IRS Lois Lerner lost emails were all Backed-up

(Washington, DC)Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding recent sworn declarations made by IRS officials in response to Judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s continuing investigation into the missing emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials, which have been the subject of longstanding Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. IRS (No. 1:13-cv-1559)):

Contrary to Judge Sullivan’s specific orders and the law, the Obama administration persists in obstructing the truth about “missing” emails from Lois Lerner and other IRS officials. Judicial Watch will press its concerns on Monday, August 25, before U.S. Magistrate Judge John Facciola, who was appointed by Judge Sullivan to manage and assist in discussions between Judicial Watch and the IRS about how to obtain any missing records. Magistrate Facciola is an expert in e-discovery.

Judge Sullivan, in his earlier ruling, appointed Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola to manage and assist in discussions between Judicial Watch and the IRS about how to obtain any missing records from other sources. Magistrate Facciola is an expert in e-discovery, and authorized Judicial Watch to submit a request for limited discovery into the missing IRS records after September 10.

Government Watchdog Says IRS Lawyer Admitted Lois Lerner’s ‘Lost’ Emails Were Backed Up

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told FoxNews Monday that attorneys for the IRS have admitted that all of the supposedly lost emails from former IRS employee Lois Lerner are backed up, and that the IRS has not admitted this because they say it would be too hard to dig them out of these backed up files.

Poll: Obama Job Approval on Economy worse than GW Bush

PRINCETON, NJ — Throughout his second term, President Barack Obama’s overall job approval rating has exceeded his approval ratings on both the economy and foreign affairs, arguably the two most important areas of focus for presidents. Obama’s 36% approval rating for handling foreign affairs and 35% approval on the economy in Gallup’s Aug. 7-10 poll, compares with a higher 44% overall job approval rating in the same poll.

Obama’s job approval rating has been a bit lower — averaging 42% in Gallup Daily tracking — since that Aug. 7-10 poll, which was conducted as the U.S. commenced airstrikes against Islamic militants in Iraq.

That Obama’s overall approval rating is higher than his ratings on foreign affairs or the economy is evidence he is getting a more positive review from the public than would be expected given his ratings on the two major issues. This is a change from his first term, when his average overall approval rating (50%) matched his average foreign affairs approval rating, but still exceeded his economic approval rating (41%).

All these ratings are lower for Obama in his second term than in his first term, but his average foreign affairs rating has dropped more than his economic approval rating or his overall job approval rating.

Gallup regularly began measuring presidential approval for handling the economy and foreign affairs during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Since then, there have been different patterns in how these measures compare for the various presidents. For some, like Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, the patterns varied across the presidents’ two terms.

Looking at the last nine presidential terms, three basic patterns emerge in how Americans rate the president on the economy and foreign affairs

Battleground Ferguson, Missouri

Truth and accuracy mean nothing to the left as they use every possible tactic to instigate racial unrest and violence in the embattled town of Ferguson, MO. There where black youths take each other’s lives with a frightening frequency and yet blame whites for their self-created dilemmas, the battle cry of the liberal utilizes hatred and racism as a substitute for well-informed insight.

Sanctioned urban conflict

Let’s bring back the hatred of decades ago so that the antics of the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons of today will seem relevant again! How can we possibly be nostalgic over the racism of the past? Answer. No one in their right mind would be, but for the race baiters like AG Eric Holder who just sent 40 FBI agents to Ferguson in an obvious attempt to politicize the results of an investigation that has been delayed by insurrection orchestrated by the Obama White House as the city burns.

How the left rolls

Remember Communist regimes rise after organizing the insanity of social unrest by using false narratives and demonizing the innocent as class warfare, racism, and propaganda overtake rational thinking and truth. In Ferguson we have an argument against militarizing local police as they are told to stand down while being bombed by Molotov cocktails as supposed medical students from the esteemed medical university nearby take part in burning down the city and looting. Now the very governor who loathes police using military surplus hardware has called in the National Guard. What a coincidence!

Ignoring the truth

Even though the initial autopsy report showed Michael Brown, the alleged victim who was supposedly assassinated by a policeman, as having frontal entry wounds from the six bullets that killed him, false allegations now claim that the unarmed black youth was hit from behind and had already surrendered. Why

Sen. Casey: Foley Beheading ‘Just a Preview’

Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), the Co-Chair of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Terrorism Caucus argued that the beheading of American journalist James Foley was “just a preview” of what ISIS is capable of. “It’s very important to push back aggressively, and with a really determined focus, against ISIS. because they’re not just having great success on the ground in Iraq, but the beheading of Mr. Foley is one indication, and I’m afraid, just a preview, of what they would do to other Americans, and others around the world if they’re not aggressively confronted” he said on Tuesday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC.

Casey also argued, “I think the steps that the president has taken today have been very prudent, making sure when we have an interest, in this case, pushing back on ISIS and their brutal efforts to not only take over Iraq, but also to do everything they can to have kind of one country between Iraq and Syria. I think the air strikes were appropriate, and I think the intel. and the targeting has been appropriate.”

He also warned of the threat of American citizens joining ISIS, stating “we have to pay attention, not just to what happens in Syria and Iraq, but have to pay attention to efforts here in the United States that lead to radicalization, and then an individual goes across the world and engages in terrorist acts around the world, sometimes, against Americans.”

Iran Claims to Have Shot Down, Captured Israeli Drone

Iran claims it used a missile to shoot down an Israeli drone near the Natanz nuclear enrichment site “185 miles south of… Tehran.”

No word was issued as to when the drone was allegedly shot down or how Iran knew it was from Israel.

