Here’s the growing list of big-name Republicans supporting Hillary Clinton

 Richard Armitage, Henry Paulson, Brent Scowcroft. Three big-name former George W. Bush administration officials in the past two weeks have announced that they are supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016 — all because Donald Trump is simply a bridge too far for them.

"When it comes to the presidency, I will not vote for Donald Trump," Paulson wrote in The Washington Post last week. "I will not cast a write-in vote. I’ll be voting for Hillary Clinton, with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world. To my Republican friends: I know I’m not alone."

He's not. And below are the big names that are with him — or, perhaps more accurately, with her.

(A note: While many, many Republicans have declined to embrace Trump's candidacy, a growing but significantly smaller group has gone so far as to express support for Clinton. This list focuses on the latter, and it will be updated in the weeks ahead.)

 

Bush administration officials
  • Henry Paulson, treasury secretary
  • Richard Armitage, deputy secretary of state and adviser to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush — Trump "doesn't appear to be to be a Republican, he doesn't appear to want to learn about issues. So I’m going to vote for Mrs. Clinton."
  •  
  • Brent Scowcroft, chairman of the President's Intelligence Advisory Board and adviser to three previous GOP presidents — "The presidency requires the judgment and knowledge to make tough calls under pressure.... [Clinton] has the wisdom and experience to lead our country at this critical time."
  •  
  • Alan Steinberg, regional EPA administrator
  • Kori Schake, National Security Council and State Department aide
Advisers to previous GOP presidents
Business leaders/donors
  • Marc Andreessen, venture capitalist — "[Silicon] Valley wouldn't be here, we wouldn't be doing any of this if we didn't have the amazing flow of immigrants that we've had in the last 80 years. And the idea of choking that off just makes me sick to my stomach."
  •  
  • Dan Akerson, former chairman and chief executive of General Motors — "Serving as the leader of the free world requires effective leadership, sound judgment, a steady hand and, most importantly, the temperament to deal with crises large and small. Donald Trump lacks each of these characteristics."
  •  
  • Chuck Robbins, chief executive of Cisco
  • Hamid Moghadam, chairman and chief executive of Prologis — "Our country is about tolerance and inclusion and that's why, as a lifelong Republican supporter, I endorse Hillary Clinton for president in this election."
  •  
  • William Oberndorf, $3 million to GOP candidates since 2012 — "If it is Trump vs. Clinton, and there is no viable third-party candidate, I will be voting for Hillary Clinton."
  •  
  • Mike Fernandez, $4 million to GOP candidates in recent years — "If I have a choice — and you can put it in bold — if I have a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton, I’m choosing Hillary. She’s the lesser of two evils."
  •  
  •  
    Former Republican elected officials
  • Larry Pressler, former three-term Republican senator from South Dakota who lost an independent campaign for his old seat in 2014 — "I can’t believe I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, but I am. If someone had told me 10 years ago I would do this, I wouldn’t have believed them."
  •  
  • Arne Carlson, a former two-term Republican governor of Minnesota who supported President Obama
  • Robert Smith, former New York state Supreme Court justice — "This year, I’m going to vote for a Democrat for president  —  the first time I’ve done it in 36 years  —  and I think the decision is easy. Hillary Clinton is the only responsible choice, and I don’t understand why so few of my fellow conservatives see it that way."
Political operatives
  • Mark Salter, former top adviser to John McCain — "Whatever Hillary Clinton’s faults, she’s not ignorant or hateful or a nut. She acts like an adult and understands the responsibilities of an American president. That might not be a ringing endorsement. But in 2016, the year of Trump’s s campaign, it’s more than enough."

McDonald's Marine Attack

Marine veteran Christopher Marquez was involved in an altercation at a Washington, D.C., McDonald's, but police said there was no indication the argument involved Black Lives Matter activists

 

 
n 15 February 2016, the web site The Daily Caller published an article about an altercation involving Marine veteran Christopher Marquez.  The item was written entirely from information provided by Marquez himself (supplemented by information obtained by The Daily Caller from police and the McDonald's at which the altercation occurred), and held:

