 Poll: Hilly still number one, but… -  Fox News polling potentate Dana Blanton writes about the new national Fox News Poll out today: “Vice President loose lips-Joe Biden trails Hilly Clinton for the Democratic nomination, yet he looks more electable than the former secretary of state against top Republicans. … Clinton remains the front-runner among Democratic primary voters (45 percent), with Bernie Sanders (25 percent) and loose lips-Biden (19 percent) behind her by about 20 percentage points. That’s almost identical to where things stood three weeks ago. In hypothetical 2016 matchups with top-tier Republicans, Clinton trails all the Republicans tested. She trails Ben Carson by 11 points and Donald Trump by 5 points. Jeb Bush has a 4-point edge over Clinton, while Carly Fiorina is up by 3 points. loose lips-Biden fares better. He leads Trump by 13 points and tops Bush by 5 points. loose lips-Biden is preferred over both Fiorina and Carson by 4 points. And loose lips-Biden narrowly bests Marco Rubio by 1 point.”  -Fox News

 Rubio says President nObama in ‘complete denial’ about  Middle East WashEx: “‘I feel sad for the country to have a president who is in complete denial about what’s happening in the Middle East,’ the Republican presidential contender told Fox News, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s moves in the Middle East. The comments follow nObama’s denial in a Sunday night CBS interview that Russia is the new leader in the region. According to the Florida senator, Putin is taking advantage of  nObama’s weak Middle East policies, taking over as the major outside power in the region by claiming Moscow is more reliable than Washington.”   -Fox News

 Cruz knocks fellow senators for missing votes to campaign 
AP:“Without mentioning [Sen. Marco] Rubio by name, [Sen. Ted] Cruz said he had been ‘proud to lead’ the failed Republican effort last month to block federal funding for Planned Parenthood. ‘I would ask a simple question: Where were the other candidates?’ Cruz, a Texas senator, said to reporters before meeting with voters in Fort Dodge, in conservative northwest Iowa.”   -Fox News

TRUMPUBLICANS DIG IN AGAINST RYAN   Immigration activists in the GOP are drawing a harder line against the idea of Rep. Paul Ryan as a unity candidate for House speaker – evidence of how defining the issue has become for the party, particularly the quarter backing presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
          Ryan, a staunch social conservative who has been a hero on the right for his aggressive stances on entitlement programs, finds himself on the other side of the top issue for Trump’s wing of the party. Pro-Trump groupshave been hammering Ryan, and will be using this week’s congressional recess to try to force Ryan out of the race. Trump who on Sunday had seemingly endorsed Ryan, switched on Monday, saying he was “a little concerned” about what he said was Ryan’s “very weak” stance on “amnesty.”
          As Joel Gehrke reports, their chances of success are good.
          Ryan has made it clear that he won’t take the gig without support from the immigration hardliners. So if they don’t want him, Ryan is likely to stay where he is. Is there any candidate who would meet the demands of the few dozen immigration absolutists but could still garner support from the two hundred other members? Not anytime soon.

 nObama: Christians threaten nation  
{Bryan Fischer} ~ If you have ever wondered whether President nObama has an abiding hostility to people of Christian faith, wonder no more. He believes we are a threat to national security... If you are a sincerely devoted follower of Jesus Christ, your president believes you are a potential domestic terrorist. I do not exaggerate. In a gathering at George Washington University this week, nObama's assistant attorney general for national security, John Carlin, revealed that the Department of Justice is creating a brand new position just to monitor us. The position, domestic terrorism counsel, will be created to combat the "real and present threat" of domestic terrorism. And where, pray tell, does this threat come from? From the Muslim Brotherhood, which has a stated goal of exterminating Western civilization and sabotaging our miserable house from within? Nope. From ISIS, which is actively recruiting jihadists in all 50 states? Nope. Jihadists who are sneaking into the United States disguised as Syrian refugees? Nope. No, the real threat to our national security, according to our president and his minions, is coming from the Family Research Council and the American Family Association.        http://www.onenewsnow.com/perspectives/bryan-fischer/2015/10/16/oba...

 WH immigration stance - pro-Muslim, anti-Christian?  
{Chad Groening} ~ An immigration enforcement activist is critical of the nObama administration for moving forward with plans to accept thousands of "refugees" from predominantly Muslim countries while denying persecuted Christians the same status... "The Muslim illegal alien invasion of Europe is absolutely like some type of science fiction film of a grim future that people saw coming," laments William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC. "Large mobs of people [are] just completely overwhelming places in Germany and Italy and Switzerland and Sweden and England – and it's crazy. So that's America's future." Indeed, Germany is experiencing the consequences of allowing hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria and other Muslim nations into the country. Almost 600,000 migrants have entered Europe's most prosperous country this year, compelling the German legislature to pass a bill aimed at cutting red tape, speeding up deportations of rejected applicants, and curbing cash benefits.        http://www.onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2015/10/16/wh-immigration-s...

