 Stumbling Toward War 
A spate of stories published last week all point in one troubling direction: America's adversaries have taken the measure of our commander in chief — and found him seriously wanting.
          We begin with the news that Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Iran Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan regarding the purchase of the S-300 air defense system and offensive weapons that include Moscow's most sophisticated T-90 tanks and Su-30 Flanker fighter jets. Thus one of the key provisions of the Iran nuclear deal, a.k.a. UN Resolution 2231 — requiring Tehran to get UN permission before acquiring "battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, large calibre artillery systems, combat aircraft, attack helicopters, warships, missiles or missile systems" — is on the verge of being ignored. Adding insult to injury, Gen. Dehqan is believed to be the architect of the 1983 Beirut bombing that killed 241 American service members.
          Iran is also expected to thumb its nose at the same resolution this month when they test a Simorgh space launch vehicle characterized by U.S. officials as the basis of their covert program to develop long-range nuclear missiles. An unnamed State Department official who spoke with The Washington Free Beacon epitomized the administration's flaccid response to the prospect, declining to speculate as to whether such a launch would violate the agreement, but promising to address any Iranian actions "inconsistent with any relevant U.N. Security Council resolutions ... through the appropriate channels." Iran insists the space launch vehicle's 220 pound payload is too small to carry a first-generation nuclear warhead. The Beacon's Bill Gertz reveals otherwise: "Space launch technology is identical to long-range missile technology."
          And from whom is Iran getting the technological expertise for such an effort? An April exposé by Gertzreveals that while the nuclear negotiations with Iran were proceeding, North Korea supplied the mullahs with "several shipments of missile components" that also "appear to violate UN sanctions on both countries." That would be the very same North Korea that South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS) asserts is planning a terrorist attack orchestrated by Kim Jong Un. The same North Korea that launched a long-range rocket of its own this month — following January's test of hydrogen bomb components.

 OPINION IN BRIEF 
Peggy Noonan: "The closest you can come to public peace in resolving the question of Scalia's replacement is to take a step wholly unusual, even unprecedented, and let the American people make the decision themselves, this year, with their 2016 presidential vote. ... That they made the decision will allow people to accept the outcome more easily — either a real change in the ideological makeup of the court, or a court whose rough and not always predictable balance has been preserved. We take a swerve or stay where we are. But it will be the people who swerved or stayed. For President nObama to leave the Scalia replacement to the next president would be an act of prudence and democratic courtesy. ... There is something increasingly unappeasable in the left. This is something conservatives and others have come to fear, that progressives now accept no limits. We can't just have court-ordered legalized abortion across the land, we have to have it up to the point of birth, and taxpayers have to pay for it. It's not enough to win same-sex marriage, you've got to personally approve of it and if you publicly resist you'll be ruined. It's not enough that we have publicly funded contraceptives, the nuns have to provide them. This unappeasable spirit always turns to the courts to have its way."   -The Patriot Post

 Democrat Double Standards 
To paraphrase William Shakespeare, the villany Democrats teach, Republicans will execute, and it shall go hard but they will better the instruction. It wasn't so long ago that the power was flipped in the Senate.
          George W. Bush controlled the White House and Democrats controlled the upper chamber from 2001 to 2003. Bush nominated 32 judges during that time. Not one of them even made it to the Judiciary Committee for a hearing. In 2005, Democrats — including Barack nObama, Joe loose lips-Biden, John hanoi-Kerry, Harry dinky-Reid and Hilly Clinton — filibustered the nomination of Samuel Alito. That same quintet is now leading the chorus calling for the Republican-controlled Senate to do its "constitutional duties" and rubber stamp whomever nObama nominates.
          When Bush had a year and six months left in his last term, Sen. Chuck Schumer said unless something extraordinary happened, the Senate shouldn't approve any Bush nominee. Going back to the last few weeks of George H.W Bush's administration, loose lips-Biden said Bush shouldn't nominate anyone until after the 1992 presidential election was completed — the same thing Republicans are saying to nObama. But now that he's co-captain in the Oval Office, loose lips-Biden conveniently insists that "lengthy speech on the Senate floor about a hypothetical vacancy on the Supreme Court" ... "is not an accurate description of my views on the subject."
          When members of the current administration occupied seats in the Senate, its views on the Senate's role in the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice was robust. After all, the Senate offers its consent and advice, per the Constitution. But the Democrats' interpretation of the Constitution changes with the political winds.

