‘I Just Sent This Letter to NBC News’: RNC Dishes Out Debate Punishment Amid CNBC Fallout |

‘I Just Sent This Letter to NBC News’: RNC Dishes Out Debate Punishment Amid CNBC Fallout |

"The Republican National Committee said Friday it is “suspending” its partnership with NBC News for an upcoming GOP debate in Houston, citing displeasure with the way CNBC moderators handled the most recent debate."

What did the EPA need with $1.4M worth of guns?

What did the EPA need with $1.4M worth of guns? « Hot Air
It stems from an audit of the department’s spending conducted by Open the Books, a nonprofit outfit pushing for more transparency in the federal government. This comes on the heels of previous revelations, such as the discovery that the EPA had run up a $92M tab for designer furniture recently. But this one is even more curious. Rather than blowing moderately big dollars on designer roll away desks, the EPA has apparently been dumping more than a million dollars into equipping a small army. (Daily Signal)
The headline of an op-ed by economist Stephen Moore in Investor’s Business Daily sums it up well: “Why Does the EPA Need Guns, Ammo, and Armor to Protect the Environment?”
And not just a few weapons. Open the Books found that the agency has spent millions of dollars over the last decade on guns, ammo, body armor, camouflage equipment, unmanned aircraft, amphibious assault ships, radar and night-vision gear, and other military-style weaponry and surveillance activities.
“We were shocked ourselves to find these kinds of pervasive expenditures at an agency that is supposed to be involved in clean air and clean water,” said Open the Books founder Adam Andrzejewski. “Some of these weapons are for full-scale military operations.”
So the obvious question here is… why? Their report cites one instance where the EPA went into lands owned by a group of miners in Alaska who were potentially hostile, so they would want to be protected from any sudden attack. But even that really doesn’t make all that much sense. A journey like that would obviously require a lot pf planning and preparation, and the feds have any number of other agencies who are fully trained and equipped to handle potentially explosive situations. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to bring a team from Homeland Security or the BATF to go with them? We have to ask how much military training a group of environmental scientists have really received which might prepare them for walking into a firefight..."

RNC Suspends Partnership with NBC for February Debate

RNC Suspends Partnership with NBC for February Debate:

Republican U.S. presidential candidates Rubio, Trump and Carson applaud before the start of the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential candidates debate held by CNBC in Boulder: Republican U.S. presidential candidates (L-R) U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, businessman Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson applaud before the start of the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential candidates debate held by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado, October 28, 2015.

The Republican National Committee announced on Friday that it is suspending its partnership with NBC News for a GOP presidential debate in February.
In a letter to NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday night’s debate hosted by CNBC, which was universally criticized for its handling of the contest, influenced his decision to cut ties with the network for the Feb. 26 debate at the University of Houston.
“The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith,” Priebus wrote. “We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm of your organization, and we need to ensure there is not a repeat performance.”

U.S. SCHOOLS: Are Now Appeasing Muslims By Canceling This Popular Holiday ⋆ Doug Giles ⋆ #ClashDaily:

 "Evidentially, Muslims just want to destroy everything that isn’t them, according to what’s going on in Milford, Connecticut.   As previously reported, the Milford public schools officially cancelled all Halloween events to avoid “excluding people due to religion, cultural beliefs etc.” Apparently, the school leaders decided it was just easier to exclude everybody. In fact, Milford isn’t even the first Connecticut County to try this. Newington schools banned Halloween costumes by actually using “exclude everybody” as a justification."

How To Fix the GOP Debates

How To Fix the GOP Debates | Power Line:
"...The presumptuousness of liberalism runs so deep that I’m guessing John Harwood hasn’t a clue that he was a biased jerk last night. 
As Marco Rubio suggested correctly—or as Glenn Reynolds puts it—most journalists are just Democrats with bylines.
Given the asymmetry of the media, the GOP leadership is beyond stupid in agreeing to let the TV networks host the debates. 
It is political negligence of the highest order. 
Since the purpose of the debates is to help the GOP pick its nominee, the GOP ought to control the debates fully. 
Herewith two ideas that can be implemented right away.
First, cancel the rest of the debates...
Second, given that so many voters these days are independents, why not have debates that mix up the candidates from both parties..."

