House Report: Al Qaeda in Maghreb and Al Qaeda-Linked Ansar al-Sharia Did Benghazi

Posted April 24, 2013

The report also notes that al Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia took credit for the attack while it was still unfolding, and that the State Department reported this at the time to other government agencies, including the White House.

“The volatile security environment erupted on September 11, 2012, when militias composed of al Qaeda-affiliated extremists attacked U.S. interests in Benghazi,” says the report.

“The U.S. government immediately had information that the attacks were conducted by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists, yet Administration officials downplayed those connections, and focused on the idea that provocation for violence resulted from a YouTube video,” says the report that was produced by the Republican staffs of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and the House Armed Services Committee.


Michael Bloomberg: Constitution Will Have To Change For Greater Security

Posted April 24, 2013

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will “have to change” to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks.

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

Sleeping with the Saudis

Posted April 24, 2013

But as bad as that story is, I fear there is another that is even worse that is being covered up. There was someone arrested before the Chechen brothers were caught, a Saudi national by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi. Rumor has it that he has strong connections to a powerful Saudi family and that he is a known terrorist. He also has many known terrorists in his family. But the Obama Administration has been doing all it can to muffle anything having to do with this “person of interest.” This kid just happened to be there at the finish line rooting for a runner and probably helping with the bombing. He is also on a terrorist watch list.

In January, Saudi travelers were given ‘preferred travel status’ by the U.S. Napolitano signed off on that. That means while regular Americans are treated like terrorists by the TSA, Saudi nationalists (remember 15 of the 19 bombers on 9-11 were Saudi nationals) get to walk right through security and into the U.S. Everything is upside down. Also remember, that after 9-11, President Bush let 140 Saudis in the U.S. get on a plane and go home when the rest of the country was shut down. Do the math. Hell, even a SWAG would do.


Gosnell's Attorney: 'Ludicrous' 'To Say a Baby is Born Alive Because It Moves One Time'

Posted April 24, 2013

(CNSNews.com) –The defense attorney for late-term abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who is on trial for murdering babies who survived abortions, told a Philadelphia court today that it is "ludicrous" to claim that "a baby is born alive because it moves one time without any other movement."

The judge in the case today threw out three of the eight murder charges against Gosnell.

“If we are going in this room to say a baby is born alive because it moves one time without any other movement, that is ludicrous,” defense attorney Jack McMahon said.

Although three of the murder charges were dismissed,  Gosnell still faces five other murder charges and other criminal charges in the case.

Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Jeffrey P. Minehart granted judgment of acquittal for the first-degree murder charges of three babies in the case, identified as “Baby B,” “Baby C,” and “Baby G.”


Judge Dimisses Three Murder Charges of Born-Alive Babies Against Gosnell

Posted April 24, 2013

The judge in Kermit Gosnell’s trial dropped three murder charges against him on Tuesday. These charges were for three of the seven babies Gosnell is accused of killing after they were born alive.

Tuesday morning, Gosnell’s attorneys asked for these charges to be dropped due to lack of evidence. The court did not release details why the judge dropped these three charges or which babies they were for; LifeNews has since reported one of the charges dropped was for "Baby Boy B," the 28-week baby found in a freezer. Last week, the medical examiner could not confirm if the baby died before or after he was born.


Obama's keynote speech to Planned Parenthood puts abortion back in spotlight

Posted April 24, 2013

President Obama will again embrace Planned Parenthood this week, headlining the group's annual gala even amid a growing national focus on abortion.
Planned Parenthood, a lightning rod in conservative circles, announced Tuesday that Obama would give the keynote speech at its annual Washington event, joining Dr. Ruth Westheimer and actress Lena Dunham as "champions of women's health."

"President Obama has done more than any president in history for women's health and rights," said Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. "He understands that access to birth control and preventive health care are economic issues for women and their families."

But the ceremony comes at an inconvenient time for the White House.


The controversial moment SWAT teams ordered innocent neighbors out of their houses at GUNPOINT during door-to-door searches for the Boston bomber

Posted April 24, 2013

A startling home-made video now shows the terrifying moments where Watertown residents were forced out of their homes at gunpoint as SWAT teams performed door-to-door searches as they hunted the second marathon bomber.

