In this July 22nd clip from Hannity, Mark Levin demolishes Jon Stewart. More importantly, he gives a brief history of Israel, Palestine and the Middle East
Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent in history? Sadly, this has not been the case. In reality it has been just the oppisite. Finally journalists other than Fox News are speaking out about the secrecy and outright censorship of the Obama regime.
On July 8th the Society of Professional Journalists sent a letter to President Obama calling him out on the lack of transparency of his administration. It was signed by four members of SPJ including David Cuillier its president, as well as thirty five others in the field of journalism. While this letter may be an example of too little to late, it just might be an indication of the growing frustration with this president by those who were once his most rabid supporters. Me thinks the Pied Piper is out of tune!

‘I was cautioning folks about email and how we have several occasions where Congress has asked for emails … we need to be cautious about what we say in emails’
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today released new e-mails at a hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen showing former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official Lois Lerner leading an IRS effort to hide information from Congressional inquiries.
From the April 9, 2013, email exchange among Lerner, an IRS technology employee (Maria Hooke), and the agency’s Director for Exempt Organizations Exam Unit Manager Nanette Downing who led audits:
I had a question today about OCS [Microsoft Office Communications Server]. I was cautioning folks about email and how we have several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails – so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails. Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable – I don’t know, but told them I would get back to them. Do you know?

Conservative election integrity organization True The Vote filed suit in federal court Tuesday against Mississippi’s Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and the Mississippi Republican Party, asking a judge for an immediate injunction against them so that the election material from the state’s June 24 GOP primary runoff can be inspected.
The lawsuit comes as allegations that Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) campaign and his allies engaged in voter fraud to win last Tuesday’s runoff against conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Cochran bested McDaniel by fewer than 7,000 votes but did so with an overwhelming turnout from liberal Democrats in the black community.
“All we are asking is that the MS State Republican Party follow the law; allow their designated county representatives to inspect the poll books and ballots, give them the review time they are permitted by law, and allow them to uphold their responsibility to MS voters,” True the Vote president Catherine Engelbrecht (emphasis mine) said in a statement about the suit. “True the Vote has been inundated with reports from voters across Mississippi who are outraged to see the integrity of this election being undermined so that politicos can get back to business as usual. Enough is enough.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

In a victory for religious freedom, the Supreme Court ruled today 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. in the case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (formerly named Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby). The case was the strongest legal challenge to Obamacare since 2012.
Justice Alito authored the majority opinion, and Justice Kennedy wrote a concurring opinion. Justice Ginsburg wrote the dissent, joined by Justices Sotomayor, Breyer, and Kagan. Read more at townhall.com.
Update: 800 Hinds County Voters Crossed Over Illegally
By Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit on Thursday, June 26, 2014, 3:03 PM:
The Chris McDaniel campaign has identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots have been cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted.
This after Thad Cochran reportedly relied on 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes to pull him to victory in the June 24 runoff.
UPDATE: The Cochran campaign is reportedly asking county clerks not to certify the voting rolls until the last day possible so that the McDaniel people will not be able to look at the rolls and challenge them. Read more HERE.

“If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens? I think you know him.”
In yet another one of his ambush videos, guerilla conservative Jason Mattera attended one of Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices book signings and served up some cringe-inducing “social justice” on the former Secretary of State.
Mattera politely approached the entourage surrounded Clinton and asked her to sign a copy of his book. Upon asking whom she should sign it to, Mattera casually replied, “If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens? I think you know him,” referring to the former U.S Ambassador killed at the Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Continue reading at: truthrevolt.com.
Another clear example of inmates running the asylum!
A spokeswoman for the State Department referred to the Taliban operatives released from Guantanamo Bay as part of the deal to retrieve Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl as “gentlemen.” In a Monday afternoon appearance with Andrew Mitchell on MSNBC, Marie Harf, the deputy spokesperson at State and an alumna of the Obama campaign, argued with Mitchell over the question of whether or not Congress should have ben notified about the exchange before it occured.
Noah Rothman at Hot Air documents the conversation, and near the end of the interview, Harf defends the deal against questions about whether or not the Taliban operatives could return to Afghanistan.
“Under this administration, we’ve put in very stringent processes to determine that we can sufficiently mitigate the risk that the terrorists, the possibility that these gentlemen will go back to the battlefield,” Harf says.

After the release this weekend of a U.S. soldier held captive by the Taliban for five years, questions are now being raised about the five terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay in the prisoner swap. Former CIA operative Gary Berntsen joined Steve Doocy this morning to give us some background on the men.
The names of the detainees are Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Mohammed Nabi, Khairullah Khairkhwa, and Abdul Haq Wasiq. They are believed to be the top five Taliban leaders at the prison and were selected in 2012 by Taliban leaders as part of initial negotiations.
Berntsen noted that Wasiq was the Taliban’s deputy chief of intelligence, and along with the other four were involved in the murders of 6,000 Hazara tribesmen when the Taliban seized the city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
“These men conducted a genocide. They are among the worst people on the planet,” said Berntsen, noting that the men will now stay in Qatar for a year “at the pool” and will return to the Taliban as “rock stars” after that time is up.
Berntsen said this is a “meaningful concession” by the Obama administration and will inspire the Taliban to continue the fight. Berntsen, who was active in the CIA when these men were captured, said he would have tried to find another way, calling the price for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “too high.”
Berntsen is currently Regional Director for Concerned Veterans of America (CVA). On Saturday, June 7th from 5-8pm, CVA and Gainesville Harley Davidson are sponsoring the Honoring Our Veterans Rally at the dealership. Come on out and meet Gary and have a great time! Click HERE for the Flyer.
When I watched the segment on Justice with Judge Jeanine about the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from Afghanistan last night, I had this weird feeling that something wasn’t quite right. I couldn’t put my finger on it but when I ran across this conversation on Twitter (please excuse the F word) late last night, it literally made my jaw drop. The last tweet in the chain was from Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl: “…I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!” I could opine for several paragraphs on my thoughts, but I’ll let the readers do that on their own.
Around noon today, May 30th, Pete Hegseth, CEO of Conservative Veterans for America, issued a press release on the resignation of VA chief, Gen. Eric Shinseki:

Hegseth On Shinseki’s Resignation: This Is Only The Beginning
“We need both reform and a reformer.”
Arlington, Va. – In an historic move, President Obama accepted the resignation of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Sec. Eric Shinseki, following evidence of widespread patient backlogs and alleged cover-ups by administrators throughout the VA healthcare system.
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) was the first veterans organization to call for Secretary Shinseki to step down, doing so over a year ago. CVA was recently joined by The American Legion—the nation’s largest veterans group—in calling for Shinseki’s resignation.
Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:
“Concerned Veterans for America fully supports President Obama’s decision to accept Sec. Shinseki’s resignation. More importantly, we emphasize that it doesn’t solve the widespread, systemic problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs. In fact, this is only the beginning. We need both reforms and a reformer, which is why it’s essential for Congress to pass systemic reforms at VA in the coming weeks and months, bringing real accountability, transparency, and choice to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The government is failing our veterans; it’s time to get to work fixing VA.”
