Washington Examinerby Paul Bedard

Republican Carly Fiorina took a step closer to running for president, revealing Thursday that she is near a decision while blasting Hillary Clinton’s policies as ‘crushing the middle class….’

Laying out her platform to reporters at a breakfast roundtable sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, she slammed domestic and foreign policies under President Obama and Clinton, decrying a ‘web of dependence’ that’s trapped the poor while making others poor by destroying small businesses with regulations….

Continue Reading

With Clinton’s whole platform based on identity politics, Fiorina with great precision will neutralize Clinton’s deck of gender, class warfare and race cards, one after the other.

After all, her accomplishments are non-existent while her scandals are many. Even worse, for Clinton is that the misdeeds of the Clintons continue to surface. Adding to that once neutralized, Clinton will have nothing to run on.

Below is a video of the breakfast conference in its entirety.

 

H/t Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post wrote an article entitled, Carly Fiorina, pink nail polish and sexism about his meet up with Fiorina after the breakfast conference. Capehart attempted to corner Fiorina on a remark made by Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner about “pink nail polish” during the breakfast and on the subject of identity politics. Fiorina did not bite (to Capehart’s surprise). The article is definitely worth checking out

Carly Fiorina on the Tax Code

Chicks on the Right

The big problem is our stupid tax code and all the regulations that get piled on and piled on and piled on and they NEVER get taken away. And Carly Fiorina, possible Republican presidential contender (only if she wants to make things interesting), has a few simple ideas for the tax code that someone who’s dealt extensively in private business would bring up….

UK: Poster warn Muslims not to vote in the general election because ‘only Allah can legislate’


Originally posted on The Muslim Issue:

Another thing that ‘Allah legislates’ is that Muslims should not live in a non-Muslim and non-Sharia country. Therefore, authorities should ask themselves WHY exactly are Muslims seeking residency in their country? What are their aims? And why do they continue to follow Islam while pretending that their immigration purposes are to escape Islamic law? How can they claim to be persecuted by the very law that they abide by and are dedicated to? According to the Quran a Muslim can only emigrate to a non-Muslim country if they 1) intend to spread Islam, 2) intend to commit jihad against the kafir for the sake of Allah. This is why we constantly state that all practicing Muslims residing in the West need to be deported.

As readers here know, yesterday Obama’s Task Force on New Americans unveiled its strategy to seed your communities with aliens and coerce you into “welcoming” them one and all.  I’m told it was boring and for Americans not trained to hear certain buzzwords it might have seemed pretty much ho-hum.

Thousands Opt Out of New York State Common Core Testing

Wall Street Journal

During a spring when test refusal has become a trend in pockets across the country, Tuesday marked a moment of suspense across New York state. Many expected at least tens of thousands of children to stay away from exams that critics see as too time-consuming and deeply flawed.

Backers of the tests say they reveal important clues to the strengths and weaknesses of students and schools, improve instruction and highlight achievement gaps so they can be addressed. Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch has called it a “terrible mistake” to miss out on that information….

Read full article

A trend? Terrible mistake? Not according to students and parents of students opting out of this week’s Common Core exams in New York State.

According to the Journal News, while bureaucrats attempt to downplay the opt outs, at least 25% percent opted out of the Common Core testing in the lower Hudson Valley. In some school districts, the opt out rate was 30% and in two school districts as much as 50%.

While the number of parents opting out in New York City are not as high as the upstate figures, parents in the City are opting out as well.

New York Daily News

Rachel Cohen, mother of a fifth-grader at Public School 261, said she thinks at least 66% of the 817 students in her Boerum Hill school refused to take the English Language Arts test — the first of the exams administered to third-through eighth-graders across New York State this week.

‘Essentially I see no diagnostic educational benefit to my child,’ she said. ‘I see no compelling evidence this is a fair and accurate way to assess children or teachers. All this emphasis on testing actually interferes with meaningful learning and assessment.’

Other parents whose kids opted-out echoed Cohen’s complaints that teachers are being forced to ‘teach to the test’ to preserve their jobs — and their kids were being short-changed as a result….

In 2014, more than 60,000 parents opted their children out of Common Core testing in New York State. The number of opt outs this year is estimated to be 100,000 plus.

Oath Keepers Stand with Oregon Miners against BLM

Tags

, , , , , , , ,


screenshot oath keepers oregon

 

TheBlaze

The developing standoff is centered around the Sugar Pine Mining Claim in the Galice Mining District in southwestern Oregon, where KDRV-TV reported Oath Keepers are gathering to defend mining claims from the BLM.

The Raw Story reported that the government had given the miners a deadline of April 25 to get their equipment off the land — and the miners don’t intend to comply.

