Judicial Watch

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted a Judicial Watch request to issue an order requiring the IRS to provide answers by June 12, 2015, on the status of the Lois Lerner emails the IRS had previously declared lost.  Judicial Watch raised questions about the IRS’ handling of the missing emails issue in a court filing on June 2, 2015, demanding answers about Lois Lerner’s emails, which had been recovered from backup tapes.  Judge Sullivan issued the court order on June 4, 2015.

Judicial Watch has argued that the IRS misled the court and Judicial Watch by withholding the truth about the existence and content of the backup tapes.  In response to Judicial Watch’s litigation and pressure from Congress, some of Lerner’s emails had been recovered by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) despite testimony from the IRS Commissioner and representations to Judge Sullivan that Lerner’s emails had been irretrievably lost and destroyed. In its June 2 filing, Judicial Watch detailed:

Iraqi Ambassador Warns US: ISIS Has Created “Thousands & Thousands of Bin Ladens”

Gateway Pundit

Lukman Faily, Iraq’s Ambassador to the United States, warned that ISIS has created “thousands and thousands” of Bin Ladens while the West dithered on fighting the Islamist State in Iraq-Syria.
WTOP reported:

A top Iraqi diplomat is warning the West has been too slow to address the global crisis presented by the Islamic State, and may soon have to pay a heavy cost.

Lukman Faily, Iraq’s Ambassador to the U.S., told WTOP in an exclusive interview that while the west is intellectualizing ISIL — a phenomenon he likens to global warming — Iraq’s ancient heritage, its culture and the rest of the world’s security is being devoured by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL, ISIS) violent ideology.

“We have over 30 car bombs a month. What type of society can put up with that,” he asked.

Faily suggested some influential people in the U.S. and beyond have not been willing to deal with the power “of the cancer that ISIS is.”

“You had one Bin Laden in Afghanistan, but now you will have thousands like Bin Laden (fighting) with ISIS all over the world. People say the homeland is not threatened and therefore this is not our problem. This is a regional problem. This is not helpful for the U.S. or Iraq moving forward,” Faily said.

Acknowledging Iraq is largely responsible for rise of ISIL, Faily said the proliferation of the group’s violent ideology is not an internal Iraqi problem.

“Granted, we have our own political, social and economic problems which in part led to this, I give you that. But the majority of the jihadists came over from Syria, while other countries allowed them to come over from Syria.”

“We are the frontlines, we need help and we are asking other countries is why would you let them (ISIL) have breathing space,” Faily said.

More than 40 countries have joined the fight against ISIL since July of 2014, including a U.S. led coalition comprised of many of Iraq’s regional neighbors, but there is concern the group is rapidly spreading beyond the region. Former Central Intelligence Agency director Michael V. Hayden told WTOP ISIL is a direct threat right now to the homeland.

U.S. Embassy in Indonesia Celebrated “Green” Independence Day in June Out of Respect for Islam

Independent Sentinel

Our Indonesian-at-heart president had the U.S. embassy in Indonesia celebrate Independence Day a month early on June 4th out of respect for Ramadan. Our embassy is considered U.S. territory – it’s a sovereign entity – but Obama is a foreigner at heart.

He wasn’t brought up as a typical American. His years in Indonesia combined with his communist background led us to where we are today with a president who is literally destroying our Republic.

Independence Day is our most sacred holiday and to have our representatives in Indonesia act in a subservient manner is extremely insulting to the citizens of this country. Independence Day can’t be changed. It is July 4th.

Independence Day is a big deal in our embassies. Changing the day was a powerful statement.

I wonder if the Indonesian embassies in the United States will move Ramadan.

Restoring Liberty

The “special project” this team was given? Concealing information from Congress.

Federal Agency Falsifies Scientific Data to Cover Lack of Global Warming

Moonbattery

If you can’t trust Harvard studies because of furtive government involvement, obviously data that comes directly from Big Brother can be routed directly to the circular file:

New climate data by NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] scientists doubles the warming trend since the late 1990s by adjusting pre-hiatus temperatures downward and inflating temperatures in more recent years. …

To increase the rate in warming, NOAA scientists put more weight on certain ocean buoy arrays, adjusted ship-based temperature readings upward, and slightly raised land-based temperatures as well.

In addition to altering recent data,

Climate expert Bob Tisdale and meteorologist Anthony Watts noted that to “manufacture warming during the hiatus, NOAA adjusted the pre-hiatus data downward.”

“If we subtract the [old] data from the [new] data… we can see that that is exactly what NOAA did,” Tisdale and Watts wrote on the science blog Watts Up With That.

“It’s the same story all over again; the adjustments go towards cooling the past and thus increasing the slope of temperature rise,” Tisdale and Watts added. “Their intent and methods are so obvious they’re laughable.”

Our rulers know that global warming propaganda does not have to pass the laugh test. Combining those who desperately want to believe out of ideological loyalty with cretins who believe whatever their televisions tell them produces the numbers needed to wage war on our liberty and our standard of living in the name of a hoax.

NOAA’s updated data was also criticized by climate scientists with the libertarian Cato Institute. Scientists Richard Lindzen, Patrick Michaels and Chip Knappenberger argue the adjustments made by NOAA were “guaranteed to put a warming trend in recent data.”

Cato scientists also argued that NOAA’s new data is an outlier compared to other global temperature records, which overwhelmingly show a hiatus in warming.

So what? The establishment media can be counted on to ignore them, just as it ignores that according to satellite data, there has been no global warming for 19 years, which completely debunks the theory that rising CO2 emissions significantly raise the temperature.

Free Speech Alert! State Department will Ban All Online Discussion of Technical Aspects of Firearms/Ammunition

413795304_obama_shreds_constitution_answer_1_xlarge

Independent Sentinel

The State Department has moved ahead with a ban on all online speech of technical aspects of firearms and ammunition. They will seriously erode the First and Second Amendment – both at the same time – with this new supposed “clarification” of existing regulations and they are doing it without hesitation.

A new regulation published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register could ban discussion of the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition on blogs online, videos and web forums unless the State Department’s unelected bureaucrats give permission first.

If you want to create “Space to Destroy”, why not go all the way?

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is all about creating “Space to Destroy” for misguided youth. But most of Baltimore still hasn’t been destroyed. It’s time to bring in the talented folks who destroyed Syria to get the job done.

Ann at the invaluable Refugee Resettlement Watch blog has the story.

Islamic Relief USA is helping immigrants and refugees to find promising opportunities as instruments of economic and community growth in Baltimore.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake recognized the successes of this program at a local film screening this past Wednesday. She congratulated prospective home buyers and urged non-profits to continue supporting this work.

In Next City’s film “Building Resilience in Baltimore through Immigration,” immigrants are portrayed as key actors in societal change.
