    The Clintons were "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2000 ... now, after Hillary's 4 years as Secretary of State and 4 years running for the 2016 presidency, they are worth $125 million. If she wins in November, where will their net worth be in 2020 or 2024? Asking for Freepers usually well-informed opinions.

    The Turkish Incirlik airbase in Adana, Turkey, which houses NATO forces, U.S. forces and at least 50 nuclear devices, experienced massive protests this week, yet the media and President Barack Obama have been conspicuously silent. Turkish citizens stormed the base, protesting U.S. presence there. RT reported that regional media was covering the protests, and social media reports indicated that there may have been up to 1,000 protesters present. According to RT, protesters were heard yelling anti-America and anti-Israel slogans and seen burning the U.S. and Israeli flag. According to the U.S. State Department, the consulate was closed during the protests.

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is threatening to leave the World Trade Organization and rip up agreements like the North American Free Trade agreement, and his critics predictably are branding him everything from "wrong-headed" to "insane." But here's the real deal. When our politicians and diplomats negotiate trade deals, we lose because they don't know a good deal from a bad one. For instance, when President Bill Clinton signed NAFTA in 1993, he believed it would "create 200,000 jobs in this country by 1995 alone." Instead, the U.S. has lost over 700,000 jobs, according to the Economic Policy Institute, while...

    Hillary Clinton said she was not interested in taking away guns from Americans during her acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday, in spite of her past comments on the issue. "If we’re serious about keeping our country safe, we also can't afford to have a president who's in the pocket of the gun lobby," Clinton said in her speech. "I'm not here to repeal the Second Amendment. I'm not here to take away your guns. I just don't want you to be shot by someone who shouldn't have a gun in the first place." "We should be...

    The Russian military has reportedly sent biological warfare teams to the Russian arctic in northern Siberia after at least 40 people and 1,200 reindeer died as the result of a violent and rapid spread of what is believed to be Bacillus Anthracis, more commonly known as Anthrax. Russian officials said the infection may have started after a contaminated corpse was exposed following a warm summer in the Arctic which saw temperatures rise as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit. There were dramatic scenes as the Russian army’s Chemical, Radioactive and Biological Protection Corps, equipped with masks and bio-warfare protective clothing, flew...

    Even after Philadelphia, the momentum of the race to the White House points in Trump’s direction. After what even critics said was a highly effective Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton appears to have emerged as . . . the underdog. Conventional wisdom has long held that Mrs. Clinton will capture the White House in November, regardless of the challenges her candidacy faces. With three months to go, that calculus looks shaky. The 2016 election is trending toward Donald Trump. Mr. Trump is surging as well in swing states, where he is now slightly ahead, within the margin of error, or...

Corruption and incompetence were excused. Politicians in Washington have done too little too slowly to fix it. This situation can never happen again, and when Donald J. Trump is president, it will be fixed – fast. The guiding principle of the Trump plan is ensuring veterans have convenient access to the best quality care. To further this principle, the Trump plan will decrease wait times, improve healthcare outcomes, and facilitate a seamless...

    Obama really said this Wednesday night: “I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” You don’t say, Mr. President?

Hillary ran the Bimbo Eruptions Unit. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Hillary wrote “It Takes a Village.” Teddy Roosevelt...

A trove of stolen e-mails from the party — released last week — resulted in the downfall of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who resigned as a result of explosive revelations. The Justice Department’s national-security division is investigating the cyber attacks. The FBI warned the Clinton campaign in March that it...
