Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton slept in on Saturday following the Benghazi, Libya attacks, missing a staff meeting that was being set up about intelligence issues and the Presidential Daily Brief, according to a new batch of her emails released Thursday by conservative watchdogs Judicial Watch.

“These new Benghazi emails are disturbing and show why Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration had to be forced to disclose them,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a release to Newsmax.
“Hillary Clinton, despite knowing that terrorists were responsible for the attack, allowed her spokesman to go to the Arab world and blame an Internet film.”

Further, he maintained that the emails show Clinton “trafficked in fantastical conspiracy theories” suggesting that American conservatives and Israel were to blame for the Benghazi attack and jihadist violence.

“And the crazed email from Sidney Blumenthal shows that she was taking direction on her Benghazi spin based upon attack-style presidential campaign politics,” said Fitton.

“Finally, the ‘I just got up’ email shows that, smack dab in the middle of the Benghazi crisis, Hillary Clinton fell behind and may have not been fully briefed as she began an intense round of phone calls to foreign leaders.”

Breaking…Democrats Introduce Measure to Condemn Criticism of Islam

Independent Sentinel

House Resolution 569 was introduced on December 17th by the Democrats and it’s dangerous. It’s self-described purpose is “condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.”

There is no proof of a war against Muslims in this country. Racial hate and anti-semitism are far worse problems, but that won’t stop leftists from using it as an excuse to put in laws that damage or destroy the First Amendment.

Democrats have been trying to ban hate speech and now plan to exploit Muslims to achieve their goals.

The measure panders for votes from the Muslim community, a community of people who are conservative and don’t even belong with these leftists. It’s all a prelude to the death of the First Amendment.

Resolutions of this nature have a tendency to be reintroduced later as binding legislation to be forwarded to the Senate. The introduction of this resolution is not yet newsworthy, but it will be if it emerges intact from committee to be voted on by the whole House says Edward Cline at the Rule of Reason.

People behind the resolution include:  Keith Ellison, a Democrat and Muslim from Minnesota; Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat and chairman of the Democratic National Committee; Charles Rangel, New York Democrat; and Alan Grayson, a Democrat from Florida.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently said that she would prosecute hate speech against Muslims though it’s obviously in violation of the First Amendment.

Speaker Ryan to be primaried next year

American Thinker

Fall out continues for Speaker Paul Ryan for his sheparding the nearly $2 trillion spending bill through Congress earlier this month. It appears that Tea Party groups in WIsconsin, as well as several high profile national pundits, are looking to primary Ryan for the 2016 campaign.

Washington Times:

The hunt is on to find a suitable conservative candidate who can beat Mr. Ryan, who received 94 percent of the vote in the 2014 primary in his district, which sits against the Illinois border in the southeastern part of the state.

“There are people who are seriously looking for that,” said James Murphy, founder of Green Bay Tea Party. “There is a sympathetic ear to having someone beat him.”

The Ryan campaign team in Wisconsin has shrugged off the threats, treating them as mere talk in the absence of a viable candidate to mount a challenge in the district.

However, there is precedent for a tea party challenger to topple a member of the House Republican leadership. Eric Cantor, while serving as majority leader, lost his seat in a Richmond, Virginia, suburb in a 2014 primary upset to tea-party-backed Dave Brat.

However, Mr. Ryan’s predecessor as speaker, John A. Boehner, easily defeated a tea-party-backed primary challenger the same year in Ohio. At the time, Mr. Boehner faced widespread opposition from conservatives and a revolt in the House Republican conference, which ultimately prompted him to resign in October.

Mr. Ryan, the 2012 Republican nominee for vice president, did not seek the speakership but was drafted by conservative and establishment members who saw him as a unifying figure who could mend the divide in the conference.

The Felon in the White House


American Thinker

The gained his position through the commission of a felony. The evidence emphatically does not involve postings from “somebody’s blog,” or urban legends about Obama being a Muslim and/or having been born in Kenya. The evidence comes from Obama’s own YouTube video, Web site, and campaign E-mails.

Lotteries for Political Campaigns are Illegal

It is a basic principle of auditing that issuance of a finding or nonconformance requires (1) objective evidence that (2) is noncompliant with the requirements of a standard. The auditor’s personal opinion, rumors, and “common knowledge” do not count. As stated by Orson Welles as General Bayan in The Black Rose, “What I can’t touch doesn’t exist,” and that is a good way to describe what is and is not objective evidence. A criminal conviction requires similarly (1) objective evidence that (2) violates a specific law. Let’s start with the law as described by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC).

