http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/24/us/politics/appeals-court-rules-targeted-killing-memos-can-stay-secret.htmlA federal appeals court ruled in a decision unsealed on Monday that the Justice Department could continue to conceal internal documents related to targeted killings in the fight against Al Qaeda.* TARGETED KILLINGS OF... AMERICAN CITIZENS?A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit forced the Obama administration last year to reveal a secret memo that authorized the killing of the American-born terrorist leader Anwar al-Awlaki. But the new ruling, handed down in October, makes it unlikely that the suit will yield much else in the way of public disclosures.* I'M ALL FOR KILLING TERRORISTS - INCLUDING AMERICAN TERRORISTS... HOWEVER... I'M ALSO IN FAVOR OF EXECUTING SERIAL KILLERS AND INDEED MANY OTHER CRIMINALS... AFTER THEY'VE BEEN TRIED AND CONVICTED.* FOLKS... WHEN WE'RE TALKING AMERICAN CITIZENS... SHOULDN'T THERE BE SOME SORT OF LEGAL PROCEDING... EVEN IF IT HAS TO BE A TRIAL IN ABSENTIA?* FOLKS... THE CONSTITUTION COVERS TREASON. WHAT THE CONSTITUTION DOESN'T ALLOW IS THE PRESIDENT OR HIS OFFICIALS SIMPLY DEEMING AMERICAN CITIZENS TARGETS FOR ASSASINATION - LET ALONE EXECUTION AFTER CAPTURE - ABSENT TRIAL AND CONVICTION. (NOR DOES OUR CONSTITUTION ALLOW INDEFINATE DETENTION/IMPRISONMENT OF AMERICAN CITIZENS ON "SUSPICION.")* AGAIN... FOLKS... I'M TALKING ABOUT AMERICANS... (WHAT HAPPENS TO NON-CITIZENS... THAT'S A DIFFERENT ISSUE AND FRANKLY I'D GIVE THE PRESIDENT BROAD LEEWAY TO MAKE THESE DECISIONS - WITH CONGRESS HAVING APPROPRIATE INPUT.)A three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in New York, ruled unanimously that the government could keep secret about 10 documents regarding targeted killing operations against non-citizens abroad because the details of American legal policy and standards on that issue remained classified.* FINE! AGAINST "NON-CITIZENS."
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2015/11/21/cancel-the-debate-cnn-caught-selectively-editing-trumps-muslim-comments/CNN has been caught red-handed selectively editing Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s comments about a “Muslim registry,” and doing so in order to make it sound as though he is agreeing to this registry. He is not.The edited video is yet another lying log on the left-wing garbage fire that is CNN, and yet in just three weeks, this very same garbage fire is hosting the next Republican presidential debate!What exactly does CNN have to do in order to lose its right to depose these candidates for two hours in front of the whole world? If CNN is already maliciously editing video to “take out” out the frontrunner, I don’t even want to speculate.Courtesy of Gateway Pundit, watch the CNN video. Pay special attention to the sneaky edit just before Trump says “absolutely”:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v76MIe5gs8CNN intentionally edited the video to make it look as though Trump said “absolutely” to a Muslim registry. What CNN edited out is in bold: Reporter: Should there be a database system that tracks Muslims who are in this country? Trump: There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it. But right now we need to have a border, we have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen any longer.Reporter: Is that something your White House would like to implement?Donald Trump: I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.Trump’s “absolutely” is clearly in reference to strengthening the border. Look at the whole transcript. When the NBC News reporter asks, “Is that something your White House would like to implement?,” Trump has just talked about fortifying the border and obviously believes that is what the NBC reporter is referring to.CNN edited that out!

NOT BEEN PLACED ON UNPAID ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE... BUT INSTEAD BEEN PROMOTED!The Inspector General's report chronicles how Graves tricked and strong-armed a lower ranking VA official into accepting an unwanted transfer, leaving a vacancy that Graves then took. That new job, according to the report, “resulted in significant decrease in job responsibilities,” but retained her annual salary at $173,949.(*PURSED LIPS*)Graves refused to testify about her conduct in front of Congress earlier this month. She invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination repeatedly when questioned by the Congressional panel.* SEEMS TO BE A PATTERN WITH OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS...
