    One of the reporters who exposed what appears to have been former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s clandestine and rogue intelligence service said that there are more questions than answers regarding the operation, which was exposed in the hacked emails of Clinton’s longtime confidante Sidney Blumenthal. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125, Jeff Gerth, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon that he still wanted to know “who authorized or tasked this network to do what they did” and “who was paying for this?” Gerth, the former...

    Behind the saga of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email account and the messages said to no longer exist is the implication that she has something to hide. None of her critics – at least those among congressional Republicans pushing her to reveal more – have come right out and said she purposely destroyed politically-damaging evidence that could hamper any plans to run for president next year. **SNIP** “The Benghazi panel has already said it will bring Clinton in to testify at least twice – once privately about her email use while at State and at another public hearing on the...

    Hillary's misfeasance is grounds for 'Spoliation of Evidence' charges vis-a-vis Benghazi. If that's not enough, add on top the State Departments unaccounted for 6 Billion US dollars. But we all know the fix is in. The money was used to fund secret projects that avoided all Congressional oversight. Probably slipped millions to supporters and bought some temporary friends in high places. From the Wiki The spoliation inference is a negative evidentiary inference that a finder of fact can draw from a party's destruction of a document or thing that is relevant to an ongoing or reasonably foreseeable civil or criminal...

    ...Hillary’s private email server acted as portal to a private intelligence network that included retired members of special operations, former CIA clandestine personnel and foreign informers. Acting in some indeterminate capacity over it was Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to president Bill Clinton and now apparently a retainer to the family dynasty. It was the compromise of Blumenthal’s emails by the Romanian hacker Guccifer that in part led to journalists to discover Hillary’s private email account. Publicly available sources describe Guccifer as a taxi driver who penetrated the email accounts of the Bush family, Colin Powell and of course Sidney Blumenthal...

    Secretary of State John Kerry sent a letter to the State Department’s Inspector General requesting a review of email and records management, the State Department said today. The timing of Kerry’s request has many asking if this push for reform is connected to former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s recent scandal involving her use of a private email server, rather than a State Department account. State Department Spokesman Jeff Rathke denied this had anything to do with Clinton, citing instead the State Department’s need to better manage the overwhelming number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and requests for information from...

The civil suit, filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, argues that Clinton used her private emails to sell access to other officials in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation.

    It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards. The simple question was asked by Bill O'Reilly of the Fox News Channel, and it was addressed to two Democrats. He asked what has Hillary Clinton ever accomplished. The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O'Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking about was an accomplishment.

Support for Clinton's candidacy has dropped about 15 percentage points since mid-February among Democrats, with as few as 45 percent saying they would support her in the last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll. Support from Democrats likely to vote in the party nominating contests has dropped only slightly less, to a low in the mid-50s over the same period. Even Democrats who said they were...

    WASHINGTON – There’s no love lost between the Clintons and the Obamas. But they have much in common.

Likewise, so is Barack Hussein Obama. It’s no bulletin to anyone at this point, but, under the circumstances, it’s worth noting again that Alinksy dedicated his famous “Rules for Radicals” to...

    In the Western monarchies of bygone days, the Divine Right of Kings stated, although less colloquially: “If God didn’t want me to be your king, I wouldn’t be your king, so it is evidently the Will of God that I rule. Thus, as your sovereign, I am not subject to your will; you are subject to mine, so suck it up and obey.” The rationale was that the ruler answered only to God – which I imagine was very convenient for those rulers with a tyrannical bent. Of course, that was a major bit of medieval propaganda calculated to engender...

    Former Secretary Clinton use of private email for her state correspondence with foreign dignitaries and persons removed her actions from public scrutiny and political accountability, converting her State Department post into a private diplomatic backchannel. Her actions have the potential to be among the most dangerous precedents for use of executive power.

Our Framers did not insert that clause just to empower a president; they did it to make the president and his...

    In her Tuesday press conference defending her reliance on a private email system while serving as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton claimed that the "vast majority" of emails were sent to other State Department employees and therefore automatically archived. But State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Friday told reporters that it wasn't until last month that the State Department started automatically archiving emails — and it's only being done for senior staff. "Our goal is to apply this [automatic archiving] to all employee mailboxes by the end of 2016," Psaki said, according to Politico. On Tuesday, Clinton said, "It was...

