HILLARY CLINTON has her sights firmly set on the White House, but her super-wealthy political foes are hatching a massive $500 million plot to destroy that dream!
In a blockbuster world exclusive, The ENQUIRER has learned that the “dirty tricks” campaign is aimed at wrecking the 2016 presidential campaign of the 66-year-old former first lady.
Sources say operatives are digging up details on at least eight Hillary “secrets!”
They will also try to use a variety of evidence to rip the covers off Hillary’s torrid love affairs with both men and women, according to insiders
“Super-wealthy Anti-Clinton Factions are willing to spend half a billion dollars between them to find out what Hillary has been hiding,” revealed a top political source.
“With that huge bankroll, conservative groups with underground operatives believe they can amass evidence that will ruin Hillary’s chances of becoming our first female president.”
President Obama will correct a historical act of discrimination next month when he awards the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest commendation for combat valor, to a group of Hispanic, Jewish and African-American veterans who were passed over because of their racial or ethnic backgrounds.
The unusual presentation will culminate a 12-year Pentagon review ordered by Congress into past discrimination in the ranks and will hold a particular poignancy when conducted by the nation’s first African-American president.
Only three of the men, two Hispanic-Americans and one African-American, are still alive, and will come to the White House for the ceremony March 18.
WASHINGTON — The White House said on Wednesday that it would release later in the day a report of a presidential advisory committee that issued more than 40 recommendations about how to alter the National Security Agency’s data gathering at home and abroad.
The announcement by the White House press secretary, Jay Carney, came just after President Obama met with the five members of his review board in the Situation Room, where they explained a series of recommendations that one official described as “significantly more far-reaching than many expected.”
According to officials familiar with the report, the advisory group called for continuing the bulk collection of data about telephone calls, but moving it to private hands, a process that officials say could take several years. Some members of the group also favored splitting command of the N.S.A., which conducts surveillance, from the United States Cyber Command, the Pentagon’s cyberwarfare unit, to avoid concentrating too much power in the hands of a single individual. But Mr. Obama has rejected that approach.
The report is also highly critical of some of the N.S.A. practices that have most angered technology companies, like the agency’s effort to make sure that the government can gain access to all encrypted communications, and the purchase by government agencies of information about previously undiscovered flaws in common software, especially Microsoft Windows, that could be exploited by government hackers.
Rush Claims the left wants to destroy Christmas, Ignores the Fact That Most US Liberals Celebrate It
Here’s the audio from Media Matters of Rush Talking about the Left’s “War On Christmas” which I can prove beyond reasonable doubt does not exist.
Okay, Than Mr. Limbaugh why do so many people On the American Left Celebrate Christmas? These don’t look like people who “hate Christmas”
President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Celebrated it.

See that big Christmas tree in front of the capital building only a few years ago?
Senators argued over Christmas and no it wasn’t over whether or not we should celebrate it, but whether or not they should stay to get more important work done. Via politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com
Wow looks like Obama and his family really “hate” Christmas. Why aren’t other liberals complaining if they really want to destroy the holiday, eh Rush?

Also why do we hear about things like this
Happy Holidays From the Democrats. No matter What Holiday You Celebrate and that includes Christmas
The Senate Democrats have also set up a “Capital Christmas Tree Webcam”

