    Oilpro ^ | 5/27/16 | Jeff Reed posted
    Trump's plan presents a stark contrast between the visions of Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Trump said, American energy dominance will be a strategic, economic, and foreign policy goal of the United States... "We will become, and stay, totally independent of any need to import energy from the OPEC cartel or any nations hostile to our interests...At the same time, we will work with our Gulf allies to develop a positive energy relationship as part of our anti-terrorism strategy."

    American Thinker ^ | May 27, 2016 | Scott S. Powell
    When James Comey was appointed FBI Director by President Obama, he became the “hands on” chief law enforcement officer of the U.S. As he laid his hand on the Bible and recited his oath of office on September 4, 2013, swearing to “faithfully discharge the duties of the office… without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion,” Mr. Comey never thought he would face indicting the heir apparent leader of the party under which he would serve. The facts known about Secretary Hillary Clinton’s actions surrounding the use of an unsecure private email server for conducting State Department business, show...

    Today Politico has an important story on the fate of Petty Officer First Class Kristian Saucier. Saucier pleaded guilty Friday to taking cell phone pictures of the engine room of his submarine: Last July, Saucier was indicted on one felony count of unlawful retention of national defense information and another felony count of obstruction of justice. He pleaded guilty Friday to the classified information charge, which is part of the Espionage Act, a prosecution spokesman confirmed. No charge of espionage was filed and no public suggestion has been made that he ever planned to disclose the photos to anyone outside...

    The list of New York’s legendary crime families — the Bonannos, Colombos, Gambinos, Genoveses, and Luccheses — requires this addition: The Clintons. Hardly a day passes without Hillary, Bill, or one of their gang landing in hot water. The Clintons’ inner circle teems with people embroiled in scandal, under investigation, or heading into or out of jail. In a report that surfaced Wednesday, the State Department inspector general pulverized Hillary’s claims that her outlaw e-mail server was perfectly legal. The report said that Hillary “did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records...

    Hillary Clinton met with the Chinese businessman at the center of a federal investigation into Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) during a 2013 fundraiser at her Washington, D.C. home, according to a Time report. Clinton shook hands with Wang Wenliang during the Sept. 30 event. Less than a month later, Wang would donate $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation, ultimately pledging a total of $2 million to the foundation throughout the year. McAuliffe, who was on the board of the Clinton Global Initiative, invited Wang to the fundraiser three weeks after one of the businessman’s companies, West Legend Corp., contributed $60,000...

    President Obama dodged a question about Hillary Clinton's email controversy and her paid speeches to Wall Street on Thursday. At the end of a press conference in Ise Shima, Japan, on Thursday, Obama told reporters that "as a special bonus, I’m going to take one more question, go ahead." A reporter than asked Obama about a State Department inspector general report released Wednesday that said Clinton and her aides didn't comply with agency records-keeping policies. “Just yesterday we saw the State Department’s inspector general put out a report about Secretary Clinton’s emails. It basically undermines some of what she’s said...

    Over the months, Hillary Clinton misstated key facts about her use of private email and her own server for her work as secretary of state, the department's inspector general reported this week. According to the findings, she claimed approval she didn't have and declined to be interviewed for the report despite saying "I'm more than ready to talk to anybody anytime." Scrutiny of her unusual email practices appeared to be unwelcome, despite her contention those practices were well known and "fully above board." A look at some of Clinton's past claims about her unusual email set-up and how they compare...

    WASHINGTON -- The essential issues in Hillary Clinton's widening email scandal have always been her judgment and her imperious belief that the government's rules didn't apply to her. After multiple denials from Clinton that she did anything wrong, insisting she had broken no rules by using a private email system, the State Department's inspector general released a stinging report Thursday, criticizing her for using a high-risk, unsecured home-computer system to send emails that, we now know, contained classified information. In a lengthy report, the IG said that "beginning in late 2005 and continuing through 2011," the department had toughened its...

    Hillary Clinton spent yesterday doing damage control after the release of the Inspector General report on her use of a secret e-mail server exposed her continuous stream of lies over the last 15 months on the topic. As part of that effort, Hillary called into Meet the Press Daily, where Chuck Todd took a skeptical view of the spin coming from Team Hillary, as Leah Barkoukis notes at Townhall. Todd zeroed in on one statement from the IG report in which Hillary refused to use an official State Department e-mail. Until yesterday, Hillary claimed she wanted one system for “convenience,”...

    If the Trump/Sanders debate proceeds as planned in California, you’re about to witness one of the most important moments of a 2016 general election that hasn’t even begun yet. To say such a debate would be an unmitigated disaster for Hillary Clinton would be the understatement of the century. Let’s explore why. First of all, Hillary Clinton outright rejected a debate request from Bernie Sanders ahead of the June 7th California primary. Given Sanders’ recent momentum, as well as her need to persuade a significant number of his supporters to back her in November; such a denial was not only...

