The Washington Post reports the finding emerged on Friday after Iowa Sen.

    State Department investigators concluded this year that Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Rodham Clintonís closest aides, was overpaid by nearly $10,000 because of violations of rules governing vacation and sick leave during her tenure as an official in the department. The finding ó which Abedin has formally contested ó emerged publicly Friday after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters to Secretary of State John F.

    Donald Trump charged Wednesday that a sexually 'deviant' former congressman who is married to Hillary Clinton's closest aide has likely seen the contents of classified emails that passed through the former secretary of state's private home-brew server. Huma Abedin, the Pakistani-American chief of staff to Clinton, was wed in 2010 to then-Congressman Anthony Weiner, the Democrat whose star fell to earth amid lewd sexting scandals. Republicans in Washington are furious with Clinton for destroying tens of thousands of emails dating from her time in office, and for including classified information in an unknown number of others. Trump told DailyMail.com during...

Words have meaning, and when theyíre not specific, theyíre left to interpretation.

    U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Saturday that she did not use a private email account to send or receive classified information while she was secretary of state, in response to a government inspector's letter this week. "I did not send nor receive anything that was classified at the time," Clinton said at a campaign stop in Iowa. The email controversy has dogged Clinton's bid for the presidency, fuelling worries that the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination has tried to sidestep transparency and record-keeping laws. At least four emails from the private email account that Clinton used while secretary...

    The Department of Justice has been asked to open a criminal investigation into the use of a personal email account by Hillary Rodham Clinton while she was secretary of State, after government investigators concluded that classified information may have been mishandled, U.S. officials said.

    Kerry and Co. have been insisting that we have to keep plowing money into Morsiís Brotherhood regime because itís in Americaís national security interests. Those claims never held much water and they hold even less water now that unnamed Obama officials are warning the military that if it takes power, it will face a loss of that same military aid. U.S. officials said Washington has suggested to Morsi that he call early elections, though they underlined they were demanding specific steps ó and they said they had underlined to Egyptís military that a coup would have consequences for U.S. aid....

    The State Department is denying reports that the U.S. is calling on Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi to schedule early elections. "The reports that we have been urging early elections are inaccurate," State spokesman Jen Psake said at her briefing on Tuesday. She said the U.S. has called for Egypt to allow protests and to respect democracy, both publicly and in private, but that the U.S. had not called for early elections, The Hill reported. Psaki's statement follows a report by CNN that the U.S. had called on Morsi to hold early elections. "We are saying to him, 'Figure out a...

    [snip] Egyptian Chief of Staff Sedki Sobhi announced the military would prevent the regime from violently dispersing the protesters. "The Egyptian army will be in the streets" if there are millions of people to protect, he was quoted as saying. Egyptís military has warned the Muslim Brotherhood not to allow armed security personnel to get involved in the demonstrations or try to disperse them, the source said, because "the army will violently intervene."

  • Are Democratically Elected Dictators Hostile to Freedom "Good" Dictators?

    Democracies sometimes reject freedom. It's MY constitution.Egypt has a new new democratically elected dictator and Venezuela still has her old one. Since they were elected by majorities of the voters they must be good democratic rulers who give the majority what they want. Suppose the majority want to have blasphemers' heads removed? Suppose the majority want to have money taken from the rich because they have been told that will help the poor? Giving the majority what they want is democratic and an effective way to get elected again. Individual freedom? Freedom is unnecessary in some democracies and may even...

    CAIRO: Struggling to subdue continuing street protests, the government of PresidentMohamed Morsi has approved legislation reimposing martial law by calling on the armed forces to keep order and authorizing soldiers to arrest civilians, Egypt's state media reported on Saturday. Morsi has not yet issued the order, the flagship state newspaper Al Ahram reported. But even if merely a threat, the preparation of the measure suggested an escalation in the political battle between Egypt's new Islamist leaders and their secular opponents over an Islamist-backed draft constitution. The standoff has already threatened to derail the culmination of Egypt's promised transition to a...

    It is not only the anti-government protesters in Egypt's Tahrir Square who should be concerned about President Mohammed Morsi's audacious power grab. Mr Morsi's claim at the weekend that "God's will and elections made me the captain of this ship" has echoes of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini's claim during the 1979 Iranian revolution that his mission to overthrow the Shah enjoyed divine guidance. Since his announcement that he was granting himself sweeping new powers, Mr Morsi has been trying to reassure sceptical Egyptian voters that he has no ambition to become Egypt's new Pharaoh. But you only have to look at...

In both cases, the political takeover was enabled by a Democratic U.S. president who had some degree of sympathy for it. In both cases, a moderate U.S. allyóReza Shah Pahlavi and Hosni Mubarak respectivelyówas abandoned in favor of the radicals.In Iranís case, it took another ten years...

    The Obama administration used the IRS to make a Muslim Brotherhood-Clinton-Soros cartel possible. Bashing the Internal Revenue Service is as American as apple pie. Nobody likes paying taxes, even if we realize it is a necessary civic duty. However, todayís indictment of the IRS is not based on the fact that it was a creation of progressive (and racist) Democrat Woodrow Wilson; or that the income tax is a hideously unfair way to tax people, which actually discourages work and production. The truth about todayís IRS is that it is a pure political weapon, fighting on the side of Obama,...

    The Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood has rejected a request by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi to contain the group within the state, describing it as ďa new lie by an infamous tyrantĒ. Sisi called on the Muslim Brotherhood to overcome past conflicts with the state and to turn over a new leaf under his leadership.
