whom they oppose more than they oppose Trump.
.
Trump, for his part, has advocated Middle East policies that are barely comprehensible and wracked with inconsistency and surprising hostility toward Israel.
.
On the one hand, Trump continuously insists that as president he will be the greatest thing that ever happened to Israel.
.
But on the second hand, a month ago, he told Jewish Republicans that he won’t recognize that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital and blamed Israel for the absence of peace with the Palestinians.
.
But on the third hand, a week ago, he told an evangelical Christian reporter that he backs moving the US embassy to Jerusalem “one hundred percent.”
.
Got that?
.
And that brings us back to the key question of whether America wants to be great again, trusted by its allies, feared by its enemies, and safe at home. Because if so, voters need to ask not who channels their rage the best, but who has the courage and the competence to roll back nObama’s policies. How can Rubio, who supported some of nObama’s most devastating policies, or Trump who has no coherent policies, be expected to do what needs to be done?
.
Through Ted Cruz’s willingness to match his words with his deeds, and do what he believes even when doing so bring him no benefit, and through his clear recognition that American foreign policy must rest on the simple rule of being good to your allies and bad to your enemies, Ted Cruz has proven that he alone has the courage and the competence to lead an American restoration.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
