Hillary and Bill Houdini

Townhall

by Cal Thomas

How do they do it? I am not the first to compare the Clintons to Harry Houdini, the great magician and escape artist, but Bill and Hillary make him look like a rank amateur.

No law seems to touch them. No regulation seems to control them. No prosecutor wants to take the risk of holding either Clinton accountable for anything. OK, Bill was impeached by a Republican House, but not convicted in the Senate.

Poll: 13% of Illegal Aliens ADMIT They Vote

thumbnailCAR9AA9A

Free Republic

As we always knew, California and American elections are filled with fraud and corruption. Thanks to a new poll, we now know that approximately 13% of illegal aliens vote. Since they are already criminals, stealing ID’s or using phony ID’s. lie to get welfare, steal jobs—why not vote as they to lose. Since they can not be deported or jailed, they have nothing to lose. Obama is protecting these law breakers. Could this be why real citizens don’t vote—the illegal aliens outvote them? Worse, in close elections illegal aliens can make the difference. Corruption? Look at the ballot box. In fact, they could have elected a President and Senator! “Since 80 percent of noncitizens vote Democratic, according to the study, noncitizen participation could have “been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes [in North Carolina in 2008], and Congressional elections” such as the 2008 race in Minnesota in which Al Franken was elected to the U.S. Senate, giving “Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote” to pass Obamacare. The Old Dominion/George Mason study was sharply attacked by progressive critics, but the mounting evidence makes clear this is a real problem.”

obama intent on disrupting Trump administration

Flopping Aces

barack obama, the narcissist without limits, declared the other day that he could have won a third term as President.

“You know, I’m confident in this vision because I’m confident that if I – if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it,” Obama said in an interview with David Axelrod, his former senior adviser.

Never mind that he has largely destroyed the democrat party.

While Obama’s tireless campaigning, broad demographic appeal and message of “hope” and “change” helped propel him to two terms in the White House, his skills on the stump haven’t translated down the ballot.

The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure.

The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and state legislative seats, governorships and the presidency.

obama confuses the American people agreeing with his “progressive vision of change” with his popularity for simply handing out goodies willy nilly, rewarding sloth and punishing individual achievement- the whole social justice warrior thing. Now normally upon leaving office Presidents do the respectful thing and leave town, allowing the new President to act.

Not this jerk.

Dear Republican Establishment…

Dear Republican Establishment:
I’m going to give you the Readers Digest version of why Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are leading in the Republican Primary.

In 2008, John McCain, a sitting Senator and a war hero, was running against the first African-American presidential candidate. Perhaps, the Republican party should have considered their own non-white candidate to appease a nation who thought skin color was more important than the proven character and experience of an “old white guy”.

Although I still believe McCain could have won, if not for the collapse of the Lehman Brothers and the fallout that followed, nonetheless, the Republicans failed to win this election.

In 2012, the Republicans nominated Mitt Romney. With millions of people protesting the Obama Healthcare Tax being shoved down our throats, the Republican Establishment picks the one guy who had already implemented this law in his own state. Would Romney fight the forced healthcare act that was the hot button issue in 2012, after all, he was the Daddy of it? Instead of fighting Obama and Obamacare, Romney became an apologist. He would attack Obama on his policy, get criticized in the papers and the next day he would be a blubbering idiot apologizing for offending Obama. All he did was offend the American people.

The Republican supporters refused to elect weak-kneed Romney, giving Obama the easy win. What the voters did do, however, was give the Republican the majority in the House and Senate. The People felt that in this position, the Republicans could stop Obama and his socialist agenda. Brilliant strategy that did not happen because the Republicans had the power, but they refuse to use it.

Ukrainian National Infiltrates Harrisburg High School

Family Security Matters

MICHAEL CUTLER

A series of recent disturbing news reports have focused on an alleged illegal alien, Artur Samarin, a citizen of the Ukraine who reportedly entered the United States with a non-immigrant visa.  He apparently decided that rather than return to his native country, as required under the terms of his lawful admission into the United States, he would create a fictitious identity in the name of Asher Potts and then enroll in a high school in Harrisburg, PA in the fall of 2012 where he subsequently studied for four years.

His assumed identity also included a false date of birth that made him appear to be years younger than he actually is.

Let me begin by saying that I personally know nothing about Artur Samarin.  The only information I have to go by is the information that has been provided in news accounts.  When I was a federal agent I found that sometimes news reports about investigations I was involved in were as likely to be accurate as they were likely to be inaccurate.

That said, the reports about Samarin’s case are important to consider because, as you will see, they involve a case that points out failures of the immigration system that have been the norm rather than the exception and these failures may have significant national security and public safety implications.

Below is a painstakingly detailed timeline surrounding the events and the people involved in the gun-walking program which leaves this author with absolutely no doubt that the purpose of the Operation was to justify a so-called “assault weapons ban.”

In the wake of the revelation that Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was in possession of a .50-caliber rifle (that can “take down a helicopter“), a reminder is in order about the TRUE nature of Operation Fast and Furious.

This is re-printed from Broadside News

I cannot begin to think of how the risk of letting guns fall into the hands of known criminals could possibly advance any legitimate law enforcement interest. – ATF agent John Dodson

“These guns went to ruthless criminals.” – Carlos Canino, ATF Acting Attaché to Mexico

“I’m not going to comment on the current investigation…As soon as the investigation is complete, appropriate action will be taken.” – President Obama

In the wake of a court order demanding that the Department of Justice release documents previously withheld regarding the Operation Fast and Furious scandal to Judicial Watch by Oct. 22, Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation is suspiciously-timed, to say the least.

While ABC news reported that Holder “has been discussing his plans with President Obama for months,” it is somewhat revealing that a potential replacement has not yet been announced, adding to speculation that Holder is high-tailing it out of the Obama Administration before damning information is revealed.

White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said,

The president will make the case that the work of the attorney general is so important that the United States Senate should act promptly and in bipartisan fashion to confirm his nominee…

It will not be difficult to push through a new nominee, as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took away the voice of the minority in the Senate in November when he flip-flopped from his 2005 position on the “nuclear option” (Reid previously said that invoking the nuclear option would “ruin our country.”)

Eric Holder, who has been with the Justice Department for 26 years, is the only attorney general in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress.

For those who have not paid much attention to Operation Fast and Furious, a tutorial is in order. It should be noted that without the vigilance of the New Media, there is little doubt that Americans would never have been informed of this scandal, like so many others under President Obama. In fact, without the diligent work of National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea, it is likely that the scandal would never have received Congressional attention.

The ill-conceived Operation Fast and Furious – conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) – resulted in the loss of about 2,000 guns that ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. One of those guns was used to kill border patrol agent Brian Terry, Immigration and Customs agent Jaime Zapata (from yet another gunwalking operation), and gravely wounding his partner Victor Avila. Former Mexican attorney general Victor Humberto Benítez Treviño estimated that 300 Mexicans were killed by these weapons in 2011, and certainly many more since, such as here, here and here.

It is still unknown who authorized Operation Fast and Furious.
