DNC Chair Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) argued that “we’ve had transparency across the board” when asked about Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street speeches on Thursday’s “America’s Election HQ” following the Democratic debate. Wasserman Schultz was asked, “You’ve always been a proponent of transparency. I remember talking to you numerous times in the Bush administration, where you’d brought up transparency. Given that history, do you think that Secretary Clinton should release the transcripts of those Wall Street speeches?” She answered, “You know, that’s something that’s going to be up to the secretary, when it comes to transparency related to her official work, she released 55,000 pages of emails, and it doesn’t get more transparent than that. And I’m confident that she will make the kinds of decisions that she believes are necessary and appropriate, and when it comes to transparency, I think we’ve had consistent transparency across the board.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Independent Newspaper Goes ‘Online Only’ After Nailing Its Colours To The Mast of The ‘Islamophobia’ Industry

The Independent newspaper, a standard bearer for Britain’s left-wing media establishment for 29 years, has announced that it will close its print section and go “online only” from March 2016. The owners of the Independent and the Independent on Sunday, ESI Media, have confirmed that they will cease printing operations for the papers in March. They are currently in talks with Johnson Press to sell sister-publication i for £24 million. ESI Media owner Evgeny Lebedev confirmed the changes in a letter to employees writing: “I can now confirm we are selling The Independent’s sister paper, i, to Johnston Press, subject to Johnston Press shareholder approval. The newspaper is renowned for its heavily left-wing slant, often using its front pages to promote the euro currency, climate change, and radical feminism. But since being taken over by Russian billionaires Alexander and Evgeny Lebedev, the paper has suffered not just a decline in its already low readership, but also a slew of journalistic faux pas. Recently, the paper published falsehoods asserted by one its flagship columnists, Yasmin Alibhai Brown, as well as repeatedly calling for smear tactics to be used to discredit Eurosceptic voices in Britain. The paper has become increasingly reliant on “clickbait” articles on its i100

Trump Blasts Pope on Mexican Immigration, He ‘Doesn’t Understand’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Verizon Wireless Arena on February 8, 2016 in Manchester, New Hampshire
On the eve of Pope Francis’ trip to Mexico, Presidential candidate Donald Trump came down hard on the pontiff, calling him a “very political person” who is being exploited by Mexico at America’s expense. The Pope is leaving for Mexico just after noon on Friday, where he will visit a pediatric hospital, meet with an indigenous community in the southern Chiapas region, speak to youth and workers, and celebrate Mass at the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Next Wednesday, on the final day of his trip, Francis will visit the border town of Ciudad Juárez, where he will participate in several events, including the celebration of a “cross-border” Mass. On Fox Business Network Thursday morning, Stu Varney reminded Donald Trump that the Pope is going “to stand at the border” with migrants, and asked for his take on the matter. “I think that the Pope is a very political person,” Trump responded, before adding that he thinks the Pope is being used by Mexico to advance its interests against the United States. “I think he doesn’t understand the problems our country has,” he continued. “I don’t think he understands the danger of the open border that we have with Mexico.

Krauthammer: Hillary’s Accusing Sanders of Disrespecting ‘Icon in Black American History’ In Obama

Columnist Charles Krauthammer argued Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attacking fellow candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his criticism of President Obama is a calculated push for African-American votes in South Carolina by “saying, ‘You’ve disrespected this icon in black American history.’” on Thursday’s “America’s Election HQ” on the Fox News Channel. Krauthammer said, “[I]t’s interesting the way that Hillary wrapped herself in Obama. That hasn’t worked up until now. Obama is not popular. Obviously, it hasn’t worked, because it associates her with the status quo. And all sides, Democratic and Republican, are railing against it, and saying how bad our situation is. Nonetheless, her strategy is I think quite specific, pointed at South Carolina. She has to win big there. If not, I think her whole campaign could collapse. It’s heavily African-American, and I think her sense is, her calculation is that in that community, Obama is a source of iconic pride, and when she specifically came after Sanders for his attacks on Obama, I think it was a way of saying, ‘You’ve disrespected this icon in black American history.’ Whether it’ll work or not, I don’t know, but it had a logic to it.” (h/t
