  • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch at a confirmation hearing today that the fact that, in support of Planned Parenthood, she had advocated for partial-birth abortion did not "disqualify" her from serving as attorney general of the United States.

    "In 2006, you signed an amicus brief supporting Planned Parenthood's opposition to partial-birth abortion ban; is that correct?" said Graham at Lynch's confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    "Yes," said Lynch, "I was one of a number of former Department of Justice officials [who signed it]."

  • Obama administration Muslim adviser Mohamed Elibiary is no stranger to regular PJ Media readers.

    In September, Elibiary was unceremoniously removed from his fellowship position with the Department of Homeland Security, which he tried to spin as a “resignation,” but letters sent to members of Congress by DHS officials indicated he would not be reappointed.

    Undoubtedly, one of the chief reasons for DHS cutting ties with Elibiary was a long string of extremist statements he had been making on Twitter, including talking about the inevitability of the return of an ISIS-style caliphate — tweets that were subsequently used by ISIS supporters for recruiting purposes.

  • The new GOP majority in the U.S. Senate is turning up the heat on its investigation of allegations the Internal Revenue Service shared private taxpayer information with President Obama, demanding Obama turn over communications he and his staff had with the agency.

    The Washington Times reported it obtained a copy of a letter signed by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and the 13 other Republicans on the panel.

    Addressed to Obama, the letter asks for his communications with the IRS since 2010 for their investigation into whether the agency has been engaging in illegal distribution of private taxpayer information. Republicans have accused the Obama administration of using the IRS as a political weapon since discovering the agency obstructed the applications for tax-exempt status of conservative organizations critical of Obama’s policies.

  • Could it be a grudge they’ve held for 80 years? Or is it simply that communism doesn’t fully support the constitutional right to free speech? Whatever the case, the Communist Party USA is attacking the Koch brothers, Charles and David, the entrepreneurs whose billions of dollars in wealth and conservative vision for the future of the United States have made them a constant bull’s-eye for criticism from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

    Dozens of times Reid has ranted on the floor of the U.S. Senate about the perceived evils of the private business owners and their involvement in the American political process.

    Now, in alignment with Reid’s disdain for the Kochs, the Communist Party USA has issued a solicitation for a petition to knock down the U.S. Supreme Court’s “Citizen United” decision that determined speech in political campaigns cannot be censored arbitrarily.

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is enjoying a surge in the latest opinion polls of Israeli voters. The Jerusalem Post reports that its latest poll shows Bibi’s party, the Likud, is leading the race for the first time in weeks. Other polls agree, and show the Likud leading its rival, the Zionist Union, which is a combination of the Labor and Hatnua parties.

    The Post attributes Netanyahu’s improved showing to the cross-border conflict with Hezbollah, which attacked Israeli soldiers earlier this week, killing two. The attack was a retaliation, likely orchestrated by Iran, for Israel’s strike on a Hezbollah convoy in the Syrian Golan Heights earlier this month, in which an Iranian brigadier general was also killed.

  • Hugh Hewitt gets the scoop. Mitt Romney has told supporters that he will not run for president, citing his desire to give a new group of leaders a chance. “After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I’ve decided it is best to give other leaders in the Party the opportunity to become our next nominee,” he explained in prepared remarks.

    According to the remarks, Romney spent an unusual amount of time talking about his current lead in the polls and his own desire to run again.

    “You can’t imagine how hard it is for Ann and me to step aside, especially knowing of your support and the support of so many people across the country,” he writes. “But we believe it is for the best of the Party and the nation.”

  • The Obama Administration’s actions towards Israel become more intolerable each day, carrying with their insults deeply damaging national security implications for our country.

    Earlier this week, Americans opened the newspapers to discover that the Obama campaign team has deployed operatives, including 2012 Field Director Jeremy Bird, to Tel Aviv to try to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu through an organization that receives taxpayer grants from the U.S. Department of State.

    This follows a long string of hostile behavior that has only escalated with time.

  • Hijab Day happened at a taxpayer-funded charter school in the suburbs of Sacramento on Wednesday, Jan. 28. All female students — but only female students — were encouraged to wear Muslim headscarves.

    The school is Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep in Natomas, Calif., local Fox affiliate KTXL reports.  Wednesday’s “NP3 Hijab Day” in Natomas was a student-organized event. School officials swear they neither encouraged nor stifled it.

    The school and the school district began to receive criticism after Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch publicized a Hijab Day flyer sent to him by a reader.

  • President Barack Obama won’t trim his unilateral amnesty, even by a tiny bit, to get a compromise that would allow bipartisan funding for the Department of Homeland Security, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday.

    “Will the president change that executive action in any way in order to secure funding for the Department of Homeland Security?” a reporter asked Earnest.

    “No, its not going to happen,” Earnest replied.

  • In 2013, John Podesta was paid $87,000 by a shadowy foreign billionaire whose passion is preventing energy exploration on American land.

    Just two years later, Podesta is a member of President Obama’s inner circle, and the driving force inside the White House to block 12 million acres of land in Alaska’s Artic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling.

    The circumstances suggest Podesta may have run afoul of Obama’s highly-touted ethics pledge, which requires political appointees to disqualify themselves in matters relating to the interests of a former employer or client.
