NTI.org reported:

The standoff over Russia’s incursion in Ukraine has not prevented Moscow from verifying the elimination of 18 U.S. missile sites, the Associated Press reports.

Russian experts visited Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana on April 9 to ensure that each intercontinental ballistic missile firing site had been loaded with soil and crushed rock, and that their entryways could no longer seal shut. Their trip was one of eight annual checks Moscow can conduct at U.S. installations under the New START arms control treaty.

“Overall, we felt the process went smoothly,” said Col. Marne Deranger, vice commander of Malmstrom’s 341st Missile Wing.

The base learned of the planned visit one day before Russian specialists arrived in the company of staffers from the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

“From the time we started [the inspection], we had to be completed in 12 hours,” Richard Bialczak, a treaty compliance specialist for the missile unit, said in released comments. “We were able to get all 18.”

Bialczak added that the trip was the first of its type at the base, which hosts one-third of the U.S. land-based strategic missile fleet. The others are located at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming.

 

 

Figures. Bloomberg’s Latest Gun Ad Shows They Don’t Even Know How Guns Work

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 10:23 AM

The image above was placed on the newly acquired Everytown for Gun Safety Facebook page by Bloomberg’s newest anti-gun group.
Does anyone notice anything a little bit off with the photo below?
bloomberg bullet
The new ad includes the casing on the bullet after it is fired – when it is either ejected from the gun or stays in the chamber.
Oops.

Guns Saves Lives reported:

The page was originally snatched up by pro-gun group Gun Rights Across America, but due to some sort of legal concerns, the page was taken down and acquired by the Bloomberg group (we’re still waiting on official word from GRAA on how that all went down).

Everytown for Gun Safety is the third financially backed anti-gun group by Bloomberg (the first two being Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense).

Bloomberg calls the new initiative a “grassroots” organization, but it is controlled and funded at the national level by Bloomberg, who is using $50 million of his own money to seed the operation (sounds just like a grassroots organization to me).

 

 

MEDIA MATTERS Silent on CBS News Collaboration as Attkisson Attacks Continue

The Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America has assiduously avoided any comment on the statement by former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday that Media Matters helped produce news reports for her at CBS News before the group turned on her in the wake of her reports critical of the Obama administration.

In statements to the media, reports posted on the Media Matters Web site and in an email to Attkisson by Chairman David Brock all in response to the Attkisson CNN interview no mention is made at all of the group working with Attkisson to produce news reports for CBS News.

Attkisson said to CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday:

“Media Matters, as my understanding, is a far left blog group that I think holds itself out to be sort of an independent watchdog group. And yes, they clearly targeted me at some point. They used to work with me on stories and tried to help me produce my stories, and at some point –“

Media Matters has taken issue with Attkisson’s speculation in the CNN interview that Media Matters was paid by donors to single her out for attack. Media Matters denies that it was paid to target Attkisson.

Fair enough, but Media Matters’ reason for being is to protect the Democratic Party from investigative reporting. Attacking reporters and media outlets who investigate Democrats is what it is paid by its donors to do. The question that ought to be asked is whether Media Matters is creating the news with the media it supposedly holds accountable.

So far there is silence on this from Media Matters. Brock’s email to Attkisson was given to his fellow travelers at Talking Points Memo the day after its editor and publisher Josh Marshall published a sexist attack on Attkisson in which he accused her of being ‘gaslight crazy,’ thereby giving Brock’s seal of approval on TPM’s misogynist sliming of Attkisson.

Media Matters other statements and attacks on Attkisson in reaction to her CNN interview that ignore her claim that Media Matters helped produce news reports with her for CBS News can be found here, here, here, and here.

This is an issue that needs explanations from all parties. CBS News, Sharyl Attkisson and Media Matters should reveal which reports were tainted by the concealed involvement of the Democratic Party hit squad. Other media outlets should also come clean as to whether they collaborate with Media Matters on news reports.

 

IRS Workers Who Did Not Pay Taxes Received Bonuses, Extra Time Off and Raises (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 9:13 AM

Barack Obama,

IRS workers who did not pay their taxes received bonuses, extra time off and raises.
ABC reported:

1,150 IRS employees received bonuses even though they owed back taxes.
The AP reported:

The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1 million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said Tuesday.

More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012.

George’s report said the bonus program doesn’t violate federal regulations, but it’s inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws.

“These awards are designed to recognize and reward IRS employees for a job well done, and that is appropriate, because the IRS should encourage good performance,” George said. “However, while not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the integrity of the system of tax administration.”

Other examples of misconduct by workers getting bonuses included misusing government credit cards for travel, drug use, violent threats and fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits.

 

Christian Nursery School Worker Fired After Refusing to Read Gay Stories to Children (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 8:47 AM

A Christian nursery school worker says she was fired after she refused to read gay stories to children.

Sarah Mbuyi was also accused of harassing a fellow worker after she gave a lesbian a Bible.
Telegraph reported:

A Christian nursery worker is taking her former employers to court claiming she was sacked for her beliefs after refusing to read stories about gay couples to children.

Sarah Mbuyi says she was dismissed due to religious discrimination, having also been accused of “harassing” a lesbian colleague to whom she gave a Bible when she was recovering from an accident.

The case, lodged at an employment tribunal, comes amid growing concerns among some Christians that religious beliefs are being “outlawed” in the workplace. A Christian group backing the case says it is an example of believers being “robbed” of the freedom to express views.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, has warned that “militant atheists” are attempting to impose “politically correct intolerance” on others. “We’re a Christian nation,” he insisted.

