If this story is true we might have our second official Republican candidate for President in a couple of weeks: Marco Rubio is planning an event scheduled for April 13th where he will make a big announcement. Here is more:
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio confirmed Monday that he plans to make a big April 13 announcement — likely his presidential bid and likely at the Freedom Tower, an iconic Miami building known as the Ellis Island of the South.
“We haven’t reserved a specific site yet … I won’t confirm that,” Rubio said on “The Five,” one of Fox News’ most-watched talk shows. “But I will announce on April 13 what I’m going to do next in terms of running for president or the U.S. Senate.”
One of the hosts, Dana Perino, quickly followed up: “So you will announce that you’re running for president?”
“I’ll announce something on April 13th,” Rubio responded. “If people want more detail, they can go on marcorubio.com and then they can gain access to both tickets [to] our events, and I’ll give them more detail about it. But I’m looking forward to it.”
It seems highly unlikely to me that Marco Rubio would build up this type of hype, and promote selling tickets to the event, if he was going to announce anything other than his intention to run for President in 2016. But of course we will have to wait and see.
Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium
Many of us on the right have claimed for years that the mainstream media has a liberal bias but there is one news network that is more obvious than the others and that would be MSNBC. In fact their bias is so blatant, in my opinion, that I have dubbed the network the propaganda arm of the Obama regime and of the Democratic party.
So when MSNBC runs a segment which is semi-critical of a Democrat, such as Hillary Clinton, I think it is newsworthy and that is what happened today. An MSNBC panel was discussing the former Secretary of State and the email scandal she has become embroiled in and they actually admitted that by wiping her personal email server clean it showed a “consciousness of guilt,” or, if you prefer, she had a “guilty conscience.”
Here is how it went down:
According to this story the Department of Injustice is defending Hillary Clinton from a FOIA subpoena sought by Freedom Watch in an attempt to force her to release the emails she wrote as Secretary of State on her personal email server.

The Justice Department is defending former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from a motion to subpoena her private emails under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
“Such action is unnecessary and inappropriate under FOIA,” DOJ officials wrote in a legal briefing filed Thursday. Officials were responding to a case launched by Larry Klayman, the founder of the conservative watchdog group Freedom Watch.
Klayman is asking the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to subpoena Clinton’s computer server where she housed the private email address she used while serving in the State Department.
Clinton has turned over 55,000 pages of emails that she believed could be considered official government communications, but she deleted 30,000 emails that she considered to be personal.
The Justice Department describes Klayman’s call for a subpoena as “speculation” in its brief.
“Plaintiff provides no basis, beyond sheer speculation, to believe that former Secretary Clinton withheld any work-related emails from those provided to the Department of State,” the agency says.
John Boehner and the establishment elites within the Republican party have a history of punishing conservatives who dare to disagree with the leadership. John Boehner is especially well known for this in conservative circles: he has previously removed conservatives from key committee positions in 2012 for not falling in line; in 2013 he fired the top conservative in the Republican Study Committee; and again last year he punished those that dared to vote against His Excellency for Speaker of the House.
And now, if Ted Cruz is telling the truth, we can add his name as well as Mike Lee to the list of conservatives who have been punished by the establishment Republican leadership. It is not a secret that the establishment was very upset at these two people who actually tried to make good on their campaign promises instead of just paying them lip service as do the rest of the Republicans in Washington, but for the first time Ted Cruz has let us know how upset they really were.

It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!
Now on to the musical selection of the week: A couple of weeks ago I shared the first audio sample released from Muse’s upcoming new CD entitled “Drones.” That song was entitled “Psycho” and now the first single has hit the airwaves. This song is called “Dead Inside” and I happened to find a video of the first (and as far as I know, the only) time the band performed has this song live to date and here it is. It is an audience recording but the audio and the video are sill pretty good.
Did Hillary Clinton use her personal email server to set up what might amount to a secret spy ring to gather intelligence in Libya before the Benghazi terrorist attack which left Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods dead?
That is what is being speculated in this article, here is more:
In my post about Harry Reid’s announcement that he was going to retire and would not be running for reelection in 2016 I speculated that this might be due to the recent Department of Homeland Security Inspector General report which was released two days before the Senator from Nevada announced his decision.
The report found that Harry Reid used his political position and power to pressure the Department of Homeland Security into expediting visas which freed up $115 to a client of his son Rory. I found the timing to be a remarkable coincidence!
Now Breitbart has taken the speculation even further. Here is more:
