 Clinton’s Warren moment -  WaPo: “…Clinton will voice a far-reaching critique of the financial sector in a speech Fridaya major victory for Wall Street's critics. The stock market, she will say, has become short-sighted, focused on measures of quarterly performance rather than the future viability of American corporations, according to aides. She'll describe worrisome consequences for investors, employees and the economy as a whole.”
          And she backs Planned Parenthood - NYT“[Clinton] called the video footage, which shows an official from the group discussing the price of providing fetal parts, the latest effort of a years-long “concerted attack” against “a woman’s right to choose.”  -Fox News

 Walker trashes Iran deal -  Sacramento Bee: “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a sympathetic crowd of state lawmakers from around the country Thursday that he would trash the nuclear deal with Iran on his first day as president, striking a combative tone on how he would govern on a range of domestic and foreign policy issues. Walker addressed the annual meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council…”  -Fox News

 Is the Firearm Background Check System Broken? 
After last Thursday's Lafayette theater shooting, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal called on the nation to bolster background checks for anyone seeking to purchase a firearm. "I think every state should strengthen their laws," the Republican presidential candidate said. "Every state should make sure this information is being reported in the background system. We need to make sure that background system is working. Absolutely, in this instance, this man never should have been able to buy a gun." John Houser cleared his background check when he bought a .40-caliber High-Point handgun from an Alabama pawn shop. But this was after Houser was denied a concealed cary permit in 2006 after he was charged with domestic violence and soliciting arson. It was also after his family committed him involuntarily for psychiatric care in Georgia in 2008. Jindal continued, "In Louisiana, we toughened our laws a couple of years ago. If he had been involuntarily committed here, if he had tried to buy that gun here, he wouldn't have been allowed to do that." While Jindal used the inexact phrase "strengthen their laws," his view is similar to that of Nick Leghorn at The Truth About Guns blog, as both of them believe the current system is broken and must be fixed. Houser likely lied about his history of mental illness on ATF Form 4473, but that lie should have been caught. The system failed because of human error, like it did before the Charleston shooting -The Patriot Post

 DOJ Limits Inspectors General 
The Most Transparent Administration in History™ decided that "privacy" is more important than allowing the independent inspectors general to do their jobs. The Department of Justice's Office of Legal Council issued an opinion declaring the organizations within the federal government designed to ferret out waste, fraud and corruption must seek permission from the head of the agency before collecting "statutorily protected information," like grand jury or wiretap information. "In reaching these conclusions," the opinion read, "our Office's role has not been to decide what access [inspectors general] should receive as a matter of policy. Rather, we have endeavored to determine as a matter of law, using established tools of statutory construction, how best to reconcile the strong privacy protections … with the interest in access reflected in … the IG Act." There has been bipartisan condemnation from Congress regarding DOJ's decision, saying that the nObama administration has played verbal gymnastics over a statute that was intended to be plainly read. Think a cabinet member will be beholden more to the bureaucracy than an independent review? It already happened under Eric Holder's DOJ when the inspectors general tried to investigate the Fast and Furious gun walking scandal.   -The Patriot Post

 ARABS CONFRONT JEWS ON TEMPLE MOUNT 
{Aaron Klein} ~ The Arabs, described as mostly youth, engaged in violent clashes with Jerusalem Police, who used non-lethal means to push the rioters into the al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent what would have been a major attack on Jewish worshipers Sunday... The Arabs holed up overnight inside the al-Aqsa Mosque, where they set up barricades using shoe racks, iron rods, and ropes to prevent the police from entering. The plan was reportedly to attack Jewish worshipers Sunday as Jews worldwide celebrate the Jewish fast day of Tisha Báv, or the ninth day of the lunar Jewish month of Av. The day marks the anniversary of several major disasters in Jewish history, most notably the destruction of both the First and Second Jewish Temples in Jerusalem.