While millions of Bostonians waited in their houses on Friday during the city-wide lockdown, the people of Watertown were faced with SWAT officers yelling at them to get out of the buildings immediately.

At the time, the Boston police department and federal agents were barely criticized, but now many are concerned about the dangerous precedent that could lead to more police searches using the rationale of ‘exigent circumstances’ as an excuse.

Beck Breaks Exclusive Information on Saudi National Once Considered a Person of Interest in Boston Bombings

Posted April 23, 2013

Background points:

  • A Saudi national originally identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing was set to be deported under section 212 3B — “Security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities” after the bombing
  • As the story gained traction, TheBlaze’s Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood received word that the government may not deport the Saudi national, originally identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi
  • Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer questions on the subject when confronted by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on Capitol Hill.
  • An ICE official said a different Saudi national is in custody, but is “in no way” connected to the bombings.
  • A congressional source, however, says that the file on Alharbi was created, that he was “linked” in some way to the Boston bombings (though it is unclear how), and that documents showing all this have been sent to Congress.
  • Key congressmen of the Committee on Homeland Security request a classified briefing with Napolitano
  • Fox News’ Todd Starnes reports that Alharbi was allegedly flagged on a terrorist watch list and granted a student visa without being properly vetted.  Sources close to the investigation also told him the Saudi is still set for deportation.
  • New information provided to TheBlaze reveals Alharbi’s file was altered early Wednesday evening to disassociate him from the initial charges
  • Sources say the Saudi’s student visa specifically allows him to go to school in Findlay, Ohio, though he appears to have an apartment in Boston, Massachusetts
  • Sources tell us this will most likely now be kicked from the DHS to the DOJ and labeled an ongoing investigation that can no longer be discussed.


UN Human Rights Official Says Boston Got What It Deserved

Posted April 23, 2013

UN Human Rights Council “expert” Richard Falk has published a statement saying Bostonians got what they deserved in last week’s terror attack.  He quotes W.H. Auden to make his point: "to whom evil is done/do evil in return.”  

Richard Falk is the UN’s “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.” He has held the post since 2008, despite exposure as a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.


TheBlaze Exclusive: Key Congressmen Request Classified Briefing on Saudi ‘Person of Interest’ in Boston Bombing

Posted April 23, 2013

The House Committee on Homeland Security on Sunday emailed TheBlaze a copy of their request to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano for more information on the Saudi national originally described as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.

The Saudi national — originally identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi — has been the topic of fierce debate in recent days, after he was reportedly set to be deported under section 212 3B of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) – “Security and related grounds” – “Terrorist activities,” after the bombing.

The story gained a curious twist when, after it gained more traction, President & Chief Content Officer for TheBlaze Joel Cheatwood received word from one of his investigative reporters that “there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported.”


Rand Paul: Stop Debate on Immigration Bill

Posted April 23, 2013

On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said the Senate should not proceed with the Gang of Eight's comprehensive immigration bill until lawmakers more fully understand the failures of the country's current immigration system and how it may have let in two immigrants who are suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon. 

"We should not proceed until we understand the specific failures of our immigration system," Paul wrote in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).


Just How Did those “Sealed” Blagojevich Tapes Get to the Tribune Reporters?

Posted April 23, 2013

On March 15, 2012, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich reported to a low-security federal prison in Colorado to start serving a 14-year sentence for public corruption, including an attempt to sell Barack Obama’s old Senate seat.

Blagojevich’s defense attorneys have insisted all along that the impeached former governor will eventually be exonerated on appeal because U.S. District Court Judge James Zagel improperly sealed many of the federal wiretaps they claim would have proved his innocence.

“The judge would not let him play his tapes…there {sic} had tapes in both trials that would have established his innocence. The judge wouldn’t let us play them,” defense attorney Sam Adam, Jr. told Chicago’s CBS-Channel 2.


