FBI reveals existence of documents related to Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting after they tried to hide them

The Blaze - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 10:07

The FBI has “uncovered” documents related to the June 2016 Arizona tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, despite previously claiming documents about the rendezvous didn’t exist.

What happened?

Lawyers for the FBI revealed the existence of the documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act Request from government watchdog group Judicial Watch. The new development comes after the FBI previously told the group that no documents related to the June 27, 2016, meeting existed.

However, through a separate FOIA request, the Justice Department revealed that some of its officials had been in contact with FBI officials about the infamous meeting, and were seeking “guidance” about how to properly respond.

It was only after the Justice Department released its documents did the FBI acknowledge that it had documents that Judicial Watch’s FOIA request sought. “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist,” the FBI said.

So far, the FBI has not revealed the contents of the documents, only that 30 pages exist.

How did Judicial Watch respond?

In response, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton lambasted the government for the “stunning” development.

He said: “The FBI is out of control. It is stunning that the FBI ‘found’ these Clinton-Lynch tarmac records only after we caught the agency hiding them in another lawsuit. Judicial Watch will continue to press for answers about the FBI’s document games in court. In the meantime, the FBI should stop the stonewall and release these new records immediately.”

Fitton added in a video that this revelation is a “scandal” and said he believes the FBI was “hiding” the documents.

When will the documents be released?

The government has until Nov. 30 to review and release the documents to Judicial Watch pursuant to the FOIA request. The FBI will likely wait until that day to release the documents.

Why is this significant?

The revelation is significant because it shows the government was potentially attempting to hide something that the public has the right to know. But it’s also significant because the infamous tarmac meeting came just days before the Justice Department announced it would not pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her private emails scandal.

Lynch and President Clinton denied discussing Hillary’s pending case, but many believe that’s what the meeting was intended for, especially since the existence of the meeting was never suppose to be made public. It’s likely that what Clinton and Lynch discussed will never be truly known, but government records about the meeting may shed light into whether or not something illegal or unethical took place.

Gun-control measures in Colorado and Washington about as effective as you’d expect

HotAir - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 10:01

Three years after a hard push for gun control nearly cost Democrats control of Colorado, a new study suggests that they shouldn’t have bothered. The Guardian reports on curiously limited research published in the medical journal Injury Prevention that calculated the impact of harsher state-based background check requirements. The study concludes that in Colorado, Washington, and Nevada, the laws had little effect on increasing the number of background checks:

In Colorado and Washington state, advocates spent millions of dollars, and two Colorado Democrats lost their seats, in the effort to pass laws requiring criminal background checks on every single gun sale.

More than three years later, researchers have concluded that the new laws had little measurable effect, probably because citizens simply decided not to comply and there was a lack of enforcement by authorities.

The results of the new study, conducted by some of America’s most well-respected gun violence researchers, is a setback for a growing gun control movement that has centered its national strategy on precisely the kind of state laws passed in Colorado and Washington. A third, smaller state, Delaware, passed a background check law around the same time and did see increases in the number of background checks conducted, the study found. But a similar background-check law in Nevada passed in 2016 has also run into political hurdles and has never been enforced.

The study claims that better enforcement in Delaware showed that these laws had “a dramatic impact,” as an Everytown researcher claimed. But on what? Firearm violence? Gun sales? Ironically, the study for Injury Prevention didn’t study injuries or incidents at all. The only measure it took was whether a government mandate would result in more background checks:

The new study, published in Injury Prevention, a medical journal, did not attempt to analyze whether the new background check laws in Delaware, Colorado and Washington had any effect on gun violence or gun crime. Instead, it asked a simpler question: did a law requiring more background checks actually result in more background checks being conducted?

And … that’s it. Literally, the only issue studied was whether passing new laws would force greater compliance from already law-abiding gun owners on private transactions. Instead, it showed that people tend not to follow stricter mandates where government remains mainly unaware of the transactions in the first place. Remember that federal law already mandates background checks on retail sales at gun shops. The new laws in question imposed that requirement on private sales and transfers, such as from one family member to another, transactions which would not normally come to anyone else’s attention.

Not only did it show that people tend to keep their private transactions private, it also showed that police tend to stay out of otherwise lawful private transactions, too. The suggestion from the study’s authors was “more assertive enforcement,” which would look like … what, exactly? Routine searches at the homes of gun owners? GPS tagging of firearms?

Charles C. W. Cooke warns that gun-control advocates are pushing a police state, whether they realize it or not:

To my ears, though, that argument not only sounds rather naive — how can you assertively enforce a law against transactions you don’t know about? — it also fails to take into account the trade-offs involved with any controversial piece of legislation. The sheriffs who have refused to prioritize the law are not doing so in a vacuum; they are doing so because they live in areas in which there is mass resistance to this sort of regulation, and because they do not wish to damage their relationships with their communities. In theory, those officers could be replaced, and the states in question could demand the stepping up of prosecutions post hoc. But at what cost? In rural areas especially, co-operation between the citizenry and the police is vital. Damage it, and things might get worse overall. (That, incidentally, is why the confiscation fantasy is so absurd; at a stroke you’d wipe out goodwill toward law enforcement and make policing much, much more difficult.)

