And I have a bridge in Brooklyn I want to sell you.

(CNSNews.com) – The portion of the federal debt that is subject to a legal limit set by Congress closed Friday, June 26, at $18,112,975,000,000, according to the latest Daily Treasury Statement, which was published at 4:00 p.m. on Monday.

That, according to the Treasury’s statements, makes 15 straight weeks that the debt subject to the limit has been frozen at $18,112,975,000,000.

$18,112,975,000,000 is about $25 million below the current legal debt limit of $18,113,000,080,959.35.

The Daily Treasury Statement for March 13 was the first to show the federal debt subject to the limit closing the day at $18,112,975,000,000. Every Daily Treasury Statement since then has reported the same thing: the debt closing the day at $18,112,975,000,000.

Obama To Announce US, Cuba To Open Embassies In Each Other’s Capitols, Restore Relations – Update: Obama Makes It Official, Full Diplomatic Relations Restored, Kerry To Personally Open Embassy In Cuba

obama-castro

In the time of Obama, enemies are treated as friends, friends he treats as enemies.

Via ABC:

President Barack Obama will announce Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have finalized an agreement to reopen embassies in each other’s capitals, a major step in ending hostilities between the Cold War foes, a senior administration official said.

The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies following the historic December announcement that they would move to restore ties after a half-century of animosity.

For Obama, ending the U.S. freeze with Cuba is central to his foreign policy legacy as he nears the end of his presidency. Obama has long touted the value of direct engagement with global foes and has argued that the U.S. embargo on the communist island just 90 miles south of Florida was ineffective.

The official insisted on anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter ahead of the president.

Update:

President Obama announced Wednesday the U.S. and Cuba have reached a deal to re-establish full diplomatic ties and open embassies that were shuttered five decades ago.

“This is a historic step in our efforts to normalize relations with the Cuban government and the Cuban people,” said Obama, who added that when the embassy was shuttered a half-century ago few would have thought it would have remained closed for so long.

Obama said Secretary of State John Kerry will be in Cuba on July 20 to open the U.S. embassy.

The move is the biggest step yet in Obama’s push to end hostilities with Havana that date back to the Cold War, which he announced in December with Cuban President Raúl Castro.

The Obama administration cleared the biggest obstacle to the shift after it formally dropped Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism in May.

The study, based on four recent polls, reveals the shocking level of support for the caliphate around the world.

Ryan Mauro of the Clarion Project, which carried out the research, warned that “ISIS is only a fraction of what it could potentially become”.

He said: “If we don’t act quickly, this is still going to grow – and what we’re looking at today is going to look like the good old days compared to the future.”

More than 8.5million people view ISIS positively, and around 42 million view them somewhat positively, according to the data.

Hate Crime Hoax: Utah Gay Man Admits He Carved “Die Fag” Into His Own Arm…

Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 10.20.25 AM

S-H-O-C-K-E-R!

Via Inquisitr:

A 21-year-old man from Utah, Richard “Rick” Jones, was the apparent victim of a series of vicious anti-gay hate crimes.

The openly gay business owner in Delta, Utah reported to local authorities that he was attacked and beaten at his family’s pizza business before the attackers held him down and carved the words “die f*g” into his arm. However, lawyers for the man have now come forward and released that the entire ordeal was faked and that it was actually Jones who had carved the words into his own arm. Now police are considering filing charges against Rick Jones for falsely filing police reports and reckless burning. So how did it all begin?

The Washington Times reports that a series of anti-gay “crimes” took place against Richard Jones beginning in April 2015. The first attack left the young businessman with a bruised face and the words “die f*g” carved into his arm. After the seemingly horrifying anti-gay attack, Jones troubles did not end. Five days after the apparent hate-fueled assault, Jones’ home was vandalized with the same harmful words. On June 10th, the “attacks” came to a head when a molotov cocktail was thrown into the family’s home and their pizza business was robbed of $1,000 and spray painted.

The apparent anti-gay hate crime left members of the rural Utah community frightened, but it seems the fears were unfounded as Richard Jones’ lawyer has admitted that the entire series of horrifying events were created at the hands of Jones, not an anti-gay hate group.

According to the Gephardt Daily, the Millard County Sheriff’s Office has released a statement regarding the anti-gay hate crimes in the community and deemed the case closed. According to the release, Richard Jones falsely reported the incidents and had faked the crimes at hand, including carving the words “die f*g” into his own arm.

“The investigation has come to an end today with the admission of Richard (Rick) L. Jones, Jr to having staged all of the incidents. We are working with the Millard County Attorneys Office to determine the next step. We urge community members to continue to be supportive of the Jones family.”

