  • No apology, no rebate! Chelsea Clinton's contemptuous husband Marc Mezvinsky has ‘nothing to ....

    Daily Mail (U.K.) ^ | May 12, 2016 | Ben Ashford
    Chelsea Clinton's hedge fund boss husband has refused to apologize to investors - despite losing nearly $25 million in a calamitous gamble on the Greek economy. Marc Mezvinsky, 38, persuaded clients to pour cash into the struggling European country in the hope it would bounce back and deliver massive profits. But after buying up government debt and bank stock, the dramatic upturn he and his partners predicted failed to materialize and the fund's value plunged by an estimated 90 percent. Mezvinsky and former Goldman Sachs colleagues Bennett Grau and Mark Mallon are reported to have finally pulled the plug on...
  • White House’s lies on Iran deal is humiliating for Chuck Schumer

    NY Post ^ | May 6, 2016
    We hope Sens. Chuck Schumer, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand are giving that devastating new profile of resident Obama’s foreign-policy guru a careful read. Because they’ll learn how they were all played for fools on the Iran nuclear deal by that aide, Ben Rhodes — and the resident. That applies especially to Schumer, who will be the Senate Democratic leader come January. Booker and Gillibrand hewed to the party line in backing the deal. Schumer gave it a thumb’s-down — but then refused to lobby his colleagues to take his side. Sen. Bob Menendez, on the other hand, is looking...

    <p>The profile of one Ben Rhodes running in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine is not unsympathetic, which makes it all the more devastating.</p> <p>But, as that quote indicates, he comes off like an overweening little schmuck. This quotation seems to capture his worldview: “He referred to the American foreign policy establishment as the Blob."</p>
  • State Department Hid Key Clinton Benghazi Email from Judicial Watch

    (Washington, DC) – The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014. If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands of emails. The developments come in a July 2014 Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit seeking records related to the drafting and use of the Benghazi talking points (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of...
  • 147 FBI agents involved in Clinton email probe

    A new report says 147 FBI agents are involved in the investigation surrounding Hillary Clinton's private email server and handling of classified material. The Washington Post reports that the large number of agents have been deployed to run down leads in the investigation, citing a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James Comey. The Post reported that the FBI has accelerated its investigation because officials want to avoid potentially announcing any action close to the November election. Comey has signaled that he is personally close to the probe into Clinton's personal email account used during her time as secretary of State.

    FBI investigators are definitely not barking up the wrong tree in their investigation of Hillary Clinton and her most senior advisors, for violations of numerous government regulations regarding the protection of classified information and national security secrets. As it stands right now the FBI might well be making criminal referrals to Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the very near future. It'll be up to President Obama's Department of Justice to prosecute. But based on information leaking out from inside the FBI, the case will be buttoned up so tightly and evidence so overwhelming that the Attorney General will have little...

    Hillary Clinton has already locked up half the Democratic superdelegates in Nevada and South Carolina before the first votes are cast in either state. The former secretary of State has won public support from half of South Carolina's six superdelegates and three of Nevada's eight superdelegates. Bernie Sanders has secured only one, a Democratic national committeewoman from Nevada. The role of superdelegates in the Democratic primary process is coming under new scrutiny after the early voting contests of Iowa and New Hampshire. The superdelegates are made up of Democratic lawmakers and party leaders who can cast a vote for the...

Why say this at all, since it was widely known to be true? Because in August in response to a judge's direction, the State Department asked the FBI for information about what it was up to. Sorry, the FBI said at the...

    Since returning to the campaign trail as an advocate for Hillary, Bill Clinton has been harried by renewed interest in his past sexual misconduct as well as Hillary's alleged role in intimidating his victims into silence. Roger Stone, author of the New York Times bestselling "The Clinton's War On Women", claims that he has personal knowledge of previously unknown victims who are preparing to come forward with accusations against the former president. "I identified 24 women who've been assaulted by Bill Clinton," Stone said on The Sean Hannity Show. "Now some of these women are still terrified. Some of them...

    Blames husband Weiner for failing to notice extra $30K paymentFederal investigators formally investigated top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin for the crime of embezzlement after confirming she took a “Babymoon” vacation and maternity time at the State Department without expending her formal leave, resulting in thousands of dollars of pay she wasn’t entitled to receive, The Washington Times has learned. The probe also gathered evidence she filed timesheets charging the government for impermissible overtime and excessive hours after she converted from a fulltime federal employer to a State Department contractor. Those timecards were filed during a period of time that...

    WASHINGTON—Hillary Clinton, in her last months as secretary of state, helped open the door to a dramatic shift in U.S. policy toward Iran: an acceptance that Tehran would maintain at least some capacity to produce nuclear fuel, according to current and former U.S. officials. In July 2012, Mrs. Clinton’s closest foreign-policy aide, Jake Sullivan, met in secret with Iranian diplomats in Oman, but made no progress in ending the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program. In a string of high-level meetings here over the next six months, the secretary of state and White House concluded that they might have to let...

    An overwhelmed State Department officially asked late Wednesday that the 17 judges pursuing former secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails be shunted aside in favor of a single judge who will oversee the government’s searches and releases. In a filing with the federal district court in Washington, the Obama administration admitted the request was unusual because the cases involve a wide range of documents on unrelated subjects, but said the process is no longer “orderly” and there needs to be a single case where they can make their arguments. “Different judges are being asked to impose a variety of search regimes,...

