A few stories we missed while arguing about the Cruz-Carson nontroversy

February 5th, 2016 | No Comments

While hours were wasted on the Cruz-Carson nontroversy, all sorts of things happened.

In politics:
Ted Cruz’s campaign raised $3 million dollars since the Iowa caucus.

Jimmy Carter back-handedly endorsed Cruz.

Ben Carson’s campaign is cutting 50 staff jobs.

Here’s just how unlikely Hillary Clinton’s 6-for-6 coin-toss victories would have been.

Speaking of Hillary, she wants to keep her security clearance during the congressional inquiry on her egregious security violations while she was Secretary of State.

The State Department announced Friday that it would not release 22 e-mails from Clinton’s private server after a review found they contained information designated as top secret. U.S. officials who reviewed the e-mails tell us they contain the names of U.S. intelligence officers overseas, but not the identities of undercover spies; summaries of sensitive meetings with foreign officials; and information on classified programs like drone strikes and intelligence-collection efforts in North Korea.

Which in turn takes us to this, The Democrats’ New Game: State Goes Back and Retroactively Classifies Emails Sent to Powell’s and Rice’s Personal Accounts, So They Can Say “Everybody Does It”.

Pres. Obama visited a mosque for the first time he’s been in office. The locale, the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB), has been under FBI surveillance since 2010.

The National Debt Just Blew Past $19 Trillion.

The Chicago Stock Exchange Says It’s Being Sold to Chinese-Led Group. Let’s hope they keep GAAP rules, but I shudder to think of corporate espionage opportunities.

A Capt. Louis Renault moment: The NYT thinks Ted and Marco are not Latinos because open borders activist Jorge Ramos (whose daughter works for Hillary’s campaign) says they “forgot their own roots.” Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim (also pro-open borders) reportedly became the largest shareholder of New York Times Co (NYT.N) after exercising warrants to double his stake in the publisher to 16.8% last year.

Obama pledges more than $450 million aid to help Colombia peace plan. The FARC-Colombian government deal will effectively legalize the narco-terrorist organization’s activities.

The Palestinian Authority is opening an embassy in Brazil’s capital. It will be the PA’s first embassy in our hemisphere.

The First Shipment of Crude Oil from United States Arrives in Venezuela.

Zika May Change Latin America’s View on Abortion

ISIS fighters in Libya surge as group suffers setbacks in Syria, Iraq.

And one for the “no crap, Sherlock,” file: German spy agency says ISIS sending fighters disguised as refugees.

So, can we please start to focus on the issues, rather than on these nontroversy distractions?
