Protests in Baghdad throw administration’s Iraq plan into doubt - The Washington Post
And in recent days, the administration had been optimistic, despite the growing political unrest in Baghdad, about that critical partnership.
But that optimism — along with the administration’s strategy for battling the Islamic State in Iraq — was thrown into severe doubt after protesters stormed Iraq’s parliament on Saturday and a state of emergency was declared in Baghdad. The big question for White House officials is what happens if Abadi — a critical linchpin in the fight against the Islamic State — does not survive the turmoil that has swept over the Iraqi capital.
The chaos in Baghdad comes just after a visit by Vice President Biden that was intended to help calm the political unrest and keep the battle against the Islamic State on track.

Byron York: In state after state, strong GOP support for Trump's Muslim proposal | Washington Examiner
by Byron York • 4/27/16
What was once furious Republican opposition to Donald Trump's proposal to temporarily ban foreign Muslims from entering the U.S. has turned to virtual silence in the face of widespread GOP voter approval.
Exit polls from the nation's biggest Republican primaries show impressive majority support for Trump's proposal. In the latest example, in Pennsylvania Tuesday, 69 percent of GOP voters said they support "temporarily banning Muslims who are not U.S. citizens from entering the U.S." In New York last week, the number was 68 percent.
In Wisconsin, 69 percent supported Trump's idea. In Florida, 64 percent. Georgia, 68 percent. Ohio, 65 percent. Michigan, 63 percent. New Hampshire, 65 percent. Texas, 67 percent.

Obama administration fails to screen Syrian refugees' social media accounts - Washington Times
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Concerns over refugee screening spurred Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, on Tuesday to cancel his state’s cooperation with federal authorities trying to resettle Syrians.
With a little more than five months left in the fiscal year, the government is 8,370 refugees short of its goal. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill say they fear the administration will reduce screening even more to speed up the process. To meet the president’s target, immigration officials would have to approve about 75 applications every workday for the rest of the fiscal year — nearly seven times the average so far.
“What is far more important than the arbitrary number of 10,000 is whether these refugees can be properly screened. If the answer is no, which is obviously the case given testimony by the FBI director and homeland security secretary, then we should not let a single one into the country,” said Rep. Vern Buchanan, Florida Republican.

Harriet Tubman: $20 Bill Change Honors American Hero
In fact, Harriett Tubman was a gun-toting, Jesus-loving spy who blazed the way for women to play a significant role in military and political affairs.
Indeed, her work on the Underground Railroad was mostly a prelude to her real achievements. Born into slavery as Araminta Ross, Tubman knew the slave system’s inhumanity firsthand: She experienced the savage beatings and family destruction that were par for the course. She eventually escaped and, like most who fled, freed herself largely by her own wits.
She later went back south — always carrying a gun she wasn’t afraid to use — to help guide her own family and many others out of the plantations. The courage and will that this took is difficult to fathom. But she’s really a secondary figure in the history of the Underground Railroad. Historians estimate that she led 300 or so people to freedom, while figures like William Sill and Levi Coffin helped bring freedom to thousands.

Climate Deal Forecast: Frost for the U.S. Economy, Slush Funds for the Planet | PJ Media
By Claudia Rosett - April 23, 2016
One of the best catalogues of human folly is the 19th century book by Charles MacKay, "Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds." MacKay chronicles a host of scams, superstitions and mass frenzies, including the South Sea Bubble, Tulipomania, Alchemy and Witch Mania. To this roster, some future historian may someday add the full tale of the early 21st century Climate Mania, in which a throng of politicians, United Nations bureaucrats, film stars and whatnot promised that if they were just given enough power over our use of lightbulbs, cars, planes, ships, oil, gas, electricity and energy in general, they would -- for the greater good of mankind, mind you - arrange to control to within a few decimal points the temperature of the planet.
For the moment, however, this is not history we are talking about. We are stuck in the acute phase of Climate Mania. This Friday, "Earth Day," brought the signing ceremony at the UN's New York headquarters of the Paris Agreement on "Climate Change." More than 170 nations signed on, including such curators of human progress and enlightenment as North Korea, Sudan, Cuba and Iran. Actor Leonardo Di Caprio spoke from the podium of the General Assembly chamber. Secretary of State John Kerry brought his infant granddaughter, and held her on his lap while he signed the accord. UN leaders planted a tree in the UN "Food Garden."
General Ban Ki-moon called it "an historic day" (everything these days is "historic") and told the assembled eminences, "The era of consumption without consequences is over" (if that's true, then surely one of the first things to go should be the UN itself, complete with the recent $2 billion-plus makeover of its NY offices -- except the UN has always enjoyed immunity from its own pronouncements).
For all the hoopla, the Paris accord is not yet a done deal. But it soon may be. For this agreement to enter into force, at least 55 countries, accounting for 55% of "global greenhouse gas emissions," must now sort out on the national level how they plan to comply, and deposit their instruments of ratification with the UN. Fifteen have already done so.

