Comment on last blog post
The number of "disabled" keeps rising because they really should be called "enabled." The government and ACLU have ensured that those addicted to pot, crack, coke, meth, benzos, Spice, alcohol, etc. do not have to pee in a cup to pick up their disability checks. They can spend it on more of the same with no guarantee of a job to prevent turning to crime once the checks run out nor therapy to change their addicted ways. Gov. Scott in FL tried to ask this of disability claimants in FL and the ACLU declared it was "unconstitutional." Also he tried to test FL employees (as most private businesses do) and the ACLU sued again and won on both counts, finally settled. (They're very good at getting God out of the country and promoting things that make absolutely no sense....when the private sector must comply or be terminated but the public sector can watch porn, do drugs, drink, etc. without testing/checks.) And then there are the lawyers who make a living of getting "disability" for those who really are not disabled. "Say no to drugs" sure disappeared under Obama, didn't it? --Barb

Canadian Charity's Revenue Dropped Substantially The Year Hillary Clinton Resigned As Secretary Of State
A review of financial documents for the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada) shows the charity’s revenue dropped substantially in 2013, the year Hillary Clinton resigned as Secretary of State. ...ABC News reported last week that Bill Clinton’s speaking fees doubled and even tripled after Hillary became Secretary of State. The International Business Times published a list of ten companies that paid Bill Clinton several million in speaking fees even as they had business pending with the State Department.

Did Hillary Change Her Stance on Indian Nukes in Response to Donations? By: Paul Mirengoff
Excerpt: The latest potentially damning “Clinton cash” allegation involves a 2008 nuclear agreement between India and the United States. According to Politico, Peter Schweizer says that Hillary Clinton changed her position on the agreement after Indian business and government interests flooded various Clinton enterprises with cash.

Memo: Since 2009, The State Department Required Outgoing Officials To Turn Over Emails
Excerpt: A memo sent to State Department officials last year indicates that the agency had a policy in place as early as 2009 requiring out-going officials to turn over email records when they leave office. Hillary Clinton flouted that policy when she left her position as secretary of state in February 2013. Clinton exclusively used a personal email account hosted on a private server during her time at the agency and only turned those records over a few months ago.

Clinton Charities Raked in Millions of Taxpayer Dollars. Embattled Clinton Foundation and Clinton Health Access Initiative received over $7 million (Updated). By Elizabeth Harrington
Excerpt: The Clinton Foundation and its major health charity have raked in more than $7 million from the U.S. government in recent years, according to an analysis of public conducted by the Washington Free Beacon. The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), chaired by Bill Clinton and run by the former president’s long-time associate Ira Magaziner, has received $6,010,898 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) since 2010.

The organization received an additional $2,817,398 from the CDC in FYs 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Excerpt: A.B. Stoddard, Associate Editor for the Hill said that the Clintons “did not want to be transparent,” “in their actions” and that the Clinton Foundation sounds like “a slush fund to enrich the Clintons” on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.

Hypocrite: Hillary Doesn't Like Unpaid Internships, but Clinton Foundation Sure Does. By Katie Zavadski
Excerpt: Hillary Clinton may be running for president as a champion for the middle class, but the Clinton Foundation’s interns do not get paid. “Businesses have taken advantage of unpaid internships to an extent that it is blocking the opportunities for young people to move on into paid employment,” Clinton said at UCLA in 2013. “More businesses need to move their so-called interns to employees.”

From the left: Clinton’s Democratic opponents need to smoke her out. By Dana Milbank
Excerpt: Hillary Clinton has had some bad luck lately with revelations about her secret e-mail server and foreign contributors to the Clinton Foundation. But, in one crucial area, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination has been blessed with abundant good fortune: her opponents.

BREAKING: House Ways and Means Committee Votes to Refer Lois Lerner For Criminal Charges. By Katie Pavlich 
Excerpt: The House Ways and Means Committee has voted to 23-14 along party lines to refer former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner to the Justice Department for prosecution. Although the details about exactly what charges will be have not yet been released, lawmakers are arguing Lerner has not been truthful with Congress or the IRS inspector general and leaked confidential tax information. Last time a referral like this happened, it was to Major League Baseball player Roger Clemens, who was pursued by the Department of Justice for lying to Congress but was exonerated in court.

Did White House Hold Lerner Emails to Clean Them From Implicating Obama? By Dave Jolly
Excerpt: I can’t help but wonder if the thousands of emails weren’t lost to begin with, but were being carefully cleaned up to protect those who were truly behind the scandal. Were the emails being cleaned to protect Barack Obama and were only ‘discovered’ after they have been scrubbed clean? No one has yet answered the question as to why then IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman was the most frequent visitor to the White House among Obama’s Cabinet members? In the days leading up to the targeting, Shulman was at the White House 157 times when the next most frequenting Cabinet member, Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank made only 86 visits. His top henchman, the Attorney General Eric Holder, only made 62 visitors in the same time period.

