    Hillary Clinton caught blatantly lying in effort to identify with/appeal to immigrants – handlers try to explain it away.

    Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.

    The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child.

    “We are turning down people who really want to work. I mean they are here to work. And a lot of them now have children who are American citizens, and they are doing the best they can to try to make a good life for themselves and their families. And you know, I think if we were to just go around this room, there are a lot of immigrant stories. All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going. So I sit here and I think well you’re talking about the second, third generation. That’s me, that’s you. And we are saying to all these other people who want the same dreams and the same aspirations and the willingness to work hard just like our families did that no, we’re not going to make it easy for you, we’re not going to make it legal for you. And I just think that’s such a short-term, unfortunate outcome for us and well as for them.” Clinton said.

    And, in the process, jobs that would go to legal American citizens are going to lawbreakers who’s first act here was a criminal one.

    Clinton appearances to be staged.

    Hillary Clinton’s astroturf candidacy is in full swing in Iowa.

    Her Tuesday morning visit to a coffee shop in LeClaire, Iowa was staged from beginning to end, according to Austin Bird, one of the men pictured sitting at the table with Mrs. Clinton.

    Bird told Daily Mail Online that campaign staffer Troy Price called and asked him and two other young people to meet him Tuesday morning at a restaurant in Davenport, a nearby city.

    Price then drove them to the coffee house to meet Clinton after vetting them for about a half-hour.

    The three got the lion’s share of Mrs. Clinton’s time and participated in what breathless news reports described as a ’roundtable’– the first of many in her brief Iowa campaign swing.

    George Lucas may get last laugh against neighbors who opposed his studio expansion.

    After George Lucas ran into a buzzsaw of opposition from his wealthy Marin County neighbors when he tried to expand his Skywalker Ranch studio, the filmmaker might be getting some payback with plans for one of the largest affordable housing projects in the Bay Area.

    Lucas, the Star Wars creator is offering his own property in west Marin County off Lucas Valley Road near Novato for the project, with plans for acommunity of 224 homes right where neighbors said no to his studio expansion.

    “He said ‘we’ve got enough millionaires here. What we need is some houses for regular working people,’” Lucas’ lawyer Gary Giacomini said.

    I wonder how his rich neighbors will tolerate having to be near and possibly to interact with ‘the little people’.

    In a letter to Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ben Sasse (R-NE), exclusively obtained by Breitbart News, the Social Security Administration (SSA) reveals that by the end of Fiscal Year 2014 the Obama administration “had issued approximately 541,000 original SSNs to individuals authorized to work under the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy since its inception” in 2012.

    SSN are a key factor in accessing tax benefits such as Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs.

    SSNs are also instrumental to getting tax refunds such as the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and according to the IRS illegal immigrants granted SSNs can claim up to three years of back tax refunds for illegal work. Meaning in a single year an amnestied illegal immigrant could claim up to four years of tax credits.

    According to a recent Congressional Research Service memo, the maximum level of EITC and Child Tax Credits (CTC) that a hypothetical family with three children could claim in the four years from 2011-2014 at the ‘phase-out threshold’ income would be able to obtain $35,521. A family with four children in those circumstances could claim $35,560.

    As of December 31 DHS had approved more than 787,068 DACA applications.

    Just in case any Americans try to assert their constitutional rights…

    The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase over 62 million rounds of ammo typically used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, just weeks after the ATF was forced to back down on a ban on M855 bullets.

    A posting on FedBizOpps.gov this week reveals that the DHS is looking to contract with a company to provide 12.6 million rounds of .223 Remington ammunition per year for a period of five years – totaling 62.5 million bullets.

    Starting campaign day one Hillary provides new scandals by trying to falsify spending records to hide illegal favoritism?

    Hillary Clinton filled the online video that launched her run for the White House on Sunday with what her team call “everyday Americans”.

    Three of the people featured in the video — Jared Milrad and Nathan Jones of Chicago, and Sean Bagniewski of Des Moines, Iowa — said in interviews that they were contacted, filmed and interviewed by Hardpin Media, a production company made up of filmmakers who worked on President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. The Clinton campaign said it does not agree with this view: it said the film was produced by its in-house team.

    The distinction will prove important as the Clinton campaign makes financial disclosures to the Federal Election Commission. If Hardpin did indeed work on the film, they would be obliged to charge market rates under FEC rules, and the Clinton campaign would have to report it in its upcoming financial disclosures, according to Paul Ryan of the the Campaign Legal Center, a non-profit watchdog group.

    Josh Schwerin, a Clinton campaign spokesman, emailed over a brief statement: “Per the values that Hillary outlined for our organization, we are a team and this campaign isn’t about any one of us as individuals,” he wrote. “As such, it is our policy to credit our creative team as a whole for anything we produce.

