RFK, Theodore White, and the Great Debate over Immigration

By Jerry Kammer

In 1968, when Robert F. Kennedy was a senator from New York campaigning for the presidency, he frequently made a call to idealism that survives as a quotation vividly tied to his memory: "Some men see things as they are and say, why? I dream things that never were and say, why not?"

Over the past several months, as I researched the transformative 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act to write the paper we will release Thursday at the National Press Club, I thought often of Kennedy's famous quote.

The Hart-Celler Act was an expression of a national commitment to ideals that had been contradicted by the blatantly discriminatory immigration policy Congress adopted 41 years earlier. Under that earlier legislation immigrants were admitted not according to merit, but under a system that issued visas on the basis of national origin.

ATTACK SCENARIO: How Hillary Clinton’s Lust for Money and Power Led to America’s "Digital Pearl Harbor"

It's hard to overstate the impact on national security of what is commonly known as "The OPM Hack". The secret files of 22 million individuals who have applied for security clearances -- maintained by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) -- was ripped off as cleanly as Michael Moore stealing cookies from a Girl Scout.


Every person who applies for a security clearance fills out an electronic application called an EQIP or EPSQ, which are questionnaires of applicants.

Those applying for a Top Secret clearance must answer an extremely detailed questionnaire delving into every aspect of their personal life: marital affairs, drug use, criminal activity, and any other bit of information that foreign intelligence services might use to blackmail or compromise a cleared individual.

All of those files were stolen by Red China.

The OPM hack has been so devastating to clandestine operations, including NOCs (agents operating under non-official cover), that the CIA just pulled its agents from Beijing "for their safety".

Virtually every current and future military and intelligence operation was put at risk by the OPM hack.

QOTD: "Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is sticking it out until the end of October because he wants to be able to help Barack Obama pass his big government agenda.

Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) wants to reauthorize the crony capitalist Export-Import Bank. He wants to pass a bloated transportation bill. He wants to fund Planned Parenthood. In short, Boehner wants to give a big wet kiss to Barack Obama’s agenda on the way out the door when no one can hold him accountable.

This is akin to the Democrats having to rely on retiring members of Congress to pass Obamacare in 2010 because they would not have to face the voters again.

The only way to stop this is to proceed to the motion to vacate the chair.

Call your member of Congress today and demand that he support the motion to vacate the chair. The Capitol Hill switchboard number is (202) 224-3121." --Erick Erickson

MARVELOUS: ISIS to Use Obama Nuclear Arms Race to Achieve "Nuclear Tsunami" and "Religious Cleansing"

Writing at The Washington Times, L. Todd Wood relays excerpts of a startling new book by a German reporter who was able to embed himself with ISIS for nearly two weeks. What he found should raise the hair on the back of your neck:

Nuclear annihilation across the globe. This is what a German reporter who successfully embedded with the Islamic State says the terror group is planning. Jurgen Todenhofer released his findings in a book titled “Inside IS - Ten Days in the Islamic State,” reports the UK’s Daily Express.

“The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people. The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS. ISIS intends to get its hands on nuclear weapons,” says Todenhofer, calling the group a “nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history.”

“They now control land greater in size than the United Kingdom and are supported by an almost ecstatic enthusiasm the like of which I’ve never encountered before in a war zone. Every day hundreds of willing fighters from all over the world come. They are the most brutal and most dangerous enemy I have ever seen in my life. I don’t see anyone who has a real chance to stop them. Only Arabs can stop IS. I came back very pessimistic.”

People Have Been Thrown in Prison for the Kinds of Stuff Carly Fiorina Engaged in as Lucent’s CEO

While Carly Fiorina has unquestionable debate skills, the more I research her background, the more troubled I become. While it's clear that she is -- politically speaking -- somewhere to the left of Jeb Bush on policy, it is her business record that is most alarming.