FLASHBACK: Sen. loose lips-Biden Staunchly Advised Against Filling SCOTUS Vacancy During Election Year
Trey Sanchez
.
.
{truthrevolt.org} ~ In the hours and days after the death of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Democrats quickly raised their voices to condemn any Republican plan to block them from rushing to fill that most crucial vacancy... When Republicans suggested waiting until after the election, Democrats scoffed at them. But back in 1992 when Vice President Joe loose lips-Biden was a Delaware senator and chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee under President George H.W. Bush, he made a rather vociferous plea for President Bush to hold off on naming a nominee, if and when a vacancy arose, as a "majority of his predecessors" did. At the time of loose lips-Biden's remarks, there was no empty court seat. http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/flashback-sen-biden-staunchly-advis...

Here’s Why Insurance Premiums Are ‘High and Rising’
for Obamacare Enrollees
Mariana Barillas
.
.
{dailysignal.com} ~ Rising health insurance premiums under nObamacare will continue to hit Americans this year, according to a new report from the Congressional Budget Office... “High and rising premiums for private health insurance are a matter of concern for nObamacare enrollees. They also affect the federal budget, because the federal government subsidizes most premiums—directly or indirectly—at a cost of roughly $300 billion in fiscal year 2016,” the CBO said. The nonpartisan agency and the staff of Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation projected that in 2016, “the average premium for an employment-based insurance plan will be about $6,400 for single coverage and about $15,500 for family coverage.”        http://dailysignal.com/2016/02/16/heres-why-insurance-premiums-are-...

New Poll Confirms Democrats 
Okay With Socialism

{legalinsurrection.com} ~ The term ‘socialist’ once was used as an epithet in American politics. Perhaps no more... In a year in which Bernie Sanders, a self-described ‘Democratic Socialist,’ is running a competitive primary campaign for the White House, a new survey finds that a healthy portion of Democratic primary voters are favorably inclined toward socialism. Nearly six-in-ten Democratic primary voters believe socialism has a ‘positive impact on society,’ according to polling conducted this month for the right-leaning issue advocacy group American Action Network and provided to POLITICO.

World Council of Churches 
Demonizes Israel - Again
Thomas Smith

The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem, Israel
.
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ It was an impressive group of seasoned activists for Palestine who gathered for a ten-page prefabricated liturgy during an hour-long church service... The few people in the pews were to be sensitized about an alleged injustice to the Palestinian people: the supposed deprivation of rightful quantities of water by supposedly evil Israelis. In order to bring some action into this otherwise flow of distorted information, each participant got a cross of ash on his forehead -- possibly one of the few remnants of the Christian custom of Lent. In regular Lenten services, for seven weeks until Easter, solemn memories of divine mercy on the sinners of the world take center stage for Christians. But not in this liturgy. Center stage was instead given solemnly to committing a sin of evil speech: launching a lie about an Israeli-made water shortage suffered by Palestinians, a sin that all present were invited to commit daily for the next seven weeks; a sin in which all the member churches of the WCC are invited to participate. Those leaders of the Protestant churches, turned into political propagandists without even any hindrance, used the pulpit of Jerusalem unjustly to call upon the Protestant faithful worldwide to listen to Palestinian water libels against the State of Israel. This liturgy abused the biblical readings as a means of invigorating the equally false Kairos Palestine message, that Israel takes the Land of Palestine and has no right to be where it is.       http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/7460/world-council-churches-israel

Black Lives Matter Slams ‘Racist’ Library For Not
Barring Whites From Meetings
Jeff Dunetz
.
.
{lidblog.com} ~ For months, the Nashville chapter of Black Lives Matter had been meeting at the North Branch Library in Nashville, Tennessee at the exclusion of white people... Library officials had assumed during that time that their meetings had been made open to the public, until one library customer alerted officials of a meeting advertisement indicating that white people were not invited. Library officials then notified the Black Lives Matter group of the public library’s policy about meetings, namely that they are to be open to the public and the news media, and the group may not exclude anyone. This news outraged the Black Lives Matter activists, and they decided to relocate to a Methodist church nearby where they reiterated that only “black or non-black people of color” were allowed to participate. They attributed the public library’s policy to “white supremacy in our local government.” http://lidblog.com/black-lives-matter-slams-racist-library-for-not-...

