Pam Geller, “HUGE AFDI FREE SPEECH VICTORY IN PHILLY!
“Brilliant news, freedom lovers. We won a huge free speech victory in Philadelphia. Your First Amendment rights were in jeopardy, so we fought. And we won!
“The court granted our legal team’s motion for a preliminary injunction holding that the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s (SEPTA) refusal to run our “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s In the Qur’an” advertisement on its advertising space violated the First Amendment. The judge held that SEPTA was refusing to run our ads because they didn’t like our message — and even in Obama’s America, that’s illegal.
“Thanks again to our legal warriors, David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center.
“SEPTA rejected the ad, claiming that it ‘tends to disparage or ridicule any person or group of persons on the basis of race, religious belief, age, sex, alienage, national origin, sickness or disability.’
“But today, a federal judge agreeed with all of our arguments, ruling that SEPTA’s speech restriction was content- and viewpoint-based in violation of the First Amendment.
“This is great victory not only for AFDI, but for all freedom-loving Americans who cherish the First Amendment!
“At AFDI, we are not just raising awareness of the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat with our campaigns; we’re also setting legal precedents that have implications that can’t be understated: for decades, the left has been chipping away at our First Amendment rights. Without most Americans realizing, they’ve placed almost as many hedges and restrictions around the First Amendment as they have the Second.
“This has to stop. . .”

Erick Erickson, Red State: “Tom Cotton: The Most Powerful Man in Washington”
“Tom Cotton (R-AR) is the junior senator from Arkansas. In fact, Cotton has only been in the Senate for two months. He spent one term in the House of Representatives before making the leap to the upper house. Prior to his stint in elected politics, Cotton was a soldier in the Iraq War. He is now the most powerful man in Washington.
“Cotton rounded up 46 other Republican senators in Washington to sign a letter to Iran. That letter announced that no deal between President Obama and Iran would ever make it through the United States Senate. The constitution requires a two-thirds vote for any treaty to be ratified. An Iranian deal would not get a majority vote, let alone a two-thirds vote.
“The outrage from Democrats was immediate. On twitter, the hashtag “47traitors” exploded. More than 100,000 people signed a petition demanding the 47 senators be arrested for treason. Chris Matthews, the Walter Winchel of MSNBC, yelled at his viewers accusing the senators of violating the Logan Act. The sound bite got picked up and parroted by talking heads who needed a point and had none of their own.
“The Logan Act is a law enacted in 1799 by President John Adams. It prohibits citizens from engaging foreign powers in contravention of the United States. Not a single person has ever been convicted of violating the Logan Act. Only one person, in 1803, was ever indicted under the Logan Act. The government is exempt from the law, obviously, and the State Department determined in 1975 that Congress, as a branch of government, was exempt from the Logan Act.
“The rhetoric of the left has been farcical. . .”
Kimberley Strassel, WSJ: “Behind the GOP’s Backbench Revolt”
“Jim Jordan’s Freedom Caucus wants the House to go big on tax reform and corporate welfare.”
“‘Our goal is to get to a ‘yes’ vote, not to divide the party. It’s to fight for all those voters who are getting left out of Washington. And to do it in as smart and as aggressive a way as we can that brings our team together.”
“That’s Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan talking, though Speaker John Boehner might wonder. Ten weeks into their huge new majority, Republicans are struggling to cobble together 218 votes for anything that matters. The Boehner leadership team puts the blame squarely on some 30 to 50 conservative members, who are variously described as crazy, or divorced from political reality, or unwilling to compromise. Or all of the above.
“In the wake of last week’s immigration spectacle—in which Mr. Boehner was forced to fund Homeland Security with largely Democratic votes—I thought I’d ask Mr. Jordan to explain the thinking from the backbench. A favorite of conservative groups for his limited-government stands, he also has some credibility among the wider conference for his willingness at key times to be a team player. His position as chairman of the newly founded Freedom Caucus—what he calls an “agile, active group” of about 40 members devoted to conservative principles—has made him the de facto leader of the dissenters.
“Mr. Jordan does seem to want to get to yes, though the defining feature of his group is frustration with a lack of Republican strategy and message. That comes out in Mr. Jordan’s view of the recent immigration debacle, a mess he traces to December. That was when Republicans chose to fund all of government except Homeland Security—in protest of President Obama’s lawless immigration order. “We told the voters this was going to be the defining moment, we said we were going to stop money for the president’s action,” says Mr. Jordan. ‘And you just can’t build up that moment, and then on February 27 say we aren’t going to do it.’ . . .”