A former Marine became the target of an alleged assault in a McDonald’s Friday night, as a crowd of youths cornered him and demanded he answer the question, “do you believe black lives matter?” Before knocking him unconscious and robbing him.
“I remember this group of teens harassing me while I was eating, they surrounded my table and kept on asking me ‘Do you believe black lives matter,'” Marquez told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Then they started calling me a racist. I can’t recall if they were saying anything else to me at this moment because the blow to my head really screwed up my memory.”
DeAnthony Mason, manager of the McDonald’s, reviewed security footage and told Marquez in a phone call Saturday that when he left the restaurant a teen with a white shirt struck him on the side of the head, knocking him unconscious. The other teens then converged on his incapacitated body, taking his belongings. The head blow Marquez sustained left his memory dazed, but Mason’s review of security footage helped him piece together what occurred.

A number of subsequent articles appeared on numerous web sites, all seemingly sourced primarily or solely from The Daily Caller's report. USMC Life, Washington Times, New York Daily News, Daily Mailand Fox News all carried near-identical iterations of the claim. The latter added:

Credit card transactions reviewed by The Daily Caller revealed that Marquez’s cards later were charged more than $115 at a liquor store, Five Guys and a Walmart.
The teens involved in the attack were being sought by police for a previous incident, Mason said, according to Marquez.
But the D.C. Metropolitan Police told FoxNews.com Wednesday that they are still working to identify the four people in the video.
According to the Daily Caller, which first reported the incident, Marquez was able to take a cab back to his apartment, where building employees called police. He was treated at George Washington University Hospital for head trauma.
The Washington Post appeared to be largely alone in independently verifying Marquez's account outside The Daily Caller's original item, reporting that the incident occurred at a McDonald's on the 900 block of E Street NW. The paper confirmed that police were unable to verify some of Marquez's claims, adding that surveillance video of the altercation wasn't immediately conclusive:


A former U.S. Marine was assaulted at a downtown Washington McDonald’s restaurant Friday night in an attack the victim said was racially motivated, according to D.C. police ... Christopher Andrew Marquez — who attends American University and ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2014 in California — said in an interview that the attack occurred after several black youths asked him whether “black lives matter” and then called him racist ... The incident was first reported by the Daily Caller, a conservative Internet news and opinion site.
Police could not verify the motive as described by Marquez and said they are continuing to look into the case. Dustin Sternbeck, the chief D.C. police spokesman, said detectives are reviewing surveillance video of the assault but it was not immediately clear what it shows.
“It’s an active investigation, and in this case, as in any other, we’re going to investigate it to the fullest,” Sternbeck said.
Marquez said they were trying to intimidate him, and soon after he said things got fuzzy. He said he believes he was hit in the back of the head with what might have been a pistol ... He said he contacted the restaurant manager about the incident, who he said provided him with some details of the attack. The manager could not be reached for comment.


The bulk of other outlets' reporting seemed to be nothing but unvetted statements from Marquez to The Daily Caller and other outlets.  The reporting was uncritical, despite Marquez's own admission that his memory of the attack was spotty. (In one account, Marquez stated that his recollection was jogged by a phone call with Mason about the incident, revealing that some of the details he "remembered" were possibly described or suggested to him after the fact.)

We attempted to contact Mason (the manager with whom The Daily Caller discussed the security footage) but were unsuccessful in reaching him. Another manager at the restaurant said Mason "might" call us back.

We also spoke with an officer from Washington D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department about the widely-circulated claims, who confirmed that Marquez was involved in an altercation at the McDonald's in question on 12 February 2016. The officer said records indicated that after an interaction between the individuals involved and Marquez, one of the four males allegedly called him a "racist." No details were available about the conversation or events which led up to that point, and even that detail was provided solely by Marquez.

We asked whether multiple news reports citing the Black Lives Matter movement were supported by police records. The officer said there was no indication that any of the individuals were involved with (or even mentioned) Black Lives Matter. The officer confirmed that Marquez was robbed, but we were unable to corroborate reports that his credit cards were used at a Five Guys or a Walmart (or how teens were able to use the cards at a liquor store).

Finally, we asked about Marquez's assertion the teens were sought by police for a "previous incident." The officer said that claim did not match the report.

So while it's true Marquez was involved in an altercation and subsequently robbed, the identities of the suspects remained unknown. Police in Washington, D.C. told us that there was no evidence of a link between the dispute and Black Lives Matter activism, nor did any police reports suggest the teens were already wanted for a "previous incident."

