Report: “Working Class Warrior” Elizabeth Warren Bought Foreclosed Homes To Flip And Turn A Quick Profit…

Elizabeth Warren for Fox News First

No way, not Liz Warren! ….

Via NRO:

Nearly two years after Veo Vessels died, her daughter, 70-year-old Mary Frances Hickman, decided to sell the home her mother had left to her. A sprawling brick house in Oklahoma City’s historic Highland Park neighborhood, it was built in 1924, just a year after Mary’s birth. Decades later, one of Vessels’ great-grandchildren fondly recalls the wood and tile floors, the fish pond, the butler’s quarters, and the multi-car garage where children played house.

Decades later, one of Vessels’ great-grandchildren fondly recalls the wood and tile floors, the fish pond, the butler’s quarters, and the multi-car garage where children played house.

“It was really, really nice,” says Hickman’s granddaughter, Andrea Martin. That’s part of the reason she’s so surprised her grandmother sold the home in 1993 for a mere $30,000. Despite a debilitating stroke, Martin says Hickman remained sharp, and she had always been business-savvy. As an Avon saleswoman, she had at times ranked among the top ten in the country. “So I don’t know why,” Martin says. “Maybe she just wanted out from underneath it, but to sell it for such a low number — I don’t know. Maybe she got bad advice, maybe she was just tired.”

The home’s new owner: Elizabeth Warren, today a Massachusetts senator who has built a political career on denouncing the sort of banking titans and financial sophisticates who make a buck off the little guy. Five months after purchasing Veo Vessels’ old home, Warren flipped the property, selling it for $115,000 more than she’d paid, according to Oklahoma County Property Assessor records.

Sick: Abortion Worker “Proud” Of Job Where “Tiny Arms and Legs” Float In “Baking Pans”…

babyhand

You’ve got to be disturbed to a whole other level to be proud of something like this.

Via Newsbusters:

If you want to learn how horrendous abortion is, go straight to the source: abortion clinic workers with a media platform.

In a May 24 story for Salon, Florida-based writer Amy Beeman wrote that “Working at an abortion clinic challenged my pro-choice views — and confirmed them.” In her piece, she wrote about her former job at a “women’s clinic” where she first saw “tiny arms and legs floating” in a pan. As time passed, she embraced her work’s mission of “removing unwanted growth” to learn the “bonds between all women” and discover that “grace can be found in the unlikeliest of places.”

During the first abortion Beeman witnessed, on a “young, petite blond,” Beeman’s trainer, an assistant, and the doctor “chatted” about “weekend plans, “The girl was quiet and kept her wide eyes fixed on the ceiling,” Beeman observed. “Before long the girl began crying out in pain as he did his work between her legs.”

Unabashed, Beeman continued her account of the “procedure” that “pulls the embryo from the uterus.”

“She was moving around a bit as if her body was rejecting the pain and discomfort and the doctor and assistant told her in serious tones that she needed to be still,” she said of the woman. With the vacuum turned on, “[t]he sucking noises during the aspiration sounded much like when they suck your spit at the dentist.”

“The girl lay still, sobbing softly,” she finished. Afterwards, the assistant, Beeman said, “made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass baking pan.”

Intrusive EPA Grants Itself Power To Regulate Ponds, Ditches, And Puddles…

Gina McCarthy

Who at the EPA was like, “Hey guys! Let’s grant ourselves power to regulate ponds…and also ditches and puddles!!” Who thinks of these things?

Via Daily Caller:

The EPA has released its Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule critics say would allow the agency to regulate waterways previously not under federal jurisdiction, including puddles, ditches and isolated wetlands.

Republicans, farmers and industrial groups have called the rule an EPA “power grab” because it extends the agency’s powers to new heights. Environmentalists and the Obama administration, however, argue the WOTUS rule is necessary for protecting water quality.

No matter how you spin it, the EPA’s WOTUS rule does expand the agency’s authority, and creates new avenues for environmental groups to sue projects they want to stop from moving forward.

