The DEA and ATF cooperated to record the license plates of attendees at gun shows.

The Obama U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Obama Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives cooperated to build a massive database of license plate images collected by automated license plate reader devices of gun shows attendees.
Guns.com reported:

According to emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union, federal authorities planned to monitor gun show parking lots with automatic license plate readers.

The insight comes from a damning report released by the ACLU this week on a secretive program by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to build a massive database of license plates images collected by automated license plate reader devices. As part of this investigation, emails released through the Freedom of Information Act detailed a planned cooperation between the DEA’s National License Plate Recognition initiative and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to scan and record the plates and vehicle images of gun show attendees.

“DEA Phoenix Division Office is working closely with ATF on attacking the guns going to [redacted] and the gun shows, to include programs/operation with LPRs at the gun shows,” reads an April 2009 email.

The time and place mentioned in the email coincides with known information on the Justice Department’sFast and Furious operation, a controversial “gunwalking” scandal that possibly transferred as many as 2,000 guns to drug traffickers in Mexico. That program was run out of the Phoenix ATF Field Divisionoffice, just two miles from the DEA office.

Flashback: Wife of Disabled Vet Severely Wounded in Bergdahl Search Lashes Out at “Traitor” Bergdahl

Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen was severely injured while searching for deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

Mark Allen, who is from Loganville, Georgia, was injured when a sniper bullet pierced the armor in his helmet in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Unlike the Obama administration, Debbie Allen does not believe Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

Debbie Allen lashed out at Bergdahl in a June 2014 Facebook post.
The Blaze reported:

The wife of a disabled Afghanistan veteran who was injured while searching for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has posted a scathing message against him this week, adding a personal account to the rising protests against the negotiations with the Taliban that lead to Bergdahl’s freedom.

In a message she posted via Facebook, Shannon Allen, wife of Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen, wrote:

‘Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a “hero” again?!? Sick.’

In addition to the message, Allen posted a family picture, showing husband and wife in addition to their daughter. Mark Allen was posed in his wheelchair wearing his dress blues, while their daughter was wearing a graduation cap and gown.

“Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a ‘hero’ again?!? Sick.”

Susan Rice insisted Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

Russian Bombers Intercepted Over English Channel

Russian nuclear-capable bombers were intercepted over the English Channel this week.
CNN reported:

Russia’s ambassador to Britain was summoned to the UK’s Foreign Office on Thursday to explain why two Russian bombers were flying over the English Channel this week, a representative of the office said.

Two Russian bombers “caused disruption to civil aviation” when they flew near, but did not cross into, British airspace on Wednesday, the Foreign Office representative said.

Two UK Royal Air Force jets intercepted the bombers, both capable of carrying nuclear weapons, south of Bournemouth, England, over the English Channel, a UK defense spokesman said Thursday.

The British jets escorted the bombers for about an hour-and-a-half until the bombers left the area, the defense spokesman said.

“Russian aircraft maneuvers yesterday are part of (an) increasing pattern of out-of-area operations by Russian aircraft,” the Foreign Office representative said.

The representative did not elaborate on how civil aviation was disrupted. Details about what the Russian ambassador has told Britain about the incident weren’t immediately available.

Couple this with the Russian spy ship in Cuba and the three Russian spies recently charged in New York, and it appears the Cold War is back on. Hillary, your “Reset” button appears to be defective.

For the record… Condoleezza Rice warned about the vacuum created by Obama’s failed policies.
The Washington Times reported:

“Right now, there’s a vacuum. There’s a vacuum because we’ve decided to lower our voice. We’ve decided to step back. We’ve decided that if we step back and lower our voice, others will lead. Other things will fill the vacuum,” she said, according to audio obtained by The Washington Times. “But of course it’s not our allies and our friends, it’s not the international norms that have filled that vacuum. It is instead dictators like Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Vladimir Putin in Russia. It’s extremists like al Qaeda raising the black flag in Fallujah in Iraq.”

She did not mention Mr. Obama by name, but blasted both his approach and his specific policies, including the Pentagon’s recent announcement of major force reductions.

Mitt Romney NOT RUNNING For President

mitt ann

Mitt Romney told supporters today he is not running for president in 2016.
Yahoo-AP reported:

After a three-week flirtation with another run for president, Mitt Romney said definitively on Friday that he will not seek the White House in 2016.