 Iran Releases Footage of Underground Missile Base  
{LESLIE HALE} ~  At first glance it looks like the set of a James Bond movie -- a seemingly impregnable mountain base packed full of uniformed men and sinister-looking missiles on their launch vehicles parked along a long tunnel buried deep underground... But this is in fact a real-life missile facility in Iran, according to the country's semi-official FARS news agency. In a rare moment of openness, Iran on Wednesday broadcast pictures from The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force of a tunnel reportedly dug some 1,640 feet (500 meters) under a mountain.

 FBI Agent’s Bombshell: Hilly Could Be Going To Jail For 10 Years  
{Kevin Whitson} ~ As the investigation into the “gross negligence” of Hilly Clinton’s handling of classified material continues, one anonymous FBI agent says she could be facing 10 years in jail under the Espionage Act... The Act, according to the FBI agent, requires one who discovers the negligence to inform superiors. In the case of the alleged mishandling of classified documents and emails, Clinton would have needed to inform her only superior, the president, and he stated last week that he was not informed. According to the Daily Mail, “Obama said flatly during a ‘60 Minutes‘ interview on Sunday that ‘No,’ he did not know Clinton sidestepped security protocols with her a home-brew email setup while she was his secretary of state.” Under conditions of anonymity, the FBI agent stated, “If investigators conclude that the former secretary Clinton was criminally careless in how she approached the security of the sensitive documents in her possession, then this part of the law could be used to prosecute her.”

  Hilly Double Standard - Above Espionage Law of The Little People  
{rickwells.us} ~ CNBC hosted a Today Show Hilly Clinton public relations event, a choreographed faux-town hall complete with planted questions on the hot topic of the day, gun control... But the media puppeteers were just getting warmed up. At the Hilly Clinton coronation that passes only under the most generous of definitions as a debate, even one of the candidates, Jim Webb, noticed that Clinton seemed to know in advance the nature of the questions and was awfully well prepared to the point of him questioning whether there was collusion between CNN and the Clinton campaign. It would be a shocker if there weren’t impropriety but just giving their criminal candidate the answers and an unfair advantage wouldn’t be enough to chase away the corruption demons which are following her around involving her many espionage violations. They used the staged event to announce to all Democrats who hadn’t dozed off that their top two communist candidates both agree. Exposing our national secrets to the rest of the world in the interest of hiding what you’re doing from the American people is nothing that should intrude into a presidential campaign.

 Creepy Clinton Preparing Insanity Defense?...  
{rickwells.us} ~ Jake Tapper is attempting to conduct a serious interview about what should be a most serious topic for Hilly Clinton, the investigation into the scandal that will likely end her bid to be the first woman president... and which could simultaneously land her in a federal prison on espionage convictions. He references the comments of Bernie Sanders during the Democrat debates, the suspiciously contrived appearing assertion that he believes we’ve heard enough about her email crimes. That reference wasn’t made in a joking manner but Clinton gets a big kick out of it, to the point of being uncomfortably creepy. She cackles away as if she’s on some kind of medication or suffering from a mental condition. Could she be attempting to lay the groundwork for her insanity defense? Liberalism is a mental illness but it is not recognized as sufficiently debilitating to be used as a defense in court.        http://rickwells.us/archives/20830

 Congress Looks to Cut Aid to Palestinians Amid Terror Campaign  
{Adam Kredo} ~ Momentum is building on Capitol Hill for a new congressional resolution that would cut more than $5 billion in U.S. aid to the Palestinians as a result of an increase in violence that has claimed the lives of at least eight Israelis and wounded many more... according to a copy of the measure viewed by the Free Beacon. The bill comes amid criticism from lawmakers about the nObama administration’s response to the terrorism and efforts to blame Israel for the violence. Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Tex.), among others, has demanded that Secretary of State hanoi-John Kerry resign his post in light of accusations by the administration that Israel has fostered the violence as a result of its policies to combat Palestinian terrorism.        http://freebeacon.com/issues/congress-looks-to-cut-u-s-aid-to-pales...

 nObama does quick U-turn on prison pork removal  
{DOUGLAS ERNST} ~ The nObama administration did a rapid U-turn on its decision to remove pork products from federal prisons after a few questions from Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley... The federal Bureau of Prisons’ reversal of the Oct. 1 menu change comes just one week after its spokesman, Edmond Ross, said pork was the “lowest-rated” food among inmates. “To corroborate the validity of the claim that prisoners indicated a lack of interest in pork products, I am requesting copies of the prisoner surveys and responses that were used to support the determination to no longer serve pork in federal prisons,” the Republican senator wrote to the agency on Thursday, the Washington Post reported. “Please provide any economic evaluations the Bureau of Prisons has relied on that detail the cost of pork as compared to beef, chicken, and non-meat products such as tofu and soy products.” Pig products were back on the menu within hours of the letter’s publication.

 Dem Party Committee woman says MGMT's in tank for Hilly  
{Jeff Dunetz} ~ One of the key things about working for one of the party organizations like the RNC or the DNC is one is not supposed to show any favoritism to one candidate or another... The job of the party is to fundraise and to provide structure, but not to select candidates (the establishment who pushes one candidate over the other is not the party organization it’s the party moneymen. According to David Martosko, US Political Editor For Dailymail.com the females at top of the Democratic National Committee is in the tank for Hilly Clinton, in fact they are clearing the path for her to the nomination. Why you ask? She has lady part. Or as Martkoso explains, its “a female cabal dead set on putting a woman in the White House,”according to that DNC committeewoman. David spoke to a DNC committee woman in Las Vegas after Tuesday night’s debate.       http://lidblog.com/democratic-party-committee-woman-says-party-mgmt...