Hardly sounds like the left has an anti Christmas agenda does it?
Of course many leftwing non Christians Americans don’t celebrate Christmas, but that hardly constitutes a war on Christmas by the left or even those leftists that don’t celebrate the holiday. You’d then have to also ignore the small number of conservative Americans who also don’t celebrate Christmas. Rush and the “War On Christmas” nonsense have been debunked yet again, as if it hadn’t been already. I could have even done a much better job if I wanted to really take my time with this.
Is Syria concealing the full extent of the chemical weapons in its possession? A report published on Tuesday by CNN alleged that the US is currently examining new intelligence which may indicate that the Bashar al-Assad regime may not declare its chemical weapons arsenal in full, and may possess a hidden stockpile of chemical weapons past the conclusion of the efforts to destroy such weapons.
The report, which quoted several US officials, indicated that US intelligence agencies, the US Department of Defense, State Department and the White House are going over the intelligence, and an effort is currently underway to obtain more information so as to fully recognize the efforts being carried out by the Assad regime.
According to a US official quoted in the report, while the intelligence being examined is not conclusive at this point, “there are information threads that could shake our confidence - things have been done recently which indicate that Syria is not ready to see all of its chemical weapons destroyed.”
WASHINGTON — The White House asserted Sunday that a “common-sense test” rather than “irrefutable, beyond-a-reasonable-doubt evidence” makes the Syrian government responsible for a chemical weapons attack that President Barack Obama says demands a U.S. military response.
As part of a major push to win the backing of a divided Congress and skeptical American public, Obama’s top aide made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows to press the case for “targeted, limited consequential action to deter and degrade” the capabilities of Syrian President Bashar Assad “to carry out these terrible attacks again.”
At the same time, chief of staff Denis McDonough acknowledged the risks that military action could drag the U.S. into the middle of a brutal civil war and endanger allies such as Israel with a retaliatory attack.
The U.S. is “planning for every contingency in that regard and we’ll be ready for that,” he told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
The U.S., citing intelligence reports, says sarin gas was used in the Aug. 21 attack outside Damascus, and that 1,429 people died, including 426 children. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which collects information from a network of anti-regime activists, says it has so far only been able to confirm 502 dead.
The Syrian government denies responsibility, contending rebels were to blame.
OPPOSITION to the “dumb war” in Iraq helped win Barack Obama the White House and secured him a Nobel peace prize without trying. The president is now learning the loneliness of the war leader, as he prepares a reluctant America for military strikes on Syria, with—or, he hinted—without formal backing from Congress.
Mr Obama triggered rancorous debate in Washington after making a surprise announcement on August 31st that he wanted congressional approval for strikes against Bashar Assad’s regime, in response to nerve-agent attacks that left more than 1,000 dead. Though congressional support is far from guaranteed, and opinion polls show that Americans oppose air strikes on Syria (see chart), Mr Obama declared that action to prevent future uses of chemical weapons was necessary.
“I do think that we have to act,” the president said during a brief visit to Sweden on his way to a G20 summit in St Petersburg. If resolutions and condemnations were the only response to Mr Assad’s use of chemical weapons, he suggested, it would signal that international norms could be flouted “with impunity”.
It was a week of ironies. Mr Obama has been a reluctant warrior over Syria, insisting that American intervention risked doing more harm than good. He went to Congress to make his opponents take shared responsibility for any decision to strike in the Middle East, or to leave the Assad regime unpunished.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said again this morning that President Obama’s resolve on the debt ceiling is firm:
“What we need in our economy is some certainty. We don’t need another self-inflicted wound,” Lew said in a “Squawk Box” interview. “Congress should come back and they should act.”
….The president is “not going to be negotiating over the debt limit,” Lew told CNBC. “Congress has already authorized funding, committed us to make expenditures. We’re now in a place where the only question is, will we pay the bills that the United States has incurred?” Answering his own question, Lew stressed there can be no question about that.
As part their budget-reduction strategy, Republicans have been trying to repeal and defund the president’s health-care law. But Lew said the White House won’t accept any delay or defunding of Obamacare.
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the use of chemical weapons in attacks on civilians in Syria last week was undeniable and that the Obama administration would hold the Syrian government accountable for a “moral obscenity” that had shocked the world’s conscience.
In some of the administration’s most strident language yet, Mr. Kerry accused the Syrian government of cynically seeking to cover up the use of the weapons, rejected its denial of responsibility for a “cowardly crime.”
Mr. Kerry’s remarks, in a prepared statement he read at the State Department, reinforced the administration’s toughening stance on the Syria conflict, which is now well into its third year, and he suggested that the White House, in consultation with America’s allies, was moving closer to a military response.
“The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity,” Mr. Kerry said.
“Senators have reached a bipartisan deal to restore lower interest rates on student borrowers,” The Associated Press reports, citing “Republican and Democratic aides who insist on anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the ongoing negotiations by name.”
According to the wire service, “the breakthrough came Wednesday, one day after lawmakers huddled with President Barack Obama at the White House. Lawmakers are expected to vote as early as Thursday on the deal that would lower rates before students return to campus.”
NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell tweets that there is a “framework of rates fix deal in place. Senators still negotiating lots of complicated details in package.”