Who'd of thunk?!!-----Growth in State Medicaid Spending Crowding Out Spending on Other Major State Programs

Growth in State Medicaid Spending Crowding Out Spending on Other Major State Programs | Mercatus:
"According to recent research, expanding state Medicaid spending is “crowding out” spending on other major state programs, most notably education and transportation infrastructure. 
This growth in state Medicaid spending, however, does not seem to be increasing state debt burdens.
As the chart below shows, in 2000, state spending on Medicaid amounted to 19.1 percent of the total of state budgets.
Education made up 22.3 percent, while transportation constituted 8.9 percent of state spending. Fourteen years later, in 2014, total state spending on Medicaid had increased to 25.8 percent of state budgets, while education fell to 19.5 percent and transportation spending declined to 7.7 percent of state budgets. "




Muslim Religious Leader says “Muslims have the Right to Kill anyone who does Not Respect Islam” - Eagle Rising

Muslim Religious Leader says “Muslims have the Right to Kill anyone who does Not Respect Islam” - Eagle Rising:

"A video recently surfaced of an interview with a so-called “moderate” Muslim cleric on a Norwegian TV show. The video has gone viral because it shows an Islamic leader in the West being honest about what Islam teaches when it comes to non-Muslims.

In response to questions about Muslim violence against non-Muslims, Mullah Krekar tells Norwegian TV that not only is it okay for Muslims to kill non-Muslims, it’s actually required by Qu’ranic law. Further the imam says that “Muslims have the right to Kill anyone who does not respect Islam.”

This is gonna work great....right------Denmark may make refugees take sex-ed courses with focus on consent

Denmark may make refugees take sex-ed courses with focus on consent | New York Post:
"Refugees seeking asylum in Denmark may soon be required to take mandatory courses in sex education.
The initiative gained steam last weekend, after three Eritrean men were arrested for allegedly raping a 25-year-old Eritrean woman in Hjørring, Metroexpress reported.
Five other asylum seekers were charged with rape there last year, the site noted.
Copenhagen’s parliament expected to support of the mandatory courses in what constitutes sexual consent, and all parties across the board are in favor of the effort to help integrate foreigners into Danish society.
Similar five-hour classes were introduced in Norway in 2011, with a focus on teaching asylum seekers and refugees that, “a kiss is not a yes to sex.”
The Norwegian program was launched following a series of sexual crimes committed by refugees near one of the asylum centers, The Local reported.
Linda Hagen – who runs 34 asylum centers in Norway – explained how men from conservative countries frequently misinterpret the more open Scandinavian attitude towards sex.
“It’s difficult if you come from a country where women never go out,” she said. “When you see a girl with a short skirt dancing at a party late in the evening, what kind of message will it give you?”
“It’s important to tell them that this kind of behavior or clothing doesn’t mean that it’s allowed for you to go the whole way. If a girl says ‘no’, it’s a ‘no.’”
Peter Skaarup, Danish People’s Party Spokesman, believes the same principals should be taught in Denmark.
“If they’ve done something in Norway that works, we should just copy it,” he told Metroexpress."

MSM sorta missed this mistake...right-----BECAUSE SOMETIMES THE NARRATIVE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP: Black Man Arrested For Setting Fires To Six Bla…

BECAUSE SOMETIMES THE NARRATIVE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP: Black Man Arrested For Setting Fires To Six Black Churches In St. Louis:
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks white supremacist groups, suggested in an article last week that the arsons were carried out by white supremacists.

The group quoted a journalist who covers African-American issues who said that the fires were “both alarming and not surprising.”

“This is alarming because domestic terrorism is alive and well,” David A. Love told the SPLC. “It is such a problem that the U.S. Department of Justice recently predicted increases in violent acts by white extremists who are responding to a new reality in which people of color will become a majority in America.”

The SPLC also quoted Love blaming “a vicious cycle created by rightwing politicians, the NRA and hate groups who stir up anger, fear and resentment over changing demographics and want their country back.”
Related: Michelle Malkin has had a running category on fake “hate crimes” for years; in 2010 she explored “How the Left fakes the hate: A primer.”