 Hilly climate change goals include plan to ‘decarbonize’ America  
{S.A. Miller} ~ Democratic presidential front-runne Hilly Rodham Clinton entered the climate change debate Sunday, setting ambitious goals to “decarbonize” America and blasting her Republican rivals for ignoring scientists... who warn of a looming disaster from global warming. Mrs. Clinton promised that, if elected president, she would set two goals to fight climate change: increase the number of solar panels by more than 500 million across the country by the end of her first term and set a 10-year goal of generating enough renewable energy to power every single home in America. Mrs. Clinton’s goals served as her opening bid to satisfy the Democratic Party’s liberal base, which wants a more aggressive effort on climate change and environmentalism than President nObama has been able to muster. Here we go again, a 3rd term of nObama.     http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jul/26/hillary-clintons-cl...

 Putin Threatens America with Nuclear Annihilation  
{Ciff Kincald} ~ The nation is fiercely debating the Iran nuclear deal and the significance of the Ayatollah’s “death to America” tweets when the real problem is Iran’s sponsor, Russia, and its lunatic ruler, Vladimir Putin... By controlling the media, killing off the opposition, and smearing Ukrainian freedom fighters as Nazis, the former KGB colonel has his country worked into a collective frenzy over a concocted Western threat. Some experts believe Russia is preparing for nuclear war on a global scale. If Putin carries out his threats, America is no more. In this case, the U.S. is facing not only a nuclear weapons program, which is the case with Iran, but what our top generals are calling an “existential threat” to our survival as a nation. As the National Institute for Public Policy documents in the report, “Foreign Nuclear Developments: A Gathering Storm,” Russia has a new military doctrine that anticipates using nuclear weapons, and the regime has embarked on “a massive strategic modernization program to deploy new nuclear weapons and delivery systems.” Not only that, but Russia has a ballistic missile defense to use against us.

 Congress Must Hold nObama Accountable for His Deception On Iran  
{Andrew McCarthy} ~ By lying and withholding information about the agreement, he gives aid and comfort to America’s enemy... The president “must certainly be punishable for giving false information to the Senate.” One can imagine hearing such counsel from a contemporary United States senator on the receiving end of President nObama’s “full disclosure” of the nuclear deal with Iran. But the admonition actually came from James Iredell, a champion of the Constitution’s ratification, who was later appointed to the Supreme Court by President George Washington.       http://www.aim.org/guest-column/congress-must-hold-obama-accountabl...

 AG Loretta Lynch faces potential minefield with Hilly email  
{Pierre Thomas and Mike Levine} ~ The latest controversy over Hilly Clinton's use of a personal email system while secretary of state is not only a possible drag on her presidential campaign, but it also creates a potential headache for Attorney General Loretta Lynch... The inspectors general for the State Departmentand intelligence community on Friday disclosed that an internal review of Clinton's system concluded some emails contained classified information and that the inspectors general had sent a non-criminal "referral" to the Justice Department over the matter. Lynch and her department must now determine what to do next -- including whether to open a criminal investigation -- and whatever she decides will be under intense scrutiny, especially by Republicans on Capitol Hill.

 Criminal Hilly’s Facade Of Legitimacy, Destroyed By Judge Pirro  
{rickwells.us} ~ A false and insulated persona that took Hilly Clinton years to establish and erect is taken apart in a little over four minutes by a very on-target Judge Jeanine Pirro... She begins by noting that Hilly Clinton can’t be trusted or believed so it’s ridiculous for anyone to “even think about voting for the woman.” She says, “There is no candidate in recent history for president or any other major office who has skirted the law, pushed the legal envelope or been under investigation as much as Hilly Rodham Clinton.” Judge Pirro points out that two Inspectors General notified Congress the day before regarding a ten percent positive finding for classified information in documents formerly housed on the Clinton basement server. She then plays a clip of Clinton asserting that “she was certainly aware of the classification requirements and that no such materials were part of her communications.

