WP: 100K Attending Bernie Sanders Events ‘Meaningless’

The Washington Post seems to want Hillary even over Bernie. Which maybe isn’t such a surprise. After all, who is really more radical and pro union than Hillary?

From the Washington Post:

100,000 people have attended Bernie Sanders events this month. That doesn’t mean much.

By Philip Bump | August 12, 2015

Some 28,000 people attended Bernie Sanders’s rally in Portland, Ore., on Sunday — both in the venue and watching outside. The Fix’s Chris Cillizza marveled at the turnout. "28,000 people! In August! Of an off year!" Cillizza wrote. "I mean, that is a lot. A LOT." … And then, the next day, Sanders pulled the same number in Los Angeles — meaning that in seven events since July 1, Sanders spoke before 100,000 people.



EPA’s McCarthy: Don’t Debate Climate Change Any Longer

But first, there is news from the Colorado mine ‘spill.’ Which for some odd reason isn’t getting the kind of coverage that the BP oil spill got in 2010. Even though it could be affecting the drinking water in six states.

From the Associated Press:

Top EPA official takes responsibility for mine spill

By Susan Montoya Bryan and Ellen Knickmeyer | August 11, 2015

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — … EPA workers accidentally unleashed an estimated 3 million gallons of orange-yellow waste, including high concentrations of arsenic, lead and other heavy metals, while inspecting the long-abandoned Gold King mine near Silverton, Colorado, on Aug. 5.

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said Tuesday in Washington, D.C., that she takes full responsibility for the spill, which she said "pains me to no end." She said the agency is working around the clock to assess the environmental impact…

So far, the Bureau of Reclamation has no plans to slow flows on the lower Colorado River, below Lake Powell, where the water is a vital resource for parts of California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah.

Obama, Clinton Donors Sold ‘Green’ Algae Fuel To DOD

Of course, this is barely news now that we’ve come to accept this kind of crony socialism. But not too long ago this kind of baksheesh was only practiced in third world countries and banana republics.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Obama, Clinton Foundation Donors Sold ‘Green’ Fuel to Military for $149 per Gallon

San Francisco’s Solazyme also received millions in stimulus funds from DOE

By Ali Meyer | August 12, 2015

The CEO and Board of Directors of Solazyme, a company the military paid $149 per gallon for “alternative” fuel, have donated more than $300,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. 

Recipients of significant donations included the Obama Victory Fund and the Democratic National Committee. Additionally, Solazyme donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Only 1 Conservative Org Got Non-Profit Status Over 3 Yrs

This seems like old news, but it isn’t. The Senate Finance committee has issued a report that says things were even worse than we thought.

From Americans for Tax Reform:

Lois Lerner’s IRS Granted Only ONE Conservative Group Non-Profit Status in Three Years

By Alexander Hendrie | August 11, 2015

Lois Lerner’s political beliefs led to tea party and conservative groups receiving disparate and unfair treatment when applying for non-profit status, according to a detailed report compiled by the Senate Finance Committee. Because of Lerner’s bias, only one conservative political advocacy organization was granted tax exempt status over a period of more than three years:

“Due to the circuitous process implemented by Lerner, only one conservative political advocacy organization was granted tax-exempt status between February 2009 and May 2012.

Hillary: I Will Be A ‘Model Of Behavior’ For All Americans

Talk about chutzpah — or tone deafness. But this is from the woman who managed Bill’s bimbo eruptions by smearing the women Bill sexually abused as ‘nuts and sluts.’

Hillary Clinton Pledges to Be a ‘Model of the Kind of Behavior’ All Americans Should Have

By Fred Lucas | August 11, 2015

“As president, I would do my very best to model the kind of behavior that I would hope all our citizens would have,” Clinton said.

ABC, NBC Ignored Hillary’s Above Top Secret Email News

After all, what is more important? That Hillary was giving up secrets that could get people killed or the ‘Republican War On Women’?

From NewsBusters:

ABC, NBC Punt on News Two Hillary E-Mails Have Been Found to Be ‘Top Secret’

By Curtis Houck | August 11, 2015

On Tuesday night, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News ignored a new development in the growing Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal with news just prior to the newscasts that two of Clinton’s e-mails were found to have been “top secret” by the intelligence community’s inspector general.

Meanwhile, the CBS Evening News was only able to scour together a 27-second news brief on the story… On CBS, anchor Scott Pelley explained how: “Late today, we learned that the intelligence community inspector general has found that two e-mails on Hillary Clinton’s private server should have been classified top secret.”

Not to pick nits, but they are now classified to compartmentalized.

AP: Hillary Relents, Gives Up Possession Of Email Server

The AP buried the revelations about the Hillary emails containing above top secret information in the 18th paragraph of their article. Where their low information readers will never see it.