On 18 February 2016, the YouTube channel DC Metropolitan Police Department published a video titled "Persons of Interest in Agg. Assault/Robbery (Pickpocket), 900 b/o E St, NW, on February 12, 2016," along with a statement:




The Metropolitan Police Department seeks the public's assistance in identifying and locating three persons of interest in reference to an Aggravated Assault and Robbery (Pickpocket) incident which occurred in the 900 block of E Street, NW, on Friday, February 12, 2016 at approximately 9:40 PM. The subjects were captured by the establishment's surveillance cameras
The video footage did not feature an audio component. On 23 February 2016, WUSA reported two teens were arrested in connection with the incident; WTVR added that police "made no mention of motive":

Two teens have been arrested in connection to the assault and robbery of a veteran Marine sergeant, D.C. police said.
Police said one 17-year-old male and one 17-year-old female were involved in the attack. The male was charged with aggravated assault and the female was charged with robbery.


'Boom boom boom - he's killing the kids': Gunman shouting 'Allahu Akbar' executed children in Munich McDonald's before rampaging through mall killing NINE with police now hunting three attackers




'Boom boom boom - he's killing the kids': Gunman shouting 'Allahu Akbar' executed children in Munich McDonald's before rampaging through mall killing NINE with police now hunting three attackers 

  • A number of people have been killed and another 10 people are injured after gunmen went on a shooting rampage
  • Police operation is ongoing in Munich, with the force warning people to stay in their homes and avoid public spaces
  • Terrified shoppers were seen running for their lives from the Olympia Shopping Centre after hearing gunshots 
  • Witnesses said that the shopping centre gunman screamed 'I'm German' and 'Allahu Akbar' before shooting
  • Gunman reportedly fled after his shooting spree on the city underground network, which has now been shut down
  • City is in lockdown as police say they are searching for up to three gunmen, who are all on the run, after the attack

A gunman shouting 'Allahu Akbar' opened fire at children in McDonald's before rampaging through a shopping mall, killing at least eight people. 

Munich is in lockdown tonight, as a major police operation is ongoing around the city's Olympic Park, with the force warning people to stay in their homes and avoid public spaces.

A ninth body has been found tonight and investigators are looking into the possibility of it being the attacker. 

Terrified shoppers were seen running for their lives from the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre, in the district of Moosach, after hearing gunshots. 

Witnesses said that the gunman screamed 'I'm German' and 'Allahu Akbar' before shooting at children.

A woman named Loretta said she was in the McDonald's when the man with a gun came out of a bathroom and began shooting.

She told CNN: 'I come out of the toilet and I hear like an alarm, boom, boom, boom. He's killing the chidren. The children were sitting to eat. They can't run.

Loretta said she had been in the bathroom at the same time as the shooter, with her eight-year-old son. She said the man yelled: 'Allahu Akbar!'

A huge manhunt has been launched across the city, including snipers in helicopters. Police said they believe there could be up to three gunmen who are on the loose. They issued a warning to people, saying: 'There are shooters on the run who are dangerous.'

Murat T described seeing 'lifeless bodies' in the restaurant when he went to look for his son Orhan's friend. 

Orhan said he heard gunshots while on the phone to his friend, before the call cut out. He said: 'We no longer reach him. Not even his parents. He is like my brother.'  
A video purporting to show the shooter, dressed in black, firing 20 shots has been posted on Twitter. The footage shows him outside the McDonald's directly outside the shopping centre.

In unverified footage, a man with dark hair, wearing a black t-shirt and denim trousers, appears to take aim at people, including children, outside the McDonald's restaurant near the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum metro station.


He raises his arms, apparently holding a shotgun, and appears to fire at people outside the restaurant, who can be seen running for cover.

The sound of multiple shots being fired can be heard as shoppers and passers-by run for cover. People were seen fleeing from the building in another video posted on social media. 

In another video on social media a man can be heard yelling at suspect in the car park that he is a 'w*****' and an 'a******e.' And he yelled: 'Put your gun down.'
The gunman, when he walks across the roof of the car park, shouts out: 'I am a German!'

The man who is abusing him then shouts out; 'You are a w*****!' The gunman tells him to 'shut your trap.' Then he fires more shots and the rest of what is said is unintelligible.  

