  • Vanity: Why No More Releases About Democrat Election Corruption This Week?

    Things have gone awfully quiet after the memo was released. The little that has come out continues to point to horrendous Democrat corruption to steal the election and deny Trump the ability to govern. Why have things gone quiet the last week or ten days? I was hoping for a full-court press to bring the criminals to justice. Are people waiting for the DOJ IG report? Waiting for the mid-term election season to ramp up before dumping more info?

    A former senior Peace Corps official agreed to cooperate with any law enforcement investigations surrounding a scheme that funneled millions of Department of State dollars to a nonprofit founded and run by former Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, recently published court documents show. Warren “Buck” Buckingham agreed to cooperate as a condition of an agreement with the Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney’s Office that would keep him from facing prosecution for a related illegal lobbying charge, court documents filed Thursday and made public Tuesday show.

    Local authorities were warned two and a half months prior to the massacre in a Florida high school that accused shooter Nikolas Cruz had “used a gun against people before,” according to a disturbing new report. The chilling details on Cruz’s troubled past were revealed in 911 records obtained by CNN.

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. In a year and a few months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will have spent more time at the helm of the Israeli government than any other man. The other man is David Ben-Gurion, the Socialist leader who repressed Zionist nationalist movements in Israel by fiat, by law and, as in the Altalena, by murder. That factoid may not matter much to most people, even most Israelis, but it matters a great deal to the remnants of...

  • 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...

    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.

    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...