    We've all heard the phrase: 'You don't have to be mad to work here, but it helps'. But when the company in question was handling the Secretary of State's personal emails, the joke doesn't sound quite so funny. These are the IT firm staff who work at the firm which managed Hillary Clinton's private server - posing as characters from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Platte River Networks employees dressed up like mentally-ill prison inmates in the film of the novel while appearing at a conference and put the pictures on their company Facebook page. The photos were taken...

    Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic nominee for the 2016 election, appears to be growing weary of answering, or not answering fully, questions about her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. During a news conference on Tuesday in Las Vegas, journalist Ed Henry repeatedly asked Clinton about the server and her email. When asked if she had wiped her server clean, Clinton responded by waving her hand in a wiping motion and saying, "What, like with a cloth or something?" It wasn't just the language and the gesture; it was the smirking expression that...

    A federal judge Tuesday blocked a scheduled deposition of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, in a civil lawsuit that claims the Clinton Foundation operated as a criminal organization​.​ The conservative watchdog group​ Freedom ​Watch, which brought the lawsuit against the Clintons, had scheduled separate video-taped depositions for them next week. U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks granted a protective order requested by the Clintons’ lawyers that blocked the depositions until the court resolves their pending motion to dismiss the case and halt discovery. The judge’s order did not include the reasoning for...

    From Bare Naked Islam: Barack Hussein Obama together with Hillary Clinton decided to aid and abet al-Qaeda terrorists and Libyan Muslim Brotherhood jihadists to overthrow U.S. ally Muammar Ghaddafi and replace all the secular leaders in the Middle East with sharia-compliant Muslim Brotherhood governments. Former CIA Operations and Intelligence Analyist, Officer, Clare Lozez, says that “America has switched sides in the war on terror under Barack Obama.” She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Sharia,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim...

George Stephanopoulos, it has been discovered -- and he has apologized for not telling us -- that he has donated $50,000 to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation over the years. Now, see, Snerdley's in there shaking his head, "So what, not surprising." That's the point, right? Not a surprise. He never left the Clinton crime family, is the point. He's not a journalist. He's not an anchorman. He's a political hack. All he did was change his location. But you see, the thing is, once again, there's a...

Guess what Stephanopoulos didn’t declare — his own financial contributions to an organization that Sunlight Foundation official Bill Allison said operates like “a slush fund for the Clintons.” Dylan Byers at Politico discovered a smoking gun aimed at the credibility of Stephanopoulos as a journalist: ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has given $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, charitable contributions that he did not publicly disclose...

A new lawsuit presses for answers A government watchdog group has sued the U.S. State Department for records showing that Huma Abedin, the one-time adviser to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had a sweetheart deal that allowed her to keep her salary while cashing in on the side with a lucrative private-sector consulting contract that could have presented glaring conflicts of interest. Judicial Watch, famous for its litigation over long-languishing Freedom Of Information Act requests, filed suit...

    A new film claims the official government report on the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 is an elaborate fabrication, but the most shocking part of the story is that charges are being leveled by some of the very investigators who put the report together. Six experts who appear in the film were members of the National Transportation Safety Board investigation team that concluded the crash was an accident, but they now claim they were silenced by their superiors. The movies, "TWA Flight 800" will debut on EPIX TV next month, on the 17-year anniversary of the crash.

Just three: me, Allan Wolper of Editor & Publisher and Mr. Wolper’s student at Rutgers, Tina Bui. Mr. Maffeo got a disgusted look. “The press marginalized Jim as a kook,” he said. “And now they walk by him like he’s a dog run over by a semi.” Back in 1997, Mr. Sanders got two swatches of seat material from a disgruntled source...

    WASHINGTON — The State Department has hired an alarming number of law-enforcement agents with criminal or checkered backgrounds because of a flawed hiring process, a stunning memo obtained by The Post reveals. The background problems are severe enough that many of the roughly 2,000 agents in State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security can play only limited roles in agency efforts to police bad conduct and prosecute wrongdoers. ... “Department intakes of new . . . officers since the hiring surge a decade ago have reportedly been flawed, with ‘mitigation’ of troubling histories including criminal matters,” according to a December 2012 memo...

    The State Department has been tainted by an internal memo that revealed security personnel and even diplomats may have committed inappropriate, illegal behavior during overseas trips. Some of the behaviors: One State Department security staffer in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” on embassy guards, and members of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s security team may have “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries,” CBS reported the memo as stating. The prostitution allegation was especially egregious — described as occurring so frequently to rise to the level of “endemic,” CBS said. And one more alleged activity, in the...

    Huma Abedin — Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide and the wife of all-but-declared New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner — spent her final months at the State Department working as a part-time consultant with the agency who at the same time was allowed to represent outside clients, POLITICO has confirmed. Abedin, a fixture at the Clintons’ side for at least 15 years — from Iowa to Indonesia — shifted to her new role after maternity leave in the early summer of 2012, according to a source familiar with the arrangement. The new status made her a “special government employee,” which was...