Saudi Influence in Washington Must End | Frontpage Mag
If we are going to have any hope of defeating the global jihad.
Responding to a bill that would allow 9/11 victims’ families to sue governments linked to terror attacks inside the U.S., the Saudis have acted like neither an ally nor an innocent party: they’ve threatened to sell $750 billion in U.S. asserts, vividly demonstrating why their influence in Washington is so detrimental.
Nonetheless, they still have a friend in Barack Obama, a man who has never hesitated to reach out in friendship to those who threaten the United States. Obama is trying to get Congress to reject the bill, and his solicitude for the Saudis is drawing criticism even from members of his own party. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called on him to release the 28 pages: “If the president is going to meet with the Saudi Arabian leadership and the royal family, they think it would be appropriate that this document be released before the president makes that trip, so that they can talk about whatever issues are in that document.”
The New York Daily News, normally a reliable Democratic Party organ, fumed: “If the President allows himself to get pushed around this way in front of the world, then he earns every bit of the anger being directed at him by the extended family of September 11.”

Surveillance video released Wednesday captures the last moments of a popular hotel cocktail server who was punched and knocked unconscious, landing in a Near North crosswalk. The footage also shows more than a dozen bystanders failing to come to his aid in the nearly two minutes before a cab accidentally drives over him.
Marques Gaines, 32, died at an area hospital after the incident about 4:20 a.m. Feb. 7 outside a 7 Eleven store in the 400 block of North State Street.
Especially troubling for Gaines' family was that bystanders didn't help as he lay in the crosswalk. At least one person believed to be a 7-Eleven employee called 911. Others walked past him without trying to pull him out of the street or block traffic.
Within seconds of the punch, a half-dozen people gathered around Gaines, including two men who appeared to have rifled his pockets. Gaines' family said his cellphone and debit card were stolen. After a minute, the group and his attacker left the scene and as seconds ticked away, individuals and groups of people walked by Gaines without trying to pull him out of the street.

A PR Nightmare | The American Spectator
By Scott McKay – 4.19.16
If you’re like most Americans, what you know about the Puerto Rico debt problem is what you’ve seen on the nearly ubiquitous cable news commercials warning that “the politicians” are going to “bail out Puerto Rico” and its left-wing government by “robbing Americans of their savings.” This, because there is a bill being kicked around in the House Natural Resources Committee that would allow for a restructuring of some $70 billion in government debt the island territory has run up over the years. The bill in question is being pushed by House Speaker Paul Ryan and a number of other Republicans, but it’s being assailed on both sides.
Essentially the bill, titled the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA), is a cramdown. It would put a commission together that would seek to force Puerto Rico to reform its fiscal policies — the island’s government is an avatar of Latin American leftist waste and corruption, particularly personified by its staggering $4 billion K-12 public education spending and thoroughly mismanaged government-monopoly power company. The bill would also impose a haircut on the bondholders by allowing Puerto Rico to access Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcy laws in large part. Several major Wall Street hedge funds helped accelerate the island’s debt crisis by snapping up $3.5 billion in bonds Puerto Rico floated in 2014, after its
debt had been downgraded to junk status.
From a Republican perspective, the question is whether the cramdown favored by Ryan is a better option than the “let it burn” stand favored by Rep. John Fleming (R-Louisiana). In a Daily Signal piece last Friday, he warned that a debt restructuring for Puerto Rico will only pave the way for a similar debt default by irresponsible governments on the mainland.

In testimony before Congress Tuesday, a Maryland sheriff said amnesty for minors has led to increased gang crime and warned that without a secure border every county will be a “border county.”
“Open borders, reckless sanctuary policies, and failure to enforce our immigration laws have greatly impacted public safety and national security throughout every jurisdiction of this country. Every single day, more Americans are becoming victims of senseless crimes, being injured and killed by criminal aliens, many are transnational gang members,” said Sheriff Charles Jenkins of Frederick County, Md.
Frederick County is about 40 miles from Washington, D.C. Jenkins said that his cooperation with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) through the Department of Homeland Security’s 287(g) has helped rid his county of many illegal aliens.
“I see this America government scrambling over themselves to pretend to care about American families and instead you give away every bit of America to people who have broken our laws entering this country,” she added. “Then on to break other laws.”Mother of Son Murdered by an Illegal Breaks Down in Tears Before Congress, Begging for Immigration Enforcement - Breitbart

John Kasich Is Kind of a Jerk and MSNBC Loves Him | PJ Media
By Stephen Kruiser April 18, 2016
John Kasich has always been a guy who can't go five minutes without getting frustrated that he's not the tallest, smartest or most handsome guy in the room and lashing out at the nearest person. Sadly, drunk Ohioans keep voting him into positions of power where he can act out a lot. He did, however, try to clean up us act earlier in the year and attempt to learn some social skills. Sure, it was just to get votes but, hey, baby steps.
Well, that didn't last long.
John Kasich is getting tired of people saying he doesn’t have a path to victory (even though, well, he really doesn’t), and he snapped a bit at a reporter today who pointed that out to him.At least Ted Cruz is being honest about working a second-ballot strategy for the convention right now, but Kasich has a bad case of the Jebs and mistakenly thinks his appeal at home translates to the rest of America.
Remember, Kasich has only won one state so far, and that was his home state of Ohio.
When a reporter pointed out to Kasich that he’s only won one state, the Ohio governor insisted that polls show only him defeating Hillary Clinton.
The reporter attempted to press him again and Kasich said, “Can I finish? I’m answering the question the way I want to answer it.”
Kasich got so irritated, he took the recorder out of the reporter’s hand, sarcastically asked “what do you think?”, and handed it back.
Well, there is one place outside of Ohio that loves America's most notoriously petulant mailman's son: the MSNBC studios...