Exxon Mobile & Common Core

Online sales tax overwhelmingly passes cloture vote

Posted April 23, 2013

The Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states the mechanism to start collecting taxes for online sales, overwhelmingly passed a Senate cloture vote Monday night, circumventing regular order and drawing concern from a minority of Senators over the end of the debate on the proposal. Seventy four Senators voted in favor of the motion, while 20 dissented.

Prior to the vote, many Senators took the floor expressing their disdain for the process the bill was going through, avoiding regular order and a vetting process, which would include a committee markup in the Senate Finance Committee.

"Regular order is not a process designed to protect the power and committee structures…but to make sure that the legislation we pass is technically sound," Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch argued.

EXCLUSIVE -- Secret Emails: Cato, Norquist, Rubio Use Boston Terror Attacks to Push Immigration Reform

Posted April 22, 2013

Secret emails obtained exclusively by Breitbart News show the libertarian Cato Institute, Americans for Tax Reform, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are colluding on immigration reform messaging in the wake of the Boston Marathon terror attack in order to push the “Gang of Eight” bill that was released this past week.

Posted April 24, 2013
by Congressman Louie Gohmert

Last week was heart wrenching. It truly tested the resolve and faith of Americans across the country. On Monday, we witnessed a terrorist attack on our soil that killed three and tragically injured more than 150 innocent bystanders in Boston. Then, on Wednesday night, we watched as a fertilizer plant in West, Texas was consumed in flames killing dozens and destroying homes.

When devastation and tragedy occur, our hearts break for those who are harmed and who lose loved ones. We mourn and try to help. Then come questions that must be asked so that we can try to avoid such horrors in the future. C-SPAN Washington Journal, a show that I have appeared on numerous times, asked me to appear on their program last Wednesday – just two days after the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon. Being the Vice Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security and a former judge, they wanted me to weigh in on homeland security issues.

During the hour-long broadcast, the topic turned from terrorism to immigration. Being familiar with specific testimony on the subject, I made the comment that there are individuals with known terrorist ties, who are trained to act Hispanic in order to gain access to the United States to carry out harm.

This truthful assertion was based on fact, but has now been grossly misconstrued and vilified for simply restating information that has been publicly disclosed by those who knew. Liberal media outlets blasted out stories condemning me with outrageous titles – labeling me a “racist” among other things. Other media which did not know the truth simply accepted such false characterization without checking to see if my comments were true. Such writers have instead even called for Senators Ted Cruz, John Cornyn and Marco Rubio, as well as Gov. Rick Perry to denounce my statements.

During testimony before Congress, FBI Director Robert Mueller covered efforts by al Qaeda and Hizbollah to establish a presence specifically in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America.


Cruz Presses Big Sis: Did You Read the 844-page Immigration Bill?

Posted April 24, 2013

At Tuesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on whether she actually read the bill she was testifying about before her appearance at the hearing.

With Napolitano having to focus most of her attention on the terrorist attacks in Boston, Cruz wondered where she found the time to read the legislation. She said she did read the bill, but Cruz joked that must have made a “busy weekend” for Napolitano.

Here’s a transcript of the exchange:



Posted April 23, 2013

This week, the full Texas House will vote on whether or not to use property taxes & sales taxes to build toll roads using Transportation Reinvestment Zones (TRZs). That means they'll build the road with property tax, but will charge you a TOLL to drive on it - another DOUBLE TAX scheme. It also expands the use of TRZs to fund transit, rail (think street car), even parking lots!

We DEFEATED the expansion of TRZs known as Prop 4 on the Constitutional Amendment election in November 2011 (read about it here), so we can certainly do it again! The senate version of this bill already passed the Senate. Every member of the Senate voted FOR it, so stopping this in the House is a MUST!

It's up to YOU to help us STOP it in the House!

Sen. Cruz: Pathway to Citizenship Would Kill Immigration Reform Bill

Posted April 23, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Monday that including a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants “jeopardizes the likelihood” of any immigration reform bill passing.

“I think if instead the bill includes elements that are deeply divisive – and I would note that I don’t think there is any issue in this entire debate that is more divisive than a path to citizenship for those who are here illegally - in my view, any bill that insists upon that jeopardizes the likelihood of passing any immigration reform bill,” said Cruz at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration reform.


