Trump Vows No Third Party Bid, Will Back GOP Primary Winner 5/5 (1)

By: Steve Peoples

NEW YORK (AP) — Caving to intense Republican lobbying, presidential candidate Donald Trump ruled out the prospect of a third-party White House bid on Thursday and vowed to support whoever wins the party’s nomination — a U-turn made easier by his position at the front of the field.

The decision follows weeks of behind-the-scenes efforts by GOP leaders, who’ve been trying to avert the possibility of an independent campaign by Trump ever since last month’s opening debate, when he refused to promise to back the party’s eventual nominee. A third-party bid by Trump, or any prominent conservative, could doom Republican efforts in 2016.

“I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican Party and the conservative principles for which it stands,” Trump said in a news conference at Trump Tower, the gold-hued skyscraper in midtown Manhattan where he launched his surging campaign for president.

The 69-year-old billionaire, who announced his decision after meeting with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, insisted he got “absolutely nothing” for pledging his loyalty “other than the assurance that I’ll be treated fairly.”

In a statement Thursday night, Priebus didn’t mention Trump by name but declared his pride in having all major GOP candidates pledging to support the eventual nominee and then took a swipe at the Democratic front-runner. “We have the largest, most diverse field in the history of either party,” he said. “Any candidate would be a better president than Hillary Clinton and offer the new direction Americans want.”

To the dismay of GOP leaders, Trump has emerged as the overwhelming leader in a crowded field, despite repeatedly insulting key constituencies and offering few details about his policies. The reality television star has described Mexican immigrants as rapists, questioned Sen. John McCain’s war hero status and insulted a popular Fox News host. His refusal during the party’s first debate to pledge his support for the primary campaign winner further roiled the GOP.

The document Trump signed Thursday is a pledge, not a contract. Even if it were legally binding, Trump’s history in contract law is suspect.

When lender Boston Safe Deposit & Trust refused to extend the mortgage on his Palm Beach resort, Mar-a-Lago, he ceased making loan payments until the bank capitulated in 1992.

In his book, “The Art of the Comeback,” Trump proudly recounts forcing his unpaid lenders to choose between fighting him in bankruptcy court or cutting him an additional $65 million check. Afraid of losing their jobs, the bankers folded, Trump says.

On Thursday, Trump insisted he would make good on his commitment to Republicans.

“I see no circumstances under which I would tear up that pledge,” he said.

If not for Trump, the need for a loyalty oath probably wouldn’t exist. There were no doubts about the intentions of the GOP’s other major presidential contenders headed into last month’s debate, and they quickly lined up Thursday to sign the document issued a day earlier by the Republican National Committee.

Doug Watts, a spokesman for retired surgeon Ben Carson, another GOP candidate, said the committee “felt it had to box Trump into a decision.”

“We just sort of shrugged our shoulders, and that’s the end of that,” Watts said.

Despite Trump’s reversal, he succeeded yet again on Thursday in what he has done consistently throughout the race: make the story about him. Even tea party leaders, who’ve been skeptical of the one-time Democrat, commended him on his political skill.

“Trump has once again outmaneuvered the GOP, his fellow candidates and the media,” said Mark Meckler, a co-founder of the tea party movement. “The news is all Donald, all the time.”

The document signed by Trump asked candidates to promise to “endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is.” Further, it demanded that each pledge “that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate, nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party.”

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who angrily challenged Trump at the debate over the pledge, took credit for what he termed Trump’s “capitulation.”

“I spent the last few weeks making sure people knew it was not acceptable to potentially throw the next election to Hillary,” Paul wrote on Twitter, referring to Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

UK’s Former Defense Secretary: The West ‘Surrendered’ to Iran in Nuclear Talks 5/5 (1)

By: Natalie Johnson

The nuclear agreement between Iran, the U.S. and five other world powers merely places Tehran’s nuclear ambitions “on hold” and undercuts the international community’s ability to condemn the regime if it violates the deal, the United Kingdom’s former defense secretary said Thursday.

Liam Fox, a conservative member of Parliament, said the P5+1 “caved” to Iran’s demands by conceding to immediate sanctions relief rather than implementing the West’s original condition of a gradual, rewards-based sanctions lift.