Let me start with a little history lesson and a company called Lernout & Houspie. Founded in 1987 by two Belgians, L&H went public in 1995 on NASDAQ and operated from U.S. headquarters in Burlington, MA. Specializing in voice recognition software, L&H rode the tech boom to a peak market valuation of $10 billion.

L&H, despite its rise, was dogged by rumors of financial fraud. By early 1999, The Wall Street Journal reported that its earnings had been inflated. A subsequent WSJ investigation led to revelations in August of 2000 that much of the company's value had been achieved by booking imaginary sales through a wide range of accounting gimmicks.

In April 2001, the founders -- Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie, as well as former CEO Gaston Bastiaens -- were arrested in what was then one of the largest accounting scandals in history.

OH, HE’S SO HISTORIC, MELVIN: Obama Grants 1,500 Terrorists Residency and Asylum

By Judicial Watch

As if the President Obama’s sweeping amnesty measures haven’t compromised national security enough, the administration let 1,519 “inadmissible” foreigners embroiled in terrorism into the U.S. last year because the crimes were committed “while under duress.”

Before the Obama administration tweaked a federal law last year, these foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes. But under the changes the Secretary of Homeland Security has “discretionary authority” to waive certain grounds of inadmissibility relating to terrorism. We’ve seen this discretionary authority abused in the last few years and in fact, the administration has eliminated a zero tolerance policy for granting asylum or residency to individuals who have provided any sort of terrorism-related support.

The government’s latest available figures for granting asylum or residency to individuals embroiled in terrorist causes are incredibly disturbing, especially since the agency charged with keeping the nation safe, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), appears to downplay the seriousness of the crimes.

QOTD: "The world is heading into an unprecedented monetary deflation——with output and trade falling nearly everywhere. That implosion is already rumbling through Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Japan, the Persian Gulf oil states and countless lesser economies in between. And at the center, of course, is the unraveling of the Great Red Ponzi of China.

In the face of this on-coming economic storm, honest financial markets would have been selling off long ago, and, in fact, would never have approached today’s absurd levels of over-valuation. But financial markets have been hopelessly corrupted by two decades of massive central bank intrusion and falsification of asset prices. Consequently, Wall Street punters and their retainers and cheerleaders cannot see the forest for the trees." --David Stockman

Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of insecure email server wrecked State Department’s post-9/11 security

By Richard Pollock

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct official diplomatic business created many national security problems, but they may pale by comparison with the wreckage she left behind in her department’s main digital information security office.

Harold W. Geisel, the State Department’s acting Inspector General, issued eight scathing audits and investigation reports during Clinton’s tenure, repeatedly warning about worsening problems and growing security weaknesses within the Bureau of Information Resource Management, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.

Geisel’s critical comments about the deficiencies throughout IRM carry additional weight since he was not considered an “independent” IG. Watchdog groups noted Geisel had served as a U.S. Ambassador for Hillary’s husband, President Clinton, and had never been confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

In fact, President Obama did not nominate an IG to the State Department during Clinton’s entire term. It was only in September 2013 that the Senate finally confirmed Geisel’s successor, Steve Linick, who currently occupies the the post.

After Clinton left the State Department in 2013, Linick quickly undertook remedial action to save the IRM. Barely two months after his Senate confirmation, he issued a “management alert” to State Department leadership, warning that IRM’s languishing security deficiencies since 2010 were still there.

RUH ROH: Conservative Rebellion Threatens Key Mitch McConnell Ally Marco Rubio

By Julia Hahn

While Breitbart News has been reporting for months that Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)’s speakership was in jeopardy, the Washington media was stunned on Friday with the historic announcement of Boehner’s resignation.

The anti-leadership sentiment seems to be growing as the Washington Times is now reporting that a top Republican party official, Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere, has called for Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)’s resignation.

The populist, anti-establishment groundswell could spell trouble for the presidential campaign of donor-class darling Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)—who has twice fearlessly ignored voters and risked his political career to advance the goals of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Real Purpose of the Establishment’s 2016 Election Strategy

By Lawrence Sellin

The main objective of the political-media establishment and, in particular, Barack Obama is to prevent any post-election investigation of the rampant corruption in Washington DC.

Both the Democrats and the Republicans want to maintain their standing as permanent political elites, whereby they may continue to treat ordinary Americans as indentured servants and broker the tax revenues for the benefit of themselves and their wealthy donors.

It is clear that the Obamas and Valerie "Rasputin" Jarrett hate the Clintons and do not want to risk "payback time" from a vindictive and ruthless President Hillary.

I KNOW YOU’LL BE SHOCKED: Obamacare seems designed to launder your tax dollars from Feds to... Blue States

By Mytheos Holt

Could the failed Obamacare exchanges have been merely an excuse to direct payola to safely Democratic states? Based on a new report from the Government Accountability Office, and the actions of acting head of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Studies (CMS) Andrew Slavitt, the answer may well be yes.

Let’s start with the report. Americans for Tax Reform summarized its findings:

SYMPHONY OF LIES: Hillary Clinton’s Startlingly Awful Performance on Meet The Press

Hillary Clinton appeared today on Meet the Press and her performance was just as disingenuous and as evasive as you might have predicted.

Chuck Todd introduced Hillary Clinton with the collaborative and sympathetic disclaimer that "there's always conspiracy theories out there... you know?" as if active FBI investigations into the former Secretary of State's activities are conspiracy theories.

Todd began his questions with a clip from Clinton's appearance on Meet The Press is 2008, when she asserted her support for transparency and open government.

I want to have a much more transparent government. And I think we now have the tools to make that happen. I want to have as much information about the way our government operates on the internet. So the people who pay for it, the taxpayers of America can see that.

Hillary's template for evading honest answers followed a simple process:

Why Socialism Always Fails

By Mark J. Perry

Socialism is the Big Lie of the last century. While it promised prosperity, equality, and security, it delivered poverty, misery, and tyranny. Equality was achieved only in the sense that everyone was equal in his or her misery.

In the same way that a Ponzi scheme or chain letter initially succeeds but eventually collapses, socialism may show early signs of success. But any accomplishments quickly fade as the fundamental deficiencies of central planning emerge. It is the initial illusion of success that gives government intervention its pernicious, seductive appeal. In the long run, socialism has always proven to be a formula for tyranny and misery.

A pyramid scheme is ultimately unsustainable because it is based on faulty principles. Likewise, collectivism is unsustainable in the long run because it is a flawed theory. Socialism does not work because it is not consistent with fundamental principles of human behavior. The failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores incentives.

They do not appreciate American history, the American heritage, what the people of this nation have done for themselves, and the rest of the world. It’s easy for a man like Barack Obama, who’s contributed zero to American liberty to go off on his ideological agenda and force his will on the American people because of the failure of the opposition party and the courts to stop him. It’s easy for a pope to come here from Italy, from the Vatican, and quite frankly, lecture us in many respects, and talk down to us in many respects about immigration. We, the most tolerant, giving people on the face of the earth, who sent our own men and women all over the world to fight wars for liberty...”

...what Barack Obama says about we the people, what the pope has said about we the people, doesn’t understand we the people. We are a unique, crucially important people in world history. And we are different. I don’t mean by DNA. I don’t mean by looks. I mean we are different, in terms of our mindset, our psychology, which is built around liberty" --Mark Levin

With the latest FOIA revelations, I am now officially calling on Hillary Clinton to suspend her campaign

Writing at The Wall Street Journal, Kimberley Strassel observes that if Hillary Clinton fails to achieve the presidency, it will not be because of her opponents. It will be due to a 1966 law called the Freedom of Information Act, which has already revealed her illegal and reckless mishandling of State Department emails in which classified documents were co-mingled with side deals concerning her family's so-called charity. And the worst disclosures are, in all likelihood, yet to come.

