Dem-ordered study to expose illegal online gun sales backfires

A Democrat-backed study meant to expose illicit online gun sales instead seemed to show the opposite — with hardly any sellers taking the bait when undercover investigators tried to set up dozens of illegal firearm transactions.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as well as Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, had commissioned the Government Accountability Office report to look into how online private dealers might be selling guns to people not allowed to have them.

Charges against rancher Cliven Bundy, three others are dismissed

A federal judge dismissed all charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and another man on Monday after accusing prosecutors of willfully withholding evidence from Bundy’s lawyers.

EXCLUSIVE: Huma Abedin backed up her emails to Anthony Weiner’s laptop after leaving the State Department – even though she said on oath and to FBI agents that she did no such thing

An examination by DailyMail.com of emails released by the State Department shows that backup copies of many of Abedin’s work-related messages with Clinton were created in the dates after Clinton left the State Department in early 2013.

The emails, released at the end of December, show that they had been put on Weiner’s laptop by a BlackBerry archiving program.

A tech expert told Dailymail.com that Abedin would have to have activated the backup program and may well have plugged her device into the laptop – raising further questions over her testimony to the FBI.

The world’s first digital prescription pill has arrived. Here’s what it can do.

The world’s first digital pill looks a lot like any other medicine. At least on the outside.

That’s because the hi-tech part is on the inside: a digital, ingestible sensor developed by medical device company Proteus.

The sensor is about the size of a grain of sand and can be baked into most any tablet. This year, it will be dispensed inside of a special version of Abilify, a mental health medication, to make the first FDA-approved prescription medication digital pill.

USC OK with prof’s anti-Semitic presentation?

After much cover-up by the mainstream media since last fall, it has only recently come to light that a professor from a major Southern California university compared Israeli Zionists to terrorists.

A student recently brought it to the attention of the group StandWithUs that University of Southern California (USC) professor David Kang, showed a slide during a class lecture that compared Zionists to the likes of Kim Jong Il, Mao Zedong and other terrorists.

StandWithUs Co-founder and CEO Roz Rothstein described how the student sat in amazement as other classmates remained silent during the professor’s anti-Semitic statement under the guise of progressive education.

World News:

Rubin: It’s a terrible situation in Europe

A U.S.-born Israeli author and expert on the Middle East doesn’t think anyone should be surprised by a German study that shows the recent influx of mostly young male Islamic migrants has led to an increase in violent crime in the country.

The study uses figures from the northern state of Lower Saxony to examine the impact refugee arrivals made on crime in 2015 and 2016, a period when the number of violent crimes reported increased by almost ten and a half percent. The authors conclude that 92 percent of the additional crimes recorded could be attributed to the increase in refugee numbers.

Commentary / Opinion:

WALSH: Stop Congratulating Yourselves, Hollywood. You Hypocritical, Self-Serving Cowards.

An actress showed up on the Golden Globes red carpet last night wearing a sweatshirt with the words “Poverty is Sexist” emblazoned across it. The sweatshirt costs $380. It was a perfect microcosm of the entire night, and the film industry as a whole: vapid, ridiculous, clueless, meaningless, self-serving, self-righteous, self-defeating, hypocritical, phony.
