  • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 1/19/2017 | staff
    In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their...
  • The California Gathering That Hatched Plan to Prosecute Skeptics of Climate Change

    Just before joining climate change activist and former Vice President Al Gore for a press conference in New York City, seven state-level attorneys general huddled with a representative of the Union of Concerned Scientists. The political activist, Peter Frumhoff, called for them and other elected officials to move decisively against major corporations and institutions for “denying” climate change. The seeds of that call to action in March were planted four years earlier at a gathering of environmental activists, trial lawyers, and academics across the country in San Diego. The Daily Signal found this and other revealing bits of information among material...

    The EPA is without a doubt the most corrupt agency in the Obama Administration. That’s saying something when you consider the fact that there have been over a dozen scandals during his reign. Remember when the EPA accidentally dumped millions of gallons of toxic waste into the drinking water that was used by thousands of people? They’ve never been punished for it in a meaningful way and apparently that could change very soon. From The Daily Signal: “New Mexico and Colorado are both suing the EPA, and now the Supreme Court has asked the acting solicitor general of the United...
  • The main problem with prosecuting Hillary

    The main problem with prosecuting the Hildabeast... The problem with prosecuting Hilda would be keeping the jury awake for the four or five hours it would take for the DA to read off the list of crimes she's guilty of. This is similar to the big joke you see in Sergio Leone's classic Western "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" in which the sheriff begins reading off the list of crimes Tuco (Eli Wallach) is wanted for. At that point Eastwood walks into a saloon and begins questioning people about something or other and takes his time at it...
  • Trump letting Hillary off the hook is his biggest mistake yet

    NY Post ^ | 11-22-16 | Michael Goodwin
    At first blush, Donald Trump’s decision to swear off criminal investigations of Hillary Clinton didn’t look like a good idea. At second blush, it looks like a terrible idea. The decision, dribbled out in a TV report and then confirmed by aide Kellyanne Conway, is too momentous to come in bits and pieces and from anyone other than Trump directly. He made the pledge at a debate to appoint a special prosecutor, and it smacks of Washington-as-usual for the reversal to slither out the back door. Yet instead of the president-elect personally explaining his big decision, the public got snippets...

    Kellyanne Conway appeared this morning on CNN’s New Day, where the Donald Trump campaign manager broke down the message and strategy behind the mogul’s upset victory in the presidential election. Conway began by talking about the “very gracious” call where Hillary Clinton admitted her defeat to Trump over the phone. She also talked at length about how the Trump campaign’s plan came to fruition in the battleground states, as well as her tweet last night about how there was at least one pollster (herself) who saw what was coming where many did not. After Conway discussed the impact Trump voters wanted to make on the government, Alisyn Camerota asked her about...

    Interesting to note that Paula Broadwell "Was Not Charged with a Single Crime" Here's why: Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and FBI Director James B. Comey listened as prosecutors did a mock run-through of the government’s case, a preview of how they would present their evidence to Petraeus’s lawyers in order, they hoped, to force a guilty plea. The presentation included felony charges: lying to the FBI and violating a section of the Espionage Act. A conviction on either carried potentially years in prison. They were also considering bringing the same charges against Petraeus’s biographer and former mistress, Paula...

    16 examples of left-wingers trying--and in some cases succeeding--in putting their adversaries in jail After GOP candidate Donald Trump vowed to seek prosecution of Democrat Hillary Clinton should he become president, the professional Left melted down. Trump was prominently labeled a would-be dictator who would turn America into a banana republic (something the Obama administration has largely already accomplished by undermining the rule of law). But the Left criminalizes politics and public policy differences all the time.

    The New York Times ^ | 08 September 2016 | Jim Dwyer
    Here is the case of a missing paragraph that turned into a trap door that dropped a man into prison. The paragraph vanished from a police report in a Brooklyn criminal case, but essential information has been hidden from people accused of crimes in courthouses across the country. Even though failing to share exculpatory information is among the most serious breaches of ethics and law for the police and prosecutors, there is little personal or institutional accountability for such tactics. In 2010, to convict a man named Wayne Martin of killing two people during a stickup of a Brooklyn tire...

    American Thinker ^ | June 3, 2016 | Rick Moran
    Despite being approved by two committees, a bill that would have criminalized opposition to climate change died in the California senate. The bill would have targeted fossil fuel companies, think tanks, and individuals who, in the eyes of prosecutors, “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.”Washington Times: The measure, which cleared two Senate committees, provided a four-year window in the statute of limitations on violations of the state’s Unfair Competition Law, allowing legal action to be brought until Jan. 1 on charges of climate change “fraud” extending back indefinitely. “This bill explicitly authorizes district attorneys and...

    Judicial Watch today released new State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages) that again appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009. Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

    As a former prosecutor and now defense attorney, I’ve had a number of thoughts about Clinton’s case, which mostly deal with tactics and logistics and not so much with the actual evidence itself. For these thoughts, I put myself in the shoes of the U.S. Attorney who gets this case dumped in his lap. What, exactly, are you dealing with? 1. Your defendant, thanks to the very graft machine you are expected to prosecute, will have access to almost unlimited financial resources. Unless the FBI has identified all the shady “shell corporations” where Hillary has hidden her money, and you...

    Given the dire warnings over the threat of global warming, it would be reasonable to expect nearly two decades without a rise in average global temperature to be cause for celebration. Not so. Instead, it’s a call for more punishing legislation. WND reported last September efforts by some two-dozen scientists with major U.S. universities to convince President Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act – RICO – to prosecute opponents who deny mankind is causing catastrophic changes in the climate. Now, a California state senator is proposing a law that would make climate “deception” prosecutable for 30...

    Attorney Ilan Katz, who is heading the defense team for the soldier who last Thursday shot a wounded terrorist in Hevron, said on Wednesday that the soldier's lawyers will not agree to him being stood on trial for homicide. In the incident, the soldier was filmed by an Arab activist for the radical leftist NGO B'Tselem shooting a terrorist, who minutes earlier together with an accomplice stabbed and wounded a soldier. The soldier has argued he shot the terrorist over concerns he was moving to detonate a bomb belt that was thought to be hidden under his unseasonable coat. That...

Trump suggested that, were the people of America to allow him to serve as president, he would look into prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her various alleged crimes surrounding the unsecured email server.