FOIA requires a complete inventory of all documents withheld by the targeted agency along with descriptions of each; this file is called a Vaughn Index and on Monday the State Department reluctantly handed over its version to a federal court.

The email descriptions are stunning:

• An email thread between then-Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and a Clinton Foundation board member about the secretary of state’s planned trip to Africa.

• Emails between Ms. Mills and foundation staff discussing “invitations to foreign business executives to attend the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative.”

• Many undisclosed email thread in which State Department officials talk with Clinton Foundation officials about Bill Clinton speeches and Bill Clinton travel, including to events in North Korea and the Congo.

• At least 14 separate emails threads regarding Benghazi.

Pope Francis vs. Pope John Paul II

On 27 January 1979, Pope John Paul II offered the following plea to the Clergy:

You are priests and religious; you are not social or political leaders or officials of a temporal power. For this reason I repeat to you "Let us not be under the illusion that we are serving the Gospel if we `dilute' our charism through an exaggerated interest in the wide field of temporal problems." (Address to the Clergy of Rome, 9 November 1978)...

...Let us not forget that temporal leadership can easily be a source of division, while the priest must be a sign and agent of unity and brotherhood. Secular functions are the specific field of action of laymen, who have to improve temporal matters with the Christian spirit.

This statement stands in stark contrast to the exhortations of the current, radical Marxist Pope who has excoriated capitalism as "the dung of the devil".

It is not capitalism, but Marxism -- the ideology of both Pope Francis and Barack Obama -- that has resulted in more mass murder (138 million in the 20th century alone according to academics) and economic misery (the economic "failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores [human] incentives.") than any political system in history.

Paraphrasing the EIB Network, each of Pope Francis's encyclicals are often an unvarnished paen of some facet of Marxism, referring to "unfettered capitalism" and "global warming". He has gone so far as to circulate a draft of a major environmental treatise that lays the blame for 'the bulk of global warming' on humans.

In fact, a major peer-reviewed study proves that the majority of scientists in the field are skeptical that global warming is a crisis and, further, that humans are to blame.

In fact, meteorologist Joe Bastardi recently published two charts and begged the Pontiff to review them.

One thing is clear: Barack Obama has found a soulmate in Pope Francis and the combined damage these men can do to Western civilization is substantial.

No Refugees, No Terrorism

By Daniel Greenfield

Jordan’s Queen Rania told Europeans that they could either take in the Syrian refugees that her country doesn’t want or the refugees would turn to terrorism. And what if these “refugees,” like so many of the other Muslims who had settled in Europe over the years, decide that they like terrorism anyway? 

A tenth of London approves of ISIS now. Support for the Islamic State among the younger population in the UK, where Muslim demographics predominate, reaches as high as 14 percent.

What will it look like when tens of thousands of Muslims from the homeland of the Islamic State are added to the population? How much support will there be for Islamic terrorism a decade from now when the mass Muslim migration has fundamentally reshaped the UK’s religious demographics?

Mark Levin Warns Republican Establishment: Don’t Even Think About Kevin McCarthy as Speaker

By Julia Hahn

Popular talk radio host and best-selling author Mark Levin is warning Republicans in Washington: don’t replace outgoing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) with Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

Levin’s a tirelessly warrior against Speaker Boehner and the Washington establishment. “Kevin McCarthy is Eric Cantor with 10 less IQ points,” Levin declares in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

The radio star adds Republicans must learn their lesson and not repeat the mistakes they made following Eric Cantor’s historic fall from power—namely that Republicans must replace Boehner with a “principled conservative.”

Levin explained that with the resounding defeat of the former-House Majority Leader, conservative voters made their voices heard and sent a clear message to the Republican establishment. Washington Republicans, however, refused to get the message.

“The Republican establishment never learned their lesson after Cantor… They replaced Cantor with McCarthy, who is a wheeler and dealer—he is not a principled conservative… My concern now is that they will do the same thing again,” Levin said.