According to the miners, fighting back against the BLM is expensive but the miners believe the law is firmly on their side

Read full article

On the Galice Mining District website, it states the following:

The Galice Mining District is neither a mining club, nor a prospecting association, but is instead, a local governing body for and by miners, its vested jurisdiction deriving its authority from the will of the United States Congress who recognized the long standing tradition of self government among miners and granted them with the right to create and enforce local rules and regulations pertaining to the location and development of their unique mineral properties.

Serving the miners of the Southern Oregon counties of Douglas, Josephine and Jackson, the Galice Mining District stands as a guard to protect and to preserve the rights, property and welfare of locatable mineral miners in this small, but mineral rich corner of the State of Oregon….

 

Even with the jackboot of tyranny eagerly waiting to stomp them out of existence, the miners contend that BLM lacks authority and that they (the miners) have the law on their side.

Galice Miners Will Do Battle With Bureau of Land Management

There have been many questions about rumors of a battle brewing between the Bureau of Land Management and several miners within the Galice Mining District. While we cannot yet divulge any fine details (and ultimately must keep legal tactics completely private), at this time, we can confirm the following:

  1. BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876 and then later transcribed into the Josephine County Clerk’s records once the county assumed recording duties. Under the 1955 Surface Resources Act, claims of this age have exclusive surface rights unless the Department of Interior utilized a mechanism outlined in that Act to severe those surface rights. Demands to BLM to produce evidence of their surface authority in accordance to the 1955 Act have thus far garnered only “because we say so” answers and numerous stonewalling tactics. The Stop Orders came after several months of back and forth maneuvering from both sides, and are clearly retaliatory in nature.
  2. BLM are in active violation, on multiple counts, of federal Freedom of Information Act statutes. (By contrast, certain mine records in the possession of the State of Oregon have been provided in a prompt and professional fashion when requested). Similar documents secured by another miner have appeared to have been “heavily parsed” of key file documents, raising suspicion that BLM is either actively suppressing the release of documents that could be very damning or has been actively destroying documents which they are obligated under Federal Law to maintain and provide on request. One of the BLM employees suspected of parsing the records in question has apparently left BLM in the last few days.
  3. What few documents have been produced by BLM to date (many of which are in no way very legible) have displayed a long history of non-compliance with federal and state laws, as well as their own regulations, as well as instances of suspected forgery, fraud, extortion of real estate and other issues that suggest a well organized conspiracy that divested thousands of miners and others of their property rights, which in turn has allowed the BLM and the USFS to exercise ruthless control over the entire Public Domain of the Far West, including rights of ingress and egress.
  4. A BLM mineral tech involved in this case remarked (4/8/15) to the attorney who is handling this case that he is aware that the BLM position is not “open and shut” and is proceeding on shaky ground. Ultimately, BLM’s attack on the mine is a rolling of dice in the hope that they can get their way opposed to anything grounded in reality.

Where is this all headed?

This case is headed in a direction that presents what is probably a once-in-a-generation prime opportunity to strike at the heart of the very surface management authority of the DOI and USDA and to restore the “as patent” rights of every mining claim owner in the United States by striking down the actual source of that intrusive authority….

Continue Reading

At this point, you are likely wondering, what it is that has the Bureau of Land Management so desperate to get their hands on this property?

Answer: GOLD which leads us to BLM’s side of the story as posted on the BLM-Oregon Facebook page.

Screenshot Bureau of Land Management Oregon Facebook post 04152015

According to the website, Lock and Loaded:

The area in question has produced in excess of 10 million ounces of gold since its conception, and geologists estimate that only 10% of the gold in the ground has been removed, which makes this area highly sought after by any standard…BLM has made several attempts to disband the operation of the sugar pine mine through multiple unsubstantiated stop orders and now a cease and desist order …

Continue

Oath Keepers disputing that this is a standoff against BLM a few days ago posted the following action alert on their website:

SUGAR PINE MINE SECURITY OPERATION

At the request of the Sugar Pine Mining Claim owners, Oath Keepers of Josephine County mission is to ensure the mining claim owners 5th Amendment Constitutional Right to Due Process is not violated by the Bureau of Land Management.

NOTICE
This is NOT a standoff with BLM. We are NOT promoting any confrontation with BLM. This is a security operation for the protection of Constitutional Rights. If you have a different agenda outside of the above peaceful mission statement, we don’t need your assistance. Please DO NOT make any type of threatening phone calls to the local BLM or USFS as it undermines our mission, professionalism and is unwarranted….

Please visit the Oath Keepers website or Facebook page for updates. They are requesting supplies and donations.

MSNBC on Rand Paul talking about issues that even Progressives won’t touch

Tags

, , , ,


screenshot rand paul ad

I ran across the video at the bottom of this post of Melissa Harris-Perry and comrades over at MSNBC performing their usual schtick. Given the title of the post, I had to force myself to watch but I am glad that I did.