From the Associated Press:

Clinton relents, gives up possession of private email server

By KEN DILANIAN | August 11, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton relented Tuesday to months of demands she relinquish the personal email server she used while secretary of state, directing the device be given to the Justice Department…

The real scandal her is that this server wasn’t seized months ago, once its existence was discovered. In the interim Hillary’s people have had enough time to sanitize it thoroughly.

It’s not clear if the device will yield any information – Clinton’s attorney said in March that no emails from the main personal address she used while secretary of state still "reside on the server or on back-up systems associated with the server." …

Remember the now ancient Rose Law Firm billing records scandal?

Hillary Emails Contained Info Classified Above Top Secret

Even if these emails were not marked with the classification levels, you would have to be an idiot not to realize that you were dealing with highly secret information. And if Hillary didn’t realize it, she had no business being in her job as Secretary Of State.

From the Washington Times:

Hillary Clinton emails contained ‘top secret’ material, watchdog confirms

By Stephen Dinan | August 11, 2015

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails contained "top secret" material, the government’s top spy watchdog said Tuesday, revealing that the messages were even more sensitive than previously disclosed.

In fact, Hillary’s emails contained material that was actually classified above ‘top secret’:

I. Charles McCullough III, the inspector general for the intelligence community, said he has concluded two of Mrs.

Kerry: Very Likely Russia, China Are Reading My Emails

And yet somehow the subject of Hillary’s use of a homebrew email server while she was at the State Department never even came up.

From an unfazed CBS News:

​John Kerry: It’s "very likely" Russia and China are reading my emails

August 11, 2015

NEW YORK — Secretary of State John Kerry says "it is very likely" that China and Russia are reading his emails. Kerry’s remark was in response to a question by "CBS Evening News" anchor Scott Pelley during a wide-ranging interview that aired Tuesday evening.

"It is very likely. It is not … outside the realm of possibility and we know they have attacked a number of American interests over the course of the last few days," said Kerry. "It’s very possible … and I certainly write things with that awareness."

What’s that mean?

Kerry: Accept Deal Or Dollar Won’t Be Reserve Currency

They are really pulling out all the stops. We have to allow Iran to get the bomb or the US dollar won’t be the reserve currency for the world any longer.

From an unquestioning Associated Press:

Kerry, top Democratic senator spar on Iran deal, sanctions


WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State John Kerry sparred Tuesday with the lone Democratic senator to publicly oppose last month’s historic Iran nuclear deal, saying there was no way the U.S. could prevent American allies from doing business with Tehran if Congress were to reject the agreement.

In other words, Obama’s Iran deal was intended to be presented to Congress as a fait accompli all along. And the promise of Congressional input and the ‘Corker’ compromise back in April were just window dressing for the rubes.

Trump Up 7% In Poll; College Kids Say He ‘Won Debate’

What a phenomenon. It really does seem to be a revolution — against the media and the rest of the ruling class.

First from Breitbart:

Teflon Don: Trump at 32 Percent in New Post-Debate Poll

By Matthew Boyle | August 10, 2015

Washington, DC — Republican frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump has jumped seven points—a remarkable hike in the polls—after the GOP debate in Cleveland, Ohio, last week and a subsequent spat with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. The Morning Consult poll of 746 self-identified Republicans and GOP-leaning independents has Trump with a  commanding lead over the entire rest of the field at 32 percent.

That means he leads the next three candidates—former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker or Sen.

NYT Says Megyn Kelly Won’t Be ‘Cowed’ (Sic!) By Trump

‘Cowed’? Isn’t that a sexist term? Will there be an apology from the New York Times?

From the New York Times:

Megyn Kelly Says She Won’t Be Cowed by Donald Trump

By JEREMY W. PETERS and DANIEL VICTOR | August 10, 2015

Megyn Kelly opened her Fox News program on Monday night by addressing the uproar over Donald J. Trump’s personal attacks on her, her first comments since he made a remark that many interpreted as a reference to her menstrual cycle.

Naturally the NYT had to work in the ‘blood libel’ into their lead.

“I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism, so I’ll continue doing my job without fear or favor,” she told viewers in brief comments on her show, “The Kelly File.”

The "without fear or favor" line is from the founder of the NYT.

‘Protests’ Continue In Ferguson, Emergency Is Declared

How come nobody is blaming Obama and Loretta Lynch and their DOJ? They have been running the Ferguson policed department since at least March.

From Reuters:

Protests return to Ferguson streets, state of emergency declared

By Carey Gillam and Scott Malone | August 11, 2015

FERGUSON, Mo. — Riot police clashed early on Tuesday with protesters in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri…  About 200 demonstrators, some waving flags, beating drums, and shouting anti-police slogans, marched along a street that was a flashpoint of riots that erupted last year… Police carrying shields rushed into a crowd of protesters around midnight, prompting many to scream and run away.

Why did the DOJ let the Ferguson police do a vicious thing like that?

Twenty-three people were arrested, some for throwing frozen water bottles and rocks at officers, according to the St.
