    And this week there was there was some comment from an unexpected source: Obamaphillic gun-grabber Piers Morgan weighed in. (After his contract fell through with CNN, he’s got time on his hands, apparently.)

    Might be easier to report when he's NOT golfing RT @WestWingReport President golfing at Andrews this afternoon

    — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) September 14, 2014
    @piersmorgan @WestWingReport Wow. Piers just said something I agree with. Scary day….

    — Cruz'n USA (@CruznUSA) September 14, 2014
    Scary indeed.

    And it’s not like there was just another beheading somewhere, right?

    It's all as though bill and hillary have never been caught lying before today. You can tell when they are lying, their lips move.

    “She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” says Maxwell.
    He says “seventh floor” was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisers.
    Here’s some more shorthand:
    “Anybody” = Hillary Clinton
    “Bad light” = prison
    In other words, “We are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put Hillary Clinton in prison.”

    A former State Department official has come forward with a shocking – and damning – allegation about the Benghazi scandal.
    Sharyl Attkisson at The Daily Signal broke the story today.
    From her report:
    As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
    According to former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, the after-hours session took place over a weekend in a basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington, D.C. This is the first time Maxwell has publicly come forward with the story.
    At the time, Maxwell was a leader in the State Department’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, which was charged with collecting emails and documents relevant to the Benghazi probe.
    “I was not invited to that after-hours endeavor, but I heard about it and decided to check it out on a Sunday afternoon,” Maxwell says.
    It is important to remember that Maxwell was one of the four State Department officials who was disciplined – and later cleared – for the devastating security lapses leading up to the attacks.
    Maxwell told Attkisson that the weekend document-scrubbing session was held in the basement of the State Department’s headquarters in Foggy Bottom.
    When he arrived, Maxwell saw boxes and stacks of documents.
    A State Department office director who was one of Clinton’s top advisers was there, which was a surprise to Maxwell. She worked for him, but he was not told she was attending the “weekend assignment.”

    Did you know that between 2008 and early 2014 there have been over 49 million internet searches on the keywords "Obama Antichrist" and "Obama Messiah", one of the most incredible internet statistics to accompany any american president.

  • It is hard to believe but right now there are Americans, with United States passports, overseas in Iraq and Syria, fighting side by side with ISIS and other terrorist group Jihadists.

    Earlier this week I introduced a bill that would revoke the passports for these Americans and begin the process of revoking their United States citizenship.

    click here to sign the petition If you agree that we cannot sit back and allow United States citizens to fight for ISIS, and then return to U.S. soil, possibly with the intention of creating a horrific terrorist strike here, then I hope you will add your name to my Join ISIS -- Lose Your Passport petition right now, so American-born ISIS fighters cannot return to America.

    Currently, Americans fighting with terrorists abroad are allowed free access to re-enter the United States, as some already have! They are likely put on a terror watch list and have to go through SOME screening, but that's it!

    Will you join me in putting an end to this freedom of return? Add your name to my Join ISIS -- Lose Your Passport petition right now.

    The bill I introduced states that if someone has joined with a radical Islamic terrorist Jihadist state, then they will lose their passport, begin the process of losing their United States citizenship, and will not be allowed to re-enter the United States.

    Industrial production drops 0.1% in August for first fall in seven months.
    Industrial production declined 0.1% in August to mark the first decline since January, and a series of revisions left output in July lower than previously estimated, according to data released Monday. Economists polled by MarketWatch expected a 0.3% gain. The 0.1% drop in output came as manufacturing output fell 0.4%, while mining output gained 0.5% and utilities output rose 1%. Motor vehicle and part output fell 7.6% after a 9% jump in July, and excluding this segment, factory output rose 0.1% in both July and August. Capacity utilization fell to 78.8% from 79.1%, as motor vehicle and part utilization fell back, to 81.4% from 88.2%.
    U.S. job growth brakes to eight-month low, labor force shrinks.
    U.S. employers hired the fewest number of workers in eight months in August and more Americans gave up the hunt for jobs, providing a cautious Federal Reserve with more reasons to wait longer before raising interest rates.