The video begins with Melissa Harris-Perry showing clips of politicians from both parties speaking before Black crowds.

From Joe Biden to Hillary Clinton, each politician adapts his or her lingo speaking before the audience in what is both insulting and painful to watch.

Then Perry brings Senator Rand Paul into the discussion. Interesting enough, Paul is himself, which surprisingly Perry points out in a good way.

The discussion begins at 2:40 and it is quite interesting in that all admits that Paul is addressing concerns that even Progressives will not touch.

Of course, race baiter Michael Eric Dyson who has not yet gotten over the fact that in 2013 Paul actually spoke to students at Howard University (how dare he) remains true to form.

 

While I do not agree with all things Rand Paul, it remains certain that Paul is a threat to the Progressive establishment on both the left and the right.

Wolf Blitzer, Megyn Kelly Question DNC Chair Re When Life Begins, 3rd Trimester Abortions

DNC, Chair, Debbie Wack-o-man Wassmerman Schultz is still dancing around the question, “Is it okay to kill a 7 pound baby” in utero as she did yesterday during a discussion with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

TheBlaze

Blitzer’s question was the result of an ongoing spat between Schultz and GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who told the host last week that it sounds like Schultz is “OK with killing a 7-pound baby.” She responded in a statement, saying she supports “letting women and their doctors make this decision without government getting involved.”

Read full article

 

 

A few hours later, Schultz sputtering the same talking points under a grilling by Megyn Kelly, The Kelly File.

Kelly queried Schultz about Hillary, the “same failed” Progressive policies and the 2016 election before moving on to Rand Paul and the question of when life begins.

Schultz as expected attempted to deflect as she did earlier with Wolf Blitzer by attempting to throw the ball back in Rand Paul’s court, attacking the GOP and accusing Republicans of wanting to let women die.

 

 

Duck, Debbie, Duck. Deflect, Debbie, Deflect. Talking points, mere talking points that say nothing.

Amazing isn’t it Progressives will put such legislation into effect that permits the murder of innocent babies up to moments after birth and empower fellow Progressives who believe that a baby’s life is worth nothing under the age of 2 but will admit nothing on camera.

On a final note, I believe that Kelly could’ve been tougher on Wack-o-man but with the election season not even off the ground yet, I suspect that she decided to take it easy so that Schultz would return to The Kelly File at a later date.

V. Stiviano Ordered to Return Millions in Gifts to Donald Sterling’s Wife


screenshot v stiviano mistress of donald sterling former owner of l a clippers

 

While I normally never address such matters in my blog, I am making an exception today.

A judge has ordered former mistress, Vivian Stiviano of Ex-NBA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling to return more than $2.5 million in gifts, which included, a house, Ferrari, etc. to Sterling’s wife.

Stiviano in a betrayal of confidence played a major role last year in the humiliation and takedown of Donald Sterling colluding race baiters and anti-capitalists when she made public private conversations between herself and Sterling.

Shelly Sterling claimed that the gifts hubby, Donald, lavished upon Stiviano was her community property.

Stiviano’s attorney argued that his client received the gifts after Donald Sterling had separated from his wife and that Sterling did not buy the house. Argument rejected.

Justice? Karma? Someone having a liquidation sale?

REVENGE: Boehner Boots Rebels from Key Committee Posts

John Boehner

Three months after Florida Congressmen Richard Nugent and Daniel Webster joined two dozen other GOP reps in a failed attempt to oust John Boehner as Speaker of the House, Boehner now in his third term as Speaker has exacted his revenge on the two Florida reps by booting them from key positions in the House Rules Committee.

Washington Examiner, by Susan Ferrechio

Reps. Bradley Byrne, R-Ala., and Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., will fill the positions, meaning that Webster and Nugent have been permanently ousted. The two lawmakers served on the Rules Committee in the 113th Congress, but were excluded from the roster approved by lawmakers in the hours after they voted against Boehner….

Grumpy Opinions, By Sarge

I heard one of my favorite commentators make the statement the people may be a little leery of junior senators jumping into the political arena when they’ve barely gotten their trunks fitted for the fight they believe they’re ready for as they pursue the presidency. It’s almost like they believe, because they’ve attained the magical age necessary to run for the presidency (35 years old), they possess the necessary maturity, wisdom and track record of statesmanlike demeanor to be automatically qualified to direct the future of the greatest nation on earth, and influence the conduct of our friends and foes alike.

American politicians think we must accept only the “cream of the crop”; those people who’ve achieved residence in the “upper chamber” of the Congress (the Senate) as worthy and/or capable of running this nation. One need only look at the likes of Chuck “the Schmuck” Schumer and Harry “The Red” Reid on the left….
