    Sen Chuck Grassley has written two letter to the State Dept. concerning a special arrangement for Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser. At the same time Abedin worked for the State Dept, she also worked for a company called Teneo. For those of you who don’t know it, Teneo bills itself as an expert in helping your company get government contracts. Can you see the obvious conflict of interest here? The Senate is trying to find out if Teneo’s clients received government grants and if they did, was Abedin and or Hillary involved? Abedin also had a private email account that...

    Senator Chuck Grassley has sent two letters to the State Department to ask about Huma Abedin's special government status when she was a government employee--and for information on Abedin's email use while working for the government. Abedin is a close aide to Hillary Clinton, and worked for the consulting firm Teneo (under a special government employee status) while working for Clinton. "I am writing to follow up on inquiries I have been making since June 13, 2013 and August 15, 2013 regarding the State Department’s use of Special Government Employee (SGE) designations, and in particular, what steps the Department took...

    BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon. According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department. He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core...

    Author and purported Clinton insider Ed Klein has a theory about how the Hillary Clinton email controversy came about: it was sparked by President Barack Obama and ordered by senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. Appearing on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning, Klein said he’s not the only one who buys into that explanation, and that Bill Clinton also believes it. According to Klein’s sources, the White House is leaking information to their “friends in the mainstream media” about Hillary’s actions as Secretary of State. Klein also said his sources from within the White House told him that Hillary is under six...

    Transparency: Hillary Clinton insists she did everything by the book, that she broke no laws and heeded all regulations. That book is obviously not the State Department records management handbook. The government's book says that you don't get to keep materials, classified or unclassified, in your personal possession and then get to sift through them at your leisure to decide which ones the government that paid you gets to see. All documents are the property of the government. The State Department determines which ones are returned to you. As Shannen W. Coffin, a contributing editor at National Review and senior...

    Maybe more than at any point in her life, even during her 2008 bid for the White House, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s past and associations are coming under intense scrutiny in mainstream press outlets. From her potentially unsecure, private email account to the Clinton Foundation’s suspect fundraising methods, Clinton’s past is apparently anything but unimpeachable. One positive thing you can say for sure about the secretary is that she takes care of her friends. Apparently, former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) wife and longtime Clinton confidant Huma Abedin was especially well cared for. According to a New York Times...

    By Frank J. Gaffney Jr. - - March 6, 2015 Huma Abedin’s Private Emails and the Muslim Brotherhood Hillary Clinton’s Emailgate scandal is becoming more problematic by the day. Turns out she exclusively used a private email account while personally prohibiting other State Department employees from doing the same. One other State Department official evidently violated this policy: Mrs. Clinton‘s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin. Her emails are of particular interest insofar as Ms. Abedin has extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. That’s the Islamist organization whose self-declared mission is “destroying Western civilization from within.”

    Escalating concerns over the integrity of operations at the State Department and over financial reports of the Clinton Foundation could seem a sideshow compared to a transaction announced at the start of this year, wherein associates of Bill and Hillary Clinton may have attempted to monetize their participation in Clinton family philanthropic activities. The transaction in focus involves an organization called Teneo Holdings, formed in 2011 by Doug Band and Declan Kelly–according to press reports, financial powerhouse BC Partners may have purchased a minority stake in Teneo Holdings late in 2014 or early in 2015. Teneo is a relative newcomer...

    When folks like Andrew McCarthy articulated why our findings about then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s close adviser Huma Abedin were important, his camp was smeared as being discriminatory. His argument had nothing to do with discrimination or Islamophobia. It had everything to do with Abedin’s familial ties compromising her judgment and allegiances to the U.S. Constitution. Here we have an example that demonstrates this reality further and it comes via Kenneth Timmerman, who has picked up on the fact that the new Secretary of State – John Kerry – has a son-in-law with family still living in Iran.

Chicago Ideas Week executive director Jessica Malkin said the organization believes this will be Clinton’s first "public book event." After Clinton’s remarks, she will be interviewed on stage by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Malkin said.

