The Sunlight Foundation points out that the Clinton corruption involved in their foundation, which operates as a slush fund.
According to the New York Post, the Sunlight Foundation has respectable Leftist credentials; it was “once run by leading progressive Democrat and Fordham Law professor Zephyr Teachout.”
Bill Allison is a senior fellow with the Sunlight Foundation. He recently said, “It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons.”
Indeed it does.
Other watchdog groups are also wary of the Clinton Foundation. The Charity Navigator is one of them.
The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month.
The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $ 140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $ 9 million on direct aid.
The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.
On its 2013 tax forms, the most recent available, the foundation claimed it spent $ 30 million on payroll and employee benefits; $ 8.7 million in rent and office expenses; $ 9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $ 8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $ 8.5 million on travel. None of the Clintons are on the payroll, but they do enjoy first-class flights paid for by the Foundation.
In all, the group reported $ 84.6 million in “functional expenses” on its 2013 tax return and had more than $ 64 million left over — money the organization has said represents pledges rather than actual cash on hand.
Some of the tens of millions in administrative costs finance more than 2,000 employees, including aid workers and health professionals around the world.
But that’s still far below the 75 percent rate of spending that nonprofit experts say a good charity should spend on its mission.
Charity Navigator, which rates nonprofits, recently refused to rate the Clinton Foundation because its “atypical business model . . . doesn’t meet our criteria.”
Charity Navigator put the foundation on its “watch list,” which warns potential donors about investing in problematic charities. The 23 charities on the list include the Rev. Al Sharpton’s troubled National Action Network, which is cited for failing to pay payroll taxes for several years.
Does anyone seriously think this information wasn’t available in 2007? Notice that Hillary Clinton knew that she was probably going to run in 2016, yet she didn’t work diligently to solve the problems at the Clinton Foundation and make it operate like a real charity. She was that certain that she would get a free pass.
OK, if there is a picture that you would find in the dictionary beside the word “stupid,” perhaps Mayor of Baltimore Stephanie Rawlings-Blake would be the face you would see. Following the rioting that has occurred in the streets of her town, the mayor actually went on national television and told the public that the City of Baltimore “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that.”
“I worked with the police and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters were able to exercise their right to free speech,” Mayor Rawlings-Blake told reporters. “It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.”
Then she added, “We worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”
OK, first thing is first, Baltimore… you people are absolutely brain-dead if you continue to allow this mayor to stay in office, and frankly, you get what you deserve by leaving her in place.
Second, understand that the right of free speech is not to destroy. It is to speak that which is truthful and right.
The fact that Mayor Rawlings-Blake gave space to those wanting to destroy makes her and any police who followed her lead accessories to the property damage that occurred in the city of Baltimore. The city did nothing when New Black Panthers leader Malik Shabazz encouraged the rioting. Furthermore, citizens of Baltimore you now have your mayor openly admitting that on video. I suggest that those who have had their property damaged by rioters sue Baltimore Police and Mayor Rawlings-Blake individually for their complicity in these criminal acts. Additionally, call for the arrest of every rioter present that can be identified (You can begin with this moron throwing a barricade).
As a side note, in a similar manner as I stated when there were some of these race rioters who wanted to stir things up in Florida just ahead of the George Zimmerman verdict, had I been mayor, I would have instructed every citizen to be well armed and deal with these violent criminals on the street to protect life and property. My office would have come along to either bring justice on those still living or carry away the dead (a good riddance to society). Order would have been maintained. There would have been no space given to criminals to destroy other people’s property at all, zero, zip, nada.
The fact that those elected to do a job are failing to do it only demonstrates how lawless the people have become because they tolerate it. They hold neither the criminals that perpetrate the crimes responsible nor do they hold those in authority who are charged with bringing justice to bear on those evildoers to a high standard (Rom. 13:1-5).
It’s time the people demanded that the mayor and the police officers who did nothing be arrested, along with the people that actually committed crimes, and brought to justice!

Our troops have faced disappointment upon disappointment until they finally concluded that America just doesn’t care.
As the mother of a fallen Navy SEAL killed in action on August 6, 2011, I spend a lot of time talking to men and women who have served this nation since the towers fell on that fateful morning of September 11, 2001. Young adults who launched themselves into action with reckless abandon, believing in their hearts that their sacrifice—their commitment to the cause—would make an impact on American security.