Naked, 'superhuman' paranoids begging police to save them from imaginary mobs? That's flakka!
Excerpt: One man ran naked through a Florida neighborhood, tried to have sex with a tree and told police he was the mythical god Thor. Another ran nude down a busy city street in broad daylight, convinced a pack of German shepherds was pursuing him. Two others tried separately to break into the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. They said they thought people were chasing them; one wound up impaled on a fence. (Heard on evening news feed as I was driving my mother into town; I almost drove off the road I was laughing so hard. We are in end times and the world is ass backwards....literally. Breaking into police stations for protection?? Don't tell them that in Ferguson or Baltimore. Wonder if the pine tree's bark is worse than its bite.....Apparently, flakka is an amphetamine which causes temperature spikes; hence, the clothing removal, per article. --Barb)

"Nepal" from "Globe Trot" by Mindy Belz
Local churches representing Nepal’s tiny Christian minority are pooling resources to assist in relief efforts following Saturday's earthquake. But locals also are warning against sending aid via overseas organizations that lack boots on the ground: As we’ve seen in previous disasters, that aid is getting held up at the border by government officials who (a) want a cut or (b) want to be sure proper supplies are getting in. One member of Parliament today told a UK news anchor that aid is piling up at the airport because the government has decided to tax it. We will be following at World. One group we know has boots on the ground is YWAM, and their team there has long experience working in the country.

Christie stiffs New Jersey for security travel while Walker PAC pays. By Mark Lagerkvist
Excerpt: Chris Christie has unapologetically stuck New Jersey taxpayers with the $1.15 million in Executive Protection Unit travel costs during his first five years in office, according to a New Jersey Watchdog analysis. But when Wisconsin’s Scott Walker hits the road on political journeys, those bills are being paid by his political action committee, which gets the money from campaign donations.

NASA 'Warp Drive' Could Take Spaceship to Mars in 70 Days
Excerpt: "The concept of an EM Drive as put forth by (Satellite Propulsion Research Ltd.) was that electromagnetic microwave cavities might provide for the direct conversion of electrical energy to thrust without the need to expel any propellant," they wrote. NASA scientists said the warp drive would allow man-made spaceships to reach Mars in 70 days, noted the website. "A 90 metric ton, 2 MegaWatt nuclear electric propulsion mission to Mars (would have) considerable reduction in transit times due to having a thrust-to-mass ratio greater than the gravitational acceleration of the sun," Harold "Sonny" White of the Johnson Space Center told NASA (Purportedly how the Elite hope to escape the mess they have helped craft here on earth. --Barb. Well, only a tiny fraction of the "elite" could fit on any ships we could build. And they'd find the environment on Mars much worse than anything or place on Earth. ~Bob)

More 'probable' bird flu cases in Iowa, outbreak could be U.S. biggest
Excerpt: The highly pathogenic H5 avian flu turned up in initial tests at five more farms in Iowa, including a commercial egg operation housing up to 5.5 million birds, Iowa's agriculture department said on Thursday. If the virus is confirmed at the farms in additional tests under way at a U.S. Department of Agriculture laboratory, the total number of American cases could surpass 20 million birds and result in the biggest death toll in a bird flu outbreak in U.S. history. Avian flu at the egg farm in Buena VistaCounty, where workers saw an unexpected jump in bird deaths before the flock was tested, could be the largest single farm operation to be hit in the current outbreak. (Remember, USDA, Michelle, want folks to eat more veggies; UN wants them to eat more crickets (grow faster, less pollution). --Barb)

China Puts Conciliatory Slant on Land Reclamation
Excerpt: China’s navy chief said artificial islands China has built in disputed parts of the South China Sea might in the future be used for joint rescue and disaster-relief operations, in unusually conciliatory remarks that follow stepped-up criticism in the U.S. and Asia over Beijing’s land-reclamation work.

Gun News

Excerpt: Police say the store employee was about to enter into the store with a bag under his arm when a man approached him from behind and pointed a gun at him, demanding the bag, possibly thinking there was cash inside. The employee, who also had a concealed handgun license was able to turn to his own gun, pull it out and fire four shots at the man. Two or three of those shots hit the man in the chest area.

Homeowner Shoots Intruder In West Palm Beach
Excerpt: Police said the homeowner awoke around midnight to a noise at his door. He stepped outside to investigate when police said he came face-to-face with the intruder and shot him.