    Nonfarm payrolls increased 142,000 last month after expanding by 212,000 in July, the Labor Department said on Friday. The jobless rate fell one-tenth of a percentage point to 6.1 percent, but that was partly because people dropped out of the labor force.

    "Fed Chair Janet Yellen will be able to use the weakness to hold off hawks who would like to raise rates soon," said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago.

    Data for June and July were revised to show 28,000 fewer jobs created than previously reported. In addition, manufacturing saw no job growth and retail payrolls declined for the first time since February, although a workforce disruption at a grocery store chain in New England weighed on the count.
    The labor force participation rate, or the share of working-age Americans who are employed or at least looking for a job, fell to 62.8 percent in August from 62.9 percent in July. Before the United States fell into recession, it stood at 66.0 percent.

  • What's this country coming to? A short commercial of a 4-year-old girl reciting “The Pledge of Allegiance” to the United States in order to promote her grandfather’s real estate company has been banned by CBS Sports. Fox News reported about the segment: The national cable sports network rejected a 30-second television advertisement from Windermere Real Estate that shows company owner Dave Retter’s adorable granddaughter delivering the pledge with her hand over her heart. CBS Sports said the ad was “too political” to air during the network’s upcoming broadcast of the Wrangler Champions Challenge rodeo. Obviously, there is nothing political about reciting the pledge in a commercial. The only way CBS Sports might have a case is if the 4-year-old was telling the viewers to vote for a specific political party or legislation. When Retter was interviewed about the ridiculous decision, he said, “We just thought it’s around Sept. 11, Patriot Day, and rodeo is as patriotic a sport as it comes,” Retter told the Herald. “We’ve had so many positive responses, we felt it would be fun to run something positive.

    Why is Eric Holder not visiting the Tevlin family? Why is the President not going to mention Brendan Tevlin tonight? He was a young boy who was killed…for being an American.”

    In addition to calling out Holder and Obama for their failure to give any attention to these jihad killings that were done on American soil, Pettingill also said, “It was in fact an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people.”

    But, with ISIS on a bloody killing spree in the Middle East in their quest to establish a caliphate and their threats to take their attacks onto American soil, the only Brown the media wants to talk is Michael Brown. The media and Congress want to put more emphasis on the domestic abuse case surrounding Ray Rice than acts of jihad in America with men being killed simply for being an American. And Barack Obama wants to deny the severity of ISIS and, in fact, refuse to even recognize that they are dangerous Islamic terrorists who kill innocent people. Perhaps Obama should pay attention to the news more often. He would learn that not only do people kill innocents in the name of Islam, but it is happening already right here in the United States.

  • Brendan Tevlin was a 19-year old from New Jersey who had just finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond. Like many kids his age, he played sports and video games. He also liked to surf. Brendan also played the bagpipes and was a Eucharistic minister at his church. But none of those things led to his tragic death. What led to Brendan’s death is that he was an American.

    Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, was charged with the murder of 19-year old Brendan Tevlin on June 18th. Brown also confessed to killing two people, Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young, in Seattle on June 1. In addition, he was also charged with shooting another man, Leroy Henderson, in the Skyway area of Seattle in April. All of the men were killed with a 9 mm handgun.
    There is consistency in Brown’s statement to police in both King County in Seattle, and Essex County, N.J. He told authorities that he was doing his small part as vengeance for U.S. actions in the Middle East.

    Q13 FOX in Seattle reports that Brown described the killing of Tevlin to authorities in New Jersey as a ‘just kill’ which he defined as as a target that was an adult male, not a woman, child or elderly person. Brown stated, ““My mission is vengeance. For the lives, millions of lives are lost every day,” he reportedly said. “Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, all these places where innocent lives are being taken every single day … All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government. So a life for a life.”

    Todd Pettingill, radio host of The Todd Show in the Morning, on 95,5 in New York, discussed this jihad killings on his radio show. He said, “If there was ever a reason to riot in the streets in the name of humanity, it would be for this case. But, has that happened? No. And I’m not suggesting that it should. What did the friends of family of Brendan Tevlin do? They had a candlelight vigil.

