    It is being (reported) that the United States Department of State, while Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, blocked investigations into the Mosque that was attended by Omar Mateen, the Islamic terrorist that carried out the worst mass shooting in United States history at a Orlando nightclub on Sunday morning. According to the recent reporting Hillary Clinton’s State Department did not investigate the Orlando killers Mosque because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.” Which is more staggering proof that the lefts ideology of political correctness is indirectly leading to innocent citizens being murdered.

    Sandra Miller was at work in January when her daughter called from their home here on Oakridge Drive with alarming news. The house was making loud noises, as if someone had jumped off the counter and landed with a bang. For seconds afterward, the house shook. A while later, it happened again, and again. Over the next several hours, terrifying bangs rattled the house. The next morning, Ms. Miller called Bill Neal, a structural engineer, who delivered the same stunning news to her that he has now told hundreds of homeowners: The concrete foundation was crumbling and, as a result,...

    The late Claremont Institute scholar, Harry V. Jaffa, opened an essay he wrote called "The American Founding as the Best Regime," discussing the meaning of the words of the preamble to our Constitution. Included in those words, laying out the purpose of the Constitution is the phrase, to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity." Jaffa says that "No words of the Constitution reveal the intention of the Constitution," more than these. "What is a blessing?" asks Jaffa. It is "what is good in the eyes of God," he answers. Jaffa then turns to the closing words...

    WASHINGTON — A new study details how President Barack Obama has been inviting his Obama Foundation donors to events at the White House, a venue that obviously won’t be available to him to entertain mega contributors in a few months. The Obama Foundation, created on Jan. 31, 2014, has to date only 39 contributors, with the money coming either from individuals or foundations controlled by Obama supporters. The nonprofit, nonpartisan Maplight Foundation found that 15 of the 39 have been to the White House for small meetings

    The State Department doled out $13 million in grants for longtime friend and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, according to federal records. The grants were provided in 18 separate transactions from the U.S. Agency for International Development to the Bangladesh-based Grameen bank, according to a Sunday evening report from the Daily Caller News Foundation, for which Yunus served as a founding board member. Groups associated with Yunus through business relationships received an additional $11 million. Yunus oversaw the distribution of microcredit loans to impoverished borrowers for the bank for over 30 years....
  • Bombshell: Clinton Foundation Donor’s Flight From Justice Aided by Hillary Allies

    Recent news reports indicate that the FBI is investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for granting favors to her family’s foundation donors and for its systematic accounting fraud. In January, the Sunday Times of London cited former Judge Andrew Napolitano, a conservative libertarian and frequent Fox News guest, as saying that the FBI was taking evidence “seriously” and that Hillary “could hear about that soon from the Department of Justice.” It’s hard to believe that the Obama administration and its hideously politicized Justice Department would ever indict Ms. Clinton, given that President Barack Obama picked her for secretary of...

    Lisa Jackson, the former Environmental Protection Agency administrator who was caught using an email account under the pseudonym “Richard Windsor,” sits on the board of the Clinton Foundation, the charity of Hillary Clinton, of HDR22@clintonemail.com fame. Jackson’s — or “Windsor’s” — position on the board has not been a secret, but it has received little media attention during the Clinton email scandal, which threatens to derail the Democrat’s White House hopes. Jackson’s biography on the Clinton Foundation’s website shows that she took her position there in 2013. The bio states that Jackson is currently vice president of environmental initiatives as...

In total, The Wall Street Journal reports, two dozen companies and groups, plus the Abu Dhabi government, gave Bill more than $8 million for speeches, even as they were hoping for favorable treatment from Hillary's bureaucracy.

    A for-profit educational corporation that has donated to the Clinton Foundation agreed to pay $95.5 million to the Obama administration as a settlement for a government lawsuit alleging that it was using illegal tactics to lure in prospective students. The Education Management Corporation was sued by the Department of Justice in 2011 for multiple recruitment violations, including paying its recruiters based on the number of students it enrolled, and exaggerating the career opportunities that were available to graduates. The lawsuit argued that the violations made the corporation ineligible for the $11 billion in state and federal financial aid it has...

    The Clinton Foundation will “amend” its tax returns for the last four years, to correct “errors in the report of donations from foreign governments,” as reported by Fox News. Foundation President Donna Shalala said in a statement that the returns were revised after a voluntary review of the charity’s past tax returns. She added that the corrections were not required by law. “There is no change in our bottom line numbers: assets, liabilities, and net assets,” Shalala wrote in a statement to the foundation’s supporters that was obtained by Reuters. “There is nothing to suggest that the Foundation intended to...

The MacArthur Foundation, which has operated in Moscow for more than 20 years - financing higher education, human rights and anti-nuclear proliferation campaigns - said new laws had made it "impossible to continue," by placing the charity on a list of "undesirable" organizations - a criticism it said was baseless.