The FCC has defined a lottery as “any game, contest or promotion that combines the elements of prize, chance and consideration.” Federal law generally prohibits the broadcast of any advertisement or information concerning a lottery.

Texas adds, “Texas law allows only certain charitable and nonprofit organizations to conduct raffles to support their charitable causes. An unlawful raffle may constitute illegal gambling, which may carry criminal penalties.” The Center for Competitive Politics is just as explicit:

It is legally impossible to conduct a nationwide raffle, whether the funds are being used for political purposes or not. This, of course, is of great importance, because running an interstate gambling operation that does not comply with the laws in each state in which it is being conducted subjects you to both criminal and civil penalties under the Federal RICO statute.

Now we have a clear standard against which we can compare Mr. Obama’s fundraising practices. The next time he talks about people he thinks shouldn’t be able to own guns, for example, our side should remind him (publicly) that, had prosecutors and law enforcement agencies not given him an obvious pass in 2008, he would be a prohibited person along with other enemies of the Second Amendment such as convicted felon Rod Blagojevich.

Cromnibus Brings in At Least 170,000 Migrants From Muslim Countries in 12 Months


Independent Sentinel

Why are politicians arguing over 10,000 Syrians coming into the country when the new cromnibus will allow at least 170,000 migrants in from Muslim countries? The numbers will undoubtedly be higher. They have been over the last several years.

The senate voted to approve the cromnibus bill and Senator Sessions said this is the reason GOP voters are in open rebellion. Sessions is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Refugees.

Senator Sessions took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to warn of the repercussions from the cromnibus bill when it comes to immigration, illegal and otherwise.

“There is a reason that GOP voters are in open rebellion,” Sessions said. “They have come to believe that their party’s elites are not only uninterested in defending their interests but – as with this legislation, and fast-tracking the President’s international trade pact – openly hostile to them. This legislation represents a further disenfranchisement of the American voter.”

The bill, Sessions said, allows the president to bring as many refugees as he wants and he can bring them in from anywhere he wants, giving them access to unlimited entitlements at taxpayer expense. At least 170,000 green cards will be issued to refugees, asylees, migrants from Muslim countries over the next 12 months.

It quadruples foreign workers available to employers under the H-2B visa program. H-2B workers are supposed to fill positions workers won’t do seasonally but they are taking American’s jobs.

The bill won’t defund Sanctuary Cities. Illegal aliens will continue to get tax credits. They don’t have a social security number, they have children somewhere around the world, they don’t pay taxes but they get a child tax credit for children not even in the country. Language to stop this was not kept in the bill. Those credits were made permanent.

Americans are being terminated, they are made to train the new foreign workers who then take their place. Amendments to stop this were rejected, but industries asking for more foreign workers had their requests met.

Executive amnesty continues as does funding to countries who won’t take their illegal aliens back.

Astounding Incompetence: Illegals with Firearms, Missing Visa Jumpers



Independent Sentinel

Thousands of foreigners have had their visas revoked over terror concerns and the State Department doesn’t know where they are. That is according to Michelle Thoren Bond, assistant secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs. House Oversight Committee Chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah rebuked those testifying but the Obama administration holds no one accountable.

It shouldn’t affect their bonuses.

Bond initially said the U.S. has revoked more than 122,000 visas since 2001, including 9,500 because of the threat of terrorism.

But Chaffetz quickly pried at that stat, pressing the witness about the present location of those individuals.

“I don’t know,” she said.

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, told committee members that such checks aren’t being done in an abundant manner. What does that mean? “Abundant manner? It’s a way of saying they don’t do it all most likely.

Unlimited Muslim immigration: A Congress of fools or traitors?


Family Security Matters



Senate bill 153, the Immigration Innovation Act (or I-Squared), led by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), would allow for virtually unlimited Muslim immigration into the United States. Several of Rubio’s most prominent financial backers are among the bill’s boosters. Rubio’s campaign theme, “A New American Century,” employs a euphemism commonly used to describe demographic transformation of the United States brought about by immigration.

A recent Pew Research report found that “nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law.”

Yet in the last five years, the U.S. has issued 83,000 green cards to Pakistan, 83,000 green cards to Iraq and 11,000 green cards to Afghanistan.

According to Fox News’ Chad Pergram, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House Republicans are gearing up to attach a proposal to the omnibus spending bill that gives Barack Obama a blank check, empowering him to bring in an unlimited number of refugees.
