State finds 30 deleted Clinton emails on Benghazi | Washington Examiner

State Department attorneys said Tuesday the agency had discovered 30 Benghazi-related emails among the records recovered from Hillary Clinton's private server.

A judge asked the agency to hasten its review of the documents in preparation for release to Judicial Watch, the conservative-leaning group that filed the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

The emails were included among the roughly 15,000 emails FBI agents said they pulled from Clinton's server in the course of a year-long probe.

Others were deleted beyond recovery after the Democratic nominee's team used a digital tool called BleachBit to scrub the hardware that was eventually confiscated by law enforcement agents.

City Circle Acting Company of Coralville will hold auditions for the Fiddler on the Roof on Friday, September 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, October 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Community of Christ Church, 2121 S. Ridge Drive in Coralville. Callbacks will be held Sunday, October 2 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

To schedule an audition, complete and submit the audition form at www.citycircle.org. Once you submit the form the producer will contact you with your appointment time. Walk-ins are always welcome, but those with appointments will take priority.

Winner of nine Tony awards, this classic musical by Jerry Bock (music), Sheldon Harnick (lyrics) and Joseph Stein (book) tells the story of Tevye, a Jewish dairyman in Imperial Russia at the beginning of the 20th century, who struggles to hold on to his religious and cultural traditions despite pressure to change. Perhaps the most powerful pull is that of his independent-minded daughters, who wish to choose their husbands, instead of abiding by the tradition of the matchmaker. Funny, sweet, beautiful and heartbreaking, this is a show for everyone!

Fiddler on the Roof will be performed December 9-11 and 16-18 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

Patty Judge Wants to Force Iowa Taxpayers to Fund Abortion On-Demand

Judge Sides with Abortion Lobby over Taxpayers by Supporting Hillary Clinton's Plan to Repeal Longstanding Hyde Amendment

August 30, 2016-Des Moines, Iowa
-Iowa Right to Life and the national Pro-Life group, Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), are calling out Iowa senatorial candidate Patty Judge who told KCCI Channel 8 on Sunday she supports repealing the Hyde Amendment, the longstanding bipartisan policy preventing federal taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand under Medicaid.

The platform ratified by Democrats in Philadelphia last month, for the first time explicitly calls for the repeal of this policy and Hillary Clinton has pledged to repeal it if elected president.
 
Iowa Right to Life CEO, Jenifer Bowen, and SBA List president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, released the following joint statement:

 

"Not only does Patty Judge oppose compassionate limits on late term abortion more than halfway through pregnancy, Judge stands in lockstep with Hillary Clinton and the abortion lobby in their desire to force Americans to pay for abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, with their taxpayer dollars. Patty Judge will fight for Big Abortion, not Iowa families and taxpayers. Her position on taxpayer funding of abortion is profoundly unpopular - including with members of her own party."
 
A recent Marist poll found that a majority of Americans (62 percent) oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, including 45 percent of those who say they are "pro-choice" and 44 percent of Democrats.
 
Both Iowa Right to Life and Susan B. Anthony List have endorsed Senator Chuck Grassley.
 
"Senator Grassley is a longtime Pro-Life champion with whom we have both worked for many years. His leadership on the Senate Judiciary Committee virtually ended the discussion of the Garland nomination and any other Obama appointee before the next president is elected," added Dannenfelser and Bowen. 

 

"On the other hand, Patty Judge has been endorsed by the radical pro-abortion EMILY's List, which opposes even the most modest Pro-Life initiatives. She will be a rubber stamp for Hillary Clinton's extreme agenda, which includes forcing Americans to pay for abortion on-demand with our taxpayer dollars."
 
 
Iowa Right to Life is the largest Pro-Life organization in Iowa.  Protecting life from fertilization to natural death, we focus on the human rights issues of abortion, infanticide and euthanasia.

Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, spent $15.25 million in the 2014 election cycle to defeat pro-abortion incumbents and elect pro-life candidates to federal and statewide office. The SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women.  The SBA List is a network of more than 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.

Chicago Cubs rally behind Jake Arrieta to top Pirates in extras - Chicago Cubs Blog- ESPN

CHICAGO -- The kids set it up and -- finally -- the veterans knocked it down for the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs' wacky 8-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates in 13 innings on Monday was a sprawling affair. The game dragged on just over five hours, a fact ill-timed in a number of ways. But when Miguel Montero looped a single against a drawn infield to score Kris Bryant, it was all worth it.

"That was a goofy game, boy," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said as he sat down for his late-night, postgame news conference. He could have left it at that.

The win was an affirmative testament to the collective will of a tired Chicago team. One day after they finished a nine-game, 10-day West Coast trip punctuated by flight delays and a short night's rest, the Cubs came back twice to knock off a Pirates team involved in a tight battle with St. Louis for the NL's second wild-card spot.

"We got in late last night," Maddon said. "These guys were tired."

Chicago Bears trying to get healthy - Sports - The Register-Mail - Galesburg, IL

LAKE FOREST — Chicago Bears inside linebacker Danny Trevathan is more interested in what happens next.

The way the preseason has gone, it's probably best not to look back.

"I'm more concerned about (how) we're adjusting and how we're going to bounce back from that," Trevathan said.

"You know it's preseason and I know all that but collectively I want to see us play a little better man, and put together a great start and a great finish at the same time."

From a long list of injuries to a rash of poor play, little has gone the Bears' way.