    Hillary Clinton “re-launched” her floundering campaign Saturday on Roosevelt Island, formerly and fittingly known as Welfare Island. Clinton’s desperate effort to associate herself with “everyday Americans” contrasts starkly with the crooked elites with whom she and Bill normally cavort. In fact, the Clinton Foundation, Bill and Hillary’s elaborate slush fund, includes numerous donors and even one-time board members with dodgy backgrounds, shady dealings, and even criminal convictions that should repel rather than lure a once and perhaps future president of the United States. Peter Schweizer’s meticulously researched new best-seller Clinton Cash (complete with 635 endnotes) delineates this ultimate power couple’s...

The Swedish entity, called the William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse, was never disclosed to or cleared by State Department ethics officials, even though one of its largest sources of donations was a Swedish government-sanctioned lottery. As the money flowed to the foundation from Sweden, Mrs. Clinton’s team in Washington declined to...

    Among all the rivers of money that have flowed to the Clinton family, one seems to raise the biggest national security questions of all: the stream of cash that came from 20 foreign governments who relied on weapons export approvals from Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Federal law designates the secretary of state as “responsible for the continuous supervision and general direction of sales” of arms, military hardware and services to foreign countries. In practice, that meant that Clinton was charged with rejecting or approving weapons deals — and when it came to Clinton Foundation donors, Hillary Clinton’s State Department did...

    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, Sidney Blumenthal was no more than an old friend trying to help out by dropping her an occasional unsolicited e-mail with advice. And the only reason she listened, she said, was to keep from being “caught in the bubble” of hearing only from “a certain small group of people.” Now we know better. Turns out Blumenthal was no casual correspondent: He was repeatedly plying her with dubious “intelligence” on Libya — much of which turned out to be false, but which she nonetheless passed on to State Department underlings.

The Clinton Foundation reported Thursday that it has received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups. The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources...

Nevertheless, public records show that Saban’s nonprofit gave millions to the Clinton Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure. Saban, a billionaire best known for creating Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship and has spent heavily to support Israel. “His greatest concern, he says, is to protect Israel, by strengthening the United States-Israel relationship,” the New Yorker noted in a 2010 profile of Saban.

They didn’t ask: Who’s that shady guy standing next to Bill? What are his interests? How much money has he given to, or raised for, Bill, Hillary and their foundation? And what favorable treatment did the shady guy subsequently receive from Hillary? When you’re a political reporter, complexity is boring. Curiosity...

It might, in some very marginal way, help open up more space for a Democratic challenger." Chait is a liberal writing for the liberal New York Magazine.

    Richard Grenell, an American media commentator and the longest serving U.S. Spokesman at the United Nations, said that, revelations unveiled by Breitbart Senior editor Peter Schweizer in his bombshell book Clinton Cash were “actually quite shocking.” In a spellbinding week of interviews, media reports, and articles about the book, New York Times, Washington Post, Reuters and Fox News exposed that the Clinton Foundation was receiving huge amounts of cash from foreign governments, while Hillary was the acting Secretary of State. Grenell, an eight year state department veteran, told Breitbart News Sunday guest host, senior writer, Matthew Boyle, that the state...

    The Clinton Foundation acknowledged Sunday that the nonprofit group “made mistakes” in IRS filings and defended its disclosure of controversial contributions from a Canadian financier, following days of intense public scrutiny about foundation finances. “We made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them,” foundation executive Maura Pally wrote on the foundation website. “And [we] have taken steps to ensure they don´t happen in the future.” The donations were called into question last week by Peter Schweizer, author of the soon-to-be-released book “Clinton Cash.” Schweizer found Canadian financier Frank Giustra gave $31.1

    NEW YORK – While skimming tens of millions of dollars from U.N. levies imposed on airline travelers, the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Aids Initiative worked closely with a pharmaceutical company in India to distribute “drastically substandard” generic antiretroviral drugs to Third World countries that had no chance of helping HIV/AIDs patients, according to a Wall Street analyst. As WND reported Wednesday, over the past six weeks, Charles Ortel shared with WND, prior to publication, the results of his six-month, in-depth investigation into what he characterizes as an elaborate scheme devised by the Clintons to enrich themselves. WND reported Thursday the...

    On the surface, it isn’t that hard to understand the Clinton Cash scandal that Democrats are trying very hard to ignore this week. We have a former president making millions giving speeches and doing favors for wealthy foreign entities and nations that give massive sums to the Clinton family charity that subsidizes the lavish lifestyle of the former First Family. He did this at the same time as his wife spent four years as secretary of state where she made decisions that influence the fortunes of those donors. And all this was happening while said former first lady/secretary of state...

    The “vast right-wing conspiracy” is back. That was the phrase Hillary Clinton herself used to describe the villainous puppet masters behind the Monica Lewinsky scandal back in 1998. And now, her camp has decided to reanimate this ludicrous bogeyman from the days when pets.com was the talk of Wall Street to combat new allegations of Clintonian malfeasance — allegations the substance of which she and we don’t even yet know. ~snip~ We’ll see if Peter Schweizer has anything new. We’ve already seen we won’t see anything new from the Clintons. For them, sliming an enemy and denying everything have worked...

    UPDATE: It looks like Hillary's foreign donations headaches are just beginning. Via the New York Times, oh my: The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return. “We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes...“Clinton Cash” is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major...