Police 'deeply troubled' by artwork in Madison Central Library
Excerpt: The piece entitled "Don't Shoot" by artist Mike L'Roy aims to "startle, shock, and interrupt your reality." It depicts a young African-American child pointing what looks like a water gun at three officers, who are wearing riot gear and pointing guns back at the child. (Police should announce that, in order not to upset the artist or the librarians, they will not respond to calls from their homes at these addresses...~Bob)

Charges Filed Against Police Officers in the Death of Freddie Gray. By Pete Kasperowicz
Excerpt: Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on Friday announced criminal charges against six Baltimore City police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who suffered a fatal spine injury while in police custody and whose death sparked rioting and unrest in the city. ... All six have been charged with second-degree assault and misconduct in office, although Goodson, Porter, Rice and White are also being charged with manslaughter. Each officer could face at least 20 years in prison if charged, although the charges against Goodson could lead to 63 years in jail if they stick. Goodson is also charged with “second-degree depraved heart murder,” along with involuntary manslaughter, manslaughter by gross and criminal negligence, and second degree assault. (In the case of the SC cop who shot Walter Scott in the back, I think charges are justified. In the case of the boy in Cleveland killed with a toy gun, I think they might be justified. In the case of Michael Brown, Holder's Justice Department found there was no evidence to charge the officer, and the "Hands up, don't shoot" meme was a lie, no matter what athletes and politicians said. In this case, it's hard to know, because both the city administration and the event have been so politicized. We will see. Maybe. ~Bob)

Urban Unrest Coming To Town Near You. Latest uprising chant: 'Philly is Baltimore'
Thousands of protesters took to the streets in PhiladelphiaPennsylvania, Thursday evening, pushing their way through police lines and blocking access to a major highway. Philly joined a growing list of cities on edge after 100 cops were injured, businesses looted and burned, cars destroyed and bystanders were pummeled in Baltimore Tuesday night, resulting in Maryland calling out the National Guard to restore a degree of calm. Earlier in the day, crowds gathered for a “Philly is Baltimore” rally outside city hall and moved toward Rittenhouse Square. (Toggle down for the protest sign that reads, "Welcome to the fall of white supremacy." Community organization at its finest to bring down the USA from within. Stupid, stupid people. From "A Man For All Seasons," Robert Bolt, 1966: Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!" So, martial law to follow soon? --Barb)

Brace Yourself for More Baltimores. By Scott Rasmussen
Excerpt: The sad scenes playing out in Baltimore are made sadder by the fact that more such incidents are likely over the coming years. That's because the problems in Baltimore did not begin with the arrest and death of Freddie Gray. Tensions have been building for a very long time. Other cities from coast to coast have similar tensions ready to boil over. Some tensions are common to all cities -- pockets of economic devastation, laws that are enforced more strictly in some parts of town than others, bad apples among the police, thugs in the community and more.

New Black Panther Head: Like Founding Fathers, We Are Willing To Kill For Black Nation
Excerpt: This Week on the New Black Panther Party’s “Black Power Radio,” national chairman Hashim Nzinga said since America has “declared war on us,” evidenced by “military police in the black neighborhood” protecting the rich, the New Black Panthers should be looked upon as Founding Fathers who declare war and are “willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”... They have declared war on us and it’s nothing but state racism.”... “We have to love ourselves enough to be willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”

Sharpton Calls For DOJ To 'Take Over Policing,' 'Going To Have To Fight States' Rights'
Excerpt: Sharpton said, “we need the Justice Department to step in and take over policing in this country. In the 20th century, they had to fight states’ rights in — to get the right to vote. We’re going to have to fight states’ rights in terms of closing down police cases.” (Black liberation. Forward! What law? Who cares? And who is now head of DOJ with approval of GOP? Holder's understudy. Very scary. All with POTUS pulling the strings but apparently in absentia on the golf course, clueless until he "reads it in the news." Community organization for BLP at its finest. Maybe that's why the military helicopters are showing up parked in a rural Georgian field as if staged in readiness for martial law. --Barb)

Thugs: Baltimore Burning: $16 Million Southern Baptist Church Center for Low-Income Seniors Burned to the Ground; Christian Leaders Call on Rioters to Stop the Destruction
Excerpt: A nearly $16 million East Baltimore community center and apartment complex under construction were burned to the ground Monday night during riots that engulfed the Maryland city following the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died while in police custody earlier this month. (Burned low income housing for seniors--but you are not supposed to call them thugs. Too bad, because you can't say "mindless assholes" on TV. ~Bob)

Look Who the Mayor of Baltimore Just THANKED for Their “Help” With the Riots…
Excerpt: But it gets worse … She also took time to thank the Nation of Islam for helping her deal with the riots. Keep in mind that the leader of this group happens to be none other than Louis Farrakhan, a vicious racist with a track record for going on anti-white tirades and calling for armed insurrection. 

