IG REPORT CONFIRMS OBAMA LIED ABOUT KNOWLEDGE OF HILLARY’S EMAILS

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

 

INSPECTOR GENERAL’S  REPORT CONFIRMS OBAMA LIED ABOUT HILLARY’S EMAIL
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
 – The Washington Times – Friday, June 15, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

One aspect of the Inspector Generals’ report on the FBI handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has been a bit overshadowed by the media. The fact that President Barack Obama lied to the American people when he claimed he only learned of Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized, non-secure, non-governmental email server while she was Secretary of State.

In March 2015, when the Clinton email scandal was first breaking, CBS White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Obama about his knowledge of the matter:

Plante: Mr. President, when did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was secretary of state?

Obama: The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.

But, that’s just not so.

Sean Davis, at The Federalist, saw the footnotes showing Obama’s involvement. “FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account,” the report says in a footnote on page 89. “Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.”

I interviewed Davis about this item on WMAL in Washington yesterday:

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION HARM

Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

Diversity and Inclusion Harm

In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians and race hustlers, it’s not long before the magical words “diversity” and “inclusiveness” drop from their lips. Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diversity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas. We’re told how it’s doing so in science, in an article by Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, titled “How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences” (tinyurl.com/y9g8k9ne).

Mac Donald says that identity politics has already taken over the humanities and social sciences on American campuses. Waiting in the wings for a similar takeover are the STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math. In the eyes of the diversity and inclusiveness czars, the STEM fields don’t have a pleasing mixture of blacks, Hispanics and women. The effort to get this “pleasing mix” is doing great damage to how science is taught and evaluated, threatening innovation and American competitiveness.

Universities and other institutions have started watering down standards and requirements in order to attract more minorities and women. Some of the arguments for doing so border on insanity. A math education professor at the University of Illinois wrote that “mathematics itself operates as Whiteness.” She says that the ability to solve algebra and geometry problems perpetuates “unearned privilege” among whites. A professor at Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education published an article in a peer-reviewed journal positing that academic rigor is a “dirty deed” that upholds “white male heterosexual privilege,” adding that “scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing.”

ANOTHER NYC PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPPORTING TERRORISM

Monday, June 11th, 2018

 

ANOTHER NEW YORK CITY PUBLIC SCHOOL SUPPORTING TERRORISM

June 11. 2018
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  Jewish students and teachers at Midwood reported feeling intimidated and threatened at seeing such widespread support for an organization that promotes anti-Semitism and violence against Jews as well as idolizes genocide.“I was paralyzed by shock and fear,” remarked one teacher. “I simply couldn’t believe this was happening at public high school in the United States. My mother is a Holocaust survivor who fled to this country to escape this very same poison which resulted in the murder of our entire family.”

Another teacher commented, “I don’t believe these students are any more aware of the anti-Semitic canard they’re espousing than were the innocent youth recruited by Hitler.”

In what appears to be an alarming trend growing among NYC public schools, students attending Brooklyn’s Midwood High School were recently used as instruments to advocate terrorism when they were targeted for the distribution of Hamas propaganda claiming to pay tribute to the “Palestinian victims of violence in Gaza.”

On May 23, 2018 following a related incident previously reported at The Beacon School in Manhattan, large numbers of Midwood students donned the Palestinian black and white chequered keffiyeh on their heads as well as scarves around their necks displaying the colors of the Palestinian flag which were boldly inscribed with the word “Palestine.”

 – The Washington Times – Tuesday, May 15, 2018
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  The Democratic Socialists of America reports that membership has grown from about 5,000 to 35,000 since the 2016 elections. The number of chapters has swelled from 40 to 181.

Cultural influence has matched political power.

Newspapers and magazines published paeans to Marx leading up to his 200th birthday on May 5. A New York Times op-ed exclaimed, “Happy birthday, Karl Marx. You were right!” Teen Vogue informed its adolescent readership, “The communist scholar’s ideas are more prevalent than you might realize.”

You would think any political theory that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people would have been discredited by now, but socialism is back in style.

The bicentennial of Karl Marx’s birth has coincided with a groundswell of support for the communist theorist’s ideas. Dozens of Democrats running for local office have embraced the socialist label, and national party leaders are advocating bigger government as they jockey for position on the left wing of the party.

Marion Smith, executive director of the nonpartisan Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, said both parties should be able to get behind opposition to Marxism.

“It’s important that neither of America’s two major parties embrace the failed ideology of communism,” Mr. Smith said. “We have 100 years of proof — Marxism doesn’t work.”

REPEALING DODD FRANK

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

 

THE WEEKLY STANDARD

Regulatory Release

May 24, 2018
The partial repeal of Dodd Frank could have gone farther, but it’s a good start.

In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and President Obama signed it into law. The legislation, more than 2,000 pages long, imposed cumbersome regulations on financial institutions, which the bill’s authors took to be responsible for the 2008 financial crisis and the consequent recession. The law also established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, an advocacy agency for consumers that, to no one’s surprise, quickly turned into a Naderite anti-corporation attack dog.

Complicated laws passed in the middle of a crisis are guaranteed to make things worse in the long run, and so Dodd-Frank proved. The Democrats, who controlled both House and Senate in 2010, took the blinkered view that the financial crisis had come about exclusively thanks to the unregulated excesses of the private-sector financial industry; regulating that industry was, for them, the only rational response. The law thus deprived the market of liquidity in the middle of a recession—with predictable results.

The Democrats ignored two important points. First, the role of the federal government itself: Government-backed mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae—then as now boasting powerful allies in Congress—encouraged precisely the sort of risky and foolish loans that led directly to the housing-market collapse and attendant financial meltdown. Second, what many of the investment banks did was already illegal: “cooking the books,” to use the popular term. To that extent, it was an enforcement problem, not a regulatory one. Greater regulation of investment banks largely missed the point—though it allowed powerful Democrats in Congress to blame someone other than themselves for the crisis. (The bill’s authors, Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Barney Frank of Massachusetts, both had a long history of encouraging Fannie and Freddie’s worst practices.) One of the law’s further follies is that it shackled small and mid-sized banks with the same provisions despite the fact that they had nothing to do with the financial crisis.