As I stare into their beleaguered, weary faces and listen to stories of betrayal after betrayal, the same sentiment seems to linger at the close of each conversation, “We have no faith left in American leaders.” Through tense jaw they say, “There is no plan. There has been no leadership for years.” Or, “I took Tikrit once. Why should I do it again when no one plans to hold it?”
Those words are a stench to my soul because I know they are true.
What was gained has been lost. What was lost, decimated. Our war fighters’ courage and conviction to “get the bad guys” was no match for politics and power.
No plan. No path to victory. Just disappointment upon disappointment until our brave war fighters finally concluded that America just doesn’t care.
And now Gold Star families across this nation are forced to conclude—and somehow accept—that our sons and daughters are gone and nothing was gained in exchange for their sacrifice. They gave their everything—all of their tomorrows. And their leaders turned their proverbial backs.
As of 2013, less than one half of one percent of Americans served this nation in the military. Fine tune that number to the actual men and women who did the “heavy lifting” of time in combat, and the percentage is even more staggering. For each man or woman engaged in battle, approximately six remained well behind the front lines, executing their service in strategic support roles.
So few now carry the weight of so many.
The average age of those who lost their lives in Iraq or Afghanistan is an unimaginable 26 years young. With their whole lives in front of them, they fearlessly followed the charge of war, but had no idea just how weak-willed and risk-averse their leaders would become.
Over 50,000 came home wounded, forever changed. Untold numbers of households bear the scars of grief and tragedy and now must ask themselves—as do I—“What was it all for?”
These heroes fought night after night in gruesome battles under restrictive, deadly Rules of Engagement, against enemies who wore no uniform and fought by no rules.
America’s veterans have been put through hell. We need to rally for them, encircle them with the same level of integrity they gave us when they signed their name on that dotted line. They must know that America loves, appreciates, and honors them.
That’s why I’m traveling with Concerned Veterans for America to 23 cities around the nation for the 2015 Defend Freedom Tour. If you love this nation and you love those who’ve served, please find a location near you and join the movement. You can learn more at www.defendfreedomtour.com.
Those of us who’ve given our very best in the name of freedom are begging you to fight—to defend what our sons and daughters gave themselves for. What has passed is the past. But the future is ours to challenge. We must hold up the arms of those too weak to stand on our behalf any longer. We must engage. We must re-form ourselves into a nation worthy of such sacrifice.

“What goes around comes around,” as my father used to say. Jessica Dooley, the radical lesbian coach who called for the burning down of Memories Pizza in Indiana following the business telling a reporter that they would not cater to a “wedding” based on sodomy has been terminated.
A northern Indiana school district says it has fired a coach who tweeted about burning down a pizza shop after its owners said they wouldn’t cater a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs.
Concord Community Schools Superintendent Wayne Stubbs confirmed to The Goshen News that Jessica Dooley was terminated on Monday.
Dooley had been suspended since April 1 after she suggested burning down Memories Pizza in Walkerton over the owners’ support for a new religious objects law that critics called anti-gay.
ABC57 reporter Alyssa Marino asked Crystal O’Connor if their business would cater a “wedding” based on sodomy.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” she told Marino.
“That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual,” her father Kevin added. “They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?”
While both father and daughter said they would serve anyone that came to their restaurant to eat, including those practicing sodomy (obviously a business does not need to know what deviancy you are involved in to serve food), they could not in good conscience cater to something they are opposed to. Of course, this was a fabricated story for the media to push in order to advance the homosexual agenda.
Following that news, Dooley tweeted:
Concord Communities School issued a statement following her tweet:
As an educational institution, Concord Community Schools believes that the exchange of differing ideas, concepts, and principles is a valuable and meaningful part of the educational process. It is not necessary that everyone agree with every idea offered. It is, however, both critically important and absolutely necessary that the expression of any idea comport with the minimum expectations established by federal and state laws. The active promotion of illegal violence cannot be permitted.
Walkerton Police were notified of the threat as well and began an investigation and that case is now in the hands of county prosecutors.
The threats caused Memories Pizza to close, not knowing if it was safe for them to be open for business. As a result, a fund was set up with a goal of $ 25,000 to help the O’Connors. However, it quickly swelled to receive $ 842,000 in just three days! The O’Connors were able to reopen eight days after they closed on April 10.
