“What difference does it make!?”

Via NY Post:

Coming soon to a theater near you: the movie Hillary Clinton wishes didn’t exist.

The trailer has just dropped for Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” based on the book by Mitchell Zuckoff, which in turn is based on the eyewitness reports of five of the six CIA contractors present that night. The sixth, Tyrone Woods, perished in the battle.

Due Jan. 15, “13 Hours” seeks to continue the winning streak of fact-based military movies released in January: Two years ago “Lone Survivor” attracted a huge audience, and this winter “American Sniper” ruled the box office.

Also “judge-shopping” is a frowned-upon technique as well.

Via TheDC:

The defense attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray have text message evidence they say shows a prosecutor in the office of state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby “judge-shopping” for a warrant for the cops’ cell phones.

The Baltimore Sun reports that in a motion filed Wednesday, the cops’ attorneys said they have phone logs and text messages from April 27 showing that assistant state’s attorney Albert Peisinger reached out to Baltimore circuit court judge Timothy Doory to sign off on a search warrant for the officers’ department-issued phones. That was after a search warrant had already been denied by a different judge.

Via USA Today:

Facebook on Thursday revealed more details about its plan to find cost-effective ways to provide Internet access to the 10% of the Earth’s population that lives far from cell towers or land lines.

The solution is a thousand-pound drone the size of a Boeing 737 that will be launched by helium balloons.

Powered by the sun, it would fly lazy circles more than 11 miles above the Earth, providing broadband-level Internet for people in a 50 mile radius below.

The team’s dream is “a backbone of the Internet using lasers in the sky,” said Yael Maguire, director of Facebook’s Connectivity Lab.

Romney Goes RINO: Ted Cruz “Hurt The Cause” When He Criticized Obama For Giving Billions To World’s Top State-Sponsor Of Terrorism

Romney

Concern trolling at its finest

Washington (CNN) – Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Thursday that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetoric on Iran “hurts the cause.”

“I am opposed to the Iran deal, but @SenTedCruz is way over the line on the Obama terrorism charge. Hurts the cause,” Romney, acting in his emerging role as party elder, tweeted Thursday.

Cruz, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said Monday that President Barack Obama’s administration will become “the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism” if the Iran deal his administration brokered earlier this month goes into effect.

Cruz was referring to the billions of dollars in relief Iran will benefit from when international sanctions lift once Iran meets the new restrictions on its nuclear program, per the new deal.

Iran is a top state-sponsor of terrorism, financing groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, and opponents of the deal argue that Iran will use some of the financial surplus from sanctions relief to boost its support for those groups.

Kerry: Iranian Leaders Chanting “Death To America” Doesn’t Mean They Want To Kill Us…

Mind-numbing

Via Clarion Project:

In his testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee to sell the U.S. administration’s deal between Iran and the world’s superpowers, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was pointedly asked, “Is it the policy of the ayatollah, if you can answer for him, that Iran wants to destroy the United States?”

The question, posed by Congressman Lloyd “Ted” Poe (R-Texas) was a reference to the many times the leaders of the Iranian regime have threatened to annihilate the United States.

In response, Kerry said, “I don’t believe they’ve said that. I think they’ve said ‘Death to America,’ in their chants, but I have not seen this specific.”

Poe countered, “Well, I kind of take that to mean that they want us dead. That would seem like that would be their policy. He said that. You don’t think that’s their policy? I’m not mincing words. Do you think it’s their policy to destroy us?”

“I think they have a policy of opposition to us and a great enmity, but I have no specific knowledge of a plan by Iran to actually destroy us,” Kerry answered.

White House: “There’s Not A Lot Of Evidence” Planned Parenthood Has Failed To “Live Up To The Highest Ethical Standards”…

Screen-Shot-2015-07-30-at-10.38.54-AM

Reality begs to differ.

