The former president's appearance featured a 90 minute interview with...

    The Republican National Committee wants to know why Bill Clinton’s former adviser purchased the house in California that Bill Clinton’s black sheep half-brother Roger lives in. An RNC memo from chief strategist Sean Spicer spells out the mystery: Justin Cooper owns an almost $900,000 home in the lush hills of an upscale Los Angeles suburb. But interestingly enough, he doesn’t live there. Roger Clinton does. Cooper is Bill Clinton’s body man turned wheeler-dealer. He’s gone from making a modest salary working in the White House to setting up an LLC just to buy a home for the president’s brother to...

    A familiar mistrust descends. hopes that Mr Obama and his Cuban counterpart, Raúl Castro, would end a 50-year freeze in relations between their countries have proved wildly premature. Mr Obama began with some gestures. The latest round of talks took place in late February. They were overshadowed by familiar rows. The American officials demanded the release of Alan Gross, who was working under contract to USAID and was arrested in Havana in December. His family says he was helping Jewish groups in Cuba ... Four days after the talks Orlando Zapata, an imprisoned dissident, died in custody in a Havana...

    Keeping up with his ‘man of the people image‘ Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has purchased this third house, a $600,000 lakefront vacation chalet in Champlain Islands. bernie and hillary Part of the traditional campaign negotiations between various camps is the willingness of the endorsed candidate to absorb the campaign debt of the endorser. The tighter the race, the more value is assigned to it. Subsequently, it shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise to see Sanders financially benefiting from his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. How else does a Senator afford three homes on a congressional salary. Senator Sanders owns one house...

    Iran might have a video of America's $400 million cash payment to the regime after all -- even though Donald Trump backed off such claims early Friday amid intense criticism. An apparent Iranian TV documentary in February about the prisoner swap in fact shows pallets of cash, which the narrator indicates is the $400 million payment in question. The video was posted to YouTube this week, after new controversy erupted over the payout. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that the payment, made in cash, coincided with the release of four Americans, fueling charges that the U.S. paid...

    Here’s The Iranian Video Of “Hostages for Pallets of Money” CNN and Washington Post Claim Doesn’t Exist… This is a great example of the current state, and competence, of American Journalism. Worse yet, this example shows the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, didn’t even know what’s going on, and Vice-Presidential Candidate Tim Kaine also joins the crew of the clueless. CNN and The Washington Post are both making an absurd attack Donald Trump story out of the most simple and easy to prove claim. Donald Trump said there was video (yes, that’s a screen grab of the video above),...

    EXCLUSIVE: Who said there is no upside being on the wrong side of Donald Trump? Fox News Channel star Megyn Kelly is closing on a deal with HarperCollins to write a book at what sources said is in the range of a whopping $10 million for world rights. Her reps are denying that number — I heard it’s closer to $11 million — but they confirm she has made the deal for a book to be published in the fall. They’re not calling it a memoir, but that’s what I heard on the book circuit all day.

    Unbelievable: SHADY Nigerian official gave MILLIONS to Clinton Foundation while Hillary COVERED for BOKO HARAM The Hillary scandals are getting so bad that it really does seem like we’re making them up, but we’re not. The latest is an attempt to solve the mystery behind why the government was so late to designating Boko Haram a “terrorist organization.” Unbelievably, it might have to do with a million dollar donor to the Clinton Foundation and his possible terrorist ties: A conservative group is suing the State Department in an effort to find out whether the agency’s refusal to place Boko Haram...