I’d say Dooley got what she had coming to her, though probably she got off rather easy at this point. We’ll wait to see if prosecutors actually bring forth justice for her crime.

Administrative law judge recommends that Christian cake bakers be fined $ 135,000 for not baking a same-sex wedding cake.
Looks like the main ingredient used in Oregon administrative law judge Alan McCullough’s recipes is one hundred percent pure manure.
The Daily Signal reports,
An Oregon administrative law judge recommended today that the bakers who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding should be fined $ 135,000.
“[T]he forum concludes that $ 75,000 and $ 60,000, are appropriate awards to compensate [the same-sex couple] for the emotional suffering they experienced,” wrote Alan McCullough, administrative law judge for Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries in his proposed order.
Aaron and Melissa Klein, owners of Sweet Cakes by Melissa located in Gresham, Ore., say the fine is enough to potentially bankrupt their family of seven.
The dispute began in January 2013, when Aaron denied Rachel Cryer a wedding cake after learning there would be two brides in her wedding.
Aaron and his wife Melissa are both Christians and believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.
Rachel and her partner Laurel Bowman-Cryer, who are now married, filed a complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries under the state’s public accommodation law, which bans discrimination based on a person’s sexual orientation.
When the State establishes injustice by fiat—using bogus and completely unproved claims of “emotional suffering” (now there’s some high-proof, wretchedly aromatic male bovine droppings!)—you can guarantee the evil is just getting rolling. This is not about a cake—this is about God-hating people out to punish anyone who would dare confirm what their own conscience tells them all the time.
Step back for a moment: This terrible “suffering” was caused because someone politely declined to bake a cake. Whoa! Give me a moment to tell the families of beheaded Christians just how terrible these ladies have it; I’m sure they’ll gasp in horror.
Imagine the suffering these ladies must endure when the dryer breaks at home! Or there is a power-failure. Or… (gasp)… a restaurant tells them they’re out of peanut butter! Clearly they never heard a parent teach them about right and wrong, or tell them “no,” so I can understand this grave distress.
Wait… I feel it… reading about this decision, and completely unjust and punitive fine, has inflicted immeasurable “emotional suffering” upon me—can I sue? Oh, right… my “class” is only protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, and we all know no politician or judge pays attention to that old relic anymore.
When Will America Wake Up And See That Obama Releasing Ten More Gitmo Muslim Terrorists Is A Sign That Obama Is Moooooslim
So Obama is releasing 10 more Muslim terrorists from Gitmo by June this year. I heard from someone who guards there that they served Halal lamb to all detainees and I love lamb but the “Halal” label does not bode well with my severe case of Islamophobia which all the caring by CAIR could not remedy. Now if they serve lamb chops at Gitmo I might reconsider reverting back to terrorism, since it will make CAIR happy and since we know Obama is a 100% Moooooooooooslem (shshshsh, its a secret), I’d be all set.
One of the released terrorists is a 48-year-old Saudi prisoner and up to 10 others locked away in Guantanamo Bay are set to be released in June. Shaker Aamer (full name Shaker Abu-Rahim Muhammad Amer), whom the Guantanamo Bay files leak, and whom the US military Joint Task Force Guantanamo believed that Aamer had led a unit of fighters in Afghanistan, including the Battle of Tora Bora, while his family was paid a stipend by Osama bin Laden. The file asserts past associations with Richard Reid and Zacarias Moussaoui. The Saudi is also a British resident. Amer also trained on the use of explosives and firing surface to air missiles and lived on subsidies in Afghanistan paid by bin Laden, according to Sandra Hodgkinson, deputy assistant secretary of defense for detainee affairs. “He is involved in many important terrorist plots” said Sandra.
But a recent visit between U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron (most likely got pressured by the Saudis) and President Barack Obama in January prompted renewed lobbying from Britain for his release. But of course, upon his release, he plans to sue for one million pounds, since now the government is giving him a ‘clean bill.’ How nice. Being a terrorist is a lot easier than carrying your cross, or even worse, you might be crucified by terrorists so might as we all join Al-Qaeda or ISIS.
The U.K. has agitated unsuccessfully for Aamer’s release since at least 2010, but now it appears that Obama’s receptiveness is turning into concrete action (it’s his last term and he is going full throttle).