Ariane de Vogue, CNN: “Obamacare at the Supreme Court: Justices again divided over landmark health law”
The states most invested in OCare: Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, Maine, Montana . . . the Millennials are generally missing. . .
“Washington (CNN) The future of health care in America is on the table — and in serious jeopardy — Wednesday morning in the Supreme Court.
“After more than an hour of arguments, the Supreme Court seemed divided in a case concerning what Congress meant in one very specific four-word clause of the Affordable Care Act with respect to who is eligible for subsidies provided by the federal government to help people buy health insurance.
“If the Court ultimately rules against the Obama administration, more than 5 million individuals will no longer be eligible for the subsidies, shaking up the insurance market and potentially dealing the law a fatal blow. A decision likely will not be announced by the Supreme Court until May or June.
“All eyes were on Chief Justice John Roberts — who surprised many in 2012 when he voted to uphold the law — he said next to nothing, in a clear strategy not to tip his hand either way.
“Roberts, who’s usually a very active participant in oral arguments, said almost nothing for an hour and a half,” said CNN’s Supreme Court analyst Jeffrey Toobin, who attended the arguments. “(Roberts) was so much a focus of attention because of his vote in the first Obamacare case in 2012 that he somehow didn’t want to give people a preview of how he was thinking in this case. … He said barely a word.”
Seung Kim, Politico: “Loretta Lynch nomination a cliffhanger”
“Just days before her nomination as attorney general goes to the Senate floor, Loretta Lynch is stubbornly stuck right around 50 votes — suggesting a confirmation fight the Obama administration once seemed certain to win with relative ease will go down to the wire.
“Barring an 11th-hour surprise, Lynch is likely to be confirmed. But with four GOP senators currently backing her along with unanimous support from Senate Democrats, Lynch would secure the bare minimum required to be installed as the nation’s top cop – as long as senators hauled in Vice President Joe Biden to break a tie.
“Several Republican senators who could have been potential “yes” votes are signaling ahead of the confirmation vote that that they will instead vote against her. The overwhelming bloc of opposition from Republicans stems from President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration, and Lynch’s confirmation is also plagued with remnants of congressional Republicans’ toxic relations with current attorney general Eric Holder. . .”
Joel Pollak, Big Govt: “Ferguson: A Murderous Mob Incited by Holder and Obama”
“Two police officers in Ferguson, MO were shot at a protest early Thursday against alleged racism in the department and the city itself. It was not enough that the chief of police had just resigned. It was not enough that a local judge had quit. It was not enough that the Department of Justice had exonerated former officer Darren Wilson. No–the mob, told by President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder that Ferguson was still guilty of racism, wanted “justice.”
“The violence is the direct result of incitement by the federal government on the basis of trumped-up accusations, based on the faulty notion that a city that enforces traffic tickets vigorously as a means of raising revenue is inherently racist. (By that standard, my own ultra-progressive town of Santa Monica, California would be akin to a Ku Klux Klan headquarters.) . . .”
Matthew Boyle, Big Govt: “Exclusive — Scott Walker to Speak in Colorado at June ‘Western Conservative Summit’”
“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate, will speak at the Western Conservative Summit in June in Denver, Colorado, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.
“Governor Walker looks forward to addressing the Western Conservative Summit and sharing the big, bold, conservative reforms he has championed in Wisconsin to achieve a more efficient and accountable government,” AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Walker’s Our American Revival PAC, tells Breitbart News. “The governor will address his current effort through Our American Revival to develop a positive issue-based agenda that builds on these reforms as a model for the rest of the country.”
“‘The invisible GOP primary has Walker in front right now, so we’re delighted he can join the other 2016 contenders who will be addressing our 4000 delegates from 30 states,’ John Andrews, the chairman of the Summit, added.
“The event, which will take place from June 26 through June 28 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, already has more than 20 major speakers, 30 workshops and 100 exhibitors confirmed and up to 5,000 delegates are expected to attend. It has been sponsored annually since 2010 by Centennial Institute and Colorado Christian University and has shaped up as a major summer conference for conservatives, Tea Partiers and freedom advocates.
“Already-confirmed potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates include Dr. Ben Carson, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
“Other major conservatives confirmed to speak at this time include David Horowitz, Hugh Hewitt, Katie Pavlich, Guy Benson, Mary Katharine Ham and Nick Adams. . .”
Matthew Boyle, Big Govt: “Exclusive–Tom Cotton Stands Firm against Left, Media: Obama ‘Paving the Path’ for Iran to Get Nuke”
“Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) unloaded on President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State and likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and the mainstream media over the Iranian nuclear deal—and the letter of 47 Republican senators he led about it—in an exclusive interview on Thursday morning with Breitbart News.
