  • Why Are The Salaries Of A Quarter-Million Federal Employees - Paid For By You - A State Secret?

    Why is the U.S. government withholding salary information on nearly 255,000 employees whose salaries are paid for by American taxpayers? Over the past 11 years, our organization, OpenTheBooks.com, summed up and posted online the salaries and bonus information for nearly every person employed in federal government agencies – a tally that mostly keeps growing and growing. This year, our auditors filed our standard Freedom of Information Act request for the same information in Fiscal Year 2017 – and we got a big surprise. For the first time, the government’s response involved massive and targeted deletions of salary data. A total...
  • IMF urges Ukraine to end delay over anti-corruption court

    The International Monetary Fund has urged Ukraine to end months of delay over the creation of an independent anti-corruption court seen as key to combating widespread graft in the country after a visit to Kiev last week. In a statement on Monday, the FundÂ’s representative in Ukraine stressed that further progress on the court, natural gas pricing, and fiscal policy changes were necessary conditions to unlock more loans from a derailed $17.5bn assistance package. Nearly $9bn has been received by Ukraine from the IMF package so far, and future tranches are seen as key to boosting the countryÂ’s economy. Goesta...

    After 9/11, and not one American asked where the $30 billion in gold stolen was, or the missing $2.3 trillion the Pentagon didn’t find, theft of American taxdollars went up! Now the Pentagon can’t find over $ 9 trillion dollars and no one cares but Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy. Where would Americans be today if the theft of trillions from their nation never left? Congressman Trey Gowdy is upset that with countless agencies investigating waste, fraud, and abuse, there aren’t more criminal punishments. Trey Gowdy also asks about negligence, gross negligence, and criminal negligence numbers.

    Thousands of supporters of the deported former Georgian leader Mikheil Saakashvili have marched through the streets of Kiev, demanding the impeachment of the Ukrainian president. Journalists said an estimated 10,000 people took part in the rally on Sunday, though the ministry of internal affairs put the number at about 3,000. Protesters carried banners portraying President Petro Poroshenko with a red line drawn over his face. The demonstrators chanted “impeachment”, “resignation” and “Poroshenko is a thief”. Saakashvili, 50, who had been living in exile in Ukraine, was detained by masked men at a restaurant in central Kiev and deported to Poland...

    "I am very sorry to all the clean athletes we cheated," former Russian anti-doping laboratory director Grigory Rodchenkov said in correspondence to The Associated Press. Rodchenkov, who lives in hiding, denied claims by Russian President Vladimir Putin that his unmasking of the scandal was being controlled by U.S. agencies. "As usual, Putin is misinformed," Rodchenkov said. "I am speaking the truth. No one is influencing me." Rodchenkov also berated the Court of Arbitration for Sport for overturning lifetime Olympic bans on Russians, saying the ruling gave the impression to clean competitors that "we don't care about you." Asked whether he...

    “We are sliding back,” the Ukrainian journalist turned parliamentarian Serhiy Leshchenko warned a year ago about the arc of political reform in his country. At the time, his assessment sounded alarmist, but it rings true today. Since the 2014 Euromaidan revolution, reformers in and out of Ukraine’s government have tried to remake a fiscally troubled and deeply corrupt country into a Western-oriented, rules-based one, but have only partially succeeded. Ukraine’s future as an independent and sovereign state will depend as much on winning its internal war on corruption and fixing its broken government as on keeping Russia contained in the...

    Just when you thought the Deep State swamp couldn't get any murkier and the stench any more repugnant, we are reminded by Judicial Watch's Tom Fitton in a Feb. 13 tweet of how Robert Mueller's FBI worked with Lois Lerner's IRS to target Tea Party and other groups in the run-up to the Obama re-election campaign: @JudicialWatch lawsuit uncovered how Mueller's FBI worked with Lois Lerner's IRS to try to prosecute the very groups Obama IRS was suppressing. Another reason I don't trust Mr. Mueller – or the FBI! @JudicialWatch lawsuit uncovered how Mueller's FBI worked with Lois Lerner's IRS...

