Hillary’s Book Price Gets Slashed

from One News Now:

Before former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s book launched and appeared on shelves of bookstores across the United States, Amazon and Walmart cut the price of What Happened – her new memoir designed to inform paying Americans why and how she lost to her Republican rival for the White House, now-President Donald Trump.

Conservatives have tagged the Tuesday-released book as just another way for Clinton to vent and blame everyone but herself for blowing the 2016 election.

“It’s on the shelves – the comprehensive guide to not taking responsibility for an election loss by two-time presidential loser Hillary Rodham Clinton,” Townhall’s Matt Vespa announced. “Sure, she says the loss was on her, and that she will live with that for the rest of her life, but remember – James Comey, the media, Russia, sexism, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders are all to blame for torpedoing her presidential dreams.” read more

Obamaphone Program Still equals Waste, Fraud and Abuse

from One News Now:

Former President Barack Obama’s controversial “Obamaphone” program – which is still having taxpayers foot the bill for cellphones for the poor – has been exposed as being riddled with fraud, as reports indicate that more than one out of three enrollees were not qualified to receive “free” phones … phones they could afford.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released the report on Thursday shedding new light on Obama’s free cellphone program to the poor – officially called the “Lifeline Program” — which is raising more concern about the giveaway that has become a symbol of the former administration’s frivolous government waste. read more

Podcast – This is What We Do About the Out of Control Courts

We’ve all heard too many times, that the federal courts are out of control. They’ve stolen power from the Congress and the president and are effectively holding the country hostage to their whims.

What we haven’t heard is what to do about. What can we the people, or the Congress, or President Trump do to take from the courts that which is not theirs in the first place. And that’s the problem. We hear constantly that Congress has the Constitutional authority to pass this or that law, or that President Trump is well within his Constitutional power to write such and an order. But then the courts stop it. Then what? Then nothing – apparently.

Well this has to end and I have a couple of suggestions to facilitate that end. read more

$22 Million – The Cost of Policing Loony Protesters

Protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline continue, but you’d never know about the cost for policing those protests after watching some news coverage.

Planned Parenthood is back in the news. Hooray! They took a well-deserved hit after the videos emerged of just what an awful place it is and how awful some of the people who run these places are. Unfortunately not enough of a hit, as they are still in business.

But now, with eugenist-loving Hillary Clinton running for president, Planned Parenthood is preparing its triumphant comeback. Not just to defend its vile practice, but actually promote it as part of Hillary’s campaign. Hooray again!

OneNewsNow (ONN) reports that, “While Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards proclaimed to an Ohio crowd on Wednesday [10/05] that it is an ‘exciting thing’ to hear women ‘tell their abortion stories’ to help promote the procedure, the abortion giant also announced it is launching a $30 million army to storm the country campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

Wow – I know I’m very excited to hear some good-ole `round the campfire abortion stories. Maybe Cecile can record them as childrens’ bedtime stories. That would be great – you know – get the little girls started early. read more

Cleveland – Give it a Rest … Room

from: OneNewsNow

Women and men in the city of Cleveland will soon be charged with $1,000 criminal fines for voicing a problem or discomfort about a person of the opposite sex using their restrooms. This also goes for businesses that express customers’ uneasiness over a person of the opposite sex visiting the inappropriate (or non-traditional) restroom. Cleveland schools must abide by the ordinance.

Cleveland’s recently proposed and reviewed “transgender-inclusion bathroom and locker room ordinance” is not the first of its kind, as Houston and numerous other cities have also visited or enforced measures that award local residents the special right to use whatever facility they choose, regardless of their natural gender.

City officials behind the new law argue that those opposed to the ordinance need to wake up and adjust to the so-called going trend of society.

As key sponsors of the “public accommodations” section of the legislation affecting private businesses, Councilmen Matt Zone and Joe Cimperman stress that the new law was created to grant transgender people the choice to visit any restroom they choose to cater to whatever whim they have — regarding their gender identity issues. read more

America is the Problem – Not ISIS

from: OneNewsNow

An author and terrorism expert says he is not surprised that students at one of America’s most prestigious universities would claim America is a bigger threat to world peace than the radical terrorist organization ISIS.

That was indeed the response from Harvard students interviewed by a blog known as Campus Reform.

“American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power,” one student was quoted on the blog. read more