We cannot allow Hillary Clinton, 'midwife to chaos' and a public liar, to be our next president | Fox News

We cannot allow Hillary Clinton, 'midwife to chaos' and a public liar, to be our next president | Fox News:

"To pursue her goal of a “democratic” government there, Clinton, along with Obama and a dozen or so members of Congress from both houses and both political parties, decided she should break the law by permitting U.S. arms dealers to violate the U.N. arms embargo and arm Libyan rebels whom she hoped would one day run the new government. So she exercised her authority as secretary of state to authorize the shipment of American-made arms to Qatar, a country beholden to the Muslim Brotherhood and friendly to the Libyan rebels and a country the U.S. had no business arming -- unless the purpose of doing so was for the arms to be transferred to the rebels.

Once this plot was hatched, Clinton and her fellow conspirators realized that some of these rebel groups were manned by al-Qaida operatives; and selling or providing arms to them is a felony -- hence the reason for months' worth of missing and destroyed Clinton emails."

EXCLUSIVE - Donald Trump Rights Ship on Immigration: Demands Disney Rehire Workers Replaced by Cheap Foreign Labor, Calls Rubio 'Silicon Valley's Puppet' - Breitbart:

US-VOTE-REPUBLICANS-DEBATELast night during the CNBC primary debate, Donald Trump, who to this point in the campaign had been the Republican candidate most closely aligned with the conservative grassroots on immigration policy, seemed to have altered his message in several significant ways.

Breitbart News documented some of these changes here.
Trump, who leads many national 2016 polls, granted Breitbart News an interview on the subject. Full questions and responses below:
BNN: The media has been filled with stories about companies flying in low-wage H-1B workers to replace American workers in tech jobs. Adding insult to injury, these American workers have been forced to train their replacements. If you were President, would you put a stop to this practice?
DT: Day one. This is why I got into this race. Because the everyday working person in this country is getting screwed. Lobbyists write the rules to benefit the rich and powerful. They buy off Senators like 
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
 to help them get rich at the expense of working Americans by using H-1B visas–so called “high tech” visas–to replace American workers in all sorts of solid middle class jobs. If I am President, I will not issue any H-1B visas to companies that replace American workers and my Department of Justice will pursue action against them.

BNN: Hundreds of workers at Disney were forced to train their foreign replacements. But while Florida Senator Nelson rallied to their cause, Senator Rubio did not. While Nelson has called for an investigation, Rubio has not. While Nelson has called to reduce H-1Bs, Rubio has demanded more. Senator Rubio has been the top promoter in Congress for expanding the H-1B program even though millions American tech workers are out of jobs. Rubio’s new bill triples H-1Bs and has zero protections for American workers. Advocates for tech workers said Rubio’s bill would “destroy” the U.S. tech workforce. Rubio’s bill is even endorsed by the CEO of Disney. What do you think of Rubio’s bill?

Joe Biden meets with Bernie Sanders - POLITICO:


Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders met with Vice President Joe Biden at his Naval Observatory residence for an hour Thursday, discussing issues related to campaign finance reform and education, according to a statement released through the Vermont senator's campaign.
The meeting comes more than a week after Biden announced that he would not seek the Democratic presidential nomination.

“Under the leadership of President Obama and Vice President Biden, this country has come a long way economically since President Bush left office and we were losing 800,000 jobs every month and the world economy was on the brink of financial collapse,” Sanders said in a statement released through his campaign. “Nevertheless ... we still have a long way to go to create the kind of economy that works for all Americans and not just the top 1 percent.

Glenn Beck Puts Ted Cruz’s ‘Eerily Accurate’ Memory to the Test After CNBC Debate | Video |

 "According to Fox News’ Frank Luntz, Cruz’s heated exchange garnered a 98 percent favorable rating among conservative and moderate voters — the highest percentage the analysts says he has recorded in 15 years of focus groups.

Beck said he’d asked his team to do two things to confirm Cruz’s “eerily accurate” memory: make sure Cruz was correct in his portrayal, and confirm whether or not he listed everything off in the right order.