    Benghazi panel to begin hearings
    on 2012 attack, US diplomats' safety
    Reuters
    THE SELECT BENGHAZI COMMITTEE holds its first open hearing this week, employing broad congressional powers to try to answer lingering questions ranging from what led to the fatal 2012 terror strikes on a US outpost in Libya to what is being done to better protect US diplomats worldwide.

  • The New York Times published a comprehensive article on September 7th entitled, “Foreign Powers Buy Influence at Think Tanks.” The article documents multi-million dollar donations to Washington-based think tanks that include the Brookings Institution, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the Atlantic Council, by foreign governments as a way of buying influence in Washington.

    For example, the government of Qatar made a $14.8 million donation to the Brookings Institution. It is a matter of public record that Qatar is a key funder and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and, indeed, that supporting Muslim Brotherhood parties has been a cornerstone of Qatar’s foreign policy.

    According to Middle East Monitor, The Emir of Qatar, Shaikh Tamim bin-Hamad, said that support for the Muslim Brotherhood is a “duty” for which no thanks are necessary. Qatar is home to the pro-Brotherhood channel Al Jazeera, to Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Qatar has directly funded a number of Muslim Brotherhood entities, including Hamas and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. Qatar has also provided refuge to many exiled Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

  • Amazing what a court order can produce.

    According to Judicial Watch, who broke the story.

    Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe.

    The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this back-up system.

    We obviously disagree that disclosing the emails as required would be onerous, and plan to raise this new development with Judge Sullivan.

    This is a jaw-dropping revelation. The Obama administration had been lying to the American people about Lois Lerner’s missing emails. There are no “missing” Lois Lerner emails – nor missing emails of any of the other top IRS or other government officials whose emails seem to be disappearing at increasingly alarming rate.

    All the focus on missing hard drives has been a diversion. The Obama administration has known all along where the email records could be – but dishonestly withheld this information. You can bet we are going to ask the court for immediate assistance in cutting through this massive obstruction of justice.

    Former Attorney General Edwin Meese III served under President Ronald Reagan from 1981 – 1985, and in a recent interview with Genevieve Wood from the Daily Signal, he said something amazing about the Obama administration.

    “This is the most lawless administration in the history of the country,” the former AG told Wood.

    Dem Sees Christian Genocide, But Does the White House?
    I don’t often hear of people talking about Christian genocide. While we get geared up to fight our not-a-war, I still have not seem many (any?) denunciations of the mistreatment and killing of Christians from this Administration.
    ISLAMIC STATE VIDEO SHOWS BEHEADING OF ANOTHER HOSTAGE
    What seems strange is the White House stays silent even in the face of acknowledgement of the issue by members of their own party.
    Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday that the persecution and slaughter of Christians at the hands of Islamic extremists in the Middle East is “genocide.”

    Citing the attack by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Levant (ISIL) on the city of Mosul in Iraq in June, Eshoo said Christians were driven from their homes because of their faith.

    “In June, at least a half a million people were forced from Mosul, including every Christian in the city,” Eshoo said at the In Defense of Christians (IDC) summit in Washington, D.C. “And mass, for the first time in thousands of years, could not be celebrated.”

    She said ISIS has killed men and boys and kidnapped and assaulted women and girls in Iraq and Syria.

    “The genocide of Christians – and that’s what it is – it is a genocide — it is genocide,” Eshoo said, as she was interrupted by applause from the audience of religious leaders and advocates from the Middle East and across the U.S. “The genocide that’s taking place in the Middle East today is a repeat of the history of my family.”

    Eshoo comes from an Assyrian father and an Armenian mother. So the genocide of the Armenians in Turkey is a galvanizing memory. Her activism makes the White House’s silence seem all the more strange because they also seem to be passively resisting a law that she sponsored:

    In August, a bill to establish a special envoy at the State Department to oversee the cause of religious liberty in the Middle East – sponsored by Eshoo and Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) — wa