Islamic State Crucifies Five People In Syria For Not Fasting During Ramadan…

Hayat Boumeddiene 'appears in Islamic State film' - 06 Feb 2015

Justified by Islamic scripture.

Via Business Standard:

The Islamic State (IS) has crucified five people in northeastern Syria for not fasting during the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) director Rami Abderrahman told EFE news agency on Tuesday.

The victims were brutalised on Monday in al-Mayadin city, where their bodies were left near the IS police headquarters with placards around their necks reading “crucified all day and flogged 70 times for breaking the fast of Ramadan”, the activist told EFE by telephone.

Abderrahman also recalled a recent series of murders perpetrated by the IS in Deir al-Zour province, where for the first time the jihadi group decapitated women.

IS beheaded a husband and wife in Deir al-Zour for allegedly practising witchcraft, and another couple was killed on Sunday in a similar way on the same charge in al-Mayadin.

At least 3,027 people have been killed by IS militants in Syria since the group proclaimed a caliphate in territories under its control in Syria and Iraq one year ago, according to figures released by SOHR on Monday.

Poll: 70% Do Not Want Feds To Ban Confederate Flag

Confederate-memorial-

Americans really not into banning expression, but doubtless it will be twisted by the Left into evidence of ‘white supremacy’.

Via Breitbart:

According to a Tuesday Suffolk University/USA Today survey, 70 percent of respondents said they do not want the federal government imposing a ban on the sale or manufacture of the Confederate flag.

The issue took enter stage following the Charleston attack after a photo emerged of alleged gunman Dylann Roof posing with the Confederate flag. And the Suffolk University/USA Today survey was conducted June 25-29, right in the middle of the backlash against the Confederate flag.

According to Suffolk University, following Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R) calls for the Confederate flag to be removed from South Carolina’s Capitol grounds, 42 percent of Americans at large agreed — and 42 percent disagreed. When the questions was asked specifically to southerners, 49 percent of respondents said the flag “represents Southern history and heritage and is not racist.” Only “34 percent said it is racist and should be removed from official locations.”

Regarding federal action banning the sale or manufacture of the Confederate flag, 70 percent of respondents opposed it and 19 percent supported it.

The same survey found that only 38 percent of Americans believed the Charleston attack was a reflection of a larger problem of racism in America.

Horror! Report Says America’s Top Spies At The CIA “Do Not Prioritize Diversity”…

Via Reuters

The CIA has consistently failed to promote minorities into its leadership ranks and progress in building diversity at the top of the spy agency has largely stalled in the last decade, according to a CIA-commissioned report released on Tuesday.

“Agency leaders, managers and supervisors do not prioritize diversity in leadership,” the report said.

“This fact is evident at the highest levels of the CIA, wherein the most senior positions – with few notable exceptions – are consistently occupied by white male career officers,” it said.

Among the report’s most striking findings is that since 2008, the percentage of minorities hired by the CIA has declined to below what is needed to sustain current minority representation in the agency’s workforce.

It also found that a 1984-2004 increase in African-American officers at the agency’s top rung, known as the Senior Intelligence Service, has been reversed in the last 10 years.

CIA Director John Brennan, who ordered the study in December 2013, said he was committed to improving hiring, promotion and training of a diverse workforce. Brennan described that as vital to the spy agency’s mission of understanding and predicting events in an increasingly complex world.

An insufficiently diverse workforce “has lead to less than comprehensive appreciation of the world as we know it,” the CIA chief said. Other perspectives are needed, he said, “so we do not fall prey to group-think.”

Since its 1947 founding, the CIA has often been seen as a bastion of white males – often educated at Ivy League universities.

Shocker! CNN Poll Shows Almost Zero Support For Obama’s Gun Control Plans After Charleston…

ObamaLecture

Polls? We don’t need no stinkin’ polls.

Via Washington Examiner

Neither President Obama’s new calls for gun control or the public’s reaction to the horrific church killings in Charleston, S.C., have boosted support for White House action on pistols and rifles, according to a new CNN Poll.

In fact, support is below what CNN registered after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, which did not result in any new gun policies.

The new CNN/ORC poll found that 42 percent approve of the way Obama is handling gun policy compared to 53 percent who do not approve. In two early 2013 polls following the Sandy Hook killings, the president’s approval on gun policy reached 46 percent. The issue splits on racial lines, however, with 61 percent of whites disapproving of the president’s gun policies and 79 percent of blacks approving.