Cameron means for Aamer to return to London when released and, of course, catch the next flight to Riyadh and is perhaps why AFP reported that the country of Aamer’s relocation is currently unclear. Perhaps he would go to Las Vegas?
Saudis (according to Saudis), can never do any harm. One would rarely, if ever, find a Saudi in a western prison according to Saudis, the Muslim is ‘superior’ to non-Muslims, which we provide several cases (here).
Yunis Shokuri, a 46-year-old Moroccan, and Ahmed Abdel Aziz, a 45-year-old Mauritanian, will also be sent back to their respective home countries.
Congress will be provided with a 30-day notice of the transfer, after which point Department of Defense Secretary Ashton Carter will sign off on the process.
But while Obama is rushing to shut the prison down. Congress (which cannot figure out why a true blue American Christian like Obama would do such a thing) is trying to throw up blockades in response. On Wednesday, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida signed on as cosponsor of Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s bill from early this year to halt the transfer of high or medium-risk terror suspects out of Guantanamo.
Additionally, the ‘Moooslem’ president would be blocked from shipping detainees to any country where a previous detainee had reengaged in terrorism. The White House, unsurprisingly, has said that it will veto the bill if it ever makes its way through Congress.
Sen. Ted Cruz, also a GOP presidential contender, previously endorsed the bill yet Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Myles Caggins wants to release a total of 57 out of Gitmo instead of leaving them their to ferment or exchange them with American prisoners of war.
Truth is, there is immense public and even governmental support for terrorists and criminals, especially who originate from Saudi Arabia where not one Saudi national sentenced for crimes or terrorism charges in the United States, is according to them is guilty. The story of Ali-M Aldawsari, the Muslim terrorist who was convicted for acquiring weapons of mass destruction including plans to murder former President George W. Bush. Bush’s intended killer, was not a lone wolf. He was backed by an entire system – the wealthy and powerful Aldawsari clan – including the powerful Sheik Saud Bin Mut’ab, who hosted a support group for the terrorist, defending him publically while funding his legal team.
Just translate “We are all Khalid Dawsari” to Arabic and see just how much support the terrorist gets. The Aldawsari clan’s main website (alduwasser.net) keeps track of everything that goes with every comment in support of the terrorist linking to other supporting groups.
Take another case of one Saudi national Homaidan Al-Turki. He was found guilty and sentenced to 28 years for holding an Indonesian woman as a “sex slave” while living in Colorado. For years, the entire nation, king, princes and populace has been fighting for his release. According to court records in the United States, “once every two weeks, Mr. Al-Turki would go to her room in the basement at night and sexually molest her, including digitally penetrating her and forcing her to perform oral sex on him (Record 19:21- 22, 26, 65, 97, 99, 102; 21:41).”
Al-Turki preferred his victim to be “virgin.”
Then you have his Saudi national prison mate – Nayef Al-Yousef – whom Homaidan praised as a “consoling friend” who was sentenced to 300 years for the kidnap and murder of another Saudi named Abdul Aziz Al-Koohaji in 2001. What is not known about this crime, which we obtained from Arabic sources, is that his two accomplices in crime – Mash’al Al-Suwaidi and Tareq Dawsari – escaped to Saudi Arabia, obtained a “pardon” through influence in the upper echelons of the Saudi system, and received no prison time. Since there are no extradition treaties between the United States and Saudi Arabia, the United States was out of luck when it came to prosecuting two of the murderers.
Why were these let loose? The way it works is that the families of the victims relinquish their right to prosecute and the charges are dropped, which speaks little for the victim’s rights. Countering that is Al-Ryadh Newspaper, which praises Allah because the two “repented and grew their beards.”
Of course, Al-Yousef’s influential father at the time announced that he was working to get then-president Bush to pardon his son and thanked the Saudi leadership for their efforts to release him. But you would never find this level of connections announced in English until the presidential pardon which was requested by the government of Saudi Arabia requested for all the cases and more was leaked through Wikileaks.
In the Middle East it’s called “connections.” In Saudi Arabia, you can commit almost anything if you’re in the right family with the right government ties.
There is a litany of support with song, poetry, and media asking to release Al-Yousef.