 

Obama Administration Accused of Switching Sides – Arming Islamists Who Stormed US Consulate in Benghazi

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 8:23 AM

The attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi came in two waves on the night of 9-11.
Four Americans were murdered in a coordinated attack by reportedly 400 Islamists.
It was a highly coordinated attack.

The bloodstained walls reveal that the US officials were dragged to their death.

The Obama administration was accused yesterday of switching sides in the War on Terror and of funding Islamists who stormed the US consulate in Benghazi.
The Daily Mail reported:

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.

‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.
‘Remember, these weapons that came into Benghazi were permitted to enter by our armed forces who were blockading the approaches from air and sea,’ Lopez claimed. ‘They were permitted to come in. … [They] knew these weapons were coming in, and that was allowed.

‘The intelligence community was part of that, the Department of State was part of that, and certainly that means that the top leadership of the United States, our national security leadership, and potentially Congress – if they were briefed on this – also knew about this.’

The weapons were intended for Gaddafi but allowed by the U.S. to flow to his Islamist opposition.

‘The White House and senior Congressional members,’ the group wrote in an interim report released Tuesday, ‘deliberately and knowingly pursued a policy that provided material support to terrorist organizations in order to topple a ruler [Muammar Gaddafi] who had been working closely with the West actively to suppress al-Qaeda.’

‘Some look at it as treason,’ said Wayne Simmons, a former CIA officer who participated in the commission’s research.

Retired Rear Admiral Chuck Kubic, another commission member, told reporters Tuesday that those weapons are now ‘all in Syria.’

‘Gaddafi wasn’t a good guy, but he was being marginalized,’ Kubic recalled. ‘Gaddafi actually offered to abdicate’ shortly after the beginning of a 2011 rebellion.

‘But the U.S. ignored his calls for a truce,’ the commission wrote, ultimately backing the horse that would later help kill a U.S. ambassador.

Kubic said that the effort at truce talks fell apart when the White House declined to let the Pentagon pursue it seriously.

 

Will IRS Revoke Media Matters Tax-Exempt Status? Chairman Brock is ‘Democratic Political Activist’

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, 4:05 AM

Guest post by Kristinn Taylor

The IRS is demonstrating vigor in enforcing the rules for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations against influencing elections with its recent revocation of the tax-exempt status of the conservative Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty for anti-Hillary Clinton and John Kerry articles posted to the group’s Web site.

Perhaps the non-partisan Internal Revenue Service will balance the scales of justice by revoking the tax-exempt status of the Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America.

david brock twitter

The IRS won’t have to look far for evidence. The Twitter profile of Media Matters Chairman David Brock would be a good place to start. There Brock proudly identifies himself as a “Democratic political activist.”

Brock uses the Twitter account to conduct Media Matters business as demonstrated in this tweet cc’d to former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson on Tuesday.

A look at Tuesday evening’s home page for Media Matters shows several articles attacking and defending potential 2016 presidential candidates. Curiously, Democrat Hillary Clinton is defended in several articles while Republican Ben Carson is attacked.

Fox’s Erick Erickson: Hillary Clinton “Is Going To Be Old” In 2016, “I Don’t Know How Far Back They Can Pull Her Face”

The Hypocrisy Of Peggy Noonan’s “Modest” Attack On Hillary Clinton

Fox Surprised Public Isn’t Buying Its Efforts To Smear Clinton

6 Things You Should Know About Conservative Media Darling Dr. Ben Carson

Several of the recent articles defending Hillary Clinton are listed under the ‘Elections’ page at Media Matters which ought make it pretty clear to the IRS who Media Matters is supporting for the 2016 presidential election.

 

OUTRAGEOUS! TSA Gives 2 & 6 Year-Old Children a FULL BODY Rubdown (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, 10:56 PM

Outrageous!
TSA agents were recently filmed giving a patdown to a 6 year-old and her 2 year-old brother.
The Daily Mail reported:

A video has surfaced online showing what appears to be a pair of Transportation Security Administration officers giving two young children full-body patdowns at an airport.

The one-and-a-half minute was shared by user khanzahir100 on YouTube last Friday.

In the description of the video, a man wrote that two TSA agents subjected his two-year-old son and six-year-old daughter to patdowns because he had been selected ‘as usual’ for a security check due to his name.

RISE OF THE SOCIALIST LEFT, AGAIN: Hitler’s Birthday Celebrated in Italian Town

Hitler birthday poster in Milan (Il Messaggero)

Hitler’s Nazis murdered over 20 Million people but that horrendous fact doesn’t seem to be preventing a growth in the National Socialist ideology in Italy.

According to an article on The Local, supporters of Nazism celebrated Hitler’s birthday in Milan by decorating the Italian town with pro-Hitler posters:

Supporters of Adolf Hitler in Milan emblazoned the city with posters of the German dictator over the weekend in honour of his 125th birthday.

The posters were put up overnight on Saturday by members of the National Socialist Workers Movement, a neo-Nazi group that originated in the Lombardy town of Varese in 2002.

In comments published in Il Messaggero, the group said the posters were a “simple gesture” to mark the birthday of “the greatest leader that Europe has known so far”. Hitler was born on April 20th 1889.

“Every year, we feel it’s important to pay respect to a man who knew how to take a nation’s hand and guide it to rescue, until its tragic end.