The area around the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre, in the district of Moosach, has been sealed off as emergency services try to control the situation. Snipers in helicopters are circling the city from above, according to Bild. 

An electrical shop next to the shopping centre is being used as a makeshift hospital to treat the casualties. 
Off-duty doctors and nurses have been summoned to hospitals in Munich, with a hospital spokesperson telling DPA: 'The alarm for a 'mass attack' has been triggered.'
Police have confirmed that there at least eight deaths as a result of the incident and German media have reported there may be up to 15 killed.

'We were first alerted when somebody entered the shopping centre with a weapon and we rushed to the scene. We are doing what we can. The emergency calls that an armed man was on site. All emergency services at scene are for Munich but we are also looking at back up from the region.

'What can I say about the attackers is that up to now there are three that we know of and that is all the information I can tell you at the moment regarding the shooters.
'They used a short handgun or a pistol of some sort, that is what I can tell you.

'We closed down not only that area but the surrounding area. I'm hoping you will share all your information and videos with us as this will give us clues and help us track down the shooters. We are asking people to send in their videos.

Our main priority is the security of the population. This is my first time in such a situation.

'We cant tell more about the situation. All I can tell you is what I've told you so far. We will update you as soon as we can.

'There are a lot of rumours flying around at the moment and all I am saying to you is what I can tell you for sure. We are telling the people of Munich that there are shooters on the run who are dangerous. It is too early for me to make any other comments on the shooters at this stage.

'This is the biggest police operation in the last 10 years that we've had to deal with. You must trust your local police. The Munich police is very well trained. 

'Firearms are a huge problem in this particular incident. We urge people to stay indoors and help us with our work and I'm calling on media to help us carry out our jobs. 

'We've managed to evacuate people from inside and hopefully brought everyone to safety. There are people who have been traumatised by this and I can tell you they are in the double figures.

'We have to treat this as some form of a terror attack as it is an attack with weapons but as to what is behind this we don't know yet.

#We are also watching these videos people have been showing but you must give me time to analyse these properly.'

 A Muslim man set fire to a Coptic young man, murdered his father and wounded his younger brother, after it was rumored that the young Copt allegedly had a relationship with the Muslim man’s sister!!The events took place in the small village of “Dmas” Meet-Ghamr, after a rumor spread around of a relationship between the 25-year-old Copt Shihata Sabri, and the sister of a Muslim man named Yasser Ahmed Qasim.
Yasser went to Coptic Shehata, holding a gasoline canister, poured it over him and set him on fire, as bystanders looked on in horror. The young Copt threw himself into the adjacent canal to try to put out the flames from his burning body. The fire left burns all over his body, leading to his death.
Following this incident, people in the village rallied and when the 60-years-old Sabri Shehata, father of the Coptic victim arrived, he was attacked by a group of Muslims stabbing him with knives and daggers; one stab penetrated his back to come out of his abdomen below the rib cage, resulting in his death, after being transferred to hospital.

Hours After Obama Removes Cuba From Terror Sponsor List, Terror Group Sponsored by Cuba Kills 10

Hours After Obama Removes Cuba From Terror Sponsor List, Terror Group Sponsored by Cuba Kills 10 
 
 As part of his eagerness to change US/Cuban relations, Obama announced on Tuesday that Cuba will be removed from the U.S. State Sponsor of Terror list. But less than a day later a terrorist group that Cuba has long sponsored attacked a military base, killing 10 Colombian soldiers and wounding 17 others.

The Castro brothers are still harboring several wanted members of the group Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), or the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia — People’s Army.
 
Now Obama has coddled up to not only Iran, but Cuba as well, both leading state sponsors of terror. As Ted Cruz states in the video below, Cuba was about to fall, but with Obama’s intervention the Castro brothers dictatorship was thrown a lifeline.

Cruz also states that Obama doesn’t understand the difference between the friends and enemies of the United States. Cruz is obviously being overly PC here…he should call it how he knows it to be true: Obama’s friends and enemies are different than the friends and enemies of the United States.