 Traitor Mitch” McCon-nell Retreats Into His Shell On Abortion  
{rickwells.us} ~ McCon-nell gave a speech recently at the “Faith and Freedom Summit” in which he portrayed himself as the preeminent advocate for the unborn child, promising a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act... That bill, which passed the House, now resides in limbo in the Senate Judiciary Committee. As is typical with “Traitor Mitch,” the Senate Pimp only lines up his working girls when the big money comes calling. Everyday Americans and conservatives get a wink, a promise and a cold shoulder. McCon-nell had a chance to include an amendment to defund the human butcher and chop shop that is Planned Parenthood, eliminating the $500 million annual taxpayer contribution to their infanticide by simply attaching it to the highway bill. He decided dead babies aren’t so important to him after all and let that opportunity pass.        http://rickwells.us/post-turtle-traitor-mitch-mcconnell-retreats-in...

 Iran Just Hired a New Security Guard for Its Nuclear Program...  
{patriotsandpolitics.com} ~ In an era when American politicians advocate passing bills before citizens can find out what’s in them, comes the newest “stunning historic mistake”: nObama’s nuclear deal with Iran... While advocates for the deal spin and the media glosses over the details, at least one group has bothered to read the deal that was signed. IranTruth.org has found a couple of clauses buried deep inside the agreement that seem to suggest that the U.S. will be obligated to defend the security of Iran’s nuclear program from countries that may want to see it sabotaged (read: Israel). Annex III.D.10.1-2 of the nuclear deal reads as follows:        http://patriotsandpolitics.com/iran-just-hired-a-new-security-guard...

 How ISIS Makes Money From The Art Market  
{Abigail R. Esman} ~ Imagine: you are window-shopping on a quiet street, perhaps in London or Paris or New York. Something remarkable catches your eye: an ancient coin, a gold chain, a tiny figurine. Impulsively, you enter the shop... where the owner explains to you that the sculpture comes originally from Mesopotamia, that the necklace is Byzantine. It isn't inexpensive, but the shopkeeper has guaranteed its provenance and the price seems fair; and besides, you quite love it. You say yes, and leave the shop with your new treasure tucked safely in a bag. You may have just handed your money over to the Islamic State. According to antiquities experts and members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the plundering and sale of ancient artifacts from Syria and Iraq has become big business for the Islamic State (ISIS), contributing significantly, as the Guardian reports, to the income stream that has "made it the most cash-rich terror group in the world." Indeed, according to NBC News, "Antiquity plundering - particularly from violence-riddled Syria and Iraq - fuels a $7 billion black market, and some of that money lands in the pockets of terrorists."

 Nuclear Iran: Is the U.S. Really Suicidal?  
{Bassam Tawil} ~ If the West had studied that important event in Islamic history, they would understand they were enabling Iran to achieve a nuclear bomb and accelerate the national religious war between us, the Arabs, and the Shi'ite Iranians... For Iran's mullahs, the showdown is meant to be apocalyptic. In that respect, the agreement signed by the American-led powers with Iran's rulers is a milestone along the path they have been praying for. The Ayatollahs' wish has long been finally to defeat the divided Arabs, currently at their weakest point since the beginning of the so-called Arab Spring, and then to move on to defeat Israel, and then grandest prize of all: the "Great Satan," the United States. The Shi'ite regime of the Ayatollahs in Iran and their proxies are united. And, since the fall of the Shah, they are, sadly, also radical. Between their terrorist wings and influence in the Middle East and abroad, the Ayatollahs are refreshingly open about their determination to defeat the Arabs and achieve religious and national hegemony. Iran's forcing itself on the rest of the world is a central part of Khomeini's Islamic Revolution. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/6234/nuclear-iran-suicide

Immigrants? What Immigrants?
Tom McLaughlin

     {tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ After reading Ann Coulter’s recently released “Adios America!” I’m conscious of how our mainstream media deal with crimes committed by immigrants, legal and illegal. While some crimes are reported on locally, the status of the perpetrators is ignored. Coulter gives example after example too numerous to mention here, of how immigrants commit heinous crimes all over the United States, but the word “immigrant” is always conspicuously absent when the perpetrators are described.
.
     As my wife and I drove through Portland, Maine last week listening to WGAN on the radio, we heard about Jimmy Odong’s crime spree. The twenty-five-year-old man was arrested for a carjacking at gunpoint in Portland and the armed robbery of a bank in nearby Freeport the same day. He’s also the chief suspect in another robbery earlier that day. Last February, Odong was arrested for aggravated assault in a Portland domestic incident.
.