Then there is the case for Dr. Nabil Al-Ruwais, a Saudi psychiatrist who was imprisoned for attempting to sexually harass another virgin, a two-year old girl in California. His emails indicated that Al Rowais had previously molested 2 and 10 year-old girls in Saudi Arabia. The man’s conduct – according to investigators – absolutely shocks the conscience.
What is little known about Al-Ruwais in the west – obtained from the Arabic sources – is that Al-Riwais is an accomplished figure. He is of the Ruwais family that rules the region of Yamama in Najd. They take pride in that they pledged allegiance to Muhammad Abdul Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabism. He is also student of Muhammad Bin Ibrahim, the once Mufti of Saudi Arabia. Nabil is an accomplished Muslim author on Islamic Hadith and Unitarianism who authored a volume on Islamic studies titled “The Harvest of The Times.”
In the case of Al-Turki, the Saudi government collaborates with the families to actually use their connections with president Obama to give pardon to Saudi criminals:
The calls, filming, and other special treatment he gets are bad enough but consider that he is allowed to make videos that are then used to plea for his release on Saudi national television, since he committed no crime in owning a sex slave.
A documentary is even made in his defense; filming is permitted in the prison. “Why should he pay 28 years of his life to hire an Indonesian servant?” says the host (see 1:18-1:36):
In the West, he gets air time on western media and is even allowed by the Muslim community to lead the Iftar since he was free on bond courtesy of the Saudi government:
So important are Saudi criminals and terrorists that Colorado Attorney General John Suthers traveled to Saudi Arabia to meet the King Abdullah for 3 days regarding the case.
Via CBS 4 in Denver:
“Attorney General John Suthers returned from Saudi Arabia this weekend following a 3-day trip to discuss the trial of a man convicted by a Colorado court.”
At his sentencing, Al-Turki said the following, via the New York Sun:
“Your honor, I am not here to apologize, for I cannot apologize for things I did not do and for crimes I did not commit. The state has criminalized these basic Muslim behaviors. Attacking traditional Muslim behaviors was the focal point of the prosecution.”
Then you have Prince Khalid Bin Talal visiting his family and even receiving calls from the prison cell in which the prince assured him that he will get him released soon.
Apparently unknown in the West is an announcement by Homaidan’s brother, Ahmad Al-Turki, that says the prison in Colorado has “agreed to do a prisoner exchange.”
The message is clear: No Americans are above the law, but Muslims, especially Saudis are above the law, since the law is not their Sharia.
It is all corruption at the top level.

A police raid that left a baby’s face disfigured and caused over a million dollars in medical debt got settled for a mere million dollars.
Normally, when I hear someone won a million dollar settlement from a local government I think of it as if the person had just won the lottery.
This time, the police who raided a house when they should have known there was a child present are the ones have just won a lottery. The taxpayers of Habersham County, Georgia, will be forced to pay up and make sure no charges are brought against the officers. But the victims in this case, the toddler Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh and his parents, already have more than a million dollars in medical debts because of the police attack. So they are not even being reset to zero.
As Reason.com reports,
The SWAT team that raided the house in Cornelia, based on a $ 50 meth purchase by a police informant, found no drugs or weapons. They were looking for the Phonesavanhs’ nephew, Wanis Thonetheva, an alleged meth dealer who no longer lived there. Police arrested Thonetheva later that day at a different location without incident, despite the fear of armed resistance that supposedly justified the paramilitary assault that sent Bou Bou to the hospital. Habersham County Sheriff Joey Terrell, whose officers participated in the raid along with cops from Cornelia, initially promised to pay the Phonesavanhs’ medical expenses, which reportedly total more than $ 1 million, but the Habersham County Board of Commissioners reneged on that commitment.
Yesterday Andrea Harper, the board’s chairwoman, sought to paper over that decision. “The events of May 28, 2014, were undoubtedly tragic, affecting the lives of many people in our community,” she said. “Over the last few months the board of county commissioners has sought a way to bring some measure of closure to this matter while doing what is right, both for the Phonesavanh family and the law enforcement officers involved.” Harper said the settlement includes “protection of our officers and our county,” which presumably means none of the cops can be held personally liable for damages. Instead taxpayers, as usual, will pick up the tab for police violence.
So the police will never lose anything over this. And the County board gets to sweep the real victims out of sight by referring to a vague group: “the lives of many people in our community.”