Almost 90,000 dangerous illegal immigrants go free
PAUL BEDARD
.
.
{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ Nearly 60 percent of illegal immigrants identified by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as criminal threats are not deported and are eventually released... the latest example of the nObama administration's failed immigration policy. Internal ICE figures show that in fiscal 2015, the agency encountered 152,393 illegal immigrants labeled a criminal threat, mostly in jails, but charged 64,116. About another 88,000 were not processed for deportation, according to the Center for Immigration Studies' Jessica Vaughan. The numbers are even worse for those who ICE asks local police and sheriffs to detain but never collect. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/almost-90000-dangerous-illegal-im...

nObama Makes Last-Ditch Effort 
to Close Gitmo
.
.
{newsmax.com} ~ President Barack nObama released his long- awaited plan for closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba... saying transferring as many as 60 of the detainees captured during the war on terrorism would eliminate a recruiting tool for extremists and save the U.S. money. “For many years it’s been clear that our detention facility at Guantanamo Bay does not advance our fight against terrorism,” nObama said in a statement at the White House. The continued existence of the prison “doesn’t not advance our national security, it undermines it,’’ he said. The proposal, demanded by lawmakers who have resisted nObama’s attempts to close the facility, calls for spending up to $475 million to transfer 30 to 60 of the detainees to facilities in the U.S. There are 13 potential sites that could be used for the prisoners, but the plan outlined by the Pentagon doesn’t identify a specific location. nObama is undermining our national security.        http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/US-attacks-prison-justice/2016/02/...

EPA Spends $15,000 to Give 
‘TrashWalls’ to the Poor
 Elizabeth Harrington
.
.
{freebeacon.com} ~ The Environmental Protection Agency is investing nearly $15,000 to provide walls made out of trash to the poor to heat their homes and reduce their carbon footprints... The project is being financed through an EPA student design competition for “Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet.” The program provides funding for college students to test green energy ideas. Past projects include a device to monitor how long hotel guests spend in the shower. Students at Washington State University came up with “TrashWalls.” The university received $14,798 in taxpayer funding to build insulation made from solid waste to combat what it calls the “perverse incentives” of renters having to pay utility bills.      http://freebeacon.com/issues/epa-spends-15000-to-give-trashwalls-to...

Radical Canadian Imam: 
"Rome Will Be Conquered"
.
.
{investigativeproject.org} ~ A radical Canadian imam called for Muslims to "look forward" as "Rome will be conquered," in a Friday sermon posted on the Internet on Feb. 16 and translated by the Middle East Monitoring Research Institute (MEMRI)... "The prophecies of the Prophet Muhammad came true. But some prophecies have not come true yet. Look forward to it, because the Prophet Muhammad said that Rome would be conquered! It will be conquered," preached Imam Shaban Sherif Mady. Mady, based in Edmonton, also spoke of restoring the "rightly-guided" Islamic Caliphate. His reference to conquering Rome mirrors a similar call by Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.        http://www.investigativeproject.org/5168/radical-canadian-imam-rome...