.
     “I’m glad that guy is off the streets,” my wife said as we passed neighborhoods in which some of those crimes occurred.
.
“Other than all that, Jimmy is probably a nice guy,” I responded.
.
     “Yeah, right,” she said. The broadcast never mentioned that Jimmy Odong was an immigrant from Sudan.
.
.
     The next day, I was reading the Portland Press Herald, a leftist paper next to which the Boston Globe appears moderate. In it was a picture of Jimmy Odong in police custody. It turns out that long before his most recent crime spree, Odong was well-known to police. In 2009, he was arrested after he “led police on a two-mile car chase through the city’s Bayside neighborhood and downtown Portland. During the chase, Odong crashed into several parked cars and struck a building. After abandoning his car, Odong fled before he was captured in Congress Square. He was charged with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, eluding an officer, operating under the influence, operating without a license and four counts of leaving the scene of an accident.” Nowhere in the story did it mention that Odong was an immigrant. WGME and WCSH covered the story too, but neither of those TV stations mentioned it either.
.
.
     Odong had been in trouble only a week before that 2009 incident when police arrested him for stealing two bottles of vodka from the Hannaford store on Forest Avenue. He resisted and nearly started a riot when a group of young black men surrounded police and shouted: “Killers!” and “Murderers!” Just week before that, police shot a young black immigrant, also from Sudan who had pulled a gun on them. The media identified him as an immigrant only because he could be portrayed as a victim and not a perpetrator. That’s how it is with our mainstream media: if the story is likely to stir up sympathy, mention “immigrant.” If the story is negative, leave it out.
.
.
     We hear much about American white guys being accused of rape — even when the stories are false. Consider Tawana Brawley, Duke Lacrosse, and the University of Virginia cases alone. Our mainstream media were breathless in their coverage although none had any basis in fact. Why? Because the alleged perpetrators were American white guys. They ignore thousands of genuine sexual assaults by illegal immigrants however, and when they do report, they leave out information about race or immigration status.
.
Duke Lacrosse players falsely accused
.
     Those of us who don’t limit our information-gathering to mainstream sources know America is experiencing an illegal alien crime wave. In “Adios America!” Coulter reports that fully one quarter of the entire population of Mexico has crossed the border into the United States, illegally in most cases, as well as one fifth of the population of El Salvador. Brietbart.com reports that illegals accounted for 37% of all federal prison sentences in the United States in 2014! Manhattan Institute scholar Heather MacDonald has documented that: “In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens.” In 1980, President Carter told Fidel Castro that he could send any Cubans here who wanted to come, so Castro emptied his jails and mental hospitals in the infamous Mariel Boat Lift. Looks like Mexico is taking a cue from Cuba, because we’re certainly not getting the cream of the Mexican crop.
.
.
     Maine became a sanctuary state when Democrat Governor John Baldacci issued an executive order forbidding state employees from inquiring about the immigration status of anyone, anytime, whether applying for benefits or being stopped by police. The result? Thousands of illegal aliens poured into our tiny state, many going on welfare in violation of federal law. Republican Governor Paul LePage is only now turning off the welfare spigot. In 2011, the Center For Immigration Studies reported that, nationally, 57% of legal and illegal immigrants used at least one form of welfare.
.
.
     Coulter contends our media grossly underreport the number of illegal aliens living here. She says there are at least 30 million, most of them on welfare. If this continues, Coulter makes a good case that it’s adios to America as we know it.

ALERT ALERT

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