According to BBC News, “Natanz is Iran’s main uranium enrichment site, and contains more than 16,000 centrifuges.” Iran’s Revolutionary Guard claims the Israeli drone “was on course to fly over the nuclear facility” when it was shot down.

Israel has refused comment on the claim, but it should be noted that this is not the first time Iran has alleged the capture of a drone from Israel or the U.S.

On December 7, 2012, Breitbart News reported Iran’s claim to have “captured” a U.S. ScanEagle drone. The Revolutionary Guard said the drone crossed into Iranian airspace and was captured. They claimed to have recovered information from the drone showing it was being used to spy on Iranian “military installations and oil terminals.”

In February 2013, USA Today published video Iran “allegedly extracted” from a RQ-170 Sentinel drone, which Iran claimed to have captured in 2011.

“American officials” confirmed that Iran had in fact captured the RQ-170 Sentinel. Those officials asked Iran to give it back, but the Iranians said no.

Gary Peters Plays Both Sides of Energy Debate for Dollars

Gary Peters Plays Both Sides of Energy Debate for Dollars

Thanks to recent financial disclosures, Michigan Congressman and Senate candidate Gary Peters has been caught playing every side of the energy debate in ways that benefit his campaign coffers, as well as his own pocket.

From here, it only gets worse for Peters. He may as well simply hang a “For Sale” sign around his neck and be done with it. There’s some history below that makes this even worse for Peters.

Gary Peters has been a vocal critic of oil companies while continually blocking the expansion of drilling throughout his political career, including ANWR. In addition, his campaign has made environmental issues a top focus of the Michigan Senate race this year.

With this in mind, Peters’ financial disclosure paints a different picture as reports indicate he has a large investment in the French oil company, Total S.A. France. According to their website, they are the fifth largest publicly-traded integrated international oil and gas company in the world. Peters’ connection to a large French oil company raises some eyebrows considering his staunch stance as a defender of environmental interests here in the United States.

Total S.A. France holds interests in 21 refineries around the world, including the United States, Europe, the French West Indies, Africa, the Middle East, and China.

Flashback to May and a “secret meeting” with “Democrat money man Tom Steyer” and one begins to appreciate the level of Gary Peters’ duplicity. If there were a third side to the energy debate and it was capable of writing a check, it appears Gary Peters’ would be on that side, too.

But the Peters campaign now faces a potentially devastating ad attacking him for his opposition to the Keystone Pipeline. The ad is noteworthy because it links Peters’

Former NFL QB Competes on ‘The Biggest Loser’

Scott Mitchell looks like he ate Wayne Fontes. The former Detroit Lions quarterback competes on NBC’s Biggest Loser this season. He weighs in at 366 pounds, 33 pounds heavier than the largest lineman on the current Lions roster.

Mitchell faces some soft competition.

The sports-themed season features 483-pound Rob Guiry, the head rugby coach at Western New England University, 283-pound physical education teacher Sonya Jones, and 366-pound Vanessa Hayden, who, until four years ago, occupied a roster spot in the WNBA.

They all let themselves go. Now they’re looking to let the pounds go.

Damien Woody, who won two Super Bowls with the Patriots and now analyzes the NFL for ESPN, tips the scales at 388. That’s just 58 pounds over his playing weight, so dropping a large number of pounds might come harder for the former lineman than it does for his fellow competitors.

The season premieres on September 11.

O’Reilly: Obama a Performance Failure, Not Patriotic Fail

Back in February, in an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly recounted his pre-Super Bowl interview with President Barack Obama. O’Reilly called it the toughest interview of his life, but also said he considered Obama to be a “patriot.”

Shortly thereafter, O’Reilly took criticism for those remarks, but he stuck to them.

On his Wednesday night broadcast, O’Reilly revisited those remarks in responding to a viewer’s email and said he still believes Obama to “patriot” but called his policies a “performance failure” and not a “patriotic failure.”

“Daniel Plum, Cable, WI – ‘O’Reilly, your ‘Talking Points’ continued to prove President Obama is failing as the leader of the free world. Do you still believe he is a patriot?’” O’Reilly said. “I am so glad you asked that question, Dan. When I said that to Jimmy [Kimmel] a few months ago, some on the right got very upset with me. So, here’s the deal. I believe Barack Obama sincerely wants to help the have-nots in America. I believe that. That’s patriotic. But I also believe, based on the facts, that his policies have largely failed to do that and have even brought less prosperity to the poor precincts. That is a performance failure, not a patriotic failure.”

Rosetta probe successfully orbits comet

ESA’s Rosetta probe has made history as the first to orbit a comet, and is set to reach another landmark in space travel if it can successfully land on comet 67P. The Rosetta mission hopes to find information on how comets are affected by the sun, and maybe even to discover if it is possible that life on earth could have been created by a comet hitting the earth.

While the Rosetta mission has been active for over a decade, interest in space travel is receiving more and more press, and international competition in space has spawned a new iteration of the space race, with China’s lunar landing, and Russia’s planned expedition to the moon in 2030. However, this time the players aren’t limited to government ventures, but also venture capitalists.

Billionaires Richard Branson and Elon Musk both have separate space ventures in Virgin Galactic and SpaceX, respectively, and according to results from 1World 84% think private companies are better suited than governments to improve space travel.

Despite the renewed interest in space travel, people are having serious doubts about the feasibility of Mars as a potential Earth colony. Colonizing Mars has long been a staple of science fiction books and movies, and NASA has even developed a saucer-shaped craft to attempt to land on the Red Planet.

Although we have been making serious developments into the final frontier 59% don’t think Mars will be successfully colonized, and 53% would consider travelling to Mars despite the 500 day flight (that’s a lot of in-flight movies). Check out the world map below to see where people are most interested in taking a trip to Mars.
