In a stunning lack of self-awareness, Hillary asks “Why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else?”

Uh, maybe because “everybody else” who’s ever mishandled classified information like you did has gone to prison?

Which, alas, isn’t what she was talking about.

Hillary Clinton pushed back on questions over the transcripts of her paid speeches during a televised Democratic town hall Tuesday, asking, “Why is there one standard for me and not for everybody else?”

The former secretary of state has been criticized for her paid speeches, including three for Goldman Sachs that earned her $675,000. During a town hall in Nevada last week, she said she would release transcripts of the speeches “when everybody else does the same.”

Clinton echoed that promise again during CNN’s town hall on Tuesday, saying she’d release the speeches “if everybody does it, and that includes the Republicans.”

There’s a double standard for her alright, and she knows it. In fact, she’s counting on it. And her media lapdogs will do everything they can to perpetuate it, hoping against hope that they’ll be able to drag her over the finish line and into the White House.

At Rutgers, “inclusion and diversity” means excluding Conservatives

If I was a parent sending his kid to Rutgers I’d consider asking for my money back. Because the students’ idea of “inclusion and diversity” is pretty odd indeed.

Protesters were out in full force Tuesday night during Milo Yiannopoulis’ “Most Dangerous Faggot Tour” stop at Rutgers University, which brought in about 450 students.

Student protesters, reportedly from the group RU Speak Out and other organizations, stood up in the middle of Milo’s speech after one protester screamed, “This man represents hatred!” and then started smearing fake blood all over themselves.

“[Rutgers groups] should not be inviting anyone like Yiannopoulos because what we stand for is inclusion and diversity,” student activist Nyuma Waggeh told The Daily Targum. “If a speaker makes someone feel unsafe or uncomfortable, then they should not come to campus.”

I don’t think “student activist” Nyuma Waggeh understands the definition of the word “inclusion.” She’s probably too busy protesting to attend English class.

But on the plus side, any potential employer who Googles this knucklehead will quickly come to the realization she’s job candidate kryptonite. Of course it’s likely she’s majoring in something useless that ends in “Studies” so the lack of job prospects is already built in, but why take the chance?

 

Chris Christie defends the ineptitude of the TSA

Hot off his 9th place finish in Iowa Chris Christie took his tough guy act to New Hampshire.

During a campaign stop in Epping, New Hampshire on Tuesday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took issue with one man’s complaints about getting through airport security.

He also didn’t try to sugarcoat it.

“You know what else is inconvenient?” Christie asked. “Getting blown up on a plane.”

Except, if you’re expecting the TSA to prevent you from getting blown up on a plane, well, you might want to buy that extra life insurance, just in case.

The Department of Homeland Security said Monday that the acting administrator for the Transportation Security Administration would be reassigned, following a report that airport screeners failed to detect explosives and weapons in nearly every test that an undercover team conducted at dozens of airports.

According to a report based on an internal investigation, “red teams” with the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of the Inspector General were able to get banned items through the screening process in 67 out of 70 tests it conducted across the nation.

Oops.

Take a clue from Schmuckabee Chris. Pull the plug. Come back to Jersey. This isn’t your year.

I’ll take “Dumb Laws Debuting in 2016” for $200 please Alex

In California, what is “Everybody gets a diploma?”

In Illinois, what is “Grow ‘exotic weeds’ such as bush honeysuckle, olive, salt cedar, poison hemlock, oriental bittersweet, teasel, knotweed and giant hogweed?”

In New York, what is “Ban tigers from taking selfies with people?”

In New Jersey, what is “Show photo ID to buy cough medicine?”

And because why should New Jersey have all the fun, in New South Wales, what is “Every bike rider needs photo ID?”

Another reason not to fly: The TSA will no longer let you opt out of full body scanning

The TSA wants to see you naked. And now, you can’t say “no.”

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has deployed Advanced Imaging Technologies (AIT) for operational use to detect threat objects carried on persons entering airport sterile areas. AIT identifies potential threat objects on the body using Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) software to display the location of the object on a generic figure as opposed to displaying the image of the individual. TSA is updating the AIT PIA to reflect a change to the operating protocol regarding the ability of individuals to opt opt-out of AIT screening in favor of physical screening. While passengers may generally decline AIT screening in favor of physical screening, TSA may direct mandatory AIT screening for some passengers.

Because flying isn’t already humiliating enough. And the TSA really needs to know if you’re carrying anything worth stealing.

Get your Federal Drone License by Feb 19, 2016, or pay a $27,000 dollar fine

If you own a drone, or if Santa is putting one under your tree this Christmas, you’d better be aware of Barack Obama’s latest regulatory overreach.

Every drone owner in the United States is required to register for a Federal Drone License by February 19, 2016. Failure to register could result in a penalty of $27,000, and/or 3 years in jail.

The online registration would apply to owners of small drones weighing more than 0.55 pounds and less than 55 pounds, including payloads such as on-board cameras, according to a statement by the FAA.

The new rules would require drone owners to pay a $5 registration fee. Penalties go up to $27,000 for civil violations, $250,000 for criminal acts with up to three years behind bars.

It’s for your own good, of course.

“Make no mistake: unmanned aircraft enthusiasts are aviators and with that title comes a great deal of responsibility,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement. “Registration gives us an opportunity to work with these users to operate their unmanned aircraft safely. I’m excited to welcome these new aviators into the culture of safety and responsibility that defines American innovation.”

Uh huh. Nothing says “innovation” quite like the heavy hand of government.

As in the same “government” that completely botched the Obamacare website rollout. But trust them, the FAA drone licensing website will be totally secure, honest! Just give them your credit card number, your drivers license number, your home address, your social security number, your mother’s maiden name, and probably about 27 other items of personal information, and in return they’ll issue you a shiny little card that says “Official Obama Drone Operator.”

Make sure you renew it every 3 years too. Because once the government gets their claws into you, they never let go.
