Bill Clinton dismisses #MeToo criticism

(DAILY BEAST) — In a new interview set to air this weekend on CBS Sunday Morning, former President Bill Clinton will respond for the first time to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) assertion that he should have resigned over the Lewinsky affair.

“You have to—really ignore what the context was,” Clinton says, according to a CBS transcript. “But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. So, I—but I just disagree with her.”

Gillibrand, who enthusiastically endorsed Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and has longstanding ties to the Clinton family, told The New York Times last November that the “appropriate response” to the scandal over his White House affair with intern Monica Lewinsky would have been for Bill Clinton to resign.

Trump hints at pardon for Martha Stewart

(POLITICO) — President Donald Trump indicated Thursday he is strongly considering commuting the remaining sentence for disgraced former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich while also suggesting a potential pardon for Martha Stewart.

Discussing his recent decision to pardon Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative political commentator and filmmaker convicted of violating campaign finance laws, the president told reporters he was contemplating “another one.”

“There’s another one that I’m thinking about, Rod Blagojevich,” Trump said aboard Air Force One, according to a press pool report. “Eighteen years in jail for being stupid and saying things that every other politician, you know that many other politicians say.”

Surprise! Susan Rice’s son now leads Republicans

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice

The son of Barack Obama’s “Typhoid Mary,” inspired by the tea party, now is providing leadership for a Republican student organization.

Caleb Parke reported at Fox News that John David Rice-Cameron, the son of onetime Obama administration official Susan Rice, now is leading a GOP student association, and shared with the chores in a recent “Make Stanford Great Again” event.

“My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas,” he told Fox News. “We disagree on most of the standard Republican/Democrat disagreements. However, we agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage.”

His father is Ian Cameron, a former executive at ABC, and in his sophomore year, he is the activism chief for the California College Republicans.

His mother was integral to several of the scandals of the Obama administration, and was given the “Typhoid” moniker by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

At the time, during the Obama administration, he said, “Every time something went wrong, she seemed to turn up in the middle of it, whether it was these allegations of improper unmasking and potential improper surveillance, whether it was Benghazi, or many of the other fiascos of the Obama administration.”

The “unmasking” was what the Obama administration did to Americans inadvertently caught up in its spying, which was supposed to be on foreign interests. The government is not supposed to spy on Americans as a matter of routine, so when its surveillance of foreign interests caught an American in the conversations, their names are supposed to be withheld.

“Unmasking” is simply Obama administration officials making those names available.

Fox’s report said the 20-year-old John David “avidly supports President Trump.”

“Rice-Cameron hosted controversial expert on radical Islam Robert Spencer, pushed for a professor with ties to Antifa to resign, pressured the school to reverse its decision on banning American flags on their club T-shirts, and Tuesday the group hosted Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens for a ‘Make Stanford Great Again!’ event,” Fox reported.

He reported listening to conservatives on the airwaves.

“This worldview and these principles compel me to promote conservative ideas at Stanford, and beyond,” the son said. “I’m driven by a fundamental sense of urgency over the fact that Americans are slowly losing their liberty, and I believe that liberty is being valued less and less. I want to turn the tide, and college campuses are crucial to doing so.”

While Fox described his mother as “one of the Obama administration’s most unpopular officials among conservatives and Republicans because of her attempt, as U.N. ambassador, to blame the 2012 terrorist attack on two American facilities in Benghazi, Libya on an offensive YouTube video,” dissatisfaction with her probably went beyond that.

The Daily Caller reported she was the one who issued a stand down order to national security council officials developing aggressive options to respond to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

What she actually did, though, probably won’t be public for some time.

That’s because key evidence on whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump team may be kept under lock and key for five years, at former President Obama’s presidential library.

The government-watchdog group Judicial Watch confirmed the NSC had denied its Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, request for documents related to Rice’s alleged unmasking of the “identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team.”

The NSC said those documents have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library, while pointedly adding, “you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.”

The Washington Post at one point noted she was given a full four Pinocchios over her claims about chemical weapons being removed from Syria.

She had said, “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”

WND reported last year about her long history of lying to cover for Obama.

Rice served as the ambassador to the United Nations during Obama’s first term. It was in this capacity that she misled the public about the 2012 attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, a Muslim terror attack on Americans that she attributed to an obscure online video.

Rice was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship and in 1990 earned a doctoral degree from Oxford University in England. In her dissertation, she portrayed Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as a “pragmatic, intelligent, sensible, gentle, balanced man” in possession of much “patience and restraint.” Mugabe was in actuality a genocidal dictator guilty of unspeakable atrocities, yet the dissertation was honored as the U.K.’s most distinguished in international relations.

In fact, she became the central figure in what some have called the most grotesque instance of fake news in U.S. history – the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens and two U.S. Navy SEALs, lost their lives in the attack, which Rice blamed on “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world.” Five days later, she went on five Sunday TV news programs and falsely claimed the Benghazi attack was a “spontaneous reaction” to the “hateful and offensive video.”

She made no mention of al-Qaida or other organized terrorist groups taking part in the attack on the consulate, likely to cover up the fact that arms were being run from Libya to Syria, where the Obama administration was secretly trying to overthrow the regime of President Bashar Assad.

She also embraced the 2014 deal in which President Obama freed five senior Taliban commanders and high-value terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for U.S. Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who deserted in 2009.

Under President Clinton’s administration, he “wheeled Rice out to lie to television viewers about inadequate security provided at U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania,” Matthew Vadum noted in a Frontpage magazine article. The U.S. ambassador to Kenya, Prudence Bushnell, had reportedly begged then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for extra security, which was never provided. After the bombings, Rice showed up on PBS to speak for the Clinton administration. She claimed the administration had “maintain[ed] a high degree of security at all of our embassies at all times” and that there was “no telephone warning or call of any sort like that, that might have alerted either embassy just prior to the blast.”

In 1996, Rice helped to persuade President Clinton to reject Sudan’s offer to deliver Osama bin Laden to the U.S.

‘Gay’-porn kingpin: Double standard for ‘lying homophobe’

(BREITBART) — NEW YORK — Michael Lucas, a gay pornographic film actor and director, is calling out what he says is “hypocrisy” and a “double standard” in the entertainment industry.

Lucas charged “two sets of rules” are being evidenced by the swift firing of Roseanne Barr over racist remarks while NBC has remained silent in the face of liberal MSNBC host Joy Reid’s alleged and admitted anti-gay comments as well as significant questions about Reid’s claim that her controversial blog was hacked.

Speaking to Breitbart News in an interview, Lucas labeled Reid a “lying homophobe.”

Too much offense: Christian soccer star rejects U.S. team

jaelene

A star women’s soccer player rejected a call from the U.S. women’s national team – last year – because team organizers and sponsors were promoting homosexuality at the time.

A report published at ESPN reveals that Jaelene Hinkle confirmed she refused the call-up because as a Christian she could not wear the team jersey honoring LGBTQ “pride.”

“I just felt so convicted in my spirit that it wasn’t my job to wear this jersey,” Hinkle said. “I gave myself three days to just seek and pray and determine what he was asking me to do in this situation … I knew in my spirit I was doing the right thing. I knew I was being obedient.”

Hinkley, who previously had made eight appearances for the team, hasn’t been called up to the national team since then, she confirmed.

She plays for the North Carolina Courage of the National Women’s Soccer League and some fans at the Courage game in Portland this week booed her, and waved rainbow flags.

“Hinkle did not comment after the match but received the backing of her teammate Jessica McDonald,” the report said.

“She is high on her faith, and in my honest option that’s absolutely incredible,” McDonald said. “If she’s for God, then that’s fine, that’s great if that’s what keeps her going in her life and keeps positivity in her life, then let that be. Everyone has their opinions about the Bible and God. It’s obviously not in my control what she thinks.”

She added, “I’m still going to be friends with her. We have no problems with each other. She’s never said anything bad about me. She never said anything bad about anybody. So, for people to pass on that kind of judgment on another human being, I think it’s sort of uncalled for.”

The coach of the Courage, who are at the top of the NWSL standings, Paul Riley, said he must credit her for being honest.

“Whatever her beliefs are, whatever she believes in, that’s her. It doesn’t affect the team. It doesn’t seem to affect anybody on the team.’

The Courage beat the Portland team 4-1.

Hinkle’s comments first appeared during an interview with the 700 Club,

That report said, “Jaelene’s love for the game started on the youth soccer fields of Denver, Colorado. Raised in a Christian home, she learned about her identity in Christ, and committed her life to Jesus when she was 12.”

She said, “At that age, it was like, ‘OK, I’m starting to connect the dots and I want to see where this takes me. Like I want to find out who God is.’”

Her public-school career landed her a scholarship to Texas Tech University, where she sometimes found herself between two worlds.

“And like on paper I was doing really well, but like inside it was just like I’m kind of miserable right now,” she said in the report. “I mean, there were Saturdays where you’d go out and you would hang out with your friends and you’re partying and then I’m like, ‘I have church tomorrow morning.’ And then I’m in church and I’m like, ‘What did I just do Saturday night?’”

Her path to professional was sidetracked briefly when, during her junior year, she was diagnosed with a blood clot in her leg.

But that treatment could stop her from playing soccer, the 700 Club reported.

“The first thing that my mom said to me was, ‘We’re just going to pray. We’re just going to pray all night long,’” she recalled.

In the morning, the doctor told her her vein was open.

“You got your miracle,” he said.

After a successful senior year and being drafted into the professionals, she was invited to play for the national team.

Then LGBT activists announced the team would be promoting homosexuality with their jerseys.

She withdrew.

And found peace.

“I knew in my spirit I was doing the right thing.”

New Jersey resuscitates Obamacare mandate tax

(ATR) — The Republican tax cuts signed by President Trump repealed the Obamacare individual mandate tax nationwide, but New Jersey residents will be stuck paying it due to the state’s Democrat legislature and governor. Governor Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed the new tax into law that will impose the tax on residents who choose not to purchase “qualifying” health insurance as defined by Obama-era regulations.

New Jersey’s Obamacare tax will disproportionately hit low and middle income New Jersey taxpayers:

Google labels Republicans as ‘Nazis’

(VICE) — Less than one week before the California primary, Google is listing “Nazism” as the ideology of the California Republican Party.

In the “knowledge panel” that provides easy access to information next to search results, Google lists “Nazism” as an “ideology” of the party. The word “Nazism” is hyperlinked to a secondary page that shows “Nazism” alongside other “ideologies” of California Republicans like “Conservatism,” “Market liberalism,” “Fiscal conservatism,” and “Green conservatism.”

California voters have been casting their absentee ballots for weeks ahead of the next Tuesday’s statewide primary elections which will help determine the majority in the House of Representative and the potential next Governor of the world’s fifth largest economy.