    Campaign-finance experts told Reuters they did not understand Schwerin’s explanation, and that it would not pass muster with the Federal Election Commission, which requires that campaigns itemize every payment to an outside vendor in regular disclosure reports, including those made in preparing for announcement. ”This sounds like there’s this grand kumbaya, that we’re all collectively responsible,” Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the transparency group the Sunlight Foundation, said, calling it the “opposite of accountability”.”

    How socialist. How Clintonian.

    Playing into their hands.

    On the one hand, I support a person’s basic right to refuse service to anyone.

    I also oppose the creation of yet another ‘victim class’ in a clear attempt to move them to the front of the line, to create an UNFAIR advantage while saying it’s about fairness.

    I can understand not wanting to take part in a blatantly immoral ceremony – so I can sympathize with those who refuse to bake phallic cakes or work at blatantly homosexual events.

    But what is the point in announcing that you’re not going to repair a gay person’s car? I don’t get it. And why can’t the gay people just come in, not tell them they’re gay, get their car fixed then laugh at them for fixing gay peoples’ cars even though they claimed they wouldn’t?

    Then again, I can’t fault the guy’s logic:

    Brian Klawiter, who owns Dieseltec Automotive Repair in Grandville, posted a message on his business’ Facebook page saying that he is a Christian, and that his company does not welcome “immoral behavior” — including homosexuality.

    “Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun… That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist.

    “…I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works,” the post reads, in part.

    The man makes sense. All bolts and no nuts. What a great way to put it. And note he makes the distinction that he basically just doesn’t want them coming in and making a scene, flaunting they homosexuality. If they come in and just act normal they’ll get the same treatment as everyone else.

    And, of course, the liberal response is death threats for him & his family – also lies about what he said.

    For the second time in four years, LGBT activists desecrated and destroyed a pro-life display set up on the campus of Clarion University in Pennsylvania.

    “This was a reprehensible act of discrimination against Students for Life,” said Garrett. “It was an attack on the freedom of speech. I find it quite ridiculous that this is the second time since 2011 that our crosses have been desecrated.”

    I know where I’m not going.

    Palm Springs is rich in gay history, with half of the city’s population identifying as gay — a tried-and-true queer vacation spot.

    Apparently the Hacienda at Warm Sands is an intimate, gay-owned, luxury bed & breakfast in the gay resort area of Palm Springs.

    I also won’t be taking Desert Adventure’s Gay Icons Tour. I’ll be boycotting the gay-owned Purple Room, the gay-owned restaurant Tropicale and it’s Copa room and the ‘gay strip’: the two-block strip of Palm Springs gay bars that include Streetbar (formerly A Streetbar Named Desire), Hunter’s, Spurline and the newest bar, Chill.

    Nothing wrong with visiting Palm Springs – I may go up there and take the tram myself. But you can bet I’ll check first to ensure my visit doesn’t coincide with any of these LGBT events throughout the year: White Party, the Dinah Shore Weekend, Palm Springs Pride, Leather Pride and Cinema Diverse LGBT Film Festival.

    Wait a minute! They have a WHITE PARTY? Isn’t that RACIST?

    obamacare isn’t free

    This money could have been spent improving our education system. Feeding the hungry. Providing shelter for homeless women and children. Finding and deporting illegal aliens (well, not until Obama is gone).

    Instead, 27.49% of Everyone’s Tax Bill Is Spent on Health Care. Every time someone on obamacare gets a sniffle it’s off to the Emergency Room!

    Taxpayers can see that from 2012 to 2014, the percentage of their taxes going towards federal healthcare expenses has jumped 22 percent.

    I thought that it was called the ‘affordable’ health care act! Doesn’t sound so affordable to me!

    A MUST READ!

    Should be made a requirement to read this prior to voting this year.

    “The Residence: Inside the Private World of The White House,” by Kate Brower, includes a searing account of the Clinton family’s private drama during the scandal-plagued 1990s. Through the eyes of the White House staff, Brower catalogs the marital tension between Bill and Hillary over his sexual peccadilloes, including a four-month period in 1998 at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal when Bill was forced to sleep on a sofa in his private study.

    According to Brower, though Hillary stood by her husband in public, behind the closed doors of the residence staff members frequently heard the Clintons shout at one another. At one point, a rumor circulated among staff that Hillary had thrown a lamp at Bill.

    “They all felt the general gloom that hung over the second and third floors as the Lewinsky saga dragged on throughout 1998,” Brower writes. “The residence staff witnessed the fallout from the affair and the toll it took on Hillary Clinton.”

    A woman who’s been through what Bill put Hillary through can’t be 100% sane. Would not be a good fit for the Presidency.