“Cotton, a U.S. Army veteran, is the youngest member of the U.S. Senate (age 37) and defeated sitting Democrat Mark Pryor last election. This first big battle has created a firestorm that the bold southern conservative is handily winning against the entire political establishment.
“‘Any claim whether from the president, his cabinet members or from the media for that matter that this [the letter] is unprecedented is wrong but more importantly what’s really unprecedented is an American president negotiating a nuclear weapons deal with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism and not seeking congressional approval for it,’ Cotton said when asked about the vitriol spewing from the left about his letter. . .”
Marc Thiessen, WaPo: “Republicans’ letter to Iran is far from unprecedented”
“The Obama administration has excoriated Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and 46 other Republicans for writing to Iran’s leaders informing them of the Senate’s constitutional role in approving international agreements. Vice President Joe Biden went so far as to declare that “In 36 years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which senators wrote directly to advise another country — much less a longtime foreign adversary — that the president does not have the constitutional authority to reach a meaningful understanding with them.”
“Really? Biden has an awfully short memory. . .”
Sarah Parvini, LATimes: “Q&A: Why Utah wants to revive execution by firing squad”
“Utah is poised to bring back death by firing squad.
“Republican state Rep. Paul Ray introduced the legislation in December, calling firing squads ‘the most humane’ method out of all options. The legislation, which passed the state Senate on Tuesday, would require the use of a firing squad if lethal injection drugs are unavailable.
“The bill now goes to Republican Gov. Gary Herbert, who has not said whether he will sign it.
Ray said he began drafting the bill last March, before a host of executions by lethal injection last year in Oklahoma, Arizona and Ohio in which inmates appeared to writhe in pain and gasp for air. Witnesses said a condemned murderer in Arizona snorted and struggled for breath for more than 90 minutes before he died.
“Those executions have stirred debate about allowing alternative methods. This, coupled with a national shortage of the anesthetic that is part of the three-drug cocktail used in lethal injections, has thrown the use of capital punishment into disarray.
“Here’s a look at the some of the questions surrounding Utah’s proposal. . .”
Jonah Goldberg, NRO: “Jeb Bush Is Not the GOP’s Ideal ‘Change’ Candidate”
“He’s the only Republican candidate who would make the Clinton name an asset for Hillary, not a liability. Let us now make the case for Jeb skepticism.
“Jeb Bush is a fine man. He’s a conservative. He was a highly effective conservative governor. He would probably make a fine president. And, if he were the Republican nominee, there would be precious few good arguments — from a conservative perspective — for sitting out the election, never mind voting for the Democratic nominee (whoever she may be).
“If the choice comes down to Bush versus Clinton, the conservative cause would be advanced by another Bush presidency far more than it would be advanced by another Clinton presidency. That’s just my opinion, but I consider it as obvious as noting that water is wet. But will it come down to that? And, more importantly, should it? Let’s start with the first question. It’s definitely possible that Bush will be the nominee. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/415341/jeb-bush-not-gops-ideal-change-candidate-jonah-goldberg

Victor Davis Hanson, NRO: “Why the E-Gate Epidemic?
“From Petraeus to Hillary, public servants have been trying to manipulate the historical record in their favor. Former CIA director David Petraeus plea-bargained to a misdemeanor count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material after having given classified government information to his one-time mistress, Paula Broadwell. How was Petraeus’s transgression uncovered? By exposure of a non-government e-mail account that he had set up to communicate with Broadwell free of CIA scrutiny. After a series of Democratic scandals in the New York state legislature, Governor Andrew Cuomo is instituting a policy to have the e-mails of state employees automatically deleted after 90 days. Apparently, Cuomo did not want e-trails of politicians’ communications.
“Meanwhile, the former speaker of the New York state assembly, Sheldon Silver, faces charges of corruption and was forced by subpoena to turn over computer correspondence. Under the Cuomo plan, a politician like Silver could delay and obfuscate for three months, and then safely assume that almost all of his communications had safely vanished — in a fashion that pre-e-mail politicians could never have imagined.
“In December 2012, shortly after the re-election of Barack Obama, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson quietly stepped down without much public notice. Jackson, in apparent violation of the law, had been under federal investigation for fabricating a phony e-mail persona, “Richard Windsor.” Jackson, using the Windsor persona, communicated in a way that allowed her to skirt federal record-keeping laws. But Jackson not only wished to exchange e-mail beneath the radar of the federal government that employed her, she also wanted to create an alias that might weigh in favorably on her own agency’s policies. In surreal fashion, Jackson’s self-created Windsor also received an award from the EPA for meritorious service — perhaps the first case of a bureaucrat rewarding her own electronic alter ego.
