The cause of the blast was not immediately clear and it is not known if it is terrorism-related or whether it was a gas explosion.

    The State Department revealed Benghazi related material was found in searches of the approximately 14,900 deleted Hillary Clinton emails recovered by the FBI that were sent to State as potentially work-related. In March 2015 Hillary Clinton said she chose to delete only her personal emails: “E-mails about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes. No one wants their personal e-mails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy.”

    “Hillary Clinton’s attempt to delete the single worst week of her political career isn’t going to work. Her admission that there's a lot of smoke but no fire is a complete lie, and the American public’s response will be to do exactly as her campaign suggests: don’t vote for her. Clinton’s attempt to blame Colin Powell for her illegal email server backfired, and there’s no way the Clintons could go from dead broke to making more $250 million since leaving office without breaking the law and trading off their access to office. This is exactly why we need a Special...

    “Today proved to the American public what we have known all along – Hillary Clinton has no hope, no vision and no ideas for the future of our country. Clinton lied about her emails, she lied about Colin Powell, and today she lied about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is talking about issues; Hillary Clinton is talking about Donald Trump. Today, as she took a break from her Hillary-in-Hiding Tour, she missed another opportunity to talk about education, infrastructure, terrorism, healthcare, the economy and energy. We’re living in her head rent-free, and that must terrify the political insiders who want to...

Per the clip below, Gowdy reveals that Clinton used "BleachBit" to erase the "personal" emails from her private server. For those not familiar with the software, BleachBit is intended to help users delete files in a way to "prevent recovery" and "hide traces of files deleted." Per the BleachBit website: Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of...
  • Political injection: EpiPen maker offers discount after public outrage

    RT.com ^ | 25 August 2016
    Makers of the EpiPen auto-injector said they would offer a 50 percent discount after public outrage over a 500-percent price hike. Hillary Clinton was among those calling for the price reduction – and her supporters were quick to give her all the credit. EpiPen administers a quick dose of epinephrine to counter a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis. The easy-to-use injector is made by West Virginia-based Mylan Pharmaceuticals, which bought the rights to it in 2007. Since then, the price of the EpiPen has skyrocketed, going from $100 to $600. On Thursday, Reuters seemed to give Clinton the...

    Special to WorldTribune.com Jeffrey T. Kuhner Forget the establishment media, the rigged polls and the anti-Trump talking heads. The dirty secret of this election is that Donald Trump can win — and in a landslide. The reason is simple: America does not want a third Obama term. The only poll that truly matters is the one showing nearly 75 percent of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track. Leave aside Hillary Clinton’s fatal weaknesses and rampant criminal behavior — covertly arming and supporting ISIL, the disastrous war in Libya, Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, pay-for-play (which got former Illinois...

    WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange has accused Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of committing “extortion” by hyping fears over the possibility of a Republican victory in order to attract left-wing voters. Both Trump and Sanders supporters are waiting with bated breath for the next email dump from Julian Assange, the founder and editor in chief of Wikileaks. He released hacked emails last month showing Democratic National Committee officials plotting to defeat Mrs. Clinton’s chief rival, Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders.

    urkish tanks and other vehicles have rolled across the Syrian border after heavy shelling of an area held by so-called Islamic State (IS). Military sources told Turkish media 70 targets in the Jarablus area had been destroyed by artillery and rocket strikes, and 12 by air strikes. Turkish-backed Syrian rebels who are following the advance say they have entered the town of Jarablus itself. The operation is aimed against both IS and Kurdish fighters. Turkey shelled Syrian Kurdish forces in the region this week, determined not to let them fill the vacuum if IS leaves. US Vice-President Joe Biden warned...

But she didn't stick to her promise, according to new documents released by Judicial Watch Monday.

    The Turkish military and the U.S.-led coalition forces launched an operation in the Jarablus region of Syria to clear its borders from the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group early on Wednesday. The operation began at around 4 a.m. with the Turkish artillery launching intense fire on the region followed by Turkish warplanes bombing IS targets. The military operation aimed at clearing the Turkish border from "terrorist elements," halting the new wave of refugee flows and delivering humanitarian aid to civilians in the region, the last significant town held by the jihadist group on the border with Turkey.

Judicial Watch obtained the records and hundreds more pages of Abedin emails as part of its ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department. “I’m going to have ambassador ride on next drive,” wrote Abedin. “There’s a bunch of burn stuff in the pocket of my front seat.” And seemingly realizing the...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump urged for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure as US secretary of state during a rally in Akron, Ohio, on Monday. Trump accused his Democratic rival of corruption, claiming that donors of the foundation were given preferential treatment and awarded with special favors. He went on to say that the investigation calls for special circumstances, as the US Department of Justice "has proven itself to be a political arm of the White House."

    A defiant Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he again restored the voting rights of about 13,000 felons who served their time after his previous attempt was thwarted by Republican lawmakers and the state Supreme Court. Virginia's highest court ruled in July that governors cannot restore rights en masse, but must consider each offender on a case-by-case basis. That ruling invalidated a sweeping executive order issued by McAuliffe in April that had given back the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences. McAuliffe blasted the court Monday for ignoring the "the clear text of the...

    The latest in the email scandal plaguing the campaign of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has provided proof of what many on the right have known all along — that then-Secretary of State Clinton left Americans to die in Benghazi. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta gave testimony in 2013 stating that there was no time to get help to Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, where four Americans died. An email obtained by Judicial Watch and recently released appears to be in direct contradiction of this claim. Fox News reported that an urgent email from Panetta’s Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash...

    Months after the Obama administration advised school districts that transgender students should be given access to bathrooms based on their gender identity, a federal judge in Texas has blocked the guidance from going into effect — for now. U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor has granted a preliminary, nationwide injunction in response to a lawsuit filed by Texas and a number of other states. As we've reported, the lawsuit argues that the guidance from the White House would turn schools "into laboratories for a massive social experiment." The preliminary injunction would mean that, until that lawsuit works its way through the...

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll released Monday shows Donald Trump closing in on Hillary Clinton's lead -- which now stands at 0.7 percent -- possibly a reflection of the Republican sticking largely to the issues last week.

Trump's rise in the UPI/CVoter poll could indicate voters are being swayed by what the real estate mogul says -- and doesn't say --...
