    The plan by climate alarmists to have other scientists imprisoned for their ‘global warming’ skepticism is backfiring horribly, and the chief alarmist is now facing a House investigation into what has been called “the largest science scandal in US history.”

    Let’s not shy away from what the Secret Service actually was up to in the matter of its illegal spying on Representative Jason Chaffetz: conspiracy to commit blackmail against a member of Congress. Representative Chaffetz has been investigating the scandal-plagued protective agency — the habitual drunkenness and whoring of its agents, among other things — when Secret Service personnel improperly accessed his protected records in a hunt for dirt. The aim of this was made clear by assistant director Ed Lowery, who wrote to assistant director Faron Paramore: “Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out.” Critics...

    An Indiana lawmaker has abruptly resigned after a sex video was reportedly discovered on his phone. Rep. Jud McMillin, the second-highest ranking Republican in the state's House of Representatives, stepped down Tuesday a week after he sent a bizarre text message to several people apologizing for "anything offensive" they may have received from his stolen phone.

    Former President Bill Clinton called the controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email address and server while in office “catnip” for Republicans in an interview released Saturday. “The other party doesn’t want to run against her and if they do they want her as mangled up as possible,” Clinton told CNN‘s Fareed Zakaria. “They know that if they leak things and say things they know that that is catnip to the people who get bored talking about ‘what’s your position on student loan relief.'”

    There is only one guaranteed way to get fired from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Falsifying records won’t do it. Prescribing obsolete drugs won’t do it. Cutting all manner of corners on health and safety is, at worst, going to get you a reprimand. No, the only sure-fire way to get canned at the VA is to report any of these matters to authorities who might do something about it. That, at least, is what the U.S. Office of Special Counsel recently reported to the president of the United States. The Special Counsel’s office is the agency to which government...

    A Fiorina spokesperson denied wrongdoing. Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is known for her aggressive views on Iran, as well as her position as the former CEO of Hewlett Packard (HP). But, how many people know that HP products were sold in Iran during her time as CEO, in spite of U.S. sanctions that were in place? -snip- From 1999-2004, during Fiorina’s time as CEO, the company’s lobbyists consistently sought “unilateral sanctions reform legislation.” The issue of HP products being sold in Iran was brought up during Fiorina’s 2010 run for a U.S. Senate seat in California.

    Carly Fiorina brings a Texas ranching legacy to the presidential campaign. And one Texas rancher has come forth to help. Although she’s known more as a California Republican, Fiorina was born in Austin to the Sneed family, Texans since 1839 and known for oil, cattle ranching, cotton farming and for an early 20th-century love-triangle feud and scandal. In the 1960s, she grew up spending summers with her grandparents in a historic home in Calvert, between Waco and Bryan. ~snip~ In a 2003 Houston speech, Fiorina said, “We had a little bit of cattle in our family, a little bit of...

    Over the past dozen years, Hewlett-Packard has sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of printers and other products to Iran through a Middle East distributor, sidestepping a U.S. ban on trade with the country. Now the person who headed HP for much of that time, Carly Fiorina, is ramping up to run for U.S. Senate. And questions are emerging about what Fiorina knew about HP's growing presence in Iran during her six-year tenure at the Silicon Valley firm from 1999 to 2005. With Iran drawing condemnation abroad for its suspected pursuit of nuclear weapons and crackdown on government dissidents,...

    The scandal surrounding US intelligence reports on ISIS just hit President Barack Obama's inner circle. James Clapper, America's top spy, is reportedly in "frequent and unusual contact" with the military officer who is suspected of allowing US reports on ISIS to be altered to fit the administration's official line, Spencer Ackerman at The Guardian reports. "In communications, Clapper, who is far more senior than Grove, is said to tell Grove how the war looks from his vantage point, and question Grove about Central Command’s assessments," Ackerman writes. "Such a situation could place inherent pressure on a subordinate, sources said." Clapper,...

