READY FOR HILLARY?: David Brock, a Clinton enemy from the ’90s, is now integral to Hillary’s run
Brock guides a network of pro-Clinton “super PACs,” mega-donors and opposition researchers that operates outside the confines of federal restrictions on campaign spending. At the center is Media Matters, his decade-old nonprofit group that meticulously monitors and counters conservative media, political attacks on liberal politicians and – more recently – unflattering stories about Clinton in the mainstream press.
“What David does that is so successful is show up the mainstream media for being lazy,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who leaned heavily on Brock for help when he became chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2005. “He forces them to confront the facts that get omitted.”
I don’t know if the author intended this article to be a comedy piece, but this section most definitely qualified. This news means we’re going to see paranoia taken to new highs….Where do people think the idea for attack watch came from?
MEANWHILE…IN CHICAGO: 10 killed, 54 wounded in gun violence over Fourth of July weekend in Chicago
“Among those killed was a 7-year-old boy shot in the chest during an attack aimed at his father, according to police. The boy died during a 9-hour stretch in which half of the 64 gunshot victims were wounded. Five of those people died after being shot and the other 27 were wounded between about 9:20 p.m. Saturday and 4:45 a.m. Sunday, according to police.”
Chicago SunTimes reports 9 dead, 53 injured, but more background on why the boy was shot:
“Police said Sunday the bullet that fatally wounded 7-year-old Amari Brown on the Fourth of July was meant for his father. Both Amari and the 26-year-old woman were shot in the chest at 11:55 p.m. in the 1100 block of North Harding, police said.
The boy’s father, Antonio Brown, is a ranking gang member with 45 previous arrests and was not cooperating with police as of Sunday afternoon as they tried to find his son’s killer, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Sunday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.”
Where is the #BlackLivesMatter protest and outrage? Or do black lives only matter when the shooter is white?
REASON TV’S NANNY OF THE MONTH: Indoor Smoking Ban Halts Scientific Research on Smoking (Nanny of the Month, June 2015)
They’re fining folks for cursing in Arlington, Virginia, and banning dead people from driving in New Jersey, but this month’s Nanny of the Month award is going to the Garden State for its anti-smoking zealotry, which has reached an absurd new low. You would think New Jersey would welcome a company that wanted to conduct research that might actually help people kick the habit. But such research is actually prohibited under the state’s Smoke-Free Air Act. New Jersey claims the law protects people’s health by banning smoking in most indoor public places—even labs that want to study the health effects of traditional cigarettes compared to vapor based e-cigarettes.
State Sen. Jennifer Beck (R-11th District) has introduced a bill that would exempt medical and scientific labs from the Smoke-Free Air Act. That seems like something everyone can rally around, right? Nope! It turns out that a major anti-smoking organization, the Global Advisors on Smokefree Policy (GASP), opposes even this limited (and socially beneficial) expansion of indoor smoking.
“They can do the study outside, just like everybody else has to,” says Karen Blumenthal, executive director of GASP.
So to sum up: smoking is so bad that we should ban as much of it as possible, including smoking that might help more people quit smoking. Got it?

#BENGHAZI UPDATE: Clinton Confidant Revealed as Source of Benghazi Misinformation
The question was who came up with the false narrative of the cause of the attack on the U.S. Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11, 2012. The answer, according to emails obtained by The New York Times, is Sidney Blumenthal, former journalist and longtime confidante of the Clintons.
And where did Blumenthal come up with this? This question should be asked since a man did jail time for Blumenthal’s narrative.
Was it from the Eric Holder’s DOJ?
Remember, Nakoula was a snitch working with the Feds and DOJ two years prior. Those entities would likely have known about the film back then because allegedly Nakoula wrote the script in prison.