“You want to talk about an audiographic memory, not taking notes on what they said and getting it right, but then did you get it in the right order? "

Jeb Bush's Campaign Blueprint - US News

Jeb Bush's Campaign Blueprint - US News:

A 112-page internal document provided to U.S. News includes more dirt on Marco Rubio, Iowa vote goals and a January advertising plan.

Jeb Bush looks on during in the CNBC Republican Presidential Debate, October 28, 2015 at the Coors Event Center at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado.

Even before Jeb Bush's uninspiring debate performance Wednesday night, his sputtering presidential campaign was working to prevent defections.
Bush's top lieutenants convened with donors in sopping wet Houston on Monday to calm their fears and retrench for the unforgiving haul ahead.
After the confab, Bush's team distributed a 45-page PowerPoint presentation to select reporters, summarizing an optimistic view of the race, touting the Republican candidate's cash and organization, and assuring supporters that early polls are rarely indicative of ultimate success.
But in that leak to select media, the campaign purposely left out more than half of what was furnished behind closed doors.
The full presentation, obtained exclusively by U.S. News, spans 112 pages and includes a trove of new details, including Bush's internal polling, his vote goal in Iowa and his advertising plan for January.
Additionally, while the slides released to the media outlined Bush's overarching argument againstFlorida Sen. Marco Rubio – that he's the GOP's Barack Obama – the complete offering contains more biting, detailed slights, pointedly questioning the character and ethics of Bush's home state rival.
The document provides a rare behind-the-curtain look at the gritty details of a campaign at a crucial inflection point. Here's a breakdown of the most illuminating pieces of intelligence contained in Bush's 2016 blueprint

What could possibly go wrong? It already did!!-----Residents sound off on medical marijuana dispensaries at Detroit Planning Commission hearing

Residents sound off on medical marijuana dispensaries at Detroit Planning Commission hearing - Crain's Detroit Business:
More than 300 showed up at a Detroit Planning Commission public hearing at the Thursday night at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center to hear about and voice their opinion on a city zoning ordinance that would put tight restrictions on where medical marijuana dispensaries could locate in the city.
While a few residents who are cancer patients and dispensary owners said they were against the ordinance, the majority of the crowd supported it.
“We support the ordinance and support (Detroit) Councilman James Tate,” said Thomas Wilson Jr., a city resident.
“The way it is going now, we will have more marijuana dispensaries in this city than churches.”
The ordinance was proposed earlier this year by Tate, who believes the lack of rules and regulations governing dispensaries has led to rampant growth of the centers and has added to a feeling of lawlessness.
“Some said we should hold off on this (ordinance) until the state makes changes, but I tried (waiting) last year, and the state did nothing,” Tate said in an earlier interview.
“The issue is you don’t see a proliferation (of dispensaries) anywhere like you do in Detroit.”
Many of the city’s suburbs have passed ordinances to bar medical marijuana dispensaries.
The city has roughly 160 dispensaries, many of them along major thoroughfares.
They frequently open within close proximity to each other.
Tate said his District 1 has 35.
A lack of regulations has caused “the gremlin effect.
Sprinkle water on them and they pop up everywhere,” he said..."

