Breaking: By Sharyl Attkisson, The Daily Signal

New Benghazi allegation puts spotlight on Hillary Clinton confidants, alleged after-hours document review.

As the House Select Committee on Benghazi prepares for its first hearing this week, a former State Department diplomat is coming forward with a startling allegation: Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

The company that runs the conservative Breitbart.com news site says the IRS has selected the network for an audit, in a move company executives suggest is politically motivated.

Breitbart News Network, a California-based company which runs several conservative websites, says the IRS recently audited its 2012 financial information.

“The Obama administration’s timing on this is exquisite, but try as they might through various methods to silence us, we will only get more emboldened,” Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, said in a written statement. Read more at foxnews.com.

Yoho crushes Rush in GOP congressional primary

Last night challenger Jake Rush proved that the old adage, the problem with political jokes is they get elected, isn’t always true.

An acrimonious and sometimes loopy battle for the conservative heart of North Central Florida has ended, with voters giving incumbent freshman Rep. Ted Yoho an overwhelming victory in the 3rd District Republican primary.

With all but a handful of precincts reporting, Yoho received 79.32 percent of the 46,953 votes cast in a landslide victory over challenger Jake Rush, a lawyer from Gainesville. Yoho spent $452,000 to Rush’s $198,000, and still had $302,000 on hand as of Aug. 6.

“There was a lot of anxiety leading up to this moment,” Yoho told a cheering crowd of supporters at Perry Plantation & Kennels, a stone mansion in the middle of a pasture east of Gainesville. “The third is the best district in Florida. You showed us that you like what we are doing for you and we are going to work harder for you.”  Read more at ocala.com.

President Obama authorized airstrikes against Islamist terrorists in Iraq and approved a humanitarian mission to deliver food and other supplies to tens of thousands of Iraqis trapped on mountaintops, moves that represent the most significant re-engagement in Iraq since formal combat operations ended three years ago.

Speaking at the White House on Thursday night, the president said the U.S. cannot sit idly by as innocent Iraqis are slaughtered by the Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Letter Urges President Obama to be More Transparent

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!

Hegseth On Shinseki’s Resignation: This Is Only The Beginning

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.”

Redskins Fire Back Against Harry Reid, Senators on Name Change

Rapper Wale

The Washington Redskins took on Democrats in the U.S. Senate on Friday, telling Majority Leader Harry Reid that his efforts to orchestrate a campaign to force a team name change were misguided and failed to recognize the name’s “deep and personal meaning.”

“I hope you will attend one of our home games, where you would witness first-hand that the Washington Redskins are a positive, unifying force for our community in a city and region that is divided on so many levels,” team President Bruce Allen wrote Mr. Reid  Read more at:  washingtontimes.com.

40 Veterans Die at Phoenix VA | Time to Demand Accountability

New Video from Concerned Veterans for America: “Demand Accountability”

Video Highlights The Dysfunctional VA Healthcare System And Calls On Harry Reid To Support The VA Management Accountability Act

Arlington, Va. ­– Concerned Veterans for America today released a new web video, “Demand Accountability,” as part of its ongoing VA Accountability project, which calls for reform of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and supports the VA Management Accountability Act—a bill that gives the Secretary of Veterans Affairs the power to hold managers accountable for their performance—both positively and negatively.

“Demand Accountability,” which focuses on the VA healthcare system’s culture of dysfunction, highlights the recent news that 40 vets’ deaths have been linked to long wait times for care at the Phoenix VA and points out the large cash bonuses VA administrators around the country received even after overseeing hospitals where severe mismanagement exposed veterans to health risks and in some cases even led to their deaths. The video also calls on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to support the VA Management Accountability Act.

Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement:

“Just yesterday The American Legion called for the resignation of the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki—action we fully support and called for at CVA a year ago. But replacing Shinseki won’t actually lead to reform unless the next VA secretary is empowered to hold managers and administrators accountable for their poor performance. That’s why the VA Management Accountability Act is so important; it equips VA leaders with the tools necessary for meaningful reform.”

Amy Kremer has Resigned From Tea Party Express

‘I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while,’ Kremer says

Earlier today, I learned in an email that my friend Amy Kremer has resigned from Tea Party Express.  She has been in the Tea Party/Conservative movement since day one and Chairman of TPE for quite some time.  It didn’t take very long after the initial shock wore off for my excitement to build as I realized that she must be headed for new challenges in the effort to save our republic.  From Amy’s Facebook page:

Friends, I resigned from Tea Party Express. I wanted to share the news with you!

Louisville, KY – Amy Kremer announced today her resignation as Chairman of the Tea Party Express, effective immediately:

“This has been a really difficult decision for me, but the time has come for me to leave Tea Party Express. I’ve wanted to move in a different direction for a while, but also wanted to make sure that any change I make was also a positive change for the conservative movement.

“So as we move into this election cycle, I think the time is right.

“As one of the only remaining members of the original tour, Tea Party Express has been a huge part of my life and I am proud of the historic work we accomplished – like partnering with CNN to host the first ever Tea Party Presidential Debate and electing conservatives such as Senators Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to Congress.

“The past 5 years of working with the conservative grassroots movement has been the most meaningful of my life. As one of the original founders of the modern day tea party movement, I am humbled by the community of activists who have built it. I’ve very grateful to the many people I’ve met and worked with along the way.

“While I can’t give the specifics yet, my new projects will keep me working in that movement. While I may no longer be on a bus, I will definitely be on the ground, continuing my work in the movement and for the conservative cause. I’m excited about engaging in competitive Senate primaries and supporting fiscal conservatives in the coming weeks.”

In an article that appeared on CNN’s PoliticalTicker blog published shortly after Kremer’s Facebook post, some of the specifics about her future were revealed.  Mitch McConnell can’t be too pleased.  Hint: I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she made her announcement from Kentucky.  Read the piece on PoliticalTicker.com here.

Speaking Truth to Power – The Black Conservatives Fund

On Monday, April 14th former ACORN whistleblower and True the Vote spokesperson Anita Moncrief announced the launching of a new PAC, The Black Conservatives Fund:

“I am proud to be on the board of a new PAC, The Black Conservative Fund. BCF will support black conservative and Republican candidates. We are also focusing on education, training, challenging race baiters/hustlers and working together to improve our communities.

“Our website http://blackconservativesfund.com is live and our proud board members are: Ken Blackwell, CL Bryant, Sonnie Johnson, Erik Rush, Kevin Daniels, Princella Smith, KCarl Smith, Alfonzo Rachel, Ron Miller, myself and others.”

 

The press release announcing the launch stated the following:  Black Conservatives Fund is committed to supporting black conservatives who are dedicated to spreading the message of limited government and traditional values. The organization will support candidates through direct contributions in addition to web, TV, and radio advertisements, conducting get-out-the-vote drives, and funding other activities that BCF endorsed candidates may need.  “All across America, black conservatives are running for office in record numbers.  The lock that the liberals have held on the black vote is slowly but surely breaking,” said Anita Moncrief, a founding member of BCF’s board of advisors.  You may find the complete press release here.

The BCF came out slugging and wasted no time announcing that the first two candidates it is supporting are T. W. Shannon, running for Congress from Oklahoma, and Mia Love, running a second campaign for Congress from Utah.
