Parents of Two Benghazi Victims Sue Hillary Clinton

Parents of two of the four Americans who were killed in the Benghazi attack in 2012 filed have a lawsuit Monday against Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, alleging recklessly handling of classified information contributed to their deaths.

The case has been filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch USA on behalf of Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, and Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, for allegedly wrongfully causing the death of their sons as well as for defamation and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The lawsuit suggests that Clinton’s use of a private email server contributed to the deaths of Smith and Woods, adding that terrorists were able to “obtain the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and thus the U.S. State Department and covert and other government operations in Benghazi, Libya and subsequently orchestrate, plan, and execute the now infamous September 11, 2012 attack.”

“Having used a secret private email server that we now know was used to communicate with Ambassador Christopher Stevens with confidential and classified government information, and which we also now know was likely hacked by hostile adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea aligning with terrorist groups, it is clear that Hillary Clinton allegedly negligently and recklessly gave up the classified location of the plaintiffs’ sons, resulting in a deadly terrorist attack that took their lives,” Klayman said in a statement announcing the suit.

In addition to the wrongful death and negligence charges named in the suit, the parents also claim that Clinton defamed them in statements to the media, according to court documents.

“During her campaign for President, Defendant Clinton has negligently, recklessly, and/or maliciously defamed Plaintiffs by either directly calling them liars, or by strongly implying that they are liars, in order to protect and enhance her public image and intimidate and emotionally harm and silence them to not speak up about the Benghazi attack on at least four separate occasions,” Klayman wrote in his complaint.

Barack Obama Answers Questions At Town Hall Event, Guns in America

President Barack Obama answered a gun executive, a sheriff, a rape survivor and a widow who oppose his actions at the “Guns in America” town hall event.

Obama also rejected the “imaginary fiction” that he wanted to take away the guns of law-abiding Americans.

“The way it is described, is that we are trying to take away everybody’s guns,” Obama said, charging that his opponents had twisted his plans on gun safety measures.

“Our position is consistently mischaracterized,” Obama said. “If you listen to the rhetoric, it is so over-the-top, it is so overheated.”

Obama also took questions from people who agreed with his proposal to expand background checks, including former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, who have been fierce advocates of increased gun control since Giffords was seriously wounded in a 2011 shooting in Tucson, Arizona.

The President also said that he would be happy to meet with representatives of the National Rifle Association, which declined to take part in the town hall meeting even though other gun rights advocates did attend.

The New Horizons Mission To Pluto

The epic, first exploration of Pluto and its moons by the NASA New Horizons mission was completed last week, on Tuesday, July 14. And it captured the attention and imaginations of people across America and the entire world.

New Horizons is truly an American-made product, and one we can all be proud of. More than 2,500 Americans worked to design, build, launch, and fly New Horizons.

This NASA-industry-academia team included major partners at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, the Southwest Research Institute, Ball Aerospace, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, United Launch Alliance, KinetX Corporation, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Stanford University, the University of Colorado, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, as well as dozens of other universities and small companies who contributed.

The people who created New Horizons to complete the first reconnaissance of the planets delivered on the promise we made in 2001 to explore the Pluto system. We invested 15 years of our careers and lives to do this, to create knowledge, to show the United States on its game, to inspire kids and adults alike — across the world — and to make you proud.

In addition to gathering incredible science, one of my hopes for the flyby was that we’d excite people about the power of exploration, the sheer audacity of our species, and the great things we can achieve. And it’s working — from an unprecedented response on social media to global news coverage, the exciting and historic nature of New Horizons has really caught on!

It took us more than nine years to cross the 3 billion miles of space to get to Pluto — and you have followed our journey, supported us, and believed in our mission. We can’t thank you enough for that, or for your support of NASA that made New Horizons possible.

Carly Fiorina: Hillary Fails Economics 101

Hillary gave a big economics speech–and all she did was prove she doesn’t know the first thing about the economy.

No, Hillary: you can’t grow the economy by drowning businesses under new regulations, like a skyrocketing minimum wage.

No, Hillary: more government intervention doesn’t create a middle class–it creates crony capitalism that helps people at the very top shut out competition and innovation.

And no, Hillary: tech innovators, like Uber and Airbnb aren’t villains because they shake up the status quo–they create jobs and invigorate industries because they shake up the status quo.

That’s all just Economics 101.

But somehow, many of my opponents–especially Hillary Clinton–haven’t even mastered basic economics. And they urgently need to be called out for their economic illiteracy.

Our campaign is in a perfect position to do that–but only if we can continue to build our team.

And that’s where I need your help. I know you’ve already done so much–but I need your help to build our momentum and get our message out in front of millions of Americans.
