Flashback to 2009: Elena Kagan testified “There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage”

Pants on fire...
...Kagan’s 2009 testimony before the Senate during confirmation hearings on her nomination to be Solicitor General.
In the course of that testimony, Kagan stated:
“There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage”
Hey, she is a liberal. it's OK for them to lie if it advances their cause. 

Cowardly Republican leaders skip #Obamatrade signing ceremony...

Boehner and McConnell are an embarrassment to the Republican Party...

Via The Washington Times:
President Obama signed hard-fought trade legislation Monday, thanking Republican leaders who helped get it done and saying the package will “reinforce America’s leadership role in the world.”
“I think it’s fair to say that getting these bills through Congress has not been easy,” Mr. Obama said as he signed the trade bills into law in the East Room. “They’ve been declared dead more than once.”
The two major pieces of legislation grant Mr. Obama “fast track” trade-promotion authority, which allows the president to negotiate a deal and submit it to Congress for an up-or-down vote without the chance for amendments, and expand aid for American workers who lose their jobs due to foreign competition. Members of both parties attended the bill-signing ceremony, although Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky did not, with Congress on its Independence Day recess.

Hillary Clinton tampered with evidence by editing out sections of emails turned over to State department?

The sections withheld didn't relate to wedding dresses or yoga poses. Paging the Justice Department.
Hillary Clinton withheld Benghazi-related emails from the State Department that detailed her knowledge of the scramble for oil contracts in Libya and the shortcomings of the NATO-led military intervention for which she advocated.
Clinton removed specific portions of other emails she sent to State, suggesting the messages were screened closely enough to determine which paragraphs were unfit to be seen by the public. …
Clinton selectively edited other portions of emails she declined to provide to the State Department.
For example, in July 2012, Clinton removed paragraphs from a Blumenthal memo that warned “simply completing the election…and fulfilling a list of proper democratic milestones may not create a true democracy.” Blumenthal also wrote — in sections that Clinton deleted before providing the document to State — that the government would likely be “founded on Sharia,” or Islamic laws.
The group advocating to implement Sharia, Ansar al-Sharia, is a designated terrorist group that played a role in the Benghazi attacks.
But Clinton hid how much she knew about that development.

Secrets: State Department won't release contents of Obama-Clinton phone call night of #Benghazi attack...

The contents aren't classified. They just don't want you to know what they discussed. This could be when they conjured up the YouTube video lie...

Via FOX News:
New documents released by a federal court show President Obama called then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the night of the 2012 Benghazi attack -- but the contents are being withheld by the State Department.
It had previously been disclosed that Clinton and Obama spoke the night of the terror attacks. But the documents offer additional information about the timing of the call -- after the initial attack on the U.S. consulate, but before the second wave where mortars hit the nearby CIA annex and killed former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.
The contents of the call, however, are being withheld, not because the information is classified but because the administration claims they represent internal deliberations about the 2012 terror assault.
The claim comes as Clinton also faces accusations that she withheld Benghazi-related emails from her private server in the trove of emails handed over to the State Department.

Bernie Sanders has a cure for #SCOTUScare: Medicare for all...


Via Mediaite:
Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning that he would move for a “Medicare-for-all, single payer” health care system, though he acknowledged that this was not an immediately practical goal.
“We need to join the rest of the industrialized world,” Sanders said. “We are the only major country on earth that doesn’t guarantee health care to all people as a right, and yet we end up spending much more than they do.”
“So I do believe that we have to move toward a Medicare for all, single-payer system,” Sanders said, adding that he had “certainly voted for” the ACA. “It’s not going to happen tomorrow, but that certainly should be the goal.”

Confederate Flag Supporters Lose NASCAR...

Game over...

Via FOX Sports:
With the nation debating the legacy of the Confederate flag, NASCAR fan-favorite Dale Earnhardt Jr. offered his thoughts Friday, saying "it belongs in the history books."
"I think it's offensive to an entire race," Earnhardt said during his media availability at Sonoma Raceway. "It belongs in the history books and that's about it."
Earlier this week, NASCAR issued a statement reaffirming its position against using the Confederate flag in any official capacity.

Strange: U.S. BLM is demanding Burning Man organizers provide them Choco Tacos, M&Ms, licorice and Chobani Greek Yogurt

Munchies anyone?
(RGJ)- Choco Tacos, M&Ms, licorice and Chobani Greek Yogurt are just a few of the food items officials for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management are demanding Burning Man organizers provide them at this year's festival, according to documents obtained by the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Those demands by the BLM, unprecedented in Burning Man's history, have turned into a point of contention as organizers negotiate with the agency for their annual permit to stage the event in the Black Rock Desert this summer.
Burning Man officials have pushed back against the BLM, saying the demands are excessive and that they cannot meet all of them.
"BLM is not significantly increasing its staffing this year and it appears to (Black Rock City) that some of these additional requests are above and beyond what is needed under regulatory requirements for BLM to administer to permit," Burning Man wrote in a response to the BLM requests obtained by the RGJ.
