Defense, State Dept. Documents Reveal Obama Administration Knew that al Qaeda Terrorists Had Planned Benghazi Attack 10 Days in Advance

[JUDICIAL WATCH] (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts.

The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against both the DOD and State Department seeking communications between the two agencies and congressional leaders “on matters related to the activities of any agency or department of the U.S. government at the Special Mission Compound and/or classified annex in Benghazi.” –Read More…

Obama to unleash 'community organizers' on crime-filled cities

Obama taught “father of community organizing” Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”

The Department of Justice announced it will send millions of dollars to various community-activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and the police.

But critics believe such policies will only fuel further unrest by funding many of the so-called “community organizers” responsible for creating anti-police sentiment in American cities. –Read More…

Conservatives Blame GOP Leaders For Not Stopping ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’

[CNSNews.com] Republicans are not keeping the campaign promise they made to voters in 2014 to halt President Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America,” conservative and Tea Party leaders charged in an open letter to Congress on Monday.

On April 28, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) cited fast-track trade legislation and a bill requiring congressional review of the administration’s nuclear deal with Iran as the major accomplishments of the GOP-led 114th Congress so far.

Earlier that month, Obama praised what he called “some outbreaks of bipartisanship and common sense in Congress” over Iran and trade. The president also said he was holding bipartisan talks with the Republican leadership on transportation infrastructure issues as well. –Read More…

A Government That Breeds Contempt

[PoliticallyShort.com] “The rights of private persons amongst democratic nations are commonly of small importance…the consequence is, that they are often sacrificed without regret, and almost always violated without remorse. But it happens that, at the same period and amongst the same nations in which men conceive a natural contempt for the rights of private persons, the rights of society at large are naturally extended and consolidated”, wrote Alexis De Tocqueville in Democracy In America.

“In other words”, writes Tocqueville, “men become less attached to private rights just when it is most necessary to retain and defend what little remains of them.” What Tocqueville wrote about in 1840 is unfolding today in the form of a growing federal Leviathan in which our government not only sacrifices but targets the private rights of individuals to the general execution of its designs. The result is a consolidated government with a ubiquitous network of laws and rules actively suppressing individual initiative, self-interest, and success in the name of the greater good and on behalf of the larger community. –Read More…

Rush Limbaugh: Stephanopoulos 'Has Blown Himself Out of' Anchor Role

[Newsmax.com] The credibility of ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos is now “tainted” by revelations he’d donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation from 2012 through 2014, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh says.

“Stephanopoulos was to be, for lack of a better term, the anchor of [ABC’s] entire 2016 presidential campaign coverage,” Limbaugh noted on his radio show.

“Stephanopoulos has blown himself out of the deal,” Limbaugh asserts, adding, however, “I think ABC is gonna try to find any number of ways to get this guy… back involved in the 2016 campaign.” –Read More…

ISIS seizes government compound in Iraq's Ramadi

[FoxNews.com] BAGHDAD – Islamic State militants on Friday captured the main government compound in Ramadi, the capital of Iraq’s western Anbar province, after fierce clashes with security forces.

Ramadi’s Mayor Dalaf al-Kubaisi says the militants raised the black flag of ISIS over the area after troops were forced to withdraw from the compound, which houses most of the city’s government offices.

He said the IS militants, who also seized other parts of the city, are now attacking the Anbar Operation Command, the military headquarters for the province. –Read More…

The Great Stephanopoulos Mess

[Politico] Former Clintonland insider George Stephanopoulos, who has excelled at both politics and journalism, appears to have failed both professions with a single transgression.

As my POLITICO colleague Dylan Byers reported today, ABC News’ “This Week” and “Good Morning America” host Stephanopoulos has donated a total of $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, something he had not previously disclosed to viewers or his employers. In a statement to Byers, Stephanopoulos apologized for not disclosing the gifts. ABC News called the oversight an “honest mistake,” a sentiment Stephanopoulos amplified in an afternoon interview with Byers.

“We stand behind him,” the network also offered, which is corporate-speak for we will bind George in barbed wire and dump him into a surging storm sewer and drive off into the night the minute he becomes an intolerable distraction. –Read More…

Israeli Ambassador on Iran Deal: ‘We Cannot Roll the Dice’ on Survival of Jewish State

[DailySignal.com] Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, snapped his fingers to signify how quickly the Jewish state could go from being strong to vulnerable in the face of a nuclear Iran.

The same fragility can describe the current U.S.-Israel alliance at a time when the country’s governments disagree over the best way to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.

In a speech meant to both reassure — and pressure — his country’s best ally, Dermer today tried to make the case that though his country disagrees with the Obama administration on the merits of an emerging nuclear deal with Iran, Israel and America share an unbreakable bond. –Read More…

[FoxNews.com] Authorities in Philadelphia said Thursday that an eighth victim was recovered from the Amtrak train that crashed when it reached a sharp turn in the residential area of Port Richmond while reportedly traveling at speeds up to 106 miles per hour.

Derrick Sawyer, the city’s fire commissioner, said the body was discovered inside the front car of the train. The body was found in the wreckage by a cadaver dog.

Marco Rubio: The Commander-in-Chief We Need

[DailyCaller.com] As a Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Anbar Province, Iraq, I have seen the great challenges and great rewards of advancing American security interests around the world, and I remain immensely proud of what men and women in uniform have achieved and continue to achieve. Yet today I join many other Ohioans and Americans who are deeply troubled by the direction of our nation’s foreign policy, as more of the world slips into chaos and global threats to American security grow unchecked. I believe that all of us who wish for stability, safety and prosperity in the 21st century should support Marco Rubio for president in 2016.

I originally got to know Marco through hours of windshield time criss-crossing Ohio, discussing family, football and foreign policy. I was impressed by his strategic and decisive approach to the complicated foreign policy challenges we face as well as his sound judgment and clear vision on how to protect America and advance American values. As a United States Senator serving on the Committee on Foreign Relations and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Marco has been a strong and thoughtful leader on the foreign policy and national security challenges facing our nation. –Read More…

The Elephant in the Straw Poll

[RedState.com] I have had a number of people on twitter and elsewhere ask why the RedState Gathering could not be placed on the calendar at a time other than the Iowa Straw Poll. The short answer is: we tried.

For the last several years, we have held the RedState Gathering on the first full Thursday to Sunday in August. We do it for a number of reasons, but specifically because it is about the last chance in the summer for folks to hit the road for something before school starts.

This year, we were mindful that this could potentially conflict with the Iowa Straw Poll, so we looked at dates ranging from starting July 30th to starting August 13th. We reached out to the Republicans in Iowa, who were very insistent that the Straw Poll would coincide with the Iowa State Fair, as it always had.

In August of 2014, as we concluded the last RedState Gathering, we announced we would set this year’s Gathering for the week before the Iowa State Fair. –Read More…

Security officials, surveillance hawks get busy with fearmongering ahead of Patriot Act deadline

[PersonalLiberty.com] The June 1 deadline for Congress to renew portions of the Patriot Act that authorize the National Security Agency’s controversial surveillance programs is drawing near. For top government officials and many establishment Republicans, that means it’s time to double down on homeland security fearmongering.

Department of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson made a Sunday appearance on ABC’s “This Week” to warn Americans that the Internet has given ISIS terror cells hidden throughout the nation the ability to “strike at any moment.”

“We want the public to be vigilant and aware but we encourage people to go to public events [and] sporting events,” Johnson said. “But we’re very definitely in a new environment because of[ ISIS’s] effective use of social media [and] the Internet, which has the ability to reach into the homeland and possibly inspire others.” –Read More…
