  • DNC: We rigged primaries. So what?

    'We could have gone into back rooms like they used to and smoke cigars and pick the candidate'! The Democratic National Committee is currently defending the tactics it used last year to rig the presidential primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders in a class-action lawsuit, brazenly telling voters in a court of law that the party is not obligated to run a fair and impartial primary election. Outraged by how the DNC unfairly boosted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and cleared the way for her primary victory, supporters of Sanders and Democratic donors sued the DNC in June 2016...

    National Security Council (NSC) career staffers are purging their social media accounts of any past anti-Trump sentiments, the New York Times reports. The purge comes amid increased suspicion among NSC political appointees that career officials are leaking key details of the Trump administration’s possible courses of action. These White House political appointees reportedly call these leaks the “insider threat” and are considering monitoring the phone calls and emails of career staffers. The White House was reportedly incensed by leaks within the NSC of plans by Secretary of Defense James Mattis to have U.S. sailors board an Iranian ship in international...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) -- The Mesa County Elections Office said they received reports a canvasser for the Democratic party was offering to pick up ballots and turn them in for voters. The elections office said that while this is legal, it is a really bad idea – voters should never give their ballot to a stranger. Elections officials recommended that voters turn their ballots in themselves or have a trusted loved one do it. Local Democratic officials confirmed they do help voters turn ballots in. Local Republicans, however, said they drive people to the ballot drop-off locations, but never...

    The Justice Department has granted Cheryl Mills, a former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, a limited immunity deal in the FBI's investigation into the use of the former secretary of state's private email server, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee said on Friday. Chafffetz told the Associated Press that Mills allowed the FBI to access her laptop in the agency's now-closed investigation into Clinton's use of the private email server on the condition that findings couldn't be used against her. Two other staffers, John Bentel, then-director of the State Department's Office of Information Resources Management, and Clinton aide...

    In a highly unusual move, Rep. Jason Chaffetz served a subpoena to an FBI official for all documents the bureau has gathered during the course of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server in the middle of a committee hearing. The nearly unprecedented action reflects a growing frustration by the Oversight Committee with the FBI over what they see as a lack of cooperation in investigating the decision made by Director Comey in not indicting Clinton.
  • State Department Finds No Evidence Clinton, or Top Aides, Completed Mandatory Ethics Training

    breitbart.com ^ | 8/19/2016 | John Hayward
    The State Department was unable to find any records showing that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton completed ethics training courses, as required by federal law. Furthermore, no documentation was found for a bevy of top Clinton aides, including names familiar from the Clinton email scandal, such as Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan, Dennis Cheng, Anne Marie Slaughter, Phillippe Reines, Caitlin Klevorick, and Kris Bladerston. The lack of ethics documentation was revealed by the Republican National Committee, which had to squeeze the admission out of the State Department with a lawsuit, after the department failed to comply with a Freedom...

    Member Of Congress: “It’s Easy To Manipulate A Nation Of Naive Sheep” You may not believe the incredible things that one member of Congress is saying about the corruption of our political system and the gullibility of the American people. In a brand new book entitled "The Confessions of Congressman X", one anonymous member of the U.S. House of Representatives confesses that he hardly ever reads the bills that he votes on, that his main job is to get reelected, and that it is "far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant...

    The House Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was pleasantly surprised by the Obama administration on Thursday. After months of accusing the committee of hampering progress in the investigation for political reasons, the State Department has finally admitted it deserves the blame for the delayed findings. The State Department’s review unit into documents uncovered by the Benghazi committee was supposed to be functional by June 2015, but the agency failed to make that target. State Department spokesman Mark Toner noted that Gowdy did his part, even helping to secure funds for the department to obtain the relevant records. In...

    There is little argument Hillary Clinton is singularly adept at “delivering results” that keep her and her husband out of prison. There are those today who view her running for president as another exercise to “deliver results.” As long as she is running for president the chances of her being held accountable for her treasonous handling of top secret information vis-a-vis her emails and email server are remote. Yes, Hillary Clinton knows how to “deliver results,” but sadly, they are results that protect her and her serial molester husband while doing massive injustice to the nation she has pledged to...

