    The State Department Swamp was partially drained today. Secretary of State Tillerson fired Clinton’s rogue, self-described Shadow Government. trump-welcomes-tillersonMaking good on a Trump campaign promise, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson drained the Clinton swamp snakes, aka Obama administration holdovers. Thus the personnel responsible for the corrupt handling of Clinton’s emails and the Benghazi cover-up have left the building. Lurking in the Shadows In the Clinton State Department, a rogue shadow government existed in secret from the 7th floor. These policy makers publicly boasted about their secretive operations. And you can bet that some of them have been responsible for much...

    ( – Secretary of State John Kerry has hinted that he may be involved in one final push on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, amid growing speculation – and concern among Israel supporters – that President Obama may use the period between next week’s election and the end of his administration to break the deadlock. The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that according to administration sources, “the White House has asked the State Department to develop an options menu for the president’s final weeks.” It said the possibilities could include supporting – or not vetoing – a U.N. Security Council resolution...

    (Washington, DC) – The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014. If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands of emails. The developments come in a July 2014 Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit seeking records related to the drafting and use of the Benghazi talking points (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of...

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is asking the FBI to confirm a tip the panel received that the State Department inspector general has probed Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin for criminal misconduct. On Wednesday, the Iowa Republican sent a letter to FBI director James Comey, obtained by POLITICO, asking him to confirm any investigation of Abedin, who’s currently helping run Clinton’s 2016 campaign. “The Judiciary Committee has learned that the Office of Inspector General for the Department of State (State OIG) opened an investigation involving potential criminal conduct by Ms. Huma Abedin while she worked for the Department of State...

    Before Hillary Clinton’s news conference yesterday, Jen Psaki, the spokesperson for the United States Department of State, stated that the White House could not immediately released the former Secretary of State’s emails because “it will take several months” to redact all the classified things she sent. Despite this, Ms. Clinton then stated in her press conference, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.” Someone is not telling the truth. Either Ms. Psaki lied in order to prevent the immediate release of...

    At the White House Summit on Extremism That Shall Remain Unspecified Because Violent Followers Belonging To Unnamed Extremist Movement Might Take Extreme Offense And Act Extremely, the feds are touting a groundbreaking new strategy to fight terrorists. Just kidding. It's actually the same old futile strategy that big-government liberals use to cure everything: mo' money, mo' money, mo' money. Instead of killing jihadists, keeping them off of our soil, locking up their poisonous spiritual agitators and shutting off their terror-funding pipelines, President Obama called on America and the world to "invest" in unnamed immigrant "communities" vulnerable to unnamed extremism. Some...
  • Hillary Clinton's Legacy: Defending Rapists and Sexual Predators

    Earlier this week, audio of Hillary Clinton gleefully defending a child rapist was published by the Washington Free Beacon’s Alana Goodman. In 1975 during her time as an attorney, Clinton took on the case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, a man who brutally raped a 12-year-old girl at the age of 41. Clinton said she thought Taylor was guilty. The issue isn’t her defense of the accused rapist; after all, this is America and even the worst and most evil villains in our society are entitled to an attorney. Instead, the issue is Clinton’s behavior after getting Taylor out of a...

    The Obama administration has announced that it is taking the unbelievable role of pushing the homosexual agenda around the world and punishing countries that don't comply. Back in July, MassResistance reported how the Pakistanis angrily denounced the US Embassy's open homosexual parties as "cultural terrorism." Well, that was just the beginning. Now, foreign countries which seek to protect their citizens against homosexuality and the homosexual movement will be actively confronted by America's State Department, foreign service, and other federal departments, according to a Presidential Memorandum released by the Obama Administration announced on Dec. 6. Unless countries around the world subordinate...

    Boeing on 8 July received a license to export the F-15 Silent Eagle to South Korea and tested in flight one of the key upgrades for the stealthy new design. "It was a big week for the F-15," says Brad Jones, Boeing director for F-15 development programmes. The US Department of State awarded the license after a two-month review based on an undisclosed export policy established in May, Jones says. South Korea is expected to issue a request for proposals for the F-X3 contract in the first quarter of 2011, Jones says. The F-15SE will compete with the Lockheed Martin...

    (English-language translation) WASHINGTON - The Department of State cleared the way yesterday for the United States to provide military education and training to the Guatemala Air Force, Navy, and Corps of Engineers. An announcement published in the Federal Register reports that these institutions respect human rights and cooperate with civil judicial investigations of military personnel who "have been the object of credible accusations of having committed human-rights violations." This "certification" was a requirement towards activating half a million dollars the United States will dedicate to those ends, according to the so-called Foreign Operations Law of 2008. The [Guatemala] Army is...

    State Department workers viewed passport applications containing personal information about high-profile Americans, including the late Playboy playmate Anna Nicole Smith, at least 20 times since January 2007, The Associated Press has learned. That total is far more than disclosed last week with the news that presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama had been victims of improper snooping. An internal department review has found the additional instances of department employees or contractors looking at computerized passport files of politicians and celebrities, according to preliminary results. It has not been determined if the new cases also involved improper...

    MILITANTS threatened to kidnap or murder Western citizens as anger over the publication of caricatures of Mohammed spread around the Muslim world. Diplomats, journalists and aid workers fled Gaza and the West Bank yesterday as Palestinian gunmen searched hotels for citizens of countries where newspapers had printed the images, warning they were now targets. As Western governments tried to calm tensions ahead of Friday prayers in mosques across the Middle East, protesters burst into the building housing the Danish embassy in Jakarta and burned the Danish flag to show anger over the publication of the cartoons by a Danish newspaper....

    Christians in Iran, especially converts from Islam, have experienced growing persecution from the government since the new Iranian President was installed, according to reports. The recent wave of persecution traces back to the kidnapping and stabbing of an Iranian convert to Christianity named Ghorban Tori on Nov. 22. Since Tori’s death, not only was the church to which he belonged raided, but ten other Christians were arrested in other cities, including the Iranian capital, Tehran, according to Compass Direct. The murdered 50-year-old Tori was a leader of an independent house church of Christian converts in Gonbad-e-Kavus, a town east of...

    There are about 40 of them -- ghost employees of the State Department. They have had their security clearances suspended and are under investigation until officials decide whether to revoke or restore them. Some of the employees are Foreign Service officers with decades of experience. They say they have been waiting for as long as two and three years for the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, which investigates possible security risks, to make decisions in their cases. Daniel Hirsch, one of the diplomats with a suspended clearance, was recalled to Washington from a Central Asian nation after his wife sought marital...

    Ambassador Says Critical Letter Is Hoax WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. ambassador told the State Department Tuesday that a letter attributed to him and critical of career diplomats was a hoax, a U.S. official said. "The ambassador has said the letter is a complete fake and does not reflect his views," said a State Department official, who asked not to be named. The State Department will make a formal statement later Tuesday, he added. The Washington Times, which published the letter as though it were from Stephan Minikes, ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, withdrew the...