“The administration’s decree to unilaterally expand federal authority is a raw and tyrannical power grab that will crush jobs,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement.

“Despite their assurances, it appears that EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have failed to keep their promises to Congress and the American people,” echoed Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe. “In fact, instead of fixing the overreach in the proposed rule, remarkably, EPA has made it even broader.”

Farmers and industry groups worry the new WOTUS rule will expand EPA reach over isolated wetlands, ponds and ditches that have a “significant nexus” to navigable waters — a vague standard employed by the EPA to regulate bodies of water.

Retired Gen. McChrystal: Yeah, We Knew Right Away Bergdahl “Walked Off Base Intentionally”…

Yet we all know how this turned out…

Via MRCTV:

Despite what Americans were told when U.S. hostage Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released May 31st of last year, Bergdahl was known to be a deserter at the time the deal was announced. Retired General Stanley McChrystal who commanded our troops in Afghanistan at the time Bergdahl went AWOL, revealed this during an interview with Fox News on Tuesday:

“I had been in command about a month or so when he left in 2009. My initial understanding based upon the reporting I got is that he had walked off intentionally. I do not know if he walked off to be picked up by the Taliban or just walked off. We made a massive effort to try to get him back for a couple reasons. One is he was one of our soldiers, its was the right thing to do. Second we didn’t want him to get taken by the Taliban and put in Pakistan. I think he was a confused young man which was my assumption at the time, and that will probably turn out to be the judgment of time. But it became this focus of a propaganda effort on the part of those who held him, and it became powerful against the United States and put us in a difficult position.”

At the time of the trade of Bergdahl for five senior Taliban terrorists, President Obama celebrated Bergdahl’s return at a gala ceremony in the White House Rose Garden. Soon afterwards, members of the former hostage’s platoon objected to the pomp and circumstance, saying that Bergdahl was a deserter:

Evan Buetow and Cody Full, two U.S. Army soldiers who served with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in Mest Malak, Afghanistan, said they know their disgraced former fellow mate deserted because they “were there” at the time.

“On June 30, 2009, in Mest Malak, Afghanistan, Bowe Bergdahl left his unit and deserted the U.S. Army,” the two wrote in a USA Today op-ed. “We know he deserted because we were there when he did it.”

Despite their eyewitness account, the Obama Administration sent National Security Adviser Susan Rice on to ABC’s “This Week” to refute the charges. Rice praised Bergdahl saying, “He served the United States with honor and distinction.”

Judge Rules State Department Release Batches Of Hillary Emails To The Public Every 30 Days Starting Next Month…

Hillary look

Grab your popcorn.

Via Politico:

A federal judge issued an order Wednesday requiring the State Department to make public batches of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails every 30 days starting next month.

U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras also set particular targets for the agency to meet each month as it wades through the roughly 30,000 emails totaling about 55,000 pages. (The percentages set for each disclosure can be viewed in the judge’s written order, posted here.)

The monthly disclosure essentially splits the difference between the State Department’s most recent proposal of releases every 60 days and lawyers for Vice News reporter Jason Leopold, who proposed releases every two weeks.

The State Department initially proposed releasing the vast majority of the emails in a single batch by next January, but Contreras rejected that suggestion, citing the public interest in the materials.

Clinton, now a Democratic candidate for president, has said she wants the emails released by State as quickly as possible.

Vice News sought the emails and other records from Clinton’s office last year under the Freedom of Information Act and filed suit earlier this year when the media outlet received no substantive response.

Clinton returned the 55,000 pages of emails to her former agency in December after an October request to four former secretaries asking for any official records in their possession. The former secretary, who used a private account for all her emails during her four years as America’s top diplomat, also has said she had erased a roughly equivalent number of emails her lawyers determined to be personal or private.

State Department’s First Ever “LGBTI Envoy” Seeking Global LGBTI Rights During 15 Country Tour….

What the …?

LGBTI in not a misprint, the new “I” stands for intersex.