Did Federal Agency Commit Climate Fraud? Sure Looks Like It

Did Federal Agency Commit Climate Fraud? Sure Looks Like It -
"Junk Science:
Worried about climate fraud, Congress is investigating a federal agency for allegedly manipulating weather data to show recent global warming when there is none.
So why is the agency refusing to cooperate?
First, a little background:
Satellite temperature readings clearly show no warming trend for the last 18 years, 8 months and counting.
This fact is significant for two reasons:
One, satellite temperature readings are the most comprehensive and thus the most accurate.
And, two, the pause in warming since 1998 undercuts the entire global warming agenda of the environmental movement and its allies on the left who see in climate change an opportunity to impose greater government control over our lives.
Yes, we're skeptical of "climate change," at least as defined by the green extremists.
Climate is always changing. 
No one denies that. 
What's at issue is how it's changing and why. 
The science is still unclear.
Earlier this year, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists took part in a study that found — no surprise — that the "pause" in global warming from 1998 to 2013 didn't exist.
Their change didn't come from actual temperature readings. 
It came from extensive data manipulation and tinkering. 
Instead of a pause, they found a surge.
What's strange is that major temperature revisions by NOAA and others in recent years have always been up — never down — a clear sign of possible bias.
Earlier this year, for instance, it was revealed that nearly half of all supposed global warming in recent NASA data came from the agency's own highly suspicious statistical changes, not from actual temperature readings.
Enter Rep. Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican and chairman of the House Science Committee. Curious, he subpoenaed NOAA for research documents related to the study.
NOAA refused to hand them over. Smith's committee wants to know why.
"The American people have every right to be suspicious when NOAA alters data to get the politically correct results they want and then refuses to reveal how those decisions were made," Smith said this week.
We agree.
For too long, global warming proponents, both inside and outside government, have tried to halt debate over their extreme conclusions and data manipulation, all in the name of "science." 
Looks political to us.
Taxpayers pay for this research, which is being used to justify massive new federal spending and regulation.
They deserve to know what NOAA and other federal agencies are doing — and whether they're being honest or serving an unspoken extreme political agenda."

Angela Merkel Germany -- Migrant Crisis, Environmentalism, & Paternalism

Angela Merkel Germany -- Migrant Crisis, Environmentalism, & Paternalism | National Review Online:
Germany’s political stability and economic sway have until recently earned Chancellor Angela Merkel unprecedented global influence and power.
Postwar Germany has become the financial powerhouse of Europe and a model nation.
Give credit to German hard work and competency for the country’s continuing economic miracle. Less appreciated is how Germany also brilliantly exploited the lucrative in-house trade framework of the European Union market — along with nearly seven decades of subsidized defense from an American-led NATO.
The result is that Germany alone now determines the fiscal future of the nearly insolvent southern European Union nations on the Mediterranean.
Germany was also the self-appointed broker between Vladimir Putin and the apprehensive EU. Merkel supposedly has watered down Putin’s military ambitions by seducing Russia with lucrative German trade.
In addition, Germany positioned itself as the moral voice of Europe.
In penance for an aggressive past that had nearly wrecked Europe on three occasions, it became the loudest critic of supposed U.S. imperialism.
By the 21st century, German media, politicians, and intellectuals had superseded their French counterparts as America’s most vocal European critics — from the Iraq war to eavesdropping by American intelligence agencies.
In terms of tough leadership, Germany’s iron lady, Merkel, had trumped even the reputation of Britain’s late former prime minister, Margaret Thatcher.
In world opinion, Merkel was deemed just as decisive as Thatcher, but with a far stronger global hand to play and with a more popular embrace of social justice.
In sum, the new post–Cold War Germany was evolving into the leader of the West, especially during the American recessional from world affairs orchestrated by President Barack Obama. 
No more. 
In just the last six months Germany in general, and Merkel in particular, have imploded.
Merkel’s disastrous decision to open the borders of Germany — and with them Europe’s as well — is proving both selfish and suicidal.
Hordes of migrants are swarming into Europe. Merkel’s naïveté cannot be dressed up in her professed humanitarianism, given that many of the migrants are young, single men from the Middle East who pour into Europe not as political refuges but as opportunists eager for European social largesse.
Merkel’s disastrous decision to open the borders of Germany — and with them Europe’s as well — is proving both selfish and suicidal. 
Aside from the costs, and the religious and social tensions that hundreds of thousands of young unemployed Muslim males will create in Europe, there are lots of other hypocrisies in the German migrant situation.
Germany was far tougher in its fiscal negotiations with kindred European nation Greece than it has been with Middle Eastern migrants.
Merkel logically lectured Greece that its reckless borrowing could not be allowed to undermine the European Union.
But isn’t that selfishness similar to what Germany is now doing?
With Merkel urging other European nations to take in waves of migrants and thereby inviting a flood of refugees across the borders of its neighbors, Germany’s far poorer neighbors will bear much of the cost..."