    After the latest State Department announcement that Hillary Clinton violated government rules, Judge Andrew Napolitano definitively says there is now ample evidence to indict. Sadly, he is much less certain on whether or not the indictment will actually come. Here is Napolitano's case as he laid it out to Bill O'reilly: "Today is a big deal for a couple of reasons. First, it directly refutes a statement she has made dozens of times, 'it was allowed', we now know that it was not allowed. She never even asked." "She signed a two page statement under oath on her first day...

Cooper obviously had the authority, access, and ability to access and shut down the server used by State Department employees, diplomats, and ambassadors to communicate with the Secretary of State. And apparently the server was also used by Bill Clinton’s aides for his business, as we reported last September. The Clintons are very interested in Cooper’s legal issues. Columnist Monica Crowley reported that the Clintons are now paying Cooper’s legal bills. That’s interesting, isn’t it? The “all in the family” approach of the Clintons to the operation of the private server makes a mockery of security. Not only could...

    The news on Donald Trump and veterans hasn’t been very flattering this week, but recent Morning Consult surveys show that members of the military and their families largely back the presumptive GOP nominee in the race for the White House. Almost half of veterans and voters who belong to veteran households (47 percent) picked Donald Trump as their presidential nominee in surveys taken from May 13 through May 24. Of the 1,668 military voters polled, only 38 percent support former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee. Fourteen percent of military voters remain undecided....

Refusing to use government email for government work was a violation of policy, while Team Clinton’s routing of said emails through a private server, then putting classified information on it—including above top secret information from the Intelligence Community—looks like a violation of several federal laws. Early denials from the Clinton camp tried to make the entire matter go away, insisting there was...

At a debate with Bernie Sanders in New York in early April, Hillary Clinton said she doesn’t support fracking, unless certain conditions are met, such as acceptance from the community and full disclosure of the chemicals that will be used in the process of releasing oil and gas from shale rock. Just four years ago, however, she was quick to point fingers at communities abroad who were fighting proposed fracking projects in Poland,...

    [...] Elizabeth Warren delivered an extensive, blistering speech last night about Trump that will serve as a template for how Democrats will attack him — both in terms of how they’ll prosecute his business past and how they’ll try to undercut his central arguments about the economy.

    Truncated title. Full title: State Department Inspector General’s report demolishes Hillary’s excuses about her private email server The 83 page State Department Inspector General’s report on Hillary Clinton’s private email server puts the lie to many of Hillary Clinton’s repeated claims about her unprecedented private email server. No, it was not permitted, and she never asked. And if she had asked, she would have been told it was not permitted. Even the Washington Post editorial board is appalled, publishing a collective rebuke titled, “Clinton’s inexcusable, willful disregard for the rules.” The “rules” she disregarded were adopted to implement federal law,...

    The Obama administration continues to suppress at least 12 versions of a 451-page draft indictment charging Hillary Clinton with criminal misconduct in the Whitewater case, according to an index in the National Archives obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request by the Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch. One of the indictments specifically lists “overt acts” allegedly committed by the former first lady. It follows Judicial Watch’s release on Jan. 28 of 246 pages of previously undisclosed internal memos from Ken Starr’s Office of Independent Council investigation in 1998. The memos showed prosecutors had evidence that Hillary Clinton and her associate...

    McAuliffe: 'I have never lobbied for a foreign government' BY GRAHAM MOOMAW Richmond Times-Dispatch | Posted: Thursday, May 26, 2016 11:00 am Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Thursday that he has never lobbied in the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government, adding that federal investigators looking into his foreign connections are focused on a "very specific" lobbyist registration issue. "I have never lobbied for a foreign government here. Ever," McAuliffe said during a morning radio appearance on Richmond's WRVA. The Democratic governor's remarks come a day after his attorney said the Department of Justice is looking into a potential violation...

    The long security lines at U.S. airports are another problem for Hillary Clinton. A lot of Americans interact with the Transportation Security Administration, and they expect that agency to function properly. And when there is a problem, they want it fixed. Does anyone think of Clinton as a problem-solver? Answer: No. Can anyone think of a problem she has ever solved?

    With the Clintons you can always count on one thing - it's never the crime; it's the cover-up. For more than a year former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has insisted her use of a private email server during her tenure at State was no big deal - nothing her predecessors didn't do. Mrs. Clinton has insisted she would "talk to anybody, any time" about the emails, adding, I've encouraged all of [my staff] to be very forthcoming." Her three top staffers, including Huma Abedin, all refused to talk to the inspector general. Clinton has insisted her information was secure....

    Nowhere left to hide. It’s not news to you or to me that Hillary is a shameless liar, nor is it any shocking revelation that she’s fairly bad at it. It’s always obvious when she’s lying - yes, I know, her lips are moving - because she doesn’t know how to appear sincere, she doesn’t cover her tracks very well and she easily gets flustered whenever someone doesn’t just accept her nonsense at face value. But it’s one thing for you and me to know Hillary is a liar. We’ve been there for decades. It’s another thing entirely when the...