For a long while now, gun-control advocates have sold background checks as a panacea of sorts, and implied that any skepticism toward them must be motivated less by earnest disagreement and more by greed or obstinacy. That a writer in the Guardian is citing “some of America’s most well-respected gun violence researchers” concluding that such “laws had little measurable effect” should damage that presumption considerably.

So does the metric chosen for this study. Suggesting that government mandates succeed merely on the basis of compliance with them is the same logic that ObamaCare advocates used to claim success for having less than half of their projected enrollments materialize. It didn’t measure access to actual care, or any positive impact on costs, which was supposed to be the raison d’être for the ACA.  The metric changed from “affordable care” to enrollment numbers, and then from projected enrollment numbers to the mere fact that anyone abided by the mandate.

Do laws like this reduce gun violence or don’t they? That’s the only measure that would justify pouring more regulation onto legal gun owners and requiring them to become an agent of the government to conduct private transactions. It’s very telling that this study completely avoids that question, choosing instead to measure success by the compliance of law-abiding citizens to ever-increasing regulation — and then failing even on that measure.

The post Gun-control measures in Colorado and Washington about as effective as you’d expect appeared first on Hot Air.

Uber and Lyft Haven't Revolutionized the American City--Yet

Real Clear Politics - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 09:11
Aarian Marshall, Wired
LAST MONTH, THE ride-hailing company Lyft released its vision for the future of Los Angeles. In a meticulous rendering depicting Angelenos of all ages and races and species (some are dogs), Lyft shows off a city that’s greener, healthier, and more walkable. The 10-lane Wilshire Boulevard, one of LA’s clogged east-west arterials, now has separate space for cyclists. Driverless buses operated by LA Metro pilot down their own, traffic-free lanes. And shared driverless cars—operated by a futuristic Lyft Line service, probably—ease on down the road.

Jemele Hill Should Speak Out--Just Maybe Not on ESPN

Real Clear Politics - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 09:06
Toure, The Daily Beast
In certain ways American law considers corporations to be like people and this is an absurd notion except that sometimes corporations do, kind of, act like people. Sometimes corporations get scared, usually because of a glimpse at their own mortality. And, like people, when they get scared they act very defensively. They become very afraid of people speaking messy truths. They make decisions like ESPN did in suspending Jemele Hill for two weeks for tweets that tied too closely to a much larger drama that the company is dealing with.

Populism Not a Threat to Democracy, But a Salve

Editor's Note: The following is adapted from the Menzies Research Centre's sixth John Howard Lecture, delivered by John O'Sullivan on August 22, 2017. It appears here with permission. Politics was once defined by Left and Right, or labor and capital. Now the divide is between the Somewheres, who are tied to family and nation, and the Anywheres, to whom culture, work, gender, and other fundamental concepts are untethered. The battles between these two sides are more bitter and resistant to compromise than most preceding politics. Contrary to what some pundits say, however, the winner of this...

The Republican party is divided into two groups these days. There's the Trump faction and its rival, the elected leaders, GOP officials, and rank-and-file antagonists of Trump. The split is not ideological. For the most part, the two sides agree on cutting taxes, killing Obamacare, and building up the military.But two differences stand out. The Trump group is by far the largest. Polls show the Republican grassroots overwhelmingly sticking with President Trump. And this sideâ??the baseâ??is eager for swift action on the agenda, including the border wall, favored by Trump. The other side...

WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump is notorious in the business world for stiffing other companies when it's time to pay the bill -- offering partial settlement of what he owes and proposing to negotiate the rest. Trump did a version of that Friday when he announced he will stay in the Iran nuclear deal for now but quit if he can't get better terms.

President Trump is expected to announce today that he cannot certify Iran's compliance with the terms of the agreement over its nuclear program that it entered into with the United States and five other nations in 2015.

President Donald Trump is now trying to break the health-care system all by himself, although he has more help than he might acknowledge. On Thursday, Trump launched an assault on Obamacare from two angles. First, the White House staged a signing ceremony for an executive order designed to push people into what are known, accurately, as “junk” insurance plans—the kind, common before the passage of the Affordable Care Act, that never seem to cover people when they are actually sick and that extort and abandon those with preëxisting conditions.

Trump Faithfully Executes Unraveling Obamacare

Andrew McCarthy, National Review
Why don't the stories say: President Trump Faithfully Executes Affordable Care Act? In report after sky-is-falling report, the journalism wing of the media-Democrat complex castigates the president over his decision to — as the New York Times put it — scrap subsidies to health insurance companies that help pay out of pocket costs of low-income people. These subsidy payments are critical to sustaining the Affordable Care Act. Without them, the Grey Lady frets, President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement could unravel ...
