    Documents obtained ifrom the state department by Judicial Watch as part of an FOIA suit show that Hillary Clinton's top aide Huma Abedin facilitated meetings between Clinton Foundation donors and the secretary of state. In several cases, the donors were forced to go through the Clinton Foundation to arrange the meeting after normal channels had denied them access.

    The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), the Clinton foundation’s flagship project, may chose to ignore the organization’s recent decision to stop accepting money from foreign governments and cooperations. “CHAI is a separate legal entity from the Clinton Foundation with its own Board,” CHAI spokeswoman Regan Lachapelle told Reuters on Friday. “The CHAI Board will be meeting soon to determine its next steps.”

    Hillary Clinton released her latest federal income tax return Friday, further pressuring Republican opponent Donald Trump, who is now the first major-party presidential candidate since 1976 to refuse to release tax returns. The Clintons’ 2015 personal tax return showed the Democratic Party presidential nominee and her husband Bill earned $10.6 million in 2015, while paying $3.24 million in federal income taxes. Their tax return showed the Clintons paid an effective federal tax rate of 34.2 percent and an effective state and local tax rate of 9 percent, totaling a combined tax rate of 43.2 percent for last year, according to...

    Emails released yesterday from Judicial Watch reveal several instances where Hillary Clinton and her aides were asked for favors from Clinton Foundation donors. Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a FOIA request. Although appearing to have relevance to her work as Secretary of State, Clinton failed to turn the documents over to the State Department, even as she claimed all "work-related" emails had been turned in. One email from Douglas Band, former aide to President Clinton and CEO of Teneo Holdings with close ties to the Clinton Foundation, asked Clinton staffers to intervene and find a job for an unnamed...

    A State Department spokeswoman said Wednesday that the agency does not believe Hillary Clinton violated any ethics requirements by interacting with Clinton Foundation donors. "We feel confident that all the rules were followed," Elizabeth Trudeau, State Department spokeswoman, said amid a backlash over previously undisclosed emails that showed the special access foundation donors enjoyed in the early months of Clinton's tenure at the agency. Trudeau shut down questions during the agency's daily briefing about emails that suggested a Clinton Foundation official had informed one of Clinton's top aides that it was "important to take care of" an individual whose name...

    Is there anyone Bill Clinton wouldn't take money from? The jury is out on that one. And I do mean a jury, rather than a Sharia court. Former President Bill Clinton collected $5.6 million in fees from GEMS Education, a Dubai-based company that teaches Sharia Law through its network of more than 100 schools in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation. The company’s finances strictly adhere to “Sharia Finance,” which includes giving “zakat,” a religious tax of which one-eighth of the proceeds is dedicated to funding Islamic jihad. The company also contributed...

    For months, a small team of U.S. Navy investigators and federal prosecutors secretly devised options for a high-stakes international manhunt. Could the target be snatched from his home base in Asia and rendered to the United States? Or held captive aboard an American warship? Making the challenge even tougher was the fact that the man was a master of espionage. His moles had burrowed deep into the Navy hierarchy to leak him a stream of military secrets, thwarting previous efforts to bring him to justice. The target was not a terrorist, nor a spy for a foreign power, nor the...

    Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group, labeled the so-called charity "a slush fund for the Clintons. Only a small fraction of the money raised is distributed as aid. The vast bulk of the money is used on administration, travel, salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends." Clinton Foundation spokesman Craig Minassian asserted that "no laws have been broken. How any charitable trust spends the funds it receives is a matter of discretion. The donors all gave voluntarily.

At least one of these super PAC leaders, Katie Packer of OPP, met behind closed doors at the RNC Spring Meeting this week in Florida. Packer states that a republican candidate should "uphold orthodox GOP ideology."

And it's why I think we should look at going toward rules-based money supply, ideally tied to gold, so you have stability."

Now evidence suggests Shearer, working with his partner Blumenthal,...

That charitable foundation was run by an official with a regional health ministry who had the authority to make pharmaceutical purchasing decisions.

    This morning, the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee held a hearing on the case of the Democrats caught accepting bribes in exchange for voting against voter ID in the state. The case against the Democrats is well-documented, yet Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, scuttled it shortly after she took office. Kane also accused the career investigators who built the case of racism. That charge doesn’t stand up to any level of scrutiny. The investigation targeted Republicans and Democrats, male and female, black and white. As it so happens, only Democrats chose to accept the bribes, and those members...

  • Former New Orleans mayor indicted on federal corruption charges

    As part of the alleged bribes, Nagin's family members received a vacation in Hawaii; first-class airfare to Jamaica; private jet travel and a limousine for New York City totaling $23,500; and cellular phone service, the indictment said.

Other contracts were for sidewalk repairs in the French Quarter and professional services, authorities allege. Among the conspiracy charges is an accusation that Nagin...

    WASHINGTON — The Affordable Care Act is the biggest new health care program in decades, but the Obama administration has ruled that neither the federal insurance exchange nor the federal subsidies paid to insurance companies on behalf of low-income people are “federal health care programs.” The surprise decision, disclosed last week, exempts subsidized health insurance from a law that bans rebates, kickbacks, bribes and certain other financial arrangements in federal health programs, stripping law enforcement of a powerful tool used to fight fraud in other health care programs, like Medicare. The main purpose of the anti-kickback law, as described by...

    The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS) has filed a lawsuit today in federal court to halt the unlawful revisions to ObamaCare (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). The separation of powers required by the Constitution prohibits the executive branch—the Obama Administration—from rewriting laws passed by Congress. Yet that is what Obama has done by changing key parts of ObamaCare in order to implement it. The AAPS lawsuit, which was filed today in the Eastern District of Wisconsin, asks the Court to enjoin the Obama Administration from imposing its "individual mandate" while delaying the "employer mandate." The law...

    A question apparently being raised in next week’s trial in Cairo of Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leaders facing criminal charges is this: Was the Obama administration paying bribes as large as $850,000 a year to the Morsi government that were distributed by top ministerial level officials to Muslim Brotherhood leaders, with the direct involvement of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo? WND is in possession of an official document from inside the Morsi government that lends credibility to a report published in Arabic by an Egyptian newspaper in Cairo that lists the charges brought by the current military-controlled government against Egyptian Muslim...

    Egypt’s Attorney General Hisham Barakat is looking into evidence that arrested Muslim Brotherhood leaders accepted bribes from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, according to a report from Almesryoon, an Egyptian newspaper that cites a “judicial source”. The trials that are scheduled to begin in Cairo on August 25th will feature a litany of charges against the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Included among them are murders, assassinations, prison escapes, sniping, indiscriminate killing of demonstrators, and collaborating with foreign governments, to include both the United States and Qatar. Evidence we have obtained lends credibility to the charges of “gifts (bribes) being taken in...

The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the...
