  • Hillary Releases Ad Linking Trump to KKK, Turns Out People in Video are Paid Actors, Not Klansman

    08/27/2016 3:13:50 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 37 replies
    Hillary Clinton attempted to link Donald Trump to the KKK in an attack ad the other day, because former Klansman David Duke showed his support earlier in the year for the Republican nominee. Grandma forgot that members of her beloved party actually founded the organization in the first place. She also couldn’t recall that a prominent Klansman, Robert Byrd, was her “mentor.” What also seemed to slip Hillary’s mind is that the KKK gave $20,000 to her campaign. Face palm. Turns out that the people used in Clinton’s KKK ad are actually paid actors, not klansman. I just hope they...

    DCLeaks, a website that releases information on powerful political figures, has had its Twitter account suspended and part of its website taken offline after releasing a cache of documents on billionaire donor George Soros. The website had previously released 2,500 internal Open Society Foundation (OSF) documents in order to “shed light on one of the most influential networks operating worldwide.” OSF is one of Soros’ networks of organizations. The leaked documents had resulted in several damaging reports about the organization. OSF had previously confirmed that the documents were legitimate.

    Reuters giveth, and Reuters taketh away. After seeing her lead balloon to twelve points earlier in the week, Hillary Clinton’s edge on Donald Trump dropped by more than half in the latest iteration of their tracking poll. Trump has moved back within five points, mainly through a fade in Hillary’s support back to her August low: U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leads her Republican rival Donald Trump by 5 percentage points among likely voters, down from a peak this month of 12 points, according to the Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll released on Friday.The Aug. 22-25 opinion poll found that...

    Revelations that the Hillary Clinton-led US State Department granted favors to governments, corporations, and individuals that made donations to the Clinton Foundation have stirred concerns that a Clinton presidency might be tainted by corruption. Foundation president Donna Shalala urged that "we take a more balanced look at the totality of the situation." "On the surface, the proximity of the donations and actions taken by Secretary Clinton does appear suspicious," Shalala admitted. "However, Hillary has repeatedly said that all the actions she took would have been taken regardless of any donations that were made to the Foundation. Clearly donors weren't buying...

    Rio de Janeiro (AFP) - Police on Friday recommended corruption charges against Brazil's ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva as part of a probe into a huge embezzlement scheme at state oil company Petrobras. The recommendation, which must now be considered by prosecutors before becoming formal charges, was made in a filing seen by AFP. A judge would still have to decide whether to accept the charges. The development comes as Lula's successor and protege Dilma Rousseff fights an impeachment trial in the Senate. Lula, who founded the Workers' Party and was president between 2003-2010 before helping Rousseff get elected,...

The EPA internally acknowledged the award and crafted a response to TheDCNF’s finding, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, but the response was never sent to the news organization.

    Recent headlines have brought attention to the seedier side of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state during President Obama’s first term. This scheme, which gives every appearance of being about pay-for-play, solicited donations from foreign big-shots in exchange for access to the boss of American foreign policy. I’ll leave to others to assess the legality of this shady business—for now it’s the national security implications we need to discuss. It’s a big deal when the person who’s possibly our next president—and if polls are accurate, she probably will be—has sold access to foreign bidders before taking the oath of...

Mr. Koskinen is hoping to head off yet another judicial spanking for his agency, which has suffered a string of defeats in federal courts that ruled he is still improperly targeting conservative groups and mistreating them more than three years after the tax agency admitted to its bad behavior. Not only are three groups still awaiting approval, but the IRS had left open the possibility...

    The Obama administration does not believe that a special prosecutor is necessary to investigate the Clinton Foundation, according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest. He suggested that those who were calling for a special prosecutor were impugning the character of the F.B.I. and the Justice Department. “I just think it’s hard for anybody to make a very persuasive case that somehow there hasn’t been enough investigating,” Earnest said during the White House press conference today. President Barack Obama, he said, had “complete confidence” in the independent career prosecutors of the Justice Department and the F.B.I.

Earlier police had further questions for the swimmer - a 12-time Olympic medallist - about the supposed robbery and found 'little evidence' that it had taken place. Lochte claims that he and three of his team-mates were robbed at gunpoint in a taxi, but police say the swimmers were unable to provide key details in police interviews. Lochte’s attorney, Jeff Ostrow, said there was no question the robbery happened and that the swimmer had 24-hour security hired after...