We’ve given everything away at the outset and it’s all predicated on hope, a hope that they will change,” he said.

The $150 billion Tehran is estimated to receive in unfrozen assets, he said, will allow the regime to rapidly update its aging military and civilian infrastructure, calling it “ridiculous” to argue Iran will use most of the money to pay off debts.

Iran’s violent proxies, including Hezbollah, Hamas and the Assad regime in Syria, will also profit from the sanctions relief, Fox continued.

“If [Iran] regarded them as a priority for funding when they were already being very tightly squeezed by financial sanctions, then they’re likely to see them as prime candidates for extra funding when the tsunami of unfrozen assets hits them.”

Given the scope of money Tehran is expected to receive, Fox said the impact of future sanctions would likely diminish over time, expressing “extreme skepticism” of the agreement’s insurance against cheating in the form of snapback sanctions.

Once domestic industrial interests begin to operate and make profits in Tehran, Western governments will find it difficult to reimpose sanctions even if Iran violates the accord, he added.

Fox said the P5+1 negotiators also bowed to Iran’s demands by including an embargo lift on ballistic missile shipments into Tehran in the final accord.

To him, the “greatest surrender” of the international community was in the final inspection requirements, which leave investigations of suspicious sites in the hands of the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency.

“Anything other than totally unrestricted and unfettered access is unacceptable because we all know in light of the Iranians behavior in the past how they manipulate any weakness in the terms of the IAEA’s access.”

He called the agreement a “fulfillment of the Iranians wish list” that was about “politics more than it was about security.”

“Look at the agreement itself, compare it to our initial demands and Iran’s initial demands and see who it ended up being closer to,” Fox said.

Planned Parenthood President: If Feds Won’t Do It, We Need States To Defund Abstinence Programs 5/5 (1)

By:  Eric Scheiner

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, whose organization is arguing states cannot defund Planned Parenthood, said in 2008 that when Planned Parenthood failed to get the federal government to defund abstinence programs, they pushed for the states to do it.

During a Ford Hall Forum in Boston on May 28, 2008, Richards was asked about abstinence-based education: “You said that this teaching of abstinence is 10 years old? And how did that get passed?” a member of the crowd questioned.

“It actually started under the Clinton – as a small program and then what’s happened in the last eight years is it’s grown,” Richards replied.

“Honestly, as with other sometimes federal programs, once it began to grow and there was more money in it, a whole industry sort of, has been created – an abstinence only curriculum and programs and groups that get funded from the federal government to do abstinence only.”

“They now have their own lobby in Congress to lobby for continued abstinence only programming,” Richards continued.

“It’s very hard to end federal programs and that’s why we’ve taken, really focused on the states.”


Ed Note: Cecile Richards is afraid that abstinence will take hold and they will run out of babies to murder and well like car parts to the highest bidder.  This Deva of the Damned wants more babies to abort, violently murder, dismember, and ghoulishly sell off to the myriad of Mengele Institutes around the country.  I wonder if she sits around her cauldron at night feasting on body parts.  What an evil specimen of subhuman darkness. 


“We just need states to continue now to say ‘this is a program that doesn’t work for us and we’re not going to take any more money out of this program. Instead we’re going to redirect our resources of the state to what we think of as important, which is abstinence based but comprehensive sex education for young people.’”

Planned Parenthood has filed lawsuits in Alabama and Louisiana after those states made an effort to cut off Medicaid payments to the organization’s clinics.

In the lawsuit filed in federal court in Montgomery, Alabama, Planned Parenthood accuses the governor of violating a federal law that they say requires Medicaid patients to have their choice of provider to receive family planning care.

IG Report: 300,000 Vets died While Waiting For Health Care At VA 5/5 (1)

By:  FoxNews.com

More than 300,000 American military veterans likely died while waiting for health care — and nearly twice as many are still waiting — according to a new Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general report.

The IG report says “serious” problems with enrollment data are making it impossible to determine exactly how many veterans are actively seeking health care from the VA, and how many were. For example, “data limitations” prevent investigators from determining how many now-deceased veterans applied for health care benefits or when.

But the findings would appear to confirm reports that first surfaced last year that many veterans died while awaiting care, as their applications got stuck in a system that the VA has struggled to overhaul. Some applications, the IG report says, go back nearly two decades.