Via CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) – Randy Berry, the State Department’s first envoy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons, said on Tuesday he is leaving on a 15-country, five-week trip to encourage foreign governments to include protection for homosexuals in their constitutions.

Speaking at the United States Institution of Peace in Washington, D.C., ahead of a panel of gay rights activists from around the world, Berry said gay rights and human rights are “issues we hold very, very dear.” Civil conflict around the globe that leads to constitutional change offers a “unique opportunity” to advance those rights, he added.

“Constitutional change has provided a unique opportunity for groups to mobilize for their members’ rights and for recognition,” Berry said.

He did not say which countries he will be visiting.

“Constitutions and constitutional courts are powerful tools to protect rights of members of minority groups,” Berry said, adding that some foreign governments are “addressing the rights of members of the oppressed and marginalized populations through the context of their constitutional drafting processes.”

White House: Iraqi Army Trounced By ISIS In Ramadi Because Of Their Lack Of Diversity…

Josh Earnest

Via Keith Koffler:

No, really. You’re not misreading the headline.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Tuesday exculpated Obama’s Iraq strategy and instead blamed Iraqi leaders’ failure to integrate their armed forces for the dramatic loss of Ramadi to ISIS.

Earnest said:

What we have indicated all along is that it will require a multi-sectarian force to succeed against ISIL.  And the reason for that is Iraq is a very diverse country and they’re going to need every element of their diversity to counter this specific threat.

You’ll recall from even the earliest days of the military campaign that the support of the United States was predicated on the commitment of the Iraqi political leadership and the Iraqi military leadership governing and fighting in a multi-sectarian fashion.  And that was true at the beginning in terms of the air support that the United States was prepared to offer; that’s also been true in some of the successful military operations that Iraqi security forces have carried out.

Now, there’s some truth to his, like any bit of spin. It’s not unreasonable to question the commitment of Iraq’s largely Shiite force to defending Sunni areas like Ramadi its ability to relate to the local population. But this isn’t enough to explain the catastrophic failure of Obama’s policy.

ISIS Holding Public Executions In Palmyra’s Ancient Roman Theater, 15 Men Shot Dead….

(AP) – Syrian activists say Islamic State group militants have shot dead a group of detainees in the Roman theater in ancient ruins of Palmyra.

They say Islamic State gunmen killed at least 15 men after accusing them of having fought with President Bashar Assad’s troops.

The incident — the first since the group captured the historic town in central Syria earlier this month — was reported by activists belonging to a Palmyra-based media collective and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

They said the militants gathered people in the theater to watch. The theater is part of the 2,000-year-old Roman-era ruins in Palmyra.

National Park Service Celebrates Diversity By Using Liberty Bell To Indoctrinate Students In LGBT…

Taxpayer funded propoganda.

Via Conservative Byte:

My neighbor was telling me about how his daughter took her kids to see the Liberty Bell and how they had redone the history signs there. It is now all about civil rights with the founding of our country barely touched upon. I’ve been trying to find a news story about this and am not seeing anything.

I did find the Nation Park Service website basically endorsing the LBGT movement. While their curriculum is nothing but a list of modern civil rights lessons.

You mean to tell me that the founding of our nation isn’t an exciting enough story that you have to ignore it and try to somehow connect civil rights? This sad rewriting of our national history is wrong and should not be ignored. We have let liberals take over teaching our children and our society.

Not to mention why is it ok for an official government service to endorse LGBT? We constantly hear about the separation of church and state, yet a hotly contested issue like this is ok for liberals to act like the know best. Another example of how liberals are prochoice until you disagree with their choice.

It’s Official: “WTF” Is Now In The Dictionary….

Example: WTF were Americans thinking when they elected President Pantywaist in 2008 and again in 2012?

Man-reading-Oxford-Dictio-006

(CNN) – It’s official: WTF is in the dictionary. It’s short for an informal phrase that starts with “what the …” and is “used especially to express or describe outraged surprise, recklessness, confusion, or bemusement.”