Democrat Kathleen Kane's exit completes a spectacular fall for the former county prosecutor who soared to victory four years ago as an outsider promising to break up an "old-boys' network" in state government. She squandered her early popularity, feuded with rivals and aides and ultimately was undone by what prosecutors portrayed as a personal vendetta against her critics and perceived enemies.

Let's run through some of those caveats:  First, the substance of the report rests on the assertions of a single source -- who goes unnamed, and who is vaguely identified as a "former senior law enforcement official."  Journalistically, this is very thin.  Second, the piece's central claim appears to fly in the face of CNN's very recent reporting that the Justice Department had shot down requests from three FBI field offices to open a probe into the Clinton Foundation.  Third, the story comes from a conservative-leaning outlet,...

  • EVIL Clinton Pardons & Hillary Connected [aw!m vanity]

    08/14/2016 4:39:01 AM PDT · by Arthur Wildfire! March · 15 replies
    If you think that the Clinton pardons don't apply to Hillary think again! She was neck-deep in the most shocking pardons her husband signed. How perverse were these pardons? I'll put it this way -- senators had almost unanymously condemned President Bill Clinton [in a vote of 95 to 2] for those sleazy pardons. Many of those senators now support Hillary and/or bash Trump EVEN THOUGH Hillary's own brother sold a pardon to a crack dealer for $400,000. The amount of crack involved was 800 pounds. But there were other evil pardons, such as Clinton granting clemency to FALN bomb...

    "Hillary Clinton's week of scandals, from corruption to allegations of pay-to-play to flip-flops, reminded everyone just how flawed she is as a candidate and why the American people cannot afford four more years of Obama-Clinton rule. Whether it’s using government entities to personally and politically enrich herself, prioritizing donors over what's best for the American people, using her influence to shutter suspicious financial transactions with the Clinton Foundation and foreign entities, or the ability of Clinton to completely surrender and sell out American workers after promising a stop to the TPP, it’s clear that Crooked Hillary will do and say...

    Hillary and Bill Clinton funneled 96 percent of their charitable donations to their own family foundation, according to the Democratic nominee’s 2015 tax returns. Last year, $1 million of the total $1,042,000 that the Clintons deducted in charitable contributions went to the Clinton Family Foundation, the Daily Caller reported Friday. The tax return showed that the other $42,000 in contributions went to Desert Classic Charities, a nonprofit that organizes an annual charity golf tournament. The organization then in turn contributed $700,000 to the Clinton Foundation. A foundation adviser and longtime Bill Clinton assistant, Doug Band, was on the organization’s board...

    Whoever or whatever is behind Guccifer 2, they are playing mind games, aka conducting psy-ops, with the Democrats. A look at the actual webpage where G2 exposes the hacked Democrat documents shows them taunting Dems. Hi all! It’s time for new revelations now. All of you may have heard about the DCCC hack. As you see I wasn’t wasting my time! It was even easier than in the case of the DNC breach. As you see the U.S. presidential elections are becoming a farce, a big political performance where the voters are far from playing the leading role. Everything is...

    Emerging evidence that the State Department under Hillary Clinton sold favors in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation has raised serious ethics issues regarding her oversight of the agency. Department Spokesperson Elizabeth Trudeau acknowledged that the transactions appear to have violated a pledge signed by Clinton when she assumed the Secretary position in 2009. "The problem is that the only evidence of inappropriate interactions we have implicates her subordinates who did not sign any pledges," Trudeau said. "Secretary Clinton's pledge was to not be personally involved in dealings between the Clinton Foundation and clients of the State Department. Technically,...

    Twenty-six energy companies with business before the state donated nearly $10million to Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Democratic Party over the past eight years — donations that often were made within days or weeks of winning favors. That’s the contention of “Brown’s Dirty Hands“ a report released Wednesday by the Santa Monica-based public interest group Consumer Watchdog. [snip]The report alleges that Brown and his operatives have used the California Democratic Party as “a political slush fund” to receive contributions from unpopular energy companies in amounts greater than permitted to his candidate committee. The group has logged its report as...

    When it comes to unity, the Democrats talk a good game -- but in the end they promote disunity because their electability depends on dividing society into groups and inciting anger, resentment and distrust. I don't need to cite examples of Democrats' blaming Republicans for divisiveness and falsely extolling their own aspirations of unity. They are everywhere. It's what they do, from their talk of our "common humanity," to their glorification of all kinds of diversity, except diversity of thought, to their proclaimed monopoly on tolerance. It's ironic that Democrats get away with this lie. It is Republicans, or at...
