Not only not doing anything to improve the situation, but making it harder for anyone else to help.

Via Free Beacon:

President Obama threatened to veto the Veterans Affairs Accountability Act in a statement on Wednesday.

The President called the bill “counterproductive” and said it would create “a disparity in the treatment of one group of career civil servants.” President Obama’s statement also said the bill would “have a significant impact on VA’s ability to retain and recruit qualified professionals and may result in a loss of qualified and capable staff to other government agencies or the private sector.”

“These provisions remove important rights, protections, and incentives which are available to the vast majority of federal employees in other agencies across the government and are essential to ensure that federal employees are afforded due process,” the statement said.

Los Angeles Bans Possession Of Magazines Containing More Than 10 Rounds

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 9.36.21 PM

Via Free Beacon:

Los Angeles banned the possession of gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds in a unanimous vote Tuesday.

The ban goes beyond California state law, which bans the manufacture or sale of those magazines. Instead, within the city of Los Angeles, it will now be a misdemeanor to possess a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds. Once the ordinance goes into effect, gun owners who currently have a magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds will have 60 days to get rid of them before they are in violation of the law.

“People who want to defend their families don’t need a 100-round drum magazine and an automatic weapon to do it,” Councilman Paul Krekorian (D.) told the Los Angeles Times. “Imagine what a gunman on this sidewalk could do with that kind of firepower with a crowd like this.”

Major Study On Campus Sexual Assault Used By Obama Regime Is Debunked

Screen Shot 2015-07-29 at 8.55.04 PM

Why is this not at all surprising?

Via Daily Caller:

A college professor’s research on campus sexual assault that was used by the Obama administration to justify sweeping action on college sexual assault has been called into question in a pair of articles published by Reason magazine.

David Lisak, a retired psychology professor who taught at the University of Massachusetts Boston, has for years been regarded as one of the top academic experts on the matter of sexual assault on campus. In particular, Lisak’s paper “Repeat Rape and Multiple Offending Among Undetected Rapists” is responsible for promoting the theory that the vast majority of college rapes (about 90 percent) are committed by serial offenders, who systematically prey on victims and commit an average of six rapes apiece. Lisak’s paper, based on a survey taken by 1,882 men, identified 120 men as admitting to committing rape based on their description of their past sexual behavior. Lisak classified 76 of these men as repeat rapists; it was from this sample of 76 men that Lisak extrapolated his key findings about campus sexual assault.

Book: Bill Cheating On Hillary Again

Former U.S. Secretary of State Clinton speaks during the Clinton Global Citizens awards ceremony for the 2014 CGI in New York

Via CBS:

Author Ronald Kessler defends secret service agents and makes some sensational claims about former Presidents in his new book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents.

Kessler told Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that the recent struggles of the agency detailed in the media is more the fault of management culture than individual agents.

The culture that has led to this corner-cutting, it’s a culture within the management, not among the agents. Agents…are patriots. They sign up to take a bullet for the President. The management has the attitude of covering up, dismissing problems, retaliating against agents that do reports problems. Unfortunately, President Obama’s decision to appoint Joseph Clancy, a veteran agent, to continue as Director, has just continued the same culture, because he really represents that culture.”

He reports some very scandalous stories in the book, including allegations of former President Clinton carrying out liaisons with another woman when his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is not around.

This is why the move to get a temporary restraining order, they know the even more damning videos are yet to come.

WASHINGTON — David Daleiden, founder of the Center For Medical Progress (CMP), told conservative talk radio host Sean Hannity Tuesday there are nine more sting-operation videos that reveal Planned Parenthood’s operations.

“We have close to 300 hours total of undercover video that was gathered during a 30 month long in depth investigative journalism study of how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of the babies they abort,” Daleiden said, noting that each highlight video released will have the full footage posted on their website without any edits.

Breaking: Los Angeles Superior Court Bars Pro-Life Group From Releasing New Videos About Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Selling….

Censorship from black robed social justice warriors. Reason they did this? 9 more videos, even more damning to come…

Via Sacramento Bee

A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.

The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.

The Center for Medical Progress has released three surreptitiously recorded videos to date that have riled anti-abortion activists. The Senate is expected to vote before its August recess on a Republican effort to bar federal aid to Planned Parenthood in the aftermath of the videos’ release.

In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.”

“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work,” he said.

StemExpress is a Placerville-based company started in 2010 that provides human tissue, blood and other specimens to researchers. Planned Parenthood is one of the company’s providers of fetal tissue.

A devil-worshipping group calling itself the Satanic Temple has been working to raise funds to promote abortion-on-demand and to counter legal efforts such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and 20-week abortion bans.

A highly publicized ceremonial unveiling of the satanic figure of Baphomet in Detroit Saturday, an event billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” sold $25 and $75 tickets, the proceeds of which will be used to support the reproductive rights legal action fund, according to a Temple spokeswoman.

Hillary Clinton Receives Haircut That Costs More Than ‘Everyday American’ Makes in a Week

And yet she still looks like a deer caught in the head lights. Of course, that might have to do with her lying more than her hair…

Via FreeBeacon:

Hillary Clinton recently received a haircut priced at $600 from a stylist at the John Barrett Salon inside of Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.

The New York Post reported that Clinton’s visit to the Fifth Avenue shop Friday shut down portions of the store, its elevators, and the salon, which typically charges $600 for a haircut and blow dry–nearly 14 times what the average American woman pays for a cut–and an additional $600 for hair color treatment.