    Hillary Clinton has already sold one million copies of her book, according to Mike Allen. Her book, Hard Choices, is set to be released next month. "EXCLUSIVE: The initial printing of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 'Hard Choices,' out June 10 from Simon & Schuster, was 1 million books – and sold out after the publisher’s unconventional “reveal” of giving Vogue a Mother’s Day excerpt. That’s a real spike, and the figure doesn’t include retail preorders: Bookstores and other retailers ordered 1 million for further sale to the public -- a seal of approval from the booksellers that people will want to...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton writes in new excerpts from her upcoming book that she wishes she could go back and reconsider some of her past decisions but she is "proud of what we accomplished" during her time as secretary of state. Clinton, a potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, writes in an author's note released Tuesday that her four years running the State Department for President Barack Obama taught her about the United States' "exceptional strengths and what it will take for us to compete and thrive at home and abroad." "As is usually the case with the benefit...

    Hillary Clinton is hitting the road—but not the campaign trail. The potential 2016 presidential candidate is lining up events promoting her memoir about her time as secretary of state. So far, only four cities have been announced and the events are being described as a “conversation” with Clinton. The book tour to discuss “Hard Choices” includes two stops in Canada – Toronto on June 16 and Edmonton on June 18 – and then one in Austin, Texas on June 20 and San Francisco, Calif. on June 25. The book comes out on June 10, and tickets range in price from...
  • If Hillary wins, does Huma Abedin gets access to the WH? If so, what about her hubby Anthony Weiner?

    If Hillary wins, would Huma Abedin, Hillary's long-time aide (and presently working at the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation) have access to the White House? It would seem so. Given that, would her husband - Anthony Weiner - at least have a modicum of access to the White House, too? Bill and Tony: the not-so-odd-couple? Scandals magnifique?

    Hillary Clinton is coming under scrutiny for serial fiascoes that occurred while she was Secretary of State. It’s about time. These are among the decisions that Hillary made, or at least presided over, that are emerging as real liabilities – for the country, as well as for her future presidential prospects: Mrs. Clinton refused to designate Nigeria’s Boko Haram as a terrorist group when various other government agencies urged to do so, long before it grabbed international headlines by kidnapping hundreds of schoolgirls. She personally engineered the opening of formal relations with the Muslim Brotherhood before it came to power...

    For years, the terrorist organization Boko Haram has been murdering people throughout Nigeria. Last year in July they killed 42 children in an attack on a school. Two months later, they murdered another 40 people at a college. Hundreds have been massacred by these disgusting excuses for human beings for years. Today, and for the past few weeks, the Twitter "hashtag" #bringbackourgirls has been sweeping the site. Just a simple Twitter search of it will turn up thousands of tweets saying the same thing. Possibly the most famous of these tweets was First Lady Michelle Obama tweeting out a picture...
  • Limbaugh: Hillary Didn't Declare Boko Haram a Terrorist Group 'Because They're Black'

    On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh presented his theory as to why then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t declare Boko Haram a terrorist group back in President Barack Obama’s first term, which he declared to be based on race. “How many people do you think know that this terror group, Boko Haram, has been attacking Christians since 2009?” he said. “The jihad aspect of Boko Haram is almost completely ignored by the White House and the media. And I can tell you why – I just saw why. There’s video that has been released of about half...
  • Hillary’s War on Nigerian Women is about Benghazi

    Shoebat Foundation ^ | May 9, 2014 | Ben Barrack
    What Hillary Clinton is attempting to do is – in a word – despicable. A few days after the ‘Smoking gun’ Benghazi email was revealed by Judicial Watch; two days after House Speaker John Boehner announced that he would form a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi; one day before Rep. Trey Gowdy was tapped to lead it; and one day after we revealed a Muslim Brotherhood connection to the email at Shoebat.com, Hillary Clinton attempted to pivot public attention toward the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls. The motive behind her doing this should be transparently obvious. She is attempting...

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says people who are criticizing Hillary Clinton over her handling of the Benghazi attacks are engaging in “cheap politics,” and that both she and Jeb Bush would be “quality” presidential choices. -snip- Bloomberg said he considers as friends both Clinton, a Democrat, and Bush, the Republican former governor of Florida. Like Clinton, Bush is pondering a run for the White House in 2016. “Jeb’s on the board of the [Bloomberg] Foundation,” the billionaire ex-mayor said. “I think he did a very good job on education in Florida. He’s good on education. He’s good...