As a result, several congressional and pro-gun sources said that support for broad gun control and a new assault weapons ban are dead on Capitol Hill.

Obama Ally Lands Major Contract For Mooch’s “Healthy” School Lunch, Yogurt Will Replace Meat…

Nepotism, it’s what’s for lunch.

Via EAG

New York yogurt manufacturer Chobani just landed a massive U.S. Department of Agriculture contract for school lunches after years of lobbying lawmakers and President Obama on its products.

The upstate-New York Greek yogurt maker will be distributing its products to schools nationwide next year as a USDA-approved meat substitute for school lunches, capping off a pilot program in a dozen states made possible by extensive lobbying efforts.

Chobani Greek Yogurt first gained approval by the USDA for school lunches in 2013 as part of a pilot program after U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and other New York lawmakers pressured USDA officials to include it in a pilot program for four states. The USDA’s typically years-long approval process for new products was miraculously slashed to only about 8 months for Chobani.

That pilot program was expanded last year to a dozen states after reportedly positive feedback from students, Syracuse.com reports.

“After at least three calls from the persistent senator, (U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom) Vilsack helped arranged a Sept. 20, 2012 meeting in Schumer’s Capitol Hill office with Kevin Concannon, the key official for food, nutrition and consumer services,” the New York Daily News reports.

Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya was also named by President Obama as a “Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship,” which included a “closed-press” meeting with the president at the White House, according to the Daily Sabah.

The special treatment was undoubtedly the result of Ulukaya’s savvy political sense.

Hate Crime Hoax? Black Student Says He Left Confederate Flag On Memorial For Black Soldiers To Honor Them…

He was making a symbolic statement, or something.

Via Boston Com

A man claiming responsibility for hanging a Confederate flag from a memorial for black soldiers says he didn’t intend it as a racist gesture—and in fact was protesting the symbol and what he believes it represents.

Some who saw the flag hanging from the memorial—including a woman who took it down—interpreted its placement as a hateful gesture. The flag hung from a sword held by a sculpture of Col. Robert Gould Shaw, commanding officer of the Union Army’s Massachusetts 54th Regiment.

Harvard Medical and MIT student Stephen Allsop told Boston.com that he was part of a group of demonstrators that left the flag on the memorial after a Confederate flag-burning ceremony on Sunday evening.

Allsop said he and five others gathered at the memorial at 7 p.m., where they burned two Confederate flags as a way to show “solidarity with people who live in states like South Carolina” where the flag remains a “blatant issue.”

The gesture came amid a national debate about the Confederate flag following the murder of nine African-Americans in a South Carolina church earlier this month.

“The Confederate flag is inextricably tied to a legacy of terrorism, oppression and hatred,” said Allsop, who is African-American. “It cannot be separated from that.”

While one of the flags was burned “pretty completely,” the second was only “partially burned,” so Allsop said they hung it from the memorial.

“We thought it would be clear we were trying to show the destruction of that symbol,” Allsop said.

‘7 Black Churches Burnt’ Leaves Out Facts Like Some Not Arson, One Not Black

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 10.08.09 PM

Social media has already created the hashtag, #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches, driven by activists, already stating white supremacists are behind the fires.

But hey, facts, who cares about those, when you have a narrative to drive?

Via LA Times:

Arsonists are suspected of attacking at least two black churches across the South last week, but no arrests have been made or suspects identified, officials told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

None of the late-night attacks have been a declared a hate crime and it’s unclear whether any of the fires are linked. Social media reports that six black churches have been burned down in arson attacks are not accurate, according to local officials’ accounts of the fires.

Keep reading…

So to break it down, of the “6 Black Churches burned':
1. Knoxville, Tenn – fire set with materials on site, according to police more like a vandalism/kids thing, doesn’t look like ‘hate crime’
2. Macon, Ga – possible arson, but ‘nothing to suggest malicious intent’ (not sure how to reconcile those two statements by police)
3. Gibson County, Tenn – ‘white’ church, hit by lightning
4. Charlotte, N.C. – Arson, but nothing to suggest hate crime, damage to youth area
5. Warrenville, S.C. – don’t know what cause was, can’t rule out an accident
6. Tallahasee, Fla – fire likely touched off by electrical short

As we go to press on this, there is another fire reported at Mount Zion AME Church in South Carolina, a church previously burnt out by the Klan many years ago. Already it is being reported by many as ‘7th Black Church to burn’. The AP is reporting preliminary examination indicates it is not arson.

EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton Had ANOTHER Email Account: She Also Used Blackberry Internet Services Mail Email Account While At State

Blackberry – remember them? Blackberrys come connected to a service called “Blackberry Internet Service” or “BIS” for short which is hosted by Blackberry for your wireless company.

The Blackberry Internet Service provides customers with access to Blackberry Messenger as well as an email address (if you set it up) to send and receive small (or you can forward it to an actual account you own.

Anyway, combing through the 3,000 or so emails released by the State Dept today I came across this whopper.  Hillary Clinton using an “att.blackberry.net” email account to correspond.

Untitled

And for those of you thinking maybe she just goofed when setting up her Blackberry. Nope. Here she is cc’ing her own Blackberry e-mail account from her improper private mail server account.

Mrs Clinton has previously claimed to only have used one email account, except for a few weeks of transitioning into the start of her position in January of 2009.

Among the other issues of note in the release were Mrs. Clinton’s apparent difficulty understanding how to receive a fax and that she seemed to become aware that a cabinet meeting was being held by radio rather than through official notification.

America Has Chosen Its Favorite Fast Food Place…Chick-Fil-A

A ethic of service to customers, coupled with good food goes a long way. Chick-fil-A has come under attack from the Left because of the Christian values of its owners and it has faced boycott efforts. But America apparently doesn’t care what the Left thinks about Chick-fil-A.

Via The Blaze:

It’s the first year that Chick-fil-A was featured in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, and the Southern chicken chain took gold.

In a report released Tuesday, the ACSI asked more than 5,000 customers their opinions on fast-food chains and compiled a list of the best and the worst. Chick-fil-A finished in first place, with the highest score ever given to a fast-food chain, and Chipotle, also making its debut on the list, finishing close behind.

DOJ Faults #Ferguson PD For Protest Response…

The Mayor also failed to designate destruction zones.

Via STL Dispatch

Police trying to control the Ferguson protests and riots responded with an uncoordinated effort that sometimes violated free-speech rights, antagonized crowds with military-style tactics and shielded officers from accountability, the Justice Department says in a document obtained Monday by the Post-Dispatch.

“Vague and arbitrary” orders to keep protesters moving “violated citizens’ right to assembly and free speech, as determined by a U.S. federal court injunction,” according to a summary of a longer report scheduled for delivery this week to police brass in Ferguson, St. Louis County, St. Louis and Missouri Highway Patrol.

They already have the summary, still subject to revision, that was obtained by the newspaper.

It suggests that last year’s unrest was aggravated by long-standing community animosity toward Ferguson police, and by a failure of commanders to provide more details to the public after an officer killed Michael Brown.

“Had law enforcement released information on the officer-involved shooting in a timely manner and continued the information flow as it became available, community distrust and media skepticism would most likely have been lessened,” according to the document.

It also says that use of dogs for crowd control incited fear and anger, and the practice ought to be prohibited. And it complains that tear gas was sometimes used without warning and on people in areas from which there was no safe retreat.

Girl Scout Book Still Encourages Girls To Go To Media Matters Website, Despite Organizations Claim They Took It Out

Girl Scouts, building character, one lie at a time…

Via The Blaze:

It was back in 2011 that a concerned mother first approached TheBlaze to expose a paragraph inside of a book printed by the Girl Scouts of the USA that encouraged young girls to visit a well-known liberal website to clear up any “media misinformation” they encountered.

Three years later, she says that the controversial directive to use Media Matters for America — a liberal “information center” aimed at “correcting conservative misinformation” — to fact-check the news is still prominently displayed inside copies of the books being sold in some of the organization’s stores, despite intense media coverage over the issue and the Girl Scouts’ claim that they reprinted the book in 2012.

“I am not all that shocked to learn the Girl Scout organization has broken yet another promise made to its members. Sadly, example after example exists of the Girl Scout organization saying one thing and doing another,” Christy Volanski, a former Girl Scouts leader, told TheBlaze. “Considering that this organization claims to ‘build girls of character,’ it is deeply concerning that Girl Scouts USA and its local councils continue to be deceitful with families and supporters.”

Anarchist Group Plans To Burn American Flags In NYC Park Before July 4th

If you didn’t already know from the language, the black anarchist flag in the bottom right corner would give them away. Many of the Black Lives Matter events involve burning the American flag. But this makes very clear again their ultimate goal is not ‘equality’ or ‘justice’, or even ‘black lives’, they’re demanding America be torn down.

Via The Blaze:

A group calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department plans to burn American flags in a Brooklyn park on Wednesday, just days before the Fourth of July holiday.

“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.”

Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.

“There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”