#BENGHAZI: White House Knew 10 Days Before Attack
Immediately following the 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in 2012, the DOD had identified the culprits and indicated the attack had been planned “ten days or more” prior.
A Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.” The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council. The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).” The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies:”
The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks on the World Trade Center buildings.
The original report comes from a FOIA received by Judicial Watch.
The take-away here is that every single official who mentioned the YouTube video or related protests in Egypt as the cause of the Benghazi attack LIED.
Leon Panetta LIED in front of Congress.
Hillary Clinton LIED in front of Congress and to the families of the victims.
President Obama LIED on multiple occasions in the media to both the American people AND to the families of the victims.
Obama’s “JV Team” was predicted and he pulled out of Iraq anyway. That’s not a bug in his foreign policy, but a feature.
THE MUST READ OF THE DAY: Speak Free or Die
After Garland, they went too far. They showed their hand and their goal, a world where they decide who gets to say what. Imagine the same hysterical social justice drama queens who shriek about microaggressions getting to decide what you can and can’t say. Just understand, you fascist bastards, that if you want to be Nazis, you’ll need to do what the Nazis did and find some armed thugs – yeah, I’m using the word “thugs” whether you like it or not – to come stop us. Tell them to wear Kevlar.
Garland and the sorry aftermath of terrorist apologetics that followed were a warning to every freedom-loving American, as well as an illustration of what one freedom-loving American with training and a Glock can do against the forces of totalitarianism. These jihadi savages tried to silence and intimidate all free Americans. They failed.
Progressives mutter without conviction about how they can’t support violence, but … but … but, in fact, they do support violence. It’s not just their chilling with bomb-planting guys around the neighborhood and free passes for the looters in Ferguson and Baltimore. They support whatever it takes to silence us.
WHAT A RACIST: Mark Halperin Grills Ted Cruz On Just How Cuban He Really Is
EPIC SMACKDOWN: Ruben Navarrette: Halperin interview of Ted Cruz was painful
SAN DIEGO — Imagine the following pep talk that a young Ted Cruz might have gotten from his father, Rafael, about 35 years ago.“My son, I was tortured in a jail cell in Cuba, but I managed to come to the United States and build a life so that you could live your dreams. I grew up speaking Spanish, but I made sure you spoke English so you could go far. If you study hard, you can attend great universities. You can clerk for the chief justice of the Supreme Court, become a great trial lawyer and argue nine cases before the high court, get elected to the U.S. Senate, and someday run for president.
“Then, after all the family’s efforts and sacrifices, one day, you can go on an interview program and be asked by a smug and clueless white journalist if you’re authentically Cuban.”
Watching Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics interview Cruz recently, I wasn’t just uncomfortable. I was actually nauseated.As a journalist, I felt embarrassed for Halperin. As a Hispanic, I felt like I was watching a college fraternity have fun with racial stereotypes, like when staging a “border party” where people show up in serapes and fake mustaches. And as someone who doesn’t adhere to a party line to the point where I’ve been accused of being a “coconut” (white on the inside, brown on the outside), I was furious enough to — as Sarah Palin once said approvingly about Cruz — chew barbed wire and spit out rust.
OUCH! A WELL-DESERVED PUMMELING. THE INTERVIEW WAS INDEED DISGUSTING. HEY DEMS, WHERE IS THAT ‘BIG TENT’ OF YOURS?

Gee, maybe Romney was right about Russia.
“The mechanical failure occurred shortly before 1 p.m. at a transfer station some 35 miles southeast of Washington in Charles County, Maryland, that is controlled by utilities serving Washington and southern Maryland. Homeland security officials in Washington and Maryland said there was an explosion at the station, although the two utilities, Pepco and the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative, could not immediately confirm that there was a blast or fire. No one was injured, the utilities said.”

ROMNEY WAS RIGHT: U.S. Caves to Key Iranian Demands as Nuke Deal Comes Together
The subheadline is, “Limited options for Congress as Obama seeks to bypass lawmakers”.
“U.S. negotiators are said to have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal, a concession experts say would gut the verification the Obama administration has vowed would stand as the crux of a deal with Iran.”
Romney was right about Iran and about this Administration’s intentions.
“As long as I am president of the United States, Iran will not get a nuclear weapon.”
Very Clintonian of him.
Don’t miss what he says after the 1:41 mark, then go back and reread the excerpt at the top of this post.
ARE YOU READY FOR HILLARY?: Hillary Clinton Defies Subpoena, ‘Wiped Her Server Clean’
Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton failed to provide any new documents to the congressional panel investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks, instead notifying the committee that she has “wipe[d] her server clean,” the lead investigator announced.
“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), the chairman of the select committee investigating the attacks, announced Friday evening.
“We learned today, from her attorney, Secretary Clinton unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server,” he continued. “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department.”
“Not only was the Secretary the sole arbiter of what was a public record, she also summarily decided to delete all emails from her server ensuring no one could check behind her analysis in the public interest,” Gowdy said
Hot Air: Gowdy: Yep, Hillary Clinton wiped her server clean after State requested her emails
“There is no basis to support the proposed third-party review of the server that hosted the firstname.lastname@example.org account,” Kendall wrote. “To avoid prolonging a discussion that would be academic, I have confirmed with the secretary’s IT support that no emails…..for the time period January 21, 2009 through February 1, 2013 reside on the server or on any back-up systems associated with the server.”
Kendall added, “Thus, there are no email@example.com e-mails from Secretary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State on the server for any review, even if such review were appropriate or legally authorized.”
What is “appropriate and legally authorized” is to use an official email and follow public record laws.
Kendall is saying they turned everything state department related over, yet they decided what that was by deleting everything else. Shorter: Trust us, you have everything we gave you.
This has just as much to do with Benghazi as it does with the shady fundraising and acceptance of money from foreigners. By the way, The Hill: Clinton hit with racketeering lawsuit.
ALSO – ELIJAH CUMMINGS WANTS YOU TO NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN:
Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings said in a statement Friday that Kendall’s letter “confirms what we all knew — that Secretary Clinton already produced her official records to the State Department, that she did not keep her personal emails, and that the select committee has already obtained her emails relating to the attacks in Benghazi.”
Cummings added: “It is time for the Committee to stop this political charade and instead make these documents public and schedule Secretary Clinton’s public testimony now.”
I want to know if Cummings said that last line with a straight face.