The Republican Party’s 2012 nominee plans to tell supporters about his plans to pass on another national campaign during a conference call. He first let his staff know in a separate call that he was out of the race.

“After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” Romney said in a statement, which he planned to read to supporters on the call.

The former governor of Massachusetts had jumped back into the presidential discussion on Jan. 10, when he surprised a small group of former donors at a meeting in New York by telling them he was eyeing a third run for the White House.

Romney posted this yesterday on his Twitter account:

The liberal media savaged Mitt Romney nonstop for two weeks.
Now they’ll have to focus on the next Republican in the fold.

Somewhere, Jeb Bush is smiling.

Gov. Kasich Defends Support for Obamacare: “I Don’t Pay Much Attention to Narrow Ideologues”

obamacare

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R-OH) defended his support for Obamacare by quoting Bible verses. Regarding his critics, Kasich said, “I don’t pay much attention to the narrow ideologues.”

WatchDog.org reported:

Matthew 25 includes a call for more entitlement spending and provides biblical justification for Obamacare, or so says Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Promoting Obamacare in South Dakota, Montana and several national interviews last week, Kasich touted the Bible chapter’s depiction of judgment based on individual charity as a sweeping endorsement of government programs for the poor.

Kasich, a Republican, campaigned against Obamacare in 2010, saying the law’s Medicaid expansion would “stick states with large and unsustainable costs.” He unilaterally implemented the Obamacare Medicaid expansion in 2013.

The Obamacare expansion puts able-bodied, working-age adults with no dependent children on Medicaid at a cost of billions per year in new federal spending. By Kasich’s description, Matthew 25 amounts to a divine endorsement of the policy.

“Now, if you ever read Matthew 25, I think, ‘I wanna feed the hungry and clothe the naked,’” Kasich said when asked about Obamacare at a Jan. 20 event in Pierre, South Dakota.

“Now, I don’t know whether you ever read Matthew 25, but I commend it to you, the end of it, about do you feed the homeless and do you clothe the poor,” Kasich told Montana legislators when asked about Obamacare at a Helena press conference the next day.

Kasich cited Matthew 25 when defending his Obamacare expansion during a Fox News interview aired Jan. 22, during a Jan. 22 Hugh Hewitt interview and during an NPR interview aired Friday.

Regarding Obamacare critics, Kasich told NPR, “I don’t pay much attention to narrow ideologues.”

Olympic Decathlete Bruce Jenner to Discuss Transition to Woman on New Reality TV Show

The “World’s Greatest Athlete” Bruce Jenner is filming a reality show about his transition from a man to a woman.

Bruce Jenner won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.

Jenner was an idol to young boys around the country – now this.
This is quite a shock.
FOX News reported:

Bruce Jenner has been filming a reality show about his “life changes,” TMZ reports.

The show will reportedly run on E!, which also airs “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” about his famous family.

A rep for E! told FOX411 they were not commenting on the report.

Jenner’s stepdaughter Kim Kardashian said Jenner is currently involved in a personal “journey,” adding she has never seen him more happy.

TMZ’s source said Jenner’s interactions with his family will be part of the show, and that at one point in the filming, his now ex-wife Kris, “lost it.”

The gossip site reported Kris will have little control over the former athlete’s show, and he has taken control over the production and air date.

Jenner’s changing appearance over the past year-or-so — long wavy hair, lip filler, fingernail polish — have sparked numerous tabloid reports he may be transitioning from a man to a woman.

Breaking: TALIBAN Claims Responsibility for Murder of Three US Contractors in Kabul

BREAKING: TALIBAN CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR MURDER OF THREE AMERICANS AT KABUL AIRPORT

On Wednesday White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz argued that the Taliban is not a terrorist group, but instead an “armed insurgency.”

On Thursday White House Spokesman Josh Earnest doubled-down on the idiocy.
Earnest told reporters:

“They have a different classification. They have a classification that does allow us to place financial concessions against them that have succeeded in limiting their capability. They’ve been effective. And that is different than an organization like Al-Qaeda that has much broader global aspiration to carry out acts of violence and acts of terror.”

What complete nonsense.