    When Hillary Clinton was first lady, she did not have a security clearance, but she was "often provided" classified information, she told her longtime friend and ABC News host George Stephanopoulos in a long-forgotten Dec. 30, 2007 interview rediscovered by The Daily Caller. It was just weeks before the 2008 Iowa caucuses and Clinton was out touting her foreign policy experience, both as a senator from New York and as first lady. She wanted to be seen as the strong and experienced choice in contrast to upstart Barack Obama, then a senator from Illinois.

    The FBI is investigating whether Hillary Clinton's State Department improperly directed contracts to Clinton Foundation donors, in possible violation of public corruption laws, Fox News is reporting. Three sources confirmed the previously-unknown investigation angle to Fox reporters Catherine Herridge and Pamela Browne. "The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed," one law enforcement source told Fox. Examples abound of Clinton's State Department opening doors for Clinton Foundation donors, as well as to the then-secretary of state's friends and political allies.

    The AFL-CIO, along with some public sector unions, announced a campaign finance freeze in March. Unions hoped the threat of withholding contributions would scare Democratic lawmakers out of supporting President Barack Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority, or “fast track,” to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a trade agreement labor groups say would hurt manufacturing jobs in the U.S.

    Liberals, please stop it with the Iraq war lies. There is plenty of criticism that can be leveled against George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003, but he didn’t deliberately mislead the country about Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction (WMD). With the new cool question for 2016 Republican contenders being “knowing what we know now, would you have invaded Iraq,” the debate about pre-Iraq war intelligence has once again come to the forefront. Predictably, some liberals have used the occasion to again trot out the wholly dishonest spin that the Bush administration concocted evidence and pressured the...

    Forbes' picks for 10 most infamous U.S. tax cheats are a diverse lot, ranging from Chicago mob boss Al Capone, who made his mark with violence and vice in the 1920s, to Ty Warner, who became a billionaire hawking Beanie Babies in the 1990s. There’s “Queen of Mean” Leona Helmsley, who (according to a former maid’s testimony) boasted that “only the little people pay taxes,’’ and self-styled “Queen of IRS Tax Fraud’’ Rashia Wilson, who filed for millions in phony refunds using stolen IDs, then boasted on Facebook that “if you think that indicting me will be easy, it won’t....

    For those of us who do not live in the memory hole that shields this administration from any accountability, here are some relevant facts about Acting Director Brandon and his involvement in the Fast and Furious cover-up. According to outgoing Director Jones's sworn testimony of April 2, 2014 before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Mr. Brandon was the person who determined disciplinary punishments for all of the ATF personnel involved in Fast and Furious. Brandon was "the ultimate decision maker." Director Jones confirmed that Thomas Brandon did not fire a single person for participation in Fast and Furious.

    Between the Soviet-style propaganda purveyed by President Obama and the White House, the undeniable evidence of their collusion with Islamists, and the ever-widening body of government officials and lawmakers of both parties who have demonstrated that they intend to ignore this treason, our nation is faced with a crisis of unprecedented proportion. Early this week, Sen. Kelly Ayotte called for the Obama administration to declare war against radical Islam. “[Y]ou have to define your enemy,” Ayotte said on “Fox News Sunday.” “The administration should spend less time on political correctness and more time on a strategy.” As we’ve seen groups...

    I will spare my readers yet another frustrating analysis of President Obama’s State of the Union address this week, in that enumerating his dubious intentions and the brazen lies he tells are things I express here quite regularly. Other than his defiant tone serving to give the lie to his conciliatory rhetoric prior to the November midterm election rout, I believe that the primary value of this address was its potential for having demonstrated to a few million more Americans that this is the most diabolical individual to ever occupy the White House.

    Remember when Valerie Plame was the poster girl for Bush and Cheney-haters? A desk jockey at the CIA with some flowing blonde hair claim to glamour (in terms of image exploitation, a Wendy Davis-like figure), Plame was supposedly endangered when her name was supposedly leaked by someone in the Bush administration, supposedly in retaliation for her husband Joe Wilson’s criticism of Iraq War policy.