In some areas of the country, Planned Parenthood has gone on the offensive against local and regional news outlets in an attempt to minimize the exposure of damning undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress.

They are telling these outlets that the videos “should not be aired.” This is an attempt at corporate censorship which the establishment press would treat as important news if almost any other business — for-profit or not-for-profit — made such an attempt.

It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency. For many, it continues to define it to this day.

But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president’s mistress, the real story was never about Monica. It was about ‘subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice… a true abuse of power.’ And it was about Hillary.

Because, according to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary who manipulated and stage managed the story, converting herself from a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval ratings to admirable First Victim – the blindsided wife standing by her man.

Freedom Guard Is Offering Legal Representation For Government Officials Who Oppose Same-Sex Marriage…

Gay-Rights

Via NOLA Com

Judges, justices of peace, magistrates and other government officials in Louisiana who oppose same-sex marriage should not feel compelled to resign from their positions, according to a conservative group.

Freedom Guard is offering legal representation to any government official who is considering resigning from their job over fear they will have to support same-sex marriage now that the U.S. Supreme Court has legalized it in all 50 states.

In a memo, the organization outlined how government officials can avoid assisting with same-sex marriages while carrying out their job functions and not running afoul of the law. For example, they said parish clerks who issued marriage licenses should appoint a deputy clerk to do so, should they feel uncomfortable serving same-sex couples.

State Rep. Mike Johnson, who works for Freedom Guard, wrote the memo and sent it to all Louisiana government officials Tuesday (July 28). He also offered his legal services to officials who oppose same-sex marriage for free.

“Longstanding constitutional and statutory protections for religious liberty are essential to who we are as a people, and their continued vitality should not be called into question now that the U.S. Supreme Court has declared a new right to same-sex marriage,” wrote Johnson in the memo.

Johnson said he has already been contacted by some Louisiana officials seeking representation over this issue of same-sex marriage. He said the people asking for legal advice are judges and justices of the peace. He said he couldn’t give out the names of people who contacted him.

“We are certainly anticipating there is going to be litigation,” Johnson said.

Huffington Post Hires Muslim Brothethood Islamists To Run Arabic-Language Edition

qaradawi

Surprising nobody.

Via NOW:

“Don’t be shocked if you expect one thing and find something entirely different,” writes Anas Fouda, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post’s brand new Arabic-language edition, HuffPost Arabi, in his inaugural editorial.

The warning is apt, for presumably few readers indeed will have expected the liberal American media juggernaut to launch a venture headed by two prominent figures of the Middle East’s religious right.

Fouda, previously an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic (AJA), is managing the website in partnership with his old boss, former AJA director general Wadah Khanfar. Their profiles may make for interesting perusal for existing Huffington Post readers unfamiliar with the Arabic-language media landscape.

An Egyptian national now living in Turkey, Fouda was arrested in the United Arab Emirates in 2013 on suspicion of affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) – an affiliation which he freely admitted had existed since 1988, though he claimed to have held no formal party role since 1995. A browse of his Twitter timeline shows his politics to be fairly bread-and-butter MB; recommending, for instance, articles praising “His Eminence” Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Holocaust-revisionist cleric who routinely denounces Shiite and Alawite Muslims, to say nothing of Jews. Indeed, Fouda has himself on occasion found less-than-obliging things to say about his Semitic cousins, e.g., tweeting last July that, “Only after the latest Israeli aggression on Gaza did I realize the number of Egyptian Jews has increased greatly since the coup.”

Video Montage: Hillary Clinton Not Big On Answering Questions

Network News Spend More Time On Cecil The Lion In One Day Than Planned Parenthood Videos In Two Weeks

cecil

Priorities

Via Newsbusters:

America’s anchors have spoken: the shooting of one lion vastly outweighs the trafficking of baby parts by a taxpayer-funded abortion giant.

In other words, the broadcast news shows spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks.

The three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS censored the third video released Tuesday by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting aborted baby parts — censored it at Planned Parenthood’s urging. But the news shows did find more than 14 minutes for a more important story: the “outrage” over the shooting of Cecil, a famed African lion, by an American dentist.

Tuesday, the networks spent 5 minutes, 44 seconds during their evening news shows on Cecil — and that’s not even counting the teasers. Wednesday morning, ABC, NBC and CBS lamented over the lion for 8 minutes, 17 seconds. But they couldn’t do the same for a story of babies “picked” apart by tweezers.

On July 29, Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer highlighted the “very disturbing story” with “international outrage” before turning to ABC correspondent David Wright for the full story on the lion-shooting by an American, now, according to Wright, “pretty much the most hated man on the internet.”

First Batch Of Obama’s Anti-ISIS Rebels Cross Into Syria, Promptly Arrested By Al-Nusra Front For Being “American Agents”

BTW: This is costing us $500 million

Via PJM:

On Monday I reported here at PJ Media that the first 50 graduates of Obama’s U.S.-trained “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel army had left Turkey for Syria two weeks ago — and haven’t been heard from since.

But today comes a new report that a fresh class of U.S.-trained recruits were arrested today upon entering Syria.

Tanir links to this Turkish Sputnik News report that says Jabhat al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria, arrested the 18 U.S.-trained members of Obama’s “vetted moderate” rebel army for being American agents.

This is just the latest embarrassing episode for Obama’s $500 million anti-ISIS army approved by congressional Republicans back in September.

And despite having spent half of those funds already, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter revealed to Congress earlier this month that only 60 fighters had been trained so far. This amounts to $4 million per fighter.