    For nearly a quarter-century, Hillary Rodham Clinton has played an outsized role in the nation’s consciousness as an advocate and a political survivor. Her presidential campaign’s favorite way to describe her is as “a fighter.” But something surprising has emerged in public opinion about the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. Asked to name something tangible that Clinton has actually accomplished, many voters come up blank. In polls and focus groups, Republicans are sensing a vulnerability in Clinton’s record that could compound the difficulties she is facing with the controversy over her decision as secretary of state to...

    The U.S. State Department plans to move about 50 workers into temporary jobs to bolster the office sifting through Hillary Clinton's emails and grappling with a vast backlog of other requests for information to be declassified, officials said on Tuesday. The move illustrates the huge administrative burden caused by Clinton's decision to use a private email address for official communications as secretary of state and a judge's ruling in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that they be released. Clinton on Tuesday for the first time apologized for her use of private email, telling ABC News: "That was a...

    The United Nations body that oversees greenhouse gas reductions is reeling from another cap-and-trade scandal that may have put 600 million tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere — roughly speaking, the annual CO2 output of Canada or Britain — while the emissions were ostensibly suppressed, according to an independent study. In the process, the fraudsters, largely in Russia and Ukraine, were likely able to transfer credits for more than 400 million tons of their apparently bogus greenhouse savings by April 2015 into Europe's commercial carbon trading system — the largest in the world — thereby undermining that continent's ambitious...

Not doing so was a mistake. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility,” Clinton wrote. The extended note came hours after she offered up a four-word apology in an interview with ABC News. Just yesterday, Clinton had told the Associated Press an apology was not necessary because “what I did...

Their entire system got hacked--not just member accounts and credit-card info, but internal company data, too. And the most interesting stuff to come out of it isn't about Ashley Madison's clientele: It's about the company itself. Ashley Madison had always sounded like a scam to me. The site claimed 37 million users, which, if true, would be an enormous percentage of America's married population. (That would be roughly half of all married people between the ages of 25 and 55....

    LITTLE ROCK -- Is it the first sign of desperation or just force of habit on her part? Or maybe even clever strategy, however unprincipled or untruthful. For whatever reason, Hillary Rodham Clinton has decided to accuse a slew of Republican governors and presidential candidates of "systematically and deliberately" trying to deny millions of Americans, mainly the poor and black, of their right to vote. Now some of her Republican rivals, unimaginative but ever-hopeful types that they are, have begun to fight back by reciting the facts, little as those may matter to Ms., Mrs., Sen., Secretary, First Lady, Presidential...

I gotta tell you, I expected to see like a bi-racial looking Hally Berry type thing.. It’s not even close. She looks like a whiter version of the cousin from Arrested Development. If you’re going to fake being black.. why go full Wanda Sykes? At this point and it’s likely to change, the top three hashtags Rachel Dolezal #TransRacial #WrongSkin on twitter have been, for several hours. yet no liberal site is...

    Unbelievable: SHADY Nigerian official gave MILLIONS to Clinton Foundation while Hillary COVERED for BOKO HARAM The Hillary scandals are getting so bad that it really does seem like we’re making them up, but we’re not. The latest is an attempt to solve the mystery behind why the government was so late to designating Boko Haram a “terrorist organization.” Unbelievably, it might have to do with a million dollar donor to the Clinton Foundation and his possible terrorist ties: A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency’s refusal to place Boko Haram...

    IRS sends Congress unsigned form letter to brush off demands for Clinton Foundation investigation The IRS responded to a Republican request for an investigation into the Clinton Foundation's tax-exempt status with a one-page form letter that starts with "Dear Sir or Madam." In May, more than 50 House Republicans asked the IRS to review the Clinton Foundation's tax-exempt status, after it became clear that the foundation had failed to report millions of dollars in grants from foreign governments. That letter, led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, said a review was "appropriate" given that this money was accepted and not...

    Everyone has a FOIA horror story, though the one told by Vice News investigative reporter Jason Leopold in today’s FOIA hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee deserves its very own headline. When asked about why some agencies just refuse to cough up material, Leopold offered this example: Leopold: The Office of Net Assessment (ONA) is the Pentagon’s in-house think tank. They spend millions and millions of dollars putting together reports — reports that they contract out about perhaps some futuristic warfare, or what the situation in the Middle East is going to look like with regards to...
