    Wells Fargo will pay $24 million to settle allegations that it mistreated members of the military -- including illegally repossessing their cars. The bank, already reeling from a scandal over fake accounts, will pay $4.1 million to settle Justice Department charges that it seized 413 cars owned by service members without a court order, a violation of federal law. The Justice Department said the illegal repossessions took place from 2008 to 2015. The first complaint came from an Army National Guardsman in North Carolina who said the bank seized his car while he was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. Wells...

    The police video footage of the last moments of 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis’s life shows deputy marshals firing a barrage of bullets at his father’s S.U.V. after a car chase on the dark streets of central Louisiana. It shows his father slumped over the open car window, injured and bleeding. Minutes later, the words of an officer can be heard: “There’s a juvenile.” The deputies had fired 18 times into the car, prosecutors say. The boy, strapped to the front passenger seat of the car, was struck five times in the head and chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene....

Authorities had been trying to track them down since they were caught on surveillance video on West 27th Street removing the device from a duffel bag and then leaving with the bag on Sept. 17. Law-enforcement sources told The Post that investigators had identified the pair, but wouldn’t release their names.

    NEW YORK – In the wake of Islamic terrorist attacks in the U.S. and abroad, grantees of George Soros’s Open Society Foundations mobilized to counter anti-refugee and anti-Muslim immigration sentiment while using the attacks to push gun control and advocate against the surveillance of Muslims in major U.S. cities such as New York. Hacked Foundations memos reviewed by Breitbart Jerusalem betray the symbiotic relationship between Soros’ grantees and prominent politicians, including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in working to push these agendas. One December 3, 2015 document, titled “Aftermath of ISIS attacks,” outlined a network of grantees that immediately sprung to...

    Legislation signed this month by Gov. Jerry Brown requires California’s dairy industry to answer for its contribution to global warming by making a 40 percent cut in methane emissions in coming years. The gas, which heats the atmosphere 20 times faster than carbon dioxide, comes from the butts and burps of bovines. One U.N. report blames livestock, which has largely escaped climate regulation, for 14.5 percent of the planet’s heat-trapping gases, as much as planes, trains and automobiles combined.

    BuzzFeed recently published a presidential preference poll for their readership to take part in.

Polls are something that many media outlets do. They're a quick thing that will catch people’s attention during a heated presidential cycle and will hopefully get the public to click on the outlet's website. Undoubtedly, BuzzFeed also did this figuring that the “poll” would have a strong showing for Hillary...

    The Senate’s top Republican Thursday warned that legislation enacted over President Barack Obama’s veto to allow families of Sept. 11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia in U.S. courts may have “unintended ramifications” and that lawmakers should discuss fixes to the measure. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the White House was too slow to warn about the “potential consequences” of the measure. Both the House and Senate overwhelmingly overrode Obama’s veto of the measure on Wednesday. McConnell said he told the president recently that the 9/11 victims bill “was an example of an issue that we should have talked about...

Comey told the Senate that Mills’ immunity was a negotiation “tool to get the laptop.” Breitbart News reported that Mills, like Clinton, never signed mandatory security forms pertaining to the handling of classified information. Mills was granted immunity to protect her from prosecution while fellow Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who DID sign mandatory security forms, was not.

Wouldn't you think that some government agency—say, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Reserve, or even Congress—would be investigating this perfect definition of a predatory lender and trying to shut it down?

Additionally Director Comey also stated the phrase “they” in the Combetta post (ie. “Basically, they don’t want the VIP’s email address exposed to anyone“…) most likely included Hillary Clinton’s legal team.
