    The brother of a slain Border Patrol agent says Donald Trump has promised answers about the Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” program leading to Brian Terry’s death. Kent Terry met with Trump, and says the presumptive Republican nominee will use his authority to act if he’s elected president, Terry said in a Twitter post Tuesday.“Mr. Trump said ‘It’s a shame Fast and Furious started and shame on them for what they are doing about it,” Terry explained to this column, referring to an event at a community college in Michigan (see photo).  “When I become president I will open the books...
  • Obama just got one giant step closer towards creating a national gun registry

    President Obama is taking a big step towards creating a national gun registry. Hawaii looks like it is about to provide the federal government with the list of all the gun owners in the state. Supposedly, keeping a list of gun owners’ names will enable the FBI to tell police if a gun owner ever gets arrested. But a national gun registry isn’t necessary to do this check. The FBI isn’t the only organization that can do background checks on already existing gun owners. Hawaii already has a gun registry, and can regularly run its list of names to see...

    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...

    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...

"I just have to say the conduct of the former secretary demonstrates why people just don't trust her," the Senate's No. 2 Republican said Thursday. "Her intention has been to obstruct the public's right to know." Cornyn's comments come after the State Department inspector general said that Clinton took steps to make sure her personal email account wasn't "accessible" while she was secretary of State.

    The interviews, we’re told, are focused on whether classified information was mishandled, and the security of the server. So far officials tell us, no, there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing at this point in the investigation, but, again, the investigation is not over.

    Panel discussion on the week's biggest news stories - 55 minutes of fact-based analysis and commentary. Enjoy! Now that the Republican primary has concluded, Donald Trump promises to be the most disruptive presidential candidate in decades. What do his positions on trade and immigration mean for the country, and why are so many “conservatives” so opposed to his candidacy? Across the ocean, London has elected their first Muslim mayor. Along with Merkel’s insistence that borders remain open, is there a way to reverse the Islamification of western culture? Meanwhile, security concerns continue domestically as the FBI busts a would-be terrorist...

    EXCLUSIVE: The Romanian hacker who says he easily breached Hillary Clinton’s personal email server also claimed, in a series of interviews with Fox News, that he spoke with the FBI at length on the plane when extradited from Romania to Virginia last month. "They came after me, a guy from the FBI, from the State Department," 44-year-old Marcel Lehel Lazar, who goes by the moniker "Guccifer," told Fox News during a jailhouse phone interview. He said the conversation was "80 minutes ... recorded," and he took his own notes. A government source confirmed that the hacker had a lot to...

    Since the Highway Serial Killings Initiative began in 2004, ViCAP analysts have compiled a list of more than 750 murder victims found along or near U.S. highways, as well as nearly 450 potential suspects. If there is such a thing as an ideal profession for a serial killer, it may well be as a long-haul truck driver. FBI Crime Analyst Christie Palazzolo is quick to point out that long-haul trucking is an honorable profession and that the overwhelming majority of drivers are not murderers—but it does happen, and the pattern is unmistakable. More than a decade ago, analysts for the...

  • FBI Is Coordinating Its Hillary Interview With Her Campaign Schedule (barf alert!)

    The FBI is reportedly coordinating with Hillary Clinton’s campaign schedule in order to find a time to interview the presidential candidate about her private email server, CNN reports. Investigators have already interviewed several of Clinton’s top State Department aides, including Huma Abedin, the network reported on Thursday. Some of those aides have been interviewed several times. The next step in the investigation — which is looking into whether any classified information was mishandled on Clinton’s server — will be to interview Clinton herself. But that poses a problem because she is in the heat of a presidential campaign. And with...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation is likely to interview Hillary Clinton in the next few weeks about her use of a private email server while she was U.S. secretary of state and have already interviewed some of her aides, CNN reported on Thursday. The nine-month investigation into whether laws were broken as a result of the server kept in her New York home has overshadowed Clinton's campaign to become the Democratic Party's candidate in November's presidential election. With only a few states left to vote in primary elections, she retains a commanding lead over her rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders...

    I have been commenting lately on the assumption that the FBI is now actually doing any Investigating. Found the link on Drudge to CNN article. Says Huma and others have been interviewed. It was done very quietly. Now they are ready for Hillary before they wrap up. Of note, they mention the IT guy who was given immunity and his part in the investigation. I hope I did this correctly. Not intending to break any rules.

    Indictment. That is the term heard increasingly from sources adjacent to the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal that apparently now places her at considerable risk of facing a very serious federal espionage charge. The risk was great enough to require President Obama to come out publicly to warn off the investigation when during an interview he attempted downplay Mrs. Clinton’s “confusion” over federal classified information laws. It was the very same tactic the president used to diminish the earlier IRS scandal and he now appears hopeful he can be just as successful in minimizing the damage to Hillary...