The report addresses serious issues with the record-keeping itself.

Appreciate the articles you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from TapWires.com, When The Truth Matters

More than half the applications listed as pending as of last year do not have application dates, and investigators “could not reliably determine how many records were associated with actual applications for enrollment” in VA health care, the report said.

The report also says VA workers incorrectly marked thousands of unprocessed health-care applications as completed and may have deleted 10,000 or more electronic “transactions” over the past five years.

 Linda Halliday, the VA’s acting inspector general, said the agency’s Health Eligibility Center “has not effectively managed its business processes to ensure the consistent creation and maintenance of essential data” and recommended a multi-year plan to improve accuracy and usefulness of agency records.

Halliday’s report came in response to a whistleblower who said more than 200,000 veterans with pending applications for VA health care were likely deceased.

The inspector general’s report substantiated that claim and others, but said there was no way to tell for sure when or why the person died. Similarly, deficiencies in the VA’s information security — including a lack of audit trails and system backups — limited investigators’ ability to review some issues fully and rule out data manipulation, Halliday said.

The VA has said it has no way to purge the list of dead applicants, and said many of those listed in the report are likely to have used another type of insurance before they died.

VA spokeswoman Walinda West said Wednesday the agency has publicly acknowledged that its enrollment process is confusing and that the enrollment system, data integrity and quality “are in need of significant improvement.”

Sens. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., chairman and senior Democrat of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, said in a joint statement that the inspector general’s report pointed to “both a significant failure” by leaders at the Health Eligibility Center and “deficient oversight by the VA central office” in Washington.

The lawmakers urged VA to implement the report’s recommendations quickly to improve record keeping at the VA and “ensure that this level of blatant mismanagement does not happen again.”

As of June 30, VA has contacted 302,045 veterans by mail, asking them to submit required documents to establish eligibility, West said. To date, VA has received 36,749 responses and enrolled 34,517 veterans, she said.

“As we continue our work to contact veterans, our focus remains on improving the enrollment system to better serve veterans,” West said.

The Health Eligibility Center has removed a “purge-and-delete functionality” from a computer system used to track agency workloads, West said. VA will provide six months of data to demonstrate that any changed or deleted data on VA workloads has undergone appropriate management review, with approvals and audit trails visible, she said.

Cheney: Obama’s Motive to ‘Make Iran Dominant Force’ in Middle East 5/5 (1)

By: Greg Richter

President Barack Obama’s goal in the Iran nuclear deal appears to have been to make Iran the top power in the Middle East, former Vice President Dick Cheney told Newsmax TV. 

“[T]he only way to interpret it and what his motives were was he really wanted to boost Iran’s position in that part of the world and make them the dominant force at the expense of our allies,” Cheney said Wednesday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

Obama’s ideology “doesn’t fit reality,” Cheney said, especially in regard to the Middle East, he said.

Cheney said the only winner in the nuclear agreement is Iran, “in terms of having a path ultimately to develop a nuclear weapons, in terms of receiving over $100 billion, sanctions being lifted, the embargo on ballistic missiles being lifted, the embargo on conventional arms being lifted.

“They get everything in this deal and the Israelis and the Saudis and the Jordanians, the Egyptians, the Emirates, all of our friends and allies in that part of the world are appalled with what happened,” he said, “but they also feel directly threatened by a nuclear-armed Iran.”

Republicans should have treated the deal as a treaty so they would have had to get a two-thirds majority of the Senate to pass rather than as it stands, requiring a two-thirds majority to override a promised presidential veto.

In addition, Democrats plan a filibuster that would prevent an up-or-down vote with names attached to how they voted.

“That’s a total neutering … of the United States Senate in one of the most important issues that’s likely to come before them in this decade,” Cheney said. “I do not understand why they’ve allowed that to happen.”

The former vice president under George W. Bush is co-author with his daughter Liz Cheney of the new book, “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America,” published by Threshold Editions.

Wash. Post: Ex-State Dept. Worker to Plead Fifth Before Benghazi Panel 5/5 (1)

By:  Todd Beaman

A former State Department employee who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server tried to beat back a subpoena this week from the House Benghazi panel, with his lawyer saying that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights to avoid incriminating himself.

Bryan Pagliano had worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009, The Washington Post reports.

