CNN altered picture of mixed race Oregon shooter to make him look white?

Color me shocked.
On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media. On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him.  Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast?  Why is no-one showing pictures of mom, Laurel Margaret Harper.

New Hillary Clinton claim: She is the "most transparent person in American history"

I spit my coffee because when I here Hillary utter this lie. No one ever claimed Hillary didn't have 'chutzpah.'

Hillary on Benghazi Committee: "If I were president...I would have done everything to shut it down.”

No doubt. After all, what difference does it make our Ambassador and three other Americans were killed. That's nothing compared to electing a Democrat in 2016.

Via Buzzfeed:
Her campaign has called the House Select Committee on Benghazi a “taxpayer-funded sham,” a “Republican hit-job,” and an investigation designed to drive down poll numbers and play “electoral politics with a terrorist attack.”
On Monday, at a televised town hall here in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton said as much and then some: She argued that the committee was set up “for the sole purpose of going after me”; she accused Republicans of exploiting the deaths of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi attacks; and she said that, were she serving as president, she would’ve tried to dismantle such a committee.
“This committee was set up as they have admitted for the purpose of making a partisan, political issue out of the deaths of four Americans,” Clinton said in a live town hall with about 70 voters, hosted by NBC News. “I would’ve never done that. And if I were president, and there were Republicans or Democrats who were thinking about that, I would have done everything to shut it down.”

Ben Carson demands IRS revoke CAIR's tax exempt status...

CAIR engaged in politics by demanding Ben Carson withdraw. Don't expect much from Obama's politicized IRS. Now, If this were a tea Party group and the demand came from Bernie Sanders...

Via BPR:
Presidential contender Ben Carson‘s conflict with CAIR is getting hotter since Carson’s headline-making interview about a potential Muslim president.
The retired neurosurgeon on Saturday demanded that the IRS crack down on the Council on American-Islamic Relations for violating regulations that restrict the political involvement by groups that claim non-profit status.
The IRS has shown no problem with attacking conservative groups on much flimsier grounds during the Obama era.
It’s largely faded from the headlines, but the IRS targeting of conservative groups is one of the many “phony scandals” that have dogged the Obama administration. In an email on Saturday, Carson demanded that the IRS treat CAIR the way it treated conservative groups — with much less reason.
“The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held a public press conference demanding that I withdraw from the presidential race,” Carson observed in an email announcing a petition to remove CAIR’s tax-exempt status, according to The Hill.
“Here’s the catch – CAIR is a tax-exempt nonprofit, and the IRS rules explicitly prohibit such groups from intervening in political campaigns on behalf of – or in opposition to – a candidate,” the email continues.

Leaked: Obama's Workout / Putin's Workout (This is embarrassing)

This is embarrassing.

Rasmussen: Only 22% of GOP voters want McConnell to stay as Senate Majority Leader.

I am surprised the number is that high. 

Via Rasmussen
It looks like Republican voters are ready to clean house when it comes to the party's top two congressional leaders.
Following John Boehner’s sudden decision to step down as speaker of the House of Representatives, 46% of Likely Republican Voters think Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also should resign. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 22% of GOP voters don’t think the longtime Kentucky senator should step down as majority leader, but a sizable 32% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
If you wonder why outsiders are dominating the GOP presidential primaries, just check the above picture for understanding.