WTF joins emoji, NSFW, net neutrality, clickbait, click fraud, photobomb and other words reflecting modern life among the latest entries in Merriam-Webster’s unabridged dictionary. Some 1,700 words have been included, along with 3,200 new examples to add context.

The new entries speak to what’s current in the English language today, touching on technology, food, the worldwide food supply and the sharing economy.

In the world of food, we have crema: “a layer of tan creamy froth that forms on the top of freshly made espresso.”

And what’s not to love about chilaquiles, “a Mexican dish of fried corn tortilla pieces simmered with salsa or mole and typically topped with cheese and other accompaniments”?

Not all the dictionary’s additions are that delicious.

There’s colony collapse disorder, “a disorder of honeybees (Apis mellifera) that is characterized by sudden colony death due to the disappearance of all adult worker bees in a hive while immature bees, the queen bee and the honey remain and that is of unknown cause.”

Amnesty International accused Hamas militants Wednesday of abducting, torturing, and carrying out summary executions of Palestinians during last year’s conflict in the Gaza Strip.

The report, the last of four released by the human rights group detailing events during the fighting, said that at least 23 Palestinians were shot and killed by Hamas, which rules Gaza, while dozens more were arrested and tortured. Amnesty said those targeted were either political rivals of Hamas, including members of the Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, or people the militant group had accused of cooperating with Israel.

MSM Article Gushes Over Iran’s Acceptance Of Transgenders… Waits Until Last Sentence To Mention Homosexuality Is A Crime And Gays Are Executed…

Iran-Gays_Hanging

Just a minor detail.

Via AFP:

A bill that would provide better protection for transsexuals in Iran has been sent to researchers in parliament, the ISNA news agency quoted an official as saying on Tuesday.

Under a fatwa or religious decree by the Islamic republic’s founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran recognises transsexuality.

Sex change operations are common, with part of the fees paid by the authorities.

“To better protect transsexuals, a draft bill on all aspects, judicial and religious, has been prepared and sent to parliament’s research centre, which is examining it,” said Farid Habibollah Masoudi, deputy head of the social affairs assistance department.

“Since 2002, 1,800 people have applied to our service,” he said, including 330 in the Iranian year that ended in March.

In Iran, once a person’s transsexuality has been confirmed by psychiatrists, the person in question is referred to the justice and forensic science departments.

“To prevent any problems because of their appearance, they are given a letter confirming their transsexuality so the police do not take action against them,” the official added.

Despite being very traditional, Iranian society accepts transsexuality. However, homosexuality is outlawed, with the death sentence handed down to reoffenders.

Catholic University Removes Statue Of Famous Priest Praying Over Americans Indians After Libs Complain It Represents “Racism And White Supremacy”…

slustatue

Another win for the diversity enforcers.

Via College Fix:

Saint Louis University has removed a statue on its campus depicting a famous Jesuit missionary priest praying over American Indians after a cohort of students and faculty continued to complain the sculpture symbolized white supremacy, racism and colonialism.

Formerly placed outside the university’s Fusz Hall in the center of the private Catholic university, the statue will go to the university’s art museum, a building just north of the bustling urban campus.

The statue features famous Jesuit Missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet S.J. praying over two American Indians dressed in traditional clothing. Last Monday, just two days after graduation, it was removed from the location it has called home on campus for decades.

A university spokesperson told St. Louis Magazine the statue will be placed within the “historical context of a collection that’s on permanent display in our SLU Museum of Art.” The statue is set for the museum’s “Collection of the Western Jesuit Missions.”

“In more recent years, there have been some faculty and staff who have raised questions about whether the sculpture is culturally sensitive,” SLU spokesman Clayton Berry said.

Berry did not respond to The College Fix’s request for comment.

The De Smet statue has long drawn the ire of progressive students and scholars at the Jesuit university who argue the statue was a symbol of racism and white supremacy, among other oppressions.

In a recent op-ed published in SLU’s University News, senior Ryan McKinley stated the sculpture sent a clear, unwelcoming message to American Indians at Saint Louis University.