 City slapped, fined $290,000 for discriminating against church  
{BOB UNRUH} ~ A $290,000 settlement has been reached in a Florida church’s years-long case against a city for refusing permission to build a sanctuary... The Church of Our Savior in Jacksonville Beach had been holding meetings in a rented wooden chapel, local restaurants and members’ homes. Members bought land for a permanent meeting site, but city officials refused permission, citing the character of the neighborhood. A court eventually ruled that the city, under federal law, must allow the church to use the land it bought. And now the Alliance Defending Freedom has announced an agreement in which the city must pay “$290,000 in attorneys’ fees and expenses the church incurred to defend its constitutionally and legally protected freedoms.”

Impeach the IRS director
 George F. Will
.
.
     {washingtonpost.com} ~ “Look,” wrote Lois Lerner, echoing Horace Greeley, “my view is that Lincoln was our worst president not our best. He should have let the South go. We really do seem to have 2 totally different mindsets.” Greeley, editor of the New York Tribune, was referring to Southern secessionist states when he urged President-elect Lincoln to “let the erring sisters go in peace.”
.
     Greeley favored separating the nation from certain mind-sets; Lerner favors suppressing certain mind-sets. At the Internal Revenue Service, she participated in delaying for up to five years — effectively denying — tax-exempt status for, and hence restricting political activity by, groups with conservative mind-sets. She retired after refusing to testify to congressional committees, invoking Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination.
.
     As the IRS coverup of its and her malfeasance continues, the Republicans’ new House leaders should exercise this constitutional power: “The House . . . shall have the sole power of impeachment.” The current IRS director, John Koskinen, has earned this attention.
.
     The Constitution’s framers, knowing that executive officers might not monitor themselves, provided the impeachment recourse to bolster the separation of powers. Federal officials can be impeached for dereliction of duty (as in Koskinen’s failure to disclose the disappearance of e-mails germane to a congressional investigation); for failure to comply (as in Koskinen’s noncompliance with a preservation order pertaining to an investigation); and for breach of trust (as in Koskinen’s refusal to testify accurately and keep promises made to Congress).
.
     Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says the IRS has “lied to Congress ” and “destroyed documents under subpoena.” He accuses Koskinen of “lies, obfuscation and deceit”: “He assured us he would comply with a congressional subpoena seeking Lois Lerner’s emails. Not only did he fail to keep that promise, we later learned he did not look in earnest for the information.”
.
     After Koskinen complained about the high cost in time and money involved in the search, employees at a West Virginia data center told a Treasury Department official that no one asked for backup tapes of Lerner’s e-mails. Subpoenaed documents, including 422 tapes potentially containing 24,000 Lerner e-mails, were destroyed. For four months, Koskinen kept from Congress information about Lerner’s elusive e-mails. He testified under oath that he had “confirmed” that none of the tapes could be recovered.
.
     Lerner conducted government business using private e-mail, and when she was told that the IRS’s instant messaging system was not archived, she replied: “Perfect.” Koskinen’s obfuscating testimonies have impeded investigation of unsavory practices, including the IRS’s sharing, potentially in violation of tax privacy laws, up to 1.25 million pages of confidential tax documents. Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, which has forced the IRS to disgorge documents, says some “prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech.”
.
     In July testimony, Koskinen consistently mischaracterized the Government Accountability Office report on IRS practices pertaining to IRS audits of tax-exempt status to groups. He wrongly testified that the report found “no examples of anyone who was improperly selected for an audit.” He mischaracterized the report’s criticism of IRS procedures for selecting exempt organizations for audits.
.
     Contrary to his testimony, the report did not find that “individuals” were “automatically” selected for audit. The report did not investigate audits of individual taxpayers; it reviewed selection practices for audits of exempt organizations. The report noted, and Koskinen neglected to mention, that the IRS tracks information about high-net-worth individuals. Congress should investigate whether that tracking includes contributions to political committees and issue groups and whether the IRS then initiates audits of donors.
.
     Koskinen has testified that “there’s no evidence that anybody outside the IRS had . . . any conversations with Lerner about targeting conservative groups or that she even had directives internally.”
.
     How could he assert the absence of evidence that he had not sought? He had testified that he had conducted no investigation of the targeting.
.
     Even if, as Koskinen says, he did not intentionally mislead Congress, he did not subsequently do his legal duty to correct the record in a timely manner. Even if he has not committed a crime such as perjury, he has a duty higher than merely avoiding criminality.
.
     If the House votes to impeach, the Senate trial will not produce a two-thirds majority needed for conviction: Democrats are not ingrates. Impeachment would, however, test the mainstream media’s ability to continue ignoring this five-year-old scandal and would demonstrate to dissatisfied Republican voters that control of Congress can have gratifying consequences.

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

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

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!