 Ten Colombia soldiers killed in apparent FARC attack

Ten soldiers were killed and 17 injured in western Colombia Wednesday, in a dawn attack on an army garrison that officials blamed on leftist FARC guerrillas.
The attack occurred in a small town in Cauca province, governor Temistocles Ortega told Blu radio, adding that four of the injured soldiers are in serious condition.
The Cauca region has been a stronghold for the rebel fighters, who are in peace talks with the Bogota government to end more than a half-century of hostilities.
“This is precisely the war that we are trying to end,” President Juan Manuel Santos said on Twitter.
The FARC in December declared a unilateral ceasefire, which it has said was meant to advance the negotiations, which have been under way since November 2012.
The Colombian government last month temporarily halted air raids against the Marxist rebels.
The five-decade-long conflict has killed more than 200,000 people and uprooted more than five million.
Yesterday, in an article titled “Why Cuba Was, And Must Remain, On Terror List,” PJ Media’s Henry Gomez reported that Cuba has not changed its policy of fueling and defending leftist terror whatsoever since they were initially placed on the list. Wrote Gomez:
The Castro brothers continue to harbor international terrorists from Spain’s Basque separatist group ETA and Colombia’s Marxist rebels FARC, as well as American domestic terrorists from groups like the Black Liberation Army.
Nothing has really changed on this front. It’s estimated that 70 U.S. fugitives are being harbored by Cuba, including Joanne Chesimard (AKA “Assata Shakur”), a convicted cop killer.
Apologists for the Castro regime try to argue that Cuba does not meet the criteria of state sponsor of terrorism via technicalities. They insist that the Basque terrorists in Cuba are a matter for Spain to resolve bilaterally with Cuba, and that the FARC terrorists don’t count because Cuba is hosting peace talks between FARC and the Colombian government, and that Chesimard doesn’t qualify as a terrorist because she didn’t kill a civilian, conflating a police officer with a member of uniformed armed forces in a declared war.
Needless to say, the straws they grasp at paint no more of a flattering picture of the totalitarian dictatorship they defend, which is in its sixth decade.
Gomez is correct in his description of the apologists’ behavior as “grasping at straws.” Harboring terrorists matches the qualifications required for the list, as this act was specifically included in every yearly report dating back to Cuba’s being placed on the list in 1982. 


Cuba was designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1982. Reports in 2012 suggested that the Cuban government was trying to distance itself from Basque Fatherland and Liberty (ETA) members living on the island by employing tactics such as not providing services including travel documents to some of them. The Government of Cuba continued to provide safe haven to approximately two dozen ETA members.
In past years, some members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) were allowed safe haven in Cuba and safe passage through Cuba. In November, the Government of Cuba began hosting peace talks between the FARC and Government of Colombia.
There was no indication that the Cuban government provided weapons or paramilitary training to terrorist groups.
The Cuban government continued to harbor fugitives wanted in the United States. The Cuban government also provided support such as housing, food ration books, and medical care for these individuals.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has identified Cuba as having strategic anti-money laundering/combating the financing of terrorism deficiencies. In 2012, Cuba became a member of the Financial Action Task Force of South America against Money Laundering, a FATF-style regional body. With this action, Cuba has committed to adopting and implementing the FATF Recommendations.

10-Eye-Opening Quotes From Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger

margaretsanger4 
 Lauren Enriquez   Mar 11, 2013 
 
 Margaret Sanger has been lauded by some as a woman of valor, but a closer look reveals that Planned Parenthood’s audacious founder had some unsavory things to say about matters of race, birth control, and abortion. An outspoken eugenicist herself, Sanger consistently promoted racist ideals with a contemptuous attitude.
margaretsanger4Read on to learn why 

Planned Parenthood hides behind a false memory of Sanger, and why, despite her extraordinarily prolific writing career, one rarely sees her quoted by Planned Parenthood leaders and apologists.
The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.

Woman and the New Race, ch. 6: “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.” Here, Sanger argues that, because the conditions of large families tend to involve poverty and illness, it is better for everyone involved if a child’s life is snuffed out before he or she has a chance to pose difficulties to its family.
[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.

Article 1. The purpose of the American Baby Code shall be to provide for a better distribution of babies… and to protect society against the propagation and increase of the unfit.
Article 4. No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit…
Article 6. No permit for parenthood shall be valid for more than one birth.

Give dysgenic groups [people with “bad genes”] in our population their choice of segregation or [compulsory] sterilization.

Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.

We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities.  The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