“While we understand that Mr. Pagliano’s response to this subpoena may be controversial in the current political environment, we hope that the members of the Select Committee will respect our client’s right to invoke the protections of the Constitution,” MacDougall wrote.

Two other Senate panels have also sought testimony from Pagliano in the past week, the letter stated. Sources told the Post that they were the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Homeland Security Committee.

The Judiciary Committee confirmed to the Post Wednesday that it had subpoenaed Pagliano.

South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the Benghazi committee, had subpoenaed Pagliano on Aug. 11, ordering him to appear on Sept. 10, the Post reports.

The chairman also sought documents relating to the servers or systems controlled or owned by Clinton from 2009 to 2013.

Pagliano worked in the State Department’s information-technology department from May 2009 until February 2013. He left when Clinton stepped down.

He now works for a technology contractor that provides services to the State Department, the Post reports.

The Benghazi committee’s top Democrat, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, slammed Gowdy for unilaterally issuing the subpoena.

He told the Post that pursuing a low-level aide was another indication that the chairman was using the committee for political purposes amid Clinton’s run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Judge Rules Against NFL In ‘Deflategate’ Brady To Play 5/5 (1)

By: TapWires News Service

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge deflated “Deflategate” Thursday, erasing New England quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for a controversy that the NFL claimed threatened football’s integrity.

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went too far in affirming punishment of the Super Bowl winning quarterback. Brady has insisted he played no role in a conspiracy to deflate footballs below the allowable limit at last season’s AFC championship game.

The written decision frees Brady to prepare for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The ruling was a surprise to some legal experts who believed Berman was merely pressuring the league to settle when he criticized its handling of the investigation and discipline over the last eight months.

The league brought the scandal to Berman’s Manhattan courtroom immediately once Goodell upheld Brady’s four-game suspension, blasting the quarterback for arranging the destruction of his cellphone and its nearly 10,000 messages just before he was interviewed for the NFL probe. The union countersued, said Brady did nothing wrong and asked the judge to nullify the suspension.

While the league investigation found it was “more probable than not” that two Patriots ball handling employees deliberately released air from Patriots game balls at January’s 45-7 New England victory over the Indianapolis Colts, it cited no direct evidence that Brady knew about or authorized it.

Goodell, though, went beyond the initial investigation report, finding in late July as a result of testimony from Brady and others that the quarterback conspired with the ball handlers and tried to obstruct the league’s probe, including by destroying his cellphone.

The commissioner said he concluded Brady “knew about, approved of, consented to, and provided inducements and rewards” to ensure balls were deflated.

Berman attacked the league while questioning one of its lawyers at two hearings, citing a lack of proof against Brady and asking how Goodell settled on a four-game suspension instead of other discipline.

He warned the league that he had the authority to overturn its punishment of Brady if he found the NFL acted unfairly by refusing to deliver NFL Executive Vice President Jeff Pash as a witness even though he worked on the NFL investigation.

Berman’s ruling does not necessarily end the dispute. The league can appeal.

Berman had repeatedly urged both sides to settle and tone down their rhetoric. At a hearing Monday attended by Brady and Goodell, the judge announced that both sides had “tried quite hard” to reach a deal in morning talks. But the case was left for him to decide.

As they negotiated, the sides attacked each other in court papers.

In one August court filing, the union said the four-game suspension displayed “a clearly biased agenda – not an effort at fairness and consistency,” and it criticized Goodell’s ruling upholding the suspension as a “smear campaign,” a “propaganda piece written for public consumption.”

In its papers, the NFL said there was “ample support” in evidence for the commissioner to conclude Brady was involved in efforts by the Patriots equipment personnel to deflate footballs.

Teen Girls Revolt Over Transgender In Locker Room ‘I Think This Is Pure And Simple Bigotry’ 5/5 (1)

By: Douglas Ernst

Almost 200 students at a Missouri high school don’t care if transgender student Lila Perry identifies as a female — they want the senior to use the boys locker room.

“Boys needs to have their own locker room. Girls need to have their own locker room and if somebody has mixed feelings where they are, they need to have their own also,” Hillsboro High School student Jeff Childs told KMOV-TV, the local CBS affiliate on Monday.