Rules of the GOP Fraternal Order | The American Spectator
Rule Two: Unless you want to change the rules to preserve the Ruling Order.
The other day, a surely very nice guy who was identified as a former Colorado Republican Party Chairman appeared on CNN to discuss the latest state of play in the Trump-RNC dust-up. Among other things he dismissed concern over Colorado’s rules for selecting delegates by saying that they had been in place since… 1912.
Uh-oh. In saying this the ex-chairman clearly unwittingly opened a door that makes Donald Trump’s
point about GOP Establishment-types monkeying with the rules, and makes it more or less exactly. Why? Well, hop into the time traveling machine and come with me back to, yes, 1912.
The Republican Party is in absolute turmoil. President William Howard Taft is in the White House, the protégé of his predecessor and old friend President Theodore Roosevelt having won the White House four years earlier after TR declined to run for a third term. But now? Teddy Roosevelt is upset with his old friend. It seems Will Taft has turned out to be a tad more conservative than the trust-busting TR approved. OK, actually a lot more conservative. And so TR, more than furious, has plunged headlong into the presidential race, directly challenging Taft for the GOP nomination. Also in the race was a third candidate: the liberal Wisconsin Senator Robert LaFollette.
They battle across the country, with Roosevelt winning 9 of 12 states that had primaries. But the rest of the then-48 states had no primaries. And as the Chicago Convention approached, the delegate numbers stood this way ...

Peter Frumhoff of the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Climate Accountability Institute’s Matt Pawa spent 45 minutes each providing talking points behind the scenes on “the imperative of taking action now” and “climate change litigation,” according to a cache of emails released over the weekend by the free market Energy & Environmental Legal Institute.

Where the Streets Have No Jokes (cont) :: SteynOnline
by Mark Steyn - Steyn on Europe -
Max Miller, the "Cheeky Chappie" of Britain's music hall, liked to say that the great thing about comedy was that it was the only job where if you're really bad at it nobody laughs at you. The dead hand of the demographically exhausted German state is taking it to a whole other level:
The German government has approved a criminal inquiry into a comic who mocked the Turkish president, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced.You can take the girl out of East Germany, but you can't take the East Germany out of the girl. In the Eighties, Angela Merkel, was a board member of the FDJ - the "Free German Youth", the kiddie wing of the one-party state - and the local secretary in charge of "agitprop". So she has a deep understanding of how art and even humble jokes must serve the needs of the regime - in this case, kissing up to the new sultan:
By law, the government must approve any use of an article of the criminal code on insulting foreign leaders.
Mrs Merkel stressed that the courts would have the final word.
Chancellor Angela Merkel's government granted Turkey's request to proceed with legal action against a German satirist who derided President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, risking a domestic backlash over freedom of expression.There's no end of grim soundbites in her press conference today. How about this one?
"We're allowing this because we are confident of the strong justice system in our state," Merkel told reporters in Berlin Friday.
"In a country under the rule of law, it is not up to the government to decide," Merkel said. "Prosecutors and courts should weight personal rights against the freedom of press and art."Bog off, tosser. A free society does not threaten a guy with years in gaol for writing a poem.

"Decisions must be made on facts alone. Much is at stake here -- people's trust in the Bureau for years to come, as well as the Bureau's reputation among our allies, partners, and friends as the greatest law
enforcement agency in the world,” wrote John F. Good, president of the Long Island Chapter of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI.
Good told Fox News a half-dozen FBI agents who worked the 1978 ABSCAM investigation – which targeted sitting members of Congress -- belong to the chapter. The ABSCAM investigation included more than 30 political figures, with six House members and one U.S. senator ultimately convicted of crimes. The investigation was depicted in the 2013 Golden Globe-winning movie "American Hustle," in which Bradley Cooper played an agent based on Good and others.
Good, 79, told Fox News by phone that the Clinton email case boils down to whether the U.S. is a nation of laws, where all citizens are equal under the law, or there is a different set of rules for the powerful. He said the ABSCAM agents thought it was important to show support for the bureau’s work in the email probe since they know what it feels like to face intense public scrutiny.

’60 MINUTES’: Lawmakers Say Redacted Pages Of 9/11 Report Show Saudi Official Met Hijackers In LA « CBS Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Lawmakers are calling on the White House to declassify more than two dozen pages in the 9/11 Commission report that they say outlines evidence for possible support from the Saudi government for two hijackers who settled in Southern California.