    "For any government employee, it is that government employee's responsibility to determine what's personal and what's work-related," Hillary Clinton said in her March 10 press conference called to address mounting concerns over her use of a private email system for official use during her four years as Secretary of State. The phrase "any government employee" made it sound as if Clinton's actions were perfectly normal — no different than anybody else. In reality, Clinton's actions reflect her sense of privilege, a broader problem for her presidential ambitions than the email scandal itself. Even before the most recent scandal, Clinton faced...
  • 'Major Disconnect':Why No Red Flags in Clinton’s Use of Personal Email?(Emailed 100 Gov't Officials)

    Hillary Clinton was emailing more than 100 government officials for four years on a personal account. Her office even says the practice was “widely known” to those colleagues, since her address was visible. So why no red flags? While Clinton says she followed the rules, questions are mounting over why administration and government information security officials apparently did little to nudge her back into using the government system – which various guidelines make clear is preferred, if not legally required. Part of the problem may be that a key IT office has been plagued with problems and confusion for years....

    A GOP member of the House Select Committee on Benghazi says “all options are on the table” to gain access to Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.) said the full House could even vote to issue a subpoena for the device. While members of the panel “certainly believe that that shouldn’t be necessary … I think all options are on the table right now. It’s unclear exactly where this will go,” Brooks said during an interview with Fox News’s “On the Record.” “This is highly unusual that we find ourselves in this situation,” she added, noting the...

    Hillary Clinton's defenders say she's sufficiently explained why she set up a do-it-yourself home email system when she was secretary of state, insist there's nothing to see here, and it's time to move on. You know who disagrees? The senior-most freedom-of-information official in the executive branch of the United States government for over a quarter-century, whose job it was to help four administrations — including the Clinton White House — interpret the Freedom of Information Act, offer advice, and testify before Congress on their behalf. Daniel Metcalfe doesn't buy her explanation. In fact, he calls it laughable. Hillary Clinton defends...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s efforts to douse the growing furor over her possibly illegal private email system are not going well.The Obama White House, which claims the president knew nothing about Clinton’s surreptitious email system, unceremoniously threw the former cabinet member under the bus this week.“Frankly, the secretary’s handling of her own personal email and the maintenance of [her] personal email inbox is something that I’m not going to comment on and not particularly interested in,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.President Obama, who reportedly detests the Clintons, may himself have played a role in revealing Hillary’s...
  • Early-Onset Clinton Fatigue [Krauthammer At His Best!]

    Early-Onset Clinton Fatigue by CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER March 12, 2015 Hillary is already reminding us of the notorious Clintonian chicanery of the 1990s. She burned the tapes. Had Richard Nixon burned his tapes, he would have survived Watergate. Sure, there would have been a major firestorm, but no smoking gun. Hillary Rodham was a young staffer on the House Judiciary Committee investigating Nixon. She saw. She learned. Today you don’t burn tapes. You delete e-mails. Hillary Clinton deleted 30,000, dismissing their destruction with the brilliantly casual: “I didn’t see any reason to keep them.” After all, they were private and personal,...

    Those were the days. It was June, 2011. 24,000 pages of former Gov. Sarah Palin’s emails were released by the state of Alaska. She had resigned as governor nearly two years before, and was by then a happy private citizen. The media were so interested in getting into every nook and cranny of those emails that they facilitated their release, and then crowdsourced processing them. The Guardian even published a guide. “We think it’s important to get the documents out into the world as soon as possible and see what you think about them – just like we did with...

    The Justice Department begged a federal judge to not tell Fox News reporter James Rosen that it was tracking his telephone calls and emails in a probe regarding a national security leak. U.S. Attorney Ron Machen argued in 2010 that the traditional 30-day notice period did not apply to Rosen as Justice secretly monitored his Gmail account, according to new exhibits unsealed this week and disclosed by The Hill. “Where, as here, the government seeks such contents through a search warrant, no notice to the subscriber or customer of the e-mail account is statutorily required or necessary,” Machen wrote in...

    Freedom of Information Act Expert: Clinton's Email System "Laughable" By Nick Gass 3/12/15 A top freedom-of-information expert isn’t buying Hillary Clinton’s explanation of why she set up her own email system to conduct official State Department business, calling it “laughable.” Daniel Metcalfe, who advised White House administrations on interpreting the Freedom of Information Act from 1981 to 2007, told The Canadian Press that the former secretary of state acted “contrary to both the letter and the spirit of the law.” “There is no doubt that the scheme she established was a blatant circumvention of the Freedom of Information Act, atop...

    Clinton Faces Broader Email Deception Issue Involving Entire State Department MAR 12, 2015 • BY MICHAEL ASTRUE Hillary Clinton’s email problems do not end with her illegal privatization of government communications or her Nixonian stonewalling of questions about how much of her public record she has destroyed in order to avoid public scrutiny. She must also defend her broader record at the State Department—a record of building information technology systems designed to keep the vast majority of public records from becoming public. In 2009 the State Department began an overhaul of its email system in order to bring its system...