Who had the worst week in Washington (or Baltimore)? Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. By Chris Cillizza
Excerpt: But it may be your initial response when I tell you that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is my choice for the winner of the worst week in Washington.
How can that be, you ask? Well, because rules are made to be broken. Because Baltimore is close enough to D.C. And mostly because Rawlings-Blake’s horrendous handling of the riots that broke out in the wake of Monday’s memorial service for Freddie Gray more than makes up for the 40 miles that separate the two cities.

Ignoring Personal Responsibility Is a Riot. By Ben Shapiro
Excerpt: Hours after residents of Baltimore, Maryland, set the city aflame, President Barack Obama took to the Rose Garden to explain in professorial style just why America, under his administration, keeps watching young black men loot buildings and attack police officers. "We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals -- primarily African-American, often poor -- in ways that have raised troubling questions. And it comes up, it seems like, once a week now, or once every couple weeks," Obama said, proclaiming that police brutality against blacks amounted to a "slow-rolling crisis." He added, "This is not new, and we shouldn't pretend that it's new." Obama's disgusting implication was, of course, that a massive trend of police violence mirroring the racist police violence of the 1950s has broken out across America. That's false.

Sheriff: ‘I Was Sick To My Stomach’ After Being Told To Stand Down
Excerpt: A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County, and was also a Sergeant with the Maryland State Police. He joined Ed Norris and Steve Davis on Thursday to talk about the alleged controversial orders the police were given during the riots. Lewis said it wasn’t his intention to come to Baltimore, a drive of about two hours, but he felt it was his duty to help.

Obamacare/Government Healthcare News

Ohio House bill could save billions in medical costs each year. By Jason Hart 
Excerpt: With Medicaid spending skyrocketing due to Ohio’s Obamacare expansion, state lawmakers have introduced a bill to curb health-care costs. State Rep. Jim Butler, an Oakwood Republican, drafted House Bill 157 in an ambitious attempt to reform Medicaid and rein in health-care expenses across the board. “We have consistently poured money into an ever-expanding medical-industrial complex with a woeful return on taxpayer investment,” Butler wrote in a Dayton Daily News op-ed, noting state spending on Medicaid is expected to grow to $7.4 billion in 2017 from $4.7 billion in 2011

Almost half of Obamacare exchanges face financial struggles in the future. By Lena H. Sun and Niraj Chokshi, Washington Post
Excerpt: Nearly half of the 17 insurance marketplaces set up by the states and the District under President Obama’s health law are struggling financially, presenting state officials with an unexpected and serious challenge five years after the passage of the landmark Affordable Care Act. Many of the online exchanges are wrestling with surging costs, especially for balky technology and expensive customer call centers — and tepid enrollment numbers. To ease the fiscal distress, officials are considering raising fees on insurers, sharing costs with other states and pressing state lawmakers for cash infusions.

There Is Growing Evidence Noncitizens Are Voting. Why Isn’t the Government Doing Anything? By Kaylan L. Phillips
Excerpt: Noncitizens are registering to vote and at best, it seems the federal government’s officials don’t care about this illegal activity. At worst, it raises questions about whether some in Washington support illegal voting, so long as it supports their political agenda. The exact number of noncitizens who are voting in our elections is difficult to quantify because of the bureaucratic quagmire perpetuated by federal agencies against the (very few) states that have the resolve to attempt to verify citizenship.

Obama Admin. Won’t Let States Ask for Proof of Citizenship … On Voter Registration Form! The evidence clearly shows that non-citizens are ending up on the rolls as a result.
Excerpt: Non-citizens are voting in American elections, and the federal government refuses to do anything to stop it. Worse, the current administration seems to be doing everything they can to prevent the states from trying to stop it. .... Now, the administration will not let states even ask people to establish they are citizens when they register to vote.

Updated Satellite Data Puts a Chill on Global Warming. By Jordan Candler 
Excerpt: Remote Sensing Systems recordings, which more accurately reflect global temperatures, have perplexed many scientists ever since they revealed a global warming hiatus that’s now lasted for more than 18 years. In response, alarmists have trashed RSS findings in favor of NOAA’s complicated and flawed method. Three University of Alabama climatologists, Roy Spencer, John Christy and William Braswell, just concluded additional research on UAH Version 6, an alternative system used to study global temperatures. Not only did the new research cast further doubt on the claims of climate alarmists, but the adjustments revealed similar results to that of RSS.