Perry, who wants to use the girls locker room, turned down the school’s offer to use a gender-neutral bathroom. The senior has identified as a girl since age 13.

“I am [a] girl. I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom,” Perry told the station. “There’s a lot of ignorance. They are claiming that they’re uncomfortable. I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry.”

Watch KMOV-TV’s coverage of the dispute:

A small group of about 40 students joined a counter-protest in support of Perry.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch asked the high school’s administrators for comment but were referred to Superintendent Aaron D. Cornman. He would not comment on the issue, but did release a written statement.

“[The district] respects the rights of all students and appreciates the fact that the students we are educating are willing to stand on their belief system and to support their cause/beliefs through their expression of free speech,” Corman’s statement said, the newspaper reported Tuesday.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to Meet with Donald Trump to Discuss ‘Loyalty Pledge’ 5/5 (1)

By: Alex Marlow and Stephan K. Bannon

A source with knowledge of these matters has confirmed to Breitbart News exclusively that, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will meet with Donald Trump “at Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan tomorrow afternoon to discuss the ‘loyalty pledge‘” to the Republican party.

The source also tells Breitbart News that requesting candidates to sign a pledge has been a topic of discussion and internal debate the the Republican National Committee for several weeks.

Politico reported earlier today that the RNC planned a pledge that was designed to “force the front-runner’s hand after his ref”:

The Republican National Committee on Wednesday privately reached out to GOP presidential candidates to ask whether they’d be willing to sign a pledge stating they would not run as an independent candidate in the event they fail to win the Republican nomination in 2016.

Want The Best Of The Web All In One Spot? Sign up for free news alerts from TapWires.com, When The Truth Matters

The move is an implicit challenge to Trump, who pointedly refused to rule out a third-party run during the first GOP debate. He was the only candidate who declined.

The language of the draft pledge speaks directly to the issue vexing Republicans – the possibility that the billionaire could choose to wage a third party bid if he fails to win the GOP nomination, a prospect that could seriously damage the GOP’s prospects of reclaiming the White House. Tapping into deep anti-establishment animosity among the conservative grassroots, Trump has surged to the lead of the deepest presidential field in recent memory. If Trump were to pull just a fraction of the vote as an independent, write-in or third party candidate, it could be enough to sink the eventual Republican nominee.

Iran General: Military Buildup Won’t Stop Until ‘Full Annihilation and Destruction’ of Israel 5/5 (1)

By:  Jordan Schachtel

A senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Commander (IRGC) stated Wednesday that Iran will not stop building up its military until Israel is annihilated.

The United States and Israel “should know that the Islamic Revolution will continue enhancing its preparedness until it overthrows Israel and liberates Palestine,” Iranian Brigadier General Mohsen Kazzemeini said Wednesday, while leading military drills in Tehran, according to Iran’s state-run Fars News.

“And we will continue defending not just our own country, but also all the oppressed people of the world, specifically those countries that are standing on the forefront of confrontation with the Zionists,” he added, likely referring to Iran’s consistent support of terrorist groups Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Assad regime in Syria.

He said that the only way to deal with Israel “is full annihilation and destruction of the Zionist regime.” Kazzemeini encouraged Palestinians to continue the “armed struggle against Tel Aviv,” according to the Fars News readout.

Kazzemeini spoke in the midst of military drills that involved some 250,000 personnel, the report stated.

The General’s comments came on the same day that members of Iran’s Basij militia took to the former U.S. embassy in Tehran and proceeded to set fire to the flags of the United States, Britain, and Israel. The militia members were at the embassy to celebrate the unveiling of a plaque on the former U.S. embassy fence that displayed 100 derogatory terms to describe the U.S., according to an AFP report.

The Fars News report also recounted the recent statements of Iran’s theocratic leader, Ali Khamenei, who told a crowd in Tehran last year, “The armed resistance by the Palestinians is the only way to confront Israel,” according to the report. Khamenei’s statement follows a mid-August call for the Islamic world to “combat the plans” of the West “with jihad for the sake of Allah.”

Separately, on Wednesday, the Iranian nuclear deal reached the number of commitments in Congress needed for President Obama to veto a motion of disapproval without having to worry about the possibility of it being overturned, with

Liberal Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) stating that she would vote to approve the nuclear deal.