Why Ted Cruz is not a typical freshman senator

Posted April 23, 2013

Dianne Feinstein was agitated.

The Democratic senator from California did not like the line of questioning she was getting from Sen. Ted Cruz, the freshman Republican from Texas, as she defended her so-called assault weapons bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee in March.

Cruz was reciting from the Constitution. He then asked that given Feinstein’s position on the government banning certain types of guns: Would she also approve of the government banning books it found harmful?

“I’m not a sixth grader,” Feinstein responded, expressing contempt for the question. She went on to point out that she had “studied the Constitution myself,” and “am reasonably well-educated.”

“I thank you for the lecture,” she added.

Demonizing Ted Cruz

Posted April 23, 2013

Ted Cruz has made quite an impression in just three months in the Senate. Like Marco Rubio, he is the son of a Cuban exile. He is a extraordinarily talented guy. Unlike Barack Obama, he had a stellar record both in academia and in the practice of law: he was national debating champion, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, clerked for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, was named by American Lawyer magazine as one of the 50 Best Litigators under 45 in America, served as Solicitor General of the State of Texas and authored more than 80 briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court. As a law student, Cruz was described by Professor Alan Dershowitz as “off the charts brilliant.” He was elected to the Senate last year in what the Washington Post called “the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds.” So it is not surprising that, just as Cruz has quickly become a hero on the right, the Democratic Party is out to destroy him.

URGENT - SB 241 Please write the following Senators to support this bill

Posted April 22, 2013

Below are the Senators on the Business and Commerce Committee where SB 241 is under consideration to allow utility customers to Opt Out at no-charge of having a Smart Meter on Texas resident’s homes and require the meter removal. Attached is a document with reasons for providing an Opt Out. This committee heard testimonies on April 9. The bill is currently in a pending status. It is crucial for people to call and email these Senators ASAP to support SB241 so it has time to make it to the floor for a vote.


Reasons for Opt Out at no Charge to the Consumer

Posted April 22, 2013

First, the deployment was never mandatory; therefore, paying to opt-out of a non-mandatory action is irrational and illogical. It is a punitive disincentive to choosing what is best for the individual, whether it relates to health concerns, privacy, or security.

Second, the basis for health concerns is widespread. There are now over 6,000 peer reviewed submissions that have been published showing the potentially harmful effects of exposure to RF radiation from wireless digital transmission at levels far below the thermal activity.



Posted April 22, 2013

SB 1406 by Sens. Dan Patrick and Donna Campbell and Coauthors Sens. Nelson | Paxton would grant the State Board of Education oversight of regional education service center activities concerning certain curriculum management systems.

Texas Tea Party Groups Unite for West, TX Explosion Victims

Posted April 19, 2013

Immediately following news of the devastating explosion of a fertilizer plant in the rural Texas town of West, the nearby Waco Tea Party began organizing efforts to help those affected. 

The group’s president, Toby Walker, called a local hotel and secured a room for the wives and families of first responders. Wives and mothers began to receive updates from the front lines as they charted a course of action for the following day.

Local distribution centers were identified and the conservative networks were activated to volunteer and help operate the collecting, sorting, and distribution of needed items. Breitbart News’ own Brandon Darby was asked to go and help with the efforts. 

Darby had extensive experience with relief efforts in post-Katrina New Orleans and now runs Citizen Patriot Response, a group that mobilizes Tea Party and other liberty-minded groups to help communities in need. Darby began sorting through the fog of disaster and reporting the facts to the public-at-large shorty after last night's tragic accident. 

Almost immediately, area 912 groups began mobilizing relief efforts. Houston’s King Street Patriots and True the Vote networks were notified; the groups’ offices were established as an aid collection center for the people of West. 

All of the various groups involved have pledged to continue mobilizing the Tea Party, 912, and other right-of-center movements into a relief and aid network for the people of West.

The local Waco Tea Party has compiled a list of things needed, where money can be donated, and locations where items can be sent.

A Houston aid drop-off location was also established by King Street Patriots and True the Vote.