“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now trying to explain away her own e-mail scandal. During her tenure, she may have broken federal laws by creating several personal e-mail accounts on her own private server. . .” http://www.nationalreview.com/article/415267/why-e-gate-epidemic-victor-davis-hanson
Roger Simon, PJM: “Free Guccifer!”
“Social media were burning up Wednesday night with questions about how to finally get ahold of the myriad missing (deleted or otherwise) emails of Hillary Clinton, not to mention missives from her pals Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, before the hard drive went to that great recycling center in the sky. Even the location of the server was up for grabs. Was it at the Chappaqua Clinton manse? If so, would there be a sudden fire or flood? Better move fast.
Then word came that, according to one Vinny Troia, CEO of an IT outfit called Night Lion Security that does, among other things, “ethical hacking,” that the server’s IP was showing it was located at a Manhattan office building. Who knew?
Never mind. What we don’t need now is “ethical hacking.” It’s too late for that. The AP may be suing the State Department, but at the rate these things happen, every government hard drive from here to San Diego could be at the bottom of the Mariana Trench before there’s even a deposition taken. We need the real deal. Someone who can get it done now. We need — Guccifer!
Trouble is, the dude’s languishing in a Bucharest prison. But to recapitulate, if there’s someone who can get into a Clinton server, Guccifer (aka Marc-Lehel Lazar) is the man.
Also – Roger Simon, PJM: “I Stole Hillary’s Emails”
“I cannot tell a lie. I stole Hillary’s emails. Well, not all of them, about 14,000. That’s all I could fit on my already-clogged hard drive. But I ordered a new three terabyte baby from Amazon that should be here tomorrow since I have Prime — so I’ll be back for more.
“Now I know my reputation is as a writer and not a hacker or even a techie, so I owe you an explanation for how I did it — otherwise you won’t believe me. To be honest, I got a little help from Fox’s James Rosen, who wrote Thursday:
‘… with the aid of software named Maltego, experts had established that the [Clinton] server is up and running, receiving connectivity to the Internet through an Atlanta-based firm called Internap Network Services Corporation….
Now, working with publicly available tools that map network connectivity, experts have established that the last “hop” before the mail server’s Internet Protocol, or IP, address (listed as 188.8.131.52) is Internap’s aggregator in Manhattan (listed as 184.108.40.206).
A lot of technical bla-bla, then Rosen cuts to the chase:
‘Perhaps most concerning, private analysts determined that clintonemail.com has been running an older model of Microsoft Internet Information Services, or IIS – specifically version 7.5, which has been documented to leave users exposed on multiple fronts. The website CVEDetails.com, which bills itself as ‘the ultimate security vulnerability datasource,’ is awash with descriptions of serious security vulnerabilities associated with version 7.5, including “memory corruption,” “password disclosure vulnerability,” and the enabling of “remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.’
“Old Microsoft software? Exposed on multiple fronts? Password vulnerability?… This was the server of the secretary of state??? It sounded like an average Chinese third grader could crack it! . . .”
J. Christian Adams, PJM:” Hillary’s Crime: Section 1001”
“Shannen Coffin, former counsel to Vice President Dick Cheney, told Fox’s Megyn Kelly on Wednesday night that there is “no doubt” that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton committed a felony when she didn’t turn over her email records as she left the State Department — if she signed the usual exit form given to all exiting employees.
The State Department’s “Separation Statement,” Form OF-109, can be seen here.
“It requires the outgoing State Department employee to certify that all “classified or administratively controlled documents and material” have been “surrendered to responsible officials.” But it doesn’t just require the return of classified materials. It also requires the employee to certify that she has “surrendered to responsible officials all unclassified documents and papers relating to the official business of the Government acquired by me while in the employ of the Department.”
“We don’t know if there were any classified or administratively controlled materials in the emails on Clinton’s home server. Perhaps she made sure no classified information reached her server homebrew. (If classified information was stored on her home server, then that would raise an entirely different set of concerns and potential legal problems for Clinton. Just ask David Petraeus.)
“However, we do know positively that all emails ‘relating to the official business of the Government’ were not returned to the government before the former secretary of state walked out the front door of the State Department in 2013.
“She admitted at her press conference on Tuesday that she was just now turning over 50,000 pages of documents.