Today three US contractors were shot to death at the Kabul Airport in an apparent insider attack.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

Former Gitmo Detainee & ISIS Recruiter Arrested in Afghanistan

Pajhwok Afghan News reported:

The Taliban on Wednesday captured Mullah Abdul Rauf Khadim, an Islamic State (IS) ally, along with 45 supporters in the Kajaki district of southern Helmand province, a reliable source confided to Pajhwok Afghan News.

However, security officials expressed unawareness about the detention of Rauf, who became a recruiter for the IS group in Afghanistan after falling out with the Taliban. Rauf, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, was a military commander in Herat and Kabul during Taliban’s regime.

He recently joined the IS, a jihadi group which controls large swaths of land in Iraq and Syria, and has been leading hundreds of masked gunmen in northern districts of Helmand.

A Taliban commander in Helmand, wishing anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News they disarmed Rauf and his 45 gunmen and detained them on Wednesday in compliance with directives from the Taliban’s governor for Helmand, Mullah Abdul Rahim Akhund.

He said the men were in their custody and their fate would be decided by Taliban religious leaders and judges.

Texas Woman Hijacks TX Muslim Presser, Grabs Mic and Screams “Islam Will Never Dominate the US” (VIDEO)

A Texas woman hijacked the Muslim Capital Day press conference at the Texas Capitol today.
She grabbed the mic from the organizers and took over the event.

The woman grabbed the microphone and shouted:

“False prophet Muhammed! Islam will never dominate the United States and, by the grace of God, it will not dominate Texas.”

Around 25 protesters greeted the Muslims at the state capitol.

Via Mediaite:

When members of the Muslim community showed up to the Capitol for the annual meeting with state lawmakers, they were greeted by roughly 25 protesters who showed up to give the Muslim community a piece of their mind. According to the Texas Tribune, one demonstrator’s sign read “Radical Islam is the New Nazi,” and another’s: “Go Home & Take Obama With You.”

Later in the day, during the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) press conference at the Capitol, an unidentified woman grabbed the microphone from an organizer and began shouting: “False prophet Muhammed! Islam will never dominate the United States and, by the grace of God, it will not dominate Texas.”

She stormed off immediately afterwards.

Breaking: One of the “TALIBAN FIVE” Swapped for Bergdahl Returns to Terror

Today, one of the “Taliban 5 Dream Team” that Hillary Clinton used to call “not a threat to the United States” returned to the battlefield, according to CNN.

Each passing day, the Obama-Clinton foreign policy continues to unravel.

gitmo detainees bergdahl

Hillary Clinton said The Taliban Five Are “Not A Threat To The United States.”

CLINTON: “These five guys are not a threat to the United States. They are a threat to the safety and security of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It’s up to those two countries to make the decision once and for all that these are threats to them. So I think we may be kind of missing the bigger picture here. We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped, we try to rescue everybody.”

The Gitmo terrorists celebrated their release with a few “Allahu Akbars” when they arrived in Qatar.

Already one of the Taliban Dream Team has returned to terror.

CNN
reported:

The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar, CNN has learned exclusively. The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.

This is the first known suggestion that any of the detainees involved in the exchange may be trying to engage again in militant activity. It comes at a politically sensitive time as the administration has quickened the pace of prisoner release in an effort to encourage the closure of the facility, and the Army must decide in the coming weeks whether and how to punish Bergdahl for leaving his post.

Several U.S. officials across different agencies and branches of the U.S. government have confirmed key details to CNN. The White House referred CNN to the Pentagon, and the Pentagon has declined to comment on the matter.

The officials would not say which of the five men is suspected. But an ongoing U.S. intelligence program to secretly intercept and monitor all of their communications in Qatar turned up evidence in recent months that one of them has “reached out” to try to encourage militant activity, one official said. The official would offer no further details. Under current law, this act placed the man in the category of being “suspected” of re-engaging in terrorist or insurgent activities. However several officials say there is now a debate inside the administration that the intelligence may be stronger than the “suspected” classification. Some elements of the intelligence community believe the information is strong enough to classify the man as “confirmed” for returning to illegal activities. One official told CNN all five men are having their communications even more closely monitored right now, but the belief is there is no current threat.