Ramadi Fell To Islamic State Even Though Jihadist Fighters Were “Vastly Outnumbered” By Iraqi Troops…

Ramadi

Vastly reassuring…

Via ABC:

The city of Ramadi is controlled by “hundreds” of ISIS fighters who were able to seize the city after Iraqi military commanders ordered the withdrawal of several thousand Iraqi troops from the city.

That’s according to a U.S. official who also confirmed that the withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Ramadi may have been prompted by the unexplained pullout of the elite Iraqi counterterrorism force based in the city.

The pullout of the Iraqi counterterrorism unit from Ramadi first appeared in the Kurdish news agency Rudaw.

The departure of that elite unit led other Iraqi military commanders in the city to order the departure of their troops even though they held a significant numerical superiority, the U.S. official said.

Over the weekend, Defense Secretary Ash Carter criticized the “will to fight” of Iraqi forces in Ramadi because they withdrew from the city even though “they vastly outnumbered the opposing force.”

The motivations for the elite unit’s departure remain unknown, the U.S. official said, but it was another reason provided by American officials as to why thousands of Iraqi security forces left the city.

The motivations for the elite unit’s departure remain unknown, the U.S. official said, but it was another reason provided by American officials as to why thousands of Iraqi security forces left the city.

Taken together, it appears the fall of Ramadi was due to a domino effect of circumstances.

Officials said last week that ISIS fighters launched more than 30 car bombs inside Ramadi in an effort to take over the city where fighting has been raging for more than a year and a half.

The attacks came at the same time as a sandstorm that affected ground operations. The storm also led the Iraqi commander on the ground to mistakenly believe that the sandstorm would prevent coalition airstrikes from supporting his troops, according to U.S. officials. American officials have said that the deteriorating weather conditions would not have affected the ability to conduct airstrikes.

Shameless Lib Rag WaPo Promotes The “Evolution” Of “Forsaking Monogamy”…

Via Newsbusters:

Washington Post reporter Caitlin Dewey’s beat is the Internet. But her big piece on the front page of Wednesday’s Style section is about something broader: “Forsaking monogamy: The evolution of relationships has made affairs less clandestine and less combustive. And of course there are Web sites to help match tryst-seekers.”

This being the Post, there is no space for critics of the “evolution” of online adultery Web sites or their users. Dewey promoted the “non-monogamous dating site Open Minded,” where her married female subject, Jessie, advertised, “I’m into building deep and loving relationships that add to the joy and aliveness of being human.” She talked her husband into “ethical non-monogamy.”

The Post also used the term “monogamish,” the cutesy term of radical gay sex columnist Dan Savage to describe the married-but-cheating lifestyle.

The online headline was “Are new dating apps killing monogamy? Or has it always been dead?” Dewey pushed (B). Or monogamy is an old “agricultural” tradition that’s fading away in the modern age. Adultery is the new mainstream, according to Open Minded founder Brandon Wade:

Rahm Emanuel: Deaths And Massive Failures Of Chicago Gun Control Calls For…Even Stricter Gun Control…

Liberal logic 101.

Via Breitbart:

Following a Memorial Day Weekend during which 12 people shot and killed and 43 more were wounded, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said a large part of the solution to the problem is more gun control.

That’s right — gun control is failing miserably and the solution is more gun control.

Breitbart News previously reported that a shooting on Friday resulted in the injuries of 4-year-old girl, her 17-year-old cousin, and a 15-year-old bystander in West Englewood.

On Sunday two boys, a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old, were shot in the 4400 block of South Cottage Grove. The 15-year-old was killed. A 20-year-old was shot and killed in Humboldt Park and another man was shot and killed in East Garfield Park.

On Monday there were homicides at 2:30 pm, 5:25 pm, and 7:50 pm, and the list goes on.

Were the shooters in these instance law-abiding citizens? Negative. Yet Emanuel’s response is more gun control which only affects law-abiding citizens. For those who ignore the law, more gun control simply means more victims.