“The final paragraph of OF-109 just before the signature lines warns that ‘Section 1001 of Title 18, United States Code, provides criminal penalties for knowingly and willfully falsifying or concealing material fact in a statement or document’ submitted to the federal government. . .” http://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/2015/03/12/hillarys-crime-1001/

Donna Garner: Hillary tied to Common Core
During the early 1980’s, Hillary Clinton worked hand-in-glove with Marc Tucker, Ira Magaziner, Gov. Cuomo, and the National Committee on Education and the Economy (NCEE) to implement the School-to-Work model. It was Hillary and the NCEE that came up with the term “cradle-to-the-grave.”
“The NCEE idea was to create a three-legged stool – education, labor, and healthcare; and the federal government would direct people’s lives from the cradle-to-the-grave.
“All were to be joined together under one banner with government healthcare controlling people’s lives; school healthcare clinics providing abortions and contraceptives; classrooms emphasizing workforce development skills instead of academic knowledge; and the Dept. of Labor directing students into a career pathway at a very early age.
“The government was to manipulate students into the career pathways (or career clusters) based upon whatever the labor market needed at the moment – not upon what students’ natural talents, desires, and interests were. A certificate of mastery was to be awarded instead of a graduation diploma based on the Carnegie credits, and the last two years of high school were basically dumbed down for those going out into the workforce instead of going to college. . .”
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Townhall: “Obama and the Clinton Emails”
“. . .I have not seen Clinton’s signature on any documents, but standard government procedure is for her to have signed an agreement under oath when she began her work at the State Department requiring her to safeguard classified records, and another agreement under oath when she ended her work that she had returned all records to the government.
“She violated both agreements, and she violated numerous federal laws.
“By using her personal email address — @clintonemail.com — she kept her work documents from the government. Concealing government documents from the government when you work for it is a felony, punishable by up to three years in prison and permanent disqualification from holding public office.
“Failing to secure classified secrets in a government-approved facility or moving them to a non-secure facility outside the government’s control is a misdemeanor, punishable by a hefty fine and a year in jail. Using a false email address that gives the clear impression that the user is not using a government server when she is, or one that creates the false impression that the emailer is using a government server when she is not, is also a felony.
“The legal issues in Clinton’s case are all the more curious when one hears Obama’s tepid reaction to this latest scandal. Asked by Bill Plante of CBS News last weekend when he first learned of Clinton’s use of a personal email server instead of the government’s, the president told Plante he learned of it from the media, last week, when the rest of us did. He later had his press secretary state that he did recognize her use of a non-governmental email address, but did not know it was unlawful or unsecured until last week.
“Does the White House not know where the president’s emails are coming from and where they are going? . . .”
WSJ: “Clinton Unclassified”
“How could she do her job if she didn’t send classified emails?”
“The political world is still unpacking Hillary Clinton’s stonewall of a press conference on her emails as Secretary of State, with Politico summing up her overall message on Tuesday as “Go to Hell.” That’s putting it politely, but it does capture the Clintonian contempt for the media and anyone else who questions her desire to play politics according to her own rules.
“A friend of ours with long years of service in government asked another question raised by Mrs. Clinton’s defense: How could she possibly do her job as Secretary of State without sending a single email that had classified information in it?
“Mrs. Clinton insisted Tuesday that ‘I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. So I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.’ With the Clintons, you always have to parse the meaning of “is,” and Mrs. Clinton didn’t say she never received classified information via email. But if she meant both send and receive, then how could she have done her job given the hundreds of thousands of miles she traveled during her four years at Foggy Bottom? . . .”

“Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election prospects were looking increasingly grim on Wednesday amid fresh polls showing a strong lead for a buoyant Left-wing opposition and signs of panic in the Israeli prime minister’s own campaign.
“Less than a week before a general election on March 17, the Zionist Union – an alliance of Isaac Herzog’s Labour party and Hatnua, led by Tzipi Livni, a former foreign minister – had a lead of three to four seats over Mr Netanyahu’s Likud party, according to two separate surveys. . .”

Leo Knepper, CAP: “Three More Arrests from Sting Dropped by AG Kane”
“In March of 2014, Pennsylvanians learned about a sting operation that snared a number of Democratic officials accepting bribes. The public did not learn about the sting due to high profile arrests. Rather, we learned about them through press reports because Attorney General Kathleen Kane discontinued the investigation without pressing any charges. At the time, Kane called the investigation ‘deeply flawed’ and ‘so botched that this case was found unable to be prosecuted.’
“As we noted previously, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams took up the case. In December of 2014, Williams brought charges against two lawmakers.
“On Tuesday of this week, he charged three more. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer:
“Williams announced Tuesday morning that a grand jury had brought charges against State Reps. Louise Williams Bishop and Michelle Brownlee and a former state representative, Harold James, all Philadelphia Democrats. . .”