Why did the Phonesavanhs settle for so little? Jacob Sullum at Reason.com guesses that they were told the prosecution would blame them for putting the child in harm’s way. Even if they allegedly knew that their relative was engaged in some illegal activity, they still had no reason to expect that the cops would walk past their van at three in the morning, ignoring the child seats in side, and lob a flash bang grenade into their child’s playpen/crib without looking.
Besides, the only reason they were in Georgia was because their Wisconsin home had burned down. This wasn’t a voluntary vacation they were on.
Here is the mother a day or two after the event.
Was this woman being treated justly? Does a settlement that leaves the deputies at their jobs and doesn’t even cover medical expenses incurred thus far give justice to her burned child?

The folks at Media Matters have long been a thorn in the sides of conservatives everywhere. For years the liberal media has pretended that Media Matters was some kind of objective media watchdog or think tank – when the truth was far seedier. Media Matters has always existed to spin, spin, spin liberal failures into victories and conservative comments into scandals. And they’ve done their job fairly well.
So it’s nice when Media Matters steps into a trap of their own making. They recently chose to enter the Clinton scandalpalooza fray by defending the Clintons from accusations of corruption, bribery and criminality. The only problem is that these accusations didn’t come from conservative sources like Fox News, Drudge or Breitbart… they came from the New York Times and respected journalists like Peter Schweizer, Jo Becker and Mike McIntire. So when Media Matters went on the assault to defend the Clintons, the liberal media responded incredulously and finally unmasked Media Matters for what they truly are – Partisan Hacks who Lie to Cover for Democrat Failures.
Watch as Media Matters Gets Dismantled.
Alex Wagner: Jeremy, there’s also the question of Bill Clinton, independent of whether the Secretary was doing anything that favored Clinton Foundation donors. There are the actions and the speeches and the money taken by Bill Clinton personally. The Washington Post reports that Bill Clinton was paid $ 26 million in speech fees by companies and organizations that were also major donors. You know, what happens to Bill Clinton’s activities going forward? And I guess I wonder what you think happens to CGI (Clinton Global Initiative) between now and November of 2016?
Jeremy Peters: The Clinton campaign is certainly already taken some steps to try to get ahead of public relations problems like that, for example, Hillary resigned from the board. I think they’re going to have to be more transparent about the speaking fees because those questions are just going to keep on piling up.
What I wonder is if the Clinton message machine ever decides to kind of recalibrate and dial it back a little bit. Because right now, and this isn’t all coming from the Clinton camp itself but from the orbit around them where you have these people whose main goal is to misdirect and obfuscate every time there’s the slightest bit of criticism about the Clintons’ leadership.
Alex Wagner: Well, in their mind they’re not misinforming and obfuscating, they’re “clarifying.”
Joshua Green: I don’t think that’s true at all Alex. They know what they are doing.
Jeremy Peters: Exactly. They are definitely misdirecting here. I mean, this is what Media Matters exists to do.

Jeb Bush says that one of Obama’s best actions as President was that he “enhanced” the NSA.
When I read things like this, I wonder how Jeb Bush can possibly believe he has any chance of winning. I wonder if his campaign is some kind of bait to drive us to vote for someone else who isn’t so open about his anti-conservative beliefs.
The Intercept provides the transcript. Bush was being interviewed by Michael Medved on his talk radio program:
Medved: If you were to look back at the last seven years, almost, what has been the best part of the Obama administration?
Jeb Bush: I would say the best part of the Obama administration would be his continuance of the protections of the homeland using the big metadata programs, the NSA being enhanced. Advancing this — even though he never defends it, even though he never openly admits it, there has been a continuation of a very important service, which is the first obligation, I think of our national government is to keep us safe. And the technologies that now can be applied to make that so, while protecting civil liberties are there. And he’s not abandoned them, even though there was some indication that he might.
Bush is lying. The NSA has not made us safer. It has allowed us to be stalked by rogue agents who were only revealed because they confessed. We will never know how much the NSA has allowed us to be abused by agents who were not so forthcoming. The NSA has left us vulnerable to hackers because it would rather be able to spy on us than stop other people from spying on us. And the NSA has hurt the U.S. tech industry because no one trusts our companies to be able to offer security and privacy. They believe that U.S. tech companies are infiltrated by the NSA. And they are probably right.
Bush is making the Orwellian surveillance state the centerpiece of his campaign.