REPORTER: “I know you said these videos are selectively edited, the Planned Parenthood stuff, there are several more that are slated to come out, I understand. Has the White House had any communication with Planned Parenthood about standardizing procedures for fetal tissue research? Has the White House had — research? Has the White House had any concerns about illegalities in this rem? Are there any investigations?”

EARNEST: “Not that I’m aware of. Planned Parenthood has policies and procedures in place and they say those live up to the highest ethical standards. For what those standards are, I’d refer you to Planned Parenthood. As I mentioned, based on the essentially fraudulent way in which these videos have been released, there’s not a lot of evidence right now that planned parenthood hasn’t lived up to those standards. But again, I refer you to Planned Parenthood.”

Hillary Clinton Calls GOP Plan To Defund Planned Parenthood “Regrettable”…

You know what else is regrettable? Ripping a baby apart while it’s still alive to sell its body parts.

SILVER SPRING, Md. (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday called it “regrettable” that Republican lawmakers are attempting to cut federal funding from the health organization Planned Parenthood.

Pelosi Calls Obama’s Iran Deal A “Diplomatic Masterpiece”

Rejoice! Chicago Jesus has performed another miracle!

Via Washington Examiner:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she believes Democrats will be able to uphold President Obama’s veto if Republicans vote down his nuclear deal with Iran in September and she called the agreement “a diplomatic masterpiece.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., said Democrats will rally behind the agreement even after the long August recess, when outside groups plan a media blitz aimed at sinking public support.

“More and more [Democrats] have conferred to me they will be there to sustain the veto,” Pelosi told reporters on Thursday.

Congress has begun a 60-day review of the deal, which would lift sanctions against Iran in exchange for a reduction in its nuclear weapon capability. Republicans mostly oppose the agreement and with majorities in both the House and Senate, will likely garner enough votes to back a disapproval of the deal.

So they think this is a hoax?

REPORTER: “Yesterday, Eric was unsure if he [President] has seen any of these other videos. Do you know if he has seen the other videos and does the White House have any reaction?”

EARNEST: “I know he has been following the story in the news. Again, as you have heard me say before, there are — there’s A.M. Will reason to think that this is merely the tried and true tactic that we have seen from extremists on the right to edit this video and selectively release it that grossly distorts the position of the person who is actually speaking on the video. Planned Parenthood has indicated that’s what has occurred here. And any Resue of the policy that Planned Parenthood says they implement indicates that the views expressed on the videos or at least the way they are pictured on the videos is entirely inaccurate.

Revolting to say the least.

Via Newsbusters:

…At one point, a buyer asked, “What was that? A crack, was that the just the little bits of the skull?” to which they casually responded, “Mhmm.”

Ginde, later looking at the dish proclaimed, “It’s a baby” and pointed out the heart.

The medical assistant also chimed in at one point:  “My fingers will smush it if I try to get it out” and laughed over the dead baby, deeming the intact parts worthy of “five stars.”

Ginde also recognized a baby brain “blasted out” with water, and noted she sometimes doesn’t use water, so that the parts aren’t as “war-torn.”

The video ended with one Planned Parenthood medical assistant announcing: “Another boy!”

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran says it will not allow American or Canadian inspectors working for the U.N. nuclear watchdog to visit its nuclear facilities.

Donald Trump lashed out Wednesday at a female lawyer whom he had called “disgusting” several years ago for requesting a break to pump breast milk in the middle of a deposition, calling her a “vicious, horrible person.”

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, the Republican presidential candidate claimed that the attorney, Elizabeth Beck, had wanted to pump breast milk in other people’s presence.

Trump alleged that Beck was now retaliating against him because she was unhappy about having lost that legal battle, and that she had fabricated a story about Trump losing his cool and storming out of the deposition room.

Donald Trump is a brand, and his New Hampshire supporters are itching to buy it.

A Bloomberg Politics focus group of 12 Republican and independent voters who are supportive of Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy shed light Wednesday night on the billionaire’s swift rise to the top of the GOP field, and confirmed that his brash, “You’re fired!” style and lack of experience in politics is more of an asset than a liability.
