    Inside ‘Bill Clinton Inc.’: Hacked memo reveals intersection of charity and personal income When top Bill Clinton aide Douglas Band wrote the memo, he was a central player at the Clinton Foundation and president of his own corporate consulting firm. Over the course of 13 pages, he made a case that his multiple roles had served the interests of the Clinton family and its charity. In doing so, Band also detailed a circle of enrichment in which he raised money for the Clinton Foundation from top-tier corporations such as Dow Chemical and Coca-Cola that were clients of his firm, Teneo,...

    According to Temple security, a group of over 150 juveniles coordinated a “meet up” on Instagram, amassing on Broad Street near the campus at approximately 8 p.m. Four youths, ranging in ages between 14 and 17, were arrested in connection with wide-ranging attacks on Temple students, others in the crowd, and two Temple police officers that seemed to mimic the “flash mobs” that hit Center City in recent years. In one incident, police say a group of three that included two students were assaulted by a group of about 20 juveniles. The trio were kicked, punched, and knocked to the...

    Part III of the undercover Project Veritas Action investigation dives further into the back room dealings of Democratic politics. It exposes prohibited communications between Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC and the non-profit organization Americans United for Change. And, it’s all disguised as a duck. In this video, several Project Veritas Action undercover journalists catch Democracy Partners founder directly implicating Hillary Clinton in FEC violations. “In the end, it was the candidate, Hillary Clinton, the future president of the United States, who wanted ducks on the ground,” says Creamer in one of several exchanges.

    One of the strongest arguments that shows how much Hillary hates women is her effort to ensure that a man who raped a 12-year-old girl got off with a one-year sentence. But liberals say Hillary was just doing what she was supposed to do: use any legal trickery to ensure that the guilty walk. This is the corrupted vision of what a fair trial is. It is what liberals have been foisting on America since the Warren Court made up rights to protect criminals. A fair trial is one where the innocent are found innocent and the guilty are found...

    The Obama administration’s Justice Department has investigated three senior officials for mishandling classified information over the past two years but only one faces a felony conviction, possible jail time and a humiliation that will ruin his career: former Joint Chiefs of Staff vice chairman Gen. James E. Cartwright. The FBI’s handling of the case stands in stark contrast to its treatment of Hillary Clinton and retired Gen. David Petraeus — and it reeks of political considerations. Monday marked a stunning fall from grace for Cartwright, the man once known as “Obama’s favorite general,” who pleaded guilty to the felony charge...

    In the 2016 presidential election, one candidate is warning about voter fraud, while another proclaims Russians are interfering. It’s not the first time contenders have alleged some form of a “rigged” election. Tuesday in the Rose Garden, President Barack Obama dismissed concerns of fraud. “I have never seen in my lifetime, or in modern political history, any presidential candidate trying to discredit the elections process before votes have even taken place. It’s unprecedented,” Obama said. “There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part because they are so decentralized...

Adams, who was the Voting Section Attorney at the US Department of Justice, filed six suits in the past year against Philadelphia and Broward County, Florida where the voter rolls are corrupted. Adams said he had one case in Texas where the person died in 1944. Far left groups continually sue to keep the voter rolls the way they are. The Obama administration has no desire to clean up these voter rolls.

The boy never returned home after going sledding on a late winter evening. His body was found days later underneath a footbridge near his home with 14 stab wounds. Investigators never found the killer. The Ann Arbor News ran a story about the...

I believe billions of dollars have gone into secret bank accounts of these traitorous criminals. I don't think there's any other way to explain what's going on here.

    Donald Trump should have offered Hillary Clinton a pardon instead. That way he would have appeared more magnanimous than mean. After all, President Gerald Ford did pardon ex-President Richard Nixon in 1974 over the Watergate break in scandal. And, like Clinton and her lost and destroyed classified emails, Nixon was never charged in court with any crime. He resigned only after he faced impeachment and removal from office. The criminal charges would have come later.

According to Swedish customs authorities, batons are being illegally ordered abroad by Swedish citizens for self-defense.Swedish authorities were obviously taken aback by the findings and failed to produce a reasonable explanation. We honestly do not know why people have started to smuggle more batons," Mats Pettersson argued. "Most people we talked to said they need batons to protect themselves and don't intend to use them for criminal activities," Mats Pettersson continued.

The Associated Press, not exactly a bastion of conservative propaganda, reported in late August that “more...

    The latest round brings to 774 the number of sentences Obama has commuted, including 590 this year. The White House says it’s more than the previous 11 presidents put together. Almost all of those receiving commutations were convicted of drug-related offenses. Most are considered nonviolent offenders, although some were convicted of firearms charges in connection with drug crimes. Many of the recipients had been serving life sentences.

    . . . and here come the bans Because you didn’t think anything freakier than the presidential election was possible this year, I’ve got good news! Apparently people can go absolutely ape-s*** insane over weirdos dressed up in grease paint and wigs just as much as when they walk into a primary voting booth. Brain-teaser: Which is easier?

I don’t know who made the brilliant decision to start covering the sightings of random creepy clowns as if it was serious news, and but I do...

    It isn’t cheap to get on Hillary Clinton’s good side, but if you’ve got enough money to make a million-dollar donation to the Clinton Foundation, you are set. Say goodbye to federal regulations or bureaucratic red tape. Make a donation, get on Hillary’s good side, and you are in. This is pay-to-play, and it goes against every ethics standard in the book. No wonder Hillary Clinton lives by it. In his new book, Guilty as Sin, Ed Klein exposes Hillary’s pay-to-play scandals and how she turned the Clinton Foundation into a subsidiary of the State Department. It didn’t take too...

    Clinton Foundation officials quietly refiled three years of tax-related forms this week after the New York attorney general acknowledged the charity had failed to disclose all of its donors in accordance with state law.Two entities operating within the Clintons' sprawling philanthropic network — the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative — submitted supplementary financial disclosures for different years between 2012 and 2014 while denying Tuesday that the attorney general's office had asked them to do so. "The Clinton Foundation is properly registered to solicit funds under Article 7A, which requires organizations to register before they solicit funds...