    Judicial Watch Director of Investigations Chris Farrell is calling for the complete abolishment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) beginning with the resignation of its director, Christopher Wray, after failing to protect American citizens. The law enforcement agency has come under scrutiny for becoming too politicized in the probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and the Russian dossier that may have helped authorities obtain FISA warrants to conduct surveillance on Trump campaign officials. “I would go back 200 years to the U.S. Marshal Service. I would create a new division for...

    NEW YORK – It has been five months since the FBI arrested 10 men in a sweeping federal probe into the underbelly of the basketball world. As the three ongoing criminal cases resulting from the investigation plod along, it’s increasingly unlikely there will be another wave of double-digit arrests. More legal charges still could come, but what’s becoming increasingly clear as the discovery portion of the case comes to a close is that the breadth of potential NCAA rules violations uncovered is wide enough to fundamentally and indelibly alter the sport of college basketball.

    West Hollywood, CA — The family and friends of Gemmel Moore, 26, are fighting an uphill battle to bring the man they say is responsible for his death to justice. Not surprisingly, the fact that Moore, who worked as a male escort, was found dead at the home of 63-year-old Ed Buck—who’s donated hundreds of thousands to Hillary Clinton—has received very little media coverage. On July 27, Moore’s body was discovered inside the West Hollywood apartment of Ed Buck. Buck is a well connected and extremely wealthy political activist who gives massive amounts of money to the Democratic party. His...

    Israel’s Prime Minister has just developed a new political, if not legal problem. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that an existing problem has moved into a new, serious phase. There have been rumors and accusations swirling around Netanyahu for quite a while now, alleging that he’s been involved in official corruption in the form of accepting gifts and donations in exchange for political favors. The Prime Minister has continually scoffed at these stories, calling them politically motivated attacks and basically saying that there’s no “there” there. Unfortunately for him, the police have now recommended that bribery charges...

    Investigators with the Department of Veterans Affairs will release a report accusing VA Secretary David Shulkin, MD, of wrongly accepting Wimbledon tickets and paying for his wife's airfare with taxpayer funds during a European trip last summer, USA Today reports. Here are five things to know about the allegations. 1. Dr. Shulkin's lawyers deemed the accusations, scheduled to be released this week, unfair and questionable. "The draft report ignores critical facts, presenting a one-sided version of events that casts aside evidence contradicting your chosen narrative," lawyers Justin Shur, Eric Nitz and Emily Damrau wrote in draft rebuttal obtained by USA...

    Obama appointee and former CIA director John Brennan is the target of a perjury investigation by the House Intelligence Committee. Chairman Devin Nunes is turning his attention to the role the CIA played in promoting the Steele dossier. Brennan said under oath that he didn't know who commissioned the dossier and that it was not used to conclude that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign. Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document, even though senior national security and counterintelligence officials at the Justice Department and FBI knew the previous year that...

    In the past few weeks the story of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign has taken a turn that the progressive socialist wing of the Democrat party did not expect. While proving in its length and far reaching investigation, the Special Council has all but proven that the collusion charges started by Hillary Clinton and her sycophants in the mainstream media is nothing more than the wishful thinking based on a baseless lie. As the media breathlessly proclaim that they are getting closer to the facts they need to impeach Trump for working with the Russians more and more facts...

    Todd Howe, the prosecution’s star witness against Joseph Percoco, was arrested Thursday night after admitting in court that he likely had violated his cooperation deal with the feds, a source told The Post. Howe “was remanded back to custody for violating the terms of his bail,” said Nicholas Biase with the Manhattan US Attorney’s Office. Asked if Howe — who is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan — will still testify Monday in the corruption trial, the US Attorney’s Office declined comment. Under cross-examination Thursday, the longtime associate of Gov. Cuomo admitted he lied to his...