CRUZ DESTROYS JOHN BOEHNER: Disgraced Speaker Worked Deal to Fund Planned Parenthood With Pelosi

In all seriousness, Ted Cruz just unleashed several quotes of the year as the bumbling, incoherent, chain smoking loser known as John Boehner has decided to collect his long-anticipated 8-figure retirement bonus by transferring to a lobbying role on K Street.

Hours after House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would be resigning from Congress, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz added fuel to the fire by saying he’d heard “early reports” that Boehner cut a deal with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi to continue funding some of President Barack Obama’s most controversial measures.

“I will say, the early reports are discouraging. If it is correct that the speaker, before he resigns, has cut a deal with Nancy Pelosi to fund the Obama administration for the rest of its tenure, to fund Obamacare, to fund executive amnesty, to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund implementation of this Iran deal — and then, presumably, to land in a cushy K Street job after joining with the Democrats to implement all of President Obama’s priorities, that is not the behavior one would expect of a Republican speaker of the House,” Cruz told reporters at the conservative Values Voter Summit in Washington.

You want to know how much each of you terrifies Washington? Yesterday, John Boehner was speaker of the House,” Cruz said. “You come to town and somehow that changes. My only request is, can you come more often?”

...“If you vote for Hillary, you are voting for Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon,” Cruz said. “If you vote for me, under no circumstances will a theocratic country led by an ayatollah that chats death to America, will Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. And if the ayatollah doesn’t understand that, we may have to introduce him to the 72 virgins.”

GAME OVER: Latest Email Drop Reveals Hillary Committed Perjury

The consistently excellent John Hayward relays word that new emails between SECSTATE Hillary Clinton and CENTCOM's David Petraeus have been discovered. This revelation completely contradicts her statement under oath that she had revealed all of her official correspondence and deleted only her yoga workouts and Chelsea's plastic surgery wedding plans.

What the Associated Press reported on Friday afternoon sounds like the “game over” moment Democrats have been fearing since the Clinton email scandal came to a boil:

The Obama administration has discovered a chain of emails that Hillary Rodham Clinton failed to turn over when she provided what she said was the full record of work-related correspondence as secretary of state, officials said Friday, adding to the growing questions related to the Democratic presidential front-runner’s unusual usage of a private email account and server while in government.

The messages were exchanged with [now] retired Gen. David Petraeus when he headed the military’s U.S. Central Command, responsible for running the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan [and] their existence challenges Clinton’s claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account.

Hillary Clinton didn’t just “claim” she turned over all of her work-related emails. She signed a sworn statement to that effect in August, under penalty of perjury, and submitted it to a federal court. It’s the same statement her top aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills refused to sign...

QOTD: "Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton greenlighted paperwork that changed her top aide Huma Abedin’s job status to “special government employee” — a classification that allowed Abedin to work for an outside consulting firm and the Clinton Foundation at the same time she was advising Clinton at State...

...the president of the outside company where Abedin ended up working later that year, Doug Band of Teneo, had contacted her in April 2012, asking her for help getting a client appointed to a post on the President’s Global Development Council... In the email, he made sure Abedin knew that the woman, Judith Rodin, president of The Rockefeller Foundation, was also a big supporter of the Clinton Foundation — another place Abedin would collect a paycheck after her SGE status was approved...

[But] Clinton, in an interview with MSNBC on Sept. 4, said she "was not directly involved" with Abedin's job arrangement." --Rachel Bade

The Left’s Climate Fraud Exploded in Two Simple Charts

Over at Patriot Post, meteorologist Joe Bastardi has a simple request for Pope Francis. Before the Pontiff continues his campaign to destroy capitalism -- the single system which has inarguably brought more wealth to more people than any other economic framework in world history -- Bastardi simply asks that he examine two simple graphs:

1.) Human progress: The amount of people, life expectancy and global personal GDP. These “hockey sticks” show that, since the advent of fossil fuels, the human condition has improved immensely.