Could Pamela Geller Have Addressed the Next Jihadist in America at Brooklyn College? See For Yourself
Well, I have to tell you, Pamela Geller is quite the woman! She stepped into the lion’s den this past week, having accepted an invitation to speak to students at Brooklyn College. However, what was amazing to watch was the complete disrespect of so many that were there, many of which appeared to be either Islamists or supporters of Islamists and jihad.
Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself and see not only the boldness, but the composure that Geller demonstrates as she addresses both adults and adolescents… and maybe the next jihadist that makes the news.
During the Q&A session, though many attacked her, she pointed out that she has stood up for the women in Islam. Geller has indeed done that. She has been at the heart of trying to care for women who are fleeing Islam. She has exposed the “honor killing” (we call it murder) of Islamists both in America and abroad. She has been the one to look out after women who don’t want to wear hijab, which can often end in a beating or a death. Yet, here’s Geller standing her ground amidst the persecution of Islamic “useful idiots.”
So, what else happened? Well, at least many spoke out ignorantly, of course. There was this little darling. Obviously, this is girl who has been brainwashed by the Islamists and leftists in the university, or maybe the hate might be more apparent if she actually looked in the mirror.
Or what of this little Muslim sympathizer? By the way, the claims of Muslims engaging in bestiality (as well as sodomy) is widely documented. Furthermore, all these people can do with the issue of Hitler and his ties to Islam is shout and shoot, but the historical evidence is actually on Geller’s side… and they know it! BTW, Miss Smarty Pants thought she was clever to give out her email address. I suggest that some American patriots school her on what it means to be an American (Please be polite. We’re not like these people.)
Notice that she claims that they are there to protect themselves, Muslims and Arab students. Why do they need that protection when Muslim Brotherhood front groups and designated terror groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations are ready and willing to do that? The obvious question is, from whom Gul? Who was threatening anyone? Who was calling for a jihad against them? Was someone rigging explosives to murder them? Did Geller have a machete behind her back, ready to saw off someone’s head? Oh, silly me! I forgot, only those who hold to the religion of Muhammad do things like that… and you’re protecting them.
All was not bad though. At least one supporter of Geller wrote to encourage her and tell her what she sensed in the room, which should be quite evident to anyone watching the video. Here’s what she wrote:
Dear Ms. Geller:
I came to hear you speak at Brooklyn College last night, and I agree that the behavior of the students was disgraceful—and frightening. When I first arrived and saw the large number of Muslims in attendance, I wondered if there might actually be some intelligent discourse with them. I would have liked to ask if any considered themselves moderate. Are they appalled at the actions of ISIS, and if so where are there voices against such atrocities?
But these young people showed themselves just a few seconds into your speech. They were unruly brats intent on disrupting the event. And—although an administrator had warned the students beforehand that anyone showing disruptive behavior would be ejected—he and Brooklyn College campus police stood by and did nothing.
So many of today’s college students seem to want to shut down the entire First Amendment. If anyone says anything they disagree with, they react with childish rants. If a speaker has a different point of view on say, the so-called “rape culture” on college campuses, students issue “trigger warnings” and retreat to “safe rooms” designed to comfort those who have been traumatized by someone’s having disagreed with them. Apparently, college has turned into overpriced nursery school.
Last night, there was a frightening dimension to the hecklers. Many appeared to have been brainwashed. I wonder how many of those young women, for example, will wind up traveling to the Middle East to become “jihadi wives.” And how many of those young men will wind up joining ISIS or forming similar groups here in the U.S.?
I appreciate what you do, and I admire your courage in continuing to speak before such an unruly mob.
In the aftermath of Geller’s Q&A, there are chants of “free Palestine” and other rhetoric.
One guy couldn’t determine what was said, but did say this about the woman leading the chant: “I couldn’t understand what he said, but that b*tch deserves a brick to her f***ing head.”
As a final note, take a good look at these faces from the event. After all, we are told Islam is a “religion of peace,” right? But time and time again, those that involve themselves in jihad attacks are later covered for by those closest to them as peaceful and loving right up to the moment they go jihad. Is anyone buying this? I submit to you that you might be looking at a future jihadist in these photos, and I think their obvious disrespect and unruly behavior only goes to demonstrate what we are going to have to deal with in America in this and future generations.