The eye-opening graphics show the true scale of the exodus, with movements plotted daily and each dot representing 25 to 50 people.
Perhaps even more shocking is that the numbers seen streaming into Germany and other Western European countries represent only a small fraction of those displaced.

NOAA Attempts To Hide The Pause In Global Warming: The Most Disgraceful Cover-Up Since Climategate

NOAA Attempts To Hide The Pause In Global Warming: The Most Disgraceful Cover-Up Since Climategate:
The US government’s main climate research agency has refused a request by House Republicans to release key documents concerning the controversial issue of whether or not there has been a “pause” in global warming.
Despite being a public, taxpayer-funded institution, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) insists that it is under no obligation to provide the research papers, as demanded in a subpoena by 
What vital information of national secrecy importance could NOAA possibly have to hide?
That question is entirely rhetorical, by the way. 
The answer is obvious – well known to every one within the climate change research community. 
And the whole business stinks. 
When these documents are released, as eventually they surely must be, what will become evident is that this represents the most disgraceful official cover-up by the politicized science establishment since the release of the Climategate emails.
At the root of the issue is the inconvenient truth that there has been no “global warming” since January 1997.
This is clearly shown by the most reliable global temperature dataset – the RSS satellite records – and was even grudgingly acknowledged in the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment report. 
While still insisting that there has been a slight warming – an increase, since 1998, of around 0.05 degrees C per decade – the IPCC had in all honesty to admit that this is smaller than the 0.1 degrees C error range for thermometer readings, and consequently statistically insignificant.
But if there has been no “global warming” for nearly 19 years how can alarmist proselytisers like President Obama and John Kerry possibly hope to convince an increasingly skeptical public that this apparently non-existent problem yet remains the most pressing concern of our age?”
Step forward the Obama administration’s helpful friends at NOAA. 
It’s not supposed to be a politicized institution: its job is to do science, not propaganda. 
But the memo must have been missed by NOAA scientists Thomas Karl and Thomas Peterson who, in May this year, published a “study” so favourable to the alarmist cause it might just as well have been scripted by Al Gore and Greenpeace, with a royal foreword by the Prince of Wales, and a blessing from Pope Francis..."

Remember our heroes-----Memphis Belle Was Not The First Bomber To Complete 25 Missions

Memphis Belle Was Not The First Bomber To Complete 25 Missions:
"Memphis Belle is a well-known World War Two bomber, which was made famous by the Hollywood movie of the same name back in 1990.
The Memphis Belle was supposed to be the first B-17 bomber to fly 25 bombing missions and return back to base safely each time.
Now an academic from Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Daytona, Florida has revealed that it was the B-24 named Hot Stuff that was the first bomber to make 25 missions and return home, not the Memphis Belle.
William Waldock is a professor at ERAU and he says that Hot Stuff flew her final and 25th mission in February of 1943, which was over three months earlier than the Memphis Belle completed her 25 missions. 
In fact, it is believed that Memphis Belle was the third to complete 25 successful missions.
Hot Stuff later crashed in Iceland under the command of Captain Robert Shannon in May of the same year.
Hot Stuff was being flown home to the US since Captain Shannon had completed his tour of service.
One the return journey Lieutenant General Frank Andrews took over the flying and when the plane hit severe weather conditions.
...The second bomber to have completed 25 missions is said to have been the Hell’s Angels, but it wasn’t widely promoted since its name wasn’t aesthetically pleasing to the War Department.
It therefore fell to Memphis Belle as the face of bomber aircraft during the war.
Waldock says that because Hot Stuff crashed and never made it home it never became as well-known as Memphis Belle. 
Waldock also discovered that Lieutenant General Andrews was a VIP getting a return flight back to the US along with his close aides and staff, who took the place of the bomber’s original crew.
The crew of Hot Stuff didn’t land at their scheduled stop on their way to Iceland, which if they had of stopped they would have found out about the incoming bad weather conditions, and may have waited until it passed and was safe to fly.
The plane flew into zero visibility and it has been reported that the bomber’s radio was broken. The plane crashed into the side of a mountain near the airfield in Iceland. Only one out of the 15 man crew survived.
After the war the famous Andrews Air Force Base was named in his honor."