Clinton Email Scandal Gets Worse
 Tom Fitton
.
.
{judicialwatch.org} ~ Judicial Watch does more than almost anyone else in DC to educate the public about the duplicity of high ranking government officials.  I have another extraordinary example of this in the Clinton email scandal.
.
JW just recently obtained State Department records showing that the nObama agency asked Hilly Clinton to return emails in July 2014. This contradicts statements made in court that State only requested via a November 2014 letter a version of which was sent to several former secretaries of state that Mrs. Clinton return records to the State Department. Other new emails show the State Department has separate policies for handling the documents of State Department senior officials “and the rest of the department.”
.
The emails are found in a batch of 189 pages of documents produced under court order in a major Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit specifically seeking all of Clinton’s emails and records about her email practices.
.
An astonishing email from Cheryl Mills, Hilly Clinton’s former counselor and chief of staff, to David E. Wade, then-chief of staff to Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry, shows that the State Department asked for the Clinton emails in July 2014.
.
Judicial Watch filed this new email with U.S. District Court Judge Emmett Sullivan, who is now considering whether to grant discovery in another JW lawsuit seeking information on the “special government employee” status of Huma Abedin. The court specifically asked the State Department about how and when it requested that Mrs. Clinton return records. In our latest court filing, Judicial Watch states:
.
This Mills email indisputably shows that the State Department first asked Mrs. Clinton to return records as late as July 2014, not November 2014 as the State Department would have this Court and Judicial Watch believe.
.
Hilly Clinton also misled the American people, as she suggested during her infamous March 2015 United Nations press statement that she turned over the emails only after a request in October 2014 and responded “right away.” In fact, these new emails show it took at least five months for her to turn over only half of the emails in question.
.
Another email, on the heels of the initial Clinton email story in the New York Times, details how a top State Department official tried to allay the concerns of National Archivist Paul Wester about the Clinton email issue. Margaret Grafeld, deputy assistant secretary of global information systems, recounts to other top State Department officials a March 3, 2015, call with National Archives:
.
I just had a very cordial 45 minute conversation with Paul Wester regarding the press coverage of the HRC email personal account and State records, focusing on State actions and those NARA will take today.
.
I explained to Paul the environment in which State operates and the bifurcated management of records for principals vs the rest of the Department, as well as steps that M and others have initiated to ensure that we are compliant with laws and regulations.
.
In short, we can expect a letter from Paul to me later today covering the alienation a legal term of art of the former Secretary’s records [Redacted] requesting an explanation both of what happened and what we are doing to remedy the situation. I requested that he cc M on the letter as the Senior Agency Official for Records Management, which shall be done.
.
I will share the letter with you all as soon as I receive it.
.
Don’t you love the phrase “bifurcated management of records for principals vs. the rest of the Department”!  That phrase is Orwellian bureaucratese for: “We treated Hilly Clinton as if she were above the law.”
.
The special treatment of Hilly Clinton continued after she left the State Department. Another email suggests the State Department provided Mrs. Clinton’s lawyers with a “two drawer safe” in which to store classified emails from the Clinton email server. The documents also show that a report was to be prepared regarding security issues with the Clinton emails, which included a security inspection made of the Clinton lawyers’ offices. One related email states:
.
Please ask the appropriate DS subject matter experts to contact Clinton lawyer Kathleen Turner to arrange for appointment to do a thorough security review to include physical security of area/safe in which document/electronic versions are being kept, who has access to the area/safe, do those individuals have appropriate clearances, when the electronic version is uploaded on a computer is it a stand-alone computer, when the disk/thumb drive is removed is any residual information deleted from the computer and any other appropriate questions. This review/inspection needs to be carried out as soon as possible.
.
The records also show that, as of December 2, 2014, the Select Committee on Benghazi was still in the dark about the separate Clinton email system. Mrs. Clinton would return some of the requested emails to the State Department on December 5, 2014, but the Select Committee was not informed of this transaction until March 2015. In fact, a December 29, 2014, letter from Mr. Kendall responding to the December 2 request for documents simply refers to the Committee’s request to the State Department with no mention of the Clinton email transfer that took place over three weeks earlier.
.
Last week, this same lawsuit produced records that included a State Department letter to Hilly Clinton’s lawyers that includes a list of classified records to be either deleted or returned to the State Department. In September 2015, Judicial Watch released State Department documents showing a nearly five-month gap in the emails that Clinton chose to return to the State Department. Shortly afterward, Judicial Watch released correspondence from Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy asking Hilly Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, to destroy or return all copies of a classified email “forwarded by Jacob Sullivan to Secretary Clinton … Subject: Fw: FYI – Report of arrests – possible Benghazi connection.” Kendall rejected the request, as Congress and other investigators had demanded electronic records be preserved.  The correspondence also shows Hilly Clinton ignored a demand to turn over all electronic copies of the approximately 55,000 pages of emails she previously returned in paper form.
.
The State Department and Mrs. Clinton have been misleading the American people, the Congress, and the courts about when the State Department asked her for the government emails she took with her when she left State. The new emails show that Hilly Clinton was specifically and separately asked for her government emails months earlier than what the State Department represented to the courts and what Clinton told the American people. These new documents ought to be of keen interest to the FBI and federal prosecutors investigating Hilly Clinton and her colleagues in the nObama administration.  Were the White House and John hanoi-Kerry in on this deception?
.
You can see how the Clinton email controversy is only worsening. So as America waits for the FBI and a compromised Justice Department to act – and as Congress is completely AWOL – your JW is doing the work of getting to the truth about this truly historic scandal.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