Where’s the Coverage? Israel Sends More Manpower to Aid Nepal than Any Other Country
Excerpt: Israel’s aid team to the earthquake-battered Himalayan nation of Nepal is the largest in manpower of any international aid mission. Over 250 doctors and rescue personnel were part of an IDF delegation that landed Tuesday in the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, in the wake of Saturday’s magnitude-7.8 earthquake that devastated large swaths of the mountainous country, killing at least 5,000 and leaving some 8,000 wounded and tens of thousands seeking shelter and food. The Israeli group set up a field hospital with 60 beds that began operations on Wednesday in coordination with the local army hospital. 

Worth Reading: The Marshall Islands’ cautionary tale: There is a thread that runs between Obama’s policy toward Iran and his policy toward Israel. By Carolyn Glick
Excerpt: On Tuesday, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps forcibly commandeered the Maersk Tigris as navigated its way through the Straits of Hormuz. Iran controls the strategic waterway through which 40 percent of seaborne oil and a quarter of seaborne gas transits to global markets. The Maersk Tigris is flagged to the Marshall Islands. The South Pacific archipelago gained its independence from the US in 1986 after signing a treaty conceding its right to self-defense in exchange for US protection. According to the treaty, the US has “full authority and responsibility for security and defense of the Marshall Islands.” Given the US’s formal, binding obligation to the Marshall Islands, the Iranian seizure of the ship was in effect an act of war against America.

Threatened Dutch-Iranian Dissident: Attacking Free Speech A Core of Terrorism. By Abigail R. Esman
Excerpt: Afshin Ellian has a thing or two to say about terrorism. He also has a few things to say about Islam – specifically political Islam – but many don't particularly like to hear it. In fact, the threats against his life from radical Muslims, particularly in the Netherlands, where the Iranian dissident now lives, have become so frequent that at least one bodyguard accompanies him anywhere he goes. But Ellian, a professor of jurisprudence at the University of Leiden, also knows a thing or two about freedom:

“Terrorism in Africa: The Imminent Threat to the United States
Excerpt: In Chairman King’s announcement of this hearing, he rightly argued that while much attention has been given to the threats posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and al Qaeda in the heart of the Middle East and South Asia, “we must also focus on the imminent and growing threat posed by their affiliates operating in Africa.” Indeed, the jihadist organizations headquartered outside of Africa are strongly tied to various groups operating inside the continent. Both ISIS (or the Islamic State) and al Qaeda maintain international networks that stretch across Africa.

White House Says FBI Help on Warren Weinstein Ransom Not a Policy Violation
Excerpt: The White House said Thursday that it is not a violation of the government’s strict no-ransom policy for federal agents to facilitate ransom payments for hostages. Facing questions following a report in The Wall Street Journal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation helped facilitate a ransom payment to al Qaeda for hostage Warren Weinstein, a White House spokesman said that helping families pay ransom doesn’t contradict the Obama administration’s long-standing policy.

New Details From Israeli Intelligence on Planned Hamas Mega Attack in Gaza War. By Steven Emerson
Excerpt: Multiple Israeli news outlets, including the Jerusalem Post, Arutz ShevaAl Monitor, and the Times of Israel, this week reported newly declassified details of a planned surprise Hamas mega attack during the first week of the Gaza War last summer through underground tunnels built under Israeli territory. If the plot, first reported on Army Radio, had been successful, large numbers of Israeli civilians would have been slaughtered and captured.

Hundreds Of Muslim Refugees Headed To Idaho. Boise mayor lays out welcome mat: 'Diversity isn't a buzz word. It's our birthright'
Excerpt: The multicultural transformation of Idaho will continue with a planned infusion of hundreds of refugees from Muslim countries over the next one to three years. A local newspaper in Twin Falls reported that city will receive 300 mostly Syrian refugees over the next fiscal year starting Oct. 1. But WND has learned the numbers will be much larger statewide and include refugees from SyriaIraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo and possibly Somalia. (A Nazi party group and an ISIS beheading squad would also add "diversity." ~Bob)

Canadian Homeland Security Adviser Suspended for Islamist Associations
Excerpt: An adviser for Public Safety Canada was suspended following a French-language TVA report that outlines his controversial views and relationship with organizations associated with terrorist financing, Point de Bascule reports.

Excerpt: The Islamic State in Yemen claimed credit for the brutal execution of 15 Yemeni soldiers who were captured in the city of Azzan in Shabwa province earlier this month.
